Maitreya and Sananda as the Anti-Christ; and the False Prophet

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

I believe the Fake Jesus is my worst written book but it is my most important book.  

I evaluate the book as the worst written of the 8 of them, simply because it was conceived and produced at a time when I was not sufficiently bold enough to expose my thought beyond a few folk, the fact that I suspected  that the church has already been infiltrated by fallen angels.  Generally  a consummate professional,  I was once concerned that  I would be called a conspiracy theory quack.  Therefore I wrote it in the third person, like I was talking about someone other than me., writing  “we” instead of “I”.

For some of you, after you read the Fake Jesus,  I suspect that you will be as astonished as even I was where the institutional church is concerned.  For as I reviewed the book I had written,  I realized that I was not personally exempt from its findings, particularly as a pastor. For I realized that even the church I founded was connected to the same religious system and consequently a fallen angel was assigned to MY church as well as all others.

I started writing the book In 2007. Wow!  That was 10 years ago !!!  In a decade, my belief in a fallen angel takeover of the global church is even stronger than it was when I collected my research.  Anyway, by 2008, I shut down my church and I buried her name.  Healing Waters: a name given to me by a fallen angel in the mouth of a nine-year old girl, Leandra in 1983. I uncovered in my research that Healing Waters is a by word for the fallen angel  Maitreya !!!!

There are about 50-200 Ascended masters of different ranks. The Fake Jesus is among the top five. Maitreya, Sananda, Mother Mary, St. Germaine and Ashtar. Under their command are other fallen angels who are in charge of the churches.

Maitreya is pinpointed as the expected leader whom the new age occult world is waiting for in these times with his forerunner being Benjamin Creme. As described by Crème, Maitreya” essence and his mission to earth is akin to the biblical Antichrist.  Maitreya is also the  unseen father of the Eastern religions.  The climax  of this book is its clear understanding and interpretation to be seriously aware what Benjamin Creme claims Maitreya will perform by miracles and healings around the world, to draw followers who will believe that he is God Almighty. The book reveals how and why the great hoax will deceive and disciple many by the power of the altered state.

“The Fake Jesus” also reveals a trick to be enacted upon the entire world that will cause the uninformed to believe  that Maitreya is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. In other words. GOD! Maitreya is the fallen angel who will possess a world leader aka the Antichrist while Sananda will be in  control of the false prophet.

The rest of the book reveals the history of how the enemy pulled it off in the churches, including Sananda’s work with the Protestants and Mother Mary’s work with the Catholics.

Once I penned  the next  book, the  New Idolatry, I find that I have fully embraced my bold character, since I am  no longer concerned at all whether I am thought to be a quack. I consider  The New Idolatry as a sequel to the Fake Jesus.

There are some additional interesting  tidbits about the Fake Jesus. The book was typed on a computer and completed in 2007.  While doing the final reading, I noticed that the word “angel” had been  removed from the entire book.  Considering that the word was repeated at least 500 times, I had to type each word in each sentence  manually.  Needless to say, I missed a handful of replacements.  So if you are reading and you come across  the word “fallen” without anything after it, just add in “angel” into your mind  as you read.

Another interesting aside is that the fallen angels have actually responded to the book quite vigorously, vehemently expressing how much they hate it.  In one instance fallen angels, entered into an acquaintance and sent me “their” book review by email and another time, a fallen angel caused a reader to throw the book into the next room while she was reading it. Here are a couple of  reviews from humans, not under the influence of evil spirits: :

I am currently reading The Church of the End time Zombies. I have read The Fake Jesus. In the beginning I knew something wasn’t quite right with the church but I was in denial thinking how could I and everyone else be wrong. But the Fake Jesus gives history and insight on how deceived we all have been. Pam just didn’t come out of the church to invent these things she tested the spirits and took time to research the matter. She has done all of the work for us. Pam herself will tell you to ask God to reveal the truth. I did just that and found that she is a true woman of God. I also counsel with Pam once a week. She is patient yet real but don’t get it twisted for a moment she also commands her respect but in a loving way. The stuff I have learned from counseling, her videos and books have been immeasurable. I have learned more in these last few months than I have attending years in the church.

I have read Pam Sheppard’s books, “The New Idolatry”, “The Fake Jesus”. I have also purchased the Church of the End-Time Zombies. Her teachings have helped me a lot. The Fake Jesus explains really well how evil spirits are deceiving Christians in the church. The New Idolatry is a good book that reveals the dangers of the occult and how demons, religious demons, fallen angels, Satan and his cohorts are spreading their agenda, masquerading in many ways (i.e yoga gods). I have also joined her rescue online ministry group. I am glad that I did. The problems I was experiencing, the church was not able to help me, in fact my situation just got worse. Today I am doing much better, and have been armored with so much truth and strength. I recommend that anyone who feels that something is not right in the church, experiencing anything strange, supernatural, then read Pam Sheppard’s books and contact her for further help if needed. There are not too many people who are truly born again in Jesus Christ but Pam Sheppard is one of them, to those that God is un-deceiving, it will be easy for you to tell.

