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).

Are you a minister conducting services and people are getting slain in the Spirit?  Do you need to step back and do self examination to find out if you’re in the will of God or not?  Get a copy of ‘The Makings of a False Prophet’ today!

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.’

DECEPTION: SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT

The masses are being deceived by satan using his lies of being “slain in the spirit”.

Looking back over 30 years of ministry, I remember How I lusted after the power to manifest the slain in the spirit phenomena for about 10 years. When I finally obtained the power, I thought it would put my ministry on the map to mega-stardom. Yet, I began to  watch and pray over those in my congregation who consistently fell slain. What I noticed is that most of the people who fell, were not able to STAND in their faith or for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of them were filled with sin. Once the Lord started sending me professing Christians who were in demonic torment, I soon discovered a significant sample of cases wherein people actually picked up demons in church services similar to those in this video clip.

Hear is a quote from the New Idolatry.

Christians have fallen under the power since the 1760’s. It was a common expression among the Shakers and also one of the signs of the ministry of Marie Woodward-Etter (1844-1924) KNOWN AS “THE TRANCE EVANGELIST.” About 15 years before the Azusa Street Revival that started the Pentecostal Church, Etter began manifesting the phenomena in her meetings in 1885.”

Asking Jesus to Come Into Your Heart Produces a False Conversion

Asking Jesus to Come Into Your Heart Produces a False Conversion
By Pam Sheppard

The Angel Over Your Church has been REMOVED because of the I ACCEPT JESUS practice.

I coined the term “counterfeit births” because I have seen so many false conversions. My book, “The Religious Demon” provides profiles of about 75% of the cases. I’ve yet to write a second edition.

A significant part of the “I accept Jesus” practice is to ask Jesus to “come into my heart.” 

Anyone who knows even a little about kundalini yoga and the 7 chakras are aware of the fact that every human being has 7 spiritual gateways or doorways in his body. Through entering a state of passivity, yoga, meditation, hypnosis, chanting, even speaking in tongues will create an altered state of consciousness (ASC) conducive enough  to  crack open  the spiritual doorway, one by one. I would include falling slain in the spirit, holy laughter, speaking in tongues, the holy dance, shouting, running around the church, flopping one’s head back and forth, as additional practices that stir up the kundalini spirit and open the 7 doorways.

Chakras are actually doorways for Hindu gods who themselves are really principalities and powers.  Each of these entities stand guard over each of the 7 portals: Over the crown is Shiva; the third eye is Hakini, the throat is Savashiva, the navel is Bahni, the sexual organs are Vishnu and Rakeeni, the anus is Brahma and the heart is Isha.

Since no where in the bible does it even suggest that we should “ask Jesus into our hearts,” the fallen angel Isha responds to the unsuspecting seekers “invitation” as a call to the fake Jesus Sananda who Isha serves.  So Isha opens the doorway to the heart and religious demons are able to enter and take up residence.

How do I know this to be so?

Well, since 2002, I have been practicing deliverance counseling with professing Christians who had a false conversion by “asking Jesus to come into their hears.” Without exception, they were all demonized at various levels along a spectrum.  Some simply cannot experience the godly sorrow of repentance,  some just have no faith concerning the Lord’s resurrection, some are compulsive and legalistic without baring any genuine fruit for Christ, while much more debilitating captives  are severely tormented with hearing condemning voices,  materialized manifestations of demons, depersonalization, insomnia,  frequent bouts of sleep paralysis, blasphemous thoughts, suicidal thoughts,  demons using their bodies to speak and move objects,  even spontaneous orgasms of demonic origin.

What do they ALL have in common? They either repeated a sinner’s prayer at the conclusion of a TV or radio program, from a printed tract, or they got up out of their seats and walked forward at the invitation and “accepted Jesus.” Most of these captives were tongue talkers but not all.  Some of them came from the mainline denominational churches as well as from the word of faith, pentecostal-charismatics.  Those who chanted “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” at a pentecostal altar are in the worst shape, also those who actively received hands laid on them in charismatic churches and by deliverance ministries.  Those who sought deliverance from more than one ministry are usually in the worst shape.

What is the solution? As an invitation was made to Sananda by the person’s free will, the freewill of the person must be built up by first, a deprogramming of error, second, a reversal of passivity, third, the receiving of truth, and finally, a disavowal of the invitation and a rejection of Sananda. In most cases, the religious demons who entered into the heart gateway  by the authority of Isha must be cast out.
