How to Recognize a False Conversion: Testimony of “Anonymous”

18 Jan

By Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

So as to why i contacted you Pastor Pam, and to let you  know a bit about myself. I spent a good portion of last night watching Pastor Pam’s YouTube videos and was struck by many of the exposing statement about the kundalini being at work in the church and its ties to false signs and wonders. As well as having some connection to what you termed spirit rape….to back up a bit to start with what was my first touch or encounter with the Lord.

I was raised in a church and religion free home so i had no knowledge or concept of god really leading up to my conversion. But about 2 months before this encounter a man at my work told me that god loved me unconditionally and gave me a bible. I heard what he said but had no faith for this god or his goodness. fast forward 2 months on a one Friday evening I went and smoked some pot, ate some taco bell and spent about an hour or so in my truck contemplating the universe and its vastness. Trying to reconcile in my mind how it had all come to be and how \ this planet is suspended in this great space by unseen forces and the reality that it is all just to big to take in. After this I drove home to my parents house to go to bed. While walking towards my room I was just stopped by this small wooden cross on the wall with jesus standing in a robe with his hands raised. You know risen jesus not the broken body version. Anyhow while gazing at those little wooden eyes I felt this warmth fall on me and I started to weep…..

i then immediately looked in my room and saw that bible under my bed, that i had been given 2 months earlier. So I went and opened it. It opened to Matthew 5 the beatitudes. 5 was my number in sports and Matthew being my name, I was captivated. As i started to read the words of jesus the warmth over me turned to this electricity moving up and down my body which turned in me crying uncontrollably and eventually saying i love you out of my mouth because the experience just felt so unbelievably good. I knew I was being touched by an invisible force and the closest word i had to the emotion of it was love. I felt loved.

My tears subsided and I quickly fell asleep under this heavy warm blanket presence of peace. I awoke not 3 hours later, as I had an early shift on sat. morning. When i hoped in my truck i noticed my radio was not on the cd I was listening to on the way home. But instead the first lyrics i heard playing where from the song kiss of heaven .”I’m walking a new walk, I won’t be the same again” . As I heard those words I knew they where true and I cried my eyes out almost all day in this realization that God is so very real! And that he had touched me! I cried when the sun came up, i had never seen it with the new eyes i felt i had been given. Like I was seeing with my heart. So something happened for sure …….

Yeah so as to repentance, which at the time I had no vocabulary for it, but immediately lost my desire to smoke pot. I felt convicted for the first time about my sexual relations, and even my foul language.

I didn’t yet have any revelation of the cross or my sinfulness. i just felt loved and whole. and I started to have an inner dialogue with who I thought was God……..

I did have a lot of joy and energy. i wept because it dawned on me that god had designed at the things about our earth and universe. It just overwhelmed me. i was in awe of the design and beauty for the first time.

I used the word conviction. but it was more like i no longer had a desire for pot or swearing, but with the sex i just somehow knew it was wrong in the way i had been having it without commitment. and this was all just kind of in my mind when i woke up. The next few weeks after that experience were full of ah ha moments like that. my mind was just undergoing this big perspective shift

it wasn’t until, maybe 2 weeks later that i reconnected with the guy that gave me the bible, and turns out had been praying for my salvation for almost 4 years, that i was asked the question ” do you believe Jesus died for your sins?” I answered “Yes!” he was super surprised that all of this stuff I’m telling you had happened so hands off on his part. He recognized the drastic change in me and became a very supportive friend of mine. still is today

obviously we are now talking some 12 years later and I did not continue on in this blissful state but started to attend a church as I was excited to find others who were enjoying this sweet revelation of God and his goodness. It was all that long after this that I fell back into old patterns of behavior and lost touch with the spiritual relationship that I had begun with.

As I kept, so to speak, pursuing the spiritual high that I first encountered. I increased my religious intensity and activity. I quit hanging out with my former friends as we had little in common anymore. I started to attend many churches. The seeker friendly ones, pentecostal churches, non-denominational. I was striving to keep my passion alive. I ended up quitting my work because i believed that god had spoken to me that i was to quit my work and trust him for my provision. This was a hard pill to swallow for me. I was always very self-reliant. I then went through a two-year period of fasting food almost every other day with extended fasts worked. And constant bible studying and prayer…..

Yet this young man ended up the victim of spirit rape and other forms of demonic torment. 

This is a false conversion instigated by a fallen angel, Jesus Sananda Immanuel.

Here is my assessment:

When the Holy Ghost leads one to salvation and draws to the cross, He does not lead them to God as Creator but to God as the sacrificial Lamb of God.

The person will first experience his own sinful nature as separation from God. That is the conviction the bible speaks of. He will experience himself as lost and needing a savior. Then,when he turns toward the cross, he may weep over how God Himself took his sins on that cross, suffered and died for him.

