What RESCUE Has Done For Me!

My name is Wenona and I am the editor of RESCUE Ministry newsletter for Pam Sheppard Ministries and RESCUE Online Fellowship. Before coming into RESCUE, I was an independent minister (who previously studied with T.D. Jakes’ Potter’s House School of Ministry) and blogger with my own (online) ministry. At the Lord’s leading, I closed it down and sought direction…and was led to Pamela Sheppard. What I have gained and continue to gain from my fellowship and co-ministering with RESCUE and Pamela Sheppard is fellowship, accountability, camaraderie, mentoring, wisdom, and unconditional love.

EVERY minister needs that. A safe place to land, to go where you can learn some things you THOUGHT you knew, where you can openly or discreetly share of your struggles without fear of exposure, exploitation or rejection. Pamela is unlike any leader I have ever encountered, and I have sat under the most famous of preachers, as well as the unknowns.

Pamela also SERVES the RESCUE family; there are no big ‘I’s’ or little ‘you’s’ in RESCUE. This ministry is here to RESCUE the damaged, the wounded, the broken-hearted, the abused sheep, the Remnant, from the clutches of religiosity. And last, but certainly not least, Pamela is like the older women in the Bible who teach the younger…young enough to still relate to the very real struggles of women (of ALL ages) in ministry, but yet old enough to have gained some INVALUABLE WISDOM along her own journey. That is a rare thing in THIS day and time!I get emotional when I think about it…but I consider Pamela a TRUE spiritual mother. Other ‘first ladies’ and ‘mothers of the church’ who I ran into (in the church) were always stand-offish, fake, unloving, always seeking attention and adoration like queens. NOT PAM! Pam serves. She loves. Sometimes she tells the truth…and it may hurt. But she LOVES YOU enough to TELL THE TRUTH! As a woman in ministry, RESCUE has proven to be invaluable to me. Women in ministry need SPECIAL support..and you will find that a whole lot more at RESCUE!

And for those of you who are concerned about your individual ‘ministries,’ if they will be swallowed up in RESCUE. Let me tell you this: if you believe God has called you to what you are already doing and don’t wish to abandon that, Pamela makes no demands of your ministry to come up under hers…like they do in the institutional church. She is very supportive and will continue to be supportive of you. Like I said before, RESCUE is a SUPPORTIVE ministry. I used to be a lone ranger….but I tell you. Being a lone ranger (particularly in ministry) is a dangerous, foolish thing. ESPECIALLY AS A WOMAN! We all need someone to see the blind spots for us while we travel on this journey. And sometimes our rear view mirrors are off focus a bit and foggy. Don’t do it ALONE!

The Religious Lie of Backsliding and Apostasy, Part 2

In the last post, I discussed the terms ‘backsliding’ and ‘apostasy’ as they are found in the Bible and what they mean in their proper context.

I also touched on the fact that the word ‘apostasy’ does not appear in the Bible one time, even though the concept of apostasy, or falling away, does.

I want to talk a little more on just where the word apostasy and its teaching came from.

Apostasy is defined as the formal disaffiliation from or abandonment or renunciation of a religion by a person. One who commits apostasy (or who apostatises) is known as an apostate. The term apostasy is used by sociologists to mean renunciation and criticism of, or opposition to, a person’s former religion.

It is a total desertion of or departure from one’s religion.  The Greek word for apostasy is ‘apostasia,’ which means ‘a defection, departure, revolt or rebellion.’

Apostasy was introduced by the Catholic Church after she persecuted the Early Church and martyred its leaders.  It was instituted as a means to control and regulate faithfulness and ‘faith’ to a religious organization and system.

One accused of apostasy from the catholic church was excommunicated, or kicked out of the church.  Depending upon what the defector taught, some were labeled a heretic, which could be punishable by jail time.  The worst of heretics were executed.

As time went on, apostasy and correlating punishments for apostasy were adopted by other religions, including Judaism and Islam.

Apostasy in many religions is punishable by death!

If one renunciates his or her religion, they can die.

Below are some countries and their penalty for apostasy (or backsliding) from the national religion of Islam:

  • Iran – illegal (death penalty)
  • Egypt – illegal (up to 3 years imprisonment)
  • United Arab Emirates – illegal (death penalty)
  • Somalia – illegal (death penalty)
  • Afghanistan – illegal (death penalty, although the U.S. and other coalition members have put pressure that has prevented recent executions)
  • Saudi Arabia – illegal (death penalty, although there have been no recently reported executions)
  • Sudan – illegal (death penalty, although there have only been recent reports of torture, and not of execution)
  • Qatar – illegal (death penalty)
  • Yemen – illegal (death penalty)
  • Sri Lanka – illegal (Prison sentences for 10 year) (Mahinda Rajapakse regime has passed anti religious change Act in the parliament)
  • Malaysia – illegal in five of 13 states (fine, imprisonment, and flogging)
  • Mauritania – illegal (death penalty)
  • Morocco – illegal to proselytise conversion (15 years jail, flogging)
  • Jordan – possibly illegal (fine, jail, child custody loss, marriage annulment) although officials claim otherwise, convictions are recorded for apostasy

Isn’t that amazing?  Can you imagine?

Now if we were to take the common religious definition of the Apostate Church as it is taught in most pulpits here in America on Sunday morning, then a lot of folks would have to be stoned!

