Concerning a recent pathetic tirade which we only reluctantly address

Concerning a recent pathetic tirade which we only reluctantly address 

To Whom It May Concern,
Christian Greetings & Season’s Blessings.
A Moriel volunteer who monitors the internet forwarded us a link to a ridiculous blog article entitled:’Jacob the deceiver’.
While we have had no correspondence from our subscribers regarding this new attempted maelstromof defamatory and slanderous cyber harassment against Moriel & James Jacob Prasch, once again by Deborah Menelaws of ‘Studio Scotland’, we do wish to pre-empt any with a quick and  to the point reaction.Admittedly, most people , like ourselves, are long tired of this cyber vendetta, and their GV 24/7 gets too few viewsto take very seriously. We therefore only respond to her latest baseless polemic “Jacob the deceiver”, for the sake of any of our newer subscribers who per chance may see it, (although we have not heard from any), doing so with reluctance.
*  Moriel only operates one website, and that is its own. No such person is known to us as ‘Caio; Michael’ to whom Menelaws ascribes the following remarks: *Hell Deborah you fat smelly mutant tuna fish stinking aids ridden unwanted piece of garbage”.  We do not even appear to have such a person on our mail list. We cannot comment on his claim that Deborah Menelaws has aids; her personal health issues are none of our business. We simply object to her efforts to link us to a person who dislikes her whom we have never even heard of. Indeed, a range of people we know dislike her, but him we do not know.
Menelaws appears to be claiming that this ‘Caio Michael’ has a counterfeit website of some description, posting bogus content for which she falsely blames Moriel. This is pure nonsense. We do not even know who he is. In the last few years a wide gamut of people (most, but not all of them, women) have contacted us denouncing Menelaws. We know pastors in Scotland, England, & Northern Ireland have banned her from their churches, calling her ‘End Time Handmaiden’ show(where Deborah Menelaws is a self appointed ‘mother hen’)  ” Cultic” and built on mysticism and Gnostic perversions of scripture. Such pastors however may speak for themselves , and Caio Michael speaks for himself. We speak only for Moriel.

