The Prosperity Gospel Is From Demons!

18 Mar

This video was posted 5 years ago. In it,  I make reference to a dream I had about Creflo Dollar and the prosperity gospel. Time has moved so quickly.  The dream I had must have been from 10-12 years ago.

Quite frankly, this false doctrine is so distasteful to me that I have buried it along with my attachment to the organized church. However, since I am often questioned about the subject, I will reluctantly address it for the sake of inquiring and damaged sheep.

Since the love of money is the root of ALL evil, it is not surprising that the prosperity gospel is one of the top false doctrines proclaimed by religious demons in this particular hour of history. In a nut shell, it is an out of biblical context teaching that obligates God to bless the tither or the giver of offerings to the organized church in ALL ways, with an exaggerated focus on financial prosperity.

An added emphasis is that it is taught from the pulpits around the globe that a believer can actually BUY a spiritual blessing from God with their financial giving. The message has even been reduced to a quasi-mathematical formula—whatever you give will have a 100 fold return: 100 dollars for a one dollar offering, 1000 dollars for 10 dollars, 10,000 for 100 dollars, and so on.

It is truly an abomination to twist the Lord’s very words in bible RED serve as the foundation for this demonic, materialistic teaching. Jesus said “I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly”. He was not talking about finances. The word for life in this verse is “zoe”—-ETERNAL LIFE!!! Yet word of faith are defensive and belligerent in their ignorance. Some have even used the Lord’s very words to name their nefarious churches “Abundant Life,” a bold suggestion of their commitment to the prosperity false doctrine.

Consequently, WHEN THE PREACHERS SEND THE MESSAGE THAT MONEY AND WEALTH WILL FLOW FROM THE PULPITS TO THE PEWS TO THOSE WHO BLESS “THE ANOINTED MAN OR WOMAN OF GOD AND THAT WHEN THEY TITHE, THEY ARE GIVING TO GOD—Well—-

THIS IS THE BIGGEST FLIM FLAM EVER IN THE HISTORY OF CON GAMES.

To the word of faith prosperity preacher, giving money to the church is “planting seed” is taken from the Lord’s parable about “the Sower.” If you have listened to Christian radio or watched preachers on TV, you have undoubtedly heard the expression, “good ground.” They have told you that their church or ministry is GOOD GROUND.” Therefore, if you sow your seed into it, you will reap a financial harvest.

It is amazing how many countless millions around the world have fallen for this demonic lie in the last 20 years! Absolutely incredulous. It reminds me of the old flim flam that was rampant in the 20’s and 30’s in the inner cities called “bakin money.” Prior to the mark giving the con man his or her life savings, the con man put a small amount money into a heated oven and “baked”it. As bread spreads because of the yeast, when the money came out of the oven, it had increased 100 fold.

So by this “demonstration,” the mark was convinced by the trick of the eye. You see, in the demonstration, the con man had sneakily  added the increase into the oven when the mark was not looking by the slight of hand. Even though poor folk fell for the con, at least they were shown some sort of demonstration. Today, pulpit pimps and prostitutes have raised the spiritual ante by teaching THEIR marks that they must  “walk by faith and not by sight!”

“WHAT A SET-UP!!!” If you don’t get the increase they promise God will send you for your tithes and offers, you are yet tricked again to believe that perhaps YOUR faith is too weak to prosper!!!

Listen, people of God! Jesus explained the parable of the Sower Himself. Good ground is the soul or heart of one who hears the gospel, understands it, believes it and He saves them!!!!The seed is the word of God, not MONEY!!!!

In conclusion, I repeat. The prosperity gospel is particularly abominable because it takes the words of the Lord, adds to them and detracts from them.The prosperity preacher may have flim-flammed you and gotten rich off of your hard earned dollars, but he and she are cursed. Why? As Paul warned the Galatians, anyone who adds to or takes away from the word of God is CURSED!

SO IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED THIS BLASPHEMY, YOU HAVE PARTAKEN OF THAT VERY CURSE! REPENT AND DISAVOW IT, BELOVED!!!!

