Open sin cannot be tolerated in the Body of Christ, especially when it is present and visible within the leadership. It is our duty before God to expose corruption in the pulpit (Ephesians 5:11) and call those who have sinned to repentance.
Those who will not expose corruption, violate their responsibility towards God and are a partner to the damage done to our brothers and sisters.
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. – Hebrews 10:31
So, to my great sorrow, I must address the corruption found in Moriel Ministries and in particular, Jacob Prasch.

The Fall of Moriel and Jacob Prasch
NOTE: I like Jacob Prasch. We both lived in Israel for many years and have a love for Hebrew and the Jewish people. We both understand that we will experience the persecution of the Antichrist. We share a love for truth and a strong revulsion for heresy. And though we’d love to be able to say otherwise, we’re both as Jewish as a ham sandwich,
Furthermore, I’ve never suffered hurt or harm at the hands of Jacob, and I admire and respect his knowledge. So, I have no reason to seek any injury to Jacob or Moriel. Quite the opposite.
But, since a wolf is loose among the sheep…
I have been a Christian for almost 50 years and have seen almost every kind of corruption that it is possible to see in the Body of Christ. Adultery. Fornication. Theft. Laziness. Heresy. Greed. Dishonesty. Cowardice. Hatred. Fraud. Slander. Blasphemy. Worldliness. Gluttony. Pride. Arrogance. And yes, even murder.
Statistics show that the abortion rate among Christians is only a little lower than non-Christians. The divorce rate among Christians is only a little lower than non-Christians. And, half of all pastors admit (anonymously) to being regular consumers of pornography.
What do you think that God will do to us, if we don’t repent of these terrible sins?
And, if you think that it’s not happening in your church, think again.
The stories that I could tell about certain pastors would surprise the members of the churches that they lead. And, I’ve had to let most of them get away with what they’ve done. To my chagrin, I’ve discovered that there are limits to what Christians want to know about their leadership. Oh, and I discovered that pastors will use slander with great enthusiasm to protect themselves from impudent sheep.
Slander is a very popular activity among pastors – especially when they meet together to swap stories. The word that they use for that is ‘fellowship’, but they must be using a different dictionary than I do. However, my personal stories about corruption in the Body of Christ will need to wait for another time, since there is a public ministry that is in a downward spiral:
I ran into them in 2015 as I was trying to understand whether John MacArthur did actually say that you can take the Mark of the Beast and still go to heaven. The utter blasphemy of that statement was terrible, but I wanted to make sure that I was not falsely accusing John MacArthur. So, as I searched for evidence, I came across this video:
On the Mark: A Word to John MacArthur Part 1
I had no idea who the presenter was, and he had a somewhat awkward delivery. But, that was okay. The content was good. The production values were excellent. So, I ran with it. And, you can see what I wrote, here:
Fear, Desperation and Greed
There’s a lot more in the article, and it’s still awfully relevant in the most awful way. But, I want to draw your attention to something.
Studio Scotland – Stewart And Deborah Menelaws
The production values of that video, and many of the videos recorded around that time were very professional. Also, the dialogue and presentation was far better than other videos Prasch recorded. I didn’t think much about that at the time. But now that I’ve done some research, I know why that video was so good.
That video was recorded in 2014, when Jacob was working closely with Studio Scotland, which is owned and operated by Stewart and Deborah Menelaws. Stewart and Deborah had no idea that just four years later, the person who they’d worked so hard to help, would launch a years long campaign of false accusation, intimidation, libel and slander. Jacob and his minions even went as far as to threaten physical violence, and maybe… even murder. After years of abuse from Moriel, the Menelaws eventually decided to post a video rebuttal to the attacks that they were receiving:
Prasch – The Shameless Liar – an introduction
That’s from a series of videos that they and others have created to help describe the situation:
‘Jacob’ Prasch & Moriel
You’ll see some of those videos later in this article, but I want to bring you back to some things that Jacob Prasch himself said in the very first video that I presented to you. Just after the 2:30 mark, Jacob says this:
…but the behavior that can be engendered by people following a leader blindly can indeed be cultic. That puts the impetus on the leader to say [and] test all things, look to Jesus, hold fast to the Word of God. Take my word for nothing. Examine what I’m telling you in light of the Word of God.
