- Why Leave Church?
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.

Since preachers take scripture out of their natural context to preach a sermon, we do the same thing when we read, study and apply various texts to our particular situation, like occultist and new agers use astrology and other forms of divination. For example, some use psalm 37 in the wrong way, particularly where it comes to dealing with enemies when Jesus told us to love our enemies in the 4 gospels.
Paul wrote to the Galatians that anyone who adds to or detracts from the word of God brings a curse or in other words, “a plague” on both the culprits and the victims they teach. Paul declared it THIS way: If any man preach any other gospel, other than what i have preached, LET HIM BE CURSED.” (Gal 1:9)
Two thousand years have passed since Paul’s rather serious proclamation. I am not a historian, but I would imagine that any church or religion professing to be Christian that either subtracts from or adds to the gospel of Jesus Christ has reaped the fruit of this curse, from one generation to another. Today, there are countless people who are being oppressed and tormented by demons because they are listening to those who are preaching “another gospel.”
In this generation, there are more false doctrines that have been created by preachin and teachin folk who either added to or took away from the gospel of Jesus Christ, than most people could count. Even in things that seem insignificant. Take for example, the verse in Luke 13, when Jesus healed a woman who had been crippled—bowed down by the devil for 18 years. After the Lord cast that demon of infirmity from her by healing her, He said “Woman, thou are loosed!”
Yet TD Jakes –an intelligent, well learned preacher— took the Lord’s words, and turned it into “somethin else.” In other words, he added to it a meaning that the Lord did not mean and he created a “Christian woman’s liberation movement out of it,” even made a movie—called it “Woman Thou Art Loosed,” a movie where a woman takes a gun while in church, and shoots a man who had raped her when she was a child,— at the very moment the man was touched and moving toward the altar to be saved. Now, that is adding to and detracting from the Lord’s own words to the max, and making millions of dollars out of the words that are written in the gospels concerning the Lord’s ministry of deliverance. What did the Lord mean by those words? He meant “woman you are no longer bound by a demon because I have just set you free from your arthritic condition. What does deliverance of a physically crippled woman from demons have to do with women’s liberation and shooting rapists in church?
These are the kinds of things professing Christians are doing EVERYDAY. They are adding to and detracting from the bible and wondering why they are in the devil’s hands.

Paul taught the Galatians that witchcraft and idolatry are “works of the flesh.” A work of the flesh is simply a character flaw of the old sin nature BEFORE Christ that lingers on if the person does not submit him or herself to the cross. To submit to the cross is to allow the Holy Spirit to progressively break you in both your personality and your character traits.So what does this mean, exactly. Does it mean that demons are not involved in a “work of the flesh?” Absolutely not. Witchcraft and idolatry are demonic practices. What it DOES mean is that people who have witchcraft in them as a work of the flesh—a personality flaw— are more susceptible to demonic influence, particularly religious demons and devils.
I have witnessed too many manifestations of evil spirits in ALL of the works of the flesh, so clearly there are two definitions of witchcraft andidolatry. Where a work of the flesh is a personality type that is predisposed to demonic involvement, the actual act of witchcraft and idolatry are demonic practices. When demons are looking for “human workers” to implement their agenda, they target people who already have witchcraft and idolatry built into their persona as “a work of the flesh.”Along these lines, the witchcraft demon is attracted to a person with a soul that is predisposed to to the three (3) “P”s of position, prestige and power. Those who wish to dominate, to acquire fame and prominence, can become a safe haven for the witchcraft demon.
In such cases, the captive’s own personality will be a secure place in which demons of a similar nature will be able to hide and secretly function. This is because no one will suspect that the captive’s ambitious striving for control and domination is demonic because the captive has continued to demonstrate over time a steady pattern that propels them to seek power. Consequently, everyone just assumes that the captive is simply being true to his nature or character and therefore, doesn’t have a demon. The witchcraft demon will also hide within weaker personalities.
For example, there are those who wear a facade of false humility, who appear to be very self-effacing and passive. However, deep within his or her soul is a striving to “be somebody.” People with this kind of soul will offer up many testimonies of their inadequacies and their lack of ambition, yet when confronted, they will show in their actions that they are not at all convinced of their own unworthiness. In fact, when there is even a minor concern or question about their actions or motives in a particular situation, they will become extremely defensive and resentful. If others show a tendency to take their self-belittling attitude and recriminations seriously, a seething anger may erupt that is out of balance and extreme. For instance, while the so-called “humble” will proclaim their unworthiness, a witchcraft demon will cause them to make great demands for consideration and admiration from others. The witchcraft spirit will rise up and expose itself in these “low key” people, presenting a strong unwillingness to accept even the slightest degree of criticism.
