HOW SATAN USES FALSE ASSUMPTIONS AND CONFIRMATION


The enemy really designs his deception based upon his knowledge of us.  The secret desires of our hearts  and our assumptions provide religious demons with  both the blueprint and the building blocks of the grand deception that fuels  the enemy’s overall  plan.  The plan begins as a kind of conspiracy theory which answers the questions , “what makes him or her tick? And if I do THIS,  then will he or she do THAT?”  What the religious demon has to do is to find a way to “guide our steps.”  There is no greater thrill than for a religious demon to manipulate and control a child of God and cause that person to become both his prey and his captive.

So I believe that we overcome by first knowing ourselves.  When you know yourself better than the enemy knows YOU, then you are on your way to victory.  For example, if you are an achiever, your desire to succeed CAN BE a key contact point on the blueprint and the religious demon will begin to “build the plan.”

Consider the movie “the Devil’s Advocate.” An advocate is a lawyer, and Keanu Reeves, “the advocate” was a lawyer in the movie, as was the devil, played by Al Pacino.  The  devil’s plan to guide the steps of   his advocate began with setting Reeves up  to win every case as a defense attorney.  By doing so, Pacino
said to himself, if I  cause Reeves to win every case, will he  to literally do “anything” to win when it appears that he may lose his first case? Will he neglect a sick wife?  Will he ignore his mother’s warnings?  Will he even cheat to win? Will he hide evidence?

In the movie,  the devil had been watching the advocate from the time he was born, and he wanted to see if he knew  Reeves better than the advocate  knew himself.  Just in case the advocate had any surprises in his back pocket, the devil  had a back up plan.  His first plan was to cause Reeves to risk
everything in order NOT TO LOSE A CASE.  And when that didn’t work, Pacino’s final plan was even better.  What was the foundation of the entire devil’s conspiracy?  It was the vanity of the advocate relative to his desire to always succeed and excell.

Vanity was the advocate’s Achilles heal. Where Reeves went wrong was in his assumptions. He assumed that he was winning each and every case because of his skill, when in reality, the devil was helping him to win.

So point number one in trying the spirits is this: When you go wrong in your assumptions, you have given place to the devil.

What is an assumption?

An assumption is taking for granted that a particular supposition, fact or circumstance is true. It is prematurely accepting as truth, what is merely an hypothesis or a guess.   For example, when I reflect upon my very first assumption as a Christian, I “assumed” that because I had power in my hands to heal, that:

1.  the healing power was from God;

2.  that God was calling me to minister healing.

It took about 25 years for me to find out that “the healing power that I had was NOT from God.”  So logically speaking, if the power was not from God, and if it was not from ME, then it must have come from the enemy.  If the power came from the enemy, then what was his agenda in giving me the power?

When I “tried the spirits” on this matter, I realized that I had first manifested healing power while I was a new age occultist.  When I became a Christian and I saw in the bible that Jesus is a Healer, I just “assumed” that since I was now “born again,” I could simply transition occult healing into my
Christian work for God.   WRONG!!!  Along this same train of thought, we “assume” that because what we are doing is similar to what the early apostles did, that we are doing “the same thing.”  It ain’t necessarily so.

With every Christian, the enemy assigned to you is going to “set you up” to be disappointed in God, so that eventually, you will be so frustrated with failure, that you will throw your spiritual hands up in the air and declare, “I’m done with this.”  This was the intent of the healing power I operated in.  The religious devil’s  motive was to frustrate me when those I laid hands on did not “keep” their healing.  This works also in the opposite direction.  If the sick keeps the healing, then “the healer” will assume that he is operating off of divine power, when he is not.

Consequently, the devil remains in control and can exercise authority in the healer’s life whenever he sees fit.

 

Assumptions are constantly made by Christians who believe that  “the 3 witnesses rule”  is an indication
that a sign, wonder, message or circumstance is  “a confirmation” from God.Confirmation!  Its a twelve letter dirty word that covers a wide field of consideration! In fact,  Satan and his crew get many chuckles out of this one.

There are so many varieties of “confirmations” that it is hard to present one representative example, so I’ll have to  make one up.  You had a dream that you should move to Georgia. Or perhaps someone from your church prophesied over you—“God has called you to minister in Georgia.”   The same day, you heard Ray Charles sing, “Georgia on my mind.”  Then  someone called you on the telephone from Georgia, but it was a wrong number. In the afternoon, a friend stopped by and gave you some peaches.  Georgia peaches.

“So there it is” you say to yourself.  I got 3 signs or witnesses that provide “confirmation” to my dream or prophetic word.  God wants me to move to Georgia.

I use  such a ridiculous example to highlight what foolish believers do constantly.

The”confirmation” thing is nothing but an assumption, not based on fact, not based on truth. When God sends a message, He does not have to confirm it. He may, or He may not. Here is an instance in my life where God supernaturally “showed and proved.”

I had recently divorced my last husband because his drug addiction became unbearable.  However, I still loved him very much so I was vulnerable to him  if he attempted to reconcile. I thought, “since he had not cheated on me since we were married, perhaps I should not have divorced him.”

One morning, I dreamt I saw a mudslide.  My husband jumped into it.  When he got up, a woman was hidden underneath him—in the mud.

As I lay there, considering the meaning of the dream, the phone rang.  It was my ex.  He wanted to reconcile.  I listened but I was quiet, remembering the dream I had just 5 minutes before the call.

I got up out of my bed, and walked into a room that had once been his den.  Laying in the middle of the floor, in a room that I had cleaned several times was an application for credit, made out by my ex.  What I noticed was that he used a different address and phone number on the application.  So I dialed the number. A woman answered.  I asked “Can I speak to Rich?”  She replied, “He is not here right now.  Who is this?”  I said “his wife..”

The woman went berserk.  She screamed “you are not his wife.  You have divorced him.  I have been his woman for the last 3 years.  So you need to go about your business and leave him alone because Rich is MINE!!!”

So when I try the spirits, this was rather supernatural.  It all occurred within the space of 20 minutes. Something appeared on my floor that was not there for two months!!!!  I dreamed about the hidden woman, “under the mud” of my ex’s secret life 5 minutes before his call.

Was this the devil trying to get me to go over there and shoot somebody and end up in jail? For I also had her address.

Not THIS time! lol. Both God and the devil know that I am too wise and too much in control of my emotions to fall for THAT one. The Lord simply provided me with the hidden information that I needed to stop punishing myself for divorcing an adulterer and for NOT TAKING HIM BACK!!!!  I had every
right to divorce him.

 

At times, God WILL confirm.  When he does, it will not be an assumption.  IT WILL BE FACT AND TRUTH THAT SETS YOU FREE.

  Take it from one who knows. Most confirmation comes from the devil.