– On the Mark: A Word to John MacArthur Part 1
How ironic. I’ve seen nothing but cultic behavior from the followers and officers of Moriel Ministries and Jacob Prasch himself. Anyone who dares to disagree with Jacob is crucified publicly by Prasch and his followers. The dirty tricks that I’ve seen them use are terrible.
That brings me to a second witness and victim of Jacob Prasch – Tim Wirth. He did a lot of videography for Jacob and also was responsible for some of the better videos outside of the Studio Scotland recordings. Unfortunately, Tim’s relationship with Jacob went south over what sounds like… well …a less-than-supportive attitude.
Tim said something Jacob didn’t like, so he was fired.
Tim was fine with that and went on to do other things to support himself and his dying wife. And, he was doing okay until the pandemic hit. The place that cared for his wife while he was working had to close, and Tim had to give up his job and start caring for his wife, full time.
That’s why he decided to create a Go Fund Me page, to raise a few thousand dollars so that they could survive as his wife was dying. But, somehow that wasn’t good enough for Jacob Prasch, Amos Farrell and Joshua Chavez. So, they published a hit piece on their Facebook page:
Here’s a man, caring for a dying wife, desperate to find some way to survive when all other avenues were closed. And, Moriel Ministries sought to harm this man in his hour of need. Worse, every single one of their claims against Tim was a lie. Every. Single. One.
Here’s the video that Tim had to make a year ago, to respond to the slanderous lies Moriel spread about him:
My Testimony-And how to handle bullies
For anyone to look at the suffering of a man who did nothing wrong to them, and then seek to destroy him…. It’s such an incomprehensible level of evil that I could not understand it, if I hadn’t experienced something similar. (Yes, I’ve been there, but more on that later) Such evil should never be named among us. But, it gets worse.
Because of their efforts to destroy Tim’s reputation, they were able to cause his Go Fund Me campaign to fail.
However, they did not succeed in destroying Tim. God helped him get through this. But even better, he did not succumb to bitterness. You can hear it in the tone of his voice. You can hear it in his desire that they be blessed. Then, a few days ago, Tim posted this:
Playing To Their Fan Base. Is Josh Chavez aka Malone lying or telling half-truths?
I have fast-forwarded the video to the eight minute mark, where Tim explains the obscene accusations that Joshua Chavez leveled at him. Josh accused Tim of ‘cyberflirting’ with other women, but failed to let us know that they were Tim’s daughters! If I had a daughter and told her that she was getting more beautiful with age, that would be a good thing, right?
Then, we find that Jacob Prasch and Joshua Chavez sought to accuse Tim of financial irregularities, but neglected to tell us that they were the result of someone having stolen Tim’s Social Security Number and racking up fraudulent debts – in the ’90s. They should have gotten a clue that there were no criminal judgments against Tim. But, Joshua Chavez didn’t seem to care about that little detail. And, we only know this, because Joshua Chavez just dragged Tim’s reputation through the dirt AGAIN, in his expose of Jacob.
By the way, before going on, here’s Tim’s Go Fund Me page:
I am an Alzheimer’s caregiver to my lovely wife Donna. We will need help now with additional hospital bills. Since the virus has hit and Easter Seals Day Care is closed I can no longer work part time. I understand this is a tough time for everyone. Please take care of your own families first. God will always provide. And thanks in advance for those who can give and or pray. Blessings-Tim and Donna
Jeolle – The Discarded Wife of Joshua Chavez (Servus Christi)
Tim’s second video showed us what Joshua Chavez and Jacob Prasch did to a young woman named Joelle – someone Joshua Chavez brought to America from South Africa. Joshua married her and then – three months later – discarded her. And since Joshua conveniently ‘failed’ to get any marriage certificate, there was nothing that Joelle could do, except return to South Africa in devastation.
Joshua made vows before God to be a good husband to Joelle, only to break those vows before God just three months later. And, we have records that Jacob Prasch supported Joshua’s abandonment of Joelle – that is, until they had their ‘falling out’. Now, Jacob claims that Joshua is unfit for ministry because of what he did to Joelle. This kind of flip-flop is classic for Jacob.
