BELIEVERS AND PROPHECY

Written by Gloria

Isaiah 46:9-11
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:11 calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

Amos 3:7
Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets

Prophecy is important in our lives as believers, from Old Testament saints like Joseph who learned about the famine before it happened, to Abram who God gave a new name Abraham meaning the father of many nations before Isaac or Ishmael was born. Prophet Isaiah wrote about Jesus and one of David’s Psalm foreshadowed the born again experience when he wrote ‘create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me’. There are many other examples that show that our God is a God of prophecy

The Enemy & Counterfeit Prophecies 

Many Christians go through experiences where pastors give them a prophetic word about their finances, current or potential spouses, children, etc. These prophecies are mainly about God prospering the believer with worldly possessions. The problem with these prophecies is that they are fleshly and appeal to our human desires. Prophecies like this make us the center and shows as if God is in servitude to humans. God is not at our beck and call and any teaching that says God is out to fulfill our desires is a false teaching.

There are those interpreting end time prophecies on various social media platforms but then tell viewers to make a choice for God. In doing so, they mix a truth with a lie and lead people to more bondage. Most of them probably don’t even know they are wrong. I personally was led into accepting Jesus through the sinner’s prayer after watching a “prophetic” end-time movie. The sinner’s prayer gave demons legal right in my life which led to a decade of deception and torment until I was delivered by learning the truth.

Confusion surrounding prophecies – have they occurred or not?  The preterist view states that certain scriptures were fulfilled a long time ago, and futurism interprets the same scripture stating that it will happen in the future. Both views were created with the intention to throw off believers in the middle ages from interpreting scripture surrounding the anti-Christ.

There is also a practice many do called bibliomancy – where one take scriptures or reads a bible character’s story and prophecy the same for themselves. Scriptures need to be read in context meaning you have to determine who the audience is and whether the topic addressed relates to you. A bible character’s story is not to be used to justify personal mistakes, a good example is many who are caught in adultery, are always quick to mention David and speak on how he was still God’s chosen. David’s adultery doesn’t give anyone else the license to engage in promiscuity or adultery. The same people who want to use David’s story show how they cherry pick verses to their liking because the same David suffered for the sin he committed. Just because God said he was a man after his own heart did not make him immune from the consequences of his sin.

THE RESULTS

End time prophecies have been used to create fear; people don’t like to touch the subject as they find it too complex. This leaves many vulnerable to false prophecies which they are unable to test and discern its source and motive.

Many are confused as to what they should be looking for due to so many views and mostly importantly many are being led to deception by saying the sinner’s prayer which opens them up to be demonized.

Distraction – if a prophecy can have you looking in the wrong direction you are pretty much a sitting duck for the enemy e.g. if you get a prophecy that you will be married in a year or so, chances are you will marry someone who shows up in that time-frame who is completely wrong for you.

Apathy – people have grown increasingly weary of hearing that Jesus is coming back as they have heard many prophecies giving the specific date of his return only for it not to happen. What’s even more tragic is that because of this alot of people are mocking what is actually going to happen to their own demise.

The purpose of prophecy is for God to reveal his plans before they unfold. Another reason is stated clearly in 1 Corinthians 14:3
“But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.”

Prophecy is important in a believer’s life and should not be used to promote fear but to forewarn, strengthen, encourage and comfort.

Believers should handle prophecy by testing all things, if it contradicts the scripture then don’t follow it.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.

More on Worshipping the FAKE JESUS

Writer: Tee

People who worship the Fake Jesus (Jesus Sananda Immanuel), MOST OF WHOM ARE MOST CHURCHGOING FOLKS WHO CLAIM TO BE SAVED, are by far, the MOST DIFFICULT to reach. Why? Because he has them so fooled that they actually think that the Jesus they are serving is the true Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and NOBODY CAN TELL THEM DIFFERENT. With all of his trickery, they don’t realize that they are serving a religious counterfeit, and often become heavily offended when their salvation is challenged.

Sananda is so clever that he uses what works with people: miracles, signs, wonders, warm-fuzzy feelings, and a LACK OF FAITH IN THE TRUTH. He preys on a person’s desperation for seeing to believe, since he knows that they have no faith. Faith on the power of the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the most powerful weapon we have against the enemy. If he can steal your faith, he can win you over.

The more allegiance you have to Sananda, the more he can block you from seeing the truth, which can therefore block your salvation. When I had a false conversion, I did not make an invitation to Sananda. If I did, I would have been in demonic torment. I suppose that because of the fact that I never engaged in any practices that had me inviting Jesus into my heart, and therefore had no demons. So my salvation therefore was not blocked. It was easy for me to receive the truth, and I did not become offended when Pam challenged my salvation.

The more I heard Pam preach the gospel to me, the more I began to see it, and the more I wanted even more truth. My FAITH on the power of the cross and resurrection was being developed. Once I received that faith, the Holy Spirit was able to do His work!

Anyone who has said the sinners prayer, prayed Jesus into their heart, or somehow engaged in a practice that involved calling on Jesus or chanting for Jesus to come to them is at risk of being demonized. YOU DID NOT ENCOUNTER THE REAL JESUS CHRIST!!! Why you ask? Because Jesus Christ is not a spirit hovering around, waiting for us to beckon him. He is sitting at the right hand of the father in HUMAN FORM.

