The Anatomy of a Huckster -- Making Merchandise of the Sheep

You see, we are not like the many hucksters who preach for personal profit. We preach the word of God with sincerity and with Christ's authority, knowing that God is watching us. -- 2Corinthians 2:17 (NLT)

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. -- 2Peter 2:3 (KJV)

The bible is filled with warnings about false teachers and prophets yet millions will fall prey to the wolves who will deny them eternal life by leading them down the broad path that leads to destruction. Now maybe this does not apply directly to you but I guarantee it applies to someone you know. Churchianity is absolutely littered today with charlatans, most of which appear motivated simply by good old fashioned greed. The two key verses speak to this phenomenon. One is written by the Apostle Paul and the other by the Apostle Peter.

Paul refers to these people as hucksters. The dictionary defines huckster as someone who "sells or advertises something in an aggressive, dishonest, or annoying way. Paul wastes no words here beloved. They do this for personal profit. Note the contrast Paul draws. He preaches the Gospel with sincerity and authority knowing that God is watching them. That is the key because the false teacher has no fear of God in their eyes. If they did they would not fleece God's flock through manipulation and deceit. Peter explains that covetousness is what drives them. Through that sin they set out to make merchandise of the sheep. Early carnival barkers would be able to easily spot suckers and they referred to them as a "mark." That is all you are to the false teacher; just another mark.

Before we proceed, a word about salvation for the wolves. I find not one scripture that tells me we ought to be praying for wolves. The Peter verse actually states that their judgment lingers not and their damnation does not sleep. What does that tell you beloved? Are the saved? No they are not. I cannot think of one single example of a full blown heretical wolf EVER repenting. In this purpose driven NAR structure, the cult of personality pastors are protected by the sheep instead of the godly order of the shepherd protecting the flock. Perhaps the most outrageous accusation ever made towards discernment ministers such as myself is a lack of love. We see bloody sheep in the jowls of ferocious wolves and we seek to free them before they are slaughtered and that is lacking love? No beloved. It is only lacking love for wolves. I have no love for some huckster trying to make merchandise of the sheep of the Lord. Today we will examine one such charlatan, Jennifer Leclaire. I have written about Jennifer before but then I came across her latest scam today. Let's here the sales pitch:

"Whether you're called as a five-fold apostle, a marketplace apostle or a fervent believer seeking revelation and impartation, The School of the Apostles will give you the foundation and building blocks you need to move accurately in the apostolic. The School of the Apostles offers sound doctrine, godly wisdom, practical insight, impartation and activation from a voice you can trust. Let's be real. There's still a lot of opposition and error in the apostolic and relatively few current resources you can trust to help you in your calling. I've been moving in the apostolic for nearly 20 years--and I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly. I've seen the extremes and the abuses--but I've also seen the fruit of true apostleship and apostolic believers." -- Jennifer Leclaire

Yes. Jennifer Leclaire now has her own school of the apostles. The calamari queen who once claimed a sneaky squid spirit was stalking her now thinks she can make people apostles. As with everything Jennifer does however, it is going to cost you. Specifically, it is going to cost you $1200 for the right to call yourself an apostle. Yet the bible makes it very clear that not all have all gifts. Not all are apostles yet for 1200 bucks Jennifer will supersede the bible on your behalf. Her claim of sound doctrine comes from the same mouth that "released the angels of abundant harvest" just in time for her new book release about that very subject. Her claim of godly wisdom comes from the same mouth that claimed the devil has a digital dossier with her picture in it. Her claim of practical insight comes from the same mouth that just this week claimed that God wanted to give seers X-Ray vision and play show and tell with them. So forgive my snarkiness when I laugh at loud when Jennifer Leclaire says she has seen the extremes and the abuses -- she is the extremes and the abuses! Before you start thinking this is just an outlier for Jennifer, let us go back to her website, linked above:
