Are You A False Prophet?

24 Jul

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

In ministry since 1981, I know a thing or two about false prophets. Besides the TV mega preachers that I watched for years, I also came to know at least 200 ministers while I was pastoring in a well-known denomination. So from my observations, I have designated 3 different types of false prophets. The deceived, the detoured and the diabolical.

There are those false prophets who are really saved but they followed the wrong leaders, and “sucked into themselves” mixed and false doctrines and practices. In short, they heeded and harkened unto the voice of seducing spirits and doctrines of the devil. However, they have not yet departed from the faith. These I call, “the Deceived.” Some of them will be set free. Because of pride, sad to say, others won’t be. Some false prophets would prefer to be caught up in a scandal than to admit that they taught error and thereby “led the people in the wrong direction, away from God, and not toward Him.” They are too spiritually proud to admit that they did not rightly divide the word of God.

Then there is the false prophet who was once used of God mightily, but he or she got deceived by the enemy and fell into disrepute. These I call “the Detoured.” This man or woman becomes a pretender—one who is very dangerous to those who are babes in Christ or who remain carnal Christians. Their followers “stand by their man” even when they should jump ship. The bible has a classic example of how the detoured “Old Prophet” deceived the man of God, resulting in the latter’s death. (I Kings 13)

Then of course, there is the out-and-out pretender who knows that he or she is serving the spirit of the Anti-Christ and everything they do is a masquerade. These I call “the Diabolical.” They are imposters, planted in among Christians to willfully bring confusion that will lead to destruction.

Every false prophet type— whether the Deceived, the Detoured, and the Diabolical— is equally dangerous. Why? Because they can leave a huge trail of victims.  I am humbled and thankful that although I was on the road to becoming a false prophet, the Holy Ghost jerked my chain, then cut it and broke it.  When  I was deceived by charismatic teachings,” God blessed me by closing doors and blocking me from spreading error. Even though I once had the heart, the skill and the desire of a mega preacher, God purposefully would not allow me to become a popular celebrity.. When a door opened, the Holy Ghost closed it and blocked my way through it. Moreover, among those that I have pastored, even though I personally believed some mixed doctrines, I didn’t teach them to those who allowed me to lead them. So praise God, after 36 years as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have no victims.

For example, I spoke in tongues, but I didn’t teach my followers to do so. I tithed, but I did not preach a “sow a seed,” prosperity gospel. In fact, I was completely self-sustaining. I gave back my church salary in the form of tithes and offerings to the churches that I pastored. When I practiced healing and the laying on of hands, I never told anyone to stop taking their medicine and “walk by faith.” I primarily preached the cross, sin, repentance, rebirth and the resurrection. But make NO MISTAKE. The false prophets of all 3 varieties:— the deceived, the detoured and the diabolical— are equally dangerous! Your prayers for them to repent may NOT prevail. And why not?

In order to repent, the false prophet has to do more than apologize and ask for forgiveness from those he has abused and deceived. If he has been made rich off of the backs of poor people by preaching the prosperity gospel, then God will require him or her to “give back” all of that money to the poor. Not too many false prophets are willing to give up those jet planes, million dollar homes and those Bentleys. Even the false prophets who are NOT mega, many of them have practiced the lie for so long, that it is practically impossible to receive the truth and act on it. Far too many have made “ministry” their career and not their calling.

Ask the Apostle Paul. He maintained as a tent maker. He would not allow any of the churches that he set up to totally provide his livelihood. That is why he could write, “whether abased or exalted, I can do ALL things 4 through Christ who strengthens me.” In other words, JUST SO YOU KNOW, I am not dependent upon YOU to live and to serve my God. When a false prophet’s livelihood is intricately tied to church dollars and resources, he or she is captive to a self-made trap that cannot be escaped from without God’s help. Actually, some false prophets have to be stripped naked to find God again, if they ever knew Him. So if you really think a particular false prophet is deceived, perhaps detoured but not diabolical, then your prayer should be “Lord, strip him.”

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 wake-up 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. My testimony is in “Come Out of Her God’s People.”

