‘Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: “ As I live,” says the Lord God, “surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became food for every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, nor did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock”— therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand; I will cause them to cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouths, that they may no longer be food for them.”

FOR 16 YEARS, I THOUGHT I WAS SAVED!

CHURCH AND RELIGION DESTROYED ME AND CONFUSED ME!

Spiritual Warfare Library of PSM

Hello, My name is Tee, and this is my story:

For the past 16 years, I had considered myself saved, born again, gone to church my whole life…the whole nine yards. But, throughout those years, I realized that I had continued to be entangled in my sins…For example, I even dibbled and dabbled into occult practices about 4 years ago…I had actually convinced myself that it was all from God! But yet, I was saved??? I also had trouble with keeping my flesh subdued in certain situations, particularly when I would become angry or upset. I practiced idolatry by putting other things before my relationship with God, and not living for God first…the list goes on. Sure, I was a “good person,” whose life on the outside reflected that I may have been a true Christian….I didn’t curse, get drunk, and pretty much lived a decent life…even primarily listened to…

Crucified: By the Church??

Tags

, , , ,

Many sincere and unassuming church-goers are taught to frustrate the grace of God by preaching and teaching a false gospel of choice, followed by an encouragement of false, yet generally accepted religious practices and behaviors. The deception comes in when the person believes such rhetoric and displays such behaviors by acting on them to acquire the “favor of God” or even acceptance from other supposed mature, spiritual believers. The result is a denial of the cross and of the true power of the resurrected JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH. Moreover, it leaves the believer in even worse shape than when they decided to follow the LORD. They become disillusioned and even desensitized to the real truth of GOD.

The following words from my pastor reflects on the nature of spiritual abuse that is prevalent through the institutional church around the globe:

“In a recent session with A RESCUE member, a truth stirs in my spirit that is difficult to express. When I really listened to what was done to her in the church and by the church, all I can say is that she has already been crucified and so she should hopefully expect resurrection. This member’s testimony causes me to realize how much of the world is in the IC and how dangerous it is to look back at Her.

Yet, we must look back in order to recover because we need to know what is it about ourselves that caused us to succumb to spiritual abuse in the first place. Even so, we also have to be careful HOW we look back. Anxiety or inner turmoil serves as a sign that we have not completely gotten over a particular thing. So when this happens, we need to retreat, build up strength in that area and confront it when we are better prepared. This is the path of deliverance counseling. We advance and retreat to fight another day.

I think what got to me about the member’s testimony, is that she has already been to the cross and did not know it. Think of it. You go to the IC to get freedom from the world but find yourself actually in the world, suffering under the religious, hypocritical hands of those who are still in the world and they too don’t know it cause they are too frightened to see that they are the Pharisees and Saducees that crucified Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Some have left the world, even the church world, but like Lot’s wife, the cross has not separated them from the longing that remains in their hearts for the world. THEY REALLY STILL DESIRE TO BE THERE, BUT THIS TIME, TO BE ONE OF THE ACCEPTED ONES.

So I warn everyone who has an ear to hear and an eye to see. There is a religious world in our times which is far more dangerous than other systems that are obviously evil and a part of Satan’s domain. This religious world consists of professing Christians who deny the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ in more ways than one.

The cross symbolizes deliverance from this present evil age (Gal 1:4),—from the powers of darkness (Col 1:13)—from the devils and demons who rule the world under their leader, Satan–(Eph 6:12) and—-on the resurrection side of the cross—WE ARE TRANSLATED INTO THE KINGDOM OF THE SON OF GOD! When we plead the blood, we are telling the enemy that we are dead to his world, that he no longer has authority over us, that we walk in that same power that raised Jesus from the dead.

So think of the horror of going to church to be delivered from the world and this evil age, only to find the same hypocrites who put The Lord Jesus on the cross, have also nailed YOU to it and by so doing, turned YOU loose into the hands of the devil. All I can say is OMG. it is worst than I thought.

More than anyone, it was religion that crucified Him.

Have you been crucified by the IC? The good news is that the Lord’s resurrection is YOUR recovery.”

While already separated from the world and the IC, I had no true watcher of my soul until Pastor Pam Sheppard caused me to see and understand that God has given me a free will to work out the salvation of my soul with sound truth that comes only from respecting the word of God in its purity.  I no longer allow the distractions of created doctrines and religious behaviors of man to keep my mind, will and emotions in a state of religious urgency. My pastor expresses the TRUE love of God without casting judgement, bringing HIS truth to light for the purpose of restoring God’s people with an understanding of what a true conversion is, as well as the simple truths that flow from the true gospel of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH.  She follows the wisdom of His word, which is HIS POWER to admonish and lead others. NOW THAT is true FAITH!

The Soul and False Conversion

Tags

, , , , , , ,

By Pastor Pam

HOW A FALSE CONVERSION OCCURS

Because the spirit and the soul are not separate but  tightly knitted or braided  around each other as are  the ligaments, marrow and joints in our legs, it is difficult to discern the difference between the two.  The soul is easiest to recognize because the concerns and needs of “self” are generally apparent.  We recognize the “body” side of the soul because we can see the results through the activity of the natural frame.  We can see selfishness, ambition, competition, and jealousy  because the body,  through material and natural things, will engage in scenarios that expose self striving.   

However, where we fall short is in our ability  to discern the soul from the spirit, which is also “flesh.” I am considering a gospel account of the words of the Lord when a funeral procession went by. He turned to his disciples and said, “let the dead bury the dead.”  How can the dead bury the dead? What Jesus was actually saying is “let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead.” Meaning: those who are alive in both the body and the soul have a dead spirit.  A dead spirit is one that is separated, alienated, and without God in the world.  That is a dead spirit.  It doesn’t mean that there is no awareness or activity in the spirit.

The spirit of the lost is very much alive in the kingdom of darkness, but he or she is alienated from the kingdom of heaven. It makes itself known through various nightmares and irrational fears.  When it is active, man’s dead spirit is open to the hellish dark world of spirits ruled over by the Prince of darkness. When it is both active AND powerful, the spirit is capable of a variety of supernatural feats including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience and astral travel or out of body experiences.

When a lost or alienated person “accepts Jesus” as Lord and Savior, it can’t be the spirit who does so because the spirit  of that person is dead, alienated, and walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in those who are disobedient by the lust of their flesh.  In such a condition, the soul has to take over.  In the lost, the soul fulfills the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and the lost person has the nature of self consciousness.

So since a dead spirit cannot “accept God,” the soul takes over in its parts: mind, emotions and volition or will and says, “I accept Jesus as Lord and Savior” and begins a religious ritual that imitates intimacy and relationship. The working of the enemy through the mind or ideas of man quenches the work of the Holy Ghost to quicken that person’s spirit.  For the powers of darkness are keenly clever in working alongside of and simulating the born again experience.

When a person is REALLY born again, the soul takes a back seat.  The Holy Ghost “quickens” the spirit through repentance. As defined by Paul to the Ephesians, to quicken means to be made alive.  As Jesus Christ was raised from the dead physically or bodily, to be born again is to be raised from the dead spiritually. In other words, a dead spirit has been raised to becoming a vessel for the Holy Ghost.  Since the spirit does not have a will, volition is a choice or decision made by the soul.  What the spirit has is intuition. Paul revealed that the reason the spirit is raised from the dead is because “God is rich in mercy.” So the resurrection of the spirit begins in the intuition and then translated into  understanding  by the soul.

When the soul “accepts Jesus,” the spirit remains dead but with great acting skills, the soul can religiously  imitate the things of God. The fallen spirit of man, alienated and separated from God is sunk down into the soul so that the soul manifests as intellect or sensuality, often in both. In such cases, the soul reigns over both the spirit and the body. The way that the new life reaches the spirit is shown in the Lord’s own words: You must be born again.  The Holy Ghost “breathes” where ever He chooses. This is not the decision of man but the will of God.

The believer who has been raised from the dead in the spirit to newness of like is born of the Spirit or “born again.” The Holy Ghost, who takes up a dwelling place in the reborn spirit, has given the believer a revelation of the Cross and the Lord’s resurrection. This revelation is first received in the spirit. As James indicates in his letter, the wisdom that is from above—from the Holy Spirit—is pure, peaceable, gentle, merciful—without any element of the life of the soul—opinions, self views, strife-jealousy. So when a person is born again, the spirit imparts  understanding  to the soul through the mind, will and the emotions.

What is happening among those who claim that “they accepted Jesus,” is that they have done so through the soul and therefore, their spirits have remained dead.  The intellect of one whose spirit is dead is decidedly fallible and becomes the most dangerous of the soul’s gifts because God seekers use their minds to understand spiritual truths.  The scriptures reveal that the soulish man cannot receive the things of the Spirit, because they can only be spiritually discerned.

