The Chambers of Death
“Sally” has been on a journey for years, having received ministry from a broad cross section of healers, deliverance people and prophets in various nations. Her childhood included SRA with the usual violation of boundaries and there was subsequently a season of promiscuity.
That was decades ago. She has experienced great healing, is quite experienced at dealing with her parts when a new one emerges, and is functioning in a productive way in the culture.
Recently a part emerged that seemed definitely to be part of her own humanity, but was “incomplete.” It was hard to for her to describe but she settled on it being “a part of a part.” It was put in a safe place near Original Self and a few days went by without incident.
She asked the Spirit where the rest of that part was and got a general sense of “The Deep.” She dispatched the Prophet and Servant portions of her spirit to look for a defiled portal or something that might fit the description of “The Deep” where a part of a part might be held captive.
Then her life began to spiral down in an undefinable manner. Something was not right, but other than a fairly negative affect, there was nothing to point to.
She checked with me and I could not immediately discern any demons directly involved, but there was a sense that something offsite was messing with her inner world.
I spoke specifically to any entity in her that was causing the disruption and asked if it was an AHS or “other.” The cryptic answer that came back is that it was a combination.
I thought briefly about Nephilim but the Holy Spirit emphatically shut that down, so I was stumped.
I asked the Spirit to show her something and she immediately saw a hole in the vicinity of the cluster of beings, and said it had a string going down the hole to Death.
That immediately brought to mind Proverbs 7 which is the passage about the adulterous woman who is on a hunt and the man who gets taken in by her. There is a long series of implications to his bad choice, ending with the observation that her house leads to the chambers of Death.
The word translated “chambers” refers to an inner room, a very private place. Perhaps the French word boudoir captures it reasonably.
So it seems that somewhere in Sally’s inner being was an open door to the “chambers of Death.” I wondered about the “string” going down there and felt the Holy Spirit said it was a wire, transmitting the sounds of Death into this cluster of living things.
I invoked I Corinthians 15 about Death having no victory. Then I asked Jesus to do the following:
-Stand between the chambers of Death and the cluster of sentients, to block the sound and prevent any interference.
-Use the sword that can separate spirit from soul and detach the AHSs from the parts and from any critters.
-Return the AHSs to eternity.
-Extract and deal with the critters.
-Take the parts to the Original Self’s staging area.
Then I asked Father:
-To assemble the parts who were fragmented;
-To cleanse them from the sound of Death they had been marinated in;
-And to integrate the ones who needed to immediate become part of Original Self.
There was an overwhelming burst of activity on all fronts. When the dust had settled, the area around the chambers of Death was cleared. The “part of a part” had been fully restored. There was one other “complete” part present at Original Self’s domain. All the rest had been integrated.
And Sally was pretty much blitzed, it all went down so fast and hard.
I chatted with her for a while and with the two parts who were left. Then she needed to nap for in order to regroup.
Later in the day, we talked again. I was concerned about the antithesis to the chambers of Death. We certainly don’t want to leave a vacuum in the spiritual realm.
My hypothesis is that the arrangement of chapters seven through nine in Proverbs was a hint of the proper construct.
Look at the parallelism.
Proverbs 7:7 – 14 NIV
I saw among the simple, I noticed among the young men, a youth who lacked judgment. He was going down the street near her corner, walking along in the direction of her house at twilight, as the day was fading, as the dark of night set in. Then out came a woman to meet him, dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent. (She is loud and defiant, her feet never stay at home; now in the street, now in the squares, at every corner she lurks.) She took hold of him and kissed him and with a brazen face she said: "I have fellowship offerings at home; today I fulfilled my vows. So I came out to meet you; I looked for you and have found you!”
Compare that to Wisdom.
Proverbs 8:1 – 5 NIV
Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud: "To you, O men, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind. You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, gain understanding.”
So the adulterous woman and the woman called Wisdom are causes, and they are set in apposition.
Here are the effects of those two causes.
Proverbs 7:24 – 27 NIV
Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths. Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng. Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.
Proverbs 8:32 - 36
“Now then, my sons, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD. But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death."
So the chambers of Death are set in contrast to finding life and receiving favor from the LORD.
I proceeded to pray with her, asking Jesus to destroy the chambers of Death in her and to build the house of Wisdom in the strategic place in her brain.
This is based on Proverbs 9:1 – 6.
Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out its seven pillars. She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table. She has sent out her maids, and she calls from the highest point of the city. "Let all who are simple come in here!" she says to those who lack judgment.
"Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed. Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of understanding.”
Immediately after the prayer, Sally saw the banqueting room and saw just an open Bible on the big table. Throughout the day, she glanced in the direction of Wisdom’s house and saw it slowly being furnished.
At this point, we have a lot of perceptions and feelings. We will wait and watch for the “measurable, verifiable, sustained change” over time. I am not sure what we are looking for, but there should be an immense increase in her groundedness if Death is not broadcasting its sound into her, and surely there will be visible changes, as Wisdom becomes more dominant.
Now, one deliverance session is just a data point. There are a huge number of pictures and experiences in the spiritual realm that are just “one off.”
This one feels as though it is a principle. If so, you who work in deliverance and inner healing and who have a pool of people to draw from might test the waters and see if you find anything similar to this in others who have been sexual perps or victims.
I think there is much to learn here, probably with much broader application.
I would love to hear back from you either in the comment section, or via email at Friends@TheSLG.com if there is additional insight to these passages or this issue.

