Exposing Fallen Angels

23 Aug

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.

Are You A Spiritual Addict?

5 Apr

Looking back, I believe I was a spiritual addict, coming off of one high and waiting for the next moment of ecstasy. Besides having frequent supernatural experiences, my addiction manifested most often in the area of intercession, where I went before God weeping and wailing, until my eyes were so swollen that I could barely see through them. I thought this was my greatest sacrifice. I looked so humble when I was in the midst of it, that even my church enemies were affected.

To overcome a spiritual addiction, one needs to accept truth. Were you spiritually addicted? What truths did you have to accept that broke it? In fact, are you STILL addicted?

I took note of a quote from a book I was reading online, I believe it comes from the book called “Toxic Faith.”

The practice of faith can provide tremendous relief from the pain and frustrations of life. When a person trusts in God, he or she no longer feels overwhelmed with problems or burdened from believing all problems must be resolved alone. This is a natural result of placing faith in a God who promises that his burden is light. But there is another kind of relief, an emotional frenzy that becomes an addiction and robs the individual of real faith. I was on a Christian talk show and afterward had the pleasure of going to lunch with the staff. They related stories of the variations of faith and the strange incidents that develop when faith becomes unbalanced.

When I once served as a pastor in the institutional church for  almost 25 years,  I witnessed and personally experienced  several instance  of toxic faith, way too many to either remember or describe.  Since I have been free from the church system since 2004, last year  I began to listen  to my old messages, going back  to a time when I was pastoring  a church I founded in 1996 called Healing Waters, with my daughter as assistant pastor.

What a duo we were! LOL.  To put it bluntly without any sugar-coating, WE WERE WILD!!! She would pray and then go off into that sing-song whooping that black preachers are known for. Behind her, as a backdrop, I was speaking in tongues. I could hear myself goin “”babababababa.” I have since learned that Baba, is one of Satan’s pet names his followers call him. These sermons and  messages are on my cell phone. As I  listened while on the treadmill in the gym or as I lifted wfted weights, I almost became  sick to my stomach.

God is so merciful and patient.

For 25 years, possibly more,  I received  supernatural experiences everyday or at least twice a week. Dreams mostly, but other things as well. Back in my church days,  I believe I lived more in the faith of my experiences than in God Himself. If I was not truly born again, I would have been very disappointed when all of this spiritual captivation ceased. after decades  of frequency.

Do I miss all of that supernatural excitement?

Good question.

Absolutely not.  Once I found that most of my former  mysticism came from the devil or one of his religious evil spirits, I WAS DONE!!!

The truth is that I really  embrace  the peace and my former of fear of dying. My quiet faith undergirds my knowledge that I am  kept by God and I am fine with it.  I have “entered into His rest” having gone through much struggle to get rid of the rollercoaster ride of ecstatic spiritual experiences.  In 2007 and again in 2008, God spoke to me in a quiet yet thoroughly  intense way.  He sent His thoughts to  my spirit, words received by my mind, and I answered Him back without opening my mouth.   I did not groan, moan, wail, leap, run, shout or any other fleshly outbursts.  I sat at my desk at home quiet and still  as we communed spirit to Spirit.

Over the last 10 years, I have received messages and teachings in dreams and in sudden, kind of pop-up revelations.  Out of those messages from the Holy Spirit, 6 books were birthed.  What I know today is that anyone who claims they hear from God daily and that they have seen Him frequently, face to face is either a liar or he or she has been duped by a religious fallen angel who serves Jesus Sananda Immanuel who serves Maitreya, who serves Satan himself.

So I no longer push God to speak to me in a big way.  I respect Him and so I wait on Him.

Its been a decade now.  Time flew by real fast.  So I am ready to hear from God in a big way again—soon!

Toxic Religion and the Fear of Hell

3 Dec

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

The “fear” of not being saved/born again is a tactic used by evil entities to capture and keep the individual in bondage.

