OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Dr Oz and Jonathon Grayson

I watched Oprah last night with my wife and enjoyed seeing the interventions done by Dr. Oz and Jonathon Grayson for people struggling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I think we all know someone who struggles with something like this or manifests these irrational behavioral tendencies.

The common thread I heard throughout every story and conversation with those struggling with OCD was fear. They were all battling fear of some sort and deep paranoia. They developed various phobias based around their erroneous beliefs, which Jonathon and Dr. Oz challenged by making them confront their fears.

Exposure and response as it is commonly referred to in psychology was the methodology used to treat these precious souls. Some of the things they made them do were a bit odd and gross to watch, like putting their hands on the floor and toilet seats (after which they were told to lick their hands).

Oz and Grayson took a 2 mile walk through the streets of Philadelphia to wear down the participants’ defenses and get them to open up. After the long walk they stopped in a back alley with some rubbish bins, one particularly which smelled like puke, old sour food, and feces. After some coaching and prodding, all participants put their hands in the slimy rubbish and licked them afterward, some putting their dirty hands through their hair.

All of this was to get the people to realize they weren’t going to die if they did what they most feared. I must say however seeing Dr. Oz putting his hands on a toilet seat and licking them afterward was terribly disgusting. My wife who watches Oprah every day was eating her dinner during the program. I couldn’t resist saying, “Oh baby, maybe you should get free from your OCD (control freak) by licking the toilet seat and drinking some toilet water.” (I know I’m bad. She finished her meal unabated.)

I was very impressed with the intervention, but probably would not have done the gross methods myself to achieve the same results. Dealing with the roots and origins of the phobia is crucial.

One African American mother confessed when a loved one died years ago she felt as if it was her fault. This erroneous belief opened the door to fear as she falsely interpreted the event. Thereafter she (and another white mother on the show with similar circumstances) began to shelter their children and freak out about every little thing as a perverse protective mechanism. What the women failed to realize was in actuality they weren’t protecting their kids as much as they were harming them by imparting a spirit of fear and thereby removing them from life itself.

At the beginning all participants were initially reminded of the pain, loss of loved ones, alienation of friends, career loss, and financial hardships caused by their phobias. This helped each commit to the coaching and unique methods used to provide them their breakthrough.

After the intervention the people all looked way better, more free, present, and regained the glow in their countenance. One gentleman who always kept one hand in his pocket to stay germ free, was outdoors with both hands out, talking about playing in the dirt and having fun. He regained himself and thereby his life.

Jonathon Grayson occasionally throughout the segment called and referred to the fear everyone was struggling with as a “monster” saying: “When you run from this monster it follows you.” He later also called it a “devil” and encouraged one woman as she sought to pray to God for power to overcome it.

I was blessed to hear the one clean freak mom (white with short curly hair – sorry I don’t remember her name) testify to her breakthrough of taking her children out for ice-cream after the intervention. Her daughter wore a white shirt and got ice-cream all over it, but mom didn’t obsess or freak out. Upon leaving the restaurant she left without worrying about tidying up, pushing in the chairs, or agonizing over anything. A personal breakthrough for her!

Dr. Oz at the conclusion of the show summed up some key principles to freedom. “Surrender, get free from those attachments.”

As we are fully present and awake to our own past dysfunction, we can boldly deal with it and get the breakthroughs we deserve to live freely and be whole.

Truly what we resist does persist. Face your fears and live free!

Stolen Innocence by Erin Merryn – incest survivor & Elissa Wall – FLDS church polygamy & child abuse

Eleven-year-old Erin Myrren’s life was marred the night she was sexually abused by her cousin, someone she loved and trusted.

As the abuse continued, and as she was forced to see her abuser over and over again in social situations, she struggled with self-doubt, panic attacks, nightmares and the weight of whether or not to tell her terrible secret. It wasn’t until a traumatic series of events showed her the cost of silence that she chose to speak out-in the process destroying both her family and the last of her innocence.

“Through her personal diary, written during the years of her abuse, Erin Myrren shares her journey through pain and confusion to inner strength and, ultimately, forgiveness. Raw, powerful and unflinchingly honest, Stolen Innocence is the inspiring story of one girl’s struggle to become a woman, and a bright light on the pain and devastation of abuse.”

“Stolen Innocence is written with conviction and clarity. Erin Myrren doesn’t hold back, and I respect her honesty and openness…By the end of the book, I thought I was reading passages from a much older adult than a high school senior. Erin has grown into a strong, wise, intelligent, perceptive, spiritual, caring adult.”

Forced to marry at 14, Oprah’s Lisa Ling provided a special report on the grotesque polygamist practices within the FLDS “church” (an offshoot from the formerly and sometimes secretly still polygamist Mormon “church” of latter day “saints”).

