SPLENDID NEW ARTICLE BY TREENA GISBORN ON THE FIASCO AND SCANDALS AT VICTORY CHURCH IN CWMBRAN

WELSH OUTPOURING: RICHARD TAYLOR AND ANDREW PARSONS FINALLY EXPOSED AS FAKES AND LIARS!!!

The scandals at Victory Church in Cwmbran are now unravelling dramatically, with the exposure of seediness, sexual scandal and financial wrongdoing. Richard Taylor, long rumoured to be having multiple extra marital affairs, has now “resigned” from both Victory Church and Victory Outreach UK (VO UK) after inappropriate sexual behaviour involving a woman in the congregation was discovered. Richard Taylor and Andrew Parsons have also been suspected of shady financial dealings involving Victory Church and VO UK. This matter also seems to be coming to light with the “resignation” of Andrew Parsons from Victory Church. Sadly he still has his claws into VO UK but hopefully not for very much longer.

Jesus Christ warned us:

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.

These two scam artists have managed to deceive a great number of people with their fake "Welsh Outpouring". People travelled from all over the UK to see the unholy spectacle, and it was spreading like gangrene to other churches, both in Wales and other parts of the UK.

None of the alleged healings and miracles were ever verified and all the claims made by Taylor et al were hot air and hype. Taylor and Parsons qualifications for the ministry were completely fake. There were many tell-tale signs that these two men were false, and yet people continued to believe in them – preferring to believe a lie.

If these two clowns managed to deceive many so called “Christians”, what will be the outcome when the Antichrist appears?  This man will be an evil genius indwelt by Satan himself who will come with wicked deception along with lying sins and wonders. God will send judgement - and that judgement will be a strong delusion upon those who reject the truth and prefer to believe what is false. He will make Taylor and Parsons look like mere infants in comparison.

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thesalonians 2/8-12)

Those true Christians who were genuinely fooled by the farce known as the "Welsh Outpouring" do need to take stock now and learn a vital lesson. We cannot afford to simply accept any old rubbish that comes along in the guise of Christianity – OUR ETERNAL DESTINY DEPENDS ON ACCEPTING TRUTH AND REJECTING ERROR. 

JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUTH AND HIS WORD IS TRUTH (John 17/17).

The Bible tells us to test the spirits:

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error. (1 John 4/1-6)

You may say that Taylor and his cohorts did confess that Jesus Christ came in the flesh…. Yes they did didn’t they? This is why the whole counsel of God is so very important:

The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. (Psalm 119/160)

Seek the LORD while he may be found;
call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. 
(Isaiah 55/6-9)

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. (Revelation 21/8)

TOMMY TENNEY RETURNS TO SOUTH WALES, TO PREACH "ANOTHER GOSPEL" AT VICTORY IN CWMBRAN!


TOMMY TENNEY AT VICTORY CHURCH, CWMBRAN, 17TH SEPTEMBER. 

"As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him."
(Proverbs 26:11-12)


Back in May last year, an article was published titled 'The Welsh Outpouring - a Refreshing or a Deception?' Sadly, it now proves pertinent to repeat a key paragraph from that pivotal article, with the trumpeted return of Tommy Tenney to the scene of the sham "Outpouring" on Wednesday, 17th. September, 2014:


One of my greatest concerns about this Cwmbran "outpouring" is that the Pastor - Richard Taylor - has as his mentor Tommy Tenney, who is intimately connected with the Brownsville, "Pensacola Outpouring." Tommy Tenney is undoubtedly a false teacher, who wrote the best-seller "The God-Chasers" which basically teaches that the Bible is a mouldy collection of old love letters; Scripture is where God has BEEN, and Christians need to chase after where God is NOW! The Bible is PAST TRUTH; REVELATION is where God is NOW. This in itself should be screaming out a warning that Tommy Tenney is in grave error, and a heretic to be avoided at all costs! Yet the Pastor of a Church proclaiming a new "outpouring" is profoundly influenced by this man, who was himself intimately connected with the previous FALSE "outpouring" at Brownsville.
( From: http://watchman4wales.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/the-welsh-outpouring-refreshing-or.html )


Here are some quotes from "The God Chasers" by Tommy Tenney (my emphases):

"God chasers... are not interested in camping out on some DUSTY TRUTH known to everyone."

"The difference between the Truth of God and revelation is very simple. Truth is where God has BEEN."

"A true God chaser is not happy with just PAST TRUTH; he must have PRESENT TRUTH. God chasers don't want to just study from the MOULDY PAGES of what God has done."

