Sabbath Service – Oct 15, 2022 – Bro Stair [Old Service], Pr Rice
Last Updated on Tue October 18, 2022 @ 10:45 pm
All Things Continue As They Were
Today’s service from October 2015 was either cherry-picked for today because Brother Stair hits on all the hot spots that Pastor James Rice is so adamant about beating to death. Or it’s just another indicator of how all things Overcomer continue as they were since the beginning of this ministry. It’s so true when it comes to this ministry that all things will continue as they always have. Even James Rice said later (contradictory to Brother Stair’s statement) that at the Overcomer there are many things that continue as they were. We could list many of these too.
The most amazing thing in today’s service is the spirit that we have been witnessing since Pastor Rice started his rule, particularly displayed lately in the Feast of Tabernacles Services. This spirit that is coming out of James Rice is the same in its intent and phraseology as it used when it used Brother Stair. Continuing as they were.
Even in how Pastor Rice exalts himself and expects praise and submission to his person. Not only saying the same things (in the exact same way) but demanding the same adulations as Brother Stair did. While this may sound justifiable as it should be this way. Pastor Rice’s messages were not this way in the past. Something (some spirit) has taken over and changed him to be under the same spirits that controlled Brother Stair – with the same goals. These are religious spirits. That doesn’t stop them from being demonic spirits (Jn 10:10; 1Jn 4:1).
Notice how in this service Brother Stair is telling them to Get the Hell Out. Those not hearing are in danger of Hell fire. This is the same thing Pastor Rice has been steaming out for the last couple of weeks. This is not a coincidence, this is the inherited mantel of Brother Stair that comes with his gaggle of demons that controlled him and spewed hatred upon God’s people for decades. The calling them fools later is actually what Jesus said puts you in danger of Hell fire (Mt 5:22).
These are the demonic spirits that led Brother Stair into his sexual perversions and to his having his brother’s wife – Rose (Mark 6:18; Lev 20:21). How much clearer can this be in the actual physical manifestation of this very thing in James Rice – having his brother (Dennis’s) wife Rose (Mark 6:18; Lev 20:21)? And then he wonders why he’s having an issue with Brother Dennis and those ‘others’ that see through this.
Since the Begining
Herein we witness the evidence of the transference of spirits (demons) to Pastor James Rice in his increased use of the same words and attitudes, and the same sexual partners. This comes from a man that denies Brother Stair’s words will come to pass, thus claiming Brother Stair is a false prophet, yet he wants to step in his shoes and take his place. This rulership is backed by his Jezebel (Rose) whom he has taken unto himself (having his brother’s wife) who wants the kingdom and sexually services the current king. As she did Brother Stair.
You don’t see the evidence of all that? What and how Brother Stair’s sexual desires caused him to do and where it led – Rose. Quickly manifested in James Rice after Brother Stair’s death. The railing on God’s people to blindly follow him and all who resist being excommunicated from fellowship. The cursing and shouting. The magnification of self (Brother Stair/James Rice). The shaming of those who don’t do what they want (1Thes 2:10). Unless you’re under a strong delusion this is clear to you (2Thes 2:11).
A people without understanding will come to ruin
(Hosea 4:14 NIV)
Never allowing God to judge them through the Body as He set the church up to do (1Cor 6:3-8). This is why Brother Stair and now James Rice lord it over them (1Pt 5:3) so that the church cannot exercise judgment upon those that sin – ie. Brother Stair, James Rice, and Rose (1Cor 6:3-8). Thus the reason for the heavy-handed rule and the condemnation of any who oppose them (1Pt 5:3). Never allowing God’s judgment to come on them. Never allowing the realization that they are the ones in error. This is and will always be the wickedness and abomination of the Overcomer Ministry. This is why God is not there and has nothing to do with it – except judgment. Until it accepts His judgment upon its leaders they will continue to die off and decrease till His full judgment removes them from the land (Jer 16:13; Deut 29:28).
Keep on loving each other as brothers (Hebrews 13:1 NIV84).
A Few Highlights from the Service
Deceived of God. This was a pet phrase of Brother Stair. He would use it to justify his deception as if that made it all good. What a deception he was under. God’s strong delusion was sent to him to damn him (2Thes 2:11-12). Brother Stair’s nonchalant take on this overlooks the many scriptures warning us to not be deceived and to be on our guard against deceivers. Brother Stair’s nonchalant justification of this is so that you drop your guard and blindly submit and accept everything he says.
