Throw Jonah OVERBOARD!!!!

By Pamela Sheppard

RESISTANCE BY REFUSAL

Consider Jonah and his disobedience and sudden flight from God to a ship filled with men about to be shipwrecked because of Jonah’s
folly. So to find out why they suddenly entered into a severe storm, the men on board cast lots and the lot fell to Jonah. Once Jonah was revealed, he confessed. You would have thought that the men would have immediately picked up Jonah and thrown him off of the ship. Instead, they tried to row faster. Yet when all human effort failed, they reluctantly threw Jonah overboard and peace immediately prevailed for them.

Why didn’t Jonah just jump overboard himself?

Perhaps it was not physically possible and he needed someone to lift him up and cast him into the sea. My suspicion is that as it is in most cases, the people who are bringing storms into our lives are “all about self,” especially when their needs are being met by us.
However what I have learned by experience, is that once the cause of an attack has been uncovered or revealed to me, my next step is to refuse. Sometimes you have to refuse a condition or persuasion that is within your personality or in other words, a refusal may have to be made to your flesh.

For example, if you are a person that must be liked or approved of by others, you will have to refuse your flesh in this regard. If you can answer an emphatic “yes,” to the following statements as conditions of your own flesh,refusal will eventually be in order, if you are going to effectively resist the devil:

 · I try to avoid being alone
· I let other people decide what to do.
· I get upset when people don’t include me in their activities;
· I am stressed if I don’t include other people in my plans;
· I am easily led;
· I hate any form of confrontation;
· I can’t stand being left out of things;
· I am emotionally dependent upon people.

So one way to crucify your flesh is by refusing to act out its nature. Besides refusing your former nature without Christ, there are times when you also have to refuse your former perception or understanding as it relates to spiritual and religious matters. In fact, refusal is one of the ways that we cast down our imaginations, and every thought that is contrary to our obedience to the inner leadings of the Holy Ghost.

For example, if you have assumed that God would not allow the enemy to deceive you under any circumstances, to resist the devil that is assigned to you, you will have to refuse every thought connected to this false assumption. I personally know from experience that I can be deceived by the enemy because I have been, several times in fact.

Here is a personal example. It has been revealed to me that in 1996, I founded a church based upon the nature of my flesh and the leading of the religious demon assigned to me. Certainly, I believed that I was led by God at the time. However, with the discernment and the enlightenment that I have received over time, I can look back now with such understanding.

What was confusing and complicated in 1996 is obvious and simple today.  Once my eyes were fully opened in 2008, I had to exercise refusal by closing the church doors.  Certainly I had to face opposition to closing it. In fact, for a year, services continued in a members home, until her eyes were also opened and the doors of the church were permanently shut, never to open again.  As soon as I took the first step of refusal as I resisted the devil, the next revelation followed.

Since the enemy was the secret force that led me to start this church in the first place, it logically and spiritually follows that each and every person who played a significant role in its operations was sent by the enemy also. In years, several people were involved. Out of all of them, I have contact with two persons from the former church.  Recently, I had a inner sense in my spirit that I was to “back up” in these two relationships.

Since our contact is infrequent, it was not difficult to do. Actually, I have withdrawn in ways that are really not discernible to people
who are busy in the world, living their lives as the world does. So as sleeping dogs lie, people have naturally faded out of my life, without knowing my concerns and reservations. Well, after six years without any personal contact, a former church member who I will call Diana contacted me through facebook.

While Diana was a member, she was perhaps the most involved in my ministry.  Consequently, I discerned immediately that I could
not accept this request. So rather than refuse it, I simply ignored it.  About 3 weeks later, I was half asleep when I heard a voice say to me “Diana is dead.” I ignored the voice and went to sleep. Yet as I woke, the voice repeated it again. I heard “Diana is dead” a second time . Once awake, my mind was filled with accusations. “Diana is not quite dead, but her demise is imminent. You are mean and cold to deny her your facebook friendship.

She needs to be able to read your posts and articles in order to get her life in order before she passes away, and you are cruel to deny her that opportunity.”  My next thought was “this is different.”  Demons rarely accuse me or challenge me for the purpose of imposing guilt and condemnation on me because it doesn’t work. My personality does not readily accept guilt, shame or condemnation. Then when I realized that the enemy was caught in an obvious lie, I asked myself “what is the meaning of this. Doesn’t that demon know that my facebook page is not restricted to friends, but that it is open to he public? Doesn’t he know that Diana can visit my website and search through several videos, articles, newsletters, books, and other tools and resources?” I said to myself, ” most of the demons who deal with me are just not that stupid to be caught out there making such an obvious mistake.”

