Divination and Witchcraft: An Appeal to Fear!

Writer: Pastor Pam Sheppard

A word from Coach Pam Sheppard

Religious folk go around hollerin “the devil is a liar,” yet the minute he tells them somethin, they believe it. LOL

I think of one guy I once worked with. I cast demons from him on the phone and he was set completely free, immediately. He was also very active in RESCUE. Two weeks later, he committed an act that drew practically all demons back. Well Don sought me again  to expel demons from him.

I refused.  appeal-to-fear

Deliverance is not a game and I am not a game show host. He would have to commit to counseling before I would speak to his demons ever again.

Don did so and for a while, things looked hopeful until after his last  session with me, Don, a mega preacher wannabe, did not like me. The  demons saw their chance, capitalizing on Don’s personal conflict with me.

So a demon told him,” Pam is a witch.”

The next morning, Don reported that he could hear my voice in his head, cussin him out, a thing I was once known to do quite well—back in the day.” So this particular evil spirit  has been watching me for decades, knowing how I used to “get down.”

Here is where I stand on this.

Anybody who comes to me with such a report, I listen to them quite intently. For should I discern even an inkling that he or she believes the demons over me, then I am DONE with him or her on ALL levels.

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 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 five 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.”

Why the Sinners Prayer Led to the Great Falling Away

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

I believe that it was the traditional congregation’s invitation, of “opening the doors of the church,” that  ushered in  countless demons into the visible church system.  The founding fathers of Methodism  instituted a superior practice of placing those who seek to escape the wrath that is to come  on a probationary  membership status. The founding fathers of Methodism were wise enough to not only create a procedure to  ensure a bona fide salvation but also to protect the body from fellowship with unbelievers.  However, over time, the full enforcement of this practice became ineffective, as people were brought into permanent church status without having manifested fruits of salvation.  I personally believe that when converts can demonstrate that they are truly disciples of the Lord, then we can fellowship with them as brethren, and not before. 

       Yet another open door to the religious demon is the coined spiritual phrases.  A  Christian idiom most frequently expressed is  “the Lord led me.”  In a book called “Unholy Devotion,” the author aptly warns of the danger of spiritualizing:

 

   At first glance the phrase sounds quite spiritual, but a close examination of Scripture reveals that it is not always biblical. On several occasions the phrase is used by or to describe false prophets or deceptive people. Jacob deceived his father by spiritualizing issues. Esau, Jacob’s brother, had just gone hunting. Too quickly, it seemed, Jacob, claiming to be Esau, brought the killed game to his father. “How did you find game so quickly?” Isaac asked. Having usurped Esau’s place, Jacob lied to his sick, blind father. But notice Jacob’s very ‘spiritual’ response: ‘The Lord your God gave me success.” (Gen27:20) Jacob was playing dangerous games, spiritualizing in order to manipulate someone he knew would believe such words. Jacob wasn’t a false cult leader or prophet; he was God’s own chosen servant”.

Christians often think that the seeds of heresy are found only in cults and in off-beat sects of Christianity. But John, in his first letter, and Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, reminded us that heretical teachers are often found within the church itself. Jesus notes that the dormant seeds of heresy can be buried in the lawns of the church. In Matthew 13, Jesus tells a parable of the kingdom of heaven: The enemy sowed sees within this kingdom. In our desire to discover and understand the doctrines of cults, we may forget that potential gardens of heresy lie within our own walls. Remember: Sun Myung Moon was raised a Presbyterian; David Berg, founder of the Children of God, was once an Evangelical pastor; Jim Jones pastored a Christian church; many leaders in the People’s Temple and Jonestown were former members of Nazarene, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Methodist and Assemblies of God Churches.” 1 (HL Bussell, pg.111)

 

 

      Besides the altar call, the invitation to Christian discipleship, and the various professions of faith, there are  other  coined religious platitudes and phrases like “Jesus, come into my heart” and “I accepted Jesus into my life”  that  lead to  counterfeit births.   I myself have not been able to find any scriptures in the bible that suggest that we should ask Jesus to come into our hearts.   I believe that when the Lord says that we must abide in Him, He means that we must stay in Him without wavering, in other words,—- to continue, to dwell, to be present, to remain. This is the essence of the Greek word,  that was translated “abide” in John 15.  Accordingly, baring fruit in Christ is a manifestation of a believer continuing and remaining in Him.

