Escape from an apostate church through knowledge of Scriptures.
A Fight with a Demon
The following is a testimony from a former NAC member who testifies that she was harassed by demons as a child in the NAC. Later, as an adult who had been saved out of the NAC, a "soul from the departed" came to her again, but this time, the Holy Spirit -- the Spirit of Truth -- gave her eyes to see that this soul from the departed was actually an ugly demon! Her blinders had come off, and she saw this demon for what it was -- a deceiver!
In one email she wrote, "We
had our [baby several years ago] after a very interesting fight I had with a demon
that must have been leaving me - one of those souls from the departed that
thought it needed to stay in my life I guess."
I then asked
her to elaborate on the incident.
She replied, "The
whole website you've provided has been swirling around in my head and heart for
the past few days and curiously enough made me think about my childhood and events
that have happened to me and around me."
shared how she was accosted and frightened by demons as a child.
"As a young
girl I wouldn't be able to go to sleep at night because I could envision many
ghost-like forms around me. Not just like imagine them, but really see people
all over my bedroom. I would cry and complain about it and as long as someone
else was with me I was ok - but would fear to awake again to these faces that
wouldn't leave. Almost like there was no end to all of them. Not the same ones
nightly - but they would change up. Then as I became older I had told my dad
after a service about a girl who asked me questions during a service for the
departed and made me actually sick to my stomach. That was a very strange
occurrence because I had never spoke to one of these faces before."
"If these souls
were supposed to be benevolent, why would they make me so upset? How could I
help souls as a child - why would I have to see them? Do they pick on the weak?"
She shared that
her father regarded his daughter's demonic interactions as gift to be excited
"For me, as a
child, I felt scared into being a believer in the NAC because of this terrible
gift. Of course, my dad was excited about it and told the Dist. Elder. I was
totally freaked. It was almost like seeing dead people was a good thing! Like a gift of the spirit - which I thought
was awful, scary and unsettling at best."
relayed a very disturbing detail.
"When I had
finally left the [NAC] church all of that stopped until that one night
when [my husband] and I were fast asleep - it was almost like a last stitch
effort for those souls to get my attention and do as they wanted. I was
awakened by a dark mass, the form floated in through my bedroom window, grabbed
me (not kidding - with claw-like fingers) by the shoulder - it never spoke but
did whisper in my ear as it entered - so close to my ear that I could hear it breathe,
and I screamed "In Jesus name you must leave" over and over again
until I felt him let go, a breeze left the room and out the window it went!"
Because this sister had been truly born again, had removed herself from the NAC's deceptions, had started to study the Scriptures on her own and had placed her trust in the Yah, her eyes were able to see that this "soul from eternity" was actually a horrible demon. Her blinders had come off!
She further wrote, "I spoke to my
pastor at church the next day and he also prayed with me, but said he couldn't
Without the whole truth from the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, even most Christian pastors today have little clue regarding the truth of spiritual warfare. Because, as it is written in Psalms 119:142, "Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth," most Christian pastors do not have the Spirit of Truth -- the true Holy Spirit. Therefore, they cannot be trusted to teach the truth unless they have repented and decided to diligently obey the teachings (i.e. the Torah) of Yah, His commandments.
Thankfully, our sister reports, "Never again -
in these 8 years have I been pestered by any spirits - I feel free and able to
Our sister next offered encouragement for those who would consider leaving the NAC. She wrote, "I think the scary part about leaving the NAC when you are in it your whole
life is that you don't know anyone else. It breaks my heart to know how many
people were part of my life that I can't afford to be friends with any more.
I've tried but they all try to pull us back - like a conditional part of being
their friend. So, we press forward meeting new people - being more normal than
we ever thought possible. Seeing how God's hand has directed us from the first
part of our marriage till now."
relayed how transformational the study of Scriptures has been in her life. "Personally,
with my family, I went from NAC to learning about God's grace - studying his
word - worked under fantastic men and women of God - where my whole life
swirled around the eating, breathing, tasting, waiting for more of God's word -
and then to ups in downs in my walk."
Thankfully, our sister next relays that her life after leaving the NAC is filled with happiness and peace. "Right now I work, am a mother, wife, daughter,
sister, ... and so happy! I love my new life! Not really attending a church - not
reading my Bible as much as when I left - but have every different form - my favorite
being the New Living Translation - but I can say that I have good children,
they have been taught the bible the whole time growing up, not afraid of going
to sleep at night, we really enjoy our family life, we hold hands in prayer,
are able to speak how we feel, we love each other - and thank GOD for the
freedom we have in JESUS CHRIST our SAVIOR!!"
We bless Yah that this sister and her family have been set
free of the demonic teachings of the New Apostolic Church. She and her family are now studying the
Scriptures and learning the truth for themselves. HalleluYah!
Many have been brought out of the darkness of the New Apostolic Church by simply dusting off and picking up their Bibles and diligently studying them. We pray that many more in the NAC will do the same!
