Satanic Ritual Abuse and the Good Samaritan: Part 2
As I explained in Part 1 of “Satanic Ritual Abuse and the Good Samaritan,” I saw, in type, the man who had been accosted by the robbers as representing a person who has suffered from satanic ritual abuse. Here in Part 2, I want to focus on the response of the others in the parable to what happened to the man. This is important to understand because it is exactly what is happening to SRA persons today. They still suffer incredibly from what has been done to them but they can’t find the help they need anywhere.
The Priest and the Levite
The priest and the Levite who pass him by without doing anything to help are sadly representative of church leadership today. It is sad but true that most pastors and church leaders are woefully ignorant of satanic ritual abuse and if afforded the opportunity to learn about it are not interested. I have personally observed this and also through my website I hear from people all over the world who are desperate for Christian help for healing but cannot find it. In fact, they usually get so wounded in churches they decide not to return. The laissez-faire attitude of church leadership is usually reflected in the congregation’s response to victims of SRA, who often are treated as “leprous.”
I would not expect pastors and elders of a church to necessarily do this kind of ministry, but they are desperately needed to be a spiritual covering for those in their churches who are called and willing to do this rewarding work. Satanic ritual abuse ministry definitely takes you into a new realm of spirituality that few Christians know about or experience. It would be foolish to discount the fact that demons and Satanism are what this is all about and one cannot successfully minister without taking this into account. This necessitates learning about the nature and operation of demonic entities and taking authority over them.
The typical response of church leaders to a person experiencing the devastating results of SRA is to tell them to go to a psychiatrist or professional counselor. However, the field of psychiatry is woefully unable to deal with SRA because it is a spiritual problem that does not respond to humanistic counseling techniques. What was done in the name of Satan can only be undone in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no other way.
Spiritual Warfare under Authority
Spiritual warfare must be an important component of this ministry. This requires (1) knowledge of the spiritual realm about how to disarm demons and cast them out, (2) the power of God to do so, and (3) a godly spiritual covering. Being under the authority of a godly pastor or a strong Christian leader is essential when dealing with demons. And, of course, the person doing the ministry needs to have a close relationship with Jesus so his love and power can flow unimpeded through them to the wounded person.
Remember the account of the centurion who requested that Jesus come and heal his servant? He said, “Lord, I am not worthy that you should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” (Matt 8:8, 9 NKJV)
Jesus marveled at the centurion’s faith. The centurion understood that Jesus lived under his Father’s authority and that was one reason for his great power. We also must be under authority to have the power and protection we need to cast out the demons of satanic ritual abuse which are often principalities, powers, world rulers and spirits of wickedness in high places.
I am blessed to have my husband, who is also my pastor, for my covering—a godly, righteous man under whom I can rest and experience the power needed to bring out any demon I encounter. However, not everyone who does this ministry has such a covering and because of this, the enemy can gain a foothold into these ministries.
Who Can Minister?
I believe a lot of the people called to this ministry are or will be women. This is good because far more women are asking for help for their satanic ritual abuse issues than men. Of course men will also be called to this ministry, also husband and wife teams will minister, but I prefer that men minister to men and women minister to women because many of their memories are sexual in nature and demon powers abound. Also the healing most often requires a deep bonding with the minister which is just not healthy between a man and woman who are not married. When I minister to men, my husband is with me and I encourage him to minister also.
In my experience and in the testimonies I hear from other people around the world, the best healing experience comes when there is an ongoing relationship between the abused person and their minister. When I say minister, I don’t mean a seminary graduate with credentials after their name. I mean “people in the pews,” laypersons, (good Samaritans) who have compassion for others and a close relationship with Jesus. Our churches should be filled with persons like this; however, at this present time I don’t believe this is the case because so much of the world has invaded our churches.
The Purging of the Churches
I do foresee a great shaking coming to the churches of this land. God wants a church that is filled with his people who have chosen to forsake the lure of the world and live in close communion with him and with fellow, like-minded worshipers. Under godly leadership, with fully committed disciples, an environment for healing of the satanically abused can be achieved. I believe this is God’s plan and we will see it come to pass, but first there must be a purging and cleansing of what we presently call “the church.”
As a consequence of so much sin and worldliness in our churches, many people have left the established or institutional churches and now meet in homes choosing to call themselves “the ecclesia” (called out ones) rather than the church. The word “church” now brings into the minds of the public a place where people get all dressed up in their finest clothes, put on a big, fake smile and go to a building called a church where they put on their best behavior and then as soon as they walk out the door act like any other sinner. In other words, for the most part the world considers the church to be a place filled with hypocrites.
Babylon and the Church
Many people in these difficult times have turned their eyes towards the book of Revelation in their attempts to understand in a biblical context what is occurring worldwide. There in chapters 17, 18 and 19 they read about Babylon. In my estimation, Babylon is a type of the false and corrupt religious systems of the world.
I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!
