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.

To Be Born Again, Wait on God’s Call!

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

 I have examined my salvation at least three times according to II Corinthians 5:13, seriously examined it, because it was so supernatural. And the reason my salvation is my only personal possession is because I never accepted Jesus into my heart. I never sought Him. In fact, I did not believe that He actually was a literal human being that lived on Earth. I thought He was a myth, made up by the white man to keep my black  people enslaved with all of His meekness and turn the other cheek behavior, which was not my  personality at all. I was not afraid of hell because I did not believe in hell either. I confess that I was both proud and adamant in my position as an atheist. 

So what I received was a call.

 The problem is that religious folk have “accepted”  Jesus before they heard His call. The call is not about going into ministry. The call is when God is reaching out to you to tell you, “I saved you before I created the foundations of the earth. I knew you when you were in your mother’s womb. Oh atheist Pam, you were an atheist for 33 years, but I knew you, and I called you.” And when you get a call, you get that call on a specific day and time. Now He may have been drawing you for years, and He definitely has sent angels to stand by and protect you to keep the devil from killing you before you heard the call. my day and time was Monday, March 29, 1977 at 4 pm. 

Everybody who is born again who is saved by God hears a call. And where does that call take you? It takes you to the cross. That’s where you gotta go. You gotta go to the cross. And you may not know then the victory of the Lord’s blood, the power of His blood to ruin all the enemy’s plans that he has for you, the power of that blood to keep you. That’s the meaning of baptism, you have been baptized into His death, into His cross and raised out of that water into His resurrection. Lord have mercy. The call will also take you to His resurrection.  The Holy Spirit will give you faith to believe that a dead man got up in the body He died in, and walked out of His grave alive, never to die again. 

It’s a call! So, those who want to argue with me on this subject, who want to say “well what about my will, what about my will and my decision to choose God?” You know that doesn’t even really sound right. How can we choose God while we are yet dead in our trespasses and sins?

Let’s see what the bible says about this. What about your willpower in this? 

I asked myself this question since I  was a person with a very strong willpower. In fact, I  stood against my grandmother every Sunday. There was a church and my grandfather was the pastor. As an eight year old, I stood with my willpower as a young child and said to Grandma Greta “NO, I’m not going to that church, I’m not going to your church. I don’t believe in Jesus, I WILL not go”, and I did not go!!! 

So what happened to my willpower when I got the call? It almost seems like it disappeared. I was just caught up, snatched up in the call. You say “prove it to me, show me in the bible.” Well look at Ezekiel the 36th chapter. This is the prophetic words of God about the new birth. He doesn’t mention Jesus by name, but He does mention Him. He says, “I will sanctify My great name, I will take you from among the heathen.” And that’s what happened to Me, the one my grandmother used to call a heathen. 

I was taken from among the heathen and gathered out. He says “I will sprinkle clean water upon you.” Look at God’s emphasis. On all the “I will’s.” He says “I willsprinkle clean water upon you. I will give you a new heart, I will give you a new spirit, I will put a new spirit within you, I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, I will put My Spirit in you, and I will cause you to walk in My statutes and you shall keep My judgments and do them.” 

And that’s what 40 years of my  life have been about. I  got caused to be where I am now. Why? Because He said “I will put My Spirit within you, and it is My Spirit within you that will cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments and do them.” Lord have mercy. It’s the fear of the Lord, that Spirit within, that has caused ME  to be 40 years in Him. 

And then He says “I will also save you from all your uncleanness.” That’s what He does in Christ. Many have jumped out and said “I accept Jesus.” And so, since they accepted Jesus, then they have to cause themselves to keep the laws and the statutes and to obey God. It becomes a real work for them, but it’s a work without power. Why? 

They didn’t wait on the call. 

Wait on Him to call you. If you have a desire for Jesus Christ of Nazareth, then God is moving upon you. Wait for Him to call you. Don’t get duped into saying, “come into my heart.” Jesus Christ of Nazareth does not come into anybody’s heart. But the Fake Jesus does. If you need help, contact me at rescueonfb@icloud.com, because you are going to have to uninvite the Fake Jesus out of your heart, and you’re going to need some help doing that.

