THE OCCULT TEACHINGS OF GWEN SHAW
While a missionary living in Berlin, Germany, I was honored to meet Gwen Shaw who I was told had predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Today, I have discovered disturbing information regarding her and her ministry, "End Times Handmaidens and Servants".

THE END-TIME HANDMAIDENS & SERVANTS from Watch Unto Prayer

"Today there are many New Age cults disguised as “Christian ministries.” These cults exert as much control over their members as do the more blatant New Age cults, only they use more subtle methods which are cloaked in Biblical terminology. Such methods of control include requiring the taking of “vows”, which Jesus forbade (Matt. 5:34), and prolonged “fasts” which leave the cult member in a physically weakened and mentally passive state and, as a result, susceptible to cult manipulation and paranormal experiences. Like New Age cults, these pseudo-Christian cults are usually led by charismatic leaders, such as Gwen Shaw, who function as conduits for Satan to transfer evil spirits to large masses of unquestioning followers. One mode of demonic transfer in pseudo-Christian cults is the indiscriminate “laying on of hands” which is known in Hindu occultism as “Shaktipat.” This occult technique is named after Shakti, another name for Parvati, wife of the god, Shiva.

"The apostle Paul admonished Timothy, “Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.” (I Tim. 5:22) It stands to reason that this principle works both ways. Like the “divine touch” of the Hindi guru, if the cult leader is secretly involved in occult activity, his/her followers are at serious risk of receiving evil spirits that are transferred by the laying on of hands. Which is the reason God warned His people to “test the spirits”: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1) This verse implies that the spiritual state of those in leadership positions cannot be determined by outward appearances. This hidden but crucial factor must be ascertained through prayer and careful evaluation according to the Word of God: “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” (John 7:24)"

THE OCCULT TEACHINGS OF GWEN SHAW
Love, The Law of the Angels, which is required reading for all End-Time Handmaidens and Servants, is a primer on Gnostic Occultism. Every chapter presents fundamental Gnostic doctrines cloaked in Biblical terminology along with occult practices that are expressly forbidden in Scripture. This report examines these Gnostic doctrines and occult practices as they are found in Gwen Shaw’s book. However, it is more than an expose of Shaw’s teachings—it is a treatise on Gnostic Occultism which will inform Christians on the key doctrines and practices of this revived heresy. It is designed to equip believers to recognize the various Gnostic heresies and associated occult practices in other pseudo-Christian sources.

ETH&S *ANOINTED YOUTH RETREAT*
Gwen Shaw has predicted a “changing of the guard” in the Church after which “anointed children will have God’s authority to preach the Word with signs following.” What signs and lying wonders will accompany the upcoming generation of *anointed children* who are being prepared for ministry by the End-Time Handmaidens and Servants? Angel Apparitions . . .“Eye of Shiva”. . . Shaktipat . . . Ingesting Gold Dust . . . Superconductivity . . . Luciferic Initiation . . . Translation . . .

THE END-TIME HANDMAIDENS & SERVANTS CULT
A former member of the End-Time Handmaidens & Servant, Mark Scheiderer speaks from personal experience of Gwen Shaw’s destructive influence on his own family and those of other ETH&S members whose marriages ended in divorce. Mark also exposes some of the Shaw’s aberrant teachings, which, finding some basis in Mormonism, promote contact with “familiar spirits” and other occult practices.

TESTIMONY OF A FORMER END-TIME HANDMAIDEN
A former End-Time Handmaiden has written her recollections of the cultic experiences she had and false teachings she received in the ETH&S.
