“However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
There are some statements & questions Jesus has said or asked that I have struggled with for years. I want to focus on this question during this Easter weekend as millions of Christians around the world celebrate the death, burial & Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I grew up in the catholic church where I was initially introduced to Jesus. He was a partially naked man wearing a crown of thorns on his head, he seemed dead as he hang lifeless on the cross.
Catholic recitals & traditional prayers gave me more information on this Jesus. He was a redeemer & the one you ask forgiveness from because he died to cleanse us from our sins. But there was a catch, he could only forgive us through the help of Mary, the Father or the angels. Some samples of the prayers went like this
I know my sins have wounded Thy Tender Heart,
O My Savior, let me be freed from the bonds of evil through
the most bitter Passion of My Redeemer. Amen.
…O my God, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary
[kiss your Scapular)I offer Thee the Precious
Blood of Jesus from all the altars throughout the world…
O JESUS, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers,
O MOST MERCIFUL JESUS, lover of souls,
I beseech Thee, by the agony of Thy most Sacred Heart,
and by the sorrows of Thine Immaculate Mother,
wash clean in the Thy Blood the sinners of the whole world
who are to die this day
The Jesus I learnt about wasn’t sovereign & above influence, he was a God who got his feelings hurt if I sinned, he needed help to redeem people and had to work in collaboration with almost everyone to just redeem one individual.
I had to perform a lot of confessions as well, as God was almost angry all the time, I had to engage in church practices to soothe him & continually recite prayers to Mary to calm him down. In the process I got stressed and developed OCD tendencies such as repeating menial tasks.
In my teen years, I moved to the Protestant church and met a different Jesus, this one loved more and was easier to get along with. After inviting him into my heart and feeling sensations of love moving in my chest, I felt loved for the first time. I’ve since learnt that love is not a feeling, its in action but that’s another topic.
Feeling that I had finally met the real Jesus, I settled in church and became active in prayer meetings, choir practice, intercessors group etc. I came to find out almost immediately that this Jesus was worse than the one in the catholic church. The demonic attacks started from inappropriate sexual thoughts about Jesus. Hindsight is 20/20 because as I look back, those thoughts distressed me greatly, I never enjoyed them so how could they have come from me? Demons were projecting these thoughts into my mind & they had the right to my mind since I said the sinners prayers and let them in.
I analyze this Jesus I was worshiping and things don’t add up:-
How can someone who lived in Palestine in the 1st century have pale skin, blue eyes? am not claiming Jesus as black either but lets be real here and put our pride aside, something that is hard to do as all races engage in some form of racial pride. But for those who seek truth, you should ask yourself where did this image come from & does it match the people who lived in that area, at that time.
How can a redeemer need help to save you? He either has the power to redeem you or he doesn’t, this is not a team effort where everyone needs to chip in. The teaching of Jesus having a co-redeemer in Mary and other people is a false teaching.
He also asks to be invited into your heart, and that is dangerous as much as it seems simple. Demons can only enter your life when you give them the right to be there, so they trick many to let them in by masquerading as God. Jesus never said anything about entering our hearts. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father and not entering hearts, an imposter is doing that.
Jesus rose up from the dead victoriously defeating sin & death for his chosen people, yet the Institutional church talks about him continually crying and hurting over our sins. How? Jesus said the gates of hell will not prevail on his church & his church is not the institutional church but the believers from the 1st century to now.
When I joined RESCUE, Pastor Pam armed me with information that delivered me from the fake Jesus and gave me healing in my mind from all the assault I went through in the catholic & protestant churches. All those years in the institutional church and I didn’t even know the real Jesus!!
I was worshiping the fake Jesus and the rotten fruits were evident – lack of spiritual growth, not understanding the bible, demonic attacks, mental deterioration to name a few.
When you see the mega churches, crusades where millions go forward & accept Jesus, Christian TV, you can think wow! The church of Jesus is growing but which Jesus because there are many. I think Jesus was giving a clue in that question as well. Don’t be fooled by anything labeled “christian” or “Jesus”
As we celebrate the death & Resurrection of Jesus during this weekend, lets be sober and question long held beliefs & one of the questions is which Jesus are you worshiping?
For those who don’t even know where to start, get a copy of the Fake Jesus, this book was the beginning of my own deliverance and helped me get to know the real Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

“Most religious people have never experienced true repentance. Why? Because they continually judge and condemn themselves on a regular. Most people are already convinced in their minds that they are sinners. They reason in their minds “well, yeah, I have sinned, but so has the next guy and when I look around at others, my sins are nothing compared to his, so I believe I’m going to heaven because I am not that bad.” On the other hand, godly sorrow is a deeply emotional experience where the sinner is brought face to face with his own inner darkness. It is the dark time of the soul. It is no longer a comparison to the “next guy.” It becomes “it’s me Lord—and compared to You, I am a wretched being, a poor excuse of humanity. My heart cries out to You to save me.”
