Intercessory Nightmares

On June 6, 2013 Gaylene Goodroad of the Discernment Research Group posted on the Herescope blog a series of articles, with a lead title Techno-Dimensional Prayer CombatIt is well worth one’s time to consider the contents of the Herescope blog, if you are interested in an in-depth analysis of the theology undergirding much of the Christian Alternative Media. This theological view has been given the designation of  Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm, or PPP by authors Gaylene Goodroad and Sarah Leslie, who have researched  numerous books and articles written by the proponents of this viewpoint.  It includes those ideas advanced by Tom Horn, David Flynn, Paul McGuire, Steve Quayle, Russ Dizdar and other like-minded individuals.

However, what I want you to focus on right now, is an interesting story contained in Goodroad’s article involving L. A. Marzulli and Russ Dizdar.  Both of these men are on the speaker roster of the 2016 Hear The Watchmen conference scheduled for Dallas next month.  The theme of this conference is that of a Crusade, with instructions to Saddle For Battle. Thus I will begin quoting Gaylene Goodroad’s article at the paragraph marked by the  subtitle,  Preparing To Engage Quetzalcoatl In Battle.

She relates, “An unsettling illustration of these un-biblical prayer warfare strategies unfolded during the months prior to the hysterical countdown to the failed 2012 Mayan Doomsdsay prophecies, which Herescope documented in detail, including in the article “12-21-12:  Evangelical Christians Believing Mayan Prophecies.” (23)  L. A. Marzulli, cited earlier as a PPP adherent with Latter Rain roots,(24) posted a 5-minute video on his blog in August 2012, appealing for funds ($12,000) from his flock,(25) so that he could travel with his entourage to the Mayan Pyramids in Chichen-Itza, Mexico on December 21, 2012 (the Winter Solstice)(26) – in order to do battle with the pagan god Quetzalcoatl who was expected to manifest on that date – “sort of like Elijah against the prophets of Baal.”(27)”

“Calling Chichen-Itza a “power place,” “ground zero,” and “the belly of the beast” with regard to its “open portals” of demonic activity, Marzulli enlisted the company of Russ Dizdar (author of The Black Awakening:  Rise of The Satanic Super Soldier),(28) Richard Grund (Director/Team Leader the Supernatural Response Team (SRT), (29) Larry Barrett, and Watchers videographer, Richard Shaw, to document the event.  The team, said Marzulli, was needed to “assist in the spiritual warfare we expect to happen there…”(30) Marzulli went on to explain his intended warfare:”

This is an amazing opportunity to represent the kingdom of God – to stand in the way of or possibly to confront what may manifest there on December 21st- the so-called return of the Mayan god, Quetzalcoatl…We feel that something is going to happen there.  Hopefully, nothing will happen there.  If it does, we’re going to engage in warfare and shut this thing down.(31) (bold added).”

“Although he initially assured potential Chichen-Itza donors that God was leading the effort to send out this spiritual warfare team, just days before he was set to fly into “the belly of the beast,”  Marzulli abruptly aborted the mission.  In a December 14 notice on his website, entitled “A Redirect from the Captain of the Hosts,” Marzulli reported that his daughter had been given a disturbing “prophetic dream” that revealed his kidnapping and murder by Mexican cartels.  “She awoke from her dream and was greatly disturbed.  She prayed and went back to sleep.  Then another dream occurred.  In it she saw a burst of light followed by a voice that instructed, Don’t go!‘ (32)”

Gaylene Goodroad ends this account of Marzulli’s adventure, saying, “Marzulli and his PPP spiritual warfare team never made it to the Mayan Pyramids.  The $14,000 raised by his flock was lost to Power Places Tours,(33) not to mention the loss of biblical discernment for all those involved with this ungodly endeavor.”

As you consider the false bravado of L.A. Marzulli, Russ Dizdar and their entourage who thought they could withstand the Mayan god Quetzacoatl, but ended up shaking with fear because of a daughter’s nightmare, so that God’s will was quickly cast aside, let us fast forward to events of this past week in this Alternative Universe.  The following QAlert  was sent out to millions of readers of Steve Quayle.com on February 25, 2016 concerning an incident which was said to have occurred the evening before.q alert 225 2016 (2)Now if this report is true, we are in agreement with Steve Quayle, that this attack on Timothy Alberino and his family is unconscionable, and needs to be resisted both by prayer and other types of actions. The problem, of course, is that similar QAlerts have been issued in the past by a hysterical Steve Quayle,  who afterwards leaves his readers wondering  what really went on.  I am especially curious what  Quayle means by a full scale operation had been launched.  His reference to Wednesday night would be February 24, 2016, and as I note in the next paragraph, Intercessors are pushed to the forefront of the  February 25, 2016 Paul McGuire interview on the Hagmann Report.