"There is a vast difference between PRESENT TRUTH and PAST TRUTH. I'm afraid that most of what the church has studied is PAST TRUTH, and very little of what we know is PRESENT TRUTH."

"I'm afraid we have satiated our hunger for Him by reading OLD LOVE LETTERS."

Consider. Was not the Word made flesh, in the Person of Jesus Christ (John 1:14)? Scripture and the Lord Himself are that inseparable! How dare any man pour such scorn on the Word?

"It's OK, God! I'm coming! I'm not weighed down, 
now that I've binned that mouldy, outdated Bible!"

WELL QUITE AMAZINGLY THE TEACHING OF TOMMY TENNEY LAST WEDNESDAY EVENING WAS "FROM THE LORD", WHETHER HE KNEW IT OR NOT!! 

How do I know this? Well a good contact of mine from Victory Church, Jonathan White who is in the know there, was present to hear the message even though many of the VC leaders (some of whom who were instrumental in inviting the American several months previously), including Richard Taylor, Andrew Parsons (pictured below), Kenny Brandie, and others were absent for one reason or another in view of the recent scandals taking place at Greenforge Way!

I guess Tenney might have been confused to see so many of his former "leadership friends" missing, and I gather he was not really fully informed of the dismissal of both Taylor and Parsons from the leadership team? A more "diplomatic" reason was afforded him for their absence!

Anyway, back to the message, and he took as his theme for the evening the Biblical account of Eli, and his two sons HOPHNI AND PHINEHAS, from 1 Samuel 2: 12-36 (Please read this).

Elkanah and Hannah brought Samuel to Eli the priest to be raised by him in the ways of the Lord. When his parents went back home, Eli began Samuels's training. Samuel then "grew in stature and in favour with the Lord and with men" (verse 26). 

Now, although Eli trained Samuel in the ways of the Lord, and to be a Godly man, he failed in that same area with his own two sons, HOPHNI AND PHINEHAS. In a time when it was said, "In those days Israel had no King, everyone did as he saw fit" (Judges 21:25), even the priestly sons of Eli were corrupted by the world!

We need to learn about the disobedience of Eli's two sons. They did not care about their responsibility to serve God and His people, and they took the issue very loosely indeed. We should be able to learn a very valuable lesson here, as we consider the consequences of their rebellion. God is very concerned how we serve Him and His people, for our service to Him must be with a right heart.

Eli’s sons were called "SONS OF BELIAL", or worthless men. Why? They did not know the Lord. Walking with the Lord is truly a choice. Even if our parents are saved and train us in the Lord, we still have a choice to either walk with Jesus or away from Him.

Eli's sons turned their back on their father's God. What was the result in their lives? They misused the offerings of the Lord, turning it into a way to satisfy their own lusts. God told his people to bring sacrifices to Him in a certain way:

They were to remove the fat from the meat and burn it separately; then, the priests were to receive a portion of the meat for themselves and their families. (This was how God provided for the priests and their families.) However, Eli’s sons twisted the beautiful intent of sacrifice. Before the fat portions of the meat sacrifice had been placed in the altar-fire for the Lord, the priest's servant came and demanded that they be given meat from the sacrifice.

They would put a big hook into the meat and take more than they were supposed to. And if anyone complained, they would take it from the people by force. How little they cared about God and His people whom they had been given responsibility to serve! They broke God’s law and robbed His people. Their actions were so bad that people did not want to come and sacrifice to the Lord any more. They had misrepresented God to the people, destroying the beautiful picture of what God provided for us in Jesus Christ—forgiveness of sins.

THIS WAS A TERRIBLE THING IN THE EYES OF THE LORD. It is important that we, who say we know the Lord and serve Him, not misrepresent God. If we treat others poorly, they may decide they do not want anything to do with the Lord. The word “minister” means servant. Whether a priest in Old Testament days, a pastor, a teacher, or a Christian, our lives need to be about serving others in such a way that they will be attracted to Him and not pointed away from Him. Our service to God must be with a right heart and a clear conscience.
God prepared to judge the sons of Eli with death for their wickedness, as depicted in the images left and right (verse 25). We read more of the demise of HOPHNI and PHINEHAS in 1 Sam 2: 34-36 and 1 Sam 4: 10-11.  

