The way programming affects the non-dissociative individual may be different than the way programming affects the dissociative individual. Since we, the authors, don’t have experience being non-dissociative, we can’t say for certain. However, if you, as a non-dissociative individual, have opened yourself up to the deception of the Spirit Man programming — or the related “Seat of Dominion” or “Gateways” — you have fragmented yourself. First, by splitting away your spirit/soul from the rest of you; second, by splitting that part of you into several different parts. Therefore, the fractal programming that the Spirit Man programming is based upon will likely affect you the same way it will a dissociative individual. However, finding freedom may be a shorter process for you if there aren’t as many deeply rooted trauma-related issues (such as PTSD, attachment injuries, et cetera) as there are for someone who has a dissociative disorder.
What This is Not
The following list is not a step-by-step “magical formula or spell” that you need to follow religiously and fanatically in order to find freedom. This is not a how-to that details the incantations you need to chant or the rites you need to perform in order to find freedom. These steps are not describing the process on how to order God, angels, or demons about.
What This Is
These steps are suggestions on how to begin building a relationship with God, and from there, you will find freedom from the demonic and from programming. You should not expect to follow these steps in a linear fashion and then toss them aside when you “feel better.” You will need to continually work on confession, repentance, submission, healing, faith, obedience, and humbleness. You will continually need to focus on your Heavenly Father. These aren’t one-time events, but a way of life.
● Confess your rebellion against God.
This is the first step, because if you can’t recognize where you have gone wrong — if you can’t see where you have opened yourself up to the influence of the demonic and opened yourself up to be influenced by the programming — you will see no need for repentance, therefore you will not repent, and you will never find true freedom.
If you aren’t sure whether you have fallen into the trap of programming or have fallen prey to the influence of fallen angels or demons, simply ask God to show you if you have. If He shows you that you have, don’t argue against or try to reason your way out of what He tells you. Just confess and go to the next step: repentance.
● Repent, and ask Him to forgive you.
Repentance has several different meanings within the Bible, but some of them include: to feel remorse; to change one’s mind or purpose; to turn away from or to turn unto.1 For true change and freedom to take place, it is not enough to simply feel remorse. You must turn away from that which is against your Heavenly Father, and turn towards Him. It doesn’t matter if you were in rebellion to God because you were deceived into allowing the demonic to control you or use you, or if you consciously and knowingly rebelled against Him. The important thing is to repent for being out of line with His will and out of line with His Word.
If you feel there is a resistance to repentance, ask Him to help you repent. There may be demonic attachments or influences that are preventing you from repenting, but your Heavenly Father can and will remove the barriers if you ask Him.
There is one major barrier that has the tendency to keep us from moving on to the next step of repentance, or to keep us stuck at repentance: condemnation. Sometimes we feel so remorseful and ashamed at what we have done, we are unable to approach our Heavenly Father and repent. This is a trick and a lie from Satan, and it is purposeful to keep you away from your Heavenly Father, who is the only One who can forgive you and heal you. Here are three Scriptures for you to contemplate:
1 John 1:9 — “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (BSB)
Romans 8:1 — “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (BSB)
1 Corinthians 11:32 — “But when we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world.” (BSB)
Because of Jesus Christ, you have the ability to go — in fact, the privilege and honor of going — to the Father and confess your sins. This is not accomplished on your merit, but you are able to do this through Christ Jesus. Therefore, once you confess your sin, there is no condemnation when you stand before the Father. Yes, you are coming under God’s judgement, but this judgement is for your eternal good, and it is nothing to fear at that time. You should not fear coming under His judgement now, while you are able to do so of your own free will; but rather, you should fear waiting until it’s too late to submit to His righteous judgement on your own free will.
So do not allow Satan to prey on your emotions of shame and guilt, and cause you to feel condemned. This keeps you from God. Rather, go to Him in faith, knowing that because of Jesus Christ, if you confess and repent He will forgive you and cleanse you from your unrighteousness, clothing you once again in the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
● Submit to God.
This is as simple as saying, “Heavenly Father, I submit to Your will.” As with repenting, if you do not feel like submitting to God, ask Him to help you submit. Do not allow condemnation to grab ahold of you and prevent you from submitting. Just submit to Him, and continue to submit to Him every single day, even if, at first, it is only a submission by faith.
This submission is also similar to “renunciation,” a term that you may be familiar with.
Renunciation means “an act or instance of relinquishing, abandoning, repudiating, or sacrificing something, as a right, title, person, or ambition.”2 So while you relinquish and abandon your sin and your involvement with the things of the occult, at the same time, you are relinquishing your will to the will of your Heavenly Father. You are sacrificing and abandoning the rights you have taken to have control over your own life and your own ambitions, and giving those things to your Heavenly Father. Both of these operations surrounding the action of renunciation go hand-in-hand. You cannot renounce your ties to the occult without renouncing your own will to do what you please. You must surrender to the will of your Heavenly Father — submit to Him — otherwise renouncing your occult ties will be of no use.
