St Mark New Pastor in Major Lawsuit - Bishop Steven Arnold New Wife - Bishop Eddie Long Update - Middle East News, Rapture and Illuminati Connection

Pastor Phillip Pointer is the new Illuminati Religious Agent at St. Mark Baptist (COGIC) Church Little Rock Arkansas

It is no surprise that Phillip Pointer was chosen as the pastor to lead St. Mark. He was the only candidate who had experience of converting a traditional Baptist into a Full Gospel (COGIC) church. He will continue the conversion from traditional baptist to Full Gospel (COGIC) started by Steven Arnold and the teaching of British Israel. (Aryan Jews are God Chosen people)
Based on the tenants of Full Gospel and Phillip Pointer on-line college degree - he will promote the diabolical Luciferian rapture doctrine, eternal security, and the new age prosperity religion. His salary is $700,000 annually with a guarantee $50,000 anniversary gift.
Is St. Mark New Pastor a swindler, crook, con-man, or just a religious agent for the powers of this world?
Should Pointer be behind bars at Laurel Hill Correctional facility than behind the pulpit at St. Mark?
Did the Elders of St. Mark know of his devious acts at St. John Baptist?

St. John no longer exist. Church was sold to a housing developer and the church was demolished. Who got the money for the sale of the church?

Will Pointer do the same thing to St. Mark?

Are the Elders part of a conspiracy to defraud St. Mark members?

What is the elders agenda? Why did they bring him to St. Mark?
St. John Baptist vs. Phillip Pointer
The Members Lawsuit:
Members of St. John's Congregation wrote a brief history of the church in Alexandria. According to that history, the “St. John Mission” was formed on N. Alfred St. in 1925. Later that year, Deacon David Askew, the chairman of the Deacon Board, wrote letters to 13 churches asking that the mission be made a church. The council approved and in 1926 the mission became the St. John Baptist Church. The church quickly grew, enough that it was able to purchase the current building, dilapidated at the time, and remodeled it. In 1948 the renovation was complete. Later, in 1973, numerous renovations were made. An educational building and a kitchen with a separate dining area were built then, and 10 years later, after the congregation had outgrown the original capacity, a 100-seat addition was built. In 1993, the church finally convinced the City of Alexandria to sell them the parking lot behind the church.
The Split

In December 2000, St. John’s Rev. John W. Johnson retired as pastor, and the church formed a search committee to find his replacement. By 2002, Phillip L. Pointer, Sr. had been installed as the pastor-elect and was given the position permanently the next year. Under Pointer, several major changes were made to the church. In 2004, St. John’s was incorporated as a non-stock, non-profit organization through the State of Virginia State Corporation Commission. About one year later, the church met to appoint trustees who were then verified as legal owners of the church property in court. (St. John’s Baptist Church owns the property and the trustees make the decisions on behalf of the congregation.) This group of trustees had no intention of moving services or selling the property.
Pointer, however, felt differently. After he was appointed pastor, he also named himself CEO. According to evidence submitted in the ongoing civil case, the church’s new Constitution gave Pointer total authority. However, the trustees were the only ones recognized in court as owners of the property. Pointer announced that St. John’s would be merging with Providence Baptist Church in Upper Marlboro, Md., a failing church run by his grandfather. The group of trustees led by Diggs alleges that Pointer gave the pastor of that church, his grandfather, a “generous retirement package” and also
failed in his promise to maintain and operate St. John’s in Alexandria. Additionally, sources confirmed that Pointer had put up the church and Providence Baptist as collateral in order to obtain a $1.8 million mortgage on the property in Maryland. Pointer refused to comment for this article, citing his lawyer’s advice.
“We elected the pastor for St. John’s, not for this church in Upper Marlboro,” Diggs said. “I understand he wants to help his granddaddy, and as Christians we are supposed to help people, but not at the expense of 80 other parishioners.”
The Civil Case
Services have stopped being held at the church because the group led by Pointer and Traverse Gray, Sr. is attempting

