To Be Born Again, Wait on God’s Call!

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

 I have examined my salvation at least three times according to II Corinthians 5:13, seriously examined it, because it was so supernatural. And the reason my salvation is my only personal possession is because I never accepted Jesus into my heart. I never sought Him. In fact, I did not believe that He actually was a literal human being that lived on Earth. I thought He was a myth, made up by the white man to keep my black  people enslaved with all of His meekness and turn the other cheek behavior, which was not my  personality at all. I was not afraid of hell because I did not believe in hell either. I confess that I was both proud and adamant in my position as an atheist. 

So what I received was a call.

 The problem is that religious folk have “accepted”  Jesus before they heard His call. The call is not about going into ministry. The call is when God is reaching out to you to tell you, “I saved you before I created the foundations of the earth. I knew you when you were in your mother’s womb. Oh atheist Pam, you were an atheist for 33 years, but I knew you, and I called you.” And when you get a call, you get that call on a specific day and time. Now He may have been drawing you for years, and He definitely has sent angels to stand by and protect you to keep the devil from killing you before you heard the call. my day and time was Monday, March 29, 1977 at 4 pm. 

Everybody who is born again who is saved by God hears a call. And where does that call take you? It takes you to the cross. That’s where you gotta go. You gotta go to the cross. And you may not know then the victory of the Lord’s blood, the power of His blood to ruin all the enemy’s plans that he has for you, the power of that blood to keep you. That’s the meaning of baptism, you have been baptized into His death, into His cross and raised out of that water into His resurrection. Lord have mercy. The call will also take you to His resurrection.  The Holy Spirit will give you faith to believe that a dead man got up in the body He died in, and walked out of His grave alive, never to die again. 

It’s a call! So, those who want to argue with me on this subject, who want to say “well what about my will, what about my will and my decision to choose God?” You know that doesn’t even really sound right. How can we choose God while we are yet dead in our trespasses and sins?

Let’s see what the bible says about this. What about your willpower in this? 

I asked myself this question since I  was a person with a very strong willpower. In fact, I  stood against my grandmother every Sunday. There was a church and my grandfather was the pastor. As an eight year old, I stood with my willpower as a young child and said to Grandma Greta “NO, I’m not going to that church, I’m not going to your church. I don’t believe in Jesus, I WILL not go”, and I did not go!!! 

So what happened to my willpower when I got the call? It almost seems like it disappeared. I was just caught up, snatched up in the call. You say “prove it to me, show me in the bible.” Well look at Ezekiel the 36th chapter. This is the prophetic words of God about the new birth. He doesn’t mention Jesus by name, but He does mention Him. He says, “I will sanctify My great name, I will take you from among the heathen.” And that’s what happened to Me, the one my grandmother used to call a heathen. 

I was taken from among the heathen and gathered out. He says “I will sprinkle clean water upon you.” Look at God’s emphasis. On all the “I will’s.” He says “Iwillsprinkle clean water upon you. I will give you a new heart, I will give you a new spirit, I will put a new spirit within you, I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, I will put My Spirit in you, and I will cause you to walk in My statutes and you shall keep My judgments and do them.” 

And that’s what 40 years of my  life have been about. I  got caused to be where I am now. Why? Because He said “I will put My Spirit within you, and it is My Spirit within you that will cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments and do them.” Lord have mercy. It’s the fear of the Lord, that Spirit within, that has caused ME  to be 40 years in Him. 

And then He says “I will also save you from all your uncleanness.” That’s what He does in Christ. Many have jumped out and said “I accept Jesus.” And so, since they accepted Jesus, then they have to cause themselves to keep the laws and the statutes and to obey God. It becomes a real work for them, but it’s a work without power. Why? 

They didn’t wait on the call. 

Wait on Him to call you. If you have a desire for Jesus Christ of Nazareth, then God is moving upon you. Wait for Him to call you. Don’t get duped into saying, “come into my heart.” Jesus Christ of Nazareth does not come into anybody’s heart. But the Fake Jesus does. If you need help, contact me at rescueonfb@icloud.com, because you are going to have to uninvite the Fake Jesus out of your heart, and you’re going to need some help doing that.

