It’s a Shame before God! Long time born again spirit filled members of the City of Praise were kicked out the week before last. They were sent letters telling them not to come back to the church and they can not come onto the property. Long time elders, deacons and members were among those who received letters . This was an attempt to silence those who disagree with them and support Pastor Joel Peebles.

This board absolutely has no fear of God, do they? They are so corrupted by power and money. I am glad to see Pastor Joel handling this with love and dignity. We really have to pray for the spirit of control that has overtaken these churches. God is not pleased and He continues to give us warning after warning and yet people continue doing what is right in their own eyes. Be not deceived God is not mocked whatsoever a man soweth that also shall he reap. Keep the faith brothers and sisters!
These people did not like the Pastor. They envied her. It is unconsciousnable that they would think that the people of God who helped built and paid for the church and campus would believe that the Pastor was in her right mind to leave them in charge. Psalm 37 admonishes God’s people to Fret not thyself because of evildoers , neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed . Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass . And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass .Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil . For evildoers shall be cut off : but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming . The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken . A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken : but the LORD upholdeth the righteous. The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied . But the wicked shall perish , and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume ; into smoke shall they consume away.
God is laughing!
