California Episcopal Church Holds ‘Beyoncé Mass’ Where Hundreds ‘Worship’ With Her Songs!

“We have a community that is youthful and loving and looks to the world as a partner, not an enemy,” Reverend Jude Harmon said speaking to the crowd.

I guess Jude Harmon doesn’t care what God says about being “partners” with the world. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, now ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” James 4:4

A “church” in San Francisco, California raised eyebrows with an event they called a “Beyoncé Mass.” With matters such as bibles being outlawed in California, this “church” has nothing better to do with it’s time than to pay homage to Beyonce. 
 
With hundreds in attendance, Grace Cathedral Church says the event is a chance for people to find God through secular music. Others calling it “evil,” saying they’re trying to substitute Jesus with Beyoncé.
 

“We have a community that is youthful and loving and looks to the world as a partner, not an enemy,” Reverend Jude Harmon said speaking to the crowd.
I guess Jude Harmon doesn’t care what God says about being “partners” with the world. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, now ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” James 4:4
 
Harmon says mostly in attendance are people of color and the LGBT community, including, “People on who other people’s narratives have been projected. Just to be honest, the church hasn’t been the best about lifting up those voices.”
 
To take things a step further, Rev. Harmon goes on to say that Beyoncé is “a better theologian than many of the pastors and priests in the church today.”
 
“That is not an exageration,” Harmon states.
 
The video includes examples of Beyoncé’s “religious symbolism” in her music and performances, from dressing as African deity’s, the Virgin Mary, and scenes in her videos that reference the Last Supper.
 
The event’s organizer, Rev. Yolanda Norton, told ABC7 News she uses Beyonce as a way to bring diverse groups together to talk about God.
 

 

Norton is an Assistant Professor of Old Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary who teaches a class she calls, “Beyoncé and the Hebrew Bible.”
“People think we’re worshiping Beyoncé, none of that is true,” she said. “This is a way to have different kinds of conversation.”

During the service, Norton said in a separate interview, they use lyric’s from Beyoncé’s songs as examples of what the crowd’s prayers to God could be. She said the service focuses on empowering women of color and other minority communities.
“I’ve been asked time and time again, ‘Why Beyoncé?'” Norton preached to the crowd during the mass. “I believe she reminds us that you have to do your thing your way, you don’t do it on demand, you don’t do it for your oppressor, you don’t sing when they want you to sing…you sing when God calls you to sing.” 
 
Many even pointing out parts of scripture that they say rebuke this type of gathering, including 2 Timothy 4:3-4 and Galatians 1:8.
 
2 Timothy 4:3-4 
“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
 
Galatians 1:8 
“Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you.”

 

The U.S. Episcopal Church Amends the Terms “Husband and Wife” To Find Favor With the LGBT Community

Very soon traditional marriage vows will be outlawed and a thing of the past as the Episcopal Church in the United States leads the way in amending the terms “husband” and “wife” from its marital liturgy compromising the standard of God to find favor with the LGBT community.

MMMMMMM
Very soon traditional marriage vows/ceremonies will be outlawed and a thing of the past as the Episcopal Church in the United States leads the way in amending the terms “husband” and “wife” from its marital liturgy compromising the standard of God to find favor with the LGBT community. Phrases related to “procreation” will also be deleted, to not offend those who do not identify as heterosexual despite what the bible they read each Sunday says about homosexuality.
 
According to LifeSite News, the change aims to make the church’s marriage ceremonies more “gay-friendly.” Indeed, Gay and lesbian Episcopalians have been increasingly vocal in their complaints that the language of the current liturgy (the same liturgy that has been in effect for decades) is now considered offensive and exclusionary. Being a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the US Episcopal Church comes under the loose governance of the Church of England, and consequently the Archbishop of Canterbury.
According to the Telegraph, the Church of England’s Secretary General William Nye has been heavily critical of the change to such a sacred text and even threatened to cut ties with the U.S. church if it decides to introduce the new service as standard, and toss out the current wording in its Book of Common Prayer.
 
The drastic change would see the new service replace the phrase “the union of husband and wife” with “the union of two people.”Couples will still be able to opt for the most traditional “husband” and “wife” when making their vows, but this will not be included in the standardized version. In his letter, Nye urged that using the new language as standard would lead to a growing “pressure to dissociate” the Church of England from the U.S. Episcopal church, warning that conservative members would see any such change to marriage liturgy as “completely unacceptable.” Nye warned the Episcopal Church to avoid “irrevocably redefining marriage” through railroading their new liturgical language into Church proceedings.

However, many liberal members of the Church of England have voiced their support for the move, and hit back at Nye for speaking on their behalf.
 
“Thank you for leading the way on this important issue,” a group wrote in an open letter posted online.
 