A LOT of churches, no, MOST churches, keep people in religious bondage by making them believe that if the people are not faithful to a local congregation and do whatever that local pastor tells them to (even if it is in direct contradiction to the PROPER CONTEXT of scripture), then they are being unfaithful to GOD.

And because so many people believe this lie, they are afraid to confront error (even when it is blatant) and even more afraid to leave error!

We are not in Iran, or Morroco, or Jordan where people can serve time or be killed for turning their backs on a family or nation’s religion.

As a matter of fact, GOD HIMSELF commanded for HIS TRUE BELIEVERS, HIS PEOPLE, to COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE!

GOD IS CALLING FOLKS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE, EVERY DENOMINATION, EVERY RACE, EVERY CLASS, AND EVERY RELIGION TO COME OUT FROM THE ERROR OF INSTITUTIONALIZED RELIGION. 

GOD HAS A REMNANT, AND HE IS DEFINITELY SPEAKING. 

To be set free from religion that was instituted by the catholic church and that has placed so many in religious and spiritual torment and bondage to step into the light of the TRUTH, is NOT Apostasy!

It is FREEDOM!

GOD IS CALLING PEOPLE OUT OF RELIGION!  

To turn your back on an institutionalized religion that was started by the Roman Catholic church is to walk by faith into the dispensation of time God will have you to walk in…walk while there is light….

God never expected us to stay in one church age.  He always expected us to move forward to the next age!

You are NOT backslidden if you do not attend a local assembly, or don’t give tithes or dues to a fellowship.

You are NOT backslidden if you are questioning everything you ever thought what once true, holding it to the light of GOD”S HOLY WORD, asking the HOLY GHOST to reveal to you EVERY ERROR you have ever been exposed to and received.  It is called examining one’s salvation (2 Corinthians 13:5).

You are NOT backslidden if you realize that even though you spoke in tongues more than Paul, but you have come to realize that the tongues that have gone forth and are going forth today are NOT from God, so you will NOT participate in glossolalia of any kind.

You are NOT backslidden if you confront error.  It may be necessary to confront, so you can see the true colors of your leaders.  (Because I guarantee:  most leaders in the religious system will not appreciate confrontation of any kind on what they teach or preach!)

You are NOT backslidden because you wear pants, makeup or jewelry!

The only ones who SHOULD be concerned about being apostate are the ones who do not LOVE THE TRUTH!

If you are NOT a lover of truth, YOU WILL FALL AWAY!!!

IT IS YOU THE SCRIPTURES SPEAK OF IN 2 Thessalonians 2!

Don’t be placed in religious bondage to the lie of how THEY teach what it is to be backslidden, or apostate.

THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE APOSTATE!!!!!!!

The RELIGIOUS Lie of Backsliding and Apostasy, Part 1

I remember hearing of backsliding and the apostate church all of the time when I was a churchgoer.

Often, preachers would use these two terms interchangeably in hell-fire and brimstone preaching that was often used to scare people into ‘getting right’ and ‘getting saved.’

I want to make a bold statement/stand:

The popular perception that we have held of backsliding has been grossly misinterpreted and downright error has been spread as it pertains to backsliding and apostasy.

The concept of backsliding as it has been so popularly taught in the institutional church was applicable in the OLD Testament ONLY.

“Are you saying that one cannot backslide, or become apostate?”

Let’s look in the Word of God.  I did not find the word ‘apostate’ in the Word of God one time.  I did find the word ‘backsliding’ in the bible 15 times….all in the Old Testament.

The very last time I see the word ‘backsliding’ in the Word of God is in Hosea 14.  The Hebrew word used here for ‘backsliding‘ is ‘mĕshuwbah,’ which means ‘apostasy or a turning back or away.

In Hosea 14:4, God promises to heal the backslidings of Israel.

When God heals, that healing lasts.  It is done.  There is no reversal of healing…that’s when GOD HEALS!

Same applies to HIS saving power.  When GOD SAVES, IT IS FINISHED!

WHEN ONE IS TRULY SAVED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH-AND NOT THE FAKE JESUS OR EMPTY RELIGION-THEN THAT PERSON IS SAVED.

There IS no backsliding to someone who has been born again, washed in the blood of the Lamb of God!

So when we go to the New Testament to find if the word or the idea of backsliding is there, I found two instances.  One in Acts 21:21 and 2 Thessalonians 2:3.

Acts 21:21

And they are informed of thee, that thou teach all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.

In this passage of scripture, the ‘apostasy’ or falling away associated with backsliding is used by the word ‘forsake’ in this verse.  So what was being forsaken?  THAT’S the question!

What was being forsaken was the law of Moses!  The rituals of Judaism that required that parents circumcise their sons.

Now, of course, because we live in a different dispensation, one where Judaism and all of her rituals are no longer NECESSARY to be heeded because God told us to circumcise OUR hearts, not our flesh!  That circumcision does not take place except when one is submitted to the HOLY GHOST and is BORN AGAIN.

So forsaking, turning away from the religious practice of circumcision is NECESSARY so that we can embrace the concept and reality of having faith in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and in HIS Cleansing Blood to wash away our sins.

If we continue to hold on to Judaism, we make the Cross of no effect and cannot be born again!!!!!

