The Reality of a Babe in Christ

17 Mar

I recall Pastor Pam, of Pam Sheppard Ministries, saying that there is spiritual deception that can become a threat to a babe in Christ.

First of all, to become a babe in Christ, you will need to have a genuine born again experience, and not a false conversion.  If you have attended church all your life and proclaim yourself to be a Christian but you followed the easy believism that is being influenced around the world, or the “I accept Jesus” practice, consider that there is a big chance a genuine born again experience did not occur.

Pam Sheppard Ministries has a wealth of information on how to overturn a counterfeit birth experience. For a true salvation experience to happen, hearing the gospel properly is a must, as well as waiting for God’s call, and understanding the 3 R’s: Repentance, Rebirth and Resurrection.

In John 3: 1-8; Jesus is talking to Nicodemus about being born again in order to enter the Kingdom of God. Many times in scripture there is talk about birth, being born again, being children, being infants and babes. When you become truly born again in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you are a babe in Christ. Paul says this in 1 Corinthians 3: 1-3.

From the video above Pastor Pam Sheppard says:

When you’re a babe, you are being modeled after Christ, even though you are an adult.

Babes in Christ need spiritual nurturing, and a born again babe can be deceived. I was sent 3 dreams that sent me to a pastor and a church. Later I find out those dreams were from the enemy. Looking back, it was a dangerous place and Satan had a seat there. Everbody was sinning over and over again. The pastor I was led to was a closet homosexual and a strong practioner in witchcraft. Common sense told me to run, but I thought, they know more about this stuff than me, even though the Holy Spirit taught me different things, they know God more and better than me . But they didn’t. It was a sinful, deceived, and dangerous place. The church was in such evil hands. When I went back, a minister tried to seduce me. But I overcame all that.

Satan wants to deceive a babe in Christ. As soon as you become a babe, his goal is to take you down. Babes can become childlike and can lose their common sense. Before being a babe in Christ, I was a rough and tough atheist. I became childlike in a lot of ways when I was hardly childlike in those 33 years before becoming born again.”

Yet God was with Pastor Pam, protecting her all the time she was in the church.

Pastor Pam Sheppard said during a Bible Study:

The intent with Satan is to cause you to not be fruitful. His goal was to cause me to lose my salvation. The devil wanted to take me to a place where I would say:  I don’t believe in this anymore. The enemy comes with so many attacks. One of the things about maturing is recognizing the devils hands in innocent looking things.

As a babe, the church was used as a way try to take me down. I was a babe that had to grow up with the help of the Holy Ghost. Every human being needs a parent in the natural. We all need a parent in the spiritual too, but we sometimes don’t get it. I was an orphan. I am mature, but still growing.

During that Bible Study, Pastor Pam shared about a woman named Mother Britton:

Mother Britton first joined the church at the age of 65 years old. Nevertheless, she became the most committed, faithful church member. Over the decades, she attended every bible study and from time to time, i was one of her teachers. One day, I visited mother Britton in a nursing home when she was 103 years old. To my amazement. I uncovered that in spite of 40 years of faithful attendance in both Sunday School and bible study, Mother Britton did not UNDERSTAND THE RESURRECTION. It was June 25, 2004, that spending the day with her, I explained the resurrection to her and the Holy Spirit immediately caused her to be born again. Mother Britton, now a babe in Christ, died before she became 104.

In addition, in her video, When Divorce Is a Blessing to a Christian, Pastor Pam warns that babes in Christ must be careful choosing a mate:

When a babe, you can become very foolish and lose your common sense; in all things particularly in choosing a man or woman. Because now you want a Christian man. As long as he says ‘I am born again, I believe on Jesus’, you take his word for it and assume that’s true. Whether you are in ministry or not, the enemy’s strategy is try to hook you up with the wrong person for life.

Babes in Christ need to know when to flee and avoid using the Bible against themselves, the wrong understand of various scriptures the enemy will use to keep them in bondage and captivity. Babes in bondage should realize that when Christ went to the cross to set us free, they are free indeed. A newborn Christian should be enlightened and strengthened not to allow a child, husband, mother, father, to put them in bondage when Christ died and was raised to get them free.

