More on Worshipping the FAKE JESUS

Writer: Tee

People who worship the Fake Jesus (Jesus Sananda Immanuel), MOST OF WHOM ARE MOST CHURCHGOING FOLKS WHO CLAIM TO BE SAVED, are by far, the MOST DIFFICULT to reach. Why? Because he has them so fooled that they actually think that the Jesus they are serving is the true Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and NOBODY CAN TELL THEM DIFFERENT. With all of his trickery, they don’t realize that they are serving a religious counterfeit, and often become heavily offended when their salvation is challenged.

Sananda is so clever that he uses what works with people: miracles, signs, wonders, warm-fuzzy feelings, and a LACK OF FAITH IN THE TRUTH. He preys on a person’s desperation for seeing to believe, since he knows that they have no faith. Faith on the power of the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the most powerful weapon we have against the enemy. If he can steal your faith, he can win you over.

The more allegiance you have to Sananda, the more he can block you from seeing the truth, which can therefore block your salvation. When I had a false conversion, I did not make an invitation to Sananda. If I did, I would have been in demonic torment. I suppose that because of the fact that I never engaged in any practices that had me inviting Jesus into my heart, and therefore had no demons. So my salvation therefore was not blocked. It was easy for me to receive the truth, and I did not become offended when Pam challenged my salvation.

The more I heard Pam preach the gospel to me, the more I began to see it, and the more I wanted even more truth. My FAITH on the power of the cross and resurrection was being developed. Once I received that faith, the Holy Spirit was able to do His work!

Anyone who has said the sinners prayer, prayed Jesus into their heart, or somehow engaged in a practice that involved calling on Jesus or chanting for Jesus to come to them is at risk of being demonized. YOU DID NOT ENCOUNTER THE REAL JESUS CHRIST!!! Why you ask? Because Jesus Christ is not a spirit hovering around, waiting for us to beckon him. He is sitting at the right hand of the father in HUMAN FORM.

When Jesus Christ resurrected, he appeared before Mary Magdalene and other disciples to show them this very fact, so that they can see that he came back to life in his own body, and then ascended to heaven in that body. Yet this one very important aspect of the gospel is being watered down and dispelled all throughout the organized church!!!! Why? Because the enemy knows that people are so caught up in lusting after supernatural experiences that they will even ignore the very truth in order to get their supernatural fix. Think about it: how often do people go to church talking about “the presence,” and how much they want to “experience God?” FOR WHAT???? It’s all about THEM!!! It’s all about SELF-EDIFICATION. What in the world does that have to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ? NOTHING.

People lack faith in the power of God, so they lust after the supernatural in order to find a reason or a way to believe in his power…when the power that they are seeking after is actually the power of the devil…nothing different than what psychics and mediums do…just in a different environment.

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

My Experience with the Black Church

Amy’s posts about her experience with the Charismatic Black Church led me to contemplate on my experience with the Denominational/Traditional black church.

Growing up in Harlem as a child of the ’40’s, the Lord protected me from the black church and from religion. Now that I have entered into deliverance counseling with tormented Christian clients, I understand why. Religiosity and the present day church has become seized demonic territory. Most of those who seek me out for deliverance were raised in church from birth. My West Indian parents sent me to Sunday school alone. As a result, I was able to play hooky every Sunday without once getting caught by my family.

I did not enter the religious system called church until I was already 2 years saved and 35 years old. It was a strange, uncomfortable world for me where I had to learn to “swim with the sharks.” I studied the songs, the mannerisms, all of the accoutrements of “churchyism.” Yet, I never really belonged because I had no church history to stand on among people who could claim several generations of a relationship with Her.. So even though I entered ministry in 1981, I remained a root in dry ground for the next 25 years, an unwanted stepchild.

When the Lord called me out in Sept. 2003, He didn’t tell me EVERYTHING. He simply warned, “Pam, you are a candle, hidden under a bed in this place. If you stay here, I can’t use you. But don’t leave on your own. Let them PUT you out!”

