Co-Dependency: Is a Demon Involved? 

25 Aug

Yes indeed.  however generally, the demon is in the other person, using HIM  or HER to keep you bound in a demonic soul-tie.  I can break that soul tie by casting it out in the name of the perpetrator who a Demon is using to ensnare you, Yet even so, if all of the issues are not dealt with, that demon will be back in the next man or woman used to keep you bounding demonic soul-tie.

The real issue is co-dependency.  In less than three months of deliverance counseling, Kellie has been set free without any commands to demons needing to be  made. Here is What Kellie learned After a totalof four  months of telephone counseling:


In active telephone counseling with RESCUE because of a devastating romantic co-dependency ,Kellie began telephone counseling with Pastor Pam Sheppard on April 1, 2015, a little over 4 months ago from today. In her own words, Check out the insights she has received. 

It seemed that Kellie’s problem was demonic. It was. But the root to it could not be cast out!

Co-Dependency: The Root of My Captivity by Kellie

Co-dependence is not knowing who you are, what you believe in and what your boundaries are. It is usually bred in childhood by parents who do not give their children the proper care and love they need to develop their authentic self. The child is left fending for themselves and come to believe that they are not worth the time and attention just for being who they are. The child then overcompensates in some way to win the parents approval. Because being who they are isn’t enough, they begin to adopt faulty beliefs that if they were someone different they would eventually win the love of their parents and everything would be alright. A Co-dependent becomes a perfectionist. They strive for perfection because being themselves was never enough. They construct different personalities, ones that are more pleasing than their own. They seek to destroy those parts of themselves that they deem are faulty. Any emotion or feeling that is not acceptable to the parent becomes cut off and a new feeling is taken on. This is called splitting. What in actuality is happening is a layer is being produced that covers their original personality and a false one is implemented to cover the true authentic self. Feelings that are not acceptable to the parent are stuffed down and repressed. A co-dependent will then adopt other feelings to cover those feelings. Shaming from the parent is usually the reason. A parent that cannot accept authentic feelings from a child will shame them into acting a way that is more pleasing to the parent. They cannot deal with what is considered a raw emotion. They seek to manage and fix their child’s emotions to be more comfortable for the parent.  

Co-dependence happens mainly in women. Co-dependence seeks to fix situations and circumstances. It wants to right the wrongs that were done in others because of the wrongs that were really done to the self. The co-dependent grows up not knowing true autonomy because he/she sought so long to win approval of their parents. They do not know where the parent ends and they begin. When a child grows up like this, they will seek out partners that carry the same dynamic because it makes them feel safe. They will look for someone they can “fix.” They will do it believing that if they can just fix the person then they will accomplished what was not fixable in their childhood. This usually comes however from the false selves and not the true self. They use control and manipulation also using these false selves to fix another. They do not understand that it is not authentic and genuine but from a place of fear of failing. They will perpetuate the false self until the person they are trying to fix loves them for who they think they are which is never the real person but really “a house of mirrors.” The real person lies dormant layered in the false selves.

I have been a co-dependent all of my life and I am 50. I sought to fix the wrongs in others, and I did it from a place of fear. I wanted to be loved for who I was and yet I had no idea who that was and what she stood for. I had no idea where my boundaries were, where one person stopped and I began. I let others tell me who that was. I gave up my true identity in my childhood. I was looking for those “others’ whom I could project this onto. It was my own woundedness that I needed to project in an attempt to fix myself and I would repeat this pattern over and over until now. I realize now that every relationship I was in kept leading me to repeat this pattern until I understood that I was trying to fix myself.

This has been a long journey for me but I can say without a doubt that I am becoming myself now. Who I was really but with boundaries. I no longer need to fix, control or manipulate others to be acceptable to others. I have given the real self the permission to be heard and cleansed from needing other’s approval. I don’t need to fix others to be fixed anymore. I can be myself and be acceptable to me and that is enough.

The Habit of Catastrophizing

15 Aug

Catastrophizing is a mental health term. It is an irrational thought a lot of us have in believing that something is far worse than it actually is. Catastrophizing can generally can take two forms.

The first of these is making a catastrophe out of a situation. This kind of Catastrophizing takes a current situation and gives it a truly negative “spin.” For example, my mother assumed that my life was over because I had surgery. Deep down, she hoped that I would not be able to swim again and she thought my life was over. the truth is that my new hip is now the strongest part of my body and I have not an a ounce of pain in it.

The second kind of Catastrophizing is closely linked to the first, but it is more mental and more future oriented.This kind of Catastrophizing occurs when we look to the future and anticipate all the things that are going to go wrong. We then create a reality around those thoughts (e.g. “It’s bound to all go wrong for me…”). Because we believe something will go wrong, the enemy helps us to make it go wrong.

Falling prey to Catastrophizing is often connected to a demon of fear. Both of these types of Catastrophizing limit your opportunities in life, work, relationships and more. It can affect our entire outlook in life, and create a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure, disappointment and underachievement.

