Charlotsville, The Church and Racism

Written by Gloria

The recent event in Charlottesville, Virginia is one of the many examples that show we do not live in a post-racial society. Racism seems to be one of the many social ills that has continued throughout the centuries without a clear end in sight.

What happened?

A “Unite the right” rally was planned for Aug 12 in protest to removing the statue of Robert E Lee, a confederate icon. A day before on Aug 11, a march was held at the University of Virginia where the crowds chanted “white lives matter” & “blood & soil”.

The protesters showed up on Aug 12 and clashed with counter demonstrators. The rally turned deadly as a speeding car killed one person and injured 19. Trump held a press conference days later which left many stunned and drew a lot of criticism as he stated that both groups were to blame.

The Church’s Stand

What has been the response from the church leadership not only over the racial divide which seems to be deepening but also where is the support from the leader of the free world, President Donald Trump who clearly stated that there are many good people in neo-Nazis & white supremacist groups?

For the most part, the Institutional church herein referred to as the I.C. hasn’t raised a strong, united voice indicating where they stand on the issue. Consequently, the silence in itself is both telling and deafening by comparison,for when business advisers have publicly stepped away from Trump, by contrast, the Nation’s evangelical leaders have made no or little noise over the issue and they remain steadfast and committed to Trump.

As an example, here are some quotes from various church leaders:-

Robert Jeffries, one of Trumps advisors said this on his twitter account,
“Pray for peace in Charlottesville and across our nation,” and “Let there be no misunderstanding. Racism is sin. Period,”

Paula White on her twitter account wrote about the event mentioning that there is a need for renewal of grace and for God to help us.

Franklin Graham defended Trump on his Facebook page stating that the shame should be on politicians that want to blame Trump.

Joel Osteen on his Facebook page wrote that, “…When somebody doesn’t agree with us or not doing what we like, it’s easy to get in conflict with them, to argue, to try to straighten them out, to prove our point. No, you have to be the bigger person. Just because they’re doing wrong doesn’t mean you have to engage.” 

The bottom-line is that many mega church leaders haven’t said anything at all.

This mixed reaction where some leaders condemned what happened, others spoke vaguely and others have remained completely silent shows the lack of unity in the I.C.

We live in troubling times; it is not the time to panic! But it’s time to get your life in order and prepare yourself mentally, spiritually, emotionally & even learn several survival skills should any disaster happen. Leaders in the I.C. are not preparing their congregations to understand the times and many unsuspecting churchgoers will be caught off guard when the rapture they are waiting for doesn’t happen and they are faced with the tribulation.

This post is not to analyze the racial divide that is deep in America. It’s to simply shed light on the fact that the I.C. is unable to give proper guidance to their church goers and one of the reasons is due to the fact that she is divided.

Jesus predicted the division that would happen to the Institutional church. He did this using the parable of the mustard seed.

Matthew 13:31-32
31 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, 32 which indeed is the least of all the seeds; but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.”

In order to understand this parable, you have to look at the history of the church:-

The Seed -The church had very humble beginnings with the disciples who symbolize the mustard seed.

The huge tree – From 312 AD when Constantine issued the Edict of Milan, Roman practices were mixed with Christian beliefs leading to the creation of the Roman Catholic Church that grew far and wide, virtually unopposed for centuries.

Branches – The protestant reformation that opposed the many false doctrines of the Catholic church occurred in the 16th Century. The church split as many denominations were created.

Birds nest in its branches – demons infiltrated the churches, bringing false doctrines with them. (in Matthew 13:4- birds represents demons).

Clearly the Lord Jesus warned our present generation with this parable prophesied over 2000 years ago.

A clear and simple analysis is that the I.C. is infiltrated by demons and that is why she is weak. All she has is a form of godliness but no power. The early church with the apostles was relatively small but moved with great power but the Laodicean church of today is large but weak & lukewarm, unable to make any significant impact.Clearly, the Spirit of God is no longer in the I.C. The Lord warned you with the parable of the mustard seed. If you seek direction from her, you will be led into more confusion.

The Lord Jesus said on the other hand that HE will build his own Church and the gates of hell will not prevail. Matthew 16:18. He was not referring to the Institutional Church, but to all the believers throughout the centuries that have remained faithful to Him because he has kept them. From every generation, God always has HIS remnant who remain faithful to him.

