The purpose of this article is to present additional evidence that David E. Taylor is a false apostle and a false prophet. This article could also be considered a Biblical analysis of David E. Taylor.
Ephesians 5:11 says, “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead expose them;”
If you visit David E. Taylor’s official website, then navigate to —>About—>The Man—>Biography – Chronicles of Life, it says that he serves in “all the five-fold ministry offices as an apostle.”
Right off the bat, the biography exalts Taylor as someone who is extraordinarily gifted by God and in the “upper echelon” of the Kingdom of God. He isn’t just a preacher, just a pastor, just a prophet, or just a teacher. . . he’s so much more than that. . . he serves in “ALL the five-fold ministry offices as an apostle.”
This exaggerated claim is intended to make him seem “spiritually elite” in the minds of his supporters, because many people are impressed by someone who allegedly functions in “all of the five-fold ministry offices,” and many people believe that the title “apostle” is the highest ranking title or the highest ranking ministry out of all of the spiritual gifts, and that an apostle is the “highest authority” in the body of Christ.
I remember back in the day, many people believed that the title “bishop” was the highest ranking title or the highest ranking ministry out of all of the spiritual gifts, and that a bishop is a “higher authority” over pastors, preachers, teachers, and multiple congregations in a region. It seemed like everyone and their grandma was seeking after the title “bishop” and being “ordained” as bishops, thinking that it elevated them to a higher level in a religious chain of command.
The same thing is happening today with the title “apostle.” It is the new “I’m higher up than you are” title that everyone is seeking after and this is one of the reasons why we see many people today calling themselves “apostles” to seem greater than they really are, impress others, and gain a higher status, greater prominence, and unearned undeserved credibility.
By claiming to serve in “all the five-fold ministry offices as an apostle,” Taylor portrays himself as spiritually-superior to other Believers and in a separate (higher) spiritual class.
As we continue to examine his biography, we will see more examples of how Taylor paints himself as spiritually elite and “greater than an ordinary Believer” in the minds of his supporters.
Taylor’s biography says that he has a “unique ability to help people experience the Lord’s intense presence through worship and to receive extraordinary miracles in their body and lives during services.”
The word “unique” means “being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else.” Why does Taylor claim to have the “unique (one of a kind) ability” to help people experience God’s presence through worship when Hebrews 6:19-20 says that Jesus is the one who has the unique ability to lead us “through the curtain” or “beyond the veil” into God’s presence, because He has already gone in there for us.
“This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.” (Hebrews 6:19-20)
Some of you might not think this is important, significant, or even see a problem with it. But I consider it a red flag when someone claims to have a “unique (one of a kind) ability” to usher people into God’s presence, because Scripture teaches that Jesus has already ushered us into God’s presence as a “forerunner” who entered into God’s inner sanctuary before us, and split the curtain from top to bottom by His death and opened up the way to the throne of grace.
Considering that Jesus is the forerunner who went before us to open up the way into God’s presence by His death on the Cross and sent the Holy Spirit (His Advocate) to help us experience God’s presence — how can anyone claim to have a “unique (one of a kind) ability” to do what Jesus has already done for us and what He continues to do for us via the Holy Spirit?
The reason why I am pointing this out is because you will notice a pattern throughout Taylor’s biography, in which he claims to usher people into God’s presence and even bring people into the physical presence of Jesus Christ. Something that seems insignificant becomes significant when it is a pattern.
Taylor also claims to have a “unique ability” to help people “receive extraordinary miracles in their body and lives during services.”
The word “extraordinary” means “very unusual or remarkable.” The miracles of Jesus were extraordinary. He regenerated and restored body parts, gave sight to the blind, gave mute people the ability to speak, resurrected the dead, healed leprosy, gave cripples the ability to walk, gave paralyzed people the ability to move their limbs freely, gave deaf people the ability to hear, healed terminal illnesses from long distance, cast demons out of people, and miraculously fed thousands of hungry people from only five loaves and two fish. And He did all of this on the spot, in front of eyewitnesses — including some who were His enemies.
Considering that Jesus performed extraordinary miracles — How can Taylor say that *he* helps people receive “extraordinary (very unusual or remarkable) miracles” in their bodies and lives? What miracles has God allegedly performed through Taylor that qualify as “extraordinary” and therefore can be placed on the same level as Jesus’ miracles?
Where is the evidence of these “extraordinary miracles”? I searched high and low online and I wasn’t able to find any medical evidence verifying that anyone has received “extraordinary miracles” in their bodies and lives through David E. Taylor. When Jesus healed people, even His enemies saw the evidence. So where is Taylor’s evidence?
And even IF there were any evidence, the spiritual source behind these alleged “extraordinary miracles” is highly questionable due to the fraudulent and corrupt behavior, message, and financial activities of David E. Taylor.
There is nothing “unique” about a leader claiming that people have received “extraordinary miracles” through him. There are thousands of leaders all around the world who say the same thing. There is nothing special about this. Leaders like Taylor are a dime a dozen. Yet Taylor describes himself as having a “unique ability” and “extraordinary miracles” being performed through him, because once again, it makes him seem “spiritually elite” in the minds of his supporters and as if God is doing something exceptional through him.