God told me He would send me young men. Then when Brother Stair lost them all or drove them away (3Jn 1:9-11), he cops out and says I didn’t lose them they rebelled. Brother Stair also said in the past that what marks a ministry of God is that it has mostly young men. Thus we see again that the Overcomer is not a ministry of God.
You’re a bunch of fools people. Treat me like you do. Always focusing on how he’s being treated – just like we’ll see in Pastor Rice in a bit. Never a concern about how he treats God’s people or that he reaps what he sows (Gal 6:7; Pr 16:18, 14:14; 2Cor 9:6). No to him, that kind of nonsense is for others, not prophets. Remember earlier when he said that Those not hearing are in danger of Hell fire? Well, Jesus actually said that calling them fools is actually what puts you in danger of Hell fire (Mt 5:22). Missed it by that much.
Dumitru Duduman wouldn’t come here. His son told me to stop using his materials. Which Brother Stairrefused to do. That should speak volumes to us about what Duduman saw in Brother Stair’s ministry and what he discerned about Brother Stair. Still, Brother Stair REBELLED and did him wrong. All for his own gain and merchandising. How do you not see that? Even Duduman’s son knew that. Imagine what Dumitru must have told his son about Stair that made him demand that Stair stop using his materials.
Why do you keep resisting me? Good question, why God’s people always resisted Brother Stair? Let you think about that one for a minute.
Brother Stair said that they needed him and he would protect them. We can see how this was a Service before 2017 when he abandoned them and left them to the wolves.
Brother Stair loves reading emails boasting himself up. And loves putting God’s people down. “What a preacher”. Oh, the edification that must bring to the body of Christ.
You self righteous egotistical… people. Quick where’s that mirror he keeps talking about?
What a Showman!
One way we see this showmanship is in his constant reference to someone other than his congregation that he’s playing to. His incessant desire to ramp up the people and modulate them according to his whims on his rollercoaster ride. His constant desire is that he can control them, even in his preaching he wants to be in control of them and have them blow and bend to the wind he’s blowing. The same as we will witness in Pastor Rice in a moment.
The Sin of God
God even used my sin. This is one of the ways Brother Stair used to justify himself and excuse his sin. He put it all on God and never took responsibility for it. Then he backtracks with more justification to say he’s not glorifying sin, but that’s just his cop-out for glorifying sin. Perhaps he forgot The LORD is far from the wicked (Pr 15:29). Thus it was easy for us to see his parallels to being the man of sin.
I was watching Korea this morning.. Korean porn? [That statement is based on what Brother Stair called his MO, his modus operandi – his method of operating or functioning.] What part of “get the instrument of audio/visual out of your houses” does he not understand from God’s command to him?
Fulfillment of Scripture
I told you, I’m found in scriptures. Indeed! We have been telling you this for years. Brother Stair is found in the scriptures, just not the ones that he tells you he’s in, and certainly not the ones he wants to be found in. Several times today Brother Stair went on about how he’s fulfilling the scriptures and that he’s in there. Yet…
You all know what I’ve done. Yes, some of us do but others refuse to acknowledge the truth and continue in the dark ditch following the blind prophet, and now his blind pastor (Mt 15:14; Lk 6:39). They are heading for destruction (2Pt 2:1). Do you want to join them? Too bad, they teach that no man doth join himself, it takes a special witness from demonic forces to blind you into receiving this prophet – delusion (2Thes 2:10).
I get very upset when people turn away from hearing me. James Rice will use this rhetoric too. This has been the song on his harp as of late. Just like here where Brother Stair is talking about someone he’s having issues with. Sound familiar? A familiar spirit (Isa 8:19-20; Lev 19:31)?
What a wonderful ministry this is. Reading this nonsense from an email that will also increase this perversion in the phone callers with similar rhetoric. As we will witness later when Pastor Rice gets a sister to call in.
More Knowledge of Grace
If you really understand this you would have a more … reaction. This argument is so that if you don’t respond as dictated then you are automatically in the other camp, in this case without understanding.
What we are witnessing here today is more knowledge of Grace in the leader of Grace Community. Now we see that this wickedness is not a surprise to the followers of Pastor Rice. Because that is what they are – followers of James Rice. They are not stopping to question whether this is of God or thinking to pass judgment upon the wickedness that they are being confronted with. Ney, they are required to submit to it. This is the whole debate these days – the others who are resisting and shaming Pastor Rice to hold him accountable for his stewardship.
