How to Witness To Religious Churchgoers: Who Are The Birds?

11 Jan

By Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

One of the reasons that makes  witnessing to churchgoers both difficult and unpleasant  is because  they have not yet heard from the Lord in a revelatory way.  Most of the religious  believe that if your argument is not bible-based, then it is not worth listening to.  So, a way to get through to them is using the scriptures in red.  In other words, “What did the Lord Jesus say?”  Use the Lord’s own words to reveal the truth to them.

The Lord  Jesus presented a group of kingdom of heaven parables, most of which He did not explain, but he left some clues. One of the clues as depicted in Matthew 13, is the birds. Therefore, when you’re keeping things very general, your focus is to  rely on what the Lord said, what the Lord shared. Consequently,  ask your religious churchgoer,” what do you think that parable means?”  Listen to what they say. You also  ask questions. First of all  Ask them, “what do the birds represent?”  They won’t know.  So remaining focused and patient, you highlight   the verse which most people know by taking him, her or them  to the parable of the mustard seed  that grew into a large tree.

The trunk of that tree is the Catholic church, and the branches of that tree that come out of that trunk are the plethora of Protestant denominations and non-­denominations that have been formed since the 1500’s. . Protestantism  are the branches of that tree. There should be no argument that the tree is  the system of the Institutional Church. So in this context, you can also clarify that the Body of Christ is not the Institutional Church where believers gather together for Sunday morning worship. So it will be relatively easy  to distinguish the difference between the Body of Christ and the Institutional Church. It follows that  you should be able to get agreement that  the body of Christ consists of every born again person who ever lived, who’s living now, and who ever will live. Clearly,  the body of Christ and  the institution of church and religion are not the same.

Once these matters are clarified, then continue to interpret  the mustard seed  parable.  Next consider the birds, nestling in the branches. Now you can make the point  that the non-Catholic denominations have the devil as well as the Catholics.   The trunk is the Catholic church! The people who started the Protestant churches were  themselves  originally Catholics,  believers  who left Catholicism who started a whole new branch of religion. Your major point is this.   the Catholics are the trunk of the tree and  Protestants are the branches. . In the Protestants we have the denominations and the non-­denominations. Simple. Keep it simple.

Now, some believe  that the Catholic church is of God , but it’s the branches that spoiled things. Others believe  that God set up the branches , therefore  it’s the Catholic church that is demonic.  “Oh, forget about the Catholics, they’re all  about witchcraft, with their worshipping the saints and all that, they bigtime got the devil. But the denominations, I mean, these are the ones, this is the true church.” No. Make it plain that one comes out of the other. In fact, there is a movement going forth today to unite the Protestants back with the Catholics.

Then ask the question, ” who are the birds?”  THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!

Once  Jesus used a symbol, it makes sense that the symbol  will have a similar meaning when  He uses it again. In Matthew 13, known as the parable of the Sower,  the Lord is metaphorically discussing the reasons why some hearers of the word do not become  born again.  Jesus shared that the one who hears the word by the wayside do not become born again because the birds come and eat the seed.  Later on in that chapter, the Lord interprets His parable to the apostles, revealing that the birds are wicked beings. They are evil spirits: fallen angels and demons.

So, go back and look at the mustard seed parable concerning the birds in the branches of the institutional church system. Keeping things simple, if the birds were demons in the parable of the Sower , than Jesus is  giving us a clue that the birds up in the branches of the mustard seed parable are evil spirits  also. So if the birds up in the branches are demons. believe me, the Catholic church is also run by fallen angels. In other words, in His office as a Prophet,  the Lord revealed that Fallen angels and demons would one day be  in control of  the Institutional Church.

Perhaps you will be asked if you believe  God ever been involved with Institutional  Church? To answer this question  refer to the  first two or three chapters of the book of Revelation, where a message is sent from the Lord , not to the church, but to the angel of the church. Clearly,  God’s  angels play an important role in the operation of the Institutional Church, and seeing as it was a Roman emperor–Constantine— who started the Institutional Church in 313AD, it doesn’t take too much common sense to realize that the angels who are in control of the Institutional Church today are fallen, they’re not God’s angels.

