What we have been running into is that there are many people out there who need DELIVERANCE FROM DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES—– FOR THERE IS MUCH “QUACKERY AND NONSENSE” GOING ON. Uninformed deliverance workers may be the root cause of the severity of your present bondage and/or torment. It is a sin and a shame!!! Deliverance from deliverance is what you need.
The purpose of ministering deliverance is to set free those who are in bondage. As Jesus was sent forth to preach deliverance to the captives (Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to… preach deliverance to the captives…”), so we are also sent out (John 20:21, “Then said Jesus to them… as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”) to do the works He did (John 14:12, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also…”), and this includes casting out of devils (Matthew 10:8).
The ministry of deliverance is about bringing spiritual victory and freedom to those who are in bondage to devils and demons. It doesn’t matter what you call it (demonized, possessed, oppressed, etc.), if you are in demonic bondage, whether you need to tear down a stronghold, break up a legal ground, cast a demon out, or all three… it’s still deliverance, because it’s setting the captives free. There are 5 important elements of this ministry. I train my deliverance coaches to be knowledgeable of all 5 elements so that they are prepared to address them without hesitation:
Casting Down Imaginations by Receiving Truth: Setting captives free is more about getting them to receive the truth than it is about commanding demons to come out. This is a grave mistake that causes a lot of people to walk away from a deliverance still in bondage. There is more to it than simply casting out demons. In Luke 9:42, we are told a story of how Jesus not only rebuked demons in a boy who was mentally affected by evil spirits, but also is said to have healed the boy. There is no mention of the boy needing physical healing, but if you look up the word healed in this passage, one of the meanings is, “to free from errors and sins…”, which is likely what Jesus did with the boy, Jesus removed the boy’s legal grounds (sins) and freed him from errors (strongholds). This case of deliverance required more than just rebuking demons!
Tearing down strongholds: Strongholds are people, places and things that have obtained control in your life, one way or the other and are often set up and nurtured by demons through lies and deception. For example, if you were raped or had a frightening, unexpected car accident, a stronghold of fear was established IN you by a demon. Demons thrive on strongholds, and use them to hang around a person and torment them. Failing to tear down strongholds can hold up a deliverance and prevent us from walking in complete spiritual freedom.
Removing legal rights: Legal rights are things that give demons permission to enter and remain in our lives. Before demons can often be cast out, it is important to address and remove these legal rights. Failing to remove legal rights can hold up a deliverance very easily. Demons receive legal rights not so much because of what other’s have done but because of what YOU ignorantly did to invite them in. You need to understand HOW you invited them in BEFORE an entity is confronted, or the demon will trick you into inviting him back!
Closing Demonic Doorways: Demons enter the soul through 7 doorways or gateways. We determine through a process of inquiry, which doorway is open: the crown, the third eye, the throat, the heart, the navel, the sex organs or the anus. We also determine what demons need to be cast out.
Casting out the demons: This requires two basic elements: knowledge of your authority in Christ Jesus over the powers of the enemy, and faith in that authority. Demons are cast out with a simple spoken command, such as, “I command the spirit of fear to come out in the name of Jesus!” We ask those we work with to complete a deliverance questionnaire called the DAF, Deliverance Assessment Form that will give us an overview of their background, the bondages they are facing, the root or source of their problem, as well as legal grounds, strongholds and any particular spirits that need to be addressed. Then we begin to work with them to break up any legal grounds, and tear down any strongholds together we see in your life and of course, cast out any demons that need to go. If it takes more than 15 minutes, which includes the prayer, to cast out a demon, either there is no demon there or the preliminary work was not completely done. If you have rolled around the floor in a deliverance session for hours or days, all you did was pick up MORE demons.
There are also times when even the most talented people do not know how to move beyond certain obstacles on their own. Coping skills can become overwhelmed and faith can be weakened. This happens to all of us at some point in our spiritual walk. Yet it takes a special kind of courage for you to seek help now. You don’t have to wait another minute to receive the help you deserve! For years, I provided face-to-face therapy sessions within my own community. However, I must say that the convenience and availability of phone counseling and deliverance mentoring is convenient for me also in numerous ways.. Since December 2002, I have offered online counseling and therapy by phone and have been astounded at the results clients have achieved. You too can be a true believer in the benefits of phone counseling and mentoring sessions.
