Excerpt taken from “the Church of the End-time Zombies, Chapter 4
The truth to be emphasized is that God never “wills” instead of man, and whatever a man does, he is himself responsible for his actions. A churchgoer whose will has become passive will gradually discover that he has the greatest difficulty making decisions of any kind. Consequently, a zombie will look outside and all around him for something to help him decide the smallest matters. “Lord, which color outfit should I pick today? Is this a day for blue? Guide my hand Dear Lord, as I move it through the hangers of my closet and You pick what I should wear today!” This is the kind of foolishness that highlights zombie beliefs and behavior.
When he has become conscious of his passive condition, he has a painful sense of being unable to meet and manage even the mundane situations of ordinary life. If spoken to, he knows he cannot will to listen till a sentence is completed; if asked to judge a matter, he knows he cannot do it; if he is required to “remember” or use his imagination, he knows he is unable to, and becomes terrified at any proposed course of action where these demands may come upon him. The tactics of the enemy are to drive him into situations where these demands may be made, and thus torture or embarrass him in front of others. Little does the zombie know that in this condition he may, unknowingly, rely upon the assistance of evil spirits, who have brought about the passivity for this very reason—to control him like a puppet-master.
“The faculty unused lies dormant and dead in their grip, but if used it is an occasion for them to manifest themselves through it. They are too ready to “will” instead of the man, and they will put within his reach many “supernatural” props to help him in “decision,” especially in the way of “texts” used apart from their context, and supernaturally given, which the believer, seeking so longingly to do the will of God, seizes upon, and firmly grasps as a drowning man a rope, blinded, by the apparently given Divine help, to the principle that God only works through the active volition of a man, and not for him in matters requiring his action.”
You had a dream that you should move to Georgia. Or perhaps someone from your church prophesied over you and proclaimed that “God has called you to minister in Georgia.” The same day, you heard Ray Charles sing, “Georgia on My Mind.” Then a stranger called you on the telephone from Georgia, but it was a wrong number. In the afternoon, a friend stopped by and gave you some peaches. Georgia peaches.
“So there it is” you say to yourself. I got 3 signs or witnesses that provide “confirmation” to my dream or prophetic word. God wants me to move to Georgia. For the sake of understanding, I have cited such a ridiculous example in order to highlight what foolish believers do constantly. The “confirmation” thing is nothing but an assumption, not based on fact, not based on truth.
When the Holy Spirit sends a message, He does not have to confirm it. He may, or He may not. Actually, confirmation is connected to cause and effect religion. Did you know that religious cause and effect has its roots in Buddhism in the concept of karma? Religious cause and effect among so called Christians operates in the unwritten law of three, labeled confirmation. In other words, to determine whether a thing is from God, when two other things happening around the same time, the 3 events are considered to be proof that God did it, as if the devil does not know how to connect and cause three things to happen as well.
Confirmation is a religious practice we all have fallen into at one time or another. In fact, it is the foundation of the prosperity gospel. Consider that you gave an offering of $70 and a few days later, you receive $7000. So you attribute your giving and the increase to cause and effect. The cause is that you gave the offering to the church and the effect is that you received a huge bonus. In other words, your giving caused a bonus, when in reality, the money was coming whether you gave in the offering or not. The subtle suggestion is that your inheritance came because you gave in the offering even though someone had to die for you to receive the death benefit. So was the death caused by your giving? That is how ridiculous this sort of reasoning can get.
To get rid of demons, this kind of cause and effect thinking has to stop. As a first step to put an end to cause and effect thinking, I do not allow people I counsel to attribute their blessings to me, just because “a blessing” happened a few days after a phone session. Why? Because the reverse can happen also. You have a phone session with me today, and you fell down and broke your leg the next day. Cause? The phone session. Effect? The broken leg. If I take credit for the blessing, then I must also take credit for the misfortune as well.
Now of course, there are exceptions. For example, I advised a former zombie that she was not born again and I directed her to the gospel that I had preached in a video. She took heed, watched the video and God saved her in less than 24 hours after the phone session. The cause in this instance is that God had already been working on her and the Holy Spirit had led her to me. Clearly God was in this born again experience so we did not need confirmation.
Also, if I cast a demon from you today, and your torment is gone tomorrow or next week, then there is a plausible cause and effect connection between a session with me and your improved condition. To be “plausible,” is not a certainty. For it is quite possible that if the captive had just waited and received truth, the evil spirit would have left on his own accord. Just know that if you have a phone counseling session with me today, and you get bad news tomorrow, there is no plausible connection between the contact with me and the events that transpire.