Yet Satan’s plot against the organized church  actually took shape  under the ministry of a preacher called Charles Finney.

Charles Finney

Finney was quite a wicked looking man, as you can see the devil all up in his face. The man lived a long time when you consider that in his lifetime, the average live span was  from the late forties to about 65.  Finney lived tobe 83, from 1792-1875. A fiery New York preacher, Finney’s impact on church traditions and practices has been  so profound, that his influence is still spreading globally almost two centuries later.  Finney’s notoriety is that he is the one who brought the entire church the “make a decision for Christ” through repeating the sinners prayer and the altar call.  A practicing freemason for 8 years, Finney eventually disavowed if.  Yet what I have learned about freemasonry is that it is witchcraft. And you just  don’t walk away from witchcraft without a struggle.

Anyway, in a nutshell,  Finney believed that human beings were capable of choosing whether they would be corrupt by nature or redeemed, referring to original sin as an “anti-scriptural and nonsensical dogma”  In clear terms, Finney denied the notion that human beings possess a sinful nature. Therefore, if Adam leads us into sin,  he does so not by our inheriting his guilt and corruption, but by our  following his poor example, this leads logically to the view of Christ as not having died for sins but for some lofty, moralistic reason.

Well, this was the man who started the altar call, invitation to Christian discipleship, “I accept Jesus,” practice that has led to the greatest falling away—the one that Paul himself predicted would transpire.  Consequently, due to Charles Finney, souls have probably not been saved within the organized church system for at least 150 years!!!! This doctrine has  primarily affected the Protestants much  more than the Catholics. Another fallen angel, Mother Mary had a different strategy for THEM. The “make a decision, I accept Jesus gospel has so permeated all Protestant Church tradition, a problem that Baptist preacher Paul Washer is diligently trying to correct, to no avail.  Washer is correct on this score but there  are errors in his teaching as well, which is yet “another story.”  Another practice that Finney started was to use the preacher’s invitation at the end of a sermon to evoke an emotional response, in other words to create a charged up atmosphere to manipulate a false conversion.

What to Know About False Prophets

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

In ministry since 1981, I know a thing or two about false prophets. Besides the TV mega preachers that I watched for years, I also came to know at least 200 ministers while I was pastoring in a well-known denomination. So from my observations, I have designated 3 different types of false prophets. The deceived, the detoured and the diabolical.

There are those false prophets who are really saved but they followed the wrong leaders, and “sucked into themselves” mixed and false doctrines and practices. In short, they heeded and harkened unto the voice of seducing spirits and doctrines of the devil. However, they have not yet departed from the faith. These I call, “the Deceived.” Some of them will be set free. Because of pride, sad to say, others won’t be. Some false prophets would prefer to be caught up in a scandal than to admit that they taught error and thereby “led the people in the wrong direction, away from God, and not toward Him.” They are too spiritually proud to admit that they did not rightly divide the word of God.

Then there is the false prophet who was once used of God mightily, but he or she got deceived by the enemy and fell into disrepute. These I call “the Detoured.” This man or woman becomes a pretender—one who is very dangerous to those who are babes in Christ or who remain carnal Christians. Their followers “stand by their man” even when they should jump ship. The bible has a classic example of how the detoured “Old Prophet” deceived the man of God, resulting in the latter’s death. (I Kings 13)

Then of course, there is the out-and-out pretender who knows that he or she is serving the spirit of the Anti-Christ and everything they do is a masquerade. These I call “the Diabolical.” They are imposters, planted in among Christians to willfully bring confusion that will lead to destruction.