DO YOU KNOW JESUS?

When I was in the I.C., this song was a very popular song we played during what is known as ‘altar call.’  The ‘altar call’ in most churches, is the place sinners go to ‘get saved.’

This song is a very emotional song, and I will be the first to admit, it will ‘rile a crowd’ up.  It solicits an emotional, often teary-eyed response of the crowd that feels they are in worship to God.

But listen to the song:  NO where in the song does one hear the WHOLE gospel message…what one must do to be saved.  A key element to salvation is REPENTANCE, yet the word ‘repent’ is not sang one time in this entire song.

The ‘bishop’ Hezekiah Walker about half way through the song goes into how church is ‘big business,’ instead of telling people to repent.  Instead of telling people that Jesus Christ of Nazareth rose from the dead.  Without a clear, concise understanding and acceptance that Jesus rose again from the dead-IN THE FLESH-plus without godly repentance, salvation has not taken place.

One may have snotted and cried, writhed all under the pew.  One may have ran up and down the aisle.  One may have screamed & hollered to the top of their lungs.

But NONE of that equates salvation.

The song sings ‘Do you know Jesus?  Does He live in your heart?’

Jesus Christ of Nazareth-the ONLY Living Son of God-who died on the cross and rose again from the dead with ALL power in HIS hands….cannot live in anyone’s heart….since He is sitting on the right hand of the Father…He rose IN THE FLESH.  That means He is back in the body He was born into via Mary.

This erroneous teaching has led MANY to believe that they are saved, when they are not.  And then they are driven into more condemnation when they fall so quickly, or so easily into sin the same day they said the sinner’s prayer that guilt & condemnation oppresses them, kills their faith, and deadens their senses so that they cannot repent….preachers don’t even preach repentance anymore under the erroneous belief that doing so is legalism.

It is not to just believe on Jesus.  There are MANY jesuses out there, the most ‘powerful,’ fake one is Jesus Immanuel Sananda…the jesus that millions have unknowingly ‘received into their hearts’ at the altars of these churches.

No repentance, no understanding or even working knowledge of the resurrection of Jesus Christ…just a good feeling, a good cry, a good dance, a good shout…but NO salvation.

Do YOU know Jesus?  

The devils know him, too, and TREMBLE!

Is the Institutional Church the Endtime Harlot?

PROTESTANT ERRORS

(An Excerpt from the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us)

 PROTESTANTISM          

Protestants have contended that only the Catholic Church is a part of the Harlot because of the deification of Mary, the priesthood and the worship of saints. They believe that these practices hinder the salvation of Catholics.  Yet, what of Protestantism?    Are souls being saved among the denominations and the non-denominations of the Protestant faith today?  I am finding that even the best churches are hazardous, primarily because subtle deception is actually held in place by the sincerity and the commitment of its leadership. To be sincerely wrong can be almost as deadly as being obviously deceived or purposefully deceptive.

From my own vantage point from a deliverance perspective,I have been put in contact with several    demonized Catholics AND Protestants around the country and even the world. As such, there is one major sign that suggests that the church age may be coming to a close.  I am willing to bet that some of you are guessing that the most outstanding sign of the demise of the Protestant church is either dying churches, sinning preachers, the prosperity gospel or even false prophets. These are certainly signs that “Satan has a seat”. But   the most outstanding sign  that Satan may be standing behind the pulpits is one of his cosmic beings,  Jesus Sananda Immanuel.

