Spiritual Growth via Everyday Struggles

10 Jul

Challenges on Earth are inescapable. The death of a loved one; loss of a job; a serious illness; terrorist attacks; and a plethora of unplanned disasters are only the beginning.  These consistent, everyday struggles generate an onslaught of strong emotions and a fixation on uncertainty.

Resilience is the process of adapting to adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress. These things may derive from familial strife, health issues, stressors of the family or workplace. At first, stress could prove overwhelming. That said, that doesn’t mean that a person cannot learn to cope. After all, emotional pain is synonymous with living. More so, it is more common in people who have suffered major trauma in their lives. Despite seemingly a personality-trait, resilience is actually something that is taught by difficulty.

In short, resilience is something that is earned. 

For someone leaving the institutional church, spiritual resilience is significant to develop when numerous untruthful teachings are revealed. It may prove overwhelming like someone pulling a carpet underneath a person’s feet. The process may hurt like unpeeling bandages off a raw wound. However, in the end, it’s necessary. As testimonies in God’s hand, where’s the triumph in our lives without defeat?

As Psalm 27:1 states, “The LORD is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?” So, we have nothing to fear even at the most difficult of obstacles or the severe of disaster.  

Try…Fail…Try…Fail, the only true failure is when we truly stop trying. When we cannot rise with our own power, we reach out to God and to fellowship to steady our stance to walk again. That’s the power of faith, it allows you to manage forward, despite the wind attempting to blow you backward. 

People cannot prevent bad things from happening. However, they can control how they respond. At RESCUE, we teach our followers how to take deceive actions to overcome our darkest, spiritual hour. We mold a spiritual prisoner into a spiritual commander. We turn a religious follower into a conceptual leader. We take the fractured pieces of our people, and we mend them to help guide others on the narrow path of faithful, spiritual resilience.

If you need a hand to hold on the road of spiritual resilience, the RESCUE fellowship group is available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/rescue/.  They taught me how even the most tormented of people can find a way to peace, myself included. If you require special one-on-one attention, Pastor Pam offers phone-counseling sessions at 888-818-1117. At RESCUE, we call to the broken! Take back your free-will today! 

Social Media Ushering a New Era of Contacting Evil Spirits: When Children Practice Divination

6 Jun

In the twenty-first century, smartphones and tablets have given children unlimited access to the world. By a moment’s instant, a child may jump from a simple, cartoon movie to sinister, horror film. Then, to boot, they can watch a video that coaxes viewers into harmful, countless behaviors like swallowing raw cinnamon and poisonous Tide-Pods. With that in mind, however, parental controls may not detect the videos that leave children susceptible to the supernatural. Nowadays, adults and children alike are unknowingly inviting evil spirits into their homes by performing divination witnessed on Youtube and other social media platforms.

Divination games were played before the arrival of the smartphone. However, the arrival of social media has popularized divination games beyond their previous vintage notoriety. In 2015, the hashtag #CharlieCharlieChallenge propagated the usage of a pseudo-Ouija board originating from Spain. Formerly known as el Juego de la Lapicera (Direct translation: “The Game of the Pencil” or simply “The Pencil Game”), the original “Charlie” game involves two players holding two pencils in the shape of a square, pressing the ends of their pencils against the other player’s. Similar to an Ouija board, the players would move their pencils without conscious control.

Although, the modern version of “Charlie” differs as a two-pencil game. Two pencils (or pens) are used to create a grid (with sectors labeled “yes” and “no.”) From there, players may invite a spirit named “Charlie” to answer their questions. The overlaying pencil is expected to rotate to specify Charlie’s answers. The first question generally involves whether Charlie is willing to play or presenting themselves to speak.

Skeptics point out that the overlaying pencil is shakily balanced onto the midpoint of another pencil so that it can rotate very easily from heavy breathing, gutsful wind, or uneven surfaces.

That said, when actual spirits begin to play the game with the kids, trouble starts.

