Are You Praying to And Under the Power of the Devil?

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

tongues2

People who are comfortable and satisfied with their spirituality and their churchgoing experiences do not contact me. No problem. To each his own is MY motto. On the contrary, I hear from the confused, frustrated ones who realize something is wrong with both their spiritual life and their church, but they have difficulty in putting their finger on the problem.

Most people who call me think that I operate as a  prayer line.  Prayer is certainly an important  part of what I do.  However, the only prayer I offer for someone that I do not know is “Lord, expose the darkness to this person and if this person continues in telephone coaching  with me, then give me wisdom and revelation as to how to pray for this person.”  Help me to know this person’s heart so that I can pray YOUR perfect will for him or her.”

Prayer is an invocation to either God or the enemy. You can even sing a prayer. A few years ago,  I had to delete a song from my cell phone that I used to love and sing along with, until I realized that it was an anthem, even an invocation to fallen angels. The song is “I need an Angel” by the first American idol, Reuben Studdard. “I NEED AN ANGEL. CALLING AN ANGEL. SEND ME AN ANGEL—-NOW! HEAR ME NOW!”

No, I had to let that song go. We are not to ask God to send us an angel. If you are one of His elect, you were assigned an angel at your birth.  . If you command an angel to come to you, you are setting yourself up for a devilish response. For when you start communicating with a fallen angel, deceived that God sent him, the more you communicate with that angel, the more he steals your will power with the ultimate goal of taking over your entire life!!!

Then there are the prayers that emanate from those who seek the Father but the prayer bypasses or ignores the Son of God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. ALL such prayers are heard and answered by fallen deities—angels that call themselves ascended masters. The fallen angel Maitreya hears the prayers made by those who practice Hinduism and Islam, while Jesus Sananda hears the prayers of nominal Christians and New Agers. The fallen angel who calls himself “Mother Mary” hears and responds to the prayers of Catholics. Satan himself focuses on the invocations he receives from witches and warlocks.

Then there are those who claim to be “praying in the spirit.” aka praying in tongues.  You need to know that there is no such thing as a prayer language.  This is a practice that the devil has tricked Charismatics to do.  For if you pray in a language that you don’t understand, is it not possible that the enemy is using you to pray not only against your loved ones but also against yourself? Could you not be the source or the tool that Satan is using to fulfil his purpose, which is to kill, steal and destroy by witchcraft curses uttered out of YOUR own mouth?

Speaking of witchcraft, Charismatic Christians are invoking witchcraft  when they use prayer to seek to control of the lives of others. Soulish prayers of this kind energize psychic power by projecting one’s thoughts on to persons that these folk are praying for, by saying that such and so person SHALL do this or that. Such prayer makes demands upon God to “make something happen.” Satan  answers these kinds of prayers.

According to Jessie Penn Lewis in her book “Soul and Spirit”

Every prayer should be directed Godward, and should never be a telling the Lord what to do for somebody else. We may pray that God will direct THEM what to do, but we ought not to say that they MUST do what WE think is God’s will they should do, or even that they SHALL NOT DO, even what we know  it is wrong.” (Soul and Spirit pg 35)

I agree with this statement completely.

For example, I receive frequent prayer requests from women, asking me to pray for their wayward husbands, that he will leave the other woman, return home, do this or that. I perceive that any prayer made to control another person’s will is a witchcraft prayer.

I will ask God for His will to be done in the situation. I don’t assume that EVERY marriage was made in heaven. So I ask for vision, clarity, peace to come into the wife’s heart, and for conviction and sin to come from God upon the husband. If he is under the spell of sex magic from a witch, I ask for God to reveal it to me and if I hear from God on it, I will proceed to break that spell. However, in no way, will I ask God to MAKE the husband DO ANYTHING!!! I don’t practice witchcraft in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth!

If you believe that you are in bondage based upon a “witchcraft prayer,” call me at  1-888-818-1117.  ARE YOU READY TO BE UN_DECEIVED? Don’t call me if you are looking for “same ole religiosity.” I do not pray for the hearer to “feel good.”  I am looking for truth and wisdom that brings positive results.

So  I ain”t about serving up a religious prayer on anyone. Such a prayer is headed straight  to the devil. Also, if you are continuing to be  tormented and you won’t stop praying in tongues when I ask this of you, don’t waste my time by contacting me because no one can help you until you stop speaking in tongues. YOU ARE PUTTING CURSES ON YOURSELF AND THOSE YOU LOVE!!!

Pam Sheppard Ministry Casts Out Evil Spirits Over the Phone!

By Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

demons

Casting out demons 2000 years ago was a lot more elementary and certainly less complicated than what believers have to contend with today. For as the world evolved from an agricultural to an industrial society, so have demons and devils adjusted to the ever-increasing sophistication of modern times. For example, with the advent of the telephone, who would have thought that it could be used to cast out devils? I certainly never considered it until spontaneously, I was compelled to do so and then was shocked when it actually worked!

I believe the year was 2002 when I received a phone call from Doris Wagner, the author of “How to Cast Out Demons” and the wife of one of the well-known evangelical leaders, the late Dr. Peter Wagner of the Fuller Theological Seminary Institute of Church Growth in Colorado. I had requested that Doris write a review of my first book, “To the Curse the Root,” and she did so. A few years later, she called me on the phone with a request that I conduct a deliverance of a minister who lived in my state. At the time, she could locate only two deliverance workers in NY, one in Buffalo and myself.

The minister in question who I’ll simply call, “Rev,” had obtained Doris’s book because he needed to be set free from a demon. Prepared to fly from NY to Colorado, Rev was desperate. Too busy to handle his case, Doris did a search on the web to find someone from his home state and I was the only one online that she could find in New York, besides the man in Buffalo, who did not return her call. So, “I was all she wrote.”

A day or so later, Rev. called me. In short, he was too suspicious of me to travel the 3 hours to my city and that same suspicion would not allow him to accept my invitation to travel to him. So, exasperated with this demon, I simply commanded it to come out of him over the telephone, and I was as shocked as Rev. was. He was immediately delivered over the airways.

Pompous and proud, a bona-fide mega preacher wannabee, the “Rev” boastfully said to me, “Pam, when I get big, I’ll look out for you.” I guess he never got big because that was 17 years ago, and I have not heard from him yet! The truth of the matter, with such a proud spirit, I would not be surprised to hear that demons have re-infested him, in one way or the other.

So I know you are wondering how “Rev. Mr. Big” became demonized in the first place! A single man, the Rev had been sleeping with one of the single women who was a member of the congregation that he pastored. His girlfriend was the leader of the church’s “deliverance team.” On the night that the Rev. was demonized, his girlfriend and the rest of the team were in the church building, casting out demons from someone— when the demons turned on them, very much like is recorded in the book of Acts concerning the sons of Sceva. The demon or demons in the captive used the captive’s body to jump on the members of the deliverance team and “conduct a beat down”.

The girlfriend frantically ran to the telephone—-check this out–and called Rev.

He had been in a deep, coma like sleep and he woke up and picked up the phone, only to hear his girlfriend screaming in fright. Not fully understanding what was going on, all of a sudden, he saw something that he described as “a silver ball like thing,” rolling like a bowling ball down his alley and entered into his chest. Until he contacted Doris and then me, he had been possessed with a spirit of fear for about 6 weeks. He was afraid to come out of his house, and preaching from his pulpit was particularly challenging, to say the least. The fear was so debilitating, that he was anxious to fly to Colorado from NY for Doris Wagner to set him free.

When I suggested that he travel to me, a distance of about 3 hours by bus, train or car, he refused. He was too fearful for that. He could take a plane because he could sit down in the seat and close his eyes. But he could not handle any other kind of transportation. There is a flight from his city to mine, that takes about 45 minutes but we never thought of that at the time. So I offered to travel to New York City but the Rev refused because he was both fearful and suspicious of me, for I was in no way as noteworthy as Doris Wagner. So while he was yet speaking, the Holy Ghost moved on me and I commanded the spirit to come out of him.

It did so immediately.

This may seem like a simple deliverance success story. However, it is not. There is much more to it than meets the eye. So what am I suggesting about this incident?

Rev. was not saved, his girlfriend was not saved, and the demons had taken over the entire sanctuary. If I had travelled to him and attempted to conduct the deliverance in the Rev’s church, I suspect that the demon would NOT have come out of him.

Thank God for the telephone and thank God for Mr. Alexander Graham Bell.

Those who practice Deliverance 101 would boast, “Oh, this case is elementary. Rev. and his girlfriend were committing the sin of fornication, so they became vulnerable to demons. Sins gives ground to the devil. They put themselves in harm’s way by trying to cast out demons from people. Case closed. Simple.

No, it is not so simple. For there is MORE! This one case did more than just reveal to me that demons can be cast out over the telephone. When I revisit the experience today, I can apply what 17 additional years under my belt have taught me. My experience with “the Rev” confirms what I have suspected for the last decade–a revelatory question that led me to write the next 5 books: Faces of the Religious Demon, Come Out of Her God’s People, the New Idolatry, the Church of the end-time Zombies, and Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry.

So here goes, the question.

Have religious devils already taken over the pulpits throughout the entire organized church, perhaps the pulpits of entire nation, perhaps pulpits worldwide?

I suggest to you an emphatic “yes!!!!”

Casting Out Demons Vs The Nature of Your Soul

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard pastorps911

When Jesus said “Get thee behind me Satan,  He was not talking to Peter. he was talking to a religious spirit that spoke to Him through the mouth of Peter. Peter was not yet born again but he was certainly one of the elect.  so I say to you if the enemy can speak words through Peter of all people, he can also speak through us to both others and to ourselves.  Paul explained it to the Ephesians when he warned that the battle is not between us and other human beings.  It is between us and the principalities and powers that others have yielded to by walking in the flesh and unknowingly made invitations to demons in the process.

so check this out from Jessie Penn-Lewis in her amazing book, /War On The Saints, written over a century ago::

In the unregenerate man the will is enslaved to Satan, but in the man who has been regenerated, and delivered from the power of sin, the will is liberated to choose the things of God. In one who has thus been brought into fellowship with God, Satan can only gain ground by stratagem, or, in Bible terms, by “wiles”; for he knows he will never get from a believer deliberate consent to the entry, and control of evil spirits. The Deceiver can only hope to obtain that consent by guile: i.e., by feigning to be God Himself, or a messenger from Him. He knows, too, that such a believer is determined to obey God at all costs, and covets the knowledge of God above all else on earth. There is, therefore, no other way to deceive this one, but by counterfeiting God Himself, His presence and His workings; and under pretense of being God, to obtain the co-operation of the man’s will in accepting further deceptions; so as eventually to lead to “possession” of some part of the believer’s mind or body, and thus injure or hinder his usefulness to God, as well as that of others who will be affected by him.

As an example, parents don’t set out to hurt us.  Yet if Satan has access to them, they will say things, think things and do things that hurt and even damage their offspring for years to come.  In such instances, the enemy was working through them against their children.  They did not know it but when they die, they will suffer immensely. Not necessarily in hell, but when they give an account before the throne of God.

Understanding Demonic Torment

“Why do demons torment? It would seem that they would prefer to be quiet so that they can remain inside their host unnoticed. Yet all of a sudden they break loose in a wild tirade, letting everyone know their location. Certainly demons like to mock their prey but most of them are quite wise. So I believe there are other answers

I suggest to you that they often torment because God insists that they do!!!

Some people accept torment as “suffering for the Lord”, yet they ain’t even saved. The truth is that I would know nothing of demonic torment if it were not for hundreds of captives with false conversions who have sought me to cast out tormenting demons.

From the positive side, torment has a meaning. Torment is a sign to the victim that he or she is not saved. Why? Because those whom God has saved have been given peace, and not a spirit of fear or torment. Nevertheless, torment also is allowed by God because He wants the tormented one to realize that something is wrong. And since He allows the enemy to do this to a person who has had a false conversion, it is all a sign that God truly intends to save him or her.

Sometimes a victim is tormented because the gods of their non-Christian religion, are outraged that their victim decided to go to church and “accept Jesus.” Often “offered to the gods” by their parents, the occult/witchcraft demons stand on their covenant rights, ie. “His parents gave him to US!” On the other hand, The religious demon stands on “well, I was asked to come into his heart, so I have a contract as well. He gave himself to us and invited us in, by his own free will.”” The victim is viewed by occult demons as a traitor for joining up with a religious demon and the IC. . The fight over the victim between the occult/witchcraft spirit and the religious demon has its battleground in the soul and body of the victim, experienced as torment. Africans, Asians and Indians who convert to Christianity yet they had a false conversion are likely to be tormented.

Look at it like this. The enemy may know that even though you are not saved NOW, that you shall BE a devout, strong believer once born again. Consequently the religious demon assigned may be targeting you with strong torment while he still has a chance.

Some have been deceived into believing that they are tormented because they have a special calling from God and so demons are trying to destroy them. Such a belief is something religious demons concocted to cause their victims to believe that they are glorifying God in their suffering.. They also do it to lift up their victims in pride because they know that God resists the proud.

Then again, they often torment because they can. Repenting and crying out only seems to help because they want it to. They will temporarily turn down the torment when you do religious acts. prayers of this nature only go to the Fake Jesus, and the demons to keep up the charade so that you will continue to pray to the Fake Jesus. Praying to Jesus Sananda Immanuel will ensure that you will never be delivered. .

Look at it this way.

If you do religious things like speaking in tongues, praying or reading, or any other swag you may display, the torment might stop or ease up a bit. Just know that it is temporary for the torment shall return. If you are deceived and you persevere to know truth, Jesus said that the truth shall MAKE you free. You may not need spirits cast from you, for some will leave on their own accord. However, if you do, the more truth you have received, the less spiritual strength the demons will have in battle.

HOW WITCHES AND WARLOCKS MANIPULATE OUR DREAMS

By Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

As  I continue to read the book of a former grandmaster occultist from  Nigeria, I am amazed at the power of the name of Jesus Christ of  Nazareth over ALL the power of the enemy. “Erik emphatically reports that  none of his nefarious practices ever worked against a true Christian  but only what he refers to as WEAK Christians.  In my estimation, a weak  Christian is no Christian at all.  This is an unsaved person who has  been duped.  The reality is that he or she has a form of godliness that  denies the power of the Holy Ghost.

Anyway, since dreams and  dream interpretation have been a specialty of mine for years, I was  interested in what Eric had to report about them.  He reported that he  manipulated  those under his control by sending them demons to disturb  their dreams. In anticipation of your questions, Eric did not explain HOW  this was done.  What he explains are his various initiations by  providing lots of details. For this reason, I provide no identifying  info about Eric’s book.  It is simply too graphic.

For the  purpose of this post, I simply report that Eric revealed that there  are different categories of manipulations that witches and warlocks use  to manipulate dreaming.  Nightmares are generally the result of demons.  Eric does not explain HOW this is done, but simply reports that he sent  demons to people to create dream experiences to bring a dreamer’s life  into a catastrophe, such as “bad luck” in business, health, marriage,  relationships, finances, to mention but a few. Through an occult art he  called, Putanivigrah, Eric projected demons against “weak Christians”.

These demons used dreams to pursue and fight against the person to whom  they are sent.  Whether a witch was behind it or not, I know from  personal experience what demons try to do to a person while they are  sleep.  It gives new meaning to the children’s prayer, “now I lay me  down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.”For example, demons will  come into your sleep for the soul intention of weakening your will to  live, while you are in the altered state of sleep.

In fact, I have had  several dreams like this myself. So when a client comes to me for  deliverance counseling, one of the first forms of information I seek is  a presentation of the client’s dreams.  From listening to their dreams,  I can see the agenda of the demons in my client’s life.  Most of  my spiritual deception came through dreams sent to me by religious  demons. Each time I married the wrong man, a demon gave me a dream of  the man shortly before I met him. Demons use dreams to make various  suggestions that they try to set me up to follow.  And a demon that I  call “the spirit of death” has tried to cause me to die in my sleep.

They do this by pretending to be a dead person that you may have known  well, respected, or even loved. In the dream, they want you to follow  them with your spirit. The goal? Your death in your sleep.  Here  is the scenario.  Clothed in appearance and even in voice like “the dead  one,” the demon will create the dream. The intent is for you to “follow  the dead person.” Demons have tried this strategy on me time and time  again.  Here is an example.  My deceased father and his dead girlfriend  are taking me to the Bahamas and my father is paying for the trip. Cy  Sheppard never spent much money on me when he was alive, and the demon  KNEW that.  So in the dream, since it was a free trip, I was eager to  go.

However, whether it be my angel or my own spirit, I can not find  their hotel room.  I roam around Nassau Bahamas, a place that in the  natural, I am familiar with, but I can’t find my father and his dead girlfriend.  I believe that if I  did, I would have died in my sleep.  The spirit of death is a  demon whose assignment is to take us out before our time, either through  accident, suicide or homicide. When we are sleep is when we are quite  vulnerable. So the Lord has assigned an angel to guard us against the  Eric’s of this world. We must be careful not to provoke our angel with  lies, sin, or pride. That is another subject. DO NOT PROVOKE YOUR ANGEL.

My  purpose is to prepare the elect of God to recognize and overcome strong  religious delusion that pervades the last of the last days, through  COUNSELING, CONSULTATION,TRAINING, MENTORING AND THE PUBLICATION OF  BOOKS, ARTICLES AND STUDY GUIDES. My best work on this subject is the New Idolatry, the latest of the 6 books.

E-book Excerpts: The New Idolatry

Written by Pastor Pam Sheppard of Pam Sheppard Ministry

The New Idolatry:  Charismatic Witchcraft, Deliverance and Other. Counterfeits.  (Pg 95-96)

What are the plagues?

The worst plague is a curse of spiritual blindness caused by delusion and demonic deception. The worst of the worst is to be duped into believing that you are going to heaven, and to die and find yourself in hell for eternity. For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world yet loses his soul? (Matthew 16:25) The fact that countless people have been indoctrinated into the “I accepted Jesus”   practice—also known as the “make a decision for Christ gospel, “ the worst abomination of them all.

For this form of idolatry distorts the word of God to such an extent, than I am willing to estimate that 85% of churchgoers believe that they are saved, and they are not. Counterfeit spiritual births at the altars of God are the absolute worst plague, the fruit of idolatry. This horrendous sign is pervasive throughout the organized church worldwide—a wide gaping hole for demonic infestation and other horrendous plagues to enter with ease.

So it follows that plagues that can destroy the soul are actually worse than those that debilitate the body only. Sickness and disease are certainly among the plagues, but there are several others. In our times, there are plagues that were not around in other generations: HIV/AIDS, crack, violence like drive by shootings, missing children, the domestic violence cycle and so many more.

Addiction of any kind is a plague primarily due to the dysfunction within the human will. As previously addressed, besides the mind and the emotions, the soul also consists of the will. Whenever the human will is in any kind of bondage, a plague is in operation which follows that the soul is seriously damaged.

The Holy Ghost Reveals Truth to Religious Zombies!

400dpilogocropped-1

You should not  force truth on the world. In fact, as an author and a minister, I don’t pressure anyone to believe me. I just pump it out in a Blog, a video TEACHING, A SERMON, a COURSE or IN MY BOOKS===

like BAM!

In other words, take this or leave this as you have a very nice day.

I don’t try to force blind churchgoers to see that the religion they are in is not of God but is instead a bunch of religious lies from the enemy. What actually happens is that zombies who receive the truth are those who have already been prepared by the Holy Ghost. SO IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PREPARED THEN YOU WILL REMAIN DECEIVED and nothing i write or say will mean ANYTHING TO YOU.

Pam Sheppard Ministries (PSM) leaves the un-deception OF ZOMBIES up to the Holy Ghost to open their eyes and show them. It is NOT our job to coerce anyone with the truth. Therefore, you will be required to be as wise as a serpent but as harmless as a dove when zombies are sent to you by God, so as to use YOU  to help undeceive them. Some will be sent by the devil to mock you and to cause confusion.

So, what do you do? You watch and wait and see.

As truth is preached within Pam Sheppard Ministries, it doesn’t take very long for us to tell the difference. When it is the enemy, religious demons in Christian zombies who are bound by their religious persuasions will ultimately show their hand and become confrontational. What they tried to hide can no longer be restrained.

You best believe that every hidden Judas will be exposed, hopefully before they have caused irreparable damage. Prayer is real important to prevent the enemy from destroying everything. Satan has captured the world in politics, religion and every other system.

It is what it is. Deception is the rule and not the exception.

That is, until the Lord Jesus Christ returns to earth! Then we say to Satan “all bets are off!!!”

To know more about Satan’s agenda for these times particularly as it relate to the elect, the world and the devil, any one of these books will open your eyes. The Church of the End-time Zombies, The Fake Jesus and the New Idolatry.

The Black Church and the Mental Health Crisis

By Dr. William M. Young, Sr.

The scene was a poignant one, played out night after night all over the deep south. An exodus of dusty, overworked field slaves trudged through the darkness on their way to a “meeting on the old camp ground.” It was an appointment they had to keep – even after picking and gleaning in cotton fields since the sun’s rising.

Weary bodies were powerless against the compelling draw to the old camp meeting. Soaring spirits sparked exuberance and hopeful anticipation of the transformation about to take place. Some only had an open brush arbor, sometimes called a “brush harbor,” as a place of worship. Others had a little wooden structure they called “the praise house.”

Look now as they gather, singing and strutting on their way. Someone might raise a chorus of “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” and everyone would join the refrain:

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

Perhaps a verse or two of “This Train Is Bound For Glory,” might be heard:

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is bound for glory,

Don’t carry nothing but the righteous and the holy.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

Or the abiding favorite, “Steal Away to Jesus:”

Steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus!

Steal away, steal away home,

I ain’t got long to stay here.

My Lord, He calls me,

He calls me by the thunder;

The trumpet sounds within my soul,

I ain’t got long to stay here.

The mood was jubilant and free because something wonderful was about to happen. These oppressed were preparing for the rapture of emotion and release that would sweep them up and take them beyond their mean and present fate. God’s hope of glory in Jesus promised something wonderful beyond the earthly realm in the hereafter. But a succulent foretaste was available to all every time they gathered for worship.

The itinerant black preacher made his rounds throughout the region, belonging to no one but God. He was the chosen conductor, anointed by his Creator, to lead the flock into an abandon of woes and cares weighty enough to rob them of life. Worshippers filled the arbor and packed the praise house to overflowing. They knew the bonds of depression and hopelessness would soon be unshackled.

God’s conduit of deliverance was the passionate swell of their preacher’s voice, recounting the well-loved Bible stories of “Ole Dan’l in de lions’ den,” or ‘Lil’ David slayin’ that big ole giant Goliah.” That “call-and-response” tradition brought over from the shores of Africa “helped the preacher preach.” He shouts a phrase, and the congregation roars an enthusiastic response. Back and forth, back and forth – the scene builds into a peaking crescendo when he proclaims the Lord’s deliverance in the sermon’s end.

The joyous throng fills the air with unbridled shouting that can be heard for miles around as dancing feet on the old wooden floor planks rumble underneath. What looks like a nonsensical and pointless display of emotion to outsiders is actually a liberating and transforming journey on the glory road. The genius of black preaching brought a cathartic, therapeutic relief that saved a race from committing suicide.

The shouting would go on late into the night and early morning. When the sun rose once more on the monotony of another work day in the fields, new strength and spiritual fortitude had somehow dispelled the fatigue and psychosis brought on by their hapless circumstance.

The black minister “preached them happy,” inciting the frenzied release of the emotional and mental anguish that struck at their sanity. What the black preacher did for his people was a reality, I don’t believe, that was ever lost on him. He understood his call. He understood his mission – the very survival of a race most assuredly rested upon his shoulders.

Today’s call-and-response practice in black congregations with their pastors is derived from those foregenerations. Indeed, the modern role of a pastor and the church family is as vital to African-Americans as ever.

Priests Kill Themselves….Why?

http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/14/10410289-colombian-priests-hire-hitmen-to-kill-themselves

In Bogota, Colombia, two priests hired hitmen to shoot them both.  This headline immediately caught my attention, so I decided to read why would two men of the cloth decide to kill themselves.

It turns out that one of the priests had AIDS and syphillis.  And I guess the other priest went along with the suicide pact probably because he had some kind of affair with the priest with AIDS.

Now, sad to say, we hear about this type of thing ALL the time.  Stories of sexual corruption within the Roman Catholic church.  Its quite sickening!

I read a testimony of a former nun, her name is Sister Charlotte, and how she was abused in the Roman Catholic Convent system.  She tells of the babies that were killed by Mother Superior, babies belonging to the priests.  She tells of torture chambers for nuns who were ‘non-compliant.’  She tells of initiation rites where nuns-in-training had to lie in a coffin for nine hours, dying to the world as they once knew it.  She tells of nuns coming from well-to-do families signing over their inheritances to the R.C. church after taking a vow of poverty.

You can read all about it here:  http://www.jesus-is-lord.com/charlot1.htm.

And while it would be easy for us ‘Protestants’ to point fingers at the R.C. church regarding these things, the fact of the matter is that we simply cannot.  We can’t because now the Protestant church is just as guilty for the exact same things!  I promise you, if you google the words ‘minister,’ ‘sex,’ ‘scandal,’ or ‘money,’ you can read a few stories about Preachers Gone Wild.

Why am I writing about this?

The Protestant church modeled itself after the Roman Catholic order many, many years ago.  And look what is happening within the walls of the institutionalized church.  Every seed produces after its own kind:  if you borne something out of a corrupt seed, the fruit thereof will ALSO be corrupt.

We should not act surprised or try to justify corruption when it is found in an ANY institutionalized church.  The discovery is to wake US up to the true condition of what we all at one time or another thought was ‘the church.’

WE ARE THE CHURCH!

We cannot attend a church because WE are the TEMPLES of the Holy Ghost.  We are carriers of the anointing, of the glory of God.  It is a gross misonomer to delegate the church as being merely a physical structure.  When we do so, we are desecrating the very thing that Christ TRULY died for…HIS BRIDE.

Once we recognize that, then we will be able to do what HE SET OUT for HIS BRIDE to do in the earth realm today!

In the words of Sister Charlotte herself, God will ‘… make a way for you to come out…’ of the convent (the church system).

The Art of Preaching – Truth or Hype?

By Pamela Sheppard

The first sermon that I preached was on 10- 25, 1981. Ironically, the last sermon I preached was also on October 25th, in 2007. I have spoken or uttered since then, but not by taking a text out of its natural context and producing a message from it.

 I estimate that I have preached at least 2000 sermons, perhaps more in 26 years. The title of my last sermon wasWhat Do YOU Have To Burn?” Later that  same week, God revealed to me that what I had to burn was the curious art called “preaching” because He revealed that  “sermons are manmade and demonically produced and  manipulated.

I truly loved to preach. I preached as many as two sermons a week  behind the pulpit for more than 25 years, sometimes more, during revival week and other special occasions. However, once God revealed to me that He no longer empowers the man made art called homiletics, I have not prepared yet  another sermon. Nor is there any desire left in me to preach a sermon, where a text is taken out of its natural context, and a man made or even a demonic message is worked up from that text.  So you might say that “I burned sermonizing  out of my ministerial life.”

