Miriam Franklin – End Times Prophetic Words ‘Prophetess’ a Fraud? [UPDATED]

7DTW AuthorIcon75 Miriam Franklin   End Times Prophetic Words Prophetess a Fraud? [UPDATED]

MiriamFranklin ETPW Miriam Franklin   End Times Prophetic Words Prophetess a Fraud? [UPDATED]I was hit with the news that Miriam Franklin from the website, www.endtimespropheticwords.wordpress.com has been sued for multiple counts of fraud.

I hope Miriam Franklin is NOT Guilty of these crimes.   NEWS UPDATE – It has been proved without a shadow of a doubt that Miriam Franklin from Endtimes Prophetic Words, is the same Miriam Rosalind Franklin who owned Diggory Press. (read comments below)

————————–

[Notes by DTW –  Yes, it is unfortunate that Miriam from ETPF is the same Miriam Rosalind Franklin from Diggory Press and Meadow books publishing.

DTW will now analyse the situation from a Biblical perspective as to why things when so wrong.  After reading her blog especially the comments section where people asked Miriam questions the following became very clear:

ERROR No.1  She does not believe in a pre-tribulational rapture, because her eschatology beliefs are Post-Tribulational. (Apologies, I thought she was amillennial, but Byron supplied a comment below showing me she was not.) 

ERROR No.2 ETPF does not distinguish the church from Israel in their dispensations, this is called replacement theology.

ERROR No.3  She has clairvoyance and believes she can see into the future – she says she has a 100% track record yet NON of her prophecies have come true – therefore she is a FALSE PROPHET.

False prophets love to not put dates on their prophecies. The fact of the matter is this, just one false prophecy makes you a False Prophet. So if she spoke 10 prophecies and 9 came true and 1 was false she is a False Prophet because God did not speak to her. Satan to can predict the future, especially since he is making it happen.

So how do we know she is false:

1) There are no such things are Prophets in this day and age
2) All genuine prophets are mentioned in the Bible
3) A Genuine prophet of God has a 100% track record
4) All genuine prophets prophecies pointed to Jesus Christ and all genuine prophecies and visions were written down to form the Word of God
5) Jesus Christ came and fulfilled all Prophecies
6) Everything we need to know is now written in the Bible
7) The Bible is our Lord Jesus Christ in published form (Jesus is the Word of God)
8) Jesus then gave us the Holy Spirit who now abides in us and leads us into ALL TRUTH
9) If you want to know anything, the Holy Spirit will point you to Jesus Christ
10) If you want to know anything, the Holy Spirit will show you in the Bible because in the Bible is EVERYTHING you need to know

Rev 19:10 “And I fell down before his feet to worship him. And he saith unto me, See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with thee and with thy brethren that hold the testimony of Jesus: worship God; for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”   We read here that John receives a “prophetic revelation” and falls down to “worship” the giver of this prophesy. He is “corrected” and pointed to the source of Prophecy.

We are in a relationship with God and He has given you His Spirit and He will lead you into all Truth. We do not need a “medium” to come and tell us what God wants to do in my live. No, we have His Spirit and the Word and That is ALL we need.

Now the fruit of her life has been exposed through her wheeling and dealings:

So first her doctrine is wrong which leads to incorrect ideas that she is a prophet and this shows as bad fruit in her life through theft.

She deleted her blog sometimes after 1 January 2012.

End Time Prophetic Words Author Sued for Fraud

APRIL 1, 2009
by rahabsplace

It would seem that the self-proclaimed prophet over at End Time Prophetic Words has been sued in England on multiple counts of Business Fraud and Extortion. Rosalind Miriam Franklin owns the publishing house Diggory Press. At the current time, there are no less than 83 authors trying to recover royalties, manuscripts and other services. There have been two court hearings and the next is scheduled for October.

Miriam claims:

End Times Visions and Christian prophecy for the church and for the nations from a servant of God called to speak God’s word (Miriam Franklin): bringing prophecies and prophetic words of revelation, warning of End Times apostasy and lukewarm Christianity, and trying to bring people’s hearts, minds and souls back to the Lord their God.

Evidently, she’s called to speak God’s word, just not obey it.

Here is the nutshell version from one of the defrauded authors:

Dec 15th 2008

First of all, thanks to all the authors who have taken the time to email their experiences with Mrs Franklin these past months, and especially to those of you who have sent in statements of fact to be presented in Court.
Thank you.

We now have seventy authors who have engaged Mrs Franklin’s ‘services’ since 2006 who feel they have just cause for complaint. Most report non-payment of royalties; overcharging; rudeness and aggression; and (in many cases) being attacked and falsely accused in emails if they dare to air any concerns or make enquiries about the status of their accounts.

Several aggrieved authors have already taken independent action via the Small Claims Court in order to secure the monies owed to them, and despite Mrs Franklin’s increasingly desperate attempts to stall or circumvent the process, some are reporting success. Approximately three weeks ago for example, one County Court Judgment was enforced against Diggory Press to the tune of around £1,400 UK pounds. But when PayPal tried to refund monies to another aggrieved Diggory client recently, Mrs F made sure there was nothing in the account.

Meanwhile, Mrs Franklin continues to use every trick in the book to avoid being accountable to her clients; obfuscation; feigning illness; claiming not to have received recorded documents; and the usual litany of lies, exaggerations, and false counter-accusations levied at anyone who dares to stand up to her.

Most of you will be aware that both Private Eye Magazine and The Guardian Newspaper have written articles on the situation, and we have now had two Court hearings in Cornwall. At the first hearing in August, ‘The Seventeen’ presented their Small Claims together in the hope that we would be of mutual support to each other. However, amongst many other false accusations, Mrs Franklin accused several of us of ‘fraud and conspiracy’ etc., which, despite the evidence to the contrary, obliged the Judge to schedule our cases to be heard on a ‘Multi-Track’ basis. In effect, this means scheduling the cases to a higher Court that will cost remaining claimants £1,000 each to proceed.

Naturally (and quite understandably) under the advice of the Judge, several claimants felt more inclined to try to mediate with Mrs Franklin rather than pay another £1,000 – often much more than they were claiming in the first place. It is worth noting however, that of the four-or-five claimants who agreed withdrawal terms with Mrs F – none have reported receiving monies back, despite Mrs F’s promises to the contrary. In frustration, three of them had to reinstate their claims again in Court. It now appears Mrs F’s main intention was to use those mediation agreements to ‘run out the clock’ on Court deadlines, and thus have claims struck out by default.

As things stand at present, a small but determined group of us continue to press ahead with our claims – despite a withering flood of false counter-accusations and exorbitant counter-claims from Mrs F. At the latest hearing on Dec 10th, the Judge admonished Mrs F on several occasions–as well as in writing–for the rude and uncivil manner in which she referred to certain claimants. He also drew her attention to the absurdity (although he didn’t use that word) of her counter-claim for £1,045,185 against myself – especially all the undocumented ‘costs and damages’ she seems to have pulled out of thin air. The result of the latest hearing was that we are now scheduled for a full-blown five-day civil trial sometime in 2009, where (if we get that far) we fully expect an outright win to all the remaining cases. However, given the amount of ‘evidence’ Mrs F is going to have to magic into existence if she has any hope whatsoever of presenting a reasonable or rational defence… some of us will be surprised if we ever do get to trial. It is not unreasonable to anticipate Mrs F being unable to present a coherent case or defence at the document disclosure stage – and therefore being liable for all our costs, expenses, and damages…

As always, I have to be careful about how I present the information here, but in response to many requests by aggrieved authors, may I advise that you take the following steps if you wish to extricate yourself from Mrs F’s / Diggory Press / Exposure Publishing influence:

  1. Write or email to RF formally cancelling your contract
  2. Request a full account statement and payment of royalties due (you should not have to pay for this).
  3. If you are not happy with the response, then write to Lightning Source (printer-distributors) with a copy of your ‘cancellation’ notice to RF, and advise them you are ‘in dispute’ with RF, and that she no longer has your permission to publish your copyrighted work. Lightning Source should NOT print any more of your books under these circumstances.
  4. Contact Neilsen Bookdata (UK-Europe) and Bowkers (USA) and advise you wish to have that ISBN ‘suspended’ or ‘abandoned’ as per 1 and 3 above. Their options are limited if Mrs F actually owns the ISBN – but every complaint counts, and they can eventually stop selling her more ISBNs.
  5. Lodge a Small Claims Court action via the HMCS website (Her Majesty’s Court Service).
  6. Once you have done this, feel free to contact me and I will advise as best I can how you might republish your book at minimum cost and inconvenience.
  7. Tell as many people as you can about your experiences.

Meanwhile, we are investigating why Mrs F publishes titles under different imprints. Although illegal in the US, and a ‘highly irregular’ practice in the UK, we will have to wait for more data before sharing any conclusions.

Finally – I paste below a couple of Internet links that will take you to a couple of other ‘manifestations’ of our good Mrs Franklin. On one site she poses deceptively as an ‘independent author’ who just happens to believe that Diggory Press is simply the most wonderful thing to have ever tumbled from the heavenly realm.. and, whilst repeatedly denying she is affiliated with Diggory, advises all who will listen to take their business there.. http://selfpublishingnews.wordpress.com/about/

And the second site – only recently discovered – is where Rosalind claims to be an end-times prophetess no less – in direct touch with God Himself! Given our knowledge of who ‘Miriam Franklin’ really is, I believe it’s fair to say that the posts on that site (many of which condemn liars, false prophets, charlatans and the like) beggars belief. The scary part is that the site has apparently registered over 2 million hits – on the prophetess’ words of wisdom, prophecies and revelations, as well as many ‘divinely-inspired’ judgments on various individuals and religions whom she personally deems to be apostate / heretical / or downright demon-possessed..

For example, the prophetess says..
“The charlatans a-plenty who do not fear man, God or Beast are out to fleece the vulnerable and undiscerning for every last dime… Then there are the more sinister ones who intentionally prey like vultures – …who disguise themselves as angels of light… Satan knows scripture, (and very well), albeit he twists it for his own ungodly purposes. He is a good counterfeiter, looks, walks and talks almost like a real Christian.”