My younger sister was approached to play a version of “Charlie” with a Bloody Mary twist by an older neighbor. (For those unaware, the game “Bloody Mary” involves players lighting candles, spinning around a set number of times, calling “Bloody Mary.”) As my younger sister was five years old, she didn’t understand the dangers of divination games. So, she played along. (We’ll call her Eliza.)

From memory, I recall Eliza and my neighbor spinning around, calling upon Charlie, and sometimes throwing Bloody Mary into the mix. They wanted to get scared. They wanted a response.

My sister certainly got a response.

For the next five years, Eliza experienced supernatural voices and unexplainable shadows to a point where she normalized them. It wasn’t until the voices became alluring and condemning that she realized something was wrong. Originally, subtle whispers became much louder. They’d call her name and hastily protest “No!” to positive things like her reading therapy or eating her favorite foods.

Here are steps to rectify demonic torment caused by divination games like the Charlie Charlie Challenge, Bloody Mary, and countless others. (Eliza has followed these rules and experienced relief in a week!)

1.    Verbally renounce playing the game by using its title. (You can say that you do not wish to play the game anymore, you have no more interest in the paranormal, and you revoke any invitation made to evil spirits.)

2.    Confront any lingering voices. (Whatever they say, tell them that you are not listening. They cannot manipulate or control you. Demons hate pursuing people with strong willpower!)

3.    Eliminate ‘religious practices.’ (Holy water, anointing oil, salt boundaries, rosary prayers, prayers of protection, Bible verses, etc.) Those things do not work. The evil spirits grant temporary relief to fool people.

4.    Do NOT go to church to have someone lay their hands or to pray over you. (In short, there are evil spirits in the Institutional Church such as the Antichrist and the Kundalini. These spirits have the potential to be transmitted from person-to-person that could potentially make things even worse!)

If these steps do not provide relief, there might be other legal grounds that the spirits have over you. If you need help, you may contact Pam Sheppard at 888-818-1117 or email her at getreadyforthelord@gmail.com.

Examine Your Social Circle: Are You Pleased with Your Reflection?

29 May

——————————————————————————————————————–
People are like sponges. They absorb everything that they see, hear, and touch. Needless to say, it’s not easy to stay isolated from the tempting world. Obnoxious commercials, scandalous music, and plaguing advertisements persistently bombard today’s industrialized society. Even the institutional church has become overtaken by the darkness of false doctrines and evil spirits. Hence, it’s crucial for the Body of Christ to choose their inner circle wisely. Remember, friends are CHOSEN family.

During these perilous times, we must surround ourselves with righteousness and light. That includes our friends and family. The tighter the circle, the better. Don’t forget that the Enemy has an innate ability to use people to harass a selected target. Hence, support-systems and social circles must be condensed to a selected small number of individuals during (and after) a religious detox. Remember, these people are either going to help or hinder spiritual progress if they will remain. There isn’t a gray-area. 

From personal experience, I left my best friend of three years after I left the occult. We wrote countless stories together that we one day hoped to publish. However, I had no longer wanted to be associated with the numerous supernatural, sexual, and homosexual elements that these fictional writings contained. Knowing that I’d be continuously tempted into writing that way with her again, I ended our affiliation. Sure, it hurt. Although, I’d rather stay sober in the immortal truth of Christ than to stay in a temporary, personal relationship.

Our social life reflects ourselves. Like a mirror, our friends usually have similar core values or alike behavioral tendencies as our own. If a friend interferes, tempts, or harasses you about your religious detox, don’t be afraid to snub them.

Draw the line with your friends with the same line that you draw yourself (hopefully with the Truth of Christ.)

Look at your friends like how you look yourself in the mirror. 

Do you like what you see?

If you need a support system, Pam Sheppard Ministries provides camaraderie on a secret group on Facebook called RESCUE Fellowship (https://Facebook.com/groups/rescue.) The group provides great commentary. It welcomes those in need of help overcoming the world’s temptation and detoxing from the institutional church. When I chose to leave my best friend, I’m happy to say these were the people that became my companions to fill that gaping void. I never felt better to see myself reflected and surrounded by the Body of Christ.