Consider this. The main reason why the church was commissioned in the first place was to preach a gospel that the Holy Spirit could use to draw the elect to the cross of  Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Yet for 200 years or more, the gospel has been tainted with an insidious error that no one seems to be able to correct and most ministers are totally unaware of it. In a nutshell, the main error is that the people are being taught worldwide   that “God will save them once they make   a decision to choose Jesus Christ of Nazareth.—ie.that the ability to be saved lies in man’s hands.” e-book www.lulu.com/content/12044954 soft cover www.lulu.com/content/8761420

Such a teaching borders on blasphemy because if man is saved by “accepting Jesus,” then the decision is a work of man and not a gift from Godaccording to grace, “lest any man should boast  and declare “I am saved because I ACCEPTED JESUS! Whether denominational or non-denominational, pentecostal or Charismatic, practically the entire Protestant church upholds the “free will” decision approach to salvation.

Do you yourself believe that you can or could be saved any time that YOU wanted to? Do you believe that you are NOW saved simply because you responded to an altar call and/ or you repeated a sinner’s prayer where you “asked Jesus to come into your heart?” If you can answer in the affirmative, then you have been deceived and therein, defiled! You are in jeopardy on judgment day when the Lord looks at you and declares,”I NEVER KNEW YOU!!”

             Alarmingly,what is being preached in practically ALL of the Protestant churches is that through a personal decision–the volition and choice of human will—the lost  can ACCEPT Christ to be saved. This is a tenet that has so strongly grieved the Holy Ghost, that it is reasonable to wonder if He has left Protestantism entirely. Started by a preacher called Charles Finney about 200 years ago, this foundational error has pervasively spread like yeast throughout every corner of the Protestant church. Even the most renowned evangelist of our time, Billy Graham has also preached the ” make a decision”doctrine of salvation to millions upon millions.

Moreover, the church practices of the invitation to Christian discipleship through an altar call and the repeating of “the sinner’s prayer” are the main   anchors that hold the foundation of the “free will method” in place in its attempt to convince the lost that they must be saved by “choosing Christ” before it is too late. Some will even preach the doctrine of hell as a scare tactic to browbeat a “decision for Christ.” The essential root of the problem is that when a person sits in church, in a huge stadium, watches a TV evangelist, or even “is led to Christ” by another professing Christian, the lost are being taught that they can ACCEPTJesus into their own hearts and salvation is automatically theirs for the asking.

Interestingly enough, no where in the word of God is it written that “we accept Christ into our hearts.” Paul wrote to the Romans that we”believe in our hearts that Christ was raised from the dead.” However, Paul did not write that we must “accept Jesus into our hearts.”When we are born again, Jesus does not “enter our hearts.” How can He enter our hearts when He is at the right hand of the Father??? This is why the Lord told His disciples that it was better for them that He went away so that the Holy Ghost would come. The Holy Ghost is that part of the godhead who enters our spirits, causing us to become “temples of God.” The heart and the spirit are two distinctively different entities in man. Similarly, like the words “rapture” and “purgatory”,the phrase “accept Jesus”is yet another religious euphemism, not backed up by scripture.

Furthermore, the message of “I accepted Christ” is so preposterous that it is an offense to the triune Godhead. We DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST. NO ONE CAN BE SAVED UNLESS GOD HIMSELF HAS ALREADY MADE THE CHOICE!!!! The Father and the Son have already done the choosing or the electing before the beginning of recorded time. When the sinner actually hears the call, he simply responds. Even when a sinner cries out for Jesus, it may appear to be an act of his own free will, yet the Lord said that no man can come to Him unless the Father which sent Him draws them. (John 6:44)

Subsequently, even when a sinner begs the Lord for mercy to save him, he does so because he has been drawn to the cross by the Holy Ghost. Therefore, even our repentance is not human but godly. Godly sorrow is a repentance for sin that has been divinely given to the sinner to cause him to repent, to sorrow over the Lord’s sacrifice.At the cross, a sinner’s spirit is washed, cleansed and forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

It is important to state here that nothing stops God, not even the church.When the Lord is ready for the elect, He calls them. If they are sitting on a church pew, He can still reach them, regardless of what they have been listening to. The problem is that many of the elect who are in church believe that they are already saved but they are not. The Father plans to save them. Nevertheless, for the Holy Ghost to draw them to a genuine salvation experience, the strong man must be bound with the light of truth. In this instance, the “strong man” is the religious demon, aka,the Fake Jesus. Jesus Sananda Immanuel.