I had no idea what He was talking about as I had been a preacher in good standing for 24 years then and all was at peace. However, it didn’t take long. An unexpected enemy surfaced whom the Lord used to cause the leadership to remove my name from their rolls. The day before, I saw in a dream that like John the Baptist, I was being spiritually beheaded. The deed was done on June 25th, 2004 and I was pushed outside of the camp, waiting for the Lord to send me to another church within another denomination or sect.

I waited for two years and on the third year, the Lord spoke. I was setting up a road trip to several churches to train their leaders on deliverance when I was asked a question. “Pam, would you put curtains up at the windows of a condemned building?” Raised in a ghetto surrounded by boarded up buildings created quite a vivid image. I immediately answered, “No!”

Then the voice said, “Pam, training church leaders according to your plan is like putting up curtains at the windows of a condemned building.” Needless to say, I cancelled the trip. Simply put, I was told that the church was already judged but I refused to believe it. So I went on a search that evolved into a study of church history. I figured if the church was already judged, history would reveal it.

That is what the Fake Jesus and the New Idolatry is all about.

How False Doctrines Opened Church Doors to Satan

     I   believe that it was  the traditional congregation’s invitation, of “opening the doors of the church,” that  ushered in  countless demons into the visible church system.  The founding fathers of Methodism  instituted a superior practice of placing those who seek to escape the wrath that is to come  on a probationary  membership status. The founding fathers of Methodism were wise enough to not only create a procedure to  ensure a bona fide salvation but also to protect the body from fellowship with unbelievers.  However, over time, the full enforcement of this practice became ineffective, as people were brought into permanent church status without having manifested fruits of salvation.  I personally believe that when converts can demonstrate that they are truly disciples of the Lord, then we can fellowship with them as brethren, and not before. 

       Yet another open door to the religious demon is the coined spiritual phrases.  A  Christian idiom most frequently expressed is  “the Lord led me.”  In a book called “Unholy Devotion,” the author aptly warns of the danger of spiritualizing:

 

   At first glance the phrase sounds quite spiritual, but a close examination of Scripture reveals that it is not always biblical. On several occasions the phrase is used by or to describe false prophets or deceptive people. Jacob deceived his father by spiritualizing issues. Esau, Jacob’s brother, had just gone hunting. Too quickly, it seemed, Jacob, claiming to be Esau, brought the killed game to his father. “How did you find game so quickly?” Isaac asked. Having usurped Esau’s place, Jacob lied to his sick, blind father. But notice Jacob’s very ‘spiritual’ response: ‘The Lord your God gave me success.” (Gen27:20) Jacob was playing dangerous games, spiritualizing in order to manipulate someone he knew would believe such words. Jacob wasn’t a false cult leader or prophet; he was God’s own chosen servant”.

Christians often think that the seeds of heresy are found only in cults and in off-beat sects of Christianity. But John, in his first letter, and Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, reminded us that heretical teachers are often found within the church itself. Jesus notes that the dormant seeds of heresy can be buried in the lawns of the church. In Matthew 13, Jesus tells a parable of the kingdom of heaven: The enemy sowed sees within this kingdom. In our desire to discover and understand the doctrines of cults, we may forget that potential gardens of heresy lie within our own walls. Remember: Sun Myung Moon was raised a Presbyterian; David Berg, founder of the Children of God, was once an Evangelical pastor; Jim Jones pastored a Christian church; many leaders in the People’s Temple and Jonestown were former members of Nazarene, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Methodist and Assemblies of God Churches.” 1 (HL Bussell, pg.111)

 

 

      Besides the altar call, the invitation to Christian discipleship, and the various professions of faith, there are  other  coined religious platitudes and phrases like “Jesus, come into my heart” and “I accepted Jesus into my life”  that  lead to  counterfeit births.   I myself have not been able to find any scriptures in the bible that suggest that we should ask Jesus to come into our hearts.   I believe that when the Lord says that we must abide in Him, He means that we must stay in Him without wavering, in other words,—- to continue, to dwell, to be present, to remain. This is the essence of the Greek word,  that was translated “abide” in John 15.  Accordingly, baring fruit in Christ is a manifestation of a believer continuing and remaining in Him.

