I know you have heard a lot of talk on religious spirits.  If you are new to church (as we know it), or if  you’ve been in church for over 40 years, this term may baffle you because you have been taught that – as the song goes ‘Religion SO sweet…’

We all have been lulled into a semi- or fully-delusional state where we are drugged into believing something we know deep down inside ‘just isn’t right.’  We just went to church and went along with the programs to get along.  We didn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak, out of fear that we would be labeled ‘rebellious,’ ‘unfaithful,’ ‘unteachable,’ or a host of other names leadership likes to place on thinking people who were blessed with common sense AND wisdom to know game when they see it.

Yet even the most discerning, the most wise, the most…

Trying the Spirits in Times of Peril: What the Bible Says

blog_9By Pam Sheppard

Towards the end of the Apostle Paul’s life, he warns Timothy of the perils that would come upon believers in the last days. The peril concerns every single child of God.  NONE OF US ARE EXEMPT.  His ominous letter reads something like this.

The peril concerns every child of God, and no spiritual believer should be so foolish to assume that  he or she  is exempt from peril. Paul’s  prophecy of the Holy Spirit declares, that (1) “some shall fall away from the faith; (2) the reason for the fall will be a giving heed to seducing  spirits. The essence of the  deception is that the operation is looked upon as sincere and pure. (3) The nature of the deception will be in doctrines of demons (4) The way of deception will be that the “doctrines” are delivered with “hypocrisy.” Those who do so will be admired, revered, and believed to be teaching…

HOW TO TRY THE SPIRITS

blog_11 By Pam Sheppard of RESCUE Ministries

It is not easy to teach another how to try the spirits to see if they be of God. Not easy by a long shot. Practically everything I know was acquired by personal experience. Now some may think that personal experience is not the best way to learn spiritual matters  and so  I am expecting that the  bible thumpers will say that you try the spirits by “the word.”  You need to know that the enemy knows the word better than we do. The enemy even  knows how much YOU know about the bible. So he can line up the experience or communication with scriptures, the way YOU interpret them.

He also knows US. That is why many sincere believers are being destroyed for a lack of knowledge of how the enemy works. Beside knowing how the enemy works, we also need to have an abundance of self-knowledge and…

By Pam Sheppard of RESCUE ONLINE MINISTRIES

What I perceive among Charismatics and Pentecostals is a strange epidemic that I did not perceive to be in control in the Denominations – a kind of contagious disease – spreading itself among gullible people and rendering them incapable of commonsense, objectivity and intelligent thought. Those who have embraced this delusion seem totally unaware of the irrationalism that grips them. They are mesmerized by a counterfeit, false power. What do I say about such people? Well, I perceive that they are intoxicated- that like drunkards, they are “under the influence” of a STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a LIE …” (2 Thessalonians. 2:11)

I was once of a similar mindset. How did I come out of it? Well, I said a little, but powerful prayer.  I said “Lord., expose the darkness that is around me.”  That prayer…

Why Catholics And Other Cults Cannot Try the Spirits

  By Pam Sheppard of RESCUE ONLINE MINISTRIES

Those who are spiritually blind are not able  to  discern  real  fruit  for  God,  for  fruit  can  only  be confirmed by a close association over a long period of time, for fruit must stand both the test of trial and the  test  of time.  Therefore, Jesus revealed in several of His messages that   you   cannot   produce   good   fruit   within   a   corrupt system.(Matt  7:17,  Matt  12:33)  Catholicism is not only the mother of the entire Institutional Church but she is also the first and the largest cult.  In  His  parable  concerning the  mustard  seed  that  grew  into  a  huge  tree,  where the birds  of  the  air  that  came  and  lodged  in  its  branches,  the birds  are  symbolic  of  demons.(Matt  13:31-33) The trunk of the tree isCatholicism. 

    So  since Jesus  knew  that  the  church  would  form  but  that  she would progressively  be  corrupted …

How To Witness To Religious Churchgoers: Who Are the Birds?

This article addresses how to converse with a religious cynic by using the words of the Lord as written in the bible.

pamsheppardpublishing

One of the reasons that makes  witnessing to churchgoers both difficult and unpleasant  is because  they have not yet heard from the Lord in a revelatory way.  Most of the religious  believe that if your argument is not bible-based, then it is not worth listening to.  So, a way to get through to them is using the scriptures in red.  In other words, “What did the Lord Jesus say?”  Use the Lord’s own words to reveal the truth to them.

The Lord  Jesus presented a group of kingdom of heaven parables, most of which He did not explain, but he left some clues. One of the clues as depicted in Matthew 13, is the birds. Therefore, when you’re keeping things very general, your focus is to  rely on what the Lord said, what the Lord shared. Consequently,  ask your religious churchgoer,” what do you think that parable means?”  Listen to what they say. You…

Narcissistic Personality Disorder As A Lust of the Flesh by Pastor Pam

Christian Coaching Online

Witchcraft is the practice of cursing and controlling people and situations with a counterfeit spiritual authority and power, using white and black magic. However, witchcraft is also listed among other traits and conditions as a “lust of the flesh” or a personality type. We all have experienced these kinds of people. It is one thing to be a pain in the ass know-it-all. However, when a person tries to manipulate, dominate and control the lives of other, that is when witchcraft as a lust of the flesh is quite obvious. A personality trait cannot be cast out. When the person is active and prominent in your life–perhaps a parent, a spouse, a sibling, relative or a friend,— then you will have to develop diversified strategies to protect yourself. Once I continue too discuss such strategies, this subject could turn into a book that I might consider writing. For now, let…
