Joel’s Tithe And Abuse of Authority Thursday, Dec 10 2009 

I PRAY THAT YOUR DEDICATION IS NOT TO THE COERCION TACTICS OF MAN BUT TO SOLA SCRIPTURA  AND ITS AUTHOR!!

 

Joel's Version Of Jesus Has Once Again Congratulated Him On Perverting The Scriptures And Coercing Christians Out Of Their Money!

 

  BEFORE YOU OVER-BLESS YOUR FAMILY, BLESS MINE….

  Well, it’s that time of the year again at Bethany. The time when people start focusing on blessing their children with gifts, spending extra on big Family Meals, traveling in and out of state for re-unions, donating to charities, and for the unfortunate paying those high utitily heating bills. The Stockstills, Joel in particular, has presented another sermon on tithing just in case folks dare not bless his family more and before they start re-directing their 10%. See Here, “The Test”, Joel Stockstill’s Sermon

DON’T QUESTION ME ABOUT YOUR TITHES….

WE ALL REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU QUESTION JOEL RIGHT? REMEMBER HIS BRAGGING ABOUT A BEATING DOWN SOMEONE IN CHURCH! SO....TAKE HIS ADVICE LITERALLY, DON'T QUESTION HIM! https://225br.wordpress.com/joel-almost-beatdown-during-service/

One of the most disturbing points of  Joel’s sermon comes at the minute marks (14:28-15:22) where He instructs the Tithers to give without holding ministers accountable?! You will not find a Church with intergrity who will agree with that! That is a red flag that your money is being misappropriated and abused for personal-enrichment. Any NON-PROFIT Organization(churches, charities, hospitals, etc.) will and DOES PROVIDE their donors with:

  1. HOW MUCH WAS COLLECTED
  2. HOW THE DONATIONS WERE DISTRIBUTED
  3. THE COST SPENT ON TRIPS,  DINNERS, PLANE TRIPS, HOTELS
  4. PASTORS’ SALARIES
  5. UTILITIES

 

Our historical civil-rights churches practice this type of honesty and  not the DOUBLE-STANDARD that Joel’s predominately Black Congregation submits to.  Joel’s only defense, which he provides no biblcal reference for, is that

“(14:10-14:47)…THE LEADERSHIP OF THE CHURCH WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNTING TO GOD FOR THEIR STEWARDSHIP.”

 

 

 ***WARNING****AGAIN, TAKE JOEL’S COMMANDMENT NOT TO QUESTION HIM LITERALLY. HE ALREADY BRAGGED ABOUT HAVING BIG MIKE BEAT DOWN A BROTHER IN CHURCH(CLICK HERE). IF YOU’RE NEW, YOU MUST REALIZE THE CONGREGATION SEES HIM AS A BIBLICAL PROPHET WHO IS NOT TO BE QUESTIONED OR APPROACHED WITH CONCERNS. *******WARNING**********

 

 

JUST TRUST ME, I HAVE MANY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS:

He goes on to give his just-trust-me promise that he stays up at night trying be honest in his spending. IF HE WAS THAT WORRIED, WHY NOT SIMPLY(like other churches) PRODUCE A BREAKDOWN AS NOTED ABOVE(1.-5).  I remember attending the HEALING PLACE Church near Blue Bayou and in the main entrance they had A FULL COLORED BROCHURE ON ALL THEIR COLLECTIONS AND A PIE CHART on how it was distributed.

They don’t oppress AND dominate their congregation with “Do As I Say Without Holding Me Accountable“. In their honesty, they publicly published their total financial contributions and distributions. The shocking thing, it was not isolated for MEMBERS ONLY, it was in the main entrance FOR ANYONE TO READ and even had a way to contact someone if you had CONCERNS!!  In contrast Joel States:

 

Joel, God's Untouchable Prophet??!!

