“However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
There are some statements & questions Jesus has said or asked that I have struggled with for years. I want to focus on this question during this Easter weekend as millions of Christians around the world celebrate the death, burial & Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I grew up in the catholic church where I was initially introduced to Jesus. He was a partially naked man wearing a crown of thorns on his head, he seemed dead as he hang lifeless on the cross.
Catholic recitals & traditional prayers gave me more information on this Jesus. He was a redeemer & the one you ask forgiveness from because he died to cleanse us from our sins. But there was a catch, he could only forgive us through the help of Mary, the Father or the angels. Some samples of the prayers went like this
I know my sins have wounded Thy Tender Heart,
O My Savior, let me be freed from the bonds of evil through
the most bitter Passion of My Redeemer. Amen.
…O my God, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary
[kiss your Scapular)I offer Thee the Precious
Blood of Jesus from all the altars throughout the world…
O JESUS, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers,
O MOST MERCIFUL JESUS, lover of souls,
I beseech Thee, by the agony of Thy most Sacred Heart,
and by the sorrows of Thine Immaculate Mother,
wash clean in the Thy Blood the sinners of the whole world
who are to die this day
The Jesus I learnt about wasn’t sovereign & above influence, he was a God who got his feelings hurt if I sinned, he needed help to redeem people and had to work in collaboration with almost everyone to just redeem one individual.
I had to perform a lot of confessions as well, as God was almost angry all the time, I had to engage in church practices to soothe him & continually recite prayers to Mary to calm him down. In the process I got stressed and developed OCD tendencies such as repeating menial tasks.
In my teen years, I moved to the Protestant church and met a different Jesus, this one loved more and was easier to get along with. After inviting him into my heart and feeling sensations of love moving in my chest, I felt loved for the first time. I’ve since learnt that love is not a feeling, its in action but that’s another topic.
Feeling that I had finally met the real Jesus, I settled in church and became active in prayer meetings, choir practice, intercessors group etc. I came to find out almost immediately that this Jesus was worse than the one in the catholic church. The demonic attacks started from inappropriate sexual thoughts about Jesus. Hindsight is 20/20 because as I look back, those thoughts distressed me greatly, I never enjoyed them so how could they have come from me? Demons were projecting these thoughts into my mind & they had the right to my mind since I said the sinners prayers and let them in.
I analyze this Jesus I was worshiping and things don’t add up:-
How can someone who lived in Palestine in the 1st century have pale skin, blue eyes? am not claiming Jesus as black either but lets be real here and put our pride aside, something that is hard to do as all races engage in some form of racial pride. But for those who seek truth, you should ask yourself where did this image come from & does it match the people who lived in that area, at that time.
How can a redeemer need help to save you? He either has the power to redeem you or he doesn’t, this is not a team effort where everyone needs to chip in. The teaching of Jesus having a co-redeemer in Mary and other people is a false teaching.
He also asks to be invited into your heart, and that is dangerous as much as it seems simple. Demons can only enter your life when you give them the right to be there, so they trick many to let them in by masquerading as God. Jesus never said anything about entering our hearts. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father and not entering hearts, an imposter is doing that.
Jesus rose up from the dead victoriously defeating sin & death for his chosen people, yet the Institutional church talks about him continually crying and hurting over our sins. How? Jesus said the gates of hell will not prevail on his church & his church is not the institutional church but the believers from the 1st century to now.
When I joined RESCUE, Pastor Pam armed me with information that delivered me from the fake Jesus and gave me healing in my mind from all the assault I went through in the catholic & protestant churches. All those years in the institutional church and I didn’t even know the real Jesus!!
I was worshiping the fake Jesus and the rotten fruits were evident – lack of spiritual growth, not understanding the bible, demonic attacks, mental deterioration to name a few.
