A Solid Foundation, Set Free From Religion!

21 Feb

Come Out Of Her My People: Rev 18:4

celebrating-lifeI am happy to proclaim that I am a proud member of Rescue, happy to be free of the religion that left me confused, in bondage, and chasing after a false practices that have NOTHING to do with the truth that is found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ!!!

As someone who has been to so many different churches and has heard so many different doctrines and salvation gospels growing up, I find RESCUE to be a breath of fresh air. I was so confused, because I found that every church or denomination I attended preached a different gospel…I later found that NONE of those gospels that I heard were actually the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ, but rather watered down versions  of the real thing. Through my journey for truth, I found that most of the religious practices I had engaged in for so much of my life did…

RESCUE: A Ministry of Healing

21 Feb

 

30371

Do you feel like you need healing? Are you troubled by some spiritual things happening with you that you feel like no one else around you understands? Are you damaged by the church or by religion? Do you need to be delivered from some challenging situations in your life? Do you need to talk to someone about some spiritual struggles you are having? Are you seeking a private space, without judgment, to share about your challenges and receive help? 

Well, we are HERE. We are RESCUE, an online Christian group for folks who are not attending church, have been damaged by religious practices, and need help detoxing from religion. One of the primary roles of RESCUE is to minister to people who need healing. The Lord allows us to accomplish this task through our unique way of counseling, coaching, mentoring, and preaching truth that sets captives free according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Bible. 

We have found that many of the religious practices that occur in the churches today water down the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ, which therefore causes a great amount of spiritual damage to believers, and leaves people confused, without a solid foundation. Many churches do this by preaching gospels that either add to, or detract from the True Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Are you sensing this? Do you feel led to search DEEPER for truth? If so, RESCUE just might be the avenue for you. We have a great deal of blogs, videos, links, and books for you to browse through, so stop by and check us out.

If you are so inclined to move forward, we are only a phone call or email away.

TO ENTER THE COUNSELING/COACHING COMPONENT, call to schedule an appointment for a telephone session at 888-818-1117. You can also send an email to rescueonfb@icloud.com

Religion Takes Away your Identity

12 Feb

jail

One thing I have really disliked about religion (well, there are many, but I will focus on this one! lol), is that being religious makes a person become something they are not. You all know what I am talking about. There is just this certain way people become when they turn religious…even in the way they speak. The religious practices and rules make us feel like we have to do certain things, and act a certain way to be accepted by God, be righteous, or “get into heaven.” It’s like a switch turns on for them to act a certain way when the subject of God or Jesus comes up. All of a sudden, they know all the righteous things to do and say. Interesting…

I do not miss the long, drawn out, religious prayers, that are nothing but FLUFF, leading people to believe that they have attained a certain righteousness with these deep prayers. I remember going to all-night prayers. I HATED them. Why? Because people would use all these religious terms, trying to sound all holy, instead of just talking to God (or who they thought was God) like they talk to a regular person. The constant, “Father Gods,” or the “Oh, Almighty God,” religious sayings after every sentence drove me CRAZY!!!! I am the type of person who just talks normal when I pray. I don’t see a point in saying all this religious stuff to try and impress God. I’m sure he will hear my prayers if I just talk to him, like a normal human being.

Then there’s the “acts of worship” people put on as they suddenly hear a religious song, or get in an atmosphere of falling into an altered state, thinking they are worshiping God. To me, worship is in EVERYTHING I do for God, it’s my life…not just some religious state I get in when I hear a religious song or something. When I was in the IC, I felt something was a bit odd how a certain song will come on, and people would suddenly CHANGE.

Then, there’s the constant referral to scripture for everything you say, as if quoting Bible verses makes you more spiritual than others, or closer to God. I used to be in discussions where I had to have a scripture to back up everything I was saying.

Let’s not forget the SERMONIZING…the religious, on cue rise and fall of a preacher’s voice, just to get a huge reaction from his/her audience.

