HOW WITCHES AND WARLOCKS MANIPULATE OUR DREAMS

3 Jan

By Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

18 Nov

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

The Bondage of A Demonic Soultie

2 Jul

Illicit Sex

By Carol A. Davis

According to Pastor Pam’s’ blog article, Demons Tie Souls Together in a Not so Tender Trap, a demonic or ungodly soul tie is like an invisible rope between two or more persons that fallen angels and demons can use to their advantage to cross or travel from one person to another. Some of the most common forms are between men and women who are having sex with each other.

From Pastor Pam’s article:

Holy, divine soul ties between married couples draw husbands and wives together like magnets, while soul ties between fornicators can draw a beaten and abused woman to the man who in the natural realm she would hate and run from, but instead she runs to him even though he doesn’t love her, and treats her like dirt.In the demonic world, unholy soul ties can serve as bridges between two people to pass demonic garbage through. Other soul ties can do things such as allow one person to manipulate and control another person, and the other person is unaware of what is going on or knows what is going on, but for no real reason, allows it to continue.

I can definitely relate to this, and I’m sure the majority of people have experienced this in one way or another. I was madly in love with one man for years. We were on and off for 10 years. He was a musician and could write these songs that would just grip your soul. He wasn’t much to look at, but he had local fans who were obsessed with him because of his music. I would listen to his CD’s for hours and hours and was obsessed with him. But he treated me like dirt – always had other women, would disappear and then reappear, etc. I hardly ever got to see him, because he was always “busy” (probably with other women), but he was always on my mind.

Whenever I’d get to actually see him, I’d get there and suddenly be kind of turned off. I’d find myself not being as physically attracted to him as I had imagined, and he was kind of obnoxious. It wouldn’t feel like how I’d pictured it the entire couple weeks I’d been dreaming about seeing him. But I’d disregard those feelings, because I had already made up my mind. Sometimes I’d hear bad things about him that, had it been anyone else, would have sent me running. For instance, he had worked at a coffee shop at one point. He left that job, and I later found out from one of his ex-coworkers that he’d been fired for stealing $2000. But it didn’t match up with the picture I had of him in my mind, so I would just push those types of things out of my mind.

He had me putting up with things and doing things I said I would never do. It was OK for him to sleep with other girls as long as it was understood who was his lady and who the side-pieces were. He wanted to do threesomes, and it wasn’t something I wanted to do, but to keep him happy, I agreed to it (we never got around to it). He let my parents’ house get foreclosed on because of one late payment that wouldn’t have been late if not for them having to pay for my $200 medicine, while meanwhile he was in Vegas throwing $10,000 in the air at a stripclub. I had held him down plenty of times when he was broke. This was the type of situation you cannot tell your girlfriends about, unless you want to get laughed at or cussed out. “Like, seriously, he will spend $10,000 on strippers and let you drown, yet you really think he is your boyfriend?”

So, to sum it up, he treated me bad and I really wasn’t even that attracted to him, but something kept me coming back for more. This is the type of thing a demonic soul tie can do – have you doing things that make no sense.

The thing is, the enemy sets you up to get in these situations. At the time, you are all turned on, and everything looks good to you. The mood might be right, and the man himself may look good to you, but if you could see the vile entities standing by just waiting for you to give it up, because they just need a way in, that state of arousal would be gone quick. You’d probably be so disgusted you would throw up.

There have been a few times even since I’ve been born again that my flesh has been tempted – either to go see one of my old male friends or to look at some porn and take care of myself. But all I have to do is remind myself what is really going on, and that kills that right then and there. I picture a scene not unlike the picture above, because that is truly what is going on.

Can anyone relate?

Women In Ministry: Joined in Barbed Wire!

20 Mar

JOINED IN BARBED WIRE!

ALL MARRIAGES ARE NOT JOINED BY GOD!

When I was an unsaved atheist, God actually did join me in marriage.  I also had sense enough to pick a man who was compatible to me in every way.  Although my first husband  died of a massive heart attack when he was very young, he left me with a jewel, the most important person in my life—my daughter who today is invaluable on so many levels.  However, once I became a Christian, I lost ALL good commonsense, assuming that I could not serve God unless I was joined to a Christian man.

Like all stories, mine can be long and involved so suffice me to put things “in a nutshell.”The  enemy had convinced me that I was called to prison ministry. In fact, a  bald-headed, huge and muscular Mr. Clean looking being came forth in a dream and bellowed at me, “I am an angel sent from God to show you your future.”The “angel” sat me down at a blueprint table and showed me a plan for several huge facilities to house prisoners and substance abusers. At the time, my uncle had promised me 300 acres of land so it “all tied together” in a neat little package. The angel also said “The man you will marry will head up the entire project. You will provide the spiritual and counseling component.”

My full testimony of how I escaped Satan’s traps are in this book. CLICK HERE TO PREVIEW

This dream was then used to draw me into marriages–with not one but two different men with serious felony records–both men sent to destroy me. The first marriage was 3 years later to Billy G., in 1988 and the second marriage in 1996 to Richard C. Billy  was married already but he was in prison. I had dated him in 1979 when he was free , not knowing that  he was married  even then. So one day I went to visit him in prison. Immediately after the visit, a power came on me so strong, with the message “Billy  is THE ONE.” Six months later, we were married in prison. I thought he was going to be released soon, not knowing that Billy  had TWO consecutive  sentences which totaled 27 years. That was 1988. He was released from  prison in December 2010 lived for 5 months and then died of a sudden stroke.

The bottom line is that  the marriage was an 8 year nightmare.  Believe it or not, I was beat down by Billy  in prison, while on a conjugal visit, on more than just one occasion. I would walk out of prison with a busted lip and other abrasions and lacerations.  I thought I was marrying a Christian, when Billy turned out to be a New Age occultist, an amateur warlock  who told me that “he had chains and gates on my soul.”

No he didn’t. On May 10, 1990, Billy  predicted that I would have a car accident in 2 weeks.  Thirteen days later, my car was hit in the back, while I was  on my way to the hospital because of the stress headache that I had for 2 weeks following his “prediction”.  I did not take his prediction seriously, yet interestingly enough,  the headache started the day he spoke his curse. On May 24, 1990,  I was on a 4 lane highway, in the middle of the day, driving about 65 miles an hour, headed for the hospital when my car was hit from behind but not totalled. The power of God came on me and I drove that car like a racecar driver.  When I drove my wreck to the hospital,   I discovered that my blood pressure was approaching stroke level.

  I broke out of Billy’s  barbed wire fence with a  chronic case of hypertension.

Then I met Richard, the love of my life. We met briefly and I told him about my dream from the angel. Richard had architect skills, so shortly after we met, he constructed a fantastic blueprint. I thought he was “the ONE” cause he could oversee building the first site. RICHARD ALSO  was NOT the one. Rich was even worst than Billy, if that could be possible. That was a 9 year nightmare with a heroin addict, a criminal with an anti-social personality. 

But the light broke through the darkness and I was set free from Richard by the hand of God.

As an aside—  Believe it or not, —Billy  sent me a letter two months before his release from prison, an obvious  invitation to “resume our marriage once he was released.” I spoke with him once, a few days after he was released. I was polite but I was firm. He died 5 months later of a stroke, 21 years to the day that he spoke a curse of death upon me.  May 10, 2011. He was buried on Friday, the 13th.  Was that the stroke that Billy had intended for me with his 13 day prediction?   God knows.

What you need to know in all of  this is that “if the enemy worked something against you and “IT WORKED,”  HE WILL TRY AND TRY AGAIN, EVEN USING THE SAME PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS. 

The lessons that I learned are not really for me.  I have the luxury of age, where I can look back over the last 40 years and see that after the death of my first husband, there was no man in God’s plan for me.  In this hour, I must press forward.  The “I’m waiting for my soul mate days” are OVER. Not that I don’t love men and romance because I certainly do.  I just have other priorities today and unfortunately, I have assessed what I desire to do with the rest of my days and “a significant other” is just not in my plans.  I can’t take the risk.

