Leon du Preez and Goddess Sophia


Prophet Leon du Preez and the Goddess Sophia of Wisdom

As the Christian church falls head over heels into apostasy, self appointed Prophet Leon du Preez and his Encounter Church have a new member: the Goddess Sophia (or “Wisdom”) which Leon du Preez in all his “gnostic wisdom” is willing to impart to you, he says:

Leon du Preez – 23/06/2019

WISDOM is better than RUBIES.

The Sophia anointing makes doubt non-negotiable. Wisdom says “I will speak truth and righteousness.” 

Some churches have too many seeds. Take one good seed and duplicate that pure seed. 

Those who love Sophia will receive wealth as their inheritance. May your mindset change to say “I want wisdom in my life”. Get deliverance from ignorance in your life. Sophia can be imparted. An example of this is seen in Joshua who carried the wisdom of Moses.

Wisdom says “I was right beside Him as a master craftsman. Before anything was created, I was there”.

The one who finds Sophia, she enlightens; those who hate her, love death. Who is Wisdom that was with God from the beginning? It is Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 1:30). If you are saved, there is no reason not to have Sophia wisdom.

“SUNESIS”, which is the third dimension, means a quickness in understanding.

For further studies, read Proverbs 8:1-36, Ephesians 3:1-4


A little History of Sophia Worship

“Sophia” is a transliteration of the Greek noun meaning “wisdom.” In Hebrew, the word for wisdom is “chok-mah.” In the Old Testament (especially Proverbs 3 and 8), and in several apocryphal texts,1 wisdom is personified as a woman. Some understand this personification of wisdom as nothing more than a literary device. Others are convinced that wisdom is intentionally personified as an aspect of divinity, or as a goddess, distinct from God.

Sophia appears to be gaining popularity among feminist theologians and among some secular women interested in goddess worship. One recent example of Sophia’s popularity was an ecumenical Christian conference, “Re-Imagining … God, Community, the Church”, which was held in November 1993 in Minneapolis. The conference was part of The Ecumenical Decade: Churches in Solidarity with Women, a program of the World Council of Churches. Sophia was a recurrent theme throughout the conference.2

However, interest in Sophia is not a new phenomenon. In Gnosticism,3 a heresy in the early Christian church, Sophia is sometimes portrayed as a divine being superior to God, who reprimands God for arrogance. In other Gnostic texts, Sophia is a mischievous spirit who indirectly creates a world so evil that God has to rescue it by sending another emanation named Jesus. According to these texts, Jesus taught that we are rescued from evil and returned to God through knowledge (gnosis).4

More recently, the Shakers have understood Sophia as the fourth person of the Godhead. A Russian Orthodox priest named Sergei Bulgakov has taught that Sophia is the essence of the Trinity, the glue that binds Father, Son and Holy Spirit together.5 

Thus Sophia has been gaining popularity in Christian circles for many years. For a growing number of Christians, Sophia is the feminine symbol of divinity desperately needed to balance the patriarchal emphasis of the Church.

The central question is whether “sophia” is to be understood as a person or as a concept, as a divine entity or as an abstract attribute of God. The answer to this question is the subject of much current debate.

Susan Cady, Marian Ronan and Hal Taussig, authors of Wisdom’s Feast, argue that Sophia is in fact the female goddess of the Bible.6 

For Cady, Sophia is a real biblical person. “She is a co-creator with the Hebrew God, she is a heavenly queen, she is messenger from God, and she is God’s lover.”7 Cady goes on to say that Sophia is “divine, creating, judging, and ruling just as God is.”8 

Catherine Keller of Drew University Theological School insists that Sophia preaches, prophesies, judges and promises security to those who obey her. “Like the spirit,” Keller writes, “this Sophia is at once something humans may seek as their own and something given by God of God’s own nature.”9 

Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza argues that Sophia is the God of Israel expressed in the language and imagery of the goddess.10 For some feminist theologians, including Cady, Sophia is the pre-incarnate Christ; Sophia was a divine entity which took the form of a male human to accommodate patriarchal culture.

For those who understand her as a divine entity, Sophia has become an important link between traditional language for God and feminist spirituality. Proponents of Sophia worship claim that Sophia as a name for God is used to remind us that God has a feminine side and that solely masculine images and names for God are inadequate.


Let’s go back to see what Leon du Preez said above “The one who finds Sophia, she enlightens; those who hate her, love death. Who is Wisdom that was with God from the beginning? It is Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 1:30). If you are saved, there is no reason not to have Sophia wisdom.”