…And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.” (Rev 18:1, 2, 4)
Please don’t misunderstand me. I’m not suggesting that anyone leave their current church if that is where the Lord has you, but I am saying that multitudes have left their institutional churches and the people I’ve ministered to for SRA in other nations had all left their churches before meeting me. They did so because of the ignorance of people towards their situation and even downright abuse at the hands of some church leaders.
It is sad but true that many pastors are not teaching the whole gospel let alone anything about satanic abuse. To me the most neglected part of the gospel in most churches today is the call of Jesus to “take up your cross and come follow me.” This means we are called to give up our own worldly and selfish goals and lay down our life for our neighbor. “Thou shalt love the Lord with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy strength and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.”
This is definitely required in order to minister for satanic ritual abuse but as you do so, you find Jesus in ways you never could have imagined. In other words, when you lay down your own life to help such desperately wounded people, you wind up finding your life—your life in Jesus which is glorious beyond anything the world has to offer.
Children Are Endangered
One of the greatest tragedies of the church’s refusal to deal with satanic ritual abuse is that the children are not protected from it. If no one knows about this abuse, how it gets to the children even in good families and how common it is, no one can properly protect their children. You can’t protect them from something you don’t know exists.
To protect your children, you need to go beyond just knowing it exists to understanding how prevalent it is and who it may involve. People tend to believe that all their friends at church are who they think they are because they only know to look on the surface of people’s lives. They commonly excuse strange behaviors as just being quirks in a person’s personality with no thought that there could possibly be something nefarious lurking beneath the surface. We are not to go around judging everyone, but we need to prayerfully bring all matters to the Lord and pray for his discernment especially when it comes to the matter of whom we trust with our children.
I have found that when we are in relationship with Jesus and when we pray about everything, he will warn us in many ways. Years ago I asked Jesus to show me things in dreams, and he answered that prayer. I began recording my dreams in 1980 and have done so ever since. One night a few years ago, I was not able to sleep and decided to look through some of my old dream journals. I came upon an entry in which I had dreamed that two people we knew were not who we thought they were. They looked like our friends but they were not who we thought they were. With hindsight I could see that God had warned me about these people all those years ago. Many years later we learned these people were involved in Satanism. I was not able to heed the warning in the dream because I had absolutely no knowledge about how prevalent Satanism is or about how much it has infiltrated all our churches.
People tend to believe that if someone they know personally were involved in Satanism, they would recognize it. But the fact is, without discerning of spirits it is impossible to tell.
After many years in satanic ritual abuse ministry I began to understand that many of the strange behaviors I had observed and excused in other people, were sometimes actually telltale signs of some aspect of Satanism. I also learned that God was training me in the gift of discerning of spirits. Previously I had thought it was something that was given to a person all at once. However, for me it has been a gradual learning as God has brought me into many different situations with people and then taught me through experience. I still have much to learn.
However, people who have been satanically ritually abused are often very discerning and also prophetic. They can pick out people involved in Satanism sometimes almost instantly because they have an openness to the spirit realm the rest of us may not have. I have been told and also have observed how an SRA person with discernment has tried to warn their church leadership about an important matter but were ignored and pushed to the side.
The Tragedy of Ignorance
Thousands of people go missing in the United States each year and many are never heard from again. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States. Sounds a little bit too much? Think of it this way to realize the whole situation – that’s roughly 2,000 per day! https://beautifulpeoplemagazine.com/2020/05/10/800000-kids-go-missing-us-year-never-found-whered-think-go/
Fact Checkers say that the above statement is a lie. They base their “fact” on information from the FBI. If you have been following alternative news sites for any length of time, you know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the FBI is lying about many things and there is plenty of proof to back it up. I personally took a report I wrote on child trafficking and child porn containing detailed information to the FBI. I had learned about this from a satanically abused person I ministered to who had firsthand knowledge of this with many details that would have made finding these people and stopping their business easy. My report was ignored.
Would all these children go missing if people knew what to look for? We are too trusting. The name Children’s Protective Services makes us think all these employees protect children. The fact is that some do but some don’t. It is reported that the CPS is one of the main avenues of getting children away from their parents and all too often, the parents never see them again.
There is little justice in the courts. They are either ignorant or involved in it themselves.
Cults train up their children to be in certain professions where they can use them for their own nefarious purposes. Some of the more common careers include physicians, dentists, chiropractors, lawyers, judges, policemen, teachers, politicians, entertainment industry and many more. These are like gods to many people and they trust them implicitly.
I don’t want to plant fear and distrust in people’s hearts. What I want to do is encourage and educate people to the need for a close relationship with Jesus Christ. When we have a close walk with God, we are enabling him to speak into our lives and warn us so we can protect our children and ourselves. This close walk with Jesus is developed through prayer. I’m not talking about a quick prayer uttered just before leaving the house for work, although that is good and there is nothing wrong with it, but if that is all the time we are giving to God, our relationship with him may be rather shallow.
In the 1980s there was a video series that many churches, including ours, presented to our congregations. The title was “Could You Not Tarry for One Hour?” That had a tremendous impact on my life and I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to be encouraged in this. That kind of time given to God on a daily basis will bring power and blessing beyond what anyone could fathom.
