When I developed the Christian counseling model called “deliverance counseling,” I explained the reason for its existence in the book “FACES OF THE RELIGIOUS dEMON: Freedom Through Deliverance Counseling.” However, as I reading through “War on the Saints,” I found a quote written at least 100 years ago that explains deliverance counseling better than I can. So here is the phenomenal quote of woman of God, Jessie Penn-Lewis:
“It has been thought almost universally, that the only way to deal with demon possession is by casting out the evil spirit, by some divinely equipped believer. But facts prove that this method is not always successful, for though the diagnosis of the intruder’s presence may be correct yet THE GROUND THAT GAVE IT OCCUPATION CANNOT BE CAST OUT; and unless the ground is dealt with, no full relief can be obtained, or change seen, in the majority of cases.”
In others, when the evil spirit apparently departs, it must not be concluded that the person is entirely free, for it may be that what has occurred is only THAT A PARTICULAR MANIFESTATION HAS CEASED, and it is not unlikely that another manifestation may appear; possibly not a visible one, or one easily perceived or detected, but recognizable by ANY WHO HAVE LEARNED TO DISCRIMINATE between the workings of evil spirits, and those which are human or divine.
It is possible also to suppress a certain manifestation for a time, and not entirely get rid of it; and the SAME manifestation may return again and again in DIFFERENT GUISE, UNLESS THE GROUND IS DEALT WITH.
Where the demon has a distinctive personality that is different and even contrary to its captive, its presence is obvious. So when it is cast out, the captive knows he or she is free because the relief is immediate.
However, where the demon’s essence cannot be distinguished from the captive, it is hidden and can appear to be a natural property of the captive.
In such cases, truth should be presented FIRST, and the WILL of the captive should be strengthened so that he or she can refuse and DISOWN THE GROUND.” (page 180)
In a nutshell, Jessie Penn- Lewis has succinctly presented the case as to why I do not practice deliverance ministry and why I have developed a deliverance counseling model.

Those whom the Lord saves who were accustomed to supernatural experiences like telekinesis, poltergeist and other magical types of manifestations will try to explain such phenomena with scriptures. They rationalize and continue to believe that psychic phenomena are the gift of miracles.
For example, I was just born again a year or so when I spoke to a storm and it seemed that I stopped it. It was one of those summer storms. My clothes were drying on an outside line and I had just settled down in my backyard in a lawn chair with a cool drink when the sky got dark and the winds kicked up. I stood up, spoke directly to the storm and commanded it to leave. I kid you not, it rained all around my backyard, but not a drop fell where I dwelled. The sun came back out, shined only above me, while the entire neighborhood was flooded with rain. It was quite a deluge. So of course, I connected this incident to the Lord speaking to a storm and what He said about speaking to mountains as my biblical “confirmation. I look back now and I realize that this manifestation was not from God. The motive? To make me into a signs and wonders, charismatic freak. The fallen angel responsible was quite successful. It didn’t take much to turn me into granola—a fruit, a nut and a flake!
Here is the crux of the problem. As a product of New Age occultism, Christians with psychic phenomena in their past remain ignorant of the deception of the mighty foe. So once born again, each of us has been assigned a religious/witchcraft spirit entity whose job is to seek every opportunity to buffet us with counterfeits of the gifts of the Holy Ghost that seem to be from God.. The assigned fallen angel or demon waits for an element of the flesh to manifest itself in the new believer, in order to gain his master’s end. The Apostle Paul calls that aspect of our flesh by the name of witchcraft. Like Simon the Sorcerer, we carry in our flesh a lust for the supernatural that the enemy works with. Since occultists are trained to expect the supernatural, hidden in our flesh remains the same desire AFTER we are saved.
How did I overcome? My story is in “Come Out of Her, God’s People.”
I experienced many dealings of the flesh—many trials, tribulations and tests.
Being put to death in the flesh goes on and on. Overcoming was not finished in one mighty stroke. The Holy Spirit covered all bases, first dealing with my ambition for the 3 p’s of prestige, prominence and power. What helped me is that even when I was a sinner, , I was a lover of the truth. So I became one who sought spiritual truth at all cost. Also, as Paul was assigned a religious demon–a thorn in his flesh–to develop him, so was I.