Here is another personal experience.   I may have used this real life example before, but it bares repeating because it clarifies my point.  In 1979, I had a dream that I saw a
minister standing on my church’s steps, with a robe across his arm.   He looked at me and said, “Girl, I’m gonna marry You!” In the dream, he was wearing a navy blue suit purchased from Sears and a pair of navy blue swede shoes.

Two weeks later, on a Sunday morning, “a force” was trying to stop me from going to
church.  I “assumed” it was the devil. So I persevered and went out of the door,
walking to church.  Looking back today, I realize that it was God who tried to
stop me from going, or at least an angel sent from God.

When I arrived, the new visiting pastor was at the church, robed and wearing a navy blue suit and blue swede shoes.  I was sitting in the congregation and he set his eyes on
me from the pulpit chair.  Later that evening, my pastor called, claiming that the visiting pastor wanted to meet me.  When we met he said “Girl, I’m gonna marry you cause you sooooo pretty!” I asked, where did you buy your suit?  He said “Sears and Roebuck.”

Plenty of confirmation here!.


Without the dream and all of this “confirmation”, I would  never have given this man a second glance.  He was simply not my type.  So because of all of this “confirmation,”  I assumed “this must be God.”  To make a long story short, it was not.  This minister was one of the worst men to ever enter into my life.  He was a Satanic setup for things that could have literally “taken me down and out!.”

So when you have circumstances occur that are similar, with all kinds of confirmation, a try the spirits tip is this—- ,

Run like a bat let out of hell.  Its the devil.


The excuses that we make to explain why we find ourselves under demonic attack are another form of an assumption.  My meaning is better explained by illustration.  I founded a church with a name that I discovered more than a decade later, was given to me by a religious demon.  My kind of vanity was that I “assumed” that because the Denomination I was ordained in was defiled, that my ministry was clean.  You need to know that just because your opposition may be wrong, that doesn’t make you RIGHT!!! I was unaware of
this truth,   so I “assumed”  that the church that I founded was superior to any of the churches in the Denomination.

So when my church and I came under a persistent attach from all sides, I assumed, “we must be doing great things and the devil is angry.”  So the attack caused someone with a personality type like mine to brace myself and hold on to my church and ministry with an even stronger grip.  Little did I know that “this was the motive for the attack—that I would hold on to what God wanted me to let go of, as long as I assumed that I was doing God a service.

 

Usually when demons bombard you with frequent attacks, they are already in control.  They simply want you to assume that you have a fighting chance.  According to Jessie Penn Lewis, “They attack a person because they are in possession, but make him think and believe it to be an indirect attack, ie. through another person.  The blame is placed on the man himself or someone else, or on anything but the true cause, so that the intruder may not be discovered and expelled.  It is therefore important that all ‘excuses’ should be examined, i.e., the ‘reasons’ for such and such an unexplainable
manifestation.

 

The causes should always be gone into, for by believing a wrong interpretation of the manifestation, more ground is given to the lying spirits.  The believer may be refusing ground on the one hand, and giving new ground on the other, unless he examines all the suggestions which come to his mind
concerning his condition.” (War on the Saints, pg. 176)

 

This is what the enemy is looking for when he takes advantage of the assumptions you make.  He is looking for “new ground” to continue to deceive and control you. Those who are most vulnerable are those who love their ministry more than they love Jesus Himself.  Anyone who has a ministry should not assume that it was God who gave it to you.  So go back to what was going on in your life when you assumed that God called you into ministry.

 

Since I have “been there and done that,” it is easy for me to recognize those who are themselves possessed  by a ministry that they assume  God gave to them.  I can recognize an obsessed worker, one who is consumed with either revival, deliverance, setting captives free, healing, even saving souls, which no one does but God.

 

Those who are obsessed by “their” ministries are blind to their condition.  Certainly, helping others, giving of your time, teaching and  preaching,  and un-deceiving the deceived are all rightful things.  Nevertheless, very often, the enemy uses ministry as a distraction to the worker’s own need of deliverance from the enemy’s deception.

 

If you put yourself into the hands of workers like these, you will be subject to both their confusion and their contradictions.  Such workers will seem strong, yet they are weak, loving but they are really stoical and distant.  Why?  Because they are  un-trusting and  afraid of every dark shadow.  Remember.  The
Lord’s yoke is easy and His burden is light.

Anytime you assume that God can’t do His work without YOU, you are in the devil’s hands.

ORBS IN THE CHURCH

My First Encounter with an Orb

 

Pam Sheppard

About 5 years ago, I was contacted by a pastor  from Denmark who had visited my website. I had a picture uploaded  of my storefront church among my photos  and the  pastor noticed an unusual image in  the picture of my church  that was also in a photo taken of his church.  He  joyfully announced to me in an email, “You have at least ONE angel  in your church.  One is appearing on the photo that you have on the web that is just like the ones shown in the picture that I have sent you of our church.”

I don’t know when and how I knew that these round circles with lots of dots in them  are what occultists call “orbs.”  When I looked at the photo of the church in Denmark, I could see the same image, 20 or more times over.  (See the first 2 photos below) The pastor labeled the orb on my storefront church  with the word “angel”.

The pastor’s email  was rather interesting because of its timeliness.  I had begun to suspect that demons were in my church as I saw some demonic faces peering at me behind the floral arrangement in front of the window, and also behind the altar.  When I received the email, I was planning to  move the church out of the storefront, not just for that reason but for several others that need not be mentioned at this juncture.

Anyway, I certainly did not believe that this was an angel.  On the contrary, I suspected that it must be a demon based upon what I perceived occurring in my church.  Since we moved a few months later, I didn’t dwell on “the image.”  So I forgot about it until recently.

SO WHAT IS AN ORB?

According to photographers, researchers, scientists and New Agers,  an orb is a luminous
circle of light that can be photographed, taken with or without a flash camera.  They range in size from tiny to an average of two to 5 inches in diameter.  Various websites connect the orbs to aliens and ghosts, while the Christian pastor in Denmark believes that the orbs are “angels.”

Researchers and professional photographers indicate that the orbs are not lens flares, nor are they dust or pollen particles in the air.  The strange part is that orbs have predominately been photographed and even seen with the naked eye at occult conferences, in graveyards, masonic lodges and caves.

So my question  is, “why are orbs  now showing up in photographs taken in churches?”

Skeptics reason that the orbs appear in high places and that may have something to do with the camera.  Not so.  My storefront church has low ceilings yet there is an orb that manifested on the film.  Some say that they are only visible at night in dark places.  Yet, the picture of the storefront church was taken in the daytime.  Below are some other pictures of orbs taken in a masonic lodge, and other religious settings. I have in my possession, several more pictures—some taken at the Notre Dame Cathedral, another in a cemetery and some in caves, and other “spiritual” buildings.

Here is the picture taken in the storefront.

