RENEWING THE MIND BY WALKING ON HOT SAND!

 I am summarizing  some scriptures here, so please  bare with me as I  paraphrase a bit. 

Paul wrote to the Romans, “be not conformed to THIS world but be transformed by the renewing of the mind so that you can prove the perfect will of God for your life.” He also warned the Corinthians about casting down imaginations and thoughts  that could exalt themselves ABOVE the knowlege of God. Paul implied that  all thoughts could be “captured” and brought into obedience to the will of God. We know the general will of God from His word.  However, it is the Holy Ghost Who provides the direction of our individual lives   once our minds have been renewed. 

Therefore, a renewed mind precedes knowing what God’s will for US is.

So I suggest to you that discovering the will of God for your life involves a renewal. There are some key points that I would like to underscore:

  • We are what we THINK we are.  Our thoughts have power to draw both evil and godly energy.  If we have practiced negative self talk, in the same manner, we should consciously practice godly self talk.  Godly thought will bring about godly talk. Godly talk will bring forth the fruits of victory in casting down evil thoughts.
  •  
  • A part of renewing the soul is to learn how to deal with what is uncomfortable.  Walking on the sands of  a beautiful  beach on a hot sunny day has its comforts and delights.  However,if  the sand is very “hot,”  it is difficult to walk on it.  Struggles and failures supply the necessary preparation to learn how to “walk on hot sand.”. 
  •  
  • Where deliverance from demonic oppression is concerned, torment can be a blessing.  Torment wipes out the delusion that “all is well” and knocks off the rose colored glasses. The tormented one is pressured to search for answers and solutions—something that he would not have even considered if he had not desperately sought release from the torment.
  • Anyone who makes desicions either by the influence of an unrenewed mind or emotions is usually weak in his or her will.  The will is the organ that examines, distinguishes, judges and makes decisions based upon the information received from the mind and the emotions.
  • Choices can often be longlasting and unchangeable. We can make the choice but we cannot choose the outcome or the repercussion. In other words, we can choose to sin but we cannot choose the wages of that sin.
  • One of the fallacies is that we assume that we have time to change.  When physical death appears to be “far off,” our will power tends to procrastinate and take chances.  However, when death is a daily reality, we learn to live and make choices that prolong our days.

Once we discover what we need to learn about our own inner struggles, there are other people who will need our testimony and our influence so that that too can be victorious.  A major purpose of struggling is that we can become consolers of those who are struggling in those areas where we have become triumphant.  By planting new seeds of power into our minds, old patterns and habits will be destroyed by the resurrection power of the Holy Ghose.  In a symbolic  context, the seeds are as Jesus said. They are the words of  fruitbaring power.

There is a trained minister with a testimony of "How I Walked on Hot Sand," waiting to mentor YOU

At Sheppard’s Counseling Center, ministers are trained in a unique deliverance mentoring  program called SEW, Spiritual Empowerment Workshop.  These are ministers who have overcome torment, walked on hot sand, and survived.  From domestic violence, to rape, to incest, to alcoholism,  to parents and grandparents who were practicing witchcraft, these men and women have walked on hot sand and survived.  They have a testimony that you need. If you could benefit from their testimony, leave a comment on this post, visit www.pamsheppard.com/online_ministers_available, send a facebook message to www.facebook.com/pamela.sheppard911 or call 518-522-5461

PRIDE IS YOUR ENEMY!

The devil’s deception was broken in my life because I am quick to admit to error and I am not a people pleaser.

Facebook is a place where everyone wants to teach and be heard and few want their followers to know that they don’t know very much.   Rebellion and belligerence is very apparent in their various posts which portrays a rebellious  spirit. Since rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, many Facebook teachers are in the hands of the enemy and God has turned some of  them over to strong delusion.

There are some teachers on fb that have actually put people in bondage with their teachings.  I won’t call any names but the truth is that their pride keeps them from being teachable. The enemy loves pride because deception is made easy when we think more highly of ourselves then we ought to think. I am not an advocate of the world’s self-esteem teaching that has been adopted by the religious world.  Self esteem as defined by the world is when the world has high regards for you.  You are accepted, found to be worthy and considered competent. In other words, worldly self-esteem is rooted in what others think of you. And for this reason, those who seek worldly favor will compromise to obtain and sustain the world’s approval.  Christians of this persuasion find that they are always trying to fit in and in so doing, they disobey the Lord’s will to please others.

I have purposed and established in my heart that my self-esteem is found in Jesus Christ.  The Lord is the only one I need to please because I love truth. When the motives of the heart are not pure, truth will be hidden.  To be pure is to be clear, articulate, unclouded understanding.  Not confused, covered up or clandestine. When something is not pure, it is defiled.  To defile is to contaminate or to pollute.  When the heart is not pure, then Satan’s job is easy because defilement has come from within US, usually because of pride. For pride begins with what we say in our hearts and what we believe in our minds. Jesus linked pride to adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy and foolishness. (Mark 7:20-22) A proud mind is not pure because it thinks, feels and behaves in ways that suggest that we think too highly of ourselves.

Pride, self esteem and vanity deny and conceal the truth. These 3 traits will pull you away from the Lord’s will by quenching and grieving the Holy Spirit and your spirit will become blocked from God’s revelation about what is to come.  Pride is also PHONY. Nothing real about it because it puts forth a facade or an act. Pride will cause you to deny your feelings, and pretend so much that you even fool yourself.  But the devil is not fooled. He knows when you are “fronted” before him in your effort to appear to be in control, putting forth that lie when you routinely boast that you are blessed by God. As you over compensate, pride will prevent you from admitting that you need help and therefore the enemy can use your pride to block you from crucial resources.

The proud religious person must ALWAYS appear to be knowledgeable and therefore he or she will never admit to not knowing or understanding a verse of scripture, because they are concerned that others will think them stupid and so they will even lie to cover up their ignorance or their weakness as they  hide the truth to protect their religious image. Such people are already in the hands of  a religious demon. Pride goeth before a fall!

