From time to time I run across a spiritual revelation that explains a great deal. This is one of those. Whether this spirit merely prevents a man from having intimacy with his wife or others, or is the root of much hatred and violence toward women, depends on the man, his woundedness and generational line. Obviously, the opposite revelation is also true – women may have a man-hating spirit. I remember years ago a brother talking about being at a meeting where a group of feminists was sharing a stage. He said down to the last woman, each had been molested or violently treated in some manner by a man. Thus the man-hating spirit was understandable. Without Jesus’ sweet forgiveness being exercised by these women, they would indeed remain resentful, angry and hateful toward the male gender. The following was received from Aslan’s Place: http://aslansplace.com/language/en/about-aslans-place/
Over the course of my ministry, I have been privileged to meet many wonderful people who love the Lord but have been greatly assaulted by the enemy. The misery caused by this oppression has manifested in excruciating pain and misery. Many of these servants of God have found themselves lashing out at others without a true understanding of the motivation for their behavior. Gavino Guerrero, in conversation with the Lord, has gained some very interesting insights into the dynamics of the struggle of Christians who have first suffered abuse, and then gone on to abuse others. I love his thinking processes, and trust you will find this article helpful in ministry to others.

“I share the…thought to make manifest the hidden hate that Satan planted and operated in me throughout my life. I was awakened to this truth by the revelation that I was carrying hate towards my mother, and by extension, the feminine gender.”
In the parable of the wheat and the tare in Matthew 13, hate is at the core of the concept used to reference the enemy. The Greek word for ‘enemy’ is ecthros, which means hate, so it follows that a person whose essence is hate will naturally be an enemy. God sees either love or hate. There is no gray or neutral area.
The objective of the Greek concept that describes an enemy is to highlight its essence and bring attention to the uncontrollable impetus behind his adversarial position. Immanent to this concept, is transcendence to the superficial expression that is used to point out the presence of an enemy who seeks to undermine. Effectively, the Greek language, first and foremost, purposes to bring to consciousness the hate at the core of our enemy so that the enmity loses its evil euphemism intended to mask the hate. It’s imperative we understand we are not dealing with a “passive aggressive” enemy whose intention is to do some harm, but with one who is uncontrollably driven by the highest degree of unimaginable and indescribable hate as it seeks to murder, steal and destroy God’s creation. Furthermore, in the Hebrew language, the word for enemy, oyeb, is derived from the root word, ayáb, and also means hate, carrying the same concept contained in the Greek expression.
Using the NLT version as a guide, Matthew 13:25 could be understood: “But that night as the workers slept, the one who hated him came and planted [hate] weeds among the wheat [love], then slipped away.” Consequently, although as Christians we do not ignore that we have an enemy called Satan – and all his minions – we overconfidently pretermit his essence of hate and disregard that surreptitiously he methodically plants hate in the heart through those that wound; be it through family members, church weeds or a traumatic experience.
I share the antecedent thought to make manifest the hidden hate that Satan planted and operated in me throughout my life. I was awakened to this truth by the revelation that I was carrying hate towards my mother, and by extension to the feminine gender. This revelation came in connection to my mother’s practice to tie me by my ankle to the foot of the bed at an approximate age of six or seven, in order to refrain me from running around our small house, wreaking childhood havoc.
I had already been aware as a result of sexual trauma that: 1) at the precise moment of awakening to the abuse, the immediate impulse was to react with hatred toward God for not protecting me and, 2) hatred toward humanity, society and men supervened as the means to protect myself. Needless to say, I subconsciously justified the misotheism, misanthropy and misandry I carried by the emotional and psychological violations I had endured. Furthermore, these hatreds would be consolidated by physical abuse in the form of violent and hateful bullying, which occurred post-sexual abuse. Satan was methodically cultivating hate in my soul, and giving me an argumentative thought life that would keep the hate alive.
The survival instinct resulting from my sexual and physical abuse was interfaced with a peripherally developed pastoral family culture in which the interpersonal dynamic was, in itself, a response to the abusive, manipulative and hostile behavior of church “weeds” (those who are also hateful and abusive since they are Satan’s offspring and are motivated by his nature, per Matthew 13:41).
In order to reciprocate to the hostile church [people] environment, these interpersonal skills had to be founded on suspicion and secrecy. This is a necessary but lamentable dynamic that is often instilled in PK’s at a young age to protect them from church weeds who are bent on obtaining intel on their ministerial parents. Mistrust, hyper-vigilance, and no genuine relational connections are the inevitable result of: a) not being able to “allow anyone in emotionally” and, b) church people abandonment. In my case, emotionally detached and pretentious connections, most likely an Attachment Disorder, along with a well developed and finely tuned aptitude to adapt my personality, enabled me to masterfully reciprocate within multifaceted church and social settings.
Within the context of my life, I now understand that this interface is like living in a dimension within multiple dimensions where the subject is trapped inside the dimensions and has no choice but to develop survival mechanisms; because in this dimensional labyrinth, one cannot discern where the meaning and pureness of life is, and Satan can most definitely weave a very tangled mental web. Under these aberrant and coping behaviors, I was prime demonic-shaping material for a life of secrecy, antisocialism, isolation, superficial and unemotional relationships, manipulation of others, deceit, guiltlessness, deep hatred towards God and all church related life and toward humanity in general.
As if these addictive behaviors were not enough, the enemy also fomented in me the spirit of misogyny, which is the hatred of women. God is revealing to me that this misogynist spirit, and all spirits of hatred, is the evil power that operates machismo and male chauvinism. It is behind all the forms of degradation, torture, abuse and homicide of women, and is pervasive in every male-dominated society in the world. This is obviously a corruption of the love between a man and a woman as God intended, but the way this misogynist spirit operates is to deceiving to men via the ‘illusion of love’ and affection they feel for women. If we rightly concede that hate is antithetical to love, then the absence of love towards a woman is hate. This means that within the dynamics of pursuing a woman to have a sexual relationship with her, such an absence of love, normally interpreted as lust, is in essence the presence of hate.
God also revealed the presence of this misogynist spirit in my life, showing me that the practice of my sexual promiscuity transcended a coping behavior to fill a need, and was in actuality an exercise in hate. That is to say, men who lust after women are not looking for a relationship based on true love and respect, but their pursuit of women is driven by hate.

Heavenly Father, on behalf of myself and my generational line, I repent for and renounce all hatred and dishonor of women.
For myself and my family line I repent for and renounce engaging in forced marriages, prostitution, and the treating women as objects, to be bought and sold without regard to their safety or calling for the purpose of sexual exploitation or financial gain.

This prayer is included in our book Prayers for Generational Deliverance.
Upon the initial revelation of hate towards the feminine gender, I was led by God to utter the Error! Hyperlink reference not valid., as written in Paul L Cox’s book, Come Up Higher. As I prayed the prayer, God revealed to me the depth of this spirit’s influence in my life, which prompted me to look deeper into the subject. The aforementioned is the gist of what God revealed.
In line with Pastor Paul’s prayer, after articulating in Spanish another Prayer to Remove and Renounce the Misogynistic Spirit, Alice Mills and I have included repentance, removal and renunciation of misandry, misanthropy, misotheism and misopedia. I am thrilled to report that after my wife and I uttered the prayer, God manifested Himself and deliverance took place.