This particular interview centers heavily around Paul McGuire’s latest book, and also his upcoming speaking engagement at the Hear The Watchmen conference.  While McGuire says that he spends many hours a day researching, what he actually offers up for discussion are certain themes boringly common to most Alternative Media discourse on the internet. It is as if the so-called Christian Alternative Media has set up a Windmill with the blades of  Illuminati/Communist/Nazi/Main Stream Media influences on our nation, which these Don Quixotes  in turn attack, in fulfillment of some strong delusion that they are God anointed Watchmen.   Paul McGuire, who bills himself as a Senior Pastor of a local church whose physical location he refuses to disclose, also wants us to believe that he is an internationally recognized prophecy expert. And of course he is altruistic to the max, stating at the beginning of this interview that he is not getting paid for the interview, and does not want any compensation.  He also says that it took him years to get where he is today, influencing millions to listen to his “gospel”(translate DONATE) cause.

One of the tiresome qualities of the friendships of these men in the Inner Circle of Trust is their constant  flattery of one towards another.  And this interview reeks to high heaven with Hagmann’s over-the-top heaping of praise for McGuire and  his latest drivel in book format. The other day I read a comment from a woman on another blog which asserted that Doug and Joe Hagmann and Dave Hodges were only babes in Christ, and therefore exempt from critical scrutiny.  So I am glad to report that Doug Hagmann “got religion” in this interview,  pausing  a couple of times to give explicit directions to the  Intercessors to pray for Paul McGuire.  Normally, this is something that we are used to Steve Quayle doing; but tonight it is Hagmann who is letting the world know that  spiritual warfare intercessors are listening to the broadcast and interceding.

Paul McGuire espouses a theology which places a heavy emphasis on the Supernatural Powers of God, which he says can be downloaded by the believer just as one downloads computer Apps. Leading in a prayer for America near the end of the interview, he said that those who had joined him in prayer that night and have the spirit of God would feel a resonating in themselves. This sounds similar to what the Mormons identify as the burning in the bosom, a confirmation sign of the presence of God. If one reads the testimonies of many Charismatics, their beliefs are often founded on manifestations, rather than on the words of God.  To this the Bible gives warning in 2 Thessalonians 2 that the mystery of iniquity, “whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” is allowed by God as Strong Delusion to be sent to those, as a damnation, who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  Doug Hagmann at one point in his interview refers to Paul McGuire as The Tip of the Spear. And again he reiterates the Hear The Watchmen Crusade call to action, to Saddle For Battle!don-quixote

The last few minutes of this interview are dedicated to reproving those who have blogs and webpages “devoted to criticizing the brethren”.  We must note here that while the Hagmanns and McGuire retain the right of free speech for themselves, they do not consider that their detractors retain the same rights.   Consider for a moment that the Hagmanns and McGuire claim to reach millions with their words. How many blogs are there at this moment actively critiquing the words and deeds of these noble Watchmen?  And how many readers do these blogs actually have?

In the past couple of years, there were at least a half  dozen blogs which  had written articles on  this particular Inner Circle of Trust. Most of these writers are presently busy with other matters. Of interest is that Tom Horn’s book, Blood on The Altar  directs its venom against those who have written against a group of men which form the PPP, the Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm.  The primary researchers and writers who undertook this daunting task are Gaylene Goodroad and Sarah H. Leslie of the Herescope blog.  Unlike my blog which critiques the outer layer of deceit, the Discernment Research Group of Herescope delved into the depths of these false prophets, watchmen, and  authority figures.

Back in 2011, after confronting face to face, a series of men who were complicit in a spiritual attack which had been conducted against my young teen daughter, I began a blog called Starlitgardens.  It had one reader who I personally know, who is a Defender of the priesthood of the leopard Meroz. Later it seemed I had two readers, and I wondered if there were actually two persons, or just one disguised as two.  Later, I got tired of the bantering about of occult stuff, and I erased all those posts, and Starlitgardens became a blog to post sewing, gardening and painting projects and miscellaneous family photos.

In 2013 I began this blog,  Tracking the Leopard Meroz, with the intent of examining some things in my own background which led to my tracking of a sorcerer who is a Master of the Numbers of the Scriptures. This sorcerer is like Balaam, who was hired to curse or bless others. One of the real persons I faced off with in Texas claimed responsibility for causing the rash of teen suicides in Plano, Texas years ago.  Well, I dabbled around with several things on my blog, and then there was a six month period when I wrote nothing. Outside of this blog, I like to spend time with family and neighbors and church folk, garden, cook, clean, babysit, sew, paint, do volunteer work, laugh, look at the stars on a clear night, slosh around the beaches on the gulf coast…..