Once born again, that person will instantly feel clean, new, like he had never sinned before. He will also feel forgiven. This state of being turns weeping to unspeakable joy. He feels washed, cleansed,brand new with no thought of sin.

This person reports  almost the opposite. He felt awe for God as creator, wept for that recognition and not for himself as a sinner, and God as the sacrifice. Then he see his sins and not that his sins have been forgotten by God, but he reports that he uses flesh own flesh to deal with his sins.

Because of the pot smoking and the meditation, a doorway of communication was opened to the fake Jesus, an imposter called Jesus Sananda Immanuel.

One other important thing. I do not hear any emphasis on the resurrection in your testimony.

Though not providing details, any one who is spirit raped is not saved.  The enemy has no authority or access like that to a born again Christian.

 

There has been an MO that the fake Jesus uses, as a pattern has developed with testimonies of people Sananda has approached. Sananda  typically  draws them in with warm, gooey, loving feelings, leave them high and dry so that they then begin to start the journey of trying to pursue the fake Jesus relentlessly trying recapture those initial feelings and getting deeper into the trap of the enemy.

The real evidence can be found in this person’s own words — As I kept, so to speak, pursuing the spiritual high that I first encountered. I increased my religious intensity and activity. I quit hanging out with my former friends as we had little in common anymore. I started to attend many churches. The seeker friendly ones, pentecostal churches, non-denominational. I was striving to keep my passion alive. I ended up quitting my work because I believed that god had spoken to me that i was to quit my work and trust him for my provision. This was a hard pill to swallow for me. I was always very self-reliant. I then went through a two-year period of fasting food almost every other day with extended fasts worked. And constant bible studying and prayer…..

THIS IS THE STRATEGY OF THE FAKE JESUS, SANANDA.

“Evil Faith In The Church” by Pam Sheppard

13 Nov

“Today, I understand very clearly what Jesus meant when He warned that it is a perverse generation that seeks after a sign. Within the nature of perverse human flesh, a sign seeker is rebellious, disobedient, stubborn and ultimately “wicked” because God’s people are to walk by faith and not by sight.

To allow the devil to validate our God is itself “perverse.” In like manner, the problem for those who are caught up in deliverance is that they use demonic manifestations as signs to confirm their faith. Simply put, they believe in “good” based upon the fact that they see and experience evil. This is an offense to God because He expects His people to believe in Him because HE IS, not because we see the Creator through the manifestations of the creature,— Satan, or his demons and fallen angels.

Evil faith is also manifested when we believe a sign, wonder or message that a religious demon or fallen angel sent to us. For example, I was shown that a particular man was meant to be my husband. I had no interest in him on a natural level, yet evil faith acted as the substance to me building up an attraction, simply because I was in a hurry to have a man for the usual reasons. I married this man. but for the grace of God I could be dead by now.

Have you ever experienced evil faith?”

“Beware of Angels In The Church” by Pam Sheppard

5 Nov

“SOME WANT TO BELIEVE THAT GOD’s angels are the good spirits, that minister to believers by bringing them messages and guiding their lives. Certainly, The angels are “sent forth to minister to the heirs of salvation” (Heb. 1: 14), but not to take the place of Christ or the Holy Spirit. The Apocalypse seems to show that this ministration of angels to the saints on earth, is a ministration of war in the spiritual realm, against the forces of Satan; but there is little indication given of ministry in any other way. After the first Advent, when there was great angelic activity over the wondrous event of the Father bringing the “Firstborn” of the new race (Rom. 8: 29) into the inhabited earth (Heb. 1: 6, R.V.); and again at the Advent of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost to begin His work of forming a Body like unto the Risen Head–and during the early years of the Church–the employment of angels in direct and visible communication with believers, seems to give way to the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit.(Jessie Penn-Lewis)

The entire work of witnessing to Christ, and leading the Church into all truth, has been committed to the Holy Spirit. Therefore all intervention of “angels,” or audible voices from the spiritual realm, claiming to be from God, may be taken as counterfeits of Satan, whose supreme object is to substitute the working of his own wicked spirits in the place of God. In any case, it is best and safest in these days of peril to keep in the path of faith and reliance upon the Holy Spirit of God, working through the word of God.

Fallen angels are getting quite bold these days. But they still have to be invited in. Have any of you been contacted by them?”

“Rejection In The Church” by Pam Sheppard

27 Oct

Two Main Reactions to Rejection: Fear and Pride
“Both fear and pride are present in differing degrees when the flesh responds to rejection. Parental influences, environmental factors as well as familiar spirits assigned to our family lines determine which reaction takes precedence.

Since rejection is a denial of both acceptance, understanding, mutual respect and love, some turn to the safety of their imaginations where they are in control. In the process, they become their own god where they control life events to the desired outcome. This happens a lot in romantic relationships.

