Are You A False Prophet?

24 Jul

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

In ministry since 1981, I know a thing or two about false prophets. Besides the TV mega preachers that I watched for years, I also came to know at least 200 ministers while I was pastoring in a well-known denomination. So from my observations, I have designated 3 different types of false prophets. The deceived, the detoured and the diabolical.

There are those false prophets who are really saved but they followed the wrong leaders, and “sucked into themselves” mixed and false doctrines and practices. In short, they heeded and harkened unto the voice of seducing spirits and doctrines of the devil. However, they have not yet departed from the faith. These I call, “the Deceived.” Some of them will be set free. Because of pride, sad to say, others won’t be. Some false prophets would prefer to be caught up in a scandal than to admit that they taught error and thereby “led the people in the wrong direction, away from God, and not toward Him.” They are too spiritually proud to admit that they did not rightly divide the word of God.

Then there is the false prophet who was once used of God mightily, but he or she got deceived by the enemy and fell into disrepute. These I call “the Detoured.” This man or woman becomes a pretender—one who is very dangerous to those who are babes in Christ or who remain carnal Christians. Their followers “stand by their man” even when they should jump ship. The bible has a classic example of how the detoured “Old Prophet” deceived the man of God, resulting in the latter’s death. (I Kings 13)

Then of course, there is the out-and-out pretender who knows that he or she is serving the spirit of the Anti-Christ and everything they do is a masquerade. These I call “the Diabolical.” They are imposters, planted in among Christians to willfully bring confusion that will lead to destruction.

Every false prophet type— whether the Deceived, the Detoured, and the Diabolical— is equally dangerous. Why? Because they can leave a huge trail of victims.  I am humbled and thankful that although I was on the road to becoming a false prophet, the Holy Ghost jerked my chain, then cut it and broke it.  When  I was deceived by charismatic teachings,” God blessed me by closing doors and blocking me from spreading error. Even though I once had the heart, the skill and the desire of a mega preacher, God purposefully would not allow me to become a popular celebrity.. When a door opened, the Holy Ghost closed it and blocked my way through it. Moreover, among those that I have pastored, even though I personally believed some mixed doctrines, I didn’t teach them to those who allowed me to lead them. So praise God, after 36 years as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have no victims.

For example, I spoke in tongues, but I didn’t teach my followers to do so. I tithed, but I did not preach a “sow a seed,” prosperity gospel. In fact, I was completely self-sustaining. I gave back my church salary in the form of tithes and offerings to the churches that I pastored. When I practiced healing and the laying on of hands, I never told anyone to stop taking their medicine and “walk by faith.” I primarily preached the cross, sin, repentance, rebirth and the resurrection. But make NO MISTAKE. The false prophets of all 3 varieties:— the deceived, the detoured and the diabolical— are equally dangerous! Your prayers for them to repent may NOT prevail. And why not?

In order to repent, the false prophet has to do more than apologize and ask for forgiveness from those he has abused and deceived. If he has been made rich off of the backs of poor people by preaching the prosperity gospel, then God will require him or her to “give back” all of that money to the poor. Not too many false prophets are willing to give up those jet planes, million dollar homes and those Bentleys. Even the false prophets who are NOT mega, many of them have practiced the lie for so long, that it is practically impossible to receive the truth and act on it. Far too many have made “ministry” their career and not their calling.

Ask the Apostle Paul. He maintained as a tent maker. He would not allow any of the churches that he set up to totally provide his livelihood. That is why he could write, “whether abased or exalted, I can do ALL things 4 through Christ who strengthens me.” In other words, JUST SO YOU KNOW, I am not dependent upon YOU to live and to serve my God. When a false prophet’s livelihood is intricately tied to church dollars and resources, he or she is captive to a self-made trap that cannot be escaped from without God’s help. Actually, some false prophets have to be stripped naked to find God again, if they ever knew Him. So if you really think a particular false prophet is deceived, perhaps detoured but not diabolical, then your prayer should be “Lord, strip him.”

A word of caution. The religious demon assigned to me tried to set me up to become  a false prophet.  In several dreams, he showed me standing before huge audiences, walking up and down across a platform with my bible in my hand, preaching and teaching.  He even showed me pastoring a church of about 10,000 people.  Because I sought after the power to slay in the spirit, after 10 years of seeking, I got it. I could wave my hand, and certain ones would fall out, unconscious.  However, I began to question this power because I noticed that the ones in my congregation who fell out the most, were also those who could not STAND for the Lord, relapsing or backsliding constantly.  So I said to myself, “Pam, there is something wrong with this so-called gift. This cannot be from the Holy Ghost!” Once I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to “show me  the darkness,” I got quite the wake-up call that revealed that  the mega preacher phenomena of today is NOT of the Lord.  It is a combination of human charisma, “anointed” by the enemy’s power. My testimony is in “Come Out of Her God’s People.”

So if you are on that road, you need to get off, and get off with a quickness! If you have been burned by a false prophet, there is help.  Call 1-888-818-1117

Learning From Your Mistakes

20 Jul

Mistakes and Deliverance

Image result for learning from your mistakes

 It has been my experience that the doorway UNKNOWINGLY left wide open to demonic torment is a captive’s fear of ever making a mistake. Demons take great pleasure in tormenting people who they can control with criticism, shame and accusation. As a deliverance counselor, I realize that for each captive, there is a different root cause. For the most part, a fear of making a mistake comes from how you were raised. Those who have been under the authority of extremely judgmental, critical parenting are inclined to either become passive or aggressive in their response to this fear.

The passive ones try to “always be correct and proper” because they are afraid of suffering the consequences that judgmental parenting brings. On my web caseload over the last 14 years, those who are constantly hearing critical, accusing voices in their minds have been raised by critical, judgmental parents. Perfectionism in passive people also leads them to be ardent people pleasers–a breeding ground for depression.

