Your spiritual life is like a journey. You are on the broad road, and SEW Mentoring will lead you to the narrow way. As you journey through the valleys to find your mountaintops, our trained ministers are with you as a “travel guide” so to speak. You have become accustomed to travelling alone, and perhaps with out even a map. You have been walking for a long time and your bondage may have brought you to a crossroad.
The first stage of basic Christian mentoring is geared toward helping you make your own decisions about how much truth you are willing to receive to obtain freedom. The more you resist truth, the longer you will journey on the broad way, that leads to destruction.
THEOBJECTIVES OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING
We have found that most Christians who need deliverance mentoring are blinded by spiritual ignorance. Our goal at SEW is to help you obtain clear spiritual vision as we coach and train you to distinguish between good and evil.
The goal of basic Christian mentoring is to help you to be engaged, encouraged and enlightened in your mind. As such, our objective at is to strengthen your spirit so that you will be able to recognize God’s will and choose it above your own.
However, the goal of deliverance mentoring is to arm you to recognize and effectively deal with the activity of the enemy in your life. Deliverance mentoring is broken down into 4 components:
A SEARCH FOR COSMIC EVIL DOORWAYS: These are areas in a person’s life which are giving or have given cosmic entities the right to enter or remain in the person. Asking Jesus to “come into your heart, a counterfeit birth, a background in the occult, unconfessed sins, ungodly soul ties, unforgiveness, holding cursed possessions (occult rings, etc.) and so forth can give demons a right to inhabit and torment a person. These legal grounds can be removed by facing the truth, repentance, renunciation, extending forgiveness, etc.
THE EXAMINATION OF STRONGHOLDS: These are basically incorrect thinking patterns in your mind. For example, if you think God is angry with you because you have committed the unpardonable sin, then you will feel like He is. This stronghold may open you to panic attacks, paranoia or obsessive compulsive behavior. Strongholds are torn down in each mentoring session as a trained minister and mentee work together to reprogram your mind to think differently. You might say that the SEW approach to a stronghold is to enhance critical thinking capabilities and simple commonsense. Together the mentor and the mentee destroy the strength of the debilitating thought.
RESTORATION OF YOUR SOUL: Renewal is often required when counseling a person who has been abused, raped or has been exposed to a traumatic experience. Becoming whole is a work of the Holy Spirit and is received as a captive is delivered from the inner hurt and pain from past experiences. Then the Holy Spirit comes in and heal those wounds. Forgiveness often plays a part in this releasing process. Oftentimes, self-forgiveness needs to be received as the captive may be holding things against him or herself which must be released. Once truth is known and accepted, frrdom is obtained.
EXPULSION OF THE ENEMY Confronting cosmic entities directly is where either devils or demons are driven out of the client by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of the Holy Ghost. After success in the first three stages, expulsion is often un-necessary. However, in various cases, direct confrontation of the powers of darkness cannot be avoided. At this stage, the client MUST sign and notarize an informed consent form called the DDF, the Deliverance Disclaimer Form. There are no exceptions.
Dedicated Ministers who themselves were captives have been trained to conduct mentoring sessions. Visit our page called SEW Ministers to read a brief bio of 7 of them. I recommend that you give SEW mentor a one month trial and you will not be sorry. www.pamsheppard.com/online_ministers_available
