The Anointing of Charismatic Preachers: Is It Hypnotism? By Pam Sheppard

2 Nov

I was a preacher in a black denominational church  for 25 years. I preached an average of one sermon a week, with 12 of those years preaching 3 sermons a week. On one occasion in the pulpit in 1983, I felt a strange power come upon me where it seemed I was “not myself.” I was in a rather strong altered state of consciousness. I thought it  was simply  an extra powerful anointing of the Holy Ghost. I now know that IT WAS NOT!!! I had reservations about it because of the struggle I was having with a particular sin at that time. I wondered “how and why would God anoint me like this at such a  challenging time in my spiritual walk? I said to myself “hmmmm.”

  I knew nothing about sermonizing. When I went to church for the first in 1979, I had never even heard a sermon before and so when I was informed in 1981 that upon entering ministry, I would be required to preach a trial sermon on October 25, 1981, I had no idea what a sermon was. So in the summer of ’81, I began to preach in my sleep, in preparation for the October day of trial. I also walked around all day for about 30 days, muttering sermons. The muttered  sermons were supernatural. Nevertheless, I thought that I was under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It took about 25 years for me to find out that in those early and strange days, I was under the “anointing” of a religious spirit or  demon who the enemy had assigned to me. I thank God that  when I DID enter the pulpit to preach and pastor, it was less than a handful of times  out of  at least 2 thousand sermons that this noticeably strange   power came upon me. I have since discovered that it is a demonic power, in no way, the Holy Ghost.

Oh yes! Demons enjoy preaching. I came out of a denomination where men who were adulterers, fornicators, perverts, closet homosexuals could preach so hard, that they could affect even me, in spite of what I personally  knew about the intimate, sometimes secret details of each preacher’s life. At least 10 times a year, 50-100 ministers gathered at various regional church functions and a  different handful were selected to preach at these gatherings.  When those ministers whom  I  personally knew were corrupt  were assigned to preach, I harnessed  down my soul to protect myself from being  overpowered, but there were times when I would lose control. Their power was too strong. I often wondered about it over the years. How could these corrupt men overtake my soul with one of their sermons in spite of my pre-planned resistance to it? Could this be God? Would God use such sinful men to preach HIS WORD???!!!

It took two decades or more to find out the answer to that question. The answer is NO!!!! The Holy Spirit does not anoint such preachers but the devil DOES!!!. It is called communal intoxication as studied and named   by the founder of sociology, Max Weber.

Communal intoxication is defined by Weber as the supernormal ability of magicians, wizards, witches and charismatic religious leaders. With the god concept at its center, they induce an altered state of consciousness in their followers as demonstrated by the congregation’s manifestation of convulsions, trembling, and intense effusions of excitement and ecstasy. (Come Out of Her God’s People, pg 190) Weber points out that that communal intoxication has a contagious effect where it can spread throughout an audience or congregation of people, infecting those assembled with sensations of enhanced emotionalism and vitality. This definition explains the so called holy dance, holy rollers, holy laughter, running around the church building, perhaps even tongues and slain in the spirit phenomena.

This power was manifested in my presence for 25 years among denominational African American preachers. Keep in mind that Weber’s studies were predominately tribal communities on other continents, including Africa and Asia. Webers findings suggest that the altered state appeal has a significant connection to today’s charismatic leaders’ ability to cause large numbers of people to believe that they have been released from bondages and that they have “heard from God.”

One thing Weber pointed out is that none of what we see today in the churches is a new phenomena. Paganism has used hypnotic or altered states of consciousness in their various forms of worship with the use of drums and instruments to arouse the soul for decades.  In the churches, similar techniques and strategies use emotional songs and lyrics  to work  congregants into a spiritual  frenzy that is not the anointing of God. Those most vulnerable  are usually  emotionally struggling and in some cases, they relish an opportunity to have a fit.

African American denominational  preachers learn from each other. When they  emulate the preaching styles of others, like whooping for example,  they are often unaware that what they have acquired are  hypnotic skills. I suspect that most Charismatic preachers  know exactly what they are doing.  Either way, be the preacher uninformed and  innocent or deliberate and guilty, you are still sitting in a congregation that is actually  being manipulated and led by unseen forces known as religious spirits aka demons and fallen angels. So be warned. Evil spirits are looking for opportunities to enter their subjects who have been mesmerized or hypnotized into an altered state. A church service is very conducive to demonic manipulation.  The altered state of consciousness enables them to take control of their human targets.

