This is Joy Mifflin. She was a popular ‘evangelist’ who passed on yesterday of cancer.
This video was taken in 2010.
Mifflin had just tweeted at the beginning of October encouraging many to tune into the 2012 Presidential Debates, and sending her love to her ‘pastor,’ Pastor Sheryl Brady from the Jakes Affiliation.
A little over a month later, Joy was on life support/respirator, and taken off…only to die on November 9. She was 33 years old.
She lost a 7 year battle to breast cancer.
Prayer requests were petitioned on her behalf as she lay on life support the day before she passed, asking God to heal and restore her.
This reminds me of another story of a young woman who received ‘prayer’ for healing and died soon thereafter…the late wife of gospel artist Marvin Sapp, Dr. MaLinda Sapp.
After her husband requested around-the-clock prayer for his wife, who was battling colon cancer, she succumbed in September 2010 to the debilitating disease.
A few weeks before in August 2010, Marvin Sapp had requested prayer for MaLinda, who was diagnosed with colon cancer the year before but was declared ‘cancer-free’ by doctors earlier that year. Apparently, the cancer had come back.
MaLinda died at 45 years old.
Dontavies Boatwright was a finalist on the popular gospel contest show, Sunday’s Best. He went on to record an album, become a radio announcer, and preached at several venues. He died of a heart attack yesterday as well, at the age of 33.
(I want yall to notice that he was an avid tongue speaker in the above video)
And probably the most well-known of these is the late David Wilkerson. One of the TRUE endtime prophets of this age.
In April 2011, David Wilkerson and his wife Gwen were involved in a car accident that claimed David’s life first.
Gwen would die a little over a year later in July of this year, presumably from grief and injuries she sustained in the car crash with a tractor trailer that claimed the life of her beloved husband of 58 years. She was 81….he was 79.
David Wilkerson was the pastor of Times Square Church, the founder of Teen Challenge Ministry and author of ‘The Cross and The Switchblade.’
Another gospel couple who died in like manner as the Wilkersons are the Wrights, the late gospel artist Timothy Wright and his wife Betty and his 14 year old grandson, D.J.
The family was driving home when they were hit head on by a drunk driver. The crash killed Betty, 58, and D.J. instantly.
Timothy Wright died of his injuries (and probably grief) almost a year later in 2009. He was 61 years old.
(I was particularly fond of Wright’s music, and was saddened to hear of his untimely death and that of his family….)
I can go on and on….we hear stories of premature death (in the church setting) ALL the time.
No one bothers to say anything about it and automatically conclude that ALL PREMATURE death(s) in the church are the will of God. We religiously say that it is God’s business who He ‘decides to take home’ and when.
And while I can wholeheartedly agree that only God knows when our time is up, NO ONE can make me believe that EVERY death is God’s will.
There is something going on here!
I want to share something with you that my mentor, Pamela Sheppard, made me realize.
The religious demon LOVES to mock those who are within its ‘jurisdiction,’ if you will.
The religious demon loves to cause ‘accidents,’ diseases, and the such that will take out REAL believers.
There are some things that are NOT supposed to happen. Like that guy in Creflo’s church who was praying at the altar and was gunned down!
How can ANYONE make that right? How can anyone explain that away, saying it was the ‘will of God’ for this man to be shot to death…WHILE HE WAS PRAYING? TO OUR GOD????
That makes absolutely NO sense to me!
39 year old McDowell took 5 bullets while praying to God….while sitting in a church! He was in the production department and in maintenance at famous megachurch World Changers International of College Park, GA, pastored by Creflo Dollar. The shooter was a former maintenance worker of WCCI. There is still no motive for the shooting at this time.
Does anyone else here see a trend?
It seems to me that premature death is fast becoming yet another plague that is plaguing the organized church, just like premature death took the firstborn in Egypt after GOD released the 10 plagues as judgment against Pharaoh and the Egyptians’ disobedience.
I also want to make it known that most of these people were tongue talkers!
We have written before on how the enemy uses tongues to release curses upon themselves and the ones they love…without even realizing it!
All those prayer requests requesting prayer, from TONGUE TALKERS?
Let me share something with you: I am not of the crew that speaks ill of people who don’t know any better. And having come out of that crowd of pentecostals/charismatics, I understand ALL TOO WELL the error they operate in. I understand the love affair and deception that is latent in the doctrines of speaking in tongues. I understand how people can hold on to that doctrine for dear life, even when it hasn’t produced any (lasting) fruit, and caused illness, calamity, sickness and in some cases, even premature death!
But it will take the Spirit of the Living God to reveal this to many.
I won’t say you should come out of the church. You need to hear that from GOD for yourself.
But I will say this much:
Recognize what is going on around you and do NOT ignore those tiny urgings from the Spirit of God when HE warns you about things, or people, or groups, or churches, or affiliations. If GOD tells you to hold off on the tongues, DO IT!
In THIS season, it can literally be a matter of life, or death.
