My Review of DID Series 3, Complete With the Cribbed Notes, Comments, Ruminations, and Thoughts from the Weekend

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
O L-rd, how many are my foes!
Many are rising against me;
Many are saying of my soul,
“There is no salvation for him in G-d.”
Selah
But you, O L-rd, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the L-rd,
And He answered me from His holy hill.
Selah
I lay down and slept;
I woke again, for the L-rd sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me all around.
Psalm 3:1-6 ESV

It was exceptionally appropriate and a touch ironic for me that Arthur led off New Strategies for DID, Part 3, with the first three verses of this passage.
Appropriate because this passage deals with dynamics (rest, sustainment, answers from the L-rd, identifying Him with our glory, and the one who brings us dignity,
Ironic because the first time I heard this psalm preached, it came from someone who ultimately became an adversary and who was originally the picture of safety.
The second time I heard this passage taught and broken down, was at this live event, 17 years later.  Arthur did not know it, but when he began the live event by framing it with this passage, he was ministering a great deal of life and healing to my spirit and soul.
He focused on verse 3, and told us that one of the shades of meaning for the phrase that is translated “the lifter of my head” is “the one who brings us dignity”.
And then from there, he discussed that part of our job and focus as we minister to clients is to bring dignity to not just the people to whom we minister, but also to the parts with whom we interact.  No matter how damaged, or mangled, or raw, or beaten, or bruised, or angry, or vengeful a part is, our job as followers of the L-rd, counselors, and clinicians is to bring dignity to-and spare further harm of-parts.
The lion’s share of the live event covered live demonstrations with individuals who had parts, and each of these was followed by Q and A segments, where we got to pick his brain and interact with each of the demos.
 
INDIVIDUAL WITH AN ANGRY PART
He then modeled this dignity with an individual who had han angry part.  And, get this: he blessed the anger of the angry part, specifically given the fact that anger is a sign of two things:

  1. A sense of justice
  2. An objective.

And when he came to the issue of blessing the angry part, I felt a specific sense of release when it came to my own issues with anger, which are many and varied.  I spent a great deal of my own life being angered at people passively accepting garbage that was not G-d’s purpose or plan, and just acting exceptionally conciliatory to situations that they did not need to accept.
 
INDIVIDUAL WITH A LILLITH
From there, Arthur moved to another few individuals that had varying degrees of sensitivity in their spirit.  He had variously covered some stuff to do with the spirit of Lillith, which, when present, often negatively affects relationships between women and either other women or other men.  In some of the mystic writings, Lillith is associated with feminism and control, and the old legends say that Lillith was Adam’s first wife.  Now, we as followers of Christ know that is a farce, but there is a spirit associated with that legend that has sought to create a name and press for “herself” that looks to infiltrate and damage marriages, close friendships, familial relationships, and relationships within churches.  There is a livestream from the SLG website that I would also recommend on this topic for those that want to dive further in.
As Arthur worked with that issue with his client, I felt a jump in my own spirit, and a grip on that issue.  During this second client, I worked with the L-rd from my spirit, to work through some of those issues that were cited in the work on Lillith.  I have dealt with a number of personal issues that pertain to negative relationships with other women and men, in terms of control, and while I am not a woman myself, there are dynamics of giving and receiving that affect both men and women, and the dynamic of receiving is more of a feminine trait, strange as that sounds, and my receiver had been broken in some ways for quite a while.  I began to feel a sense of relief as I worked through the issues, some which my wife and I have begun working on ourselves together with each other.  The payoff has been pretty substantial.
 
