Biblically Bold And Truthful Statements About Sexual Immorality Issues Affecting Believers In Jesus
FEBRUARY 2, 2015

The Danger Of Lesbianism Leadership In The Christian Church

As some of you may know, Jericho City of Praise in Maryland has a new pastor installed by members of a Board. The battle in the courts between the Board and Bishop Joel Peebles continues. The newly installed pastor at Jericho, Dr. Jasmin Sculark, also known as “Dr. Jazz,” has a very charismatic presence.

On a side note, in an attempt to be neutral and objective, the appearance of Sculark becoming pastor at Jericho is extremely questionable. I could be mistaken about this but it appears that the Board is seeking legitimacy by installing a pastor to appear that it is business as usual, attempting to be normal. It’s especially questionable when it appears that there is already a pastor in place after the passing of Betty Peebles. I do not know everything as God does, however, if I were asked to pastor a church that has unresolved legal challenges regarding who is supposed to be the pastor, wisdom dictates that you decline the offer. If there is grace from God, not from Jakes or any high profile Bishop or Pastor, I’d wait until the final earthly ruling is indisputably made. You allow the two parties exhaust all legal challenges until a ruling is reached by the courts. Even after a ruling, sometimes people will become unruly.

Even before relief from the courts is sought and achieved, if there is no grace to pastor that church as God’s set person, preachers should be careful not to interfere or intrude, or they will end in disgrace.

In a non objective statement I’m about to make, while we do not know everything, one certain participant in this debate over Jericho City Of Praise, I believe, and I could be wrong, was severely judged by God with an illness that brought that person to the brink of death.

That’s one mega reason to steer clear and let God have His way.

If it were me, I would not dare think about walking into a minefield with an identifying sign saying “STEP HERE” on each mine.

Finally, on this subject, watch the tree and the fruit of Sculark. If there is no good fruit, it’s time to scoot.

Sadly, people will eat bad fruit from a bad tree and look at you square in the face and say that it is good fruit, and offer you a bite.

According to certain sources, there has been some serious statements alleging her sexual preference.

Bluntly, lesbianism.

Unless I am missing it, there seems to be no denial about these allegations from Dr. Sculark.

In 2012, the Ugandan government made a very powerful stand as a government to outlaw homosexuality.

On the Robert F. Kennedy website, there is a letter, signed by 30 pastors that support LGBT’s agenda to urge the Ugandan government to rescind their laws.

One signature that is of note is Sculark who at the time was the pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church in York, PA.

In the OT, Shiloh, if you recall, was the place where the Ark of the Covenant was taken by the Philistines because of the sexual immorality of the sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas.

Be careful about naming your church after Shiloh.

The letter and the signatures of these pastors can be read here.

There were several high profile leaders at the installation of Dr. Sculark. Most notably, Bishop T.D. Jakes of The Potters House in Dallas TX. His involvement, endorsement, and presence at this installation cannot be overlooked, swept under the rug, masked, or hidden behind great oratorical skill.

When sin is not crucified at the cross, ultimately it will destroy the person.

Sin is acceptable in the pulpit because it is unchecked in the heart of man.

Her signature is not evidence in and of itself that Sculark is a homosexual, however, when you support the sin of homosexuality by signing a letter, you are already an enemy of the cross of Christ. To be on the side of homosexuality is to be against God. The Ugandan government took extreme measures to protect its people from the destructive forces of homosexuality. It underscores the fact that when people run from the Gospel of Jesus Christ to help deliver people from the destruction of sin, either the government will allow sin to run its course and destroy them, or take decisive action.

There is a serious undercurrent that many in the Body of Christ is not paying attention to.

The undercurrent of lesbianism in the Christian Church.

Powerful women of influence is cropping up faster than a comet. Not every woman is a practicing homosexual or sympathetic to the LGBT agenda in support of the sin of homosexuality. However, you have to be very watchful. Behind the scenes we are seeing a general acceptance of homosexuality.