According to the late great Jessie Penn Lewis, “It is the soulish element in teachers and professors of holiness, which is often the cause of separation and disunion.  There may be, it is true, love in the heart to those who ‘differ,’ but the ‘differences’ divide nevertheless, because the demoniacal powers, able to work upon the soulish element in the believer, always emphasize or exaggerate the difference in “views of truth,” instead of magnifying the points of union, and even drive eager believers to ‘fight’ for their view of ‘truth,‘ under the name of ‘witnessing for God.” It is also the soulish element in Christians which insists upon the minute correspondence of others its ‘views of truth,’ and ‘tithe mint and anise and cumin’, in words whilst leaving ‘undone the weightier matters of the law’—which in the gospel dispensation of the Spirit between believers as the condition of their growth into ‘unity of the faith. ‘In brief, the soul-life, influenced by evil supernatural powers, is the main cause of divisions and separation among the professing, and even the true children of God.”

For this reason as pointed out by Sis. Jessie, the churches are filled with nominal worshippers of Christ, who show no marks of a true Christian life within them. In a nutshell, influences that bypass the spirit and only reach the soul may prepare the way by bringing the seeker within the reach of the truth which is read from the scriptures.  Outer strivings may make for a kind  self righteousness that  has a value and place in the world.  However, by virtue of these outer trappings, such seekers  will be fooled into believing that the strivings of the soul is evidence that he or she is born again.  Not so.  Since God views self righteous as filthy rags, the spirits of such seekers is untouched. Dead.  Alienated.  Without God.

Those whose souls imitate salvation are diversified.  Dynamic personalities   sway and move the emotions of others.  Their fruit—like TD Jakes for example—is to move the emotions of the soul.  The problem is that the faith of the hearers stands in the influence or wisdom of people like TD, and not in the power of God.  Intellectuals uses schemes to reach men and bring them to God, some preaching hell and damnation to frighten people to God, others using heaven, prosperity, gospelfests, social fellowship, networking  etc.

The outcome is that people are attracted to the fake Jesus, and not of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What happens is a dangerous thing, so dangerous, that I will have to address it in more detail Part III. Suffice it to say for now, that people who are deceived into believing that they got born again, STILL have a dead spirit.  When dead, the spirit is susceptible to the evil side of the spirit world where psychic power is mistaken for the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Consequently, unsaved people are speaking in tongues, laying hands on others, imparting demons into vulnerable people.  Also, when people with dead spirits pray to the Father in the name of His Son, the one who answers their prayers is the imposter, the Fake Jesus.

Can a person whose spirit has been quickened STILL allow his or her soul to dominate?  Most decidedly YES. These are those who have a sensual relationship with Jesus.  When they speak of “being in His presence,” they are not satisfied unless they can feel the presence of God continually upon their flesh, and almost bi-polar in the spirit, they experience loads of ups and downs akin to spiritual mood swings.  They need to be taught how to walk by faith and not by sight or feeling.  Although the Holy Spirit dwells in their spirits, they often allow the soul to predominate because they do not understand the spirit life and the actions of the human spirit in co-action with God.

In Danger as You Sit on a Church Pew!!!

People are more concerned about blaspheming the Holy Ghost rather than grieving or quenching Him. The ability today to blaspheme Him is literally very remote and and rarely possible because most of the people who have these fears are not even born again. . Yet every time the elect prays in tongues, a language they do not understand, they could very well be cursing and degrading the Holy Spirit and not even know it. God made it plain that what grieves Him the most is to worship other gods before Him. Consider the potential of false worship, including tongues, romancing Jesus, practicing yoga and what is called contemplative prayer, fire tunnels, the prosperity gospel and so much more, AS A MEANS OR WAY TO REALLY OFFEND THE HOLY GHOST!!!! ITS MINDBOGGLING!!!!!!

If I am right, and fallen angels have infiltrated and taken over both the pulpits and the altars of the church, and that as a result, the Holy Spirit is not even there, if He is gone, that in itself is a good thing. Cause if He is not there, then He is not continually quenched or grieved. The problem is really outstanding for the elect of God, those who ARE born again yet they remain in church. THEY HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THEM, IN THEIR SPIRIT. He is definitely grieved and quenched while a truly born again person is sitting on a church pew.

The problem is really outstanding for the elect of God, those who ARE born again yet they remain in church. THEY HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THEM, IN THEIR SPIRIT. He is definitely grieved and quenched while a truly born again person is sitting on a church pew.

I was one of those people for 25 years!!!! HE CALLED ME OUT, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE!!!!! I WAS IN DANGER. Throughout that time while I was there, I saw much evil. It was all around me. Preaching from the pulpit for 25 years, angels were put to work protecting me. In my personal life, I had 2 men sent to me by the devil, each of whom I married and had to divorce both of them to save my own life, in misery for a total of 17 years while a church pastor.

I left in 2004. 14 years ago. NOT ONE SERIOUS ATTACH ALL OF THIS TIME!!!!!!! To read BOUT MY PERSONAL STORY and why you need to come out of the church, you could benefit from my book “Come Out of Her, God’s People.”

Sermonizing as a Hypnotic Art

Tags

, , , ,

By Pam Sheppard

I am not the only one who knows the dangers of inducing an altered state. I found the following statement in a book called “Knowing the Facts about the ASC”. By John Ankerberg and John Weldon:

There are no indications in Scripture that people should enter altered states or trances in order to draw closer to God, a common theme in New Age circles. According to 1 Peter 4: 7 (and other Scriptures), Christians are to be “clear minded and self-controlled” so that they may pray or study Scripture. Thus, the biblical means of spiritual growth and sanctification, e.g. meditation on Scripture, prayer, fasting, “are surely not meant to put us into altered states of consciousness” (2659: 79). Further, as we have argued all along, these states are clearly open doors to the intrusion of demonic spirits.”

THE ALTERED STATE AND THE DENOMINATIONS

I have written extensively about the altered state and the Charismatics. Yet even though the denominational side is different, it can be equally dangerous. Over the last few centuries in the US, particularly the southern bible belt and the migration of Southerners to the north, pagan belief systems and practices got mixed into church dogma for several decades. . For example, in 1979, I joined a denominational church where the members not only frequented root workers to deal with the vicissitudes of life, the founding pastor, a native Caribbean, was also a practicing Obeah warlock. Consequently, witchcraft influences coupled with the fact that most denominational pastors and ministers are also active members of a freemasonry lodge, denominational doorways to Satan are less obvious to pinpoint. Add to this mix the Hispanic influence on religion via the practice of Santeria as well as the pervasive mysticism of Catholicism, and denominational paganism, the denominational religious experience may even equal or surpass the pagan power of the Charismatic Movement.

I have found that the affinity for repetition and the stirring up of emotional outbursts, is the denominational doorway to the altered state. Personally speaking, I have seen preachers who hoop their message have the charismatic capability of transforming a quiet, sedate congregation to enter an emotional frenzy through provoking an ASC. Under the influence of the beat of the music and specific keywords within the lyrics, I have witnessed people literally ” go off”, when a soloist or a lead choir singer repeats Jesus over and over again. It goes from Jesus to JEAH, and then congregants start to literally fall out on or over the back of the pew or jump up into the aisle and do what is called the holy dance. Women dressed with fashionable hats, designer suits and high heels find themselves disheveled, hat and shoes knocked off, rolling around on the church rug. If you ask any of them to give a summary of the sermon, you will undoubtedly find that they cannot remember, as their minds went blank. Simply put, they were in the grips of an altered state of consciousness.

Now the denominational side is different but can be equally dangerous. How does one get into an altered state within a denominational church? Well, one of the ways is through repetition. There is a lot of repetition in traditional denominational worship services. I studied hypnosis decades ago. A part of putting a person into a trance involves repetition and visualization. Think of the songs. Many of them are hypnotic. Check out various preaching styles. When the preacher uses a repetitive cadence, it can cause people to enter an altered state. Repetition coupled with a hypnotic cadence can lead to the stirring up of emotional outbursts. For example, I have seen preachers who hoop their message, cause a quiet congregation to suddenly erupt into an emotional frenzy that provoked an ASC. I have seen people go off, when a soloist or a lead choir singer repeats Jesus over and over again. It goes from Jesus to JEAH, and then attendees start to literally fall out or jump up and do what is called the holy dance. You ask them to give a summary of the sermon and they cannot as their minds have gone blank.

Furthermore, the authors also warn about the influences and effects of paganism upon the modern world:

Altered states also have important commonalities. They can all impair one’s ability to test reality, to think critically and logically or to remember. They create a passive state in which mental events seem to develop on their own and are simply experienced rather that being controlled. Many also weaken emotional restraints, allowing moods to swing from wild jubilation to deep fear and depression. In addition, they can all create perceptual distortions and hallucinations and precipitate unusual bodily sensations like numbness, dizziness, tingling or rushes of energy…. They can make people hypersuggestible, so they are open to many strange beliefs and are easily influenced by the suggestions of other people. Altered states have the singular ability to make all kinds of improbable events seem exceptionally real and significant…. One final effect of altered states is their apparent ability to facilitate or enhance mystical experience … (2659: 69-70).

