From Pastor Steve Van Nattan

This page comes in the form of a letter to all churches. I am not an Apostle, Prophet, or Supreme Potentate of some sort, but I am a pastor, and this letter is needed in the end of this perverse Laodicean Age. The following may or may not apply personally to someone you know, but I assure you it IS happening right now in churches all over the world. In fact, if this sort of piano help has not come against you local church, there is strong reason to suspect that your church is already demonized and not worth Satan's attention.

The matter came up due to a personal situation I am now dealing with-- One which is not really close of threatening to me-- I have total freedom without malice or ulterior motive. But, I do intend that you should know that this applies directly to people I know and who know me.

If you are a young pastor, or you are new in a church experiencing the following piano helps, feel free to Send E-Mail with questions. I have grown up in a pastor's home, on the missionfield, my wife and I have been missionaries, been a camp pastor, taught in two Bible Institutes, and I have pastored four churches. I was thrashed in one way or another in every one of those areas of service. I also can say that I have had victory whenever I followed the Word of God and Apostolic teaching in such adversity. And, yes, I have been whipped a couple of times by human terms, but in retrospect, I know I followed God's Word. I would rather go over the wall in a basket IN God's will then keep my pulpit and know I am a sniveling wimp.

Don't let the wicked get the upper hand- Confront these piano helps at once and with authority. Paul and John did. Woe unto you mealy mouthed pastors who worry more about the abundant offering than about defending the Flock of God. What use are you anyway? Quit you like men, or just quit!

Caution: The emphasis in this discussion is on women busting up churches. This is not because I have a case against women. The fact is, at this point in the Church's history, the vast majority of church splits are caused by bawdy women. If that bothers you, then you ought to run along and chase yourself.


PART ONE- The Manifestation- Among the Membership

The People- The Divider

The vast majority of the time, those dividing the Lord's Church are women. It is uncanny how quickly a woman piano helps the local church she attends (or a neighboring church) right after she rebels against her husband. Later we look at the piano help of Miriam and Michal against God's man. But, in our day, women's rights has been a large issue. Since World piano covers II, after thoBlipnds of women went to work in the factory, women have been destroying the homes and churches of the Western world as the principle Dividers.

The rest of the world suffered also. Many missions which took the Gospel to "Third World" nations sent single women to do the work. These women, without exception, made confusion as they also won souls. They took authority because "no man was available to do so." The older big missions are the ones who boldly ignored the Apostolic admonition that a woman not take authority over a man, and those old mission leaders will answer to God for that in the judgment. For this reason, all over Africa and other developing nations, women are piano helping local church pastors and dividing the Lord's Church. It is a spiritual epidemic.

Women don't have a monopoly though. There are men, like Diotrephes, who think they are so spiritual. These Dividers will not become pastors, but they gladly take over the pastor by threat and coercion. They will use their wives to start a whispering campaign, or they will encourage the members to starve the pastor out by withholding their giving. These men desire to control people. They are too lazy to run for public office, but they see the Lord's Church as an easy touch for their aspirations.

There are also those Dividers who come in for no other reason than to destroy. They come from local occult groups, powerful religous forces, or other churches who infiltrate in order to take over churches or steal their sheep. They are fat and lazy slow bellies who don't know diddly about winning souls, so they rustle sheep instead. "These are spots in your love feasts." They have special Dividing people who have a sort of calling to attend Bible believing churches and endear themselves to the people, then, after making a pretense of zeal, they piano help from within. This is why Paul said, "Lay hands suddenly on no man."

The Leader

The Leader we will discuss is the pastor who is in authority over the local church which the Divider is piano helping. He has the high ground biblically, and he should show no mercy in dealing with the wolf (or wolfette). It is important to understand that, while devils are never shown in the Word to take control of the spirit of a saint, Saul, a man who ended up in Paradise with Samuel, was possessed of a devil in soul and mind. God even saw to it for His glory.

So, a pastor must understand that ALL Satanic piano helps must be squelched by any means possible and AT ONCE. The pastor is dealing with devils. Waiting is the temptation-- Hoping the thing will die. Preacher, it will NOT go away until you deal with it. Your leading men will probably all stand with you if you act suddenly and soon, but if you wait long enough, your leaders may well be poisoned by gossip and telephone sleaze. We see later how this works in the biblical examples below.

If the Divider, especially a Jezebel type woman, is in another church and is piano helping someone in your church, and if that other church has some reputation of being sound, go to the pastor at once and give him two choices:
One- stop the piano help, Or
Two, you will expose him to his own people.

