Deliverance From Error: Avoiding Truthiness, FAke News and Alternative Facts

10 Mar

I have noticed that some churchgoers feel absolutely miserable when they become undeceived. Their self worth was bound up in their acts of religion. Self-hatred, shame and guilt are a part of the process as well. Serious remorse and sorrow—the grieving stage—is usually followed by intense anger and desire for revenge against those who deceived them.

I never experienced any of that.

As for me, I was a minister for more than 25 years within a well-known denomination when I got undeceived. I NEVER GOT ANGRY OR BLAMED ANYONE ELSE. I was actually angry BEFORE I got undeceived. That is because most of the time, I was rejected by church folk and other ministers. So once I got undeceived, I realized why people in the institutional church aka the  IC did not like me. And so it was very easy for me  to forgive them and move on. Also, I really never submitted myself to anyone. I took all the blame primarily  on myself. Therefore,  all those whom the enemy used to deceive me did not even get a second thought.

In fact, I was blissfully joyous. First came shock. Then understanding followed by extreme gratefulness.

What I was grateful for is that everything I was wrong on: tongues and other supernatural gifts, tithing, I RARELY PREACHED FROM THE PULPIT. I never insisted that everyone speak in tongues, or tithe. Did I create false conversions? Not many. On a rare occasion,  I declared people born again when they “accepted Christ.” I did not do much on “ask Him to come into your heart” though. While I was ministering at the altar, it just did not come to me to say.

The denomination I was in did not have many people to come forward to accept Christ. The pastors  asked the congregations to come forward to join the denomination and then they put them on a 6 months trial. So there were not many people falsely getting born again.

I REMAIN VERY GRATEFUL THAT MY MARGIN OF ERROR DID NOT REALLY HURT ANYONE.

Actually, I knew from the beginning in 1979 that something was seriously wrong with the church but I  thought it was my responsibility to be an instrument for IC change. Recently I heard that the special church I adored and desired to pastor for so many years is practically dead right now.  A close ministerial friend who was my rival over that church has now left it in failure and disgrace. Did I feel vindicated?  NO.  What  I felt was utter sadness.  You know them by their fruit.

One of the stages you should arrive at is being grateful that God saw fit to undeceived you. If you have had a false conversion, if He has un-deceived you, that means He intends to cause you to be born again and to deliver you. I am particularly in  awe that most of my life, I thought I was special. I WANTED TO BE KNOWN as the best this or that. The truth is that I did not know what it really means to be special really  until God Himself made me special beyond my expectation with the revelations He has given me. No, I had no idea what special really is. If there is a duplicate of me anywhere in the world, I would like to meet him or her.

God has made me so special that I prefer to hide than to make myself known to the world. All I want is for God”s elect to be undeceived.”

What really shocked me was to discover that the 3 dreams I had in 1979 that told me to go to that particular  church were from the devil. That was one of my biggest shocks. It caused me to wonder if God really called me to the ministry while in the church. Certainly, something supernatural DID happen. Was that God or the devil? Was all my work a waste? Did I really cast out demons from people or was it all a sham? Was The Holy Spirit helping me to preach or did my help come from a fallen angel?

Well, I have answers to those questions. One way I got an answer was to listen to messages I preached and taught before I was undeceived. I have not heard them all as there are many, but I have not found a mistake or an untruth yet in the ones I have heard thus far. Actually, I am being blessed and re-taught by my own messages.

For me, my past spiritual life is not a major concern. I put all those years behind me without much effort.

Eddie Long & the Church

15 Jan

eddie-long

Eddie Long declared that he was back and healed at his church during his pastoral anniversary service on Oct. 9, 2016. He also asked for church members to move forward to the pulpit and receive healing so that he could lay his hands on them. . It has now been announced that Eddie has passed away today and it was from an aggressive form of cancer. His death  will probably leave many church goers puzzled, disillusioned and needing answers wondering does God still heal? does deliverance & the power of God still exist? Why was Eddie not healed even when he claimed he was as the prosperity gospel teaches? 

