MEGAFEST: The Aftermath

Once again, EXMinistriesTV with G. Craige Lewis and Tetaun Moffett preached the Word of God to rebut those that defend an indefensible position.

The goal again is to point out the many clear inconsistencies that plague the Body of Christ. So many of our main platform prominent preachers are refusing to make a clear stand regarding the Scripturally established demarcation demanded by the Lord in the Word of God.

Lasciviousness is in full swing in these camps that the unsuspecting is falling in record numbers. When you can make an excuse not to preach the gospel, you are ashamed of the Savior. You have denied Him and those that deny Him must expect to be denied before the Father in heaven. The fame of the world has a price.

Denial before the Father.

As a result, the people in the assemblies of God are swallowing the seemingly tasteless, odorless drink of poison. Not realizing that the devil is the one serving this concoction of false truth mixed with lies.

Yet, the people drink it like Kool Aid……………Jim Jones style.

On the OWN Network, Oprah had her “Life Class” and you could see that it was all about Oprah.

When you watch the interview with TD Jakes, you will see that there was no question that the ecumenical spirit has fully engulfed TD Jakes. Once you have crossed the line, you are under the spell of “seducing spirits and doctrine of devils.”

The devils will teach you what to say to defend and indefensible position.

Not true all the time, but I am not, nor will I be surprised.

A few years ago, the Spirit of God shared that more prominent ministers will be exposed in sex scandals. Usually, when you are under the sway of seducing spirits, sometimes, not all the time, sexual immorality is part of the seduction. So, when these preachers come out with their sex scandals, bisexual scandals, and other Secret Sexual Sins, the Spirit of God warned you.

And as usual, with most sexual scandals, the people will scatter and wander around. Disillusioned because they didn’t expect their leader to sin sexually. As with the children of Israel when they engaged in idol worship in the Canaanite high places, sexual immorality was part of their pagan ritual. So it is today. In some camps where prominent leaders exist, the pagan rituals, coupled with sexual immorality will follow them.

One thing about “haters” that I appreciate with the definition of it in this episode. This is a well used tactic of LGBT. When you speak against the sin of homosexuality, you will not be tolerated. The hypocrisy in LGBT is clear. They are tolerant of sin but intolerant of righteousness.

This same spirit has carried over into certain segments of the lewd members that falsely profess faith in Jesus. When the light of the glorious gospel shines on their sin to be exposed, they are quick to call you a hater.

I AM A HATER…………of every thing that God hates.

God hates sin and if you claim to be a believer and you do not hate sin on His level, you are a lover of satan and a true hater of God.

James 4:4-10 says

“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double- minded.

Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”

These same people will accuse you of not being loving.

I AM A LOVER………………..of everything and everybody that God loves.

But there is One Person I love more than you.

God.

Jesus said, “If you love Me keep My commandments.”

John, the apostle of the Lamb said, “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.”

If you cannot love Jesus it’s because you love sin more.

Sadly, only a remnant will fight or contend for the gospel. In fact, we are so tripped up, there are many people that dispute things that really have very little to no bearing over confronting the very things that face the church. We do not realize that the enemy is slowly closing in on the destruction of the truth that it doesn’t really matter that people are dying and going to hell.

The biggest deception is when sexual immorality become decriminalized. When repentance and faith toward God, through the grace and redemption of our Lord Jesus Christ is no longer at the tip of the spear. We are naked and ashamed because we refuse to put on Christ. We no longer go out to battle in armor of light, but we go to battle wearing………………..nothing.

Speaking of wearing nothing. In one segment, you will see women on stage at the MegaFest, dress like they were going clubbing. It is clear that femininity is used as a power to lure men or to have power over men. In other cases, it is also a lure for women to engage in lesbianism or biseuxality. I believe that the segment was one of those “Woman Thou Art Loosed” empowerment segments or “Women Of Purpose.”

Folks, they were dressed loose, not loosed from sin. Loose and lost. Not all of them were dressed that way, but you know who.

Automatically for a brother that has lust issues, forget it. There was no need to dress provocatively. And if Serita Jakes had any holiness left, she should have stopped the show and told them to put some clothes on a cover up the cleavage. What does this tell the other women that are out there? That it’s “OK” to come to church looking like a whore, and a harlot. This is what the church has become. Now when you see them come to church wearing the prostitute’s clothing and you do not check them at the door, just remember, you are responsible.

