Normal strivings for power in a believer are motivated by a sincere desire to be used by God to deliver those in the kingdom of this world so that they might enter the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What distinguishes normal inclinations from obsessions is that demonic striving for power is often rooted in fear, hatred and feelings of inferiority. A passive-aggressive control freak wears a phony mask.
Let’s bring it down home to where we all live. Racism is a cultural factor that involves hatred and fear. . When the predominant culture is in fear of losing its power and even worse, becoming extinct, demons of fear, hatred and pride conjoin with the witchcraft demon to control, dominate and suppress those of another race or culture. Then there are those who feel insecure mentally and emotionally who strive for power as a means to protect themselves from anxiety and from a feeling of helplessness.
The religious demon is also attracted to a soul that feels very insignificant. Those who have been consistently oppressed will develop a rigidity and an unbalanced “super strength” which makes them think and act as if they can master any situation in their own power. Such a person will pretend that he is leaning and trusting on the Lord’s power by spouting scripture like “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”, yet within his soul he considers any weakness as a disgrace and he is steeped in pride. For example, he judges other saints as being weak, when in reality, he himself feels weak and insignificant. This is fertile ground for demons and devils because they can use the captive to intimidate the weaker brethren and to cause the control freak to feel condemned. When the control freak feels condemn, WATCH OUT FOLK! The ruling entity will cause the control freak to despise himself when he has fallen. When the control freak despises himself, EVERYBODY is a target!
The control freak will demand to know every detail of even the most insignificant situations. When he or she has not been informed of EVERYTHING, extreme agitation sets it which a passive-aggressive control freak will be skilled at hiding from others. People with this character flaw can appear to be extremely generous. No one may even notice his desire to dominate and control because the captive is so subtly manipulative. Usually in such cases, a lying demon is involved also. People who appear to be submissive and giving will surprise you with how manipulative they can be. For example, when you righteously confront them with issues that are important to YOU , they avoid the issue at hand by simply responding with counter accusations, whether they be true or not. All confrontation, no matter how small or insignificant, causes them to perceive you as THE ENEMY.
Secular psychoanalysts would agree that constant striving for superiority or “one upsmanship” is at the center of the narcissistic personality, forming a stronghold that is very difficult to shake or even to weaken. The question to as is “What is at the root of the constant striving?” In some cases, it is an unconscious sense of inferiority. Such people are in a perpetual search for something that will make them feel more personally competent and they get a temporary satisfaction in dominating others by outshining them.
Elder Jones was of this sort. A dark-skinned African-American, Elder Jones was born and raised in the segregated south. Too many times did she expose the fact that she felt inferior because of her skin color. So she compensated. In the denomination, Elder Jones became the FIRST woman regional administrator in 150 years. So once she obtained this noteworthy position, why would she unnecessarily place herself in competition with her immediate predecessor, and determine that she would outshine him? Why would she continue to try to outdo all of the ministers that she now had oversight power over? It made no logical sense.
For example, a church lost its pastor in the middle of the year and a temporary appointment was in order. Elder Jones had 5 ministers available to her to pick from. Did she select one of them? No. She selected herself, even though she already was pastoring a church when it is the normal policy for someone in her position to relinquish the role of pastor entirely. So she became the pastor of not one church but two, also remained the regional administrator, with 10 other churches and pastors under her watch care. Once she appointed herself pastor of the second church, the members passively rebelled by not attending on Sunday mornings, a mistake on their part. Elder Jones used her power as the right hand of the Bishop to recommend that this 100 year old church be closed and the Bishop acted upon her recommendation. The church is NO MORE!