I must admit that there has been a noticeable trend in my life that people who support me find that their lives make a noteworthy improvement. This was also the case even years before I became born again. Then again, people who strongly came against me have suffered dire consequences that I personally had nothing to do with. Is this cause and effect? Perhaps. Only God knows so it is not something that I would take time to try and prove.
My main point is that the more you look for confirmation and depend on it, the more opportunity you give to demons to keep you in captivity. How many of you have declared “I surrender all” in the IC and would not act unless you got some kind of sign? Assumptions are constantly made by Christians who believe that “the 3 witnesses rule” is an indication that a sign, a wonder, a message or a particular circumstance is “a confirmation” from God. Confirmation! It’s a twelve letter dirty word that covers a wide field of consideration. In fact, Satan and his crew get many chuckles out of this one.
Jessie Penn Lewis is the most notable author on this subject, followed by Watchman Nee, decades later, who merely repeated Jessie’s teachings. Below are a few of her insights on passivity:
The word “passivity” simply describes the opposite condition to activity; and in the experience of the believer it means, briefly, (1) loss of self-control–in the sense of the person himself controlling each, or all of the departments of his personal being; and (2) loss of freewill–in the sense of the person himself exercising his will as the guiding principle of personal control, in harmony with the will of God
.All the danger of “passivity” in the surrendered believer, lies in the advantage taken of the passive condition by the powers of darkness. Apart from these evil forces, and their workings through the passive person, “passivity” is merely inactivity, or idleness. In normal inactivity, that is, when the evil spirits have not taken hold, the inactive person is always holding himself ready for activity; whereas in “passivity” which has given place to the powers of darkness, the passive person is unable to act by his own volition.
The chief condition, therefore, for the working of evil spirits in a human being, apart from sin, is passivity, in exact opposition to the condition which God requires from His children for His working in them. Granted the surrender of the will to God, with active choice to do His will as it may be revealed to him, God requires co-operation with His Spirit, and the full use of every faculty of the whole man.
In brief, the powers of darkness aim at obtaining a passive slave, or captive to their will; whilst God desires a regenerated man, intelligently and actively willing, and choosing, and doing His will in liberation of spirit, soul and body from slavery. The powers of darkness would make a man a machine, a tool, an automaton; the God of holiness and love desires to make him a free, intelligent sovereign in his own sphere–a thinking, rational, renewed creation created after His own image (Eph. 4: 24). Therefore God never says to any faculty of man, “Be thou idle.”
God does not need, nor demand non-activity in the believer, for His working in, and through him; but evil spirits demand the utmost non-activity and passivity. God asks for intelligent action (Rom. 12: 1-2, “Your reasonable service,”) in co-operation with Him. Satan demands passivity as a condition for his compulsory action, and in order to compulsorily subject men to his will and purpose.
God requires the cessation of the evil actions of believers, primarily because they are sinful, and secondly because they hinder co-operation with His Spirit.
Passivity must not be confused with quietness, or the meek and quiet spirit,” which, in the sight of God, is of great price. Quietness of spirit, of heart, of mind, of manner, voice and expression, may be co-existent with the most effective activity in the will of God (1 Thess. 4: 11, Gr. “Ambitious to be quiet.”).
Passivity of judgment and reason, which means that the man in this condition has closed the mind to all arguments, and statements upon which he has come to settled conclusions, and all effort to give him further truth and light is regarded as interference, and the person attempting it as ignorant, or intrusive. The believer in this stage of passivity lapses into a state of evil positiveness, and infallibility; from which nothing can release the “judgment,” but the rude shock of seeing that he has been deceived, and possessed by evil spirits. To undermine the deception of a believer in this condition, almost means the re-laying of the very foundations of his spiritual life. Hence the few–called “fanatics” and “cranks” by the world–who have been saved out of this degree of the deception of the enemy.
Ceasing to use their true reasoning powers, they become open to all kinds of suggestions from evil spirits, and false “reasonings”; for example, in regard to the coming of Christ, some have falsely reasoned that because Christ is coming soon, they do not need to carry on their usual work, overlooking the words of the Lord on this very matter: “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath set over his household, to give them their food in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord, when he cometh, shall find so doing.”
Because of what he will gain through it, therefore, the devil will do anything to engender passivity in any form whatsoever, in spirit, or mind or body.
