July/August/September 2020 Heritage Highlight

“Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that when the world is made new and the Son of Man sits upon his glorious throne, you who have been my followers will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.  And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life.  But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then.    Matthew 19:28-30 (NLT)

Important update for MorningStar Fellowship Church

“Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division” —Jesus (Luke 12:51).

Jesus and His apostles spoke often of the need for unity, so why would He say this? Because true unity is usually elusive until divisions illuminate the real and important issues.

In high school, I marveled at how two people would become antagonists, which would usually lead to a fight, and then after the fight, they would become friends! In history we see this same thing happening with nations and to competing parties within nations. Divisions often lead to a fight, and then fights lead to unity. One would think there has to be a better way, but we don’t seem to have found it yet.

On the 22nd, MorningStar Ministries and Antioch International Church held a joint Prayer Meeting in the main sanctuary of MorningStar at 7:00 pm.  Many people came out to pray together.  Because of the critical times we are living in, it was decided to hold another joint prayer meeting on July 29th at Antioch Int’l.  Both churches came together to pray for America, the President, the U.S. Congress, and all the state and local leaders.



NEW:  Chatty Cathy’s Café/Coffee Shop was recently relocated from the Trolley on Main Street in the Heritage Grand Hotel to the old PTL Registration building.

About Chatty Cathy’s Cafe:

Opening New Year’s Eve 2019, Chatty Cathy’s Cafe proudly served over 3000 guests at the Historic Main Street Trolley located inside the Heritage Conference Center.

During the summer of 2019, we closed operations in the trolley to focus all our attention on our new location, 2004 Cause Way Lane, Fort Mill. It’s a beautiful ranch-style house (pictured) nestled in the nearby neighborhood just a short walk across the parking lot from Heritage.

This vibrant coffeehouse will be a friendly community gathering place where people will continue to enjoy the highest quality organic coffee and food as their own special beverage is handcrafted by one of our welcoming baristas. Local artists & musicians will also be featured.

It was recently discovered that this building is in need of some critical restoration work. This expense was unexpected so we have launched a “Go Fund Me” campaign. Come join in the excitement by participating in our Go Fund Me or Silver Talents fundraiser, and help launch Chatty Cathy’s Cafe into their new home.

For more information about Chatty Cathy’s check out their website at: https://www.chattycathyscafe.com or their Facebook page at:https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Coffee-Shop/Chatty-Cathys-Cafe-298191124433521/

Below is part of the book review of Rabbi Cahn’s new book by Amazon Books:

New Release From five-time New York Times Best Selling Author Jonathan Cahn!

In 2012 Jonathan Cahn caused a worldwide sensation with the release of his first book and massive bestseller, The Harbinger. It has been hailed as “stunning,” “prophetic,” “mind-blowing,” and “astonishing.” Cahn followed it with his bestsellers The Mystery of the Shemitah, The Book of Mysteries, The Paradigm, and The Oracle. But he has always held off on writing a sequel to The Harbinger, believing it was not yet the time. But now is the time.

With the release of The Harbinger II, Cahn will reveal what could not be revealed up until now, including the mysteries that couldn’t be put into The Harbinger—the mysteries and prophetic harbingers that have manifested since the book came out—and the mysteries of what is yet to come. The Harbinger II will take the mystery to new dimensions and heights of revelation.

And there will be no escape. But you aren’t in the dark about these things, dear brothers and sisters, and you won’t be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief.  For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night.  1 Thessalonians 5:2-5 (NLT)

America is now being presented with some of its greatest opportunities as it faces some of its greatest crises. It is our history and heritage to turn challenges into the victories. The victories come from facing the greatest challenges. Just as warriors run to the sound of battle, not away from it, patriots run to the crises that threaten their country, not away from them. The future will belong to those with that initiative.

The crises now growing in our land are a serious threat to our continuing existence as a Republic, but they are also exactly what can wake us up to do what must be done to see our Republic fully restored to its Constitutional moorings. They are a chance to see and dispense with the enemies of our liberty that would impose their tyranny upon us. Now we just need to understand how to seize this opportunity.

But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance.  You know how much persecution and suffering I have endured. You know all about how I was persecuted in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra—but the Lord rescued me from all of it.  Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.  But evil people and imposters will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.  2 Timothy 3:10-13 (NLT)

Because of the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, most of the churches on the grounds remained closed.  Some have gone to web-streaming their services.

Pastor Peter wrote a letter to his congregation explaining his decision to continue the main church services.