In conclusion, to develop ASCs is not to participate in a form of higher consciousness or true spirituality, as New Age proponents would have us believe. Rather, it often involves abnormal, regressive states of consciousness—ones particularly conducive to demonic contact and manipulation. The radical change in worldview is characteristically toward the occult, encouraging both occult practices and occult philosophy. The growing acceptance of altered states by millions of people, their use in psychotherapy, medicine, education, and many other fields is a reflection of the growing influence of paganism in our society. (Ankerberg and Weldon)

As evidenced and confirmed by my own experience with the occult back in the mid 70’s, I discovered by practicing the altered state through self-hypnosis and meditation, I opened a path of communication between myself and seducing spirits. I did not know this at the time as the spirits identified themselves as people I knew who had died– those whom I liked and wanted to communicate with. Then a sequence of events started to evolve in both the content and style of the communications, aka channeling. Through automatic writing, I received religious messages pertaining to both Hinduism and Buddhism. Since I was an atheist, I was neither interested or impressed with these prolific religious teachings. In those days, I simply wanted to know my future more than anything else.

My point is that evil spirits need the altered state in order to directly communicate with us. If you are not actively trying to enter an altered state through purposeful practice, YOU CAN ALSO ENTER AN ALTERED STATE TODAY THROUGH VARIOUS FORMS OF CHRISTIAN WORSHIP LIKE PREACHING OR SINGING. . The most obvious practices are tongues as a prayer language , fire tunnels, slain in the spirit, various forms of wild intercession prayer, even some deliverance ministry practices. Yet for the sake of this article, I focus on the art of PREACHING, particularly among the denominations, especially the Baptists, the Pentecostals and ever increasingly, the Methodists.

PREACHING AND AN ASC

The last time I went to church, I had a memorable experience. This denomination had removed my name off the rolls in June 2004. Therefore, I did not know why I was returning to a place the Lord revealed that I must leave in order to be used by Him. Yet somehow, I knew in my spirit that I had the Lord’s permission. As I write this, I realize that God sent me back to the denomination for the last time, to be tempted by the devil. I was aware that the churches in the Northeast had recently been assigned a different bishop so I decided to visit the conference. IT WAS JULY23, 2008, a Wednesday afternoon.So I said to myself, “I will just sell some books.” The Fake Jesus had just been published so I brought some paperbacks with me to sell. The denomination’s annual conference was being held just a short distance from my home. I had an inner leading to attend.

I thought I was walking in on the business meeting but the new bishop had changed the programming. I actually walked in on a sermon.

Looking around, I observed that very few was paying any attention to the preacher, a man I knew well. Yet the Rev. seemed to be preaching directly at me but he did not even know I was there. I felt something grab me in the chest. This “force” was trying to make me respond to the invitation, come from the back and walk down that long aisle. They would think that I was returning to them. Or that I was repenting or something. I did not want to do it but it was like hands were pushing me in the back, I gave in and walked that aisle. The music was playing loudly, there were about 10 ministers and the Bishop behind the altar rail. I was in a TRANCE!!! I SNAPPED OUT OF IT WHEN I WAS ASKED “ARE YOU BRINGING YOUR MINISTRY BACK UNDER US? I CAME TO MYSELF AND HOLLERED OUT. NO!!! I JUST LOVED THE SERMON!

Actually Rev. Washington seemed to be preaching directly at me but he did not even know I was there. I paid particular attention to him because Rev. Washington was actually the only minister out of 100 of them who called to support me within a few days after they removed my name from the rolls under the guise that I did not pay my annual dues of $660. He informed me that in 3 months, I could be re-instated.

So as Rev. Washington was preaching, I felt something grab me in the chest. This “force” was trying to make me respond to the invitation, come from the back and walk down that long aisle. They would think that I was returning to them. Or that I was repenting or something. I did not want to do it but it was like hands were pushing me in the back, I gave in and walked that aisle. The music was playing loudly, there were about 10 ministers and the Bishop behind the altar rail. I was in a TRANCE!!! I SNAPPED OUT OF IT WHEN I WAS ASKED “ARE YOU BRINGING YOUR MINISTRY BACK UNDER US? I CAME TO MYSELF AND HOLLERED OUT. NO!!! I JUST LOVED THE SERMON!

Two days later, the Lord explained what happened to me. IT WAS THE PREACHING THAT PUT ME INTO AN ASC. AS TO THE PRESSURE I WAS FEELING IN MY CHEST, THE PUSH ON MY BACK, THE LORD SPOKE AND SAID. “IT WAS NOT ME.” I KNEW IT WASNT ME. SO IT WAS SIMPLE TO FIGURE OUT THAT IT WAS A SEDUCING SPIRIT AKA A RELIGIOUS EVIL SPIRIT OR DEMON.

When THE HOLY SPIRIT made The next statement, I was literally SHOCKED.. He said, the 3 dreams that you had in 1979 that led you to that church and to that denomination “did not come from ME. I NEVER SENT YOU THERE. NEXT He said, “that same power that came on you that Sunday in September, 1979, which fell on you and brought YOU to your knees, causing you to groan, wail and weep, IS THAT SAME SPIRIT THAT CAME ON YOU 2 DAYS AGO!!! Both times, IT WAS NOT ME!!!!!

SO DON’T SLEEP ON THE DENOMINATIONS. The preaching coupled with the emotional worship of the flesh, can also induce an altered state of consciousness and put you in contact with religious demons!!!!!

In conclusion, this particular experience with its subsequent revelations caused me to humble myself and ask God if I was called to ministry. For I recalled yet a similar experience that had occurred in that very church on the day that I responded to the call to ministry in the summer of ’81. At that time, A power DID come on me. A joyous power! The difference is that it was not sudden. Actually for months, I had received at least 10 signs that clearly revealed that I am one of God’s anointed workers. In more than one of those signs, I was called a prophet when I did not even know what a prophet was.

The Holy Spirit answered my question basically out of the scripture. In other words, look at the fruit. Even though He called me while I was in the denomination, He did not send me there as I had believed for 25 years. –I was not to minister to them, or for them or under their religious authority. In fact, the Holy Spirit only revealed my ministry FOR CHRIST UNTIL AFTER I HAD LEFT THEM!!!!

We must try all things.

Why You May Need Deliverance Coaching

, , ,

BY PASTOR PAM

The words of the prophet Hosea ring true. The Lord’s people are definitely destroyed for
a lack of knowledge. With deliverance counseling, demons will often leave on
its own accord once they realize that through deliverance counseling, you have
been armed with spiritual truth. They leave because they sense that your faith
has increased to stand against them. In other cases, demons have been hidden
within a person’s personality for so long, that the Holy Spirit will set up a
situation so that the demons will be exposed and come out of
hiding.

We have been contacted by people from around the country who have sought us to conduct a deliverance. We have cast out demons from someone on another continent by
telephone. What you need to know is that Jesus Christ IS RISEN FROM THE
DEAD! He stood with one foot in Australia and One foot in our little town in
the USA! He is bigger than life. He IS life!!! His Name is Above Every Name.
The demons not only bowed but they came out peaceably without much struggle
and our client has been gloriously set free!!
If you as steadfast do ALL the work that shall be assigned to you, if you bite the
bullet and withstand the test by fighting your feelings, dealing with my
straightfoward style, believe me—NO ONE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WILL HAVE TO
TRAVEL TO NEW YORK, BECAUSE JESUS IS LORD OVER THE TELEPHONE!!!!! YOU TOO CAN BE COMPLETELY SET FREE!!!!

PRE AND POST DELIVERANCE COACHING

Coaching  before and after deliverance is extremely important. Both of these forms of counseling will be conducted by a combination of email and telephone. Be advised that we will not conduct a deliverance upon anyone without a commitment to pre-deliverance counseling. Post deliverance coaching, though optional, is highly recommended to maintain a lasting and continued freedom.
You may need deliverance coaching if the following applies to you:
A person is held captive when he or she has been brought under the power of something that would cause them to lose their God given self control. Even when drug free and not physically addicted, a captive is controlled by an obsessive and compulsive mind that will relive his addictive/compulsive behavior in his thoughts, keeping alive the experience with the help of memory cells in his body that create physical and mental cravings.
Satan and his demons are the unseen forces that send messages to an
unsuspecting mind. of this kind. The captive assumes that his thoughts and
feelings are his own, since he or she experiences powerful urges in his or her
flesh. Demons choose the weakest time and place to attack, and since a
captive’s impulsive and compulsive behavior is predictable, it is a simple
matter for demons to attract, lure and trap a person into addictive/obsessive/compulsive behavior.

The following moments, circumstances and or places of weakness may have acted as doorways to demonic influence that led to your captivity and/or a need for deliverance:
A family and or personal background in the occult or false religions.

False religions include those that are assumed to be Christian.

These so called Christian religions include Catholicism, Jehovah Witness, Christian Science and the Latter Day Saints. (Mormons)

Family or personal involvement with the occult or any form of witchcraft.

The occult also includes a family or personal background in freemasonry.

