The Institutional Church: Is She Babylon or the Harlot?

“After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory. And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “ Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”

I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “ Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘ I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.’ For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.  (Revelation 18:1-8 )

There are lots of reasons for the plagues in the church. One of them is because church leaders have been adding to and detracting from the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul warned the Galatians that this would bring on a curse. Actually, the institutional church has been distorting the gospel of Jesus Christ in our times for decades. Messages like the prosperity gospel is one of the biggest culprits. This “sow a seed” with the seed not being what the Lord Himself interpreted as the word of God, but money, is a clear example of the distortion. This false doctrine not only adds and detracts to the gospel but it actually twists scriptures, taking them out of context to mean something entirely different.

I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed! (Galatians 1:6-9)

To be accursed on a grand scale produces plagues.

It is important to note that the institutional church will not be completely shut down until the actual “end.” Her fate is clear in the book of revelations. Who is the Babylon that the angel spoke to and warned that God’s people must come out of? Where are God’s people? For the most part, around the world, GOD’S PEOPLE ARE IN THE CHURCHES!!!

Without a doubt. Babylon is certainly a mystery. While at times, present day Babylon seems to be a country and other times, it seems to be the institutional church. I admittedly have been conflicted on this question. There are times I believe that Babylon is America because the biblical description sounds a lot like the USA. Moreover, there are signs right now that suggest that this country is already falling. NEVERTHELESS, God’s people are all over the world, not just America. Yet perhaps the angel is not referring to God’s people in the entire word, but only those of God’s who happen to be residing in mystery Babylon at the time of the end.

Does it matter? Not really. Because even if the IC is not Babylon, she is obviously the Harlot!

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.” And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, “ BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly. And the angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. And he *said to me, “The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.” (Revelation 17:1-7,15-18)

The biblical description of the great Harlot strongly resembles the Catholic Church. The Protestant churches at this very hour are embracing Catholicism, recognizing Her as their mother, “the Mother of Harlots.’ Rome is the city, the seat of the Vatican. So America can’t really be Babylon because we can’t ”mother” anything as we were just born ourselves in 1776, just 242 years old. So Catholicism is the Mother of the many harlots within Protestantism.


To “go deeper,” there are a number of books that will be enlightening, to say the least: “Come Out of Her, God’s People, The Fake Jesus. the New Idolatry, Faces of the Religious Demon, Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry,   and the Church of the End-time Zombies.”  They are like Sequels yet you can choose which one to read first.  Click here

Christians Who Open the 7 Chakras Are Demonized!

By Pastor Pam

The Dangers of Opening the 7 Chakras

English: Chakra picture produced by AuraStar20...

The Seven Chakras in Man and Woman

Those who have practiced meditation, yoga and who have submitted themselves to various chakra initiations within Eastern belief systems have unknowingly opened themselves to scores of demons. If you are a practicing Christian  and you are experiencing various energy pulls, shifts, sensations of heaviness, heat and cold, if you find yourself frequently out of control of various body parts, bodily functions  and/or other manifestations, you are experiencing the outward signs that suggest that you need to be delivered “inside” your spiritual body. Here is why. You have made an invitation to Hindu gods, aka, evil spirits aka demons and fallen angels. Here is a summary of “what has happened.”

              The 7 demonic gateways or doorways

There are seven psychic gates  in the human body that occultists call chakras: The crown of the head,  the forehead between the eyes called the 3rd eye, the throat, the heart,  the navel, the sex organs and the anus. In his testimony, former  grandmaster occultist, “Eric” revealed that these 7 openings are sealed by God and opened by man through sin.  When they are opened, spirits are able to pass through these gates or doorways, several at a time.

About 5 years ago, I counseled a very religious man, an Asian who had been dedicated as a child to Hindu gods, converted as an adult to Christianity, studying to be a minister in seminary and a member of a 7th day Adventist church. He came to me because he was hearing condemning, accusatory voices throughout each day.  In counseling we  discovered that “James” was not saved. James has been a long time practitioner of yoga, a spiritual discipline whose goals are to “open  the 7 gateways.” James’s gateways were wide open. The Lord gave James a  dream, showing him that over each chakra, sat a Hindu deity, aka a demon–as follows:

7. The crown—Shiva   6. The Third Eye—Hakini  5. the Throat—Savashiva

4. The Heart—Isha  3.  the Navel—Vahni 2. The sex organs Vishnu and Rakini,

1. The Anus—Brahma.

During the telephone deliverance session, James discerned that scores of demons were running in and out of each of his gates.  So to stop this, I had to close the gates by casting out each of the 7 deities. Calling them by their Hindu names, one by one, they came out roaring, cursing,  screaming and speaking in tongues.  By the way, James had never spoken in tongues, other than in the  session.

