A Fallen Angel Name In Our Times: St. Germain

To my readers, I was deep into the occult for three years, when the Lord snatched me out of it and caused me to become born again on March 29, 1977.  This holiday season, I have already given thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for delivering me from a fallen angel 34 years ago. Nevertheless, my occult background was  so compatible to word of faith, charismatic teachings and practices, that  a I transitioned into them quite easily. For example, I had healing powers as a psychic. I simply transitioned those powers, believing that they were from the Holy Ghost.  My powers were very much like that of Todd Bentley.

If you have had any background in the occult, just know that once you get saved, the devil does not give up on you.  He will use your psychic powers to imitate the gifts of the Holy Ghost.

The year was 1974 and I was an atheist.  I was so earthly that I seemed to be of no spiritual  good. Very practical, very much the cynic.   I first opened up my spirit when I began to study and practice relaxation therapy and hypnosis.  To my surprise, I entered into an altered state of consciousness rather easily, for someone who was as skeptical as myself.  Almost immediately, I was bombarded by spiritual experiences of various kinds.  I believe that the ASC opened the veil to my latent psychic powers.  From 1974-77, I documented in a diary about 3000 dreams, most  were clairvoyant in nature.  Sometimes I dreamed, remembered and documented as many as 10 dreams a night, some of which came to pass the very next day.

From hypnosis and dreams, I began to study astrology into the wee hours of the night.  Consumed by what I believed to be cosmic or planetary predictors of the course of human life, I initiated a study of the astrology charts of the deceased.  I targeted people who died sudden, even violent deaths.  In one particular case of a young man name Frank, I needed to know his exact birthdate and date of death so I went to the graveyard where he was buried and jotted it down from the tombstone in order to construct astrology charts for my study.

Later that same night, as I marvelled over the charts, Henry, a friend of Franks who was assisting me with information about his deceased pal, suggested that I try to contact Frank myself in a séance.  I laughed and laughed.  I did not believe in such nonsense.  However, that very night, I held my first  and only séance in the summer of 1974, never expecting that I would enter into a supernatural realm of which I was totally unaware and ill prepared to contend with.

As six people–three children and three adults, 3 male and 3 female–gathered around my friend’s dining room table in the dark, we began by making fun and nervously giggling.  We thought we were playing just another parlor game.  As we settled down and got quiet, to my amazement, when I raised my head and focused my eyes toward the center of the room, a spirit materialized directly in front of my face!

The being  manifested in the form of a huge head of a man, at least 3 times larger than the size of a normal human head.  Its substance or essence looked like a very thick cloud or a dark room filled with thick cigarette smoke.  However, the “smoke” or “cloud” formed itself into a perfect shape of a man’s head, with a U-shaped hairline, sideburns, a  mustache and full beard, wearing an old-fashioned Ascot in his neck. While doing research for my 4th book, “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” I found a picture of the being that strongly resembles the “smoked head.”  The ascended master who calls himself “St. Germain.  More on him later.

The room had been darkened by pulling the socket out of the walls while the lamps had been lit and on.  The “head” could not be seen in a lit room.  I inserted the plug into the socket and then removed it about three times.  While the room was dark, the “head remained.The third time that I darkened the room, the “head” disappeared suddenly. POOF!

At first I was not afraid, only excited and amazed that my entire world of skepticism and unbelief of supernatural things had just been turned upside down.  As I lay in my bed in the dark that night, I began to experience a sense of apprehension.  Finally I drifted into sleep, only to have an ominous “sleep paralysis” experience which folk from the deep south call “the haints.”  I felt like I was choking.  A heaviness came on me where I woke up thinking that my young daughter was sleeping on top of me.  I patted my body and the bed to see who it was that was smothering me.  I tried to call for help.  However, I had no voice–not even a whisper. I was so afraid at this point that I fainted.  While I was out cold I thought I heard from Frank.  A voice said “Leave me Alone!”

Should You Leave Church? How Will You know?

