The Great Falling Away Has Already Happened!

PROTESTANT ERRORS

(An Excerpt from the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us)

 PROTESTANTISM          

Protestants have contended that only the Catholic Church is a part of the Harlot because of the deification of Mary, the priesthood and the worship of saints. They believe that these practices hinder the salvation of Catholics.  Yet, what of Protestantism?    Are souls being saved among the denominations and the non-denominations of the Protestant faith today?  I am finding that even the best churches are hazardous, primarily because subtle deception is actually held in place by the sincerity and the commitment of its leadership. To be sincerely wrong can be almost as deadly as being obviously deceived or purposefully deceptive.

From my own vantage point from a deliverance perspective,I have been put in contact with several    demonized Catholics AND Protestants around the country and even the world. As such, there is one major sign that suggests that the church age may be coming to a close.  I am willing to bet that some of you are guessing that the most outstanding sign of the demise of the Protestant church is either dying churches, sinning preachers, the prosperity gospel or even false prophets. These are certainly signs that “Satan has a seat”. But   the most outstanding sign  that Satan may be standing behind the pulpits is one of his cosmic beings,  Jesus Sananda Immanuel.

Consider this. The main reason why the church was commissioned in the first place was to preach a gospel that the Holy Spirit could use to draw the elect to the cross of  Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Yet for 200 years or more, the gospel has been tainted with an insidious error that no one seems to be able to correct and most ministers are totally unaware of it. In a nutshell, the main error is that the people are being taught worldwide   that “God will save them once they make   a decision to choose Jesus Christ of Nazareth.—ie.that the ability to be saved lies in man’s hands.” e-book www.lulu.com/content/12044954 soft cover www.lulu.com/content/8761420

Such a teaching borders on blasphemy because if man is saved by “accepting Jesus,” then the decision is a work of man and not a gift from Godaccording to grace, “lest any man should boast  and declare “I am saved because I ACCEPTED JESUS! Whether denominational or non-denominational, pentecostal or Charismatic, practically the entire Protestant church upholds the “free will” decision approach to salvation.

Do you yourself believe that you can or could be saved any time that YOU wanted to? Do you believe that you are NOW saved simply because you responded to an altar call and/ or you repeated a sinner’s prayer where you “asked Jesus to come into your heart?” If you can answer in the affirmative, then you have been deceived and therein, defiled! You are in jeopardy on judgment day when the Lord looks at you and declares,”I NEVER KNEW YOU!!”

             Alarmingly,what is being preached in practically ALL of the Protestant churches is that through a personal decision–the volition and choice of human will—the lost  can ACCEPT Christ to be saved. This is a tenet that has so strongly grieved the Holy Ghost, that it is reasonable to wonder if He has left Protestantism entirely. Started by a preacher called Charles Finney about 200 years ago, this foundational error has pervasively spread like yeast throughout every corner of the Protestant church. Even the most renowned evangelist of our time, Billy Graham has also preached the ” make a decision”doctrine of salvation to millions upon millions.

Moreover, the church practices of the invitation to Christian discipleship through an altar call and the repeating of “the sinner’s prayer” are the main   anchors that hold the foundation of the “free will method” in place in its attempt to convince the lost that they must be saved by “choosing Christ” before it is too late. Some will even preach the doctrine of hell as a scare tactic to browbeat a “decision for Christ.” The essential root of the problem is that when a person sits in church, in a huge stadium, watches a TV evangelist, or even “is led to Christ” by another professing Christian, the lost are being taught that they can ACCEPTJesus into their own hearts and salvation is automatically theirs for the asking.

Interestingly enough, no where in the word of God is it written that “we accept Christ into our hearts.” Paul wrote to the Romans that we”believe in our hearts that Christ was raised from the dead.” However, Paul did not write that we must “accept Jesus into our hearts.”When we are born again, Jesus does not “enter our hearts.” How can He enter our hearts when He is at the right hand of the Father??? This is why the Lord told His disciples that it was better for them that He went away so that the Holy Ghost would come. The Holy Ghost is that part of the godhead who enters our spirits, causing us to become “temples of God.” The heart and the spirit are two distinctively different entities in man. Similarly, like the words “rapture” and “purgatory”,the phrase “accept Jesus”is yet another religious euphemism, not backed up by scripture.

Furthermore, the message of “I accepted Christ” is so preposterous that it is an offense to the triune Godhead. We DO NOT ACCEPT CHRIST. NO ONE CAN BE SAVED UNLESS GOD HIMSELF HAS ALREADY MADE THE CHOICE!!!! The Father and the Son have already done the choosing or the electing before the beginning of recorded time. When the sinner actually hears the call, he simply responds. Even when a sinner cries out for Jesus, it may appear to be an act of his own free will, yet the Lord said that no man can come to Him unless the Father which sent Him draws them. (John 6:44)

Subsequently, even when a sinner begs the Lord for mercy to save him, he does so because he has been drawn to the cross by the Holy Ghost. Therefore, even our repentance is not human but godly. Godly sorrow is a repentance for sin that has been divinely given to the sinner to cause him to repent, to sorrow over the Lord’s sacrifice.At the cross, a sinner’s spirit is washed, cleansed and forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

It is important to state here that nothing stops God, not even the church.When the Lord is ready for the elect, He calls them. If they are sitting on a church pew, He can still reach them, regardless of what they have been listening to. The problem is that many of the elect who are in church believe that they are already saved but they are not. The Father plans to save them. Nevertheless, for the Holy Ghost to draw them to a genuine salvation experience, the strong man must be bound with the light of truth. In this instance, the “strong man” is the religious demon, aka,the Fake Jesus. Jesus Sananda Immanuel.