Furthermore, religious folk are always looking to DO something about their sinful nature. To “dress up” their sin with prayer, fasting, confessions and and the like is a part of the works thing. They have been taught that repentance that leads to salvation is turning away from sin, a change of mind.
This may be the case AFTER we are saved, but not BEFORE.
The dark time of the soul is when the Holy Ghost confronts us with our inborn evil that we can do nothing about other than grab on for dear life to the One who became sin so that we could become the righteousness of God in Him. it is a time of the cross.
To be born again, We must see our darkness from God’s perspective before we can appreciate how Jesus has translated us out of darkness into light.
After 37 years, I can remember very vividly how I myself experienced the dark time of my own soul. I was a confident, highminded person who thought very well of herself. After all, I had obtained a masters degree four years before, doubling my salary as a result. I had great ego strength when the Lord showed me my personal darkness. The poorness of spirit that I felt was indescribable. However, it led to a godly sorrow of repentance that brought forth the fruit of a rebirth that was equally indescribable as the Holy Ghost entered my spirit and I was marvelously saved.
If those of you who are waiting on God ever experience the dark time of your soul for too long, then just know that it was not God. Such a time is something that happens quickly, and it turns from you to the cross. You get a sense of what The Lord did on the cross FOR YOU!!!
What follows it is a washing, cleansing, forgiveness, joy—a freedom that is beyond description. And you will never experience it like that again. You may struggle over sin after you are saved, simply because you want to do what you KNOWS is not of God, and you may weep. This is what is called CONVICTION. Yet as soon as you confess your sin to Him and determine to be righteous, the conviction immediately leaves.
So be warned that if you stay stuck in grief over your sin and can’t seem to break free, then it is a religious demon and you have to fight it off of you. if you are unsaved, contact me. if you are saved, then put on your breastplate of righteousness.”

One thing I have really disliked about religion (well, there are many, but I will focus on this one! lol), is that being religious makes a person become something they are not. You all know what I am talking about. There is just this certain way people become when they turn religious…even in the way they speak.The religious practices and rules make us feel like we have to do certain things, and act a certain way to be accepted by God, be righteous, or “get into heaven.” It’s like a switch turns on for them to act a certain way when the subject of God or Jesus comes up. All of a sudden, they know all the righteous things to do and say. Interesting…
I do not miss the long, drawn out, religious prayers, that are nothing but FLUFF, leading people to believe that they have attained a certain righteousness with these deep prayers. I remember going to all-night prayers. I HATED them. Why? Because people would use all these religious terms, trying to sound all holy, instead of just talking to God (or who they thought was God) like they talk to a regular person. The constant, “Father Gods,” or the “Oh, Almighty God,” religious sayings after every sentence drove me CRAZY!!!! I am the type of person who just talks normal when I pray. I don’t see a point in saying all this religious stuff to try and impress God. I’m sure he will hear my prayers if I just talk to him, like a normal human being.
Then there’s the “acts of worship” people put on as they suddenly hear a religious song, or get in an atmosphere of falling into an altered state, thinking they are worshiping God. To me, worship is in EVERYTHING I do for God, it’s my life…not just some religious state I get in when I hear a religious song or something. When I was in the IC, I felt something was a bit odd how a certain song will come on, and people would suddenly CHANGE.
Then, there’s the constant referral to scripture for everything you say, as if quoting Bible verses makes you more spiritual than others, or closer to God. I used to be in discussions where I had to have a scripture to back up everything I was saying.
Let’s not forget the SERMONIZING..the religious, on cue rise and fall of a preacher’s voice, just to get a huge reaction from his/her audience.
While I was in the church, I hated the bondage. I suspected something was just not right with having to follow all these rules, and do certain works to transform myself into become this IMAGE of what a “christian” is supposed to be. I yearned to just be REAL. To be FREE. To be NORMAL. Religion took that away from me, and made me this person who would put on a form of Godliness in any situation related to church, God, Jesus, etc.