The picture below is the pastor’s church in Denmark.  There are at least 20
or more orbs in this photo.

I also have a picture packed away in a huge box that were taken in the denomination I was ordained in. On the photo, are orbs but these are orbs with faces in them  They remind me of the cartoon, “Casper the Friendly Ghost,” only their mouths are in a scornful, mocking grimace. Here are a few more pictures of orbs taken in “spiritual” places:

So, what do I think this all means as it relates to the organized church?  I was born again at home in 1977, never having attended a church a day in my life.  In 1979,   I received 3 dreams that guided me to a particular church—messages that I “assumed” were from God.     Four year later, I was called out of that church, and then again in 2003.  The first time I was called out was in October 1983.  I was at a Kenneth Copeland Believer’s Convention held in Atlanta.

Asleep in my hotel room, I was awakened by a bellowing, booming voice that sounded like mighty waters, loud trumpets, and thunder ALL AT ONCE.  I jumped out of the bed and hit the floor where I bowed down on my knees.  The voice of thunder only said 3 words: COME OUT, SEPARATE. Must have said it 20 times or more.

I came out a few weeks later,  but I went back to the same Denomination in 1987, where I caught un-holy hell for the next 17 years until God stepped in and led me out in 2004.  I waited for 2 years for the Lord to lead me to affiliate with a different church system.  Not only did He not do so, but  when He spoke again, the Lord compared the church to “a condemned building.” He has also revealed that “He NEVER sent me to the Denomination  in the first place and that the 3 dreams that led me there “WERE NOT FROM HIM.”

Once I was out, I thought to “go back for a visit.”  The Lord spoke again, this time asking me a 4 letter question that brought the fear of the Lord upon me.  He asked, “Are YOU Lot’s wife?”

After hearing that question, I won’t even step inside of a church building for a wedding or a funeral.  By nature, I am a balanced, rational, non-obsessive personality.  However, regarding entering church buildings, I am adamant to the right side of obsession.  I don’t tell others what to do or not to do.  I just take care of ME and I keep Lot’s wife ever before me in my conscious and unconscious mind.  When a close relative died last year, I walked into the church building, looked at the body for less than a minute and I walked out—very, very fast.  I sat in the car until the funeral was over.

This is me.

So I don’t attempt to cause others to be as adamant as I am about this point.  I counsel and mentor people who agree with me on most points yet they admit that they see nothing wrong with going to church, and I do not contend with them about this
issue.  Recently, one of my clients stated that “her church was different.”  I simply advised her to  “go and take some pictures.”   She did.  Here is the photograph of her church.  It is filled with orbs.  The biggest one is on the far right of the stage.


Without any advice from me, the Lord is “leading my client  out of this dwelling place of demons called a church.”

So what do I believe is happening??? I believe that the fact that orbs are now manifesting in churches is a sign that devils and demons have taken over ALL Christian pulpits.  Church buildings are like haunted houses—filled not with ghosts but with evil spirits.

Certainly, demons have been attracted to churches for centuries and so that is no surprise. Moreover, doctrines of demons are many.   However, I believe that  demons literally  “took over” when the church began to preach an “I accept Jesus” doctrine, taking salvation out of the hands of God and putting eternal life into the hands of man.  This is the reason why ALL churches are affected, in every nation of this world.  Charles Finney allowed the demons to use him to bring “a new gospel” into all churches.”  If you have ever said, “I accepted Jesus,” you too have been affected.”  None of us are exempt.

So if you think that your church is the exception, I suggest to you that the next time you enter the building,

“TAKE SOME PICTURES!!!!”

Cultural Witchcraft:Breaking the Power of a Controlling Mother

Minister Marlene

Is your mother a controlling mother? Do you turn into a four year old every time your mother is in view? Have you been spending your life, trying to please a manipulative mother, who is never satisfied, no matter what you do?

Does your mother try to run your life, because she thinks she knows what’s best for you, your children, AND your spouse? If you answered ” yes ” to any of the above questions, your sweet Mom might just have a controlling spirit. This article will usher you into the manipulating, suffocating world of mothers, who are dead set on controlling their children.

What does the Bible say?
Controlling Mother
A controlling mother may simply quote the Bible if she feels you slipping from her influence, manipulating the word of God to control you. The word of God commands us to honor our father and our mother. But if a dominating mother is using this scripture to manipulate and control your actions and decisions, something is wrong.
 Controlling mothers forget that the scripture also says that fathers (and mothers) should not provoke their children to wrath. Even so, we know from scripture that those who practice manipulation and domination are practicing witchcraft. Not only that, but their spirits are rebellious. Ask yourself if your controlling mother’s plans for you, line up with God’s plans for you. In other words, you can’t live your life according to the plans of others.
Consider This…
There are all kinds of people in the world, just as there are all kinds of mothers. Not every mother is godly. Not every mother is saved. And not every mother is emotionally stable. You’ll have to examine the behavior of your own mother, to see if it lines up with scripture. For example, the word of God says that we are to leave our mothers, and cling to our spouse. Therefore, when controlling mothers insist on ruling over their children, they are in error. You love your mother. Therefore, you may want to defer to her, even if  she’s controlling.
 Yet, the word of God opposes such a choice. We often forget that if the Son has made us free, we are free indeed. So then, why live  a life of misery when trying to comply? Why obey a domineering controlling mother if her demands  are out of sinc with your own salvation?  Trying to please a controlling spirit, no matter who they are is really sin. It may be hard to wrap your head around this, but you must ask yourself whether your mother’s bias plans agree with Gods plans for you.
If your mother insists on ruling your life, your children’s lives and your husband’s life, she is rebuking your adulthood. Such a mother, wants you under her coat tails.
 A controlling mother is selfish, and unconcerned with how you feel. A controlling mother, has no qualms about hurting your feelings. A controlling mother has developmental problems of her own, for whatever reason. Yet, you can still honor an emotionally abusive mother, while protecting your own emotional health. For example, you can distance and/or limit your time with her. If a controlling mother refuses to acknowledge her domineering ways, you have your emotional health to consider.
Forgive Your Mother and Be Wise in Your Dealings with her…
If you have suffered in the hands of a controlling mother, know that you did not make her this way. It is not your responsibility to try and change her. Only God can soften hearts. You will end up with additional emotional stress, when trying to change a controlling spirit. Controlling spirits need deliverance. Perhaps your mother suffered under the controls of her own mother. Perhaps she did not. Either way, it’s completely useless to argue with spirits. Seek peace and pursue it. Sometimes, the peace you seek, will come by seperation. If you continue to put up with binding controls from a mother who dismisses your adulthood, peace will flee away from you. Your world will consist of drama, confusion and shame. Have you ever felt quilty for standing up to a fault finding mother? If you have, believe me, I know what you are talking about.
What About the Cultural Differences…
I had a very interesting conversation with Pam Sheppard regarding culture, and controlling mothers. I was never one to say that certain cultures had certain characteristics. But I find that I was wrong about this. Pam and I briefly discussed how culture plays a part in the way mothers interact with their children. Pam and I are from West Indian parentage, and there are major differences in the way we were brought up, in comparison to our American friends.
 In addition, I was born in England, so there are some difference in my own approach to life. I tend to display the British over politeness. Anyway, Pam really shed some light on the topic. My eyes were opened! My own mother was a very strong figure in my life. She had an Island pride, and forcefulness about herself. Her personality scared me, when I was a young girl. I noticed this with all the females in my family. They all seemed to lead their households with an iron fist, with no apology to husband, or anyone else.  They also  followed the age old adage, that children should be seen and not heard. To say that Island parents are old school is an understatement.
Find out more…
To find out More on this and the topic of culture and controlling mothers, my best advice is that you read Pam Sheppard’s books on the topic. Knowledge is power, and Pam has over 30 years experience that you can draw on. Might I add, that your peace of mind, and emotinal health is a priority. Okay then, I hope you join this blog. Shoot me a comment below. I’d love to hear your story!!!