“But whether or not THE MONEY IS FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET OR NOT, should have nothing to do with our willingness to be obedient to the commandment of God(15:11-15:22)

 

A GOOD STEWARD DOESN’T INVEST BLINDLY:

WOW….Joel told his congregation whether he chooses to flush the money “…DOWN THE TOILET OR NOT” should not prevent them from obeying God’s commandments on giving him 10% of their paychecks. Ironically, that’s just what’s happending to their money! Joel says they SHOULD OBEY God’s commandments BUT he has another standard. Why doesn’t Joel let the congregation be accountable to God like he does?

Joel has contradicted his own sermon in a mere 15 minutes. He used the Bible to coerce 10%  out of the majority black congregation but THEN ABANDON’S THE BIBLE AND CLAIMS HE’S NOT ACCOUNTABLE TO THEM, ONLY GOD!!!  Since Joel knows that to be untrue he can not find a Scripture to back up his Give-Blindly commandment. So, he tells a  tale about correcting someone for challenging their preacher.

Obviously, this is a TOTAL CONTRADICTION IN BEING A GOOD STEWARD. A Good Steward knows how his donations are being used and ensure that He/She is not contributing to a deliquency. THERE’S THAT DOUBLE-STANDARD AGAIN,  Do as I say…..not as I do! If God sees us contributing to a ministry that claims to be UNTOUCHABLE PROPHETS and are abusing donations, that’s a TOTAL CONTRADICTION in good stewardship. Joel make up your mind…be a good steward or not? If we are called to be good stewards, your give-blindly sermon shows the congregations needs to stop!!

 

THE TITHER ENJOYS PART OF THAT TITHE GIVEN

Joel’s sermon from the start heads in the wrong direction because he re-defined the biblical word.  The tithe was NEVER MONEY but produce for the Levitcal Priesthood’s sacrificial system where these offereings were enjoyed by the tither, his family, the orphan, and God. It should be noted the biblical definition of “giving to God” was SENDING THE TITHE/OFFERING/SACRIFICE UP IN SMOKE VIA FIRE. That’s right….it was consumed as an aroma into the heavens. It was the crooked Priests who kept the tithe for themselves instead of consuming it with fire to God. So Joel if you want to use bible-words then ensure you use bible-definitions. The words alone are just the SKIN OF TRUTH that Joel FILLS WITH LIES.

 

  14:22 You must be certain to tithe28 all the produce of your seed that comes from the field year after year.

 14:23 In the presence of the Lord your God YOU MUST EAT FROM THE TITHE of your grain, your new wine,29 your olive oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the place he chooses to locate his name, so that you may learn to revere the Lord your God always.

14:24 When he30 blesses you, if the31 place where he chooses to locate his name is distant, 14:25 you may convert the tithe into money, secure the money,32 and travel to the place the Lord your God chooses for himself.

14:26 ThenYOU MAY SPEND THE MONEY HOWEVER YOU WISH for cattle, sheep, wine, beer, or whatever you desire. YOU AND YOUR HOUSEHOLD MAY EAT THERE in the presence of the Lord your God and enjoy it.

 14:27 As for the Levites in your villages, you must not ignore them, for they have no allotment or inheritance along with you. 14:28 At the end of every three years you must bring all the tithe of your produce, in that very year, and you must store it up in your villages.

14:29 Then the Levites (because they have no allotment or inheritance with you), the resident foreigners, the orphans, and the widows of your villages may come and eat their fill so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work you do.

 28 28 tn The Hebrew text uses the infinitive absolute for emphasis, indicated in the translation by the words “be certain.” 29 29 tn This refers to wine in the early stages of fermentation. In its later stages it becomes wine (יַיִן, yayin) in its mature sense. 30 30 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” See note on “He” in 14:2. 31 31 tn The Hebrew text includes “way is so far from you that you are unable to carry it because the.” These words have not been included in the translation for stylistic reasons, because they are redundant. 32 32 tn Heb “bind the silver in your hand.” Biblical Studies Press. (2006; 2006). The NET Bible First Edition; Bible. English. NET Bible.; The NET Bible (Dt 14:22-29). Biblical Studies Press.

