Demons and Depression by JPL in War on the Saints

CAUSES OF DEPRESSION APART FROM THE
PHYSICAL CONDITION

Herein lies the real cause of depression as experienced by many believers, apart from purely physical conditions. The victim of depression and melancholia has admitted thoughts suggested by the deceiving spirits, until the mind is unable to shake them off, or else the enemy has obtained such a footing, that he holds the mental faculties in a grip of passivity, so that they cannot act. He feels as though they were in a vice, or weighted with some heavy pressure which obscures all light, and prevents him grasping the facts around him, or using his reason at all. The malignant powers of darkness ofttimes succeed in keeping those who have given them opportunity to get them into their grip under the most harassing clouds and shadows. They rejoice over their own wicked deeds, and love to bind their victims, and keep them in bondage.

This is truly the “oppression” of the enemy (Ps. 42: 9), and is the outcome of the earlier stages of the attacks of deceiving spirits upon the mind, which could have been quenched had they been dealt with at the beginning.

That the enemy takes advantage of any mental feebleness, or overstrain, or disease, is, of course, to be recognized; but in persons of normal health, with no disease of the mind, inherited or induced, much of the “depression” may be attributed to the inroads of the enemy, through ground given unconsciously at some previous time. The cause of “brain-fog” too, needs to be examined in this light, lest many attribute to natural causes what may have been supernaturally brought about.

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.

Your Passive Personality will Give the Devil the Edge By Minister Francine

Passive personalities have a unscriptual understanding of what it means to be a peacemaker. They deny their own anger, and pretend everything is O.K. When we are passive, and believe that to be a Christian means to be a doormat, the religious demon moves in. Why does the religious demon gain a foothold? Pam Sheppard is not only the expert on the topic, but she has written a book called ” Faces of the Religious Demon” that covers all in detail.

According to Pam Sheppard, the religious demon causes passive spirits to become spiritually crippled in regards to taking a stand against principalities and powers. I can certainly attest to and understand what Pam is referring to. If you can’t take a stand against other Christians who  are obviously  pushing you around, and taking advantage of you, something is wrong. How on earth will you be able to confront demons?

When Christian leaders are allowed to vent their unholy appetites in the organized church, because their passive followers are too weak to confront them…Houston we have a problem! Those who are passive personalities, because of a distorted and unscriptural understanding of the Gospel, are fodder for the religious demon. How so? Tell me why pastors who abuse children sexually in church get away with it? Tell me why pastors who commit crimes, get convicted but still keep a large following in tow. On all points, a religious demon is at work in passive personalities that cause souls to be lost.

Tell me why Christian leaders who are tyrants and bullies, leave a trail of passive personalities quivering in their boots? Such personalities are ready to throw even children under a bus, to please the pastor. And also tell me why Christian leaders who are sincere, and God sent, have to put up with passive personalities walking about on egg shells, afraid to do the work they themselves were called to.

I’m not a stranger to such behaviors myself, but I can tell you this: those days are long since gone for me. Passivity, a passive personality, and a unscriptual understanding of what it means to be a peacemaker, will usher you right into hell. The person  you’ve allowed to abuse you may just end up in some flames too. Case in point, before I was totally freed in Christ, I had to let go of a so-called Christian who I thought was like a mother to me. Well, she was no such thing but a witch in sheep’s clothing. Doing her word of faith thing, and her witchcraft thing all at the same time. And as abusive and caustic  as powdered lye. Always ready with a sharp put down, and torments reminding me of my past history of child abuse and addictions.

A few weeks before I got truly saved, I dreamt that this woman was in my car, in the driver’s seat, I sat in the back, and the woman was driving like a wild women. I found an interesting excerpt today by Pam Sheppard’s book ” Faces of the Religious Demon”, that gave the same meaning I got in reference to this dream. This woman had taken charge of my very soul.

On page 207 of the groundbreaking textbook ” Faces of the Religious Demon” Pam Sheppard writes in reference to personality types that religious demons gain power from:

Faces of the Religious Demon By Pam Sheppard

Pam Sheppard writes:

In each personality type there will be Christians who have not rightly divided the word of God relative to being  a peacemaker, where forgiveness and meekness are taken for weakness. Acclimated to the general role of peacemaker, captives may live a life of pretense, where they habitually hide and deny justifiable hostility and anger so as to turn the other cheek ” religiosity “.

