He will be glorified Pastor Scott. You will not be. You have heaped up to yourself disciples and praises and riches. They will testify against you on that day. When the true King returns, and will condemn you. You live in wantonness. You eat and drink with the drunken. You beat your maids and men servants. You say you do all this for Him – but you blaspheme that worthy Name. Repent while there is still time. Turn from your wicked ways and live. For why will you die oh man? The Lord has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. With your mouth you draw near him – but your heart is far from him. Weep and howl pastors of Calvary Temple – or your miseries which shall come upon you. For when He calls, you would not turn. You continued to worship your leader and set him above God. Stop and consider – behold He comes quickly. To reveal the hidden things and turn the darkness to light.
The golden rule – do unto others as you do unto yourself. Would you let yourself walk into a trap? Would you let your family be destroyed by a religious conman and his paid henchmen? Of course not. Many decent guys have managed to get their families out of Calvary Temple in tact and relatively unhurt. When they saw the danger. But why silence now? Someone said, “Silence is the residue of fear.” It is definitely not golden. The only people that thrive in silence are the wicked. As long as they can silence you, their wicked deeds can go undetected. More trusting people will fall prey to their lying lips and deceitful charm. Who will speak up? Who will defend those appointed to slaughter? Who will sound a cry of alarm? Speak up.
But God says, “When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul” (Ezekiel 3:18-19). “Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears” (Acts 20:26-27,29-31). “When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah” (Psalms 32:3-5).
As our numbers dwindle (no new potential mates are recruited, fresh blood begins to stagnate and ferment) a new tactic must be employed. How to do it without actually fessing up and repenting of all the well-documented evil deeds we have committed in our church? Just become an older, kinder and gentler false teacher/prophet. Reach out to those we have known and say, “Come home. All is forgiven and forgotten. We will take care of you this time. Our cover is blown. We are having credibility issues. But those of you out there whose families we still have a hook into, we need you now. Come home.” Especially wanted: the strong, silent type. You may privately disagree with us, but publicly you are silent. Hey, we can work together. You blink at me and I will blink at you.
Who shouldn’t bother to apply for homecoming status? All who walk uprightly, speak the truth openly, and are not respecters of persons. Sorry, this is a limited edition offer.
But God says, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away:and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches:He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned” (John 15:1-6).
Abide in Jesus, not in Calvary Temple.
For years pastor and the leadership have been destroying individuals, families, and testimonies. Like his father, the Devil, pastor misleads (lies). Apparently getting away with it time and again. So why bother? Because:
1) God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked
2) The Church (Body of Christ) is to protect and defend the weak, fatherless, widow, foolish, naive.
3) The Church is to warn those committing sin. God holds us guilty if we are silent.
4) Because we are to stop evil.
For God says: “And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” (Job 1:8). “Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him. The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem. I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame. I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out. And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth” (Job 29:12-17) “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (Acts 10:38). “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children” (Ephesians 5:1). “And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled” (1 Peter 3:13-14).
When pastor no longer can rely on our silence,he resorts to threatenings (via the leadership). Veiled threats of dragging folks into court for “slander” if they reveal the facts of what goes on here. This effective tactic has muzzled many a good person who has left Calvary Temple in the past. Sounds like Saul prior to his conversion on the road to Damascus. The Pharisees’ way of control was threatenings, stoning, putting out of the synagogue. Jesus’ was of control is Love and Truth. He never threatens anyone. Ever.
But God says, “Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way” (Romans 14:13). “Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones” (Luke 17:1-2). “But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in” (Matthew 23:13). “Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the Lord” (Leviticus 19:14). “But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication” (Revelation 2:14).
Pastor and leadership, stop putting stumbling blocks in the way of people, causing them to sin.
