TRINITY LIFE CHURCH LEICESTER AND OPEN HANDS: THE EMPTINESS OF WORLDLY ACCOLADES

You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4)

Open Hands Trust was established in 2006 by Trinity Life Church (TLC) in Highfields Leicester, an Assemblies of God Pentecostal denomination. In May 2009, Open Hands opened a Compassion Centre in a nearby converted garage.{1} Four years later, in 2013, they received a huge boost to their finances (£446,626), as part of the lottery's Reaching Communities project, Shelter Housing Aid and Research Leicester (Sharp).

Helping disadvantaged people is of course biblical. (Luke 12:33-34). However, in the past, I have questioned the WAY in which the leaders TLC have gone about their so called charitable deeds. With grants, gifts etc. there is little personal cost or risk to the leaders who run Open Hands more as a business than a charity. A few years ago, I expressed concerns about the problematic ethical implications of TLC's lottery grant being due to the proceeds of gambling. (2 Peter 2/2). Not least of course, a requirement of receiving lottery funding was that TLC must DEMONSTRABLY “believe and abide by” secular equality values. Such an undertaking was at complete variance with the scriptures!{2} Open Hands seem to have gone from strength to strength in worldly terms, and they have expanded dramatically since they received their thirty pieces of silver. (Zechariah 11:12; Matthew 26:15, 27:9).

Earlier this year, Open Hands Trust received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. It would be very interesting to know who actually nominated Open Hands for this award. I have in fact asked the question, but apparently this nformation cannot be released due to data protection laws!{3} The word "cronyism" is certainly not an alien concept to TLC, as graphically evidenced by David Hind, their pastor, and also their former director and trustee, Adam Simmonds, during his period as PCC of Northamptonshire!{4} Why are TCL wasting their time chasing after worldly gain and honours? (Philippians 3:19).

TLC's infamous 6 Degrees Coffee House also joined in with the award celebrations with their "Queen's award cake". This coffee house is yet another troubling TLC anomaly.  Is anyone else wondering about TLC's occult logo and the three sixes in plain sight on the front of their coffee house? (Revelation 13:18). {5} 6 Degrees has strong associations with Satanism and the Temple of Set - it is anything but Christian!

Let us be honest for a few minutes shall we?

Before we all get too excited, and when David Hind and TLC have finished fawning over "Her Majesty", perhaps we should remember that amongst other things, this is the woman who signed the Abortion Act in 1967 and the Equal Marriages Act in 2013. One might wonder about TLC's motives in flattering the Queen, when in the process they turn a blind eye to things which they should abhor: loving the praise of men more than the praise of God. (John 12:43; cf. Romans 16:18. With flattering lips and with a double heart they speak. May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, The tongue that speaks great things; (Psalm 12:2-3; cf. Psalm 5:9; Psalm 55:20-21; Psalm 62:4) 

I am reminded of King Baudouin of Belgium, who stated in 1990 that he could not sign into law a bill permitting abortion without violating his conscience. "In April 1990 Baudouin 'abdicated' for a day, rather than sign a government bill liberalising the law on abortion. 'Does freedom of conscience apply to everyone except the King?' Baudouin asked with uncharacteristic public emotion in a letter to parliament."{6}

"When the Queen signed the Royal Assent for the Equal Marriages Act, allowing gay people to marry for the first time, she put it down and said ‘Well, who’d have thought 62 years ago when I came to the throne, I’d be signing something like this? Isn’t it wonderful?’”{7}

There are many theories about the Royal Family and their various Luciferian associations on the Internet. I do not know, and I do not want to know, what these people do in secret. (Ephesians 5:12). However, it is a stretch too far, and we simply cannot swallow the lie that the Queen is a true Christian when we are in possession certain indisputable facts. For instance, antithetical to true faith in Jesus Christ, the Queen became initiated into the Druids in 1946. These are the kind of activities that anyone professing "biblical faith" should be ashamed. (Romans 6:21).

Other famous Druids include the Queen Mother, Prince Charles, former Archbishop Rowan Williams and Winston Churchill. It is hardly necessary to state the Druids affiliation with paganism.


  
"Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) in a robe of green is led by an acolyte to Archdruid Crwys Williams, who will initiate her into the Mystic Circle of Bards at the national Eisteddfod, or festival, at Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, Wales, August 6, 1946."{8}


Albert and Elizabeth, the Duke and Duchess of York, in druidic robes at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Swansea. They are the future King George VI and Queen Elizabeth of England.