While I was in the church, I hated the bondage. I suspected something was just not right with having to follow all these rules, and do certain works to transform myself into become this IMAGE of what a “christian” is supposed to be. I yearned to just be REAL. To be FREE. To be NORMAL. Religion took that away from me, and made me this person who would put on a form of Godliness in any situation related to church, God, Jesus, etc.

Today, I can happily say that I am FREE from all of that. I don’t need to say religious lingo to talk to God. I don’t need to act a different way, just because spiritual topics are being brought up in a conversation. I don’t have to suddenly go into this altered state of worship, to try to feel close to God. I don’t have to talk a certain way, citing Bible verses everywhere I go, trying to appear righteous. I’m just ME…Learning truth, living my truth, and being REAL. No fake religious mess. And you know what? God still accepted ME. Just the way I am. Finally, I do not have to live a life of being fake, engaging in religious works, just to feel that I am close to God. No more religious songs, no more religious facebook groups (of God knows WHO is really saved in there), no more pressure to go to church to “earn” or “maintain” my salvation, no more feeling like I have to sound a certain way in prayer, no more listening to pointless sermons, that have nothing to do with the truth, but rather a point the preacher wants to get across, no more saying “grace” before meals, as if something is wrong if I DON’T say grace. I know that GOD IS NOT IN ANY OF THAT. RELIGION IS MAN’S INVENTION OF WHAT THEY CONSIDER TO BE THE PATH TO GOD, INSPIRED BY THE DEVIL. IT IS COUNTERFEIT. IT IS NOT REAL. IT IS A FORM OF GODLINESS THAT DENIES THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST. I NO LONGER STRUGGLE WITH MY IDENTITY BECAUSE OF RELIGION. I KNOW WHO I AM, AND AM HAPPY I HAVE THE FREEDOM IN CHRIST TO BE ME, AND NOT SOMETHING RELIGION HAS CREATED ME TO BE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY RELIGION IN YOU, LET IT GO. YOU WON’T FIND GOD THAT WAY. JUST STOP BEING RELIGIOUS, AND START ANEW. GET OUTTA JAIL, AND BE FREE. Learn who God REALLY is, and maintain YOUR IDENTITY.

Have you lost your identity in religion? If so, what examples of losing your identity in religion have YOU experienced?

Living by the Spirit vs. the Flesh

1 Jan

Competition

In today’s society, what I see as the age of Laodicea, what people consider “Christian” is actually CARNALITY that exists in RELIGION. It is OF THE FLESH. It appeals to the DESIRES OF THE FLESH. The majority of the organized church consists of CARNAL people who consider themselves Christian and includes carnal practices that people engage in that they THINK are about God. Everything they do and practice is with a carnal mind. Everything they do in church is about THEM and the frivolous things of this world. Their minds consist of things that encourage them to be consumed by attaining everything on this earth. Every scripture in the Bible is somehow supposed to be for THEM. They are self-absorbed, thinking that somehow, in their self-absorption, they are serving God. Even the praise and worship is about SELF. They attempt to worship God in order to get some type of spiritual high…as if God is some kind of drug. They believe that every fleshly desire they have is supposed to be granted by God, as if God is a magical genie, just sitting around waiting to grant wishes. They think that, if they just do this or that religious practice enough, and pray for it enough, then God will just wave his magic wand and giving them what they want, hence misinterpreting  Psalm 37:4, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart,” twisting it to mean that all they have to do is pretend to delight in the Lord by engaging in religious practices, and then POOF! God is going to go ahead and magically give them everything their hearts desire, when in actuality, in Psalm 37:4, the meaning of the scripture is quite the contrary. It actually means that when a person is delighting him/herself in the Lord, HIS desires will become THEIR desires…it is about the Lord changing a person, making him/her a new creation, desiring what the Lord would desire so that he/she can be more like HIM. But most people in the organized church don’t get this because they are CARNAL “Christians.”

Romans 8:7 explains this succinctly, yet quite well. “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”

The CARNAL MIND IS AT ENMITY WITH GOD. What does enmity mean? It means “the state or feeling of being actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.”  So what does this tell you about church and religion?

