Jesus, Name Above All Names

I Remember

I remember as a young minister, I was told by some older Elders to just hold on, soon God would shake all the Oneness groups and the Bride would come forth. I was told basically to wait on the rise of prophets who would cry out. I waited.

I looked for a prophet from among the UPCI, none arose.
I looked for a prophet among the PAW, none arose.
I looked for a prophet among the AMF, now the ACI, none arose.
I looked for a prophet among the COOLJC, none arose.
I looked for a prophet among the ALJC, none arose.
I looked for a prophet among the PAJC, none arose.
I looked for a prophet among the WPF recently created, none arose.
I looked for a prophet among the Oneness homosexual churches, none arose.
I looked for the leaders of these groups to prophesy and none did.

I was told not to cry out because I would be rejected by all of them.

My old mentor Pastor Murray Burr once told me: there has no prophet risen from among them. And if one did they would scandalize his name and deny him. His friends would walk away from him because he would shame their backslidings. Ministers and pastors would say he was demon possessed (Beelzebub); crazy, and deceiving the people (same ploys used against Jesus).

I waited, with baited breath at conventions to hear a message that would start a spiritual revolution. But all I head was fancy text and motivational sermons. I observed more and more theater and entertainment. Big TV screens moved into the churches. And the services were more designed for hoot night than a dedication to the old paths. Yes, many were filled with the Holy Ghost and even baptized in Jesus name: but they were never perfected in Truth, Faith, Doctrine, Practice, Conduct, and Order. In fact when was the last time you hard those words from the pulpit?

So, I decided let me try the spirits. I began to write and publish the Truth on a variety of subjects. And sure to the words of Pastor Burr I was viciously attacked. And what shocked me was I had less than 10 preachers who came to my defense. Less than 10 out of the estimated 50,000 Oneness preachers now in pulpits around the world.

If you are waiting on some group to root out the evils of their backslidings, you will die and never see it. Why? Because Rome and all of her daughters are cursed with a curse. They cannot perfect themselves when they are filled with false doctrines, catholic traditions, Jewish fables, and their own man-made deceptions. If you die in these churches chances are you will be lost.

When UPCI churches allow Freemasons on their staffs, boards, and in their pulpits, you know something is not rotten in Denmark, it is rotten right where you give your tithes. But why should you care? You find it more necessary to hate those who speak out because they are strange words to your ears. You love the platitudes and the sermons. You see backsliding all around you. Even your children drifting away into worldliness, and you do not speak up. If you will not cry out for your own soul,doubtless you will cry out to save others.

I have a mission. It has cost me lots of friends. I did not choose this ministry. I was created, trained, and sent out to accomplish it. I am not a Pentecostal catholic. That troubles the most of you. I do not preach the party-line. I do not have your pedigree card. I am not subject to any of your hierarchies, I have rejected your mantras and little ecumenical oaths (not to contend etc., etc.,).

I realize I am not the smartest man on the block. I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and sometimes I am short a happy meal by one french fry. BUT I AM NOT LOST. I AM NOT A PENTECOSTAL CATHOLIC.

I am the voice I longed to hear.

And when I stepped out into the howling winds of false doctrine: the only voice I heard was my own.

Yes, some of you agree with me on some things. But you are not ready to come clean and become a voice with me. You hide behind clever words. No one really knows all that much about what you stand for or believe because YOU NEVER PUT IT IN PRINT.

The world is waiting on the manifestation of the Sons of God.
Are you one of them? Do you even care if you are? Will you submit yourself to Christ and really ask him to make you more and more like him? If you do not, enjoy your religion.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

Jesus is and always was the name of God from before the creation. Jesus in creation, Jesus in redemption, and Jesus in the regeneration. Please pass this revelation on to all Oneness people. It is time to stop the lies that it was the Father in creation (one God); the Son in redemption (another God); and the Holy Ghost in regeneration (another God): still has a trinity.

Only when we confess Jesus in Creation, Jesus in redemption, and Jesus in regeneration: do we have the TRUTH.

2Timothy 4:4 – And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth, and shall believe fables.

Acts 13:8 – But Elymas the sorcerer withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

1) In the days of Paul there was just one Church body that held the Truth. Yes, there were other scisms, other sects, that had broken away. But none of these had the Truth. I am talking about the Judaizers who wanted law-keeping to continue in the Church (Ebonites and others). I am talking about the Gnostics who had adopted the Philo system of allegorical interpretation (spiritualizing of scripture). I am talking about the Preterist who believed the resurrection was past. I am talking about the Dynamic Monarchians (who believed Jesus was not God, just a man). I am talking about those who had accepted the Babylonian mystic system of gematria, numerology, and secret image interpretations. If you know nothing of all of this, chances are a lot of what you believe is part of the skeleton of these apostasies. And you will fight to your death for them against the Truth. If your pastor has never taught on these matters he is either ignorant, not given to the Truth, or he is part of the “fables” people.

2) The greatest portion of the fables comes from Jewish rabbis and their adoption of the Babylonian mysteries and transferring them over and applying them to the Old Testament. To make this all possible these rabbis interpolated into the Babylonian Aramaic text secret skip codes, Aramaic words that make God (El) a plural (Elohom). They changed Mount Horeb to Mount Sinai. They changed Adonai (LORD) to YHVH (LORD). They changed El Shaddai into YAH. They changed Ehyeh into HAWAH. They changed Ben into BAR. And many other hundreds of changes they made. Until the Aramaic bible made in 300AD contains a mixture of Paleo-Hebrew words and names and Babylonian Aramaic words and names. So, 300 years before the Messianic generation would be born the fables, distortions, mysticism, and deceptions were already embedded into the minds of many thousands of Jewish people. These had not only already turned the minds of the people away from the Truth, they were already believers in the fables.

