Deception In End-times: God Is In Control!

8 Aug

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

In order for truth to set us free, we are going to be challenged in all ways, spirit, soul, body, and mind. Challenges emerge from  people, places, and things, attitudes, and beliefs. The  main challenge  is linked to our assumptions.” Many of us don’t realize it but we assume God is not in control, and that we need to help Him out with everything. Part of walking in the spirit is to walk by faith knowing that God is ordering our steps. If you’ve had a false conversion and you know it, that was God. God has ordered your steps to know it. The word of God says that God’s people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. Now you have some knowledge that you can work with.

Don’t panic and try to figure out  “what must I do now?” What you must do now is wait. We need to learn how to wait. If things are going along the way God wants them to go along, then you may not hear from Him. Think about walking a dog. The dog is on a chain, and he’s walking along, and then he moves over into an area or a location where the one who’s walking him doesn’t want him to go, and a tug is placed on that chain. That’s kind of how walking in the spirit is. You’re walking by faith. God has got the path laid out, and He’s even got the trouble spots there for a reason. Don’t just think that because you ran into trouble or it looks like you failed in a particular situation that God was not guiding your journey. With decades to look back on and review, I  see God  in my failures because in His divine wisdom, He knew  that I would learn and retain  more wisdom from my  failures than from my apparent successes, particularly where my  productivity was not a struggle.

Bearing fruit is cultivated and refined by trouble and tribulation. So, when you have a piece of information that doesn’t sit well with you, and you say “Well why didn’t God tell me before? Why is it that I spent so many years in the Institutional Church and I was blind? Why didn’t He come to me before?” when I was finally undeceived, I never asked God such questions.  Why not? Well, because I have been blessed with  too much respect and fear of the Lord.  Not fear derived from panic, but sheer homage and respect.  So I am careful not  to question Him about His timing.  Even though I came into the church without any religious background, God took  28 years before my  blinders started coming off.  The issue I had to come to terms with is an assumption that the three dreams I had that compelled me to go to a particular  local denominational church DID NOT COME FROM GOD. As the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil,  the Holy Spirit led me into a a local church to be deceived. As such,  He allowed the enemy to send me those three dreams. Why would God do such a thing? Well,  He had His reasons. I  could not do the work that I  am chosen to do if I  had no background in the IC.  I would not be able to understand what those of you who He is calling out  of Her now have been through if I  had not been through it myself.

So yes, the enemy is put into the plan by God Himself.

Consequently, I have  never asked  God, “why did You wait so long?” Nor did I  go running around to other people or to other ministries to desperately confirm what God was saying and doing with me. Actually,  I  never looked for anybody’s approval or disapproval.  I  just kept moving forward. I simply  shook  all  religious dust from my feet. If people reject what I teach and practice, I leave them alone.  I don’t sulk.  I am too busy  preparing myself for those who WILL hear my voice. . As far as those who don’t hear, I say to myself  “Maybe they’ll come back around again, perhaps  they won’t.” that is it.  My thoughts on those who reject my teachings are brief and impersonal. The problem is too broad, too severe to get stuck on any individual.  When I am about the business of moving forward, I don’t challenge my equilibrium by turning around to look back.  I keep in mind that God is in control. He is in control of what He will allow the enemy to do to one of His own. He is in control. Period.

Think about Job. The enemy could do this, this, and this, but couldn’t do that. He couldn’t take Job’s life. There was something that God wanted Job to learn from that experience and he learned it. What Job learned was to stop being so religious because his religion was based in fear. After all, the very thing Job feared came upon him.  So Job learned to trust God, because He,— God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit— is in control, and He’s guiding our steps.

So be warned that the Lord will resist the proud. Spiritual pride can be our strongest enemy. .

So when you feel and even say things  like “how could I have been deceived, how could I have been so stupid,” you should understand this.  Present day deception is not new.  In fact, it  has been going on for centuries. So just be happy when God wakes you up. Don’t get all offended. God resists the proud. So receive your grace  by your humility.

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

The Soul and False Conversion

1 Jun

By Pastor Pam

HOW A FALSE CONVERSION OCCURS

Because the spirit and the soul are not separate but  tightly knitted or braided  around each other as are  the ligaments, marrow and jonts in our legs, it is difficult to discern the difference between the two.  The soul is easiest to recognize because the concerns and needs of “self” are generally apparent.  We recognize the “body” side of the soul because we can see the results through the activity of the natural frame.  We can see selfishness, ambition, competition, and jealousy  because the body,  through material and natural things, will engage in scenarios that expose self striving.   

However, where we fall short is in our ability  to discern the soul from the spirit, which is also “flesh.” I am considering a gospel account of the words of the Lord when a funeral procession went by. He turned to his disciples and said, “let the dead bury the dead.”  How can the dead bury the dead? What Jesus was actually saying is “let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead.” Meaning: those who are alive in both the body and the soul have a dead spirit.  A dead spirit is one that is separated, alienated, and without God in the world.  That is a dead spirit.  It doesn’t mean that there is no awareness or activity in the spirit.