I am a overcomer because my religious demon presented me with trials and temptations to overcome. From 1977-2003, —26 years–the religious demon was in the driver’s seat regarding charismatic manifestations. I was completely duped. yet in 2003—, once I prayed “Lord, show me the darkness that is around me,”— all things continue to be exposed.
In every test, I had the choice of going down and being crushed by the spirit of the anti-christ or rising up in spirit victory. I ROSE UP!

Excerpts from “the New Idolatry” by Pam Sheppard.
In the year 2000, an African American charismatic believer sought my help to be delivered from out of control sex with an invisible being. I only met with her for two sessions, as she left New York State permanently. A striking element in this case is that a spirit entity engaged in sex with the client on a continual basis. In fact, this “spirit” was so bold, that it seized her for sex at the same time that her husband was attempting to do so. As she shared, suddenly her legs forcefully spread open in the chair, right before my eyes , I watched her thighs violently shake and tremble. I have never seen anything like it before, or since.Yet, over the years, more and more cases of spiritual rape have been reported to me. The next set of cases was equally strange. In point of fact, I have counseled far too many churchgoing women who have acknowledged that spirit entities have manifested physically and raped them. These cases have not only baffled me, but they have led to a plethora of questions and concerns about “what does all of this mean.?
For example, Sarah, a Caucasian Presbyterian minister had no occult background. Unlike Eloise, witchcraft was not a factor. Yet she too is raped while her husband sleeps beside her. While Sarah was being attacked, her husband lay immobile, as in an altered state of consciousness far deeper than normal sleep.Since the very first incident, Sarah’s husband has been impotent, unable to achieve an erection. In fear that her husband will find out, Sarah stated that her husband has begun to smell the offensive odor. A pastor of a church, Sarah is about “to lose it.” Her main concern is that the spirit being is attempting to impregnate her, as she is raped at least four times a week.
In less graphic cases than either Eloise or Sarah, faithful, churchgoing Christian women are reporting that they have sexual contact while asleep or in a dream. Most often, the spirit entities manifest as men known to these women. With one exception, the women do not enjoy the sex. For example, Cher is a Haitian born, 35 year old woman who had been dedicated to voodoo gods at birth. An ordained 7th Day Adventist minister of Song, Cher’s manifestations began when she spoke in tongues. Unlike most victims, Cher enjoys the sex. However, she is out of control. While in church ministering, the tongues changes to cursing and foul language. When she is released from the attack, she has no remembrance of what had transpired.
Cases like these have caused me to devote an entire chapter in my next book, “the New Idolatry,” to this strange happening. The chapter is called “demonic copulation.” In reviewing the literature on alien encounters, I learned something rather interesting. Strange encounters humans have experienced with UFO’s have included very few Christians over the last 5 decades. Spirit rape seems to be the enemy’s alternative targeted towards Christian women.When I consider the underlying intent–how spirit rape fits into Satan’s endtime agenda,— I believe it has less to do with sex from a lustful perspective and more to do with sex as an altered state of consciousness.
Through Paul’s warning to the Corinthians about women covering their heads “because of the angels,” I believe that Paul was referring to the fact that fallen angels during the days of Noah, were so attracted to women that they cohabited with them, and produced offspring which the book of Enoch reports are roaming the earth as humans. – today are not wearing veils. With the way sensual way that they worship, they are actually inviting fallen angels to come to them, especially those who call Jesus “their only lover.” They think they are reaching out to the Son of God when in reality, they are calling for the fake Jesus.

LET THE GOOD SPEAK EVIL
People are faithfully going to church, watching Christian television and reading Christian books, who need to be deprogrammed from error that is causing them to be vulnerable to demonic oppression of a very serious nature. In fact, when I have tried to counsel those who have come to me to seek deliverance from the torment of demons, the mixture and error in their spiritual foundation is extremely deep. Therefore, deliverance is severely hindered by the amount of error that these captives have anchored their faith to by listening to pastors in pulpits, watching Christian television or reading the books of various mega preachers.