As for me, everything I did and thought about used to be carnal…yet I considered myself a Christian. Truth is, I didn’t know the FIRST THING about living a life dedicated to the Lord. The Lord showed me that I was NOT born again. I was so carnal that my motivation for being saved was because I wanted to go to heaven. Folks, if you think like this, THAT IS CARNAL. Salvation is about the LORD. Godly sorrow is just that…GODLY SORROW. Sorrow for the Lord. Anybody who simply said a sinner’s prayer, responded to an alter call, joined a church, or chased after God out of fear of going to hell is led by CARNAL DESIRES. THOSE THINGS DO NOT SAVE YOU.  I only used him when I wanted him. I used to want to be saved because it benefited ME…nevermind the power of the cross, and the incredible sacrifice Jesus Christ of Nazareth made…nevermind the heartless crucifixtion he had to endure…the SPOTLESS LAMB…because I, in my nature am so wicked and evil that I could not save myself. The Lord had to SHOW me the wickedness of who I am…not just what I did. It was then that I realized that salvation is  not about focusing on what we did and how miserable our lives are (like the churches falsely teach), but rather the wickedness of WHO WE ARE…THAT WE ARE SO CARNAL MINDED THAT EVERYTHING WE DO IS CENTERED AROUND US, and that it is a PRVILEGE to be called to salvation…NOT, “Oh, my life is so miserable, I don’t want to go to hell, so I am just going to do some fleshly thing to choose God.” HOW DISRESPECTFUL IS THAT???!!! When the Lord CALLED me to salvation, I did NOT choose. The Holy Spirit blew on me and showed me the POWER of the cross and resurrection. HE CHANGED ME. I DID NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING…NO ALTER CALLS, NO SINNERS PRAYER, NO SPEAKINGIN TONGUES, NO “DECISION-MAKING..” HE SIMPLY SAVED ME. Hearing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ was all it took. The TRUE Gospel that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, he is GOD, who came to earth in the form of Jesus Christ, he lived a sinless human life, shed his blood and died for the WICKEDNESS of humanity, and CAME BACK TO LIFE IN THE SAME BODY HE DIED IN, AND IS NOW ALIVE TODAY, IN HEAVEN, SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER. THAT WAS IT. No religious mumbo jumbo. Just the Gospel. When I heard that, the Holy Spirit did the rest and re-birthed my spirit. I can CONFIDENTLY stand here today and say that I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Lord saved me!!!! And IT WAS NOT IN SOME FLESHLY, RELIGIOUS CHURCH!!!! Now that I AM truly born again, any personal desires for me are no more. I have no desires of my own, but to serve the Lord, and live my life on this earth, while I’m here…nothing extra. I don’t expect anything, nor do I feel that I deserve anything. I live in peace daily, and am not bogged down by the weight of this world singing CARNAL gospel songs that do NOTHING for my spirit, and do NOTHING to uplift the Lord, but rather put the focus on self and fleshly desires. Yes, there are a few songs that actually DO focus on the Lord and on the Gospel, but most of those songs are about the FLESH. THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS THE BONDAGE OF RELIGION. And I am happy to be free of religion. Oh, I have MUCH MORE TO WRITE ABOUT THIS!  This is just the tip of the iceberg. You aint see NOTHIN YET!

A friend of mine couldn’t have said it better: “Religion teaches people to seek personal destinies and it is another false perception of God. People think that God waves a wand of fulfilling fleshly desires and so they do not understand that the true focus is not our own.”

So how about YOU? Do you have your OWN destiny? Do you focus on carnal desires, yet profess to be a Christian? If so, are you willing to give up your desires in order to TRULY understand what it means to live a life revolved around the Lord?

This post is not for the haughty, religious folks whose only effort is to try to prove to me that they are “saved,” or to try to debunk what I am saying, as a means to engage in meaningless, religious arguments.

