Prophecy or Divination?

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

fb_50

Charismatic wolves have opened the doors wide to religious demons with divination masquerading as prophecy.

Have you ever wondered why astrology is forbidden in the bible as an abomination to God?  Having once been an astrologer back in the 70’s, I will venture a guess.

Astrology is one of many forms of divination.  Divination is simply “fortune-telling” or making prognostications with pieces of information–probabilities and possibilities— that are not exact knowledge.

To please God, we must trust Him by walking by faith and not by sight.  To seek to know the future is to “not trust God.” Simple.

Furthermore, behind every act of divination are several assigned demons or fallen angels.  These spirit entities have been around a lot longer than human beings.  They live in a realm where the past, present and the future are a continuum and time is not bound by our linear expectations.  So angels and demons have the capacity to reach into the future or reach back to the past and reveal bits of potential truth to the seeker.  However, pulling out a segment of the future and presenting it before its time can have disastrous consequences.

In “the New Idolatry“ you will find these words concerning divination in the Institutional Church:

Divination within the organized church community is aimed at controlling the lives and destinies of gullible people. Pulpits are filled with diviners and soothsayers–charismatic type hype masters —-that have no other message but one that caters to our flesh.  Like the astrologers, the card layers and such, the divination of old has progressively worsened in our time because the church community is now flooded with false prophets who the ignorant seek “for a personal word from God.” These pseudo messengers leave devastated people in their paths. As they prophesy presumptuously in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, declaring things that He has NOT spoken to them, is comparable to New Age divination.”

Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. So a spirit will tell you that your friend or your neighbor is a witch or a wizard. And it may be true. But they want to make sure you know it so they can put fear in you of that person. Then the demons will use your self-induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring THEIR plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy.

You see, they can’t “do what they do,” without your cooperation and consent.

In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits. About five years ago, someone sent me a message. She had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me and that they were attempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold her. Wouldn’t make any sense because the damage had already been done.  The goal is to project fear into their target by making sure they hear that someone is practicing witchcraft on them.  At that very moment, I was involved in an antagonistic situation with someone who had “witchcraft in her background.” So of course, my eyebrow was raised but I didn’t panic. I was just extra careful and observant. That was seven years ago and nothing has transpired.

The thing to do is to “watch and pray.” Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Also, you would-be prophets, don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone who you care about. Pray and rest in God. If God showed her that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling her to pray. Fallen angels are extremely skilled at using friends, the people even of your own household, to speak evil into your life. So wisdom is certainly necessary. I learned the hard way to “be slow to speak.”

For more information on this subject, the New Idolatry is a must read. So is “The Church of the End-time Zombies, The Fake Jesus and Faces of the Religious Demon. Also Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministries revels how some who claim to be casting out demons are in fact unknowingly helping demons out with their predictions that do not emanate from the Holy Spirit.

The Curses and Plagues of the IC by Pam Sheppard

preacher

We all have been lulled into a semi or fully delusional state where we are drugged into believing something we know deep down inside ‘just isn’t right.’ We just went to church and went along with the programs to get along. We didn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak, out of fear that we would be labeled ‘rebellious,’ ‘unfaithful,’ ‘unteachable,’ or a host of other names leadership likes to place on thinking people who were blessed with common sense AND wisdom to know game when they see it.

When I was a faithful pastor in the IC, I had several memorable dreams that showed me the spiritual condition of the entire IC but I misinterpreted them. I thought the dreams were pertaining to the actual church I saw, when a particular church was only intended to be representative. A symbol OF THEM ALL.

in these dreams, the pulpit and altar area were defiled with menstrual blood, feces and urine. I would also dream about toilets overflowing in the sanctuary. I did not understand those dreams until after I left the IC.

I now know that the defilement represented the plagues. For in the natural, plagues have broken out because of infectious, unclean conditions like rats and such. The unclean natural condition of a house will cause it to be condemned, boarded up. A haunted house is filled with the demons that once inhabited the dead who lived in that house. When the inhabits died, the demons came out and did not have anywhere else to go and reside unless new people rented or bought the house.