So, we have yet another victim of Jacob Prasch and Moriel. Please pray for Joelle. It is unbelievable for a man to claim to be Christian and do this to a woman. The darkness here is so very, very deep. But unfortunately, it gets worse.
Pastor Bill Randles
Up until a couple of years ago, Bill Randles was a close friend of Jacob Prasch and a partner with Moriel. That relationship with Jacob went well until Bill made a fatal error. He disagreed with Jacob about the treatment of the Menelaws and David Nathan. Disagreement with Jacob is apparently forbidden, and a smear campaign against Pastor Randles ensued.
Pastor Bill Randles responds to Slander of Jacob Prasch and Moriel
Pastor Randles is a good guy. There is absolutely no truth to the accusations made against him. But, the slander from Jacob Prasch and Moriel persists to this day.
What madness has taken over Jacob?
I don’t have a firm answer, but I do have suspicions – suspicions based upon decades of dealing with similar situations. But, more on that later. We’re still talking about Pastor Bill.
Here is Stewart Menelaws laying out the origins of Jacob’s hostility towards Bill Randles. He also brings in another victim of Jacob’s wrath – Pastor David Nathan.
Prasch the Liar Part 3 – Bill Randles talks to Stewart Menelaws
Pastor David Nathan
You will see from the above video that Pastor Nathan was completely blindsided by Jacob Prasch. There was absolutely no indication that there was anything wrong. And then, one day, Pastor Nathan woke up to find that he was now a liar and a foul heretic. David Nathan was vilified across social media and slandered everywhere as a purveyor of false doctrine.
When the Menelaws tried to help David Nathan bring some resolution to the conflict, Jacob excoriated the Menelaws and accused them of supporting terrible heresy. And, there was no heresy. None.
Here’s Pastor David Nathan himself – standing before his church – providing the best explanation that he could give:
David Nathan’s original defense against the slander of Jacob Prasch
A Crowd Of Witnesses
I could go on and on with one witness after another of what Jacob Prasch and Moriel have done. Mike and Pat Rogers. Jackie Alnor. Timothy Haver. Graham Baldwin. And now, the latest batch of insiders to be thrown out by Jacob – Amos Farrell and Joshua Chavez.
How many other witnesses do we need before we realize that we have a wolf among the sheep?
With all those witnesses and the public pronouncements of Jacob himself, there really isn’t a lot more to say – except one thing more. A couple days ago, Tim Wirth recommended that we watch a sermon given to a church in Britain, by a young (to me) street preacher who went to England to help share the Gospel with the lost. I saw that video, and it’s important for you to see it too.
The Snare of Pride – Ryan Schiavo
This sermon was given to Court Farm Evangelical Church on Sunday, June 27th, 2021:
The Snare of Pride – Ryan Schiavo
NOTE: The microphone he speaks into has a problem with sibilance, which means that ‘t’ and ‘d’ consonants often have an ‘ess’ on the end of them. He isn’t not saying ‘gods’ or ‘lords’.
Ryan talks about spiritual pride here, a little after the 50 minute mark.
The interesting thing is that Ryan was still able to deliver a good sermon, even though he was suffering badly from ‘Long Haul Covid’. It was a vital message, so I’m glad that he could still give it. But, notice something interesting:
The church had to turn off the ability to leave comments for this video.
Because Ryan was also talking about Jacob Prasch.
The followers of Moriel are so verbally violent that they forced the church to turn off the ability to leave comments. And, this seems to be universally true for almost any page, site or channel that is critical of Jacob. All the other videos on the Court Farm Evangelical Church channel have an open comment section.
They Need To Repent Before It’s Too Late
I could go on, but this is already long enough. These people need to repent and seek to undo the damage that they have done:
James ‘Jacob’ Aloysius Prasch
And, those are just the names that I know. These people know what happened. They must repent of their role and seek to undo the damage that they have done – even John Haller, who seems to be the least of the offenders in this list.
Don’t they know that God sees everything?
That they will receive double condemnation?
A Note About John Haller
Before going to you with this, I communicated some of my concerns with John Haller. He basically told me to drop this topic, that I had better things to do. He also said that he doesn’t pay attention to liars. Eventually, he said that he’d be willing to talk ‘off the record’ about this, but I refused.