And then in February 2015, I began to observe the Christian Alternative Media closely.  But by the end of 2015, I decided to walk away from this tiresome mess, and began to write a book on my blog called The Art of Guileless Guile. However, in January of 2016 the Nathan Leal/Broer controversy surfaced, and I decided to flow down this river a bit longer.  At this point my readership has grown to a maximum of 143 per day.  It is hard to gauge how many individual regular readers I have, as some people check in once a week or once a month.  When a couple of days ago, I received an email from someone which asserted that it was my blog which the Hagmanns and McGuire were complaining about in the February 25th interview, I was surprised.

Now here is a curiosity:  a couple of days ago I received 54 troll-type comments; some of which were pornographic and threatening.  Thirty-two of these comments were attached to the Paul McGuire, Pastor of the Mailbox Church article, one was attached to a Nathan Leal post, and the remaining were attached to my John B. Wells/Doug Hagmann post.  At the same time a man shoved his way in front of me at the grocery store in an intimidating manner.  As I had just said hello to a lady from church, I was caught off guard, so when this person “got in my face”,  I reacted by walking away.  And now someone is claiming that I am the thorn in the side of the mighty Christian men of the Alternative Media.  Compared to the webpages of the Hagmanns, McGuire, Quayle and others, my little blog is just a little cork floating in an internet ocean.  Rather than addressing the issues I bring up regarding their PSY-OP methodologies, these Watchmen continue on, and on, and on, tempting God to judge them.

The one thing which shocks most people who have first heard of my “reputation” and then later meet me face-to-face, is that I am a soft spoken, shy person.  The battles which I have personally had to engage in over the years were entered in by me,  only because there were no other defenders, and I had been backed into a corner.  By temperament, I am not a fighter.  That I have held my own against wicked men is a surprise to me, and a display of the grace and mercy of God.  It would appear that all Christians, and even the least, which I am, are required to stand and withstand in the evil day.

If I had to name one main motive behind the writing of this blog,  it is to encourage Christians to develop their critical thinking skills and to learn to stand alone, if necessary, for Christian truth.

If indeed the Hagmanns and McGuire were taking aim at my Tracking the Leopard Meroz blog, I would just like to remind these false Watchmen, that I am an Intercessory Nightmare, as others like you, have found out.  God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty…that no flesh should glory in his presence…He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. ( excerpts from I Corinthians 1:27-31)

For those of you who will be attending the Crusade-Saddle for Battle conference in Dallas, have you remembered to check with the hotel about accommodations for your horse?  There may be restrictions against Old Nellie (I am not talking about your wife!) sleeping in the same room as you, in that extra queen sized bed. A reminder that the All-You-Can-Eat Salad Bar is for people only.  THINK!    As Steve Quayle is always saying, People just don’t understand…This is Critical!!!  And rumor has it, that he will not be attending this event.

Twin Horns of a Dilemma: The Love of the Wages of Unrighteousness And Controlling Your Own Devils

And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron.. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.  But Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee?  And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself. I Kings 22:11a, 23-25

King Ahab at Ramoth-Gilead

King Ahab at Ramoth-Gilead

Recently, I noticed that one of the Hagmann’s websites had been posting Sky Watch TV’s series of Tom Horn articles on Trolls. These series of articles are incorporated under the clever title, For Whom The Baal Trolls. Dr. Thomas R. Horn is a person of note, having pastored a local church, later serving in an administrative capacity for an evangelical association, and in the past few years becoming a book publisher, as well as an author, setting up Sky Watch TV,and selling prepper supplies at his Survivor Mall. Both his writing and his oratorical skills reflect a broad  knowledge of religion, history, and current events.  So with these attributes in mind, I thought I would take a look at what he has written thus far on internet trolls in articles 1-4.

In the first article posted January 21, 2016, Tom Horn used a definition of troll from a Psychology Today article quoting Professor Jennifer Golbeck who wrote “Let’s getting our definitions straight, an internet troll is someone who comes into a discussion and posts comments designed to upset or disrupt the conversation.  Often in fact, it seems like there is no real purpose behind their comments except to upset everyone else involved.  Trolls will lie, exaggerate, and offend to get a response.” I have highlighted this definition in bold letters, as this definition will serve as the plumb line to gauge how Tom Horn subtly expands the deviant behavior of trolls to include persons who write blogs.