You will find many people like this among professing Christians. They are passive on the outside but inside, they are seething, ravenous wolves who will use a humble demeanor and manner as a weapon to bring others down. Repressed anger and envy has opened passive-aggressive people to a religious demon. In such cases, passivity masquerades and humility. The inner hostilities are hidden from view by a veneer of a pretended politeness, feigned fair play and an appearance of good fellowship. This “front” is a coverup used in subtle ways to move against perceived enemies in an effort to shame others with their “nice” behavior. The facade consists of pretenses, hidden fears and some genuine caring mixed in with an ability to make YOU look bad in comparison to THEM.
Negative church people posing as Christians, is an ever abiding reality. The wheat and the tare grow together so we know for a fact, negative people operate in and out of church. Negative people posing as Christians are not in the minority either. These type of people, spend their waking hours complaining about everything and everybody. If they can’t bring at least one person down a day, they can’t sleep. The word of God teaches us that the mouth of the wicked is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: and that vanity and mischief are under their tongues (Psalm 10:7).
DID “THUS SAITH THE LORD?”
Only the Holy Ghost knows how many in Christiandom who claim to be prophets by declaring , “thus saith the Lord,” or “God told me,” or “I was led in the spirit”—are really the messengers of Satan sent to control your life in God. Today, in the 21st century, churches are filled with soothsayers and charismatic hype masters whose message from the pulpit is merely a gratification of the flesh. There is aseductive spirit of divination sweeping across churches of all persuasions, seeking to control the lives of the un-suspecting. Laityleaders serve as divination foot-soldiers,forearmed “with a word” to maintain the power and authority of those in the pulpits. Demons help out also as they whisper into congregant’s ears, “give a $1000 dollars.”
I can recall that one of my associates, Minister Kellie, completely delivered depression in record time by the power of God, was approached by a member of her former church. Although Kellie’s progress is sheerly remarkable, the former church member approached her with a “thus saith the Lord.” “I had a vision of you and I saw you have a python snake attached to your spirit.Are you okay? Since you left the church, we’ve all had concerns about you. We’ve all been praying for your return to the fold.”
In one of our mentoring telephone conversations, Kellie casually mentioned this but I could tell that she was shaken by it. I yelled through the telephone “NO! STOP. THAT WORD CAME FROM THE HEART OF A DEMON ASSIGNED TO STEAL YOUR RECOVERY FROM YOU! DO NOT RECEIVE IT!!!!”
Certainly, professing Christians without knowledge may seem to have good intentions.Yet, when you find yourself in bondage to what they claim God has said about you to them, what does it matter whether they had either good or bad intentions??? The results are the same.Your spirit has been penetrated and the enemy has successfully planted his desires into YOUR spirit to cause you confusion and ultimate harm!!!!
Take it from someone who knows. I am well insulated by God from face to face contact with people who allow demons to use them as messengers of Satan to control my life . I have even learned how to block out my dreams. So when the enemy cannot “reach me,” he’ll make a phone call, send a facebook message or send an email.
Now I know that’s right!
I have received “thus saith the Lords” in emails and over the telephone on quite a few occasions. Now when I personally receive “a word” about someone else, I have learned to “keep my mouth shut.” Control freaks can’t do this. They are under too much compulsion to blurt out knowledge obtained by supernatural means to prove that “they are anointed of God.”
Here is how divination works. The enemy has difficulty “putting a spell on you” unless he first informs YOU about it. Then he will use your self induced anxieties, doubts and fears to bring his plans about in YOUR life. In other words, devils and demons are skilled at making YOU your own worst enemy. You see, it is easier ”do what they do,” with your cooperation and consent. In order to control our lives, the enemy has to “plant his desires” into our spirits.
Recently,someone sent me a message. He had a vision that witches were trying to bring harm on me because of my website and that they wereattempting to put a spell on me. I didn’t scold him. Wouldn’t make any sense cause the damage was already done. Coincidence or not, at that very moment,I was involved in a situation with someone who had “witchcraft in her background.” So of course, my eyebrow was raised but I didn’tpanic. I was just extra careful and observant.
