BELIEVERS AND PROPHECY

6 Dec

by Gloria

Isaiah 46:9-11
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:11 calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

Amos 3:7
Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets

Prophecy is important in our lives as believers, from Old Testament saints like Joseph who learned about the famine before it happened, to Abram who God gave a new name Abraham meaning the father of many nations before Isaac or Ishmael was born. Prophet Isaiah wrote about Jesus and one of David’s Psalm foreshadowed the born again experience when he wrote ‘create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me’. There are many other examples that show that our God is a God of prophecy

The Enemy & Counterfeit Prophecies 

Many Christians go through experiences where pastors give them a prophetic word about their finances, current or potential spouses, children, etc. These prophecies are mainly about God prospering the believer with worldly possessions. The problem with these prophecies is that they are fleshly and appeal to our human desires. Prophecies like this make us the center and shows as if God is in servitude to humans. God is not at our beck and call and any teaching that says God is out to fulfill our desires is a false teaching.

There are those interpreting end time prophecies on various social media platforms but then tell viewers to make a choice for God. In doing so, they mix a truth with a lie and lead people to more bondage. Most of them probably don’t even know they are wrong. I personally was led into accepting Jesus through the sinner’s prayer after watching a “prophetic” end-time movie. The sinner’s prayer gave demons legal right in my life which led to a decade of deception and torment until I was delivered by learning the truth.

Confusion surrounding prophecies – have they occurred or not?  The preterist view states that certain scriptures were fulfilled a long time ago, and futurism interprets the same scripture stating that it will happen in the future. Both views were created with the intention to throw off believers in the middle ages from interpreting scripture surrounding the anti-Christ.

There is also a practice many do called bibliomancy – where one take scriptures or reads a bible character’s story and prophecy the same for themselves. Scriptures need to be read in context meaning you have to determine who the audience is and whether the topic addressed relates to you. A bible character’s story is not to be used to justify personal mistakes, a good example is many who are caught in adultery, are always quick to mention David and speak on how he was still God’s chosen. David’s adultery doesn’t give anyone else the license to engage in promiscuity or adultery. The same people who want to use David’s story show how they cherry pick verses to their liking because the same David suffered for the sin he committed. Just because God said he was a man after his own heart did not make him immune from the consequences of his sin.

THE RESULTS

End time prophecies have been used to create fear; people don’t like to touch the subject as they find it too complex. This leaves many vulnerable to false prophecies which they are unable to test and discern its source and motive.

Many are confused as to what they should be looking for due to so many views and mostly importantly many are being led to deception by saying the sinner’s prayer which opens them up to be demonized.

Distraction – if a prophecy can have you looking in the wrong direction you are pretty much a sitting duck for the enemy e.g. if you get a prophecy that you will be married in a year or so, chances are you will marry someone who shows up in that time-frame who is completely wrong for you.

Apathy – people have grown increasingly weary of hearing that Jesus is coming back as they have heard many prophecies giving the specific date of his return only for it not to happen. What’s even more tragic is that because of this alot of people are mocking what is actually going to happen to their own demise.

The purpose of prophecy is for God to reveal his plans before they unfold. Another reason is stated clearly in 1 Corinthians 14:3
“But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.”

Prophecy is important in a believer’s life and should not be used to promote fear but to forewarn, strengthen, encourage and comfort.

Believers should handle prophecy by testing all things, if it contradicts the scripture then don’t follow it.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.

Toxic Religion and the Fear of Hell

3 Dec

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

The “fear” of not being saved/born again is a tactic used by evil entities to capture and keep the individual in bondage.

The methods are numerous. A popular one is preaching or teaching on Hell – then giving the altar call afterwards to scare up a conversion.  The evil entities will play on the individuals’ emotions, and fill their minds with such fearful thoughts,  that they can not rightly think or reason for themselves. Many misunderstand and are motivated by what seems like a desire for God, but when you look closely at the roots of their experience,  it is out of fear of going to Hell that produces a surface “desire” for God which birthed a false conversion that came through the underhanded work of a religious fallen angel.

The doctrines of original sin and eternal damnation are true.  Yet  the way those doctrines are preached have caused  tremendous psychological distress, forcing folk into  to a  double bind. The duality is that they are judged  as  guilty and responsible and face eternal punishment, yet they  have no ability to do anything about it. In fact, they cannot even stop sinning altogether because they  are not really saved. so the captives to this dilemma  continue to confess and be forgiven, hoping that they have met the criteria despite a  complete lack of feedback about whether they  will actually make it into heaven.
 Were you led to God because of fear of hell? The psychological damage does not go away overnight. In fact, because this sort of indoctrination in young childhood is so powerful, the fear of hell can last a lifetime despite rational reasoning. Likewise the damage to self-esteem and basic self-trust can be crippling. This is why there are so many thousands of walking wounded – people accused and condemned by  a religious demon., aka the spirit of the Anti-Christ.
Deep down, the fear makes it that much harder to actually LOVE, or even LIKE, the God they  are supposed to love in order not to  go to this horrible place of eternal torture.