Yet Satan’s plot against the organized church  actually took shape  under the ministry of a preacher called Charles Finney.

Charles Finney

Finney was quite a wicked looking man, as you can see the devil all up in his face. The man lived a long time when you consider that in his lifetime, the average live span was  from the late forties to about 65.  Finney lived to be 83, from 1792-1875. A fiery New York preacher, Finney’s impact on church traditions and practices has been  so profound, that his influence is still spreading globally almost two centuries later.  Finney’s notoriety is that he is the one who brought the entire church the “make a decision for Christ” through repeating the sinners prayer and the altar call.  A practicing freemason for 8 years, Finney eventually disavowed if.  Yet what I have learned about freemasonry is that it is witchcraft. And you just  don’t walk away from witchcraft without a struggle.

Anyway, in a nutshell,  Finney believed that human beings were capable of choosing whether they would be corrupt by nature or redeemed, referring to original sin as an “anti-scriptural and nonsensical dogma”  In clear terms, Finney denied the notion that human beings possess a sinful nature. Therefore, if Adam leads us into sin,  he does so not by our inheriting his guilt and corruption, but by our  following his poor example, this leads logically to the view of Christ as not having died for sins but for some lofty, moralistic reason.

Well, this was the man who started the altar call, invitation to Christian discipleship, “I accept Jesus,” practice that has led to the greatest falling away—the one that Paul himself predicted would transpire.  Consequently, due to Charles Finney, souls have probably not been saved within the organized church system for at least 150 years!!!! This doctrine has  primarily affected the Protestants much  more than the Catholics. Another fallen angel, Mother Mary had a different strategy for THEM. The “make a decision, I accept Jesus gospel has so permeated all Protestant Church tradition, a problem that Baptist preacher Paul Washer is diligently trying to correct, to no avail.  Washer is correct on this score but there  are errors in his teaching as well, which is yet “another story.”  Another practice that Finney started was to use the preacher’s invitation at the end of a sermon to evoke an emotional response, in other words to create a charged up atmosphere to manipulate a false conversion.

The Influence of Women on Both the Charismatic and the New Age Movements

     What is it about the female psyche that predisposes women to white magic, whether it be New Age or charismatic manifestations?

To hazard a guess, I believe the female predisposition can be traced back to the days of Noah, when fallen angels broke through the dimensional barriers of the spirit and began to communicate and then copulate with women.  Simply put, fallen angels find it easier to contact us.  suffice it to repeat herein that women have tremendously facilitated the enemy’s passing from the 4thdimension into the third one. Consequently, it is not accidental that women have been prominent agents of both white magic and the charismatic movement as Satan has continued his enmity between his demonic army  and the seed of women for several centuries, up to and including the present. The snake is well-known and universally symbolic of  Satan, devils and demons. In the bible, the python snake is specifically associated with divination(Acts 16). No one can deny that the first biblically  recorded human being to converse with a fallen angel was Eve.  In fact, in Genesis Chapter 3, God pronounced and predicted a life-long battle between the female gender and Satan where Eve’s desire to lead is constantly challenged.  Therefore, it should not be surprising that the enemy would target women in a significant way to promote his own agenda. Perhaps the main subject of a future book, I merely  highlight the role that women have played in both the New Age and the charismatic movements for the intents and purposes of this article.