The aggressive folks tend to become the rebels of the world who often seem to make mistakes on purpose and by design because they simply enjoy annoying people. In other words, “if you made me the black sheep of the family, I’m going to play that role with style and gusto! If you told me when I was 10 years old that I am going to be no good, just like my father, well, I am going to be “my father” to the 25th power. So watch me, Mom, as I go through the revolving prison door of recidivism. Watch me and suffer Mom, because you have tried to frame me with a fear of being like a Dad that I didn’t even know, because of you and YOUR failures!

Here is another pattern. January 2 of every year  could be renamed “Get Rid of the Fat Day. There are unseen reasons why some of us got fat. Here is the scenario for the rebel:  ” If you have called me “fat” all of my life when I was not fat but voluptuous and my sensuality disturbed you, Mom—-I am REALLY going to become fat just to show you what FAT REALLY IS AND that I don’t care what you think of my body type!!!!”

Scenarios like these are often played out on a sub-conscious level. Anytime you don’t know who you are and why you are behaving the way that you do, you are a prime target for demonic interference. As a deliverance counselor, this is the reason  why I am less concerned about whether or not you ever experimented with the occult or drugs than I am about how you deal with “making mistakes.” It does not take a great deal of education to become a great learner. Learning involves listening and mimicking. Even if we can’t read or write, life itself is going to teach us something!!!” If you have never made a mistake then you have not learned very much.

For the Christian in particular, God designs the lessons of life disguised in the form of obstacles, mistakes and difficulties through a maze of trials, tribulations, troubles and tests. Why? Because the Christian walk in the spirit by faith in God alone is what earns us our eternal crowns. Without any ashes, there is no beauty. Without failure, there is no glory. Without falling, we really don’t know how to stand. We are sinners who must totally rely on the Holy Spirit’s leading in order to please a perfect God. He is pleased when we can resist the pride of our sinful nature and embrace our ashes.

I was born 73 years ago. I was born again 40 years ago. All I have to give to God is a life of mistakes and failures. These are my infirmities, and like Paul, I actually glory in them. I know that I glory in them because when I speak or write about my mistakes, I have no inner pulling of sorrow, shame or regret in my heart. I know that I glory in them because I give practically no thought or expression to the things that man would consider successful accomplishments. I glory in my mistakes because I have come to know that the power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is all over me when I can acknowledge my own weaknesses.

There is a difference between making a mistake and being a mistake. If I am in Christ, then I am not a mistake. On the contrary, if I rely on “self,” then I am functioning as a mistake. What the bible confirms is that God did not believe that I was a mistake or I would not be here. God does not believe that YOU are a mistake or YOU would not be here either. When we begin to see even an iota of how big and all-consuming God is, then we will stop worrying about our mistakes and the demons that are assigned to us will be bound and gagged.

Twenty eight years ago, I committed a serious sin that brought about its consequences and its ramifications. On last Friday, the religious demon assigned to me sent me a dream that showed me committing the exact same sin and “loving it.” Demons rarely accuse me of sin because they know that I don’t receive or respond to their guilt trips. However, THIS time, they “got me good” because the dream disturbed at least half of my day. The dream was a mockery. What I found offensive is that I was shown that I still have the desire to do the exact same thing, a sin that would be extremely hurtful to God as well as to other people whom I would certainly hurt.

Do I have the desire to commit the sin again? Absolutely not. Would I do so if tempted? Absolutely not. However, here is the truth of it. The flesh DOES NOT CHANGE! In my flesh, I am STILL capable of committing the exact same sin TODAY!!! Yet, though I am capable, I WILL not do it. Why not? Because I don’t walk in the flesh. I walk in the spirit. And because of Jesus Christ, the desires of my heart and my spirit HAVE CHANGED. There is NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.

You see, Brethren, Christians who are afraid of making mistakes focus on self-righteousness and not on the righteousness of God in Christ. They are not looking to the cross. They are looking to self. They are trying to please God just as they tried to please their earthly parents. Yet our understanding and practice of perfection is totally different from God’s as it pertains to His people. Take Job, as our classic biblical example. He was as perfect as man can get, pleasing to God, yet prior to Calvary.

That was Job’s problem. He was toooo perfect. He had no mistakes to draw from. Without the mistakes, Job really did not know God very well. Once God allowed the devil to attack Job, Job’s hidden mistakes were revealed. He was focused on “self-righteousness. The true nature of God was also revealed. Once confronted by his religious friends, Job became defensive. Defensiveness is an outgrowth of pride. If you are defensive, then even the very thought of making a mistake becomes a bondage to you. On the real, face it. Mistakes are part of our lives and we will keep making mistakes till our last breath. In my book, “Faces of the Religious Demon” are scores of case summaries of professing Christians who religious demons tormented because their captives were afraid of making mistakes.  For one reason or another, deliverance counseling uncovered   a complicated pride system at the root.

If I am speaking to YOU, then deliverance counseling or mentoring will help you get the victory in 2017. So call and book a telephone session. 1-888-818-1117

My Personal Experience With Tongues

11 Jun

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

When posting on facebook on this hot topic about 6 years ago,  I recall that the responses were clearly impulsive, sudden argumentative  reactions of tongue talkers taken aback and even outraged by my position on this subject. It was as if the commentators did not even give themselves time to think and meditate on my post before responding. I was shocked. Readers actually sat down in the early morning hours —took time away from their busy schedules— to post quite a few rather lengthy rebuttals, as if it was a major sin to even question tongue speaking.  Thee commentators seemed irrational in their protest, as if themselves, under the influence of evil spirits.

Tongues is certainly a volatile issue, to put it mildly. Nevertheless, it seems that I may have “touched on something” here.  So I wonder, “why are the demons so upset, simply because I am obeying the spirit by “trying everything spiritual, including “tongues”?”  I have personally confronted the religious demon on several occasions. I have even cast out various demons with much success. I have written several books that  deal with unveiling Satan’s wiles and strategies, so my work and agenda is not new to the enemy. In fact, it has been proven to me that demons can recall every sentence on each page of all 8 of my books–a feat that is impossible even for me, the author of them. I have to search the table of contents to find what I am looking for.