Kicked Out of the Church? You’re Not Alone…Or Bad!

Pam Sheppard was a minister/pastor in a mainline denomination for over two decades.  In this video, she tells of her experiences within the institutionalized church.

I, too, was kicked out of a church.  I was pregnant with my now 18 year old daughter.  The pastor preached on me, rebuked me and told me to leave his church because I refused to sell praline pecan candy at the local Wal-Mart in Louisiana.  I was like 8 months pregnant and my feet were swollen like tree logs!

Pam and I both came to the realization that the institutionalized church was NOT the place to be.  We had went in seeking more of God, and we both believe that GOD HIMSELF orchestrated a chain of events that led to us being rejected by mainstream religion…NOT because we were bad people, or rebellious.

But for HIS PURPOSE.

I know there are people who will never accept the ‘COME OUT OF HER’ message.  They will maintain that people who teach this are nothing more than a group of people who have been wounded within the church system.  They haven’t found the ‘right’ church, implying that ‘their church’ is the right one.  They will say we are bitter, blah, blah, blah.

NOTHING CAN BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

We are an enlightened group of people who recognize the voice of God above the hoopla and hype of religion and charis-mania.   And we believe that there are other people who are hearing the same thing.

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.

My False Conversion: An Anonymous Testimony

Author Anonymous

MY FALSE CONVERSION

Looking back, it is no surprise that I had a false conversion. The cross of Christ, I never heard of it. No, not in church. I never heard a sermon on the message of the cross, until my first Easter sunday in a Word of Faith church. I found out that the message I did hear, was a recycled message that anybody could find online. The message was staged, and the pastor jumped down from the pulpit with a hop and stylish skip. He had, what Pam Sheppard calls a gimmick. The hop, the stylish skip, and the jumping from the pulpit, with a flourish might as well have been a stage show. The cross of Christ message the pastor gave never touched me. I sat there admiring his alligator shoes, and fancy pin stripe suit. Why? Because I was not saved then.

I thought I got saved while listening to a Benny Hinn broadcast. Benny Hinn called my name, he said ” You you are saved”. My Mom looked at me with glee, and led me into the sinners prayer. I felt a little sorry for sins, I felt good and I wondered what God would now give or do for me. The cross of Christ, the resurrection power, Godly sorrow and repentance were not found in me. It was a set-up from the devil. I had a false conversion. I had what Pam Sheppard has coined a ” counterfeit birth “.
What happened when I finally got saved for real? I did not get saved in a church. I got saved in my own bedroom. My son’s father died after being in a coma for about three days. During the period of his ill-health, and after years of abuse from him he was attending church. This man, who had been a problem to me for many years began apologizing left and right. At the time, I was what the church falsely labels backslidden. Pam Sheppard has taught us this truth, yet some refuse to receive it.
.
My friends, there is no such thing as a backslidden Christian, for as the Apostle Paul says, in the Book of Hebrews 6:4,5,6 it is impossible.
It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift to fall away and be renewed again. If they shall fall away, to renew themselves again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God AFRESH, and put him to an open shame.
So then, when you are truly saved there is no backsliding. If there is backsliding ,what we are saying is the cross of Christ, and message of the cross, did not take the first time. What kind of mess is that? Is Christ’s resurrection power so weak, that the knowledge of it fails the first time, but works if we hear it a few more times?
Anyway, there I was in sin and never saved from the get go’. Don’t get me wrong, we do grow in Christ, but if we are truly saved we do not return to total darkness and start drinking like a fish and fornicating like a champ. If we do, as I did, we were never saved in the first place.
Back to the story of how I got truly saved. My son was deathly sick and hospitalized. I realized that I was bitter towards him. I felt bad about that and begun to pray. I kept seeing a vision in front of me of the cross of Christ, I kept seeing Jesus on the cross and at first, did not know why.
As the days passed, I understood that I had never know Jesus at all. All I knew was a God who was going to give me ” stuff “. All I knew was a Jesus who was rich who would one day make me rich. Thanks to the Word of Faith church I had met ” The Fake Jesus ” who Pam exposes in one of book’s entitled the same.
ebook www.lulu.com/content/12044954