So, we see from Scripture that the produce of the land NOT MONEY was to STORED UP. It was to help the Temple Priesthood in their daily blood sacrifices and burnt offerings….of which the tither also got to consume with his family, along with the orphans and widows. THEIR TITHES WERE NOT GIVEN SOLEY TO THE PRIESTHOOD BUT (((((((SHARED))))))) AND (((((((CONSUMED))))))). God did not allow the priest to convert the TITHES into MONEY! That defeats the whole purpose of the Communion meals! Only Joel wants money handed over without accountability!

Even the Apostle Paul identifies those who participate in the consumption of the Promised Land Produce at the Levitical Altar:

10:18 Look at the people of Israel.12 Are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar?

12 12 tn Grk “Israel according to (the) flesh.”

 Biblical Studies Press. (2006; 2006). The NET Bible First Edition; Bible. English. NET Bible.; The NET Bible (1 Co 10:18). Biblical Studies Press.

 

 

JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER IS NOT YOUR EXAMPLE(APPEALING TO HUMAN GREED):

Joel then goes on to  tesify that John B. Rockefeller:

11:08-11:12 MINUTES Joel testified that John B. Rockefeller “said he began by tithing on a $1.50 a week”.

First, John Rockefeller is not our example. Even so, John Rockefeller would  not  invest bad/blind investments. He was a very good researcher. In the days of John Rockefeller, churches made known their collections and distributions. Do you really think John Rockefeller would give to A CHURCH that condemned the congregation for holding their clergy’s stewardship accountable?! Regardless, John Rockefeller is not our example, this is simply an appeal-to-emotion(human greed for money) and not Scripture.

The reason why the naive are laughing and saying their Amens! is because Joel throws in comedy at the right moment, i.e., before anyone thinks about the shocking statement he just made. It’s the same way trainers dominate their animals. If the trainer gives a stern commandment to the animal it will bite back. However, if he creates a diversion of the mind at just the right moment, the animal will forget and submit to instruction. That’s just how Joel treats his congregation. Before they can think about his unbiblical traditions, he cracks a joke and the AMENS and HALLELUJAHS come out the naive congregation who is seeking entertainment over education.

 

P.S. JOEL, Abraham didn’t tithe his OWN PROPERTY, he ONLY tithed spoils from war ONE TIME not weekly or monthly or annually.

Bethany’s Encounter Pt.1(Forget The Sabbath) Thursday, Dec 18 2008 

Peace and Grace to you in the name of Christ Jesus

     How many of you have attended Bethany’s Enounter and were led to take upon your self the vows of the ten commandments? I did and I’m still repenting for being led astray to their editing of God’s Law. A red flag and alarm bells went off in my mind when we approached the FOURTH COMMANDMENT :

 

 8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.(Ex.20:8)

 

    

     However, when the “cell leaders” quoted the Sabbath Commandment it was like this:

 

“Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy…. If you can’t give just one day to God something is wrong. So every Sun-day[1st. Day] you need to be in church giving praise to God”.

 

shabbat1

    

     Next we responded by saying the Amens, blessings, and curses found at Deuteronomy 27 -28. Deuteronomy 28:15 says that if we go astray from the laws of ADONAI we will be placed under a curse. It’s also ironic that Bethany in original Hebrew means (House of Misery/Poverty).

 

The problem: BETHANY WORLD PRAYER CENTER changed the fourth commandment to say we will honor the 1st. Day and set it apart as a Holy Convocation  and completely abandon the day ADONAI told us to keep AND TO WHICH WE VOWED TO KEEP. The word keep in the original language, shamar, literally means to KEEP AS IN PROTECT.  ADONAI instructed those who accepted these vows to PROMISE that we would PROTECT (DT.5:12) THIS DAY AS HOLY (EX.20:8). Those who changed ADONAI’S laws and appointed time(s) have violated this covenant and we know what the wages of sin is, death. This is the longest of the ten commandments yet the Stockstills are so bold that they don’t even have the decency to keep it as a whole sentence and render it a fragment.