We are way past the ability to be ‘off the record’ when it comes to this situation. And, it disturbs me that John Haller would seek to sweep this under the rug.
John Haller is an elder at Fellowship Bible Chapel. An elder is to be a guard for the flock, and not someone who defends the wolves who tear apart the sheep.
This is a problem, and John Haller has some explaining to do.
The Code Of Silence
God never meant for us to create a Code of Silence to protect sinful pastors and Bible teachers from exposure. When Paul was speaking to Timothy about Elders and those who teach the word of God, he said this:
Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.
Did you get that?
Elders and Bible teachers who commit grave sin are to be rebuked before EVERYONE.
And, let’s not forget this verse, either:
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
This code of silence practiced by our churches needs to stop, and I’ve been talking about this for a very long time. Stop protecting the corruption in the pulpit. It needs to end, and people like John Haller need to put on their big boy pants and end this obscenity.
And, while you are at it, stop the worship of Bible teachers. (And yeah, that’s a link. Click it.) It’s a good thing that I have such a ridiculous name. Few would want to venerate some guy named ‘Little’. Just remember that the Little things can be pretty important. Just sayin’.
So, John Haller, stop the Code of Silence.
Expose Jacob Prasch and his minions.
The corruption needs to stop.
Relevant Bible Verses
Here are some of the verses from the Bible that stand in condemnation of Jacob Prasch and those who support him (relevant words and phrases in bold):
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
3 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, 4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 5 useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.
11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.
12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”
8 Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; 9 not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing. 10 For “He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. 15 See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
“Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the Lord.
James ‘Jacob’ Aloysius Prasch is in danger of being a castaway. Where he will be for all eternity is now a question that we can no longer answer. For his sake, and for the sake of the Body of Christ, Jacob needs to repent and seek to undo the damage that he has done. This is not a light thing.
Eternity is at stake here for all who are connected to Moriel.
And, to add emphasis to what I have said, consider this rather frightening verse:
My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.
As a Bible teacher, the penalty for Jacob’s sins will be even HARSHER in the life to come. This is that serious.
Please Jacob, for your own good, repent while you still can.
Here are a couple more verses of vital importance:
For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
Without all of the fruit of the spirit, you have none of them. And, I fear that this is doubly true of Jacob and Moriel.

A Personal Testimony
For the first 20+ years of my Christian life, I sat under a mentor much like Jacob Prasch. This person brought me to Christ and helped me make my first steps upon the narrow way. For that, I am grateful. But, there comes a time when those who are young in Christ become mature in spiritual things. We begin to see problems that we did not see before. We begin to see that maybe not all is right.
When I voiced my concerns, my mentor and best friend changed. I became the enemy. A campaign of slander sprang up, seemingly overnight. For no apparent reason. Our church was destroyed, and my own family was torn apart. I was shattered.
As I sat amidst the tattered remains of my life, I began to see that I had been taught to be a cold-hearted Pharisee. Full of knowledge, but useless. True, I was taught to be what I was, but that didn’t change my need to have love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control – in other words, to be like Christ.
I had The Truth, but little of the Fruit of the Spirit.
However, God is faithful, and did not leave me broken. I sometimes feel the pieces rattle about inside, and it still hurts. But, God is good, so I’ll be fine.
My old mentor is a more quiet version of Jacob Prasch, and I fear greatly for them both.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

Jacob Prasch exhibits absolutely classic narcissistic behavior. Full stop.
And he’s surrounded by flying monkeys.
May you and the missus be blessed and may He grant you peace while you await the developments there in Taiwan.
Absolutely. And, I never knew that there was a term called ‘spiritual narcissism’. In fact, there are so many flavors, that you just can’t choose one. This is all very sad, but a tale that we all need to take to heart, because WE could one day become just like Jacob. Thanks, Dave. – JL
There’s an excellent video on my playlist (link at the end of this post) though you need to scroll down a few, to find “Narcissism in Ministry”. The title is white on a black background and is very helpful. Prasch ticks every single box – it’s uncanny.