THE FAKE JESUS HAS A CONVINCING VOICE!

I have spent 3 decades learning how to discern good from evil where it comes to supernatural experiences like “hearing voices.”

Pam Sheppard: Author, Publisher, Deliverance Counselor, Trainer of Ministers

The bottom line is that “it ain’t easy.”  Some would take a scripture out of its original context and retort, “Well the Lord said, my sheep hear my voice and the voice of a stranger, they will not follow.”  However, if we look back at who Jesus was talking to and why, we will come to understand that Jesus was talking to the children of Israel, the religious people of THAT day, who lived at the time of the Lord’s earthly ministry in His physical body.  The Jews had all of the signs from the prophets.  The Lord was saying to THEM, those who really belong to the Father will recognize that I am their long-awaited Messiah.  Then the Lord makes a brief reference to us in John 10:16.  We are the “other sheep of a different fold.”  In regards to US, He says that when He calls us to Himself to be saved, we will know Him as well.  Why?  Because we were called by God before the worlds were even framed.

The Apostle John actually tells us in verse 6 that the Lord used these words as a parable and that the people who heard him did not understand what the Lord was talking about in that day.  Nothing has changed today either.  We use the scripture but we have no idea what the Lord was talking about.  We have taken this verse to be a spiritual discernment verse when actually, it is not.  In fact, the fake Jesus in our time has an extremely convincing voice that untold millions, perhaps billions  have followed into a false conversion which I call a counterfeit birth.

This is how it is done.  Some have heard a voice say things to them like, “Come to me.  You will find joy, peace and happiness.”  Nothing about repentance, the sin, the cross or the Lord’s bodily resurrection is mentioned and so they “follow that voice,” claim themselves to be saved but they bear no fruit.  In some cases, false converts are instantly healed of an addiction or a physical infirmity and they assume that their healing could only be the Lord, so they continue to follow the voice of the fake Jesus. These kinds of false conversions are the most dangerous because its victims do not have a clue that they are not born again.  Then there are those who asked Jesus to come into their hearts.  Since the Son of God is seated at the right hand of His Father, He cannot come into our hearts.  In fact, the heart is a part of the soul.  God is a spirit.  The Holy Ghost is Spirit.  He comes into the spirits of a truly born again convert—not into the heart.

So when such an invitation is made either through a sinner’s prayer either at the altar call, the invitation of Christian discipleship, and the sinner says “Jesus, come into my heart.  I accept You,”  the one who accepts the invitation is the fake Jesus. And in that way, some of God’s people have followed “the voice of a stranger.”

If you are one of them, help is available.  Call 518-477-5759.

THE FAKE JESUS: To Review, Click the cover.

I would be as ignorant of this phenomenal deception of the enemy as every other minister, if it were not for the fact that I have been doing telephone counseling with people from around the globe since December 2002.  Since then, I have been in touch with hundreds of people.  Of all of them, I only know of one  was saved when she contacted me.  She is now  one of my ministers, Kellie LeClerc.  Everyone else was a false conversion. When I look back to my first case, I remember  a young woman who I will call “Linda.”  Linda  had several demons.  She is the first to travel to my state for deliverance and her counseling was conducted entirely by email. When I spoke to her demons, there was no manifestation.  However, when she went back to her hotel room, the demons manifested.  I thought she was delivered.  Perhaps.  However, today I am convinced that she was one who was never saved in the first place, even though she was a tither and a tongue talker.  I would not be surprised if she STILL is not saved.  You see, I knew nothing of the fake Jesus at that time, and because Linda spoke in tongues, I assumed she was saved.  You know them by their fruit.  There was no love for the brethren in her.  It was quite simple, but since I myself was deceived at the time, my spiritual discernment was not nearly as sharp as it is today.

"WAKE UP AND SMELL THE LORD'S ENDTIME COFFEE!"