The spirit of harlotry is in the house of the Lord. Perversion is rampant in the church. Lust in men’s hearts and the spirit of the harlot is in the hearts of women.

We are naked because we are having sexual immorality. We worship ourselves. Porn and masturbation is the worship of ejaculation and orgasm. We worship sexual immorality because of the pleasures associated with it. We desire to make up our rules because God no longer rules us. We have reached a place where the worship of God, in spirit and in truth is no longer sought. But the worship of ourselves is the only thing that matters.

When you hear these preachers talk, Jesus and the correctly divided Word is no longer mentioned. They are saying things out of their emotions. The spirit and the soul is so close that sometimes they are almost indistinguishable. When the Lord is no longer present, preachers know how to substitute the soul for the lack of the Holy Spirit. It’s all a ploy to keep them coming for more. Strip away the emotions and the personalities and you will see the nakedness. So they do not want to appear naked. So they put a veil before the eyes of people.

The veil of false doctrine and hypocrisy, packaged in their emotional personality delivery of their word, not the Word of God.

Paul said, And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of men’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of salvation…”

So the power of God is the gospel of Jesus Christ that must have a zero factor of human wisdom, emotion delivery hype, and personality worship.

As a result, what preachers say could make a false statement sound so true and believable that the Bible is not used to check and cross check what was said. Masters of deception. That’s one of the reasons why the Lord wrote the Word on tablets to Israel. Then gave additional instructions to make sure that they got it.

Psalm 119 is the largest chapter in the Bible with 176 verses, divided into 22 stanzas with 8 verses each. At the beginning of each stanza is the Hebrew alphabet. God is telling us that the Word is the ABC’s of precepts, law, commands, statues, judgments, ways, His word, testimonies, and word of truth.

That tells us that as long as you know the Word, you can’t go wrong.

If you look at each of these speakers when you watch the video, if they did use the Bible, it wasn’t that they started out with the text from Scripture. They started with their point and then attempted to use Scripture to support what they were saying. This is how many people get into trouble with interpreting the already interpreted Bible. The Spirit of God is the only one that has the perfect interpretation of the Word. It is our job to just stay with the rule of interpretation.

You never isolate a Scripture to make a point. You use two or more Scriptures to solidify the base Scripture. When you fail to use this rule, you can make yourself sound so spiritual. Sadly in all corners of the globe where you see strange interpretations of Scripture, you will always see people accept it without searching the Scriptures. They take everything for face value.

Proverbs 14:15 says, “The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps.”

Many will argue their points of Scripture and sound very convincing. However, what stands above everything is the fact that God gave us sense. We also have the Holy Spirit and He will never guide you into error.

At MegaFest, this is what was prevalent. And it seems that they didn’t even care about who was watching that would say something that would rebut their activities. It’s like that verse of Scripture that one alleged pastor used of Proverbs 11:11 and G. Craige Lewis rebut that very well.

This is what the verse said,

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted,
But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

The city is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

The pastor that is preaching righteousness is made to be the one that is wicked and the preacher of righteousness is made to be the one responsible for the overthrowing of the city. While the wicked is made to appear righteous.

It’s been what the Spirit of God has shared.

It’s the criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sin.

This pastor had two of the three of Destiny’s Child come to the stage to receive a proxy apology of pastors that spoke the truth against their sexually explicit acts. It was made to appear that those that spoke truth in the Word of God about their lewd acts, were wrong. This is what the enemy, the devil set out to do from the time that he was kicked out of heaven. To make God be the bad guy and the devil is the good guy.

Isaiah 5:20 says,

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!”

Pastoral Sex Scandals; How To Avoid Them

Sex scandals. You know that another one is going to happen. It’s just a matter of when. Truth be told, there are too many undisciplined pastors, sexual predator pastors, immoral women, and Jezebels for another scandal not to happen. One too many is a stain that disturbs the integrity of the purpose of the local church.

Male pastors that fall into these sexual traps do so because of several things. I find that the root cause of all sex scandals is determined by what the pastor is or is not doing in four basic areas.

Number one, his relationship with God in his secret life (prayer & the Word).

Number two, his relationship with his wife.

Number three, his relationship with his peers.

Number four, his relationship with his congregants.

