In Part I of my Preacher’s of L.A.’s Episode Two commentary, we addressed the concept of godly confrontation from a biblical standpoint. My summation was the Bishop Ron and First Lady LaVette Gibson did attempt to employ Jesus’ method of conflict resolution, yet were hampered by the lack of accountability and honesty identified in Bishop Noel Jones and Loretta Jones’ relationship. In this piece, we’ll dig a little deeper into the volatile dinner date and further expound on godly confrontation.Read More
About a week and a half ago, I posted Part I of How I Fell Prey to Jezebel (How to Identify This Spirit in Your Life) so if you haven't read it yet, please do. I've since read--and completed--Jennifer LeClaire's PHENOMENAL book, The Spiritual Warrior's Guide to Defeating Jezebel and interestingly enough, it confirmed many of the points in both Part I and II of this topic (albeit better articulated with more examples and deeper understanding). If you haven't read it yet, I HIGHLY recommend it and yes, I will be reviewing it for you all shortly. So it is with that great encouragement that I give you Part II of How I Fell Prey to Jezebel! I won't say "enjoy," but I will say LEARN and APPLY what you've learned upon reading this.Read More
If you’ve read my post, “Jezebel Was My BFF,” then you know that at one point of my life, I was most certainly in the clutches of Jezebel. Actually, more than once. But the situation shared in that post was the most extensive. However, I want to list some characteristics by which you can identify this spirit working. And YES, Jezebel is a sexless (androgynous) spirit that can operate through men and women; she’s open to whoever will host her. (Although men usually take on the Absalom spirit, at the core, it’s the same thing.) But anyhoo, here we go.Read More
Wooh! Can you feel the heat in the room? Can you cut the tension in the air with a knife after watching this week’s episode of Preachers of L.A., “Truth Be Told”? The confrontation that defined this episode transpired between Bishop Ron Gibson and his wife, LaVette, and Bishop Noel Jones and his “friend,” Loretta.Read More
Despite the widely publicized lows in Prophetess Juanita Bynum's ministry, there have been several anointed highs as well. One of them, I believe, is featured in the teaching below, "The Spirit of Jezebel." If you're going to understand this foul spirit, then you need to understand where and what it is derived from. This sermon includes ALL of that.Read More
Dear Producers of Preachers L.A.,
We need to talk. Seriously. First let me say, I AM a fan of the show. I watch avidly and will be conducting a written commentary (NOT a gossip column!) on this season for GospelToday.com for the sake of starting a positive, much-needed dialogue, so stay tuned if you so choose. And while I would not go so far to say that Preachers of L.A. is a “God idea,” it’s certainly a good idea. All this to say, again, I like the show. And I am in your ballpark, really.
Throughout this letter, I will present various points that I feel need to be addressed (as I’m sure many others do as well). Commencing with the Drama King himself, Deitrick Haddon.Read More
Carol Kornacki has an awesome testimony! I discovered her quite by accident when researching Doreen Irvine and other witchcraft deliverance testimonies on Youtube.
After a traumatic childhood and a troubled young adult life, Carol became a rogue or solitary witch. But God wasn't done with her and sent her a wonderful saint, planted in the pits of darkness, to find her and call her out into the marvelous light!Read More
Preachers of L.A. is back for Season Two and is already full of action! We’re sharing with you about Episode One: “Judge Not.” In Season One, Gospel singer, Deitrick Haddon, was recovering from his recent divorce, the birth of his first child–out of wedlock, and a speedy engagement. All which had suspect timing and, understandably, tarnished his position as a Christian minister. Midway through the season, he embarked on a secret wedding to his now wife, Dominique. But what they did not reveal until after the public wedding in the season finale was that they were already expecting Baby #2!
This naturally put Pastor Jay Haizlip, the last-minute wedding officiant for the public wedding, in an extremely awkward position which he lovingly confronted Deitrick about in this first episode. Drama ensued.Read More
For decades, Robin Williams was the man that had us all–black and white, saved and unsaved, young and old–laughing. He lifted our spirits, all the while, his own spirit was being crushed beneath the weight of depression. What a tragic paradox! No amount of “R.I.P.s” can make his earthly or eternal death peaceful. From Scripture to Mary K. Baxter’s Divine Revelation of Hell, we know Hell and its ever-burning fire are very real. As the Church, we need to be straightforward about the topic of depression.Read More
If you know me, then you know I love the BBC show, Merlin! I’ve always been a HUGE sucker for almost any version of the Arthurian Legend even if, like Merlin, it barely follows the actual story.
If you follow the BBC classic show (ended all too soon, much to my great sadness!), then you know that Merlin is a Dragon Lord. The gift, passed down to him from his father, allows him to “lord” over dragons and in fact, any being that may be even related to a dragon. And then, I had a revelation!
We, you and I, are called to be Dragon Lords!Read More
Recently, a friend, very concerned about the state of marriage, asked me to address the issue of divorce. Now if you follow my personal Facebook account, then you know (or should know) EXACTLY how I feel about it. But for those who don’t know, that’s what this post is for. Here’s goes nothing.Read More
This is a short, but poignant installment. (Aren’t you happy? lol) This time, we’re exploring the Lion and the Lamb we view on the edge of Aslan’s country at the end of this voyaging tale. Enjoy!Read More
Have you heard of Black Jesus?
I had, but never knew what it was about and certainly hadn’t seen a trailer–until today. I was prompted to look into it when Gospel singer, Isaac “Ike” Carree called his Facebook followers to call in and boycott the show. Obviously I couldn’t do so just because he asked me to, so I looked it up. I was in no way ready for the utter mockery that ensued. Join me in banning this foolishness today!Read More
Continuing with our Witchcraft & Deliverance Chronicles, this is the story of Doreen Irvine. Now if you, like me, grew up reading the Rebecca Brown books like He Came to Set the Captives Free, then this woman's story will sound eerily similar. Actually I believe, He Came to Set the Captives Free is "spiritual warfare fiction" meaning that absolutely everything that happens in those books is 200% real and actually happened--just not (entirely) to Dr. Brown and Elaine. And since lovely Doreen had been around for a long time (passed away this year, I believe) it makes sense that the book would be based on her life.Read More
We’re FINALLY moving on to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (aren’t you happy) and entering the final three books of the Narnian Chronicles. I’m VERY excited to chat about this particular topic with you, so enjoy!Read More
Continuing with my final “Lion” installment, here we have “The Queen’s Food & Drink.” So let’s dig in!Read More
We're changing things up a bit with our Witchcraft & Deliverance Chronicles. Instead of featuring someone who came out of the Occult or similar situation, I'm featuring my ABSOLUTE.FAVOURITE.MINISTER in the ENTIRE world, Bishop Tudor Bismark, who, along with his wife Pastor "Mama" Chichi Bismark, have a most powerful deliverance ministry.Read More
Okay, I lied. Well, I misspoke. I thought I had a second Prince Caspian Jesus-theme in me, but not so. I do, however, have a third “Lion” theme in me. So enjoy: The Hangman & the King!Read More