At the very start of this first article we see a screen shot of a video of Lori Bakker on her husband’s TV program, The Jim Bakkar Show, with the words “God Hates Discord Among the Brethren”. This leads into a quote from Charisma News on 1/15/2016, wherein Shawn A. Akers referenced this particular show in his article called ‘This is the No. 1 Thing God  Hates’. Tom Horn notes that Lori Bakker quotes from Galatians 5:22-26 which describes the fruit of the Spirit as contrasted against “vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another”.

The article comments, “Not exactly a picture of today’s society, is it? Everywhere you go, especially in the media and on social media, you can find people criticizing each other and tearing each other down without conscience. And that includes Christians toward the world, and with each other. Evangelists Jim and Lori Bakker say, “This has got to stop.” “This is the No. 1 thing God hates,” Jim Bakker said. “God hates sowing discord among the brethren.”

So even before we get to the definition of trolls, Tom Horn has chosen to introduce his first article with God hating discord among the brethren, as opined by that televangelist fraud Jim Bakker, who presumably has repented from his former sexual proclivities and shyster-isms. The first thing to be noticed from these sources  is that they fail to provide the reader with the exact Scriptural verses undergirding the points they are making on discord.

Looking through the Bible, my eyes behold Proverbs 6:16-19, “These six things doth the LORD hate:  yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief. A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

Just before these verses of seven things which are an abomination to the LORD, my eyes spot verses 12-15, which also pertain to this discussion on discord. “A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.  He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually:  he soweth discord.  Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.”

Are you beginning to wonder why these verses surrounding the topic of discord were not quoted as they stand in the Bible? Why pick out one aspect which God hates, and declare that to be the Number One thing.  And why does Tom Horn exalt Jim Bakker’s opinions, who even after he got out of prison, refused to stay out of the “Christian Con Game”?    Perhaps it is because both Tom Horn and Jim Bakker are profiteers of the Prepper movement. And incidentally, both men also promote Jonathan Cahn, who has said that Jim Bakker had mentored him.

Now, anyone who knows me, also knows that I think that a prudent person does wisely plan for his own household, considering that they might have to ride out rough times ahead. My own parents and grandparents rode out the Depression and  World War II by having a home garden, canning and preserving food items, bartering, etc. I am not against Preppers.   I am against the shameless exploitation of the fears of vulnerable persons, who then end up purchasing items which are heavily marked up, often of inferior grade, and shipped at exorbitant costs.

In Tom Horn’s first article he quotes from research done on a concept called the Dark Triad, which is comprised of “Machiavellianism (willingness to employ cunning and duplicity to manipulate and deceive others)”, narcissism and sadism. Apparently these traits are also linked to internet trolls, with sadism being the “strongest characteristic”.  Because of the continuing nuisance of trolls, Tom Horn has an in-house policy which he calls BLOCK, FILTER, DELETE! I have no problem with such a policy when dealing with persons who meet the defined criteria of a Troll. Such persons are, if nothing else, time wasters; genuine and sincere dialogue is not the intent of a troll.

The second article in this Troll series deals with the unseen world of spiritual wickedness, and Tom Horn discusses how such entities might gain legal ground over various types of territories. The final paragraph is key, and states, “These are ancient statutory principles that pertain equally to material and spiritual dynamics.  They imply that wherever activity favorable to malevolent spirits occurs by consent, is tolerated, or action is not taken to force the “squatter’ to cease and desist, footholds and even personal rights can be surrendered to hostile forces over people and locations.  This is similar to the contract some Internet trolls are making with dark forces.”

The third article displays a screenshot at the top which states, ” Troll– internet- In internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the internet starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community.” This article begins by discussing his 1998 book which can be downloaded for free at the Sky Watch Store, called Spiritual Warfare:  The Invisible Invasion.  He rhetorically asks, What does this have to do with Internet trolls?  The answer given deals with territorial demonization, and the difference between those who are deceived by the demonic world versus those who knowingly form alliances.

From here Tom Horn presents in his fourth article the discussion of religious demons entering churches as a spiritual military strategy. And what is his starting point?  It is 2 Chronicles 18:18b-21a which he quotes as, I saw the Lord sitting upon his throne, and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.  And the Lord said, “Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-Gilead?  ”  And one spoke after this manner, and another saying after that manner. Then there came out a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, “I will entice him.”  And the Lord said unto him, “Wherewith?”  And he said, “I will go out, and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.”