Perhaps I did not get attacked for writing books, because tongues, though mentioned, is not the primary emphasis of the book. As I reviewed several commentaries, it appears that when I indicated that I had reservations about tongues for two decades, perhaps I did not make myself clear. You need to know that I did not originally question the tongues that others spoke, but only my own “tongue.” Nor did I mean that I originally believed that tongues was from the devil.

In truth, I once loved to speak in tongues. It certainly did I  sooth my flesh. In that regard, speaking in tongues is self edifying and self gratifying. I am a conversationalist—a preacher and a teacher of the word of God as well— so I tend to be articulate.. Even so, in tongues, I can utter non-stop for hours. You need to be aware that chanting, transcendental meditation and yoga have the same pleasant and even ecstatic effects upon the flesh.

Laboratory research has proven that tongues and other forms of mental passivity give the frontal lobe of the brain a real rest. This is because the mind is literally unfruitful when tongues is uttered, even more unfruitful than the state of sleep. Our minds work pretty well during sleep, as evidenced by the quality of our dream life. However, when I speak in tongues, all thinking actually stops until I cease from speaking. Even if I were to try to babble out something, my mind would be thinking of the next babbling sound to utter.

However, not so with tongues. All thought comes to an end as the utterances roll off of the tongue like water. Not at all concerned until recently about the legitimacy of the overall tongues movement in our time, my original concern was totally personal. Simply put, I questioned whether or not I myself had received tongues in the correct spiritual manner.

To explain further, I wondered why tongues did not “come upon me” as I witnessed the speaking in tongues of others and along the same lines, I wondered why I seemed to have so much control over my own utterances. I spoke tongues regularly, but in my own personal life, I never attributed my spiritual growth to it. Actually, I personally found effects upon my flesh. Rather, correction and chastisement of fires of refinement as opposed no spiritual benefit to it other than its soothing I have grown in Christ by submitting myself to the Holy Ghost, groomed and strengthened in the to uttering by the fires of a prayer language.

A particular incident is noteworthy. The year was 1985. I was travelling on a narrow, country road in upstate New York on a very cold, bright and sunny winter morning. Since it was bitter cold, I had the heat blasting— but on top of that, the sun was shining directly on me through the car windows, in all of its brightness. I was very warm but not sweating. Then there was the sound of the tires on the road that made a repetitive sound every few seconds–kerplunk, kerplunk, kerplunk.

As a former student and practitioner of relaxation therapy, aka hypnosis,  I was trained to impart the imagination and visualization of heat accompanied by a monotonous tone of a hypnotic  voice  as mesmerizing tools to “put a person under.” In short, I became hypnotized by the heat and the repetitive sounds of the tires on the road. While in an altered state of consciousness, I heard a hypnotic voice  repeat, “follow that car.” I also felt  a push forward, as though attempting  to take action and  follow the car that came from behind and passed me .  What transpired is that an  invisible being had compelled  me to cross the solid line and kill myself while I was in a trance.I was about to obey that voice when my hands gripped so tight on the steering wheel that I couldn’t move them if I wanted to. My hands actually froze—locked tightly so that all I could do was drive straight ahead. My eyes were opened the entire time and I saw it all, yet I was hypnotized.

Suddenly, as I awoke out of the trance, a huge truck whizzed right by me in the opposite lane. I realized then, that if I had followed the car, I would not have been alive today to write about this. I would have crashed head on into that truck. There were about 5 cars behind the truck as well. Others would have certainly died that day. When I got home, I spoke to a close “significant other” who rather casually remarked, “as I was sitting at my desk today, I saw a vision of you. You were riding in a car and the sun was shining very brightly on you. I didn’t know what was going on so I just “prayed in tongues.”

Consequently, for 20 years, this incident was my main proof that tongues was a “prayer language.” I found a supportive scripture taken “out of context” in Romans 8:26 as my so-called “confirmation”, namely, that we know not what to pray for as we ought and that the Holy Ghost prays the perfect will of God for us. Yet I ignored the rest of that scripture, namely, that the Holy Ghost does this with groanings, and not with tongues. The scripture clearly states that the groanings “ARE NOT UTTERED.” Speaking in tongues is AN UTTERANCE, so I believe we are in error when we stretch Romans 8:26 in order to confirm that tongues is a “prayer language.”.

So that you know, the enemy is famous in the use of what Christians call “confirmation,”—a subject of a future article. . Within my own congregation, I witnessed how tongues spontaneously came upon others and how “ecstatic” the experience was for them. In my case, it was neither spontaneous nor ecstatic, and I wondered if “it should be.” On the contrary, when I spoke in tongues, it was rather “conversational, and “though it felt good, I rarely became ecstatic or emotional. I also noted that among the tongue talkers within the congregation that I pastored, I could find no fruits of the spirit. In fact, some church members were seriously demonized, others suffered from mental illness. In short, every Christian drug addict among us were prolific in the speaking in tongues.

 I perceived a problem with that.

Since I began to take a serious look at tongues in 2007, I decided to temporarily stop speaking in tongues until I was assured. Strangely enough,   although I  have  successfully restrained myself from speaking in it for 10 years, there are rare occasions  when I literally have to strengthen my will power against blurting out tongues at isolated times during a day. On occasion, I could  feel it in me, as  a slightly compulsive and impulsive desire to literally “cut loose” with it.

This “phenomena” had not occurred since I first spoke in tongues in 1983, as I always uttered by the desire of my own will. Actually I was normally rather neutral about it. Now that I have both questioned it and refused to utter, sometimes  I momentarily experience  a strong urge to speak in tongues, which I fight. This is NOT a comfortable feeling. I can hear you tongue talkers now, screaming at me through the airways, “you are grieving and quenching the Holy Ghost, Pam. Give in to your compulsion and “let it roll!!!” Well,  I vowed that until I know without a shadow of a doubt that the tongues that I speak is of God, I will not speak in tongues.  Ten years have passed.  The compulsion pressured me less, yet I suspect it is not fully extinguished. Even so,   I do not yield to it. For when the compulsion comes, all that bursts through my mouth is about 10 seconds of “Ba,ba, ba, ba,ba” By the way, I did some research and discovered that Satan’s followers affectionately call him “Ba Ba” in a similar way that we call our natural father’s “Daddy.” in my memory, every tongue talker that I have heard will say “Ba Ba!!!!!”

