THE BREAKING OF EGYPT

In light of the recent news of the rioting and violence that is currently going on in Egypt, the Spirit of the Lord led me to Isaiah 18 and 19.  I can honestly say I hadn’t ever seen a clearer, more direct prophecy regarding the end times as this one.  
To my surprise, Pam Sheppard had already written about Egypt as she pertains to the endtimes over a year ago.  The Word of God says out of the mouths of two or three witnesses let every word be established.
 The above is Professor Gamal Zahran, head of the Department of Political Science at Port Said University in Egypt shared that the younger generation in Egypt are being taught to ‘hate Israel,’ so much so that they will be willing to lay down their lives if need be to bring Israel down. 
Surely, with Egyptians making very inflammatory and threatening statements such as what we read above, God is going to break Egypt.
Clearly, the Lord wants His Remnant to keep a close eye on Egypt.  All the other attacks that has followed are merely smoke screens to get many off focus on what is going on.  
With that being said, below is the blog Pam wrote over a year ago regarding Egypt and the end times.

THE BREAKING OF EGYPT
By Pamela Sheppard
In the second month of 2011, we have seen Egypt’s endtime prophetic destiny begin to unfold, manifesting before the eyes of the world.
Check out the prophecy of Isaiah 19:
“The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Lord RIDETH upon a swift cloud,and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbor; city against city and kingdom against kingdom. And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof’ and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord of hosts.” 
Did we not see the underlined portion of Isaiah’s prophecy transpire right before our eyes on public television???
Is this “cruel lord,” the fierce king”  Hosni Mubarak (former president of Egypt) or is this cruel one Mubarak’s replacement, current Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi? With Mubarak forced to resign, the rest of this prophecy declares that “things are going to get a lot worst.” 
Read the entire chapter for yourself: Isaiah 19.
I believe that it is very important that we watch Egypt, for as the prophecy continues to unfold, we may get a sense of how long it will be before the Lord returns. Certainly not the hour, the day or the month, but we may be able to know “the year” by “watching Egypt.”
What stands out for me is that Isaiah prophecied that after the revolution recently fought by neighbor against neighbor in the public square, the fighting, though quieted now, will spread—from internal fighting that spread even beyond the borders of Egypt into “other kingdoms.”
Besides catastrophic, environmental upheavals, Isaiah also declared in the rest of the chapter that Egypt shall be taken over “by Canaan.”
Who is present-day Canaan?
According to the New World Encyclopedia, present day Canaan is Israel.  Canaan is an ancient term for a region approximating present-day Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, plus adjoining coastal lands and parts of Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan.  Canaanites are mentioned extensively in the Bible, as well as in Mesopotamian and Ancient Egyptian texts.
According to the Bible, the land of Canaan was the “promised land” which God gave to Abraham and his descendants. The Canaanites themselves, however, were considered to be the implacable enemies of the Israelites, who practiced adecadent and idolatrous religion. Contemporary archaeologists, however, see much continuity between the Canaanite population and the early Israelites,with whom they shared a common language and customs.
So if this is an endtime prophecy, then Isaiah has predicted that present dayEgypt shall be taken over by present day Israel.
Whether it be a gradual infiltration or an out-and-out invasion, Isaiah says that the seizure shall be so complete, that Egyptians in five cities will end up speaking the language of these “Canaanites.” As to the language of Canaan, I again quote the New World Encyclopedia:  ‘The Canaanite language refers to a group of closely related Semitic languages.  Hebrew was once a southern dialect of the Canaanite language,and Ugaritic, a northern one. Canaanite is the first language to use a Semitic alphabet, from which most other scripts derive.’
In other words, Egyptians are going to end up speaking Hebrew!!!
The infiltration seems to be an invasion, almost as God’s continued retribution against Egypt’s 400 years enslavement of the people of Abraham, delivered by Moses.
Here is the scripture:
“The Lord hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit. Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail,branch or rush, may do in that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the Lord of hosts, which he shaketh over it. And the land of Judau shall be a terror untoEgypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Lord of hosts, which he (the Lord) hath determined against it.” (verses 14-17)
What really stands out for me in Isaiah 19 are verses 19-25 that refer to the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. It seems to me that this outstanding event MUST take place immediately AFTER the end of the age when the Lord comes back to earth with the departed saints and those who are alive at His coming.
Just before the Lord returns, Egyptians “shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppression that they will receive at the hand of Israel and the Savior will be sent to the Egyptians to deliver them.”
This prophecy of Isaiah causes me to wonder whether or not the Anti-Christ is an Israelite.  More on that in the future.
For now, I focus my attention to Isaiah’s prophetic words: “in that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord.”If the Lord comes and delivers Egypt “in person,” then this is a prophecy that will transpire AFTER the Lord comes back.
So logically speaking, if we watch what happens in Egypt as prophesied by Isaiah, then we can get a sense of when the Lord is coming back. How long does it take for a country to be so overtaken that the captives end up speaking the language of their oppressors? The answer to that question will determine whether you and I are alive when the Lord returns.  From a personal perspective, what REALLY strikes my attention is that the Lord intends to break Egypt in order to heal Egypt.
He broke Egypt in the days of Moses, yet the Egyptians were not healed at that time. However, when the Lord descends to rule all nations, He will have pity on the Egyptians. Where salvation and deliverance are concerned, the process is the same: God breaks in order to heal. To resist the breaking is to delay the healing. There are so many believers in God the Father who resist God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. For example, Muslims go directly to the Father, call Him “Allah,” and relegate the Lord to the role of prophet and teacher, denying His divinity.
 AN EXCERPT FROM “THE NEW IDOLATRY” (CONCERNING OLD TESTAMENT EGYPT)
If we are to understand the overall consequence and symbolic meaning of the 10 plagues that descended upon Egypt, we need to understand who the Egyptian gods were and what the Egyptians believed was the authority and power of each of the gods that they worshipped.  To these gods, prayers were invoked and sacrifices were made for centuries. The whole picture becomes understandable when we realize the extent of the identification of the demon gods with the land, the water and the sky of Egypt.
In his book, “The Invisible War,” the late Donald Grey Barnhouse paints an impressive picture of God’s message within the plagues, for with each of 10 judgments, God made the demon gods as nothing:
1.  “The first of the judgments was upon the waters of Egypt. Not only the Nile, but the other waters of the lands, even the water that was drawn for use in the houses, and which was kept in wooden vessels and stone jars, turned to blood, and for seven days the whole land was in this horror, with the fish dying and the rivers stinking. (Exodus 7:19-25.)
In order to comprehend the loss of face that this plague must have been for the gods of Egypt, we must realize how important and numerous were the gods of the river. Osiris, one of the chief gods of Egypt, was first of all god of the Nile, He together with his companion, the mother god, Isis, and their child Horus, were human-headed gods, among the many that had heads of birds, beasts and reptiles.”
2. The first plague was an insult to gods like Khnum, theguardian of the Nile. Hapi was identified with the great original gods who were believed to have created the world, regarded as the maker and molder of everything within the universe.  Imagine the horror and frustration of the people of Egypt as they gazed at that which was formerly beautiful only to find dead fish lining its shores.
Dead fish lined the shores of Arkansas, a significant state within the bible belt of both traditional religion and the charismatic movement. (Bible Belt is an informal term for an area of the United States in which socially conservative evangelical Protestantism is a significant part of the culture and Christian Church attendance across the denominations is extremely high.)

