The Life of a 21st Century Prophet: You can do ALL things through Christ

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet
Standard

You yes you…I want to encourage you….

You can do ALL things through Christ which strengthens you.

I will use my life as an example. My life overflows with many blessings from God. One of the perks of being saved as a young child. I have many skills, talents, gifts, capabilities etc. I have never been one to settle for just doing one thing in life.

That is BORING!

I am a freelance writer, editor, poet (paid), published 30 odd books, trained teacher, counselor & programmer. In a good year, I can account for at least 100,000 ppl reading my work.

I have had the opportunity to act on stage, perform in front of people, sing etc. I have built websites, designed graphics, implemented software, worked in many positions. Most importantly, I have the privilege of being a CHILD and SERVANT of GOD…and I still hope to add more. I am in my 3rd decade of life. I can switch it up many more times.

Listen, don’t let people dictate your life and say what you can or cannot do. You can do anything and everything WITH GOD’s help. At the end of the journey, you should have no regrets. You should be able to say, I have lived.

Most importantly…If you raided the gift store before God brought you to this earth, you should be able to account to him for all the gifts you took and use them for HIS glory.

Revealing the Truth about Malachi 4

Malachi 4
Standard

The students of the Word of Almighty God are aware that the bible is filled with many parallels and passages, which are applicable to different points in history.

I read Malachi 4 a few nights ago, but this time I was receiving revelation that was hidden to me before.

As I read the words vs. listening to them, my thinking strayed towards the hot temperatures we have experienced; the hottest since records have been kept, so says climate experts.

Malachi 4:1‭-‬6 (NLT)

The Lord of Heaven’s Armies says, “The day of judgment is coming, burning like a furnace. On that day the arrogant and the wicked will be burned up like straw. They will be consumed—roots, branches, and all.

But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture. On the day when I act, you will tread upon the wicked as if they were dust under your feet,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “

Remember to obey the Law of Moses, my servant—all the decrees and regulations that I gave him on Mount Sinai for all Israel. “

Look, I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord arrives. His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers. Otherwise I will come and strike the land with a curse.”

This chapter speaks about a coming judgement. However, I was specifically drawn to “But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise…” I knew this was in reference to Jesus. But God communicated to my spirit that in these last days, demonic spirits will feel the impeding return of Jesus Christ just as we feel the heat of the sun.

After all, He is the Morning Star. It is not a coincidence that these names are used for Him, Christ Jesus.

Malachi gave this warning just before the world plunged into the Dark Ages. Now, we are experiencing forbearing natural incidents that causes alarm and trepidation in many. The world is hotter than it has ever been. There are droughts, floods, immense deforestation, pollution etc.

This chapter also comes with instructions from God to His people. He asks that we obey all the laws he gave to Moses. Did you know that these are the laws, not only for humanity but also of heaven?

We must prove ourselves obedient and faithful to them here on earth, so that we qualify for heaven.

God also foretells of the defeat of the enemy, for the sons and daughters of God. It shall be so thorough, the enemy is likened unto dust.

Praise God!

I urge you to obey His commandments and heed God’s warnings “Otherwise I will come and strike the land with a curse.”

Selah.

Revealing the truth about Charlie Sheen, HIV and Two and a Half Men – Part 2

Revealing the truth about Charlie Sheen, HIV and Two and a Half Men

If you live a life or perversion, sin and immorality, you will certainly reap its rewards.

For the Bible says:

‘For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord’.- Romans 6:23

Two and a Half Men

Two And A Half Men' Star Angus T. Jones

Two And A Half Men’ Star Angus T. Jones

I remember watching this show and soon after stopped. It was clear to me that it was only an indoctrination to womanizing and other immoral behaviors. I believe that Charlie Sheen was the perfect actor for this role, because it required no acting at all. This was his lifestyle.

The Holy Spirit is also indicating to me that his removal from the show in later years, had more to do with him having HIV, than his odd behavior which brought discredit to the show. We should also consider that when he ventured off to ‘rehab’ all those times, he was actually in some facility receiving treatment for the HIV virus.