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.

EXPOSING THE APOSTLE PAUL …

Sherry Shriner is quite popular on the web.  In fact, she was a big help to me while I was conducting my research for the book

Pam Sheppard, 30 years a minister for the Lord Jesus.

“The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.”  I found her knowledge of the ascended masters to be quite helpful.  However, her writings on the Apostle Paul are blasphemous, considering that Paul wrote 1/3 of the New Testament.  I won’t go into Sherry’s contentions about this phenomenal apostle because I refuse to spread her point of view.  Instead, as a former atheist who had never been to church and no one had ever witnessed to me, Paul has been crucial to my spiritual understanding of what happened to me that strange but marvelous day when I became born again. For when I had my own Damascus Road experience with the Lord Jesus Christ, I knew of no one else who had ever had one.

Even though I got born again before I ever heard of the Apostle PAUL, I would not have understood why on March 29, 1977, I felt “so different.”  The newness.  The cleanness. The past seemed so far away.  No shame or guilt for ANYTHING and I had been quite the sinner in my first 33 years of life.  Why on this strange day in March did I feel like “I had JUST been born?”  A few minutes after I was “born again,” I opened my brand new bible and it turned to John 3, the words of the Lord, “you must be born again, that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit.”  After I read this, then the Holy Spirit spoke and said “Pam, you have just given birth to your new spirit in Christ Jesus.  Go run a bathtub full of water, and baptize yourself in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost!”

Wow!  Yahoo!  I never felt so great in my life!!!

No, Paul did NOT cause me to be saved.  No one did but God Himself.

I did not go to church for two years.  All I had was the Apostle Paul and the 4 gospels.  As a babe in Christ, home alone in my apartment, Paul caused me to understand my faith by confirming to me how and why God saved me.  Too many people read Paul’s letters in order to be saved.  In other words, they desire to be saved to escape hell,  and so they mechanically DO what Paul wrote about.  They think that if I SAY a confession, I  will be saved and I will go to heaven  because Paul wrote, “Confess the Lord with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus was raised from dead, you are saved. That settles it.  I accept Jesus.  I choose to be saved.  I seal it with saying the sinner’s prayer.  I’ll stamp it by going forward to the altar at the invitation.

You see, when I read Paul’s words, I said “Ah, that is what happened to me.”  I did not repeat  or confess words.  When the Holy Ghost saved me, I felt like a coin was dropped into me, like I was  a soda machine. But  Lo and behold, what came out of the machine was not soda, but faith in the resurrection of a dead man that I not only did not believe in, but I claimed that Jesus Christ never even existed, but that He was merely a white man’s myth!!!!”  I said nothing from my mouth but “Jesus.” “I am crying for what we did to Jesus!” That was it.  I said nothing about the resurrection.  I just knew that I knew that I knew that Jesus was dead, got up in His body and walked out of His own tomb, three days later.  My belief on the resurrection was the rock or stone that dropped into me and never left in 34 years, not one time! No doubt Jesus is alive in His body not one time in 34 years!!!!

So when Paul wrote  that we are saved by grace through faith, I understood the first time I read it because it had happened to me two years before reading Paul’s words to the Ephesians.  I knew beyond a  shadow of a doubt that my salvation was a gift from God because I never even sought the gift. On top of that, I was the last person that anyone who knew me would have believed what happened to me. So I could nod my head in agreement with Paul because I knew that my salvation had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ME.

However, what Paul taught me that I did not already know as a babe in Christ,  is that the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the son of God.  Without Paul, I would not have known or even understood that I can’t please God with my flesh.  Paul has been for me one of the best biblical examples of a spiritually fruitful child of God.  Once filled with pride over his scholarly achievements, his heritage and his cultural and religious attainments, Paul taught me how to die and yet live at the same time.  He taught me how to stand against the enemy, how to press on to victory, how to walk in the spirit and not fulfill my lust of my flesh. He taught me how to press on to the mark of my high calling in the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

No, Paul did not cause me to be saved.  What he did was train up a babe in Christ to become a minister.  Once I entered ministry, I had a number of elders and a few bishops that I was mandated to submit to.  However, none of them taught me a thing about what it take to be a minister.  It was Paul who did that.   I thank Paul for that.