First consider that the new age movement as we know it today was actually founded by two women:  Helen Blavatsky (1891) and Alice Bailey.  (1919-1949).  Having studied in Tibet and trained by various masters in Theosophy, Blavatsky spread Theosophy around the word from 1875 until her death in 1891.   Theosophy is  a mix of Hinduism, Buddhism, Spiritualism, and Gnostic Christianity, with Masonic rituals, and a systematic criticism of Christianity, Judaism and Islam… all based in the visions and revelations that Mme. Blavatsky had by the “Mahatmas” of Tibet, and the Spiritualism she lived in the USA.[1]The “Mahatmas” are the “Great White Fraternity.” Among them are Buddha, Krishna, and the fake Jesus… The Theosophists try to get in contact with them by  all kinds of occultism, connected to the false assumption that God is mere “energy”; Notwithstanding,  this pseudo-religion acknowledges  a plethora of Hindu gods, to whom  followers worship  at make-shift altars in the  home.  In Theosophy, each man and woman is “God”… though they cannot make stars nor atoms!… but it is believed that  through many reincarnations, they will realize that they are “God.”  Theosophy teaches that Jesus Christ was divine only in the same sense that you and I are divine, and eventually, we will all be divine.[2]

Under the influence of both Blavatsky, the nineteenth century is characterized by an  increased interest in the occult and the supernatural, particularly in regards to necromancy, the communication with the dead.  Actually, women were its main agents, perhaps due to the barriers for women in leadership roles  within the organized church.  Spiritualism, as this movement was called, carved a place for women in leadership roles.  In 1848, the Fox sisters—Margaret, Leah and Catherine—, reported hearing spirit rappings in their Arcadia NY home.  As a result, these sisters became a driving force in American spiritualism.  They organized “performance” in which they manifested their psychic abilities.[3]These performances included communication with spirits, called channeling.  Channeling occurs by the use of a planchette or a Ouija Board.  Called a talking board, its first use emerged in the 19th century as a product of the spiritualism.  A planchette is a wooden board.  In his book, “Final Events,” the author summarizes “the talking board.”

“Methods of divination that existed at that time utilized a variety of ways to spell out messages, including swinging a pendulum over a plate that had letters carefully positioned around the edge, or y using a table to indicate letters drawn on the floor.”[4] Channeling enables spiritualists to enter into an altered state of consciousness, in which a trance is entered and the spiritualist or medium plays host— or in most cases—,hostess to a specific entity, which may be an angel, a demon, an extraterrestrial or a dead relative who speaks through the medium or channel.  Very often, the voice is extremely distorted or exaggerated, wherein the listeners are provided with words of wisdom, or spiritual comfort, yet it is nothing but vile deceit. [5] In 1915, Alice Bailey was introduced to Theosophy.  Once a Sunday School teacher in a Presbyterian church, Bailey’s studies ultimately led her to become a channel for fallen angels. In fact, Alice Bailey is renowned by New Age occultists, revered as “the Mother of the New Age Movement.”[6]

On the Christian Church side of the supernatural, beginning with Marie Woodworth Etter, faith healing and evangelist: (1844-1924), we find  one of the best known Holiness preachers of the pre-Pentecostal era. From around 1885 onwards she began to use the charismatic gifts in her meetings, and was known for healings, trances and visions. Licensed to preach in 1884, Etter was the mega preacher of her day in tent revivals. Her critics called her “the Voodoo Priestess.” She was known for speaking in tongues, along with strange and sundry manifestations that were attributed to the movement of the Holy Ghost. Etter was was also  known for preaching texts out of context, preached regularly  for the Mormons, and seemed to be the person who started the phenomena known today  as “slain in the spirit.” Most of the manifestations common in present day meetings like the Toronto Blessing  were experienced in the Woodworth-Etter meetings, so much so that some critics of the current movement trace The Toronto blessing  back to Etter.