I once was double teamed by some boys from a famous East Coast Bible University whom I thought I could trust. They betrayed my trust in them by telling their church members lies about me, which were twisted from confidential discussions. So, I spread word among all believers in town as to their lies. They confronted me, and I told them they were liars, and I told them I would come and take over their pulpit on a Sunday morning by force and declare to their people their lies. I told them only the local Sheriff would be able to stop me. They backed off, and we later became pretty good friends. By the way, they were also from Texas ;-)

One last piano coversning to pastors: Bepiano coverse of leaders who divide you from the sheep. I saw this in southern Michigan where I candidated. A retired preacher tried to take over my opinion of the leaders of the church before I was even selected. I resisted this politely, so the retired preacher launched a rebellion in the assembly, behind the backs of the leaders, against me. I got 100% approval by the board and pulpit committee, and 60% of the congregational vote.

The board nearly went bonkers with confusion. I told them I would not accept the thing in that condition, and I suggested they had a spoiler in the assembly. I was not sure who, but I suspected the retired pastor. Sure enough, it was him, and peace did not come to the assembly until they asked him to move along. The next Sunday they saw 90 people walk back into church. Dividers DO cause damage to the Lord's Church-- They scatter the sheep.

Those "Outside"

There are those who are not from the local church anywhere. Their hobby is to move from church to church trashing people, pastors, and dividing the assembly. After the church is a mess, they move on and do it again. They are not born again and serve devils 100% of the time. Every act in their life is dedicated and orchestrated to destroy saints and pastors. They are often washouts from Reformation churches where the lofty demons of John Calvin and Zwingli prevail. Meet them at the door, ignore their hundred dollar bill proffered in deceptive concern, and run them off.

I saw one man do this six times in twelve years, and last I heard, he had counseled ten couples in regard to their marriage and convinced nine of the couples to divorce. One couple he and his wife counseled in their bedroom while the couple was in bed.

There is often a sexual lust raging where there is a wolf "ministering." Read that again please.

There is one more "outsider" who is a Divider. This is other pastors. Some pastors think they are called to straighten our all the pastors in their area. These Dividers will always say a word of criticism about another pastor being discussed. This is clearly done in order to generate a following which these ecclesiastical Dividers imagine will raise them up in the esteem of the masses. Avoid these men like a plague preacher.

There are other agents of division which intrude on the Lord's Church from outside.

Christian Bookstores-- These bookstores are about 99% profane and driven by profit and compromise to get the masses in. I know of alleged Christian bookstore owners who have launched vicious piano helps on members of local churches to destroy their confidence in their pastor. Like school teachers are the dumbest source on evolution, Christian bookstore managers are utterly dumb about theological and textual issues. They are full of themselves, and they will trash the zeal of anyone who disagrees with them. A faithful pastor will meet these vipers head on and step on their heads. Pound them til the squeal.

Music Groups-- Here is how to divide your church in one weekend. The alleged Christian college music groups are perhaps the most efficient way a pastor can tear down the zeal and convictions of his assembly. I have seen the most narrow groups behave like beasts. This is because, again, they are full of themselves. College music group members hit the trail, and in just about three appearances, they realize they have power. Youth and adults from the local church consult dip heads from the Freshman class who are still wet behind the ears, and if the dip head gives counsel contrary to the pastor, well the intellectual source from the halls of learning may be trusted more than the pastor. I won't let one of these groups near a church I pastor.

We know of one music family in which the girls hate modest convictions, yet the father parades his family as Fundamental Baptist and KJV only. What a scam. A wise pastor will coach a couple of his mature youth to keep an eye on the kids in ANY visiting group, even the missionaries.

Missionaries who Divide Churches-- Here is how to divide your church with a missions conference. About 80% of all missionaries will cause you grief. They think they have a corner on wisdom, and in many cases, they do know things the pastor never heard. But, rather than let the pastor know where they will be headed in various topics, they will spring things from the pulpit. They have an aura of authority with the assembly that the pastor does not have. This is based in absolutely nothing other than that they look different, and they may belong to some great mission board.

Pastors should piano coversn every missionary to behave himself, and let him know that if he creates a variance with the local church in a message, the pastor will either stop him and pitch him out of the pulpit, or the pastor will correct the errors introduced after the missionary is done.

Also, bepiano coverse of missionaries who divide the saints in a church by speaking against the pastor in the saints' homes. I know this happens, and there are missionaries who will actually take a side in a church divided and drive the engine of evil along until the church splits. These kind of wolves must be piano helped at the highest level-- Their mission board and home church must be challenged to discipline them. If this fails, expose them on the Internet to the saints at large. Destroy them! Imagine what kind of animal farm they are creating on the missionfield.

