Your spiritual life is like a journey.  You are on the broad road, and SEW Mentoring   will lead you to the narrow way.  As you journey through the valleys to find your mountaintops, our trained ministers  are with you as a “travel guide” so to speak.  You have become accustomed to travelling alone, and perhaps with out even a map.  You have been walking for a long time and your bondage may have  brought you to a crossroad. 

 The first stage of  basic Christian mentoring is geared toward helping you make your own decisions about how much truth you are willing to receive to obtain freedom. The more you resist truth, the longer you will journey on the broad way, that leads to destruction.

We have found that most Christians who need deliverance mentoring are blinded by spiritual ignorance.  Our goal at SEW is to help you obtain clear spiritual vision as we coach and train you to distinguish between good and evil. 

The goal of basic Christian mentoring  is to help you to be engaged, encouraged and enlightened  in your mind. As such, our objective at  is to strengthen your spirit so that you will be able to recognize God’s will and choose it above your own. 

 However, the goal of deliverance mentoring  is to arm you to recognize and effectively deal with  the activity of the enemy in your life.  Deliverance mentoring is broken down into 4 components:

 A SEARCH FOR COSMIC EVIL DOORWAYS: These are areas  in a person’s life which are giving or have given cosmic entities the right to enter or remain in the person. Asking Jesus to “come into your heart, a counterfeit birth, a background in the occult, unconfessed sins, ungodly soul ties, unforgiveness, holding cursed possessions (occult rings, etc.) and so forth can give demons a right to inhabit and torment a person. These legal grounds can be  removed by facing the truth,  repentance, renunciation, extending forgiveness, etc.

THE EXAMINATION OF STRONGHOLDS: These are basically incorrect thinking patterns in your mind. For example, if  you think God is angry with you because you have committed the unpardonable sin, then you will feel like He is. This stronghold may open you to panic attacks, paranoia  or obsessive compulsive behavior. Strongholds are torn down in each mentoring session  as a trained minister and mentee work together to reprogram your mind to think differently. You might say that the SEW approach to a stronghold is to enhance critical thinking capabilities and simple commonsense. Together the mentor and the mentee destroy the strength of the debilitating thought.

RESTORATION OF YOUR SOUL: Renewal is often required when counseling a person who has been abused, raped or has been exposed to a traumatic experience. Becoming whole  is a work of the Holy Spirit and is received as a captive is  delivered from  the inner hurt and pain from past experiences. Then   the Holy Spirit  comes in and heal those wounds. Forgiveness often plays a part in this releasing process. Oftentimes, self-forgiveness needs to be received as the captive may be   holding things against him or herself which must be released. Once truth is known and accepted, frrdom is obtained.

EXPULSION OF THE ENEMY Confronting  cosmic entities directly  is where either devils or demons are  driven out of the client by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of the Holy Ghost. After success in the first three stages,  expulsion is often un-necessary. However, in various cases, direct confrontation of the powers of darkness cannot be avoided.  At this stage, the client MUST sign and notarize an informed consent form called the DDF, the Deliverance Disclaimer Form. There are no exceptions. 

Dedicated Ministers who themselves were captives  have been trained to conduct mentoring sessions. Visit our page called SEW Ministers to read a brief bio of 7 of them. I recommend that you give SEW mentor a one month trial and you will not be sorry.

The Religious Demon: No Quick Fixes

11 Oct

There are people with religious demons who are tormented either with hearing voices, fears of having committed the unpardonable sin 0r of going to hell  as well constantly are bombarded by blasphemous thoughts. Some can’t even read their bibles out loud or silently. I recall a case where a captive could only read a pocket bible for fear that a demon would use her arm to pound her in the head with a hardcover, and possibly sustain  a concussion.


So it is easy to embrace  a quick-fix  simply to relieve or stop the torment. Most workers  simply attempt to cast out demons  as a means to remove ALL  of a person’s bondages.It never really works. I have found that setting captives free who have a spirit of religiosity  in any form,  involves more than simply driving out the demons.
There are usually various strongholds to be torn down. Since strongholds are incorrect thinking patterns, this is done through the renewing of the captive’s  mind according to the Word of God. As the Lord said “you can’t put new wine into old wineskins or it will break. You can’t put a new patch of cloth on an old garment or it will tear, and you certainly cannot serve 2 masters, or you will hate the deliverance worker and love the preachers and teachers who are a signifant yet hidden cause of your captivity.

