BELIEVERS AND PROPHECY

Written by Gloria

Isaiah 46:9-11
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:11 calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

Amos 3:7
Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets

Prophecy is important in our lives as believers, from Old Testament saints like Joseph who learned about the famine before it happened, to Abram who God gave a new name Abraham meaning the father of many nations before Isaac or Ishmael was born. Prophet Isaiah wrote about Jesus and one of David’s Psalm foreshadowed the born again experience when he wrote ‘create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me’. There are many other examples that show that our God is a God of prophecy

The Enemy & Counterfeit Prophecies 

Many Christians go through experiences where pastors give them a prophetic word about their finances, current or potential spouses, children, etc. These prophecies are mainly about God prospering the believer with worldly possessions. The problem with these prophecies is that they are fleshly and appeal to our human desires. Prophecies like this make us the center and shows as if God is in servitude to humans. God is not at our beck and call and any teaching that says God is out to fulfill our desires is a false teaching.

There are those interpreting end time prophecies on various social media platforms but then tell viewers to make a choice for God. In doing so, they mix a truth with a lie and lead people to more bondage. Most of them probably don’t even know they are wrong. I personally was led into accepting Jesus through the sinner’s prayer after watching a “prophetic” end-time movie. The sinner’s prayer gave demons legal right in my life which led to a decade of deception and torment until I was delivered by learning the truth.

Confusion surrounding prophecies – have they occurred or not?  The preterist view states that certain scriptures were fulfilled a long time ago, and futurism interprets the same scripture stating that it will happen in the future. Both views were created with the intention to throw off believers in the middle ages from interpreting scripture surrounding the anti-Christ.

There is also a practice many do called bibliomancy – where one take scriptures or reads a bible character’s story and prophecy the same for themselves. Scriptures need to be read in context meaning you have to determine who the audience is and whether the topic addressed relates to you. A bible character’s story is not to be used to justify personal mistakes, a good example is many who are caught in adultery, are always quick to mention David and speak on how he was still God’s chosen. David’s adultery doesn’t give anyone else the license to engage in promiscuity or adultery. The same people who want to use David’s story show how they cherry pick verses to their liking because the same David suffered for the sin he committed. Just because God said he was a man after his own heart did not make him immune from the consequences of his sin.

THE RESULTS

End time prophecies have been used to create fear; people don’t like to touch the subject as they find it too complex. This leaves many vulnerable to false prophecies which they are unable to test and discern its source and motive.

Many are confused as to what they should be looking for due to so many views and mostly importantly many are being led to deception by saying the sinner’s prayer which opens them up to be demonized.

Distraction – if a prophecy can have you looking in the wrong direction you are pretty much a sitting duck for the enemy e.g. if you get a prophecy that you will be married in a year or so, chances are you will marry someone who shows up in that time-frame who is completely wrong for you.

Apathy – people have grown increasingly weary of hearing that Jesus is coming back as they have heard many prophecies giving the specific date of his return only for it not to happen. What’s even more tragic is that because of this alot of people are mocking what is actually going to happen to their own demise.

The purpose of prophecy is for God to reveal his plans before they unfold. Another reason is stated clearly in 1 Corinthians 14:3
“But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.”

Prophecy is important in a believer’s life and should not be used to promote fear but to forewarn, strengthen, encourage and comfort.

Believers should handle prophecy by testing all things, if it contradicts the scripture then don’t follow it.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.

False Prophets in the IC and Divination

Divination within the organized church community is called “prophecy” or discernment. Power hungry folk aim at controlling the lives and destinies of gullible people. Pulpits are filled with diviners and soothsayers—“charismatic hype masters”—that have no other message but one that caters to our flesh. Like the occult card layers, the divination of old has progressively worsened in our time because the “church community” is flooded with countless pseudo-prophets as it sweeps across worldwide Christendom, it leaves some devastated people in its path.