My personal testimony of how I came to leave  the church is in the first chapters of “Come Out of Her, God’s People”. www.lulu.com/content/10430823 and www.lulu.com/content/7285131.

 In a nutshell, the Holy Spirit will inform you when it is time for you to leave church.  In fact, if it were not for Him, I would still be there.  When the Holy Spirit led me out of church, I was pastoring a work that I had founded myself.  So it had never crossed my mind to completely leave the church. For a minister of the gospel to leave church  after 25 years of faithful service sounded like a preposterous idea to me–absolutely inconceivable.  I was settled and comfortable in the denomination, in spite of the fact that I had never really been embraced with open arms. I had the best of both worlds: spiritual covering from a well-respected denomination that  left me to my own devices. So I had almost complete independence to bring forth pentecostal, word of faith teachings in a denominational setting.

So what happened?  First of all, I had a dream. A very clear, significant dream where the Lord actually spoke to me.  I wanted to believe it was the devil because I didn’t like what I heard and saw in the spirit.  I was called by name. the Spirit said “Pam, I cannot use you in this place. You are a light hidden under a bed.  You MUST leave.  But let them PUT you out!”

Put ME out?  This MUST be the devil, I thought to myself.  They can’t put me out.  I have been a faithful servant in this denomination for 25 years.!!!!

Well, I did not have long to wait. I was at the Y, doing my  afternoon lap swim  when my pregnant daughter came waddling in and screaming “they are after you, Ma! The denomination is investigating you.” I got out  of the pool, sat on its side and listened to my daughter’s emotional report.  She had run into the proverbial grapevine.  Yet this was not gossip.  It was true. The dream was confirmed in less than a week. The denomination was about to PUT ME OUT.

It took 9 months.  I had the dream in September 2003 and the denomination removed my name from its rolls in June 2004.It was June 25th, 2004. I had a dream that morning. I saw my head under the chopping block. I was beheaded. It came to me that I have the same ministry as John the Baptist: Preach repentance and prepare the way for the Lords SECOND coming.

Anyway, I still had my church that I had founded,  The denomination  had no authority or power to close it.  So I continued leading my church, expecting the Lord to send me to another church affiliation. Various sects and word of faith churches made some offers. However,  it was quite clear to me that all they wanted was my money and my attendance at their various meetings and conferences to obtain MORE money through conference fees and donations taxed my church.  We were small and poor. I could not rob my own congregation to send their  hard-earned dollars to an aloof, uncaring mega preacher, just to pay to sit on the front row of some conference.

So I waited 3 years. This time my sign  was more powerful than a dream.  I was wide awake.  I heard a voice in my head ask me this question, “Pam. would you put curtains up at the windows of a condemned building?”  I looked around to see if someone was there,  but I was alone.  I answered in my head “no.’  The voice continued.He talked for what seemed a long time.  Then He said “Pam. You are planning to travel around the world to conduct deliverance training seminars in any church that will open its doors to you.” I answered, “Yes.!”  By that time, I had been to a church in Lawrenceville Ga and one in Bermuda.

The voice then said “Well. Pam. conducting seminars in any church is like putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building, I have already judged HER.”

TO BE CONTINUED.

Leave Church–Why?

Why Leave Church?
.

There are those who are feverishly trying to save the institutional house called “church,” through evangelistic programs and revivals, church reformation attempts, mass media marketing campaigns, and ecumenical collaborations and  compromises.

These are those who believe that emphasis should be placed on saving the institution of  the organized church.  However, I believe the Lord’s declaration of the prevailing power of the church was not referring to her  as an institution, but as a spiritual body of believers who, by not denying His name and keeping the faith, would remain His.  The question is not whether or not the burning house SHOULD be saved.

No, the question goes a lot deeper.  The question is “CAN the burning house be saved?”  Quite frankly, sin and deception have permeated the house so deeply, that only a profound, deep move of repentance and contrition can save the organized church.  As Jesus declared to the 7 churches in the book of Revelation, “Remember therefore, from whence thou art fallen, and REPENT, and do the first works, or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick from its place, except  thou REPENT.” (Revelation 2:5)  Since He clearly states that the candlestick is a metaphor for the church, it is apparent that Jesus Himself will bring down the organized  church system,  the entire thing known today as “church.” However, the most important question to ask today is “has the opportunity for the church to repent expired?”