Deliverance, healing still occurs, people are even becoming born again BUT this is not happening in the church but outside of Her.

In Re. 18;4, the Lord Himself declared “Come Out of Her, My People.” my pastor, Pam Sheppard challenges the elect of God  to ask themselves 3 simple questions concerning the Lord’s warning, as follows:

1.  Where are “God’s People?”

Could the scriptures be referring to a particular nation or country? No. God’s people are in every nation. Even though America claims to be a Christian, people of diverse persuasions can agree on this one point, namely, that America is really NOT a Christian nation.  Let’s face it. The universal place where God’s people assemble for worship is “in the organized church.” It’s the only place that makes sense. In this day and time, without a passport and finances, who can walk out of their native country very easily and re-locate elsewhere? In truth, mass exodus from anywhere today is practically impossible. Jesus would not command us to do the impossible.

However, anywhere in the world, we can come out of the organized church by simply no longer attending.

2.  What generation of God’s people is Jesus speaking to?

Most of the book of Revelation is about the end of the church age. If the 7 churches in the book of Revelation represent chronological symbols of church ages throughout history, then Jesus is talking to the final generation, the church at Laodicea.  It’s a no-brainer that no other church era on earth could top our own generation in a claim to be “rich and in need of nothing.” (Revelation 3:17)

3.   Are we at the end of the church age?

For all intents and purposes, if we are the church at Laodicea, where those who preach the prosperity gospel actually DO brag on how rich they are, spiritual blindness is clearly and undeniably rampant. When churchgoers haven’t a clue as to the meaning of repentance, rebirth and the resurrection and therein believe that they are saved but they are not, what could be a stronger sign that “we are near or even at the end of the church age?

So if you answer in the affirmative to all 3 questions, then Jesus has spoken to YOU! He is warning you at this very moment to come out of the organized church, and if you don’t, you are going to receive of her plagues.  You don’t have to be a bible scholar, a prophet or even a rocket scientist to answer these 3 questions. Once you have your answer, then if you are a true believer in Jesus Christ, you will know, without a shadow of a doubt that you must “come out of Her.”

In a nutshell, ONE primary reason stands out above all others that should be enough for the elect to decide to come out of Her. It’s because fallen angels—religious devils—have infiltrated the entire church system. Certainly, they have no part in the true Body of Christ because the real “church” is not a building made with hands. However, through compromise and doctrinal distortions of all kinds, there is an invisible, imposter god undergirding every edifice, regardless of how sincere and faithful the leadership.

Consequently, if you are unknowingly worshiping an imposter, then you are unknowingly practicing idolatry and breaking the 10 Commandments. The punishment for idolatry is a release of the curses or “the plagues.” (Deuteronomy 28) When judgment falls, churchgoers will not be able to find the secret place of the Most High, nor abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Paul warned the Corinthians that they should “flee fornication.” In the spirit, fornication is idolatry. In the words of Klein and Spears in their book “Devils and Demons,” these co-authors offer the elect some sober and sound advice:

We need to run, not walk—-as fast as we can and as far away as we can get—from any devils and demons that masquerade as our great God of the Universe.”

Putting my interpretation of who actually is “Her” of Revelation 18:4, I have also considered several other scriptures in both testaments. For example, in the old testament, whenever the Father referred to the idolatry of the children of Israel, He used symbols of gender, with Himself as masculine and His people as feminine. In fact, God command the prophet Hosea to marry an adulterous woman to stand as a metaphorical comparison of Himself and the children of Israel’s practicing the religions of heathen nations. (Hosea 1:1-3)

Similarly, Jesus is the metaphorical Bridegroom while the elect—His people—are the Bride. In both testaments, idolatry is synonymous with fornication or sex outside of marriage. When God’s people practiced a false religion, it is written that they “went a whoring.” In the new testament, the Lord chided the first church at Ephesus with a gender based reproach when He warned “you have lost your first love.” (Rev.2:4) In response to the idolatry in the church at Thyatira, the Lord declared yet another gender based statement with “I’ll cast you into a bed and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. (Rev. 2:20-22)

There are several more examples that in themselves could be the subject of a book or two, particularly “the Songs of Solomon.” In keeping with the biblical pattern, it stands to reason that in our times, the “Her” of Revelation 18:4 is an idolatrous religion practiced predominately behind church walls.