to sell the property. Approximately 60 – 90 congregation members are currently attending services at Charles Houston; Pointer would not say how many, if any, parishioners had followed him to Upper Marlboro. The group contends it has the right to sell the property because it transferred the deed in a sort of legal end-around. Gray signed a “Confirmation Deed” in 2006 as both “Grantor” and “Grantee” for the St. John Baptist Church. Essentially he had transferred the deed to himself. However, the Diggs group is challenging the legality of this transfer, citing that the previously approved group of trustees was still the owners of the property and that Gray’s deed was never actually approved by the Court.
“The corporation that transferred the deed to Providence St. John’s was not the owner of the property at that time,” said Horace McClerkin, the lead counsel for the Diggs group. “The trustees were the owner of the property, and they do not have the authority to transfer the property without church approval.”
“He [Pointer] just decided he could sign all the papers,” said Diggs. “But it’ll play out in court. It’s just not good for St. John’s, period.”
The case went to court when the Diggs group filed an injunction against Pointer after the pastor had removed all of the church’s property and moved it to Providence Baptist in Maryland. “They removed all the church’s assets, which is why we filed the injunction to begin with,” said McClerkin.
The Pointer group motioned to have the injunction dissolved, and the judge agreed, unless Diggs and the trustees could post a $1.4 million dollar bond, a somewhat unusual measure.
“I believe the burden is not on the trustees and the fiduciaries in this case to put up the million dollar bond,” McClerkin said. “The trustees are the owners of the property.”
Diggs went further, saying, “A bond was not needed and never had been installed in a case in Virginia.”
McClerkin said that he has been “aggressively” pursuing discovery and has served an interrogatory request, but his requests have gone unanswered. “It’s very difficult to respond to a request for documents when you don’t have the documents and you know you don’t have them,” he said.
Diggs added, “They have had 60 days to respond to discovery and they haven’t at all. They seem to think they’re above the law.”
McClerkin did not seem optimistic about a settlement between the sides, given the lack of response from the Pointer camp thus far. “Unless they’re willing to return all the property they took and basically undo everything, I don’t really see settlement as an option,” he said. “It’s really too early to talk about it though, anything can happen.”
Potential Buyers
The sale of the church is currently at a stand-off and not just because of the disputed ownership and the pending court case. According to sources, Pointer’s group approached developer Eakin/Youngentob about selling the property, valued in 2011 at $303,419. EYA is the developer that has partnered with Alexandria Redevelopment Housing Authority to build Alexandria’s newest public housing units, many of which are mixed in with the developer’s market-rate town houses in Old Town. Specifically, Eakin/Youngentob just redeveloped the James Bland and James Bland Addition Projects into a mixture of public housing and market rate units, known as the Old Town Commons. In essence the EYA – ARHA partnership controls all the property immediately surrounding the church. According to sources, ARHA was approached by E/Y about developing on the church property but declined to get involved in the church’s ongoing struggle. EYA also had preliminary discussions with Alexandria Capital Planning Staff, who also advised them that there would be difficulties in tearing down the church. EYA now has no plans to move forward with the church property.
To make matters more complicated, St. John’s sits in the heart of the Parker Gray Historic District and is protected by the Parker Gray Board of Architectural Review. Any potential buyer would face the hurdle of having the church designated as an historic site by the Board, thus preventing its demolition. The building itself has always been valued by the City at $0, and it could be deemed a historic site. This has led to the current situation where buyers are wary of the property until after the ownership case is resolved, and even then if the Pointer group is allowed to sell the property, the church may still be protected.
In the Meantime
For now, much of the St. John’s congregation has continued to hold services at Charles Houston, led by minister Charles Hall. It is still unusual for the parishioners, and it is impossible to not be distracted. Still, despite all the acrimony over the cancellation of services at the church and the subsequent injunction, Diggs and the others haven’t forgotten the root of their disagreement – faith.
“There are no bad people on either side,”
What are his members and people from St. John are saying Phillip Pointer?