LEAVING THE CHURCH

 

Leaving any social group is not an easy task.  All humans are social beings.
When we hurt and we are forced outside of a group’s circle, we either desire to
vindicate ourselves in one way or another, or we passively stew  in   a
simmering pot of self recriminations, depression and regrets.  When people
reject us because of WHO we are and NOT what we have actually done, then the pattern of our  private times of reflexion will cause us to  consider that
since we couldn’t fit in, perhaps the majority is right and the fault lies in
our own camp.

Let us also not forget that peer pressure from those we have left behind can
certainly  be a stumblingblock to those who for one reason or the other, found
themselves “outside the sheepfold.” Preachers probably denounced you openly from the pulpit in the hearing of your peers.  What follows is that your peers will take it upon themselves to believe that “you are in sin and going to hell
because you left them,” and so they will valiantly  try   to win you back.  When
you run into them in your community, some will sadly look at you and piously
repeat the platitude of “I’m praying for you,” while others may even scold you
with “a piece of their mind” about “you disrespected my pastor!.”

My case was different because as a  former pastor and an evangelist for 25
years,  I was never really welcomed or  accepted in the Denomination in the
first place. Even though I expected  that the people would be delirious with
glee if I left them , coming out of  the church was not a “walk in the park” for
me by any stretch of the imagination.  Commonsense should have told
me, “since these people cannot stand you and only tolerate you
being among them,  why not just shake their dust from your feet?  It is clear
that they will not accept you or the word that you preach,
Pam!”

 

Believe me, after what I endured among them, some might think that  I was
either a glutton for punishment or something “else” was going on with me. The
truth is that I believed that I was God’s prophet, sent to a dying, sinning
traditional church, to cause the people to turn from their wicked ways and
repent.  Therefore, the spiritual abuse that I endured in that place was my way
of “suffering for Christ.”  I strongly believed that God needed me to stay among
the enemy in order to convert them.

So as a root in dry ground, my feet were firmly planted on
hostile territory.  So when  I came out, it was  because “God spoke.”  He warned
very clearly in a dream, “if you stay in that church, I will not be able to use
you, and you shall remain a candle or a light, hidden under a bed. However,
don’t leave on your own.  Let them put you out.”

At the time, my prophetic way of thinking caused me to believe that God
wanted the Denomination  to put me out because He wanted to judge them for not
receiving the prophet that He had sent them.  However, today, I am a lot less
self consumed.  You see, the Lord  eventually revealed that “He
never sent me there in the first place, nor did He  or would He call a babe in
Christ like I was in ’81,   into ministry in such a sinful place for the sheep
in wolves clothing to overtake me!.”
  When I tried the spirits and
looked back at the time I believed that I was called, I could see how the
devil’s hand was in ALLof it.  I had heard from God!  Wow!

So I understand today,  that the Lord  desired the church to put me
out in 2004
in order to save me from  the  pervasive mental anguish of
constantly wondering if I had done the right thing by walking out on my own.  As a result,  I could not blame myself in anyway for coming out since
they put ME out. It was a rather simple process.  Since I did
not attend the annual meeting,  the Bishop used a technicality to remove my
names from the rolls. Since I did not send in my annual dues of $660, the Bishop convinced the delegate voters that removing me was possible and acceptable within the laws of the Church.

Did I expect such a thing to happen?  No, I did not.  I had no idea how they
could even put me out because I was in excellent ministerial
standing.   This  was a technicality never before used,  for there were people
in nursing homes who had not sent in the annual dues for 10 years or more, yet their names were never removed.  Also, I was aware of other active ministers who never paid the dues at any time.  Therefore, I could have fought this arbitrary decision and remained a minister in good standing.  However, since God had already  revealed to me that I MUST come out 9 months before they  actually put me out, I did not protest. I left quietly.  I received only one call from a minister who enquired of my well being.  No one else in hundreds of people tried to convince me to come back so leaving was made easy for me.

 So that no one comes away from this thinking, “Oh, since she was so
spiritually abused, she is against the church entirely,” you need to
know this.
  When I was removed in 2004, I completely expected that God
would lead me to another church organization.  I waited patiently for 2 years
until I heard from the Lord “the next time”.  To my surprise, the Lord  revealed that He had no intention of sending me to any church.  A year or so later, the Lord explained why He desired that I remain “church free.” It has been a progressive revelation.

  As for the Denomination, the new Bishop invited me back in 2008.  He said
“Pam, I’ll support you in EVERYTHING that you do. I want you to
re-affiliate your ministry with us.  We need ministers like you. I am so sorry that the Denomination did not act like the Church.  I want you back.”

When a Bishop says words like that to any minister, he has the power to back
it up.  For example, a bishop has the power and influence to simply
“request” that each and every church under his authority   buy ALL of my books, in bulk.  We are talking about several thousands of  here and loads of dollars here.  I could have become  a best selling author overnight by the request of ONE bishop.  A bishop  can also “suggest” to every pastor under his authority to invite me to preach or conduct seminars in their respective churches. This means even more dollars in my pocket.   The Bishop also  has the power to  appoint me to any church that I desire to pastor.  This means a church salary. One bishop also has influence with 11 others, who can do the exact  same thing for me in their respective regions, “at my Bishop’s  request.”  Now you are talking about millions.   A worldwide denomination, more than 200 years old, the bishops are in complete control over every pastor, minister and church under their charge.

 Two days after speaking with the  new Bishop, “I heard from God.”  He
impressed upon me, “Pam, the 3 dreams that you had in 1979 that caused you to join the Denomination, were not sent to you by Me.  I never sent you to that church, nor did I desire for you to become a minister therein. The words that the Bishop spoke to you two days ago were not inspired by Me either!”

