Do you really want to be healed? This is a question that Jesus posed to a man in the bible. This man had been stricken with paralysis for over 30 years (bondage). He had been laying by a pool of water hoping that when the healing angel came by, he would fall in and be made whole again. But the man wasn’t close to the water’s edge to even be a consideration. The man remained there for years in his infirmity. So Jesus asked, “Do you really want to be healed?”
That is the same question I want to ask some survivors today because many survivors want to hold on to their parts that are ravaging their soul. Some of these parts are controlled by demons that were embedded during rituals. This isn’t the survivor’s fault at all, however, these demons offer survivors power, a sense of control, or an identity. These parts can also make survivors do things they wouldn’t normally do in a dissociative state such as give their own children up to cult members, participate in a ritual as an adult, or other exploitations. Hear me clearly, this is NOT a survivor’s fault.
Here are a few examples of what survivors have told me:
- “My parts are my friends and I don’t want to lose them.”
- “I don’t want to integrate, I just want my parts to be at peace with one another.”
- “I want to be studied and have a documentary done so that people know who I am and what’s been done to me.”
Friends, these are barriers to healing. Integration is the ultimate goal in order to be completely free and healed. Years of counseling can help but nothing will heal faster and more thoroughly than placing your trust in the real Jesus Christ and allowing him to make you whole as you were created to be. The bible says that Jesus came so that you may have life and live it in abundance until it’s overflowing. What satan meant for evil, Jesus can turn it into good. Survivors were subjected to immense evil by demonic forces, so to fight that, you have to apply an opposite force to overcome the evil, and this can be done with the help of the real Jesus.
Imagine not dealing with the chronic depression, anxiety, paranoia, fractured thoughts, and disfunction. This is what Jesus offers to those who place their faith in him and his word. Jesus loves you so much that this gift is free. But you do have to be honest with your advocate and be willing to change. Jesus’ name is powerful and all demons must submit to him. Healing can start with a simple prayer.
If you want to take this step, please let us know. Until then I want to say again, “Do you really want to be healed?”
