2020.07.20 – Realization Incident about Spiritual Abuse

Date:                     July 20, 2020

Location:              Home, Barrigada, Guam

Narrator:             Shepherd Etma


The brief meaning of Spiritual Abuse: It is an abuse using religious doctrines and beliefs for self-gain (power and money). It is difficult to recogniz these spiritual abusers but we may if we apply the following verse:

  • Matthew 23:3, “So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.”

Most believers are unaware of the abuse for their leaders appear so religious but in 2 Cor. 5:17 and Hebrews 8:13, the old has gone and the new is here. In this 21st century, to be righteous must be to focus on the requirement in attaining eternal life as expressed in Matthew 25:31-46, the Judgment Day. To describe it briefly is to be a “Sheep Not Goat”.

There was a series of unusual things happened from 2018 up to 2020 for a reason. I lived in Chuuk for over forty years and all of a sudden, my wife who was also part of the miracles, wonders, and signs, was chosen as instrument:

2010.04.22; Singing Midnight Birds Incident (My Wife was used as Instrument; John 15:16)

For only one day preparation, we went to go to Guam where several things took place that changed the direction of our lives. One major was the pandemic, Covid19, that caused us to experience lockdown for a long time.

I believe strongly that it was through divine intervention guiding me to path that I will more time understanding the Scripture, especially the Gospel, in relation to the series of miracles, wonders, and signs under the 21st Century Divine Revelation that took place in Chuuk, and continued in Guam.

Being subjected to home lockdown, I had more time for meditation that made me understand the past and the terms and issues happening around the world. I have written some and posted it on this website, especially the Wakeup Call hoping to subject humanity to a deep Spiritual Awakening to prevent to lose its spiritual identity that God has given to us. Because of modern technology in the digital age, humans are more living a life, not as spiritual being but digital.

The group of human beings greatly affected by this sudden change is the group of little children, 5 to 12 years old, who are addressed as “Little Ones” in the following verse:

  • Matthew 18:6, "If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea."

The above expressed that it was the most important command of Jesus and in our popular saying, “The Children are the future.” How can that phrase be true if the little children got stumbled and those who caused them to stumble are doing the spiritual abusers. The spiritual abusers are applying religious doctrines, and somehow, they are teaching, guiding the believers to practice idolatry by establishing false religion using the bible but applied only the teachings of minor importance and avoid the major commands. They emphasized commands more from the Old Testament, rather than the New Testament. Worship was very popular in the Old Testament but no longer in the New Testament. Causing God’s wrath for them suppressing the truth by their wickedness:

  • Romans 1:18, "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness."

In this money-worshipping world, there are many truths talking about God, the Father but there is only truth that Jesus was for born and came into the world to testify:

  • John 18:37, "You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

Jesus was sent for the New Creation:

  • 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"

Supported by this verse:

  • Hebrews 8:13, "By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear."

But we do not things that Jesus came to abolish the Law or the Prophets:

  • Matthew 5:17, "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them."

The time has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth:

  • John 4:23-24, "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

God is spirit, a divine being and not like gold or silver or stone:

  • Acts 17:29, "“Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone—an image made by human design and skill."

God does not live in houses made by human hands:

  • Acts 7:48-49, “However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: ‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be?”

God is love and if the spiritual abusers might have preached this but they do not expand up to this verse:

  • 1 John 4:12-13, "No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit."
  • 1 John 4:16, "And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them."

The above is revealed in 2004.07.02; Human Heart Shape Incident (God is Love; 1 John 4:7-8).

Surprisingly, out of the many religions worldwide, it is hard to believe that the true religion stated in the Gospel was not known to believers:

  • James 1:27, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

The command to keep from being polluted by the world is supported by the following two verses:

  • Galatians 5:13, "You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love."
  • 1 John 2:15-16, "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[a] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world."

Because the false prophets have proliferated worldwide, we end up having the “Bad Fruit”:

  • Matthew 7:15-16, "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?"

By their fruit we can recognize the false prophets and we can use this to recognize too the spiritual abusers. One simple test to know if the religious leaders is a spiritual abuser is to apply the following verse about money:

  • Matthew 6:24, "“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."