THE INTANGIBLES
Following this, there were a couple of other clients that Arthur worked with, but what really landed with me, beyond these first couple, was the level of camaraderie among the group.  There was that certain intangible quality of new friendship-building in a conference on Dissociative Identity Disorder that one does not typically encounter.  Typically, this is an atmosphere that I would have expected at a marriage and family conference.  This day was so life-altering in terms of the communion and strength of community that happened, that 20 of us went out to dinner at the end, and many new relationships were forged.  I began the process of risking in a way I did not know I was capable of.  And I was able to take part in the beauty of a new expression of G-d the Father’s love of Community.
Certainly, we need to have DID and SRA in the mainstream conversation, and we need fewer people who are intimidated to work with it, and along with ministry to survivors, we need competent people who are trustworthy and gentle to work with those who are divided and surviving,  not merely well-meaning and loving ignoramuses, nor competent jerks.
Principle-wise, another facet of this series that was so critical is the way in which Arthur built out the concept of trust and taking our time when it comes to working with those that are hurting and need us to maintain a spirit of gentleness and humility.
Also, another aspect of the value in this teaching is the way in which Arthur worked with a client who had a number of Alien Human Spirits that affected that client’s journey IN THE CONTEXT OF WORKING WITH PARTS.
Seriously, gang, this series was veritable potpourri, mixed in with some solid anchor points that would benefit any believer who works in the healing/deliverance/counseling/pastoral/friend-of-survivors-and-parts professions and wants to experiment with some different, nimble modalities.  This series will be well worth your time and purchase, if for nothing else than it will carry the fragrance of intimacy and touch on some topics that need convering desperately in the body of Christ.

A part is often caused by a trauma that is too big to bear.
A little kid goes down to use bathroom and gets a one second picture of a light on in parents’ bedroom of Daddy trying to kill Mommy. Causes division.
Could be parents having sex, doesn’t matter. It looked like death was taking place.

Prayer for the angry part
Jesus has the sword that can separate anything.
I ask the L-rd to visit the place of your harm, and separate the angry one in all of their humanity, and separate them from the various places on the property from the spirit of abandonment, and restore them to original design.

Separate them from all of the other negative dynamics. Cleanse defilement from SSBBO, Office of Personhood, Daughter/son, man/woman. Apply the Blood of Christ to the situation.
I ask You would extract from the angry one the demonic presence that the part thinks is part of its essence. Remove every unholy spirit form the presence of the angry part.

Quit qualifying it with the religious term “righteous indignation”.
“Righteous indignation” is a 20 letter word for “anger”.
-Clyde Fant

G-d made anger.
Let me repeat that for those with a religious mindset with respect to anger.
G-d made anger.

Do not jargonize it with the foolish idea of “righteous indignation.
Ephesians 4:27 does not qualify anger with the adjective “righteous”
Knock it off with the religious crap, caca, garbage, foolishness, unwisdom, which creates and multiplies a lack of understanding.
-David MacNelley-
In order to have anger, or an angry part.
1) you need a strong sense of justice.
2) Also, you need a sense of an objective.

Enoch’s angry story of judgment:
It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the L-rd comes with ten thousands of his holy ones,
to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness that they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

Jude 14-15
That is anger and judgment, and G-d can handle and love our anger. Now, we cleanse the angry parts and we equip and release them and they work with Father to deal with the stuff. And do we need jumper cables.
#DID3
24))
We have a whole dynamic of psychology of wounded healers that know all, and dispense all the knowledge to the “stupid” know-little clients, and they are better classed in their discipline as “welfare psychology”. Rather we should give our clients an enviornment of collaboration, treat them as wise and capable, and give them the dignity to do their own work.
It is not my job or the job of any clinician to fix someone. It is our job to work with the clients and their assets.

Give them the dignity to know they are wise, and capable, and bring something to the table.
Stop being a know-it-all, or even a know-it-most.

Discern what the time and lands were used for, and deal with some of that junk.

We can get battered by religious institution traumabond.
-Arthur Burk-
Crap can get done by religion.
When a demonination or church embraces religion, then one of the evidences of that is people dying before their time. Including premature death through cancer.
One of the fruits is that we are battering people with religion and garbage and formulas only. Also, an OBSSESSION WITH CALLING PEOPLE HERETICS.
There are demoninations that are dying a slow death because of widespread premature death through cancer.
If there are people dying of cancer widespread in your group of institution, you need to ask G-d what is wrong with the context, and you need to look at bringing clarity so the group can repent and work through the issue.

The spirit of jealousy can breed predators. Predators can breed even in Spirit-led institutions that are Bible-believing. These predators need to be squelched. Your place needs you to be cleansed, healed, delivered so you can bring clarity so we can all sit before the L-rd, deal with our junk, and bring safety and wholeness to each of our individuals and our peeps.
Do not damage your tribe.