 

     ADONAI warns us further about mankind editing his laws as noted at Dt.4:2

 

     You shall not add  to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

 

     Christ backs up his Father about editing The Laws of God, MT.5:17-19:

 

5:17
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

 

 

 

 

 

5:18
I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

 

 

 

 

 

5:19
Anyone who LOOSENS one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Christ’s instructions shows him to be the TRUE CHRIST and NOT THE ANTI-CHRIST, AMEN!! The Prophet Daniel warns us about the Anti-Christ and his regard for ADONAI’S Laws.  Prophet Daniel states his role in the last days,i.e., the Anti-Christ will seek to change God’s Laws and appointed times.

“He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time. DAN.7:25)”

 

With all of these warnings about changing ADONAI’S laws, taking upon ourselves the blessings/curses with the AMENS, and changing GOD’s times and Laws, What do we deserve if we continue in this way? I’ll tell you………….. IT’S A HOUSE OF MISERY(BETHANY).

False Prophet Kim Clement Wednesday, Nov 26 2008 

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord(Jer.23:16).

 

“This is what the Lord says– your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners(Is.44:24-25)

 

     Well, now it makes sense why The Stockstill’s at Bethany are so pro-bush! They submit to the prophecies of TBN false prophet, Kim Clement. Kim Clement constantly receives prophecies from God about how a godly man George W. Bush is and how he’s such a prayer warrior.

 

Like Joel and Larry Stockstill, Kim Clement claims to be a biblical prophet. Their prophecies have a 50/50 chance of being fulfilled. The more vague it is, the more probable.

Like Joel and Larry Stockstill, Kim Clement claims to be a biblical prophet. Their prophecies have a 50/50 chance of being fulfilled. The more vague it is, the more probable.

 

 

     I can say false because a prohet who claims to speak on behalf of The Almighty God can not be 50% correct, he must be 100% correct. Why? Because it’s real easy to be correct half of the time and amaze the simple minded. It’s not their correct hypothesis we should hold to but their failed prophecies. Unfortunately, Bethany constantly brings up this False Prophet as a resource and the Stockstill’s words are identical to Kim Clement’s words. Let’s look at one of Kim Clement’s obvious failed prophecy concerning Bush; link also provided for reference:

Tribute to President George W. Bush 
Nov 2, 2004

In honor of President George W. Bush, posted below are a few words of prophetic significance given by Kim, regarding his destiny to lead our Nation. On October 12, 2004 Kim was privileged to personally minister a word to President George W. Bush in Paradise Valley, AZ.
 

October 24, 2004- Humble, TX
“The Spirit of God has announced that, you have looked at candidates for the next four years. I have looked at a man after my own that will pray. I am looking and have searched for a man who would pray in the house called White, and I have found that man. He shall pray. He shall pray sturdily, powerfully, until the year 2006…and a great storm shall rise upon America. But because of the prayers of George W. Bush, I will save this country from a damage and a destruction upon your economy and upon your children.

Yes, you may look at this prophet and say, what would he know about American politics? But I have taken the mantle that rested upon Ronald Reagan in the heart and have placed it upon this man—President Bush. For what purpose? To bring again honor and dignity to the office of the President of the United States of America.

Nations shall come one by one and they will say, we were mistaken. France! France…who once buried the dead of American soldiers because they fought for you. You will repent for what you have done secretly. Three things shall be exposed because of transactions that took place in France and two other nations. And they shall be repentant. And your allies will increase. Four of your enemies shall become allies, and in the Middle East I will raise up honor because of what this Nation has done. Rejoice, for I am raising up laughter and joy upon your Nation.

A record has been broken. A President has broken a record. I see headlines. Impossible! Nothing, nothing, nothing is impossible.