A proud person is not wise either. They make stupid, even costly mistakes. As vanity is excessive pride, a vain person’s conceit will bring sure destruction for self-deception is an open doorway to failure.  Proud people :

  • are outraged when others they that they are superior to them
  • are defensive, always justifying themselves
  • are critical in their efforts to tear down others to build themselves up
  • will hunger for prestige by seeking praise and approval from others
  • adopt the ways of those they are trying to please.
  • make EVERYTHING personal.
  • will live in the past and hunger for “the good old days.”

To the proud I  declare that the world did not create you. The world did not redeem you. When you justify yourself before men, you establish them as your lord with authority and you enable the enemy to deceive you. Remember. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

If you are too proud to admit that you have been worshipping the fake Jesus, you are trapped in a pit of religion.  There is help available.  Come join our facebook group. Either comment in this post or send a message to www.facebook.com/pamela.sheppard.911

If you are in bondage, we can help you.  Call 518-477-5759

How to Recognize a Lukewarm Christian: My Story by Minister Francine

A Lukewarm Christian is no Christian at all because a lukewarm Christian was never saved in the first place. I just had to jump right in and lay out the truth. Now that that’s out of the way, I’ll make my confession. I used to be a lukewarm Christian. I was a false convert years ago when I thought I believed in Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I did not. I was a false conversion, and what Pam Sheppard describes as a counterfeit birth.

I was brought into a Word of Faith church where I had repeated  the demonic sinners prayer a few times too. False converts are luke warm, false converts are those who Jesus will spew, or vomit out of his mouth. Well my friends, I was ripe for the spewing. I thank God Almightly that He drew me to Himself , to the cross of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and to Godly sorrow.

My friends, in those days, I was hooping, hollering, shouting, falling down slain, with the best of them. Or should I say the worst of them. Yes, I most definitely should say the worst of them. That was then, but now I want to warn you, and ask you to please examine yourself, and make sure you are in the faith. Examine yourself, and make sure you are  not a counterfeit birth like I used to be. We hate to be considered a lukewarm Christian. We can get puffed up, when someone dares say, we may not be saved. But time is running out, and always has been . Each day we move closer to the return of Christ. Pride not only goes before a fall, it can usher us straight into hell.

The day I realized that I was an unsaved religious, sinful, lukewarm Christian, was difficult at best. But God drew me to the cross of Christ, where there was forgiveness, joy unspeakable and a realization that I was nothing. I am nothing, but in Christ I became something.

Lukewarm Christian’s Need to get Saved…Choose

My friends, a lukewarm Christians need to get off the fence and choose whom they will serve. If you have no zeal, or concern for the things of God— beware. Don’t take offence, I was once flippant about the things of God. This is a sign of being unsaved. If your pride  keeps you from examining your self …Beware. If you get angry if someone implies you may be unsaved, and experienced a counterfeit birth…beware!

Always remember the words of Paul the Apostle who commanded that we examine ourselves to be sure we’re in the faith.
Please stay focused and committed to reading this blog.
 PAM SHEPPARD has over 25 years experience as a pastor, and her expertise in deliverance counseling is second to none. She has been conducting deliverance sessions, and casting out demons for 37 years. This one fact alone should beckon you to the phone to make the call at 518-477-5759.
If you suspect you have experienced  a counterfeit birth/false conversion, call Pam.

Again, don’t be ashamed if you think you may have a ” counterfeit birth. Your first step to true freedom in Christ is your own truths, and who you know yourself to be. Mostly every minister, under Sheppard’s Counseling was a product of  a false conversion at one time or another. They each  recieved deliverance counseling or mentoring from Pam. We were not afraid to examine ourselves in light of scripture, using Pam Sheppard’s groundbreaking deliverance model. In fact, Pam Sheppard coined the term “counterfeit births” and she is an expert on the topic.

ARE THERE ANY PROPHETS TODAY?

To answer that question, ARE THERE ANY PROPHETS TODAY–  one of the signs that we are living in the last days is the emergence of various internet watchmen. The prophets of old were watchmen. They warned God’s people about “what’s goin on” in the religious world. Some–not all–of these websites are inspired by present day prophets.

Their tools are different. All prophets SPEAK because they are compelled by God to do so. Today, the watchman’s voice is heard predominately through the written word, while others may speak out in a video. Some emphasize informing the people about specific false prophets and ministries. That is an exhaustive task that requires a 24/7 devotion, because there are so many false prophets and ministries to expose. Since these prophetic web ministrues  only target high profile people and their false practices,  they are hindered by not covering other ministries that are equally  noteworthy but only known locally.

Much falls between the cracks.

I preach repentance and the return of the Lord. I cast out demons and I receive visions and dreams.

I used to be a watchman on the web exposing false prophets with a website that I have since closed down called “Beware Christian”. I had to literally DROP IT, because it devoured  too much of my time and I found it counterproductive FOR ME as an author, a counselor and a trainer of ministers.  Nevertheless, I thank God for prophetic, watchman type ministeries of Midnight Cry, Straight is the Way, Deception in the Church,Equip, Paw Creek and others. I now refer seekers to them and I do “another thing.”

To really answer the question in the title, we need to look at the new testament. The prophet that stands out in the gospel days of the Lord’s own ministry  is John the Baptist. The Lord said that John the Baptist is the greatest of ALL prophets, so we need to look at John’s ministry rather closely. John’s prophetic ministry was essentially that he prepared the people of his day for the FIRST coming of the Lord by preaching repentance. John the Baptist did not have the gift of perdicting the future as did the Apostle John. It should be noted that when Jesus called John the Baptist the greatest prophet, the Apostle John was not yet so anointed as a prophet.

However, together, I believe that  BOTH Johns are a composite template of a present day prophet. A present day prophet is one who:

  • Like the Baptist, prepares the last generations for the SECOND coming of the Lord
  • by preaching repentance.  The job is now complicated by the fact that thanks to the organized church and it easy believism, I accept Jesus into my heart, sinner’s prayer practices, so many believe that they are saved but the one who they “accepted” is the fake Jesus, Jesus Sananda Immanuel.
  • Like the Apostle, present day prophets will be given supernatural predictions that are specific to the endtime survival of the elect of God.For example, when we cannot buy and sell, endtime prophets will be able to multiply “the loaves and the fishes” and bring the water from the rocks aas did Moses—AS THE HOLY GHOST LEADS!
  • During the reign of the Anti-Christ, end time prophets will move in the supernatural gifts of the Spirit because miracles, healings, and supernatural power will be needed in order for God’s people to survive, a power simiilar to that of Moses as he brought God’s people out of the bondage of Egypt. Casting out of demons will be one of the prophet’s manysupernatural gifitings not according to the prophet’s will, but at the will and command of the Holy Ghost.

Spiritual discernment will be essential to distingush between a false and a true prophet for both shall have supernatural powers.

Revelation 18:4 WHO IS SHE?

    Jesus warned in Revelation 18:4 “COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE.” After the fall of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, I thought that Revelation Ch: 18 was fulfilled right before my eyes  for several reasons.  However, one fact caused me to know that the dust fallout in NYC and the fall of “world trade” were not the complete fulfillment of this chapter.  Why?  Because the World Trade Center may be rebuilt.  The scripture clearly states that when Babylon Falls, there will be no rebuilding of her. Yet as did others, I presumed that either NYC or on a larger scale,  America is Mystery Babylon.

Pam Sheppard, Author

I began to tell people to come out of my home town, the Big Apple while others were shouting, “Leave America.”  A small exodus has occurred on both fronts: with NYC dwellers moving either upstate or out of state and others, fleeing the US have taken refuge in Canada.Some prophets are saying that the remnant in this country are going to fly away to the Carribean when things get really dangerous here.

After a few years, I realized that NYC is not Babylon. Could it be America? Perhaps.Yet   if we left NYC or America, where in the world shall we go, even if we had enough money to get there!!! The Carribean has too many hurricanes!  So I don’t think that Jesus would warn us to do something that was not possible for ALL of His elect to do.

 In fact, I don’t believe that Mystery Babylon is a physical place.  I am not alone in my belief that Mystery Babylon is symbolic of the world system which also includes the organized religion.   Why the church?  Well, when I look at the 4th verse of Revelation 18:  I notice two words:  “My People.”  Where are the Lord’s people?”  Well, for the most part, they are members of  the organized religion, be it Catholic, Protestant, denominational or word of faith.  God’s people are in the system known as “church.”

  There are many reasons why I believe that besides the political and economic systems, the organized church is a part of the world. Yet, I center on ONE reason.  Since  the job of the organized church around the world is to tend the sheep, failing to feed the sheep  truth by sound doctrine is a serious
matter. No one can deny that the entire church system is “heeding seducing spirits and spreading doctrines of devils.” (I Tim 4:1-4)

  However a part of “tending” the sheep is to provide protection from wolves in sheeps clothing.   When the wolves predominate in both the pulpits and the pews, then those who are really God’s elect are in serious danger.   You may be having bible study with a wolf.  You may be submitting yourself to a wolf to pastor you. The irony is that in vain, churchgoers continue to religiously and faithfully comply with organizational expectations, yet without understanding or realizing that unseen forces continue to wreak havoc on committed people.
When people go to church expecting to receive salvation, come away with spirits of torment and divination, something is “definitely wrong.”  I know that “sheep that say baaa”  are considered stupid. However, it doesn’t take the genious of a rocket scientist to realize that “church”  is  not  a safe place
today.  So as Jesus warned, you need to obey Him:  “Come Out of Her, My People, lest ye be partakers of Her sins, lest ye receive of Her plagues.”
Church is a dangerous place, Beloved.  As “last days” believers, you need to come out of Her.

HOW SATAN USES FALSE ASSUMPTIONS AND CONFIRMATION


Pam specializes in "Knowing the Enemy"

 The enemy really designs his deception based upon his knowledge of us.  The secret desires of our hearts  and our assumptions provide religious demons with  both the blueprint and the building blocks of the grand deception that fuels  the enemy’s overall  plan.  The plan begins as a kind of conspiracy theory which answers the questions , “what makes him or her tick? And if I do THIS,  then will he or she do THAT?”  What the religious demon has to do is to find a way to “guide our steps.”  There is no greater thrill than for a religious demon to manipulate and control a child of God and cause that person to become both his prey and his captive.

So I believe that we overcome by first knowing ourselves.  When you know yourself better than the enemy knows YOU, then you are on your way to victory.  For example, if you are an achiever, your desire to succeed CAN BE a key contact point on the blueprint and the religious demon will begin to “build the plan.”

Consider the movie “the Devil’s Advocate.” An advocate is a lawyer, and Keanu Reeves, “the advocate” was a lawyer in the movie, as was the devil, played by Al Pacino.  The  devil’s plan to guide the steps of   his advocate began with setting Reeves up  to win every case as a defense attorney.  By doing so, Pacino
said to himself, if I  cause Reeves to win every case, will he  to literally do “anything” to win when it appears that he may lose his first case? Will he neglect a sick wife?  Will he ignore his mother’s warnings?  Will he even cheat to win? Will he hide evidence?

In the movie,  the devil had been watching the advocate from the time he was born, and he wanted to see if he knew  Reeves better than the advocate  knew himself.  Just in case the advocate had any surprises in his back pocket, the devil  had a back up plan.  His first plan was to cause Reeves to risk
everything in order NOT TO LOSE A CASE.  And when that didn’t work, Pacino’s final plan was even better.  What was the foundation of the entire devil’s conspiracy?  It was the vanity of the advocate relative to his desire to always succeed and excell.