One last thing. About  7years ago, the Lord showed me that He has sent a spirit of poverty on all the sheep who have been duped by the prosperity gospel, —not as punishment but as a warning—a wake up call. He wants to let you know that the prosperity gospel is not working and therefore, you will use your commonsense and wake up to the fact that it is not of Him. Be warned. He wants you to flee the prosperity gospel. He will restore your finances once you “get His message” and repent.

Free From Demonic Torment

1 Feb

A personal testimony from a RESCUE member on her journey to deliverance and freedom in Christ. 

blog_47 

From birth to the age of 16, i was raised in a catholic home. It wasn’t a strict catholic upbringing but we went to mass every Sunday, participated in Bible Study and confession regularly. My catholic life was dry for the most part, the only time i had a supernatural experience was one time i had to go do my confession to a priest in order for the church to give me the sacrament of confirmation which was to signify that i have been filled with the Holy Spirit and now worthy to receive the body & blood of Jesus which was the wafer and wine offered during mass.

I was dreading my walk to the church due to a number of reasons, first, I was naturally a fearful person, the church was also located in a neighborhood that wasn’t very safe, i remember my heart racing and a strong urge to not go for the confession but i thought that was the devil deterring me from being filled by the Holy Spirit. I went to the church and confessed my sins, even during confession, i lied and made up sins that i didn’t even do. The priest told me to repeat the hail mary & the Lord’s prayer several times and he declared me absolutely clean. I felt this amazing sense of peace and joy. The girl walking back home was confident and happy and sure that she had received the Holy Ghost, the truth is i didn’t by a simple teaching from Jesus, “you shall know them by their fruits.” 

My feelings of joy and peace didn’t last long, there was no substantial change in my spiritual life, it was still dry and full of rituals. My fear increased greatly. I resigned myself to thinking this is how spiritual life is, many adults weren’t living holy as they claimed. I was initially exposed to hypocrisy in the church while being catholic, it used to bother me that the “spiritual giants” used to gossip and be mean to fellow church goers. I was a child and raised not to question adults so i kept this question to myself and remained troubled over it.

FALSE CONVERSION

In 2000, I was 16 and in high school where a church group visited and we were shown an “End time” movie. They later explained how many will be be-headed and suffer when they miss the rapture. We were also threatened with the prospect of dying & going to hell, where people burn forever. I panicked and rushed forward to say the sinner’s prayer which was supposed to allow Jesus to enter my heart and seal me with eternal life in heaven. I thought I received Jesus Christ of Nazareth but red flags started popping up immediately.

  1. First red flag was that I started suffering from sexual thoughts about Jesus, the thoughts felt like a blow to my mind, I would fight back to stop the thought from continuing. I suffered in silence, very embarrassed and thought i was a very lustful person. I cried for forgiveness constantly hoping God wont be angry with me.
  2. Second red flag was the constant cuss words in my mind directed towards God the Father and the Holy Spirit. One time during a prayer meeting, i felt a strong force pushing me to open my mouth and hurl obscenities, i held my mouth tight, waiting anxiously for the meeting to end so i can run out.
  3. I got a dream where i was surrounded by strange looking creatures, in the dream i realized they were demons and all of them stared at me intently, they all looked ready to attack especially one that looked like an anaconda. I wondered why they didn’t attack, but as i looked out the corner of my right eye, i saw a man dressed in white. I thought that was Jesus of Nazareth protecting me but during my counselling it became evident to me that dream was showing me the fake Jesus and his demons who have entered my life.

TORMENT

I was always a fearful person and this increased after getting “saved.” Every night i would perform a ritual of anointing myself, the bed, and room before i slept. I was afraid of death, torture, nightmares and demons attacking me while i slept. Listening to worship songs, sermons and anointing the vicinity gave some comfort but the results were short lived. I started taking sleeping pills after a family tragedy to try and get some sleep but my sleep pattern was ruined, i suffered from insomnia and constant fatigue.

