The Reality of a Babe in Christ

17 Mar

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

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

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

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

From the video above Pastor Pam Sheppard says:

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

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

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

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

Pastor Pam Sheppard said during a Bible Study:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

12 Feb

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard

img_0985

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FAKE Salvation in Churchianity! by Pam Sheppard

17 Oct

“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.”

CHURCHES A-Z

8 Dec

Churches A-Z

You may not see the immediate truth of what I warn you about until you have your own revelation from the Lord. The Holy Ghost may use something that I write on this subject to motivate a decision that you may have already been contemplating. Nevertheless, no one can lead you out of the visible, organized church but the Holy Ghost.

The most dangerous churches are those where the people are supportive and dedicated to good works. It is hard to leave smiling faces who provide good music and helpful projects and programs. After 25 years, I was led out. In fact, I literally had to be THROWN out when MY time came because “church” had become “comfortable.” The Bishop and other church officers had to mess with my comfort zone for me to leave. Then again, “I had a dream.” It was plain and it was clear. The Lord said, “Pam, if you don’t come out, you will be like a candle, hidden under a bed. I will not be able to use you.”

Perhaps that will be the case for you. Perhaps God will set you up to be thrown out. But if you are among the elect, you will either walk out yourself, or the Lord will allow the devil to use fake Christians led by demons within the visible church to PUSH you out. But out you MUST come in order to survive and escape the plagues that are coming upon those who still remain “in the house!!!” I warn “the lukewarm” to take heed to the words of Paul to Timothy and the words of Jesus to the church at Laodicea. Don’t get me wrong about this.

So what is the bottom line to Satan’s not so tender trap? How was the devil able to get into the church, and not only secure a seat in the back row, but actually make his way to the pulpit? Well, through a gradual infiltration that has taken a century or two, Satan finally has his pulpit position. You see, the gateway for the religious demon is “by invitation.” Invitations can be either formal or informal. Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness..

When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. When sermons are preached by wrenching scriptures out of their context for the purpose of making three points that have nothing to do with repentance, rebirth or the resurrection, an invitation is made to the religious demon. When salvation is taken out of the sovereign calling and election of God and put into the hands of man to “make a decision for Christ” then Satan moved from the backseat into the pulpit. When unsaved people came to church altars “chanting” as they sought to speak in tongues, they invited demons to enter them and countless of these folk are now tormented, almost fully  demonized.

As would be expected, the sheep followed the preaching of a distorted gospel, looking for blessings, success, and prosperity to come in the abundant life they are taught that Jesus promised them. They have been seduced into believing that “they have a right to the good life” and all that prosperity entails. Rarely do preachers even mention that serving Jesus Christ can also bring trial, tribulation, trouble and in some cases, even death. Consequently, Satan’s seat has been securred by the gradual elimination of the cross from the gospel preached in most pulpits.

Can Satan be unseated by the organized church?. How can he be? Though short lived, the bible tells us that Satan will have his day, when he officially takes his seat in the endtime synagogue, today called “THE CHURCH.” In The New Idolatry, the state of  religion is exposed. The organized church is presented as steadily  ringing true to her final name, Mystery Babylon. Furthermore, the time for repentance may already be OVER, because judgement of the household of faith has already occurred. The remnant within the church shall prevail along with the rest of the 144,000 righteous remnant. Whether an actual or a literal number, the truth is this. The way to the True Jesus is narrow and straight and the very few are those who enter in and find the real Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the only begotten Son of the Father.

My False Conversion: An Anonymous Testimony

20 Nov

MY FALSE CONVERSION

Looking back, it is no surprise that I had a false conversion. The cross of Christ, I never heard of it. No, not in church. I never heard a sermon on the message of the cross, until my first Easter sunday in a Word of Faith church. I found out that the message I did hear, was a recycled message that anybody could find online. The message was staged, and the pastor jumped down from the pulpit with a hop and stylish skip. He had, what Pam Sheppard calls a gimmick. The hop, the stylish skip, and the jumping from the pulpit, with a flourish might as well have been a stage show. The cross of Christ message the pastor gave never touched me. I sat there admiring his alligator shoes, and fancy pin stripe suit. Why? Because I was not saved then.