I think the message that I have to pass on to the brethren are summarized in 10 statements:

1.  Don’t just assume that because you are sensual, romantic, excellent spouse material, that there is a husband in your future.  Man was not made for woman.  It is good for him, not to be alone.  Any man who wants a wife can have one.   However, a woman can be alone and do well. 

2.  God did not call anyone “in a team.”  The work that God has for YOU to do as a woman may  not require you to have a husband.  Co-ministry can be rich and rewarding.  However, as a minister for 25 years within the religious system, I have met my share of miserable pastor’s wives.  The grass is not always greener on the other side.

3.  If you are in bondage to your desire for a mate, the enemy will take advantage of this weakness, time and time again. You must overcome the cultural cues embedded EVERYWHERE that you are less than a woman, without a man or without children.

4.  Certainly, fornication is a sin.  However, do not marry anyone JUST to avoid sex outside of marriage. If you slipped and got pregnant, DO NOT MARRY THE MAN  SOLELY FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILD.

5.  THE ENEMY NEVER GIVES UP ON THIS.  I thought that at my age, I  am  far “under the radar,” yet men seem “TO FIND ME, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.”  Even my 90 year old mother has still not gotten over her desire to have a man.  So don’t think that you’ll simply “age out.”  Not so.

6.  Learn to enjoy the simple things of life.  Don’t covet what others have. Learn to love being single. Be thankful that you woke up this morning in your right mind.  Learn to love yourself.  Love your body because its YOURS and not because you desire to seduce a partner with it.

7.  If marriage is for you, develop yourself into the kind of wife that is going to be a blessing to a man.  Don’t expect PRINCE CHARMING unless you are PRINCESS CHARMING.  Don’t depend upon what a  man can do for you.

8.  Don’t settle for anything less than WHO you are.  In fact, since a man’s ego is essential to his being, make sure that he knows who he is and where he is going.

9. The bible was written for and by a generation that for the most part, was not promiscuous.  In other words, “virgins were the norm.”  I have counseled with clients who were technically virgins, yet in the spirit, they were not.  Too much experimentation.  A virgin is a rare species in our time. When sex has been entered into, the body desires more.  It is just a natural thing.  The body will burn for it.  So don’t let Satan condemn you just because you have natural passions.  You can learn ways how to “bring your passions under submission to your own will.”

10.  Last but certainly not least, if you have a dream, a vision or receive a prophetic message which declares that “this is the person for you sent by God,” run like a bat out of hell.  It’s the devil.  God does not choose our mates.  He leaves it up to our own free will.  Don’t just take an isolated case out of the old testament.  You are not Isaac or Rebecca.

Choose your mate with good commonsense.

Crucified With Christ By Pam Sheppard

28 Nov

CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST

What I have noticed over the years is that very often we don’t know that the Holy Ghost has been in our midst until after He has left the scene.  For example, this week a thought came into my head that I assumed was my own.  The thought was, “how is it that you spiritually survive when you have lost so much that you depended on?”  Immediately, I was reminded of the fact that for at least 25 years,  my spiritual life was dependent upon people, places and things.  By things, I mean “works” and “practices.”

Among the people were those I pastored and the many ministers and
members that  I fellowshipped with, as well as two different husbands
who I was compelled to divorce as well as family, friends and associates
that I had to “cut loose”.

For me there was only one place:  the church.  I was in church constantly as a pastor, a member and a visitor.  At times, I was in church as many as 6 days a week, hours at a time.

Furthermore, I frequently visited other churches, several times a month.  I also preached and taught in prison for almost 10 years.   Among the things or “works” that I no longer do is my first love,— developing sermons  and preaching.  I practiced healing, deliverance ministry, weeping and wailing in intercession, aka,travailing, and speaking in tongues.  I also moved in the “slain in the spirit” ministry, where people fell to the floor at the touch of my hand or at times, when  I  simply waved my hand, some fell slain. I saw into the future regularly,experiencing supernatural experiences that I believed at the time were manifestations of each of the 9 gifts of the Holy Ghost.

I lost it ALL!