This was a unique deliverance.  I had never heard of any such thing before or since.  However, after reading what Eric had to say, I will certainly perform this ritual with others. James was not only delivered of the torment,  but all of his religiosity completely disappeared.

Eric reports  in his book that he has projected himself into the bodies of weak  pastors through the first gateway, the anus. When “inside”, he would evaluate the pastor’s spiritual power through his aura, a feat that Eric  accomplished in two minutes. If the aura is a certain color, then Eric knows the person is weak in faith. In most cases, the power of the pastor was weak because of fornication. In his own words, “There are  many men, women, boys and girls who are ravening wolves or agents of different demons, operating in different churches all over the world.  Women and girls are more in this connection than men. The presence of such agents in Christian churches will always guide astral spirits on how to advance their manipulations against Christians.”

According to Eric, the sins that open the 7 gates are:

1. sexual intercourse with a demon in a dream or sex with a prostitute

2. drugs

3. visiting a fortune-teller

4. receiving healing through occult powers

5. reading occult books.

6.  Anger. (By anger, demons transmit certain diseases or sicknesses.  Demons will manipulate people to seek solutions from witches and  occultist—a psychic healer–who himself is an agent of demons in  disguise.

This is no surprise to me. Our Deliverance Assessment Form gleans this kind of information from clients.  What Eric confirms is that human spirits, witches and warlocks, and people skilled in astral travel can enter into one or more of the 7 gates with their own spirits, and function as if they were a demon spirit. Now I  understand why the Holy Spirit has often led me to call the spirit by name—a mother, father, relative, rapist, any human being who has put my client into bondage. In my deliverance counseling practice, I have had success with not only casting out demons but also casting out human spirits from a captive to a demonic soul tie.

If you have opened any of these 7 gateways, you need to have demons expelled from each chakra and then each chakra must be shut down and closed tightly,  the way God intends for them to be, call toll free 888-818-1117 to make an appointment for a telephone deliverance counseling session.

Hearing God About the Judgement of the Institutional Church: Get Ready To Leave Her!

imageOne of my ministries is that of an end time watchman. I was reminded of the Lord’s warning to yet another watchman whose name is Ezekiel. I personally heed the Lord’s command to Ezekiel as though His words were spoken directly to me. Simply put, if I don’t warn you, the people, then your blood is on my hands. (Ezekiel Ch. 3) Consequently ,I am committed to releasing truth not only IN love, but BY love.

Point #1: Simply stated, I personally suspect that the institutional  church has already been judged relatively recently, perhaps decades, maybe even a century ago.

If not, then judgment is very close at hand.  Satan began to progressively establish a seat within church divisions, sects, and organizations since around the third century. Therefore, I believe that the book of Revelation was prophetically  written about every church age. However, death has been a real blessing for the saints who have already left this earth prior to “the end.” Truly, those who are alive when the Lord Jesus Christ returns for the dead and the living will face a challenge that no other church age has been required to face. I believe that we are approaching  that hour NOW—as we live in the best of times and the worst of times. I may see the grave, maybe NOT—-but my daughter and my grandson may yet be alive when He comes. So where do we stand now?

Point #2. Well, I believe that we are in the midst of a transition.

Back in the summer of 1981, as I sat in a chair dozing,–(not asleep yet not fully awake either,) I heard the audible voice of the Lord. I didn’t have to try the spirits on this one. Didn’t have a chance to. He said “Pam,” and my spirit caused my mouth to answer immediately— “Yes, Lord.”

Then He said “I am about to do a new thing with My Church.” I stirred, stretched a bit and answered, ” Uh, huh.” Then, in the sweetest voice I have ever heard in my life, He asked very politely, without a hint of command or demand—- “Can I use you??” I was spiritually ignorant back then and so I answered without even thinking, “Sure Lord. Let’s start with the Roses of Hope.” It took decades for me to realize that “His church” was not just the local church that I was a member of.

In my local church, The Roses of Hope was a money-raising group who organized house parties where they had card games and sold liquor to raise money for the church. I had only been a churchgoer for two years in 1981 when the Lord called me.. Likewise, I was still as carnal as the rest of the members, but commonsense told me that there was something not quite right about THIS kind of money-raising. lol. Once I mentioned the Roses of Hope, my conversation with the Lord stopped immediately and there was a deep silence. Disappointed, I thought to myself “what did I say that turned Him off?” I was such a babe. I have heard His voice a few times since but never again quite LIKE THAT!!!