I thought I got saved while listening to a Benny Hinn broadcast. Benny Hinn called my name, he said ” You you are saved”. My Mom looked at me with glee, and led me into the sinners prayer. I felt a little sorry for sins, I felt good and I wondered what God would now give or do for me. The cross of Christ, the resurrection power, Godly sorrow and repentance were not found in me. It was a set-up from the devil. I had a false conversion. I had what Pam Sheppard has coined a ” counterfeit birth “.
What happened when I finally got saved for real? I did not get saved in a church. I got saved in my own bedroom. My son’s father died after being in a coma for about three days. During the period of his ill-health, and after years of abuse from him he was attending church. This man, who had been a problem to me for many years began apologizing left and right. At the time, I was what the church falsely labels backslidden. Pam Sheppard has taught us this truth, yet some refuse to receive it.
.
My friends, there is no such thing as a backslidden Christian, for as the Apostle Paul says, in the Book of Hebrews 6:4,5,6 it is impossible.
It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift to fall away and be renewed again. If they shall fall away, to renew themselves again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God AFRESH, and put him to an open shame.
So then, when you are truly saved there is no backsliding. If there is backsliding ,what we are saying is the cross of Christ, and message of the cross, did not take the first time. What kind of mess is that? Is Christ’s resurrection power so weak, that the knowledge of it fails the first time, but works if we hear it a few more times?
Anyway, there I was in sin and never saved from the get go’. Don’t get me wrong, we do grow in Christ, but if we are truly saved we do not return to total darkness and start drinking like a fish and fornicating like a champ. If we do, as I did, we were never saved in the first place.
Back to the story of how I got truly saved. My son was deathly sick and hospitalized. I realized that I was bitter towards him. I felt bad about that and begun to pray. I kept seeing a vision in front of me of the cross of Christ, I kept seeing Jesus on the cross and at first, did not know why.
As the days passed, I understood that I had never know Jesus at all. All I knew was a God who was going to give me ” stuff “. All I knew was a Jesus who was rich who would one day make me rich. Thanks to the Word of Faith church I had met ” The Fake Jesus ” who Pam exposes in one of book’s entitled the same.
ebook www.lulu.com/content/12044954

I had pledged and made an unholy alliance with Satan. My story continues. As I shared my son’s father Brett was ill and I kept seeing the cross of Christ, and Jesus on the cross before me in vision. I had been praying about my own bitterness and reluctance to visit him. I called someone who reminded me of what Jesus had said on that cross. Jesus said, ” forgive them father, they know not what they do”. The word of Christ prompted me to visit Brett Sr. It was the day he had slipped into a coma. I went to his bedside. Kissed his hand and sung his favorite church songs. Kissed him on the forehead and told him I forgave him, and forgave myself. He passed away that night.

 

I was saved in my bedroom as the days progressed. I realized what a hypocrite I had been. I was never saved. How could I have been. I had returned to drugs, fornication and the world. The message of the cross never made a dent in me, I never heard it. When I did hear it once it was from an unsaved man posing as a pastor. I had looked death in the face because my son’s father died. I knew that if I died then, I would have gone into hell. But it was not hell itself that scared me. What frightened me, was that I would be totally cut off from God. I had fancied myself a spiritual person, a person who loved God and wrote Christian poetry. Those moments that I sat in my room, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I was neither spiritual or saved. My so-called love for God was not there.
My life in church flashed before me. I had been a works salvation. A works salvation is a ” counterfeit birth “. I was churched, as Pam would say. I had been on church boards and committees and such, but I was unsaved.  I had written fancy Christian poetry, dripping with fleshy sentiment. When trouble came, I faltered from a crumbling foundation. My faith was never built on the rock. I was a wayside ” counterfeit birth”.
My bitterness flashed before me. I harbored bitterness against those who I thought had wronged me. I suffered clinical depression, the open door of unforgiveness had ushered in a demonic spirit. How on earth is one saved and still having bouts of depression? Where is the power of the cross in that? I was a liar and a fake, the God I thought I loved was just then drawing me to him in my bedroom. I cried, and I cried and I repented in those tears. As I lay in my bed the Lord bought me to Isaiah 53. Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? I had never believed the report that Jesus Christ of Nazareth died on the cross, that gruesome death but rose in the flesh. I never understood myself to be a wretched sinner. I had never understood, that this man Jesus, who was man and God in the flesh had to die in order for me to be saved.
I never knew that the sacrifice of his very life was needed to cleanse. What price can you put on a life? What price can you put on the life of the Son of God. As I read through Isaiah 53 and learned of the suffering servant, my joy became full. I knew why the Lord drew me to him by showing me a constant vision of Jesus on the cross. The work that was done on the cross proved the complete power of God which no devil can match. Christ was dead but now alive in the flesh. The disciples had seen and believed this 2000 years ago, and I was seeing  and believing  it for the first time. And it was the same power that lifted Jesus from the cross that was now lifting me up.
I believed the report that day. I was grateful for what Christ had done on the cross, for me and for those who would believe on him. I was grateful for his mercy. I was happy and besides myself with joy. God had drawn me. His love was clear to me. My friends, the agony of that cross and the suffering it took to save me was clear. I loved the Lord God for his eternal kindness and saving grace. I deserved nothing, but God through Christ had given me all I will ever need. So then, in my bedroom, after years of church, I was finally saved.
I receive and trust every word that Pamela Sheppard teaches. For she speaks truth, the organized church is a conglomerate of condemned  buildings.