At the beginning of the century, with 9/11/01 as my target date of change, I
had no idea that when I prayed “Lord, if there is any darkness around me,
please expose it,” that practically EVERYTHING–people, places and
things–would be exposed as filled with darkness and deception.

So when the thought came into my mind, “Pam,how do you live and survive today without all of that?”  I had not yet come up with an answer, until my first client of the day asked me the very same question. So when she asked the very question that had
just hit my  own thoughts, I immediately realized  that the Holy Ghost was using her to speak to me.  Interestingly enough, as I counsel others, the Holy Ghost  frequently uses contents of  the session to have a ONE on one session with me!

I can’t recall in detail how I answered the question for it took practically the entire session  to do so.  However, what I recall is what the client said to me.  She sounded, awed, or speechless when she replied, “Wow.  Pam,you are really living for Christ because you have given up ALL for His sake.” 

I was shocked by her words because since my losses are predominately
religious in nature,  I had not looked at them  from that particular
perspective.  The conclusion that I had come to is that “every
religious person or thing could be  and was removed from me but  I
held on to ONE thing that could not be removed. 

 That ONE thing is my faith and assurance that I am
saved, born again, and when all is said and done, my salvation is
“enough.” Jesus Christ of Nazareth is enough for me.  I
have ceased from my own works and I rest in the Lord.

However, how does one arrive at such a place within his or her spiritual walk?

It is not easy–at first.  As the writer of Hebrews declares,
“one must LABOR  or struggle to enter into the
Lord’s rest” (Hebrews: 4)   The familiar expression:
no pain, no gain does not really ring true in the spirit..  The remarkable
thing is that like giving birth in the natural, once the labor and
struggle of delivery has been achieved, you simply can’t remember the pain.For
example,  I do not recall the pain of walking away from not
one husband, but two.  Once I realized that they were both sent
from the devil to destroy me and hinder my walk in the spirit with the Lord,
the pain was minimized, to say the least!

Once God revealed to me that sermonizing was not from Him but that
it is merely a man-made art, I can no longer recall the pain of not
doing something that I had grown to love. Once one has actually ENTERED
the Lord’s rest, than obedience is in no way painful.  Loss is not painful
either. You simply “move on” and live once you have “entered
in.”.That is why I didn’t use the title, no PAIN no gain.  I simply
cannot recall the pain of losing so much.  However,with each loss,  I continue to
 experience the gain of a new revelation. Fruit simply grows without much effort. I have come to learn that salvation is truly my pearl of great price. The pain of selling all to guard and protect my born again spirit  has been my great gain.

WOMEN, WISE UP AND RISE UP!

WOMEN, WISE UP AND RISE UP! By Pam Sheppard

I must admit that in the first 5 decades of my life, I did not particularly like women because in my  world space, there were just  too many  meely mouthed, back stabbin  female crabs in a barrel. And even though I had my issues with men as well, I liked them better and preferred their company and friendship to that of my own gender.  In fact, when I was in my twenties and thirties, my best friends were gay.  We could shop and do the hair, nails and dress up thing, but when I was pulled into a cat fight, their masculine strength would rescue me in  a New York minute.

Now that I have been saved 34 years, with 30 years  in ministry under my belt, I have really grown to love my sistahs and my sisters. Don’t know what I would do with out my crew.   Yet, online, I have run into a wild, unruly bunch  of professing Christian women who are like bulls or heifers  in a China shop.  I call them, “Holy Phony Silly Women!” They are constantly posting teaching material, yet claiming “oh, I am merely about Christian fellowship and I am not a teacher.I am simply “sharing.”

Holy Phony Silly women are those who think they can step out on the Internet—on Facebook, in chat rooms, by email, Skype, YouTube, you name it, they are out there from all over the world, buttin heads with Christian  folk like wild heifers. The freedom of the world-wide web has mesmerized  them to forget Pauls words–-not to use liberty as a license to rebellion. Paul  said it like this.  “All things are expedient to me but all things are not lawful or helpful.”

Much too much that women are “teaching”  and “preaching”  on the web is not only NOT helpful, but it is harmful.