Things took a turn for the worse in 2004 when I was asleep alone in my room and a spirit touched my private part. I woke up in complete shock, it felt like a complete invasion of privacy, I wasn’t safe in my own home. All the doors were locked, the windows were shut but yet i was attacked. My fear grew tremendously because the demons taunting me made me know there was more to come. I didn’t share this with anyone because i never heard other people suffering from this. I felt ashamed, embarrassed, and felt sad for myself, wondering who could help me, i prayed, read the bible, went to church but baffled as to why this was happening. I engaged in a lot of prayer meetings where we would recite Cindy Trimm prayers from her book, binding demons and releasing angels. I would feel pumped after a prayer session but as always, the feelings were short lived.

I was filled with anxiety before going to bed, making sure i slept with the lights on, slept in certain positions, played christian music hoping that i wouldst get sexually or physically assaulted. All the while i showed other people that i was as normal as i can be, yet i was falling apart on the inside.

In 2013/2014 the night visits became weekly and the demons were becoming more bold in their attacks, I’ve been slapped and had my private parts fondled. I suffered from sleep paralysis as well. By mid 2014 i finally acknowledged i was in trouble as the years of torment were adding up, also the attacks were getting more frequent and more deadly. I started to feel my mind slip and knew if i don’t get help soon, the situation will turn critical. 

HOW I MET PAM SHEPPARD

I was restless, i could feel i was at a turning point in my life, a feeling like i was at the edge and almost about to fall off. I listened to more TD Jakes sermons, then moved to G Craige Lewis. My thinking was to combat demonic attacks with more religious ritual, i was so blind and couldn’t see that the more i engaged in religion, the worse the attacks became. I wrongly thought that the rituals – reading the bible, listening to sermons & christian music helped lessen the intensity of these attacks, if i stopped them, the attacks would become much worse. I was completely blind!

I always searched various christian topics on the web, i literally stumbled on Pam Sheppard’s blog and the topic was on sexual acts that would defile a marriage. I found her take on the topic interesting and it led me to read more topics she had covered on her blog. As i read her blogs about the Institutional Church (I.C.) having been taken over by fallen angels, i was shocked yet intrigued because she was answering all the questions i had while being in the church. 

Through reading more posts from Pastor Pam i found a video she did on “Spirit Rape” where she spoke on women experiencing visitation from spirits which would engage in sexual acts with them, she finished the video by saying if this is happening to you, you are not born again. I tried to ignore the last part but the torment caused me to realize something is terribly wrong and its time to get some answers. I knew my time to face the truth had arrived.

EMOTIONS

For the longest time i struggled with low self esteem. I would cry for no reason and always find something to worry about and when the situation was resolved, i would look for the next issue to stress about. My emotions were determined by outside factors and other people, i bought into the labels society, family and church gave me.

Growing up in Africa as a black person, my ethnicity was never an issue. I never felt inferior as a black person. I knew what the world thinks of Africa and Africans in general but it never affected me in my day to day life. When i moved to North America, i felt my blackness and it wasn’t good, i felt inferior and any incident where someone would be rude or dismissive would affect me greatly since i wanted other people to validate me since i had no identity.

i was chained to standards set by other people e.g. Ethnic stereotypes, church views that women can’t be pastors, a woman is not valuable to society if she is not married or have children. My bias against women pastors almost led me not to listen to Pam but i stayed and listened because my torment was greater than my opinions and it humbled me to a point i was ready to listen and i thank God for making it that way otherwise my pride would have made me walk away.

DELIVERANCE PROCESS

Before i started my counselling sessions with Pam, i thought deliverance was a pastor shouting at a demon to come out as the captive manifests and rolls on the ground shouting. My view on deliverance was very different from what it really is. I watched several of Pastor Pam’s videos and read her blogs, after a couple of days i sent her an email stating that I felt i had a false conversion and needed help. I filled out a Deliverance form which helped me go down memory lane in my life and it helped me through the counselling process as Pam could look through the forms and see the doorways I had opened to the demons that were harassing me.