Playing the devil’s advocate with yet another question posed in an attempt to try the spirits to see if they be of God, I asked myself the following questions: : Suppose I am completely wrong and I have absolutely misinterpreted the scriptures and the “Her” in Revelation
18:4 is really NOT the organized church? To that, my response is “I will have lost nothing because I gained absolutely nothing from the church except error and deception.”

More telling words from Pastor Pam:

As I look back in order to present my decades of spiritual history within a well known denominational system,” chapters 2 to 6 will progressively unfold that not only did the organized church have nothing at all to do with my salvation or my spiritual edification, but in fact, the entire religious system served as an enemy to my soul. A root in dry ground, I did more than merely survive. Showered with God’s grace and mercy, I actually thrived in a dark, un-nurturing place— a spiritually dangerous, hostile spiritual environment. If God Himself had not been on my side, I am convinced that I would have withered on the vine and died—spirit, soul and body.

The Anointing of Charismatic Preachers: Is It Hypnotism? By Pam Sheppard

2 Nov

I was a preacher in a black denominational church  for 25 years. I preached an average of one sermon a week, with 12 of those years preaching 3 sermons a week. On one occasion in the pulpit in 1983, I felt a strange power come upon me where it seemed I was “not myself.” I was in a rather strong altered state of consciousness. I thought it  was simply  an extra powerful anointing of the Holy Ghost. I now know that IT WAS NOT!!! I had reservations about it because of the struggle I was having with a particular sin at that time. I wondered “how and why would God anoint me like this at such a  challenging time in my spiritual walk? I said to myself “hmmmm.”

  I knew nothing about sermonizing. When I went to church for the first in 1979, I had never even heard a sermon before and so when I was informed in 1981 that upon entering ministry, I would be required to preach a trial sermon on October 25, 1981, I had no idea what a sermon was. So in the summer of ’81, I began to preach in my sleep, in preparation for the October day of trial. I also walked around all day for about 30 days, muttering sermons. The muttered  sermons were supernatural. Nevertheless, I thought that I was under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It took about 25 years for me to find out that in those early and strange days, I was under the “anointing” of a religious spirit or  demon who the enemy had assigned to me. I thank God that  when I DID enter the pulpit to preach and pastor, it was less than a handful of times  out of  at least 2 thousand sermons that this noticeably strange   power came upon me. I have since discovered that it is a demonic power, in no way, the Holy Ghost.

Oh yes! Demons enjoy preaching. I came out of a denomination where men who were adulterers, fornicators, perverts, closet homosexuals could preach so hard, that they could affect even me, in spite of what I personally  knew about the intimate, sometimes secret details of each preacher’s life. At least 10 times a year, 50-100 ministers gathered at various regional church functions and a  different handful were selected to preach at these gatherings.  When those ministers whom  I  personally knew were corrupt  were assigned to preach, I harnessed  down my soul to protect myself from being  overpowered, but there were times when I would lose control. Their power was too strong. I often wondered about it over the years. How could these corrupt men overtake my soul with one of their sermons in spite of my pre-planned resistance to it? Could this be God? Would God use such sinful men to preach HIS WORD???!!!

It took two decades or more to find out the answer to that question. The answer is NO!!!! The Holy Spirit does not anoint such preachers but the devil DOES!!!. It is called communal intoxication as studied and named   by the founder of sociology, Max Weber.