Unfortunately for Leon du Preez (and the spirit that’s giving him his wisdom) the answer he gave it totally incorrect and blasphemous. It was not Wisdom (Sophia) who was with God from the beginning. It was the Word (Jesus Christ) who was with God from the very beginning.

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

So who is Leon du Preez presenting to his church followers… none other than:

The Goddess Sophia – “Feminine Jesus” crucified

Christa - Feminine Jesus
Sophia/Christa (Feminine Christ)

The goddess Sophia in the book “The Shack”

Mary Kassian a member of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and the founder of Girls Gone Wise has a thought provoking critique of The Shack written from a woman’s perspective.  Kassian said:

It is a well-known fact that the Emergent Church has a great affinity for feminine spirituality and hence their bountiful use of the name “Sophia,” the Greek goddess of wisdom, when they refer to Jesus being the Wisdom of God.

“The Shack contains terribly wrong concepts about God. Plain and simple. If you think it doesn’t, then you’re well on your way to accepting the image of the Christa on the cross. In a few years, you’ll be hanging her up in your church. I don’t think I’m overstating the case. In my book I’ve carefully documented the way it happened in mainline churches. The arguments used to justify their feminist Christa are the same ones the Shack uses to justify its feminized version of God. In essence, there’s no difference between the artistic image of a feminized Jesus (a.k.a. “Sophia”) hanging on a cross and the artistic image of a feminized Aunt Jemima Papa god in a book. If the latter doesn’t offend you, then the former really shouldn’t.” (Emphasis added).


Please read more on The Book The Shack to get a greater understanding of the in-roads Sophia has made into the church.

Tom Lessing said : “In Matthew Fox’s book called “A New Reformation!” he writes that we are in fact confronted with two churches: one expressed by the image of the Punitive Father, personified by a rigidly hierarchical church structure, repression of the feminine, . . . and the other expressed by the feminine figure of Wisdom, personified by a Mother/Father God of justice and compassion. It is time for Christians to choose whom it will follow: an angry exclusionary god or the loving open path of wisdom (Emphasis added).”

To break this down into layman’s terms, what Matthew Fox’s saying is: are you for Jesus Christ and His Church ( the angry exclusionary god ) or are you in a church that forms part of the Mother Harlot Roman Catholic Church (the loving open path of wisdom)


Tom Lessing said: “In an article I found on the Internet the Black Madonna and Sophia are said to feature prominently in Islam, as it does in the movie The Shack. Here are a few excerpts from the article.”

The Goddess Remains the Esoteric Heartbeat of Islam

“The secret veiled power of the Divine Feminine is thus actively at work within Islam. Its esoteric forms uncompromisingly address the Divine with the masculine pronouns, but its esoteric qualities are all feminine. The Goddess remains the esoteric heartbeat of Islam. She is the beloved of Sufis, ‘the ultimate image of God the Beloved — the breaker of all images in the shrine of the heart. She is the form leading beyond form, the obstacle to the Way and the Way…’”

 … we have to remember that militant Islam, like muscular Christianity, is only one side of the coin. The reverse is a dazzling mirror-image of Sophia who, in the persons of Fatima and Mary, upholds the Divine Feminine within Islam…

Both Mary and Fatima are reverenced within esoteric Islam, for they are both mothers of the Logos, the Word. . . .

The nature of both the Black Goddess and Sophia are brought out in Islam. The exoteric fulminations about women, so similar to those found in Christianity and Judaism are, of course, negative polarizations of the devouring Goddess, yet this exists side by side with the positive image of the Ka’ba, Islam’s Black Madonna. within Islam, the Divine Male and female principles are typified by the Pen and the Guarded tablet. The Pen is God writing upon the tabula rasa of the World-Soul, which preserves the veiled tradition of Sufism.

The quotation which leads this chapter is the paradoxical foundation of Islam’s veiling of the Divine Feminine. Ibn Arabi’s exposition of this paradox may help us to understand it better. ‘The Absolute manifested in the form of woman is an active agent because of exercising complete control over man’s feminine principle, his soul. This causes man to become submissive and devoted to the Absolute as manifested in a woman. The Absolute is also passively receptive because, in as much as it appears in the form of a woman, it is under man’s control and subject to his orders. Hence to contemplate the Absolute in woman is to see both aspects simultaneously, and such vision is more perfect than seeing it in all the forms in which it manifests itself. That is why woman is creative, not created. For both qualities, active and passive, belong to the Essence of the Creator, and both are manifested in woman.

