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 4

“Leave the church: A Historical Perspective of “the Great Falling Away.”

By Pam Sheppard

Once I heard in a supernatural way that the organized church had already been judged, I decided to try the spirits to see if they be of “God by studying church history.  History was not one of my favorite subjects, but my hypothesis was that if the church had already been judged, history would reveal the truth.

I began with the premise that we are in the generation of the 7th church age.  In the first 3 chapters of the book of Revelation, the Lord spoke to each church age.  I was able to pinpoint and find in the history books each church age:  Ephesus as the first age of those who lived in the generation of the Lord’s crucifixion, resurrection and after the ascension.  The persecuted church at Smryna lined up and overlapped the first age, under cruel Roman domination, with the saints being crucified upside down, beheaded, and stoned to death.

 With the rise of the Roman Emperor, Constantine, the organized church was established with the compromising church at Pergamos, which eventually  became the Catholic Church.  History revealed that the churches at Thyatira and Sardis are tao phases of Catholic Domination that spans several centuries until Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation of the 1500′s. Protestantism was the Lord’s favored church, from 1500 to 1900 when it too became as corrupted as the Catholic Church.

The age of Laodicea is the LAST church age, and we are living in it.  It consists of an idolatrous, charismatic witchcraft Catholic AND Protestant church.  While the Catholics have perverted the gospel of Jesus Christ with the deification of Mary and the worship of various saints, Protestantism is equally perverse. By studying church history, it became clear to me that the 7th and last age of Laodicea is a fulfillment of the Apostle’s Paul’s predictions that in the last days, there would be a great “falling away.” Paul warned the Galatians that all who add to or detract from the gospel of Jesus Christ would be cursed.  He also warned that some would depart from the faith because they listened to seducing spirits teach doctrines of devils. I didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to discern that there are far too many doctrines of devils for me to even try to count today.

However, the two most powerful ones—more powerful than the prosperity gospel–is the easy believism or the “I accept Jesus into my heart” gospel and the speaking in other tongues.

The “I accept Jesus” practice was first started by Charles Finney.  Born in 1792, Finney is a hero of Billy Graham and many other well-known evangelists of today.  In no uncertain terms, Finney preached that man can save himself by making a conscious decision to simply “cooperate with God.”  Therefore, Finney is the founding father of practically ALL of Protestantism, both traditional and emergent churches, denominational and charismatic churches who all teach an “I accept Jesus” gospel.

Add to the “I accept Jesus” crowd, those who abide by the Pentecostal teaching that the evidence of salvation is that you speak in tongues, and you have the other half of “the great falling away.” These two false doctrines combined, have caused countless seekers to “fall away.”  To fall away is not necessarily to physically depart.  For most of those who have already joined the ranks of the great falling away attend some church every Sunday morning.

Regarding tongues, it is a doorway for demons to enter human flesh.  Since the tongue talker allows his or her mind to enter into passivity while uttering, speaking in tongues causes Christians to unknowingly enter into an altered state of consciousness.  Under such circumstances, spirit entities are provided an opportunity to torment, oppress and possess.

Satan has had an agenda to infiltrate and control the organized visible church since the days that the Emperor Constantine organized it, in 313 AD.  He has been working for quite a few centuries. His mission was accomplished in the 20th century.

For these reasons, I warn: Leave the Church.  God is not there.

Two books, “The Fake Jesus” and “The New Idolatry” detail historical proof that God was not the founder of the organized church. Yet for many centuries, His longsuffering and mercy endured. Both books historically connect the dots.  To review and/or obtain the ebooks, click here.
