Brazilian Pastor Urges NJ Women to Take Lead in Combating Sexual Immorality: ‘Women Don’t Need to Be Sexy to Be Beautiful’

Pastor Sarah Sheeva, who is a prominent speaker promoting abstinence in Brazil, held a women’s only service in Kearny, New Jersey recently where she appealed for a return to a more conservative way of life to combat current day sexual immorality.

Sheeva suggested that people return to a 50’s-like conservative fashion to eradicate sexual temptations abundant in modern day society.

The pastor preached in Portuguese in a so called “Princess Service,” at the Abundant Life Community Church (CEVA) last Thursday night. English and Spanish speakers also attended the event with respective translation given.

“She [the character of the 50’s] wants to rescue a fashion that has been lost, a fashion that makes women beautiful without sex appeal. It’s a fashion that rescues and values the female body,” Sheeva said in an interview with The Christian Post.

Some feminists have criticized Sheeva’s proposals as taking women a step backwards. However, Sheeva explains, “I am fighting for our right to be respected without having to use sex appeal.”

“Women are increasingly wearing vulgar clothes, devaluing themselves. And that is a sexist way of thinking.”

Pastor Sheeva made her point by wearing a frilly blue with white polka-dot dress for the “Princess Service.” She admitted that it was not the kind of dress she would ordinarily wear in her every day life, but she wanted to show women that they didn’t need to be “sexy” in the more crude modern way of thinking, to be “beautiful and attractive.”

Sheeva’s preaching on the subject may seem backwards from most modern day women’s way of thinking, however, her words are having an affect, and it has been noticed that attendees of her service are changing the way they dress.

“They embellish themselves to go to the Princess Service, learning how to love themselves without having to be ‘sexy’.”

The women-only service consists of lessons that teach women how not to attract the wrong type of men, and are promoted as based on biblical principles. The message highlight the fact that women should send the right signals to men, and that all begins from the way they are dressed.

Sheeva points out that many women attract wrong men even inside the church and, according to her, this is due the way they act outwardly, which is caused by cultural influence as well as a lack of biblical knowledge.

In the first of her lessons during her Princess Service in CEVA she spoke about the book of Song of Songs, and in particular highlighted chapter 9, verses 8 and 9. She used these passages to explain how it describes two kinds of women: one who is like a wall and another who is like a door.

According to Sheeva, a “wall” describes women who value themselves, otherwise known as the ones who are “hard to get.” These kinds of women, she said, are “princesses.”

In contrast, a “door” describes those who easily compromise their own values to please men, and satisfy the desires of the flesh.

In order to change from a “door” to a “wall” lifestyle, Sheeva said women have to not only accept Christ deeply but equip themselves with the word of God, as well as putting it into practice in their daily lives.

Sheeva declared firmly that the Bible clearly teaches that sex should only be within the boundaries of marriage. “There is no such thing as ‘dating’,” she said.

She suggested though that a kiss was not necessarily a sin if conducted prior to marriage, but that it could trigger preparation for sex.

The pastor stated her belief that churches have the responsibility to monitor believers from the beginning of their path of faith, as well as provide proper discipleship and spiritual counseling. She also feels that all church pastors should provide counseling on sexuality to believers.

“In general, we should work with single people, because they often end up marrying because of external pressure. And often the solution is not marriage, but to first restore the individual emotionally. A person who has a lot of emotional baggage is not a person who is restored emotionally and certainly is not one ready to get married,” she said, recalling her own experience where she first came to church, but had to spend years being restored.

Sheeva also spoke of her dream to hold a Brazilian Marcana stadium-sized conference for “Princes” and “Princesses” in 2013. She wanted to do this “so they can unite in true fellowship, already knowing the principles of how to behave with each other.”

‘How to Get Rid of Jerks’: Brazilian Pastor to Promote Abstinence in NJ

A self-confessed “ex-nymphomaniac” Brazilian pastor and missionary from the International Cell Church is preparing to preach about how women can avoid attracting “jerks” in their lives. The controversial subject will be taught alongside teachings on sexuality and sanctification inNew Jersey in October.

Pastor Sarah Sheeva is preparing the teachings for an only-women service on October 4, and will follow that up with a Sanctification Seminar on Oct. 6-7 at the Abundant Life Evangelical Community Church (CEVA), in Kearny, New Jersey. The events will be held in Portuguese with English translation provided.

Sheeva was previously a well known secular singer in Brazil, but she has since come to testify throughout the Latin American country how God has worked in her and allowed her to control her sexual desires. She has now become a prominent speaker promoting sexual abstinence before marriage.

Her only-women services have become famous throughout Brazil and are now affectionately referred to as “Princess Services.” The services attempt to advise single women on issues related to sexuality and intimacy.