I had pledged and made an unholy alliance with Satan. My story continues. As I shared my son’s father Brett was ill and I kept seeing the cross of Christ, and Jesus on the cross before me in vision. I had been praying about my own bitterness and reluctance to visit him. I called someone who reminded me of what Jesus had said on that cross. Jesus said, ” forgive them father, they know not what they do”. The word of Christ prompted me to visit Brett Sr. It was the day he had slipped into a coma. I went to his bedside. Kissed his hand and sung his favorite church songs. Kissed him on the forehead and told him I forgave him, and forgave myself. He passed away that night.

 

I was saved in my bedroom as the days progressed. I realized what a hypocrite I had been. I was never saved. How could I have been. I had returned to drugs, fornication and the world. The message of the cross never made a dent in me, I never heard it. When I did hear it once it was from an unsaved man posing as a pastor. I had looked death in the face because my son’s father died. I knew that if I died then, I would have gone into hell. But it was not hell itself that scared me. What frightened me, was that I would be totally cut off from God. I had fancied myself a spiritual person, a person who loved God and wrote Christian poetry. Those moments that I sat in my room, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I was neither spiritual or saved. My so-called love for God was not there.
My life in church flashed before me. I had been a works salvation. A works salvation is a ” counterfeit birth “. I was churched, as Pam would say. I had been on church boards and committees and such, but I was unsaved.  I had written fancy Christian poetry, dripping with fleshy sentiment. When trouble came, I faltered from a crumbling foundation. My faith was never built on the rock. I was a wayside ” counterfeit birth”.
My bitterness flashed before me. I harbored bitterness against those who I thought had wronged me. I suffered clinical depression, the open door of unforgiveness had ushered in a demonic spirit. How on earth is one saved and still having bouts of depression? Where is the power of the cross in that? I was a liar and a fake, the God I thought I loved was just then drawing me to him in my bedroom. I cried, and I cried and I repented in those tears. As I lay in my bed the Lord bought me to Isaiah 53. Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? I had never believed the report that Jesus Christ of Nazareth died on the cross, that gruesome death but rose in the flesh. I never understood myself to be a wretched sinner. I had never understood, that this man Jesus, who was man and God in the flesh had to die in order for me to be saved.
I never knew that the sacrifice of his very life was needed to cleanse. What price can you put on a life? What price can you put on the life of the Son of God. As I read through Isaiah 53 and learned of the suffering servant, my joy became full. I knew why the Lord drew me to him by showing me a constant vision of Jesus on the cross. The work that was done on the cross proved the complete power of God which no devil can match. Christ was dead but now alive in the flesh. The disciples had seen and believed this 2000 years ago, and I was seeing  and believing  it for the first time. And it was the same power that lifted Jesus from the cross that was now lifting me up.
I believed the report that day. I was grateful for what Christ had done on the cross, for me and for those who would believe on him. I was grateful for his mercy. I was happy and besides myself with joy. God had drawn me. His love was clear to me. My friends, the agony of that cross and the suffering it took to save me was clear. I loved the Lord God for his eternal kindness and saving grace. I deserved nothing, but God through Christ had given me all I will ever need. So then, in my bedroom, after years of church, I was finally saved.
I receive and trust every word that Pamela Sheppard teaches. For she speaks truth, the organized church is a conglomerate of condemned  buildings.

A Former Pastor Warns: Leave the Church Part 3

LEAVE THE CHURCH AND COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM

I started out for 33 years of life an atheist. In 33 years, I attended church just ONE day in my life.   Once I had a ‘Damascus Road” type of experience with the Lord, I was sold out for Him.  And it was two years—1979–before I attended any church.  I went because I had 3 consecutive dreams of a local pastor, and all 3 dreams urged me to find this man, the late Rev. Lester.  (not his real name.) Not once in more than 25 years did I ever consider that it was NOT God who sent me those dreams.  I didn’t find out until AFTER I had finished my 4th book, “the Fake Jesus:Fallen Angels Among Us.”  How did I find out?  The Lord spoke to me and  quietly  said, “I did not send you those 3 dreams that sent you to that church.”  Simple.