It’s not about evidence, substance, and reality, but about giving people an illusion that he is very spiritual, very powerful, and very important in the Kingdom of God. Human beings are more prone to believe in illusions and delusions than truth, reality, and evidence.
Are you impressed yet? If not, then hold onto your hat, because Taylor also claims to see Jesus “face to face” in person “on a consistent basis.”
“the part of the ministry that the Lord has entrusted him with that he prizes the most highest is, the special face to face appearance relationship and friendship with Jesus personally.”
I’m the type of person that pays close attention to words. Why? Because Jesus said that our words (what we say) flows out of our heart (Luke 6:45). You can learn a lot about a person if you just sit and listen to what they say. False apostles and false prophets tell on themselves all the time just by TALKING. The problem is that many people don’t pay attention to what they say and examine/discern their words under the magnifying glass of Scripture.
Taylor says that he has a “special” face to face “appearance” relationship with Jesus. The word “special” means “better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual.” What makes Taylor’s so-called “relationship” with Jesus better, greater, or different from what is usual? He allegedly sees Jesus face to face and you don’t.
See. . . your relationship with Jesus is “usual” because you don’t see Him face to face. You know Jesus by the Spirit and by faith like every other “ordinary Believer.” Taylor on the other hand isn’t an “ordinary Believer” because he has a “special” face to face relationship with Jesus. Yet Jesus said “. . . Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” (John 20:29)
Taylor’s biography goes on to say, “The glory manifested out of this friendship is what flows over into the peoples lives and brings them to meet with the Lord, face-to-face in person, just like it says about Moses life and ministry… “and he brought the people to meet with God.”
He claims that the “glory” from his “special face to face relationship” with Jesus flows into the lives of his supporters and brings them into face-to-face encounters with Jesus too.
Once again, Taylor is exalting himself into an elite spiritual class of his own. He is pretty much claiming to be some sort of “channel” or “conduit” through which God’s glory flows into the lives of others and ushers them into the physical presence of Jesus.
This is meant to give the impression that Taylor is very special in the Kingdom of God, if not the most important person on earth. After all, Jesus has allegedly chosen him out of billions of people on earth to appear to face to face, and usher others into His physical presence.
What are people actually experiencing? An emotional high. Jesus doesn’t appear as you will see in the video below. It’s just a Jedi mind trick. There is no one on the stage.
Notice also that Taylor exalts himself to the same level as Moses by claiming that he brings people to meet with God. I call this the “Moses-complex” which you can read more about by clicking here.
By exalting himself to the same level as Moses, Taylor places himself in the position of Christ, which is Anti-Christ. Why? Because Moses was a type or shadow of Christ. His life and ministry were Divinely-designed to illustrate the life and ministry of Jesus.
In Deuteronomy 18:15-19, God told the children of Israel that He would raise up a prophet like Moses — this prophet is not David E. Taylor, it is the Lord Jesus Christ. So here we see a contradiction: Taylor says that he is like Moses. But Scripture says that Jesus is like Moses.
Just like the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, Jesus knows the Father face to face. Just like God put His words in Moses’ mouth, Jesus spoke the very words of the Father. Just like Moses performed extraordinary miracles, Jesus performed extraordinary miracles. Just like Moses inaugurated a covenant with blood, Jesus inaugurated the New Covenant with His blood. Jesus (not David E. Taylor) is the prophet who God raised up to be like Moses.
Taylor’s biography says, “Humility and the meekness of Jesus characterizes David’s lifestyle in person,”
First of all, if someone is truly humble, they won’t announce it because, well, they’re humble, and their fruit speaks for itself. Humble people don’t seek to draw attention to themselves by talking about how humble they are — prideful people do, because they have false humility.
Second of all, Taylor claims to have the humility of Jesus because once again, he is exalting himself to the same level as Moses (Moses was noted in Scripture for his humility). Numbers 12:3 says that Moses was more humble than anyone on earth. Jesus, who is like Moses, was also noted in Scripture for his humility (Philippians 2:5-11).
It is the height of hypocrisy and quite ironic for Taylor to claim to have the humility of Jesus in order to lift himself up and portray himself as “great” before the people. Feigning humility to glorify self is contradictory. Humility does not exalt itself, pride does.
“But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (Matthew 23:12)
Let’s think about this for a minute. If someone truly saw the Lord of glory face-to-face in His majestic heavenly form — do you really think that they would leave His presence full of pride, boast in how many “five-fold offices” they function in, emphasize alleged “extraordinary miracles” that God performs through them, claim that their relationship with Jesus is greater or better than other Believers, exalt themselves to the same level as Moses, claim that they are a conduit of God’s glory and bring people into the physical presence of Jesus, and tell others how humble and meek THEY are? I think not.
If you read the Scriptures where people saw God’s heavenly glory, God’s throne, angels of God, and had face-to-face encounters with the risen Christ in His majestic heavenly form — you will notice that they were all humbled, afraid, in awe, in shock, rendered speechless, to the point of fainting, and saw how sinful they were in the presence of a holy sinless God.
They did not leave God’s presence talking about how spiritual they are, boasting in their encounter with God or the vision He gave them, or build a
business “ministry” teaching others how to have visions, dreams, and face-to-face encounters with God. But rather, they left His presence in worship, preaching and prophesying His word, sometimes with great grief and mourning for the people’s sins, pointing people to God and not themselves.
