Hello All! I attend a Baptist Church, which I enjoy, however I havent quite decided what denomination yet? Im really looking for Godly advice. I hope you folks can be of help. But put your seatblets on---this story is bizarre! In 2000, I was gloriously saved by Christ the King! I was healed from alcoholism and filled with Gods spirit for 3 months. But due to a variey of circumstances, failed to apply and obey the Bible in my life. I divorced, got hooked on pian meds and after years of fighting emotional problems, was diagnoised bi-polar and hospitalized for 3 years. I couldnt understand how my life could get worse after salvation, now I realize I was back-slidden. A man from california ran a healing ministry. I assumed this was a typical casting out of demons type thing. I was misled. He offered to fly me out there ( 3000 miles from home and my son ) to help me. at my wits end, I agreed. The first thing he did was have me repent, when I did I was filled again with the love of God! I was forgiven PTL! Then he cast out 3 demons. Also, they detoxed me off all drugs cold turky. ( this included pain meds and drugs for Bi-polar) I thought this was risky, but this man had so much faith in God, I agreed. I was up for 5 days, but after much prayer, I was supernaturally put to sleep. I think it was God, but i wonder now. These folks cliamed to be prophets. And the one guy heard from God 20 times a day. he appeared so IN TUNE with God. I was skeptical tho. Then the clincher---this ministry was not about demons, it was about multiple personalities which they claimed I had! I rebelled at this idea. Im 40, and have never been diagniosed as that. But God was so present I bought into it for a time. One lady, whose grandmother was a witch had POWERS! She could read my mind, yet claimed it was a gift of the spirit! She did indeed have alter personalities and these were the ones that could see things. I was scared because she knew everything about me! *shiver*---They prohecied some good and bad things about me. Heres just some: 1) That she could see my dead dad in the spiritual realm and he was in BIG trouble with God! He was neither in Heaven or Hell, but was considered chosen but never bent his knee to Christ. They said I had the same heart and If i didnt bend my knee too--in their group, I would suffer the same eteranl fate. 2) That God wanted to rise me up into a big music ministry---if i stayed in that group. 3) That my son was an IDOL. And that if i took any medication again, God would not let me see him. I would cry that I missed him and they would say it was like abraham and issac, the rich young ruler or Jacobs wrestling. They said I must forsake ALL for CHrist, including my son or my salvation wasnt secure. They even said they were suprised that God didnot KILL my son for my back-sliding, as in the story of David! 4 ) That all mentall illness is demons and alter personalities. 5 ) Doctors, police are involved in the illuminatii and to be avoided. Medicines are worldly, lack of faith and bring in 7 spirits worse than the first. 6) If I left the group, I would be devoured by satan and chastised by God! The list is endless.... but u get the gist. Anyhow, they claimed up and down that I had alter personalities. And their theory was that each alter has demons attached. They said God wanted me there to GET FREE of demons and to unify all the alters. Each alter needed to say the sinners prayer or they would go to hell. SOund ODD? U better believe it. I have never been diagnoised with that disorder! I was scared to death of these people and their prohecies. Especially, the lady that read my mind. It was weird! So anyhow, I left, but they planted so much in my head im messed up. Was this a cult? DId i do the right thing leaving? Is God so picky that a fragment of our personalities would go to hell? Im not sure these people were of ZGod now, yet, I FELT Gods mighty work there. What do u think. comment deeply appreciated!
