Nazarene Space

Dear Sirs,

 

At your conference later this month you will feature the House of Aaron Dancers and John Conrad, the leader of the House of Aaron as a featured speaker.  House of Aaron is an MIA “partner” and John Conrad served in your shepherding council.  Now this raises much concern.  The House of Aaron website says:

 

"The House of Aaron today has been restored and reactivated beginning with a special calling of Maurice Glendenning, a first-born son of Aaron." http://houseofaaron.org/Overview.htm

 

Who was Maurice Glendenning?  Well he claimed to be a prophet. His revelations have been printed and published by the House of Aaron (also known as the Order of Aaron) under the title “The Levitical Writings”.  Glendenning recognized Joseph Smith jr. as a prophet and numbered his revelations in sections beginning with section 137, this was because the Doctrine and Covenants containing Smith’s revelations ended with section 136 in his day.  Glendenning also used unique terms and phrases in his prophecies which were drawn not from the Bible, but from Joseph Smith’s revelations.  Glendenning even claimed to be the last days Elias (Elijah) and to be the messenger of the covenant from Malachi 3-4:

 

"...that those of the House of Ephraim may know that I am the one spoken of by the prophets who should come to restore all things appointed unto me, I do now declare unto you that I am Elias who should come in the last days to restore unto Ephraim the House of Levi"

(Levitical Writings 166:1)

 

Gledenning claimed to be the last days Elias (Elijah) and to be the messenger of the covenant from Malachi 3-4 saying:

 

"...that those of the House of Ephraim may know that I am the one spoken of by the prophets who should come to restore all things appointed unto me, I do now declare unto you that I am Elias who should come in the last days to restore unto Ephraim the House of Levi"(Levitical Writings 166:1) 

 

Gledenning claimed to have received the Priesthood through his alleged ancestor Robert Bruce.  The true basis for this claim was that according to Masonic legend, Robert Bruce founded the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and the signs and tokens of Freemasonry are the same as the supposed signs and tokens of the Aaronic and Melchizadek Priesthoods as given in the Mormon Temple Endowment Ceremony.  Gledenning even joined the Mormon Church in 1929 and remained a member until he was disfellowshipped two years later. 


Gledenning had no “special calling” to restore and reactivate the “House of Aaron” in fact he was simply a false prophet.  The organization masquerading as the House of Aaron is therefore only a counterfeit seeking to displace the true Cohenim and Messianic Israel Alliance is an accomplice in promoting this counterfeit with its false prophet.  Either Gledenning truly was the angel of the covenant and the return of Elijah as he claimed, or he was a false prophet, his restoration of the House of Aaron a counterfeit and MIA an accomplice promoting that counterfeit.  Personally I can’t accept that Gledenning was the angel of the covenant and return o fElijah.

I just got the following email from MIA:

 

Dear Manechem Kaplan,

Someone sent me two letters you had written concerning the Messianic Israel Alliance (www.messianicisrael.com). ...

Please know that the Messianic Israel Alliance is just that – an alliance.  We all do not have identical doctrine, however we do agree on the beliefs found in The Hope of Messianic Israel which you can read here: http://messianicisrael.com/the-hope-of-messianic-israel.html?Itemid=56

Regarding Mr. Glendenning, last I checked he is passed away, so if he was a false prophet that you claim I suppose he has already gotten his just reward.  The MIA does not endorse or promote his teachings.  The MIA does not endorse or promote any form of Mormonism, although we do believe that there are some good people and probably even some Israelites within their ranks.  If Dr. John Conrad and the good people at the House of Aaron choose to believe they are from the lineage of Aaron then that is their right.  Please allow me to quote Dr. Conrad, “We are convinced that our job is to be Levi and Aaron not to convince people to recognize us as Levi and Aaron. A major part of Levi's work is to bring the Israelites together.”

From my experience over several years with Dr. Conrad, he has walked out his calling with the utmost character and grace.  He has a strong love of the Messiah, God, Scriptures, and Land of Israel.  The fruit on his tree is good.  I am proud to call him my brother.

