Dear Dr. Harris:
I’m writing this letter with sincere concern and fear for the current state and condition of the ministry that was left in your care by the Founder and Dean Emeritus, Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley, as the International Dean of the Institute of Divine Metaphysical Research (“I.D.M.R.”) and for the souls that have received the doctrine that you and your assistant deans have been perpetuating as a progressive revelation beyond what Dr. Kinley originally received by divine vision and revelation and taught up until his death February 9, 1976. If I.D.M.R. still considers itself to be a school and not a so-called church, I urgently encourage you to have this letter read in its entirety before the assembly prior to February 9, 2011. If not, I’ll make certain it is distributed en masse via email on that date.
I, led by the holy spirit in me, have written several messages to the assemblies across the country and distributed those messages via email so that the messages would not be hindered and members could be privy to the messages and determine for themselves if the content of the messages are untrue. The slogan of I.D.M.R. is supposed to be “speak the truth” and I endeavored to do so in every message I sent out. Everyone in the school is familiar with a few things that the Founder did say one of them being, “Every tub MUST sit on its own bottom!” So I did not initially write the messages directly to you they were sent to the members of the school so they could utilize their own understanding and not what someone they hold in high esteem has to say in regards to the messages. I.D.M.R. is supposed to be a school and not a so-called church and therefore, the students should have some foundation of their own to make a judgment on any matter without the necessity of having to depend on someone else to pass judgment for them.
In July 2005, when you received the book from Dr. Beverly Allen highlighting the contrasts in doctrine of: 1) what Dr. Kinley taught himself for 45 years 2) what you taught when Dr. Kinley was in the flesh and lastly 3)what you are now teaching. You made a bold statement that the book Dr. Beverly Allen had compiled showing these discrepancies in the doctrine would be “a missile” and the main thing that would “divide the I.D.M.R.”; however, it’s a missile that never got launched because when you brought the book before the assembly you discredited the work Dr. Beverly Allen had done and openly mocked it. What you essentially did was gave your “spin” on it and took away the liberty from each member of the school to make their own “personal detailed investigation of important matters” (as Dr. Kinley admonished us all to do in his Words of Wisdom)! Dr. Allen intended for the book to be for you and you brought it to the attention of the student body. What is more hypocritical than sitting in a doctrine that professes to be “the truth and the only truth in the world” and not be able to examine the very doctrine that you’re in? If you had divine wisdom, Dr. Harris, you would have made the book available to all of the schools or, at least, all of the state deans to give access of the book to the student body. If you were really transparent and willing to be examined you could have a PDF file of the book posted on the IDMR.net website so that all can be privy to examine its contents.
Now, I know you no longer encourage that the doctrine began at Moses, however; allow me in my obedience to the holy spirit to do so. When Moses gave the instructions to the Children of Israel as to how they were going to be delivered out of the Land of Egypt they were told to take out a lamb on the 10th day and hold it over until 14th and EXAMINE the lamb to make sure that it was without spot and blemish and then kill the lamb between the two evenings. Now that lamb had to be a perfect lamb because it reflected the Lamb of Yahweh, which is Yahshua the Messiah, being a perfect sacrifice which was offered up for the sins of all mankind. So why would you deny the assembly to examine the book (or missile as you claimed it to be) to make full proof of your ministry? Yahshua himself allowed himself to be examined. The Apostle Paul allowed himself to be examined. Dr. Kinley allowed himself to be examined. And we were all admonished by the Apostle Paul in 2 Corintians 13:5, “Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Yahshua the Messiah is IN YOU, except ye be reprobates?” So, Dr. Harris, I don’t know if one of your Dr. Kinley birthed sons is fully equipped to be examined but I do know that Yahshua the Messiah is.
Dr. Gary Mathis was encouraged by the Founder to stay in Los Angeles and support you. However, I doubt seriously that any of us are suppose to support anything or anyone that is set to destroy the truth whatever the circumstances might be. When someone asks you to support someone it could mean that you are to be there as a watchful and critical eye making sure that they are not to stray from the truth. The holy spirit would never intend for “support” to mean to uphold and partner with a lie. Dr. Mathis said in 1985 at the Southern Regional Convention in Atlanta, Ga (his testimony was relayed to me by a minister that was present) that the ministry fails if they do not bring to the people’s hearts and minds that Yahshua the Messiah (as a quickening spirit) is in them; which is still one’s ONLY hope of glory! The current state of the ministry is so far from bringing anyone to that basic truth because the majority of the people in I.D.M.R. are glorifying, singing praises to and praying to receive a birthed son given to them by Henry Clifford Kinley! How far will these poor souls be led from the truth under your leadership, Dr. Harris? And how long will you continue to support this apostasy, Dr. Mathis?