 Likewise, the next nine plagues proved the emptiness of the powers of the gods of Egypt:
3. Plague 2: The land was covered with an abundance of frogs, mocking the Egyptian god Hekt—who had the head of a frog—a god who was said to be the creator of the world. Amulets and scarabs were worn by Egyptian women to protect them during childbirth, bearing the image of Hekt for protection. Even the involuntary slaughter of a frog was often punished with death.
When the hundreds of thousands of frogs died, their decaying bodies created an awful stench throughout Egypt. The people had to gather the decaying bodies of the frogs and put them into heaps.
Plague 3: Known for its rich soil and its crops of onions, garlic, leeks, melons and luscious fruits of all kinds, the god of the earth called Geb was rendered powerless, unable to exterminate the sand flies and fleas. The priests could no longer duplicate their magic of former days as they were distracted by the constant itching. In fact, this particular plague was especially horrendous for the priests, for they were required to shave their heads everyday, and wear a single tunic, so that no lice could come upon their bodies.
Plague 4: The swarms of flies had a religious significance due tothe sacred scarab among the gods of Egypt. Deification of the scarab beetle is still seen in Egypt today. Amon-Ra was a god known in many forms, a real mockery to his power. However, most often, he had a head of a beetle. Imagine the confusion that covered the land at the arrival of swarms of insects worshiped as sacred into their homes. The plague of the swarms had yet another humiliating facet to it. This is the first plague in which God made a distinction between His people and the Egyptians—the swarms staying away from the land of Goshen where His people resided. The swarms came upon the Hamites in Egypt, but their slaves went untouched.
Plague 5: The fifth plague was against the domestic animals of Egypt. Horses and cattle were not only beloved but they were also considered sacred. In fact, the Egyptians worshiped many animal-headed gods. For example, the god Apis had a head of a bull and had been worshiped in Egypt since around 3000 BC.Hathor was a cow-headed goddess of the desert, a woman with the head of a cow. She was considered the symbolic mother of Pharaoh himself. Khnum was the ram-god while Bast was the cat goddess of love. Once again, the disease bypassed the herds of cattle belonging to the Israelites.
Plague 6: Against the bodies of the Egyptians, painful boils affected the knees, legs, and the soles of the feet. Because of the boils, Pharaoh’s magicians couldn’t stand. Tainted with the disease themselves, the magicians and the priests were unable to carry out their religious duties. Certainly, this particular plague mocked Serapis, the god of healing, for like leprosy, this disease was incurable. Also, this incurable disease was an affront to Imhotep, the god of medicine and to Thoth, the ibis-headed god of intelligence and medical learning.Plague 7: This wonder must have inspired terror to the hearts of the Egyptians when a great storm occurred in a nation that rarely received any rain at all. Besides rain, the sky poured down both hail and fire.
Where was Shu, the wind god” Where was Nut, the sky goddess? Why couldn’t they protect the land from these horrendous outbreaks that were supposed to be under their command?
Plague 8: Rather than summarize, here is a direct quotation:
“There seems to have been a long interval between some of the earlier plagues, but the eighth followed hard on the seventh. Locusts were brought into the land. It would appear that this was a new thing for Egypt. Locusts have been known in otherplaces, but now the dread scourge of western North Africa and of western Asia was to come into the land of the Nile where it had not been known before. Every grain and twig and leaf that hadescaped the fire and the hail was now taken by the locusts.Where was Nepri, the grain god? Where was Ermutet, goddess of childbirth and crops? Where was Anubis, jackal-headedguardian of the fields? Above all, where was Osiris, great head of the Hamitic trinity, who was also an agricultural god? The people of Egypt lost all faith in their gods.”
Plague 9: The mockery of the great god Ra was saved for last. Believed to be the god of the Sun, there was no sign of Ra when the Almighty God turned off all light. Other gods were not left out. Ptah was believed to have created the moon, but the moon was darkened. Tem was the god of sunset and Shu was the godof sunlight and air. Once more, God made a division between His people and the Egyptians. Though Egypt was dark, God’s people had light in their dwellings.
Plague 10: This one can stand for them all because it was the most memorable, the death of the first born of Egypt, both human and animal. The importance of the firstborn was focused in the right of inheritance because the firstborn received a major portion of a family estate when the father died. So the death of the firstborn crippled a family both legally and emotionally.
The firstborn of God’s people were spared as long as they had blood on their doorposts. Where there was blood on the door, there
was no death in the house and the death angel “passed over” them, a symbol of what the Lord Jesus Christ was to be and to do at the cross, a redemption where, in order to reveal to the universe that the victory over death was complete, the Holy Ghost invaded the very dust of the earth at the Lord’s resurrection and took out a select sample of old testament saints, giving them resurrected bodies. (Matthew 25:51-53)
Complete conquering over death is predicted to occur at the Lord’s second coming to rescue and deliver the rest of His people from the grave, and changing those who are alive from mortality to immortality.  Consequently, I perceive some basic principles that can be gleaned from an exploration of how God delivered His people out of the hands of Pharaoh to understand how He will also deliver the elect out of the hands of the Antichrist when He opens the 7 vial and the 7 seal judgments outlined by the Apostle John in the book of Revelation. These judgments or plagues are listed in the 8th chapter: earthquakes, the sea becomes blood, 1/3 of the creatures of the sea die, 1/3 of the rivers and waters arecontaminated, darkness with 1/3 of the light turned off of the moon, the sun and the stars, locusts that torment the unsaved only for 5 months, 1/3 of men killed by war.
Endtime plagues certainly bear noticeable similarities to the 10 wonders that came upon Egypt, i.e the contamination of water, weather disturbances, death of sea creatures, darkness, and death, with God’s people being protected. The 20th verse of Revelation 9 hits the nail on the proverbial head for those who practice idolatry in end times:
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, silver, brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (Rev. 9:20, 21) When we consider the four horsemen riding on various colored horses, chemical warfare is foreshadowed. (Rev 6:1-8)
The word for “pale” in the Greek is “chloros”, an offshoot of our English word “chemical.” The rider of the pale horse—death—will destroy ¼ of the world’s population. The red horse of war, the black horse of famine and the pale horse of death are obvious. However, who is on the white horse? Some believe him to be Christ. However, I believe that he is the Antichrist, mimicking the true Christ who shall also come on a white horse.(Rev 19:11-16)
We should not be surprised because the Antichrist is seeking to win the world by counterfeiting Jesus and drawing people to worship him and the devil. In fact, it stands to reason that the Antichrist could be a professing Christian himself.
This is what “The New Idolatry” is all about—-how the spirit of the Antichrist has and will continue to delude professing Christians.