So if you are on that road, you need to get off, and get off with a quickness! If you have been burned by a false prophet, there is help.  Call 1-888-818-1117

Learning From Your Mistakes

20 Jul
By Pastor Pam Sheppard 

 

Mistakes and Deliverance

Image result for learning from your mistakes

 It has been my experience that the doorway UNKNOWINGLY left wide open to demonic torment is a captive’s fear of ever making a mistake. Demons take great pleasure in tormenting people who they can control with criticism, shame and accusation. As a deliverance counselor, I realize that for each captive, there is a different root cause. For the most part, a fear of making a mistake comes from how you were raised. Those who have been under the authority of extremely judgmental, critical parenting are inclined to either become passive or aggressive in their response to this fear.

The passive ones try to “always be correct and proper” because they are afraid of suffering the consequences that judgmental parenting brings. On my web caseload over the last 14 years, those who are constantly hearing critical, accusing voices in their minds have been raised by critical, judgmental parents. Perfectionism in passive people also leads them to be ardent people pleasers–a breeding ground for depression.

The aggressive folks tend to become the rebels of the world who often seem to make mistakes on purpose and by design because they simply enjoy annoying people. In other words, “if you made me the black sheep of the family, I’m going to play that role with style and gusto! If you told me when I was 10 years old that I am going to be no good, just like my father, well, I am going to be “my father” to the 25th power. So watch me, Mom, as I go through the revolving prison door of recidivism. Watch me and suffer Mom, because you have tried to frame me with a fear of being like a Dad that I didn’t even know, because of you and YOUR failures!

Here is another pattern. January 2 of every year  could be renamed “Get Rid of the Fat Day. There are unseen reasons why some of us got fat. Here is the scenario for the rebel:  ” If you have called me “fat” all of my life when I was not fat but voluptuous and my sensuality disturbed you, Mom—-I am REALLY going to become fat just to show you what FAT REALLY IS AND that I don’t care what you think of my body type!!!!”

Scenarios like these are often played out on a sub-conscious level. Anytime you don’t know who you are and why you are behaving the way that you do, you are a prime target for demonic interference. As a deliverance counselor, this is the reason  why I am less concerned about whether or not you ever experimented with the occult or drugs than I am about how you deal with “making mistakes.” It does not take a great deal of education to become a great learner. Learning involves listening and mimicking. Even if we can’t read or write, life itself is going to teach us something!!!” If you have never made a mistake then you have not learned very much.

For the Christian in particular, God designs the lessons of life disguised in the form of obstacles, mistakes and difficulties through a maze of trials, tribulations, troubles and tests. Why? Because the Christian walk in the spirit by faith in God alone is what earns us our eternal crowns. Without any ashes, there is no beauty. Without failure, there is no glory. Without falling, we really don’t know how to stand. We are sinners who must totally rely on the Holy Spirit’s leading in order to please a perfect God. He is pleased when we can resist the pride of our sinful nature and embrace our ashes.

I was born 73 years ago. I was born again 40 years ago. All I have to give to God is a life of mistakes and failures. These are my infirmities, and like Paul, I actually glory in them. I know that I glory in them because when I speak or write about my mistakes, I have no inner pulling of sorrow, shame or regret in my heart. I know that I glory in them because I give practically no thought or expression to the things that man would consider successful accomplishments. I glory in my mistakes because I have come to know that the power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is all over me when I can acknowledge my own weaknesses.

There is a difference between making a mistake and being a mistake. If I am in Christ, then I am not a mistake. On the contrary, if I rely on “self,” then I am functioning as a mistake. What the bible confirms is that God did not believe that I was a mistake or I would not be here. God does not believe that YOU are a mistake or YOU would not be here either. When we begin to see even an iota of how big and all-consuming God is, then we will stop worrying about our mistakes and the demons that are assigned to us will be bound and gagged.

Twenty eight years ago, I committed a serious sin that brought about its consequences and its ramifications. On last Friday, the religious demon assigned to me sent me a dream that showed me committing the exact same sin and “loving it.” Demons rarely accuse me of sin because they know that I don’t receive or respond to their guilt trips. However, THIS time, they “got me good” because the dream disturbed at least half of my day. The dream was a mockery. What I found offensive is that I was shown that I still have the desire to do the exact same thing, a sin that would be extremely hurtful to God as well as to other people whom I would certainly hurt.

Do I have the desire to commit the sin again? Absolutely not. Would I do so if tempted? Absolutely not. However, here is the truth of it. The flesh DOES NOT CHANGE! In my flesh, I am STILL capable of committing the exact same sin TODAY!!! Yet, though I am capable, I WILL not do it. Why not? Because I don’t walk in the flesh. I walk in the spirit. And because of Jesus Christ, the desires of my heart and my spirit HAVE CHANGED. There is NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.