The spirit of the lost is very much alive in the kingdom of darkness, but he or she is alienated from the kingdom of heaven. It makes itself known through various nightmares and irrational fears.  When it is active, man’s dead spirit is open to the hellish dark world of spirits ruled over by the Prince of darkness. When it is both active AND powerful, the spirit is capable of a variety of supernatural feats including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience and astral travel or out of body experiences.

When a lost or alienated person “accepts Jesus” as Lord and Savior, it can’t be the spirit who does so because the spirit  of that person is dead, alienated, and walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in those who are disobedient by the lust of their flesh.  In such a condition, the soul has to take over.  In the lost, the soul fulfills the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and the lost person has the nature of self consciousness.

So since a dead spirit cannot “accept God,” the soul takes over in its parts: mind, emotions and volition or will and says, “I accept Jesus as Lord and Savior” and begins a religious ritual that imitates intimacy and relationship. The working of the enemy through the mind or ideas of man quenches the work of the Holy Ghost to quicken that person’s spirit.  For the powers of darkness are keenly clever in working alongside of and simulating the born again experience.

When a person is REALLY born again, the soul takes a back seat.  The Holy Ghost “quickens” the spirit through repentance. As defined by Paul to the Ephesians, to quicken means to be made alive.  As Jesus Christ was raised from the dead physically or bodily, to be born again is to be raised from the dead spiritually. In other words, a dead spirit has been raised to becoming a vessel for the Holy Ghost.  Since the spirit does not have a will, volition is a choice or decision made by the soul.  What the spirit has is intuition. Paul revealed that the reason the spirit is raised from the dead is because “God is rich in mercy.” So the resurrection of the spirit begins in the intuition and then translated into  understanding  by the soul.

When the soul “accepts Jesus,” the spirit remains dead but with great acting skills, the soul can religiously  imitate the things of God. The fallen spirit of man, alienated and separated from God is sunk down into the soul so that the soul manifests as intellect or sensuality, often in both. In such cases, the soul reigns over both the spirit and the body. The way that the new life reaches the spirit is shown in the Lord’s own words: You must be born again.  The Holy Ghost “breathes” where ever He chooses. This is not the decision of man but the will of God.

The believer who has been raised from the dead in the spirit to newness of like is born of the Spirit or “born again.” The Holy Ghost, who takes up a dwelling place in the reborn spirit, has given the believer a revelation of the Cross and the Lord’s resurrection. This revelation is first received in the spirit. As James indicates in his letter, the wisdom that is from above—from the Holy Spirit—is pure, peaceable, gentle, merciful—without any element of the life of the soul—opinions, self views, strife-jealousy. So when a person is born again, the spirit imparts  understanding  to the soul through the mind, will and the emotions.

What is happening among those who claim that “they accepted Jesus,” is that they have done so through the soul and therefore, their spirits have remained dead.  The intellect of one whose spirit is dead is decidedly fallible and becomes the most dangerous of the soul’s gifts because God seekers use their minds to understand spiritual truths.  The scriptures reveal that the soulish man cannot receive the things of the Spirit, because they can only be spiritually discerned.

According to the late great Jessie Penn Lewis, “It is the soulish element in teachers and professors of holiness, which is often the cause of separation and disunion.  There may be, it is true, love in the heart to those who ‘differ,’ but the ‘differences’ divide nevertheless, because the demoniacal powers, able to work upon the soulish element in the believer, always emphasize or exaggerate the difference in “views of truth,” instead of magnifying the points of union, and even drive eager believers to ‘fight’ for their view of ‘truth,‘ under the name of ‘witnessing for God.” It is also the soulish element in Christians which insists upon the minute correspondence of others its ‘views of truth,’ and ‘tithe mint and anise and cumin’, in words whilst leaving ‘undone the weightier matters of the law’—which in the gospel dispensation of the Spirit between believers as the condition of their growth into ‘unity of the faith. ‘In brief, the soul-life, influenced by evil supernatural powers, is the main cause of divisions and separation among the professing, and even the true children of God.”

For this reason as pointed out by Sis. Jessie, the churches are filled with nominal worshippers of Christ, who show no marks of a true Christian life within them. In a nutshell, influences that bypass the spirit and only reach the soul may prepare the way by bringing the seeker within the reach of the truth which is read from the scriptures.  Outer strivings may make for a kind  self righteousness that  has a value and place in the world.  However, by virtue of these outer trappings, such seekers  will be fooled into believing that the strivings of the soul is evidence that he or she is born again.  Not so.  Since God views self righteous as filthy rags, the spirits of such seekers is untouched. Dead.  Alienated.  Without God.