The purpose of deliverance is to gain freedom from any hindrances in your life that would keep you from walking in the fullness of God’s plan for your life and your relationship with Him. Remarkably to some, it is often habitual religiosity that is the most difficult stronghold to overcome, even stronger than an addiction to alcohol or drugs because religion and “going to church” isculturally engrained and is therefore considered “the right thing to do.” It takes much time and patience to free captives from religion or a deceptive form of spirituality—a form of godliness that denies the power thereof.

A Deliverance Classic by Pam Sheppard

I cannot work with a “religious captive” who continues to go to church, feed from the tables of either deceived or false prophets, and who is praying to a fake god. Therefore I mandate that while involved in deliverance counseling, coaching  or mentoring with this ministry, the captive must cease and desist from all religious activity including reading the bible and praying. Old things must pass away so that all things can become new.

Deliverance Mentoring

11 Oct

Deliverance ministry was founded in the early seventies once the book “Pigs in the Parlor” was released by   Frank and Ida Hammond. Derek Prince and Peter Wagner were also key players in its development over the last 4 decades. I entered into deliverance in 1983. Here are but a few  of the revelations I have received over the years.

deliverance mentoring

   I have learned that the demons of today KNOW HOW TO MOCK a deliverance session with the manifestations of coughing, rasping, retching, vomiting—pea soup type stuff as seen in the movie, “the Exorcist.”  Much of this is fakery—not on the part of the person in bondage, but the antics of the earthbound demons.  Those who “manifest” in this manner are rarely set free.  In other words, the demons of today are more sophisticated than the ones faced by Jesus and His apostles. These entities have had centuries “to practice” their craft. So their goal is to make a mockery of “casting out of demons”  so as  to defy Jesus Christ by making  the deliverance worker look like an inept fool.

  Earth bound demons can be cast out  by faith in the Name of Jesus Christ of
Nazareth in  5 minutes.  If a deliverance session takes longer than THAT, then
an earth bound demon is NOT involved. It is either a cosmic power—a fallen
angel who is NOT a demon—OR NO DEMON AT ALL.

3. The minister or worker  seeking to help another under the captivity  of evil
spirits, must be prepared for the deceiving spirits misusing to the captive  the
very truth the captive himself desires, and needs for his deliverance.  The
enemy will also misrepresent and attempt to discredit  the minister seeking to
help the captive to freedom.  In other words, if you have a demon—both you and the minister need to be defensively prepared for the fact  that the your resistance to the truth that will be revealed through mentoring.  Your resistance will be inspired by the very
demon who has you in bondage.

 Deliverance mentoring  is a process wherein the captive and the minister join  forces to  systematically confront  the forces of darkness with TRUTH. In deliverance mentoring, mentees are equipped and  taught to  understand the intelligent use of the spiritual weapons   so as to obtain knowledge of the organized hosts of darkness. As such, the mentee is coached on how  to try the spirits by exercising  his or her own spiritual vision so that “by reason of use” it becomes acute in discerning the operations of the enemy in the spiritual sphere. I teach ministers in training how  to observe and learn by observation and practice—

If you are  a captive, it is crucial to your complete recovery to know the methods of the enemy against you,  in his  war against ALL  the people of God.

The Remnant Church of God now needs “leaders” trained in the knowledge
of the enemy’s  world-wide campaigns; ministers able to foresee his “wiles,” and
to guide the rank and file of God’s people into winning the aggressive war against him.

At Sheppard’s Counseling Center,

 we train ministers  to become spiritual leaders=== skilled in the knowledge of the armour, and the weapons of warfare provided in the Word of God, so as to detect any weak places in their use as an intelligent, systematic, aggressive COUNTER-CAMPAIGN AGAINST the enemy of your soul.

.The powers of darkness are keenly clever at working with natural problems by simulating natural conditions either in a client’s personality or disturbance of mental or bodily functions.  They watch
for some physical, emotional, attitudinl or mental dysfunction to serve as a cover or an explanation of their own workings .Casting demons out without dealing with the root cause of the dysfunction may relieve a client from torment, but the relief is only temporary or the enemy will simply strategize by transfering its activity  in another sphere of life.  So a person believes that they are healed
when in essence, the enemy has merely shifted his target.