When you see the mega churches, crusades where millions go forward & accept Jesus, Christian TV, you can think wow! The church of Jesus is growing but which Jesus because there are many. I think Jesus was giving a clue in that question as well. Don’t be fooled by anything labeled “christian” or “Jesus”
As we celebrate the death & Resurrection of Jesus during this weekend, lets be sober and question long held beliefs & one of the questions is which Jesus are you worshiping?
For those who don’t even know where to start, get a copy of the Fake Jesus, this book was the beginning of my own deliverance and helped me get to know the real Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Just as the spirit of the Anti-Christ has permeated the entire institutional church, it should not be surprising that the enemy of our souls has his hand in the out-of-church movement as well. His goal? To discredit the movement at the ground level. Since I have been a part of the “leave the church scene” for the last 8 years, I have met all kinds of folk, each with a different motive–a different agenda. Yet behind the personalities, the persuasions and the strategies, the enemy is in the midst to bring a stumblingblock against God’s true endtime movement to replace the Harlot.
Churchgoers are varied and diversified,with complex and hidden motives and desires. Out-of-churchers are no less complex. To identify but a few strategies, the out-of-church movement is plagued by the damaged and the deceived. Here are but a few of the enemy’s strategies as they relate to the Harlot, the institutional church:
1. Satan has recruits who have been spiritually raped by the Harlot—former churchgoers who are ruled by an unconscious hatred of Her. Consequently, on a subconscious level, every video they make, every blog they write is compelled by that hatred in a very obsessive fashion. In truth, they are outraged that the church not only abused them but also rejected them like a drunken patron is kicked to the curb and thrown out of “the club.’ There every action breathes “I am gettin even with that whore.”
When you have been stabbed in the heart by people who profess to “be Christian,” it certainly is a hard pill to swallow and Satan knows it. So he is actually the one who staged the abuse and the rejection so that once “out of-church,” Satan can then use their retaliatory attack against the institutional church as a visible indictment od the entire out-of-church movement. As an example, a growing number of damaged ex-churchgoers have YouTube channels and blogs whose sole purpose is to criticize and destroy the Harlot. Yet the enemy ignites their venom toward the goal of making THEM look like merciless and disobedient rebels, in an attempt to do the reverse—discredit the entire out-of-church movement.
2. Satan also has also groomed a new breed of come-out-the church folk who seem to have left the institution because they got tired of following man and desire to wholeheartedly follow God, a noble reason indeed. They speak of intimacy with God, hunger for Jesus and they have left the comfort of stain glass and pews because of an overwhelming love for the Lord and a desire to be led by Him alone. They desire to tear down the Harlot’s walls and to go deeper into a fellowship of closeness with Jesus.
It all sound good.
Yet when you dig deeper and really get to know these folk, all kinds of hidden motives surface. Some are secretly ambitious yet they feign piety. Elitists and separatists are also among them . Yet the worst of it is that many of them have experienced false conversions and they are actually worshipping the fake Jesus Sananda Immanuel. The more they distance themselves from others, the more they teach when they need to be taught, the more they resist any kind of spiritual authority—-the more extreme they become,—- the more they also discredit the out-of-church movement.
There are several other strategies.
However what unites each strategy together to fulfill Satan’s agenda is that they ALL become “religiously non-religious.” In other words, they too become the thing that they are against. They become “religious.” So appalled at anything that even looks like the Harlot, they are against all order, all leadership, all gathering together, all worship—in other word’s they become anti-everything that even remotely reminds them of the IC. As a result , they turn the out-of-church movement into just another sect, pleasing the father of all religion and all sects, Satan himself.
My situation is unique in that as an ordained minister for 25 years, I could not perceive how I could even function in my calling outside of church walls. In fact, when the Lord led me out, He did not provide me with details. He simply said “Pam, If you stay, I cannot use you here. But let them PUT you out.” Nine months later, what I assumed was an impossibility happened. The Harlot PUT me out.