Deliverance From Demons Involves Detox

20 Jan

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

From 90 days to 6 months, perhaps a year, the church addict’s mind must be re-trained. False doctrines and practices that the churchgoer has believed in for decades must be challenged so that the soul can be renewed. As God Himself has compared false worship to prostitution or whoredom , I am not out of line in making a similar comparison. A religious or spiritual addiction can be compared to “good sex” with someone you know does not really love you. Simply put, you get hooked to the thrill and the feeling. Those of us who have never “been there and done that” wonder what the thrill is for a masochist.” a quote from “Come out of Her God’s people)

Masochism from a psychiatric perspective is defined as a condition in which sexual gratification depends on suffering, physical pain and humiliation gained from despair, deprivation, and degradation. The perpetrator can be others or it can be self inflicted. Unfortunately, masochists are known to find pleasure in self denial and emotional pain.

I can relate on a spiritual level because sexual masochism is like self imposed martyrdom… I ignorantly assumed that I was suffering for Christ.” Notwithstanding, like a spiritual masochists, a sensual, carnal thrill was obtainable through believing that I was more righteous than they because I was faithfully doing God’s will. What a shock to find out after more than two decades, that “God never sent me there for ANY reason.” He simply used what the enemy meant for evil for my personal and spiritual good, so that I could be used by Him to help others “help themselves!” Nevertheless, as one who was “addicted,” I never wanted to leave that Whore on my own so God made HER PUT ME OUT!!!!”

The enemy is planning on using your ‘addiction’ to religion and churchianity against you in these endtimes. If you can’t come clean and effectively ‘detox’ , the enemy will keep a foothold in you. If you have ANYTHING in you that wants fame, fortune, popular acceptance, and approval, the enemy has yet another foothold in you. If you love attention, there is another one. If you love suffering, there is another one. if you love drama, there is another one.

Just know that the more you continue in your detox from religion, the more you pursue truth, the more you will realize that your journey will NOT be popular. When you leave your religion behind, you WILL lose friendships…THAT’S A FACT. Some may be more surprising than others. MOST people are not interested in TRUTH. MOST people worship their religion so deeply, that they have no desire or respect for the truth. They wanna hear what makes them feel good. You will find that you cannot share what you are learning with everyone in your life…not your parents, not your siblings, not your friends, and sometimes not even your spouse. Why? Because not everyone is READY for the truth, and quite frankly, not everyone is meant to know the truth. You cannot force it on a person. You cannot MAKE them believe you. You cannot make them see that the religion they are in is not of God, but instead a bunch of religious lies from the enemy. NO. You have got to leave that up to the Holy Ghost to open their eyes and show them. It is NOT your job to convince anyone of the truth.

Yet Pam Sheppard Ministries was enlisted by God to help and guide you on your detox journey with books, videos, articles, correspondence courses, telephone counseling, coaching and deliverance, group fellowship, bible studies, sermons and more!

How to Witness To Religious Churchgoers: Who Are The Birds?

11 Jan

By Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

One of the reasons that makes  witnessing to churchgoers both difficult and unpleasant  is because  they have not yet heard from the Lord in a revelatory way.  Most of the religious  believe that if your argument is not bible-based, then it is not worth listening to.  So, a way to get through to them is using the scriptures in red.  In other words, “What did the Lord Jesus say?”  Use the Lord’s own words to reveal the truth to them.

The Lord  Jesus presented a group of kingdom of heaven parables, most of which He did not explain, but he left some clues. One of the clues as depicted in Matthew 13, is the birds. Therefore, when you’re keeping things very general, your focus is to  rely on what the Lord said, what the Lord shared. Consequently,  ask your religious churchgoer,” what do you think that parable means?”  Listen to what they say. You also  ask questions. First of all  Ask them, “what do the birds represent?”  They won’t know.  So remaining focused and patient, you highlight   the verse which most people know by taking him, her or them  to the parable of the mustard seed  that grew into a large tree.

The trunk of that tree is the Catholic church, and the branches of that tree that come out of that trunk are the plethora of Protestant denominations and non-­denominations that have been formed since the 1500’s. Protestantism  are the branches of that tree. There should be no argument that the tree is  the system of the Institutional Church. So in this context, you can also clarify that the Body of Christ is not the Institutional Church where believers gather together for Sunday morning worship. So it will be relatively easy  to distinguish the difference between the Body of Christ and the Institutional Church. It follows that  you should be able to get agreement that  the body of Christ consists of every born again person who ever lived, who’s living now, and who ever will live. Clearly,  the body of Christ and  the institution of church and religion are not the same.

