Religion Takes Away Your Identity

2 Oct

jail

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.

WOMEN, WISE UP AND RISE UP!

6 Nov

WOMEN, WISE UP AND RISE UP! By Pam Sheppard

I must admit that in the first 5 decades of my life, I did not particularly like women because in my  world space, there were just  too many  meely mouthed, back stabbin  female crabs in a barrel. And even though I had my issues with men as well, I liked them better and preferred their company and friendship to that of my own gender.  In fact, when I was in my twenties and thirties, my best friends were gay.  We could shop and do the hair, nails and dress up thing, but when I was pulled into a cat fight, their masculine strength would rescue me in  a New York minute.

Now that I have been saved 34 years, with 30 years  in ministry under my belt, I have really grown to love my sistahs and my sisters. Don’t know what I would do with out my crew.   Yet, online, I have run into a wild, unruly bunch  of professing Christian women who are like bulls or heifers  in a China shop.  I call them, “Holy Phony Silly Women!” They are constantly posting teaching material, yet claiming “oh, I am merely about Christian fellowship and I am not a teacher.I am simply “sharing.”

Holy Phony Silly women are those who think they can step out on the Internet—on Facebook, in chat rooms, by email, Skype, YouTube, you name it, they are out there from all over the world, buttin heads with Christian  folk like wild heifers. The freedom of the world-wide web has mesmerized  them to forget Pauls words–-not to use liberty as a license to rebellion. Paul  said it like this.  “All things are expedient to me but all things are not lawful or helpful.”

Much too much that women are “teaching”  and “preaching”  on the web is not only NOT helpful, but it is harmful.

The bible also tells us to avoid silly women and unfortunately, in spite of my affection and concern  for them, I have to turn away. It is not necessary to know a lot to teach.  The issue is that what ya know— ya KNOW!— bottom-line is that what you teach should be without error.

One who teaches needs to be able to discern fact from truth, a hypothesis from a finding,  a  supposition from a conclusion.  Yet women are on video clips and writing Facebook notes and tweeting  about spiritual growth and end time matters. when they have not a clue.  Then, when they are  confronted, they angrily  justify and defend themselves with,

 “Oh, I am just a housewife.  I am not teaching.  I am just “spending quality  time with my online friends. I am not as bold as YOU Pam, to say that I am a teacher.  Oh no.  I am not a teacher.  I am just “having conversation.”  For after all, I am too humble to appoint myself, as YOU have done.   I have the fear of the Lord because I know that a woman is not supposed to teach.  And I know that teachers receive the greater judgment and condemnation for teaching error!”

Holy Baloney!

This is that same ole slippery way that women deal with their husbands.  You’ve played your manipulative games with him for so long,–letting him believe that he is running your home when you KNOW the truth is  that YOU are!!! Consequently, you rationalize  that you can also manipulate God and pretend that “you are not teaching YOUR interpretation of the word of God.

Let’s get real, Sisters.  This is Holy Phoniness to the max. It stinks in my spiritual nostrils. You not only quote scripture, but you declare to people how they ought to worship and “get in the presence of the Lord,” whether or not to fast, how to fast and pray, —and even deeper–that there is no rapture, that Jesus is not literally coming back but that it is a “spiritual” return, that people should not prepare themselves for end times, that those who speak in tongues are going to hell, that Pentecostals are all unsaved heathens.  That various folk are false prophets—I’ve heard a woman call them lunatics.  And on and on it goes, day after day.

But this is not “teaching” you see! It is that great ole euphemism called “sweet fellowship with the saints and harmless, idle conversation”  Oh, no.  YOU  not a teacher.  Yeh!

To that, I say this.  Consider the “technical virgins” of today.  They believe themselves to be righteous because they have never experienced coitus by vaginal penetration, yet they masturbate 4 times a day to online porn or they are having anal and oral sex on a regular basis. “Look yall, I’m still a virgin. Yeh!

So I say to Holy Phony Silly Women. don’t think that God cannot distinguish between a euphemism and the real thing. He can tell the difference between Christian fellowship and teaching. You are TEACHING!

After 30 years in ministry, if I don’t know my calling  BY NOW and if I am not bold enough to stand in it, then I am as Holy Phony as the rest of them..

Yes, I am a teacher. But I am also a pastor, an evangelist, a prophet and if I knew what an Apostle is today, I might be one of them too. I am not ashamed of my calling simply because I am a woman. Man did not call me. God did! Man has to live with what God has already done!

So “either teach, as WOMEN OF GOD,  OR GET OFF THE POT, Sister!