Taylor’s biography, behavior, and lifestyle is not indicative of someone who has had a face-to-face encounter with the risen Lord. His fruit is not indicative of someone who knows the Lord at all.
In Matthew 24:4-5 Jesus told His disciples “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.”
Many professing Christians think that Jesus was only warning us about cult leaders who say the literal words “I am Jesus” “I am the Christ.”
Cult leaders who make the literal claim to be Jesus would be included in that warning. But Jesus was also warning us to watch out for a more deceptive type of leader who–in a very slick crafty manner–puts on sheep’s clothing and portrays himself as if he is a “messiah” by exalting himself to the position of Christ.
Wolves in sheep’s clothing, as Jesus called them in Matthew 7:15-20, do not say the literal words “I am the Messiah.” But rather, they claim to be your personal messiah in a more subtle manner, which is why we must pay attention and use discernment.
In the church, false messiahs claim to be Christ through the use of glorified titles that lift them up and cannot be rightfully applied to anyone but God, through the use of false teachings that place them in the role of the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit, through the use of practices, rituals, and traditions that center the attention on them and seduce people to worship them, through the use of alleged “miracles,” “visions,” “prophecies,” and “Divine encounters” that make them appear “larger than life” and “more special” in the Kingdom of God, and through the use of various statements such as claiming to be “more anointed” than others and claiming to be “the head” of the Church.
David E. Taylor does these things.
In his biography, he claims that Jesus openly appeared “in Washington State in the sight of three million people at one time over three whole regions in 2006. This appearance lasted for an entire hour and was captured by the secular media on television, in photographs and in print. This type or some similar manifestation happens where ever the Lord sends David. In whatever city or church David enters, he is accompanied by the special privilege of the Lord personally working with him.”
If you are a born-again Believer, a huge red flag should have went up in your Spirit.
In Matthew 24:23-27, Jesus said that if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s elect. So if someone tells you, ‘Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,’ don’t bother to go and look. Or, ‘Look, he is hiding here,’ don’t believe it! For as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west, so it will be when the Son of Man comes.
Taylor’s false claim that Jesus returned and appeared to millions of people in Washington State is a prime example of what Jesus warned us against in the passage above.
If you are a Taylor supporter, you HAVE to get this, because your soul is at stake. Life is but a vapor and you have no time or emotional energy to waste defending personalities in the pulpit, putting on a superman cape for leaders who do not even know you nor care about you, and wrap your spiritual identity around some leader so that when someone tells you the truth about them you get offended and act like someone is attacking you personally.
This is not a personal attack or an “attack from the devil.” This is a warning based on the word of Christ which can save your soul if you receive it and let go of the lie. The Lord loves you so much that He told you in advance what David E. Taylor would say and do so that you wouldn’t fall for it. He told you that false messiahs and false prophets would say that He physically appeared somewhere on earth. This is a lying wonder meant to deceive you. Don’t believe it.
Jesus said that when He returns, it will be like lightning flashing across the sky from the east to the west. If lightning flashed across the sky from the east to the west, everyone would see it. In like manner, when Jesus returns, everyone will see Him. It won’t be a secret. There won’t be people in the world who don’t know that He returned, and David E. Taylor most certainly won’t be the center of attention.
Consider Taylor’s claim, “This type or some similar manifestation happens where ever the Lord sends David. In whatever city or church David enters, he is accompanied by the special privilege of the Lord personally working with him”
Once again, pay close attention to the words that are being used. Taylor said that “he is accompanied“ by the Lord “working with him.“ The word “accompanied” means “to go somewhere with (someone) as a companion or escort.” For example, if I go to the State Fair and my friend Alicia accompanies me, this means that she came >>WITH ME<< or tagged along with me as a companion to keep me company.
Why am I pointing this out? Because it’s very telling that Taylor said whatever city or church he enters, the Lord accompanies him, as if Taylor is the main person on this mission and Jesus is just tagging along with him. Biblically speaking, if we are ministering to people, Jesus is not accompanying us — it’s the other way around, we are accompanying Jesus. He is “the main Man” and we are following Him and accompanying Him as we follow His voice and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Also notice that Taylor said the Lord is “personally working with him.“ This is very telling as well. Jesus does not work with us. We work with Him. Do you understand the difference? If someone says that Jesus is working “with them,” that makes it sound like they have set out to accomplish something and Jesus has come alongside them to execute whatever they are doing and go along with their idea. It makes it sound like Jesus has entered into their labor. However, Jesus does not accompany us and roll up His sleeves and work with us. It’s the other way around. We enter into His labors and He works in us and through us, the will of God.
To speak of Jesus as if He is tagging along with us from city to city, church to church, and working with us reverses the roles. It elevates us to His position and subordinates Him to our position.
This was important for me to mention because false apostles and false prophets often speak and behave as if they are the “main man” and Jesus is just following them around, tagging along to do their bidding, and performing manifestations to confirm their “ministry.“
Taylor makes it sound like he is the centerpiece of the work of Christ and that Jesus is just following him everywhere that he goes performing manifestations. Does this sound like “the humility of Jesus” to you? It sounds more like pride and narcissism. Jesus does not center his ministry around any one man. Nor does He follow anyone around performing manifestations that lift them up and make them the focus. The Lord is the centerpiece of whatever work He does and we are suppose to be following HIM.