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

The Dangers of Not Being THANKFUL

When we were all little kids, (hopefully) our parents taught us to say ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you.’

It was taught to us as a part of being mannerable.  It’s just good social etiquette to say ‘Thank you’ after someone has done soemething for you or given something to you.

But being thankful doesn’t just stop there…at good manners.  Being thankful is a biblical principle that protects us from spiritual deceit, corruption and error.

Being thankful to God does…

I want you to read Romans 1.  Study it.  Read it again.  As I read it again this morning, the scriptures seemed to jump out from the page at me…

Romans 1:17

The Just shall live by FAITH….

If the just lives by faith, this means that they do NOT worry or fret over how their bills are going to get paid.  They do NOT covet after the riches of another.  They don’t work 8 jobs to keep up with the Joneses.  They may have a job, or they may not…but one thing IS for sure…they live BY FAITH.

If more people understood that biblical principle, then the error of the prosperity doctrine would spread no further.  Replete among the followers and purveyors of the prosperity message are people who simply LACK FAITH IN GOD.  They covet after the riches and possessions of another.  And they are NOT thankful FOR WHAT THEY HAVE!

They are greedy.  Never satisfied…and certainly not thankful.  Not to God…and probably not to their fellow man, either.

There is a danger in not being thankful.  It’s not just it offends God.  But being unthankful is breeding ground for covetousness and seducing spirits to come in and cause one to err ‘from the faith.’

When we begin to trust in the arm of flesh-ours or anyone else’s-to provide for our needs, instead trusting God implicitly, then we start placing debt, lack, poverty and our not having certain things (even if those things are necessities) on a pedestal, of sorts.  The debt, the lack, the poverty…they all become IDOLS in our lives…that replace the POWER and PROVISION OF GOD.  We place pre-eminence on our lack instead of faith in our God to provide EVERY NEED that we have…

Once this happens, a domino effect takes place.  What starts out as idolatry and lack of faith starts to grow into not SEEING GOD as God in our lives.

Romans 1:21-23

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were THANKFUL; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

When we place our lack, debt, poverty and the such above God in our lives, that thing has become an idol in our lives.  God is taken off the throne and our lack, debt, poverty takes its place.  And how do we worship the gods of lack, debt, and poverty?

By trusting in the arm of FLESH to provide.  By making up doctrines and teachings that will help us feel ’empowered’ to prosper.  Admit it: there is a certain helplessness that comes with lack.  Most people HATE it.  And will do ANYTHING to avoid feeling helpless.

The downfall of many a man has been that the enemy KNOWS that it is in the innate nature of a man to provide for his family.  When this ability is hindered or taken away, this emasculates the man…and many men will do just about anything to provide for their families.

Many of the mega preachers that are so heavily-revered sold out to the god of mammon…they began ‘ministry’ in lack, debt, poverty. Listen to their testimonies of being in poverty.  Shaking roaches out of their clothes.  Living in houses with the utilities cut off.  Wearing the same clothes to church over and over again.  Being homeless.

And now they are flying in private jets and living in homes that most would only dream of!

But there was a price that was paid for that fortune, and it wasn’t merely the check they signed over to the realtor when they bought the homes.

The very gospel that they now preach and teach is tainted with error.  It makes gods out of temporary circumstances and gets people to trust in formulas and methods and NOT in God.

Look what happens when we do that:

Romans 1:24-25

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

When we start trusting in the arm of flesh and NOT in God, then we start worshipping just that….FLESH.

When you finish reading the first chapter of Romans, you will see that the rise in sexual (and spiritual) perversion has its roots in not recognizing God as God, and NOT BEING THANKFUL.

This is the chapter that goes into the rampant homosexuality and lesbianism that is promised in these times.

And to imagine—it all began with just not being thankful!

The old song used to go like this:

“Count your blessings, name them one by one, count your blessings, see what the Lord has done!  Count your blessings, name them one by one….Count your many blessings!  See what the Lord has done!”

There IS a danger in NOT being thankful.

The enemy knows in these uncertain (economic) times that many will be vulnerable to fall prey to error, particularly in this area.  Falling for the prosperity message keeps one in a constant state of covetousness, all in the guise of appearing to walk in faith for the things that you don’t have…all the while you are missing the blessing of enjoying what you DO have.

God has been really, really good to America.  We need not forget that….what does the Word say?

Psalm 9:17
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

Premature Death: Another Plague of the Institutional Church

This is Joy Mifflin.  She was a popular ‘evangelist’ who passed on yesterday of cancer.

This video was taken in 2010.

Mifflin had just tweeted at the beginning of October encouraging many to tune into the 2012 Presidential Debates, and sending her love to her ‘pastor,’ Pastor Sheryl Brady from the Jakes Affiliation.

A little over a month later, Joy was on life support/respirator, and taken off…only to die on November 9.  She was 33 years old.

She lost a 7 year battle to breast cancer.

Sobering.