Those whose souls imitate salvation are diversified.  Dynamic personalities   sway and move the emotions of others.  Their fruit—like TD Jakes for example—is to move the emotions of the soul.  The problem is that the faith of the hearers stands in the influence or wisdom of people like TD, and not in the power of God.  Intellectuals uses schemes to reach men and bring them to God, some preaching hell and damnation to frighten people to God, others using heaven, prosperity, gospelfests, social fellowship, networking  etc.

The outcome is that people are attracted to the fake Jesus, and not of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What happens is a dangerous thing, so dangerous, that I will have to address it in more detail Part III. Suffice it to say for now, that people who are deceived into believing that they got born again, STILL have a dead spirit.  When dead, the spirit is susceptible to the evil side of the spirit world where psychic power is mistaken for the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Consequently, unsaved people are speaking in tongues, laying hands on others, imparting demons into vulnerable people.  Also, when people with dead spirits pray to the Father in the name of His Son, the one who answers their prayers is the imposter, the Fake Jesus.

Can a person whose spirit has been quickened STILL allow his or her soul to dominate?  Most decidedly YES. These are those who have a sensual relationship with Jesus.  When they speak of “being in His presence,” they are not satisfied unless they can feel the presence of God continually upon their flesh, and almost bi-polar in the spirit, they experience loads of ups and downs akin to spiritual mood swings.  They need to be taught how to walk by faith and not by sight or feeling.  Although the Holy Spirit dwells in their spirits, they often allow the soul to predominate because they do not understand the spirit life and the actions of the human spirit in co-action with God.

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.

Living by the Spirit vs. the Flesh

1 Jan

Competition

In today’s society, what I see as the age of Laodicea, what people consider “Christian” is actually CARNALITY that exists in RELIGION. It is OF THE FLESH. It appeals to the DESIRES OF THE FLESH. The majority of the organized church consists of CARNAL people who consider themselves Christian and includes carnal practices that people engage in that they THINK are about God. Everything they do and practice is with a carnal mind. Everything they do in church is about THEM and the frivolous things of this world. Their minds consist of things that encourage them to be consumed by attaining everything on this earth. Every scripture in the Bible is somehow supposed to be for THEM. They are self-absorbed, thinking that somehow, in their self-absorption, they are serving God. Even the praise and worship is about SELF. They attempt to worship God in order to get some type of spiritual high…as if God is some kind of drug. They believe that every fleshly desire they have is supposed to be granted by God, as if God is a magical genie, just sitting around waiting to grant wishes. They think that, if they just do this or that religious practice enough, and pray for it enough, then God will just wave his magic wand and giving them what they want, hence misinterpreting  Psalm 37:4, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart,” twisting it to mean that all they have to do is pretend to delight in the Lord by engaging in religious practices, and then POOF! God is going to go ahead and magically give them everything their hearts desire, when in actuality, in Psalm 37:4, the meaning of the scripture is quite the contrary. It actually means that when a person is delighting him/herself in the Lord, HIS desires will become THEIR desires…it is about the Lord changing a person, making him/her a new creation, desiring what the Lord would desire so that he/she can be more like HIM. But most people in the organized church don’t get this because they are CARNAL “Christians.”

Romans 8:7 explains this succinctly, yet quite well. “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”

The CARNAL MIND IS AT ENMITY WITH GOD. What does enmity mean? It means “the state or feeling of being actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.”  So what does this tell you about church and religion?

