WHY All The 'Talk' About 'Jezebel?'

I remember when Juanita Bynum came out with her teaching on 'the jezebel spirit' back in the 1990's.  It was at World Harvest Church.  

BOY!!!!  EVERYBODY was SOOO into this teaching...

I don't think anyone else had ever broached the 'topic' or 'teaching' on jezebel before Bynum.  If they did, no one ever heard of them until THIS WOMAN got in THIS pulpit in Columbus, Ohio and preached her heart out about what she believed to be the 'spirit of jezebel.'

I was on the bandwagon, too.  Hung on every word this woman hollered, proclaimed, taught, prophesied, etc.

WORE this VHS OUT!  (Thats how old this teaching IS!)

All of a sudden, different 'variations' of  the jezebel teaching started popping up throughout churchdom.  

Over 20 years later, folks STILL hollering about what they perceive to be 'the jezebel spirit.'  

Every week, someone else claims to have some sort of 'revelation' on the 'jezebel spirit.'

If you listened to these pulpiteers and pulpit PUPPETS, it would almost seem like God is saying NOTHING else about ANYTHING else ..... EXCEPT JEZEBEL!!!!!! LOL!!!!!

Now...knowing God the way that I do, I do know that God WILL speak to and teach His people.  He will reveal things to those who seek Him.

But God has no need nor any desire to repeat Himself.

Now FOLKS may WANT Him to repeat Himself...b/c they have a HARD time believing what He said THE FIRST TIME.  

Folks have been mimicing and re-packaging 'the jezebel doctrine' for over 20 years....and it's REALLY sad!

Because from Bynum ALLLLLL the way down to what you read on jezebel just a FEW MINUTES AGO is TOTALLY WRONG and ERRONEOUS!

That's right!

PSA:  THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In my ebook, '"The Fruits of Azusa,' I explained the origin of MOST doctrines that are being taught in the 'church' today.

Sad to say, the 'jezebel spirit' is one thing I did NOT cover...not in detail anyways....

But it definitely IS a FALSE TEACHING/DOCTRINE that is floating around in the church systems.

Let these puppets and pulpiteers tell you, jezebel is just so powerful and has so much 'control' over people, that now all of sudden folks have no sense of right or wrong, good or bad.  No accountability.  Can't hear from God from themselves.  Can't do NOTHING!

It's ALL jezebel's fault!!!!! LOL!

NO...ITS YOUR FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THAT'S RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So many charismatics and religious folks like to 'blame the devil' and 'a spirit' on just about everything....if they sin, the first thing they wanna cry is -Like Flip Wilson used to say - THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT!'

When it was nobody but YOU!  Nobody but ME!

If a person decides to sin, it's because THEY WANTED TO!!!!!  PERIOD.

No spirit 'overtook' a person and made them do A THING!

But instead of taking RESPONSIBILITY for one's own actions, owning up to it, church people (in particular) LOVE to blame the spirit world and the devil for ERR'THANG!

Imma leave that alone for a sec...and get in the Word.  Cuz some of you religious spirits ain't gonna hear me unless I throw some chapters and verses up in there!


NOW, Go read 1 King 16...that's the first mention in the Word of God of Queen Jezebel.

Now some cultural references...

Folks like to make like jezebel was this fine, made - up sister who had all the men salivating at the mouth.  Many a religious man has made her out to be the epitome of seduction and provocativeness.  Some of the most beautiful actresses in the world have played jezebel, including Bette Davis and Elizabeth Taylor.


The demonization of the (beautiful) woman has been a stigma within the church system for centuries.  The very thing that made the woman attractive to the opposite sex (THE MALE) has been twisted around and turned into 'a demonic spirit' by the religious right...mostly men....who are for the most part- afraid of their own sexuality and prowess...and their attraction to the opposite sex.

Couple that with insecure, homely, frightened, thirsty females (replete within the oppressive church system) who thrive for the attention of the male...especially and in particular, any male that actually HAS (or FEIGNS to have/fakes the funk) authority in the 'spiritual/religious' realm.  For some reason, females flock to these types of men within the oppressive church culture.

When these men come across a (beautiful) female that TRULY has authority, truly is beautiful...these men will go to no lengths to have her.  They are attracted to her...they MUST have her.

Then after they marry her, get her, then they tire of her, discard her...and then DEMONIZE her!

When the real demon is in the MEN that perpetuate this stereotype of the woman (whether it be Eve, Jezebel, Rahab, etc.) is the reason the man continues to fall.

Time really prevents me from citing all the examples in the bible where a woman was demonized by the religious system, ostracized, cast out....

But the very ones that religious men went to great lengths to demonize and ostracize were the VERY ONES Jesus Christ of Nazareth ACCEPTED.  REVEALED HIMSELF TO FIRST.  USED THEM TO BRING THE WORD TO THE 'MEN.'  (Remember Mary Magdalene?  Who had all kinds of demons...?  Til God got ahold of her...then she was the first one who saw Jesus Christ RESURRECTED!  And then she went and TOLD the scary apostles the good news...while they were sitting around sulking and crying ....thinking that Jesus had left them!)

Yall remembered the woman at the well?

When Jesus Christ of Nazareth revealed himself to HER (first), SHE went and told THE MEN in the city about JESUS!!!!

It would seem to me that God has a tendency to speak to women MUCH more than He does the men.  

Not saying He does not....all I'm saying is that God indeed uses the foolish things of the world to confound THE WISE.

For all the insecure religious men (and some women) out there, let me reassure you.

God DOES use the foolish to confound the (religiously) wise!

God uses beautiful women, as well as homely ones.  Married women, as well as single ones.  Fat women and skinny women.  Women who go to church...and women who don't.  Women WITH a reputation...and women who HIDE their sins!  (You caught that, uh?  LOL)

But anyway...so as to keep the attention of the chapter and verse seekers, I will go into the word even more....to show you that there is NO such thing as a SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL!



There is only one time in the Word of God where the spirit of someone who lived before is actually referred to as something that is 'transferred' (for lack of a better term) to the people.

The Spirit of Elijah 

BOTH times the Spirit of Elijah was mentioned was in the Old Testament.

Do you know what that means?

Ever heard of necromancy?  Consulting the spirits of dead folks for 'revelation, spiritual insight, wisdom, info on the future?'  

ALL of that was strictly forbidden in the Word of God.  

Yet they got folks that have developed major church doctrines on consulting with, relating to, transferring spirits of, the whole mantles' doctrine....of dead saints!!!!!