The pride reaction to rejection is to respond with rebellion, mocking, accusation,and counter rejection.

Now, here is the deal.

I don’t agree with the deliverance ministry teaching that there is a demon called rejection. So I don’t waste time trying to cast out a spirit of rejection. How we react to rejection is a thing of the flesh.

What I believe happens is that the enemy will set us up to be rejected. Then when we react with either fear or pride, we open ourselves up to demonic infiltration. Why? Because fear brings torment and pride goes before a fall. Also, God resists the proud.

So the enemy’s camp uses rejection to torment the fearful and cause the proud to fall without God’s intervention.

Think of a time when YOU were rejected. How did you react and what happened?”

“Spiritual Discernment in 2012” by Pam Sheppard

28 Jul

cover_the fake Jesus_new

I have been saved, born again since Monday— March 29, 1977 at about 4pm. Yet, once I wrote the book “the Fake Jesus” about 5 years ago, I found myself cleaning out my own temple from the deceptive influence of Sananda, Ashtar and perhaps other so-called ascended masters. You see, this book connects the dots between the church system, the new age movement and the ascended masters, aka the fallen angels. I discovered in retrospect that once the demons lost me to the One True God, they immediately set out to derail His plan for my life. Through dreams and other supernatural experiences, I was deceived on many levels for almost three decades..For 3 years BEFORE I was saved, I was steeped in the occult. I also had healing powers and I was able to see into the future through astrology and other means. Once saved, my occult powers carried over into Christianity without my knowledge primarily because I was ignorant of Satan’s devices. I’ve learned a lot about the enemy in 38 years!

When you examine EVERYTHING, you are actually resisting the devil and he shall flee from you, IF YOU PRESS ON!.

Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness.. When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. . My testimony is too long for one blog. However for the sake of the subject matter at hand, I can testify that I was one who ignorantly made an informal pact with the fake Jesus by not properly severing ALL of my ties to my pre-conversion practices of occultism and mediumship.

Through presumption, I assumed that once saved, ALL of my occultic practices of the past were behind me, since I had burned all of my astrology and occultic books in 1983. My personal testimony is a classic example of how the fake Jesus can fool a true Christian by deception, capitalizing on its target’s ignorance of certain spiritual matters. Hosea’s word continues to ring true.(Hosea 4:6) God’s elect are overwhelmingly deceived and if we are not careful, ultimately destroyed by a lack of knowledge of how “all spiritual manifestations are NOT from God!”Another reason why I share various aspects of my own personal testimony is to give you hope and confidence that the principalities and the powers of heaven shall not win. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony and I am an overcomer.

Here is just one of several examples. I received tongues at a meeting held in Albany New York through the ministry of the late Kenneth Hagin. Hagin is really the founder of the word of faith movement as it is operating today. I have no idea whether or not Hagin was a false prophet or a deceived one. I simply look around as I view Charismania, and I know Hagin by his fruits. Anyway, I never truly embraced the way that I received tongues because it had no resemblance to the way the early church received this gift as revealed in the book of Acts. Yet, I grew to speak prolifically, at my own will, what charismatics call in “a prayer language.”

The reason why I have not been convinced about tongues is that for 25 years, I was not able to find a bona-fide interpreter, nor was I able to interpret myself. So I ask, “Where are the interpreters?” The Holy Ghost does not expect me to throw away my commonsense. If I have prayed off and on for decades to receive the gift of interpretation of tongues as Paul suggests that we all do, 25 years passed and I still found no one, including myself to interpret my “prayer language”, good sense suggested to me that the tongue that I received in 1983 is not from God. So if it is not from God, then who did it come from?

Well, its obvious. It didn’t come from me. I suspect that it came from one of the Ascended Masters, perhaps Sananda or Ashtar. What would be the reason for the demons to desire to imitate tongues? Well, if we don’t know what we are saying when we speak in an “unknown” tongue, we could very possibly be used by demonic beings to “decree and declare” that their will, purposes and agenda be done on earth, rather than that of the will of the Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the One, True and Only Creator–the one that Lucifer rebelled against in the first place.
I have been involved in almost all of what is passing itself off today as emanating from the Holy Ghost. Early on, I was groaning and weeping in very strange ways beginning in 1979.. Kenneth Copeland provided me with the explanation that I was looking for, confirming to me that my strange experience was a manifestation of intercessory prayer. Kenneth taught that the strange weeping and groaning that I did was a sacrificial work for the lost and the bound, emanating in travail from the Holy Ghost. TD Jakes and his “wailing women” seminars concur with Copeland. So Copeland, Jakes and others had me convinced that God was using my travail to break yokes and bondages, ie. setting captives free. Since I believed that the Holy Ghost was using me to intercede, it is only natural that I held on to this strange work.