As for me, everything I did and thought about used to be carnal…yet I considered myself a Christian. Truth is, I didn’t know the FIRST THING about living a life dedicated to the Lord. The Lord showed me that I was NOT born again. I was so carnal that my motivation for being saved was because I wanted to go to heaven. Folks, if you think like this, THAT IS CARNAL. Salvation is about the LORD. Godly sorrow is just that…GODLY SORROW. Sorrow for the Lord. Anybody who simply said a sinner’s prayer, responded to an alter call, joined a church, or chased after God out of fear of going to hell is led by CARNAL DESIRES. THOSE THINGS DO NOT SAVE YOU.  I only used him when I wanted him. I used to want to be saved because it benefited ME…nevermind the power of the cross, and the incredible sacrifice Jesus Christ of Nazareth made…nevermind the heartless crucifixtion he had to endure…the SPOTLESS LAMB…because I, in my nature am so wicked and evil that I could not save myself. The Lord had to SHOW me the wickedness of who I am…not just what I did. It was then that I realized that salvation is  not about focusing on what we did and how miserable our lives are (like the churches falsely teach), but rather the wickedness of WHO WE ARE…THAT WE ARE SO CARNAL MINDED THAT EVERYTHING WE DO IS CENTERED AROUND US, and that it is a PRVILEGE to be called to salvation…NOT, “Oh, my life is so miserable, I don’t want to go to hell, so I am just going to do some fleshly thing to choose God.” HOW DISRESPECTFUL IS THAT???!!! When the Lord CALLED me to salvation, I did NOT choose. The Holy Spirit blew on me and showed me the POWER of the cross and resurrection. HE CHANGED ME. I DID NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING…NO ALTER CALLS, NO SINNERS PRAYER, NO SPEAKINGIN TONGUES, NO “DECISION-MAKING..” HE SIMPLY SAVED ME. Hearing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ was all it took. The TRUE Gospel that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, he is GOD, who came to earth in the form of Jesus Christ, he lived a sinless human life, shed his blood and died for the WICKEDNESS of humanity, and CAME BACK TO LIFE IN THE SAME BODY HE DIED IN, AND IS NOW ALIVE TODAY, IN HEAVEN, SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER. THAT WAS IT. No religious mumbo jumbo. Just the Gospel. When I heard that, the Holy Spirit did the rest and re-birthed my spirit. I can CONFIDENTLY stand here today and say that I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Lord saved me!!!! And IT WAS NOT IN SOME FLESHLY, RELIGIOUS CHURCH!!!! Now that I AM truly born again, any personal desires for me are no more. I have no desires of my own, but to serve the Lord, and live my life on this earth, while I’m here…nothing extra. I don’t expect anything, nor do I feel that I deserve anything. I live in peace daily, and am not bogged down by the weight of this world singing CARNAL gospel songs that do NOTHING for my spirit, and do NOTHING to uplift the Lord, but rather put the focus on self and fleshly desires. Yes, there are a few songs that actually DO focus on the Lord and on the Gospel, but most of those songs are about the FLESH. THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS THE BONDAGE OF RELIGION. And I am happy to be free of religion. Oh, I have MUCH MORE TO WRITE ABOUT THIS!  This is just the tip of the iceberg. You aint see NOTHIN YET!

A friend of mine couldn’t have said it better: “Religion teaches people to seek personal destinies and it is another false perception of God. People think that God waves a wand of fulfilling fleshly desires and so they do not understand that the true focus is not our own.”

So how about YOU? Do you have your OWN destiny? Do you focus on carnal desires, yet profess to be a Christian? If so, are you willing to give up your desires in order to TRULY understand what it means to live a life revolved around the Lord?

This post is not for the haughty, religious folks whose only effort is to try to prove to me that they are “saved,” or to try to debunk what I am saying, as a means to engage in meaningless, religious arguments.

NO. This post is for those whom the Lord is calling OUT of the organized church system, and who are humble enough to consider that something may be wrong with the religion that they thought was their avenue to God. It is for those who are courageous enough to DARE to DETOX themselves from everything religion has taught them, in an effort to find the TRUE God, and NOT some sorry religious copy.

IF YOU CONNECT WITH THIS POST, CONTACT US. THERE ARE OTHERS OUT THERE JUST LIKE YOU WHO HAVE NOTICED THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG, AND SOUGHT AFTER THE TRUTH. YOU DON’T HAVE TO SUBJECT YOURSELF TO FALSE RELIGIOUS PRACTICES THAT ARE GOING ON IN THE CHURCHES TODAY. GOD IS NOT IN THAT. BREAK AWAY FROM THE NORM, AND TRY A NEW THING!

FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US FOR HELP AT getreadyforthelord@gmail.com or maybe you are still in the discovery stage, and want to figure out some more things before you contact us. Either way, we are here. In these Endtimes, it is of EXTREME importance that you are prepared, knowing that the churches of the organized church system are not of God.

Therefore, here are links to these two books that are vital to your survival in end-times. They are EXCELLENT for understanding what is going on in the churches, and why you are seeing what you are seeing:

Going to Heaven as a Motivation

24 Jun

If your motivation to becoming born again is to get to heaven, you have COMPLETELY missed the mark. Becoming born again is motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our personal desires are pushed aside, and the Holy Spirit comes and shows us a “New Thing…” one that gives us saving faith in the power of the crucifixion, cross, and resurrection of Jesus Christ…NOTHING about YOU like the Institutional  Church (IC) teaches. In the IC, it’s all about man, works, and MAN’S desire to get what HE wants out of the deal. When it’s the REAL DEAL, you are out of the picture, and Jesus Christ is the center.

I don’t know about you, but growing up in the organized church system, I was often taught that going to heaven was a motivation to wanting to be “saved.” I had absolutely NO DESIRE for God, nor did I really understand what the cross TRULY meant, and what the resurrection of Jesus Christ really was.

In most churches today, the preacher’s focus on the altar call is on the individual desiring a better life for himself, or perhaps the individual being so hopeless and guilty about their lifestyle that they are heavily encouraged to “make a decision for Christ” before it’s too late. What a self-centered approach to salvation!

