Exposing Fallen Angels

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.

I OWE MY MINISTRY TO A WOMAN OF GOD, JESSIE PENN LEWIS.

17 Oct

My online  ministry has been birthed through vision. In 1990, I knew nothing about the Internet.  One night I  dreamt that I was flying with the Holy Ghost over the city.  Looking down I saw a 12 mile line of people, stretching down the highway from Albany to Selkirk. The Spirit said “Pam, do you see that line down there? You are going to minister to  every one of those people.”  “Where?” I asked.  He pointed to a little house and said “from there.” To the east.  Over the years, I wondered how I  could minister to  so many people in one lifetime in that little house.  It would have to take a lifetime and perhaps a large staff.  Only in recent years have I  understood the humor of the Holy Ghost.  Today, the Internet is called the Highway, and when we use “the Highway” we are “on line!” I now live in that little place in the east.  Shortly after I had begun to work with captives on line in December 2002, that the Holy Ghost spoke again.  I was working on the computer in 2003 when  I heard Him whisper, “Pam, look, you are now “on line” on the Super Internet Highway.

I have really been walking by faith, out here “on line.” Nine years ago, I really didn’t have a clue. Now I have a sense of what the mission is.  I am to prepare the remnant church for endtime events.  A part of that preparation is to train ministers that the Lord has called to the remnant harvest field. Every bit of work that I do also connects to unveiling the deception perpetrated by fallen angels and demons. Only second to preaching the gospel in His Great Commission, the Lord Jesus Christ  instructed His disciples to go forth and cast out demons in His Name by the power of the Holy Ghost. (Mark 16:17)  In the Lord’s day and time, this was a rather simple instruction. 

During His ministry, Jesus did not have to teach, defend or explain the existence of the unseen world because the people   grasped the reality of demons without difficulty.  In fact,   both natural and   spiritual discernment of evil spirits was commonplace.  For example, when a  woman of Canaan came to Jesus on behalf of her daughter,  He did not have to convince or persuade her  that her daughter was demonized. This  Canaanite mother was certainly not ignorant as she cried out  to Jesus “my daughter is severely vexed with a devil.”  It is obvious from the scripture that she understood  what demonic oppression entailed. (Matthew 15:2)

 Yet, almost two thousand years later, the ignorance of bible toting people of God concerning the powers of darkness has caused my books and my deliverance mentoring model   to be both vital and necessary. In truth,  Satan has been extremely successful over the centuries to not only keep the church in the dark about himself and his devices, but the religious demon  has actually been able to manipulate the organized church to even  promote Satan’s sinister agenda.    

Almost one hundred years ago, Jessie Penn-Lewis, in collaboration with Evangelist Evan Roberts wrote a life-saving and life changing book entitled “War on the Saints.” As indicated in my dedication, this book has no competition or comparison.   Simply put, the pain of opening my blind eyes to how the religious demon had deceived me palled to the astounding  joy that truth brings.   “War on the Saints”  literally set me free, equipped me to serve. On October 25, 1911, I will have been in ministry for 30 years.  It was all a training ground for what is about to transpire very soon.

I hope my books do the same in this hour.  If my books help you, it was because of a woman who died in 1915 yet still lives today through her astounding, life changing books. Without Jessie, I would still be imprisoned in a denomination, pastoring cold, dull, lifeless pew warmers.