 The Lord did not mention the devil ONE time.  However, since I knew that I
did not create those dreams and that I did not call myself into ministry, the
only other choice was “obvious!”

 Leaving the organized church, and not looking back, is going
to be extremely difficult for some of you, particularly for those that have been
favored or at least well received,  and for those who have had  satisfying
ministries or may even have earned some income. Don’t be surprised, if  it may be somewhat challenging  to break those ties.  When your children have bonded with other children and have participated in daycare, afterschool programs, summer camp and the like, cutting ties is even more complicated. Music ministries are particularly challenging. So are friendships that provided you with opportunities for companionship and Christian fellowship.
To ALL of you, I say these brief words, a few from the Lord, a few from
me:

 If your righthand offend you, cut it off.

If you need to be social, join the Y!  You will be much safer.  Much
better off.

 However,  to help you make up your mind, consider this.  There are 3 main
reasons that you should leave your church, without looking back.

1.  Fallen angels have been feverishly and skillfully working  for about a
century to infiltrate  the entire organized  church system with false doctrines,
in order to be able to gain access to all pulpits.  Demons and
devils have brought plagues into the churches.  People are being
tormented.

2. Since ALL but a few churches are caught up in the decisional salvation
message, namely, that man chooses Christ by repeating a sinner’s prayer or
responding to an altar call, Are there saved people in church?
Certainly!  However, ask them how they got saved.  I am willing to bet that the day they got saved, “they were not in church.”

3.  There is coming a movement called “Joel’s Army.”  In fact, it is already
here. Once this movement really takes hold, Joel’s Army leaders teach
that there will be a civil war among the churches.  Those who are in
disagreement with their doctrines and practices  will be removed or “wiped
out.”  Since this war is not only spiritual but “natural,” you may have to take
a pistol into church with you one day coming  too soon for comfort.

Once you come out, Beloved, then I warn you.  Don’t look
back.

 What do you do in the meantime? Well, you can form a home church.  If you

THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL

Quite frankly, this false doctrine is so distasteful to me that I have buried it along with my attachment to the organized church. However, since I am often questioned about the subject, I will reluctantly address it for the sake of inquiring and damaged sheep.

Since the love of money is the root of ALL evil, it is not surprising that the prosperity gospel is one of the top false doctrines proclaimed by religious demons in this particular hour of history. In a nut shell, it is an out of biblical context teaching that obligates God to bless the tither or the giver of offerings to the organized church in ALL ways, with an exaggerated focus on financial prosperity.

An added emphasis is that it is taught from the pulpits around the globe  that  a believer can actually BUY a spiritual blessing from God with their financial giving. The message has even been reduced to a quasi-mathematical formula—whatever you give will will have a 100 fold return: 100 dollars for a one dollar offering, 1000 dollars for 10 dollars, 10,000 for 100 dollars, and so on.

It is truly an abomination to twist the Lord’s very words in bible RED serve as the foundation for this demonic, materialistic teaching. Jesus said  “I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly”. He was not talking about finances. The word for life in this verse is “zoe”—-ETERNAL LIFE!!! Yet word of faith are defensive and belligerent in their ignorance. Some have even used the Lord’s very words to name their nefarious churches “Abundant Life,” a bold suggestion of their commitment to the prosperity false doctrine.

Consequently,WHEN THE PREACHERS SEND THE MESSAGE THAT MONEY AND WEALTH WILL FLOW FROM THE PULPITS TO THE PEWS TO THOSE WHO  BLESS “THE ANOINTED MAN OR WOMAN OF GOD AND THAT WHEN THEY TITHE, THEY ARE GIVING TO GOD—Well—-

THIS IS THE BIGGEST FLIM FLAM EVER IN THE HISTORY OF CON GAMES.

To the word of faith prosperity preacher, giving money to the church is “planting seed” is taken from the Lord’s parable about “the Sower.” If you have listened to Christian radio or watched preachers on TV, you have undoubtedly heard the expression, “good ground.” They have told you that their church or ministry is GOOD GROUND.” Therefore, if you sow your seed into it, you will reap a financial harvest.

It is amazing how many countless millions around the world  have fallen for this demonic lie in the last 20 years!

Absolutely incredulous. It reminds me of the old flim flam that was rampant  in the 20’s and 30’s in the inner cities called “bakin money.” Prior to the mark giving the con man his or her  life savings, the con man  put a small amount money into a heated oven and “baked”it. As bread spreads because of the yeast, when the money came out of the oven, it had increased 100 fold.

So by this “demonstration,” the mark was convinced by the trick of the eye. You see,  in the demonstration, the con man had stealthfully  added the increase into the oven when the mark was not looking by the slight of hand. Even though poor folk fell for the con,  at least they were shown some sort of demonstration.Today, pulpit pimps and prostitutes have raised the spiritual ante by teaching  THEIR marks that they must“walk by faith and not by sight!”

“WHAT A SET-UP!!!”  If you don’t get the increase they promise God will send you for your tithes and offers, you are  yet tricked again to believe that perhaps YOUR faith is too weak to prosper!!!

Listen, people of God! Jesus explained the parable of the Sower Himself. Good ground is the soul or heart of one who hears the gospel, understands it, believes it and He saves them!!!!

                         The seed is the word of God, not MONEY!!!!

In conclusion, I repeat.  The prosperity gospel is  particularly abominable because it takes the words of the Lord, adds to them and detracts from them.

The prosperity preacher may have flim flammed you and gotten rich off of your hard earned dollars, but he and she are cursed. Why? As Paul warned the Galatians, anyone who adds to or takes away from the word of God is CURSED!

IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED THIS BLASPHEMY, YOU HAVE PARTAKEN OF THAT VERY CURSE! REPENT AND DISAVOW IT, BELOVED!!!!

One last thing.About 5 years ago, the Lord showed  me that He has sent a spirit of poverty on all the sheep who have been duped by the prosperity gospel, —not as punishment but as a warning—a wake up call. He wants to let you know that the prosperity gospel is not working and therefore, you will use your commonsense and wake up to the fact that it is not of Him.  Be warned. He wants you to flee the prosperity gospel.  He will restore your finances once you “get His message” and repent.

THE CROSS, THE RESURRECTION AND DELIVERANCE

ARE YOU LOT’S WIFE?

I have been doing the work of deliverance for 28 years and so I learned that I must “plead the blood.” Even so, I know full well that there were times when I did not fully understand the power of the blood, yet  my faith was fully grounded in the power of the Name of Jesus and I have had a modicum of success with casting out demons.  However, the power of His name comes from the power of the cross, the blood and the resurrection.

In order for a deliverance to occur and be long lasting, it is important that both the worker and the captive realize that being crucified to the world is essential to a complete victory over the enemy.  Yet in order to fully understand how to be crucified to the world, the terms need to be defined.