Chambers of DeathBy : Kathlyn Tsang On June 18th 2021
I had prayed the prayer for two of my clients before, both of whom follow your blog. But the latest client doesn't. She spoke of sensing death, of AHSs, horrific sounds coming at her, a young part covering her ears -- I put the pieces together and concluded she was describing the Chambers of Death. A lot of movement when I prayed the prayer you suggested. She described herself feeling more grounded in community at the end. A key difference between "Sally" and all three of my clients -- they didn't experience SRA and the subsequent fallout -- but all three were victimized by family members. Indeed, you might have a principle there.

Freedom from hell like feelingsBy : Wendy Willoughby On December 3rd 2019
I have been struggling with death like feelings of dread (It felt like I was in hell) on and off since Oct 2012. There has been many times along the process to get free that I thought, yay Im healed from feeling like I'm in hell, only to find that the dread would resurface again.
When I prayed the above prayer, I immediately felt free from all the revolting feelings I have been experiencing of being in hell and that I am noticing that I feel more secure in my foundation in Christs love for me. Thank you Arthur for helping so many of us that had been traumatised in our childhoods.
Thank youBy : Jan Stephenson On July 22nd 2019
Yes, yes, yes. What amazing truth and wisdom in Proverbs 9. Thank you so much for sharing your insight and application to Sheila's life. The words of an Australian song come to me reading this "Click go the shears boy click, click, click". Its an Australian song about shearing the sheep taking the fleece off cleanly, critters and all!

The concept of “Chambers of Death” helped slide several other puzzle pieces together for me. Mine was in my heart though, rather than the brain. Amazing results on several things that had been very stuck before. I’d be tempted to rationalize that it was just the power of suggestion but I can’t. The glorious truth is that God is really just that good at lining things up and He put me on the receiving end of this blog entry. Thanks, Arthur.

Chambers of deathBy : Gernot On November 19th 2018
My response is nearly the same like Sheila: it works (for me).
I had prayed two days before about such a issue to the lord. Because life is running in my direction, I see many blessings and former unsolvable problems have been solved or are in process of getting better. And I´m in a transformation to learn dominion from Jesus, where also the fist fruits a growing. So there was no reason to me, that make sense, why I have to rearrange my soul every morning because of this negative “sound” in my soul.
Before I was finished with reading, I knew that this was the answer of Him and I was asking Jesus, to step between the sound and me. I was sensing immediately, that he stepped there and it is done.
Something has changed significantly. It feels “lighter” inside, but I think, it will take time to align my soul.
The reason in my life is obvious for me, because I was going this wrong way, proverb describes. Papa has removed another big brick in this tragedy (I hope, is the last now) and I was able to put a label to this underground problem because it became visible to me.
Thank youBy : Meg Rolph On November 18th 2018
I just want to thank you for allowing us to access your ministry through your teaching on this blog. We have been following your blog for 9 years or more and ordered many of your cds. Few spiritual healers allow the world to learn from the revelations God gives for people who are hurting or broken. We are eternally grateful for the insight you've shared. We've utilized your resources with many people we've prayed with.
My husband is a prophet and I am an exhorter/mercy. I'm currently working at a ministry in that ministers to young women who've been traumatized or trafficked. Their approach is Godly but sadly doesn't involve much spiritual realm involvement. I've been trained in a few inner healing ministries (SOZO, Heartsync, yours!) and I yearn for a day when these tools will be utilized by the Body of Christ here. We've been able to pray for many from our home.
This blog entry reminds me of a gal I minister to who was sexually victimized in her childhood. She will just randomly desire death on days when things are going well. It's as though the desire to commit suicide just jumps on her. We've gone at it with generational ties in a bible study setting but that's it (she's a new acquaintance). I talked with her yesterday and her therapist is telling her she is bipolar and needs more medication. Grrr!! And so, I LOVE this entry because it reveals the TRUTH of what is really happening to these sweet gals who struggle with depression, self-hatred and the chamber of death's call. I will put this revelation in my bag of tools when I teach or have the opportunity to pray her or with these lovely ladies.
Again, please receive my thanks and joy over your gifts and for sharing them with us. I have SO much appreciation coming from my spirit for you. My soul and spirit rejoice for the eternal gifts you bring into the natural. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

