Be Set Free From Apostolic Teaching

7 Jan

 by Ola Cruz

The Apostolic doctrine teaches that Christ can’t return to earth until Christians form a militant army which will be led by “ Super Apostles”. These super apostles and prophets are supposedly going to physically subdue the earth and set up God’s kingdom within the earth’s government. Bishop Bill Hamon and Peter Wagner have concocted these hair brained apostolic doctrinal errors and teachings of devils. Those who push this apostolic doctrine believe that God’s end-time army will arise, subdue the earth, bring on natural disasters with their super powers, and correct church government. They claim to have authority over pastors and churches and want to be recognized as such.

Everything they teach is unscriptural and pompous. Their pride has them believing that Christ needs them to assist Him in returning to earth. Their pride has them believing that God needs help. As far as I can see, what they are really teaching undermines and diminishes the power of God. In fact, they believe God is powerless without their input. If God is powerless without the input of these super apostles, then the super apostles must be God. What do you say?

If you are part of this apostolic doctrine, you’ve been duped and hoodwinked into placing yourself  ABOVE GOD. The apostolic doctrine is yet another doctrine of the damned. Get out while you can!

I write this article with sorrow. Yesterday, I asked Pam Sheppard about the apostolic doctrine and what it entailed. I see a lot of Facebook folk tooting the apostolic horn and placing the word ” apostle ” in front of their name. Pam gave me two names to research which were Bishop Bill Hamon and Peter Wagner. My friends, I was almost sorry I asked. As far as Pam Sheppard’s Ministries is concerned, God is finished with the organized church, and all Pam’s ministers have ” come out from among them”. Why was I sorry I asked Pam about the apostolic doctrine? I was sorry I asked because as I began to research this damnable apostolic doctrine, I felt like I had entered the devils” doctrinal error twilight zone ” of top-level heresy.

I wouldn’t even advise you to enter that zone and do your own research on the apostolic doctrine. Take it from me, the book you should read is The New Idolatry by Pamela Sheppard. I used to be like you. You may feel fed up with church and you don’t want to give anybody a chance to fool you again. Well, dear reader, the devil is crafty. Take that chance and read the book! I could stop here and give you a 100 point list of why I believe Pam Sheppard IS THE LORD’S END -TIME SHEPHERD But I won’t. You need to check the spirit for yourself. I really would like you to be sure for yourself . Be prepared for the undiluted truth of the Gospel! Go here for your very own copy:

Evil Spirits Need the Altered State

12 Nov

THE ALTERED STATE IS A HYPNOTIC TRANCE

Among my faithful Facebook friends is a cadre of serious believers who
continually share YouTube video clips, blogtalkradio programs, and various
articles that dramatically portray how the enemy has infiltrated the Christian
community with a variety of occult, even blasphemous doctrines and practices.
To name but a few, the list is long: the Joel’s Army movement is at the top of
the list because it encompasses It ALL!!

Then there is  yoga, the kundalini spirit, TM, people running around the church  looking like they are literally on fire, alien encounters, astral travel, slain in the spirit, the laughter and dancing movements, (I refuse to call them ‘holy’), tongue prayer
languages,—the list seems almost endless. In fact, even  charismatic
sermonizing has caused people to become hysterical, breaking loose in church aisles, appearing to have lost their minds.

Yet, there are even stranger things going  on that are a lot less public.  As
an example, in my Christian telephone counseling practice of 10 years, I have
come in contact with Christians from around the world  who are
constantly “hearing voices” yet they are not mentally ill.  In 10 years, I have
been in contact with lots of churchgoers.  Among them are people who thought that they were saved, but after careful consideration, they ultimately admitted that they were not—yet—they  had spoken  in tongues and had often submitted themselves to falling slain in the spirit in various charismatic churches.

Ministers laid  hands on  many of them to receive what is colloquially known as “an impartation.” When they began to be tormented in one way or the other, most of them sought help from deliverance ministries, yet their condition worsened.  In fact, 75% of  my Christian client contacts  were hearing voices when they telephoned me for help—all of them were active and faithful church members. Some of them I could help, some of them, I could not, for one reason or another.

One thing that all of these strange happenings have in common is the altered
state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.”  With that ONE
common denominator,
I decided to “investigate” by examining a plethora
of occult websites, to see what devils and demons  were openly revealing to
their faithful followers.  In other words, “I spied out the land.”  I figured
that even though Satan and his troops lie to their followers, they might reveal
something to them  that they persevere to hide from true followers of Jesus
Christ of Nazareth.  Believe me, it was a disgusting and dangerous assignment , so I do not recommend others do what I did.  The blasphemy against the Lord is horrendous and those who are weak in faith might be victimized, even indoctrinated.