Well, I believe it has.  For three reasons.

First of all,  too many preachers, even the sincere ones, have made ministry a career rather than a calling. They can’t repent because their pocketbooks are tied to church donations. Unlike TD Jakes, Juanita Bynum, Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen, they did not make themselves independently wealthy from the donations of churchfolk who gave them their start in the first place, a foundation they usurped and became  best selling authors. The livelihood of most full time pastors is dependent upon continuing to do whatever they can to pay their bills and provide  food on their tables and care for their families with something left for retirement. Most pastors  can’t come out of the church simply because  they would experience financial ruin in a failing economy.

Secondly,  repentance would necessitate a fundamental change  in how the gospel is preached.  Preachers are proud folk.  They would rather confess  to some kind of sin of the flesh before admitting that preaching a decisional, come to the altar and accept Jesus, repeat a sinner’s prayer gospel has caused people to invite the fake Jesus into their hearts.

Thirdly, I suspect pulpits have already been taken over by religious demons and devils. The grip of these unseen forces has occurred because God Himself has sent forth a spirit of strong delusion, causing churchfolk to believe a lie. Preachers, even good, sincere, righteous men and women are already under the power of seducing spirits whose doctrines they continue to preach.

So it is time to come out.  If I am wrong, you can go back.  I suggest that you simply ask the Lord in prayer, “Say Lord, is this woman, Pam Sheppard correct?  Are the days of the organized church “done?” Is it a dangerous place?  Should I leave?

I  can tell you that if you ask Him sincerely and you are willing to obey His answer to you, then I can tell you right now that He is going to show you Himself, that you need to come out for your own safety. I explain why in detail in “Come Out of Her, God;s People.” To read further, is up to you.

Meaning of Hypocrite from a Christian Perspective by Minister Kellie

The meaning of a hypocrite is one who does not love you with the pure love of the Lord Jesus Christ.  They are not saved.  Why? Because we know that we have passed from death to life because WE LOVE THE BRETHREN! The haters in your life may come and go. Sometimes they remain, and you become the object of their eternally seething hatred.

My friend and Christian mentor,  Pam Sheppard, wrote an eye-opening book called “Come Out of Her, God’s People. In an astounding personal memoire, Pam explains how she  was a root in dry ground as an ordained minister amongst hypocrites.In fact, Pam recollects  about high-ranking hypocrites she battled with, when  she was in ministry for 25 years in a well-known denomination. . Her surprising revelations inspired me to pen this article.

e-book www.lulu.com/content/10430823 softcover www.lulu.com/content/7285151

The hypocrite  in church is just as lethal as any hater anywhere. Haters were around since the Garden of Eden Who was Cain, but a hater who killed his own brother out of jealousy. Who was Saul, but a hater who spent his time trying to kill David who would be King.

Who were Joseph’s brothers, but a family of haters, who didn’t want to see Joseph do better than them. Who was the prodigal son’s brother, but a hater who got angry because his long-lost brother was favored with a feast.  And look at our precious Lord, Jesus Christ of Nazareth and how a mob of Jewish haters roared ” crucify him “.

Church is often a hotbed of opportunity for a hypocrite.. A hypocrite  in church can deftly hide behind a bible and a prayer. It’s easy for the hater in church, haters in the pews, usually have a long shelf life. Haters thrive in church because too many believers, have a unscriptural view of what it means to be a peace maker. Therefore ” the hater ” has a field day in church, and their covert camouflaged combativeness, and undercover hateful behaviors go unchecked.

When you were a newbie in church, it took you a while to recognize ” the hypocrites “. You thought your mind was playing tricks on you. You wondered how it could be possible that Sister Shirley or Brother Mark could have spread the rumor about you having a crush on the choir director’s husband. You wondered who told the prayer minister, that they thought they saw you coming out of a bar. Could it really have been  smiling church Sister Sarah, who was always calling you to talk about the Lord?