Vanity was the advocate’s Achilles heal. Where Reeves went wrong was in his assumptions. He assumed that he was winning each and every case because of his skill, when in reality, the devil was helping him to win.

So point number one in trying the spirits is this: When you go wrong in your assumptions, you have given place to the devil.

What is an assumption?

An assumption is taking for granted that a particular supposition, fact or circumstance is true. It is prematurely accepting as truth, what is merely an hypothesis or a guess.   For example, when I reflect upon my very first assumption as a Christian, I “assumed” that because I had power in my hands to heal, that:

1.  the healing power was from God;

2.  that God was calling me to minister healing.

It took about 25 years for me to find out that “the healing power that I had was NOT from God.”  So logically speaking, if the the power was not from God, and if it was not from ME, then it must have come from the enemy.  If the power came from the enemy, then what was his agenda in giving me the power?

When I “tried the spirits” on this matter, I realized that I had first manifested healing power while I was a new age occultist.  When I became a Christian and I saw in the bible that Jesus is a Healer, I just “assumed” that since I was now “born again,” I could simply transition occult healing into my
Christian work for God.   WRONG!!!  Along this same train of thought, we “assume” that because what we are doing is similar to what the early apostles did, that we are doing “the same thing.”  It ain’t necessarily so.

With every Christian, the enemy assigned to you is going to “set you up” to be disappointed in God, so that eventually, you will be so frustrated with failure, that you will throw your spiritual hands up in the air and declare, “I’m done with this.”  This was the intent of the healing power I operated in.  The religious devil’s  motive was to frustrate me when those I laid hands on did not “keep” their healing.  This works also in the opposite direction.  If the sick keeps the healing, then “the healer” will assume that he is operating off of divine power, when he is not.

Consequently, the devil remains in control and can exercise authority in the healer’s life whenever he sees fit.

 

Assumptions are constantly made by Christians who believe that  “the 3 witnesses rule”  is an indication
that a sign, wonder, message or circumstance is  “a confirmation” from God.Confirmation!  Its a twelve letter dirty word that covers a wide field of consideration! In fact,  Satan and his crew get many chuckles out of this one.

There are so many varieties of “confirmations” that it is hard to present one representative example, so I’ll have to  make one up.  You had a dream that you should move to Georgia. Or perhaps someone from your church prophesied over you—“God has called you to minister in Georgia.”   The same day, you heard Ray Charles sing, “Georgia on my mind.”  Then  someone called you on the telephone from Georgia, but it was a wrong number. In the afternoon, a friend stopped by and gave you some peaches.  Georgia peaches.

“So there it is” you say to yourself.  I got 3 signs or witnesses that provide “confirmation” to my dream or prophetic word.  God wants me to move to Georgia.

I use  such a ridiculous example to highlight what foolish believers do constantly.

The”confirmation” thing is nothing but an assumption, not based on fact, not based on truth. When God sends a message, He does not have to confirm it. He may, or He may not. Here is an instance in my life where God supernaturally “showed and proved.”

I had recently divorced my last husband because his drug addiction became unbearable.  However, I still loved him very much so I was vulnerable to him  if he attempted to reconcile. I thought, “since he had not cheated on me since we were married, perhaps I should not have divorced him.”

One morning, I dreamt I saw a mudslide.  My husband jumped into it.  When he got up, a woman was hidden underneath him—in the mud.

As I lay there, considering the meaning of the dream, the phone rang.  It was my ex.  He wanted to reconcile.  I listened but I was quiet, remembering the dream I had just 5 minutes before the call.

I got up out of my bed, and walked into a room that had once been his den.  Laying in the middle of the floor, in a room that I had cleaned several times was an application for credit, made out by my ex.  What I noticed was that he used a different address and phone number on the application.  So I dialed the number. A woman answered.  I asked “Can I speak to Rich?”  She replied, “He is not here right now.  Who is this?”  I said “his wife..”

The woman went berserk.  She screamed “you are not his wife.  You have divorced him.  I have been his woman for the last 3 years.  So you need to go about your business and leave him alone because Rich is MINE!!!”

So when I try the spirits, this was rather supernatural.  It all occurred within the space of 20 minutes. Something appeared on my floor that was not there for two months!!!!  I dreamed about the hidden woman, “under the mud” of my ex’s secret life 5 minutes before his call.

Was this the devil trying to get me to go over there and shoot somebody and end up in jail? For I also had her address.

Not THIS time! lol. Both God and the devil know that I am too wise and too much in control of my emotions to fall for THAT one. The Lord simply provided me with the hidden information that I needed to stop punishing myself for divorcing an adulterer and for NOT TAKING HIM BACK!!!!  I had every
right to divorce him.

 

At times, God WILL confirm.  When he does, it will not be an assumption.  IT WILL BE FACT AND TRUTH THAT SETS YOU FREE.

  Take it from one who knows. Most confirmation comes from the devil.

Here is another personal experience.   I may have used this real life example before, but it bares repeating because it clarifies my point.  In 1979, I had a dream that I saw a
minister standing on my church’s steps, with a robe across his arm.   He looked at me and said, “Girl, I’m gonna marry You!” In the dream, he was wearing a navy blue suit purchased from Sears and a pair of navy blue swede shoes.

Two weeks later, on a Sunday morning, “a force” was trying to stop me from going to
church.  I “assumed” it was the devil. So I persevered and went out of the door,
walking to church.  Looking back today, I realize that it was God who tried to
stop me from going, or at least an angel sent from God.

When I arrived, the new visiting pastor was at the church, robed and wearing a navy blue suit and blue swede shoes.  I was sitting in the congregation and he set his eyes on
me from the pulpit chair.  Later that evening, my pastor called, claiming that the visiting pastor wanted to meet me.  When we met he said “Girl, I’m gonna marry you cause you sooooo pretty!” I asked, where did you buy your suit?  He said “Sears and Roebuck.”

Plenty of confirmation here!.


