monday through friday for sure zoe ministries solicits for seed sowing into their ministry over their conference line 712-432-0075, enter my password 213620, which allows me to hear live what the prophets are reading, discussing, and soliciting seed money for during that session. according to the dollar amount of what anyone seeds, they are given a direct word from the prophet(s). many years have passed that ii have continually partnered with zoe ministry having sown much money into their organization. little did i know that this ministry does not have a financial missions fund, a fund who feeds the poor in this country, gives out clothing or even helps the homeless. i have just come to understand in 2010 after having sown $7.500 in 2010, at the least that this organization does not give back to the community when they are called upon. i was told right out of the mouth of prophet e bernard jorda, we are not set-up for missions, so what is giving hope to orphans in africa called?

i had a first hand experience, where i became homeless due to no fault of my own, abruptly and unexpected during this very cold winter season; i am desperatly in need of some financial assistance which i was not able to obtain through any government/private/or community agency in my county. I have been told by every organization that received stimulis money, there is nothing left, funds are all gone, so as a last resort i turned to the church for immediate help in getting out of a homeless and cold situation, needing help to pay first month's rent and security, which is all that i asked for. little did i know that i would receive a very cold abrupt response from bishop jordan and even his back up staff, all i could hear coming from the bishop and his staff is this, did you go here or there, did you try over there, but never did i hear we will help you up. nothing was ever mentioned about my faithful giving of much money into their ministry, but they are experts in the power of suggestion with saying did you go here or there. i have learned a though lesson, one i will never forget, churches are suppose to heal and not pour salt into our wounds, watch out for the hidden agenda. what are these people really all about, even with the many cd's i should have received with words from the prophets, i never received and complained to the staff many times over, only to get a porition of what i should have received and even after receiving cd's with a prophetic word for my life, the words i received had no truth to them, out of the many cd's and years of giving there may have been 5 words of truth in all. shame, shame on zoe ministries, they use the millions of dollars for their very own purposes and so called hope to africa. what about the people whoes money supports their ministries and may just need in a time of despair and down trodden economey call upon them. beware of this ministry, and church that claims to be of god and speaks the word of god, but does not live up to the whole word of god needs investigation.there is something not right with zoe. zoe says their mission is to fulfill god's dream, i would like to know what you call this?

"Warring" Zoe Ministries Rakes Funds and Turns Their Back

AUTHOR: Patricia - (U.S.A.)

Zoe ministries is a very cold, non caring organization without any regards to human life. today, January 18, 2010, less than three weeks of my asking the Bishop for help in putting a roof over my head, and having him respond; we are not set-up for that (meaning missions), oh but i see they are set-up for collecting as much money as any one person can give them single handed. this prophet had the audacityto write and ask me to sow a seed of $318. heal the family seed by credit card, or send your check or money order in the enclosed envelope so that God begin working your 30 days of miracles and begin to heal your family. knowing that I am homeless and need a hand up, which he has not given back to me up to this present time, a person like this has no compassion for human life and does not know what it means. if i had $318.00 i would use it toward rent and security which are my immediate needs, and as long as i don't get the help, i will continue living in the street. these are people who claim to hear words coming from the Lord (ha, ha) what lord are they hearing from, the lord of greed and selfishness or some of those demonic african spirits posing as spirits of light and truth. the word of god tells me to try the spirit by the spirit and see if it be of God. Mathew 25: 41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:42For I was an hungry, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye diditnot to one of the least of these, ye diditnot to me.46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.got a word from the lord on this prophet, perhaps god has commissioned you to not help the poor, visit the sick, feed the hungry, which tells me your god can not be the god of abraham, Issac and Jacob, no way. Be warned, this is not a church of the living god, watch out folks, this is a business of some sort and i hope the internal revenue is taxing all their goods and if they are not paying taxes they should render unto Caesar the things that are Cesar's's and to God the the things that are God's.