I learnt lot and discovered that i had a false conversion  which we broke. My will was weak and passive and needed to be built up. I also learnt of ancestral demons that affect people of African background and how to break any covenants that i would have been a part of. My biggest challenge was to stop religious rituals that i was used to, but my desire to be free was greater and the more i learnt, the more i saw what i was doing was putting me in more danger. 

Pam has a huge resource through the blogs, videos, books, phone sessions and the online ministry group which i am a part of. All of these have helped me overcome so many strongholds. 

RESCUE

As the Psalmist says Psalm 18:29 With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. That has been my experience with Pam Sheppard and RESCUE. I learnt how to break my false conversion, build up my free will and not allow my emotions to control my actions. Views that held me in chains for years have been broken, i know my value and i get my identity from me, not what outsiders say. I have learnt my personality and know myself better than i have in years which has led to better decision making. I have learnt how to distinguish a spiritual issue from a non-spiritual issue. The torment i suffered for years has stopped! The shame i felt was removed when i realized i had been tricked into worshiping the fake Jesus and others have suffered the same issues i faced. I’m gaining a respect for God, something i never had while religious, i look back and see he has been guiding and protecting me even when i was an idolater. I have seen God’s mercy and compassion firsthand when he led me to Pam Sheppard, his faithful servant. I have gained so much yet i am thrilled because there is more to come, I am now waiting to be born again which will happen at the Holy Spirit’s timing.

Jesus warns his people in Rev 18:4 Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins and lest you receive her plagues.

I have single handedly seen and experienced the plagues in the Institutional Church, my story shows God`s mercy towards to me because even though i was suffering from the plagues, i still couldn’t see that being in the I.C. was the problem. God lifted the veil during my counselling process and i finally understood why i was suffering and why i had to leave. I walk in freedom now and can fully relate to Jesus words that, `you will know the truth and it will make you free.

Healing and Rebuking Satan

7 Jan

Matthew. 12:29 “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.

If a person is strong, the enemy can’t spoil his house unless he first renders him helpless by tying him up.

Deliverance ministry has referred to Satan as the strongman, in spite of the clarity of the Lord’s words in Matthew 12:29. The strongman is US, not the enemy. Weare strong until we permit the enemy to tie us up.

When the Lord spoke these words, no one was yet born again. So I perceive it safe to assume that this scripture applies to any strong-willed person. it’s a natural fact. We will all fight for what is ours unless a thief threatens our lives with a deadly weapon. Only under such dire circumstances will we allow ourselves to sit in a chair and passively let an intruder wrap us around with a rope and tightly tie it to completely immobilize us. Even when tied up, our minds will search around the room for something sharp to untie ourselves when we get a chance.

From a spiritual perspective, whenever The Lord used the word “house,” he was symbolically referring to our souls. The enemy is the one who binds our souls with invisible chains and cords.. Since the soul consists of the mind, the emotions, the will power, and the personality, if our souls our bound, then we are certainly rendered helpless.

In order to bind a strong man, Satan will often work on the mind first, and then the body, or vice versa, depending on the strategy he employs to bind. Consider how the enemy works with sickness as an example. Many sicknesses are not real sicknesses, but are actually Satanic works. Sometimes illnesses are manifestly Satanic attacks.

For example, When Peter’s mother- in- law was laid aside with a severe fever, the Lord Jesus went to the house and rebuked the fever (Lk. 4:39). Fever is simply a symptom; it has no personality. You cannot rebuke a symptom; you can only rebuke a Being.

Accordingly, the Lord Jesus did a surprising thing. When He saw Peter’s mother- in- law ill with a fever, He rebuked the fever and it subsided. This clearly indicates that the fever was not ordinary, that it possessed a personality. In other words, it was the work of A demon. At the rebuke of the Lord, Satan retreated.

Another instance is shown in the healing of a child who was deaf and dumb from childhood (Mk. 9:17, 21, 25- 27). When the father of the child brought him to the Lord Jesus, the Lord rebuked the unclean spirit saying, “Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.” And the child was healed. The sickness had been caused by an evil spirit. At the rebuke of the Lord, the evil spirit came out of the child, and the child regained his speech and hearing.