Back in 2014, Taylor falsely prophelied that the Broncos would win the 2014 Superbowl.
As we know, that prophecy failed, which makes him a false prophet according to Scripture.
“If the prophet speaks in the Lord’s name but his prediction does not happen or come true, you will know that the Lord did not give that message. That prophet has spoken without my authority and need not be feared.” (Deuteronomy 18:22)
True prophets of God never miss the mark, because God is precise, exact, and knows the future. His word never fails and it always accomplish exactly what He desires.
Taylor did post an “apology” for his failed Superbowl prophecy, but it was only damage control to repair his tarnished image and make himself look “humble” to his supporters. It wasn’t sincere and there was no genuine fruit of repentance.
On top of failed prophecies, Taylor is now being investigated for criminal charges including charges related to financial corruption.
In the video below, Taylor is being questioned in court by a member of the Michigan Bar and he does not seem to know where his business offices are located.
It is not normal for the founder of an organization to not know where their business offices are located.
Notice how he attempts to duck and dodge the lawyer’s questions and avoid giving her straightforward answers. His was very evasive throughout the deposition.
In the video below, Taylor does not seem to know who the members of his board are besides himself and a woman named Michelle Brannon.
It is not normal for the founder of an organization to not know who the members of his board are. This is all very strange.
The video below reveals that $6,000 in JMMI donations were spent on a Disneyland vacation for Taylor, his children and staff. When asked if this vacation was reported on his taxes as a paid vacation, Taylor said that he didn’t know.
He said that he doesn’t know much about his finances which is odd — but he assured the lawyer that he isn’t doing anything illegal. How can he assure anyone that his finances are being handled lawfully if he doesn’t know much of anything and someone else handles his finances for him?
This court transcript shows that a David E. Taylor supporter and volunteer named “Debbie Frazier” [aka Deborah Hoskins] donated $1.2 million dollars to JMMI. This violated a court order which stated that Debbie was not allowed to give any money to Taylor/JMMI.
There are court orders stating that Debbie is not allowed to bring her children to St. Louis and participate in JMMI.
As a result of donating over one million dollars to Taylor/JMMI that she couldn’t afford, Debbie ended up in dire straits financially, put her housing at risk, and cut back on seeing her children. She also has a huge IRS bill.
The lawyer asked Taylor if he would be willing to give Debbie some of her money back considering that she is destitute. Taylor’s response? “I would love to do that if we have the money, presently we don’t.” Which raises the question, where did the money go?
The lawyer asked, “When Deborah Frazier volunteers, do you pay her travel costs when she comes to St. Louis?” Taylor responded, “No.” The lawyer, “She’s on her own?” Taylor, “Yeah.”
So here is a woman who is now financially destitute as a result of donating $1.2 million dollars to Taylor/JMMI, is at risk of being homeless, and has pulled back on seeing her children. Yet JMMI spent her hefty donation and does not pay her travel costs when she comes to St. Louis. “She’s on her own” as Taylor said. This is cold-blooded.
Mark the words of Jesus, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)
“But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed.” (2 Peter 2:1-3)
This same transcript, as well as the video below, reveal that Taylor claimed an unknown dependent on his taxes and that his father prepared his taxes in 2012. If Taylor is claiming false “dependents” on his taxes, that is tax fraud and it shows dishonesty and a lack of integrity. It is also problematic for his father to prepare his taxes, because it presents a conflict of interest due to personal bias.
The video below shows that from 2013-2014, Taylor spent over $30,000 in JMMI donations on a designer wardrobe (Versace, Gucci, Monsieur Clothing in New York, Armani, Louis Vuitton, and Italian Collection Clothes).
Take note that the donate page on Taylor’s official website requests donations under the false pretense of “furthering the work of the Lord Jesus Christ” and “taking the life-saving and miracle-working power of Jesus Christ to the world through broadcasts, mission outreaches, and world wide crusades.”
Expensive luxurious designer clothing does not fall under the banner of “the work of Jesus Christ” or “life-saving.” It is a sign of greed, vanity, and materialism.
The lawyer rightly asked Taylor, “. . . you don’t see that there’s any problem when you’re ministering to the poor or the sick, the needy, to be appearing in Louis Vuitton and Versace?” Taylor responded that he’s a “very frugal person.” Yeah right.
The video below shows that JMMI owns three luxury vehicles: a BMW, a Mercedes, and a Bentley. $50,000 in JMMI donations were spent on converting a Mercedes into a limousine for the purpose of driving guests around.
Taylor said that JMMI has two drivers who serve him as
glorified armor bearers “adjutants.” The lawyer asked if they are being financially compensated and Taylor said that they are unpaid volunteers. Their “compensation” is that they are “blessed by his ministry.”
The lawyer then asked, how do they pay their bills if they are serving him all day? The answer is that Taylor doesn’t care. As long as his bills are paid and he’s able to buy $5,000 designer belts, that’s all that matters to him.
The video below shows that Taylor owns a $2.5 million dollar home as an asset, as noted in his report. But when he was confronted about it being listed as an asset, he states that it should be listed as a liability.
Jesus warned us that many leaders would come to us in His name/authority, claiming that they are the messiah. He said that they would deceive many. Are you in this number? Have you overlooked the characteristics of a false messiah and fallen for one? If so, the good news is that you still have time to repent, withdraw your support, and take up your cross and follow Jesus.