Healing: An Endtime Sign of the Anti-Christ

BENJAMIN CREME

 This white-haired sweet, unassuming little man has been the messenger of a high-ranking fallen angel whom I believe fits the biblical description of the antiChrist better than any human being on earth. Since July 1977,Creme claims that a spirit entity manifested in the flesh–a being  Creme calls an ascended master. I got into the kingdom just under the wire, —4 months BEFORE the fallen angel  Maitreya made his first appearance to Benjamin Creme. For 3 decades, Creme, referred to as the John the Baptist of the anti-Christ, has been traveling the globe, telling audiences that the second coming of Christ will not be in the clouds, but that the Christ has been here for 30 years, hiding out in the Himalayas.   A British author, artist, and occult practitioner, Creme has progressively obtained worldwide credibility in high places around the world. Creme claims that the Masters are our elder brothers who have been stimulating and enlightening us since man’s creation. Creme has supported his claim that Maitreya and the other ascended masters are here and ready to solve our most critical problems. Simply put, Creme validates his claims by pointing to various miraculous events that have occurred around the world: ie. statues that weep real tears and blood. In England, holy messages have appeared when housewives cut the vegetables. The seeds are rearranged, spelling out the following message, “Allah is Great. Mohammad is his prophet.”

 Healing waters have also appeared worldwide, as at Tiacote in Mexico, some of the most miraculous cures from cancer, AIDS, warts and boils have allegedly been manifested as miraculous healings. Then there is “the milk miracle” which occurred in the Hindu community, where the milk offered to the gods disappeared, as if the idols actually drank the milk. Creme claims that Maitreya and a group of ascended masters made the milk disappear. The danger for God’s people is that Benjamin Creme is considered the most credible source of information about end time revelations. As for me, I look to the clouds and not to the Himalaya’s, the deserts or any other part of the world to find Jesus. So Beloved, look to the clouds

To learn more, you need the book “the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”

Monarch Mind Control’s Infiltration Into the Institutional Church

Besides Cathy, I have found the work of  various former Illuminati members and Programmers to confirm my belief that the Institutional Church is a dangerous place to be in this hour.  Why?  Well, according to those trained in Monarch Mind control, “slaves” have been dispatched to infiltrate all churches since 1947. All  of what I have learned about all of this came from the prolific articles and books of Cisco Wheeler and Fritz Springmeir. Cisco and I have spoken over the phone as recently as a year ago while some say that Fritz has not been heard from since 1995. Regardless, the body of their work together  is extensive,  yet complicated to the un-informed and extremely   specific as they describe in detail how mind control programming is actually done and for what purposes.  I study the works of these two because they provide me with insights on how to deliver severely demonized people.  However, as I gleaned from their articles for  therapeutic reasons, I was also exposed to information that confirm my belief that the entire institutional church has been infiltrated by mind control slaves and that they are masquerading as bishops, board members, trustees,–Church leaders of every variety, from the laity to the pulpit.

What are the origins of the Monarch mind control? Monarch programming is a mind-control technique comprising elements of Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) and Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) more recently referred to as Dissociative Identity Disorder.. It utilizes a combination of psychology, neuroscience and occult rituals to create within its victims an alter persona that can be triggered and programmed at any time  by his or her handlers called programmers.  Fritz and Cisco were handlers but once they came to Christ, they became defectors from the Illuminati. . Monarch slaves are used by several organizations connected with the world elite in fields such as the military, sex slavery and the entertainment industry.