3) When Jesus came it is REMARKABLE that he totally rejected 100% all of the Babylonian Aramaic deceptions. His complete use of the word TRUTH was in opposition to these Jewish perversions. Until we know this we will not know what the real meaning is behind the word TRUTH as Jesus meant it and taught it. None of his teachings or those of the Apostles had any Babylonian fables mixed into them. This information is not taught in 99% of Oneness Apostolic churches. Why? Because they do not even have all of Catholicism removed from their practices, doctrine, and faith. If they cannot be free of these falsehoods why would they care about Jewish ones? The fact is, most of Jewish fables are passed down to us via the Catholic church. Almost all of our knowledge base comes to us from books, commentaries, dictionaries, lexicons, and other books directly from Rome and its agents. Since around 1960 this has shifted over to now going directly to rabbi Jewish sources and picking up all manner of ideas, interpretations, and information. We no longer use the New Testament and the teaching of the Apostles to filter all of this out. We are taught that we are getting closer to God if we believe what the rabbis tell us. One Apostolic pastor in California reported he had a rabbi friend who told him this and that about the tetragrammaton. Wow, not a single attempt to check this out through the filter. What was he teaching in Germany? He was teaching fables that came to him from some rabbi. Since when did Jesus or the Apostles EVER go to a rabbi for information about God or the TRUTH?

Many Apostolics now have the spirit of Elymas the sorcerer. They want to turn people from the TRUTH. One such enemy of mine in Ireland told one of my fellow associate Ministers this:

“I am against Bishop Reckart because I do not want him to succeed. I believe he is a false prophet because he tells people to send him tithes. He says he is a general in the army of God and should get a general’s pay packet. He says halleluyah is false. Yah is the true God. So since “alleluia” is in all the bibles in Revelation 19, it is a praise to Jesus.”

This is just one of many hundreds of people attempting to turn people from the TRUTH to their fables, the fables of the Catholic church, or the fables of the rabbis.

Let me say this clearly: if you never were in the TRUTH how would you know what the TRUTH is? By what intelligence would you be able to judge TRUTH? Fact is, you could only judge it from the categories of your ignorance. And if the darkness in you is what you call light, how great is your darkness?

I can say this: if Jesus Christ has not called you out of darkness into the light, then it’s because he has not seen in you a heart desiring to know and follow the TRUTH. Some of you think Acts 2:38 and Oneness is all the Truth there is while you keep on in your Catholic traditions and Jewish fables. Do you really believe you are already perfected in Christ when you have stuff (beliefs) in you that Jesus and the Apostles NEVER had?

Today as I got up from my bed and began to meditate unto Jesus my King and my Lord, I was so burdened with the above two scriptures. So many being deceived and turned from the true Apostolic Church found in the New Testament, UNTO FABLES.

If you can be turned, blame your self . You never did get to that place in your life where the road was just the narrow way. You have already been turned aside and no longer have the desire to follow the footprints of Jesus and the Apostles.

Fall down on your knees. Break open the fallow ground. Cry unto the Lord God Jesus. Ask him to deliver you from fables. When you get up and start all over to know the TRUTH sort out all the lies and no more be part dark.

My Baptism

pastor-reckart-baptismI remember the day of my baptism. It was a sunday. My dad would not allow me to go to church with my mom that sunday. So he kept me home. My mom and he had a big argument. I was now 12 and she said I could choose my baptism . My dad said no, he would choose not only when but by whom. At that time he ahd the pastor had a falling out about him mistreating my mom. So my dad had quit church saying the pastor had no right to meddle in his family matters. My mom said she asked the pastor to help her because he had been abusing her physically which I saw several times. And would always go off and cry..

But on this day I was a prisoner.

We were down at the river and I was in the boat to go across. My dad grabbed my hand and pulled me from the boat. I fell into the water and was all wet. My mom begged him to let me go to be baptized and he refused. He even threatened to throw me into the river. At that age I could not swim. I was crying and afraid. My mom then said ok. Take him back home.

I was taken back home. But my heart was going to be baptized. After I went back home with my dad, he laid down and went to sleep. I opened the door. Ran as fast as I could to the boat dock. And the boat owner took me across. I ran nearly all the way to the church down the railroad tracks. When I arrived my age was in sunday school class so my mom did not see me. We had a one room church with curtains that divided it into four parts. When my class was over (about half hour), they pulled the curtain back and I went to my mom.

She asked me how I got there. I told her I ran away.

She had already talked to the pastor. The pastor saw me and came and asked me if I wanted to be baptized in Jesus name. I told him yes. I was 12 years old like Jesus was and I wanted to live for God. So he told me ok.

After service they lifted up the platform which was made of wood and under it was the baptistry. It was in February and the water was so cold it nearly took my breath away. But on that sunday I accepted Jesus as my God. I accepted Jesus name as the name of salvation. I had repented of my sins. I wanted to be filled with the Holy Ghost. So I was:


This past February 2017 was my baptismal anniversary.

Thought some of you should know that all of my life has not been easy or a bed of roses. I have sacrificed all of my life to be faithful to the holiness Apostolic message. I am nearing the end of my race. I will not quit until it is over.