As a reminder, Pastor Pam Sheppard had NO desire for God when  He began his work in her and rebirthed her spirit. So desiring God and doing works to avoid ending up in hell certainly can’t be prerequisites to becoming born again. And Paul was a persecutor of Christians, yet the Lord saved him. Neither Paul not Pam were worried about “getting into heaven,” or avoiding hell. Neither was feeling so guilty and helpless that they did works to try to save themselves.

As for me, the thought of heaven or hell never even entered my mind when I heard the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was way too caught up in what happened to Jesus Christ, whereas beforehand when I was part of the IC, my MAIN motivation for trying to be “right with God” was because I wanted to get to heaven in the end…no concern for the cross and resurrection, and no change occurred in me. I just wanted to do all the works it took in order to be saved…when we all know that we are saved by GRACE, and NOT by WORKS. There is NOTHING we can do to get saved. Our human works are not enough. Only the Holy Spirit has the power to quicken our spirits, give us FAITH in the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, cause us to repent, and make is new, born again creatures. WE DON’T HAVE THE POWER TO DO THAT. WE CANNOT SAVE OURSELVES FROM OUR OWN WICKEDNESS. WE ARE POWERLESS. This is why the ENTIRE salvation gospel preached in the IC is COMPLETELY FALSE. The IC tried to step in and do the Holy Spirit’s job, which is not possible. I dare say that if your salvation experience occurred in a church service within the IC, you are probably NOT born again, and have a False Conversion…no matter how GOOD it felt. THINK DEEPLY ON THIS.

Freedom From False Conversions

by Pam Sheppard

What I am finding in my counseling practice with Christians, is that churchgoers who are reporting that they are being tormented by demons DID NOT REALLY GET SAVED WHEN THEY THOUGHT THAT THEY DID!!!!! Besides not understanding repentance in a fullness, I believe that what some professing Christians miss is that a resurrected body is the same body that died,—- the original body that has been made new or “renovated.” A glorified body is never subject to death again.

Lazarus was raised from the dead in his “same” body but his body was not glorified because he would die again. Lazarus was not raised immortal. Maria was the first client that manifested this problem. For a year, I did not realize that Maria did not understand this concept. When people say “Jesus was raised from the dead,” those who don’t understand are just repeating a memorized phrase that they have accepted. But when you go deeper, those who have been made confused by word of faith teaching will say “Oh, Jesus had a glorified body which means He had a new body.” I ask them “Well what happened to the old body?” Some will say “it was buried, it decomposed, it floated away with his spirit, “I don’t know”or just “it disappeared in some supernatural way, like the work of a magician who pulls a rabbit out of a hat!”

The root of the problem is that they have misunderstand the scripture in Corinthians which says “it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body, and there is a spiritual body.” I cor 15:44. What they don’t understand is that a natural body is physical and a spiritual body is material as well. A natural body is subject to death. A spiritual body is not. A natural body when dead will decompose or be “corruptible.” A spiritual body is raised “incorruptible.” It will never decay. That is the difference between the two.

So when I ask the key question, “was Jesus raised as a physical body or was He raised as a spirit, the response will be “He was raised as a spirit.” In spite of the fact that Jesus showed his original yet glorified body to Thomas and said to him “a spirit does not have flesh and bone as I have”, they STILL miss it. A crucial error that will determine where they abide in eternity.

I didn’t write this.. Paul did. It is in I Cor 15:17: And if Christ is not risen, your faith is vain (futile) AND YOU ARE STILL IN YOUR SINS. To still be in your sins is to “not be saved or born again.” So if you don’t understand what resurrection means, then how can you believe that “Jesus was risen?” So the logical conclusion is that anyone who does not understand resurrection but came to the Jesus of their understanding IS NOT SAVED!

As both a servant of God and a professional Christian counselor, I really thought that when people said “He is risen,” that they understood what that meant.

Thirty-four years ago when I myself was unsaved, I understood resurrection because I had no concept at all of what a spirit was. I was all flesh: a two-part being of mind and body. So since I didn’t have an understanding of what the word “spirit” meant, I was never confused into thinking that “to be raised” meant to float away as a spirit. All I knew about resurrection was what I had seen in the movies or heard at Easter. I laughed at this. I said “Christians must think that people are stupid. It is very clear to me that when you are dead you are DEAD and there is no coming back to life.”

On the day that I got born again in my living room, faith to believe that Jesus came back to life in the same body that He died in at the cross literally burst through my mind and I was in a state of shock. After I repented for being a sinner, the resurrection flashed into my mind immediately. Once I went to church and became a minister, I didn’t think that what happened to me was supposed to happen to everyone that got saved, even after I read “confess the Lord Jesus with your mouth AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT HE WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD! The Greek word for “heart” is “cardia.” Cardia means “the mind, the emotions, the thoughts and the feelings.” The spiritual heart is a part of the human soul.