Trust me, this is even better than fiction folks.. (if any link doesn’t work because Mrs F has already taken them down – then please try the others in the following message, including the archive pages…)

http://propheticwordsrevelation.blog…-biblical.html (Editor’s Note:  This site has now disappeared.)

Then there is her latest ‘enterprise’–Kingdom Come Publishing–where she has again received a ‘mandate from God’ to take as much money as she can from unsuspecting Christian authors I suppose? See for yourself folks..

(Editor’s Note:  This site has now disappeared, but the DIggory Press site clearly says Diggory Press and Kingdom Come Publishing.)

Hopefully there is enough material here to help those of you who need to, to make some speedy and informed decisions.. And please feel free to pass on this information on to any who need to hear it..

Finally, the list of the first 18 complaints (now 70) from authors on my personal website – and other related evidence. I apologise that I haven’t updated it in quite some time, but I have moved the site to new servers, and need to work out how to get access. Please scroll down the page to the Rogue’s Gallery.

Thanks again for all the encouragement and support. Next general update when we hear of any developments.

Best wishes – and a happy festive season to all..

Stephen

130 comments to Miriam Franklin – End Times Prophetic Words ‘Prophetess’ a Fraud? [UPDATED]

  • Lee

    Debs,

    I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS! I was following her blog before I found yours and I just don’t believe it! Actually, I don’t WANT to believe it. Don’t you reckon people are just slanderng her e.t.c.? I did hear that she got attacked on more than several occasions for telling the truth with her blog. And her material is almost identical to yours!

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    No, it seems to be very true Lee, I didn’t just go post this article in a flash after I heard the news. I’ve read everything and boy is there a lot of info out there on this matter and it appears to be very true. However Miriam says she is innocent.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    Also, there are a lot of discrepancies I noticed over the last 3+ years on her blog 1) visions (at that stage I did not understand the biblical impact of prophecy) 2) I noticed strange comments where she would imply (not say it out right) but imply that she was sick. Some guy even prayed for her regarding having cancer. She never said no to this comment. So when she disappeared I really and utterly thought she was ill with cancer. 3) Then she said she had info about some NAR people and her life was in danger. 4) Then all of a sudden ‘other people’ are running her website. 5) Now there is a Donations button on the website collecting money. I tried to email her twice asking her what is going on and she did not reply. Then suddenly all this comes out and it appears legit! Go do a google search on the matter and read BOTH sides of the story. Multiple authors having money stolen from them vs Miriam Franklin.

    >> I did hear that she got attacked on more than several occasions for telling the truth with her blog.

    I think what she meant was spiritual attack, not physically attacking her.

    Oh dear…can we not give her the benefit of the doubt. I mean literally, when i discovered her blog then yours I thought “these two stand up no matter what” Was she then deceiving people deliberately?

  • Lee

    Debs,

    Yes I have seen that ‘donate’ button. That wasn’t there a couple of years ago. I commented there and never got a reply. I just assumed she was busy or something. I read all the stories about her but thought that people wre just slandering her just like people slander you and say things. So I never thought anything of it.

  • Lee

    I read that someone who reps for her said she actually has been physically beaten for speaking the truth in churches and thats why she was away from the blog…

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    >> I read that someone who reps for her said she actually has been physically beaten for speaking the truth in churches and thats why she was away from the blog…

    I read elsewhere that that is not true. And if she was did she lay charges against the attackers? No, I read that she was not attacked, that what was commented was mis-read and misinterpreted.

    Besides, even if she was, what’s that got to do with this court case?

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    You don’t just land up in court for nothing. I am giving her the benefit of the doubt (to a point). As I said above in the article, “IF she is guilty…” I am not taking any sides, but the facts kinda stick out like a store thumb.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    I’ve been trying to find a way to email Miriam but the two email addresses I have don’t work. I would love to have her come here and just chat.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    I have left the following comment on her site:

    —————————–
    Hi Miriam

    Can you please come to my website and have a chat with us. I would sincerely like to know what is going on.

    Thanks
    Debs

    EDITED: Um, ok…I tried to leave a comment on her website, and I can’t comment, I am blocked. *sighs*

    thats true. I don’t know, I was thinking that she tells the truth because of her blog and thats probably why she got attacked on false accounts but…still find it hard to WANT to believe… up until now, I had regarded her as someone on par with you…in terms of the blog and material

    I know you hate to report it more than I like to read it Debs, so, the question is, do you think she is a Christian, but has suffered deception?

    I was sitting here thinking this. There is nothing more shattering than to find out you have been deceived. And this is the case. If she is guilty, it means we were ALL taken for a bunch of fools. She did a remarkable job of preaching the truth didn’t she (expect her visions).

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    >> I know you hate to report it more than I like to read it Debs, so, the question is, do you think she is a Christian, but has suffered deception?

    I aint gonna answer this, I can’t answer this. Only God knows what is going on and I can only pray for her.

    Thats why I said what I said earlier with regards to her getting attacked (spriritually and physically – if she ever did!) because so much can take place that you just don’t know whats going on anymore and people lose sight of the truth in the situation. But saying that, I absolutely refuse to believe she is false unless somehow she was stealing material from other blogs because I found her site first then yours soon after and I compared and you both had similar ‘voice’ in terms of fighting for truth. Don’t know what to say really…

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    I am just as baffled about this situation as you are Lee. Let’s wait and see, maybe she comes to speak to us. Will you go post a comment on her website asking her to come chat.

  • Lee

    I know whats it like to get falsely accused. The one doing the accusing makes it seems so accurate and so true that that then becomes the truth when in fact its a set-up. I think we’ve all experienced this to one degree or another. I didn’t think anything of her visions. I thought they fit biblically with what is going on in our times. But saying that, the church II was in had that EXACT same spirit (if it is true that she is clairvoyant. Always having visions of Jesus and things…

    I could do. I doubt she will respond to anyone. I’m pathetic. Anyway I have my problems closer to home (you know them)…I would be a hypocrite to talk about her when my situation seems more dire (from God’s point of view). At least she hasn’t ‘backslid’ like me. Shes more strong in faith and probably not gullible like me…but I’ll do so.

  • Lee

    Left a message on her endtimesprophetic website:

    I said: “Hi Miriam and admin, I have seen all the false allegations about you and I am confused. I am at http://www.discerningtheworld.com/ and Deborah and I want you to come have a chat with us to clear the air. Can you do this? We are for you and would really want to know whats going on? Please? :)
    Thanks.”

  • Lee

    Or maybe instead of saying “false allegations” do you think I should have said “allegations”? I just didnt want her or the site to think I was you or against her since she is already avoiding people and contact…

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    That’s fine. Thanks.

  • Lee

    Oh no! I posted it and now I can’t even see the comment which is waiting to be approved! I wonder if I’ll get blocked…

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    Oh gosh so it was deleted as well? Oops. Sorry dude. I don’t think she will block you. I hope…errr

  • Lee

    well…I couldn’t see it when I commented the first time…thats when I realised maybe it was not appearing…oh I’m sorry Debs, I hope your not upset with me? It is quite baffling, although I am prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt, after all, God is absolutely merciful to me, I should extend that to her…

  • Lee

    Another thing Debs, what did you mean by her visions were not biblical? can you give me more details? are you saying that no one can have visions of just that hers were weird?

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    Read the article on Prophecy above. She is clairvoyant, she is not getting these message from God.

  • Lee

    I did. So I did not know she was claiming to be a prophet. I never saw that in her comments lol

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lee

    It’s got nothing to do about claiming to be a prophet or not. She said she received visions from God to FORESEE the future to warn mankind – that’s a prophetess isn’t it? hmm.

  • Lee

    definetely. But I am just saying I had never heard or read at all that she was claiming to be one because she got visions…until now of course! thats what stumped me the most. Ah well…her blog is just sitting there inactive since 2010

  • passin'thru

    The allegations against Miriam are NOT false. The information she has given out, however, is as big a whopper as a Big Mac. She started endless sites to defame and discredit Stephen Manning who headed up the authors who were defrauded by Miriam. When baliffs went to collect on the judgment awarded Manning et al, it is reported there were NO signs of injuries. Miriam claimed to have “injuries” to her hands prohibiting her from writing and performing musically. At the same time this untruth was told, Miriam was busy creating websites to attempt to discredit Stephen Manning. Regarding the comment that Miriam is “clairvoyant”, I’ve long thought she dabbled in the occult and witchcraft especially when she used a term in an “expose” where she said Todd Bentley was doing “a bad cold reading”. Miriam’s company has also published books that have occult overtones. Miriam is always right – everyone else is wrong. I know of countless individuals who have asked her “hard” questions – those questions are never answered and the poster is blocked further from her website.

    Miriam has long forgotten – or never knew – that God said “vengeance” is HIS! Anyone who DARES to ever challenge Miriam becomes fodder for her obsessive criticism and vitriol.

    Thanks for the info!!

    I am the twin brother of Rosalind of Diggory Press. I have written elsewhere on the subject under my own name and that of ‘inquisitor’.
    I’m not answering personal questions about her and won’t be getting into any debate here.

    Diggory were the cheapest uk publisher, around 1000 titles were published and so far despite the protracted internet hate campaign orchectrated by stephen manning of checkpoint press so far I have yet to see much actual evidence for this.

    Just it might be worthwhile to closer examine the allegations against her and look at the current and past legal situation. As neither the police or trading standards were prepared to take the case on originally it became a civil matter. Assuming the judge has seen all the evidence, I feel the court’s verdict is more important than the unverifiable opinions of often misinformed bloggers, many of whom had their own hidden agendas including the director of checkpoint press, dr stephen manning.

    “there are no less than 83 authors trying to recover royalties”

    “Finally, the list of the first 18 complaints (now 70) from authors on my personal website ” (anonymous I might add)

    Except only a few, maybe half a dozen (never had a straight answer from Dr stephen manning on this despite repeated requests where it has been discussed before) bothered to attend court. Maybe they had a genuine case, I don’t know.