 In this regard, the religious demon will cause passive saints to become spiritually crippled in their counterfeit moral purity, predisposing to a shrinking process that stifles their ability to strike back–not so much at people who have wronged them, but for taking a stand against principalities and powers. They end up feeling like one of my clients who dreamed she was the back seat driver in her own car, and the person whom the Jezebel spirit has manipulated to keep the client in captivity was metaphorically ” behind the wheel ” of her very soul.

Do you see that. Do you see what Pam said. In my dream, this so-called Christian controlling, abusive, caustic person was driving my car. She was a Christian who I tolerated because I had been living a life of pretense, hiding justifiable anger. I had allowed this woman to get ” behind the wheel ” of my very soul. This gave the religious demon power to afflict me. The day I broke the bondage of passivity I heard the Lord say, whom the Son sets free is free indeed. We can’t be free and passive at the same time. God needs soldiers! Doormats can’t fight demons.

A passive personality invites religious demons. Passivity and counterfeit love (term coined by Pam) are pretense, if your angry your angry.  Pretending not to be angry is a counterfeit emotion. If we are such passive personalities, that we can’t deal with onslaughts and abuse upon our own person, what then? Can God use a passive personality? Or will your passive personality better serve the purposes of the religious demon?

Pam Sheppard has over 38 years experience as a pastor, and a deliverance counselor. She’s an expert on the topic of deliverance. If you need deliverance from passivity, and allowing yourself to be abused, call her. If you need deliverance from allowing the organized church, and abrasive Christian leaders  to dog you out, call her. If you need deliverance of any kind, even if you just need to talk, call Pam. The phone lines are open, and her team of supervised deliverance mentors are waiting to serve you. 38 years is a long, long time. This fact alone should spur you to make that call Now! (518)477-5759

Satan’s Agenda for a Little Girl Part II

Pam cast a demon of depression from me and I haven't been depressed since that day, two years ago.

Shortly after I aborted my first child, I left the boyfriend who had gotten me pregnant. I was so desperate to be loved, driven to be loved. It would lead me into a string of promiscuous relationships opening myself deeper to the depression demon. After my sister’s death, I rallied against these demonic entities, wanting to be free. I always had a yearning to be free from the sadness and the loneliness. I had let go of the thoughts of any religion at that point and decided to do things on my own. Shortly after, I had met someone who would eventually become my husband. He was a classic narcissist, but in a way, I wanted someone who was so involved with themselves that they couldn’t see how dirty and used I was. I was fully bulimic at the time, trying to keep my weight down so I would be attractive to my soon to be husband.

 I believe now, that it was those lustful spirits in me that attracted men with the same spirits. I ended up becoming pregnant again and aborted it even though it was with the man I was going to marry.  I was lonely and knew that there was really no love, I never felt loved but I married him anyway. I remember waking up on my wedding day and saying to myself “What have I done?” One of Satan’s big lies is, you better get married right now because there may not be anyone else who want’s you. So you settle for less than what God has for you. Not knowing it then, but God was going to save me, He knew my heart and He gave me two children as a blessing. Depression however was always with me. When, 8 years after our marriage I hit the wall. My husband was terrible to me, angry and mean. My children were out of control…I went outside and cried out with all my heart to the Lord…”SAVE ME! I cannot be saved unless you save me, I’m sorry for not listening to you!”

He did save me, the problem was, I had always been led by emotions and emotional experiences…so for all of those years I was led by the fake jesus and his demons, they were still working but now, they could use my salvation . This was the jesus who would fight with me to go from a Lutheran church, to a Charismatic  Non Denominational church. It would make me cry every week in the shower. I bought into the lie, hook, line and sinker. Because of the false doctrine, and the emotional aspect, I went deeper into depression and the deeper I went into depression, the deeper I went into the church.

 It was cyclical, looking for my answers there as if God was a “candy machine.” This is how they teach, ” just ask God,  just tithe, just do what God want’s you to do, be faithful, go to more events, pray more, get on your knees more, dance more, get involved more  etc etc etc.” It just put me into more and more bondage. At one point, driving home in my car after church, all I could think was, “it’s never going to happen, I am always going to be sick and depressed!” I wanted to believe there was a way, but I knew what I was doing wasn’t working. Only God could have opened my eyes to what was going on, I couldn’t have brought myself to see it. I remember a time in worship I was worshiping in full extension, arms over my head, lost, and I felt the Holy Spirit saying to me, “they worship me with their mouths, but their hearts are far away from me.”

 Immediately my hands went down. It was from then on God began to reveal truths to me. Eventually, God brought me out and led me to Pam and to my freedom. Satan couldn’t stop what God had intended for me because He always knew my heart….there is hope for you too.

If you suffer from demonic affliction, depression, abortions,   a bad marriage,  phony religion, you should  call Sheppard’s Counseling Center today. Even if you just need to talk, the phone lines are open right now. Her team of supervised deliverance ministers, are waiting to serve you. Your deliverance, and full freedom in Christ is Pam’s number one concern. The fact that she has 38 years of experience as a licensed therapist  under her belt, should beckon you to the phone to make the call. Call Now! (518)477-5759.

Satan’s Agenda for a Little Girl: Visitations from the Fake Jesus by Minister Kellie

By Minister Kellie

Satan tried to steal my soul at a very young age. When I was three years old, I was sexually abused by the teenage boys and girls down the street from where I lived. What would a little girl know about sex at this age? Because of this door being opened it was the beginning of my visitations from demons of lust. .

At night I would lie in bed,  little and scared because I would feel the demons around me, I would cry because I was scared. After about a year, we moved away to a different town. My mother had then gotten us involved in a Lutheran church. I would remember going there and feeling safe. Little did I know then, that the jesus I was seeing there was the fake jesus and not the real one.

I was still being visited by the demons but then I also started having visitations from this “jesus” and in that time, I had visitations on many occasions. I would feel demons of lust around me wanting to have sex with me, but I would see this “jesus” also. This was the hook …Satan’s agenda..get me to follow the fake jesus by showing himself to me and helping to dispel the demons of lust….

If that wasn’t bad enough, the man next door to us at our new home had begun to sexually abuse me and this is when I began to understand that when there is sexual abuse, the demons from others can almost sniff it out..like when a male dog goes into heat looking for a female to mate with, such is how these demons sniff out sexual abuse in another. I know now that the main objective was for the enemy to render me useless for the kingdom of God by playing himself against himself. He was setting me up for the big deception…..

Jesus Sananda Immanuel the “fake jesus “

Pam Sheppard has written a most excellent book on the fake Jesus aptly entitled “The Fake Jesus “. Pam is THE expert on the topic. You’ll gain a complete and exact understanding of who the fake jesus is by reading Pam’s book. Click the book’s cover to preview it.

Sananda is on the cover of the book “the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.” This groundbreaking book was written by Pam Sheppard

At 16 I was on the beach with my friend when I saw a young boy sitting in the sand with his legs crossed. He was around my age and as I was walking by him he asked me, “Do you know Jesus Christ?”  I didn’t but I was so angry all of the time, and I fought constantly with my parents and siblings..our home was chaotic most of the time. I said “no”  and he asked me if I wanted to. I said “sure” as my life couldn’t have gotten any worse than it already was. I said the “Sinners Prayer” with him and asked jesus into my heart. For two weeks I felt peaceful, the most peaceful I had ever felt and THEN….my whole life went to hell in a hand basket!

I was more out of control than I had ever been. I got pregnant and aborted the baby shortly after,became promiscuous and this would be the start of my depression…I would go on this way for years….little did Satan know that God had other plans for my life, but I will talk about that it my next article…until then, know this: If Jesus Christ of Nazareth has truly set you free, you will be free indeed.

Minister Kellie Reveals That Depression Is A Demon!

Minister Kellie

My name is Kellie Leclerc, and I was saved by the Lord in the Spring of 1988. I have always desired a relationship with the Lord, even if I didn’t understand what that meant or how to achieve it. It was not until the spring that I was called into new life with Him at age 33.

I was once a captive and through deliverance counseling with Pam, I was set free from a demon of depression. It’s because of this that I began to understand about depression and how demons can work their way into a person’s personality so that they become a part of the person. I am a person who has gone through trauma and became fragmented. I began to  realize that demons filled in the gaps of my personality.  Demons not only gave way to my depression, but to religious and lustful demons as well.  These demonic entities working along with my own free will drove me to behaviors that were contrary to the will of God.

Minister Kellie BEAT Depression

A religious teaching I had learned in organized religion was that God would help me, deliver me and take care of me if I just believed. The question was, what did I believe? This question would nag me for the rest of my stay in the religious organization. A quote from the book The Fake Jesus described my condition, “The primary cause of deception and possession in surrendered believers may be condensed into one word, ‘PASSIVITY’, this is, a cessation of the active exercise of the WILL in control over the spirit, soul or body, as may be the case. It is, practically, a counterfeit of ‘surrender to God’. The believer who surrenders their members or faculties to God, and ceases to use them themselves, thereby falls into passivity which enable evil spirits to deceive, and possess any part of his being which has become passive.”

    I had surrendered myself to thinking that God was going to take care of everything and all I had to do was go to church, tithe, do side ministries for the church and God was going to heal me from all of my depression. The problem with this thinking was, I never pursued the real truth of what I was hearing. I basically thought, “If this is what is being preached by my pastors, and leadership, this is what must be true.” Little did I know that all it was doing was putting me deeper in bondage to these demons.  I lost my home, couldn’t take care of my children, became the most depressed I had ever been in my life and was led into two adulterous relationships. It was only when God called me out and as He slowly undeceived me, I saw the error in the doctrine that was being preached. It is because of this I will be able to help others out of the wilderness of depression, religion and lust.

I am accredited with an Associates, going towards my Bachelor’s in Psychology. I know that for those that are suffering in these areas, I can help you if you are looking for healing.

HOW TO TAKE BACK YOUR PEACE!

According to Hebrews 4, entering the Lord’s rest is labor or in other words “work.” 

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.

Pam Sheppard, A licensed therapist for 38 years.

.

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.y to rest and peace. 
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 the back”, hovering around and pressing you down with a persistent attack, until your spiritual back breaks and you fall or “relapse”.  At times 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 without much effort because we have sought the kingdom and found righteousness. 

The evil spirit’s goal is to take advantage of  and condemn us for what we have been trained to perceive as  past failures, coupled with  worry and fear over the consequences we may face for our actions, causing us 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. 

However, when we are ignorant of Satanic devices, evil spirits can and DO repetitively and consistently employ the same strategies to defeat us, over and over again=== simply because we are ignorant to the fact that whatever failures and mistakes  used by  the devil  to destroy us, God uses it ALL to employ us!”

A perceived failure is just another opportunity to struggle to “enter into His rest.” Once you’ve entered, the struggle is over!  Satan won’t completely give up on you.   However, once you become an overcomer,
you will find the enemy consistently “on the run.”

SET FREE FROM DEPRESSION AND LUST

By Minister Kellie Wood Leclerc
I believe that a Christian can and does hear the voices of demons parading as the voice of Lord. If a Christian is not willing to believe that not every voice he hears is God, he will be open to being deceived by these same demons to do and say things that are not in line with the will of God. This can be because the Christian is not truly saved, or because he has a spirit of rebellion that makes him think that the voice he hears, thinking it’s God will also be the voice that lines up with his own will.
 I can attest to this because back when I was a new Christian I too, believed that every time I heard this voice, it was the Lords. This drove me to tithe money, give away things and go into relationships that  God never had intended for me. I couldn’t believe that this God who loved me, would allow me to do things that weren’t in His will. I now realize that this was false doctrine that I had picked up in a religious organization. I also began to realize that depression and lust, the traumas that I had endured as a child because of sexual and parental abuse opened doors to these demons as well. The religious organization only exacerbated these demons. I began to experience deep depression that would last for weeks, sometimes months.
I had also developed a serious case of lust that became much worse after being involved with an elder of the church I was attending. It wasn’t until I left the church and all of its false doctrines, that God gave me the desire to search for someone who was inspired by the Holy Spirit to aid in my healing.
This is how I came to know Pamela Sheppard.
 After counseling with Pam, I began to see that my whole Christian life was built on certain doctrinal lies that held me in bondage to these demonic entities that fed off my depression and lust. God then delivered me from these demons because Pamela knew that they were hiding in my emotions, and actually had become part of my personality. Because of this, she cast demons from me  with the help of the Holy Spirit and since that time I have been free from depression and lust for over 2 years now.
If you suffer from trauma that has stemmed from false religions, sexual abuse or depression, it is my belief that you do not have to live in it for the rest of your life. There is hope for you to be healed and whole. If God is no respecter of persons, what He did for me, He will also do for you if you will just be obedient to His will. If this speaks to you and you feel that God is calling you out to a life of freedom in the Holy Spirit click this  link:
I am now one of Pam’s ministers, trained in the SEW Deliverance Counseling Training Program.  I highly recommend it for anyone who either feels a call to minister freedom to others, or who simply wants to know more of the truth.
