Melissa Stockstill, European Royalty Thursday, Mar 12 2009 

GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS OUR ONLY EXAMPLE AND SAVIOR

 

     I’m continued to be amazed at what the Stockstill’s get away with and how their lifestyles compare with those of their congregation. It’s clear why Larry Stockstill continues to advertise his Prosperity Gospel book, The Laws of Increase and claim that 2Sam.24:24 is about Capital Campaign which shows his members should give “over and beyond” their means.

Melissa Stockstill is another child of Larry Stockstill who the poor black congregation of Baker has put through college with their tithes/offerings. Melissa Stockstill showed up in December with so called “Royalty from London” to play a duet of Harps(CLICK HERE). On the video Melissa Stockstill informs the interviewer that she:

  1. Started Playing The Harp At Four Years Old(what were you doing in the hood at four years old?)
  2. Was Taught By An L.S.U. Teacher
  3. When asked If She Travels Often, “Yes, I do”(Didn’t Larry Stockstill instruct via his 20/20 vision program for your families to make sacrifices. Why isn’t his family making sacrifices?)
  4. She further admits she’s traveled to London “8 to 9 times within a year and half“!!  I’ve never known any of the poor black residents of Baker to have this privilege. I’m sure this LiL Sarah Palin is thankful for your tithes/offerings/sacrifices.

 After graduating from LSU (on the backs of those who will never see college) she moved to London to attend the Royal Academy of Music.

 

Question: How many children of Baker, La. have had these oppurtunities? Has Bethany supported your college tuition and traveling fees and Royal Music Lessons overseas??!! How many of your children have been able to TOUCH much less play a PRICELESS GOLDEN HARP?(READ HERE)

 

Melissa Stockstill is never seen with any of the Black members of Bethany, Why? She’s strictly European! This “Royalty” even copyrights her images. Visit her pics on Virb.Com and you’ll see she definitely doesn’t hold to the conservative views of her father. She shows a lot of skin(click here, I couldn’t post the pic here because she actually purchased to have them coyprighted). It reminds me of Sarah Palin and her daughter.

 

After checking the demographics of Baker, Louisiana, I see why The “SOUTH CAMPUS” WAS CHOSEN AND NOT THE ONE IN BAKER, LOUISIANA. Baker was not good enough to the Stockstill’s to host this ROYAL HARPIST. They didn’t want to be embarassed by the poverty and have this Royal European see its citizens. Instead the predominately white congregation at the North Campus hosted this event. Contrast or compare these demographics OF BAKER, LA. with the easy life of the Stockstills’ children(who must be that 2.4% below)

  1. Only 2.4% get to college(That must be the Stockstill’s children)
  2. Of that 2.4% that go to college ONLY 9% get their Bachelor Degree
  3. of that 2.4% ONLY 5.8% get a graduate degree
  4. The HOUSEHOLD income was only $38,500(remember the whole house income not one parent)

Melissa Stockstill, graduate of LSU, Royal Harpist. A very privilege many Baker, Louisiana children don't have. However, if your daddy convinces his congregation they have to make sacrifices and "give over and beyond", you can travel abroad and go to the best schools on the backs of the poor.

 

It amazes me how ministers claim to be Non-profit during tax time, yet their family members enjoy personal enrichment.  Again, hey Baker Louisiana have your kids:

 

  1. Gradauted from LSU
  2. Westminster

 

Oooh, that’s right you guys have to obey Larry Stockstill and submit to his 20/20 Vision program where you’re told to do the opposite of his kids(Joel&Melissa). He tells you in 20/20 Vision to(click here for original website rules for YOU and YOUR FAMILY:

 

1. Practice priority budgeting.
 

Many families choose to rearrange their priorities and give up something in their current budgets in order to give more to a capital campaign. Priority budgeting may mean postponing a planned expenditure for such things as a new car, vacation, home remodeling, or other major expenditure. Many Christians giving to capital stewardship campaigns find the means to give through sacrificial commitments made in faith and coupled with priority budgeting.