Without the dream and all of this “confirmation”, I would  never have given this man a second glance.  He was simply not my type.  So because of all of this “confirmation,”  I assumed “this must be God.”  To make a long story short, it was not.  This minister was one of the worst men to ever enter into my life.  He was a Satanic setup for things that could have literally “taken me down and out!.”

So when you have circumstances occur that are similar, with all kinds of confirmation, a try the spirits tip is this—- ,

Run like a bat let out of hell.  Its the devil.


The excuses that we make to explain why we find ourselves under demonic attack are another form of an assumption.  My meaning is better explained by illustration.  I founded a church with a name that I discovered more than a decade later, was given to me by a religious demon.  My kind of vanity was that I “assumed” that because the Denomination I was ordained in was defiled, that my ministry was clean.  You need to know that just because your opposition may be wrong, that doesn’t make you RIGHT!!! I was unaware of
this truth,   so I “assumed”  that the church that I founded was superior to any of the churches in the Denomination.

So when my church and I came under a persistent attach from all sides, I assumed, “we must be doing great things and the devil is angry.”  So the attack caused someone with a personality type like mine to brace myself and hold on to my church and ministry with an even stronger grip.  Little did I know that “this was the motive for the attack—that I would hold on to what God wanted me to let go of, as long as I assumed that I was doing God a service.

 

Usually when demons bombard you with frequent attacks, they are already in control.  They simply want you to assume that you have a fighting chance.  According to Jessie Penn Lewis, “They attack a person because they are in possession, but make him think and believe it to be an indirect attack, ie. through another person.  The blame is placed on the man himself or someone else, or on anything but the true cause, so that the intruder may not be discovered and expelled.  It is therefore important that all ‘excuses’ should be examined, i.e., the ‘reasons’ for such and such an unexplainable
manifestation.

 

The causes should always be gone into, for by believing a wrong interpretation of the manifestation, more ground is given to the lying spirits.  The believer may be refusing ground on the one hand, and giving new ground on the other, unless he examines all the suggestions which come to his mind
concerning his condition.” (War on the Saints, pg. 176)

 

This is what the enemy is looking for when he takes advantage of the assumptions you make.  He is looking for “new ground” to continue to deceive and control you. Those who are most vulnerable are those who love their ministry more than they love Jesus Himself.  Anyone who has a ministry should not assume that it was God who gave it to you.  So go back to what was going on in your life when you assumed that God called you into ministry.

 

Since I have “been there and done that,” it is easy for me to recognize those who are themselves possessed  by a ministry that they assume  God gave to them.  I can recognize an obsessed worker, one who is consumed with either revival, deliverance, setting captives free, healing, even saving souls, which no one does but God.

 

Those who are obsessed by “their” ministries are blind to their condition.  Certainly, helping others, giving of your time, teaching and  preaching,  and un-deceiving the deceived are all rightful things.  Nevertheless, very often, the enemy uses ministry as a distraction to the worker’s own need of deliverance from the enemy’s deception.

 

If you put yourself into the hands of workers like these, you will be subject to both their confusion and their contraditions.  Such workers will seem strong, yet they are weak, loving but they are really stoical and distant.  Why?  Because they are  un-trusting and  afraid of every dark shadow.  Remember.  The
Lord’s yoke is easy and His burden is light.

Anytime you assume that God can’t do His work without YOU, you are in the devil’s hands.

To better “know your enemy,” SEW deliverance training may be for YOU!

My First Encounter with an Orb by Pam Sheppard

I don’t know when and how I knew that these round circles with lots of dots in them  are what occultists call “orbs.”  When I looked at the photo of the church in Denmark, I could see the same image, 20 or more times over.  (See the first 2 photos below) The pastor labeled the orb on my storefront church  with the word “angel”.

The pastor’s email  was rather interesting because of its timeliness.  I had begun to suspect that demons were in my church as I saw some demonic faces peering at me behind the floral arrangement in front of the window, and also behind the altar.  When I received the email, I was planning to  move the church out of the storefront, not just for that reason but for several others that need not be mentioned at this juncture.

Anyway, I certainly did not believe that this was an angel.  On the contrary, I suspected that it must be a demon based upon what I perceived occurring in my church.  Since we moved a few months later, I didn’t dwell on “the image.”  So I forgot about it until recently.

 

SO WHAT IS AN ORB?

According to photographers, researchers, scientists and New Agers,  an orb is a luminous
circle of light that can be photographed, taken with or without a flash camera.  They range in size from tiny to an average of two to 5 inches in diameter.  Various websites connect the orbs to aliens and ghosts, while the Christian pastor in Denmark believes that the orbs are “angels.”

Researchers and professional photographers indicate that the orbs are not lens flares, nor are they dust or pollen particles in the air.  The strange part is that orbs have predominately been photographed and even seen with the naked eye at occult conferences, in graveyards, masonic lodges and caves.

So my question  is, “why are orbs  now showing up in photographs taken in churches?”

Skeptics reason that the orbs appear in high places and that may have something to do with the camera.  Not so.  My storefront church has low ceilings yet there is an orb that manifested on the film.  Some say that they are only visible at night in dark places.  Yet, the picture of the storefront church was taken in the daytime.  Below are some other pictures of orbs taken in a masonic lodge, and other religious settings. I have in my possession, several more pictures—some taken at the Notre Dame Cathedral, another in a cemetery and some in caves, and other “spiritual” buildings.

Here is the picture taken in the storefront.

The picture below is the pastor’s church in Denmark.  There are at least 20
or more orbs in this photo.

I also have a picture packed away in a huge box that were taken in the denomination I was ordained in. On the photo, are orbs but these are orbs with faces in them  They remind me of the cartoon, “Casper the Friendly Ghost,” only their mouths are in a scornful, mocking grimace. Here are a few more pictures of orbs taken in “spiritual” places:

So, what do I think this all means as it relates to the organized, institutional church? 

