Learning From Your Mistakes

20 Jul
By Pastor Pam Sheppard 

 

Mistakes and Deliverance

Image result for learning from your mistakes

 It has been my experience that the doorway UNKNOWINGLY left wide open to demonic torment is a captive’s fear of ever making a mistake. Demons take great pleasure in tormenting people who they can control with criticism, shame and accusation. As a deliverance counselor, I realize that for each captive, there is a different root cause. For the most part, a fear of making a mistake comes from how you were raised. Those who have been under the authority of extremely judgmental, critical parenting are inclined to either become passive or aggressive in their response to this fear.

The passive ones try to “always be correct and proper” because they are afraid of suffering the consequences that judgmental parenting brings. On my web caseload over the last 14 years, those who are constantly hearing critical, accusing voices in their minds have been raised by critical, judgmental parents. Perfectionism in passive people also leads them to be ardent people pleasers–a breeding ground for depression.

The aggressive folks tend to become the rebels of the world who often seem to make mistakes on purpose and by design because they simply enjoy annoying people. In other words, “if you made me the black sheep of the family, I’m going to play that role with style and gusto! If you told me when I was 10 years old that I am going to be no good, just like my father, well, I am going to be “my father” to the 25th power. So watch me, Mom, as I go through the revolving prison door of recidivism. Watch me and suffer Mom, because you have tried to frame me with a fear of being like a Dad that I didn’t even know, because of you and YOUR failures!

Here is another pattern. January 2 of every year  could be renamed “Get Rid of the Fat Day. There are unseen reasons why some of us got fat. Here is the scenario for the rebel:  ” If you have called me “fat” all of my life when I was not fat but voluptuous and my sensuality disturbed you, Mom—-I am REALLY going to become fat just to show you what FAT REALLY IS AND that I don’t care what you think of my body type!!!!”

Scenarios like these are often played out on a sub-conscious level. Anytime you don’t know who you are and why you are behaving the way that you do, you are a prime target for demonic interference. As a deliverance counselor, this is the reason  why I am less concerned about whether or not you ever experimented with the occult or drugs than I am about how you deal with “making mistakes.” It does not take a great deal of education to become a great learner. Learning involves listening and mimicking. Even if we can’t read or write, life itself is going to teach us something!!!” If you have never made a mistake then you have not learned very much.

For the Christian in particular, God designs the lessons of life disguised in the form of obstacles, mistakes and difficulties through a maze of trials, tribulations, troubles and tests. Why? Because the Christian walk in the spirit by faith in God alone is what earns us our eternal crowns. Without any ashes, there is no beauty. Without failure, there is no glory. Without falling, we really don’t know how to stand. We are sinners who must totally rely on the Holy Spirit’s leading in order to please a perfect God. He is pleased when we can resist the pride of our sinful nature and embrace our ashes.

I was born 73 years ago. I was born again 40 years ago. All I have to give to God is a life of mistakes and failures. These are my infirmities, and like Paul, I actually glory in them. I know that I glory in them because when I speak or write about my mistakes, I have no inner pulling of sorrow, shame or regret in my heart. I know that I glory in them because I give practically no thought or expression to the things that man would consider successful accomplishments. I glory in my mistakes because I have come to know that the power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is all over me when I can acknowledge my own weaknesses.

There is a difference between making a mistake and being a mistake. If I am in Christ, then I am not a mistake. On the contrary, if I rely on “self,” then I am functioning as a mistake. What the bible confirms is that God did not believe that I was a mistake or I would not be here. God does not believe that YOU are a mistake or YOU would not be here either. When we begin to see even an iota of how big and all-consuming God is, then we will stop worrying about our mistakes and the demons that are assigned to us will be bound and gagged.

Twenty eight years ago, I committed a serious sin that brought about its consequences and its ramifications. On last Friday, the religious demon assigned to me sent me a dream that showed me committing the exact same sin and “loving it.” Demons rarely accuse me of sin because they know that I don’t receive or respond to their guilt trips. However, THIS time, they “got me good” because the dream disturbed at least half of my day. The dream was a mockery. What I found offensive is that I was shown that I still have the desire to do the exact same thing, a sin that would be extremely hurtful to God as well as to other people whom I would certainly hurt.