It’s like a catch-22.If You DON’T love God with all your heart, soul, and mind,  the teaching strongly implies that you are going to this horrible place. Yet just the fact of having to force yourself to conjure up feelings of love under threat of torture, makes it IMPOSSIBLE to do. All  such captives to this form of toxic religion can  do is bury those feelings & deceive themselves. – So spiritual deception becomes a spiritual defense  mechanism to keep them  alive, because  if they  really comprehended the dilemma placed in front of them, how could they NOT end up in a mental hospital?  One must have  strong, sound mind to withstand the accusation, condemnation, guilt and shame that religious demons act upon such captives on a daily basis.
This is spiritual abuse. Torture, in fact. Toxic theology, at its best.

So what is the answer?

Live your life.  Do not listen to such preaching.  We are not to preach hell but we are to preach the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  If you have been chosen by God,  you belong to God even on your most sinful day.  Before you die, He will come for you, even if its at your death bed. The Holy Spirit  needs less than 5 seconds to save you and snatch you out of the devil’s hands.

Also know that the true  desire for God comes from God.  We are ALL sinners and the scriptures reveal that none of us would desire Him on our own for any reason.  So if you desire God because you are afraid of hell, then you have not heard from God. God does not hand out spirits of fear and torment to His people.  So if you are in fear, you have not heard from God.  Also what that tells me is that you believe more in hell than in the God who created the place, not originally for us, but for Satan, fallen angels and demons.  Satan and demons are not IN hell—at least not yet.

If you truly desire God, then He put that desire in you.  He has given you the desires of His own heart.  And once He  has given you a desire for Him, He will cause you to be born again. Read how He does it from the prophet Eziekiel:

Ezekiel 36:25-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)

25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will removethe heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.

Witchcraft: A Work of the Flesh

8 Nov

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

If you EVER dabbled in the occult, then your personality is susceptible to witchcraft as a work of your flesh. What do you do with a work of the flesh? YOU CRUCIFY IT. Treat it like it is DEAD! You cannot cast out what is a part of your personality.

 

If you have any questions you can email rescueonfb@icloud.com or call 1-888-818-1117.

Are You Dead Yet?

2 Nov

This article provides a clear, simple understanding of what it means to crucify the flesh and walk in the spirit.

Preparing For End-Times

This is an article that very fee of you want to read. No one wants to hear the Apostle Paul when he writes “I am crucified with Christ yet nevertheless, I live. Not I, but Christ who lives in me. “. All we hear is the “Christ lives in me” part s if this is a literal fact. Christ is at the right hand of the Father right now. He lives through us when we start to live a crucified life.

Living a crucified life is that we become trained, habituated in fact, to walk in the spirit and not fulfill the lusts of our flesh. Logically speaking, if the flesh is “crucified” or “dead” then it has no lusts to fulfill.

Here is how the Holy Spirit works to crucify your flesh of soul. I like there word “soul” to explain this because flesh usually refers to the body…

The Lord’s Burden is Light! We Answer Your Questions!

21 Oct

Coaching is an expensive field. We have scholarship capabilities for those who are not financially grounded. We are not prosperity coaches based upon the false doctrine of prosperity. Yet we strongly believe that the workman is worthy of his meat. Our experience is that what comes cheap or is not valued. A disrespected message is not received and time is wasted.

Preparing For End-Times

I personally love it when those I coach ask questions. Yet there will always be those few people who have ulterior motives for asking them, most not realizing that they are being used by the enemy to waste my time, getting caught up in a religious argument for the sake of strife and debate.

I can easily recognize when people are trying to stump me or put me on the spot. The Lord recognized that from the religious zealots of His day and He did not allow them to divert Him from His mission, nor did He cast His pearls to swine.

If a question is not going to take me an hour to answer, then by all means, go ahead and ask the question that is on your mind. If it is going to take time on my part to answer it and I believe it is a worthy…

What Coaching As a Pastor Means To ME!

21 Oct

Integrity or the Lack Thereof! by Pam Sheppard

“Why Deliverance Counseling?” by Pam Sheppard

I receive my share of emails that either have “help me” in the title, or they end with “help me.”  No other info provided.

My style of coaching is to help folk to “help themselves.” My goal is to cause those I help to become bold, independent and strong, just like I am.