The bible also tells us to avoid silly women and unfortunately, in spite of my affection and concern  for them, I have to turn away. It is not necessary to know a lot to teach.  The issue is that what ya know— ya KNOW!— bottom-line is that what you teach should be without error.

One who teaches needs to be able to discern fact from truth, a hypothesis from a finding,  a  supposition from a conclusion.  Yet women are on video clips and writing Facebook notes and tweeting  about spiritual growth and end time matters. when they have not a clue.  Then, when they are  confronted, they angrily  justify and defend themselves with,

 “Oh, I am just a housewife.  I am not teaching.  I am just “spending quality  time with my online friends. I am not as bold as YOU Pam, to say that I am a teacher.  Oh no.  I am not a teacher.  I am just “having conversation.”  For after all, I am too humble to appoint myself, as YOU have done.   I have the fear of the Lord because I know that a woman is not supposed to teach.  And I know that teachers receive the greater judgment and condemnation for teaching error!”

Holy Baloney!

This is that same ole slippery way that women deal with their husbands.  You’ve played your manipulative games with him for so long,–letting him believe that he is running your home when you KNOW the truth is  that YOU are!!! Consequently, you rationalize  that you can also manipulate God and pretend that “you are not teaching YOUR interpretation of the word of God.

Let’s get real, Sisters.  This is Holy Phoniness to the max. It stinks in my spiritual nostrils. You not only quote scripture, but you declare to people how they ought to worship and “get in the presence of the Lord,” whether or not to fast, how to fast and pray, —and even deeper–that there is no rapture, that Jesus is not literally coming back but that it is a “spiritual” return, that people should not prepare themselves for end times, that those who speak in tongues are going to hell, that Pentecostals are all unsaved heathens.  That various folk are false prophets—I’ve heard a woman call them lunatics.  And on and on it goes, day after day.

But this is not “teaching” you see! It is that great ole euphemism called “sweet fellowship with the saints and harmless, idle conversation”  Oh, no.  YOU  not a teacher.  Yeh!

To that, I say this.  Consider the “technical virgins” of today.  They believe themselves to be righteous because they have never experienced coitus by vaginal penetration, yet they masturbate 4 times a day to online porn or they are having anal and oral sex on a regular basis. “Look yall, I’m still a virgin. Yeh!

So I say to Holy Phony Silly Women. don’t think that God cannot distinguish between a euphemism and the real thing. He can tell the difference between Christian fellowship and teaching. You are TEACHING!

After 30 years in ministry, if I don’t know my calling  BY NOW and if I am not bold enough to stand in it, then I am as Holy Phony as the rest of them..

Yes, I am a teacher. But I am also a pastor, an evangelist, a prophet and if I knew what an Apostle is today, I might be one of them too. I am not ashamed of my calling simply because I am a woman. Man did not call me. God did! Man has to live with what God has already done!

So “either teach, as WOMEN OF GOD,  OR GET OFF THE POT, Sister!

If you decide to teach, I can train you in 3-6 months. You don’t have to affiliate with me and no one has to know that I am the one who “undeceived you” and you can go about your merry way. It won’t matter to me.  My concern is for those who are following you that  some of you are feeding error every day, yet taking no responsibility for your error for fear that God will condemn you for teaching.

He will condemn you for being a hypocrit. You are teaching because the Lord has called you to teach anf you are pretending not to be a teacher because you are a woman. Sounds like a Catch 22 to me.

Time is runnin out, Gurl!

Humble yourself  right now, Gurl,  to the fact that you are teaching without proper training! Time is too short to be narrowminded and petty. You need to get your act together, like yesterday! ASAP! WOMEN, YOU MUST NOT KEEP SILENT FOR YOU MUST TEACH. EITHER STAND UP AND TEACH BUT GET TRAINED FIRST.REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT.

Any Sister  who FEELS A CALL TO TEACH, wise up and rise up—–, call me at 518-477-5759. I’ll hook you up!!!

