Day of reckoning

https://youtu.be/YgWYdLyxzME

Vengeance is mine saith the Lord I will repay. Despite all the warnings over the past seven years, no member of our pastoral leadership has come forward to repent publicly for the wickedness in the midst of our church. Christ is the head of his church. The church is his (Colossians1:18). He will clean house, since we will not. We must search our hearts and see where we are guilty of covering the wicked deeds in our midst, instead of repenting. We have grieved the heart of our Savior. We have misrepresented him to a lost and dying world. We have beaten his servants. We have heaped to ourselves riches that testify against us. We have defrauded the least among us. We should be in mourning, and justify ourselves no more. The day of vengence is come.

But God said: “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15). “Thus saith the Lord, let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 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 9:23-24). “For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the Lord: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered” (Jeremiah 10:21). “And the Lord saith, because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; but have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them” (Jeremiah 9:13-14).

A Time to Rise Up

The floodgates have opened and the allegations are pouring in. The silence is finally being broken by those who have chosen to challenge our leadership here at Calvary Temple, which has so callously disregarded the pain that it has caused individuals and their families. However, it is not a time to sit back and let others speak out. It is time for each person who has experienced the evil of Calvary Temple’s leadership, whether personally or through loved ones, to take a stand against the evil that has gone on far too long. Don’t bury your head in the sand and hope that when you pull it out everything will be better. It is time to leave this corrupt place.

God says, “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” (Psalm 94:16).

Hidden Deeds

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdJ8kJf-ygg&index=56&list=PL0LPMtuobLNmp-pHuDOxmDZheaCEZeFNp

No panel discussion, no discrediting of our accusers, no amount of money can stop this onslaught of allegations. Either these things were done in our midst, or there are a whole lot of bored peopled sitting at home with nothing to do but make up stories and bring accusations against us and our leadership.

But God says, “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open” (Luke 8:17). “If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth” (1 John 1:6). “But we [must] renounce disgraceful, underhanded ways. We [must] refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we [must] commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God” (2 Corinthians 4:2)

How Much is Enough?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGI8VSjqf7k

Pastor has been teaching us about tithing. His version states that it is unbiblical for the “priests” (him) to allow any of the tithe to be used for anything other than their own personal use (such as cars, motorcycles, artwork, jewelry, vacations, but no Starbucks of course). He says using it to maintain the church buildings, “discipleship training”, or missions angers God and shows the people (the congregation, the tithers, the givers) are not honoring God with their giving.

A little math. Suppose there are 150 tithers in this congregation. Suppose the average salary works out to $65,000 per year (some make far less and some make far more). This works out to nearly 10 million each year in income. 10% tithe alone brings in nearly 1 million each year for the “priest(s)” EACH YEAR. And Pastor says out of the goodness of his heart – his EXTREME generosity – that he is enduring the rebuke of God by giving some back into the ministry.

Other than the pastor’s own personal use, he says the tithe is also for the retirement fund of the “priesthood”. If these same numbers were consistent for the past 20 years – that’s now 20 million dollars in the pocket of the pastors, and he says it has been invested and multiplied. I don’t know about you, but I could do just fine with one or two million. Pastor, I ask you the question you have asked us: How much is enough?

Get ready – he wants more.

But God says, “This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein” (John 12:6). “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (1 Timothy 6:10). “But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money” (Acts 8:20). “And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts:for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God” (Luke 16:14-15). “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock” (1 Peter 5:2-3).

Train Up A Child…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yZEthbVpjY&feature=youtu.be

…in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart. A tutorial on our “way” of training. So if we have a rather strong willed kid in our midst, they are repeatedly ridiculed, punished, threatened, and finally put out of our church. Love, as real Christians define it, never enters in (Galatians 6:1, Ephesians 6:4). The worst case scenario is being “put away”. Pastor has put away children as young as nine years old. From handing them over to unsaved relatives at a moment’s notice to dropping them off at a bus stop late at night to turning them out in the streets with no money/phone/relatives to go to. Pastor (oh so carefully) chooses the most effective discipline to “break the will” of our kids. Each judgment is tailored (ahem, Spirit-led) to cause the most psychological/emotional harm plus physical discomfort. This, he knows, will produce a traumatized and willingly submissive kid crawling back on hands and knees to be “forgiven and restored”. His methods of training are destructive and dangerous. His success rate depends on the parents resolve to go along with his charade. Some parents delight in cruelty (Ephesians 6:4), others beg for leniency. And if the parents are well-connected (i.e. deacon, friend/relative of pastor, etc.) they will get their strong-willed kid back relatively unharmed. However, the list of abandoned kids has gotten pretty long over the years. But don’t you know? Vampires are not human and wolves in sheep’s clothing are not sheep. Wolves and sheep do not think alike. One wants to eat you, the other wants to graze on grass.

But God says, “And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage…But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews” (Galatians 2:4,14). “For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face” (2 Corinthians 11:20). “I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars…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 stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth” (Revelation 2:2, 14-16).

Construction of a Deathstarr

God promised judgment would first begin with us – His Church. So how did our pastor, our very own deathstarr, get to operate in a church purported to be a Bible-believing faction of truth? How did a man with a sordid, deceitful record as youth pastor in California, end up squirreled away in a place as far as the east coast is from the west coast? By creeping. Yes, just plain old stealthy, secretive creeping (2 Timothy 3). And the complicit silence of his own family and the few associate pastors he let in on the secret. But as the undiscovered menace gnawed away – he became more determined to silence any and all who would seek to reveal its deadly ray. Hence, the catastrophic destruction leveled at individuals who refuse to submit to his divine decrees.

But God says, “But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death” (Proverbs 8:36). “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God” (1 Peter 4:17).
