Fear, the Second Oldest Emotion Known to Man.

The first duty of man is to conquer fear; he must get rid of it, he cannot act till then. Thomas Carlyle Scottish Philosopher.

We all experience fear at some time in our life. Some of us have never had a moment of rest from this evil spirit of torment. First let me say fear was never, and is never given to us by our Lord.“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Adam and Eve were created in the image of God, perfect and holy, just like God was and is. At the exact moment Adam and Eve disobeyed God, innocence was lost forever. We have the account in Genesis 3:9,10, then the Lord called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid (fearful) because I was naked; and hid myself.”

A lie from Satan was given a place in Eve’s heart. She chose to believe a lie more than she believed God and His commands Genesis 3:4,5. Satan has been busy using the weapon of deception and fear ever since.

The fear that came to Adam and Eve, knew where to attach itself in them, in their mind, that is the fight or flight area. God has given us fight or flight to alert us to danger so that we may respond by our fight or flight abilities in instances of fear for our self-preservation. The wages of sin are death (Romans 6:23) Adam experienced separation from God’s quickening Spirit and the loss of love from God and as a result, he felt fear as a torment.

Fear is the second emotion (a disturbance–excitement-a conscience mental reaction) mentioned in the Bible; in this verse is where fear entered the world, it is one of the oldest emotions known to man. The first emotion belongs to Genesis 2:25 which is shame.

Much of this world lives with fear daily. Every one of us has been subjected to fear. In that subjection we are not talking about fight or flight but a dreaded unclean spirit of fear that used God’s fight or flight as a means to harm us because it was given legal rights because of sin.

Fear is an evil spirit, not an emotion, fear will produce an emotion, a feeling of fear.

Two Dimensions of Fear.

Part one is the Spirit of Fear. It is a principality that has approximately 33 other spirits (See appendix) under its control, each one has a specific function and they all cooperate. This spirit wants to park itself in your soul and spirit so it can do its evil desires. Some of those desires that produce fruit are panic attacks phobias.

Fear is a phobia, the Bible says, Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Proverbs 3:25-26. What grips you is sudden fear, that is the panic attack. This type of fear is called a phobia. Another strong Scripture says, “But who hearkeneth unto Me, shall dwell safely and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” (Proverbs 1:33).

The Spirit of Fear can an often does come when we are in our mother’s womb. It can gain entrance from mom’s fear of dying while giving birth. Many are targeted because of God’s high calling on their life and this Spirit of Fear wants to keep these people from fulfilling God’s Destinyfear-tree in their life. (Ephesian’s 1:4).

We must not allow the ancestral line of curses and failures to run the course of our lives. We do not have to conform to our inherited spiritually. By faith in prayer you can drive the Spirit of Fear, out or have someone pray it out in Jesus name.

Part two includes the fruit of fear which can become part of you biologically. Through prolonged fear one’s mind can become programmed through long term memory (see Memes) and there does not have to be a Spirit of Fear present to accomplish this torment. Fear has been resident long enough to become biologically part of you so that any phobia can send you into fear.

Here is a brief description of what occurs. Many from their mother’s womb are attacked by a Spirit of Fear which plots and plans terror to be present all the while a person is growing up. Most Christians never consider the fact that their life has been preprogrammed by Spirit of Fear and other unclean spirits. We are all raised in a world controlled by Satan’s unclean ways. His imps constantly put disgusting thoughts that lead and drive us into sins. Our Adamic nature jumps right in with its lusts and on and on it goes.

By the grace of God, a person invites Jesus to be their Savior, this begins the walking out of our Salvation which is to be done daily (Philippians 2:13). We have to be converted from the old way of life to the new way of life in Christ Jesus. What has to take place is, new memories have to replace the old memories which are all based on lies and deception. In this process based on a relationship we learn how to live in the kingdom of God obeying God from our heart.

“Perfect peace belongs to those whose minds are fixed or settled on the Lord.” Isaiah 26:3. When you keep your mind renewed in the Word and your meditations on Him and bringing your mind and heart together they will affect a peace in your body unless you have issues that need to be addressed. We have to learn to fight the enemy long-term by the abiding peace within. Soon the reactions of fear will subside because the old programming broken.

