WHAT ARE THE ASCENDED MASTERS AFTER Part 1

14 May

By Pastor Pam:

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.

I’m Discerning Spirits in 2012 and Beyond! By Minister Doris Partin

11 Jan
Wake up and smell the coffee! By  Minister Doris Partin 

I’m discerning spirits today because this is the season I’m in. As a member of Pam Sheppard’s Spiritual Empowerment Workshop, this is the season I’m in. As one who has been fooled and double fooled by false prophets and false doctrines, this is my season of discerning the spirits, and I must examine that which I thought came from God. Perhaps I better not use the word season, for we are to continually discern the spirits. Correction…I’m discerning the spirits today and until Jesus comes.

"This book was a loud wake up call to ME! Minister Doris

If you read my last post, I shared that I thought the Lord sent me to a place that turned out to be a cult. I was wrong! I did not discern the spirits. The man who led this cult is behind bars for 100 counts of child molestation. God did not send me there. The vision I saw of Jesus, was none other than the ” Fake Jesus ” Pam Sheppard has written extensively about in her book entitled “The Fake Jesus“. In fact, no other person in the world has exposed this truth with such intricacy and clarity.

All right! We know from scripture that discerning spirits is a must. We also know that the organized church neither likes or intends to discern the spirits. Case in point, corrupted Bible translations, turning Bible translating into a career, denominations galore, falling slain in the spirit, babbling in un-known tongues, rape and sexual abuse in churches, thieves fleecing the congregations, tax evasion, popes letting priests go on child molesting sprees, etc. Church leaders are not discerning the spirits and neither are their members. Why? Here’s that phrase again which Pam Sheppard has coined to denote false converts: ” Counterfeit Births “. If you’re a false convert, or under the leadership of a false convert, you will do and/or approve of all of the above. I’m discerning the spirits today….
Here’s why I’m discerning the spirits today: As a student of Pam Sheppard’s Spiritual Empowerment Workshop (SEW), this is what Pam teaches us to do. Discerning the spirits is part of the curriculum. So what am I trying to discern today? Well, I woke up thinking about my own dreams, sometimes I dream about something and it happens. I once dreamt that there was a fire in my son’s room. He was 10 years old. I had to go out that Saturday morning briefly to a nearby destination. When I returned, my son had used the portable heater, the curtain got caught in it. There was a small fire. My son said he prayed and the Lord showed him to plug out the heater, and how to smother the fire. I had left a neighbor to check in on him, but thank God my son (now 16) is a praying young man.
It would seem like that dream of warning was from God. But was it really? Do you remember the psychic woman who followed Paul about, her prophecy was true. What did Apostle Paul do? He cast that spirit out of her. Do you see why I’m discerning the spirits today and until Jesus comes? Do you see why I’m examining myself? Do you see why I’m discerning my own spirit today? Some dreams are NOT from God. I intend to ask Pam about this situation, and the above dream.
Dear Lord, make darkness light before me and crooked things straight (Is 42:16)
If your ready to learn to discern the spirits, examine your salvation and be totally free in Christ, sign-up for Pam Sheppard’s mentoring program here:

Rejection and Hope

11 Jan
There is hope for you….

By Minister Kellie

“By definition, rejection is a two-edged sword. It can come into a person when that person is rejected (denied love and acceptance) and it can cause as much damage even when the person perceives that they are being rejected. The rejection is real to him, regardless if it is real or not. Rejection can also come out of a person when they refuse to agree to, submit to, or believe an established norm. i.e. rebellion, stubbornness, or refusal to believe truth” (Null, 1996)

How does this affect those who have been on either side of that sword?  Well, rejection is the root of all other heart issues. It causes fear and pride. A person who accepts rejection with acceptance will experience fear. If he refuses the rejection  then pride enters.  All fruit of rejection is classified as works of the flesh.

How did this affect me? I felt rejected most of my life. As a little girl, I was the only blonde haired person in my family. Not to mention that my mother told me that I was “the milkman’s daughter” on various occasions, especially when she was introducing me to friends that would stop over. When you are 3, if your mother tells other people you are the milkman’s daughter, you tend to start asking questions to yourself. Was it true?  ”No” it wasn’t. The enemy tended to use my mother a lot as I was growing up. She always made comments about how different I was from the rest of my siblings. She was not an affectionate individual and this too played into the rejection card. She had a hard time showing love and receiving love. This is hard for a little girl who needs the real unconditional love of her mother. I always felt different in my family, as if there was something different about me. I felt like a round peg in a square hole. Rejection allows the enemy to set up camp in you if you allow it to. It’s like a huge open door for the enemy to bring all of his friends.  Satan tells you that you have every right to feel anger and hatred for the wrong that has been done to you, God says, let me use it to teach you humbleness.