When Jesus Christ resurrected, he appeared before Mary Magdalene and other disciples to show them this very fact, so that they can see that he came back to life in his own body, and then ascended to heaven in that body. Yet this one very important aspect of the gospel is being watered down and dispelled all throughout the organized church!!!! Why? Because the enemy knows that people are so caught up in lusting after supernatural experiences that they will even ignore the very truth in order to get their supernatural fix. Think about it: how often do people go to church talking about “the presence,” and how much they want to “experience God?” FOR WHAT???? It’s all about THEM!!! It’s all about SELF-EDIFICATION. What in the world does that have to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ? NOTHING.

People lack faith in the power of God, so they lust after the supernatural in order to find a reason or a way to believe in his power…when the power that they are seeking after is actually the power of the devil…nothing different than what psychics and mediums do…just in a different environment.

Want to know more about this topic? You need to get the book, “The Fake Jesus” in your hands. It goes into details about who the Fake Jesus is, his methods & strategies, and examples of ways he is deceiving folks ALL OVER THE WORLD. You can find the book on http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/pam_s911

Understanding  the Abomination of Desolation: Has It Happened Already? 

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

Clearly it happened once in Jewish history as Daniel predicted that it would.  In the year 167 BC. A Greek ruler, by the name of Antiochus Epiphanies committed two blasphemous acts in the second Jewish temple: He set up an altar to the Greek god Zeus and also he sacrificed a pig on the altar.

The Lord knew of that particular abomination as it occurred some two hundred years BEFORE  His words were recorded in Matthew 24:15.  So clearly, the Lord was prophesying about an event that would transpire in the last days, since the end of the gentile age is the subject matter of Matthew 24.  It stands to reason that in a similar way that the Lord compared the last days  to the days of Noah, in like manner, He also highlighted  the prophecy of Daniel with the caviat of “let the reader understand.”

Now the general understanding of those who interpret endtime signs is that before this particular sign can be fulfilled, the Jews will need to build a new temple.  So we could further assume that the Antichrist will not be revealed until that non existent temple is built in Jerusalem.

But what if that is not the understanding the Lord wants the endtime age to have? 

Whatever the future abomination is, if it is an overt act of the desecration of a Jewish temple, the obvious nature of such an act would not need very much understanding or interpretation.

AT the time that the Lord was questioned about the end of the age and His response recorded by Matthew in the 24th chapter,  the church age had not yet begun but would be shortly ushered in by a few of the Lord’s apostles and disciples on the day of Pentecost. So clearly, it made no sense for the Lord not to reveal at that time how the church age would evolve 2000 years into the future to people who were about to bring forth the age of the church. For to know the end before the beginning would definitely have blocked the motivation of  the apostles and disciples to begin and continue the work of building the church. Rather, it’s the last generation of the elect who truly need “to understand.”

So my question is this.  Suppose the Lord was not referring to the abomination of desolation as a part of Jewish history, but in reality, perhaps He predicted Christian history in its last days?  The accepted understanding within a common endtime understanding is that the Antichrist will establish a covenant with Israel for 7 years and then perform some blasphemous, unspeakable abomination, similar to what Antiochus Ephiphanies did in the second Jewish temple, before it was destroyed in 70 AD.

Yet built into the new covenant, the temple of God is clearly the reborn human spirit.  There are several scriptures to support the belief that the spirit of man is the temple of The Lord, both in the Old Testament and more so in the new.  So what if the abomination of desolation has occurred and is still occurring in the temple or spirit within those who claim to be God’s people?

So consider this. Would it not be an abomination of desolation to go to a church altar, expecting to receive the Holy Ghost into your spirit but instead, you received a  religious demon aka the spirit of the antichrist?

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 each  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 Vahni, 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 seeker’s  “invitation” as a call to the fake Jesus Sananda who Isha serves. So Isha opens the doorway to the heart and  spirits of the antichrist enter the heart doorway and take up residence in one’s “temple.”
So could it not be that the abomination of desolation has already occurred and is still occurring?  The Lord said that if we ask God for bread, HE would not give us a snake or a stone.  Well, I know for a fact that people are asking God to come into their hearts as they surrender their beings to an entity they believe is Christ at the altars of God, when in reality, it’s a fallen angel impersonating the Lord. Could it be that because they are going about it the wrong way, evil spirits have entered their temples?

What could be more abominable or more desolate than THAT?

The Holy  Ghost will not enter a temple where a demon dwells. It must be cast out FIRST.  Only after the demons have left will He enter your spirit and cause you to be born again, becoming  a temple where God Himself dwells.

God could cast it out the spirit of the antichrist Himself.  Yet most often He uses one of His followers to do so. AT RESCUE,  WE can help with this.  Either give us a call at  1-888-818-1117 or email us at getreadyforthelord@gmail.com

The Fall From Grace of Mega Preachers: The People vs Joel Osteen

Written by Gloria

unnamed

Right on the heels of the Charlottesville riots, Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Rockport, Texas bringing with it death and the loss of property. One of the major headlines concerning this natural disaster had to do with Joel Osteen,  a prominent, mega-preacher in Texas who sent a tweet stating that he and his wife will pray for the those affected. The backlash started almost immediately on alot of social media platforms. Many tweets, memes, videos were posted where people were berating Joel and demanding more than “prayers” from him.

Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church are experiencing a PR nightmare, we have seen corporations that have bounced back from corporate gaffes and others destroyed from it. We are yet to see how this incident will affect Joel in the long-term. The Institutional Church herein referred to as the (I.C.) is part of the world system so it uses the tactics of the world to get by, the Spirit of God is not in any of their dealings.

There are those who have shown unwavering support for Joel  but what caught my interest is that there is a substantial amount of people as seen on social media who feel one thing for mega-preachers – ANGER. Gone are the days when people would shy away from speaking against a “man of God.” After Joel’s tweet, the comments came fast & furious making it seem like people were waiting for an incident to happen so they can let loose and tell Joel what they really feel.

There are people who are mad, fuming not just at Joel but at the I.C. and at mega-preachers. In some way it felt like there was nothing Joel could do to appease the critics, the arguments started with why didn’t he open the church early to he opened the church because of the social media pressure. Any interview Joel gave was dissected to show how his efforts weren’t genuine, even his body language was being analyzed to strengthen the claims that he didn’t want to be there helping people. Every thing he did was an offense.

Clearly, there are people who still love & support mega preachers but there is also another group that have become weary of mega-preachers and refuse to see any good in them. This group sees mega-preachers as scammers, Period! even acts of kindness are looked at suspiciously as many wait for the money grab to be revealed sooner or later.

I have belonged to both groups of people at different times in my life. I have blindly loved and supported mega-preachers and even defended them to critics, then as the years went by I became a critic as I noticed their teachings were pseudo-deep, they embraced the world and repeatedly taught the prosperity gospel. I left the church and would watch a lot of videos exposing ministries and false preachers we have today, which are plenty. The Irony is, in both states I thought I was walking in truth but the reality was I was still deceived. I had some partial truth in that I could see some of these leaders were false teachers but I still engaged in I.C. practices & believed I was born again because I had asked Jesus into my heart, I believed in a false gospel.

The major spiritual problem today is not the mega preacher phenomenon or false teachers – that is just a symptom of a bigger issue. If we spent time analyzing who is a false prophet and who isn’t we would be here for days as the list is endless. Time is really of the essence so what you need to see is that the entire I.C. is condemned and the Spirit of God is not there. For those who have left the I.C., if they still engaged in religious practices or hold on to church teachings, they could still be deceived.

Pastor Pam Sheppard addresses the Spiritual problem in our time in The Church of The End Time Zombies, an excerpt reads:-

Statistics show that floods of people are leaving the I.C. daily. The question is, where are they going? It could be that many of these folk are just joining up with yet another branch of the I.C. or doing the I.C. thing at home. Opening a church in your home by teaching the same false doctrines and practices, causes your home to be just as dangerous.”

The I.C. has been taken over by fallen angels and demons, nothing good can come out of it. The Lord Jesus already prophesied the future of the I.C. in the parable of the mustard seed.

As people who are preparing for the return of the Lord Jesus, we need to understand that holding on to partial truths is just as dangerous as believing a lie. It is good to know who is a false teacher, so you can avoid their traps, but spending time studying and exposing one preacher to the next is a tedious task as there are many.

The I.C isn’t under attack by being infiltrated by false teachers, it’s actually the I.C. that creates an environment for these preachers to grow and thrive. A word from Pastor Pam concerning mega-pastors in her own personal experience.

A word of caution. The religious demon assigned to me tried to set me up to become a false prophet.  In several dreams, he showed me standing before huge audiences, walking up and down across a platform with my bible in my hand, preaching and teaching.  He even showed me pastoring a church of about 10,000 people.  Because I sought after the power to slay in the spirit, after 10 years of seeking, I got it. I could wave my hand, and certain ones would fall out, unconscious.  However, I began to question this power because I noticed that the ones in my congregation who fell out the most, were also those who could not STAND for the Lord, relapsing or backsliding constantly.  So I said to myself, “Pam, there is something wrong with this so-called gift. This cannot be from the Holy Ghost!”  Once I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to “show me the darkness,” I got quite the wakeup call that revealed that the mega preacher phenomena of today is NOT of the Lord.  It is a combination of human charisma, “anointed” by the enemy’s power.”

Understand the times that we live in so you won’t be deceived with the spiritual blindness that’s all over, if you don’t know where to start, read “The Church of the End Time Zombies”, you can get a copy at:-

Charlottesville, Va: The Church And Racism

By Gloria

The recent event in Charlottesville, Virginia is one of the many examples that show we do not live in a post-racial society. Racism seems to be one of the many social ills that has continued throughout the centuries without a clear end in sight.

What happened?

A “Unite the right” rally was planned for Aug 12 in protest to removing the statue of Robert E Lee, a confederate icon. A day before on Aug 11, a march was held at the University of Virginia where the crowds chanted “white lives matter” & “blood & soil”.

The protesters showed up on Aug 12 and clashed with counter demonstrators. The rally turned deadly as a speeding car killed one person and injured 19. Trump held a press conference days later which left many stunned and drew a lot of criticism as he stated that both groups were to blame.