Why did He wait so long to tell me this?  Well, I never asked Him.  I kinda “knew” without asking.  I needed to know the depth of perversion and depravity the organized church system actually is “from inside.”  You might say, “I was a spy.” I was never really a part of the system because the demons in it recognized that I was a spy before I actually knew it myself.  The Lord allowed a messenger of Satan to give me 3 dreams and several confirming signs that I was supposed to be there.  I was a church person for 25 years, in ministry about two years after I  first arrived.  I was in a denomination where several churches in a region are “connected.”  So I got to know about 100 ministers, about 10 percent of them as close regional associates.

Well, I knew it was depraved from the beginning.  My first pastor was a closet homosexual who also practiced a Caribbean form of witchcraft called “obeah.” He was one of the first to die of AIDS in the early 80’s.  Most of the ministerial elders that I had to submit my ministry to were depraved.  Thieves, drug abusers, fornicators, homosexuals, child abusers, you name it, undercover and sometimes openly, they did it.

I stayed as long as I did because the religious demon assigned to me played  a convincing game to prove that  God had me in the system to cause the system to repent.  So I was on my knees, sobbing, wailing and travailing for 25 years.  When things only got worst, commonsense should have told me, “Hey Pam, Don’t you “get it?” God is not answering your prayers in this matter. Why can’t you ‘figure it out?’ If God has not answered your prayers for repentance for 25 years, perhaps it is because “the time of repentance is over.  It just ain’t goin to happen, Gurl!!! Get up off your knees!”

I was pretty comfortable in the denomination in 2003.  I had started my own church and I kept my self separated from the religious politics, and the Bishop did not particularly care WHAT I was doing.  He treated me like I didn’t exist, and that worked well for me.  Then one day, the Lord spoke to me in a dream.  He showed me that “it was time to go.” He said “but let them PUT you out.”  Since I was not in any kind of trouble with the upper echelon, it seemed implausible that they would put me out.  Well 9 months from the dream, my name was removed from the denominations rolls.

Once out, I devoted myself to my online ministry which had begun in 2002 and to the church that I had founded in 1996. From 2004-2007, I waited for the Lord to send me to a different denomination, with my eyes on Full Gospel, non denominational groups.  It didn’t happen.  Then in 2007,  the Holy Ghost spoke again.  He compared the organized church to an inner city condemned building.  In short, He said “I’ve judged it already and I am no longer there.”

I said to myself “this COULD be the devil. It was too incredulous for me to believe that the Holy Ghost was not in the church.  I was in a state of shock.   So I tried the spirits through the study of church history for one year.  After that year, I knew I had heard from the Holy Ghost.  He is NOT there.

Since God is not there, no point in ME being there either!

 

The details of my  story are in the book, “Come Out of Her, God’s People.”  It is an eye opener that should be a part of your library. It is an “ah ha” kind of book.  It explains a lot about the organized church, its ministers and its members as well as “it plagues.” Also if you want to discuss this, your comments are welcome.  If you already know I speak the truth, you are invited to enter into deliverance mentoring where you will be assigned a trained minister to be in touch with 24/7. Someone who will be much better for you than even an AA or an NA sponsor because this minister is trained in deliverance and in counseling. To receive a mentor, call 518-477-5759.

HOW WE SET CAPTIVES FREE AT SHEPPARD’S COUNSELING CENTER

How We Set Captives FREE at SCC

The main objective of Christian counseling is to set captives free.

At Sheppard’ Counseling Center, the most important tool in the process is actually  the captive.  For example, if during the assessment process, the captive reveals that his or her faith is weak, or that there are major issues of doubt and un-belief, then a major objective of the assessment phase would be to build up the client’s faith.  The treatment plan  lists the problems, hindrances in the situation, the goals, objectives and the strategies toward building the captive’s faith.  We also consider whether or not the captive has a strong network system of Christian elders who can support the captive. Therefore, we employ a cadre of mentors or “ministers” for support and encouragement.

The Christian client today is one who has been duped by the organize church into easy believism. They have repeated a sinner’s prayer, acknowledged that they have accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts, and declared to be saved or born again.  What has happened is that the fake Jesus answered their invitation. They have worshipped Him through prayer meetings, bible studies, song and dance, yet they are not saved.  They don’t know it but the enemy DOES. Therefore, the weapons of spiritual warfare do not work for them.