The Abomination and the Falling Away In Our Times

Charles Finney and the Fake Jesus

From the days when Lucifer fell from heaven because of his rebellion against God, what compels this number one fallen angel is that he desires to be worshipped like God.  As such, he will go to ANY lengths to obtain it, even deceive people who think they are worshipping the Son of God when in actuality, they are worshipping one of Satan’s cohorts, the fake Jesus.  The eastern religions are assigned a fallen being who calls himself Maitreya, and deceived Christians and new agers are in league with the fallen angel who called Jesus Sananda Immanuel.  Together, they are an unholy trinity of Satan, the Anti-Christ and the false prophet of the book of Revelation.

Sananda’s plot took shape  under the ministry of a preacher called Charles Finney.

Charles Finney

Finney was quite a wicked looking man, as you can see the devil all up in his face. The man lived a long time when you consider that in his lifetime, the average live span was  from the late forties to about 65.  Finney lived to be 83, from 1792-1875. A fiery New York preacher, Finney’s impact on church traditions and practices has been  so profound, that his influence is still spreading globally almost two centuries later.  Finney’s notoriety is that he is the one who brought the entire church the “make a decision for Christ” through repeating the sinners prayer and the altar call.  A practicing freemason for 8 years, Finney eventually disavowed if.  Yet what I have learned about freemasonry is that it is witchcraft. And you just  don’t walk away from witchcraft without a struggle.

Anyway, in a nutshell,  Finney believed that human beings were capable of choosing whether they would be corrupt by nature or redeemed, referring to original sin as an “anti-scriptural and nonsensical dogma”  In clear terms, Finney denied the notion that human beings possess a sinful nature. Therefore, if Adam leads us into sin,  he does so not by our inheriting his guilt and corruption, but by our  following his poor example, this leads logically to the view of Christ as not having died for sins but for some lofty, moralistic reason.

Well, this was the man who started the altar call, invitation to Christian discipleship, “I accept Jesus,” practice that has led to the greatest falling away—the one that Paul himself predicted would transpire.  Consequently, due to Charles Finney, souls have probably not been saved within the organized church system for at least 150 years!!!! This doctrine has  primarily affected the Protestants much  more than the Catholics. Another fallen angel, Mother Mary had a different strategy for THEM. The “make a decision, I accept Jesus gospel has so permeated all Protestant Church tradition, a problem that Baptist preacher Paul Washer is diligently trying to correct, to no avail.  Washer is correct on this score but there  are errors in his teaching as well, which is yet “another story.”  Another practice that Finney started was to use the preacher’s invitation at the end of a sermon to evoke an emotional response, in other words to create a charged up atmosphere to manipulate a false conversion.

Anyway, the organized church is incapable of fixing a problem that has been built so deep into its foundation for almost two centuries. What makes it “incorrectible” ,  is that the church is not even aware of this essential problem, so Sananda has had his seat in it for quite some time.  His next step was to inspire artists to paint images of a white, blondish hair, blue eyed image of Jesus to put on the walls of the churches, thereby cementing his claim to them.  For when a demon or fallen angel  successfully plants  an object of themselves into any place, they establish squatters rights for the practice of their idolatry.

If you were one who repeated a sinner’s prayer, chances are, you are not saved.  Help is available.  Call 518-477-5759

The Top Five New Years Resolutions for 2012: Examine EVERYTHING! This still stands on 1/1/2019!!!!!

  I have been saved, born again since Monday— March 29, 1977 at about 4pm. Yet, once I wrote the book “the Fake Jesus” about 5 years ago, I found myself cleaning out my own temple from the deceptive influence of Sananda, Ashtar and perhaps other so-called ascended masters. You see, this book   connects the dots between the church system, the new age movement and the ascended masters, aka the fallen angels.  I discovered in retrospect that once the demons lost me to the One True God, they immediately set out to derail His plan for my life. Through dreams and other supernatural experiences, I was deceived on many levels for almost  three decades..For 3 years BEFORE I was saved, I was steeped in the occult. I  also had healing powers and I was able to see into the future through astrology and other means. Once saved, my occult powers carried over into Christianity without my knowledge primarily because I was ignorant of Satan’s devices.  I’ve learned a lot about the enemy  in 38 years!

 When you examine EVERYTHING, you are actually resisting  the devil and he shall flee from you, IF YOU PRESS ON!.

Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness.. When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. . My testimony is too long for one blog. However for the sake of the subject matter at hand, I can testify that I was  one who ignorantly made an informal pact with the fake Jesus by not properly severing ALL of my ties to my pre-conversion practices of occultism and mediumship.

Through presumption, I assumed that once saved, ALL of my occultic practices of the past were behind me, since I had burned all of my astrology and occultic books in 1983. My personal testimony is a classic example of how the fake Jesus can fool a true Christian by deception, capitalizing on its target’s ignorance of certain spiritual matters. Hosea’s word continues to ring true.(Hosea 4:6) God’s elect are overwhelmingly deceived and if we are not careful, ultimately destroyed by a lack of knowledge of how “all spiritual manifestations are NOT from God!”Another reason why I share various aspects of my own personal testimony is to give you hope and confidence that the principalities and the powers of heaven shall not win. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony and I am an overcomer.