The methods are numerous. A popular one is preaching or teaching on Hell – then giving the altar call afterwards to scare up a conversion.  The evil entities will play on the individuals’ emotions, and fill their minds with such fearful thoughts,  that they can not rightly think or reason for themselves. Many misunderstand and are motivated by what seems like a desire for God, but when you look closely at the roots of their experience,  it is out of fear of going to Hell that produces a surface “desire” for God which birthed a false conversion that came through the underhanded work of a religious fallen angel.

The doctrines of original sin and eternal damnation are true.  Yet  the way those doctrines are preached have caused  tremendous psychological distress, forcing folk into  to a  double bind. The duality is that they are judged  as  guilty and responsible and face eternal punishment, yet they  have no ability to do anything about it. In fact, they cannot even stop sinning altogether because they  are not really saved. so the captives to this dilemma  continue to confess and be forgiven, hoping that they have met the criteria despite a  complete lack of feedback about whether they  will actually make it into heaven.
 Were you led to God because of fear of hell? The psychological damage does not go away overnight. In fact, because this sort of indoctrination in young childhood is so powerful, the fear of hell can last a lifetime despite rational reasoning. Likewise the damage to self-esteem and basic self-trust can be crippling. This is why there are so many thousands of walking wounded – people accused and condemned by  a religious demon., aka the spirit of the Anti-Christ.
Deep down, the fear makes it that much harder to actually LOVE, or even LIKE, the God they  are supposed to love in order not to  go to this horrible place of eternal torture.

It’s like a catch-22.If You DON’T love God with all your heart, soul, and mind,  the teaching strongly implies that you are going to this horrible place. Yet just the fact of having to force yourself to conjure up feelings of love under threat of torture, makes it IMPOSSIBLE to do. All  such captives to this form of toxic religion can  do is bury those feelings & deceive themselves. – So spiritual deception becomes a spiritual defense  mechanism to keep them  alive, because  if they  really comprehended the dilemma placed in front of them, how could they NOT end up in a mental hospital?  One must have  strong, sound mind to withstand the accusation, condemnation, guilt and shame that religious demons act upon such captives on a daily basis.
This is spiritual abuse. Torture, in fact. Toxic theology, at its best.

So what is the answer?

Live your life.  Do not listen to such preaching.  We are not to preach hell but we are to preach the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  If you have been chosen by God,  you belong to God even on your most sinful day.  Before you die, He will come for you, even if its at your death bed. The Holy Spirit  needs less than 5 seconds to save you and snatch you out of the devil’s hands.

Also know that the true  desire for God comes from God.  We are ALL sinners and the scriptures reveal that none of us would desire Him on our own for any reason.  So if you desire God because you are afraid of hell, then you have not heard from God. God does not hand out spirits of fear and torment to His people.  So if you are in fear, you have not heard from God.  Also what that tells me is that you believe more in hell than in the God who created the place, not originally for us, but for Satan, fallen angels and demons.  Satan and demons are not IN hell—at least not yet.

If you truly desire God, then He put that desire in you.  He has given you the desires of His own heart.  And once He  has given you a desire for Him, He will cause you to be born again. Read how He does it from the prophet Eziekiel:

Ezekiel 36:25-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)

25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will removethe heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.

A Profile of A Religious Detox

10 Oct

By Gloria

As a member of RESCUE who has experienced being set free from demons, one of the things that surprised me as I went through counseling and detoxed from religion was the fact that I had engaged in witchcraft without my knowledge. Looking back I never interacted with people who engaged in witchcraft. In fact, to my knowledge,i never even read occult books or watched any occult shows. I considered such things as the worship of the devil— pure evil which i didn’t want to be associated with.

Consequently, It was shocking and humbling to discover that some of my self- righteous religious acts were no different from those of a new age practitioner . So even though I never engaged in the occult, it was shocking to discover that I learned witchcraft practices in the Institutional Church.

Witchcraft can simply be defined as the practice of magic, the use of spells and invoking spirits.

There are several ways that I was duped into witchcraft while attending an Institutional church.

