Slain in the Spirit, Part 2

In ‘Slain in the Spirit, Part 1,’ I went into detail of what happens when one is slain in the spirit and how it lines up-or does not line up-with the scripture.

We talked about how one is actually in a ‘trance’ when slain in the Spirit and can open themselves to the demonic.  

The following is an article written by Pam Sheppard that further explains WHY the ENEMY is wanting more and more people to take part of this ‘slain in the spirit’ phenomena.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THE ALTERED STATE IS A HYPNOTIC TRANCE

Among my faithful Facebook friends is a cadre of serious believers who continually share YouTube video clips, blogtalkradio programs, and various articles that dramatically portray how the enemy has infiltrated the Christian community with a variety of occult, even blasphemous doctrines and practices.  To name but a few, the list is long: the Joel’s Army movement is at the top of the list because it encompasses It ALL!!

Then there is  yoga, the kundalini spirit, TM, people running around the church  looking like they are literally on fire, alien encounters, astral travel, slain in the spirit, the laughter and dancing movements, (I refuse to call them ‘holy’), tongue prayer languages,—the list seems almost endless. In fact, even  charismatic sermonizing has caused people to become hysterical, breaking loose in church aisles, appearing to have lost their minds.

Yet, there are even stranger things going  on that are a lot less public.  As an example, in my Christian telephone counseling practice of 10 years, I have come in contact with Christians from around the world  who are constantly “hearing voices” yet they are not mentally ill.  In 10 years, I have been in contact with lots of churchgoers.  Among them are people who thought that they were saved, but after careful consideration, they ultimately admitted that they were not—yet—they  had spoken  in tongues and had often submitted themselves to falling slain in the spirit in various charismatic churches.

Ministers laid  hands on  many of them to receive what is colloquially known as “an impartation.” When they began to be tormented in one way or the other, most of them sought help from deliverance ministries, yet their condition worsened.  In fact, 75% of  my Christian client contacts  were hearing voices when they telephoned me for help—all of them were active and faithful church members. Some of them I could help, some of them, I could not, for one reason or another.

One thing that all of these strange happenings have in common is the altered state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.”  With that ONE common denominator, I decided to “investigate” by examining a plethora of occult websites, to see what devils and demons  were openly revealing to their faithful followers.  In other words, “I spied out the land.”  I figured that even though Satan and his troops lie to their followers, they might reveal something to them  that they persevere to hide from true followers of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  Believe me, it was a disgusting and dangerous assignment , so I do not recommend others do what I did.  The blasphemy against the Lord is horrendous and those who are weak in faith might be victimized, even indoctrinated.

As a result of a year’s work, I believe that I have uncovered Satan’s overall agenda which ties into why the altered state of consciousness—the trance– plays such  a pivotal role in bringing about what the Anti-Christ intends  to do.  I have written about this subject in 4 of my 6 books:  Faces of the Religious Demon, the Fake Jesus, Come Out of Her God’s People, and the New Idolatry.  However, if you are not into Christian non-fiction, then here it is in a nutshell:
The devils and demons have told their followers that “the World Master” plans to introduce himself to all mankind through what appears to be telepathic communication.  Therefore, these spirit entities have been feverishly working in our times to cause people to be able to enter into a trance–an ASC—so that the voice of the Anti-Christ can be heard.

With occult followers, it is an easy thing to do because they willingly put themselves into trances by meditation, yoga, chanting, channeling, astral travel, drugs, etc. With the people in the world, they enter into trances through sex, drugs, movies, etc.   So the enemy had to devise ways to open doorways in Christians so that “we too will be able to hear the voice of the Anti-Christ.”  Satan is seeking for mankind to lose themselves in an altered state of consciousness so as to provide an open doorway for demons to “walk in” when the time is right.

What I learned on the occult websites is that the Anti-Christ is going to attempt to  pull a global stunt  where EVERYONE hears the voice of a stranger, saying the exact same thing at the exact same time.  In this way, the son of perdition intends to prove “that he is God” because he will appear to be both omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent–manifesting the qualities of God Almighty.  However, the only ones who will be able to hear his voice, will be those who have been opened to “the trance.”