Number one: Relationship with God…

Quality time before God will help to keep most pastors from sexual scandals.

Most pastors have daily devotion. The quality of a pastor’s devotion is in his brokenness before God. When you are too busy to pray and read the Word for you and not for sermons, you are headed for disaster.

Acts 6:4 says, “…but we will give ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.”

Devoting your life to God requires that you pay attention to the quality of your relationship with God. Is God your friend or is He just God? Having said that, Secret Sexual Sins always creep up when a pastor is not serious about his personal relationship with the Lord. A pastor may know how to pray. A pastor may be a master at articulating and formulating words that sound so spiritual but do they come from the heart.

A pastor’s quality prayer life reveals the depth of his relational intimacy with God. Prayer is the vehicle by which we breath in the presence of the Lord. Prayer, when done correctly, serves as a reminded that we are in the presence, the holy presence of the Lord. Prayer keeps our heart right and in tune with God. Prayer keeps our heart sensitive to the Lord.

Psalm 27:8 says, “The Lord said to me, ‘Seek My face.’ My heart said to Him, ‘Your face, Lord, will I seek.”

This is the kind of praying that communes with God. Pastor Roger Jamison, a mighty man of prayer, calls it, “fellowshipping with the mysteries” (see Ephesians 3:8-11). Mystery in Ephesians has something to do with, according to Strong’s Greek/Hebrew Definitions “the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites.”

So what the Lord is saying is that if you really want to know secrets, fellowship with the Lord in the secret place. The Lord satisfies all our longings inside of us, including the longing to be intimate. True intimacy is when you no longer look to the flesh to find satisfaction as a horse chases after a carrot on a stick. God will satisfy every desire. Every need. Every longing in your heart. Provided you seek Him in the secret place on your face, seeking His grace to avoid disgrace.

You can put your hat on it. Secret Sexual Sins is the scandal behind the scandal. What is going on in a pastor’s private sexual life is the reason for all uncovered sex scandals.

Porn and masturbation is at the top of the list and the root cause of all sexual scandals.

Number two, his relationship with his wife.

Quality time with your wife will help to keep most pastors from sexual scandals.

Many pastors do not know or desire to properly relate with their wives. The pastor that fails to honor and esteem his wife but honors and esteems other women is a recipe for disaster. Most male pastors treat their wives with contempt, disrespect, and like dirt. Most male pastors treat a female congregant better than their wives.

The sinful secret life of a pastor is the root cause. When porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation is heavily in the life of a pastor, he will relationally and sexually distance himself from his wife. The wife will do everything in her power to save her marriage, however, when the husband’s heart is out of sync with God, ultimately, it spills over into his relationship with his wife.

When a man of God knows how to “perform” his ministerial duties like a robot on command, when it is time to stop performing, the real person shows up. He acts the part in front of the church, but lurking inside is the evil venom that porn produces.

Porn is perfect sex, with perfect submissive women, to give man perfect pleasures.

ALL LIES!!!!!

In a pastor’s delusional world, he will compare every woman against his wife. And when he is done, he will only have contempt, anger, and bitterness towards his wife. When Sister Suzy Cue comes, he is completely mesmerized and under her spell.

To prevent sexual scandals, a pastor must maintain his relationship with his wife no matter how “perfect” other women come. He must also regain “sexual sobriety” by prayer, the Word, and personal accountability partners that provide unavoidable, inescapable measurable accountability standards. He must also have a good relationship with his wife, including sex. Sexual sobriety is the ability to experience sex in healthy ways. This includes being able to do without sex or masturbation for sexual sobriety to be achieved.

He must honor and esteem his wife in front of the congregation at all times. It must be truthful and balanced. It must not be one sided. All husbands could say that the relationship is good but the congregation need to hear from the wife as the counter balance.

Pastor Roger Jamison said this to me and it is true. If you want to find out about the truth of all scandals, the majority of the time, all you have to do is look to the wife.

Number three, his relationship with his peers.

Quality time with your peers in transparent accountability will help to keep most pastors from sexual scandals.

This is the most difficult part. Male pastors love to protect their image. They want to appear smart, good looking, and “anointed.” Any blemish and they feel inferior or less than a man. When sexual stuff is discussed, it’s the taboo subject among men of God. When porn and masturbation is discussed, forget it. They will not show up to discuss it.

Why?

The secrecy.