* Before James Jacob Prasch worked with Studio Scotland, he authored several books, and did conferences in the USA 
(sometimes with thousands attending) with major Christian figures such as Tim La Haye, David Hocking, Chuck Missler,Dave Hunt, and Chuck Smith. With no reference to Menelaws, he had what at the time was the most regularly viewed Christian TV program in Britain (and possibly Europe), before leaving due to his objection to money preachers.Hideous claims by Menelaws that the Menelaws ‘made Jacob known’ are demonstrably absurd. God made him known.
* Caspari, which has its own centre in Jerusalem, Israel is where Jacob Prasch commenced his formal theological education with Cambridge University (he had previously been to university, but not seminary or bible college – although he had earlier learned Greek & Latin in the USA, and already acquired Hebrew). The Cambridge University Diploma in Religious Studies (which Jacob did in Judaism) is the Cambridge University curriculum which issued the credential. The course material , exam grading etc. was all by Cambridge University professors & examiners in England. However, the advantage of studying on site in Israel instead of in England of course, were the Hebrew language and local proximity to relevant archaeological excavations , Judaica museums etc.  Jacob did do a theological degree in England however atLondon Bible College (today called ‘London School of Theology’) , and then commenced post graduate studies for a M. Phil. Instead however, he enrolled in a doctoral program at Fuller Seminary electing to turn an M. Phil into doctorate. A very serious auto collision in 1996 however put an end to his efforts, (which he later saw as providential given the unfortunate direction Fuller gravitated towards theologically and spiritually). 
* Without a doctorate, Jacob has defined himself as “academically trained, but not an academic – scholarly but not a scholar”. While he has published academic journal papers, as an author , in terms of style, he follows A.W. Tozer, FB Meyer, Martyn Lloyd Jones, Chas. Spurgeron, Francis Shaffer etc. in recycling academic material for an ordinary Christian readership. As with these authors and others, Jacob  avoids scholarly syntax, explains the meaning of technical jargon (which academic books do not do need to do), and instead of footnoting, uses parenthetical referencing, and instead of Hebrew & Greek script that the average Christian cannot read, he uses italicized transliteration. Most authors making scholarly material digestible to an ordinary Christian readership do this same thing in lieu of publishing in an academic format (which is theology written for other theologians, but not for ‘feeding the sheep’). Classic examples are the Credal Apology by Oxford Don CS Lewis’  ‘Mere Christianity’ , the ‘Commentary on Matthew’ by Wycliffe Hall Oxford Principal RT France, and Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum’s  epic ‘Hebrew Christianity : Its History & Philosophy’ . While CS Lewis & RT France (who was also one of Jacob’s lecturers at London Bible College) were Oxford professors, neither published books for general readership in an academic format. In imitation of them, neither does James Jacob Prasch. To dismiss the validity of Jacob’s books on the basis of not being academically formatted and footnoted, would automatically require that the doctrinal & prophecy books by figures such as David Pawson, Tony Pearce, Roger Oakland, and many , many others  also be discredited on precisely the same exact basis. 
* Authors, commentators, and editorialists have moreover always expressed similar opinions using similar phraseology and terminology. This is obvious.  This however does not constitute plagiarism where there is a verbatim false attribution of authorship. While Jacob would refuse to  sue on the basis of 1 Corinthians Chapter 6 prohibiting such civil litigation, the vicious charge by Menelaws’ that Jacob is a ‘plagiarist’ is a badly manufactured libellous lie.
* Moriel never sought conflict with the Menelaws. We simply believe that Studio Scotland , legally registered as a commercial enterprise, is misrepresented as being a ministry, when it is in fact not Christian ‘ministry’, but is in the ‘ ministry business’.  When secular actors were paid handsomely for working on films such as  ‘The Daniel Project’ and ‘Daniel Connection’, while James Jacob Prasch and other Christians were told do it pro bono ‘For The Lord’ and ‘For The Gospel’ , only for the rights to such films to then be sold to the Hollywood, and to Communist China (who persecute Christians and who want  to prevent Christian films from being translated into Mandarin), is an unethical sham and a shame and a disgrace.  We were told those films were for Christ, not for the fallen world. For Menelaws to continue to sell these videos featuring Jacob Prasch while publicly excoriating him moreover, seems like financially driven religious hypocrisy on steroids. This is the very kind of reason James Jacob Prasch refused any further filming by Menelaws, (just as he quit digital TV due to money preachers).
* The other motivating factor was Menelaws’ attack on Moriel for our disassociation and refutation of David Nathan whom Menelaws promoted endlessly. Promotion of a supposedly saved Messianic Jew who teaches ‘God The Father is Not the Creator’, ‘The Blood of animals, (not the Blood of Christ) will cleanse from sin in the Millennial Kingdom’, ‘the Gospel is Not eternal’, and ‘we can pray God’s power into the cloth of a tie or jacket to knock people over for healing’ is their business, not ours. But to attack us for opposing it is something different. David Nathan grew up Jewish, Jacob Prasch did not. Jacob Prasch’s family is Jewish, David Nathan’s family is not. So what? But ancestry became the basis of the attacks by supporters of David Nathan’s heresy such as the Menelaws. Mr Nathan ‘being more Jewish than Jacob Prasch’ is not a defense of his heretical abberation theology. He is false teacher whom Menelaws promoted and defended for month after month, attacking Moriel for our stance opposing such apostate dogma that we were forced to renounce as he was a former team member.