Today, I can happily say that I am FREE from all of that. I don’t need to say religious lingo to talk to God. I don’t need to act a different way, just because spiritual topics are being brought up in a conversation. I don’t have to suddenly go into this altered state of worship, to try to feel close to God. I don’t have to talk a certain way, citing Bible verses everywhere I go, trying to appear righteous. I’m just ME…Learning truth, living my truth, and being REAL. No fake religious mess. And you know what? God still accepted ME. Just the way I am. Finally, I do not have to live a life of being fake, engaging in religious works, just to feel that I am close to God. No more religious songs, no more religious facebook groups (of God knows WHO is really saved in there), no more pressure to go to church to “earn” or “maintain” my salvation, no more feeling like I have to sound a certain way in prayer, no more listening to pointless sermons, that have nothing to do with the truth, but rather a point the preacher wants to get across, no more saying “grace” before meals, as if something is wrong if I DON’T say grace. I know that GOD IS NOT IN ANY OF THAT. RELIGION IS MAN’S INVENTION OF WHAT THEY CONSIDER TO BE THE PATH TO GOD, INSPIRED BY THE DEVIL. IT IS COUNTERFEIT. IT IS NOT REAL. IT IS A FORM OF GODLINESS THAT DENIES THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST. I NO LONGER STRUGGLE WITH MY IDENTITY BECAUSE OF RELIGION. I KNOW WHO I AM, AND AM HAPPY I HAVE THE FREEDOM IN CHRIST TO BE ME, AND NOT SOMETHING RELIGION HAS CREATED ME TO BE.
IF YOU HAVE ANY RELIGION IN YOU, LET IT GO. YOU WON’T FIND GOD THAT WAY. JUST STOP BEING RELIGIOUS, AND START ANEW. GET OUTTA JAIL, AND BE FREE. Learn who God REALLY is, and maintain YOUR IDENTITY.
Has religion taken away YOUR identity and you need help putting your life back together? If so, we can help. Contact Rescue at 518-477-5759 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is an interesting quote from a blog called Detox From Church For Real, as it pertains to those who have left the
institution called “church.”
“If you’re not careful, keep harping on what’s wrong with church can become YOUR religion. An obsession. An addiction as real as that to crack cocaine…Keeping your spirit’clean’ also means turning away from that which poisons you, that takes you back to that place of being wounded by churchianity. I don’t see recovering drug addicts going back to the crack houses…trying to ‘save’ those who are caught up in the drug scene. SO what’s with religious folks trying to ‘save’ the lost and misguided, the bamboozled, the deceived in church?vThat’s NOT your job anyways…THAT IS THE JOB OF THE HOLY GHOST.” (Wenona Russ)
In ministry while in a denomination for 25 years, I was once one of the wounded, so I personally know the truth of this quote. When the Bishop manipulated the leadership council to remove my name from the membership rolls back in 2004, even though I had been shown by God what would happen nine months before the deed was done, I was still both hurt, bitter and angry. The truth is that when you focus on individuals and not the religiously political system that my enemies represented, bitterness and even outrage will naturally surface. I took out my rage on them in a book, where I changed names but I identified the denomination. I re-wrote the book a few years later, with a new title “Come Out of Her God’s People,” and without identifying the specific church. BT,.I no longer market the original. You see, once a critic stated that I sounded “bitter,” I realized that my literary articulation was being negatively affected by the outrage that I thought I had successfully suppressed.
The truth is that I had allowed “looking back” at their scandals to tarnish my own soul. I have purposed in my heart to refuse to allow any person, place, thing or entity to shape, or even slightly influence the essence of who I am according to who God created me to be. .
Once the Lord revealed to me the deep truth as to why I was rejected by church leaders, I never again looked back at them or their SCANDALS.
You see, there was and I expect continues to be much SCANDAL in this particular sect—so much so that I am reminded of the TV series that bears the same name.
In this regard, as a former pastor among them, I once knew of loads of COVERED UP denominational scandals among the religious white- washed tombs of the persevering hypocrites. So watching the politicians cover-up of scandals on the TV series reminded me of the games religious folk play.
At first, like everyone else, you look at the individual characters to make an assessment as to who is to blame, who is at fault. With the TV series, you wonder if it is the President or his monstrous Chief of Staff! Or is it his power-hungry First Lady, or perhaps the head of the secret agency called B613? In my “church situation,” , I first looked at the people involved in trying to bring me down in the church. There were three of them.
On the TV series, when you begin to watch each character lie, plot, scheme, manipulate, and even murder, I noticed that at the heart of their behavior is their yet naive attempt to be the good guys, wearing the white hat. The characters are able to live with their mess because they can still rationalize that they did their best to protect the republic. So with all of their political tactics, you have to ask yourself “well! who is the republic?”
And this is the institutional church. . Both politics and religion use the same tactics. Religious folk” kill off” other churchfolk because they believe they are protecting their territory within the IC. Therefore, it is understandable that both politics and religion have their part to play as Mystery Babylon.
Consider the IC.
By any means necessary, whether a famous mega preacher or the choir director or trustee of a 50 member church, the goal is the same. To protect the IC, which like the republic is a non-human entity. A system. A religious system.
The reality is that the problems and SCANDALS of the IC have been built into Her system for the last 17 centuries. so there is no one in the IC today who is really the originator of any of her present circumstances.
Olivia Pope had an interesting revelation about the republic. As the re-election campaign manager for the sitting President, she came to realize that it really did not matter who wins. All three candidates committed murder. The democrat committed a premeditated murder of his wife’s lover, the independent killed her closet gay husband in a fit of rage and covered it up, and the incumbent President killed a dying woman who was about to release a damnable secret to the press!
