Deliverance Depends Upon YOU…

Many in the organized church have their preconceived notions when it comes to deliverance.  They have been to this deliverance team and that deliverance ministry.  They have prayed this deliverance prayer from that website.  They have fasted and prayed and went to the altar hundreds of times, seeking deliverance.

Some have even began to trust in the teachings and doctrines of famous preachers on spiritual warfare and deliverance-even though over the test of time, it has been found that those very teachings and doctrines from those famous preachers have proven ineffective…in the long run.

Many have went to this conference that promises you to be ‘loosed’ and that conference on spiritual warfare….only to leave still dealing with the same demons.

I know.  I used to be one of the main ones…

That was until I began to wise up and realize that all of the prior ‘deliverance’ ministries, preachers, teachings, websites, books, CDs and DVDs, etc. weren’t working.

So I started digging into the Word of God for myself.  I started allowing the HOLY GHOST to lead me…and He led me to Sheppard’s Counseling Center.  Pam and her dedicated team of ministers helped me to ‘get my power back.’

This ministry is not for super spooky folks who are too proud to admit that years of erroneous religious indoctrination and brainwashing – even by the most famous of ministers and ministries – have been PROVEN to be ineffective.  Its not for people who hold onto prior pentecostal and charismatic dogmas like a pitbull, unwilling to even examine themseslves AND the whole movement to see if it and they are of God or not.  SCC is not for people who are too religious to be wrong.

If this describes you, SCC won’t help you.  There are some things GOD HIMSELF are going to have to show you.

But if you don’t care about none of that…and are willing to go for broke and lay down EVERYTHING you have ever THOUGHT and BEEN TAUGHT about deliverance…to be TRULY delivered….to TRULY get your power back…and to gain skills to MAINTAIN your deliverance, then give us a call at  518-477-5759.

Deliverance: What You Don’t Know CAN Kill You!

You heard it here first!

I know out of all the deliverance ministries, deliverance sessions, exorcisms, etc. that you have sought out trying to get free, you have NEVER heard the truth about DELIVERANCE told like this.

I encourage ANYONE who is seeking deliverance to purchase Pamela Sheppard’s book ‘Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry.’  

What you THOUGHT was a deliverance ministry was nothing more than a gateway to your soul set by the enemy to gain a stronghold in your life.

Don’t beat yourself up;  we in the pentecostal and charismatic…even non demoninational churches have ALL been there, done that.

People are truly destroyed for the LACK of knowledge.  What you DON’T know about these deliverance ministries out here CAN kill you!

Arm yourself with knowledge…and purchase your copy TODAY!

The Church Exodus, Part 3

A FORMER PASTOR WARNS: LEAVE THE CHURCH! Part 3

By Pam Sheppard

I started out for 33 years of life an atheist. In 33 years, I attended church just ONE day in my life.   Once I had a ‘Damascus Road” type of experience with the Lord, I was sold out for Him.  And it was two years—1979–before I attended any church.  I went because I had 3 consecutive dreams of a local pastor, and all 3 dreams urged me to find this man, the late Rev. Lester.  (not his real name.) Not once in more than 25 years did I ever consider that it was NOT God who sent me those dreams.  I didn’t find out until AFTER I had finished my 4th book, “the Fake Jesus:Fallen Angels Among Us.”  How did I find out?  The Lord spoke to me and  quietly  said, “I did not send you those 3 dreams that sent you to that church.”  Simple.

Why did He wait so long to tell me this?  Well, I never asked Him.  I kinda “knew” without asking.  I needed to know the depth of perversion and depravity the organized church system actually is “from inside.”  You might say, “I was a spy.” I was never really a part of the system because the demons in it recognized that I was a spy before I actually knew it myself.  The Lord allowed a messenger of Satan to give me 3 dreams and several confirming signs that I was supposed to be there.  I was a church person for 25 years, in ministry about two years after I  first arrived.  I was in a denomination where several churches in a region are “connected.”  So I got to know about 100 ministers, about 10 percent of them as close regional associates.