For the past eleven years, the MIA has been doing the work that Dr. Conrad feels is his calling.  That is our connection point – the call to gather Israel.  In his capacity in the Messianic Israel Alliance Dr. Conrad has served the people of Messianic Israel very well - with integrity, and unselfishly. ...

Please know I will not engage in an open debate on the Internet as those activities are destructive and divisive rather than productive.  ...

Shalom.

My Response:

Mr. Diffenderfer,

Tp begin with I am not accusing you or the MIA of sin as such, my intent is to express a sincere doctrinal disagreement with the House of Aaron and the MIA.  I maintain that Glendenning was a false prophet, and that he had no special calling to restore the House of Aaron as the so-called House of Aaron group in Utah claims.  Since he had no special calling to restore the House of Aaron, but only false revelation ultimately rooted in Mormonism and Freemasonry, the "House of Aaron" in Utah is a false "House of Aaron" no more authentic than the Mormon "Aaronic Priesthood".  Their claims are nothing more than a displacement and replacement of the authentic Cohenim, and are deeply entrenched in the very replacement theology MIA has claimed to have no part of. 

Yes Glendenning passed away back in 1969.  Many false prophets such as Joseph Smith jr. have passed away.  I am not sure what the significance of his having passed away is to these issues.  Joseph Smith has also passed away, would a group claiming to have been founded by the special appointement of Joseph Smith to restore Israel be welcome in the MIA?  Would you have the LDS Dance Team featured at your conference?  My point is that either the House of Aaron is an authentic restoration of the true House of Aaron through the "speacial calling" of Maurice Glendenning, the supposed Angel of the Covenant and the return of Elijah, or it is a COUNTERFIT "House of Aaron" following a false prophet and engaging in the worst kind of replacement-displacement theology, seeking not just to displace Israel, but YHWH's chosen Cohenim!

Here we have an honest doctrinal disagreement. But thank you for clarifying your position.  I cannot accept that Glendenning was the Angel of the Covenant of the return of Elijah.  I therefore must conclude that he was a false prophet and his restoration of the House of Aaron based on Masonry and Mormonism a counterfit House of Aaron and an abomination before YHWH who set apart the true Cohenim.

I am sorry that you cannot agree and therefore are in "alliance" with this abomination.

This is utter silliness.  Whoever this man is who supposedly wrote this, Mr Trimm, has the most wild-eyed, crazed scholarship I have yet experienced in the Messianic Movement - and trust me there has been some tidal wave of goofiness as of late!  My husband and I LIVE in UTAH.  We are NOT LDS and have been to House of Aaron in Eskdale many times - my husband has fellowshipped with John Conrad for over 20 years (On and off as we live several hours from him).  They are no more Mormons than I am Catholic - which I am NOT!!!  However my one great grand-parent WAS a Catholic one time - - by this "research" done by this man - that makes me a Catholic as well then I suppose (rolling my eyes).  Mr. Genndenning is no longer with us.  So what if he was the House of Aaron's fore-bearer!  My great grand-parent was also a MALE - does that make me a MALE?  This type of silliness and poor scholarship enrages me and my husband.  This is NOTHING more than lashon hara Mr Trimm and mozti shemra - by allowing this garbage and SLANDER to go on - you have participated in what is akin to murdering another's character.  Who cares if Mr Genndenning was a prophet or false prophet?  Who cares if my grandfather was and is a male and a Catholic.  We have examined House of Aaron's doctrine closely and their fruit.  Upon examination it stands as very good.  We, now, also see the fruit of the man who penned this divisive article - is it out of jealousy, strife in this man's heart?  Well, we see the fruit of this letter and something is rotten and stinking to high heaven about this.  If this man who penned this article was so concerned - why did he not handle it according to how the Torah and Yeshua so aptly tell him to and deal with it PRIVATELY prior to his slandering another man's character.  SHAME ON YOU who BROKE TORAH to "police" Torah!!!