I was once, one of those people.  In the 70’s, I was a psychic medium.  An opened door to it ALL OF IT.  Once I got saved on March 29,1977, all occult doorways were shut down.  However, in 1982,  I reopened them by heeding to the doctrines and the practices of the charismatic movement.  For 25 years, I heard from religious demons, mostly in dreams and sometimes audibly, believing that I was hearing from the Holy Ghost.  When the Lord opened my blind eyes to the truth, I shut down ALL of it: tongues, slain in the spirit, the laughter, the travail in the spirit—I MEAN ALL OF IT.   I put up a spiritual blockade over my mind at night,  that protects me from remembering what demons try to tell me in dreams.  When God speaks to me now, I don’t feel ANYTHING. I simply “know things.”  After a day or so I realize, “Oh, the Holy Ghost was here.  Imagine that!”
Why fallen angels and evil spirits need the  altered state and Satan’s endtime agenda is laid out in  the book, “Come Out of Her, God’s People,”

Here is a brief excerpt:

Fallen angels stand by, patiently watching and waiting for their churchgoing prey to allow themselves to be induced into an altered state of consciousness by “any means necessary.” One they spot an opening, the religious angels seize the opportunity.  The most classic example is that of Alice Bailey, the infamous founder of present day occultism.  A churchgoing woman, Bailey is actually the founder of what is known today as “the occult.”  Most startling is that Alice Bailey began as a Sunday School Teacher in a Presbyterian church (see how this former Sunday School teacher helped to promote the introduction to the New World Order).

Slain in the Spirit, Part 1

Slain:  people who have been slain, dead, killed.

We all have heard the phrase ‘slain in the spirit.’  A preacher lays hands on someone-or sometimes not-and then the people fall to the ground, out in somewhat of a ‘trance,’ supposedly by way of the Holy Ghost.

While ‘slain in the spirit,’ it is said that the people in a trance are hearing from God…that God is delivering that person from afflictions or bondages of all kinds.  So this practice has been accepted, along with all its various forms.

The word ‘trance’ is not used often in the Bible, a total of 5 times.  The last time is in the Book of Acts 22:17, when God instructed the Apostle Paul to leave Jerusalem.

The Greek word for trance used here is ‘ekstasis,’ which means ‘a throwing of the mind out of its normal state, alienation of mind, whether such as makes a lunatic or that of a man who by some sudden emotion is transported as it were out of himself, so that in this rapt condition, although he is awake, his mind is drawn off from all surrounding objects and wholly fixed on things divine that he sees nothing but the forms and images lying within, and thinks that he perceives with his bodily eyes and ears realities shown him by God;  amazement, the state of one who, either owing to the importance or the novelty of an event, is thrown into a state of blended fear and wonderment.’

The word ‘ekstasis’ is where we get the word ‘Ecstasy’ today.

As we all know, the drug Ecstasy. Ecstasy is a drug that elevates the mood.  It is used at parties called ‘raves’ where kids take it so that they can party for up to two to three days.  Users of the drug say that it produces profoundly positive feelings, empathy for others, elimination of anxiety, and extreme relaxation.

Or in other words, they are placed in a trance, that is self-induced.

In the Christian world, these trance-like states are said to be moments of prayer and meditation, probably based upon the cases in the Bible where people were in trances.  People have reported receiving messages and special revelations ‘from God’ while under these ‘self-induced’ trances.  But I would like to point out that in every case where Balaam, Paul, and Peter were in a trance, the Bible says they were either praying and/or fell into a trance.

The instances in the Word where they were in a trance, in the Old Testament, the Word says that Balaam ‘fell’ into a trance.  In the instances of Peter and Paul, the Word says they were in prayer before being in a trance.

In both instances, in the Old and New Testament, the trances were brought on by the WILL OF GOD.  They were NOT self-induced trances brought on by the will of man.

It is safe to say that the ‘slain in the spirit’ movement is a movement self-induced by the hands and will of man.

They are man’s yet another attempt to get close to and in communion with God, instead of trusting and relying upon THE HOLY GHOST to give the unction and initiate it.

Whenever we step into the realm of trying to ‘make something happen’-even if it’s get in communion with God, or to hear from God-we fall into the arena of error and deception that the enemy can EASILY imitate.

The instances of being in a trance (in the Bible) that were induced by the hand of God are OF GOD.

The instances of being in a trance (in the modern day churches today) where someone in ‘slain in the spirit’ are-for the most part-NOT OF GOD.

How can I say that?

Because anything that is not initiated in the genuine SPIRIT OF GOD BY THE WILL OF GOD is of the devil.

People who are ‘slain in the spirit’ are always done so by the motion of someone’s hands or by the direct laying on of hands.  Nowhere in the Bible do we ever see an account where someone is ‘slain in the spirit.’

And when you have people open up themselves to the things that are (seemingly) of the spirit that is induced by the hands of men, those people are opening up themselves to the demonic realm.

Tell me:  why would someone knowingly open up themselves to something ungodly and demonic-yet they say they are ‘seeking after God’ or ‘wanting to hear a word from God?’