“We are grateful that you have recognized that not all married couples can have children and that a gender-neutral approach will enable us to become a loving and inclusive Church for all. We still have a few problems to sort out over here with those who keep threatening to leave, but we know that your actions have given great hope to thousands and shown that the Church is not as homophobic as it can sometimes appear.  We therefore want to publicly ‘dissociate’ ourselves from Mr Nye’s initial response and are expecting ‘stringent consequences’ as a result of his actions.”
 
Another liberal faith organization affiliated with the Church of England penned a direct response to Nye following his published letter.
 
“You will be aware that your previously undisclosed letter to The Episcopal Church has been met with anger, frustration and disappointment by many across the Church of England, on whose behalf you presume to speak,” read a letter from OneBodyOneFaith, addressed to Nye.
 
In its “About Us” section, OneBody’s website reads:
 
“OneBodyOneFaith works for the full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual. transgender and intersex people in the Christian churches. We believe that human sexuality in all its richness is a gift of God gladly to be accepted, enjoyed and honoured as a way both of expressing and growing in love, and that it is entirely compatible with the Christian faith not only to love another person of the same sex, but to express that love fully in a personal sexual relationship.”
 
The head of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, has continued to affirm the traditional definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. With that being said, Welby made some controversial remarks in a November 2017 interview in which he stated that he was unable to say whether sodomy is sinful or not.
 
“You know very well that is a question I can’t give a straight answer to. Sorry, badly phrased there. I should have thought that one through,” Welby told former Labour Party spin doctor Alastair Campbell in a candid interview at GQ Magazine.
 
“I don’t do blanket condemnation and I haven’t got a good answer to the question,” he added. “I’ll be really honest about that. I know I haven’t got a good answer to the question. Inherently, within myself, the things that seem to me to be absolutely central are around faithfulness, stability of relationships and loving relationships.”
 
Welby continued: 
 
“I am also aware – a view deeply held by tradition since long before Christianity, within the Jewish tradition — that marriage is understood invariably as being between a man and a woman. Or, in various times, a man and several women, if you go back to the Old Testament.  I know that the Church around the world is deeply divided on this in some places, including the Anglicans and other Churches, not just us, and we are — the vast majority of the Church is — deeply against gay sex.”
 
Welby added: “I don’t think it is sinful to say that you disagree with gay sex. But to express that by way of hatred for people is absolutely wrong in the same way as misogyny or racism is wrong.”

“This is why “the church” has lost it’s credibility and effectiveness in the community. The modern day church goes with the flow of the world instead of standing for and implementing an example of holiness as God requires despite who is offended by it. The actions of the Episcopal Church in the United States and it’s supporters is a blatant mockery of Christianity and the message of Christ. There is absolutely no fear of God in today’s church- the true gospel has been watered down, and commercialized and is in the hands of perverts masquerading as church leaders. Those who claim to be true lovers of God should come out of Babylon before it’s too late!” ~ Catherine Sutton/ Winston Salem, NC

Two Lesbian Pastors get married

Gause’s father, Mr. Gause, citing “differences in theological beliefs,” refused his daughter’s invitation.

Two black American lesbian pastors, Twanna Gause and Vanessa Brown, tied the knot on August 24th at the New Vision Full Gospel Baptist Church in East Orange, New Jersey.

Gause’s father, Mr. Gause, citing “differences in theological beliefs,” refused his daughter’s invitation.

“My father would not come here because he does not believe in same-sex marriage,” Ms. Gause said. “He told me the devil tricked me into this, and that if we had been married in biblical times, we would have been stoned to death.”

Ms. Brown, 46, and Ms. Gause, 45, are both pastors of Rivers of Living Water United Church of Christ.

American prophets made in Africa

There are certain shrines (oracles) in West Africa where people go to take SPIRITUAL BATHS to become a “prophetic papa” with demonic wonder working powers. Using mediums to predict the future, reveal secrets, and manifest fake miracles

While on vacation in West Africa I met a spiritualist who gave me names of American pastors who go to him for “spiritual fortification” to perform fake signs and wonders in their churches, he has given some of them magic that they wave in their handkerchiefs in church to make people fall out (the congregation will think that it is “the anointing” that’s making them fall). I became very interested in this scheme of the enemy so I interviewed an African man [who is also a missionary worker, author and teacher] named Mordecai Egwuowu Uka Dike asking him everything that I could think of regarding demonic powers in Africa, and how Americans/Africans dabble into this arena of witchcraft to obtain power to fool church goers, and here is just a little of what he shared with me: “There are spiritualists in Africa; Senegal, Mali, Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Congo, Benin Republic,Togo etc. who can fortify someone with a familiar spirit and the person will instantly begin to see spiritual things that the natural eyes cannot see. In 1993 someone called Prophet Peter, whose “church” was at Obalende, Lagos Nigeria (right opposite of P&T) tried to initiate me into his secret prophetic brotherhood, he said he loved the zeal that I have for the Lord and wanted to help me by giving me extra ordinary powers to prophecy and to manifest miracles.

In Niger Republic 2000, while serving as a missionary in Konni village, one of the oldest Muslim spiritualists offered to give to me “miracle working powers” he inherited from his ancestors, in which I refused. When the main “O O Obu,” known as the spiritual head of the Brotherhood Of The Cross and Star was still alive, I personally know certain preachers that went to him and received “a spiritual gift” to function as seers. When TB Joshua came to South Africa (I was there as a missionary worker) some “ministers” went to him secretly to receive spiritual impartation, so that they can attract large crowds and function as prophets. There are certain shrines (oracles) in West Africa where people go to take SPIRITUAL BATHS to become a “prophetic papa” with demonic wonder working powers. Using mediums to predict the future, reveal secrets, and manifest fake miracles through demonic powers is not something new, it is an ancient practice but our African ancestors did not use these ancient mystical powers to operate churches. It’s frightening how young people these days are conjuring up these old deities and using their powers to fool people in their so-called churches, calling themselves prophets and prophetesses. What most don’t know is that they are going to pay a bitter price at the end here on earth, except they confess their sins and do away with those mediums. Don’t be deceived, not every person who calls himself or herself a prophet or gives an accurate prediction is a true prophet. There are many occultists, witches and wizards, psychics, shamans, and spiritualists in churches today predicting future events such as accidents, promotions, telling you your name, address, bank account information, phone numbers and so forth to gain recognition and to lure innocent souls into darkness. Let us not forget that EVIL SPIRITS can prophesy too and work miracles….

I was in a place called “Dogodoutche” in Niger Republic, there I witnessed Bori (idol) worshipers levitate, prophesy, and they spoke in tongues when evil spirits known as “Zanzana”, “Dango”, and “Donkawa” possessed the worshipers. I have also encountered a spiritualist who told me what and how I prayed in my prayer room. There is no doubt that some wizards and spiritualists can monitor what you are doing wherever you are- there is no distance in the spirit realm!”

As mentioned earlier, just because someone makes an accurate prediction doesn’t mean that he/she is a prophet of God. Just remember that prophets, diviners, psychics, and spiritualists outwardly look very much alike and all have the spiritual ability to reveal hidden things, foretell futures and manifest “miracles” as a genuine prophet of God has the ability to wear a suit, or a white collar to preach in a pulpit, so can a magician transform himself or herself and put on a suit or dress with a bishops collar, change his/her occultic language to biblical language, and preach and prophesy in Christian’s church services and it’s happening every day; there are numerous dark spiritualists performing in “churches” today and the people are completely oblivious because they don’t know anything about the spiritual reality.

BEWARE of Serpantdiwa

Makandiwa claims that “God is evil” adding that “the Creator regularly needs a prophet to instruct Him”.

False Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa says he “coaches God on righteousness and sin”, while saying that “God’s adviser who is greater than Jesus Christ lives in Ghana”. In a speech to his church exalting so called “Prophets” Makandiwa said his role is to “stop God from sinning”.

He uttered these words while introducing his spiritual father, (who is also a false prophet) Victor Kusi Boateng while preaching. Makandiwa claims that “God is evil” adding that “the Creator regularly needs a prophet to instruct Him”.

False prophet Makandiwa added saying, God was about to commit sin and was only saved by a prophet, Moses. “Some of you do not understand how God respects the office of the prophet,” he said while stating that “God was taught by Moses of the Bible, lessons on how to manage his anger”.

This blasphemous sermon was recorded and can be found online, the extreme sad part about this is that none of his congregants rebuked him! They continued to listen to him in total agreement! He told his congregants that “On that mountain Moses continued to serve a God who he helped to become God, how can you follow a god like that?” What more does anyone need to hear or see for their eyes to be opened to who this serpent really is? He is not a prophet of God, nor a follower of God, he wasn’t sent by God but uses the name of God often and often when he preaches to deceive his congregants. The rise in fatal automobile accidents have increased since the Zimbabweans have welcomed this anti Christ and has submitted to him, they don’t realize the spiritual implications of following and submitting to this false prophet- his abilities don’t come from God, they come from Satan and he has to offer sacrifices to his god to remain empowered. You will see the downfall of this agent of darkness but you will also witness the demise of many others who are linked to him, who support him, and who receive prayer and anointing from him. Some would say that the increase in automobile accidents is just a coincidence, but I tell you it’s not! If your spiritual eyes aren’t open you wont be able to perceive the truth and THAT’S WHAT HE IS COUNTING ON. Most of the accidents involved his own church members and people he gave “mantles” to. If you love God, if you care anything about your family, your community, your state or even your country, don’t invite this serpent or ANYONE associated with him to your church, to your home or anywhere else.