Evil spirits know it is fruitless to urge the righteous toward sins of the flesh, so demons use another tactic called DECEPTION. The Satanic strategy is planned in the form of teachings and doctrines that appear “good”. The biggest deception is to receive counsel solely based upon the godly life and character of the counselor or teacher. Most false prophets are clean living, righteous, upstanding folk. So to receive their teachings based on their “good character” is what the enemy is after.
Therefore, it is important for you to know that every thing that the enemy does is not always evil as he works under the cover of light. So the strategy of deception is to get the righteous or good person to accept a wrong idea and then to pass it off to others “as truth.”
Certainly, the bible should be the foundation of every Christian. However, it is important to point out that scripture is also used as the basis of false teaching. The enemy has very skillfully woven into a web certain scriptures that will ultimately entrap a child of God like the prosperity gospel, praying in the spirit, tongues, slain in the spirit—I could go on and on!. With each false doctrine and practice, the method is to pull single texts out of their original context. In my work with professing Christians in torment or bondage, the following scripture from the book of James rings true:
WE ARE DECEIVED BY SEEMING TO BE RELIGIOUS, WHEN AN UNBRIDLED TONGUE REVEALS OUR TRUE CONDITION.(James1:26)
I train ministers in our deliverance mentoring program to listen to the unbridled tongue so as to expose the nature of the deception. Also, Paul wrote to Christians that we are deceived when we think ourselves to be wise with the wisdom of this world.(I Corinthians 3:15) Deliverance Mentoring is certaining a humbling process, for very often, Christians in torment must resist the devil by admitting that they have been deceived not only by well meaning Christian teachers, family and friends, but also by their own heart. (Jer 17:9, Isaiah 64:20)
At Pam Sheppard Ministries, we de-program the deceived through our deliverance mentoring program. Trained online ministers are available. For more info, call 518-477-5759

An Excerpt from “the New Idolatry.”
JESUS predicted that endtimes would be like the days of Noah. Beside the flood, the most outstanding feature of Noah’s day was the reason for the flood as revealed in Genesis Chapter 6–namely that fallen angels found a way to have sex with human women and they produced an offering known as the giants, aka the Nephilim. When all is said and done, if we accept the Book of Enoch, the spirit beings who specialize in sex with human beings are not evil spirits or demons but fallen angels who are NOT human and who have never been human..
Here is a passage taken from the book of Enoch:
Ch. 18:10 And I saw a great abyss of the earth, with pillars of heavenly fire, and I saw among them fiery pillars of Heaven, which were falling.
11 And as regards both height and depth, they were immeasurable.
12 And beyond that abyss I saw a place which had no firmament of heaven above, and no firmly founded earth beneath: there was no water on it, and no birds,
12 But it was a desert and a horrible place. I saw there seven stars like great burning mountains
13 And an angel questioned me regarding them. The angel said: “This place is the end of heaven and earth.
14 This has become a prison for the stars and the host of heaven. And the stars which roll over the fire are they which have transgressed the commandment of the Lord in the beginning of their rising, because they did not come out at their proper times.
15 And He was angry with them, and bound them until the time when their guilt should be consummated even for ten thousand years.
Chapter 19: 1: And Uriel said to me: The angels who have had sex with women shall stand here, and their spirits, having assumed many different forms, are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons as gods, here shall they stand, until the day of the great judgment in which they shall be judged and are made an end of.
2 And the women also who went astray shall become sirens.
3 And I, Enoch, alone saw the vision, the ends of all things: and no man shall see as I have seen.
In summary, the book of Enoch reports of the union of angels and humans resulting in bloodthirsty giants who scar the earth and abuse its inhabitants. The angels, or watchers as they are called, also contributed to humanity’s decline in Noah’s day by introducing all sorts of forbidden arts. Although these angels come to be imprisoned at the ends of the earth, their spirits continue to wreak havoc by inciting humans to commit idolatry (see 1 En. 19:1). Yet what of the women who associated with the watchers? As if an afterthought, 1 En. 19:2 briefly recounts the fate of these women as well. According to the Greek manuscript tradition, the wives of the angels who transgressed are to become sirens, mythological creatures often associated with seduction. Perhaps this is what is called “incubus.”