    Claims of the serious criminal offences of fraud, theft, extortion etc from a business competitor should be taken as just opinions without a court ruling to confirm that. He had his day in court, and he won. What he forgot to mention was the verdict: He was awarded just 80 pounds uk. In his ‘court report’ the all important verdict was NOT mentioned…although derogatory comments about her dress sense and her husband were included. This 80 pound judgement is being appealed later this month I understand. Dr manning really, really wants to win this appeal otherwise this whole fraud and extortion thing may just be a lot of hot air.

    As to whether it would be worthwhile using baliffs to collect just 80 pounds is doubtful, also as the case is subject to appeal I’m not even sure if the amount was payable. Three years down the line and so many of his claims have yet to be verified.

    I did post my concerns on rahabs place and various other ‘chrisitian’ forums but my comments were not posted. Great morality, thanks rahab.

    As for ‘the guardian’ and ‘private eye’ columns, Newspapers know that the crippling costs of libel action effectively allow them to write what they want about others and often do. To date neither publication has seen fit to update the outcome of the court’s rulings.

    As for the ETPW angle, I have yet to see any firm evidence for the connection between Diggory and ETPW. Note quite sure of it’s relevance anyway.

    What about the other people did they win as well?

    With regard to the newspaper cutting, The Guardian later amended the article, seems they may have been mislead by their source.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2008/sep/13/9

    This article was amended on Friday 15 May 2009

    A complaint has been made to the Readers’ Editor by Diggory Press about this article.

    No rhyme … nor reason

    As well as my day job, I write and perform poetry. I have been asked many times for printed copies of my verse. I found Diggory Press in Cornwall – a “print-on-demand publisher” – in early June. I paid £279 through Paypal for its “silver service” which promised to produce books from a computer disk to a high standard, including full colour covers.

    Since then, I have had nothing despite repeated emails. I complained to Paypal but fell foul of its 45-day limit on complaints. Please help.
    DS, Kent

    Diggory Press promises much on its impressive website – and features satisfied authors including Conservative MP Bill Wiggin who wrote a glowing testimonial about a book he wrote.

    But you paid three months ago to have a volume of poetry printed and now the process has ground to a halt.

    You were told you would get the books by early August at the latest – instead, you have no volumes to sell while Diggory has your money and does not respond to your emails.

    Yours is not an isolated case. Capital Letters knows of at least 15 disappointed authors, many now using the legal process to demand refunds from £300 to more than £5,000.

    Diggory is run by director Rosalind Miriam Franklin, 38 and her husband Nigel, 44. She also runs Kingdom Come Publishing whose “statement of faith” states it “has received a mandate to go forth to the Nations, offering new authors a chance to impact the world with the gifts God has entrusted to them”.

    Capital Letters sent several emails to Franklin. Other than an acknowledgement, there was no response.

    There is no phone. The site says: “We are extremely busy. We do not deal with authors by telephone – ever – without exception.”

    As for Paypal, its 45-day limit is simply not fit for any purchase which was always going to take a long time to deliver by its very nature.

    deborah, i think you need to take a look at these two websites before you get taken for a ride the same way peacebringer7 was. if you do a little investigating about who is behind the attacks against miriam and when and how all this started. you will get a completely different story. here are the two websites: and http://wondereraround.wordpress.com/

    this i believe all started about 3 years back when miriam was exposing todd bentley and his false ministry. rehab at rahabsplace is a super super fan and a devotie of todd bentley, C peter wagner and the whole crowd. i saw a comment thread on miriams blog where she and rahab went back and forth at each other. rehab believes todd bentley is an annoited man of God and miriam does not. so rehab did not like the fact that miriam was exposing her heroes and their heresies, and i believe this is how this whole thing began. my guess is, after the comment thread ended rehab decided to go digging about miriam on internet, and then came accross this diggory case against someone called rosalind miriam franklin.

    i guess after rehab could not find any dirt on miriam franklin, she decided to accuse miriam of being rosalind miriam franklin, and claimed that miriam had probably changed her name.what rahab and manning are not upfront with you about is the fact that the accused is someone named Rosalind Miriam Franklin, not miriam franklin. (whether or not the two know each other is still something ive not figured out yet). i have not looked into this issue for a while now, and i dont claim to know or have all the facts.

    onething about rehab and manning is that anyone that challenges their claims on any blog, is called miriam in disguise. take a look as peacebringer’s comment thread at http://peacebringer7.wordpress.com/2009/09/11/miriam-franklin-needing-prayer/ and imspeakingtruth’s blog. i did a little search about this manning guy. i found that he is such a liar and cant keep his story straight. first he will lie and claim to be a follower of Jesus, then when you go on his websites, you find moony, new age and abominable things. why does he lie about being a christian and a wounded brother in the Lord by miriam fraklin? why doesn’t he just tell the truth about who he is and whom he worships as God.why does he choose to come to the church as a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

    i have to say also deborah, that im so dissapointed by the way you presented this post. what does your disagreements with miriam have to do with worldly issue like this. i for one do not agree with everything you have on this blog, but if i come across any accusation about you on the internet, im not all of a sudden going to say; “ahaaa…it must be true, because there are some things on her blog i disagree with”.
    im just trying to say, please try to keep the two issues separate. if miriam has prophesied falsely, i for one would like to know, and it must be brought to light,and expose any false prophecies. but what she is being falsely accused of here is a worldly issue. i have tried to look at both sides fairly but so far i find manning’s info and claims too porous. when i tried to make a post on ilovetoddbently’s blog, i was called miriam in disguise. and i got the same treatment at rahab’s place, and they sensored my comments.and going through the comments threads on their blogs, i realized that im not the only person being accused of being miriam.

    i for one do not know miriam personally. i have learnt a lot from her site as well as yours deborah. and i do appreciate the work you both do.i have had some disagreements with miriam on her blog too, but that does not mean i will believe everything i hear about her before i check it out for myself.

    it is true that miriam was attacked. after trying to get someone on her blog to respond about her status and getting no response, i went on her youtube page and posted a pm there. someone did get back to me. i will try to para phrase what they said in a nutshell. my question was, where is miriam, how is she doing and if there is going to be any new posts on her blog etc. and the response i got was: miriam is still not well at all after her attack, he/she said a breakthrough is really needed and that she was suffering so much because of her injuries. they also mentioned that she is suffering also financialy as she is not able to work while recuperating.they said the slanders and threats against her were getting worse and affecting everyone around her (family,friends). they said the moderator on her blog had to stop moderating the blog because he too was being threatened and slandered, so he stopped moderating to protect his family. (they did not give me any hope of miriam coming back to blog any time soon at all, but emphasized that ONLY a miracle from God will give miriam a break through).

    there used to be a thread on endtimespropheticwords blog where people could post latest news articles, but it was removed along with the about this blog page. i dont know if you were aware of it or not. but i asked some questions about miriam on it and someone responded. i will try to paraphrase what i gathered from there.
    aparently, miriam had taken a break from blogging, and during that time was attacked by some people that she had exposed on her blog (the NARiez), but the injuries were not as bad as the latest attack. and apparently the threats against her also escalated because she had gathered a lot of damning evidence against some big leaders in the apostate church system and wanted to post them on her blog. this info that she has on them is so serious that if it came out, the exposed leaders would be so shamed that it might even cost them their ministries. that is why they are apparently keeping up the pressure and threatening her to not even mention their names of her blog. and i was also told that they told miriam that they would be watching her every move, even on her blog. that info has still not been posted to date.

    i have to say that these people sound more to me like the mafia than the church, but we know that they are not part of the church, because Jesus said; by their fruits you will know them. and i must say anyone associated with todd bentley or c peter wagner and all their leaderships; their fruit stinks, and is not of God at all. and if any of them read this, i want to say to them: may the Lord Jesus rebuke you!

    in the latest attack, miriam had gone to some church where the pastors in question were abusing their flock. she was prophesying to them and telling them to repent and stop abusing their flock, when she got attacked by the same pastors. and aparently the attack was really really bad and made the first attack look like a walk in the park.

    i asked if she had gone to the hospital and if she had pressed charges. i was told that because miriam considers it a church issue, she refused to press charges, saying that she will let God and the church judge the issue, and did not want to drag church issues into the worldly system.about going to the hospital i was told that, she had gone to the hospital, but unfortunately because of the extent of her injuries she was still in very bad condition. one other thing i was told is that miriam did not want to make a post on her blog about the attack, because she does not want any focus/or spotlight on herself, but rather on God.

    all the comments i made asking questions about miriam, and the responses that followed were all removed by the moderator who left a message saying ‘comment moved to relevant post’. i left another comment asking where the relevant post was but i never got a response. but i understand why they removed them. its because they probably thought they were revealing too much info about miriam and her family and might make her even more vulnerable. the person responding to questions was also very reluctant to say somethings,saying she was not sure if it might make her attackers mad or not.so i think they were removed for that purpose.im also going to withhold some info that i was told, because from my own judgement it might be too personal.
    having said that, i really feel bad now for revealing what i know, not knowing if im helping miriam by saying what im saying here, or making things worse by putting her family in more danger. i know it is not my place to make the call, but i couldn’t let this slander by rahab and manning migrate to this blog and not say anything about it. may the Lord have mercy on Miriam Franklin and her family in the name of Jesus Christ. Arise oh Lord, and let your enemies be scattered! in the name of Jesus Christ.

    all i ask is that you please pray for miriam and ask that the Lord have mercy on her and give her a miracle and speedy recovery, do not let satan and his agents distract you or anyone reading this from praying for our sister in the Lord.

    let me comment about the ‘donate button’ on her blog. that one did suprise me because i know for a fact that miriam would not accept any donations on her blog, she would always say give it to the poor, and i did respect her for that because that was very biblical. somebody had posted a comment on her blog asking the moderator about the donate button and even called it a red flag. the moderator’s response was something like: ‘they had talked to miriam about letting the church support her if they choose to since she is not able to work because of her injuries. even though miriam was in disagreement with it, he said they had to make an executive decision and put it there because she does need the help during this difficult time she is in. he also mentioned that miriam had operated that blog the whole time she was there and paid for some of the features on it and never asked for any donations, but worked to support her family instead.’ i for one do not see anything wrong with helping out a sister in need. those who want to support her will, and those who dont want to support her will not. and there is nothing wrong with that.