A slave has been programmed by handlers  through the use of electroshock, torture, abuse and mind games in order to force them to dissociate from reality – a natural response in  some people when then are faced with unbearable pain. The subject’s ability to dissociate is a major requirement and it seems to be most readily found in children that come from families with multiple generations of abuse. Mental dissociation enables the handlers to create walled-off personas in the subject’s soul, which can then be programmed and triggered at will. Slaves carry out assignments and are trained to kill themselves if they are uncovered or caught in the act. What stands out for me is that Fritz and Cisco have reported that countless slaves with altered personalities have infiltrated the Institutional Church. Built into these slaves is the spirit of the Anti-Christ.  The following material is taken from an article called “How The Anti-Christ Spirit Contributes To Controlling the Slave.” located online at http://www.theshiftofconsciousness.info/ciscoandfritz.html

  • The Spirit of the Anti-Christ is presently operating in slaves who are called “the Mothers of Darkness.” These slaves have actually married the Anti-Christ.  Once he comes to power, the alter personalities built into these women will serve the physical Anti-Christ as a private harem. Many Monarch slaves have religious demons built into their alter personalities that cause them to work under the cover of being good, bible-believing Christians.
  • Satan lavishes the spirit of the Anti-Christ (the religious spirit or religious demon) upon his hierarchy. He does not lavish his spirit upon those he views as the rabble of society who do not directly serve him. It is reported that when this particular spirit comes into a person, it comes in  cold and  clammy,   consuming  all hope and joy in life.  Rather than being a fresh breeze bringing forth joy, the spirit of the Anti-Christ is experienced as a rape.  I have recently been working with women who have been spiritually  raped while they were in an altered state of consciousness  through sleep, dreaming, or while astral traveling in a dissociative state.  Some  of my clients have had orgasms that only a few claim to   have enjoyed.  When describing what occurred, most have used  words like  “rape,” “clammy” and “cold.” Each client experiences a sense of being violated by uncleanness. They also become judges of themselves as if they were God Himself.   In my book, the New Idolatry”, I go into detail on this subject. Thanks to Fritz and Cisco,  I now understand the sinister motive behind the increase of evil spirits having sex with professing Christian women. Such acts of   demonic copulation are conducted today in order  to prepare “the Mothers of Darkness” to serve the Anti-Christ when he ascends to global power. His time must be at hand!
  • When programmed multiples go to church, they are used and programmed by Christian terms. Fritz and Cisco report that there are churches in Washington, Arkansas, Tennessee, California and many other places which are 100% cult mind-control operations such as “the Lord’s Chapel.” When a programmed slave tries to set him or herself free by taking in spiritual knowledge of God, they find that the Bible itself will serve as a program trigger, that sets off programming or brings up an alter. There is nothing in the bible that is not used.  Scriptures that lend themselves to double-binds, to obedience, and such— serve as cover stories for the  handlers. For example, a slave can be told that God is telling them to DO something, when the god in this situation is really the cult programmer.
  • It was discovered that astral projection occurs at the point where the body is asleep but the mind is still awake. With the proper triggers, the mind can wander off into the astral or spirit realm where demons and fallen angels have better access to them. To stimulate someone to astral project, they are induced into sleep, and then just as they lose consciousness, the mind is jolted awake with high frequency beta signals.

All of this is quite deep and complicated.  Simply put, what it should say to the least informed who has an average amount of commonsense  is “I think I better stay out of the institutional church!”

If you suspect that you have a religious demon, I recommend you obtain “Faces of the Religious Demon.”  If you need help or you seek deliverance, call 518-477-5759.

The Many Masks of the Spirit of Antichrist

Many have heard of the spirit of Antichrist.  When we hear of this spirit, we think of something openly, blatantly evil, easily recognizable.  We believe that this spirit will announce itself to the world, to the church, much like the wide open forum that President Obama has when he gives the State of the Union address.

This is NOT so.

Because the enemy knows that he was to fool, to deceive, the very elect, that means he has upped the ante on how he manifests himself.  The Word of God states that satan has seat in the institutional church (Revelations 2:13).  We would laugh and joke about sitting in the first lady’s seat or the mother’s seat in the front of the church…but few churchgoers even realize that right in the midst of their ‘holy’ tabernacle, their devout temples, their powerful ministries-replete with many signs and wonders and operations of the gifts of the spirit…that satan has a SEAT…RIGHT THERE!

His seat doesn’t have his name on it, or he would be found out.