I stayed in my wilderness for the next 7 years. I waited for three years to be sent to another branch of the IC. It never dawned on me that I would not return to a sect or branch of what I had become familiar with, and loved, by the way. Instead, He spoke in 2007 and with these words. ” I am not there. She is like a condemned building. I have judged Her already.” I waited for 4 more years for Him to provide me with a plan and to answer the question, “where do I send folk who come out, and they are seriously damaged?”
In April 2012, I received the plan, Shortly thereafter, the laborers. The faithful five!!!

It was this video clip that birthed the book “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us. I’m not sure, but I suspect the year was 2006. I had recently heard a voice say to me that the entire organized church was akin to a condemned. boarded up dwelling and that the Holy Ghost had vacated it. As a pastor for 25 years at the time, I wa truly s hoping that the message I had received ws not from God. So I decided to take a year and do some research. As I was about to begin by studying church history, when I watched this particular video.
At that point, I had never heard of Dr. Cindy Trimm so I watched the video without any preconceived perceptions of her ministry.
When the clip reached the 2 minute and 42 second point, my book “the Fake Jesus” was conceived, for it was at that exact moment that I heard Dr. Trimm “declare,” I THANK YOU FATHER THAT THE SPIRIT OF THE ASHTAR HAS FALLEN UPON THE PEOPLE at the people were falling slain in the spirit like ocean waves across the entire building where the congregation was assembled.
Astar? That sounded familiar. I first went to my bible and found Ashtoreth, an old testament idol. Once I googled the name “Astar,” Google corrected my spelling to ASHTAR. Beyond a doubt, I was in a state of shock. For the door to aliens, ascended masters, and fallen angels imitating our Lord flung wide open. All because of the 2:42 slide of this video.
False conversions. I call them “counterfeit births.” I suspect that false conversions are the major sign of the great falling away. Clearly, it is rather obvious, even to the least spiritual among us in the world and in the religious world that there is certainly something wrong when there exists such a state of utter religious confusion and doctrinal mumbo jumbo. An understanding of today’s dilemma was prophesied by the Apostle Paul in his revelation to Timothy when Paul wrote that in the last days, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.
Evidently, the primary demonic strategy is deception. Deception is the first stage of the falling away process. One of the goals of this blog is to un-complicate things. So I personally took the first step of self-examination. Once I discovered that there is a fake Jesus, the first thing that I did was to confront the issue of my own salvation, head on. Since it was so supernatural in nature, after more than two decades, I asked myself “Pam, are you REALLY saved? I did what Paul recommended to the Corinthians as recorded in II Cor. 13:5: I examined myself to see if I be in the faith. I proved my self. I examined myself to see if Jesus Christ be IN me.
Now to be IN me is not a physical or a soulical thing. Jesus is not IN my heart because my heart is a part of my soul. No, by the power of the Holy Ghost, He is in my spirit. I examined myself by John 15, to see if there is any fruit in my life. What is fruit? I will address that in yet another post. However, there were 3 things I looked for. Did I experience godly sorrow that worked repentance in me. Did I see my own sinful nature? Was I drawn to the cross or led to the Lord’s sacrifice by the Holy Ghost. Did I understand the resurrection the day I was saved. I realized that I have to first understand it in order to believe that a dead man lives in a physical body, who is now seated at the right hand of God.
I knew BEFORE I even examined my salvation that I was born again. However, I examined it ANYWAY.
So what do you do about a false conversion. You start with YOU. More in part 2.
Are You Worshipping the Fake Jesus?
by Pam Sheppard
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 hypocrits. This attack has a deceptive intent and outcome, in that the devoted ones believe themselves to be more saved than the hypocrits.
However, without an understanding of the Lord’s resurrection, neither the devoted believer nor the hypocrit 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 professiong “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 an 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 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 subtlely 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 fake 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.”
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 opportunitites to “do his job.” So you need to examine yourself and determine which Jesus you have been worshipping and serving.
Here is the test test.
: 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 Begotton 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.