It is now front and center.

The dangers of homosexual leadership, be it male or female is as result of permitting the sin of adultery, fornication, porn, masturbation, and bisexuality go unchecked. It is the doctrine of devils and seducing spirits. It is the bed of fornication in the city of Babylon that many professed believers are in.

This is a stench before God.

No sin will go unpunished.

When man rejects the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to set men and women free, there is only one place where sin and practitioners of sin must go.

The lake which burns with fire and brimstone.

Until there is a clear renunciation of this signature. Unless there is a clear declaration of renunciation of the sin of homosexuality from those that profess to be pastors and bishops. Unless there is a clear reversal of those that signed that document, their ministry, at best, is suspect.

Even those that are connected in any way with Sculark, namely Jakes and others, their ministry is suspect if they refuse to vehemently renounce the sin of homosexuality.

Either you are for the Lord or you are against Him. If you are lukewarm, you will not last another second in the mouth of Jesus. If you are a professed believer, you must make your choice. God gives space for people to repent. However, for some, space is limited. There is not much sand left in the hour glass. For when that last grain slips through, the law of gravity will not be denied.

For some, we will see that time is up.

They have already slipped into eternity.

For others, they will live out their days and it will be a testimony to them that God was gracious to give you time to repent, but you failed to take advantage of the grace of God to repent.

Watch where you go to attend church services and watch who you are hooked up with. Watch who your leaders are hooked up with. Bad connections yield more bad connections. Sin is not “ok.” Look at the destructive forces behind sin. It should be a deterrent to commit or permit sin in the local church. Have an “I don’t care” attitude about sin, and you will die in your sins. There is no middle ground or compromise. Otherwise, the death of Jesus for our sins is in vain.

If your pastor or bishop doesn’t take a clear stand against ALL sin, including the sin of homosexuality according to LGBT, you are in danger and in jeopardy. Psalm 1 is the clear demarcation.

Walk in the counsel of the ungodly, stand in the way of sinners, sitting in the seat of mockers, and you will be burned.

As far as women in the ministry is concerned, we must be very careful about the fruit that manifests. The gift of gab is not the call to preach. Just because you sound anointed, it doesn’t mean that you are anointed. The evidence of ministry is not in charisma. The fruit must be present. Good trees produce good fruit. Bad trees produce bad fruit.

You can’t preach about Jesus and live in the very sin that Jesus died to set us free from.

You can’t preach about holiness and live in sin. You can’t talk about salvation if you are still in the burning building.

Be very careful of the spirit of compromise. If there is an exception to the Bible preached in the pulpit, it is a dead giveaway that a pastor is compromised and honor wickedness over holiness.

 

Recently Discovered Video Showing A Prophecy by Dr. Myles Munroe over Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.

Dr. Myles Munroe

myles-munroe 2

Dr. Myles Monroe told Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr. 23 years ago the difficulties that he was to endure and the outcome. This video is from a 1992 revival service where Dr. Myles Munroe was the guest speaker at Jericho Baptist Church on Douglas St in N.E. Washington, DC. Dr. Munroe prophesied over Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.  He first spoke to him off mic and said to him that, “the enemy would put obstacles in your way but you should not worry.  You’ll have the victory through them all. You will go through great pain and a difficult season.  But at the end you will recover everything.”   Dr. Munroe then shouted for him to receive it.  Note that the information was difficult for Bishop Joel to receive. Also notice in the video that after Dr. Myles Monroe laid hands on Bishop Joel that his father the late Bishop James Peebles Sr. knelt down at his son’s feet along with Dr. Myles Munroe’s armor bearer. The prophecy that he gave on mic at the end of the video is powerful.

Second Request For A Summary Judgment Could Land Local Judge In Hot Water

The Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge

The Honorable  Dwight D. Jackson – Judge – 7th Judicial Circuit

jacksonphoto

It’s not surprising that a vast number of people in Prince Georges County have lost faith in the judicial system and believe that the court system is broken. 

