The Top Five New Years Resolutions for 2012: Overcome Depression

According to Hebrews 4, entering the Lord’s rest is labor or in other words “work.” If you want to overcome the blues, it’s a struggle and  you have to “work at it!”

Yet, the irony is that we enter in by “ceasing from our own works.”  I believe that  we struggle or “labor”  to enter in for one main reason.   The enemy knows that in order to keep us defeated, he has to block our way by  stealing  both our joy, peace and our rest. So strategically, demonic entities have   designed three main  styles of deception.  Demons revel in depression, oppression and vexation of spirit because these three (3) emotional conditions are open doors to relapse during the restoration process.

Depression is spiritually nurtured by a poor sense of esteem, dissatisfaction, and alienation–each rooted in a lack of patience.  Evil spirits thrive on the three “d’s” of doubt, disappointment and despair to lower our physical energy and vitality. Their method is to entangle weeds of negative thoughts, emotions and attitudes into a stronghold or spiritual underground root system that develops into a solid fortress or base of operation from which demons can function unhindered. 

Condemnation and accusations are central to the guilt experienced by the depressed.  Oppression brings a sense of being smothered or weighed down with the burdens of a troubled, problematic life.  In such cases, the demon assigned to oppress you is by metaphor a “monkey on your back”, hovering around and pressing you down with a persistent attack, until your spiritual back breaks and you fall or “relapse” into depression.  At  both sudden and shocking, the demon will apply a steady and relentless attack with persecution and disarming calamities of all sorts.

Vexation of spirit ALSO takes several forms.  Restlessness can lead to a feeling of annoyance or irritability.  In this regard, evil spirits will employ sequentially ordered petty harassments to cause worry and a disquieted state, akin to mild or even acute stages of paranoia.  In the mental realm, vexation also brings confusion and disorientation.  The demonic weapons of choice are fear and intimidation.  Demons will use others close to us to create situations that incite our emotions.  The agitation we feel may become so intense that we might literally react compulsively and consequently lose control.

Attempting to control ourselves  with human will power alone is an exhausting struggle  that Satan will ultimately win.  We need to humble ourselves to the fact that human will power cannot outlast Satan’s power.  However,  when we are able to rest in Christ by ceasing from our own works,  the Holy Spirit  empowers our spirits with strength that exceeds the capacity of our will.  Ceasing from our own works  will enable us to walk in the spirit and not fulfill the lust of our flesh. You will find that you will enter into  peace and rest without much effort because you have sought the kingdom and found righteousness.

The evil spirit’s goal is to take advantage of  and condemn you for what you have been trained to perceive as  past failures, coupled with  worry and fear over the consequences you may face for your actions, causing you to cry over spilt milk.  The demons are skilled at maneuvering  the perceived failures  to motivate a setback. Deliverance counseling can help you to place the past on the dung heap and press forward to the victory that truth brings. You can stat off the New Year right by booking a telephone session by calling 518-477-5759.

However, when you are ignorant of Satanic devices, evil spirits can and DO repetitively and consistently employ the same strategies to defeat you, over and over again=== simply because in previous years, you were  ignorant to the fact that whatever failures and mistakes  used by  the devil  to destroy you, God intends to use to employ you! So make 2012 your year of victory.

My word of hope to you for the New Year is to let you know that a perceived failure is just another opportunity to struggle to “enter into His rest.” Once you’ve entered, the struggle is over! Remember this.  Satan won’t completely give up on you.   However, once you become a overcomer, deliverance counseling will empower you to the enemy consistently “on the run.”So our lines are open for you to book a session. We will help you  get a jump on the enemy.518-477-5759

Deliverance Ministry? It Doesn’t Work!

Minister Marlene

Deliverance ministry? I never heard of it. I never heard of it in the churches I was in. I think you know what I’m talking about. Here’s a scenario: You go to a church, you’re a recovering drug addict, a recovering alcoholic, or suffer from clinical depression. You may still be drinking, drugging, and as depressed as a wild bird in a tiny gilded cage. But you desperately want to get free.

You get into a church and tell your story, folks look at you like you came from Mars. Then they keep telling you to ” stand on the word “.

You are newcomer in church, and have absolutely no idea what that means. You’re looking for deliverance, but the pastor has no real clue, as to what you’re talking about. And you better not have any kind of crisis in church, folks will creep backwards towards the emergency exit. The pastor will nervously give you a referral to AA or a psychiatrist .Deliverance ministry is not on the churches menu of services. You are up the creek without a paddle, cast back into world to get secular help.

You wonder about Jesus, and how he cast out demons. You have the sense to know, that yours is not their regular case. Everyone in the church pretends that demons don’t exist. When you say Jesus cast them out, so they must exist. The pastor tells you you’re a radical. The pastor tells you we don’t do that here. We don’t specialize in deliverance ministry. You wonder, what kind of pastor is this?
10/25/11 Thirty years a Minister and 38 years experience as a licensed therapist. In deliverance since 1983,Pam Sheppard knows exactly how to help you. Call (518)477-5759 for immediate help.
The pastor doesn’t cast out demons, or deal with demonic afflictions. Say what? To add insult to injury, he doesn’t know anyone involved in deliverance ministry. There you are, a newbie in church, with demons riding your back like a pack of monkeys. The people who are supposed to know all about deliverance haven’t got a clue. You just make them nervous. So you sit in the church for 50 years, go to the counselor and take the pills. And since you also have the drinking problem, you become a lifelong member in AA for 50 years. You wonder, where is my victory in Christ? I’m worst than I was before I got in this church.
Does this scenario sound familiar? Enter Pamela Sheppard…
Pam Sheppard made this statement in a recent article…
Pam writes: If the deceived and bound have not heard it already, they will hear the Lord say ” I never knew you “. And the fault will be that of the ministers who are complicating the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through what I am learning as I practice my profession of counseling, obviously the church models of today aren’t working. When people can sit in church and listen to sermon after sermon for 50 years and still not be saved, organized church is not working…..when captives can go to their pastor seeking relief from bondage only to hear ” stand on the word”–a word that neither the pastor or captive understands…it is NOT working.
My friends, call the number now.   518-477-5759. Deliverance ministry in the Churches is just not working. You know it, and I know it.  Read Pam’s book “Faces of the Religious Demon and find out why you are NOT getting delivered and what you need to do to get delivered!
P.S. This article may seem quite funny to you. Well, I was the person in church for years suffering from depression, which is a spirit. I finally just decided to believe Jesus, and ignore the organized church. I cast that spirit from myself in Jesus’s name.. I also had a drug problem. I was not a drinker though. The above story is just an illustration. But the theme was the same for me. I was in a church where the pastor thought casting out demons was radical, he also had no one he could refer me to. The article probably has a touch of humor, simply because I’m too too delighted to be in training for deliverance ministry under Pam Sheppard. She developed her own deliverance model of cursing the very root of demonic affliction and possession. By the time she finishes with you you’ll be straight and free, if that is your true desire.
