Exhibit #10

WARNING: YOUR IQ MIGHT LOWER AFTER READING/LISTENING TO WELLS’ SERMON!

Uploaded to Youtube 5th June, 2011:

This video has been downloaded so if it’s removed we’ll put it right back up.

Moderator’s Note:
The content of this talk by Wells is so theologically flawed that we feel we must address some of our concerns regarding it. However we will do that over time. For the purpose of this Exhibit #10 at this time we wish to attend to the false personal claims which are contained in it about which Wells’ sister was invited to comment. However, this is a transcription of the video and it will become quickly apparent when one reads it, just how garbled and self-serving it is. Readers would do well to read the complete transcript where she even belittles the abilities of Oprah Winfrey in an attempt to build herself up. This message has nothing to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Video Transcript:
5:31 Everson introduces Wells.

“And now Amanda. I was with Amanda a couple of weeks ago in Toronto. And it was great to see Amanda in Toronto. Come along, I’m not going to take any more of your time…………. we love her dearly….

[Wells goes to stage and the two embrace.]

5:51 [Wells begins to arrange her “products” on the lectern which is her established behaviour before she begins to speak on every occasion. She begins to speak but there is no sound. Woman climbs to stage and draws Well’s attention to the fact that her microphone is not turned on then bends to lift Well’s coat and attend to the microphone. Stifled giggling from audience during awkward silence……]

Wells now has sound.

6:10 “Whoo…. there we go. [Continues looking down and busily rearranging her books on the lecturn] Ah…wha….what a couple of weeks. I was in Toronto with Pastor Les, and..ah… what a time, and then I came home last week… ah…. I got home Wednesday and then Thursday our daughter-in-law went into labour… with our first grandchild. She finally 69 hours later decided to HAVE the baby. It was the longest baby I’ve ever………… I was over it by then. You kno………… and then ………so I’ve just become a grandmother and then I was on a flight again and we’re um…….. with ah…. Robin and eh…. I love Robin …….. she’s…… she travels with me…. um ….. to Italy. She’s the only one who can …cop the pace in Italy. So we’re off to Italy this week.

[Note that for this entire time since appearing on stage Wells has been looking down and rearranging papers and books on the lectern and has chosen not to yet look up at her audience. Wells eventually finishes fiddling with her books.]

6:49 “But it’s such an honour to be back here and I know that you have all been on such a journey…. but it’s not an end…. it’s a beginning. And this is an awesome time to be alive. And this church is growing ….. to just see the seed… that is coming in this church is absolutely amazing. I love it you know tonight I’ve got….. I’ve got a bit of a word for the church and I’ve also got a word for a few people. But because of time constraint this morning I don’t want to do that… I’ll do it tonight. And so if you don’t come and I’ve got one for you tonight……..well….eh.eh… .. well…you miss out ……….you know …. but anyway…….. I’ve ah ……………… ah..we’ve got a few things up here………..

[Wells has now started to fiddle with her “products” on the lectern again……. Now as she speaks she holds her “products” up for the audience to see. As with every Wells’ appearance note that she begins again by peddling her “products” prior to speaking.]

Transcriber’s NOTE:
Matthew 21:12-13 English Standard Version (ESV) Jesus Cleanses the Temple 12 And Jesus entered the temple[a] and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. 13 He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”]

Wells continues:
7:20 I’ve ah ……………… ah..we’ve got a few things up here………..I’ve haven’t got many ‘cause I’m going to Italy where they don’t speak English so there was no point in bringing much stock. But we’ve got two … um…. two workbooks in one…. and …. uh …..it’s also on the CD …..eh…on the USB …. you’ve got the DVD and the CD……. “The Seed of Honour”…. which honestly has been um….. it’s been amazing when I’ve actually preached….eh …. and … uh …..that’s the full workbook and we’ve also got Financial Freedom which takes you through everything……… having a prosperous soul …..right through to a wealthy mindset……. right through to business….everything…. and on here we’ve got… um it says 10 CD’s and DVD’s….. they’re not ………we’ve got 21…. and one of those I’ve just realised on there is the full conference I did on “shame”….. um….which was about five uh……..s… um…..s……….different uh….sessions on shame which is what I did with some of the youth last night. So you can ….um……. we’ve only got a few so if you want one you will have to be quick….

Transcribers note:
As Wells speaks about each of these products she holds them up and then places them to the side of the lectern one by one.

Amanda Wells continues:
8:13 Let’s pray. Father I just thank you for this morning. I thank you Lord for what you’re about to do. I thank you for what you’re doing in this house. I thank you for every person… I thank you Lord that this house is on a journey….. it’s in a… on a journey to victory …….. it’s on a journey to growth……….it’s on a journey from faith to faith…to glory to glory….…. from hope to hope ….. and Father I thank you as the Word goes forth this morning that chains will be broken……that lives will be freed under the anointing of God. We thank you Holy Ghost. We thank you that you’ve come…… that you always are here and you’re here doing a work in each one of our lives. And in Jesus name I thank you that every word that comes forth will be words full of faith and full of…. the impacting nature of God today….. in Jesus’ name.

Transcribers note:
Finally Wells introduces her subject for the morning. “It’s a Change of Season”. And it would seem that it was aptly named. The stories which Wells peddles are as changeable as the seasons themselves.

Amanda Wells continues:
9:05 “There has been a change of season. I guess you a….as a church have realised it probably more than ….. than any other.………and we have to know our season. The sons of Issachar knew the seasons and the times…. you know we look at that and we think that they just knew the spiritual times but actually the sons of Issachar understood the seasons and the change politically, economically ….. they knew when the world was changing… and the world is on such a time of change…. nothing has been the same ….I mean who would have thought the Middle East would have been where it is and we have to understand the generations…… we’ve got to understand the season of time generationally ….because this is not just a .. i…i ….if you’ve notice it’s not just a gender thing anymore … this is a genderational seasonal…… seasonal change …. it’s a bit like your ….. your word this morning ….. that’s …a mouthful.

“But God is using both men and women and today we’re in the 2011… and the number 11 is significant because the first time that the number 11 was ever used in the Bible…. it was time of a whole season of change. An…and a season of change ta…to…..took place for Jacob. An … and it …. it means a tipping point and we’re seeing such a tipping point today. I mean just this year we’ve seen earthquakes…. we’ve seen floods….. we’ve seen….. um …..…… tsunamis…… in just 6 months ….and we’ve seen the Middle East in …. in revolution and so the body of Christ must understand where we are. And because if we do not know where we are and we don’t shift and take advantage of this season when the tipping point happens we actually miss what God’s going to do. And if we don’t change in the season we come paralysed in the last season and so many Christians are paralysed in the last season…. and so God wants us to move into this new season. The purpose we come to church is not just to sit but it’s to be trained. And it’s to be trained to be sent out into the systems of society. We are to go from glory to glory…. from faith to flaith [sic]. And when the tok…clocks ticked over in 2011 we were plunged into a new season.

11:26 “We were plunged into 2011…… and I believe this is harvest time like we’ve never seen it before. Two tho..…. 2010….. number 10 means a time of testing is completed…. but the number 11 is double one…… it means double favour……double favour in ministry ….. double favour in family ….. double favour in business……. double favour in career…….. double favour in your wealth……. it is time to seize the day! No matter what‘s happened it is time for us to stand and say “Let us seize the day”.!

“People have said to me “Amanda, with all of th… the…. the earthquakes and the floods and the civil unrest, it must mean that Jesus is coming back.” But in Matthew 24 verse 14 it says “Jesus said, ‘And the good news of the gospel of the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world so that all nations will hear it and then finally the end will come.’

“And then it says in verse 6, “You will hear of wars, rumours of wars, but see that you’re not alarmed…. such things must happen but the end won’t follow immediately. So is this the end? No!… unfortunately ….no. Not yet…. because the gospel of the Kingdom must be preached. And so the end is not just the signs of earthquakes, floods, civil unrest…. but th… this is a time when this happens we must be ready because this is a season to create new testimonies. This is a season to create something for the Kingdom of God

“Jesus said ‘The harvest is ready but there are so few labourers… a… and we looked at this and just thought salvation. But I believe this is a harvest of people….. this is harvest of wealth… this is a harvest of testimony….. this is a harvest of every single thing that you can imagine. And I wanna say let’s seize the day ‘cause we wanna be ready… we wanna create those new testimonies. Harvest of salvation…….harvest of provision…… harvest of connection …………harvest of wealth…………. Are you ready today? I don’t’ know about you but I am!

