Shiloh House

Mission Statement: The ministry of Shiloh House is to help Christians attain transformational intimacy with the Christ within them through discipleship training and healing prayer that removes hidden obstacles and hindrances to their spiritual walk caused by hidden emotional wounds, fear, anxiety, anger, and unforgiveness. By means of allowing God, not man, to search the heart as King David prayed “search us Lord for anxious thoughts and hurtful ways, and expose the hidden errors in our lives we can’t discern on our own”…”cleanse me from secret faults that they may not rule over me…” (Ps. 19:12, 139:23-24). Teaching how to allow the Lord to expose the roots and bring deliverance from negative emotions, tormenting thoughts and endless cycles of wrong choices that will “rule” if not dealt with. Subconsciously hindering intimate relationship with the Lord, and healthy relationships with others. These are often the root cause of depression, feelings of rejection, inferiority, not belonging or fitting in, loneliness or even physical illness and disease…The purpose is to show how to attain and maintain total freedom in the Spirit to fulfill the Lord’s purposes for your life having your heart and mind “guarded by the peace of God”. So that “His love may be perfected in us….as He is so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17).

“Emotions the gateway to knowing God”…. (Jonathan Edwards In “Concerning Religious Affections”), where he stated that “conversion is undeniably…emotional…intellect enters in, but feeling, not thought, is the gateway to knowing God”. Science has confirmed his observations showing that emotions originating from what Scripture calls “the Heart” exert control over our thoughts and choices, explaining why counseling that concentrates only on our thought processes or outward behaviors can be ineffective; it fails to give the proper weight to the underlying emotional roots that exert control over these areas of your life. Not understanding this truth many in the Church taught that emotions are unimportant. The truth is, we were created in HIS image as thinking, feeling, and choosing beings with our emotions designed as conduits for the “God emotions” love, joy, peace, (The fruit of the Spirit). Negative emotions are God given “alerts” that warn us that we are no longer walking in the Spirit but entering the fear based Kingdom of the enemy…you can learn how to allow the Lord to get to the root of and heal (not just cope) with negative emotions, tormenting thoughts and endless cycles of wrong choices from unforgiveness and emotional wounds. (Often hidden below the level of consciousness but still hindering intimate relationship with the Lord, and healthy relationships with others). These are often the root cause of depression, feelings of rejection, inferiority, not belonging or fitting in, loneliness or even physical illness and diseases…”For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” (All involve emotions, even righteousness is love in action, or loving deeds).
.”Above all else, guard your heart, (spiritual and emotional center) for everything you do flows from it”. Prov. 4:23. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (The Greek word for “mind” encompasses thoughts, will, and emotions…not just intellect). The Lord has provided everything you need to be free from life controlling problems and self-sabotaging, destructive behaviors. Like King David we must allow the Lord to “search us for anxious thoughts and hurtful ways, and expose the hidden errors in our lives we can’t discern on our own”… (Ps. 19:12, 139:23-24). Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Freedom.

What the Ministry is about

Shiloh House’s goal is walking together with each other until we are able to come to the “fullness of the Stature of Christ” focusing on becoming Disciples of Jesus and living a consecrated life. One of the means of accomplishing that involves showing you how to be healed of the emotional wounds we all have that hinders intimate relationship with the Lord and healthy relationships with others. Using practical easily understood means to get free from life controlling problems, cycles of sin, destructive and self-sabotaging behaviors resulting in an increasingly intimate fellowship with the Lord and others.  Not through human counseling but allowing God to search your heart (mind, will, emotions) and reveal the areas He desires to bring transformation to in the divinely determined order he makes known. Ps. 139:23-24 “Search my heart oh God and see if there be any anxious thoughts (negative emotions) or hurtful ways (negative choices) in me, and put me on the everlasting path.” The idea being that each born again believer has Christ the healer residing within, and once you learn in the simplicity of Christ how to yield and allow Him to work, you won’t be reliant on people, “experts” or others anointing but on the Lord Himself. All we do is coach/ facilitate how to experience that!

Hal and Pam are a husband and wife team passionate about teaching others how to live free in Christ. Founders and Pastors of Shiloh House After experiencing the changes for themselves for several years under Dr. Dennis and Jennifer Clark’s ministry they focused on training others through home groups and meeting with individuals who desired to learn how to get free themselves and then how to minister freedom to others. (Getting healed and free and becoming a healer for others). They are certified instructors of the Full Stature Approach. Often mistakenly called “inner healing” but really just removing obstacles to true discipleship and proper relationships in His body. (God isn’t in the business of ‘healing” the old man but crucifying and killing Him and giving us new replaced life through connection with Him)! Galatians 2:20-21.

Determining if you struggle with emotional wounds

Recurring negative intrusive thoughts about yourself or others. (That voice in your head telling you you’re a failure, feeling rejection, shame, guilt etc. as a regular part of your life).

Unforgiveness/ bitterness-reliving memories of things done against you in the past. Holding onto the “record of wrongs” and injustices, unfair treatment you feel you have experienced.

Pet peeves, having dramatic negative responses to minor irritations.

Constant low level Depression, stress, anger, rage, hurt, feelings of rejection, not fitting in or feeling like you are on the “outside” etc. (more so if high level). Never really experiencing as a reality the peace that passes understanding that Jesus promised.

Anyone who has been through a traumatic situations from an accident, to abuse, rape, difficult upbringing, death of loved ones, divorce, situations resulting in PTSD etc. will have emotional wounding.

The spiritual significance of what Shiloh House represents: A sanctuary, a place of peace, tranquility, a “house” habitation, dwelling place, for the glory and worship of God. Shiloh was the city the wilderness tabernacle containing the Holy of Holies and the Ark of the Covenant came to rest after Joshua led the Israelites out of the wilderness into the Promised Land. It was the focal gathering point for the tribes of Israel, and in Genesis 49:10 seems to be used as a messianic name for Jesus the Messiah who is our peace.