My website which kicked off his threats to me is at http://www.bethelcommunications.tv
May God somehow be glorified in all this and may even more of the captives be set free.
Our church has several zoom groups where some of them are being discipled – no matter how long they’ve been in the road – and brought back to the love of God that is in Christ Jesus – and a deeper understanding of The Word, with support where required, to help them never to be deceived again.
All glory to God!
Hi Deborah Menelaws,
To those who might see this later, here’s the video being referred to:
Narcissism in Ministry
That is a fantastic video that I just watched all of. But, back to you, Deborah.
I must admit that when I first went through your list videos, I only watched a small part and moved on because I was trying to verify the growing body of evidence of Jacob’s inappropriate actions. Now that I’ve watched all of it, I now have a southwest London accent stuck in my head. (rah!)
So, I can now say that everyone should watch that video, especially those who are in positions of responsibility within their own churches. I have run into so much of this, that I feel like I need to assume that a pastor is a narcissist until I find evidence to the contrary, and that’s not a good attitude to have.
Most important of all, to those who have been victims of narcissism, Duncan’s recommendation for healing is absolutely spot on. That was the only way that I was able to break free from what was done to me, and it has been the advice that I have given for the past 20 years. It was almost as if he was reading my mind and then putting it into his own words. Of course, there’s a large, decades-long body of work that helped me come to that understanding.
James Jacob Aloysius Prasch is a tortured human being facing an uncertain eternity. I truly feel sorry for him, his family and all who have been damaged by him. The only hope for him starts with repentance, and I have seen very, very few people like him do that.
Thank you, Deborah, for continuing to stand. It has been a hard road for both you and Stewart, but I am glad that you have not been broken by it. God knows our struggles and suffering, and crown awaits all who persevere.
Yours in Christ,
Hi John, What alerted me to the reality of what Prasch was about was a very challenging study on the Book of Proverbs. I have read proverbs quite a lot but to my shame I hadn’t really paid close attention to what it says we must do. Often we can become so familiar with the scripture that we overlook what it is saying. Proverbs tells us to seek to understand it as if we are searching for treasure. This is something for close on 20 years I have failed to do to my shame. If one is searching for treasure then they tend to devote every moment they can to it, and yet here is something far more important than all the gold and silver in existence and yet we perhaps read it a few times and sometimes will quote it. Eventually I did what it says and for about 6 months I read it over and over again every day, over and over. It became apparent that although God wants us to understand the dark sayings of this book He keeps it very tightly shut. We have to be asking and if need be begging him to open it up to us, to keep searching out this incredible treasure. God testing us to see if we are serious and really do want to understand. I am certainly not saying I understand it all, not by a long way but it really opened my eyes to people like Prasch and what he is really about. As a result of the scriptures I could see that Prasch felt threatened by David Nathan as he was becoming more and more popular with Prasch’s followers and as a result he had to be taken down. Like a mafia hitman. But if we had been paying attention from the start because the signs are always there. Our Lord warns us not to trust in men, not necessarily because they are trying to deceive but usually are themselves deceived.
The good thing is that God is merciful and knows our heart. He will direct all who seek Him, and it sounds like you are one of those people, Adrian. Keep up the good work! – JL
Prasch’s obsession with me, stalking me, doxxing me, cloning my websites and sending death threats to me, started more than 3 years ago because of my research into his nefarious practices which revealed him to be a dangerous personality cult leader, with an adoring following consisting mainly of those new or weaker in their faith, with little Biblical knowledge and / or unable to discern or judge the fruit of The Spirit.
My aim is to rescue as many as have eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to perceive what spirit is at work in that man. He took down (1) the head of Intercessors for Britain and (2) the woman who ran a ministry teaching Churches about the cults and the dangers of the occult entering the Church and (3) a well loved pastor / author, as well as several others who had done nothing wrong, other than to reveal his wickedness.
If he couldn’t find a perceived sin or wrong doctrine, he made up whatever stories he could, that would ensure his followers wouldn’t read or watch their reports about him.
He can stare right into the camera lens and lie without blinking.
He drove at least 2 women to the edge of suicide, and bullied at least 5 more we know of into seeking serious help.