 This is what happened to me. Just as God allowed Saul to feel rejection, Saul used it to turn his heart against David for fear that he would take Saul’s place as king, to the point where he wanted to kill him. If Saul would have just repented, things would have been different for him.   God uses judgement and rejection to delete pride out of us. Saul was chosen because of his humility and rejected because of his pride.

God’s breaking and refining hand  enabled  me to see that He allowed all of the rejection in my life to bring me to the point that I buckled under the weight of it. Whether I had received rejection by my mother’s comments, or I refused the truth and lived by my own standards, it brought me to the same conclusion. Apart from the Lord, I could not do anything. I couldn’t remove it by myself and I couldn’t be saved unless He saved me. With the Holy Spirit breaking my heart, drawing me to the Cross—- it produced Godly sorrow for doing things my own way for all of those years. With my heart turned, I repented and God saved me.

If you are in bondage to rejection, we can help you. Call 518-477-5759.

A great read to help you while God is dealing with your rejection is:

THE FAKE JESUS

11 Dec

Growing up  in Harlem as a child of the ’40’s, the Lord protected me from the black church and from religion. Now that I have entered into deliverance counseling with tormented Christian clients, I understand why. Religiosity and the present day church has become seized demonic territory. Most of those who seek me out for deliverance were raised in church from birth. My West Indian parents sent me to  Sunday school alone. As a result, I was able to play hooky every Sunday without once getting caught by my family.

I did not enter the religious system called church until I was already 2 years saved and 35 years old. It was a strange, uncomfortable world for me where I had to learn to “swim with the sharks.” I studied the songs, the mannerisms, all of the accoutrements of “churchyism.” Yet, I never really belonged because I had no church history to stand on among people who could claim several generations of a relationship with Her.. So even though I entered ministry in 1981, I remained a root in dry ground for the next 25 years, an unwanted stepchild.

When the Lord called me out in Sept. 2003, He didn’t tell me EVERYTHING. He simply warned, “Pam, you are a candle,hidden under a bed in this place. If you stay here, I can’t use you. But don’t leave on your own. Let them PUT you out!”

I had no idea what He was talking about as I had been a preacher in good standing for 24 years then and all was at peace. However, it didn’t take long. An unexpected enemy surfaced whom the Lord used to cause the leadership to remove my name from their rolls. The day before, I saw in a dream that like John the Baptist, I was being spiritually beheaded. The deed was done on June 25th, 2004 and I was pushed outside of the camp, waiting for the Lord to send me to another church within another denomination or sect.

I waited for two years and on the third year, the Lord spoke. I was setting up a road trip to several churches to train their leaders on deliverance when I was asked a question. “Pam, would you put curtains up at the windows of a condemned building?” Raised in a ghetto surrounded by boarded up buildings created quite a vivid image. I immediately answered, “No!”

Then the voice said, “Pam, training church leaders according to your plan is like putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building.” Needless to say, I cancelled the trip. Simply put, I was told that the church was already judged but I refused to believe it. So I went on a search that evolved into a study of church history. I figured if the church was already judged, history would reveal it.

And it did.

What I uncovered became the book entitled “the FAKE JESUS: Fallen Angels Among Us.” The book provides details on how religious demons under the command of a fallen angel who calls himself ascended master, Jesus Sananda Immanuel, became the god of the organized church. In the Fake Jesus, I summarize the most outstanding signs to suggest that the Holy Ghost is no longer in the organized church.

The Fake Jesus and Me

7 Dec

I believe I was saved in such a supernatural manner because growing up  in Harlem as a child of the ’40’s, the Lord protected me from the black church and from religion.  Thirty-five years have passed since that great day in March 1977. Today when I enter into deliverance counseling with tormented Christian clients, I understand why. Religiosity and the present day church has become seized demonic territory. Most of those who seek me out for deliverance were raised in church from birth. My West Indian parents sent me to  Sunday school alone. As a result, I was able to play hooky every Sunday without once getting caught by my family.

THE FALSE JESUS: ARE YOU WORSHIPPING HIM?

9 Nov

THE FALSE JESUS: Are You Worshipping him?