Without the weapons that redemption affords: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the girdles of truth, the feet shod with the gospel of peace and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, the captive has to rely on a Christian counselor or minister who is truly saved—one who can successfully work the spiritual weapons against principalities and powers.

Even so, we have found that the captives’ free will is their best weapon.  So in deliverance counseling and mentoring, we encourage the captive to fight in cold blood.  From a Christian perspective, our role is akin to a trainer who prepares  a prizefighter for a boxing match.  As spiritual trainers, we are in the captive’s corner, giving specific instructions as to how to win the fight. The captive takes our instructions, does all that he or she can do, and when the time is right, we step in and finish the fight by casting out demons and commanding fallen angels to go about somebody elses business.

It has been our experience, that until captives use their own free will to revoke the invitation that they made to the fake Jesus, their psychic doorways or chakras will remain open, and demons will have unhindered access to their souls and spirits.  So we focus on closing those gateways by truth.  If the captive does not fight the process, victory is assured.

Since December 2002, we have discovered an astounding statistic.  At least 95% of the churchgoing captives  of Sheppard’s Counseling Center–about 300 professing Christians— did not understand either sin, repentance or the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  They do not know that they received the fake Jesus. 

Consequently, they worship whom they do not know.

This is an extremely appalling, pervasive condition, of epidemic proportions within the worldwide church.  Since we have counseled people in Australia, South Africa, England, Japan, Canada, the Caribbean and from at least 1/3 of the United States, the problem is the same.  An imposter god is being worshipped as if he is the Lord Almighty.  No wonder Jesus warned that in there would be people who would call Him “Lord,” and He will say “I NEVER knew you.”

As you read “Faces of the Religious Demon, you will find that each face or profile offers new insights and challenges.  You the reader will learn how any ground obtained by spirit entities , no matter how small or seemingly insignificant is “GROUND POSSESSED,” even though a captive himself may have no obvious manifestation of total possession.  Your eyes will also be opened to realize that even the slightest of ground claimed by the enemy can be so debilitating and even toxic to spiritual growth and empowerment, what is the point of quibbling over terms and inches?!” For if a demon has only one inch of territory, it will seem like a mile to a tormented captives.

SHAKE THE DUST AND DON'T LOOK BACK

 SHAKE THE DUST AND DON’T LOOK BACK

Leaving any social group is not an easy task.  All humans are social beings.
When we hurt and we are forced outside of a group’s circle, we either desire to
vindicate ourselves in one way or another, or we passively stew  in   a
simmering pot of self recriminations, depression and regrets.  When people
reject us because of WHO we are and NOT what we have actually done, then the pattern of our  private times of reflexion will cause us to  consider that
since we couldn’t fit in, perhaps the majority is right and the fault lies in
our own camp.

Let us also not forget that peer pressure from those we have left behind can
certainly  be a stumbling-block to those who for one reason or the other, found
themselves “outside the sheepfold.” Preachers probably denounced you openly from the pulpit in the hearing of your peers.  What follows is that your peers will take it upon themselves to believe that “you are in sin and going to hell
because you left them,” and so they will valiantly  try   to win you back.  When
you run into them in your community, some will sadly look at you and piously
repeat the platitude of “I’m praying for you,” while others may even scold you
with “a piece of their mind” about “you disrespected my pastor!.”

My church horror story is only the tip of the iceberg. You need this book to know why YOU must shake the dust to be safe in this hour.

My case was different because as a  former pastor and an evangelist for 25 years,  I was never really welcomed or  accepted in the Denomination in the first place. Even though I expected  that the people would be delirious with glee if I left them , coming out of  the church was not a “walk in the park” for
me by any stretch of the imagination.  Commonsense should have told me, “since these people cannot stand you and only tolerate you being among them,  why not just shake their dust from your feet?  It is clear that they will not accept you or the word that you preach, Pam!”