Mark Virkler: Journaling With Evil Spirits by Pam Sheppard

28 Oct

I  conducted deliverance counseling with a client who reported she  got demonized shortly after  practicing journaling through the teachings of Mark Virkler. Alice (not her name)  heard him on a Sid Roth interview, purchased his CD training program and in just a few months, she was demonized. Here is a brief portion of her story:

The demonic torment continues: Demons in eyes, male demon (kundalini I think- symptoms fit) attached to base of skull, crawls through hair, feels like slight electric current, crawling on legs, crawling in spine from head to tailbone, this big kundalini one burns my head, face, back, and arms. Heat waves, chills. Itching of face, rash on face, burning eyes. Sexual harassment (this has completely failed and is fading away because it is the one type or group of demons from which I am always given the way of escape. They are also required to obey my command to be gone and thus they can’t get anywhere no matter how often they check back.) Interference with sensation nerves in bowels.

Jitters, vibrating in lower left leg like a rattlesnake’s tail, desolate sorrow, dull ache in soul like just before you cry, crying jags, feeling that God has rejected me, Sleepy when need to be awake, awake when supposed to be asleep. Things I say don’t come out right. Old choir songs run round and round in head. Spiritual confusion, doubt. Trouble making simple decisions. I know I have open chakras, from crown to tailbone, and in my case this takes place through my eyes at night, about 5 at a time. They are tormenting spirits.

After 6 months of deliverance counseling with me, she reported the following:

I used to hear voices and have terrible nightmares, but since being undeceived, these are gone. Also gone are mocking accusations in the form of thoughts, like everything that went wrong with your kids is your fault, and you have lived such a profane life, you are an old ugly bitch, You are a worthless excuse, You dumb whore, or You are a world class failure at everything you’ve ever done, especially a lousy mother. Pam, you cast that one out, and it never returned. It is so peaceful not to be constantly accused, the silence is golden. Also, I was being driven to run ragged doing church work and ministry. I thought I was guilty if I didn’t wear myself out. And you cast that one out, never to return. I quit everything, and I am peaceful and free from that. And now I am free to care for my  mom and dad as I need and want to do. I don’t know much about the python spirit, except the reference you gave in Acts, but I know it’s gone. My days of being drawn into divination are over, because I have been undeceived.

I plan to watch the Mark Virkler  video that this client claims  caused her  to be demonized. I won’t post the video but I will take some notes from it. I want to jot down what ever instructions were given so that with future clients, I will walk them through it in reverse, disavowing each instruction. With this client, I worked on each chakra, one by one every few months.

Let this be a warning to all presence of God seekers who may be among us, unawares.

If you became demonized after journaling or entering into an altered state of consciousness, just know that it is no quick fix.  However, if you are willing to do the work as Alice did, then send me an email to rescueonfb@icloud.com and we can get started obtaining your freedom.

Wayne Dyer and Myticism: More Dangerous Than A Mega Preacher

27 Oct

Wayne Dyer is a  best selling author but he is not mega. Yet he is quite well known, receiving an average of 165,000 google searches a month. It seems like TV is what creates and makes a mega personality .Yet  I am discovering that spiritual leaders who  have a formidable fan base yet  who are not mega  are even more dangerous because they go un-noticed relative to the spiritual damage they impose on the unsuspecting.

From what I’ve read, Dyer’s teachings and practices are toxic! He teaches alot of feel good, do good messages, self-development and spiritual growth, yet  doesn’t call himself a Christian. His message is derived from both  of Eastern and New Age spirituality.

His core message is as follows:

You are the same as your Source. You are God. Because you come from God, you cannot be anything but God.

Meditation

Dyer tells people to keep repeating “I Am” (put a positive word)…focus on peace and love before they go to sleep. He also tells them to repeat that  they are attracting those who are in alignment with their highest ideals.

His meditation CD’s uses “sacred sound” called the Moses Code Frequency where a sound-healing expert Jonathan Goldman used ancient kabbalah tradition to create sound frequencies that sound like “i am that I am” .A session can go on for 40 minutes.