Jim Bakker’s Morningside Ministries in Blue Eye, Missouri

Through SKYPE, Steve Strang, President and CEO of Charisma Media was a special guest on the Jim Bakker Show that aired on 5/1/20.  Steve Strang wrote an Op Editorial in Charisma Magazine because he sincerely wanted to “set the record straight,” on the recent attack against Jim Bakker.

“Why I Wrote the OP ED” by Stephen Strang – This program aired on the Jim Bakker Show on May 1st.  The below link will give you a brief understanding why he wrote this article:

“Why I Believe Jim Bakker Is Being Unfairly Attacked Online”

Jim Bakker (Facebook/The Jim Bakker Show)

Stephen Strang: Why I Believe Jim Bakker Is Being Unfairly Attacked Online

Jim Bakker is no stranger to controversy. He went to prison in the late 1980s and received a 45-year sentence. He could have spent the rest of his life there if it weren’t for what I consider a miracle. Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, whom I highly respect, did something unexpected. He defended Jim pro bono (free) because he believed Jim’s sentence by a biased judge was an injustice, and the courts agreed. Jim was released for time served in 1994 after spending almost five years in prison. After losing everything, including his wife and ministry, he has started over and built a successful ministry in Missouri.

Now, Bakker is in the news again. As I’ll explain in more detail, he offered a “Silver Solution” supplement on his The Jim Bakker Show. The silver solution is known to help fight some viruses. Dr. Sherrill Sellman, a board-certified integrative naturopathic doctor, appeared on his show Feb.12 and clearly said it had not been tested for COVID-19, but it might help your immune system fight viruses. The show was taped Feb. 5, less than a week after President Donald Trump issued the travel ban from China and long before we really knew much about this strange new coronavirus.

In hindsight, Jim was unwise to even mention COVID-19 with any product. But his enemies twisted his message to say he was “selling a cure.” He wasn’t. But the spin in the fake news media’s coverage that followed is that Bakker went to jail for bilking people, and now he’s at it again. In my opinion, that’s a lie, and I want to do my part to set the record straight. In fact, you can watch the clip for yourself here (the conversation about the Silver Solution Starter Kit starts at the 42-minute mark).

I was trained as a secular journalist at the University of Florida and I began my career at the Orlando Sentinel. But I’ve spent most of my career covering the charismatic Christian community. I remember covering Jim when he was just coming into prominence in the late 1970s. I watched him build Heritage USA, and I visited there several times—once in 1983 to do an in-depth interview for Charisma magazine on Jim and his huge vision. He was controversial back then—mostly due to his flamboyant style and partly over how fast he was growing. As a result, some people considered him somewhat arrogant. I remember observing back then that there was a “childlike” purity in his love for the Lord and for people. But there was also a certain “childishness” (self-centeredness, naivety) that seemed to make some people not like him.

I was also at Heritage USA with my family not long before the Charlotte Observer broke a big “expose” that Bakker had a fling with a secretary. In Christian circles, that’s scandalous. The backlash was enormous and Bakker resigned.

Then a tragic set of circumstances created a downward spiral. Bakker’s PTL ministry began to unravel and he ended up going to jail. History will show there were people out to get him. There were all the elements of a scandal that the press loved—lots of money in the ministry, an extramarital fling, a flamboyant religious experience and loyal followers (who some of the “elites” of the day looked down on as deplorables long before Hillary Clinton made the word popular).

So what did Bakker do that landed him in prison? As an incentive to donate, he told his partners they could stay free in the magnificent hotel his ministry built at Heritage USA. Some prosecutors said that if the partners all came at one time, PTL couldn’t fulfill its promise, and somehow that was fraud! Well, airlines routinely overbook, and furthermore, PTL didn’t turn away partners for being overbooked because they never all showed up at the same time. That was his offense. He did not bilk millions of dollars as some people online are saying.

Bakker did raise millions of dollars, but it was to spread the gospel via television and to build a huge media center and a facility near Charlotte, North Carolina, for his partners to gather for camp meetings, concerts, religious services, and other events. (As a child I used to attend Pentecostal camp meetings with my parents in cheap, rundown facilities. Bakker provided a really nice setting to gather to hear preaching, sing, and enjoy fellowship with other believers.)

With the millions he raised, Bakker also paid salaries, bought air time and, over the years, gave millions of dollars to missions. I know this to be true. He was generous with my late father-in-law, who was a missionary to the Philippines.