 

(It’s interesting how he says many families choose to “give up something” while his kids travel the world and graduate from universities, shopping sprees in West Palm Beach, Music Lessons in London)

 
..2. Redirect present expenditures.
 

Often families have significant short-term expenditures for special needs that can be redirected towards the capital campaign after the short-term obligations are met. For example, a family realized that their daughters would be graduating from college during the last two years of the capital campaign, and consequently, they were able to increase their commitment by thousands of dollars in the second and third years simply by redirecting what they had been spending on their daughters’ tuition. Another example of redirecting expenditures would be committing cash flow that becomes available after a loan is repaid.

 

(DOES LARRY STOCKSTILL NOT HAVE MERCY??!!  IF ANYONE BLACK CITIZEN IS LUCKY ENOUGH TO ENTER COLLEGE, HE SUGGESTS YOU CONTINUE THOSE PAYMENTS TO HIS CAPITAL CAMPAIGN??!!)

 
..3. Increase giving with increased income.
 

Some people receive periodic increases in salary or bonuses from their employers. The temptation for many of us is to increase our lifestyle to fit the higher income. In many instances, families have decided that they will commit the full amount of salary increases to the capital campaign.

 

(DOES LARRY STOCKSTILL NOT REALIZE THESE INCREASES ARE NEEDED. IT’S NOT A “TEMPTATION” IT’S A NEED. IT’S ALSO AMAZING HOW HIS CHILDREN LIVE ROYALLY WHILE HE PLACES THESE RULES ON THE CONGREGATION)

 
..4. Give from your excess.
 

Some people have valuable possessions at their disposal. One young man decided that two of his collectors’ baseball cards worth over $20,000 would be the most appropriate means of sacrifice for his family. Other people save money over a period of years for a special project. For example, a couple had saved $80,000 to build a lake cabin. When their church entered a capital stewardship campaign, they decided the needs of the church were greater than their need for a second home.

 

(WOW, HE SAYS “OTHER PEOPLE SAVE MONEY”. UUUH, YEAH. IT’S CALLED RETIRMENT!! WHO ARE THESE MYSTERIOUS PEOPLE WHO GAVE UP THEIR LIVES FOR THE STOCKSTILL’S CHILDREN TO LIVE ROAYALLY??!!)

 
..5. Commit unexpected cash.
 

Often people pray for God to show them a way they can give beyond what they presently see or afford. Sometimes the answers come unexpectedly. A couple had been praying for weeks about their commitment to their church’s capital campaign. Much to their surprise, they received an inheritance of several thousand dollars. They gave the entire amount to their church as part of their three-year commitment, in addition to a commitment from their regular income.

 

(YOU TOOK A COUPLES INHERITANCE  IN ADDITION TO WHAT THEY WERE ALREADY GIVING??!! HOW DID YOU CONVINCE THEM? MAN, YOU COULD SELL ICE TO AN ESKIMO. I KNOW YOU HAVE A RESTAURANT AND T.V. STATION, BUT HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF SELLING USED CARS? YOU WOULD MAKE A KILLING!! I GUESS THAT’S WHY I’M NOT A TELEVANGELIST, BECAUSE MY CONSCIENCE WOULDN’T ALLOW ME TO TAKE THESE GIFTS MUCH LESS POST THESE SUGGESTIONS.  I’M SURE TEH STOCKSTILL KIDS ARE LOVING THE GIFTS, LOL)

..6. Sacrifice extra time.
 

Some family members have extra time they would be willing to use in a part-time job to enable them to give more to the church. This is particularly true for families whose children are grown and away from home and for semiretired or retired couples. In one situation, a man was in the process of retiring when his church entered a capital campaign. He and his wife secured new jobs and gave the first three years of their retirement income to the capital campaign.