My mind was certainly unfruitful when I travailed and so often I tried to guess the reason behind it. I convinced myself that much of my groaning and weeping was for sinning preachers to repent. If so, it did not work. They just kept on sinning. I also laughed wildly in the spirit before I even heard of Hagin and Brown’s practice of what is called “holy laughter.”. My laughter was different, as I believed that the Holy Ghost was using me to laugh at the devil. When I laughed, I cried also. I found several scriptures to support my style of holy laughter and so I never tried this phenomena to see if it be of God. I just assumed that it was. The only supernatural experiences that I have not personally experienced is holy dance and shouting, African-American style. Perhaps that is because I have no cultural background in the South and I was not raised in an African-American Church or any church. In other words, holy dancing was not a part of my ancestral upbringing.

Furthermore, even though demons could no longer “step into me and speak,” some of my mediumistic traits DID survive my conversion. Nevertheless, when a counterfeit was exposed by the Holy Ghost in recent years, I have been duty bound to remove it by repenting and disavowing it. For example, I could heal BEFORE I was converted. I sucked pain out of people with my hands, particularly my left hand, BEFORE I was converted—proof that my healing gift was mediumistic and not charismatic, NOT OF THE HOLY GHOST.

Once I realized that my healing gift was tainted, I have made every effort not to touch anyone unless I am sure that I am being led by God to do so. I know today that more was required. I have come to the conclusion that my healing gift was not from God and therefore I vehemently repented, rebuked, resisted and renounced it. Perhaps the Lord will give me the true gift of healing from the Holy Ghost. Perhaps not. I just kept on cleaning house as I press toward the mark of my high calling and truth flooded down upon me like rivers of living waters.. I resisted the devil and he fled from me.

Here is another example of my occultic powers influencing my Christian service. Since I could see into the future through astrology and through dreams BEFORE I was converted, I had never learned the absolute necessity of trying the spirits to see if they be of God. As I look back over my Christian journey, some of my most significant dreams of future events that actually transpired were sent by the Fake Jesus. I see now with a clarity that I have never had before. The fake Jesus uses counterfeits of the Holy Ghost as “a hook.” Whenever I receive information of a futuristic nature in a dream about people I know, I rebuked the spirit of divination. Now I rarely hear from this demon.

In the last seven years, when the Lord wants me to know the future, I just “KNOW IT.” Very quietly. Don’t have to see a thing. I walk in faith these days and I don’t have a need of knowing the future as I once did. I soberly remember the Lord’s warning: A PERVERSE NATION SEEKS AFTER A SIGN! So, yes, I can admit without reservation that I myself have been deceived by the fake Jesus, and it has taken all of 30 years to get clean. There is evidence that I am completely clean but seriously speaking, I can’t yet say that I am absolutely certain. I wait on the Lord for Him to expose what may yet need to be uncovered.

How do I feel as a dedicated believer in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Only and True Begotten Son of God who has been deceived by the Fake Jesus for decades? Do I feel like a failure,–fooled frustrated, faithless ? Bamboozled, run a muck? To that, I must say, emphatically NOOOOOOOO! I am joyous, relieved that real truth has truly revived me and I am free at last!!!! .And I declare, ” BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!!!

You see, in my relentless search for truth, the Holy Ghost has granted me the wisdom to deny all mediumistic gifts once He has exposed them to me. However, He would not expose them to me until I was willing to humble myself, In 2012, I strongly recommend that all my readers humble themselves. To begin the process the first step involves questioning every significant supernatural experience that you have had since you believe you were saved, including your conversion experience. I would not recommend this step to you, if I did not take my own advice. Having been there and done that, I am pleased to report that the quality and consistency of the wisdom that I have received in the last seven years as compared to the previous 27 years, is truly beyond comparison. And the wisdom of God just keeps on coming.

If you have been in the occult, you were in the hands of the fake Jesus. Once you became saved, the fake Jesus assigned a religious demon to you to attempt to make your Christian journey unfruitful. The deception is like a maze or an intricate spider web. You may need help in unraveling the deception that the enemy has woven for years, even decades. Help is available.

Marriage: Divine or Legal: Can’t Be Both!

15 May

Have you ever wondered why you have to go to the government through local city halls to have a legitimate marriage? I know of a situation where the pastor deliberately neglected to sign and deliver the marriage license papers to City Hall, after solemnizing a $20,000 wedding in his church, where the bride (his daughter, by the way) and the groom repeated their vows, supposedly in the holy place called “church.” It was not until the happy couple decided to seek a divorce that they found out that their “marriage” never occurred in the eyes of the law, in spite of the vows they made in church. Seems Daddy knew best. However, Daddy Pastor did not anticipate yet another problem. The children conceived of this church marriage without an official license were illegitimate and had no legal rights.

