Why the Sinners Prayer Led to the Great Falling Away

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

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

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

 

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

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

 

 

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

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

Charles Finney

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

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

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

Maitreya and Sananda as the Antichrist and the False Prophet

Pastor Pam Sheppard wrote:

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.

Why Reincarnation?

Pastor Pam Sheppard wrote:

reincarnation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Born Again? Or Are You Following Sananda? By Pam Sheppard

The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth asked an interesting question.  How many believers would He find on earth when He returns.. The rhetorical answer can be inferred to be  “not many.” Why?  Because of false conversions.

A false conversion occurs in the following instances:

1.  A person makes a decision to “accept” Jesus and then ends up boasting, “I am saved because I chose to follow Jesus.”  Often this person has repeated a sinner’s prayer or responded to a minister’s invitation to “walk forward” at the close of the sermon.  There is also no evidence of repentance.  Nor is their evidence  that the believer understood either the cross or the resurrection of Jesus Christ at the time of the alleged salvation experience.

2. A person assumes because his or her family are professing, churchgoing Christians, and since he or she has attended church from birth, that he or
she is “saved.”

3. A Charismatic/Pentecostal person has sought the Holy Ghost through the manifestation of the speaking in tongues.  Since the believer actually had a “tongue manifestation,” an assumption is made that the person is saved.

What I have uncovered through deliverance counseling, is this.

cover_the fake Jesus_new

When a counterfeit birth has taken place, the devil steps in, represented by a fallen angel who now calls himself “Jesus Sananda Immanuel.”  You can either obtain a copy of my book, “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” or google with Sananda’s name, and you will find that Sananda claims that he has infiltrated the entire organized church. Consequently, when prayers and worship are offered, it is Sananda, and not Jesus Christ of Nazareth who is unknowingly appealed to.  So in other words, the believer is actually practicing idolatry without realizing what has occurred and who he or she is worshiping.

If I were a betting person, I would put all of my savings on the expectation that 90% of the people who sincerely believe that they are born again fall in one of the three categories cited. Yet there is a fourth category. It includes those who have had supernatural experiences which included sin, the cross, godly sorrow with the bodily resurrection of the Lord either minimized, assumed, or not a part of the experience AT All.  This category adds another 5% to those who have had a false conversion.  The other 5 % were born again BEFORE they went to church, either in their homes, at an airport, etc. 

256x256_fit_one_bestfit (69)My point is: THEY DID NOT BECOME BORN AGAIN INSIDE A CHURCH.  If they believe they did, then they are deceived. 

How many of the people who have had a false conversion are of the elect of God?  I don’t know.  I suspect between 25-75%.  The rest are damned anyway because God did not choose them.

Examining whether or not YOU are in the faith is scriptural.  So check out II Cor 13:5.  If you want help with this very important task, fill out the contact form below.  Provide a detailed description of  the day you believe you got born again in the comment box.

The Importance of the Resurrection to Salvation

How We Set Captives FREE at SCC

The main objective of Christian counseling is to set captives free.

At Sheppard’ Counseling Center, the most important tool in the process is actually  the captive.  For example, if during the assessment process, the captive reveals that his or her faith is weak, or that there are major issues of doubt and un-belief, then a major objective of the assessment phase would be to build up the client’s faith.  The treatment plan  lists the problems, hindrances in the situation, the goals, objectives and the strategies toward building the captive’s faith.  We also consider whether or not the captive has a strong network system of Christian elders who can support the captive. Therefore, we employ a cadre of mentors or “ministers” for support and encouragement.

The Christian client today is one who has been duped by the organize church into easy believism. They have repeated a sinner’s prayer, acknowledged that they have accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts, and declared to be saved or born again.  What has happened is that the fake Jesus answered their invitation. They have worshipped Him through prayer meetings, bible studies, song and dance, yet they are not saved.  They don’t know it but the enemy DOES. Therefore, the weapons of spiritual warfare do not work for them.

Without the weapons that redemption affords: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the girdles of truth, the feet shod with the gospel of peace and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, the captive has to rely on a Christian counselor or minister who is truly saved—one who can successfully work the spiritual weapons against principalities and powers.