● Ask God to heal you.
This is a process that may involve different things for different people, depending upon how deeply you were involved in witchcraft and how deeply the programming affected you. The things that you may need to ask of your Heavenly Father are:
1. Integrate the parts of you that you purposefully split off and split apart.
2. Cleanse you from the demonic influence and control, including the fallen.
3. Cut off the access the demonic and the fallen have to you by closing the spiritual space — “gateways,” if you will — that you have left wide open for the demonic to enter.
4. To free you from the programming and to set you free from the spirit of the antichrist. You may word this however you see fit. You may ask God to “unplug you” from the spirit of the antichrist, or to “cut the cords or ties” that are connecting you to the spirit of the antichrist through the programming. It doesn’t matter how you word it. There are no “magic words.” Just ask your Heavenly Father to set you free.
As we’ve written about in this entire book, there are many people involved in a type of “white magic” Christian witchcraft that will give you all sorts of “special prayers” to pray in order to cut off access from the demonic. We hope that by the time you have read this far in this book, you will not do that. Stop making things so complicated! Don’t worry so much about if you are “saying it right.” There are no “magic words,” or some words that are more powerful than other words. Power is found through Jesus Christ; not through finding the proper sequence of “power words.” The wisdom of God can be found in the simple things. Just continually humble yourself before Him and ask Him to set you free of any problems you have.
This will take time and it likely won’t always be easy, but allow God to work the healing in you by giving Him full control, and it will happen.
● Walk by faith and in obedience to His Word.
Walking by faith involves trusting that God is in the process of setting you free, no matter how you may or may not feel. It involves trusting Him enough to walk with Him, even if He leads you into uncomfortable or scary places. It involves being obedient to His Word, regardless of how you feel.
Faith always involves trust, because we can’t have faith in someone that we do not trust, so if you don’t trust God, don’t worry. A lot of people don’t trust God, even though not many like to admit this. If you can’t guess by now, the solution to your problem of not trusting your Heavenly Father is to ask Him to help you trust Him. And ironically enough, you may find the answer to not trusting Him is for you to walk in obedience to His Word, regardless of how you feel.
Obedience required submission to His authority, and if you are having problems submitting, ask Him to help you submit to His authority.
I hope you are understanding by this point just how simple it really is. You have a problem? Welcome to a special club called “Humanity.” Who has the answer? Our Heavenly Father. How do we get the answer? We ask our Heavenly Father. How do we know the answer truly is from Him, and not a trick of the enemy? We go to His written Word. What if we don’t see the answer or don’t feel as if our prayer has been answered? We keep praying, keep asking, and walk by faith, keeping our focus on Him and on building a relationship with Him. Sometimes the answer we ask for is not the answer God knows we need. Trust Him to provide what you need, and walk by faith that He will supply that need.
● Live humbly.
This involves daily walking in repentance and submission to your Heavenly Father. He can’t and won’t work with pride, so there will always be a need for you to continually confess, repent, and submit to Him. Why? Because you are human and you will make mistakes. You are susceptible, like every other human being, to being deceived. Recognize this and stay humbled before God.
The ironic thing about humility is that once you start to focus on “being humble,” you’ve lost it. So how do you stay humble? By focusing on the majesty and power of your Creator and submitting to Him. Don’t focus on trying to “be humble,” but focus on the One who causes us to be humbled.
● Focus on God.
This point has been talked about in nearly every other point in this list, but as you continue (or begin) to focus on your Heavenly Father and your relationship with Him, you may find yourself needing to do some of the following:
○ “Fast” from listening to other people talk about religious or Biblical matters. This is particularly important if you have been listening to people who are feeding you false doctrine. Stop allowing other people to tell you what God is saying and what He means, and find out for yourself.
○ If you are going to a church that is teaching false doctrine, you may want to think about taking a break from church-going for a while. This is especially important if you are attending a church that is teaching doctrine of demons. The more you immerse yourself in false doctrine, the more it affects you. Take yourself out of toxic, ungodly, Satanic environments.
○ Stop listening to internet preachers; stop tuning into television priests; stop talking to Facebook prophets; stop watching YouTube clergy. Start talking to and listening to your Heavenly Father.
○ Take a “fast” from reading the Bible.
○ Stop praying to and talking with Jesus.
Okay, we know those last two points probably got to you. No, we haven’t gone off the deep end. No, we are not spouting off heretical or blasphemous drivel. But yes, you read correctly: we have just made the suggestion to take a break from reading the Bible, and to stop talking to Jesus. Before your mind explodes and you throw this book out, take a deep breath and relax. If you need to take a moment to pick up your jaw from off the floor, we understand. Once you have collected yourself, please continue reading and allow us to explain, because these last two suggestions are very important to your continued healing and freedom.
