AN END TIME SIGN by Pam Sheppard
Among my faithful Facebook friends is a cadre of serious believers who
continually share YouTube video clips, blogtalkradio programs, and various
articles that dramatically portray how the enemy has infiltrated the Christian
community with a variety of occult, even blasphemous doctrines and practices.
To name but a few, the list is long: the Joel’s Army movement is at the top of
the list because it encompasses It ALL!!
Then there is Christian yoga, the kundalini spirit, TM, people running around the church looking like they are literally on fire, alien encounters, astral travel, slain in the spirit, the laughter and dancing movements, (I refuse to call them ‘holy’), tongue prayer
languages,—the list seems almost endless. In fact, even charismatic sermonizing has caused people to become hysterical, breaking loose in church aisles, appearing to have lost their minds.
Yet, there are even stranger things going on that are a lot less public. As
an example, in my Christian telephone counseling practice of 10 years, I have
come in contact with Christians from around the world who are
constantly “hearing voices” yet they are not mentally ill. In 10 years, I have
been in contact with lots of churchgoers. Among them are people who thought that they were saved, but after careful consideration, they ultimately admitted that they were not—yet—they had spoken in tongues and had often submitted themselves to falling slain in the spirit in various charismatic churches.
Ministers laid hands on many of them to receive what is colloquially known as “an impartation.” When they began to be tormented in one way or the other, most of them sought help from deliverance ministries, yet their condition worsened. In fact, 75% of my Christian client contacts were hearing voices when they telephoned me for help—all of them were active and faithful church members. Some of them I could help, some of them, I could not, for one reason or another.
One thing that all of these strange happenings have in common is the altered
state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.” With that ONE
common denominator, I decided to “investigate” by examining a plethora
of occult websites, to see what devils and demons were openly revealing to
their faithful followers. In other words, “I spied out the land.” I figured
that even though Satan and his troops lie to their followers, they might reveal
something to them that they persevere to hide from true followers of Jesus
Christ of Nazareth. Believe me, it was a disgusting and dangerous assignment , so I do not recommend others do what I did. The blasphemy against the Lord is horrendous and those who are weak in faith might be victimized, even indoctrinated.
agenda which ties into why the altered state of consciousness plays such a
pivotal role in bringing about what the Anti-Christ intends to do. I have
written about this subject in 4 of my 6 books: Faces of the Religious Demon, the Fake Jesus, Come Out of Her God’s People, and the New Idolatry. However, if you are not into Christian non-fiction, then here it is in a nutshell:
With occult followers, it is an easy thing to do because they willingly put
themselves into trances by meditation, yoga, chanting, channeling, astral
travel, drugs, etc. With the people in the world, they enter into trances
through sex, drugs, movies, etc. So the enemy had to devise ways to open
doorways in Christians so that “we too will be able to hear the voice of the
Anti-Christ.” Satan is seeking for mankind to lose themselves in an altered
state of consciousness so as to provide an open doorway for demons to “walk in” when the time is right.
What I learned on the occult websites is that the Anti-Christ is going to attempt to pull a global stunt where EVERYONE hears the voice of a stranger, saying the exact same thing at the exact same time. In this way, the son of perdition intends to prove “that he is God” because he will appear to be both omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent–manifesting the qualities of God Almighty. However, the only ones who will be able to hear his voice, will be those who have been opened to “the trance.”
occult doorways were shut down. However, in 1982, I reopened them by heeding to the doctrines and the practices of the charismatic movement. For 25 years, I heard from religious demons, mostly in dreams and sometimes audibly, believing that I was hearing from the Holy Ghost. When the Lord opened my blind eyes to the truth, I shut down ALL of it: tongues, slain in the spirit, the laughter, the travail in the spirit—-I MEAN ALL OF IT. I put up a spiritual blockade over my mind at night, that protects me from remembering what demons try to tell me in dreams. When God speaks to me now, I don’t feel ANYTHING. I simply “know things.” After a day or so I realize, “Oh, the Holy Ghost was here. Imagine that!”
I refuse to even hear “the voice of a stranger.”