So is marriage a divine sacrament? Not if the state is in control of it!!!

So then, what about God and gays? The first sex act between a same-sex gender couple broke the laws of God, similar to the sex act between heterosexuals, yet the bride wore white! Marriage is ruled by the state and not by the church ceremony. You have to go to the state to be married and to the state to get a divorce. The church is “ceremonial” only. Gays don’t need the church to be married. Let them go to City Hall for both the license and the ceremony for God has nothing to do with ANY of it.

So——- Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s. I agree with President Obama but not for the same reasons. I agree with Rev. Jessie Jackson and some of the black clergy, but not nearly for the same reasons. That’s the way of politics. You can come to the same conclusions based upon opposite or non-related reasons.

So be it.

PENTECOSTAL CRAZINESS

23 Mar

At 8 minutes 26-34 seconds  of this video clip, a featured  preacher asks a most important question.  He asks: ” Is it possible to be saved, sanctified, Holy Ghost filled and Fire baptized—AND  CRAZY?

The answer to that question is a simple  “no.”

The preacher held up a bottle of prozac, a prescription made out to him.  So the answer is simple.  This particular  preacher is not saved, sanctified, Holy Ghost filled and fire baptized.

Then there  is the illustrious founder and leader of the Full Gospel Baptist Church. Bishop Paul Morton gives a moving personal testimony that this great leader clearly does  not understand.  You see, the voice behind the curtain was NOT the Holy Ghost.  It was the religious demon assigned to Paul Morton with a scheme, a setup.

The purpose?  To convince this worldwide Pentecostal leader  and the millions who follow and listen to him  that praying in tongues is the answer to mental illness.  I KNOW that is not right.  Why? Because I have counseled too many mentally ill Pentecostals and Charismatics—ie crazy tongue talkers. Could it be that the tongues is the  real reason why they actually  lost their minds?  Isn’t tongues considered “mindless praying?”

Yet another good question.

 Morton thinks the Lord was teaching him something. That it was God that took him into a dark classroom.  That God sent him crazy “to teach him something.”

Bishop Morton further  suggests that like Jesus was led into the wilderness to do battle with the enemy, the Lord led him into “a dark place” and was the voice behind the curtain.

 Yet there is one main difference.  Jesus did not lose His mind and end up with a mental breakdown after fasting 40 days. For Morton to openly say  that this voice he heard  behind the curtain—this voice in a dark place— was the Holy Ghost telling Morton to “shut up,” is evidence that this leader of the Full Gospel Baptist is still quite vulnerable.  For since the enemy was able to deceive him the first time and send him crazy in the bargain, he will do so again.

So I join this video as I warn all Pentecostals and Charismatics.  Let’s face it head on.  Too many of you are losing your minds because you have passively accepted all supernatural experience as being “of the Lord,” without trying the spirits to see if they be of God.  This spiritual delusion has existed now for more than a century, as Satan and not God is the author and the finisher of your faith. As such,  Satan is the hidden god behind your altars and he is in control of your pulpits.  As he did to the Pentecostal leaders in this video, the religious demon assigned to you  has the same motive—to take your eyes off of Jesus Christ of Nazareth as tongues becomes your savior.  The enemy is in control of the mental state of your followers. Everyone of you is not crazy but that is the enemy’s goal.  I may offend you but someone has to sound the alarm to wake you up..

 You have been warned.

Women In Ministry: Joined in Barbed Wire!

20 Mar

JOINED IN BARBED WIRE!

ALL MARRIAGES ARE NOT JOINED BY GOD!

When I was an unsaved atheist, God actually did join me in marriage.  I also had sense enough to pick a man who was compatible to me in every way.  Although my first husband  died of a massive heart attack when he was very young, he left me with a jewel, the most important person in my life—my daughter who today is invaluable on so many levels.  However, once I became a Christian, I lost ALL good commonsense, assuming that I could not serve God unless I was joined to a Christian man.

Like all stories, mine can be long and involved so suffice me to put things “in a nutshell.”The  enemy had convinced me that I was called to prison ministry. In fact, a  bald-headed, huge and muscular Mr. Clean looking being came forth in a dream and bellowed at me, “I am an angel sent from God to show you your future.”The “angel” sat me down at a blueprint table and showed me a plan for several huge facilities to house prisoners and substance abusers. At the time, my uncle had promised me 300 acres of land so it “all tied together” in a neat little package. The angel also said “The man you will marry will head up the entire project. You will provide the spiritual and counseling component.”

