DELIVERANCE MINISTRY OF ENDTIMES

 SETTING CAPTIVES FREE IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Greetings in the precious name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ.  This is an exciting endeavor.  It was 20 years ago that I had a dream of 12 miles of a highway where people were standing “on-line”, single file, at arm’s length.  It has only been recently that the meaning of this dream was revealed. The “highway” is the Internet and you, the people, are “on-line!” 

Allow me to share with you “on-line”, thirty (38) years as a licensed therapist in the state of NY and 30  years as an ordained servant of the Lord Jesus Christ!  I am also an author of six endtime, deliverance books.

I personally believe that we are living in the endtimes, and it is my hope that I will not see the grave before the Lord returns.  However, if I depart and leave you among the living, allow me to share with you the mandate, the  mission, and the
method  of Pam Sheppard Ministries so that you can go forth and “set captives free.

 Our mission is  to be used by the Holy Spirit to build up an international body of Christ-centered deliverance ministers.  Casting out demons in these times is not as simple a matter as commanding and expelling. The demons of today are extremely clever and sophisticated and unfortunately, the church is poorly equipped for demonic onslaught that the people of God are facing in these times.  Our goal is to equip the Body of Christ through training people like yourself who will “stand, having done all to stand, STAND THEREFORE!”

We  commit ourselves to excellence in every service that we render.   You will have hands on, personalized  and individualized instruction, with scheduled chat sessions, emails and telephone calls. Some of you may even visit us at our home site.  We want to develop associations and teams that will work together around the country and around the world. 

So give us a call at 518-477-5759.  I receive a special revelation from the Lord every holiday season.  I pray that the Holy Spirit  will give you a rich revelation in the knowledge of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of His name to set captives free.

In Christ,

PAM

Natural Disasters By the Hands of FALLEN ANGELS, NOT God!!!!!

THE “WHO’S WHO” ON A LIST OF DEMON NAMES

By Pamela Sheppard

There are demons and there are fallen angels which we can simply call “devils.” Demons must be cast out. Fallen angels must be driven away by the spiritual armor of Ephesians 6. Fallen angels desire to possess humans but it is difficult as we are of two entirely different creations. Demons on the other hand, have been half human. They lived in human flesh and were born and walked the earth in flesh before the flood. So demons desire to be in flesh as their favorite dwelling place. Demons also report to fallen angels.

There is a demon and  fallen angel that I call “the spirit of death.” The demon’s assignment is to take life by any means necessary BEFORE a person’s appointed time by sickness, accidents, suicide and homicides.

****Fallen angels work on natural disasters****

The spirit of death–the work of fallen angels— also orchestrates and designs phony life after death experiences.

There are also the list of demons that we see in the bible: the deaf and dumb spirit, the spirit of infirmity, the spirit of divination, and so on.  These are all demons.  The fallen angels are the principalities and powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high or heavenly places.  They are territorial and they are of huge size.  I have some pictures of the heads of these demons. The head is so big that the demons feet could be placed in two different US states, i.e. the left in NY and the right foot In New Jersey. Maybe California.  It is hard to tell.

As to “my” list, I primarily deal with the religious demon.  He is the one who causes false conversions by deceiving folk to “accept Jesus and ask Him to come into your hearts.” The one who answers that invitation is not Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  The fake Jesus responds by sending one of his religious demons to actually enter the seeker’s spiritual heart—the chakra or spiritual gateway guarded by an entity with a Hindu name called “Isha.”  Isha works for the fake Jesus who in the occult world is called Jesus Sananda Immanuel.  So two of the names on my list are Isha and Sananda.

Then there ore other doorways. Chakras are actually doorways for Hindu gods who themselves are really principalities and powers.  Each of these entities stand guard over each of the 7 portals: Over the crown is Shiva; the third eye is Hakini, the throat is Savashiva, the navel is Bahni, the sexual organs are Vishnu and Rakeeni, the anus is Brahma and the heart is Isha.

Since no where in the bible does it even suggest that we should “ask Jesus into our hearts,” the fallen angel Isha responds to the unsuspecting seekers “invitation” as a call to the fake Jesus Sananda who Isha serves.  So Isha opens the doorway to the heart and religious demons are able to enter and take up residence.

Where a false conversion is concerned, the captive must first have a revelation that they are not saved and that Sananda answered their invitation. So they must be strengthened in their free will to revoke the original invitation. Why? Because demons stand before God declaring that “they own you because YOU invited them.”