In the FLDS Church from the moment she was born, all Elissa Wall knew was adhering to her pedophile “prophet’s” commands. From her “teachings”, which were portrayed as Biblical and godly, all Elissa knew was that the “prophet’s” job was to dictate what was best for the girls, speaking as he was God’s earthly orator.

Made to marry her cousin at the age of 14, Elissa was brainwashed to believe her marriage was the will of God and therefore nothing could be done to stop it. Nevertheless she still asked for permission not to marry, tried to resist, and pushed back when her new “husband” tried to make a move for his first kiss.

Knowing she was different from other girls in her community, Elissa wanted an education, maybe even to become a nurse or teacher someday. During her year in public school, Elissa had come to realize things were possible that she’d never dreamed before. Elissa knew that she wanted to be a mother of good priesthood children, but not at 14-years-of-age!

Yet Uncle Fred had other plans for Elissa’s precious life, telling her “the prophet” wanted her to marry. Although it felt horrible inside and didn’t seem right, Elissa wanted to please God.

Cult leader and self-proclaimed “prophet” Warren Jeffs used religion to prey on and sexually abuse women and children. Don’t be duped by foul religion, read God vs. Religion by Paul F Davis and find freedom! Escape the enslavement and clutches of dead religion. Awaken to foul religion, pseudo-spiritual manipulation, and the need for proper godly confrontation. Learn truths to experience personal liberation.

For the broken hearted, Davis has written Breakthrough For A Broken Heart empowering us to overcome our disappointments and blossom into our dreams.

Davis commends Erin and Elissa for turning their mess into a message to help others like them across the globe similarly suffering and ensnared by sexual perverts. God have mercy and help the young girls entrapped get free from these foul excuses for men.

Davis in his compassion has even written a book for sex addicts to help them find freedom. Paul encourages men to read his book Stop Lusting & Start Living – A Sexual Recovery Plan.

Davis says, “God above is full of love and can set both the oppressed and the oppressor free simultaneously. Whosoever will humble their heart and cry out to Christ Jesus for salvation can be saved from their sin and self.”

Indonesia – The Land Of Miracles

Indonesia is a country that has captivated my heart and stirred me to new depths of inspiration.

Every trip I’ve taken through Indonesia, there has been something miraculous and supernatural that has occurred. Though such is typical for my life everywhere I go, Indonesia had something additional and extra special. Indonesia has an intangible quality that intoxicates your heart, propels your passion, and empowers you to move in the miraculous.

My ministry has taken me from the islands of Sumatra all the way to Irian Jaya, bordering Papau New Guinea. I can honestly say the islands and islanders are fantastic. The few isolated incidents of terrorism do happen, but I can live with it for the rewards. Not only do people honor me and treat me like a movie star, but most importantly the supernatural power of God to touch and transform lives is flows incredibly.

I’ve seen healings and deliverances from demons. Others broken hearted have been comforted and healed of emotional wounds. Families have been restored and people reconciled. I guess I’ve discovered my country and calling.

Though I’ve been to over 50 countries worldwide, whenever I am asked “What’s your favorite country and place to travel?” I always reply “Indonesia.” Just the mention of the name of the country brings tears to my eyes.

The depth of my spiritual experiences in Indonesia, the sincerity of the people, the thrill of the surf, and the warm sunshine all swallow me up stealing my heart.

I now must figure out a way how to translate and publish all of my books into Bahasa, after which I want to embark on a motivational speaking and life purpose coaching practice there. I’ve got to find some way to survive there financially. Thankfully the people are generous and do pay for services rendered. Every church I’ve ever ministered in insisted on giving me a love offering.

I guess if I follow my heart and vision, the provision will supernaturally show up somehow. This has been my life story thus far. The only time the money is not there is when I shrink back in fear and don’t go ahead full force.

Yeah! Indonesia is the place for me! I would love to become a citizen and buy a house there near the beach.

Paul F Davis produced two documentaries on Indonesia, which he currently needs volunteer videographers to help complete the project.  Basically, the raw footage needs to be edited.

Invite Paul to speak in your city and tell about Indonesia. Paul’s unforgettable and inspiring talks will revolutionize your world.

Demon Possession – How To Cast Out Devils

Jesus gave us power over all of the power of the enemy to break demon power and set the captives free (Luke 10:17-21).

I have extensive experience dealing with demon possession, mind renewal, inward transformation, and helping confused individuals become integrated and congruent. The anointing of the Holy Spirit enables me to move in the supernatural power of God to break demonic influences destroying human beings. The truths I am about to teach you, I have personally proven and applied to impact people on every continent.