BEFORE the Lord judged Eli’s house, He sent a prophet to warn Eli of the judgment coming upon them. In order to prick Eli’s own conscience, he pointed out to him the grace manifested in the choice of his father’s house (the house of Aaron). The Lord then described the terrible way that Eli’s sons had abused that privilege. The choice of the family of Aaron was still there, but disgrace would come upon those that hated the Lord.

THE PROPHET WENT ON TO EXPLAIN THAT THE STRENGTH OF ELI'S HOUSE WOULD BE BROKEN; and all the members of his house would die early deaths. They were not, however, to be removed entirely from service at the altar (verses 31-34). But the Lord would raise up a faithful priest and cause him to walk before His anointed, and from him all that were left of the house of Eli would be obliged to beg for their bread (verses 35-36).

The fulfillment of the faithful priest came in ZADOK,  (2 Samuel 8:17) of the family of Eleazar, also from the line of Aaron. He became the high priest in the beginning of Solomon’s reign (several years after this). He was faithful in serving the Lord properly--all of the high priests that followed ZADOK came from his line as long as the priesthood continued. 

The failure, evil, and sin of those who minister, though it will destroy them, cannot destroy the ministry. God’s work will never fail because of a lack of hands to carry it on. What a sad story of two hardened young men who, unable to heed warnings from their father, were destroyed. What a sad story of a father who could not control his sons. However, what an encouraging story of a young man, Samuel, whose heart was soft toward the Lord. He stood as a bright light shining in the darkness.
God has called us to love Him and serve Him with all of our heart. When the Lord calls us to serve Him, we must not serve ourselves. May we never be guilty, as were the sons of Levi, of misrepresented
Him. May our hearts be soft toward the Lord, as Samuel’s heart was, and may our lives shine to the glory of God. Our service to God must be with a right heart.

Well, what has this got to do with Victory Church in Cwmbran I hear you say? Well, TOMMY TENNEY chose this theme for his message last Wednesday APPARENTLY unaware of the dismissal of Richard Taylor, and most certainly unaware of the resignation of Andrew Parsons, as this did not take place until very late on the Friday evening.

Was it a word from the Lord? Or was it just a coincidence or a godincidence? Whatever view you take of this, many of the congregation like Jonathan White knew the deeper application of the ministry (GIVEN BY THE LORD), likening the failures of HOPHNI and PHINEHAS to those of Taylor and Parsons, who failed so dismally in the eyes of the Lord having been brought up by their Christian mentors to know better in how to serve Yeshua!

Unfortunately, the majority of the congregation up at Greenforge Way have been kept in the dark about some of the recent very sad situations. Many of them do not read the internet to find out what is going on around them according to Jonathan White, many of them do not even bring a Bible to Church, and they just rely on what they are told from the pulpit, whether it is Scriptural or not!! UNBELIEVABLE BUT TRUE!!

Many of them could not, and DID NOT want to believe the facts when they were told that Richard Taylor (pictured above) had been banned from Victory Church and VOUK for FIVE YEARS because of his several moral failures. He was their mighty hero, and they could not believe this was happening to them! Taylor was even found guilty of sleeping with another woman in the church (note the similarity with verse 22)!

And now Taylor's partner in crime has been forced to resign from Victory Church as well for his wrong-doings, These two will face judgement from the Lord just like HOPHNI and PHINEHAS, for not doing what what they were supposed to do for the people at VC, and for leading them astray with their false teachings, false prophesies, and false miracles!

This needs to be a living example to us as well as all of the people up at the Victory Church in Greenforge Way, Cwmbran. We pray that leaders at Vc and the leaders at the Elim heirarchy will have the wisdom of God as they choose their new men to take this former vibrant church forward in the name of Yeshua.

And we too, are called to serve the Lord, in what ever small way that may be. We will either end up as good and faithful servants for the lives we live as unto Jesus, or bad and unfaithful stewards (Matt 25: 14-30). "Gold, silver and precious stones" types of Christians, or just "wood, hay, and stubble" type of Christians (1 Cor 3: 10-15). We will still be SAVED if we fail HIM at times, but in some cases it will be like going the refining fires of the Lord (v15). Read also 2 Timothy 2: 11-15 re this reward type of teaching written by the great Apostle Paul again.

The Islamic Ghost that Haunts Obama

By: David Rubin
We are a product of where we come from, in addition to our essence, and in addition to the many influences that we absorb along the way. ..Whether Barack Hussein Obama identifies as a Muslim or as a Christian (which he claims to), the fact is that he had a Muslim father (which according to Islam makes one a Muslim) and then a Muslim step-father.

Beheading Infidels: How Allah 'Heals the Hearts of Believers'

By: Raymond Ibrahim
To understand why the Islamic State not only decapitates its “infidel” captives, but also mutilates and mocks their corpses—and all to sadistic laughter—one need only turn to the Koran and deeds of Islamic prophet Muhammad.

Obama's Self-Defeating Fight

By: Caroline Glick
The United States has a problem with Islamic State. Its problem is that it refuses to acknowledge why Islamic State is a problem...Their pride at the beheadings of James Foley and others is part and parcel of their hatred for the US and the West. As they see it, destroying the US and the West is a central goal of IS.

Keep the Pyramids, Give Us the Colosseum

By: Simcha Jacobovici
The Egyptian archaeological community is in a tizzy. They are accusing foreign Egyptologists of being Israeli agents hell bent on altering their history. It seems Israel’s ultimate goal is to reclaim the Pyramids.

Obama and the 'W' Word

By: Michael Freund
So Washington has decided to go to war against the fanatics of the Islamic State. Or has it? After President Barack Obama addressed the American people from the White House last Wednesday and spelled out his proposed strategy for dealing with the threat posed by IS, his administration quickly tripped and fell headlong into a crater of confusion.

Why Many Arabs and Muslims Do Not Trust Obama

By: Khaled Abu Toameh
Many Arabs and Muslims identify with the terrorists’ anti-Western objectives ideology; they are afraid of being dubbed traitors and U.S. agents for joining non-Muslims in a war that would result in the death of many Muslims, and they are afraid their people would rise up against them.

PLEASE DO NOT MISS THE DYNAMIC DR ARNOLD FRUCHTENBAUM FROM TEXAS SPEAKING AT TURF IN CROSS KEYS TONIGHT AND AT BASSALEG TOMORROW, AND THURSDAY IN SWINDON. THESE ARE MEETINGS DEFINITELY ONES NOT TO MISS!

Dear Friends,

What a treat we have for you TONIGHT (Tuesday the 16th Sept) at TURF in Cross Keys when we welcome to Wales and the West Country the fabulous Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum from Ariel Ministries in the USA on his British tour.

This great man of God probably needs no introduction to you, but for those who are not familiar with his work and witness, here is his biography taken from his splendid website:

Biography

Arnold and Mary AnnArnold Fruchtenbaum was born in 1943 in Siberia, Russia after his Jewish father — falsely accused of being a Nazi spy when he fled Poland from Hitler — was released from a Communist prison. With the help of the Israeli underground in 1947, the Fruchtenbaum family escaped from behind the Iron Curtain to Germany, where they were confined to British Displaced Persons' camps. There, Arnold received Orthodox Jewish training from his father before the family finally immigrated to New York in 1951. Before their release, however, the family was befriended by a Lutheran minister; and it was this contact that eventually led Arnold and his mother to the New York headquarters of the American Board of Missions to the Jews (ABMJ). Five years later, this same meeting brought Arnold, at age 13, to saving knowledge of Jesus the Messiah.
Arnold and Mary Ann (Shoshanah 1989)His father strongly opposed Arnold's beliefs, and when the family moved to Los Angeles in 1958, Arnold was forbidden to read the Bible, attend Christian meetings or associate with Jewish-Christian groups. Under these difficult circumstances, Arnold continued as best he could to maintain contact with Jewish believers and to walk with the Lord.
Upon graduating from high school, Arnold was forced by his father to leave home because of his faith. In 1962, he began undergraduate education at Shelton College in New Jersey. Transferring to Ohio's Cedarville College, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Hebrew and Greek in 1966. He then moved to Israel, where he studied archaeology, ancient history, historical geography, and Hebrew at the American Institute of Holy Land Studies and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. During this time, he witnessed the historic Six-Day War in 1967. Later that year, Arnold returned to the U.S. and entered Dallas Theological Seminary for studies in Hebrew and Old Testament. He also began working as a missionary with ABMJ (today, Chosen People Ministries).
Arnold was married in 1968 to Mary Ann Morrow, a graduate of Gordon College in Massachusetts. Three years later (1971), he graduated with a Master of Theology degree from Dallas. He and his wife then went to Israel, settling in Jerusalem to work with the local church and to train young Israeli believers for Christian service. Their activities for Christ drew much attention and anger from the religious authorities in Jerusalem, who eventually applied enough pressure upon government officials to force the Fruchtenbaums to leave Israel in 1973.
Arnold and Mary Ann (2008)For the next two years, Arnold served as a minister and as editor of the monthly publication, “The Chosen People,” with ABMJ at its headquarters in New Jersey. In 1976, he joined the staff of The Christian Jew Foundation as associate director of the largest Hebrew-Christian broadcasting ministry in the world.
That summer, Arnold met with others in the field of Jewish missions to discuss the problem of the lack of discipleship and the need for intensive biblical and theological training for Jewish believers. The early concepts of Ariel Ministries were born at that time. In December 1977, after a year and a half of prayer and much encouragement from like-minded Jewish believers, Ariel Ministries became a reality. Arnold continues to serve as a director of the ministry and is in great demand as a conference speaker.
He has traveled widely in Europe, Israel and the United States, becoming intimately acquainted with the messianic movement in all its forms and struggles. The completion of his dissertation, Israelology: The Missing Link in Systematic Theology, was the culmination of 13 years of research for which he earned his Ph.D. at New York University in 1989. Dr. Fruchtenbaum has authored numerous published works and recorded many Biblical studies of keen interest to both Jews and Gentiles. We share with you the fruits of his labor in the “Messianic Studies” pages of this website, as well as that of several others who share his vision to reach Jewish people for Messiah.