  1. christianboi says:
    I think it is a shame that Pointer is kicking older members out of the church, some of these one that help him along and that are old enough to be elders. I have never ever heard of no Pastor in my lifetime that puts Christians out of the church because you are struggling over in Maryland and want to sell a Historic Building the heart of Alexandria to help pay your mortage that is crazy and foolish. St. John had been a pillar in the community of Alexandria and will remain. The devil tried to God always have the final answer and St. John aint going no where and he is bigger to put members out of the church because of a buck he need to be EXPOSED everybody needs to know other newspapers and the every channel news needs to know. ST. JOHN WILL STAND FOREVER UNTIL THE RETURN OF CHRIST.
  2. WorkInProgress says:
    First I want to address Christianboi, I understand that you seem to be upset about this situation but let me say this, St. John is a building and from my understanding a building does not mean that you as a christian have lost anything. Being a christian should be within you and not about a building!! I will have to say that this is a lot of Hoopla about some so called Christians that are getting all upset about a building. When you have Christ in your heart it doesn't matter where you hold service. I know that you will probably not agree with me and that's truly alright, we all have our own opinions and that is just what it is an opinion. Trust and believe that God will prevail over this situation and He will do what is best for all!! I am a life-long resident of Alexandria and I am aware of the St. John Church, I also am a follower of Pastor Phillip Pointer and I do know that He is truly a man of God!! The Bible says that one can not touch an anointed person of God and anything good will not come to them! I trust that this will all be over soon and the DEVIL will find his place and get somewhere and SIT DOWN!!!! Please don't get me wrong I feel for all who are involved and I will be praying for your true strength in God and allow all this mess to be over with soon!!! So with that said, if I stepped on any toes, Oh well so be it!!! Praying for all the saints involved and may God bless all of you!!!
  3. christianboi says:
    This is some encouragements to Offical St. John Baptist Church God has not brougth u thus far from 1925 until Present to leave and forsake you. The community local church, northern va area are standing with and for you. God wont let no body tear down a church for money God build that church and it will stand. I think Rev. Hall is doing a great job in leading the congreation along with the Deacons and Trustees God is about to give everything that was taken from you and more. God is about to send u an increase in members and finaces he is about to bless this branc of Zion, so hang in there the devil tried to destroy like the bible says what God has join together let no man tear apart. We the community of Alexandria and the Northern VA are standing with you and for u. Bless You and God watch over this branch of Zion in Jesus Name.
  4. Browneskinn says:
    I hope Pointer is reading this. This is really sad and I am appalled that the members elected him as Rev. Johnson's successor. It's a great lesson here to be learned and that's even the Devil knows scriptures. We have to watch what and who we chose to follow. With that being said I pray that God will not allow him to win this case. St. John Church was built on the backs of some of my friend’s great grandmothers, grandmothers, mothers, aunt’s sisters and so on. The members should have realized his intent once he merged the two churches. For Pointer to attempt to remove a piece of our History from Alexandria shows his character and also supports the fact that this was his intentions from the beginning. Pointer electing himself CEO should have been another sign. If all church institutions allow the Pastor total control, we will have money hungry people building and taking churches from its members just as Pointer is trying to do. He's young, greedy and lacks any compassion for the original members of St. John. As for the younger and newer members who support what he's doing - you too should be ashamed. It was the elderly members of St. John that kept the church afloat for decades. I can attest to that because that's just the way it has been for centuries. Even the church I attend it's the tides and offerings that is given by elderly members of most churches that keep them functioning. The CHURCH has always belonged to the people. If in fact he's a TRUE MAN OF GOD, he would back out gracefully and have faith that he can resurrect Providence Baptist Church in Maryland with his new members and leave St. John in Alexandria. I guarantee he won’t get very far. As for the remaining members GOD WILL PREVAIL. He always does.
  5. christianboi says:
    Let me address Working in Progress first of all if you read the article in the middle section and you are a follow of Pointer then youn will see where his lawyer told him do not comment on this and the word is out that he told the members do not comment on the article either because this could be use in the trial.
    Second of all I am long time resident of alexandria too almost 50 years I joined St. John in the early 70's and no I am not mad I am very dissappointed in a man that called his self a Pastor and steals and treats elderly people so cruled thas what I have a problem with and I know the legal and law I know the bi-laws I have a whole lot of money in that church and anyway the building cannot be sold its Histroical so know whats going on then goin on hear say you don't need to respond.
  6. christianboi says:
    @Brownskin I agree with you all the way it a shame that a man that called his self a Pastor the word is all over Alexandria, and I look for this to be in the Washington Post and all of the news channels God has the final say and I cannot wait til the trial in Janaury 2012 to see him pay for all of this. He is now very embrassed because he ha has been EXPOSED VERY BAD. St. John is going to be just find God is going to bring them back up and into the church where it was founded in 1925 and he if took everything out to sell for money thas terrible thas not annointed because if he was a true annointed man of God and fill with the Holy Ghost then he would just pray and God will send him the finances and other means to take care of the ministry. God will supply them with all BRAND NEW THINGS. Be blessed. All of alexandria and the northern va churches are here and supporting St. John

St. Mark Baptist Church Little Rock Pastor Search Up-date:

March 11, 2012
St Mark Pastor Search Up-date
Here we go again.
A few months ago the elders asked the church to pray and fast for three days on the two candidates that the search committee had as their finalist after a year long search. It had been a while since I had fasted for three days but decided to go along with the program. The result of the corporate fast was one name. WOW the church-wide fast worked. God had answered St. Mark’s prayers. But wait…a few on the elders committee decided to over ruled God’s answer to St. Mark’s prayers.
Here we go again..
Did God answer the prayers of St. Mark the first time?

I would like to commend the nominating committee for doing an excellent job, unfortunately their tiring efforts are in vain. Their work is only a facade. Their real choice and the people choice will never get pass the controller or the elders who are serving as illuminati agents.
Two of the current candidates are traditional baptist ministers. They are well qualified to pastor a traditional baptist church but St. Mark's constitution from hell call for a pastor who is an Illuminati religious agent. St. Marks' constitution of 2002, implemented by Steve Arnold is far more damaging to the destruction of St. Mark than any moral failure. I see why Bishop Arnold received such a generous severance package. He hijacked St. Mark.
The pastor that the illuminati and the elders will choose will be successful in hijacking traditional Baptist churches and turning them over to Full Gospel. Full Gospel is a branch of The Church of God in Christ. C.H. Mason alleged founder of COGIC received the name and doctrine from Charles Fox Parham (founder of KKK West Coast, founder of Assemblies of God, Grand-master of Freemason) Parham believed in Anglo Israelism or the Anglo European is God’s chosen people. Parham was also a disciple of Albert Pike who worshiped Lucifer as his God. Thus you have COGIC and Full Gospel teaching the Luciferian Rapture Doctrine. Although this doctrine is taught in Southern Baptist Churches and seminaries, it was not the teaching of traditional Black Baptist Convention Churches.

He will believe and teach Anglo Israelism (British Israel -Rapture) and they will promote the COGIC and Illuminati agenda. The question is who will make the best over-seer. The master of the plantation usually chose the Negro that was best suited in keeping the other Negros on the plantation in check. The master controlled what the HNIC thought and what he taught. What the master controller feared most was an independent thinking black man.
Only one candidate is qualified to be the illuminati religious agent of St. Mark. He received his undergraduate college degree through the mail or correspondence school. He will be the next Bishop.

The other two candidates are for show.
St. Mark constitution forbid any other minister to be a senior pastor other than a hijacker who will be under complete control of the illuminati kabal.

Who is the controller of St. Mark?
Whose constitution should St. Mark follow, God’s or Man’s?
Is St. Mark God’s Church or does it belongs to the Illuminati?
Did God answer St. Mark’s prayers the first time?

October 17, 2011

At a special called meeting on October 15, 2011, it was announced that St. Mark will maintain the current status quo: the church will continue to function without a senior pastor and the Board of Elders will maintain full control of the church. The members were asked to suggest names for a senior pastor.
Back to square one.
Prior to the called meeting the search committee presented the final results of their year long search and tens of thousands of dollars spent for a new pastor. A name was presented to the Board of Elders but three elders rejected the name. To maintain their power, current salaries, and keep the Illuminati agenda intact, the elders decided to re-start the search process.
According to the current constitution, the name of the search committee should have been presented to the members for a vote. This was not done.
The action of the Board of Elders was not in harmony with St. Mark's current constitution, nor the will of the people and it is hard to see God's will in their action, but their action is in harmony with the will of the Illuminati.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
St. Mark Board of Elders grossly abused their power and authority. They reveled their true colors.
1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

The Board of Elders rejecting the search committee recommendation caused serious damage the reputation of St. Mark.

The action of the Board of Elders was unconstitutional and illegal.

It was an absolute violation and breach of the governing by-laws.

The action of the board showed contempt to the process, blatant disregard to the will of the church membership and most of all the action of the Board of Elders showed shameful disrespect to all the ministers who applied for the position. Their action will cost St. Mark millions of dollars in lost offerings as well as making the church liable to court litigation.
A restart of the process would allow the church elders to retain control of the church for maybe another year or until the search committee present a name that the board could easily control. The concept of the board of elders is foreign to the constitution of The Baptist Convention or Missionary Baptist. The concept of Board of Elders is part of the Full Gospel and COGIC organizational structure.
The root of the problem at St. Mark is their constitution.
The current constitution does not allow a pastor outside of the Illuminati sponsor Full Gospel (COGIC) to be accepted by the board of elder as senior pastor. It allow for only an illuminati trained minister to serve as senior pastor. The current constitution is a chaotic mixture of Baptist and COGIC (Full Gospel) but mostly COGIC.
The board is made up of elders picked by the previous pastor who was a COGIC ordained Bishop. Every bishop regardless of denomination is illuminati sponsor. St Mark Board of Elders was hand pick by an Illuminati bishop.
In essence the current constitution was formulated by Illuminati religious agents. It is the foundation for Illuminati control of St. Mark Baptist.
St. Mark must decide if they are a Baptist church or an Illuminati sponsor Full gospel (COGIC) church. If they are a Baptist church, St. Mark must formulate and adopt a new constitution and by-law.
St Mark need to change their name to St. Mark Church of God in Christ or St Mark Full Gospel if they keep the current constitution.
The current constitution is unworkable in a Baptist church.

St. Mark New Pastor Search Committee Release Names of Candidates on Short List

The Illuminati must have agents or strong influence on the search committee judging from the candidates who made the final three.

There has been a constant stream of preachers associated with the leading illuminati schools (Dallas Theological Seminary, Southwest Theological Seminary) behind the pulpit at St Mark. The person of persons inviting these preachers must be a strong believer in the false doctrine promoted by these Jesuits-Illuminati schools esp. the Luciferian rapture hoax. St Mark should reassess the duties of the person or person inviting the guest preachers. It is unknown rather the person inviting these preacher is naive or is purposely brain-washing the minds of the members of St. Mark with Jesuit-Illuminati teachings.

St Marks should review their board of elders and current ministers because some of the leaders are active or sleeper agents of the illuminati. These elders and ministers are putting St Mark under Jesuit-illuminati control.

The Illuminati and the Omega fraternity must be elated because a que dog and a member of the illuminati sponsor elite Black Boule is a front runner to be the next pastor at St. Mark.

Arnold's resignation did not have the Illuminati blessings.

Bishop Arnold resignation was requested by the Board of Elders at St. Mark who were concern about the spiritual condition of their Pastor and St. Mark.

The actions of the Board of Elders at St. Mark were in harmony with The Word of God.

Bishops Defined:

Bishops are Illuminati agents and are not subject to the same standards as regular ministers of God.

Bishops are high ranking state or government officials whose main job is to control the parishioners for the Illuminati and promote the Illuminati agenda.

The Illuminati will give bishops their financial and political support.

(Ex. Bishop Eddie Long church can not fire him regardless of his corruption and gross immorality. The Illuminati built New Birth, they own the church and completely control Eddie Long.)

Bishop Arnold resigned before the Illuminati got complete control of St. Mark.

Steve Arnold was raised in the Church of God in Christ Church and said that he will always be COGIC. The COGIC has always played a major role in promoting the Rothschild/Illuminati agenda especially Christian Zionism (British Israel) and the Luciferian Rapture doctrine.