You have to take back your life. To quote Watchman Nee “When you have done all, just stand.” In most deliverances there are certain things that must be dealt with before we can get to root issues, fear is one. We can all live fear free.

Definition: An unpleasant emotional reaction by an individual to an actual, or presumed, negative judgment of himself by others, resulting in self-depreciation.

Shame is the first emotion mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 2:25. “Adam and Eve were both naked and not ashamed.”


Tyndale’s translation (paraphrased) records the incident of the first sin and eating the forbidden fruit as follows: “So she ate of some of the  fruit, and gave some to her husband, and he ate it too. And as they ate it, suddenly they became aware of their nakedness, and were embarrassed. So, they strung fig leaves together to cover themselves around the hips. That evening they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden, and they hid themselves among the trees. The Lord God called to Adam, ‘Why are you hiding? And Adam replied, ‘I heard you coming and didn’t want you to see me naked, so I hid.” (Genesis 3:7-10).

The word naked, “Erwah,” symbolizes “shame” and is a different word from the word” Arom,” meaning “to be without clothing.” “Erwah” appears to emphasize the shame that results from the violation of moral and social laws, and the law of conscience. We prior to being born-again are subjected to the violation of these laws which can bring serious mental damage to our emotions.

Idols formed

Shame becomes toxic when we allow someone (or someone forces us) to break our boundaries of morality. See the rape of Tamar, in 2 Samuel 13. Shame not only disfigures our inner conscience-self, but it alters our social conscience-self; when this happens, “fragmentation of soul” can result (Psalm 7:2). This topic will be covered latter.

Shame breeds shame.

Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones in his book, I Am Not Ashamed, makes an interesting statement: “I now want to put before you the Biblical view of man. The Apostle Paul puts into his letter to Timothy in a very interesting phrase. Come back to this great work of his, for which cause I also suffer these things. Nevertheless, I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded—I am perfectly certain, I am perfectly satisfied.” Paul in this passage, is expressing that our faith, our believing in Christ, should be sufficient for us in all things, in all circumstances, and in every situation. Unfortunately, not all of us have arrived in this place of “Blessed assurance,” and we are not fully purged from the iniquities of the past (2 Timothy 2:19-21).

The hidden things of Shame.

Please read Romans 6:19-21 (Amp) and 2 Corinthians 4:1-2. (Amp). In these two Scriptures, unresolved moral conflict will cause shame. Sin should not reign in the believer’s heart. Paul’s use of the word “reign” in Romans 6:12, is “Basileuo” and means “to exercise kingly power.” It means to stop allowing our sinful nature to reign as king in our mortal body. It is the believer’s responsibility to keep sin from mounting onto the throne of the heart.shamed

Instead of the blood of Christ cleansing the inward heart, shame becomes a covering.

A person in this condition may outwardly express a life of holiness, but deep inside there are secret thoughts, feelings and desires. It is these disgraceful things that rob us of our true beauty or nature of Christ. The personality becomes marred, and we lose the image of Christ within. This will produce discouragement and lethargy in out ward manifestation. Here is where shame covers the spirit, stealing its inner power and strength. The person will become despondent and timid, and the person becomes weary and exhausted.

The inner secret thought, feelings and desires must be confessed after we renounce the shame. Our Lord Jesus said, “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are downtrodden; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” (Luke 4:18-19).

How does one get set free.

See 2 Corinthians 4:2 Amplified. The second prayer is a guideline for the “renunciation of Shame.” In the name of Jesus, I come to the cross of Christ where all structures are broken.  I renounce all generational shame that came from my parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. I renounce the curse of shame of and poverty. I renounce all personal shame and embarrassment. I release myself from the cycle of shame caused by my own sin or someone’s sin against me. I renounce all family familiar spirits of shame that oppress me, my family, my children’s children. I forgive my forefathers for their sin that caused the curse of shame to come upon me. Thank You Lord Jesus for releasing me from shame.