Here is just one of several examples. I received tongues at a meeting held in Albany New York through the ministry of the late Kenneth Hagin. Hagin is really the founder of the word of faith movement as it is operating today. I have no idea whether or not Hagin was a false prophet or a deceived one. I simply look around as I view Charismania, and I know Hagin by his fruits. Anyway, I never truly embraced the way that I received tongues because it had no resemblance to the way the early church received this gift as revealed in the book of Acts. Yet, I grew to speak prolifically, at my own will, what charismatics call in “a prayer language.”

The reason why I have not been convinced about tongues is that for 25 years, I was not  able to find a bona-fide interpreter, nor was I able to interpret myself. So I ask, “Where are the interpreters?” The Holy Ghost does not expect me to throw away my commonsense. If I have prayed off and on for decades to receive the gift of interpretation of tongues as Paul suggests that we all do, 25 years  passed and I still found  no one, including myself to interpret my “prayer language”, good sense  suggested to me that the tongue that I received in 1983 is not from God. So if it is not from God, then who did it come from?

Well, its obvious. It didn’t come from me. I suspect that it came from one of the Ascended Masters, perhaps Sananda or Ashtar. What would be the reason for the demons to desire to imitate tongues? Well, if we don’t know what we are saying when we speak in an “unknown” tongue, we could very possibly be used by demonic beings to “decree and declare” that their will, purposes and agenda be done on earth, rather than that of the will of the Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the One, True and Only Creator–the one that Lucifer rebelled against in the first place.

 I have been involved in almost all of what is passing itself off today as emanating from the Holy Ghost. Early on, I was groaning and weeping in very strange ways beginning in 1979.. Kenneth Copeland provided me with the explanation that I was looking for, confirming to me that my strange experience was a manifestation of intercessory prayer. Kenneth taught that the strange weeping and groaning that I did was a sacrificial work for the lost and the bound, emanating in travail from the Holy Ghost. TD Jakes and his “wailing women” seminars concur with Copeland. So Copeland, Jakes and others had  me convinced that God was using my travail to break yokes and bondages, ie. setting captives free. Since I believed that the Holy Ghost was using me to intercede, it is only natural that I held on to this strange work.

My mind was certainly unfruitful when I travailed and so often I tried to guess the reason behind it. I convinced myself that much of my groaning and weeping was for sinning preachers to repent. If so, it did not work. They just kept on sinning. I also laughed wildly in the spirit before I even heard of Hagin and Brown’s practice of what is called “holy laughter.”. My laughter was different, as I believed that the Holy Ghost was using me to laugh at the devil. When I laughed, I cried also. I found several scriptures to support my style of holy laughter and so I never tried this phenomena to see if it be of God. I just assumed that it was. The only supernatural experiences that I have not personally experienced is holy dance and shouting, African-American style. Perhaps that is because I have no cultural background in the South and I was not raised in an African-American Church or any church. In other words, holy dancing was not a part of my ancestral upbringing.

Furthermore, even though demons could no longer “step into me and speak,” some of my mediumistic traits DID survive my conversion. Nevertheless, when a counterfeit was exposed by the Holy Ghost in recent years, I have been duty bound to remove it by repenting and disavowing it. For example, I could heal BEFORE I was converted. I sucked pain out of people with my hands, particularly my left hand, BEFORE I was converted—proof that my healing gift was mediumistic and not charismatic, NOT OF THE HOLY GHOST.

Once I realized that my healing gift was tainted, I have made every effort not to touch anyone unless I am sure that I am being led by God to do so. I know today that more was required. I have come to the conclusion that my healing gift was not from God and therefore I  vehemently repented, rebuked, resisted and renounced it. Perhaps the Lord will give me the true gift of healing from the Holy Ghost. Perhaps not. I just kept  on cleaning house as I press toward the mark of my high calling and truth flooded down upon me like rivers of living waters.. I resisted the devil and he fled from me.

Here is another example of my occultic powers influencing my Christian service. Since  I could see into the future through astrology and through dreams BEFORE I was converted,  I had never learned the absolute necessity of trying the spirits to see if they be of God. As I look back over my Christian journey, some of my most significant dreams of future events that actually transpired were sent by the Fake Jesus. I see now with a clarity that I have never had before. The fake Jesus uses counterfeits of the Holy Ghost as “a hook.” Whenever I receive information  of a futuristic nature in a dream about people I know, I rebuked the spirit of divination. Now I rarely hear from this demon.

In the last seven years, when the Lord wants me to know the future, I just “KNOW IT.” Very quietly. Don’t have to see a thing. I walk in faith these days and I don’t have a need of knowing the future as I once did. I soberly remember the Lord’s warning: A PERVERSE NATION SEEKS AFTER A SIGN! So, yes, I can admit without reservation that I myself have been deceived by the fake Jesus, and it has taken all of 30 years to get clean. There is evidence that I am completely clean but seriously speaking, I can’t yet say that I am absolutely certain. I wait on the Lord for Him to expose what may yet need to be uncovered.