In other words, ALL THREE CANDIDATES ARE MURDERERS!!!!!
Upon this realization, Olivia got yet another revelation. Working for the republic at any cost changes who you are because through passivity, you lose yourself. Engulfed in darkness, you can no longer stand in the sun.
Herein lies what happens in the IC. Each individual loses him or herself trying to sustain Her. When a member or a pastor become a target of destruction in the denomination I was ordained in, the expression was “the Bishop or the Council killed him or killed her. When a church scandal has been covered up, the devil comes in and takes over.
That is why, rather than spend my energy bashing Her, I focus on restoring individuals who desire freedom from Her. Seeking freedom? Check out RESCUE at www.aboutrescue.com or call 518-477-5759
What are some other reasons why it is fruitless to continue to look back at HER to expose, criticize or blame?
Well, If she were alive, I know of someone who can answer the question by her own personal experience. God warned those He led out of two decadent cities not to look back at what He was destroying. For to look back is a sign that you want to GO back.
Let Lot’s wife warn YOU from her pillar of salt.
Today is the feast that is known as Pentecost Sunday, celebrated 50 days after the Passover. In many congregations today, many pastors will preach on what is called ‘the baptism of the Holy Ghost.’
We all know about the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2.
For centuries, we have been taught that the Holy Ghost-or rather, a sign that one has it-is if they speak in tongues. This is where the phrase ‘received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in tongues’ was initiated.
In Acts 1:8, Jesus Christ promises the disciples that they shall receive power after the Holy Ghost comes upon them, to become witnesses.
And we have taken that and ran with it. We have led millions of people to believe that the Holy Ghost was the manifestation that took place on the Day of Pentecost, instead of teaching people the PURPOSE OF THE HOLY GHOST.
We got caught up in the power aspect of it all, that we have negated the TRUE power of the Holy Ghost by relegating it to a mere fleshly manifestation. Or should I say manifestations.
This is how the enemy has been able to trick many into settling for the manifestations instead of holding out for the real thing…the FRUIT.
The greek word for power in Acts 1:8 is ‘dynamis,’ which means ‘moral power and excellence of soul; potential to do what is right; inherent power, strength; the ability or enabling to do what could not be done before empowerment.’
We have heard charismatics call it ‘dunamis’ power, when that is not the correct spelling-or definition-of the actual greek word used here. This was intentional-to get people focused on the signs and wonders aspect of power-the physical manifestations that tantalize and excite the flesh….and sway people away from focusing on the FRUIT.
We need to remember one thing; the enemy has always wanted POWER. And since power belongs to God, lucifer has to steal it, or fool the recipients of power out of their power. The power the enemy wants to steal from people is NOT the power to raise the dead, or heal the sick, or to do miraculous signs and wonders. He already got that. The devil can perform miracles, fake deliverances, preach, prophesy, dance, speak in tongues…he has been practicing his magical bag of tricks to fool the religious and sign seekers for generations….it started when Moses was before Pharaoh and Pharaoh had his magicians mimic every sign God wrought through the hands of Moses. The only way the enemy was exposed was when what God wrought devoured the lies and tricks of the enemy.
The way that the SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD devours the works of the enemy today is by exposing the enemy for who and what he really is.
The enemy wants YOUR power to do what is right. Every time someone who claims salvation gives in to sin, the enemy has gained ground-or stolen-a little more of the power GOD gave to you.
‘Ye shall receive power…’
Many are going to preach this today. Many are gonna get hands laid on them at altars today. Many are going to speak in tongues today. Many are going to go through fake deliverance today. A lot of dancing and shouting will go forth, and many will conclude it was all God.
And this whole fiasco that is going on today in many churches will grieve the Holy Ghost…
But watch these same people next week….and we will see if they indeed received ‘power.’
I want to share the following from my mentor, Pamela Sheppard.
Grieving the Holy Ghost
By Pam Sheppard
The Holy Ghost has been reduced to what charismatics, Pentecostals and word of faithers call “the anointing.” To most of this crowd, the Holy Ghost is “an it” that causes them to have goosebumps as they fall out slain in the spirit, speak in a language that no one can understand, and “get drunk in the spirit.” However, He is so much more than that.
- DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY GHOST!
As a Person and not “a feeling,” the Holy Ghost speaks, teaches, witnesses, guides, comforts, convicts, commands, helps, converts, imparts faith to believe, brings the fear of the Lord and imparts godly sorrow to help a sinner repent. He can be obeyed, lied to, resisted, grieved, quenched, quenched, insulted and blasphemed. The work of the Holy Spirit on earth is similar to that of the Lord’s earthly ministry. As Jesus lived to lift up and glorify the Father, the Holy Spirit’s work centers on lifting up the Son of God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The Father also glorifies the Son. The Holy Ghost is the Spirit of Christ and the Spirit of the Father. All three Persons are One. As our Teacher of spiritual truths, the Holy Spirit will enlighten your mind with insights into the mind of Christ as He unlocks the spiritual doorways to the secret things of God.
