The Reality of a Babe in Christ

17 Mar

I recall Pastor Pam, of Pam Sheppard Ministries, saying that there is spiritual deception that can become a threat to a babe in Christ.

First of all, to become a babe in Christ, you will need to have a genuine born again experience, and not a false conversion.  If you have attended church all your life and proclaim yourself to be a Christian but you followed the easy believism that is being influenced around the world, or the “I accept Jesus” practice, consider that there is a big chance a genuine born again experience did not occur.

Pam Sheppard Ministries has a wealth of information on how to overturn a counterfeit birth experience. For a true salvation experience to happen, hearing the gospel properly is a must, as well as waiting for God’s call, and understanding the 3 R’s: Repentance, Rebirth and Resurrection.

In John 3: 1-8; Jesus is talking to Nicodemus about being born again in order to enter the Kingdom of God. Many times in scripture there is talk about birth, being born again, being children, being infants and babes. When you become truly born again in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you are a babe in Christ. Paul says this in 1 Corinthians 3: 1-3.

From the video above Pastor Pam Sheppard says:

When you’re a babe, you are being modeled after Christ, even though you are an adult.

Babes in Christ need spiritual nurturing, and a born again babe can be deceived. I was sent 3 dreams that sent me to a pastor and a church. Later I find out those dreams were from the enemy. Looking back, it was a dangerous place and Satan had a seat there. Everbody was sinning over and over again. The pastor I was led to was a closet homosexual and a strong practioner in witchcraft. Common sense told me to run, but I thought, they know more about this stuff than me, even though the Holy Spirit taught me different things, they know God more and better than me . But they didn’t. It was a sinful, deceived, and dangerous place. The church was in such evil hands. When I went back, a minister tried to seduce me. But I overcame all that.

Satan wants to deceive a babe in Christ. As soon as you become a babe, his goal is to take you down. Babes can become childlike and can lose their common sense. Before being a babe in Christ, I was a rough and tough atheist. I became childlike in a lot of ways when I was hardly childlike in those 33 years before becoming born again.”

Yet God was with Pastor Pam, protecting her all the time she was in the church.

Pastor Pam Sheppard said during a Bible Study:

The intent with Satan is to cause you to not be fruitful. His goal was to cause me to lose my salvation. The devil wanted to take me to a place where I would say:  I don’t believe in this anymore. The enemy comes with so many attacks. One of the things about maturing is recognizing the devils hands in innocent looking things.

As a babe, the church was used as a way try to take me down. I was a babe that had to grow up with the help of the Holy Ghost. Every human being needs a parent in the natural. We all need a parent in the spiritual too, but we sometimes don’t get it. I was an orphan. I am mature, but still growing.

During that Bible Study, Pastor Pam shared about a woman named Mother Britton:

Mother Britton first joined the church at the age of 65 years old. Nevertheless, she became the most committed, faithful church member. Over the decades, she attended every bible study and from time to time, i was one of her teachers. One day, I visited mother Britton in a nursing home when she was 103 years old. To my amazement. I uncovered that in spite of 40 years of faithful attendance in both Sunday School and bible study, Mother Britton did not UNDERSTAND THE RESURRECTION. It was June 25, 2004, that spending the day with her, I explained the resurrection to her and the Holy Spirit immediately caused her to be born again. Mother Britton, now a babe in Christ, died before she became 104.

In addition, in her video, When Divorce Is a Blessing to a Christian, Pastor Pam warns that babes in Christ must be careful choosing a mate:

When a babe, you can become very foolish and lose your common sense; in all things particularly in choosing a man or woman. Because now you want a Christian man or woman. As long as he or she says ‘I am born again, I believe on Jesus’, you take his or her word for it and assume that’s true. Whether you are in ministry or not, the enemy’s strategy is try to hook you up with the wrong person for life.

Babes in Christ need to know when to flee and avoid using the Bible against themselves, the wrong understanding of various scriptures, the enemy will use to keep them in bondage and captivity. Babes in bondage should realize that when Christ went to the cross to set us free, they are free indeed. A newborn Christian should be enlightened and strengthened not to allow a child, husband, mother, father, to put them in bondage when Christ died and was raised to get them free.

Church Genocide: The False Conversion Via the ” I Accept Jesus” Practice

12 Feb

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard

img_0985

Once the Lord opened my eyes to the false conversion epidemic more than a decade ago, the truth was so powerful and cumpelling  that I did not do any research as to whether or not other believers supported my claims–not until today.