How do I feel as a dedicated believer in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Only and True Begotten Son of God who has been deceived by the Fake Jesus for decades? Do I feel like a failure,–fooled frustrated, faithless ? Bamboozled, run a muck? To that, I must say, emphatically NOOOOOOOO! I am joyous, relieved that real truth has truly revived  me and I am free at last!!!! .And I declare, ” BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!!!

You see, in my relentless search for truth, the Holy Ghost has granted me the wisdom to deny all mediumistic gifts once He has exposed them to me. However, He would not expose them to me until I was willing to humble myself, In 2012, I strongly recommend that all my readers humble themselves. To begin the process the first step involves questioning every significant supernatural experience that you have had since you believe you were saved, including your conversion experience. I would not recommend this step to you, if I did not take my own advice. Having been there and done that, I am pleased to report that  the quality and consistency of the wisdom that I have received in the last seven years as compared to the previous  27 years, is truly beyond comparison. And the wisdom of God just keeps on coming.

If you have been in the occult, you were in the hands of the fake Jesus. Once you became saved, the fake Jesus assigned a religious demon to you to attempt to make your Christian journey unfruitful. The deception is like a maze or an intricate spider web.  You may need help in unraveling the deception that the enemy has woven for years, even decades.  Help is available.

Your Endtime Wake-Up Call in 2011

     A part of living in the endtimes is to hear and recognize  the “wake-up”call.  God sends out different kinds of alarms.  The alarm that every human being heard in 2011 was an  environmental alarm.  None of us in any part of the world could have slept through the  earthquake alarm that sounded as  a result of the devastation in Japan.  I have my iodine pills to prove it!  We are all thinking, “how can I prepare myself for something like this happening in MY backyard?!”

So we bought  generators, stocked  upon  food, purchased Iodine drops and  water filters.

I believe that making preparations is good commonsense.  However, if we too are struck with a huge tsunami, most stockpiles will be  buried under fallen buildings or washed into the sea by  tidal waves.

   Then there are “the spiritual alarms” that come upon individuals.  As a deliverance counselor, what I have seen God do is  release demons of torment upon the deceived, in order to wake them up to the reality that something is most definitely wrong with their “religion.”  This is how it works.  You attend church every time the doors are opened.  You are tithing your gross income, giving additional offerings and donations, and so you are expecting a financial harvest—the 100 fold return blessing that prosperity preachers have assured you that you will receive for your giving.  Yet, you are in the worst financial shape that you have ever been in.  The more you give, the less you have, and that’s a fact.

But you keep waiting and you keep lying to yourself and to others every time you say “I’m blessed.”  Then your car breaks down, your house burns down and you have no insurance.  You let your insurance laps in order to give toward the church’s building fund.  Out of nowhere, you are homeless.  You cry, “why Lord, why?”  His response?

I sent you a wake-up call, a demon of poverty as your “alarm clock.”  Can’t you read the signs?  Have you completely lost ALL commonsense? The prosperity message is one of the doctrines of the devils the Apostle Paul warned you about in My word.  I have allowed you to suffer poverty as “a wake up call.” When you come out of that church, I’ll bless you again!”

There are other wake up calls.  In my book, “the New Idolatry,” I quote the late Watchman Nee:

“Should the child of God desire freedom, his folly must be removed.  In other words, he must know the truth.  He needs to appreciate the real nature of affairs.  Satanic lies bind, but God’s truth unshackles.Naturally the knowledge of truth is going to be costly, for it will shatter the vainglory one has assumed due to his past experiences.  He looks upon himself as far more advanced than others, as being spiritual and infallible.  How hard hit he will be if he confesses the possibility of his being invaded or if he is shown to have been so invaded!” (The Spiritual Man 1968)

Therefore, if you are a child of God, and you have been ‘invaded,’  what you need to know is that the enemy could not  invade you without your cooperation. And if you have unknowingly been cooperative with the enemy , then God allowed a demon to invade you  “for your good.”  Once you receive the message of the wake up call, you will be set free.

So wake up and smell the coffee. 2012 is a wake-up call year!

The Comfort Zone of Church Attendance For the Lukewarm

Are you comfortable in the pews?  Are you addicted to standing behind a pulpit? I can relate. I tell my story of how the Lord used present day Pharisees   to mess with my comfort zone  in “Come Out of Her, God’s People.” In a dream, the Lord warned me. He said “Pam, I can’t use you in this place. So sit back and let them PUT YOU OUT!” I thought to myself “How can they put me out? I have been a minister in good standing in this denomination for 25 years!!! Well in 9 months from the day of that  dream, my fellow ministers and lay leaders PUT ME OUT!

Perhaps that will be the case for you. But if you are among the elect in endtimes, you must either walk out yourself, or the Lord will allow the devil to use fake Christians to PUSH you out. But out you MUST come out to survive and escape the plagues that are coming upon those still “in the house”!!! My warning to “the lukewarm” is taken from the words of Paul to Timothy and the words of Jesus to the church at Laodicea. We are living in the last days, where some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

So what is the bottom line to Satan’s not so tender trap? How was the devil able to get into the church, and not only secure a seat in the back row, but actually make his way to the pulpit? Well, through a gradual infiltration that has taken several centuries, Satan finally has his seat in the pulpit. You see, the gateway for the religious demon is “by invitation.” Invitations can be either formal or informal. Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness..