Moderator’s note:
So at around 12:13 Wells claims “this is the time to create something for the Kingdom of God” going on to say that it is not about salvation but about “harvest of wealth”. One can only be astounded that not only the “Pastor” but the congregation members were not immediately alerted to the fact that they were hearing a “different gospel” and immediately walk out or have her removed from the stage. Why are those professing to be Christians tolerating this?

Galation 1: 6:9 “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7. not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.” ESV

Amanda Wells continues:
13:33 “Let’s go to Matthew 10 and I wanna sp…. preach very quickly on something….. on this new change of season. Matthew 10, verses 46 to 42. And it says “Then, they came to Jericho”, meaning Jesus and his disciples…. “as Jesus and his disciples together with a large crowd were leaving the city, a blind man called Bartimaeus which means son of Timaeus was sitting by the road side begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout “Jesus, son of David have mercy on me”. And many rebuked him and told him to be quiet.

But he shouted all the more, “Son of David have mercy on me!” And Jesus stopped and said “Call him”.

“And so they that had just told him to shut up now actually called him and said “Cheer up”. Isn’t that just like people? One minute they tell you to shut up and the next minute they’re saying “Cheer up”!

“And then they’re saying “On your feet! He’s calling you”. Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet, he came to Jesus, and he said…….. and Jesus said, “What do you want me to do for you? I mean hello Jesus, he’s blind…… what do you think he wants you to do!

“We’re going to talk about that in a minute…… and Jesus asked him and the blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

And Jesus said “Go. Your faith has healed you immediately” and he received sight and followed Jesus along the road.

15:00 “Number 1. He came to Jericho. This was a specific time… it was a specific place….. i…it was a specific…..ah…..eh ….. area…..i …it was Jericho. It wasn’t Swindon. It wasn’t Brisbane. It wasn’t Perth. It was Jericho. And I wanna show us how this blind beggar called Bartimaeus can actually be a coach to us in this new season. And I really sense that .. a..as we‘ve looked at this new season that we’ve gotta look at some things. And we’ve gotta be ready for this new season.

And so Number 1. How can he be a coach? He was ready to seize the moment. Jesus in ….a.. said in this place ….. in Jericho, a blind man decided “I am not leaving this place till I get my miracle. I am not leaving here…… I am not leaving where I am seated today, where I positioned today, I am not leaving until I get my miracle. He said this is where there will be significant change in my life”.

“And if you need significant change, you gotta turn around like blind Bartimaeus this year and you gotta say “I am not leaving this place until I get my miracle!”.

16:13 “Although he had issues he was looking forward ….. and he was looking at the opportunity….. he heard…. he heard that Christ was coming. Wasn’t he the one who turned water into wine….. wasn’t he the one who fed the five thousand………… wasn’t he the one that caused the blind eyes to see…… wasn’t he the one that unstopped the ears of the deaf? He’d heard because he couldn’t actually see actually see him with his eyes. And you know when the message comes, you hear the message. Some people are just wanting Jesus to turn up ….. they just want a manifestation to turn up. But this man couldn’t see a manifestation. He couldn’t even see Jesus with his eyes but he was able to hear … and when you hear a message…….. when Pastor Les speaks a message you gotta be like blind Bartimaeus and you’ve gotta say “I can hear the message come today and with that message I’m taking hold of it because I am not leaving this place until I get my miracle. I am not leaving this place until I’m changed…. I’m going to be sitting by the side of the road….. but when that message comes forward ….. when I hear the message in the morning…. I AM NOT GOING until God changes me…… I might not see a manifestation…… but it still doesn’t stop my ears from working…… I can still hear……the message.

“He realised that the message was coming and it was a solution to every issue …… presenting itself in his…… midst today was a divine opportunity and he was not going to miss it. How often we come to church and we miss that divine opportunity

“We think “Oh tithes and offering… it’s just going round again …. just pop a pound in the bucket”…. but it’s a divine opportunity. What was it about Jericho? Jericho in Hebrew means a season or a next cycle. Jericho actually in Hebrew means the place of possibility. You’ve gotta find your place …of Jericho.

Where is your Jericho today? Is it sitting here….. right here in Citifaith in Swindon? It was at the place where Joshua met with the King of Glory….where he manifested himself as the commander of the army of the host. It’s the place where God literally levelled the walls and took the people out of the wilderness and into the promised land. It’s the place where God says “Even if you’ve been stuck for forty years when I turn up I will take you into a place of possibility – that’s where Jericho is…. where you say “God this is my season of change”.

18:56 I might be blind, I might be in poverty, but I’m going to use what I’ve got to get into my next possibility. You have to recognise the next season and position yourself into a place of possibility. Citifaith Church you’re in a new season. Don’t be positioned as you were yesterday. Don’t be positioned even as you were last Sunday. This is the time to reposition yourself and say “This is our hour….. this is our season…. this is our tipping point for Swindon…..I’m gonna stand here and I’m gonna say “This is my..na…time for new possibility!”

“We may have been in disappointments, sickness, financial trouble but I wanna say to you today, it can be your place of possibility. Don’t let it be your place of defeat. Don’t let it be your place of failure. You know if…i…if there’s been a financial issue, turn around and say “Devil you’re not stealing my money….. I’m sowing it. I might be bankrupt … I’ll just sow that money because it’s going to become my place of possibility in the future…… I may have had sickness…… there may have even been death but Devil you better know one thing…… that that…eh…soul lost was a seed in the ground for many others. I’m not going to be defeated by this. That one seed is going to bring forth three hundred in an Alpha course Devil you thought you got me…… you thought you got us ………… but Devil you better know something…. I’m not blind Bartimeaus……. I might be still seeding on the side of the road…………… but it’s my place of possibility…… and I’m sowing that seed today and that seed is going to bring forth such a harvest ……

[audience begins to applaud in response to the increase in volume of the voice and motivational language being used]

“You dummy Devil……. didn’t you even realise? What you meant for harm God is going to turn around for good,”

20:52 And Jericho…. it’s a place of decision … it’s a place determination……. it’s a place of…. of…. vision where we allow ourselves to be challenged to go to the next level where we say I’m going to go …… and believe in Gods’ word no matter what. His name is above every name and whatever name you face today you’ve gotta decide that Jesus is here and I’m gonna get my miracle no matter what name …….. comes against me. You have to believe how powerful the God you call great really is.

[“Amens” emanate from the audience]

“He might be a great God but you have to realize that there’s a power behind it……. you know ….. the earth was formless…. it was without ……. it was void………. it was empty. There was darkness….. but it said that the Spirit hovered over the face of the deep…… and God decided one day to bring structure and order into the darkness. You know how He did it? He spoke three words…… “LET THERE”…….. I think that’s four ……. “LET THERE BE LIGHT”……. you can either have it as two or four……. “LIGHT BE” or “LET THERE BE LIGHT”. Four Words ….. “LIGHT BE”….. that’s two …… I failed Maths……… and with a SINGLE sentence……….. that’s how powerful God wa…. God was…. and God still is…. and if He says something….. it’s already done…….. it’s already done. And every time God speaks He creates……….. He activates ………….. He releases something to perform and here is blind Bartimaeus sitting ………… by the side of the road just begging.

[At this point Wells walks down to the steps of the stage and “sits” for effect]

“He’s sitting there ……. but he hears the message. He’s sitting …….. and he hears a message…… and he starts to cry out …… JESU-U-U-S! The problem is most of us don’t cry out…….. JESU-U-U-S! In the midst of everybody…… of the babble ……….. in the midst of everybody saying “Shut up man! Who do you think you are ……… you’re a Christian. ……….what good are you….. JESU-U-U-S!

23:02 Blind Bartameus ……………… his na…..name is important because the word “Bart” in Greek means “son”…….. and the word Timaeus means this ……… it means son of a blind man …….

Moderator’s’ note:
NO IT DOESN’T.

Amanda Wells continues:
“It means …… Timaeus means …… one who is unclean………… it means one who has an issue. Isn’t it interesting…….. here he was ….. Bartaemus sitting by the side of the road……. and it says ……. he was the son of Timaeus……… he was the son of someone who had an issue ……….he was the son of someone who was blind ….. he was the son of someone who had poverty issues ……… but it was right there that he said …….“Oh, I might be the son of……….. but today I’m making a change………… that what my father went through ……………….what my mother went through…………. [the audience begins to applaud in approval] ….the issues of the past are not going to effect the issues of the future.