His seat exists in the institutional church…no doubt.

WHERE?

I know you have heard a lot of talk on religious spirits.  If you are new to church (as we know it), or if  you’ve been in church for over 40 years, this term may baffle you because you have been taught that – as the song goes ‘Religion SO sweet…’

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.

Yet even the most discerning, the most wise, the most street-wise of us check our brains in at the door of a church once we enter therein.  We erroneously think that we are NOT supposed to use the wisdom and common sense GOD HIMSELF has blessed us with once we walk through the doors of a church.  We erroneously believe that God does NOT deal with our minds at all.  So any inkling deep down in our guts and minds that game is being played we suppress that, thinking that it’s the devil trying to get us ‘out of the ship.’

How do we properly discern a Religious Spirit?

Well, for starters, I want to present to you that after we are born again, we should not check in our brains at the door.  EVERYTHING that God has allowed you to learn-whether it was via books and a teacher, or on the streets, or by life experience-EVERYTHING has been allowed to happen in your life so that you can LEARN A LESSON from it.  The good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful.  We have to learn to not have any regrets…even over mistakes.

Human beings are learning creatures.  From the moment we are born into the earth, until the hour we breathe our last breath, we are supposed to be in a CONSTANT state of learning, and probably re-learning, too.

If your gut tells you something ain’t right, then TRUST YOUR INSTINCT!

A religious spirit knows how to look holy, righteous.  Just by first glance, you can’t tell the difference between a holy person and a religious one.  They will look just like the woman above.

But as time goes on, and you start spending time with that person, you will start to notice inconsistencies.  Certain things just wouldn’t line up.  You will start seeing glaring imperfections and brazen outright sin in their lives…but the more those weeds in their lives manifest, the more they try to COVER IT UP with works of righteousness, more church work, more random acts of kindness to strangers, more religious works.

The more works of religion and righteousness they do, you will begin to notice that their life does not line up with the Word of God.  They will sin and not be convicted of it.  They will not respond to the conviction of the Holy Ghost of sin and justify sin, or be in outright denial about their sinful state.  And the more they do this, the more active they get in the church.  They do more ‘church work,’ hold more revivals, conferences, and convocations, preach harder, prophesy harder…all in an effort to gain their OWN righteousness, to atone for their sins on their own.  Their mindset is ‘If I stay in church enough, that will make up for my fornicating last night,’ or ‘If I do A & B, then that will make up for my dealing drugs at that school…’

The demon starts to manifest by then.  And it looks a little something like this:

By now, the church lady is cussing, drinking, smoking, lying, threatening to cut folks.  When she goes to church, she has her hands upraised.  Praising God, speaking in tongues, running around the church, preaching….the whole nine.  But when you see her in situations that require her to have patience, she has none.  This religious spirit has NO patience.  It wants what it wants, when it wants it!  They gotta preach…NOW!  They gotta prophesy….NOW!  They gotta get married…NOW!  You wanna see if someone has a religious spirit, tell them NO…or WAIT.  If they go off in a tantrum, then you got a religious spirit on your hands!

A religious spirit also is very unaware of the very real fact that they are, too, flawed individuals…with sin.  They swim in a pool of SELF-DENIAL.  They are in self-denial about EVERYTHING.  But the one thing they are in self-denial about is the state of their own selves.

A religious spirit is a potentially dangerous spirit, for there is nothing-NOTHING-a religious spirit WON’T do to protect THEIR IMAGE!  THEIR IMAGE IS EVERYTHING TO THEM!!!  They don’t believe in self-exposure or disclosure.  When they fall into sin, drastic measures are taken to COVER UP their sin.  If the religious spirit is a pastor, he/she will employ the help of the church to participate in the cover up.  They will use fear tactics and mishandle the Word of God to manipulate and control people into doing what THEY want them to do.

A religious spirit NEEDS an entourage.  They need a following.  If they dont have anyone following them, they feel useless, rejected, persecuted even.  This is when a religious spirit-that demonic spirit-will FULLY manifest….right before your eyes!

A religious spirit is a proud one.  It won’t ever admit to being wrong, or doing wrong.

When you have discerned that you are dealing with a religious spirit, the only thing to do is to get away from them.  Because until the person comes into the realization and revelation that they have something DEMONIC that’s driving them to do things in church, or do ministry, or for a good cause, there is nothing that can be done for them.  Religious spirits are SO insidious and subtle that its hard to recognize….at first glance.  It takes TIME to observe a person in all their various atmospheres to determine if they have a religious spirit or not.