 

Believe me, after what I endured among them, some might think that  I was either a glutton for punishment or something “else” was going on with me. The truth is that I believed that I was God’s prophet, sent to a dying, sinning traditional church, to cause the people to turn from their wicked ways and repent.  Therefore, the spiritual abuse that I endured in that place was my way of “suffering for Christ.”  I strongly believed that God needed me to stay among the enemy in order to convert them.

So as a root in dry ground, my feet were firmly planted on hostile territory.  So when  I came out, it was  because “God spoke.”  He warned very clearly in a dream, “if you stay in that church, I will not be able to use you, and you shall remain a candle or a light, hidden under a bed. However, don’t leave on your own.  Let them put you out.”

At the time, my prophetic way of thinking caused me to believe that God
wanted the Denomination  to put me out because He wanted to judge them for not
receiving the prophet that He had sent them.  However, today, I am a lot less
self consumed.  You see, the Lord  eventually revealed that “He never sent me there in the first place, nor did He  or would He call a babe in Christ like I was in ’81,   into ministry in such a sinful place for the sheep in wolves clothing to overtake me!.”  When I tried the spirits and looked back at the time I believed that I was called, I could see how the devil’s hand was in ALL  of it.  I had heard from God!  Wow!

So I understand today,  that the Lord  desired the church to put me
out in 2004
in order to save me from  the  pervasive mental anguish of
constantly wondering if I had done the right thing by walking out on my own.  As a result,  I could not blame myself in any way for coming out since
they put ME out. It was a rather simple process.  Since I did
not attend the annual meeting,  the Bishop used a technicality to remove my
names from the rolls. Since I did not send in my annual dues of $660, the Bishop convinced the delegate voters that removing me was possible and acceptable within the laws of the Church.

Did I expect such a thing to happen?  No, I did not.  I had no idea how they
could even put me out because I was in excellent ministerial
standing.   This  was a technicality never before used,  for there were people
in nursing homes who had not sent in the annual dues for 10 years or more, yet their names were never removed.  Also, I was aware of other active ministers who never paid the dues at any time.  Therefore, I could have fought this arbitrary decision and remained a minister in good standing.  However, since God had already  revealed to me that I MUST come out 9 months before they  actually put me out, I did not protest. I left quietly.  I received only one call from a minister who enquired of my well-being.  No one else in hundreds of people tried to convince me to come back so leaving was made easy for me.

So that no one comes away from this thinking, “Oh, since she was so
spiritually abused, she is against the church entirely,” you need to
know this.
  When I was removed in 2004, I completely expected that God
would lead me to another church organization.  I waited patiently for 2 years
until I heard from the Lord “the next time”.  To my surprise, the Lord  revealed that He had no intention of sending me to any church.  A year or so later, the Lord explained why He desired that I remain “church free.” It has been a progressive revelation.

  As for the Denomination, the new Bishop invited me back in 2008.  He said
“Pam, I’ll support you in EVERYTHING that you do. I want you to
re-affiliate your ministry with us.  We need ministers like you. I am so sorry that the Denomination did not act like the Church.  I want you back.”

When a Bishop says words like that to any minister, he has the power to back
it up.  For example, a bishop has the power and influence to simply
“request” that each and every church under his authority   buy ALL of my books, in bulk.  We are talking about several thousands of  here and loads of dollars here.  I could have become  a best-selling author overnight by the request of ONE bishop.  A bishop  can also “suggest” to every pastor under his authority to invite me to preach or conduct seminars in their respective churches. This means even more dollars in my pocket.   The Bishop also  has the power to  appoint me to any church that I desire to pastor.  This means a church salary. One bishop also has influence with 11 others, who can do the exact  same thing for me in their respective regions, “at my Bishop’s  request.”  Now you are talking about millions.   A worldwide denomination, more than 200 years old, the bishops are in complete control over every pastor, minister and church under their charge.

Two days after speaking with the  new Bishop, “I heard from God.”  He
impressed upon me, “Pam, the 3 dreams that you had in 1979 that caused you to join the Denomination, were not sent to you by Me.  I never sent you to that church, nor did I desire for you to become a minister therein. The words that the Bishop spoke to you two days ago were not inspired by Me either!”

The Lord did not mention the devil ONE time.  However, since I knew that I
did not create those dreams and that I did not call myself into ministry, the
only other choice was “obvious!”

