Image
Reader the late Bishop Eddie Long’s estate has been hit with a posthumous tax lien according to reports. According to doc’s, the IRS is asking for $335,216.34 from the late Bishop’s estate. If his estate doesn’t come up with the back taxes, the IRS can seize assets, cash, and any property to get what it’s owed.  Long who died of cancer back in January, left behind his wife Vanessa Long and his adult children.
The Long’s have a great group of people surrounding them, so we’re sure they will get this taken care of.

Church Mess: Pastor Jamal Bryant Has Been Found In Contempt of Court Over Child Support Case!

Image
Reader, good Friday morning to everyone, I 'm praying everyone reading this post have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

So, The Jasmine BRAND.com has an exclusive report  that mega preacher and ‘The Preachers’ talk show co-host Jamal Bryant was found in contempt of court, for his failure to obtain medical insurance for his child, along with failing to pay for expenses. Now a judge has ordered him to pay up ASAP.

Here’s the latest: On June 6th, the judge came back with his decision on the matter. The order states the issues that Bryant’s baby mama (LaToya Odom) raised were Bryant failing to pay child support on time, failure to provide medical & life insurance and failure to pay 75% of the uninsured medical expenses.
After reviewing the evidence, he found Bryant did not pay his child support untimely. However, he noted that he did fail to obtain medical &  life insurance for his kid and failed to pay 75% of the medical expen…

Gospel Singers Question Lecrae’s Gospel Award After Distancing Himself From Christian Rap.

Image
Reader since Lecrae doesn’t want to identify himself as a gospel rapper, some gospel musicians do not believe he should have accepted the BET Award for the Best Gospel/Inspirational Artist which he received Sunday.


Bishop Hezekiah Walker, the gospel singer who also heads the Love Fellowship Tabernacle in Brooklyn, New York, suggested on Instagram Tuesday some Christian rappers who could have accepted the BET Award since they all consider themselves to be gospel rappers.


“Hahz, Twyse, Da’Truth thank you for staying true to the Gospel as a Gospel Rapper. #BET Awards,” Walker’s infographic reads. “It’s ok not to be a true gospel artist but if NOT don’t accept the AWARD give it to those who are..” It seems Walker is not the only gospel music artist who feels that way, since gospel singer and Pastor Deitrick Haddon reposted the message to his own Instagram page. While Haddon did not elaborate on his post, his wife Dominique Haddon revealed why she agreed with her husband. "I 100% agree …

Can A Husband Rape His Wife? - Pastors Divided On The Issue.

Image
Reader, good Thursday morning to everyone, I 'm praying everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Like I have said in this space many of times.....we who hold up the blood bought banner of Christ can make the Bible along with the Apostle Paul, say and support just about anything we want them to.  Some clergies are saying that the Bible teach that a husband can actually RAPE his own wife by using First Corinthians 7: 2-5 as justification.


The issue of rape within the confines of marriage is a tricky and controversial one, and has been a subject of many debates. The question as to whether a wife can be violated by her spouse has some Jamaica clergy members having mixed views on the issue.

Presently, Jamaica does not recognize rape within a marriage unless the parties are separated. Reverend Rennard White, who has…

Should Churches Display The American Flag In Their Sanctuaries?

Image
Reader to fly or not to fly? That is the question of the day! This coming July 4th weekend, many churches in our nation will choose to honor America during the worship service. Some will include America-centered songs, military-oriented hymns, and perhaps recitation of the pledge of allegiance. Others will honor those in attendance who served in the military. A few churches will preach sermons equating America of today with Israel of old: God’s chosen nation. The vast majority will display the American flag.







I love the USA and I love my country, but when I enter a sanctuary, my concern and focus should be spiritual in nature, not political. With exception on a Memorial day service and military funerals. I'm  against flags, or national symbols of state in the worship space. I feel that it is a confusing symbol that leads to a "patriotic" brand of Christianity that implies there is something patriotic about being Christian and vice versa.

This article outlines why.

Reader a Christian nonprofit reportedly funneled millions in donations to personal accounts. Back in 2009, Jay Sekulow ran a Christian nonprofit called Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (Case for short) that is now being accused of grifting poor and jobless people into donating money that was then steered toward Sekulow, his family and their businesses.

The Lord Appears Once Again With David E. Taylor In Hagerstown.

Image
Reader I just watched a video of David E. Taylor who's a proclaimed apostle saying he can hydro jump to heaven and go to the throne of glory and that's how he gets his word for the people.

I have never heard so much ridiculousness in my entire life of living. People like that is who is misleading the church into the wrong direction!! People read your bible! Don't let false prophets mislead you. Mr. Taylor is the type we call a prosperity preacher  that spend all the money donated to his or her "ministry" on clothes, cars, houses, and etc.

He also posted the above pictures to social media with the following comment....which I'm still trying to figure it out:

The Lord appears again with David E. Taylor in Hagerstown, MARYLAND..!! The Face Of The Father Is Shown Here!! His forehead, His cheek, His nose, His chin...!!! HOW REMARKABLE!!Am I missing something here? I don't see what he sees in the picture. Do you?