The thing to do is to “watch and pray.”
Keep your mouth shut until the crisis, if there is one, has passed. Don’t let the enemy use YOU to plant fear into someone that you care about.Pray and rest in God. If God showed him that someone was praying against me, then the Holy Ghost was calling him to pray. Fallen angels are extremely skilled at using friends, the people even of your own household, to speak evil into your life. So wisdom is certainly necessary. I learned the hard way to “be slow to speak.”
Therefore, when someone comes to you with a “thus saith the Lord” and it does not compute with you, you must become verbally aggressive.I do it regularly. People may think that I am crazy but I am quick to get animated and boldly declare, “no. I rebuke that. I don’t receive that.”
Sometimes I get worst and like the Lord, I’ll speak directly to that demon and say “get thee behind me.” I don’t care what people think. It is too important that I guard my spirit.
YOU MUST DO THE SAME!

With 30 years in ministry under my belt, I know a thing or two about false prophets. Besides the TV mega preachers that Iwatched for years, I also came to know at least 200 ministers while I was pastoring in a well known denomination. So from my observations, I have designated 3 different types of false prophets. The deceived, the detoured and the diabolical.
There are those false prophets who are really saved but they followed the wrong leaders, and “sucked into themselves” mixed and false doctrines and practices. In short, they heeded and harkened unto the voice of seducing spirits and doctrines of the devil. However, they have not yet departed from the faith. These I call, “the Deceived.” Some of them will be set free. Because of pride, sad to say, others won’t be. Some false prophets would prefer to be caught up in a scandal than to admit that they taught error and thereby “led the people in the wrong direction, away from God, and not toward Him.” They are too spiritually proud to admit that they did not rightly divide the word of God.
Then there is the false prophet who was once used of God mightily, but he or she got deceived by the enemy and fell into disrepute. These I call “the Detoured.” This man or woman becomes a pretender—one who is very dangerous to those who are babes in Christ or who remain carnal Christians. Their followers “stand by their man” even when they should jump ship. The bible has a classic example of how the detoured “Old Prophet” deceived the man of God, resulting in the latter’s death. (I Kings 13)
Then of course, there is the out and out pretender who knows that he or she is serving the spirit of the Anti- Christ and everything they do is a masquerade. These I call “the Diabolical.” They are imposters, planted in among Christians to willfully bring confusion that will lead to destruction.
Every false prophet type— whether the Deceived, the Detoured, and the Diabolical— is equally dangerous. Why? Because they can leave a huge trail of victims. I am humbled and thankful that although I was on the road to becoming a false prophet, the Holy Ghost jerked my chain, then cut it and broke it. When I was deceived by charismatic teachings,” God blessed me by closing doors and blocking me from spreading error. Even though I once had the heart, the skill and the desire of a mega preacher, God purposefully would not allow me to become a popular celebrity.. When a door opened, the Holy Ghost closed it and blocked my way through it. Moreover, among those that I have pastored, even though I personally believed some mixed doctrines, I didn’t teach them to those who allowed me to lead them. So praise God, after 30 years as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have no victims.
For example, I spoke in tongues, but I didn’t teach my followers to do so. I tithed, but I did not preach a “sow a seed,” prosperity gospel. In fact, I was completely self sustaining. I gave back my church salary in the form of tithes and offerings to the churches that I pastored. When I practiced healing and the laying on of hands, I never told anyone to stop taking their medicine and “walk by faith.” I primarily preached the cross, sin, repentance, rebirth and the resurrection. But make NO MISTAKE. The false prophets of all 3 varieties:— the deceived, the detoured and the diabolical— are equally dangerous! Your prayers for them to repent may NOT prevail. And why not?
In order to repent, the false prophet has to do more than apologize and ask for forgiveness from those he has abused and deceived. If he has been made rich off of the backs of poor people by preaching the prosperity gospel, then God will require him or her to “give back” all of that money to the poor. Not too many false prophets are willing to give up those jet planes, million dollar homes and those Bentleys. Even the false prophets who are NOT mega, many of them have practiced the lie for so long, that it is practically impossible to receive the truth and act on it. Far too many have made “ministry” their career and not their calling.
Ask the Apostle Paul. He maintained as a tentmaker. He would not allow any of the churches that he set up to totally provide his livelihood. That is why he could write, “whether abased or exalted, I can do ALL things 4 through Christ who strengthens me.” In other words, JUST SO YOU KNOW, I am not dependent upon YOU to live and to serve my God. When a false prophet’s livelihood is intricately tied to church dollars and resources, he or she is captive to a self made trap that cannot be escaped from without God’s help. Actually, some false prophets have to be stripped naked to find God again, if they ever knew Him. So if you really think a particular false prophet is deceived, perhaps detoured but not diabolical, then your prayer should be “Lord, strip him.”
A word of caution. The religious demon assigned to me tried to set me up to become a false prophet. In several dreams, he showed me standing before huge audiences, walking up and down across a platform with my bible in my hand, preaching and teaching. He even showed me pastoring a church of about 10,000 people. Because I sought after the power to slay in the spirit, after 10 years of seeking, I got it. I could wave my hand, and certain ones would fall out, unconscious. However, I began to question this power because I noticed that the ones in my congregation who fell out the most, were also those who could not STAND for the Lord, relapsing or backsliding constantly. So I said to myself, “Pam, there is something wrong with this so-called gift. This cannot be from the Holy Ghost!” Once I prayed to the Lord and asked Him to “show me the darkness,” I got quite the wakeup call that revealed that the mega preacher phenomena of today is NOT of the Lord. It is a combination of human charisma, “anointed” by the enemy’s power.
So if you are on that road, you need to get off, and get off with a quickness!

The truth about Mary is that she was the Lord’s mother. Yes, she was a virgin! But Mary did not remain a virgin, she went on to have children by carnal knowledge. Before I go on with this article, I’ll say this: Like most a Puerto Ricans, my spiritual life began as a Catholic. My grandmother use to practice Santeria, an idolatrous religion that combines the Catholic worship of saints with African Yoruba deities. As a Catholic, t I did not learn the truth about Mary. What I did learn was the blasphemous practice of worshipping her. What I learned was to bow down to a statue of Mary to give her praise. I did not learn the truth about Mary.
During my deliverance with Pam, the demon in me wailed, moments before Pam cast it out—-, “Nydia is mine. Her grandmother gave her to me.” My grandmother worshiped the Catholic saints.
I thank God that though they tried real hard, the religious demon that seduced me as a Catholic and that bound me as a Charismatic was not able to stop God from saving me 5 years later. The deification of the Lord’s mother is just a small tip of the cultish iceberg. I have long since denounced all ties with the Catholic church. My dear friends, Catholic or otherwise, I want to share something with you. The truth about Mary…
I’d like to share an excerpt from Pam Sheppard’s groundbreaking book entitled, ” Faces of the Religious Demon”. Pam, along with Christian authors like Derek Prince and Rick Joyner write about the religious demon. Yet, Pam’s textbook digs the deepest, and shines floodlights on the scope and intricate wiles of such demons. Pam’s book, ” Faces of the Religious Demon “ is the go to book on the subject of this type of demon. There is no other book of its kind in our world today. As a result of the Holy Spirit using Pam to set me fre from the religious demon, the Lord has given Pam an abundance of revelation backed by scripture.
In regards to ” the truth about Mary ” the Lord’s mother Pam Sheppard writes:
Although not terminology directly used in the Bible, a synonymous term for the RELIGIOUS DEMON in the New Testament is the spirit of Antichrist (John 2:18) The spirit of Anti-Christ will cleverly infiltrate the church and use religion to both deny and defy Christ very sneakily. The Apostle Paul also warned Timothy about seducing spirits that teach false religious doctrine (1 Timothy 3:5). Paul also warned the church of a class of demons that could transform into beings of light,–false apostles and deceitful workers hidden within human vessels, with a clever masquerade of genuine apostles of Christ (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).
The Catholic deification of the Lord’s mother, is yet a very clever device of the spirit of Antichrist. A classic example is evident within Catholicism, where followers not only pray to Mary, but teach that she herself, was immaculately conceived. Truly the deification of the Lord’s mother is subtle, though outright denial of the Lord’s sole divinity.
That is the truth in a nutshell— the truth about Mary. Pam goes into greater detail in the book.
. I would like all who read the above article, to remember the Apostle Paul’s command. Apostle Paul admonished that we should examine ourselves, to see if we are in the faith.
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.
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?
