COGIC 104th Annual Holy Convocation


 NEW, NEW, NEW ------> COGIC Issues Pt. 1 and COGIC Issues Pt. 2 <------NEW, NEW, NEW 
Dynamic Interview With Elder D.L. Foster Of Gcmwatch.com 

As the saints of God converge upon St. Louis, MO. for the 104th Annual Holy Convocation, we are reminded of the precarious times in which we live. There are ISSUES that must be addressed. ISSUES that will be addressed and spiritual blessings that must be delivered. I don't think that there is a better theme delivered for this holy time of reflection among the Saints of God. 

God's Church, God's People, God's Agenda!
We must remember that God hasn't called this church or any individual believer, to be like anyone or everyone else. He has called us, to holiness, without which "no man shall see the Lord" (Heb. 12:14). The redefinition of holiness within the culture and the church is a challenge of epic proportions. What does it mean to be "Saved, Sanctified, Baptized and Filled With The Holy Ghost" as we once proudly and unashamedly stated? What should the church do about the ever increasing and alarming allegations of Clergy Sexual Abuse and Misconduct (aka: SINS)? -I grow tired of giving ugly and deplorable behaviors good, politically correct and pretty titles-

"Saved, Sanctified, Baptized & Filled With The Precious Gift Of The Holy Ghost"


Frank Bartleman. (1871-1936)
Frank Bartleman
(1871-1936)
"The early church came forth from the upper room fresh in her "first love" (Revelation 2v4), baptized with the Holy Spirit, filled with God, possessing both the graces and the gifts of the Spirit, and with 100 percent consecration for God. This was the secret of her power. She was all for God, and God was all for her. This principle will apply in all ages, both individually and collectively. No sacrifice on the altar means no fire. The fire of God never falls on an empty altar. The greater the sacrifice, the more the fire." ~"Azusa Street" by Frank Bartleman 
If one has been around the Pentecostal church for any length of time, one has either said or heard someone say that they are glad to be
"...Saved, sanctified, baptized and filled with the precious gift of the Holy Ghost and that with [a mighty burning]fire!"
The following is an attempt to display why that saying was important within what became known as the Pentecostal church and circles, and what, if anything, that it means today. One may also reference our previous article "What Does 21st Century Holiness Look Like?" for additional information on the holiness movement. 

Some Turn Of The Century Pentecostal History

The turn of the 20th century gave rise to what became known as Pentecostalism in the West. Originally termed "The Apostolic Faith Movement" people from all denominations and faith persuasions were drawn to a place in Los Angeles, California at 312 Azusa St., to witness, analyze and partake in what was a religious phenomena. You see, there was not only shouting, spiritual dancing, and a new level of freedom of worship, there was also an out-flowing of spiritual gifts, beginning with "tongues" according to Acts 2:1-4:

Tonex ~ B Slade...He Did Go Away...Lord Please Help Him!

They ask:  What happened? How did he get like this? 

If what he is saying in this video is true, and I have no reason to doubt it, someone has [H E (Double Hockey Sticks)] to pay!
"As God has made me in his image, he didn't say, now that I've made you in this image, stop here. He says continue to evolve, learn more about yourself.  About life. Every 10 years we go through a paradigm shift, where what we thought 10 years ago was absolute. And so 10 years after Tonex, I'm at that paradigm shift, I have a better understanding of who I am, what I'm supposed to do, and why it can only happen now. "cause the climate of the universe is ready for change. It couldn't have happened 10 years ago. I wasn't ready, and now the people are ready." ~ B.Slade   
This is a sad testimony when the business of church turns our families to demonic oppression and possession. Why did he "pretend" so long? Because they taught him to and it was all he knew. Listen to this song, and if it is not sad I don't know what it is. 

He professes that he is on a special mission and assignment from God to reach certain of those that are lost. However he himself is not healed. I know nothing else that will help except for prayer and casting the devil out.

Blessed!

Zachery Tims, New York & A Good Name

Prov. 22:1 ~ "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold."

The public may never know what caused the death of Pastor Zachery Tims, what the substance was in his pocket or if the "real" Tims stood up before his death. According to reports over the last couple of weeks, Mr. Tims mother has sued  to withhold information from public records. 