When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. When sermons are preached by wrenching scriptures out of their context for the purpose of making three points that have nothing to do with repentance, rebirth or the resurrection, an invitation is made to the religious demon. When salvation is taken out of the sovereign calling and election of God and put into the hands of man to “make a decision for Christ” then Satan moved from the backseat into the pulpit. When unsaved people came to church altars “chanting” after speaking in tongues, they invited demons to enter them and countless of these folk are now tormented, almost fully demonized.

As would be expected, the sheep followed the preaching of a distorted gospel, looking for blessings, success, and prosperity to come in the abundant life they are taught that Jesus promised them.They have been seduced into believing that “they have a right to the good life” and all that prosperity entails. Rarely do preachers even mention that serving Jesus Christ can also bring trial, tribulation, trouble and in some cases, even death. Consequently, Satan’s seat has been securred by the gradual elimination of the cross from the gospel preached in most pulpits.

Can Satan be unseated by the organized church?. How can he be? Though short lived, the bible tells us that Satan will have his day, when he officially takes his seat in the endtime synagogue, today called “THE CHURCH!” The organized church is fastly ringing true to her final name, Mystery Babylon. Furthermore, the time for repentance is already  OVER, since  judgement of the household of faith has already occurred. The remnant within the church shall prevail along with the rest of the 144,000 righteous remnant.

Whether an actual or a literal number, the truth is this. The way to the True Jesus is narrow and straight and the very few are those who enter in and find the real Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the only begotten Son of the Father. Every one of us who is saved today believed on Jesus Christ through the gospel that the first apostles preached. In this regard, the gates of hell can never make a claim on a born again child of God because any prayer of the Lord’s was answered by the Father.

Therefore, the gates of hell have not and shall not prevail against the saved. The Lord did not pray for the organized church in John 17. He could have, but He didn’t. It was about to be formed. No, Jesus prayed for its first leaders, the 11 Apostles, with Paul being the spiritual replacement for Judas. A serious cause for the confusion over who Jesus was referring to as “the church” is that for centuries, the organized religious system has made no distinction between its own bureaucracy and the eternal body of true believers in Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

In fact, in many churches, it is assumed and presumed that those who regularly attend on Sundays, pay their tithes and offerings, and partake of the means of grace are members in good standing, and therefore they are considered “saved.” This practice began with Catholicism and eventually carried over into the Protestant churches. Nevertheless, the assumption that every one on the church rolls is saved is certainly without scriptural justification.

Some of you might turn to a verse in Ephesians where Paul writes that the Lord is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle. Charismatics, particularly those who preach “dominion theology,” contend that as long as the organized church is a toothless ole hag in a soiled wedding dress, the Lord is not coming back for her. Dominion theology like those who embrace the Joel Army movement  boast of present day apostles who are expected to reform the organized church to cause her to be a presentable bride.

These folk are seriously deceived because there is not one thing that man can do to affect God’s timetable. Some of you “foolish virgins” need to put some oil in your lamps and come to terms with the reality that the Lord is NOT coming back for the organized church in what churchfolk have called “the rapture”. He is coming back for his invisible, eternal kingdom made up of the elect AFTER the Anti-Christ has reigned. Once saved, we no longer have “spots or wrinkles or any such thing” because a bona-fide Christian has been washed in the blood of the Lamb. Once Jesus Christ returns, we all shall finish out the cleansing by the resurrection of our dead bodies or the putting on of immortality by those of us who are alive at His coming, when we who are alive shall meet in the air those who preceded us in death.

This is the gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. There is only one event that I believe determines when the Lord shall come back. I believe He will come back when every name that was written in the Lamb’s book of Life before the foundation of the earth was laid, has heard the gospel and has been led to the cross by the Holy Ghost. Jesus prayed that He would have ALL of the elect. If there is one among the elect who has not yet been born, He will wait on that person hearing the gospel and being drawn to Him by the Holy Ghost. The ministry of the 144,000 will bring in every soul among the chosen of God who is alive just before the Lord’s coming.

The Religious Spirit Rules the Organized Church

by Pam Sheppard

Holy Week at Santhome Basilica, Chennai (HDR)

Image via Wikipedia

What I am finding in my counseling practice with Christians, is that churchgoers who are reporting that they are being tormented by demons DID NOT REALLY GET SAVED WHEN THEY THOUGHT THAT THEY DID!!!!! Besides not understanding repentance in a fullness, I believe that what some professing Christians miss is that a resurrected body is the same body that died,—- the original body that has been made new or “renovated.” A glorified body is never subject to death again.

Lazarus was raised from the dead in his “same” body but his body was not glorified because he would die again. Lazarus was not raised immortal. Ola was the first client that manifested this problem. For a year, I did not realize that Ola did not understand this concept. When people say “Jesus was raised from the dead,” those who don’t understand are just repeating a memorized phrase that they have accepted. But when you go deeper, those who have been made confused by word of faith teaching will say “Oh, Jesus had a glorified body which means He had a new body.” I ask them “Well what happened to the old body?” Some will say “it was buried, it decomposed, it floated away with his spirit, “I don’t know”or just “it disappeared in some supernatural way, like the work of a magician who pulls a rabbit out of a hat!”