I was born again at home in 1977, never having attended a church a day in my life.  In 1979,   I received 3 dreams that guided me to a particular church—messages that I “assumed” were from God.     Four year later, I was called out of that church, and then again in 2003.  The first time I was called out was in October 1983.  I was at a Kenneth Copeland Believer’s Convention held in Atlanta.

Asleep in my hotel room, I was awakened by a bellowing, booming voice that sounded like mighty waters, loud trumpets, and thunder ALL AT ONCE.  I jumped out of the bed and hit the floor where I bowed down on my knees.  The voice of thunder only said 3 words: COME OUT, SEPARATE. Must have said it 20 times or more.

I came out of the church a few weeks later,  but I went back to the same Denomination in 1987, where I caught un-holy hell for the next 17 years until God stepped in and led me out in 2004.  I waited for 2 years for the Lord to lead me to affiliate with a different church system.  Not only did He not do so, but  when He spoke again, the Lord compared the church to “a condemned building.” He has also revealed that “He NEVER sent me to the Denomination  in the first place and that the 3 dreams that led me there “WERE NOT FROM HIM.”

Once I was out, I thought to “go back for a visit.”  The Lord spoke again, this time asking me a 4 letter question that brought the fear of the Lord upon me.  He asked, “Are YOU Lot’s wife?”

After hearing that question, I won’t even step inside of a church building for a wedding or a funeral.  By nature, I am a balanced, rational, non-obsessive personality.  However, regarding entering church buildings, I am adamant to the right side of obsession.  I don’t tell others what to do or not to do.  I just take care of ME and I keep Lot’s wife ever before me in my conscious and unconscious mind.  When a close relative died 6 years ago, I walked into the church building, looked at the body for less than a minute and I walked out—very, very fast.  I sat in the car until the funeral was over.

This is me.

As such, I don’t attempt to cause others to be as adamant as I am about this point.  I pastor and mentor members of my online fellowship called RESCUE. On occasion, I make contact with people   who agree with me on most points yet they admit that they see nothing wrong with going to church, and I do not contend with them about this issue.

  Recently, one of my clients stated that “her church was different.”  I simply advised her to  “go and take some pictures.”   She did.  Here is the photograph of her church.  It is filled with orbs.  The biggest one is on the far right of the stage.


Without any advice from me, the Lord led this woman  out of this dwelling place of demons called a church, once she saw the orbs.” Once she saw the orbs, she was convinced.

So what do I believe is happening??? I suspect that the fact that orbs are now manifesting in churches is a sign that devils and demons have taken over ALL Christian pulpits.  Church buildings are like haunted houses—filled not with ghosts but with evil spirits.

Certainly, demons have been attracted to churches for centuries and so that is no surprise. Moreover, doctrines of demons are many.   However, I believe that  demons literally  “took over” when the church began to preach an “I accept Jesus” doctrine, taking salvation out of the hands of God and putting eternal life into the hands of man.  This is the reason why ALL churches are affected, in every nation of this world.  A few centuries ago, a New York preacher, Charles Finney allowed the demons to use him to bring “a new gospel” into all churches.”  If you have ever said, “I accepted Jesus,” you too have been affected.”  None  are exempt. I was because the gospel was not preached to me in church or by anyone who goes to church.

So if you think that your church is the exception, I suggest to you that the next time you enter the building,

“TAKE SOME PICTURES!!!!”

THE ENEMY AND DELIVERANCE MINISTRY

The bible warns us to “be not many masters, for ours is the greater condemnation.” In other words, “Don’t rush in where fools ought not to tred.” Or “something like that.’  At least, take heed of the worldly proverb which says, “don’t bite off more than you can chew or else you will choke,” if you get my drift.  The bible also reveals  through the prophet David, that man was made “lower than the angels.”Oh, he got THAT right.” 

Only ONE human being—the God/man of the universe— has
power over angels, both divine ones and evil ones.  His name is Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  When we have faith in Him, then when we confront devils, they must obey us,—not because of USbut because of Him!!!  So I warn the so-called “Army of God,”  the Dominionists, the Manifest Sons of God, the army of the locusts or “The New Breed,”—by whatever
handle they are using at the moment.   If you are out of step with the Lord, then don’t expect that the Holy Ghost will protect you from Satan’s army.  Since the major belief among you is that as a  special “Superman type” you are  going to overcome the devil, just know that Satan is laughing at you. When the enemy comes out against you, without the backup of the Holy Ghost,  hopefully you will NOT be dealt with more harshly than were the sons of Sceva. 

Until you’ve been standing “toe to toe” with the enemy, you haven’t a clue of what devils and demons can do to you. After 30 years in ministry—25 of those years in deliverance—, I speak from experience.  When God finally  “un-deceived” me, He politely informed me that “He didn’t call me into deliverance ministry.” 

So since I knew that I didn’t “call myself,” THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER CHOICE.  I didn’t have to be a Rocket Scientist to figure out that “the devil called me into deliverance ministry.”  Simple
logic told me that if the devil called me into deliverance ministry, then “the enemy is in FULL control, the author and the finisher of it.” 

I have had many “encounters” with the enemy in what is called “deliverance ministry.” I have watched  all of  the pre-staged shows, the “charades,” and even the circuses, where demons play games and cough,vomit,convulse, whine, growl, talk,  roll, prophecy, and hiss like snakes. The foolish then believe
that because “demons manifested,” the captive is now free. WRONG! I have stood flabberghasted, as a demon picked up a crippled person OUT OF A WHEELCHAIR—a professing Christian who never walked—and mobilized  her to walk down a long aisle toward me in what I call “the Frankenstein
stroll”, screaming the F word, bellowing in a Dracula-type voice,  blaspheming and trying to hit one of those present in the head with a bible
.

The reality is that casting out demons is just the beginning of freedom. Complete freedom can only be obtained when a captive is able to receive the total truth about self, God and the ways of the enemy that trapped him or her off in the first place.