Looking back, I realize that this encounter with the Lord was one of the several ways that I received my calling 35 years ago prior to entering the ministry on Oct. 25, 1981. At that time, I did not know what a sermon was much less a calling to ministry, so it took at least 10 signs for me to finally comprehend that I was being called. Even so, I have  forgotten the Lord’s mentioning of “the new thing.” What new thing is the Lord is going to do with “His Church?” I can look back over the last 14 years and finally understand that the new thing is Christian assembly online, in homes, with very little organization, other than to planning and strategy. The barest of administration to provide the slights of order to avoid confusion of His endtime sheepfold around the world.

so to keep with the flow of my story, as a pastor for 17 of my 25 years of ministry in a church institution,  I had another encounter with the voice of God, this time in a dream. I never saw His face, only His robe.  The focus of the dream was my ministry within the institutional church I had been ordained by and appointed two different churches to pastor.  I was in a comfortable groove and never even considered leaving. So I was baffled by this dream. The Lord said “Pam, you are a light hidden under a bed.  I cannot use you here.” He started to walk away, then turned around and said in a casual way “but let them put you out.”

Wow! I was shocked. My immediate response was “I have 25 years of good standing in this denomination.  It is impossible for them to put me out.” A week after the dream, I learned there was a secret plot underway in an attempt to discredit me.  I could have come against it without a problem but I remembered the dream. Therefore,   I did not fight it at all.  In fact, I sat back and watched, pretending I was blind to the plot as everything as initiated behind my back, yet I had new eyes on the back of my head.  Nine months later, I let them remove my name from their rolls. Nevertheless, not even once  did I consider in 2004, that it was God’s intent that I never enter  another church building  again. Then in 2007, fully awake, not in an obvious altered state of consciousness, I heard from the Lord once again on these matters.  What I heard THIS time was beyond shocking.

There was no audible voice this time, as the communication was from ” the sender of the message to my spirit and then to my mind.” At the time, I was attempting to set up a conference schedule to conduct deliverance training seminars for a churches around the country and in Bermuda when I ran into a “closed-door.” Almost immediately, the Lord revealed to me that He was the one who closed the door. Wondering why, I sought the Father in prayer. It didn’t take long for me to be answered. In less than a week, a kind of telepathic communication took place to let me know that I was “on the wrong track”. .

First I heard a question. “Pam. would you put up curtains at the windows of a condemned building?” I used my mind to answer with a “no.” Then a kind of speech was made that went something like this. “A homeless person will make a home in a condemned building. To escape the elements of the weather on the outside, he will satisfy himself and “make do” with no heat, no running water, no lights, and he will share his dwelling with the occupants: the rats and the roaches.” Then I was hit in the face with this statement. “If you try to edify the organized church with seminars and conferences, you will be putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building.”

Metaphorically speaking, it was clear to me that the condemned building was a symbol of the organized church. If this “mental conversation” was from the Holy Ghost)===== then the metaphor is suggesting that the organized church is a condemned building. Please note that I am still trying the spirits, so I am not saying “thus says the Lord” in this instance. If you have heard different, please let me know so that we can try the spirits together!!!

Condemnation suggests “judgment.” The word says that “judgment will begin at the household of faith.” Therefore, natural logic by simple commonsense suggests to me that “the organized church has either already been judged or will be judged very soon.” In keeping with this parable of sorts, sheep who attend church regularly are those who are afraid of the outside elements of a dangerous and sinful world, –and rightly so–Therefore, it makes sense to run inside church walls for protection. Yet, in keeping with the symbols, when we run inside, we find that there is no light. God is light. In Him there is no darkness at all. No light-No God!!!!! So what do we do? We “make do!!!”

The church has become skilled at “making do!” Since Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the Light and His people are referred to “as lights”, the next logical thought is that He is not the Head of the organized church and very few of His people are attending church. So what of the massive, mega congregations? Same thing. No light. No God. As astutely recognized in the words  of one of my subscribers, it’s just a crowd of gatherers worshipping someone who they refer to as Jesus. To quote her exact words, “wherever the crowd gathers, there is sin crouching at the door.”