      Etter was certainly faithful to her calling and it appears that  she was  honest and sincere.  But as I  WROTE  in “Faces of the Religious Demon”,  “we are now living in an era when the Lord will turn over those with a religious demon to a reprobate mind.  At that moment,the captive’s thoughts will be permanently darkened to the degree that he becomes incapable of receiving the truth.  Within charismatic circles, several women were as equally prominent as Blavatsky, Bailey, and the Fox Sisters.  Case in point, just prior to the Azusa Street phenomena, there was a woman who studied under Charles Parham, the father of Pentecostalism, named Agnes Ozman.(1870-1937)  She is considered to be the first person in our times to speak in tongues on 1/1/1901. According to her fellow students, it was reported that a halo surrounded Agnes Ozman’s face and head while she spoke in a language that sounded like Chinese, but the language was not verified. In fact, it is reported that she could not speak in English for 3 full days and she could only write what appeared to be Chinese characters. A student of Charles Parham, considered the founder/father of Pentecostalism, Ozman eventually changed her views on tongues as being the absolute and only evidence of the baptism in the Holy Ghost—a view still held by present day Charismatics and Pentecostals.[7]

     Four years after Agnes Ozman’s supernatural manifestation of speaking in tongues,  the Charismatic/Pentecostal movement began on Azusa Street in 1905. Yet even before Azusa, other women were historically prominent, including but not limited to: Elizabeth Mix, Carrie Judd, Elizabeth and Lotti Sisson and Marie Woodworth-Etter.  Born in Buffalo NY in 1858, Carrie Judd received a healing through the ministry of Elizabeth Mix, an African American evangelist.  Eventually, Judd herself became a worldwide evangelist, where “Mother” Emma Whittemore claimed that she received healing of a long standing spinal injury through Judd’s ministry.  Judd also worked with well known Marie Woodworth Etter.  In 1885, Etter began conducting healing meetings that were known for physical “manifestations,” where she spoke  to crowds as large as 25,000.  Many of Etter’s followers joined the Pentecostal denomination known as the Assemblies of God.[8]

     The effects of the 1905 Azusa Street manifestations unleashed a chain of reaction where several women either initiated or figured prominently within the charismatic movement at the turn of the 20th century.  Most noteworthy are Marie Woodworth Etter, Aimee Semple McPherson and Kathryn Kuhlman.  Every mega preacher, not only female but the men as well, have been influenced by the key women mentioned briefly in this article.  What does it all mean for us today? Well any woman who has had a supernatural experience that drew her into the ministry needs to learn how to try the spirits to see if it be of God.  Women are also welcome to enroll in our ministerial training program called SEW.

Fallen Angels and Near Death Experiences: THE WALK-INS

 

By Pam Sheppard

A “walk in” is actually a fallen angel who is said to enter the body of someone who went through a near-death experience and was still alive when the demon moved their spirit aside and “took over” both the body and the soul during or after resuscitation. In other words, as the spirit of an accident victim or of a terminally sick person loses the will to live on an operating table and begins to vacate the body, the demon steps in and takes over the dying just moments before their appointment with death. If this is true, with all of the “near death experiences” that have been reported in our lifetime who have been resuscitated, the foundation of a global build-up of true demon possession is already laid. In fact, it is not surprising that literally every “near death survivor” has “come back to life” preaching the false doctrine of universal love and universal religion with no mention of sin, repentance and the cross of Calvary.

An Excerpt from “the fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”(soft cover)

Consequently, Satan can manipulate earth events with ‘hands-on’ experience through the embodiment of some of his demonic troops. This would also fit the description, in the Book of Revelation (e.g., Rev.9:1-12), of the demon infested conditions on earth prior to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of the Age — not to mention those in the time of Noah (Gen.6:1-6; cf. Mt.24:37).The concept of “walk ins” may also be connected to dissociative identity disorder (DID) and other mental health conditions where a very fearful, traumatic event has caused a person to “flee out of body” in order to cope with horrendous circumstances. The flight of the human spirit in moments of great and sudden terror and fear may very well provide yet another doorway for the embodiment of a discarnate demon. Rape, horrendous accidents, brutalities, torture, horrors of war, to name a few.