Well, I knew it was depraved from the beginning.  My first pastor was a closet homosexual who also practiced a Caribbean form of witchcraft called “obeah.” He was one of the first to die of AIDS in the early 80’s.  Most of the ministerial elders that I had to submit my ministry to were depraved.  Thieves, drug abusers, fornicators, homosexuals, child abusers, you name it, undercover and sometimes openly, they did it.

I stayed as long as I did because the religious demon assigned to me played  a convincing game to prove that  God had me in the system to cause the system to repent.  So I was on my knees, sobbing, wailing and travailing for 25 years.  When things only got worst, commonsense should have told me, “Hey Pam, Don’t you “get it?” God is not answering your prayers in this matter. Why can’t you ‘figure it out?’ If God has not answered your prayers for repentance for 25 years, perhaps it is because “the time of repentance is over.  It just ain’t goin to happen, Gurl!!! Get up off your knees!”

I was pretty comfortable in the denomination in 2003.  I had started my own church and I kept my self separated from the religious politics, and the Bishop did not particularly care WHAT I was doing.  He treated me like I didn’t exist, and that worked well for me.  Then one day, the Lord spoke to me in a dream.  He showed me that “it was time to go.” He said “but let them PUT you out.”  Since I was not in any kind of trouble with the upper echelon, it seemed implausible that they would put me out.  Well 9 months from the dream, my name was removed from the denominations rolls.

Once out, I devoted myself to my online ministry which had begun in 2002 and to the church that I had founded in 1996. From 2004-2007, I waited for the Lord to send me to a different denomination, with my eyes on Full Gospel, non denominational groups.  It didn’t happen.  Then in 2007,  the Holy Ghost spoke again.  He compared the organized church to an inner city condemned building.  In short, He said “I’ve judged it already and I am no longer there.”

I said to myself “this COULD be the devil. It was too incredulous for me to believe that the Holy Ghost was not in the church.  I was in a state of shock.   So I tried the spirits through the study of church history for one year.  After that year, I knew I had heard from the Holy Ghost.  He is NOT there.

Since God is not there, no point in ME being there either!

The Church Exodus, Part 2

“Should I?  Shouldn’t I?  Can I CHANGE the church…thru my prayers?”

By Pam Sheppard

When I left the church in 2004, I did not know that it was a permanent move.  I expected that the Lord would lead me to another church affiliation.  I had my eye on Rev. Paul Morton’s organization, the full gospel Baptist.  It seemed a great choice for me because I had been  ordained and served in a denominational church  very compatible with  the Baptists, yet I was also a Pentecostal in orientation, belief and practice.

So when 3 years passed and I did not have a leading to join another church, I wondered why. It didn’t take long for me to be answered once I sought the Lord in prayer.  In less than a week, a kind of telepathic communication took place to let me know that I was not to join any organized church.

I was spoken to in a kind of parable.  I was asked, “Pam, would you put curtains up at the windows of a condemned building.” I thought of all of the condemned buildings I had seen growing up in the inner city.  I answered in my mind. “No, I would not.”

Then came a kind of speech that went something like this.

“A homeless person will make a home in a condemned building.  To escape the elements of the weather on the outside, he will satisfy himself and “make do” with no heat, no running water, no lights, and he will share his dwelling with its occupants: the rats and the roaches.”

Then I was hit in the face with the next outrageous statement.

“If you try to edify the organized church with seminars and conferences, you will be putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building.”

Wow.  I was stunned. I had already begun to conduct deliverance seminars with the first one in Bermuda and the second one in Lawrenceville Ga. I was planning the third when this spiritual conversation transpired.    Metaphorically speaking, it was clear to me that the condemned building was a symbol of the entire organized church.  If this “strange conversation” was from the Holy Spirit—then the metaphor clearly suggested that the organized church is condemned, in other words, judged already.