 In fact, I love Paul the Apostle.

PREACHING? NOTHING MORE THAN AN ART Part 1

PREACHING? NOTHING MORE THAN AN ART Part 1.

PREACHING? NOTHING MORE THAN AN ART Part 1

Taking a scripture out of context is called texual preaching. It is the worst kind of preaching.

Homilitics: The “Art” of Preaching

I preached for more almost 3 decades, and I loved it.  It was NOT God so I put it down. Quit cold turkey on my 25th anniversary after I preached a message called “What do you have to burn.” The Lord spoke to me and said “Pam, you have to burn sermonizing. It is NOT of ME!

It is called “homiletics.” The ART of preaching.

Taught in seminary to ministers, I know from experience that the preaching resounding  from pulpits today has pitifully little to almost nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I should have taken the hint when I first started sermonizing. I didn’t because preaching gratified the Hollywood nature of my flesh.  The Lord spoke to me in a dream and said “Pam, when you preach, don’t forget to mention my name. I was a bit embarrassed. Yet every time I got in the pulpit, I remembered His words. I also will never forget how difficult it was for me to comply.  It was quite the struggle.  You see, the purpose of a sermon is to draw scriptures out of their natural context in either an entertaining or provocative manner for the purpose of either causing those who hear “to choose Jesus Christ” or to mature spiritually in Him. Built into the entire purpose of the sermon is the wrong premise.  WE DO NOT CHOOSE CHRIST. HE CHOOSES US.  Therefore when we preach this way, we grieve and we quench the Holy Ghost. Why? Because sermonizers use their stage like a performance to usurp His work.  The Holy Ghost does the drawing. The Holy Ghost does the convicting. The Holy Ghost does the converting, and He will not use our performance to do His work. The job of the preacher is simple.  We tell the story of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

What is the story of the gospel of Jesus Christ?  Here it is in a nutshell.

  • God came out of heaven and took on a human body.
  • He ministered on earth for 3 years and He was crucified. He died in our place as punishment for ou sins.
  • He overcame death, sin and the devil when He was raised from the dead
  • He is coming back for the saints and He shall rule this world as He rules the entire universe that He created.
  • Period.  This is the story of the preacher in and out of the pulpit. This is preaching. Nothing more, nothing less.

So what is this act or performance that continues in churches, in conferences and conventions,  acts that you can turn on Christian radio and listen to and watch on Christian television 24/7?

Preaching is an art. It’s an art of public speaking.  The problem with public speaking is in both the presenter and the listener. The presenter is forced to not only consider but to cater to the preferences, the like and dislikes of the presenter. Most listeners are resistant to anyone who speaks to them from a public platform for more than 15 minutes on “anything!” Poor attention spans is a problem for not only churches, but schools, training seminars, community meetings and other gatherings. Most truths have to be repeated over and over again. So this is the reason why you can ask any churchgoing, professing Christians to explain the cross and the resurrection, the doctrine of justification by faith, how to walk in the spirit, and he or she will struggle to define or explain. The essentials of the gospel are lost in the preacher’s desire to capture the attention of those who are dull of hearing.

However, the true problem is with the preacher. I was the type of preacher that people either loved or hated to hear.  I wanted them to love me.  However, when I got up to speak, my method and my subject matter was either like John the Baptist or the Apostle Paul. I preached a hard word.  Even so, when the Holy Ghost called me out of the church, He schooled me gradually and periodically.  The first thing He said while I was still a denominational pastor was “Pam I cannot use you in this place.  You are a light, hidden under a bed.”  I left the denomination yet while I was pastoring the church that I myself founded, He said, “the people act like they are supporting you. They seem to love to hear you speak.  However, their ears are dull of hearing. They are all living a lie.  They are all hypocrites and they are filled with demons.  Your church has become a dwelling place of demons.” So I closed it.”