Which makes James Rice’s later statements on those factors a show that he is trying to be preemptive in his attack on the others who actually have this issue with him. Thus it appears that Rice is in the right and that they are the ones in need of explaining themselves. This is the spirit of the age and the game in the political arena today. This was the operation of Brother Stair’s ministry. Same as it ever was. All things continue as they were…
See, you don’t like my honesty. Honesty? That would have been the day. We would have loved your honesty if we would have ever witnessed it.
What Lack Ye Yet
What lack ye yet? Charity. You’ll find out where ye lack. Brother Stair goes on about looking at 1 Corinthians 13 and that what fruit you lack shows that you don’t have charity. He mentions the fruit of the spirit. If you lack in any you don’t have love. I lacked on one. Brother Stair lacks in them ALL. Take a look at them, we did. Check out the list in this article that reveals much more.
I can do it in the Holy Ghost. I can be gentle. Since he just stated that he’s not gentle but he can be, he just said that he’s not in the Holy Ghost. This is magnified even more when he states, Right now He’s got to keep me pretty tough. Again, Brother Stair declares that he’s not walking in the gentleness of the Holy Ghost. So there’s something that ye yet lack in. Who then is he walking in? John 10:10 will tell you.
Chris’s momma isn’t going to Heaven. This is because she had the discernment to reject Brother Stair. Thus she has to be relegated to Hell to put all in fear of rejecting the Great and Powerful Oz. How’s that what lack ye yet list going?
All my children speak well of me. Yeah, they do. This fruit is lacking in humility. So because his daughter wouldn’t get involved in speaking against him. Thus he interprets it as “well speaking” rather that their total rejection of him as having nothing to do with him or anything that relates to him (Pr 15:27). They have gone on. Just like the masses that have fled from him to the true shepherd (John 10:11, 14; 1Tim 6:5). Again, he’s having to convince his people that don’t believe him on this, Yeah, they do.
Death of a Prophet
I’m going to lose my head. Brother Stair lost the true head (Christ) long ago and set out to set himself up as the head (leader). But here he’s talking about being beheaded by the Pope in Jerusalem. A prophecy/statement that his followers have somehow abandoned and forgotten because he failed in this most important point.
Rejected by many people. Despised by most. This has always been Brother Stair’s great virtue signal. Because people despise and reject him that he is therefore right and on the side of Christ Who was also. This is a type of straw man argument that makes the play that one thing means another. This logic would mean that Charles Manson, Jim Jones, Ted Bundy, and many others are also right and in Christs’ camp.
After my decease. Going back to his point of losing his head, Brother Stair talks more about his death. This is the all-important point that Pastor Rice, his followers, and anyone still following Brother Stair have abandoned. They have turned from what the prophet considered his most important words – the manifestation of his death signs. These manifestations are rejected by Pastor James Rice and relegated to some spiritual meaning that he is left to interpret at his whim. One thing Brother Stair got right was that after my departure grievous wolves would come in and not spare the flock (Acts 20:29). But then again, that’s exactly what he was doing all along too.
Softly and Tenderly
I’ve been very tender with you, whether you admit it or not. LOL Said every psychopathic narcissist. This statement in itself is evidence that he has not been tender – no one will admit it. Unless he abuses you into confessing it. Any psychologist will tell you that this statement is a clear red flag.
You’re not gonna receive… There it is again. The forcing by coercing. Thus you must receive and admit it that he’s very tender with you or you’re just in receiving and therefore in rebellion. What a perverted doctrine.
Don’t come up here and judge me on my works of holiness. Judge me on His works of holiness. Nobody sees that except people of faith. He judges you by His word. You’re not going to take it away from me. Because you want to be a little god.
We’re not going to be able to find any works of holiness in Brother Stair, so he sure wouldn’t want to be judged by that. This whole discourse is classic Brother Stair wordplay manipulation of the scriptures. He salts this justification and sidetracking with condemnation – you’re not of faith if you don’t buy this.
So he’s telling us that we don’t need to be holy because God is. This is like the line he used on the sister when they would question fornicating with him and he would say God will forgive. This whitewash is going to get you a free ticket to Hell. I guess Be ye holy; for I am holy doesn’t really read that way (1Pt 1:16, 15)? What God really meant was I am holy so you don’t need to be holy… right? Are you buying this heresy? This is not the teachings of Brother Stair that many followed pre-2001. No wonder they fled (1Tim 6:5).