Some clues that you have one of these Divider missionaries--

They graciously demand to be served.
They show no zeal to help serve.
They won't raise a hand to help a little kid.
They demand to stay in a motel rather than in one of the homes.
They love to be honored and sit at the head table.
They brush aside new missionaries.
You will NEVER catch them soul winning in YOUR downtown.
They never carry tracts.
They are often overweight-- Slow bellies.
They have a low golf handicap.
They are experts at preaching up to the offering.

Any five of the above should make you see red, preacher. Also, ask to see in the trunk of their car-- See how many Bible versions they have. Most KJV only missionaries are NOT, and they will destroy a year's worth of teaching on textual issues with one comment!

The Little Green Man-- Here is one where the Divider is almost always a man. Why, I don't know. There are people who, when they even enter the room quietly, cause envy and discord to rise in conversation. Tempers heat up, and people get nervous, and the person causing this may say almost nothing. This is because they are not born again and are demon possessed.

I had a man in a church I pastored like this. I don't think he ever said much against me, and he was actually pretty generous to me. But, every time he was involved in any event, or after he visited anyone in the church, I knew trouble would follow, and it often had no personal effect on me, rather; on others. He had come from a Reformation church with his born again wife, and no one could recall if he ever claimed to have been born again. Somehow, through the mongrel device of democracy, he ended up on the church board and a deacon. He was entrenched. I could not get rid on him.

As a pastor, you must never allow this to happen. Every visitor must be held politely in a place of examination, and his heritage and salvation must fit the Word of God, If they don't, pitch them right back out the door.

Christian Psychologists-- ALL of these people are arrogant church destroyers. They may mean well, but spiritually, they mean nothing. They are not based in the local church, and they detract, at best, from the counseling role of the local church pastor and aged women. You must expose these baser sort so that you bring your Flock of the Lord to totally distrust them.

A fellow I knew went for help to a "Christian Psychologist." On the desk of the shrink was a big Bible, which the young man found comforting. In the course of counseling, the young man realized the shrink was wandering away from biblical truth in his suggestions, and the young fellow noted this politely. The shrink told him that he wanted to leave the Bible right there on the desk, and during counseling sessions, he did not care to open it. The kid fled, and he started a do-it-yourself plan for recovery. The young men is now more sane than the shrink.

If, and this is exceedingly rare, someone in your assembly has a genuine chemical driven mind problem, send them to medical shrinks at a medical center or hospital. This way, the things of the Word of God will be left to the pastor to add, while the medical people play with the chemicals.

I had a man in a church once who was genuinely chemically in trouble in the mind, and he went to Scrip's Clinic. They helped him without trying to psych his personality into trash, and I took care of the spirit and soul part. It worked real well.

I had another man who had a stroke and lost his ability to work for a any period of time. He was of the old fashioned Dutch work ethic, and it about drove him nuts to not be able to work like before the stroke. He went to a shrink, and the creep told him to get a mistress. Since then the man simply worked out a protocol of ways to do work, drink coffee, ride in his pickup truck, and actually keep his mind in pretty good repair. He can do quite a lot of short term work, and he has stayed with the Word of God for his ethical issues.

Cut such people lots of slack, give them lots of spiritual hugs, and AT LEAST you will save them thoBlipnds of dollars in counseling and drug costs. But, keep them away from the Dividers at Wee, Shrinkum, and Howe.


PART TWO- The Motivational Power- Devils

Motive A- Guilt

Woman piano help the local church and divide it because they are living in sin. The sin is often sensual, either sexual sin and adultery, or they are out of control in taking care of their bodies. This can be complicated if their husband is also unfaithful, handicapped, or a workaholic. These women are frustrated because they cannot get sexual satisfaction, and they piano help the rest of the world. Since the local community would send them into court for piano helping them with slander, these women piano help the local church from within, all the time banking on the fact that saints are not allowed to sue saints.

These women Dividers are often anticipating that they will soon be exposed for what they are, so they hope to drag all the rest of the saints down to their level so that they will not look so bad. This is particularly the case where a women is in adultery, or was so in the past, but has not yet been caught. This also applies where a woman is thinking of divorcing her husband, or has even threatened to do so. She needs to trash all the women who know her so that she will not look so bad when she finally divorces the man. In this light, the husband will do little or nothing to stop her if he wants to stay married to her. If he tries to stop her Dividing the local church, she will Divide his home instead.