This is going on repeatedly. Every president in the last 20 years has been demonized and called the Antichrist.  When these so called prophets are wrong, do they apologize and correct themselves?  No.  Scores of books have been written, identifying 9/23/15 as a day of  nationwide doom.  Today is 11/18/15 and I suspect that those who made thousands of dollars off of their doomsday books are preparing for their next hoax. Did they predict the 11/13/15 attack on Paris?  No they did not!

Here is an excerpt from the “New Idolatry.”cover_new_idolatry Click here for paperback and click  here for the e-book

As they prophesy presumptuously in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, declaring things that He has NOT spoken to them is comparable to New Age divination. As they boldly and confidently declare, “thus saith the Lord,” fallen religious angels are leading God’s people away from the truth. Any power or influence that seeks to control the future of others is unquestionably demonic.

Here the TRUE word of the Lord on such matters:

 “I will bring such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth it both his ears shall tingle. And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab; and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down.” (II Kings 21:12,13)

The Fall of Black Preachers: Sin and the Hirelings

As an ordained minister in an African-American Church from 1981-2004, I concur with the contents of this video.  However,  Creflo Dollar, Juanita Bynum and others are really not representative of the black church.  From her book, “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” the author “goes a lot deeper.”  Two words tell the tale: hirelings and sin.  Here is a sample from this shocking  book.:

The denominational  ministers on the local district  formed a fellowship group where the ministers sat around and talked church trash after eating a full course meal. At each of these meetings, I was always the only woman present. Having attended several of these exclusively Denominational meetings, one particular ‘gathering’ stands out prominently in my mind.  One day, Rev. Keith McGillis, the President of the  Alliance and the pastor of the largest church on the Albany district decided he would “school me.” He hollered across the room  to me,  “Pam, you need to have a gimmick.” When I looked puzzled, Rev. McGillis stood up to demonstrate.

“Girl, look here. The niggas ain’t happy unless we give them some entertainment. I remember one day, my niggas must a been out late Saturday night, cause when I looked around, half a dem niggas was sleepin. So I jumped up, ran down the aisle, swung my robe hard to the left, then hard to the right.  Took my handkerchief and waved it in the air, then I threw it down hard to the floor. Twirlin around real fast, I ran out of the sanctuary, went into my office and slammed the door. Girl, them niggas started to shoutin and  screamin, some of dem jumped up and did the Holy Ghost dance.  That’s what I mean Pam. You got to have a gimmick.”  The rest of the ministers laughed in agreement. Rev. McGillis has since moved up to bigger and better things on the national level of the Denomination.

 I never took his advice. I never found a gimmick. Perhaps this is the reason why I could never preach the congregation into a frenzy.  In fact,  on various occasions, my sermons were so poignant that some have jumped up out of their seats and showed me their backs as they were running out of the door while others defiantly sat right In front of me completing a cross word puzzle.  The word I preached was a two-edged sword. For even when my own garment was soiled or spoiled, I still preached holiness.

Come Out of Her, God’s People” is a shocking, yet powerful book.  Click the title for the softcover.

Pulpit Pimps and Warlocks

In my autobiographical book, “Come Out of Her, God’s People,” as a former denominational minister of 25 years, I expose the dark side of the ministry with an array of “pulpit pimp” and warlock horror stories.  Here is a sample of   the account of the first one: the late Rev. Lester. He died of complications due to AIDS, buried in Potter’s Field.   Rev. Lester was my  first pastor:

When I first joined Harriet Tubman, I had heard that Rev. Lester was a native Caribbean. Once I started to work for him in the ex-offender project, our intimacy on the program planning level opened the door for communication on deeper, more spiritual subjects. So one day at the conclusion of one of our staff meetings, I decided to seek Rev. Lester’s advice about a particular  Baptist client.  I recall that I presented him with a scenario regarding an anonymous churchgoer who believed her husband cursed her with a spell. It was my personal assessment that the cheating client was suffering from   guilt feelings and fear that her own  adulterous  indiscretions would soon be uncovered by the husband that she feared.