Communal intoxication is defined by Weber as the supernormal ability of magicians, wizards, witches and charismatic religious leaders. With the god concept at its center, they induce an altered state of consciousness in their followers as demonstrated by the congregation’s manifestation of convulsions, trembling, and intense effusions of excitement and ecstasy. (Come Out of Her God’s People, pg 190) Weber points out that that communal intoxication has a contagious effect where it can spread throughout an audience or congregation of people, infecting those assembled with sensations of enhanced emotionalism and vitality. This definition explains the so called holy dance, holy rollers, holy laughter, running around the church building, perhaps even tongues and slain in the spirit phenomena.

This power was manifested in my presence for 25 years among denominational African American preachers. Keep in mind that Weber’s studies were predominately tribal communities on other continents, including Africa and Asia. Webers findings suggest that the altered state appeal has a significant connection to today’s charismatic leaders’ ability to cause large numbers of people to believe that they have been released from bondages and that they have “heard from God.”

One thing Weber pointed out is that none of what we see today in the churches is a new phenomena. Paganism has used hypnotic or altered states of consciousness in their various forms of worship with the use of drums and instruments to arouse the soul for decades.  In the churches, similar techniques and strategies use emotional songs and lyrics  to work  congregants into a spiritual  frenzy that is not the anointing of God. Those most vulnerable  are usually  emotionally struggling and in some cases, they relish an opportunity to have a fit.

African American denominational  preachers learn from each other. When they  emulate the preaching styles of others, like whooping for example,  they are often unaware that what they have acquired are  hypnotic skills. I suspect that most Charismatic preachers  know exactly what they are doing.  Either way, be the preacher uninformed and  innocent or deliberate and guilty, you are still sitting in a congregation that is actually  being manipulated and led by unseen forces known as religious spirits aka demons and fallen angels. So be warned. Evil spirits are looking for opportunities to enter their subjects who have been mesmerized or hypnotized into an altered state. A church service is very conducive to demonic manipulation.  The altered state of consciousness enables them to take control of their human targets.

The Fallacy of the Carnal Christian

2 Sep

 According to the institutional church, particularly Charismatics, Baptists, and other denominations where sin is prevalent among the membership, these folk have an explanation. The explanation is that carnal Christians are saved. They love the Lord but since they are carnal, or worldly, they are justified but not sanctified. they have accepted Jesus as Savior but have not submitted themselves to Him as Lord.

This perspective also contends that carnal Christians can remain so for the rest of their lives. Even though throughout a lifetime of faithful church attendance and service, it is believed that carnal Christians will certainly get into heaven but so as by fire, or by the skin of their teeth.

I have excellent recall of the choir in the church where I began as a member in 1979. These folk were faithful, always in church. some of them were heavy tithers. I recall that they were also the most demonstrative worshipers, shouting, crying, falling slain, testifying of the Lord’s goodness, leaping up in the Holy Dance, etc.

Yet, the elders habitually sinned, particularly fornication. Their daughters were constantly getting pregnant, proudly wearing their choir robes with their bellies sticking out for all to see, with no husbands in sight. The choir pianist was a gay drug user, beloved of the entire church. Maurice died in his 40’s, never having changed his lifestyle.

Regularly, unwed mothers held baby showers in the church, like there was nothing wrong with this sort of behavior. I understand that nothing has changed among them.—in fact a tolerance of sin has so increased, that it goes more unnoticed today than it did 40 years ago. simply put, no change in character or in their values.

The explanation is that they love The Lord but that they are simply carnal Christians.

In our private blog, RESCUE members had some interesting things to say about this subject:

Member #1:

 I have been around these type of people the majority of my life. Growing up, I was raised in a Baptist church, where basically people just do certain things to claim they are sorry for their sin and want to be saved. Then, after they are so called, “saved,” they try to justify their sin by using works of the flesh to try to keep from sinning. But they can’t do it, so they make excuses for their sin, and say, “Well, since I am saved, I am under grace, so God will forgive me as a “christian,” for doing this sinful thing. Then, they live their lives as if they are in so many trials and tribulations, and God is supposed to do everything for them. Not once do they even consider that God is not sitting at the throne waiting to give them their every need and desire because their motivation for trying to change is “getting into heaven.” These people live their lives one way in front of certain people, and behind closed doors live another way. They are the worst sinners I know! lol I used to always wonder why people were saying they were christians, but their lives did not reflect a love for living a holy life. Honestly, I used to laugh at them, because I knew it was fake. How can you claim to love God in one breath, and act like the devil in another? Yet, the minute somebody calls you on it, you say, “God knows my heart.” PULEEEZZE!!! Yeah, he knows your heart alright! He knows that it is wicked! They came up for every excuse in the book. These type of people would always focus everything on the Prodigal Son parable, implying that you can leave God and then come back to him and still be saved. Hmmm…..

