The Divination Of Detroit

Thank you for visiting this page and May the Lord continue to bless you in the New Year of 2008.
At the end of 2006 many ministries produced a theme for 2007 similar to this, "God will complete HIS work in you in 2007" Many also used Phil. 1:6 as a proof text for this message:
  • "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:"
Well, 2007 has come and gone and , BOY were some things completed. Some marriages, ministries, churches, gospel singers and folk just caught down right, COMPLETELY in their sins.

They were done and completed like our respective Thanksgiving Turkeys AND Christmas Hams…sliced, diced, cut open and exposed. The only problem is that many of them DON’T know how exposed their sins actually were.
  • Numbers 32:23: "But if ye will not do so, behold ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out."
In 2007 the sins of the church have been made public sport for the world to see, mock and criticize. Marriages of individuals who have engaged in national and international public ministry and have even claimed to be on the "Front Line" have been shipwrecked by way of fights, spousal abuse, police reports and some even during regular bible study gatherings as church members were told by their leaders "we’re simply going our separate ways, and we wish each other well".


In 2007, Bishops have battered their spouses and some spouses have retaliated by killing their preacher husbands. In addition of all the heterosexual problems, homosexual ministers such as
Rev. Benjamin Reynolds

Rev. Benjamin Reynolds have promoted and endorsed their homosexuality from the pulpit after years of living a life on the DL (Down Low). He left his church in Colorodo in October

V. Gene Robinson


the late Dr. Peter Gomes
.
Then there are others such as openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson who proclaims that there is another gospel that allows ministers to be homosexual and unashamed.

Yet other homosexual ministers such asthe late Dr. Peter Gomes of Harvard Divinity School have said that he wishes that he could have a debate with St. Augustine (354-430) to straighten out his (St. Augustine’s) view and perception of homosexuality which Gomes felt was the only fault in St Augustine’s historical narratives.
Bishop Blake

Yes, my fellow COGIC brethern, this is the same Dr. Peter Gomes who is an open and avid homosexual, that at one point and somehow, enchanted our beloved Presiding Bishop, Bishop Charles E. Blake , into opening up his West Angeles pulpit to him (Gomes) in repayment of Bishop Blake’s invitation to minister at Harvard University. As the song says, "How Low Can We Go?" This invitation was not a good move and has brought about much confusion and controversy within the body of Christ and pentecostalism in particular.

Now, all of this, is in addition to the fact that many of our gospel music stages have been invaded by "gay blades", sodomites, and what the bible calls "Sons of Belial". Now many of our most beloved gospel music figures live under new suspicion of homosexuality and perverted ills from which they once proudly claimed deliverance.

In 2007 materialistic oriented ministries have begun to come under judgement and a new level of scrutiny for leaving their adherents, broke, in need, and by the way side both physically and mentally. Although, the gov’t has possibly overstepped it’s bound and created an unsanctioned redundancy, the message that God will not allow HIS people to be further abused should come across loud and clear. In 2007 many ministries have stopped preaching the Gospel and calling people to repentance but now have turned unto messages of fame, wealth, social and psychological acceptance and personal empowerment.

Now many of us know the problems even more in-depth than I’ve gone into here. Amazingly enough the real problem is that too many of us have failed to learn from the apparent mistakes, excesses and sins that have been exposed in 2007.

But the Real Story...DETROIT YOU’VE BEEN DIVINED!

Juanita Bynum II
In the City of Detroit, Michigan, every Wednesday, until February 2008, at 5:00 AM… EARLY MORNINGS…BEFORE DAY BREAK… Prophetess Juanita Bynum, who has said that the "Lord has led her", is engaged in morning prayer at the Greater Grace City Of David. Under the watchful approval of Bishop Charles H. Ellis III.

In the telecasts aired on The Word Network the week of Dec. 24th 2007, Juanita told the over 2,000 participants that attend one of the early morning prayer services to do the following:  


  1. Praise the Lord intensely
  2. Wait for the anointing to come.
  3. After the anointing "arrives" call out your name in the atmosphere to attract or draw what you need in the spirit.
WHAT???
2,000 SAINTS...get up before day to hear Juanita Bynum, butcher the scripture with a TOTAL abuse of what the anointing is, teach the creation of metaphysical reality through the power of words and promote the so called "Universal Law Of Attraction"?


IN A CHURCH???

What is going on? When will we ever learn?