You see, Brethren, Christians who are afraid of making mistakes focus on self-righteousness and not on the righteousness of God in Christ. They are not looking to the cross. They are looking to self. They are trying to please God just as they tried to please their earthly parents. Yet our understanding and practice of perfection is totally different from God’s as it pertains to His people. Take Job, as our classic biblical example. He was as perfect as man can get, pleasing to God, yet prior to Calvary.

That was Job’s problem. He was toooo perfect. He had no mistakes to draw from. Without the mistakes, Job really did not know God very well. Once God allowed the devil to attack Job, Job’s hidden mistakes were revealed. He was focused on “self-righteousness. The true nature of God was also revealed. Once confronted by his religious friends, Job became defensive. Defensiveness is an outgrowth of pride. If you are defensive, then even the very thought of making a mistake becomes a bondage to you. On the real, face it. Mistakes are part of our lives and we will keep making mistakes till our last breath. In my book, “Faces of the Religious Demon” are scores of case summaries of professing Christians who religious demons tormented because their captives were afraid of making mistakes.  For one reason or another, deliverance counseling uncovered   a complicated pride system at the root.

If I am speaking to YOU, then deliverance counseling or mentoring will help you get the victory in 2017. So call and book a telephone session. 1-888-818-1117

Becoming Deception Proof: Doubt and Question!

26 Jun

Just because a person is born again does not make them “deception proof.”

Pam Sheppard, Author and Pastor

The Lord would not have warned His disciples to “take heed and be not deceived” if there was no danger that they could be deceived. It does not matter how many things you are or were deceived about. For 25 years, I was deceived about a few things in comparison to what other churchgoers were deceived about. Yet the Holy Spirit did not release me from the deception until He was ready to. He simply stepped in when He chose the time to be right and started unravelling things.  Why?  Because I began to both doubt and question religious teachings and practices.

What I continue to  remain cautious about is this. Just because I am undeceived NOW, does not mean that it is impossible for me to be deceived again. For me to think otherwise would be both pride and arrogance and I do not want God to resist me.

So what is deception?

Deception has to do with thoughts in the mind. Simply put, we believe a lie or a half truth. The worst of it is the assumptions. or if you start off with even one little wrong assumption, everything else falls like dominos.
Recently , I watched how a person can start out with truth and how the enemy can use the very truth they have received and lead them into a lie. What happens is that the enemy takes advantage of our misconception of truth. He also uses the weaknesses of our personalities to lead us into believing what suits us best.

This realization has humbled  me quite a bit. I believe that once we are given truth, we have to seek God in prayer to help us not to misunderstand truth, for our conception of truth may cause us to be deceived.

So my question is “how do we make ourselves fool-proofed to deception?”

I think we can all answer this from experience. just examined how we got deceived, what was it about us that caused us to be open to the deception, and how did we come out of it?

I was deceived because of my lack of knowledge of how the enemy works and how God works. I also had no knowledge of church history. My assumptions were off. For, example, I thought everything supernatural was from God. I also looked to mega preachers for answers, ignorant of the fact that those who I sought for answers were deceived themselves.

I did not become undeceived until I began to doubt and question religious beliefs and practices. People think that doubting is like wavering.  Wavering is being tossed to and fro, filled with confusion. Doubting on the other hand is what is necessary to reach the truth. In other words,   it’s our capacity to doubt and question that makes us free.

When I was in the institutional church, I did not doubt.  I was very sure of key  things that were wrong.  For example, I never doubted slain in the spirit.   Without doubt, then you will make assumptions. So I assumed that slain in the spirit was a good thing and I lusted after it.  Once I got it, then doubt set in.

Doubt caused me to ask questions. For example, I asked myself while a pastor, ‘Why is it that the people who are constantly slain in the spirit around me cannot stand solid in Christ?” was my first bit of doubting.  In short, I ASKED MYSELF AN IMPORTANT QUESTION. My doubt began because they were constantly falling in their spiritual walk.  So this situation caused me to begin to doubt the slain in the spirit practice.  Also “War on the Saints” Caused me to start doubting.  IT WAS A GOOD THING.

