Satan Is Not EVERYwhere! Yet He Knows Who You Are!

22 Jun

Certainly we need to know God. But we also need to know the wiles, tricks and strategies of the devil.

Preparing For End-Times

A very common error of the people of God and Satan’s people , is that the devil  can only be in one place at a time. Let me make it clear.  Satan cannot be in America, Africa, England and China, all at once. Actually, here are only  a few people in the bible who met Satan face to face: Eve, Jesus Christ of Nazareth,  Peter, Ananias, and perhaps Paul and possibly, Judas. As an aside, Judas was never at any time a believer, not a child of God, EVER. So he probably met Satan face to face.

You may think that you have met Satan, but you are not important enough for him to contact you personally. Satan likes to give us the impression that he is “everywhere’. The truth is that he knows us  because of his messengers–fallen angels and demons—  who ARE everywhere.  These are the principalities and powers…

The Secret Behind “Slain in the Spirit” Revealed!

11 Jun

Untold millions have fallen “slain in the spirit.” DOES THAT INCLUDE YOU? If so, the enemy has been preparing you to be able to hear his voice on his day of mass delusion.

Preparing For End-Times

It was almost four decades ago when I first witnessed the  “slain in the spirit” phenomena in 1979. It has become a common manifestation for decades, first manifested publicly  at least a century ago.  So ministers have continued to lay hands on countless millions of unsuspecting, naïve believers in order that they might   receive what is colloquially known as “an impartation.”

When the people  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 own Christian client contacts  had been 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,

My Personal Experience With Tongues

11 Jun

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

When posting on facebook on this hot topic about 6 years ago,  I recall that the responses were clearly impulsive, sudden argumentative  reactions of tongue talkers taken aback and even outraged by my position on this subject. It was as if the commentators did not even give themselves time to think and meditate on my post before responding. I was shocked. Readers actually sat down in the early morning hours —took time away from their busy schedules— to post quite a few rather lengthy rebuttals, as if it was a major sin to even question tongue speaking.  Thee commentators seemed irrational in their protest, as if themselves, under the influence of evil spirits.

Tongues is certainly a volatile issue, to put it mildly. Nevertheless, it seems that I may have “touched on something” here.  So I wonder, “why are the demons so upset, simply because I am obeying the spirit by “trying everything spiritual, including “tongues”?”  I have personally confronted the religious demon on several occasions. I have even cast out various demons with much success. I have written several books that  deal with unveiling Satan’s wiles and strategies, so my work and agenda is not new to the enemy. In fact, it has been proven to me that demons can recall every sentence on each page of all 8 of my books–a feat that is impossible even for me, the author of them. I have to search the table of contents to find what I am looking for.

Perhaps I did not get attacked for writing books, because tongues, though mentioned, is not the primary emphasis of the book. As I reviewed several commentaries, it appears that when I indicated that I had reservations about tongues for two decades, perhaps I did not make myself clear. You need to know that I did not originally question the tongues that others spoke, but only my own “tongue.” Nor did I mean that I originally believed that tongues was from the devil.

In truth, I once loved to speak in tongues. It certainly did I  sooth my flesh. In that regard, speaking in tongues is self edifying and self gratifying. I am a conversationalist—a preacher and a teacher of the word of God as well— so I tend to be articulate.. Even so, in tongues, I can utter non-stop for hours. You need to be aware that chanting, transcendental meditation and yoga have the same pleasant and even ecstatic effects upon the flesh.

Laboratory research has proven that tongues and other forms of mental passivity give the frontal lobe of the brain a real rest. This is because the mind is literally unfruitful when tongues is uttered, even more unfruitful than the state of sleep. Our minds work pretty well during sleep, as evidenced by the quality of our dream life. However, when I speak in tongues, all thinking actually stops until I cease from speaking. Even if I were to try to babble out something, my mind would be thinking of the next babbling sound to utter.