I found an article entitled,  False Conversions and the “Sinner’s Prayer”: A Damnable Epidemic in the Modern Church! written by Landon Chapman on  9/ 9, 2014. I fully agree with almost the entire article, other than for the last sentence.  What stands out for me as complete truth is the excerpt quoted below:

Paul Washer has mentioned numerous times that he has “declared war” on the sinner’s prayer. He contends that it has sent more people to hell than anything else on the face of the earth. You may be asking, “how can he say such a thing?” The answer is quite similar to David Platt; search the scriptures and tell me where anyone evangelized that way. The scripture does not say that Jesus Christ came to the nation of Israel and said that the time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand, now who would like to ask me into their heart?! No, he said repent and believe the Gospel!
To further illustrate how ridiculous this has become in the evangelical church, I once heard a story told by an itinerant preacher about how he witnessed something he has never forgotten. He was at a service where there was an altar call and a man had come down to speak to one of the pastors. After a few minutes of chatting, the preacher asked if the man would like to pray and accept Jesus into his heart. Obviously uncomfortable and not fully on board, the preacher then said that he would pray the prayer for him and, if he agreed, to squeeze the pastor’s hand. This scene played out and the pastor proclaimed the man saved! To date, that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard! Do you think that man understood he was as sinner? Do you think that man understood that he’s not a good person and that he’s in dire need of a savior? How could he possibly know these things when no one ever told him! (Romans 10:14)
Do not make your evangelistic goal be for someone to recite the sinner’s prayer. Give the full picture of the Gospel which includes the Law. You’re not being a big meanie because you help someone to realize they are a sinner in need of a Savior. You’re actually loving that person enough to set aside your personal fear because you care for their soul.

The idolatry of decisionism. Men think they are going to Heaven because they have judged the sincerity of their own decision. When Paul came to the church in Corinth, he did not say to them, “Look, you’re not living like Christians so let’s go back to that one moment in your life when you prayed that prayer and see if you were sincere.” No, he said to test yourselves, examine yourselves to see if you’re in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. It is a work of God. The evidence of conversion is not just a measure of your sincerity at the moment of conversion, it is ongoing fruit in your life. Sixty to seventy percent of Americans claim they’re converted and yet we kill how many babies each day? While that’s incredibly harsh to hear it is not without merit.

Yet here is the problem.  At the close of this article, the author writes the following:

Do not let another day pass. Put your full faith and trust in our savior Jesus Christ and repent of your sins. Avoid becoming a false convert and join Him in paradise.

How do we put our full  faith and trust in the Lord and repent of our sins?  Is this not yet another decision that will lead to yet another false conversion?

Without the Holy Spirit, we can do nothing.  Anything the flesh does in a religious way will produce yet  another false conversion.  Furthermore, the message of “I accepted Christ” is so preposterous that it is an offense to the triune Godhead. We DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST. NO ONE CAN BE SAVED UNLESS GOD HIMSELF HAS ALREADY MADE THE CHOICE!!!! The Father and the Son have already done the choosing or the electing before the beginning of recorded time. (EPhesians. 1:1-10)

When the sinner actually hears the call, he simply responds. Even when a sinner cries out for Jesus, it may appear to be an act of his own free will, yet the Lord said that no man can come to Him unless the Father which sent Him draws them. (John 6:44)

Subsequently, even when a sinner begs the Lord for mercy to save him, he does so because he has been drawn to the cross by the Holy Ghost. Therefore, even our repentance is not human but godly. Godly sorrow is a repentance for sin that has been divinely given to the sinner to cause him to repent, to sorrow over the Lord’s sacrifice. At the cross, a sinner’s spirit is washed, cleansed and forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
When you “accepted” Jesus, you may not realize it but you lifted up self. Why? Because your boasting is made easy, every time you declare to others, “I ACCEPTED JESUS!” It is important to state here that nothing stops God, not even the church. When the Lord is ready for the elect, He calls them. If they are sitting on a church pew, He can still reach them, regardless of what they have been listening to. The problem is that many of the elect who are in church believe that they are already saved but they are not. The Father plans to save them. Nevertheless, for the Holy Ghost to draw them to a genuine salvation experience, the strong man must be bound with the light of truth. In this instance, the “strong man” is the religious demon, aka,the Fake Jesus. Why? Because you “accepted Jesus,” the fake Jesus answered you and accepted YOUR INVITATION to come into your heart chakra! That spirit needs to be cast out before God will cause you to repent.
The genocide of the institutional church has been deep, far-reaching in its destructive  effects. It’s difficult to resurrect the dead from the spiritual consequences of a false conversion. yet it is not Impossible.  If you want help, send an email to rescueonfb@icloud.com or call  888-818-1117.