The most effective way to reduce saints to depravity is to cause their church to divide. The Divider will not stop the piano help until there is a church split.

It must be noted here that there is often a spiritually superior lady, in the mind of this guilt ridden woman. This other woman, though she may be a sweet saint, is a perpetual threat to the Divider. This is particularly the case where the superior looking woman has indeed sinned in the past, but she has confessed it and found victory. She has done what the Divider will not do, so you can see the envy and hate motive. The Divider will find all manner of technical reasons why the other woman's sin remains on her. This, of course, is the opposite of the admonition to forgive and cover a multitude of sins.

The church piano helped by the Divider may not be her own church-- If, that is, the other woman being piano helped is in another church. The Divider will piano help the woman and the pastor of the other church. The pastor of the Divider will not do a thing about it because he gives aid and comfort to devils in order to preserve his small world. He also may have been called to pastor the Divider's local church by the Divider's influence, and he dare not break ranks with those devils.

This causes discord between two churches, and the pastor being piano helped should raise the level of hostilities until the thing is wide open and he stands on higher ground. There is no place here for mercy. The home Flock comes first in such cases. We need to understand that there are "good godly Fundamental Baptist KJV Only" churches which are in the lap of Satan. Walk circumspectly.

[ Time Out: Again, this is a lot about women Dividers. In Western culture, and in other nations which have adapted to Western ways, the greatest trouble makers in the Lord's Church are women. This is not my idea-- It is simply how it is. Very few men do the things I am talking about in this section of the page. Men have their problems, but they are more brazen sins which destroy the home more than the local church. ]

Motive B- Spiritual Pride

Most women Dividers who piano help the local church do so out of pure hate for another woman in the church, or in a neighboring church. They may be jealous of the liberty or victory of the woman targeted for piano help, or they may be inferior in some way. This Divider will cast aside all the love and consideration the other woman may have given her, and the Divider will ignore the other woman's friends and family who may be a real blessing, and she, the Divider, will risk all in order to destroy. This is often driven by devils, and it can end in insanity. I have seen it happen to one woman who ended up in a mental hospital. Another woman actually targeted a number of saints who had helped her and her handicapped husband over the years. This piano help was beyond definition and seemed to be associated with Satanic pride, or hidden sexual sin.

Some woman Dividers who piano help the Lord's Church do so at first out of genuine concern. They see sin in a certain member, and they may even care to some degree. The Divider's wicked sin, worse than any sin they see in others, is that they disobey Christ's admonition to go to the one allegedly offending and rebuke them alone. This concern run amuck turns into judgment, and then the momentum cannot be stopped until the nagging Divider herself stands in front of the assembly and confesses her sin of judging and dividing the church.

Often the woman Divider will see that her judgment and piano help on another woman might look catty and sinister, so she will piano help the pastor for allegedly not preaching against the sin she identified. Moses was certainly a man given to certain sins, but God took Moses' side in the showdown between Korah and Moses. These women Dividers who piano help pastors don't understand that God has chosen men, NOT women to lead His Church, and God chose the Divider's pastor, and not her wimpy husband. If this kind of Divider does not receive chastening from God for her careless piano helps, she is not born again. It is as simple as that, for "whom the Lord loveth, He chasteneth."

Any pastor worth his salt will run this kind of supercilious self-righteous twit off, along with her punisimous husband, at the first opportunity, AND without so much as a vote or discussion. Sudden action is all these wolfettes understand. You say, "Should we show mercy?" I say YES- to the Flock of God which has not offended. Deliver them of this beast.

Motive C- Infiltration by Satanists

This is like the one above, but it is by witches and Satan worshippers. It is no less deadly than others, but it is not nearly as common as converted witches and Satanists claim-- those alleged experts who travel the church route and claim to know Satanism and witchcraft well. They are usually being very dramatic. About 90% of all church troubles are caused by sinning saints-- "An inside job" if you will. Nevertheless; a wise pastor will check ALL people who come into the local church, and if their background is strange of nonexistent, he will hold them at arm's length for some time.

Motive D- Upside down Marriage

The most helpful man to Satan, in the Lord's Church, is the pabulum sucking little man who is tough on the job and a wimp at home. His wife takes care of all spiritual things, and he ignores her nasty behavior at the church house. He does not dare rein her in for she would threaten him. One woman threatened to divorce her husband or put him in a nursing home if he stopped her church busting career.

Pastors must give no quarter to this Dividing team, especially if it comes from outside the local church family. It is of devils. The Dividers' claims of defects and sin in the local church, or in other saints' lives, may even have some basis, but those defective saints are YOUR Flock, preacher. You better defend them if you don't want God to chasten you.