Every false prophet type— whether the Deceived, the Detoured, and the Diabolical— is equally dangerous. Why? Because they can leave a huge trail of victims.  I am humbled and thankful that although I was on the road to becoming a false prophet, the Holy Ghost jerked my chain, then cut it and broke it.  When  I was deceived by charismatic teachings,” God blessed me by closing doors and blocking me from spreading error. Even though I once had the heart, the skill and the desire of a mega preacher, God purposefully would not allow me to become a popular celebrity.. When a door opened, the Holy Ghost closed it and blocked my way through it. Moreover, among those that I have pastored, even though I personally believed some mixed doctrines, I didn’t teach them to those who allowed me to lead them. So praise God, after 36 years as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have no victims.

For example, I spoke in tongues, but I didn’t teach my followers to do so. I tithed, but I did not preach a “sow a seed,” prosperity gospel. In fact, I was completely self-sustaining. I gave back my church salary in the form of tithes and offerings to the churches that I pastored. When I practiced healing and the laying on of hands, I never told anyone to stop taking their medicine and “walk by faith.” I primarily preached the cross, sin, repentance, rebirth and the resurrection. But make NO MISTAKE. The false prophets of all 3 varieties:— the deceived, the detoured and the diabolical— are equally dangerous! Your prayers for them to repent may NOT prevail. And why not?

In order to repent, the false prophet has to do more than apologize and ask for forgiveness from those he has abused and deceived. If he has been made rich off of the backs of poor people by preaching the prosperity gospel, then God will require him or her to “give back” all of that money to the poor. Not too many false prophets are willing to give up those jet planes, million dollar homes and those Bentleys. Even the false prophets who are NOT mega, many of them have practiced the lie for so long, that it is practically impossible to receive the truth and act on it. Far too many have made “ministry” their career and not their calling.

Ask the Apostle Paul. He maintained as a tent maker. He would not allow any of the churches that he set up to totally provide his livelihood. That is why he could write, “whether abased or exalted, I can do ALL things 4 through Christ who strengthens me.” In other words, JUST SO YOU KNOW, I am not dependent upon YOU to live and to serve my God. When a false prophet’s livelihood is intricately tied to church dollars and resources, he or she is captive to a self-made trap that cannot be escaped from without God’s help. Actually, some false prophets have to be stripped naked to find God again, if they ever knew Him. So if you really think a particular false prophet is deceived, perhaps detoured but not diabolical, then your prayer should be “Lord, strip him.”

A word of caution. The religious demon assigned to me tried to set me up to become  a false prophet.  In several dreams, he showed me standing before huge audiences, walking up and down across a platform with my bible in my hand, preaching and teaching.  He even showed me pastoring a church of about 10,000 people.  Because I sought after the power to slay in the spirit, after 10 years of seeking, I got it. I could wave my hand, and certain ones would fall out, unconscious.  However, I began to question this power because I noticed that the ones in my congregation who fell out the most, were also those who could not STAND for the Lord, relapsing or backsliding constantly.  So I said to myself, “Pam, there is something wrong with this so-called gift. This cannot be from the Holy Ghost!” Once I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to “show me  the darkness,” I got quite the wake-up call that revealed that  the mega preacher phenomena of today is NOT of the Lord.  It is a combination of human charisma, “anointed” by the enemy’s power. My testimony is in “Come Out of Her God’s People.”

So if you are on that road, you need to get off, and get off with a quickness! If you have been burned by a false prophet, there is help.  Call 1-888-818-1117

Why Reincarnation?

Pastor Pam Sheppard wrote:

reincarnation

Reincarnation was once a major component of my belief system when I was a New Age atheist. However once I became born again 40 years ago, it was the easiest false teaching to eliminate. Why? Because it nullifies the Lord’s purpose for His sacrifice for sin in His death on the cross. For why become sin for each human being if we all have additional lives available to correct past life karma. For as the bible says, it is appointed to each man ONCE to die, and then the judgment.