It is time to get ready!

Only God knows how many frustrated mega-preacher wannabees there are out there.  Oh, I know your heart real well.  I used to be just like YOU!  You may have been lusting after  the prosperity, power and prestige of the megas.  The demon assigned to me tried to convince me that I was to be rich and famous but I woke up and smelled the Lord’s end time coffee. Perhaps Satan has deceived you into believing  that you are the next up and coming TD Jakes, Juanita Bynum, or perhaps you are the next Billy Graham or Joyce Meyer.  The religious devil assigned to you will whisper in your ear and lie  to you in your dreams and visions.   He follows you 24/7 and he has taken book on you so he   knows if you have been  weak to  self glory, pride and ambition.

The truth of the matter is that megadom has really “seen its day.”  God has no need for anymore mega preachers.  In fact, don’t be surprised to discover that  it was not the anointing of God that  made the mega’s famous. Nor was it their faith. As quiet as it has been kept, there are megas who  have even been secretly  “bankrolled” by the rich and the powerful within the Illuminati. 

Here’s yet another little secret.   Conversion is a fallacy.  In Christ, no human being  converts anyone.  Conversion is the job of the Holy Ghost.  All we do is “tell the story” and the Holy Ghost uses what we preach to convert.  I don’t think there is anywhere in the world where the name of Jesus Christ is unknown.  I believe that we are very close to the end, perhaps even the Lord’s soon return. He may come while I am yet alive.
While I am here and even after I am dead and  gone, my job is to draw the elect out of deception.   “Come Out of Her, God’s People”  is a book that will do that in a big way.   Since no traditional pastor will ever give me exposure to his congregation, I have to find God’s people in “other ways”.  I   “assemble on line” in private facebook groups  which  in no way is  anything like “church as usual.” If you would like to know more, send me a fb message.
My job is to train a cadre of ministers  with the skills and knowledge base that the Lord has given me. Then I assign  those who have come out of the church to the ministers. So each trained minister has a sheepfold .  Some of the ministers have been delivered, then trained.  They  came together online to be trained so that others can be trained, and so on.  No mega.  Just each one teach as many as we can.
 Do you have to be clergy???  Absolutely not!!!! I have been licensed, ordained clergy for 30 years.  I took the documents off of my wall and threw them in the garbage.  If God is not in it, ordination papers are not worth the paper that they are printed on.  You see,  there are countless  demonized clergy  because what they are doing in their pulpits is not only NOT in the will of God, but they are actually serving demons who have literally taken over their pulpitsIn order to be fully delivered, they have to give up their pulpits. That is why after 13 years, I closed the congregation that I myself started in 1996.  It too was filled with demons because it was still a part of the Babylonian structure. Even though I was a loyal and sincere pastor, the word I preached fell on wayside, thorny, stony ground.  People were “playin church.”
I have to work while it is day because there will come a time when there will be no Internet and those that I  have trained online will be on their own. Right now, I have trained affiliate and associate ministers that I will assign to mentor  you.  To know more, call 518-477-5759.

Satan's Agenda for a Little Girl Part II

Pam cast a demon of depression from me and I haven't been depressed since that day, two years ago.

Shortly after I aborted my first child, I left the boyfriend who had gotten me pregnant. I was so desperate to be loved, driven to be loved. It would lead me into a string of promiscuous relationships opening myself deeper to the depression demon. After my sister’s death, I rallied against these demonic entities, wanting to be free. I always had a yearning to be free from the sadness and the loneliness. I had let go of the thoughts of any religion at that point and decided to do things on my own. Shortly after, I had met someone who would eventually become my husband. He was a classic narcissist, but in a way, I wanted someone who was so involved with themselves that they couldn’t see how dirty and used I was. I was fully bulimic at the time, trying to keep my weight down so I would be attractive to my soon to be husband.

