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.

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.

TO FACEBOOK TEACHERS: God Resists the Proud

GOD RESISTS THE PROUD
 
The devil’s deception was broken in my life because I am quick to admit to error and I am not a people pleaser.

Facebook is a place where everyone wants to teach and be heard and few want their followers to know that they don’t know very much.   Rebellion and belligerance is very apparent in their various posts which portrays a rebellious  spirit. Since rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, many Facebook teachers are in the hands of the enemy and God has turned some of  them over to strong delusion.

There are some teachers on fb that have actually put people in bondage with their teachings.  I won’t call any names but the truth is that their pride keeps them from being teachable. The enemy loves pride because deception is made easy when we think more highly of ourselves then we ought to think. I am not an advocate of the world’s self-esteem teaching that has been adopted by the religious world.  Self esteem as defined by the world is when the world has high regards for you.  You are accepted, found to be worthy and considered competent. In other words, worldly self-esteem is rooted in what others think of you. And for this reason, those who seek worldly favor will compromise to obtain and sustain the world’s approval.  Christians of this persuasion find that they are always trying to fit in and in so doing, they disobey the Lord’s will to please others.

I have purposed and established in my heart that my self esteem is found in Jesus Christ.  The Lord is the only one I need to please because I love truth. When the motives of the heart are not pure, truth will be hidden.  To be pure is to be clear, articulate, unclouded understanding.  Not confused, covered up or clandestine. When something is not pure, it is defiled.  To defile is to contaminate or to pollute.  When the heart is not pure, then Satan’s job is easy because defilement has come from within US, usually because of pride. For pride begins with what we say in our hearts and what we believe in our minds. Jesus linked pride to adulteries, fornication, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy and foolishness. (Mark 7:20-22) A proud mind is not pure because it thinks, feels and behaves in ways that suggest that we think too highly of ourselves.

Pride, self esteem and vanity deny and conceal the truth. These 3 traits will pull you away from the Lord’s will by quenching and grieving the Holy Spirit and your spirit will become blocked from God’s revelation about what is to come.  Pride is also PHONY. Nothing real about it because it puts forth a facade or an act. Pride will cause you to deny your feelings, and pretend so much that you even fool yourself.  But the devil is not fooled. He knows when you are “fronted” before him in your effort to appear to be in control, putting forth that lie when you routinely boast that you are blessed by God. As you over compensate, pride will prevent you from admitting that you need help and therefore the enemy can use your pride to block you from crucial resources.

The proud religious person must ALWAYS appear to be knowledgeable and therefore he or she will never admit to not knowing or understanding a verse of scripture, because they are concerned that others will think them stupid and so they will even lie to cover up their ignorance or their weakness as they  hide the truth to protect their religious image. Such people are already in the hands of  a religious demon. Pride goeth before a fall!

A proud person is not wise either. They make stupid, even costly mistakes. As vanity is excessive pride, a vain person’s conceit will bring sure destruction for self-deception is an open doorway to failure.  Proud people :

  • are outraged when others they that they are superior to them
  • are defensive, always justifying themselves
  • are critical in their efforts to tear down others to build themselves up
  • will hunger for prestige by seeking praise and approval from others
  • adopt the ways of those they are trying to please.
  • make EVERYTHING personal.
  • will live in the past and hunger for “the good old days.”

To the proud I  declare that the world did not create you. The world did not redeem you. When you justify yourself before men, you establish them as your lord with authority and you enable the enemy to deceive you. Remember. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

If you are too proud to admit that you have been worshipping the fake Jesus, you are trapped in a pit of religion.  There is help available.  Come join our Facebook group. Either comment in this post or send a message to www.facebook.com/pamela.sheppard.911

How To Help Yourself In Deliverance

HOW TO HELP YOURSELF IN DELIVERANCE

Here are some practical ways to start the process of ridding yourself of demonic captivity by casting down imaginations and every high thing that would exalt itself above the knowledge of Christ and bringing every thought into obedience to Him:

    • Your Attitude Toward the Past: You should have no regrets or brooding over things done and undone.  To avoid an evil kind of thinking that leads to brooding, you must learn to discern for yourself if you are simply “thinking” or if you are being drawn into a state of regretting or brooding by the demon that is assigned to YOU. If you are to overcome, you need to know that success at   being set free requires victory over the past, in spite of all your failures that the enemy helps you to list and record in your mind.  Your failures should be dealt with on the basis of I John 1:9.
    • Your Attitude Toward the Future: You must concentrate on the Lord’s own words by “taking no thought for tomorrow.”  Not that you should not think about or even make future plans, but you should be careful not to fall victim to trying to make up in the future for sins of the past that already have been forgiven by God.  Once a sin has been repented of, cleansing will occur when you can forget what is behind and press toward the future that is God’s plan for the rest of your life.
    • Your Attitude Toward Devils and Demons: You should be trained to discern your own thoughts from those implanted into your mind by spirit entities.  You should realize that only the Lord knows your heart and that demons cannot read your mind.  Demons know only the thoughts that THEY have successfully planted into your mind–thoughts that you have received as your own because of the nature of your deception.  Remember this.  “He that doeth the truth, cometh to the light.”  (John 3:21)
    • Your Attitude Toward the Present Moment: Doubt can be a good thing, particularly when those fictitious foundations upon which you have built up your pride system become shaky.  Doubt of this kind can lead to sincere humility.  God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.  Against the enemy, your best weapon is God’s grace.  Your worst mistake in judgment is your assumption that because you profess to be a Christian, that God will protect you from being deceived.  Not so.  It is God Himself who has released strong delusion in our times.  So deception is a matter of course.  God has given us the weapons and the tools to be un-deceived.  Your best weapon is to look around you, and allow your doubt to assist you to question EVERYTHING!
Sheppard’s Counseling Center sets captives free!

Prison bars and walls in the spirit are a lot stronger and several times more sophisticated than they were in the days of Paul and Silas.  In this present complicated age of the 21st century, what we do at Sheppard Counseling Center is investigate, observe and interpret our findings.  The purpose of investigation is to unravel confusion and to unfold the mystery by searching for repetitive themes.  Through concentrated and intelligent inquiry, we gather the clues as to the hidden reason behind your captivity. Demons do their damage by invitation.  We need to find out how you made the invitation to them, and what you must do to rescind it. We also use our knowledge of personality disorders to ascertain the various strategies that your particular personality type will employ to resist your own freedom. We do not waste time on people who use all of their energies to hide crucial things from us or those who become hostile because they are threatened by any real discovery.

We offered you in this post some sound advice on how to begin the process of self deliverance.  If you need our help, call us at 518-477-5759. The lines are open.