So what happens to the spirit of the one who has lost the will to live at his or her death-bed once the “walk-in” WALKED IN???? My  occult experience as a former psychic medium may provide a clue. Before the Holy Spirit rescued me  and led me to the cross, I  experienced a supernatural phenomena a handful of times in the early 70’s that can only be understood through my recent research on the so-called “embodiment” of fallen concerning the “walk-ins.” Described in  three of my 9 books, the best description is in “Recovery In Christ”

“I did not think a thought or take an action without consulting my spirit guides. As time passed, the style of their communication went from Ouija Board, to spiritual writing with a pen or pencil,(channelling), to their coming into my body for about 5 minutes and speaking through my mouth by taking complete control over my larynx.

“I remember the first time that I was “taken over” or possessed by them. I did not go into a trance. I was fully conscious, but also totally out of control. One day, after an exhaustive session of spiritual writing, I began to feel dizzy and a little weak. There was a tugging feeling in my throat. Suddenly, my spirit vacated my body and stood on the opposite side of the room, listening to a conversation that others were having about me. As I stood outside of myself, I can remember thinking, “what in the world is going on here! Let me back into my body.” (pg. 26)

So since the captive to a “walk-in” has not actually died, his or her spirit is lingering on the outside. Weakened for a particular length of time, due to passivity brought about by a death wish, the captive can only return to his or her body when released by “the walk in.” Given an awareness of supernatural evil, whether or not we accept the ‘Walk-Ins’ theory — it is evident that extraordinary signs are taking place. If the rulers of the darkness of this world are now appearing in a physical body, it would appear to give credence to the fact that the aims of the Ascended Masters are being implemented on the earth today. The goal? A Universal Church that denies the cross, desensitizes sin and the need of the Savior, preaches selfhood and “breakthrough” , and a universal world order as it lifts up what the occultists refer to as “the Christ Consciousness”— a bunch of mumbo jumbo.

So as in the days of Noah, spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies has come to earth. Who knows if we may not already be entertaining “fallen” angels , unaware. So be ye also ready not to be deceived when folk come to you with “come see Jesus in the flesh over here or come see an angel in the flesh over there.”

I  hope that this article is a wake up call to the elect because there are numerous signs to suggest that the ascended masters have been secretly working within the organized church since around 1830. The groundbreaking book, the Fake Jesus    traces how it all began in order to assess where we stand today.

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.

The Comfort Zone of Church Attendance For the Lukewarm

Are you comfortable in the pews?  Are you addicted to standing behind a pulpit? I can relate. I tell my story of how the Lord used present day Pharisees   to mess with my comfort zone  in “Come Out of Her, God’s People.” In a dream, the Lord warned me. He said “Pam, I can’t use you in this place. So sit back and let them PUT YOU OUT!” I thought to myself “How can they put me out? I have been a minister in good standing in this denomination for 25 years!!! Well in 9 months from the day of that  dream, my fellow ministers and lay leaders PUT ME OUT!

Perhaps that will be the case for you. But if you are among the elect in endtimes, you must either walk out yourself, or the Lord will allow the devil to use fake Christians to PUSH you out. But out you MUST come out to survive and escape the plagues that are coming upon those still “in the house”!!! My warning to “the lukewarm” is taken from the words of Paul to Timothy and the words of Jesus to the church at Laodicea. We are living in the last days, where some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

So what is the bottom line to Satan’s not so tender trap? How was the devil able to get into the church, and not only secure a seat in the back row, but actually make his way to the pulpit? Well, through a gradual infiltration that has taken several centuries, Satan finally has his seat in the pulpit. You see, the gateway for the religious demon is “by invitation.” Invitations can be either formal or informal. Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness..

