COGIC News: Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr Testimony About West Angeles Success!!

Reader, listen below to Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr.'s testimony about how God blessed him to overcome adversity and create a wildly successful ministry at West Angeles Church of God in Christ. I've not heard before Bishop Blake's testimony about his early years in ministry.....this is very encouraging for anyone who's despising the day of small things.



  1. Miss Ann,

    The WORD of God is for life, preservation, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

    There are many examples of the men of God in the bible, none of them was blinged out like these preachers of today.

    Moses and Elijah who appeared along side Jesus, had one of the most profound and life changing ministries but they did not have property they could claim (Elijah just had a cloak).

    Paul, Timothy, James, Jude and John are the apostles whose churches were in people's homes or in prison.

    Our LORD Jesus is our best example of living in poverty (the son of man has no where to lay his head), yet knowing that the world to come has more than we could imagine (mansions in his father's house).

    Blake might have a testimony of rags to riches, but it is not because God has blessed him so...

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want...

    1. You are really ignorant about what the high priests in the Old and New Testaments wore. The high priests wore 12 JEWELS on their robes that represented the 12 tribes of Israel. Fine linen and breastplates adorned the priests of God.

      You had to list Elijah BUT you ignored generations of priests! Elijah was a rarity...and Jesus came as a "suffering lamb." The next time we see Jesus, HE WILL BE BLINGED OUT---read the book of Revelation...which is in the KJV!

    2. Hi Anonymous,
      Let me reiterate my ignorance. The WORD of God is for life, preservation, wisdom, knowledge and understanding (Psalm 119).
      In the Old Testament, the high priests were of the tribe of Levi and direct descendants of Aaron the first high priest, chosen of God to go before him to offer the sacrifice for sin. These were the ones who went before God in the holy of holies with the 12 jewels representing the 12 tribes. Not all Levites went behind the veil/curtain (Leviticus).
      In the New Testament, Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ and a former Pharisee explained to the Hebrews that the office of the Levitical high priest was made null and void by Jesus’ death and resurrection. He, Jesus Christ, is now our high priest after the order of Melchisedec, King of Salem, priest of the most high God (Hebews 7).
      The precious stones described and worn by Jesus Christ, our soon coming king, in the book of Revelation are for us to understand and confirm the WORD of God that the earth is the LORD’s (Psalm 24). God does not have to make merchandize of us to have his kingdom blinged out (2 Peter 2:3). He OWNS his bling!
      Blake et al are typical Pharisees and Sadducees. You might need to beware of their leaven (Matthew 16:6). Matthew 23 describes how this kind loves to play dress up, be seen, acknowledged.
      If you do read the WORD of God as you claim, you would recognize the number of times Jesus describes and warns us of false prophets in detail and why Paul and the rest of the apostles do likewise.
      “God, who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in times past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;” (Hebrews 1:1-2). Let Jesus be YOUR example (John 13:15), and NOT mortal man.
      Our duty as believers is to fear God and keep his commandments (Ecclesiastes 12). But we can’t do this if we do not understand the WORD (Psalm 119). This is more important than we trying to compare men’s earthly greed with God’s glory. If we are to boast, let us boast in Christ (Galatians 6).
      The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want…

    3. Amen Anonymous...Ding, Ding are so on POINT!!!
      It's not that they can't understand, rather it is they won't understand.

    4. @both Anonymouses, a man with a RING in his finger (I bet BOTH of you are wearing one right NOW)!

      A man with a CANE in his hand, because he walks with a limp due to AGE...if you two make it past 60! then you might use one as well!

      A cross necklace round his neck like most OF YOU wear jewelry...DOES NOT MAKE Bishop Blake EVIL!

      Since you Anonymous are such a big FAN of the folks like John the Baptist, then go on ahead and eat wild GRASS-hoppers (aka locusts) like he did! That's your right...But don't get mad at me for eating my STEAK dinner!!

      Like PAUL said, "I know how to be abased and to live rich! In season and out! This is Blake's season of plenty and he should enjoy it.

      Tsk tsk tsk

    5. Hey Anon,

      I'm not wearing a ring - at all! (And I am wondering why a Christian would bet...)

      I am not a fan of folks like John the Baptist like you claim. I, however, understand that the voice in the desert that proclaimed "Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand", was the precursor to Our LORD and Saviour who had no form or majesty (Isaiah).

      And yes, I will debase myself to eat locusts and wild honey knowing that in the end after my race, I will receive a crown of glory.

      Blake on the other hand has exalted himself and has had his reward (Matthew 6).

      I leave you with this "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." Proverbs 4:7

      You can only do this if you read and understand the WORD of God other than spewing out trash all for mortal man. Don't trust in man, you will be cursed (Jeremiah 17).

      The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want...

    6. Tsk tsK tsk...don't JUST stop there, at the verse you quoted Paul...let me finish the rest of it for you..." everywhere and in all things, I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need". Paul learned the "secret" of BEING CONTENT IN WHATEVER circumstances he was in, just like John the Baptist learned the secret as he ate locust and honey, being the forerunner of the ONE whose shoe laces he was not worthy to tie. So no need to apply your silly application for anyone to eat locust and honey. I could care less how many steaks you or Blake eat. I'd rather go yo heaven content in Jesus with locusts in my belly, than go to hell fat of the biggest porterhouse any day. Obviously you went to Blake's Bible School as evident by your immature interpretation of a simple verse my little 5 year old granddaughter could understand. Evenbin hisv testimony here, he cited none of God's Word. GET OUTTA HERE!!!

    7. I already read and know the Whole scripture, so I agree "..let me finish the rest of it for you...everywhere and in all things, I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need". Paul learned the "secret" of BEING CONTENT IN WHATEVER circumstances he was in..."

      Yep. I agree with that. Now...since this is Bishop Blake's season to Abound, Who would begrudge him of that? You.

      Tsk. It's a shame a man can't even walk out ONE day of the week with a cane and a ring in his latter years without some folks tryin to throw stones!

    8. And it's a shame 6hat you are trying to throw stoned at those explaining the scriptures correctly. No such thing as a person having a SEASON.

    9. We are to be CONTENT in all the seasons, winter, spring, summer and fall. GET OUTTA HERE!!!

    10. Hi Anon (“Thou who is enamored by Blake’s ring and cane”),

      I have nothing against Blake. What I am against is Blake and his kind blinding you and you believing that this is of God. He is not talking about repentance nor is he talking about obedience to God’s word. He is talking about his achievements that have nothing to do with your salvation. I, on the other hand, see the danger therein and I am trying to warn you not to be beholden by his accomplishments. Why? Blake’s achievements are not going to lead you to life everlasting. But instead, you have chosen to worship the creature instead of the creator (Romans 1:25) and that is sin.

      Blake is not portraying the life he is living in flesh as one who lives by faith in Jesus Christ (Galatians 2:20) but one who is abounding above and beyond his wildest dreams (yet not being sincere that all this is from your tithe, offerings, conference tickets, and other Blake-COGIC product purchases). The more people in church, the more money in the bank (ching ching $$$).

      When I mentioned the simple life of the prophets, apostles and our LORD Jesus Christ, I did it to show that actually blinging out does not correspond to living according to the commandments of God. Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:25). This is because God knows that the cares of this world turn people away from him.

      I will leave you with more scripture. I know how important it is for those who see danger to warn others about it lest they perish (Ezekiel 33).

      “But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord”. (Jeremiah 9:24).

      The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want…