The root of the problem is that they have misunderstand the scripture in Corinthians which says “it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body, and there is a spiritual body.” I cor 15:44. What they don’t understand is that a natural body is physical and a spiritual body is material as well. A natural body is subject to death. A spiritual body is not. A natural body when dead will decompose or be “corruptible.” A spiritual body is raised “incorruptible.” It will never decay. That is the difference between the two.

So when I ask the key question, “was Jesus raised as a physical body or was He raised as a spirit, the response will be “He was raised as a spirit.” In spite of the fact that Jesus showed his original yet glorified body to Thomas and said to him “a spirit does not have flesh and bone as I have”, they STILL miss it. A crucial error that will determine where they abide in eternity.

I didn’t write this.. Paul did. It is in I Cor 15:17: And if Christ is not risen, your faith is vain (futile) AND YOU ARE STILL IN YOUR SINS. To still be in your sins is to “not be saved or born again.” So if you don’t understand what resurrection means, then how can you believe that “Jesus was risen?” So the logical conclusion is that anyone who does not understand resurrection but came to the Jesus of their understanding IS NOT SAVED!

As both a servant of God and a professional Christian counselor, I really thought that when people said “He is risen,” that they understood what that meant.

Thirty-four years ago when I myself was unsaved, I understood resurrection because I had no concept at all of what a spirit was. I was all flesh: a two-part being of mind and body. So since I didn’t have an understanding of what the word “spirit” meant, I was never confused into thinking that “to be raised” meant to float away as a spirit. All I knew about resurrection was what I had seen in the movies or heard at Easter. I laughed at this. I said “Christians must think that people are stupid. It is very clear to me that when you are dead you are DEAD and there is no coming back to life.”

On the day that I got born again in my living room, faith to believe that Jesus came back to life in the same body that He died in at the cross literally burst through my mind and I was in a state of shock. After I repented for being a sinner, the resurrection flashed into my mind immediately. Once I went to church and became a minister, I didn’t think that what happened to me was supposed to happen to everyone that got saved, even after I read “confess the Lord Jesus with your mouth AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT HE WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD! The Greek word for “heart” is “cardia.” Cardia means “the mind, the emotions, the thoughts and the feelings.” The spiritual heart is a part of the human soul.

Once I explain the resurrection to MOST of my clients who have been confused, none become saved prior to dealing with the issues of being set free from demons. In some cases, the religious demon is so entrenched in the person, that it must be cast out first so that the person can believe in the resurrection. This was the case of Minister Kennedy back in 2001. Practically EVERYTHING that she did that was under the power of a religious demon—a familiar spirit, a spirit of divination: preach, praise the Lord, prophecy, speak in tongues, discern spirits and see into the spirit world, was entirely counterfeited by the religious demon that resides in her. God waited 5 years to save her. Out of 200 cases, Ola is the only one I know for sure is born again.

When you trace their alleged conversion to Christ back to the original source by skillful asking questions during the plowing stage of counseling, the source of the problem is almost always uncovered. For example, when some of my clients came to Christ, they came for the wrong reasons under strange/demonic circumstances. Religious demons “specialize.” There are some who want to do religious things, just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees of Jesus day.Remember the words of the Lord to them?” He said “You will tithe even something as small as a mint. Yet you are like whitewashed tombs, clean on the outside but filled with dead men’s bones. Your are of your Father, the devil. Vipers. A viper is a snake, the snake representing counterfeit religion.

Someone posed the following question to me in an email : if a person is operating off of only what they know and have been taught, won’t the Lord make an exception? Wouldn’t that be another “specific” example? In other words, if someone sincerely repents, loves the Lord, and accepts Him as their Savior, and they die before they have been TAUGHT and DISCIPLED, wouldn’t the Lord take that into consideration? Afterall, HE KNOWS THE HEARTS OF MEN, and we don’t, RIGHT?”

This is the exact situation that each and every one of my clients have found themselves in. The Lord has made an exception in each of their cases. He has seen to it that they DO NOT DIE before they have been un-deceived through counseling. Teaching and discipling is a part of the counseling process. The Lord has taken each client’s plight into consideration, by first opening my eyes and instructing me on how to recognize the deception, and how to counsel, teach and disciple him or her. Some have fallen under the category of II Cor 4:3,4: For if our gospel be hid or veiled, it is hid to those who are lost, whose minds the god of this world has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, which  is the image of God, should shine on them. So I will have to cast out the religious demon first, BEFORE the client can be saved.

If I look at this problem from carnal eyes, then I could get discouraged. I can only handle 30 clients at a time and it takes from 3 months to a year per client. So I continue to train other ministers “to do what I do.”  I just don’t question God about what He is doing for these kinds of captives. I simply DO MY PART which seems so small that it appears non-existent when you consider how many professing Christians may have already been deceived. God does His part. For example, every one of my clients have had a dream that led them to me or they were surfing the web and found me.

People seeking Christ through the ministry of those who are preaching “another gospel” and presenting “another Jesus” in churches of all kinds and with folk who stay home and watch TBN are becoming mentally, spiritually and even physically bound. People are picking up religious demons at pentecostal altars, where they have been “tarrying” or “chanting” to receive the Holy Ghost and to speak with other tongues. Some clients ended up with absolutely no control over their bodies. Those I couldn’t help refused to even consider that they were not saved. Once the Pentecostals got a grip on them and they “manifested” the speaking in a tongues, they became super spiritual. Inch by inch, the demons took over. The demons spoke through several clients, using their bodies to do various things. .You can read more on this in my book “Faces of the Religious Demon.”