David Wilkerson: An Endtime Prophet

DAVID WILKERSON: AN ENDTIME PROPHET

If you click the blue  title link above, you will hear a  short clip of a very powerful message of this man of God.

I have been in ministry for 30 years.  I have listened to countless preachers and read many of their books.  The one who opened my eyes to the condition of the endtime church was the late David Wilkerson. It has been at least 20 years since I first became aware of Dave’s teachings about the apostate church. Once the Lord led me out, I wondered why Dave stayed.  I guess he loved Her too much.  The organized church can be very seductive.

I call David an endtime prophet because in his book “America’s Last Call,” he predicted the fall of the World Trade Center about at least 10 years before it occurred.

Certainly I am speculating for I will not know for sure in this lifetime, but I have a sense that the prophet crashed into a mac truck in the spring of this year  because “he knew too much” and he made a big  mistake with God by  not acting  upon  what he knew by revelation.   David Wilkerson  should have “Come Out of Her,” and not continually tried to “preach Her into repentance.” The organized church will NOT repent.  Too much is at stake.  Too much money and power to lose.

To know more why I believe that the church is a dangerous place in this hour, you need one or more  of my 6 books.  However, on this particular subject matter, it is a toss-up between “Come Out of Her, God’s People and the New Idolatry.

What the Lord has shown me is that the day of repentance for the organized church is over because “He has already judged her.”  As such, she has become a dwelling place of demons, filled with curses and plagues.  David was taken down by sudden, accidental death that I am sure could have been avoided. I have been warned that if I go back, consider myself “Lot’s wife.”

Deliverance Ministry and the Need for Repentance

12 Nov

It took more than two decades for me to discover that the enemy had called me into deliverance ministry.

But God revealed it to me in recent years.  Some may think that perhaps I was fooled and that once again, the religious spirit  assigned to me sent me yet another counterfeit message. Those who practice deliverance  would remind me that Satan does not cast out devils or his kingdom would not stand.  And yes, I would agree.

 However, I am inclined to believe that it was the Lord, for one simple reason.

I had begun to notice over time, that “those who manifested the most were the captives who never really got delivered.”   By “manifest,”I am referring to coughing, vomiting, growling, screaming, blasphemous utterances, and the like.

The truth is that “demons love to manifest.” Its a neat one of those “kill to birds with one stone,” kind of trick.  The deliverance worker gets puffed up and the captives is fooled that he or she has been set free.  What I have found is that true and complete deliverance is contingent upon the resistance of pride through
repentance.

I understand now why the Lord Jesus Christ declared that John the Baptist was the greatest born among men. With the exception of the Lord’s own mission of bringing salvation to the world, John the Baptist’s mission was the most important, as the only way to rebirth is through repentance. No one can come to the Father except by Jesus. Even so, no one can come to Jesus except through John’s message of repentance.