I call the IC a haunted house because it is filled with evil spirits who have taken Her over, because of the plagues. These are the seducing spirits that the Apostle Paul warned Timothy about. They are fallen angels that specialize in teaching religion. Jesus called the religious folk of his day, white washed tombs on the outside, contaminated with dead men’s bones on the inside. This is the institutional church today. It is a huge whitewashed tomb. A haunted house.

Don’t let the white washed physicality, Her stained glass beauty fool you. The spirit realm is invisible to our eyes but it still exists. In the spirit realm, every pulpit is covered in unclean blood, urine and feces, no matter how sincere the pastor or how helpful and kind are Her members.

In the last few years, I have not focused on warning people to “come out of Her.” It could be that since I have not been actively IN Her since 2004, for me its kind of “out of sight, out of mind.” However, I had some dreams this morning that brought my task back into focus.

In the first dream, I received the result of two curses that I wont go into here. I will simply say that one involved the destruction of property and the other dealt with both a ministerial and a health issue combined in a curse. In the next dream, I found myself in a church. As I am dreaming, I think “I am not supposed to be in here.” Anyway, the grand, important purpose I had before I came to this church left my memory and I was given the assignment to do the congregational prayer.

I started to pray but there was a group of women working on a project who were laughing and talking loud, distracting me from my prayer. So I stop praying and I ask them to choose between their project and my prayer. They were nasty and rude and with venom, chose their project. As I was leaving, they stood in the doorway of the church. As they reminded me of the curses of the previous dream, they boastfully took ownership and responsibility for those curses. They sneered and jeered at me and I woke up.

I was overjoyed to awake because it felt like I was in a haunted house, for real!!!

Curses are specific to an individual but plagues don’t discriminate. A plague takes down both the innocent and the guilty together, insidiously, progressively and consistently. The Lord warned that if you stay, you are a partaker of Her sins and that you will receive of Her plagues. (Rev 18:4)

Don’t say you have not been warned.

Shake the Dust From Your Feet, Part 1

Mark 6:10-12

 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence,shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

Ok.

We all have heard this ‘shake the dust off your feet’ and keep it moving phrase before..in the church.

What I want to point out is that in Mark 6, the disciples went about preaching the Kingdom of God…from ‘house’ to ‘house.’  In the midst of this, there was a lot of healing going on.  Miracles.  Signs and wonders.

Take note that most of these miracles, healings, and deliverances were going on OUTSIDE of the temple.

Jesus had already admitted that because of their UNBELIEF, He couldn’t do ANY mighty works.

Do you see that?

Today, the ‘church’  is crying out for signs, miracles and wonders, yet THE REAL JESUS OF NAZARETH is NOT in the building!

Some get upset and state the above scripture is some type of curse.  I will say that it is more of a command.  It came STRAIGHT FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD, by way of Jesus Christ.  So WHATEVER HE SAYS, THAT I WILL DO!

Many do not embrace THIS particular teaching of Christ Jesus because they have a false perception of love.  They think that by leaving the church and not looking back, that that constitutes ‘putting a curse’ on a congregation.

Nothing could be MORE LAUGHABLE!

The Word of God says a curse causeless shall not stand (Proverbs 26:2).  That means no one can curse you unless you are in DISOBEDIENCE or NOT RELATIONSHIP with God.  If you are TRULY BORN AGAIN, you have been redeemed from the curse (of the law).

In other words, the only way a curse can work on you is if you are not saved!!!  Or in rebellion.

Let’s clear up some things:  first, God DOES send prophets to a group of people.  Second, if that group of people refuses to take heed to the voice of GOD and be  obedient, then JESUS HIMSELF commands those WHO ARE SENT to SHAKE THE DUST OFF YOUR FEET AND KEEP IT MOVING!!!!!

Trust me:  you do NOT want to disobey God when He calls you to come out of a church system!  You will be cursed right along with those people!  Guilt by association…

Take another look at the story of Sodom and Gomorrah:  all of Lot’s family got out of harm’s way when judgment came…all EXCEPT Lot’s wife!  And it wasn’t even because she stayed behind when God said go.  It was because she MERELY LOOKED BACK at that which God told her to RELEASE!!!!!!