So to ask me for help in a desperate sounding way tells me that the seeker is looking for all the work to come entirely from me. A passive Christian perceives a pastor as one jumps out like superwoman, whip out my “anointing” to miraculously set them free while they just passively lay back and do nothing. The truth is that the answers to your captivity are within your own souls. As coach, my job is to uncover and discover where your own anointing lies.

My thoughts are, “you got into this. I will help you but you have to follow my lead and help yourself to get out of this mess.

So when you call me and report that you are living in sin, that you are STILL going to church or watching mega preachers on TV, that you are still following indigenous customs of your ancestors and culture, the way to help yourself is to cease and desist from these actions BEFOE I can help.

Check out these crucial words from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew. 12:29 “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.

My take on this scripture is that if a person is strong, the enemy can’t spoil his house unless he first renders him helpless by tying him up. It is my job to make you stronger.

The institutional church has wrongly referred to Satan as the strongman, in spite of the clarity of the Lord’s words in Matthew 12:29. The strongman is US, not the enemy. We are strong until we permit the enemy to tie us up.

When the Lord spoke these words, no one was yet born again. So I perceive it safe to assume that this scripture applies to any strong-willed person. it’s a natural fact. We will all fight for what is ours unless a thief threatens our lives with a deadly weapon. Only under such dire circumstances will we allow ourselves to sit in a chair and passively let an intruder wrap us around with a rope and tightly tie it to completely immobilize us. Even when tied up, our minds will search around the room for something sharp to untie ourselves when we get a chance.

From a spiritual perspective, whenever The Lord used the word “house,” he was symbolically referring to our souls. The enemy is the one who binds our souls with invisible chains and cords.. Since the soul consists of the mind, the emotions, the will power, and the personality, if our souls our bound, then we are certainly rendered helpless.

So my job as both pastor and coach is to help you unwind yourself. Yes, I have the power to cast out demons in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Yet if you are not unbound within your belief system and your personality, the enemy will bind you AGAIN.

So if you want my help, the best effort I can give to you is to build your strength so that once you are free, you have the capacity to remain free and even set others free!!!

Here are resources that will also help.

To Avoid Apostasy in End Times: Stay Out of Haunted Houses!

21 Oct

When I was a faithful pastor in the institutional church, aka the IC, I had several memorable dreams that showed me her spiritual condition of  but I misinterpreted them. I thought the dreams were pertaining to the actual church in the dream , when that  particular church was only intended to be representative.

A symbol OF THEM ALL.

In these dreams, the pulpit and altar area were defiled with menstrual blood, feces and urine. I would also dream about toilets overflowing in the sanctuary. I did not understand those dreams until after I left the IC.

I now know that the defilement represented the plagues. For in the natural, plagues have broken out because of infectious, unclean conditions like rats and such. The unclean natural condition of a house will cause it to be condemned, boarded up. A haunted house is filled with the demons that once inhabited the dead who lived in that house. When the inhabits died, the demons came out and did not have anywhere else to go and reside unless new people rented or bought the house.

I call the IC a haunted house because it is filled with evil spirits who have taken Her  over, because of the plagues. These are the seducing spirits that the Apostle Paul warned Timothy about.  They are fallen angels that specialize in teaching religion.  Jesus called the religious folk of his day, white washed tombs on the outside, contaminated with dead men’s bones on the inside. This is the institutional church today. It is a huge whitewashed tomb. A haunted house.

Don’t let the white washed physicality, Her stained glass beauty fool you. The spirit realm is invisible to our eyes but it still exists. In the spirit realm, every pulpit is covered in unclean blood, urine and feces, no matter how sincere the pastor or how helpful and kind are Her members.

A Profile of A Religious Detox

10 Oct

By Gloria

As a member of RESCUE who has experienced being set free from demons, one of the things that surprised me as I went through counseling and detoxed from religion was the fact that I had engaged in witchcraft without my knowledge. Looking back I never interacted with people who engaged in witchcraft. In fact, to my knowledge,i never even read occult books or watched any occult shows. I considered such things as the worship of the devil— pure evil which i didn’t want to be associated with.

Consequently, It was shocking and humbling to discover that some of my self- righteous religious acts were no different from those of a new age practitioner . So even though I never engaged in the occult, it was shocking to discover that I learned witchcraft practices in the Institutional Church.

Witchcraft can simply be defined as the practice of magic, the use of spells and invoking spirits.

There are several ways that I was duped into witchcraft while attending an Institutional church.

Witchcraft Prayers

I owned several spiritual warfare books and recited statements that involved commanding “angels”, the stars, planets and even God. I would bind the devil and cast him back to hell. These prayers used scripture out of context. For sure, no human can command God to do anything, so to think otherwise is foolish. We lie to ourselves if we think God is at our beck and call.

To command the sun, moon, planets and stars is delusional, but to command angels has a dangerous spin to it. Gods’ angels do not accept our invitations or instructions but fallen angels do, in order for the devil to have legal right to be in your life, you have to invite him in.

