Am I Supposed to Be “Covered”?

A member of our Deliverance Team was asked by a Pastor of another church, Who is your covering? This Pastor was really adamant in asking this question and advised for them to come to their ministry to be "properly" covered..

My wife and I were apart of Ministries where the Leaders invoked fear in the members of their congregations..That revealed to us the possibility of some control (Charismatic witchcraft, mind control, Jezebel) from these "covering" Pastors.

With alot of those ministries, members were expected to seek the opinion of the leaders on everything from buying a home or a car, to going fishing. If you feel you just HAVE TO ask your Pastor about everything, try some DELIVERANCE from the above demons and more. We have heard many times that "you must have a covering".Well, guess what? We can't find any supporting scriptures. I think with growing up in a "black" church, we always saw that structure (having a covering Pastor), and never questioned the validity of this biblically, because we felt, thats how its been done down through the years. But, just because something is done through tradition, does not make it right according to the Word of God..

Some people experience Salvation, Healing, DELIVERANCE, and Baptism in the Holy Spirit, in cars, houses, motels, in the woods, etc. (Outside the "church"). Gods Spirit and Anointing is NOT limited to the four walls of a building...My wife Shanah, is a prime example. She received the Gift of the Holy Spirit, inside of her Living Room around 11pm at night. She was not in a church building.

If the subjection, submission, and "covering" of a "pastor", "leader", or "church" is required, then why would the above experiences occur without a "pastor", "leader", or "church" present, and not take place always in a "church"?When JESUS was on the earth He was not in a "church". He went to different places. When the disciples were called, they were not in a "church" as we know of today. Paul was called and he was not in a "church". The "church" as we know today was not around then. Were they out of the will of God?The Bible says in James 4:7, "submit yourselves therefore to GOD".

Hebrews 13:17 says "obey your spiritual leaders and submit to them [continually recognizing their authority over you], for they are constantly keeping watch over your souls and guarding your spiritual welfare, as men who will have to render an account [of their trust]. [Do your part to] let them do this with gladness and not with sighing and groaning, for that would not be profitable to you [either]." This scripture does not say you MUST go out and get a spiritual leader. If you have your own ministry, then you are the spiritual leader, and you submit to GOD. However, if you are not a spiritual leader, and you have a pastor or spiritual leader, by all means submit to them, if YOU want (not if THEY SAY YOU HAVE TO).

Note the above scripture says "leaders" and "them". Read this scripture again slowly.If your "leader" is not walking in DELIVERANCE, do you think he\she can really guard "your spiritual welfare"? Don't EVER put your "pastors", "leaders", or "churches" in a higher position than God."