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
“These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)
“Suppose there are prophets among you or those who dream dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles, and the predicted signs or miracles occur. If they then say, ‘Come, let us worship other gods’—gods you have not known before— do not listen to them. The Lord your God is testing you to see if you truly love him with all your heart and soul. Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him. The false prophets or visionaries who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the Lord your God, who redeemed you from slavery and brought you out of the land of Egypt. Since they try to lead you astray from the way the Lord your God commanded you to live, you must put them to death. In this way you will purge the evil from among you.” (Deuteronomy 13:1-5)
“This man [the lawless one] will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

Dear Evelyn I got saved a year ago…I will not be persuaded or moved by what people say and always refer to Gods word,a conversation with friends about David E Tarlor got me thinking and I was very disturbed with what was shared ,so I decided to search about him ,to my surprise I came across this!I have to ask God if everything on this post is correct ,but I do know I wasn’t prepared to receive what his revelations were about.I am so disturbed that people are easily deceived if all this is true.
Sadly, people are easily deceived, and Jesus warned us that this would happen in Matthew 24, so this is the fulfillment of prophecy. Take heart in the fact that the word of God is true and it is being confirmed before your very eyes by false apostles like David E. Taylor. I encourage you to “test all things” and fact-check everything in this article by comparing it to the Scriptures and your own research. Hold fast to Christ and His word, and let your roots grow deep in Him!~
2 Peter 2:1-10
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will o secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
4 For if God did not spare u angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell 1 and committed them to chains 2 of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 5 if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought ya flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;3 7 and cif he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked 8 (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); 9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials,4 and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who indulge 5 in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.
I went to one night with the king 12/29/2015 – 01/01/2016. It almost caused me to fall away. I bought my family and traveled all the way to Detroit to “see the Lord”. The only one who could see The Lord was David E Taylor. Those who couldn’t see or feel His presence were “in the flesh”. I bought family members to be healed. This man needs to be exposed so he can stop conning people.
Not one time in the depositions can David E. Taylor cite an actual credible charitable work he himself does in the bankrupt community of Detroit where his headquarters is, or in the St. Louis area where his “residential center” is. He instead takes credit for other’s donations and says that what they wanted to give him directly he had them donate to the ministry instead, but the money still made its way back into his pockets tax-free under the cloak of his ministry’s nonprofit status. This is an old trick ministers use so they are not taxed on personal finances and why I feel their exemption status should be revoked. His entire “ministry” is based on “profit” while he pretends to be a “prophet”.
The cult following of David E. Taylor and those ignorantly supporting this kind of deception by defending him are deeply “religious” but very shallow “spiritually”. The Scriptures speak of “pure religion” in JAMES 1:27, and then defines what exactly that is in tending to the needs of such as the widows and orphans; meaning the poor, elderly, abandoned and disenfranchised.
So called “Christians” who overlook this to defend false prophets have no concept of what “pure religion” is as it relates to being “spiritual” by demonstrating the example of Christ in service to one’s fellow man versus the sincere neglect bred by the selfish money hungry teachings of the religious. “Pure Religion” has caused no problems in the world nor has truly living “spiritually minded” like Christ. The religious and anti-spiritual who trust in themselves or men as if they are God are those guilty of that by man-made scripture twisting religion and self centered philosophy.
JAMES 1:27; “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” #PureReligion
Good morning, what is the likelihood that David E. Taylor is going to face jail time and/or pay restitution for his perjury and fraud? In the videos, he is frequently referencing a Michelle. Is he already throwing her under the bus as a way to place the blame any financial mismanagement on her?
Also, I admire the woman’s patience and straightforward questioning of Mr. Taylor. She obviously is experienced in dealing with slimy bastards like him.

I want to know “what” complaint or concern led to the FEDS / STATE hauling the apostle into their offices to question him? What ever happened, it sounds as if the lady that gave him1.2M someone is protecting her and her children thank God! I keep saying…..”these jack legged preachers who are self appointed and self anointed” are causing the real christian churches to be also reviewed (in a negative way) by the IRS for their Non-profit status. The true vine churches will stand and has the blood of Jesus on them to weather this coming storm.
apostle taylor told me that the lord heal me and when i go back and get test they will not found it i went back and got test and it has not gone somebody haS MISS GOD IT WAS THIS YEAR IN OCTBER
Great expose of this dangerous false teacher. I can’t help but think that people are deceived into following these false teachers because of their false spiritual promises about the Lord blessing them with His presence through them. This seems to be the pull of Bethel church and Bill Johnson. If the followers of these people were truly regenerate and filled with the Holy Spirit then they wouldn’t be driven by the fleshly desire to experience God through the ministry of someone else, because they would be experiencing Christ in their lives on a daily basis as they walked with Him. Granted, there are likely many immature believers who are being deceived. That is why it is so important to speak out about these wolves. Perhaps their unregenerate followers will be brought to repentance by God’s great mercy and grace.
As an aside, I can’t help but wonder if the prophesy of who would win the 2014 Super Bowl wasn’t motivated by gambling interests. May Christ bless us mightily for His glory and praise. Amen!
I agree with everything that you have stated. I am hoping and praying that some of Taylor’s followers will repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ for salvation.