While we certainly understand the love of a mother toward her son and the preservation of his memory toward the public and for the benefit of his children; those that followed and supported his ministry deserve to be confronted with the truth. After all, many people contributed to this man's ministry and bought his material with their hard earned money. Many viewed him regularly on TV, and had confidence in his insights.  Zachery appeared in multiple conferences and collected hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars in part based on his testimony, portrayed lifestyle and statements of public encouragement. He didn't do this alone. He did this with friends and other mega star Christian ministers some of which have already said that they knew Zachery had problems and certain issues.
"I thought I was the only one who know how unhappy Zach was, how broken he was, how afraid he was if anybody was to see any flaw in him. He tried hard to heal himself, to fix himself,"~ Bishop T. D. Jakes
Mr. Tims family weren't sole contributors toward his perceived success or the lifestyle that he managed to live as one in the service of the Lord. Just as the family

Islam, Submission With No Peace Pt. 7

Pastor Youcef & Wife Tina
What Will You Give For The Sake Of The Gospel?


Heb. 12:4 ~ "Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin."
When asked to repent of his "apostasy" of becoming a Christian, this was the Pastor's response:
"Repent means to return. What should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?" ~ Pastor Youcef
This was followed by him saying that he could NOT return to the religion of his "ancestors" (Islam). Here's a little more of the story.


Sharia Law In Action & United States Silence In The Face Of Oppression!

Now, the Iranian Supreme (Mullah Clerics) Court which is a court of ISLAMIC Law, not a court of democratic process law, has said that Youcef has been convicted for Christianity and his religious beliefs.
"During court trials, he denied the prophecy of Mohammad and the authority of Islam. He has stated that he is a Christian and no longer Muslim. During many sessions in court with the presence of his attorney and a judge, he has been sentenced to execution by hanging according to article 8 of Tahrir–olvasileh."
However, more recently, since the international attention has increased on the violation of human rights (which is legitimate in this case) and imprisonment, the Iranian leaders have switched the claims and trumped up a LIE charging rape and extortion.
“This individual is guilty and his crime is not attempting to convert others to Christianity, rather his crimes are of a security nature,” ~Ali Rezvani, Deputy Governor of Gilan Province.
The "death penalty" according to leading Iranian spokespersons, has been suspended however. Under Islamic
Law, that would be an impossibility IF the charges are true. To further show how great of a FARCE this is,

President Obama At The HRC With Annotations

I've recently completed installing annotations in the video of the President Barack Obama's speech to the HRC last Saturday evening Oct. 1st, 2011. As you can hear it was full of garbage, rhetoric and homo-agenda speech.  The video is in 2 parts.

Part 1


Part 2


We won't be deceived by this mess anymore.

The Mormon Mirage

Hank Hanegraaff of the Christian Research Institute (CRI) has been a diligent worker and voice within mainstream Christian apologetics. For almost 25 years he has been a mainstay on his daily "Bible Answer Man" radio broadcast which was inherited by the founder of CRI, the late Dr. Walter Martin.

Though at times controversial, Hank never fails to deliver an answer for the hope that lies within with gentleness and with respect. Recently he delivered the following regarding the religion and the belief system of the emerging leading republican presidential candidate Mit Romney:
*****************
"How Mormon am I?" Mitt Romney responded to a journalist from The Atlantic in 2005, during his first run for President of the United States. "You know, the principles and values taught to me by faith are values I aspire to live by and are as American as motherhood and apple pie. My faith believes in family, believes in Jesus Christ... And I'm not perfect, but I'm one aspiring to be a good person as defined by the biblical Judeo-Christian standards..."
It sounds pretty good, but then, it's supposed to. For decades, Mormon leadership has made a concerted effort to win over Americans by making it appear Mormons hold the same basic tenets as Christians. In fact, they are obscuring the face of Mormonism through the manufacture of a Mormon mirage.

Will The HRC Hire A "Non-Homosexual" To Replace Solmonese?

Hypocrisy Watch

The current President of the Human Rights campaign (HRC), Joe Solmonese,  has announced that he will not renew his contract and sill step aside when his contract expires in March 31st, 2012.

"HRC has never been stronger and after nearly seven years, this is the right moment for me to move on,”...“As I explore new professional possibilities, I plan on continuing to pour my heart and soul into improving the lives of members of our community – from battling proposed marriage amendments to creating more equitable workplaces to ensuring the President Obama is reelected for a second term.”
There are a list of candidates that are being reviewed for the position all of them either gay or lesbian.

I wonder, since "equality" is supposedly the message of the HRC will it live up to its talk? Will they hire a straight or non-gay male or female to lead them? My bet is that they WON'T! Not because a qualified, non-gay, candidate doesn't exist, but because they will only cater to homosexuals in employment and only include homosexuals in decision making and in the direction of the HRC, while claiming that heterosexuals are discriminating against them.

We all know that President Obama's claim is that the goal of his Presidency and the HRC is to end "Discrimination". He stated just as much on Oct. 1st 2011 to the HRC as you can see for yourself HERE

Speculation has it that Lesbian activist Cathy Woolard is primed for the post. Othes say it will go to someone else within the gay community.  All I can say is that with all this talk of "non-discrimination" and "equality" it sure seems like a good time for someone to put their money where their mouth has been. 

