Do you know how to fight when you are overtaken by demonic attacks? When heavy oppression comes upon your spirit …
There are those who are feverishly trying to save the institutional house called “church,” through evangelistic programs and revivals, church reformation attempts, mass media marketing campaigns, and ecumenical collaborations and compromises.
These are those who believe that emphasis should be placed on saving the institution of the organized church. However, I believe the Lord’s declaration of the prevailing power of the church was not referring to her as an institution, but as a spiritual body of believers who, by not denying His name and keeping the faith, would remain His. The question is not whether or not the burning house SHOULD be saved.
No, the question goes a lot deeper. The question is “CAN the burning house be saved?” Quite frankly, sin and deception have permeated the house so deeply, that only a profound, deep move of repentance and contrition can save the organized church. As Jesus declared to the 7 churches in the book of Revelation, “Remember therefore, from whence thou art fallen, and REPENT, and do the first works, or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick from its place, except thou REPENT.” (Revelation 2:5) Since He clearly states that the candlestick is a metaphor for the church, it is apparent that Jesus Himself will bring down the organized church system, the entire thing known today as “church.” However, the most important question to ask today is “has the opportunity for the church to repent expired?”
Well, I believe it has. For three reasons.
First of all, too many preachers, even the sincere ones, have made ministry a career rather than a calling. They can’t repent because their pocketbooks are tied to church donations. Unlike TD Jakes, Juanita Bynum, Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen, they did not make themselves independently wealthy from the donations of churchfolk who gave them their start in the first place, a foundation they usurped and became best selling authors. The livelihood of most full time pastors is dependent upon continuing to do whatever they can to pay their bills and provide food on their tables and care for their families with something left for retirement. Most pastors can’t come out of the church simply because they would experience financial ruin in a failing economy.
Secondly, repentance would necessitate a fundamental change in how the gospel is preached. Preachers are proud folk. They would rather confess to some kind of sin of the flesh before admitting that preaching a decisional, come to the altar and accept Jesus, repeat a sinner’s prayer gospel has caused people to invite the fake Jesus into their hearts.
Thirdly, I suspect pulpits have already been taken over by religious demons and devils. The grip of these unseen forces has occurred because God Himself has sent forth a spirit of strong delusion, causing churchfolk to believe a lie. Preachers, even good, sincere, righteous men and women are already under the power of seducing spirits whose doctrines they continue to preach.
So it is time to come out. If I am wrong, you can go back. I suggest that you simply ask the Lord in prayer, “Say Lord, is this woman, Pam Sheppard correct? Are the days of the organized church “done?” Is it a dangerous place? Should I leave?
I can tell you that if you ask Him sincerely and you are willing to obey His answer to you, then I can tell you right now that He is going to show you Himself, that you need to come out for your own safety. I explain why in detail in “Come Out of Her, God;s People.” To read further, is up to you.

MY FALSE CONVERSION
Looking back, it is no surprise that I had a false conversion. The cross of Christ, I never heard of it. No, not in church. I never heard a sermon on the message of the cross, until my first Easter sunday in a Word of Faith church. I found out that the message I did hear, was a recycled message that anybody could find online. The message was staged, and the pastor jumped down from the pulpit with a hop and stylish skip. He had, what Pam Sheppard calls a gimmick. The hop, the stylish skip, and the jumping from the pulpit, with a flourish might as well have been a stage show. The cross of Christ message the pastor gave never touched me. I sat there admiring his alligator shoes, and fancy pin stripe suit. Why? Because I was not saved then.
I had pledged and made an unholy alliance with Satan. My story continues. As I shared my son’s father Brett was ill and I kept seeing the cross of Christ, and Jesus on the cross before me in vision. I had been praying about my own bitterness and reluctance to visit him. I called someone who reminded me of what Jesus had said on that cross. Jesus said, ” forgive them father, they know not what they do”. The word of Christ prompted me to visit Brett Sr. It was the day he had slipped into a coma. I went to his bedside. Kissed his hand and sung his favorite church songs. Kissed him on the forehead and told him I forgave him, and forgave myself. He passed away that night.