Then I make my commands in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazereth when I confront   Isha.  I cast out Isha and the rest of the religious demons will follow. They will flood out just as they did when Jesus spoke to Legion and ALL 6000 demons ran out and into the pigs.

But the truth of the matter is that for most demons that I have cast out since 1983, I didn’t need a specific name and I had no list of demon names.

Each of my six books has a deliverance component. Faces of the Religious Demon is my “deliverance textbook.” If you are a deliverance worker, or you just want to educate yourself on demonic strategies and tricks, this book is for YOU.

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.”

The Deliverance Mentoring Component of the SEW Program

The SEW Program stands for Spiritual Empowerment Workshop. Our online workshop includes Facebook and other social networks.

Consider that our spiritual life is like a journey.  You are on the broad road, and SEW Deliverance Mentoring   will lead you to the narrow way.  As you journey through the valleys to find your mountaintops, our trained ministers  are with you as a “travel guide” so to speak.  You have become accustomed to travelling alone, and perhaps with out even a map.  You have been walking for a long time and your bondage may have  brought you to a crossroad.

The first stage of  basic Christian mentoring is geared toward helping you make your own decisions about how much truth you are willing to receive to obtain freedom. The more you resist truth, the longer you will journey on the broad way, that leads to destruction.

 THE OBJECTIVES  OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING

We have found that most Christians who need deliverance mentoring are blinded by spiritual ignorance.  Our goal at SEW is to help you attain clear spiritual vision as we coach and train you to distinguish between good and evil. 

The goal of basic Christian mentoring  is to help you to be engaged, encouraged and enlightened  in your mind. As such, our objective at is to strengthen your spirit so that you will be able to recognize God’s will and choose it above your own.

However, the goal of deliverance mentoring  is to arm you to recognize and effectively deal with  the activity of the enemy in your life.  Deliverance mentoring is broken down into 4 components:

A SEARCH FOR COSMIC EVIL DOORWAYS: These are areas  in a person’s life which are giving or have given cosmic entities the right to enter or remain in the person. Asking Jesus to “come into your heart, a counterfeit birth, a background in the occult, unconfessed sins, ungodly soul ties, unforgiveness, holding cursed possessions (occult rings, etc.) and so forth can give demons a right to inhabit and torment a person. These legal grounds can be  removed by facing the truth,  repentance, renunciation, extending forgiveness, etc.

THE EXAMINATION OF STRONGHOLDS: These are basically incorrect thinking patterns in your mind. For example, if  you think God is angry with you because you have committed the unpardonable sin, then you will feel like He is. This stronghold may open you to panic attacks, paranoia  or obsessive compulsive behavior. Strongholds are torn down in each mentoring session  as a trained minister and mentee work together to reprogram your mind to think differently. You might say that the SEW approach to a stronghold is to enhance critical thinking capabilities and simple commonsense. Together the mentor and the mentee destroy the strength of the debilitating thought.

RESTORATION OF YOUR SOUL: Renewal is often required when counseling a person who has been abused, raped or has been exposed to a traumatic experience. Becoming whole  is a work of the Holy Spirit and is received as a captive is  delivered from  the inner hurt and pain from past experiences. Then   the Holy Spirit  comes in and heal those wounds. Forgiveness often plays a part in this releasing process. Oftentimes, self-forgiveness needs to be received as the captive may be   holding things against him or herself which must be released. Once truth is known and accepted, freedom is obtained.

EXPULSION OF THE ENEMY Confronting  cosmic entities directly  is where either devils or demons are  driven out of the client by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of the Holy Ghost. After success in the first three stages,  expulsion is often un-necessary. However, in various cases, direct confrontation of the powers of darkness cannot be avoided.  At this stage, the client MUST sign and notarize an informed consent form called the DDF, the Deliverance Disclaimer Form. There are no exceptions. 

Dedicated Ministers who themselves were captives  have been trained to conduct mentoring sessions. Visit our page called SEW Ministers to read a brief bio of 7 of them. I recommend that you give SEW mentor a one month trial and you will not be sorry. To register call 518-477-5759 or send an email to pamsheppard911@yahoo.com.

Come Join the Facebook Group Called SEW

SEW I deals with examining false doctrine. Our coordinator, Minister Lourdes does research to find the most reputable videos.

SEW stands for Spiritual Empowerment Workshop.  The SEW Program takes the major truths and tenets in my 6 books and lays out a unique set of steps to deliverance, recovery, and spiritual growth by comparing spiritual development to the natural growth of fruit and weeds in a field or in the ground. Recorded in Matthew 13, Jesus likened the human spirit as “good ground” when it produces spiritual fruit.