Just as the Holy Ghost drove Jesus into the wilderness to do battle with the devil, He does the same with the elect of God. The Holy Ghost not only wants you to know the godhead. He wants you to know your enemy and so He will arrange your wilderness experience, tailor-made to what you need to find out. He knows that it is crucial that you be not ignorant to demonic deception, for the demons have access to our very souls.
Therefore, it is imperative that we learn how to tell the difference between what is spiritual, what is demonic and what is soulish or carnal. The Holy Ghost is the Helper and as such, He provides us with self-knowledge as long as we don’t grieve Him. Self knowledge equips us to be able to discern thoughts and feelings that are alien to our character and personality. Demons love to snare their prey with half-truths rather than with complete lies because a half truth can set a more believable trap. You say to yourself, if this is true, then THAT must be true, and then you are trapped. This is the scheme that is the foundation of all false religions. There is at least ONE truth about God in all of them, perhaps more.
Nevertheless, 99% of truth is no truth at all. It is a lie. The Holy Ghost is 100 percent truth and there are no lies in Him. 99% of truth is a setup from the devil. Since our human struggle with the evil side of the spirit world is a daily event, and since Jesus revealed that the Holy Ghost is 100 percent truth, we need to resist grieving Him. For Jesus said that the Holy Ghost will reveal truth as to what is to come. In the times in which we live, we are helpless without the Holy Ghost.
How do we grieve the Holy Ghost? Well, when we actually believe that WE lead people to Jesus Christ, we grieve the Holy Ghost. All we do is preach and testify, as led by the Holy Ghost to do so. The Holy Ghost does the rest. He knows who will be saved from who will be damned. He is the one who dispatches angels to set up our wilderness experiences that He will use to draw us to the cross. He is the one who provides faith to believe on the Son of God and His bodily resurrection. You might call the Holy Ghost “THE MINISTER OF SALVATION.” So He is certainly grieved when we take the credit for our own salvation when we boast “I ACCEPTED Jesus.” He is more than grieved with this. He is angry. Perhaps that is why religious demons have been allowed to enter those who have said “Jesus, come into my heart.”
- When He is grieved, He is also quenched. A fire is quenched when dirt is thrown on it. The organized church has thrown lots of dirt on the Holy Ghost and perhaps that is why He left Her.
- The Holy Ghost is also grieved when He is reduced to a flesh experience. He is a Spirit. We must worship God in spirit and in truth and not by a sensation on our flesh. The Holy Ghost imparts the truth by which we worship God Almighty.
- The Holy Ghost is grieved when professing Christians bypass the Son of God and seek the Father to be saved. He is quite grieved with that.
- The Holy Ghost is grieved by those who do not try the spirits to see if they be of Him. He will let you be deceived until you do.
Resurrection life—the same power the Holy Ghost used to raise the Lord from the dead—will be evident when you experience revelation, power, and discernment under the guidance and instruction of the Holy Ghost. Revelation is to receive God’s own personal knowledge and wisdom about YOUR life. Power is His supernatural ability applied to YOUR human frailty. We cannot do without the resurrection life of the Holy Ghost in times like these.
So to conclude, I can safely say the the SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD is tired of people celebrating Pentecost Sunday.
How can I say that?
Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
God is no longer impressed by people who have solemn assemblies, saying they are worshipping Him, when their hearts are far from Him
Look what He says in verse 16…
Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
THIS is what the POWER of the Holy Ghost is supposed to do!
Give us power to be cleansed, to put away evil, to cease to do evil.
If what you are getting at your altars is not empowering you to do this, giving you wisdom…then you have no real power at all.
So my question remains…have you REALLY received POWER?
Do you desire more accurate teaching on not just the Holy Ghost, but on other spiritual matters pertaining to the Kingdom of God?
Are you noticing a disturbing trend among believers for accepting false doctrine, impure doctrine, and are in search of more truths?
In an attempt to purify your walk with Christ Jesus, have you distanced yourself from the organized church system, in search for more of God?
There is a place of refuge, fellowship and empowerment for you!
The Remnant Exodus Society has been developed to help those who are either no longer attending church or feel strongly led to come out of the organized church system, in search for more of God.

Not much needs to be said here….
Pamela Sheppard spent decades in ministry…so she knows what she is talking about. And I applaud her for TELLING IT LIKE IT IS and setting a generation of women stuck in these marriages FREE!
