Why Catholics And Other Cults Cannot Try the Spirits

28 Jun

  By Pam Sheppard of RESCUE ONLINE MINISTRIES

Those who are spiritually blind are not able  to  discern  real  fruit  for  God,  for  fruit  can  only  be confirmed by a close association over a long period of time, for fruit must stand both the test of trial and the  test  of time.  Therefore, Jesus revealed in several of His messages that   you   cannot   produce   good   fruit   within   a   corrupt system.(Matt  7:17,  Matt  12:33)  Catholicism is not only the mother of the entire Institutional Church but she is also the first and the largest cult.  In  His  parable  concerning the  mustard  seed  that  grew  into  a  huge  tree,  where the birds  of  the  air  that  came  and  lodged  in  its  branches,  the birds  are  symbolic  of  demons.(Matt  13:31-33) The trunk of the tree is Catholicism. 

    So  since Jesus  knew  that  the  church  would  form  but  that  she would progressively  be  corrupted  by Catholicism,   “the  branches”  or  the many denominations,  cults  and  sects,  The Lord  certainly  knew  that  His Father planned to send “strong delusion.”  (II Tim:2:11) Actually,      II   Thessalonians   Chapter   2      plainly describes  the  delusion  .    Paul  warned  the  elect  that  there would come a day when God would send His people  such a strong delusion, that they would believe a lie.  When?  Well, Paul  indicated  in  his  letter  that  the  mystery  of  iniquity  had already  begun  to  work.      Why?  Because  the  people  do not have  a  love  of  the  truth. My knowledge of Catholicism is limited.  Yet I can wade through the upscale religiosity to some basic facts. 

  To  Timothy,  Paul  confided that some  shall  give  heed  to  seducing  spirits.  (I  Tim:4:1)  How soon?    I  suppose  as  soon  as  the  first  denomination was formed.  Catholicism first, then  the  short-lived reformation of   Protestantism,   followed   by   the   many,   many,   many branches.    Accordingly,  the  birds  came  and  devoured the seed.  How long ago? Well, it follows that it was “a long time ago.”    Every  century,  more  seed  was  devoured  and  the interpretation  of  the  word  of  God  was  filled  with  error  and the church was contaminated.  So  to protect His people,  we pray,  “Lead  me  not  into  temptation  but  deliver  me  from evil.”  Where is evil?  Evil is in the godless world system and evil is built into    Catholicism and all other cults that blaspheme the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.   Satan rules BOTH worlds.

 Catholic-Lit-Candles-CeremonyEvery  belief and practice   connected  with  sorcery  is  an  open invitation to the powers of darkness.  Roman Catholicism strongly believes in and practices the worship of dead saints.  This is necromancy, a form of witchcraft, along with any cultic practices of ancestor worship. Jesus said if the tree is evil, than the fruits shall be evil. Catholics believe and teach the lie that Mary never died, that she remained a virgin throughout her life even though history reports that she conceived  children with her husband, Joseph.

Expecting power and miracles  by blessing water and calling it “holy, medals, pictures, statues, and objects blessed by a priest is simply witchcraft. Even worst, Catholicism has departed from the gospel of grace by adding additional requirements to salvation, including baptism, church membership, the sacraments, obeying the commandments, good works and the mass as necessary to be saved. This is another gospel. Catholics teach that right standing with God can be obtained by what they do, rather than what the Lord has already done at the cross.

Consequently, Catholics and  similar cults are bound by strong delusion. 

So how can they effectively  try the spirits to see if they be of God?  Well, they cannot.

So if  the imposter, the fallen angel Jesus Sananda Immanuel or the one who calls himself Mother Mary  are taking turns appearing to you in visions, and  if you are having out-of-body experiences and signs and wonders like the stigmata in your hands, the only way that you can try the spirits is to count every supernatural vision or astral travel experience  as devilish.  All of it.  Stop the fasting and the prayer, stop praying to Mary with rosaries, stop all things Catholic or cultish.

You may need some help pulling yourself out of this apostate system.  To stop going to church is not enough. Cultism has made a home in your soul and you may need deliverance.