In keeping with this parable of sorts, sheep who attend church regularly are those who are afraid of the outside elements of a dangerous and sinful world—and rightly so. Therefore, it makes sense to run inside of church walls for protection.  Yet in keeping with the symbols, when churchgoers run inside, what they find is no light.  God is light.  In Him there is no darkness at all.  No light–No “God!!!  The “voice” went on to say that the rats were the pastors and church leaders and the roaches were those who sat on the pews.

No running water in the condemned building means no rivers of living water, No Holy Spirit.  No heat.  No fires of the Holy Spirit. This parable was clearly saying that the Holy Spirit has left the organized church.

I didn’t want to believe that I had heard from God about this.  I was pastoring a church that I myself had founded in 1996 and I did not want to close it down.  However, I knew that if this was God speaking to me, I MUST close it down.

A Sign of False (Or Ineffective) Ministry….

We all have come in contact with a ministry that we later on deemed as ‘ineffective.’  For those who still attend church…It may have been a church we visited once or a few times.  Or a church where we had ‘membership.’

We may have encountered ineffective ministry at a conference we paid big bucks to attend, had planned on it for about a year.

Or we ran across a prayer partner whose prayer just ‘hit the ceiling above us’ and seemed to have NOT reached the ears of God.

Wherever we were, whenever we came across ‘ineffective’ ministry, we walked away from it feeling worse than what we had when we walked TO it!

I have had this experience on SEVERAL occasions. I would go to ‘church’ feeling fine, just going because I had made a habit of ‘going to church.’  There was no crisis going on in my life that compelled me to ‘come into the house of the Lord.’  All was well…

Then after I left the service, I (or one of my children), would take ill, have headaches or bodyaches and a spirit of confusion and strife would hit my house.

I was ALWAYS baffled by this.  I would say to myself ‘HOLD UP!  I’m supposed to feel better AFTER I leave church, right?’

I would sing ‘The Presence of the Lord is Here’ by Byron Cage at church, but it would be quite obvious that the presence of the Lord HAD NOT been there!  If in HIS PRESENCE is FULLNESS of joy, then why was I filled with so much dread and confusion-even pain-after leaving that house?

God reveals things to me as I write.  As I was writing something else this morning, He began to speak and tell me a sure-fire way of knowing you have come in contact with ineffective ministry…i.e. a false prophet, or apostle, etc.

One of the ways we can KNOW that we are part of an ineffective ministry is by watching, carefully observing, WHAT THAT MINISTRY FOCUSES ON THE MOST.

We are living in a day and time where there are more what I call ‘fragmented’ ministry. What I mean by fragmented ministry is a ministry whose whole agenda is to minister to you ONE aspect of truth.  They key in on one thing in the Word, one promise, etc., and they run and build a WHOLE ministry off that ONE revelation, that ONE truth.

For example, deliverance ministries are on the rise.  Deliverance ministries focus in on getting folks ‘delivered.’ There are several ministries that exist today where the word ‘deliverance’ is actually in the name of the ministry.  Their ENTIRE focus is to get folks delivered.  Not salvation.  Not healing.  Not teaching.  I imagine when you walk into these ‘ministries,’ there are nothing but buckets and sheets all over the place….ready just in case someone has to puke up a demon right during offering!

There are ministries that focus only on prosperity.  Some only on healing.  Some boast of being strictly a ‘word’ church, or ‘teaching’ church.

When you come across ministries that key in on one aspect of a thing, I can almost GUARANTEE that they are ineffective.

You see, the reason is because the enemy does NOT need to be 100% false to be false.  You can have someone with 4% truth and 96% error have a ministry.  They can operate in all kinds of sensational, flesh-pleasing gifts.  The crowds come in, in awe of it all.

Yet, the question is not how sensational or flesh-pleasing the gifts are…or even if one operates in those gifts.  The proof isn’t in how many attend a ministry.  The proof isn’t even in how well the leaders operate in those gifts, neither who endorses their gifts or ministry.