Jesus Christ had the bandwidth to minister to the daughters of Jerusalem in their weeping on the Via Dolarosa, DURING HIS SUFFERING. He BROUGHT DIGNITY TO WOMEN AND WOMANHOOD IN THE MIDST OF HIS SUFFERING. That is how audacious he was in His championing womanhood and women.

NT stories with dealing with the Antichrist Spirit:
The Rich Young Ruler got sent away, busted by Jesus for not coming the whole way.
The Woman Caught In Adultery was sent away with a rebuke, but much gentler.

The enemy messes with us, and then messes with us again with shame.
-Arthur Burk-
#DID3
44))
Exhorters are sensitive to rejection. They must come to terms with understanding and engaging deeply with Reality, Sowing and Reaping, and Pain and Suffering first in order to have a right framework. Period. If you are an Exhorter and refuse to hunt for Reality, Sowing and Reaping, and Pain and Suffering, you will not understand how to work with others well.
Secondly, other gifts need be able to determine if an Exhorter has a grip on this threefold principle or not, and if they do have a grip on this principle, the other gifts need to walk gently with Exhorters.

If Exhorters do not have a grip on Reality, Sowing and Reaping, and Pain and Suffering, OR the other six are interacting with a non-Reality-laden Exhorter in a soft fashion, OR the other six are not interacting with a Reality-Embracing Exhorter in anything other than a gentle fashion, then the interactions can be hampered.
Exhorters that are operating non-Reality are going to have a hard time interacting with others in the areas of their non-Reality.
Exhorters that are operating in Reality, parts or no, that are being harshly treated by others who have shelved the Fruit of the spirit, especially Prophets, can flee from the interaction.
If they have desired to embrace the pain, then we need to be willing to walk with them deeply, and even if we say “what are you talking about”, we need to be willing to work with them affectionately.

As far as cancer goes, I am not being metaphorical here.
Further, those cancers that are obtained in toxic environments may also not be getting healed when we visit various churches because they will still return to their cancer cluster, and the cancer is the fruit of a toxic environment, where betrayal or hidden iniquity or other nastiness is allowed to fester while believers walk in denial and lack of discernment when it comes to dealing the the garbage of a defiled portal or defiled time and land.

If you live in a landfill and visit a hospital for a conference and then return to the landfill to dwell and feed on defiled truth, then you are going to still have the negative fruit.
You can go to Bethel for healing and revival all you want, but if you live in a community with a hidden well of poison and people don’t flow in discernment, and they shut you down and stone you for being a Prophet, then the cancer will remain.
Just gonna say it this way, there are denominations that are dying and their missionaries have gotten loaded up with cancer on their first term out.
Cancer is not the fruit of life, but the fragrance of a culture of betrayal.
Kill the betrayal, and repent, or else your church or denomination will continue to reap destruction.

PROVOCATIVE THOUGHTS IN THE MIDST OF THE LIVE EVENT:
Gang, don’t just slow down and read my rants about church, or just my work teaching a dynamic. Rather get to know the whole of what I have to say, a broad bevy of David, and then you can move into understanding fullness. Then you can see a balance and not merely one dynamic.
Our capacity to call out heretics or our capacity to be gentle or our capacity to teach or our capacity to correct a problem, each taken alone apart from the rest, will provide an incomplete picture. We want a whole picture.

Calling out heretics is barely a detail in the kingdom.
A main idea is hunting for design.
You can call out liberal Christians, Evangelical Christians, Catholic Christians, Jewish believers, or Republicans, or Democrats, or, or, or, and completely miss out on the whole.
You can repeat how cursed our President is, or how cursed people are who speak out against the President, or this or that.
I am sorry, I won’t respond much to those who yell about politics on this forum, because none of you who “know the truth” about politics are changing anyone’s mind. Besides, the politics of this season flows from a very small-minded, didactic mentality, both on the left and on the right. I do not know many deep-spirited, large-spirited people who defend or criticize one of the more than two facets of the political reality in the United States.
It is time to move from the shallow end of the kiddie pool to the depths of Wakulla Spring in all arenas. What we have been bantering back and forth the last 18 years have been cups of water, because we have been mesmerized by the majority of the Prophetic Movement, which by and large FLOWS in a mesmerizing spirit and an open psychic door. We need to concern ourselves not with cups of water, but the deeps beyond Leviathan’s realm.
Deepen, widen, broaden, lengthen. This is broader than a demented Exhorter, and the small potatoes of heresy-hunting.
The depths of G-d.
Q, the big five networks, and the rest are the muck on the surface.
The depths are there to discern.
Why are you satisfied with so little?
Jesus did not die for a shallow church.
#DID3
65))
A lot of times, the authority that we use that we have earned in the church can lead to others becoming divided, especially if there is a controlling or abusive flavor to the behavior. Our authority should be used to love, and often times, in light of the truth that “the gifts and callings of G-d are irrevocable”, we can, walking in our authority, mistreat others.
This sort of unwise behavior must stop, and it contributes to our people becoming less and less integrated and willing to walk with and trust us.