Another problem that caused me to “raise my eyebrow” is that the majority of people in the  church I once pastored  and those I met from other churches who spoke in tongues bore no spiritual fruit of holiness. I relate to the words of James where he questioned, “how can bitter and sweet waters come out of the same cistern?” For example, in my own congregation as well as those known to me as members of word of faith and pentecostal churches, I simply could not understand how people who were obviously hypocritical, legalistic and even mean-spirited could be so prolific in a language inspired by “the Holy Ghost.” Isn’t the Holy Ghost grieved and quenched by sin?

Good question. Then too, if a person does not walk in love, Paul explains that tongues are useless. (1Corin 13) Singling out no person other than myself, as a single Christian woman, fornication remained a stronghold for me as a babe in Christ. Like the Corinthians, I also ignorantly carried over practices from “the dumb idols” of occultism for quite a few years, so when Paul warned the Corinthians to flee fornication, he spoke to me also. Yet, even at the weakest and most compromised stage of my own spiritual walk, I consistently remained fluent in tongues.

So, until 2007, I had no suspicion  that tongues could be “of the devil.” Even so, I would not be the first to share such a supposition. Tongue talkers have been accused of “having a demon” by countless professing Christians and non-Christian. So what is going on “today?” In terms of “what is going on in my life today, this week, I cast out 8 Hindu deities from one former yoga practitioner who is a Christian: Shiva, Hakini, Savashiva, Isha, Vahni, Vishnu, Rakini and Brahma in the name and by the authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Practically each of these demons came out ranting at me using its captive to speak in tongues—a very similar sound to the tongues that I have heard uttered among those who profess to be speaking “a prayer language.”

Not that I believe this, but for the sake of  argument from a “devil’s advocate” position,  suppose there is a true tongue spoken and interpreted today and I am simply one of millions who  received tongues in the wrong way.  I have had a lot in common with the Corinthians for I too  unknowingly worshipped at the altar of pagan gods, aka demons. Since the Corinthians were saved, Paul did not suggest that demons be cast out of them but only that they “interpret.” If no interpretation, then no speaking. This is simple. It has been 10 years of no tongue utterance on my behalf and I have had no demons cast from me. The Apostle Paul suggested that the person who speaks in tongues should also seek to interpret. I sought to interpret for 25 years and my prayer was never answered. . Therefore,  I heed Paul’s counsel and I simply will not speak in tongues without an interpreter. Actually, I will never again speak in tongues because I suspect that tongues spoken in the last century are demonic.

Tongues and Mental Health

I belong to a very small, rather elite group of professional therapists who used counseling to set people free from demons.  One of those people was Kurt Koch from Germany.  I was reading his book published in 1973 where he presented a discussion, comparing real mental illness to  being demonized.  Tongues  entered into the discussion as a sign of possession!

There is a lot to learn from Koch.  Sure, he was an “I accept Jesus” person, yet he had a lot of cases and so his findings are important.  What gets me is the connection he makes to tongues as a sign of being demonized.  Here are the words of Koch:

The greatest difference, however, between psychosis (mental illness) and occult subjection is the ability of a possessed person to speak in a foreign language while in a state of trance. This is not to be confused with genuine glossolalia, a gift of the Holy Spirit. It is rather a demonic counterpart to speaking in tongues. I know of both witch doctors and spiritistic mediums who are able to speak in foreign languages while in ecstasies or in a trance. I can give you an example of this from Australia. A missionary friend of mine with whom I once worked, told me of an incident he knew about where six tribal witch doctors, following a long ceremonious  procedure, finally began to speak in foreign languages with voices not their own. If I had the time I could go on to describe further characteristic differences between psychoses and possession. The conflict one meets with possessed people involve realms which transcend rational thought and understanding.

Finally, I personally believe that tongues have ceased.  The reason I believe that all tongues spoken today is a counterfeit is based on simple logic and basic commonsense. I found that  as I conducted research for the book “the fake Jesus,”  tongues actually DID cease as Paul told the Corinthians that they would.  History reveals that tongues ceased for 19 centuries. Think about it. No Christian needed or ever heard of “a prayer language” for 1900 years!!!!!.

Why did tongues cease?

Well, simply put,  its purpose had been fulfilled.

Here is a quote from the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.

“God Himself brought forth many languages to hinder the building of the tower of Babel. In Genesis 11, we read that because of the people’s rebellion, God confused the language of all the earth so that the people would not be able to understand each other’s speech, How ironic and counter-rebellious on the part of Maitreya. As Satan’s representative of endtimes, Maitreya plans to do just the opposite in Mystery Babylon, which includes the organized church.  Maitreya’s goal is to cause all who speak in different tongues to hear him in ONE tongue. This is a complete reversal of God’s actions to hinder the tower of Babel. This is blasphemy to the nth degree.  Anyone who does not close the door to self-induced passivity is at risk of becoming reprobate.”

The Soul and False Conversion

1 Jun

By Pastor Pam

HOW A FALSE CONVERSION OCCURS

Because the spirit and the soul are not separate but  tightly knitted or braided  around each other as are  the ligaments, marrow and jonts in our legs, it is difficult to discern the difference between the two.  The soul is easiest to recognize because the concerns and needs of “self” are generally apparent.  We recognize the “body” side of the soul because we can see the results through the activity of the natural frame.  We can see selfishness, ambition, competition, and jealousy  because the body,  through material and natural things, will engage in scenarios that expose self striving.   