In terms of strategy, demons are skilled at taking two opposing positions.  In other words, the enemy will purposefully control both sides of any situation, so that the unsuspecting will assume that since one approach is obviously demonic, the opposing option MUST BE GOD, when both approaches and opinions are demonic.  The goal is to control every side of every situation,in order to obscure, deceive and confuse. In this way, the enemy can advance a long term agenda.  Most often, the enemy’s attack is to distract from root causes so as to maintain power and control.

This is why at SCC, we find the root and pull it up! Ministers for mentoring are available.

Training ministers is a priority at SCC.

The words of the old prophet Hosea ring true.  The Lord’s people are definitely  destroyed fora lack of knowledge.   With deliverance counseling,  demons will  often leave on its own accord once they realize that through deliverance counseling,  you have been armed with spiritual truth.  They leave because they sense that your faith has increased to stand against them.  In other cases, demons have been hidden within a person’s personality for so long, that  the Holy Spirit will set up a situation so that the demons will be exposed and come out of hiding.    

At Sheppard’s Counseling Center,  we have been contacted by people from around the country who have sought us to conduct a deliverance.  We have  cast out  demons from someone on another continent by telephone.  What you need to know is that Jesus Christ IS RISEN FROM THE DEAD!For example, He stood with one foot in Australia and One foot in our little town in the USA! He is bigger than life.  He IS life!!!  His Name is Above Every Name. 

The demons not only bowed but  they came  out peaceably without much struggle and the captive has been gloriously set free!!

     If you as a steadfast believer do ALL the work that shall be assigned to you,  if you bite the bullet and withstand the test by fighting your feelings, learning how to cope  with a straightfoward style, believe me—NO ONE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WILL HAVE TO TRAVEL TO NEW YORK FOR A DELIVERANCE SESSION, BECAUSE JESUS IS LORD OVER THE TELEPHONE!!!!! YOU TOO CAN BE COMPLETELY SET FREE!!!!

Pam Sheppard:"On the battlefield for 38 years"


Coaching and training before and after deliverance is extremely important.  Both of these forms of counseling will be conducted by a combination of private fb groups, Skype, email and telephone. Be advised that we will not conduct a deliverance upon anyone without a commitment to pre-deliverance MENTORING.  Post deliverance MENTORING is highly recommended to maintain a lasting  and continued freedom.

          You may need  deliverance if the following applies to YOU:

You have been held captive and brought under the power of spiritual entities that have caused  you to lose your God given self control.  Even when drug free and not physically addicted, a captive is controlled by an obsessive and compulsive mind that will relive his
addictive/compulsive behavior in his thoughts, keeping alive the experience with the help of memory cells in his body that create physical and mental cravings. Satan and his demons are the unseen forces that send messages to an unsuspecting  mind.

You have assumed  that your  thoughts and feelings are your own but they are not.The enemy has been projecting thoughts into your mind. You may have experienced  powerful urges in your flesh.  Demons choose the weakest time and place to attack, and since your impulsive and compulsive behavior is predictable, it is a simple matter for demons to attract, lure and trap a person into addictive/obsessive/compulsive behavior. 

The following moments, circumstances  and  or places of weakness may have acted  as doorways  to demonic influence that led to your captivity and/or a need for deliverance:

A family and or personal
background in the occult or false religions.
False religions include those
that are assumed to be Christian.
These so called Christian
religions include Catholicism, Jehovah Witness, Christian Science and the Latter
Day Saints. (Mormons)
Family or personal involvement
with the occult or any form of witchcraft.
The occult also includes a
family or personal background in freemasonry.
Pressures in early childhood,
including but not limited to physical or sexual abuse.
Other negative family issues
include rejection and sibling rivalrry.
Sinful Acts or Habits, including
but not limited to the breaking of the 10 Commandments.
Addictions of all kinds.
 You said the sinner’s prayer and asked “Jesus” to come into your heart.Therefore, you have a false conversion which I call “a counterfeit birth.”