    So you are saying there are 2 Franklins, a Rosalind Miriam Franklin and a Miriam Franklin . Well that would indeed change the entire investigation.

    Secondly I apologise for the way I set out the initial report – I will amend it

    The donate button has been up for some time, surely Miriam’s ‘injuries’ are better now? Just a thought.

  • Lee

    ItHellWithoutJesus,

    Thanks for that info. I wouldn’t be suprised if there was two different people called Miriam.

    Debs, can you now see why I was reluctant to take the article to heart before? what I said earlier about Miriam regarding the attacks e.t.c.? I wasn’t lying! I read that on her blog that she had been down! I knew something was up! We HAVE to give her the benefit of the doubt and pray for her Debs! I seriously believe ItsHellWithoutJesus!

  • Lee

    ItsHellWithoutJesus,

    I believe you wholeheartedly. What you said above is what I thought about when I read this article! I KNEW that something wasn’t right! But…

    So are you saying, like Deborah asked, that there are two Miriams? If so, that would indeed make sense the real Miriam in question would be scared of these NAR/WOF guys if she was to expose them! Well it is no secret that those guys are a by-product of the Anti-christ movement of Kingdom Now and Peace/Prosperity movement!

    and I never thought anything about the Donations button anyhow…

  • ItsHellWithoutJesus

    yes there is two franklins. miriam franklin of endtimespropheticwords blog and rosalind franklin of diggory press. manning, rahab and co. want to claim that the two are one person.

    this is from
    its only part of the discussion about the case between Stephen T Manning and Rosalind Franklin of Diggory Press. i thought it might give you an idea of what went on in court.

    Diggory Press v Stephen T Manning Court Case. DIGITAL FILES – THEFT AND EXTORTION

    …To explain this a little bit more clearly for technophobes – it’s rather like if you go and get something printed at an old fashioned printers (i.e. a non digital printers that use print plates). Even though the printer may design your item of stationery for you, and then create print plates especially for your stationery, and then print off your stationery items using these same print plates, you as this printer’s customer would have no right of ownership to the valuable print plates he used to produce your item. You’d only have rights to the end item, the actual stationery produced. You could not take that printer’s plates to use at another printers for a new print run! Unless of course, you bought the plates from the first printers by separate negotiation. (It’s possible also that the printer’s design for your stationery would be copyrighted, so if you produced ‘knock off’ items on your photocopier or at another printers you could also be breaching the printer’s copyright and breaking the law.)

    Manning took Rosalind Franklin personally (not the Diggory Press Ltd company she worked for) to the small claims court, suing her for “his” digital files along with a load of other concocted nonsense he’d made up to smear her. This was part of Manning’s ongoing harassment against Rosalind, an openly Christian businesswoman.

    The small claims court is a civil (not criminal court) where anyone can attempt to sue anyone else for pretty much anything – it does not mean their claim has any truth or substance to it whatsoever, or is even against the right person to being with. (Manning even had the brazenness to claim relief from court fees to make his abusive, fictitious and harassing claims, but that’s another story.)

    So anyway there was a court case between Manning and Rosalind Franklin of Diggory Press where a judge heard evidence about Manning’s digital files claim.

    Rosalind Franklin of Diggory Press Ltd when giving evidence on this issue explained it to the court by equating it to a professional wedding photographer taking photos at a wedding. The photographer takes “your pictures”, using your face, in your environment at your wedding, having been ordered by you and paid for by your money; and he’s working on your behalf in response to your specific requests. You are entitled to purchase pictures taken under this deal from the photographer as many times as you like in the future, however you would NOT be entitled to have outright ownership of the negativescontaining “your images” of “your occasion” (unless this was separately stipulated in the contract). And you would also be technically breaking the photographer’s copyright if you tried to bypass the photographer and get prints of his work elsewhere, or otherwise tried to copy it by scanning it or photocopying it. In such a way, Rosalind Franklin successfully argued, digital files were like the negatives of the book, and the author had no rights to demand them for free, especially and even more so when the contract between Diggory Press Ltd and Manning clearly stipulated that digital files remained the property of the publisher and would have to be purchased by separate negotiation.

    Under such circumstances, any newly-wed trying to sue his wedding photographer for “his” negatives, and any author trying to sue the printers for “his” print plates would be laughed out of court – rather as Manning was, the judge ruling in Rosalind Franklin and Diggory Press’s favour in November 2009 that Manning had no right to the digital files Diggory Press had worked on for him – which, of course, Manning had known all along anyway.

    The evidence illustrates Manning had not been innocently mistaken. The abundant evidence shows that Manning knew the files were not his to keep from day one. This is shown in his own emails on the issue before his failed extortion attempt, as well as the clear contract between him and Diggory which was not in tiny print, plus there is more damning evidence from his own Checkpoint Press publishing website which I’ll go into shortly. Also, IF these digital files were Manning’s property, then once the finalised files had been checked over and authorised by Manning, Manning would have then used these files directly with the printers for himself instead of continuing to use Diggory Press as the middleman once the publishing process was over, as he did in fact do. He would not have placed orders for books with DP but with the printers direct instead. So his behaviour for many months after the files were finished for him makes no sense unless he is lying now, which we, of course, assert.

    Rosalind Franklin has consistently stated to the courts and the police that Manning is not innocent – he is a criminal, a serial blackmailer who was trying to extort these valuable files along with some money from Diggory Press, with the threat to smear her and her business if she did not give into his unreasonable demands. She refused, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    Diggory Press as a company, and RF as a person, have had one of the most sustained, lying, hateful and vindictive orchestrated smear campaigns conducted against them possible. This is in addition to everything else behind the scenes such as death threats, And for what? All for Manning’s greed – and a sick pleasure at taunting and punishing his prey for not giving into him, boasting he is teaching them a lesson. Even though Manning’s first alleged extortion attempt failed, Manning is allegedly carrying on lying, smearing, threatening, bullying, intimidating and harassing his prey with the hope that she will crack and bow under all the relentless pressure and pay him off.

    Manning by his writings demonstrates an evident hatred against professing evangelical Christians like Rosalind Franklin so this may be an additional motive for his harassment. Certainly Manning taunts her regularly calling her deluded for holding her professed beliefs. Manning has revealed he hated that Rosalind Franklin and Diggory Press helped produce a Christian charity’s “non tolerant” book which showed up religious cults and sects including the Unification church (the Moonies) to which Manning and his spouse (that he was married to in a Moonie mass wedding ceremony) have had long term associations. So who knows all this criminal’s additional motives in this campaign other than ‘pure’ greed for filthy lucre and personal ambition.

    The ironic thing for all their vilification is that Diggory Press Ltd had been so good to Manning and had significantly undercharged him. Rosalind Franklin personally had gone more than the extra mile with Manning at a tiny price, and had graciously put up with him taking a lot of liberties even before he made his extortive demands. She personally, and the company, gave an excellent service at a fraction of all the other firms out there – doing literally ten times more for authors, at literally ten times less the price charged by most other self publishing operators. It was no wonder that in a tainted industry Diggory Press shone and had such an impeccable reputation, and no wonder they were growing so rapidly with so many repeat customers. Until Manning started to smear them, that is.

    For a web based business dependant on getting custom through the web, mud sticks. And one malicious man can pretend to be many people from the safety of his computer, and make it appear something has gone on to “the many” that has not even happened to the one. Diggory Press WERE too good to be true, but only because Rosalind was a mug and charged too little for what she did. But for those what suspected it was too good to be true, when they heard the mud they were all too inclined to believe it.

    In addition to all Manning’s lies against Diggory Press and Rosalind Franklin and any other innocents caught in the path – hundreds and hundreds of Manning lies, ever evolving, constantly contradicting – and an ongoing barrage of other dirty tricks, threats and harassment, Manning did dirty things like entering multiple false claims against Diggory Press Ltd in the small claims court (alleging anything damaging he could make up), and then going to the press and saying “Diggory Press have all these claims against them for fraud, theft, abuse etc etc ..” and the press printed that as fed to them by Manning without checking it out. This sounded terrible and did make their name mud, but what the reckless press did not report was all these claims were all nonsense claims entered and paid and sponsored for by Manning, operator of a wannabe rival business, Checkpoint Press, and that none of these claims had any truth or substance to them – some of these claims even used false names!

    Some of these claims were so bogus it was laughable (e.g. the person, “VK’ who was not even a customer claiming £250 for the loss of an unsolicited CD disc she’d supposedly sent into DP), – laughable claims that is, if it had not had such a devastating affect on Rosalind and her business, and also the genuine Diggory Press customers who suffered because of Manning’s criminal and perjurious activity which in time affected all of them…

  • passin'thru

    Rosalind Miriam Franklin and Miriam Franklin are one and the same.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    passing’thru

    Can you prove this?

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    See I am still feeling that there is something wrong here.

    Here were have 2 ladies (supposedly) both Evangelical Christians, with almost the same name. That alone can make one suspicious.

  • Hi Deborah – sorry to intervene here, but this debate was recently brought to my attention, and I believe I should leave a few comments.

    The facts of the Diggory issue are that a number of us spent a great deal of time, effort and money in the British Courts taking on Rosalind Miriam Franklin on charges of deliberate fraud and deception, and although a good number of claimants had to drop out along the way due to the costs of continuing and intimidation from Mrs Franklin, we eventually won our case in Nov 2009. And yes, Rosalind Miriam Franklin of Diggory Press is one and the same as ‘Miriam Franklin’ the self-proclaimed prophetess.