The Altered State of Consciousness

Dyer goes into  an ASC when writing, he claims its not him but “the source” writing through him and he feels magical, blissful as it happens. .He also asserts that he has spoken to an ascended master called “Abraham” The conversation is on his website

I have had clients for deliverance who studied Dyer for a few years by listening to audio tapes and reading his books. I would not have heard of Dyer if it were not for them .  Here are some revealing statements as to the consequences that evolved for clients who entered deliverance counseling with me:

After studying the Dyer tapes, spirits entered into my mind and showed me hell on earth.  One night I saw what appeared to be spirits and smoke coming from the backyard into the house. It smelled like burnt ashes.  The following night, I saw a lake of fire with an orange sky. A tremendous fear was placed upon my mind. I have been tormented every day since those Dyer studies. I feel like my soul is gone.”

I have only seen a few cases of people who have studied Dyer so II am unaware of the fate of others  who studied his work.  What I can say with assurance  is that the evil spirits  need the altered state of consciousness to communicate to us.  Clearly, Dyer is about inducing an ASC.  So to the wise, just put two and two together. if spirits are taking control over your life.

If you have been inducing an altered state through hypnosis, meditation, yoga, or  by any other esoteric method to open chakras, you may very well be in torment.  Help is available. Send your testimony to rescueonfb@icloud.com

Evil Spirits in the Church That Reveal Satan’s Agenda by Pam Sheppard

16 Oct

The woman in this video, under the power of fallen angels is telling the congregation exactly what the Lord has revealed to me about tongues.

I have seen this kind of thing before. I know of a case where demons used a member of the congregation to tell a deliverance pastor of 50 yrs that “he was working for them, that the organized church had been taken over by them! That all the mega preachers work for them. Also, a lot of what I wrote in The FAKE JESUS was told to this pastor by the fallen angels that spoke through this young woman.

In this particular video, the same sort of thing is happening. the entity is mockingly revealing all of Satan’s secrets. Why do they do this? I suspect they are renegades, working for themselves, with no loyalty not only to God but to Satan also. THEY ARE FULLY INDEPENDENT.

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LRUl9RspBH4

When you watch this video, and see how the leader reacts to it.

Outcomes of Opened Chakras: The Account of Martii in Finland

25 Oct

YouTube is being overrun by drugs without narcotics or alcohol. These are mental drugs called idozers. . For example, the binaural beat videos are idozers that contain subliminal messages that alter one’s beliefs in the subconscious. These videos “claim to help you” to quit smoking, to focus, to meditate, to build your self confidence, and cleverly teach mind control in a witchcraft style based upon the law of attraction. In fact, the teachings claim that those who practice it’s tenets can make any other human being attracted to them by “uploading data to his brain”.

Martii from Finland watched 4 YouTube videos on binaural beats when He was 17 years old, He was led to them after smoking marihuana once, where he claims that he opened a chakra doorway to the first demon that entered him two years ago. In Martii’s  own words:


This demon kept me in fear for over 2 years that my personality had changed “because of smoking a miniature amount of marihuana”.The demon led me to try a self-confidence binaural beats, one of them was a self-confidence binaural beat; which contained “messages”.One of the messages was “I have the power within me”.

They’re powerful, hard to resist and they tend to make me want to do things that will later on get me into some sort of trouble. These days im just ignoring them to the best of my ability. If i choose to do as they say they become more frequent, but I know pretty sure that following what these thoughts will slowly get me into their control again and it’s a battle trying to snap out of it later on. Also what suggests toward demons is that they feel good and very tempting and the thoughts try to justify along with a good feeling of why it’s not harmful behaviour yo myself and others.

To give you an example is to try and manipulate someone without asking just as me. They’re always selfish but try to make me not think of it as selfish. It”s very hard to describe but it can be anything I defininately don’t want to do. I don’t know the exact word for it in english but it’s always along the lines of “come oon it’s not that bad”. They make my head a mess and sometimes it’s hard to tell whether it’s my own thought or not. They can even be murderous pure evil thoughts with foul language. And it’s as if the thought is trying to trick me into believing it came from me when I had no such intention in my head. When I’m tired or doing sports it’s more frequent and that can also come from ny own fear cuz I know now I’m weakened and easy to attackbwhen I’m not concentrating. It’s very confusing and sometimes I get confused to the point I where it’s hard to tell who I am anymore.

I say for example in my mind “my spirit is not for an evil spirit” and there is a thought which is trying to be timed mid-sentence to make the sentence be “my spirit is not for the holy spirit”. Also when i say in my mind i love lord jesus christ a thought is trying to be timed to make the sentence be “my lord satan”. This is starting to be pretty serious soil. I’m not scared though, something is keeping me calm through this. Before I would have freaked out and started to walk around the house in doubt, fear and terror, this time around I’m not.