NO. This post is for those whom the Lord is calling OUT of the organized church system, and who are humble enough to consider that something may be wrong with the religion that they thought was their avenue to God. It is for those who are courageous enough to DARE to DETOX themselves from everything religion has taught them, in an effort to find the TRUE God, and NOT some sorry religious copy.

Can YOU Recognize False Doctrine in Church?

22 Dec

false-doctrine

With all that is going on with the election, and with other catastrophic events going on around the world, it is obvious to me that we are in the last days…the age of Laodicea.

One problem: While people may notice obvious, outward signs that something is wrong in our world, they don’t readily notice that something is TERRIBLY wrong in today’s churches. It is like people are ZOMBIES…going to church without a CLUE that the devil is among them. Are those church practices really from God? Or are they just THAT…CHURCH PRACTICES??? Why are there so many salvation doctrines? Why so many denominations? How about TITHING? How about the phenomenon of TODAY’S version of speaking in tongues? What’s up with the prosperity gospel teaching folks that chasing after money and greed is God’s will, when the Bible clearly states that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil? Or, how about outright OCCULTIC practices being performed RIGHT IN THE CHURCH…A PLACE THAT PEOPLE SAY WHERE GOD’S SPIRIT DWELLS? Can a bad tree bring forth good fruit?

Do you have thoughts about things like this a lot? Are YOU concerned about the state of the churches today? Does it BOTHER YOU that evil is happening in the churches, yet people continue to proclaim they are houses of God? Do you know the difference between RELIGION AND TRUTH? Do you have a problem with organized religion, and see it as something that interferes with you connecting with God? Are you constantly turned OFF by the idea of attending church? Are you turned off by religion? Do you notice that a lot of the practices within the churches seem strange, unbiblical, and detracting from or adding to sound doctrine? If these things constantly run in your mind, check out the video below. If you are CONVINCED after watching this video, CONTACT US for help. We are here to serve you. Resources and contact information are provided below, at the bottom of this post. “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine.

The Devil is in YOUR Church!

13 Dec

fb_80

One thing that this election has shown me for certain is the fact that the enemy resides in the organized church system, or what society tends to identify as “church.” You meet there on Sundays for “worship” which is really just people’s way to gratify their flesh by participating in something that “feels good.” Nevermind the lack of TRUTH that is involved. You go there to engage in all types of religious practices that are supposed to be attempts to serve God, but are rather a bunch of different rituals that most who attend have know idea their reasoning for engaging in.

Progressively,  you find that you have believed in FALSE DOCTRINES that are preached, because the religion has blinded you so much that you could not see the difference between a form of Godliness vs the real thing…but now you are in desperate search for the real thing because, quite frankly, what is offered out here is obviously not of God.

There are so many different things that go on there that you KNOW are wrong, but you just can’t put your finger on it. You notice that people out there who consider themselves “Christians” actually voted for and/or supported an elected official whose entire platform is based on hatred, bigotry, racism, and divisiveness, yet people who say they stand for Christ actually SUPPORT this platform. You SEE the evil operating behind the scenes in the churches, and you see how this evil causes church leaders, who are supposed to be men and women of God, to ignore it and sweep it under the rug.

In shock, you realize that everything you have been raised in, everything you have based your morals and values on, and have come to believe as true because it was taught to you as being true, is actually NOT TRUE, but rather the devil has been hiding behind the scenes deceiving people into thinking that they are worshiping God by “going to what they describe as ‘church.’” 

Finally, you question practices like tithing, speaking in tongues, the laying on of hands, intercessory prayer, and praying Jesus into your heart. You wonder why if God’s church is supposed to be of one faith, one Lord, and one Baptism, then WHY IN THE WORLD ARE THERE SO MANY DIFFERENT DENOMINATIONS THAT PREACH DIFFERENT THINGS, AND PREACH DIFFERENT SALVATION GOSPELS, WHEN ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES,  THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY???!!! You’ve witnessed outright sinful practices going on in what they call, “church,” yet this is supposed to be a HOLY PLACE? OF GOD? This puzzles you. “You KNOW that no good tree can bear bad fruit, yet you see bad fruit growing from the “church” tree, and realize that something is terribly awry here.