However, not so with tongues. All thought comes to an end as the utterances roll off of the tongue like water. Not at all concerned until recently about the legitimacy of the overall tongues movement in our time, my original concern was totally personal. Simply put, I questioned whether or not I myself had received tongues in the correct spiritual manner.

To explain further, I wondered why tongues did not “come upon me” as I witnessed the speaking in tongues of others and along the same lines, I wondered why I seemed to have so much control over my own utterances. I spoke tongues regularly, but in my own personal life, I never attributed my spiritual growth to it. Actually, I personally found effects upon my flesh. Rather, correction and chastisement of fires of refinement as opposed no spiritual benefit to it other than its soothing I have grown in Christ by submitting myself to the Holy Ghost, groomed and strengthened in the to uttering by the fires of a prayer language.

A particular incident is noteworthy. The year was 1985. I was travelling on a narrow, country road in upstate New York on a very cold, bright and sunny winter morning. Since it was bitter cold, I had the heat blasting— but on top of that, the sun was shining directly on me through the car windows, in all of its brightness. I was very warm but not sweating. Then there was the sound of the tires on the road that made a repetitive sound every few seconds–kerplunk, kerplunk, kerplunk.

As a former student and practitioner of relaxation therapy, aka hypnosis,  I was trained to impart the imagination and visualization of heat accompanied by a monotonous tone of a hypnotic  voice  as mesmerizing tools to “put a person under.” In short, I became hypnotized by the heat and the repetitive sounds of the tires on the road. While in an altered state of consciousness, I heard a hypnotic voice  repeat, “follow that car.” I also felt  a push forward, as though attempting  to take action and  follow the car that came from behind and passed me .  What transpired is that an  invisible being had compelled  me to cross the solid line and kill myself while I was in a trance.I was about to obey that voice when my hands gripped so tight on the steering wheel that I couldn’t move them if I wanted to. My hands actually froze—locked tightly so that all I could do was drive straight ahead. My eyes were opened the entire time and I saw it all, yet I was hypnotized.

Suddenly, as I awoke out of the trance, a huge truck whizzed right by me in the opposite lane. I realized then, that if I had followed the car, I would not have been alive today to write about this. I would have crashed head on into that truck. There were about 5 cars behind the truck as well. Others would have certainly died that day. When I got home, I spoke to a close “significant other” who rather casually remarked, “as I was sitting at my desk today, I saw a vision of you. You were riding in a car and the sun was shining very brightly on you. I didn’t know what was going on so I just “prayed in tongues.”

Consequently, for 20 years, this incident was my main proof that tongues was a “prayer language.” I found a supportive scripture taken “out of context” in Romans 8:26 as my so-called “confirmation”, namely, that we know not what to pray for as we ought and that the Holy Ghost prays the perfect will of God for us. Yet I ignored the rest of that scripture, namely, that the Holy Ghost does this with groanings, and not with tongues. The scripture clearly states that the groanings “ARE NOT UTTERED.” Speaking in tongues is AN UTTERANCE, so I believe we are in error when we stretch Romans 8:26 in order to confirm that tongues is a “prayer language.”.

So that you know, the enemy is famous in the use of what Christians call “confirmation,”—a subject of a future article. . Within my own congregation, I witnessed how tongues spontaneously came upon others and how “ecstatic” the experience was for them. In my case, it was neither spontaneous nor ecstatic, and I wondered if “it should be.” On the contrary, when I spoke in tongues, it was rather “conversational, and “though it felt good, I rarely became ecstatic or emotional. I also noted that among the tongue talkers within the congregation that I pastored, I could find no fruits of the spirit. In fact, some church members were seriously demonized, others suffered from mental illness. In short, every Christian drug addict among us were prolific in the speaking in tongues.

 I perceived a problem with that.

Since I began to take a serious look at tongues in 2007, I decided to temporarily stop speaking in tongues until I was assured. Strangely enough,   although I  have  successfully restrained myself from speaking in it for 10 years, there are rare occasions  when I literally have to strengthen my will power against blurting out tongues at isolated times during a day. On occasion, I could  feel it in me, as  a slightly compulsive and impulsive desire to literally “cut loose” with it.