I watched the 1977 movie called Audrey Rose, a movie that strongly supports reincarnation. I missed this one as I was born again that very year. So watching this movie in 2013 was quite revealing. For it is obvious that Satan is in control of Hollywood to send his own subliminal messages.

The setting for the movie is New York City in the 70’s. Janice and Bill Templeton are Park Avenue types, living in a splendid apartment bigger than most houses, with thousands of dollars of art work on the ceilings. They have an 11-year-old daughter named Ivy who is a happy, gregarious child until she starts to have these trance like fits, where it looks like she is trying to escape from a fire.

In the meantime, Elliot Hoover makes contact with the Templeton’s about Ivy, telling them of how his four-year old daughter died in a car crash, where she was seen banging on the car windows screaming, surrounded by flames, shortly before the car her mother was driving, exploded, killing them both. Interestingly enough, this incident occurred just a few hours on the same day that Ivy was born. After the death of Audrey, Elliot reports that famous psychics revealed to him that Ivy is the reincarnation of his daughter Audrey. As confirmation, the psychics accurately described the lush penthouse apartment in great detail, including the fine art on the ceilings.

As the story unfolds, the Templeton’s take Elliot to court, accusing him of kidnapping Ivy. The defense lawyer took the position of defending reincarnation to prove that Elliot was correct about Ivy being the reincarnation of his daughter, Audrey Rose. At the trial, a hypnotist was brought in to perform a past-life regression on Ivy. It worked, but it got out of hand. Ivy became Audrey and the trauma of re-experiencing the fire was too great and Ivy died because the hypnotist did not call the girl by the name of Audrey. He kept saying “Ivy.”

I did some googling today and discovered some interesting information about the author of the book. In “the Case For Reincarnation,” by Joe Fisher, the screenplay “Audrey Rose” was inspired by an actual incident in the author’s life. The author heard ragtime piano being played by his six-year-old son who never had a music lesson. The boy told his father that his fingers were touching the keys on their own. This experience was the catalyst that directed the author’s thoughts toward the possibility of reincarnation.

I am sure that many were awed by this movie and some even became believers in reincarnation as a result of watching it. Yet there is a simple explanation. If the case of Audrey Rose had been true and not fiction, here is how I would explain it.

First of all, even bona-fide psychic mediums or channels receive information from demons. So Elliot was deceived by them to believe on reincarnation. The demons know how his daughter died. They saw it and probably arranged and even caused the car accident that killed his family in the first place. They worked on his emotions, causing him to change his belief system and to appear and act “strange.” They set him up to find Ivy by using the psychics.

Somehow, Ivy’s chakras were opened. When the kundalini energy is released and the person enters an altered state through dreaming, very often the person feels like he or she is burning from within. When the hypnotist took Ivy into a much deeper altered state, as the fire sensation intensified, so did the terror and so Ivy died of intense fear. Her heart stopped.

In this end time season, the enemy needs every human being’s chakras to be opened so that the Antichrist can perpetuate the biggest spiritual fraud—–EVER!!!!

The Death of Whitney Houston and the Plagues of Revelation 18:4

Wenona Russ is the first new author published by Pam Sheppard Publishing, the author of the e-book, “the Making of a False Prophet.”

In this video, Wenona  makes some salient comments relative to the failure of the institutional church to conduct successful interventions with its troubled and addicted flock.

However, I have a different take on the issue.  In my book, “Come Out of Her God’s People,” you will find these words:

                                                                                                       

There Are Plagues in the Institutional Church

“It is ironic to note that the very conditions conducive to the pervasive emergence of the plagues of the organized church thrive in Her ability to weaken, distort, mis-apply, and discard Her primary reason for existing, namely the revelation f both the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” Beside preaching the gospel so that the Holy Ghost can convict nd convert, the most important responsibility of the church of Jesus Christ is to tend the sheep.  Jesus was very particular about the mandate of safety and protection.” 

Whitney’s church gave her a memorable “going home” service, yet they failed miserably to protect one of their own from the evil music industry whose favor they  flagrantly seek, evidenced by the exaltation of worldly superstars at the center stage of their “holy” place.  The backlash?  Whitney drowns in a bathtub.