So since He judges you by His word, then how about we understand what His word says and not this nonsense rhetoric heresy that Brother Stair is using to justify his sin? Does this mean that Noah didn’t need to build an Ark because God was his Ark? And certainly Moses didn’t need to build a Tabernacle according to the pattern in Heaven because God already had one (Ex 25:9).
How about when His word says this in James 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only? Or Hebrews 12:14 – Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord? Oh well, there’s always this verse to show us what’s going on here, Revelation 22:11 – He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
In the world of the Overcomer, things are continuing as they were. But that’s okay because the Lord cometh… To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him (Jude 1:14-15; 2Thes 1:8). That, is what His word says!
Judge me on His works of holiness, His works of holiness are what He did on the Cross. There He made the way for us to walk in works of holiness, thus showing ourselves to be His children (1Jn 3:3-9, 2:28). And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure. Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous (1John 3:3, 6-7). Now we see that Brother Stair didn’t abide in Christ, nor seen or known Him. There’s your judgment!
Because you want to be a little god. You’re not going to take it away from me. Who here has become the little god? Guess he doesn’t want his congregation to give him any competition. This hard-headed You’re not going to take it away from me is classic Stair. He will not relent in his rebellion. He’s going to keep on in his sin and neither you nor God is going to take it away from me. Thus he continued.
Boy, if you people could grasp that point. Couldn’t have said it any better.
A lot of speculation but no revelation. This has been the hinge of Brother Stair’s ministry. Making himself a prophet and declaring that only by a prophet can the end-time events be revealed has been his bread and butter. This is the lie that he made out of Revelation when he said that it’s not by calculation but by revelation that the antichrist is revealed or known. This is directly opposite of what that scripture says. Several translations say calculate rather than count (NKJV, BSB). Still, to count (KJV) is to calculate and not to revelate. This phrase is also a good footnote to his ministry – A lot of speculation but no revelation. As all his prophecies tell.
We did not follow a 7-year tribulation. This is because deceivers like Brother Stair shorten the time. In their wearing out the patience of the saints, they seek to change times and laws (Dan 7:25). This is the salesman’s marketing tactic that brings about scarcity and urgency. To this, he adds fear and makes the dreadful times shortly upon us – perhaps we’re even already in them. This is the rhetoric that Brother Stair has used throughout his ministry.
Why the Hell won’t this house back me up? Perhaps the most overlooked indication that God is not in agreement with what Brother Stair says. Here again, we have God’s people with the Holy Spirit, not in agreement with the assertions of Brother Stair. Just like when he says again and again in this service, God damn it! I can’t get 100% cooperation. Why can’t I get this house to agree with me on that? And when Pastor Rice parrots it, This is so right. Can I get some witnesses here? Very telling – if you’re not blind.
All Things Continuing
All things continue as they were (they’re crazy). In his distraction of countering this statement so that he’s not saying it, he epitomizes it. James Rice continues in this as well. Yes, at the Overcomer Ministry all things continue as they were. As it always has at the Overcomer Ministry. This is the ministry of Brother Stair and his wickedness continues in Pastor James Rice. Demons don’t sleep or die, they find new hosts. It is now evidently set forth before you who hosts them now at the Overcomer (Gal 3:1).
My only hope is for God’s people to hear. Pastor Rice will use this one. That’s a sad hope for a preacher. Thus salvation was far from the Overcomers.
It’s corrupt to the core. They are both inundated with lies. Speaking of Trump and politics Brother Stair describes to us his life and ministry. The only problem here is that he has hidden and blinded his people to these truths. Inundated with lies and corrupt to the core! That should be on the Maranatha sign.
This nonchalant makes no effort to … iniquity. Ah, the iniquity rhetoric again.
Make no effort to strive to hear you’re in danger of Hellfire. Actually, the scripture that uses those terms when Jesus says whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire (Matt 5:22). Try reading your Bible. Brother Stair cares more about your submission to him and hearing him than he does about your obedience and conformity to the word of God. Actually, he has no regard for you obeying God’s word – he only uses those phrases when he makes ‘God’s word’ say what he wants it to say – for his own purposes – as we see here.
The Rice was ready this time. He was happy with this service because it filled up his ammo can to overflowing. He even opened in prayer himself rather than calling on a brother. Then he goes about his usual reiterating the words of Brother Stair that he just fed on and using them for his own ends. The mouth of a fool feeds on folly (Pr 15:14b NIV78).