Once I began to doubt and question, the Holy Spirit began to pour rivers of  revelation upon me about many things.  As He undeceived me, I began to write..

The result is 7 published books.

Don’t Lose Your Crown With Fast Food Religion and Quick Fix Deliverances

22 May

armorThe bible warns that the conditions at the end of the age will “wax worse and worse” men deceiving and being deceived.(2 Timothy 3:13) and many children of God will be deceived, possibly destroyed, because of a lack of discernment, becoming unconscious vessels for the enemy to use in the DAY of his power. (Matthew 24:10). Therefore, it is mandated that every true believer must be prepared to stand alone in order to emerge as an overcomer. To be prepared means that you have been trained in peace time but most often, while you are actually in the battle.

Unfortunately, we are not prepared for what is happening among this generation’s religious people.  Whether in church or absent from Her, Satan is pulling out all  his last stops including spirit rape, voices, intrusive blasphemous thoughts and horrifying visions to let religious folk know, that he is in control of them.  And he is.

How did the devil obtain this kind of power when the bible reports that the Lord Jesus Christ has defeated him? Simply put, the  spiritually undernourished have been eating fast spiritual foods leading to the expectation that quick religious  fixes and fantasies will  pull them  through to victory. What is neither understood or considered is that we who will overcome must try the spirits NOW. We must not believe every spirit.  The spirit that is not of God is Anti-Christ.  So if you are hearing blasphemous thoughts about the Lord Jesus, or if entities or spirits are having sex with you to satisfy their need for spiritual worship, if you are having evil visions that cause shame and guilt , you have been taken over by Satan as  the Accuser of the brethren and the  spirit of the Anti-Christ.

In order to overcome the spirit of the Antichrist who is now quite active in our present world, everything and everyone must be tested, including yourself.  How is this test implemented? First of all, , check to see if you have been  consistently eating junk food. Also, examine where you stand relative to the gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth: sin, the cross, the death, burial, resurrection and the return  of the Lord.   Do you understand repentance? Did you experience godly sorrow as led by the Holy Spirit and not by the needs of your own flesh for grief, self-accusation, and self-induced shame?   Did the Holy Spirit call you to the cross or did you just ask Jesus to come into your heart because you were afraid of going to hell? Are you expecting a pre-tribulation rapture and therefore you are not preparing for His coming? Do you believe you are born again yet you still have not been able to control sinful behavior? Do you believe that church attendance and loyalty will save you?

The answers to these questions will reveal whether or not you have been eating fast foods, and relying on quick fixes, fantasizing that you are blessed when in fact, you may be cursed.

Let us face it!.  WE ARE IN A WAR.  A SPIRITUAL WAR! if you are in agreement with theantichrist spirit of the world and the spirit of the Antichrist, you are a weak vessel, not a soldier, one  who is actually food for Satan.  He smells your blood in the water and you are the prey of the mighty. He will tempt you with illusions in the spirit that are not common to man and he does not play fair.  However, those of us called to Calvary have been given weapons for warfare that we are to use and become proficient in their use by experience, developing our faith by trial and sometimes by error.

A part of that warfare is to recognize the spies and overcome them BEFORE the Lord returns. We are in a conflict with the Antichrist and his army NOW.  Consider perhaps the very near future as outlined in Revelation 17. In this chapter, Christ is carrying out terrible things on His enemies who “war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, for He is the Lord of lords and the King of kings, and they also shall overcome who are with Him, called and chosen, and faithful.”

I want to be in this number.  You should want it also.

crown1

We shall judge and rule with Christ, at least those of us who overcome.  Those who have died in Christ already have escaped the  kind of uncommon supernatural trials and  tests Satan will throw our way in these Laodicean, deceitfully lukewarm times of fast food religion and quick fix deliverances.  I suspect that the dead in Christ have their crowns already.  However, what if we are alive when He comes?   It seems that it is OUR crowns that are up for grabs. Will you allow YOUR crown  to  be stolen because you enjoyed too much fast food in the spirit  and you depended solely on quick fixes, incapable of standing against the wiles of the devil.

RESCUE Ministry will train you to be prepared for the Satanic onslaught that is coming your way.  We also work to set you free once you have slipped  into sinking sand. God wants to work in you. RESCUE is a safe haven where He can answer your prayer and prepare you for the future, with solid meat.  Has the enemy interfered in your life?  God is greater than the devil. At RESCUE, we will train you to get a crown and keep it. We will help you to past all tests with flying colors, as you learn to stand in strong faith.

