Religious Demons Don’t Discriminate Between Saved and Unsaved

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

Some may think that to be born again stops all deception. If you have been reading my books and blogs or watching my videos, then you realize that when I was in the occult, I dealt with spirits outright. I had what was called spirit guides or guardians to whom I communicated every day. I called, they answered. They called, I answered. Once I got born again, the spirits changed their tactics, to try to cause me to believe I was communicating with God and for 25 years, they were successful.

I REPEAT. RELIGIOUS SPIRITS DECEIVED ME AS A SAVED CHRISTIAN FOR 25 years!!!!

First, an entity imitating God sent me three dreams that told me the same thing. I was urged to find Rev. Smith. Pushed and compelled by unseen forces, finally I followed their instructions and I found him. Immediately, I joined his church, where I entered into ministry two years later.

This is the key point to remember. I WAS BORN AGAIN!!! I followed the spirit’s guidance, deceived into believing that I was being led of the Holy Ghost. Instead, I was being led by a religious demon whose intent was to get me to join that evil, sinful church, pastored by Rev. Smith, a down low Jamaican warlock. Once a minister in training, I became in bondage to a wicked, corrupt international denomination.

The purpose of my personal example is to make a general point.

If the enemy can dupe and deceive the saved, what do you think religious demons can do with those who have had a false conversion who still believe they are saved but they are not?

Just because a person is born again does not make them “deception proof.”

The Lord would not have warned His disciples to “take heed and be not deceived” if there was no danger that they COULD be deceived. It does not matter how many things you are or were deceived about. In my case, for 25 years, I was deceived about a few things in comparison to what other churchgoers were deceived about. Yet the Holy Spirit did not release me from the deception until He was ready to. He simply stepped in when He chose the time to be right and started unravelling things.

What I remain cautious and watchful about is this. Just because I am undeceived NOW, does not mean that it is impossible for me to be deceived again. For me to think otherwise would be both proud and arrogant and I do not want God to resist me. Humility is a key factor to freedom from deception.

So what is deception?

Deception has to do with thoughts in the mind. Simply put, we believe a lie or a half truth. The worst of it are the assumptions we hold dear, for example, that the institutional church is the bride of Christ when she is not. The Bride is not a building or an organization. The Bride is not just one generation who goes to church. The Bride is spiritual, consisting of all born again believers who have lived and died believing on The Lord. So with even one wrong assumption like my example, deception will continue.

So The truth is that if you start off with even one little wrong assumption, everything else falls like dominos.

As I am reading some of the works of some ministers who have a decent portion of truth in their arsenal, I am watching how can those who started out with truth have fallen to deception. It is amazing how the enemy has used the truth truth they began with and led them into a lie. What happens is that the enemy takes advantage of our misconception of truth. He uses the weaknesses of our personalities to lead us into believing what suits us best.

This realization is humbling me quite a bit. I believe that once we are given truth, we have to seek God in prayer to help us not to misunderstand truth for our conception of truth may cause us to err.

So my question is “how do we make ourselves fool-proofed to deception?”

I think we can all answer this from experience. We begin by examining how we got deceived, what was it about us that caused us to be open to the deception, and how did we come out of it?

Consider the work of a grifter, a scam artist in search of a mark. The mark will have a glaring character flaw that the grifter will recognize as being perfect to the productivity and success of the scam. Greed, manifested as a desire to get something that he does not deserve at the expense of others or the system at large. Also the mark’s pride in his own personal sophistication and prowess will stop him from exposing the scam to the police, for fear of looking foolish.

Religious fallen angels and demons operate like grifters and scam artists before they implement their grand deception. Better to know ourselves better than they know us.

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:-

Church-hopping Won’t Help When the State Controls the Church!

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

We know from scriptures that foretold what is now history of the need for separation of church and state.  the state is the political world.  We also know  that Satan is the god  of all world systems. In fact, the greatest temptation against the Lord was Satan’s offer of dominion over the world to Jesus as a bonus if only  the Lord would  worship him.  So separation of church and state is an absolute mandate.  Consequently,  it should not surprise us that the coming together of church and state is a top priority for the devil.

Although we are not privy to exactly when the Lord Jesus Christ will return to earth, scripture DOES  provide a rather complete picture of the state of both religious and political affairs of the season,  with many metaphorical and physical  signs and conditions. Although we may disagree with the order of endtime signs, the symbolic understanding of both Jezebel and the Harlot of the book of Revelation universally represent the institutional church. The IC is “that woman Jezebel who calls herself a prophetess.  She teaches and seduces the servants of God—the elect—to commit fornication with strange  gods.” (Rev 2:20)

SO Jezebel is the apostate church. So is the harlot.

When we read that the harlot, or whore who rides on the back of the Beast, the interpretation is that the IC will seek to gain power offered by the political system.  The beast is the Antichrist. FOr decades in  our times, church leaders have sought and gained favor with local politicians by allowing candidates into their pulpits to promote themselves. In fact, pastors have successfully balanced  on a legal tightrope, trying not to openly break the law by  publicly endorsing any “favorites.”

The 1954 Johnson amendment legislates that any tax-exempt group can lose its exemption if it is found to have endorsed or actively opposed a candidate for political office. Actually, for decades now, the IC’s receipt of tax exempt status is in itself  the blurring of the lines of separation between church and state.  Yet just a bit less than 4 months into his presidency, Trump signed an executive order that  allows church leaders to openly endorse any politician of their choice, from the pulpit, now fully unhindered from riding the back of the beast.

This is just the beginning.

Expectancy, watchfulness and preparedness must be our way of life in this the 11 th hour.  If you have been paying attention to the news, there is evidence that the newly elected  administration in the U.S  quietly has enhanced the already blurred lines of religious and political separation,  particularly among white charismatic Christians and those who are bigots and racists.  What these bible thumpers have overlooked by their prideful, ambitious patronage is the biblical warning that in the tribulation, the  governments of this world shall turn on the institution called “church”  and suddenly destroy Her.

Nevertheless, the Lord comforted us 2000 years ago, by saying “Fear not!”

The time will come, when the Beast is in full power, that the institutional church will be taken over by the state and ultimately destroyed.

Where will YOU be at that time?

Churc-hopping?

It won’t help.  You don’t want to have your name and address on any church roles in Endtimes.

Best to come out NOW!  RESCUE is here to help you plan your transition, make your escape on the down low, without a lot of drama.  Either call us at 888-818-1117 or send an email to getreadyforthelord@gmail.com

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.

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.

In Search For a Compatible Soul

I am meditating today on the words of the Apostle Paul about forgetting what is behind and pressing forward to the mark or one’s ministerial target.

Next month, I will celebrate 33 years in ministry. Actually, after 25 years, The Lord revealed to me that I needed to put the entire thing on the dung heap.—-healing, deliverance, pulpit preaching, pastoring, prison ministry, charismatic teachings which I had ingested into my spirit for decades —all were put in my personal garbage truck and taken to my spiritual dumping ground.

Now if I was a person prone to the bondage of public opinion, this drastic change would have been quite a difficult task. For me, it was easy primarily because I believe that I heard from God Himself. My thoughts at the time? Well, it’s YOUR house Lord so YOU build it. I found out the truth of The Lord’s words, for truly, His yoke is easy.

I think not feeling like I am important is helpful. Take the lawyer who got OJAY free. Right now, I can’t even remember his name. I remember, “if the glove don’t fit, then acquit!” The man was popular, now dead and gone and I can’t remember his name. Oh yes. His name comes to me now. Johnny Cochran.

So not being famous like Johnny, I like to think of myself as a nobody. I accept the fact that people are not watching me because they really don’t care if I live or die much less what I believe. So negative comments on my blog or on social networks no longer phase me. I do not expect everyone to either understand me or embrace what I believe. If I have time, I skim through them and delete or trash as I move forward.

This morning, the enemy gave me a dream that featured an array of people attacking me because I posted something they did not like. Mixed into that dream were people from my former church, my last job, and I was being personally attacked because of my posts. In retaliation, something negative about me was posted behind a glass bulletin board. So I would have had to either post my comment outside of the glass, where anyone could have come and taken it down or simply smashed the glass. As I awoke, I was considering “how to get behind the glass” to post my rebuttal.

Well, the truth of the matter is that I am no longer under the authority of the denomination or my former employer. I can POST what I want. And I don’t need to post any rebuttals. I am not interested in what my adversary’s agents think about me. On that score, I have an “oh well” attitude.

What I have learned to do with people, places and things is “pivot.” To pivot is to make a quick, balanced turn because of the steadiness of my feet. Therefore, It was easy for me to “pivot” out of the institutional church as a former pastor there because I was never blinded by their rose colored glasses. My feet were never really cemented into church ground, even though I was among them for 25 years.

I thought to myself “Well Pam. if it ain’t workin, let it go and start over.” Simple.

Yet another simple revelation I have ingested that keeps me from being concerned not only about what people THINK of me but also what people WRITE or SAY about me is this:

I am searching for compatible souls. my search for them is really a needle in the haystack kind of experience. I am going to run into MORE people who are NOT my targets than I will people who are. So to reach a few people, I have to shove through the dung heap, the garbage dump of religiosity and sin where loads of folk reside. So I ignore the shit of others to reach my “compatible souls.”

When I find the “compatible souls,” I realize that some will be covered in filth. My job is to help them clean themselves off, while keeping myself free from whatever personal crap they try to dump on me.

If it turns out that I have been working with the wrong folk, people who refuse my help either passively or aggressively, I let them go without a struggle as I continue to walk through unclean places, looking for the rest of the “compatible souls.”

My goal once I find a compatible soul is to get to know that person and to prepare him or her for deliverance completely online. I have grown to like online better than face to face for a lot of reasons, the subject of yet another post. But here is the deal with online work. if that person cannot comment in my personal and private blog called RESCUE, or he or she does not let me get to know them through emails or at least once a week telephone counseling, then I let that person go without a lot of debate.

I don’t have either the time or the energy to debate in an effort to try to hold on to anyone who demonstrates in their behavior and attitude that I am not the one for them to connect with.

I shake the dust from my feet and keep moving forward in my search for yet another compatible soul.

It’s like business, cause it ain’t personal. I hold no grudges.

Could you be “a compatible soul? ” If so, check us out at 518-477-5759, rescueonfb@icloud.com or visit http://www.aboutrescue.com

Why YOU Should Leave the Church Part 2

When Pastor Pam was led out of the Denomination she was ordained in and served in for 25 years, she waited  3 years for the Lord to show her where to go to resume her ministry. She had no idea  the Lord had no intentions to send her to a church service again, until  He spoke to her in 2007. While Pam waited to hear from Him, she wrote 3 books. After the Lord spoke, she wrote 4 more books and has begun to publish other authors. To review the books, click here.

Why You Should Leave the Church, Part 1

It is certainly not easy to leave the organized church, even when you have been spiritually abused by her.  This is part one of a series of videos—a testimony shared by a minister of 30 years whom the Lord led out. The full testimony of Rev. Pamela Sheppard can be found in her profound and enlightening book “Come Out of Her, God’s People: Don’t Receive Her Plagues.”