The problem today is that there is very little “good ground.” Too  many seeds of deception have been planted into it by organized religion. Deception planted into wayside, thorny and stony ground has produced false conversions by the millions, perhaps more. The field is your spirit and your soul–the ground. According to Hebrews 12:4, the soul and the spirit is divided by the word of God. SEW focuses on dividing soul from spirit so that spiritual empowerment is possible.

Since demons and religious devils have been periodically planting lies and half-truths, the task of the SEW Program is to un-deceive by examining false doctrines and practices and replacing them with truth. SEW trains its ministers and its trainees to turn over the ground of their souls, weed out their character defects by the power of the cross, and re-plant the ground with the truth. For as the Lord said, once truth is known and received, truth itself is the ultimate deliverer. SEW participants learn how to counsel themselves, toward the end of setting other captives free.

SEW was conceived and became operational in 1995, but SEW has evolved into an endtime goal: the birthing of endtime ministers.  To be an endtime minister does not require that one be a bible scholar or to stand behind a pulpit. My goal is to build confidence in each SEW participant that he or she has the ability ro understand scripture. Our minister’s lives are not characterized by defeat, backsliding and discontent. I welcome those who know that they are imperfect, but who desire to learn how to walk moment by moment in complete dependence on and trust in the Holy Spirit.

Specifically:

  • if you are ready to come to terms with your inadequacies, fears and failures;
  • if you are discontent as a Christian with just surviving;
  • if you are not too proud to admit to being deceived;
  • if you have left or if you are considering leaving the organized church system;
  • if you are willing to try the spirits to see if they be of God

Then we at SEW are looking for YOU!

My training approach fosters independent thinking. Dedicated to truth, I live what I preach.I am non-judgmental, yet I judge or examine all things that are spiritual or supernatural. For 34 years, I have walked by faith. Those who allow me to train them grow rapidly. I equip and challenge SEW ministers and mentees to do the work of the ministry of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. My goal is for each SEW member to be a worker for the Lord and to find their place in His Body. Among my SEW trained ministers are ordinary people who have overcome some extraordinary struggles and challenges. They are trained to lead others to walk through similar situations that they have already overcome.  In SEW, they have learned how to do the Lord’s work HIS way.

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.

 

 

 

Be Set Free From Deliverance Ministries

A message from Pam: BE SET FREE FROM DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES!

What I have been running into is that there are many people out there who need DELIVERANCE FROM DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES—– FOR THERE IS MUCH “QUACKERY AND NONSENSE” GOING ON.  Uninformed deliverance workers may be the root cause of the severity of your present bondage and/or torment.  It is a sin and a shame!!! Deliverance from deliverance  is what you need.

The purpose of ministering deliverance is to set free those who are in bondage. As Jesus was sent forth to preach deliverance to the captives (Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to… preach deliverance to the captives…”), so we are also sent out (John 20:21, “Then said Jesus to them… as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”) to do the works He did (John 14:12, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also…”), and this includes casting out of devils (Matthew 10:8).

The ministry of deliverance is about bringing spiritual victory and freedom to those who are in bondage to devils and demons. It doesn’t matter what you call it (demonized, possessed, oppressed, etc.), if you are in demonic bondage, whether you need to tear down a stronghold, break up a legal ground, cast a demon out, or all three… it’s still deliverance, because it’s setting the captives free. There are 5 important elements of this ministry. I  train my deliverance ministers to be  knowledgeable of all 5 elements so that they are  prepared to address them without hesitation:

Casting Down Imaginations by Receiving Truth: Setting captives free is more about getting them to receive the truth than it is about  commanding demons to come out. This is a grave mistake that causes a lot of people to walk away from a deliverance still in bondage. There is more to it than simply casting out demons. In Luke 9:42, we are told a story of how Jesus not only rebuked demons in a boy who was mentally affected by evil spirits, but also is said to have healed the boy. There is no mention of the boy needing physical healing, but if you look up the word healed in this passage, one of the meanings is, “to free from errors and sins…”, which is likely what Jesus did with the boy, Jesus removed the boy’s legal grounds (sins) and freed him from errors (strongholds). This case of deliverance required more than just rebuking demons!

I myself had a spirit of divination which is a demon.  However, no one ever cast it from me and I never cast it from myself.  I simply received the truth and cancelled my desire to know the future but to simply walk by faith and not by sight. Truth MADE me free.  Crucifying my flesh in the area of desiring supernatural power  to know and predict the future MADE me free.

