Continuing on with their no-information campaign, the Overcomer forgoes a live Service or even informing the listeners and financial supporters of what’s going on at the ministry of confusion.
What we got today was an old service from 20 years ago that has been being played on the broadcast for days now. Another repeat. It’s from a time after Brother Stair lost his mass of people when his sexual sin foamed out for all to see. Yet he was still to lose this half that still remained awaiting his repentance.
You can tell how unrepentant he was at this time, still pointing the finger at us over ambiguous sins (which he liked to call iniquity) while he was steeped in sexual sin – though we didn’t know it. We thought all that wickedness was behind him, though his haughtiness did make it hard for us to accept and believe in his repentance.
It was his continuing haughtiness that he persisted in that confused us and made us think he surely isn’t still walking in those sexual sins – but he was. He was just hiding it as he did before, and this haughtiness and railing on God’s people was one way he used to hide it. Picking on all their faults – which was something he once said that Satan does.
We were always the ones who were in rebellion. What we didn’t know then was his rebellion against God in seeking his own will and his sexual pleasures. He was always upset at us and blaming us for opposing or standing in the way of his sexual cravings. The LORD… thwarts the craving of the wicked (Proverbs 10:3 NIV84; Jer 6:15).
You can tell he is more coherent here than in his later days when he waxed worse and worse, partially due to reaping his sowing of sexual diseases and his use of penis enhancement pills. Brother Stair still had his air of power and control at this time. His narcissism was certainly shining bright in this one. It is very typical of the Brother Stair that preached over that period of the later 1990s into the later 2000s.
The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so:
and what will ye do in the end thereof?
from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly,
saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
and what will ye do IN THE END THEREOF?
(Jeremiah 5:31, 6:13-14)
This was before his exposure as the Man of Sin and thus we witness in full bloom his epic boastful narcissism of exalting himself and degrading all of God’s people. His famous “You people!” where he makes it clear that you’re not his people.
At least it was from when someone knew how to run the soundboard and we had good levels. Not that Brother Stair is happy with that as indicated with his statement of ignorance, in the beginning, thinking the sound is just for him. Brother Stair lived a life thinking everything was for him. That’s what narcissists do.
This gives us a good opportunity to show you how much in error Brother Stair was back at this time when most believed him to be alright and on target. Brother Stair has been doing wickedness all his ‘spiritual’ life. The manifestation of that wickedness was not so apparent until his later days.
The sins of some men are quite evident, going before them to judgment;
for others, their sins follow after.
Likewise also, deeds that are good are quite evident,
and those which are otherwise cannot be concealed.
(1 Timothy 5:24-25 NASB95)
“You know something? If a man is a liar, and he speaks the truth, what’s he done? He’s turned the truth into a lie. You understand that? You understand that!”
Here we have the reason that we should all run from the teaching and preaching of Brother Stair ( 2Tim 3:5). Don’t think that because he spoke some truth that makes him valid. Brother Stair is a liar through and through and when he speaks he speaks of his father the Devil (John 8:44-45). So everything he speaks is a lie. Even the truth is turned into a lie. You understand that?
“I’ll tell you who God loves, He loves Himself. He’s a lover of Himself and He ain’t got no room to love you. Unless you get in Him, you ain’t gonna be at all. That’s why He’s gonna have no problem getting rid of YOU.”
This is Brother Stair’s classic justification of his ways by aligning himself with God. Even though he’s lying on God here. We see here that Brother Stair opposes us and sets himself up as God (2Thes 2:4), as the one who loves himself and the one who demands that you get in him and align with his will. We all know now that Brother Stair (god) had no problem getting rid of those who opposed his throne of power (3John 9-11).
It reminds us of the perverse statement that both Brother Stair and Rick Bell propagated. It’s not enough for you to believe the prophet, you must have a love for the prophet. You need to get back to the love for the Prophet. While scripture tells us Cursed is the man who puts his trust in mortal man and turns his heart away from God (Jer 17:5 TLB)
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS [a prophet],
but denying the power thereof [the power of holiness]
FROM SUCH TURN AWAY!