Even so, we have found that the captives’ free will is their best weapon.  So in deliverance counseling and mentoring, we encourage the captive to fight in cold blood.  From a Christian perspective, our role is akin to a trainer who prepares  a prizefighter for a boxing match.  As spiritual trainers, we are in the captive’s corner, giving specific instructions as to how to win the fight. The captive takes our instructions, does all that he or she can do, and when the time is right, we step in and finish the fight by casting out demons and commanding fallen angels to go about somebody elses business.

It has been our experience, that until captives use their own free will to revoke the invitation that they made to the fake Jesus, their psychic doorways or chakras will remain open, and demons will have unhindered access to their souls and spirits.  So we focus on closing those gateways by truth.  If the captive does not fight the process, victory is assured.

Since December 2002, we have discovered an astounding statistic.  At least 95% of the churchgoing captives  of Sheppard’s Counseling Center–about 300 professing Christians— did not understand either sin, repentance or the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. They do not know that they received the fake Jesus.

Consequently, they worship whom they do not know.

This is an extremely appalling, pervasive condition, of epidemic proportions within the worldwide church.  Since we have counseled people in Australia, South Africa, England, Japan, Canada, the Caribbean and from at least 1/3 of the United States, the problem is the same.  An imposter god is being worshipped as if he is the Lord Almighty.  No wonder Jesus warned that in there would be people who would call Him “Lord,” and He will say “I NEVER knew you.”

As you read “Faces of the Religious Demon, you will find that each face or profile offers new insights and challenges.  You the reader will learn how any ground obtained by spirit entities , no matter how small or seemingly insignificant is “GROUND POSSESSED,” even though a captive himself may have no obvious manifestation of total possession.  Your eyes will also be opened to realize that even the slightest of ground claimed by the enemy can be so debilitating and even toxic to spiritual growth and empowerment, what is the point of quibbling over terms and inches?!” For if a demon has only one inch of territory, it will seem like a mile to a tormented captives.

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

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

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

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

                                                                                                       

There Are Plagues in the Institutional Church

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

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

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

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

THE REAL GOSPEL…YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

In this video, Pamela Sheppard breaks down the gospel in such a simplistic manner, I really do believe that a child could understand it!

I encourage you to not be afraid to examine yourself-no matter where you are in your walk with Christ Jesus-and see if you truly be in the faith.

It was the teaching on ‘Counterfeit Births’ that let me know that God was speaking and teaching through Pam.  A few months ago, on Facebook, I wrote an article on ‘Illegitimate Birthings.’  I had never heard of Pamela Sheppard or this ministry.  I had never seen or heard ANYONE teach on this.  This revelation was purely BY WAY OF THE HOLY GHOST!

We all need to take heed to what the Spirit of God is saying about births that are NOT of Him (and trust me, there are PLENTY out there!)

Leaving Church In Endtimes Aint Easy! Part 1

It is certainly not easy to leave the organized church, even when you have been spiritually abused by her.  This is part one of a series of videos—a testimony shared by a minister of 30 years whom the Lord led out. The full testimony of Rev. Pamela Sheppard can be found in her profound and enlightening book “Come Out of Her, God’s People: Don’t Receive Her Plagues.”

Leaving Church in Endtimes Aint Easy!

When Pastor Pam Sheppard  was led out of the Denomination she was ordained in and served in for 25 years, she waited  3 years for the Lord to show her where to go to resume her ministry. She had no idea  the Lord had no intentions to have her ever  be a part of the organized  church service again, until He spoke to her in 2007. While Pam waited, she wrote 3 books. After the Lord spoke, she wrote 4 more books and has begun to publish other authors.  Her first new author is Wenona Russ, the author of the e-book “The Makings of a False Prophet.

The Spirit of the AntiChrist, Deception and Sin

CAN A BORN AGAIN PERSON SIN?

According to the Apostle John in I John 3: 9, the answer to that question is “NO!” The scripture reads: “Whosoever is born of God doth not sin; for his seed remaineth in him; and he CANNOT sin, because he is born of God.” Yet, John also wrote in the first chapter of his epistle that “if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us of ALL unrighteousness.” (I John 1:7-9)

John certainly seems to be contradicting himself on this subject of whether or not a born again person CAN or is ABLE to sin, BUT HE IS NOT. In the first chapter, I believe that John is saying that if a person sins, but then says he has not sinned,—in other words, deceives himself by rationalizing his behavior—then the truth is not in him because he has grieved the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth. Once the sinning Christian comes to his senses, the thing for him to do is to confess it, and he or she will be both forgiven and cleansed. What Chapter 3 suggests is that since a born again believer CANNOT sin, the only way he CAN, IS TO DECEIVE HIMSELF!!!!