Most of the time, most people who allow themselves to be ‘slain in the spirit’ do so ignorantly, not knowing what they are allowing into their spirits.  I can tell you…having been saved over 20 years-and actively in ministry for over 5-I have seen plenty of cases where some were slain in the spirit.  I MYSELF have been ‘slain in the spirit.’  And in just about every case, either myself or the others who I knew who had hands laid on them and they were ‘slain in the spirit’ got up off the floor WORSE OFF then what they were before!

If you want to know the benefits of something (in the Spirit), you have to take time to examine the FRUIT OF IT.  And fruit does not just automatically pop up out of the ground or on the tree.  Even Jesus gave the fig tree ample time to bear fruit (the average life expectancy of the fig tree is hundreds of years) in Matthew 21 before He decreed it to wither up and die due to fruitlessness.  So it takes time to wait, watch and see if the fruit of various things that we have allowed in the Body of Christ will be good or bad.

If no fruit is yielded-or bad fruit is borne out of it-then clearly that means it was NOT OF GOD.

And whatever is not of God eventually leads to death.  So it is with being ‘slain in the Spirit.’

In Pam Sheppard’s book,   “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” Pam mentions that there is a specific agenda of the enemy to get masses of people in trances, as well as goes into detail as to why that is so.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this series of ‘Slain in the Spirit, Part 2.’

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.

Beware of False Prophets

False prophets come in several varieties.  They are not all in or associated with the church or with Christianity, per se.

As an example, celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Shirley McClain, Dr. Oz and other  occultists and professing Christians alike are among the false prophets. These are people of influence  who not only entertain but who also  teach spiritual things are among the false prophets as well. Then there are many who are non-Christian religious leaders who pervert the gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth..  So a simple definition of a false prophet is anyone who adds to or detracts from the gospel.–from a celebrity to a man on a soap box somewhere.  The “celebrity” simply adds to the power to reach large audiences but a person who has a small congregation is not exempt from the list.

In the Christian community, the spirit of the Anti-Christ  continues to armor itself as it seeks out pastors and church leaders who are amenable to deception as well as sheep who are prone to vulnerability. Under diverse circumstances, the religious demon sets the stage to preach  into a defiled heart by those who will teach a defiled word from any pulpit into spirits that have already been damaged. As such, religious devils and demons  build a demonic fortress within the organized church. Yet keep in mind that  there are false prophets who are not “Christian.” The first group of false prophets presented in this article are New Agers, freemasons and occultists.

THE ILLUMINATI: When things have gone wrong in your life, when you seem damned if you do and damned if you don’t, when you look around to blame SOMEBODY, we have all pointed our finger at the invisible man. We accuse ” THE MAN.” The MAN may even have a title like Uncle Sam, or the Boys in Washington,City Hall, or even that low life, “Mr. Charlie.” Well “the man” has yet another name. The Illuminati. An accurate description of the Illuminati is difficult because it is a secret, ancestral, occult society, comprised of the filthy rich and often the highly educated.

If you described the Mafia and threw in the flavor of Aryan Germany Nazis, and added the 32 degree freemasons into the equation, you would have a decent description of the Illuminati. The Illuminati’s historic roots can be traced back to the Knights Templar, to the Greek and Gnostic initiatory cults,to Egypt and even to Atlantis. Rather than distracting myself from the main issues at hand, I reviewed the writings and testimonies of some former Illuminati’s like John Todd and others who keep their real identity anonymous.

Simply put, the influence of the Illuminati is staggering, crossing several systems: banking, the media,politics and the legal profession, education, labor,energy to name a few.. They also rival the Mafia in their criminal connections. As an endtime player, their influence in religion is a thing to keep a serious eye on. The importance of the Illuminati as an endtime ”religious” player is a sinister Catholic connection as alluded to in the movie, Godfather III. The plan is to merge religion into the apostate one world church that will serve Lucifer. The informers warn that the Illuminati has infiltrated world governments,toward the end of bringing in a new leader who will usher in a Luciferean reign of joy, prosperity and rewards for the faithful. The dangerous element to this group is that like Hitler and his evil regime, they see themselves as a superior race who in their minds is not evil. The Mafia know who they are and we know who they are.

However, the Illuminati consists of billionaire aristocrats who will hire “whoever” for “whatever” to control the masses. Strangely, they are convinced that their secret efforts to dominate and control the masses is for the greater good of humanity. Actually, they see themselves as “the good guys” who weed out the weak and the unfit as they develop among themselves a superior human being. The Illuminati will put its support behind the BEAST.

BENJAMIN CREME: This white-haired sweet, unassuming little man has been the messenger of a high-ranking fallen angel whom I believe fits the biblical description of the antiChrist better than any human being on earth. Since July 1977,Creme first contacted a demon he calls an ascended master. I got into the kingdom just under the wire, —4 months BEFORE the demon Maitreya made his first appearance to Benjamin Creme. For 3 decades, Creme, referred to as the John the Baptist of the anti-Christ, has been traveling the globe, telling audiences that the second coming of Christ will not be in the clouds, but that the Christ has been here for 30 years, hiding out in the Himalayas.

