“Consecrated” Or EMASCULATED??

The video above is an excerpt of a bishop’s “consecration” service which took place at Great Faith International Ministries located in Detroit, Michigan.

In the video, “bishop” Wayne T. Jackson [founder of Great Faith International Ministries] commanded 2 men to get on their knees. After they immediately fell to their knees in unthinking subservience, Jackson said “You gotta be buried. You gotta die. . . so Christ can live in you. Be prepared for burial.” Then with the wave of his hand [motioning them to lay down], they laid down prostrate before Jackson with their faces down.

2 assistants then stepped forward and totally covered both men with white sheets. Then Jackson crouched down at the feet of the first man being “consecrated” [Junaldo O. Lee, ‘pastor’ of Jackson’s satellite ‘church’ in Atlanta, GA] and grabbed Lee’s ankles holding onto them tightly while he pretended to pray.

Jackson then stood to his feet, threw a red cape over Lee, and suddenly threw himself upon Lee with his body fully laying on top of Lee’s. Keeping in mind that Jackson’s groin area is right on top of Lee’s backside, Jackson begins to shake, tremble, and contort his face while pretending to cry on top of another grown man. He then performed the same ritual on the second man laying prostrate on the ground.

To my absolute horror and disgust, no one stood up and objected to this blatant act of idolatry and emasculation disguised as an act of “consecration”. But rather, members of the congregation jumped to their feet, clapped, and shouted accolades of praise while the choir sang even louder “I give myself awaaaaay!”

Where Is Any Of This In Scripture?

The Scriptures command us to “test all things” (1 Thessalonians 5:21), “test the spirits” (1 John 4:1), and know a tree by its fruit (Matthew 7:15-20). And we test all things by the word of God and the Spirit of God — not by our feelings/emotions, religious traditions, nor blindly accept everything that is said and done in church “because the bishop is a true man of God, therefore everything that he does is of God.” A gullible, naive, assumptive, undiscerning, blind devotee mentality leads to more deception, more bondage, and in the end — being given over to a strong delusion. Therefore it is imperative that we use discernment and carefully scrutinize all things by God’s word and God’s Spirit.

The obvious problem with this “consecration” service is that none of the rituals can be found in Scripture. There are a plethora of examples in God’s word of consecration protocols and practices. Yet nowhere in Scripture do we see Moses, Aaron, the prophets, Jesus, the apostles, or anyone else consecrating someone into ministry in such an inappropriate and perverted fashion.

Not only are none of the rituals from the video found in Scripture, but there is nothing in Scripture that can be stretched to justify the gross act of a grown man mounting other men and writhing on top of them.

Multiple Believers have asked Wayne T. Jackson and members of Great Faith International Ministries for Scriptural support, and in response Jackson brushed off correction and concern from the body of Christ with the wave of a hand. Read his high-minded flippant reply “I just want to say thank you for all your feedback on my page. It is really interesting that some people can take a video such as this so out of context. I am not here on Facebook or anywhere else to debate the Word or to debate with man/woman. The Word does state “You will know them by their fruits Matthew 7:16.. This is absolutely demonic and a waste of time for us to be engaged in a debate in this. God bless!!”

Apparently Jackson and his devotees think it’s “demonic” and a “waste of time” to use discernment, request Scriptural support, and correct and rebuke that which contradicts the truth of God. And who asked him to “debate” anything? If the word of God TRULY supported what he did at that desecration service, then there would be no debate, because he could silence all of us by simply presenting the word of God IN-CONTEXT. But since WE know, and HE knows, that the word of God does not support him mounting grown men and embracing them on the ground — he plays the “attacked/persecuted victim” role and hides behind the worn-out cliche that he “doesn’t debate the word.”

Jackson claimed that the rituals symbolized dying to self and being buried with Christ, so that He can live in us. However, that’s a lie that he used to justify his ungodly behavior. The truth is that God has ALREADY given us the ceremony of water baptism to symbolize our old man being put to death, buried, and the new man being resurrected to life in Christ:

“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)

For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.” (Colossians 2:12)

But What About 2 Kings 4:32?

Members of GFIM have visited this blog attempting to justify Jackson’s bizarre behavior with 2 Kings 4:32.

However, in 2 Kings 4:32 Elisha laid on a DEAD boy [the boy was FACE UP by the way] and the boy came back to life. Yet at the “consecration” service, no one was DEAD and no one was healed or resurrected. So there is NO analogy, comparison, or parallel between 2 Kings 4:32 and Jackson’s behavior at the “consecration” service.