And it is revealed in the Bread Moth Incident:

2004.12.03; Bread Moth Incident (Jesus is the Bread of Life; John 6:35)

And hereunder are the episodes of 7-legged spider incidents, giving us warning the presence of spiritual abusers:

2008.06.20; First Seven-Legged Spider Incident (The Seven Woes on the Teachers of the Law, Matthew 23)

2016.05.07; Second Seven-Legged Spider Incident (7 Bad Fruits from Bad Religions; 2 Timothy 3:1-5)

2018.01.09; Third Seven-Legged Spider Episode (The Modern Set of the 7 Woes to the Modern World)

One field that the abusers are in control is education. They are more focused on intellectual growth than spiritual. Another is when the authorities have ignored to cut short the school period of the students, since in the digital age, almost everything is available within their fingers tips. Students (especially the little children) are to study only asics that they can graduate college at 18. They will have more time to spiritual growth, eating food not only for the stomach but mainly for the heart (Mat 4:4). And I believe of the quote from this philosopher that was used as divine instrument:

  • “Education the mind without education the heart is no education at all.” - Aristotle

It strongly matches the following verses:

  • 1 Samuel 16:7, "But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

If the school focus on intellectual growth of children, they will live their lives as religious in their adulthood and not righteous:

  • James 2:24, "You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone."

One main thing about faith, if without love is nothing (1 Cor. 13:2). And as in attaining eternal life, it must be faith with good deeds:

  • James 2:14-17, "What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."

Supported by the modern revelation, as in Action Moth Incident:

2005.01.07; Action Moth Incident (Faith without works is dead; James 2;17)

To glorify God is not by worship but by good deeds:

  • Matthew 5:16, "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Spiritual education is now needed to replace as the priority of children that they will truly become the future of the world for peace.

Children are true spiritual beings but misguided to become religious manipulated by their pastor or abuser that they become devoted mostly in idolatry.

The truth Jesus testified is not subjective but objective, and it is expressed in the following verse:

  • Galatians 3:28, "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

And revealed in the Heart Shape Coral Incident:

2008.02.17; Heart-Shape Coral Incident (A Call for Unity; John 17:20-23)

One teaching in the Bible that we humans are truly spiritual being because mankind was created in their image and likeness:

  • Genesis 1:26, "Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

During creation of mankind Jesus was with God as expressed of the above and supported by the following verses:

  • John 1:2-3, "He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made."
  • John 10:30, "I and the Father are one.”

And humans have this calling: To live a Holy Life:

  • 1 Thessalonians 4:7-8, "For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8 Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit."

And what is so important for Jesus is not just unity but complete unity of humanity that the spiritual abusers used to ignore causing world chaos:

  • John 17:20-23, "“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."

Love for God is to obey his commands, not worship or church service:

  • 1 John 5:3, "In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome."

Many call Jesus Lord, Lord including the spiritual abusers but they are not obedient to Jesus’ commands:

  • Luke 6:46, "“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?

Because most believers are misled, they become lawbreaker of the laws, including the spiritual abusers:

Christ’ Law

  • Galatians 6:2, "Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."

Royal Law

  • James 2:8, "If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right."

Entire Law

  • Galatians 5:14, "For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself."

instead of church service, Jesus emphasized works of service:

  • Ephesians 4:11-12, "So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up."

Jesus did not want to love God by neither worship him nor God the father but obey God's commands

  • 1 John 5:3, "In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome."

And this is the basic command:

  • 1 John 3:23, "And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us."

As to attain eternal life, Jesus did not mention anymore was written in the Old Testament, the first four commandments:



In Matthew 19:19, Jesus added the 2nd part of the greatest commandment, love your neighbor as yourself, that is meaningful and connected to this verse:

  • Galatians 5:14, "For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself."

If the spiritual abusers got enlightened, start to be shepherds of the flock or the church of God:

  • 1 Peter 5:2-4, "Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away."
  • Acts 20:35, "In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

And for the believers, obey the following:

  • Colossians 3:23, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters."

If we claim that we live in Jesus, then must live as Jesus did, not as he died:

  • 1 John 2:6, "Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did."


To avoid being a victim of Spiritual Abuse in the field of idolatry, consider the following:

  • 1 Corinthians 10:14, "Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry."
  • 1 John 5:21, "Dear children, keep yourselves from idols."
  • Colossians 2:18, "Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind."-
  • Revelation 22:8-9, "I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me. 9 But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your fellow prophets and with all who keep the words of this scroll. Worship God!”


To recognize false Apostles (2 Cor. 11:1-13) consider the following verses:

  • Acts 10:25-26, "As Peter entered the house, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet in reverence. 26 But Peter made him get up. “Stand up,” he said, “I am only a man myself.”
  • Acts 4:32, "All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had."
  • Acts 20:33-35, "I have not coveted anyone’s silver or gold or clothing. 34 You yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions. 35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”


Consider this as strong warning:

  • 2 Timothy 3:1-4, "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—"