 

(WOW, MOST FAMILY MEMBERS GET A SECOND JOB TO HELP OUT WITH BILLS. LARRY STOCKSTILL WANTS THAT MONEY TOO. HE EVEN WANTS THE ELDERLY WHO’S KIDS ARE GONE TO GET A PART TIME JOB AND GIVE HIM ALL THEIR INCOME, LOL, THAT’S BOLD!!)

 
..7. Donate appreciated assets.
 

Many people own stocks that are worth significantly more than the original purchase price. That is good news. The bad news is that if these stocks are sold, a significant portion of the gain will be lost to taxation. Gifts of appreciated assets typically, investment securities or real estate—can be very advantageous to both the donor and the church. By transferring ownership of the asset to the church, the donor avoids income taxes on the sale of the asset. In addition, the donor receives an income tax deduction for the full market value of the asset. That, in effect, renders the gift less costly to make.

 

(YES, THESE STOCKS ARE USUALLY PART OF A 401K RETIRMENT PLAN, GOODNESS LARRY, HAVE MERCY!!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 If Larry Stockstill wanted to truly pay off bills, he should have practiced what he preached to the people instead of sending his Melissa through college, overseas to study, and travel Europe on motorcycles OR shopping sprees in West Palm Beach while the city is helping citizens after a major hurricane!?

Oh that’s right, it’s not their job, IT’S YOUR JOB church member!! Please…continue to give over and beyond(stocks, pay raises, heirlooms, inheritance,  college tuition).

Bethany’s Holidays Vs. God’s Holy Days Thursday, Mar 12 2009 

Peace And Grace To You In The Name of Christ Jesus, Our Passover Lamb 

We’ve all seen Pastor Larry Stockstill’s constant call for integrity in the House of God and their actions contradicting. The latest you’ll see is Bethany World Prayer Center’s man made Pagan Feasts celebrations instead of God’s Holy Days.  The first and most obvious is replacing God’s Holy Day with the Roman Catholic Holiday that includes Pagan Rituals.

Now, you ask most Christians about African Paganism(Voodoo, Hoodoo, Witch Craft) and they’ll without hesitation tell you it’s wrong and unbliblical. However, when it comes to European Paganism, that double standard that appeared during the Presidential election comes back.  Pastors will tell you it’s okay to mix European Paganism with Christianity,e.g., Feast of Easter.

 

The name Easter was applied by the Roman Catholic Church onto  God’s Holy Festival of Passover. It’s amazing to see Pastors correct the Roman Catholic Church and its Pope, yet they observe the Catholic’s Holy Days(Easter Mass, Sunday Mass, Mardi Gras, Lent, Christ-Mass/Christmas, Good Friday). Let’s start with the Bible and move towards today to see how the Tradition of The Elders has abolished God’s Holy Days.

 

The Prophet Daniel gave us the agenda and Characteristics of the ANTI-CHRIST/FALSE CHRIST. The one characteristic that pertains to this article is located at Dan.7:25:

  1. He will speak words against the Most High
  2. He will harass the Holy Ones of the Most High
  3. He will try to change their Holy Festivals AND LAWS

Number-3 is what the Roman Catholic Church has done and what many churches follow,i.e., the changing of God’s set Holy Days and Laws. The first time we encountered Larry Stockstill’s authority was at your ENCOUNTER RETREAT. Remember, he isolated you from family/friends and all forms of communication with the outside? His cell leaders had everyone take on the oath to follow God’s Laws and you said amen to receive a curse if you change ANY OF THEM. Well, you wholeheartedly change the Sabbath Day to the pagan Sun’Day AND NOW Passover to the pagan feast of EASTER. Oh Bethany(House of Misery) you rightly deserve the curses. Larry Stockstill, you’re playing God and leading others astray and not back to simplicity and sincerity. THIS IS WHY CHRIST INFORMED US HE DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH HIS FATHER’S LAW AND CALLED FOR THE DEMOTION OF ANYONE WHO DID(Mt. 5:17-19).