Blessings to you in Jesus name. 

Introduction to Inner Healing and Deliverance

The Cross

What is broken, can be made whole,

What is dirty, can be made clean,

Resentment, can become forgiveness, 

What is covered, cannot be healed.

Not all wounds, are visible

But, the Cross, is always the place of exchange.

A good case can be made that Jesus was ministering inner healing when He spoke to the woman at the well, who then went into the city proclaiming, “Come, see a man who told me all the things that I have done” (John 4:29). Jesus may have been healing her entire life. Those of us who practice inner healing are convinced it is not only Scriptural but a main theme in God’s Word. (please refer to Scripture list handout in the Appendixes).

Is Inner Healing Scriptural?

Luke 6:46-49—John 21:1-17

 What is Inner Healing?

 Inner healing is applying the redemptive and healing work of Christ to lady-and-moonthe areas of darkness and bondage in our souls that have not received the healing light of Jesus Christ and have opened the door for the enemy to come in and keep us from walking in victory in that darkness or bondage area.

The tools of inner healing are the spiritual disciplines including prayer, confession, forgiveness, and counsel which allows us to walk in the Light and Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The focus of inner healing is identifying the unhealed access areas of darkness that gave the demonic permission to operate in that area, confess these areas of sin, repent for the behavior resulting from these unhealed areas, and allowing the Christ to cleanse and heal. (Colossians 1:9-14)

Inner Healing practitioners look at character, therefore, to discover what practices in the old nature did not die when we first received Jesus as Lord and Savior.

What is Deliverance?

Specifically, deliverance is the Spirit-empowered ministry of expelling demonic spirits that influence the thoughts, will, actions, and emotions of believers and unbelievers. The authority to expel demonic forces is given to every believer. (Mark 16:17, Luke 10:17-20) In practical terms, deliverance is telling the enemy to leave through the power and authority of Jesus Christ, whose Spirit resides within each believer. The enemy recognizes authority and must bow his knee to the authority of Jesus Christ.

 Are Both Deliverance and Inner Healing Needed for Freedom?

 Yes! Deliverance, which tells the enemy to leave, without inner healing leaves the door open for the demonic influences to return to those access areas and attempts to lead the person back into bondage. Inner healing, which closes the door or access point to the enemy, without deliverance, allows the spirits of darkness to continue to attempt to lead the person back into sinful behavior or unhealthy ways of thinking. When the spirits have been ordered to leave, they cannot return if there is cleansing, healing, and filling with the presence of God in the areas where they had operated.





Grief, Sorrow, Catharsis.

Grief is the cognitive and emotional process of working through a significant loss.The removal or death of anyone that has emotional value will set in motion a grief reaction. While grief is painful it is viewed as a healthy response, for without it a complete emotional recovery is not possible.

The most prominent symptoms of grief is acute psychological pain, emotional pain, a profound sense of loss of expectation, wide pattern of mood swings, feeling hurt, guilt, defensiveness, helplessness, anger, sadness, rage, loneliness, resentment and hopelessness. As if these symptoms are not enough, eating, sleeping and sexual disturbances are common as well as headaches, low energy levels, ulcers, dizziness and colitis may develop.

Grief may be worked through, healed, and resolved by faith, whereas sorrow may return many times.

Sorrow and tears are not signs of lack of faith. Sorrow is a healthy release of loss and hurt. The presence of sorrow is not something bad to be done away with, nor is it something to be healed too quickly. It is a mark of love’s knowing the pain of loss. It will pass away naturally in time, when its work is done in the heart.

Catharsis is outpouring of pent-up emotions.Tears are a gift of heaven. Such sudden outbursts of tears are undeniable evidence that the quest has neared the mark of truth. The emotional release usually opens doors of insight. One may begin to remember long-forgotten or repressed details. Precious ground may be covered in the afterglow of tears. 

This one of the many areas where Inner Healing under the leading of the Holy Spirit can and does bring healing to all areas of the soul. Line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little. Isaiah 28:10.