    Please see: //checkpoint.ie/roguesgallery.html
    (This webpage was reluctantly put back online in response to a series of recent cyber attacks by her brother, Mr Brendan O’Neill, amongst ‘unknown others’)

    Because Mrs Franklin employed so many false identities on the Internet – firstly to deceptively promote her publishing businesses, as well as to attack anyone who tried to expose her, it soon became a relatively fruitless exercise trying to counteract all the deception, lies and innuendo thrown at those of us who took the moral position. So up went the Rogues Gallery – our one effective defence in the face of such incredible duplicity and malice.

    http://checkpoint.ie/Truth%20Test%20for%20Mrs%20Rosalind%20Miriam%20Franklin%20of%20Liskeard.pdf

    Because of the inordinate amount of time spent in online discussions with individuals who hide behind false identities (such as ‘ItsHellWithoutJesus’ above), we will only debate issues online with persons who are willing to identify themselves. Accordingly, we invite ‘ItsHellWithoutJesus’ to now identify herself here… unless of course, she has something to hide?

    http://checkpoint.ie/RMFVariousAliases.pdf

    The very well-informed ‘ItsHellWithoutJesus’ above also deceptively refers to websites that were in fact constructed by Rosalind Miriam Franklin. These are only three of ten such websites Mrs Franklin cloned and put online after losing the Court case. We eventually got fed up writing to Internet agencies to shut down these defamatory websites, and are now preparing a civil case for defamation against Mrs Franklin and her twin brother Brendan O’Neill (of Birmingham UK)- the two persons we can definitely identify as being behind these websites. Mr Brendan O’Neill by the way, is at the moment being investigated by the police for his part in another criminal online attack that attempted to draw ‘unwanted paramilitary attentions’ to my family and myself recently. So you can see folks, that these are not particularly nice people – despite Mrs Franklin’s questionable claims to being a prophetess..

    I am a firm believer in standing up for what is right Deborah – which is why I would not lie down and let Mrs Franklin get away with her multiple offences, and thankfully we received a great deal of support from scores of other decent people she had defrauded. There was never any malicious agenda against Mrs Franklin, her businesses, or her beliefs – just a grim determination to see the Court cases to conclusion – no matter what she threw at us. It was a thoroughly disillusioning and disheartening experience to go through, but finally, after three-and-a-half years and five different Courts, the Judge gave his findings..

    http://checkpoint.ie/TorquayReport.pdf

    And by the way, Mrs Franklin was never physically attacked – at least not when she said she was. We saw her in Court just a few days after those claims went online, and the only thing she was suffering from (as far as we could see) was an attitude of incredible arrogance, and utter disrespect for the Court.

    There is literally no point in trying to debate an issue online when one’s opponent has no respect for the truth, and absolutely no moral scruples. My own integrity rests on the facts displayed on the Rogues Gallery; my reputation amongst those who know me personally; those who have done business with me; the outcome of the Court cases, and the fact that I do not hide behind pseudonyms.

    http://www.checkpointpress.com/testimonials.html

    The agenda here is clear. It is not truth or justice, it is simply vengeance and malice against those of us who exposed the uncomfortable truth. Conducting these cyber-trials online is a cowardly response by those already proven guilty by the justice system. If Brendan O’Neill or ‘ItsHellWithoutJesus’ (whoever she may be?) have any evidence whatsoever that we have at any time done anything illegal, then they should of course take their concerns to the authorities.

    Alternatively, they can share their personal details with me at stmphd@mail.com so we can include them in the upcoming defamation case.

    Finally, Mrs Franklin was due again at Court in London yesterday, April 14th. Perhaps the well-informed ‘ItsHellWithoutJesus’ could update us on the outcome of that latest hearing? After all, it would be interesting to know who’s to blame for the verdict this time..?

  • passin'thru

    Take a look at all the confusion “itshellwithoutJesus” is trying to spin. That should tell you something. Rosalind M. O’Neill Franklin owned Diggory with her husband, Nigel T. Franklin.

  • Lavrai

    Hello, Deborah. I hope you’re well.

    I read about this sometime last year and, finding it hard to believe, did some digging online. It does appear that there is more than one Miriam Franklin in England (which is extremely common, as I’ve encountered at least one woman with the exact same name as myself… and not to speak of my brother who shares the exact first and last name with several other men).

    Anyway, the publisher party denies any connection to or knowledge of the MF of the end time prophecy website, and vice versa. I never sensed any vindictive attitude during the years I followed MF’s prophecy blog, not in her postings and not in her comments/conversations with visitors.

    It is not hard to believe, that the enemies of GOD are at play here… LORD knows they have plenty of reason to try and discredit this woman. I have not seen any sufficient evidence for me to doubt Miriam’s prophecies. I pray that she’s doing well. GOD is always in control.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Stephan

    Thanks for coming to comment.

    I think the thing I want to establish is, is the Miriam Frankin from ETPW the same Rosalind Miriam Franklin from Diggory Press.

    How did you come to the conclusion first time round that the MF from ETPW was the same RMF who owns Diggory Press?

    Is it possible that the reason Rosalind never had any signs of being attacked when you saw her is court was because she is not the same Miriam Franklin who owns ETPW?

    Please excuse me for asking these questions, but I need to understand that we are 100% dealing with the same person here.

    I am all for justice, for the right person.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lavrai

    Hey there Mister! How you doing!?

    My hope is that we can establish that we are dealing with 2 different people here. *I hope* I would love to see Miriam from ETPW out of this mess.

    Actually he isn’t, and if he really was I really doubt the police would be asking Stephen Manning to broadcast their ongoing investigations all over the internet for them. I have actually contacted the police on this (the claimed ongoing investigation) matter myself. His ‘uk cyber crimes’ organisation don’t even exist, or certainly not by that name.

    As for stephen’s accusation that I was in anyway involved in trying to set him up with the IRA “for his part in another criminal online attack that attempted to draw ‘unwanted paramilitary attentions’ to my family and myself recently.” anyone might care to read the thread in question and read what I actually wrote:

    http://www.topix.com/forum/news/irish-republican-army/TU3BQEHASQ8A34ELF

    Even Manning really does have any history with the British Army, I question whether if it really would make him a target for the IRA now. There are tens of thousands of ex-serviceman who are quite open about their past service records, most of whom will have had done several tours of Northern Ireland as was the norm for any squaddie at the time. Also I doubt if the paramilitaries really need to refer to online internet slanging matches for their intelligence. It seemed to me at the time a rather clumsy attempt to get paramilitaries to do other people’s dirty work. As to who was setting who up that is unclear too.

    My posts were hardly supporting the malicious and unproven rumors being written about him on that forum. What is good for the Goose ain’t good for the Gander in my book. The only reason I commented on the thread was as he initially accused my Sister of being behind it, then myself, then locals on the island, then local police… I think the words ‘barking’ and ‘mad’ come to mind. And this nutter really thinks he has a right to sue others for defamation.

  • passin'thru

    Ir IS the same person. Stephen Manning has documented it in his “rogues gallery”.

    Extensive research via the Net proves the issue as well.

    Even Brendan referred to his twin sister as “rmf” – initials for Rosalind Miriam Franklin. At another site where someone was taking Rosalind/Miriam to task for being a “false” prophet”, Miriam ran to her own defense with a very belitting reply and said “refer to me as ‘Miriam'”, not Rosalind.

    Miriam started a blog in 2007 and posted on 2 sites regarding same blog and signing off as “Rosalind Franklin”.

    You all are analyzing this way too logically – use your inner witness aka discernment.

  • passin'thru

    Secondly, I’d have a very hard time believing the “tale” “ItshellwithoutJesus” has presented even if I’d never heard of Diggory Press, Rosalind Miriam Franklin, Miriam Franklin and/or ETPW.

    That’s some wild tale – I don’t believe one iota of it. It’s the type of “drama” Miriam creates as she has on her blog “wonderaround”.

    Tell me something please, are you in contact with Miriam Franklin in any away?
    Who was running her website when she was missing in action for those few months?
    Why is she not back? Where is she now?

  • STM

    Hello Again Deborah… Just a very quick one this time to counteract Brendan O’Neill’s latest lies posted above. If you would care to contact me at my email address, I will send you in confidence a copy of the correspondence from UK and Irish Police regarding the investigations into Mr O’Neill’s activities. [DTW: Stephan I am not interested in any investigations at the movement, my mission at the moment is this: to ascertain if Miriam Franklin from ETPW is the same ROSALIND Miriam Franklin from Diggory Press. So far I have seen no conclusive evidence of such. But believe me my eyes are peeled. For now I view these 2 people as separate people - show me Stephan that they are one and the same person. Please. I need to know as do many others.]

    At least five, and possibly nine criminal investigations are underway regarding an ongoing campaign of harrasment, intimidation and cyberstalking against my family and myself.. and amongst others involved, Mr Brendan O’Neill is in the thick of it. And by the way, just like his sister, he was only exposed when he ‘accidentally’ revealed who he was.. and we in turn were able to put the pieces together. The link he posted above should give readers a good idea of his real character and temperament… and of course, the reported ‘incident’ at the start of that thread never actually happened.. as he well knows.

    I also posted a detailed response regarding the identity of Miriam Franklin. Did you get that okay? If not, I can resend it.. although I don’t wish to become further embroiled in fruitless and time-consuming exchanges with RMF and co.. other than to protect my own good name. Thanks. [DTW, nope it did not show up, please resend it. Updated/ Nevermind, I found it, it landed in the SPAM section.]

    [I am not here to cause any trouble for you, I wish you all the best and hope this all comes to and end soon, and I know it must feel like a broken record having to answer the same questions over and over again, but please bear with me.]

    (Response to the identity of RMF issue..)

    Hi Deborah..

    Just a quick response to help clarify the issue of the real identity of ‘Miriam Franklin’, end times prophet..

    Readers should look at each of the following screenshots in sequence, taking note of the fact that a certain ‘Rosalind Franklin’ or ‘RM Franklin’ posts under those specific names as the host of the ‘Miriam Franklin’ endtimesprophecy website in 2007..