 I was a good preacher. I loved preaching primarily  because I thought God was using it.  He is not.  The sermon is a dead thing. I buried it and I press on.

My last sermon convicted me. The thing I had to burn was preaching.

HOW TO HELP SOMEONE WITH A FALSE CONVERSION Part 1

False conversions.  I call them “counterfeit births.” I suspect that false conversions are the major sign of the great falling away. Clearly, it is rather obvious, even to the least spiritual among us in the world and in the religious world that there is certainly something wrong when there exists such a state of utter religious confusion and doctrinal mumbo jumbo.  An understanding of today’s dilemma was prophesied by the Apostle Paul in his revelation to Timothy when Paul wrote that in the last days, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

Evidently, the primary demonic strategy is deception. Deception is the first stage of the falling away process. One of the goals of this blog is to

I KNOW I'm Saved!

un-complicate things. So I personally took the first step of self-examination.  Once I discovered that there is a fake Jesus, the first thing that I did was to confront the issue of my own salvation, head on.  Since it was so supernatural in nature,  after more than two decades, I asked myself “Pam, are you REALLY saved?  I did what Paul recommended to the Corinthians as recorded in II Cor. 13:5: I examined myself to see if I be in the faith.  I proved my self.  I examined myself to see if Jesus Christ be IN me.

Now to be IN me is not a physical or a soulical thing.  Jesus is not IN my heart because my heart is a part of my soul.  No, by the power of the Holy Ghost, He is in my spirit.  I examined myself by John 15, to see if there is any fruit in my life.  What is fruit?  I will address that in yet another post.  However, there were 3 things I looked for.  Did I experience godly sorrow that worked repentance in me.  Did I see my own sinful nature?  Was I drawn to the cross or led to the Lord’s sacrifice by the Holy Ghost.  Did I understand the resurrection the day I was saved.  I realized that I have to first understand it in order to believe that a dead man lives in a physical body, who is now seated at the right hand of God.

I knew BEFORE I even examined my salvation that I was born again.  However, I examined it ANYWAY.

So what do you do about a false conversion.  You start with YOU.  More in part 2.

YOUR GUIDE TO EXAMINING YOUR FAITH…

 

 
   WAS YOUR CONVERSION REALLY OF YOUR OWN DOING? Was the Holy Ghost involved in leading you to the cross and to repentance?  Did the Holy Ghost plant faith into your spirit to believe that Jesus is alive in His physical body? Did you feel cleansed, forgiven and assured? Or did YOU make the choice, repeat “I accept Jesus into my heart,” and then joined a church?The church age that we live in is  the church at Laodicea. Everyone has been contaminated by false and mixed doctrine and practices for at least 100 years or more. Everyone has been deceived, across the board. That includes me, that includes YOU!

Imagine if you would, the horrific shock of faithful, religious people who after they died, heard the voice of the Lord Jesus Christ somberly say to them, “I never knew YOU!”  Wow.  Consider that more than 75% of their entire lives was spent either on a church pew or even behind a pulpit.  It blows my mind.   I can’t even speak any further on it. Yet, these very words are recorded in the book of Matthew as said to people who have claimed to cast out devils in His name.  How were they able to do that if He never knew them?  Well, they didn’t.  Demons merely used games and tricks to deceive people into believing that demons  were cast out from people, when they were not. Demons are skilled at playing possum.

Bringing this right down home into your own personal backyard, where do YOU stand in the midst of a spiritual conspiracy theory that is mind boggling, to say the least? 

The first thing you must do is to “examine your faith.”  Jesus advised the church at Laodicea to “buy gold from Him that has been tried in the fire. ” In other words, examine the root of the tree and its fruit  and  simply go  back to the day that you believe you got saved and thoroughly  scrutinize it from top to bottom. In other words, shake that tree and see if your salvation can withstand the shaking. 

This is a hard thing that I enter into on the first counseling session with each of my clients.  What I have found is that  there are some developmental stages most go through: :denial, defensiveness, anger at me but mostly at God, and worst of all, fear of going to hell.