Phone counseling, coaching, training or mentoring are each available to help you with your problem and there are many other benefits to consider as well. So—

Here are some practical ways to start the process of ridding yourself of demonic captivity by casting down imaginations and every high thing that would exalt itself above the knowledge of Christ and bringing every thought into obedience to Him:
Prison bars and walls in the spirit are a lot stronger and several times more sophisticated than they were in the days of Paul and Silas. In this present complicated age of the 21st century, what we do at Sheppard Counseling Center is investigate, observe and interpret our findings. The purpose of investigation is to unravel confusion and to unfold the mystery by searching for repetitive themes. Through concentrated and intelligent inquiry, we gather the clues as to the hidden reason behind your captivity. Demons do their damage by invitation. We need to find out how you made the invitation to them, and what you must do to rescind it. We also use our knowledge of personality disorders to ascertain the various strategies that your particular personality type will employ to resist your own freedom. We do not waste time on people who use all of their energies to hide crucial things from us or those who become hostile because they are threatened by any real discovery.
We offered you in this post some sound advice on how to begin the process of self deliverance. If you need our help, call us at 518-477-5759. The lines are open.

To answer that question, ARE THERE ANY PROPHETS TODAY– one of the signs that we are living in the last days is the emergence of various internet watchmen. The prophets of old were watchmen. They warned God’s people about “what’s goin on” in the religious world. Some–not all–of these websites are inspired by present day prophets.
Their tools are different. All prophets SPEAK because they are compelled by God to do so. Today, the watchman’s voice is heard predominately through the written word, while others may speak out in a video. Some emphasize informing the people about specific false prophets and ministries. That is an exhaustive task that requires a 24/7 devotion, because there are so many false prophets and ministries to expose. Since these prophetic web ministrues only target high profile people and their false practices, they are hindered by not covering other ministries that are equally noteworthy but only known locally.
Much falls between the cracks.
I used to be a watchman on the web exposing false prophets with a website that I have since closed down called “Beware Christian”. I had to literally DROP IT, because it devoured too much of my time and I found it counterproductive FOR ME as an author, a counselor and a trainer of ministers. Nevertheless, I thank God for prophetic, watchman type ministeries of Midnight Cry, Straight is the Way, Deception in the Church,Equip, Paw Creek and others. I now refer seekers to them and I do “another thing.”
To really answer the question in the title, we need to look at the new testament. The prophet that stands out in the gospel days of the Lord’s own ministry is John the Baptist. The Lord said that John the Baptist is the greatest of ALL prophets, so we need to look at John’s ministry rather closely. John’s prophetic ministry was essentially that he prepared the people of his day for the FIRST coming of the Lord by preaching repentance. John the Baptist did not have the gift of perdicting the future as did the Apostle John. It should be noted that when Jesus called John the Baptist the greatest prophet, the Apostle John was not yet so anointed as a prophet.
However, together, I believe that BOTH Johns are a composite template of a present day prophet. A present day prophet is one who:
Spiritual discernment will be essential to distingush between a false and a true prophet for both shall have supernatural powers.

Your spiritual life is like a journey. You are on the broad road, and SEW Mentoring will lead you to the narrow way. As you journey through the valleys to find your mountaintops, our trained ministers are with you as a “travel guide” so to speak. You have become accustomed to travelling alone, and perhaps with out even a map. You have been walking for a long time and your bondage may have brought you to a crossroad.
The first stage of basic Christian mentoring is geared toward helping you make your own decisions about how much truth you are willing to receive to obtain freedom. The more you resist truth, the longer you will journey on the broad way, that leads to destruction.
THEOBJECTIVES OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING
We have found that most Christians who need deliverance mentoring are blinded by spiritual ignorance. Our goal at SEW is to help you obtain clear spiritual vision as we coach and train you to distinguish between good and evil.
The goal of basic Christian mentoring is to help you to be engaged, encouraged and enlightened in your mind. As such, our objective at is to strengthen your spirit so that you will be able to recognize God’s will and choose it above your own.
However, the goal of deliverance mentoring is to arm you to recognize and effectively deal with the activity of the enemy in your life. Deliverance mentoring is broken down into 4 components:
A SEARCH FOR COSMIC EVIL DOORWAYS: These are areas in a person’s life which are giving or have given cosmic entities the right to enter or remain in the person. Asking Jesus to “come into your heart, a counterfeit birth, a background in the occult, unconfessed sins, ungodly soul ties, unforgiveness, holding cursed possessions (occult rings, etc.) and so forth can give demons a right to inhabit and torment a person. These legal grounds can be removed by facing the truth, repentance, renunciation, extending forgiveness, etc.
THE EXAMINATION OF STRONGHOLDS: These are basically incorrect thinking patterns in your mind. For example, if you think God is angry with you because you have committed the unpardonable sin, then you will feel like He is. This stronghold may open you to panic attacks, paranoia or obsessive compulsive behavior. Strongholds are torn down in each mentoring session as a trained minister and mentee work together to reprogram your mind to think differently. You might say that the SEW approach to a stronghold is to enhance critical thinking capabilities and simple commonsense. Together the mentor and the mentee destroy the strength of the debilitating thought.