Deliverance From Demons Involves Detox

20 Jan

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

From 90 days to 6 months, perhaps a year, the church addict’s mind must be re-trained. False doctrines and practices that the churchgoer has believed in for decades must be challenged so that the soul can be renewed. As God Himself has compared false worship to prostitution or whoredom , I am not out of line in making a similar comparison. A religious or spiritual addiction can be compared to “good sex” with someone you know does not really love you. Simply put, you get hooked to the thrill and the feeling. Those of us who have never “been there and done that” wonder what the thrill is for a masochist.” a quote from “Come out of Her God’s people)

Masochism from a psychiatric perspective is defined as a condition in which sexual gratification depends on suffering, physical pain and humiliation gained from despair, deprivation, and degradation. The perpetrator can be others or it can be self inflicted. Unfortunately, masochists are known to find pleasure in self denial and emotional pain.

I can relate on a spiritual level because sexual masochism is like self imposed martyrdom… I ignorantly assumed that I was suffering for Christ.” Notwithstanding, like a spiritual masochists, a sensual, carnal thrill was obtainable through believing that I was more righteous than they because I was faithfully doing God’s will. What a shock to find out after more than two decades, that “God never sent me there for ANY reason.” He simply used what the enemy meant for evil for my personal and spiritual good, so that I could be used by Him to help others “help themselves!” Nevertheless, as one who was “addicted,” I never wanted to leave that Whore on my own so God made HER PUT ME OUT!!!!”

The enemy is planning on using your ‘addiction’ to religion and churchianity against you in these endtimes. If you can’t come clean and effectively ‘detox’ , the enemy will keep a foothold in you. If you have ANYTHING in you that wants fame, fortune, popular acceptance, and approval, the enemy has yet another foothold in you. If you love attention, there is another one. If you love suffering, there is another one. if you love drama, there is another one.

Just know that the more you continue in your detox from religion, the more you pursue truth, the more you will realize that your journey will NOT be popular. When you leave your religion behind, you WILL lose friendships…THAT’S A FACT. Some may be more surprising than others. MOST people are not interested in TRUTH. MOST people worship their religion so deeply, that they have no desire or respect for the truth. They wanna hear what makes them feel good. You will find that you cannot share what you are learning with everyone in your life…not your parents, not your siblings, not your friends, and sometimes not even your spouse. Why? Because not everyone is READY for the truth, and quite frankly, not everyone is meant to know the truth. You cannot force it on a person. You cannot MAKE them believe you. You cannot make them see that the religion they are in is not of God, but instead a bunch of religious lies from the enemy. NO. You have got to leave that up to the Holy Ghost to open their eyes and show them. It is NOT your job to convince anyone of the truth.

Yet Pam Sheppard Ministries was enlisted by God to help and guide you on your detox journey with books, videos, articles, correspondence courses, telephone counseling, coaching and deliverance, group fellowship, bible studies, sermons and more!

Looking forward to hearing from you so call 888-818-1117, or complete the contact form below:

How to Witness To Religious Churchgoers: Who Are The Birds?

11 Jan

By Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

One of the reasons that makes  witnessing to churchgoers both difficult and unpleasant  is because  they have not yet heard from the Lord in a revelatory way.  Most of the religious  believe that if your argument is not bible-based, then it is not worth listening to.  So, a way to get through to them is using the scriptures in red.  In other words, “What did the Lord Jesus say?”  Use the Lord’s own words to reveal the truth to them.

The Lord  Jesus presented a group of kingdom of heaven parables, most of which He did not explain, but he left some clues. One of the clues as depicted in Matthew 13, is the birds. Therefore, when you’re keeping things very general, your focus is to  rely on what the Lord said, what the Lord shared. Consequently,  ask your religious churchgoer,” what do you think that parable means?”  Listen to what they say. You also  ask questions. First of all  Ask them, “what do the birds represent?”  They won’t know.  So remaining focused and patient, you highlight   the verse which most people know by taking him, her or them  to the parable of the mustard seed  that grew into a large tree.

The trunk of that tree is the Catholic church, and the branches of that tree that come out of that trunk are the plethora of Protestant denominations and non-­denominations that have been formed since the 1500’s. Protestantism  are the branches of that tree. There should be no argument that the tree is  the system of the Institutional Church. So in this context, you can also clarify that the Body of Christ is not the Institutional Church where believers gather together for Sunday morning worship. So it will be relatively easy  to distinguish the difference between the Body of Christ and the Institutional Church. It follows that  you should be able to get agreement that  the body of Christ consists of every born again person who ever lived, who’s living now, and who ever will live. Clearly,  the body of Christ and  the institution of church and religion are not the same.

Once these matters are clarified, then continue to interpret  the mustard seed  parable.  Next consider the birds, nestling in the branches. Now you can make the point  that the non-Catholic denominations have the devil as well as the Catholics.   The trunk is the Catholic church! The people who started the Protestant churches were  themselves  originally Catholics,  believers  who left Catholicism who started a whole new branch of religion. Your major point is this.   The Catholics are the trunk of the tree and  Protestants are the branches. . In the Protestants we have the denominations and the non-­denominations. Simple. Keep it simple.