However, where we fall short is in our ability  to discern the soul from the spirit, which is also “flesh.” I am considering a gospel account of the words of the Lord when a funeral procession went by. He turned to his disciples and said, “let the dead bury the dead.”  How can the dead bury the dead? What Jesus was actually saying is “let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead.” Meaning: those who are alive in both the body and the soul have a dead spirit.  A dead spirit is one that is separated, alienated, and without God in the world.  That is a dead spirit.  It doesn’t mean that there is no awareness or activity in the spirit.

The spirit of the lost is very much alive in the kingdom of darkness, but he or she is alienated from the kingdom of heaven. It makes itself known through various nightmares and irrational fears.  When it is active, man’s dead spirit is open to the hellish dark world of spirits ruled over by the Prince of darkness. When it is both active AND powerful, the spirit is capable of a variety of supernatural feats including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience and astral travel or out of body experiences.

When a lost or alienated person “accepts Jesus” as Lord and Savior, it can’t be the spirit who does so because the spirit  of that person is dead, alienated, and walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in those who are disobedient by the lust of their flesh.  In such a condition, the soul has to take over.  In the lost, the soul fulfills the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and the lost person has the nature of self consciousness.

So since a dead spirit cannot “accept God,” the soul takes over in its parts: mind, emotions and volition or will and says, “I accept Jesus as Lord and Savior” and begins a religious ritual that imitates intimacy and relationship. The working of the enemy through the mind or ideas of man quenches the work of the Holy Ghost to quicken that person’s spirit.  For the powers of darkness are keenly clever in working alongside of and simulating the born again experience.

When a person is REALLY born again, the soul takes a back seat.  The Holy Ghost “quickens” the spirit through repentance. As defined by Paul to the Ephesians, to quicken means to be made alive.  As Jesus Christ was raised from the dead physically or bodily, to be born again is to be raised from the dead spiritually. In other words, a dead spirit has been raised to becoming a vessel for the Holy Ghost.  Since the spirit does not have a will, volition is a choice or decision made by the soul.  What the spirit has is intuition. Paul revealed that the reason the spirit is raised from the dead is because “God is rich in mercy.” So the resurrection of the spirit begins in the intuition and then translated into  understanding  by the soul.

When the soul “accepts Jesus,” the spirit remains dead but with great acting skills, the soul can religiously  imitate the things of God. The fallen spirit of man, alienated and separated from God is sunk down into the soul so that the soul manifests as intellect or sensuality, often in both. In such cases, the soul reigns over both the spirit and the body. The way that the new life reaches the spirit is shown in the Lord’s own words: You must be born again.  The Holy Ghost “breathes” where ever He chooses. This is not the decision of man but the will of God.

The believer who has been raised from the dead in the spirit to newness of like is born of the Spirit or “born again.” The Holy Ghost, who takes up a dwelling place in the reborn spirit, has given the believer a revelation of the Cross and the Lord’s resurrection. This revelation is first received in the spirit. As James indicates in his letter, the wisdom that is from above—from the Holy Spirit—is pure, peaceable, gentle, merciful—without any element of the life of the soul—opinions, self views, strife-jealousy. So when a person is born again, the spirit imparts  understanding  to the soul through the mind, will and the emotions.

What is happening among those who claim that “they accepted Jesus,” is that they have done so through the soul and therefore, their spirits have remained dead.  The intellect of one whose spirit is dead is decidedly fallible and becomes the most dangerous of the soul’s gifts because God seekers use their minds to understand spiritual truths.  The scriptures reveal that the soulish man cannot receive the things of the Spirit, because they can only be spiritually discerned.

According to the late great Jessie Penn Lewis, “It is the soulish element in teachers and professors of holiness, which is often the cause of separation and disunion.  There may be, it is true, love in the heart to those who ‘differ,’ but the ‘differences’ divide nevertheless, because the demoniacal powers, able to work upon the soulish element in the believer, always emphasize or exaggerate the difference in “views of truth,” instead of magnifying the points of union, and even drive eager believers to ‘fight’ for their view of ‘truth,‘ under the name of ‘witnessing for God.” It is also the soulish element in Christians which insists upon the minute correspondence of others its ‘views of truth,’ and ‘tithe mint and anise and cumin’, in words whilst leaving ‘undone the weightier matters of the law’—which in the gospel dispensation of the Spirit between believers as the condition of their growth into ‘unity of the faith. ‘In brief, the soul-life, influenced by evil supernatural powers, is the main cause of divisions and separation among the professing, and even the true children of God.”

For this reason as pointed out by Sis. Jessie, the churches are filled with nominal worshippers of Christ, who show no marks of a true Christian life within them. In a nutshell, influences that bypass the spirit and only reach the soul may prepare the way by bringing the seeker within the reach of the truth which is read from the scriptures.  Outer strivings may make for a kind  self righteousness that  has a value and place in the world.  However, by virtue of these outer trappings, such seekers  will be fooled into believing that the strivings of the soul is evidence that he or she is born again.  Not so.  Since God views self righteous as filthy rags, the spirits of such seekers is untouched. Dead.  Alienated.  Without God.

Those whose souls imitate salvation are diversified.  Dynamic personalities   sway and move the emotions of others.  Their fruit—like TD Jakes for example—is to move the emotions of the soul.  The problem is that the faith of the hearers stands in the influence or wisdom of people like TD, and not in the power of God.  Intellectuals uses schemes to reach men and bring them to God, some preaching hell and damnation to frighten people to God, others using heaven, prosperity, gospelfests, social fellowship, networking  etc.

The outcome is that people are attracted to the fake Jesus, and not of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What happens is a dangerous thing, so dangerous, that I will have to address it in more detail Part III. Suffice it to say for now, that people who are deceived into believing that they got born again, STILL have a dead spirit.  When dead, the spirit is susceptible to the evil side of the spirit world where psychic power is mistaken for the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Consequently, unsaved people are speaking in tongues, laying hands on others, imparting demons into vulnerable people.  Also, when people with dead spirits pray to the Father in the name of His Son, the one who answers their prayers is the imposter, the Fake Jesus.