There is no Lashon HaRa here.  The statement:

 

"The House of Aaron today has been restored and reactivated beginning with a special calling of Maurice Glendenning, a first-born son of Aaron." http://houseofaaron.org/Overview.htm

 

Was made in public.  The "revelations" of Maurice Glendenning were published and distributed. 

 

This is about an honest disagreement.

 

House of Aaron maintains that Maurice Glendenning had a special calling to restore and reactivate the House of Aaron and that they are that restored, reactivated "House of Aaron".  

 

They are not immune to having that wild doctrinal claim examined.  They have clearly opened the door to a fair and public examination of the claims and "revelations" of Maurice Glendenning.

 

It is easy to shoot down straw men and say that they are not Mormons... but no one said they were Mormons.  The fact that Glendenning passed away back in 1969 is no more relevant to these issues than the fact that Mohammed and Joseph Smith have both passed away.  If he was a false prophet then he was a false prophet, even after he passed away. 

 

Your very question "Who cares if Mr Genndenning was a prophet or false prophet?" reveals your mindset.

 

The claim of the House of Aaron is:

 

"The House of Aaron today has been restored and reactivated beginning with a special calling of Maurice Glendenning, a first-born son of Aaron." http://houseofaaron.org/Overview.htm

 

Can you not see that that claim instantly falls if Maurice Glendenning was a false prophet and/or that his claims were false? 

 

If Glendenning was a false prophet (that is to say, if he was not the Angel of the Covenant and the return of Elijah as he claimed) then he had no "special calling" to restore and reactivate the House of Aaron, and the so-called House of Aaron in Eskdale is a counterfeit of YHWH's true Cohenim and replacement theology of the worst kind. 

 

Interestingly how no one wants to respond to THAT, instead they want to make non-responsive claims about the House of Aaron not being Mormons.

 

No one is attacking Conrad's character, only his theology.

 

 

Wrong - you there is lashon hara.  Did you go privately...once? twice with a witness?  NOPE - so it is just that.

Matthew 18:15 only applies to situation where a brother sins against you.  It does not apply to theological disagreements with apostate groups.  It does not require me to go privately to the leadership of the LDS Church before writing an article against Mormonism.

 

All I have done is analyzed theological claims which have been publicly made and published to the world by the so-called House of Aaron in Eskdale.

 

 

and the motive of all this is....????  To bring up a theology of a dead person several times removed?  My bet - jealousy plain and simple.  For whatever reason.  This type of on going behavior in  the Messianic Movement is just plain goofiness.  Like I said - it IS lashon hara and motzi shemra if you did NOT approach him privately first.  Pretty cut and dried.  But afterall, we can all rest assured knowing you are protecting the free and known world from those who had heretical Masons and LDS as forebearers!  What would those of us do without you?  (rolling my eyes).  You can come and see us anytime in private - my real name and contact information and picture are all there - if you "discern" any sin in my forebearers.....just do me a favor and do it according to what Yeshua and Torah before you slander me.  On the other hand - don't even bother us - some things are just too silly and obviously driven by some agenda to mention.

who - by the way had a homosexual relative too - there is fuel for a heresy hunting article to go public with!!!! 

P.S.

(With all of the issues that need to be taken care of in the Messy world - would not your time be better served in doing so?  Or is all this "your ministry?"

Wow, the "house of Aaron" are steeped in blasphemy it seems.
Imagine these gentiles who can't even speak Hebrew, claiming to be firstborn sons of Aaron !

God strike them!

Instead of putting up an instant wall of defense, why don't you respond to the actual claims brought forth? I think the question is, DOES this organization claim as one of their founders a man who held to Mormon doctrines? That question, if answered truthfully, should resolve all questions on this matter.

You have already been disproven on your false claim of lashon hara, why do you persist?  According to you I cannot witness to groups of apostate gentiles without going to each person individually. Ya, right!

This is a "issue that needs to be taken care of in the Messianic world", cannot you not see it, ,,,or has membership brainwashed you also?