Sophia is herself the ‘interpreter of ardent desires.’ The mystical vision of Ibn Arabi portrays the longing of all for Sophia: The aspirations and desires of all seekers are attached to her, yet she is essentially unknown to them; hence they all love her, yet none blames another for loving her. Similarly, every individual soul and the adherents of every religion seek salvation, but since they do not know it, they are also ignorant of the way that lead to it, though everyone believes he is on the right way. All strife between people of different religions and sects is about the way that leads to salvation, not about salvation itself.

 But Sophia is also the reconciler of differences, for her love belongs to everyone: ‘She manifests herself everywhere, like the sun; every person who holds her deems that she is with him in her essence, so that envy and jealousy are removed from their hearts.’

Caitln Matthews, Sophia: Goddess of Wisdom,
The Aquarian Press, 1992, p. 179-90

Most Christians attending Leon du Preez Encounter Church seem to be blissfully unaware that they are opening themselves to pure idolatry and demonic possession as he lays hands on this church goers to impart this or that anointing. Leon du Preez is not the first to depict the God of the Bible in such a hideous idolatrous way. Kenneth Copeland, one of Rome’s latest lackeys, said the following:

“Adam was made in the image of God. He was as much female as he was male. He was exactly like God. Then God separated him and removed the female part. Woman means ‘man with the womb.’ Eve had as much authority as Adam did as long as they stayed together.”

Kenneth Copeland (Sensitivity of Heart, KCP Publications, 1984, p. 23).

Androgyny is not something new in religion. It appears in just about every conceivable religion. In the Encyclopaedia of Love in World Religions, we read the following:

Androgynous myths can be seen in ac-counts of creation, as well as in the diverse spiritualities and religious figures embraced by the world’s religious traditions. Myths of creation often invoke powerful androgynous imagery that reflects an understanding of primordial union. Rashi and Abraham ibn Ezra, two renowned medieval Jewish commentators, interpreted the creation of Adam as told in the book of Genesis as an androgynous myth, because God originally created man and woman as one. When God created woman, he effectively separated the female side from the androgyne Adam. This understanding of creation as originally undifferentiated also finds its way into Christian esoteric speculation.

The image of the splitting androgyne is especially prevalent in Hinduism. In the Vedic period, the figure of Dvaya-Prithvi or “Sky-Earth” is another primordial androgyne who subdivides into masculine, feminine, and neuter parts. In the Upanishads, the figure of Purusa subdivides into male and female parts to begin the process of creation. In the Puranas, a later series of Hindu mythological texts, Prajapati divides into male and female parts, which then incestuously copulate.

Encyclopaedia of Love in World Religions, Volume 2 p. 54

What should we make of this in the light of Leon du Preez depiction of God as simultaneously male and female? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that he deliberately wants to unite all his followers under one banner called UniversalismWith a single swoosh of Leon du Preez’s prophetic pen (which you can buy his handwritten notes for R1000 a pop) he seems to have managed to throw Paul’s and John’s Holy Spirit inspired words in 2 Corinthians and Revelation 18 out of one of the Encounter Church’s broken windows.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Revelation 18:4).

Leon du Preez ‘secret entity’

Goddess Sophia
Sophia is the central pivot of creation and represents the feminine aspect in all things. 
She is Wisdom Incarnate, the Goddess of all those who are wise.

Leon du Preez – 23/06/2019

“SOPHIA” is the type of wisdom to gain insight into spiritual reality. Sophia cries out and has a voice (refer to Proverbs 8:1-6). First, Solomon was speaking about wisdom, then wisdom possessed him as a secret entity and spoke directly.” [Emphasis added]


King Solomon and Holy Sophia

Sophia (pronounced sew-fee’ah) in Greek, Hohkma in Hebrew, Sapientia in Latin, Celtic goddess-figure Sheela-na-gigs – all mean wisdom. The Judeo-Christian God’s female soul, source of his true power is Sophia. As Goddess of wisdom and fate, her faces are many: Black Goddess, Divine Feminine, Mother of God The Gnostic Christians, Sophia was the Mother of Creation; her consort and assistant was Jehovah. Her sacred shrine, Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, is one of the seven wonders of the world. Her symbol, the dove, represents spirit; she is crowned by stars, a Middle Eastern icon, to indicate her absolute divinity.

