Our investigation into the man known as ‘Jacob’ Prasch began long before 2018 when others picked up on his mishandling of Biblical principles – but we finally publish this updated report today (which has been on this page for over a year,) as a very serious warning to each and every one of us. It is written in love with no malice aforethought – but is an attempt to reach those who have been sucked into this cult. My statements are plain facts which are tough facts.
So here is the first part of the warning. Do NOT blaspheme The Holy Spirit which can be done by deliberately bearing false witness – that is DELIBERATELY lying about those who are in ministry and are infilled and led by the Holy Spirit. These people are GOD’S servants and DELIBERATELY telling lies about them is a very serious crime in God’s eyes.
“OUTSIDE are … everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” (Rev 22:15)
It’s bad enough to spread such slander and gossip – God HATES that too – but to deliberately make up lies and stories about servants of The Lord is a very serious crime indeed. In fact, the man we have been investigating is guilty of all 7 things that God hates as Prasch sheds the innocent blood of those in ministry which he tries to destroy and that includes those who are successful in ways he can never be. Jealousy is a powerful spirit.
“These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” (Proverbs 6:16-19)
And yet, our loving God still gives opportunity after opportunity to repent, to put it right, to apologise but James Aloysius Prasch – known as ‘Jacob’ has resolutely refused to do so, after lying for years about anybody who questions him or stands up to his bullying. If there is no actual sin that he can find, he makes it up. Slanderous personal accusations that have caused several people to end up in a very dark place mentally and spiritually and even in hospital physically because of the stress he puts them under.
However, he is not as clever as the antichrist will be and if you are fooled now – you most certainly will be fooled later because things are worse than even we realised. Much worse.
Having worked with Reachout Trust in the past as well as ministering to those in the cults and teaching churches how to recognise and deal with them in our own ministry, we quickly recognised James ‘Jacob’ Prasch as a personality cult leader when we and others reached out to him to ask him to handle a ministry situation with another leader in a Biblical manner. We had previously considered Prasch a brother who we had worked with many times and who had stayed in our home frequently over 12 years, yet out of the blue, I personally received the threat of war if I ‘came against him’ and that I ‘would be sorry’…
We had an immediate sense of horror that this was not the voice of a Christian brother but of a bully or thug. Soon after, when we saw that other Godly brothers and sisters, who, like us, had not a single slur against their names or ministries, suddenly came under attack not only from him and his ‘ministry’ called Moriel but also from their followers, that we realised that we actually have a personality cult leader in our midst. And a cult leader by definition, leads a cult.
So it was very frustrating to hear him telling the same lie again and again on video and in writing on social media – that some of us ‘support and promote’ a heretic – but it turns out to be true – and ‘prophetic’. He was right. For years we had supported and promoted James ‘Jacob’ Prasch – The Heretic.
To be very honest, I never thought I would say that about him. His lousy character left everything to be desired yes, but heresy? Surely not. Until a few days ago.
I have recently read, listened and watched him writing and speaking blasphemy on different dates over the last 11 years – although he claims that he has actually taught it for 20 years – his message being that we are saved by the occult mythical figure called the metatron. Well, I’ve never seen that word in the English Bible – or in the Hebrew or Greek versions – and that’s because it isn’t in there. So who or what is the metatron or ‘metatrone‘ as he calls it?
Metatron is an angel in Judeo-Islamic and Christian mysticist mythology mentioned in a few brief passages in the Aggadah and in mystical Kabbalistic texts within the Rabbinic literature. The name Metatron is not mentioned in the Torah and how the name originated is a matter of debate. In Islamic tradition, he is also known as Mīṭaṭrūsh (Arabic: ميططروش), the angel of the veil. In folkloristic tradition, he is the highest of the angels and serves as the celestial scribe or “recording angel”.In Jewish apocrypha and early kabbalah, “Metatron” is the name that Enoch received after his transformation into an angel. (Hebrew: מֶטָטְרוֹן Meṭāṭrōn, מְטַטְרוֹן Məṭaṭrōn, מֵיטַטְרוֹן Mēṭaṭrōn, מִיטַטְרוֹן Mīṭaṭrōn) or Mattatron (מַטַּטְרוֹן Maṭṭaṭrōn) Wikipedia
There is no reason to believe that Metatron exists. In fact, some of the legends concerning Metatron are decidedly unbiblical. There is only “one mediator between God and men,” and it is not an angel. It is “the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).
The Bible says that such myths and legends are unprofitable. “Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly” (1 Timothy 4:7; see also Colossians 2:18-19). GotQuestions.org
Saying THAT CREATURE saves us – is blasphemy. There is no other name for it. This is blasphemous heresy.