If this is you, and you connect with what I am saying here, then it is by NO ACCIDENT that you have landed here. You have realized that the organized church is NOT the REAL CHURCH, LED BY CHRIST, but rather an attempt by man, inspired by the devil, to try and duplicate the real thing. The Lord may be drawing you out for such a time as this.

You are not alone. There are others out there just like you. We are  endtime ministers and watchmen who believe that NOW is the time of the tribulation. Our mission is to help you  prepare for the Lord’s return.

If you KNOW something is wrong, and you need help sifting through all of it, then hit us up at: getreadyforthelord@gmail.com and we will be there to help guide you through this. You do not have to go through this alone. The Lord has sent you help as you prepare for his return. We are here. Contact us. Help is available.

18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

Preparing for the Lord’s Return

3 Dec

areyouready4return

Those who are called to salvation and live in the end of the age just before the return of Christ will be able to recognize the times in which they are living. If one is able to recognize the prophetic meaning of the events recorded in books like Daniel and Revelation, one should be able to recognize these events unfolding, the enemy operating behind these events, and is not deceived into continuing to make the mistake of worshiping and serving a false god like in the churches and in the occult. Being able to recognize these things should also give one a measure of assurance and peace of mind as to the final outcome of the terrifying times spoken of in these prophecies.

For those of you who are the elect of God, you will clearly understand this one word that is a weapon that the enemy currently uses: DECEPTION.

The true elect of God will recognize this and bear witness with us. If you are of the elect, you will notice the deception that exists within the churches. You will clearly see the forms of Godliness that outright deny the power of Jesus Christ, through false religious practices including, but not limited to: praying Jesus into your heart, intercessory prayer, speaking in tongues, promoting of the “I accept Jesus” doctrine, the laying on of hands, and so forth…MANY will automatically OUTRIGHT DENY this, and will accuse people like us of being “false prophets” because they are so bound by their religious ways that they cannot see past it due to being deceived by the enemy. I would surmise it to say that ALL churches that are part of the organized church system (all denominations, including non-denominational groups) are run by THE DEVIL. Yes, people may have good intentions and may mean well, but they are DECEIVED by the devil and his agents. It is FALSE. It is COUNTERFEIT. It is but a copy of the real thing. People think God is in their church when he is NOT. Demons are in charge of these churches. People are worshipping the devil and his demons, thinking they are serving God. Why? Because they do not know the truth, and are blinded by their religion. If you are seeing this, YOU may be one of God’s elect. Once again, God’s TRUE elect will bear witness to what we are saying here. If you recognize that there is a difference between TRUE CHRISTIANITY AND THE RELIGION THAT EXISTS IN THE CHURCHES OF TODAY, then you may in the right place.

The true elect of God will also recognize the enemy operating in occult practices like yoga, meditation, the celebration of Halloween, the belief in New Age forms of thought, psychic phenomena, fortune telling, necromancy (trying to communicate with deceased loved ones), automatic writing, and the like. In this current day and age, occult practices seem to be hidden in just about everything, so you have to DO YOUR RESEARCH about these practices. Do YOU notice the occult trying to use deception to influence our society today?

In addition, the TRUE elect of God will notice some parallels with the current election and the events that play out in the books of prophecy, like Daniel, Isaiah, and Revelation. We believe that this is the time that the Antichrist will appear and eventually make himself known…a POLITICAL FIGURE WHO USES RELIGION TO DECEIVE, CONTROL, AND BRING A FALSE SENSE OF PEACE TO MANY.

How about YOU? Do you sense the Lord’s return? Do you notice FALSE DOCTRINES being practiced in the churches? Do you notice people carelessly engaging in occult practices like yoga and meditation, thinking they are harmless and simply promote “good health”? Do you see the enemy operating within religion and politics? As this new election has come to pass, you probably have begun to notice some endtime signs that are difficult for you to ignore. It seems pretty OBVIOUS that we are now in the time of Tribulation. Could the organized church be Mystery Babylon?