“There [in the Princess Service], single women learn how to stop attracting “Jerks” in their lives,” she explained in a recent email to The Christian Post.

The pastor underwent a conversion in 1999 and has gone on to testify about the extraordinary process of sanctification she experienced, which has prompted her to try and reach out to others struggling with similar issues related to sex and intimate relationships.

Pastor Sheeva has recently held her “Princess Service” and “Sanctification Seminar” for Portuguese-speaking believers in Florida.

Her Sanctification Seminars are open to singles as well as whole families, without gender or age restriction. However, male adults and children above 2-years-old are strictly prohibited from attending the Princess Services.

Virgins Wanted: Brazilian Woman Selling Virginity May Face Spiritual Consequences, Says Pastor.

Brazilian Catarina Migliorini, who is just 20-years-old, became a viral sensation in recent weeks after she decided to auction off her virginity to the highest bidder. The move has sparked a wave of criticism and debate about sexual morality and prostitution issues, with Christian leaders speaking out to offer guidance on sex and spirituality.

Migliorini reportedly brought her studies in Physical Education to a halt in order to take part in a documentary called “Virgins Wanted.” She has received widespread rebuke for her decision but she has attempted to justify her decision to saying, “Many people meet unknown people in bars, have sex on the same night and forget about them the next day; others lose their virginity with boyfriends but then after that things change.”

Brazilian Pastor Sarah Sheeva, who herself has remained abstinent for the past nine years, has weighed in on the highly publicized controversy, saying to The Christian Post that there are possible consequences to a person losing their virginity in the way Migliorini is attempting to.

According to the pastor, Migliorini will be spiritually connected to the man she has sexual relations with until the day she dies, even if she holds no long term feelings for him.

“Those who believe in the Scriptures know it reveals that sex is a covenant that goes beyond the physical body; it is a spiritual covenant between a man and a woman. This young woman will be connected to the man that she will have the sexual relationship with until death. She will be connected to him spiritually not emotionally,” Sheeva told CP.

The Brazilian pastor, who is a well known advocate for sexual abstinence before marriage, has said that unless Migliorini has an experience with Jesus, the covenant can never be broken. “Only the blood of Jesus Christ can clean and break an alliance like this, which is beyond the physical body, and involves the spiritual body.”

In a recently held women’s-only service in Kearny, New Jersey, the Brazilian pastor gave lessons on how women can value themselves without compromising their own values simply to please men and the desires of the flesh. The preacher was clear that according to Biblical teachings, sex should only be “within marriage.”

The director of the “Virgins Wanted” project is Australian. Justin Sisely has explained that the project has been a long time goal of his, and he originally had planned to hold the project in Las Vegas two years ago. However, because of the legal restrictions concerning prostitution there he was forced to move the idea back to his native Australia.

Twenty-year-old Migliorini signed up to work for the project with Sisely, and bids for her virginity have since reached $190,000. The project to sell the young woman’s virginity will eventually be turned into a full-length documentary if Sisely’s plans go ahead.

In previous statements, Migliorini has said she sees the project as a business transaction. She recently also announced that she plans to give a portion of the money raised by selling her virginity to charities in Santa Catarina state, in the southern part of Brazil.

Pastor Jaime Kemp, who has a Doctorate in Family Ministry, has previously expressed his indignation to The Christian Post about the matter, saying when he heard about the news it deeply saddened him.

“It is the use and abuse of the girl,” he said to CP. “We are using and abusing a person or a group of people. It is sad!”

Kemp, originally from California, has written a book about the 20 consequences of premarital sex, which attempts to open the eyes of youth to the issues of sex, and to realize that there are serious consequences to their actions when it comes to sex.

The “Virgins Wanted” project has said that the “encounter” between Migliorini and the highest bidder would take place on a private flight from Australia to the United States, apparently to avoid prostitution laws.

What it Means to Be Free?

by Sarah Sheeva

Aug 2, 2008

Do you know what it is to be free?

Many people think that “ to be free” means to be able to do whatever you want in your life.

To be able to satisfy all your desires…

Therefore ,” to be free” it does not mean “to do whatever you want”.

The meaning of “being free” goes deeper

Than that…

Basically ’to be free” is the opposite of “to be a prisoner”

What is a “prison”?

According to the dictionary the word prison comes from the Latin word prensione ou prehensione.
1. place where criminals are confined: a secure place where somebody is confined as punishment for a crime or while waiting to stand trial
2. confinement: a place or condition of captivity or unwanted restraint His fears are a prison that he cannot escape.

You can observe that one of the meaning for this word is “ something that confine or captive the spirit or the heart”…

But anyway, what the word “prison” means for you?

