Beware! Seducing Spirits Can PREACH!

16 Jun

By Pam Sheppard

I am not the only one who knows the dangers of inducing an altered state. I found the following statement in a book called “Knowing the Facts about the ASC”. By John Ankerberg and John Weldon:

There are no indications in Scripture that people should enter altered states or trances in order to draw closer to God, a common theme in New Age circles. According to 1 Peter 4: 7 (and other Scriptures), Christians are to be “clear minded and self-controlled” so that they may pray or study Scripture. Thus, the biblical means of spiritual growth and sanctification, e.g. meditation on Scripture, prayer, fasting, “are surely not meant to put us into altered states of consciousness” (2659: 79). Further, as we have argued all along, these states are clearly open doors to the intrusion of demonic spirits.”

THE ALTERED STATE AND THE DENOMINATIONS

I have written extensively about the altered state and the Charismatics. Yet even though the denominational side is different, it  can be equally dangerous.  Over the last few centuries in the US, particularly the southern bible belt  and the migration of Southerners to the north, pagan belief systems and practices got mixed into church dogma for several decades. .  For example, in 1979, I joined a denominational church where the members  not only frequented   root workers to deal with the vicissitudes of life,  the founding pastor, a native  Caribbean, was also a practicing Obeah warlock.  Consequently,  witchcraft influences coupled with the fact that most denominational pastors and ministers are also active members of a freemasonry lodge, denominational doorways to Satan are less obvious to pinpoint. Add to this mix the Hispanic influence on religion via the practice of Santeria as well as the pervasive  mysticism of Catholicism, and denominational paganism, the denominational religious experience may even equal or surpass the pagan power of the Charismatic Movement.

I have found that the affinity for repetition and the stirring up of emotional outbursts, is the denominational doorway  to the altered state.  Personally speaking,  I have seen preachers who hoop their message have the charismatic capability of transforming  a quiet, sedate  congregation to enter an emotional frenzy through provoking an ASC. Under the influence of the beat of the music and specific keywords within the lyrics, I have witnessed people literally ” go off”, when a soloist or a lead choir singer repeats Jesus over and over again. It goes from Jesus to JEAH, and then congregants start to literally fall out on or over the back of the pew or jump up into the aisle and do what is called the holy dance.  Women dressed with fashionable hats,  designer suits and high heels find themselves disheveled, hat and shoes knocked off, rolling around on the church rug. If you ask any of  them to give a summary of the sermon, you will undoubtedly find that they cannot remember, as their minds went blank. Simply put, they were in the grips of an altered state of consciousness.

Now the denominational side is different but can be equally dangerous. How does one get into an altered state within a denominational church? Well, one of the ways is through repetition. There is a lot of repetition in traditional denominational worship services. I studied hypnosis decades ago. A part of putting a person into a trance involves repetition and visualization. Think of the songs. Many of them are hypnotic. Check out various preaching styles. When the preacher uses a repetitive cadence, it can cause people to enter an altered state. Repetition coupled with a hypnotic cadence can lead to the stirring up of emotional outbursts. For example,  I have seen preachers who hoop their message,  cause  a quiet congregation to suddenly erupt  into an emotional frenzy that provoked an ASC. I have seen people go off, when a soloist or a lead choir singer repeats Jesus over and over again. It goes from Jesus to JEAH, and then attendees start to literally fall out or jump up and do what is called the holy dance. You ask them to give a summary of the sermon and they cannot as their minds have gone blank.

Furthermore, the authors also warn about the influences and effects of paganism upon the modern world:

Altered states also have important commonalities. They can all impair one’s ability to test reality, to think critically and logically or to remember. They create a passive state in which mental events seem to develop on their own and are simply experienced rather that being controlled. Many also weaken emotional restraints, allowing moods to swing from wild jubilation to deep fear and depression. In addition, they can all create perceptual distortions and hallucinations and precipitate unusual bodily sensations like numbness, dizziness, tingling or rushes of energy…. They can make people hypersuggestible, so they are open to many strange beliefs and are easily influenced by the suggestions of other people. Altered states have the singular ability to make all kinds of improbable events seem exceptionally real and significant…. One final effect of altered states is their apparent ability to facilitate or enhance mystical experience … (2659: 69-70).