This “phenomena” had not occurred since I first spoke in tongues in 1983, as I always uttered by the desire of my own will. Actually I was normally rather neutral about it. Now that I have both questioned it and refused to utter, sometimes  I momentarily experience  a strong urge to speak in tongues, which I fight. This is NOT a comfortable feeling. I can hear you tongue talkers now, screaming at me through the airways, “you are grieving and quenching the Holy Ghost, Pam. Give in to your compulsion and “let it roll!!!” Well,  I vowed that until I know without a shadow of a doubt that the tongues that I speak is of God, I will not speak in tongues.  Ten years have passed.  The compulsion pressured me less, yet I suspect it is not fully extinguished. Even so,   I do not yield to it. For when the compulsion comes, all that bursts through my mouth is about 10 seconds of “Ba,ba, ba, ba,ba” By the way, I did some research and discovered that Satan’s followers affectionately call him “Ba Ba” in a similar way that we call our natural father’s “Daddy.” in my memory, every tongue talker that I have heard will say “Ba Ba!!!!!”

Another problem that caused me to “raise my eyebrow” is that the majority of people in the  church I once pastored  and those I met from other churches who spoke in tongues bore no spiritual fruit of holiness. I relate to the words of James where he questioned, “how can bitter and sweet waters come out of the same cistern?” For example, in my own congregation as well as those known to me as members of word of faith and pentecostal churches, I simply could not understand how people who were obviously hypocritical, legalistic and even mean-spirited could be so prolific in a language inspired by “the Holy Ghost.” Isn’t the Holy Ghost grieved and quenched by sin?

Good question. Then too, if a person does not walk in love, Paul explains that tongues are useless. (1Corin 13) Singling out no person other than myself, as a single Christian woman, fornication remained a stronghold for me as a babe in Christ. Like the Corinthians, I also ignorantly carried over practices from “the dumb idols” of occultism for quite a few years, so when Paul warned the Corinthians to flee fornication, he spoke to me also. Yet, even at the weakest and most compromised stage of my own spiritual walk, I consistently remained fluent in tongues.

So, until 2007, I had no suspicion  that tongues could be “of the devil.” Even so, I would not be the first to share such a supposition. Tongue talkers have been accused of “having a demon” by countless professing Christians and non-Christian. So what is going on “today?” In terms of “what is going on in my life today, this week, I cast out 8 Hindu deities from one former yoga practitioner who is a Christian: Shiva, Hakini, Savashiva, Isha, Vahni, Vishnu, Rakini and Brahma in the name and by the authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Practically each of these demons came out ranting at me using its captive to speak in tongues—a very similar sound to the tongues that I have heard uttered among those who profess to be speaking “a prayer language.”

Not that I believe this, but for the sake of  argument from a “devil’s advocate” position,  suppose there is a true tongue spoken and interpreted today and I am simply one of millions who  received tongues in the wrong way.  I have had a lot in common with the Corinthians for I too  unknowingly worshipped at the altar of pagan gods, aka demons. Since the Corinthians were saved, Paul did not suggest that demons be cast out of them but only that they “interpret.” If no interpretation, then no speaking. This is simple. It has been 10 years of no tongue utterance on my behalf and I have had no demons cast from me. The Apostle Paul suggested that the person who speaks in tongues should also seek to interpret. I sought to interpret for 25 years and my prayer was never answered. . Therefore,  I heed Paul’s counsel and I simply will not speak in tongues without an interpreter. Actually, I will never again speak in tongues because I suspect that tongues spoken in the last century are demonic.

Tongues and Mental Health

I belong to a very small, rather elite group of professional therapists who used counseling to set people free from demons.  One of those people was Kurt Koch from Germany.  I was reading his book published in 1973 where he presented a discussion, comparing real mental illness to  being demonized.  Tongues  entered into the discussion as a sign of possession!

