BE Set Free From Endtime Fear!

1 Oct

In the USA, fear overtook us in the month of September, on the 11th day in 2001.

 

I recall the day well. A New Yorker from birth, I sat in front of the TV, bible open to Revelation 18. I saw both towers hit and watched in shock and amazement as the dust from the fallen buildings ran like a subway around the city, looking much like what is described in the scripture concerning “world trade:”

The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

So September 11, 2001 began a prophetic countdown for me that has continued  the next 16 years. Although  I kept in mind the Lord’s words  as recorded in Matthew 24, I understood that “the end was not yet.” Nevertheless,  the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City  personally designated a signal that it was time to begin to prepare and expect the Lord’s soon return.

Sixteen years have  passed, with specific revelations tried and tested to be from the Holy Spirit.

In 2001-2002, I was shown some key truths about casting out of demons and healing. In 2003, the Lord spoke to me in a dream, advising me that  I must come out of a church denomination that ordained me—a place where I had pastored 3 churches over a span of 25 years. By 2004, I was out the institutional church. By 2007, I heard the voice of God reveal to me the condition of the IC . It was that year that I knew that I would not return.   In 2008, I closed the church I had founded in 1996. By 2011, I was shown in a dream how Russia would infiltrate the USA, first by a cyber attack that would take place under President Obama’s administration. By 2012, I started an online ministry called RESCUE, by 2016, the message in the dream of 2011 came to pass. From 2004-2014, I wrote 7 books.

This timeline is important because each year following 9/11/2001 served as orderly and sequential steps that were crucial to my preparation Delete repeated word to minister in these times.

Today is October 1, 2017. Looking back on the previous month that just ended yesterday—September 2017–has brought a sense of fear into the hearts of most Americans.  With each natural disaster, the underlying message  received by  people of various racial, political and religious persuasions is that we  are living in perhaps the end of end times. Yet in spite of the signs, only a very few are expecting the Lord Jesus Christ to soon re-appear, subdue and rule the earth with an iron rod.

I have lived in NY my entire life.  For those of us 50 years old and beyond,  the natural  disasters of September 2017  in less than a two-week period, is a first time phenomena. What is both striking and startling is not only the extent of the devastation but the synchronicity and frequency is particularly  foreboding. In spite of the fact that advanced forecasting technology was able to pinpoint the eye of each storm, the country was practically powerless against hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria. Finally, the sudden and unexpected the earthquake in Mexico compounded national fear.

So yes ,  I suspect there is much fear in the hearts of North Americans, compounded by an ever-increasing, menacing dialogue between the US and North Korea that threatened and continues to lead closer to a nuclear war, occurring simultaneously with both the hurricanes and the earthquake, September 2017 was the most difficult month I have ever witnessed.  NO doubt. September 2017 may go down in history as the month that disasters  spoke to North Americans  “the end is near.”

Yet I am not  afraid. Instead, I am energized and hopeful as I continue to watch prophetic scriptures be fulfilled before my very eyes.

For example, when I open my bible to Daniel 12:4, I read that in the last days, many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall increase. This prophecy has been fulfilled before our very eyes.

Surely around the globe, people  all running to and fro on the Internet highway with information as close to their finger tips  as a search box, a keyword, or an icon button.  Scores of millions, perhaps billions of people each hour of the day are rushing to and fro on the worldwide web, soaking up fake news as well as  valid information they have no ability to interpret or comprehend.\. Much knowledge is available yet discernment, truth and wisdom continues to evade most internet travelers.

Such a condition did not prevail in any other generation but ours.

So I understand that those without Christ have legitimate reasons to be afraid in this hour.

Yet to His own, the Lord comforts us with “be not afraid.”

You may ask yourself, “how can this be?” The few own everything, control all, and even during the disastrous month of September 2017, there are those among us whose self centeredness, thoughtlessness, and greed propels them continue to feed  on the flesh, blood and bones of the poor. So how is it that we can live without fear in these perilous times?

The Lord warns His people that we are not to fear those who can kill the body without being able to destroy our spirits and our souls in hell. Only He has that power. I fear not because only God can wipe me off of this planet. He knows my exact location without the need of a GPS tracker. A thousand any fall at my side and 10,000 at my right hand, but  it shall to come nigh me. I already experienced God’s divine protection just  a few years ago with hurricane Irene. No damage. No loss of power, while others less than one mile away were without power and suffered severe damage to their dwellings.