In conclusion, to develop ASCs is not to participate in a form of higher consciousness or true spirituality, as New Age proponents would have us believe. Rather, it often involves abnormal, regressive states of consciousness—ones particularly conducive to demonic contact and manipulation. The radical change in worldview is characteristically toward the occult, encouraging both occult practices and occult philosophy. The growing acceptance of altered states by millions of people, their use in psychotherapy, medicine, education, and many other fields is a reflection of the growing influence of paganism in our society. (Ankerberg and Weldon)

As evidenced and confirmed by my own experience with the occult back in the mid 70’s, I discovered by practicing the altered state through self-hypnosis and meditation, I opened a path of communication between myself and seducing spirits. I did not know this at the time as the spirits identified themselves as people I knew who had died– those whom I liked and wanted to communicate with. Then a sequence of events started to evolve in both the content and style of the communications, aka channeling. Through automatic writing, I received religious messages pertaining to both Hinduism and Buddhism. Since I was an atheist, I was neither interested or impressed with these prolific religious teachings. In those days, I simply wanted to know my future more than anything else.

My point is that evil spirits need the altered state in order to directly communicate with us. If you are not actively trying to enter an altered state through purposeful practice, YOU CAN ALSO ENTER AN ALTERED STATE TODAY THROUGH VARIOUS FORMS OF CHRISTIAN WORSHIP LIKE PREACHING OR SINGING. . The most obvious practices are tongues as a prayer language , fire tunnels, slain in the spirit, various forms of wild intercession prayer, even some deliverance ministry practices. Yet for the sake of this article, I focus on the art of PREACHING, particularly among the denominations, especially the Baptists, the Pentecostals and ever increasingly, the Methodists.

PREACHING AND AN ASC

The last time I went to church, I had a memorable experience. This denomination had removed my name off the rolls in June 2004. Therefore, I did not know why I was returning to a place the Lord revealed that I must leave  in order to be used by Him. Yet somehow, I knew in my spirit that I had the Lord’s permission.  As I write this, I realize that God sent me back to the denomination for the last time, to be tempted by the devil.   I was aware that  the churches  in the Northeast had recently been assigned a  different bishop so I decided to visit the conference. IT WAS JULY23, 2008, a Wednesday afternoon.So I said to myself, “I will just sell some books.” The Fake Jesus had just been published so I brought some paperbacks with me to sell.  The denomination’s annual conference was being held just a short distance from my home. I had an inner leading to attend.

I thought I was walking in on the business meeting but the new bishop had changed the programming. I actually  walked in on a sermon.

Looking around, I observed that very few was paying any attention to the preacher, a man I knew well. Yet the Rev. seemed to be preaching directly at me but he did not even know I was there. I felt something grab me in the chest. This “force” was trying to make me respond to the invitation, come from the back and walk down that long aisle. They would think that I was returning to them. Or that I was repenting or something. I did not want to do it but it was like hands were pushing me in the back, I gave in and walked that aisle. The music was playing loudly, there were about 10 ministers and the Bishop behind the altar rail. I was in a TRANCE!!! I SNAPPED OUT OF IT WHEN I WAS ASKED “ARE YOU BRINGING YOUR MINISTRY BACK UNDER US? I CAME TO MYSELF AND HOLLERED OUT. NO!!! I JUST LOVED THE SERMON!

Actually Rev. Washington seemed to be preaching directly at me but he did not even know I was there. I paid particular attention to him  because Rev. Washington was actually the only minister out of 100 of them  who called to support me within a few days after they removed my name from the rolls under the guise that I did not pay my annual dues of $660.  He informed me  that in 3 months, I could be re-instated.

