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
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 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 under 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 secured 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.