Do I have the desire to commit the sin again? Absolutely not. Would I do so if tempted? Absolutely not. However, here is the truth of it. The flesh DOES NOT CHANGE! In my flesh, I am STILL capable of committing the exact same sin TODAY!!! Yet, though I am capable, I WILL not do it. Why not? Because I don’t walk in the flesh. I walk in the spirit. And because of Jesus Christ, the desires of my heart and my spirit HAVE CHANGED. There is NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.

You see, Brethren, Christians who are afraid of making mistakes focus on self-righteousness and not on the righteousness of God in Christ. They are not looking to the cross. They are looking to self. They are trying to please God just as they tried to please their earthly parents. Yet our understanding and practice of perfection is totally different from God’s as it pertains to His people. Take Job, as our classic biblical example. He was as perfect as man can get, pleasing to God, yet prior to Calvary.

That was Job’s problem. He was toooo perfect. He had no mistakes to draw from. Without the mistakes, Job really did not know God very well. Once God allowed the devil to attack Job, Job’s hidden mistakes were revealed. He was focused on “self-righteousness. The true nature of God was also revealed. Once confronted by his religious friends, Job became defensive. Defensiveness is an outgrowth of pride. If you are defensive, then even the very thought of making a mistake becomes a bondage to you. On the real, face it. Mistakes are part of our lives and we will keep making mistakes till our last breath. In my book, “Faces of the Religious Demon” are scores of case summaries of professing Christians who religious demons tormented because their captives were afraid of making mistakes.  For one reason or another, deliverance counseling uncovered   a complicated pride system at the root.

If I am speaking to YOU, then deliverance counseling or mentoring will help you get the victory in 2017. So call and book a telephone session. 1-888-818-1117

“On Becoming Deception-Proof” by Pam Sheppard

22 Jun

“Just because a person is born again does not make them “deception proof.”

The Lord would not have warned His disciples to “take heed and be not deceived” if there was no danger that they COULd be deceived. It does not matter how many things you are or were deceived about. For 25 years, I was deceived about a few things in comparison to what other churchgoers were deceived about. Yet the Holy Spirit did not release me from the deception until He was ready to. He simply stepped in when He chose the time to be right and started unravelling things. What I remain cautious about is this. Just because I am undeceived NOW, does not mean that it is impossible for me to be deceived again. For me to think otherwise would be both pride and arrogance and I do not want God to resist me.

So what is deception?

Deception has to do with thoughts in the mind. Simply put, we believe a lie or a half truth. The worst of it is the assumptions. if you start off with even one little wrong assumption, everything else falls like dominos.

As I am reading some of the works of the RESCUE look alike leader, I am watching how a person can start out with truth and how the enemy can use the truth they have received and lead them into a lie. What happens is that the enemy takes advantage of our misconception of truth. He uses the weaknesses of our personalities to lead us into believing what suits us best.

This realization is humbling me quite a bit. I believe that once we are given truth, we have to seek God in prayer to help us not to misunderstand truth for our conception of truth may cause us to err.

So my question is “how do we make ourselves fool-proofed to deception?”

I think we can all answer this from experience. just examined how we got deceived, what was it about us that caused us to be open to the deception, and how did you come out of it?”

SCANDAL and The Institutional Church by Pam Sheppard

30 Jun

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.

SCANDAL

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 20140303_185514because 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.

The Power of Fruit to Produce Spiritual Wellness

5 Feb

What did the Lord mean when He said “Blessed are the meek?”  The Apostle Paul added to the Lord’s revelation when he taught the Galatians that meekness is a fruit of the Spirit.

What then, is fruit?

I believe that fruit is the manifestation of the power of the resurrection in a person’s life.  Simply put, does an individual demonstrate in his or her life that Jesus Christ is alive?