 I believe now, that it was those lustful spirits in me that attracted men with the same spirits. I ended up becoming pregnant again and aborted it even though it was with the man I was going to marry.  I was lonely and knew that there was really no love, I never felt loved but I married him anyway. I remember waking up on my wedding day and saying to myself “What have I done?” One of Satan’s big lies is, you better get married right now because there may not be anyone else who want’s you. So you settle for less than what God has for you. Not knowing it then, but God was going to save me, He knew my heart and He gave me two children as a blessing. Depression however was always with me. When, 8 years after our marriage I hit the wall. My husband was terrible to me, angry and mean. My children were out of control…I went outside and cried out with all my heart to the Lord…”SAVE ME! I cannot be saved unless you save me, I’m sorry for not listening to you!”

He did save me, the problem was, I had always been led by emotions and emotional experiences…so for all of those years I was led by the fake jesus and his demons, they were still working but now, they could use my salvation . This was the jesus who would fight with me to go from a Lutheran church, to a Charismatic  Non Denominational church. It would make me cry every week in the shower. I bought into the lie, hook, line and sinker. Because of the false doctrine, and the emotional aspect, I went deeper into depression and the deeper I went into depression, the deeper I went into the church.

 It was cyclical, looking for my answers there as if God was a “candy machine.” This is how they teach, ” just ask God,  just tithe, just do what God want’s you to do, be faithful, go to more events, pray more, get on your knees more, dance more, get involved more  etc etc etc.” It just put me into more and more bondage. At one point, driving home in my car after church, all I could think was, “it’s never going to happen, I am always going to be sick and depressed!” I wanted to believe there was a way, but I knew what I was doing wasn’t working. Only God could have opened my eyes to what was going on, I couldn’t have brought myself to see it. I remember a time in worship I was worshiping in full extension, arms over my head, lost, and I felt the Holy Spirit saying to me, “they worship me with their mouths, but their hearts are far away from me.”

 Immediately my hands went down. It was from then on God began to reveal truths to me. Eventually, God brought me out and led me to Pam and to my freedom. Satan couldn’t stop what God had intended for me because He always knew my heart….there is hope for you too.

If you suffer from demonic affliction, depression, abortions,   a bad marriage,  phony religion, you should  call Sheppard’s Counseling Center today. Even if you just need to talk, the phone lines are open right now. Her team of supervised deliverance ministers, are waiting to serve you. Your deliverance, and full freedom in Christ is Pam’s number one concern. The fact that she has 38 years of experience as a licensed therapist  under her belt, should beckon you to the phone to make the call. Call Now! (518)477-5759.

WHY I LOVE THE APOSTLE PAUL

Sherry Shriner is quite popular on the web.  In fact, she was a big help to me while I was conducting my research for the book

Pam Sheppard, 30 years a minister for the Lord Jesus.

“The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”  I found her knowledge of the ascended masters to be quite helpful.  However, her writings on the Apostle Paul are blasphemous, considering that Paul wrote 1/3 of the New Testament.  I won’t go into Sherry’s contentions about this phenomenal apostle because I refuse to spread her point of view.  Instead, as a former atheist who had never been to church and no one had ever witnessed to me, Paul has been crucial to my spiritual understanding of what happened to me that strange but marvelous day when I became born again. For when I had my own Damascus Road experience with the Lord Jesus Christ, I knew of no one else who had ever had one.

Even though I got born again before I ever heard of the Apostle PAUL, I would not have understood why on March 29, 1977, I felt “so different.”  The newness.  The cleanness. The past seemed so far away.  No shame or guilt for ANYTHING and I had been quite the sinner in my first 33 years of life.  Why on this strange day in March did I feel like “I had JUST been born?”  A few minutes after I was “born again,” I opened my brand new bible and it turned to John 3, the words of the Lord, “you must be born again, that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit.”  After I read this, then the Holy Spirit spoke and said “Pam, you have just given birth to your new spirit in Christ Jesus.  Go run a bathtub full of water, and baptize yourself in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost!”

Wow!  Yahoo!  I never felt so great in my life!!! 

No, Paul did NOT cause me to be saved.  No one did but God Himself.