I believe Bakker was targeted by people who didn’t like what he was doing, and when he resigned over his “fling,” they found some things they felt they could prosecute. When I reported on it at the time, I found Bakker to have done things I felt were wrong yet pretty trivial—but not bad enough to send him to prison! The courts freed him for time served. Since then, Bakker has owned up to whatever he did wrong, a lot of which was a lack of wisdom on decisions he made. He even wrote a book, I Was Wrong. (I read every word, and you can’t read it without believing that Jim Bakker, for all his mistakes, is sincere and his repentance was heart-felt.)

What Jim Bakker went through would have destroyed most people. Yet he did something I admire: He started over and has built a new ministry called Morningside in Missouri with his wife, Lori Bakker. He has learned from his mistakes and, instead of relying just on donations to fund his ministry, he supports it by selling products—mostly books and products he believes in, including health supplements. I wrote about his restoration in a cover story for Charisma, which you can read here.

One such product is the “Silver Solution,” which he has offered for the past 10 years. I’ve used it myself, because I use products I believe will help my immune system. It was this product (which had not been controversial until now) that stirred up this new media firestorm. You can see the video for yourself. Bakker and his guest, Dr. Sherrill Sellman, talked about the health benefits, but clearly said it had not been tested for COVID-19.

The implication was if you didn’t know what to do to guard yourself from this dangerous new virus (and no one at the time knew), this solution might help. That’s all. He never said it was a cure. But the attorney general of Missouri, responding to complaints, issued a cease-and-desist order with which Bakker has complied. He even refunded money to those who bought the product.

When I heard about this, I looked up the tape (I missed that program) and saw he was being unfairly criticized. I also saw the distortions in the media of his past wrongdoings when reporting this newest controversy. Some even said he went to prison for rape. He did not. It was a one-time extramarital fling—there was never a charge of rape. But see how things spin out of control, especially when people don’t seem to care to know the truth? I believe the truth needs to be told. Jim Bakker is a good man who has spent a lifetime trying to help people and preach the gospel and support his ministry.

When this story broke, I kept expecting Bakker’s ministry to issue a press release to tell his side—especially after I saw the actual program. I knew from years ago what really happened and that Jim is not the ogre his critics portray him as. So I finally called him because of the years I’ve come to consider him a friend. He told me in hindsight he shouldn’t have mentioned COVID-19. He obeyed the cease-and-desist order, and you can’t even buy the product from him now. He’s offered to refund money to any partners who ask for it. But he’s basically a humble man and doesn’t want to defend himself. So I decided to speak up on his behalf.

The Jim Bakker I know loves people. He has spent a long time helping people, spreading the gospel, and ministering to those who need to know Jesus and the power of His love. Some of his critics don’t understand his Pentecostal fervor. They believe our theology of speaking in tongues or believing God still speaks is wrong. That’s their right as Americans. (I believe they are wrong too.) Maybe they don’t like the Pentecostal worship style of raising hands or speaking in tongues. But is that any reason to destroy Bakker or other ministries that believe like him?

Like the coronavirus pandemic, this controversy will be over someday. When people know the facts, I believe Bakker’s name will be cleared. Then he can get back to preaching the gospel and doing what he believes God has called him to do. That may not satisfy his critics. They didn’t like him before—or other ministries like his—and they won’t like him after this pandemic is in the history books. But Jim doesn’t answer to his critics. They are not his jury or judge. There is a judge Jim will stand before one day—just as every person on earth will.

My brother Paul is a charismatic music minister in Kentucky. If someone attacked him, I’d stand with him because he’s my brother! Jim Bakker is my Christian brother, so how can I do less? I wrote this to share my perspective—and the facts—hoping it makes sense and people will see Jim and what happened as I do.

MorningStar Towers update:
On the 12th, Eric Kinsinger, moderator of the Tear Down the MorningStar Tower Facebook page posted the following:

Tear Down the Morningstar Tower

Today is the 10 year anniversary of this group’s battle against the tower of terror that has been left here due to the fraud from Jim Bakker and the failed PTL. Morningstar Ministries now owns this building with a purchase agreement back in 2004 with this intent to tear the tower down but they have failed to follow through this action. If you read through this page you can follow the court events and county council meetings. Morningstar has now claimed several different lawsuits and other items to delay what we hope will happen.

Today there are new signs to show we are still here fighting to tear the tower down and are not going anywhere. Hopefully, some of you in the Charlotte area will see them along with Morningstar members and upper management.

Note: This sign is on I-77 south-bound by exit 90.

“If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back. But if you are unsuccessful, take one or two others with you and go back again, so that everything you say may be confirmed by two or three witnesses. If the person still refuses to listen, take your case to the church. Then if he or she won’t accept the church’s decision, treat that person as a pagan or a corrupt tax collector.”  Matthew 18:15-17 (NLT)

To start off 2020 Rick Joyner posted on MorningStar’s website a new series, “They Changed the World.”  This Word for the Week is the “American Revolution” and “Freedom.”