Below is Solmonese's last dinner with the President. I have added annotation so that you won't miss any of the overt and subtle misstatements that are made.  

Now, remember in 2009, while many of us thought that funding of our troops was the only issue, and was wondering why it was taking so long to pass a bill to fund them? Solmonese reveals that he was proud that there was a "little attachment" that he didn't think anyone would say anything about nor fight...This is gay advocacy...their way at ALL COSTS and at the expense of all else and all others!

In addition to his Million dollar mansion with his husband/wife Jed Hastings, here are a few additional facts about Joe:
  • He previously was chief executive officer of EMILY's (Early Money Is Like Yeast) List. 
  • He has also worked for numerous campaigns and in government positions. 
  • He began his career as an aide in the office of Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis. 
  • He also developed the Political Opportunity Program for state and local candidates to ensure a stream of viable, electable women candidates.
Out of about 8.7 million estimated gay adults within the US, whatever Joe has done, hasn't been enough to make gays give up the cash in the amounts that gay advocacy groups would like to see it given up. Here are the current estimates of giving from gays to gay advocacy groups such as the HRC:
  • Only 3.4% (280,984 persons) of the LGBT community donated greater than $35 to LGBT causes in 2009. That was roughly about 280,984 persons. 
  • Only .2% (14,748 persons) of the LGBT community donated greater than $1,000 to LGBT causes in 2009. 
  • This leaves 96.5% (8.4 million persons) that don't contribute to LGBT causes. 
(Source: The Williams Institute LGB Population Estimates, MAP Analysis)


The gay advocacy is politically connected and they are pressing more political buttons than ever to maneuver and manipulate both the law and the court of public opinion. It is time for the church to engage in a serious battle of cultural apologetics to place a full orbed, healthy and biblical perspective on these issues. 

2 Thess. 2:7 ~ "For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way."
(NIV)


Part of our mission as believers, until the rapture, is to STAND in the way in effort to prevent lawlessness, so that souls can be saved and harvested into the kingdom. Preaching to the 4 walls and trying to convince others over the internet about some broke and perverted theological system plays into the hands of the homo-advocate. Then the rank hypocrisy of leaders such as Eddie Long and others have dealt the church a significant blow. Then others that refuse to be a part of uprooting cultural conformity are another part of the problem and not the solution. 

Will the REAL Saints, PLEASE stand up?
Blessed!

When "Gay Day" Comes Your Way - The Homosexual Rite Becomes Law Pt. 2

Catholic Smackdown In Illinois 
Harvey Grossman
 "Studies show gay and lesbian couples do as well as parents as opposite-sex couples,"..."They (Catholic Charities) do not have the right to impose religious values on those who are wards of the state," Harvey Grossman, Legal Director  ACLU Illinois

I previously spoke of a Presidential candidate and his promises in "When Gay Day Comes Your Way -The Homosexual Rite Becomes Law", sharing information as to why any community, state, and the country should not consider legalizing homosexual marriage. In that article I pointed out the atrocities suffered by Dr. David and Tonia Banner when it came to the right of the state (Massachusetts) to educate their children in a manner consistent with the law. Let's just say that parental "rights" to educate a child otherwise within the public school system doesn't exist!

You see, when gay marriage is the law, the public school system has the RIGHT and even the MANDATE to teach your children that gay sexuality is valid and that marriage between gays are just as admirable as marriage between heterosexual couples, simply because it is the law. In fact, isn't that the exact position of our President  just a short time ago to the Human Rights Campaign? As a reminder here is what he said then:
"My expectation is that when you look back on these years, you will see a time in which we put a stop to discrimination against gays and lesbians whether in the office or on the battlefield. You will see a time in which we as a nation finally recognized relationships between two men or two women, are just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman." ~ President Barack Obama 10/10/2009 Address to The Human Rights Campaign
This theory, that homosexual relationships are "just as real and admirable" as relationships between a man and a woman, was introduced to and felt within Illinois. In a landmark decision, Illinois Circuit Court Judge, John Schmidt, recently held that foster care placement agencies within Illinois that are bound by a religious code of ethics and closely held religious beliefs against homosexual civil unions, are, for the most part, out of business, or at least cannot expect State funds as compensation for their services.  

The Peoria Journal Star reports that the Illinois Department Of Children & Family Services (DCFS) previously paid Catholic Charities of Illinois $30.7 Million annually for the placement of 15,600 foster children through 4 operating units in Illinois. Those units or agencies are located in Peoria, Joliet, Belleville, and Springfield.. The Catholic Charities of Peoria, which is the largest operating unit of the four,  had a $24 Million