2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

Now, let’s look at this in its proper context.  If you read the whole chapter of 2 Thessalonians 2, you will see further down that this is talking about what is going to happen when the Antichrist is manifested in the earth.  The SPIRIT of Antichrist has been setting the stage, if you will, for centuries for his appearing.  And the Word says it will happen!

How is this going to happen, or has BEEN happening???

Well, verses 9-12 says:

 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

1.  Well, first of all, signs and wonders has been worshipped so much that now most people expect to see signs and wonders or they don’t receive the Word that God gives through you.  This past century especially, with the onset of Azusa, many people have come to expect signs and wonders to always be representative of the Holy Ghost.  They have failed to realize that the enemy is the master magician.  He knows how to do signs and wonders, too.  Has been practicing it for a long, LONG time!

2.  The institutionalization of the church has made it easy for the spirit of Antichrist to control and manipulate the masses.  THIS is why he set it up in the first place!  How better to control a group of people than to get them to congregate.  Then get a whole bunch of congregations to come together in a spirit of ecumenism (the merging of all faiths, churches, fellowships, denominations, etc), even at the expense of truth, in a spirit of fake love and unity.

3.  The way all of this has been able to take place-along with all of the other maladies of the institutional church-is because people have lost a LOVE FOR THE TRUTH!  When a LOVE FOR THE TRUTH is absent, then GOD HIMSELF SENDS A STRONG DELUSION!  The Word says HE sends it so that HE makes SURE they will believe A LIE!!!!

Without a love for the truth, one CANNOT be saved!!!!

In that passage of scripture, I present to you that it is the religious BUT NOT SAVED FOLKS who this great ‘falling away’ is applied to!

Read 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 again.

The ones who are going to fall away from the faith are ones who were NEVER SAVED or LOVED THE TRUTH from the beginning!

They were religious.  They attended temple, synagogue, mass, church.  They served in ministry.  They ate with Presidents and Kings.  They performed many signs and wonders.  They had a great following.

BUT THEY WERE NOT SAVED!!!!

Otherwise, they could NOT backslide.  They could NOT turn away from the faith…that is, the faith that is in Jesus Christ of Nazareth ALONE!

For centuries, religious people have tried to make people do right, and be right and get saved by their own works.  By scaring folks into doing what’s right.

By making the masses believe that if they are faithful to a church, a denomination, a ministry, a fellowship, an organization, or a man or a woman, then that faithfulness equates salvation and faithfulness to GOD.

AND NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That whole teaching started right around the time the catholic/institutional church began.  The term ‘apostate’ never came into existence until the 2nd century, according to the Catholic Encyclopedia.

Roman Catholicism introduced the concept of apostasy!

I hope that sinks in….I got to break this up into two, maybe three parts.

I am going to tear down some strongholds and correct some very real religious errors that have kept so many in religious bondage!

Is God Telling Me To Leave?

By Pamela Sheppard

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

Whether you are ready to stop going to church or not, especially if you consider yourself “a word person,” then 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, 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, then 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.”

Putting my interpretation of who actually is “Her” of Revelation 18:4, I have also considered several other scriptures in both testaments. For example, in the old testament, whenever the Father referred to the idolatry of the children of Israel, He used symbols of gender, with Himself as masculine and His people as feminine. In fact, God command the prophet Hosea to marry an adulterous woman to stand as a metaphorical comparison of Himself and the children of Israel’s practicing the religions of heathen nations. (Hosea 1:1-3)

Similarly, Jesus is the metaphorical Bridegroom while the elect—His people—are the Bride. In both testaments, idolatry is synonymous with fornication or sex outside of marriage. When God’s people practiced a false religion, it is written that they “went a whoring.” In the new testament, the Lord chided the first church at Ephesus with a gender based reproach when He warned “you have lost your first love.” (Rev.2:4) In response to the idolatry in the church at Thyatira, the Lord declared yet another gender based statement with “I’ll cast you into a bed and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. (Rev. 2:20-22)

There are several more examples that in themselves could be the subject of a book or two, particularly “the Songs of Solomon.” In keeping with the biblical pattern, it stands to reason that in our times, the “Her” of Revelation 18:4 is an idolatrous religion practiced predominately behind church walls.

Playing the devil’s advocate with yet another question posed in an attempt to try the spirits to see if they be of God, I asked myself the following questions: : Suppose I am completely wrong and I have absolutely misinterpreted the scriptures and the “Her” in Revelation
18:4 is really NOT the organized church? To that, my response is “I will have lost nothing because I gained absolutely nothing from the church except error and deception.”

As I look back in order to present my decades of spiritual history within a well known denominational system,” chapters 2 to 6 will progressively unfold that not only did the organized church have nothing at all to do with my salvation or my spiritual edification, but in fact, the entire religious system served as an enemy to my soul. A root in dry ground, I did more than merely survive. Showered with God’s grace and mercy, I actually thrived in a dark, un-nurturing place— a spiritually dangerous, hostile spiritual environment. If God Himself had not been on my side, I am convinced that I would have withered on the vine and died—spirit, soul and body.

Am I Under A Curse? Or A Plague? Part 2

By Pamela Sheppard

You are NOT cursed…..It’s A CULTURAL PREDISPOSITION

Rather than a curse, what you may have is a cultural predisposition that includes patterns and trends, as well as a background or upbringing that you became acculturated by.

Here are some of them.