HMMMM, let's see...what other religion/church does that?

Could it be the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH?????  St Mary, St Peter, St Paul....etc?

We protestants love to stone catholics on how they consult to and pray to dead saints...but charismatics and pentecostals been worshiping jezebel for over 20 years now!!!!!

How so????

Juanita Bynum made up a doctrine about the spirit of jezebel...based very loosely upon several OT scriptures and Revelations 2:20....and while YES, God mentions jezebel having SOME influence over A church-the church SPECIFICALLY AT THYATIRA- not a group of churches...

Nowhere in the Word of God do I see this 'spirit of jezebel' having so much power over the church as most make it out today!!!!!

The Word of God does not EVER elude to or even mentions a 'spirit of jezebel' having such massive influence over the 'entire body of christ' as some would elude to.

So what's with all this teaching on jezebel???????

I wholeheartedly believe that (I still believe in the existence of the devil, btw) that the enemy is trying to scare a WHOLE lot of folks into believing that a woman...or the spirit of a DEAD woman at that, is somehow the cause of the 'overthrow and downfall of the church.'


The jezebel that is mentioned in Rev. 2:20 only affected that ONE church.  The church at Thyatira ...which is now modern day Akhisar, Turkey.

Not Christianity!  Or the western church!

Now I understand that the seven churches God spoke to in the Book of Revelations...some seem to think that He was somehow speaking to seven types of churches.  

Again, let's look at the Queen Jezebel...all these things described in Rev. 2:20 were things Jezebel actually did during her reign.  BUT the reason why her influence (and I DO want to emphasize the word INFLUENCE, NOT spirit!)

 The reason why jezebel's influence somehow seeped down from generation to generation was NOT b/c the so-called 'spirit of jezebel' was so powerful and what not.

It was because the RELIGIOUS culture of Judaizers and the religious people kept her influence ALIVE within the religious culture!!!!!!

Those entrapped within the religious systems of men LOVE to iconize and idolize people who they deem powerful -whether that be powerful in a good way, or powerful in a bad way.

Then they deitize them and make them out to be gods...or spirits.  Somehow to keep the spirits of those who they admire, emulate, and worship alive...forever.

Which is really sad...because the ONLY one whose 'spirit' we should ALL seek to emulate and worship is the SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD!!!!!

Now, my saying these things does not mean I don't believe in the reality of the enemy or the demonic...I DO.

BUT, calling everything a 'spirit of this' and a 'spirit of that' where the Word of God is absolutely SILENT....?  That is EXTRA BIBLICAL nonsense!!!!!

It is ERROR.
It is leading millions ASTRAY!

The enemy LOVES to blame others for his foolishness....he loves it that millions of church folks are blaming the spirit of a dead woman for the 'demise' of the modern day church as it is known.

How CRAZY does THAT sound???

And let's take it a STEP further:  if 'the spirit of jezebel' has THAT much control over YOUR churches, WHERE IS THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD??????

Could it possibly mean that the church as YOU know that YOU were born into, that YOU were baptized into, that you became a MEMBER OF, has been under the CONTROL of ANOTHER SPIRIT....

ALL ALONG???????????

That NEVER crossed your minds...has it??????

Maybe THAT'S why you are so fascinated with 'jezebel?'

That's why you KEEP raising up teachers that teach yall this GARBAGE...?

It feeds into your sense of religiosity and superstition.

The enemy has been in charge of your churches since their inception....and HE has set up gods ....

Get your attention NOT on Jesus Christ of Nazareth...but on jezebel, and ahab, and leviathian (and I mean...what the HECK is a leviathian, anyways/?????  A DRAGON????)

On a python?  I have heard SOOO many teachings on the spirit of this and the spirit of that....giving spirits to animals and the such.  When animals DO NOT even have SOULS..OR SPIRITS!!!!

So WHERE are these teachings coming from?

Go read your old testament...the religious there LOVED to deitize animals and give spiritual significance and power to animals...I guess b/c they were the ones being sacrificed at the altars for the sins of the people...who knows!

But GOD is NOT pleased with this practice!

Worshiping the creature MORE than the CREATOR ....WHO IS blessed forever!!!!

Worship is not just singing Isreal Haughton or Fred Hammond...

Yall worship jezebel by putting these idiots in the pulpit that keep feeding you this JUNK on how powerful jezebel is...and running to conferences based solely upon exposing the spirit...of a DEAD woman???!!!

Listen to how crazy that sounds!!!!

And one more thing...

HOW is it that most of you cannot even STAND Juanita Bynum...talk about her like a DOG....

But you STILL upholding teachings she gave 20 yrs ago????

Yall call her crazy, delusional, a witch, a jezebel...everything but a child of God....but YOU STILL recycling her teachings...??

Repackaging it and making it sound it came from YOU???????

When GOD Is Giving A Whooping, You BEST Move Out the Way!!!!!

Do y'all remember when coming up-those of us who had siblings-and how when they would misbehave?  And then mama or daddy would get the switch or the belt and start tearing their butts UP?

And -especially if you're an older sibling, and you KNOW the pain their feeling as they are getting their butts beat-you feel SO bad for them?

But as bad as you felt for them, you KNEW better than to intervene in that whipping?  

You knew NOT to go to mama or daddy and say a THING while they are getting whipped!

Because you KNEW if you did - heck, even if you were in the same ROOM as them while they are getting whipped - you KNEW you were gonna be NEXT?

You didn't quite understand it coming up.  You thought mama or daddy was being extra mean or something when they'd tear your hide, too...

Maybe it was for covering for the sibling when you KNOW they did wrong....
Maybe it was because you had the audacity to try and STOP the beating!
Maybe you lied about YOUR PART in the wrong doing...

Whatever the reason was, you BOTH got your tails beat.  GOOD!

Ever wonder WHY that happened????

Hebrews 12:10-12

Our human parents disciplined us for a little while, as it seemed best to them, but God does it for our benefit so that we can share his holiness.

No discipline is fun while it lasts, but it seems painful at the time. Later, however, it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness for those who have been trained by it.

So strengthen your drooping hands and weak knees!


Some folks who know folks who are 'going through' are feeling sorry for those folks....the folks who are going 'through' present their problems as 'an attack from the enemy.'

And, of course, in the church arena and realm, all you got to do is use certain lingo and catch phrases, and the whole gang of 'prayer warriors' flock and think its their 'job' to 'tear down strongholds' and 'wage warfare' against 'the enemy.'