The doctor who attended the interview with NBC’s The Today Show with Charlie Sheen, indicated that he and his staff were very worried about Charlie’s behavior, alcoholism, binge drinking and drug use. In the past he gave them reasons for those concerns. Charlie skipped his medication and as such it lead to a lapse in his health.

Depression is a beast that will cripple its victim and Charlie Sheen would have certainly met this beast as soon as he was diagnosed. It generally wreaks havoc with ones psychological state and you have suicidal tendencies.

I am simply stating everything the Holy Spirit is revealing to me about his condition.

According to Wikipedia,

Two and a Half Men is an American television sitcom that began broadcast on CBS on September 22, 2003 and ended on February 19, 2015 after twelve seasons. Originally starring Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones, the show was about a hedonistic jingle writer, Charlie Harper; his uptight brother Alan; and Alan’s son Jake. After Alan divorces, he moves with his son to share Charlie’s beachfront Malibu house and complicate Charlie’s freewheeling life.

In 2010, CBS and Warner Bros. Television reached a multi-year broadcast agreement for the series, renewing it through at least the 2011–12 season.[1][2] But, on February 24, 2011, CBS and Warner Bros. decided to end production for the rest of the eighth seasonafter Sheen entered drug rehabilitation and made “disparaging comments” about the show’s creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre.[3] Sheen’s contract was terminated on March 7.[4]

The ninth-season premiere, “Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt”, killed off Sheen’s character and introduced Ashton Kutcher as Walden Schmidt, his replacement.[5] Alan is shown moving on with his life after the death of Charlie. He has a new best friend and housemate, Walden, who is dealing with his own troubles following a bad divorce. Walden, Alan, and Jake eventually bond, becoming close friends and forming a surrogate family unit. Jake, who joins the army at the end of season nine, leaves for Japan at the end of season ten.

But God was in the midst of things then, as he is now.

Do you remember that Angus T. Jones, who played Jake Harper in the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, also left the show?

Why?

It was a very controversial matter back then.

Jones has admitted that:

Angus T. Jones, formerly the highest-paid child actor in TV history, says he was a “paid hypocrite” during his time on CBS‘ comedy Two And A Half Men because he “wasn’t OK” with being “part of something that was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people.” Jones, now 20 and a student at the University of Colorado in Boulder, talked to Houston TV station KHOU over the weekend; he was in town to speak at the World Harvest Outreach, a Seventh-Day Adventist congregation, the station said. “I really want to come into the light because I know that is where the healing is and I’ve seen God do amazing things,” Jones said.

In a November 2012 interview with a Christian website, Angus T. Jones (Jake) said he had recently converted to Christianity and joined a Seventh-day Adventist church. He attacked the show as “filth that contradicts his moral values” and said that he was sick of being a part of it.

“If you watch Two And A Half Men, please stop watching. I’m on Two And A Half Men and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.”

Angus T. Jones walked away from millions of dollars.

He walked towards the light. And who is the light?

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”- John 8:12 (ESV)

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. – John 14:6 (KJV)

God snatched him up just in time. The show was leading him down a path of perversion. He would have no doubt lived a life similar to Charlie Sheen. If you read the summary of all 12 seasons, you would have seen that trend too. By season 12, they had him in a relationship with a woman twice his age. That is not good and I am happy that he is out.

Hallelujah!

In the future we shall see a great change in this young man, Angus T. Jones. If he continues to yield himself to God and be a willing vessel, God will use him.

The first five seasons find Charlie in casual sexual relationships with numerous women until the sixth season, when he becomes engaged to Chelsea (Jennifer Taylor) however, the relationship does not last as Chelsea breaks off their engagement. Afterwards, Charlie flies to Paris in the eighth season finale with his stalker Rose. In the ninth season premiere, introducing a revamped show, it is revealed that Charlie died when he fell in front of a subway train in Paris. There are suggestions that Rose pushed him in the train’s path after learning Charlie had cheated on her.

Charlie is eventually revealed to be alive, having been kept prisoner by Rose until escaping, but he is killed before he can confront Walden and Alan.

The Warning

When I continued my review of the past seasons I read this section above. After reading this section, I felt dread as the Holy Spirit warned that Charlie Sheen should be careful that his life does imitate art, in full.

Sons and daughters of God, we should not back away. But NOW is the time to pray. we need to pray for the people of Hollywood. They were created by God and He loves them just as He loves us. Therefore we are commanded to pray for their souls.