Once I explain the resurrection to MOST of my clients who have been confused, none become saved prior to dealing with the issues of being set free from demons. In some cases, the religious demon is so entrenched in the person, that it must be cast out first so that the person can believe in the resurrection. This was the case of Ola back in 2001. Practically EVERYTHING that she did that was under the power of a religious demon—a familiar spirit, a spirit of divination: preach, praise the Lord, prophecy, speak in tongues, discern spirits and see into the spirit world, was entirely counterfeited by the religious demon that resides in her. In the last 11 years, almost everyone who has sought  deliverance counseling has a similar background. The problem of false conversions is by far the most  pervasive and challenging issue of our times.

When you trace their alleged conversion to Christ back to the original source by skillful asking questions during the plowing stage of counseling, the source of the problem is almost always uncovered. For example, when some of my clients came to Christ, they came for the wrong reasons under strange/demonic circumstances. Religious demons “specialize.” There are some who want to do religious things, just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees of Jesus day.Remember the words of the Lord to them?” He said “You will tithe even something as small as a mint. Yet you are like whitewashed tombs, clean on the outside but filled with dead men’s bones. Your are of your Father, the devil. Vipers. A viper is a snake, the snake representing counterfeit religion.

Someone posed the following question to me in an email : if a person is operating off of only what they know and have been taught, won’t the Lord make an exception? Wouldn’t that be another “specific” example? In other words, if someone sincerely repents, loves the Lord, and accepts Him as their Savior, and they die before they have been TAUGHT and DISCIPLED, wouldn’t the Lord take that into consideration? Afterall, HE KNOWS THE HEARTS OF MEN, and we don’t, RIGHT?”

This is the exact situation that each and every one of my clients have found themselves in. The Lord has made an exception in each of their cases. He has seen to it that they DO NOT DIE before they have been un-deceived through counseling. Teaching and discipling is a part of the counseling process. The Lord has taken each client’s plight into consideration, by first opening my eyes and instructing me on how to recognize the deception, and how to counsel, teach and disciple him or her. Some have fallen under the category of II Cor 4:3,4: For if our gospel be hid or veiled, it is hid to those who are lost, whose minds the god of this world has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, which is the image of God, should shine on them. So I will have to cast out the religious demon first, BEFORE the client can be saved.

If I look at this problem from carnal eyes, then I could get discouraged. I can only handle 30 clients at a time and it takes from 3 months to a year per client. So I continue to train other ministers “to do what I do.”  I just don’t question God about what He is doing for these kinds of captives. I simply DO MY PART which seems so small that it appears non-existent when you consider how many professing Christians may have already been deceived. God does His part. For example, every one of my clients have had a dream that led them to me or they were surfing the web and found me.

People seeking Christ through the ministry of those who are preaching “another gospel” and presenting “another Jesus” in churches of all kinds and with folk who stay home and watch TBN are becoming mentally, spiritually and even physically bound. People are picking up religious demons at pentecostal altars, where they have been “tarrying” or “chanting” to receive the Holy Ghost and to speak with other tongues. Some clients ended up with absolutely no control over their bodies. Those I couldn’t help refused to even consider that they were not saved. Once the Pentecostals got a grip on them and they “manifested” the speaking in a tongues, they became super spiritual. Inch by inch, the demons took over. The demons spoke through several clients, using their bodies to do various things. .You can read more on this in my book “Faces of the Religious Demon.” Also in “The Church of the End-time Zombies

In a strange case of a client I call  “Carol.”

Carol  is unique because she is obedient, compliant, coherent and willing to do anything to be delivered, which was not the case with others. I see no real fault in her as I have seen in some of the others. She was simply watching TV, responded to a sinner’s prayer through a Mormon sponsored program, then began to feed off of the teachings of mega TV preachers and was guided to a mega church by a vision that was demonically inspired.

As it stands, I work with those that I can, and I plant a seed into those that I cannot help, and pray that the Lord will direct them to true, informed Christians who will nurture and water that seed. For those who refuse to hear,  I shake the dust from my feet and move on to the next captive.

Do You Know the Gospel? Can You Preach It?

23 Aug

True converts are born again by the seed that the Holy Spirit uses to bring forth new life in a spiritually dead sinner. It is through the gospel message that people are saved.

the seed that God uses to save a soul is the incorruptible seed in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

this is true preaching.

the seed that God used for me was preached through Cecil B. DeMille.

I have periodically been preaching to you. The people you know, whether or not they have had false conversions or no conversions at all, need to hear the true gospel.

so Can you now preach the true gospel that to those you know?

FOR 16 YEARS, I THOUGHT I WAS SAVED!