 Her death may appear to be an accident.  On the surface, it seems so.  The spiritual truth is  that Whitney’s death is a plague upon the church because they have kept  one foot in the “house of God” and the other foot— in the world.

  The wages of sin is death.  Not so much the death of a phenomenal icon, but the death of the church who  poorly raised  her. Surely the African-American church adored  Whitney Houston . Nevertheless.  out of a lust to bask in her superstardom, churchfolk  could  not protect her.

MODERN DAY PROPHETS

Are there any modern day prophets?

To answer that question  one of the signs that we are living in the last days is the emergence of various internet watchmen. The prophets of old were watchmen. They warned God’s people about “what’s goin on” in the religious world. Some–not all–of these websites are inspired by present day prophets.

Their tools are different. All prophets SPEAK because they are compelled by God to do so. Today, the watchman’s voice is heard predominately through the written word, while others may speak out in a video. Some emphasize informing the people about specific false prophets and ministries. That is an exhaustive task that requires a 24/7 devotion, because there are so many false prophets and ministries to expose. Since these prophetic web ministries  only target high-profile people and their false practices,  they are hindered by not covering other ministries that are equally  noteworthy but only known locally.

Much falls between the cracks.

I used to be a watchman on the web exposing false prophets with a website that I have since closed down called “Beware Christian”. I had to literally DROP IT, because it devoured  too much of my time and I found it counterproductive FOR ME as an author, a counselor and a trainer of ministers.  Nevertheless, I thank God for prophetic, watchman type ministries of Midnight Cry, Straight is the Way, Deception in the Church,Equip, Paw Creek and others. I now refer seekers to them and I do “another thing.”

To really understand the mission of modern-day prophets, we need to look at the new testament. The prophet that stands out in the gospel days of the Lord’s own ministry  is John the Baptist. The Lord said that John the Baptist is the greatest of ALL prophets, so we need to look at John’s ministry rather closely. John’s prophetic ministry was essentially that he prepared the people of his day for the FIRST coming of the Lord by preaching repentance. John the Baptist did not have the gift of predicting the future as did the Apostle John. It should be noted that when Jesus called John the Baptist the greatest prophet, the Apostle John was not yet so anointed as a prophet.

However, together, I believe that  BOTH Johns are a composite template of a present day prophet. A present day prophet is one who:

  • Like the Baptist, prepares the last generations for the SECOND coming of the Lord
  • by preaching repentance.  The job is now complicated by the fact that thanks to the organized church and it easy believism, I accept Jesus into my heart, sinner’s prayer practices, so many believe that they are saved but the one who they “accepted” is the fake Jesus, Jesus Sananda Immanuel.
  • Like the Apostle, present day prophets will be given supernatural predictions that are specific to the end time survival of the elect of God.For example, when we cannot buy and sell, end time prophets will be able to multiply “the loaves and the fishes” and bring the water from the rocks as did Moses—AS THE HOLY GHOST LEADS!
  • During the reign of the Anti-Christ, end time prophets will move in the supernatural gifts of the Spirit because miracles, healings, and supernatural power will be needed in order for God’s people to survive, a power similar to that of Moses ashe brought God’s people out of the bondage of Egypt. Casting out of demons will be one of the prophet’s many supernatural giftings not according to the prophet’s will, but at the will and command of the Holy Ghost.

Spiritual discernment will be essential to distinguish between a false and a true prophet for both shall have supernatural powers. To be prepared and to learn how to try the spirits to see if they be of God, you need “the New Idolatry.”  Here is a short quote:

“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 hype masters”— that have no other message but one that caters to the flesh.  Like the occult card layers, the divination of old has progressively worsened in our time because the church community is flooded with countless pseudo-prophets as it sweeps across worldwide Christendom.  As they prophesy presumptuously in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, declaring things that the Lord has NOT spoken to them, is comparable to New Age divination.  As they boldly and confidently declare “thus saith the Lord,” fallen religious angels are leading God’s people away from the truth. (pg 35)

 

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.