He came after me with a vengeance, when I ignored his initial threats and refused to shut up or back down – despite me being a wimp at heart – because it broke my heart to see what he was doing to the brethren.
I lost my health, my ministry and my reputation – and almost lost my life, to the extent that the police were called in.
The link below to my website at Bethel Communications where I’ve ministered, sounding the alarm and communicating truth since the late 1980s explains it all.
However, James Aloysius Prasch junior – his real name – as you say, he’s as Jewish as a ham sandwich, despite lying about that for many years, only mentions the studios where I work unpaid so that we have the finances to make Christian programmes without asking for donations.
Studio Scotland is a production company, which produces commercials and educational films in order to fund our ministry of producing Christian Documentaries.
Prasch does all he can NOT to mention the ministry at Bethel Communications (www.bethelcommunications.tv) nor the free web TV network we founded 16 years ago called Global Vision TV which has 25 channels of sound teaching from experts in various subjects – which my husband Stewart and I provide for The Body of Christ (www.globalvision.tv)
Prasch MUST ensure his followers don’t find me / us in case they discover my research which exposes some of his incredible sins.
From dozens of lies about himself and over 120 lies about other people, he is absolutely disqualified from ministry, not least because of his heresy about ‘the metatron is the only one who saves’.

Let me know if you have any questions.
In His service and at yours, and all in The Name of The Lord Jesus Christ,
I’m so sorry for what you and Stewart went through. And again, I would not understand your situation if I had not gone through something similar with a quieter version of Jacob.
Also, I would never have found your site and those videos, were it not for Joshua Chavez. He made me start looking for other proof, so here we are. For all of Joshua’s apparent sins, we can thank him for that.
By the way, I took a moment to highlight a couple things in your comment in bold. As much as we desire for a Bible teacher to be honest and preach truth, we are even more interested in protecting precious brothers and sisters from harm. What you and these others have suffered is an abomination. This is an evil so vile, that few Christians would understand if, if they haven’t experienced it themselves – which is one of the ways that Prasch gets away with it.
This grieves me greatly, and I wish that there was something more that I could do than just throwing out some links and text. Lord willing, there will be a further update as more information comes in. When I finish my books, I will probably rewrite all of this and put up a video.
May God bless you and Stewart and give you peace. God will see you through.
Yours in Christ,
As a victim of James Aloysius Prasch Jr’s (JAP) libel and slander for nearly three years, I was informed by my specialist counsellor in spiritual abuse, without whom I don’t think I’d be here, that JAP displays the traits of the Dark Triad, e.g. narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy.
There are some who so traumatised by his abuse that they are unable to verbalise it. I was speaking to one such yesterday evening who, like me, is profoundly grateful to you, John, for bringing this hugely distressing and longstanding matter to light.
He is a hugely damaged individual; my heart goes out to his wife and children.
Hi Sally Richardson,
Dark Triad. I hadn’t heard that term in years, but it exactly fits the character of James Aloysius Prasch – aka, Jacob. And in a sense, it is a good thing that he has lost self control, because we might not have ever discovered the darkness at the heart of Moriel, otherwise. If he had just kept his temper under control and held back at lashing out at those who disagreed with him, he would have coasted through the rest of his life, feeding off of the ‘gravy train’ that Moriel has turned into.
It now appears that JAP has been engaged in something that we call ‘charity fraud’ in the US. The question is whether the authorities will actually investigate these allegations. That would require some positive action on the part of Moriel donors, or someone on the inside with access to hard evidence. So, I don’t know if that will happen.
Whatever the case, I don’t see how Moriel survives. Hopefully, a healthier, more Christ-centered organization will rise to take its place.
I hate the thought of all the people that he’s harmed. Wounds like that take a very, very long time to heal. We have been damaged at the very core of who we are, and the pain is terrible. But, I am a walking, talking example that God can heal those wounds. So, I am confident that God will see JAP’s victims through this.
And yes, when I started to see what JAP was, my first thought was to his family. No one survives unscathed when you have a ‘Dark Triad’ for a parent – or are married to one.
God bless you, Sally. Keep up the good work!
Yours in Christ,
I trust you and Mrs Little are both safe and well.