Eph 5:11 expose them
Dear Saints L West and Sister Evelyn
There is a Godly woman named Joni Eareckson Tada who is a quadriplegic from a diving accident when she was a teenager. She has been given a great ministry by the Lord where she helps and encourages disabled people worldwide from her wheel chair giveaway in 3rd world countries to her family camps here in the United States.
In her story she tells about going to a Kathryn Kuhlman Event and she and was herded with other souls who were also in a similar condition into one unseen section of the auditorium where Kuhlman. They all prayed and held on even though they knew more and more in their heart as the service went on that Kuhlman wasn’t going to heal any of them. You can imagine the humiliation they felt near the end of the service when they herded out again early as a group so no one would see them upon exiting the auditorium at the end of the service.
I can’t imagine went through these souls minds as they found out they were being treated as a group. Imagine the dehumanization, humiliation, anger and hopelessness that they were put through all for the sordid gain of Kuhlman all in the Lord’s name.
There are not so kind words for Kathryn Kuhlman I would use to describe her, but our dear host at Exit Churchianity would surely delete my post and Yeshua would have me repent. Kuhlman is depraved.
If you search Youtube with Joni’s name and Kuhlman you can see the video. I believe the video is called “A deeper healing”.
Have a blessed Christmas.
Wow. . . that is horrible. I am glad that Joni’s faith was not destroyed and that she is still in the Lord and ministering the Gospel. I read that Benny Hinn does the same thing at his crusades (seats people in wheelchairs FAR away from the stage and does not bring them up front to “heal” them).
If you take a photo with a cell phone you don’t have to wait to get it develop as the lady stated. Your points were very well written. Before I came across this site I came to the same conclusion. I reviewed JMMI website, I listen to TBN footage and I have to say something is extremely wrong with Mr Taylor representation of Christ. Lastly, if you’re a leader of a gang what career did you give up? Being a chef! That ain’t gangster.
Amen! Thank you, discernment and basic sense are SO important.
I pray that God have mercy….
A mis-use of funds, and he got carried away. That is not to say he is not anointed and used of God just not good use of the ministry funds. This person needs to learn from those who been in the industry to know how to allocate the funds appropriately separate ministry from personal use. The investigator did not like the money he had and how they were disposed but the same happens in White Collar America , CEO,COO.CFO’s who do the same. Wake up!!!
According to Scripture, making merchandise of men (i.e., using donations that were requested for “spreading the Gospel” to purchase luxuries) proves that he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, not an anointed man of God.
You said “The investigator did not like the money he had” — how do you know the investigator’s motives for asking questions? Can you see her motives as if you are God? No. Her issue, God’s issue, and the issue of many Believers is — he is collecting donations to so-called “spread the Gospel” and lavishing those donations on HIMSELF and “high profile” guests. That is the behavior of a wolf in sheep’s clothing, not an anointed man of God. None of the prophets or apostles behaved that way. Please study the Scriptures to learn what an anointed minister of Christ looks like. It speaks volume that David E. Taylor is engaging in the same financial corruption as “White Collar America.” That should tell you that he is of the world and actually running a for-profit business since he is behaving just like wicked greedy secular CEOs.
Ladya, your response is very concerning. This is nothing to do with misallocation of funds it’s deeper than that. The bible tells us there’s spiritual wickedness in high places and this is a fine example of that. Anybody that puts themselves above Jesus the son of God is blaspheming. David is a false profit not an individual who struggles to appropriately manage and use Gods money.!,,,
But the corporate administratir is not supposedly representing God. This is more than him needing to learn how to manage funds he is obviously using “ministry” money for his personal use and only pays a few hundred dollars a month for child support. What a loser, poor excuse for of man. He is juat a gangster that hides behind the Bible.
From my teaching, I thought Jesus named HIS 12 Apostles in Matt 10:2 anyway. After they deceased, the 12 that is, I never read in my Word, where he appointed any new ones here on earth….People need to stick with the Word, and they will not go wrong!
There is some disagreement in the body of Christ as to whether there are apostles today. But no matter which position a person holds to, Taylor (and others like him) fail the fruit test that Jesus gave in Matthew 7:15-20. I agree that if people stick to the word of God — especially the qualifications of an elder (1 Timothy 3, Titus 1:6-9, and 1 Peter 5:1-3), they will not go wrong! Thank you for commenting Rene.
In Ephesians 4, verses 11-14 we are told that some are given to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers UNTIL the body of Christ has reached fullness. Therefore people are still being given as gifts to the Body in each of the 5 “offices”. (Also if we believe that apostles are no longer given, then we could also assume pastors, teachers, etc. are no longer given) I don’t like calling them offices though, because Jesus refers to it as our “callings” and that He “gave” us to each other to edify one another as the Body. Using the term “office” makes it seem as if we are divided by cubicles or something lol. We are one body! Jesus was, is, and always will be the ONLY person to have operated in all 5 callings. Often times Apostles are mistaken to be operating in all 5 because they have other areas as spiritual gifts but not callings. An Apostle is someone who is “sent”. It comes from the word “messenger”. Apostles are usually responsible to go out and disciple ministries in multiple lands. Not as a boss over those people, but as a servant. Apostles can often be found utilizing gifts to teach/preach, evangelize, shepherd, and even prophesy, but that isn’t their calling and therefore those gifts won’t be as dominate as those who are actually called as teachers, evangelists, etc. Also I believe Aquila and Priscilla among others were actually Apostles in the early Church. Nonetheless, we all do need to be well grounded and established in the word of God so we aren’t swayed by such false leaders and doctrine. Let’s continue to keep the Word at the center of our hearts and decisions as we live out the glorious victory of Jesus, enforcing the devil’s defeat on this earth.