I was one of them who ALMOST fell for it…but GOD BLOCKED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And now…THIS is what its all been for…what’s it has been leading up to. The enemy has had this agenda on the board for a LONG time.
And now the stage is being set. These turned out preachers are advising the PLUTO!
These preachers are FALSE PROPHETS…that are being led NOT BY THE Spirit of God, but by the ENEMY!
This is what led me to write my book earlier this year, ‘The Makings of False Prophet.’
It is an attempt to warn preachers when they are on the brink of falling away from God.
It is also a warning to the Ekklesia on how to mark the beginnings of a false prophet. The signs are not always that recognizable right away.
In this hour, we need to know who is real, and who is false. I encourage you to get not only my book, but go to the Endtime eBook Library and get Pamela Sheppard’s books as well. She shares a WEALTH of knowledge, wisdom and understanding that will help the CALLED OUT ONES in this last hour!
By Pamela Sheppard
It was this video clip that birthed the book “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.” I’m not sure, but I suspect the year was 2006. I had recently heard a voice say to me that the entire organized church was akin to a condemned, boarded up dwelling and that the Holy Ghost had vacated it. As a pastor for 25 years at the time, I was truly hoping that the message I had received was not from God. So I decided to take a year and do some research. I was about to begin by studying church history, when I watched this particular video.
At that point, I had never heard of Dr. Cindy Trimm so I watched the video without any preconceived perceptions of her ministry.
When the clip reached the 2 minute and 42 second point, my book “the Fake Jesus” was conceived, for it was at that exact moment that I heard Dr. Trimm “declare,” I THANK YOU FATHER THAT THE SPIRIT OF THE ASHTAR HAS FALLEN UPON THE PEOPLE as the people were falling slain in the spirit like ocean waves across the entire building where the congregation was assembled.
Astar? That sounded familiar. I first went to my bible and found Ashtoreth, an old testament idol. Once I googled the name “Astar,” Google corrected my spelling to ASHTAR. Beyond a doubt, I was in a state of shock. For the door to aliens, ascended masters, and fallen angels imitating our Lord flung wide open. All because of the 2:42 slide of this video.
You heard it here first!
I know out of all the deliverance ministries, deliverance sessions, exorcisms, etc. that you have sought out trying to get free, you have NEVER heard the truth about DELIVERANCE told like this.
I encourage ANYONE who is seeking deliverance to purchase Pamela Sheppard’s book ‘Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry.’
What you THOUGHT was a deliverance ministry was nothing more than a gateway to your soul set by the enemy to gain a stronghold in your life.
Don’t beat yourself up; we in the pentecostal and charismatic…even non demoninational churches have ALL been there, done that.
People are truly destroyed for the LACK of knowledge. What you DON’T know about these deliverance ministries out here CAN kill you!
Arm yourself with knowledge…and purchase your copy TODAY!

For the past few days, the Lord has been dealing with me heavily about Ishmaels. Those things that we tend to birth thru our flesh b/c we find it SO hard to wait on the Lord.
It is in the nature of a woman-in particular-to want to birth a thing. Men, too. But for different reasons: women love the idea of birthing something, anything, b/c it makes them feel more productive. It gives her a sense of purpose and fulfillment unlike any other thing a woman can do. This is why there are teenage pregnancies and what not…that girl wants something to love, to cherish, to nurture, to bring up…b/c it gives her a sense of PURPOSE. Something to love.
So whether she is ready or prepared for it or not, she gets pregnant.
As it is in the natural, so it is in the SPIRIT.
A female wants to feel like she can nurture something. So she will hook herself up with someone who SHE KNOWS is not of God b/c she feels like she is anointed enough, powerful enough, on it in the Spirit enough to nurture and love that thing to perfection! Whether it be a ministry, a husband, a child, a business…whatever.
ILLEGITIMATE BIRTHS in the spirit….
For the man, a man gets a sense of accomplishment when he procreates. He is made to feel like he is virile, powerful, and EVERY man wants a seed in the earth that will outlast him. God created the man like that….that desire to procreate IS a godly thing….God PUT that in the man.
The problem arises when the man is OUTSIDE OF THE WILL OF GOD…and yet still wants to procreate.
It is when a man is not ready for the responsibility when the problem arises….
As it is in the natural, so it is in the spirit….
A man who knows he is anointed by God, but IS NOT READY for ministry will seek illegitimate means to support his ministry. He will go thru great lengths-most of them ungodly ones-to ‘birth’ a ministry.
The following are some thoughts God dropped in my spirit regarding ILLEGITIMATE BIRTHS….