‘One for Israel’ did not give permission for Prasch to use their footage in his cobbled together video at https://youtu.be/hT48bB4gTrk where he implied that ‘One for Israel’ are in agreement with his claim that the metatron saves us and all his other heretical statements below*. ‘One for Israel’ don’t know who Prasch is and they do NOT believe that the metatron is Jesus Christ Who died for us.
Dr Eitan Bar, their director of media and evangelism says: “On the issue of “the Metatron” – I do not believe in the Metatron nor that he exists. I only see him as a fictional character, an imaginary mythical figure who I only refer to, as a rabbinic myth. The only purpose in referring to this concept is to show Orthodox Jews that the concept of “the son of God” exists in their literature as well, and therefore the concept of Yeshua, the Son of God is not a “pagan non-Jewish” one, as most rabbis today will claim against Christianity.”
They also state on their website that “the New Testament was written long before the book of Zohar and the rest of the sages’ literature. While Metatron does not appear in the Hebrew Scriptures, conveniently, the Jewish sages invented him as a substitute for Jesus, whom they rejected”.
The complete litany of Prasch’s blasphemy is horrifying – along with his claim that we should sing about the blood of the (scape)goat who died for us.
NO we will NOT.
See https://youtu.be/QtcRYjLzLwE (Warning: prepare to be dazzled by the ‘Grateful Dead’ T-shirt!)
Yeshua Ha Maschiach – Jesus The Christ – is The LAMB of God Who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29), again John calls Him The Lamb of God to the others (John 1:36), only The Lamb is found worthy of opening the scroll in Rev 5. In Rev 21:14, The Lamb has 12 apostles, and in Rev 19, He holds the wedding feast. I’m not going to any feast with a goat…
No goat paid the price for my sins – or anybody else’s.
Perhaps he needs to ask a proper theologian or other Bible scholar who can explain the theology behind The Precious Blood of The Lamb, Who takes away the sins of the world?
I believe that The Lord has allowed James ‘Jacob’ Prasch’s heresy to be exposed, as he is being judged by the same measure he has judged others – others who have apologised and repented and corrected themselves if necessary – yet HE, Prasch, has made himself their judge and jury – and executioner – and not forgiven them.
He continues to call them either a heretic or reminds everybody of their error – real or imagined eg David Nathan, Amir Tsafarti, Jan Markell – all bona fide Jews. Do you see a pattern here from somebody who for years claimed he was part Jewish? Only he was lying. Big time. (See the final paragraphs below). Does he think you get more donations that way? He did marry a Romanian Jew, which then allowed him – as her husband – to make Aliyah ie to live in Israel, which is why he has the papers saying that.
Below is a link to just a small sample of what he has said and done and some of the ministries and men who have tried to lovingly deal with him. It makes horrible viewing but Jesus Himself warned us that in these days, MANY would be deceived and MANY would be led astray. My job is not to ‘burn the heretic’ – but to set the prisoners free. Jesus Christ, Son of The Most High God, has redeemed us if we come to Him in humility and contrition. If you have been ensnared in the Moriel cult, there are many of us ready to take your hand and help in any way we can, because most of us know what it’s like to be deceived and then to have our eyes opened – and the anxiety that can follow as we doubt our own mind and wonder who we can trust… so please watch these videos and make up your own mind.
I am issuing a very real warning. To his followers, supporters and promoters. His fans. His defenders. Those who make excuses for him because not to do so exposes their own foolishness in following him. But most of us have been there – so PLEASE – I beg you. Humble yourself before God, repent. He is quick and just to forgive because He is Love – BUT there comes a point where there is no return to The Father, because it is not the flesh, not even the devil, but it is God Himself Who turns a person over to the STRONG delusion, because they do not have a love for The Truth, and would rather revel in unrighteousness, (2 Thess 2:11-12) enjoy having their ears tickled at the scandal and gossip and watching a man ranting and railing at the supposed sins of others. But what is worse than anything is that Prasch is a proven liar of the highest degree, who has been caught in way more than 50 lies. We lost count, but 100 of his un-repented sins are illustrated here https://www.bitchute.com/video/P5ktd4pjuyK8/.
And remember – there is NO excuse for what Prasch has said – even though he will try to explain it away now he’s been outed. He calls himself a teacher – and he has taught these heretical beliefs with great clarity. There is no dubiety that he means what he says and says what he means. And he is very, very wrong. There is NO OTHER Name under Heaven by which we are saved (Acts 4:12).
It may be easiest to READ his claims. In his quarterly newsletter from September 2009 on page 15, near the bottom, he writes In Conclusion… – so, rather than having to trawl through the rest of it, there is a copy below. He is clearly urging us to use this kabbalistic, occult figure when witnessing to a Jew. Can you imagine what he would say about ANYBODY else who said this? In other words, using Holy scripture and the evidence of the Jewish Mashiach to the Jewish people isn’t good enough?
