This week Pastor James Rice has calmed down (finally) from his incessant ranting throughout the whole service about those that are not paying him any mind and not coming to the Services.
Here is a shorter version that will strip out almost half the time by just providing James Rice’s words without the readings, prayers, songs, extended shouting, and awkward pauses.
Fortunately, this was nothing like the cursing and scoffing that last week’s Service provided us.
Pastor Rice magnifies Brother Stair’s words in Service amplifying that this house is giving strength to them. Indeed, the strength of the evil spirits comes from the evil house. Evil, like the dissension and division that James Rice usually gives out?
Pastor Rice chides the sound man when he perceives a bit of ringing in the sound system. This is the same spirit that Brother Stair attacked the brothers running the sound with.
For you bear with anyone if he enslaves you, if he devours you, if he takes advantage of you, if he exalts himself, if he hits you in the face.
… dangers among false brethern.
(2 Corinthians 11:20, 26 NASB77)
“… These things precede the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ“
Throwing out a short list of events but ignoring the things that their own prophet said must come to pass first. They are willingly gouging out their eyes in regard to Brother Stair’s teachings on the coming of Jesus (2Pt 3:5).
“People killing the saints of God and think they do God a service. Separating from the company of the people of God.”
As we are witnessing this, even in this service – killing those who don’t come to their company. This separation is the first step in this ministry – to separate you from your family, friends, church, doctor, house, cars, and money. They think in doing this that they are doing God a service.
“[Brother Stair] said, ‘You all don’t have to be here.’ Wonder why he said that? Anybody spiritual enough to know why he would begin the service like that? Somebody talk to me today.”
Brother Stair liked to play those kinds of mind games often. This is why he said things like that. He was always speaking out of both sides of his mouth. Just like Pastor Rice is doing here in bringing this up. He’s saying that you don’t have to be here and yet he’s harping on the point that people are not there who he’s pointing out should be there. The confused doublespeak has even him confused.
This, dear pastor, is a psychological trick that is known as gaslighting. Look it up, it would do you some good to understand the mind tricks that the religious shysters, which he was schooled under, taught him.
“I don’t know if I’m making myself clear though”
Clear to us but not to those there.
“I remember when I first heard [Brother Stair] you know, I thought He’d [Jesus] be here in three or four years. Sure!”
Pastor Rice is here stating that Brother Stair clearly preached that Jesus was coming so soon that he didn’t have time to plant trees – before/by 2000. This shows how blind the prophet was in knowing anything about God’s timing.
“And after 2000 of course, many said ‘well, I’m tired of waiting.”
Rice is inferring that people left after 2000 because they gave up on Jesus’ coming – as Brother Stair said He would. At least they recognized that Brother Stair was not worth following for prophecies – since this proved him a false prophet. Rice’s inference is that those that left in 2001, because that’s the first time anyone left after the year 2000, left because they were tired of waiting for Jesus.
This is an outright lie used to justify his remaining in the service of a sexual pervert. 2001 is when the man of sin was revealed by his sexual perversion and the whole community finally knew what he had been doing all his life. His space of repentance expired in 2002 and he went to jail as God was showing the world that he refused to repent. This pattern can be seen repeated in 2017.
Why this was such a shock to all and especially to the 50% that left is because Brother Stair was outed as a bold-faced liar and he betrayed us with his lies. They left, as eventually would most of the remaining 50%, not because they lost hope in Jesus’ return but because they believed in Jesus’ return and they knew that Jesus was coming for a holy bride. This was not possible to attain on the Farm, where sexual perversion was given free rein. Those remaining on the Farm were not going to be ready when He appears.
They first knew that Brother Stair lied to them about being a holy man without sin. He betrayed their confidence and trust in him this way. They also knew that God wasn’t speaking to this man steeped in wickedness. They knew that the words the Brother Stair said were from God were not from God but from Stair’s own flesh and they served only to further his fleshly desires. It was not unbelief in Jesus or His coming that they left, it was unbelief in Brother Stair as a man of God. Thus we received the knowledge of the truth (John 14:17; 1Jn 2:27). To stay would have been to deny God and His words of admonition to flee such men (1Cor 6:18; Eph 5:11).
That’s what we were tired of – Brother Stair’s lies and his refusal to repent, at every turn. Pastor Rice is doing the same by propagating his lies and in this statement where he accuses the body of Christ with his lies. Open your eyes and put God in the things that have happened there in the last 25 years.