There is a lot to learn from Koch.  Sure, he was an “I accept Jesus” person, yet he had a lot of cases and so his findings are important.  What gets me is the connection he makes to tongues as a sign of being demonized.  Here are the words of Koch:

The greatest difference, however, between psychosis (mental illness) and occult subjection is the ability of a possessed person to speak in a foreign language while in a state of trance. This is not to be confused with genuine glossolalia, a gift of the Holy Spirit. It is rather a demonic counterpart to speaking in tongues. I know of both witch doctors and spiritistic mediums who are able to speak in foreign languages while in ecstasies or in a trance. I can give you an example of this from Australia. A missionary friend of mine with whom I once worked, told me of an incident he knew about where six tribal witch doctors, following a long ceremonious  procedure, finally began to speak in foreign languages with voices not their own. If I had the time I could go on to describe further characteristic differences between psychoses and possession. The conflict one meets with possessed people involve realms which transcend rational thought and understanding.

Finally, I personally believe that tongues have ceased.  The reason I believe that all tongues spoken today is a counterfeit is based on simple logic and basic commonsense. I found that  as I conducted research for the book “the fake Jesus,”  tongues actually DID cease as Paul told the Corinthians that they would.  History reveals that tongues ceased for 19 centuries. Think about it. No Christian needed or ever heard of “a prayer language” for 1900 years!!!!!.

Why did tongues cease?

Well, simply put,  its purpose had been fulfilled.

Here is a quote from the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.

“God Himself brought forth many languages to hinder the building of the tower of Babel. In Genesis 11, we read that because of the people’s rebellion, God confused the language of all the earth so that the people would not be able to understand each other’s speech, How ironic and counter-rebellious on the part of Maitreya. As Satan’s representative of endtimes, Maitreya plans to do just the opposite in Mystery Babylon, which includes the organized church.  Maitreya’s goal is to cause all who speak in different tongues to hear him in ONE tongue. This is a complete reversal of God’s actions to hinder the tower of Babel. This is blasphemy to the nth degree.  Anyone who does not close the door to self-induced passivity is at risk of becoming reprobate.”

Seeking Deliverance?

27 May


By Pastor Pam Sheppard
Spiritual torment is a sign that if you believe you are born again, you are not, and you are the victim of a false conversion. In such cases, torment can be considered a blessing because it will wake you up to realize that God does not give a spirit of fear or torment, but His goal is that you have a sound mind.

So it stands to reason if your intrusive, even blasphemous thought, the accusing, condemning voices and the horrendous and shameful visions did not come from God, you know they did not origin with you, so the culprit has to be evil Spirits from Satan and from the spirit of the Antichrist.

RESCUE Deliverance Ministry is unique because we do not confront evil spirits until you have been strengthened with might in your inner man. So our strategy will prepare you to retrieve the  stolen  ground inch by inch, progressively and gradually.  After all, it is rare that the enemy took the ground suddenly.  It may seem so because you were not aware of the gradual and progressive manner the enemy infiltrated and begin stealing your soul, inch by inch.  Then one day it will seem as if he took  charge suddenly and quickly while you were not watching.

We warn those we help that on occasion, situations may appear to turn worse as you attempt to recover.  Nevertheless, if you  persist,  you  shall witness the adversary steadily losing his power. Your symptoms will  progressively decrease as the territory is increasingly regained. You will notice that your  mind, with its memory, imagination and reasoning powers, gradually becoming free so that you can use it again. But we warn you, not to become complacent and cease to fight to the end. In other words, just because your symptoms have abated does not mean you can relax.  For if you do so, you will provide  evil spirits with an opening and an advantage to  re-design his attack in the near future.

  Consequently, we advise you to continue to restore your control over your will power  until you are completely free.  Should you  stand on the foundation of the Lord’s victory of the cross and exercise your  mind to resist the enemy’s conditioning, you shall soon be delivered completely. You  shall become master of your  own mental life.