Well here we go, there's a new Bible App coming, that will include translations that refer to God in gender-neutral terms and a library of progressive devotionals and other resources.

Reader, after only being two years at the helm of one of the nation’s first Black mega-churches, it's rumored on social media that Fred Price Jr. has stepped aside from the ministries for reasons unknown. A pastor sabbaticals are great and much needed I believe but you don't hear about people's going on them these days.

The Return Of Apostle Chyna L. Davis!

Image
Reader good Monday morning to everyone, I 'm praying everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

According to social media it's being alleged that Chyna L Davis who was born a man and was posing as a female Apostle/Prophetess, is once again back in the pulpit preaching. Apostle Chyna Davis is back preaching and was apart of a revival just last week in what city is not clear. (the periscope has since been removed).




Prophetess Chyna Davis, 25, formerly of Sumter, South Carolina, speaks in tongues and claims to make true prophecies that comes to pass.  She has a riveting testimony, two growing churches and an international following on social media. The problem for Chyna is, her critics, say she is a man dressed in drag desecrating the Lord's good name and leading His people astray. According to reports, when he/she gets exposed back in the day he/she would moved from state to state and start all ov…

Lord Have Mercy,So This Happened To A Prominent Bishop,Who Is A Detroit Police Commissioner.

Image
Reader good Sunday morning to everyone, I 'm praying everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

If these police are so scared that they are pulling guns on citizens in broad daylight during routine traffic stops then maybe they need to find another job because obviously they're too afraid for the job as a police officer.



Bishop Edgar Vann, the longtime leader of Second Ebenezer Church in Detroit, and a member of the city’s Board of Police Commissioners says he was pulled over after leaving a commission meeting last week......then ordered by a Detroit police officer to open all the windows of the vehicle, remove the key from the ignition and place his keys on the vehicle’s hood. While he isn’t disputing the citations he was issued, he did take issue with the officer’s approach. He claims the officer, who’s race he declined to reveal, approached his vehicle with his gun drawn and his finger on the tri…

Black Hebrew Israelite Mother Has Allowed Her 13 Year Old Daughter To Married Her Husband!!

Image
Reader unbelievable!! One of the many wonderful things I love about "America The Beautiful" is the freedom to practice any religion of your choosing.....but when your religious freedom choice caused physical harm to others then your religious freedom choice has cross the line, you must pay the cost. The freedom to choose and practice your own religion without anyone interfering is a fundamental human right. It's a civil right as well, protected by the U.S. Constitution.  


Now this Hebrew Israelite mother after she was arrested told detective that she allowed her 13 year old daughter to married her husband because it  was part of their cultural belief system. Here we have a mother, who allowed a scumbag to not only live in the home with her children, but she allowed this 47 year old vile scum bag to tell her daughter they were married at 13 and let them sleep together. It came out when this little girl went to a doctor and the doctor asked her questions.

North Carolina Televangelist Indicted On Charges Of Tax Crimes!!

Image
Reader good Saturday morning to everyone, I 'm praying everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

A North Carolina televangelist Todd Coontz – author of numerous books on faith and finances – has been indicted on charges of tax fraud spanning more than a decade. "As a minister, Coontz preached about receiving and managing wealth, yet he failed to keep his own finances in order," Jill Westmoreland Rose, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, said as she announced the charges."

Coontz will now receive a first-hand lesson in 'rendering unto Caesar' that which is due." The charges include three counts of failure to pay tax, each carrying a maximum federal prison term of one year, and four counts of aiding and assisting in filing false tax returns, each carrying a maximum term of three years. Coontz, 50, is described on his website as a "pastor, evangelist,…

Reader a mom and dad from Alabama were arrested after allegedly taking their infant daughter to party at an Indiana bar -- as witnesses said the mother drank and smoked while breastfeeding her child.

Shout Out To Pastor Matt Chandler Who Is Socially Conscious And Compassionate!

Image
Reader as of today to my understanding and knowledge Megachurch Pastor/teacher Matt Chandler is the only white evangelical that has had the nerve to speak out publicly about the injustice that took place in the Philando Castile case. I appreciate that some white pastors are at least trying to acknowledge and address the issues of racism in this country even if it's through social media. This is the way to bridge the gap.

Pastor Matt Chandler is a pastor who for many years has been very vocal about White Privilege and how Whites are having a hard time with the concept. I love how he understands that pressing into this is one of the keys to engaging the culture for Christ.

Pastor Matt is the pastor of The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, amid intense debate over a jury’s decision to acquit the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile last July. The popular megachurch pastor has weighed in on the matter with a pointed tweet expressing his shock, which angered s…

Henry Lyons, former head of the largest Black Baptist Organization, accused of fraud Again.  Church leaders have accused 75-year-old Henry Lyons of misappropriating funds for his personal benefit, and voted last Thursday evening to remove him as pastor, ending what had once looked like a story of personal redemption. In the 1990s, before fraud prosecutions took him down, Rev. Henry Lyons enjoyed some what of a prestige and favor life with presidents and leaders throughout the land.

Former COGIC Bishop Carlton Pearson Will Take On A Very Sensitive Topic, LIVE On Social Media!