THE ALTERED STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE INCUBUS/SUCCUBUS DEMON

2 Nov

Excerpts from “the New Idolatry” by Pam Sheppard CLICK THE COVER TO PREVIEW

Satan, the Anti-Christ and fallen angels can only plant their agenda into the minds of humanity through the altered state  of consciousness.. As the sexual orgasm is itself an altered state, Dr. I. D. E. Thomas offers a significant insight:

“The devil uses sexual orgasm to implant his ideas into a victim’s mind. He is aware that one of the human experiences that comes closest to the ecstasy of communication with God is that of spiritual orgasm between lovers. If ever a human being acts as if he were possessed without actually being possessed, it is when he is overwhelmed by the irresistible tide of desire. Here he trembles, groans, writhes, cries out…in a bitter sweet experience that defies description.”

”Furthermore, the authors of the book called “Devils and Demons and the Return of the Nephilim,” add yet another clue. John Klein and Adam Spears concur with Dr. Thomas concerning fallen angels. Called “devils,” the primary objective of fallen angels, aka devils, is to fulfill Satan’s endtime agenda by planting their ideas into the human mind through the ASC (altered state of consciousness), while demons—the spirits of the giants (the Nephilim)— who died in the Flood— simply lust after sensory experiences. Once human themselves, demons simply want to feel human again, because they have lost their physical bodies forever.

“Whereas demons want to feed on human experience regardless of the cost to the host involved, we believe that devils want more. It follows logically that devils want your identity and authority that God gave uniquely to each one of us. They are by nature territorial, refusing to share their possessions with any other devils. They don’t mind sharing a person with a host of demons, however. Demons don’t interfere with what the identity devils crave.”

Throughout the totality of the testimonies of Christian sexual contact with spirit entities known to me personally, there is a common theme that I have found to be consistent with UFO messages to the unsaved, namely, “since we can have sex with you, we can also procreate with you.” In their book “Alien Encounters,” Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman provide important clues to unraveling the underlying agenda of alien encounters as they correspond with the demonic messages sent to professing Christian women through witchcraft, religiosity, demonic copulation and demonology:

Abductees who are taken from their rooms usually describe a bright light outside and a humming noise. This is followed by an encounter with hairless, tree to five foot tall, gray-skinned entities. Abductees generally report the onset of paralysis and a floating sensation. Many will report being subsequently floated out of their house either through a window or in some cases through the walls or through the roof to an awaiting alien craft.

Once inside the craft, abductees universally report some sort of physical examination…..Through telepathic communication, female abductees are told that the procedure is being performed to retrieve ovum for the purpose of reproduction. Many female abductees claim that after an abduction they find incisions or scars on their lower abdomen that were not present prior to the encounter. An anesthetic of some kind is generally employed, and the details of the exam are usually recalled under hypnotic regression….male abductees often report procedures for the retrieval of sperm….According to some researchers, the retrieval of sperm and ova and the execution of ‘reproductive procedures’ seem to be central to the abduction phenomenon.” (Missler and Eastman, pg. 106-107)

Quite understated, Paul prophetically warned Timothy that in the last days, some professing Christians would depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. The public at large looks upon the Jim Jones and the mass suicide at Guyana as an atypical disaster of a Christian cult, not endemic within or characteristic of the entire church system. Dramatic and well publicized in the 70’s, no one realized that the entire organized church would shortly become a cult. A few years ago, I found a list of cults that had 500 professing Christian churches on it. Yet Roman Catholicism, the mother of the organized church and the cult of cults was not even included on the list. Likewise, the more I studied, the more I realized that Protestantism was simply a “different kind of cult” as well as the rest of them. Klein and Spears have clearly sent the elect some sober and extremely sound advice, “to come out of Her,” with a serious warning, quoted below:“

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.”

TELL MR. POTENTIAL TO "MAN UP" OR "STEP OFF!"