Leaving the organized church, and not looking back, is going
to be extremely difficult for some of you, particularly for those that have been
favored or at least well received,  and for those who have had  satisfying
ministries or may even have earned some income. Don’t be surprised, if  it may be somewhat challenging  to break those ties.  When your children have bonded with other children and have participated in daycare, afterschool programs, summer camp and the like, cutting ties is even more complicated. Music ministries are particularly challenging. So are friendships that provided you with opportunities for companionship and Christian fellowship.
To ALL of you, I say these brief words, a few from the Lord, a few from
me:

If your righthand offend you, cut it off.

If you need to be social, join the Y!  You will be much safer.  Much
better off.

However,  to help you make up your mind, consider this.  There are 3 main
reasons that you should leave your church, without looking back.

1.  Fallen angels have been feverishly and skillfully working  for about a
century to infiltrate  the entire organized  church system with false doctrines,
in order to be able to gain access to all pulpits.  Demons and
devils have brought plagues into the churches.  People are being
tormented.

2. Since ALL but a few churches are caught up in the decisional salvation
message, namely, that man chooses Christ by repeating a sinner’s prayer or
responding to an altar call, Are there saved people in church?
Certainly!  However, ask them how they got saved.  I am willing to bet that the day they got saved, “they were not in church.”

3.  There is coming a movement called “Joel’s Army.”  In fact, it is already
here. Once this movement really takes hold, Joel’s Army leaders teach
that there will be a civil war among the churches.  Those who are in
disagreement with their doctrines and practices  will be removed or “wiped
out.”  Since this war is not only spiritual but “natural,” you may have to take
a pistol into church with you one day coming  too soon for comfort.

Once you come out, Beloved, then I warn you.  Don’t look
back.
What do you do in the meantime? Well, you can form a home church.  If you

If You Are Saved, You Must Come Out of The Church System

10/25/11 Thirty Years a Minister!

I started out for 33 years of life an atheist.  Once I had a ‘Damascus Road” type of experience with the Lord, I was sold out for Him.  And it was two years—1979–before I attended any church.  I went because I had 3 consecutive dreams of a local pastor, and all 3 dreams urged me to find this man, the late Rev. Lester.  (not his real name.) Not once in more than 25 years did I ever consider that it was NOT God who sent me those dreams.  I didn’t find out until AFTER I had finished my 4th book, “the Fake Jesus:Fallen Angels Among Us.”  How did I find out?  The Lord spoke to me and  quietly  said, “I did not send you those 3 dreams that sent you to that church.”  Simple.

Why did He wait so long to tell me this?  Well, I never asked Him.  I kinda “knew” without asking.  I needed to know the depth of perversion and depravity the organized church system actually is “from inside.”  You might say, “I was a spy.” I was never really a part of the system because the demons in it recognized that I was a spy before I actually knew it myself.  The Lord allowed a messenger of Satan to give me 3 dreams and several confirming signs that I was supposed to be there.  I was a church person for 25 years, in ministry about two years after I  first arrived.  I was in a denomination where several churches in a region are “connected.”  So I got to know about 100 ministers, about 10 percent of them as close regional associates.

Well, I knew it was depraved from the beginning.  My first pastor was a closet homosexual who also practiced a Caribbean form of witchcraft called “obeah.” He was one of the first to die of AIDS in the early 80’s.  Most of the ministerial elders that I had to submit my ministry to were depraved.  Thieves, drug abusers, fornicators, homosexuals, child abusers, you name it, undercover and sometimes openly, they did it.

I stayed as long as I did because the religious demon assigned to me played  a convincing game to prove that  God had me in the system to cause the system to repent.  So I was on my knees, sobbing, wailing and travailing for 25 years.  When things only got worst, commonsense should have told me, “Hey Pam, Don’t you “get it?” God is not answering your prayers in this matter. Why can’t you ‘figure it out?’ If God has not answered your prayers for repentance for 25 years, perhaps it is because “the time of repentance is over.  It just ain’t goin to happen, Gurl!!! Get up off your knees!”

