“Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider’s web.” Job 8:14
What would you think if two men were to approach the throne of God asking for judgment against their persecutors, and they would begin by describing themselves in the following words? Obedient watchmen as referenced in Jeremiah 6, men who with abundant prayerful consideration in obedience with God’s word, are free of any destructive antipathy, not motivated by pleasure, carnal desire, the need to be proven correct, or without fault in the eyes of man; Watchmen, with sobriety and solemnity, whose charge is to provide accurate and scripturally sound information and doctrine to those who seek it, we serve our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ solely at his pleasure, accountable for our actions before God, God will judge our earthly ministry, taking note of souls lead to the Lord, sound Biblical doctrine, no deviation, judged more harshly for causing anyone to stray from unity under God; God made a way for us, the ability and responsibility to act as purveyors of truthful information…
And then these men describe their two detractors as very slanderous and libelous, making public accusations, charges against the positions and ministry and persons of the two Watchmen, abundance of malice by deliberately causing confusion, chaos, enmity among the body of the church and God’s remnant, serve the master of lies and deceptions, as history also shows examples of those who wrest souls from God, and derail watchmen through numerous overt and covert means, slanderous and libelous statements and postings in public forums and venues, accusation caused chaos, confusion and doubt, one-sided, contextually biased, selectively fabricated, a well-coordinated and malicious campaign of slander and libel, to which Matthew 18:6 applies, which says, “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea”. ; a Christian truth seeker hiding behind a fictitious identity, elusive in answering certain questions about professional connections, making nuisance type allegations on the internet, insipid series of slanderous, libelous and malicious attacks against us that are completely untruthful, deliberately misrepresented, or contextually inaccurate, inconceivably incompetent or deliberately untruthful or both,rabid attacks to malign reputation, something much more sinister and propelling, aside from mere maliciousness, duplicitous and deceit, obsession, not respect boundaries of personal life of accused, sinister, demonic forces assailing true Christian ministries by fake defenders of the truth, hatchet people, destructive forces seek to contaminate your mind and spirit to prepare you for service to the dark side, a spiritual war, unseen hand of enemy at work.
I am reminded of Job 9:20 which says, “If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me; if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.” From what document did I excerpt the above contrasting descriptions? They can be located in an article entitled Setting the Record Straight; Joint Response Addressing the Character Assassinations Underway, written by Douglas Hagmann on February 10, 2015 at http://www.hagmannandhagmann.com. I recommend that any curious reader pull up the original Hagmann article, as well as the articles at http://www.revelationnow.net and http://www.marinkapeschmann.com, and read carefully this “war of flowing ink” for themselves, and form your own independent conclusions.
At the end of this Joint Response, seemingly written by that secret and pure brotherhood known as the Cathars, two scriptures are quoted: I John 4:6, “We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” and 2 Corinthians 13:8, “For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.” The final sentence, written in red is “Indeed, there is Blood on the Altar”. Really, whose Altar?
After reading all of the articles in question, I side primarily with Marinka Peschmann’s observations and questions, and do not see that Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle have indeed set the record straight as to their integrity before God and men. Thus I assume that in the eyes of the Joint Response I also have become the enemy of these Watchmen. Do I think that they serve the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ with their radio show and blogs, and with their February 10th public justification? No, they are wrong to cast aside all of the reasonable questions which many have asked about the integrity and motive of their “ministries.”
Job 11:2-4 asks, “Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified? Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed? For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.”
One of the photos online show Doug Hagmann in his radio studio with a set of balances behind him. The Joint Response with its presumptuous display of self righteousness, is as Job 31:5-6 declaring, “If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot hath hasted to deceit; let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know mine integrity.” Very well, let the Scriptures be as The Angel with the Drawn Sword of the Knower of Hearts, with regard to their weaving a spider’s web. For as Hebrews 4:12-13 tells us, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”
We know that “He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong”. (Job 5:13) Perhaps Steve Quayle will be revealed as the Men of Meroz, who received a bitter curse in Judges 5:23 because they came not to the help of the LORD against the mighty. Perhaps Doug Hagmann, as Number 70900, will be revealed as the return blow of that strong high priest described by Ezekiel 21:24 which says, “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that all your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.”
“Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.” says Proverbs 21:24. And Job 40:11-14 declares, “Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him. Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place. Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret. Then will I confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.” There is a spirit behind the declarations of Setting the Record Straight: Joint Response Addressing the Character Assassinations Underway, that is not right with God. If there be blood on the altar, it is the altar of Proverbs 21:24 and Ezekiel 21:24. Who holds the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18)? And does the Lord consider that the sheep scattered on a thousand hills are to pay a tithe to the ministries of Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle? Should we cast a white stone or a black stone into the voting box?