The Scriptures already give us specific instructions on how to appoint men of God as elders. It says to pray for them, prophesy over them to stir up the gift(s) within them, and to LAY HANDS upon them [see 1 Timothy 4:14 and 2 Timothy 1:6], NOT tell them to get on their knees and lay prostrate, grab their ankles, and lay one’s BODY upon their backside. None of this can be found in Scripture in the context of consecrating and appointing an elder.

Men Covering Other Men Violates The Word of God

I find it very significant that the ritual involved men covering other men [both figuratively and literally].

Much of this covering nonsense in churchianity today stems from idolatry [leader-worship], manipulation, ignorance of Scripture, and men lusting after affirmation, approval, and validation from other men.

However, the word of God is clear that GOD is our spiritual covering and that Jesus is the Head of every man. Therefore, it is a sin and a violation of God’s word for men to spiritually-cover other men.

“And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him; and THE LORD SHALL COVER HIM all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.” (Deuteronomy 33:12)

“I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the COVER of thy wings. Selah.” (Psalm 61:4)

He [GOD] SHALL COVER THEE with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” (Psalm 91:4)

“He [GOD] spread a cloud for a COVERING; and fire to give light in the night.” (Psalm 105:39)

Here is what God said when the children of Israel sought covering from men: “Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and THAT COVER WITH A COVERING, but NOT OF MY SPIRIT, that they may add SIN TO SIN:” (Isaiah 30:1) 

It is rebellion and a sin in the eyes of God to seek covering from men. Also see the following passage which states that Christ is the Head of every man, and that a man should not cover his head: “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. A man dishonors his head if he covers his head while praying or prophesying. For a man indeed ought not cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.” (1 Corinthians 11:3-4, 7)

This passage is not merely about physical head coverings, but about spiritual covering and the order of headship in God’s Kingdom. The Father is the Head of Christ and Christ is the Head of every man. . . and a man dishonors his head if he covers his head with something else while ministering, but this is exactly what happened in the rituals. The outward act of submitting themselves to being covered by white sheets, a red bishop’s cape, and the body of Wayne T. Jackson — represented their inner lust to seek spiritual covering, headship, affirmation, and validation from another man. They allowed themselves to be covered on the outside by men, because they lusted on the inside for covering from men.

By covering themselves with something or someone else rather, it dishonored their TRUE HEAD who is Jesus Christ. This is unholy and unseemly behavior for a man, as it violates God’s Headship order and usurps the spiritual covering that He alone provides.

Were These Men “Consecrated” Or EMASCULATED?

Emasculate means “to castrate, to remove the testicles of, to deprive of strength or vigor, to weaken, effeminate, to deprive of effectiveness.” 

The gentlemen in the video were most definitely not consecrated by any Scriptural definition. They were spiritually-neutered. Subjecting yourself [as a man] to a perverse ungodly act with another man is emasculating. It deprives you of your strength, vigor, and effectiveness as a man of God. And as long as you’re emasculated and refuse to MAN UP, you cannot fully stand up as a man of God for holiness and against sin, because something in you is subservient to the devil and will keep you in a state of compromise.

The True Faith and the True Gospel of Jesus Christ develop real men — men who have a spiritual backbone to stand up for Jesus Christ, righteousness, faith, truth, justice, integrity, grace and mercy. Not just when it’s convenient or when it will make one look like the hero, but also when it’s inconvenient, uncomfortable, and brings persecution and slander from those who are deceived.

Jesus is the perfect example of a real Man. He was totally submitted to the Father, and because of His submission to the Father, He refused to submit to wicked leaders and seek their approval and affirmation. He knew that His ministry came from our Father in heaven, so He felt no need to cower down to the scribes and Pharisees so that they could validate his ministry. They could not add anything to who He was, and He let them know it in a godly assertive manner: Your approval means nothing to me, because I know you don’t have God’s love within you. For I have come to you in my Father’s name, and you have rejected me. Yet if others come in their own name, you gladly welcome them. No wonder you can’t believe! For you gladly honor each other, but you don’t care about the honor that comes from the one who alone is God.” (John 5:41-44)