In a strange case of a client I call “Carol.” Carol is unique because she is obedient, compliant, coherent and willing to do anything to be delivered, which was not the case with others. I see no real fault in her as I have seen in some of the others. She was simply watching TV, responded to a sinner’s prayer through a Mormon sponsored program, then began to feed off of the teachings of mega TV preachers and was guided to a mega church by a vision that was demonically inspired.

As it stands, I work with those that I can, and I plant a seed into those that I cannot help, and pray that the Lord will direct them to true, informed Christians who will nurture and water that seed. For those who refuse to hear, I let them fire me and I shake the dust from my feet and move on to the next captive.

What Is a Born Again Christian? Salvation 101

WHAT IS A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN? An Excerpt from RECOVERY IN CHRIST

There is much confusion in the body of Christ about this question primarily because most believers do not distinguish between the soul and the spirit. They are certainly NOT the same, nor are they interchangeable. Hebrews 4:12 points out the distinction, clearly suggesting that if we are to walk in the spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh—if we are to walk by faith and not by sight—if we are to crucify the flesh–then the soul and the flesh must be divided by the two-edged sword of the word of God.

In order to answer this question, we also need to have a sense of the differences and similarities between our  soul and our spirits. There are quite a few similarities. Though the body is mortal, the spirit and the soul are both eternal. As the body is finite and material, both the soul and the spirit are invisible and without natural substance. As the body has five senses, the spirit and the soul have senses also.

The spirit is heaven bound. If it were not for the soul, the spirit would “fly away.” The body is earth-bound. The two meet and correspond with each other through the activity of the soul. So a basic definition of the soul is that the soul is the mediator between the spirit and the body—an interpreter. A control center, if you will, with the brain of the body as its command center.

A person who is alive yet brain-dead, is one whose spirit is still in his body but his soul has left. A body without a soul is dead so they turn off the plug and the spirit flies away. However, when the spirit leaves and the soul remains in the body, as long as the spirit does not travel too far into “outer space,” the soul keeps the body intact and alive. Out of body experiences are called astral travel by occultists. However, every day, the spirit often takes “little trips” through day dreaming and deeper forms of altered states of consciousness.

When the body is asleep, the soul is busy keeping things in order.

For example, when you are sleeping and your body gets the urge to urinate, the spirit will create a toilet in a very imaginary way. Because I take a water pill at night, this happens to me frequently. The soul tries to “help out” and I see the toilet in the spirit, but something always goes wrong. In a dream, I see myself making the effort, but the sensation in my body continues to increase and my soul continues to try to work things out in my mind, but a mental picture of urinating does not help the situation. So my soul simply wakes up my body and says, “hey Pam, you’d better get your body up before we have an accident in this bed.”

This little example shows how when you are sleeping, the body is at rest and therefore is at its weakest. The spirit and the soul often fight for control, at times manifested as a strange dream. Demons also try to send their messages to the soul and God will also communicate in dreams, but only to your spirit. While the spirit operates in the unconscious realm of intuition, the body in the conscious realm of the natural world, the soul functions in both realms. For this reason, the soul and the spirit of a born again, saved person must be divided, for God will only speak to your spirit.

Here is the thing. When the Holy Ghost draws us to Jesus, our spirits immediately become “born again.” That which is flesh is flesh. Flesh is a mixture of soul with the body. Flesh is also a mixture of soul with the spirit. So when God “saves us,” He

"I'm a new creature because I have a new spirit. Old things are passed away and all things have become NEW!!!

gives us a NEW SPIRIT. All of the darkness that was in our spirits BEFORE the Holy Ghost translates us out of darkness into God’s marvelous light, our spirits were depraved and contaminated with evil. That is why when we slept, we had so many nightmares. The evil that we saw was merely a reflection of our own dark spirits, contending with demons.

When our spirits are born again, all things pass away, all things become NEW. We become a “new creation.” God’s light comes into our spirits and our spirits become the temple of God. Our spirits are ALWAYS eternal, both before salvation and after it. Before the new birth, our spirits are in captivity to Satan. As soon as we say “yes” to the invitation of Jesus, our spirits are immediately changed, justified, sanctified, seated in heavenly places. We are “translated” or brought out of Satan’s dark jail into the marvelous light of Jesus Christ. To be sanctified is to be set apart for God’s use—a vessel of God. To be justified is to be treated as though we never sinned. We are washed and cleansed. We are seated in heavenly places immediately, with our prayers having immediate access to the throne of God.

I know that rebirth is immediate because the Lord allowed me to actually SEE the process at the moment of the rebirth of my  own spirit. I was laying on my back on my couch in a birthing position, legs wide open as in labor. Contractions began to occur but they were not in my womb. They were in the chest/belly area, the seat of my spirit. As I lay there, I saw a light, like the hand of God, go into that area, as if it was gently massaging me there. I had about 4 deep “birth pains” and then “voila!”