When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. When sermons are preached by wrenching scriptures out of their context for the purpose of making three points that have nothing to do with repentance, rebirth or the resurrection, an invitation is made to the religious demon. When salvation is taken out of the sovereign calling and election of God and put into the hands of man to “make a decision for Christ” then Satan moved from the backseat into the pulpit. When unsaved people came to church altars “chanting” after speaking in tongues, they invited demons to enter them and countless of these folk are now tormented, almost fully demonized.

As would be expected, the sheep followed the preaching of a distorted gospel, looking for blessings, success, and prosperity to come in the abundant life they are taught that Jesus promised them.They have been seduced into believing that “they have a right to the good life” and all that prosperity entails. Rarely do preachers even mention that serving Jesus Christ can also bring trial, tribulation, trouble and in some cases, even death. Consequently, Satan’s seat has been securred by the gradual elimination of the cross from the gospel preached in most pulpits.

Can Satan be unseated by the organized church?. How can he be? Though short lived, the bible tells us that Satan will have his day, when he officially takes his seat in the endtime synagogue, today called “THE CHURCH!” The organized church is fastly ringing true to her final name, Mystery Babylon. Furthermore, the time for repentance is already  OVER, since  judgement of the household of faith has already occurred. The remnant within the church shall prevail along with the rest of the 144,000 righteous remnant.

Whether an actual or a literal number, the truth is this. The way to the True Jesus is narrow and straight and the very few are those who enter in and find the real Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the only begotten Son of the Father. Every one of us who is saved today believed on Jesus Christ through the gospel that the first apostles preached. In this regard, the gates of hell can never make a claim on a born again child of God because any prayer of the Lord’s was answered by the Father.

Therefore, the gates of hell have not and shall not prevail against the saved. The Lord did not pray for the organized church in John 17. He could have, but He didn’t. It was about to be formed. No, Jesus prayed for its first leaders, the 11 Apostles, with Paul being the spiritual replacement for Judas. A serious cause for the confusion over who Jesus was referring to as “the church” is that for centuries, the organized religious system has made no distinction between its own bureaucracy and the eternal body of true believers in Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

In fact, in many churches, it is assumed and presumed that those who regularly attend on Sundays, pay their tithes and offerings, and partake of the means of grace are members in good standing, and therefore they are considered “saved.” This practice began with Catholicism and eventually carried over into the Protestant churches. Nevertheless, the assumption that every one on the church rolls is saved is certainly without scriptural justification.

Some of you might turn to a verse in Ephesians where Paul writes that the Lord is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle. Charismatics, particularly those who preach “dominion theology,” contend that as long as the organized church is a toothless ole hag in a soiled wedding dress, the Lord is not coming back for her. Dominion theology like those who embrace the Joel Army movement  boast of present day apostles who are expected to reform the organized church to cause her to be a presentable bride.

These folk are seriously deceived because there is not one thing that man can do to affect God’s timetable. Some of you “foolish virgins” need to put some oil in your lamps and come to terms with the reality that the Lord is NOT coming back for the organized church in what churchfolk have called “the rapture”. He is coming back for his invisible, eternal kingdom made up of the elect AFTER the Anti-Christ has reigned. Once saved, we no longer have “spots or wrinkles or any such thing” because a bona-fide Christian has been washed in the blood of the Lamb. Once Jesus Christ returns, we all shall finish out the cleansing by the resurrection of our dead bodies or the putting on of immortality by those of us who are alive at His coming, when we who are alive shall meet in the air those who preceded us in death.

This is the gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. There is only one event that I believe determines when the Lord shall come back. I believe He will come back when every name that was written in the Lamb’s book of Life before the foundation of the earth was laid, has heard the gospel and has been led to the cross by the Holy Ghost. Jesus prayed that He would have ALL of the elect. If there is one among the elect who has not yet been born, He will wait on that person hearing the gospel and being drawn to Him by the Holy Ghost. The ministry of the 144,000 will bring in every soul among the chosen of God who is alive just before the Lord’s coming.