As a result of a year’s work, I believe that I have uncovered Satan’s overall
agenda which ties into why the altered state of consciousness—the trance– plays such  a pivotal role in bringing about what the Anti-Christ intends  to do.  I have
written about this subject in 4 of my 6 books:  Faces of the Religious Demon, the Fake Jesus, Come Out of Her God’s People, and the New Idolatry.  However, if you are not into Christian non-fiction, then here it is in a nutshell:
The devils and demons have told their followers that “the World Master” plans to introduce himself to all mankind through what appears to be telepathic communication.  Therefore, these spirit entities have been feverishly working in our times to cause people to be able to enter into a trance–an ASC—so that the voice of the Anti-Christ can be heard.

With occult followers, it is an easy thing to do because they willingly put
themselves into trances by meditation, yoga, chanting, channeling, astral
travel, drugs, etc. With the people in the world, they enter into trances
through sex, drugs, movies, etc.   So the enemy had to devise ways to open
doorways in Christians so that “we too will be able to hear the voice of the
Anti-Christ.”  Satan is seeking for mankind to lose themselves in an altered
state of consciousness so as to provide an open doorway for demons to “walk in” when the time is right.

What I learned on the occult websites is that the Anti-Christ is going to
attempt to  pull a global stunt  where EVERYONE hears the voice of a stranger, saying the exact same thing at the exact same time.  In this way, the son of perdition intends to prove “that he is God” because he will appear to be both omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent–manifesting the qualities of God Almighty.  However, the only ones who will be able to hear his voice, will be those who have been opened to “the trance.”

I was once, one of those people.  In the 70’s, I was a psychic medium.  An
opened door to it ALL OF IT.  Once I got saved on March 29,1977, all
occult doorways were shut down.
  However, in 1982,  I reopened them by heeding to the doctrines and the practices of the charismatic movement.  For 25 years, I heard from religious demons, mostly in dreams and sometimes audibly, believing that I was hearing from the Holy Ghost.  When the Lord opened my blind eyes to the truth, I shut down ALL of it: tongues, slain in the spirit, the laughter, the travail in the spirit—I MEAN ALL OF IT.   I put up a spiritual blockade over my mind at night,  that protects me from remembering what demons try to tell me in dreams.  When God speaks to me now, I don’t feel ANYTHING. I simply “know things.”  After a day or so I realize, “Oh, the Holy Ghost was here.  Imagine that!”
Why fallen angels and evil spirits need the  altered state and Satan’s endtime agenda is laid out in  the book, “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” Here is a brief excerpt:

Fallen angels stand by, patiently watching and waiting for their churchgoing prey to allow themselves to be induced into an altered state of consciousness by “any means necessary.” One they spot an opening, the religious angels seize the opportunity.  The most classic example is that of Alice Bailey, the infamous founder of present day occultism.  A churchgoing woman, Bailey is actually the founder of what is known today as “the occult.”  Most startling is that Alice Bailey began as a Sunday School Teacher in a Presbyterian church.

Casting Out Demons Doesn’t Save Anyone!

6 Nov

Your captivity is more about YOU than it is about DEMONS.

Casting Out Demons Does Not Save Anyone By Pam Sheppard

The bible warns us to “be not many masters, for ours is the greater condemnation.”In other words, “Don’t rush in where fools ought not to tread.” Or “something like that.’  At least, take heed of the worldly proverb which says, “don’t bite off more than you can chew or else you will choke,” if you get my drift.  The bible also reveals  through the prophet David, that man was made “lower than the angels.”Oh, he got THAT right.”

Only ONE human being—the God/man of the universe— has power over angels, both divine ones and evil ones.  His name is Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  When we have faith in Him, then when we confront devils, they must obey us,—not because of USbut because of Him!!!
 So I warn the so-called “Army of God,”  the Dominionists, the Manifest Sons of God, the army of the locusts or “The New Breed,”—by whatever handle they are using at the moment.   If you are out of step with the Lord, then don’t expect that the Holy Ghost will protect you from Satan’s army.  Since the major belief among you is that as a  special “Superman type” you are  going to overcome the devil, just know that Satan is laughing at you. When the enemy comes out against you, without the backup of the Holy Ghost,  hopefully you will NOT be dealt with more harshly than were the sons of Sceva.

Until you’ve been standing “toe to toe” with the enemy, you haven’t a clue of what devils and demons can do to you. After 30 years in ministry—25 of those years in deliverance—, I speak from experience.  When God finally  “un-deceived” me, He politely informed me that “He didn’t call me into deliverance ministry.”

So since I knew that I didn’t “call myself,” THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER CHOICE.  I didn’t have to be a Rocket Scientist to figure out that “the devil called me into deliverance ministry.”  Simple logic told me that if the devil called me into deliverance ministry, then “the enemy is in FULL control, the author and the finisher of it.” 