Getting Rid of Religion Starts with the Basics, its Practices

23 May

The English word “Religion” is defined as a “state of life bound by monotheistic vows,” originating in the 1200s. Thereby, religion is a very underrated, dangerous thing. It’s very definition implies on man making the first move for salvation. That can take the form of a creed, sacrament, or work (dancing, singing, etc.). However, only the Holy Spirit can lead a person to Christ’s Crucifixion and Resurrection. Hence, people instead often mistakenly give legal rights to religious demons or occult demons.

When a captive leaves their former religion, they must rid themselves of their old religious habits. That entails all forms of prayer, songs, and traditions. Said captive must leave their salvation in the hands of the Holy Spirit since they cannot earn their salvation themselves. However, religious practices can become habitual such as touching a cross or praying before a meal. Like ticks that embed in the skin, religious behaviors can become ingrained in a person’s subconscious. Hence, it’s crucial for a captive to remain vigilant for religious actions that they might not have even realized they were performing.

Personally, when I left New Age Christianity, I had a habit of “wiping” energy from people that I would touch. As I had started to become more of a religious Christian, I began making crosses over the spots where people would touch me instead. The idea was that I’d purify myself free of their energy by the “power of the cross.” (I was massively mistaken since the Cross only purifies a person’s Spirit (for salvation) on the Holy Spirit’s time.))

Months after I left the New Age Christianity, I found myself “crossing” my legs when somebody brushed passed. At first, I was appalled until I remembered how much I used to perform that act every day. All day. Every day. In other words, that was my first slip up in a long time. So, I kept my composure and stayed watchful to not to repeat that behavior for the rest of the day.

Captives, remember that removing religious habits takes time. During the religious detox process, stay vigilant for previous religious, compulsive behaviors that may rebound. To suppress religious urges, try to change your routine by exercise, gardening, or cooking. It is helpful to renew the mind by replacing old, religious habits with new, secular ones.

If you’re struggling to cope with religious tendencies, the book “The Church of The Endtime Zombies” is invaluable. The testimonies of formerly religious people resonate with readers that may have thoughts of removing their “religious ticks” or self-reflecting upon their religious tendencies. By my own experience, if you’re trying to leave religion, the book is quintessential for the groundwork to success. Pamela Sheppard, the author, provides excellent commentary with her experience helping people get out of the Church. Meanwhile, she also exposes the spiritual downfalls of religious tendencies that grant legal rights for evil spirits to terrorize God’s Elect.

The Importance of Physical Health To a Successful Deliverance

16 May

Medical professionals recognize five crucial aspects of personal health: spiritual, emotional, social, mental, and physical. During deliverance, a person will be challenged in four out of five of these essential pillars (spiritual, emotional, social, and mental.) Hence, a person’s physical health becomes especially important.  

Strengthening physical health negates demonic strongholds by using a person’s flesh as an asset rather than a hindrance.  

Take fasting. It’s one of the first things a client is advised at RESCUE is to stop along with the rest of religious activity. True fasting can only be accomplished by the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Otherwise, the Enemy will use a fasting person’s currently weakened flesh as a means to attack (or tempt) a depleted, exhausted prey.  

One of my personal weaknesses is an over-active mind. Once a thought comes to pass, I often have difficulty ridding of it. Thereby, when I was tormented, the Enemy sought to insert dozens of blasphemous thoughts against the Lord. Set up, I was in a constantly harassed cycle against mostly myself.

By depersonalizing these thoughts, most of the torment had been gone. However, I still had an overactive, restless mind that refused to settle. So, I possibly left myself exposed to becoming tormented again if I wasn’t careful.  

Recently, my family and I went to the gym on a whim. Burning off my excess, anxious energy, my physical body became tired. Thereby, my mind became much more peaceful and settled. Not to mention, my focus also highly improved. 

Needless to say, take care of yourself during deliverance. Make sure you eat well. If you are able, exercise (even a thirty minutes) each day.) Make your flesh into an aid instead of an impediment.

Health is a gem with many facets. As deliverance occurs, you will need ALL the facets to shine, so you’ll be “glowing” by the time the Holy Spirit guides you to the Cross and the Resurrection.
