Resistance to Submission
“If a man comes in here sister, and he wants to rape you and you submit to him – he’s not raping you, you know. He only rapes if you resist. So if he goes ahead and does it [rapes you], you ain’t been raped.”
You wanna take the fuse out of a rapist? Submit to him!
(Brother Stair, Dec 2000)
It is these statements of Brother Stair that should cause us to realize why he teaches what he teaches with his emphasis on submission and to not resist. These teachings are spiritualized to be accepted, so that in practice when he comes to rape you that you will not resist him and you will submit to his victimization – because it’s the right thing to do. You can witness this in listening to the Overcomer Services in how he spiritually rapes his congregation and gets them to submit to his doing so. They have become so violated and defiled in their spirits, minds, and spiritual thinking that some never recover, and so comes to pass the fruit of Brother Stair as the destroyer of faith (2Tim 2:18). As Brother Stair sets himself up as the Greatest spiritual authority on the face of the Earth today; this is spiritual wickedness – in high places (Eph 6:12).
Submit to the Prophet
If you examine any of Brother Stair’s teachings you will find this submission to his authority to be the rule. All his teachings, doctrines, and commands of God are to bring people into submission to Brother Stair’s desires where he can reap from them, while they pay; and then they leave and more come. This is a revolving door ministry that maintains itself by the constant turnover of new brooms to bring in money and work the Farm. The ministers of God are not so (2Tim 2:24). God’s ministers are servants who serve the Body. Not with lip service saying that they are the ones truly loving, and caring, and feeding you (Eph 6:6). While the Body wastes away and perishes (99% loss), meanwhile Brother Stair continues on and prospers (Pr 73:3; Jer 12:1). Which he uses as a justification that God is with him and God has blessed him (Ex 20:7).
Realize that this statement was made before Brother Stair was charged with rape. Remember, this was the time when Brother Stair lied to us by teaching that he was without sin. So we weren’t to worry that submitting to him would have any sinful consequences – certainly not sexual ones since sexual sin was what he preached against the most. At that time he preached holiness and perfection and boasted that he didn’t sin anymore. To that he would also add that per Proverbs 24:16 (For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again) he was a just man that had already sinned his seven times and been raised up again; and that if he was to sin ever again that he would be done, lost, damned, finished. What he didn’t realize apparently was that the rest of that same verse was what applied to him, but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
For this very teaching, we should have all left him when he was exposed because it then established that he was both finished and was of no use to our spiritual growth and that he was a liar. To follow Brother Stair now is to follow a man that God is finished with and has no qualms lying to you to pull the wool over your eyes and hid his sins. To what ends would such a man lead us to? (Mt 15:14)
Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth. (2Timothy 2:15)
Yet this man of God just a few years before this time taught that Lust is not a sin, and that Jesus lusted. So we can see how this allowance of lust was already at work in his teachings (2Thes 2:7-9); so that if/when he was caught in lust it would not be sin.
Scripture is filled with admonitions for the conduct of God’s workers. Since Brother Stair’s works and fruit are to the contrary he uses his self-appointed calling of a prophet to justify his evil actions and the disapproval he receives from even God’s people. What is it Paul said in Timothy that makes this worker ashamed? (2Tim 2:15-19) It is that he is not right in his teaching of the Word of God. He is perverting it to his own ends. This not only makes his teaching false but it brings the word of God into disrepute (2Pt 2:2). This wrestling of scriptures (2Pt 3:16) to his own ends (their end is destruction, Php 3:19) is the reason Brother Stair establishes that he is beyond questioning and must be obeyed. That means to stop resisting him and submit to him, in everything. God’s men have never been so (2Tim 2:24).
God requires not only His ministers but especially His ministers to walk in holiness and purify themselves. For that is the inscription, the seal, of God’s foundation (2Tim 219). This foundational principle or doctrine cannot be bypassed if you expect to get into God’s Kingdom. If there were a Kingdom Gospel then this would be its message:
The firm foundation of God stands, having this seal,”Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.” (2Timothy 2:19 NASB)
From here Paul shows us how one’s walk of honor or dishonor will show us how, where, and if they can be used in God’s house. It is not one’s calling or anointing that makes him useful to the Master, it is his works (to which his fruit declares, Mt 7:20). Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. (2Tim 2:21) Therefore, if anyone does not cleanse himself he will not be prepared, sanctified, of fit for the greater works of the Master. The commands given to achieve this is to flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart (2Tim 2:22). A worker who does not flee lust is not useful to the Master except possibly (if he’s saved at all) for dishonorable tasks – like a toilet brush. He is wood, hay, and stubble; and those will be all burned up at the trial of fire where they will be made manifest (2Tim 2:20; 1Cor 3:12-13).
And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. (2Tim 2:24 NIV)
In their spiritual apathy they have become callous and past feeling and reckless and have abandoned themselves [a prey] to unbridled sensuality, eager and greedy to indulge in every form of impurity [that their depraved desires may suggest and demand]. (Eph 4:19)
I therefore, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to and beg you to walk (lead a life) worthy of the [divine] calling to which you have been called [with behavior that is a credit to the summons to God’s service, Living as becomes you] with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another. Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace.
(Ephesians 4:1-3 AMP)

It’s the resistance that excites him. They like when you resist.
(Brother Stair, Dec 2000)
This testimony of Brother Stair’s shows us one reason why he continues to keep himself at odds with his congregation. While he says he doesn’t like their resistance, he has done nothing in the way of changing his tactics to change their responses to his abusive behavior. Not ever trying to change the situation but rather, like he loves it, pours more gas on the fire. It seems to fuel him to go into his fits of rage. As he said, rapists like it when you resist. This is one of the many spirits on Brother Stair which show out and show up in his fruit (Pr 13:17; Mt 7:20).
Most amazing is that this angry abuse still continues in 2020 as Brother Stair is under house arrest and awaiting trial on several rape charges and various other offensive charges. This arrogant narcissistic spirit that is on him is so much in power of his facilities that he is taken over by it and is believing that he is invincible and will never go to prison for his crimes. After all, he managed to get away with it in 2002 he reasons. Stair supposes that God is going to deliver him again – while he continues even greater in his sexual sins amongst the Farm.
Pray for Brother Stair that he be delivered from the snare of the Devil and quit doing the Devil’s will (2Tim 2:26) which he has done and whose snare he has lived under for most (if not all) of his life, and repent of this his wickedness (Acts 8:22). Most of all, so that the Body of Christ that has been taken captive by his will through deception will be set free to serve Christ and live the lives God desires for them. Not the life Brother Stair desires from them.