I must admit I know little of Moriel ministries, and had never heard of Jacob. But what you have presented both saddens me, and reinforces my belief that the Lord has allowed these trying times to separate the sheep from the goats within His church. So many believers are being led down deceptive paths because they do not know what is in the Bible, they only know what they have been taught about the Lords word.
The love of money is the root of all evil, and I can but wonder how that has caused Jacob to defy the Lord ways so. Fear of loss of respect? Fear of loss of adoration? Fear of loss of income if people find out….. we are likely to never know. But the truth will come out, Luke 8:17 “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be made known and brought to light.” It will come out, and how many good Christians will question their faith because of it….
But this seems to be a sign of the times. I was just listening to Tony’s latest a minute to midnight video regarding a prayer given by General Flynn before a church. A new age prayer presented as Christian… A prayer associated with the 7 mountain mandate. A false theology which seems to be slowly spreading its tentacles into more and more churches. Even Greg Hunter of USA Watchdog has been spreading this via his guest Bo Polny. I don’t know if Greg is aware, he may well be an innocent party. But Bo’s end times timeline is clearly influenced by the 7 mountain mandate (he even references it in his PDF). I can’t help but wonder if this theology is where he gets the idea America has a covenant with God…
But I got off topic again. Thank you for putting this information out; while none of us are perfect it is clear that Jacob and those around him have an agenda at play. What and why remain to be understood, but it clearly is not based in righteousness.
Bless you brother
The Lords Grace preserve you.
Thank you, Peter. You understand the point. Corruption is common and easy to fall into, and we must be on guard against it. And, as the world becomes darker and more sinful, it is easier and easier to be drawn away from the way of Christ. May God keep us all safe from such a terrible outcome. – JL
I’m no expert, but I’ve come across Metatron in various writings, usually connected with the Kabbalah, occultism, magick and Masons. Metatron is a well known character in the occult world, thought to be an archangel. Metatron’s cube is an occultic symbol used in sacred geometry. This alone would explain JAP’s dark dealings. He’s stepped into a world he has no business in as a Christian – a captured soul – unless he repents.
As for Chavez, one word comes to mind: toady.
When you live around the Ultra Orthodox long enough, you start to hear their stories. One of them is that anyone who studies the Kabbalah before the age of 40, will go insane. That indicates something demonic to me, which might explain JAP’s mental and emotional state. And yes, repentance of this is absolutely vital if there is to be any hope for James/Jacob. Excellent point, Sally. – JL
I’m glad you tie John Haller into this. Despite my many misgivings about Haller’s Bible knowledge vs knowledge of doctrines (much like Prasch), Haller’s support for Prasch gave me reluctance to call out Prasch as a “false teacher” when God revealed to me so obviously that Prasch, like Chavez, demonstrates a “wrong heart” toward men and God. Haller should not come out of this unscathed, he is little different than the other two but popular enough that people like me were sinfully loathe to recommend Christians away from their ministries.
Much better than Haller’s updates are those of Brandon Holthaus from Rock Harbor Church of Bakersfield, CA. apparently, since being on Jan Markell’s show RHC has rocketed to one of the top 100 ministries on itunes.
Here’s another youtube/vimeo/rumble channel that compiles the best of the prophecy scene (and notably, leaves out Haller): https://www.prophecyupdate.com/
I’m afraid that Brandon Holthaus holds to a pretrib rapture. Most of my friends are pretribbers, but their ‘prophecy updates’ wouldn’t be something to listen to. However, they are still good brothers in Christ and are sharing the gospel of our Lord and Savior. Thanks, tom. – JL
John just had Brandon at his church a couple weeks ago to speak. They are great friends and teach well together.
” Repent is the START ……. ”
Repent simply means ; rethought , rethink ,
with great anguishing in despair ,
change in the heart of mind
… until you ” Repent ” you will not turn any direction ,
you will only continue in and on your current way .
If not …, then PERISH …
Perish simply means ; to be rendered not usable for the intended purpose …
Yahusha said to him,
“I am the Way,
and the Truth, and the Life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.