Back to the present, and to let you know the dates and venues for the three superb meetings we have lined up for you in our region:

First of all Arnold be ministering at The Upper Room Fellowship (TURF) at Oak House, 6A, Risca Road, Cross Keys, Newport, NP11 7DG (a PWMI meeting) TONIGHT the 16th Sept at 8pm. If you get lost, below are pictures of the front and side entrances to "TURF ABOVE CREATION" -what a fantastic name! It is right next door to the Cross Keys railway station. His subject for the evening will be "THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH" (but a real in-depth study not the wishy-washy stuff you hear in some churches)! For any further information please phone Neville Stephens on 07808 251502.

On Wednesday the 17th after a good night's rest in the locality, Arnold will move a few miles down the road to the next venue along with Trevor and Maggie Stewart-Sweet who have taken a lot of time and trouble to arrange this special British tour of our dear American guest. For any further information please phone Neville Stephens on 07808 251502.

And yes, you have probably guessed, it is at the fabulous 17th century farmhouse and special Christian meeting place of NANCY'S FARM IN BASSALEG, JUST OUTSIDE OF NEWPORT. also starting at 8pm. The subject for this venue will be "THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF REVELATION" (another in-depth study of this great Book of the Bible). The full address is Croesheolydd (Nancy's) Farm, Penylan Road, Bassaleg, Newport, NP10 8RW (tel Nancy Williams on 01633 893210 if you get lost). Pictured below is her magnificent home and grounds:

And on Thursday Arnold, Trevor and Maggie will be moving out of South Wales, and crossing over the Severn Bridge and the border into England to make the relatively short 62 mile journey down the M4 to SWINDON, and to be hosted by my very good friend, and brother in the Lord, the "handsome and debonair" Tony McLellan! 

This too promises to be a great evening, and Tony informs me that already many, many people are travelling long distances to hear this great man of God. There is also a fair sized contingent from Wales travelling to be blessed for a third night running, so please get there early to reserve a seat. Seriously folks, there are plenty of seats available at the new PWMI branch venue of THE CHURCH OF GOD OF PROPHECY, BEECHCROFT ROAD, SWINDON, SN2 7RD (pictured below) Please phone Tony on 07931 421157 for any further information and details of how to get there. 


This meeting starts at the earlier time of 7.30pm, so please make a note of this. Arnold's topic for the third leg of this part of his tour is "THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ANTICHRIST" (yet another very in-depth treatment of this fascinating subject). 

Arnold, on this major teaching tour, is also ministering at venues in Dartmoor, Bere Regis, Southampton, Ipswich, London, Ilford, Southend, Dunfermline, Sunderland, Southport, Sheffield, Stockport, Stoke on Trent, and Reading before coming to us in Wales (in that order). Therefore we are very privileged to have this great Bible Teacher in our midst for three consecutive nights at the end of his exhausting tour of the United Kingdom. 

So there you have it friends. What a treat and something for everyone I would suggest. I promise that if you attend just one of these fabulous meetings, you will not be disappointed. So come along, and meet Arnold, Trevor and Maggie and the rest of of us. You will be assured of a very warm welcome. 

MARANATHA BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL,
NEV, TREVOR AND MAGGIE.