Now, some believe  that the Catholic church is of God , but it’s the branches that spoiled things. Others believe  that God set up the branches , therefore  it’s the Catholic church that is demonic.  “Oh, forget about the Catholics, they’re all  about witchcraft, with their worshipping the saints and all that, they bigtime got the devil. But the denominations, I mean, these are the ones, this is the true church.” No. Make it plain that one comes out of the other. In fact, there is a movement going forth today to unite the Protestants back with the Catholics.

Then ask the question, ” who are the birds?”  THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!

Once  Jesus used a symbol, it makes sense that the symbol  will have a similar meaning when  He uses it again. In Matthew 13, known as the parable of the Sower,  the Lord is metaphorically discussing the reasons why some hearers of the word do not become  born again.  Jesus shared that the one who hears the word by the wayside do not become born again because the birds come and eat the seed.  Later on in that chapter, the Lord interprets His parable to the apostles, revealing that the birds are wicked beings. They are evil spirits: fallen angels and demons.

So, go back and look at the mustard seed parable concerning the birds in the branches of the institutional church system. Keeping things simple, if the birds were demons in the parable of the Sower , than Jesus is  giving us a clue that the birds up in the branches of the mustard seed parable are evil spirits  also. So if the birds up in the branches are demons. believe me, the Catholic church is also run by fallen angels. In other words, in His office as a Prophet,  the Lord revealed that Fallen angels and demons would one day be  in control of  the Institutional Church.

Perhaps you will be asked if you believe  God ever been involved with Institutional  Church? To answer this question  refer to the  first two or three chapters of the book of Revelation, where a message is sent from the Lord , not to the church, but to the angel of the church. Clearly,  God’s  angels play an important role in the operation of the Institutional Church, and seeing as it was a Roman emperor–Constantine— who started the Institutional Church in 313AD, it doesn’t take too much common sense to realize that the angels who are in control of the Institutional Church today are fallen, they’re not God’s angels.

From the book of Revelation, God’s angels were involved in the churches at  Ephesus, Smyrna, and Philadelphia.  For example,  point out that the Churches at Pergamos and Thyatira   reads a lot like the Catholic Church as Laodicea clearly represents the Protestant churches of  our times. So it would be beneficial if you spent with those seven letters.

Churchgoers, both traditional and charismatic tend to leap from topic to topic.  In this case, you must stay focused by making only a few points. .  The major point you should make is God’s relationship to the institutional church according to the words of Jesus in His parables and in the book of Revelation. The average committed churchgoer is going to defend THEIR local  church and their pastor, with defenses like  “oh, well my church doesn’t do what these charismatic churches do, they don’t ask for tithes, they don’t teach this, they don’t teach that.”

You have to point out that certainly there are righteous, sincere people in some of the churches, both pastors and laity. The question is “Do you want to be in a church that regardless of how committed and faithful the people seem, their organization is run by fallen angels and demons?”  The birds in the branches is the bottom-line to consider!  Until a religious, deceived person comes to the realization that Satan, the god of this world, is in control of their beloved church edifice and system , is it really safe to worship there?  The next question to address is “what about the plagues that the Lord mentions in Rev 18:4 when He warns “Come out of Her My People, less you partake of Her sins and receive of Her plagues.”

In fact, where are God’s people for the most part?  Let the churchgoer answer that question.   The very first place even an atheist will think of is “the Institutional Churches. “

This is all very simple.  The enemy keeps the confusion complicated so that churchgoers will protest with all kinds of explanations, rationalizations  and excuses for continuing to do what the Lord has warned them not to do.

To Oprah and Others: Psychic Power Is God’s Power Peverted!

18 Nov

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard

 

Today I was happy to see Oprah Winfrey  campaigning  for Stacey Abrams for Governor of Georgia.  Oprah is at her best uplifting  a political cause that is of the flesh and is not spiritual.  I could certainly relate to her statement “I am an independent woman!”   Right on, Sister  Oprah.   Urging people to vote independently is a good thing which I support. Uplifting all women in this hour is certainly  in season.

Yet I recall what the Lord said:  “That which is flesh IS flesh.  but that which is spirit is SPIRIT!” I wholeheartedly support Oprah’s views in the flesh as they relate to politics and women’s issues.  However her spiritual views are occult. I could even hear in her campaign speech her spiritual belief in ancestor worship. Christians should not forget that Oprah is deceived into embracing the new age’s teaching of Christ consciousness.  Here is the truth.   Psychic power   is God’s power, PERVERTED by the devil.  It’s  CONTAMINATED,  DECEPTIVE.  Christ consciousness is a devilish religion., DEADLY IN ITS CONSEQUENCES!