A British author, artist, and occult practitioner, Creme has progressively obtained worldwide credibility in high places around the world. Creme claims that the Masters are our elder brothers who have been stimulating and enlightening us since man’s creation. In the next issue, I will address in more detail how Creme has supported his claim that Maitreya and the other ascended masters are here and ready to solve our most critical problems. Simply put, Creme validates his claims by pointing to various miraculous events that have occurred around the world: ie. statues that weep real tears and blood.

In England, holy messages have appeared when housewives cut the vegetables. The seeds are rearranged, spelling out the following message, “Allah is Great. Mohammad is his prophet.” Healing waters have also appeared worldwide, as  at Tiacote  in Mexico, some of the most miraculous cures from cancer, AIDS, warts and boils have allegedly been manifested as miraculous healings. Then there is “the milk miracle” which occurred in the Hindu community, where the milk offered to the gods disappeared, as if the idols actually drank the milk. Creme claims that Maitreya and a group of ascended masters made the milk disappear.

The danger for God’s people is that Benjamin Creme is considered the most credible source of information about endtime revelations. As for me, I look to the clouds and not to the Himalaya’s, the deserts or any other part of the world to find Jesus.

To know more about the endtime players among the false prophets, I recommend “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”

Sexual Sin Is An End Time Sign

The Sex-Witchcraft Connection began in the days of Noah and it is an end time sign  NOW!

How did it all begin?  The answer can be found in the book of Enoch:  the rise of witchcraft.  Fallen angels of Noah’s day taught their human wives curious arts.  In other words, the fallen angels of Noah’s day birthed witchcraft with the human women they were having sex with, and from whom they conceived children, called the giants or the Nephilim.  According to this ancient book, mankind’s involvement with witchcraft and other aspects of occultism fell under the direction of Semjaza, Armaros, Baraqijal, Kokabel, Ezeqell, Agragiel, Shamsiel and Sriel.  Here is a quote from Enoch ch8:2

And there was great impiety, they turned away from God, and committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semajaza taught the casting of spells and release from spells, Baarqijal taught astrology, Kokabel taught the constellations and portents, Ezeqeel the knowledge of clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun and Sriel the course of the moon.  And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven.

Generally, we associate witchcraft with Africa, Haiti, Louisiana, predominately among people of color.  Nevertheless, witchcraft also thrive for centuries in Western Europe, as early as the 12th century.  Back then, anyone who had sex with a demon was considered a witch in the 12th century and beyond.

Consequently, illicit sex is central to the definition of witchcraft itself, particularly sex with demons.  The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth warned that the last days would be “like the days of Noah.”  People of today don’t necessarily realize  it but when they go off into their sexual perversions, they are having sex with demons and are actually practicing witchcraft.

The bible says that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft—that when we fornicate, we are sinning against our own bodies.  When people have oral and

Sexual sin and perversion: The Devil’s Playground

anal sex, they are making an invitation to demons who then open up demonic doorways which the occult world calls chakras.  Those who practice sexual immorality and perversion have opened themselves to demons through the demonic doorways  in the  mouth and throat, the sexual orifices and their anus.

Here is a classic example of the sex-witchcraft connection.  I received a telephone call from a woman who was seeking prayer whom I will call “Diana.” Diana stated that she wanted me to pray against a demon that occupied her home.  The pressure was on.  It was tormenting her.  My first question to her was “are you in sexual sin?” It turns out that Diana had been fornicating with another woman’s husband.  Diana believed that this outraged wife hired a voodoo worker, who in turn, put a spell upon her. This kind of thing is a common end time sign.  Repent of the illicit sex, and very often, the witchcraft demon will depart.

In my book, the New Idolatry, I delve much deeper into the witchcraft-sexual connection.  The book has an entire chapter called “Demonic Copulation.” Like in the days of Noah, spirit beings are having sex with professing Christian women.

False Prophets, the Charismatic Movement and the Python Spirit

False Prophets, the Charismatic Movement and the Python Spirit

DID “THUS SAITH THE LORD?”

 A python spirit is a spirit of divination as portrayed in Acts 16:16, the woman who foretold who the Apostles were. Even though she told the truth, Paul cast that demon from her. He was grieved,

Only the Holy Ghost knows how many in Christendom who claim to be prophets by declaring , “thus saith the Lord,” or “God told me,” or “I was led in the spirit”—are really the messengers of Satan sent to control your life in God by the python spirit. Today, in the 21st century, churches are filled with soothsayers and charismatic hype masters whose message from the pulpit is merely a gratification of the flesh. There is a seductive spirit of divination sweeping across churches of all persuasions, seeking to control the lives of the un-suspecting. Laity leaders serve as divination foot-soldiers,forearmed “with a word” to maintain the power and authority of those in the pulpits. Demons help out also as they whisper into congregant’s ears, “give a $1000 dollars.”

