Deliverance ministry? I never heard of it. I never heard of it in the churches I was in. I think you know what I’m talking about. Here’s a scenario: You go to a church, you’re a recovering drug addict, a recovering alcoholic, or suffer from clinical depression. You may still be drinking, drugging, and as depressed as a wild bird in a tiny gilded cage. But you desperately want to get free.
You get into a church and tell your story, folks look at you like you came from Mars. Then they keep telling you to ” stand on the word “.
You are newcomer in church, and have absolutely no idea what that means. You’re looking for deliverance, but the pastor has no real clue, as to what you’re talking about. And you better not have any kind of crisis in church, folks will creep backwards towards the emergency exit. The pastor will nervously give you a referral to AA or a psychiatrist .Deliverance ministry is not on the churches menu of services. You are up the creek without a paddle, cast back into world to get secular help.
You wonder about Jesus, and how he cast out demons. You have the sense to know, that yours is not their regular case. Everyone in the church pretends that demons don’t exist. When you say Jesus cast them out, so they must exist. The pastor tells you you’re a radical. The pastor tells you we don’t do that here. We don’t specialize in deliverance ministry. You wonder, what kind of pastor is this?
The pastor doesn’t cast out demons, or deal with demonic afflictions. Say what? To add insult to injury, he doesn’t know anyone involved in deliverance ministry. There you are, a newbie in church, with demons riding your back like a pack of monkeys. The people who are supposed to know all about deliverance haven’t got a clue. You just make them nervous. So you sit in the church for 50 years, go to the counselor and take the pills. And since you also have the drinking problem, you become a lifelong member in AA for 50 years. You wonder, where is my victory in Christ? I’m worst than I was before I got in this church.
Does this scenario sound familiar? Enter Pamela Sheppard…
Pam Sheppard made this statement in a recent article…
Pam writes: If the deceived and bound have not heard it already, they will hear the Lord say ” I never knew you “. And the fault will be that of the ministers who are complicating the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through what I am learning as I practice my profession of counseling, obviously the church models of today aren’t working. When people can sit in church and listen to sermon after sermon for 50 years and still not be saved, organized church is not working…..when captives can go to their pastor seeking relief from bondage only to hear ” stand on the word”–a word that neither the pastor or captive understands…it is NOT working.
My friends, call the number now. Church is just not working. You know it, and I know it. If your ready to get off the pretense and folly of churches that just don’t or won’t teach the Gospel in its entirety, and are in denial about the obvious wiles of the devil, call Pam now. If your suffering from any type of affliction, or bondage call Pam now. You’ll finally be talking to someone who truly does what Jesus did. Pam Sheppard is a specialist in deliverance counseling. The phone number for immediate help and assistance is (518) 477-5759. The phone lines are open.
P.S. This article may seem quite funny to you. Well, I was the person in church for years suffering from depression, which is a spirit. I finally just decided to believe Jesus, and ignore the organized church. I cast that spirit from myself in Jesus’s name.. I also had a drug problem. I was not a drinker though. The above story is just an illustration. But the theme was the same for me. I was in a church where the pastor thought casting out demons was radical, he also had no one he could refer me to. The article probably has a touch of humor, simply because I’m too too delighted to be in training for deliverance ministry under Pam Sheppard. She developed her own deliverance model of cursing the very root of demonic affliction and possession. By the time she finishes with you you’ll be straight and free, if that is your true desire.
Domestic violence is rarely handled effectively by the church. Shame and blame is often cast upon the backs of women who are victims. This is last of a series, on what women can do if pastors or Christian leaders give off color advice, such as advising victims to obey their husbands. But God supports your decision to leave violent abusers. Psalm 19:48 says that you have been delivered from the violent man. Why would God want you to stay in a violent, domestic violence household.
I’ve been in a domestic violence situation, and I can tell you this: Jesus Christ of Nazareth ,did not die on the cross for God’s daughters would remain in bondage to violence. If the Son has truly set you free, you are free indeed. Good Christian men exist, the violent man is an exception. You can learn to forgive your husband, or the one who is inflicting violence upon you. But first and foremost—-Get yourself and children to SAFTY.