 

HERE IS THE PATTERN. Those who came to know Jesus Christ through the organized church have come to know the Jesus of their understanding, embraced him, fallen in love with his sacrifice, his death, his goodness, his mercy, his peace, his power to heal etc. They become devoted followers of the Jesus of their understanding. And because of their commitment and devotion, they are attacked and abused by other followers of this same Jesus who are hypocrites. This attack has a deceptive intent and outcome, in that the devoted ones believe themselves to be more saved than the hypocrites.

However, without an understanding of the Lord’s resurrection, neither the devoted believer nor the hypocrite is truly saved. The expression “He rose from the dead” just becomes more meaningless verbage,–a lifeless “tag on” to the cross. In spite of the fact that the devoted followers are initially deceived by the attack they receive from the hands of professing “Christians” , the Lord uses the attack to His advantage by calling out those that He has chosen from the beginning of time to be genuinely saved. Therefore, He allows the demon to torment His called out ones, who have been entrapped and confused by believing on the imposter. The attack warns the deceived ones that “something is wrong.” Nine times out of 10, what is wrong is that the deceived have been unknowingly believing in a unresurrected imposter who calls himself “Jesus Christ.” .

Just as you will find perhaps billions of innocent people who are extremely devoted to Allah, Buddha, and other gods– sincere people, faithful followers of the wrong god,— the religious demon is using the same tactics in Christianity. The religious demon literally imitates Christ, either without the cross or without the resurrection or at times, even without BOTH. This fake Jesus is more apparent among the Mormons, the Catholics, the Christian Scientists, and the Jehovah Witnesses. Each of these allegedly Christian religions have changed the gospel in some way. However, this “imposter god” is also drawing out followers through the preaching of the prosperity message, ie. “a millionnaire Jesus.”

In other words, word of faith, non-denominational, charismatic and Pentecostals have more subtly changed the nature and character of Jesus with their prosperity preaching and by neglecting to preach the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The false Jesus has used the same tactic with a slightly different spin. THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN TORMENTED CAN CONSIDER YOURSELVES “BLESSED.”. The real Jesus is about to rescue you. The devil has tried to snatch you out of the Lord’s hands but he WILL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL. to be set free, click the title link above called “WHATS GOIN ON.”

ASHTAR

I have found out the name of the imposter-Satan’s #1 religious demon. His name is Jesus Sananda Immanuel, and he is assisted by another, a high level angel called Ashtar. Together, Jesus Sananda and Ashtar have been imitating Jesus Christ of Nazareth. At first, their focus was on establishing false Christian religions like the Mormons and others. A fallen angel pretending to be a UFO, Sananda is a fraud, a mocker, an imitator and a blasphemer of the most High God. Their primary goal is to unite all world religions. Ashtar first entered this solar system on July 18, 1952, 55 years ago. Truly, that is when the problem of the present day organized church began to have serious problems. Ashtar first contacted to Col. George Van Tassel, introducing himself as a UFO. For decades now, Sananda and Ashtar continue to communicate openly with their New Age followers, speaking to them through mediums who today are called “channels” or “contactees.”

If you search the web with the names of these two fallen angels, you will find a plethora of contradictory information, depending upon the “spiritual consciousness” of the channel or contactee. With professing Christians who believe that they are serving and worshipping Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the only begotten Son of God, Sananda and Ashtar use deception through infiltration into the organized church with false practices, false doctrine and deceived and/or false prophets. In other words, Jesus Sananda defies and refutes Jesus Christ of Nazareth by preaching that all religious roads lead to God. The Lord Jesus Christ declared that no man could come unto the Father than but by Himself yet Jesus Sananda preaches that all religions lead to the Father.

To find out who Sananda says that he is, I have reviewed the writing of several “channels.” It was an arduous task. Overall, it seems that Sananda’s mission and purpose is the unification of all world religions, spiritual paths, schools of thought, in other words the formation of Mystery Babylon. Sananda needs ministers to provide him with opportunities to “do his job.” So you need to examine yourself and determine which Jesus you have been worshipping and serving.

Here is the  test as to if the false Jesus is IN your life.

: 1. Are you preaching universal, unconditional love and acceptance? 2. Do you hear little to nothing about sin, repentance and the cross? 3. Have you been sitting under preaching that is emphasizing YOU finding your divine destiny? 4. Have you been sitting under preaching about “taking the kingdom for Christ” ie. dominion teaching? 5. Have you ever been slain in the spirit? 6. Do you have “a prayer language” that you yourself do not understand? 7. Are you striving for complete unity of all faiths in Christ? There is more, but if you believe in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Only begotten Son of God, and can answer “yes” to even one of these 7 questions, you may be in serious trouble.