Ephesians 4:11-16New King James Version (NKJV)
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
I prayed that the Lord strengthen you in His work. It is so sad that even with this level of exposure, people will stay stand behind their “Man of Gawd”. The scripture warn us to have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them (Eph 5:11). This is in line with the scriptures. Unfortunately, Lionel Blair wants to silence you by quoting scriptures out of context. The great commission in Matthew 28: 19 commissioned every disciple of Christ to go and preach the gospel. This right is not reserved for special group of people(clergy) in the body of Christ ” But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed . 12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come , he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. 13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. 14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews ? (Gal 2: 11-14) ” Because of Peter’ behavior, Barnabas was lead astray. Paul withstood Peter to his face publicly. I know many wants you to just pray for him and be quiet. I know that you have prayed for him to repent of his ways. Because David Taylor ordeal is public, it must be done publicly to warn disciples of Christ. Or else, many will be carried away by such behavior and may fall away from their faith in Christ.
Thank you. I appreciate your prayers. If millions of people followed Hitler, and millions of angels followed Satan in his rebellion even though they knew God face to face, then anything is possible. People are reaching out behind the scenes and sharing even worse things about David E. Taylor. If it be God’s will, more things will be uncovered. Hopefully some Taylor supporters will repent and be set free from this religious deception.
Hey Evelyn! Great expose`!
These false so called apostles, prophets, bishops, etc. can no longer hide in the shadows. Keep on uncovering this foolishness and sounding the alarm. Of course re: Blair; You know the saying, a hit dog will yell! He knows much of his ridiculous teaching his been put on blast, so he has to come at you for exposing more of the works of darkness in these sinistries, I mean “ministries”. Touch not mine anointed…blah, blah. Nothing anointed about these jokers behavior and shenanigans.
Amen! Thank you Darryl. As long as God wills, I will continue to stand up and speak out. It is pathetic that Blair is using a scandal that doesn’t even involve him to seek attention for himself. I guess the tiny teaspoon of people that attend him and his wife’s hotel meetings isn’t big enough to stroke his ego, so he feels the need to seek attention on the internet. Desperate.
HE NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL FOR REAL TAKING POOR FOLKS MONEY MONIES ..HE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL …
Reblogged this on I.J. WEST.
Thank you Isaiah
Mass hypnosis at play here!
Even exposure of this type will not sway the spiritually oppressed of these charlatans.
He is an up and coming Benny Hinn and to his credit probably has under Taylor’s (not Yahweh’s) ministry just as many documented healings as Hinn(sarcasm).
Gee, I earn twice as much as he does and support a homeless woman and her daughter and I am eating salads and those cheap noodle products half the time and drive a 14 year old PT Cruiser. Don’t laugh, it gets me around. And my palatial estate is a whopping 1400 sq ft with the siding falling off.
He’s blessed (sarcasm).
Unfortunately, all of this is all too mind boggling. It is sad. This is directly related to your last post people itching for the temporal blessing. It is even worse with the “socalled” seeker friendly Mega church Heretics like Furdick and Ed Young who can hide legally their “pastoral” housing allowance and their income/benefits is not transparent to even the government, let alone the congregation. And of course they throw out the elder system and teach their willing goats from a torn apart Bible.
I think the” Seeker Driven” Druckerites are more dangerous than the little Hinns though. The Warrens and the Hybels are normalizing sin without repentance, while mocking God with their modified Gospel.
The liberal media has more discernment then the sheep and goats whom follow these wolves and call them the thieves that they are.
It makes you sick.
I have been doing some reading lately on the life and times of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. While we probably disagree with some of his theology, there is some of his writings which is prophetic of what we are seeing in the visible church today. He called it “cheap grace” where we see a shell of Christianity with no substance to take on the battles of the enemy. You probably know the quote from his work “The Cost of Discipleship” :
______________________ Start Quote
“Cheap grace means grace sold on the market like a cheapjack’s wares. The sacraments, the forgiveness of sin, and the consolations of religion are thrown away at cut-rate prices. Grace is represented as the Church’s inexhaustible treasury, from which she showers blessings with generous hands, without asking questions or fixing limits. Grace without price; grace without cost! And the essence of grace, we suppose, is that the account has been paid in advance; and, because it has been paid, everything can be had for nothing. Since the cost was infinite, the possibilities of using and spending it are infinite. What would grace be, if it were not cheap?
. . . In such a Church the world finds a cheap covering for its sins; no contrition is required, still less any real desire to be delivered from sin. . .
Cheap grace means the justification of sin without the justification of the sinner. Grace alone does everything, they say, and so everything can remain as it was before. . . .
Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, (it is) baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession, absolution without personal confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer
___________________________ End Quote
I can’t say enough about Bonhoeffer. He was a man of extreme integrity and fought Hitler until he was silenced and sent to a Prison Camp. He had little patience for the compromising church. He was executed by Hitler. He died naked at the end of a SS hangman’s noose 23 days before Nazi Germany surrendered He was a true Martyr for the Gospel.
We now live with that heresy full blown. This generation is paying for what heresy was in the previous. I shudder to think about what the next generation of believers will have to fight. I see very few men and woman in Christianity that display the integrity needed as with Bonhoeffer did. You certainly won’t find him (or her) on TBN or in your local Mega Church or your up and coming self appointed Apostle / Profit (I mean Prophet – sorry).
I would urge anyone who is inclined to defend some of these questionable Christian Leaders to take a couple of breaths and study about the martyrs like Bonhoeffer and ask the simple question to yourself; do these socalled “men and woman” of God come close to the integrity of these true believers that gave their life for Christ. Please. What would they “really” give their life for?
Thank you for your work here Miss Evelyn. You put a lot of work in this.
God Bless you and your family dear Saint. Have a joyous Christmas.
Sheep and Recovering Pentecostal
Thank you Frank. Yes, I saw that Taylor is a follower of Benny Hinn (a sorcerer) and Kathryn Kuhlman (who was a witch). The “signs and wonders” crowd and the “seeker friendly church growth” Druckerites have much in common, even though they disagree on various doctrines and practices. Both have a religious Dominionist mindset/ideology, both are Ecumenical (in the sense of fostering unity with Roman Catholicism), both have a weak stance on Islam, both are more focused on large numbers and not holiness and mature disciples, both are a part of the world-system.
I can definitely see the fruit of the “cheap grace” that Bonhoeffer wrote about. Many seem to promote a false gospel of being “saved from hell” so that you can “go to heaven.” Salvation from sin is reduced to going to heaven, and not having a regenerated heart and faith that produces good works. Mentioning obedience, the cost of discipleship, holiness, and repentance will bring kneejerk accusations of “legalism” and “works based salvation.” There are boatloads of professing Christians running around boasting about how much God loves them, but there is no evidence that they love him (obedience). Yes, God does love us, and that is a wonderful thing to know. But He is worthy of being loved back. Love is meant to be reciprocated and mutually shared in a healthy vibrant relationship. Talking about how much God loves us and talking about “grace” while living in spiritual harlotry and unrepentant sin is a grave contradiction, and even the world can see that there is something wrong with this. It’s like a wife who boasts about how much her husband loves her and how gracious he is, while she runs around town committing adultery with other men. Where is her love for her husband? Where is her loyalty to him? Where is the exclusivity of their relationship? Is she not misrepresenting her husband’s good name? Yes. Professing Christians do the same, while boasting about God’s love and grace, but not living out the truth of the Gospel and not showing any signs that they are disciples of Jesus. People are just suppose to believe whatever comes out of their mouth, but not believe what they DO. Our fruit should match our profession. Talking about God’s love and grace, while living as if He doesn’t exist is hypocrisy and demonstrates a false gospel, a false christ, and a false salvation.
Hi Evelyn. Can you expound on your comment about Kathryn Kuhlman being a witch please. I ask because a while back I tried viewing her videos but she came across a bit “spooky” to me.
Sure L. West. The following video series, “Religious Divas,” highlights Kathryn Kuhlman.
Thanks Evelyn. I will view the video soon. God bless!
Amen and Amen
Looks like someone has too much time on their hands. You need to repent for ignorantly putting your mouth on God’s messenger. All you people do is point out what your carnal minds don’t agree with and try to twist scripture to justify it like your opinion is law. You will have your day in judgement when you have to stand before the Lord for yourself for persecuting and speaking against those that God has sent.
Lionel Blair also claims to be an “apostle” and is a devoted follower of David E. Taylor. It appears that false apostles flock together like birds of a feather.
[ranting, raging, and whining]
The Biblical apostles did not behave nor speak the way that you do. If they were walking the earth today, they would not be caught dead throwing tantrums and seeking attention on the internet like you do. They would be too busy preaching the Gospel, teaching the word of God, making disciples of Jesus (not disciples of themselves), and contending for the faith against in-house predators (wolves in sheep’s clothing) like David E. Taylor.
Your comments do not move me because I understand that Satan has you captive to do his will and you are not in your right mind. You are forgiven in advance for anything that you would possibly say to me or about me. My flesh has been crucified to ungodly religious behavior and there is nothing you can say or do to ruffle my feathers or provoke an ungodly immature “tit for tat.” You do not seem to be serious about Christ, sound exegesis of His Word, and the well-being of His flock, so you are out of place here and your comments serve no redemptive purpose.
Mr Taylor… You are a thieving sweaty crook who will have to stand before God on judgment day and account to The Almighty for your wicked ways. Those gullible followers are brainwashed into worshipping and serving you – you low life scum. You make me want to vommit. You’re a beast and I await the time when your tongue is unable to move and your designer clothes fall off you while you wither away back into the whole where you came from. You self titled lump of nothing.
Lionel, nobody is scared of your voodoo-style christianity. Nothing is going to happen to people who speak out against phonies like you.
I was there at one night with the king and God did not send David E Taylor. He is a con man. If I know this after 3 days then you know it all the more. He may have conned me out of my money, but I will expose him until everyone knows he is a liar.