As Jesus taught, “if we abide in Him, then we will bear fruit.” So in order to manifest fruit, we must abide in Him. To abide is “to live in” or “to dwell.”   Jesus also revealed that He came that we might have life, and have it more abundantly.  So, abundant life is a synonym for “fruit.”

Since the just shall live by faith, if we walk in faith, then our lives should be fruitful. Our faith is our evidence of the power of the resurrection.  When we believe on the resurrection, we believe that Jesus is alive.  Therefore, to bear fruit, is to consistently live by faith, in a manner that demonstrates that Jesus Christ is no longer in the tomb.  It is a power that is demonstrated without even the necessity of quoting a scripture. Demonstration of power will be apparent in those who have the Holy Ghost in them.

Demonstrations of power are obtained by building one’s foundation upon the Rock.  Jesus declared that if we built our house upon the rock, and not upon sand, when the storms of life attack us, we will remain standing. In this context, then once again, the 9 fruit of the Spirit represent “the rock.” From an architectural, natural standpoint, when we build a house, we would like to have confidence in its foundation.  Therefore, when we look for fruit that will demonstrate the resurrection power of the Lord Jesus Christ, we should examine where the client or captive has placed his or her confidence.

There is such a thing as “fake fruit.”  I am sure that you have at one time been fooled by plastic or rubber fruit sitting in a bowl as the center piece on a dining room table.  Sometimes these plastic replicas look even better  than the real thing from a distance.  However, up close, you can see that there is no life in fake fruit.  This is also true of fake spiritual fruit.

Take for example the fruit of meekness or humility.  Those who are “fake”, may appear to have a lack of self-confidence.  However, at the root of their apparent meekness may be  compulsive modesty.  In such instances, the captive’s pattern is to overlook his  own viewpoint, suggesting that the thoughts and ways of others are more reliable than his own. False humility of this kind will lead the captive to not feel safe unless a significant other in his life will protect, defend, advise or nurture him.

In such cases, the captive loses the capability to take responsibility for his own life.  With women, the Adam’s Rib Syndrome develops, where she does not view herself as a whole person without a mate to help her feel complete.

False meekness also manifests itself when professing  Christians who have low self concept develop techniques and processes whereby the self is placed in the background by losing self-regard.  In an attempt to avoid anger at all cost, the captive will repress hostility and will become self-effacing.  Some captives will merely adjust their behavior to adapt to the stronger personality, while others will allow their personalities to be changed by stronger people.  People like this are often wrongfully perceived as having the fruit of meekness.

As a case in point, women suffering from the “Adam’s Rib Syndrome” tend to build their foundation upon the sand, where their partner is at the center. The woman will undoubtedly expect the partner to fulfill all of her expectations, becoming a ready victim to a demonic soul tie. She is left vulnerable to manipulation and domination, where the fruit of love is also bogus and without power. Love is a fruit of the spirit that is liberating, for as the scriptures indicate, perfect love casts out fear.  However, the Adam’s Rib Syndrome is not based upon true, solid love.  In fact, carnal love can become in itself a stronghold that leads to fear of desertion and a fear of being alone.  As an example, a woman who is dependent upon an abusive partner will be hindered from making any independent moves of her own.  Therefore, those in bondage to such a stronghold are most likely to lack spontaneity of feeling, thought and will power.

Each stronghold will create a specific fear or doubt as well as an accompanying pride system that will be difficult to break through.  Christians so bound, will often attribute their strongholds to demons, when in actuality, casting out a demon will not bring any lasting relief.  This is because the stronghold is embedded in the captive’s personality and is therefore a stronghold in the soul.  In cases where there has been little to no personality change, it will seem as though deliverance has failed when in reality, the root of the problem was not so much demonic as it was “soulical.” Casting out demons may bring a momentary sense of freedom or joy.  Even so, a substantial, solid deliverance is one where the fruit of  true meekness has been planted and nurtured.