Bishop Arnold was given sound Godly advise by his spiritual father but chose to take the advice of politicians and Illuminati religious agents and start a new church. Grace Temple will be according to worldly standards a very successful church and will become the sister church of New Birth in Atlanta. The church will grow numerically but the member’s spiritual growth will be questionable. Will Arnold become another Bishop Long? Power, money and sex are Eddie Long passion and the foundation of his church.

Will power, money and sex become Arnold's passion?

Did Bishop Arnold do the right thing by not taking the advice of his spiritual father who told him to set down for a year and to work on his spiritual life?

Arnold does not have the spiritual blessings of his spiritual father but he has the blessings of the Illuminati.

Revelation chapter 2 tells us of the Nicolaitans. The Nicolaitans taught that the deeds of the flash have nothing to do with ones salvation. Christians were free to do as they please because grace will always cover them. Nicolaitans advocated sexual freedom. Will Arnold and his Grace Temple Church follow in the footsteps of a Nicolaitan Church? Arnold will have the support of the Illuminati financial and political apparatus as well the Illuminati vast media empire at his disposal. The Illuminati doesn't care about their religious agents moral corruption only about their ability to control the blind sheep of their congregation, get their money, and preach error effectively.

Oct 6, 2010 ..

Bishop Steven Arnold, who resigned Sunday as senior pastor of megachurch St. Mark Baptist, are organizing a rally in his support this week. I've sent a note to the reported lead organizer, but if you know anything more, let me know.

UPDATE: An employee at Dunbar Community Center said a room had been reserved there late this afternoon for what was described as a meeting of St. Mark members, but it's not a public rally. If the group is meeting away from the church, however, it seems safe to presume it's a group with a different view of Arnold's departure. My source said Sen. Tracy Steele, who's close to Arnold, was working to organize the meeting. He has not returned a message asking for information.

UPDATE II: The controversy has cost Arnold another part-time job. He's resigned as a member of the board of Bank of the Ozarks, which paid about $20,000 a year.

UPDATE III: A friend of Arnold's confirms to me that Steele is organizing tonight's meeting. The strategy is to build support for a call that the elders consider asking for an expression from the congregation on whether Arnold's resignation should be accepted or not. Among his supporters, his friend said, there's a feeling that he has apologized and should be forgiven, particularly with the implications for the church should he depart. If there's a strong sentiment against Arnold's return, he likely won't, the friend said.


This is becoming a sad scenario. What's at stake? This is exactly what the Bishop should be asking his self. He alone is responsible for how this play's out. He needs to take responsibilty for what he's done, and step down, take some time-off, and reflect. He needs to know that he is hurting his congregation by not stepping down. He still is influential and can tell his members to stop any rallies, meeting, etc. It's over, I'm done, and if by chance God allows me back in leadership, I will be grateful. But, Bishop be gracious and man enough to do the right thing, step down and silence yourself.

Heck, I think ya'll are overlooking the most important aspect of this whole debacle. The Bishop himself feels that he wronged the church and his congregation and feels his punishment should be his resignation. Honestly, its nice to see someone in a position of power taking the appropriate action and stepping down after admitting to a wrong doing. So many people in positions of power abuse their influence to remain where they are creating a bad example that is then repeated over and over. If the Bishop feels this is his duty, so be it.

Sunday morning Bishop Steven Arnold,

pastor of the 6,700 member Saint Mark Baptist Church,

resigned. He asked the congregation for forgiveness.

Members say he did use the word 'indiscretion' as part

of the reason he was relinquishing leadership of the church.

The announcement stunned the congregation, leading many people to shriek

and others to cry. Arnold has been pastor of Saint Mark

since 1989 and has helped grow that faith

community from the 300 members it had back then.

He told the faithful this would be a time for fasting and

that the next three days would be tough.

This announcement comes just days before Saint Mark is

set to host an "Impact conference."

Arnold is a board member for the Bank of the Ozarks,

Baptist Health System and Philander Smith College.

  • Disgraced Bishop Eddie Long Fears He May Be Distraction At Dome Stand Religious Convocation...

  • Will Bishop Long attend religious rally at the Dome?‎ -Atlanta Journal Constitution - 252 related articles Nov.10

    Bishop Eddie Long, facing a string of legal problems, may not speak at The Stand Campaign, a popular religious rally that draws tens of thousands and is set for Saturday at the Georgia Dome

    Cory "CoCo Brother" Condrey, a radio show host and organizer of the event, said he recently talked with Long for about an hour by phone. He said Long told him that "if I'm going to be a distraction and stop people from coming into the kingdom of God, it might be best if I'm not there."

    Condrey said Long was scheduled to be a speaker on Saturday, but as of Tuesday he wasn't sure if he will speak or attend without speaking.

    Art Franklin, a spokesman for Long, said in a statement that the bishop has "supported Stand from its inception and is looking forward to being in attendance for the Stand Campaign at the Georgia Dome this coming weekend."