Nothing is impossible with God.

I am not a theologian scholar and though I am a writer, I am simply a willing and available vessel for His purposes. I am completely sold out to God in this process.

Revealing the truth about Charlie Sheen, HIV and Two and a Half Men

If you live a life or perversion, sin and immorality, you will certainly reap its rewards.

For the Bible says:

‘For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord’.- Romans 6:23

Shock, sorrow, despair, anger and judgement has come upon the land.

The Epicenter of Perversion.

The City of Lights and Big Dreams.

The Oz of this world,  Hollywood.

Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.- Ezekiel 16:49 (NKJV)

Charlie Sheen announced his HIV positive diagnosis on The Today Show

Charlie Sheen announced his HIV positive diagnosis on The Today Show

The Announcement

Yesterday, many of us heard, watched and talked about the admission made by Charlie Sheen. He has the HIV virus.

The Shock did not take long to wreak havoc in the minds of men and women everywhere.It dominated social media and trended on Twitter. In the days and months to come we shall still see the ripple effect as it spreads around the world.

A Prophecy was given about this in 2014 and you can view it on Micha’el Reginald’s (Latter Day Prophecy).

California the Great

The devastation will not become fully apparent until every one of Charlie Sheen’s partners have declared their status and even then…

Are they HIV positive or negative?

It is a shame that this is what the world has come to. When the major headlines in the paper, on the internet and on our tongues is the sexual lifestyle of celebrities.

But oh what the judgement of God will wrought for the evil we wrought before.

The Bible does say that the wages of sin is death and many shall pay in the coming months and years. It is not that HIV and AIDS are new diseases; but they are the recompense for those who ventured into various sexual perversion.

I watched the interview on NBC’s The Today Show with Matt Lauer with mixed feelings, analyzing Charlie Sheen’s features and picking up on certain ques from his doctor. I saw no true remorse. I wondered if this was just another performance, though one he was forced to do. When Matt Lauer asked him, if he had disclosed his status to all his ‘sex partners’, I felt a pause in my spirit when he looked into the camera and admitted to doing so.

Charlie Sheen reveals he’s HIV positive in TODAY Show exclusive

I didn’t believe Charlie Sheen did so before coming on the show. I believe that he was using the opportunity on the show to do so. Therefore, he believes in that moment that he is telling the truth.The technicality of lying.

There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue… – Proverbs 6:16-17

“The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it? “I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds. – Jeremiah 17:9-10

I also felt that check in my spirit when his doctor was asked whether he had full-blown AIDS or just the HIV virus. He stumbled when he answered and said that Charlie did not have HIV and then he corrected himself.

Later on in the day the interviews with his past bed mates/goddesses/prostitutes/former porn stars, Bree Olson and Natalie Kenly, started to hit the airwaves and internet sites. They declared that he never told them of his condition. They visited doctors within the hours after Charlie Sheen’s interview. They presented results showing that they were HIV negative.

I bet you, they flew to the doctors faster than Barry Allen’s Flash.

Charlie Sheens Ex Goddess Bree Olson: He Never Told Me He Had HIV

The Warning

We as sons and daughters of God must guard ourselves, our hearts, our minds, our bodies, our families, our eyes. We must watch from under the shadow of the Almighty, for we live in a time when the Judgement of God is walking about.

This is a time declared in the word of God. The timbers of America are being shaken and many shall not live to see the other side of what remains. There shall be massive carnage and the souls of men shall quiver. There will be those who will cleave to the darkness, but they shall be destroyed.

Wikileaks was an act of ‘God lifting the frock tail’ of America. Disclosing her secrets/hidden acts. She has been shown to be not what she appears.

Since the legalization of homosexuality and the persecution of the Christians in the United States of America have escalated; the voices of the children of God has pressed into the ears of God. He acts now. He is releasing help for them and in Him, they shall run to.

Judgement is on the land.