Leave the church: A Historical Perspective of “the Great Falling Away.”
Once I heard in a supernatural way that the organized church had already been judged, I decided to try the spirits to see if they be of “God by studying church history. History was not one of my favorite subjects, but my hypothesis was that if the church had already been judged, history would reveal the truth.
I began with the premise that we are in the generation of the 7th church age. In the first 3 chapters of the book of Revelation, the Lord spoke to each church age. I was able to pinpoint and find in the history books each church age: Ephesus as the first age of those who lived in the generation of the Lord’s crucifixion, resurrection and after the ascension. The persecuted church at Smryna lined up and overlapped the first age, under cruel Roman domination, with the saints being crucified upside down, beheaded, and stoned to death.
With the rise of the Roman Emperor, Constantine, the organized church was established with the compromising church at Pergamos, which eventually became the Catholic Church. History revealed that the churches at Thyatira and Sardis are tao phases of Catholic Domination that spans several centuries until Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation of the 1500′s. Protestantism was the Lord’s favored church, from 1500 to 1900 when it too became as corrupted as the Catholic Church.
The age of Laodicea is the LAST church age, and we are living in it. It consists of an idolatrous, charismatic witchcraft Catholic AND Protestant church. While the Catholics have perverted the gospel of Jesus Christ with the deification of Mary and the worship of various saints, Protestantism is equally perverse. By studying church history, it became clear to me that the 7th and last age of Laodicea is a fulfillment of the Apostle’s Paul’s predictions that in the last days, there would be a great “falling away.” Paul warned the Galatians that all who add to or detract from the gospel of Jesus Christ would be cursed. He also warned that some would depart from the faith because they listened to seducing spirits teach doctrines of devils. I didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to discern that there are far too many doctrines of devils for me to even try to count today.
However, the two most powerful ones—more powerful than the prosperity gospel–is the easy believism or the “I accept Jesus into my heart” gospel and the speaking in other tongues.
The “I accept Jesus” practice was first started by Charles Finney. Born in 1792, Finney is a hero of Billy Graham and many other well-known evangelists of today. In no uncertain terms, Finney preached that man can save himself by making a conscious decision to simply “cooperate with God.” Therefore, Finney is the founding father of practically ALL of Protestantism, both traditional and emergent churches, denominational and charismatic churches who all teach an “I accept Jesus” gospel.
Add to the “I accept Jesus” crowd, those who abide by the Pentecostal teaching that the evidence of salvation is that you speak in tongues, and you have the other half of “the great falling away.” These two false doctrines combined, have caused countless seekers to “fall away.” To fall away is not necessarily to physically depart. For most of those who have already joined the ranks of the great falling away attend some church every Sunday morning.
Regarding tongues, it is a doorway for demons to enter human flesh. Since the tongue talker allows his or her mind to enter into passivity while uttering, speaking in tongues causes Christians to unknowingly enter into an altered state of consciousness. Under such circumstances, spirit entities are provided an opportunity to torment, oppress and possess.
Satan has had an agenda to infiltrate and control the organized visible church since the days that the Emperor Constantine organized it, in 313 AD. He has been working for quite a few centuries. His mission was accomplished in the 20th century.
For these reasons, I warn: Leave the Church. God is not there.
In my book, Come Out of Her, God’s People, I not only tell my story but I use my personal testimony as a symbolic microcosm of why I was led out in order to reveal why the Lord will lead ALL of His people out of Her, if they only will heed His call and leave.

SHAKE THE DUST AND DON’T LOOK BACK
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 stumbling-block 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 ALL of it. I had heard from God! Wow!
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.
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.
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!”
If your righthand offend you, cut it off.
If you need to be social, join the Y! You will be much safer. Much
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
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.