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, unforgiveness, 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.
Though last, character defects is where the bulk of the work is targeted in the therapeutic model I have developed called “deliverance counseling.”  A major counseling goal is to help you to recognize hidden battlegrounds in your own life so that you can find victory in the blood of Jesus.

I’ll restate the truth. 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.

Am I Under A Curse? Or A Plague? Part 1

By Pamela Sheppard

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 well. “We have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but 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 anxiery 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.

Recently, with the death of the man of God, David Wilkerson, some deliverance workers posted on facebook that Wilkerson died  because he was subject to a curse, put on him by witches as retaliation for his exposing witches and witchcraft in the house of God. These workers claimed that they were going to interrogate demons, uncover who was responsible and return curses.

According to the scriptures, if they are correct, then David Wilkerson was not a child of God. If a man who constantly preached the cross was subject to a curse, therefore, he was not under the protection of the cross and the enemy was able to not only touch Wilkerson, but kill him outright. I know that David Wilkerson was a true and faithful prophet of God so no witches or demons were capable of putting a curse on him.

So what happens in instances like these?

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. Its 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.

Since most of those who come to me 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 remain not cursed but “plagued.”

Let a word to the wise be sufficient.

Is The Church An Evil Tree? (An Online Deliverance Ministry)

By Pamela Sheppard

 

Daily I am being put into contact with many longterm, faithful churchgoers who are practically demon possessed.  Jesus said that to look at the fruit, one must examine the tree. If the tree is good, then the fruit is good. If the fruit is evil, then the tree must be evil. So based on this simple premise of “you shall know them by their fruit”, why then are faithful churchgoers in so much demonic torment?

Good question!!!!

One thing I have learned through the practice of deliverance, the casting out of devils, is that I really don’t help anyone. I have never helped anyone!!!! It is always the Lord who does the work.Whether I lay hands or not, I am never actually DOING the work.

It is CHRIST JESUS WHO DOES THE DELIVERING!

Furthermore, I have found from my own personal experience as a good, sincere pastor in the organized church for over 25 years, that those who had been faithful members, followers of my ministry bore significantly less fruit than those that I counseled as a professional, Christian therapist on a weekly basis. So I had to ask myself one simple question.

Why IS that? Someone can come into telephone counseling with me for 6 months to a year and bare ten times more spiritual fruit than some who had faithfully attended my “church” for 5 years, 10 years and 15 years.

It should also be pointed out there are people in my camp that have heard countless sermons and teachings. I had known them personally and been an active figure in their lives, yet spiritual fruit in Christ was barely visible. I believe the Holy Spirit began to show me WHY churchgoers were more demonized than non-churchgoers.

The passive model of church, where the pastor gets up on a platform, gives “a word” after the choir sings, DOES NOT BARE FRUIT.

To bare real fruit for Christ, each sheep must be individually fed through counsel, guidance, up front and in your face ministry at least one hour a week, one on one. As the babe grows, the contact can be reduced after a year or so. Once the babe is a mature Christian, then he or she can “feed his or her self and then become a worker to feed new babes.

Take a case in point:  A young woman came to Jesus by way of a Mormon outreach and the Blue Book, as she watched Christian television. She truly was convinced that she was saved by repeating a sinner’s prayer, yet almost immediately, demons began to imitate the Holy Ghost. This client was sent by a supernatural experience to the ministry of a mega preacher whose name I cannot mention to protect the client’s confidentiality. She gave up fornication, and became a very faithful church member, Yet as time when on, the demons became more active. So she sat in church, sought counsel from her pastor, who referred her to another pastor. Ultimately, this client found me through the Internet.

The Lord sent her to me primarily to expose the problem. The Holy Spirit revealed to me that if I don’t speak to that demon, it will NOT come out. I have spoken to it and it has laughed and giggled back at me. But I am convinced that it WILL come out once I discover what ground it is standing on. Even so, my client is truly blessed because I have done the most difficult task of all.

 

Try to imagine how hard it is for someone who looks saved, acts saved, sounds saved, goes to bible study not once but twice a week and twice on Sunday, does not drink, fornicate, and tithes too?!!!! How hard it is for a pastor who is over at least 100 folks, to personally minister to, disciple and (if necessary) deliver such a one???  A good, upstanding, moral member of the church who may not even KNOW they are in need of deliverance?  Of salvation?  Of discipling or enlightenment?

Beloved web visitors, that is practically impossible.

On top of that, she is in the ministry of a mega preacher and his son, no less!!!!! I have been looked down upon by clients who merely study the works of mega preachers, much less who are in their company on a regular basis. Yet, I have been able to prove and convince this client that she could not possibly be saved. If I don’t do anything else, I have done my job. This particular client did not understand either repentance or resurrection, and so it was very obvious to me from the beginning, in spite of all of her good works, that she was not saved.

In truth, I have accomplished a major task with this young woman. For several others have hung up the phone on me with a curt “how dare you question my salvation?”

If it were not for the torment and the fact that this young woman is hungry for the truth, she would be just another statistic of a person who “missed it” for reasons that are not of her own doing. (I bolded the “and” because even some professing Christians who are seriously demon oppressed have refused my counsel, blind and foolish are they.)

Where I really throw my hands up in the air is not over this one person.

It is over the countless millions who are in the same boat as this young woman, either sitting in a church somewhere, or God help them, learning on their own from Christian television (or nowadays, checking out various ministries on social networks, YouTube and BlogTalkRadio).

