Why receive ministry at Aslan’s Place?

Those who come to Aslan’s are people who are seeking healing and deliverance. Some are facing seemingly insurmountable challenges and problems and do not know where else to turn. Some are Leaders in the church and community and are seeking understanding in Discernment and Deliverance ministry. Our intercessors and prayer ministers pray for each person to be released from generational bondage through repentance and renunciation. So that they come closer to the Lord, walking in their God-given authority and inheritance.

Deliverance and Generational Prayer (6)

Is it okay to pray generational prayers for someone else?

The short answer is no, it isn’t appropriate to pray generational prayers for someone else.
When we pray generational prayers, we are acting under the authority we have through Jesus Christ over our own life and our generational line.  We simply don’t have the authority to repent on behalf of others.
Incidentally, we must also be careful to never “stand between” evil and another person.  Only Jesus can do that. (Romans 8:34).

Why do I need to deal with generational issues? Wasn’t everything taken care of at the cross?

During Jesus‘ time on earth, He healed the sick, taught about the Word, cast out demons, etc.  Then after His resurrection, He commanded His disciples (and us) to do the same.  If every problem was solved by Christ‘s death on the cross, then Jesus would have simply told us to follow Him, died on the cross and then gone back to heaven.  Instead, Jesus and the apostles demonstrated that we must work out our salvation (Phil. 2:12).  Also, we understand from Ephesians 6 that we are still in a spiritual battle.
The big thing to remember is not only did Jesus pay the price so we can have eternal life through Him, He also provided a way for us to have access through Him to the authority that mankind lost back in the garden of Eden.
We’ve found time and time again that new levels of freedom and healing are released after a person follows God’s lead in dealing with generational issues.

Should Christians be involved in Shapeshifting?

The short answer is no, because the Bible teaches against it.
Here are details:
By definition, shapeshifting is the act of changing physical form.  Usually into form of animals.
The Bible tells us that we are created in God’s image.  In addition, we were given dominion over animals (Genesis 1:26-27)
Genesis 5:1-2 and James 3:9 are two more examples of how we are made in God’s image
Therefore we should be aspiring to be like God through Jesus Christ, not like animals.
Furthermore, Romans 12:2 tells us:
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
This is another example telling us we should strive for God’s perfect will, not to strive to be like animals.
We can also come at this from another aspect.  The act of shapeshifting is demonstrating the belief that animals have a quality that is coveted.  This is essentially worship.
As the first commandment, Exodus 20:1 makes it clear that we should put nothing before God.
Romans 1:25 makes it clear that it is wrong to worship creation rather than that creator.

 

Is it biblical to talk to a person who has died?

I can think of a couple examples where God reveals a person who has died:
1 Samuel 28:3-19 – Saul consults a medium in order to contact Samuel.
Luke 9:30 – Elijah and Moses appear and talk with Jesus
It is important to note that Elijah never “died”, he was carried to heaven.  However, Moses did die (Jude 1:9)
Saul was clearly operating in error when he tried to consult Samuel.  It was God who allowed Samuel to appear and talk to Saul. (even the medium was shocked at what happened (Vs. 12)
The example in Luke 9:30 was clearly initiated by God.
We have many biblical examples where we are told not to seek out consultation with the dead. (Leviticus 19:31 and Isaiah 8:19, to name a couple)
So, does it seem biblically possible that a person who has died would be revealed to us?  Yes it does.
However, I feel that the Bible indicates that we should should never seek out such an experience.
If it is discerned that God reveals a person who has died, we should immediately seek God and ask Him what He wants us to learn. (as it says in Isaiah 8:19)
-Brian P. Cox

 

Will my siblings benefit from my generational prayers?

From our understanding, when you follow God’s lead to repent for sins in your family line and clear off curses, the greatest impact is in your personal life.  In addition, the lives of your own children will be positively impacted.  This is due to the fact that you have been obedient to work with Christ in cleaning up your inheritance and that of your children.