Pressures in early childhood, including but not limited to physical or sexual abuse.

Other negative family issues include rejection and sibling rivarlry.

Sinful Acts or Habits, including but not limited to the breaking of the 10 Commandments.

Addictions of all kinds.

reincarnation and the use of a Ouija board, to name a few, you have opened a
demonic doorway. These practices have also been linked to religious idolatry
or involvement in mediumship or psychic phenomena. I would include in this
list a family history of Catholicism, Mormonism, Hinduism, Buddhism, any
religion that calls itself Christian, but in any way adds to or detracts from
the gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly the divinity of the Son of God.
3.Pressures in early childhood— When as a child you were denied basic
emotional needs for love, safety and self esteem, you became vulnerable to
demons. Physical and sexual abuse are included here.
4.Emotional shock or sustained emotional pressure. Traumatic events such as
violence, incest or rape as well as a sudden and frightening accidents. These
kind of episodes are breeding grounds for demonic activity. Intense fear can
also lead to denial and escapism.
5. Sinful
acts or habits—Demons have a right of access when you made a conscious
decision to practice sin. Whoever practices sin over a prolonged period of time
is actually imitating the devil’s nature and character and cuts himself off
from the power of God. In particular, demons are attracted to sins of long
duration such as sexual immorality, including not only fornication but sodomy or
homosexuality.
6. Negative emotions —Anger, hatred, un-forgiveness, rejection, and self-pity can lead to rebellion. Rebellion is as
“the sin of witchcraft.”
7.Character defects. Unaware of the impact of unseen forces on your
personality, demons have been empowered to develop your mind, emotions,
feelings, and will. Your personality has become a mixture of your own soul
under the influence of demons.
Our major coaching goal is to help you to recognize hidden battlegrounds in your own life so that you can find victory in the blood of Jesus. There is no such thing as a
generational curse. Why not? Because The blood of Jesus broke all curses at
the cross 2000 years ago.

Dying In Church, By Pastor Pam Sheppard

In my phone sessions  with damaged sheep since 2002, a truth has stirred in my spirit that is difficult to express. Once I really listened to what was done to human beings in the church and by the church, all I can say is that many  have  already been crucified and so they  should hopefully expect resurrection. Reports  of spiritual abuse within the institutional church actually resulted in damage to and the hurting of God’s people are  more than shocking , to say the least.  For me, a terrible wake-up call manifested, compelling me to realize just how much of the world is in the church system  and how dangerous it is to look back at Her once you have left Her.

Yet, we must look back in order to recover because we need to know what is it about ourselves that caused us to succumb to spiritual abuse in the first place. Even so, we also have to be careful HOW we look back. Anxiety or inner turmoil serves as a sign that we have not completely gotten over a particular thing. So when this happens, we need to retreat, build up strength in that area and confront it when we are better prepared. This is the path of deliverance coaching. We advance and retreat to fight another day.

I think what got to me about a particular  testimony, is that the sister has already been to the cross and did not know it. Think of it. You go to the church  to get freedom from the world but find yourself actually in the world, suffering under the religious, hypocritical hands of those who are still in the world and they too don’t know it cause they are too frightened to see that they are the Pharisees and Saducees that crucified Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Some have left the world, even the church world, but like Lot’s wife, the cross has not separated them from the longing that remains in their hearts for the world. THEY REALLY STILL DESIRE TO BE THERE BUT THIS TIME, TO BE ONE OF THE ACCEPTED ONES.

So I warn everyone who has an ear to hear and an eye to see. There is a religious world in our times which is far more dangerous than  other systems that are obviously evil and a part of Satan’s domain. This religious world consists of professing Christians who deny the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ in more ways than one.

So think of the horror of going to church to be delivered from the world and this evil age, only to find the same hypocrites who put The Lord Jesus on the cross, have also nailed YOU to it and by so doing, turned YOU loose into the hands of the devil. All I can say is OMG. it is worst than I thought.

More than anyone, it was religion that crucified Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Have you been crucified by the IC? The good news is that the Lord’s resurrection is YOUR recovery. RESCUE ONLINE CHURCH is waiting for you, to help you heal speedily from the harm and damage you have endured.

Overcoming Strong Delusion and Deception by Pastor Pam

, , ,

What I am about to ask you to do is to “step outside of your personal situation” and see the broader picture for a brief moment.  The problem for all of us is that it is natural for us to be egocentric.  In other words, everything that goes on in the world revolves around us and our immediate situation. I’m asking you to step outside of the boundaries of your own self created circle and consider the state of the organized church system from a historical not a hysterical perspective.

Imagine that an operation was done in a hospital on a person who had a communicable disease but no one knew he was infected  at the time. The doctors and staff were  extremely skilled, the hospital was reputable. They simply did not know that the person that was operated on had a disease that would spread and affect everyone. So the operating room was contaminated in spite of their usual efforts to scrub and sanitize it. The contamination spread throughout the hospital. Everyone who came in there was innocent, not knowing what was going on. Disease continued to spread from one person to the other, because no one properly investigated the cause.

Who is to blame? Is it the hospital? The one with the disease? No. It is the enemy. He planted an evil seed within the organized church system.

ALL are affected by it. There are no exceptions or special cases.

This is the nature of the church age that we live in, the church at Laodicea. Everyone has been contaminated by false and mixed doctrine and practices for at least 100 years or more. Everyone has been deceived, across the board.

The evil seed has birthed countless false conversions. Nevertheless, if you are willing to “shake your salvation tree,” your willingness to do so is a  positive sign that your name   actually IS written in heaven.  The first thing that needs to be pointed out is that names written in heaven were penned before the worlds were framed.  In other words, you are one of the elect, whether deceived or not.  If you have been deceived, God will move heaven and earth to bring the light of truth into your confusion and with that light of truth will come both peace and power.

So know this:  GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL!!!! If you have been deceived, the Lord will see to it that the blinders are ripped off of your spiritual eyes. As it is in the natural, sudden light hitting the eyes is painful.  Yet, once the pain subsides, sight and clear vision is worth rejoicing over.

As a word of hope and deliverance to those of you who have been deceived in church or by people who professed to be Christians, I advise you to stay true to the light because darkness will often be too uncomfortable to stay around the light.  The darkness in the conscience of those of you who are under bondage to either religiosity or charismatic witchcraft will cause you to either humble yourselves and seek deliverance or to lose all ability to discern good from evil.  Hopefully, you will be genuinely convicted and reborn in the spirit.

To fight off delusion and obsession, you must continue to search your own life by the spirit, praying to the Father of Lights, “Lord, I want the unfruitful works of darkness in my life to be exposed.  Show up, demon!  Show yourself!!”

Once you pray in this manner, demons will be exposed all around you and your understanding will be enlightened. Not only will your own tree be shaken, but everybody around you will be exposed, one way or another.  So hold onto your seatbelts, Beloved.  Its quite a bumpy  yet an exciting ride!!!

LET US HELP YOU “SHAKE YOUR TREE.”  CALL 1-888-818-1117 or complete the contact form below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For additional  information on how to overcome delusion and deception across the board, you will definitely want to get a copy of “The Church Of The End-time Zombies.” To be enlightened on how the evil seed was planted, you need the Fake Jesus The New Idolatry provides details on religiosity and charismatic witchcraft. Come Out of Her God’s People will help you understand why the Institutional Church is Not Safe.  Faces of the Religious Demon profiles various cases of demonic torment and explain the components of deliverance counseling.  To be un-deceived regarding deliverance ministries, you need “Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministries.’ Recovery In Christ will help you with walking in the spirit.

In Danger As You Sit On A Church Pew!!!!

Tags

, ,

People are more concerned about blaspheming the Holy Ghost rather than grieving or quenching Him. The ability today to blaspheme Him is literally very remote and and rarely possible because most of the people who have these fears are not even born again. . Yet every time the elect prays in tongues, a language they do not understand, they could very well be cursing and degrading the Holy Spirit and not even know it. God made it plain that what grieves Him the most is to worship other gods before Him. Consider the potential of false worship, including tongues, romancing Jesus, practicing yoga and what is called contemplative prayer, fire tunnels, the prosperity gospel and so much more, AS A MEANS OR WAY TO REALLY OFFEND THE HOLY GHOST!!!! ITS MINDBOGGLING!!!!!!

If I am right, and fallen angels have infiltrated and taken over both the pulpits and the altars of the church, and that as a result, the Holy Spirit is not even there, if He is gone, that in itself is a good thing. Cause if He is not there, then He is not continually quenched or grieved. The problem is really outstanding for the elect of God, those who ARE born again yet they remain in church. THEY HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THEM, IN THEIR SPIRIT. He is definitely grieved and quenched while a truly born again person is sitting on a church pew.

The problem is really outstanding for the elect of God, those who ARE born again yet they remain in church. THEY HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THEM, IN THEIR SPIRIT. He is definitely grieved and quenched while a truly born again person is sitting on a church pew.