In ‘Faces of a Religious Demon’ by Pam Sheppard, many faces of the religious spirit/demon are exposed.  It is one of the most thorough teachings on religious spirits that I have ever read.

“I Need CONFIRMATION!” Part 2

In the last article, I talked about the rite of confirmation in the Catholic Church, as well as the tendency of many within the modern day Protestant church to ‘need confirmation’ or seek a sign after they have heard a word ‘from the Lord.’

Seeing that I’m a history buff, I always like to do my research and study to find out where a thing or tradition originated from, how did it get started.  It is my conviction that when we do that, we will fully understand the SPIRIT behind a thing and proceed accordingly….WITH CAUTION.

In other words, when we know WHY something was started, if the ROOT of it was GODLY or UNGODLY, then we can make an informed and wise decision to NOT follow it or participate in it if we find it started out NOT FROM GOD.

Is ‘needing confirmation,’ ‘seeking after a sign,’ of GOD?

Or is that mindset and all proceeding ceremonies and rites instituted thereafter, a result of RELIGIOUS PROGRAMMING and DECEPTION????

The very first time in the Word of God where a man actually sought a sign from the Lord was in the book of Judges. (Yes, there were times when God spoke to the Israelites with signs and wonders, delivered them by such.  But Gideon is the first account where a man asked God to ‘show him a sign.”)

We are all familiar with the story of Gideon.

The story is found in Judges 6.  The setting is starting from about Judges the first chapter, Joshua and the generation who remembered what God had done for the Israelites in the wilderness before they reached their promised land had died out.  One of the last things God commanded the Israelites to NOT do is to forget the precepts of God, to intermarry with unbelievers and to worship their gods.  Yet, after God gave them ‘their promise,’ that is EXACTLY what the Israelites did.  Read Judges 1-3 to understand just where Israel was before Gideon was born.  They were in rebellion and disobedience.  They had forgotten God and all that He had done for them.  They got the bling, the power, the fame and the very allegiance they promised God in the wilderness they gave it to other gods and allowed themselves to ‘fall in love’ with-and intermarry-with unbelievers.

In the 6th chapther of Judges, God has given the Israelites over to the Midianites.  After hearing their cries for help, God calls Gideon as their deliverer-calling him a ‘mighty man of valor’ in vs. 12. Instead of responding in faith, believing what God has said, what was Gideon’s response?

“…If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me….” vs. 17

The Lord God ‘confirms’ His Word with a supernatural sign in vs. 21.

Then Gideon LACKED FAITH and TRUST in God again, seeking TWO more signs from God in vs. 36-40, signs that God wanted him to do what He said.

Now, we often make Gideon out to be this great man of faith and valor, taking the scripture completely out of context.  What we fail to realize is that God had already chided Israel because in spite of His MANY signs, wonders and deliverance(s) to Israel, Israel STILL went awhoring after other gods, STILL walked in blatant disobedience and rebellion to the things of God and STILL worshipped other gods.

Because God is long-suffering and merciful, He granted ‘confirmations’ here.  He sent signs and wonders…to confirm His word to His people…THEN.

But NOW?

God is NO LONGER sending signs and wonders for the purpose of feeding the faith of those who profess to be believers in Him.  God has a proven track record of HIS Faithfulness to man.  He does NOT need to confirm or prove ANYTHING to us.

We simply need to take heed to HIS WORD, trust implicitly in HIM, and NOT seek after signs and confirmations.

We hear preachers preach on the 10 plagues in Egypt.  We hear preachers preach on ‘these signs shall follow them that believe…’ We hear modern day apostles taut that they are supposed to have signs and wonders following them.

Well, I present to you that those who seek after signs and wonders are WICKED and EVIL.

Matthew 16:4
A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it

The Word here actually calls this generation ‘adulterous.’  Why?  Because seeking after signs is a form of idolatry!  And God sees idolatry as spiritual adultery.  Without FAITH, it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God.  When God speaks TO US, we simply must believe it, and act it out accordingly…(of course, trying the spirit is totally different than seeking a sign. God tells us to try the spirits, yes.  But He actually grows weary of people who seek a sign…)

Mark 8:11-12

And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.

It greatly displeases God when we keep asking for a sign.  Or even when we entertain ‘confirmations’ of words heard in the spirit merely by events that happen to occur, supernatural manifestations, prophecies, and the such.