The "Universal Law Of Attraction" popularized in recent times by Rhonda Byrne in her New York Times best selling book "The Secret", said that the Universal Law of Attraction is the most powerful law in the universe. This concept has been reverberated by other authors including Russell Simmons in his book "Do You". Both authors claim that this law is singularly responsible for their success and the success of every "successful" person living today.

Adherents to this law state that your "energy" or "vibrational frequency" will attract others to you that have the same "energy" or "vibrational frequency", therefore bringing people into your lives that will be able to fulfill your desires, dreams and compliment your DESTINY. They propose that negative energy will draw negative energy to itself and positive energy in turn will also draw positive energy to itself. In fact many of this philosophy’s proponents go so far as to say that NOTHING happens to an individual unless it’s drawn to them by their very own "vibration" or "frequency" They even go so far to say that the Bible is in agreement with their concepts in such scriptures as
  • Psalms 23:7a-" For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:"
and
  • Mark 11:23-24- "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them"
Consequently, because the lie has been sanitized for a Christian audience, Christians have followed the apostles and disciples of the lie hook, line and sinker, not considering that what Juanita has resorted to is what the bible has called DIVINATION and witchcraft.
What happened to the WORD of God that has instructed:
  • Deut. 18:9-14- 9-"When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10-There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11-Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12-For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 13-Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. 14-For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do."
Divination is a "foretelling future events, or discovering things secret by the aid of superior beings, or other than human means." It is used in scripture of false systems of ascertaining the divine will. It has been universal in all ages, and all nations alike civilized and savage.

Divination is associated with Spiritism. IN the Bible the word "spiritist" which always appears with "witch." The root of the word in Hebrew is the verb"to know." In modern English "wizard" means someone very wise or inventive, a very clever or skillful person. But in the Bible it is always a forbidden thing, a kind of black magic. This is why most modern versions translate the word as "spiritist," "fortune-teller," or "sorcerer."

For any profit, (PROPHET yet alone PROPHETESS) to encourage individuals to pray, wait for the anointing to come, then call their name in the atmosphere in order to receive what they need; is a doctrine of devils, a seducing spirit and one UNWORTHY of the church of God.
  • I John 4:1- "1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."
  • I Timothy 4:1-2- "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;"
  • II Timothy 4:3-4 "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
Why should the church and church leaders be so interested in this? This is why:
  • Galations 1:6-9- 6- "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7-Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8-But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9-As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."
Part of the commission of the minister is to build up the faith and shore up the firm foundation of the believer:
  • Ephes. 4:14-15 "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:"
Who is guarding the hen house? The wolves?

As stated above with leaders seduced by the homosexual right and even in homosexuality themselves, we can see that some are asleep. The eccumenism and inclusion of so many things has been allowed that now even spiritism is allowed in many of our churches. Encouraging the believers is one thing, the acceptance of false doctrine and unbiblical practices and them who promote it is quite another.

To whom will be our allegiance in 2008? Have we learned the lessons of 2007, or must we repeat them until the Body Of Christ suffers more at the hands of mislead and misleading individuals?


DETROIT…You’ve been DIVINED. Will the TRUE people of God PLEASE stand up?


By the way, you may not live in Detroit but YOUR CITY could be N E X T...Lawd Help Us!!!

Blessed!

Pulpit-Pimp Gone Wild

Mr. Melvin Jones, the Pulpit Pimp Himself encourages his most faithful to "Blaspheme" and exposes his own followers to the judgements of God:

Melvin, "Da Pimp Pimp" Jones, is back at it again, causing his most faithful to continue to blaspheme by encouraging them accredit the works of God to the devil. Mr. Jones who admittedly has served and adhered to the doctrines of The Apostolic Church, The Christian Missionary Alliance Church, The Reformed Presbyterian Church, The Catholic Church, The Full Gospel Church and The Baptist Church (all in one lifetime) became disgruntled some time ago at his wife’s current pastor, Pastor John K. Jenkins, of The First Baptist Church of Glenarden because the pastor allowed Bishop T.D. Jakes to speak at his church and has subsequently established a relationship with him.