I was one of those people for 25 years!!!! HE CALLED ME OUT, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE!!!!! I WAS IN DANGER. Throughout that time while I was there, I saw much evil. It was all around me. Preaching from the pulpit for 25 years, angels were put to work protecting me. In my personal life, I had 2 men sent to me by the devil, each of whom I married and had to divorce both of them to save my own life, in misery for a total of 17 years while a church pastor.

I left in 2004. 14 years ago. NOT ONE SERIOUS ATTACH ALL OF THIS TIME!!!!!!! To read BOUT MY PERSONAL STORY and why you need to come out of the church, you could benefit from my book “Come Out of Her, God’s People.”

The Soul and False Conversion

Tags

, , , , , , ,

By Pastor Pam

HOW A FALSE CONVERSION OCCURS

Because the spirit and the soul are not separate but  tightly knitted or braided  around each other as are  the ligaments, marrow and joints in our legs, it is difficult to discern the difference between the two.  The soul is easiest to recognize because the concerns and needs of “self” are generally apparent.  We recognize the “body” side of the soul because we can see the results through the activity of the natural frame.  We can see selfishness, ambition, competition, and jealousy  because the body,  through material and natural things, will engage in scenarios that expose self striving.   

However, where we fall short is in our ability  to discern the soul from the spirit, which is also “flesh.” I am considering a gospel account of the words of the Lord when a funeral procession went by. He turned to his disciples and said, “let the dead bury the dead.”  How can the dead bury the dead? What Jesus was actually saying is “let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead.” Meaning: those who are alive in both the body and the soul have a dead spirit.  A dead spirit is one that is separated, alienated, and without God in the world.  That is a dead spirit.  It doesn’t mean that there is no awareness or activity in the spirit.

The spirit of the lost is very much alive in the kingdom of darkness, but he or she is alienated from the kingdom of heaven. It makes itself known through various nightmares and irrational fears.  When it is active, man’s dead spirit is open to the hellish dark world of spirits ruled over by the Prince of darkness. When it is both active AND powerful, the spirit is capable of a variety of supernatural feats including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience and astral travel or out of body experiences.

When a lost or alienated person “accepts Jesus” as Lord and Savior, it can’t be the spirit who does so because the spirit  of that person is dead, alienated, and walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in those who are disobedient by the lust of their flesh.  In such a condition, the soul has to take over.  In the lost, the soul fulfills the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and the lost person has the nature of self consciousness.

So since a dead spirit cannot “accept God,” the soul takes over in its parts: mind, emotions and volition or will and says, “I accept Jesus as Lord and Savior” and begins a religious ritual that imitates intimacy and relationship. The working of the enemy through the mind or ideas of man quenches the work of the Holy Ghost to quicken that person’s spirit.  For the powers of darkness are keenly clever in working alongside of and simulating the born again experience.

When a person is REALLY born again, the soul takes a back seat.  The Holy Ghost “quickens” the spirit through repentance. As defined by Paul to the Ephesians, to quicken means to be made alive.  As Jesus Christ was raised from the dead physically or bodily, to be born again is to be raised from the dead spiritually. In other words, a dead spirit has been raised to becoming a vessel for the Holy Ghost.  Since the spirit does not have a will, volition is a choice or decision made by the soul.  What the spirit has is intuition. Paul revealed that the reason the spirit is raised from the dead is because “God is rich in mercy.” So the resurrection of the spirit begins in the intuition and then translated into  understanding  by the soul.

When the soul “accepts Jesus,” the spirit remains dead but with great acting skills, the soul can religiously  imitate the things of God. The fallen spirit of man, alienated and separated from God is sunk down into the soul so that the soul manifests as intellect or sensuality, often in both. In such cases, the soul reigns over both the spirit and the body. The way that the new life reaches the spirit is shown in the Lord’s own words: You must be born again.  The Holy Ghost “breathes” where ever He chooses. This is not the decision of man but the will of God.

The believer who has been raised from the dead in the spirit to newness of like is born of the Spirit or “born again.” The Holy Ghost, who takes up a dwelling place in the reborn spirit, has given the believer a revelation of the Cross and the Lord’s resurrection. This revelation is first received in the spirit. As James indicates in his letter, the wisdom that is from above—from the Holy Spirit—is pure, peaceable, gentle, merciful—without any element of the life of the soul—opinions, self views, strife-jealousy. So when a person is born again, the spirit imparts  understanding  to the soul through the mind, will and the emotions.

What is happening among those who claim that “they accepted Jesus,” is that they have done so through the soul and therefore, their spirits have remained dead.  The intellect of one whose spirit is dead is decidedly fallible and becomes the most dangerous of the soul’s gifts because God seekers use their minds to understand spiritual truths.  The scriptures reveal that the soulish man cannot receive the things of the Spirit, because they can only be spiritually discerned.

According to the late great Jessie Penn Lewis, “It is the soulish element in teachers and professors of holiness, which is often the cause of separation and disunion.  There may be, it is true, love in the heart to those who ‘differ,’ but the ‘differences’ divide nevertheless, because the demoniacal powers, able to work upon the soulish element in the believer, always emphasize or exaggerate the difference in “views of truth,” instead of magnifying the points of union, and even drive eager believers to ‘fight’ for their view of ‘truth,‘ under the name of ‘witnessing for God.” It is also the soulish element in Christians which insists upon the minute correspondence of others its ‘views of truth,’ and ‘tithe mint and anise and cumin’, in words whilst leaving ‘undone the weightier matters of the law’—which in the gospel dispensation of the Spirit between believers as the condition of their growth into ‘unity of the faith. ‘In brief, the soul-life, influenced by evil supernatural powers, is the main cause of divisions and separation among the professing, and even the true children of God.”

For this reason as pointed out by Sis. Jessie, the churches are filled with nominal worshippers of Christ, who show no marks of a true Christian life within them. In a nutshell, influences that bypass the spirit and only reach the soul may prepare the way by bringing the seeker within the reach of the truth which is read from the scriptures.  Outer strivings may make for a kind  self righteousness that  has a value and place in the world.  However, by virtue of these outer trappings, such seekers  will be fooled into believing that the strivings of the soul is evidence that he or she is born again.  Not so.  Since God views self righteous as filthy rags, the spirits of such seekers is untouched. Dead.  Alienated.  Without God.

Those whose souls imitate salvation are diversified.  Dynamic personalities   sway and move the emotions of others.  Their fruit—like TD Jakes for example—is to move the emotions of the soul.  The problem is that the faith of the hearers stands in the influence or wisdom of people like TD, and not in the power of God.  Intellectuals uses schemes to reach men and bring them to God, some preaching hell and damnation to frighten people to God, others using heaven, prosperity, gospelfests, social fellowship, networking  etc.

The outcome is that people are attracted to the fake Jesus, and not of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What happens is a dangerous thing, so dangerous, that I will have to address it in more detail Part III. Suffice it to say for now, that people who are deceived into believing that they got born again, STILL have a dead spirit.  When dead, the spirit is susceptible to the evil side of the spirit world where psychic power is mistaken for the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Consequently, unsaved people are speaking in tongues, laying hands on others, imparting demons into vulnerable people.  Also, when people with dead spirits pray to the Father in the name of His Son, the one who answers their prayers is the imposter, the Fake Jesus.

Can a person whose spirit has been quickened STILL allow his or her soul to dominate?  Most decidedly YES. These are those who have a sensual relationship with Jesus.  When they speak of “being in His presence,” they are not satisfied unless they can feel the presence of God continually upon their flesh, and almost bi-polar in the spirit, they experience loads of ups and downs akin to spiritual mood swings.  They need to be taught how to walk by faith and not by sight or feeling.  Although the Holy Spirit dwells in their spirits, they often allow the soul to predominate because they do not understand the spirit life and the actions of the human spirit in co-action with God.

SHIPWRECKED BY THE SHEPHERDS!!!

‘Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: “ As I live,” says the Lord God, “surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became food for every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, nor did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock”— therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand; I will cause them to cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouths, that they may no longer be food for them.”

The Spiritual War Against You!

Tags

, ,

Many describe themselves as Christians today, yet are careless, lackadaisical, and carry on with a minimum of effort or reflection in their attitude toward God, as it concerns who they are and how they are to walk in Him. It seems that the Christian life has become more about what one “deserves” or is “entitled” to, than about what they can GIVE or how they can GROW and LEAD in TRUTH.

Some people are driven by what they can get out of something or someone. These are the PREDATORS and many sincere church-goers become their PREY. These sincere people succumb to their predator and have become passive and have not exercised their will freely. Consequently, they have unknowingly been spiritually and emotionally manipulated by those in power.

People, there is a serious SPIRITUAL WAR going on out there, and it is not just in the world; it is within the walls of the church building. It is disgusting to GOD and no man-made church organization is immune to this WICKEDNESS.

You may not understand it all, but if you sense in the slightest that something is “WRONG”, and if you believe you are one of HIS, then you need to HEED that warning.