There are three categories for the sick:

1) the medically or actually sick,
2) those who are sick because of Satan’s attack,
3)those who have been physically diagnosed with a medical condition that may or may not become an actual sickness.

The first kind can be healed naturally, or with the help of medical science or directly by the Holy Spirit. The second kind, since the sickness has a personality, it Needs to be rebuked. The third kind needs to be treated and rebuked.

Many sicknesses are indeed physical ailments, but many are the results of Satanic attacks on the body. However, with the third kind, there may be come confusion. You know you have a physical condition but when you analyze the situation, You know that you have not been careless, Yet you have physical symptoms of the condition.

The interesting thing with the third kind is that you find yourself suddenly incapacitated right at the moment when you have something of God’s work or some spiritual thing to do. This condition cannot be attributed to any natural cause. Furthermore, symptoms occur just at the time when you had some spiritual work to fulfill. Chances are you can see Satan all over this.

The third kind will disappear if you resist it before the Lord, saying, “Lord, I do not accept this sickness, for it comes from the enemy!” Most amazing, you will find that it goes away as suddenly as it came. Neither its coming nor its going can be attributed to any natural cause. It has left under rebuke.

Recently this happened to me. On 1/1/15. I said to myself “hmmmmmm”

Since there are people who are out here that consider themselves my enemy, I won’t give them any substantial info as to the nature of my condition. I won’t help them work their voodoo doll on me! LOL

Consequently , I will not assist them by revealing too much. Suffice it to say that I am feeling very well, spirit, soul and body. So the way the enemy recently came at me was with a old diagnosed physical condition that has remained relatively dormant. The condition is real, as it can be physically seen on an X-ray. yet I have not bothered by it. It remains non- symptomatic.

What immediately came to my mind when the symptom occurred was “I will not be able to do the spiritual work planned out for the upcoming year.”

when I realized what was going on, this strong woman got bold. The strongman in me rose up as I declared, “Devil, I refuse to allow YOU to bind ME. I rebuke you.

The next day, the symptom left.

Practicing Witchcraft Unawares By Creating Thoughtforms

26 Mar

blog_11Back in 1974, on my own and experimenting in ignorance. I did not realize that various practices like hypnotism and other forms of deep meditation and astrology  were an open door to inviting evil spirits into my life so I don’t stand in judgment of anyone. The truth of the matter is  I was blessed to be delivered of occultism the day I was born again, March 29, 1977. Actually,  I really did not learn  very much about occultism “back in the day.” Consequently,  since deliverance is a major part of what I do in this season, particularly with captives who have dabbled or been deeply into some form of spiritism, I have been reading about occultic practices that were unknown to me 40 years ago.  Fully cognizant of copyright protection, much of what I read was without an author’s name.  I quote from the website called Joy of Satan Ministries.

So in my perusal of online   articles  written by occultists, Satanists, and witches, they are all on one accord about how to practice witchcraft.  Simply put, occultists have to go into a deep trance through meditation, yoga, or self hypnosis  and once in an altered state of consciousness at the right level or vibration, they  use visualization and intense concentration to create a thoughtform.

How is a thoughtform defined in the literature?  To keep it simple, the best way to describe a thoughtform is to compare it to the way children create imaginary friends. A thoughtform is a non-physical entity created purely from thought. While in meditation, the thoughtform is shaped with the mind into a silver ball. Occultists use this light to shape a ball of light, compacting and drawing more and more light into the ball until it has a diameter of approximately 10-15 inches. The ball should be like a brilliant radiating sun. The brighter the ball, the more powerful it is. (Joys Of Satan Ministries) 

 Back in 2002,  a pastor contacted me for deliverance.  He awoke suddenly by the phone ringing  to people screaming in fear, and when he turned around, he saw a spinning silver ball coming toward him that first hit him in his chest and went inside of him. From that very moment, the pastor was overcome with fear.    I did not know what this silver ball was until I  recently started reading up on thoughtforms.  I treated the silverball as if it was a demon, cast out the spirit of fear from him over the phone and he was instantly delivered. 