  1. What was stolen from you shall be restored.
  2. Your spiritual growth will be much deeper that what you originally had.
  3. No longer passive of mind, you will master self control, a fruit of the spirit, along with a much greater sense of peace than you had experienced in the past.
  4. If you have had a false conversion, now you have overcome all demonic hindrances  to being genuinely born again.

So let’s get started today.  Call 1-888-818-1117 or complete the contact form below.

Is Psychology “Biblical?”

16 May

Counseling is a way to uncover the truth. Truth sets captives free and puts evil spirits on the run. if you are not looking for a quick fix because you desire lasting freedom, then call 1-888-818-1117 or complete the contact form at the bottom of the post.

Preparing For End-Times

Consider the following quote from the late Dave Hunt, a prolific Christian writer, found  in his book entitled “”Psychology and the Church:”

COUNSELING2.pngChristian psychology is an attempted marriage of the Bible to theories of the atheistic inventors of psychology (who were committed not to righteousness but to unrighteousness). It is worse than trying to mix oil and water; it is the attempt to blend the Word of God with atheism and occultism. This is impossible to do honestly. Even “Christian psychologists” themselves admit they can’t quite find a way to put that mixture together. Yet no one seems to care that the very term “Christian psychology” is a deceit. After trying for decades to mix this devil’s brew, Gary Collins admitted: “It is too early to answer decisively if psychology and Christianity can be integrated.” 14 Then why keep trying? What is the motive? Why is anyone attempting this impossible…

What Are the Ascended Masters After? Part 2

15 May

By Pastor Pam

 

Never, at any stage in history, has the scene been so fully set for the manipulation of a deception of global proportions through the work  of these fallen angels who are called  ascended masters. 

For the situation in which we find ourselves today is a  spiritual nightmare of immeasurable proportions.  It is more wacked out than the most imaginative science fiction novel. Through entering into an altered state of consciousness through yoga, TM, channeling, chanting, drugs, hypnosis, babbling in tongues, slain in the spirit, holy laughter  and such,  scores of people of all ages have opened their psychic centers or chakras to communicate with these  spirit-entities. The question is: Why?

The fallen angel called Mother Mary is over the Catholic Church and occult healing ministries while St. Germain’s specific part of the agenda is connected to freemasonry and the USA.  Ashtar seems to focus on the planned “evacuation” and Jesus Sananda Immanuel has already fulfilled his part of the assignment.  The organized church has become a dwelling place of religious demons under his command.  The one to watch is the ascended master called Maitreya, “the Master of Masters.”

Although he is called “the Christ,” Maitreya has primarily concentrated his efforts towards eastern religions and new age occultism, relegating the “Christian” emphasis into the hands of Sananda and Mother Mary. What Maitreya and ALL of them intend to prove is that Satan is god.  That is the bottom line.  God has 3 main attributes that no human being or angel has: He knows all, is all powerful, and is everywhere present.  Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent.  To be God, Satan would have to pull off this grand hoax.

So the plan is simple once you understand the motive. Man has now opened his latent psychic abilities through the ASC to hear from these entities.  Maitreya intends to pull off the grand hoax that he is the son of god.  So, I suspect that the religious demons assigned to each person on earth shall telepathically  send the exact same message at the exact same time, making it look like Maitreya, the son of god, and Sananda, the false prophet in their trinity with Satan, are God Almighty. The people will then be convinced to receive the Anti-Christ as God.

Whatever conclusion one reaches, the deception is clearly of satanic origin because of the occultic and anti-christian direction of the agenda.  From alien encounters  and genetic engineering, to reports of sexual copulation with  churchgoing women,  the entire charade is being masterminded by Satan in opposition to God, as part of a world wide establishment   of the enemy’s  delusion of having his  ‘kingdom’ on earth.”