Of one thing I am sure. I am born again. Of another thing I am sure. In 34 years as a Christian, I have sinned. So I know full well that a born again person CAN sin. When I look on those occasions where I sinned, deception was key. The only way that I could sin was “to deceive myself.” In each case, I convinced myself that God was in accord with my behavior. Therefore, I was out of touch with my spirit, where the seed is. That “seed” is the Holy Ghost. I grieved and quenched the Holy Ghost and consequently, I had no conviction because I believed that I was right. It is not built into my personality to receive accusation and to convict myself, so the enemy rarely accuses me of anything because it does not work.

One of the ways to make sure that we overcome sin is to learn how to discern the difference between the rebuke of your own conscience as led by the Holy Ghost from the accusation of the religious demon that is assigned to you.

Click book cover for ebook, title link for paperback

I have a religious demon assigned to me. The day I preached my trial sermon, a picture was taken of me in the church, posing beside the piano. Standing to my left, you can see a huge head of a gargoyle, outlined in green. Anyone who desires to see that picture, let me know. So I have seen the religious fallen angel that is assigned to me. However, for years, I convinced myself that the evil looking entity in the photo was the church’s demon and that it was not in the picture because of me. No, it is assigned to me. I suspect that you have one assigned to you also. In the book “Faces of the Religious Demon,” the many facets of this clever entity is exposed, case by case.

Anyway, learning how to differentiate between the reprimand of the Holy Spirit and the accusation of the evil spirit assigned to us is a key factor in overcoming sin. Since there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, if accusation persists once a born again believer has repented, it is NOT the Holy Ghost. He never reproves further, once the sin is cleansed by the precious blood because you have forsaken it.

According to Watchman Nee in “the Spiritual Man,” born again persons commit fatal blunders when we think that because we are saved, our spirits can only be controlled by the Holy Ghost and not ALSO by the enemy. (pg 57) The Holy Ghost is a helper, not a controller. Once He is either quenched or grieved, He will “back off.” When He retreats, the enemy comes in full force with counterfeits of His presence. This is why so many true believers remain in sin for too long. Actually, the practice of the sin of spiritual fornication, aka idolatry—goes un-noticed, with the believer completely unaware of his or her spiritual condition.

In fact, I found it a lot easier to overcome physical fornication than spiritual fornication. I believe that every committed churchgoer is a spiritual fornicator.  My spiritual fornication endured and dominated most of my “born again” life for more than two decades. In this regard, I am certainly not alone. However, I am among the very few who have been un-deceived.

And why IS that?

Well, my self deception began to gradually fade away due to the book, “War on the Saints,” by Jessie Penn Lewis. I read it and “I saw my charismatic, religious self.” But it took time regarding my pet spiritual fallacies. I reasoned, “Jessie can’t be right about this or about that! Then one day, I caught the deceiver in a lie. My eyes started to open. So I prayed, “Lord, if there is any darkness around me, please expose it.” In days, all hell began to periodically break loose. Yet, with each un-veiling, I became increasingly “un-deceived,” as my spiritual house came tumbling down like a row of stacked dominoes.

When the Holy Ghost is unable to rebuke us in our spirits because of our self deception, the demons assigned to us begin to toss us about, to and fro. The enemy takes much pleasure in mocking God’s people. I can remember how I found myself mocked in every sphere, from finances to family, from friends to foe, from fallacy to faith, the demons assigned to me had themselves a good ole time! Yet once I asked the Lord to “show me the darkness,” I ended up putting the demons on the run!

I’ll end this article  with the first statement and the first step to becoming a believer who “cannot sin.”

STATEMENT #1 Born again believers CANNOT sin until we FIRST submit ourselves to self deception.

Step #1 Go to the Father and sincerely ask Him in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth:,

“Lord, if there is any darkness around me, please expose it.”

If you are sincere, get ready for a wake-up call that will knock your spiritual socks off!!!