Here is the most important question to ask. Did you ask Jesus to “come into your heart?” If you did, then you made an invitation to Sananda.

The false Jesus and the fake Jesus are synonyms.  My book is called “

Charles Finney and the Fake Jesus

5 Nov

Charles Finney and the Fake Jesus

From the days when Lucifer fell from heaven because of his rebellion against God, what compels this number one fallen angel is that he desires to be worshipped like God.  As such, he will go to ANY lengths to obtain it, even deceive people who think they are worshipping the Son of God when in actuality, they are worshipping one of Satan’s cohorts, the fake Jesus.  The eastern religions are assigned a fallen being who calls himself Maitreya, and deceived Christians and new agers are in league with the fallen angel who called Jesus Sananda Immanuel.  Together, they are an unholy trinity of Satan, the Anti-Christ and the false prophet of the book of Revelation.

Sananda’s plot took shape  under the ministry of a preacher called Charles Finney.

Charles Finney

Finney was quite a wicked looking man, as you can see the devil all up in his face. The man lived a long time when you consider that in his lifetime, the average live span was  from the late forties to about 65.  Finney lived to be 83, from 1792-1875. A fiery New York preacher, Finney’s impact on church traditions and practices has been  so profound, that his influence is still spreading globally almost two centuries later.  Finney’s notoriety is that he is the one who brought the entire church the “make a decision for Christ” through repeating the sinners prayer and the altar call.  A practicing freemason for 8 years, Finney eventually disavowed if.  Yet what I have learned about freemasonry is that it is witchcraft. And you just  don’t walk away from witchcraft without a struggle.

Anyway, in a nutshell,  Finney believed that human beings were capable of choosing whether they would be corrupt by nature or redeemed, referring to original sin as an “anti-scriptural and nonsensical dogma”  In clear terms, Finney denied the notion that human beings possess a sinful nature. Therefore, if Adam leads us into sin,  he does so not by our inheriting his guilt and corruption, but by our  following his poor example, this leads logically to the view of Christ as not having died for sins but for some lofty, moralistic reason.

Well, this was the man who started the altar call, invitation to Christian discipleship, “I accept Jesus,” practice that has led to the greatest falling away—the one that Paul himself predicted would transpire.  Consequently, due to Charles Finney, souls have probably not been saved within the organized church system for at least 150 years!!!! This doctrine has  primarily affected the Protestants much  more than the Catholics. Another fallen angel, Mother Mary had a different strategy for THEM. The “make a decision, I accept Jesus gospel has so permeated all Protestant Church tradition, a problem that Baptist preacher Paul Washer is diligently trying to correct, to no avail.  Washer is correct on this score but there  are errors in his teaching as well, which is yet “another story.”  Another practice that Finney started was to use the preacher’s invitation at the end of a sermon to evoke an emotional response, in other words to create a charged up atmosphere to manipulate a false conversion.

More on Finney in “the Fake Jesus” & “the New Idolatry.”

Anyway, the organized church is incapable of fixing a problem that has been built so deep into its foundation for almost two centuries. What makes it “incorrectible” ,  is that the church is not even aware of this essential problem, so Sananda has had his seat in it for quite some time.  His next step was to inspire artists to paint images of a white, blondish hair, blue eyed image of Jesus to put on the walls of the churches, thereby cementing his claim to them.  For when a demon or fallen angel  successfully plants  an object of themselves into any place, they establish squatters rights for the practice of their idolatry.

If you were one who repeated a sinner’s prayer, chances are, you are not saved.  Help is available.  Call 518-477-5759

THE ALTAR CALL, THE INVITATION AND THE FAKE JESUS Part 1

30 Oct

THE ALTAR CALL, THE INVITATION AND THE FAKE JESUS Part 1.

PROFILE OF A CONTROL FREAK Part 3

25 Oct

Control freaks are masked in Christian hypocrisy.

Normal strivings for power in a believer are motivated by a sincere desire to be used by God  to deliver those in  the kingdom of this world  so that they might enter  the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What distinguishes normal inclinations from obsessions is that demonic striving for power is often rooted in fear, hatred and feelings of inferiority. A passive-aggressive control freak wears a phony mask.