Member #2

Yes, I was one of those carnal Christians, but realized that this is wrong. Almost everyone I know is either a carnal Christian or they claim that their sins are not serious ones. So, I’ve seen either total acceptance of sin, or the condemnation and hyper critical judging of it. The greed, the politics, the discrimination, and the exclusion of others due to the fact that these others sin differently, is hypocrisy. I knew I wasn’t right, and found out why, but who knows how many are out there that do not know, and will never know the Truth. I am just glad that God has been showing me the Truth, and pulled me out of that nonsense. Now, I know I am not born again. With that knowledge it explains why I’ve not been able to overcome the flesh or sin on my own. It is impossible to do. When I am born again, I know the slate will be wiped clean and I will have the Holy Spirit to help me overcome the flesh and sin.

Member #3

I was carnal and did my best to hide it behind a religious mask in fear of judgement. I always felt very guilty inside and wondered why I could never break free. I would see others who didn’t exactly drink or smoke or engage in sexual sin but they instead were controlling and abusive to a very sinful degree which was quite acceptable. It was my constant carnality that finally helped me realize I wasn’t saved. My carnality was drinking, smoking and depression. Had my carnality been religiosity or jezebelliousness (lol) I would still be in her! No matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t keep up with them. I relapsed into drinking after close to 4 years again to ease the pressure of a very controlling Holiness church…I can trace a lot of problems occurring after going to that church including a botched suicide attempt. This is where I seen the image of sananda etched on a pew. I had seen an image of him before even reading Pams book. That’s why immediately I knew Pam was speaking the truth and was like this huge revelation. I didn’t want to accept that I was not immediately unsaved, but the truth and proof was there,,,,,,there are no carnal Christians those who are truly born again. I am sure sin will come for those born again but to be in that same sin for 6 years straight is a strong clue of a false conversion.

The Black Church and Whitney Houston

20 Feb

Wenona Russ is the first new author published by Pam Sheppard Publishing, the author of the e-book, “the Making of a False Prophet.”

In this video, Wenona  makes some salient comments relative to the failure of the institutional church to conduct successful interventions with its troubled and addicted flock.

However, I have a different take on the issue.  In my book, “Come Out of Her God’s People,” you will find these words:

                                                                                                      

There Are Plagues in the Institutional Church

“It is ironic to note that the very conditions conducive to the pervasive emergence of the plagues of the organized church thrive in Her ability to weaken, distort, mis-apply, and discard Her primary reason for existing, namely the revelation of both the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” Beside preaching the gospel so that the Holy Ghost can convict and convert, the most important responsibility of the church of Jesus Christ is to tend the sheep.  Jesus was very particular about the mandate of safety and protection.”

Whitney’s church gave her a memorable “going home” service, yet they failed miserably to protect one of their own from the evil music industry whose favor they  flagrantly seek, evidenced by the exaltation of worldly superstars at the center stage of their “holy” place.  The backlash?  Whitney drowns in a bathtub.

Her death may appear to be an accident.  On the surface, it seems so.  The spiritual truth is  that Whitney’s death is a plague upon the church because they have kept  one foot in the “house of God” and the other foot— in the world.

  The wages of sin is death.  Not so much the death of a phenomenal icon, but the death of the church system  who adored  her. The institutional church idolized  Whitney Houston  and out of a lust to bask in her superstardom, churchfolk  could  not protect her with their prayers or their counsel.

