Dr. Myles Munroe
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.

There have been several developments within the past 90 days that have occurred in our fight to return our Landover (Jericho) campus. It is important to note that Apostle Betty Peebles died in October 2010. The self-appointed employee board filed suit against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows days after Apostle Betty Peebles died and before she was buried. The congregation has filed 4 suits against the self-appointed board. The congregation WON the records case and we now have both Corporate and personal bank records. The self-elected board has dragged these cases on for over FOUR (4) years. They have used our tithes and offerings to pay their lawyers. The only ones benefiting from this is the lawyers. There are currently four (4) active cases. The statute of limitations has run out. There can be no new cases. They have run out of tricks and have boxed themselves in. They have avoided a jury trial for four years. Their day of reckoning is rapidly approaching. It is imperative that we pray for the souls that will be displaced. It seems that they have stuck their heads in the sand. Everyone knows that their days are numbered but them.
Summary Judgment: a court order ruling when a judge determines that there are no disputed material issues of fact in a case, and the side asking for it is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. As used here, “material issues of fact” refers to any facts that could allow a fact-finder to decide against one side. If the motion is granted, there will be no trial.
First Case: Court of Special Appeals Maryland. The Appeal for the Articles Case: This case was granted a summary judgment by Judge Jackson on 2/4/2014. We filed an appeal to the Court of Special Appeals. The Jericho six (the Defendants) filed a motion to Dismiss the case.
Second Case: The DC Court Case 2013 CA 007115 in DC Superior Court, Robert George, ET AL. V Clarence Jackson ET AL.: The Jericho Six, filed a Motion to Dismiss the case on 12/03/13.
Third Case: Jericho Baptist Church Ministries, Inc. V. Joel R. Peebles Sr. and Chairman William Meadows: The Jericho Six, filed a motion for Summary Judgment on June 2, 2014, the hearing was held on October 2, 2014
Fourth Case: The Federal Case Action Pending
The Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge
The Honorable Dwight D. Jackson – Judge – 7th Judicial Circuit
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.

“We are extremely confident that when the upcoming court proceedings in the district and other jurisdictions are concluded, they will prove that the board of trustees which has been in place for over 40 years under Bishop James & Apostle Betty Peebles-and now Bishop Joel & Pastor Ylawnda Peebles-is the true board. “ DC CASE 2013 CA 007115 Robert George, ET AL. V Clarence Jackson ET AL. filed in the District of Columbia Superior Court on October 15, 2013 is in the final discovery phase and headed towards trial in the late fall.
“The employees, who asserted themselves during the prolonged season of illness of Apostle Betty Peebles, are unauthorized and illegal. At this point there is no final court order that gives the employees governing control, therefore any actions these employees take will inevitably be deemed void.”