RESTORATION OF YOUR SOUL: Renewal is often required when counseling a person who has been abused, raped or has been exposed to a traumatic experience. Becoming whole is a work of the Holy Spirit and is received as a captive is delivered from the inner hurt and pain from past experiences. Then the Holy Spirit comes in and heal those wounds. Forgiveness often plays a part in this releasing process. Oftentimes, self-forgiveness needs to be received as the captive may be holding things against him or herself which must be released. Once truth is known and accepted, frrdom is obtained.
EXPULSION OF THE ENEMY Confronting cosmic entities directly is where either devils or demons are driven out of the client by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of the Holy Ghost. After success in the first three stages, expulsion is often un-necessary. However, in various cases, direct confrontation of the powers of darkness cannot be avoided. At this stage, the client MUST sign and notarize an informed consent form called the DDF, the Deliverance Disclaimer Form. There are no exceptions.
Dedicated Ministers who themselves were captives have been trained to conduct mentoring sessions. Visit our page called SEW Ministers to read a brief bio of 7 of them. I recommend that you give SEW mentor a one month trial and you will not be sorry. www.pamsheppard.com/online_ministers_available
The words of the old prophet Hosea ring true. The Lord’s people are definitely destroyed fora lack of knowledge. With deliverance counseling, demons will often leave on its own accord once they realize that through deliverance counseling, you have been armed with spiritual truth. They leave because they sense that your faith has increased to stand against them. In other cases, demons have been hidden within a person’s personality for so long, that the Holy Spirit will set up a situation so that the demons will be exposed and come out of hiding.
At Sheppard’s Counseling Center, we have been contacted by people from around the country who have sought us to conduct a deliverance. We have cast out demons from someone on another continent by telephone. What you need to know is that Jesus Christ IS RISEN FROM THE DEAD!For example, He stood with one foot in Australia and One foot in our little town in the USA! He is bigger than life. He IS life!!! His Name is Above Every Name.
The demons not only bowed but they came out peaceably without much struggle and the captive has been gloriously set free!!
If you as a steadfast believer do ALL the work that shall be assigned to you, if you bite the bullet and withstand the test by fighting your feelings, learning how to cope with a straightfoward style, believe me—NO ONE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WILL HAVE TO TRAVEL TO NEW YORK FOR A DELIVERANCE SESSION, BECAUSE JESUS IS LORD OVER THE TELEPHONE!!!!! YOU TOO CAN BE COMPLETELY SET FREE!!!!
PRE AND POST DELIVERANCE MENTORING
Coaching and training before and after deliverance is extremely important. Both of these forms of counseling will be conducted by a combination of private fb groups, Skype, email and telephone. Be advised that we will not conduct a deliverance upon anyone without a commitment to pre-deliverance MENTORING. Post deliverance MENTORING is highly recommended to maintain a lasting and continued freedom.
You may need deliverance if the following applies to YOU:
You have been held captive and brought under the power of spiritual entities that have caused you to lose your God given self control. Even when drug free and not physically addicted, a captive is controlled by an obsessive and compulsive mind that will relive his
addictive/compulsive behavior in his thoughts, keeping alive the experience with the help of memory cells in his body that create physical and mental cravings. Satan and his demons are the unseen forces that send messages to an unsuspecting mind.
You have assumed that your thoughts and feelings are your own but they are not.The enemy has been projecting thoughts into your mind. You may have experienced powerful urges in your flesh. Demons choose the weakest time and place to attack, and since your impulsive and compulsive behavior is predictable, it is a simple matter for demons to attract, lure and trap a person into addictive/obsessive/compulsive behavior.
The following moments, circumstances and or places of weakness may have acted as doorways to demonic influence that led to your captivity and/or a need for deliverance:
|A family and or personal
background in the occult or false religions.
|False religions include those
that are assumed to be Christian.
|These so called Christian
religions include Catholicism, Jehovah Witness, Christian Science and the Latter
Day Saints. (Mormons)
|Family or personal involvement
with the occult or any form of witchcraft.
|The occult also includes a
family or personal background in freemasonry.
|Pressures in early childhood,
including but not limited to physical or sexual abuse.
|Other negative family issues
include rejection and sibling rivalrry.
|Sinful Acts or Habits, including
but not limited to the breaking of the 10 Commandments.
|Addictions of all kinds.|
|You said the sinner’s prayer and asked “Jesus” to come into your heart.Therefore, you have a false conversion which I call “a counterfeit birth.”|
Deliverance is not just about casting out demons. It is learning how you opened the demonic doorway and how to keep it closed. Help is available around the world by phone. www.pamsheppard.com/online_ministers_available Interested in deliverance training? Visit www.pamsheppard.com/sign_up_now