To print and teach this disgusting heresy is unconscionable as somebody else wrote recently. Or that we need the blood of the goat? He would go berserk and call them every type of heretic under the sun if anybody else had said such a thing. He is now being judged by that same measure – there is NO excuse good enough to excuse such blasphemy. He writes:
• Jacob wrestled with the Metatrone, God in a human form.• Joshua fell down before Him upon entering the Promised Land – the Metatrone. • The Metatrone is the middle pillar of the Godhead. • The Metatrone is Jehovah. • The Metatrone is in the Shekinah; the Shekinah is in the Metatrone. Jehovah God, Metatrone, Shekinah, three-in-one, one-in-three. • The Metatrone is the Redeemer; the Metatrone is the only way to God. • The Metatrone is the only one in whose name He will answer our prayers. • The Metatrone is the only one to whom God has committed the future of Israel into His hands. • The Metatrone is the only agent of God’s salvation. • The Metatrone is the only one who has the right to give the way to the tree of life. • The Metatrone is the only one in whom, if you take refuge, you will be saved. • Who is the Metatrone? YeshuaHaMashiach, “Jesus the Messiah”. The New Testament? Yes! Is that what I think? It is what I know. If you don’t want to believe me, believe your own rabbis.
“My dear Jewish friends, if you are reading this, the Metatrone is the Messiah; the Metatrone is God who became a man; the Metatrone is the only one who can give you salvation; the Metatrone is the only one who can bring you to the Jerusalem above that your rabbis teach you about; the Metatrone is the only one, the only way, the only future you have…” from Jacob Prash, Moriel Quarterly Newsletter, September 2009, Page 15 near the bottom – “In Conclusion”…

Listen and Watch him speaking here if you require further proof:
FINANCES: For those who know what this is about, this is a link to their tax return 990 forms based on their USA accounts showing how they spent the generous donations – and it is interesting that since the investigation into their finances began, in the last (and very late) tax return, Prasch paid himself $147,000 and his partner took $90,000 and left their assets at NIL. You’d almost think they were worried that somebody would ask them to put the money back so they got it out asap! HOWEVER in the 9 years of records shown below, between them James (Jacob) Prasch and his partner David Lister took $75,000 short of 1 million dollars despite saying he takes no salary from this ‘non profit’ organisation! BUT, add in the travel, rent and extreme expenses which demand receipts be shown, the sum is well over that.
We’ll come back to the latest figures soon, but in their previous tax return, less than a quarter of the donations they received went to their ‘good causes’ – $126,000 in that tax year. That’s $50,000 LESS than James (Jacob) Prasch and David Lister took themselves in the same year. In fact, Lister the treasurer who is virtually unknown to supporters, took more than the main man – over $475,000 over the last few years – and he is supposed to have a full time job with Yellow Pages and selling Hollywood Memorabilia (unconfirmed) – AND he claims to work between 35 and 40 hours a week for Moriel. Doing what???? Likewise, Prasch claims to have external work and takes nothing from Moriel because he owns 2 (3?) domain names which bring him a good income (seriously!) and we were advised by one of his close friends that he apparently advises private investors about the benefits of investing in charities / 501(c)(3)s. No wonder he wants to keep it private.
See below for another comparison with a much larger ministry. This time with Todd Bentley of Fresh Fire Ministries. Now he IS known as a heretic! Compare: Fresh Fire Ministries:
Moriel Ministries: projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/organizations/980175401 You can search the same site for “Todd Bentley” and “Jacob Prasch” to get an easy to review list of years and ‘salary’ for each.
And the Moriel UK charity ‘accounts’ raise several questions as researchers were shocked at the 2018 ones which were filed (yet again, later than normal since the investigation began) for Moriel Missions and which now give a very different picture compared to what was declared previously. They were audited by a man who has been involved with Moriel for at least 6 years and has organised conferences for him. See here
VIDEOS: This is a link to just a few of the many videos out there. It’s very sorry reading about a man who has fallen far, as The Lord reveals what has been hidden in the darkness. The irony is that if he hadn’t continually lied and accused others of things they weren’t doing, nobody would have looked at their finances. He and Moriel have brought it all down on their own heads.
Here are videos made by a professional counselling organisation who was contacted by just one of the women cruelly bullied by Prasch who became very unwell through it all. The director of the organisation which helps all kinds of people was so appalled by what he saw, he made a warning video. After looking deeper – he made a second one.
And here are some more. We don’t necessarily approve of all videos made about Moriel, but it gives a flavour of what kind of organisation we’re dealing with here. It is embarrassing. Even the muslims mock him.
BEING JEWISH: I discovered shortly after his mother passed away, that James Prasch has lied for decades about being part Jewish. He admits his mother was Roman Catholic but claims that his dad was a non religious Jew who ‘sent him to the Jewish community centre’.