My full testimony of how I escaped Satan’s traps are in this book. CLICK HERE TO PREVIEW

This dream was then used to draw me into marriages–with not one but two different men with serious felony records–both men sent to destroy me. The first marriage was 3 years later to Billy G., in 1988 and the second marriage in 1996 to Richard C. Billy  was married already but he was in prison. I had dated him in 1979 when he was free , not knowing that  he was married  even then. So one day I went to visit him in prison. Immediately after the visit, a power came on me so strong, with the message “Billy  is THE ONE.” Six months later, we were married in prison. I thought he was going to be released soon, not knowing that Billy  had TWO consecutive  sentences which totaled 27 years. That was 1988. He was released from  prison in December 2010 lived for 5 months and then died of a sudden stroke.

The bottom line is that  the marriage was an 8 year nightmare.  Believe it or not, I was beat down by Billy  in prison, while on a conjugal visit, on more than just one occasion. I would walk out of prison with a busted lip and other abrasions and lacerations.  I thought I was marrying a Christian, when Billy turned out to be a New Age occultist, an amateur warlock  who told me that “he had chains and gates on my soul.”

No he didn’t. On May 10, 1990, Billy  predicted that I would have a car accident in 2 weeks.  Thirteen days later, my car was hit in the back, while I was  on my way to the hospital because of the stress headache that I had for 2 weeks following his “prediction”.  I did not take his prediction seriously, yet interestingly enough,  the headache started the day he spoke his curse. On May 24, 1990,  I was on a 4 lane highway, in the middle of the day, driving about 65 miles an hour, headed for the hospital when my car was hit from behind but not totalled. The power of God came on me and I drove that car like a racecar driver.  When I drove my wreck to the hospital,   I discovered that my blood pressure was approaching stroke level.

  I broke out of Billy’s  barbed wire fence with a  chronic case of hypertension.

Then I met Richard, the love of my life. We met briefly and I told him about my dream from the angel. Richard had architect skills, so shortly after we met, he constructed a fantastic blueprint. I thought he was “the ONE” cause he could oversee building the first site. RICHARD ALSO  was NOT the one. Rich was even worst than Billy, if that could be possible. That was a 9 year nightmare with a heroin addict, a criminal with an anti-social personality. 

But the light broke through the darkness and I was set free from Richard by the hand of God.

As an aside—  Believe it or not, —Billy  sent me a letter two months before his release from prison, an obvious  invitation to “resume our marriage once he was released.” I spoke with him once, a few days after he was released. I was polite but I was firm. He died 5 months later of a stroke, 21 years to the day that he spoke a curse of death upon me.  May 10, 2011. He was buried on Friday, the 13th.  Was that the stroke that Billy had intended for me with his 13 day prediction?   God knows.

What you need to know in all of  this is that “if the enemy worked something against you and “IT WORKED,”  HE WILL TRY AND TRY AGAIN, EVEN USING THE SAME PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS. 

The lessons that I learned are not really for me.  I have the luxury of age, where I can look back over the last 40 years and see that after the death of my first husband, there was no man in God’s plan for me.  In this hour, I must press forward.  The “I’m waiting for my soul mate days” are OVER. Not that I don’t love men and romance because I certainly do.  I just have other priorities today and unfortunately, I have assessed what I desire to do with the rest of my days and “a significant other” is just not in my plans.  I can’t take the risk.

I think the message that I have to pass on to the brethren are summarized in 10 statements:

1.  Don’t just assume that because you are sensual, romantic, excellent spouse material, that there is a husband in your future.  Man was not made for woman.  It is good for him, not to be alone.  Any man who wants a wife can have one.   However, a woman can be alone and do well. 

2.  God did not call anyone “in a team.”  The work that God has for YOU to do as a woman may  not require you to have a husband.  Co-ministry can be rich and rewarding.  However, as a minister for 25 years within the religious system, I have met my share of miserable pastor’s wives.  The grass is not always greener on the other side.

3.  If you are in bondage to your desire for a mate, the enemy will take advantage of this weakness, time and time again. You must overcome the cultural cues embedded EVERYWHERE that you are less than a woman, without a man or without children.

4.  Certainly, fornication is a sin.  However, do not marry anyone JUST to avoid sex outside of marriage. If you slipped and got pregnant, DO NOT MARRY THE MAN  SOLELY FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILD.

5.  THE ENEMY NEVER GIVES UP ON THIS.  I thought that at my age, I  am  far “under the radar,” yet men seem “TO FIND ME, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.”  Even my 90 year old mother has still not gotten over her desire to have a man.  So don’t think that you’ll simply “age out.”  Not so.

6.  Learn to enjoy the simple things of life.  Don’t covet what others have. Learn to love being single. Be thankful that you woke up this morning in your right mind.  Learn to love yourself.  Love your body because its YOURS and not because you desire to seduce a partner with it.

7.  If marriage is for you, develop yourself into the kind of wife that is going to be a blessing to a man.  Don’t expect PRINCE CHARMING unless you are PRINCESS CHARMING.  Don’t depend upon what a  man can do for you.