 In spite of the fact that John the Baptist did not heal, nor did he cast out devils, John’s ministry was indeed the doorway to the supernatural. Through the preaching of repentance and through baptizing the sinner in water, John’s job was to prepare the way for the Lord to the sinner. Only through repentance and
baptism in water is the sinner prepared to receive the Lord. The Charismatics have amplified the meaning of repentance as a “change of mind” or
a “turning in another direction.” However, the repentance that saves is to
experience godly sorrow. Godly sorrow is an experience of the soul’s grief for
having no worthiness to approach God on one’s own merit.

 It should not be mistaken for human shame or guilt due to wrong doing. The truth is that 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.” People in the world repent every day for this sin or that sin, yet without the leading of the Holy Ghost, they will not repent of being in the depths of their soul, “an alienated sinner, without God in the world.”

  Godly sorrow of this kind is a deeply emotional experience where the sinner is brought face to face with his own inner darkness. It is the dark night 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.”

Brokenness is an important aspect of  achieving repentance toward God. When we are broken, we become ready to be forgiven for our sins and to be sanctified or set apart for His use. Brokenness is symbolized in the baptism in water, in that “the Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)

The brokenness of repentance feels like someone came into the room of our lives and suddenly turned the light switch on and exposed us. Jesus said that unless a seed
falls to the ground and dies, it cannot become what it was destined to be, and
that is “a child of God and a son of God.” We cannot cry out “Abba, Father” until we become aware in our hearts how our sin has separated us from Him and that the Lord’s Jesus Christ’s sacrifice at the cross has brought us into right relationship with Him.

Repentance is a walk of faith and humility into the valley of brokenness. Unless we take this walk, we are too rigid and hard to be molded in the hand of God. More than just simply being powerless before God, repentance leads to a brokenness before Him where we have been made to see our sins as God sees them. Repentance is the process whereby we have come to realize deep within, that our sins have hurt the Father. Only then, does the sinner receive salvation.

There are many who need deliverance from deliverance ministries.  I know because those who contact me for deliverance have generally been involved with at least two or more deliverance ministries before they find me on the web.  They come armed with information about the Jezebel spirit, ancestral curses, and the like.  Most of the time, their personal issues need to be dealt with before even considering casting out ONE demon.  Most often, that issue is a need for repentance and brokenness through confronting personal pride and rebellion.  To know more, you need “The New Idolatry.”

Here is a short quote:

“What I am finding is that deliverance workers are using the demonic realm as a potential proof that the spiritual dimension exists.  For as demons surface and blaspheme God, such manifestations are suggestive of God’s own reality.  This too is a perversion of true faith.  The bible says that we believe in God BY FAITH, simply because HE IS, and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  We are not to believe in God because we believe in the existence of the devil.  For the devil to have to be  convincing sin to the world that God exists is an outrage and an insult to the Almighty One, the Creator of Satan. Since when does the creature validate His Maker??? Satan can only do what God allows him to do.  Satan himself is a mere creature, not the Creator.” (pg 124)

Deliverance Ministry and the Need for Repentance

12 Nov

It took more than two decades for me to discover that the enemy had called me into deliverance ministry.

But God revealed it to me in recent years.  Some may think that perhaps I was fooled and that once again, the religious spirit  assigned to me sent me yet another counterfeit message. Those who practice deliverance  would remind me that Satan does not cast out devils or his kingdom would not stand.  And yes, I would agree.

 However, I am inclined to believe that it was the Lord, for one simple reason.

I had begun to notice over time, that “those who manifested the most were the captives who never really got delivered.”   By “manifest,”I am referring to coughing, vomiting, growling, screaming, blasphemous utterances, and the like.

The truth is that “demons love to manifest.” Its a neat one of those “kill to birds with one stone,” kind of trick.  The deliverance worker gets puffed up and the captives is fooled that he or she has been set free.  What I have found is that true and complete deliverance is contingent upon the resistance of pride through
repentance.

I understand now why the Lord Jesus Christ declared that John the Baptist was the greatest born among men. With the exception of the Lord’s own mission of bringing salvation to the world, John the Baptist’s mission was the most important, as the only way to rebirth is through repentance. No one can come to the Father except by Jesus. Even so, no one can come to Jesus except through John’s message of repentance.