If you would like to give RESCUE a 30 day trial to see if this ministry is for you, call 888-818-1117 or complete the contact form below:

WHAT ARE THE ASCENDED MASTERS AFTER Part 1

14 May

Pastor Pam wrote:

It was not until the year 2006 that I had even heard the term ascended masters. I had been watching  a video clip of Cindy Trimm.  I did not know very much about her ministry, only that she was a friend of Juanita Bynum.  So to learn what she was all about, I visited her website.  The first thing I discovered was that she had a teacher’s ministry which strongly emphasized angels.  My eyebrow raised. 

Then I opened up another video clip and I was stunned, to say the least, as I watched hundreds of congregants simultaneously fall on top of each other, slain in the spirit like waves across the entire building.  I paid  attention to Trimm’s words at the moment that hundreds fell.  She proclaimed, “I thank you Father, that the spirit of the Ashtar has fallen upon the people.”

Troubled by the name “Ashtar,” I searched the scriptures and found the name of an old testament idol called “Ashteroth.”  Once led to pursue additional research, I googled “Ashtar.”  Shocked that a Christian evangelist would call on Ashtar in a prayer “to Father,” moments before almost the entire congregation was on the floor in a stupor, a google search opened the door to a plethora of occult websites dedicated to uplifting the teachings of cosmic beings that are referred to as “ascended” masters.

The dots are connected between the occult and the organized church.

I found that there are at least 50 ascended masters, perhaps even more.  Fifteen of them are ranked as primary players—fallen angels who first claimed to be aliens, sent to earth to prepare for the advent of a one world religon and to pave the way for the rule of the Anti-Christ.  Within my book, “the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” I present a detailed study of the top 5: Ashtar, Jesus Sananda Immanuel, Mother Mary, St. Germain and Maitreya.

As the leader, Maitreya holds the title of “Master of Masters.”

Through my research, I found that ET’s, aka aliens is who Ashtar first said that he was.  Ashtar made his first appearance to a human being of our generation in the early 50’s —a military man,  Col George Van Tassel, to warn this country about the misuse of atomic energy.  Eventually, Ashtar began to call himself “an ascended master.”

In “the Fake Jesus,” to figure out what these fallen angels are after, I searched for what they have been telling their occult followers.  Ashtar promises them that he and his command are prepared to evacuate and relocate our entire earth’s population to various “Mother Ships” in the heavens.  I happen to wonder where was Ashtar when all but 8 of the world’s inhabitants went down in the flood.

In the last few years, Ashtar has received worldwide support from international celebrity and talk show hostess Oprah Winfrey as she supports and even teaches from the occult book called “A New Earth.”The sheer magnitude surrounding the fact that Oprah is a teacher and a disciple of the author of this book speaks volumes.

It seems that the enemy is planning a fake rapture.

IS POSITIVE THINKING BIBLICAL?

12 May

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7

What interpretation do you have about this verse? I was taught that this verse spoke on how I can shape my reality by what I think, that our thoughts have the power to alter our lives, and that we can make ourselves what we want to be.

But does this verse really teach about the power of our thoughts?

While detoxing from religion, one of the main things I learned  is that It’s important at all times to consider the context of a bible verse. Some factors to look into when reading the bible is  to consider who is the target audience and whether or not  the writer was speaking (referring) to someone specific . To assume that every verse written is personally directed to you is a dangerous way of reading the bible.

It’s also good to have an idea of the historical & cultural context of a particular verse. The question to ask is whether or not the passage of scripture is relevant to present day living.

Let’s look at the verse in relation to the rest of the chapter.

Proverbs 23:1-8

1. When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
2 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.
3 Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
6 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
8 The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

The writer was advising someone that even though this person says “Eat & drink”, be careful not to assume that he is a generous man.  For the words coming out of his mouth may not match what’s in his heart.  why?  because “his heart is not with thee”.

Do not be fooled by the words and generous acts of someone, If  the generosity doesn’t come from the heart, then he is not a generous person. He acts a certain way because he has evil motives.

So within the context of scripture, it becomes clear that the verse has nothing to do with positive thinking or the power of the mind.  Rather, it is addressing hypocrisy. Simply put, people can outwardly act a certain way but their true character is what is in their heart.