LET’S BRING THIS CONVERSATION directly to YOU! Are YOU one of those “spiritual people” who dreams about the future, “and it happens?” Do you think of yourself as a person with “second sight” or even a psychic?  Were you steeped in the occult and whatever the circumstances, you found yourself embracing Christ?  I can relate because I can personally answer each of these 3 questions in the affirmative myself.

After 41 years in the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I have learned a lot from my mistakes.  For even though He snatched me out of Satan’s hands on March 29, 1977, the enemy continued to pursue me, changing his tactics to religious deception, toward successfully causing me to assume that every supernatural message I received was from God. I was duped for 25 years!!!!

Having overcome deception, the most outstanding truth in my  warfare arsenal, is this.  If  prior to your embracing of Christianity,  you have had even the slightest background in new Age occultism, Eastern religions  or witchcraft,  YOU ARE A TARGET FOR DECEPTION.  Furthermore, if you have  accepted even one message from Satan as if it came from the Holy Spirit, you are a candidate for a deeper, more dangerous message in your near future. Be aware that the religious demon assigned to you will capitalize on your “psychic powers” as he deceives you with counterfeits of  the gifts of the Spirit.

If you are one who prefers to work on your own, I have written ebooks and developed courses from those books that will benefit you beyond measure.  If you would prefer the personal touch, call 888-818-1117 to set up a telephone session or complete the contact form below:

Witchcraft: A Work of the Flesh

8 Nov

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

If you EVER dabbled in the occult, then your personality is susceptible to witchcraft as a work of your flesh. What do you do with a work of the flesh? YOU CRUCIFY IT. Treat it like it is DEAD! You cannot cast out what is a part of your personality.

People Pleasing, the Flesh and Resisting the Devil

25 May

By Pastor Pam

Consider Jonah and his disobedience and sudden flight from God to a ship filled with men about to be shipwrecked because of Jonah’s folly. So to find out why they suddenly entered into a severe storm, the men on board cast lots and the lot fell to Jonah. Once Jonah was revealed, he confessed. You would have thought that the men would have immediately picked up Jonah and thrown him off of the ship. Instead, they tried to row faster. Yet when all human effort failed, they reluctantly threw Jonah overboard and peace immediately prevailed for them.

Why didn’t Jonah just jump overboard himself? Perhaps it was not physically possible and he needed someone to lift him up and cast him into the sea. My suspicion is that as it is in most cases, the people who are bringing storms into our lives are “all about self,” especially when their needs are being met by us.

However what I have learned by experience, is that once the cause of an attack has been uncovered or revealed to me, my next step is to refuse. Sometimes you have to refuse a condition or persuasion that is within your personality or in other words, a refusal may have to be made to your flesh.

For example, if you are a person that must be liked or approved of by others, you will have to refuse your flesh in this regard. If you can answer an emphatic “yes,” to the following statements as conditions of your own flesh, refusal will eventually be in order, if you are going to effectively resist the devil:

• I try to avoid being alone

• I let other people decide what to do.

• I get upset when people don’t include me in their activities;

• I am stressed if I don’t include other people in my plans;

• I am easily led;

• I hate any form of confrontation;

• I can’t stand being left out of things;

• I am emotionally dependent upon people.

So one way to crucify your flesh is by refusing to act out its nature.

Besides refusing your former nature without Christ, there are times when you also have to refuse your former perception or understanding as it relates to spiritual and religious matters. In fact, refusal is one of the ways that we cast down our imaginations, and every thought that is contrary to our obedience to the inner leadings of the Holy Ghost.

For example, if you have assumed that God would not allow the enemy to deceive you under any circumstances, to resist the devil that is assigned to you, you will have to refuse every thought connected to this false assumption. I personally know from experience that I can be deceived by the enemy because I have been, several times in fact.

Here is a personal example. It has been revealed to me that in 1996, I founded a church based upon the nature of my flesh and the leading of the religious demon assigned to me. Certainly, I believed that I was led by God at the time. However, with the discernment and the enlightenment that I have received over time, I can look back now with such understanding. What was confusing and complicated in 1996 is obvious and simple today.

Once my eyes were fully opened in 2008, I had to exercise refusal by closing the church doors. Certainly I had to face opposition to closing it. In fact, for a year, services continued in a members home, until her eyes were also opened and the doors of the church were permanently shut, never to open again.

As soon as I took the first step of refusal as I resisted the devil, the next revelation followed. Since the enemy was the secret force that led me to start this church in the first place, it logically and spiritually follows that each and every person who played a significant role in its operations was sent by the enemy also. In 13 years, several people were involved. Out of all of them, I have contact with two persons from the former church.

I published a e-book entitled Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry”.  If you have been in  bondage to people pleasing with deliverance workers who caused your spiritual and physical condition to worsen, you need this book.  If you have ever been in a deliverance session that lasted longer than 5 minutes, this book is for you.  If you have read a lot of books on deliverance ministry, this book will un-ravel the confusion and de-mystify how to cast out demons.