And then they 'go in...'  thinking that they are doing 'God's bidding and service' by praying for a person who is going through.

And THEN they start to catch ALL kinds of hell and what some call 'backlash in the spirit,' thinking that its the enemy....

WHEN REALLY, IT'S GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOD HIMSELF will whip the very ones who call themselves 'waging warfare' on the behalf of someone(s) that is going through....

Let me share some thing with you....

Some folks DO go through as the result of a REAL enemy...the devil.  

In THOSE cases, YES.  By ALL means, PRAY.  PRAY.  PRAY.  The Word tells us to pray!

And SOME folks are going through because THEY BROUGHT IT ON THEMSELVES!!!!


Their 'going through' is the chastisement of THE LORD!

And here you are (with your prayin, warring self!) are just like that older sibling who feels bad for the younger sibling getting their TAILS whipped...so you make the MISTAKE of trying to STOP the whipping!!!!!!!!


I repeat...

YOU ...Prayer Warrior...Intercessor....WOG....MOG....CANNOT AND SHOULD NOT INTERVENE WHEN SOMEONE IS UNDER THE CHASTISEMENT (or even worse) THE JUDGMENT OF GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You may fool around and catch a beating YOURSELF!

You can pray that they ENDURE their chastening like a big boy or a big girl...
You can pray that their strength fail not....
You can pray that God will have MERCY on them....

But don't think you're so big and bad and bold 'in the spirit' that you can STOP what GOD is doing in a person's life....EVEN if what GOD is doing is (temporarily) bad!

Just step back...and let GOD BE GOD!!!!!

Because YOUR hands are TOO short to box with GOD.

That person NEEDS the chastisement of the Lord.  That person needs judgment to be administered to their life so that the peaceable fruit of RIGHTEOUSNESS can prevail and manifest in their lives.

That person's VERY soul being SAVED depends on if they accept-AND endure-the chastening of THE LORD!

I don't care HOW God uses them.  I don't care HOW anointed some think they are.  I don't care WHO they are...

NO ONE is exempt from the chastisement of the Lord....

EXCEPT, of course, those who BELONG to the DEVIL!

Hebrews 12:6-8

Because the Lord disciplines whomever he loves, and he punishes every son or daughter whom he accepts.
Bear hardship for the sake of discipline. God is treating you like sons and daughters! What child isn’t disciplined by his or her father? 

But if you don’t experience discipline, which happens to all children, then you are illegitimate and not real sons and daughters.

If they don't 'take their whipping,' ENDURE IT, then God says they are NOT Sons (of God!)

Some folks you know TODAY are enduring hardships.  

They are suffering consistent, unending depression.  They are burying folks right and left.  They are experiencing all kinds of loss.  They are literally tormented in their minds...with no relief.  They are suffering in their bodies.  

And the MORE you pray for them, THE WORSE THEY GET!

Now, HOLD UP....


Isn't that what the Word of God SAYS????

Ok, then...if that is true (and we all know the Word is TRUE), then if your praying, PRAYER WARRIOR, for these people is NOT making things BETTER in their lives....but worse, then that means that what they are going through MUST BE ORDAINED BY GOD!!!!


If GOD allows it, and your prayers, your intervention, doesn't bring about any change to the situation, you need to step back and ask GOD, 'GOD, is this YOU?  Are YOU doing this in this person's life????'

And if He says YES, then BACK OFF!

Do not try to manipulate God with your prayers b/c you feel bad for what a person's going through.  You can feel bad for them, pray, but WATCH HOW you pray!

Because you COULD be praying AMISS, operating in the realm of witchcraft, AND SUFFER THE SAME DISCIPLINE/CHASTENING of the Lord that the person you're praying for is!

I know what I'm speaking of.  I used to be a 'prayer warrior' in church.  Head of intercessory teams.  Stayed 'on my face' praying for folks...and turns out those folks were under judgment or being chastened by God...and then all of a sudden, I found myself going through craziness, too.

I had to step back and go to God and seek direction...

And that's when HE gave it to me!

So its best you MOVE OUT OF THE WAY when God's judging folks or whipping their tail!

They may lose their life...but they WILL gain salvation!


Many doctrines have been erroneously taught in the church system.  If you want to learn WHERE these doctrines-such as prayer warriors and warfare praying-get a copy of

What Will You Do When the Cock Crows?

Mark 14:72

"At that very moment, a rooster crowed a second time. Peter remembered what Jesus told him,“Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down, sobbing...."

You know...its been about 4 years or so now since I've been in church....

It was scary at first-leaving the church.  I really didn't know where I was going or what I would do next.

I just took it one day at a time.  Day in.  Day out.

You see, when you are used to not being in the know, or in the clique, the fellowship thing really doesn't get to you.  There are some (people) who literally shrivel up and DIE because they don't see so-and-so and they can't sing in the choir or the praise team.

Or they can't hear Apostle So-And-So preach...

I personally began to really enjoy the quieting of my spirit that occurred after I left the church.

It was like I could hear from God BETTER.  It wasn't 'Pastor said this...' or 'Prophet said that...'

It was more like 'GOD SAID THIS...' and 'GOD SAID THAT..'

And for someone like me to hear from GOD?  FOR MYSELF?????

That STILL blows me away.

I have a past.  Lol...I have a present...AND a future.

I wrote about it in my ebook 'Down Low Deliverance: BE SET FREE!'

I share about my struggles with same sex attraction.  And lust.  Fornication.  Sex addiction.  I'm very blunt and candid-some may consider it graphic even.

Because I don't share my present day struggles that I may go through in this area, some seem to think that I don't still deal with my flesh.  That simply is NOT true.

I just choose not to dwell on them ....

I still mess up.  I still need to repent.  I just don't get on FB or Blog Talk Radio and whine about it all day long.

Because quite frankly, I believe that that is between ME and God.

One thing you can say about me is that I won't lie to you.  I am real.  I will tell you how it is.  Even if it angers you.  I don't do it to anger you; I have to share the truth.  Even if it hurts you.  Or me.

But to get back to my topic....

WHAT do you do when the cock crows and you realize that you messed up?  That the very thing GOD said He was expecting you to do - mess up - and the very thing you said you would NEVER do....YOU DO????

And that reality hits you right in the face????

Peter was faced with some reality about his humanity.

Peter loved God.  Peter would go to bat for God.  But he was a bit religious....and presumptiuous.

He presumed that if given the opportunity, he would die for Christ.....when it was Christ who came to die FOR US!!!

