Religious demon is not a new fangled term. Well known Christian authors like Derek Prince and Rick Joyner have used this term initially. But Pam Sheppard has taken their teachings to a higher more advanced level. She has done extensive research, and exposes exactly who, and what a religious demon is. In her ground breaking book, ” Faces of the Religious Demon” she ushers us into a full scale describtion of the scope and funtion of religious demons in the organized church.
Unfortunately, the church as a whole, shuns the fact that demons exist and operate today. This is grave errror! In fact, as Pam relates, religious demons have entered into the church. Well meaning deliverance ministers, are limited in knowledge. At best they may be able to cast out demons, but are too often unskilled at accomplishing total deliverance for captives. Demons often return to victims with a vengeance. The word of God refers to this, for we know that when a house is swept clean, demons can, and will find another door of entry.
I now offer you an excerpt from Pam’s groundbreaking text, ” Faces of the Religious Demon “…
Pam Sheppard writes:
The first time I personally heard the term ” religious spirit ” or ” religious demon ” was in a prophecy I received in 1983. In this word, I was given a spiritual warfare assigment against 7 high ranking fallen angels that I began to refer to as ” The Seven Walls”, with the religious devil as wall number 5 in the list: alchohol and drugs, homosexuality, prostitution, witchcraft, the religious spirit, prejudice and poverty. To walk in darkness is to give the religious demon an unholy advantage where he will enter into both spiritual and man made temples, and through a blasphemous masquerade, attempt to exalt himself above God. When the demon is able to enter into a Christian temple of either flesh or brick and subsequently obtain worship for itself through fraudulence and deceit, this is truly an abomination of desolation (Daniel 11:36).
My dear readers you ought to get a copy of Pam’s book. I can attest to what Pam is describing. Why? Because I have read the whole book , and can now understand much of what she expounds on regarding the religious demon. A religious demon will display some of the following traits:
A. Unknown tongues with no translation
B. Religiosity and odd extremes
C. Slain in the spirit which is unscriptural
D. Divination under the guise of prophecy
E. Repetiton of the abominable sinners prayers. i.e ” I accept Jesus ” or ” Jesus come into my heart “
As you can see, a religious demon is an abominable desolation indeed, and displays a carnal, fleshly worship that has nothing to do with God or Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