Prayer requests were petitioned on her behalf as she lay on life support the day before she passed, asking God to heal and restore her.

This reminds me of another story of a young woman who received ‘prayer’ for healing and died soon thereafter…the late wife of gospel artist Marvin Sapp, Dr. MaLinda Sapp.

After her husband requested around-the-clock prayer for his wife, who was battling colon cancer, she succumbed in September 2010 to the debilitating disease.

A few weeks before in August 2010, Marvin Sapp had requested prayer for MaLinda, who was diagnosed with colon cancer the year before but was declared ‘cancer-free’ by doctors earlier that year.  Apparently, the cancer had come back.

MaLinda died at 45 years old.

Dontavies Boatwright was a finalist on the popular gospel contest show, Sunday’s Best. He went on to record an album, become a radio announcer, and preached at several venues.  He died of a heart attack yesterday as well, at the age of 33.

(I want yall to notice that he was an avid tongue speaker in the above video)

And probably the most well-known of these is the late David Wilkerson.  One of the TRUE endtime prophets of this age.

In April 2011, David Wilkerson and his wife Gwen were involved in a car accident that claimed David’s life first.

Gwen would die a little over a year later in July of this year, presumably from grief and injuries she sustained in the car crash with a tractor trailer that claimed the life of her beloved husband of 58 years.  She was 81….he was 79.

David Wilkerson was the pastor of Times Square Church, the founder of Teen Challenge Ministry and author of ‘The Cross and The Switchblade.’

Another gospel couple who died in like manner as the Wilkersons are the Wrights, the late gospel artist Timothy Wright and his wife Betty and his 14 year old grandson, D.J.

The family was driving home when they were hit head on by a drunk driver.  The crash killed Betty, 58, and D.J. instantly.

Timothy Wright died of his injuries (and probably grief) almost a year later in 2009.  He was 61 years old.

(I was particularly fond of Wright’s music, and was saddened to hear of his untimely death and that of his family….)

Rev. Timothy Wright and wife Betty
D.J. Wright, Grandson

I can go on and on….we hear stories of premature death (in the church setting) ALL the time.

No one bothers to say anything about it and automatically conclude that ALL PREMATURE death(s) in the church are the will of God.  We religiously say that it is God’s business who He ‘decides to take home’ and when.

And while I can wholeheartedly agree that only God knows when our time is up, NO ONE can make me believe that EVERY death is God’s will.

There is something going on here!

I want to share something with you that my mentor, Pamela Sheppard, made me realize.

The religious demon LOVES to mock those who are within its ‘jurisdiction,’ if you will.

The religious demon loves to cause ‘accidents,’ diseases, and the such that will take out REAL believers.

There are some things that are NOT supposed to happen.  Like that guy in Creflo’s church who was praying at the altar and was gunned down!

How can ANYONE make that right?  How can anyone explain that away, saying it was the ‘will of God’ for this man to be shot to death…WHILE HE WAS PRAYING?  TO OUR GOD????

That makes absolutely NO sense to me!

Gregory McDowell

39 year old McDowell took 5 bullets while praying to God….while sitting in a church!  He was in the production department and in maintenance at famous megachurch World Changers International of College Park, GA, pastored by Creflo Dollar.  The shooter was a former maintenance worker of WCCI.  There is still no motive for the shooting at this time.

Does anyone else here see a trend?

It seems to me that premature death is fast becoming yet another plague that is plaguing the organized church, just like premature death took the firstborn in Egypt after GOD released the 10 plagues as judgment against Pharaoh and the Egyptians’ disobedience.

I also want to make it known that most of these people were tongue talkers!

We have written before on how the enemy uses tongues to release curses upon themselves and the ones they love…without even realizing it!

All those prayer requests requesting prayer, from TONGUE TALKERS?

Let me share something with you:  I am not of the crew that speaks ill of people who don’t know any better.  And having come out of that crowd of pentecostals/charismatics, I understand ALL TOO WELL the error they operate in.  I understand the love affair and deception that is latent in the doctrines of speaking in tongues.  I understand how people can hold on to that doctrine for dear life, even when it hasn’t produced any (lasting) fruit, and caused illness, calamity, sickness and in some cases, even premature death!

But it will take the Spirit of the Living God to reveal this to many.

I won’t say you should come out of the church.  You need to hear that from GOD for yourself.

But I will say this much:

Recognize what is going on around you and do NOT ignore those tiny urgings from the Spirit of God when HE warns you about things, or people, or groups, or churches, or affiliations. If GOD tells you to hold off on the tongues, DO IT!

In THIS season, it can literally be a matter of life, or death.

WHO IS SHE? ( By An Online Deliverance Ministry )

By Pamela Sheppard

Jesus warned in Revelation 18:4 “COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE.” After the fall of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, I thought that Revelation Ch: 18 was fulfilled right before my eyes  for several reasons.  However, one fact caused me to know that the dust fallout in NYC and the fall of “world trade” were not the complete fulfillment of this chapter.  Why?  Because the World Trade Center may be rebuilt.  The scripture clearly states that when Babylon Falls, there will be no rebuilding of her. Yet as did others, I presumed that either NYC or on a larger scale,  America is Mystery Babylon.