I can recall that one of my associates, Minister Kellie,  completely delivered depression  in record time by the power of God, was approached by a member of her former church. Although Kellie’s  progress is quite  remarkable, the former church member approached her with a “thus saith the Lord.” “I had a vision of you and I saw you have a python snake attached to your spirit.  Are you okay? Since you left the church, we’ve all had concerns about you. We’ve all been praying for your return to the fold.”

In one of our mentoring telephone  conversations, Kellie casually mentioned this but I could tell that she was shaken by it. I yelled through the telephone “NO! STOP. THAT WORD CAME FROM THE HEART OF A DEMON ASSIGNED TO STEAL YOUR RECOVERY FROM YOU! DO NOT RECEIVE IT!!!!”

Certainly, professing Christians without knowledge may seem to have good intentions.Yet, when you find yourself in bondage to what they claim God has said about you to them, what does it matter whether they had either good or bad intentions??? The results are the same.Your spirit has been penetrated and the enemy has successfully planted his desires into YOUR spirit to cause you confusion and ultimate harm!!!!

Take it from someone who knows. I am well insulated by God from face to face contact with people who allow demons to use them as messengers of Satan to control my life . I have even learned how to block out my dreams. So when the enemy cannot “reach me,” he’ll make a phone call, send a Facebook message or send an email.

Now I know that’s right!

I have personally  received “thus saith the Lords” in emails and over the telephone on quite a few occasions. Now when I personally receive “a word” about someone else, I have learned to “keep my mouth shut.” Control freaks can’t do this. They are under too much compulsion to blurt out knowledge obtained by supernatural means to prove that “they are anointed of God.”

Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. Then he will use your self-induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring his plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy. You see, it is easier  “do what they do,” with your cooperation and consent. In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits.

Recently,someone sent me a message. He had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me because of my website and that they were attempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold him. Wouldn’t make any sense cause the damage was already done. Coincidence or not, at that very moment,I was involved in a situation with someone who had “witchcraft in her background.” So of course, my eyebrow was raised but I didn’t panic. I was just extra careful and observant.

The thing to do is to “watch and pray.”

Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone who you care about.Pray and rest in God. If God showed him  that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling him  to pray. Fallen angels are extremely skilled at using friends, the people even of your own household, to speak evil into your life. So wisdom is certainly necessary. I learned the hard way to “be slow to speak.”

Therefore, when someone comes to you with a “thus saith the Lord” and it does not compute with you, you must become verbally aggressive.I do it regularly. People may think that I am crazy but I am quick to get animated and boldly declare, “no. I rebuke that. I don’t receive that.”

Sometimes I get worst and like the Lord, I’ll speak directly to that demon and say “get thee behind me.” I don’t care what people think. It is too important that I guard my spirit.

YOU MUST DO THE SAME!

If you have left the church or you are considering leaving, perhaps you would like to be assigned one of our ministers to mentor you.  If so, give us a call at             518-477-5759      

 To know more about the python spirit, divination and the charismatic movement, you need “the New Idolatry.”  Here is a short quote:

Like New Age mysticism, charismatic witchcraft is the practice of white magic.  For the sake of comparison, consider how both a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian would approach a typical problem, namely, a woman seeking to stop the infidelity of a lover or husband. 

 From the occultist, the woman might be required to purchase a defense enchantment like burying her man’s shirt at full moon, while pronouncing a curse or magic formula 7 times.  As the shirt wears out and disintegrates in the ground over time, so also will the man’s love for the other woman fade and dissolve. 

 What does the Charismatic Christian advise in a similar instance? 

 Pray over the man’s side of the bed, anoint it with oil or holy water, name it and claim it by sending forth evil prayers against her husband’s  lover, in unsavory ways, unfitting to Jesus Christ, and pray controlling, manipulative prayers to change the man’s behavior.

  Rather than deal openly with the issues of infidelity, sin and spousal abuse, Charismatics are infamous for seeking “the supernatural solution.” (page 16)

I want to take the opportunity to introduce a new writer, Wenona Russ, author of ‘The Makings of a False Prophet.’  I highly recommend this book if you want to further guard your spirit against false prophets and false prophecies.

Why are there so many demons in the church? Part 2

In my last note, I ask the question of why is there an increase of demonic activity in the church.