Once these matters are clarified, then continue to interpret  the mustard seed  parable.  Next consider the birds, nestling in the branches. Now you can make the point  that the non-Catholic denominations have the devil as well as the Catholics.   The trunk is the Catholic church! The people who started the Protestant churches were  themselves  originally Catholics,  believers  who left Catholicism who started a whole new branch of religion. Your major point is this.   The Catholics are the trunk of the tree and  Protestants are the branches. . In the Protestants we have the denominations and the non-­denominations. Simple. Keep it simple.

Now, some believe  that the Catholic church is of God , but it’s the branches that spoiled things. Others believe  that God set up the branches , therefore  it’s the Catholic church that is demonic.  “Oh, forget about the Catholics, they’re all  about witchcraft, with their worshipping the saints and all that, they bigtime got the devil. But the denominations, I mean, these are the ones, this is the true church.” No. Make it plain that one comes out of the other. In fact, there is a movement going forth today to unite the Protestants back with the Catholics.

Then ask the question, ” who are the birds?”  THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!

Once  Jesus used a symbol, it makes sense that the symbol  will have a similar meaning when  He uses it again. In Matthew 13, known as the parable of the Sower,  the Lord is metaphorically discussing the reasons why some hearers of the word do not become  born again.  Jesus shared that the one who hears the word by the wayside do not become born again because the birds come and eat the seed.  Later on in that chapter, the Lord interprets His parable to the apostles, revealing that the birds are wicked beings. They are evil spirits: fallen angels and demons.

So, go back and look at the mustard seed parable concerning the birds in the branches of the institutional church system. Keeping things simple, if the birds were demons in the parable of the Sower , than Jesus is  giving us a clue that the birds up in the branches of the mustard seed parable are evil spirits  also. So if the birds up in the branches are demons. believe me, the Catholic church is also run by fallen angels. In other words, in His office as a Prophet,  the Lord revealed that Fallen angels and demons would one day be  in control of  the Institutional Church.

Perhaps you will be asked if you believe  God ever been involved with Institutional  Church? To answer this question  refer to the  first two or three chapters of the book of Revelation, where a message is sent from the Lord , not to the church, but to the angel of the church. Clearly,  God’s  angels play an important role in the operation of the Institutional Church, and seeing as it was a Roman emperor–Constantine— who started the Institutional Church in 313AD, it doesn’t take too much common sense to realize that the angels who are in control of the Institutional Church today are fallen, they’re not God’s angels.

From the book of Revelation, God’s angels were involved in the churches at  Ephesus, Smyrna, and Philadelphia.  For example,  point out that the Churches at Pergamos and Thyatira   reads a lot like the Catholic Church as Laodicea clearly represents the Protestant churches of  our times. So it would be beneficial if you spent with those seven letters.

Churchgoers, both traditional and charismatic tend to leap from topic to topic.  In this case, you must stay focused by making only a few points. .  The major point you should make is God’s relationship to the institutional church according to the words of Jesus in His parables and in the book of Revelation. The average committed churchgoer is going to defend THEIR local  church and their pastor, with defenses like  “oh, well my church doesn’t do what these charismatic churches do, they don’t ask for tithes, they don’t teach this, they don’t teach that.”

You have to point out that certainly there are righteous, sincere people in some of the churches, both pastors and laity. The question is “Do you want to be in a church that regardless of how committed and faithful the people seem, their organization is run by fallen angels and demons?”  The birds in the branches is the bottom-line to consider!  Until a religious, deceived person comes to the realization that Satan, the god of this world, is in control of their beloved church edifice and system , is it really safe to worship there?  The next question to address is “what about the plagues that the Lord mentions in Rev 18:4 when He warns “Come out of Her My People, less you partake of Her sins and receive of Her plagues.”

In fact, where are God’s people for the most part?  Let the churchgoer answer that question.   The very first place even an atheist will think of is “the Institutional Churches. “

This is all very simple.  The enemy keeps the confusion complicated so that churchgoers will protest with all kinds of explanations, rationalizations  and excuses for continuing to do what the Lord has warned them not to do.

HOW WITCHES AND WARLOCKS MANIPULATE OUR DREAMS

3 Jan

By Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

IMG_1071

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.