 

What’s wrong with the church hypocrite?  Sadly, I must report that the church hypocrite  is unwashed and not saved. The church hypocrite , who should be pleased as punch because you’ve been delivered, is not pleased. The church hypocrite  hates hearing your testimony.  The church hater doesn’t even want to see you get a crust of bread. And don’t let the Lord call you out from among them. If you are in business for yourself,as I am— the hypocrites will try to cause you to go bankrupt.

As it was in the evil days of Noah so it is now in the organized church.

If you need deliverance from demonic affliction, church abuse or any other burdens, call Sheppard’s Counseling now at (518)477-5759. Pam Sheppard and her team of supervised deliverance minister’s are waiting to serve you. I am a part of Pam’s team. Pam has been ministry for 30 years and her deliverance counseling expertise is second to none. If you would like to read more , an article written by Pam posted  at Pam Sheppard’s Publishing is an eye-opener. You can read further  about Pam’s ministry experience dealing with haters and hypocrites  in high ranks. Hypocrites  hating, are a reality in church, no matter your station.

Watchman Nee and Boldness

Watchman Nee and Boldness

If a prophet of God  is  a bone of contention to you, and you find it difficult to handle what the Lord has called him or  her out to do,  I have to ask you if it’s possible, that perhaps you can’t handle the truth. Sometimes pridefulness prompts a person to prefer a mousey type, who timidly presents truth. This should not be the case, for the Lord God calls us to boldness. Boldness and forthrightness, are marks of a true prophet. Even so, the prophets of the Bible were neither mousey or timid. The prophets of the Bible were not popular, or well liked anyway. Why? One reason is because some find it hard to handle God’s truths .Here is a quote from Watchman Nee.

 Unless God’s child sincerely adhere’s to all the truth of God, it becomes very rough for him to accept this kind of painful humiliating truth…
Should the child of God desire freedom, his folly must be removed. In other words, he must know truth. He needs to appreciate the real nature of affairs. Satanic lies bind, but God’s truth unshackles. Naturally the knowledge of God is going to be costly, for it will shatter the vain glory one has assumed due to past experiences. He looks upon his self as far more advanced than others, as being spiritual and infallible.
How hard hit he will be if he confesses the possibility of his being invaded. Unless God’s child sincerely adheres to all the truth of God, it becomes very rough for him to accept this kind of painful and humiliating truth. One encounters no difficulty in accepting that truth which is agreeable; but it is not easy at all to take in truth which blasts one’s ego…the acceptance of truth is the first step to salvation.
                                                                                                                                                                     (Nee p.122, 1968)
I am a bold person by nature.  To walk in the boldness of the Lord, I had to put a lid upon my  natural persuasion.  In “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” you will find these words I wrote  about myself, concerning how I was born for “such a time as this!”
There is another reason to consider why the Lord Jesus Christ chose me to play such a controversial role in the confrontation of hypocrisy and false doctrine that abounds in the organized church in this day and time.  I believe that my soul was prepared for the part by the way I came into the world.
An only child, I learned early on how to stand alone. Furthermore, I believe that independence, boldness, and a love for truth was implanted in my soul in my mother’s womb and nurtured by my early childhood circumstances and environment. ….. I was an enigma to most adults. Literate and articulate when I was about 3 years old, my Barbadian grandmother, the late  Irene Ford, often found it necessary to explain my words and my behavior to people. 
“Pam be not fresh. Her just talk reeeeal plain cause dey be no fear in she.  Don’t mind she, now! When her be lookin in ya eye so straight and speak  all she mind, da reason be, me no speak no baby talk ta she.”
This is true. Grammie did not talk baby talk to me. Consequently today, I don’t speak baby talk in the spirit.”