When I was a teenager, I went to a Catholic community centre for the youth club – but that didn’t make me a catholic any more than it made Prasch a Jew! It’s preposterous!
In fact, he was christened James Aloysius Prasch Jr after his father – the middle name being a Roman Catholic saint’s name.
We know from the 1940 census when his dad JAP Snr was 14 years old, he lived at 17 Story Court, Bayonne, Hudson, New Jersey. His siblings (the uncle who became a Freemason and the 3 aunts) were called John, Isabel, Florence and Anna and the parents (Prasch’s paternal grandparents) were George and Anna Prasch. Not very ‘Jewish’ sounding…
We can see his name clearly on the alumni roll from St Mary’s Star of The Sea school in his home town of Bayonne, New Jersey. If you click the link above to go to the page, scroll down the second column to near the end of 1967 – you’ll see him there. (See screen grab above.)
The same name as is shown on his birth certificate.
What confirms the research is why his DAD who was a New Jersey cop known as ‘Red’ has a Roman Catholic name (and a cross above it on the grave stone) and his dad before him, right back… Prasch is not a Jewish name – never has been. In fact, we defy you to try to find any Prasch with a Jewish forename.
But hey, if he can produce 2 pieces of proof and can show us his brit milah certificate signed by the local Rabbi who gives us his email to contact him to confirm (what do you mean it sounds like we don’t trust him?) and if another member of the immediate Prasch family confirms that they are part Jewish – we will all issue a formal apology, I’m sure.
But it won’t happen. According to the records, which we’ve been able to trace back to the 1500s, there is not a drop of Jewish blood in James (Jimmy) Prasch and he has been unable to publicly prove otherwise, hard as he’s tried, waving fake ID (that was an application form in Hebrew), fake family tree (that was a notarised copy of the birth certificate of a man born in 1905 called Werner Adolf Brash. No relation. His family was called Prasch for about 200 years) and fake DNA (see the next paragraph below).
In fact according to both Israeli, American and British Jewish archives, there is no Jew of that name other than one who has married into the family. He has even lied that the name Prasch is derived from ‘Pharisee’ – which is absolute nonsense – it is derived from ‘Brasch’ and is a solid German name going back centuries.
A member of his family also confirmed this to another researcher however apparently he shows some sort of ‘aliyah card’ to personal friends. This proves nothing, as he is married to a Jew which gave him permission to go with her to live in Israel where their children were born.
Fake DNA – He has also shown fake DNA findings too. It’s unbelievable. Literally. But we have the proof that what he showed on a video was a tribal migratory map showing the 3-way split between farmers, hunter gatherers and others. If he really had proof of his DNA from iGenea, he’d be showing one of several other documents which show a complete breakdown of up to 12 people groups, all clearly notated.
So far, he has shown 3 ‘fake’ documents on a video in his bid to have his followers and enablers utterly snared. He knows we all know it’s fake – as long as the poor souls in his cult are believing it, that’s all he’s interested in. After all, they’re the ones that make the donations.
So who’s the liar here? If you are in the Moriel cult, you won’t believe me. So I will try to reach you one more time. Please ask yourself, why would I risk not only my reputation, my marriage, my job, my ministry, my place in the church as a pastor’s wife which allows me to serve those precious brothers and sisters, and most of all, my very soul, (because liars do NOT enter The Kingdom of Heaven according to Rev 22) to make all of this up?
Why would anybody in their right mind do that?
No Christian would do such a thing – therefore Prasch would be released from the scriptural entreaty not to take a ‘brother’ to court and would be well within his rights to sue me for defamation if none of this is true.
I and many hundreds, if not thousands of others say with a resounding shout – DO IT!
Otherwise, please step down from ministry and spend the rest of your days in repentance and putting right the terrible wrongs you have done to the Christians that you have cruelly maligned over the decades. How dare you touch those who belong to The Lord! Who are bought and paid for with The Blood of Jesus.
Not the false teachers, shepherds and prophets that other people had already unveiled before you came along, but the ones you took a dislike to, or those who corrected you or stood up to your bullying and whose ministries you have tried to ruin, even suggesting that they kill themselves, or those who made a mistake and you showed them no mercy to allow them to put it right – whereby, none is being shown to you. Not any more. The Lord has been so gracious, so merciful.
You’ve had years and years to put things right – and the only time you have done it publicly was to try and get back onto a platform when a church was disgusted at the way you treated somebody and told you they wouldn’t have you back unless you publicly apologised – because the doors have closed on you. No decent upstanding congregation will allow you on their platform. There are still some shepherds who protect their flocks. And those who don’t, will share the same end as you. Whatever that is to be.
Because only GOD is the Judge.
Not you, James Aloysius Prasch – despite you giving green √ ticks and red X crosses to people you approve or disapprove of in that dreadful video. You have stood in the place of God.
May He have mercy on your soul.