The altered state of consciousness has  brought men and women into contact with fallen angels. It is all part of a well thought out plan  that has already taken over the organized church. Unless the people run out of these churches like bats let out of hell,  many will doubtless fall away, and the faith of many will be tested.

My goal is to  intelligently warn and  inform the elect of God,  so that they will not be overtaken by the element of surprise.  Secondly, it is my task to close down the psychic gateways that have been opened among God’s people and restore captives through sound counsel. Finally, I also strive  to edify the true Body to walk in the faith that the all powerful hand of God will prevail.

To know more about these matters, you need 4 of my six books.  “Faces of the Religious Demon, Come Out of Her, God’s People, The Fake Jesus and the New Idolatry. For books you can  CLICK HERE  to get a copy.

WHAT ARE THE ASCENDED MASTERS AFTER Part 1

14 May

Pastor Pam wrote:

It was not until the year 2006 that I had even heard the term ascended masters. I had been watching  a video clip of Cindy Trimm.  I did not know very much about her ministry, only that she was a friend of Juanita Bynum.  So to learn what she was all about, I visited her website.  The first thing I discovered was that she had a teacher’s ministry which strongly emphasized angels.  My eyebrow raised. 

Then I opened up another video clip and I was stunned, to say the least, as I watched hundreds of congregants simultaneously fall on top of each other, slain in the spirit like waves across the entire building.  I paid  attention to Trimm’s words at the moment that hundreds fell.  She proclaimed, “I thank you Father, that the spirit of the Ashtar has fallen upon the people.”

Troubled by the name “Ashtar,” I searched the scriptures and found the name of an old testament idol called “Ashteroth.”  Once led to pursue additional research, I googled “Ashtar.”  Shocked that a Christian evangelist would call on Ashtar in a prayer “to Father,” moments before almost the entire congregation was on the floor in a stupor, a google search opened the door to a plethora of occult websites dedicated to uplifting the teachings of cosmic beings that are referred to as “ascended” masters.

The dots are connected between the occult and the organized church.

I found that there are at least 50 ascended masters, perhaps even more.  Fifteen of them are ranked as primary players—fallen angels who first claimed to be aliens, sent to earth to prepare for the advent of a one world religon and to pave the way for the rule of the Anti-Christ.  Within my book, “the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” I present a detailed study of the top 5: Ashtar, Jesus Sananda Immanuel, Mother Mary, St. Germain and Maitreya.

As the leader, Maitreya holds the title of “Master of Masters.”

Through my research, I found that ET’s, aka aliens is who Ashtar first said that he was.  Ashtar made his first appearance to a human being of our generation in the early 50’s —a military man,  Col George Van Tassel, to warn this country about the misuse of atomic energy.  Eventually, Ashtar began to call himself “an ascended master.”

In “the Fake Jesus,” to figure out what these fallen angels are after, I searched for what they have been telling their occult followers.  Ashtar promises them that he and his command are prepared to evacuate and relocate our entire earth’s population to various “Mother Ships” in the heavens.  I happen to wonder where was Ashtar when all but 8 of the world’s inhabitants went down in the flood.

In the last few years, Ashtar has received worldwide support from international celebrity and talk show hostess Oprah Winfrey as she supports and even teaches from the occult book called “A New Earth.”The sheer magnitude surrounding the fact that Oprah is a teacher and a disciple of the author of this book speaks volumes.

It seems that the enemy is planning a fake rapture.

IS POSITIVE THINKING BIBLICAL?

12 May

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7

What interpretation do you have about this verse? I was taught that this verse spoke on how I can shape my reality by what I think, that our thoughts have the power to alter our lives, and that we can make ourselves what we want to be.

But does this verse really teach about the power of our thoughts?

While detoxing from religion, one of the main things I learned  is that It’s important at all times to consider the context of a bible verse. Some factors to look into when reading the bible is  to consider who is the target audience and whether or not  the writer was speaking (referring) to someone specific . To assume that every verse written is personally directed to you is a dangerous way of reading the bible.