WATCH OUT FOR THE "I HAVE A WORD FROM THE LORD FOR YOU " FOLK!

THE ENEMY USES "WELL MEANERS"AND "DO GOODERS" TO SEND YOU EVIL!

 

DID “THUS SAITH THE LORD?”

 

Only the Holy Ghost knows how many in Christiandom who claim to be prophets by declaring , “thus saith the Lord,” or “God told me,” or “I was led in the spirit”—are really the messengers of Satan sent to control your life in God. Today, in the 21st century, churches are filled with soothsayers and charismatic hype masters whose message from the pulpit is merely a gratification of the flesh. There is aseductive spirit of divination sweeping across churches of all persuasions, seeking to control the lives of the un-suspecting. Laityleaders serve as divination foot-soldiers,forearmed “with a word” to maintain the power and authority of those in the pulpits. Demons help out also as they whisper into congregant’s ears, “give a $1000 dollars.”

 I can recall that one of my associates, Minister Kellie,  completely delivered depression  in record time by the power of God, was approached by a member of her former church. Although Kellie’s  progress is sheerly remarkable, the former church member approached her with a “thus saith the Lord.” “I had a vision of you and I saw you have a python snake attached to your spirit.Are you okay? Since you left the church, we’ve all had concerns about you. We’ve all been praying for your return to the fold.”

 In one of our mentoring telephone  conversations, Kellie casually mentioned this but I could tell that she was shaken by it. I yelled through the telephone “NO! STOP. THAT WORD CAME FROM THE HEART OF A DEMON ASSIGNED TO STEAL YOUR RECOVERY FROM YOU! DO NOT RECEIVE IT!!!!”

 Certainly, professing Christians without knowledge may seem to have good intentions.Yet, when you find yourself in bondage to what they claim God has said about you to them, what does it matter whether they had either good or bad intentions??? The results are the same.Your spirit has been penetrated and the enemy has successfully planted his desires into YOUR spirit to cause you confusion and ultimate harm!!!!

 Take it from someone who knows. I am well insulated by God from face to face contact with people who allow demons to use them as messengers of Satan to control my life . I have even learned how to block out my dreams. So when the enemy cannot “reach me,” he’ll make a phone call, send a facebook message or send an email.

 Now I know that’s right!

10/25/11 "THIRTY YEARS IN MINISTRY!"

I have received “thus saith the Lords” in emails and over the telephone on quite a few occasions. Now when I personally receive “a word” about someone else, I have learned to “keep my mouth shut.” Control freaks can’t do this. They are under too much compulsion to blurt out knowledge obtained by supernatural means to prove that “they are anointed of God.”

 Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. Then he will use your self induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring his plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy. You see, it is easier  “do what they do,” with your cooperation and consent. In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits.

Recently,someone sent me a message. He had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me because of my website and that they wereattempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold him. Wouldn’t make any sense cause the damage was already done. Coincidence or not, at that very moment,I was involved in a situation with someone who had “witchcraft in her background.” So of course, my eyebrow was raised but I didn’tpanic. I was just extra careful and observant.

 The thing to do is to “watch and pray.”

 Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone that you care about.Pray and rest in God. If God showed him  that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling him  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.”

 Therefore, when someone comes to you with a “thus saith the Lord” and it does not compute with you, you must become verbally aggressive.I do it regularly. People may think that I am crazy but I am quick to get animated and boldly declare, “no. I rebuke that. I don’t receive that.”

 Sometimes I get worst and like the Lord, I’ll speak directly to that demon and say “get thee behind me.” I don’t care what people think. It is too important that I guard my spirit.

 YOU MUST DO THE SAME!