They Changed the World
By Rick Joyner
What kind of event could so change the trajectory of civilization that more advances would occur in just one hundred years after it than in the previous six thousand?

For the six thousand years of recorded history before this event, the basic elements of life for mankind did not essentially change. Food was gathered the same way, shelter was built the same way, and the pace of travel was limited to that of a horse. Before this event, the food needed to sustain the population required 90% of the people to be engaged in food production. Now it only takes about 5%. The speed of travel went from the speed of a horse to that of jets and rockets. What was it that became such a tipping point for civilization?

The American Revolution

Understanding how this revolution became the point around which the nations would make such radical changes is crucial for understanding the times we are in and the direction we are going. The basic answer to how this political revolution sparked a revolution in virtually all of life can be summed up in one word—freedom.

Jim Bakker’s New Year’s Eve Celebration – The Next 31 Things: Part 1
Click here or on the image below.

Emphasizing the Bible verse in Amos Chapter 3 verse 7 that says;
Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets. (NLT),  Pastor Jim began his message with the understanding that if he did not deliver it to the people, he will be responsible and their blood will be on his hands.

So sobering were his words that he hesitated to speak about what he was shown.  Yet,  he knew from Ezekiel 33:6 KJV, “But if the watchman sees the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword comes, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”

One of the first things Jim Bakker spoke about was how the church needs to get over its anger with one another.  He warned of more earthquakes, water & food shortages, and  judgment, especially in places that mock God.

Speaking for over two hours he prophesied many things God showed him that lay ahead, and some of them were beyond belief.  All the shows can be seen on the Video on Demand section of the Jim Bakker Show at: www.jimbakkershow.com

At Jim Bakker’s 80th birthday celebration, he was given a special coin commemorating his achievements in bringing the Gospel to the world through decades of pioneering Christian Television.  He impacted the world through Christian TV with starting worldwide networks including The 700 Club, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), PTL Satellite Network and the new PTL Television Network, all of which have brought millions of souls to the saving knowledge of Jesus.

These shows can be seen in their entirety on Jim Bakker’s website.  Click link to watch the first one at:

On the 20th, AGAINST ALL ODDS, during the airing of the Jim Bakker Show, the contract for the new Voice of the Prophets Network was signed.  This new network will provide 24-hour-a-day live broadcasting from Morningside Ministries in Blue Eye, Missouri.  Because of his strong belief that we are living in the times Jesus spoke about just before His return, Pastor Jim has worked tirelessly to bring this network to life.  On this memorable day, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame was the guest and gave his powerful personal testimony how he came from a world of drugs to the saving power of Jesus Christ, who then gave him the idea for the pillow he produces.  In his new book “What Are the Odds”, he tells the story of his miraculous transformation.

The book is now available at: https://www.mypillow.com/mikelindellbook; and can also be purchased through the Jim Bakker Show at: www.jimbakkershow.com.

Mike Lindell’s major success with My Pillow has given him the ability to help many ministries including giving $l million to help complete the 2019 motion picture “Unplanned.”  He is also donating to Pastor Jim Bakker’s ministry to help more people be transformed by the Gospel.

Because of his battles with drugs, Mike Lindell is in the process of creating the Lindell Recovery Network for Addiction.  He intends to build several treatment centers around the country to help those in bondage to drug addiction.

Jesus replied, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and saying, ‘The time has come!’ But don’t believe them. And when you hear of wars and insurrections, don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place first, but the end won’t follow immediately.”  Then he added, “Nation will go to war against nation and kingdom against kingdom.  There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and plagues in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs from heaven.” Luke 21:8-12

~March~

During the month, the Coronavirus suddenly took over the worldwide news as we learned that this deadly virus is killing thousands of people around the world in a record amount of time.  The virus is reported to have originated in China.  Sudden and deadly, this new pandemic has no vaccine to combat its aggressive killing capability.

After only a few weeks America came to a virtual standstill as tens of thousands of schools, businesses, restaurants, and churches stopped their normal operations.   Churches around the country are going to web-streaming their services or have canceled them altogether. Major U.S. cities are shutting down except for essential services and asking their people to stay home.

Global Coronavirus Pandemic;  Because of the worldwide outbreak of this severe novel virus we are asking people to stay in an attitude of prayer until it passes over. 

Psalm 91:1 – 16 (NLT)

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers.  He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.  Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.

If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.  When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.  I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