But Peter trusted so much in HIMSELF to be righteous and earn a right hand seat with Christ Jesus that he stopped relying on the power of and faith IN GOD.

I think that's why God allows the cock to crow in our lives sometimes...you know?

When faced with our own sin and shortcomings, we have two choices.

We could do a Judas and off ourselves...never repenting.  Never going to the mercy seat to obtain favor from God.

We could be so hard on ourselves and never forgive OURSELVES...that no matter WHAT GOD has said or done about the situation....we will beat ourselves up til we die.


We can run BOLDLY to the mercy seat and get favor and mercy from God.  We can simply ask God to forgive us.  AND KEEP IT MOVING!!!!!

I have learned in this walk to not be so hard on myself.  There was a time when I fell into fornication ....and I was SO distraught that 'I' had fallen that I just couldn't get over it.  So I took some pills, turned on the gas and waited to die.


When you find someone like that who would rather rely on THEIR strength, mull around in self loathing and pity, who will go around for weeks beating themselves on the chest in remorse, who run to the altar week after week for the same issue, who will continuously ask OTHERS to pray for them b/c they just can't 'snap out of it....,' then you have run into a religious spirit who just may kill themselves.


NOT because the mercy and blood of Christ is not able to cleanse from all unrighteousness...nor b/c God didn't forgive.

But simply b/c they refuse to ACCEPT the mercy and forgiveness of GOD.

Religion has caused so many folks (preachers, pastors, members alike) to be so daggone hard on themselves!

The church system is such an abusive and cannibalistic one.  There is hardly any room for one to repent or to ask for mercy....

The way this thing is supposed to work is that if one falls, they should NOT have to go before a church, or Facebook, or Twitter, or a board or a council, or a priest to repent of their sins.

The Word of God says to go directly to GOD and obtain mercy!

The church and all her constituents set up idols and icons within her, and then when those icons and idols fall, they publicly stone and condemn them...some of them to DEATH!

Is it any wonder that these preachers are offing themselves more frequently?

I just read an article by TD Jakes where he went into his reasonings as to why the increase in pastoral suicide.

He made some valid points:  but I got it in one sentence.

The reason why the pastors are committing suicide is because these men and women were not and should not be pastoring in the first place.  The system in church is one that takes advantage of leaders AND the people.  They feed off one another....and NO ONE is relying on the power of God but the systems of MEN to redeem man.  And the systems of man will save NO ONE.

The pastors are set up as demigods....folks go around amening them and worshiping them all year long, giving them all their money, etc. And slowly but surely, these pastors start believing their own hype.  They start to thinking they ARE gods.  They start believing their own press - and forgetting their own humanity.

This is why I got out of the ministry:  ministry is such a dangerous game.

And it takes its toll on you....it really does.

And many, MANY people who believe they are 'called' into the ministry are SO being lied to by the enemy of their souls....its only a trap to get you to be among the growing number of pastors who are becoming increasingly depressed, mental and suicidal.

Godly sorrow is a part of repentance.  If one falls, they should feel it.  But NOT forever!

Remember in these churches where they would have you tarrying, snotting, crying, hollering, fall all in the floor, all under the pew...talking about you are repenting?  Or 'being purged?'


It does NOT take God all day to pardon your sins or forgive them.  The moment you ask for forgiveness, YOU ARE FORGIVEN!!!!!!

Get up from there and ACCEPT His forgiveness!

Now, folks' forgiveness?

Especially CHURCH FOLKS?  You may NEVER get their forgiveness or mercy.

But as long as you got what YOU need from GOD, ur GOOD!

An important part of repentance is not just the godly sorrow part.

The Word of God says NO CHASTISEMENT seems pleasant ....for the MOMENT.

Meaning, even GOD is not gonna beat you up forever.  There IS no never-ending, continual season of chastisement.  There IS a season...but it is short.

God's mercies are new WHEN?  EVERY MORNING!!!!!

That means that when you get up in the morning, God has given you ANOTHER CHANCE!

Breathe in that oxygen and exhale that CO2 and LIVE!!!!!!

Peter could have done a Judas and just offed himself...I mean COME ON!

He had denied the very Savior who he vowed to die FOR!
Not only that, but dude was cursing up a STORM while doing it!
He wasn't EVEN behaving like an apostle/disciple SHOULD!

But when Jesus LOOKED HIM IN THE EYES, Peter realized what he had done, YES, HE WEPT!

If you gotta cry, go ahead and CRY.

But don't sit there and cry me a river...for weeks!

Get you one good cry in and then go ahead and REPENT!

Go to bed and when you wake up in the morning, guess what will be waiting for you even BEFORE you get out of bed?????

A BRAND NEW MERCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOT ONLY THAT...NEW MERCIES (plural) God will give!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLENTEOUS MERCIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THAT'S how I can get up every day....with a smile on my face.  Knowing that no matter what, GOD'S GOT ME!

When the cock crows in your life, go ahead and look to Jesus.

Cry if you must.  His beauty, His mercies, His love, His longsuffering towards us is absolutely AMAZING!!!!

But then wipe your tears and GET TO MOVING!!!!!!

Cooking a Gynormous Meal Doesn't Prove I LOVE U!


There are some that may misconstrue this post as a rant, per se, against Thanksgiving Day.

And I guess, it kinda is.

As I get ready to log into work (yes!  I'm gonna go make that paper today!), I began to think on the whole concept and misconception on which this day is allegedly 'celebrated.'

Family members that don't talk to one another all year long scramble to get funds together to travel so that all the family can gather around a table, offer God thanks for all He has given them.

Most of these family members can't stand one another.  And some people invite folks who can't be around family to come to their house for din din...so the whole concept that's behind thanksgiving is lost because you're spending it with a bunch of strangers who mean absolutely NOTHING to you.

So folks gorge themselves with food to the point of making themselves physically ill....and the folks who spent possibly all week preparing this illustrious meal are too tired to even enjoy the company ....OR the meal....

It made me think about the foolishness of it all.

Folks spending money they don't have, to cook TOO much food that usually ends up in the trash anyways does NOT prove that the folks who prepared the food 'love' the people they are feeding.

As a whole, I think that folks in this country are WAY too obsessed with food.

When folks go to church, afterwards, what do they do?

They go to the nearest Golden Corral, or Chinese Buffet and gorge themselves with food.

Or they gather in the 'fellowship hall' and pack on the pounds.

People in this country eat entirely TOO Much food.  All year long!

The way you prove you love people is in how you treat them ALL YEAR LONG.