On a natural level, the characteristics of “preaching” vary considerably according to style, church affiliation, seminary training, and othervariables. Generally, texts of scripture are taken out of their biblical context and are then mixed with what isgoing on in the preacher’s own heart, mind and personal circumstances. He or she often attempts to adapt the discourse to the wants and needs of thecongregation with the use of illustrations, stories, riddles, etc. As homiletics, the art of preaching—the artistic aspects include the degree of eloquence or earthiness,flamboyance, tone and quality of the voice,showmanship, “keepin it real,” the use of images,persuasiveness, an ability to “set it off” wherein the congregation becomes emotional.

Preachers if todat use texts from the bible as props to tell “a different story” other than the cross, the resurrection and the return of the Lord, which is “preaching the gospel.”

Some sermons are boring, outdated, irrelevant while others are highly charged, compelling, and “up to date.”Some of the most outstanding “sermonizers” that I have known personally were “down right characters”to put it mildly. The best performers remain closet homosexuals, and in some instances, drug addicts,adulterers, child molesters and thieves. What keeps them in the pulpit is the fact that the people love their performances. I can think of one man in particular, Rev. Kealon,  who at the end of each sermon, leaped out of the pulpit like a wild lion. In mid air, he appeared to be in suspended animation—5 ft above the ground. Within his depiction of the “art,” he could leap a slam dunk yet he died at the age of 33 of a massive stroke. A likeable guy, this man was quite “the pistol” on a moral level. He was brain dead on a Sunday morning in October,1987.

In fact, I was always around lots of preachers. The best preachers were closet, on the down low, homosexuals.  Several services a year for 25 years, I was one of 10 even 20 ministers sitting in the pulpit area at numerous regional worship services. When I was selected as “the preacher of the hour,”various congregants facing the pulpit would inform me at the close of the service that the ministers who sat behind me either had looks of displeasure on their faces, or that they were cupping their hands around their mouths, whispering to each other while I was delivering the message. This too “made me uncomfortable.”

Yet, I became increasingly “uncomfortable” with the method itself because I could see no fruit of a Christward direction in the people, some of whom had been listening to my sermons for 5, 10, even 20 years. So I changed my style once more. No longer sitting at a distance from the congregation, I sat among the people and put the responsibility for the preparation of the sermon on them. I let them ask ME questions and I prepared my sermon from those questions, right on the spot.

Yet, I was still “uncomfortable.”On a spiritual level, I discovered that something quite sinister has been goin on. I found out personally when it happened to me on June 25, 2007, my last day inside of a church building. I write about it in both “the Fake Jesus”  “Come Out of Her, God’sPeople” and “the New Idolatry.” I suggest you get one of the books because it would take too long to explain at this juncture. I will simply say that “a power came over me and it was not God.” The preacher in question had been an associate for about 10 years  and he didn’t even know that I was in the congregation because I slipped in un-noticed and sat way in the back. However, a religious demon used him to try and make me rejoin a church that the Lord had led me out of.  I felt invisible hands in my back that pushed me forward at the invitation.  So if you want to know more, I suggest you obtain either book by clicking here.

What I can reveal now is this. There is a time in most delivery of sermons when the preacher gets “caught up” in the art of preaching, enters into an altered state of consciousness, and the enemy “walks in” to him or her and uses the preacher to “work the crowd.” On such occasions, Jesus is just an “add on” at the end when the preacher says “the doors of the church are opened “and the choir begins to sing, “Come to Jesus.”

Some people rise from the pew or their seat and walk forward, yet it is not the Holy Ghost who has moved upon them to do so. How could it be He? Little to none of the gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth has been preached. We are saved by the word but no “word” was actually preached. So then, what happens to these people? Well, those who themselves have entered an altered state of consciousness while they got “caught up” by a sermon are in real danger of being demonized. I am finding that demons MUST be cast out of them before the Holy Ghost will draw them to the cross to be saved.

How To Properly Discern a Religious Spirit?

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.