Both white magic and black magic practitioners use thoughtforms in their work for different purposes. In such cases, the thoughtform is referred to as a “magickal assistant.”  According to an article written on the Joys od Satan website. I strongly recommend that the readers do not visit this website on your own):

 A thoughtform does not always have to be destroyed. Witches for centuries have often kept a reliable magickal assistant. Some have even spent lifetimes with the same assistant. The magickal assistant must be “fed” regularly. By “fed” this means giving it energy and programming it. Destroying a faithful and reliable servant is foolish.

A thoughtform is a small packet of condensed psychic energy. Like all energy, the thoughtform can be programmed to carry out specific tasks and/or directed to travel to a target area. The success of the thoughtform is dependent upon the mind strength and aura of its creator. A weak thought form will quickly dissipate, accomplishing nothing.

Powerful thoughtforms, when neglected can wreak havoc. Energy feeds on energy and a thought form that is several weeks old will have accumulated all kinds of different influences, emotions and other energy from its surroundings. This might appear to be amusing to some, but the mutated thought form has often been known to reappear in the locale of its creator, only to wreak havoc, due to the outside energies it has accumulated.

Recently, I cast out all demons from someone who obtained 70-80 percent relief from torment.  So when she told me that entities were still flooding into and out of her eyes, I knew they were not demons.  Once demons are in a person, they do not float out on their own.  Once inside, to get them out, they must be cast out.  This also did not sound like the work of fallen angels.  Well, to make a long story short, it was uncovered that she had created hundreds of thoughtforms through masturbation.  The literature  revealed

All quotes taken from : © Copyright 2007, Joy of Satan Ministries;
Library of Congress Number: 12-16457
:

You can masturbate and drive energy into the creature (thoughtform) at the time of programming.  You should use the energy from both your base and second chakras to incite lust. (Joy of Satan Ministries.”

I suspect that the person I am working with created multiple thoughtforms when she masturbated and visualized she was in a room with a load of men.  These could be the thoughforms that are flowing in and out of her eyes.

The truth of the matter is that I strongly suspect that thoughtforms are a much neglected subject  of deliverance.  In fact, thoughforms give new meaning to the scripture regarding casting down imaginations and every high thing that would exalt itself above the knowledge of God and bringing all thoughts into the obedience of Christ.  A thoughtform is both imaginary and real, created either by the captive’s own thought life  or by someone who has strong animosity for him or her. 

How do I intend to destroy them?  Well the author of the article on Joys of Satan teaches that to destroy a thoughtform, you ,must first summon it, visualize it coming to you and hovering in the air before you. Then you are to focus and visualize the energy vanishing  like smoke into the air and say something like “you are no more.” The author suggest that the creator of the thoughtform will have to repeat this procedure several times.

That is all well and good but I intend to do what I did 12 years ago when I cast that entity  from the pastor.  I intend to use the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth against all thoughtforms.

So how does one practice witchcraft unawares?  Well, Charismatics are doing it all the time without realizing it.  Consider Leroy Thompson, the preacher that came up with the affirmation “money cometh to ME!”   Here is a comparable  example from “the Joys of Satan” Ministries  website.  See if you notice the similarities to prosperity teachings:

Energy does not have the reasoning power as to *HOW* what you want is coming to you. Energy takes the path of least resistance, unless it is programmed. For example, many of you want more money. Don’t just affirm “Money is coming to me.” This could manifest, if undirected, say on a job where you handle money, like a cashier for example, or through your paycheck, as usual. That is the easiest way. You have to further affirm: “Large amounts of free and easy money are coming to me.” “This money is all mine to keep and spend as I wish.” You also should affirm “in a very positive and happy way for me.” You don’t want a loved one to die and leave you an inheritance or get the money in a way that would be unpleasant.
So your affirmation would go something like this: “Large amounts of free and easy money are coming to me, This money is all mine to keep and spend as I wish. This money is coming to me in a very positive and happy way for me.”

Once again, the occultists and Satanists are far more advanced in these matters than their so-called   Christian counterparts.