Witchcraft Prayers

I owned several spiritual warfare books and recited statements that involved commanding “angels”, the stars, planets and even God. I would bind the devil and cast him back to hell. These prayers used scripture out of context. For sure, no human can command God to do anything, so to think otherwise is foolish. We lie to ourselves if we think God is at our beck and call.

To command the sun, moon, planets and stars is delusional, but to command angels has a dangerous spin to it. Gods’ angels do not accept our invitations or instructions but fallen angels do, in order for the devil to have legal right to be in your life, you have to invite him in.

My invitation to these fallen angels had severe consequences. I started suffering from demonic torment – my mind, body and soul was under constant attack. My fear grew greatly as the attacks would happen mainly at night.

During prayer meetings, people used to be manipulated to change their ways by being shamed in public prayers where intercessors would air out people’s issues. When ministers control & manipulate people’s behavior, their actions are a clear sign of witchcraft. There are many examples of how people are controlled in the church and public prayer is one of the them.

Religious Rituals

To counter the demonic torment that I suffered from, I turned to more rituals – applying anointing oil on my bed, door, windows, ceilings and on myself. Inviting the Holy Spirit to come in and fill my apartment, I played worship music and recited bible verses and prayers. None of this helped, In fact, I simply added fuel to the fire. My religious acts were also motivated by fear not faith.

Bibliomancy

I would also, seek out random passages in the Bible and apply them to my life with no regard for the context. I also used it to “decree and declare” my future and pray for certain events to occur. This practice which I was taught in the church actually comes from the Middle ages where people who practiced divination would open the bible and whichever page they landed upon, they would read out the scripture and use it to give spiritual insight into what they are looking for. I was pretty much behaving like my own psychic.

Worshipping in the flesh

The Bridal paradigm in the church has brought about the increase of love songs to Jesus which are disguised as praise and worship songs. Everytime I engaged in a worship session, I would feel warm and tingly in my chest, I assumed that these were “feelings of God’s love” overflowing in me. These experiences were short lived which caused me to depend upon an emotional roller-coaster. The more I felt unloved,the more needed to attend more worship sessions to feel loved. I’ve come to learn that love is not a feeling & more importantly the Holy Spirit does not entertain our flesh. These manifestations of “love” were all sensual and had nothing to do with the Spirit of God. True believers of the Lord Jesus have to worship in Spirit & in Truth.

In the New Idolatry, Pastor Pam Sheppard writes in detail how witchcraft has infiltrated the Institutional Church, One part that stood out to me is how a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian could address a similar issue using methods that many would assume are worlds apart, when in reality, they actually are similar and run parallel to each other. Below is an excerpt from the book:-

“For the sake of comparison, consider how both a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian would approach a typical problem, namely, a woman seeking to stop the infidelity of a lover or husband. From the occultist, the woman might be required to purchase a defense enchantment like burying her man’s shirt at full moon, while pronouncing a curse or a magic formula seven times. As the shirt wears out and disintegrates in the ground overtime, so also will the man’s love for the other woman fade and dissolve.

Both the occultists and those deceived by charismatic teachings rely on the credulity and readiness of those they counsel and advise. In like manner, charismatic witchcraft might approach this classic problem from a variety of religious perspectives, with the twist that God is made amenable to the woman’s plans. Supernatural dreams and visions labeled the discerning of spirits, a word of wisdom, a word of knowledge and prophecy, intercessory prayers of “binding and loosing” and the taking of scripture out of their natural context and applying them to the woman’s personal agenda are the primary methods of choice. In this instance, the woman might be advised to pray over her man’s side of the bed, anoint it with oil or holy water, name it and claim it by sending forth evil prayers against her man’s lover, in unsavory ways unbefitting to Jesus Christ, and pray controlling, manipulative prayers to change the man’s behavior.Rather than deal openly with the issues of infidelity, sin and spousal abuse, Charismatics are infamous for seeking “the supernatural solution.”