Since meekness is the doorway to blessing, any captive in need of deliverance must become poor in spirit. (Matthew 5) To be poor in spirit is to be emptied of one’s character defects.  Deliverance will empty the captive from demons, but these demons and others will ultimately return if the conditions that provided them a safe haven still remain.  Therefore, my job as a bearer of the word of God is to seek the help of the Holy Spirit to sensitize a conscience that has been hardened by the pride of life.    Meekness is manifested when the captive comes to the realization that his thoughts are not as high as the Lord’s thoughts, nor his ways higher than the Lord’s ways.

Continual brokenness before the Lord Jesus Christ has sustained me with a simple, yet a profound truth and it is this. “Whatever does not originate in your inward parts–in your spirit–will not bring you life.” In this regard, I have learned through personal experience that false or counterfeit spirituality may appear to produce a beneficial result but it cannot grant authentic, lasting,  resurrection life. I have entered into the Lord’s rest because I myself have labored by the revelation of the Holy Ghost. No more vain strivings for success according to man’s standards.  If I speak no more for the remainder of my life, I will remain satisfied. For with each of my seven  books, I believe that I have declared more than a mouthful.

Like an author or an artist, very often a prophet’s fruit is not fully manifested until after his or her death. John the Beloved is a poignant example of a prophet who is even yet waiting among the mighty cloud of witnesses for the  inspired words that he wrote on the isle of Patmos  to be completely fulfilled at the appointed time.  What I myself have learned on this spiritual journey with Jesus Christ can fill several books, and if the Lord allows me to live, I hope that other books shall l be written.

 I have also begun to mentor and nurture other Christian writers, beginning with Wenona Russ and her first e-book entitled “The Makings of a False Prophet.” I see great strength. and power in Wenona’s work.  Why?  Because I see the root of meekness manifesting in her walk as a Christian non-fiction author who has a powerful message to proclaim, borne out of a fruitbearing life.

The Religious Spirit and Passivity by Ola Cruz

20 Nov

Passive personalities have a unscriptural understanding of what it means to be a peacemaker. They deny their own anger, and pretend everything is O.K. When we are passive, and believe that to be a Christian means to be a doormat, the religious demon moves in. Why does the religious demon gain a foothold? Pam Sheppard is not only the expert on the topic, but she has written a book called ” Faces of the Religious Demon” that covers all in detail.

According to Pam, the religious demon causes passive spirits to become spiritually crippled in regards to taking a stand against principalities and powers. I can certainly attest to and understand what Pam is referring to. I have been physically crippled all of my life. Because of the wheelchair, the enemy has tried to use fake Christians to spiritually cripple me.  Yet for my own protection and for the power to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in a hostile world, , I am as bold as a lion. If you can’t take a stand against other Christians who  are obviously  pushing you around, and taking advantage of you, something is wrong. How on earth will you be able to confront demons?

10/25/11 Thirty years a Minister and the author of 6 books

When Christian leaders are allowed to vent their unholy appetites in the organized church, because their passive followers are too weak to confront them…Those who are passive personalities, because of a distorted and unscriptural understanding of the Gospel, are fodder for the religious demon. How so?

Tell me why Christian leaders who are tyrants and bullies, leave a trail of passive personalities quivering in their boots?  And also tell me why Christian leaders like Pam Sheppard who are sincere, and God sent, are attacked by passive personalities simply because of their  boldness and love for the truth?

On page 207 of the groundbreaking textbook ” Faces of the Religious Demon” Pam Sheppard writes in reference to personality types that religious demons gain power from:

Faces of the Religious Demon By Pam Sheppard

Pam Sheppard writes:

In each personality type there will be Christians who have not rightly divided the word of God relative to being  a peacemaker, where forgiveness and meekness are taken for weakness. Acclimated to the general role of peacemaker, captives may live a life of pretense, where they habitually hide and deny justifiable hostility and anger so as to turn the other cheek ” religiosity “.