8.  Don’t settle for anything less than WHO you are.  In fact, since a man’s ego is essential to his being, make sure that he knows who he is and where he is going.

9. The bible was written for and by a generation that for the most part, was not promiscuous.  In other words, “virgins were the norm.”  I have counseled with clients who were technically virgins, yet in the spirit, they were not.  Too much experimentation.  A virgin is a rare species in our time. When sex has been entered into, the body desires more.  It is just a natural thing.  The body will burn for it.  So don’t let Satan condemn you just because you have natural passions.  You can learn ways how to “bring your passions under submission to your own will.”

10.  Last but certainly not least, if you have a dream, a vision or receive a prophetic message which declares that “this is the person for you sent by God,” run like a bat out of hell.  It’s the devil.  God does not choose our mates.  He leaves it up to our own free will.  Don’t just take an isolated case out of the old testament.  You are not Isaac or Rebecca.

Choose your mate with good commonsense.

Be Set Free From the New Idolatry

4 Mar

By Wenona Russ

We all have been here, at that pivotal moment in our lives where we literally NEEDED a word FROM THE LORD.  Those who are truly hungry for God have been at a place where we have been starving for a Word from God.  And rightfully so….God said those who hunger and thirst after righteousness SHALL be filled.

Yet, we all have been at that place where we have NOT been able to hear from God…or we felt that we needed ‘confirmation’ from the Lord regarding ‘a word’ either we ourselves have heard, or a word given to us from others.

This is the reason many are (I can say) literally addicted to church, to sermons, to conferences, to conference calls, to convocations…

Addiction is NEVER a good thing.  I know BeBe and CeCe came out with a ‘gospel’ song years ago called ‘Addictive Love’ and it’s supposed to be talking about how we as believers are addicted to the love of Jesus Christ.

I know we have been saying this cliché for years in the church that they are ‘addicted’ to ‘the word,’ when really they are addicted to CHURCH.  Because the only time they get any ‘word’ is when they are inside of a building being fed ‘a word’ from a man or a woman.

But addiction can be a dangerous thing, even in a spiritual connotation.

If we are not careful, we will become ‘addicted’ to miracles, signs, wonders, and FALSE words said to be from God.  We can be addicted to the supernatural, never questioning THE SOURCE.

Where did this need for ‘confirmation’ of a word that proceeds out of the mouth of God come from?

Do you remember Gideon in the Bible?

Read up on the story of Gideon in Numbers 6.  To make a long story short, Gideon heard from the Lord…yet in verse 17, he turns around RIGHT AFTER hearing from God and asks for a SIGN!

You know…in the Old Testament, God had to deal with people with signs and wonders because MOST of the Israelites simply could NOT hear from God for themselves.  So the Israelites depended a LOT upon others to bring them the Word of the Lord.  This was because Israel stayed in rebellion and disobedience TO GOD almost more than they walked in obedience to God.

Disobedience will MUTE your ability to hear from GOD!

And walking in continued disobedience gives people over to strong delusion! Passivity will also mute your ability to hear from God.  In “the New Idolatry,” Pam Sheppard lays it on the line.  Here is an excerpt:

Some passive Christians are like helpless zombies, unable to take corrective action where necessary.  On the charismatic side, good people have been deceived into accepting all things supernatural as “of the Lord” and consequently, they have made ‘a voice from God’ as the deciding factor in every matter, both trivial and important. Passive believers have also suppressed their personalities to such an extent that they can’t distinguish their own persona from the demonic influences that bind them.”

The Marriage and Soul Tie Scam of The Religious Spirit

3 Mar

By Wenona Russ

I can remember one time I was parked in a parking lot, needing a ‘WORD FROM THE LORD.’

Funny thing was it was regarding whether  or not I should stay at a church I was attending (that’s when I was still part of the organized church system).  I had just gotten off work and was bone tired and I had to preach that night.

I heard a voice so clear…”That is your church home.  I have a work for you to do there….”  Then this voice went onto tell me “…and the pastor is your husband…”

I won’t lie to you:  I did a Sarah when ‘God’ said that…LOL.  Yes, I laughed!  I was like ‘there is NO way that that man is my husband!  He is 15 years my junior…my oldest son is almost his age!’  Then some other things were said about how we were going to build ministry together, blah, blah, blah….

I got a LOT of confirmation on that ‘word’ from several different sources.  We would go to churches and people would prophesy marriage to us both. MANY ‘prophetesses’ and ‘prophets’ prophelied about how we were going to take the city.  The co-pastor of the church even came to me to ‘counsel’ me on several occasions to prep me for marriage to this pastor (who also happened to be her son!)

That word I got in that parking lot led me to stay with that church for a total of 5 years.  And we didn’t end up marrying:  come to find out he was on the DL…and had an incurable STD, all while STILL pastoring that ‘church.’