Sophia is found throughout the wisdom books of the Bible. There are references to Her in the book of Proverbs, and in the apocryphal books of Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon (accepted by Catholics and Orthodox, found in the Greek Septuagint of the early Church).

She is usually associated with wise King Solomon. 1 Kings 4:29-31 tells us that God gave wisdom to Solomon, and that he became wiser than all the kings of the East and all the wise people of Egypt.

“Wisdom 8:2, 16, 18” tells us that Solomon was seen as married to Sophia. (apocryphal texts)

The Song of Songs – known as Song of Solomon or Canticle of Canticles – speaks of Solomon’s marriage to Holy Sophia.

Wisdom 9:8-11″ tells us that Sophia instructed Solomon in building the Temple! (apocryphal texts)

The Jews revered Sophia. King Solomon even put Her right in the Temple, in the form of the Goddess Asherah.

[DTW note: Asherah, or Ashtoreth, was the name of the chief female deity worshiped in ancient Syria, Phoenicia, and Canaan. The Phoenicians called her Astarte, the Assyrians worshiped her as Ishtar, and the Philistines had a temple of Asherah (1 Samuel 31:10). Because of Israel’s incomplete conquest of the land of Canaan, Asherah-worship survived and plagued Israel, starting as soon as Joshua was dead (Judges 2:13).]

After the reforms of King Josiah (2 Kings 23:1-7), there was a threat that the veneration of Sophia would come to a halt – there was even more of a threat when patriarchal Christianity took over the world.

[DTW note: Gideon too led a crusade against Asherah-worship (Judges 6:25-30) so did King Asa (1 Kings 15:13)]

Due to her continuing presence in the world and her “so called” presence in the Bible, veneration of Sophia continued in the Eastern tradition with the construction of the Hagia Sophia and the Russian Catholic liturgical service to Sophia combined with the assumption of Mary on May 15.

The Russian Orthodox Church has also a school of “Sophiology” to explore the theology of Sophia without contradicting the Russian Orthodox theology.

Yet the Eastern Christians are not the only Christians to venerate Sophia.

Sophia was very likely venerated by early Followers of the Way, and her veneration has survived in the West today in the form of Gnosticism.

Gnostics see her as one of the aeons, one of the quasi-deities who live in the ethereal realm known as the pleroma.

Gnostics believe that she gave birth to or brought about the creation of a negative aeon, who later came to be called an archon, called the Demiurge, creator and ruler of this world.

Gnostics see the Demiurge as the God of the Old Testament, with his strict rules and chains that bind the people of the Earth. Gnostics believe that Sophia and the Father God (not the Demiurge) sent Yeshua to right this wrong. In Gnostic tradition, Sophia plays a very active role in our world.

[DTW Note: The name “Yeshua” is in fact also mentioned in the Kabbalah and is hailed as the “The Christ”]

The Mystery School sees many similarities between Sophia and the two Christian Goddesses, Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene. Perhaps one or both of them were incarnations of Sophia.

Generally we see Mother Mary as the incarnation of Shekinah, and Mary Magdalene as the incarnation of Sophia. [Emphasis added]


In true Sophia-like contrast to God’s two-edged sword:

Leon du Preez imparts the ‘Sophia entity’ to his church:

Leon du Preez – 23/06/2019

Ps Leon du Preez calls all his eGroup leaders forward for the laying on of hands, to receive and be empowered by the Sophia anointing. [Emphasis added]


Biblical explanation of God’s Wisdom

No mention of the name Sophia in the bible
No mention of the name Sophia in the bible.

Sophia-worshippers gather most of their religious ideas from the initial nine chapters of Proverbs. The focal point of their contention says that towards the end of the OT, in the book of Proverbs, the feminine noun for “wisdom” that being (chokmah in Hebrew) was made to be personified. For example, personification is when you take an attribute of a person’s character or nature and apply it to inanimate objects or a an actual figure itself, be it human, an entity, or divine.

It is very clear that no reader of the Word of God can say that personification does not occur. But rather the discerning reader will study the context of said chapters using proven bible study methods to come to a sound biblical conclusion. In this case we have Proverbs 8:22-31 that is so often misquoted to support the worshippers of Sophia.

Here, “wisdom” declares her supremacy in the gifts she is able to bestow from the creation of the world. History tells us that many of the earliest cultures used the personification of a deity so the divine being could praise itself. In other words, “Wisdom” here is praising itself by making claims that only belong to God. God and no one else is the source of all True Wisdom (Romans 11:33; James 1:5, 1:17-18, 3:13-17), and, therefore, any reference to “Wisdom” in the Word of God that includes DIVINE LANGUAGE should be attributed to God’s character and nature only.