In this regard, the religious spirit will cause passive saints to become spiritually crippled in their counterfeit moral purity, predisposing to a shrinking process that stifles their ability to strike back–not so much at people who have wronged them, but for taking a stand against principalities and powers. They end up feeling like one of my clients who dreamed she was the  back seat driver in her own car, and the person whom the Jezebel spirit has manipulated to keep the client in captivity was metaphorically ” behind the wheel ” of her very soul.

A passive personality invites religious demons. Passivity and counterfeit love (term coined by Pam) are pretense, if you are  angry– you’re angry.  Pretending not to be angry is a counterfeit emotion. If we are such passive personalities, that we can’t deal with onslaughts and abuse upon our own person, what then? Can God use a passive personality? Or will your passive personality better serve the purposes of the religious demon?

While Pam Sheppard was pastoring a church in Troy NY that she and her daughter founded, I was an active member. My kind of passivity was that I never tried the spirits.  I had received a false conversion when I was 11 years old. Consequently,  I preached, prophesied, , and spoke  in tongues by the power of a religious demon. Everyone believed that I was anointed by God.However, in 2002, the Lord spoke to me in a dream.  He showed me that I had 3 demons, one of which was a spirit of divination aka “a religious demon.” As my pastor, Pam was bold enough and loved me enough to go “toe to toe” with those 3 demons, and the Holy Ghost used her boldness to set me free to truly be born again. Based upon our testimony together, Pam wrote “Faces of the Religious Demon.”

Pam Sheppard has been born again for 35 years.  Once an atheist, new age channeler and astrologer, the Lord intervened and defied the fallen angels that had her bound. Spiritual entities do not mess with Pam today  because of her boldness and her faith in Jesus Christ.. She’s an expert on the topic of deliverance. If you need deliverance from passivity, and allowing yourself to be abused, call her. If you need deliverance from allowing the organized church, and abrasive Christian leaders  to dog you out, call her. If you need deliverance of any kind, even if you just need to talk, call Pam. The phone lines are open, and her team of supervised deliverance mentors are waiting to serve you. Pam has been on the battlefield for a long time.  This fact alone should spur you to make that call Now!

DECEPTION: SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT

16 Nov

The masses are being deceived by satan using his lies of being “slain in the spirit”.

<a href=”“>

Looking back over 30 years of ministry, I remember How I lusted after the power to manifest the slain in the spirit phenomena for about 10 years. When I finally obtained the power, I thought it would put my ministry on the map to mega-stardom. Yet, I began to  watch and pray over those in my congregation who consistently fell slain. What I noticed is that most of the people who fell, were not able to STAND in their faith or for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of them were filled with sin. Once the Lord started sending me professing Christians who were in demonic torment, I soon discovered a significant sample of cases wherein people actually picked up demons in church services similar to those in this video clip.

Hear is a quote from the New Idolatry.

Christians have fallen under the power since the 1760’s. It was a common expression among the Shakers and also one of the signs of the ministry of Marie Woodward-Etter (1844-1924) KNOWN AS “THE TRANCE EVANGELIST.” About 15 years before the Azusa Street Revival that started the Pentecostal Church, Etter began manifesting the phenomena in her meetings in 1885.”

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.

Tongues Opens a Demonic Doorway To Your Spirit

How I Protect My Spirit by Pam Sheppard

Last fall, I was riding along slightly mesmerized by  the beautiful colors of the fall season, when a power came on me to compel me to speak in tongues.  As the first word tried to blurt its way out of me, I rebuked the demon sitting in full view of others waiting in their lane for the light to change.  Out loud, I rebuked “this thing”  not once but at least 3 or 4 times before I felt the compulsion to utter finally  leave me.

I know what some of you are thinking.  “Wasn’t that the Holy Ghost IN you, Pam, that wanted to use you to magnify God in the  awesome beauty of His creation?”

To answer your question without going through a long teaching on tongues, I will respond this way.  The Holy Ghost is a Gentleman.  He is God so He knows everything.  As such, He knows that I no longer believe in the manifestation of speaking in tongues, at least not in this hour of gross deception. He would not endanger my life on a busy highway. As such, He would not approach me with tongues because He knows that I will not receive Him that way.  The fact that I had to rebuke “this entity”  more than once is an indication that the tongue that tried to manifest “was not God.!”