First of all, the world is not the earth.  The world is an invisible group of “systems” that the enemy of our souls is still the god of.  So in simple terms, if Jesus Christ of Nazareth is not Lord over a particular system, that system is a part of THE WORLD.  Put another way, if Christ is not the head of it, it is “the world.”  That includes people, places and things.  For example, if Christ is not the head of your family, then your family is “THE WORLD.”  If Christ is not the head of your school, then your school is “THE WORLD.” If Christ is not the head of your career, your sport, whatever, it is THE WORLD. If Christ is not the head of your church, SHE IS THE WORLD!

Actually, ALL religious systems are a part of THE WORLD, if Jesus Christ of Nazareth is not the head of them.   Christianity and the organized church are a significant part of the religious WORLD. If you are born again, you must be crucified with Christ  to the religious world. Since the religious world includes the organized church system, you must be crucified to Her. If you love the organized church system, then you are a lover of the world.

There are other blogs where I explain why the organized church is a part of the religious world and must be rejected.  Just know that what I write herein is premised on the fact that I believe it was the Lord who spoke to me in 2007 and said that “He has already judged the organized church and that the Holy Ghost has been removed.”  So as I am dead to the world, I am also dead to the organized church and her practices. I don’t argue that point with anyone.  I simply walk by faith and not by sight.  The organized church is quite “visible” yet She is dead to me and I have buried Her.

According the word of God, the cross of Jesus is the great separator between the Lord and every aspect of the world.  Consider Lot’s wife.  When God was destroying Sodom–the visible world—He warned those He was about to deliver “not to look back.”  Looking back was a sign of a love for Sodom and the things of the sodomite world.  Today, some seek deliverance yet like Lot’s wife, the cross has not separated them from the longing that still remains in their hearts for the world.

Two years ago for my 65th birthday, I planned to celebrate by attending a gospel fest held in a Pentecostal church during the holiday season.  I thought to myself, “What could be the harm? After all, there would be no preaching, but only worship through song.  So I ordered 4 tickets. 

Two days later, I heard in the spirit very clearly, “ARE YOU LOT’S WIFE?”

Four little words!  Believe, me folk! My imagination was live! lol No more needed to be said.  I cancelled the tickets with a quickness! Think of it!!! I was planning to return to the enemy’s territory, “to worship God!”  The bottomline is that I was “looking back”, possibly TO GO BACK! Who knows but God. A very bad move  AFTER God had delivered me out of the oppression of the enemy that I had withstood for 25 years!!!.  This is what I believe.  If I  had attended that service, my days of celebrating birthdays would have come to an abrupt end.  The fear of the Lord came on me, a fear that is  the beginning of wisdom!

Some have left the world, even the church world, but like Lot’s wife, the cross has not separated them from the longing that remains in their hearts for the world. So I warn everyone who has an ear to hear and an eye to see.  There is a religious world in our times  which is far more dangerous tha other systems that are obviously evil and a part of Satan’s domain. This religious world consists of professing Christians who deny the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ in more ways than one.

You see the cross symbolizes deliverance from this present evil age (Gal 1:4),—from the powers of darkness (Col 1:13)—from the devils and demons who rule the world under their leader, Satan–(Eph 6:12) and—-on the resurrection side of the cross—WE ARE TRANSLATED INTO THE KINDOM OF THE SON OF GOD! When we plead the blood, we are telling the enemy that we are dead to his world, that he no longer has authority over us, that we walk in that same power that raised Jesus from the dead. 

Yet–if we look back—Satan treats us as if we were “Lot’s wife.” The cross and the resurrection loses its victory in our lives.  If the world STILL has the power to attract us or to influence our spiritual walk, then we are not crucified.  If we are not crucified, then we are open and vulnerable to demonic attacks and the fate of Lot’s wife can be OUR fate.

We arrive on the resurrection side of the cross only AFTER we have been crucified to the world.  No crucifixion? No power to defeat the enemy. For we overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb! Pleading the blood is of no consequence to demons if the one who stands as a deliverer of captives is not crucified to the world.

DELIVERANCE AND THE 7 CHAKRAS

THE SEVEN CHAKRAS

 There are seven psychic gates  in the human body that occultists call chakras: The crown of the head,  the forehead between the eyes called the 3rd eye, the throat, the heart,  the navel, the sex organs and the anus. In his testimony, former  grandmaster occultist, “Eric” revealed that these 7 openings are sealed  by God and opened by man through sin.  When they are opened, spirits are  able to pass through these gates or doorways, several at a time.

About  5 years ago, I counseled a very religious man, an Asian who had been  dedicated as a child to Hindu gods, converted as an adult to  Christianity, studying to be a minister in seminary and a member of a  7th day Adventist church. He came to me because he was hearing  condemning, accusatory voices throughout each day.  In counseling we  discovered that “James” was not saved. James has been a long time  practitioner of yoga, a spiritual discipline whose goals are to “open  the 7 gateways.” James’s gateways were wide open. The Lord gave James a  dream, showing him that over each chakra, sat a Hindu diety, aka a  demon–as follows:

1. The crown—Shiva   2. The Third Eye—Hakini  3. the Throat—Savashiva

4. The Heart—Isha  5. the Navel—Vahni 5. 6.The sex organs Vishnu and Rakeeni,

7. The Anus—Brahma.

During  the  telephone deliverance session, James discerned that scores of  demons were running in and out of each of his gates.  So to stop this, I  had to close the gates by casting out each of the 7 dieties. Calling  them by their Hindu names, one by one, they came out roaring, cursing,  screaming and speaking in tongues.  By the way, James had never spoken  in tongues, other than in the  session.

This was a unique  deliverance.  I had never heard of any such thing before or since.  However, after reading what Eric had to say, I will certainly perform  this ritual with others. James was not only delivered of the torment,  but all of his religiosity completely disappeared.

Eric reports  in his book that he has projected himself into the bodies of weak  pastors through the 7th gateway, the anus. When “inside”, he would  evaluate the pastor’s spiritual power through his aura, a feat that Eric  accomplished in two minutes. If the aura is a certain color, then Eric  knows the person is weak in faith. In most cases, the power of the  pastor was weak because of fornication. In his own words, “There are  many men, women, boys and girls who are ravening wolves or agents of  different demons, operating in different churches all over the world.  Women and girls are more in this connection then men. The presence of  such agents in Christian churches will always guide astral spirits on  how to advance their manipulations against Christians.”

According to Eric, the sins that open the 7 gates are:

1. sexual intercourse with a demon in a dream or sex with a prostitute

2. drugs

3. visiting a fortuneteller

4. receiving healing through occult powers

5. reading occult books.