The Jews believed in the One and Only Living God (Deuteronomy 4:35-36, 6:4; Isaiah 42:8, 44:6-8, 45:5-6; Jeremiah 10:10-11). So to even suggest that “Wisdom” was personified into a seperate god or goddess long side God Himself was to blaspheme the name of God, which was punishable by death in the Old Testament. The Jews would have dismissed and thrown out the writing of Proverbs as extra biblical if it were true that the “Wisdom” in Proverbs 8:22-31 was in fact a goddess named Sophia.

This entire controversy leads us to a few simple conclusions:

1) The bible must be read for the type of literature it is.

2) A proper understanding of feminine personification in relation to these passages needs to stay within the framework of the whole counsel of God.

3) There is one God who eternally exists in three persons – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:18Eph. 4:4-71 Peter 1:2)

4) When we stay within the framework of biblical doctrine, we find that it excludes any mention of a goddess or secondary deity.

5) Finally and most importantly one must acknowledge that poetry can contain elements that are clearly not to be taken literally.

For example “Cain really did kill Abel, but then God said that “…the voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10). Literally, the blood did not cry from the ground, but the rhetorical means used here, communicates another form of personification found in Scripture to emphasize the killing.”

As Proverbs 8:22-31 describes, poetry and personification do not invalidate Scripture. Instead, they are essential to demonstrate words, phrases, feelings, and meanings that cannot be understood easily any other way or that continue from a previous argument. In the latter case, God created the heavens by His Wisdom found in Proverbs 3:19, and  Proverbs 8:22-31 exists to continue that figurative speech (personification).

The goddess-worship of Sophia and other similar deities shows the rapid pace of apostasy in the church. What may be socially or politically acceptable in the form of worship, is however, diametrically opposed to the Bible.

One must learn to recognize the difference between literal truth and metaphors in the Bible through constant practice (2 Timothy 2:15). Both areas of speech are the infallible, inerrant, and the inspired Word of God, but demand patients and Holy Spirit discernment for interpretation. Otherwise, one will be left to replay the words of the prophet Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 10:10-11 “10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. 11 Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.

A warning to Leon du Preez and Encounter Church:

Exodus 20:3-5 “3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”


  • 1 Including Baruch, Sirach and Ecclesiasticus
  • 2 There were 2,200 attendees at the conference, including 83 men. The denominations with the largest number of attendees were the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), United Methodist Lutheran/ELCA, Roman Catholic, and United Church of Christ.
  • 3 Gnosticism was a dualistic heresy which taught that matter was evil and that spirit was good. As a result, the humanity of Jesus was denied and his divinity emphasized.

    First, I would like to say “Hi” and ask you to read the law of man…

    “In South African law, the wrong of defamation is committed whenever anyone publishes a defamatory statement about another living person. … It could be a spoken or written allegation or even a non-verbal statement like an image that’s communicated to at least one person apart from the plaintiff.”

    Second, read the law of God.
    Just a bit for you below.

    NVI “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

    TLB “Don’t criticize, and then you won’t be criticized. 2 For others will treat you as you treat them. 3 And why worry about a speck in the eye of a brother when you have a board in your own?

    KJV 1Judge not, that ye be not judged.
    2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
    3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    Reading is fun so here is a bit of dictionary below.
    Sophia (Koinē Greek: σοφία sophía “wisdom”) is a central idea in Hellenistic philosophy and religion, Platonism, Gnosticism, and Christian theology. … References to Sophia in Koine Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible translate to the Hebrew term Chokhmah.

    And I agree with the following.

    “This entire controversy leads us to a few simple conclusions:
    1) The bible must be read for the type of literature it is.
    2) A proper understanding of feminine personification in relation to these passages needs to stay within the framework of the whole counsel of God.
    3) There is one God who eternally exists in three persons – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:18; Eph. 4:4-7; 1 Peter 1:2)

    5) Finally and most importantly one must acknowledge that poetry can contain elements that are clearly not to be taken literally.”

    Just one problem you wrote after that, as below,

    “For example “Cain really did kill Abel, but then God said that “…the voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10). Literally, the blood did not cry from the ground, but the rhetorical means used here, communicates another form of personification found in Scripture to emphasize the killing.”