So where did this verse get linked to power of thought?

In 1903 a book titled “As a man thinketh” was published by the author James Allen.
download (2)
James Allen was a British philosophical writer and considered a pioneer of the self-help movement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. His best known work is the book “As a Man Thinketh” which is likely based on the Biblical verse Proverbs 23:7 which states: “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Some quotes from his book

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”

“As a being of Power, Intelligence, and Love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills.”

“If he will link cause and effect by patient practice and investigation….. As a means of obtaining that knowledge of himself. “He that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”; for only by patience, practice, and ceaseless importunity can a man enter the Door of the Temple of Knowledge.”

The book primarily teaches that man is self-sufficient to transform his situations, its starts in the mind and everything else follows.

One of the deceptions that is rampant is believing everything that comes from the devil must have a negative connotation to it. If a teaching is meant to help you become better, the assumption is that there’s no way it came from the devil, based upon a belief  that the devil doesn’t want you to be the best you can be! This is not true! The devil is the author of many positive teachings that might even produce some beneficial  effects in your life. Nevertheless, that’s a part of the trap,—to make you believe you are embracing something great when you are actually been set up to be demonized.

The church has joined in teaching the power of positive thinking, notably Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes to name a few; many ministers cherry pick verses to back this false doctrine by teaching that  if people remain positive and grateful,  their situations will change for the better.

It’s alarming that the church has endorsed a teaching that originates from ripping Proverbs 23:7 completely out of context.

By their fruits, you shall know them

What fruits come from this teaching?

It denies people the opportunity to listen to the gospel – instead of people listening to the true gospel of Jesus Christ; they go to church to receive a pep talk telling them that even though they are facing challenges, they can turn it around. How will people know the gospel when they are not even hearing it to begin with? And when they do hear the gospel, it’s a different version that asks them to accept Jesus into their heart.

People are being taught techniques on how to change their thinking from negative to positive with the help of certain activities such as meditation – a practice that facilitates entrance into an altered state of consciousness (ASC). An altered state causes peoples’ chakras to be open & for demons to enter. Pastor Pam has several blogs & videos teaching on how Christians have been deceived into opening their chakras and getting demonized, you can read more on this at:-

Christians Who Open the 7 Chakras Are Demonized!

Also the topic is covered extensively in the book “The Church of the Endtime Zombies”. The link for the paperback & e-book are listed below.

bookcover_zombies

This teaching is also very focused on self & that the power to change is inside of you. Romans 3:23 states that all have fallen short, so we don’t have the power to make ourselves clean from sin, we cannot cause out spirits to be born again by positive thinking. There are some changes people can make in their lives for the better but being born again is something that only the Holy Spirit can do.

This belief in the unregenerated self has given rise to people referring to themselves as “I AM” with views that since humans are made in the image of God,  that we are little gods, another false teaching.

Reading a bible verse in its proper context is crucial in the times we live in, it’s easy to be carried away by false doctrine if you don’t question or challenge what you are taught. “As a man thinketh so is he” addresses hypocrisy not the power of our thoughts.

Why Reincarnation?

30 Apr

 

Pastor Pam Sheppard wrote:

reincarnation

Reincarnation was once a major component of my belief system when I was a New Age atheist. However once I became born again 40 years ago, it was the easiest false teaching to eliminate. Why? Because it nullifies the Lord’s purpose for His sacrifice for sin in His death on the cross. For why become sin for each human being if we all have additional lives available to correct past life karma. For as the bible says, it is appointed to each man ONCE to die, and then the judgment.

I watched the 1977 movie called Audrey Rose, a movie that strongly supports reincarnation. I missed this one as I was born again that very year. So watching this movie in 2013 was quite revealing. For it is obvious that Satan is in control of Hollywood to send his own subliminal messages.

The setting for the movie is New York City in the 70’s. Janice and Bill Templeton are Park Avenue types, living in a splendid apartment bigger than most houses, with thousands of dollars of art work on the ceilings. They have an 11-year-old daughter named Ivy who is a happy, gregarious child until she starts to have these trance like fits, where it looks like she is trying to escape from a fire.