When that lying spirit of Baal saw that I was not going to fall for that, he sent a ( false) prophetess to this same church to prophelie to an armorbearer and the pastor -a ‘prophecy’ that set off a chain of events that would eventually lead to a church scandal and the pastor marrying a 19-year old…they are still ‘married’ and have a son.  And he is still in his lifestyle, and the young girl plays along as the dutiful first lady of the church…

And the prophetess of Baal that lied to those two has a church of her own now, too.

Let me tell you something:  there is a false spirit out there that knows the desires of our hearts.  It knows what we crave and desire the most.  No secret:  most of us go crying on the altar or blabbing on Facebook how bad we want a mate, or a ministry, or a car or a house.  So the devil heard your prayers.  So now all he got to do is send a prophet of Baal to lie to you, tell you what you want.  And then we get fooled into thinking these prophets of Baal are really from God because what they said does come true.

That is not the only prerequisite of knowing if someone is a TRUE prophet of God or not.

A TRUE prophet of God is not only going to be able to tell the future-fortune tellers can do that.  A TRUE prophet is going to utter what THUS SAITH THE LORD and THAT ONLY.  A TRUE prophet of God is going to be soaked in OBEDIENCE TO GOD.

When we get hooked on needing confirmation of words from God and seeking after a sign, we are treading on DANGEROUS territory.  VERY DANGEROUS.  Because the enemy mimics EVERYTHING God does.   The enemy can do signs, perform miracles, prophesy, speak in tongues, dance.

So if your diet of the Word of God is more of ‘I-gotta-see-a-sign-I-gotta-see-a-move-I-need-a-confirmation,’ then you are subject to be deceived by the devil.

STOP SEEKING CONFIRMATIONS!!!!

The Word says MY SHEEP KNOW MY VOICE AND A STRANGER THEY WILL NOT FOLLOW in John 10.

Learn to crack open the Word of God, study, get in the Presence of God and learn to Hear from God for YOURSELF.

Needing confirmations is a sign of YOUR UNBELIEF and LACK OF FAITH.  AND LACK OF RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.  If you are not hearing the voice of God, then you are NOT HIS SHEEP.

The people in the Old Testament stayed in rebellion and disobedience, which is why they could never hear God for themselves.  So that’s why you always saw folks asking other folks to tell them what God said.  And the Holy Ghost was not yet given, so they had to rely on others…

But God promised there would come a time when He would write His Commandments on the tables of OUR HEARTS (Jeremiah 31:33).

That way when we sin, the law that is NOT DONE AWAY WITH, but WRITTEN IN OUR HEARTS, would convict us of sin…and-if one is submissive to the work of the Holy Ghost in their lives-will repent of sin.

An unrepentant heart can NEVER hear from God.

I repeat:  AN UNREPENTANT HEART CAN NEVER HEAR FROM GOD!

The only thing that that person will hear is God telling him to repent.  And if he waits TOO long to repent, the Word says God will give him over to a reprobate mind.

So I said all that to say this one thing:  if you need a word from God, make sure there is no unrepentant sin in your life or that you’re NOT walking in pride, disobedience or rebellion.  Because once you do, that’s when a deceiving spirit will come in and tell you THUS SAITH THE LORD…

And MOST OF THE TIME-IF NOT ALL THE TIME-those words and any accompanying ‘confirmations’ will ALL BE A LIE from the PIT OF HELL!!!!  SENT TO DESTROY YOU!!!!!

HE THAT HATH AN EAR LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS SAYING….

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

Are you hungry and thirsty for the WORD OF GOD, but long to learn to study for yourself?

Do you long to no longer be tainted by religion when hearing from God?  Do you want to make sure the Words you are hearing are not filtered through religious sifters?

Click here for resources that teach YOU how to hear CLEARLY from God for yourself! For example, the book “Faces of the Religious Demon” by Pamela Sheppard shed light on what happened to me and countless others.  Here is a short quote:

“I don’t believe that there is any area more conducive to demonic deception than in the area of love and marriage, particularly in the lives of wmen called to ministry or to female leaders within the laity. The most popular demonic strategy is to present individuals of either the same or the opposite sex in either a seductive or intriguing form, with the object of arousing various dormant thoughts in the captive, which he or she does not realize exist within.  The deceived believer will become smitten with thoughts of a particular person, as masked for the purposes of prayer, of incresed fellowship, and where the opposite sex is concerned, for ministry and communion in the things of God. When the soul tie is romantic in nature, the religious demon or fallen angel will work in the realm of the passions and the affections of the captive to believe that the party upon whom his or her affections is fixed is also equally affected and mutually enamored.  This is accompanied with a counterfeit “love” or drawing to the partner, with a painful craving for his or her company which almost masters the captive.” (Faces of the Religious Demon)