 

The meal that Christ ate before the leaders of God’s people falsely accused him unto crucifixion was A PASSOVER MEAL.  If we are Christians(imitators of Christ) why do we not have these concerns:

 

  1. Where will you have us to eat the Passover?(Mt.26:17)
  2. I will keep the Passover AT YOUR HOUSE with MY DISCIPLES(Mt.26:18)
  3. The DISCIPLES DID AS JESUS DIRECTED, They prepared the Passover(Mt.26:19)
  4. I EARNESTLY DESIRE to eat this Passover WITH YOU(Luke 22:15)
  5. DO THIS IN REMEBRANCE OF ME(LUKE 22:19; 1COR.11:24)

 

passover

 

Instead the leaders of our time have joined themselves with man made Holidays which they have mixed with God’s Holy Days.  We have not abolished Passover but we have “changed God’s times(Dan.7:25) to Sun-Day. In the First Council of Nicea(325ad) Emperor Constantine agreed that Passover should no longer be celebrated as the disciples and Christ practiced it but that it should change to Easter. Constantine sent out a letter to “…EVERY NATION UNDER HEAVEN” to obey it. Below are some excerpts from THE SYNODAL LETTER located

 

We further proclaim to you the good news of the agreement
concerning the holy Easter, that this particular also has through your
prayers been rightly settled; so that all our brethren in the East who
formerly followed the custom of the Jews are henceforth to celebrate
the said most sacred feast of Easter AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE ROMANS
and yourselves and all those who have observed Easter from the
beginning.(The whole issue at the bottom of this letter preserved by Jesuit University of New York)

 

I encourage you to research the Roman Emperor Constantine’s Christianity. All scholars/historians, both christian and secular, will inform you that the Roman Emperor never truly converted to Christianity, he loved the idea of worshipping on Sun-Day because this is what he was doing before coming to Christ. HE WAS AN IDOL WORSHIPPER who set your Holy Days.

 

Paul wrote to the Corinthian Congregation about how they celebrated their Passover Feast with Sexual Sin. The Corinthian Church thought this was one big party like their former Idol Feasts were. After correcting them and instructing them to remove the LEAVEN from their lives HE INSTRUCTS THEM TO CELEBRATE PASSOVER!!

 

1Cor. 5:7-8 For Christ OUR PASSOVER LAMB has been sacrificed.  Therefore, LET US CELEBRATE THE FEASTIVAL….

 

Please read the whole context of 1Cor. 5:1-9. Paul instructs the Corinthians to first remove the leaven from their Congregation and celebrate because Our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. These words mirror the times when Passover was celebrated by the great men of Faith. Cross reference Paul’s letter with Ex.12:21, Ex.13:7, Dt. 16:3,. This is why the Book of Revelation is filled with visions of Christ as a Lamb. Easter and rabbits have nothing to do with Christianity. Easter is leaven mixed into God’s Passover Feasts.  Christ instructs his disciples to “do this in remembrance of me(Lk.22:26). This was not the idol Easter’s Day or the Roman Sun-Day, it was God’s Passover.

 

Ask a Christian why he celebrates Easter instead of Christ’s Passover and he’ll tell you to remember Christ’s ressurection. Christ instructed to remember HIS DEATH NOT HIS RESURRECTION.  The feast of Easter messes God’s Holy Days all up! Christ and Paul state we remember Christ’s Death not ressurection. Paul told the congregation since OUR PASSOVER LAMB WAS SACRIFICED not ressurected. Paul also states(1Cor.11:25-27), “You proclaim the Lord’s Death Till he comes”.

 

Since The Romans changed God’s times and laws. This Passover meal was relabled “the Lord’s Supper” and placed on Sunday usually the first Sun-Day of every month.  Surely, if Bethany seeks to be a role model REMNANT, they’ll abandon The Roman Catholic Pagan Feasts for God’s appointed times.