So as Rev. Washington was preaching, I felt something grab me in the chest. This “force” was trying to make me respond to the invitation, come from the back and walk down that long aisle. They would think that I was returning to them. Or that I was repenting or something. I did not want to do it but it was like hands were pushing me in the back, I gave in and walked that aisle. The music was playing loudly, there were about 10 ministers and the Bishop behind the altar rail. I was in a TRANCE!!! I SNAPPED OUT OF IT WHEN I WAS ASKED “ARE YOU BRINGING YOUR MINISTRY BACK UNDER US? I CAME TO MYSELF AND HOLLERED OUT. NO!!! I JUST LOVED THE SERMON!

Two days later, the Lord explained what happened to me. IT WAS THE PREACHING THAT PUT ME INTO AN ASC. AS TO THE PRESSURE I WAS FEELING IN MY CHEST, THE PUSH ON MY BACK, THE LORD SPOKE AND SAID. “IT WAS NOT ME.” I KNEW IT WASNT ME. SO IT WAS SIMPLE TO FIGURE OUT THAT IT WAS A SEDUCING SPIRIT AKA A RELIGIOUS EVIL SPIRIT OR DEMON.

When THE HOLY SPIRIT made The next statement, I was literally SHOCKED.. He said, the 3 dreams that you had in 1979 that led you to that church and to that denomination “did not come from ME. I NEVER SENT YOU THERE. NEXT He said, “that same power that came on you that Sunday in September, 1979, which fell on you and brought YOU to your knees, causing you to groan, wail and weep, IS THAT SAME SPIRIT THAT CAME ON YOU 2 DAYS AGO!!! Both times, IT WAS NOT ME!!!!!

SO DON’T SLEEP ON THE DENOMINATIONS. The preaching coupled with the emotional worship of the flesh, can also induce an altered state of consciousness and put you in contact with religious demons!!!!!

In conclusion, this particular experience with its subsequent revelations caused me to humble myself and ask God if I was called to ministry. For I recalled yet a similar experience that had occurred in that very church on the day that I responded to the call to ministry in the summer of ’81. At that time, A power DID come on me. A joyous power! The difference is that it was not sudden. Actually for months, I had received at least 10 signs that clearly revealed that I am one of God’s anointed workers. In more than one of those signs, I was called a prophet when I did not even know what a prophet was.

The Holy Spirit answered my question basically out of the scripture. In other words, look at the fruit. Even though He called me while I was in the denomination, He did not send me there as I had believed for 25 years.  –I was  not to minister to them, or for them or under their religious authority. In fact, the Holy Spirit only revealed my ministry FOR CHRIST UNTIL AFTER I HAD LEFT THEM!!!!

We must try all things.

Demonized or Sent Crazy in a Church Service or Crusade

1 Jun

By Pastor Pam Sheppard


fb_80

I don’t make it a practice to call out ministries and prophets by name. Making it clear, I would love to fully expose them. The problem is that people miss the reason for the exposure, and if they are a fan, they will get caught up in defending both the minister and his or her ministry rather than “listen to reason.” Having been there and done that,  I refuse to get distracted by engaging in  online defensive arguments and contentions.

The reality is that   for every known mega false teaching and practice, there are hundreds or even thousands of unknown  ministries who continue to  mimic the famous.  These unknown ministries  collectively, are influencing untold numbers of innocent, ignorant people. So my goal is to bring my readers  the truth  without identifying individuals so that you can recognize game not only  among  the famous but also among the unknown.

After serving in ministry for 25 years within a denomination, the Lord led me out of all religious systems in 2004 and I have not looked back. So for the last 14 years, I only learn about what the church  is doing from demonized captives who seek my help. Recently I was contacted by a captive who I will re-name  “Helen.”