    Condrey said he organized The Stand in 2007 and the first rally was held at New Birth Missionary Baptist, Long's DeKalb County megachurch. He still has much support from his congregation. Recently a South Carolina minister held a rally at the State Capitol demanding that Long step down, but Long's spokesman said he has "absolutely no plans" of doing so. He added, however, that "during the upcoming holiday season Bishop Long is planning to take some time to rest. He and his family will spend this time to refresh themselves. Although he will rest from time to time over a period of a few weeks, Bishop Long will remain engaged with the church, the staff, the board and the members of New Birth. Bishop Long is not stepping down nor stepping aside."
    (The Illuminati built New Birth church for Eddie Long and the church members has no say in the outcome of Eddie Long. All the members can do is to follow their pastor and be like him. Their spiritual growth will go no higher than their pastor and the Illuminati cabal that he represent. Eddie Long will be at New Birth as long as the Illuminati want him there.)

    TD Jakes is the spiritual father and mentor to Bishop Eddie Long.

    Bishop TD Jakes ordained Eddie Long as bishop during a Wednesday night prayer meeting while New Birth was worshipping in an old school building. It’s hard to say when Eddie Long became affiliated with the Illuminati. TD Jakes is sponsor by the Illuminati affiliate Time-Warner. Most mega-churches are part of the Rothschild's "Alpha Partners International".

    During last Sunday morning’s service Jakes said Christians should not jump to any conclusions, but just pray about the situation. “There’s nothing to say. You can’t make great decisions with poor information. Until you can separate facts from conjecture there’s nothing to say. . .”

    Jakes summed up the matter saying

    “God is in control,” and once this court battle is over, “One thing’s for sure: somebody, if not everybody in it is gon’ need the blood [of Jesus]

    The Luciferian Rapture Doctrine - Its World-wide Influence and Zionist Connection

    The rapture theory is not Biblical and was founded as an Anti-Reformation tool of the Catholic Church.

    The word rapture comes from the Latin word rapio which mean – to steal, take by force, plunder, snatch, and rape. Jerome mis translated the word he translated the Vulgate from Greek. Rapio and harpazo have totally different meanings.

    The purpose of the rapture theory was to destroy the reformation or control protestantism, recapture the Holy Land and establish the New Word Order and the One world government.

    Barbara Rossing said in her book The Rapture Racket,

    ” the Rapture is a fraud of monumental proportions, as well as a disturbing way to instill fear in people.

    “Whether prescribing a violent script for Israel or survivalism in the United States, this theology distorts God’s vision for the world,” Rossing writes. “In place of healing, the Rapture proclaims escape. In place of Jesus’s blessing of peacemaking, the Rapture voyeuristically glorifies violence and war …. This theology is not biblical. We are not Raptured off the earth, nor is God.

    Where did the rapture theory originate and why?

    Reformers such as Luther, Calvin, Huss, Zwingli, Melanchthon, Bullinger and others had identified the Catholic Church as Mystery Babylon in Revelation and the Popes as the Anti-Christ. Millions of sincere Catholics were leaving the mother church and joining the reformation movement.. The church set out to neutralize and destroy the protestant movement.. What they could not do through brute force and the military inquisitions they did through political espionage, spiritual intrigue, and using mind control techniques by secret societies. Most of the books published on the rapture are brainwashing the readers mind. All of the books written by Tim Lahaye’s, John Hagee’s, Jack van Impe, Jerry Jenkins , John Walvoord and movies such as the Omega Code and Megiddo are design for mind control. This anti-protestant doctrine is taught in many universities and seminaries such as Dallas Theological Seminary, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southwestern Assemblies of God, Zion Bible College, Moody Bible Institute, Global University, Liberty and Regent University and well as a host of other leading colleges and universities The rapture cult has the largest following than any cult in the US or Europe.

    Why were sincere Catholics, priests and monks leaving the Catholic Church.?

    People were leaving because of corruptions in the church. If one look at the Babylonian sun worship, and the present Roman Catholic Mass there are many similarities. Baal worship seem to have taken over the Catholic Church. The icon of the virgin mother and child with halos (representing the sun), Mary as the queen of heaven, (Isis – queen of heaven) confessionals, wafer worship, transubstantiation, and priests as exclusive mediators of God were all derived from the Satanic Babylonian religion. Roman Catholicism became a mixture of witchcraft, Judaism, paganism, and perverted Christianity. When this corruptions was exposed by the reformers, Rome was outraged, and staged Holy Inquisitions, design to rid the world of heretics. The Inquisition included torturing and murdering people who didn’t not agree with the Catholic views. Ten of thousands of people were killed and some historians even put the numbers in the millions. Later, in response to the Vatican’s oppressive dogma, Martin Luther, a former Augustinian monk, nailed his 95 theses to the wall of a church in Germany, heralding Protestantism. . The Vatican was shaken as Protestantism spreads rapidly through Europe. In order to stamp out the spiritual rebellion, Pope Paul III ordered Ignatius de Loyola to found the Order of Jesuits, which would act as the intelligentsia and secret militia of the Vatican. Loyola had already founded the occult Illuminati, which he then placed under the umbrella of the Vatican ” Ignatius a Merovingian Jew from Loyola Spain was a member of the Alumbrados before he founded the Illuminati and the Jesuits. The Merovingian Jews claim to be decedents of Jesus and Mary of Magdalene. Thus you have books and movies like DaVinci Code, Prieure de Sion, Passover Plot, Holy Blood Holy Grail, Bloodline of the Holy Grail, being produced and circulated by Hollywood Kabbalist movie studios and publishing houses controlled by the Illuminati. These books are blasphemous teachings design to nullify the true Gospel of Jesus. Many of the Popes, Cardinals, Bishops and Priest were Merovingian Jews whose agenda was to destroy true Christianity and pervert the true gospel.