If it could be kept a secret, and if nobody knows, then I can keep my secret activities going. All uncovered sex scandals is just a revelation of an ongoing sex scandal that took place, perhaps years ago. The first porn magazine or movie combined with masturbation. The first sexual encounter with a woman outside of marriage.

Molestation or incest or sibling sexual encounters. These activities have bound many men of God from pouring their sexual lives out because of the shame associated with it.

Granted, safe places must be established where the boundaries are established and where prayer, the Word, help, righteous judgment confrontation, and healing is ministered in a non condemning, compassionate way according to Romans 8:1-2, Galatians 6:1-2 and James 5:16.

If you don’t feel safe you will continue to escape.

Number four, his relationship with his congregants.

When a pastor betrays his trust, it is because they have crossed the line from helping people to helping themselves to sexually take advantage of an emotionally vulnerable female congregant.
On the other hand, there are boundaries that women do cross to set themselves up to connect with an “anointed” married or not, man of God.
In both instances, both are at fault. A pastor must maintain his professional distance to preserve the integrity of the office he claims to have received from the Lord. A pastor’s wife said that she didn’t mind if and when her husband complimented the beauty and dress of another congregant.
I beg to differ.
Traps are set all the time. Even in the most subtle ways.
Everything may not be a trap but why leave it to chance?
You would be surprise how long something could be meditated upon. Words of complement goes a long way in a woman’s world. So there must be caution at all times.
Sadly, women that do not experience compliments, let alone connections with men will attempt to connect with a man of God. The spiritual aura observed by woman upon a man of God is sometimes too much of an allure to resist. For some strange reason, the anointing is perceived as power and the man has to have something to make himself look attractive.
For a pastor to cross the line and compliment a woman, it makes her beam. It is called “The Law of Attraction.” Then it turns into a Fatal Attraction. When you are attracted sexually to a man of God, it is best that you find another church. It’s even better if you get help as well as search for another local church.
When a man of God fails to operate in complete integrity towards any member of his congregation, it is tailor made that a scandal can happen. To keep things on the professional level is difficult for pastors because he wants to be accessible to all of God’s people.
However, such accessibility must have restrictions because not everyone comes to church for the right reasons.
LADIES: Find your own husband if you are married. Single women, keep your distance from a married man of God. Trouble could be avoided when you maintain your distance.
PASTORS: Never counsel women by yourself. It is an invitation for sexual scandals. Should it become necessary to counsel a woman, refer them to your wife, if she is capable to minster to them. Refer her to an elderly woman in your church that has prayer and the wisdom of God on her life to impart wisdom to the younger ones. Or she must be counseled with your wife present.
No excuses or exemptions.
Look for the subtle traps they set. Leaving personal items in the pastor’s study. Leaving hotel or apartment or house keys at the church. Long personal conversations. Exchanging telephone or cell phone numbers. Doing personal favors. Riding with the pastor alone.
All of these are traps designed to set you up for failure.
When an attempt of a Jezebel spirit came before our church, my wife and I set the church on a prayer watch. It worked. When you have a prayer group, predominantly women intercessory prayer group that knows what to look for in the church, it is just a matter of time before the wool on a wolf causes the wolf to experience heat exhaustion.
PASTOR’S WIVES: Never assume innocence. Sadly, there was a time where innocent things appear to be just that. These days, that’s how covert sexually immoral activities start. It’s not that you are to be suspect of every person that comes to your husband, however, the devil is crafty and subtle. If your husband is smitten by a woman, he will not see it coming because his memory banks is filing everything about her.
It is your job to “remind” him to be careful.
When he doesn’t want to listen, you have to be very persuasive. If necessary, use tactful ways to let the women know that your husband is your husband. Serving notice on other suspecting women will help keep your husband safe.

You do not have to trip on folks. What you are doing is preventing disaster to your marriage and your church.

The devil does send “plants” called the immoral woman (I call them Moabite women) and he also sends the Jezebel. The immoral woman just want male companionship to fulfill relational connection needs. Jezebels will exchange their body for power. As long as Jezebel gives Ahab the use of her body, Jezebel expects to run the kingdom.
You can have a sexually scandal free church provided you implement these and other safeguards.
If you want to keep your relationship with God, your life, your wife, your family, and your ministry, avoid the very appearance of evil and stay on the alert.