    Firstly, ‘Miriam’ denies she is Rosalind..

    Then, we have ‘Rosalind Franklin’ responding to posters on Miriam’s site using the name ‘Rosalind Franklin’ – a mistake on her part perhaps? But this raises the question.. why hasn’t ‘Miriam’ ever explained these apparent errors..? And why did she immediately remove those posts and shut down that website, and why hasn’t she ever clearly identified herself since.. if she really isn’t Rosalind Miriam Franklin of Diggory Press?

    ——————-

    —————-

    ..and proof that we repeatedly asked her to identify herself – whilst she (as Miriam) was telling visitors to her prophecy blog that we had never contacted her..

    (cont..)

  • STM

    (cont from above..)

    On this webpage; http://checkpoint.ie/roguesgallery.html you will find a raft of examples of Mrs Franklin’s ability and willingness to deceive, mislead and attack others.. And these are only a few of the examples we were able to find.. After years of unending abuse, we really hoped we would be able to put this saga behind us, and had even pulled the Rogues Galley website for a while..

    I truly regret I have to say this, but as long as Rosalind Miriam Franklin and her brother Brendan O’Neill continue the personal attacks and deception online – the Rogues Gallery materials will, indeed must remain up online so the truth will be known.

    Please don’t be deceived folks. Mrs Franklin and her pseudonymous personas / collaborators are capable of the most prolific deceptions – and of the most ruthless attacks on anyone who crosses them. Here, as ‘Miriam’ for example, she castigates someone on her prophecy website, accusing the poster of being aligned with Satan.. something all too regularly repeated..

    [DTW: I've read this and this does not prove that Miriam Franklin from ETPW is ROSALIND Miriam Frankin from Diggory Press]

    ..and I won’t even begin to list the mountains of abuse that continue to be heaped upon those of us who successfully took her to Court.. particularly myself. Here is a statement she put on her Diggory website.. so full of lies and misdirection it’s hard to know where to start. Who was suing who for example?

    [DTW: This again does not prove that Miriam Franklin from ETPW is ROSALIND Miriam Franklin from Diggory Press]

    Please take a few minutes to explore the clear evidence on the Rogues Gallery folks.. and let the evidence speak for itself.

    http://checkpoint.ie/roguesgallery.html [DTW: I don't see CLEAR CUT EVIDENCE anywhere (unless I have missed it - and if I have, my apologies, in which case I would like someone to POINT it out to me) that the Miriam Franklin from ETPW is the same as the ROSALIND Miriam Franklin from Diggory Press]

    I hope this will now put the Miriam-identity question to bed – and while we’re here – perhaps ‘Lee’ and ‘Lavrai’ above will confirm their real identities, so that no-one reading these posts would have any reason to think there might be some hidden agenda on their parts?

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    STM (Stephan)

    Lee and Lavrai don’t need to reveal their identities – I can vouch that they are not Miriam Franklin. They are/were readers of ETPW that want to know the truth and nothing but the truth.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    STM (Stephan)

    I initially asked you;

    – How did you come to the conclusion first time round that the MF from ETPW was the same RMF who owns Diggory Press?

    – Is it possible that the reason Rosalind never had any signs of being attacked when you saw her is court was because she is not the same Miriam Franklin who owns ETPW?

    Can you please answer me on this.

    I have also been analysing the writing of Rosalind vs Miriam Franklin on all pieces of evidence and I am sorry to say, but they are the same.

    Ok, I can now bow my head in shame for Miriam Franklin. I pray for her and her husband and I pray that the Lord God moves in their lives.

  • Brendan

    Deb, Sorry but not answering personal questions about my sister or my family, as I said previously. Feel free to question me about any comments I have made online about Diggory Press or Stephen Manning’s checkpoint press.

    You won’t ever get a straight answer from Stephen Manning on anything, been trying to get some answers on the specifics of the Diggory Press case for two years now. Questions are answered with more questions or just a references to his authoratitive ‘Rouge’s Gallery’. If you are really lucky you might even get to hear about his ‘Miriam Franklin victims support group” (sic) that he claims to co-ordinate.

    As for the ETPW / Diggory Press connection, sorry I just don’t see any obvious link between them, apart from numerous internet postings emanating from one, so far unverified, source. If you think I’m being evasive, bear in mind I’ve not seen her for over a decade, I just don’t know. Maybe it is none of my business either.

    What I know is his version of events regarding the Diggory case was grossly exaggerated. Perhaps Stephen would like to clearly list the final outcome of his four year legal battle with Diggory: plaintiff’s names, book titles, court time, place and dates, verdict and judgement amount awarded and costs if applicable. To this date I’ve never had a straight answer on this. Irrespective of the ETPW angle, you have repeated the ‘fraud, theft and extortion’ allegations here and therefore it is relevant as to the what the final verdict was.

    “…he was only exposed when he ‘accidentally’ revealed who he was..”

    ‘Accidentally’ yea right, some accident, repeated about ten times on that same thread, now ‘accidentally’ on this one.

    “…and of course, the reported ‘incident’ at the start of that thread never actually happened.. as he well knows.”

    How would I know ? I don’t play football at your club, never been to your island. What sort of nonsense is this. (he is fishing for more libel damages methinks) My opinion was that such accusations should be dealt with by the appropriate authorities, and this ‘trial by internet’ that he is so fond of was inappropriate, on an IRA forum of all places. Note how he likes to twist the truth up, Read through the whole thread yourself and draw your own conclusions.

    Lee, Lavria, feel free to comment, this is an open forum. Not interested who you are, where you live, your email adress etc. just what you have to say. As always, beware of sociopathic cyberstalkers and revealing confidential information online…

  • Thanks for checking out the evidence folks. I apologise if I offended anyone in erroneously suggesting that other posters might be RMF or her supporters in disguise, but unfortunately it has happened so many times before..

    In addition to the evidence above, we (claimants in the civil cases) had also contacted ‘Miriam’ Franklin via her prophecy website in 2007-08, and sections of those messages were later quoted out of context by Rosalind Miriam Franklin in the smear campaigns as well as in in legal paperwork – and as Deborah already pointed out, the syntax, prose and spellings of ‘both’ personas are identical too.

    Thanks also Deborah for acknowledging that my family and I are going through a very difficult time. Hopefully justice and truth will eventually prevail.

  • passin'thru

    Deborah,

    The accusatory and very blunt manner in which you make assumptions (very wrongt, I might add) about me does not exactly make me all “warm & fuzzy” to give an answer.

    Regarding discernment, it seems one cannot see the forest for the trees.

    I am of neither category you so delightly attempted to put me into.

    This is your blog – perhaps you might speak a little more kindly to visitors?

    I’m not easily hoodwinked and would never buy into the tales ItsHellWithoutJesus easily fell for.

    You have a right to ask – but with graciousness to your “guests”

  • Lee

    Debs

    >>You can just pray for them :(

    hmmm…thats we can do! btw, let me make it clear Stephan and everyone else, I do not hate Miriam Franklin! I’m just sorry!

    >>The mind does boggle though

    Well…I am still baffled and miffed to be honest about why Miriam would do this after speaking such truth on her blog…it doesn’t make any sense…

  • ItsHellWithoutJesus

    i have read all the links you have above debs and oh my goodness! i am blown away! i got a sick feeling in my stomach as i was reading that prophecy by rosalind. for crying out loud that is miriam’s style of writing.

    how about i went to her endtimesprophetic blog, and found the exact same prophecy, under a different name. she is calling it ‘Vision of Church robbing the widow’s mite. i knew while reading it, that i had seen it on her blog before, it sounded way too familiar. see it here for yourself debs and be blown away:
    it is a replica of rosalind’s prophecy.

    look at the side bar on this link and you will notice a link rosalind named ‘the poisoned pond a prophecy’. well i went to her endtimesprophetic blog, and lo and behold, i found the exact same titled prophecy
    there, here it is:
    i guess she was not able to cover all her tracks!
    i dont know what to say people, i am in total shock. i truly did believe her. i dont know why she would lie about who she is, if she has nothing to hide. i’ve been deceived! if she lied about her name, what else did she lie about?

    you dont understand guys, i have learnt so much from miriam’s blog, and she has such valuable information on her blog. but im so confused as to WHY she would pull something like this, WHY,WHY,WHY?.people who dont want to disclose the truth, definitely have something to hide.

    i stopped paying attentions to stephan manning and rahab after they accused me of being miriam on rahab and peacebringer’s blog. and when i realized i was not the only person being accused of being miriam in disguise, they lost all credibility with me. so i started looking at miriam or rosalind’s side of the story.
    but hey, what can i say, they were right all along, and miriam was the one pulling our legs with her long drawn explanations.i never saw these links that deborah posted above before. but i have seen and been to the links stephan linked to above, and i did not see anything linking miriam and rosalind together.

    i would like to apologize to stephan manning. i am so,so sorry. please forgive me. i did not know. miriam’s blog is full of rebuke against false people, there is no way i could have believed she could pull something like this off, without hard hitting evidence like what i just saw.

    debs,you really handled this thread well, great job. thanks for persevering with your truth mr manning, i hope you and other authors find the justice you deserve.

  • ItsHellWithoutJesus

    i found the title of this prophecy on the right hand side bar of her old blog then i went to search for it on endtimesprophetic blog, and here it is
    it is titled ‘women in ministry and female spiritual authority’

    Thanks so much, I new that keeping a leveled head would reveal the truth. And that is all I wanted was the truth. I am an analyst by nature and everything I do gets analysed from all angles, but I needed a base to work from and that was; are we dealing with the same people here. And for that we needed proof.

    Many people are hurt because of this situation, I for one, because I too truster her (to a certain extent).

    I know the answer as to why she could pull something like this, but people are not going to like what I have to say. I will leave it for another article.

  • Thank you Deborah for handling this issue with objectivity and clarity.

    If I may, I would also like to add a brief public thanks to ‘ItsHellWithoutJesus’ for her words above, and for the private email message she sent me. In circumstances like this, personal apologies require considerable humility and courage – so thanks again.