Setting Captives Free From Christian Religion

11 Feb

It is certainly not easy to leave the organized church, even when you have been spiritually abused by her.  This is part one of a series of videos—a testimony shared by a minister of 30 years whom the Lord led out. The full testimony of Rev. Pamela Sheppard can be found in her profound and enlightening book “Come Out of Her, God’s People: Don’t Receive Her Plagues.”

"Leave the Church" Proclaims One Minister Who Can Stand Alone!

30 Nov

LEAVE THE CHURCH, By Pam Sheppard

For those who have been closely reading my posts, it is time for you to really know”where I’m  comin from”. Here is my bottom line, where the rubber meets the road.   Other than for preparing the last days church for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, I have no personal motive. In fact,  I am a  68-year-old retiree from public life.  A retiree from NYS government,  I am  also done with   starting a church.  Therefore, I am not looking for a sheepfold to follow me or anyone to “rule over.”

To get the message of “what time it is to churchfolk”  requires money. I pay to publish, so I don’t make any personal money off of my 6 books. Any one who cannot afford to pay $20 for a book need only let me know and you will be  sent an e-book at no charge. What I use to spread the message of “come out of Her, God’s people,”  is my   own inheritance and my  own savings.

 When I provide a counseling or training  service, I set a fee.The fees I set are reported to IRS. In spite of them, I have never earned a profit.   I do not charge for deliverance, healing, prayer or any of God’s graces.  Nor do I ask anyone for donations..  Why not, you ask? Because those who give money control those who receive it. I will not put myself in a position to be controlled by  ANYONE!

 Nor am I looking for notoriety as I actually prefer to remain “under the radar.” Recently, someone was singing my praises–called me an end time prophet of God with the message of the hour.  After 2 months of turning folk off by  proclaiming my “qualifications and my message” this former associate’s  last words to me were “I no longer endorse you.” 

 I laughed to myself. She does not know that I don’t need anyone to either endorse or  “sell me.” Nor  will I try to justify myself to anyone.  I perceive no benefit to me or my message in any attempt on my part to prove that I am reputable. It is a waste of time as no one can prove that they are not corrupt in  times such as these.

 My word to you is this. If you seek me for counseling, training or ministry, you will have to find out about me in your own prayer closet. What I am willing to share about myself is something that  I can prove.Here is what I can prove.

  I owe nothing to NOBODY and I expect NOTHING from NOBODY!

You see,  I am free to do all things and free to do nothing. Only in the last seven years have I been this free.  I was restrained for 25 years from offending those who paid my  secular salary and for 25 years, I had to please  the bishops under whom I serve as an ordained minister..  Those days are over for the rest of my life. Like the Lord Jesus, I too can  declare that neither man nor the  devil has a place in me.

Besides a secular career in state govt  where I earned a great pension and excellent  health benefits, beside being  in private practice as a therapist once I retired  at the age of 53 in 1997,  I have also been a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ for 30 years.   Since I was gainfully employed in the world while simultaneously pastoring,  none of my personal  income has   ever been derived or accumulated from Christian  ministry.  When I received a salary from any of 3  different churches that I pastored, I gave it back to them double-fold.   I even founded my own church in 1996, which I closed in 2009. 

 Today, I do not attend church, at all. 

I personally believe that church is a dangerous place to be, particularly for the sincere followers of Jesus Christ of Nazareth–the elect of God.  I need to make it plain that only the elect of God is in  real danger, and not those who simply attend church because they believe that it is the right thing to do.  The “un-chosen” in church are not Satan’s target but only those who belong to Jesus Christ.

In order to understand my position, you need to know that  I am not coming
from “whether or not there  are good churches or bad churches.”  Certainly, there are both, and that has been the case for centuries.  In our time, there  are some wonderful, good people and excellent programs operating in plenty of  churches.
However, this is the power of man. This is the power of human flesh.  Human  beings  can do some good and wonderful things,without God.  For example, man has proven that he can build a rocket and walk on the moon.  Man conceived the very computers that we all communicate on, with a wealth of information at our finger tips.  This is”a good thing.”    Likewise, just  because a church is “good,” doesn’t mean that “God is there.”