From the book of Revelation, God’s angels were involved in the churches at  Ephesus, Smyrna, and Philadelphia.  For example,  point out that the Churches at Pergamos and Thyatira   reads a lot like the Catholic Church as Laodicea clearly represents the Protestant churches of  our times. So it would be beneficial if you spent with those seven letters.

Churchgoers, both traditional and charismatic tend to leap from topic to topic.  In this case, you must stay focused by making only a few points. .  The major point you should make is God’s relationship to the institutional church according to the words of Jesus in His parables and in the book of Revelation. The average committed churchgoer is going to defend THEIR local  church and their pastor., with defenses like  “oh, well my church doesn’t do what these charismatic churches do, they don’t ask for tithes, they don’t teach this, they don’t teach that.”

You have to point out that certainly there are righteous, sincere people in some of the churches, both pastors and laity. The question is “Do you want to be in a church that regardless of how committed and faithful the people seem, their organization is run by fallen angels and demons?”  The birds in the branches is the bottom-line to consider!  Until a religious, deceived person comes to the realization that Satan, the god of this world, is in control of their beloved church edifice and system , is it really safe to worship there?  The next question to address is “what about the plagues that the Lord mentions in Rev 18:4 when He warns “Come out of Her My People, less you partake of Her sins and receive of Her plagues.”

In fact, where are God’s people for the most part?  Let the churchgoer answer that question.   The very first place even an atheist will think of is “the Institutional Churches. “

This is all very simple.  The enemy keeps the confusion complicated so that churchgoers will protest with all kinds of explanations, rationalizations  and excuses for continuing to do what the Lord has warned them not to do.

HOW WITCHES AND WARLOCKS MANIPULATE OUR DREAMS

3 Jan

By Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

As  I continue to read the book of a former grandmaster occultist from  Nigeria, I am amazed at the power of the name of Jesus Christ of  Nazareth over ALL the power of the enemy. “Erik emphatically reports that  none of his nefarious practices ever worked against a true Christian  but only what he refers to as WEAK Christians.  In my estimation, a weak  Christian is no Christian at all.  This is an unsaved person who has  been duped.  The reality is that he or she has a form of godliness that  denies the power of the Holy Ghost.

Anyway, since dreams and  dream interpretation have been a specialty of mine for years, I was  interested in what Eric had to report about them.  He reported that he  manipulated  those under his control by sending them demons to disturb  their dreams. In anticipation of your questions, Eric did not explain HOW  this was done.  What he explains are his various initiations by  providing lots of details. For this reason, I provide no identifying  info about Eric’s book.  It is simply too graphic.

For the  purpose of this post, I simply report that Eric revealed that there  are different categories of manipulations that witches and warlocks use  to manipulate dreaming.  Nightmares are generally the result of demons.  Eric does not explain HOW this is done, but simply reports that he sent  demons to people to create dream experiences to bring a dreamer’s life  into a catastrophe, such as “bad luck” in business, health, marriage,  relationships, finances, to mention but a few. Through an occult art he  called, Putanivigrah, Eric projected demons against “weak Christians”.

These demons used dreams to pursue and fight against the person to whom  they are sent.  Whether a witch was behind it or not, I know from  personal experience what demons try to do to a person while they are  sleep.  It gives new meaning to the children’s prayer, “now I lay me  down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.”For example, demons will  come into your sleep for the soul intention of weakening your will to  live, while you are in the altered state of sleep.

In fact, I have had  several dreams like this myself. So when a client comes to me for  deliverance counseling, one of the first forms of information I seek is  a presentation of the client’s dreams.  From listening to their dreams,  I can see the agenda of the demons in my client’s life.  Most of  my spiritual deception came through dreams sent to me by religious  demons. Each time I married the wrong man, a demon gave me a dream of  the man shortly before I met him. Demons use dreams to make various  suggestions that they try to set me up to follow.  And a demon that I  call “the spirit of death” has tried to cause me to die in my sleep.