His love for us will will us into existence because He yearns to redeem our family line. He loves to bring things back from death, from Sheol, and out of the grave.

My Review of Life, Dominion, and Honor

Yes, I know it is in the free section,, and, yes, I know that the Sapphire Leadership Group website does not permit us to review free items but…

Let me tell a story…

It was a few weeks before I was to travel to Toronto. We had just finished some time working with my wife’s property, having discovered a place where her land could have potentially blocked us from moving.

I was dealing with the parable of the Shrewd Manager (from Luke 16), and I was weighing whether or not I should e-mail Arthur, because the passage was just stumping me.

So, I did.

And he responded:

Needs a phone call.

A phone call? Why would an internationally-known speaker and leader in ministry talk with me. At least that was my thought.

So, calling him, I heard how he understands that parables, and as a result of that, got some understanding of the parable, but then he also told me in that conversation of a couple of resources that he had, one of them being Life, Dominion, and Honor.

His portrayal of the Trinity.

And, um, yeah. If we are understanding the Trinity, we will understand the roots of all that is.

So, what do these concepts have to do with the nature of the Trinity?

Well, let us look at the members and how they interact with us.

It is G-d the Father who who provides for us life and the gifts/resources that are necessary for sustaining life. Every good and perfect gift is from above, and does not come from the Holy Spirit, nor does it come from the Son. Rather, these gifts come from the Father.

These gifts are completed products, raw materials, talents and abilities, skillsets, strengths and weaknesses, relationships, the strength of hands to get wealth, and the sharpness of mind to construct means of building out the designs that lead to our increase in society and the kingdom.

When we recognize, realize, receive, walk in, and embrace the gifts Father has given us, we move into a place of sonship. Slaves do not have a bevy of resources, nor do they have more than they need. Rather one defining mark of a slave is the inability to see resources, and the eyesight that only can see lack in every direction. A slave also needs finished produces, and cannot understand how to work with raw materials and change those into what he or she needs to advance. The Prodigal Son required liquid assets; he, indeed, had a strong spirit of slavery.

Those with a Spirit of Slavery are also consumed by the Spirit of Jealousy; they are incapable of seeing the resources they have around them, but can clearly see, and therefore covet, the resources of others around them. They can only fix the problems they are handed with the resources that they do not have access to.

It is a problem for us when we fail to see the slew of resources that are available to us. When we think we do not have resources, we immediately question the goodness and generosity of G-d the Father, when He has given us resources. The issue, frequently, for those with a spirit of sonship is they are working with resources that are in a form which must be converted. Jacob, for example was being treated like a son when he was commanded as a rancher to DWELL in Bethel.

DWELLING in Bethel would have required him to convert all of his cattle and go into another business. Unfortunately, he rejected the instruction to dwell, and as a result, from that day forward, calamity struck.

*Further Note: Calamity actually began when Rachel refused to trust the G-d of Jacob for protection and instead stole Laban’s idols. It is possible that she stole those idols, thinking they would protect her from dad’s wrath. The problem is that, she stole those idols without informing anyone, and then Jacob inadvertently cursed her with premature death for stealing the idols. Either way, it was Jacob’s actions that led to destruction, starting with Rachel’s death.