The Deliverance Mentoring Component of the SEW Program

6 Nov

The SEW Program stands for Spiritual Empowerment Workshop. Our online workshop includes Facebook and other social networks.

Consider that our spiritual life is like a journey.  You are on the broad road, and SEW Deliverance Mentoring   will lead you to the narrow way.  As you journey through the valleys to find your mountaintops, our trained ministers  are with you as a “travel guide” so to speak.  You have become accustomed to travelling alone, and perhaps with out even a map.  You have been walking for a long time and your bondage may have  brought you to a crossroad.

The first stage of  basic Christian mentoring is geared toward helping you make your own decisions about how much truth you are willing to receive to obtain freedom. The more you resist truth, the longer you will journey on the broad way, that leads to destruction.

CALL 518-477-5759

 THE OBJECTIVES  OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING

We have found that most Christians who need deliverance mentoring are blinded by spiritual ignorance.  Our goal at SEW is to help you attain clear spiritual vision as we coach and train you to distinguish between good and evil. 

The goal of basic Christian mentoring  is to help you to be engaged, encouraged and enlightened  in your mind. As such, our objective at is to strengthen your spirit so that you will be able to recognize God’s will and choose it above your own.

However, the goal of deliverance mentoring  is to arm you to recognize and effectively deal with  the activity of the enemy in your life.  Deliverance mentoring is broken down into 4 components:

A SEARCH FOR COSMIC EVIL DOORWAYS: These are areas  in a person’s life which are giving or have given cosmic entities the right to enter or remain in the person. Asking Jesus to “come into your heart, a counterfeit birth, a background in the occult, unconfessed sins, ungodly soul ties, unforgiveness, holding cursed possessions (occult rings, etc.) and so forth can give demons a right to inhabit and torment a person. These legal grounds can be  removed by facing the truth,  repentance, renunciation, extending forgiveness, etc.

THE EXAMINATION OF STRONGHOLDS: These are basically incorrect thinking patterns in your mind. For example, if  you think God is angry with you because you have committed the unpardonable sin, then you will feel like He is. This stronghold may open you to panic attacks, paranoia  or obsessive compulsive behavior. Strongholds are torn down in each mentoring session  as a trained minister and mentee work together to reprogram your mind to think differently. You might say that the SEW approach to a stronghold is to enhance critical thinking capabilities and simple commonsense. Together the mentor and the mentee destroy the strength of the debilitating thought.

RESTORATION OF YOUR SOUL: Renewal is often required when counseling a person who has been abused, raped or has been exposed to a traumatic experience. Becoming whole  is a work of the Holy Spirit and is received as a captive is  delivered from  the inner hurt and pain from past experiences. Then   the Holy Spirit  comes in and heal those wounds. Forgiveness often plays a part in this releasing process. Oftentimes, self-forgiveness needs to be received as the captive may be   holding things against him or herself which must be released. Once truth is known and accepted, freedom is obtained.

EXPULSION OF THE ENEMY Confronting  cosmic entities directly  is where either devils or demons are  driven out of the client by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of the Holy Ghost. After success in the first three stages,  expulsion is often un-necessary. However, in various cases, direct confrontation of the powers of darkness cannot be avoided.  At this stage, the client MUST sign and notarize an informed consent form called the DDF, the Deliverance Disclaimer Form. There are no exceptions. 

Dedicated Ministers who themselves were captives  have been trained to conduct mentoring sessions. Visit our page called SEW Ministers to read a brief bio of 7 of them. I recommend that you give SEW mentor a one month trial and you will not be sorry. To register call 518-477-5759 or send an email to pamsheppard911@yahoo.com.

Be Set Free From Deliverance Ministries

4 Nov

A message from Pam: BE SET FREE FROM DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES!

What I have been running into is that there are many people out there who need DELIVERANCE FROM DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES—– FOR THERE IS MUCH “QUACKERY AND NONSENSE” GOING ON.  Uninformed deliverance workers may be the root cause of the severity of your present bondage and/or torment.  It is a sin and a shame!!! Deliverance from deliverance  is what you need.