* In pursuit of her vendetta, Menelaws has formed alliances with some very strange bed fellows. The video produced by ‘Blood Bought Ministries in South Africa’: “Is Chris Roebrough Fit to Be A Pastor’ ? is available for free viewing on Moriel TV & RTN TV. We suggest any who are interested view it. Rosebrough dresses in clergy vestments and prays before a statue of an un-crucified Christ. He teaches forgiveness of sin comes from confessing one’s sins to him, and that there is no antichrist, no 666, that the book of Revelation is only symbolic, and that both the Great Tribulation and the Millennial Reign of Christ have simultaneously existed since the First Century. The penchant Rosebrough and his producer (his son Joshua) have for fecal & four letter word vulgarity  is disgusting. In the estimation of many Christians, Menelaws’ mate Rosebrough seems to be crazy.
* Rosebrough claims to have a pie chart of Jacob Prasch’s personal DNA, which would require a miracle (since he has no blood or saliva sample). Contrary to his claims, when he harassed Jacob’s family, they told him nothing except to get lost. He correctly stated the original family name of James Jacob ‘Prasch’ was ‘Brasch’ and is a common Jewish name, but insisted that ‘Prasch’ were unrelated to the Jewish ‘Brasch’. The Jewish burial certificates of  ‘Prasch’ specifically stating the original name is ‘Brasch’ is on the Jewish burials website, and also copied in the article on the Moriel website “The Rant of The Desperate” (an actual James Jacob Prasch DNA report was offered to our supporters).
* Like Israel College of The  Bible/ One for Israel, Jews for Jesus, and others – Jacob Prasch teaches that ‘The Angel of The Lord’ in the Hebrew scriptures, whom Kaballistic Judaism calls “Metatron” is a Christophany – an Old Testament manifestation of Jesus. This has been asserted in evangelizing Jews for over a century, first by Oxford lecturer in Hebrew Rabbi Tzvi Nassi (who became a saved believer in Jesus). Caballists variously also mystically identify “The Angel of The Lord”  (or as they call Him ‘Metatron’) with Enoch, an Arch Angel, or the Messiah. Jacob Prasch explicitly warned on his video that Kaballah is occult; any elements of truth are combined with error. The only purpose of this teaching was Messianic Apologetics: to teach Christians how to evangelistically deal with rabbinic objections to The Trinity. The rabbinic mythologizing the scriptural ‘Angel of the Lord’ is false ; it is Jesus who is beyond, or at the centre of  the throne ( a term appearing in the Book if Revelation). Watching our original video proves beyond question the dishonesty of Menelaws in misrepresenting  our doctrinal position in the apologetic reference to Metatron, where Jacob repeatedly and specifically warns against the rabbinic mythology. Again, there is no euphemism for their plain calumny and bearing false witness.
* The other odd bed fellow whom Menelaws draws on in her attempts to paint Moriel as a cult, is the very controversial, and self admittedly non-Christian, ‘Catalyst’ organisation that has been involved in legal battles with the press. On its website, ‘Catalyst’ makes it clear that it holds ‘NO RELIGIOUS BELIEFS” and will represent persons of ANY FAITH (Hindu, Moslem, Mormon etc.), and of any sexual orientation (homosexual, lesbian, trans-gender etc.). Why Menelaws would resort to a non Christian organisation like this in order to attack Moriel is a question for Menelaws. Catalyst, promoted by Menelaws, made three claims. The first is that Moriel was under investigation, when in fact Moriel has never been investigated in any jurisdiction. Secondly, that Moriel & Jacob Prasch reap high profits from the sale of recorded material. Everyone of course knows that , unlike Menelaws & Studio Scotland who sell recorded material as merchandise, all Moriel recorded material is publicly available on-line without charge for free downloading (we also allow multiple other channels to post our material free of charge). It is rather Menelaws who sell recorded material. Moriel believes: “freely you received, feely shall you give”.Menelaws even sell recorded material of Jacob Prasch, calling him nefarious, yet openly making money from his name!
* The third claim is that Moriel is a cult. Moriel cannot be a cult because it simply has no members. Its team all attend other churches and affiliated churches are autonomous. Our statement of faith reflects 100% Conservative Evangelical orthodoxy.
* In the UK, Moriel is registered as a Charity. The audited accounts annually submitted to the Charities commission prove Jacob Prasch takes no UK salary and accepts no book royalties. In the USA, the charity laws are different than in the UK. There is no Charity Commission, but charitable organizations are non-profit corporations regulated by the IRS tax authorities like any other corporation. Under American law, book royalties are paid to the author, but can be donated back as a tax deduction. This however must be publicly declared, and it is (such can reach $150,000). In Britain there are ‘restricted funds’ (called ‘designated funds’ in the USA) . If a donation is received for India or Africa or a specific missionary, or team member (including Jacob Prasch), the money, by law, must go to where the donor requests. Team members can accept love gifts etc., but by the rules Moriel operates by, they may not solicit them. These distorted financial claims of profiteering by Menelaws are twisted. Moriel puts its audited accounts & financial records out for public viewing. Why won’t Menelaws disclose for how much they sold the rights of “Christian” films for to Hollywood, Communist (Christian persecuting) China, and Satan’s world? 
                                                                                                                      * * * * *
We regret having to reiterate this cumbersome folly again. Unfortunately, Menelaws is at it again. By God’s grace, we have had just slightly over a 300% increase of subscribers in the last thirty or thirty one months, plus a volumetric rise in RTN, other channels, websites, & Facebook pages carrying Moriel material. Our subscribers, old & new, mostly just ignore Menelaws (as they should). Should any newer subscribers like a response to this nonsense from Moriel, they now have it. 
Moriel has but one website (though there are non English language Moriel websites in Japanese , Dutch, & Danish etc.). We conclusively and categorically assure everyone, that we have nothing to do with Caio Michael, and we don’t know who he is. He certainly may speak for other people; but not for Moriel. Neither do any imagined death threats come from anyone connected to Moriel.  Such assertions are nothing short of deranged. No christian ministry could ever engage in such things.
Moriel is once more the target of sickeningly hostile, tragicomical fabrications from which The Lord Himself will defend us.