I began to tell people to come out of my home town, the Big Apple while others were shouting, “Leave America.”  A small exodus has occurred on both fronts: with NYC dwellers moving either upstate or out of state and others, fleeing the US have taken refuge in Canada.Some prophets are saying that the remnant in this country are going to fly away to the Carribean when things get really dangerous here.

After a few years, I realized that NYC is not Babylon. Could it be America? Perhaps.Yet   if we left NYC or America, where in the world shall we go, even if we had enough money to get there!!! The Carribean has too many hurricanes!  So I don’t think that Jesus would warn us to do something that was not possible for ALL of His elect to do.

 In fact, I don’t believe that Mystery Babylon is a physical place.  I am not alone in my belief that Mystery Babylon is symbolic of the world system which also includes the organized religion.   Why the church?  Well, when I look at the 4th verse of Revelation 18:  I notice two words:  “My People.”  Where are the Lord’s people?”  Well, for the most part, they are members of  the organized religion, be it Catholic, Protestant, denominational or word of faith.  God’s people are in the system known as “church.”

 There are many reasons why I believe that besides the political and economic systems, the organized church is a part of the world. Yet, I center on ONE reason.  Since  the job of the organized church around the world is to tend the sheep, failing to feed the sheep  truth by sound doctrine is a serious matter. No one can deny that the entire church system is “heeding seducing spirits and spreading doctrines of devils.” (I Tim 4:1-4)

 However a part of “tending” the sheep is to provide protection from wolves in sheeps clothing.   When the wolves predominate in both the pulpits and the pews, then those who are really God’s elect are in serious danger.
You may be having bible study with a wolf.
You may be submitting yourself to a wolf to pastor you.
The irony is that in vain, churchgoers continue to religiously and faithfully comply with organizational expectations, yet without understanding or realizing that unseen forces continue to wreak havoc on committed people.
When people go to church expecting to receive salvation, come away with spirits of torment and divination, something is “definitely wrong.”  I know that “sheep that say baaa”  are considered stupid. However, it doesn’t take the genious of a rocket scientist to realize that “church”  is  not  a safe place today.  So as Jesus warned, you need to obey Him:  “Come Out of Her, My People, lest ye be partakers of Her sins, lest ye receive of Her plagues.”
Church is a dangerous place, Beloved. 
As “last days” believers, you need to come out of Her.
Once you decide to come out, help is available.  Give us a call at 518-477-5759.

Is It Preaching? Or Sermonizing? (An Online Deliverance Ministry)

The Foolishness oPreaching...

I couldn’t agree with Pam more…

Approximately over a year ago, I wrote the following blog on preaching.

This is a question each preacher needs to ask themselves:

Am I PREACHING or Am I SERMONIZING???????

My updated corrections are in parenthesis:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 1:18-21

 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

 Preaching…

 We as ministers of the gospel know all about it.  Even those we label as laity know about preaching.  We know all types of preaching.  We know the hoop. The holler.  The in between, asthma-like huffs and puffs in between phrases or sentences.  We get excited over it.  We dance over it.  We shout and rejoice.  The desired result of preaching, according to the Word of the Lord, is to save souls.  I could be wrong, but I don’t see anywhere in scripture that tells us to preach to saved folks, but to instruct, to edify, or grow the saints up in the things of God.

 If we want to encourage the saints, the Word tells us to speak to each other ‘in spiritual songs and psalms:

 Ephesians 5:19

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord...

If we want to edify one another, grow the saints up, the Word tells us to teach and admonish one another-again with ‘psalms, hymns, & spiritual songs…’

Colossians 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

 The Word does not say to preach to saved folks.  Preach to unsaved folks; teach, admonish, speak to, rebuke, reprove the saints!

 Ministers, fellow laborers…

Just think about it.  This may be why the souls are not growing.  You’ve been preaching to them for 20 years.  Preaching (sermonizing, using Pam’s term) them happy.  Preaching (sermonizing) them sad.  Preaching (sermonizing) them prosperity.  Preaching (sermonizing) them strange doctrines.  Preaching (sermonizing) everything…why are you preaching salvation to saved folks?

I was listening to this very popular woman preacher (heck, I will post her name:  it was Cindy Trimm).  She was preaching, but it was in a religious setting.  So I hit play.  I will admit:  I was somewhat annoyed at her preaching in cadence and all…

“And the Lord say…HA!

“Repent for the Kingdom of God…HA!

“..is at hand….HA!”

 As she continued, on her rant for about 40 minutes, I grew very aggravated.  Not because what she was saying wasn’t true, but because of the preaching in cadence, and the organist playing behind her.  But I hung in there..I hung in there until, while preaching in cadence, she bust out…

“…that’s not my key!…”

‘No she didn’t!  No she didn’t preach to the organist to take the key up one notch!’