Tearing down strongholds: Strongholds are people, places and things  that have obtained control in your life, one way or the other and are often set up and nurtured by demons through lies and deception.  For example, if you were raped or had a frightening, unexpected car accident, a stronghold of fear was established IN you by a demon. Demons thrive on strongholds, and use them to hang around a person and torment them. Failing to tear down strongholds can hold up a deliverance and prevent us from walking in complete spiritual freedom.

Removing legal rights: Legal rights are things that give demons permission to enter and remain in our lives. Before demons can often be cast out, it is important to address and remove these legal rights.  Failing to remove legal rights can hold up a deliverance very easily. Demons receive legal rights not so much because of what other’s have done but because of what YOU ignorantly did to invite them in.  You need to understand HOW you invited them in BEFORE an entity is confronted, or the demon will trick you into inviting him back!

Closing Demonic Doorways: Demons enter the soul through 7 doorways or gateways. We determine through a process of inquiry, which doorway is open: the crown, the third eye, the throat, the heart, the navel, the sex organs or the anus. We also determine what demons need to be cast out.

Casting out the demons: This requires two basic elements: knowledge of your authority in Christ Jesus over the powers of the enemy, and faith in that authority. Demons are cast out with a simple spoken command, such as, “I command the spirit of fear to come out in the name of Jesus!” We ask those we work with to complete a deliverance questionnaire called the DAF, Deliverance Assessment Form  that will give us an overview of their background, the bondages they are facing, the root or source of their problem, as well as legal grounds, strongholds and any particular spirits that need to be addressed. Then we begin to work with them to break up any legal grounds, and tear down any strongholds together we  see in your  life and of course, cast out any demons that need to go. If it takes more than 15 minutes, which includes the prayer, to cast out a demon, either there is no demon there or the preliminary work was not completely done.  If you have rolled around the floor in a deliverance session for hours or days, all you did was pick up MORE demons.

   There are also times when even  the most talented people do not know how to move beyond certain obstacles on their own.  Coping skills can become  overwhelmed and faith can be weakened.  This happens to all of us at some point in our spiritual walk.  Yet it takes a special kind of

The first demon I cast out was in 1983.

courage for you to seek  help now.  You don’t have to wait another minute to receive the help you deserve!For years, I provided  face-to-face therapy sessions within my own community.  However, I must say that  the convenience and availability of  phone counseling and deliverance mentoring  is convenient for me also in numerous ways..  Since December 2002, I  have offered online counseling and therapy by phone and have been astounded at the results clients have achieved.  You too can be a true believer in the benefits of phone  counseling and mentoring sessions.

Phone counseling, training or mentoring will help you with your problem and there are many other benefits to consider as well.  So—

About Our Ministry

Welcome, Saints!

Just call me “Pam!”  My primary ministry is to prepare the remnant of God for the end of times. We believe that the people of God shall go through the tribulation.  Our mission is to prepare the saints to overcome. In that regard, our primary objective is to train ministers who have been refined through the fires of God.  Ministers are trained to serve those who have left the organized church in what we call “deliverance mentoring.”

Deliverance Mentoring:

A Unique  Online Alternative to PASTORING

 Deliverance mentoring is for those who have left the church.  If you have been spiritually abused and subsequently damaged, then deliverance mentoring is for YOU.  However, if you have not been damaged while attending the organized church, we are hear to serve as your online ministry.

Pam was a pastor in a well known denomination for 25 years and the Lord led her out in 2004.

 

Q. Who needs  mentoring from SEW Ministers?

Every Christian can use counseling sometime during his/her life. When we become “born again,” we become spiritual.  Spiritual people are open to four forces in the spirit world: God and the devil, angels and demons. Most Christians are not spiritually sensitive enough to know when their spirits are being touched by the poison of the spirits of evil.

Deliverance mentoring sessions are for those Who need no persuasion that demons exist and may be the root cause of their difficulties. Any professing Christian who thinks that they only hear from the Holy Spirit and who gives no credence or vigilance to guard against demonic influence  is already n trouble and will need either a few sessions or deliverance training to learn how to try the spirits  to see if they be of God.

Q. When should I seek mentoring?

Now! Don’t put off your need for help.Time does not heal all wounds. Waiting for life to get better can be harmful. Demons gain territory in your soul through your passivity.

Common reasons for consulting us  include persistent unhappiness, constant tension and anxiety, marital or family conflict, unsatisfying personal relationships, sexual difficulties, spiritual growth needs, fears, persistent worries, depression, and work related issues. A common reason to contact us is when you are tormented with compulsions, hearing voices, victimized by  spiritual abuse from Christians and church leaders and involved in unhealthy soul ties.