    The Jesuits Oath:

    “I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants’ heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.”It was when Pope Paul III convened the Council of Trent that the church formally addressed the protestant reformation with edicts, dogmas and doctrines. A disciple of Ignatius, Francisco Ribera came up with a theory that would take the attention off the Pope as being the Anti-Christ and put it on some future individual. This was the beginning of the Rapture doctrine. The Jesuits infiltrated the protestant movement, developed protestant theology, and purposely mis interpreted scriptures relating to Bible prophecy. They also controlled the educational system and bribe and blackmailed governments of Europe and America to promote their agenda. Two other groups that were instrumental the origin and development of the rapture theory were the Knights Templars (Masons) and the Knights of Malta (Knights of Columbus).

    Barbara Aho said in her article (The Merovingian Dynasty) “it was also the The avowed objective of the Templars was to protect the Christians who came to visit the Holy Places: their secret objective was the re-building of the Temple of Solomon on the model prophesied by Ezekiel.
    “This re-building, formally predicted by the Judaizing Mystics of the earlier ages, had become the secret dream of the Patriarchs of the Orient. The Temple of Solomon, re-built and consecrated to the Catholic worship would become, in effect, the Metropolis of the Universe.”

    Protestant churches that have stop protesting, Evangelical seminaries have stop teaching truth, religious broadcaster, TV evangelists, religious writers, teachers, and preachers who promote the rapture have been seduced by Jesuits theology and manipulated by the kabbalist practitioners, thus they are part of the world-wide Anti-protestant, anti-reformation, and Anti-Christ conspiracy.

    Is Modern Israel in Bible Prophecy?

    Millions expect Israel to play a major role in God’s future plan for earth. Could they all be wrong? Is there a conspiracy to deceive God’s people? What is the Biblical evidence concerning modern day Israel?

    Many people today consider the restoration of the Jewish nation in Palestine to be a direct and dramatic fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

    Hal Lindsey’s The Late Great Planet Earth, a phenomenal best seller of the last few decades, and Jerry Jenkins and Tim Lahaye’s Lift Behind, along with Bishop T.D. Jakes declares that the end of the world will come within the lifetime of the generation that saw the founding of the Israeli state in 1948, hereby applying the words of Jesus: “This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” (Matthew 24:34)

    Coupled with this fascination with Israel is a novel teaching regarding the return of Jesus, called the “secret rapture.” These books and many other speaks for many today who expect God secretly to take the “church” to heaven prior to the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple on its old site where the sacred Muslim shrine, the Dome of the Rock, now stands. According to this position, after the “church” is “raptured” to heaven, there will be seven years of the worst period of famine, bloodshed, and pestilence ever experienced by man. During this great tribulation the focus will be on God’s dealings with the Jews, who are again given the responsibility for the evangelization of the world.

    According to secret-rapture preachers, the battle of Armageddon will climax the end of the seven-year tribulation as the nations of the earth take sides over the future of Israel. When mankind teeters on the brink of incinerating the world, Jesus will return gloriously and save man from self-extinction. At that time Jesus will set up a literal one-thousand-year reign on earth with Jerusalem functioning as the spiritual capital of the world.

    Most evangelical periodicals and pulpits teach this view today, and to those who do not know better, it might appear that this prophetic scenario, known as pretribulationism, has been the traditional teaching of the Christian church since New Testament days. Nothing is further from the truth. Be not deceived.. Did the architects of the creation of modern day Israel have any thing to do with the development of the rapture theory? Where did the Rapture theology originate? Is the crisis in the Middle East and the war in the Iraq have anything to do with the erroneous rapture theory?

    Is there a master conspiracy at work

    According to dispensationalists John Hagee, Jack van Impe, Ken Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, John Walvoord, Grant Jefferies, Jesse Duplantis, Dave Hunt, Missler, Tim Lahaye, Benny Hinn, Clarence Larkin, H. Caldwell, TD Jakes and others who teach and preach about the Rapture, Israel has two dispensations, or time periods, in which they functions as God’s special instrument of salvation. Between these two periods of time comes the dispensation of the “church”. The church received a heavenly reward at the time of the rapture, while Israel received an earthly reward at the end of the tribulation.