Charles Finney, False Doctrine and the Great Falling Away

20 Jan

   The great falling away has been occurring for about 200 years. In fact, it  has  already occurred in practically every church around the globe.  I   believe that it was  the traditional congregation’s invitation, of “opening the doors of the church,” that  ushered in  countless demons into the visible church system.  The  founding fathers of Methodism  instituted a superior practice of placing those who seek to escape the wrath that is to come  on a probationary  membership status. The Methodists were wise enough to not only create a procedure to  ensure a bona fide salvation but also to protect the church from fellowship with unbelievers.  However, over time, the full enforcement of this practice became ineffective, as people were brought into permanent church status without having manifested fruits of salvation.  I personally believe that when converts can demonstrate that they are truly disciples of the Lord, then we can fellowship with them as brethren, and not before.  It was never the Lord’s intention that the wheat and the tares would grow together in the church!

       Yet another open door to the religious demon is the coined spiritual phrases.  A  Christian idiom most frequently expressed is  “the Lord led me.”  In a book called “Unholy Devotion,” the author aptly warns of the danger of spiritualizing:

   At first glance the phrase sounds quite spiritual, but a close examination of Scripture reveals that it is not always biblical. On several occasions the phrase is used by or to describe false prophets or deceptive people. Jacob deceived his father by spiritualizing issues. Esau, Jacob’s brother, had just gone hunting. Too quickly, it seemed, Jacob, claiming to be Esau, brought the killed game to his father. “How did you find game so quickly?” Isaac asked. Having usurped Esau’s place, Jacob lied to his sick, blind father. But notice Jacob’s very ‘spiritual’ response: ‘The Lord your God gave me success.” (Gen 27:20) Jacob was playing dangerous games, spiritualizing in order to manipulate someone he knew would believe such words. Jacob wasn’t a false cult leader or prophet; he was God’s own chosen servant”.

Christians often think that the seeds of heresy are found only in cults and in off-beat sects of Christianity. But John, in his first letter, and Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, reminded us that heretical teachers are often found within the church itself. Jesus notes that the dormant seeds of heresy can be buried in the lawns of the church. In Matthew 13, Jesus tells a parable of the kingdom of heaven: The enemy sowed sees within this kingdom. In our desire to discover and understand the doctrines of cults, we may forget that potential gardens of heresy lie within our own walls. Remember: Sun Myung Moon was raised a Presbyterian; David Berg, founder of the Children of God, was once an Evangelical pastor; Jim Jones pastored a Christian church; many leaders in the People’s Temple and Jonestown were former members of Nazarene, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Methodist and Assemblies of God Churches.” 1 (HL Bussell, pg.111)

      Besides the altar call, the invitation to Christian discipleship, and the various professions of faith, there are  other  coined religious platitudes and phrases like “Jesus, come into my heart” and “I accepted Jesus into my life”  that  lead to  counterfeit births.   I myself have not been able to find any scriptures in the bible that suggest that we should ask Jesus to come into our hearts.   I believe that when the Lord says that we must abide in Him, He means that we must stay in Him without wavering, in other words,—- to continue, to dwell, to be present, to remain. This is the essence of the Greek word,  that was translated “abide” in John 15.  Accordingly, baring fruit in Christ is a manifestation of a believer continuing and remaining in Him.

Yet Satan’s plot against the organized church  actually took shape  under the ministry of a preacher called Charles Finney.

Charles Finney

Finney was quite a wicked looking man, as you can see the devil all up in his face. The man lived a long time when you consider that in his lifetime, the average live span was  from the late forties to about 65.  Finney lived to be 83, from 1792-1875. A fiery New York preacher, Finney’s impact on church traditions and practices has been  so profound, that his influence is still spreading globally almost two centuries later.  Finney’s notoriety is that he is the one who brought the entire church the “make a decision for Christ” through repeating the sinners prayer and the altar call.  A practicing freemason for 8 years, Finney eventually disavowed it.  Yet  freemasonry is witchcraft. And you just  don’t walk away from witchcraft without a struggle.

Anyway, in a nutshell,  Finney believed that human beings were capable of choosing whether they would be corrupt by nature or redeemed, referring to original sin as an “anti-scriptural and nonsensical dogma.”  In clear terms, Finney denied the notion that human beings possess a sinful nature. Therefore, if Adam leads us into sin,  he does so not by our inheriting his guilt and corruption, but by our  following his poor example. This position leads logically to the view of Christ as not having died for sins but for some lofty, moralistic reason.