A while ago the Holy Spirit of God taking to me, brought me a deeper understanding about what “prison” means.

“Prison” is when your are not able to stop doing something , even knowing that the thing is bad for me.

This is a good definition of “prison”.

When you are incapable to get rid of something that makes you bad…

You have knowledge that it is bad for you …but anyway you can’t let it go.

This is prison.

To be free is the opposite of being a prisoner.

And despite many people’s thinking, to be free is not “ to do whatever you want” because many times people do whatever they want and still they are not free…

SOMETIMES WE WANT THE WORST FOR OURSELVES…

For example, a person that suffers from drug addiction can decide to spend all his money and property on drug…

He just wants to do it …

However, if he decides that he does not want to do drugs anymore , probably he will not be able to stop it…

It happens because his desire is “confined” in drugs. His will is confined in drug.

Even knowing that drugs are bad, the person just can’t stop … This person was able to do whatever he wanted to but he is not free to stop doing drugs, he does not stop…

The truth is: “To be free” it does not mean “to do whatever you want“…

To be free is to be capable to say NO for everything that is not good for you!

This is the real meaning of freedom!

To be free is “to have a choice” …

To be free is “ to have an option to do the best for yourself ! (not the worst…)

A free person always are able to choose GOOD instead of BAD.

To be free is to be able to choose, without nobody’s pressure , by your own and spontaneous will everything that is GOOD for you, not BAD…

Some people think that Christians are “prisoners of religion”

Other people think that “ the life of sanctity” that the real Christian lives ( and proclaims) is a prison where people are not allowed to do anything, a prison with a lot or rules, repression and so on…

This is a wrong perception of the truth .

For real, Christians are allowed to do everything that everyone else do…

The difference is:

The real Christian, the one that lives in sanctity, is so free that he is able to choose GOD instead of BAD for his life!

He can say NO to sin and YES to sanctity ! Alleluia!

Reflect this:

Why is the real Christian free?
Because unlike the impious (Psalms 1:6, Proverbs 4:19), the real Christian is not lead by his own will but by Gods Word!

The real Christian knows that our own human desires are vulnerable and have no value , and make us perish , because sometimes we want the worst for ourselves .

I lived this situation many times.
Even in relationships.

Many times a person get involved with someone that can not respond with the same love, and even knowing that this relationship makes her feel miserable, making her suffer, she can’t get out of the situation.

Many times we do not SEE the truth!

One of the first thing I learned in the Bible.
God’s will is GOOD, PLEASANT AND PERFECT.

THIS IS HIS WORD FOR US ! (Romans 12:2)

I learned also that his will is that way, so his will is much better than my will.
I learned to present all my desires in His hands… all my wishes. I finally decided to surrender and trust, even to renounce my own will.

But , what all of this has to do with freedom?

Jesus said:

“… you will know the truth and the truth will set you free!” (John 8:32)

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except trough me…” (John 14:6)

It kind a like this:

The truth is Goodness… Lie is badness.

The truth comes from GOD… The lie comes from the devil.

When we are free, we chose Goodness, and not Badness, remember?

Knowing the Truth has everything to do with being free. “You’ll know the truth and the truth will set you free”…

(Got it ?)

To be free is TO KNOW THE TRUTH…

To know Goodness …

To know Jesus…

And … when you know Jesus truly, you desire to be the way He is…

And He is Holy! (Jesus is Holy!)

That’s why (because he is Holy) you start to desire to be holly, to live a holy life, walk in holiness on the earth…

That means sanctity is part of your freedom…

To be holy has everything to do with to be free…

Despite many people think, who lives in sanctity ( who is really holy and do not live doing bad) is not “attached” to anything!

Neither religion, nor culture, habits, or delights , !

Who is holy, makes his desires to become “holy”…

His pleasure and will are “committed ” to God‘s will…

I can testify:

I am free!

Truly free!

I’ve been to many periods and process of sanctification in my life…

I know it is an eternal learning journey…

But nowadays, after the long way I’ve walked, I can tell you from inside my heart, because it is the truth: I succeeded!

For sure , it was not for my own strength , it was God working in my life! But I succeeded!

Today I live another reality!

wonderful…

My desires are more and more attached to God’s desires

And I am more and more in love with him!

Nowadays I am noxious towards sin and all that is bad for my life.

That‘s why I can testify one thing: it is wonderful to be free!

It is worthy to pay the price of being holy in a world corrupted by immoralities!

It is worthy to serve God!

The most wonderful is to a Christian!!!

I do not feel loneliness…

I do not feel emptiness…

I am free!

I am able to say NO to sin.
But the “NO” is not lip service, it comes from inside my heart!