Helen became intrigued by a ministry where the leader claims that those who heed his doctrine will have a face to face contact with Jesus. The “pastor” who I will refer to as “Simon” after the biblical Simon the Sorcerer boasts on his website that his ministry is  the Greatest Move of God to hit the face of the Earth!.With more than 1,800 churches and thousands on the worldwide volunteer staff, Apostle Simon the Sorcerer continues to hold miracle crusades, and claims to preach and teach  the complete and unadulterated Word of God everywhere!” He is also big on slain in the spirit.  He can wave his hand and the entire congregation will fall.  Someone in his crusade took a picture and an image was photographed whom he and his followers claim to be Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

So Helen, who already has a predisposition in her flesh that draws her to anything and everything supernatural, immediately became sold out for Simon’s ministry, especially since his main headquarters is located within walking distance of her apartment. She thought to herself “What a blessing!!! In her own words:

I went to the those events because of Simon’s book, Face to Face Appearances With Jesus. The book talked about this love affair he had with Jesus, how he would fall asleep and Jesus would appear to him in his sleep, what Jesus looked like and how  Jesus took Simon to Heaven and told him things no one else knew and how Jesus had so much love for him and so many other wonderful things. I personally wanted a face to face with Jesus as I always have been attracted to Him since a child. So the way Simon portrayed the Lord in this book lured me into his ministry, tooth, nail and sinker. When Simon’s  book came out there were other books of other authors who claimed they had visitations from Jesus also. For that reason, I thought  that Simon’s book must be legitimate.

At the the crusades, I felt this tremendous power. Actually, it was nothing like I ever felt before. Therefore, I just knew God was with the man Simon because of the power and electricity I could feel in his worship services. Today I know it was all just the powers of fallen angels who were creating that power and that it was not from God.

So what happened that caused Helen to realize she had been duped? In a nut shell, two fallen angels began playing “good cop/bad cop” with her. It was probably one fallen angel playing both roles.

The “GOOD” ANGEL

All of the sudden I received a few Jesus dreams. I remember one was where it was Jesus with a crowd of people around him and I was standing next to him and I was like wow all of the these people are trying to get to Jesus, but He wants ME! So when Jesus put his arm around me I felt so important and loved. I remember another one was where Jesus was riding on a big eagle over a mountain and saying he was coming back and I was in awe because in the dream it seemed so real. One dream I had is where I was walking down my old block and I heard a voice from the sky say I love you and that he was coming back.

THE “BAD” ANGEL

After they stopped playing God, they became cold towards me, when I say playing God they use to sing about the rapture and Jesus coming back and it sounded so beautiful like it were men and women angels singing. It was a male voice that would sing and say that the Holy Spirit was with me now. Its like they were trying to act like God and point out certain sings I had and they were saying I wasnt going to Heaven because of such and such and that I wouldnt be taken in the rapture.

When the torment started, I remember during the day they would threaten me about choking me in my sleep at night. I was in mental torment because they could read my mind about what I was thinking and they would interfere with normal every day things like watching tv. Its like at every little turn they had to comment or joke about something I did.

I remember they would get on me about talking back to them saying I shouldnt talk to demons but it was hard not to because they were trying to hold conversations with me. It was very hard to concentrate on things on cleaning. I was just so upset and depressed because I realized the voices were not going away and that it was real.

They could make there voices even appear like it was coming from a fan or inside a washer at the laundrymat and they would be so loud and noisy that it was scary at times. I had severe panic attacks where I was in and out of the emergency room because of breathing problems. It turned out to be panic attacks. I was prescribed me ativan to calm me down. I ended up having to be prescribed panic attack medication, although I dont take that anymore.

I was always tired because I barely got any sleep because I lost my ability to sleep well at night. The anguish of just lying in bed and not be able to fall asleep was so debilitating. When I did fall asleep, I was takin out of my body and choked. What bothered me the most was they kept saying Luicfer is calling your name,girl, Lucifer is calling your name, Girl! I wondered, “Why is Satan calling MY name!!!

Much of the time, these spirits would sing sing sing, until they couldn’t sing no more. They love to sing little rhymes and riddles, I remember thinking the music they are making sounds like rap music or something off of the radio. I just kept thinking “when will they shut up and stop talking to me and give peace?”