To my utter amazement, Rev. Lester advised me to purchase a live chicken, cut its throat and use its blood in a ritual of prayers, scriptures and other incantations. Once the lines of communication were opened to discussions of this kind, my pastor also expounded upon  the use of human hair, pubic hair, nails,  excrement and urine. Often times, Rev. Lester recommended cutting pages out of the bible, throwing them into the local river wrapped around a personal item of the  client, or some other strange practice.      Sometimes he suggested that the client repeat one of the psalms 7 times. A few times, he advised that the client bathe in various oils and herbs.

I ignored my pastor’s advice either personally or in my treatment of a client.  Notwithstanding, I was fascinated to listen to Rev. Lester expound on occult subjects. I considered him to be a powerful indigenous faith healer.  Now that I look back, I realize that he was a false prophet but in 1979, I didn’t know what a false prophet was. Once I entered the ministry in 1981 and became a serious student of the gospel of Jesus Christ for myself, I realized that Rev. Lester was more knowledgeable of occult practices than of biblical doctrine.

Dr. Cindy Trimm and Communal Intoxication

 
What do YOU think of this video?  Here is a quote from “Come Out of Her, God’s People” on the subject of communal intoxication that should enlighten you:

“The father of Sociology, Max Weber coined the phrase “communal intoxication.” Communal intoxication is the subnormal ability of magicians, wizards, witches and charismatic religious leaders.  With the God concept at its center, such leaders induce an altered state of consciousness in their followers as demonstrated by the congregants manifestation of intense effusions of excitement and ecstasy.  Communal intoxication has a contagious effect where it can spread throughout an audience, infecting those assembled with corresponding sensations of enhanced emotionality and vitality.  Keep in mind that most of those who were subjects of Weber’s studies included tribal communities on other continents including Africa and the Middle East.  His findings suggest that the altered state of consciousness has both a significant appeal and a correlation to a charismatic leader’s ability to cause large numbers of people to believe that they have been released from various bondages and that they have “heard from God.”

Fortune Teller or Prophet: You be the Judge Part 2by Minister Francine

Fortune teller or prophet? Can you judge? This is part 2. In my last article I explained that ‘prophets in the organized church fool you. They claim their prophecy is from God. But we know from scripture that the devil can prophecy.

You remember the women fortune-teller that prophesied  to Apostle Paul. Paul cast that spirit out. Now you know for sure, devils DO  have information. What then? Well you know that the wheat and the tare grow together. So, how do you know where a prophecy comes from concerning you, or anything else? Listen, I never saw this connection. By the grace of God, I learned that prophets can be fortune tellers from Pam’s teachings.

Pam Sheppard is an expert in deliverance counseling, and has 37 years experience as a licensed therapist, with 30 of those years  as a pastor and  deliverance counselor. Not only that, Pam herself, was deeply entrenched in the occult before she got saved. If anybody can discern who’s a prophet, or whose a fortune-teller it would be Pam. You could do this too, if you study the devil. Plus, you need to be truly saved, to discern truth from falsehood.
I’m going to share an excerpt from Pam’s textbook, entitled ” Faces of the Religious Demon “, the most comprehensive text on religious demons in the world.
Pam writes:
As a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, since March 29, 1977, I am a believer who has withstood a lot of deception simply because I have walked ” too comfortably” in things supernatural.  For three years prior to becoming a Christian, I was deeply entrenched in  New Age occultism, included but not limited to necromancy, hypnosis, telekinesis and astrology.

Once I converted to Christianity  and became exposed to religion, the organized church was ill-equipped to advise me on how to recognize demonic deception.