They way you prove you love GOD is in how obedient you are to Him, ALL YEAR LONG.

Not in setting aside ONE DAY of the year where you decide to 'give God thanks' for all He has done.

How would YOU feel if you worked hard all year long for someone you love, but they only decided to say 'thank you' and 'I love you' only ONCE per year????????

You would be peeved, wouldn't you?

That relationship would not last too long, would it?

But that's just what so called christians do ..... they decide to thank God once per year...and God's been good to them ALL YEAR LONG.  Faithful.  Longsuffering.  Forgiving.  Merciful....

As a matter of fact, God grants us NEW mercies .... HOW often?

EVERY DAY!!!!!!!

Yet we only say thanks.  We only DO thanks...we only take the time to be grateful for what He's done....Once per YEAR???????

HOW is that right?????

HOW is it right to only give a meal to the HOMEless....ONE day per year...when they need to eat the other 364 days per year....and then they STILL need a place to stay....ALL YEAR LONG?

I've been homeless before, and I can tell you.  My son and I appreciated the one meal, maybe the gifts that was lavished on us....but the people who did it did it to make THEMSELVES feel better.

NOT because they 'loved us,' per se!

NOT because they even CARED about where my son and I were gonna stay after they did their 'good deed' or two for the year!

The holiday season is so hypocritical...it really is.  I just can't get with it.  Folks who spit at you all year long, folks who could care LESS about your plight or how you get along ....all year long, ALL OF A SUDDEN, get a heart, get some compassion from somewhere.  And decide that they want to feed you and maybe get you some gifts.


That's just CRAZY to me!

So I'm chillin today.  I'm going make that double time.

And you can bet your bottom dollar that come tomorrow, come next week, come next month, I will prove my love my loved ones.....by doing what's RIGHT by them....ALL YEAR LONG!

Come tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, FOREVER, I WILL give God thanks.  I WILL live a grateful and thankful LIFE....ALL YEAR LONG.

God WILL know I love Him...not by what I profess on some designated holiday....but in how I do what He says....

ALL YEAR LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is Spiritual Hunger BIBLICAL? SPIRITUAL? Or Gluttonous?


Spiritual hunger is NOT biblical!

How is it then that those in the church has gone and made spiritual hunger some sort of virtue?????

EVERYWHERE in the Word of God when I read of hunger and thirst, God ALWAYS fills His People!

He promises to feed them.  To quench every thirst.  To satiate their weary souls.  To give them rest from their labors.  

So where did this 'spiritual hunger' mess come from?????

WHY is it that when a person can just ALWAYS be hungry, and eat, and eat......AND EAT....CONTINUOUSLY, that we call that gluttony? Or an eating disorder?

But when someone can continuously 'eat' spiritually from fallen, errant, rebellious, unbiblical leaders' tables, they are praised for being 'hungry' for the Word?????

GLUTTONY is gluttony is gluttony is gluttony!

Whether it is done in the natural, or in the spirit!!!

In the Word of God, it does say 'Blessed are those who hunger and thirst...' in the Beatitudes.  But those in the church world need to stop worshiping the act of 'being hungry for God' in and of itself as some sort of religious or spiritual virtue.  

In the natural, hunger is a physiological function.  Hormones resident in certain portions of the stomach sends signals to the brain telling it it is hungry.  And then we eat.

We do not control the 'hunger impulse,' however, in the Spirit.

The HOLY GHOST (is supposed to) control the 'hunger impulse' in our spirits.  

We do not control the Holy Ghost; He LEADS us.  HE convicts us.  HE sparks hunger in our spirits.  

When we first became born again, HE initiated that whole deal.  NOT US.  

When that (I hate to use the word) impulse, that unction, hit us to seek God, it was THE HOLY GHOST that did that.  That was not generated out of our spirits or natural man.  Or souls.

That whole mindset of US starting this thing with God is the CRUX of the deception that is rampant within (AND without) the church and within the realms of religion!

We think WE control this stuff...when it is TRULY GOD who is IN CONTROL!!!!!

In the New Testament, HUNGER was HUNGER.  In almost every instance, when the word HUNGER was used, it spoke of the human, physiological condition of being hungry.....FOR FOOD!  

NOT for 'a word.'

ONE of the times HUNGER meant something otherwise was in Matthew 5:6 above that spoke on hungering and thirsting after RIGHTEOUSNESS.  

RIGHTEOUSNESS is NOT something you can obtain when someone lays hands on you.  Or when you get 'slain in the Spirit.'  Or when you attend so many church services, conferences, or what not.  

RIGHTEOUSNESS is NOT some sort of tender that you use in exchange for products from the corner market.  It is not some transferable substance that someone can impart unto you.

RIGHTEOUSNESS can ONLY come from GOD!!!!!!  DIRECTLY!!!!!

It can only be received from us by FAITH.  

Isaiah 55 starts out with the declaration that we are to drink, eat from GOD....

Ho, every one that thirsts, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfies not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good...


Incline your EAR, and come unto me: HEAR, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

Those with an EAR to HEAR what GOD is saying WILL BE FED....DIRECTLY BY HIM!

And guess what?

THEY SHALL BE FILLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Nothing like that stuff that fills you up!  FOR REAL!)

When we over-depend upon flesh to fill us
When we rely on man to feed our spirits
When we keep seeking after that which NEVER fulfills

WE WILL REMAIN HUNGRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In both instances of physical and spiritual hunger, when we just eat and eat and eat, with NO discerning, without 'reading the labels,' without inspecting what's on the plate, we are in danger of eating something that simply is not good for us!

That whole thing where folks who go to church just keep 'eating and eating and eating' - running from this prophet to that apostle, church hopping, jumping between conferences and summits and convocations, going to service after service....all out of this religious guise of 'being hungry for the word,' is nothing more than a religious spirit driving them.

Much like an obese person is 'driven' to the fridge at 3:20 a.m. by that false sensation of hunger pangs.

Much like the depressed person goes to the store and buys $100 in snacks...and then eats them all up in 3 days.

Much like that bored person seeks the solace of junk food, snacks, chips, ice cream, candy and the such to fill that void.

There is a VOID in religious people that can NEVER be fulfilled by an abundance of religious activity, or attending many church services, or by filling as many 'titles and positions' as possible within their respective religious institutions.  

They are in a 'Church Rat Race,' much like the people in the world are in that rat race in the corporate arena. 