They also knew how to lie, like I remember one time they kept saying “we are searching your mind to see if there are any defects in your brain to see why I kept believing the demons. I always believed them when they told me I wasn’t going to Heaven. I remember this one time they were cursing the Holy Spirit and they said I had cursed the Holy Spirit in my  mind and they kept teasing me and taunting me, that I ended up saying I didn’t curse the F***in Holy Spirit. Once I sis that, then they told me I had committed the unpardonable sin. I was in awe IOU’s anguish over that for awhile.

I remember I had so much fear about falling asleep and in the visions or dreams or whatever they were, I remember feeling so helpless as they continued to choke me. I had no power to fight them off and so I wondered where was Jesus to come and help  me? In the dreams It was always sad, or bad memories I had but in a distorted way and the dreams never made sense. I was just so unhappy because I couldn’t dream like I use to and I kept blaming myself for going to those miracle healing crusades because I kept thinking I should have stopped once I saw I wasn’t getting healed.

So what happened to Helen? She ended up diagnosed with schizophrenia. The medication blocked out the voices of religious fallen angels, which Helen refers to as the outside or outer voices. Yet she remains in torment from the inner voices. The inner voices tell her daily, 24/7 that she must commit suicide. She sought my help to be delivered in December 2017 but did not have regular phone sessions until February 2018. So for about 4 months, Helen has been re-trained out of “churchianity while simultaneously detoxed from religion. Last week, I conducted a telephone deliverance. I informed Helen that if they were coming out, they would do so within 7 days. Here is Helen’s report, received June 1, 2018, 4 days after the phone session:

Hey Pastor Pam. I am so glad you gave me these affirmations. The demons have been going crazy, I was screaming all over the place. I just knew the demons were going to come out. I have been trying to say them everyday and doing it more than twice. I did put in there that I will never kill myself like you told me to do and the demons go crazy when I say that. Its something how you knew I should say that, that part never crossed my mind.

In the second affirmation where it says I was tricked into worshiping fallen angels and religious demons where it says I renounce prayers offered to the catholic Mary, I switched it with Jesus Sananda Immanuel and then I put in there I renounce the Jesus come into my heart and the sinners prayer where it says I renounce the sinners prayer that I said in 2000 and that made them go crazy.

In the part that says I reject any association with African false gods I put in there kundalini, freemasonry, Buddhism, Hinduism etc and that made them really go crazy. Now at times when I look in the mirror, I see a crying face. like the demon is crying through me, which is weird. The demons have literally gone crazy. They said that they feel like they are coming out and they say they hate you so much. One thing they have being saying lately is that they are losing traction and they are losing ground which is weird. I guess they are losing their footing inside me.

I really appreciate it, send anything else my way if you think it will help.

This is a breakthrough.

A few months ago, “Helen” asked me to write a blog or produce a video that would expose the ministry of “Simon.” Helen requested that I reveal Simon’s  true identity in order to warn others. My reservation is that  I wanted to be sure that Helen’s  torment was not because of a genetic  mental health disorder. Simply put,  I needed to be positive that her condition is spiritual and not mental.

In truth, I do not need Helen’s testimony to discern that Simon’s ministry is not from God. Nevertheless, I could not assume that his ministry was the direct cause of Helen’s torment because she could simply be delusional due to mental illness. So I chose to write this  article today, because Helen revealed something that she has no way of knowing. 1) evil spirits hate me 2) when they are being unseated, they will cry, complain, moan and grown. As she wrote “its like they are going crazy,” 3) demons will not come out if they don’t lose their legal rights or ground.

So other than reveal who Simon is, I suggest you run like a bat let out of hell from anyone who teaches you to seek a face to face visitation with Jesus. Jesus will certainly come to you through one or more of his religious evil spirits. These spirits will not be sent by Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

They will be dispatched to you by  the Fake Jesus. Jesus Sananda Immanuel. To know more about him, click here to get this book.

Be advised that I have no magic wands to wave.  As Helen has done, you have to work. It takes time to be un-deceived and to learn how to stand.