Maybe it’s because of you and Pam, I know there is still hope.

Martii’s captivity is only one example that could very well be a global classic.

Martii contacted me after reading my one and only blog on the dangers of opening the chakras. He had been searching for a few years to find a deliverance minister who could set him free. he called me from Finland.

Here is more of MARTII’S personal testimony:

. Let me tell you. They can somehow do something which affects my ability to believe. One demon was in my forehead casting some energy while another one was at the throat. They staged even fake crying and fake emotion.

They faked freedom by truth with both my throat and forehead chakras under their control, creating an illusion so strong I just couldn’t help it.

it made 0 sense but they staged a false rebirth.

This was so well planned I had no idea they could pull something like this off.

    They pretended to be me so well that I didn’t notice it wasn’t me thinking

.
Also that anger toward God earlier with the blasphemy and all that.., they pretended that aswell.
It was a trick to make me believe I was supressing “my anger” toward God and that I needed to get out so that I would be truthful LoLoLolOLOoO d., while all the while they caused all that.

Their tricks are unbelievable.

Generally, I don’t take more than 15 minutes to cast out demons, which also includes my prayers and affirmations. On October 14, 2013, with me in New York and Martii in Finland, we were on a 7 hour time difference, 4 pm for me and 11 pm for him. I open up as I usually do, with a bit of counseling and prayer. Once I started to confront the demons in each chakra, it was 47 minutes of horrible sounding manifestations that rival the fake sounds of Hollywood’s best Satanic horror movie—only this was real and no staged. it is on audio tap so if any one wants to hear it, I have Martii”s permission to share the audio I with you.

It did not stop there. Martii  is continuing to manifest even after we hung up he phone. nine days Later, Mike wrote this:

Two more demons left from my forehead and throat, today, Oct. 23. … well i hope that is the last of those two, they’ve been messing with me for too long. This is making me me wonder… jjst how many demons did I have? This looks like it could be from tens to hundreds.

From what I heard over that phone, it’s got to be in the hundreds. What is not clear to Martii is that it was nothing but the name and the blood of Jesus Christ that is setting him free. It has been revealed to me that Martii will be completely free in 30 days. Truth has yet a job to do on Martii.

If any of you have opened up your chakras in strange mystical ways of entering an altered state of consciousness, you need to call me at 518-477-4759. just ask for Pam Sheppard.

Slain in the Spirit, Part 2 by Pam Sheppard

31 Jan

In ‘Slain in the Spirit, Part 1,’ I went into detail of what happens when one is slain in the spirit and how it lines up-or does not line up-with the scripture.

We talked about how one is actually in a ‘trance’ when slain in the Spirit and can open themselves to the demonic.  

The following is an article written by Pam Sheppard that further explains WHY the ENEMY is wanting more and more people to take part of this ‘slain in the spirit’ phenomena.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THE ALTERED STATE IS A HYPNOTIC TRANCE

Among my faithful Facebook friends is a cadre of serious believers who continually share YouTube video clips, blogtalkradio programs, and various articles that dramatically portray how the enemy has infiltrated the Christian community with a variety of occult, even blasphemous doctrines and practices.  To name but a few, the list is long: the Joel’s Army movement is at the top of the list because it encompasses It ALL!!

Then there is  yoga, the kundalini spirit, TM, people running around the church  looking like they are literally on fire, alien encounters, astral travel, slain in the spirit, the laughter and dancing movements, (I refuse to call them ‘holy’), tongue prayer languages,—the list seems almost endless. In fact, even  charismatic sermonizing has caused people to become hysterical, breaking loose in church aisles, appearing to have lost their minds.

Yet, there are even stranger things going  on that are a lot less public.  As an example, in my Christian telephone counseling practice of 10 years, I have come in contact with Christians from around the world  who are constantly “hearing voices” yet they are not mentally ill.  In 10 years, I have been in contact with lots of churchgoers.  Among them are people who thought that they were saved, but after careful consideration, they ultimately admitted that they were not—yet—they  had spoken  in tongues and had often submitted themselves to falling slain in the spirit in various charismatic churches.

Ministers laid  hands on  many of them to receive what is colloquially known as “an impartation.” When they began to be tormented in one way or the other, most of them sought help from deliverance ministries, yet their condition worsened.  In fact, 75% of  my Christian client contacts  were hearing voices when they telephoned me for help—all of them were active and faithful church members. Some of them I could help, some of them, I could not, for one reason or another.