It is G-d the Son, who takes those resources for life and use them in us to increase the Dominion of the Kingdom in the world today. Dominion is the primary expression of the Son. And Dominion is the primary weapon that is used to combat the powerlessness that is embodied by the Victim Spirit. We are not designed to walk in permanent powerlessness, but in godly dominion over all the works of darkness, and it was Yeshua the Son who came to destroy the works of darkness. We embrace the Victim Spirit when we cut ourselves off from others because we believe that no one will help us, even when people have volunteered help. Cain is an excellent example of the Victim Spirit. When he sinned, G-d came to him and said, “look, we can fix this. Here is how.” And Cain, instead of listening to G-d wanted to set the standard for how reconciliation with G-d was to take place. He rejected G-d’s roadmap back home, and instead chose to seek G-d his own way, and as a result, left and rejected the one thing he wanted.

When no one can understand, and no one can help, then we have opened the door to a Victim Spirit.

And it is G-d the Holy Spirit that bestows honor upon those who walk in Life and Dominion in sequence. As we receive Life from the Father and the accrue Dominion over Powerlessness by the work of the Son, the Holy Spirit gives us the fragrance of honor that causes our reputation to increase in both the kingdom and the culture. Honor causes us to see things as they really are, and it breaks the power of what we call the Mesmerizing Spirit.
And what is the Mesmerizing Spirit, you ask?

It is a pickpocket. A thief. It gets your eyes off of what the L-rd wants to show you and onto the one thing that will distract you, with respect to another person. On the one hand, it can cause us to focus on the one negative quality or set of negative qualities concerning a person or a situation that will cause us to jettison an entire good package, or, vice versa, focus on a set of good qualities and miss some critical negatives that would help us see the full picture, and so we will be taken in and deceived because we were not focusing on the whole picture. In short, we are robbed of a whole picture. The good qualities in a person can balance out some of the harsher negatives, and the negatives/flaws of a person can keep us from becoming enamored of that person.

That is, when we miss out on a full picture, we do not accord proper honor/proper place to a person or situation.

And we get hypnotized by being locked onto a particular quality.
We see this happen with churches. An entire good package of a church, people are ready to make this or that their church home, but because of one particular glaring issue, they are talked out or talk themselves out of embracing a wonderfully messy, imperfect situation.

On this teaching, spliced into the teaching of how to identify and deal with the perversions of the Members of the Trinity, Arthur covers snippets of South Carolina history and how G-d feels about the state.

Honestly, if you want not just a redemptive picture of South Carolina, but a functional, workable way of viewing the Trinity, there is no other resource I can recommend more highly for demonstrating the Members’ works and persons in practical terms than this.

Again, out of the park, Arthur.

Download and listen to this, gang. Seriously.

Arthur Burk's Review of Sweetwater Electronics

Arthur writes:

HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE
Customer service is broadly at a very low level. Most of us could spin out 100 stories of absurdly bad customer service.
Against the pervasive backdrop of a poor labor pool, abysmal lack of training by management and deliberate corporate policies to make customer access more difficult, there are the occasional stellar performers.
Sweetwater.com is a electronics supply house. We use them for all sorts of gadgets. Sometimes it is a generic stock item. Most of the time, Megan has to talk to Jason Koon and say, “I am trying to do THIS. Is it even possible?”
He asks a few incisive questions, shows her two or three ways it can be done, and then processes the order.
Their search engine ad says:
Discover The Sweetwater Difference! Unmatched Customer Service & Free Shipping. Free Expert Tech Support.
It is ALL true.
The precision with which they address our technical issues, giving us SIGNIFICANT free coaching is impressive.
The speed with which they get products out the door is amazing.
And the accuracy of billing, packaging and delivery is the best of all our vendors.
We had a small glitch in our electronics and on Monday Megan asked if she could replace a component before it completely crashed.
Midday she placed the order. Today, Wednesday, FedEx delivered it with panache.
All of that bespeaks exceptional systems that are carefully watched over by some wise manager.
But the personal touch is over the top. I called and placed an order once.
Before Jason filled the order, he had to ask about Megan. Was she still here? Was she OK? He found her very easy to work with and was a little put off when I called. (I am not Megan!)
As many thousands of customers as Jason deals with, that is simply impressive.
Join me in sending some blessings their way. A wonderful company to do business with.
And if you ever need an electronic widget of any sort I encourage you to send some money their way.
They are real.
And they didn’t pay me for this and don’t know I am writing it.
I am authentic too in my praise, and never for sale.

This is evidently a for-real company. And Arthur always gives polished and unembellished real commentary. If he, as a businessman and a consultant, says you can bank on a company, then do so.