The Church’s Stand

What has been the response from the church leadership not only over the racial divide which seems to be deepening but also where is the support from the leader of the free world, President Donald Trump who clearly stated that there are many good people in neo-Nazis & white supremacist groups?

For the most part, the Institutional church herein referred to as the I.C. hasn’t raised a strong, united voice indicating where they stand on the issue. Consequently, the silence in itself is both telling and deafening by comparison,for when business advisers have publicly stepped away from Trump, by contrast, the Nation’s evangelical leaders have made no or little noise over the issue and they remain steadfast and committed to Trump.

As an example, here are some quotes from various church leaders:-

Robert Jeffries, one of Trumps advisors said this on his twitter account,
“Pray for peace in Charlottesville and across our nation,” and “Let there be no misunderstanding. Racism is sin. Period,”

Paula White on her twitter account wrote about the event mentioning that there is a need for renewal of grace and for God to help us.

Franklin Graham defended Trump on his Facebook page stating that the shame should be on politicians that want to blame Trump.

Joel Osteen on his Facebook page wrote that, “…When somebody doesn’t agree with us or not doing what we like, it’s easy to get in conflict with them, to argue, to try to straighten them out, to prove our point. No, you have to be the bigger person. Just because they’re doing wrong doesn’t mean you have to engage.” 

The bottom-line is that many mega church leaders haven’t said anything at all.

This mixed reaction where some leaders condemned what happened, others spoke vaguely and others have remained completely silent shows the lack of unity in the I.C.

We live in troubling times; it is not the time to panic! But it’s time to get your life in order and prepare yourself mentally, spiritually, emotionally & even learn several survival skills should any disaster happen. Leaders in the I.C. are not preparing their congregations to understand the times and many unsuspecting churchgoers will be caught off guard when the rapture they are waiting for doesn’t happen and they are faced with the tribulation.

This post is not to analyze the racial divide that is deep in America. It’s to simply shed light on the fact that the I.C. is unable to give proper guidance to their church goers and one of the reasons is due to the fact that she is divided.

Jesus predicted the division that would happen to the Institutional church. He did this using the parable of the mustard seed.

Matthew 13:31-32
31 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, 32 which indeed is the least of all the seeds; but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.”

In order to understand this parable, you have to look at the history of the church:-

The Seed -The church had very humble beginnings with the disciples who symbolize the mustard seed.

The huge tree – From 312 AD when Constantine issued the Edict of Milan, Roman practices were mixed with Christian beliefs leading to the creation of the Roman Catholic Church that grew far and wide, virtually unopposed for centuries.

Branches – The protestant reformation that opposed the many false doctrines of the Catholic church occurred in the 16th Century. The church split as many denominations were created.

Birds nest in its branches – demons infiltrated the churches, bringing false doctrines with them. (in Matthew 13:4- birds represents demons).

Clearly the Lord Jesus warned our present generation with this parable prophesied over 2000 years ago.

A clear and simple analysis is that the I.C. is infiltrated by demons and that is why she is weak. All she has is a form of godliness but no power. The early church with the apostles was relatively small but moved with great power but the Laodicean church of today is large but weak & lukewarm, unable to make any significant impact.Clearly, the Spirit of God is no longer in the I.C. The Lord warned you with the parable of the mustard seed. If you seek direction from her, you will be led into more confusion.

The Lord Jesus said on the other hand that HE will build his own Church and the gates of hell will not prevail. Matthew 16:18. He was not referring to the Institutional Church, but to all the believers throughout the centuries that have remained faithful to Him because he has kept them. From every generation, God always has HIS remnant who remain faithful to him.

If you want to understand why the I.C. is the way it is and get a clear understanding of who the Body of Christ is, get a copy of

False Prophets: There Are Many in These Times

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

92EAE0CE-F67A-4BAB-AAEF-3D8245C5C2AB

In ministry since 1981, I know a thing or two about false prophets. Besides the TV mega preachers that I watched for years, I also came to know at least 200 ministers while I was pastoring in a well-known denomination. So from my observations, I have designated 3 different types of false prophets. The deceived, the detoured and the diabolical.

There are those false prophets who are really saved but they followed the wrong leaders, and “sucked into themselves” mixed and false doctrines and practices. In short, they heeded and harkened unto the voice of seducing spirits and doctrines of the devil. However, they have not yet departed from the faith. These I call, “the Deceived.” Some of them will be set free. Because of pride, sad to say, others won’t be. Some false prophets would prefer to be caught up in a scandal than to admit that they taught error and thereby “led the people in the wrong direction, away from God, and not toward Him.” They are too spiritually proud to admit that they did not rightly divide the word of God.

Then there is the false prophet who was once used of God mightily, but he or she got deceived by the enemy and fell into disrepute. These I call “the Detoured.” This man or woman becomes a pretender—one who is very dangerous to those who are babes in Christ or who remain carnal Christians. Their followers “stand by their man” even when they should jump ship. The bible has a classic example of how the detoured “Old Prophet” deceived the man of God, resulting in the latter’s death. (I Kings 13)

Then of course, there is the out-and-out pretender who knows that he or she is serving the spirit of the Anti-Christ and everything they do is a masquerade. These I call “the Diabolical.” They are imposters, planted in among Christians to willfully bring confusion that will lead to destruction.