The Book of Revelations: Chapter 18:4

The Book of Revelations: Chapter 18:4

An Excerpt from “Come Out of Her, God’s People.” by Pam Sheppard

Whether you are ready to stop going to church or not, especially if you consider yourself “a word person,” than let the words of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, speak to you out of Revelation Chapter 18 verse 4. In this scripture,   the Lord Himself declared “Come Out of Her, My People.”
I challenge the elect   to ask themselves   3 simple questions concerning the Lord’s warning in the Book of Revelations, as follows:

1.Where are “God’s People?”

Could the scriptures be referring to a particular nation or country? No. God’s people are in every nation. Even though America claims to be a Christian, people of diverse persuasions can agree on this one point, namely, that America is really NOT a Christian nation. Let’s face it.The universal place where God’s people assemble for worship is “in the organized church.” It’s the only place that makes sense. In this day and time, without a passport and finances, who can walk out of their native country very easily and re-locate elsewhere? In truth, mass exodus from anywhere today is practically impossible. Jesus would not command us to do the impossible. However, anywhere in the world, we can come out of the organized church by simply no longer attending.

2.What generation of God’s people is Jesus speaking to?

Most of the book of Revelation is about the end of the church age. If the 7 churches
in the book of Revelation represent chronological symbols of church ages
throughout history, than Jesus is talking to the final generation, the church
at Laodicea. It’s a no-brainer that no other church era on earth could top
our own generation in a claim to be “rich and in need of nothing.” (Revelation
3:17)

3.Are we at the end of the church age?

 For all intents and purposes, if we are the church at Laodicea, where those who preach the prosperity gospel actually DO brag on how rich they are, spiritual blindness is clearly and undeniably rampant. When churchgoers haven’t a clue as to the meaning of repentance, rebirth and the resurrection and therein believe that they are saved but they are not, what could be a stronger sign that “we are near or even at the end of the
church age?

 So if you answer in the affirmative to all 3 questions, then Jesus has spoken to YOU! He is warning you at this very moment to come out of the organized church,
and if you don’t, you are going to receive of her plagues.

You don’t have to be a bible scholar, a prophet or even a rocket scientist to
answer these 3 questions. Once you have your answer, then if you are a
true believer in Jesus Christ, you will know, without a shadow of a doubt that
you must “come out of Her.”

In a nutshell, ONE primary reason stands out above all others that should
be enough for the elect to decide to come out of Her. It’s because
fallen angels–religious devils–have infiltrated the entire church system.
 Certainly, they have no part in the true Body of Christ because the real “church” is not a building made with hands. However,   through compromise and
doctrinal distortions of all kinds, there is an invisible, imposter god
undergirding every edifice, regardless of how sincere and faithful the
leadership. Consequently, if you are unknowingly worshiping an imposter,
than you are unknowingly practicing idolatry and breaking the 10
Commandments. The punishment for idolatry is a release of the curses
or “the plagues.” (Deuteronomy 28)

When judgment falls, churchgoers will not be able to find the secret place of the Most High, nor abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Paul warned the Corinthians that they should “flee fornication.” In the spirit, fornication is idolatry. In the words of Klein and Spears in their book “Devils and Demons,” these co-authors offer the elect some
sober and sound advice:

“We need to run, not walk—-as fast as we can and as far away as we can get—from any devils and demons that masquerade as our great God of the Universe.”

Generational Curses: Are They Real?

Do you believe that  curses have been  passed on to you  from your ancestors, as far back as four generations?  If this is what you believe, then you are in denial of the scripture that assures  you  that  those who are in Christ have been delivered from all the power of darkness and the wicked one cannot touch us. (Col. 1:12; 1 John 5:18). No curse can go through the cross of Christ and have dominion over those who are in Christ. We are not under a curse once we have come through the cross. Every spiritual blessing is
for us who are in Christ Jesus (Eph. 1:3). Anyone that insists they are cursed needs to know who they are in Christ, and maybe who Christ is as the Spirit of adoption  (Rom.8:15).  