If I die, I will be immediately with Jesus. I will barely be in the ground before the Lord will raise me from the dead, where I will meet Him in the air. If I live, my body will be immediately changed from mortality to eternal longevity. Therefore, dead or alive, the Lord is my protection. I look forward to a future where the Lord Jesus is King of both this planet and the universe. One day soon, I will rule with Him and the rest of His Chosen ones, the elect of God!

Prophecy or Divination?

6 Sep

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

fb_50

Charismatic wolves have opened the doors wide to religious demons with divination masquerading as prophecy.

Have you ever wondered why astrology is forbidden in the bible as an abomination to God?  Having once been an astrologer back in the 70’s, I will venture a guess.

Astrology is one of many forms of divination.  Divination is simply “fortune-telling” or making prognostications with pieces of information–probabilities and possibilities— that are not exact knowledge.

To please God, we must trust Him by walking by faith and not by sight.  To seek to know the future is to “not trust God.” Simple.

Furthermore, behind every act of divination are several assigned demons or fallen angels.  These spirit entities have been around a lot longer than human beings.  They live in a realm where the past, present and the future are a continuum and time is not bound by our linear expectations.  So angels and demons have the capacity to reach into the future or reach back to the past and reveal bits of potential truth to the seeker.  However, pulling out a segment of the future and presenting it before its time can have disastrous consequences.

In “the New Idolatry“ you will find these words concerning divination in the Institutional Church:

Divination within the organized church community is aimed at controlling the lives and destinies of gullible people. Pulpits are filled with diviners and soothsayers–charismatic type hype masters —-that have no other message but one that caters to our flesh.  Like the astrologers, the card layers and such, the divination of old has progressively worsened in our time because the church community is now flooded with false prophets who the ignorant seek “for a personal word from God.” These pseudo messengers leave devastated people in their paths. As they prophesy presumptuously in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, declaring things that He has NOT spoken to them, is comparable to New Age divination.”

Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. So a spirit will tell you that your friend or your neighbor is a witch or a wizard. And it may be true. But they want to make sure you know it so they can put fear in you of that person. Then the demons will use your self-induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring THEIR plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy.

You see, they can’t “do what they do,” without your cooperation and consent.

In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits. About five years ago, someone sent me a message. She had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me and that they were attempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold her. Wouldn’t make any sense because the damage had already been done.  The goal is to project fear into their target by making sure they hear that someone is practicing witchcraft on them.  At that very moment, I was involved in an antagonistic situation with someone who had “witchcraft in her background.” So of course, my eyebrow was raised but I didn’t panic. I was just extra careful and observant. That was seven years ago and nothing has transpired.

The thing to do is to “watch and pray.” Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Also, you would-be prophets, don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone who you care about. Pray and rest in God. If God showed her that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling her to pray. Fallen angels are extremely skilled at using friends, the people even of your own household, to speak evil into your life. So wisdom is certainly necessary. I learned the hard way to “be slow to speak.”

For more information on this subject, the New Idolatry is a must read. So is “The Church of the End-time Zombies, The Fake Jesus and Faces of the Religious Demon. Also Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministries revels how some who claim to be casting out demons are in fact unknowingly helping demons out with their predictions that do not emanate from the Holy Spirit.

Learning From Your Mistakes

20 Jul

Mistakes and Deliverance

Image result for learning from your mistakes

 It has been my experience that the doorway UNKNOWINGLY left wide open to demonic torment is a captive’s fear of ever making a mistake. Demons take great pleasure in tormenting people who they can control with criticism, shame and accusation. As a deliverance counselor, I realize that for each captive, there is a different root cause. For the most part, a fear of making a mistake comes from how you were raised. Those who have been under the authority of extremely judgmental, critical parenting are inclined to either become passive or aggressive in their response to this fear.

The passive ones try to “always be correct and proper” because they are afraid of suffering the consequences that judgmental parenting brings. On my web caseload over the last 14 years, those who are constantly hearing critical, accusing voices in their minds have been raised by critical, judgmental parents. Perfectionism in passive people also leads them to be ardent people pleasers–a breeding ground for depression.

The aggressive folks tend to become the rebels of the world who often seem to make mistakes on purpose and by design because they simply enjoy annoying people. In other words, “if you made me the black sheep of the family, I’m going to play that role with style and gusto! If you told me when I was 10 years old that I am going to be no good, just like my father, well, I am going to be “my father” to the 25th power. So watch me, Mom, as I go through the revolving prison door of recidivism. Watch me and suffer Mom, because you have tried to frame me with a fear of being like a Dad that I didn’t even know, because of you and YOUR failures!