The question at the end of the day is WHO IS EFFECTIVE?  ARE PEOPLE GETTING SAVED…AND DELIVERED?  AND HEALED?  AND PROSPERING (THE RIGHT WAY?)

When you come across a ministry that pushes (or markets) one gift, one teaching, one aspect of truth, more than others in their ministry, it is because that is where their strength lies, so they have to ‘push it.’ To cover up the error that is there, too.

About five years ago, I wrote in another blog an article entitled ‘Why Stop At Deliverance?’ Here is an excerpt:

“… there are so many churches that are opened up just based upon deliverance alone. People stop at deliverance. They get so caught up in deliverance, in healing, in prosperity. They don’t realize that it doesn’t end there.

When the Israelites were in bondage in Egypt, it is safe to say they were not in the will of God. For many, many years, they cried out to God for deliverance. He finally got tired of hearing His children being caught up in bondage that He sent a deliverer, Moses.

Now we all know what a mighty deliverance God wrought for the Israelites!

The signs and wonders that God manifested in that period of the Israelites was awesome!

The ten plagues, the parting of the Red Sea, His provision in the wilderness….

But how many of you know that the Red sea, the wilderness, the provision was not the end of what God intended for the Israelites!

But they got satisfied with the deliverance. With the signs and wonders. With lifting people up instead of the Promise.

Why did God deliver them? To get them to the Promise!!!!

To SAVE THEM!

But because they got satisfied with the signs and wonders and seeing God provide. With seeing Gods glory shine on Moses’ face instead of getting in the glory for themselves so that THEIR faces can shine…”

“..No matter what a great deliverance God has wrought in your life, if you just stop there, you may be missing salvation. You may miss out on what God wants to do in you.

There was an end to why God delivered the Israelites. Not just so they can be comfortable, or they could go around strutting and bragging on the deliverance. Yes, glorify God for it. 

He didn’t deliver them so they can go out and start a ministry in the wilderness!!!!! 

Moses had a ministry in the wilderness. God’s glory fell. His face shone with it. 

God used Moses to do many things. 

But as mightily as Moses was used, that wasn’t then end of it. That wasn’t the intention of God…just so a man could be lifted up.

That is part of the reason I believe God allowed Moses to die in the wilderness. Because folks started lifting him up and not lifting up God. 

As many wonderful works God wrought in the wilderness, the Israelites still did what they wanted to do. They still whored after other gods. They still were rebellious and disobedient. 

Even those in leadership were knuckle heads! Remember Aaron and Miriam? Aaron made other gods and Miriam had leprosy.

Many died in the wilderness. Why?

No, not because of what we think. But because they all lost focus on what the whole thing was about which is God getting His people to the Promise.”

Pamela Sheppard writes more about the danger of ineffective ‘deliverance ministries’ in “Be Delivered From Delivered From Deliverance Ministry.”

Do know that there IS a danger in being a part of an ineffective ministry, or one that only deals with one aspect of truth (more so than other aspects).

Demonic Deliverance from Christian Demons


We all remember the movie, The Exorcist with the child actor Linda Blair, right?  In this film, the young girl is possessed by demons and two priests die trying to conduct what is called an exorcism on her, which is supposed to be the Catholic church’s ‘version’ of deliverance.

Though this film was introduced and released in a time in the late 60s and early 70s when it was popular to do so regarding demonic activity (and grossed over $400 million), I found this film accurately depicts what goes on in many churches and deliverance sessions in many ministries TODAY.  Yes, I know that many Protestant ministries boast to be into ‘deliverance.’  And while no one (not that I have known of anyways) has actually died while trying to do deliverance, I can attest to the fact that much which has been termed ‘deliverance,’ just like exorcisms that became popular through the Catholic church, have NOT been successful.

It is with this in mind that I recommend THE BEST book I have EVER read on Christian demons, commonly referred to as ‘religious spirits’ or ‘religious demons.’