    There is no support in the New Testament for such an erroneous view.
    The chief reason why the modern state of Israel has no prophetic significance is that after the Jews as a body rejected Jesus as the Messiah, God gave to the Christian church the special privileges, responsibilities, and prerogatives once assigned to the ancient Jews. No longer were the Jews to be His special people with a prophetic destiny.
    Rom.2:28 For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; vs.29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.
    All the promises of a glorious kingdom on earth once given through the Jewish prophets to the Jewish people became void because the Jewish people as a nation did not fulfill the conditions of these prophecies. Failing to receive the glory that could have been Israel’s is probably the saddest story in literature. Placed at the crossroads of the ancient world, God furnished them with every facility for becoming the greatest nation on the earth. God wanted to reward Israel with every physical and spiritual blessing as they put into practice the clear-cut principles that He had graciously taught them through His prophets (Deuteronomy 7, 8, 28).
    The Old Testament records the sad story of how the vineyard of Israel produced, not the mature fruit of a Christ-like character, but “wild grapes,” a misinterpretation and perversion of what the God of Israel was really like. “What more was there to do for my vineyard, that I have not done in it? When I looked for it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes?” (Isaiah 5:4 RSV).

    Even when the Jewish nation was suffering the bitter consequences of disobedience during the Babylonian captivity, God mercifully promised that a restored Israel was possible and that there was yet time to recover its special role as His representative on earth - if it would honor His law and submit to His principles. Even then the Jews could have become, if faithful, the head and not the tail, in matters physical and spiritual; all nations would have looked upon Jerusalem as not only the center of wisdom but also the spiritual capital of the world (see Isaiah 45:14; 60:1 - 11).
    When the Jews returned to Palestine after the Babylonian captivity, the promises given to Abraham and expanded through the writings of Moses and other prophets would have been fulfilled; the whole earth would have been alerted for the first advent of Christ, even as the way is being prepared for His second coming today.
    Missed Their Last Opportunity.
    These Old Testament prophecies that picture Israel dwelling in peace and prosperity, with all nations beating a path to her doors, could have been fulfilled 2000 years ago if they had indeed prepared the world for the first coming of Jesus (see Zechariah 8:14). But instead of fulfilling their greatest assignment they missed their last opportunity, and Jesus their Lord finally had to pronounce with irrevocable judgement: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not Behold your house is forsaken and desolate” (Matthew 23:37, 38 RSV).
    Those who regard the establishment of the modern state of Israel as a fulfillment of those Old Testament prophecies overlook the fact that these promises were made either prior to their release from Babylonian captivity or during the rebuilding days soon after their return. God would have fulfilled these promises if Israel had been faithful and obedient to the conditions on which the promises were made.
    Although God promised a “second chance” to Israel after their failure leading up to the Babylonian captivity, He promised no “third chance” to them after their final rejection when their Lord Himself “came to his own home, and his own people received him not” (John 1:11 RSV)
    But God did not give up, even though Israel as a nation had failed Him. Although corporate Israel no longer was to function as God’s special agent, the individual Jews who received and obeyed Jesus Christ would constitute the new organization through which He would now work.
    Paul describes this remarkable transition in Romans 9 to 11, where he appeals to individual Jews (such as himself) to respond to God through Jesus, join those Gentiles who have found in Him the solution to their anxious, sinful condition, and together arouse the world to the simple fact that God wants to make an end to sin and its misery by setting up His eternal kingdom composed of those who have found in Jesus the promised Saviour.
    Those who preach and teach this erroneous Rapture doctrine are purposely misleading multitudes. This doctrine was created by the Jesuits as an anti-reformation and anti-protestant tool to divert attention away from the Catholic and the Pope whom the reformers had identify as the anti-Christ in Revelation. Those who teach and preach the rapture theory are proxies and agents for the Kabbalists and those who want to establish a New World Order (NWO). The Rapture theory has more to do with politics than theology, more to do with mans involvement in world affairs than Gods involvement, more about Zionism than the people of Zion. I will discuss this later.

    The large majority of modern Jews in the world is of Eastern European - and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar - origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term "anti-Semitism" would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims.The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated. (Arthur Koestler,

    The Thirteenth Tribe: Origin of Modern-day Jews

    Arthur Koestler documents the Caucasian ancestry of Ashkenazim Jews. TheThirteenthTribe. The Khazar Empire and its Heritage. Arthur Koestler. Mr. Koestler speculates about the ultimate faith of the Khazars and their impact on the racial composition and social heritage of modern Jewry. He produces a large body of meticulously detailed research in support of a theory that sounds all the more convincing for the restraint with which it is advanced. Yet should this theory be confirmed, the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, since, as Mr. Koestler writes, it is based “on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.

    The vast majority of Jews in the world is of Eastern European – and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar – origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. Maybe the two world wars and the Holocaust were pretext for the New Khazaria or Israel hoax.The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.(Arthur Koestler,The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 17).

    Old Khazaria existed from about 500 A.D. to about1000 A.D.

    Old Khazaria adopted the religion of Talmudic Judaismabout 740 A.D.

    Khazaria was reborn on May 14, 1948.

    The most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.

    New Khazaria.

    As long as Apostate Israel (New Khazaria) exist…there will never be any peace in the Middle East. Modern-day Jewry is of Eastern European/Aryan descent and thus they are not Semitic. Let the truth be told everywhere. Why should American Soldiers die to protect a Hoax?