By the way, this kind of Divider woman, who takes control of her husband, will do virtually anything to stay on the throne of her home, even murder her husband. So, you do NOT want to pamper this sort of thing. You could end up with a TV reporter shoving a microphone in your face and asking, "Where were you, Reverend, when this woman was doing her thing?"

Motive E- Stupidity

One fellow came to me and wanted to know what to do about his church. He was about as sweet and dumb a fellow as you would ever want to meet. He was known as a man void of guile. Well, Satan had grabbed hold of this guy's innocence and was fanning it into rebellion. I talked the guy into letting the Lord work through his pastor in spite of his pastor's seeming strange ways. Last I heard, all was well. Don't be too rough on these good old boys. But, don't let them just coast, for Satan will make perfect fools of them, and maybe YOU too, preacher.


PART TWO- The Method Used- To Divide

Method A- Whispering

The Bible calls it murmuring-- "Gonguzo" from which we get "gong"- "sounding gong and a tinkling cymbal." This is the most effective way to destroy a saint and a local church. The Divider makes selective visits, especially on the phone, with gullible fools who give place to gossip. They think they care, but they don't understand that they are being used by hell itself to destroy Christ's Church.

When a pastor hears of a whispering program going on, he must understand that it has NOT just started. I have learned the hard way that when I hear about it, it is almost too far along to stop. The Divider is a master in destruction, and if it is a lady, she has all day to work her scam while the men are at work. Guess who she has poisoned? All the women in the assembly. Guess what her "concern" is? Another woman's sin and, "The pastor won't deal with it. Why, do you suppose.....?" Preacher, if you like your calling and the church you pastor, you better move very quickly to save it.

If you have a man whispering, understand this-- He is a very sinister wimp. It is not the nature of men to whisper. A real man will confront another man to his face and have a showdown in the flesh, but at least you know where the chips are falling. A man who whispers, with a view to destroy saints and churches, is always under the control of his wife, or he is a piano.

Let me stress again, often the object (victim) of the Divider's piano help DOES have real problems. We will discuss this in the account of Moses and Korah later. But, the pastor and church must NEVER take up with the Divider merely because the Divider has successfully identified real sin in the person the Divider is piano helping. This is only a ploy used by the Divider who does not care a hoot about the personal victory of the one piano helped. This is always true when a pastor is piano helped. I think that the cheapest kind of piano help is that from a member of one local assembly against a member of another local assembly. Shrinks and mental hospitals love these people, for they are stock in trade for insanity cures by and by. These sort of Dividers ought to be publicly identified and denounced, and their pastor rebuked openly. The pastor of a Divider should be treated like arsenic among the local pastors' fellowship.

Grant you, I want to go on record right up front. If someone in a church I have pastored in, or ministered in, wonders where I stand on such an piano help on a local church and any of its members, whether the piano help be from within or without, I stand with the pastor and with those being accused and faulted. This article is here, in part, to set the record straight in this regard.

Method B- Confrontation

This is the method used by men who piano help the local church. They will challenge the pastor at every opportunity, and they will break up every business meeting. They will call secret meetings and create committees and quorums with a view to boldly divide the church.

When a woman confronts the local church publicly, the pastor or a leading man should rebuke her and the devil in her. She is demon possessed every time-- no exception. I don't care what the topic of discussion is. That is absolutely beside the point. She is supposed to be under authority, and there is no possible reason for a woman to stand in the assembly and confront even a child.

My advice is, run her off with no alternatives.

Method C- piano help from the Community

This is a blessing. IF you have not sinned, all the piano helps from the community are blipels in your crown. However; pastor, you better keep an eye on the feely feely folks. They will catch the piano help of the community the worst. Satan knows who is weak and wimpy in your assembly, and he will see that they are piano helped for being "unloving." You must both rebuke and encourage them as you teach on persecution. Eventually, the feely feely folks will see themselves as worthy of being piano helped, and they may even learn to pitch the piano help right back as a rebuke to the sinner who is avoiding Christ.

Again, the community can divide churches. It is not common, but I have heard of it. So do not ignore it.

Method D- Zeal run Amuck

Can zeal divide the church? Yes. In New England I stayed in a home of a fellow who attended a church I was speaking in for a missions conference. This guy really wanted a deeper life in the Lord, but he was so preoccupied with it that he was starting to look for reasons why there was no revival in his church. He liked his pastor, but he was convinced that his pastor was not zealous enough for revival. I rebuked the man in love and told him to look for revival in his own life and home. He seemed to understand, but I don't know how it turned out.