27 Oct

Mr. Potential looks good but the devil sent him to drain YOU!It seems that I had more sense when I was in my early 20’s —an  unsaved worldly young woman, than I did when I was saved and in my early 30’s.  Some might have called me “a 20 year old  un-virtuous woman” because  I demanded  back then that no man  could sleep with me unless he paid  me. Certainly a sinful, worldly perspective,  STILL—no man  took me down.   Nor would I spend a dime on a man, not even a birthday card.  Men made it plain to me that all they wanted from me was my body.  So I said to myself, “if THAT is how it is, then to have this body, Mr. Man, you have to pay to play. I will NOT let you break my heart and so my heart is cold toward you.” Whenever I hear my man  Maxwell sing,“How Can  You Be So Cold, Good God the Gurl’s Gone Cold.  You just can’t leave this. You can’t quit this. The gurl means business, I shake my head in remembrance of that girl who died when Jesus came a callin! lol

 WOW!  I got glorious saved on March 29, 1977. I was 33 years old.    I walked in the power of love, forgiveness, understanding for all people.  My cynicism was replaced with an “I’m going to save the world” mentality and I’m going to keep myself chaste and become someone’s virtuous wife and I reach down to pull up the weak and needy.  Yet, without proper understanding, I allowed myself to become more than one man’s  doormat. So when the enemy sent losers into my life, I welcomed them ALL.

Here is a bit of wisdom from a senior citizen who has been there and  done that.  The worst thing you can do is to fall for a man who has “potential.” 

You make more money than he does.  You are more educated than he is. You have a job but he is “finding himself” because society has so emasculated him.  You pay your bills, have your own place to live, and you are paying to drive your own car.  You may even be a single mom who is taking responsible care of your children by yourself. 

 Look out, Gurl!  If he hasn’t already, Satan plans to  send  Mr. Potential to  try to discover if you are a potential sucker. Mr. Potential is the kind of guy that will start out draining you slowly.  The next thing you know, you are loaning him your car so that he can find a job.  Then you find some earrings in the glove compartment that are not YOURS!  You have already been suckered.

If you are still playing the dating game, here is a rule of thumb.  Never date a man who is merely “upwardly mobile” but needs a helping hand to arrive at your social standing and way of life. No, Baby Gurl!   He has got to have exactly what YOU have, better yet—he should have a better ride, a better crib, and more money in the bank than you have.  Why?  Because built into a man is a competitive spirit.  While he may use YOUR goods and services, deep down, he will harbor envy and jealousy over the fact that you have more to offer than he does and he will be hell bent to one day, get even, and drag your nose through the mud because your success irritated him. 

So you need a man who is slightly superior to YOU! Otherwise, Mr. Potential will drag you to the poor house and the soup kitchen.

Take it from someone who married not one but three  Mr. Potentials  each  of whom turned out to be losers. Two of them are now dead and one of them pretends to be dead because he knows that to mess with me in this hour  is to bring the wrath of God upon himself. The fear of the Lord is upon my third and last husband. That is a good thing. Richard  learned a thing or two trying to bring me down during the 9 years I was married to HIM! Sister, if you are married to a loser, then you will find yourself risking  what God blessed you to accumulate for yourself. 

Here is a memorable example for you to consider. 

 I went into prison and married my second husband, Billy.  We were married for 8 years.  I spent about 8000 a year as a prison wife, travelling hundreds of miles on dangerous roads every week, for 7 of those years.  Buying him everything from sneakers to food to expensive typewriters.  Add it up.  That would be about $64,000 spent on a man who put a witchcraft spell upon me in an attempt to kill me by causing me to have a car accident!!!!   (that’s yet another post! lol)

 I even  risked my job marrying  Billy because I worked in the field of corrections and my peers felt that I disrespected them by marrying a convict.  So beside the pressures of being a prison wife, I had to constantly look over my shoulder to see which of my peers was trying to frame me to lose a job I ended up keeping  for 17 years, until I walked out myself in 1997.  While my second ex  was incarcerated, I paid $1500 a correspondence course  for Billy  to become a paralegal.  Mr. Potential  was an A student.  So  Billy contested the divorce and tried to take half of my resources–my house, my car and my pension that I live quite well off of right now. The judge asked him, “How much did you contribute to your wife’s resources.”  He responded “Nothing.”  The judge answered:  “And NOTHING is what you shall receive!.”

You may not be so lucky. It was very obvious to the judge that a man who is incarcerated the entire marriage has not even bought salt for the shaker.   So if you marry “Mr. Potential,” and he co-habitates with you for a while, you may one day find yourself paying HIM alimony. 

