Satanic Ritual Abuse and the Good Samaritan: Part 1
In Luke 10 Jesus tells a parable about a man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and on the way fell among robbers who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him and left him half dead. Some religious leaders walked by and rather than stopping to help, passed him by on the other side of the road. Eventually a not-so-religious person, a Samaritan, came by, saw the man, and not only dressed his wounds, but took him to a nearby inn, paid for his room and board with the intent of returning later to pay for any other expenses.
In my most recent reading of this parable, it occurred to me for the first time that this parable could be viewed as a description of the plight of satanic ritual abuse victims today. In type, the wounded man represents those who have suffered from satanic ritual abuse. The robbers are the Satanists who abuse them. The religious leaders are the religious leaders of our churches today who choose not to help, and the Good Samaritan represents a layperson, a follower of Jesus, who has compassion for these people and helps them.
First let’s look at what the robbers, who are the Satanists in this application of the parable, did to their victim.
They Stripped Him
Being stripped naked in front of people is humiliating, dehumanizing and makes their victims feel shamed and inferior. It weakens them making them more vulnerable to the abuse. It also removes even the small amount of protection against sexual abuse and the elements that clothing might have provided.
They Wounded Him
Physical wounding – The victim is always physically harmed and often even tortured. Sexual abuse of little girls and women causes internal damage that sometimes causes them to be sterile. Most often these women need a hysterectomy at some point in their life. Doctors who see the internal damage usually say they have no idea how it could have happened—at least that is the report I mostly hear from abused women. Unfortunately this kind of abuse remains mostly unknown even though it is very common. I believe this is the result of (1) the power the Devil has through Satanists to blind people’s eyes to truth and (2) the fact that people just don’t want to know about it. Perhaps they are afraid or just don’t want their life to be interrupted, I’m not sure, but this is the response we have mostly encountered in our churches.
Emotional wounding – The emotional abuse that accompanies the physical abuse is extreme resulting in the splitting of the soul into many different parts as the person desperately attempts to survive the abuse. This splitting of the soul used to be called multiple personality disorder but now is called dissociative identity disorder. The things done to innocent people and the things they are forced against their will to do are so egregious and sickening it would be inappropriate for me to speak of it. I don’t speak of it to anyone because it would be too upsetting. I am able to hear these things because I have been called to this ministry and Jesus protects my mind from what I hear. I hate violence in any form. I don’t even watch it on TV or in movies. A major part of their healing is to remember what happened and verbalize it to another person so the event can be dealt with and healed by the power and presence of Jesus Christ.
Spiritual wounding – There are two classifications of victims at satanic rituals—those who have been chosen to die and those who have been chosen to live. The ones chosen to live (I call them living sacrifices) are doomed to a lifetime of extreme abuse and control at the hands of their abusers.
Due to the splitting of their mind into many dissociated parts, they don’t remember their abuse. Their abusers know about their dissociated parts and have assigned to many of them certain functions to perform for the cult. Each part used by the cult has an identification code known only to the abusers that can be used to signal that part to take control of the body and do their assigned task. The abusers have assigned demons to each part to control them and make sure they do their assigned tasks. The host person often does not even know she has parts or that she has ever been in a satanic ritual.
The person who is the living sacrifice is subjected to a lifetime of continual sexual abuse because they are often turned into hubs of demonic powers that can be accessed by those who have abused them. Powers are demons. Cultists access these powers for their own use by raping their victim.
I’m sure by now you can see that this gets complicated far beyond what can be described in a short article, but I want to explain enough for people to understand something about (a) how desperately wounded the living sacrifice person is and (b) how these people can never be healed without the direct intervention of Jesus Christ into their lives.
Left Half Dead
I have known many of these individuals over my twenty-eight years of ministering to these victims, and I have observed that many feel half dead or wish they were dead. They feel half dead because they have been deprived of the normal experiences of childhood and life in general due to the fact that a lifetime of memories are locked away in dissociated parts and therefore inaccessible. They have unconsciously made themselves emotionally numb for self-protection which robs them of the normal range of emotions people should be free to experience. Their bodies suffer sickness and pain because of abuse most of which they don’t remember.
They wish they were dead because of the constant torment in their life that is impossible to escape, and no one understands or if they do understand, they don’t know how to help. When people have been raised in extreme satanic abuse that usually begins in their mother’s womb or at birth, they have been programmed to greatly fear anything having to do with Jesus or the Bible. Often they are programmed such that it is impossible for them to even read the Bible. Demons attack them. Dissociated parts are beyond their control and come up and take over the body at very inconvenient times. They are accessed by Satanists and abused in the middle of the night and they often don’t know it and if they do know it, they don’t have any way to stop it. And no one understands and usually no one helps. Very often when people don’t understand another person’s torment, they choose to leave. Therefore abandonment is an enormous issue for these people because not only were they abandoned as children but they are also abandoned as adults.
As difficult as this all sounds, people who walk closely with Jesus and are willing to help, can bring these dear people out of the hell of satanic ritual abuse. We have far more power than the Satanists have. They have been able to do what they do because of our ignorance. The more Christians know about this, the more we can protect our children and the more we can help the suffering adults and children around us.