 Let’s bring it down home to where we all live. Racism is a cultural factor that involves hatred and fear. . When the predominant culture is in fear of losing its power and even worse, becoming extinct, demons of fear, hatred and pride conjoin with the witchcraft demon to control, dominate and suppress those of another race or culture. Then there are those who feel insecure mentally and emotionally who strive for power as a means to protect themselves from anxiety and from a feeling of helplessness.

The  religious demon is also attracted to a soul that feels very insignificant. Those who have been consistently oppressed will develop a rigidity and an unbalanced “super strength” which makes them think and act as if they can master any situation in their own power. Such a person will pretend that he is leaning and trusting on the Lord’s power by spouting scripture like “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”, yet within his soul he considers any weakness as a disgrace and he is steeped in pride. For example, he judges other saints as being weak, when in reality, he himself feels weak and insignificant. This is fertile ground for demons and devils  because they  can use the captive to intimidate the weaker brethren and to cause the control freak to feel condemned.  When the control freak feels condemn, WATCH OUT FOLK! The ruling  entity  will  cause the control freak  to despise himself when he has fallen. When the control freak despises himself, EVERYBODY is a target!

The control freak will  demand to know every detail of even the most insignificant situations. When he or she  has not been informed of EVERYTHING, extreme agitation sets it which a passive-aggressive control freak will be skilled at hiding from others. People with this character flaw can appear to be extremely generous. No one may even notice his desire to dominate and control because the captive is so subtly manipulative. Usually in such cases, a lying demon is involved also. People who appear to be submissive and giving will surprise you with how manipulative they can be. For example, when you righteously confront them with issues that are important to YOU , they avoid the issue at hand by simply responding with counter accusations, whether they be true or not. All confrontation, no matter how small or insignificant, causes them to perceive you as THE ENEMY.

Secular psychoanalysts would agree that constant striving for superiority or “one upsmanship” is at the center of the narcissistic personality, forming a stronghold that is very difficult to shake or even to weaken.  The question to as is “What is at the root of the constant striving?” In some cases, it is an unconscious sense of inferiority. Such people are in a perpetual search for something that will make them feel more personally competent and they get a temporary satisfaction in dominating others by outshining them.

Elder Jones was of this sort.  A dark-skinned African-American, Elder Jones was born and raised in the segregated south.  Too many times did she expose the fact that she felt inferior because of her skin color.  So she compensated. In the denomination, Elder Jones  became the FIRST woman regional administrator in 150 years. So once she obtained this noteworthy position,   why would she unnecessarily place herself in competition with her immediate predecessor, and determine that she would outshine him? Why would she continue to try to outdo all of the ministers that she now had oversight power over? It made no logical sense.

 For example, a church lost its pastor in the middle of the year  and a temporary appointment was in order.  Elder Jones had 5 ministers available to her to pick from.  Did she select one of them?  No.  She selected herself, even though she already was pastoring a church when it is the normal policy for someone in her position to relinquish the role of pastor entirely.  So she became the pastor of not one church but two, also remained the regional administrator, with 10 other churches and pastors under her watch care.  Once she appointed herself pastor of the second church, the members passively  rebelled by not attending on Sunday mornings, a mistake on their part.  Elder Jones used her power as the right hand of the Bishop to recommend that this 100 year old church be closed and the Bishop acted upon her recommendation.  The church is NO MORE! 

Passive-aggressive people can be very dangerous in uncountable ways. The truth will set them free but the truth hurts them to much.  Pride causes people to not want to admit that they are suffering from feelings of inferiority that cause them to “lord it over” others.  This is a most serious situation.  Not only are these types at risk of perdition, when they obtain positions of power and authority, they are dangerous. Control freaks are particularly dangerous because they DO have a form of godliness because they behavior is eccessively polite, and they are very skilled at feigned poise in their strivings for position and power.  The central issue of a control freak is domination and control. Elder Jones strong desire for power is masked by her being “a good person.”  So she uses her good character to be in a position of unchallenged prominence and prestige. The dangerous element of the woman is that she feels herself to be surrounded on all sides by competition for the ascendency that she herself craves. As a result, her strong need to outshine or excel over others, to outsmart them, to make them subservient to her wishes play a crucial role in her control freak style. For example, every situation or interaction with her is viewed from the standpoint of “can I top his or her performance?” or “is this person trying to make ME look bad?  What can I do to protect myself?.”

Well she can cut your spiritual head off!

Today is my 30th anniversary as a minister.  Take my word for it. Churches are overrun with Elder Jones personality types, both male and female–people who need deliverance counseling.   If you are in their spiritual prison, the time to break out and escape to freedom  is NOW!