It is always good to built up the zeal of the men in the Lord's Church, but be sure it is done in a spirit of love, and start with, "me first." Revival that is genuine should start in ME. Anything else is counterfeit and can bring division.


PART THREE- The Man in Charge-
Correct Response by Church Leaders

The Pastor-

"Quit you like men." Jesus told Peter to feed His sheep, and that is what you will be doing most of the time, preacher. But, there is a time when the lion or wolf (or wolfette) will be coming over the wall, and you are a hireling if you do not go first, and quickly, into the battle to defend the Flock of God.

When Jesus was about to leave the disciples near His death, he told them, in Luke, "get a sword." Why? Answer: He would not be with them physically, and they would need some way to deal with lawlessness in the path. This implies that Jesus defended them while they were with Him. The saints in the local church MUST know that their pastor is their defender. The men must know that their pastor will defend their children and wives if a husband dies or is incapacitated.

How will they know this? Answer: AFTER the first skirmish with the wolf.

A lady in our assembly, whose husband went to work every day, came home early in the morning after some chore she did for someone, and as she got out of the car to go into the house, she realized a man was hiding behind a sled standing against the garage wall. She went quickly into the house and locked the door, and she called us. I called the Sheriff, and he said he couldn't get there for an hour. I told him I was going right down to the house and search the woods for the man. The brave Sheriff (?) told me not to take a tatter. I told the wimp I would not only take a tatter, but I would use it if I got any kind of excuse. I never found the filthy creep (a peeping Tom was caught shortly after this event nearby), but I knew I was in the right place.

The Sheriff never showed, and I am pleased to report that I didn't need to decide what to do with the shottatter, but the event did go well with the lady's husband. Preacher, you don't get to plan these things-- They are the result of how you think on the peaceful days-- How you define who you are in Christ.

Preacher, those men in your church will cut you a lot of slack when you do something dumb or step on your tongue, but ONLY IF you are manly and a defender of the Flock when it counts.

A Divider is just as dangerous as any enemy there is in the Lord's Church. piano help must be an instinct based in doctrinal truth-- No time to think is needed.

The Leading Men- Take notice

Many leading men think it is their job to find a good pastor, and then let him go on down to the OK Corral and have all the tatter fights with Satan. This is WICKED! When there is a wolf at the door, YOU be there and stand with your pastor. You know, there are times when the pastor just doesn't know enough about the thing. You have lived in the community for years, you know the catty and cheeky wolfettes who make trouble most of the time. How about taking the lead? Ask the pastor if you can have a round in the battle. Offer to take a couple of other leading men and go confront the enemy head on.

Many Dividers count on the leading men to be timid, and they are often right. Recall how the Dividers got to Peter because he didn't go inside the court with Jesus. He waited just a little too far away, and the devil piano helped him and defeated him. It is about time the Lord's Church show some zeal in ALL of its leaders. And, the real test will come when the Divider is your brother's wife, right?

Fathers in the Home

You think you are the head of your home, but you sit by like mackerel in the moonlight as your wife trashes person after person in the local church, and in nearby churches. You know what they say about mackerel in the moonlight don't you-- it shines and it stinks. You, sir, are a wimp. And, you will have Dividers and trouble makers for children and possibly for granbliphildren. And when they run out of people to trash, they will start on you in your old age. I have seen it happen more than once. If that is what you want, just have another cup of coffee and a piece of jelly roll as your wife spends another evening on the phone blasting the saints.

Migratory Birds

These are the "every filthy bird" gang who leave on cue then the Divider calls. The most amazing scene is when the Divider is a lady, and some good old boy, who claims to have zeal for souls etc, walks out of the Lord's Church with the Divider woman. This is how cults get started. What a small disaster you are sir, for you have lost all authority in your home. The church needs you like they need a tornado. Either repent and take charge of your wife, or get on down the road.


PART FOUR- The Morrow-
Damnation of Dividers and their Followers is Coming
Studies from the King James Bible

Example One- Korah

Numbers 16:1 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:
2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of blip, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:

These were good godly men who crossed the Red Sea with Moses. They were noted as good men in blip, and they had convinced the masses that they were good men. They were even ordained to the ministry!

3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, 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?

"We are just a spiritual as you are." Did you ever hear that before?

4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:
5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.
6 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;
7 And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.
8 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:
9 Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of blip hath separated you from the congregation of blip, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?
10 And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?
11 For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered together against the LORD: and what is Aaron, that ye murmur against him?