"I'm a new creature because I have a new spirit!' Cool Christian Cat! lol

Hard to explain. All I know is that the old gospel song which asks “how did you feel when you come out the wilderness? Did your hands look new and your feet too?” Yes, Lord! lol. I actually felt like I had just been born for the FIRST time. It was like I had no existence before that day on 3/29/1977 at 4pm on a Monday! I was crying and laughing at the same time! What joy unspeakable. I have felt the joy of the Lord many times, but never like the day that my spirit was made new and I was born again.

However, the soul said, “Hey, Pam. You are 33 years old. Life goes on. Let’s get real, here, okay?”

Yep. My un-renewed soul showed up the next day, March 30. It was my favorite aunt’s birthday. I’d never missed sending her a card or buying her a gift. So I wanted to call her. The Holy Spirit said “No, Pam. Today is God’s day.” I struggled real hard that day. The Lord told me to sit and think on nothing but Him for the entire day. Try as I might, it was real rough. I wanted to go see about my aunt. As I sat there, my mind thought of all the things I could be doing. I remember thinking, “the toilet needs to be cleaned.” I wanted to get up from being before the Lord to clean my toilet. It was the strangest thing because my flesh is not fond of house cleaning. By sundown, I was a sobbing mess!!!

That is how the Lord showed me that even though my spirit was born again, the salvation of my soul had to be “worked out.” How? By the renewing of my mind.

I’m just going by memory here but this is how the salvation of our souls is worked out. We present our bodies—-all 3 parts–as a sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God as a reasonable service. Where our soul and our bodies are concerned, we are not to be conformed to this world. Instead, we are to allow ourselves to be “transformed” by THE RENEWING OF OUR MINDS.

With a renewed mind, the salvation of our souls is worked out. Why? Because the soul consists of the mind, the intellect, the emotions, the feelings, ie. the individual, human personality that makes each of us different—one from the other. There are no souls that are the same. So the renewal will affect each of us differently.

Each soul is an “I AM.” However, God is the I AM THAT I AM.” So the working out of the soul’s salvation often involves wrestling not only with principalities and powers but with God Himself. The Holy Ghost, though the Comforter, He is also the taskmaster. He helps us to put to death the deeds of the flesh for we can not work out the salvation of our soul’s without the Holy Ghost. He will put us in situations in order to break the “self” aspect of our soul because the soul is “all about self.”

WHAT TO DO ABOUT FALSE CONVERSIONS Part 2

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SERMONS, DEMONS AND COMMUNAL INTOXICATION

I was a preacher for almost 3 decades. I preached an average of one sermon a week for 20 years, with 8 of those years preaching 3 sermons a week.  On one occasion in the pulpit, I felt a strange power come upon me where it seemed I was “not myself.” I was in a rather strong altered state of consciousness. I thought is was an extra powerful anointing of the Holy Ghost. IT WAS NOT!!!

When I was sent to church for the first  in 1979, I had never heard a sermon and so when I was informed in 1981 that upon entering ministry, I would be required to preach a trial sermon on October 25, 1981, I had no idea what a sermon was. In the summer of ’81, I began to preach in my sleep, in preparation for the October day of trial. I also walked around all day for about 30 days, muttering “sermons.”

I thought that I was under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. It took about 25 years for me to find out that in those early and strange days, I was under the “anointing” of the religious demon assigned to me. I thank God then when   DID enter the pulpit to preach and pastor, it was only ONE time in at least 2 thousand sermons that that same power came upon me. I have since discovered that it is a demonic power, in no way, the Holy Ghost.

Oh yes! Demons enjoy preaching. I came out of a denomination where men who were adulterers, fornicators, perverts, closet homosexuals could preach so hard, that they could affect even me, in spite of what I knew about the intimate, sometimes secret details of their lives.At least 10 times a year, 50 ministers gathered at various regional church functions and a hanful would preach at these gatherings.

When they were preaching, I  harneseds down my soul from being overpowered, but there were times when I could not. Their power was too strong.  I often wondered about it over the years. How could these corrupt men overtake my soul with one of their sermons in spite of my resistance to it? Could this be God? Would God use such sinful creatures to preach HIS WORD???!!!

It took two decades or more to find out the answer to that question. The answer is NO!!!! The Holy Ghost does not anoint such preachers but the devil DOES!!!. It is called communal intoxication by the founder of sociology, Max Weber.

Communal intoxication is defined by Weber as the supernormal ability of magicians, wizards, witches and charismatic religious leaders.With the god concept at its center, they induce an altered state of consciousness in their followers as demonstrated by the congregation’s manifestation of convulsions, trembling, and intense effusions of excitement and ecstasy. (Come Out of Her God’s People, pg 190)

Weber points out that that communal intoxication has a contagious effect where it can spread throughout  an audience or congregation of people, infecting those assembled with sensations of enhanced emotionalism and vitality. This definition explains the so called holy dance, holy rollers, holy laughter, running around the church building, perhaps even tongues and slain in the spirit phenomena.

This power was manifested in my presence for 25 years  among denominational African American preachers. Keep in mind that Weber’s studies were predominately tribal communities on other continents, including Africa and Asia. Webers findings suggest that the altered state appeal has a significant connection to today’s charismatic leaders’ ability to cause large numbers of people to believe that they have been released from bondages and that they have “heard from God.”

As a result, what has been happening in church is that demons have been using corrupt ministers to preach. I would say that that is reason enough to “COME OUT OF HER, GOD’S PEOPLE.”