11 Aug

Hello, My name is Tee, and this is my story:

For the past 16 years, I had considered myself saved, born again, gone to church my whole life…the whole nine yards. But, throughout those years, I realized that I had continued to be entangled in my sins…For example, I even dibbled and dabbled into occult practices about 4 years ago…I had actually convinced myself that it was all from God! But yet, I was saved??? I also had trouble with keeping my flesh subdued in certain situations, particularly when I would become angry or upset. I practiced idolatry by putting other things before my relationship with God, and not living for God first…the list goes on. Sure, I was a “good person,” whose life on the outside reflected that I may have been a true Christian….I didn’t curse, get drunk, and pretty much lived a decent life…even primarily listened to Christian music, but yet something was STILL WRONG. On the outside, I “appeared” to live like a Christian, and I always loved God, and all things “good,” but I only had a “form of Godliness.” Little did I know, I was not really saved.

I had been on a quest for TRUTH since about 2006. I began to notice the problems with organized religion, and how it really got in the way of my relationship with God, and I left the organized church because I truly could not hear the Holy Spirit’s voice because religion and false doctrine preached in the churches kept getting in the way. Sure, I visited churches from time to time, but was never led by the Holy Spirit to a particular church. The Holy Spirit has been leading me to the truth the entire time. Now, still believing I was saved, I continued on, posting in facebook groups, sharing the truth I was learning, which was good, but because I believed I was saved at the time, I preached some error about salvation…error that included works…because that’s what I thought salvation was.  This occurred when I had preached to someone about salvation in one of the groups. I was preaching in error…much of it was my pride of letting the guy know I was, “right.” Now, I have always had a lot of knowledge about Biblical things, and the Holy Spirit allowed me to discern a lot, but I still WAS NOT SAVED. Bible knowledge DOES NOT SAVE YOU! NOR DOES BEING A “GOOD PERSON” OR HAVING A GENUINE LOVE FOR JESUS, OR DOING CERTAIN WORKS TO ATTAIN SALVATION.

Not long after that post, I started questioning my salvation because the Holy Spirit began to deal with me mainly about how my life did not reflect the Fruits of the Spirit. Sure, I preached about it, but my OWN LIFE DIDN’T REFLECT IT!!! Lol! I then sought out Pam Sheppard’s help, because I felt like I really needed help with sorting things out about my salvation. I met Pam through a mutual facebook friend, and I read about her unique story of how she was led to Christ. I also found out that she is a Christian Counselor who has a love for helping people. I identified with her story because the Holy Spirit had already spoken to me about what she had been saying in her videos, blogs, etc., and because she always preached about the True Gospel of Jesus Christ. Contrary to what I had believed, and what MOST churches taught about salvation, I knew I could not have been saved based on even the fact that no change occurred in me, and because of the false doctrine that was preached to me. . I talked with Pam Sheppard on June 26, 2012. This is what happened:

The way I knew I was saved for sure was that when I heard the Gospel…it hit me like NEVER before. I talked with Pam by phone on June 26, 2012, and she asked me whether or not I believed I was saved. I replied, “Possibly.” You see, I knew the Holy Spirit had already been working on me about that, and I had recently started realizing that something was just NOT RIGHT…I started thinking about how I don’t think I truly repented and became a new creation back when I thought I had gotten saved back in 1996. Then, Pam preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ to me, and I knew that there was no way that I was saved because I wasn’t certain based on the Gospel. I didn’t understand the depth of what had happened…I just had knowledge.

Throughout the day, the Holy Spirit began to convict me about who I was before him….he began to deal with me…I thought a lot my conversation with Pam…but it didn’t stop there…when I got on the computer that night, well early that morning…I pretty much stayed up all night…I watched Pam’s “False Conversions” video series  on youtube…all of’ em! I began to truly understand what had happened with Jesus…and the DEPTH of what had happened. I realized that I had some “knowledge,” but don’t think I truly BELIEVED the Gospel! Right then, it was like faith just entered in me, and I believed the depth of it all. Details of the gospel resonated with me. He then led me to Galatians 5:19-23….and I saw my sin before me…I didn’t really see my sinful nature until that point.

But the video, “False Conversion Part 2_the Resurrection,” that’s the one that hit home with me….namely, during the end where Pam describes his resurrection, using an example of a dead person coming back alive at their own  funeral; becoming alive again in their same body, but then she goes on to say, THIS IS RESURRECTION. Then she powerfully says, “I believe a DEAD man lives, his name is Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and he is GOD!!!!!” that, right there, JESUS CHRIST IS GOD HIMSELF IN THE FLESH…..resonated with me WOOO HOOO!!!!…I kept listening to that over and over again a few times…and I sat up and said, “Oh my goodness!” It never even occurred to me that I don’t think I really believed that JESUS CHRIST WAS GOD IN THE FLESH….just that part really helped me.  Also the fact that he CAME BACK TO LIFE IN HIS VERY SAME BODY, and got up, in the FLESH!!! I kind of knew that, but not to the depth I that come to know it this time, and I’m not sure if I really truly believed that either, before.  And, every time I heard Pam say that one sentence, my entire body would get a big huge chill…Not long after that, I couldn’t sleep, and something said, “Hosanna.” So, I immediately just took the computer in the bathroom, and listened to a you tube song that I know, called “Hosanna,” by Hillsong United.