The organist complied and took the key up one notch!

immediately turned the message off, in utter shock at what I just heard!

Now, I don’t know about anyone else.  But I found all the theatrics behind the message quite distracting.  What Trimm was saying could have been very relevant, very powerful (but I doubt it).  And very true…but the organist playing behind her, and her “HA!” she exclaimed every 5 words was-quite frankly-getting on my nerves!

I have preached sermons, and I had to tell the organist to stop playing behind me because he was distracting from the message, and was NOT playing under the anointing!  (And what’s more shocking is that the organist was my OWN father! He didn’t speak to me for a minute after that message!)

Now I write what I write not just because of an annoyance or a preference of mine.  It is an admonition for preachers to take a good hard look at the fruit of what they’ve been doing for years.  We have to ask ourselves-at some point-why do we do the things we do…in the church?  Is it relevant?  Effective?  What are the results?  

We have preached all these sermons, in all kinds of styles.  With the best musicians playing behind us.  But what good has it done?  Really!

Let’s be real about it.

No one’s getting saved at (church) altars; the ones at the altars are the same ones who been going to the altar for years.  I can talk about it cuz I was a professional altar seeker!   I used to snot and cry all over the place.  I laid out all over the floor.  Shouted.  Danced.  Screamed to the top of my lungs…out of sincerity.  Really believing I was delivered, when the preaching had done nothing more than emotionally move me, excite me.

 Preachers…the saints don’t need to hear another sermon from us.  They need to be taught!

And, as you can see with Pam and I citing our examples of sermonizing by Trimm and Jakes, preachers need NOT imitate the styles of their favorite preacher of the month either!  Because most of them are sermonizing and spreading doctrines of devils!

 What do they need to be taught?  SALVATION.  DELIVERANCE.  THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!!

It is only when the TRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST IS PREACHED that we will rid the altars of professional altar seekers and the  unsaved, unregenerated souls WILL GET SAVED AND DELIVERED!

Let’s know when to preach, when to teach.

The only time we see the word ‘preached’ used in the Bible is when the audience was UNSAVED.  When the apostles spoke to those who were saved, the Word says they taught them, they instructed, they expounded, they rebuked, they reproved…

 Do ur homework…

 Let’s get back to using the foolishness of preaching…the Bible’s way.

 I encourage you to study that whole chapter of 1 Corinthians 1.  It will change your whole perspective on preaching.

‘Christian Wicca: It IS a Religion!’

From September 2011

When we hear the word ‘Wicca,’ we associate it immediately with the art or religion of witchcraft.

Wicca has been described as a religion that affords its followers the freedom and liberty to use spells, incantations, chantings, and corporate prayer to bring about healing.  Healing of what is termed ‘Mother Earth,’ healing of individuals’ bodies from ailments and diseases, as well as the healing of nature itself.  Wiccans also celebrate festivals-eight of them per year-that are called ‘sabbats.’  They believe there is a god and a goddess.  They believe that the Trinity is a goddess.  Wiccans started getting popular in the late 1950s, but their foundations were set long before then.  As early as the early 1900s, witchcraft and New Age practices were being openly practiced in other countries.

Wicca was brought about primarily for the purpose of turning the stereotypical tide of how witchcraft was generally perceived.  Due to the Witch hunts of the past, and subsequent persecutions and even executions of alleged and proven witches (i.e. Salem Witch Hunts in Massachusetts), society had succeeded in making the general public afraid of witches and witchcraft.

What Wicca’s purpose was was to show the world that witches mean ‘no harm’ and want to help people, the earth.  Hence the terms ‘good witch’ and ‘good witchcraft’ that would be adopted later on in the 20th century.

I was quite shocked to discover that 1) Wicca is now recognized as a viable ‘religion,’ and 2) that there is a sect of Wiccans who call themselves ‘Christians’ or ‘Trinitarian Wiccans!’

One has to question…How is it possible to combine teachings of Wicca and Christianity?

Christian, or Trinitarian Wiccans also believe that Jesus Christ existed, that He was a prophet and a teacher.  They attempt to follow ‘some’ Christian teachings, but by virtue of the very essence of Wicca, they cannot because it will require for them to reject some of the very things that makes them Wiccan.

Hence the term-and new sect of Wicca-that is now known as Trinitarian, or Christian, Wicca!

This is nothing more than another classic example of mixing two religions and coming up with yet another concoction, a new set of belief systems, and recruiting followers in which to label them as such.

What caught my attention about this new sect is the fact that these are witches who are open about their agenda….and have no problem being associated with beliefs in Christianity!

But I also want to point out that SOME of these Trinitarian Wiccans possibly have infiltrated the organized church system and have brought in with them a whole new array of deceit, error, and false doctrine.

This would explain all of the false doctrine and error that is latent in a lot of sermons across church pulpits.

The way that this has been able to happen is because one of the prominent characteristics of Wiccans is that they desire to do good.  Their desire (their worship) of earth and THIS life.  Their desire to see others healed, at any cost.  Their general acceptance and practice of the supernatural.