■ Stop Reading and Start Studying
There are many topics we have discussed in this book that are common charismatic activities disguised as “Christian” activities, that are actually opening you up to demonic possession and control, programming you, and connecting you to the spirit of the antichrist. Confession, repentance, submission, healing, faith, obedience, and walking in humbleness are things you need to do, but you also need to break the programming.
So why have we suggested you take a fast from reading the Bible? To starve the Religious programming, both trauma-based programming and general programming. If you are reading the Bible through the religious spirit you have been programmed with, you are not going to be able to read the Bible with understanding. You are reading through the filter of the religious programming, and the Bible will simply be a religious book you read that gives reinforcement to the lies you have believed. The false doctrine you have lived under, and have wholeheartedly believed and defended as truth, will continue to be reinforced by your misunderstanding and misinterpretation of Scripture.
Think of the analogy of driving: you may know how to drive (the mechanics of driving, if you will), but if you have been blindfolded, you can’t see where you are going and you will crash. It’s the same with reading the Word of God: if your eyes of understanding have not been opened, you are blind to the truth found within the Word of God.
What to do instead? First, get back to basics, which is your relationship with God. Allow God to open the eyes of your understanding by first focusing on a relationship with Him. As you focus on Him, you will begin to want to know what He has to say about certain things. That will lead you to His Word. When you get to this point, don’t just start reading the Bible. Start studying His Word. There are dozens of free applications that can be downloaded from the internet, or found free to study online, that will help you in your studies, so not having the books in your personal library isn’t an excuse. Become a student of the Word of God by learning to rightly divide His Word. This means learning to properly interpret the words found in the Bible. Here are some very basic pointers:
1. Read in context. Thinks: exegesis and not eisegesis.3
2. Do word studies.
Find out what the words really mean. It takes practice. At first, you may spend all your free-time in a single day on a solitary passage, trying to find out the specific meanings behind the words in that passage, and learning about the context behind that passage. That’s okay. That’s a good thing! Keep studying, knowing that understanding builds upon understanding.
3. Ask God to help you understand what you are studying.
John 16:13 promises us that the Spirit of God will lead us to the truth. This is why it’s important to not go off on your own understanding of Scripture, but to keep your main focus on your Heavenly Father, and He, through His Spirit, will lead you into understanding the truth.
4. If you have been focusing on your relationship with God, it’s very likely that He has already placed a passage of Scripture on your heart where you can begin your studies. However, here are a couple of suggestions:
● If you are like most of us who have come out of religious environments, you’ve been marinating for years in the junk that is coming from false teachers and false prophets. Therefore, we suggest you initially stay away from most of what are considered to be “prophetic” passages in the Bible. Save that for when you have your foundation properly laid. Get back to the basics of the gospel of Jesus Christ. (Refer to “Milk versus Solid Food” in Section One of this book.)
● If you still don’t know where to start your word study, you may want to begin with the words of Jesus. By doing cross-referencing, this will lead you all over the Bible as you study what the words mean.
■ Focus on Your Heavenly Father
If you have not been affected by Jesus programming, this section may not apply to you. However, if you have been affected by this programming, you are not praying to the true Jesus, but to a demonic entity holding that Jesus programming. If you are dissociative, the “Jesus” might be a demonically-controlled alter who is taking the role of “Jesus.” So the quickest and most effective way to get rid of that programming is to simply cut off the access it has to you: stop talking to “Jesus.”
We are not, however, suggesting that you throw away your relationship with God. Follow the example of the true Jesus Christ and start talking to your Heavenly Father. It is because of Jesus Christ that you have that privilege! He is the One who has made it possible for you to have free and open communication between you and the Father! Jesus Christ is your High Priest, He is your Intercessor, He is your Interceder; you no longer need a human mediator to pass information from God to you, because Jesus Christ is the Final Mediator. So follow His example as outlined throughout the Gospels, and pray to the Heavenly Father, with the assurance that He hears your prayers and will answer you directly because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Studying the Word of God, rather than just reading it, will weaken and eventually break the Religious programming, both trauma-based and general. And when you shift your focus on your Heavenly Father, this will break the power the Jesus programming has over you. Once these two programs are dissolved, the strength of the other programs is drastically weakened. Over time, as you continue to submit to your Heavenly Father and focus on Him, they will completely fall away. The process may take longer, depending upon many factors, including how deeply you were involved in “Christian” witchcraft, and how dissociative you are or have been. But getting rid of these two programs in particular — the Religious programming and the Jesus programming — is of paramount importance to your continued healing.
■ Angels Are Not Your Personal Spirit Guide
The Holy Spirit is our Guide who leads us into all truth, not angels. Following the example of how to break the power of the Religious and Jesus programming, you can do the same for the Angel programming: stop feeding it!
We recognize that there are certain factors that can make this more difficult, including dissociative disorders. Furthermore, if there are fallen angels involved in this type of situation, it can be much more difficult to find freedom. However, continue to submit to your Heavenly Father and focus on Him, and He will set you free. This holds true for any programming to which you may have fallen victim.
