Lesson 1

In this new series of blogs we will discover how images of idols burned on our souls affect our lives, our relationship with God, and block and hinder our spiritual gifts.

When we have an image of an idol burned on our soul, what we see and hear can be affected by that image. We look or peer through the image burned on our soul. Here is an example in the natural. I worked at a major television network and there were monitors in every room. At the bottom of the monitors were digital time clocks that ran constantly to tell how far into the program we were and how much time it had left. An image of these clocks eventually burned onto the bottom of the screen so that even when turned them off, an image of the clock could still be seen.

The station periodically sold the monitors very cheap, so I picked up a couple for only $20.00 each. The monitors were good, but everything you watched was seen through that burned clock. That’s why God tells us not to focus by looking or thinking on idols too long, because an image of that idol will be burned on the “screen” of our soul. Then, everything we think about, see, or do is affected by that image.

This is one reason people get divorced. They have been wounded in the past and, out of those wounds, begin to strike out at each other, which creates more wounds. Soon the wife decides, “I’ve had enough of this.” She doesn’t understand that the problem is in her soul. She begins thinking, “That guy at my office sure is cute.” She looks at him and thinks about him and because she keeps doing it, an image of him is burned on her soul. Remember, whatever is in your soul controls you!

Soon the image of her co-worker that is on her soul controls her. Then she decides, “I’m going to get a divorce!” Little does she realize that this image is controlling her will and her decisions. She thinks she is doing the right thing because her husband is so bad, and now she has found her true “soul-mate”. She even thinks she has gotten a word from the Lord about it! If she had only soaked her soul and gotten her wounds healed, she might still be married.

This is why you hear of students shooting their classmates. It began at school when they were taunted, bullied, picked on, and teased. This wounded their soul. Then at home, they play the violent “shoot-em up” games that they’ve become addicted to. The images of that violence coming off the TV shoots right into their eyeballs—the windows to the soul—burning those images with all that violence onto the soul. Then the idea hits them to kill people at their school. The wounds on their souls and violent images controls them causing them to commit murder.

How do images of idols affect our relationship with God and our ability to see and hear in the supernatural? We may be reading the Bible through the images of idols burned on our souls, thus getting wrong interpretations. We may get a prophetic word that comes to pass, but at other times they don’t. At times we hear from the Spirit, but other times we are hearing from the polluted stream of our wounded soul that has demons attached to the wounds and also has images of idols in it. We feel so sure of that word because that image is burned so deeply into our soul. But, when we begin to get our souls healed, everything will shift. When we hear from God, it will be clear, precise, and perfect. It will be pure. When we see in the Spirit, it will be exactly what’s going on. We will nail it. The wounds and idols in our soul affect our spiritual gifts. We think it’s just about the spirit—it’s not. It’s about the soul!

Next week, I will be showing you how wounds on your soul have a direct effect on your spiritual gifts! Catch you then!

    I keep having images of roaches in my mind and I keep thinking that I have too much yeast in my gut and that it might even be parasites and I’m doing coconut oil and apple cider vinegar and I’m having side effects from doing that I’m also applying the blood & the dunamis of Jesus and I’m asking Holy Spirit to go and find a root and help me be cleansed and healed quickly the symptoms I’m having are chronic fatigue and 10 other side effects and I know that you say it’s from sin and I believe it is but somehow all the symptoms are also related to the root of the chronic fatigue which I think is the yeast and I’m asking Holy Spirit to show me the root so I can get it out quickly and bind it in Jesus name i’m tired and I’m tired of being tired and I heard that I’m at the door that I made it through so how could I still be having symptoms ?

    Any thing you stare at/focus on too long and/or too often will become a burn in item which is then transformed into an idol. Even sports. Soap Operas. Even tragedies and bad experiences or ongoing negative trends in our lives that we transfix upon. Anything in this world can do this to us. God has been recently showing me this and it was really on time that Katie addressed it. Idols are very powerful things. More pwoerful than demons I think. The reason is that we all believe a demon is a dangerous thing…..but sports and soap operas = not so much. Yet aside from the supposed “entertainment” they offer do they not seek to compete with our spiritual times & places?