This teaching is the most absolute truth on terra firma. The true gospel of the kingdom, when it is taught correctly and with love, it is witnessed by the heavens, the earth, the pattern of the tabernacle, the migration of the Children of Israel and more importantly, by our own physical bodies. That was your gift that was given to you personally by Yahshua himself, Dr. Harris. If you had continued to minister this gospel witnessed by the physical body you would be the most sought after minister on this planet right now. There would be no one that could refute what you were teaching because it would be witnessed by Yahshua’s highest creation, the man himself. Instead you coveted Dr. Kinley’s gift and you have made shipwreck the gospel.
Dr. Aaron Bryant appeared to be, at one time, a very adequate minister. I can recall vividly the night I got married in 1987 the lecture that he gave. It was a lecture about how the man’s body is a perfect witness to Yahshua the Messiah. Shamefully, Dr. Bryant now believes he received nothing from Yahshua the Messiah but instead he gives all credit for his understanding to Henry Clifford Kinley. Well, since Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley often stated himself that “Henry C. Kinley can’t teach you anything about the purpose of Yahweh cause he don’t know nothing about it.” I suspect that’s why Dr. Bryant no longer is effective in his ministry. However, where all have failed; and regretfully, even some of those that don’t go along with you and your doctrine, have failed to bring the hearers to the reconciliation of the truth. This teaching has been more used to divide than to reconcile souls back to Yahweh through Yahshua the Messiah which is the purpose of Yahweh in simplicity. Dr. Kinley’s first question is also the last, “How is Yahweh going to reconcile the world IN RIGHTEOUSNESS?” as it is stated in Acts 17:30-31. Note, the verse does not say in unrighteousness as it is commonly taught in the schools. This gospel is to bring the hearers to the reality as stated in Colossians 1:26-27, “Even THE MYSTERY which hath been hid from ages and generations, but now is made manifest to his sons: To whom Yahweh would make known what is the riches of the glory of this MYSTERY among the nations, which is THE MESSIAH IN YOU, the ONLY hope of glory!” As it states in Revelations 10:7 “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel (Yahshua the Messiah in Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley) when he shall begin to sound, THE MYSTERY of Yahweh should be FINISHED, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”
So I conclude that you and your ministry have held this basic truth in unrighteousness and having not love for the truth or the brethren. I’m confident that unless you and those that support your ministry are willing to repent and return to preaching the truth as it was revealed to and preached by Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley as a true minister of Yahshua the Messiah, there is no hope of salvation as there is no other name under heaven by which one can be saved, saving the name of Yahshua the Messiah.
I hope and pray you do not think this to be my admonition but you were personally forewarned by Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley that at the end young lions would tell you elders things you would not want to adhere to saying, ‘They were not taught by Dr. Kinley and are still wet behind the ears.’ Well, I’m just one of many because there are more of us than there are of the 10% of IDMR who profess to be birthed sons birthed by Dr. Kinley! We are the children of the only true Elohim and our advocate, Yahshua the Messiah. So it’s Yahshua the Messiah that you and those that have endorsed your doctrine will have to give account to for what you’ve done.
I give the most fervent love and encouragement to all the brethren in the I.D.M.R. system and those that have left the schools that have held fast to the truth that is in Yahshua the Messiah and be of good courage and stand with joy and defend this truth not fearing men as all the prophets and apostles have done before us because they without us cannot be made perfect. The day is far spent and your salvation is nearer than when you first believed!
All praises, honor and glory to the only true Elohim, Yahshua the Messiah, our savior who is blessed forever more.

p.s. It has for a long time been my earnest desire to come to Los Angeles personally to deliver this message; however, my current financial situation has not allowed me to do so. Nevertheless, my message is the same whether present or absent.