It’s also good to have an idea of the historical & cultural context of a particular verse. The question to ask is whether or not the passage of scripture is relevant to present day living.

Let’s look at the verse in relation to the rest of the chapter.

Proverbs 23:1-8

1. When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
2 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.
3 Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
6 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
8 The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

The writer was advising someone that even though this person says “Eat & drink”, be careful not to assume that he is a generous man.  For the words coming out of his mouth may not match what’s in his heart.  why?  because “his heart is not with thee”.

Do not be fooled by the words and generous acts of someone, If  the generosity doesn’t come from the heart, then he is not a generous person. He acts a certain way because he has evil motives.

So within the context of scripture, it becomes clear that the verse has nothing to do with positive thinking or the power of the mind.  Rather, it is addressing hypocrisy. Simply put, people can outwardly act a certain way but their true character is what is in their heart.

So where did this verse get linked to power of thought?

In 1903 a book titled “As a man thinketh” was published by the author James Allen.
download (2)
James Allen was a British philosophical writer and considered a pioneer of the self-help movement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. His best known work is the book “As a Man Thinketh” which is likely based on the Biblical verse Proverbs 23:7 which states: “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Some quotes from his book

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”

“As a being of Power, Intelligence, and Love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills.”

“If he will link cause and effect by patient practice and investigation….. As a means of obtaining that knowledge of himself. “He that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”; for only by patience, practice, and ceaseless importunity can a man enter the Door of the Temple of Knowledge.”

The book primarily teaches that man is self-sufficient to transform his situations, its starts in the mind and everything else follows.

One of the deceptions that is rampant is believing everything that comes from the devil must have a negative connotation to it. If a teaching is meant to help you become better, the assumption is that there’s no way it came from the devil, based upon a belief  that the devil doesn’t want you to be the best you can be! This is not true! The devil is the author of many positive teachings that might even produce some beneficial  effects in your life. Nevertheless, that’s a part of the trap,—to make you believe you are embracing something great when you are actually been set up to be demonized.

The church has joined in teaching the power of positive thinking, notably Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes to name a few; many ministers cherry pick verses to back this false doctrine by teaching that  if people remain positive and grateful,  their situations will change for the better.

It’s alarming that the church has endorsed a teaching that originates from ripping Proverbs 23:7 completely out of context.

By their fruits, you shall know them

What fruits come from this teaching?

It denies people the opportunity to listen to the gospel – instead of people listening to the true gospel of Jesus Christ; they go to church to receive a pep talk telling them that even though they are facing challenges, they can turn it around. How will people know the gospel when they are not even hearing it to begin with? And when they do hear the gospel, it’s a different version that asks them to accept Jesus into their heart.

People are being taught techniques on how to change their thinking from negative to positive with the help of certain activities such as meditation – a practice that facilitates entrance into an altered state of consciousness (ASC). An altered state causes peoples’ chakras to be open & for demons to enter. Pastor Pam has several blogs & videos teaching on how Christians have been deceived into opening their chakras and getting demonized, you can read more on this at:-

Christians Who Open the 7 Chakras Are Demonized!

Also the topic is covered extensively in the book “The Church of the Endtime Zombies”. The link for the paperback & e-book are listed below.

This teaching is also very focused on self & that the power to change is inside of you. Romans 3:23 states that all have fallen short, so we don’t have the power to make ourselves clean from sin, we cannot cause out spirits to be born again by positive thinking. There are some changes people can make in their lives for the better but being born again is something that only the Holy Spirit can do.

This belief in the unregenerated self has given rise to people referring to themselves as “I AM” with views that since humans are made in the image of God,  that we are little gods, another false teaching.

Reading a bible verse in its proper context is crucial in the times we live in, it’s easy to be carried away by false doctrine if you don’t question or challenge what you are taught. “As a man thinketh so is he” addresses hypocrisy not the power of our thoughts.
