Tales of Glory returns with A Field Guide to Advanced Spiritual Warfare - Chapter 06 - Strongholds!!
In this episode, we dive into Strongholds! What are they? How do they differ from the contemporary Christian literature deliverance perspective? Are strongholds our behaviors or demonic oppression? Are all people seeking deliverance ministry demoniacs as they claim? How do you discern those who are demonized from those who are dealing with their behaviors? Deliverance ministry can be tricky and deceptive. How do you identify dissociative identity disorder and trauma survivors? How is this ministry different from deliverance ministry? We cover these perplexing issues that surface in most ministry sessions involving strongholds.
Deliverance ministry and strongholds are not as straight forward as popular Christian authors tend to portray. They can be nasty, tangled, and complex to resolve. This episode covers the complex spiritual road to healing the whole spectrum of strongholds.

Tales of Glory dives into Santa Teresa of Avila's Fifth Mansions Chapter 02.
In chapter 02, Saint Teresa explains to us her classical metaphor of ascetical and mystical prayer life - the silk worm and the butterfly. Here she explains how the silk worm is like a soul in the First through Third mansions, developing from a beginning to advance prayer interior life. As the soul prays, like the worm feeding on the mulberries, the soul begins to go deeper (cocoon) in Jesus Christ. Where it makes its home before emerging later as a butterfly (a soul in the mystical states of prayer life).

M16 Ministries - Introduction to Spiritual Warfare Ministry 101 - Module III Mark 9:29 Ministry Supplemental for the class I taught at Open Door church in TX, Jan 30, 2021. In the class I covered four major topics as a primer for spiritual warfare ministers, topic 3, or module III, Mark 9:29 Ministry - Battles in the Occult and Exorcism, I gleaned over quickly to focus on the more pertinent module IV, on Dissociation. So I didn't feel I gave module III the proper time and justice. But when you're trying to obedient and respect the time given to you, you adapt accordingly. But I felt afterwards, I wanted to provide the material to the students. Here is module III, from the class. The home blog location for this video is at:

In this episode of Tales of Glory, Fireside Chat edition, we look at mystical experiences of locutions as they apply to discerning internal voices. Is a demonic voice always demonic? Can a dissociated identity (a part) take on the appearance of a demonic manifestation.
Pastors and counselors, what do you do when you think it is a demonic presence, but the demon won't leave? We cover some important topics in Christian inner healing and spiritual warfare.
How do you discern demons from dissociated human parts? Some good points on ministry are presented to help you become a more effective deliverance minister, inner healing minister, and Christian counselor.

Special Tales of Glory Fireside chat edition, a demonologist released a video on his Facebook account, asking if Christian ghost hunting was a sin. He invited responses and comments. The content was so unbiblical and full of holes I felt a response was necessary. What does the Bible say about Christians who ghost hunt (spiritism)? I provide the scripture and fill in the blanks where the demonologist provided a very vague and unbiblical argument.
So kick back in your easy chair, stoke the fire in the fireplace and grab you cocoa. It's time for a fireside chat on how ghost hunting is a sin!

We enter into the mystical mansions of the interior castle. Souls entering the Fourth Mansions begin to experience mystical prayer experiences. A new prayer experience happens here that conflicts with our third mansions style of prayer meditation - infused contemplation.
The Fourth Mansions is both joyful and full of spiritual warfare as the soul begins to experience absorption and the will is drawn into the presence of God. Saint Teresa provides us with insightful spiritual direction through the gateway to the deeper mansions.

Tales of Glory - Interior Castle Third Mansions Chapter 02!!!
Souls in Third Mansions are far along in their prayer life. We are walking with a high degree of self-confidence, and presume we have our prayer life all figured out. And then, we start experience horrible dryness in prayer. Our buckets at the well are coming up empty and we are no longer having the experiences in prayer we once had. Saint Teresa counsels us through this terrain of prayer aridity.

After some hiatus and a little quarantine time in between, Tales of Glory - Interior Castle First Mansions Chapter 02!
Let's dive into this classic manuscript on prayer and see what the Saint has to say on developing your interior life. We are in First mansions, where we just entered the castle and the soul is beginning to learn to pray. Or as the Saint says, the soul opens into itself through prayer.
In chapter 02, Saint Teresa wants to warn us about the dangers of mortal sin, before we move into deeper mansions. We must address our sinful nature, before advancing through the castle. Otherwise, the venomous vipers and reptiles, our own sinful natures we allowed in with us will draw us back out!