Moderator’s note:
Since the name Timaeus means “Highly Prized”, the name Bartimaeus means Son Of He Who’s Highly Prized, or Son Of honor.

Wells begins by using the story of blind Bartimeus as her opening gambit. Unfortunately, scholars of Hebrew and Greek would very quickly have realised that she was erroneously giving the incorrect translation of certain words. Notwithstanding, even a person with little ability to pick a fraud may have noticed that she gives no less than three meanings for one word in order to provided herself with a segue into the deceitful fiction she was about to preach. Then at around 24:00 in the video, seemingly unsure as to how to set herself up for yet another fictitious claim she is about to make, she says this:

Amanda Wells continues:
24:00 “I might be the son of someone with an issue but I am not going to let that curse carry on to my next generation…….. I’m not going to let shame take over…….. I’m not going to let poverty run in my family. Blind Bartameus sat by the side of the road and he said “Today I’m going to be the first in my generation who is no longer going to be a pauper…. who is no longer going to sit in poverty….. who is no longer going to sit in shame….. I’m going to be the FIRST to make a change.……..

[Audience begins to applaud and say Amen]

“ Some of us need to turn around and say, ‘I’m going to be the first’…….. I’m not going to be the one who carries on…… that generation….

“Do you know …..I…..I…….. we have a family …. and shame…….. my brother has an IQ of about 170 I think it is …… I mean he’s way out there. His IQ is so………SO out there. I mean he’s just brilliant. My sister is brilliant but a nutter. And then I came along and I was dumb. But all through my family and even last year when I was doing the family tree, there was never education in our family. Even though we had the brains everybody just kept …. not going on and being educated. Everyone would go to school….. my Dad only went to 6th grade………… because that’s what you did……… and then before him his Dad only went to 4th grade and then went out to work. And no one had made a change. And there was something in me….. I’ve always had it…. that I wanted to be a doctor. Thank God, not a medical doctor…… I’d kill you all. But I wanted just to have the title “Doctor”.

[audience laughter]

“Well everyone else has got it….. why not me! You know ….. they call them “Doctor”, “Doctor”, “Doctor” and I haven’t got anything.

25:51 “But the problem was in most Universities I couldn’t get in because I failed school ………. I failed everything…………… and yet I KNEW that God wanted me to be a Doctor.

And so what I did was started to declare it every morning, I’d get up and look at myself in the mirror and say “Hello Doctor Amanda, how are you?” I’d practice every day!

[Audience applauds this statement]

“Until, finally one day just …….. this year ….. I found a University ….. and I actually did a little bit of dealing there …………. I said “If you will, I’ll do this”. And I ended up getting a Bursary. I ended up getting funding. Because I started to pray and I started to believe that I can be the first.

“And now I’m going through and getting my Doctorate.

[Audience applauds this statement that Wells admits to having done a back door deal in order to get a Doctorate) the question must be asked as to what reputable college or University would give a Doctorate to a proven plagiarist.]

It may take me ten years…. and I might be on a walking frame by the time I’ve finished but one day in ten years I’m comin’ in, walking frame and all and you will have to turn around and say “Hello Doctor Amanda!” Because I want to be the “first” in my family………… and I believe that’s how we need to be.

[Audience is by now engaging in continuous applause]

“ Is it easy? No…. I mean.. I started to dream this stuff and I’m like Oh Rog……. I don’t think I can do it………… but I will do it. Because my grandchild……..… I’m the one who’s making a change for my granddaughter………..

[audience shouts vocal support “Hear! Hear]

“I will be the first in my family …….… Blind Bartameus said “I will be the first”. And if your family was in poverty, don’t just sit there and say “Well, I’m the son of, so I have to be”….. you turn around and say I might be the son of………… but I’m the first son to make a change in my family.

[audience applauds and cheers]

“They’re not having poverty any more…………..it ain’t stopping wi ….…… it’s stopping right here with me. Education…. it’s stopping with me………. because I’m going to make the change”.

Transcriber’s Note:
Amanda Well’s sister was asked to comment on the personal claims in this video. Kerri’s note – “an ironic slip of the tongue. Education did indeed stop with her. She was indeed the one to make the change to attitude to education”

Moderator’s Note:
There is no evidence to suggest that Bartameus was descended from paupers. Wells once again, reveals her lack of knowledge and attention to scripture which for someone who claims to have been in “ministry” for almost 30 years, is nothing short of staggering. There is nothing to suggest that Bartameus was a victim of generational poverty and nothing more than the man’s poverty caused through his blindness can be rightfully assumed. Wells has added to the Word of God in order to lead into her own fictitious story.

Kerrie’s comments:
For Amanda Wells to link the word “shame” in any way to the educational experience of anyone in her family (other than herself if she feels it necessary) is a disgraceful act. This unscrupulous nonsense requires some attention. Notwithstanding that the first part of her talk is full of flawed theology (but I will leave that to others better qualified than I to review) which Wells nevertheless tries to use to lead into another opportunity to malign members of her own family.

Firstly, our brother does NOT have an IQ of 170 and Wells has changed this number on many different occasions in her talks over the years until it has finally grown to this ludicrous level of exaggeration. Wells’ followers, one would have thought, might have raised questions as they heard this number grow with exaggeration over time as she pulls any number out of thin air at any given time. This particular claim is another LIE of grandiose proportions and it is difficult to comprehend how sane people could sit and accept this nonsense and not engage their own common sense.

Moderator’s Note:
To prove the point, download and listen to this audio:

http://www.christiangrowthinternational.org/publisher/search.aspx?searchString=Amanda%20Wells

Clipped screenshot.png

Note how the IQ of her bother is radically different when she’s telling this story as opposed to the above link. 

Her claim that her sister [me] is “brilliant” is also a subjective term and one can only wonder about Wells’ definition of the word of “brilliant”. Once again, her throw-away line of her sister being a “nutter” speaks for itself if one is to judge the speaker (Wells) by the “fruits” of the Spirit. Unlike both her siblings, Wells failed to complete her High School education, which was in no way due to lack of opportunity, but rather lack of application. An examination of this nonsensical rant would show the inconsistencies in her claims. She claims she was “dumb” but then goes on to claim “Even though we had brains”, (is this a use of the Royal plural or is she including herself even after just claiming she “was dumb”?) notwithstanding that over the years Wells has continually claimed to have had psychological tests which gave credence to her low IQ in order to promote her story of misfortune. Further, Wells then goes on to state that “everyone” just kept not going on and being educated”. In fact, Wells brother completed his High School education at an age younger than most of his contemporaries, and her sister [me] also completed High School then becoming the recipient of a scholarship and continuing her studies overseas. Notwithstanding that fact, most of our ancestors were educated and many more so than their contemporaries.

Wells’ claim that it was SHE who was the person who changed the attitude to education in her family is outrageous. Given that she was the only one of the children in our family who never completed High School one wonders how she has escaped scrutiny regarding such nonsense for so many years. A discerning listener would have noted by now that Wells, in keeping with the title of her sermon, changes her story for “the season”. The point here is not whether or not Wells was as bright as her siblings, but rather the lies she weaves in order to promote a fictional story.

Our parents were diligent in ensuring that all their children had educational opportunities of which many other children could only dream. Despite Wells’ continued claims over the years that “she broke the cycle of poverty in her family”, this is complete and utter nonsense and an insult to our parents, particularly our dear father who ensured that his children led a life of considerable privilege. All three siblings attended prestigious PRIVATE schools and were given the opportunity to take up virtually any outside pursuit we desired. Wells failed to avail herself of these opportunities, showing little or no interest in applying herself to outside activities. The discerning follower would have by taken note of the myriad of times Wells herself has told of her lack of interest in education or application to her school studies. In her own words Wells has claimed that she was a “wild child” in her youth. Why Wells has continually been invited to churches over a period of many years without anyone questioning this disparity in her claims is an indictment on the individuals calling themselves “Pastors” who are supposed to be caring for the well-being of their congregation.