In this respect, Tom Horn quotes David Wilkerson on the Satanic infiltration of the church -especially charismatic churches- by those posing as super spiritual Christians.  Horn says this includes Internet troll “theology cops”. Tom Horn reproduces some of his own words from his book Blood On The Altar regarding “fake defenders of the faith”. While he does not reference his book in this particular citation, anyone who is familiar with the February 10, 2015 Joint Response of Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann against “character assassination”, and the January 6, 2016 Hagmann Report radio broadcast where Steve Quayle also quotes from Blood On The Altar, notes the importance which this work is given by the inner circle of the Christian Alternative Media.

Tom Horn, again without identifying the exact Scriptural verses, paraphrases Matthew 18:15-17 which discuss the procedure to follow when dealing with a brother in the church who has trespassed against you, as another Christian. If you gain familiarity with false teachers and false prophets, you will discover that they always throw down the gauntlet of Matthew 18 to reprove those who are obeying the admonitions of the Bible on how to deal with false doctrine and heresies. This is a deliberate misuse of Scripture to shut down the truth, just as the goal of internet trolls is to shut down sincere  Christian dialogue.

Since the topic of these articles are internet trolls, which represent that Dark Triad of Machiavellianism, narcissism, and sadism, cannot we safely say that such persons are not brothers in Christ?  And if such dark personalities profess Christianity, are we to assume that their aggressive militaristic behavior is a matter which falls under the procedures of Matthew 18?  To do so, is to render the genuine Christian powerless.  Let us here observe at this point in the discussion,  that the Christian Alternative Media, under the banner of Watchmen, has waged an unrelenting campaign against a quiet faith in Jesus Christ and against believing and reading the Bible for oneself.  This is accomplished by a steady stream of fear mongering propaganda, false prophets, “Insider” men with hidden identities, the proliferation of badly written books,  overpriced prepper supplies, etc., etc. etc.

Tom Horn, after referencing Matthew 18, speaks words which are similar to his introduction to his Blood On The Altar book, saying, “With that in mind, the next time you are online reading some troll’s diatribe about Carl Gallups, Chuck Missler, Gary Stearman, Steve Quayle, L.A. Marzulli, Cris Putnam, Jonathan Cahn, Josh Peck, Gonz Shimura, Joel Richardson, yours truly, or any of the other current favorite targets, ask yourself if the hatchet people attacking them ever bothered to obey Scripture and go to the person PRIVATELY with their concerns in a loving spirit of restoration (they haven’t), and then “be careful little eyes what you read,” because these scripture-guideline-stomping destructive forces seek to contaminate your mind and spirit (see Proverbs 4:23-27) in order to draw YOU TOO over to the dark side.”

After saying all that, Tom Horn then says, “Be absolutely clear about this, as well:  NOTHING in Scripture allows for setting up websites, blogs, or other mediums to PUBLICALLY and routinely lambast believers with accusations – that is the job of Satan and his followers!  He is the father of lies and the “accuser of our brethren…which accused them before our God day and night” (John 8:44; Revelation 12:10).

Let’s pause here for a moment to summarize the movement of thought throughout these first  four articles on Trolls.  We start with  God hates discord among the brethren, and then move into a definition of an internet troll as someone who comes into a discussion and posts comments which disrupts genuine dialogue.  We then are told that trolls have deep underlying Machiavellian, narcissistic and sadistic tendencies, that they contract with dark territorial forces, and that there are internet trolls professing Christianity which attack true Bible-based websites.  So far so good, if we stick to the internet troll definition as someone who comes into a discussion and posts comments.

Suddenly we find that Tom Horn, who as a matter of policy, blocks, filters and deletes internet trolls, has now subtly redefined the standard definition of the internet troll to include anyone who has a website or blog who criticizes Tom Horn or any of his Christian business partners and book writers.  He calls such persons fake defenders of the faith.

So how about a real life example of a Christian brother who attempted to write Tom Horn with his concerns?  Let us see how Tom Horn dealt with this person.  Dr. Scott Johnson, who is a chiropractor, began several years ago recording audio tapes of his own Bible studies.  He first published these audio recordings, I believe, on the Sermon Audio website, but after he criticized another person on this site, he was told to leave.  So he started posting his audios on his own webpage, Contending for Truth.com.  When I first heard Dr. Johnson on Sermon Audio, he was a bit annoying; but over time, he started improving his delivery, and he has since made numerous Biblically sound warnings against false prophets and heresies.