E-book Excerpts: The New Idolatry

24 Nov

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

The New Idolatry:  Charismatic Witchcraft, Deliverance and Other. Counterfeits.  (Pg 95-96)

 

What are the plagues?

The worst plague is a curse of spiritual blindness caused by delusion and demonic deception. The worst of the worst is to be duped into believing that you are going to heaven, and to die and find yourself in hell for eternity. For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world yet loses his soul? (Matthew 16:25) The fact that countless people have been indoctrinated into the “I accepted Jesus”   practice—also known as the “make a decision for Christ gospel, “ the worst abomination of them all.

For this form of idolatry distorts the word of God to such an extent, than I am willing to estimate that 85% of churchgoers believe that they are saved, and they are not. Counterfeit spiritual births at the altars of God are the absolute worst plague, the fruit of idolatry. This horrendous sign is pervasive throughout the organized church worldwide—a wide gaping hole for demonic infestation and other horrendous plagues to enter with ease.

So it follows that plagues that can destroy the soul are actually worse than those that debilitate the body only. Sickness and disease are certainly among the plagues, but there are several others. In our times, there are plagues that were not around in other generations: HIV/AIDS, crack, violence like drive by shootings, missing children, the domestic violence cycle and so many more.

Addiction of any kind is a plague primarily due to the dysfunction within the human will. As previously addressed, besides the mind and the emotions, the soul also consists of the will. Whenever the human will is in any kind of bondage, a plague is in operation which follows that the soul is seriously damaged.

Excerpt From “Faces of the Religious Demon.” Pg 89-91

22 Nov

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard

The Narcissistic Personality and Spiritual Strangeness

When bordering on mental illness, a phrase that I have coined called “spiritual strangeness”can manifest in deep depression, the hearing of voices, visual appearances that are invisible to others and manifestations of narcissistic personality disorders of different varieties. (Where the demon of Jezebel is concerned, at the core of the mental illness is a pride system that reinforces false or counterfeit religious beliefs and practices. Psychic phenomena like telekinesis and astral travel emanate from the witchcraft side of the face of Jezebel.

As such, when supernatural manifestations are present, the spirit of Jezebel is generally the lead demon. The Jezebel demon is also at the root of self absorption, where legalism, perfectionism and self righteousness will progressively debilitate
the soul. I suspected that previously mentioned 92 year old Bertha was also personality disordered, particularly as it relates to her perfectionism and the confusion and despondency she experienced when even mildly challenged or suspected of being in error. Although Bertha manifested symptoms of perfectionism, a more classic influence of the face of Jezebel is more clearly evident in a professing Christian whose name I have changed to Pearl.

Claiming to be a doctor of holistic medicine, Pearl contacted me by email with a rather desperate and impertinent cry for a deliverance from an alleged physical infirmity that she believed to be demonic. She reported that she was without any physical strength, continuing to cough, vomit and remained without appetite. By virtue of her New Age profession alone, I was immediately aware that the spirit of witchcraft was definitely unmistakable. Moreover, the fact that Pearl professed faith in Jesus Christ while simultaneously misquoting the Lord frequently, I suspected that I was dealing with not only Jezebel, but perhaps the spirit of the Anti-Christ as well.

For example, Pearl views herself as “Christ-like”, not at all considering that her 30 year practice of homeopathic healing is an occult practice, nor would she consider
that her own beliefs could in any way be demonic. Working with a captive bound to the Jezebel spirit is no easy task. The complexity of the situation is that when helpless and in the middle of a crisis, the captive is usually cooperative and approachable. Due to the urgency of Pearl’s situation and the importunity of her emails and her phone calls, I overruled the steps and stages of my usual procedure. I confronted the demons by telephone in order to bring Pearl some immediate relief.

By reversing the process, I cast out the demon of torment first so that Pearl would be free to work on her other issues and problems. For example, her adult son had threatened to commit suicide if Pearl did not stop interfering in his life. As is the case with this personality type and the Jezebel spirit, Pearl’s life is one of chaos, instability, confusion and broken relationships. Once I exercised the authority of the Name of Jesus over the demon of torment, the spirit of Jezebel and the spirit of the Anti-Christ were clearly exposed, discernible in Pearl’s transparent self love and obvious sense of superiority. Pearl obtained immediate relief.