The book of Enoch and the Bible indicate that the angels who had sex with women are imprisoned forever. They shall not ascend into heaven again for all eternity, and they are bound on earth for all eternity. (Enoch Ch 14: 5) So if these angels are bound forever, then who are the entities who are having sex with women today?
I believe the answer is in Enoch, Ch 19:1, namely, the jailed angels have the capacity to “take on many forms.” Therefore, though jailed, they can still “transport” their spirits similar to what occultist refer to as “astral travel.”
For those who do no not accept the veracity of the Book of Enoch, I can think of a few other possibilities. .For example, perhaps more of God’s angels have fallen from heaven in modern times, long after the bible was written and published. Nevertheless, from a biblical perspective emerges yet another possibility. Since there is an indication that the abyss will be opened in the last days and entities referred to as locusts will ascend upwards from the bottomless pit in the last generation., perhaps the pit has already been opened.
Revelation 9:1 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss.
2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.
Yet another possibility, as depicted in Revelation 12, the war in heaven may have already taken place and Satan may no longer be in the heavens but he is now only able to roam about on earth. Likewise, when Satan is kicked out of the heavens, so are his angels. Surely, among Satan’s angels are those who, like their predecessors in Noah’s time, lust after women and have sex with them while the women have entered into passivity, facilitated by an altered state of consciousness. This is a potentially viable possibility, since most of the women who report a sexual encounter indicate that it happened at bedtime when they were half sleep and half awake. Nevertheless, my theories lead to the conclusion that spirits that engage in sex with women are NOT DEMONS.
So who are they? I believe that they are the very same fallen angels though bound in hell, remain capable of astral projecting one of their numerous forms into the bedrooms of Christian women. If you have experienced spirit rape, help is available. Call 518-477-5759

Mistakes and Deliverance
It has been my experience that the doorway UNKNOWINGLY left wide open to demonic torment is a captive’s fear of ever making a mistake. Demons take great pleasure in tormenting people who they can control with criticism, shame and accusation. As a deliverance counselor, I realize that for each captive, there is a different root cause. For the most part, a fear of making a mistake comes from how you were raised. Those who have been under the authority of extremely judgmental, critical parenting are inclined to either become passive or aggressive in their response to this fear.
The passive ones try to “always be correct and proper” because they are afraid of suffering the consequences that judgmental parenting brings. On my web caseload over the last 9 years, those who are constantly hearing critical, accusing voices in their minds have been raised by critical, judgmental parents. Perfectionism in passive people also leads them to be ardent people pleasers–a breeding ground for depression.
The aggressive folks tend to become the rebels of the world who often seem to make mistakes on purpose and by design because they simply enjoy annoying people. In other words, “if you made me the black sheep of the family, I’m going to play that role with style and gusto! If you told me when I was 10 years old that I am going to be no good, just like my father, well, I am going to be “my father” to the 25th power. So watch me, Mom, as I go through the revolving prison door of recidivism. Watch me and suffer Mom, because you have tried to frame me with a fear of being like a Dad that I didn’t even know, because of you and YOUR failures!
Here is another pattern. January 2 of every year could be renamed “Get Rid of the Fat Day. There are unseen reasons why some of us got fat. Here is the scenario for the rebel: ” If you have called me “fat” all of my life when I was not fat but voluptuous and my sensuality disturbed you, Mom—-I am REALLY going to become fat just to show you what FAT REALLY IS AND that I don’t care what you think of my body type!!!!”
Scenarios like these are often played out on a sub-conscious level. Anytime you don’t know who you are and why you are behaving the way that you do, you are a prime target for demonic interference. As a deliverance counselor, this is the reason why I am less concerned about whether or not you ever experimented with the occult or drugs than I am about how you deal with “making mistakes.” It does not take a great deal of education to become a great learner. Learning involves listening and mimicking. Even if we can’t read or write, life itself is going to teach us something!!!” If you have never made a mistake then you have not learned very much.