ResonantBy : Janis Leal On November 15th 2018
This really stirs me up inside, not in an “exciting” flurry type of way, but a deep stirring in my spirit that “knows” there is SO much more in these passages. It also resonates timing-wise in particular, as I have just gone through these very same passages within the past week with my flock at home, during our morning time in the Word. As we delve in, Holy Spirit shows stuff, of course, and in going through these sections recently I once again have that “feeling” by the Spirit that there is far, far more depth here than anyone imagines.
These passages have the same feel to me as the beginning portions of Genesis, and also the whole of Job. They have certain types of kingdom treasures buried underneath that are quite surprising, not at all obvious, and perhaps too easily interpreted or applied “lightly.” And I have “felt” that these same Proverbs passages you mention here don’t get proper justice, as I have “felt” some dissatisfaction in their being commonly seen or interpreted as just surface instruction. They have an immense “echoing,” and your insight and perception on them here is very, very resonant. Really good.
No question about it…. There is MUCH here, and I feel you are definitely on to something, and my spirit is very…. saying “yes,” for lack of a better way to convey it with words. So, my comment is not really adding any insight right now, just joining in, without mental cognition (yet) or any way to articulate what I’m trying to say, other than joining in spirit to say “yes” to the Spirit and to the “knowing” of the treasures that await inside these passages.
Praying into this. As elementary as this may sound, my spirit is “happy” and excited in a “deep” way, and I feel Wisdom is casting a glowing light on this path, with the feel of a radiant smile.
Amazing parallel from my life today to this storyBy : Nathan Noble On November 15th 2018
Prior to reading this blog, I felt the Lord give me a word/series of blessings for a daughter of some good friends of mine this morning (11/15/18) for her birthday that I shared with her mother via email. It came to me somewhat spontaneously but the substance of the word/blessing was about the woman described in Proverbs 8-9 - the path of wisdom. It was a blessing for her to live a life on the seven pillars, a life that calls forth and invites others to the path of wisdom. I'm amazed at the parallels with this word/blessing and the story you relate here. I declare "AMEN" in particular to the sense of the answers you relate from Proverbs 7-9, that there is a deeper principle there that the Lord wants to flush out/tease out/release. May it be so today Father. It is our joy and glory as kings to search this out even as it is Your glory to conceal it.
Death ChamberBy : Chris On November 15th 2018
This scripture came to my remembrance as I read this post,
1 Kings 22:24, 25. Seems relevant to me, in that her "part of the whole" went to find a place to hide and found than it bargained for.
A response within me notedBy : Sheila Kmoch On November 15th 2018
nothing to add, but my spirit reacted to this - knowing that one of the gifts of the Spirit that is evident in me is wisdom - I felt shifting within - perhaps a clue to why the opposite called to me - the foolish; but I prayed "asking Jesus to destroy the chambers of Death in me and to build the house of Wisdom in the strategic place in my brain". And something has happened that is good and release from previously unknown reasons for struggle. So, I thank God for this - even though my mind doesn't understand. I am supposing that revelation will come as God shines His light! He usually does!!!