Interpreting her well being as a sign of a complete deliverance, Pearl backed off from any further counseling, disregarding and opposing all of my suggestions and comments that she was not at all “delivered.” With much debate and contention, Pearl conceded that “the Lord DID use me to set her free,” but she vehemently refused to address those underlying characteristics that permeate her very proud personality. Considering the length of time that she has been narcissistic, it is only logical that she would tenaciously defend her own self concept. Therefore, in Pearl’s mind, she is “as SHE says she is”—loving, giving, honorable, forthright, righteous, selfless, the perfect mother, superior—to name but a few.

It is apparent to me that Pearl is one of the unsaved professing to be saved. Notwithstanding, in Pearl’s mind, she is “Christ-like” even though she defied several of His words and His ways as evidenced in her emails. Once relieved of torment, the contradictions between Pearl’s actual character and her idealized image of herself became so obvious that it was amazing that she could not perceive it with her own self proclaimed intelligence.

On the contrary, Pearl is consistent in her ability to ignore the unconcealed. In fact, Pearl would only accept the reality of demons in her life as being sent to her through the jealous witchcraft practices of others, never once considering that she could be in any way responsible for her own torment. This inherent blind spot coupled with her adamant resistance to authority is the most serious obstacle to a complete deliverance. Furthermore, within her emails are numerous statements that would cause a knowledgeable Christian to seriously question her salvation.

Unwilling to be broken in spirit, the religious demon’s motive is self evident. Pearl’s solution is to do away with all demonic doorways of a personal nature by declaring herself “above it all.”Pride has hindered Pearl from taking a realistic assessment of those un-submitted areas of her soul. As Paul wrote, “God resists the proud but give grace to the humble.” (James 4:7)

Exposing Fallen Angels

23 Aug
By Pastor Pam Sheppard

RL002096

 

It is not easy to teach another how to try the spirits to see if they be of God. Not easy by a long shot. Practically everything I know was acquired by personal experience. Now some may think that personal experience is not the best way to learn spiritual matters and so I am expecting that the bible thumpers will say that you try the spirits by “the word.” You need to know that the enemy knows the word better than we do. The enemy even knows how much YOU know about the bible. So he can line up the experience or communication with scriptures, the way YOU interpret them. He also knows US. That is why many sincere believers are being destroyed for a lack of knowledge of how the enemy works. Beside knowing how the enemy works, we also need to have an abundance of self-knowledge and an awareness of How the Holy Spirit works with us.

That is why it is difficult to lay out a prescribed course of study relative to how to try the spirits. With that said, there are some general principles that comprise bits and pieces of information that may be helpful to you. The bible speaks against doubt where it comes to faith and calls it wavering. However where it comes to testing or trying something supernatural, doubt is your best friend.

Consider this personal example. In 1985, I received a dream where a muscular, huge Mr. Clean looking man said “I am an angel sent from God to show you your ministry.” I believed every word he said. Doubt never crossed my mind. Yet HE WAS AN ANGEL OF SATAN and not an angel sent from God. One of the reasons I did not doubt was because the message line up with things that were going on in my life and the desires of my heart in those days. Simply put, “there was loads of confirmation” that the message actually was from the Lord. I held on to this message for the next 2 decades, until “I doubted it.” The next thing I noticed was “detail.” This entity had loads of details about what my ministry would be, how it would operate, who would be involved, how much money it would take to operate annually, even drew a blueprint of the operating facility. Details, details, details!!!! I have since learned that the Lord does not operate this way. He simply guides your steps and the next thing you know, you are ministering in ways that you never expected.

Another important principle to consider is motive: The enemy’s motive, God’s motive and YOUR motive. In fact, YOUR motive could influence you to desire to accept the message as being sent from God. Revisiting the message from the bald-headed angel, I was single at the time, expecting and waiting on Mr. Right, trying not to settle for Mr. Right Now. SO I HAD A MOTIVE CAUSE I WAS GETTING TIRED OF WAITING. I also held the false belief that I would always be hindered in ministry unless I had a husband in a co- ministry. In the message, I was told that Mr. Right would be the director of operations in what was described as a huge residential facility for ex-offenders and addicts in recovery. Looking back, I can clearly see the enemy’s motive. His intent was to destroy me by sending Mr. Wrong and using the details in this “angelic message” to cause me to make the wrong choices. It worked. God stepped in and spoke to me saying “the man you married was sent by the devil to destroy you. “

What did I say? “THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!”