The book the  ‘New Idolatry,’, Pam Sheppard presents a detailed explanation as to why there are demons in the church, from a historical perspective.  It is a must read for all discerning Christians. You can get the book by clicking the following links: www.lulu.com/content/8761420 for the softcover and www.lulu.com/content/11927464 for the e-book.

I realize that even though I went into it briefly, I didn’t answer the question!

We talked about how the churches today has given free course and access in the spirit realm to the spirit of Baal, and how the Spirit of God is NOT in the churches today.

Just in case you missed that, let me repeat:  THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HAS LEFT THE BUILDING(S)!!!!!

How can I say that?

Well, a study of church history alone will reveal that, but my most compelling reason for saying that ICHABOD has been written across the doors of most churches and ministries is evident right in the Word of God!

But I can also say that because DELIVERANCE is NOT being done and taught in the church today!  We have an increase of people who vehemently deny the existence of demons in the lives of so-called believers, therefore ruling out the need for deliverance.

I have never lived in a day where deliverance is so spoken AGAINST.  This is sad because the Word CLEARLY states that those who believe and are baptized WILL CAST OUT DEVILS (Mark 16:16-18)!

In Matthew 12 (read and study it for yourself), the scriptures go into how Jesus and the disciples were rebuked by the Pharisees (the religious folks) because they were getting something to eat and Jesus was healing folk…on the sabbath day.  So Jesus tells them HE is GREATER than the sabbath, yet they do not discern who HE is, so it means nothing to them.  The Pharisees then went on to accuse him of doing deliverance (casting out devils) by the spirit of Beelzebub (or the devil).

We hear folks talk all the time about blasphemy against the Holy Ghost.  And traditionally speaking, we in the pentecostal and charismatic movements have been taught that blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is speaking against speaking in tongues.  But I want you to take a look at that scripture…in its PROPER context.

For years, we have been taught that scripture (Matt. 12:31-32) out of its proper context.  We all assumed that meant ‘you better not say there is no such thing as speaking in tongues…’  That is NOT blasphemy against the Holy Ghost.

Read through the WHOLE chapter, and you will see that Jesus speaks MORE on the CASTING OUT OF DEVILS,  which we term as ‘deliverance,’ throughout the chapter.

It is when the blind and deaf man is brought to Jesus that He speaks of the Kingdom of God.  He explains how the devil wouldn’t cast out himself; it would tear down his kingdom.  Jesus speaks FIRST of binding the strongman of a house (one of our favorite scriptures we use to teach on deliverance), then being able to take the goods of the house.  It is also here where Jesus rebukes the Pharisees for asking for a sign.  He calls them ‘generation of vipers,’ and ‘a wicked generation’ because they seek after a sign.

It is in this chapter where Jesus also speaks of the instance when an evil spirit is cast out of a man.  The spirit is not at rest because it cannot find a home…

Matt. 12:43-45

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

I go into all this for a reason.  When DELIVERANCE is spoken against and not taught-or improperly taught-then it is incomplete.  There is more to deliverance than JUST casting out devils.  After the devils are cast out, that vessel it was cast out of MUST BE FILLED with THE HOLY GHOST.  Or else that evil spirit WILL come back!

The same principle in deliverance applies to a HOUSE as well.  Let’s say a church goes through deliverance.  The pastor on down to the baby in the pew gets delivered.  BUT after the deliverance, the PRESENCE OF GOD, the HOLY GHOST has NOT been allowed to enter…not into the individual, and not into the building.

It is only a matter of time before those same evil spirits that were cast out WILL re-enter.  They will re-enter that individual…and they will re-enter -AND EVENTUALLY INFEST-the WHOLE sanctuary!

THIS IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE LOCAL CHURCHES!!!!

Those who have been in communing with the Holy Ghost has been hearing the same message:  THAT THE HOLY GHOST HAS LEFT THE INSTITUTIONALIZED CHURCH!  Many people are hearing this same message; it is not the voices of two or three crazed, embittered folks who left church because they were angry because someone took their seat…NO!

More and more people are hearing the call of God…to COME OUT of the CHURCH…because HE is no longer there.

ICHABOD has been written across many a church front door…and the scary part is that millions don’t even know it!

So if the HOLY GHOST is NOT in the church, then what spirit is?

THE SPIRIT OF BAAL!

THE HOLY GHOST IS NOT IN THE CHURCHES BECAUSE BAAL HAS TAKEN OVER THE CHURCHES!  Therefore, Baal and all his demons are now running the churches.

As we all know, God will NOT dwell in an unclean temple…not our fleshly temples, these mortal bodies we live in-neither in these temples made with hands.

So, consequently…the churches are now overrun with demons, demons given access by way of the welcoming of the Spirit of Baal.

Baal gets an invitation to these houses when we are disobedient to the things of God.