And they are going to say it’s impossible because of what happened in this election and what happened with the President that broke a record. Listen to me. Nothing is impossible to those that believe.”

 

     George W. Bush is a man after God’s own??!! The economy ((((DID collapsed))))), gasoline rose to an all time high, 401k retirement plans lossed thousands of dollars,thousands of jobs were lost, and the United States received a devasting attack by Muslim extremist/terrorists. If this was the result of a George W. Bush’s praying I don’t want him praying for me and my house. What really got me was the “HOUSE OF WHITE”. Uh…that’s about right!

     This prophet claims that God’s mantle was on George W. Bush, “For what purpose? To bring again honor and dignity to the office of the President of the United States of America.” U.S.A. has lost much honor and dignity in the eyes of the world. George W. Bush has made the office of Presidency a joke in the eyes of America’s citizens. Has George W. Bush really fulfilled the false prophet’s purpose because God has exposed this “christian” as a fraud.

     “Nations shall come one by one and they will say, we were mistaken.” and “they shall be repentant“!!?? O.K., Kim Clement needs to test the Spirit(s) that he consults in divination because  the  U.S.A. has received several rebukes not other countries submitting to us in repentance.

 

     Even the black republican & Christian Armstrong Williams commented:

 

Armstrong Williams, an African American conservative and talk radio host who is not an Obamacon but said he might become one: “I’m not going to just blindly go to the polls and vote for someone because they’re a Republican anymore. I wouldn’t have given two cents of thought to this in the past, but fortunately I’m maturing and fortunately for the first time in my life I could vote for a Democrat for president.” Williams refuses to base his vote on race, “however the stain of America is race, human slavery and de jure segregation and no one can ignore the fact that since the founding of this country, only white men have occupied the White House.”

 

    That’s good to hear because I remember living up North and constantly hearing Armstrong’s radio show and how be chastised other minorities for going against the the republicans which he saw as Christian. I agree we can not ignore the facts. In particular, we can not ignore the past 8years and claim George W. Bush is a man after God’s own.

 

One can go on and on about this false prophet who sways toward whoever is in power!! In contradiction to Bush being a man of prayer and a man after God’s own and God will save America BECAUSE OF  the prayers’ of Bush NOW SAYS:

 

 I will bring you out of what they call a recession into your highest economy that you’ve ever had in your next four years, says the Spirit of God.

 

Now remember, during Bush’s reign as Presidency he was supposed to care of America through the power of prayer. But now Kim Clement wants to hop on the Obama band-wagon. I pray that Barack won’t fall for Kim’s tricks and consult his divinations. President Barack(Blessed) please use discernment. It’s a little interesting though despite all the signs and symptoms Kim Clement like Bush fails to call it a recession and maintains “…what THEY CALL a recession….”. It is what it is.

However, He still holds in “prophecy” that Bush will be vindicated by God. It’s not the media it’s the economy that testifies against George W. Bush!! Kim states in his prophecy:

 

Your present President will not leave his office or his term in shame.  There will be a very precise vindication  of numerous things that were scorned, that were mocked by men that thought they knew but understood nothing.  And when the baton is handed over, God said there shall be no fear in the nation.  Now take that and be secure. 

 

 

Kim Clement is a trip. He’s definitely playing both sides of the fence. Kim Clement cites an article where uranium was removed secretely from Iraq as proof that Bush is vindicating for entering Iraq. The problems that arise with this:

 

  1. We’re suppose to be hunting for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan NOT IRAQ
  2. The terrorist responsible for 911 are Al-Queda NOT Iraq’s President
  3. The uranium of Iraq was NOT weapons grade
  4. According to the International Courts, the uranium was legal to possess(however Bush went against them and started his war)

 

And speaking of the war Bush claimed about two years ago the war was a success AND OVER.  Yet go and research as to how many of our children have died since then. Kim Clement’s ‘prophecies” are so broad. There is even one where he attempts to explain away because it never came to pass.  So he says well it could mean this or it could mean that, LOL. and the sheep continue to get fleeced. The ones that do come to pass are so obvious a blind man could have seen these events coming.