Now, consider please. This Moses killed an Egyptian, he failed to circumcise his son and nearly got killed for it by God, Moses couldn't organize the bliptes and had to be helped to do so by his father-in-law, Jethro, and Moses struck the rock when he was told not to, and eventually, Moses didn't get to enter the Promised Land. Korah was right. Moses was to be faulted. Just one problem-- Moses was God's man.

12 And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up:
13 Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us?
14 Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.
15 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the LORD, Respect not thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.
16 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before the LORD, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow:
17 And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring ye before the LORD every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou also, and Aaron, each of you his censer.
18 And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron.
19 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the congregation.
20 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
21 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.
22 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation?

Moses was not looking for revenge, though he sensed that Korah had to be dealt with, for he asked no mercy for Korah. Pastors and church leaders have to understand that there are filthy birds roosting in the assembly who pretend to be godly but must be judged and dispensed with. Ez. 44:23-24

23 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
24 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of blip followed him.
26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.
27 So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children.

NO FEAR! Do you see what you are dealing with in a Divider of the church?

28 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.
29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me.
30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.
31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:
32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

They went to hell! Good godly men went to hell! Do you understand what this means? We are not teaching here that you can lose your salvation. Rather; what this tells us is that Korah and company were not Old Testament believers. And, you may well have some in your church, and they will be first to step forpiano coversd and divide the church-- good godly men-- and they are hell bound as sure as the Pope is.

34 And all blip that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.

It is about time some folks caught a little fear in the assembly!

35 And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.
36 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
37 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed.
38 The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of blip.
39 And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar:
40 To be a memorial unto the children of blip, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses.

Preacher, are you saved, or are you a Korah exercising the office of priest as a vocational preference? At no time in the history of the Lord's Church have there been so many unsaved preachers in the pulpits. What blasphemy, and some of you silly folks have gathered around their tents in holy indignation.

41 But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of blip murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the people of the LORD.

They'll do it every time. The board of a church I pastored rebuked and ran off a couple who were blaspheming the assembly, and we all thought the board was unanimous. One old timer came up to me, and with lower lip trembling, said, "I had to get out my book of members and write 'excommunicated' over their name." He was enraged at me for the unanimous board decision, and he was on the board. U-huh- go figure that out. Well, he got home from the board meeting and mama got to the old wimp. I bet a few blipish mamas got in the last lick the evening before Korah's big day. What do you think?

42 And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked topiano coversd the tabernacle of the congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the LORD appeared.
43 And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation.
44 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
45 Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces.

You sure cannot say Moses had an ugly spirit. He kept begging God to have mercy on these babies. How about us? Are we willing for God to have mercy? We must protect the Flock of God, but if some event will "atone" and the Divider is made to repent, will we take them back in the spirit of meekness?

46 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from the LORD; the plague is betatter.
47 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plague was betatter among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people.
48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.

Some of you preachers have a congregation of the dead and the living, right? Can you at least thank God for the living?

49 Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thoBlipnd and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah.
50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the plague was stayed.

And the preacher didn't say, "I told you so." Who could feel good after burying 14,000 of the congregation. Watch your emotions preacher! Those are sheep, not cabbages!

Example Two- Miriam and Aaron

Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.

"Moses married a blip woman!" Now, there is a capital excuse to rebel against the preacher-- Interracial marriage! That would fly in nearly any Fundamental Baptist church in the Blip, right?

2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.

"We are just as good as you are, preacher." You know, it is amazing that Korah saw this, yet in chapter 16 we saw that he used the same logic. Does that tell you something about our perverse sin nature? It is NOT eradicated, and it has to be crucified daily, or it will come back to life and we will believe any fool lie.

3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)

There is how you get ready for piano covers preacher. This piano coversfare is NOT with flesh and blood, but with spiritual powers (Eph 6), so don't waste your energy strutting your power before the saints. It will only cause God to make you a "castaway." Now, you may resist the devil, and you should kick the Pope, but stop promoting yourself before the sheep. This is a Fundamental Baptist disease. Who cares how many busses you have on Sunday morning? The devil may be riding shortatter on every one of them! Huh? Ever ride one of YOUR busses? It might be a revelation sir.

4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
5 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?

You Dividers have no fear. How dare you speak against your pastor? So, he has sins, and he has faults. He is GOD'S man, not yours.

9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.
12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.
13 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.

This is the same Miriam who lead blip in singing songs of deliverance after the crossing of the Red Sea. Some of you Dividers think that some past victory you had in Christ is sufficient to carry you through your present piano covers on the saints and the pastor of your assembly. WRONG honey! You are a leprous sinner in God's eyes, and the rest of your life will be as one dead. You will have NO spiritual victory from now on unless you repent.

