Thirty eight years of Pastor Pam Sheppard’s life have been filled with signs to “wonder” about, several of them occurring in her dreams. Before Pastor Pam was saved, she was demonized by a spirit of divination. She used to dream as many as 10 dreams a night, remembering MOST of them. Several dreams contained predictions that actually came to pass. When Pam went into ministry in 1981, she had a loose-leaf “dream book” where she had journaled about 3,000 dreams. Pastor Pam never forget the day that the Lord asked her to throw out the dream journal. In her book “Come Out of Her God’s People, Pam proclaims:
“I was fit to be tied!”. I complained, “Lord, I have been maintaining this journal for years because I plan to write a book about dreams.” He responded: “Pam, you have some dreams that I sent to you in your journal, but most of your dreams are from the devil. Throw it away. I’ll give you other books to write.” I reluctantly put the dream book in an outside garbage and went back 3 times to retrieve it, asking myself “was that REALLY God?” Finally, I let the garbage truck take it. Thank God, I finally obeyed.’
In 1985, Pastor Pam had a supernatural sign—a dream where a 7 foot,bald-headed, muscular being loudly and boldly declared, “I am an angel sent from God to show you your future ministry.”This “angel” showed her a huge residential Christian rehabilitation center for ex-offenders and recovering addicts. In the center of it was a huge chapel. The rehab center was so large that she couldn’t figure out if it was one piece of land with several cottages and buildings on its grounds, or if the blueprint consisted of several individual sites around the country.Since her secular background includes writing proposals and obtaining large government grants in human services, she asked the angel, ” Do I write a grant?” The “angel” bellowed loudly,”NOOOO!!!! This is God’s project and He shall fund it.”
Very religious, pious sounding, right? Well, it took Pastor Pam 20 years to find out that this being was a demon sent by the fake Jesus to derail her and “set her up.”. The religious demon even poured into her the desire and the zeal to do prison ministry work—a desire that she took for granted came from God. As one example out of many, I read in the book that Pastor Pam had a supernatural experience in the parking lot of a prison, with travail and groanings that knocked her to the ground. Periodically over the years, she spent hours on my face, weeping and travailing for the salvation of prisoners. Accompanied by her daughter Zee, Pastor Pam actually preached and taught in prison every week for 8 years. Nevertheless, once the spotlight of truth hit her in the face, –that she was NOT called by God to a prison/substance abuse ministry,—- the wisdom received was not at all painful. Pastor Pam just said to myself “oh well.. I’m in the Lord’s hands. He will guide my next steps.”
Instantly Pastor Pam understood how and why a religious demon had been successful at deceiving her on this and other significant issues for so long. Simply put, the Lord knew that the deception would be good for her since she has been in training for this hour for more than 35 years. One of many truths that I learned from the book is that the best way to learn Satan’s strategies is to be deceived,and then to watch the Holy Ghost unveil and expose the deception. In other words, it was necessary for Pastor Pam to go down the trail of deception herself, so that she could yell back to those behind her, ” Hey, you guys, go back!!! You don’t need to follow this path, I’ve seen what is ahead so turn around and start again.”
I can relate. When the Lord called me out of a charismatic church, literally, all hell broke loose on me. I don’t blame the people the enemy sent into my life to derail me. They had no idea what was going on. They were just pawns in a demonic chess game invisibly and secretly played out with my spiritual life as the chessboard. Pastor Pam reveals in her amazing memoires that she took full responsibility for being duped by the fake Jesus because clearly, the Lord never assigned her to work in a substance abuse prison ministry.The problem was that SHE DID NOT TRY THE SPIRITS TO SEE IF THEY WERE OF GOD, assuming this huge angel was who he said he was.. Also, due to her impatience to “get things rolling” in what she believed to be the Lord’s work, she actually put herself into the devil’s hands because it suited her own purposes to believe a lie.
What stands out in the book is that while Pastor Pam STRONGLY DESIRED THE WORK TO BEGIN, SHE DID NOT REALIZE THAT SHE WAS BEING REFINED AND CLEANSED THROUGH WHAT I ENDURED AND SUFFERED. I think we all can relate. It takes great faith and patience to wait on the Lord.
One day Pastor Pam looked up and the zeal for prison ministry and substance abuse counseling was completely gone from her spirit. Vanished. With the zeal gone, she immediately withdrew from prison ministry. Shortly thereafter, her spiritual eyes were opened to the whole truth. She had been hooked by an intricate, demonic setup. This truth has set her free to complete what God has REALLY chosen her to do.
So what is Pastor Pam’s divine assignment? To train ministers for the return of the Lord. I know from personal experience because I am one of the ministers she has trained for the last 3 years. First she cast a demon of depression from me and then she began to train me for ministry in this unique season.
So what I learned from “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” is this. If you have been given a specific blueprint about your spiritual journey in the Lord–if you have been shown signs of who you will marry and such, if your plan has lots of details with confirming signs, you’d better stop, look, listen and STAND STILL.
Its the devil!
I have only shared my understanding concerning one spiritual truth. There are many more in “Come Out of Her God’s People: Don’t Receive Her Plagues.”
We do not have much time left to prepare for what is about to unfold!