You heard people then aren’t here now. Prophets and spiritual people. James Rice is putting down those who left (remember that was 99%) because we constantly hear them shouting and carrying on before they received the knowledge of the truth and fled from the evil one (1Tim 6:5; 1Thes 5:22). He further puts some down by making out that some of them thought they were prophets and spiritual – like Brother Stair, Rick Bell, and James Rice do.
We won’t repent though hu? How about being a first partaker Pastor Rice (2Tim 2:6)? How about starting with that adulterous unlawful affair of having your brother’s wife (Mark 6:18; Lev 20:21)?
These things are continuing. To our shame. Indeed the demonic triad of discord, division, and deception is in full swing. Not forgetting the sex perversion, lordship, cursing, raging, blaming, and self-justification. Just to name a few of the fine fruits of the Overcomer Ministry. These things continue as they were always at the Overcomer (2Pt 3:4).
Folk that won’t gather in the Dining Hall or here, Just like noted earlier in how Brother Stair was blind to see or understand what God was saying through His people, James Rice refuses to acknowledge the truth and be accountable before the people of God to why some are shaming him over his sins – as told to do by scriptures (1Cor 5:1-2; Pr 15:17). Paul’s instruction in 1Corinthians 6 was that the least esteemed in the church could sort this out. But nay, the ruler feels he must make the court go the way he wants it to go. Same as it ever was.
If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? No, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. Why do ye not rather take wrong? Why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. (1Cor 6:4-8)
Those here need to agree on everything. No, there must be divisions so that James Rice can be seen to be in error (1Cor 11:19 NLT). As the tale of the 99% that have fled tells (1Tim 6:5). For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you (1Cor 11:19 NASB95). Heresies among you is how the KJV puts it, and the Overcomer leaders are never short on heresy, as we have shown you. This Brother Stair harped scripture is Paul wishing this was so – but it wasn’t so even in his churches, you come together not for the better but for the worse (1Cor 11:17 NASB95).
So why are these deceivers intent on beating this dead horse and refusing to go on and perfect the church (Jude 1:4)? Because their power to rule is in their getting full agreement to them. From the testimony of Pastor Rice there are plenty to fulfill this scripture if he would allow it, In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established (2Cor 13:1). Why don’t we get to hear the witnesses against him?
You all want me to quote him [Brother Stair]? No, you should be obeying him if you consider yourself a follower. We quote him for you, but that doesn’t make us believe him or follow his false teachings. Neither does Pastor Rice’s quoting Brother Stair and then calling his words a trap to expect them to come to pass. Me thinks that’s one of the problems that those ‘others’ are having with you dear Pastor.
I caught you with your hands in the cookie jar. Yeah by the Voice of the Last Day Prophet of God who you say you believe. Like the way I did that? So clever there Pastor Rice. Yet you fail to like the way we did that with your words. “And you’re still doing it this morning.”
Throw away what we can’t agree on. Buy the truth and sell it not. Wait, earlier Pastor Rice said to throw out the truth if it’s not Rice’s truth. Sadly, they have sold their birthright for a mess of pottage (Gen 25:29–34).
His opposition asks him, Do you believe that everything Brother Stair said was the word of God? James Rice doesn’t answer. So, apparently not. He just enjoys trapping his opposers with Brother Stair’s words (Like the way I did that?). Then later he says What’s important is that you acknowledge that it’s from God. Really? He must be talking about his own words at this point.
Pastor Rice speaks about an evil spirit of bondage and later says, Somebody in here ought to get tired of getting bound up by the devil. We would hope everyone would get tired of that – we did. 99% did, and that’s why they left.
Same as it Ever Was
Unfaithful stewardship. If you don’t know that you shouldn’t even be here. A gross mishap. So what is required? That we give account. This is right out of the Bible. I see this gross misconduct in stewardship. I see it. We’re asking for this. I want to establish it now.
All that rhetoric was in diversion away from holding Pastor Rice accountable and holding others – you know, the ‘others’ – accountable. A mocker resents correction; he will not consult the wise (Pr 15:12 NIV78).
This good preaching. These same words from the same spirit as Brother Stair and many Pentecostal preachers who are so enamored with their own preaching that they are too self-deceived to know they are in error and narcissists.
One witness [Pastor Rice] shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established (Deut 19:15).