    As for Brendan O’Neill (twin brother of Rosalind Miriam Franklin).. and his multiple attempts to mislead, confuse and attack my character.. Well, he knows he can contact me directly any time he wants and get all his questions answered.. But it seems that Brendan is not apparently interested in the truth – only in spreading more confusion and malaise – perhaps the reason why he has been banned from making any more posts here?

    The Police have recently written to say Mr O’Neill is being investigated in relation to cyber crimes. Let’s hope he will be a touch more forthcoming with them.. (link coming soon).

    The MAIN reason for this article was for CHRISTIANS out there who used to frequent EndTimesPropheticWords to find 100% proof that Miriam was indeed involved in fraudulent practices via (Diggory Press) – this has been proved – that the Miriam Franklin from ETPW IS THE SAME as the ROSALIND Miriam Franklin from Diggory Press.
    Now Christians can try and find closure and LEARN ANOTHER VALUABLE LESSON from ALL THIS – trust no one.

    As for your background, what are have done, or going to do, is not under the microscope here. I hope you understand this. I pray however that you come to find Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and know Him as I know Him. Jesus Christ has done nothing wrong to you, and never will, He has never hurt you, and never will. Yes evil people use His name in vein, and they will pay for what they have done, unless they say sorry for their evil ways. You can’t hate someone who has never wronged you, in fact you have to admire Him for giving His life for you, and all he does is ask that you believe He died for you and rose from the dead and love Him.

  • Hi Folks.. just following up on my promise to provide these updated links and hopefully, leave no more doubts about some of the misleading statements and false accusations made on this thread by Brendan O’Neill (aka ‘Extra Judicial’), twin brother of Rosalind ‘Miriam’ Franklin (the self-professed end-times prophetess..).

    Some of the images are a bit poor, but if you enlarge them they should be legible. I will replace them with better resolution links when I get some free time..

    1. Proof that Brendan O’Neill is being investigated by the police for cyber crimes etc..
    ‘Neill%20Investigated.jpg

    2. Edited complaints from 34 defrauded authors – many of whom took out Court claims against Rosalind ‘Miriam’ Franklin of Diggory Press etc..
    http://www.checkpoint.ie/DiggoryComplaints%205.pdf

    3. Court document showing bailiffs gave up in exasperation after multiple attempts to enforce Court Orders..

    4. Mrs Franklin’s appeal against the Court’s decision rejected on the grounds that “her testimony was not credible”..

    5. Final (5th?) appeal rejected by UK Courts April 2011..
    http://www.checkpoint.ie/FinalAppealRefused.pdf

    Will this be the end of it? We can only hope and pray that Mrs Franklin and her brother Brendan O’Neill will now realise that the more they engage in deception and online attacks, the more they will be exposed.

    Full details of this sad and lengthy saga can be seen on the Rogues Gallery – which had actually been taken down for a few months. But as long as the attacks and deceptions continue, it must of course remain online as a caution and a warning to all..
    http://www.checkpoint.ie/roguesgallery.html

    Kind regards to all – even to Rosalind and Brendan – if they can accept it..?

    It appears someone is approving comments on Miriam’s website. Whoever is approving them either did not read or discern a comment from the “author” of this website. Strange indeed!

    This was an easy call. I never followed Miriam Franklin from the beginning. There are ways to confirm prophecies as outlined in the Bible. If you’re wrong once, I believe the punishment was death under the Law. Naturally, we’re not under the Law anymore.

    However, her ministry doesn’t appear to have a male serving at the head of it and so she’s really sidestepped the hierarchy of how God says things work best.

  • Brendan

    Quote from stephen’s posting here on 15 and 18 april respectively:

    “Mr Brendan O’Neill by the way, is at the moment being investigated by the police for his part in another criminal online attack that attempted to draw ‘unwanted paramilitary attentions’ to my family and myself recently…”

    ” At least five, and possibly nine criminal investigations are underway regarding an ongoing campaign of harrasment, intimidation and cyberstalking against my family and myself.. and amongst others involved, Mr Brendan O’Neill is in the thick of it. ”

    Having taken legal advice on this matter, there are a couple of points I need to make:

    1) There is no such offence of “drawing unwanted paramilitary attentions” that could be investigated. Google it.

    2) Despite what Stephen Manning claims, there is no ‘UK Cyber Crimes Unit’, presumably he should be aware of the name of the police authority if he genuinely had been in touch with any such body.

    There is a ‘Metropolitan Police e Crimes Unit, which I have contacted myself on this issue. As internet forums do not constitute ‘legal privelidge’ I am unable to disclose the details of communications other than they do not wish to interview me.

    Mr Manning is potentially committing offences of ‘contempt of court’ , (note his use of the words ‘at the momnet being investigated’)obstruction of a police officer’ and ‘perverting the course of justice’ under UK law.

    If he really believed I was behind any of the malicious posts on that forum, surely he would keep quiet and let the authorites investigate me rather than publically tipping me off about it, and risk prejudicing a police investigation and charges of contempt of court.

    3) Despite contacting three seperate police authorites, no-one wants to talk to me. Any offence as serious as what is being alleged would definitely involve myself being interviewed and even arrested, with out a doubt. I’ve not been arrested, or even questioned about this. Anyone reading the thread on the topix ira forum can judge for themselves as to my views on the subject and the wisdom of posting on such a forum.

    4) There is an offence of malicious communications, it is rare for anyone to be prosecuted under this, presumably six months later I would have been charged for it if the DPP wanted.

    “The Malicious Communications Act 1988 section 1, see Stones 8 – 20830 [and Blackstones 19-41], deals with the sending to another of any article which is indecent or grossly offensive, or which conveys a threat, or which is false, provided there is an intent to cause distress or anxiety to the recipient. The offence covers letters, writing of all descriptions, electronic communications, photographs and other images in a material form, tape recordings, films and video recordings. Poison-pen letters are usually covered.”

    Reading the above postings it seems to me that Manning could be guilty of that too, as well as ‘contempt of court’ , obstruction of a police officer’ and ‘perverting the course of justice’.

    Moderator, as serious and untrue allegations have been made about me on your forum I belive I have a right to adress them here.

  • justpassin'thru

    Grant, if you would read the entire thread, Miriam’s actions have been well-documented by Stephen Manning. Miriam ran a publishing on demand business and defrauded many of her clients. Judgments were entered against her but she refuses to pay the judgments and is making yet another appeal. I’m surprised at your question when the article as well as the comments have clearly documented Miriam’s legal issues.

  • justpassin'thru

    Deborah, I too am perplexed at Mirima’s duplicitous – I have my suspicions as well regarding why she took this “route” – I hope you will follow through on your comment from above: ” know the answer as to why she could pull something like this, but people are not going to like what I have to say. I will leave it for another article” – I look forward to reading your thoughts – please enlighten us. Thanks in advance!

  • justpassin'thru

    Yet another article detailing Miriam Franklin’s *relentless* attacks and vengeful actions against Stephen Manning. http://mickrooney.blogspot.com/2011/03/checkpoint-press-owner-wins-civil.html

    Miriam also started several blogs in her “defense” – personally, I believe she has no defense as she has been proven to be a liar and has been found guilty in a court of law of defrauding clients who contracted with her for publishing services. Kudos to Stephen Manning for his attempts to call Miriam to account – and for the exemplary manner in which he has responded to Miriam’s many attacks both upon him, his family and his character.

    Here is just a sampling of the insanity of Miriam Franklin – a website authored by her in her own defense – of which she has no defense – and many of the comments are most likely made by her in support of herself. Note she still maintains she is not the same Miriam as that of ETPW.

    To Miriam I would say, despite all your protestations, you are a fraud and it would be easier to own up to your duplicitous behavior than to pen numerous blogs attacking the very people that called you to account. Vengeance belongs to God -not you, Miriam.

    Remember those claims that Miriam could no longer “blog” at ETPW because of physical attacks and “serious injuries” to her hands rending her unable to perform musically – yet Miriam is able to start several blogs in her defense.

    You’re fooling no one, Miriam!

    Miriam’s “blog” – http://wondereraround.wordpress.com/2010/03/04/miriam-franklin-fraud/

    Yet another blog started one day later in March 2010 – Miriam is obviously able to use a keyboard. Here she refers to Stephen Manning as a “dirty dog” and again calls his claims against her “fraudulent”. Yet judgment was entered against her in a court of law. Fraudulent – not so!

  • As has been said several times before by a number of decent people, there is little point trying to have an honest discussion with a dishonest individual.

    To put it simply; either Brendan O’Neill is lying, or the Police are lying.

    May I respectfully refer readers to my post above containing a number of links in support of the truth.

    It may interest readers to know that Brendan O’Neill and his twin sister Rosalind Miriam Franklin, were recently put on notice of imminent legal action. One wonders if this latest upsurge of activity on this and other forums by Mr O’Neill has any relation whatsoever to this…?

    Save it for the Judge please Brendan..

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    I am going to cut this conversation short Stephan, not because I am dis-respecting you in any way but because the next person who comments better be Miriam ROSALIND Franklin. She is actually the topic of discussion, and I don’t want this to be about her brother.

    So Brendan, you too have had your say. Be gone now. I want your sister to speak for HERSELF now.

    Ah dude/dudette (lol) I have not been well the last few weeks so I have not written much as you can see. I will get around to it one day. Basically it revolves around what she believed in and it has more to do with than just her visions. There were other things I picked up on that were severely faulty with her ‘doctrine’.

  • I fully respect your position Deborah, and have not at any time felt any disrespect from you at all – indeed, I commend your efforts to remain objective, and to uncover the real truth. Thank you for the clarification all the same..

    I wish you well in getting a fruitful response from Ms Franklin.

