                             Lecture for Week of May 23rd - May 29th

Winter Semester 2010

BFOF Class Syllabus

  May 23rd – May 29th


Instructor: Dr. Dorothy E. Hooks, PsyD



The lecture for this week, May 23rd – May 29th, is entitled, “Principality of Occultism, Pharmakia, & Sorcery;it has been posted. This week’s lecture is going to revolutionize your life and set you free from many forms of spiritual bewitchment. It will show you the “more excellent way” of living as according to the Word of God. Jesus came that we might have life and have life more abundantly.


God did not design our bodies for the in taking of drugs; that is why every drug on the market has side effects and does not agree with our bodies. God is our healer and He does not need any help from drugs to do that. Drugs only mask the real underlying spiritual problem that is going on in our life. This week’s lecture will prove that to you.

Western medicine is designed to treat symptoms. When the symptoms are the root's cause, as in injuries or other traumas, it works very well. But the symptom is usually not the root cause. We need to learn to depend on God and discover those areas of our lives that do not conform to God's teaching. When we confess and repent disobedience, then the peace of God that passes all understanding floods over us, and His joy becomes our joy.

I am not downing drugs or Doctors in any way nor am I telling anyone to stop taking their medication – that is between you and God. I am only giving you the truth according to God’s Word.

Medications have their place but not as a permanent solution to your problem. God is the only permanent solution to our problems! Let’s get to the spiritual root of our problem; because there is one, no matter what infirmity is attacking our body. God did not create sickness, diseases, or illnesses; it is time for God’s people to be set free from the lie of the devil. Why would God cause sickness, disease, etc. to come upon our bodies, and then says by Jesus stripes we are healed? That is ridiculous! God want us to be in health and prosper.

To make sure we stay in health, Jesus left us His peace in John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (NKJV –

If we can get the revelation of this in our hearts and out of our heads, we will be able to walk in this peace, the peace which passeth all understanding every day. Because it is this same peace which God said in Phil 4:7 that will rule our heart and mind. This is what that verse says:and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (NKJV –

This is what The Message Bible says:  “6-7Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life” (

But the only way we will be able to walk daily in this peace that Jesus left for us is to be free from bitterness which includes unforgiveness, resentment, retaliation, hatred, etc. and stress & anxiety that these spirits cause. Give all that stuff to God! Every wrong thing people have ever done to you in your life; give it over to God and He will free you from depression and everything else you need to be delivered from. Then you will not need anti-depressant drugs, nor any other drug that really does not work and making you sicker with the side effects.

The “Topic & Goal” about this week’s lecture is listed below.

Topic & Goal:

Chapter Eleven: Principality of Occultism, Pharmakia, & Sorcery – Goal: to define and explain the principality of occultism, pharmakia, and sorcery. To accomplish this goal, we will:

  • Define Occultism, Pharmakia, & Sorcery
  • Examine Belief Systems
  • Discuss Medical Practices
  • Give A Partial List of The Occult
  • Give "Prayer for Overcoming the Occult"

If you have not gotten a chance to complete the previous lectures, that’s ok because the course is self-paced and you can begin at any time. All past and current lectures are listed on the school’s new web site: Remember, the BFOF Program is free!

If you have a problem opening the lecture link, please keep trying; sometimes it takes more than one try to open it. Also, as you study these lectures, open your heart so God can speak to you and heal you in whatever area of your life you need healing.

As always, you will receive a notice and the link once the next lecture (May 30th – June 5th) is posted. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Enjoy your journey of freedom - God is preparing you for His use.


In His Service,

Dr. Hooks