In addition, there is no running water in the condemned building— no rivers of living water–therefore, no Holy Ghost. Without the Holy Ghost, then the 7 stars are removed. The 7 stars are the angels of God.(Rev.1:20) Angels are assigned to the churches to guard and protect each flock. Without the Holy Ghost and the angels of God, it is understandable why the sheep are being spiritually damaged by the shepherds—- The RATS are the wolves in sheep’s clothing—- hirelings–the so-called shepherds of the flock—- countless pastors who fellowship with uncleaness, ie. the roaches.

So it stands to reason, that if this “condemned building” parable be from the Lord, then the leaders of the church as it now stands have fared poorly in the Lord’s eyes. If this be so, then what about the sheep? Sheep need shepherds?!!! Where are the shepherds of the Lord? A condemned building can stand, maybe for years but ultimately, the beams and the walls will crumble and fall. If it doesn’t fall, then the city will come along with a bulldozer and “take it down.” How will the organized church come down?

Read Revelation Ch. 17 and Rev. 18 about “the harlot” called Mystery Babylon. After the fall of the towers of the World Trade Center, I thought that Rev. Ch. 18 was fulfilled for several reasons. However, one fact caused me to know that the dust fallout in NYC and the fall of “world trade” was not the complete fulfillment of this chapter. Why? Because the World Trade Center is being rebuilt. The scripture clearly states that when Babylon falls, there will be no rebuilding of her. So I wrongly assumed that Mystery Babylon was NYC. I was born and raised in NYC. Therefore, in error, I warned everyone I knew to “come out of her.”

After a few years passed, I realized that NYC is NOT Babylon. Is it the USA? Maybe.  Any one who knows the Lord realizes that He would not command us to “come out of her, my people” (Rev. 18:4), “lest you share in her sins, lest you receive of her plagues,” unless there was an actual place where we could flee to. Where are God’s people? Well, for the most part, God’s people are known to be in the organized church.

If Mystery Babylon were an actual city or nation, where on earth could all of God’s people go in an exodus of unimaginable global proportions? Recognizing the signs of the time, a few Christians have already fled to Canada, believing that in doing so, they are going to escape the fall of America. I say this to you. How can America be Babylon when God’s people are everywhere. So where are His people in every nation on the planet supposed to go? To the Moon or to Mars?

I don’t know about you but I don’t own a space ship. Even though several mega-tv evangelists own personal jet planes, they don’t own space ships!!! Regardless of what anybody says, America is the best country in the entire world. Meaning no disrespect to non-American readers, seekers of freedom from around the world flee their native lands all the time to find a safe harbor on American shores. There is no actual “place” that God’s people can go to on this earth.

Ironically, the USA is a country founded upon the flight of spiritually oppressed people from the Old World. However, since Christopher Columbus, oppressed Americans have no earthly place that we ourselves can flee to. Think about it. Can all of God’s people in the USA fit into Canada? Let’s be real, here. Anyway, if America is to fall, how safe is Canada? Canada is just around the corner from us. We’d be better off in Australia or the South Pole!!!!

BUT Fear not!!! Mystery Babylon could certainly not be a physical place. In 3 of my books, I referred to “the Fake Jesus” and other Ascended Masters aka “fallen angels”, with the two leading ones calling themselves Maitreya and Jesus Sananda Immanuel.  I am not alone in my belief that Mystery Babylon is a metaphor symbolizing idolatrous religion and other world systems. The “judged” church is not Mystery Babylon in its totality, but merely a part of it, Actually, there are several signs that the organized churches of today will eventually unite with all of the other false religions that relegate our Lord to a mere teacher or a prophet who they claim is a created being, “not divine”.

Yet I believe that most of the true church will rise out of a righteous remnant that still remains within the institution called  church and others whom the Lord has touched and called who have never been church members. I realize that the outpouring of the spirit of God upon ALL flesh is coming upon “the remnant church” but clearly, the Holy Ghost will not manifest Himself in a corrupt place. The Lord will not put new wine into old wineskins. However, where the rivers will flow, I do not yet know.

Does the “new thing” require buildings to do the work of the Lord.? No, but if so, I suspect that buildings will be used on a very limited scale. The early church of the book of Acts “was not organized,” as followers of the resurrected Lord assembled in each other’s homes. Likewise,  the “new thing” will not be organized with boards, bishops and buildings either!!!! The only covering required is the Head Himself, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Praise His Holy Name!!!

Nor will anyone be  able to stand in the way of “the new thing.” I have perceived some signs that quietly and secretly the Holy Ghost has been taking His time over the last few decades, preparing righteous and holy shepherds–like Joshua and Caleb– who have been refined in the fires of trial, trouble and tribulation— leaders across the globe. There are not many of them, but like Gideon’s army, there will be enough to do the job. So what should we do in the meantime? Well, we should “watch, pray and wait. “

Some of God’s people have already heeded the call and we have “come out of Her.” Others of you may have to stay within the condemned building for a time or at least on its periphery, until you too “hear the call.” It is not my job to “call you out.” This is not my intention. Some people are addicted to church and if they were to “come out” without the proper care and support systems in place, additional spiritual damage might be incurred. As withdrawal from alcohol without medical supervision is life threatening, so too, an exodus from the organized church at the present moment may be too shocking to the spiritual system of longterm “churchaholics.” Actually, it is wise NOT to come out until you hear the Holy Ghost for yourself. The problem is that most sheep within church walls for a considerable length of time are so deaf and so blind that they simply cannot hear and they cannot see.

Moreover, the enemy has built up a formidable stronghold by seducing them to heed and believe false doctrines or to become emotionally attached to pastors, buildings, church traditions, choir members, etc.. The god of this world has blinded them, almost beyond repair. (II Cor 4:3,4) Only God Himself can release the prey of the mighty and set free the lawfully captive. (Isaiah 49:24-26) In each case of spiritual blindness, prayer should beseech the Father based upon His mercy, grace and pardon. My job is simple. I preach righteousness and truth, both by mouth and on the printed page. That’s all I have to do. The Lord does His work of deliverance, and from time to time, allows me to share in His power.

I commit to sending you the truth through my books, videos and blogs and let the Spirit of Truth –aka the Holy Ghost open your spiritual ears to hear, to understand and to obey Him when He calls you out of Mystery Babylon. By His grace and mercy, I believe that He will restore your spiritual hearing and your spiritual sight, if the condition of your heart is sincere, meek and upright. You yourself have an unction from God to see and if you hunger and thirst after righteousness, I strongly believe that when the time is right, you will hear His call.

To simplify matters, here is a general overview of the organized church of today. There are two main sects of Christians: Catholics and Protestants. Within Protestantism, there are three main branches: the denominations, the non-denominations, and the word of faith/charismatic movement. The church of James from Atlanta’s youth falls under the category of a denomination, the Baptist Church. The second church that James and Michelle both describe is what is categorized as a word of faith, non-denominational charismatic church.

There are many denominations. There are a few denominations that are charismatic, ie. the pentecostal churches. There is one denomination that calls itself “full gospel Baptist.” It should be pointed out that every nondenominational church is not necessarily charismatic or word of faith. However, practically ALL word of faith churches are charismatic and therefore they have much in common with some denominational pentecostal churches.

So where should you attend church while you “watch and wait” for the Lord’s “new thing?” Good question. Everyone is not like me. As a watchman, I was actually called to stand alone. So this is just my opinion for those who have a different calling. My advice may be of some value to you, as it is based upon decades of experience with the denominational and the non-denominational, charismatic word of faith movement.

Point #3 In truth, I personally believe that the best option–the wisest choice–is to stay out of the organized church entirely, especially if you are a babe in Christ or one who is lost, but seeking Him.

However, if you are  a churchgoer and you are still attached or even addicted to “church”, then know this. By far, if you are attending a charismatic church, be it pentecostal, charismatic, or word of faith, you are not in a safe place.  All churches have become a dwelling place of demons!

I am also an advocate of home churches, of three, but  no more than 5 people.  Each home church should have a coordinator.  I will provide the coordinator with all of the tools necessary to feed the sheep each week in my online church called RESCUE. For more information, visit http://www.aboutrescue.com or call 888-818-1117.

Avoiding Curses and Plagues in 2012

There are many who practice a professing Christian religion who live under a curse because they have either added to or taken away from the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have found from our own experience that demons are having a field day with professing Catholics, Mormons,(Latter Day Saints) Jehovah Witnesses, Coptics, Christian Scientists and others. When you profess to be a Christian yet Jesus is not Lord and the Holy Spirit is not God in your so-called Christian faith, demons will use this fact against you as an occasion to rule in your life. The demons will be successful because you are practicing a religion that has “added to the gospel.” Others who claim to believe in Jesus Christ associate themselves with cultish groups such as freemasonry or participate in occult practices that are directly or even indirectly linked to the religious rights of non-Christian religions, ie. yoga, transcendental meditation, chanting, reincarnation and the like. In fact, some mainline denominational churches are rapidly embracing what is now called “Christian Yoga.”

To the Galatians, Paul declared it this way, “if any man preach any other gospel, other than what I have preached, let him be cursed.” (Galatians Ch.1:9) Two thousand years have passed since Paul’s rather serious proclamation. I am not a historian, but I would imagine that any religion professing to be Christian that either subtracts or adds to the gospel of Jesus Christ has reaped the fruit of this curse, from one generation to another. Today, there are countless people who are being oppressed and tormented by demons because they are preaching “another gospel.” In counseling, we will lead you to repentance once you have been enlightened. Demons will bow at the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth even among the heathen,–those who have never believed on Him.

Why? Because David declared it this way in Psalm 2. When Jesus Christ was raised from the dead, the Father turned to Him and said “Ask of me anything. and I will give to You, My Son, the heathen for your inheritance.” I believe that Jesus asked the Father to give Him the heathen. So if you are lost and do not have the Lord in your life, Jesus Christ is still your God, whether you believe in Him or not. The problem for you, though, is that even though He has you, you cannot receive Him until the Holy Ghost draws you to the cross and you repent as an unclean sinner. And since “you do not have Jesus”, demons will wipe up the dirty streets of the world with you and those assigned to you will destroy you, despite of the fact that Jesus owns you.

Since Jesus is the one with the keys to hell and death, He will be the one who will incarcerate you in hell for eternity in spite of the fact that He died for you. In fact, I can cast demons from you today and they WILL come out in fear of His name. Even so, Jesus said that they will come back with a fury seven fold stronger than your original state if you do not receive Him as your Lord. (Matthew 12:45) The good news of the gospel is that we can set you free in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth also. In fact, it is easier to set the heathen free from a non-religious demon than those who are worshipping a false “so-called Christian” god. Those who have experienced His power in setting them free will most often bow to His Lordship and become truly saved.

A word of warning. Just because you have not yet felt the ramifications of the curse, does NOT mean that you have escaped it. It may manifest at the end of your life or even in the lives of your children and grandchildren. For example, Christians in recovery are in danger of the curses and the plagues of the recovery communities teachings and principles about obtaining and maintaining sobriety through the “higher power” principle of 12 Steps. I suggest that you read a rather understandable and concise teaching from  the New Idolatry:

“Any doctrine or recovery principle that has broadened the concept og God to include gods or higher powers of one’s own choosing has added to and detracted from the word of God. As Paul warned the Galatians, this is the curse of idolatry.  In effect, the real danger for any professing Christian who is engaged in a 12 Step Program is the opening up of a demonic doorway of harassment and torment from evil entities.  Perhaps that explains why the un-religious maintain  their sobriety with less relapses than do religious churchgoers. For a professing Christian to give homage to a higher power other than Jesus Christ of Nazareth alone as the Mediator to the Father, is a practice inspired by Satan himself.” (pg.80)

Moreover, it has been my experience that religious and witchcraft demons are almost impossible to cast out because they require the captive to disavow the actions of not only their church families but also their own personal family. Most captives refuse to do so and as a consequence, they shall remain bound. Even so, what is impossible with man is possible with God. What you need to know is that God will give you grace, but as James points out, God resists the proud.

Freemasonry is so endemic in the culture and history of the entire organized church, that the plagues and curses associated with it often go un-noticed. As you draw near to God through the humility of repentance, you can cleanse your own hands if you will disavow both your Christian church and those family members who have transgressed through the practice of freemasonry and other forms of witchcraft that have either added to or taken away from the gospel of Jesus Christ. Such an admonition is made to those who enter every church who has added to or taken away from the gospel. For example, those in the word of faith movement have been adding to and taking away from the gospel for the last 3 decades with the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, and countless other doctrines and teachings. Denominational churches are known for accepting freemasonry, yoga, and forms of worship that counterfeit the Holy Ghost. If you have “been there and done that,” I warn you that the curse is near you. So draw near to God by humbling yourself and admitting your error, and God will give you grace and lift you up out of your bondage. ( James Chapter 4)

I plead the words of the Lord in Rev. Ch 18:4: “Come out of Her, My People, lest you be partakers of her sins and receive of Her plagues. What if Jesus is referring to the organized church?

Ministry In 2012

A fresco of a black Madonna and Jesus in Axum ...

 Are we headed for  the last season of God’s timetable before the Lord’s soon return?  How do we preach in this season? I believe that the preaching of the gospel to the world has already been done. The truth is that many who call themselves “God’s people” have anchored their faith in the preaching of a distorted gospel. Today I received a phone call from a man living on the west coast who was calling about his 93-year-old Catholic mother, a recent stroke victim hospitalized on the east coast. The son requested if someone from my church would make a hospital visit, in order to “lead her to salvation.” The son proudly let me know that he is a pentecostal and that he doesn’t believe that his Catholic mother is saved.The mother has not lost her mental faculties, but the stroke has left her without speech. I said to the son, “I don’t lead anybody into salvation for I don’t have the power to save anyone, and salvation is according to election by the sovereign will of God. If your mother is called to salvation, then the Lord will find a way to save her. My concern is that your mother has heard and believes on “another gospel.” The son was so churched, that it never crossed his mind that perhaps he too was not saved. As for his sick and dying mother,  how does one to proceed?  Going to her hospital bed and informing this aged Catholic that she has been worshipping the fake Jesus and a demon called Mother Mary might actually send her over the edge.

 I rest assured that if this mother is one of God’s elect, He will certainly save her. I have learned that one of the primary principles of ministry today is to be aware of your own limitations and not “rush in” on false faith. For two millennium, the word of God has been preached from one end of the world to the other since the Day of Pentecost. The gospel is a very simple message: Jesus coming out of heaven to earth, born of a virgin, crucified for our sins, died and was raised from the dead, was seen of many, ascended and, praise God, He is coming back. Therefore, part one of the Great Commission is practically accomplished. This is the gospel in a nutshell, a word that is published every Christmas and every Easter, in spite of Santa Claus and the Bunny.

I am a clear example of an atheist who had never heard the word preached from a pulpit or from a TV evangelist, never even-handed a tract nor had I ever opened a bible. If an atheist could be drawn to Jesus just based upon the word that was preached through the holidays of Christmas and Easter, ANYONE CAN BE!!! This is the reason why the enemy is taking a strong stand against keeping Jesus as the reason for both seasons. Unfortunately, it is not surprising that the church is in the pitiful condition that it is in today because of a gross neglect of part two of the Great Commission which is “go forth and cast out demons!” Therefore, I write to the faithful of the church at Philadelphia, and exhort you to remember the words of Paul to Timothy: “In the last days, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.” (I Timothy 4:1)

As the word of God has foreshadowed in various scriptures, seducing spirits are thriving in the organizational church today in the form of the religious demon. So beware, oh, precious ones! Beware of demons that will come in your midst and try to hide in your sheepfolds, whose mission is to bring down the true Body of Christ. To be successful, Satan must be very deceptive. In one of His parables, the Lord announced that in the midst of His planting wheat in His field, an enemy came along and planted imitation wheat called “tares” or weeds.

Consequently, the Lord declared that toward the end of the age, there would come a point in time when the imitation wheat and the true wheat would look identical. (Matthew 13:37-43) I believe that the objective of ministry during endtimes is connected to the Lord’s coming again. As John the Baptist preached repentance and “prepare ye the way of the Lord” to unveil His first coming, I believe that ministry in the endtimes is about preparing the people for the Lord’s second coming. So, how do we do that? I don’t think I can state any better what I have already written in “the New Idolatry.” I have found that the demonstration of power begins at the cross. The cross of Jesus Christ is the place where we must submit our human nature. Not just the bad but the good also.

The ones who demonstrate the most power are the ones who have suffered the most—the ones who have sinned the most—the ones who have been forgiven of the most. They tend to be most humble. However, people who have always had it good, been the most acceptable to the world, people pleasers who have adapted to a success model based upon the world’s standards—these are the people who are the most difficult to demonstrate God’s power. They are too filled up with their own power. Their own thoughts. Their own ways. Their own abilities. What I hope my testimony speaks to is that it is not just the bad things that must go to the cross. It is also the things that are considered good about ourselves that are the most dangerous. Like Paul, we’ve got to cry out, “I don’t get mixed up in nothin except Jesus Christ and Him crucified!” (pg 202) Once a Christian has been dealt with—broken by God at the cross—and has emerged a servant, then he or she is ready to participate in ministry.

I believe that in this hour, the primary work of service is to undeceive those who believe that “they already know.” Once those who have been deluded and confused have been enlightened by truth, a deliverance may still be necessary and so the casting out of demons is a very important ministry in these times. Actually, I perceive ministry today as giving out nuggets of truth. Sometimes the scope of what can be confronted with captives to deception is very limited. In my deliverance counseling practice as outlined in my third book,Faces of the Religious Demon,” I have found that the Lord is allowing some of His people to be tormented so that they can be shaken from the deep spiritual sleep in which they so proudly and boastfully rest. Unfortunately, the spiritual arrogance and pride of those who are seeking prominence and a name for themselves in Christiandom are in serious trouble because their spiritual arrogance and pride has become deeply entrenched in their hearts and minds.

So in 2012, I am prepared that scores of people shall refuse to hear God’s warnings coming from an author whom they may consider “a nobody.” Armed with this knowledge, I am no longer distressed or stressed when I am rejected by them. I realize that namedroppers and wannabees have to be broken because in their proud state, many are unable to humble themselves enough to even discern the signs of the times, as they think that they are going to build a personal Christian kingdom that they can pass on to their children and grandchildren as many notable mega preachers have already done. So other than for those who enter into counseling or mentoring with Pam Sheppard Ministries, my approach to ministry as an author is to focus on at least one nugget of truth, either by telephone or by email, by a book or a blog and then “move on” and let the Holy Ghost lead that person into the essentials of a deeper truth. For various reasons, I have found that the resistance to the truth by most captives is the result of their religious development overtime. Like a spider forms a web, religious demons on assignment have weaved an intricate, subliminal spiritual web—a longstanding strategy that has progressively hindered a captive’s ability to face this or her own Laodicean blindness “head on.”

So for me, ministry in 2012 is to drop a nugget of truth on the world-wide web,  “plant a truth seed” in 1000 words or less— and then leave the plowing, the weeding, the watering and even the harvesting up to God, and  keep on steppin. Sometimes you will find that the captive does not like the style or manner of the messenger even more than the content of the message. In such cases, when I find people who will not acknowledge my words because they do not like either my style or my tone, I strategically plan my exit. As they stubbornly cling to their own ideas of how they believe that God should teach them through the organized church where they have been a member of longstanding, I “cut to the chase.” I have learned to focus my energy and go right to the heart of the matter. I will certainly avoid throwing scripture back and forth as in a contest, but I will pointedly ask a few salient questions like, “If you are really saved, then why is the devil having his way with you? Why don’t you have any joy or peace in the Holy Ghost? Why are you not assured of your salvation? Why so much condemnation, shame and guilt” Are you confused? Is confusion of God or is it of the devil? Then I sit back, wait on a response, and refuse to take either a defensive or an offensive position. In other words, I present a nugget of truth, and I don’t stick around to see whether or not that nugget was received. I just “keep it movin.” Sometimes the Lord will let me know that “the seed got planted in good ground.” Sometimes, He does not. This is the key. Ministry is the Lord’s thing. Some plant, some water, but it is the Holy Ghost Who gives the increase.

Fallen Angels and Demons, Yesterday and Today

 Religious demons are not human, nor are they divine. They are simply fallen angels who began calling themselves ascended masters around the mid 20th century. In open communication with their occult disciples, we Christians have been sleepwalking in the spirit. Tenaciously focused on the contents of our own personal lives, the so-called “ascended masters” have been secretly planting their seeds and working diligently toward the fulfillment of their sinister agenda. The ascended masters are in the service of their master, Sanat Kamura, —Lucifer, the highest fallen angel that we all know as Satan or “the devil.” While the higher ranking demonic have been setting the stage for “their final act” of the endtimes, rank and file foot soldiers in Satan’s army were busy distracting all of us from the real issues.

Though these same demons were diligently working to stop the birth of Christ 2000 years ago, as they failed then, they will fail again. In spit of the fact that nothing or no one could stop the Lord’s first coming, there are those who believe that various conditions must be met before the Lord returns to earth, this time not as a babe but as a Lion with a symbolic rod of iron in His hand and a flaming sword bursting through His mouth. What a day, what a day! The bible calls it “the Day of the Lord.” In the first coming of the Lord, the angels of God played a significant role in preparing those involved for the Lord’s birth with special visitations to Mary, Joseph, and the father of John the Baptist, Zechariah.

The book of Revelation shows us angelic involvement prior to the second coming as well. Demons were also involved in the first coming, as they inspired Herod and his soothsayers to predict the signs of the time, and to conduct a relentless search for the baby Jesus by killing all male newborns from among the Israelites. Prior to the Lord’s second coming, the word of God suggests that both and demons will once again be extremely “active.” We will need the grace and the wisdom of God to be able to discern God’s from the demons who work on Satan’s behalf.