Moderator’s note:
Reference also video 13th March 2016 at Life Church Ipswich, Queensland, Australia where Wells gives a real insight into her real attitude to education! Wells was attempting to convince the people in Pastor Wayne Scott’s church that there was some spiritual reason as to a problem which might be apparent in his church. She managed to once again weave certain unrelated factors together in order to assist in building her “sermon”. Note that she claims “the Lord” has shown her something thus duping the unsuspecting and undiscerning into placing credence in her false claims

04:29 Now the next thing that I saw was in this school…… this is a school hall…. it’s where school is…. and this building…… er…..some of you intercessors need to get into prayer….. because… it’s…. because it’s a school building…. suddenly the Lord showed me that it’s a spiritual thing…. there’s a lot of apathy in here….. because school kids are apathetic….. and especially in this area…… there’s a lot of rebellion ….and apathy…. and the thing that they wanna do … school kids …. is leave school ………I mean….. me ………..that’s all I thought of all day….”I wanna leave school. I can’t wait till I get outta school. Why am I in school? I don’t’ wanna be here. Why should I be here? ….….. And the thing is … we don’t realize it but it can get round people’s mind sets without you even realizing….. that that’s what’s coming around the mind set.

And that’s why people will even leave the church……….is… because of what’s the spiritual atmosphere here that’s in the room. So I would really be breaking through that…. um …. because there’s something that I …. em…. feel it’s….. that comes in …………occasionally in here and you need to break it…..okay?

You’re lookin’ at me like I just spoke in Chinese ……. Urh………. Ah …….. [Wells gives an embarrassed laugh] and uh……… and so………. Ah we….we need to do that…. because I just felt that’s something in. in this school.”

Kerri writes:
Wells, consistently claims (including in her Business advertising) that “Presbyterian Ladies College” is her Alma Mater. In fact this was the primary (or grade school) which Wells attended. Her High school attendance began at Manly Girls’ High, a Government High School in Sydney, Australia. Her time there was so unsatisfactory that our parents actually enlisted my assistance to have colleague of mine to get her into another school. She was moved from Manly Girls High to Stella Maris Catholic College, Sydney where her time was troubled and she failed to complete her High School education. The listing of P.L.C. as her Alma Mater on all her biographies and omission of her high school education is a duplicitous attempt to hoodwink the public. Again Wells claims to have been “doing her Family Tree”, (a claim so easily de-bunked by the false statements she has made about her ancestors on so many occasions some of which I have addressed before on this site) and based on “doing her Family Tree” goes on to make statements about her ancestor’s education level. Documented evidence exists which proves this all to be utter nonsense. The ridiculous nature of her observations about the family’s education level is insulting and yet more LIES. Her assertion that no one had gone on with their education and no one had a made a change and that she was going to be the “first” is a LIE of such grandeous proportions as to defy description. Incidentally, in the interest of once again setting the record straight, our father attended High School into his mid teen years, (NOT leaving in 6th grade as she has claimed on other occasions) before leaving High School only due to his having to go to work in order to provide for his widowed mother and large family of siblings at a time in history when many young men had to make similar decisions. Our father was in fact, an avid scholar and went on to continually educate himself, becoming one of the most widely read and erudite men I have ever known. Had Wells been present at his funeral she may have learned about his difficult yet accomplished past, his intellectual pursuits and success in life which were acclaimed on that occasion. To disparage a man in this way when he is no longer here to defend himself is contemptible and reprehensible. Despite, as was the case with many people of their generation, being unable to continue tertiary education due to the social conditions of the time, both of our parents filled our home with good books, and continued to undertake further educational endeavours themselves throughout their lives. I remain both shocked and deeply ashamed that any person could lie to this extent in order to deprecate others in order to promote a fanciful story of her own.

Our mother was a very keen student and an exceptionally accomplished one in fact, and was granted entry into the then Sydney Girls High School – an ACADEMICALLY SELECTIVE school to which students were invited to enter. I still retain in my possession my mother’s letter of invitation which she treasured until her death! That our mother was unable to take up the invitations due to her family circumstances was a matter of extreme regret and one which she lamented her entire life. For Wells to claim that it was a lack of interest in education that caused my mother to have to forego this opportunity is scurrilous and cruel in the extreme.

Of course, Wells’ foolish and Narcissistic claim that she always wanted to be a “Doctor” because “everyone else had the title so why shouldn’t she” reveals Wells’ true motives in decrying everyone else’s achievements and defies reason. The Pastor of the church in which this rant took place (Lesley Yvonne EVERSON, in Swindon, England: Exhibit #3) should surely have had enough discernment, if not common sense, to see that none of what Wells was saying made any sense. Of course the duplicitous and malicious claim that her sister [me] is a “nutter” is specifically designed to deflect any questions that might arise down the track which might eventuate and threaten to expose this malicious nonsense.

One can only muse also at what was going on in the minds of people listening to her who accepted that “wanting to be called Doctor” is all the qualification one needs in order to expect such a title be bestowed on her. Were not the people in this congregation alerted to some deeply disturbing problem here when Wells claimed that she “had to do a bit of dealing” to arrange this tile she so badly covets? Is this an acceptable way for a Christian to obtain a title which would then be used to fool people into thinking she had credentials to which she was not entitled? Of course by attaching the claim that “God wanted her to be a Doctor” she does what is so rife in the visible church today; the undiscerning sheep just believe without question anything that is told to them as long as it is preceded by the blasphemous claim that “God said” or “God told me”. Why any rational person did not get up and leave at this point is a mystery to any sane person. The vanity and Narcissism evident in her claim to want to bear the title of “Doctor”, and to even be prepared to “do a little bit dealing” to obtain such an undeserved honour surely would have had any honest and sincere Christian Pastor hanging his/her head in shame that Wells had been invited into his/her church to speak to those to which a Pastor has a duty of care.

Amanda Wells continues:
27:37 [Wells climbs back to the podium and continues:]

“Where are we? ……………… We’re back at Blind Bartamaeus……………and suddenly no matter what your Mum or Dad did you can break it…………. and I believe we’ve gotta turn around and break it……. in England, you’ve gotta turn around and break some things.

“You know there’s too many things that run in families…….. let’s stand here and break it now!

27:58 “He was very strategic…. Number 2……..look at this …. he shouts out……. his name….. “JESU-U-US”….. which means Saviour, deliver……… Son of David………. in every season according to what God is doing He reveals himself by a new name.

“Adam knew Him as “The Word”…….. but to fulfill the mandate….. to subdue………..to create……… to innovate………. to multiply ……… Adam had to know God as Elohim….. which was Creator God.

“To David ….. God said “David you will be a King……. my King…… well David didn’t know what a real king looked like…………..he had ……… the only …. thing he could copy was …… was Saul ….. and so David was shown the King of Kings as we see in Psalms …….. the first time the King of Kings manifested …..

“To Joshua……” God said Joshua, I want you to go over …… and I want you take back the Promised Land…… there’s …… there’s a few “ites” in there. ….. Vegemite….Marmite…… Promite ……….. whatever. But you gotta go in there and you’ve gotta take ‘em back but to do that….. Joshua …you need to know me as the commander of the army of the Lord…

“To Abraham….. “Abraham, I want you to cut covenant. What does that look like……. I am going to show you me as a Covenant God ……. and in the 1st century Jesus showed himself as the savour and the deliver of the world.

“And so every generation has to know God and know his name…… and … because there is a new name in every season because He’s about to do a new thing. And it’s important to know the name that God wants to manifest in the season because the name you revere is the name he will manifest.

“You see … if I want …wealth….. I can’t just ask God … my … J..Jehovah Rapha…. which is “God my healer …..I have to know him as the God… of wealth. If I need my needs met… it’s not enough to just know him as Jehovah Rapha the God of Healer … I have to know him as Jehovah Jireh, the God my provider….

“Do you know Him today in the new season? Do you know the name of God for Citifaith for the new season? Do you know who God wants to manifest as in the next season? Or are we still looking at the god of the last season ………..but are you allowing God to open the next door to you and show himself strong ….and show himself as he wants to manifest in this next season to you….

30:44 “Because blind Bartamaeus didn’t just y…yell out “Uh, JESUS! Uh mate! Come ‘ere ….I need ya …..come over here!” He was actually so deliberate…. he said “Jesus! Son of David, have mercy.” He knew the name that he needed to manifest in that hour. And if you want to break something off your family……… you‘ve gotta know him….. you’ve gotta know the name of that ….. o…of … that … that bondage that you want broken… you’ve gotta knew [sic] him. If you want sickness broken you better know him as Jehovah Rapha…. my God, my healer…. whatever has been in my family is no more because he is manifesting himself as that.