“The Bible said if a man dig a pit, he’ll fall in it.”
You’re doing a good job of it. Watch your step! And don’t forget that those following you are going into it too.
“Am I right to talk about these things or should we speak something else?“
You are not right to speak this nonsense (Jude 1:19). Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. (1Tim 4:2, 6-7).
These are the ones who cause divisions, worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit
(Jude 1:19 NASB)
But these people disparage all the things that they do not understand; and all the things that they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain… These are the ones who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, like shepherds caring only for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted (Jude 1:10-12 NASB).
Yes, you should speak something else – like the gospel perhaps. Holiness, preparing God’s people to meet their God, and not worshiping a false prophet and his words. This rebellion and dissension that you are speaking about are dividing the body of Christ (1Sam 15:23).
The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie… because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD (Jer 28:15-!6).
“The captain of our salvation is Jesus.”
The problem with this is that the admiral of your salvation is the prophet, Brother Stair. The one that preached another Jesus, another Comforter, and another Gospel (2Cor 11:4). This admiral of your salvation also made himself to be greater than Jesus – so that’s the major problem here (Ex 20:3-5; Acts 8:9). Jesus isn’t playing second fiddle to Brother Stair – so He’s not a part of this salvation. You can’t get there from here.
But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4 NIV)
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 NASB95)
“And when He hath tried us, we shall come forth as gold.”
That’s not a given. Rice says this as if just being tried brings you out as gold. It does not. You have to pass the test and do the right thing to come forth as gold. You have to have pure gold to start with, otherwise, you are just dross that is cast away (Ps 119:119). This is the reason for the trial – to find out what you’re made of. Sadly, the pastor and the Overcomers don’t realize the pollution that they have mixed themselves with. You can’t get there from here.
He also says I’m not seeking a wife. Is this because the rumors of his marriage to Rose were the Overcomers spreading lies [as we figured and spoke of in Pentecost 2022]? Or does he now have one in Rose? He’s also not seeking the words of the prophet to come to pass on the restoration of his wife either. Nor is he expecting any of the words of his prophet Brother Stair to manifest – that would be a trap – as he says.
A word about Pastor James Rice
We do not wish to shame or cast shade on Pastor Rice. We love him and believed him to be one of the only true pastors of the Overcomer Ministry – at one time. But we are told to reprove the unfruitful works of darkness (Eph 5:11). This makes the current events even sadder because, like Brother Stair should have, Rice could turn this Community to Jesus and the truth of God’s word and have a scripturally functioning body of Christ. But instead…
In December 2004 Brother Stair was caught, though he didn’t know it for 10 days, watching pornography in the Radio Room. This was not something new, as the brothers would testify in the following meeting by saying that he’s been doing this for the past 3 years (that they were working in the Radio Room). This was not an accidental slip of the mouse as he would try to excuse it to be. Nor was it the strong meat that he would switch his defense to. This porn was broadcast on his worldwide broadcast – for 45 seconds. It would have been much longer if someone hadn’t run to the Radio Room to see what was going on. And there sat the prophet at his computer screen – as if he did no wrong (Pr 30:20).
Pastor Rice’s fateful turning was cemented in December 2004, if not before. Certainly in that month, when Pastor Rice came to the Farm just after this went he was quickly taken aside by Brother Stair to prep him for what people were going to say happened. Then Rice decided to ignore the body of Christ and trust only in the prophet and his lies – without verification.
The worst part of that is that he knew there were several brothers that wanted words with him because they knew the narrative that Brother Stair was putting out was a lie. But Rice refused to hear them – he said so in the next service he preached – he chose to be stubbornly, willingly and willfully ignorant (2Pt 3:5; 1Sam 15:23 KJV/NKJV). Just as Brother Terry did when he tried to stop brothers from circulating the truth on the same incident. He was idolizing the prophet – no matter what evil he walked in (Ex 20:3-5; 1Sam 15:23; Jonah 2:8).
So the pastor betrayed us and we lost all hope that we should be saved by some chief man that could possibly bring Brother Stair to accountability and repentance. He became the lackey [flunkie] of the prophet and would do his will in opposition to the body of Christ. Thus the truth must be told to spare the body of Christ from the continuing deception that James Rice is fomenting. Which is where we are today. Now he has even betrayed his prophet and turned his congregation to ignoring Stair’s prophecies manifesting. They were merely to be taken spiritually.
Pentecost Service 2022 was finally announced to be the next day – Sunday, June 5th at 10 AM.