NO matter how many services they attend, no matter how many positions they gain, no matter who prophesies to them, no matter who preaches or teaches them, or how many times they get prophesied over, no matter how much they give to TBN, no matter what they DO, they are NEVER FILLED!!!!! 

That's the same thing that happens to obese people; they eat and eat and eat, trying to fill a void.  And they never recognize those cues that lets them know 'Hey, I'm FULL.' So they don't stop....eating.

Church people operate the same way....

They go and go and go.  They do and do and do.  They spiritually eat...and eat...and eat....

EVER-eating, and NEVER getting full!

What does the scripture say?

2 Timothy 3:7
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

And they never spiritually discern what they're eating, or that they are filled.  OR WHAT THEY ARE FILLED WITH!!!

Both instances - in natural and spiritual hunger - ends up in one being FAT, lazy, unhealthy, unable to read cues from their own bodies (or spirits) that what they're eating is NOT good for them.

And cause more harm than good, in the end.

The key here is to be more DISCERNING, more CAUTIOUS, more KNOWLEDGEABLE about what you're eating....

And WHO makes the food you're eating!

We tell overweight folks to watch what they eat. Read the labels. Know the manufacturers of the foods you buy. Go organic. Prepare more foods at home.

But we tell over-spiritual folks who always go around 'looking for a word' to 'GO ON! GO for what you know! Its good to eat, eat, EAT off everyone's spiritual plate!'

We encourage and enable spiritual 'gluttons' in the organized church, and then wonder why the people are always SICK.

Time to watch your diet!

"After I'm Done With You-You Lesbian-You'll Never Want Another Woman AGAIN!"

The above picture is a brutal scene from the movie 'The Women of Brewster's Place,' which starred heavyweights such as Oprah Winfrey, Lynn Whitfield, Jackee Harry and Phyllis Stickney back in 1988.

The above character, Lorraine (Lonette McKee), is a lesbian in an impoverished community in New York who lives with her live-in lesbian lover, Theresa (played by Paula Kelly).  They are often discriminated against in the tight-knit community and rejected, but they forge on in their relationship.

Then one day, local drug dealer C.C. (played by Glenn Plummer) catches Lorraine alone, threatens her by knifepoint, drags her into a dark alley and beats and rapes her exclaiming:

"After I'm Done With You, You'll Never Want Another Woman AGAIN!"

I have seen this movie at least twice in the past.  But it was when it first came out...way before I had my own experience with same sex attraction later on in my twenties...

This was a very hard scene for me to watch, and it brought tears to my eyes.

(For those of you who don't know my story, you can read about it in my eBook 'Down Low Deliverance: BE SET FREE!')

I could definitely relate to this...in my eBook, I go into detail of the sexual abuse I suffered at the hands of a relative and the abusive relationships that followed afterwards.  

A lot of people really don't understand the dynamics behind homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality and so on.  
There are a LOT of men out there that believe if they can 'turn a woman out,' that she will somehow 'turn straight' by one sexual encounter with them.

And in C.C.'s case, he believed that he could violently, forcibly convert this woman.  Smh.

If you have seen the whole movie, all the rape did was drive Lorraine further into the hands of her lesbian lover.

Many who seek to help the lesbian or homosexual really believe that they can somehow change them by all these outward calisthenics, be it religious, violent or otherwise.

When I decided I would 'come out' and started attending lesbian support groups, I consistently ran into women who shared horrid experiences of sexual abuse as children and young women.  Of horribly abusive relationships with their teen boyfriends, or being cheated on.  

After many a candid and open discussions amongst ourselves in these support groups, it was concluded that most of the women who turned to the lesbian or bisexual lifestyle did so out of CHOICE.  The attraction to women did NOT begin until AFTER the incidences of abuse, or infidelity.  

These women decided they had had enough of the men using and abusing them.  Some as girls were raped by other women.  Some as preteens and teens were introduced to sexual experiences with the same sex - what many call 'sexual experimentation' - and through a SERIES of events, as well as the confusion of trying to figure out if they were gay or lesbian or not, having these desires towards the same sex and not knowing how to RESIST THEM, many grew up eventually believing that they were 'created this way.'

There is something very powerful about sex.  

When you have sex with someone, you become one with that person.  And anything introduced during a sexual encounter can literally become a part of your soul.  Your spirit.  

If the sex is with someone of the same sex, there is a trust that is released with women, in particular, that makes it extremely difficult for her to differentiate between right and wrong.  There is a literal hormone that is released when a woman has an orgasm called 'oxytocin' (it can be released to some degree in men upon ejaculation, too.  Which is why when men have sex with men, that bond can be hard to break as well).

When oxytocin is released, it really does act like a 'love potion,' of sorts.  

When Michelle Obama and others say things like 'you can't help who you love,' in a sense, it is true.

That is, when you involve sex...

And if that sex is NOT within the godly confines of ONE man and ONE woman who are married, when you take that and pervert it in any way, there are bound to be casualties.

When two people of the same sex come together and release oxytocin, that bond can seem intricately IMPOSSIBLE to break.  Because it is with a person who knows what you have, how you tick, how it feels to be a man, a woman, wired the same way....couple that with mind-boggling, explosive sexual experiences, and it can really seem to the two involved that they really CAN'T help who they 'love.'

PLUS, you add to the equation the probable dysfunction that the both of them probably suffered in earlier or childhood years...that draws them together, too.

The enemy uses all of this to bring about what we call the alternative lifestyle.  And dupe millions of people into believing they are actually in love with the same sex.

And when people who simply DO NOT understand those dynamics come in with a wrecking ball and call them names from the pulpit like 'faggots' and 'bull-dykes,' or brutally rape them, or try to 'turn them out,' or bring them to polluted church altars where the very preachers who are laying hands on them are gay, bi or on the down low THEMSELVES...

Its NO WONDER most who are still in this lifestyle mock, laugh at and shun church.  

Some will go, because they enjoy the spotlight and the attention that church gives them.  But most will not...unless, of course, is someone who is gay or lesbian decides to open a 'gay-friendly' or 'lesbian-friendly' church where they would feel comfortable to 'worship God.' (See my article, 'First Gentlemen, First Lady and Other Foolishness In The Church')

In the meantime, while everyone's experimenting with this population of people, going to either extremes on how to deal with gays and lesbians - either being eerily silent on the issue or publicly applauding behavior and attractions that we all know is not normal or healthy.  

(TRUST ME.  I've known more gays and lesbians personally than most people.  I've sat in support groups with them.  Seen them cry as they share their abuse stories.  NOTHING about the homosexual or lesbian lifestyle is NORMAL or EMOTIONALLY, SPIRITUALLY or MENTALLY healthy...NOT TO MENTION PHYSICALLY!)