It stands to reason that repentance you pray will help to remove “generational pressure” off of your siblings and their children.  However, we don’t have a way of measuring how big the impact would be.

How long should I wait before scheduling another prayer session?

The short answer is that you should wait at least one month after a session before you consider scheduling another one.

Goals our prayer ministers have include helping you achieve breakthrough in all areas of your life and increase your preparedness as you continue to work out your salvation.  It is also the minister’s desire to help you nurture your personal relationship with God.

Once a session is concluded, it is important for you to spend one on one time with God in prayer and in His word (the Bible).  If you are looking forward to the next session, then you are possibility overlooking the healing and restoration God wants to bring you one on one with Him.

On another note, be sure to spend time taking inventory of positive changes in your life (no matter how small they seem).  Too often, we make lists of problems in our life and overlook how God is making things better.

Then, after time has passed, you can prayerfully consider another session.

 

General questions (5)

Where does the name Aslan come from?

The origin of our name comes from the lion Aslan, a character from C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. .  Aslan is the Turkish word for “lion”. Throughout Lewis’ books, Aslan represents Jesus Christ.

Therefore the name “Aslan’s Place” is intended to show that this ministry belongs to Jesus Christ.

What tips, suggestions or prayers to you have to intercede for others?

The short answer is that we should not intercede for others. Instead we should pray for them.
Romans 8:26 tells us that the Spirit intercedes:

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered.

A few verses later, we learn that Christ intercedes:

Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Consider Ephesians 6:18

praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

Oxford dictionary describes intercession, “to intervene on behalf of another”.

Intercession implies acting as an intermediary between either a person and God or a person and the enemy. We contend we do not have the authority to intercede, nor is it our place to do so.

We do have verses like 1 John 5:16 that indicate we should pray forgiveness for others. However, this is the act of praying for others, not interceding (speaking on their behalf).

So then, how should we pray for others?

Here is an example of how to pray for others.

God, I pray that you come in power in this persons life and bring your healing and forgiveness. Lord, I pray that you soften their heart and remove all deception from their mind so that they can perceive only your truth. Amen.

*All scriptures are NKJV.

How can I determine what I’m discerning on my head, hands, etc.?

We find that people discern the same items in different ways and locations.  If we all discerned exactly the same way, then that information would be documented and then possibly followed as doctrine.  People would then rely on the documentation instead of asking God.

 

Therefore it is important to continually practice so each person can learn how they specifically discern.
Our teaching called “Discerning the Battle” offers a biblical foundation on the concepts of discernment.
Our Exploring Heavenly Places events provide an opportunity for others to gather and practice.  Participation is available either online or in-person at our Apple Valley, CA.

Why do you have a person stand where you discern an angel before delivering a prophetic word?

Standing in a location where an angel has been discerned is called a “prophetic act”.

A “prophetic act” is a gesture or activity, performed in the physical world that demonstrates recognition of an event that is occurring in a supernatural realm.

In other words, by standing where we discern an angel, we are publicly declaring, “God I see that you have sent an angel and I choose to listen to what you want to say”.

We find that often times we will first discern that there is an angel with a message, but the message will not come forth until a person stands at the location where the angel is being discerned.

We are in no way declaring that you must stand in an angel in order to hear a message. In fact, if in a public meeting, a person declared that they felt a prophetic word, we would not have them stand in an angel.  However, we would still wait until we feel it is the proper time for the word to be delivered.

During all of our public meetings we work hard to follow biblical principles.  The Bible is very clear that everything must be done in the proper order.  (1 Corinthians 14:20).

What is Aslan’s Place’s stance on acupuncture?

We don’t have an official position on acupuncture. It does seem to have medical benefits, but the trick is to separate out the eastern philosophies such as controlling energy or “chi”.

The book Kingdom Power in Chinese Culture by Abraham Poon has a study on the use of acupuncture if you would like more information.