Passive-aggressive people can be very dangerous in uncountable ways. The truth will set them free but the truth hurts them to much. Pride causes people to not want to admit that they are suffering from feelings of inferiority that cause them to “lord it over” others. This is a most serious situation. Not only are these types at risk of perdition, when they obtain positions of power and authority, they are dangerous. Control freaks are particularly dangerous because they DO have a form of godliness because they behavior is eccessively polite, and they are very skilled at feigned poise in their strivings for position and power. The central issue of a control freak is domination and control. Elder Jones strong desire for power is masked by her being “a good person.” So she uses her good character to be in a position of unchallenged prominence and prestige. The dangerous element of the woman is that she feels herself to be surrounded on all sides by competition for the ascendency that she herself craves. As a result, her strong need to outshine or excel over others, to outsmart them, to make them subservient to her wishes play a crucial role in her control freak style. For example, every situation or interaction with her is viewed from the standpoint of “can I top his or her performance?” or “is this person trying to make ME look bad? What can I do to protect myself?.”
Well she can cut your spiritual head off!
Today is my 30th anniversary as a minister. Take my word for it. Churches are overrun with Elder Jones personality types, both male and female–people who need deliverance counseling. If you are in their spiritual prison, the time to break out and escape to freedom is NOW! Help is available at 518-477-5759.
What is a demonic soul tie?
Well, it is when a religious demon sets up a relationship for the sole intent of entrapment. The world calls it a “codependent relationship.” In deliverance, we call it a demonic or unholy soul tie. One person is usually the perpetrator and the other is the victim. Who knits their souls together? A fallen angel with the help of a demon or two.
Holy, divine soul ties between married couples draw husbands and wives together like magnets, while soul ties between fornicators can draw a beaten and abused woman to the man who in the natural realm she would hate and run from, but instead she runs to him even though he doesn’t love her, and treats her like dirt.In the demonic world, unholy soul ties can serve as bridges between two people to pass demonic garbage through. Other soul ties can do things such as allow one person to manipulate and control another person, and the other person is unaware of what is going on or knows what is going on, but for no real reason, allows it to continue.
With women who are called to be special handmaidens for the Lord, the best strategy of a religious fallen angel is to ensnare her into a demonic soul tie. A demonic or ungodly soul tie is like an invisible rope between two or more persons that fallen angels and demons can use to their advantage to cross or travel from one person to another. Ungodly soul ties are not only romantic or sexual in nature because they can also be formed with parents, relatives and friends. In any case, captives to a demonic soul tie find themselves uncontrollably attracted to someone who either hurts them, or who is in no way interested in them.
Both men and women under the influence of a demonic soul ties act like obsessed “love slaves.” To acknowledge that the relationship is not mutually beneficial is an understatement. Usually the satanic agent’s target is most always the giver in the relationship, where his or her partner is used by evil spirit to violate the captive’s conscience and to manipulate its target to do something that is against his or her will. Most often, the captive is manipulated through the anger, temper tantrums, guilt trips and even threats from a lover or spouse who is unknowingly in the hands of devils and demons. This is not a union made in heaven. It is actually a defiled marriage bed, joined together by the enemy.
I stumbled on to a method of deliverance that when first introduced, shocked me to my toes. Led by the Holy Ghost, I called the spirit by the name of the demonic oppressor and to my utter amazement, it manifested, just like a demon. In other words, a woman I’ll call Lucy in a demonic soul tie with a man named Frank, I rebuked it by saying, “Frank, I command you to come out of Lucy’s in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the thing roared out of Lucy’s mouth like a demon.” Nine times out of ten, I call a demon by the perpetrator’s name, the exact same thing happens.
Well, why did this happen?. I’ll hazard a guess. Frank has demons. When Lucy had sex with him, she became vulnerable to Frank’s demons, especially if Lucy has a passive nature. The demons in Frank used his spirit as a means to “climb up and into Lucy.” I’ve seen such a thing manifest several times since, so the first person was not an isolated case.
I myself did not have a demonic soul tie with any of my husbands. However, I remember a boyfriend who was a corrupt minister that I write about in “Come Out of Her, God’s People.” To summarize, uncharacteristic of me, I found myself stuck on stupid over this man. He did me “a lot of dirt” yet I couldn’t shake him. Yet the Holy Ghost cast that demon off of me. Here is what happened: “
“Then one night, one of the strangest things happened to me.