I did not go to church for two years.  All I had was the Apostle Paul and the 4 gospels.  As a babe in Christ, home alone in my apartment, Paul caused me to understand my faith by confirming to me how and why God saved me.  Too many people read Paul’s letters in order to be saved.  In other words, they desire to be saved to escape hell,  and so they mechanically DO what Paul wrote about.  They think that if I SAY a confession, I  will be saved and I will go to heaven  because Paul wrote, “Confess the Lord with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus was raised from dead, you are saved. That settles it.  I accept Jesus.  I choose to be saved.  I seal it with saying the sinner’s prayer.  I’ll stamp it by going forward to the altar at the invitation.   

You see, when I read Paul’s words, I said “Ah, that is what happened to me.”  I did not repeat  or confess words.  When the Holy Ghost saved me, I felt like a coin was dropped into me, like I was  a soda machine. But  Lo and behold, what came out of the machine was not soda, but faith in the resurrection of a dead man that I not only did not believe in, but I claimed that Jesus Christ never even existed, but that He was merely a white man’s myth!!!!”  I said nothing from my mouth but “Jesus.” “I am crying for what we did to Jesus!” That was it.  I said nothing about the resurrection.  I just knew that I knew that I knew that Jesus was dead, got up in His body and walked out of His own tomb, three days later.  My belief on the resurrection was the rock or stone that dropped into me and never left in 34 years, not one time! No doubt Jesus is alive in His body not one time in 34 years!!!!

So when Paul wrote  that we are saved by grace through faith, I understood the first time I read it because it had happened to me two years before reading Paul’s words to the Ephesians.  I knew beyond a  shadow of a doubt that my salvation was a gift from God because I never even sought the gift. On top of that, I was the last person that anyone who knew me would have believed what happened to me. So I could nod my head in agreement with Paul because I knew that my salvation had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ME.

However, what Paul taught me that I did not already know as a babe in Christ,  is that the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the son of God.  Without Paul, I would not have known or even understood that I can’t please God with my flesh.  Paul has been for me one of the best biblical examples of a spiritually fruitful child of God.  Once filled with pride over his scholarly achievements, his heritage and his cultural and religious attainments, Paul taught me how to die and yet live at the same time.  He taught me how to stand against the enemy, how to press on to victory, how to walk in the spirit and not fulfill my lust of my flesh. He taught me how to press on to the mark of my high calling in the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

No, Paul did not cause me to be saved.  What he did was train up a babe in Christ to become a minister.  Once I entered ministry, I had a number of elders and a few bishops that I was mandated to submit to.  However, none of them taught me a thing about what it take to be a minister.  It was Paul who did that.   I thank Paul for that. 

 In fact, I love Paul the Apostle.

THE MINISTRY: A CAREER OR A CALLING?

Too Little, Too Late.

There are those who are feverishly trying to save the institutional house called “church,” through evangelistic programs and revivals, church reformation attempts, mass media marketing campaigns, and ecumenical collaborations and  compromises.

 These are those who believe that emphasis should be placed on saving the institution of  the organized church.  However, I believe the Lord’s declaration of the prevailing power of the church was not referring to her  as an institution, but as a spiritual body of believers who, by not denying His name and keeping the faith, would remain His.  The question is not whether or not the burning house SHOULD be saved.

 No, the question goes a lot deeper.  The question is “CAN the burning house be saved?”  Quite frankly, sin and deception have permeated the house so deeply, that only a profound, deep move of repentance and contrition can save the organized church.  As Jesus declared to the 7 churches in the book of Revelation, “Remember therefore, from whence thou art fallen, and REPENT, and do the first works, or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick from its place, except  thou REPENT.” (Revelation 2:5)  Since He clearly states that the candlestick is a metaphor for the church, it is apparent that Jesus Himself will bring down the organized  church system,  the entire thing known today as “church.” However, the most important question to ask today is “has the opportunity for the church to repent expired?”

Well, I believe it has.  For three reasons.