My invitation to these fallen angels had severe consequences. I started suffering from demonic torment – my mind, body and soul was under constant attack. My fear grew greatly as the attacks would happen mainly at night.

During prayer meetings, people used to be manipulated to change their ways by being shamed in public prayers where intercessors would air out people’s issues. When ministers control & manipulate people’s behavior, their actions are a clear sign of witchcraft. There are many examples of how people are controlled in the church and public prayer is one of the them.

Religious Rituals

To counter the demonic torment that I suffered from, I turned to more rituals – applying anointing oil on my bed, door, windows, ceilings and on myself. Inviting the Holy Spirit to come in and fill my apartment, I played worship music and recited bible verses and prayers. None of this helped, In fact, I simply added fuel to the fire. My religious acts were also motivated by fear not faith.

Bibliomancy

I would also, seek out random passages in the Bible and apply them to my life with no regard for the context. I also used it to “decree and declare” my future and pray for certain events to occur. This practice which I was taught in the church actually comes from the Middle ages where people who practiced divination would open the bible and whichever page they landed upon, they would read out the scripture and use it to give spiritual insight into what they are looking for. I was pretty much behaving like my own psychic.

Worshipping in the flesh

The Bridal paradigm in the church has brought about the increase of love songs to Jesus which are disguised as praise and worship songs. Everytime I engaged in a worship session, I would feel warm and tingly in my chest, I assumed that these were “feelings of God’s love” overflowing in me. These experiences were short lived which caused me to depend upon an emotional roller-coaster. The more I felt unloved,the more needed to attend more worship sessions to feel loved. I’ve come to learn that love is not a feeling & more importantly the Holy Spirit does not entertain our flesh. These manifestations of “love” were all sensual and had nothing to do with the Spirit of God. True believers of the Lord Jesus have to worship in Spirit & in Truth.

In the New Idolatry, Pastor Pam Sheppard writes in detail how witchcraft has infiltrated the Institutional Church, One part that stood out to me is how a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian could address a similar issue using methods that many would assume are worlds apart, when in reality, they actually are similar and run parallel to each other. Below is an excerpt from the book:-

“For the sake of comparison, consider how both a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian would approach a typical problem, namely, a woman seeking to stop the infidelity of a lover or husband. From the occultist, the woman might be required to purchase a defense enchantment like burying her man’s shirt at full moon, while pronouncing a curse or a magic formula seven times. As the shirt wears out and disintegrates in the ground overtime, so also will the man’s love for the other woman fade and dissolve.

Both the occultists and those deceived by charismatic teachings rely on the credulity and readiness of those they counsel and advise. In like manner, charismatic witchcraft might approach this classic problem from a variety of religious perspectives, with the twist that God is made amenable to the woman’s plans. Supernatural dreams and visions labeled the discerning of spirits, a word of wisdom, a word of knowledge and prophecy, intercessory prayers of “binding and loosing” and the taking of scripture out of their natural context and applying them to the woman’s personal agenda are the primary methods of choice. In this instance, the woman might be advised to pray over her man’s side of the bed, anoint it with oil or holy water, name it and claim it by sending forth evil prayers against her man’s lover, in unsavory ways unbefitting to Jesus Christ, and pray controlling, manipulative prayers to change the man’s behavior.Rather than deal openly with the issues of infidelity, sin and spousal abuse, Charismatics are infamous for seeking “the supernatural solution.”

To my dismay, I learned, that many practices both in and out of the church that are widely accepted as normal today actually have their origins in witchcraft. I thank God for my deliverance journey that started when I reached out to Pastor Pam who walked me through the deliverance process, helped me break my false conversion and discard false teachings. I got healed from my torment once I received the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Since we live in such deceptive times, you could be engaging in witchcraft practices, totally unaware. The danger in doing so is you open yourself up to the spiritual world and give demons legal rights to enter your life and run it amok.

If you need to learn more on how witchcraft got widely accepted in the church and how to avoid being deceived get a copy of “The New Idolatry” at

Does Jesus Sananda Have Your Soul?

9 Oct

The one who is in control of the message is in control of your soul. Behind the pulpits of every church, no matter how faithful or sincere the preacher, is an unseen force behind the delivery of their message. That unseen force is a cadre of fallen angels who are known in the New Age occult world as ascended masters. If they ascended from anywhere, it was the pit of hell.

The one in control of the message and countless lower level evil spirits is the one called Jesus Sananda Immanuel seen in the image. He is the great imposter who has successfully imitated the real Son of God, Jesu Christ of Nazareth. How Sananda infiltrated the institutional church is a long story. To know more, you need the book “the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.” It can be obtained here:
