A word from Coach Pam Sheppard
Religious folk go around hollerin “the devil is a liar,” yet the minute he tells them somethin, they believe it. LOL
I think of one guy I once worked with. I cast demons from him on the phone and he was set completely free, immediately. He was also very active in RESCUE. Two weeks later, he committed an act that drew practically all demons back. Well Don sought me again to expel demons from him.
Deliverance is not a game and I am not a game show host. He would have to commit to counseling before I would speak to his demons ever again.
Don did so and for a while, things looked hopeful until after his last session with me, Don, a mega preacher wannabe, did not like me. The demons saw their chance, capitalizing on Don’s personal conflict with me.
So a demon told him,” Pam is a witch.”
The next morning, Don reported that he could hear my voice in his head, cussin him out, a thing I was once known to do quite well—back in the day.” So this particular evil spirit has been watching me for decades, knowing how I used to “get down.”
Here is where I stand on this.
Anybody who comes to me with such a report, I listen to them quite intently. For should I discern even an inkling that he or she believes the demons over me, then I am DONE with him or her on ALL levels.
Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. So a spirit will tell you that your friend or your neighbor is a witch or a wizard. And it may be true. But they want to make sure you know it so they can put fear in you of that person. Then the demons will use your self-induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring THEIR plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy.
You see, they can’t “do what they do,” without your cooperation and consent.
In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits.
About five years ago, someone sent me a message. She had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me and that they were attempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold her. Wouldn’t make any sense because the damage had already done. The goal is to project fear into their target by making sure they hear that someone is practicing witchcraft on them. At that very moment, I was involved in an antagonistic 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. That was five years ago and nothing has transpired.
The thing to do is to “watch and pray.” Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Also, you would-be prophets, don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone who you care about. Pray and rest in God. If God showed her that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling her 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.”