[audience applauds]

“We have to know him. I believe at this hour God needs the church to know him as the God of Wealth. We’ve been poor too long. I don’t wanna be poor any longer…… don’t ya hate it?

[Adopts mocking voice…..]

“Oh, it’s so humble to be poor”……. it’s really humble! I tell you some of us are going to get a shock when we get to Heaven….. because when we get to Heaven…….. and we see God’s wealth……… um… what are you gonna say then! Isn’t God humble? I mean he got streets o’ gold………….. he had nothing else to do with it except lay TAR …. of gold.

“And so God is saying…. God … I… I …he’s saying …… “I…I want you to know me in the name that you want me revealed…. as.”

“Whatever Jesus means he can change your life at any time. Jesus means Ruth even though you’re a Moabite. You just know me and I can turn your life around and even get you in the very lineage of the the Deliverer.

“Rahab might be a prostitute ……but Rahab if you know me …… I can change your life around.

“Jesus ……. he is greater than any issue. … he is ………Jesus ….. he shouted the name …Jesus son of David …… you are the one who can reverse my curse. God has given you the anointing to carry on from David’s generation………because every generation needs to see a David ……..they need to see someone come from nothing and go into something…….. he said “Have mercy on me” …….. why …….. because he is the keeper and the trustee of mercy.

“Christ will never deal roughly with a sinner….. He will never deal roughly with you when you make a mistake

33:23 “Number 3… let me be quick as I finish…….

“Be ready to deal with opposition ……….. many rebuked him ………..“Shut up man! Be quiet. Shut up!” ………… and he said “No I’m continuing to shout. These people have no anointing to help me……….. I’m not going to listen to those around me……. I’m gonna listen to the one who has an anointing to help me.

“So many of us want to listen to everybody who’s being negative ………….but then we say [adopts mocking voice] “Oh the pastor! What’s SHE got? Well she’s got an anointing to help you! He says I’m going to the source of mercy. Jesus stopped and called him. And immediately … you see……. blind Martamaus [sic] had a cloak on….. and immediately he threw his coke …. coat off………. he jumped to his feet……. and the cloak was the cloak of hurt, poverty, shame, insignificance ……that cloak actually gave him licence to stay in the condition he was in. But he threw it down………. because he now had a revelation of another cloak that gave him licence to excel. Which …. cloak are you hiding in today? Let Jesus cover you with a new …. coat. Let him give you a new …. cloak today. Let him, give you a licence to excel.

34:45 “Let’s look at ways to deal with opposition. Number one ….. press through …nev….nevertheless…… press through ……..don’t’ worry about it………just say “I want my miracle”. David’s greatest attack came from his family…… and sometimes our greatest attack comes from those who love us…. from those who are closest to us…… and when your attack comes you’ve gotta say “I’m pressin through……….. nevertheless……… I’m focusing on my miracle and I’m pressing through.”

“Number 2….. be focused. (Ahem)….what do you want from me?……… Jesus it’s obvious. The man is blind. Jesus wants him to focus on the solution ………not on the problem. We’ve got to stop se….stop focusing on our problems and focus on our solutions.

“Number 3. And this is where I finish ………I ’m tryin to wrap it up quick. You’ve gotta shake it off…….. you gotta stand up ……..and you gotta step on it.

There was a story of a donkey …. and he was a BAD donkey. And his owner was even worse. And his owner decided one day … he was gonna bury the donkey alive. And he dug a huge hole ………. and put the donkey in it……….. and the donkey had to decide how he was going to survive …….. and so the owner was pouring dirt in …. and every time he poured the dirt in on the donkey……… the donkey would stand up on the dirt …….shhhhhhake it off…….and step on it…… another bit of dirt…… stand up….. shhhhhhake it off … and step on it …… another bit of dirt…….stand up……. sssshake it off…….. and step on it

“And sometimes when the enemy is trying to pour dirt on you ……. trying to pour his muck on you…… trying to pour his sickness on you, trying to pour his poverty on ya…… you need to stand up……… you need to shhhhhake it off ……….. [audience begins to applaud wildly] and you need to step on it!… because what ends up happening is one day you’re the same height as the man…….. you’re… just a hole has been poured in …. but you’re standin’ there and you are the same height….. because you stood up…..ya shhhhook it off ……. and ya stepped on it1

[“Amens” emanating from audience”]

‘I don’t know what you got today but you need to stand up…. ya need to reposition yourself…. ya need to say this is not gonna attack me anymore…… I‘m shakin’ off this stuff …….. and I’m gonna step on it!…… because it’s not gonna rule me anymore…….. I’m gonna rule it…………..

[applause]

37:25 Stand up …….shhhake it off ………step on it ………. it’s a new season …….don’t let the enemy …. eh…torment you ……….don’t him discourage you…… stand up….. shhhake it off….. step on it. …. don’t entertain it ……… a mosquito bite is just that ……. it’s a mozzy bite ……… but if you keep scratching it and scratching it can get gangrene. ….. you can actually lose a limb…… don’t let a mosquito bite become a wound….. don’t’ let it become poisonous…… don’t allow everything that the enemy says to you through people to become a wounding dart.

[Adopts a mocking voice again]

“Oooohhhhh, you don’t know what I’ve been through………..” ….. shake it off… step on it…… [audience laughs] make a decision….. nobody is gonna wound this soul again…………. ……….

“Whoever that girl was last night….. where you are…. make a decision….no one’s gonna wound this soul again

“Number five [Transcriber’s note: what happened to number four] and I think I only got tho three but I can’t count.

Don’t use energy focusing on what you don’t have…….. [adopts mocking voice again] “I don’t have a degree”…………. I don’t have experience………… “I’m too old”……….. Mah Word! … Sarah was old………I looked at my Sarah who went through 69 hours of labour…. and I thought “How did Sarah do it?”…… . old Sarah in the Bible. Ppppphhhh ……… if…. in this next level of possibility you are going to use what you do have….. not what you don’t.

[audience expresses approval with “amens”]

“Moses turns round to God he says …..” He …hey God…. I can’t to [indecipherable] ………..” God must have been so frustrated that he turned around and says …. “Well what do you have Moses?” ….”All I got is this rod………..” “Well use it! …Use it!”

39:10 Oprah Winfrey ….. a billionaire….. you know what…. Oprah Winfrey cannot sing to save herself…… she can’t really act all that well… I mean she sorta can….. only because she was paid a lot. But she came out to Australia …….. she stood at our Sydney Opera House….. millions had gathered everywhere. And you know what she said……

“HELLO AUSTRALEEEEAAAAA”……. D’you know she got paid millions for doing that….

[audience laughs]

“I thought “I wonder if that would happen to me… I’d stand up at the Opera house and say “ HELLO AUSTRALEEEEAAAA” and they’d probably pay me to get off……

[audience laughs]

But you know what ……. she used what she did have….. a mouth. A…and isn’t that amazing how the church will actually shut you down……”Oh, you got too big a mouth”….. I was told that all the time…….Amanda you’re too loud……. you got too big a mouth…..shut up….. and then one day God said “Amanda, just use what you do have. What do I have?….. I’ve just got a big mouth……

[audience laughs]

And if Oprah Winfrey can get paid millions…… well I reckon why can’t I…… I’ll just use my big mouth.

[audience applauds].

Moderator’s Note:
What does all this nonsense have to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ? Clearly the congregation thinks is worthy of applause which is concerning in itself!

“What do you have? Everyone’s looking at what they don’t have …. “I don’t have this…… I don’t have money……” Well make it……….. do you know I am going to talk about this tonight. God says “I want to BLESS you” …… and the problem is the church pr…..sits back and thinks Gods’ just going to bring it to me……….. but do you know the word “blessing” means I’m going to give you the strategy and the process…. to create that thing that you need.”

“And the problem is we’re sitting back [mocking voice] “Oh God just let the pastor put another bit of oil on my head and I’ll be blessed”… and God’s saying “No….. I’m going to take what you have already and I’m going to put my anointing on it and tht way you are going to become victorious and I’m going to give you triumph and I’m going to take back what the enemy stole…

“So all you have to do is use what you do have …. stop whinging about what you don’t because you probably never will have it. You know I am never going to be able to sing like Beyonce`………. thank goodness……..we don’t need two of her…. and certainly not Lady Ga Ga….. I mean …. ‘ear Lord….. have mercy!