Q. Will deliverance mentoring help?

Yes! It will help you take steps that will enable you to:

  • identify what is going wrong
  • understand how and why the enemy sets traps for you
  • locate bondages and strongholds
  • reduce or eliminate the torment
  • recognizing the key issues that have impacted your life
  • preparing yourself for spiritual warfare

Q. What can I expect from my assigned minister?

Expect an understanding, strong, caring person who is also capable, well trained, and professional. Expect to be treated with respect and dignity. Expect me to work with you as well as for you. Most of all, expect truth. I will not lie to you.  Expect to be challenged. Expect to receive answers quickly.

Q. Can I reach my minister in evenings or weekends for emergencies?

When you call us or send a facebook message, you will be answered ASAP, between 11am and midnight, EST. we can usually call you back within a couple of hours, or even sooner. However, at other times we may   not immediately  be available unless previously arranged.


THE GOALS OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING

Your spiritual life is like a journey.  You are on the broad road, and SEW Mentoring   will lead you to the narrow way.  As you journey through the valleys to find your mountaintops, our trained ministers  are with you as a “travel guide” so to speak.  You have become accustomed to travelling alone, and perhaps with out even a map.  You have been walking for a long time and your bondage may have  brought you to a crossroad. 

 The first stage of  basic Christian mentoring is geared toward helping you make your own decisions about how much truth you are willing to receive to obtain freedom. The more you resist truth, the longer you will journey on the broad way, that leads to destruction.

THEOBJECTIVES OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING

We have found that most Christians who need deliverance mentoring are blinded by spiritual ignorance.  Our goal at SEW is to help you obtain clear spiritual vision as we coach and train you to distinguish between good and evil. 

The goal of basic Christian mentoring  is to help you to be engaged, encouraged and enlightened  in your mind. As such, our objective at  is to strengthen your spirit so that you will be able to recognize God’s will and choose it above your own. 

 However, the goal of deliverance mentoring  is to arm you to recognize and effectively deal with  the activity of the enemy in your life.  Deliverance mentoring is broken down into 4 components:

Asking Jesus to “come into your heart, a counterfeit birth, a background in the occult, unconfessed sins, ungodly soul ties, unforgiveness, holding cursed possessions (occult rings, etc.) and so forth can give demons a right to inhabit and torment a person. These legal grounds can be  removed by facing the truth,  repentance, renunciation, extending forgiveness, etc.

The Religious Demon: No Quick Fixes

There are people with religious demons who are tormented either with hearing voices, fears of having committed the unpardonable sin 0r of going to hell  as well constantly are bombarded by blasphemous thoughts. Some can’t even read their bibles out loud or silently. I recall a case where a captive could only read a pocket bible for fear that a demon would use her arm to pound her in the head with a hardcover, and possibly sustain  a concussion.

So it is easy to embrace  a quick-fix  simply to relieve or stop the torment. Most workers  simply attempt to cast out demons  as a means to remove ALL  of a person’s bondages.It never really works. I have found that setting captives free who have a spirit of religiosity  in any form,  involves more than simply driving out the demons.
There are usually various strongholds to be torn down. Since strongholds are incorrect thinking patterns, this is done through the renewing of the captive’s  mind according to the Word of God. As the Lord said “you can’t put new wine into old wineskins or it will break. You can’t put a new patch of cloth on an old garment or it will tear, and you certainly cannot serve 2 masters, or you will hate the deliverance worker and love the preachers and teachers who are a signifant yet hidden cause of your captivity.
The purpose of deliverance is to gain freedom from any hindrances in your life that would keep you from walking in the fullness of God’s plan for your life and your relationship with Him. Remarkably to some, it is often habitual religiosity that is the most difficult stronghold to overcome, even stronger than an addiction to alcohol or drugs because religion and “going to church” isculturally engrained and is therefore considered “the right thing to do.” It takes much time and patience to free captives from religion or a deceptive form of spirituality—a form of godliness that denies the power thereof.

A Deliverance Classic by Pam Sheppard
I cannot work with a “religious captive” who continues to go to church, feed from the tables of either deceived or false prophets, and who is praying to a fake god. Therefore I mandate that while involved in deliverance counseling or mentoring with Sheppard’s Counseling Center, the captive must cease and desist from all religious activity including reading the bible and praying. Old things must pass away so that all things can become new.