  Demons are like actors who far excel over the master Houdini’s of this world. They can imitate any human voice, appear in a mirage as any  human being, and they communicate with each other
telepathically!!! Whatever you see with your human or even your spiritual eye is “not what you see!!!”   Like movie stars, they like to put on a show.  They particularly like to mock Christians.   So be careful, New Breed!  Even your  “generals” like Todd Bentley haven’t a clue.   You can not  “take back what the enemy has stolen,” because the enemy has stolen YOU!” That’s right!  Joel’s Army is working for Satan!  Get a grip, people!!!  Come out from under Satan by resisting pride.  Humble yourself under the might hand of God and admit that you are in gross error.

Once I got wise and realized that the enemy is in control of deliverance ministry and  any movement that uses the term “spiritual warfare,”  I put on the breaks. 

 So how did I defeat Satan’s personal agenda against me?

 First, I reclaimed my commonsense and learned how to try the spirits.  Throughout,  I stayed at the cross of Calvary!  I resisted personal pride by allowing the Holy Ghost to break me. Therefore, I lost all ambition to be anyone special. It just LEFT!!!  Nothing IN me desires to be a part of Joel’s army as I have been stripped of personal ambition. I no longer seek the help of mega preachers to mentor or embrace my ministry.  In fact, I no longer have “a ministry.”  I no longer stand behind any pulpits nor do I answer to any man’s authority.  Even though man has ordained me and I remain in good standing with my credentials, I no longer submit myself to the approval  of men. I will not be
called, “pastor” any longer, or “Rev” any longer.  When people call me by those titles, with tact, I correct them.

I have ONE General.  Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

 I walk by faith and not by supernatural signs and wonders.  One of my practices is to quickly   admit when I am wrong. I not  only acknowledge my error without rancor, but I also make immediate changes.  When, after 25 years,  God said to me, ” If you stay in that denomination, I will not
be able to use you.  But let them put you out,”  I did just that and in 9 months, I was “outta there!”  When I found error in one of my 6 books, I tried to  immediately take it off of the market.  When that failed, I no longer market it. When the Lord revealed that the enemy had taken over my church, I shut down a church that I loved—one that  I had founded 12 years previously.  Whatever God shows me, I DO ACCORDINGLY– once I have tried the spirits and I am assured that it is HIM.

  As a result, God has been  impressed with my meekness and  my obedience.  Realizing
how truly powerless I actually am, I am constantly shocked when  the Lord honors my prayers. As I write this,   I perceive that I have entered  into  the secret place of the Most High and that  I abide in His shadow. I  stay in His shadow, because, unlike “the New Breed,” I know full well that the devil is exceedingly more powerful than me, in my own strength.  I  also realize that “this is the enemy’s hour,” given to Him by God Himself.  So I understand my boundaries.  I don’t fret, fear, nor am I sad, nor do I say things, like, “Oh, my heart hurts so bad for God’s people.”  I just keep ready and alert for the moment when I perceive that ONE of God’s people has been prepared to be “un-deceived.”  Then I do what “God has called me to do.”

Therefore, the Lord’s  burden is light to me.  As one who continues to cast out devils,  I no longer struggle with them—not even for 5 minutes— once I have uncovered their presence!  I simply  give the command and the Holy Ghost backs me up.  Since I have humbled myself and perceived that in truth, I am nothing where the power of the enemy is concerned,  demons cannot stand before me when  the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is in my mouth.  I have real faith in His Name.  You cannot have faith in His name if you don’t live a life of repentance or if you don’t understand His bodily resurrection.

 Consequently, it is a dangerous thing to use the rhetoric that I hear in the mouths of those who call themselves frontline warriors, locusts, the new breed, etc. You cannot stomp on the enemy or pull the devil’s teeth.  You are not “the violent who take the kingdom by force” for you have already “been taken.”

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

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

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

What does the Bible say?

Controlling Mother

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

To find out More on this and the topic of culture and controlling mothers, my best advice is that you read Pam Sheppard’s books on the topic. Knowledge is power, and Pam has over 30 years experience that you can draw on. Might I add, that your peace of mind, and emotinal health is a priority. Okay then, I hope you join this blog. Shoot me a comment below. I’d love to hear your story!!!

LEAVING THE CHURCH

 

Leaving any social group is not an easy task.  All humans are social beings.
When we hurt and we are forced outside of a group’s circle, we either desire to
vindicate ourselves in one way or another, or we passively stew  in   a
simmering pot of self recriminations, depression and regrets.  When people
reject us because of WHO we are and NOT what we have actually done, then the pattern of our  private times of reflexion will cause us to  consider that
since we couldn’t fit in, perhaps the majority is right and the fault lies in
our own camp.

Let us also not forget that peer pressure from those we have left behind can
certainly  be a stumblingblock to those who for one reason or the other, found
themselves “outside the sheepfold.” Preachers probably denounced you openly from the pulpit in the hearing of your peers.  What follows is that your peers will take it upon themselves to believe that “you are in sin and going to hell
because you left them,” and so they will valiantly  try   to win you back.  When
you run into them in your community, some will sadly look at you and piously
repeat the platitude of “I’m praying for you,” while others may even scold you
with “a piece of their mind” about “you disrespected my pastor!.”

My case was different because as a  former pastor and an evangelist for 25
years,  I was never really welcomed or  accepted in the Denomination in the
first place. Even though I expected  that the people would be delirious with
glee if I left them , coming out of  the church was not a “walk in the park” for
me by any stretch of the imagination.  Commonsense should have told
me, “since these people cannot stand you and only tolerate you
being among them,  why not just shake their dust from your feet?  It is clear
that they will not accept you or the word that you preach,
Pam!”

 

Believe me, after what I endured among them, some might think that  I was
either a glutton for punishment or something “else” was going on with me. The
truth is that I believed that I was God’s prophet, sent to a dying, sinning
traditional church, to cause the people to turn from their wicked ways and
repent.  Therefore, the spiritual abuse that I endured in that place was my way
of “suffering for Christ.”  I strongly believed that God needed me to stay among
the enemy in order to convert them.

So as a root in dry ground, my feet were firmly planted on
hostile territory.  So when  I came out, it was  because “God spoke.”  He warned
very clearly in a dream, “if you stay in that church, I will not be able to use
you, and you shall remain a candle or a light, hidden under a bed. However,
don’t leave on your own.  Let them put you out.”

At the time, my prophetic way of thinking caused me to believe that God
wanted the Denomination  to put me out because He wanted to judge them for not
receiving the prophet that He had sent them.  However, today, I am a lot less
self consumed.  You see, the Lord  eventually revealed that “He
never sent me there in the first place, nor did He  or would He call a babe in
Christ like I was in ’81,   into ministry in such a sinful place for the sheep
in wolves clothing to overtake me!.”
  When I tried the spirits and
looked back at the time I believed that I was called, I could see how the
devil’s hand was in ALLof it.  I had heard from God!  Wow!

So I understand today,  that the Lord  desired the church to put me
out in 2004
in order to save me from  the  pervasive mental anguish of
constantly wondering if I had done the right thing by walking out on my own.  As a result,  I could not blame myself in anyway for coming out since
they put ME out. It was a rather simple process.  Since I did
not attend the annual meeting,  the Bishop used a technicality to remove my
names from the rolls. Since I did not send in my annual dues of $660, the Bishop convinced the delegate voters that removing me was possible and acceptable within the laws of the Church.

Did I expect such a thing to happen?  No, I did not.  I had no idea how they
could even put me out because I was in excellent ministerial
standing.   This  was a technicality never before used,  for there were people
in nursing homes who had not sent in the annual dues for 10 years or more, yet their names were never removed.  Also, I was aware of other active ministers who never paid the dues at any time.  Therefore, I could have fought this arbitrary decision and remained a minister in good standing.  However, since God had already  revealed to me that I MUST come out 9 months before they  actually put me out, I did not protest. I left quietly.  I received only one call from a minister who enquired of my well being.  No one else in hundreds of people tried to convince me to come back so leaving was made easy for me.

 So that no one comes away from this thinking, “Oh, since she was so
spiritually abused, she is against the church entirely,” you need to
know this.
  When I was removed in 2004, I completely expected that God
would lead me to another church organization.  I waited patiently for 2 years
until I heard from the Lord “the next time”.  To my surprise, the Lord  revealed that He had no intention of sending me to any church.  A year or so later, the Lord explained why He desired that I remain “church free.” It has been a progressive revelation.

  As for the Denomination, the new Bishop invited me back in 2008.  He said
“Pam, I’ll support you in EVERYTHING that you do. I want you to
re-affiliate your ministry with us.  We need ministers like you. I am so sorry that the Denomination did not act like the Church.  I want you back.”

When a Bishop says words like that to any minister, he has the power to back
it up.  For example, a bishop has the power and influence to simply
“request” that each and every church under his authority   buy ALL of my books, in bulk.  We are talking about several thousands of  here and loads of dollars here.  I could have become  a best selling author overnight by the request of ONE bishop.  A bishop  can also “suggest” to every pastor under his authority to invite me to preach or conduct seminars in their respective churches. This means even more dollars in my pocket.   The Bishop also  has the power to  appoint me to any church that I desire to pastor.  This means a church salary. One bishop also has influence with 11 others, who can do the exact  same thing for me in their respective regions, “at my Bishop’s  request.”  Now you are talking about millions.   A worldwide denomination, more than 200 years old, the bishops are in complete control over every pastor, minister and church under their charge.

 Two days after speaking with the  new Bishop, “I heard from God.”  He
impressed upon me, “Pam, the 3 dreams that you had in 1979 that caused you to join the Denomination, were not sent to you by Me.  I never sent you to that church, nor did I desire for you to become a minister therein. The words that the Bishop spoke to you two days ago were not inspired by Me either!”

 The Lord did not mention the devil ONE time.  However, since I knew that I
did not create those dreams and that I did not call myself into ministry, the
only other choice was “obvious!”

 Leaving the organized church, and not looking back, is going
to be extremely difficult for some of you, particularly for those that have been
favored or at least well received,  and for those who have had  satisfying
ministries or may even have earned some income. Don’t be surprised, if  it may be somewhat challenging  to break those ties.  When your children have bonded with other children and have participated in daycare, afterschool programs, summer camp and the like, cutting ties is even more complicated. Music ministries are particularly challenging. So are friendships that provided you with opportunities for companionship and Christian fellowship.
To ALL of you, I say these brief words, a few from the Lord, a few from
me:

 If your righthand offend you, cut it off.

If you need to be social, join the Y!  You will be much safer.  Much
better off.

 However,  to help you make up your mind, consider this.  There are 3 main
reasons that you should leave your church, without looking back.

1.  Fallen angels have been feverishly and skillfully working  for about a
century to infiltrate  the entire organized  church system with false doctrines,
in order to be able to gain access to all pulpits.  Demons and
devils have brought plagues into the churches.  People are being
tormented.

2. Since ALL but a few churches are caught up in the decisional salvation
message, namely, that man chooses Christ by repeating a sinner’s prayer or
responding to an altar call, Are there saved people in church?
Certainly!  However, ask them how they got saved.  I am willing to bet that the day they got saved, “they were not in church.”

3.  There is coming a movement called “Joel’s Army.”  In fact, it is already
here. Once this movement really takes hold, Joel’s Army leaders teach
that there will be a civil war among the churches.  Those who are in
disagreement with their doctrines and practices  will be removed or “wiped
out.”  Since this war is not only spiritual but “natural,” you may have to take
a pistol into church with you one day coming  too soon for comfort.

Once you come out, Beloved, then I warn you.  Don’t look
back.

 What do you do in the meantime? Well, you can form a home church.  If you