Amir Tsarfati – Cyber Bully – MTV

Copyright Violation is wrong. Filing complaints for legitimate violations is both ethical and appropriate. Lying however is not. To misrepresent a “FAIR USE’ citation of a clip as a Copyright Violation is both dishonest and despotic. To further claim that a video not even showing clips of the complainant (Amir Tsarfati) is a ‘Copyright Violation’, in order to suppress open, fair, and reasonable doctrinal disagreement or theological discussion – is nothing short of lying. Amir Tsarfati’s dishonest actions are shameful and unbecoming of someone claiming to be a saved believer in Yeshua. How can an Israeli professing to be a follower of his Messiah go to the secular world and make false accusations against fellow believers like this? This is done only to silence criticism of his teaching, which many believers who support Israel, including a number of Jewish believers, hold to be doctrinal errors. When the world behaves like this, that is the world. When believers behave like this, it is a disgrace to the Name and cause of Yeshua, bringing reproach upon His Gospel.

We ourselves normally agree with Amir Tsarfati’s political commentaries. His “teaching,” however, is in the view of many believers a mixture of truth and error warranting honest, scripturally based discussion. Amir Tsarfati is indeed a tour guide and an officer in the military reserves, and is in a position to produce such political and strategic commentaries as a believer. He does not however pastor a congregation in Israel, he is not a Messianic theologian, nor speak for the Messianic leadership in Israel. Amir Tsarfati’s ministry is primarily to the church in the diaspora. We publicly call upon Amir Tsarfati to repent and apologize to Dean Gibson and Sonia Azam.

The specific teaching of Amir Tsarfati challenged, concerned his false Christology that Yeshua is the Archangel Michael. When first accosted, he reacted by citing a Jehovah’s Witness cult false teaching, then Amir Tsarfati angrily blamed others as if he were a victim of something other than his own erroneous dogma. Now Amir files copyright violation claims where no violations exist. Regarding his second bogus copyright strike against the converted Moslem sister Sonia Azam, some of us even agree with Amir Tsarfati’s position on a Jewish antichrist. This however does not constitute a right to dishonestly sequester, by such utterly disingenuous means, material that reviews and dialogues about his proposition. The habitual belligerence exhibited by Amir Tsarfati in response to those in honest disagreement with him has now been replaced by a policy of demonstrable dishonesty.

2020 08 16 John Haller’s Prophecy Update “The Abraham Accords.”

While there are numerous events that have occurred during the past week that have prophetic significance, there is one that stands out from the confusion as key. There is the potential that the agreement between the United Arab Emirates and the Nation of Israel may be the modern “Archduke of Ferdinand” moment that could trigger a series of clashes predicted in Scripture between Israel and her allies. John explains in great detail the significance and the potential impact of this agreement in this week’s update entitled “The Abraham Accords.”



This very recent, timely and necessary article authored by Lynn & Sarah Lesley was not in any way commissioned by Moriel , RTN, or any adjuncts of such ,                           but is webposted by consent of Herescope. We do however commend its doctrinal, theological, and factual accracy and thank the authors for producing it.