 

    In repsonse to the crashing economy, he now claims God told him it’s only for a short time. This is in total contradiction to Bush’s prayers and a Man after God’s own.  The economy with the 2nd. election of George Bush was supposed to great and bring HONOR. This dude is a clown!! Link below to see his revision of prophecy….

 

Dear Warriors,

    I would like to take a moment to encourage you in regards to the present economic crisis.

 

Be careful my people

Claiming The Victory Precociously(Pt.2) Thursday, Jun 5 2008 

GREETINGS AND PEACE IN THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS OUR SAVIOUR IN WHOM WE FIND ATONEMENT AND SALVATION UNTO THE FATHER!

     In the first article, Claim The Victory Precociously (Pt.1), it was obvious of the dangerous yoke that Larry Stockstill has placed himself with (the false prophets of T.B.N.) and the results of trying to pray to a righteous GOD. May Amy’s soul (r)est (i)n (p)eace!

     Now we will look at another crisis of Larry’s kingdom. Larry Stockstill is an Overseer for New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This church and it’s Overseer has been an embarassing testimony to the world at large.

     Ted Haggard ,who was the Pastor of New Life Church AND President of National Association of Evangelicals , confessed to DRUG ABUSE but fell short to admitting HOMOSEXUAL ACTS.  According to research from MSNBC, Haggard actually founded New Life Church in the 1980’s and was ousted by a body of overseerswhich Haggard also founded(CNN video 2:40; Rev. Haggard Fired). Eventhough Ted Haggard denied any homosexual activity, Larry Stockstill’s letter to the congregation stated:

 

“Our investigation and Pastor Haggard’s public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct(Associated Press, MSNBC, Nov.5,2006 article)”

 

     In a CNN transcript Larry Stockstill shows how zealous his investigation is in it’s search,

 

“LARRY STOCKSTILL, NEW LIFE CHURCH: The fact is, I am guilty of sexual immorality, and I take responsibility for the entire problem. I am a deceiver and a liar.

CALLEBS: Haggard has denied having a gay affair, but Stockstill has his doubts about Haggard’s sexual behavior.

STOCKSTILL: He had developed a pattern of deception, and that is why it took us so long to really arrive at the truth. We still haven’t. We know that’s going to take a period of time.”

 

     Now that the reader is familiar with the first crisis with New Life Church we can move on to Larry’s next obvious step, praying to GOD.

 “The vote on Brady Boyd at New Life Church in Colorado is tonight and hopefully the members confirm him as the new Senior Pastor! It has been almost 10 months I have been working in that situation and the finish line is tonight!”(Posted at www.larrystockstill.com entitled ‘Lexington’; August 27, 2007)

 

“As the church prepares to hear Brady speak three Sundays and then vote on his confirmation as pastor, the Lord gave me the passage….(New Life and My Kids, August 08, 2007)”

 

“To God be the glory! Last Sunday, we were able to pray over the new pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs. It has been 11 trips there over the last 10 months in order to keep the church healthy and strong.(Posted on Sept.14, 2007 at WWW.LARRYSTOCKSTILL.COM; Entitled “New Life and My Life

 

     Now let’s note the bold phrases and then see the results of Larry’s praying “…over the new pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs.”.  According to Reuters News Agency (Sunday December 09, 2007, 6:04p.m. Est.):

“Police said a gunman opened fire outside the New Life Church in Colorado Springs after Sunday services and that three to five people had been taken to local hospitals.”.

 

     Christians should be very careful of who PRAYS OVER them. Larry Stockstill constantly writes and claims he hears from GOD and was given verses from GOD, yet what he claims and what WE SEE contradicts each other.  After all of those months of praying and visiting and receiving from GOD does he not recognize GOD’s many answers of rebuke?!! As the Scripture says:

 

  • The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous(Prov.15:29).