They do this by pretending to be a dead person that you may have known  well, respected, or even loved. In the dream, they want you to follow  them with your spirit. The goal? Your death in your sleep.  Here  is the scenario.  Clothed in appearance and even in voice like “the dead  one,” the demon will create the dream. The intent is for you to “follow  the dead person.” Demons have tried this strategy on me time and time  again.  Here is an example.  My deceased father and his dead girlfriend  are taking me to the Bahamas and my father is paying for the trip. Cy  Sheppard never spent much money on me when he was alive, and the demon  KNEW that.  So in the dream, since it was a free trip, I was eager to  go.

However, whether it be my angel or my own spirit, I can not find  their hotel room.  I roam around Nassau Bahamas, a place that in the  natural, I am familiar with, but I can’t find my father and his dead girlfriend.  I believe that if I  did, I would have died in my sleep.  The spirit of death is a  demon whose assignment is to take us out before our time, either through  accident, suicide or homicide. When we are sleep is when we are quite  vulnerable. So the Lord has assigned an angel to guard us against the  Eric’s of this world. We must be careful not to provoke our angel with  lies, sin, or pride. That is another subject. DO NOT PROVOKE YOUR ANGEL.

My  purpose is to prepare the elect of God to recognize and overcome strong  religious delusion that pervades the last of the last days, through  COUNSELING, CONSULTATION,TRAINING, MENTORING AND THE PUBLICATION OF  BOOKS, ARTICLES AND STUDY GUIDES. My best work on this subject is the New Idolatry, the latest of the 6 books.

Religious Demons Don’t Discriminate Between Saved and Unsaved

24 Dec

pamsheppardpublishing

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

Some may think that to be born again stops all deception. If you have been reading my books and blogs or watching my videos, then you realize that when I was in the occult, I dealt with spirits outright. I had what was called spirit guides or guardians to whom I communicated every day. I called, they answered. They called, I answered. Once I got born again, the spirits changed their tactics, to try to cause me to believe I was communicating with God and for 25 years, they were successful.

I REPEAT. RELIGIOUS SPIRITS DECEIVED ME AS A SAVED CHRISTIAN FOR 25 years!!!!

First, an entity imitating God sent me three dreams that told me the same thing. I was urged to find Rev. Smith. Pushed and compelled by unseen forces, finally I followed their instructions and I found him. Immediately, I joined his church…

What You Don’t Know About Deliverance Ministries

27 Nov

Deliverance Academy

According to Merriam Webster’s definition of deliverance, deliverance is the act of delivering someone or something. It is the state of being delivered, especially, LIBERATION or RESCUE.

One of the big problems happening is that many are seeking deliverance, often from demons and other forms of bondage, yet most deliverance ministries lack the true ability to bring about liberation. Instead the captives condition may actually worsen, especially with instant attempts to deliver the person without diligently creating modules and steps to prepare for deliverance.

There’s also countless other problems, for example a big one is that the person conducting the deliverance may not even have the ability to do so in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. This is due to untold millions that have false conversionsPastor Pam Sheppard thoroughly explains why all this is happening and much more in her book, Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry

E-book Excerpts: The New Idolatry

24 Nov

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

The New Idolatry:  Charismatic Witchcraft, Deliverance and Other. Counterfeits.  (Pg 95-96)

 

What are the plagues?

The worst plague is a curse of spiritual blindness caused by delusion and demonic deception. The worst of the worst is to be duped into believing that you are going to heaven, and to die and find yourself in hell for eternity. For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world yet loses his soul? (Matthew 16:25) The fact that countless people have been indoctrinated into the “I accepted Jesus”   practice—also known as the “make a decision for Christ gospel, “ the worst abomination of them all.

For this form of idolatry distorts the word of God to such an extent, than I am willing to estimate that 85% of churchgoers believe that they are saved, and they are not. Counterfeit spiritual births at the altars of God are the absolute worst plague, the fruit of idolatry. This horrendous sign is pervasive throughout the organized church worldwide—a wide gaping hole for demonic infestation and other horrendous plagues to enter with ease.