I am delightful in little things in life…

I have interior peace… a peace that “ surpasses all understanding and guard my heart ”…

. (Philippians4:7)

I have happiness of being alive…

There’s no words to describe the love I have inside myself, the love that did not exist before I knew Jesus.

The love that covers everything, overcome everything, forgive everything, heals everything!

A love that express His Grace!

It is awesome to be a Christian

It is awesome to be free!

And it is truth!
The Bible is truth : His Grace is truly enough for !

“my strength is made perfect in weakness! (2 Corinthians 12:9)

And this is for everybody…

“ And you will seek me and find me, when you search for me with all your heart . (Jeremiah 29:13)

For all those who chose goodness for his own will.

The good, perfect, pleasant God’s will…
That’s why you also can be free!

Make an effort to know the truth! “the kingdom of haven suffers violence and the violent takes it” (Mathews 11:12)

Look inside yourself and reflect about your life….

Think about how you have been living…

Have you been seeking God?

Have you been related to you Father in the heaven?

Have you set some time aside to Know Jesus?

Are you free?

Have you been able to say No to sin and everything that is bad for you?

Have you won or been defeated by your own will?

Have you lived in Sanctity? Or doing bad?

Have you been able to say “Yes” to God and “NO to the devil?

What are the choices you have done?

Think about it…

Analyze yourself…

Review your life!

Ask” in the name of Jesus” God’s Holiness. That his Holiness enters you body!

And everything is going to change from now on.

In the moment you ask Him, the truth is going to come, and the knowledge comes with the truth!

The truth enters your body, and sets you free!

The ignorance is defeated! The truth won!

Now the devil can not deceive you with his lies !Glorify God for that !!!

Now you are free to live in sanctity. With no accusation, no prejudice

Eventually…

You have the choice, chose what is good, chose to be free!

Wanna be free?

“…And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32)

Nobody loves you like Jesus…

Stay in peace!

Pastor Sarah Sheeva

  1. Hey,

    Just saw you minister here in Santarém. Thank you so much for the powerful words spoken to our church´s youth. Such a blessing!! I´m praying that the doors will open for you to go to the US.

    Micah

    P.S. Great english!

  2. SARAH você é uma benção nas mãos de Deus de verdade. Leio muitas criticas a seu respeito, pessoas enraizadas de alguma sentimento que não é bom, porque pelo espirito de Deus, deveriamos ficar felizes por Deus ter resgatado uma pessoa do meio pagão, num guerra que o diabo ja tinha como ganha.
    Eu sei que você não se abala por isso e nem deve, porque o seu trabalho é lindo.. eu sou jovem, e sei como é dificil renunciar ao mundo, e como é boom ter alguém que pense como nós, para esclarecer muitas duvidas. Jesus È maravilhoso, e, como fez essa obra tão maravilhosa em você, quero que faça comigo e com minha geração..
    È muito linda a forma como você fala, e se expoe por amor a Deus, em obediencia ao Espirito Santo!!!
    Que o Senhor te dê sempre forças para nos ensinar,
    somos livres em cristo Jesus.
    ;*

  3. Hello there!

    I have a burning question to ask you. Why do you still keep your name “Sheeva”? It is a contradiction to preach the Word and bear a name that contradicts It through the spritiual legality of the hinduism and its creed.

    I understand the your name was your parents’ choice, but nothing for nothing, if you aspire to be a Pastor and be credible, the name got to go. For the uninformed, the name may be OK, but for anyone that has read about hinduism and its paganism, the name is hard to openly accept.

    Rgds,

    Ron

  4. Hi Sarah, I´ve just watched your interview on SBT. I was really encouraged by your testimony and I pray the Lord will continue to use you and protect you from falling. I’m also a missionary who like you heard the voice of the Holly Spirit and left for missions. And you know what?! He he’s given me my Prince there while serving Him. He is also a missionary; we actually met in the field at the time. We are now married for 8 years, have 2 beautiful kids and continue to serve as missionaries. We walk the walk of faith sharing with people around us and do not get tired to see the powerful hands of the Lord working in us and through us as we trust Him.
    I was led by the Lord to write you and leve with you Joshua 1 and also Psalm 41to meditate
    May the Lord bless you always. You are his Princess!!!

  5. Congrats for inovating and preaching in English as well! I am a translator/Interpreter/English Teacher in companies and would like to use your message to teach English as a second language whenever the opportunity to share the gospel comes and i have had more and more opportunities to share the gospel in my classes. Thank you so much! God bless you always! Joshua

  6. Dearest Sarah
    I live in England for 15 years. A friend just sent a DVD of your message at the Congresso das Guerreiras no Bom Retiro, and I confess it has been a revolution in my life. Thank you for stepping out in boldness!