This foolish statement is what we ALL say when we have not faced the desires and motives of our heart. In such cases, re remain the enemy’s primary target for more deception and attack. Finally, there is that fruit of the spirit called PATIENCE. Many times, the supernatural experience does not contradict the bible but you can’t find anything in the bible to justify the experience. SO YOU HAVE TO WAIT!!!! perhaps years, even decades. Since I work with people on a daily basis to not only know God and the bible, but also themselves and the enemy of their souls, these words from “War on the Saints by Jessie Penn-Lewis rings true: Apart from such knowledge, when thinking he is “fighting for truth,” it is possible for a believer to fight for, defend, and protect evil spirits, and their works, believing he is thereby “defending” God, and His works; for if he thinks a thing Divine, he will protect and stand for it. It is possible for a man through ignorance to stand against God and to attack the very truth of God, and also defend the devil, and oppose God, unless he has knowledge.

You may need some help on this. Call Pam at 1-888-818- 1117.

The Fall From Grace of Mega Preachers:The People vs Joel Osteen

9 Sep

unnamed

Right on the heels of the Charlottesville riots, Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Rockport, Texas bringing with it death and the loss of property. One of the major headlines concerning this natural disaster had to do with Joel Osteen,  a prominent, mega-preacher in Texas who sent a tweet stating that he and his wife will pray for the those affected. The backlash started almost immediately on alot of social media platforms. Many  tweets, memes, videos were posted where people were berating Joel and demanding more than “prayers” from him.

Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church are experiencing a PR nightmare, we have seen corporations that have bounced back from corporate gaffes and others destroyed from it. We are yet to see how this incident will affect Joel in the long-term. The Institutional Church herein referred to as the (I.C.) is part of the world system so it uses the tactics of the world to get by, the Spirit of God is not in any of their dealings.
There are those who have shown unwavering support for Joel  but what caught my interest is that there is a substantial amount of people as seen on social media who feel one thing for mega-preachers – ANGER. Gone are the days when people would shy away from speaking against a “man of God”.After Joel’s tweet, the comments came fast & furious making it seem like people were waiting for an incident to happen so they can let loose and tell Joel what they really feel.
There are people who are mad, fuming not just at Joel but at the I.C. and at mega-preachers. In some way it felt like there was nothing Joel could do to appease the critics, the arguments started with why didn’t he open the church early to he opened the church because of the social media pressure. Any interview Joel gave was dissected to show how his efforts weren’t genuine, even his body language was being analysed to strengthen the claims that he didn’t want to be there helping people. Every thing he did was an offense.
Clearly, there are people who still love & support mega preachers but there is also another group that have become weary of mega-preachers and refuse to see any good in them. This group sees mega-preachers as scammers, Period! even acts of kindness are looked at suspiciously as many wait for the money grab to revealed sooner or later.
I have belonged to both groups of people at different times in my life. I have blindly loved and supported mega-preachers and even defended them to critics, then as the years went by I became a critic as I noticed their teachings were pseudo-deep, they embraced the world and repeatedly taught the prosperity gospel. I left the church and would watch a lot of videos exposing ministries and false preachers we have today, which are plenty. The Irony is, in both states I thought I was walking in truth but the reality was I was still deceived. I had some partial truth in that I could see some of these leaders were false teachers but I still engaged in I.C. practices & believed I was born again because I had asked Jesus into my heart, I believed in a false gospel.
.
The major spiritual problem today is not the mega preacher phenomenon or false teachers – that is just a symptom of a bigger issue . If we spent time analyzing who is a false prophet and who isn’t we would be here for days as the list is endless. Time is really of the essence so what you need to see is that the entire I.C. is condemned and the Spirit of God is not there. For those who have left the I.C., if they still engaged in religious practices or hold on to church teachings, they could still be deceived.
Pastor Pam Sheppard addresses the Spiritual problem in our time in The Church of The End Time Zombies, an excerpt reads:-
Statistics show that floods of people are leaving the I.C. daily. The question is, where are they going? It could be that many of these folk are just joining up with yet another branch of the I.C. or doing the I.C. thing at home. Opening a church in your home by teaching the same false doctrines and practices, causes your home to be just as dangerous.”
The I.C. has been taken over by fallen angels and demons, nothing good can come out of it. The Lord Jesus already prophesied the future of the I.C. in the parable of the mustard seed.
As people who are preparing for the return of the Lord Jesus, we need to understand that holding on to partial truths is just as dangerous as believing a lie. It is good to know who is a false teacher, so you can avoid their traps, but spending time studying and exposing one preacher to the next is a tedious task as there are many.
The I.C isn’t under attack by being infiltrated by false teachers, it’s actually the I.C. that creates an environment for these preachers to grow and thrive. A word from Pastor Pam concerning mega-pastors in her own personal experience.
A word of caution. The religious demon assigned to me tried to set me up to become  a false prophet.  In several dreams, he showed me standing before huge audiences, walking up and down across a platform with my bible in my hand, preaching and teaching.  He even showed me pastoring a church of about 10,000 people.  Because I sought after the power to slay in the spirit, after 10 years of seeking, I got it. I could wave my hand, and certain ones would fall out, unconscious.  However, I began to question this power because I noticed that the ones in my congregation who fell out the most, were also those who could not STAND for the Lord, relapsing or backsliding constantly.  So I said to myself, “Pam, there is something wrong with this so-called gift. This cannot be from the Holy Ghost!”  Once I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to “show me the darkness,” I got quite the wakeup call that revealed that  the mega preacher phenomena of today is NOT of the Lord.  It is a combination of human charisma, “anointed” by the enemy’s power.”
Understand the times that we live in so you wont be deceived with the spiritual blindness that’s all over, if you don’t know where to start read “The Church of the End Time Zombies”, you can get a copy at:-