[an actual “Command of God”]
(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
The Sacrifice of Fools
You need to realize that the people that you hear in these services shouting and agreeing with Brother Stair, denounce Brother Stair today. They/we were giving the sacrifice of fools (Ecc 5:1) in their/our ignorance. Today they/we know the truth about Brother Stair and have come out of her (Rev 18:4; Jer 51:45; 2Tim 3:5).
So don’t think that there is a difference between those you hear praising and those that Brother Stair denounces as lost leavers. What you are hearing is those that learned the truth and fled from the wicked one (Ps 97:10; Ps 101:3-8; 1Thes 5:22; 2Tim 2:22, 3:5; Pr 8:13).
Their present testimony is the only valid testimony. Unlike what Brother Stair teaches, ignorance does not make a valid testimony. Do you wonder why he didn’t allow his people to testify over the last 10 years? Because they would not have said what he wanted them to say about him.
Their testimony was invalidated by Brother Stair. Meanwhile, scripture tells us that we overcome by our testimony (Rev 12:11). So Brother Stair kept them from overcoming. What a thing for The Overcomer to do. Now we see the truth of what his ministry’s name The Overcomer really means – to overcome them (Rev 13:7). The overcoming was not by us but over us – we were the target to be overcome. The Overcomer of the saints.
Standing In The Gap
Such things must needs be told as we are witnessing callers who think that Brother Stair was a fine man and are saying ignorant things like, He was a very good man, a very good prophet. He had his faults but so do we all. This is dangerous because this belief will damn you. This is what happens when you believe a lie – you are given over to a strong delusion – which is to damn you (2Thes 2:10-12; Prov 9:18).
But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live?
All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. (Ezekiel 18:24)
His faults were manifest into false teachings or false doctrines – we don’t all do that. We must now take heed because Brother Stair didn’t take heed unto himself or his doctrine and thus he didn’t save those that hear him. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee (1 Timothy 4:16). This is why you must be careful what and from whom you hear. Error can damn you (2Thes 2:10-12).
Wake up, people! God is not mocked, no matter how much Brother Stair mocked Him and His people. Whatsoever a man soweth THAT shall he also reap (Galatians 6:7-9). Whatsoever corruption of the word of God Brother Stair sowed in you, that corruption will you also reap unto destruction. A bad tree CANNOT bear good fruit (Matt 7:18-20). We all know Brother Stair was a polluted stream (James 3:11-12; Pr 25:26). Don’t be deceived by his claims as God’s anointed, so was Lucifer, and so is the claim of the last day deceivers (Matt 24:5).
God doesn’t use unholy vessels for His holy work (2Tim 2:20-21). Stick to the Word of God as Brother Burgess would say. You know Brother Burgess – the one Bro Stair vilifies as he instructs his wife to rebel against him, and praises her for doing so.
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal,
The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
(2 Timothy 2:19-22)
Brother Stair fashioned himself a vessel of dishonor by his lack of purging himself. He therefore taught that sin didn’t matter to God and that all the men God used were wicked rascals – Noah, David, Samson… His biblical teaching was perverted by his twisting them to fit his perverted sexual lifestyle that he refused to repent of (2Peter 3:16). He refused to prepare himself unto any good work and followed after his youthful lusts out of a wicked heart of unbelief, thinking that God wouldn’t care (Hebrews 3:12).
As RC Sproul said in his book The Holiness of God – “How we understand the person and character of God the Father affects every aspect of our lives.” Thus we find that Brother Stair’s understanding of God was perverted and this perverted every aspect of his life. Who was this ‘god’ that was speaking to Bro Stair that would tell him evil things about God’s people? This ‘god’ always pointed out our sins but never the sins of Brother Stair. Who was that god? (2Cor 4:4; Zech 3:1; Rev 12:10, 2:9) That god that ain’t got no room to love you and is gonna have no problem getting rid of YOU? (John 3:16)
This is not the man of God that any Christian should follow. For he can only lead the blind into the same ditch that he is blindly walking in (Matt 15:14; Prov 23:27). Brothers and Sisters, test the spirits!
Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of understanding. (Prov 9:6 NIV84).
“Why would you even want to listen to a tape where the spirit of denial’s on it?” “Henry Gruver… David Terrell… JR Church, they’ve got a spirit of denial on ’em. They betray the truth. You give heed to that spirit? Giving heed to a seducing spirit. Certain men, crept in unaware, ungodly men, ordained to be condemned, not listened to.”
