Trying the Spirits in Times of Peril: What the Bible Says

27 Jun

blog_9By Pam Sheppard

Towards the end of the Apostle Paul’s life, he warns Timothy of the perils that would come upon believers in the last days. The peril concerns every single child of God.  NONE OF US ARE EXEMPT.  His ominous letter reads something like this.

The peril concerns every child of God, and no spiritual believer should be so foolish to assume that  he or she  is exempt from peril. Paul’s  prophecy of the Holy Spirit declares, that (1) “some shall fall away from the faith; (2) the reason for the fall will be a giving heed to seducing  spirits. The essence of the  deception is that the operation is looked upon as sincere and pure. (3) The nature of the deception will be in doctrines of demons (4) The way of deception will be that the “doctrines” are delivered with “hypocrisy.” Those who do so will be admired, revered, and believed to be teaching the truth.
Before the Apostle Paul, the Lord Himself pinpointed how the deception would come. through false  prophets: He warned, “”Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My Name, saying, ‘I am Christ:’ and shall lead many astray” (Matt. 24: 4, 5, A.V. and R.V.);”and many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many” (Matt. 24: 11, A.V.).”There shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray [or “deceive” A.V.] if possible, even the elect” (Matt.24: 24)

Consequently, a “try the spirits” premise is to realize and remember  that the peril of deception was predicted  in the bible to be manifested through apparent believers who declare that Jesus is Lord. 
You may need to stop and take a breath on that one.
Try the spirits premise number two is connected to number one.  Most believers  erroneously  assume that every supernatural experience that comes from the enemy is evil and scary.   the truth not being realized that religious demons and fallen angels  work under cover of light (2 Cor. 11: 14). The deception is much stronger if these seducing spirits can use an apparently “good” person to first accept a mixed or false doctrine and then pass it on “as truth.” A sincere, attractive, upstanding person is a much more effective channel to deceive than an obviously raunchy man or woman for the goal of deception is to get you to believe.
 Since “How to Try the Spirits” is a series of blogposts, I don’t want to get too ahead of myself, so I will conclude with premise #3. Let us not forget the revelation of the Apostle John concerning endtimes. John revealed that at the close of the age, the main weapon used by the deceiver for obtaining power over the people of the earth, will be supernatural signs from heaven, when a counterfeit “lamb” will do “great signs,” and even make fire come down out of heaven  to deceive the dwellers on the earth, and thereby exercise  control over the whole world. So premise #3 asks a question.  Should we assume that we are living in endtimes in a perverse nation or even world that seeks after signs?  I suggest to you that it is safer to assume that we are living in the last days. Pentecostals call tongues “fire from heaven” and charismatic churches have adopted a practice called passing through fire tunnels. hmmmmmmm!!!!
In conclusion, my un-deception was both a sudden and a gradual process, beginning in 2002.  The truth is that   I   have   experienced   so   many supernatural signs and wonders  over 3 decades, most of which were from the enemy, pretending to be God. In fact  that I would have to pull out several notebooks to bring them all to mind.  Therefore, I have found that premise number four is essential, and that is, “to try the spirits, the spirits have to try YOU.” In other words, our discernment comes from being tried. As Paul wrote,  our senses need to be exercised to enhance our spiritual discernment. (Hebrews 5:14) We need practice which means the enemy has got to step to us  to attempt to deceive.

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)

Psychic Predictions or Divine Prophecy? By Minister Kellie

20 Nov
Psychic predictions or anointing from God? Fortune teller or prophet? If you hold the title of prophet, you might just be under demonic deception. Here’s why: the devil can find out information too. A fortune-teller had a field day with Apostle Paul in scripture. She ran around announcing who Paul was. Apostle Paul cast a demon out from this woman.What we fail to understand, or bother to take note of, is the fact that devils, fallen angels and demons also have information.
That’s why, if you do go to a fortune-teller they can give you bits of information. If you’ve paid attention to Pam’s teachings, you will note that she expounds on this topic.
I’ll tell you a little story. When I was new in the word of faith church, a so-called prophet used to follow me around with a word. In fact, after every service, this fella’ was doing a side-show. He would start-up the madness during fellowship. Seemed he found a new target in me. One day I just had to politely tell him to stop it. I didn’t know much then, but I knew this guy was out-of-order. Here’s the kicker: members would even ask him if he had a word for them.
Now you tell me, was this fella’ a fortune-teller or a prophet? I say he was a fortune-teller, because he would conjure up a so-called word from the Lord at the drop of a hat. Plus, as you know from Pam’s counterfeit birth teachings, many in the organized church are unsaved. You yourself know that the wheat and the tares will grow together.  You know this from scripture.
Prophet? The word ” prophet ” is not just a Christian word. The definition of prophet is one who foretells the future. As well as one who delivers divine messages. We forget that the worlds definition of divine includes the devil. Some worship the devil. Fortune tellers and witches worship the devil, whether they know it or admit it.

The organized church has absolutely no idea of how to deal with demonic affliction. Consider this: I suffered from depression, a demonic spirit, for years. The organized church promoted worldly counseling. Really? Yes they did. We can’t counsel or talk demons away, they must be cast out. I came to my senses and decided to follow Christ’s directives. Pam cast  the spirit of depression from me and I have not been depressed not one day in 2 years.. But it took years of me mucking about with the church. I knew I had to leave, what kind of church can’t deal with demons? The answer is: the organized church, every last one of them.

I want to give you now, an excerpt from Pam Sheppard’s textbook on the religious demon, entitled ” the New Idolatry:”

In a nutshell, like New Age Mysticism, charismatic witchcraft is the practice of white magic. For the sake of comparison, consider how both a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian would approach a typical problem, namely, a woman seeking to stop the infidelity of her husband.
Pam then goes on to compare the fortune-teller and the Charismatic Christian. Pam  points out in detail how both the occultist and the Charismatic approach the same problem in “supernatural ways.”  In other words, there are no real differences between them.
A classic study on end of time signs, you need this important book.”