    Hi Deborah and Lee,

    I was following with interest each comment until about the last 15 comments. I just don’t have the time right now to read all of them. I was a poster on Miriams’s Endtimes prophetic words blog. I believe I used the name Mary B.
    I just want to add info.: Miriam did converse with me through email beginning in 2008. The email address she used was meadow books publishing. Is Rosalind linked to meadow books publishing? Also I wanted to add regarding Miriam’s attitude toward commenters who didn’t agree with her: she did attack me when I disagreed about women taking leadership roles in the church. I do not find Biblical support for what she said. I don’t believe she addressed me in a Christ like manner (but I didn’t address her in a Christlike manner either). I am now convinced it’s the greater call of Christ to have His attitude of patient love in the face of adversity than to devote so much time to prophesy and judging public ministries even when it’s an apostate ministry. I had to stop blogging for this reason.Things went downhill fast for me. I was spiritually attacked 2 times each in a dream due to the posting of Todd Bentley video’s on her website. It just isn’t a good thing to let your mind fester on dark things( and yes Todd’s ministry was dark and demonic. I agree) . I just don’t see the bennefit of focusing on everything that is wrong with the church. We need to hear good news.

    I don’t know for sure who I believe in this lawsuit. But I do believe it is dangerous to spend so much time reading someone else’s visions, views, prophesies. It’s dangerous to fear that one can’t challenge the mouthpiece of God (her own claims). I also disagree with Miriam’s views on the rapture. I avoid anyone who is so sure they know how it’s all going to end especially when they are claiming to be a God’s mouthpiece. So in con clusion I’ve had my fill of prophesy and doomsday warning. Christians need to stay in the word and fellowship with each other and fight the good fight. Walk in His light. That’s what I learned from all this. The world needs to see that.

    Miriam posted a prophesy about me on her blog. I still don’t know 4 years later if it was from the Lord. i can’t deny it. I can’t refute it. But shouldn’t I know if it was from God? Especially when I’ve known that a word is from the Lord directed just to me. I hope the allegations aren’t true. I will pray for Miriam.

    Yes, Miriam from ETPF is the same Miriam Rosalind Franklin from Meadow books publishing. She too emailed me from this email address back in 2008.

    Re the prophecy about you, I would ignore it and ask Jesus for forgiveness for believing her. It is not from God. Don’t worry I too was caught by her lies because in the very beginning when I came across her blog I fell for one of her prophecies regarding the NAR (LOL @ myself). I have repented for this. When I tried to post a comment on her site saying that I was no longer in agreement with her prophecy my comment was deleted. I have since not been able to post on her site.

    There are a couple of things wrong 1) She is does not believe in the rapture, she is amillennial – believes as the Catholic church does that Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD and that the temple wont be rebuilt again, that Jesus is currently reigning from Heaven with the (raptured Saints from 70 AD) and Christ will return after the Tribulation. She does not distinguish the Church and Israel from one another in their dispensations and this is a horrible horrible error. 2) She has clairvoyance and believes she sees into the future – she says she has a 100% track record yet NONE of her prophecies have come true – therefore she is a FALSE PROPHET.

  • Mary

    Deborah,
    Thanks. I won’t say anymore but the clairvoyance I had wondered about. I didn’t know her theological views. My question is what if a prophey’s timing is later? Did she give a time line for her prophesy about the NAR? I have noticed her prophesy about a nuclear bomb hitting DC hasn’t come to pass yet. I’m in a 50 mile radius so thank the Lord for that.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Mary

    I spent some time (actually quite a while) going through her whole blog looking to see what her eschatology views were – I mostly had to read comments were people asked her about the rapture and then read her replies and from this it was painstakingly clear what she believed.

    False prophets love to not put dates on their prophecies. The fact of the matter is this, just 1 false prophecy makes you a False Prophet. So if she spoke 10 prophecies and 9 came true and 1 was false she is a False Prophet because God did not speak to her. Satan too can predict the future, especially since he is making it happen.

    So how do we know she is false

    1) There are no such things are Prophets in this day and age
    2) All genuine prophets are mentioned in the Bible
    3) A Genuine prophet of God has a 100% track record
    4) All genuine prophets prophecies pointed to Jesus Christ
    5) Jesus Christ came and fulfilled all Prophecies
    6) Everything we need to know is now written in the Bible
    7) The Bible is our Lord Jesus Christ in published form (Jesus is the Word of God)
    8) Jesus then gave us the Holy Spirit who now abides in us and leads us into ALL TRUTH
    9) If you want to know anything, the Holy Spirit will point you to Jesus Christ
    10) If you want to know anything, the Holy Spirit will show you in the Bible because in the Bible is EVERYTHING you need to know

    Now the fruit of her life has been exposed through her wheelings and dealings.

    So first her doctrine is wrong which leads to incorrect ideas that she is a prophet and this shows as a bad fruit in her life through theft.

    Please note the following scripture regarding prophesy and peoples reactions to it.
    Rev 19:10 And I fell down before his feet to worship him. And he saith unto me, See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with thee and with thy brethren that hold the testimony of Jesus: worship God; for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

    We read here that John receives a “prophetic revelation” and falls down to “worship” the giver of this prophesy. He is “corrected” and pointed to the source of Prophecy. I find that people in general always look in “awe” at any body who “appears” to have “superior” knowledge of things that appear to be spiritual especially when it involves knowledge of the future. Some will even “worship” him/her and defend them. For me this is very sad because it displays their lack of “relationship” with God.
    Mary, We are in a relationship with God and He has given you His Spirit and He will lead you into all Truth. We do not need a “medium” to come and tell us what God wants to do in my live. No, we have His Spirit and the Word and That is ALL we need.

    O yes, God can use a fellow believer to come and encourage you with a Scripture that just “speaks” into your situation like a “prophecy”, AMEN ! BUT it will always be Scripture based and will always be confirmed by Scripture.

  • Mary

    Thank You.
    I think I will copy this down as a reminder. I remember making some of the same points to someone else once. But I so easily forget. Satan is slick.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Mary

    No problem. Just thank Jesus you can see the truth, others out there still think she is a prophet (even after all the Publishing scams).

  • Mary

    Thank you Smuggler,
    Those scriptures are very helpful.

    “For me this is very sad because it displays their lack of “relationship” with God”

    Yes that exactly described me. Although I had much discipleship and bible study and a vibrant relationship at one time I had wandered away. So I was sucked in hook line and sinker. I am in a very solid church now. Actually it’s been several years since I had read her blog and was quite surprised to hear of these turn of events. Thank you for the points you made and the scripture.

    Thanks Deborah,
    I am so greatful to the Lord for placing me in a very grounded church. It grieves me also to see so many people defending her- as if a prophet would need a human to defend them. You don’t see that in scripture.

  • Helen

    Just found out, if anyone is interested, Miriam Franklin’s blog has been shut down.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Helen

    Well now..

  • justpassin'thru

    Miriam has apparently deleted her blog. I don’t know when it was deleted but it has been deleted. Interesting turn of events.

    Please read the last few comments above where I explain what exactly it is that Miriam believes that explains why she when off the rails.

    Our Father in heaven knows us so well and He knows what is needed for us to learn obedience. Sometimes we are “stubborn” and then He will allow us to “wander” a bit until we are once again “arrested” and convicted by the Spirit . After our repentance, this will then become a “learning” and a “growing” opportunity as we reflect back on “what happened” and learn from it.
    Praise God for His faithfulness !

    Thanks, Deborah. I feel also that Miriam “went off the rails” (to use your wording) because pride exalts itself and pride comes before a fall. No one dared to challenge Miriam lest they be blocked from her site and then various posters (all of whom were probably Miriam herself) came in to laugh and jeer. While Miriam may have been “gifted”, she spent way too much time glorifying herself for whatever insight she felt she received rather than giving credit to Him. Miriam’s blog was good for a quick study in the popular names of the rising apostates but I feel that Miriam crossed the line into being judgmental rather than discerning. She boasted too often in herself and her “track record”. I believe the gifts are for today (and if anyone wants to “correct” me or debate the matter – I’m not up for any debates or heavy discussions – just please leave me be – I’m not on a website “teaching”) but one has to be humble in the face of the Giver. And when one goes to great lengths, as Miriam did, to deny she also ran a publishing business, something is amiss. The websites she authored herself in her defense and the replies to those posts – supporting her, of course, are still online. Those websites again accuse everyone but herself – she is the little lost sheep being laid upon by everyone else.. not so. One might suppose her blog, endtimesprophetic, is down to support her contention that she was “horribly attacked” and one tale was of her hands being injured so she could not type nor “play” musical instruments. The only “playing” going on was Miriam’s games to hide her guilt! At the same time Miriam was claiming horrible physical attack, she was penning the blogs in her defense. So it seems she is still able to type – and quite well. The baliffs who visitied her to collect on the claims awarded in court did not see evidence of “severe injuries”.

    Sad very very sad, that is all I can say… *sighs*

    Please read this regarding Prophecy (Are Prophets for Today or has Prophecy Ceased?) and then maybe you better will understand where people go wrong in their interpretation of the word ‘prophecy’ in scripture – you might get a pleasant surprise :)

  • simon

    Most uk baliffs by law are also qualified Doctors or Consultants so ‘just passin thru’ must be correct. As well as making collections, detailed medical records are also required in the UK.

    After Her careful analysis of the evidence and facts it is now clear that Deborah’s judgement is much more important than any uk court’s ruling.

    I never cared for miriam’s blog, for that reason alone she is clearly a criminal, it is obvious.

    God bless you folks.

    Praise the lord!

  • Steve

    Am I right in thinking the large hit on blog “End Times Visions and prophetic wo…” (name?) which was full of contributions from others with a long list of people who these related too (christian ministries) was actually run by Mirian Franklin then? Th eintro at the top of that page didnt appear so to me altho the site always promoted her prophecies.???

    Please reply as I have wondered why this blog (which appeared to be moving over to a website before it dissappered) has vanished.

    Thanks for your time.

    Steve.

    I don’t understand what you are trying to say?

  • Byron

    You are absoluty incorrect about Miriam Franklins end times beliefs …The internet has ways of caching pages so even if they are taken down you can still find them..take a look for your self….