Can a person whose spirit has been quickened STILL allow his or her soul to dominate?  Most decidedly YES. These are those who have a sensual relationship with Jesus.  When they speak of “being in His presence,” they are not satisfied unless they can feel the presence of God continually upon their flesh, and almost bi-polar in the spirit, they experience loads of ups and downs akin to spiritual mood swings.  They need to be taught how to walk by faith and not by sight or feeling.  Although the Holy Spirit dwells in their spirits, they often allow the soul to predominate because they do not understand the spirit life and the actions of the human spirit in co-action with God.

Seeking Deliverance?

27 May


By Pastor Pam Sheppard
Spiritual torment is a sign that if you believe you are born again, you are not, and you are the victim of a false conversion. In such cases, torment can be considered a blessing because it will wake you up to realize that God does not give a spirit of fear or torment, but His goal is that you have a sound mind.

So it stands to reason if your intrusive, even blasphemous thought, the accusing, condemning voices and the horrendous and shameful visions did not come from God, you know they did not origin with you, so the culprit has to be evil Spirits from Satan and from the spirit of the Antichrist.

RESCUE Deliverance Ministry is unique because we do not confront evil spirits until you have been strengthened with might in your inner man. So our strategy will prepare you to retrieve the  stolen  ground inch by inch, progressively and gradually.  After all, it is rare that the enemy took the ground suddenly.  It may seem so because you were not aware of the gradual and progressive manner the enemy infiltrated and begin stealing your soul, inch by inch.  Then one day it will seem as if he took  charge suddenly and quickly while you were not watching.

We warn those we help that on occasion, situations may appear to turn worse as you attempt to recover.  Nevertheless, if you  persist,  you  shall witness the adversary steadily losing his power. Your symptoms will  progressively decrease as the territory is increasingly regained. You will notice that your  mind, with its memory, imagination and reasoning powers, gradually becoming free so that you can use it again. But we warn you, not to become complacent and cease to fight to the end. In other words, just because your symptoms have abated does not mean you can relax.  For if you do so, you will provide  evil spirits with an opening and an advantage to  re-design his attack in the near future.

  Consequently, we advise you to continue to restore your control over your will power  until you are completely free.  Should you  stand on the foundation of the Lord’s victory of the cross and exercise your  mind to resist the enemy’s conditioning, you shall soon be delivered completely. You  shall become master of your  own mental life.

  1. What was stolen from you shall be restored.
  2. Your spiritual growth will be much deeper that what you originally had.
  3. No longer passive of mind, you will master self control, a fruit of the spirit, along with a much greater sense of peace than you had experienced in the past.
  4. If you have had a false conversion, now you have overcome all demonic hindrances  to being genuinely born again.

People Pleasing, the Flesh and Resisting the Devil

25 May

By Pastor Pam

Consider Jonah and his disobedience and sudden flight from God to a ship filled with men about to be shipwrecked because of Jonah’s folly. So to find out why they suddenly entered into a severe storm, the men on board cast lots and the lot fell to Jonah. Once Jonah was revealed, he confessed. You would have thought that the men would have immediately picked up Jonah and thrown him off of the ship. Instead, they tried to row faster. Yet when all human effort failed, they reluctantly threw Jonah overboard and peace immediately prevailed for them.

Why didn’t Jonah just jump overboard himself? Perhaps it was not physically possible and he needed someone to lift him up and cast him into the sea. My suspicion is that as it is in most cases, the people who are bringing storms into our lives are “all about self,” especially when their needs are being met by us.

However what I have learned by experience, is that once the cause of an attack has been uncovered or revealed to me, my next step is to refuse. Sometimes you have to refuse a condition or persuasion that is within your personality or in other words, a refusal may have to be made to your flesh.

For example, if you are a person that must be liked or approved of by others, you will have to refuse your flesh in this regard. If you can answer an emphatic “yes,” to the following statements as conditions of your own flesh, refusal will eventually be in order, if you are going to effectively resist the devil:

• I try to avoid being alone

• I let other people decide what to do.

• I get upset when people don’t include me in their activities;

• I am stressed if I don’t include other people in my plans;

• I am easily led;

• I hate any form of confrontation;

• I can’t stand being left out of things;

• I am emotionally dependent upon people.

So one way to crucify your flesh is by refusing to act out its nature.

Besides refusing your former nature without Christ, there are times when you also have to refuse your former perception or understanding as it relates to spiritual and religious matters. In fact, refusal is one of the ways that we cast down our imaginations, and every thought that is contrary to our obedience to the inner leadings of the Holy Ghost.

For example, if you have assumed that God would not allow the enemy to deceive you under any circumstances, to resist the devil that is assigned to you, you will have to refuse every thought connected to this false assumption. I personally know from experience that I can be deceived by the enemy because I have been, several times in fact.

Here is a personal example. It has been revealed to me that in 1996, I founded a church based upon the nature of my flesh and the leading of the religious demon assigned to me. Certainly, I believed that I was led by God at the time. However, with the discernment and the enlightenment that I have received over time, I can look back now with such understanding. What was confusing and complicated in 1996 is obvious and simple today.

Once my eyes were fully opened in 2008, I had to exercise refusal by closing the church doors. Certainly I had to face opposition to closing it. In fact, for a year, services continued in a members home, until her eyes were also opened and the doors of the church were permanently shut, never to open again.

As soon as I took the first step of refusal as I resisted the devil, the next revelation followed. Since the enemy was the secret force that led me to start this church in the first place, it logically and spiritually follows that each and every person who played a significant role in its operations was sent by the enemy also. In 13 years, several people were involved. Out of all of them, I have contact with two persons from the former church.