If this article speaks to you, we can help you prepare for the Lord’s return. We are a group of Endtime ministers and watchmen, committed, ready, and willing to be there for you as the 2nd Coming of the Lord approaches.

Going to Heaven as a Motivation

24 Jun

If your motivation to becoming born again is to get to heaven, you have COMPLETELY missed the mark. Becoming born again is motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our personal desires are pushed aside, and the Holy Spirit comes and shows us a “New Thing…” one that gives us saving faith in the power of the crucifixion, cross, and resurrection of Jesus Christ…NOTHING about YOU like the Institutional  Church (IC) teaches. In the IC, it’s all about man, works, and MAN’S desire to get what HE wants out of the deal. When it’s the REAL DEAL, you are out of the picture, and Jesus Christ is the center.

I don’t know about you, but growing up in the organized church system, I was often taught that going to heaven was a motivation to wanting to be “saved.” I had absolutely NO DESIRE for God, nor did I really understand what the cross TRULY meant, and what the resurrection of Jesus Christ really was.

In most churches today, the preacher’s focus on the altar call is on the individual desiring a better life for himself, or perhaps the individual being so hopeless and guilty about their lifestyle that they are heavily encouraged to “make a decision for Christ” before it’s too late. What a self-centered approach to salvation!

As a reminder, Pastor Pam Sheppard had NO desire for God when  He began his work in her and rebirthed her spirit. So desiring God and doing works to avoid ending up in hell certainly can’t be prerequisites to becoming born again. And Paul was a persecutor of Christians, yet the Lord saved him. Neither Paul not Pam were worried about “getting into heaven,” or avoiding hell. Neither was feeling so guilty and helpless that they did works to try to save themselves.

As for me, the thought of heaven or hell never even entered my mind when I heard the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was way too caught up in what happened to Jesus Christ, whereas beforehand when I was part of the IC, my MAIN motivation for trying to be “right with God” was because I wanted to get to heaven in the end…no concern for the cross and resurrection, and no change occurred in me. I just wanted to do all the works it took in order to be saved…when we all know that we are saved by GRACE, and NOT by WORKS. There is NOTHING we can do to get saved. Our human works are not enough. Only the Holy Spirit has the power to quicken our spirits, give us FAITH in the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, cause us to repent, and make is new, born again creatures. WE DON’T HAVE THE POWER TO DO THAT. WE CANNOT SAVE OURSELVES FROM OUR OWN WICKEDNESS. WE ARE POWERLESS. This is why the ENTIRE salvation gospel preached in the IC is COMPLETELY FALSE. The IC tried to step in and do the Holy Spirit’s job, which is not possible. I dare say that if your salvation experience occurred in a church service within the IC, you are probably NOT born again, and have a False Conversion…no matter how GOOD it felt. THINK DEEPLY ON THIS.

Come Out Of Her My People: Rev 18:4

Have you ever felt like something was wrong with the organized church system? Do you feel like you have been searching for the TRUTH, but cannot find it in what is commonly referred to as “church” today? Are you concerned about strange practices in the church, but can’t put your finger on it? Do you feel like you are following set of rules and practices with no rhyme or reason? Well, Pam’s latest book, “The Church of the Endtime Zombies,” would be the PERFECT book for you! It is a RIVETING, JAW DROPPING account of the false doctrines and practices that occur in the institutional church, and how, through several experiences of her clients, the Lord led Pam to provide pastoring, guidance, teaching, spiritual counseling, and deliverance through RESCUE, an online church and deliverance ministry based on the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Speaking in Tongues is DEVIL WORSHIP! By Pam Sheppard