For the Christian in particular, God designs the lessons of life disguised in the form of obstacles, mistakes and difficulties through a maze of trials, tribulations, troubles and tests. Why? Because the Christian walk in the spirit by faith in God alone is what earns us our eternal crowns. Without any ashes, there is no beauty. Without failure, there is no glory. Without falling, we really don’t know how to stand. We are sinners who must totally rely on the Holy Spirit’s leading in order to please a perfect God. He is pleased when we can resist the pride of our sinful nature and embrace our ashes.
I was born 68 years ago. I was born again almost 35 years ago. All I have to give to God is a life of mistakes and failures. These are my infirmities, and like Paul, I actually glory in them. I know that I glory in them because when I speak or write about my mistakes, I have no inner pulling of sorrow, shame or regret in my heart. I know that I glory in them because I give practically no thought or expression to the things that man would consider successful accomplishments. I glory in my mistakes because I have come to know that the power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is all over me when I can acknowledge my own weaknesses.
There is a difference between making a mistake and being a mistake. If I am in Christ, then I am not a mistake. On the contrary, if I rely on “self,” then I am functioning as a mistake. What the bible confirms is that God did not believe that I was a mistake or I would not be here. God does not believe that YOU are a mistake or YOU would not be here either. When we begin to see even an iota of how big and all-consuming God is, then we will stop worrying about our mistakes and the demons that are assigned to us will be bound and gagged.
Twenty eight years ago, I committed a serious sin that brought about its consequences and its ramifications. On last Friday, the religious demon assigned to me sent me a dream that showed me committing the exact same sin and “loving it.” Demons rarely accuse me of sin because they know that I don’t receive or respond to their guilt trips. However, THIS time, they “got me good” because the dream disturbed at least half of my day. The dream was a mockery. What I found offensive is that I was shown that I still have the desire to do the exact same thing, a sin that would be extremely hurtful to God as well as to other people whom I would certainly hurt.
Do I have the desire to commit the sin again? Absolutely not. Would I do so if tempted? Absolutely not. However, here is the truth of it. The flesh DOES NOT CHANGE! In my flesh, I am STILL capable of committing the exact same sin TODAY!!! Yet, though I am capable, I WILL not do it. Why not? Because I don’t walk in the flesh. I walk in the spirit. And because of Jesus Christ, the desires of my heart and my spirit HAVE CHANGED. There is NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
You see, Brethren, Christians who are afraid of making mistakes focus on self-righteousness and not on the righteousness of God in Christ. They are not looking to the cross. They are looking to self. They are trying to please God just as they tried to please their earthly parents. Yet our understanding and practice of perfection is totally different from God’s as it pertains to His people. Take Job, as our classic biblical example. He was as perfect as man can get, pleasing to God, yet prior to Calvary.
That was Job’s problem. He was toooo perfect. He had no mistakes to draw from. Without the mistakes, Job really did not know God very well. Once God allowed the devil to attack Job, Job’s hidden mistakes were revealed. He was focused on “self-righteousness. The true nature of God was also revealed. Once confronted by his religious friends, Job became defensive. Defensiveness is an outgrowth of pride. If you are defensive, then even the very thought of making a mistake becomes a bondage to you. On the real, face it. Mistakes are part of our lives and we will keep making mistakes till our last breath. In my book, “Faces of the Religious Demon” are scores of case summaries of professing Christians who religious demons tormented because their captives were afraid of making mistakes. For one reason or another, deliverance counseling uncovered a complicated pride system at the root.