The equation is that those who pull back from Brother Stair [i.e. who don’t bow down to him] have a spirit of denial. Forget about how Brother Stair denies and divides the body of Christ daily or how he betrays the truth by walking in lies and contrary to God’s word.
Even though Bro Stair plays Henry Gruver’s messages he says you shouldn’t listen to him. That boys and girls is what is called hypocrisy. Which is betraying the truth. Which would be an example of a blind prophet (Isaiah 56:10-12; Matt 15:14).
What we are witnessing is a seducing spirit of a certain man that has crept into the church unaware. An ungodly man that is ordained, not ‘by God’ but to be condemned by the word of God. Who is not to be listened to. Be careful little ears what you hear. Brother Stair is seducing you that he is better than these men – or any man. While he is the ungodly man identified by his ungodly deeds which he has ungodly committed and his hard speeches against God‘s people (Jude 1:15).
Let us not forget the next verse in Jude that further identifies this certain man. These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage (Jude 1:16). Since Henry Gruver, David Terrell, and J.R. Chruch didn’t give Brother Stair any advantage, he has no admiration for them. Rather he condemns them as deniers. They are not deniers of God but they are deniers of Brother Stair – who fancies himself to be God. So this denial is the same thing to him. See the exaltation here?
“The prophet being warned of God condemns these soothsayers. Condemns them! What are you doing messing with ’em?”
Not sure what Prophet Stair thinks he was warned of God on. It certainly wasn’t that his wicked sins would condemn him. Makes you wonder what god Brother Stair is talking about here – or anywhere.
Soothsayers – this would be the definition for the shysters that Brother Stair was schooled under. The ones that taught him his tricks of religious deception. Like the one you are witnessing here – condemn others and those that listen to others because you have to make you the only one right and therefore the only one to listen to. The only tent revival to go to should be yours. It has more pazazz than all others.
Finally, what are you doing messing with Brother Stair the soothsayer? You were warned of God against such ungodly men that have crept in unaware. Unaware from whence they came aside from the fanciful stories they tell you of their glorious past (Jude 1:15-16). These men have climbed in another way (John 10:1-5). Bro Stair tells us this in how he was schooled by shysters rather than by a godly institution.
He is a mocker in the last time, who walks after his own ungodly lusts. He has separated himself for sensual reasons, having not the Spirit (Jude 1:18-19). Yes, you will find Brother Stair in the scriptures.
“What? Do you think you’re the only one? What sayest thou?”
Brother Stair continues with his self-exaltation over these men by now putting forth that he is the only one and that his followers should say the same – and listen to no other. This would later manifest into him boldly stating that he was not only the only one but that he was God in the flesh, that he was greater than Jesus, he was the promised Comforter, and many more.
We should not be surprised at this. It was there all along. This was why we witnessed his rage at his people’s refusal to worship him. His fruit shows his root (Matt 7: 15-20).
What sayest thou? Brother Stair is believing and teaching that his followers are indeed, his followers, and not followers of Christ. You are to say that he (Bro Stair) is the Only One! Any other answer is unacceptable and will result in more battering and belittling. Therefore, the beatings will continue.
Sadly, even after his passing we still witness these beatings not just in his broadcasts but in the Prayer Time from his Community. They are crying out and cutting themselves like the prophets of Baal (1Kings 18:28-29) following in the false teachings that Brother Stair left them with; “Lord save me lest I perish”. We witness a grievous wailing and gnashing of teeth (Mt 13:42). Showing that Brother Stair had taken away their salvation (2Cor 4:3-4). As was addressed in The Man of Lawlessness.
How long halt ye between two opinions?
if the Lord be God, follow him:
but if Brother Stair, then follow him
And [the angels] shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. (Matthew 13:42-43) These verses seem to be fulfilled here. The offensive iniquitous one has been gathered out and they are left in wailing and gnashing of teeth. We don’t see them shining forth as the sun do we? What think ye? What do your ears hear?
Sabbath Worship Services at the Overcomer Ministry with Brother Stair, the Prophet of the Overcomer Ministry preaching at the Overcomer Tabernacle in Canadys SC.
25 minutes of silence removed because he paused just as much in the past as he did in his later days – all for a dramatic, fearful effect.