 Let a word to the wise be sufficient.

Our ministers provide a kind of commitment to you that you will find nowhere in the organized church.

ARE YOU STUCK ON STUPID ABOUT PRINCE CHARMING?

26 Oct

I believe I was stuck on stupid from 1974-2005 about this soul mate thing. 

 Count girls.  That is a total of 31 years Some of you are not even 31 years old yet. 

 So take it from an old gal who travelled the  romantic yellow brick road for a long time, who realized on the day that she had her final divorce papers in her hand  from her third marriage, that the search was over.  I had an “ah ha” moment of ” Oh well, I guess there was no soul mate, no Prince Charming for me after all!!!!. 

 In 2005, I was a ripe young age of 62, about to receive my social security! 

 But that’s nothin when I share my mother’s story.  My mother will be 90 in a few months.  At the age of 87, she had me searching the web for HER prince charming, a man by the name of Charles Collins, the lost love that got away and married somebody else!.  I searched diligently with no results .  He is either dead or in a nursing home.  That is not all,  My mother’s sister  Olga was married for more than 50 years, yet while a widow, she hit 80 and met a fabulous, good-looking man about her own age and it looked like life begins at 80. Unfortunately, he died of a massive heart attack  on Thanksgiving and she was so grieved, she succumbed to cancer and died a month later.

Now when I was a young, unsaved woman in my early 20’s , I was quite cynical and so I protected my heart by having affairs with married men.  My rationale was this.  Men are gonna cheat and knowing my temper, I’d probably kill a cheater in a momentary rage.  Back in the day, I was not a sistah to mess with.   A married man was safe back then  because I reasoned to myself  “he is not cheating on me.”  He is cheating on his wife so I don’t have to kill him and I can keep myself out of jail.  I was successful.  Then just before I became a Christian, I was set up on the Prince Charming thing by a psychic astrologer whose name was Norvelle.  Norvelle sold me a bill of goods and I bought into it, hook line and sinker for the next 31 years. Now that, Dear Heart, is being STUCK ON STUPID BY a demon who used Norvelle to send me that lying prophecy.   Norvelle even described the man in some detail.  He told me that we would be “working together” in a grand career. 

While a state government ambitious striver, I looked for Prince Charming among the lawyers and the professional men.  Once I entered into ministry, well there were scores of ministers to consider, many who set their eyes upon me.  However, a fallen angel took the baton from Norvelle and revealed to me in a dream  that since I was entering into addiction, recovery and prison ministry, my soul mate was a felon in recovery, who had become a born again Christian.  So I married not one, but TWO drug addict felons. 

While holding on to my last husband and trying to have a child in my late 50’s, the Lord spoke and said, “both of your husbands were sent to you by the devil to destroy you.”

So while I stood there in 2005 with the divorce papers in my hand, I got “un-stuck” from being stupid, quite happy that I did not have a child at the age of 58!!!.

Here is a tidbit of info that could help you from “gettin stuck.” 

67 when this picture was taken. Will be 68 "soon."

Just because you are attractive and you have sexual desire, and you believe that anything you ask God for He will provide simply because YOU want it, remember me.  The bible says that it is not good for a man to be alone and that he should have a wife.  The bible does not say the same for a woman.  You, Sistah and Sister can be alone. 

 When I was young and dumb, I could not even think of being without a man.  It was too heavy a thought for me back then.  But now that I have 40 years to look back over,I was always alone anyway, with the Lord I have survived, became wise, and I am filled with peace and joy WITHOUT a man!!!  LOL.  I do my own thing, Gurl!!! lol. Cook and clean when I feel like it.  In fact, I have a housekeeper who cleans for ME!  

I don’t unpack no man’s baggage today. I don’t knock YOU if you have a good man, My Sister.  I say, right on to you!  I am not speaking to you.  I am speaking to the one who has been putting her life on hold in God, waiting for Mr. Right.  Honey, the devil plans to send you “Mr. Wrong!”

If you have something to do for the Lord, don’t let the devil suggest to you that you can’t serve Jesus Christ of Nazareth without a partner. It is a lie from hell.
