This has got to be one of the strangest religious movements of recent memory:http://www.zoeministries.com/
Bishop E. Bernard Jordan is nothing less than a modern-day prophet. In 1989 he predicted Hurrican Katrina, which had a devastating effect on the people of New Orleans. Sought after by nations of the world for his accurate prophecies, Jordan has prophesied the world of the Lord to literally millions of people. He is the founder of Zoe Ministries in New York City, a prophetic gathering with a vision to impact the globe with Christ's message of liberation. He has been on NBC's Today Show, FOX 5, Good Day New York, CNN, and many others.
BIshop Jordan hold his doctorate in religious studies. He has self-published several best-selling books.http://www.amazon.com/Laws-Thinking-Secrets-Manifest-Prosperity/dp/1401917968/sr=1-1/qid=1166090594/ref=sr_1_1/002-7713878-1700822?ie=UTF8&s=books
OK - normally, I'm skeptical of the religious media "watchdogs" that perform the service of self appointed "theology cop" to the Christian world. HOWEVER - let's talk about "Master Prophet" Bernard Jordan for a minute. What is a "Master Prophet" anyway? Is that like a "Master Plumber?" I don't really find that designation in the Bible...
Anyway - I started watching him on BET early in the morning when I'm working out, and let me tell you - you can just get lost in his website. You can order a personal prophecy, be part of the "prophecology" event (whatever that is), pay $1199 for a year of prophetic teachings, or for only $3,000 become part of the prophetic "inner circle."
I mean let's face it- this guy has endorsements from Al Sharpton, Russel Simmons, and even Rev. Ike. http://www.philcooke.com/bernard_jordan
This is an actual email from Bernard Jordan:
First, forget everything negative and bad youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve heard about the number 666. In fact, the exact opposite is true; the number 666 is considered mystical and holy. It is the number of God.
It is the number of Ã¢â‚¬Å“protection and creationÃ¢â‚¬Â.
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let 06/06/06 frighten you!
I can show you how to turn the mark of beast
into the Mark of Increase!
Robert, on Tuesday, June 6th at 7:00pm I will be in my church preaching, praying, prophesying and releasing the power of blessings. If you want protection and the secret of creating, join me this Tuesday during the live streaming broadcast of this special service. The Spirit gave me a sacred Prayer of Protection and Manifestation that will cause a gigantic wave of divinely ordained abundance.
Deliverance is coming! Satan is a Liar!
Through an accurate word of prophecy, I will reveal how to turn the mark of the beast into the mark of wealth and prosperity and how to turn darkness into light and deliverance from harm. In the 10 seconds it took you to read this far, the Spirit just showed me that you can have the same mystical power for yourself. The curse is broken and a new day of miracles is ready to unfold for you.
Robert, I will be performing the prayer of intervention on your behalf for the next 24 hours. Sow your seed donation into the church ministry within the next 6 hours, 6 minutes and 6 seconds and join me at www.bishopjordan.com
on Tuesday, June 6th, 2006 at 7:00pm!
I just had to stop and anoint my hands and mouth with Holy Anointing Oil, the same oil I will send you along with your very own DVD of the protection and blessings service. You will also hear the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Prayer of ManifestationÃ¢â‚¬Â spoken over you. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let the fear of 06/06/06 scare your blessings away.

Joseph Simmons, of the legendary hip-hop group Run-DMC, has been ordained a "priest" by Zoe Ministries, and his brother, Russell Simmons, founder of Def Jam Records, appears on an infomercial promoting "Bishop" Bernard Jordan's psychic abilities.
"Bishop" Jordan is becoming a very wealthy man, due to his followers' belief that he is a modern-day prophet and the true descendent of St. Peter. Not even Snoop Dogg would sink this low to make a dollar.