MARANATHA ……. The Repent Guy
Yup. Well said. We all need to be doing this. Constantly. To a different point, as someone who does speak Hebrew, your use of ‘Yahusha’ is not the name that Jesus would have been called. Israeli Christians refer to Jesus as Yeshua, and archeology and historical documents back up this usage. – JL
Thanks, brother for the support. The thing I said to Prasch that was the beginning of the end was when I told him per email about his attempts to bully me. Here is what I said.
“Again I forgive you
And your a good friend and I love you all dearly in the Lord.
But being a bully never flies with me.
Tim end quote.
Here was Praschs reply (after speaking to me on Skype in full view of about 30 Moriel supporters. He was in a total rage and his email shows how he will not even own his own temper. Here is Prasch’s reply

First off all, I was not angry at anyone. You completely misread me.
My only anger was towards the Israelis for the way they were treating a Christian girl.
(My comment-the fact was that out of a party of around 30 the Masad pulled out 1 girl to ask questions too. Pretty standard stuff for large parties on vacation. Jacob called me on Skype and I let him know about what was going on. Prasch wanted to talk to them in Hebrew which was dumb because they spoke English anyway. Allison Dodd who ran Moriel UK let me know and I quote “Tim don’t you dare let that maniac anywhere near the Masad”.-end my comment)
I was wanting to know if I could speak to someone in Hebrew to help the situation given the stress
Allison has been under and the apparently scared state of this girl Rachel with the problem.
That is all.
Secondly, I needed to arrange a different filming time which is difficult given the logistics.
No one spoke to you rudely. I regret if out appeared that way. The notion of
treating you as if you were an enemy is frankly absurd.
Also absurd however is your statement that ‘nothing is urgent for you”.
except to enjoy your vacation.
While I appreciate the stress of your ill wife, it was my understanding that you are in
Israel to film, not for a vacation. (my comments yes they gave me a free vacation in order to give me some time off my caregiving of Donna. This was arranged by David Lister the man behind the curtain for Moriel. I told David I was bringing my camera to get the production value of spots in Israel that Prasch would talk about. Prasch then put me back on the clock with Moriel and demanded we do Prophecy Updates etc..I had already told James that the wife in Israel was not very good and I needed rest because of the time change. Plus I would be out on the tours Moriel paid for so I would not have the time or wifi to film Prasch while gone. James was aware that wifi was bad in Israel because he had tried broadcasting to me in America when he was in Israel and it just did not work. We did try once and the wifi kept dropping and Prasch was really inccessed.-end my comment)
No matter where I am – Bulgaria, Israel, Asia , the Moriel TV
ministry and especially the weekly update is always urgent.
I will need to prayerfully consider my further response.
(my comment-What Prasch really meant is that they were working already on bringing Josh Chavez in this was just an excuse to do it. Even though it did not happen until August of that year when I asked for some time off because Donna was on some new meds and she was up a lot at night. Lister and Prasch said of course and then after I gave Josh the passwords to all the channels etc.. They locked me out without even a single email to tell me why. end my comment)
Now as far as John Haller is concerned is he states he doesn’t listen to liars but Linda MacIntrye still does moderator duties for Haller on YouTube. Linda could have been sued by me for slander and defamation but I did not. Linda is known for lying about people all over the internet, has a number of fake IDS and IP addresses. And has even stated publically that she got a restraining order for whatever reason against me. That’s a total lie because you have to go to court for a restraining order so both parties can tell their side and that never happened. Plus Linda lives close to 2000 miles away. Plus Linda has suggested to the public that I am interested in her which is not only false but gross. I love my wife and am not interested in any other woman. There is something wrong with Linda.
So Haller listens to the liars he chooses to that suit his purpose and do his dirty work for him. Linda has been complained about to FBC and the requests have been ignored.
It’s my opinion that Haller like what chaos Linda does to his perceived enemies
Thank you again for posting out Go Fund Me (Josh Chavez and Dean Gibson along with Linda MacIntyre arranged this spoof YouTube page which was meant to hurt Donna and I finacially.
Blessings in Jesus
New video coming up an in-depth look at David Lister (The Man Behind The Curtain At Moriel)
Thank you, for that update, Tim. May you and your wife be blessed, and may understanding and repentance come from all of this. – JL
Thank you my friend and have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Blessings in Jesus