“But you know…. I can use what I do have……… and by using what I do have….. I can be a blessing in the next season! So you and I have to locate. ..what do I have in this season…. What has God given me…….. because in this next season………. I’m going to be like Blind Bartamaeus….. I don’t care what my father and my mother had…… I don’t care what people are telling me to shut up ………… I don’t care if people are telling me I’m a loser………..I’m no good….. I know that God has given me … something….. that one thing…… and if I can just locate that one thing and I can press through in this next season………. I can be what God wants me to be……

[audience applauds]

“And in Citifaith….. what has God given you……..what do you have………. locate it…….find it…. God is saying to you “What do you want me to do for you?”….. [mocking voice again] …. Oh God…………… I’m not sure…. but I know it’s a lot ……… [audience laughs] ….. it’s everything…. I need a new body……….”

“And God’s saying “Amanda, just grow up………… what do you want me to do for you?”….. Blind Martamaeus [sic] said “I need to see”…… not that I just I need money. I need this…I need to see….because if I can see…. I can then see what you’ve given me…………I can see how to be blessed…… God, I need ….to see……….

“Father I just thank you this morning….. I thank you for what you’re doing……..I thank you …… Lord………. there is just so much … and I..…I just want to finish……b..b..but there is so much that I believe you are doing in this house. …..there is so much talent in this house……..

“Father help us to locate what it is we need. Help to locate that thing for our next season. Help us to locate our gift…… help us to locate our talent….and Father as we do that ………let us learn to stand up …….. be positioned correctly …….to shake off everything that is not of you …… and to step on every word that the enemy would try to bring around us…… every arrow that the enemy sends. ….we are going to step on it today …..because Lord ….this is a new season for Citifaith church….. the old is not going to do it… the old is not going to be enough……… this is new day…. this is a new season ….. and Father we give you honour and we give you glory.. in Jesus name”……..

“Where is that girl who is last night gave that testimony …… there you are … did you give the testimony afterwards sweetheart?………….

Amanda Wells’ speaking engagements have been cancelled?

Pastors Andy and Ali Timms of Destiny Life Church in Bournemouth, England, (Enabler #1) invited Amanda Wells to speak at their Church this upcoming March 2017. They were contacted privately about Amanda Wells’ plagiarism on January 10th of 2017 and has yet to respond.

destiny-life-church

This speaking engagement recently disappeared from the destinylifechurch.org website:

Destinylifechurch.org.uk.png

Veronica Miles (Enabler #4) invited Plagiarist Amanda Wells to speak at the Majestic Women’s Retreat at Blue Lagoon Beach in Tasmania, Australia. She was contacted privately about Amanda Wells’ plagiarism on January 21st, 2017 and has yet to respond.

majestic-women-retreat

Amanda Wells’ name has also recently vanished from the Majestic Women’s Retreat speaker list:

Missing Wells.png

Both Timms and Miles were contacted by us in accordance with Scripture:

“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:15-20)

Neither had the courtesy to respond to our concerns regarding them putting their congregants and conference attenders at risk. This lack of courtesy on behalf on Christians is all too frequent and is an unacceptable problem in the Church today. Common courtesy would dictate that our message to them merited at least a courteous response. However, upon receiving no acknowledgement of receiving our alert, we took the step then of notifying them publicly about our concerns. (Again, in accordance with Scripture.) And still neither responded.

Both parties appeared to ignore the warnings and continue with their intention to have Wells speak. We have continued with our warnings regarding Amanda Wells and her scam ministry and it appears, finally, that she is no longer appearing on their speakers list in either case.

So what’s changed? Is this a case as so often before of pastors and conference organizers going underground with their engagements in order to clandestinely cover up for and protect their colleagues? We hope not. If Wells has actually been removed from both of these events then we can only ponder as to why neither of these organizers had the integrity to publicly announce that they have disengaged Wells as they so publicly had announced that they had engaged her? What is the secret? What is the problem? What is going on? Does the Body of Christ not have a right to know?

Jesus clearly exhorts us to be courageous in our faith and to warn the sheep of the wolves, not to protect them. If the intentions of those who engaged Wells to speak at their events was without guile, and they have heeded the warnings that have been so clearly heralded, then what is their shame in being open about their decisions and reasons for decisions? We ask these questions because too many times, false teachers have been protected by their colleagues in the past all over the world. Let’s be open and forthright in order to eliminate the possibility of any illegitimate dealings.

Unless and until ANY ENABLERS are publicly prepared to give an assurance that they will NOT HAVE Wells or any other proven false prophet and law breaker back to speak at their conferences and in their churches, they will remain on the Enabler’s List. 

“Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves him who speaks what is right.” (Proverbs 16:13)

“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”” (John 8:31-32)

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” (Luke 16:10) 

“For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.” (1 Thessalonians 5:5 ESV)

 

 

Enabler #3

Pastor Lesley Yvonne Everson of Citifaith Church in Swindon, England, is an enabler of plagiarist Amanda Wells.They are also apart of the network Christian Growth International founded by Rick and Bev Murrill. The below screenshot was taken on November 24th, 2016 on wellsministries.com.au (Since then it has been taken down).   
itinerary.png

“Pastor” Lesley Yvonne Everson was alerted to Wells’ plagiarism IN HER BOOKS by a group of Concerned Christians on January 10th, 2017 with the following message:

For some time a group of concerned Christians have been following the movements of Amanda Wells, a woman from Australia who claims she has been “ordained” in at least three churches and that she is a “prophet” of God. 

weedingoutwells.com

Amanda first came to our watch list when we received information that certain material she was presenting as her own work had been plagiarised from other sites on the Internet.  Further intense investigation found a plethora of such plagiarized material, and we began to view this matter more seriously.  

In 2015 the discernment website Churchwatch Central attempted to draw attention to Wells’ illegal activity by promoting a game called “Culprit in the Pulpit” which encouraged  Christians to be more discerning when accepting the claims of people who claim to be prophets.  Every person who claimed to be a prophet and who were a part of the Elijah List with Wells was personally notified and led to examples of plagiarism.  Some of the people from whom she had plagiarised even appeared on that list of her own colleagues!  The warning was ignored.  Wells herself chose to deal with the issue by using social media to insult and abuse those who began to ask questions. 

Here is a timeline of events that has been documented: 

https://churchwatchcentral.com/2016/11/10/why-are-we-challenging-the-elijah-list/

In 2016 at the time of the Australian Prophetic Summit, every member of the Elijah list was once again notified that despite her being exposed as a plagiarist the previous year, Wells had continued to steal other’s material and sell it and present it as her own during the intervening 12 month period.

By this time, Wells had attracted attention from other areas including a Christian Radio station: 

http://www.piratechristian.com/fightingforthefaith/2016/12/benny-hinn-partners-with-chuck-pierce

Despite the fact that the Elijah List did not have the courtesy to respond to warnings, it was noted that all Wells’ “prophecies” were suddenly removed from the site.  Likewise, the Senior Pastor of her church, (Glory City Church), one Katherine Ruonala, took action, and according to Wells’ own website  (wellsministries.com) Wells had removed herself from her activities in the Glory City Church for a certain time in order to receive counseling regarding the matter.

Despite assurances from those enabling Wells, further material began to emerge, and in recent weeks we have become aware that books which Wells claimed to have written also contained plagiarized material. 

Currently we are investigating her other books and looking for more plagiarised material.  We have every reason to believe that there are yet more examples to be discovered, and we will continue our attempts to expose this theft of intellectual property. If she has sold her books at your church, or if you have purchased her books, then you have enabled a plagiarist. We are taking this opportunity to request that you, as Amanda Wells’ friend, call her out on her sins as she’s engaging in illegal activities and will reflect poorly on your church and all who are affiliated with her. 

Since we have video evidence of Wells selling these products from pulpits and platforms at church meetings in countries spread across the world, we will continue to advise all parties involved to cease and desist immediately in any further promotion of these products. 

We are notifying all the publishing companies that have published her books and all the companies that sell her books, as well as all the churches that promote her because when she goes to a church to speak she sells her plagiarized materials there. 