Image
Reader formerCOGIC Bishop Carlton Pearson, who's fresh off a week of birthday celebration with Megachurch Pastor T.D.Jakes......has a very interesting and some what controversial upcoming live discussion. Bishop Pearson is planning to talk live this coming Thursday night, June 22, from 8 to 9PM CST:  

Does the God you worship create, sponsor and support eternal torment in a customized torture chamber called hell where literally billions of people created in his image and likeness, will spend eternity weeping, wailing and gnashing their teeth, (if they have any, which they may not have if they lived 100 years ago or earlier)?

And if you do worship that god, are you absolutely convinced that "he" loves you with a love from which nothing can separate you, as scripture declares in the book of Romans? And if you consider yourself "saved" both by and from that God or his wrathful love, do you also feel "safe" with him? Just asking! Stay tuned for more to com…

Church Announcement: Jesus Conference 2017??

Image
Reader a new encounter Jesus movement is being born (check out some of the names on the flyer) according to social media and the many of it followers.....this will be a movement that will sweep through the land one day:

**If you don't attend the Jesus Conference 2017 in Orlando at the end of September....you are missing a HUGE open door of growth that God has opened for you!!!
**Trust me on this!! The tickets will sell out early like they do every year. The time is now!!
**Do not chase the "man", chase the presence that shows up there!!

This holds deepest well of His living water that I have ever accessed!!! All the speakers spend at least an hour of deep soaking with Jesus everyday in the secret place. The fruit of it shows up every year at The Jesus Conference~ Facebook.

I don't mean to be rude but I think that for the majority, real change comes from encountering Jesus many times. Not just one offs. But much as any relationship, hanging around Jesus is what we s…

Savannah Pastor Sentenced For Using Tithes To Buy Leather Goods, Lingerie.

http://www.11alive.com/news/local/savannah-pastor-sentenced-for-using-thithes-to-buy-leather-goods-lingerie/450424654


Can someone explain the difference between a pastor who "steals tithes" & a pastor who blows the church money on dumb stuff? A south Georgia pastor will spend more than two years in prison after prosecutors said he stole donations from his own church and pocketed them for six years. In my opinion, all he had to do was be open and honest with the congregation and tell them "the spirit moved me to go to Victoria Secrets, Amen?!" Not really sure what makes this man worse other than not being openly honest with his followers.

Church Leaders Are Trying To Block Charisse Gibert From Collecting On Her Late Husband's $2 Million Life-insurance Policy.

Image
Reader good Monday morning to everyone, I 'm praying that everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

With the February death of Bishop Gibert four months ago has left his wife Charisse Gibert fighting Detroit World Outreach over house and control of church’s future.

“When a pastor dies, some people in a congregation don’t know how a church is going to go on, so they find a new spiritual home or go looking at other churches,” Wilder said. The drop in membership has turned the mansion from a symbol of prosperity into a millstone. The church spends $380,000 a year on mortgage and maintenance costs. Detroit World Outreach can no longer afford the expense because church revenue has fallen by approximately $2 million since 2010 “and our weekly attendance has dropped significantly,” Wilder wrote in a court filing. “Selling the property would cut the debt of the church by close to 50 percent,” Wilder wrote.

Question: Can a person's name be in the book of life, and then be blotted out?

Image
Reader God keeps good records. He knows His own, and He has set the names of His children permanently in His book. Many struggle with this issue because of what they have been taught in churches and denominations, but believers must search out the scriptures for themselves. God keeps good records. I believe the names in the ‘Lamb’s Book of Life’ were written before the foundation of the world by the finger of God! No further names are either added or deleted in time! And because in a sense those names are written with the very blood of Jesus, THEY CAN NEVER BE BLOTTED OUT!

Church Mess: Mikko Dooley vs Juanita Bynum & The Beehive!!

Image
Reader so Prophetess Juanita Bynum and the beehive crew is cutting up on social media and it's going viral. It's seemingly that Juanita is being accused of taking book order monies and not shipping books and the abused of her assignment.   Let me say this first, for the religious people who ignorantly keep following Juanita Bynum you should get woke up by the video below that you are about to see.



This is heart breaking but true.. I do believe Juanita started out on the right path and allowed money fame and desperation to overtake her... this is what happens when you struggle and fight your way to the top without receiving therapy counseling wise teaching and healing. have followed Juanita Bynum for years!

Like the author that is linked in the post, I too have always loved Juanita because of her powerful message, I came to know her in the early 90s, as well.  The first time I believe that I heard her she was preaching for Bishop TD Jakes, she was preaching I believe at the woma…

Reader good Saturday morning to everyone, I 'm praying that everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 
Here's a great Father's day message from Dr. Tony Evans for all kingdom men.

Fathers shoulder a hefty responsibility. Their families depend on them for protection, provision, love, and affection. Perhaps the greatest responsibility a father faces is the guiding of his family toward their heavenly Father. Using the theory in the garden of Eden, Dr.Tony Evans shares with us that when a man hides from his responsibility, he not only lets his family down, but the Father above is compelled to call out to him and ask, “Adam, where are you?”