It is first needful to understand the weapons of our spiritual warfare by which demon power is stopped in its maneuvering. The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God (2Corinthians 10:4). We must remember that our sufficiency is of God and not of ourselves (2Corinthians 3:5). Here are some weapons of our warfare by which we stop the devil from devouring us.

1.The Name of Jesus – (Luke 10:17-19)
2.The blood of Jesus – (Exodus 12:13; Hebrews 9:14; 11:4)
3.The Holy Spirit and His gifts — (Matthew 12:28; 1Corinth.12:7-11)
4.The Word of God – (Matthew 4:10; 8:16; Ephesians 6:17)
5.Praise and worship – (Psalm 8:2; 22:3; 1Samuel 16:23)
6.Prayer — (Daniel 10:10-13; Ephesians 6:18)
7.Spanking and discipline – (Proverbs 22:15; 23:13-14)
If you or anyone you know needs deliverance from demonic spirits, but cannot get to a man or woman of God to pray for and lay hands on them; here are some steps for self-deliverance and how to stay free from demonic influences.

Self-deliverance

8.Get unforgiveness out of your heart – (Matthew 6:15; 18:33-35)

9.Pray for your enemies and yourself – (Job 42:10; Isaiah 52:1-3)

10.Repent of sin that opened the door to demonic influences (Eph.4:27; 1Jn.1:9)
11.Invite Jesus into your life to be your Lord and Savior acknowledging His death, burial and
resurrection (Rom.10:8-13; 8:9; Eph.1:12-13)
12.Associate with godly people who fervently love Jesus (Heb.10:25; Prov.13:20)

Jesus told his disciples to cast out devils (Mark 3:13-15; 16:15-20), but we have created denominations. Man-made tradition and doctrines nullify the Word of God and keep people spiritually powerless (Matthew 15:3,9; 22:29; Mark 7:13).

Oprah Discerns A Demon In Eckhart Tolle’s Pain Body – A New Earth Free From Demonic Influences

While Oprah and Eckhart Tolle reviewed chapter 5 of the book A New Earth, the two discussed “the pain body” as Eckhart calls it.

Tolle: “But don’t underestimate the pain-body’s ability to draw out some, to make you unconscious again, to push some kind of button, and you will find yourself reacting again. Because pain-bodies are very cunning, very clever. And they know exactly what will make you unconscious and what will make you react.”

Oprah: “You speak of it like it’s a creature that’s like an alien force inside of us. Yeah”

Tolle: “Yes, that’s how I see it.”

Here both Eckhart and Oprah identify the demonic activity that seeks to tempt and torment us all, which ultimately causes torment and brings havoc into our lives. Jesus said the devil, whom He calls a thief, comes to “kill, steal, and destroy” (John 10:10). The first thing Satan’s demons seek to steal from humanity is their time because life consists of time. Demons seek to mentally bombard us with thoughts, temptations, and accusations so they can bog us down within the brain. To overwhelm our thoughts with excessive external stimuli thwarts the spiritual life within and causes our souls to be restless. Once our souls are inwardly troubled and restless, demons can more easily get us to a place of unconsciousness where we easily react.

A woman from Canaan came to Jesus crying that her daughter was grievously vexed by a demon spirit (Matthew 15:22).

A demon spirit vexed one man’s son causing him to be lunatic and often times making him to fall into the fire and water (Matthew 17:15).

Jesus healed many people who suffered with various diseases caused by unclean spirits who vexed them (Luke 6:18).

Peter in like fashion as Jesus also dealt with demon spirits troubling people causing illness and healed them (Acts 5:16).

Even the great apostle Paul who wrote two-thirds of the New Testament, acknowledged he was buffeted by a troubling demon spirit. Seemingly, the Lord allowed the spirit to occasionally tempt Paul to keep him dependent on the Lord’s power. The apostle Paul says in his own words: “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure” (2 Corinthians 12:7).

So even the great apostle Paul was not above temptation and the occasional demonic visitation that he in the Lord’s power had to overcome. Concerning the demon spirit, Paul said: “For this thing I besought the Lord three times, that it might depart from me. And Jesus said unto me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Corinthians 12:8-9).

And so too must we trust in the Lord and the Holy Spirit’s power to drive out demon spirits that would come trying to trouble us. The battleground is in the mind. Jesus was crucified at Golgotha, which is the place of the skull (Matthew 27:33). Given that there are no meaningless details in the Bible, we must see the connection between life and death. The crucifixion occurred at Golgotha the place of the skull, because after the mind and thought is adequately dealt with, we can be free to experience the power of the resurrection and live in the Spirit.

Invite Paul to your city to set people free from demons!