Otherwise, then we are partakers of their evil deeds. And now you should know why the ‘others’ have nothing to do with Pastor Rice and his evil deeds. But their epic blindness prevents them from seeing this truth. They are under God’s strong delusion because they have loved and believed the lie (2Thes 2:11-12).
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
These are the things which defile a man
The Abomination of Desolation
By this time it should be clear to all familiar with Brother Stair’s Overcomer Ministry that his abominations, which are continuing in and through Pastor James Rice, have been the cause of the ministries’ desolation.
This desolation will continue on as long as these demonic spirits are welcomed into new hosts. That is their goal – stealing, killing, and destroying (John 10:10). This has been the fruit of the Overcomer Ministry (Mt 7:20). 99% of all Brother Stair’s followers and 100% of the churches he pastored have left him. This is the epitome of a hireling, a false shepherd – at best a bad shepherd (Jn 10:13). In this vein ‘Pastor’ James Rice is seen continuing. He careth not for the sheep (Jn 10:13).
Evil is already insidiously at work but its activities are restricted until what I have called the “restraining power” (of God) is removed. When that happens the lawless man will be plainly seen—though the truth of the Lord Jesus spells his doom… The lawless man is produced by the spirit of evil and armed with all the force, wonders and signs that falsehood can devise. To those involved in this dying world he will come with evil’s undiluted power to deceive, for they have refused to love the truth which could have saved them. God sends upon them, therefore, the full force of evil’s delusion, so that they put their faith in an utter fraud and meet the inevitable judgment of all who have refused to believe the truth and who have made evil their play-fellow. (2 Thessalonians 2:7 Philips)
Here’s something interesting that is also one of Brother Stair’s teachings.
From such withdraw thyself (1Tim 6:5)
Read Your Bible!
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight (Pr 3:6 NIV78/RSV). What does that tell us about Brother Stair and Pastor Rice? Where you have crooked paths you have people who do not acknowledge God in all their ways – no matter how they speak to the contrary. They are liars. God’s word is true. God’s word will reveal to you the way these men walk. Read your Bible and depart from these worthless idols (Jonah 2:8 NIV84). Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace (Pr 3:17). Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not Thy law (Ps 119:134).
A people without understanding will come to ruin
(Hosea 4:14 NIV)

1 thought on “Sabbath Service – Oct 15, 2022 – Bro Stair [Old Service], Pr Rice”
Wow. It’s awful how we used to have to sit and listen to that all day! Sabbath was never a day of rest because Stair stole it to revolve around his insatiable desire to control everyone. He didn’t want families to have time together. He wanted people to work all the time. I hardly ever saw anyone take time to spend with their children playing ball or fishing. If they did it was definitely treated as a selfish act. Stair was threatened by family unity. I remember him saying there was no marriage in heaven so that was his justification for not allowing couples to date. I always wondered how Stair could discourage a natural desire to marry and have children as unto the Lord until I realized he was a pervert and a control freak. Even how he had that horrible ugly mean face when we tried to eat made it so awful. People were scared to have a conversation or Lord forbid smile or Stair was all over you! What a miserable man he was and to think we all thought he was like Jesus! NOT ANYMORE!! I remember once he bought chocolate bars and left them in the dining hall. Stair came in when all were assembled and asked if anyone had taken one and there was a deep hushed silence as he scanned the room hoping to catch someone who had made a mistake. When that didn’t get the result of having an easy target to munch on to accompany his evening meal, he switched tact and instead had to find fault with EVERYONE for not taking one. There was always a catch with Stair. In this way, he always had his bases covered, because either way it played out. He did this a LOT when asking brothers to give Scriptures. Even if they were correct he could pretend he wanted a different Scripture, or that they hadn’t been fast enough. When brothers hesitated to contribute because of this- well- he criticized them for that too! He always had a cunning agenda to undermine us. This was especially evident when Stair would target one particular individual to be the unlucky one driven out in order to cause fear of Stair by the ones remaining. Stair had to do this periodically in order to keep the level of fear and control ever present and fresh in our minds. Stair never wanted people relaxed or at peace. He wanted that tense feeling of uncertainty as though we needed him to think for us and to make us believe we had to be completely dependent on him. When I think of Stair, I get a sick feeling deep inside, because that’s how evil he was. He was a predator and wanted us completely incompacitated so he could steal our souls. It sounds like it’s the same place it was decades ago with Rice now.