 

What I have found is that those who have been involved in deliverance ministries have actually brought a curse upon themselves by accepting a  specific generational curse as a fact. As a result, their belief in this teaching actually creates a self-fulfilling prophecy that the worker and the captive actually bring to pass together.As Paul warned the Galatians, any one who adds to or detracts from the gospel of Jesus Christ will become CURSED. Ironically, the generational curses teaching   adds to and detracts from the gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly the  power of the cross. This teaching  promotes a law  that hinders grace, and it is by  grace that we are set free from the curse of the law.  Consequently, those who uphold the   “generational curses” doctrine which states  that Satan and his demons create curses for Christians because of ones ancestors, actually opens the door to a curse.
Taken a step further,  this  false teaching  actually  creates the fear that put those who believe in it in even  more bondage than what they may originally have sustained! We as believers “have not received a spirit of fear but power, love and a sound mind.” If you believe this teaching, you are risking the soundness of your mental state, bringing on further anxiety and stress that may “cause you to faint” when you enter into spiritual battle against demons.

Therefore, if you stand in spiritual warfare  with a deliverance worker against a self-proclaimed curse that was never there in the first place, you forfeit the grace that is needed to set you free. This teaching is particularly dangerous because it implies that Jesus didn’t break the curse on the cross. As such,  it stands to reason that if
you believe that you are in bondage to a generational curse, then you must not be saved.

If you are not saved then you are STILL under the power of darkness and Jesus did not remove your sins and His blood has not cleansed you from sin.  Therefore, you have NOT been translated out of darkness and the spiritual weapons of Ephesians 6 will not work for you, if you are in bondage to a generational curse.

So what does the devil get out of this false teaching?  He gets those who teach it and those who believe it to lose grace and to weaken their faith.  


Consider this.  There is a difference between a curse and a plague.  By the cross, Jesus delivers us from a curse because when we become born again, old things become new and the past is washed in the precious blood of the Lamb, which includes any sins that your ancestors may have committed that could possibly affect YOU.  A curse is specific in that it
is an appeal to a supernatural power for harm to come to specific people,
places and things.  A plague is “different.”

 A plague is much more general.  It’s like a tornado.  When it hits NO ONE is spared from its effects and even the innocent who are simply in the wrong place at the time of the tornado.  The innocent get swept up with the guilty.

Jesus warned the elect of God to “come out of Her, lest ye be partakers of HER sins and receive of HER plagues.”  If He is referring to the organized church, (and I believe that He is) then the innocent will be partakers of the plagues along with the guilty.  A plague is a widespread affliction, a sudden destructive influx or an outbreak.  It can also be persistent, but it is also infectious–in the spirit, a plague can be compared to a highly infectious disease like the bubonic plague.  Those who hear the warning and continue to remain in a defiled place are subject to a plague, and the elect of God are not exempt from it.

  e-book www.lulu.com/content/10430823
                       soft cover www.lulu.com/content/7285131

In “Come Out of Her, God’s People you will find these words:

‘There are many who practice a professing Christian religion who live under a curse because they have either added to or taken away from the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I have found from our studies that demons are having a field day with professing Catholics, Mormons, (Latter Day Saints) Jehovah Witnesses, Coptics, Christian Scientists and others.  When you profess to be a Christian yet Jesus is not Lord and the Holy Spirit is not God in your so-called Christian faith, demons will use this fact against you as an occasion to rule in your life.  The demons will be successful because you are practicing a religion that has “added to or detracted” from the gospel.”

Since most of those who come to Sheppard’s Counseling Center  to be set free from demonic torment were also attending a church that could not deliver them,  I simply asked them to give me 90 days of no church attendance.  Those who can’t do so are not delivered. They are not cursed but “plagued.”

                        Let a word to the wise be sufficient.

Why You Must Leave the Church: Reason 2

Why You Must Leave the Church:  Reason 2: The Plagues

An Excerpt from “Come Out of Her, God’s People.”

My own case is a glaring illustration of a plague in operation. 

A babe in Christ in 1979 with a serious background in new age occultism, what do I find operative in my first church with my first pastor?  Charismatic witchcraft.  Quite the opposite, church should be a place where a babe in Christ can learn to walk in the spirit so as not  to fulfill the lust of his or her flesh.