A FALSE CONVERSION MUST BE OVERTURNED.

My dilemma is that I can’t spoon feed them.  I try to be as gentle and as supportive as I can be but I can’t hide the truth.  Never sure whether or not a client is going to continue with me, when  it is obvious to me that they are not saved, I am compelled to warn them for their sakes.  If they are among the elect, He will quicken my words to them at the appointed time for them to “be shaken.”

At least if I never hear from them again, I have planted a seed that they can’t throw away very lightly.  Jesus said that you can’t put new wine into old wine skins  or else the  wine skins would break.  I can’t confront demons in a person if that person is defenseless. You see, the weapons of their warfare are carnal and therefore will not work against the enemy because they are not saved. To avoid this most crucial “shaking,”  would be like trying to mend  an old garment with a new piece  of cloth. It will rip and be torn.

So, I waste no time starting that fire that will bring about the shaking.  My ears have become accustomed to  familiar cries of complaint, like—  “I gave up the sin of fornication, packed my bags and stopped living in sin, I went to church regularly, and so on and so forth.”  They come back at me with yet another defense, like  “Well, I had a distinct change in lifestyle and personality.  All things became new.  So why is it that I am still not a new creature?”

Surely, its complicated because Satan has put his hand on the doctrine of salvation and as would be expected, he has brought about much confusion and religiosity. However, salvation is very simple. It is completely in God’s hands.

The biggest mistake is how people relate to Jesus.  Most  don’t realize that they have by-passed Him and gone  directly to the Father.  Other’s ignore Him yet seek the Holy Ghost.  Both ways open the door wide to religious devils. Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. Demons know that better than anybody!  

With those who believe that they repented of sin, I find that they really have no understanding of the cross. They simply looked through their portfolio of sins, picked one, convicted themselves of it and said “I’m saved.”  Like  the Galatians, those who created their own born again experience  depended upon their own works. Then like  the Colossians, others have been drawn away from Christ through philosophy and the traditions of men.

To both the Galatians and the Colossians, Paul had the same message—the cross of Calvary. 

Your understanding of the cross  will determine whether or not He says “I never knew You!”

Here is a clue.  If you are not separated from the world not only in your deeds but in your mind, if you still seek the approval and the acceptance of the world and the church world, then you do not understand the cross. You may have simply convicted yourself of sin and brought about your own change and lifestyle, yet  gladly giving the credit to the Holy Ghost when “it was really  ALL your own doing.”

WHAT TO DO ABOUT FALSE CONVERSIONS Part 2

As I point out inPart 1, ” Where a false conversion is concerned, the first place to start is with YOU! You need to go back to day ONE, the place, time and circumstance of the day you believe you got converted. Begin by asking yourself these questions:

WERE YOU THERE WHEN THEY CRUCIFIED MY LORD? DID IT CAUSE YOU TO TREMBLE?
  1. Did I understand the cross?
  2. Did I understand the bodily resurrection of the Lord?
  3. Did I experience godly sorrow that led to repentance?.

In this post, I am focusing on number 3, godly sorrow and repentance.

What actually IS godly sorrow?  I think the true meaning is in its name.  It is NOT human sorrow or self-pity. It is of God, toward God and manifested through us by God Himself in the Person of the Holy Spirit.  Godly sorrow first begins with and in us when we get a deep glimpse of who and what we are as sinners. Because of MY sin, Jesus had to die on a cross for ME. He took the punishment that was meant for Me upon Himself.  He died for someone who is unrighteous. Then the sorrow that began in me turned toward the Lord and I felt sorrow for Him.  I did not fully understand why. Most of the time we focus on the physical torture of a crucifixion. We will learn AFTER we are saved is that the sorrow we felt for the Lord Jesus is not as much for His physical suffering.  Let us face it. God Himself became the thing He loathes. Jesus became sin for ME. The Son of God was separated from His own righteousness in becoming sin for me, when He did not sin Himself. I deserved the punishment that He received.  It gets even deeper.