6.  Anger. (By anger, demons transmit certain diseases or sicknesses.  Demons will manipulate people to seek solutions from witches and  occultist—a psychic healer—who himself is an agent of demons in  disguise.

This is no surprise to me. My Deliverance Assessment  Form gleans this kind of information from clients.  What Eric confirms  for me is that human spirits, witches and warlocks, and people skilled  in astral travel can enter into one or more of the 7 gates with their  own spirits, and function as if they were a demon spirit. Now I  understand why the Holy Spirit has often led me to call the spirit by  name—a mother, father, relative, rapist, any human being who has put  my client into bondage.

THE SOUL AND FALSE CONVERSION

HOW A FALSE CONVERSION OCCURS

Because the spirit and the soul are not separate but  tightly knitted or braided  around each other as are  the ligaments, marrow and jonts in our legs, it is difficult to discern the difference between the two.  The soul is easiest to recognize because the concerns and needs of “self” are generally apparent.  We recognize the “body” side of the soul because we can see the results through the activity of the natural frame.  We can see selfishness, ambition, competition, and jealousy  because the body,  through material and natural things, will engage in scenarios that expose self striving.   

However, where we fall short is in our ability  to discern the soul from the spirit, which is also “flesh.” I am considering a gospel account of the words of the Lord when a funeral procession went by. He turn to his disciples and said, “let the dead bury the dead.”  How can the dead bury the dead? What Jesus was actually saying is “let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead.” Those who are alive in both the body and the soul have a dead spirit.  A dead spirit is one that is separated, alienated, and without God in the world.  That is a dead spirit.  It doesn’t mean that there is no awareness or activity in the spirit.

The spirit of the lost is very much alive in the kingdom of darkness, but he or she is alienated from the kingdom of heaven. It makes itself known through various nightmares and irrational fears.  When it is active, man’s dead spirit is open to the hellish dark world of spirits ruled over by the Prince of darkness. When it is both active AND powerful, the spirit is capable of a variety of supernatural feats including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience and astral travel or out of body experiences.

When a lost or alienated person “accepts Jesus” as Lord and Savior, it can’t be the spirit who does so because the spirit  of that person is dead, alienated, and walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in those who are disobedient by the lust of their flesh.  In such a condition, the soul has to take over.  In the lost, the soul fulfills the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and the lost person has the nature of self consciousness.

So since a dead spirit cannot “accept God,” the soul takes over in its parts: mind, emotions and volition or will and says, “I accept Jesus as Lord and Savior” and begins a religious ritual that imitates intimacy and relationship. The working of the enemy through the mind or ideas of man quenches the work of the Holy Ghost to quicken that person’s spirit.  For the powers of darkness are keenly clever in working alongside of and simulating the born again experience.

When a person is REALLY born again, the soul takes a back seat.  The Holy Ghost “quickens” the spirit through repentance. As defined by Paul to the Ephesians, to quicken means to be made alive.  As Jesus Christ was raised from the dead physically or bodily, to be born again is to be raised from the dead spiritually. In other words, a dead spirit has been raised to becoming a vessel for the Holy Ghost.  Since the spirit does not have a will, volition is a choice or decision made by the soul.  What the spirit has is intuition. Paul revealed that the reason the spirit is raise from the dead is because “God is rich in mercy.” So the resurrection of the spirit begins in the intuition and then translated into  understanding  by the soul.

When the soul “accepts Jesus,” the spirit remains dead but with great acting skills, the soul can religiously  imitate the things of God. The fallen spirit of man, alienated and separated from God is sunk down into the soul so that the soul manifests as intellect or sensuality, often in both. In such cases, the soul reigns over both the spirit and the body. The way that the new life reaches the spirit is shown in the Lord’s own words: You must be born again.  The Holy Ghost “breathes” where ever He chooses. This is not the decision of man but the will of God.

The believer who has been raised from the dead in the spirit to newness of like is born of the Spirit or “born again.” The Holy Ghost, who takes up a dwelling place in the reborn spirit, has given the believer a revelation of the Cross and the Lord’s resurrection. This revelation is first received in the spirit. As James indicates in his letter, the wisdom that is from above—from the Holy Spirit—is pure, peaceable, gentle, merciful—without any element of the life of the soul—opinions, self views, strife-jealousy. So when a person is born again, the spirit imparts  understanding  to the soul through the mind, will and the emotions.

What is happening among those who claim that “they accepted Jesus,” is that they have done so through the soul and therefore, their spirits have remained dead.  The intellect of one whose spirit is dead is decidedly fallible and becomes the most dangerous of the soul’s gifts because God seekers use their minds to understand spiritual truths.  The scriptures reveal that the soulish man cannot receive the things of the Spirit, because they can only be spiritually discerned.

According to the late great Jessie Penn Lewis, “It is the soulish element in teachers and professors of holiness, which is often the cause of separation and disunion.  There may be, it is true, love in the heart to those who ‘differ,’ but the ‘differences’ divide nevertheless, because the demoniacal powers, able to work upon the soulish element in the believer, always emphasize or exaggerate the difference in “views of truth,” instead of magnifying the points of union, and even drive eager believers to ‘fight’ for their view of ‘truth,‘ under the name of ‘witnessing for God.” It us also the soulish element in Christians which insists upon the minute correspondence of others its ‘views of truth,’ and ‘tithe mint and anise and cumin’, in words whilst leaving ‘undone the weightier matters of the law’—which in the gospel dispensation of the Spirit between believers as the condition of their growth into ‘unity of the faith. ‘In brief, the soul-life, influenced by evil supernatural powers, is the main cause of divisions and separation among the professing, and even the true children of God.”

For this reason as pointed out by Sis. Jessie, the churches are filled with nominal worshippers of Christ, who show no marks of a true Christian life within them. In a nutshell, influences that bypass the spirit and only reach the soul may prepare the way by bringing the seeker within the reach of the truth which is read from the scriptures.  Outer strivings may make for a kind  self righteousness that  has a value and place in the world.  However, by virtue of these outer trappings, such seekers  will be fooled into believing that the strivings of the soul is evidence that he or she is born again.  Not so.  Since God views self righteous as filthy rags, the spirits of such seekers is untouched. Dead.  Alienated.  Without God.

Those whose souls imitate salvation are diversified.  Dynamic personalities   sway and move the emotions of others.  Their fruit—like TD Jakes for example—is to move the emotions of the soul.  The problem is that the faith of the hearers stands in the influence or wisdom of people like TD, and not in the power of God.  Intellectuals uses schemes to reach men and bring them to God, some preaching hell and damnation to frighten people to God, others using heaven, prosperity, gospelfests, social fellowship, networking  etc.