So what I did this afternoon was “protect my spirit” at an hour that was completely unexpected.  In the quotation taken from  the book of Luke, the Lord’s parable  above, “the house” is symbolic of man in  spirit, soul and body.  Protecting the body is extremely important to natural living, as our eternal nature of spirit and soul cannot function  on earth without our bodies.  The more my body ages, the more committed I am to protecting it.  However, my concentration in these mentoring letters is both the soul and the spirit..

Protecting what is totally invisible can be quite challenging.  The first thing you need to become aware of is “the thief.”  The thief is a Satanic agent that has been assigned to both you and to me from the moment of our birth.  He is always there.  No need to fear him because if he could have “taken me out,” he would have done so already.  His objective was to keep me on the broad way so that the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ would not shine on me.  However, once the Holy Spirit selected  “my hour,” Satan’s agent has failed.  Even so, he never gives up.  However, I have resisted him to such an extent, that most of the time, he is “in flee” mode.

The goal of these posts is to “prepare you for the thief.”  The thief desires to sift you like wheat by any means necessary.

Since the agent assigned to you has been watching you, he knows you, to a certain extent.  When my agent “knew” me, he had lots of success.  One of the strategies that he used against me was to threaten me or people close to me.  My natural reaction to a threat is to fight, and meet the challenger face to face, toe to toe.  However, once  I am in the midst of a pre-fabricated battle, the agent  sneakily attacks me from behind, namely,  he comes against what I have left vulnerable and un-protected.  Once my eyes became open to how the enemy was using me against myself, I no longer react to threats before “I watch and I pray.”  Most of the time, the threat had no substance and it withers almost as soon as it came.

You ask “well, why would the agent assigned to you. approach you with tongues?”  Because I have closed off all of the enemy’s doorways, and tongues is the only way he can reach my spirit.   His biggest doorway that has been slammed shut is my dreams.  I have trained my spirit to reject, even while I am sleeping, any subliminal message that is sent to discourage  me or weaken me in spirit, soul and body.  It is hard to describe but I have set up spiritual blockades.  Even if the enemy agent is able to break through, my spirit automatically reacts aggressively.

For example, the enemy came at me last October  in a dream,  trying to tell me that “I am next in the death by sickness department, since it appears to be  a season for people I have known for years to be sick and dying.  Also, it is a vulnerable month in my life,—the month when most I know have died.  In a recent dream, Satan’s agent came to me in the form of an old friend from college who kept trying to bombard my spirit with the fear of death. You need to know that your agent can come to you in any form.

My reaction while asleep?  I boldly proclaimed, “my doctor told me that even though I have lived a long time, I have yet a long time to live because I am so healthy.” My doctor actually said this and I repeated his words to this “friend.”  Then the agent openly reveal himself very nastily and retorted, “but you are obese.”  My response?  “Yeh, but I’m workin on that! Being overweight will NOT KILL ME!!!

I have learned that once you overcome the fear of dying, then your agent has been silenced.  My strong tower is “a thousand may fall at my side and 10,000 at my  right hand, but it shall NOT COME NIGH ME!!!! ” This is the nature of my spirit when I see myself operating in dreams.  I am fit and fearless.

My hopeful anticipation of the return of the Lord keeps me fit and fearless.  Why?  Because if the Lord returns within a life span of 100 years from the day that I was born, then I have trained myself to believe that I will be alive when He comes again because “I can make it to 100.”

If Jesus Christ of Nazareth  tarries and I have “gone on,” then I believe that I will still be alive though my body be waiting for me in its grave.  Every Christian generation has held on to this anchor of their soul in order to defeat the fear of death.  I just happen to believe that I am living in the generation where every sign that “this is the Lord’s hour”  is “there.”  So if I can live, I intend to live and the agent assigned to me cannot condition me for dying before I am ready to go.  Now that is that with that!  lol

WATCH OUT FOR THE "I HAVE A WORD FROM THE LORD FOR YOU " FOLK!