I published a e-book entitled Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry”.  If you have been in  bondage to people pleasing with deliverance workers who caused your spiritual and physical condition to worsen, you need this book.  If you have ever been in a deliverance session that lasted longer than 5 minutes, this book is for you.  If you have read a lot of books on deliverance ministry, this book will un-ravel the confusion and de-mystify how to cast out demons.

What Are the Ascended Masters After? Part 2

15 May

By Pastor Pam

 

Never, at any stage in history, has the scene been so fully set for the manipulation of a deception of global proportions through the work  of these fallen angels who are called  ascended masters. 

For the situation in which we find ourselves today is a  spiritual nightmare of immeasurable proportions.  It is more wacked out than the most imaginative science fiction novel. Through entering into an altered state of consciousness through yoga, TM, channeling, chanting, drugs, hypnosis, babbling in tongues, slain in the spirit, holy laughter  and such,  scores of people of all ages have opened their psychic centers or chakras to communicate with these  spirit-entities. The question is: Why?

The fallen angel called Mother Mary is over the Catholic Church and occult healing ministries while St. Germain’s specific part of the agenda is connected to freemasonry and the USA.  Ashtar seems to focus on the planned “evacuation” and Jesus Sananda Immanuel has already fulfilled his part of the assignment.  The organized church has become a dwelling place of religious demons under his command.  The one to watch is the ascended master called Maitreya, “the Master of Masters.”

Although he is called “the Christ,” Maitreya has primarily concentrated his efforts towards eastern religions and new age occultism, relegating the “Christian” emphasis into the hands of Sananda and Mother Mary. What Maitreya and ALL of them intend to prove is that Satan is god.  That is the bottom line.  God has 3 main attributes that no human being or angel has: He knows all, is all powerful, and is everywhere present.  Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent.  To be God, Satan would have to pull off this grand hoax.

So the plan is simple once you understand the motive. Man has now opened his latent psychic abilities through the ASC to hear from these entities.  Maitreya intends to pull off the grand hoax that he is the son of god.  So, I suspect that the religious demons assigned to each person on earth shall telepathically  send the exact same message at the exact same time, making it look like Maitreya, the son of god, and Sananda, the false prophet in their trinity with Satan, are God Almighty. The people will then be convinced to receive the Anti-Christ as God.

Whatever conclusion one reaches, the deception is clearly of satanic origin because of the occultic and anti-christian direction of the agenda.  From alien encounters  and genetic engineering, to reports of sexual copulation with  churchgoing women,  the entire charade is being masterminded by Satan in opposition to God, as part of a world wide establishment   of the enemy’s  delusion of having his  ‘kingdom’ on earth.”

The altered state of consciousness has  brought men and women into contact with fallen angels. It is all part of a well thought out plan  that has already taken over the organized church. Unless the people run out of these churches like bats let out of hell,  many will doubtless fall away, and the faith of many will be tested.

My goal is to  intelligently warn and  inform the elect of God,  so that they will not be overtaken by the element of surprise.  Secondly, it is my task to close down the psychic gateways that have been opened among God’s people and restore captives through sound counsel. Finally, I also strive  to edify the true Body to walk in the faith that the all powerful hand of God will prevail.

To know more about these matters, you need 4 of my six books.  “Faces of the Religious Demon, Come Out of Her, God’s People, The Fake Jesus and the New Idolatry. For books you can  CLICK HERE  to get a copy.

WHAT ARE THE ASCENDED MASTERS AFTER Part 1

14 May

Pastor Pam wrote:

It was not until the year 2006 that I had even heard the term ascended masters. I had been watching  a video clip of Cindy Trimm.  I did not know very much about her ministry, only that she was a friend of Juanita Bynum.  So to learn what she was all about, I visited her website.  The first thing I discovered was that she had a teacher’s ministry which strongly emphasized angels.  My eyebrow raised. 

Then I opened up another video clip and I was stunned, to say the least, as I watched hundreds of congregants simultaneously fall on top of each other, slain in the spirit like waves across the entire building.  I paid  attention to Trimm’s words at the moment that hundreds fell.  She proclaimed, “I thank you Father, that the spirit of the Ashtar has fallen upon the people.”

Troubled by the name “Ashtar,” I searched the scriptures and found the name of an old testament idol called “Ashteroth.”  Once led to pursue additional research, I googled “Ashtar.”  Shocked that a Christian evangelist would call on Ashtar in a prayer “to Father,” moments before almost the entire congregation was on the floor in a stupor, a google search opened the door to a plethora of occult websites dedicated to uplifting the teachings of cosmic beings that are referred to as “ascended” masters.

The dots are connected between the occult and the organized church.

I found that there are at least 50 ascended masters, perhaps even more.  Fifteen of them are ranked as primary players—fallen angels who first claimed to be aliens, sent to earth to prepare for the advent of a one world religon and to pave the way for the rule of the Anti-Christ.  Within my book, “the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” I present a detailed study of the top 5: Ashtar, Jesus Sananda Immanuel, Mother Mary, St. Germain and Maitreya.

As the leader, Maitreya holds the title of “Master of Masters.”

Through my research, I found that ET’s, aka aliens is who Ashtar first said that he was.  Ashtar made his first appearance to a human being of our generation in the early 50’s —a military man,  Col George Van Tassel, to warn this country about the misuse of atomic energy.  Eventually, Ashtar began to call himself “an ascended master.”

In “the Fake Jesus,” to figure out what these fallen angels are after, I searched for what they have been telling their occult followers.  Ashtar promises them that he and his command are prepared to evacuate and relocate our entire earth’s population to various “Mother Ships” in the heavens.  I happen to wonder where was Ashtar when all but 8 of the world’s inhabitants went down in the flood.

In the last few years, Ashtar has received worldwide support from international celebrity and talk show hostess Oprah Winfrey as she supports and even teaches from the occult book called “A New Earth.”The sheer magnitude surrounding the fact that Oprah is a teacher and a disciple of the author of this book speaks volumes.

It seems that the enemy is planning a fake rapture.

Why Reincarnation?