Can we assume from their support of the Queen, that the leadership of TLC concur with the Abortion Act in 1967, the Equal Marriages Act in 2013.. and do TLC also concur with druidic beliefs, including witchcraft, reincarnation or worse? Those who do such things are an abomination to the Lord. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12; Leviticus 20:6; Galatians 5:19-21). The sin of guilt by association is repeatedly emphasised in the scriptures: ..what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14-17; Ephesians 5:6-7; Titus 3:10-11; Romans 16:17)

The Order of the Garter and its association with Freemasonry.. from the horses mouth: 

It is impossible to divorce the Order of the Garter from Freemasonry: ".....the Order includes the Queen, who is Sovereign of the Garter, several senior Members of the Royal Family, and twenty-four knights chosen in recognition of their work."{9}" The order of the Garter was formed as a royal order of knights of the highest degree of England in the 1300s. It was designed to infuse the Arthurian values into the 24 people closest to the monarch of England, as their very own round table. In England, there has traditionally be no higher honor."{10} This link shows that a large number of Grand Masters of English Freemasonry have also been Knights of the Garter. The Order of the Garter is said to be the parent organisation over Freemasonry. Worldwide, the garter is of course a symbol of witchcraft.{11} Not only is the Queen widely reported to be the Grand Patroness of Freemasonry, her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, became a Freemason in 1953, the same year as the coronation. He is a member of Navy Lodge No 2612 in London.{12}
Young Queen Elizabeth - Nazi Salute

Which "king" does the Queen actually serve?

The questionable book: "The Servant Queen and the King She Serves" produced by ecumenical Hope Together attempts to convince us that the Queen has "biblical faith". David Hind in fact re-tweeted the HOPE Twitter message congratulating the Queen on her 90th birthday in April: "Happy 90th Birthday Your Majesty! May God bless you for all your faithfulness to Him."{13} 

Hind clearly continues his attachment to the ecumenical camp/agenda following on from his pivotal role in Churches Together Men's Fellowship Breakfast in 2014.{14} Is biblical faith compatible with paganism and ecumenism? We should not forget that Satan masquerades as an "angel of light" appearing as one thing, but in reality quite another. (2 Corinthians 11:14). The Queen refers to "Jesus" as "an anchor in my life and a role-model."{15} She makes many innocuous references to "Jesus", and yet she has never declared His exclusivity as the only way to the Father. (John 14:6). There are too many contradictions in the Queen's associations and actions that belie her confession of biblical faith. The "Jesus" she serves is not compatible in any sense with biblical Christianity. (2 Corinthians 11:4). Similarly, the tragic demise of TLC's spiritual condition is evidenced by too many contradictions so as to belie their own claim to genuine biblical faith. Their nod towards ecumenism and their negligence in preaching the true gospel of Jesus Christ are obvious red flags. (1 Corinthians 9:16). Though they appear to be doing many "good works", if TLC are genuine, they let their "light shine under a bushel" very well.. (Matthew 5:14-16).

The quest for the world's approval is nothing less than spiritual harlotry according to the scriptures. Those who seek worldly accolades have not understood that genuine faith in Jesus Christ is antithetical to, and involves a rejection of, worldly values and other faiths. In my early years as a Christian, TLC consisted of a small shabby building on a bomb site in a very poor area.. we were nothing and we had nothing at all in worldly terms, and yet we were rich (Revelation 2:9). I felt exceptionally blessed and unworthy to attend such an assembly at that time. Tragically, all the sacrifice, the giving and work that has gone into TLC over the years has resulted at best in nothing more than a successful worldly operation. At worst, TLC is a thinly disguised Luciferian operation being directed by the spirit of Antichrist. I would be ashamed to attend TLC now, and I am very thankful that the Lord opened my eyes and led me out of it. (Revelation 18:4).

It is very sad to see that Andrew Upton, the pastor of of Knighton Free Church, has publicly congratulated Open Hands on their Award. Open Hands is listed as a partner of KFC on their website and Upton regularly associates with TLC apostates. No relief from the falling away there either I am afraid. (2 Thessalonians 2:3).{16}



I warn my readers not to trust TLC and their friends. It is my firm conviction that they do not serve the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth.. (John 4:24) 

And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11-15)

I know absolutely nothing about the Open Hands Trust, or TLC (apart from the fact that in order to receive, as you put it, they MUST compromise), but I DO know that anyone with a good basic grasp of the Bible will know that there were "good" and "wicked" monarchs. The monarchy is a God ordained institution, make no mistake about this-I am no republican. Today, so many are deceived by our "favourite grandmother", but, I for one would not want to be in her shoes on judgment Day (unless of course she comes to true repentance): wickedness has increased exponentially in the period of her reign. To mock God by saying "isn't it wonderful" after signing same sex marriage into law (David Cameron's crowning achievement as PM!) speaks volumes about the spiritual condition of Her Majesty.

Many 'Christians' mistakenly think that they are being blessed by God because they have been showered with finances (RTV being a case in point!) yet forget that Islamic's and other idolatrous individuals and nations, have had great financial 'blessings' as well! For God truly "maketh His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust" Matthew 5.45? These are but temporal blessings.
God bless.

I haven't previously seen those pictures of Her Majesty- but doesn't it explain a lot?

I do fear for those who have been taken in by TLC, RTV and the CofE etc. Colin. They are playing a very dangerous game. As you say, I wouldn't want to be in HM's shoes on judgement day. God bless.