Well, this was the man who started the altar call, invitation to Christian discipleship, “I accept Jesus,” practice that has led to the greatest falling away—the one that Paul himself predicted would transpire.  Consequently, due to Charles Finney, souls have probably not been saved within the organized church system for at least 150 years!!!! This doctrine has  primarily affected the Protestants much  more than the Catholics. A fallen angel called  Mother Mary had a different strategy for THEM. The “make a decision, I accept Jesus gospel” has so permeated all Protestant Church tradition, a problem that baptist preacher Paul Washer is diligently trying to correct, to no avail.  Washer is correct on this score but there  are errors in his teaching as well, which is yet “another story.”  Another practice that Finney started was to use the preacher’s invitation at the end of a sermon to evoke an emotional response, in other words to create a charged up atmosphere to manipulate a false conversion. So Finney also  opened the door wide to charismatic witchcraft.

Spiritual Warfare Defined

20 Jan

     The religious demon is both powerful and extremely clever. Nevertheless,  I believe that the revelations of spiritual warfare and deliverance in the book “Faces of the Religious Demon  attest to the greatest irony:  that even though man was created a little lower than the angels, that the triune God has  brought forth a fallen race of sons and daughters  who will obtain complete victory in the invisible war over spiritual entities  that have mighty powers.  In the words of the late Donald Grey Barnhouse:

 

   War has been declared. The great, governing cherub had become the malignant enemy. Our God was neither surprised nor astonished, for, of course, He knew before it happened that it would happen, and He had His perfect plan ready to put into effect. Although the Lord had the power to destroy Satan with a breath, He did not do so. It was as though an edict had been proclaimed in heaven: ‘We shall give this rebellion a thorough trial. We shall permit it to run its full course. The universe shall see what a creature, though he be the highest creature ever to spring from God’s Word, can do apart from Him. We shall watch this experiment, and permit the universe of creatures to watch it, during this brief interlude between eternity passed and eternity future called time. In it, the spirit of independence shall be allowed to expand to the utmost. And the wreck and ruin which shall result will demonstrate to the universe, and forever, that there is no life, no joy, no peace apart from a complete dependence upon the Most High God, Possessor of heaven and earth.”( The Invisible War, 1969) 2

 

    Even though our victory is assured, the Lord’s present day warriors within the remnant church should be prepared to fight in cold blood. (War on the Saints,, pg. 197-198, abridged edition) To fight in cold blood is to always be prepared to fight, both in season and out of season. Faces of the Religious Demon will  sufficiently opened your eyes to the reality that the true Bride of Christ is about to enter her season because  judgment has already begun within the household of faith. Therefore, we need to be able to recognize conflict that exists  within “a cold war.” During a cold war,  on the surface, it appears not to be any conflict.  Nevertheless, we must always be prepared to fight, even when a demonic attack  has diminished. Let’s face the facts.  Demonic onslaught  against the true church of Jesus Christ will not fully cease  until the Lord Himself returns to earth.

 

    I believe that  when the two-edged sword of judgement and punishment actually  falls on the harlot church and her hirelings, the spiritually damaged and captive sheep will have no  place to run but to those of His servants who have kept the faith by righteousness— believers who have not denied His name with idolatry.  Consequently, the Body of Christ is being prepared to be the spiritual hospital for those who have been abused by the traditional organized church. The primary battleground to restore the sheep is  of course within each individual  captive’s mind.  As the mind is renewed by the word of God, the deliverance worker or counselor or remnant “pastor” must also teach the sheep who have been damaged how to cast down imaginations and every high thought that would exalt itself above the knowledge of Christ, and to bring each thought into the captivity of the obedience of The Lord Jesus Christ. (II Corinthians 10:4,5)

Jesus Sananda Immanuel’s Slick Tactics to Create a False Church

12 Jan

The strategy to obtain channels and  followers of New Age occultism is relatively routine among the masquerading  fallen angels.They simply  cater to the work of the human  flesh that loves the supernatural.   Once they hook a follower,  religious spirits   never tell their  human targets  the dirty, down and dark  side of their real mission and purpose. Nor  do they reveal that they actually serve Satan.  Yet, not denying their god, they just switched a few letters around and refer to Satan as “Sanat” Kamura.   These so called “ascended masters”  lure and entice people to follow them either directly or indirectly—-authoring books through them and prospering their lives in material and soulish ways.  Channels are attracted to and  lured by the positive side of the message based upon  the desires of their own hearts.  And since the human heart is deceitfully or secretively wicked, these human channels have not been difficult targets for deception  by high level fallen  whose commander-in-chief is Satan.

Clearly, with professing Christians who serve and worship the true Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the only begotten Son of God, Sananda and his evil troops and human helpers were forced to  resort to  deception. Their strategy is to employ counterfeit manifestations of the spirit  so as to  infiltrate  the minds of professing Christians to accept  false practices, false doctrine and the deceptions of  false prophets. Even though Sananda  is the  chief fallen angel  that imitate the Son of God,   other demons “ascended masters” play  a part in what they refer to as “the Christ consciousness.” Imitation of Jesus Christ of Nazareth by Sananda and the others is  either with or  without the cross or without the resurrection or at times, even without BOTH.