It reminds me of the old tune that goes “I’m gonna wash that man right outta my hair.” It was so supernatural that I don’t even have adequate words to describe what happened. All I can say is that I awoke in the middle of the night when an un-earthly wind blew into my bedroom and settled on my chest. I call this strange suction cup “The Holy Ghost Vacuum Cleaner.” As I lay on my back, all of the feelings and emotions that I had for this man were literally sucked out of me. The demonic soul tie was instantly broken.”
There is a lot more that I have written on this subject. To know more about the subject matter, you should look into obtaining three of my books: “Come Out of Her, God’s People” “Faces of the Religious Demon” and the New Idolatry”
If you are in a demonic soul tie, you will need that man or woman’s spirit cast from YOU. Help is available. 518-477-5759.
I must admit that in the first 5 decades of my life, I did not particularly like women because in my world space, there were just too many meely mouthed, back stabbin female crabs in a barrel. And even though I had my issues with men as well, I liked them better and preferred their company and friendship to that of my own gender. In fact, when I was in my twenties and thirties, my best friends were gay. We could shop and do the hair, nails and dress up thing, but when I was pulled into a cat fight, their masculine strength would rescue me in a New York minute.
Now that I have been saved 34 years, about to celebrate my 3oth year in ministry in a few weeks, I have really grown to love my sistahs and my sisters. Don’t know what I would do with out my crew. Yet, online, I have run into a wild, unruly bunch of professing Christian women who are like bulls or heifers in a China shop. I call them, “Holy Phony Silly Women!” lol
Silly women are those who think they can step out on the Internet—on facebook, in chat rooms, by email, Skype, youtube, you name it, they are out there from all over the world, buttin heads with Christian folk like wild heifers. The freedom of the world wide web has mesmerized them to forget Pauls words–-not to use liberty as a license to rebellion. Paul said it like this. “All things are expedient to me but all things are not lawful or helpful.”
Much too much that women are “teaching” and “preaching” on the web is not only NOT helpful, but it is harmful.
The bible also tells us to avoid silly women and unfortunately, in spite of my affection and concern for them, I have to turn away. It is not necessary to know a lot to teach. The issue is that what you know—you KNOW!— and what you teach should be without error.
One who teaches needs to be able to discern fact from truth, an hypothesis from a finding, a supposition from a conclusion. Yet women are on video clips and writing facebook notes and tweeting about spiritual growth and endtime matters. when they have not a clue. Then, when they are confronted, they angrily justify and defend themselves with,
“Oh, I am just a housewife. I am not teaching. I am just “spending quality time with my online friends. I am not as bold as YOU Pam, to say that I am a teacher. Oh no. I am not a teacher. I am just “having conversation.” For after all, I am too humble to appoint myself, as YOU have done. I have the fear of the Lord because I know that a woman is not suppose to teach. And I know that teachers receive the greater judgment and condemnation for teaching error!”
This is that same ole slippery way that women deal with their husbands. You’ve played your manipulative games with him for so long,—letting him believe that he is running your home when you KNOW the truth is that YOU are!!! Consequently, you rationalize that you can also manipulate God and pretend that “you are not teaching YOUR interpretation of the word of God.
Let’s get real, Sisters. This is Holy Phoniness to the max. It stinks in my spiritual nostrils. You not only quote scripture, but you declare to people how they ought to worship and “get in the presence of the Lord,” whether or not to fast, how to fast and pray, —and even deeper—that there is no rapture, that Jesus is not literally coming back but that it is a “spiritual” return, that people should not prepare themselves for endtimes, that those who speak in tongues are going to hell, that pentecostals are all unsaved heathens. That various folk are false prophets—I’ve heard a woman call them lunatics. And on and on it goes, day after day.
But this is not “teaching” you see! It is that great ole euphemism called “sweet fellowship with the saints and harmless, idle conversation” Oh, no. YOU not a teacher. Yeh!
To that, I say this. Consider the “technical virgins” of today. They believe themselves to be righteous because they have never experienced coitus by vaginal penetration, yet they masturbate 4 times a day to online porn or they are having anal and oral sex on a regular basis. “Look yall, I’m still a virgin. Yeh!