When I was led out of the denomination I served in 2004, I did not know my departure from the organized church system was completely over.  The Lord told me to come out, and I obeyed, believing that He planned to send me to a different church affiliation.  In fact, I waited for 3 years until the Lord spoke to me. In this regard, I had a handful of  supernatural experiences AFTER I was led out of the organized church.  Powerful and amazing, to say the least.

Visions, dreams and audible voices such as I have experienced since 2007  come from either God or the devil. There is no in between. In fact, my soul is not imaginative enough to have conceived what I have heard in the spirit. Now if I am wrong,—-if I heard from the devil— I will STILL go to heaven because my born again experience had nothing at all to do with the organized church. I was not saved in church.Church added nothing to my salvation but error and deception.

 So if I am wrong, I have nothing to lose.If I am mistaken, God knows the intent of my heart.  I don’t have any axes to grind. There is no bitterness in my heart against churchfolk or the system. I can certainly  admit to errors in discernment  and I will publicly apologize if I am proven to be in error.  

 However, if I am right, and you continue to “go to church,” then you, dear reader, HAVE A LOT TO LOSE.

A Former Pastor Warns: Leave the Church Part 3

10 Nov

LEAVE THE CHURCH AND COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM

I started out for 33 years of life an atheist. In 33 years, I attended church just ONE day in my life.   Once I had a ‘Damascus Road” type of experience with the Lord, I was sold out for Him.  And it was two years—1979–before I attended any church.  I went because I had 3 consecutive dreams of a local pastor, and all 3 dreams urged me to find this man, the late Rev. Lester.  (not his real name.) Not once in more than 25 years did I ever consider that it was NOT God who sent me those dreams.  I didn’t find out until AFTER I had finished my 4th book, “the Fake Jesus:Fallen Angels Among Us.”  How did I find out?  The Lord spoke to me and  quietly  said, “I did not send you those 3 dreams that sent you to that church.”  Simple.

Why did He wait so long to tell me this?  Well, I never asked Him.  I kinda “knew” without asking.  I needed to know the depth of perversion and depravity the organized church system actually is “from inside.”  You might say, “I was a spy.” I was never really a part of the system because the demons in it recognized that I was a spy before I actually knew it myself.  The Lord allowed a messenger of Satan to give me 3 dreams and several confirming signs that I was supposed to be there.  I was a church person for 25 years, in ministry about two years after I  first arrived.  I was in a denomination where several churches in a region are “connected.”  So I got to know about 100 ministers, about 10 percent of them as close regional associates.

Well, I knew it was depraved from the beginning.  My first pastor was a closet homosexual who also practiced a Caribbean form of witchcraft called “obeah.” He was one of the first to die of AIDS in the early 80’s.  Most of the ministerial elders that I had to submit my ministry to were depraved.  Thieves, drug abusers, fornicators, homosexuals, child abusers, you name it, undercover and sometimes openly, they did it.

I stayed as long as I did because the religious demon assigned to me played  a convincing game to prove that  God had me in the system to cause the system to repent.  So I was on my knees, sobbing, wailing and travailing for 25 years.  When things only got worst, commonsense should have told me, “Hey Pam, Don’t you “get it?” God is not answering your prayers in this matter. Why can’t you ‘figure it out?’ If God has not answered your prayers for repentance for 25 years, perhaps it is because “the time of repentance is over.  It just ain’t goin to happen, Gurl!!! Get up off your knees!”

I was pretty comfortable in the denomination in 2003.  I had started my own church and I kept my self separated from the religious politics, and the Bishop did not particularly care WHAT I was doing.  He treated me like I didn’t exist, and that worked well for me.  Then one day, the Lord spoke to me in a dream.  He showed me that “it was time to go.” He said “but let them PUT you out.”  Since I was not in any kind of trouble with the upper echelon, it seemed implausible that they would put me out.  Well 9 months from the dream, my name was removed from the denominations rolls.