If I am speaking to YOU, then deliverance counseling or mentoring will help you get the victory in 2012. So call and book a telephone session. 518-477-5759

Happy New Year from Pam Sheppard Publishing. For your spiritual edification, listen to a testimony in song from Wenona Russ
Does a family member manipulate you? Are you easily controlled and dominated? Are you free to be all that the Lord intends for you to be? Much demonic bondage is formed in childhood. For example, if a parent is manipulative, dominating and controlling, a spirit of witchcraft can enter, perhaps as a root of rejection. (Ex 2o:5)
A soul tie is the knitting together of two or more souls that can either bring tremendous blessing in a godly relationship or pervasive destruction. In a destructive soul tie, the will of the captive or victim is un-naturally affected by the stronger will of another,–the abuser or perpetrator— where the captive’s thoughts, emotions, and actions are no longer his or her own. Since we all form soulties with parents, family and other authority figures, no one is exempt from what I call “soul stealing.” Here are some signs of soul stealing through an unholy soul tie:
- Irrational thinking. You act and do things that don’t make sense. In such cases, you consistently evaluate your present circumstances according to a previous context–connected to some abuse you endured in the past.
- You consistently lack joy and peace.
- You are attracted to people who hurt you.
- Your relationships are rarely mutually beneficial and you are always left with the short end of the stick.
- You are often the one in bondage in a relationship. You are the giver and your partner is always the taker.
- You allow family members and friends to cause you to violate your own conscience and principles
- You are easily maneuvered or manipulated by the negative emotions of others, ie their anger, temper, guilt trips and outbursts.
You can’t always run from folk, especially parents, spouses and family members. I have found that the solution is twofold: you must first learn how to govern your own emotions and reactions, by building up your free will and self authority and then you need for someone like me to cast out that persons spirit from you as if it were a demon. As quiet as it is kept, it is actually an unseen demon that has helped the aggressor to snatch your soul and en-trap you into a demonic soul tie that the world calls “a co-dependent relationship.”. The demonic or ungodly soul tie is like an invisible rope between you and the perpetrator. I write about it in more detail in “Faces of the Religious Demon.” Here is a brief excerpt.
“Counseling should place emphasis on no regrets or brooding over things done and undone. To avoid irrational thinking, the captive must re-learn through counseling, how to discern for himself if he is simply ‘thinking,’ or is he being drawn into a state of regretting or brooding, Victory in deliverance necessitates victory over the past, in spite of all its failures. the failures should be dealt with on the basis of I John 1:9. Furthermore, the captive need to learn how to discern his or her own thoughts from those implanted into his mind by demons who use the perpetrator “as a voice.”
In conjunction with deliverance counseling, the truth is that the perpetrator’s spirit may have to be cast out of you, as if it were a demon. Are you ready to be delivered? If so, give me a call at 518-477-5759 to make an appointment for deliverance counseling.
What did Jesus mean by the 4 sobering words, “I Never Knew You?”
After more than two decades, I believe that I now understand why Jesus made such a strange statement, as recorded in Matthew 7: 22, 23:
I NEVER KNEW YOU!
My years of experience in deliverance have exposed one interesting fact. DEMONS LOVE TO MANIFEST! And deliverance workers love to prove the existence of God and the power of the name of Jesus by those manifestations of coughing, growling, hissing like snakes, and so forth. Deliverance workers also tend to indirectly use demonic manifestations to confirm their own spiritual power, ie. “I am an anointed one because demons bow to ME!” If you want to know more, you need the New Idolatry: Here is an answer to why people can cast out demons in His name, yet the Lord does not know them:
“Today I understand very clearly what Jesus meant when He warned that it is a perverse generation who seeks after a sign.Within the nature of perverse flesh, a sign seeker is rebellious, disobedient, stubborn and ultimately ‘wicked’ because God’s people are to walk by faith and not by sight. To allow the devil to validate our God is in itself ‘perverse.’ In like manner, the problem for those who are caught up in casting out of demons is that they use the signs that are manifested by Satan to confirm their faith. Simply put, we believe it ‘good’ based upon the fact that we SEE and experience evil. Yet on the contrary, God expects His people to believe in Him because He IS. Consequently, it is an insult to God that we believe on Him indirectly, simply because demons manifest when we confront them with the Lord’s name. In essence, why should the creature validate the Creator?”