Preachers of LA: Acceptance of Shacking, Fornication?

deitrick haddon and dominque haddon
Standard

Preachers of LA is churning along and with it a mix of controversy. Bishop Noel Jones, Minister Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Jay Haizlip, Pastor Wayne Chaney, and Bishop Ron Gibson are the featured ministers of this show. Viewers were probably tipping over themselves with all the issues that came to light in Season 1, Episode 2 – Acceptance. Each bishop or pastor had their own pot to stir.

pastor-jay-haizlipPastor Jay Haizlip is considered to be one of the pioneering greats in the sport of skateboarding and has been consistent in the sport since he was 13 years of age. Pastor Jay Haizlip is very compassionate and extends this passion to young people and those in need. In today’s society one of the major issues facing the church and Christians is that of dealing with gay and transgender issues. This was no different for Lead Pastor of The Sanctuary World Outreach Inc.

Pastor Haizlip, though uncomfortable with the issue of one of his flock changing their sexual orientation, did not shun the young woman – a transgender former church member.. What he did was express that he was having some difficulty with the transition, but that regardless, this person would still get his love and support as a pastor. He invited the individual to come back and attend church and they would continue to pray and work together.

Bishop Ron Gibson and his wife, First Lady LaVette Gibson, decided that they would extend reach out to

deitrick haddon and dominque haddon

deitrick haddon and dominque haddon

Deitrick Haddon and his fiancée, Dominique, and provide some mentoring as it relates to marriage. They invited the young couple to dinner, to learn more about them and their situation. Deitrick divorced his first wife Damita Haddon, who is a vocalist. He has a daughter Destin Monet with Dominique Mctyre, the mother of his first child. This situation is why Bishop Gibson wants to help the young couple as they are of the opinion that nothing is wrong with them ‘shacking’ or living together before marriage.

Deitrick Haddon is a firecracker and initially he was very defensive with the old school stance of Bishop Gibson, as it relates to being a pastor and his past. Nonetheless, he was receptive to the idea or receiving help to make his second relationship and long-term one. First Lady LaVette Gibson tried to make it clear to the couple that it is not God‘s will, as Dominique Mctyre is of the opinion on the Preachers of LA that, “I love him! Who cares if I live with Deitrick Haddon?”. She also stated that “If he wasn’t who he was, nobody would care.”

If there was no other explosive issue on the Preachers of LA show, this stance was certainly it. The Church is all about living according to the principles/laws of God, set in His word, the Bible. The character and reputation of this young couple is scrutinized, because they want to ‘shack’.

We will definitely stay tuned for more episodes and see how the pastors deal with the issues that they face on a daily basis.

bishop noel jonesIn Season 1, Episode 1, Comeback of Preachers of LA, viewers are introduced to the cast Clarence McClendon, Deitrick Haddon, Jay Haizlip, Noel Jones, Ron Gibson, Wayne Chaney and their family members.

Though you are bombarded by how lavish a lifestyle they lead, – with flashes of ‘Bentleys, range rovers, huge mansions, stylish suits, and jewelry – you get a glimpse into their ministries and flashes of their churches and congregation. During the season, you will notice that not much time is given to the inner workings and going on, at the various churches. However, more emphasis and exposure is given to the Preachers of LA home life and social activities.

deitrick haddon and dominque haddon

One of the big events that occurred in Season 1, Episode 1, Comeback, was the larger than life gospel concert hosted by Deitrick Haddon. There has been some scandal surrounding Deitrick. He has been off the radar while going through a divorce, having a child out-of-wedlock with Dominique Haddon and he is at the point of restarting his ministry and music career. Without a doubt, the concert was a hit and a blessing.

Bishop Ron Gibson, was even able to bring two known ‘Compton gangsters’ to Christ because of the concert/ministry. He has a passion for sharing the gospel with fellows who are thugs and drug users/pushers, because that is a lifestyle which he once led. During the Preachers of LA season you will see him minister to several of these young and old men; including his own family members.

clarence-mcclendon-preachers-of-laClarence McClendon is one of the more well-known of the Preachers of LA cast members. His exposure in the program seems to be minimal. Whether this is on purpose, we can only guess; nonetheless, he is one of the first to create some controversial moments for this show.

Jay Haizlip, Noel Jones and Wayne Chaney are also featured. Jay brings more of a skater and punk rock kind of vibe to the Preachers of LA show. To see him, many would not believe him to be a man of God; but he brings such a peace and humility to the show.