If you have questions or concerns of the content of this letter please message us here on Facebook or email us at heresyhunter99@gmail.com 

Yours faithfully, 

Concerned Christians

Below is more information on this church:

citifaith.png

Citifaith Church reads:

Pastor Les and Pastor Mike took over Citifaith Church in February 2004. During times of exciting growth in the church Pastor Mike took ill and, after a brave fight, went home to Glory in December 2010.

They had pioneered a church in South Africa, which they pastored for 17 years before God called them to the nations.

Pastor Les has taken over from her husband and as a result Citifaith is going from strength to strength.

After ministering to the nations of the world, seeing many people healed and set free and seeing many salvations, Pastor Les has a passion for Swindon. She wants to see the community changed and the people reach their destiny and live a life in the freedom, purposes and fullness that God intends for us.

Pastor Les has 2 adult children and a grandson, who play a huge part in her life and serve alongside her in ministry.

Narcissist Amanda claims she can improve on God?

Amanda Writes:
“I have a passion to leave a legacy where I can inspire a whole lot people to an authentic walk with Jesus Christ, and to fulfill the unique call that is on their life, that they would not have experienced had I not connected with them. 

Or you could say my mission is that when I touch a life I can make the call of god more possible, credible, fun, and inspirational.”

God’s Word says:
“So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.” (1 Corinthians 3:7) 

 

Principal Enabler and Promoter of Amanda Wells

Enabler.png
Katherine Ruonala, Senior Pastor of Glory City Church in Brisbane, Australia, is the Principal Enabler of Amanda Wells.

In November of 2015, Katherine Ruonala, the convener of the Australian Prophetic Council Summit, along with the rest of the 126 Elijah List members, were alerted to Amanda Wells’ plagiarism. Only 5 of the 126 “Prophets” responded privately to the Concerned Christians back in 2015, but NONE of them publicly called out Amanda Wells. 

Elijah List Prophets fail to hear from God about Amanda Wells’ continued plagiarism

Even after Amanda Wells was publicly called out for being a plagiarist in November of 2015, Katherine Ruonala CONTINUED to invite Wells to preach at her church regularly and paved the way for Wells to preach in other churches with which Katherine is connected throughout the world.

Katherine Ruonala continues to knowingly endorse a plagiarist

Glory City Church – 3rd July 2016

Not only that, but Katherine Ruonala endorsed the prophecies of Amanda Wells, some of which were plagiarised [Written Plagiarism – Exhibit 18: Hope in the Lord (from Pat Francis)] and encouraged her to prophecy to the unsuspecting congregants of Glory City Church.

16706889_1185129331594632_1711163995_n.jpg

Katherine Ruonala did this despite having irrefutable proof that Wells was a plagiarist and therefore couldn’t be trusted. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22) How did Ruonala in good conscience and as a self proclaimed leader of a church, dismiss the well being of her members so blithely with callous indifference to the spiritual well being of her Church?

In November of 2016, when the Australian Prophetic Council was holding their annual meeting, the Concerned Christians again alerted Katherine Ruonala and the rest of the Elijah List “Prophets” about Wells’ plagiarism.

Elijah List “Prophets” notified AGAIN by Concerned Christians

Katherine Ruonala FINALLY decided to respond. At the bottom of the following article it says, “CWC has received a response from Katherine Ruonala.” 

BREAKING NEWS: Elijah List Prophet Vawser’s prophetic flip-flop over Amanda Wells’ plagiarism

It only took one year after Amanda Wells had first been publicly exposed for plagiarism that Katherine Ruonala, lead Pastor of Glory City Church and the Australian Prophetic Council coordinator, finally decided to respond, and even then it was only apparently after Lana Vawser and others took their concerns to Katherine.

A short time later, Amanda Wells removed her Twitter, facebook, and other social media pages, and added a pathetic sounding “apology” onto the About page of her website.

Open Letter to Amanda Wells

Now you see it, now you don’t! (Wells’ disappearing apology act.)

Amanda Wells “apology” is back up

 


Wells claimed that God told her to go to Katherine Ruonala’s church.

http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/62548101

Open Heaven Church Friday 22nd May 2015.

Open Heaven Church in Prestons, New South Wales Address: 23/274-276 Hoxton Park Rd, Prestons NSW 2170

Now the video has since been pulled down.

Despite the inadequate acknowledgement that she had been caught out plagiarizing the work of other individuals, and despite other evidence having come to light that she had made other false claims and claimed to be speaking for God (we know this is not possible because God does NOT lie) Wells maintained on her wellsministries website that she was a member of the Australia Prophetic Council AND that she is an ordained Pastor through Glory City Church. That claim is still made on her website as at the time of the publishing of this article and also is made on the biographies used by those still endorsing this fake prophet in their churches and at their conferences.

So Katherine Ruonala has no problem having and an ordained Pastor in her church who does not fit the Biblical requirements of leadership and had no problem endorsing and promoting her even after she was first notified of the facts. Ruonala has also sent Wells out to other churches in the world from Glory City as a representative of her church. This is not only concerning but disgraceful.

Ruonala is not obedient to the Word of God.

“Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.” (Ephesians 4:25)

Pastors Steve and Dani Bosman of Faithlife Church in Toowoomba, Queensland, are enablers of plagiarist Amanda Wells.

FaithLife Church.png

“Pastors” Steve and Dani Bosman were alerted to Wells’ plagiarism IN HER BOOKS and have invited her to preach in their church on more than one occasion. A group of Concerned Christians messaged them on February 5th, 2017 with the following message WHICH THEY SAW AND TO WHICH THEY FAILED TO RESPOND:

FaithLife Church saw it.png

Dear Faithlife Church,

For some time a group of concerned Christians have been following the movements of Amanda Wells, a woman from Australia who claims she has been “ordained” in at least three churches and that she is a “prophet” of God.

weedingoutwells.com

Amanda first came to our watch list when we received information that certain material she was presenting as her own work had been plagiarised from other sites on the Internet. Further intense investigation found a plethora of such plagiarized material, and we began to view this matter more seriously.

In 2015 the discernment website Churchwatch Central attempted to draw attention to Wells’ illegal activity by promoting a game called “Culprit in the Pulpit” which encouraged Christians to be more discerning when accepting the claims of people who claim to be prophets. Every person who claimed to be a prophet and who were a part of the Elijah List with Wells was personally notified and led to examples of plagiarism. Some of the people from whom she had plagiarised even appeared on that list of her own colleagues! The warning was ignored. Wells herself chose to deal with the issue by using social media to insult and abuse those who began to ask questions.

Here is a timeline of events that has been documented:

https://churchwatchcentral.com/2016/11/10/why-are-we-challenging-the-elijah-list/

In 2016 at the time of the Australian Prophetic Summit, every member of the Elijah list was once again notified that despite her being exposed as a plagiarist the previous year, Wells had continued to steal other’s material and sell it and present it as her own during the intervening 12 month period.

By this time, Wells had attracted attention from other areas including a Christian Radio station:

http://www.piratechristian.com/fightingforthefaith/2016/12/benny-hinn-partners-with-chuck-pierce

Despite the fact that the Elijah List did not have the courtesy to respond to warnings, it was noted that all Wells’ “prophecies” were suddenly removed from the site. Likewise, the Senior Pastor of her church, (Glory City Church), one Katherine Ruonala, took action, and according to Wells’ own website (wellsministries.com) Wells had removed herself from her activities in the Glory City Church for a certain time in order to receive counseling regarding the matter.

Despite assurances from those enabling Wells, further material began to emerge, and in recent weeks we have become aware that books which Wells claimed to have written also contained plagiarized material.

Currently we are investigating her other books and looking for more plagiarised material. We have every reason to believe that there are yet more examples to be discovered, and we will continue our attempts to expose this theft of intellectual property. If she has sold her books at your church, or if you have purchased her books, then you have enabled a plagiarist. We are taking this opportunity to request that you, as Amanda Wells’ friend, call her out on her sins as she’s engaging in illegal activities and will reflect poorly on your church and all who are affiliated with her.

Since we have video evidence of Wells selling these products from pulpits and platforms at church meetings in countries spread across the world, we will continue to advise all parties involved to cease and desist immediately in any further promotion of these products.

We are notifying all the publishing companies that have published her books and all the companies that sell her books, as well as all the churches that promote her because when she goes to a church to speak she sells her plagiarized materials there.