So while this speculation is being done, millions still suffer in torment to their desires....

Knowing deep down inside...it just AIN'T RIGHT!  But feeling entrapped and imprisoned to them.

Couple that with a hostile religious environment and no real answers to their torment, is it any wonder so many in the lifestyle CHOOSE to STAY in the lifestyle?????



Well, I can say I have found it!!!!!


If you are trapped in a whirlwind of desires that you KNOW are wrong, but are somehow driven to fulfill them, GOD IS THERE TO HELP.

I'm NOT talking about going to church...or coughing up some demons...
I'm NOT talking about going to therapists that don't understand your plight...
I'm NOT talking about anything you probably EVER heard about before!

I found help simply by going to God for MYSELF.  He allowed someone who had the same struggles I did to share how HE got free.  And THAT STORY helped me DECIDE...'HEY!  I CAN BE FREE, TOO!'

I share that story in my eBook, "Down Low Deliverance: Be SET FREE!"

Nothing spooky or magical here.  Just an honest story of a church girl who had been abused but who is now SET FREE by the LOVE, TRUTH and POWER of GOD!

The Disability Hustle

When we see someone who is disabled, we usually see someone who is outwardly disabled.  They may be on crutches or in a wheelchair...or walk on a cane.  Or maybe they wear some sort of other outward apparatus that denotes they are physically disabled.

We have broadened our understanding of disability to include all mental or emotional, perhaps physiological disorders, and also recovery from various ailments, diseases or addictions of some kind.

There was a time when the disabled were grossly abused and neglected.  Then the ADA (American Disabilities Act) came on the scene and changed everything.  Enacted in 1990, it is a fairly new law -- only 14 years old -- that protects the rights of the disabled.  It also was set in place to ensure that disabled people would have equal access to transportation, buildings, accommodations for telecommunications, job and educational opportunities, etc.

(Hang in there:  there is a reason why I'm giving the little history lesson!)
What is known as Social Security disability benefits was started by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935 under the Social Security Act during the Great Depression as a form of 'social insurance.'  It was to serve as supplemental income for elderly individuals only - who were at an obvious disadvantage to care for themselves.  

In 1956, President Dwight Eisenhower amended the SSA to include giving social security benefits to the disabled.  It was originally for WORKERS between the ages of 50-65 who were deemed somehow disabled. (I want you to catch that....elderly people between the ages of 50-65 WHO HELD A JOB were the only ones who initially qualified for disability benefits!)

It was later amended over the years to include disabled people of all ages and mental disorders and recovering addicts.


With THAT being said, I want you all to think about the 'disabled' folks that YOU know. The ones who get a disability check every month.  I don't care WHO they are, how much you like or love them.  

We ALL know someone who get a 'check' EVERY month, and even if you have NEVER asked them outright 'HOW ARE YOU GETTING A CHECK?  YOU AREN'T DISABLED?'  You have surely thought it!


The disabled folks - the ones who get a check - that I know -for the most part - are not truly disabled.  

They milk the system for a substantial amount of money.  They 'act' crazy, or get the doctor to make up an illness or something wrong with them.  They have learned to milk the system.  

And they are living LARGE off the hard work of the people in this country who DO clock in to work everyday and pay taxes.  Who do have to work two and three jobs just to make ends meet.  

(I still don't get how a drug addict who CHOSE to put the needle in their arms can qualify for a check anyways!)

I have to say:  most disabled (not all) folks are some of the most DECEPTIVE, MANIPULATIVE, SNEAKY, NARCISSISTIC, BITTER, SELF-DESTRUCTIVE, WHINY people I know!

I know what you're saying...

"Wenona!  How can  you say such a thing?  They are disabled!  They didn't ask to be disabled; it just happened to them..."

Let me tell you something...

Most of what the SSA has deemed a disability today are disabilities that - for the most part - disorders and ailments that recipients could have PREVENTED.

And mental disabilities?  Those aren't forever.  Just because you may have a mental disability at one point in your life does not deem you unable to work forever!

I look at kids with Down's Syndrome who got jobs and are some of the hardest workers, the happiest ones on the job...I look at people with one leg run a race in the Special Olympics...and win!....I look at blind people who work in tech support from home....

And I KNOW that a disability is NOT the end of the world!!!!!!

The problem with many in this country is we hear a sob story and we immediately wanna throw money and a check at the issue instead of dealing with THE REAL ISSUES.

If you TELL a disabled person that they cannot do something because they are disabled, sooner or later that message will sink in and they will start to actually believe that they can't!

And some folks on disability are just plain evil.  YES, I SAID IT!

They see a way out, and will opt for the easy route ANYDAY.  

And they will use WHOMEVER will allow them to use them to get what they want.  That includes family, friends, church people, the government...

It's really disgusting!

I know so-called disabled folks who pastor churches -and collect tithes and offerings!  I know some who collect a check who are living large, they've been able to go on vacations with their disability checks, they deal drugs, they pimp...the whole nine!


I'm not at all against someone who is really disabled to go get help.  All I'm saying is it is DEAD wrong to keep using people, to keep playing 'the victim and cray cray' just because you're too lazy or too scared to go and GET A JOB and take care of yourself.

Let me share something about myself...when I was 5 years old, my Kindergarten teacher said I would have to be in special educational classes for the rest of my life.  When I was born, I was so premature that the doctors said I would be disabled.

My dad, a teacher - a special education teacher - did not allow what doctors and teachers said about me to pre-determine how he would treat me.  

He treated me like a normal kid.  I went to normal classes.  Not ONE time did my dad allow them to label me.  He didn't go looking for a reason to go and collect a check for me.

I ended up graduating in the Top Ten percent of my graduation class in High School.  AND I won a FULL TUITION SCHOLARSHIP to college!

I work from home and I am an author.  I have raised kids pretty much on my own and now am a grandma.  

I am a functional, tax paying, employed woman.  YES, I could have went and got a 'crazy check.'  But I didn't!

I have been sick at times.  Hospitalized.  I could have signed up for disability many a day....but I didn't.


Because I KNEW that I could do it.

I could take care of myself...and my kids, too!

You see, something happens to disability check recipients when they become dependent on the system or on others to take care of them...they actually become 'disabled' from being able to BELIEVE that they TRULY CAN TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES!

It becomes a mind thing.  

