Nate Elznic, Where is He Now?
Post date: Jul 15, 2015 7:51:41 PM
It's with great sorrow that I have heard news on Nate Elznic. Why, after 5+ years do I still write about him?
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
It's sad to see that such a great orator destroyed so many lives through manipulation. I've written in great detail on this topic and you're free to read what I've written.
The problem here isn't just that Nate has destroyed lives, but that he did it from the pulpit. So many struggled and left their faith because of Nate's treachery. Some struggled with suicide, others sexuality. In the end, God does judge the preacher more harshly. (James 3:1)
But, that's not what this is about. This letter is an open warning to the churches in Colorado and anywhere else to where Nate may move. There's a long trail of bodies in this man's past. Please keep that in mind before granting him any authority.
Chances are, Nate is already starting a church of his own. In starting it, he'll place himself at the head. Once head, he'll create a close circle of people. Those that come close then leave won't speak openly about him. Instead, they'll just fade away.
The question is how many other people will have to suffer under this man. The same person who has made no attempts to reconcile with those he damaged. His statements were that those who left should come apologize to him. This is the constant message confirmed by the many that left Nate and apologized for not believing me.
Additionally, it's public knowledge that Nate forclosed on his house.
Why is this important? Over the course of 3-4 years, Nate farmed out construction work to the many people he damaged. All of these people put their blood and sweat into the establishment of his family's home. Fueled by Nate's claims that there was a prophecy that they'd all be favored of God, it's pretty motivating to think that what you're doing is the will of the Almighty.
Once established, Nate would become angry with the same people for not sweeping his floors and maintaining his yard. He would say they're lazy or unfaithful sons. He'd speak publicly about them when they weren't present, then play nice when he needed something from them. This is the Nate Elznic that we all learned to fear. Nate was feared so much to the point that people from whom he stole money have not yet received compensation.
I especially have concern for Nate's children. The same children that he would emotionally abuse behind closed doors. He would tell us how Shekinah had a Jezebel spirit. How she would be manipulative. What kind of father says that about his own children? What type of father tells his crying daughter to stop crying because she's just being manipulative? I can think of at least 18 witnesses to situations like this.
People make mistakes. Sadly, the unrepentant only leave justice for God. I hope some day that Nate will make amends with all those he's hurt. I'll believe it when I hear from them that he's made amends. Not the usual amends that Nate uses where he says "I'm sorry YOU feel that way" or something the similar, but the real amends of admitting his own hand in all that was done. In the meantime, I see Nate as a wolf in sheep's clothing. He satiates his own appetite at the expense of others.
While I will not take these posts down, I will certainly leave them as a warning to all who consider trust in Nate. But, should Nate repent and reconcile, I will make sure that the world knows.

May God grant his children a very separate path from the one he has walked.One that's firmly rooted in the truth of God and giving no room for unjust gain.
May God also grab those who were hurt and bring them back in to His (God's) love. May their wounds be healed. May they receive their reconciliation to God.