Why Charismatics and Pentecostals Can’t Try the Spirits

What I perceive among Charismatics and Pentecostals is a strange epidemic that I did not perceive to be in control in the Denominations – a kind of contagious disease – spreading itself among gullible people and rendering them incapable of commonsense, objectivity and intelligent thought. Those who have embraced this delusion seem totally unaware of the irrationalism that grips them. They are mesmerized by a counterfeit, false power. What do I say about such people? Well, I perceive that they are intoxicated- that like drunkards, they are “under the influence” of a STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a LIE …” (2 Thessalonians. 2:11)

I was once of a similar mindset. How did I come out of it? Well, I said a little, but powerful prayer.  I said “Lord., expose the darkness that is around me.”  That prayer actually is very similar to the Lord’s prayer.  Lead me not into temptation but deliver me from evil or “the evil one.”

 My prayer was powerful because of my doubts. The year was 2002. I became skeptical of the Charismatic Movement because  I had recently discovered that a tongue-talking believer who also prophesied and discerned demons was full of them herself and  also, that she was not born again. .  Then again, I had not completely lost my commonsense. Logically speaking, I wondered “how many other Charismatics and Pentecostals, including myself, were also demonized and living under strong delusion?”

  The answer to this question is astounding.  Millions upon millions, maybe more.

Here is my main point in a nutshell.  If you are a Charismatic or a Pentecostal, or  one who seeks signs and wonders and who also  claims that you walk comfortably in the realm of the supernatural, then  the only way you can try the spirits is to assume that EVERY supernatural experience that you have ever experienced was demonically instigated and inspired.  Throw it all in the garbage and count it as dung!!! If the Holy Spirit was the source of any of these experience, He will bring it to light.

This is what I did to become un-deceived.  I left nothing unexamined, not even my salvation experience as it too was very supernatural. Here is what you need to know.

fb_891. God resists the proud but He gives grace to the humble. You  must learn your weak points including every area of vulnerability.  You will need to swallow your pride and come to terms with the fact that a religious demon is assigned to you and he knows your weaknesses better than YOU know them.  Quite frankly, he has been having loads of fun laughing at you. When you look back, you need to come to terms with what was it about you that caused you to fall into the enemy’s trap. For if you don’t do a complete self-examination, the seducing spirits will regain his territory in you. A part of your humility needs to be a realization that you must always be vigilant and on guard for attacks that come through people and things around you, or from your own flesh.

2.  We are living in the church age of Laodicea. Laodicea is a spiritually arrogant age.  Here are the words of a RESCUE member, a former Charismatic that definitely ring true as to why Pentecostals and Charismatics cannot try the spirits:

I just realized a common theme in the Charismatic belief system – at least it has been in my entire life. You can never be satisfied or at peace with your life, because there is always supposed to be MORE. However much money you make, you’re supposed to have more. Whatever your ministry is, it’s supposed to be bigger. You’re never healthy enough, happy enough, spiritual enough, anything enough.

I’m realizing, all my life, all I wanted was to be at peace with & enjoy my life, but I couldn’t, because  the charismatic  belief system was ingrained too deeply. It was called being “complacent” or “lukewarm,” or “placing limits on God.” Now that I’m unlearning a lot of these things, I’m actually feeling more satisfied with my life & at peace than was ever possible before. It’s like they’d have you think you should be happier because  of believing in all these “promises,” but the opposite is true.

Trying to undeceive  signs and wonders seekers who assume their supernatural experiences ALL came from God is impossible to man, like trying to put a camel through the eye of a needle.  But all things are possible with God.  If you are such a person, the reason why it is impossible to man is because of your spiritual  arrogance and pride. You will have to come to terms with the fact that the enemy has successfully enacted a scam on you. This scam has cost you thousands  of your hard-earned tithes.  A religious demon said “thus saith the Lord” and you believed him.  Consequently,  the enemy is laughing at you. 

Can you deal with this kind of mockery?  I did.  Wherever the Lord exposed the enemy, I was done. I spoke in tongues for 25 years.  That is over.  Done. I founded a church based on Charismatic doctrine and principles.  Pastored it for 12 years.  Its done.  Closed. I could go on and on. 

I paid the price to be undeceived.  You will have to do the same.