 Yet, what did I find?

  Preachers operating as sexual predators.  One non-denominational preacher opened my eyes to the fact that my occult practices of necromancy, channeling, astrology and reincarnation were of the devil, yet that same man introduced me to the charismatic teachings of the non-denominational churches, which are also just another form of witchcraft. A root in dry ground, I thank God that when I walked into church doors for the first time, I had  already been saved at home two years before.

My case aside, As a pastor for 25 years,  I observed the plagues operate within the Denomination from the very beginning. In fact, I have forgotten more instances of tragedy  that befell Harriet Tubman members and even pastors than I can remember today. In most cases, the suffering seemed almost an embarrassment  for people who are supposed to have   a covenant with God.

I couldn’t understand it. 

 Most of the people  simply repeated the same ole platitudes of “who can know God?  We’ll all understand bye and bye.”

The first one who stood out for me was Brother Tommy.

Tommy belonged to the most  prominent  church family. The Thompsons were among the founding  members of Harriet Tubman.  A married man, Tommy tried to be discrete but it was well-known in the church that he constantly “played around.” However, his sins didn’t keep him out of the pulpit for his ability in congregate prayer made room for him not only in the Denomination but in several churches in the region.

Even the ministers could not compete with Tommy.  The man   fervently worked himself up— supposedly “in the Holy Ghost,”  to such an extent that  the entire   congregation went  into  a frenzy. By the time Tommy  finished the prayer,  he was soaking wet with sweat.By then, practically  the entire congregation had already   leaped up off of the pews, shouting, dancing, others falling out  in the aisles.

Even the ministers respected Tommy’s praying ability.   Everyone automatically assumed  that Tommy was  simply anointed and called by God to preach.
However, when frequently asked by others if he was going to enter the ministry,
Tommy vehemently responded in the negative.

On the day Tommy died, his girlfriend dreamt that he knocked at her door but when she went to open it, no one was  there. Others had similar dreams. It was rather eerie, to say the least. The last time I saw Tommy was in church that Sunday morning.  I was sitting in the pulpit along with the pastor of the church, and I watched Tommy nervously looking for his eyeglasses which apparently he had lost.  Around  midnight, Tommy was found crushed between two huge machines at his job while working the midnight shift.  No one found him and he died a slow and  painful death.

I remember thinking, “to lose one’s glasses is symbolic of spiritual blindness.”  Tommy’s mother was one of the old mothers, a pillar of the church, yet she too died an unseemly
death.  Old and mentally challenged, Mother Thompson went out blaspheming and cussing from her nursing home bed.

Sad to say, there were so many others who suffered strange and unusual circumstances that I  noted in my mind seemed  perplexing to be happening to God’s people.  It didn’t dawn on me then that perhaps these  were not really God’s people but that they were either worshiping the Fake Jesus by ignorance or that they were reprobate imposters, un-concerned about sin.

For instance, I can remember a time when I was drawn into the case  of a dying member with a brain tumor.   I had a dream that she would be healed and live to see the birth of  her first grandchild.  To encourage Sister Perry I told her the dream.  She smiled and looked puzzled
because all of her children, except one daughter, were homosexual.  Yet  a few days later, Sister Perry was astonished to learn that one of her gay sons had very recently  impregnated a young woman. Now confident that my dream was  from God, I went forth and laid hands on Sister Perry.

She died a few weeks later.

It was as if the devil mocked us both.  He clearly gave me the dream, a dream with a half truth.  Sister Perry DID NOT live to see the birth of her first grandchild.

I could actually write a book not only about the Denomination’s members, but I also witnessed similar cases among the Pentecostals, –mental health breakdowns,
criminal convictions, strange diseases and other unusual plagues.  Close to home, in spite of my faithfulness as a pastor, I also observed signs of the plague among members of my own congregation. For example, as much as I tried to stop it, some of my members were predators. For example, if a drug addict were to visit my church for the first time, he would not be safe from those in the congregation who tried to cover up their own problem.