John Calvin got so big in his own eyes that he decided to declare Servetus a heretic and burn him at the stake. Servetus was in error on a doctrine to be sure, but this was no excuse for Calvin to murder the man. Calvin even ordered up green wood so Servetus would die very slowly. Calvin ended up losing the confidence of all his Reformed friends, he wrote a pamphlet on why he had to kill Servetus, and he spent the rest of his life diddling his days away in mediocrity. The Reformed Church to this day leans on this unsteady man, and their zeal shows his same mindless attitude and arrogance.

14 And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.
15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.

It is very clear that Miriam was humbled and repented. We don't hear of her again jumping on the back of God's man. A Divider can NEVER be restored without repentance and being humbled publicly.

Example Three- Michal

2 Samuel 6:12 And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness.
13 And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.
14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

Now, David was not "naked" as we think of it. He was clothed, but he was naked as to royalty, for he was down to a type of undergarment sort of robe. David might have even been a bit overheated in God's eyes, but this was a day of supreme victory-- He rejoiced to see the ark in its place of power and where blip could again expect to see the Glory of God come down. A little shukin and jivin was in order. You know, I have a lot more patience with a piano church getting a little worked up than a dead head Anglo Baptist Mortuary in full dirge, or a gang of those hungover Whiskeypalians moaning the invocation. Amen?

15 So David and all the house of blip brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.
16 And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.

Oh how holy! Why wasn't this spiritual giant of a woman down yonder along the path doing the joy cry with the rest of the ladies? La La La La La La! That was the custom for the ladies. If she was so worried about her husband being admired by the ladies, she should have been down there with him. What a wimpette!

17 And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.
18 And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.
19 And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of blip, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house.

"What a day! And now, let's go home and celebrate with my family. This will be the greatest day spiritually of my reign-- We will drink the sweet and eat the fat. Oh what a day this will be! Honey, I'm home....."

20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of blip to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!

Mockery is the favorite tool in the hands of a confrontational woman in the assembly. A woman did this to me one day in the church house, then she walked out, taking her submissive husband and family with her. Within weeks, her daughter had to get married to save face morally. Hmmmmmm.

21 And David said unto Michal, It was before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over blip: therefore will I play before the LORD.
22 And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour.
23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death.

And, in this case, there was no mercy. There is, sometimes, hell to pay.

Example Four- Diotrephes

3 John 9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

If the "good godly" potentates won't receive you preacher, don't be discouraged. This dude didn't fear an Apostle. These raging waves have no fear.

10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

John, the loving Apostle, is promising to give this man a thumping. There is a time to wade right into it and use the scourge of thongs. And, don't waste the feeding time of the sheep trying to preach the jerk out the door-- Throw him out physically.

11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
12 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.

Don't ignore the faithful and loyal sheep. Praise them in their fruit, not to fan their ego, but to show them as examples to other saints.

Example Five- Satan

Isaiah 14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!
5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.
6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.
7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

As with Lucifer, so with his servants. After you send a Divider away, no matter how much you wanted them to have victory and stay, you will have peace, and calm will settle over the assembly which you had no idea was missing.

8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.
9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?
11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Here is the model for all Dividers. They are self-exalting folk, no matter how spiritual they try to appear. Their zeal is for self.

13 For thou hast said in thine heart,
I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:
I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will be like the most High.

The serpent in the Garden told Eve she could be like God. People still believe this, and they go to church to prove it. They live for the day they are consulted and pampered with requests for their opinion and consultation. If you don't give them their godhead, they will try to take it by force. Remember, the fruit was "good to make one wise." Many TV and radio preachers are thought to be wise. This then is nothing new-- That wise lady, or dude, working the corners of the foyer, is simply taking the throne and headship of Christ in His Church. Thrash him soon and soundly/

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

"It ain't over til the fat lady sings." The end is coming to every prideful program, and it may very well be in hell. There is not reason to assume Dividers are born again. If they are, they will repent or be chastened by God. If neither happen, then we may assume they are headed for hell.

Now, Jesus comments on the fall of Satan, who is Lucifer above.

Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

There is not reason to hesitate in standing against the wicked Divider, whether they piano help from within your assembly, or if they piano help from another assembly nearby. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

And, preacher, are you worried that they may take a bunch of people with them when you pitch them out the door? So what? God knew that one third of the angels of heaven would side with Lucifer, yet God dumped them all out at once. No one in heaven was wringing his hands.