That song really spoke to me. Right then and there I cried a lot, just blown away by the fact that he would even do all of that…for ME, and for that reason alone compels me to want to live for him. I’m just so grateful that GOD…would come in the form of flesh, live in the flesh, go through that horrible death, bearing all of MY sins that I didn’t even realize were there….I didn’t realize how much of a sinner I really am.. God could not fellowship with me because of who I was…because of my wickedness. It separated me from him. The life I had lived was NOT a death to my flesh, and he did all of that just so I can have a chance at salvation. That’s LOVE! I don’t know anybody on this earth who died, then came back to life in the VERY SAME BODY! That’s MIND BLOWING! At that point, I knew that there was no way I could ever live like that again…I cried a little more after the song went off…

I watched the video yet again, and in my entire body, from head to toe I got a big, for lack of a better word, “chill” over my ENTIRE BODY…. all over from HEAD TO TOE….it was like having the chills to the maximum extent, if that makes sense. And then I said, “Well I just heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ :o, ” and smiled. I sat there for a minute. Then, on the computer screen (on the you tube screen where I watched the music video) there were suggested videos of the cross on the right…so I clicked one of the videos, and just watched the crucifixion and cross. I think I watched 2 more music videos…and was reminded, yet again how Jesus overcame sin and death for me. All of those sins that have been just so EASY for me to commit ALL THE TIME….he bore them. There had to be a blood sacrifice for our sin because God cannot accept sin….he did the ULTIMATE thing. He was the ULTIMATE sacrifice…it should have been my blood, but he took my place. The day before, Pam had preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ to me…like I’ve never heard it before…and that changed me. I now know that I am a NEW CREATION…it’s a big difference. The Holy Spirit power within me keeps me from indulging in sin…and it convicts me at all times to keep me from sinning. It’s hard to explain…but the power of the Gospel does something to you…once you really hear it and come to believe and have faith in what happened.

I no longer wonder about my salvation. My eyes have been opened to the TRUTH. I will NEVER FORGET the power of God I experienced right in that moment on June 27, 2012 @ 4:42 a.m. I was joyful after sobbing over the fact that God did all of that just for ME…I just can’t live a life of sin anymore. I KNOW the Gospel of Jesus Christ now! Nobody can take that away from me! Everything happened real fast! lol When everything happened, I was like, “Huh?” I knew the Holy Spirit was in me when it happened…I recognized its presence. This is the part that is wild: THE HOLY SPIRIT ENTERED INTO ME, AND I RECOGNIZED ITS PRESENCE IMMEDIATELY. I KNEW IT WAS THE HOLY SPIRIT. You can’t believe the Gospel if you don’t understand it. You can’t understand it without it being properly preached to you. And without the understanding, you cannot be saved/ born again. But, religion, religious pride, and false doctrine blocks us from hearing the TRUE GOSPEL…happened to me for years.

Deliverance Depends Upon YOU…

2 Apr

Many in the organized church have their preconceived notions when it comes to deliverance.  They have been to this deliverance team and that deliverance ministry.  They have prayed this deliverance prayer from that website.  They have fasted and prayed and went to the altar hundreds of times, seeking deliverance.

Some have even began to trust in the teachings and doctrines of famous preachers on spiritual warfare and deliverance-even though over the test of time, it has been found that those very teachings and doctrines from those famous preachers have proven ineffective…in the long run.

Many have went to this conference that promises you to be ‘loosed’ and that conference on spiritual warfare….only to leave still dealing with the same demons.

I know.  I used to be one of the main ones…

That was until I began to wise up and realize that all of the prior ‘deliverance’ ministries, preachers, teachings, websites, books, CDs and DVDs, etc. weren’t working.

So I started digging into the Word of God for myself.  I started allowing the HOLY GHOST to lead me…and He led me to Sheppard’s Counseling Center.  Pam and her dedicated team of ministers helped me to ‘get my power back.’

This ministry is not for super spooky folks who are too proud to admit that years of erroneous religious indoctrination and brainwashing – even by the most famous of ministers and ministries – have been PROVEN to be ineffective.  Its not for people who hold onto prior pentecostal and charismatic dogmas like a pitbull, unwilling to even examine themseslves AND the whole movement to see if it and they are of God or not.  SCC is not for people who are too religious to be wrong.

If this describes you, SCC won’t help you.  There are some things GOD HIMSELF are going to have to show you.

But if you don’t care about none of that…and are willing to go for broke and lay down EVERYTHING you have ever THOUGHT and BEEN TAUGHT about deliverance…to be TRULY delivered….to TRULY get your power back…and to gain skills to MAINTAIN your deliverance, then give us a call at  518-477-5759.