Now, my dear reader, can you see what I’m talking about? Pam Sheppard has been in the enemy’s camp. Once she became a believer, she of all people, knew good and well that the organized church has NO knowledge of dealing with the devil. Don’t you see? Pam was ENTRENCHED in the occult. If you’ve taken the needed time to browse around Pam Sheppard Publishing to read, and learn, you know just how deep into the occult Pam was.

My friends, prophets in the church absolutely can be fortune tellers. If you read Pam’s books, you’ll know exactly how and why. Even so,  the Apostle Paul had a run-in with a fortune-teller who insisted on giving prophecy about himself and his brethren. Here’s the kicker: the fortune-teller was correct. Apostle Paul cast that spirit of divination right out of her.

Can you really afford  NOT take Pam’s deliverance mentoring program? Pam is hitting you with truth on every side. Time is always running out, and each day we grow closer to the Lord’s return. Are you truly saved? Have you ingested false prophecy? Are you a prophet, who suspects you might  really be a fortune-teller?

Has the devil been revealing information to you? Do you hear voices? Suffering from depression? Caught out there in domestic violence? Are memories of incest or rape harassing you? Do you just need to talk? Call Sheppard’s counseling Center NOW at (518)477-5759. The lines are open, and we’re waiting to serve you.

Fortune Teller or Prophet? You be the Judge Part 1

By Minister Marlene
 
Fortune teller or prophet? If you hold the title of prophet, you might just be under demonic deception. Here’s why: the devil can find out information too. A fortune teller had a fielday with Apostle Paul in scripture. She ran around announcing who Paul was. Apostle Paul cast a demon out from this woman.What we fail to understand, or bother to take note of, is the fact that devils, fallen angels and demons also have information.
 
 That’s why, if you do go to a fortune teller they can give you bits of information. If you’ve paid attention to Pam’s teachings, you will note that she expounds on this topic.
 
 I’ll tell you a little story. When I was new in the word of faith church, a so-called prophet used to follow me around with a word. In fact, after every service, this fella’ was doing a side show. He would start up the madness during fellowship. Seemed he found a new target in me. One day I just had to politely tell him to stop it. I didn’t know much then, but I knew this guy was out of order. Here’s the kicker: members would even ask him if he had a word for them.
 
 Now you tell me, was this fella’ a fortune teller or a prophet? I say he was a fortune teller, because he would conjure up a so-called word from the Lord at the drop of a hat. Plus, as you know from Pam’s counterfeit birth teachings, many in the organized church are unsaved. You yourself know
that the wheat and the tares will grow together.  You know this from scripture.
 

Prophet? The word " prophet " is not just a Christian word. The definition of prophet is one who fortells the future. As well as one who delivers divine messages. We forget that the worlds definition of divine includes the devil. Some worship the devil. Fortune tellers and witches worship the devil, whether they know it or admit it.

The organized church has absolutely no idea of how to deal with demonic affliction. Consider this: I suffered from depression, a demonic spirit, for years. The organized church promoted worldly counseling. Really? Yes they did. We can’t counsel or talk demons away, they must be cast out. I came to my senses and decided to follow Christ’s directives. I cast the spirit of depression out myself. But it took years of me mucking about with the church. I knew I had to leave, what kind of church can’t deal with demons? The anser is: the organized church, every last one of them.

I want to give you now, an excerpt from Pam Sheppard’s textbook on the religious demon, entitled ” Faces of the Religious Demon”.

To be continued…

If you think you need deliverance please call Pam Sheppard at (518)477-5759. The phone lines are open now. Pam Sheppard has over 25 years pastorial experience, and over 37 years experience as a deliverance counselor. This fact alone should convince you to make the call. Pam is the pioneer creator of a deliverance, mentoring, teaching program called SEW, or the ” Spiritual Empowerment Workshop”. In fact, all that I’ve shared in the above article, came out of my SEW teachings. Pam Sheppard is highly skilled at pointing folks to scripture ,and shining a floodlight on points we always miss. More than this she is THE teacher for such a time as this.

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.