An Excerpt from the FAKE JESUS: Fallen Angels Among Us

Evan Roberts and The Wales Revival of 1904-1905; Part of the appeal of this wide scale revival lay in Evan Roberts himself, a charismatic and sincere preacher. Although he came from the Welsh Methodist tradition, he wasn’t a theologian, and he never finished his training to be a minister. His message was for all the people of Wales, regardless of denomination, and it was immensely appealing. Meetings would be a mixture of prayer, self-examination and singing, and they could last for hours. Roberts suffered a severe mental breakdown at the end of the revival, from which he never recovered. As a result, his public ministry was finished. He recuperated at the home of Jessie Penn Lewis and he assisted her in writing “War on the Saints.” When the book was denounced by critics in that day, it is reported that Roberts denied co-authoring the book. Jessie Penn Lewis, author of “War on the Saints.” ((1861-1927) was an English evangelical speaker and author of a number of Christian evangelical works. Her father was a Calvinist Methodist minister. Along with Evan Roberts, Penn Lewis was significantly involved in the 1904-1905 Welsh Revival. As previously noted, the revival was abruptly shortened with the mental and physical collapse of Evan Roberts.

Penn-Lewis traveled internationally to take her spiritual warfare message to audiences in Russia, Scandinavia, Canada, the U.S., and India. She has remained a controversial figure among Christians for almost 100 years, primarily because she declared the failure of the Welsh Revival to be the work of Satan. Emphasis is centered in “War on the Saints” of the danger that comes to believers at the point of baptism in the Holy Ghost, yet little reference is made to tongues.

In a subtitled called “The Counterfeit Presence is Sensual,” Penn-Lewis writes: (War on the Saints, pg. 130-131) “The counterfeit presence of God is given by deceiving spirits, working upon the physical frame, or within the bodily frame, upon the senses. We have seen the beginning of this, and how the first ground is gained. It is deepened by these sense-manifestations being repeated, so gently, that the man goes on yielding to them, thinking this is truly ‘communion with God’—-for believers too often look upon ‘communion with God’ as a thing of sense and not of spirit—and here he commences praying to evil spirits under the belief that he is praying to God. The self-control is not yet lost, but as the believer responds to, or gives himself up to these ‘conscious’ manifestations, he does not know that his WILLPOWER IS BEING SLOWLY UNDERMINED. At last through these subtle, delicious experiences, the faith is established that God Himself is CONSCIOUSLY IN POSSESSION OF THE BODY, quickening it with felt thrills of life,or filling it with warmth and heat, or even ‘agonies’ which seem like fellowship with the sufferings of Christ, and travail for souls, or the experience of death with Christ in the consciousness of nails being driven into the bodily frame, etc. From this point, the lying spirits (demons) can work as they will, and there is no limit as to what they may do to a believer deceived to this extent. (Jessie Penn-Lewis)

Now readers, don’t get angry with me. I did not write those words. I don’t know about you, but almost a century ago, this woman wrote words that describe ME! From the agonies and travail for souls, the feelings of warmth and heat, .the consciousness of nails being driven into my bodily frame, I experienced all of this—some of it before I even heard about tongues, before I was even introduced to charismatic teachings or mega preachers.

There is nothing new under the sun where the religious demon is concerned. He just reworks the same ole stuff. Just recently, I happened to be browsing “War on the Saints” for the umpteenth time and I found a short paragraph accompanied by a specific footnote toward the end of the book regarding tongues in small print which is quoted below, in red. As much as I read and value this book, I only noticed this small paragraph and footnote last week: “A question arises here as to whether believers may now speak in unknown tongues, as the disciples did at the time of the Holy Spirit’s in filling at Pentecost.

There are those that say ‘Yes” but the truths set forth in preceding chapters, show that until the spiritual section of the Church of Christ are more acquainted with the counterfeiting methods of the spirits of evil, and the laws which give them power of working, any testimony to such experience AS TRUE, cannot be safely relied upon. (pg. 298) And here is the footnote in fine print: The subject of speaking in tongues is not further dealt with, as the counterfeits in connection with it are only a fraction of the countless counterfeits being forced upon the children of God AT THE PRESENT TIME, numbers of which are not referred to in these pages. A believer not deceived by counterfeit speaking in tongues can be deceived and possessed by accepting other counterfeits. An understanding of the BROAD PRINCIPLES showing the basic differences between the way of God’s working, and the deceptive imitations by Satan, will enable spiritual believers to discern for themselves all the counterfeits they meet with today.