Look…

God has been dealing with a LOT of you to come out of these churches, yet you stay because you think that your presence would make a difference.  Your prayers are just oh-so-powerful that now YOU-PROPHET ALMIGHTY, APOSTLE ALMIGHTY, EVANGELIST ALMIGHTY-you think YOU are going to change the church.

NO….YOU ARE NOT!

Just like God warned Lot and his people to get out of Dodge  so they wouldn’t suffer judgment with Sodom and Gomorrah, so DO YOU have to TOTALLY and COMPLETELY remove yourself-mind, body, soul, and spirit-from these churches.  If you have been instructed by God to GO, GGGOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Judgment was already in the works for S & G….nothing that Lot, his people, Abraham-the Father of ALL nations-or HIS people could do to change God’s mind.

The intercession that Abraham brought before God did NOT work for the people of Sodom & Gomorrah!  It only had enough ‘prayer power’ to save Abraham and his people!!!!!

I have mistakenly thought God was placing upon me a ‘burden’ for the lost in the church, so that’s why I should stay, fast and pray.

And the longer I stayed, the more harm I brought upon myself and my house!  God had to literally use TWO hurricanes to get me out of ONE false church!!!

Hurricanes Katrina AND Gustav!

That’s right…it’s only the mercies of GOD that we were NOT consumed!

And here I thought I was doing God’s service!

After Gustav…I was OUT OF THERE!

God led me to Jeremiah 15 yesterday during devotion.  I encourage you to go it, read it and study it.  It is a VERY sobering message…for a VERY sobering time!

In Come Out of Her, God’s People  by Pam Sheppard, we are offered hope in the midst of transition as well as given reasons why to leave the organized church system.

Stay tuned for  ‘Shake the Dust From Your Feet, Part 2’  where Pam discusses her exodus from the church!

Shake the Dust From Your Feet, Part 2

SHAKE THE DUST AND DON’T LOOK BACK

By Pam Sheppard

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 are interested in knowing how, call 518-477=5759.

Generational Curses: Are They Real?

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 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 anxiety 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.  


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.  It’s 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.

In “Come Out of Her, God’s People you will find these words:

‘There are many who practice a professing Christian religion who live under a curse because they have either added to or taken away from the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I have found from our studies that demons are having a field day with professing Catholics, Mormons, (Latter Day Saints) Jehovah Witnesses, Coptics, Christian Scientists and others.  When you profess to be a Christian yet Jesus is not Lord and the Holy Spirit is not God in your so-called Christian faith, demons will use this fact against you as an occasion to rule in your life.  The demons will be successful because you are practicing a religion that has “added to or detracted” from the gospel.”

Since most of those who come to Sheppard’s Counseling Center  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 are not cursed but “plagued.”

                        Let a word to the wise be sufficient.

 

 

 

 

 

Deliverance Ministry's Use of A List of Demon Names

Deliverance Ministry’s Use of a List of Demon Names

In the field of deliverance ministry, there are 3 schools of thought: The Spiritual Warfare School, the Providential School and the Laodicean World View.

The Spiritual Warfare school of thought is like this. God is not really sovereign and therefore the light and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ is NOT sufficient to set captives free.  As such, new doctrines have been created like “generational curses” as an outstanding example.  New doctrines have been created by those who have taken scripture of its natural context to develop a complicated practice known as “deliverance ministry.”  In the spiritual warfare world view, we MUST know the names of demons.  Too often, proponents of this view ask demons what their names are, expecting them to tell them the truth, based on ONE scripture where Jesus asked for a name and the demon answered, “Legion, for we are many.”  Let’s face it. The Lord wasn’t going to stand there and call out 6000 names.

Then there is the Providential School.  These are those who believe that God is in control and therefore, all we need to do about demons is to seek after Jesus, live a righteous life and not pay any attention to demons. Don’t study them, simply call on the Lord to be delivered.  To them I ask. “What about Job? There was no more of a righteous man in his day and time, yet God set Job up to contend with the devil.

I stand with a school that I myself have laid the foundation for: The Laodicean School.