So it follows that plagues that can destroy the soul are actually worse than those that debilitate the body only. Sickness and disease are certainly among the plagues, but there are several others. In our times, there are plagues that were not around in other generations: HIV/AIDS, crack, violence like drive by shootings, missing children, the domestic violence cycle and so many more.

Addiction of any kind is a plague primarily due to the dysfunction within the human will. As previously addressed, besides the mind and the emotions, the soul also consists of the will. Whenever the human will is in any kind of bondage, a plague is in operation which follows that the soul is seriously damaged.

Excerpt From “Faces of the Religious Demon.” Pg 89-91

22 Nov

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard

The Narcissistic Personality and Spiritual Strangeness

When bordering on mental illness, a phrase that I have coined called “spiritual strangeness”can manifest in deep depression, the hearing of voices, visual appearances that are invisible to others and manifestations of narcissistic personality disorders of different varieties. (Where the demon of Jezebel is concerned, at the core of the mental illness is a pride system that reinforces false or counterfeit religious beliefs and practices. Psychic phenomena like telekinesis and astral travel emanate from the witchcraft side of the face of Jezebel.

As such, when supernatural manifestations are present, the spirit of Jezebel is generally the lead demon. The Jezebel demon is also at the root of self absorption, where legalism, perfectionism and self righteousness will progressively debilitate
the soul. I suspected that previously mentioned 92 year old Bertha was also personality disordered, particularly as it relates to her perfectionism and the confusion and despondency she experienced when even mildly challenged or suspected of being in error. Although Bertha manifested symptoms of perfectionism, a more classic influence of the face of Jezebel is more clearly evident in a professing Christian whose name I have changed to Pearl.

Claiming to be a doctor of holistic medicine, Pearl contacted me by email with a rather desperate and impertinent cry for a deliverance from an alleged physical infirmity that she believed to be demonic. She reported that she was without any physical strength, continuing to cough, vomit and remained without appetite. By virtue of her New Age profession alone, I was immediately aware that the spirit of witchcraft was definitely unmistakable. Moreover, the fact that Pearl professed faith in Jesus Christ while simultaneously misquoting the Lord frequently, I suspected that I was dealing with not only Jezebel, but perhaps the spirit of the Anti-Christ as well.

For example, Pearl views herself as “Christ-like”, not at all considering that her 30 year practice of homeopathic healing is an occult practice, nor would she consider
that her own beliefs could in any way be demonic. Working with a captive bound to the Jezebel spirit is no easy task. The complexity of the situation is that when helpless and in the middle of a crisis, the captive is usually cooperative and approachable. Due to the urgency of Pearl’s situation and the importunity of her emails and her phone calls, I overruled the steps and stages of my usual procedure. I confronted the demons by telephone in order to bring Pearl some immediate relief.

By reversing the process, I cast out the demon of torment first so that Pearl would be free to work on her other issues and problems. For example, her adult son had threatened to commit suicide if Pearl did not stop interfering in his life. As is the case with this personality type and the Jezebel spirit, Pearl’s life is one of chaos, instability, confusion and broken relationships. Once I exercised the authority of the Name of Jesus over the demon of torment, the spirit of Jezebel and the spirit of the Anti-Christ were clearly exposed, discernible in Pearl’s transparent self love and obvious sense of superiority. Pearl obtained immediate relief.

Interpreting her well being as a sign of a complete deliverance, Pearl backed off from any further counseling, disregarding and opposing all of my suggestions and comments that she was not at all “delivered.” With much debate and contention, Pearl conceded that “the Lord DID use me to set her free,” but she vehemently refused to address those underlying characteristics that permeate her very proud personality. Considering the length of time that she has been narcissistic, it is only logical that she would tenaciously defend her own self concept. Therefore, in Pearl’s mind, she is “as SHE says she is”—loving, giving, honorable, forthright, righteous, selfless, the perfect mother, superior—to name but a few.

It is apparent to me that Pearl is one of the unsaved professing to be saved. Notwithstanding, in Pearl’s mind, she is “Christ-like” even though she defied several of His words and His ways as evidenced in her emails. Once relieved of torment, the contradictions between Pearl’s actual character and her idealized image of herself became so obvious that it was amazing that she could not perceive it with her own self proclaimed intelligence.

