TENTH LETTER TO LLOYD GOODWIN
(Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.) - (And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.) - (And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.)
Actually, I had intended for this to be the last letter but I did write one more to him about four months before he died. After I had this dream, (which was actually a lot more in-depth than what I wrote here) I knew it was from the Lord and that it was pretty much over for him at this point. Up to this time, I had only interpreted tongues, in reality, once and it was only for myself. This was not an ongoing gift of the Spirit in my life. That is why when I had this dream and it was so vivid and realistic, I knew that the Lord had spoken to Lloyd Goodwin through this message and I had to relay it to him. This was right after the convention in May when all the ministers had come together. It was somewhere in this time frame that I sent a letter to Brother Jack Archer (which I did not keep a copy of for some reason) along with copies of Sharon's story and letters that I had written to Goodwin telling him the truth about what was going on. I just told Brother Archer that I felt that the Lord had laid him on my heart and that I was supposed to warn him about what was going on. I don't think it was too much longer after this that he split with Goodwin. I never heard back from him so I don't know if my letter influenced him or not. At least he didn't send it back unopened.

Dear Mr. Goodwin:
This will be the last letter that you get from me.
Friday evening, the Lord gave me a dream about you and I just felt that I should relay it to you.
First, one scripture:
I Peter 5: 2-3 "Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers - not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; Not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock:" 5:B "all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
I dreamed that your church was abusing Christ. All of the ministers of your fellowship (all in my dream were white skinned) were smoking marijuana and getting high together. (This is the exaltation of EGO, the flesh.) I called the authorities to turn you in. You all tried to talk me out of it.
The next scene was inside the church. At first no one recognized me. I just loved the people and they responded to me. The Spirit of the Lord fell in a mighty wave. I was dancing and speaking in tongues. When I came to a stop, I was standing directly in front of you (face to face) and I interpreted the prophecy in tongues.
The words were: "I have warned you, you have refused to repent, you are judged!"
I am just relaying a message from God.
Sincerely in Christ,
