Meeting with the IRS

On July 18, 2017 we have received an official summons to appear before the IRS in Missoula, Montana. They have threatened me as the Senior Pastor of The Empowerment Center Church and with one year in Federal Prison if I did not turn over to them the names, telephone numbers, address information and social security information from each tithing member of the Church and those Churches that we have freely blessed with our ministry support here at On August 1st, 2017 at 9am I met the IRS at the specified location. Here is an audio of the entire exchange, listen very carefully to the message the Lord commanded me to deliver to them…

I praise the Lord that he commanded me to record my encounter with the Government. He told me that they would lie during this process and that this recording would reveal the truth. Now that Agent Young has spoken under oath to the Court and says, “Joshua Kenny-Greenwood appeared at a meeting with the IRS on August 1, 2017, as required by the summons, but he failed to produce any documents or give meaningful testimony”. In context of our previous communications with the IRS, this recording proves his words otherwise. Also, the Court ruling of Richard Fields vCity of Philadelphia, No. 16-1650 (3d Cir. 2017) which gives us the First Amendment right to record law enforcement entities (such as the IRS) so long as we are doing so for the purpose of criticizing. In this, the Lord commanded that his criticism of them be made publicly known. Simply read below.

Here is the message the Lord commanded me to deliver to the IRS at this meeting:

The Lord holds The Internal Revenue Service in Contempt. Though you have been told on multiple occasions that The Empowerment Center is a Church and it’s office of Overseer is a legally recognized religious Corporation Sole, you have willfully decided to ignore the rule of law and instead are attempting to usurp authority over the Church in claiming that you have authority over the biblical tithes and offerings that solely belong to God himself as described in the foundation of the Christian faith which was founded thousands of years prior to the institution of this nations laws. Though The Establishment Clause of the Constitution of the United States acknowledges the Separation of Church and State, the State has willfully decided to violate the peace of this separation in favor of terrorizing outspoken Christian Leaders with threats of intimidation, blackmail, extortion, audit, potential imprisonment and even death. Therefore, the Lord commands and the United States Constitution allows for me to obey and express that not even a single holy article, holy paper(s), holy effect(s) or holy relics will be given from the Church to the State for any reasons whatsoever.

I greatly fear the Lord and in this situation he has spoken a word and has granted me victory.

—end of message—

Mind you that this is after we have already sent the IRS two previous letters regarding their attempts that they have completely ignored with our first letter here and our second letter here.

Here is video evidence of their summons, its threats against me as the Sr. Pastor and how they intend to attempt to go through me to get to the items belonging to the Church.

If you desire to learn why the work of our Church is so important and the effect that both the Church Establishment Affidavit and Corporation Sole have regarding the Church as a whole here in America, listen to our latest recorded Testimony Tuesday call here.