    Are you classifying God as an entity or are you boxing God to a billboard and stating He is nothing compared to human ways and he needs to be judged and not you.

    a Scientific explanation of vibration”Vibration, periodic back-and-forth motion of the particles of an elastic body or medium, commonly resulting when almost any physical system is displaced from its equilibrium condition and allowed to respond to the forces that tend to restore equilibrium.”
    “Different organs of the human body produce different resonance frequencies. The heart resonance frequency is ~ 1 hz. The brain has a resonance frequency of ~ 10 hz, blood circulation about 0.05 to 0.3 hz”

    I hope the above helps in understanding the literature part of The Word.

    Fun Reading, but please take this down before you find this somewhere funny, like in court.

    I so badly want to dissect your article but there is so little time to do this and I imagine this will be deleted soon.

    If you ever need an ethical hacker or network security specialist please mail.

    I will pray for you,
    God bless you.

  2. Dear Dean Vosloo

    :laugh: Your comment is so cute, you try so hard to sound biblically literate, especially about frequencies etc. Tom and I had a discussion about this the other day about vibrations and frequencies and how shamanistic it was.

    Thank you for the threat (I’m used to Satan’s attacks), and no I will not take this down. Nowhere have I posted defamatory statements about Leon, I’ve exposed this false teachings. End of story.

    Not sure if you’ve read these verses, maybe you would like to:

    1 Corinthians 6:1-8 1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. 7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? 8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

  3. Hi Dean Vosloo.

    As for judgment the following.

    But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man (not even in court). (1 Corinthians 2:15)

    That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; (Ephesians 4:14)

    Which one would you like to be – a little spoiled brat who loves to be deceived by wolves in sheep’s clothing or a mature spiritual man who rightly divides the word and judges all things righteously? Please choose the right one because it may have some bearing on where you are going to spend the rest of eternity.

  4. Thanks Thankful4Grace

    And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. (Matthew 23:12-13)

  5. Robbie says:

    Dean Vosloo.

    Theft is against the law, false witnessing and lying is against the law, manipulating the innocent (and ignorant) for financial gain is against the law….

    Someone going to tell Leon du Preez?

  6. Shannon says:

    the way you attack Leon du Preez is not right! The spirit behind yr actions is mean, cruel and evil

  7. Shannon. Would you mind proving to us from Scripture that our discernment of Leon du Preez’s sermons is mean, cruel and evil?

  8. Shannon, we wait patiently… :wait:

  9. Elie Makhlouf says:

    Deborah, may Christ bless you and proclaim his double-edged sword in your ministry. There are many charlatans in this world which claim they are prophets and see visions and speak for God. Those who are truly called will expose with a sound mind and sound reasoning their nefarious ways. I read in Jeremiah 23

    16 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord.

    17 They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.

    Every one of these false prophets who takes glory unto themselves will have a lot to answer for before Jesus’ throne and all their work will burn away, fortunately.

    God said in Isaiah 48
    “…I will not give my glory unto another.”

    Jesus said:
    John 5:43
    I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

    Tragic that those who do not study diligently may perish for lack of knowledge. But of course, that is what true believers are called to do, not to take glory unto themselves, but to elevate the only one worthy of Glory, our King, Like it says in Timothy “Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords” The Lord Jesus, and anyone who is caught unaware or unsincere will be exposed and sadly perish.

    Many Deborah sadly perish simply for a lack of knowledge, it seems the coagulation of followers to men like Leon is not uncommon, for many who are not diligent will follow any person ignorantly and without scrutiny.

    Any person that kneels before Jesus can stand against any man who contradicts him.

    Blessings to you sister from above, and protection in the name of Jesus Christ be upon you and your family. Keep exposing!

    Isaiah 9:5
    For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

  10. Something for you to read.


    Sophia is the ecumenical “Mary” (demon) who wishes all religions to unite. She will eventually be the woman who rides the beast (Antichrist).

    So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Revelation 17:3-5).

  11. Nay says:

    As someone who has attended this church once and have family actively serving this church, I fully agree with this article. In my opinion this church’s focus is money. There have been people stating “testimonies” about how poor they were and since joining the church can afford a R30 000 outfit. This is ridiculous. Since when do we go to church to announce how much money we have and how expensive our items we own are. All hey promote is money. Since when do we go to church to become rich? We go to church to praise and worship God and to hear his message not about how rich people has become since joining the church. Every person who I have spoken to who belongs to ECC always praises Leon Du Preez as if he is God himself, he is very much being put on a pedestal. Very rarely is there mention of how amazing God is, it’s always how amazing Leon is. These people are idolizing him. Sounds more like a colt than a church.