Church-hopping Won’t Help When the State Controls the Church!

8 Sep

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

We know from scriptures that foretold what is now history of the need for separation of church and state.  the state is the political world.  We also know that Satan is the god of all world systems. In fact, the greatest temptation against the Lord was Satan’s offer of dominion over the world to Jesus as a bonus if only the Lord would  worship him.  So separation of church and state is an absolute mandate.  Consequently,  it should not surprise us that the coming together of church and state is a top priority for the devil.

Although we are not privy to exactly when the Lord Jesus Christ will return to earth, scripture DOES provide a rather complete picture of the state of both religious and political affairs of the season, with many metaphorical and physical signs and conditions. Although we may disagree with the order of endtime signs, the symbolic understanding of both Jezebel and the Harlot of the book of Revelation universally represent the institutional church. The IC is “that woman Jezebel who calls herself a prophetess.  She teaches and seduces the servants of God—the elect—to commit fornication with strange  gods.” (Rev 2:20)

SO Jezebel is the apostate church. So is the harlot.

When we read that the harlot, or whore who rides on the back of the Beast, the interpretation is that the IC will seek to gain power offered by the political system.  The beast is the Antichrist. For decades in our times, church leaders have sought and gained favor with local politicians by allowing candidates into their pulpits to promote themselves. In fact, pastors have successfully balanced on a legal tightrope, trying not to openly break the law by publicly endorsing any “favorites.”

The 1954 Johnson amendment legislates that any tax-exempt group can lose its exemption if it is found to have endorsed or actively opposed a candidate for political office. Actually, for decades now, the IC’s receipt of tax exempt status is in itself the blurring of the lines of separation between church and state.  Yet just a bit less than 4 months into his presidency, Trump signed an executive order that allows church leaders to openly endorse any politician of their choice, from the pulpit, now fully unhindered from riding the back of the beast.

This is just the beginning.

Expectancy, watchfulness and preparedness must be our way of life in this the 11 th hour.  If you have been paying attention to the news, there is evidence that the newly elected administration in the U.S quietly has enhanced the already blurred lines of religious and political separation,  particularly among white charismatic Christians and those who are bigots and racists.  What these bible thumpers have overlooked by their prideful, ambitious patronage is the biblical warning that in the tribulation, the governments of this world shall turn on the institution called “church” and suddenly destroy Her.

Nevertheless, the Lord comforted us 2000 years ago, by saying “Fear not!”

The time will come, when the Beast is in full power, that the institutional church will be taken over by the state and ultimately destroyed.

Where will YOU be at that time?

Church-hopping?

It won’t help.  You don’t want to have your name and address on any church roles in Endtimes.