Clearly, Jessie Penn-Lewis was more concerned about “her day and time” then she was about ours. Having ministered in the greatest revival that has occurred in recorded church history since the days of the early church, much of her wisdom comes from experience. Likewise, my own reservations about tongues is primarily connected to counseling professing Christians for deliverance, the vast majority of whom speak in tongues, yet they are also tormented and some have been seriously demonized.

Evidently, Penn-Lewis was not a prophet and therefore, the Lord did not show her “our times” or perhaps she would have spent more time on the speaking in tongues–a practice that has evolved in our times into a major controversy. In this regard, I hope that those readers who speak in tongues will not allow their feelings and emotions to override their good sense. My concern is not for the bona-fide manifestation. In 30 years, I have not personally witnessed one. My concern is for the counterfeit. As such, I agree with my contemporary, Dr. Rebecca Brown’s warning concerning counterfeits manifested through the speaking in other tongues. Her comments were made relative to charismatic Catholics but I believe that Dr. Brown’s words apply to word of faith followers and those within pentecostal denominations as well:

“Christians have made the terrible mistake of assuming that ALL tongues are from God. How wrong they are!…It is well-known that many occult rituals are done in tongues….The fact that Catholics speak in tongues is not proof that they are filled with the Holy Spirit. Too many of these precious Catholic souls assume that because they are speaking in tongues, they are saved. How can the Holy Spirit be operative and manifesting of idolatry?”( Prepare for War, pgs 182-3)

In a nutshell, Dr. Brown’s rhetorical question is the bottom line of this blog, and in a nutshell, she has written what I believe to be the overriding issue. Therefore, I must concur that I do not believe that tongues and its interpretation can be a gift from God within an idolatrous system. The degeneration of this system in the last two decades or more has now gone wild with the prosperity gospel. The amount of money pilfered from unsuspecting, faithful people in tithes and offerings is beyond my imagination to sum up. Furthermore, the current segment of the charismatic/pentecostal system’s preaching of faith has seriously injured and caused premature death to countless of people who have refused needed medical attention that could have spared their lives.

Tragedies of today are actually influenced by the ministries of Charles Parham and another 19th century minister whose name is John Alexander Dowey. Called the Father of Healing Revivalism, Dowey was arrested and charged with manslaughter in the death of his own daughter, who died from a severe burn due to Dowey’s refusal to seek medical attention on her behalf. The beat goes on as I have recently watched video clippings of people whose deceased relatives believed in error that they were healed at a Benny Hinn crusade.

Only God Himself knows how many of his children on their death beds suffered needlessly,–depressed because some word of faith preacher taught them that anyone who becomes sick has either failed God or that their faith in God was too weak to be healed by Him. No, I no longer trust a system that has been replete with error for 100 years. I have searched the scriptures and now I have reviewed the history of tongues. I have some strong impressions as to why I have been suspicious of manifestations that I have either experienced or witnessed. Research has confirmed for me that what we see operative today in tongues is counterfeit. If there is a true gift of tongues in operation, we should be privy to how to discern the true gift from the fake one. Moreover, if tongues has actually ceased by the hand of God, we should not attempt to restore it. For those who desire to continue to track my search for truth, I suggest that you keep reading.

Note:. The Fake Jesus was published in 2007.

Today is December 15, 2011.Four years have come and gone. I spoke in tongues from 1982-2007. Twenty-five years!!!! As it now stands, I continue to NOT speak in tongues because today I am convinced that it is a counterfeit doctrine and practice of the spirit of the Anti-Christ. I make no exceptions, unless you are in a remote part of the world where more than one unknown language is spoken, and the natives have never heard of Jesus Christ.