I start with the premise that we are living in the 7th church age of Laodicea. As the Lord points out, this is an age of gross religious deception due to pride, spiritual blindness and vanity. Therefore, EVERYTHING supernatural must be tried and tested. Deliverance ministry is supernatural and so it too must be “suspect” as it was designed and created by deceived Christians in the early 70’s: Frank and Ida Hammond with their book “Pigs in the Parlor,” and Derek Prince and his books, particularly “How to Expel Demons.”

I take the best from both views. God is in control but He requires us to know the enemy’s tricks and wiles.

Do I have a list of names?  Yes. A very short list.

TO BE CONTINUED

For a detailed presentation of these 3 schools of thought, the New Idolatry would be helpful as they are described in detail in a chapter entitled “The Conspiracy of Deliverance Ministry.”

Beware of Taking Scripture Out of Its Natural Context

Since preachers take scripture out of their natural context to preach a sermon, we do the same thing when we read, study and apply various texts to our particular situation, like occultist and new agers use astrology and other forms of divination. For example, some use psalm 37 in the wrong way, particularly where it comes to dealing with enemies when Jesus told us to love our enemies in the 4 gospels.

Paul wrote to the Galatians that anyone who adds to or detracts from the word of God brings a curse or in other words, “a plague” on both the culprits and the victims they teach.  Paul declared it THIS way: If any man preach any other gospel, other than what i have preached, LET HIM BE CURSED.” (Gal 1:9)

Two thousand years have passed since Paul’s rather serious proclamation.  I am not a historian, but I would imagine that any church or religion professing to be Christian that either subtracts from or adds to  the gospel of Jesus Christ has reaped the fruit of this curse, from one generation to another. Today, there are countless people who are being oppressed and tormented by demons because they are listening to those who are preaching “another gospel.”

In this generation, there are more false doctrines that have been created by  preachin and teachin folk who  either added to or took away  from the gospel of Jesus Christ,  than most people could count.  Even in things that seem insignificant.  Take for example, the verse in Luke 13, when Jesus healed a woman who had been  crippled—bowed down by the devil for 18 years.  After the Lord cast that demon of infirmity  from her by healing her, He said “Woman, thou are loosed!”

Yet TD Jakes –an intelligent, well learned preacher— took the Lord’s words, and turned it into “somethin else.”  In other words, he added to it a meaning that the Lord did not mean and he created a “Christian woman’s liberation movement out of it,” even made a movie—called it “Woman Thou Art Loosed,” a movie  where a woman takes a gun while in church, and shoots a man who had raped her when she was a child,— at the very moment the man was touched and moving toward the altar to be saved.  Now, that is adding to and detracting from the Lord’s own words  to the max, and making millions of dollars out of the words that are written in the gospels concerning the Lord’s ministry of deliverance. What did the Lord mean by those words?  He meant “woman you are no longer bound by a demon because I have just set you free from your arthritic condition.  What does deliverance of a physically crippled woman  from demons  have to do with women’s liberation and shooting rapists in church?

These are the kinds of things professing Christians are doing EVERYDAY.  They are adding to and detracting from the bible and wondering why they are in the devil’s hands.

HOW CHRISTIANS CURSE THEMSELVES

Paul wrote to the Galatians that anyone who adds to or detracts from the word of God brings a curse or in other words, “a plague” on both the culprits and the victims they teach.  Paul declared it THIS way: If any man preach any other gospel, other than what i have preached, LET HIM BE CURSED.” (Gal 1:9)

 Two thousand years have passed since Paul’s rather serious proclamation.  I am not an historian, but I would imagine that any church or religion professing to be Christian that either subtracts from or adds to  the gospel of Jesus Christ has reaped the fruit of this curse, from one generation to another. Today, there are countless people who are being oppressed and tormented by demons because they are listening to those who are preaching “another gospel.”

In this generation, there are more false doctines that have been created by  preachin and teachin folk who  either added to or took away  from the gospel of Jesus Christ,  than most people could count.  Even in things that seem insignificant.  Take for example, the verse in Luke 13, when Jesus healed a woman who had been  crippled—bowed down by the devil for 18 years.  After the Lord cast that demon of infirmity  from her by healing her, He said “Woman, thou are loosed!”