These are all characteristics that have been accepted into the organized church system.

Due to the lack of GODLY GENUINE POWER (because God is no longer in the churches), church people generally have-out of desperation-accepted ANY FORM of power to step in, so it can appear that God is still there…

2 Timothy 3:4-6

Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts…

(I also think it ironic that we call male witches ‘warlocks.’   A main student of probably the most famous witch in this country, Laurie Cabot, clarifies that a warlock is not a male witch; the term warlock means ‘traitor.’ So generally speaking, male witches like to call themselves witches as well).  Interesting…

But anyway, the lack of power in the organized church system has brought about an amalgamation-a mixture, a merger of sorts-an acceptance of the merger of the clean and the unclean.  The vile with the holy.

And along with these mergers (for trust, there are many more such ‘mergers’ going on with mainstream christianity i.e. Crislam) is the trend towards what is termed as ‘religious tolerance.’

Tolerance is one of the ways the enemy has been able to slowly but surely infiltrate popular thinking-in and out of the church system.  To tolerate something is to give it acceptance.  To not call something evil, that IS inherently evil.  To not call wrong wrong.

The Word of God tells us often to shun evil, and cleave to that which is good.  We are not to embrace evil, even as a means to attain good.

The organized church system has embraced evil, to do good, and given full access to pulpits across this country to witches.

Some of these witches are very popular.  Most of them most would not label or term them as witches, per se, because they are blinded to the very characteristics of witches, Wicca and religion in general.

As long as they can produce-produce that healing, produce that deliverance, produce that answer to prayer-that is what most people are concerned with…no matter at what cost.

I saw something very interesting on TV today:  I saw a Wiccan prayer service.  They were singing, chanting (in English, by the way), they were calling upon the gods and goddesses.  They were praying for someone’s healing.  They chanted ‘Blessings!  Blessings!’  Then they clapped and were dismissed.

Looked just like one of those ‘prayer meetings’ I used to attend when I went to church.  MORE than one!

REAL believers-those who have not allowed themselves to tolerate or fall for the mixture(s) of doctrines and belief systems that are so popular today-must NOT ‘tolerate’ mixtures of christianity in the guise of showing the world we are viable, relevant, produce results or productive.  Or tolerant.

If this is not proof positive that one needs to come out and be separate, I don’t know what is.

Wisdom for Ministers…From An Online Deliverance Ministry

I had the pleasure of finally meeting my mentor, Pamela Sheppard, face-to-face this week.  This week marks 31 years that Pam has been in ministry!

I also had the honor of interviewing Pam and asking her a few questions about what it is like for a woman in ministry, at a time when it was not  popular for a woman to not only be in ministry in a mostly male-dominated denomination, but to be in leadership as well.

Look at the videos and glean wisdom.

If you would like to be mentored by someone who has been there and done that in ministry, call 518-477-5759.

“I Can’t Find A Church!” – An Online Deliverance Ministry

By Pamela Sheppard

” Many readers and visitors to  pamsheppard.com will be shocked to hear a minister of 30 years write that for most of you, it is best that you not attend church in your local community. I served as a pastor for about 15 of the 27 years both denominational and nondenominational service. Today, I personally believe that a person can grow spiritually without regularly attending an organized church. Most definitely, you should assemble with the saints, but the word of God does not lay out a detailed order of service, nor does it suggest the day you should assemble, the time or even the nature of the place or building where gathering together should take place. We live in a computerized world, where we can “assemble” 24/7.

Simply put, I truly believe that the organized church as it now stands will be completely revamped by the Lord. Why? Because quite frankly, the traditional structures are not working. When I wrote 3 of my 6 books, I was hopeful that repentance would bring about reformation and renewal to the organized church. However, the love of money, which is the root of ALL evil, has permeated most of the church and I seriously doubt if the Lord is going to allow it to continue to exist in its present state. Judgement is HERE (for the organized church) and I shudder at what is happening to church and to churchgoers. In the meantime, for those of you who feel that you need to assemble in an organized church, the following comments are provided for you to assist you in your pursuit to find a church.

The following excerpt is taken from one of the chapters in “Faces of the Religious Demon.” If after you read this you would like to obtain either the ebook or the softcover, click here. In truth, I do not believe that Jesus intended for any one who follows Him to lower their spiritual guard by relying on others to watch on his behalf. Just as we don’t need a weather man to tell us that spring is coming, we also don’t need people to complicate the obvious. Case in point. If the Anti-Christ is actually a human being, then it is clear to me that he shall come forth out of Christianity for a very simple reason. Satan has had a seat in the organized church for centuries. There is no better place for the devil to conceal, prepare and empower his son of evil and destruction than within a worldly Christian system.

