Amos 9:13-15The Message (MSG)

13-15 “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.

“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:

“They’ll rebuild their ruined cities.
They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine.
They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.
And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land.
They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”DSC_5479

DMV turnout much lower than expected for Jericho Installation

On Sunday September 7, 2014 Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Alfred Owens and Pastor John Jenkins gathered at the Jericho city of Praise for the installation of their newest hireling Jasmin Sculark.

The installation of the 3rd hireling brought in by the illegitimate board of trustees now at Jericho was a ploy by the six to try to legitimize their church and board and make Dr. Jazz the front man for their illegal  organization. The six self-appointed employee board were so desperate to get someone to fill the seats that they offered Dr. Jazz the job with a reported salary in the neighborhood of $300,000 a year without having seen a resume, application, candidates letter.  Jazz stated during the installation  “I did not submit a resume,  candidates letter, had never done scripture, or prayed in the church.  The first time I stepped in the pulpit was as Pastor Select.”  She was not voted in by the members of Jericho because the 6 trustees are the only voting members.   Despite bringing in local mega-church  pastors John Jenkins, Bishop and Co-Pastor Susie Owens and the heavy hitter T.D. Jakes it was evidently clear by the turn out yesterday that the DMV was not feeling the hype nor the smoke and mirrors and was not buying what they were selling.  It is reported that it cost approximately $70 to $80,000.00 to bring in T.D. Jakes to hype up an event.   Having in attendance two local mega-Pastors, plus members from the Shilow Baptist Church York, PA, plus people from Trinidad, other local pastors who want to be in Jake’s shadow, along with the regular TD takes groupies, numerous PR firms, TV Ads, Radio Ads, numerous online invitations for everybody & anybody plus the TD Jakes name brand, could not fill up the church building.

                 The takeaways here:

1. Educated Christians in the DMV with discernment saw right thru this PR move.  2. People in the DMV know that the six (6) supposed board members (Dr. Jazz’s bosses) reek with the stench of foul play and financial impropriety.  3. Discerning Christians know that – Doing the right thing in the wrong season is still wrong.  4. In the  DMV you can’t force feed discerning Christians the same old soup and expect them to swallow it.  5. We in the DMV have seen this play before, look up the Paula White appointment.

Now the show is over and Jericho is still facing four (4) active legal cases that will return the church and it’s assets to the people whose tithes and offerings built it and nurtured it.

The DMV did not show up as expected to support Dr. Jasmin Sculark’s installation.  Dispite a full court press Public relations campaign and media blitz which included, TV. radio, Newspapers, digital magazine, social media.

AT2W Writes An Article On: Lesbianism in the Black Church

The Jericho City Of Praise Self-Appointed, Unelected, Employee Board’s hireling Dr. Jasmin Sculark is featured in this article from AT2W Blog.

Lesbianism In The Black Church Revealed

What Do You Know About Lesbianism In The Black Church?

What Do You Know About Lesbianism In The Black Church?

When people hear about gays in the Black Church they automatically think it’s the ‘gay black man’. When in fact, it is the number of Black lesbians in the Black church that’s alarming. Many won’t believe the amount of lesbians that’s in Black churches… from the Pastor’s wife on down. Okay, so let’s see…you have Pastor’s wives that’s a lesbian, the Usher, the Sunday School Teacher, etc. Lesbianism is just as bad as gay men in the Black church, but society treats as if lesbianism doesn’t exist in the church. Why is this though? Is it because the “gay Black man” is more noticeable because of his feminine ways? Is it because the Black community stigmatize the male choir director or musician as the gay ones?

Sadly, to say the Black church is more acceptable of lesbians within our churches. However, we shouldn’t be as closed minded about this issue. We should treat lesbianism in harmony as  much as we criticize and judge gay men in Black churches. So, let’s be real now…there are a host of female Pastor’s that display ‘butch like’ tendencies, but we continue to look over the obvious. Am I telling the truth or what? For example you have Black female Pastor’s such as: Dr. Jasmin Schulark, Bishop Allyson Nelson, and Bishop Yvette Flunder just to name a few that either has admitted that they are indeed a lesbian and/or displays lesbianism tendencies.

C’mon Black church people…..if we are going to judge, criticize,  and rebuke the Black gay man in our Black churches, then we shouldn’t have a problem doing the same to lesbian Pastors either.

November 2014 City of Praise Legal Update

Legal Update 1

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.

Dictionary:

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.