What an awesome example of manliness in our Savior. But where were any of these godly attributes during the “consecration” service? They were totally absent. Instead of seeing real men of God with spiritual fortitude, we saw spiritually-castrated religious weeping willows without a robust identity in Jesus Christ, totally subservient and dominated by another man gyrating against their backside.
It is abundantly clear to me that real men are not allowed at Great Faith International Ministries, because JESUS is not allowed. Wayne T. Jackson has zero tolerance for godly men in his presence because they would hold him accountable, refuse to buckle under pressure, and be unaffected by his religious emotional manipulation. So so he surrounds himself with silly women and silly women IN DRAG [effeminized men] who fall to their knees and lay prostrate before him.
Many black pastors complain about the lack of men in their ‘churches’ — yet this is one of the main reasons why. The only ‘men’ who will accommodate, celebrate, and acquiesce to ungodly sissified leadership are silly women and ungodly sissified men who are more concerned with climbing the corporate ladder in churchianity and impressing “the manna god.” But real men who have been consecrated by Jesus Christ and seek the honor that comes from the only God will not subject themselves and their families to such perverse spiritual mutilation. They will stand firmly against it.

  2. What you describe in this video sounds more like an initiation ceremony associated with the occult. What it certainly is not is a consecration service. The apostacy gets worse and worse because the tares have overtaken the wheat.

  3. It’s so wierd to see christians acting like that. Trying to add to God’s word with rituals and man made doctrines because man thinks God needs his help. It’s completey ridiculous to do such nonsense.

    • God is the spiritual covering of Believers — individually and collectively. No man, and I mean NO MAN can “spiritually cover” an entire congregation of Believers. There are many articles online exposing the “covering lie.”

  4. To the writer of this article. I fully understand what you are conveying to those of you who viewed this and I thank you for sharing your opinion and using scriptural evidence not to bash the bishop about the process he used in ordaining these ministers and like you he should have used scriptures when he was publicly ordaining these ministers to the world which might have caused confusion to those who are not in the body of Christ however God is not the author of confusion. The bishop ment it for good to show how to die to Christ but in the wrong way. I understood what he was trying to convey but looking at it with the natural eyes it was disturbing. Bishop Jackson it would be in the best interest of your church to back up your actions with scripture. I’m sorry how the world percivied your ordination. Just make sure you are hearing from God. God bless.

    • Pat, I don’t know what god you are hearing from but this is not of God. You can not say the bishop meant good because you do not know his heart. Many people appear godly but God will not allow this. This is not the way. Would it be okay if he did it to a woman?

  5. It’s sad the excuses one will make to justify error..when one must repent and admit they were wrong…That is why all these strange doctrines of demons keep creeping into the church..you see error point it out and don’t be ashamed neither afraid….if it aint sound teaching then it aint of God .man can’t make his own rules for they have already been laid and we must follow..

  6. wow … I just saw that video and if made me sick to my stomach… I have been in ministry for close to 20 years and I have never seen anything like this.. I used to say nothings surprises me anymore… well this just did… we need to continue to pray for the spirit of error and the Antichrist spirit to be kicked out of the church.. God help us all

  7. @ Study

    2Kings 4:32 States that Elisha laid upon “his bed” not upon the child. Please don’t cherry pick the word to justify sin.

  8. I have seen Bishop Jackson pray over water and people who had various conditions including cancer and HIV drank the water they were with were totally healed. His manner may be different, but the people are changed by the power of God

    • Carolyn, the issue here is not healing. The issue here is his judgment and apparent distortion of scripture in this bishop installation process. It is ultimately the power of God that changes,sets free and delivers, however the concern here is the idolatry and in my perspective the abuse of power.

    • Hello Carolyn,

      [Just so you know, I use caplocks to emphasize certain words, not because I’m yelling at you].

      You said: “I have seen Bishop Jackson pray over water and people who had various conditions including cancer and HIV drank the water they were with were totally healed.”

      #1. When people were healed in Scripture, God left a written record of it as evidence. Surely if a Christian were healed of terminal diseases such as CANCER and HIV, they would have went to the doctor to have their dramatic healing verified and documented on WRITTEN RECORD. Yet these people you CLAIM were allegedly “healed” by Wayne T. Jackson DO NOT have a documented record of their healing — because it NEVER happened. It’s also strange that you claimed to have PERSONALLY WITNESSED these miraculous healings, yet you do not know their names nor did you keep in touch with them. If someone were healed of CANCER and HIV right in front of me, I guarantee you that I would have taken down their names and followed up with them. . . . but hey, that’s just me. But you want me to believe that you SAW people get healed of CANCER and HIV right in front of you, and you don’t even know their names? Once again, it’s because it never happened. I’m discerning enough to know when a TRUE MIRACLE actually happened by the hand of God, and when it’s a bogus story designed to elevate some so-called “man or woman of God.”