Faces of the Religious Demon by Pam Sheppard breaks down for the believer the many manifestations of the religious spirit.  I have maintained for years that religious spirits often masks themselves into being holy and from God when-in actuality-they are NOT.  The Word speaks of religious spirits when it says they have  ’a form of godliness’ but deny the power thereof.

Read this excerpt from Faces of a Religious Demon:

“The main purpose of this book is to unmask the true nature of the warfare as it pertains to exposing religious counterfeits. Counterfeits come disguised like faces covered with various masks. Each face of the religious demon offers new insights and new challenges because of the various façades that human beings unconsciously employ as defense mechanisms in order to maintain pretenses. Since the flesh is naturally adept at self deception, demons use human innate weaknesses as an entrance or “doorway” to mix their own brand of deception with the self deception of the captive. Consequently, the demonic face hides behind the captives own persona, making exposure problematic. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life within the captive’s natural carnality provides a convenient cover to the unseen forces where demons will hide within.”

It is my heartfelt conviction that the ‘doorway’ that the religious spirit is allowed to enter into a person is through any form of putting up fronts, any attempts to deceive others into thinking that a person is one thing when-in fact-they are something else, and just plain old hypocrisy.  When a churchgoer, a pastor, a bishop, an apostle, ANYONE is not true to THEMSELVES and to OTHERS AROUND THEM about who they really are-whether or not they realize that’s what they’re doing or not-they are inviting a religious spirit to dwell in them.

And as we all know, religious spirits are diabolical…and potentially VERY DANGEROUS.  Apostle Jonas Clark says in ‘Overcoming the Religious Spirit‘ that the religious spirit will try to kill your ministry…that they are very dangerous.  And I am sure many of us have come in contact with religious spirits.  I myself was physically attacked on Thanksgiving Day by a religious spirit who tried to kill me by trying to choke me to death!  (He was only able to do so because I admit I failed to discern he had a religious spirit because he did NOT go to church.  So don’t be fooled:  a religious spirit does NOT just reside inside a church building!)

The religious spirit is NOTHING to play with!

This is why I am SO glad Pam has written Faces of a Religious Demon.  Because as we walk in this journey, the Lord will reveal to us yet even another form of godliness, yet even ANOTHER face of a christian (or religious) demon that we have NOT encountered before.  And they can reside IN or OUT of the church!

We must be prepared!

Not to invoke fear or anything, but simply to warn.

If you are not equipped BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD and operating in KEEN DISCERNMENT in this hour…you can be conducting demonic deliverance (like there is such a thing-maybe the better phrase is INEFFECTIVE deliverance) of a Christian demon!  And just like those priests in ‘The Exorcist’ who lost their lives trying to ‘exorcise’ a demon, just like the 7 sons of Sceva who tried to conduct deliverance in the Book of Acts and was not only unsuccessful-but utterly humiliated…we can suffer damage, bodily or spiritual harm and even be killed if we aren’t equipped to deal with christian/religious spirits properly.

Are you a minister who needs to be properly equipped in this hour to set the captives free…yet you are stuck in a religious system that won’t allow you to help those bound around you?

You MUST invest in this book, Faces of a Religious Demon.  

It will open your eyes to a lot of what’s REALLY going on in THE Spirit.

To The Deliverance Minister…

Deliverance Ministry’s Use of a List of Demon Names

In the field of deliverance ministry, there are 3 schools of thought: The Spiritual Warfare School, the Providential School and the Laodicean World View.

The Spiritual Warfare school of thought is like this. God is not really sovereign and therefore the light and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ is NOT sufficient to set captives free.  As such, new doctrines have been created like ”generational curses” as an outstanding example.  New doctrines have been created by those who have taken scripture of its natural context to develop a complicated practice known as “deliverance ministry.”  In the spiritual warfare world view, we MUST know the names of demons.  Too often, proponents of this view ask demons what their names are, expecting them to tell them the truth, based on ONE scripture where Jesus asked for a name and the demon answered, “Legion, for we are many.”  Let’s face it. The Lord wasn’t going to stand there and call out 6000 names.