It is imperative that you understand what is going on in the end-time spiritual war that is against you, so I encourage you to get a copy of “The Church of the End-time Zombies”

Why You May Need Deliverance Coaching

Tags

, , ,

BY PASTOR PAM

The words of the prophet Hosea ring true. The Lord’s people are definitely destroyed for
a lack of knowledge. With deliverance counseling, demons will often leave on
its own accord once they realize that through deliverance counseling, you have
been armed with spiritual truth. They leave because they sense that your faith
has increased to stand against them. In other cases, demons have been hidden
within a person’s personality for so long, that the Holy Spirit will set up a
situation so that the demons will be exposed and come out of
hiding.

We have been contacted by people from around the country who have sought us to conduct a deliverance. We have cast out demons from someone on another continent by
telephone. What you need to know is that Jesus Christ IS RISEN FROM THE
DEAD! He stood with one foot in Australia and One foot in our little town in
the USA! He is bigger than life. He IS life!!! His Name is Above Every Name.
The demons not only bowed but they came out peaceably without much struggle
and our client has been gloriously set free!!
If you as steadfast do ALL the work that shall be assigned to you, if you bite the
bullet and withstand the test by fighting your feelings, dealing with my
straightfoward style, believe me—NO ONE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WILL HAVE TO
TRAVEL TO NEW YORK, BECAUSE JESUS IS LORD OVER THE TELEPHONE!!!!! YOU TOO CAN BE COMPLETELY SET FREE!!!!

PRE AND POST DELIVERANCE COACHING

Coaching  before and after deliverance is extremely important. Both of these forms of counseling will be conducted by a combination of email and telephone. Be advised that we will not conduct a deliverance upon anyone without a commitment to pre-deliverance counseling. Post deliverance coaching, though optional, is highly recommended to maintain a lasting and continued freedom.
You may need deliverance coaching if the following applies to you:
A person is held captive when he or she has been brought under the power of something that would cause them to lose their God given self control. Even when drug free and not physically addicted, a captive is controlled by an obsessive and compulsive mind that will relive his addictive/compulsive behavior in his thoughts, keeping alive the experience with the help of memory cells in his body that create physical and mental cravings.
Satan and his demons are the unseen forces that send messages to an
unsuspecting mind. of this kind. The captive assumes that his thoughts and
feelings are his own, since he or she experiences powerful urges in his or her
flesh. Demons choose the weakest time and place to attack, and since a
captive’s impulsive and compulsive behavior is predictable, it is a simple
matter for demons to attract, lure and trap a person into addictive/obsessive/compulsive behavior.

The following moments, circumstances and or places of weakness may have acted as doorways to demonic influence that led to your captivity and/or a need for deliverance:
A family and or personal background in the occult or false religions.

False religions include those that are assumed to be Christian.

These so called Christian religions include Catholicism, Jehovah Witness, Christian Science and the Latter Day Saints. (Mormons)

Family or personal involvement with the occult or any form of witchcraft.

The occult also includes a family or personal background in freemasonry.

Pressures in early childhood, including but not limited to physical or sexual abuse.

Other negative family issues include rejection and sibling rivarlry.

Sinful Acts or Habits, including but not limited to the breaking of the 10 Commandments.

Addictions of all kinds.

COULD IT BE YOU???

1.Patterns and trends— Within your family tree is a long line of substance
abusers giving the appearance of a genetic predisposition. This is NOT a curse
but a predisposition or tendency toward a certain lifestyle. Social and
cultural factors have been influenced by unseen demonic forces wherein by
example, you have developed a vulnerability to the substance abuse demon. A
review of Deuteronomy Ch. 27 points to the following as open
doors:
…idolatry or witchcraft
…oppression of the weak
…sodomy
…dishonoring of parents
…incest …theft
…injustice
…perjury

2. A background in the occult or false religions—If you have practiced
divination, sorcery, roots, santeria, obeah or some form of witchcraft, ie.
astrology, yoga, acupuncture, hypnosis, transcendental meditation, chanting,
reincarnation and the use of a Ouija board, to name a few, you have opened a
demonic doorway. These practices have also been linked to religious idolatry
or involvement in mediumship or psychic phenomena. I would include in this
list a family history of Catholicism, Mormonism, Hinduism, Buddhism, any
religion that calls itself Christian, but in any way adds to or detracts from
the gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly the divinity of the Son of God.
3.Pressures in early childhood— When as a child you were denied basic
emotional needs for love, safety and self esteem, you became vulnerable to
demons. Physical and sexual abuse are included here.
4.Emotional shock or sustained emotional pressure. Traumatic events such as
violence, incest or rape as well as a sudden and frightening accidents. These
kind of episodes are breeding grounds for demonic activity. Intense fear can
also lead to denial and escapism.
5. Sinful
acts or habits—Demons have a right of access when you made a conscious
decision to practice sin. Whoever practices sin over a prolonged period of time
is actually imitating the devil’s nature and character and cuts himself off
from the power of God. In particular, demons are attracted to sins of long
duration such as sexual immorality, including not only fornication but sodomy or
homosexuality.
6. Negative emotions —Anger, hatred, un-forgiveness, rejection, and self-pity can lead to rebellion. Rebellion is as
“the sin of witchcraft.”
7.Character defects. Unaware of the impact of unseen forces on your
personality, demons have been empowered to develop your mind, emotions,
feelings, and will. Your personality has become a mixture of your own soul
under the influence of demons.
Our major coaching goal is to help you to recognize hidden battlegrounds in your own life so that you can find victory in the blood of Jesus. There is no such thing as a
generational curse. Why not? Because The blood of Jesus broke all curses at
the cross 2000 years ago.

So as a labor of love click here for mailing list

paperback www.lulu.com/content/16262055

ebook www.lulu.com/content/16464312

One of the main purposes of “the Church of the End-time Zombies: A Guide To Religious Detox” is to prepare YOU to stand alone as the author did for 8 of the 11 years she has been out of organized religion. Once Pam Sheppard started the online Christian fellowship called RESCUE, she now has supportive friends from several American states and others from South Africa, Dubai, India, Antigua, Finland and Canada. A prolific writer, Pam’s books are really an outgrowth of her main passion: deliverance counseling and pastoring. So this book is a labor of love to all the people around the world that Pam would love to personally pastor, particularly those who have been damaged and deceived by religion as peddled by “the religious.”

Since she is without the resources and capability to personally pastor the millions who are in dire need, she is using this book to coach those who will one day have to stand alone as she did. So as a labor of love, Pam has jam-packed almost 300 pages with loads of truths to prepare you for the evil day. It was a book written a century ago that turned Pam’s life upside down and served as the catalyst to open her eyes to comprehend just how deeply the enemy’s infiltration into the institutional church had personally hindered her walk in the spirit. “War on the Saints” set her free from being a Christian zombie for 25 years.

So this her 7th book is motivated by her democratic belief in the free will of the individual to be un-deluded in this Laodicean age of deception where “Satan has deceived the entire world.” For those who have an ear to hear and an eye to see, this eye-opening book will take you on the narrow road to meet the true and real Jesus Christ of Nazareth for yourself, without the influence or the mediation of the blind controlling and leading the blind. This book will pull you out of your religious ditch and cause you to stand on solid, good ground that will prepare you to “really be born again.” In fact, You will be able to clarify for yourself what has kept you deceived and what you need to know to address your own vulnerabilities and triumph over them.

In her 6 earlier books, Pam established and presented a framework to unravel religious deception which she elaborates on and enhances in “the Church of the End-time Zombies.” Nothing is withheld that would be useful to you but one subject, demonic soul-ties, the subject of its own book. This book is conversational in its language style as Pam personally coaches you from each page.

Then there are those of you who do not have to stand alone, as RESCUE still has the capability to receive your membership. To know more about RESCUE, watch these videos.

Don’t forget to get your coaching book to help you stand alone.

MY TESTIMONY 2018

I’d been a visitor to many different churches in my years growing up and eventually I became  a member of a non-denominational charismatic church.   Although my personal life was very busy, I did manage to get involved in a number of different ministries that I enjoyed.  I developed some very valuable friendships and had some marvelous experiences.  I had to become born again to become a church member. Therefore, I believed that I was born again because a few times I had prayed the, “Sinner’s Prayer,” asking Jesus to, “come into my heart,” to be my Lord and Savior and forgive me of my sins.  I had even been baptized.

But through the years, I always felt there was something, “missing,” something that wasn’t quite right.  I figured it was my lack of faith, or perhaps a troubling relationship that was dogging me.  For years my mother and I had a loving, but contentious and challenging relationship which always caused me a great deal of anxiety.  Incidentally, if you knew me, you knew my anxieties.  I was a well-known, “worry-wart,” from way back.  When I was younger, my teachers teased me about it and when I was in college my friends created a song about it.  Although one of the main tenets of the Christian faith was that one should have complete trust and confidence in God, in this case, my mind was in total defiance.  It was a bafflement to those who knew me that I could trust God for my eternity but not for my day-to-day life, which didn’t make any sense.