      #2. The miracles in Scripture were credited to God. Yet the very first thing you did was give the credit, honor, and glory to “Bishop Jackson” — can’t you see that’s idolatry? When a TRUE MIRACLE is performed, the credit/glory/and honor is always given to Jesus Christ, and not to a mere man or woman. One of the signs of a false “miracle” is that the “miracle” is always associated with THE LEADER and LIFTS HIM UP instead of GOD.

      #3. Even *IF* God has performed TRUE MIRACLES through Wayne T. Jackson, the miracles do not JUSTIFY or EXCUSE the FALSE/UNSCRIPTURAL rituals that he performed on those 2 men at the “consecration” service. If I perform a miracle right now, does that give me PERMISSION to do things that are FALSE/UNSCRIPTURAL at a consecration service? Of course not. Whether God performs miracles through someone or not, that does not NEGATE their RESPONSIBILITY to operate according to the word of God — nor does it negate them from being HELD ACCOUNTABLE when they’re in error.

      You said: “His manner may be different, but the people are changed by the power of God”

      #1. This is not about Wayne T. Jackson doing something that seems “different.” It is OKAY to do things that are different. This is about Wayne T. Jackson doing things that were FALSE/UNSCRIPTURAL. It is not okay for people who claim to be Christians [and especially people who claim to be leaders] to do things that are FALSE/UNSCRIPTURAL. Jesus did many things that were different and out of the ordinary — but He did not do anything that was FALSE/UNSCRIPTURAL. There may be times that God leads us to do things that appear to be different — but He will NEVER tell us to do something that is FALSE/UNSCRIPTURAL. God does not contradict the Scriptures He inspired.

      #2. Wayne T. Jackson was not performing a miracle at the “consecration” service. He was allegedly “consecrating” 2 men as “bishops.” So your comment about his so-called “miracles” really has nothing to do with the ISSUE AT HAND. Can you show me a Scripture where the prophets, apostles, or Jesus laid on top of other men in order to “CONSECRATE” THEM INTO A LEADERSHIP POSITION? If you can show me one Scripture where someone ORDAINED A LEADER in such a manner, I will delete this blog. Thanks and Jesus bless you mightily!~

    • The bible says that many will come to him saying we healed the sick, raised the dead etc and he will say he never knew them for they were workers of iniquity. It is not the man healing them..it is the faith of the people that heals them. not every self proclaimed healer will live with Yahweh. Keep that in mind

    • Hello “Study”,

      Are you trying to TWIST and STRETCH 2 kings 4:32 across the false and unscriptural rituals performed by Wayne T. Jackson at the “bishop’s consecration” service? If so, you are in serious error.

      In 2 Kings 4:32 Elisha laid on a DEAD boy and the boy came back to life. Yet at the “consecration” service, no one was DEAD and no one was healed or resurrected. So there is NO analogy, comparison, or parallel between 2 Kings 4:32 and Jackson’s behavior at the “consecration” service.

      It was suppose to be an “installment or consecration” service, and the Scriptures give specific instructions on how to place qualified men of God into the eldership. It says to LAY HANDS upon them [see 1 Timothy 4:14 and 2 Timothy 1:6], NOT tell them to get on their knees, lay prostrate before you, grab their ankles, and lay one’s BODY upon their backside. None of this can be found in Scripture in the context of ORDAINING, CONSECRATING, & INSTALLING a leader.

      No one was dead at that “consecration” service — therefore any sorry excuses that “the rituals symbolized death and resurrection!” are a false defense and cries of desperation. According to Scripture, a minister of God has *ALREADY* been baptized into Christ’s death and brought to new life through His resurrection — so he is already crucified and ALIVE unto God for service. For Wayne T. Jackson to claim that the rituals symbolized their death and resurrection “so that Jesus can live in them” shows a serious lack of spiritual understanding on his behalf. As well as those who applauded it and defend his erroneous actions.

  9. Well written article Evelyn, impactful and insightful. Hopefully it can be a benefit to the men inside of the visible church who play the game of Passa and Bishop worship.

    Testostorone is greatly needed in an over-effeminate church system!
