Note from Jonathan: At the moment I don’t believe it is possible for my family to come here with the work my wife has and the children’s school. Since I just got here I am trying to see how the whole visitation is.  I havent even seen the case manager yet and so much here is so disorganized.  So I appreciate the suggestion and maybe in time that can happen, I will advise when and if that can happen in the future, and thank all who suggest such things, May God bless them.

Bishop Mark Grenon’s Update and Newsletter


Update from the Grenons:

Jordan: Jordan is in Petersburg, Virginia in transit. He is NOT allowed to call or write e-mails at that facility because he is in transit so we haven’t heard from him in more than a week! Although every place Joe and I were in transit as well as Jonathan we were allowed to make calls and write. Also where Jordan just came from in Tallahassee and Atlanta he was allowed to write and call. Don’t know what is going on there but pray we hear from him soon and that the Lord keeps him safe and he is being a testimony for the Lord there.

Jonathan: Jon is in Yazoo, Mississippi and says he is enjoying the ability to go outside! It has been almost 4 years he was locked in the FDC Miami detention center. During the Pandemic lock down he experienced as did Jordan 23 hour lock down. What an abuse especially because the Pandemic was the biggest scam created against the world in this century! It was a “Crime against Humanity” and there will be a day of reckoning for those who perpetrated this crime. All those people that died unnecessary will rise up in judgment against them. I talked to Jon in an e-mail today and he says he had a group of men he was giving his testimony to the other day. Pray the Lord guides him there to lead other men to Him. The Lord has used Jon tremendously since he has been UNLAWFULLY accused and imprisoned these past years. He told me that he needs to buy clothes so if anyone can help with that please do. Jon and Jordan still have 7 years if the appeal doesn’t work for the contempt charges that they received 91 months! One of Trump’s associates last week was sentenced for “Contempt of Congress” only 4 months in a camp here in Miami! You can see how much they are abusing Jon and Jordan.

Joe and I: We are waiting for a date to go to a Half Way house. Pray we go together if it is the Lord’s will. That would be good. I want to do some speaking in Churches and interviews and focus on the real truth and that is what the Lord Jesus has done and what He is doing and what He will do in the future! I also want to volunteer in Rescue missions here in the Miami area. Pray for that. Joe will try to find a job in this area also to bring his family here. Pray that to happen. I won’t be working but writing and ministering.

God does things VERY differently than man!

It’s been said that whatever the world does or believes do the exact opposite and it’s usually what God wants done. For example: The world says fight your enemies, Jesus says,” love your enemies” them. The world says, if someone hits you, hit them back while Jesus says, “Turn the other cheek”. The Roman soldiers could make any Israeli to carry ONLY one mile anything they had, it was a Roman law. Jesus told His disciples to carry it two miles! “Go the extra mile”. The world says you can forgive someone one or two times then NO MORE! Jesus says, forgive those that wrong you 70 times 7! You see God doesn’t think or act like us. He is merciful, longsuffering, patience and forgiving! Totally different than the world!

In Revelation 22:16 the Bible says, “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things unto the churches. I am the root of David, and the BRIGHT and MORNING STAR”. emphasis mine

Here is another example that Jesus is the exact opposite of the world. The “bright and morning star” is Venus. Out of all the planets in our solar system, Venus is the only one that rotates the opposite way of the earth! The world turns one way, Venus turns another. Just like the Lord. What a beautiful illustration of the direction the world goes does and the direction God goes which is totally in the other direction!

Man starts his day in the morning and night comes later. So the day moves light to dark. God is again opposite! In Genesis, 1:3 the Bible states, “And God called the light Day, and the evening he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day”. The Lord starts the day at night and the morning comes after. With God the day moves from darkness to light. The children of this world live from light to darkness but the children of God live from night to day. They are born again in the darkness and move to the day.

In Colossians 1: 12-13, the Bible says,” Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in LIGHT. emphasis mine Who hath delivered us from the darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear son”. From Darkness to LIGHT!!

If you belong to God, then that is the order of your life. You are to go from darkness to light, from weakness to strength, from despair to hope, from guilt to innocence, from tears to joy, and from death to LIFE!!!!! “And ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of LIGHT”, Ephesians 5:8 Your entire life should always be moving away from the darkness to the LIGHT then every night in your life will lead to the dawn! “Weeping may endure for the night, but JOY cometh in the MORNING”, Psalms 30:5b. In I Peter 2:9, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called out of of DARKNESS in his marvelous LIGHT” emphasis mine What darkness is in your life, the darkness of fear, of sin, of problems of gloom? Today, turn way from it and to the Light of day!

That DARK time of three days while Jesus was in the tomb exploded into LIGHT when He conquered death, Hell and the grave for us so that we can walk in His LIGHT in this Life and FOREVER! Focus on that ETERNAL VICTORY!

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great LIGHT: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the LIGHT shined”, Isaiah 9:2 with Matthew 4:16.

Lord bless,



People ask me how can they help. First of all, we want people to pray for us. But make sure God hears your prayers and that ONLY happens when you are be doing His Will! “Now we know that God heareth NOT sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and DOETH his will, him he heareth”, John 9:31 “Doing His will” is believing on His Son!

John 6:40, “And this is the WILL of him that sent me, That every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have EVERLASTING LIFE: and I will raise him up at the last day”.

That is a commandment of the Lord! In I John 3:23, the Bible says, And this is his COMMANDMENT, that we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us COMMANDMENT”, emphasis mine

So make sure your prayers are heard by believing on the Lord Jesus personally! That is what is most important to us that you believe on the Lord and after TRULY BELIEVING you pray for us! Remember what Matthew 7:21-23 says about those that He doesn’t know preaching, praying and doing things in HIS NAME and He doesn’t even know them and tells them to depart from Him! That should literally SCARE THE HELL out of anyone that says they are to make sure they are TRULY Born Again!

” And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others SAVE with fear: hating even the garment spotted by the flesh”. That was written by Jesus’ brother that wasn’t a believer until after He rose from the dead! See John 3 for the necessity of being BORN AGAIN to “see the Kingdom of Heaven”.

Remember the Scripture that says in James 2:19, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well,the devils believe and tremble”. Are the devils have eternal life with Him in Heaven? Does God her them? Many “believe that God “knows” them but in reality He doesn’t! They know of Him but does HE KNOW THEM? Look at what Paul says that really matters.

“Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. (This is what “religious people” are doing in Jesus name which are the majority of the “Christians” today. See Matthew 7:21-23 again!) But now, after ye have known God, or RATHER are KNOWN of God”.

I’d rather have 5 Real Believers doing God’s will praying for us than 10,000 praying that He doesn’t even hear!

We also know that the “Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings that cannot be uttered” and he maketh intercession for the saints according to the WILL of God”, Romans 8:26-27

When the True Believers pray things happen and He burdens them to help us while we are in the this time period of needing the help of His children! If the Lord so guides you to help us here is where you can send a love offering: www.givesendgo.com/G9AT9 May the Lord bless you all!