For example, droves of people are responding to the call in various mega churches and taken into another room to receive the gift of tongues. The issue here is not that mega preachers don’t preach Christ. They do!!!!

Nevertheless, I learned something from my small caseload that I did not realize before. I did not think that the devil would use the word to birth disciples into his own kingdom.

Well, he DOES!!!! In practically ALL of my cases of demonic torment, a common factor is that 95 percent of them were not demon possessed BEFORE THEY WENT TO CHURCH!!!!

It is one thing to come to the Lord and miss it.  It is yet another to listen to someone who claims to know Christ preach and then pick up a powerful religious demon that is difficult to get rid of. I know what needs to be done for my clients.

They need to go back to ground zero and be convicted of sin through the spirit of repentance. They need to be brought back to the cross. They clearly do not understand resurrection nor repentance. My job is to rightly divided the word to them on both of those subjects.

Whether the Lord delivers them of the religious demon first and then immediately saves them or the reverse, is clearly up to Him.

My job now is prayer for mercy, since many of my clients are not at fault here.

IT IS THE FAULT OF THE ORGANIZED CHURCH!!!!!

The church models that are out there are, for the most part, NOT WORKING, in spite of the billions of dollars that are being spent on “preaching a gospel” which apparently is not THE gospel.

From my personal background and experience, I could clearly see that the denominations were not working and I have grown to a place where I know that unless there is widescale repentance within the denominational church, they are coming DOWN!!!

I also have known for a while now that the devil was using the non-denominationals and the Christian cults like the Mormons, but I certainly did not fathom the extent of the problem. Whether it be denominations, non-denominations, Christian television or radio, I finally came to terms with the fact that those who have done the right things but who has gotten the wrong results that NONE OF IT IS WORKING!!!!!

Several of my clients have done wrong things— sins of all kinds, witchcraft, incest, you name it but some of my clients have done no wrong. They have lived lives that Christians who are not being tormented by demons should emulate. It is sad to say but there are countless faithful church goers who have been out and out deceived by religion and religious people. I can find no excuse to place the blame on the deceived.

Today, people are being saved and delivered, one at a time over the telephone.

I am available 7 days a week, 4 hours a day. But I am only one person. I can only handle 20 clients a week. I am getting closer to the end of my life. I can only make a very small impact. Even if I was a mega preacher, I would not be able to do more than any of the rest of them are doing. They are not really the root of the problem. It is the model that we have ALL been using—bringing huge crowds as well as small groups into small and big barns, without repentance, on a “believe and receive” gospel.

Let’s face it and be real here. As a denominational pastor for years, I myself could do absolutely nothing. Yet today, the tide is turning, the Holy Spirit is moving and people are being saved and delivered. My job is very simple. I preach the gospel of repentance and the bodily resurrection of the Lord and the Holy Spirit is moving on hardened hearts to lead people to repent, giving them the faith to believe on Jesus. I am casting out demons—on the telephone, no less–from those who will humble themselves to receive it.

This one referenced case has taught me that since the organized church is not working, radio and tv is not working, it would be useless for me to reinvent the wheel cause it wouldn’t work with me either. It hasn’t and it won’t. I don’t know any other models other than working with people one on one. I have been out on the street in street ministry. That DOES work if the basic gospel is being preached and it is not aimed toward bringing people into a church that is going to confuse them.

What I am expecting is that the Lord is going to do a mass thing, around the world, similar to what He did to me and for me. I was an atheist and I was not seeking Him. He came after me in a dream and brought me to the cross without the benefit of man. I was sent to church, not to be nurtured, but that I would understand and perceive the problem and learn what NOT to do about 25 years later. More than two decades of “Church” has not done much for me.  I remained a root in dry ground. I got a hunger for the word from Kenneth Copeland and others and Joyce Meyer provided some good, solid teaching.

But for the most part, I was attracted to Copeland and the rest of them because they were “supernatural” and my background was in witchcraft. The two were almost an extension of each other and so I found word of faith to be “comfortable”—in other words, charismatic witchcraft. The denominations harmed me in the beginning because they were loose on sin and so until I got grounded on my own and took dominion over my own sin, I fell to carnal ministers. But once I had sexual sin under control, the denominations did not really harm me. They may have hurt my feelings and injured my pride, but they didn’t harm me. They couldn’t harm me because I was saved BEFORE I arrived. Just as the denomination I was in didn’t know the truth, I didn’t know the truth either.

The major point I am making is that the church as it is now operating today is “doing harm” to people who are serious about finding Jesus.

And I shudder at the thought.

I KNOW the problem.

The problem is 200 years old, starting with evangelist like Charles Finney and others. I thought I KNEW the organizational solution. Once, I thought that the answer was in home fellowships, in spite of the many problems that can affect that also.

You see, I really didn’t realize just how much the devil has penetrated the church.

I, too, had been contaminated by the beliefs, traditions and practices of both the denominational and the nondenominational Protestant church. It seemed that every week after I left the institutional church, the Lord brought to my attention some practice or some area of biblical “mis-” interpretation that I need to be cleansed from.

And He has been faithful to do just that!

If you would like to be cleansed, too, give me a call at 518-477-5759.