For example, through several channels, Sananda basically reports  that at the cross,  he was not dead but comatose and that the other Ascended Masters revived him and he fled to India.  No surprise. The  Fake Jesus defies the resurrection. The demon Sananda was certainly at the cross invisibly, yet  not on the cross physically,  As Sananda mocked Jesus  with the rest of the demons–the ones whom King David prophesied as “the bulls of Bashan,” (Psalm 22) but at the cross, Sananda was merely a disembodied demon.  The results of  our study have shed light on why  so many churchgoers  have not understood the bodily resurrection of the Only Begotten Son of God. They have been unknowingly worshipping the fake Jesus, Sananda Immanuel–the one who denies the Lord’s bodily resurrection.

As one manifestation of the Fake Jesus, Sananda’s influence  is more apparent among the Mormons, Roman and Independent Catholics, the Christian Scientists,  the 7th Day Adventists,   the Jehovah Witnesses, and other so-called Christians that have changed the word of God, some of them “ever so slightly.”  Each of these allegedly Christian sects have perverted  the gospel in one way or another.  However,   this  “imposter god” has also drawn  out followers through the preaching of the prosperity message,  “a millionnaire Jesus.” “Name it and claim it” is also a Sananda influence.  We are gods with a small “g” is straight up Sananda. Kingdom theology. Peace and unity.  Let’s take the kingdom and put our foot on the devil.   In other words, word of faith, non-denominational Charismatics and Pentecostals  have more subtlely changed  the nature and character of Jesus Christ of Nazareth with their “new doctrines”  and their  neglecting to preach the meaning of the cross and the Lord’s  bodily resurrection.

Consequently, it could very well be that  there are very few bona-fide Christians who have not come under Sananda’s influence, more or less.  Those who came to know Jesus Christ through the organized church have come to know the Jesus of their understanding, embraced him, fallen in love with his compassion, his suffering, his goodness, his mercy, his peace, his power to heal etc.  Countless of them  became devoted followers of the Jesus of their understanding.   However, without an understanding of the Lord’s bodily  resurrection and the true meaning of the cross, neither the devoted believer nor the hypocrite is  saved.   The expression  “He rose from the dead” has become  meaningless, religious  verbage,–a  lifeless “tag on” to the cross.  Without an understanding of the BODILY resurrection of the Lord, the Apostle Paul warned the Corinthian believers that their faith was vain and they were still in their sins.” (I cor 15;17) If any of them were still in their sins, then all of their speaking in tongues and other supernatural manifestations were not of God.  If they were not of God, then they were of the enemy. Below is an excerpt from the book “New Idolatry’ concerning  yet another clever way the enemy used to infiltrate the organized church:

        Several  Masonic defectors have exposed the deeper things of freemasonry in various books and articles. From a personal perspective, the denomination I served  was  overrun with freemasons of the Prince Hall Lodge in high leadership positions in  both the pulpits and the pews.  In fact,  if you trace the history of most denominations you will find freemasons among its founders.  In “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” and “Faces of the Religious Demon,” I expose the ramifications of the infiltration of freemasonry in the African American church and the backlash of destructive plagues that have overtaken the family members of ministers and laity who are freemasons.  Cisco Wheeler, a  former freemason within  the Illuminati, has exposed the secret agenda for church membership.  In a transcribed radio interview, Cisco chillingly uncovered how by becoming part of the church as  an ordained minister, a leader of youth groups, and a friend and associate to church elders and the board of directors of Pentecostal churches, her father spread freemasonry into the churches. Cisco’s words are chilling:

“In the late forties, the Illuminati wanted to infiltrate the churches because they understood the power of God within the structure of the church, and they had to find a way to infiltrate the church to break down that spiritual strength within the church, the power of the Holy Spirit that works within the church.  They (the Illuminati) had to find a way to infiltrate that, and they wanted to bring the world into the churches so that the churches wouldn’t be so strong spiritually.  That was part of my father’s job.  In order to do that, my father married my mother who was not Illuminati, but she had a very strong religious background.  My mother was that perfect example for the world, that perfect wife for the church to set examples for other young women in the church.  When my father married her, that was his way to infiltrate the church through my mother.”[1]

     With Cisco Wheeler’s father as only one freemason among perhaps  thousands or even millions brainwashed with the same mindset of church infiltration through marriage to a Christian woman, it is interesting that idolatry obtained a foothold in the church by the late 40’s.  Similarly,  it was in the late 40’s that alien encounters became a matter of public and governmental attention, dealt with in more substance in Chapter  7.