Here is another pattern. January 2 of every year  could be renamed “Get Rid of the Fat Day. There are unseen reasons why some of us got fat. Here is the scenario for the rebel:  ” If you have called me “fat” all of my life when I was not fat but voluptuous and my sensuality disturbed you, Mom—-I am REALLY going to become fat just to show you what FAT REALLY IS AND that I don’t care what you think of my body type!!!!”

Scenarios like these are often played out on a sub-conscious level. Anytime you don’t know who you are and why you are behaving the way that you do, you are a prime target for demonic interference. As a deliverance counselor, this is the reason  why I am less concerned about whether or not you ever experimented with the occult or drugs than I am about how you deal with “making mistakes.” It does not take a great deal of education to become a great learner. Learning involves listening and mimicking. Even if we can’t read or write, life itself is going to teach us something!!!” If you have never made a mistake then you have not learned very much.

For the Christian in particular, God designs the lessons of life disguised in the form of obstacles, mistakes and difficulties through a maze of trials, tribulations, troubles and tests. Why? Because the Christian walk in the spirit by faith in God alone is what earns us our eternal crowns. Without any ashes, there is no beauty. Without failure, there is no glory. Without falling, we really don’t know how to stand. We are sinners who must totally rely on the Holy Spirit’s leading in order to please a perfect God. He is pleased when we can resist the pride of our sinful nature and embrace our ashes.

I was born 73 years ago. I was born again 40 years ago. All I have to give to God is a life of mistakes and failures. These are my infirmities, and like Paul, I actually glory in them. I know that I glory in them because when I speak or write about my mistakes, I have no inner pulling of sorrow, shame or regret in my heart. I know that I glory in them because I give practically no thought or expression to the things that man would consider successful accomplishments. I glory in my mistakes because I have come to know that the power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is all over me when I can acknowledge my own weaknesses.

There is a difference between making a mistake and being a mistake. If I am in Christ, then I am not a mistake. On the contrary, if I rely on “self,” then I am functioning as a mistake. What the bible confirms is that God did not believe that I was a mistake or I would not be here. God does not believe that YOU are a mistake or YOU would not be here either. When we begin to see even an iota of how big and all-consuming God is, then we will stop worrying about our mistakes and the demons that are assigned to us will be bound and gagged.

Twenty eight years ago, I committed a serious sin that brought about its consequences and its ramifications. On last Friday, the religious demon assigned to me sent me a dream that showed me committing the exact same sin and “loving it.” Demons rarely accuse me of sin because they know that I don’t receive or respond to their guilt trips. However, THIS time, they “got me good” because the dream disturbed at least half of my day. The dream was a mockery. What I found offensive is that I was shown that I still have the desire to do the exact same thing, a sin that would be extremely hurtful to God as well as to other people whom I would certainly hurt.

Do I have the desire to commit the sin again? Absolutely not. Would I do so if tempted? Absolutely not. However, here is the truth of it. The flesh DOES NOT CHANGE! In my flesh, I am STILL capable of committing the exact same sin TODAY!!! Yet, though I am capable, I WILL not do it. Why not? Because I don’t walk in the flesh. I walk in the spirit. And because of Jesus Christ, the desires of my heart and my spirit HAVE CHANGED. There is NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.

You see, Brethren, Christians who are afraid of making mistakes focus on self-righteousness and not on the righteousness of God in Christ. They are not looking to the cross. They are looking to self. They are trying to please God just as they tried to please their earthly parents. Yet our understanding and practice of perfection is totally different from God’s as it pertains to His people. Take Job, as our classic biblical example. He was as perfect as man can get, pleasing to God, yet prior to Calvary.

That was Job’s problem. He was toooo perfect. He had no mistakes to draw from. Without the mistakes, Job really did not know God very well. Once God allowed the devil to attack Job, Job’s hidden mistakes were revealed. He was focused on “self-righteousness. The true nature of God was also revealed. Once confronted by his religious friends, Job became defensive. Defensiveness is an outgrowth of pride. If you are defensive, then even the very thought of making a mistake becomes a bondage to you. On the real, face it. Mistakes are part of our lives and we will keep making mistakes till our last breath. In my book, “Faces of the Religious Demon” are scores of case summaries of professing Christians who religious demons tormented because their captives were afraid of making mistakes.  For one reason or another, deliverance counseling uncovered   a complicated pride system at the root.