As a young teen, I was introduced to the occult through horoscopes, astrology and the Ouija board.  In time as I got older, my interests expanded to include psychic readings and books on witchcraft.  I’d even taken a college course on Satanism where the satanic bible was required reading.  I eventually found that this realm was nothing to play around with.  I started having weird experiences of seeing objects move without their being touched, seeing floating orbs and other phenomena in the darkness of my room as well as having troubling, recurring dreams.  And in addition to this, I also carried around a “spiritual corpse,” of guilt, regrets and anxiety that I could not get rid of no matter what I did.  It was always there in the background, if not in the foreground, tripping me up.  I called it a corpse because I likened it to a dead corpse that was tied to my leg that I had to drag around.  My mind was always churning with tension, worry, frustrations, helplessness and hopelessness that I constantly fought against.  I needed help to make all of this stop.

So I looked to the church for freedom.

From the leadership of the church I attended I sought answers as to how to get free from what I felt was a demonic grip on me.  The answers I found did not satisfy and I was given the impression that the clergy didn’t believe that the enemy could actually harass people.  So, I started trolling Christian bookstores for books on Spiritual Warfare.  I’d read through and purchased as many as I could.  Many of them offered different types of prayers against the workings of the enemy—none of which I found particularly helpful, but I kept searching.

I began to visit different churches that featured deliverance ministries, most notably those that were actually accustomed to dealing with the enemy.  One church had the congregation do various things like walk through salt, or drink, “blessed,” water, they dispensed vials of “blessed” oil to anoint objects in your home, etc.  And although this particular church advertised its success at freeing people from curses and difficulties in their lives which was evidenced by new jobs, cars and houses, it never did a thing for me.  I continued to seek out deliverance ministers who, in the end, simply could not help me.  I only found myself going deeper into the hole from which I sought to escape.  I wouldn’t find out until years later that it wasn’t my anxieties, troubles, or my dabbling in the occult that was the issue.  What I had were only the symptoms of a deeper issue. I had the mistaken notion that my being, “born again,” meant that the devil could not touch me.  But I learned that I’d had a, “false conversion.”  I was never truly born again.  THAT was the problem.  But I’m getting ahead of myself here.

One night, I decided that I’d try just one more time to find a deliverance-“something,” and looked online and saw the name, Pam Sheppard and the word, “deliverance.”  I clicked on it and never looked back.  It was the best decision I’d ever made!

Pastor Pam does not play.  She takes these matters very seriously and comes out like gangbusters!  The first thing Pastor Pam took me to task on was my need to follow Paul’s admonition to, “examine yourself to see if you’re truly in the faith.”  After a simple review based on questions she asked, I had to admit that I was not.  I soon learned from Pastor Pam that mine was a false conversion.  I was not Born Again—no matter how many times I’d prayed those prayers.  This realization was very sobering, and of course, the first thought was, “oh no, I’m goin’ to hell—I’m not covered, I’m doomed!”

This, though, was just the beginning.  As a result of this revelation, she advised me to stop going to church, stop reading the Bible and to stop praying!  This was radical!!  But it made sense because I had to start from ground zero.  I had to be stripped clean of all my religious practices, ideas and beliefs and start with a clean slate.  She patiently worked with me along with a coach, that she assigned, to guide me through various videos on just what was going on in the institutional church and what Christianity had developed into.  I had to unlearn a lot of mixed and false doctrine and misinformation. I finally know and understand that there is no such thing as currying favor with God by the amount of money you give to the church, there is no such thing as being more spiritual or closer to God because you speak in tongues, or the number of ministries in which you’re involved.   You’re not more blessed by God because you have a new car, house, or job.  And there is no such thing as using money to, “sow a seed.”

And there’s plenty more.  Pastor Pam was always quick to cut to the meat of an issue, to get out of you the truth of a situation, and to get truth into you.  She taught me the importance of looking within myself to determine if there was any secret sin, anything at all that the enemy could “hook,” into that the enemy might use to try and block me from my salvation.  So, I was always mindful of that.  In time Pastor Pam invited me to join the fellowship she’d started named, “Rescue.”  Through Pastor Pam I received valuable counseling, coaching and mentoring in addition to a lot of knowledge and understanding through her books, and workshops.  I was fully supported in my pursuit of spiritual freedom.

The more truth I learned the more freedom I gained, and as a result, the enemy had to loosen his grip on me because I was becoming more and more undeceived from his lies.  I recently came to repentance after a sermon that Pastor Pam had given at her July 2018 workshop that she hosted in New York. During the sermon,  which was a rousing sermon on the Gospel, (the full, unadulterated, nothing added to it, nothing taken away, simple Gospel, much like what Peter had done where the focus was entirely on Jesus Christ of Nazareth, The Holy Spirit fell upon me—piercing my heart with the knowledge of my sinful nature.  He took  me straight to the cross where I repented in wrenching sobs and tears.  The next day, while Pastor Pam was preaching, again, on Jesus Christ of Nazareth,  I had another visitation from the Holy Spirit who then took me to that empty tomb and filled me with the glory of His Resurrection and I became truly Born Again.  In seconds, that, “corpse,” of misery I’d carried for so very long, was gone.  Vanquished.  Every troubling memory and thought—gone.  I am no longer in despair.  I am spiritually, mentally and emotionally free.  I am chuckling as I write this because the fact of this still amazes and tickles me.  I was born again on Saturday, July 15, 2018 at 11:55 am.

There is no sinner’s prayer that can compare to the work of the Holy Spirit.  Upon hearing the Gospel preached, if the Holy Spirit decides that this is the time of your visitation, He will lead you to the cross and pierce your heart with the knowledge of your fullness of sin in spite of your goodness, niceness, helpfulness, great intellect, skill, money—or anything else you hold dear.  This powerful revelation tears your heart open.  Again, this is a work of the Holy Spirit, not your mind, your will, nor your prayer.  Then, as the Word of God says, “…though tears may endure for a night, joy comes in the morning.”  Some time soon after your, “dark night of the soul,” with the realization of your sin and repentance, and as the Holy Spirit wills and leads, He takes you to that empty tomb.  He reveals to you the Resurrected Jesus Christ of Nazareth where there are no adequate words to describe your, “down into the marrow of your bones,” praise of Him, your joy, exuberance and marvel at His magnificence not to mention, your gratitude!  He conquered sin and death and lives in an immortal flesh and bone body, and is sitting now at the right hand of the Father.  He is alive!

My revelation is that there is nothing of the workings of salvation that is dependent upon my own hands.  No matter how sincere our  tears, we cannot muster up our  own salvation by praying a prayer.  Neither ourselves, nor our hearts , (which the Word says is desperately wicked), can serve as a substitute for the work of the Holy Spirit.  We cannot exercise feelings of Godly sorrow on our own—for this has nothing to do with what we did last night, last week or last year.  Godly sorrow, as led by the Holy Spirit, encompasses everything that we are.

This is a spiritual transaction based on His work in you, not you, “deciding,” upon the salvation that you desire from Him.  My testimony confirms that  there is hope and salvation for anyone who has had a false conversion.  Again, to all who are reading my testimony, there is hope for you—let go of the old—that is, man’s traditions, and be willing to take a step back and look again, but with fresh eyes.

Because of all that I’ve gained I have to believe that it was an angel of the Lord Himself who had directed me to Pam Sheppard’s website and started me on the path to spiritual freedom and salvation in Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  I am so thankful to Pastor Pam for her walk of faithfulness and for her friendship.  If you have a question about any aspect of Christianity, your church, or your walk of faith, I encourage you to contact Pam Sheppard.  It may be the most important decision you will ever make.  It certainly was for me!

 

Crucified: By the Church??

Tags

, , , ,

Many sincere and unassuming church-goers are taught to frustrate the grace of God by preaching and teaching a false gospel of choice, followed by an encouragement of false, yet generally accepted religious practices and behaviors. The deception comes in when the person believes such rhetoric and displays such behaviors by acting on them to acquire the “favor of God” or even acceptance from other supposed mature, spiritual believers. The result is a denial of the cross and of the true power of the resurrected JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH. Moreover, it leaves the believer in even worse shape than when they decided to follow the LORD. They become disillusioned and even desensitized to the real truth of GOD.

The following words from my pastor reflects on the nature of spiritual abuse that is prevalent through the institutional church around the globe:

“In a recent session with A RESCUE member, a truth stirs in my spirit that is difficult to express. When I really listened to what was done to her in the church and by the church, all I can say is that she has already been crucified and so she should hopefully expect resurrection. This member’s testimony causes me to realize how much of the world is in the IC and how dangerous it is to look back at Her.

Yet, we must look back in order to recover because we need to know what is it about ourselves that caused us to succumb to spiritual abuse in the first place. Even so, we also have to be careful HOW we look back. Anxiety or inner turmoil serves as a sign that we have not completely gotten over a particular thing. So when this happens, we need to retreat, build up strength in that area and confront it when we are better prepared. This is the path of deliverance counseling. We advance and retreat to fight another day.