The outcome is that people are attracted to the fake Jesus, and not of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What happens is a dangerous thing, so dangerous, that I will have to address it in more detail Part III. Suffice it to say for now, that people who are deceived into believing that they got born again, STILL have a dead spirit.  When dead, the spirit is susceptible to the evil side of the spirit world where psychic power is mistaken for the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Consequently, unsaved people are speaking in tongues, laying hands on others, imparting demons into vulnerable people.  Also, when people with dead spirits pray to the Father in the name of His Son, the one who answers their prayers is the imposter, the Fake Jesus.

Can a person whose spirit has been quickened STILL allow his or her soul to dominate?  Most decidedly YES. These are those who have a sensual relationship with Jesus.  When they speak of “being in His presence,” they are not satisfied unless they can feel the presence of God continually upon their flesh, and almost bi-polar in the spirit, they experience loads of ups and downs akin to spiritual mood swings.  They need to be taught how to walk by faith and not by sight or feeling.  Although the Holy Spirit dwells in their spirits, they often allow the soul to predominate because they do not understand the spirit life and the actions of the human spirit in co-action with God.

Deliverance Ministry

MY PERSPECTIVE ON DELIVERANCE MINISTRY

A  simple rule of thumb is that anything that is too complicated, too confusing is a clue that the enemy is involved in it. Deliverance ministry as it has been named and practiced since the early 1970’s is quite complicated, quite confusing.For example, why does a deliverance worker have to know the name of every single demon that he or she confronts? Certainly, demons exist and as the Lord commisssioned His first followers 2000 years ago, born again people have the power to cast them out.

Yet we need to be cautious of any movement where God is not sovereign. Since the 70’s, a ministry has developed where deliverance specialists are like spiritual lawyers who have to figure out the spiritual contracts of the universe by which demons operate by  a huge spiritual lawbook that explains how the law  that may or may not apply.From the Jezebel spirit, to generational curses, to territorial spirits, to binding and loosing, the more complicated that deliverance ministry gets,the greater the disadvantage.

The reality is that angels and demons have been navigating the spirit world for several thousand years.  Put to a tremendous disadvantage, what has happened in deliverance ministry is that workers are forced to question demons to find out needed information in a futile attempt to outsmart and beat evil spirits at their own rules!!!! Now that doesn”t make much sense to me and I can see the hand of the fake Jesus in this.The more complicated the process, the more in control Satan’s kingdom remains.

I have been battling with demons since 1983, so  I have seen how the enemy has tried to dupe me over the years  by complicating deliverance. So today, I stand on a few  essential, un-complicated truths, taken out  of the mouth of Jesus.  First, it is the truth that sets captives free, once the truth is known. So casting out demons indiscriminately will not bring freedom to a captive that refuses to face the truth.  The truth has to be received in doses because most captives have built up a huge wall of defense mechanisms in their soul to block truth.  Also, an evil tree doesn’t bring forth good fruit. So I examine the roots and the fruit in a captive’s life. The enemy can’t attack a believer without God’s permission.  So rather than seek demons for answers, the wise thing to do is to seek God.

I believe  that captives will only become free when they can accept responsibility for allowing themselves to be spiritually victimized. A captive who has not faced himself can only see and feel in the flesh because he has been blinded from true self perception in the spirit. Therefore, he may find it difficult to recognize how much his own sensitivities and hostilities have caused him to be vulnerable to demons. Without facing his true self, deliverance will be mature. In a search for demonic doorways, I begin the deliverance counseling process by plowing the ground of the captive’s soul.

THE TRANCE IN ENDTIMES

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE TRANCE IN END TIMES

The Holy Ghost stepped into my occult world and brought me to the cross,  without my even seeking God. Remarkably,with in the twinkling of an eye, I was snatched out of a fallen angel’s hands on March 29, 1977 at 4pm on a Monday. So when I began to do the research in 2007 for the book “the Fake Jesus,” my intention as a former occultist transformed into a woman of God, was to “spy out the Land that I formerly dwelled in.”

The purpose of my investigation was an attempt to answer 4 questions: 1. What are the fallen angels telling their occult followers? 2. What is their endtime agenda? 3. How do the fallen angels plan to implement that agenda? 4. How can the elect of God protect themselves from it?  Throughout the research, one key word stood out: the altered state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.”

In 1974, I was two dimensional: just body and mind—a concrete, down to earth, rational thinker. Every thing changed when I began to study and practice relaxation therapy and hypnosis on myself and in my profession. I opened up my psychic powers, latent in my dead, un-saved spirit.  Within months, I found myself in a dangerous whirlwind of every facet of mediumship: out of body experiences, divination, poltergeist, astrology, reincarnation, communication with fallen angels who first masquaraded as the dead, seeing spirits, hearing them speak, spirits walking into me and speaking in voices different from my own—you name it.  Just a few  months after regularly  putting myself into a trance, my spirit was wide open for demons to walk in and out, say and do whatever they wanted to do.

So as a former hypnotist, I know a little something about trances. Anyway, what I discovered is the absolute necessity of the trance to fallen angels. First of all, without the trance, it is very difficult for fallen angels to communicate with human beings.  SO THEY REALLY NEED THE TRANCE TO MAKE THEIR DESIRES KNOWN. Besides hypnosis, yoga, chanting and various forms of meditation, the trance or the ASC is obtainable by several methods and ways—drugs, sex, habits, rituals, routines and repetitive actions, trauma, and something that the founder of sociology, Max Weber labeled “communal intoxication.”

Communal intoxication is the supernatural ability of magicians, wizards, witches, and CHARISMATIC RELIGIOUS LEADERS. Such leaders induce the ASC in their followers, including but not limited to convulsions, shouting, “holy” laughter, slain in the spirit, “holy” rollers and what is now being referred to as the kundalini spirit of charismatic witchcraft.Also, and MOST important, any one who speaks in what charismatics and pentecostals call “a prayer language” where their minds are unfruitful, enters into an altered state of consciousness. I know.  I did so for 25 years. I don’t—-ANY MORE!!!

I aim to keep this post as short as possible, so I will get right to my point. Simply put,what I discovered is that the top fallen angel who is called Maitreya, plans to perform a feat in the endtimes that requires a global use of THE TRANCE. It also involves untold millions of lower ranking demons—the ones who are assigned to you and to me. Benjamin Creme, knicknamed the John the Baptist of Maitreya, has revealed the endtime agenda of Maitreya.  To prove that Satan is God, Matreiya plans to telepathically speak and say the exact same thing at the exact  same time to all of mankind—at least to those who have been groomed IN THE TRANCE.  Since neither Satan nor any fallen angel can be in more than one place at a time, it is a trick.  The demons who are IN human beings through the trance will each be speaking to the one they have been grooming in the trance  through drugs, meditation, slain in the spirit, “whatever!!!

In this way, they will stage a magical farce, where the fake Jesus will appear to be God: Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent—ALL KNOWING, ALL POWERFUL, AND EVERYWHERE PRESENT!