If you decide to teach, I can train you in 3-6 months. You don’t have to affiliate with me and no one has to know that I am the one who “undeceived you” and you can go about your merry way. It won’t matter to me.  My concern is for those who are following you that  some of you are feeding error every day, yet taking no responsibility for your error for fear that God will condemn you for teaching.

He will condemn you for being a hypocrit. You are teaching because the Lord has called you to teach anf you are pretending not to be a teacher because you are a woman. Sounds like a Catch 22 to me.

Time is runnin out, Gurl!

Humble yourself  right now, Gurl,  to the fact that you are teaching without proper training! Time is too short to be narrowminded and petty. You need to get your act together, like yesterday! ASAP! WOMEN, YOU MUST NOT KEEP SILENT FOR YOU MUST TEACH. EITHER STAND UP AND TEACH BUT GET TRAINED FIRST.REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT.

Any Sister  who FEELS A CALL TO TEACH, wise up and rise up—–, call me at 518-477-5759. I’ll hook you up!!!

Does Pam Sheppard Teach Truth? Part 1

16 Oct
Minister Marlene Taylor

Pam Sheppard  might just ruffle the tender feathers of those who claim to stand for truth.  Pam Sheppard wields her sword of truth with no apology. The lone ranger disciple, minister or teacher is puffed up, and angry at the false teachers that he or she has encountered.

I can understand the anger, butI  have no sympathy for those who deny the truths of the Gospel, and insist that God shall teach them directly. My dear readers, the notion that God has left His people without a teacher or prophet, is an outright lie from the pits of hell. No where in the Bible is it stated or implied that a time will come when God will speak to YOU or ME or ANYONE directly. To believe so exposes a spirit of rebellion. I’m not saying that Got never speaks to His people, but there are different parts, and assignments in the body. No one disciple or minister is an island unto himself.

So then, those who go off alone, have been taken over by a spirit of pride. Rather than drink in the truths Pam Sheppard brings forth, they rather stubbornly teach what they think they know. This is folly and grave error. Teachers will receive greater punishment from God. And if you cover truth by claiming not to be a teacher, yet you continue to spread your musings about God’s truth as you see it—. What then? I’d say self-deception has gained a foothold in your life.
 Oh yes! Many of these would be, lone ranger teachers, fundamentally agree with Pam’s stance that the time is  ” NOW ” to exit the organized church. Many of them also agree with the fact that countless false conversions are the order of the day.
Yet, it is Pam Sheppard who spent over 30 years  finding this out, and many other topics relating to demonic possession and more. Rather than sit at her feet, they catch a few kernels of truth from Pam’s writings and scurry back to their unGodly platform, a few even steal her words without even the respect of citing her.
.
 It is unGodly and an abomination to believe that God deserts His people, leaving them to fend for themselves.
Remnant believers, who have already followed the commands of Revelation 18:4 still lose extensive ground. How do they do this: to believe that you or I, are the only one’s who will sit at the Lord’s last table is pompous and proud. Lone ranger disciples, have missed the mark, and gone the way of Cain. How so?—Cain was jealous of his brother’s right standing with the Lord. Yet the Lord God offered Cain a chance to make things right, Cain refused (Genesis 4:6,7,)
Does Pam Sheppard teach truth? Hear this—I could have gone on in error out of anger at the organized church. I could have developed a rebellious , bitter, head strong spirit and become a lone ranger minister. I could have gathered some of God’s people to myself, and taught that which I believed was correct, but I did not. I was one who was was writing and blogging online, about the ills of the church, and had over 20,000 readers on a blogging platform at Triond.com. But guess what? I shut my writing down, stopped and left teaching and ranting by the wayside. The Lord gave me a helping hand too, as eventually I was locked out  of my own pages. I got the hint and  stopped writing!
Why? Because the Lord directed me to in various ways. Why? Because the moment I got a hold of Pam Sheppard’s writings, I got an automatic check in my spirit from the Lord, that she was not only a teacher, she was the teacher. More than this, she is a prophet to the remnant, and her position is that of a trainer to ministers. She is here to teach ministers.
 Yes God speaks to His people. God spoke to me and I heard Him. I don’t deny that. But there are different members in the body, with various assignments.

Pam Sheppard: Author of " Faces of the Religious Demon "

Now, you may or may not believe this, as pride is a heavy blanket. Pride will block the ears, and cloak the eyes. But know this: Pam has taught us that the organized church is over run with ” counterfeit births” a term she herself coined. The false conversions in every church are at epic proportions.
Many lone ranger disciples/teachers, are in full agreement with Pam on this. So then I say to you, just as in the days of John the Baptist, Pamela Sheppard has been sent to call the countless believers who experienced a false conversion TO TRUE REPENTANCE…so that we are throughly prepared for the coming of the Lord.
I have no intention of rousing up the 20,000 readers Ionce had from my old blog with rants, complaints and faulty teachings. I have no intention of teaching period, unless what I say meets the approval of Pam. I’m in a season to learn, and unlearn the false teachings I had been subject to in the organized church. Am I ashamed? No, rather I am happy that God has not left me in ignornance.