The purpose of ministering deliverance is to set free those who are in bondage. As Jesus was sent forth to preach deliverance to the captives (Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to… preach deliverance to the captives…”), so we are also sent out (John 20:21, “Then said Jesus to them… as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”) to do the works He did (John 14:12, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also…”), and this includes casting out of devils (Matthew 10:8).

The ministry of deliverance is about bringing spiritual victory and freedom to those who are in bondage to devils and demons. It doesn’t matter what you call it (demonized, possessed, oppressed, etc.), if you are in demonic bondage, whether you need to tear down a stronghold, break up a legal ground, cast a demon out, or all three… it’s still deliverance, because it’s setting the captives free. There are 5 important elements of this ministry. I  train my deliverance ministers to be  knowledgeable of all 5 elements so that they are  prepared to address them without hesitation:

Casting Down Imaginations by Receiving Truth: Setting captives free is more about getting them to receive the truth than it is about  commanding demons to come out. This is a grave mistake that causes a lot of people to walk away from a deliverance still in bondage. There is more to it than simply casting out demons. In Luke 9:42, we are told a story of how Jesus not only rebuked demons in a boy who was mentally affected by evil spirits, but also is said to have healed the boy. There is no mention of the boy needing physical healing, but if you look up the word healed in this passage, one of the meanings is, “to free from errors and sins…”, which is likely what Jesus did with the boy, Jesus removed the boy’s legal grounds (sins) and freed him from errors (strongholds). This case of deliverance required more than just rebuking demons!

I myself had a spirit of divination which is a demon.  However, no one ever cast it from me and I never cast it from myself.  I simply received the truth and cancelled my desire to know the future but to simply walk by faith and not by sight. Truth MADE me free.  Crucifying my flesh in the area of desiring supernatural power  to know and predict the future MADE me free.

Tearing down strongholds: Strongholds are people, places and things  that have obtained control in your life, one way or the other and are often set up and nurtured by demons through lies and deception.  For example, if you were raped or had a frightening, unexpected car accident, a stronghold of fear was established IN you by a demon. Demons thrive on strongholds, and use them to hang around a person and torment them. Failing to tear down strongholds can hold up a deliverance and prevent us from walking in complete spiritual freedom.

Removing legal rights: Legal rights are things that give demons permission to enter and remain in our lives. Before demons can often be cast out, it is important to address and remove these legal rights.  Failing to remove legal rights can hold up a deliverance very easily. Demons receive legal rights not so much because of what other’s have done but because of what YOU ignorantly did to invite them in.  You need to understand HOW you invited them in BEFORE an entity is confronted, or the demon will trick you into inviting him back!

Closing Demonic Doorways: Demons enter the soul through 7 doorways or gateways. We determine through a process of inquiry, which doorway is open: the crown, the third eye, the throat, the heart, the navel, the sex organs or the anus. We also determine what demons need to be cast out.

Casting out the demons: This requires two basic elements: knowledge of your authority in Christ Jesus over the powers of the enemy, and faith in that authority. Demons are cast out with a simple spoken command, such as, “I command the spirit of fear to come out in the name of Jesus!” We ask those we work with to complete a deliverance questionnaire called the DAF, Deliverance Assessment Form  that will give us an overview of their background, the bondages they are facing, the root or source of their problem, as well as legal grounds, strongholds and any particular spirits that need to be addressed. Then we begin to work with them to break up any legal grounds, and tear down any strongholds together we  see in your  life and of course, cast out any demons that need to go. If it takes more than 15 minutes, which includes the prayer, to cast out a demon, either there is no demon there or the preliminary work was not completely done.  If you have rolled around the floor in a deliverance session for hours or days, all you did was pick up MORE demons.

   There are also times when even  the most talented people do not know how to move beyond certain obstacles on their own.  Coping skills can become  overwhelmed and faith can be weakened.  This happens to all of us at some point in our spiritual walk.  Yet it takes a special kind of

The first demon I cast out was in 1983.

Phone counseling, training or mentoring will help you with your problem and there are many other benefits to consider as well.  So—