Bishop Noel Jones, who has roots in Jamaica, is portrayed as being a workaholic; the man of God who has devoted his entire existence to jay-haizlipthe ministry and sharing the gospel world-wide. The series shows his issues with ‘girl friend’ Loretta Jones and the progression of their relationship.

Wayne Chaney and his wife add the romantic spice to the cast and this is clear in Season 1, Episode 1 – Comeback.

Before Season 1, Episode 1 ends, you are certain to have formed some opinions, good and bad; nonetheless, I urge you to review this reality series objectively.

Take into consideration the good and the bad. Take into consideration their outreach ministry.

Take into consideration those people who would come to understand and know Christ because of it, regardless.

Preachers of LA: Staying True to the Thug Mentality and Swag

Bishop Ron Gibson
Standard

Episode 6 – Staying True to You was very intriguing and in keeping with the build up of drama on past episodes. Preachers of LA is proving its weight in gold and at the same time opening the eyes and hearts of people across the world. The focus this week was on Bishop Ron Gibson – (His Thug Mentality and Swag), Pastor Jay Haizlip – (Getting tattoos) and Bishop Clarence McClendon – (Music Ministry and calling of his son).

clarence-mcclendon-preachers-of-laLets start with Bishop Clarence McClendon; in Episode 6 we are given more insight into the relationship between himself and his older son. McClendon discloses that he too had a love for music as a child and wanted to pursue that; however, this was not permissible because of the generation in which he grew up and the bigger calling, to the pulpit, on his life.

Bishop Clarence McClendon was born and raised in Decatur, Illinois and began preaching at age fifteen. He assumed his first pastorate position at age nineteen and today, serves as the Senior Pastor of Full Harvest International Church, a growing global, multi-ethnic, multi-lingual congregation located in the South Bay area of California. He is also the founder and president of Siloam Bible College and the Clarence E. McClendon Leadership Institute, and also the founder and president of the umbrella corporation, Clarence E. McClendon Ministries (CEMM), which sponsors the weekly international television broadcast A Miracle for You, Bishop McClendon is able to fulfill the prophetic mandate to share the word of God with people around the world. Currently more than 250 million homes have access to CEMM broadcasts throughout North America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Bishop McClendon has many responsibilities and therefore it is understandable that he is grooming his son to fill his shoes. In Preachers of LA: Season 1, Episode 6 – Staying True to You, we see his son lead the music ministry for the 2 p.m. service and afterwards the Bishop rates how his son performed. This is an important portrayal to Christians and non-Christians alike as this is exactly how men in business prepare their children, to not only inherit their business, but to have the skills to run a successful one. In this case, the business is an International Church, Bible College and an umbrella corporation.

jay-haizlipJay Haizlip had us thinking about a long time controversial issue – tattoos and Christians. Certainly, off the bat, I agree its an old mindset. Nonetheless, I want to be biblical and correct. Wayne Chaney‘s wife, Myesha, had a very pressing view; you don’t want to offend and affect your church ministry. This issue does not affect Pastor Haizlip because majority of his congregation have tattoos and that his the social sphere of which he is from.

But as it relates to Pastor Chaney, his congregation is a bit more traditional; in the coming months how are they gonna reflect on the fact that their lead pastor wanted to get a tattoo? Will this affect his ministry? his believers? What does the bible say about tattoos and Christians getting them? Does He really not care about what is on the outside as Pastor Haizlip teaches and believes? To answer some of these questions, many of us will have to do some bible study, fasting and praying to search out the answer God will give us; for ourselves.

Bishop Ron Gibson, gave us a well seasoned and served chilled ‘food for thought’. This week’s episode saw his ron gibson and wifefellow ministers cautioning him about being too gangster, flamboyant and arrogant; these are his words, not mine. the Bishop sought the counsel of his trusted and beloved wife, Lady LaVette Gibson, who also reiterated the point and mentioned that it is true. Bishop Ron tends to mention the cost, designer brand of his clothing, cars etc. She counseled him, again, not to rub it in the face of his congregation. We see this happen on Preachers of LA, Season 1, Episode 6 – Staying True to You.