  12. Dear Nay. Thank you for your comment. Indeed, Leon du Preez’s church is a pagan cult that has absolutely nothing to do with the pure and unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. . . Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. (Jude 1:3-4; 1:11-13)

    Leon du Preez and his wife are playing with fire (the fires of hell) and need to repent of their evil because they are leading many astray and right into hell.

  14. Karl says:

    Hi All…it is really frustrating when Christian’s judge each other…has anybody sat down with Leon and discussed matters with him…”do not judge lest he be judged”…yes whether right or wrong…ask him to appear before the brethren and true followers of Christ Jesus…yet who are the true followers of Christ…the devil has infiltrated so much of the common “Christian” that it has become almost impossible to discern the true followers of Christ…I personally do not belong to any denomination as it has become a hit and miss…as everyone is judging everyone else…and that is Christian’s judging each other..why?? GOD Our FATHER Is the only Judge…so why Judge…when you Judge you make yourself higher than God…rather have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ who will direct you in the Way you should go and Trust that Way…there is only ONE WAY to the Father…and that’s Jesus Christ…any other way is false…WE are the Temples of God…no denomination can lead us to God except Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit…there is no other Way…Our Lord knew that in the end times His people will be subjected to this confusion of doctrine..yet if you read the Word of God in all versions there is only One character of Jesus that is portrayed…LOVE…even Our Lord Jesus has broken it right down for us..there is only three aspects…Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest of these is Love…try to get that right…Love God with ALL your body mind and soul and Love your neighbour as yourself…get that right and the Kingdom of God belongs to you…nothing else matters…Try it…NO Prosperity Gospel, or Healing Gospel, or any other Gospel will get you to Our Father…JESUS CHRIST left us an example..follow His example and all will be well with your soul…No arguments, discrepancies, conspiracies, or the like matter…Only Jesus Christ and His example to us…end of story.

  15. Karl, you have a completely wrong impression of what it means to judge. We are commanded to judge ALL THINGS.

    But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. (1 Co 2:15)

  16. Tania says:

    I have been keeping an eye on Leon on Facebook for quite some time and I have always received an uneasy feeling about him. I never could listen to his preaching right to the end but have listened enough to know enough.

    What bothers me the most is the followers that Idolize him. They continuously thank and adore this ‘Father Leon”. Just go have a look at all the comments. They only praise him and not once does he correct them and tell them to focus thanks and praise on Jesus. Matthew 23:9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.
    Secondly it seems nothing comes cheap with Leon. The prices on his website are ridiculous. If they demand those amounts for me to receive the gospel of Jesus, then it clearly shows you their interest.
    The 1st lesson on dream interpretation that was for free on Facebook. I learned absolutely nothing from it. There was nothing I could take home from that. Another money making scheme?
    Leon is a follower of Bennie Hinn, Joyce Meyer, etc. Shall we start how false these prosperity creatures are?
    I pray that Leon returns to the relationship he had with Jesus long ago.

  17. Dear Tania

    I am glad to hear you felt uneasy, that was the Holy Spirit warning you.

    Stay away from the occult, like dream interpretation. Leon teachings nothing but the occult.

    Unfortunately Leon never had a relationship with Jesus Christ the Son of God. I do however pray he gets saved and repents of his wickedness.

  18. Mark says:

    Ephesians 5:

    Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

    2 Timothy 4:3-4

    For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

    Matthew 7:15 

    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

    2 Peter 2:1

    But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.

    2 John 1:7

    For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.

    2 Peter 2:3 

    And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.


    Maybe it would be helpful to step back first and get the bigger picture of the New Testament response to those who live and teach in ways that lead others into error and ruin, and then zero in on 1 Corinthians 4:5 for some guidelines for how we should speak and write about such people.

    Beware the Wolves

    So let’s begin with Jesus. Matthew 7:15: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” And the word beware means all of us should be alert, but especially shepherds, to identify not just false teaching, but false teachers, whose ways are subtle. They’re clothing themselves with lamb’s wool while they’re wolves.

    And Paul used the same Greek word for beware in Acts 20:28–29 when he said, “Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. . . . I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the.”

    “In order to protect the flock, we should expose false teachers and minimize the spread of the gangrene.”