THAT’S why there are so many demons in the church today…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many a true prophet has turned into a false (Baal) prophet due to disobedience…

In my book, ‘The Makings of a False Prophet,’ I help ministers and ministers-to-be discern which spirit is operating and driving them to and in ministry.

Why are there so many demons in the church?

The book the  ‘New Idolatry,’ it is noted that there is  a barrage of demonic activity that is ON THE RISE in the Christian institutionalized church and the author, Pam Sheppard presents a detailed explanation from an historical perspective.  It is a must read for all discerning Christians. You can get the book by clicking the following links: www.lulu.com/content/8761420 for the softcover and www.lulu.com/content/11927464 for the e-book.

Here is my personal take on what is happening.

Is it really happening?

YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT’S HAPPENING!!!!!

Demons are infesting the church because of many reasons.  One, NO ONE IS REALLY DOING REAL DELIVERANCE IN THESE CHURCHES.  I don’t care what you see going on in your services, at your altars, no matter what type of ‘spirit’ you feel being released in the building.  It is NOT the HOLY Spirit.  How do I know this?  Because afterwards the people AND THE LEADERSHIP will bear fruits meet for REPENTANCE.  They will turn away from their sin, be remorseful for their sin and never look back.

This is NOT happening at the altars of Baal.

Yes, I called them ALTARS OF BAAL!

Baal is the fertility god of crops, fruit and cattle.  FERTILITY god.  Having babies.  Getting married.  Increasing in money, goods, houses, cars, lands.  Getting pregnant. THAT’s what Baal offered its worshippers in the Bible.  

WHAT is being prophesied and sought after MOST in the churches today?

HOUSES, REAL ESTATE, MARRIAGES, BABIES, INCREASE, PROSPERITY….

Baal was worshipped by sacrifices of the first born, as well in music and dance!  In the churches today, music ministry is BIG BUSINESS.  Anybody opening up a ministry today knows that if you want to attract big crowds, you have to have a powerful music ministry.

And now we have this liturgical dancing in the church.  Not to mention the ‘dancing in the spirit’ that is popular in the pentecostal churches for years.

No one stopped to think that all this emphasis on music and dancing and the DE-EMPHASIS and LACK OF FOCUS on the Word of God has been nothing more than a ploy by the spirit of Baal that has crept in the churches…mocking the Spirit of God.  And folks who don’t know the Word eat it up…Sunday after Sunday.

And wonder why they are MORE bound and oppressed by demons 20 years into their so-called salvations than they were when they first ‘got saved?’

So if the god of the institutionalized church is demonic, what do you think the fruit of whatever goes on in these houses of worship will be?

DEMONIC!

THIS is why people can’t get healed, delivered or saved in these churches.  They are worshipping and praying to a false god!

Have any of you ever had a roach problem?  Roach infestation is one of the most humiliating, debilitating experiences one can go through.  How about beg bug infestations?  OH, that’s even worse!

The nights of no sleep, being bit by bed bugs at your most vulnerable moments, when you are asleep?

How about putting down a cup of coffee and then when you pick it back up to drink it, there’s a roach floating in your cup?????  YUCKKKK!!!!!

Well, there are many, MANY people who are living in the these spiritual houses that are INFESTED with DEMONS.  They go back time after time again, to be tormented, humiliated, embarrassed, exploited, and victimized by these spiritual rodents.

Many of you who have had to deal with infestation know that a lot of times the only way to deal with infestation is to MOVE!

I have had to deal with both….and I will tell you.  The ONLY relief I found from dealing with roach and bed bug infestation was to MOVE out of the houses that were infested!  Yes, I spent all kinds of money trying to get rid of the pesky boogers.  I fought bravely and valiantly the good fight to get rid of them.  But they won, time and time again.  It would seem that they would go away…but it was just for a season.  Then they would return…with a VENGEANCE!

This is the decision that most of you who are reading this will have to do.  You think if you stay at your church, that your prayers will somehow get rid of the infestation.  When you fail to realize the longer you stay, the more ground and territory they gain IN and OVER YOU.

The only hope you have to is to GET OUT!  MOVE!  Don’t look back.  Leave the stuff you gained there because that stuff is infested, too.  Start over from scratch.

If you step out on faith, I PROMISE…God will order your steps and will lead you by HIS SPIRIT!!!!!

God Bless you!

GOD RESISTS THE PROUD

GOD RESISTS THE PROUD

“Faces of the Religious Demon”

 By Pam Sheppard
“The devil’s deception was broken in my life because I am quick to admit to error and I am not a people pleaser.”

Facebook is a place where everyone wants to teach and be heard and few want their followers to know that they don’t know very much.   Rebellion and belligerence is very apparent in their various posts which portrays a rebellious  spirit. Since rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, many Facebook teachers are in the hands of the enemy and God has turned some of  them over to strong delusion.