“That devil KNOWS a MAN and another MAN cannot reproduce, and that IS the #1 agenda of the enemy. To reproduce after HIS OWN KIND…
So whether it presents itself in the form of a homosexual or a partner in ministry, that spirit will SEEK OUT THE WOMB-whether natural OR spiritual-of A WOMAN so that it can properly reproduce after its own kind!!!!! LADIES, BEWARE!!!!! When a man seeks out a woman to ‘help out in the ministry…’ He knows he cannot do anything-i.e., have a baby, have a well rounded ministry, a legitimate one-without the natural OR spiritual womb OF A WOMAN. BE PRAYERFUL!”
“And Im NOT just talking about PHYSICAL reproduction-Im talking about SPIRITUAL reproduction as well! Why do you think all these illegitimate ministries are being birthed? Illegal, illegitimate spiritual intercourse & impartation, conception – then birthing!”
“It started with illegitimate STIMULATION-they flatter you telling you how anointed you are, they want to take you under their wings to cultivate the anointing in you-as if THEY harvested the anointing themselves! ILLEGITIMATE STIMULATION!”
“Some so called ‘men of God’ will link up with you NOT for the $$$, ur anointing, legitimacy in ministry, etc, but b/c they want to have a child with you!”
“OH LORD! I know Im gonna get it for this. But I am about to EXPOSE that devil and ALL his plots and schemes! A couple got married-a ‘man of God’ and a lady I know, and when I heard about it, the spirit of the Lord told me ‘he is only marrying her to have a child with her….’ I was like WHOA!!!! Didn’t give it a 2nd thought!”
“You see, ladies, what we’re dealing with IS A SPIRIT. And this spirit mimics the Spirit of GOD. Just like God wants us to ‘be fruitful and multiply,’ so does this evil spirit seek to ‘be fruitful & multiply!’ Some of these so called men of God KNOW they are on their way to a burning hell, and want a ‘seed’ in the earth to continue the mission that they are on. One case in point is that HOMOSEXUAL spirit. We all get up in arms about how the homosexual agenda is spreading like wildfire thru every aspect of society. Well, this is why same sex marriages are becoming legalized. This is why now it is easier for a same sex couple to adopt than it EVER was. But ALSO there are HOMOSEXUALS that are actually procreating with women to re-populate the earth with MORE homosexuals. YES, ITS TRUE!”
Nothing but FALSE CONVERSIONS in the spirit!
“You say, how is that possible? Well, think about it: look in the church. It seems like there are MORE homosexual leaders now more than ever…but they came from SOMEWHERE! The likes of James Cleveland and Walter Hawkins and others in the church married, procreated with women, and birthed a whole new species of gay and lesbian offspring. So all these ppl who are struggling with their sexuality were birthed from corrupted seed, undelivered seed. And NO ONE in the church confronted the sin. Our grandparents and parents KNEW this was going on in the church! But NO ONE dealt with it. And sin that is not dealt with GROWS. Look at what happened to the artist formerly known as Tonex. He was molested by those in church as a child-IN AN APOSTOLIC CHURCH! And NO ONE dealt with it. But now everyone wants to bash him…YET NO ONE tried to help him when he was a child. They just let this stuff continue in the church…”
“LADIES: YOU ARE THE ENTRYWAY-THE LEGAL ENTRYWAY-INTO THIS EARTH REALM! ANYTHING THAT IS BIRTHED IN THIS REALM HAS TO COME THRU UR LOINS! WATCH WHO U ALLOW TO FERTILIZE UR EGGS! SPIRITUAL AND NATURAL!!!!!!! B/C WHAT U BIRTH COULD BE OF THE DEVIL!!!!!!”
“JUST LIKE CHRIST-THE MESSIAH OF THE WORLD-HAD TO COME THRU THE WOMB OF A WOMAN, THE ANTICHRIST AND EVERY SPIRIT ATTACHED TO IT HAS TO COME THRU THE LOINS OF A WOMAN!”
“The enemy will constantly seek to birth thru ur womb, spiritual or natural seed. Ministries. Children-natural and spiritual. Businesses. ANYTHING! PROTECT UR ANOINTING!”
“In this society, childbearing and having kids has become idolized…hence, all these shows showing women in the delivery room and what not. Folks are actually worshipping the act of childbearing. And religious folks or spiritually blind folks cannot see what the enemy is doing….he is shutting the wombs of the righteous by getting the righteous to procreate with the ‘sons of men.’ NOT the sons of GOD! So every birth of a child is supposed to be blessed,according to the religious. But those of us who are spiritual know better. Do yall remember that movie ‘The Omen?’ There are some children who GOD did NOT ordain to be here…the DEVIL did. The devil seeks to procreate JUST like GOD does. That is one thing the enemy covets, possibly even more than the anointing he once had! So now since he see he cannot get the anointing back, he seeks a legal entryway into the earth realm BY WAY OF THE WOMB OF A WOMAN! That way the position and assignment THAT DEMON cannot fulfill, HIS CHILD WILL! MY GOD! GRASP THIS IN THE SPIRIT!”