And that is why folks on disability can be hustlers and run game on folks and use folks...they feel like they can and that they are entitled.  They are angry that whatever happened to them to disable them happened, and so now the entire world around them has to pay for it.

And the loved ones who keep acqueiscing and enabling the disabled folks around them...all they are doing is DISABLING them from making QUALITY decisions in their lives.  For taking responsibility for their own lives.  For allowing them to become responsible, productive members of society.

I dare you to CUT THE APRON STRINGS to any disabled person you know.  You know deep down inside that they've been using you, manipulating you, conning you, deceiving you for YEARS.  

But because you love them, you keep allowing them to do it.  

It is the ultimate act of love and very empowering if you would just CUT THE APRON STRINGS now.  

Make them have to do it for themselves!  Make them responsible for their own lives.  

Stop enabling them.  Stop lying for them, covering for them, giving them your money.  

IF they are on disability, challenge them.  Challenge them to make opportunities for themselves to take care of themselves!  There is no shame in being on disability.  

The shame is on STAYING on disability...and doing the DISABILITY HUSTLE!

Preach Me, Sing Me Happy, Ni _ _ _!

When I first got saved, I was going to an all white church congregation...and I was the only black person in the church.  This did not bother me, because I was the only black person in a lot of things coming up...in school, in particular.  

I was a nerd, so I didn't study with many black kids...because most black kids from New Orleans didn't want to be 'nerds,' per se, so they didn't let on they were smart.  Instead they tried to push that thug/gangster/I'm hood persona for their classmates...even the GIRLS!

I was always a loner, so being different didn't bother me.  I never got into cliques and clubs and the such.  Just school, church and home.  

Church was all black, by default, since my it was my dad's uncles' church....

But I became culturally sensitive, if you will, in school.

So it didn't bother me when I started going to church and I was the only black person, when David Duke was running for governor of Louisiana in the 1980s and 1990s.  I was admittedly a little scared...but I pressed on anyhow!
Because I just KNEW I was in the will of God!
So because I was wet behind the ears, and was searching for a real encounter with God and the black church had failed me in that area...so I went on my search to the other side ...to .....


I think if every black believer is honest with themselves, we have all gotten a little tired of the shenanigans that we saw go on in the black church...so we went on our search for 'the perfect church.'

We know that the white church has their 'strong ' points...those of us who went on our search for 'the' church.

White people seemed so genuine with their worship.  It wasn't all for show or a talent show or a competition of who can outpreach or outsing who.  

That got real old in 'our' churches...

So we thought, 'The grass will definitely be greener on the other side...'



I used to go to an all white congregation...

And I found that white churches had their 'issues,' too.

True, they don't have the same issues that black churches do...but TRUST...they gots their issues, too!

Its gonna sound racist what I'm about to post, but I have to tell the truth.

White congregants are looking for black folks to entertain them....preach them happy, sing them happy, show me how to shout happy, to relieve them from all the very real pressures they got going on right now...

I used to go to a church where leadership was predominantly white...and they held a conference...it was called the 'Black Evangelism Conference.'  

It sounded innocent enough, right?  

I mean, after all, here was this holier than thou church/denomination who was realizing that there was actually black folks on the outskirts of their perimeters...and was making attempts to reach out to them....

But the only problem I began to see with that is the very fact they had to 'make attempts' to begin with....

You see, the problem with what passes for evangelism is that people who do evangelism have the wrong focus.  

They focus on what THEY believe will appeal to the 'market' they are trying to evangelize, instead of trusting that the Holy Ghost can reach beyond ALL racial and economic barriers and SAVE the Lost.

Not our clever, manipulative efforts at getting folks to 'come to church.'

The worse thing you can do is make folks come to your church!

And what I found is that most (white) congregants seek out black preachers and singers to their churches in efforts to draw more black people to their churches, all in efforts to prove to the world that they are culturally diverse, an example of the church in the Book of Acts....of all different races and ethnicities.

I want to divert your attention back to church history...the fact of the matter is that racism began in the institutional church.  Separatism in the church has always been a reality ... and the whole division that took place after Azusa Street was all racially motivated.

Plainly put...white folks could not (or would not) have church with black folks - we all know about Jim Crow laws...and we all know the story of William Seymour - the alleged 'Father of Pentecostalism' - how he was locked out of the class/bible study when mentor Charles Parham was trying to learn about the coveted 'Baptism of the Holy Ghost.'

(I write about that and a WHOLE lot more in my eBook, The Fruits of Azusa),

The whole problem with this is the problem with the organized church system as a whole:  the very fact that it is INSTITUTIONALIZED.  


And when you got that ol' plantational structure going in the church - white man in charge, black man doing all the work - there are BOUND to be some racial discrimination going on.

It is often said that Sunday morning is the most segregated hour of the week...that is not something of OUR doing.  That was started with Jim Crow laws.  With slavery.  With the institutionalization of religion.

With Charles Parham locking William Seymour out the prayer meeting...

The entire Azusa movement began, was birthed in division...is it any wonder to THIS DAY, the tens of 1000s of churches birthed out of Azusa are seeped in it?

Oh no, my writing about it, bringing attention to it, is NOT racist.  It is factual.  I did my research.  I studied church history.  And my history.  

I'm just bold enough to write on it....you know, the stuff y'all shout and preach over every week in church!

Yes, there is trouble on the horizon in the so-called 'white church' as well.  

And they will hire any black person who is willing to entertain them, to make them feel like they are 'having church.'  

They will allow a black man to preach or a black woman to sing them happy, to sing them out of the misery that  has been handed down to them from their forefathers....

All because they won't repent.

Yes, even though YOU didn't own slaves, YOU didn't kill our men and rape our women, YOU didn't lock folks out your churches, YOU didn't discriminate against blacks in leadership on ANY level, YOU didn't oppress generations of black people for your own economic and political empowerment...

Your forefathers did!

And God is calling for repentance for the sins of the fathers....

And repentance is NOT just holding Black Evangelism conferences, or allowing black folks to come to your churches to entertain you.  

Repentance is not just you electing a black man into office or placating millions of people with substandard social service programs that strangle more than they empower....


Repentance is being sorry for what was done, AND vowing to change mindsets, behaviors, prejudices, secret thoughts, fears, etc. that you STILL hold on to...

And the reason why I know you do is because of what you ALLOW to happen...

In your churches.  In Washington, D.C.  In your courtrooms.  On the police force.  In City Hall.

The day of the Ni_ _ _ _ singing and dancing you happy are LONG over.  


FOR REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