On the contrary, Pearl is consistent in her ability to ignore the unconcealed. In fact, Pearl would only accept the reality of demons in her life as being sent to her through the jealous witchcraft practices of others, never once considering that she could be in any way responsible for her own torment. This inherent blind spot coupled with her adamant resistance to authority is the most serious obstacle to a complete deliverance. Furthermore, within her emails are numerous statements that would cause a knowledgeable Christian to seriously question her salvation.

Unwilling to be broken in spirit, the religious demon’s motive is self evident. Pearl’s solution is to do away with all demonic doorways of a personal nature by declaring herself “above it all.”Pride has hindered Pearl from taking a realistic assessment of those un-submitted areas of her soul. As Paul wrote, “God resists the proud but give grace to the humble.” (James 4:7)

To Oprah and Others: Psychic Power Is God’s Power Peverted!

18 Nov

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard

 

Today I was happy to see Oprah Winfrey  campaigning  for Stacey Abrams for Governor of Georgia.  Oprah is at her best uplifting  a political cause that is of the flesh and is not spiritual.  I could certainly relate to her statement “I am an independent woman!”   Right on, Sister  Oprah.   Urging people to vote independently is a good thing which I support. Uplifting all women in this hour is certainly  in season.

Yet I recall what the Lord said:  “That which is flesh IS flesh.  but that which is spirit is SPIRIT!” I wholeheartedly support Oprah’s views in the flesh as they relate to politics and women’s issues.  However her spiritual views are occult. I could even hear in her campaign speech her spiritual belief in ancestor worship. Christians should not forget that Oprah is deceived into embracing the new age’s teaching of Christ consciousness.  Here is the truth.   Psychic power   is God’s power, PERVERTED by the devil.  It’s  CONTAMINATED,  DECEPTIVE.  Christ consciousness is a devilish religion., DEADLY IN ITS CONSEQUENCES!

LET’S BRING THIS CONVERSATION directly to YOU! Are YOU one of those “spiritual people” who dreams about the future, “and it happens?” Do you think of yourself as a person with “second sight” or even a psychic?  Were you steeped in the occult and whatever the circumstances, you found yourself embracing Christ?  I can relate because I can personally answer each of these 3 questions in the affirmative myself.

After 41 years in the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I have learned a lot from my mistakes.  For even though He snatched me out of Satan’s hands on March 29, 1977, the enemy continued to pursue me, changing his tactics to religious deception, toward successfully causing me to assume that every supernatural message I received was from God. I was duped for 25 years!!!!

Having overcome deception, the most outstanding truth in my  warfare arsenal, is this.  If  prior to your embracing of Christianity,  you have had even the slightest background in new Age occultism, Eastern religions  or witchcraft,  YOU ARE A TARGET FOR DECEPTION.  Furthermore, if you have  accepted even one message from Satan as if it came from the Holy Spirit, you are a candidate for a deeper, more dangerous message in your near future. Be aware that the religious demon assigned to you will capitalize on your “psychic powers” as he deceives you with counterfeits of  the gifts of the Spirit.

If you are one who prefers to work on your own, I have written ebooks and developed courses from those books that will benefit you beyond measure.  If you would prefer the personal touch, call 888-818-1117 to set up a telephone session or complete the contact form below:

Why the Lord Often Chooses the Worst People

17 Nov

By Pastor Pam of Pam Sheppard Ministries

 

 

According to normal  standards including my own, for God to choose me either for salvation or for ministry defies human understanding.  Here is the reason.  I was an atheist the first 33 years of my life. In fact, when I was 3, I refused to believe in Santa Claus! As a child, I stood against parents and grandparents, refusing to attend ANY church. My father’s mother called me a heathen and she was correct!!!!  By the time I was 33, I had attended church ONE time for non-religious reasons, and even then,  I ran out of there because I was extremely uncomfortable to say the least.