To answer the questions about how and why seemingly godly men would follow after false prophetesses, here are our observations after our many decades in the trenches with the Lord. 
We have always considered the term “Jezebel” and the term “false prophetess” to be synonyms. The Scripture is clear that there are attributes of Jezebel in both the Old and New Testament that identify a false prophetess quite specifically. 
Over the years Lynn and I have counseled many Christians trying to repent of all of their previous occult involvements. We have observed that there is a fallible “soft spot” in the hearts of certain vulnerable Christian men who lean sympathetically towards a false prophetess, epitomized by the women called Jezebel in Scripture. Worse, there is a “fear of man” (or, should we say, “fear of woman”) that is also a fatal loophole in men who fall into abject submission when confronted by the nasty side of false prophetesses. Every man of God needs to be exhorted to stand firm against such women. They persecute (threaten, intimidate, bully, verbally or physically abuse, etc.) the true prophets of God, meaning those men who are teaching the Word and standing for Truth. Jezebel literally killed godly men in the Old Testament!
There is also the seductive side to a false prophetess. She preys upon the sensory and/or emotional weaknesses in men —  hooking them in where they have a “soft spot” for her. She massages their lusts — sexual, money, power, fame, etc. Or she makes them somehow dependent upon her, they feel that then “need” her or her machinations, or that they are somehow indebted unto her. She may even blackmail them. Or she may position them to “choose” between her and some godly woman (including possibly his wife!). She supplants the place of Christ in their hearts and minds with these clever methods. So if there is any weak spot in a man that has not been repented of? —  This is precisely where she seizes control to wield and manipulate them. This is psychic, it is occult, it is satanic, it is idolatry. She stabs into the heart and it is deadly. It is a tragedy when we see her operate in a marriage. And this is how she destroys a church and/or a ministry. 
We have observed that there is a darkness of vision that accompanies a false prophetess deception. Many men do not even realize they are under the spell of a false prophetess. We’ve known pastors who permitted an out-of-order heresy-prone woman to wreak havoc upon his congregation — either terrified to confront her, or wooed by her many elaborate ruses, or in a few cases, physically seduced by her. 
At its most basic level there is a psychological weakness we humans all have for those whom we love and respect. Sometimes we have great tolerance for the sinful errors of others close to us, hoping we can lead them back to Truth. Indeed, the Lord Himself says He gave the Jezebel in Thyatira (Rev. 2) “space to repent”  — therefore so must we. The Lord also gave those who committed adultery with her time and space to “repent of their deeds.” But, if there is no repentance, and when we find that we are actually having to justify our convivial relationship to the point of excusing flagrant transgressions or participating in her sins, heresies, errors and deceptions, then we are headed into deep trouble. And it behooves us to be continually on guard against any “desperately wicked” (Jer. 17:9) “soft spots” we may harbor in our hearts towards her that leave us vulnerable to her deceptions. 
There is a notable sign of our times regarding this “prophetess” danger which we should be aware of. It may apply to men prophets, too. Our longtime friend Jack Morlan, who repented radically and came out of the homosexual movement 40 years ago (he got married, had children, and is now a grandfather) claims that certain men may wield this same Jezebel-ish psychic/occult power over other men, particularly if they are prone to homosexual sins (either known or in the closet). He has warned us of men who acted like Jezebel both within and without the church. Godly men need to guard against this sort of man as well. 
As for women, and their weaknesses — the many who desire to emulate Jezebel — this is another tragic story. Women prophetess-wannabes exhibit both a seductive and a nasty side. Many of them are  trying to fill a void in their hearts — but not with Jesus Christ. They have left their first love, if they even ever held to Jesus Christ in the first place. These are women who crave power, fame, accolades, money, beauty, lust and sensuality on the path to emulating Jezebel. Often they come from broken homes or abusive background. There is an aspect of control as they look to build an empire, their own spiritual kingdom. Our heart grieves for them while they are lost in the depths of their depravity because only Jesus Christ can save them from their sins. 
We once attended a church where the chief elder’s wife visited the New Age bookstore once a month to learn about the latest “spirituality.” She was a prophetess-wannabe, hoping for TV type stardom. This undiscerning lady became deeply involved in Kundalini — she even attempted to lay hands on ladies’ chakra points at a church women’s retreat. Discerning women attempted to warn the pastor. But because her husband donated large monies to the church the minister was reluctant to confront her. The church quickly fell apart in a series of disasters.
Some false prophetesses come to Christ out of the occult. But if they never fully repented of their occult “spiritual gifts” they are tempted to use them in Christianity. They can then wield great power over others with these false gospel gifts.  It is far worse when a woman claims to be the voice of prophecy, or even the voice of God. At this point she’s become a full-blown dangerous false prophetess and people need to be warned of her dangers. The extent to which these women become public figures, acclaimed and renowned, sitting on platforms with or standing in the place of men, exhibiting their false gifts, poses a danger to the entire church at large. Can such a woman be saved? God gave space and time for the apparently high profile Jezebel and her followers to repent in Thyatira. But if no such repentance becomes evident — which should include not only a public repentance but an open renouncing of specific sins, errors, heresies, misleadings and false teachings — she should then be warned against publicly.
We will warn that there is a backlash to any Gospel dealings with Jezebel/false prophetesses. Just ask Elijah. Some of the most vicious persecution we have experienced in our Christian life has come from them or their minions. 
Lynn and Sarah Leslie


REVELATION 3 : 19 – 24

2 KINGS 9: 30 – 37

Promo – If I Be Lifted Up

Coming soon: What does “If I be Lifted up” mean? Jacob Prasch will discuss the meaning of this wonderful teaching from our Lord. Find out when Moriel releases their newest video. Moriel TV is active in the area of discernment withstanding the popular apostasy in the contemporary church that The Word of God warns would precede the return of Jesus. We remain firmly aligned to the conviction that contemporary events in The Middle East , Europe, and in the church make the present time in history different from other eras when people thought it was the last days. We affirm the belief that Jesus is coming again and prophecy of His return is radically being fulfilled increasingly.