I was pretty comfortable in the denomination in 2003.  I had started my own church and I kept my self separated from the religious politics, and the Bishop did not particularly care WHAT I was doing.  He treated me like I didn’t exist, and that worked well for me.  Then one day, the Lord spoke to me in a dream.  He showed me that “it was time to go.” He said “but let them PUT you out.”  Since I was not in any kind of trouble with the upper echelon, it seemed implausible that they would put me out.  Well 9 months from the dream, my name was removed from the denominations rolls.

Once out, I devoted myself to my online ministry which had begun in 2002 and to the church that I had founded in 1996. From 2004-2007, I waited for the Lord to send me to a different denomination, with my eyes on Full Gospel, non denominational groups.  It didn’t happen.  Then in 2007,  the Holy Ghost spoke again.  He compared the organized church to an inner city condemned building.  In short, He said “I’ve judged it already and I am no longer there.”

I said to myself “this COULD be the devil. It was too incredulous for me to believe that the Holy Ghost was not in the church.  I was in a state of shock.   So I tried the spirits through the study of church history for one year.  After that year, I knew I had heard from the Holy Ghost.  He is NOT there.

Since God is not there, no point in ME being there either!

Why A Former Pastor Warns Churchgoers About Preaching

I was a pastor and a  preacher for almost 3 decades. I preached an average of one sermon a week for 20 years, with 8 of those years preaching 3 sermons a week.  On one occasion in the pulpit, I felt a strange power come upon me where it seemed I was “not myself.” I was in a rather strong altered state of consciousness. I thought is was an extra powerful anointing of the Holy Ghost. IT WAS NOT!!!

Pam Sheppard, “THE LORD LED ME OUT AFTER 25 YEARS AS A PASTOR”

When I was sent to church for the first  in 1979, I had never heard a sermon and so when I was informed in 1981 that upon entering ministry, I would be required to preach a trial sermon on October 25, 1981, I had no idea what a sermon was. In the summer of ’81, I began to preach in my sleep, in preparation for the October day of trial. I also walked around all day for about 30 days, muttering “sermons.”

I thought that I was under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. It took about 25 years for me to find out that in those early and strange days, I was under the “anointing” of the religious demon assigned to me. I thank God then when   DID enter the pulpit to preach and pastor, it was only ONE time in at least 2 thousand sermons that that same power came upon me. I have since discovered that it is a demonic power, in no way, the Holy Ghost.

Oh yes! Demons enjoy preaching. I came out of a denomination where men who were adulterers, fornicators, perverts, closet homosexuals could preach so hard, that they could affect even me, in spite of what I knew about the intimate, sometimes secret details of their lives.At least 10 times a year, 50 ministers gathered at various regional church functions and a handful would preach at these gatherings.

When they were preaching, I  harnessed down my soul from being overpowered, but there were times when I could not. Their power was too strong.  I often wondered about it over the years. How could these corrupt men overtake my soul with one of their sermons in spite of my resistance to it? Could this be God? Would God use such sinful creatures to preach HIS WORD???!!!

It took two decades or more to find out the answer to that question. The answer is NO!!!! The Holy Ghost does not anoint such preachers but the devil DOES!!!. It is called communal intoxication by the founder of sociology, Max Weber.

Communal intoxication is defined by Weber as the supernormal ability of magicians, wizards, witches and charismatic religious leaders.With the god concept at its center, they induce an altered state of consciousness in their followers as demonstrated by the congregation’s manifestation of convulsions, trembling, and intense effusions of excitement and ecstasy. (Come Out of Her God’s People, pg 190)

Weber points out that that communal intoxication has a contagious effect where it can spread throughout  an audience or congregation of people, infecting those assembled with sensations of enhanced emotionalism and vitality. This definition explains the so called holy dance, holy rollers, holy laughter, running around the church building, perhaps even tongues and slain in the spirit phenomena.

This power was manifested in my presence for 25 years  among denominational African American preachers. Keep in mind that Weber’s studies were predominately tribal communities on other continents, including Africa and Asia. Webers findings suggest that the altered state appeal has a significant connection to today’s charismatic leaders’ ability to cause large numbers of people to believe that they have been released from bondages and that they have “heard from God.”

As a result, what has been happening in church is that demons have been using corrupt ministers to preach. I would say that that is reason enough to “COME OUT OF HER, GOD’S PEOPLE.”