In two days, the demon’s motive became clear, for Diana sent me a second friendship invitation on facebook. Obviously, the demon KNEW that she would do so and he was setting the stage for me to accept it. Why this particular person?  Because she had been my most promising church member. There are issues between us that are un-resolved. From past experience, I know that a reactivated friendship with Diana would not only be distracting and draining, but clearly, she is a receptive vessel for their use.

The demons desired and then led Diana to contact me, and after 6 years of silence. Worth mentioning, since I remain fond of her, the
enemy hoped that if I thought that her life was about to end, I would accept her facebook request and disobey the revelation that is in my spirit which is “don’t look back. Everyone, including Diana, was sent to you by the devil in the past. Don’t give place to the enemy again.”

So what did I do? Obviously, ignoring the first request did not work. So I had to refuse it. I sent Diana a private facebook message, explaining the situation in a direct yet tactful way, so that she graciously responded without feeling personally rejected.  I am not refusing Diana or any of the other former members. I am resisting the devil that is assigned to me. There is a difference.

Once you overcome a fear of personal and social rejection, the tool of refusal will cause the devil to flee from you.

Do you have relationships, old soul tires, associations and the such that are hard to break?  In particular, with past church people who God has clearly warned you about to stay away from them?

The Many Masks of the Spirit of Antichrist

Many have heard of the spirit of Antichrist.  When we hear of this spirit, we think of something openly, blatantly evil, easily recognizable.  We believe that this spirit will announce itself to the world, to the church, much like the wide open forum that President Obama has when he gives the State of the Union address.

This is NOT so.

Because the enemy knows that he was to fool, to deceive, the very elect, that means he has upped the ante on how he manifests himself.  The Word of God states that satan has seat in the institutional church (Revelations 2:13).  We would laugh and joke about sitting in the first lady’s seat or the mother’s seat in the front of the church…but few churchgoers even realize that right in the midst of their ‘holy’ tabernacle, their devout temples, their powerful ministries-replete with many signs and wonders and operations of the gifts of the spirit…that satan has a SEAT…RIGHT THERE!

His seat doesn’t have his name on it, or he would be found out.

His seat exists in the institutional church…no doubt.

WHERE?

I know you have heard a lot of talk on religious spirits.  If you are new to church (as we know it), or if  you’ve been in church for over 40 years, this term may baffle you because you have been taught that – as the song goes ‘Religion SO sweet…’

We all have been lulled into a semi- or fully-delusional state where we are drugged into believing something we know deep down inside ‘just isn’t right.’  We just went to church and went along with the programs to get along.  We didn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak, out of fear that we would be labeled ‘rebellious,’ ‘unfaithful,’ ‘unteachable,’ or a host of other names leadership likes to place on thinking people who were blessed with common sense AND wisdom to know game when they see it.

Yet even the most discerning, the most wise, the most street-wise of us check our brains in at the door of a church once we enter therein.  We erroneously think that we are NOT supposed to use the wisdom and common sense GOD HIMSELF has blessed us with once we walk through the doors of a church.  We erroneously believe that God does NOT deal with our minds at all.  So any inkling deep down in our guts and minds that game is being played we suppress that, thinking that it’s the devil trying to get us ‘out of the ship.’

How do we properly discern a Religious Spirit?

Well, for starters, I want to present to you that after we are born again, we should not check in our brains at the door.  EVERYTHING that God has allowed you to learn-whether it was via books and a teacher, or on the streets, or by life experience-EVERYTHING has been allowed to happen in your life so that you can LEARN A LESSON from it.  The good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful.  We have to learn to not have any regrets…even over mistakes.

Human beings are learning creatures.  From the moment we are born into the earth, until the hour we breathe our last breath, we are supposed to be in a CONSTANT state of learning, and probably re-learning, too.

If your gut tells you something ain’t right, then TRUST YOUR INSTINCT!

A religious spirit knows how to look holy, righteous.  Just by first glance, you can’t tell the difference between a holy person and a religious one.  They will look just like the woman above.

But as time goes on, and you start spending time with that person, you will start to notice inconsistencies.  Certain things just wouldn’t line up.  You will start seeing glaring imperfections and brazen outright sin in their lives…but the more those weeds in their lives manifest, the more they try to COVER IT UP with works of righteousness, more church work, more random acts of kindness to strangers, more religious works.