One thing that all of these strange happenings have in common is the altered state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.”  With that ONE common denominator, I decided to “investigate” by examining a plethora of occult websites, to see what devils and demons  were openly revealing to their faithful followers.  In other words, “I spied out the land.”  I figured that even though Satan and his troops lie to their followers, they might reveal something to them  that they persevere to hide from true followers of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  Believe me, it was a disgusting and dangerous assignment , so I do not recommend others do what I did.  The blasphemy against the Lord is horrendous and those who are weak in faith might be victimized, even indoctrinated.

As a result of a year’s work, I believe that I have uncovered Satan’s overall agenda which ties into why the altered state of consciousness—the trance– plays such  a pivotal role in bringing about what the Anti-Christ intends  to do.  I have written about this subject in 4 of my 7 books:  Faces of the Religious Demon, the Fake Jesus, Come Out of Her God’s People, and the New Idolatry.  However, if you are not into Christian non-fiction, then here it is in a nutshell:
The devils and demons have told their followers that “the World Master” plans to introduce himself to all mankind through what appears to be telepathic communication.  Therefore, these spirit entities have been feverishly working in our times to cause people to be able to enter into a trance–an ASC—so that the voice of the Anti-Christ can be heard.
With occult followers, it is an easy thing to do because they willingly put themselves into trances by meditation, yoga, chanting, channeling, astral travel, drugs, etc. With the people in the world, they enter into trances through sex, drugs, movies, etc.   So the enemy had to devise ways to open doorways in Christians so that “we too will be able to hear the voice of the Anti-Christ.”  Satan is seeking for mankind to lose themselves in an altered state of consciousness so as to provide an open doorway for demons to “walk in” when the time is right.

What I learned on the occult websites is that the Anti-Christ is going to attempt to  pull a global stunt  where EVERYONE hears the voice of a stranger, saying the exact same thing at the exact same time.  In this way, the son of perdition intends to prove “that he is God” because he will appear to be both omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent–manifesting the qualities of God Almighty.  However, the only ones who will be able to hear his voice, will be those who have been opened to “the trance.”

I was once, one of those people.  In the 70’s, I was a psychic medium.  An opened door to it ALL OF IT.  Once I got saved on March 29,1977, all occult doorways were shut down.  However, in 1982,  I reopened them by heeding to the doctrines and the practices of the charismatic movement.  For 25 years, I heard from religious demons, mostly in dreams and sometimes audibly, believing that I was hearing from the Holy Ghost.  When the Lord opened my blind eyes to the truth, I shut down ALL of it: tongues, slain in the spirit, the laughter, the travail in the spirit—I MEAN ALL OF IT.   I put up a spiritual blockade over my mind at night,  that protects me from remembering what demons try to tell me in dreams.  When God speaks to me now, I don’t feel ANYTHING. I simply “know things.”  After a day or so I realize, “Oh, the Holy Ghost was here.  Imagine that!”
Why fallen angels and evil spirits need the  altered state and Satan’s end time agenda is laid out in  the book, Come Out of Her, God’s People,”

Here is a brief excerpt:

Fallen angels stand by, patiently watching and waiting for their churchgoing prey to allow themselves to be induced into an altered state of consciousness by “any means necessary.” One they spot an opening, the religious angels seize the opportunity.  The most classic example is that of Alice Bailey, the infamous founder of present day occultism.  A churchgoing woman, Bailey is actually the founder of what is known today as “the occult.”  Most startling is that Alice Bailey began as a Sunday School Teacher in a Presbyterian church (see how this former Sunday School teacher helped to promote the introduction to the New World Order).

Slain in the Spirit, Part 1

31 Jan

Slain:  people who have been slain, dead, killed.

We all have heard the phrase ‘slain in the spirit.’  A preacher lays hands on someone-or sometimes not-and then the people fall to the ground, out in somewhat of a ‘trance,’ supposedly by way of the Holy Ghost.

While ‘slain in the spirit,’ it is said that the people in a trance are hearing from God…that God is delivering that person from afflictions or bondages of all kinds.  So this practice has been accepted, along with all its various forms.

The word ‘trance’ is not used often in the Bible, a total of 5 times.  The last time is in the Book of Acts 22:17, when God instructed the Apostle Paul to leave Jerusalem.