 If you have left the church or you are considering leaving, perhaps you would like to be assigned one of our ministers to mentor you.  If so, give us a call at 518-477-5759

 

 

HOW TO RECOGNIZE A FALSE PROPHET

 

Taken from a website called Pulpit Pimps

 

 With 30 years in ministry under my belt, I know a thing or two about false prophets. Besides the TV mega preachers that Iwatched for years, I also came to know at least 200 ministers while I was pastoring in a well known denomination. So from my observations, I have designated 3 different types of false prophets. The deceived, the detoured and the diabolical.

 There are those false prophets who are really saved but they followed the wrong leaders, and “sucked into themselves” mixed and false doctrines and practices. In short, they heeded and harkened unto the voice of seducing spirits and doctrines of the devil. However, they have not yet departed from the faith. These I call, “the Deceived.” Some of them will be set free. Because of pride, sad to say, others won’t be. Some false prophets would prefer to be caught up in a scandal than to admit that they taught error and thereby “led the people in the wrong direction, away from God, and not toward Him.” They are too spiritually proud to admit that they did not rightly divide the word of God.

Then there is the false prophet who was once used of God mightily, but he or she got deceived by the enemy and fell into disrepute. These I call “the Detoured.” This man or woman becomes a pretender—one who is very dangerous to those who are babes in Christ or who remain carnal Christians. Their followers “stand by their man” even when they should jump ship. The bible has a classic example of how the detoured “Old Prophet” deceived the man of God, resulting in the latter’s death. (I Kings 13)

Then of course, there is the out and out pretender who knows that he or she is serving the spirit of the Anti- Christ and everything they do is a masquerade. These I call “the Diabolical.” They are imposters, planted in among Christians to willfully bring confusion that will lead to destruction.

Every false prophet type— whether the Deceived, the Detoured, and the Diabolical— is equally dangerous. Why? Because they can leave a huge trail of victims.  I am humbled and thankful that although I was on the road to becoming a false prophet, the Holy Ghost jerked my chain, then cut it and broke it.  When  I was deceived by charismatic teachings,” God blessed me by closing doors and blocking me from spreading error. Even though I once had the heart, the skill and the desire of a mega preacher, God purposefully would not allow me to become a popular celebrity.. When a door opened, the Holy Ghost closed it and blocked my way through it. Moreover, among those that I have pastored, even though I personally believed some mixed doctrines, I didn’t teach them to those who allowed me to lead them. So praise God, after 30 years as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have no victims.

For example, I spoke in tongues, but I didn’t teach my followers to do so. I tithed, but I did not preach a “sow a seed,” prosperity gospel. In fact, I was completely self sustaining. I gave back my church salary in the form of tithes and offerings to the churches that I pastored. When I practiced healing and the laying on of hands, I never told anyone to stop taking their medicine and “walk by faith.” I primarily preached the cross, sin, repentance, rebirth and the resurrection. But make NO MISTAKE. The false prophets of all 3 varieties:— the deceived, the detoured and the diabolical— are equally dangerous! Your prayers for them to repent may NOT prevail. And why not?

In order to repent, the false prophet has to do more than apologize and ask for forgiveness from those he has abused and deceived. If he has been made rich off of the backs of poor people by preaching the prosperity gospel, then God will require him or her to “give back” all of that money to the poor. Not too many false prophets are willing to give up those jet planes, million dollar homes and those Bentleys. Even the false prophets who are NOT mega, many of them have practiced the lie for so long, that it is practically impossible to receive the truth and act on it. Far too many have made “ministry” their career and not their calling.

Ask the Apostle Paul. He maintained as a tentmaker. He would not allow any of the churches that he set up to totally provide his livelihood. That is why he could write, “whether abased or exalted, I can do ALL things 4 through Christ who strengthens me.” In other words, JUST SO YOU KNOW, I am not dependent upon YOU to live and to serve my God. When a false prophet’s livelihood is intricately tied to church dollars and resources, he or she is captive to a self made trap that cannot be escaped from without God’s help. Actually, some false prophets have to be stripped naked to find God again, if they ever knew Him. So if you really think a particular false prophet is deceived, perhaps detoured but not diabolical, then your prayer should be “Lord, strip him.”