To my dismay, I learned, that many practices both in and out of the church that are widely accepted as normal today actually have their origins in witchcraft. I thank God for my deliverance journey that started when I reached out to Pastor Pam who walked me through the deliverance process, helped me break my false conversion and discard false teachings. I got healed from my torment once I received the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Since we live in such deceptive times, you could be engaging in witchcraft practices, totally unaware. The danger in doing so is you open yourself up to the spiritual world and give demons legal rights to enter your life and run it amok.

Does Jesus Sananda Have Your Soul?

9 Oct

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 he 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.

To review or purchase a paperback, click the book’s cover. To purchase an e-book, click the title link highlighted in the text.

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 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 not a part of the experience AT All. This category ads 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.

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.

Let Us Clean Up the House BEFORE the Bridegroom Comes!

7 Oct

I personally suspect that the institutional church has already been judged relatively recently, perhaps decades, maybe even a century ago. So the church is not “the house.”

Satan began to progressively establish a seat within church divisions, sects, and organizations since around the third century. Therefore, I believe that the book of Revelation was prophetically  written about every church age. However, death has been a real blessing for the saints who have already left this earth prior to “the end.” Truly, those who are alive when the Lord Jesus Christ returns for the dead and the living will face a challenge that no other church age has been required to face. I believe that we are approaching  that hour NOW—as we live in the best of times and the worst of times.

IT WOULD SURPRISE ME IF WE HAVE 10 YEARS LEFT TO PREPARE. So the house that we are to clean up is within us. Spirit, soul and body. If we clean up the spirit and the soul first, the body will follow.

We all have been lulled into a semi or fully delusional state where we are drugged into believing something we know deep down inside ‘just isn’t right.’ We just went to church and went along with the programs to get along. We didn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak, out of fear that we would be labeled ‘rebellious,’ ‘unfaithful,’ “homophobic, “‘unteachable,’ or a host of other names leadership likes to place on thinking people who were blessed with common sense AND wisdom to know both error and  game when we see it.

When I was a faithful pastor in the institutional church, , I had several memorable dreams that showed me the spiritual condition of the entire IC but I misinterpreted them. I thought the dreams were pertaining to the actual church I saw, when a particular church was only intended to be representative. A symbol OF THEM ALL.

In these dreams, the pulpit and altar area were defiled with menstrual blood, feces and urine. I would also dream about toilets overflowing in the sanctuary. I did not understand those dreams until after I left the IC.

I now know that the defilement represented the plagues. For in the natural, plagues have broken out because of infectious, unclean conditions like rats and such. The unclean natural condition of a house will cause it to be condemned, boarded up. A haunted house is filled with the demons that once inhabited the dead who lived in that house. When the inhabits died, the demons came out and did not have anywhere else to go and reside unless new people rented or bought the house.

I call the IC a haunted house because it is filled with evil spirits who have taken Her over, because of the plagues. These are the seducing spirits that the Apostle Paul warned Timothy about. They are fallen angels that specialize in teaching religion. Jesus called the religious folk of his day, white washed tombs on the outside, contaminated with dead men’s bones on the inside. This is the institutional church today. It is a huge whitewashed tomb. A haunted house.

Don’t let the white washed physicality, Her stained glass beauty fool you. The spirit realm is invisible to our eyes but it still exists. In the spirit realm, every pulpit is covered in unclean blood, urine and feces, no matter how sincere the pastor or how helpful and kind are Her members.

I treat the IC “without comment or notice.” I don’t even keep up with what she is doing nor do I spend much time warning people to “come out of Her.” I have faith that the Lord will find a way to rescue His elect from Satan’s  grip. My task is simply to bind up the wounded and prepare the elect for the next battle.

Just know that I cannot fight for you until you are no longer attending the institutional church, ANYWHERE. Even if you are in a home church, teaching and preaching in the same manner as the IC, you are still associated with what is unclean.

I only expect a few to contact me. You will know in your spirit if I am the person to pastor you online. When you have heard from the Lord, call me at 1-888-818-1117 or send an email to getreadyforthelord@gmail.com