I think what got to me about the member’s testimony, is that she has already been to the cross and did not know it. Think of it. You go to the IC to get freedom from the world but find yourself actually in the world, suffering under the religious, hypocritical hands of those who are still in the world and they too don’t know it cause they are too frightened to see that they are the Pharisees and Saducees that crucified Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Some have left the world, even the church world, but like Lot’s wife, the cross has not separated them from the longing that remains in their hearts for the world. THEY REALLY STILL DESIRE TO BE THERE, BUT THIS TIME, TO BE ONE OF THE ACCEPTED ONES.

So I warn everyone who has an ear to hear and an eye to see. There is a religious world in our times which is far more dangerous than other systems that are obviously evil and a part of Satan’s domain. This religious world consists of professing Christians who deny the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ in more ways than one.

The cross symbolizes deliverance from this present evil age (Gal 1:4),—from the powers of darkness (Col 1:13)—from the devils and demons who rule the world under their leader, Satan–(Eph 6:12) and—-on the resurrection side of the cross—WE ARE TRANSLATED INTO THE KINGDOM OF THE SON OF GOD! When we plead the blood, we are telling the enemy that we are dead to his world, that he no longer has authority over us, that we walk in that same power that raised Jesus from the dead.

So think of the horror of going to church to be delivered from the world and this evil age, only to find the same hypocrites who put The Lord Jesus on the cross, have also nailed YOU to it and by so doing, turned YOU loose into the hands of the devil. All I can say is OMG. it is worst than I thought.

More than anyone, it was religion that crucified Him.

Have you been crucified by the IC? The good news is that the Lord’s resurrection is YOUR recovery.”

While already separated from the world and the IC, I had no true watcher of my soul until Pastor Pam Sheppard caused me to see and understand that God has given me a free will to work out the salvation of my soul with sound truth that comes only from respecting the word of God in its purity.  I no longer allow the distractions of created doctrines and religious behaviors of man to keep my mind, will and emotions in a state of religious urgency. My pastor expresses the TRUE love of God without casting judgement, bringing HIS truth to light for the purpose of restoring God’s people with an understanding of what a true conversion is, as well as the simple truths that flow from the true gospel of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH.  She follows the wisdom of His word, which is HIS POWER to admonish and lead others. NOW THAT is true FAITH!

How To Leave the Institutional Church

It is time to detox from religion! Pastor Pam Sheppard

If you are a person that must be liked or approved of by others, you will have to refuse your flesh in order overcome churchianity. If you can answer an emphatic “yes,” to the following statements as conditions of your own flesh, refusal will eventually be in order, if you are going to effectively resist the devil:

• I try to avoid being alone

• I let other people decide what to do.

• I get upset when people don’t include me in their activities;

• I am stressed if I don’t include other people in my plans;

• I am easily led;

• I hate any form of confrontation;

• I can’t stand being left out of things;

• I am emotionally dependent upon people.

So one way to crucify your flesh is by refusing to act out its nature. Besides refusing your former nature without Christ, there are times when you also have to refuse your former perception or understanding as it relates to spiritual and religious matters. In fact, refusal is one of the ways that we cast down our imaginations, and every thought that is contrary to our obedience to the inner leadings of the Holy Ghost.

For example, if you have assumed that God would not allow the enemy to deceive you under any circumstances, to resist the devil that is assigned to you, you will have to refuse every thought connected to this false assumption.

Here is a personal example—just one of many.

It was revealed in 2008, that in 1996, when I founded a church, my decision was not led of the spirit but it was a walk in the flesh, coupled with the leading of a religious fallen angel assigned to me. As is the nature of deception, I personally believed that I was led by God at the time. However, with the discernment and the enlightenment that I have received over time, I can look back now with clear, objective understanding. For what  was confusing and complicated in 1996 is both obvious and simple today.

Consequently, once my eyes were fully opened in 2008, I had to exercise refusal by closing the church doors. It should be pointed out that the Lord did not tell me to close the church. Yet His revelation to me was so clear, that this was the action that must be taken, for if He did not cause me to open this church, it followed that i needed to cut off a bad decision at its root and close it down.

Certainly I had to face strong opposition to closing it. Even though I closed down the building, members continued to attend worship services re-located to my daughter’s home until God opened her eyes as well. So in 2008, doors of the church i founded and pastored for 12 years were permanently shut, never to open again.

The crucial point to observe in this example is that as soon as I took the first step of refusal,  two important events occurred: I resisted the devil and the next revelation followed. The Lord made it quite clear to me that since the enemy was the secret force that led me to start this church in the first place, it logically and spiritually followed that other than my family members, each and every person who played a significant role in its operation was sent by the enemy also.

In 12 years, several people were involved. Out of all of them, today, I have contact with three adults from the former church: My daughter, my son-in-law, and his stepfather. For one by one, even the most committed members were progressively proven to be hypocrites. So my word to people pleasers is simply to “let go and let God!!!”

Passivity vs. Common Sense

Tags

, ,

note: this blog is a compiled commentary of
various members of RESCUE, an online fellowship for out of
churchers sponsored by Pam Shepard Ministries.

To find out more
about RESCUE, call
1-888-818-1117 .

Today I was reading a chapter for my social work class about resilience and
coping, and I came across this quote: researchers “found that
placing a problem in the hands of God or using prayer almost
exclusively as a way of resolving a stressful situation was not a
particularly effective way of coping and suggested an external
locus of control. The more active the coping approach, the better
subjects in their study were able to cope.”

I thought this was really interesting! I think this goes along with the notion of
passivity and losing your common sense; I think some people do not
try to solve their problems, but rather place them “in the hands of
God” without using common sense to try to make their situation
better. This kind of reminds me of Amy’s post about common sense,
and how in a break-in situation, prayer was used instead of calling
the police.

This also reminds me of what Jessie Penn-Lewis said in
War on the Saints about passivity being the chief basis of
possession, that passivity is “the primary cause of deception and
possession in surrendered believers.” It’s interesting that
research shows too that being passive about problems in your life
and handing them over to “God” isn’t very effective. I think with
certain things like salvation, it is completely up to God and we
can’t do anything to be saved. But I think also with everyday
problems, it’s silly to leave it to God without taking action for
yourself.

Charismatics think that going into passivity by doing
what they see as “giving it over to God” will be the answer, when
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THE ENEMY WANTS!!! And instead of using the
common sense that God gave them to make sensible decisions,people
are sitting around waiting for some supernatural sign…a lot of
times the answer aint all that magical. It’s just pure, good
old-fashioned, common sense!

Yet another way Charismatics promote passivity is to teach you that
if you’re not doing the right stuff in the spirit realm, that no matter how
hard you try, you will just be walking in the wilderness like the Hebrews,
in addition to what you said about the trusting in God thing, since they’re
so big on “faith.” I remember at my old church – now a lot of the people
there were of low-income, and many of them had to work more than
one job (including me sometimes).

Since the pastor was so big on prosperity, he did a sermon
talking about people with two jobs,saying it wasn’t God’s way
for them to do that, if they were doing the right stuff like “sowing seed”
and all that, they wouldn’t have to work two jobs. Perhaps his real motive
had to do with the fact people were missing church because of working so much.
But, looking back, I can see how the people working two jobs if they had to were
doing the right thing, if that was what their situation called for.
But him preaching things like that would discourage people from
being proactive, because you can’t get motivated to push that hard
if, in the back of your mind, you feel like it won’t work and it
will all be for nothing.

The Bottomline is that People get involved in church and throw all common sense out of the window! Religious rules and traditions are the cause of it. You get so used to following rules and traditions, thinking you are following God, that you become conditioned to doing things out of habit, for no good reason, lacking good common sense! I used to wonder why we did some of the religious practices we did. I was just blindly doing things because I thought they were the right things to do…nevermind anything about being based on truth, being moved by the power of the cross…NOPE, it was nothing like that…I just wanted to go to heaven, so I gave the church/religion power to control my mind & let me THINK that obeying all those religious rules, and doing all those religious works was getting me into heaven. NOPE, It doesn’t work that way! You cannot earn your way into heaven. No amount of religious works will earn you a ticket. AND THAT’S THE TRUTH, RUTH!

True dat! Now here is the down to earth cold skinny on this subject. The powers of darkness would make man a machine, a tool, an automaton, the God of holiness and love desires to make him a free, intelligent sovereign being in his own sphere —a thinking
rational creature created after His own image (Ephesians 4.24)

Therefore God never says to any faculty of man ” Be thou Idle”
God asks for intelligent action in co-operation with
Him!!! (Roman 12:1-2) Satan demands passivity as a
conditon for his compulsory action and in order to unilaterally
subject men to his will and purpose.. (War on the Saints) God wants
us to be intelligent and to use common sense ..wow.. This is a big
change from the teachings in the IC, where you are
suppose to go along with the go along in order to get along..
I guess that is why I was kicked out because I
refused to be passive.

 

To overcome passivity, you need some books: War on the Saints, Faces of the Religious Demon, the Fake Jesus. The New Idolatry and Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry. You can browse at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/pam_s911