30 Apr

 

Pastor Pam Sheppard wrote:

reincarnation

Reincarnation was once a major component of my belief system when I was a New Age atheist. However once I became born again 40 years ago, it was the easiest false teaching to eliminate. Why? Because it nullifies the Lord’s purpose for His sacrifice for sin in His death on the cross. For why become sin for each human being if we all have additional lives available to correct past life karma. For as the bible says, it is appointed to each man ONCE to die, and then the judgment.

I watched the 1977 movie called Audrey Rose, a movie that strongly supports reincarnation. I missed this one as I was born again that very year. So watching this movie in 2013 was quite revealing. For it is obvious that Satan is in control of Hollywood to send his own subliminal messages.

The setting for the movie is New York City in the 70’s. Janice and Bill Templeton are Park Avenue types, living in a splendid apartment bigger than most houses, with thousands of dollars of art work on the ceilings. They have an 11-year-old daughter named Ivy who is a happy, gregarious child until she starts to have these trance like fits, where it looks like she is trying to escape from a fire.

In the meantime, Elliot Hoover makes contact with the Templeton’s about Ivy, telling them of how his four-year old daughter died in a car crash, where she was seen banging on the car windows screaming, surrounded by flames, shortly before the car her mother was driving, exploded, killing them both. Interestingly enough, this incident occurred just a few hours on the same day that Ivy was born. After the death of Audrey, Elliot reports that famous psychics revealed to him that Ivy is the reincarnation of his daughter Audrey. As confirmation, the psychics accurately described the lush penthouse apartment in great detail, including the fine art on the ceilings.

As the story unfolds, the Templeton’s take Elliot to court, accusing him of kidnapping Ivy. The defense lawyer took the position of defending reincarnation to prove that Elliot was correct about Ivy being the reincarnation of his daughter, Audrey Rose. At the trial, a hypnotist was brought in to perform a past-life regression on Ivy. It worked, but it got out of hand. Ivy became Audrey and the trauma of re-experiencing the fire was too great and Ivy died because the hypnotist did not call the girl by the name of Audrey. He kept saying “Ivy.”

I did some googling today and discovered some interesting information about the author of the book. In “the Case For Reincarnation,” by Joe Fisher, the screenplay “Audrey Rose” was inspired by an actual incident in the author’s life. The author heard ragtime piano being played by his six-year-old son who never had a music lesson. The boy told his father that his fingers were touching the keys on their own. This experience was the catalyst that directed the author’s thoughts toward the possibility of reincarnation.

I am sure that many were awed by this movie and some even became believers in reincarnation as a result of watching it. Yet there is a simple explanation. If the case of Audrey Rose had been true and not fiction, here is how I would explain it.

First of all, even bona-fide psychic mediums or channels receive information from demons. So Elliot was deceived by them to believe on reincarnation. The demons know how his daughter died. They saw it and probably arranged and even caused the car accident that killed his family in the first place. They worked on his emotions, causing him to change his belief system and to appear and act “strange.” They set him up to find Ivy by using the psychics.

Somehow, Ivy’s chakras were opened. When the kundalini energy is released and the person enters an altered state through dreaming, very often the person feels like he or she is burning from within. When the hypnotist took Ivy into a much deeper altered state, as the fire sensation intensified, so did the terror and so Ivy died of intense fear. Her heart stopped.

In this end time season, the enemy needs every human being’s chakras to be opened so that the Antichrist can perpetuate the biggest spiritual fraud—–EVER!!!!

How the Influence to Follow Sananda Occurs

28 Apr

Pastor Pam Sheppard wrote:

The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth asked an interesting question.  How many believers would He find on earth when He returns.. The rhetorical answer can be inferred to be  “not many.” Why?  Because of false conversions.

A false conversion occurs in the following instances:

1.  A person makes a decision to “accept” Jesus and then ends up boasting, “I am saved because I chose to follow Jesus.”  Often this person has repeated a sinner’s prayer or responded to a minister’s invitation to “walk forward” at the close of the sermon.  There is also no evidence of repentance.  Nor is their evidence  that the believer understood either the cross or the resurrection of Jesus Christ at the time of the alleged salvation experience.

2. A person assumes because his or her family are professing, churchgoing Christians, and since he or she has attended church from birth, that he or
she is “saved.”

3. A Charismatic/Pentecostal person has sought the Holy Ghost through the manifestation of the speaking in tongues.  Since the believer actually had a “tongue manifestation,” an assumption is made that the person is saved.

What I have uncovered through deliverance counseling, is this.

cover_the fake Jesus_new

When a counterfeit birth has taken place, the devil steps in, represented by a fallen angel who now calls himself “Jesus Sananda Immanuel.”  You can either obtain a copy of my book, “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” or google with Sananda’s name, and you will find that Sananda claims that he has infiltrated the entire organized church. Consequently, when prayers and worship are offered, it is Sananda, and not Jesus Christ of Nazareth who is unknowingly appealed to.  So in other words, the believer is actually practicing idolatry without realizing what has occurred and who he or she is worshiping.

If I were a betting person, I would put all of my savings on the expectation that 90% of the people who sincerely believe that they are born again fall in one of the three categories cited. Yet there is a fourth category. It includes those who have had supernatural experiences which included sin, the cross, godly sorrow with the bodily resurrection of the Lord either minimized, assumed, or not a part of the experience AT All.  This category adds another 5% to those who have had a false conversion.  The other 5 % were born again BEFORE they went to church, either in their homes, at an airport, etc. 

256x256_fit_one_bestfit (69)My point is: THEY DID NOT BECOME BORN AGAIN INSIDE A CHURCH.  If they believe they did, then they are deceived. 

How many of the people who have had a false conversion are of the elect of God?  I don’t know.  I suspect between 25-75%.  The rest are damned anyway because God did not choose them.

Examining whether or not YOU are in the faith is scriptural.  So check out II Cor 13:5.  If you want help with this very important task, fill out the contact form below.  Provide a detailed description of  the day you believe you got born again in the comment box.