Every false prophet type— whether the Deceived, the Detoured, and the Diabolical— is equally dangerous. Why? Because they can leave a huge trail of victims.  I am humbled and thankful that although I was on the road to becoming a false prophet, the Holy Ghost jerked my chain, then cut it and broke it.  When  I was deceived by charismatic teachings,” God blessed me by closing doors and blocking me from spreading error. Even though I once had the heart, the skill and the desire of a mega preacher, God purposefully would not allow me to become a popular celebrity.. When a door opened, the Holy Ghost closed it and blocked my way through it. Moreover, among those that I have pastored, even though I personally believed some mixed doctrines, I didn’t teach them to those who allowed me to lead them. So praise God, after 36 years as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have no victims.

For example, I spoke in tongues, but I didn’t teach my followers to do so. I tithed, but I did not preach a “sow a seed,” prosperity gospel. In fact, I was completely self-sustaining. I gave back my church salary in the form of tithes and offerings to the churches that I pastored. When I practiced healing and the laying on of hands, I never told anyone to stop taking their medicine and “walk by faith.” I primarily preached the cross, sin, repentance, rebirth and the resurrection. But make NO MISTAKE. The false prophets of all 3 varieties:— the deceived, the detoured and the diabolical— are equally dangerous! Your prayers for them to repent may NOT prevail. And why not?

In order to repent, the false prophet has to do more than apologize and ask for forgiveness from those he has abused and deceived. If he has been made rich off of the backs of poor people by preaching the prosperity gospel, then God will require him or her to “give back” all of that money to the poor. Not too many false prophets are willing to give up those jet planes, million dollar homes and those Bentleys. Even the false prophets who are NOT mega, many of them have practiced the lie for so long, that it is practically impossible to receive the truth and act on it. Far too many have made “ministry” their career and not their calling.

Ask the Apostle Paul. He maintained as a tent maker. He would not allow any of the churches that he set up to totally provide his livelihood. That is why he could write, “whether abased or exalted, I can do ALL things 4 through Christ who strengthens me.” In other words, JUST SO YOU KNOW, I am not dependent upon YOU to live and to serve my God. When a false prophet’s livelihood is intricately tied to church dollars and resources, he or she is captive to a self-made trap that cannot be escaped from without God’s help. Actually, some false prophets have to be stripped naked to find God again, if they ever knew Him. So if you really think a particular false prophet is deceived, perhaps detoured but not diabolical, then your prayer should be “Lord, strip him.”

A word of caution. The religious demon assigned to me tried to set me up to become  a false prophet.  In several dreams, he showed me standing before huge audiences, walking up and down across a platform with my bible in my hand, preaching and teaching.  He even showed me pastoring a church of about 10,000 people.  Because I sought after the power to slay in the spirit, after 10 years of seeking, I got it. I could wave my hand, and certain ones would fall out, unconscious.  However, I began to question this power because I noticed that the ones in my congregation who fell out the most, were also those who could not STAND for the Lord, relapsing or backsliding constantly.  So I said to myself, “Pam, there is something wrong with this so-called gift. This cannot be from the Holy Ghost!” Once I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to “show me  the darkness,” I got quite the wake-up call that revealed that  the mega preacher phenomena of today is NOT of the Lord.  It is a combination of human charisma, “anointed” by the enemy’s power. My testimony is in “Come Out of Her God’s People.”

To Be Born Again, Wait on God’s Call!

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

 I have examined my salvation at least three times according to II Corinthians 5:13, seriously examined it, because it was so supernatural. And the reason my salvation is my only personal possession is because I never accepted Jesus into my heart. I never sought Him. In fact, I did not believe that He actually was a literal human being that lived on Earth. I thought He was a myth, made up by the white man to keep my black  people enslaved with all of His meekness and turn the other cheek behavior, which was not my  personality at all. I was not afraid of hell because I did not believe in hell either. I confess that I was both proud and adamant in my position as an atheist. 

So what I received was a call.

 The problem is that religious folk have “accepted”  Jesus before they heard His call. The call is not about going into ministry. The call is when God is reaching out to you to tell you, “I saved you before I created the foundations of the earth. I knew you when you were in your mother’s womb. Oh atheist Pam, you were an atheist for 33 years, but I knew you, and I called you.” And when you get a call, you get that call on a specific day and time. Now He may have been drawing you for years, and He definitely has sent angels to stand by and protect you to keep the devil from killing you before you heard the call. my day and time was Monday, March 29, 1977 at 4 pm. 

Everybody who is born again who is saved by God hears a call. And where does that call take you? It takes you to the cross. That’s where you gotta go. You gotta go to the cross. And you may not know then the victory of the Lord’s blood, the power of His blood to ruin all the enemy’s plans that he has for you, the power of that blood to keep you. That’s the meaning of baptism, you have been baptized into His death, into His cross and raised out of that water into His resurrection. Lord have mercy. The call will also take you to His resurrection.  The Holy Spirit will give you faith to believe that a dead man got up in the body He died in, and walked out of His grave alive, never to die again. 