The word of God clearly testifies not only to the fact that demons were operating during the Lord’s earthly ministry, but that renewed demonic activity will manifest in the latter days. (I Timothy Ch:4:1-4) Paul’s warning to Timothy does not merely relate to new manifestations of evil in the world but to an ever-increasing apostasy in the professing church, a cult promoted by seducing spirits of a highly sensitive spirituality. In spite of this infiltration by demons into the organized church, I still believe there is a remnant of believers within the system that GOD HIMSELF is calling out.  However, the organized church is an institution created by man, not even described or promoted by the Word of God:

“…Realize that being part of a group that calls itself a “church” does not make you saved, holy, righteous, or godly any more than being in Yankee Stadium makes you a professional baseball player. Participating in church-based activities does not necessarily draw you closer to God or prepare you for a life that satisfies Him or enhances your existence….Sadly, many people will label this view ‘blasphemy.’. However, you should realize that the Bible neither describes nor promotes the local church as we know it today. Many centuries ago, religious leaders created the prevalent form of ‘church’ that is so widespread in our society to help people be better followers of Christ. But the local church many have come to cherish—the services, offices, programs, buildings, ceremonies—is neither biblical nor unbiblical. It is a-biblical— that is, such an organization is not addressed in the Bible.” (Revolution, pg. 37) 5

Therefore, since the church model of modern times is neither promoted nor discredited in the Word of God, I believe that it’s viability should be determined by some very wise and practical applications:

1. In terms of its structure, is it an episcopal denomination or an independent body? Quite frankly, if it is a connected church, then even though it may be uncorrupted at the local level, linked to an ungodly authority or “Mother Church” (headquarters, diocese, fellowships, and the such) will eventually spoil or damage the spiritual fruits throughout the entire system. By nature of its organization, a religious demon will have a seat in high places. The complicated, political form of an episcopal church with a connected governing body should be avoided primarily due to its structure. Consequently, its bishops and leaders will be prone to cover-ups, particularly where improprieties and outright sin may be involved among its various charges. In my second book, I describe this dilemma:

“A Bishop’s power lies in his ability to appoint a pastor and fill a pulpit. Since pastors in full-time ministry are totally dependent each year upon whether or not the Bishop chooses to favor them with an appointment to a church that will be lucrative enough to continue to provide for themselves and their families, a conflict of interest automatically inherent within the Episcopal form of church government will ultimately manifest.” (The Making of A Prophet, pg. 84) 6

Dealing with sin in such a structure is like trying to eliminate roaches from a city block where all of the buildings are erected side by side and are therefore “connected”. If you bomb one apartment with a pesticide, or even exterminate an entire building, the roaches will simply run upstairs, downstairs or to the building next door. Regardless of how clean you keep your apartment, you will not be able to contain the roaches, especially after dark. Just go in the kitchen and turn on your lights and hundreds of them will be flying around as if they had wings!!! Every connected building has to be bombed from one corner to the other on the entire street, or the roaches will soon return.

So is the fate of the connected churches. The leaven of the Pharisees is impossible to contain without a complete annihilation.

2.  Where an independent church is concerned, the issue is not so much its structure but whether or not it has a system in place to avoid spiritual neglect or abuse. Within a small assembly or a mega church, every sheep in that church should have someone who personally knows him and who ministers to his personal needs. If members are compelled to go outside of their local church to receive competent counseling, deliverance, healing and recovery, then I suspect that the primary benefit experienced in church is merely a soothing of their flesh as a byproduct of the worship experience of song and praise. Moreover, congregations of this kind provide a social environment for family members. In my opinion, social contacts with Christians can be obtained at a Christian concert and family activities are available at the local YMCA. If your spiritual needs are not being met at your local church, then you are just involved in a social club and your local church has no real spiritual value. Recently I learned that state of the art children’s ministry programs can become traps due to the fact that the parents won’t leave a church even when they realize that the basic core of the church is corrupt. The pressures for dissatisfied parents to remain are exerted by the social and entertainment needs of their children.

3.  The independent churches that can be very dangerous include those that call themselves “deliverance churches.” In some of these assemblies, the religious demon and the witchcraft spirit are running rampant with counterfeits in worship, doctrine, prayer and other strange practices including a heavy emphasis on being slain in the spirit.

“A demonstration of real power is not falling slain. We see a lot of this phenomena in the ministries of TV evangelists, particularly in the Pentecostal and non-denominational churches. Demonstration of God’s power would be after you have fallen out in the spirit, what condition were you in when you got to your feet?!!! Where you healed? Were you delivered? Did God speak to you a word in due season concerning a special problem you have been challenged with? Or did you just pass out because everybody else was passing out!? ( The Making of a Prophet, pg. 199) 7

4. I agree with Dr. Rebecca Brown’s warning concerning various counterfeits manifested through the speaking in other tongues, primarily among word of faith, pentecostal and Charismatic Catholic churches:

“Christians have made the terrible mistake of assuming that ALL tongues are from God. How wrong they are!…It is well-known that many occultic rituals are done in tongues….The fact that Catholics speak in tongues is not proof that they are filled with the Holy Spirit. Too many of these precious Catholic souls assume that because they are speaking in tongues, they are saved. How can the Holy Spirit be operative and manifesting in a system of idolatry? Those involved in the Catholic Charismatic movement who really start reading and studying the Bible soon realize they must separate themselves from the idolatrous Roman Catholic Church if they are going to serve the true Jesus of the Bible.” (Prepare for War, pgs. 182,183) 8

5.  However, the crucial factors of your assessment of a local church actually relate to the security of your eternal life, which is truly where the rubber meets the road. Why go to church if, in the final analysis, you do not escape damnation by traveling the narrow way to eternal life? Assuredly, you should examine how and with what regularity the doctrines of repentance, resurrection and rebirth are being preached and taught? A church with a Jezebel influence will minimize or overlook the importance of these “3 R’s” through excessive tradition, polity and other less important priorities of doctrine.