Bishop Ron is a former gang member. This is the premise of his ministry and he goes back into Compton to preach and teach drug addicts and gang members there. Bishop Gibson is also a licensed fire arm holder and this is also a topic of controversy for some. Some would argue that has a man of the cloth, he should exercise his faith and trust God to protect him; while others may argue he is simply being wise and that gang members have no respect for God, but they respect ‘the glock’.

As Preachers of LA continues, we will become more exposed to the developing issues in these ministers, pastors and bishops lives. Whether it be tattoos, swag or ministry; Preachers of LA certainly will keep us talking and many of us studying scripture like never before..myself included.

Preachers of LA: A Lession in Perspective and Priorities

Wayne Chaney and wife Myesha Chaney
Standard

Preachers of LA continues to unfold and reveal the difficulties faced by several American pastors, ministers and bishops. In Season 1, Episode 5 – Perspective & Priorities we get to see the pressures and expectations of a pastor who has thousands of members in his flock. We also come to understand that they are also human beings and need psychological help as well.

pastor wayne chaneyAccording to their website, Pastor Wayne A. Chaney Jr. is the senior pastor of Antioch Church of Long Beach…under his visionary leadership the church has experienced exponential growth both numerically and spiritually. He is the grandson of the late Dr. T.M. Chambers, Sr. as well as the late Rev. Joe Chaney, Jr. He descends from a long lineage of pastors, teachers, and preachers; and possesses a rich spiritual heritage.

His commitment and involvement in ministry extends beyond Antioch and the local community. Throughout the country he has ministered to various congregations, conventions, and conferences.  Globally, he has touched the lives of people in countries such as Mexico, Israel, Indonesia, New Zealand, England, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Israel, Malaysia, and Singapore.

He formerly served as President of the California National African American Network, SBC and Board Member of the National African American Network, being the youngest person to serve in both capacities. He was on the Executive Board of the California Southern Baptist Convention. Pastor Chaney serves on the Executive Board of Global Tribe International, whose mission is to rescue those in physical and spiritual poverty, reach communities with the gospel and recruit and empower young leaders.  He is the president emeritus of the Long Beach Ministers Alliance.

Pastor Wayne Chaney is happily married to Myesha Chaney and has three beautiful children Wayne III, Reign, and Cadence. Wayne Chaney and myesha chaneyHe and his wife Myesha are faced with issues related to being in the ministry full-time. His ministry has been so successful, he is now strained and pulled in many directions. Exercising wisdom, Pastor Chaney has sought to find an Executive Pastor. The search offered no one in the past, but Season 1, Episode 5 – Perspective & Priorities shows us that Myesha offered up herself for the position.

The Chaney’s sought the council of the board members of the church. The board brought up valid points of nepotism, how men would react to Myesha’s leadership in the church etc; but as Pastor Chaney said, ‘at the end of the day, the decision was his to make’. Their biggest concern was that of how it would affect their marriage and family life. The Chaney’s are depicted as the loving and sexual couple on Preachers of LA; therefore it is understandable that they would not want ministry business to affect their personal relationship. Both decided that they would not take church business home and work even harder to preserve their marriage.

The relationship issues faced by Bishop Noel Jones and Loretta Jones were highlighted in Season 1, Episode bishop noel jones5 – Perspective & Priorities episode. Bishop Jones eventually sought the help of a psychologist to explore his commitment issues. It was revealed that his mother practically abandoned him in Jamaica at the age of seven. He rarely saw her over the next decade. Due to this experience Bishop Noel Jones dives into his work and leaves no room for any romantic relationships. Certainly the Bishop can be admired for his dedication to the spreading of the gospel and the growth and well-being of the church, globally. Nonetheless, if as a man he is dating someone, he owes it to them to be honest and fix whatever issues are between them.

bishop noel jones and lorettaHe is even provoked into a friendly wager by Bishop Ron Gibson, when they were playing pool. Bishop Ron Gibson said “That woman is physically beautiful, mentally intelligent, loves him to the core. My common sense along with the inspiration of the holy spirit told me that you wont find a woman better than that one.” To which Bishop Noel Jones responded, “Sometimes it’s not as easy as it seems. I’m running around preaching everywhere. Do I want the chance of ruining a marvelous friendship with marriage?! At the end of the day the decision has to be mine”.