21 Oct

THE ENEMY USES "WELL MEANERS"AND "DO GOODERS" TO SEND YOU EVIL!

 

DID “THUS SAITH THE LORD?”

 

Only the Holy Ghost knows how many in Christiandom who claim to be prophets by declaring , “thus saith the Lord,” or “God told me,” or “I was led in the spirit”—are really the messengers of Satan sent to control your life in God. Today, in the 21st century, churches are filled with soothsayers and charismatic hype masters whose message from the pulpit is merely a gratification of the flesh. There is aseductive spirit of divination sweeping across churches of all persuasions, seeking to control the lives of the un-suspecting. Laityleaders serve as divination foot-soldiers,forearmed “with a word” to maintain the power and authority of those in the pulpits. Demons help out also as they whisper into congregant’s ears, “give a $1000 dollars.”

 I can recall that one of my associates, Minister Kellie,  completely delivered depression  in record time by the power of God, was approached by a member of her former church. Although Kellie’s  progress is sheerly remarkable, the former church member approached her with a “thus saith the Lord.” “I had a vision of you and I saw you have a python snake attached to your spirit.Are you okay? Since you left the church, we’ve all had concerns about you. We’ve all been praying for your return to the fold.”

 In one of our mentoring telephone  conversations, Kellie casually mentioned this but I could tell that she was shaken by it. I yelled through the telephone “NO! STOP. THAT WORD CAME FROM THE HEART OF A DEMON ASSIGNED TO STEAL YOUR RECOVERY FROM YOU! DO NOT RECEIVE IT!!!!”

 Certainly, professing Christians without knowledge may seem to have good intentions.Yet, when you find yourself in bondage to what they claim God has said about you to them, what does it matter whether they had either good or bad intentions??? The results are the same.Your spirit has been penetrated and the enemy has successfully planted his desires into YOUR spirit to cause you confusion and ultimate harm!!!!

 Take it from someone who knows. I am well insulated by God from face to face contact with people who allow demons to use them as messengers of Satan to control my life . I have even learned how to block out my dreams. So when the enemy cannot “reach me,” he’ll make a phone call, send a facebook message or send an email.

 Now I know that’s right!

10/25/11 "THIRTY YEARS IN MINISTRY!"

I have received “thus saith the Lords” in emails and over the telephone on quite a few occasions. Now when I personally receive “a word” about someone else, I have learned to “keep my mouth shut.” Control freaks can’t do this. They are under too much compulsion to blurt out knowledge obtained by supernatural means to prove that “they are anointed of God.”

 Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. Then he will use your self induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring his plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy. You see, it is easier  “do what they do,” with your cooperation and consent. In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits.

Recently,someone sent me a message. He had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me because of my website and that they wereattempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold him. Wouldn’t make any sense cause the damage was already done. Coincidence or not, at that very moment,I was involved in a situation with someone who had “witchcraft in her background.” So of course, my eyebrow was raised but I didn’tpanic. I was just extra careful and observant.

 The thing to do is to “watch and pray.”

 Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone that you care about.Pray and rest in God. If God showed him  that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling him  to pray. Fallen angels are extremely skilled at using friends, the people even of your own household, to speak evil into your life. So wisdom is certainly necessary. I learned the hard way to “be slow to speak.”

 Therefore, when someone comes to you with a “thus saith the Lord” and it does not compute with you, you must become verbally aggressive.I do it regularly. People may think that I am crazy but I am quick to get animated and boldly declare, “no. I rebuke that. I don’t receive that.”

 Sometimes I get worst and like the Lord, I’ll speak directly to that demon and say “get thee behind me.” I don’t care what people think. It is too important that I guard my spirit.

 YOU MUST DO THE SAME!

 If you have left the church or you are considering leaving, perhaps you would like to be assigned one of our ministers to mentor you.  If so, give us a call at 518-477-5759