The devil will put strongholds meant to stop you from taking authority by helping yourself. Don’t feel ashamed. Only feel shame, if you are a person with no intentions of helping yourself and children.
Last, but not least, don’t be fooled by a violent man’s promise to change. He will promise you the moon, but the next time he abuses, you could end up dead. Abusers blow hot air, and lie. Remember that domestic violence is a crime punishable by law.
The Christian women’s answer to domestic violence puts you in charge. Abusers will not change unless you give them a reason to you. If you stay you give a silent message that violence on your person is acceptable. God’s helping hands can’t embrace you fully, if your living in sin. It is a sin to put yourself and your children in harms way. Also, by continuing to live with violent spouses you hold up their salvation, and your own. If you stay, your going against God’s las of love.

What is the Christian women’s answer to domestic violence? How can a woman cope with ministers who cheer abusive husbands on? How can Christian women get help, when the word of God is being used to manipulate her? The following steps should help you understand whatt to do:
1. Realize that a loving God does not approve of you remaining with a man who puts his hands on you. You must use common sense, and keep a clear head. I was once in a domestic violence situation, I know what you are going through. But my sympathy will not help you. You have to make the move to help yourself.

A person is recovered when he or she has taken back control of his own soul. Although Satan will do everything in his power to regain his control, a recovered person is sober not only as a drug or alcohol-free person, but he or she is vigilant, watchful and wise,— prepared for the demon’s counterattack.
Sheppard’s Counseling Center has developed a Christed centered recovery model called RECOVERY IN CHRIST OR THE RIC PROGRAM
Recovery in Christ is a manual of recovery from addiction and other bondages by Pam Sheppard
Although a recovered person is no longer an addict but a child of God, he or she is aware that there is a weakl based upon 7 keysness in his or her flesh that has a predisposition to relapse. Therefore, a recovered person has a relapse prevention plan that includesbut is not limited to:
1.living by God’s word—the person begins to live the reality of the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus Christ—that before he or she believed on Christ, he was an addict, but as a born again believer, he or she is washed, or in other words “clean”by faith in His word. (I
2.delighting in the Lord—the person has pursued the fruit of joy and peace, by an active commitmentto lifestyle of prayer, praise and thanksgiving. His offering of praise to the Lord operates as a cover of\clothing that protects him or her from the return of the “addiction spirit.” (Isaiah 6:3)
3.submitting to the cross-–the person has found out the root cause of his or her addiction by allowinghis flesh to be crucified. Whether or not addiction was linked to the sin of rebellion, selfi shness, selfcenteredness or pleasure seeking, he is committed to obey God’s word. The most important area of
discipline is that a recovered person has learned to control his tongue. The control of the tongue is the key to spiritual empowerment and recovery, because “if anyone does not stumble in word, he or she is a perfect man, able to bridle or control his own body, including his predisposition to addiction.” (James
4.seeking right fellowship—the person has learned that to love the world is to be an enemy towards God. Therefore, he or she chooses his relationships not by the desires of his fl esh, but by the spirit. He or she will not seek counsel from the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scornful. He or she has learned how to live among unbelievers without becoming “one” with them. He has learned how to overcome the pain of separating oneself from people of unhealthy influences and to do it with the wisdom, mercy and grace of God.
5.embracing the vision — He views himself as an important member of the the Body of Jesus Christ, with a mission and a vision for service. Armed with the courage of his own convictions, he is not easily discouraged, walking by faith and not by sight. Faithful and committed to the few things, he is committed to share his strengths and his struggles.
6.walking in the witness of the Spirit-–the person is blessed with a thirst for the Lord and His righteousness that has replaced his or her thirst for craving for the thing or substance that formerly had him or her bound and captive. As the scripture says: Be not drunk with wine but be fi lled with the
Spirit of God. As demonstrated by the words of the mouth and the selection of priorities, he or she has grown from having addiction or being clean and sober as the center of his life. As a result, He has overcome Satan by the word of his testimony. His testimony is a personal witness to the healing power of the Holy Spirit. His witness is capable of drawing others to the cross.
7.connecting with believers—He does not neglect meeting with his brothers and sisters in Christ. Committed to his spiritual mentor and to other Christians, he comes together with the brethren to intensively explore his own character defects and to share his victories. Coming together online as oppsed to gathering face to face is acceptable.
