The Curses and Plagues of the IC by Pam Sheppard

preacher

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Don’t say you have not been warned.

Joel Osteen Has Detracted From The Word of God

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Romans, “Let the God of peace fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope through the power of the Holy Ghost.” (Romans 15:13 )To the Colossians,Paul wrote “Let the peace of God rule in your hearts.” (Col 3:15)  Yet there is such a thing as a false peace. I just watched Oprah’s interview of Joel Osteen, and what manifested clearly is a false peace  by a self-proclaimed blessing. Although he took a stronger stand on the Lord as the only way to the Father than he has in the past,  Osteen hesitated with tongue in cheek as he made it clear that homosexuality is a sin.Yet he equated sodomy on a  with “telling a lie or being proud.”

  When a Osteen struggles to not offend anyone and   he tells a tv audience that homosexuals shall go to heaven,  he detracted from the word of God.  Paul wrote and warned the Corinthian believers that effeminates shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Does inheriting  the kingdom equate to “going to heaven?” Not completely, but it certainly is a part of the overall package. To be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD “IN HEAVEN” while He remains there. Consequently, Osteen has sent out a platitude  of a” false peace.”Commonsense ought to tell Osteen that  since  God destroyed Sodom primarily because of homosexual activity, it’s a sin far more damning than a lie or pride.. To not be truthful with the gay community is in itself, a lie. Along these same lines, when preachers expound on the escape of a lukewarm, deluded Laodicean age through a pre-tribulation rapture or messages that uphold financial prosperity for all, a  false peace prevails.

Yet when the evil day comes, we will need the peace of God to rule. In this country, we have the expectation that happiness is ours by our American birthright, so we are in constant pursuit of it, particularly on the weekend.  I should spell it “weak end.” Many are speeding in are cars, fighting  in parking lots and pushing forward in various malls and supermarkets, with dentist appointments, diets,  vacations, manicures, gyms, and restaurants on our minds.  The irony is that as a nation in pursuit of happiness, “our weak end” is that we find no peace.

Moreover,  there is coming a day when all of our material comforts shall fail us and the fundamentals of food, water and shelter shall ascend in priority.  I know because I have seen it in the spirit.What usually causes us to lose peace is a lack of understanding that leads to confusion. In other words, what we don’t know brings stress. Therefore, in 2012, I offer a few points that will help you to let the peace of God reign.

  1. Learn how to thank God for “the answer.” The answer might be that “you will not get an answer in the way that you expected.”We must wait for the Lord’s answer in peace. Very often, the Lord has already given us the answer but we did not hear Him because we were too preoccupied and consequently, too stressed. We cry “speak to m,e, Lord and He has already spoken.”
  2. Learn how to stop trying to figure Him out. Most believers have a misunderstanding of prayer because they have been led by false doctrine and habitual expressions like “prayer changes things.” God does not need our prayers for Him to act.  We do not control God with our prayers.  Prayer changes us, not things.  Prayer is what brings the peace of God that confounds human understanding.  Prayer does not change God.  Most of the time, we do not know God’s will.  When we don’t, then we need to pray and ask Him to reveal His will.  Once His will is revealed in a particular situation, then peace will automatically rule in our spirits.
  3. Learn how to walk in the light as He is in the light.  I have an expression that brings me peace.  It goes “TO KNOW, BOW LOW.” When the brightness of the gospel falls upon us, we should immediately prostrate ourselves under His light and declare “Lord, I accept your sentence. I agree with your judgment. I seek mercy in this matter.” Meekness before God will prepare you to receive light, revelation or in other word, “enlightenment.” Enlightenment leads to deliverance and deliverance brings forth discernment, wisdom and freedom.

In the New Year, many google for prophecies because they have no peace in uneasy times. A wet blanket of worry, fear and stress has fallen on multitudes of professing Christians who search the web for a prophetic messages. Since they are reading the signs of the times, believers are looking for confirmation and assurances that we will make it beyond December 21, 2o12. In the New Idolatry you will find these words:”Doubt can be a good thing, particularly when those fictitious, religious foundations upon which a captive has built his pride system become shaky.”

Yet in the final analysis, the message that should give you peace is both spiritually historic, prophetic and biblical. Simply put, if you be in Christ, He has already spoken peace to your troubled spirit t when He he prophesied that “if you endure to the end, you shall be saved.” (Matthew 24:13)

This ministry is about preparing the elect of God to “endure to the end,” through publications, deliverance counseling, deliverance mentoring, and deliverance training. Ours is a Christ centered, a spiritual warfare and a spiritual empowerment strategy.  So our help is available to you. Send an email to pamsheppard911@yahoo.com or call 518-477-5759.