We are also notifying you because you have helped sell Wells’ plagiarized books from your pulpit, and that’s illegal.

https://weedingoutwells.com/2017/01/09/amanda-wells-book-there-shall-be-no-poor-among-you-contains-plagiarism/

If you have questions or concerns of the content of this letter please message us here on Facebook or email us at heresyhunter99@gmail.com

Yours faithfully,

Concerned Christians

FaithLife Church did indeed help plagiarist Amanda Wells sell her books containing stolen materials from their pulpit.

“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, ‘It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.'” (Matthew 21:12-13)

FaithLife Church Youtube.png

In Faithlife Church’s youtube video, “Amanda Wells – The Dynasty of God,” you can watch Amanda Wells promote her plagiarized products “There Shall Be No Poor Among You,” and “Package Your Brilliance Factor.” 

There Shall Be No Poor.png

FaithLIFE Package Brilliance Factor.png

We are currently waiting to hear back from FaithLife Church.


Within this “Amanda Wells – The Dynasty of God” video, Amanda Wells proclaims a prophecy over Pastors Steve and Dani Bosman.

“.. and there is a door that you are going to be able to break through that is more wealth than you could ever imagine…… and in this small people ………. I tell you……… even within 2016 a million dollars is going to come through your hands….. an….. and it’s……li…. ph …….. it’s going to come through and you are going to be amazed at the amount of giving that’s going to happen by 2016.  For a small amount of people like this, twelve thousand is awesome but it is gonna  grow and grow and grow and you know the power of it because you know that as………. they’re giving……..an…  and it’s amazing the word “tithe” written across Hebrew words are always that way [indicates with hand] but they read backwards as well.”

It’s now 2017. Within the year 2016″ did a million dollars go through your hands Pastor Steve? By 2016, did the tithe “grow and grow and grow” so that you and Dani were amazed at the power of it?

“If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.” (Deuteronomy 18:22)

“For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:12-13)

Barnes & Noble and eBay no longer sell Amanda Wells’ plagiarized books

We’ve taken the time here at Weedingoutwells to alert Barnes and Noble, eBay, Amazon, and other sellers of Amanda Wells’ books that “There Shall Be No Poor Among You” and “Package Your Brilliance Factor” contains plagiarism. Coincidently, immediately following our correspondence to the companies that are selling these books, both of Amanda Wells’ books that contain plagiarism were taken down from Barnes & Noble and eBay.

The following screenshots were taken on December 24th, 2016:

Although we emailed both Barnes & Noble and eBay to confirm that these books were taken down due to the plagiarism contained in both, neither company emailed us back to confirm this.

Individual authors have expressed both gratitude and concern to us after having been notified that their work was plagiarized. Our correspondence with the authors who were plagiarized from has been viewed by them seriously and any action to be taken is now their responsibility.

Wells writes on Page 108:

“One thing to always remember is that, ‘thoughts and feelings drive behavior.’ So feelings that fire together wire together. What this mean is when two neurons in our brain fire at the same time repeatedly (or when one fires, causing the other to fire) chemical changes occur in both, so that the two tend to connect more strongly (Jan M. Broekman, 2008). What this means in practical terms is that each time you repeat a particular thought or action, you strengthen the connection between a set of brain cells or neurons. For example if I start to think of an offense, it will usually trigger off other emotions, for example, failure, hurt, or lack of self-esteem. The way to change this is meditation, or as Paul put it, ‘to think on other things.’ Even God told Joshua to meditate day and night on His promises.’ As the brain changes the mind changes and vice versa, as the mind changes the brain changes. This means that you can use your conscious mind to make lasting changes to your brain to bring about greater well-being and happiness in your life.”

David Schouela writes:

Increasingly we are hearing in the popular press the axiom “neurons that fire together, wire together”. In 1949 Canadian behavioral psychologist Donald Hebb proposed that learning linked neurons in new ways. He proposed that when two neurons fire at the same time repeatedly (or when one fires, causing the other to fire) chemical changes occur in both, so that the two tend to connect more strongly. Hebb’s concept was neatly summarizerd by neuro-scientist Carla Shatz: Neurons that fire together, wire together.” (from Norman Doidge’s book “The Brain that Changes Itself”)

What this means in practical terms is that each time you repeat a particular thought or action, you strengthen the connection between a set of brain cells or neurons. As neuroscience expert and psychologist Dr. Rick Hanson says, “the mind and the brain are a unified system. As the brain changes, the mind changes. As the mind changes, the brain changes. This means that you can use your conscious mind to make lasting changes to your brain to bring about greater well-being and happiness in your life.”

My Reasons for why you should Travel

It’s invigorating – If you are open to it, travel will simply make you a better-rounded human being. Which is really the goal, isn’t it?

It will create lasting relationships – People you meet while on the road usually become some of the most valued ones in your address book, giving you points on the map to visit later on. It gives you the opportunity to meet some amazing people on the road, and gives you a momentary glimpse outside your usual circle of friends, forcing you into a new and refreshing perspective on things. It will develop skills you didn’t know you had

You could learn a language – There’s something satisfying about being able to throw around a few words of Italian, knowing how to say hello and thanks in Indonesian, or simply hearing a language you didn’t know existed just a few weeks before.

You’ll learn geography – For you to travel effectively, it’s vital to know how long it takes to get from place to place on the world map. Your around-the-world trip will do nothing if not teach you basic world geography.

Gives you adventure – No one looks back fondly on a trip to the dry-cleaner. But after walking a glacier in Norway, getting on a speed boat over the blue lagoon in Malta, or flying high on the London eye, boarding a gondola in Venice, and running out of petrol in Uganda and having to walk, or taking the Maid of the Midst of Niagara Falls, and think you will die right then and there, you get a feel for what being an active human being is really like. The need for adventure is hardwired; travel lets you tap into it.

Gives you perspective – Meeting people from exotic cultures will teach you that the way you look at the world is not always right. That you could be wrong about some things. Seeing it for yourself brings a healthy dose of reality to our thinking.

As a transition – If you happen to be between jobs, schools, kids, or relationships, a round-the-world trip can be a perfect way to separate these life stages, give you insight into your next phase and provide closure on the last one. Plus there’ll be a nice time stamp on that moment in your life.

For education – Seeing the world provides an endless source of information absolutely impossible to get in school, teaching you things like economy, politics, history, geography and sociology. While not an accredited institution, the school of travel is currently taking applications.

To do something new – It sucks to be stuck in a rut. Everyone knows what that’s like. Travel can be the perfect solution.

Dreams come true – If you want to do it now you’ve probably always wanted to. You imagined it, daydreamed about it, envisioned it. Now is the time to do it.

The cool stories – Don’t fancy yourself a storyteller? You’ll be the life of any party with the stories you come home with. Even if they seemed trivial when they happened, nostalgia will create a epic spin around getting your laundry done.

You will eat food like you never have – Enough said about this. You will be constantly surprised at the flavors exploding in your mouth and the amount you can fit in your mouth!

To prove to yourself you can – If you’re the kind of person to dream big, you’re probably also the kind to reach for new challenges. Finishing a trip gives you the satisfaction that you were able to accomplish what you set out to do, and to give you energy to set up the next challenge too.

But after ziplining over the jungle canopy in Peru, successfully navigating the alleys of Brussels, the speedboat ride in New Zealand, or Jeeping out with the grazing animals in Tanzania you get a feel for what being an active human being is like (again). The need for adventure is hardwired; travel lets you tap into it.

And perspective – Meeting folks from exotic cultures will teach you that the way you look at the world (perhaps through the lens of mass media) is not the way everybody does it. That you could in fact be dead wrong about it. Seeing it for yourself brings a healthy dose of reality to your so-called higher thinking.

As a transition – If you happen to be between jobs, schools, kids, or relationships, a roundtheworld trip can be a perfect way to separate these life stages, give you insight into your next phase and provide closure on the last one. Plus there’ll be a nice time stamp on that moment in your life.

For education Seeing the world provides an endless source of information about how the other 99.99% live, teaching you things about economy, politics, history, geography and sociology. While not an accredited institution, the school of travel is currently taking applications.

The challenge – Getting your daily Starbucks not nearly interesting enough for you? How about finding an address in downtown Tokyo. Bet you can’t.

To do something new It sucks to be stuck in a rut. Everyone knows what that’s like. Travel can be the perfect solution. And what’s not new about being in Bolivia?