The more works of religion and righteousness they do, you will begin to notice that their life does not line up with the Word of God.  They will sin and not be convicted of it.  They will not respond to the conviction of the Holy Ghost of sin and justify sin, or be in outright denial about their sinful state.  And the more they do this, the more active they get in the church.  They do more ‘church work,’ hold more revivals, conferences, and convocations, preach harder, prophesy harder…all in an effort to gain their OWN righteousness, to atone for their sins on their own.  Their mindset is ‘If I stay in church enough, that will make up for my fornicating last night,’ or ‘If I do A & B, then that will make up for my dealing drugs at that school…’

The demon starts to manifest by then.  And it looks a little something like this:

By now, the church lady is cussing, drinking, smoking, lying, threatening to cut folks.  When she goes to church, she has her hands upraised.  Praising God, speaking in tongues, running around the church, preaching….the whole nine.  But when you see her in situations that require her to have patience, she has none.  This religious spirit has NO patience.  It wants what it wants, when it wants it!  They gotta preach…NOW!  They gotta prophesy….NOW!  They gotta get married…NOW!  You wanna see if someone has a religious spirit, tell them NO…or WAIT.  If they go off in a tantrum, then you got a religious spirit on your hands!

A religious spirit also is very unaware of the very real fact that they are, too, flawed individuals…with sin.  They swim in a pool of SELF-DENIAL.  They are in self-denial about EVERYTHING.  But the one thing they are in self-denial about is the state of their own selves.

A religious spirit is a potentially dangerous spirit, for there is nothing-NOTHING-a religious spirit WON’T do to protect THEIR IMAGE!  THEIR IMAGE IS EVERYTHING TO THEM!!!  They don’t believe in self-exposure or disclosure.  When they fall into sin, drastic measures are taken to COVER UP their sin.  If the religious spirit is a pastor, he/she will employ the help of the church to participate in the cover up.  They will use fear tactics and mishandle the Word of God to manipulate and control people into doing what THEY want them to do.

A religious spirit NEEDS an entourage.  They need a following.  If they dont have anyone following them, they feel useless, rejected, persecuted even.  This is when a religious spirit-that demonic spirit-will FULLY manifest….right before your eyes!

A religious spirit is a proud one.  It won’t ever admit to being wrong, or doing wrong.

When you have discerned that you are dealing with a religious spirit, the only thing to do is to get away from them.  Because until the person comes into the realization and revelation that they have something DEMONIC that’s driving them to do things in church, or do ministry, or for a good cause, there is nothing that can be done for them.  Religious spirits are SO insidious and subtle that its hard to recognize….at first glance.  It takes TIME to observe a person in all their various atmospheres to determine if they have a religious spirit or not.

In ‘Faces of a Religious Demon’ by Pam Sheppard, many faces of the religious spirit/demon are exposed.  It is one of the most thorough teachings on religious spirits that I have ever read.

Addiction & Religion Go Hand In Hand..

I know you have heard a lot of talk on religious spirits.  If you are new to church (as we know it), or if  you’ve been in church for over 40 years, this term may baffle you because you have been taught that – as the song goes ‘Religion SO sweet…’

Karl Marx-a German philosopher-said ‘Religion is the opiate of the masses…’

What are opiates?  Opiates are nothing more than strong pain relievers. Examples of pain relievers are morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, and heroin.

I remember when I was giving birth to my youngest son.  The labor was progressing so quickly that the doctors did not have time to administer an epidural, so they gave me a morphine drip.  I remember being in a dull state, awake but knowing something was going on and I needed to be fully aware of what was going on so I could proceed.

Well, as any mother who has given birth knows, when given pain relievers such as morphine and epidurals, these narcotic pain relievers can actually delay or prolong birth.  This is what happened with my son.  Yes, he was born-eventually.  But he slept for almost two days after birth due to the abundance of morphine I was given to help with the birth!

This is what religion does.

Religion dulls the senses. TRUE spiritual progression and growth is stunted by killing one’s own ability to discern what’s real and what’s not.

We all have been lulled into a semi- or fully-delusional state where we are drugged into believing something we know deep down inside ‘just isn’t right.’  We just went to church and went along with the programs to get along.  We didn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak, out of fear that we would be labeled ‘rebellious,’ ‘unfaithful,’ ‘unteachable,’ or a host of other names leadership likes to place on thinking people who were blessed with common sense AND wisdom to know game when they see it.

2012: YOUR Season to TRULY Be Free!