Both may lead you to self-pity, to an irrational, negative belief about any situation, and to a feeling of hopelessness about your future prospects. Further, both of these types of Catastrophizing will define either the presence or absence of alternative possibilities, and possibly paralyze you from going further with efforts toward your goals in life.

I am one who always has options and if I can’t find one, I wait on God to create one.

For example,If I was one who catstrophized, RESCUE would not exist. the truth is that I Was a preacher for 25 years who suddenly found herself without a church home. I did not go running to a different denomination even before I received the revelation that the enemy has all pulpits under his belt.

As quiet as I keep it, church experience as a pastor was horrific for me.I don’t even discuss some of the low down things that happened to me as a pastor, at the hands of the sheep. Yet I am I n here, trusting myself to you guys, not worried that any one of you is going to put me down permanently for the count.

Do you catastrophize?

Casting Down Sterotypes!

13 Aug

I have been conducting deliverance counseling sessions over the telephone since 2002 with people from around the world.  Granted, it depends upon what time you call me that you might mistake me for a man when I say, “Hello, RESCUE Fellowship.” I don’t do early morning calls so most people who call recognize that I am a woman.

Recently, I received a call from an African American man.  From his voice, I could ascertain that he was black and that he probably lives in a southern state.  So I answered, “Rescue Fellowship.”  to my shock, he said “oh no.  sorry, I don’t mean to offend you. But you sound way to hard and rough for me.”

I stood silent, not responding to what could have been taken as a huge offense.  He hung up.  However, 15 minutes later, he called back.  Finally, he explained that he believes his former lover—an evil black woman—had put a witchcraft spell on him.  Before  I could say much as he was loud and loquacious— he went on to inform me that he needed me to be soft and feminine and that I sounded too hard and too strong to work with him.

Now technically, I could probably have helped this man but I chose not to because before I could help him, I would have to deal with his gender and racial sterotypes first.  His problem is that he despises strong African-American women. As a consequence, he sterotypes every black woman that does not sound like a mouse as an insensitive, cold, hard, rough  and tough black heifer or as they say in the church, a Jezebel spewing out witchcraft spells. All he needed to be triggered in his prejudices was to hear me say only two words.  so I didn’t say much  on the second call either other than “Get off the phone and go find yourself someone soft enough for you, which is probably a woman of any gender other than an African-American. YOU”VE GOT ISSUES!!!!!”

I have uncovered that a  hidden motive of Satan using sterotypes is to negatively affect his victim’s self evaluation.  As for me, my voice is an asset to the work as people are not looking for a timid person to confront demons on their behalf. I am bold and bodacious in the spirit and I don’t take abuse from anyone, alive, dead or in the spirit world.  I have been described by my clients as having a voice of authority. I don’t fit the stereotype that as a big black woman, I can sing.  No. I croak!  However, the demons have been known to tremble at the sound of  my voice, primarily because they can tell that I believe in the power and the name of Jesus Christ of Nazaereth. My authority with demons has nothing to do with my race or my gender.  it’s my calling.

Therefore, I do not expect to be pleasing to everyone or that everyone will respond well to my style of deliverance.  With this in mind, without much effort, I pay little attention to what people think of me—positive as well as negative.   Long ago, I came to terms with the fact that I am not going to be pleasing to but a select few. So I don’t allow the expectations of others to cause me to lose sleep or to negatively affect my self esteem. I take no thought about it.  Why?  Because the next person WILL be calling me and that is a person that will welcome who I am and what I do, without prejudicial Sterotypes.  I am not like any one else and I don’t try to be. I am fine with just being me.

Yet some of my clients allow their own self-Sterotypes to be negatively formed and strengthened by the likes and dislikes, opinions and expectations of others, either people who are close to them or even perfect strangers. At this point in my life, my self-concept is too intact, too strong to be ransacked by others to my detriment. I too quickly shake the dust for that.  if you try to take me down, I don’t stick around for debate.

Yet I have an advantage over the average person.  Retired, I don’t have to look for jobs. As a result, I don’t have to depend upon clients for my income.  Those who are different from the norm are forced by circumstances to endure other people’s sterotypes on a daily basis. Those who are in the job market deal with abuses and prejudices  that I no longer have to concern myself with. Unlike some of you, I don’t have the office clique to find favor with.  The pressure of getting people to accept me is no longer a burden.   I can be my rough and tough black self any time I want! LOL

Yet I am still concerned about your struggle as I have been there and done that.  What we must continue to do in a world that rejects the Lord is to cast down imaginations and thoughts, bringing them into captivity to the obedience of Christ.  His obedience is “you be you and I will be me.” if you are in Christ, you are okay with Him and if you are not, the Holy Spirit will make every adjustment necessary. So do not allow sterotypes of others or  those of your own making to overpower you by causing you to be what they want or what YOu want both of which are not WHO you REALLY are!!!