 In spite of the fact that John the Baptist did not heal, nor did he cast out devils, John’s ministry was indeed the doorway to the supernatural. Through the preaching of repentance and through baptizing the sinner in water, John’s job was to prepare the way for the Lord to the sinner. Only through repentance and
baptism in water is the sinner prepared to receive the Lord. The Charismatics have amplified the meaning of repentance as a “change of mind” or
a “turning in another direction.” However, the repentance that saves is to
experience godly sorrow. Godly sorrow is an experience of the soul’s grief for
having no worthiness to approach God on one’s own merit.

 It should not be mistaken for human shame or guilt due to wrong doing. The truth is that 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.” People in the world repent every day for this sin or that sin, yet without the leading of the Holy Ghost, they will not repent of being in the depths of their soul, “an alienated sinner, without God in the world.”

HOW WE SET CAPTIVES FREE AT SHEPPARD'S COUNSELING CENTER

8 Nov

How We Set Captives FREE at SCC

The main objective of Christian counseling is to set captives free.

At Sheppard’ Counseling Center, the most important tool in the process is actually  the captive.  For example, if during the assessment process, the captive reveals that his or her faith is weak, or that there are major issues of doubt and un-belief, then a major objective of the assessment phase would be to build up the client’s faith.  The treatment plan  lists the problems, hindrances in the situation, the goals, objectives and the strategies toward building the captive’s faith.  We also consider whether or not the captive has a strong network system of Christian elders who can support the captive. Therefore, we employ a cadre of mentors or “ministers” for support and encouragement.

The Christian client today is one who has been duped by the organize church into easy believism. They have repeated a sinner’s prayer, acknowledged that they have accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts, and declared to be saved or born again.  What has happened is that the fake Jesus answered their invitation. They have worshipped Him through prayer meetings, bible studies, song and dance, yet they are not saved.  They don’t know it but the enemy DOES. Therefore, the weapons of spiritual warfare do not work for them.

Without the weapons that redemption affords: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the girdles of truth, the feet shod with the gospel of peace and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, the captive has to rely on a Christian counselor or minister who is truly saved—one who can successfully work the spiritual weapons against principalities and powers.

Even so, we have found that the captives’ free will is their best weapon.  So in deliverance counseling and mentoring, we encourage the captive to fight in cold blood.  From a Christian perspective, our role is akin to a trainer who prepares  a prizefighter for a boxing match.  As spiritual trainers, we are in the captive’s corner, giving specific instructions as to how to win the fight. The captive takes our instructions, does all that he or she can do, and when the time is right, we step in and finish the fight by casting out demons and commanding fallen angels to go about somebody elses business.

It has been our experience, that until captives use their own free will to revoke the invitation that they made to the fake Jesus, their psychic doorways or chakras will remain open, and demons will have unhindered access to their souls and spirits.  So we focus on closing those gateways by truth.  If the captive does not fight the process, victory is assured.

Since December 2002, we have discovered an astounding statistic.  At least 95% of the churchgoing captives  of Sheppard’s Counseling Center–about 300 professing Christians— did not understand either sin, repentance or the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  They do not know that they received the fake Jesus. 

Consequently, they worship whom they do not know.

This is an extremely appalling, pervasive condition, of epidemic proportions within the worldwide church.  Since we have counseled people in Australia, South Africa, England, Japan, Canada, the Caribbean and from at least 1/3 of the United States, the problem is the same.  An imposter god is being worshipped as if he is the Lord Almighty.  No wonder Jesus warned that in there would be people who would call Him “Lord,” and He will say “I NEVER knew you.”

As you read “Faces of the Religious Demon, you will find that each face or profile offers new insights and challenges.  You the reader will learn how any ground obtained by spirit entities , no matter how small or seemingly insignificant is “GROUND POSSESSED,” even though a captive himself may have no obvious manifestation of total possession.  Your eyes will also be opened to realize that even the slightest of ground claimed by the enemy can be so debilitating and even toxic to spiritual growth and empowerment, what is the point of quibbling over terms and inches?!” For if a demon has only one inch of territory, it will seem like a mile to a tormented captives.