Once out, I devoted myself to my online ministry which had begun in 2002 and to the church that I had founded in 1996. From 2004-2007, I waited for the Lord to send me to a different denomination, with my eyes on Full Gospel, non denominational groups.  It didn’t happen.  Then in 2007,  the Holy Ghost spoke again.  He compared the organized church to an inner city condemned building.  In short, He said “I’ve judged it already and I am no longer there.”

I said to myself “this COULD be the devil. It was too incredulous for me to believe that the Holy Ghost was not in the church.  I was in a state of shock.   So I tried the spirits through the study of church history for one year.  After that year, I knew I had heard from the Holy Ghost.  He is NOT there.

Since God is not there, no point in ME being there either!

The details of my  story are in the book, “Come Out of Her, God’s People.”  It is an eye opener that should be a part of your library. It is an “ah ha” kind of book.  It explains a lot about the organized church, its ministers and its members as well as “it plagues.” Also if you want to discuss this, your comments are welcome.  If you already know I speak the truth, you are invited to enter into deliverance mentoring where you will be assigned a trained minister to be in touch with 24/7. Someone who will be much better for you than even an AA or an NA sponsor because this minister is trained in deliverance and in counseling. To receive a mentor, call 518-477-5759.

A Former Pastor Warns: Leave the Church Part 2

10 Nov

When I left the church in 2004, I did not know that it was a permanent move.  I expected that the Lord would lead me to another church affiliation.  I had my eye on Rev. Paul Morton’s organization, the full gospel Baptist.  It seemed a great choice for me because I had been  ordained and served in a denominational church  very compatible with  the Baptists, yet I was also a Pentecostal in orientation, belief and practice.

So when 3 years passed and I did not have a leading to join another church, I wondered why. It didn’t take long for me to be answered once I sought the Lord in prayer.  In less than a week, a kind of telepathic communication took place to let me know that I was not to join any organized church.

I was spoken to in a kind of parable.  I was asked, “Pam, would you put curtains up at the windows of a condemned building.” I thought of all of the condemned buildings I had seen growing up in the inner city.  I answered in my mind. “No, I would not.”

Then came a kind of speech that went something like this.

“A homeless person will make a home in a condemned building.  To escape the elements of the weather on the outside, he will satisfy himself and “make do” with no heat, no running water, no lights, and he will share his dwelling with its occupants: the rats and the roaches.”

Then I was hit in the face with the next outrageous statement.

“If you try to edify the organized church with seminars and conferences, you will be putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building.”

Wow.  I was stunned. I had already begun to conduct deliverance seminars with the first one in Bermuda and the second one in Lawrenceville Ga. I was planning the third when this spiritual conversation transpired.    Metaphorically speaking, it was clear to me that the condemned building was a symbol of the entire organized church.  It this “strange conversation” was from the Holy Spirit—then the metaphor clearly suggested that the organized church is condemned, in other words, judged already.

In keeping with this parable of sorts, sheep who attend church regularly are those who are afraid of the outside elements of a dangerous and sinful world—and rightly so. Therefore, it makes sense to run inside of church walls for protection.  Yet in keeping with the symbols, when churchgoers run inside, what they find is no light.  God is light.  In Him there is no darkness at all.  No light–No “God!!!  The “voice” went on to say that the rats were the pastors and church leaders and the roaches were those who sat on the pews.

No running water in the condemned building means no rivers of living water, No Holy Spirit.  No heat.  No fires of the Holy Spirit. This parable was clearly saying that the Holy Spirit has left the organized church.

I didn’t want to believe that I had heard from God about this.  I was pastoring a church that I myself had founded in 1996 and I did not want to close it down.  However, I knew that if this was God speaking to me, I MUST close it down.

I tried the spirits for one year by studying church history.  What I discovered has been  written in a book called “the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”  When I wrote the last chapter, I knew without a doubt that I had heard from the Lord.