A word of caution. The religious demon assigned to me tried to set me up to become  a false prophet.  In several dreams, he showed me standing before huge audiences, walking up and down across a platform with my bible in my hand, preaching and teaching.  He even showed me pastoring a church of about 10,000 people.  Because I sought after the power to slay in the spirit, after 10 years of seeking, I got it. I could wave my hand, and certain ones would fall out, unconscious.  However, I began to question this power because I noticed that the ones in my congregation who fell out the most, were also those who could not STAND for the Lord, relapsing or backsliding constantly.  So I said to myself, “Pam, there is something wrong with this so-called gift. This cannot be from the Holy Ghost!”  Once I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to “show me the darkness,” I got quite the wakeup call that revealed that  the mega preacher phenomena of today is NOT of the Lord.  It is a combination of human charisma, “anointed” by the enemy’s power.

HOW THE ENEMY DECEIVES BY USING "GOOD" PEOPLE

 

LET THE GOOD SPEAK EVIL

In 1988, Geraldo Rivera televised a program that focused on Christian Cults, with the subtitle “Zombies for Christ.” Interviews are held with people who underwent deprogramming from the influence of charismatic, fundamentalist leaders and churches. The major problem that I had with this process, is that those who are doing the “deprogramming” are not born again Christians themselves, and may be deprogramming people completely away from Jesus, which of course is the subtle, underhanded strategy of the devil, using professing Christians against themselves. Worst yet is that they are programming people toward the fake Jesus by telling them to “ask Jesus to come into your hearts.”

 People are watching Christian television and reading Christian books, who themselves need to be deprogrammed from error that is causing them to be vulnerable to demonic oppression of a very serious nature. In fact, when I have tried to counsel those who have come to me to seek deliverance from the torment of demons, the mixture and error in their spiritual foundation is extremely deep.  Therefore,  deliverance is severely hindered by the amount of error that these captives have anchored their faith to by watching Christian television or reading the books of various mega preachers.

 The problem of today is similar to what Rivera explored in 1988.  Evil spirits know it is fruitless to urge the righteous toward sins of the flesh, so demons use another tactic called DECEPTION. The Satanic strategy is planned in the form of teachings and doctrines that appear “good”. The biggest deception is to receive counsel solely based upon the godly life and character of the counselor or teacher. Most false prophets are clean living, righteous, upstanding folk.  So to receive their teachings based on their “good character” is what the enemy is after.

 Therefore, it is important for you to know that every thing that the enemy does is not always evil as he works under the cover of light. So the strategy of deception is to get the righteous or good person to accept a wrong idea and then to pass it off to others “as truth.”

 Certainly, the bible   should be the foundation of every Christian. However, it is important to point out that scripture is also  used as the basis of false teaching.  The enemy  has  very skillfully woven into a web certain scriptures  that will ultimately entrap a child of God like the prosperity gospel, praying in the spirit, tongues, slain in the spirit—I could go on and on!. With each false doctrine and practice, the method is to pull single texts out of their original context. In my work with  professing Christians in torment or bondage, the following scripture from the book of James rings true:

WE ARE DECEIVED BY SEEMING TO BE RELIGIOUS, WHEN AN UNBRIDLED TONGUE REVEALS OUR TRUE CONDITION.(James1:26)

I train ministers in our deliverance mentoring program to   listen to the unbridled tongue so as to expose the nature of the deception. Also, Paul wrote to Christians that we are deceived when we think ourselves to be wise with the wisdom of this world.(I Corinthians 3:15) Deliverance Mentoring  is certaining a humbling process, for very often, Christians in torment must resist the devil by admitting that they have been deceived not only by well meaning Christian teachers, family and friends, but also by their own heart. (Jer 17:9, Isaiah 64:20)

Trained ministers serve as mentors to those who have left the organized church.

 At Sheppard’s Counseling Center, we de-program the deceived through our deliverance mentoring program. Trained online ministers are available.  www.pamsheppard.com/online_ministers_available
