Endtime Ministers and Spiritual Covering

7 Jan

 

Spiritual covering! Have you heard about it? Do you need it ?  What is spiritual covering? Are you one of those who were sent…or are you one of those who just went, minus a spiritual covering? Whose your spiritual daddy? Whose your spiritual Mama? What about an apostolic covering, do you have one of those? Please don’t answer, because there’s no such thing as a spiritual covering.

The Spiritual Covering Fallacy

Charismatic churches, and churches in general, seemed to have latched on to yet another fallacy, yet another  unscriptural doctrine of demons. The laying on of hands is not something to be toyed with. Didn’t the apostle Paul say we are to touch no man suddenly? So why is the organized church, scampering about, in a hurry to lay hands on those they say they are about to launch into ministry? Why would a spiritual Papa or a spiritual Mama need to lauch you out to tell people about Jesus? Jesus said to spread the Gospel to the nations. Jesus never said we were to wait on a spiritual father or mother for permission.

Since when do we need a permission slip to share our testimony, or share the Gospel? The notion that ones needs a spiritual covering, sounds like demonic controls to me. Sounds like manipulations akin to witchcraft to me. What about you? So then the Gospel that calls us by our faith, to share the message of Christ has been twisted yet again.

All of a sudden, you have to wait for approval, for something Christ already said we should do. You better not go, unless you were sent. Sent by who? Sent by someone who wishes you to submit to them, rather than submit to God. The spiritual covering doctrine is responsible for a myriad of criminal behaviors in church. Wasn’t it a spiritual Daddy who was accused of some heinous acts? Do you know the story? Even if you don’t, our father is God.

We don’t want to go the other extreme into lone rangerhood either. We don’t want to be off in a corner by ourselves, refusing authority and teachings which are God sent. Spiritual coverings are unscriptural, but so is being a lone ranger  who refuses correction. Were there any lone disciples in the New Testament? Did God ever say that a time would come when disciples would stand alone to be taught, solely by him?
Some people, are sure that the organized church is the ” Her” spoken of in Revelations 18:4. Some people agree with the Sheppard’s Publishing stance. Sheppard’s Publishing views the organized church as the harlot we must all exodus from. Unfortunately, those who agree, agree only to a point. They  fall into error, by believing that God will now speak directly to them. The lone ranger pastor has lost his way, and is headed for deep deception.
I am  an independent endtime minister yet I am no lone ranger. In fact,  I am guided, supported, mentored, equipped and trained  by Pam Sheppard Ministries.  I submit to this ministry in love because a relationship of trust has been established.  No one tries to “rule” over me, nor am I required to give tithes and offerings to be a disciple. In fact, I am sent monthly donations for any service I render. I have the power to question PSM in doctrine and in practice. Yes,  I am free to come and go as the Lord leads ME without anyone’s “permission”, knowing that Pam Sheppard Ministries has  my back. Pam Sheppard, an ordained minister for 30 years— treats her ministerial associates as equals, regardless of age, spiritual maturity or background.  No authoritarian abuse with her. I provide accountability without being asked or required.
A back-up of love is a precious pearl in the Body of Christ.. An affiliation with Pam Sheppard Ministries has broken my bondage  of trying to serve the Lord under abusive authoritarian leaders. If the Lord has called you to a ministry outside of church walls, you will not be able to find a more understanding yet powerful ministry for this season.

Be Set Free From Apostolic Teaching

7 Jan

 by Ola Cruz

The Apostolic doctrine teaches that Christ can’t return to earth until Christians form a militant army which will be led by “ Super Apostles”. These super apostles and prophets are supposedly going to physically subdue the earth and set up God’s kingdom within the earth’s government. Bishop Bill Hamon and Peter Wagner have concocted these hair brained apostolic doctrinal errors and teachings of devils. Those who push this apostolic doctrine believe that God’s end-time army will arise, subdue the earth, bring on natural disasters with their super powers, and correct church government. They claim to have authority over pastors and churches and want to be recognized as such.

Everything they teach is unscriptural and pompous. Their pride has them believing that Christ needs them to assist Him in returning to earth. Their pride has them believing that God needs help. As far as I can see, what they are really teaching undermines and diminishes the power of God. In fact, they believe God is powerless without their input. If God is powerless without the input of these super apostles, then the super apostles must be God. What do you say?

If you are part of this apostolic doctrine, you’ve been duped and hoodwinked into placing yourself  ABOVE GOD. The apostolic doctrine is yet another doctrine of the damned. Get out while you can!

I write this article with sorrow. Yesterday, I asked Pam Sheppard about the apostolic doctrine and what it entailed. I see a lot of Facebook folk tooting the apostolic horn and placing the word ” apostle ” in front of their name. Pam gave me two names to research which were Bishop Bill Hamon and Peter Wagner. My friends, I was almost sorry I asked. As far as Pam Sheppard’s Ministries is concerned, God is finished with the organized church, and all Pam’s ministers have ” come out from among them”. Why was I sorry I asked Pam about the apostolic doctrine? I was sorry I asked because as I began to research this damnable apostolic doctrine, I felt like I had entered the devils” doctrinal error twilight zone ” of top-level heresy.

I wouldn’t even advise you to enter that zone and do your own research on the apostolic doctrine. Take it from me, the book you should read is The New Idolatry by Pamela Sheppard. I used to be like you. You may feel fed up with church and you don’t want to give anybody a chance to fool you again. Well, dear reader, the devil is crafty. Take that chance and read the book! I could stop here and give you a 100 point list of why I believe Pam Sheppard IS THE LORD’S END -TIME SHEPHERD But I won’t. You need to check the spirit for yourself. I really would like you to be sure for yourself . Be prepared for the undiluted truth of the Gospel! Go here for your very own copy:
