Christian Seers Who Channel: Recognizing a False Prophet

Pastor Pam Sheppard writes:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

false prophets5

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

Minister Kellie Reveals That Depression Is A Demon!

Minister Kellie

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

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

Minister Kellie BEAT Depression

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

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

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

THE GOALS OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING

Your spiritual life is like a journey.  You are on the broad road, and SEW Mentoring   will lead you to the narrow way.  As you journey through the valleys to find your mountaintops, our trained ministers  are with you as a “travel guide” so to speak.  You have become accustomed to travelling alone, and perhaps with out even a map.  You have been walking for a long time and your bondage may have  brought you to a crossroad. 

 The first stage of  basic Christian mentoring is geared toward helping you make your own decisions about how much truth you are willing to receive to obtain freedom. The more you resist truth, the longer you will journey on the broad way, that leads to destruction.

CALL 518-477-5759

THEOBJECTIVES OF DELIVERANCE MENTORING

We have found that most Christians who need deliverance mentoring are blinded by spiritual ignorance.  Our goal at SEW is to help you obtain clear spiritual vision as we coach and train you to distinguish between good and evil. 

The goal of basic Christian mentoring  is to help you to be engaged, encouraged and enlightened  in your mind. As such, our objective at  is to strengthen your spirit so that you will be able to recognize God’s will and choose it above your own. 

 However, the goal of deliverance mentoring  is to arm you to recognize and effectively deal with  the activity of the enemy in your life.  Deliverance mentoring is broken down into 4 components:

 A SEARCH FOR COSMIC EVIL DOORWAYS: These are areas  in a person’s life which are giving or have given cosmic entities the right to enter or remain in the person. Asking Jesus to “come into your heart, a counterfeit birth, a background in the occult, unconfessed sins, ungodly soul ties, unforgiveness, holding cursed possessions (occult rings, etc.) and so forth can give demons a right to inhabit and torment a person. These legal grounds can be  removed by facing the truth,  repentance, renunciation, extending forgiveness, etc.

THE EXAMINATION OF STRONGHOLDS: These are basically incorrect thinking patterns in your mind. For example, if  you think God is angry with you because you have committed the unpardonable sin, then you will feel like He is. This stronghold may open you to panic attacks, paranoia  or obsessive compulsive behavior. Strongholds are torn down in each mentoring session  as a trained minister and mentee work together to reprogram your mind to think differently. You might say that the SEW approach to a stronghold is to enhance critical thinking capabilities and simple commonsense. Together the mentor and the mentee destroy the strength of the debilitating thought.

RESTORATION OF YOUR SOUL: Renewal is often required when counseling a person who has been abused, raped or has been exposed to a traumatic experience. Becoming whole  is a work of the Holy Spirit and is received as a captive is  delivered from  the inner hurt and pain from past experiences. Then   the Holy Spirit  comes in and heal those wounds. Forgiveness often plays a part in this releasing process. Oftentimes, self-forgiveness needs to be received as the captive may be   holding things against him or herself which must be released. Once truth is known and accepted, frrdom is obtained.

EXPULSION OF THE ENEMY Confronting  cosmic entities directly  is where either devils or demons are  driven out of the client by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the power of the Holy Ghost. After success in the first three stages,  expulsion is often un-necessary. However, in various cases, direct confrontation of the powers of darkness cannot be avoided.  At this stage, the client MUST sign and notarize an informed consent form called the DDF, the Deliverance Disclaimer Form. There are no exceptions. 

Dedicated Ministers who themselves were captives  have been trained to conduct mentoring sessions. Visit our page called SEW Ministers to read a brief bio of 7 of them. I recommend that you give SEW mentor a one month trial and you will not be sorry. www.pamsheppard.com/online_ministers_available

Cultural Witchcraft:Breaking the Power of a Controlling Mother by Minister Francine

Is your mother a controlling mother? Do you turn into a four year old every time your mother is in view? Have you been spending your life, trying to please a manipulative mother, who is never satisfied, no matter what you do?

Does your mother try to run your life, because she thinks she knows what’s best for you, your children, AND your spouse? If you answered ” yes ” to any of the above questions, your sweet Mom might just have a controlling spirit. This article will usher you into the manipulating, suffocating world of mothers, who are dead set on controlling their children.

What does the Bible say?

Controlling Mother

A controlling mother may simply quote the Bible if she feels you slipping from her influence, manipulating the word of God to control you. The word of God commands us to honor our father and our mother. But if a dominating mother is using this scripture to manipulate and control your actions and decisions, something is wrong.
 Controlling mothers forget that the scripture also says that fathers (and mothers) should not provoke their children to wrath. Even so, we know from scripture that those who practice manipulation and domination are practicing witchcraft. Not only that, but their spirits are rebellious. Ask yourself if your controlling mother’s plans for you, line up with God’s plans for you. In other words, you can’t live your life according to the plans of others.
Consider This…
There are all kinds of people in the world, just as there are all kinds of mothers. Not every mother is godly. Not every mother is saved. And not every mother is emotionally stable. You’ll have to examine the behavior of your own mother, to see if it lines up with scripture. For example, the word of God says that we are to leave our mothers, and cling to our spouse. Therefore, when controlling mothers insist on ruling over their children, they are in error. You love your mother. Therefore, you may want to defer to her, even if  she’s controlling.
 Yet, the word of God opposes such a choice. We often forget that if the Son has made us free, we are free indeed. So then, why live  a life of misery when trying to comply? Why obey a domineering controlling mother if her demands  are out of sinc with your own salvation?  Trying to please a controlling spirit, no matter who they are is really sin. It may be hard to wrap your head around this, but you must ask yourself whether your mother’s bias plans agree with Gods plans for you.
If your mother insists on ruling your life, your children’s lives and your husband’s life, she is rebuking your adulthood. Such a mother, wants you under her coat tails.
 A controlling mother is selfish, and unconcerned with how you feel. A controlling mother, has no qualms about hurting your feelings. A controlling mother has developmental problems of her own, for whatever reason. Yet, you can still honor an emotionally abusive mother, while protecting your own emotional health. For example, you can distance and/or limit your time with her. If a controlling mother refuses to acknowledge her domineering ways, you have your emotional health to consider.
Forgive Your Mother and Be Wise in Your Dealings with her…
If you have suffered in the hands of a controlling mother, know that you did not make her this way. It is not your responsibility to try and change her. Only God can soften hearts. You will end up with additional emotional stress, when trying to change a controlling spirit. Controlling spirits need deliverance. Perhaps your mother suffered under the controls of her own mother. Perhaps she did not. Either way, it’s completely useless to argue with spirits. Seek peace and pursue it. Sometimes, the peace you seek, will come by seperation. If you continue to put up with binding controls from a mother who dismisses your adulthood, peace will flee away from you. Your world will consist of drama, confusion and shame. Have you ever felt quilty for standing up to a fault finding mother? If you have, believe me, I know what you are talking about.
What About the Cultural Differences…
I had a very interesting conversation with Pam Sheppard regarding culture, and controlling mothers. I was never one to say that certain cultures had certain characteristics. But I find that I was wrong about this. Pam and I briefly discussed how culture plays a part in the way mothers interact with their children. Pam and I are from West Indian parentage, and there are major differences in the way we were brought up, in comparison to our American friends.
 In addition, I was born in England, so there are some difference in my own approach to life. I tend to display the British over politeness. Anyway, Pam really shed some light on the topic. My eyes were opened! My own mother was a very strong figure in my life. She had an Island pride, and forcefulness about herself. Her personality scared me, when I was a young girl. I noticed this with all the females in my family. They all seemed to lead their households with an iron fist, with no apology to husband, or anyone else.  They also  followed the age old adage, that children should be seen and not heard. To say that Island parents are old school is an understatement.
Find out more…
To find out More on this and the topic of culture and controlling mothers, my best advice is that you read Pam Sheppard’s books on the topic. Knowledge is power, and Pam has over 30 years experience that you can draw on. Might I add, that your peace of mind, and emotinal health is a priority. Okay then, I hope you join this blog. Shoot me a comment below. I’d love to hear your story!!!

WHEN DEMONS TORMENT A CHRISTIAN

When I was rather deep into the occult, New Age world in the early 70’s, looking back now, I realize that I was under severe demonic torment.  The enemy tends to torment those that he knows that God intends to save.  I was steeped into the occult for 3 years, when like a whirlwind, the Holy Ghost scooped me up and caused me to be born again on a Monday, March 29, 1977 at 4pm in my living room.  Once I was born again, the torment completely stopped.  However, the fake Jesus didn’t stop.  He simply changed his tactics from torment to  demonic deception, which is yet another story.

I did not suffer from the torment, because I have a kind of “Star Trek” type of personality and my rational yet flexible mind did not realize that the fallen angels were trying to send me crazy.  I’m sure I caused them a great deal of frustration when I didn’t flip out, get overwhelmed with fear, and allow the cheese to slip off of my cracker.  I was like a child watching a magician pull a rabbit out of a hat, and in joyous glee holler, “MORE! MORE!!!!”

Once the fallen angel assigned to me threatened me and warned: “If you go to a certain place, you will die on the elevator.” Well, bold and brash me took the challenge and left my apt and stood by the elevator, waiting for the car to go down. When the door opened, there was no car, and I watched one of the ropes fall from above, down the elevator shaft.  Did I go back to my apartment  and shunder in fear?  No.  I walked down the stairs in the stairwell and went where I intended to go without any harm coming to me.

It was things like that which  I experienced as a natural course of events for 3 years.  I remember that  they tried to flip me out by sending me a message through  automatic writing, “Pam, we have a surprise for you.  When you go home, go straight to your refrigerator.” I did so.  There, on the top shelf was my iron.” Did I flip out? No. I was excited and not afraid.  I said, “Wow, can you guys do that again?”

When fallen angels walked into me and spoke through my mouth, while my spirit was standing on the other side of the room looking at me, was I afraid?  No.  I asked for more.  Any time I asked, they did not come.  When they entered me, I was always caught by surprise.  I have since discovered that they could not come when I called them because God would not allow it. Once I became born again 34 years ago, all of this kind of thing stopped cold!

Consequently, it truly baffled me when so many tormented churchgoing folk who claimed to be saved, continue to seek  me for deliverance counseling on the web, since Dec. 2002.  What I have seen and worked with is absolutely astounding. Several of the accounts are detailed in 3 of my books, mainly in “Faces of the Religious Demon.”

The examples are numerous, steadily growing in number.  Here are but a few.  A churchgoer reported that she had to read a tiny bible because her big bible was used as a weapon to beat her in the head with it.  A fallen angel took her own arm and used it to beat herself.  Another could  NOT read the bible out loud.  When she attempted to, the fallen angel used her mouth to scream out blashemies and foul language. Another saw excrement over her food, which was not actually there and she became obsessive-compulsive.  Another was forced to eat out of garbage cans.  Another grabbed the steering wheel of my car when I picked her up from the bus station.  I was driving on a highway at 65 miles an hour.

The list of torments goes on and on with people who claim to be saved, most speak in tongues,  and practically all of them  attended church regularly.

Know this.

Fallen angels should not be able to enter a born again person.  When they can, then they are in control. No saved person ought to be hearing voices constantly.  So if you are in demonic torment, God is allowing the torment as a blessing to open your spiritually blind eyes to the fact that YOU ARE NOT SAVED!

The good news is that the torment itself is a sign that God DOES plan to save you.  You just need for that religious demon sent by the fake Jesus to be case out of you SO THAT HE CAN SAVE YOU.