Dr. Johnson did not come from a Christian background, and therefore like those of us with similar histories, he made every mistake in the book. He was deeply involved in Charismatic churches, and later in the Independent Baptist Fundamental churches.  I have always granted him leeway, despite not being in agreement with him on some issues, because for the most part he tests the spirits, and he loves sound doctrine.  An area which causes me to be a bit cautious is that Dr. Johnson used to be a speaker on the Prophecy Club circuit, plus it appears he relies too heavily on news reports coming from Steve Quayle’s website.  When he defended Dr. Dino, I posted  a  comment critical of Dr. Johnson’s discernment.  There was a point years ago when I dropped off listening to Dr. Johnson because of his lack of discernment of Tom Horn.  Eventually, he decided that he was mistaken and he wrote his concerns to Dr. Tom Horn.

Dr. Johnson sent Tom Horn an email dated August 28, 2010 regarding the promotion of Catholicism through videos and articles. If I remember correctly, Dr. Johnson had said that Tom Horn was acquainted with his name.  However, Tom Horn never replied to this inquiry.  Dr. Johnson is not an internet troll as defined by common consensus, and he tried to communicate privately with Tom Horn with his concerns.  Dr. Johnson went public with his email when his sincere communication was ignored by Tom Horn. If you look at the link above, you will also see that Dr. Johnson had some strong reservations regarding Tom Horn’s friends Gary Stearman and David Flynn.

There is a great deal of hypocrisy in the Christian Alternative Media, as some of these merchandisers routinely block, censor, and attack genuine Christians who question the soundness of their doctrine, yet consider it nothing to lambast such persons on air.  They exhibit a double standard when they block legitimate comments on their own websites, while at the same time they send around some of their own “plants”, lying spirits, to try to entrap the writers of Biblically based “discernment”  blogs whose comment sections are free speech zones. This has happened even here at  the Tracking the Leopard Meroz website.

In my case, each of these lying spirits ended up in the peculiar position of coming under the condemnation of their own words. You see, the word of God is a double edged sword.  Revelation 2:12-17  deals with the church at Pergamos, where Satan’s seat was, and the letter sent to it was from Jesus Christ, “he which hath the sharp sword with two edges”.  This letter reproves those who hold the doctrine of Balaam and also the doctrine of the Nicolaitans.  It is only those who overcome, which he gives the hidden manna and the white stone which has “a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”

One of the characteristics of  Charismatic Christian groups is that they are so obsessed with the world of demonology and their methodology, that they end up being unable to distinguish between Satanists posing as super-spiritual Christians  and genuine Christians who are obeying Scriptural admonitions.  Thus blinded, they fight against anyone who is against them.  Jesus Christ, as head of the Church and the sound doctrine of the Bible never enter into this battle of theirs at all.

Tom Horn says that someone who criticizes, say, for example, Chuck Missler, is a fake defender of the faith.  Here is an example of a blog called Revelationgate.com which features an article by Gaylene Goodroad called Chuck Missler and Plagiarism: Purloining New Age Ideas. The writer of this article has taken the time to explain her accusation by comparing line by line examples of Chuck Missler’s writings against a book written by Michael Talbot.  Should her thoughtful post be disregarded because she has documented a complaint against one of Tom Horn’s friends? Certainly this was never a matter of applying Matthew 18.  It is a warning however, about the veracity of Chuck Missler.

Tom Horn mentions the name of L. A. Marzulli as being the target of fake defenders of the faith.  He currently is on the speaker roster for the Hear The Watchmen conference scheduled for March 2016 in Dallas.  Perhaps we should pay close attention to how he personally deals with the on-going controversy involving Nathan Leal, Dr. Broer,  and Mike Kerr AKA Mike Whitestone.  After all, if Mr. Marzulli is a genuine defender of the faith, we will want to examine the example he sets in this rather peculiar situation.  With John Little setting the bar of integrity so high, the twin horns of a dilemma become that of the love of the wages of unrighteousness in the heart of all these Christian Alternative Media stars, and the matter of controlling your own devils.  As pointed out in the third article of For Whom the Baal Trolls, Tom Horn says that “having a demon” (echon daimonion) can actually denote a person who possesses the demon, and not the other way around.(his emphasis)

This conference has now been subtitled, The Crusade Begins:  Saddle for Battle and shows the feet of a horse running and kicking up dirt. Are they headed for Ramoth-Gilead, or what?  Have they called on the Knights Templar Crusaders to defend them? Have they forgotten that Daniel 5:27 applies to them?  “TEKEL;  Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.”  Ahab did not believe that and he fell at Ramoth-Gilead.hear the watchemen saddle for battle (2)

I would like to remind the leaders of the Christian Alternative Media that Jesus Christ said in Revelation 2:16, Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.  This he said in regard to those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, and also the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.(my emphasis).  You see, perhaps the Number One thing which God hates are the Nicolaitans and the sorcerers who are like Balaam, which cause so much of the discord in the church.