There are some teachers on fb that have actually put people in bondage with their teachings.  I won’t call any names but the truth is that their pride keeps them from being teachable. The enemy loves pride because deception is made easy when we think more highly of ourselves then we ought to think. I am not an advocate of the world’s self-esteem teaching that has been adopted by the religious world.  Self esteem as defined by the world is when the world has high regards for you.  You are accepted, found to be worthy and considered competent. In other words, worldly self-esteem is rooted in what others think of you. And for this reason, those who seek worldly favor will compromise to obtain and sustain the world’s approval.  Christians of this persuasion find that they are always trying to fit in and in so doing, they disobey the Lord’s will to please others.

I have purposed and established in my heart that my self-esteem is found in Jesus Christ.  The Lord is the only one I need to please because I love truth. When the motives of the heart are not pure, truth will be hidden.  To be pure is to be clear, articulate, unclouded understanding.  Not confused, covered up or clandestine. When something is not pure, it is defiled.  To defile is to contaminate or to pollute.  When the heart is not pure, then Satan’s job is easy because defilement has come from within US, usually because of pride. For pride begins with what we say in our hearts and what we believe in our minds. Jesus linked pride to adulteries, fornication, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy and foolishness. (Mark 7:20-22) A proud mind is not pure because it thinks, feels and behaves in ways that suggest that we think too highly of ourselves.

Pride, self-esteem and vanity deny and conceal the truth. These 3 traits will pull you away from the Lord’s will by quenching and grieving the Holy Spirit and your spirit will become blocked from God’s revelation about what is to come.  Pride is also PHONY. Nothing real about it because it puts forth a facade or an act. Pride will cause you to deny your feelings, and pretend so much that you even fool yourself.  But the devil is not fooled. He knows when you are “fronted” before him in your effort to appear to be in control, putting forth that lie when you routinely boast that you are blessed by God. As you over compensate, pride will prevent you from admitting that you need help and therefore the enemy can use your pride to block you from crucial resources.

The proud religious person must ALWAYS appear to be knowledgeable and therefore he or she will never admit to not knowing or understanding a verse of scripture, because they are concerned that others will think them stupid and so they will even lie to cover up their ignorance or their weakness as they  hide the truth to protect their religious image. Such people are already in the hands of  a religious demon [The Faces of a Religious Demon].  Pride goeth before a fall!

A proud person is not wise either. They make stupid, even costly mistakes. As vanity is excessive pride, a vain person’s conceit will bring sure destruction for self-deception is an open doorway to failure.  Proud people :

  • are outraged when others they that they are superior to them
  • are defensive, always justifying themselves
  • are critical in their efforts to tear down others to build themselves up
  • will hunger for prestige by seeking praise and approval from others
  • adopt the ways of those they are trying to please.
  • make EVERYTHING personal.
  • will live in the past and hunger for “the good old days.”

To the proud I  declare that the world did not create you. The world did not redeem you. When you justify yourself before men, you establish them as your lord with authority and you enable the enemy to deceive you. Remember. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

If you are too proud to admit that you have been worshipping the fake Jesus, you are trapped in a pit of religion.  There is help available.  Come join our Facebook group. Either comment in this post or send a message to www.facebook.com/pamela.sheppard.911

I chose this blog to cite because I whole-heartedly agree with what is written here.  Many are trapped in religion and religious ministry because of pride.  In my new eBook ‘The Makings of a False Prophet,’ I bring out these points in this article.  The Spirit of the Lord TRULY speaks through more than one vessel!  Pam and I did not know one another when she wrote this piece, neither had I read it before or during writing my book!

Jakes’-Despise Small Beginnings?

By Wenona Russ

Bishop TD Jakes  – “Let the Vision Come From With You…”

I thought this was a very interesting video.  Bishop TD Jakes speaks on fulfilling his vision of ministry and not despising the day of small beginnings.  Of his humble beginnings in West Virginia, when Jakes and his family struggled with poverty and ministry.

When he speaks of his humble beginnings, Jakes speak with much fervor and passion, as the congregation agrees with him and can totally relate to what he is talking about.

This is a good thing, right?

I mean, in order for a preacher to preach to ME, I have to know that he/she knows my struggle, my pain, my sin, my weaknesses and will be able to offer some help and hope to get me out of my situation.

This has been the rise to success for this entrepeneur, author, businessman, CEO, pastor, father, husband, council to the politicians….

But that very ambition that drove this success has-in the past-been the cause of other preachers’ failures.

We have to be careful that ambition does not drive us to make decisions that can have an eternal effect upon our lives.

Just some food for thought….Shalom!