Do you see where the Word says that God will NOT be giving signs to this generation?

God does not want us so caught up in signs, confirmations, miracles and the such in this hour.  We MUST understand that the enemy of our souls can perform signs, miracles and wonders, too.  The enemy can prophesy…ACCURATELY.  The enemy can raise folks from the dead, heal the sick, and the whole nine.  He got ALL kinds of tricks in his bag.  And he is waiting to pull one out JUST ON YOU, if you keep your spirit open to all kinds of confirmations…seeking a word…seeking a sign…stalking prophets and such.

That spirit of unbelief occurs in a people when they walk away from God in disobedience and rebellion to Him.  In sin, one cannot hear the voice of God.  NOT AT ALL.  So therefore, they have to rely on OTHERS to hear FOR THEM!

Whenever you find someone who cannot hear from God, who are always seeking a word, a sign, running from conference to conference, looking for that next prophetic ‘fix,’ they are in sin in some area of their lives.  SIN IS THE ONLY THING THAT SEPARATES US FROM GOD!

Another reason is that that person is IMPATIENT…which speaks to a LACK OF FAITH.

Faith requires you, at times, to WAIT ON THE LORD for an answer.  When we try to ‘make things happen’ in our own strength, in our own time, then that shows we don’t trust God the way that we should.  So we go about trying to help God out…when HE DOES NOT need our help!

One of the gravest errors of the Word of Faithers is that they believe that if they merely ‘utter the Word of God back to God,’ then He is somehow ‘obligated’ to do their bidding, whether it be money, a mate, a job, a ministry, etc.

But when God does not grant them ‘the desires of their hearts,’ then they go about seeking signs and wonders to ‘feed their faith’ in a false word.  And religious spirits LOVE to feed false words!  Religious spirits will feed one’s ‘faith’ in a word THEY believe it true ALL day, ALL year long!  By dreams, signs, wonders, prophecies, sermons, by ANYTHING they feel will keep them deluded and deceived.

Do you remember the movie, “Bruce Almighty,” in one scene after Bruce gets God’s powers, him and Grace, his girlfriend, has broken up.  He thought because he had God’s powers now that he could make Grace love him and take him back.  But he finds out he cannot.

So in an attempt to win Grace back, Bruce uses his newfound, supernatural abilities to create all kinds of signs and wonders around her that hopefully will point to her taking Bruce back.  The ‘Bruce & Grace Forever’ carved on every tree stump she passes on a morning jog.  The numerous TV commercials that play messages that encourages Grace to take Bruce back.  Their dog who gives Grace the phone and encourages her to call Bruce!

That is much how a religious spirit operates.

EVERYTHING around you will seem to point towards ‘what God said’ or ‘what God promised.’  You think, ‘I mean SURELY, if ALL of these signs are pointing towards this, this MUST be God, right?’

I know what you’re thinking: ‘But hey! In the movie, Bruce and Grace DOES get back together..’  Yes. But that was NOT because of Bruce’s supernatural manipulations and control, trying to ‘make’ Grace take him back.  It had to be her choice.  Anything other than that would have been nothing more than witchcraft…and if the reconciliation began out of witchcraft, it would only be maintained by witchcraft as well.

I go into all this to help you realize one thing.

When we ask God to show us a sign, we are actually trying to control and manipulate Him, attempting to relegate God to be nothing more than our Magician, to do our bidding whenever WE want.  Most of the time, when people seek after signs and wonders, it is out of an unhealthy desire within them for control and power.  Two very powerful yet dangerous entities when combined without the Holy Ghost to temper them both.

And people who seek ultimate power and control REALLY not only lack faith in God, but are weak, and feel powerless over their situations and circumstances.  Instead of trusting God, they trust in their control of things.  This is another form of self-righteousness that nullifies the work of the Cross AND the power of the resurrection in our lives.

And any spirit that does NOT embrace AND confess that the resurrection of Christ is legitimate is of the AntiChrist. (1 John 4:2-3)

We must also be aware that the Antichrist WILL perform signs and wonders.  This is how he will be able to get so many people to follow him. (Revelations 13:13-14)

If you are ‘addicted’ to signs, wonders and confirmations, it is time to get ‘detoxed’ from them, FOR REAL!  Continuing to seek after them can cost you your life!

I encourage those who love God to TRUST the voice of God speaking to you.  Try the spirit and see if it is of God.  ALWAYS.