 

 

The Script Written in Blood of the Coming War of Christian Vs. Christian

Pastor David Lankford has long referred to himself as a Scriptorian.  I was once discussing this fact with another person and we got into a slighty humorous but fruitless discussion of the definition of the word Scriptorian.  I understood it to mean a person who liked to do calligraphy, like the monks of old time who decorated copies of the Bible. scribe The person I was speaking with thought it meant an expert on the Bible who had memorized scriptures. The problem with the word scriptorian is that it cannot be found in the largest and older dictionaries, at least in the main library I wander through.  On the internet, I found two people arguing about the definition, and one of them kept saying that he couldn’t find the word in the dictionary either.   Jack Van Impe was for years referred to as The Walking Bible, because supposedly he had memorized the entire Bible; but I can’t recall anyone referring to him as a Scriptorian.

When I entered the word into an internet search engine, I found that this word is widely used by the Mormons.  I did locate one Primitive Baptist church site which had a glossary of old time church slang words used down here in the south, and the word scriptorian was mentioned.  In this latter day sense, the word means someone who memorizes a great deal of scripture, and a Master Scriptorian is someone who memorizes even more than that, but no one defines what quantity must be memorized in order to achieve this notable title. Coming from a Baptist background, we had pastors which recited the scriptures by memory in their sermons, as they paced back and forth before the congregation, or wandered down the aisles preaching to the back row.

In my case, I am not good at rote memorization. In the fifth grade we had to memorize the Gettysburg Address, and I could not get past the second or third sentence.  The day I had to prove myself before the teacher I began to cry, and my best friend asked what was wrong.  “I can’t remember the Gettsyburg Address”  I wailed.  “Ahh, so what?  What does it matter anyway.  I didn’t even try to memorize that thing”, she said.  That day I was set free.  I started to question the importance of what I had been told was required of me.  So when I had been told to memorize the Scriptures by rote, I took another approach which has served me well.  I decided to take a verse and try to understand it so thoroughly that my heart knew the words intimately.  As I read the scriptures through, I began to discover that my mind was creating an in-built concordance which allowed me to locate the placement of certain key verses in the different books of  the Bible.

So why am  I even bringing this subject up? Well, in the January 6, 2016 Hagmann Report which I transcribed here, Lankford, the self-proclaimed scriptorian,  quotes some twenty plus sections of the scriptures as he criticizes those who criticize him.   In the same radio broadcast,  Steve Quayle also reproves some unidentified persons for thinking that Doug or Joe Hagmann ought to know the Bible, saying that neither has ever claimed to be scriptorians. So here we see the use of this word scriptorian, whose precise meaning we have to guess at,  which is used by both Lankford and Quayle to establish levels of  Biblical expertise.

This raises the natural question as to why Doug Hagmann, who once attended a Catholic seminary for a period of time, has been exempted by Steve Quayle from understanding basic Biblical truths. Did he not go to seminary hoping to study the scriptures?  Does not even the average Christian so-called pewsitter have a responsibility to attempt to study the Bible for himself? And who are these people anyway who assert authority over the person in the pew through the use of nebulous titles and degrees?  Now sometimes higher education does result in a deeper investigation of the doctrine of the Bible, and such scholars and pastors are to be given double honor for edifying the body of Christ with their knowledge. However, we are warned of a group of men referred to as the Nicolaitans, who promote the doctrine of being conquerors over the church.

A  huge question mark arose in my mind,  when I first heard something which was said by Pastor Lankford at the beginning of  the January 6th radio show.  Here is what he said:  “Now no one preaches any harder against sin than myself, but I have been accused in the last several weeks of being a compromiser, of being two faced, being labile.  I have one lady who emailed me and said you need to swallow your pride.  You’ve not corrected the doctor and mast your lot with the other gentleman.  I don’t cast my lots with no man.  Moses didn’t ask who’s on his side.  That’s what Korah asked.  Moses said, Who’s on the Lord’s side?  I ask you tonight, Whose side are you on?  I’m on nobody’s side.  I don’t take sides.  I’m going to walk with God, because God is always and forever right.  God is not full of error,  his word is not full of error, and my ministry has had a shadow cast over it because I did not react.  Now listen to what I just said.  My personal ministry, I have 20-30 emails myself.  The Hagmanns have had hundreds.”