Bella said...

Thankyou for this information. I live in Australia, but was born in England, and my parents (who are Anglican but not Christian) have never stopped going on about the Queen and how wonderful she is. Recently I have seen stuff by David Icke about the Royals, and have read various book excerpts and interviews regarding same from other sources.

This blog post however, in particular the pictures of the Queen being initiated into the Druidic religion is about as definitive as it gets. She is worshipping false idols, yet claims to be the head of the Church of England!!

I think the final nail is in the coffin for me. Thanks again for your research.

Treena Gisborn said...

Thank you Bella. There are all sorts of stories about the Royals on the internet. I have kept my post deliberately factual in order to make a credible argument against the false belief that HM is a biblical Christian. Similarly, no one in their right mind can attribute the actions of TLC as "Christian" either. God bless.

The on-line British Pathe News has archived footage of this historic and most anti-Christian event that took place in Mountain Ash in 1946. Strange why such an event as this is not mentioned at all on the Mountain Ash homepage on Wikipedia? Especially so soon after the second world war; where was the thanks due to the Almighty?

No doubt some will downplay all this wickedness as 'cultural', but we lesser mortals have been (mis) led into believing that Elisabeth 2nd is/was the "Defender of THE Faith"!
God bless.

Treena Gisborn said...

The whole thing is very disturbing Colin. God bless.

"Princess Elizabeth is invested as Honorary Ovate of the Gorsedd of the Bards of Wales at the National Eisteddfod of Wales 6 Aug 1946"

https://www.royalcollection.org.uk/collection/2002291/princess-elizabeth-is-invested-as-honorary-ovate-of-the-gorsedd-of-the-bards-of

Information on what precisely an "ovate" is can be found on..
http://www.druidry.org/druid-way/what-druidry/what-druidism/what-ovate

"Modern day Ovates are able to turn in this quest to a number of distinctly Druidic methods of divination, including working with the sacred animals of the Celtic and Druid tradition and working with Ogham, which has come to be known as the sacred tree-alphabet of the Druids. It is claimed that the Druids used Ogham for divination..."

colin said...

Without a doubt Druidism was the ancient indigenous religion of ancient Britain, and clearly it has never died out, and doubtless-increasingly thrives within nominal Christianity to this very day.
Upon HM's initiation, I wonder exactly, what vow/promise she recited to the Arch druid?

Druidism has no "writings", this is why little is known about it today. Druids "passed down" their 'knowledge' as it were by mnemonics, and maybe the initiated have faithfully passed their craft (divination, healing, herbalism, fortune telling etc) down to the present age, via an unseen spoken thread?

The average person would equate Druidism with witchcraft, and I believe they are one and the same thing (the Bible confirms this-"rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft" 1 Samuel 15.23). I think it true to say that Druidism exists within the "high places" of society, and is MOST certainly a part of the "spiritual wickedness in high places" in Ephesians 6.12.
There is much truth in what the Druids believe (we dismiss them as "nutters" to our peril); they hold that the souls of men are immortal, that "the realm of the Ancestors" does exist, borne out by Isaiah 14.16, and Luke 16.23 for example. Druids speak to the dead; "conversed with the Ancestors" a practice prohibited by God in NO uncertain terms!

With the advent of Christianity upon our shores Druidism went "underground". The Druids/Ovate's came to be known as the "Cunning Folk", in this they share much with the latter day Jesuits, they operated in the shadows, as it were.

Druidism is inextricably linked with mother earth worship/the green movement, the name "Druid" means literally "they who know the oak"! Mountain Ash where HM Queen was initiated is a place sheltered by high trees, oaks and others. The Bible condemns the worship of heathen gods "under every green tree", Deuteronomy 12.2, and a great many other verses.

For those who believe the present Queen is a Christian, they are so sadly deluded, the ungodliness she has presided over, without even scarcely a whimper, speaks for itself. Does it not?

These images shocked me to the core, I knew nothing about them beforehand. But don't they explain a lot?

God bless.

I found out quite a lot about the Druids when I did some research into Halloween a few years ago Colin.. it is absolutely satanic to the core.

The unsuitability of David Hind was very evident to me a long time ago... I just could not stomach his foolishness. I am surprised that others at TLC "put up with it easily enough." (2 Corinthians 11:4)

"And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved." (2 Thessalonians 2:10)

God bless

I wonder if queenie has a laptop, what would her thoughts be reading all this?
In times gone by, it might be 'Orf with your heads!'

Treena Gisborn said...

I wouldn't have been able to do such a thing in times gone by Anonymous. I doubt if I would have been taught to read in the Dark Ages! Thank God for the freedoms and the opportunities we have been given to expose the truth. Ephesians 5:11. God bless you.

Anonymous said...

Good answer!
But aren't we now sort of back in the Dark Ages?

Treena Gisborn said...

We are certainly heading that way Anonymous. God bless.