The Greek word for trance used here is ‘ekstasis,’ which means ‘a throwing of the mind out of its normal state, alienation of mind, whether such as makes a lunatic or that of a man who by some sudden emotion is transported as it were out of himself, so that in this rapt condition, although he is awake, his mind is drawn off from all surrounding objects and wholly fixed on things divine that he sees nothing but the forms and images lying within, and thinks that he perceives with his bodily eyes and ears realities shown him by God;  amazement, the state of one who, either owing to the importance or the novelty of an event, is thrown into a state of blended fear and wonderment.’

The word ‘ekstasis’ is where we get the word ‘Ecstasy’ today.

As we all know, the drug Ecstasy. Ecstasy is a drug that elevates the mood.  It is used at parties called ‘raves’ where kids take it so that they can party for up to two to three days.  Users of the drug say that it produces profoundly positive feelings, empathy for others, elimination of anxiety, and extreme relaxation.

Or in other words, they are placed in a trance, that is self-induced.

In the Christian world, these trance-like states are said to be moments of prayer and meditation, probably based upon the cases in the Bible where people were in trances.  People have reported receiving messages and special revelations ‘from God’ while under these ‘self-induced’ trances.  But I would like to point out that in every case where Balaam, Paul, and Peter were in a trance, the Bible says they were either praying and/or fell into a trance.

The instances in the Word where they were in a trance, in the Old Testament, the Word says that Balaam ‘fell’ into a trance.  In the instances of Peter and Paul, the Word says they were in prayer before being in a trance.

In both instances, in the Old and New Testament, the trances were brought on by the WILL OF GOD.  They were NOT self-induced trances brought on by the will of man.

It is safe to say that the ‘slain in the spirit’ movement is a movement self-induced by the hands and will of man.

They are man’s yet another attempt to get close to and in communion with God, instead of trusting and relying upon THE HOLY GHOST to give the unction and initiate it.

Whenever we step into the realm of trying to ‘make something happen’-even if it’s get in communion with God, or to hear from God-we fall into the arena of error and deception that the enemy can EASILY imitate.

The instances of being in a trance (in the Bible) that were induced by the hand of God are OF GOD.

The instances of being in a trance (in the modern day churches today) where someone in ‘slain in the spirit’ are-for the most part-NOT OF GOD.

How can I say that?

Because anything that is not initiated in the genuine SPIRIT OF GOD BY THE WILL OF GOD is of the devil.

People who are ‘slain in the spirit’ are always done so by the motion of someone’s hands or by the direct laying on of hands.  Nowhere in the Bible do we ever see an account where someone is ‘slain in the spirit.’

And when you have people open up themselves to the things that are (seemingly) of the spirit that is induced by the hands of men, those people are opening up themselves to the demonic realm.

Tell me:  why would someone knowingly open up themselves to something ungodly and demonic-yet they say they are ‘seeking after God’ or ‘wanting to hear a word from God?’

Most of the time, most people who allow themselves to be ‘slain in the spirit’ do so ignorantly, not knowing what they are allowing into their spirits.  I can tell you…having been saved over 20 years-and actively in ministry for over 5-I have seen plenty of cases where some were slain in the spirit.  I MYSELF have been ‘slain in the spirit.’  And in just about every case, either myself or the others who I knew who had hands laid on them and they were ‘slain in the spirit’ got up off the floor WORSE OFF then what they were before!

If you want to know the benefits of something (in the Spirit), you have to take time to examine the FRUIT OF IT.  And fruit does not just automatically pop up out of the ground or on the tree.  Even Jesus gave the fig tree ample time to bear fruit (the average life expectancy of the fig tree is hundreds of years) in Matthew 21 before He decreed it to wither up and die due to fruitlessness.  So it takes time to wait, watch and see if the fruit of various things that we have allowed in the Body of Christ will be good or bad.

If no fruit is yielded-or bad fruit is borne out of it-then clearly that means it was NOT OF GOD.

And whatever is not of God eventually leads to death.  So it is with being ‘slain in the Spirit.’

In Pam Sheppard’s book,   “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” Pam mentions that there is a specific agenda of the enemy to get masses of people in trances, as well as goes into detail as to why that is so.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this series of ‘Slain in the Spirit, Part 2.’

Testimony of Deliverance From A Fallen Angel

13 Dec

To my readers, I was deep into the occult for three years, when the Lord snatched me out of it and caused me to become born again on March 29, 1977.  This holiday season, I have already given thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for delivering me from a fallen angel 34 years ago. Nevertheless, my occult background was  so compatible to word of faith, charismatic teachings and practices, that  a I transitioned into them quite easily. For example, I had healing powers as a psychic. I simply transitioned those powers, believing that they were from the Holy Ghost.  My powers were very much like that of Todd Bentley.