So you tell me! Moses was raised an Egyptian and had to go into hiding for 40 years because he killed an Egyptian.  As Moses stood before Pharoah commanding that he let God’s people go, I too am one person, standing up against the entire institutional church worldwide with the same agenda.  COME OUT OF HER, GOD’S PEOPLE.  DON’T RECEIVE HER PLAGUES!

Moses only addressed  Pharoah and the nation of Egypt. I don’t speak to the IC directly.  I speak to the elect  of God who are connected to  the entire religious system worldwide, some of whom  are  members of churches that are considered both righteous and good. Those who will hear me are a few, most of whom have already heard from God themselves.  For them, I will be the voice of confirmation. Even for the doubters, the confused  and even  the scoffers, I hit the proverbial nail on the head which is “Satan and his minions have already taken over the IC.  That is why you must leave!

Moses had a rod.  I have a book “Come out of Her, God’s People,”  and more books.  I also have the anointed word of my mouth spoken over the telephone to offer prayer for those who are blinded by the world  and to  cast  out of demons by phone—-one person at a time, one demon at a time, one bondage at a time—anywhere in the world.

 

In this book, I present autobiographical info in the first 8 chapters. In the next 5 chapters, I reveal concrete spiritual and physical reasons as to why you need to come out.  My books are like a series:  Faces of a Religious Demon puts meat on the reason why you should “come out” with profiles and examples, the New Idolatry exposes the work of the seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, Be Delivered from Deliverance Ministry lays out one of the practices of seducing spirits, the Fake Jesus identifies who the fallen angels are and what they have been doing for centuries, and the Church of the End-time Zombies puts it ALL together, with strategy, agenda, and solutions.

If I were God, I would not have chosen me for such a task because I have no religious history.  It turns out that this is one of the most  important reasons why He chose me for this work.  Even though I served for 25 years as both a pastor and an evangelist in the IC system, I never incorporated traditions and practices into my soul.  Therefore, my detox was both quick and minimal.

So boldly and without reservation, I am called, chosen and sent to speak to the enemy on behalf of the saints to command the seducing spirits to  LET YOU GO!!!! If you are of the elect of God, I am sent TO YOU!!!!!

Why and How Does An Ordained Minister of 25 Years Leave the Church?

27 Oct

92EAE0CE-F67A-4BAB-AAEF-3D8245C5C2AB

 

My personal testimony of how I came to leave  the church is in the first chapters of  my book “Come Out of Her, God’s People”.  Most of my life I have been  open and transparent, caring less about what others had to say about me.    Lately,   I have become quite private and much more guarded.  I suspect that its a matter of  “increased wisdom.”  I personally wonder today if perhaps  in “Come Out of Her, God’s People,”   I may have  shared way  too much about my intimate  life.   In fact, I recall a few rather ignorant, jealous , ineffectual hypocrites attempting to take  advantage of my openness in order   to slander me.  It did not work. Actually,  it is difficult to  slander a person who is not bound by the world’s religious standards. Even so,  I am more guarded than I used to be.   Nevertheless, since readers  have reported  how much my testimony helped them,  I don’t regret writing the book. 

 In regards to when and how to leave the institutional church,  it has been  my experience that the Holy Spirit will inform you when it is time for you to make your move.  In fact, if I had not heard from Him in 2003, without a doubt, I  would still be there.  Why?  Because the denomination left me alone  to my own devices and as a result,  I was enjoying myself doing my own thing in ministry.  I was deceived into believing that  I had the best of both the denominational and the charismatic church worlds.

So at the season that  the Holy Spirit led me out of church, I was pastoring a work that I had founded myself in 1996 for about 8 years at that time.  Therefore,  it had never crossed my mind to leave the church because in my own mind, I viewed myself as “there but not there.”  So within my rational mind, it would be a mistake for  a minister of the gospel to leave the church  system after 25 years of faithful service.  I was not about to rock the boat on my own, as such an action was way  too  preposterous an idea–absolutely inconceivable.  I was settled and comfortable in the denomination, in spite of the fact that I had never really been embraced with open arms. Not only did I have  spiritual covering from a well-respected denomination that  left me to my own devices,   I also had almost complete independence to bring forth Pentecostal, word of faith teachings in a cold and dry denominational setting.