6.  If a local church minimizes the need to learn the devices of the devil or does not even recognize the existence and the workings of demonic forces in these times, then it is in a low condition of spiritual life and power. I believe that such a church should be avoided like the plague. In fact, such ignorance on the part of a congregation’s leadership is an indication to demons of the leaders’ accommodation to them through fear, an open door to demonic influence. According to Jessie Penn-Lewis:

“A perspective view of the ages covered by the history in Bible records, shows that the rise and fall in spiritual power of the people of God, was marked by the recognition of the existence of the demoniacal host of evil. When the Church of God in the old and new dispensations was at the highest point of spiritual power, the leaders recognized, and drastically dealt with, the invisible forces of Satan and when at the lowest, they were ignored, or allowed to have free course, among the people.” (War on the Saints, 9th edition, pg.27)

Consequently, if there is no emphasis in the local church on spiritual warfare and deliverance, that church is without spiritual power.

7.  The emphasis upon the Word of God in a church should and could be a good sign; Nevertheless, it is misleading and immaterial to base your assessment of a church solely upon evidence that all its members carry bibles, yellow markers and recite scriptures. For when leadership does not rightly divide the word, then heresies posing as revelation truths give place to the doctrines of devils that Paul warned Timothy about (I Timothy 4:1): the prosperity gospel, dominion teaching, “name it and claim it”, pre-tribulation rapture, submission to authority, eternal security, no ordination for women, and other doctrines too numerous to mention even in one book.

False doctrines of this kind are skillfully birthed by teaching demons to deceive and exploit the people. If the devil had nerve enough to get “religious” by reciting scripture out of its context to tempt the Lord Jesus Himself, then he has trained his demonic army to do likewise to us. (Matthew 4:1-11)

“Out of context” preaching tends to draw those who have not truly repented nor been converted, but who are enticed to come to church by the excitement that scriptural hype can produce. Such preaching and teaching draws people, places and things to the building—those who seek blessings to get their needs met or to fulfill their dreams—but they have not really been drawn to Christ.

8.  A church after the Lord’s heart is the church of Philadelphia: those who do not deny His name and who have kept His word.(Revelation 3:7-13) This is a church that will not compromise the truth, either for the favor of the world or for unity with other churches. Since we all see through a glass darkly, a good pastor is one who continually examines if he is rightly dividing the word. When errors and contradictions are uncovered, then a good pastor openly and publicly admits to his or her mistakes, correcting any inaccurate teachings without hesitation. The Lord declared that the church of Philadelphia was of little strength, so it is clear that His assessment was not based upon numbers of members, wealth or resources. I believe that a major part of keeping His word is to go forth and cast out demons. A good church is about building people so that they can confront the demonic influences to expel the darkness in their own environment, equipping the sheep to be living stones, holy vessels for the Spirit of the Lord to dwell in.

UPDATE:  (9/22/11) I’ve come a long way since I wrote this article. In this hour, I believe that all churches have become dwelling places of demons for one primary reason. They all teach that man chooses God by a decision of his or her own free will, by saying:  “I accept Jesus” and by asking Him to “come into my heart.” Jesus is at the right hand of the Father. The Holy Ghost comes into the human spirit and not the heart. The heart is a function of the fallen soul of man and it is desperately wicked, and as such, has no capability of choosing God without the ministry of the Holy Ghost.

But even so, there is a refuge for you if you, too, have recognized and seen the organized church system is stock full of demons.

If you have seen it, too, and if you are looking for mentoring, for counseling, for deliverance and healing, please call  518-477-5759.

A Prophetic Dream About TD Jakes, Fire, and False Doctrine

My mentor, Pamela Sheppard, shared a dream she had with me last night a few hours ago, and it was regarding TD Jakes…

Below is her rendition of it:


Pam  was certainly NOT aware of this fire at the Potter’s House/Denver.  She made this video earlier today, and she had the dream last night/early this morning.. seven.hours before the blaze occurred!

“Fire Damages Potter’s House in Denver”  http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_21793634/fire-damages-potters-house-church-aurora

All I can say is look at it for yourself, and YOU decide what’s what.

Fire is what I like to call the ultimate discerner.  You want to know what something (or someone) is made of, let it go through the fire.

There is nothing else that needs to be said!

If you are in need of help during your fire, give us a call at 518-477-5759.