    Jesus used the same word again in Matthew 16:6, but he got more specific: “Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” Paul had the same kind of group in mind and the same kind of error in mind in Philippians 3:2 and 3:18: “Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh.” And then verse 18: “For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ.” Then in Romans 16:17, he warned, “Watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.”

    Avoid, Rebuke, Call Out

    To avoid them, you have to know who they are. You can’t avoid somebody if you don’t know who they are. This idea of identifying and avoiding shows up in 1 Corinthians 5:112 Thessalonians 3:6142 Timothy 3:52 John 10. In other words, Christians, and shepherds in particular, should be discerning and alert to behavior and teaching that dishonors Christ and destroys people — and not treat it in a casual or harmless way.

    And then in 1 Timothy 5:19–20, Paul went beyond just “avoid them” to “rebuke them publicly.” So, speaking of elders who persist in error, he said, “Do not admit a charge against an elder except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. As for those who persist in sin” — and that can be sin of false doctrine or sin of evil behavior, anyone who does not accept correction — “rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear..”

    And then Paul went on and actually named destructive false teachers:

    • “Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me” (2 Timothy 4:10).
    • “You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes” (2 Timothy 1:15).
    • “By rejecting this [faith and a good conscience], some have made shipwreck of their faith, among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander” (1 Timothy 1:19–20).
    • “Their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus” (2 Timothy 2:17).

    Paul names at least six false teachers that the church should watch out for.

    So, I infer from Jesus and Paul and Luke and John that false teaching and destructive behavior are present dangers in this fallen world for the church. And all of us — especially shepherds, pastors — should be alert and discerning to identify and, in appropriate ways, expose. In order to protect the flock, we should expose them and minimize the spread of the gangrene (as Paul calls it).

    How can you serve the God Almighty and other gods?

  21. Yvette Taljaard

    Well Aaron, the brother of Moses, seemed to have had no qualms to worship other gods in the Name of God.

    And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.(Exo 32:1-5)

    Fortunately for him, he repented of his evil.

  22. Glenda D Teele says:

    CHRIST is the second Deity of the Triune Godhead and the God-Man/God Incarnate…He is eternal, not a created being as Sophia clearly is…She is God’s Cohort and the Mother of the Universe, just as God/Yhwh/Yeshua is the Father…There is ancient Scripture where CHRIST states this Himself…Just like all things of God, Satan has succeeded in once again altering, distorting, and perverting God’s Word and sound doctrine…I have lived a very supernatural surreal life on this journey, and have literally been taken up in the Spirit while alive and awake, and was given so much information and knowledge in an instant and just a moment in time, I’m literally still sorting things out after almost a decade…Satan removed very important Books like Enoch and others to mislead, confuse, and deceive God’s Children, Remnant, Chosen, Elect, and Saints…The 1611 King James originally had 80 Books, not just 66…That’s not counting the Essenes writings, etc…However, if a person seeks diligently and discerns vigilantly they will find the true supernaturally inspired authoritative Word of God…

  23. Hi Glenda D Teele

    You randomly refer to “ancient scriptures” as your source to prove that God has a cohort known as the “Mother of the Universe.” There is nothing random about God’s Word consisting of 66 books. In fact, it declares without any hesitance or doubt that “All Scripture (Genesis to Revelation = 66 books) is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Consulting ancient books and regarding them to be on the same level as God’s Word (Psalm 119:89), or going on weird spiritual trips are much worse than unrighteousness. It is idolatry.

    Your surreal (strange and weird) and supernatural experience in the spirit has supposedly taken you on a journey supplying you with information and knowledge in an instant, and yet you are still sorting things out after more than a decade? Really? Don’t you know that you can know in an instant that God’s Word (66 books) never once suggests that God has a cohort known as “Mother of the Universe.” The only thing nearest to “Mother of the Universe” is the “Queen of heaven” in Jeremiah 7:17-18 whose counterpart you can find in Revelation 17:5, “Mother of harlots.”

    Your spiritual vision did not bring you into the presence of God’s cohort, as you believe, but a Hindu demon called the Goddess Adi Parashakti who is also considered to be both the truly supreme spirit without form (Param Atman) and Saguna with form. In her Saguna form, she is described as the Mother of the Universe and is residing in Sarvaloka Manidweepa above all of the other realms.

    I am fearful that you do not know the Christ of the Bible (66 books) and need to repent of your dastardly waywardness and evil before it is too late. Do not procrastinate (2 Corinthians 6:2). And please, stay away from the likes of Leon du Preez. He is a self-appointed false prophet.