So what happened? How was I led out? 

First of all, I had a dream. A very clear, significant dream where the Lord actually appeared and spoke to me. I never saw His face, only his feet and the back of His robe.   I wanted to believe it was the devil because I didn’t like what I heard and saw in the spirit.  I was called by name. the Spirit said “Pam, I cannot use you in this place. You are a light— hidden under a bed.  You MUST leave.  But let them PUT you out!”

Put ME out?  This MUST be the devil, I thought to myself.  They can’t put me out.  I have been a faithful servant in this denomination for 25 years.!!!!

Well, I did not have long to wait. I was at the Y, doing my  afternoon lap swim  when my pregnant daughter came waddling in and screaming “they are after you, Ma! The denomination is investigating you.” I got out  of the pool, sat on its side and listened to my daughter’s emotional report.  She had run into the proverbial grapevine.

Yet this was not gossip.  It was true. My  dream was confirmed in less than a week. The denomination was setting me up  to PUT ME OUT. A hidden religious enemy,  a ministerial collleague targeted my website.  At the time,  I was exposing error among the mega preachers.  I was not running a smear campaign but where there was error, I was boldly calling names. The denomination feared that I would cause some multi-millionaire to sue them.  Ironically, an enemy that I had personally mentored had   secretly planted the seed of fear in the Bishop’s ear.  Since he never liked me in the first place,  the Bishop grabbed that seed and ran with it. Under the Bishop’s wishes, my colleagues in the district voted to  take  my name off the rolls, under the pretense that I did not send them the annual dues of $660.  I did not send it because I was purposefully facilitating my leaving by not showing up and also  not sending them the money!!!! I did what the Lord said.  I LET THEM PUT ME OUT!

It took almost a year from the day I had the dream in early July 2003 for  the denomination to remove  my name from its rolls on  June 25,  2004.  I remember the day I was “put out” because I had a  startling dream that very  morning. I saw my head under the chopping block. I was beheaded. With that dream, it was revealed to me  that I have the same ministry as John the Baptist: Like the Prophet John, my job is  to preach  repentance and prepare the way for the Lord’s SECOND coming.

Anyway, I still had my church that I had founded.  Since  the denomination  had not embraced my church, the Bishop   had no authority or power to close it.  So I continued leading my church, expecting the Lord to send me to another church affiliation or denomination.

Various sects and word of faith churches made me some offers. However,  it was quite clear to me that all they wanted was my money as well as  my attendance at their various meetings and conferences  so that they could obtain MORE money via conference fees.  These mega ministries also planned  to tax  my church and take for themselves a hefty percentage of our donations each month.  We were small and poor. I could not rob my own congregation to send   hard-earned dollars to an aloof, uncaring mega preacher’s ministry, just to pay to sit on the front row of some televised  conference.

So I waited 3 years. My  next sign  was more powerful than a dream.  I was wide awake.  I heard a voice in my head ask me this question, “Pam. would you put curtains up at the windows of a condemned building?”  I looked around to see if someone was there,  but I was alone.  I answered in my head “no.’  The voice continued. He talked for what seemed a long time.  Then He said “Pam. You are planning to travel around the world to conduct deliverance training seminars in any church that will open its doors to you.” I answered, “Yes.!”   I had already  been to a church in Lawrenceville Ga and one in Bermuda.

The voice then said “Well. Pam. Conducting seminars in any church is like putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building, I have already judged HER.”

Now I did not want to believe that my 25 years in ministry was full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.  So I tried the spirits for one year.  Out of it came the book called “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.  Even more books followed.  One conversation with the Spirit of God in 2007  led to a total of four more books, well over 1000 pages!!!

So for the next 14 years, I have gladly put 25 years of religious acts without power behind me.  In 2008, I  closed the church that I had founded after 12 years.  I simply put my religious past and all of  its fake fruit behind me,  moved forward, baggage free– following the leading of the Holy Ghost.  For the last 14 years, my life has been filled with peace, revelation,  real power  and wondrous anticipation.
