Women In Ministry Workshop

SISTERS, WISE UP AND RISE UP! By Pam Sheppard

The Women in Ministry Workshop is to reach out to women who have been bamboozled, hoodwinked, tricked into a set up by the enemy. You have been lied to, made to believe that your ‘assignment’ by GOD is to do the ‘work of God’ by the ‘man of God’s’ side. You have felt ‘a pull, a connection, a link to the man of God and you have believed it was God that told you you would be the first lady of your church.

In order to understand what goes on in the mind of a woman who is under this deception or delusion, you have to understand the CULTURE, the ENVIRONMENT, that she is raised in.MOST of these women are raised up in church. In VERY religious settings. All or most of the families are preachers, so it is EXPECTED for the little girls to grow up and marry a preacher.

These little girls are groomed almost from birth by mothers, aunts and grandmothers-not to mention by proud dads, granddads and uncles-to be a first lady. Most of these religious settings do NOT accept that a woman can be called to preach and teach the gospel (as well as I know that some of you don’t believe it either).

So because the women are ‘sat down’ and ‘silenced’ in these religious settings, the next best thing for them to be are first ladies. Their church will accept that. Their families will accept that. But absolutely under NO circumstances can a woman EVER be called to preach. It is ‘her place’ to be in the first lady’s seat, dressed to kill, loved, adored and sometimes even worshipped by the congregation.

It is in her role as the ‘first lady’ that it is acceptable for her to teach or preach, but then only to the females of the church. She would serve as a spiritual ‘mother’ of the church, a role model for all the ladies to follow.

She is called to stand by the man of God’s side, no matter WHAT goes on behind closed doors. He can preach the house down behind the pulpit, be gay or on the DL, be a FLAGRANT adulterer, a pedophile, stealing from the people, he can be beating the living daylights out of her and the kids, ruling his house with an iron fist….

But as long as the ‘man of God’ is happy, preaching the folks happy, putting on a good show, making the people feel good about themselves, then all is good. The money will start rolling in, and pretty soon pastor can get ‘first lady’ ANYTHING her heart desires! No longer a fledging, struggling ministry, the church will finance and take care of ANY venture the first family presents. They are guaranteed a home, a car, nice clothes, a pension, vacations…the kids will be able to go to private schools.

Even if the first lady KNOWS that what’s going on financially behind the scenes is wrong, she won’t divulge. She will play along, sometimes out of fear of being harmed by the pastor, or out of fear of being the broke, disgusted and busted ministry team and family they were when they first started out in ministry.

Sometimes the ‘first lady’ really is unaware of what’s REALLY going on, in her marriage, in the ministry, in her family. She has been literally brainwashed and whipped by the man of God so that she cannot see the forest from the trees. She got her head up so far in the clouds she couldn’t see what was going on down here on earth if she plunged 1000s of miles deep within its core…poor deceived woman!

Whatever her mindset, the woman plays along with a fantasy., sometimes for YEARS. She plays this religious game of ‘I feel like something is wrong, but Im not gonna do anything about it’ or ‘That is just the enemy trying to break up our marriage and the ministry..’ Both straight up LIES from the DEVIL that he convinces her of so that she will continue to play along in HIS plot-and NOT God’s plan-to deceive a whole flock of people. And thus further negatively affect the REAL church, the Ekklesia.

Women who are not first ladies often turn to the web “to teach. Some have been rejected by the Institutional Church while others have felt led to leave Her by God. “Unfortunately, much too much that women are “teaching” and “preaching” on the web is not only NOT helpful, but in some cases, it is harmful.

I have found that it is really not necessary to know a lot to teach. The issue is that what ya know— ya KNOW!— bottom-line is that what you teach should be without error.

One who teaches needs to be able to discern fact from truth, a hypothesis from a finding, a supposition from a conclusion. Yet women are on video clips and writing Facebook notes and tweeting about spiritual growth and end time matters— when they have not a clue. Then, when they are confronted, they angrily justify and defend themselves with,

“Oh, I am just a housewife. I am not teaching. I am just “spending quality time with my online friends. I am not as bold as YOU Pam, to say that I am a teacher. Oh no. I am not a teacher. I am just “having conversation.” For after all, I am too humble to appoint myself, as YOU have done. I have the fear of the Lord because I know that a woman is not supposed to teach. And I know that teachers receive the greater judgment and condemnation for teaching error!”

Holy Baloney!

This is that same ole slippery way that women have historically controlled their husbands. Some women have played manipulative games with their husbands for so long,–letting him believe that he is running your home when you KNOW the truth is that YOU are!!! Consequently, you rationalize that you can also manipulate God and pretend that “you are not teaching YOUR interpretation of the word of God.”

Let’s get real, Sisters. This is Holy Phoniness to the max. It stinks in my spiritual nostrils. You not only quote scripture, but you declare to people how they ought to worship and “get in the presence of the Lord,” whether or not to fast, how to fast and pray, —and even deeper–that there is no rapture, that Jesus is not literally coming back but that it is a “spiritual” return, that people should not prepare themselves for end times, that those who speak in tongues are going to hell, that Pentecostals are all unsaved heathens. That various folk are false prophets—I’ve heard a woman call them lunatics. And on and on it goes, day after day.

But this is not “teaching” you see! It is that great ole euphemism called “sweet fellowship with the saints and harmless, idle conversation”

Oh, no. YOU not a teacher. Yeh!