Now of course, the main point that the Christian is to take the Lord’s side, and not be a respecter of persons, is something which we can all agree on.  But for Lankford to assert his impartiality towards men, given his respecting the persons of Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann over and above God, ought to raise a few eyebrows.  Immediately, “the concordance in my mind” noted that two Old Testament stories had been intertwined like a vine as if they illustrated the same point, which they do not. Pastor Lankford does not tell his listeners that the Moses quote actually comes from Exodus 32:26 which says, “Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the Lord’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him”.  This is a different historical event from the Korah rebellion.  The background of the Exodus story is that Moses went up the mountain, and when he did not return as quickly as the people would have liked, they had Aaron make them a molten calf which they worshipped and sacrificed to, saying, “these be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.”

Exodus 32:31 says, “And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold”. One cannot help but notice the irony of the context of the verse which Pastor Lankford quoted, as his great friend, Steve Quayle, is certainly noted for making gods of gold, which he sells against the backdrop of a coming disaster scenario.

Now in verse 27, Moses instructs the Levites who answered the call, Who is on the LORD’S side with this instruction:  “Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his neighbor”.  Did you get that?  The Israelites sinned a great sin, and the Levites, by coming to the LORD’s side, and not being a respecter of persons, were instructed to slay their brothers.  This act established the Levites as the priest class of Israel.  Blood on the Altar, brother slaying brother; the basic theme of Tom Horn’s book Blood on the Altar, The Coming War between Christian Vs. Christian.

Now the other Old Testament story which Pastor Lankford alludes to regards Korah, who represents the rebel asking who is on his side? Although Lankford does not cite the scripture reference, this story is found in Numbers 16, and no where in this story does Moses ask who is on the LORD’s side.  Now this story  involves Korah, who is the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, gathering 250 “princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown” against Moses and Aaron. The complaint which they made was that “Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them:  and the LORD is among them:  wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD?”  This is the Old Testament version of a New Testament Baptist Church split.

This matter was resolved by Moses through prayer whereby  Korah and his company were to take censers and put fire therein.  It would be the LORD himself who would show the congregation who in fact was the LORD’s chosen for the positions of authority granted to Moses and Aaron.

To summarize, Pastor Lankford has likened to Korah,  the hundreds of emailers who wrote the Hagmanns and him.  Perhaps he views himself as a sort of Aaron, in this whole embarrassing situation involving Leal and Dr. Broer.  I have read comments on the internet suggesting that Steve Quayle considers himself to be a sort of Moses figure.  Intertwined with this, is the situation of the golden calf event, where subsequently the priesthood of Israel was established based on the loyalty of the Levites to God, which was proven by the shedding of the blood of their own brothers.

There are other Old Testament references used in Lankford’s January 6th monologue.  At the very start,  he uses Exodus 20:26 to illustrate the fact that God hates the flesh. Since most of the listeners to the Hagmann radio show are professing Christians, you would think it would be natural to quote Romans 8:8, “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” But no, Pastor Lankford has chosen another Old Testament command dealing with the priesthood which says, “Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon”.  This is in reference to verses 24-25, “An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen:  in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.  And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone:  for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.”  In modern day America, the popular motif which comes to mind is the hewn stone altar pyramid on the dollar bill, which of course the Christian Alternative Media says will be destroyed shortly.

Later, Steve Quayle refers back to the prayer which had been spoken by Pastor Lankford in which he used the image of anointing oil running down.  Quayle says, “…And that’s what David prayed.  I don’t think you know the scripture but basically he was praying about the oil that ran down Aaron’s beard, the anointing oil”. Now the specific scripture reference is not noted.  I am guessing it might be Exodus 29:7, “Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.”  This chapter deals with the consecration of the ministers of the priest’s office.

At the conclusion of the first hour of the January 6, 2016 Hagmann Report radio broadcast, Steve Quayle brings up the introduction he wrote to Tom Horn’s book  Blood On The Altar, saying “when I wrote the introduction, see how prescient this is”.  On January 17, 2016 he quoted this entire introduction as a QAlert over at his website, stevequayle.com.  The theme of this book deals with a coming bloody war of Christians against Christians.  Reference was also made to this very book in the article dated February 10, 2015 called Setting The Record Straight: Joint Response Addressing the Character Assassinations Underway.   If you have not read this article recently, it would do well to reflect on what is established by Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle regarding their self proclaimed purity as the Watchmen of God.  Also note the end quotes concerning Tom Horn’s Blood On the Altar, and the veiled threat implied. The final words are written in blood red, saying Indeed, there is Blood on the Altar.

A Script fit for the Great Scriptorians hoping to establish a new Priesthood upon the altar of the blood of Christians against Christians.

Weaving the Spider’s Web

 

“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?