Beware of Taking Scripture Out of Its Natural Context

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

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

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

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

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

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

WHY I LOVE THE APOSTLE PAUL

Sherry Shriner is quite popular on the web.  In fact, she was a big help to me while I was conducting my research for the book

Pam Sheppard, 30 years a minister for the Lord Jesus.

“The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”  I found her knowledge of the ascended masters to be quite helpful.  However, her writings on the Apostle Paul are blasphemous, considering that Paul wrote 1/3 of the New Testament.  I won’t go into Sherry’s contentions about this phenomenal apostle because I refuse to spread her point of view.  Instead, as a former atheist who had never been to church and no one had ever witnessed to me, Paul has been crucial to my spiritual understanding of what happened to me that strange but marvelous day when I became born again. For when I had my own Damascus Road experience with the Lord Jesus Christ, I knew of no one else who had ever had one.

Even though I got born again before I ever heard of the Apostle PAUL, I would not have understood why on March 29, 1977, I felt “so different.”  The newness.  The cleanness. The past seemed so far away.  No shame or guilt for ANYTHING and I had been quite the sinner in my first 33 years of life.  Why on this strange day in March did I feel like “I had JUST been born?”  A few minutes after I was “born again,” I opened my brand new bible and it turned to John 3, the words of the Lord, “you must be born again, that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit.”  After I read this, then the Holy Spirit spoke and said “Pam, you have just given birth to your new spirit in Christ Jesus.  Go run a bathtub full of water, and baptize yourself in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost!”

Wow!  Yahoo!  I never felt so great in my life!!! 

No, Paul did NOT cause me to be saved.  No one did but God Himself.

I did not go to church for two years.  All I had was the Apostle Paul and the 4 gospels.  As a babe in Christ, home alone in my apartment, Paul caused me to understand my faith by confirming to me how and why God saved me.  Too many people read Paul’s letters in order to be saved.  In other words, they desire to be saved to escape hell,  and so they mechanically DO what Paul wrote about.  They think that if I SAY a confession, I  will be saved and I will go to heaven  because Paul wrote, “Confess the Lord with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus was raised from dead, you are saved. That settles it.  I accept Jesus.  I choose to be saved.  I seal it with saying the sinner’s prayer.  I’ll stamp it by going forward to the altar at the invitation.   

You see, when I read Paul’s words, I said “Ah, that is what happened to me.”  I did not repeat  or confess words.  When the Holy Ghost saved me, I felt like a coin was dropped into me, like I was  a soda machine. But  Lo and behold, what came out of the machine was not soda, but faith in the resurrection of a dead man that I not only did not believe in, but I claimed that Jesus Christ never even existed, but that He was merely a white man’s myth!!!!”  I said nothing from my mouth but “Jesus.” “I am crying for what we did to Jesus!” That was it.  I said nothing about the resurrection.  I just knew that I knew that I knew that Jesus was dead, got up in His body and walked out of His own tomb, three days later.  My belief on the resurrection was the rock or stone that dropped into me and never left in 34 years, not one time! No doubt Jesus is alive in His body not one time in 34 years!!!!

So when Paul wrote  that we are saved by grace through faith, I understood the first time I read it because it had happened to me two years before reading Paul’s words to the Ephesians.  I knew beyond a  shadow of a doubt that my salvation was a gift from God because I never even sought the gift. On top of that, I was the last person that anyone who knew me would have believed what happened to me. So I could nod my head in agreement with Paul because I knew that my salvation had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ME.

However, what Paul taught me that I did not already know as a babe in Christ,  is that the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the son of God.  Without Paul, I would not have known or even understood that I can’t please God with my flesh.  Paul has been for me one of the best biblical examples of a spiritually fruitful child of God.  Once filled with pride over his scholarly achievements, his heritage and his cultural and religious attainments, Paul taught me how to die and yet live at the same time.  He taught me how to stand against the enemy, how to press on to victory, how to walk in the spirit and not fulfill my lust of my flesh. He taught me how to press on to the mark of my high calling in the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

No, Paul did not cause me to be saved.  What he did was train up a babe in Christ to become a minister.  Once I entered ministry, I had a number of elders and a few bishops that I was mandated to submit to.  However, none of them taught me a thing about what it take to be a minister.  It was Paul who did that.   I thank Paul for that. 

 In fact, I love Paul the Apostle.
