What issues were you dealing with?
Overwhelming feelings of dejection that were developing into negative emotions and reactions that I felt I was not going to be able to handle. In the past, I had experienced such and would manage to lift off by way of prayer, worship, bible declarations or even speaking in tongues! This time around, nothing seemed to work as effectively or promptly. I felt like I was losing the battle.
How where they affecting you?
I was getting desperate. I knew something was upto to submerge me and I was feeling helpless. I was loosing confidence in my self as a Christian individual, wife and mother. I was also experiencing confusion which was affecting my decision making. Destructive and negative thoughts were taking control including regrets for things I had seen as blessings or in the will of God previously. I felt condemned at an increasing level. I was feeling confused and I was getting overwhelmed with my housework to the extent that I would rather sleep than clean or tidy and just preserve my energy for going to work!
What changes have you seen?
I have a clear mind. My thought life has been restored according to God’s will and purpose for my life. I no longer see myself as the world would want me to or based on my mistakes or failures, but by what the Word of God and who Christ says I am. The plan of God for my life has been restored, by use of his word.
I am more confident, and able to re-engage in the word of God a fresh and a new. I am more inclined to His word, to rely on Christ and His word more rather than outward manifestations. My thoughts are easily geared to scripture while before it was becoming difficult to do this.
My relationships: where arguments would have been the solution, I find these minimising, in fact they are not part of my dealings with those close to me any more. I am becoming more understanding of the other person and actually letting God take control, asking him to lead me on how to deal with issues. I am also more confident in ministering (to friends and others) without doubts and fears, I am relating with folks from a position of authority in Christ and not in any other. I rely on his guidance, I do not have to be overly prepared with all the answers but to Trust in him with all my heart and to not lean on my own understanding, submitting all my ways to him for he promises to establish my plans while, most importantly, fearing the Lord and shunning evil (Proverbs 3:6-7; 16:3).
I have the joy of the Lord, I feel confident about my life, my family, my career, ministry everything!
First and foremost let me thank my Lord for leading me through the internet to A&B Counseling. I started by listening to the podcasts which gave me an introduction of the deliverance ministry according to scripture, and how relevant it is for the church today but seldom taught.
The teaching: The Minister of Deliverance (Shirley George) begun with me from a point of ‘where I am at’ – having established my relationship with Christ (am a born again Christian), we started by looking at Romans 8. This helped to remind me of my position despite of what I was or had been experiencing. I learnt about entry points and the presentation (diagrams, illustrations) was so powerful – I had never been presented anything like it before. This really helped to see what was actually taking place in my mind, soul, spirit and body. At the end of each teaching session I had homework.
Deliverance Ministry Process: having learnt about entry points, the next thing to learn for the process to be effective was the closing of open doors especially word curses and spoken words by ourselves or others. The homework that followed leading on to the deliverance itself was using the entry points list to close the open doors. This was very fulfilling and helped bring a lot of things to the surface concerning myself, relatives, family and past and present relationships and experiences.
The Deliverance Session: This was a 2 hour session where Shirley, with the authority of Christ not only skilfully and professionally begun to evict the spirits of hell but also discern fully, reassuring me every step of the way, like a skilled surgeon carving out the cancer or tumour causing disease while ensuring what is healthy remains intact. It felt completely safe and the effect or feelings of release were swift and instantaneous.
In addition: I found fasting prior to the day of deliverance beneficial. Fasting can be food, pleasures, activities and even avoiding or keeping off certain associations *(please note this is not a requirement of A&B counselling but my own experience*). I also found it very helpful to do my homework as required with all diligence as well as listening to the podcasts as this provided a better understanding of the process and the deliverance ministry based on the words and works of Christ. Finally, you have to want it with every fibre in you! Jesus said, if you seek me you will find me, if you call I will hear, if you knock the door will be open to you and if you ask, you will receive. Have you tried everything else and failed? Are you looking for answers to end the un ending cycles of doom and despair in your life and generation? Then look no further, Jesus says He is the Way, Truth and Life – He is the Answer – you have searched, knocked, called and he has brought you to this site.
You will not only find teachings that will ‘blow your mind’, as they say, concerning the spiritual, and the physical realms, and how these affect us, but also encounter a team of loving, compassionate believers that you will instantly feel safe and ready to be nurtured back to your original intended purpose, according to the plan of the one who created you, knows all about you, and searches all things. (Genesis 1, Job 21:22, Isaiah 40:13-14, Psalms 44:20-21, Psalms 139:1-2).