    How many days could you not pray/intercede in tongues for 15-30 min and yet found time on that day to do one of those OTHER things? It could be as common gossip, or always grumbling/complaining. It could be constant depression or some item we find ourselves doing WAY too much instead of the positive things Jesus counselled us to do and keep our minds on.

    Of course suddenly this makes basically our whole lifes subject to that. However this world is fraught with perils and denies the person of Jesus + the identity of GOD at all times. We then should always be prepared to make the proper sacrifices when it comes to the world vs God. I have recently adopted fasting from anything that I think may be an idol. So far it has been very revealing and indeed I can now begin to see alot of burned in items that had made themselves into idols and will be dealing with those according to scripture and prayer. Setting aside these idols = setting aside ourselves. Once we get ourselves out of the way, that creates a place for the Holy Ghost to set up shop and really begin doing powerful things in us/through us.

    As always, THANKS MUCH Katie & team!

    Y reading this just now I think the Lord it’s telling me what I’ve been asking him for days weeks even years what is wrong with me. I just have such a problem with anger that I can’t get rid of it. And after reading this I’m thinking there’s got to be more than one Soul one wound concerning anger. You have no idea the extensive Deliverance and going to sessions for Restoring the foundations and healing and Sozo ministries at a local church that I have received concerning this and I stay the same….specifically when I hurt myself like if I bump my knee and a cupboard that covers coming off the hinge and I cuss and swear and I asked the Lord about that because I can praise the Lord and say a cuss word in the same breath and he told me that cussing has to do with my anger. But it’s in my heart.and the Bible says the heart is above all else is Wicked.Ive called numerous Ministries like yours and asked for prayer. Nothing works. I feel so much like I’m just going through the motions. I know we don’t go by feelings but I want to feel love for my God for Jesus I want to sense and feel His presence when I pray when I spend time with Him at home or when I read His word but I don’t and I have no idea why, except the fact I have such a wicked heart :(. I think I’m not saved a lot because I have never had the experience some people say they have when they’re first saved that they say is so awesome, I never had that when I first got saved. I rededicated my life a numerous times but I still never had that special feeling of loving God being feeling like i Really am His child you know? I have make all these declarations and decrees and stuff , i listen to cd’s at night and watch dvd’s teaching the word. So I do get the word, faith comes by hearing? But i dont retain much of what I reaf or hear or listen to. I just feel like there just words and if someone asked I couldn’t tell them what a book or a CD was about and I have no idea why. Could you pray about this for me Katie and see if there’s anything that you may be able to help me with?

      My name is kevin and I support Expected End from way over in Atlanta Ga. I feel led to steer you into some quality info to address your situation. In your case I want you to pray and meditate and ask God to show you the single thing that makes you the most angry. I did this a few years ago and after 2 weeks of seeking God this thing came to me in the middle of the night and it was way back when I was in 5th grade which caused a major diversion of my life course. I woke up in tears and for an hour my soul emptied out. A couple days later I watched a Katie series I will disclose below and that gave me the proceedure I needed.

      That single thing = several actual things. 1) a chief of demons lurking in your life, 2) the most painful wound in your soul, 3) the sabataging demon that has attached itself to you and is causing you to self destruct continually, 4) the DESPOT that has taken a dominion over your life.

      Way back in HEALING SCHOOL (look up on youtube. There is a 3 part @ 20 min each short version & a several part 1hr each version. I suggest you start with short version and go from there. Note you may find parts 2&3 before you find part 1 so when you youtube search and find part 3, go to it and look at the side bar and find part 1),

      In that series, Katie explained despots which are ruling spirits with dominion. Goliath was a despot. All those things I listed above are actually 1 single item and that is what you need to find. Healing School will help you deal with that when you do. I have done the short version maybe 20 times! And each time it takes me deeper into those areas in my inner being where the despots have been.

      Now consider all 4 things above. Are they not all basically 1 actual thing in realized manifestation? YES THEY ARE! It may appear that there are multiple demons/issues/items. That is the deceiving spirit trying to hide the real culprit. There are others also hiding that one like self blame/condemnation; UNWORTHINESS; guilt and/or shame; HAUNTINGS OF FAILURES in life. Now please go and read about the David & Goliath event. Notice there HOW MANY SPIRITS/soldiers with sheilds surrounded Goliath to HIDE HIM. IF Goliath was so fierce…..why was he hiding behind an army of small guys?