The Lord was separated from His Father because of ME and MY sin. So we do feel a sense of guilt and shame for the innocent suffering for the guilty.  So the godly sorrow that began with you begins to turn toward Jesus.  I remember I cried out “I am crying for what THEY did to Jesus. I did not realize 34 years ago that it was MY crime also. I was thinking of those who mocked and scorned Him and those who whipped and beat Him. I didn’t realize that I too “WAS THERE!” I did know that His punishment was for me, though. You see, Beloved, godly sorrow is not humanly aroused   sympathy or pity either for ourselves  or for the Lord. Godly sorrow is the entire work of the Holy Ghost. Too often movies like “the Passion of Christ” work up and upon human emotions that are often mistaken for godly sorrow that leads to repentance.

A simple little song defines the reason for godly sorrow, “He paid a debt He did not owe, I owed a debt I could not pay. I needed someone to wash my sins away.”

Word of faithers and charismatic Christians teach that repentance is a change of mind. A change of mind can be s simple as changing my dinner menu from chicken to steak.  No.  Repentance is much more than that.

Repentance is the dark night of the soul. It is when we come face to face with our inner darkness. We cannot be translated out of darkness into the Lord’s marvelous light, until we truly see our inner depravity and sorrow over it.

If this is not the kind of repentance YOU experienced, then you have not been to the cross of Calvary. Get in touch. We can help. 518-477-5759

SHAKE YOUR SALVATION TREE AND SEE IF ANY FRUIT FALLS

What I am about to ask you to do is to “step outside of your personal situation” and see the broader picture for a brief moment.  The problem for all of us is that it is natural for us to be egocentric.  In other words, everything that goes on in the world revolves around us and our immediate situation. I’m asking you to step outside of the boundaries of your own self-created circle and consider the state of the organized church system from a historical not a hysterical perspective. Imagine that an operation was done in a hospital on a person who had a communicable disease but no one knew he was infected  at the time. The doctors and staff were  extremely skilled, the hospital was reputable. They simply did not know that the person that was operated on had a disease that would spread and affect everyone. So the operating room was contaminated in spite of their usual efforts to scrub and sanitize it. The contamination spread throughout the hospital. Everyone who came in there was innocent, not knowing what was going on. Disease continued to spread from one person to the other, because no one properly investigated the cause.Who is to blame? Is it the hospital? The one with the disease? No. It is the enemy. He planted an evil within the organized church system.

ALL are affected by it. There are no exceptions or special cases.

This is the nature of the church age that we live in, the church at Laodicea. Everyone has been contaminated by false and mixed doctrine and practices for at least 100 years or more. Everyone has been deceived, across the board.

If you are willing to “shake your salvation tree,” your willingness to do so is a  positive sign that your name   actually IS written in heaven.  The first thing that needs to be pointed out is that names written in heaven were penned before the worlds were framed.  In other words, you are one of the elect, whether deceived or not.  If you have been deceived, God will move heaven and earth to bring the light of truth into your confusion and with that light of truth will come both peace and power.

So know this:  GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL!!!! If you have been deceived, the Lord will see to it that the blinders are ripped off of your spiritual eyes. As it is in the natural, sudden light hitting the eyes is painful.  Yet, once the pain subsides, sight and clear vision is worth rejoicing over.

As a word of hope and deliverance to those of you who have been deceived in church or by people who professed to be Christians, I advise you to stay true to the light because darkness will often be too uncomfortable to stay around the light.  The darkness in the conscience of those of you who are under bondage to either religiosity or charismatic witchcraft will cause you to either humble yourselves and seek deliverance or to lose all ability to discern good from evil.  Hopefully, you will be genuinely convicted and reborn in the spirit.

To fight off delusion and obsession, you must continue to search your own life by the spirit, praying to the Father of Lights, “Lord, I want the unfruitful works of darkness in my life to be exposed.  Show up, demon!  Show yourself!!”

Once you pray in this manner, demons will be exposed all around you and your understanding will be enlightened. Not only will your own tree be shaken, but everybody around you will be exposed, one way or another.  So hold onto your seatbelts, Beloved.  It’s quite a bumpy  yet an exciting ride!!!