Does Pam Sheppard teach truth? My spirit bears witness that ALL Pam teaches is truth. I invite you to this reading below, entitled ” The Pam Sheppard Interview “. And if you are one who believes that God shall teach YOU DIRECTLY, I implore you to pray about Pam Sheppard. Seek the Lord for guidance as I have done. If you can not pray this prayer, something is wrong.
 The apostle Paul has commaded us to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. Even so, there are NO lone, alone, lone ranger pastors mentioned in scripture. Jesus had 12 disciples, and he sent out the 12 two by two. We are living in a time when disciples must be retrained/retaught, and sent out again to the remanant. Will you be one of them? Remember this, each day we grow closer to the Lord’s return.

PRIDE IS YOUR ENEMY!

14 Oct

The devil's deception was broken in my life because I am quick to admit to error and I am not a people pleaser.

Facebook is a place where everyone wants to teach and be heard and few want their followers to know that they don’t know very much.   Rebellion and belligerance is very apparent in their various posts which portrays a rebellious  spirit. Since rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, many facebook teachers are in the hands of the enemy and God has turned some of  them over to strong delusion. 

 There are some teachers on fb that have actually put people in bondage with their teachings.  I won’t call any names but the truth is that their pride keeps them from being teachable. The enemy loves pride because deception is made easy when we think more highly of ourselves then we ought to think. I am not an advocate of the world’s self esteem teaching that has been adopted by the religious world.  Self esteem as defined by the world is when the world has high regards for you.  You are accepted, found to be worthy and considered competent. In other words, worldly self esteem is rooted in what others think of you. And for this reason, those who seek worldly favor will compromise to obtain and sustain the world’s approval.  Christians of this persuasion find that they are always trying to fit in and in so doing, they disobey the Lord’s will to please others.

I have purposed and established in my heart that my self esteem is found in Jesus Christ.  The Lord is the only one I need to please because I love truth. When the motives of the heart are not pure, truth will be hidden.  To be pure is to be clear, articulate, unclouded understanding.  Not confused, covered up or clandestine. When something is not pure, it is defiled.  To defile is to contaminate or to pollute.  When the heart is not pure, then Satan’s job is easy because defilement has come from within US, usually because of pride. For pride begins with what we say in our hearts and what we believe in our minds. Jeus linked pride to adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy and foolishness. (Mark 7:20-22) A proud mind is not pure because it thinks, feels and behaves in ways that suggest that we think too highly of ourselves.

Pride, self esteem and vanity deny and conceal the truth. These 3 traits will pull you away from the Lord’s will by quenching and grieving the Holy Spirit and your spirit will become blocked from God’s revelation about what is to come.  Pride is also PHONY. Nothing real about it because it puts forth a facade or an act. Pride will cause you to deny your feelings, and pretend so much that you even fool yourself.  But the devil is not fooled. He knows when you are “fronted” before him in your effort to appear to be in control, putting forth that lie when you routinely boast that you are blessed by God. As you over compensate, pride will prevent you from admitting that you need help and therfore the enemy can use your pride to block you from crucial resourses.

The proud religious person must ALWAYS appear to be knowlegeable and therefore he or she will never admit to not knowing or understanding a verse of scripture, because they are concerned that others will think them stupid and so they will even lie to cover up their ignorance or their weakness as they  hide the truth to protect their religious image. Such people are already in the hands of  a religious demon. Pride goeth before a fall!

A proud person is not wise either. They make stupid, even costly mistakes. As vanity is excessive pride, a vain person’s conceit will bring sure destruction for self deception is an open doorway to failure.  Proud people :

  • are outraged when others they that they are superior to them
  • are defensive, always justifying themselves
  • are critical in their efforts to tear down others to build themselves up
  • will hunger for prestige by seeking praise and approval from others
  • adopt the ways of those they are trying to please.
  • make EVERYTHING personal.
  • will live in the past and hunger for “the good old days.”

To the proud I  declare that the world did not create you. The world did not redeem you. When you justify yourself before men, you establish them as your lord with authority and you enable the enemy to deceive you. Remember. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

If you are too proud to admit that you have been worshipping the fake Jesus, you are trapped in a pit of religion.  There is help available.  Come join our facebook group. Either comment in this post or send a message to www.facebook.com/pamela.sheppard.911