Now, I will say this: the birthing of a GOD GIVEN, GOD ORDAINED thing, whether it be a ministry, a child, a marriage, a business, a dream, a vision, etc…whatever it is….IS NOT A BAD THING! The Word of God says the people PERISH w/o a vision!
But when u start getting into birthing things that GOD DID NOT SAY TO BIRTH, you are going off into dangerous, rebellious territory. B/c WHATEVER is not BORN OF GOD IS BORN OF THE DEVIL!!!!! NO MATTER WHAT IT IS!!!!!!
The desire to birth a thing falls into sin when GOD DID NOT TELL YOU TO DO IT. Period.
The best protection against this deception is to be LED BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD!!!!! Learn to hear from the Lord for yourself. HE WILL let you know if He is pleased with what ur doing or not!
I don’t care if the most popular of preachers encourage you to do it. I have heard such preachers as TD Jakes, Juanita Bynum and Cindy Trimm talk of birthing things…in the Spirit. I have heard of them speaking of spiritual stimulation and impartation. This is nothing more than sensual, soulish, and even demonic and should NOT be entertained! It does not matter WHO teaches it, if it cannot be supported by scripture or goes AGAINST it, it must be refuted.
There are so many Ishmaels running around today…Ishmaelite ministries, marriages, literal Ishmael children! Its tight, but ITS RIGHT! Things and people GOD did not ordain to be in the earth.
Now, its not to say Ishmael is not, won’t be, blessed. Of course, they will. BUT they will be blessed, empowered-eventually-to go AGAINST the Spirit of God and the will and plan of God. It was not, IS NOT, the will of God that we have to deal with the Iraqi war. Look at all the ppl who have died as a result of this war. Why? B/c 1000s of years ago, Abraham couldn’t WAIT ON THE LORD for His promise…he had ‘to help God out.’
Now, God is still God. He is still on the throne. He will grant victory. BUT LOOK AT WHAT COST!
Had Abraham kept his pants on-if he had any-there would be no war over there right now. 9-11 would have never happened!
When the sons of men slept with the women after the flood….they created giants (Ishmaels) who terrorized the land. Much sin was wrought in the earth. I honestly believe THIS is when homosexuality was introduced into the earth. Hence, Sodom and Gomorrah….
ILLEGITIMATE STIMULATION, INTERCOURSE IN THE SPIRIT AND THE NATURAL, ILLEGITIMATE IMPARTATION AND CONCEPTIONS AND ILLEGITIMATE BIRTHS!!!!!!!!
Now, I know. Someone is gonna say…’How could a birth of a child EVER be wrong?’
When it was NOT in the will of GOD for that child to be conceived in the first place! THATS HOW!!!
Ishmael was NOT supposed to be born, or conceived. But he was, by folks who said they knew God, too.
Don’t tell me saved folks don’t birth things illegitimately! It happens more times than we like to mention!
BE NOT EQUALLY YOKED TOGETHER WITH UNBELIEVERS is a real concept, ppl.
Translate that to mean, also…’DON”T HAVE NO BABIES WITH THEM, EITHER!”
Ministerially speaking, don’t start ministries, fellowship with, partner with, ANYONE who you KNOW is an unbeliever. I don’t care if Apostle, Prophet, Chief Prelate of whatever, Pastor, or Evangelist is in front of their name. The DEVIL got his five fold, too! WHY? TO ILLEGITIMATELY BIRTH MINISTRY-DEMONIC MINISTRY-IN THE SPIRIT AND THE NATURAL.
God is FOR giving birth…but ONLY to what HE HAS ORDAINED.
Now there IS mercy for those of us who have birthed Ishmaels, and I believe we all have. But do know that some of the very trials, tribulations and adversities that we seek prayer and intercession for ON A CONSISTENT BASIS were NOT initiated or ordained to take place in our lives. These things we go thru were not the destinies God had in mind for us. But we bring them on ourselves as a result of our sin. Abraham had to forever deal with the separation from his own flesh and blood b/c of his disobedience. And I am sure he had NO idea that his precious little Ishmael would grow up to birth a nation of ppl that would forever be at war with HIS ppl!
We bring trouble on ourselves in our own disobedience, impatience and rebellion. God is there to help…but how much greater reward is it if instead of taking all that time, energy, anointing and applying it to the original assignments GOD ordained for us to complete instead of trying to FIX problems/Ishmaels WE birthed into this realm? But do know that even in mercy, there is a price to pay for disobedience.
We truly reap what we sow….
Please take heed. THIS IS REAL! The enemy is not gonna came at some of us with crack, or Hypnotiq or perversion. Some of us he is gonna get with false ministry gifts, false five fold, false anointings coming to us and presenting themselves like they are the real thing.
KEEP UR EYES OPEN!
God Bless and Shalom!