In response Melvin "Da Pimp Pimp" Jones established a web site dedicated supposedly to exposing all of them that handle the gospel fraudulently in his opinion. However the web site is actually a anti-Pentecostal site only exposing the "supposed" doctrinal errors of highly visible Pentecostal ministers and ministries.
His latest attack has been against me and the Church Of God In Christ in particular. Crediting the work and move of God to devils and encouraging his followers to do so is one of his favorite MO’s. One of his adherents wrote the following email to me full of blasphemous statements:

{Passah Burette,
First of all, you really surprise me in that you don't seem to take me seriously. You have to understand that I was an Ordained Elder and Asst. Pastor (who refused to take a church as pastor) in the COGIC. I know the "black book" from front to back. It is not a biblically based book. It is no different than the "Watchtower" of the Jehovah's Witness nor the "Book of Mormon" in the LDS. If what you believe about God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, Salvation, etc., comes out of that book, then you are doomed.
The COGIC organization is based off of a falsehood and that it that there is a "second blessing" that leads to "holiness". The bible, including the Historical Narrative Book of Acts, does not support such a thing. If you knew anything about proper biblical interpretation (Hermeneutics, Exegesis, and Exposition) you would know that it is improper to build doctrine from a historical account. You are supposed to go to the didactic portions of scripture to build doctrine. Charles Mason didn't know that and you don't know that. When we first come to Christ in repentance and faith, we get "everything that pertaineth unto life and godliness" (II Peter 1:3)! Everything Passa! We are "made complete in Christ" (Colossians 2:9-10) All this second blessing garbage is American Christianity's quest for "something more". Divine empowerment does not come from some mystical event, it comes from a changed heart and the sovereign calling or assignment of God. That's it!
I knew that you didn't have anything more to offer because there is no more. The Jesus Christ of the bible is enough for me. You can have the Jesus of the COGIC!}

As noted the individual lacked total respect for me as a PASTOR not Passa (whatever that is) and my Christian heritage, even went on to attribute the works of Bishop Charles H. Mason to ignorance and turns the Bible into fantasy and discredits the In Filling of the Holy Ghost. Even goes on to equate the move of God within the Church Of God In Christ to that of know cults and cultic philosophies. Finally, this so called man of God says that he served the Church Of God In Christ for 30 years before deciding not to Pastro a church offered to him, and credits every COGIC Pastor as being blind and led of the devil. For this I responded as follows:

A back-slidden, defunct preacher, who came in off the accolades of YOUR FATHER (who I’M SURE was a GOOD MAN)…But you didn’t pay for your promotion within the church in any way, you probably rode off of your associations and FAMILY name, MORE THAN likely obsessed over some sin in your life, felt convicted because you never did anything but probably "feel good" spiritually, and then had the nerve to become ungrateful and now spend you time bashing the very beliefs that sustained your family for years...
PLEASE! Like Mayor Harold Washington said about the Daily family of Chicago "Why should I RESPECT SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T EARN WHAT THEY GOT and WHO DOESN’T HONOR ME, MY HISTORY OR ANYTHING I STAND?"
FURTHER, you have NO IDEA of what the COGIC Manual is about (IF YOU EVER HAD ONE) AND HAVE THE NERVE TO COMPARE A BOOK OUTLINING LITERGY, DOCTRINAL SUMMATIONS AND DISCPLINARY GUIDELINES... with OCCULT works such as the The Book Of Mormon and the The New World Translation. YOU ARE PITIFUL and a FARCE to the highest degree!}

I also pray that your self-leading and following of other rejecters of the TRUTH of the Baptism Of The Holy Ghost, hasn’t led you into the category of blasphemy and or to the place where God has rejected you or turned you over to a reprobate mind. If you’re angry reading this, THAT’S ONE SURE SIGN THAT YOU’RE ABOUT GONE.

In response to this Mr. Jones has encouraged this man to pursue his blasphemy against both myself and the Church Of God In Christ. Although Mr. Jones has agreed to review and add non Pentecostal ministries to his line of criticisms he has not done so as of yet. This is partially due to the fact that he is also a sensationalist. In other words Pimping his followers for attention.

His site yet remains full of individuals who mock and criticize Pentecostalism and with his encouragement they even go as far as to ridicule tongues, miracles and accredit the move of God to the devil. It is for that blasphemy that Mr. Jones will be brought into judgement by a righteous and just God.

II Peter 3:3 ~ "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,"

Further Mr. Jones, although claiming not to be a minister, leads his followers in Biblical instruction claiming to follow the pattern of hermenutics set forth by reformers such as John Calvin, Martin Luther and Jonathan Edwards. In fact he has exalted their writings and belief to the status of Secondary Apostles. When asked for a Biblical reason why gifts and tongues DON'T exist today, Mr. Jones remains lost in his world of confusion and further asks his faithful to support his beliefs.

Psalms 7:13-17~ "Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate. I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high".

Proverbs 6:16-19~"These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. "

So in short what is the word of God to Mr. Jones?~ REPENT, GET SAVED, and STOP leading your followers to hell and perdition. PULPIT PIMP DOWN CALL 911!