First of all,  too many preachers, even the sincere ones, have made ministry a career rather than a calling. They can’t repent because their pocketbooks are tied to church donations. Unlike TD Jakes, Juanita Bynum, Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen, they did not make themselves independently wealthy from the donations of churchfolk who gave them their start in the first place, a foundation they usurped and became  best selling authors. The livelihood of most full time pastors is dependent upon continuing to do whatever they can to pay their bills and provide  food on their tables and care for their families with something left for retirement. Most pastors  can’t come out of the church simply because  they would experience financial ruin in a failing economy.

Secondly,  repentance would necessitate a fundamental change  in how the gospel is preached.  Preachers are proud folk.  They would rather confess  to some kind of sin of the flesh before admitting that preaching a decisional, come to the altar and accept Jesus, repeat a sinner’s prayer gospel has caused people to invite the fake Jesus into their hearts.

Thirdly, I suspect pulpits have already been taken over by religious demons and devils. The grip of these unseen forces has occurred because God Himself has sent forth a spirit of strong delusion, causing churchfolk to believe a lie. Preachers, even good, sincere, righteous men and women are already under the power of seducing spirits whose doctrines they continue to preach.

So it is time to come out.  If I am wrong, you can go back.  I suggest that you simply ask the Lord in prayer, “Say Lord, is this woman, Pam Sheppard correct?  Are the days of the organized church “done?” Is it a dangerous place?  Should I leave? 

I  can tell you that if you ask Him sincerely and you are willing to obey His answer to you, then I can tell you right now that He is going to show you Himself, that you need to come out for your own safety.

Religious Demon? How to Recognize a Religious Demon

Minister Marlene

Religious demon is not a new fangled term. Well known Christian authors like Derek Prince and Rick Joyner have used this term initially. But Pam Sheppard has taken their teachings to a higher more advanced level. She has done extensive research, and exposes exactly who, and what a religious demon is. In her ground breaking book, ” Faces of the Religious Demon” she ushers us into a full scale describtion of the scope and funtion of religious demons in the organized church.

Unfortunately, the church as a whole, shuns the fact that demons exist and operate today. This is grave errror! In fact, as Pam relates, religious demons have entered into the church. Well meaning deliverance ministers, are limited in knowledge. At best they may be able to cast out demons, but are too often unskilled at accomplishing total deliverance for captives. Demons often return to victims with a vengeance. The word of God refers to this, for we know that when a house is swept clean, demons can, and will find another door of entry.
Pam Sheppard: Author of ” Faces of the Religious Demon “

I now offer you an excerpt from Pam’s groundbreaking text, ” Faces of the Religious Demon “…

Pam Sheppard writes:
 
The first time I personally heard the term ” religious spirit ” or ” religious demon ” was in a prophecy I received in 1983. In this word, I was given a spiritual warfare assigment against 7 high ranking fallen angels that I began to refer to as ” The Seven Walls”, with the religious devil  as wall number 5 in the list: alchohol and drugs, homosexuality, prostitution, witchcraft, the religious spirit, prejudice and poverty. To walk in darkness is to give the religious demon an unholy advantage where he will enter into both spiritual and man made temples, and through a blasphemous masquerade, attempt to exalt himself above God. When the demon is able to enter into a Christian temple of either flesh or brick and subsequently obtain worship for itself through fraudulence and deceit, this is truly an abomination of desolation (Daniel 11:36).
 
My dear readers you ought to get a copy of Pam’s book. I can attest to what Pam is describing. Why? Because I have read the whole book , and can now understand much of what she expounds on regarding the religious demon. A religious demon will display some of the following traits:
 
A. Unknown tongues with no translation
B. Religiosity and odd extremes
C. Slain in the spirit which is unscriptural
D. Divination under the guise of prophecy
E. Repetiton of the abominable sinners prayers. i.e ” I accept Jesus ” or ” Jesus come into my heart “
As you can see, a religious demon is an abominable desolation indeed, and displays a carnal, fleshly worship that has nothing to do with God or Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