If you have had any background in the occult, just know that once you get saved, the devil does not give up on you.  He will use your psychic powers to imitate the gifts of the Holy Ghost.

The year was 1974 and I was an atheist.  I was so earthly that I seemed to be of no spiritual  good. Very practical, very much the cynic.   I first opened up my spirit when I began to study and practice relaxation therapy and hypnosis.  To my surprise, I entered into an altered state of consciousness rather easily, for someone who was as skeptical as myself.  Almost immediately, I was bombarded by spiritual experiences of various kinds.  I believe that the ASC opened the veil to my latent psychic powers.  From 1974-77, I documented in a diary about 3000 dreams, most  were clairvoyant in nature.  Sometimes I dreamed, remembered and documented as many as 10 dreams a night, some of which came to pass the very next day.

From hypnosis and dreams, I began to study astrology into the wee hours of the night.  Consumed by what I believed to be cosmic or planetary predictors of the course of human life, I initiated a study of the astrology charts of the deceased.  I targeted people who died sudden, even violent deaths.  In one particular case of a young man name Frank, I needed to know his exact birthdate and date of death so I went to the graveyard where he was buried and jotted it down from the tombstone in order to construct astrology charts for my study.

Later that same night, as I marvelled over the charts, Henry, a friend of Franks who was assisting me with information about his deceased pal, suggested that I try to contact Frank myself in a séance.  I laughed and laughed.  I did not believe in such nonsense.  However, that very night, I held my first  and only séance in the summer of 1974, never expecting that I would enter into a supernatural realm of which I was totally unaware and ill prepared to contend with.

As six people–three children and three adults, 3 male and 3 female–gathered around my friend’s dining room table in the dark, we began by making fun and nervously giggling.  We thought we were playing just another parlor game.  As we settled down and got quiet, to my amazement, when I raised my head and focused my eyes toward the center of the room, a spirit materialized directly in front of my face!

The being  manifested in the form of a huge head of a man, at least 3 times larger than the size of a normal human head.  Its substance or essence looked like a very thick cloud or a dark room filled with thick cigarette smoke.  However, the “smoke” or “cloud” formed itself into a perfect shape of a man’s head, with a U-shaped hairline, sideburns, a  mustache and full beard, wearing an old-fashioned Ascot in his neck. While doing research for my 4th book, “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” I found a picture of the being that strongly resembles the “smoked head.”  The ascended master who calls himself “St. Germain.  More on him later.

The room had been darkened by pulling the socket out of the walls while the lamps had been lit and on.  The “head” could not be seen in a lit room.  I inserted the plug into the socket and then removed it about three times.  While the room was dark, the “head remained.The third time that I darkened the room, the “head” disappeared suddenly. POOF!

At first I was not afraid, only excited and amazed that my entire world of skepticism and unbelief of supernatural things had just been turned upside down.  As I lay in my bed in the dark that night, I began to experience a sense of apprehension.  Finally I drifted into sleep, only to have an ominous “sleep paralysis” experience which folk from the deep south call “the haints.”  I felt like I was choking.  A heaviness came on me where I woke up thinking that my young daughter was sleeping on top of me.  I patted my body and the bed to see who it was that was smothering me.  I tried to call for help.  However, I had no voice–not even a whisper. I was so afraid at this point that I fainted.  While I was out cold I thought I heard from Frank.  A voice said “Leave me Alone!”

Evil Spirits Need the Altered State

12 Nov

THE ALTERED STATE IS A HYPNOTIC TRANCE

Among my faithful Facebook friends is a cadre of serious believers who
continually share YouTube video clips, blogtalkradio programs, and various
articles that dramatically portray how the enemy has infiltrated the Christian
community with a variety of occult, even blasphemous doctrines and practices.
To name but a few, the list is long: the Joel’s Army movement is at the top of
the list because it encompasses It ALL!!

Then there is  yoga, the kundalini spirit, TM, people running around the church  looking like they are literally on fire, alien encounters, astral travel, slain in the spirit, the laughter and dancing movements, (I refuse to call them ‘holy’), tongue prayer
languages,—the list seems almost endless. In fact, even  charismatic
sermonizing has caused people to become hysterical, breaking loose in church aisles, appearing to have lost their minds.