      That is your issue. Your anger is YOUR GOLIATH = that 1 tormenting item lurking somewhere in your being and perhaps your past. All the other symptoms are the spirits hiding that despot. ONCE HE IS REVEALED, use the Healing School methods Katie gave to address that demon. When you do remember: “Submit yourself unto God, then resist the devil(S), and He/they shall flee from you”! (James 4:7).

      As you get your breakthrough, please call Expected End with your report.

      GOD BLESS!

    Have you ever had a voice come out of the wall, that shook the room as if it was electric in the air also? It was very booming, deep and stern, was this God? It said: “Don’t marry THAT man!”

    I thought it must be a hidden Speaker, but it’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Very scary!

    In this article you said, “Remember, whatever is in your soul controls you!” As I read, I believe, Holy Spirit, brought specific former events to my mind. The reason I know this is from Holy Spirit is that I felt no condemnation about them. He also gave me the problem attached to the event. Thank you Holy Spirit and for the fact that your healing work in this is taking affect. As my soul is healing I am beginning to experience how gentle is Holy Spirit’s approach with us about problems He wants us to face head own, so He can administer healing to our souls. This is an attribute of Holy Spirit that I missed before I am sure because of having so many wounds on my soul. I am so glad for Holy Spirit’s healing touch, so that I may experience His gentleness. Is this what it means for our spirit to bear witness with Spirit of God? Thank you, Katie and Robert Souza, for following the path God laid out for you to do. Blessings!

    Hi Kimberly:)
    Jim(Jesus in me:) in Australia here!
    The things that happen to us in life do not define us.
    We are who God says we are.
    Joel Osteen is very sound in his teaching on this!

    “All things do work together for good”…Rom8:28
    “And all things are of God”…2Cor5:18a

    I shall not want! . . .He restoreth my soul! Ps23

    Thank you for the post, Katie! God showed me while I was reading your post that I have made cancer/breast tumor an idol. I’ve been so obsessed over getting healed that I’ve burned the idol of this disease into my soul. The Holy Spirit brought this to my attention so I could repent and soak in His Light. Thank you!

    Something that the Lord has been dealing with me on as long as these lines is, the names that we are giving at our birth. Sometimes names carry meanings and we absorb those meanings into our soul. For example my name is Mary and growing up everybody would say Mary Mary Quite Contrary. Yet the lord gave me a dream about abomination, and in Proverbs the third chapter it talks about the froward being an abomination. Froward means contrary. Lord then begin to show me how I needed to take the blood and apply it to all those words to my past and my soul when the word contrary was used in association with my name. Just wondering Katie do you ever do any kind of studying or has a holy spirit given you any kind of Revelation on how our names affect our souls?

      Hi Mary on how our names affect our souls I have not looked into yet but it sounds like a very interesting topic 🙂

    • Joshua Mitchell May 19, 2018 at 10:39 pm - Reply

      The topics that are connected to the soul are just really endless. They’re so expansive, they’re so wide, and varied. As I have been, digging into Scripture over the years, I have found so many things connected to the soul and how the wounded soul affects so many areas of our life, places that we have no clue are there until God shows us that we need healing in that area. God wants us to get healed in our souls because he wants to change every single area of our lives. He wants us to live the abundant life that Jesus came to give us, and that is going to happen! You’re going to start to see amazing miracles happen when you get your soul healed. #WoundedSoulBook

    *SADLY, I think this is what happened in my marriage, only it was my husband, not the wife…. we were having our problems, no doubt…. but I think instead of working on them together, he sought and found solace in a female co-worker… someone that would listen to him (even though he wasn’t talking to me about the things in our marriage he was speaking with her about) – and now here we are… he moved 2800 miles away, and just this week I got the notice on my door of papers from his lawyer I need to sign for 🙁 this is never where I wanted us to be….

    now I have another wound to my already wounded soul to contend with…. it hurts beyond measure