“Casting Down Imaginations By Receiving Truth” by Tee

10 Aug

“Casting Down Imaginations by Receiving Truth is the VERY FIRST step in Deliverance. It is very important for the captive to let go of false beliefs, and begin to digest the truth about their captivity. This is VERY difficult to do. Many of the beliefs that people hold near and dear to their hearts are NOT TRUTH, and are LIES FROM THE ENEMY that have them bound in the first place. This is the PRIMARY way a person is held captive…THROUGH RELIGIOUS BELIEFS THAT ARE NOT BASED ON THE TRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. During this step, it is the deliverance mentor’s job to help the captive denounce these false beliefs by providing them with information that will shed light on the TRUTH of the matter. It is then the captive’s responsibility to either accept or reject the truth. This is not an easy feat with many who contact us for deliverance. Religious pride often rears it’s ugly head, and blocks the captive’s ability to move forward with this very important step. This is because the captive is in bondage to common religious beliefs that they automatically assume are truths from God. Most people are VERY naive to the enemy’s crafty wiles and strategies to keep people deceived and in torment. It is very difficult to help people to see that much of what they believe as truth is a flat out lie from the enemy.

Quite often, we come across folks who are just unwilling to accept the fact that what they believe is actually not from God, and that they have been tricked into believing religious lies from the devil. When something has been a part of your life and taught to you for so many years of your life, it is very difficult to let it go, and can be uncomfortable at first. But, I assure you that the results FAR outweigh the struggle. But, in order to get beyond the struggle and progress to the next step, one MUST begin to develop the will it takes to receive the TRUTH by first recognizing the lies they thought were truth, by trusting in the Lord to undeceive them so they can begin to see the truth, and finally, by courageously make a firm decision to DENY those false religious beliefs. Then and only then will person be in the position to attempt to identify strongholds the enemy has in their life, and then as a result be able to successfully tear down those strongholds. Honestly, it requires an open mind, because the truth seems foreign at first; but the more a person is willing to humbly receive truth, the more he/she will begin to see more and more revelations of truth.

When I was being undeceived, I was utterly shocked at what the Holy Spirit was showing me. And then I went through a period of constant revelations, back to back, just opening my eyes even wider. For someone who has been raised in religion, my morals, values, and decisions where shaped by false religious beliefs. When I learned the truth, I had the decision of either rejecting the truth and traveling down the comfortable road by continuing to uphold my religious beliefs, OR by considering the fact that maybe, just maybe many of the beliefs I had developed over the years may actually be based on religious lies. I chose the latter. And I am quite pleased that I did. The blinders have been removed! I once was blind, but now I SEE!


Pam Sheppard has written on this subject and sheds great insight on examining the work of religious demons, their deceptive tactics, and eventual oppression of sincere church-goers, in her book called “Faces Of The Religious Demon”.

They Understood Salvation  and the Call in 1689

6 Aug

The statement written below is included in an astounding document written in 1689. It is an excerpt from the Baptist Confession of Faith in 1689.  Recently I published a video above where one of the main topics is “the call.” I see no difference between what I believe and this excerpt. The document in its entirety is yet additional evidence that the church age of Philidelphia began with the Protestant Reformation and continued until 1901 when Pentecostalism was introduced to the world.  I believe that a significant problem in the church age of Laodicea is that we. Lost our understanding of “the call.”  Pin the statement below, this what the church age of Philadelphia believed concerning this most important subject: 

Effectual Calling

1. Those whom God has predestinated to life, He is pleased in His appointed and accepted time to effectually call by His Word and Spirit, out of that state of sin and death which they are in by nature, to grace and salvation by Jesus Christ. He enlightens their minds spiritually and savingly to understand the things of God. He takes away their heart of stone and gives to them a heart of flesh. He renews their wills, and by His almighty power, causes them to desire and pursue that which is good. He effectually draws them to Jesus Christ, yet in such a way that they come absolutely freely, being made willing by His grace.

2. This effectual call is of God’s free and special grace alone, not on account of anything at all foreseen in man. It is not made because of any power or agency in the creature who is wholly passive in the matter. Man is dead in sins and trespasses until quickened and renewed by the Holy Spirit. By this he is enabled to answer the call, and to embrace the grace offered and conveyed by it. This enabling power is no less power than that which raised up Christ from the dead.

3. Infants dying in infancy are regenerated and saved by Christ through the Spirit, Who works when, where, and how He pleases. So also are all elect persons who are incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the Word.

4. Others are not elected, although they may be called by the ministry of the Word, and may experience some common operations of the Spirit, yet because they are not effectually drawn by the Father, they will not and cannot truly come to Christ and therefore cannot be saved. Much less can men who do not embrace the Christian religion be saved, however diligent they may be to frame their lives according to the light of nature and the requirements of the religion they profess.
