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

The Foolishness oPreaching...

I couldn’t agree with Pam more…

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

This is a question each preacher needs to ask themselves:

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

My updated corrections are in parenthesis:

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

1 Corinthians 1:18-21

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

 Preaching…

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

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

 Ephesians 5:19

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

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

Colossians 3:16

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

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

 Ministers, fellow laborers…

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

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

“And the Lord say…HA!

“Repent for the Kingdom of God…HA!

“..is at hand….HA!”

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

“…that’s not my key!…”

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

The organist complied and took the key up one notch!

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s be real about it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Do ur homework…

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

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

Cindy Trimm Prays to the Spirit of Ashtar???

By Pamela Sheppard

THE FAKE JESUS:  Fallen Angels Among Us

It was this video clip that birthed the book “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”  I’m not sure, but I suspect the year was 2006.  I had recently heard a voice say to me that the entire organized church was akin to a condemned, boarded up dwelling and that the Holy Ghost had vacated it. As a pastor for 25 years at the time,  I was truly  hoping that the message I had received was not from God.  So I decided to take a year and do some research.  I was about to begin by studying church history, when I watched this particular video.

At that point, I had never heard of Dr. Cindy Trimm so I watched the video without any preconceived perceptions of  her ministry.

 When the clip reached the 2 minute and 42 second point, my book “the Fake Jesus” was conceived, for it was at that exact moment that I heard Dr. Trimm “declare,” I THANK YOU FATHER THAT THE SPIRIT OF THE ASHTAR HAS FALLEN UPON THE PEOPLE as the people were falling slain in the spirit like ocean waves across the entire building where the congregation was assembled.

Astar? That sounded familiar.  I first went to my bible and found Ashtoreth, an old testament idol. Once I googled the name “Astar,”  Google  corrected my spelling  to ASHTAR. Beyond a doubt,  I was in a state of shock.  For the door to aliens, ascended masters, and fallen angels imitating our Lord  flung wide open. All because of the 2:42 slide of this video.

This is only one manifestation of Ashtar. He also appears as an alien.

Leave Church: Why? Part 2

As I pointed out in Part 1, when I was led out of a denomination as an active pastor, I expected to be sent to another church affiliation.  So I waited.  I waited 3 years when I heard a voice say to me that “He had already judged the church and that the Holy Ghost war not there any longer. In fact, I was also informed that the Holy Ghost had left the church BEFORE I ARRIVED IN 1979!

That was another major shock.  I did not want to believe that who I had heard from was the Lord. So I began with the premise that I had heard from the devil.  The choice was easy.  Either God or the devil.It was definitely not my own soul who  spoke to me.You see,   I had become addicted to church and I did not want to go through a sudden, un-planned detox.  I had also become habituated to preaching and pastoring a congregation.  so a cold turkey withdrawal from the organized church system was too much, even for a vivid imagination like mine to conceive.

So to try the spirits to see if they be of God, I decided to study church history. I figured if the Holy Ghost had left the church, signs would be evident somewhere in 2000 years of church history. Then something happened that added to my investigation.  As I watched a video clip of a worship service led by evangelist Cindy Trimm, as hundreds fell slain like ocean waves, Trimm proclaimed “I thank you Father, that the spirit of Ashtar has fallen upon the people.”

Ashtar? Who is Ashtar?  He sounded vaguely familiar to me  from the old testament. There was a god, a fallen angel I remembered  named Ashtaroth. So I began to google and to google some more and I found the being who calls himself “Ashtar” to new age occultists. I learned that Ashtar reports to yet another fallen angel who is known as Jesus Sananda Immanuel.  I continued to study and I discovered that Sananda reports to a being called Maitreya. Maitreya’s rhetoric as channeled through various psychic mediums  read a lot like the Anti-Christ.

My studies and notes  turned into 220 pages, the book  “the Fake Jesus:Fallen Angels Among Us.” ( ebook www.lulu.com/content/12044954  and the soft cover www.lulu.com/content/2716532)  In a nut shell, besides studying church history, I reviewed the writings communicated to various occult channels via fallen angels.I tried the spirits for ONE whole year. Once the project was completed, I came to an un-deniable conclusion.  II had heard from the Lord.  The organized church is in the same condition as a boarded up, inner city condemned building. The Holy Ghost is NOT there

.
Satan began to progressively establish a seat within church divisions, sects and organization since the organization of the church in the third century.If you are born again and you still attend church, the Holy Ghost will speak to you.  He may use a written blog or a book, a dream, whatever.  He may use hypocrites and haters to run you out.  If you are in the church and you have had a false conversion, if you are one of the elect, the enemy is waving a license to keep you in God’s face.  The fake Jesus stands on his rights because YOU invited him to come into you  when you repeated a sinner’s prayer, “accepted” Jesus and invited him into your heart. Sananda is the one you are worshiping.  He did not lie to his occult followers when he told them that he is in control of the organized Christian Church.

I heard from God.  That is enough to keep me out of the organized church.

 Perhaps my testimony is not enough for YOU.  That is okay.  I am assured if you belong to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Holy Spirit will speak to you and lead you out. You may have to stand alone as I stand. Believe me, Beloved. It is not so bad on my side or from  my viewpoint. If I am wrong, He will correct me.  This is my faith.  I stand on it.