Then there is the Providential School.  These are those who believe that God is in control and therefore, all we need to do about demons is to seek after Jesus, live a righteous life and not pay any attention to demons. Don’t study them, simply call on the Lord to be delivered.  To them I ask. “What about Job? There was no more of a righteous man in his day and time, yet God set Job up to contend with the devil.

I stand with a school that I myself have laid the foundation for: The Laodicean School.

I start with the premise that we are living in the 7th church age of Laodicea. As the Lord points out, this is an age of gross religious deception due to pride, spiritual blindness and vanity. Therefore, EVERYTHING supernatural must be tried and tested. Deliverance ministry is supernatural and so it too must be “suspect” as it was designed and created by deceived Christians in the early 70′s: Frank and Ida Hammond with their book “Pigs in the Parlor,” and Derek Prince and his books, particularly “How to Expel Demons.”

I take the best from both views. God is in control but He requires us to know the enemy’s tricks and wiles.

For a detailed presentation of these 3 schools of thought, the New Idolatry would be helpful as they are described in detail in a chapter entitled “The Conspiracy of Deliverance Ministry.”

“Should I?  Shouldn’t I?  Can I CHANGE the church…thru my prayers?”

By Pam Sheppard

When I left the church in 2004, I did not know that it was a permanent move.  I expected that the Lord would lead me to another church affiliation.  I had my eye on Rev. Paul Morton’s organization, the full gospel Baptist.  It seemed a great choice for me because I had been  ordained and served in a denominational church  very compatible with  the Baptists, yet I was also a Pentecostal in orientation, belief and practice.

A FORMER PASTOR WARNS: LEAVE THE CHURCH! Part 3

I started out for 33 years of life an atheist.

   THE NEW IDOLATRY

In my book “the New Idolatry,”  I warn ministers and ministers-to-be of the dangers of operating  within the institutionalized, organized church. It is a must read for spiritual discernment in the enemy’s hour of delusion and deception.  For the e-book, click the title link above and for the soft cover, click the book cover to the left.

MINISTERS OF THE END TIMES

Greetings in the precious name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ.  This is an exciting endeavor.  It was 20 years ago that I had a dream of 12 miles of a highway where people were standing “on-line”, single file, at arm’s length.  It has only been recently that the meaning of this dream was revealed. The “highway” is the Internet and you, the people, are “on-line!” 

Allow me to share with you “on-line”, thirty (38) years as a licensed therapist in the state of NY and 30  years as an ordained servant of the Lord Jesus Christ!  I am also an author of six endtime, deliverance books.

I personally believe that we are living in the endtimes, and it is my hope that I will not see the grave before the Lord returns.  However, if I depart and leave you among the living, allow me to share with you the mandate, the  mission, and the method  of Pam Sheppard Ministries so that you can go forth and “set captives free.

 Our mission is  to be used by the Holy Spirit to build up an international body of Christ-centered deliverance ministers.  Casting out demons in these times is not as simple a matter as commanding and expelling. The demons of today are extremely clever and sophisticated and unfortunately, the church is poorly equipped for demonic onslaught that the people of God are facing in these times.  Our goal is to equip the Body of Christ through training people like yourself who will “stand, having done all to stand, STAND THEREFORE!”

We  commit ourselves to excellence in every service that we render.   You will have hands on, personalized  and individualized instruction, with scheduled chat sessions, emails and telephone calls. Some of you may even visit us at our home site.  We want to develop associations and teams that will work together around the country and around the world. 

So give us a call at 518-477-5759.  I receive a special revelation from the Lord every holiday season.  I pray that the Holy Spirit  will give you a rich revelation in the knowledge of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of His name to set captives free.