I have had many “encounters” with the enemy in what is called “deliverance ministry.” I have watched  all of  the pre-staged shows, the “charades,” and even the circuses, where demons play games and cough,vomit,convulse, whine, growl, talk,  roll, prophecy, and hiss like snakes. The foolish then believe that because “demons manifested,” the captive is now free.

WRONG! I have stood flabbergasted, as a demon picked up a crippled person OUT OF A WHEELCHAIR—one of our ministers, Ola Cruz. Ola is  a young woman   who has never walked on her own.  Yet,  a fallen angel picked her up and  mobilized  her to walk down a long aisle toward me in what I call “the Frankenstein stroll”, screaming the F word, bellowing in a Dracula-type voice,  blaspheming and trying to hit one of those present in the head with a bible.  Three religious demons were cast out of her at that time  but she did not get saved until 2007. Besides Minister Nydia, I have only met a handful of people who had a false conversion whom God has saved.

The reality is that casting out demons is just the beginning of freedom. Complete freedom can only be obtained when a captive is able to receive the total truth about self, God and the ways of the enemy that trapped him or her off in the first place.

Demons are like actors who far excel over the master Houdini’s of this world. They can imitate any human voice, appear in a mirage as any  human being, and they communicate with each other by telepathy. !!! Whatever you see with your human or even your spiritual eye is “not what you see!!!”   Like movie stars, they like to put on a show.  They particularly like to mock Christians.   So be careful, New Breed!  Even your  “generals” like Todd Bentley haven’t a clue.   You can not  “take back what the enemy has stolen,” because the enemy has stolen YOU!” That’s right!  Joel’s Army is working for Satan!  Get a grip, people!!!  Come out from under Satan by resisting pride.  Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and admit that you are in gross error.

Once I got wise and realized that the enemy is in control of deliverance ministry and  any movement that uses the term “spiritual warfare,”  I put on the brakes. 

So how did I defeat Satan’s personal agenda against me?

First, I reclaimed my commonsense and learned how to try the spirits.  Throughout,  I stayed at the cross of Calvary!  I resisted personal pride by allowing the Holy Ghost to break me. Therefore, I lost all ambition to be anyone special. It just LEFT!!!  Nothing IN me desires to be a part of Joel’s army as I have been stripped of personal ambition. I no longer seek the help of mega preachers to mentor or embrace my ministry.  In fact, I no longer have “a ministry.”  I no longer stand behind any pulpits nor do I answer to any man’s authority.  Even though man has ordained me and I remain in good standing with my credentials, I no longer submit myself to the approval  of men. I will not be
called, “pastor” any longer, or “Rev” any longer.  When people call me by those titles, with tact, I correct them.

I have ONE General.  Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

I walk by faith and not by supernatural signs and wonders.  One of my practices is to quickly   admit when I am wrong. I not  only acknowledge my error without rancor, but I also make immediate changes.  When, after 25 years,  God said to me, ” If you stay in that denomination, I will not be able to use you.  But let them put you out,”  I did just that and in 9 months, I was “outta there!”  When I found error in one of my 6 books, I tried to  immediately take it off of the market.  When that failed, I no longer market it. When the Lord revealed that the enemy had taken over my church, I shut down a church that I loved–a storefront church that  I had founded 12 years previously.  Whatever God shows me, I DO ACCORDINGLY– once I have tried the spirits and I am assured that it is HIM.

  As a result, God has been  impressed with my meekness and  my obedience.  Realizing how truly powerless I actually am, I am constantly shocked when  the Lord honors my prayers. As I write this,   I perceive that I have entered  into  the secret place of the Most High and that  I abide in His shadow. I  stay in His shadow, because, unlike “the New Breed,” I know full well that the devil is exceedingly more powerful than me, in my own strength.  I  also realize that “this is the enemy’s hour,” given to Him by God Himself.  So I understand my boundaries.  I don’t fret, fear, nor am I sad, nor do I say things, like, “Oh, my heart hurts so bad for God’s people.”  I just keep ready and alert for the moment when I perceive that ONE of God’s people has been prepared to be “un-deceived.”  Then I do what “God has called me to do.”

Therefore, the Lord’s  burden is light to me.  As one who continues to cast out devils,  I no longer struggle with them—not even for 5 minutes— once I have uncovered their presence!  I simply  give the command and the Holy Ghost backs me up.  Since I have humbled myself and perceived that in truth, I am nothing where the power of the enemy is concerned,  demons cannot stand before me when  the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is in my mouth.  I have real faith in His Name.  You cannot have faith in His name if you don’t live a life of repentance or if you don’t understand His bodily resurrection.

Consequently, it is a dangerous thing to use the rhetoric that I hear in the mouths of those who call themselves frontline warriors, locusts, the new breed, etc. You cannot stomp on the enemy or pull the devil’s teeth.  You are not “the violent who take the kingdom by force” for you have already “been taken.”