 

On Thursday October 2, 2014 the parties to the case  JERICHO BAPTIST CHURCH MINISTRIES,INC. v.,  JOEL R. PEEBLES SR. are scheduled to appear in court. They will be there to address the ridiculous request by the Six Rogue Employees for the Judge to issue a second Summary Judgment in this case.  The six(6), self-appointed employees at Jericho are asking Prince Georges County Circuit Court Judge Dwight D. Jackson to join them and circumvent (break) the law, by not following the Maryland Court Of Special Appeals decision.   If Judge Dwight D. Jackson is bold enough to disregard the higher courts ruling and grant the six employees request for a second summary judgment he will be violating a court order which is the same as breaking the law.  He will show himself to be  an unjust judge and an unfit judge. What’s interesting is that in the past Judge Jackson has made his rulings behind closed doors a few days before the scheduled court date.

  WAS BISHOP JOEL R. PEEBLES SR., A  MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES  IN MARCH 2009? THIS IS THE ONLY QUESTION THAT THE COURT WILL ANSWER.  IT’S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. BISHOP JOEL PEEBLES HAS NUMEROUS DOCUMENTS SHOWING THAT HE WAS A  MEMBER OF THE BOARD.

 On June 20, 2014 the unelected self-appointed, board of 6 employees who are temporarily occupying the Jericho Landover, MD facility filed another motion for Summary judgment in the case that they filed against Bishop Joel Peebles and William Meadows 4 days after Apostle Betty died.   This move by the 6 and their lawyers is astonishing, brazen and contemptuous on all levels.

 A summary judgment is when a decision is made without a trial. “If a material fact is disputed by both sides, then the court is prohibited from granting a summary judgment.  Thus, in opposing a summary judgment, it is not necessary to show that you win on the issue.  It is only necessary that you show that a genuine as opposed to a frivolous, issue of fact exists.”  To overcome a summary judgment you only need to prove that there is a disputed fact.

October 25, 2011, Judge Dwight Jackson granted the six employees a summary judgment against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows.  Bishop Joel and our board filed an appeal to the court of Special Appeals who ruled that “… “[T]he purpose of summary judgment is to determine whether there are facts in dispute that must be resolved through a more formal dispute resolution process, a trial on the merits. . . . It is not the purpose of summary judgment to resolve issues of material fact.”Md. 21 1, 229-30 (2003) (emphasis added)’Returning to the instant case, appellees, we conclude that the circuit court erred in granting motion for summary judgment because a genuine dispute of material fact exists as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board.   …. In concluding that appellant Peebles was not elected as a Board member, the circuit court engaged in fact-finding, which is not a function permitted of a trial court when making a determination on summary judgment …. Because a genuine dispute of material fact existed as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board, we reverse summary judgment as to both appellants and remand for further Proceedings.

In short, Judge Jackson wrongly granted the motion for summary judgment in the original trial because there WAS a disputed fact as to whether or not Pastor Joel was a member of the Board of Trustees.  It is not for a judge to decide issues of fact, that’s done by a jury.  A jury is the only appropriate fact finders in a courtroom.  The Court of Special Appeals reversed Judge Jackson decision. (The six employees are NOT the legal board) and sent it back (remand) to the lower court.  The six employees then filed an appeal to the court of Appeals which is the highest court in Maryland who declined to hear the case.

The case is now back before Judge Dwight D. Jackson. The six employees are asking Judge Jackson to make the exact same ruling that the Court of Special Appeals said was done in error. The fact that the six employees and their lawyers  think that they can manipulate a judge and get him to go against what a higher court (Court of Special Appeals) has ordered  casts a bad light on the Prince Georges County judicial system.   This shows the level of contempt that they have for the judicial system.  These questions beg to be answered- Why are these so called Christians attempting to manipulate the legal system? Are they above the law? Why are they trying to avoid a jury?  The world is watching.