By Pamela Sheppard

The Lord declared that the truth shall set us free.  Therefore, spiritual freedom is my overall goal of deliverance.  For until the captive is free from religiosity, he will never experience the liberty that truth brings.  Therefore, Pam Sheppard Ministries and Sheppard Counseling Center  are geared toward helping a captive to take a stand for his own well-being and ultimate survival.  For it makes no sense that  a believer in Jesus Christ  should religiously misapply scripture like  “turning the other cheek” when the attack is actually coming from a demon who is hell-bent on destroying him.  Why should he continue to sacrifice himself for those who abuse him in the church?  Why should a disciple of Jesus have an insatiable desire to manipulate and control others with religiosity, simply because he has an unhealthy striving for recognition, position and power?  Why should a saint live with a constant fear of being submerged by others, so that he is compelled to ascend himself above them, just to survive? Why should a overcomer in Christ Jesus be a mealy-mouthed, passive person, who breaks those in his immediate environment  with his legalistic restrictions and complaints? Why must a prophet think that he must speak words into the lives of the brethren like he was a psychic, just for the sake of power and manipulation?  Therefore, where deliverance is concerned, I go the extra mile for Jesus by creating liberating conditions within a captive’s soul—a spiritual blockade to  the re-infestation by the religious demon.

 

Click for ebook

     It is important to note that the creation of a flawless disciple is not within my domain.  As both a minister and  a counselor, I can only help a captive to become free by providing an opportunity for spiritual insight.  For me, perfection is to be demon free and to face truth every day.  It should be clear from every insight presented in Faces of the Religious Demon” that where religiosity is concerned, we can never exhaust spiritual warfare by a single approach.  This demon must be combated over and over again from various angles and perspectives.  It is so difficult to end this book because I see a new face everyday and I am tempted to sit down and write about it.  Every new face springs from a variety of sources and factors and thereby I have to assume new strategies.  I am committed to each and every captive that comes my way to examine his attitudes, his personality and his issues.

 

          Even though I believe that “the house is burning,”, in spite of the spiritual damage that may have occurred within an organized church, recovery in Christ is inevitable because of the words of the Lord,  No one will be able to pluck the Lord’s sheep out of His hand.  He will ALWAYS prepare a way of escape. If a way of escape cannot be found,  I personally believe that most of those who seem to have suffered irreparable damage are among those whom our Lord never knew. Among the saints, there are  also the lukewarm ones, whom the Lord shall spit out of His mouth. Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights.  God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.  The Lord Jesus said that what is covered shall be uncovered and what is hid shall be made known.  He also said that you “shall know them by their fruit.”

 

     My personal testimony stands as a beacon of light in the midst of darkness in the church.  Darkness surrounded me on all sides but the Lord saw to it that darkness did not overcome me by smothering  my light.  Furthermore, I believe that the Father of lights has an appointed time when the false religious demon  that has mixed itself with the children of light shall be exposed in each and every situation. I believe that the appointed time for exposure is at hand today.  In Isaiah 49, the Lord speaks through the prophet and says that in an acceptable time, He has heard us and in the day of salvation, He helps us.  In an acceptable time, He heard me, and in the day of my salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ helped me by empowering me to  set many captives free.

 

     In the day of exposure, the children of darkness are stumbling everywhere, causing them to reveal themselves of their own accord.  Even though the wheat and the tare will continue to grow together until the second coming of our Lord of the Harvest, this does not mean that we will not be able to discern the tares.  There are times when the tares and the wheat are almost identical in appearance.  To break it down further, those who profess to be saved and who are not will be used by demons to hinder you.  However, if you walk in the light as Jesus is the light, you will have the victory.

 

      Yes, this is the time of exposure.  Lately, people who I have believed were truly saved have themselves looked me in the face and declared “I never believed.” From the Internet to my own community and even significant people among my family and friends–people who have professed the faith for years–are now revealing from their own hearts that they are still children of darkness. As I continue to  walk in the light, darkness backs up.   How does such a thing happen? Well, invariably some do have faith in His name, but they anchor their faith in a delusion, an illusion or an obsession, and end up believing that they are saved when they are not. 

 So this is the year of exposure. In 2012, if you have been deceived and you go before God and pray  ”Father, expose the darkness,” the Lord will do it. Prepare to stand strong and steady for He will blow truth at you like  a bold wind. So if you  need help to stand  under the weight of truth, give us a call at 518-477-5759 to book a telephone appointment.

Demonic Deliverance from Christian Demons


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

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

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

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

Read this excerpt from Faces of a Religious Demon:

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

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

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

The religious spirit is NOTHING to play with!

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

We must be prepared!

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

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

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

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

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