It’s a call! So, those who want to argue with me on this subject, who want to say “well what about my will, what about my will and my decision to choose God?” You know that doesn’t even really sound right. How can we choose God while we are yet dead in our trespasses and sins?

Let’s see what the bible says about this. What about your willpower in this? 

I asked myself this question since I  was a person with a very strong willpower. In fact, I  stood against my grandmother every Sunday. There was a church and my grandfather was the pastor. As an eight year old, I stood with my willpower as a young child and said to Grandma Greta “NO, I’m not going to that church, I’m not going to your church. I don’t believe in Jesus, I WILL not go”, and I did not go!!! 

So what happened to my willpower when I got the call? It almost seems like it disappeared. I was just caught up, snatched up in the call. You say “prove it to me, show me in the bible.” Well look at Ezekiel the 36th chapter. This is the prophetic words of God about the new birth. He doesn’t mention Jesus by name, but He does mention Him. He says, “I will sanctify My great name, I will take you from among the heathen.” And that’s what happened to Me, the one my grandmother used to call a heathen. 

I was taken from among the heathen and gathered out. He says “I will sprinkle clean water upon you.” Look at God’s emphasis. On all the “I will’s.” He says “I willsprinkle clean water upon you. I will give you a new heart, I will give you a new spirit, I will put a new spirit within you, I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, I will put My Spirit in you, and I will cause you to walk in My statutes and you shall keep My judgments and do them.” 

And that’s what 40 years of my  life have been about. I  got caused to be where I am now. Why? Because He said “I will put My Spirit within you, and it is My Spirit within you that will cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments and do them.” Lord have mercy. It’s the fear of the Lord, that Spirit within, that has caused ME  to be 40 years in Him. 

And then He says “I will also save you from all your uncleanness.” That’s what He does in Christ. Many have jumped out and said “I accept Jesus.” And so, since they accepted Jesus, then they have to cause themselves to keep the laws and the statutes and to obey God. It becomes a real work for them, but it’s a work without power. Why? 

They didn’t wait on the call. 

Wait on Him to call you. If you have a desire for Jesus Christ of Nazareth, then God is moving upon you. Wait for Him to call you. Don’t get duped into saying, “come into my heart.” Jesus Christ of Nazareth does not come into anybody’s heart. But the Fake Jesus does. If you need help, contact me at rescueonfb@icloud.com, because you are going to have to uninvite the Fake Jesus out of your heart, and you’re going to need some help doing that.

IS POSITIVE THINKING BIBLICAL?

Written by Gloria

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7

What interpretation do you have about this verse? I was taught that this verse spoke on how I can shape my reality by what I think, that our thoughts have the power to alter our lives, and that we can make ourselves what we want to be.

But does this verse really teach about the power of our thoughts?

While detoxing from religion, one of the main things I learned  is that It’s important at all times to consider the context of a bible verse. Some factors to look into when reading the bible is  to consider who is the target audience and whether or not  the writer was speaking (referring) to someone specific . To assume that every verse written is personally directed to you is a dangerous way of reading the bible.

It’s also good to have an idea of the historical & cultural context of a particular verse. The question to ask is whether or not the passage of scripture is relevant to present day living.

Let’s look at the verse in relation to the rest of the chapter.

Proverbs 23:1-8

1. When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
2 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.
3 Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
6 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
8 The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

The writer was advising someone that even though this person says “Eat & drink”, be careful not to assume that he is a generous man.  For the words coming out of his mouth may not match what’s in his heart.  why?  because “his heart is not with thee”.

Do not be fooled by the words and generous acts of someone, If  the generosity doesn’t come from the heart, then he is not a generous person. He acts a certain way because he has evil motives.

So within the context of scripture, it becomes clear that the verse has nothing to do with positive thinking or the power of the mind.  Rather, it is addressing hypocrisy. Simply put, people can outwardly act a certain way but their true character is what is in their heart.

So where did this verse get linked to power of thought?

In 1903 a book titled “As a man thinketh” was published by the author James Allen.
download (2)
James Allen was a British philosophical writer and considered a pioneer of the self-help movement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. His best known work is the book “As a Man Thinketh” which is likely based on the Biblical verse Proverbs 23:7 which states: “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Some quotes from his book

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”

“As a being of Power, Intelligence, and Love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills.”

“If he will link cause and effect by patient practice and investigation….. As a means of obtaining that knowledge of himself. “He that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”; for only by patience, practice, and ceaseless importunity can a man enter the Door of the Temple of Knowledge.”

The book primarily teaches that man is self-sufficient to transform his situations, its starts in the mind and everything else follows.

One of the deceptions that is rampant is believing everything that comes from the devil must have a negative connotation to it. If a teaching is meant to help you become better, the assumption is that there’s no way it came from the devil, based upon a belief  that the devil doesn’t want you to be the best you can be! This is not true! The devil is the author of many positive teachings that might even produce some beneficial  effects in your life. Nevertheless, that’s a part of the trap,—to make you believe you are embracing something great when you are actually been set up to be demonized.

The church has joined in teaching the power of positive thinking, notably Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes to name a few; many ministers cherry pick verses to back this false doctrine by teaching that  if people remain positive and grateful,  their situations will change for the better.

It’s alarming that the church has endorsed a teaching that originates from ripping Proverbs 23:7 completely out of context.

By their fruits, you shall know them

What fruits come from this teaching?

It denies people the opportunity to listen to the gospel – instead of people listening to the true gospel of Jesus Christ; they go to church to receive a pep talk telling them that even though they are facing challenges, they can turn it around. How will people know the gospel when they are not even hearing it to begin with? And when they do hear the gospel, it’s a different version that asks them to accept Jesus into their heart.

People are being taught techniques on how to change their thinking from negative to positive with the help of certain activities such as meditation – a practice that facilitates entrance into an altered state of consciousness (ASC). An altered state causes peoples’ chakras to be open & for demons to enter. Pastor Pam has several blogs & videos teaching on how Christians have been deceived into opening their chakras and getting demonized, you can read more on this at:-

Christians Who Open the 7 Chakras Are Demonized!

Also the topic is covered extensively in the book “The Church of the Endtime Zombies”. The link for the paperback & e-book are listed below.

bookcover_zombies

This teaching is also very focused on self & that the power to change is inside of you. Romans 3:23 states that all have fallen short, so we don’t have the power to make ourselves clean from sin, we cannot cause out spirits to be born again by positive thinking. There are some changes people can make in their lives for the better but being born again is something that only the Holy Spirit can do.

This belief in the unregenerated self has given rise to people referring to themselves as “I AM” with views that since humans are made in the image of God,  that we are little gods, another false teaching.

Reading a bible verse in its proper context is crucial in the times we live in, it’s easy to be carried away by false doctrine if you don’t question or challenge what you are taught. “As a man thinketh so is he” addresses hypocrisy not the power of our thoughts.

Christian Seers Who Channel: Recognizing a False Prophet

Pastor Pam Sheppard writes:

From 1975-1977, I was a medium.  Today, the term “channel” is more common to describe someone who communicates with spirits.  Once I became born again on March 29, 1977, I lost all ability to be a vessel for demons.

seance1It was obvious to me in my channeling days  that the information that emanated  through language  did not come from me. At those times, I was consciously aware that  my spirit left my body and that one by one, other beings took over my vocal chords and spoke.  My spirit stood in a corner of the room screaming, “let me back in.”  When the spirits  were done with me, I was like a weak dish rag. I also recall a few times when I would be speaking to someone, and a power would come over me. I found myself  in a kind of suspended animation, as I listened to another entity speaking, which I KNEW  was not me.

Forty years have passed and this has not happened to me since I have been born again.  NOT ONE TIME!

Nevertheless, I suspect that present day   “church prophets” who always have a word are actually channeling in a similar fashion as do   New Age occultists. In other words, either knowingly or unknowing, professing Christians are being used as channels or mediums by religious spirits to send forth messages.

Jessie Penn Lewis in her  century old book “War on the Saints,”  sheds some light on this:

The moment ground is given, in any degree, to evil spirits, the faculties are dulled by them, or become passive through non-use. Their aim then is to substitute themselves for the person in all his actions, and so to gain entrance to him, over the rails, so to speak, of his passive faculties, will, etc., as to intertwine themselves in the innermost structure of his being, and thus to control him and use him for their own purposes; the man meanwhile believing that he is admitting Divine substitutions for himself–that is, God working, and acting instead of himself–and thus he is becoming “God-possessed.”

Believers in such a degree of possession by deceiving spirits then have “supernatural power”, and can, in a supernatural way, get from the spirits in control of them, and give forth from them as their transmitters, many supernatural workings, or manifestations such as:– The getting and transmitting of “Revelations.” The power of “Prophecy.” The power of divination. The receiving and giving of impressions, supernaturally. The getting of specific “guidance,” supernaturally. The foretelling of events. The power of writing automatically, or otherwise. The receiving and giving of information. The receiving of interpretations. The getting of visions.

In my case back in the mid 70’s, I KNEW the communications were coming from outside of me, as my mind and thoughts were not involved, and the spirit beings assigned to me  were distinct from me in interests, knowledge and personality.  However Christians are deceived into assuming that the manifested utterances  of evil spirits are the revelations and gifts of the Holy Ghost.

Jessie Penn-Lewis provides a clear explanation of how evil spirits deceive self proclaimed Christian prophets to believe that their work is the anointing of God:

Many of these manifested workings of the evil spirits in possession of the believer, appear to be the working of the man himself; but of which actions he is incapable naturally; e.g., he may have no “natural” power of “translating, criticizing,” etc. Yet the spirits in possession can give him power for so doing, thus creating a false personality in the eyes of others, who think him possessed of such and such “gifts” (naturally), and are disappointed when he will not use them; not knowing that he is unable to “manifest” or use such supposed “gifts,” except at the will of the spirits in control of him.

Also that when the deceived believer discovers such manifestations to be the fruit of possession, and refuses any longer to be the slave of the lying spirits of Satan, such “gifts” cease to exist. This is the time when the undeceived man is persecuted by the revengeful spirits of evil, through their suggestions to others that he has “lost his power,” or “retrograded” in his spiritual life, when in truth he is being liberated from the effects of their wicked and fiendish workings.

So how do we distinguish a false prophet from a true one?

false prophets5

A true prophet will be humble enough to examine his or herself, willing to put to the test what is received BEFORE he declares it in the public. .  To try the spirits to see if they be of God is mandatory. Anyone who says “thus smith the Lord without testing it thinks he or she is neither sober or vigilant, oblivious to the lion who roams about, seeking whom he may devour.  If you receive words into your spirit from such a one, you are vulnerable, in danger of being devoured yourself.   Any prophet who assumes that he or she  does not  hear from the devil is foolhardy.  Dangerously, that person is deceived already, a passive vessel for the devil’s shenanigans. He has loose lips and he can sink ships with them.  People who speak evil with power have a destructive tongue that should be cut off.

Is God A Member of Your Local Church?

I find that the easiest people for me  to work with in regards to rational, commonsense conversations concerning   the evils within the institutional church  and the fact that their own local  church is not immune from Satanic deception, is when someone contacts me who is in torment, and who also is suffering from  the delusion that they are born again.  Does not the bible declare that  “God did not give us a spirit of fear and of torment, but He gave us a sound mind.” So if your mind is not sound and you are in torment, it becomes clear and logical to ask the question,  “How could I  possibly be   born again? Furthermore, if you’ve been in a local church for several years , and the leadership  still has not recognized your problems, nor have they helped you with them,  it becomes a lot easier to ask yourself “how could  God be  in there?” When a churchgoer starts to think outside his or her religious box, the result is that  he or she is free to  also to take note of  how many people in his  local  church are patients in  the mental health system or the substance abuse system with all kinds of strange health and medical problems, yet  healing and deliverance is consistently preached.   Finally,  when you are free in your mind to  consider that  the pastor’s family is not delivered, aren’t these apparent contradictions signs that God is not there?

I find it  best to reason  with the deceived, rather than use  the bible as a weapon to   “bang, bang, bang, bang folk over their heads.  People need to be encouraged to operate with a sound mind so as to come to their own conclusions.  When a sound mind is delivered from the bondage of passivity, churchgoers will pose their own questions like   ” how is this happening , and why  is that not happening?”Churchfolk quickly pick up the lingo, and will go about declaring  “I’m blessed! I’m blessed, I’ve got this, I’ve got that,  so  I’m blessed!” And most of the time, they either really don’t believe that; or they are in serious  bondage to  a delusion. And so, when I hear such a declaration, I enquire  “what does it mean to be blessed? ”  I will do a churchfolk thing and ask “how does the bible define the nature of being blessed?”  For example, in  Psalm 1. “Blessed is the man (or woman) that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly.” And then, I share with them that what their church is preaching is ungodly counsel. As the most important example of ungodly counsel, you have been taught that you can accept God.  The truth is that   if are to be born again, God has already chosen YOU and not the other way around.

 Then Psalm 1 continues with not  walking in  in the counsel of the ungodly, or standeth in the way of sinners. Then I would ask the question,  “Can you tell tellthe difference between the folk in your local church  and  sinners by  the way they look, the way they operate, the way they talk, the places that they go? this is a subject for yet another post.

“Or sitteth in the seat of the scornful.” One of the things I get the churchgoer to notice   is that the devil loves to mock the church and people who present themselves as the pillars of the church. For example, with Benny Hinn, they haven’t been able to find anybody of all those people that he has waved his hands at, or prayed for, or declared healed. Among all those thousands upon thousands of people.  the last I heard is that there is no  proven record that even ONE really got healed.

So I think its important to ask churchfolk who come our way this important question.   “What is the I. C. really doing for you? Why do you say you’re blessed? Are you really? Is there any fear and torment operating in you or in your family? Are you in captivity to the devil? How can you be in captivity to the devil and you go to church every time the doors are open? Why are you suffering with this or that and you’re a faithful and committed churchgoer?” These are some of the kinds of questions that people will b e offended by but will they will ponder when the dust clears. . “Do you hear from God? Are your prayers being answered? Tell me some of the prophecies that have been said over you. Have they come to pass?”

When I was in the IC as a pastor, the devil was talking to me constantly.  I thought I was hearing from God.  He would make me promises in dreams that he KNEW would never come to pass. His motive was to cause me to weaken in faith and to distrust God.  Once my eyes were opened to the truth, I rarely hear from the enemy in this manner.  Once his tricks were exposed, he did exactly what the Apostle Paul wrote that he would do.  I resisted him and he fleed from me.

So if you are constantly hearing things or receiving visions and you believe its the Lord, you need to check yourself by trying the spirits.  The devil was talking to me  just about every day, and every day I  thought it was God. His pattern was to  reveal 3 things about my future. When two things came to pass, I was duped into thinking the third and most important thing would transpire, BUT IT did not.

So what kind of blessing is that? To be mocked is NOT A BLESSING. 

So be bold and sincere enough to ask a deceived churchgoer this question.  “Are you being mocked as you sit there on that pew? ? Is the devil using sickness, disease, depression, substance abuse, pornography, to mock you?

Well if he can mock you this way, you ain’t saved. And if you’ve been over to that church all this time, and they don’t see it, then they ain’t saved either, and God is not there.”

Is there a question stirring in your mind?  Are you seeking to be undeceived?  Let us here from you.