In the meantime, Elliot Hoover makes contact with the Templeton’s about Ivy, telling them of how his four-year old daughter died in a car crash, where she was seen banging on the car windows screaming, surrounded by flames, shortly before the car her mother was driving, exploded, killing them both. Interestingly enough, this incident occurred just a few hours on the same day that Ivy was born. After the death of Audrey, Elliot reports that famous psychics revealed to him that Ivy is the reincarnation of his daughter Audrey. As confirmation, the psychics accurately described the lush penthouse apartment in great detail, including the fine art on the ceilings.

As the story unfolds, the Templeton’s take Elliot to court, accusing him of kidnapping Ivy. The defense lawyer took the position of defending reincarnation to prove that Elliot was correct about Ivy being the reincarnation of his daughter, Audrey Rose. At the trial, a hypnotist was brought in to perform a past-life regression on Ivy. It worked, but it got out of hand. Ivy became Audrey and the trauma of re-experiencing the fire was too great and Ivy died because the hypnotist did not call the girl by the name of Audrey. He kept saying “Ivy.”

I did some googling today and discovered some interesting information about the author of the book. In “the Case For Reincarnation,” by Joe Fisher, the screenplay “Audrey Rose” was inspired by an actual incident in the author’s life. The author heard ragtime piano being played by his six-year-old son who never had a music lesson. The boy told his father that his fingers were touching the keys on their own. This experience was the catalyst that directed the author’s thoughts toward the possibility of reincarnation.

I am sure that many were awed by this movie and some even became believers in reincarnation as a result of watching it. Yet there is a simple explanation. If the case of Audrey Rose had been true and not fiction, here is how I would explain it.

First of all, even bona-fide psychic mediums or channels receive information from demons. So Elliot was deceived by them to believe on reincarnation. The demons know how his daughter died. They saw it and probably arranged and even caused the car accident that killed his family in the first place. They worked on his emotions, causing him to change his belief system and to appear and act “strange.” They set him up to find Ivy by using the psychics.

Somehow, Ivy’s chakras were opened. When the kundalini energy is released and the person enters an altered state through dreaming, very often the person feels like he or she is burning from within. When the hypnotist took Ivy into a much deeper altered state, as the fire sensation intensified, so did the terror and so Ivy died of intense fear. Her heart stopped.

In this end time season, the enemy needs every human being’s chakras to be opened so that the Antichrist can perpetuate the biggest spiritual fraud—–EVER!!!!

How the Influence to Follow Sananda Occurs

28 Apr

Pastor Pam Sheppard wrote:

The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth asked an interesting question.  How many believers would He find on earth when He returns.. The rhetorical answer can be inferred to be  “not many.” Why?  Because of false conversions.

A false conversion occurs in the following instances:

1.  A person makes a decision to “accept” Jesus and then ends up boasting, “I am saved because I chose to follow Jesus.”  Often this person has repeated a sinner’s prayer or responded to a minister’s invitation to “walk forward” at the close of the sermon.  There is also no evidence of repentance.  Nor is their evidence  that the believer understood either the cross or the resurrection of Jesus Christ at the time of the alleged salvation experience.

2. A person assumes because his or her family are professing, churchgoing Christians, and since he or she has attended church from birth, that he or
she is “saved.”

3. A Charismatic/Pentecostal person has sought the Holy Ghost through the manifestation of the speaking in tongues.  Since the believer actually had a “tongue manifestation,” an assumption is made that the person is saved.

What I have uncovered through deliverance counseling, is this.

cover_the fake Jesus_new

When a counterfeit birth has taken place, the devil steps in, represented by a fallen angel who now calls himself “Jesus Sananda Immanuel.”  You can either obtain a copy of my book, “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” or google with Sananda’s name, and you will find that Sananda claims that he has infiltrated the entire organized church. Consequently, when prayers and worship are offered, it is Sananda, and not Jesus Christ of Nazareth who is unknowingly appealed to.  So in other words, the believer is actually practicing idolatry without realizing what has occurred and who he or she is worshiping.

If I were a betting person, I would put all of my savings on the expectation that 90% of the people who sincerely believe that they are born again fall in one of the three categories cited. Yet there is a fourth category. It includes those who have had supernatural experiences which included sin, the cross, godly sorrow with the bodily resurrection of the Lord either minimized, assumed, or not a part of the experience AT All.  This category adds another 5% to those who have had a false conversion.  The other 5 % were born again BEFORE they went to church, either in their homes, at an airport, etc. 

256x256_fit_one_bestfit (69)My point is: THEY DID NOT BECOME BORN AGAIN INSIDE A CHURCH.  If they believe they did, then they are deceived. 