To that, I say this. Consider the “technical virgins” of today. They believe themselves to be righteous because they have never experienced coitus by vaginal penetration, yet they masturbate 4 times a day to online porn or they are having anal and oral sex on a regular basis. “Look yall, I’m still a virgin. Yeh!

So I say to Holy Phony Silly Women. don’t think that God cannot distinguish between a euphemism and the real thing. He can tell the difference between Christian fellowship and teaching.

You are TEACHING!

After 30 years in ministry, if I don’t know my calling BY NOW and if I am not bold enough to stand in it, then I am as Holy Phony as the rest of them..

Yes, I am a teacher. But I am also a pastor, an evangelist, a prophet and if I knew what an Apostle is today, I might be one of them too. I am not ashamed of my calling simply because I am a woman. Man did not call me. God did! Man has to live with what God has already done!

So “either teach, as WOMEN OF GOD, OR GET OFF THE POT, Sister!

If you decide to teach, I can train you if you will have me. You don’t have to affiliate with me and no one has to know that I am the one who “undeceived you” and you can remain independent and “un-affiliated.” . I am retired and I am looking to lead NO ONE!. My concern is for those who are following you that some of you are feeding error every day, yet taking no responsibility for your error for fear that God will condemn you for teaching.

He will condemn you for being a hypocrite. The reason some of you are teaching is simple. You see, the Lord has actually called you to teach but you are pretending not to be a teacher because you are a woman. Sounds like a Catch 22 to me.

Time is runnin out, Gurl! Humble yourself right now, Gurl, to the fact that you are teaching without proper training! Time is too short to be narrow-minded and petty. You need to get your act together, like yesterday! ASAP!

WOMEN, YOU MUST NOT KEEP SILENT FOR YOU MUST TEACH. STAND UP AND TEACH BUT GET TRAINED FIRST .REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT. For a lack of training, too many women in ministry are unfortunately fitting the Jezebelian profile, set up by the enemy to be un-fruitful.

PRIDE IS YOUR ENEMY!

The devil's deception was broken in my life because I am quick to admit to error and I am not a people pleaser.

Facebook is a place where everyone wants to teach and be heard and few want their followers to know that they don’t know very much.   Rebellion and belligerance is very apparent in their various posts which portrays a rebellious  spirit. Since rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, many facebook teachers are in the hands of the enemy and God has turned some of  them over to strong delusion. 

 There are some teachers on fb that have actually put people in bondage with their teachings.  I won’t call any names but the truth is that their pride keeps them from being teachable. The enemy loves pride because deception is made easy when we think more highly of ourselves then we ought to think. I am not an advocate of the world’s self esteem teaching that has been adopted by the religious world.  Self esteem as defined by the world is when the world has high regards for you.  You are accepted, found to be worthy and considered competent. In other words, worldly self esteem is rooted in what others think of you. And for this reason, those who seek worldly favor will compromise to obtain and sustain the world’s approval.  Christians of this persuasion find that they are always trying to fit in and in so doing, they disobey the Lord’s will to please others.

I have purposed and established in my heart that my self esteem is found in Jesus Christ.  The Lord is the only one I need to please because I love truth. When the motives of the heart are not pure, truth will be hidden.  To be pure is to be clear, articulate, unclouded understanding.  Not confused, covered up or clandestine. When something is not pure, it is defiled.  To defile is to contaminate or to pollute.  When the heart is not pure, then Satan’s job is easy because defilement has come from within US, usually because of pride. For pride begins with what we say in our hearts and what we believe in our minds. Jeus linked pride to adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy and foolishness. (Mark 7:20-22) A proud mind is not pure because it thinks, feels and behaves in ways that suggest that we think too highly of ourselves.

Pride, self esteem and vanity deny and conceal the truth. These 3 traits will pull you away from the Lord’s will by quenching and grieving the Holy Spirit and your spirit will become blocked from God’s revelation about what is to come.  Pride is also PHONY. Nothing real about it because it puts forth a facade or an act. Pride will cause you to deny your feelings, and pretend so much that you even fool yourself.  But the devil is not fooled. He knows when you are “fronted” before him in your effort to appear to be in control, putting forth that lie when you routinely boast that you are blessed by God. As you over compensate, pride will prevent you from admitting that you need help and therfore the enemy can use your pride to block you from crucial resourses.

The proud religious person must ALWAYS appear to be knowlegeable and therefore he or she will never admit to not knowing or understanding a verse of scripture, because they are concerned that others will think them stupid and so they will even lie to cover up their ignorance or their weakness as they  hide the truth to protect their religious image. Such people are already in the hands of  a religious demon. Pride goeth before a fall!

A proud person is not wise either. They make stupid, even costly mistakes. As vanity is excessive pride, a vain person’s conceit will bring sure destruction for self deception is an open doorway to failure.  Proud people :

  • are outraged when others they that they are superior to them
  • are defensive, always justifying themselves
  • are critical in their efforts to tear down others to build themselves up
  • will hunger for prestige by seeking praise and approval from others
  • adopt the ways of those they are trying to please.
  • make EVERYTHING personal.
  • will live in the past and hunger for “the good old days.”

To the proud I  declare that the world did not create you. The world did not redeem you. When you justify yourself before men, you establish them as your lord with authority and you enable the enemy to deceive you. Remember. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

If you are too proud to admit that you have been worshipping the fake Jesus, you are trapped in a pit of religion.  There is help available.  Come join our facebook group. Either comment in this post or send a message to www.facebook.com/pamela.sheppard.911