So I say to Holy Phony Silly Women. Stop accusing Me of flaunting my “education.” Stop being a crab in a barrel. Stop sneering about me behind my back and then cooing at me with an “I LUV U Pam! Ugh!
After 30 years in ministry, if I don’t know my calling BY NOW and if I am not bold enough to stand in it, then I am as Holy Phony and as Silly as YOU are. (In the first place, you are not correct. I have a masters degree but I have no Christian education, never went to seminary. I simply have 25 years experience in the organized church as a preacher AND a pastor and 38 years as a licensed counselor.) And I don’t teach what I DO NOT KNOW!!!!
So I say to others of you clearly. You know who you are. Since you will not allow me to teach you, then stop plagerizing my books and come out of the closet. If you are going to steal my words, at least give me a shout out!!! If you like what I write THAT much , I am willing to teach YOU and YOU know it.
So “either teach, as WOMEN OF GOD, OR GET OFF THE POT!
If you decide to teach, I can train you in 3-6 months. You don’t have to affiliate with me and no one has to know that I am the one who “undeceived you” and you can go about your merry way. It won’t matter to me. My concern is for those who are following you that you are feeding error every day.
Humble yourself right now, Gurl, to the fact that you just ain’t ready! Time is too short to be narrowminded and petty. You need to get your act together, like yesterday! ASAP!
Anybody who wants to come out of the silliness, rise up and get wise, call me at 518-477-5759. I’ll hook you up!!!
Domestic violence is rarely handled effectively by the church. Shame and blame is often cast upon the backs of women who are victims. This is last of a series, on what women can do if pastors or Christian leaders give off color advice, such as advising victims to obey their husbands. But God supports your decision to leave violent abusers. Psalm 19:48 says that you have been delivered from the violent man. Why would God want you to stay in a violent, domestic violence household.
I’ve been in a domestic violence situation, and I can tell you this: Jesus Christ of Nazareth ,did not die on the cross for God’s daughters would remain in bondage to violence. If the Son has truly set you free, you are free indeed. Good Christian men exist, the violent man is an exception. You can learn to forgive your husband, or the one who is inflicting violence upon you. But first and foremost—-Get yourself and children to SAFTY.
Pam Sheppard has over 25 years pastorial experience, and her expertise in deliverance counseling is second to none. Her team of deliverance ministers are waiting now to advice and support you. You will need expert support, and guidance in making your exit to safety.Domestic violence can cause you to lose your life. Those with no experience, will have you engaging in talk therapy. You need to take immediate action.
The devil will put strongholds meant to stop you from taking authority by helping yourself. Don’t feel ashamed. Only feel shame, if you are a person with no intentions of helping yourself and children.
Last, but not least, don’t be fooled by a violent man’s promise to change. He will promise you the moon, but the next time he abuses, you could end up dead. Abusers blow hot air, and lie. Remember that domestic violence is a crime punishable by law.
The Christian women’s answer to domestic violence puts you in charge. Abusers will not change unless you give them a reason to you. If you stay you give a silent message that violence on your person is acceptable. God’s helping hands can’t embrace you fully, if your living in sin. It is a sin to put yourself and your children in harms way. Also, by continuing to live with violent spouses you hold up their salvation, and your own. If you stay, your going against God’s las of love.
The does heal relationships. God is in the business of restoration. But your only concern should be to protect yourself, and the children God has entrusted to you.

- Domestic violence is an age old problem. Christian women who are being abused, often find that churches, as a whole, are ineffective in dealing with these issues.

- This article is for informational purposes only. Call our office for professional help, and guidance. The Christian women’s answer to domestic violence is not difficult to understand. All one has to do is use the common sense God gave you. Some pastors refuse to give rational assistance and supporting scriptures to abused women.

- What pastors need to tell you, is that violence abuse is criminal behavior, and God would not want you to harbor a criminal. What Christian leaders need to do, is stop blaming the victim. Such leaders are in need of prayer and forgiveness. What you must do, before trying to help the pastor understand is—GET TO SAFETY!