Yet, there are even stranger things going  on that are a lot less public.  As
an example, in my Christian telephone counseling practice of 10 years, I have
come in contact with Christians from around the world  who are
constantly “hearing voices” yet they are not mentally ill.  In 10 years, I have
been in contact with lots of churchgoers.  Among them are people who thought that they were saved, but after careful consideration, they ultimately admitted that they were not—yet—they  had spoken  in tongues and had often submitted themselves to falling slain in the spirit in various charismatic churches.

Ministers laid  hands on  many of them to receive what is colloquially known as “an impartation.” When they began to be tormented in one way or the other, most of them sought help from deliverance ministries, yet their condition worsened.  In fact, 75% of  my Christian client contacts  were hearing voices when they telephoned me for help—all of them were active and faithful church members. Some of them I could help, some of them, I could not, for one reason or another.

One thing that all of these strange happenings have in common is the altered
state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.”  With that ONE
common denominator,
I decided to “investigate” by examining a plethora
of occult websites, to see what devils and demons  were openly revealing to
their faithful followers.  In other words, “I spied out the land.”  I figured
that even though Satan and his troops lie to their followers, they might reveal
something to them  that they persevere to hide from true followers of Jesus
Christ of Nazareth.  Believe me, it was a disgusting and dangerous assignment , so I do not recommend others do what I did.  The blasphemy against the Lord is horrendous and those who are weak in faith might be victimized, even indoctrinated.

As a result of a year’s work, I believe that I have uncovered Satan’s overall
agenda which ties into why the altered state of consciousness—the trance– plays such  a pivotal role in bringing about what the Anti-Christ intends  to do.  I have
written about this subject in 4 of my 6 books:  Faces of the Religious Demon, the Fake Jesus, Come Out of Her God’s People, and the New Idolatry.  However, if you are not into Christian non-fiction, then here it is in a nutshell:
The devils and demons have told their followers that “the World Master” plans to introduce himself to all mankind through what appears to be telepathic communication.  Therefore, these spirit entities have been feverishly working in our times to cause people to be able to enter into a trance–an ASC—so that the voice of the Anti-Christ can be heard.

With occult followers, it is an easy thing to do because they willingly put
themselves into trances by meditation, yoga, chanting, channeling, astral
travel, drugs, etc. With the people in the world, they enter into trances
through sex, drugs, movies, etc.   So the enemy had to devise ways to open
doorways in Christians so that “we too will be able to hear the voice of the
Anti-Christ.”  Satan is seeking for mankind to lose themselves in an altered
state of consciousness so as to provide an open doorway for demons to “walk in” when the time is right.

What I learned on the occult websites is that the Anti-Christ is going to
attempt to  pull a global stunt  where EVERYONE hears the voice of a stranger, saying the exact same thing at the exact same time.  In this way, the son of perdition intends to prove “that he is God” because he will appear to be both omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent–manifesting the qualities of God Almighty.  However, the only ones who will be able to hear his voice, will be those who have been opened to “the trance.”

I was once, one of those people.  In the 70’s, I was a psychic medium.  An
opened door to it ALL OF IT.  Once I got saved on March 29,1977, all
occult doorways were shut down.
  However, in 1982,  I reopened them by heeding to the doctrines and the practices of the charismatic movement.  For 25 years, I heard from religious demons, mostly in dreams and sometimes audibly, believing that I was hearing from the Holy Ghost.  When the Lord opened my blind eyes to the truth, I shut down ALL of it: tongues, slain in the spirit, the laughter, the travail in the spirit—I MEAN ALL OF IT.   I put up a spiritual blockade over my mind at night,  that protects me from remembering what demons try to tell me in dreams.  When God speaks to me now, I don’t feel ANYTHING. I simply “know things.”  After a day or so I realize, “Oh, the Holy Ghost was here.  Imagine that!”
Why fallen angels and evil spirits need the  altered state and Satan’s endtime agenda is laid out in  the book, “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” Here is a brief excerpt:

Fallen angels stand by, patiently watching and waiting for their churchgoing prey to allow themselves to be induced into an altered state of consciousness by “any means necessary.” One they spot an opening, the religious angels seize the opportunity.  The most classic example is that of Alice Bailey, the infamous founder of present day occultism.  A churchgoing woman, Bailey is actually the founder of what is known today as “the occult.”  Most startling is that Alice Bailey began as a Sunday School Teacher in a Presbyterian church.

Tongues Opens a Demonic Doorway To Your Spirit

7 Nov

How I Protect My Spirit by Pam Sheppard

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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