How many of the people who have had a false conversion are of the elect of God?  I don’t know.  I suspect between 25-75%.  The rest are damned anyway because God did not choose them.

Examining whether or not YOU are in the faith is scriptural.  So check out II Cor 13:5.  If you want help with this very important task, fill out the contact form below.  Provide a detailed description of  the day you believe you got born again in the comment box.

Reiki? The Devil Heals Too! Then Comes the Torment!

16 Apr

Although I had never heard of Reiki in 1975, as I look back 4 decades, I realize today  that I was unknowingly  practicing Reiki techniques without really understanding what I appeared to  have  stumbled into on my own. Yet  I realize that it was no accident, for what  REALLY led me to occult healing  was the implementation of  the  hidden agenda and strategy designed for me by fallen angels.

reiki3

Back in the day, I was called a medium. Today, people who do what I once did are called channels.  I found that if I got still by shutting my mind down, when I put my hands on a sick person or body part, that something from them seemed to flow into me.  My subjects would also tell me that something from me poured into them.  When the force entered my hands, it was received as pain. I believed back then  that I received the pain from the sick  but that once I washed my hands, the pain left me and the infirmity left them.

I had several “subjects,” the first significant one being my grandma Greta who was about 85, dying from womb cancer. Every weekend, I put my hands on her belly and sucked out the pain.  She would rise and be her normal self.  When I left on Sunday, she was bedridden until I returned. I was not born again at that time, so I really did not have an understanding of what was going on.  However, while reading about Reiki, I believe I now understand.

reikiMy literature review describes Reiki as consisting of placing hands on the recipient and then activating the energy to flow through the practitioner’s hands into the recipient.  This is exactly what I was doing 40 years ago and continued to do for 25 years in my “healing ministry”. As I pointed out, I was being groomed in the early 70’s to be a psychic channel.  So I can relate to what present-day Reiki practitioners describe as what actually occurs in a Reiki attunement.

All mediums or channels have spirit guides.  These spirit guides pretend to be ascended masters, the spirits of dead ancestors or “whatever.” What the assigned fallen angels do is stand behind their “channels” and direct the entire process. Now when I did this, I was unaware that the spirits I was in communication with had any part of this.  I did not sense them or see them.  However, some Reiki practitioners report that they either feel the presence of these beings very strongly while others report that they can actually see their spirit guides.

Healing is a good thing when it comes from the Holy Spirit.  So it followed that once I became born again, I just naturally  transferred my healing technique  into my Christian ministry. I did so without question because I saw that the Lord Jesus Christ spent most of His time on earth healing the sick.  I wanted to use this power to do the same.  However, to add the Lord’s name to a practice that is not only Buddhist but also demonic, after 25 years of ignorance, I stopped putting my hands on people. I have learned that the practice of Reiki is one of the more common ways that people enter into altered states of consciousness, opening up their chakras to evil spirits.

As a result, I find myself working with the devastating aftermath of Reiki attunements as well as the outcomes connected to therapeutic touch, contemplative prayer and spiritual formation. People who are sane become irrational, manifesting strange thoughts, dreams and visions that run them crazy with fear and torment.  Then there are these strange physical symptoms that vary but are difficult to describe. Here are a few messages I received from tormented Reiki recipients:

I have a daily thought that satan has my soul. My family has rejected me. I have had several attacks and the doctors tell me I have a mental illness. In reality I can tell you there have been things I have seen. I saw a lake of fire and orange light going into the heavens. I saw smoke with dark spirits. People will talk with me then there seems to be a shift as if I am talking with a demon.

I was surrounded by many demons that were taking my soul. It felt like my mental capacity was being demolished while at the same time, my energy was being taken. While in a room with people, it felt like they were taking my soul or breath. When they would touch me, it felt like something was happening inside my body.

Why is this happening? Well, most Christian churchgoers believe that if something spiritually positive is happening, then it must be God.

It ain’t necessarily so!!!.

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

10 Mar

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

I never experienced any of that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How about you? What has YOUR stages of undeception been like? If you are at the beginning, the middle or even the final stages of being undeceived, you may need some pastoral coaching via telephone sessions.  If so, call 888-818-1117 or fill out the contact form below.  If you prefer to work on your own, I have prepared resources for you that you can review and obtain by clicking here.
