Juanita Bynum, a Christian minister whose domestic abuse case gained mainstream attention several years ago, was recently named as a candidate for the office of bishop in the Global United Fellowship ministry by its presiding bishop Neil C. Ellis.
“Prophetess Juanita Bynum, she has now been approved as a candidate for the office of the bishopric,” Ellis announced in a video shared on Bynum’s official Facebook page.
“Indeed, indeed the Global United Fellowship is pleased to make this announcement, because she will be a part of the class of 2016 from the Global United Fellowship,” Ellis added.
He said this new position was “a gift” from God to Bynum and that God was “taking her to higher ground.” Source
This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy money; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God (1 Timothy 3:1-5)?
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons (1 Timothy 4:1).