THE DEMONIC TAKEOVER of the ‘Church!’ (An Online Deliverance Ministry)

Even though popular teachers such as Creflo Dollar teach that you can put a Facebook curse on yourself for pointing out truths regarding the ills of the church,  we as believers must not be afraid to challenge any and all error taught within the institution of church.

How can such a thing be possible?  A demonic takeover of the church?  

Didn’t Jesus say upon this rock He will build HIS church?  And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it?

So if the Church-the Ekklesia- of the Lord Jesus Christ is built upon THE ROCK, then the gates of hell cannot prevail, right?

So the converse is true: the only way a demonic takeover has, in fact, occurred in the organized church system is because GOD IS NOT THERE.

Now before you heed to Creflo Dollar’s advice of a ‘Facebook curse,’ here me out!

In a battle/war, when a region is taken over, it is only after the powers that be have been run out of that region.  The powers that were set to protect said region from enemy encroachment is no longer present.  

THIS leaves the region open and vulnerable to enemy takeover.

THIS is what has happened to the organized church system.  

When Ichabod was written across the doorposts of the temple in Samuel’s early days, we have to understand that the glory of God NEVER returned there…to the temple.  The glory of God became ‘mobile,’ so to speak.  

God never again allowed Himself to be boxed in to one gathering, or a building.  

And man has been trying to erect buildings ever since to glorify God to invoke the glory to ‘return’ to the buildings.  

Now understand.  There are different TYPES of glory.  

Haggai 2 mentions a former glory, and a latter glory.

1 Corinthians 15 mentions terrestial glory, or glory that is of the earth and celestial glory, glory that is heavenly.  It also mentions the glory of the sun, moon and the stars.

1 Corinthians 11 speaks of the glory of a woman’s hair.  

So there are different types of glory.  

And undoubtedly, these different types of glory has visited the buildings.  

And what has invariably happened is that the organized church system attempts to camp out at one or more manifestations of glory (never questioning the origin of the ‘glory).  

When GOD said that HIS Glory, HIS splendor, HIS majesty, HIS excellence….has LEFT THE BUILDING.

And when GOD says a thing, IT IS SO!

The organized church system was set up as the modern day Babels.  Man’s attempt to get the Glory of GOD to return to man.  When GOD has a set plan and vehicle in place to manifest HIS GLORY in the earth.

It is through A PEOPLE.  HIS BRIDE.  A PEOPLE HE HAS RESERVED and SAVED FOR HIMSELF.

THEY HAVE and ARE coming out of the organized church system.  

THEY HEAR HIS VOICE, SAYING COME OUT FROM AMONG HER AND BE SEPARATE!

AND THEY ARE NOT TURNING BACK!

Read this account of Pamela Sheppard, a former pastor who heard God’s voice to ‘COME OUT!’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Growing up as a child in Harlem, the Lord protected me from the black church and from religion.

Now that I have entered into deliverance counseling with tormented Christian clients, I understand why.

Religiosity and the present day church has become seized demonic territory.

How can I say that?  Let me share:

I did not enter the religious system called church until I was already 2 years saved and 35 years old. It was a strange, uncomfortable world for me where I had to learn to “swim with the sharks.” I studied the songs, the mannerisms, all of the accoutrements of
“churchism.” Yet, I never really belonged because I had no church history to stand on among people who could claim several generations of a relationship with Her.

So even though I entered ministry in 1981, I remained a root in dry ground for the next 25 years, an unwanted stepchild.  When the Lord called me out in Sept. 2003, He didn’t tell me EVERYTHING. He simply warned, “Pam, you are a candle, hidden under a bed in this place. If you stay here, I cant use you. But don’t leave on your own. Let them PUT you out!”

I had no idea what He was talking about as I had been a preacher in good standing for 24 years then and all was at peace. However, it didn’t take long. An unexpected enemy surface whom the Lord used to cause the leadership to remove my name from their
rolls. The day before, I saw in a dream that like John the Baptist, I was being spiritually beheaded. The deed was done on June 25th, 2004 and I was pushed outside of the camp, waiting for the Lord to send me to another church within another denomination or
sect.

I waited for two years and on the third year, the Lord spoke. I was setting up a road trip to several churches to train their leaders on deliverance when I was asked a question. “Pam, would you put curtains up at the windows of a condemned building?” Raised in a ghetto surrounded by boarded up buildings was quite a vivid image. I immediately answered, “No!”

Then the voice said, “Well, training church leaders according to your plan is like putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building.” Needless to say, I cancelled the trip. Simply put, I was told that the church was already judged but I refused to believe
it. So I went on a search that evolved into a study of church history. I figured if the church was already judged, history would reveal it.
And it did.

What I uncovered became the book entitled “the FAKE JESUS: Fallen Angels Among Us.”

THE FAKE JESUS:Fallen Angels Among Us

The book provides details on how religious demons under the command of a fallen angel who calls himself ascended master, Jesus Sananda Immanuel, became the god of the organized church. In this teaching, I summarize the most outstanding signs to suggest that
the Holy Ghost is no longer in the organized church.

You will not see the immediate truth of what I warn you about until you have your own revelation from the Lord. The Holy Ghost may use something that I write on this subject to motivate a decision that you may have already been contemplating. Nevertheless, no one can lead you out of the visible, organized church but the Holy Ghost.  The most dangerous churches are those where the people are supportive and dedicated to good works. It is hard to leave smiling faces who provide good music and helpful projects and programs.

After 25 years, I was led out. In fact, I literally had to be THROWN out when MY time came because “church” had become
“comfortable.” The Bishop and other church officers had to mess with my comfort zone for me to leave. Then again, “I had a dream.” It was plain and it was clear. The Lord said, “Pam, if you don’t come out, you will be like a candle, hidden undeer a bed. I will not
be able to use you.” Perhaps that will be the case for you. Perhaps God will set you up to be thrown out. But if you are among
the elect, you will either walk out yourself, or the Lord will allow the devil to use fake Christians led by demons within the visible church to PUSH you out.

But out you MUST come in order to survive and escape the plagues that are coming upon those who still remain “in the house!!!” I warn “the lukewarm” to take heed to the words of Paul to Timothy and the words of Jesus to the church at Laodicea. Don’t get
me wrong about this. So what is the bottom line to Satan’s not so tender trap? How was the devil able to get into the church,
and not only secure a seat in the back row, but actually make his way to the pulpit? Well, through a gradual infiltration that has taken a century or two, Satan finally has his pulpit position. You see, the gateway for the religious demon is “by invitation.”

Invitations can be either formal or informal. Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness..When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. When sermons are preached by wrenching scriptures out of their context for the purpose of making three points that have nothing to do with  repentance, rebirth or the resurrection, an invitation is made to the religious demon. When salvation is taken out of the sovereign
calling and election of God and put into the hands of man to “make a decision for Christ” then Satan moved from the backseat into the pulpit. When unsaved people came to church altars “chanting” as they sought to speak in tongues, they invited demons to enter them and countless of these folk are now tormented, almost fully demonized.

As would be expected, the sheep followed the preaching of a distorted gospel, looking for blessings, success, and prosperity to come in the abundant life they are taught that Jesus promised them. They have been seduced into believing that “they have a right to
the good life” and all that prosperity entails. Rarely do preachers even mention that serving Jesus Christ can also bring trial, tribulation, trouble and in some cases, even death. Consequently, Satan’s seat has been securred by the gradual elimination of the cross from the gospel preached in most pulpits.

Can Satan be unseated by the organized church? How can he be? Though short lived, the bible tells us that Satan will have his day, when he officially takes his seat in the endtime synagogue, today called “THE CHURCH!” The organized church is fastly ringing true
to her final name, Mystery Babylon. Furthermore, the time for repentance may already be OVER, because judgement of the household of faith has already occurred. The remnant within the church shall prevail along with the rest of the 144,000 righteous
remnant. Whether an actual or a literal number, the truth is this. The way to the True Jesus is narrow and straight and the very few are those who enter in and find the real Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the only begotten Son of the Father.

Tell Me: HOW Do I Move Forward????? (An Online Deliverance Ministry)

Our love affair with our past-especially in the organized church system-can be a hard one to break off.

You know the ins and outs of our relationship with religion:  all the turmoil and transition of “Should I go?  Should I stay?”

The familiarity and security of it all.  Even if its a false sense of security.

I mean “Whatever” will we do if we didn’t go to church?”

“Its my assignment to go back and save the lost in the church…”

“I miss the fellowship.  The service.  The music….”

Some people love the drama that is latent within the institution of the church.  They have gotten so used to their perception of ‘warfare.’

The religious demon has deceived them for so long, that they really think they are winning a ‘battle’ for right within an institution that God has left for centuries.

It is a subtle trick of the enemy to get people distracted.  Weighed down.

It is the intent of the enemy to get folks so used to fighting a losing battle-ON HIS TURF-so when the real battle ensues, they have no more strength to endure.

And the Word says they that endure TIL the END shall be saved!

Those who continue to stay within an institution void of GOD are in rebellion TO GOD.

And God cannot and will not afford you the victory in your disobedience, deception and rebellion.

He loves you.  He takes care of you.  He is merciful.  BUT…

You would have endured many a battle scar(s) that HE never intended for you to bear.

TRUST ME…I KNOW!

I used to be that warrior…in the church.  Fighting for what was right…all in the name of the Lord.

Fighting …. getting hit with blow…after blow…. after blow.

Let me tell you something.

I have been saved for many years.  And I hate to admit it…but most of those years, I was defeated.  Why?

Because I could not recognize that the Spirit of the Living God had left the church buildings years before I was ever even born!

Yet we are conditioned as a people to ‘go to church,’ especially in hard times.

God wants us THE REMNANT to MOVE FORWARD.  Not looking back to whatever error we were taught in church.

He wants us to LAY ASIDE THE WEIGHT THAT SO EASILY BESETS US….and He wants us to run this race.

And we cannot run towards the finish line….LOOKING BACK.  Pointing at those on the sidelines, selling bootleg CDs and DVDs at the race.  Or bootleg race t-shirts!

A runner knows, they gotta keep looking ahead.  They may have almost tripped on that pothole in the road, but they didnt.

They gotta keep running.

And you cant run with weights on you.  With error on you.  With false doctrine and strongholds on you.

LAY IT ASIDE!!!!!!!

Need help on HOW to MOVE FORWARD?????

Are You REALLY Moving Forward?

Holding on to tightly to the past can be a dangerous thing.  Especially when the Spirit of the Living God is trying to move you forward!

I speak especially to those people who have ‘left the church,’ per se.  But the church has NOT left you.

Oh, you do well, you write well, you blog superbly of how you have left the institutional church. But you speak of Her more like a spurned lover than you do of a healed, delivered WARRIOR.

I used to be that way.  I spoke of my past and wore it like a tattered garment.  A LOT!

But I stopped doing that when I got DELIVERED!  FOR REAL!

You see, what you have to realize is that the Word says to FORGET THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE BEHIND AND P R E S S!

No, you wont forget the stuff literally.  You WILL forget how much it hurt you.  Or angered you.  Or disappointed you.  Or frustrated you.

How can you tell you are still wearing the garment of religiosity, even though you left ‘the church’ 10 years ago?

Classic tell tale signs are:

1) Anger, frustration, depression, remorse or guilt that won’t go anywhere when you hear of something else going on in the church.

You will understand that the closer we get to the end times, the worse this institutional church is going to get.  You are prepared for that.  You accept it.  So when you hear of another scandal, another child being raped, another devout woman contracting HIV from a preacher, you will know that all of these things are plagues of the end time institutional church.

2) A strong desire to return.

If you find yourself missing ANY aspect of the institutional church (i.e. the service, the praise and worship, the covering, etc.) , there is still some religion left in you.  You just got to find a reason to go there.  That religious demon still has its hooks in you.  That’s not a condemnatory statement; it is the truth, in love. I  love enough to tell you the truth…that ultimately SETS YOU FREE!

3) All of your time and resources are spent exposing things going on in the institutional church.

Now, I am a proponent of exposure.  And I wholeheartedly do believe that things not of God should be exposed.  But ALL of my time, resources and energy are no longer spent on exposing the fakes.  I mean, come on!  If I spent all that time exposing the fakes, I would have no time to do what it is I am CALLED to do….point people to the REAL JESUS, help people recognize the voice of God for themselves and help them in their transition OUT of the church, when they are ready.

4)  Pride/Inability and Unwillingness to be Taught

Religion and pride goes hand in hand.  People with this trait use the excuse that because ministers and leaders in the institutional  church have abused their authority, consequently that in and of itself is supposed to eradicate the necessity to be taught by another.  A trick of the enemy is to get folks to get huffy and puffy and refuse to be taught based upon the fact that there are false teachers out here.  Remember, there would NEVER be a fake unless there is a REAL.   A fake anything is only a cheap replica of the real!  Without the real, the fake could NOT exist.  Your job is to discern that which is fake and that which is real!

5)  You rehearse trauma, abuse and mishaps suffered in the church….over and over again.

And you do so with a victim’s mentality.  You are not a victor, but a victim.  And God cannot use a victim.

6) You are sort of the Rhona Barrett, the Wendy Williams, of the church.  You may or may not go to church, but you sure got all the news about whats going down there.  You are obsessed with reporting the latest on what’s going down in ‘the church.’  

Instead of focusing your energies on helping the REAL people of God heal from abuses suffered in the church, you are still moaning, crying, reporting, complaining, and getting frustrated  over what is happening there.  You left, like Pam said in the video, but its really like you never left to begin with!

You have left the church, but the church has NOT left YOU!!!!!!

7) You have this hero mentality.  You believe that God has ‘called’ you to rescue folks out of the clutches of the I.C.

This is one of the last things the enemy will deceive folks who have come out with…that it is your job, your calling, to snatch folks out of the I.C.  The enemy has you deluded with grandiose perceptions of yourself being a savior of some sort.  Super Christian!  With the big ‘S’ on your chest!  You can leap skycrapers in a single bound…and snatch innocent people out of the clutches of the satanically-driven I.C.

And you are SO deceived with this perception of yourself that you will even DISOBEY GOD and go back to church, under the guise of rescuing souls out of religion!  Or out of a plague-ridden church.

THAT is a trap of the enemy.

I remember this movie, one of my favorite, Superman II, where Superman was in this fight with some villains from his old planet Krypton before it was destroyed.  There were three of them, two men and a woman.  One of the men was called Zod, he was the leader.  In this fight scene, Superman was going toe to toe with all three of the villains in the city of Metropolis.

The villains were winning the fight, per se, because Superman was on the WRONG turf.

Superman wisened up and took the fight to HIS turf, his pad in the North Pole.  THERE Superman whipped some villain booty!!

Superman realized what a lot of ‘christians’ have not: you cannot go into a den of demons, somewhere where GOD IS NOT and expect to win ANY confrontation with evil.

The VICTORY IS IN JESUS CHRIST.  And if JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH is NOT with you, then the fight won’t be won.

You cannot go into a corrupt, condemned, plagued, sin ridden entity that GOD HIMSELF HAS JUDGED AND GIVEN OVER TO THE ENEMY and expect to do any real damage to the kingdom of darkness.

That luring that you feel to go back and ‘fight’ for souls is a T.R.A.P. set up by the enemy for your destruction!

You no longer walk in the power of God when you are in rebellion, or disobedience.  You may feel ‘a power’ with you while you are in there.  But it is NOT the HOLY GHOST POWER.

It is a false, demonic, wicked, religious demon that empowers those who follow it…straight to their demise.

If this is you, don’t feel bad.  I was once there.  But I thank GOD for deliverance, and for bringing people like Pamela Sheppard into my life to help me!

If you are looking for help/deliverance, just call 518-477-5759.
