Neville Johnson’s beloved daughter died in a car accident in America in 1983, a few years after Neville Johnson seduced and sexually abused three successive beautiful innocent young Christian church secretaries which led to the collapse of the largest Pentecostal Church in Australia or New Zealand at the time.

These three beautiful innocent young female Christian victims were the same age as his beloved daughter.

The church was Queen Street Assemblies of God in downtown Auckland, New Zealand, which experienced rapid growth in the 1970s to become at 3000 members the largest church in Australia or New Zealand.

In those days 400 was considered a large congregation of any denomination in Australia or New Zealand. Most churches were 100-300. A church with 3000 members was unheard of in the Antipodes.

 

The question might be asked whether the death of Neville Johnson’s beloved daughter was an act of Divine retribution for Neville seducing and sexually abusing three successive beautiful innocent young female Christian secretaries, who were the same age as his beloved daughter, for causing major devastation in the body of Christ and then running away without honestly facing his many sins, apologising and repenting?

For the background on Neville Johnson and his sins, failures, lack of repentance, no apologies and escape to Perth, Western Australia,  please read the following articles of mine on this site:

There are also several articles published since then on this site about Neville Johnson’s sin of necromancy. That is, talking to the dead.

Repeating the question:

The question might be asked whether the death of Neville Johnson’s beloved daughter was an act of Divine retribution for Neville seducing and sexually abusing three successive beautiful innocent young female Christian secretaries who were about the same age as his beloved daughter, for causing major devastation in the body of Christ and then running away without honestly facing his many sins, apologising and repenting?

 

It’s definitely possible.

From Holy Scriptures in the Bible we read how Divine retribution often follows grave sin committed while in leadership, or sin committed when there is a greater degree of Holy Spirit manifestation than normal such as in a large Revival.

The account of King David and Bathsheba springs to mind.

King David and Bathsheba had the first son of their corrupt adulterous relationship taken from them by the Lord.

King David murdered Bathsheba’s husband Uriah the Hittite, who was very loyal to King David, by secretly commanding Uriah be put in the front line of battle where death was almost certain.

Earlier when Uriah returned from battle he chose to sleep outside King David’s palace, out of loyalty to him, rather than join his wife.

Sometimes our loyalty and love is only rewarded by evil towards us. It’s happened to me numerous times in my life. Any man or woman of God who walks sincerely and closely with God and engages and gives out to the world will face the same disappointments and hostilities from the hand of others.

It goes with the territory.

Our response is the test. Are we able to dig deep into God and find a position of grace whereby our heart isn’t contaminated by the evil and hostilities of others.

Then David said to Uriah, “Go down to your house, and wash your feet.” And Uriah went out of the king’s house, and a present from the king was sent out after him. But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and did not go down to his house. Now when they told David, saying, “Uriah did not go down to his house,” David said to Uriah, “Have you not come from a journey? Why did you not go down to your house?”…

2 Samuel 11: 8-10.

“Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold”.

2 Samuel 11:2.

O the temptation of a woman. And at that ‘a beautiful woman’.

When I was young, virile and handsome I used to get quite a few offers of adultery. I’ve had more than one client wife approach me in her home in a lacy petticoat or wearing only a slender brassiere and skinny little frilly panties looking for some action from a muscular sweating young builder.

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen. Less offers. (thankfully).

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen. Less offers these days. (thankfully).

 

The prophet Nathan came to King David and confronted him about his sin:

Nathan told David an allegorical story:

“The rich man had a great many flocks and herds but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb which he bought and nourished; And it grew up together with him and his children. It would eat of his bread and drink of his cup and lie in his bosom, and was like a daughter to him. Now a traveler came to the rich man, and he was unwilling to take from his own flock or his own herd, to prepare for the wayfarer who had come to him; rather he took the poor man’s ewe lamb and prepared it for the man who had come to him.”…

2 Samuel 12: 2

David responded:

So David’s anger was greatly aroused against the man, and he said to Nathan, “As the Lord lives, the man who has done this shall surely die!

Often we respond piously towards others yet we forget our many own sins and failings.

This is why Neville Johnson’s lot with God is ultimately his own to work out.

Psalm 51 is considered to be David’s prayer of repentance.

“Hide Your Face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your Presence and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.…”

Psalm 51:9-11.

King David and Bathsheba’s second son Solomon who was David’s chosen heir.

Although David’s love for Bathsheba had an unholy beginning it went on to be his greatest love.

David honoured his love for Bathsheba by promoting her son Solomon against Bathsheba’s female rivals in the polygamistic household which was common for Kings and Nobles in that era.

These days most men find one woman more than a handful yet the Moslems and the Mormons persist.

 

We can also look at many lives in the Holy Bible that went awry because of sin.

King Saul, Samson and King Herod spring to mind.

In my next article I look at more Biblical examples of Divine retribution. 

I’m also look at philosophical and theological issues like the Moral Universe and the Ethics of Divine Retribution.

The next article is, ‘Neville Johnson. Academy of Light, Perth. Was Neville Johnson’s daughter’s death in a car accident Divine Retribution his sins against young church secretaries? Part Two. Facing up to our sins’.
