Jesus overlooking Jerusalem ~ A man of sorrows aquainted with grief ~ New Artwork by AveHurley

Jesus Overlooking Jerusalem

Recently I was asked to do a mural in a church in Lock Haven Pa.

They wanted a mural depicting the title.Included they wanted to incorporate some of the thoughts that Jesus may have been experiencing while alone on the Mount of Olives looking across the Jordan River, where he was baptized 3 years earlier.It was sunset and his time was coming soon to be the lamb of God.

He pondered why Jerusalem always kills her prophets when doing the will of God. He longed to gather his people together to himself as he knew they would too suffer for the sake of the gospel.

He looked at the temple and knew it was going to be destroyed in 70 AD and with clenched fist, knew that he was going to defeat satan.

He prayed for his followers that God would keep them through their trials.He was a man of sorrows aquainted with grief, but he knew that in the end he would stand victorious and a new Jerusalem would come down from the sky where he would one day reign as the King of kings.

All this went into the planning and creating of the mural and from the digital images I took when it was completed, I was able to create new digital paintings which I now have been printing as high resolution , high quality giclee printings that I am now introducing online and offering for individual sales.

Jesus, a man of sorrows. This is a close up digital painting stemming from my mural. It has been completed in my digital art program and printed via giclee inkjet high resolution, high quality individual prints that I make and sign myself.

This is available in framable prints & cards and ACEOs/ATCs from my art shop on Etsy.

This is the entire scene with a different face also done digitally.

This is the completed digital painting that is available in sizes up to 13 x19 inches. It is available on Ebay currently as well as on Etsy.

My ebay id is “avehurleyillustrations” if you want to check my current auctions out.

I hope you like these paintings and feel inspired by them!



Talking about COBU, CHURCH OF BIBLE UNDERSTANDING,Stewart Traill, S&G Photographics. Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning…




The Church of Bible Understanding {COBU} emerged out of a small groups of fellowships on the east coast in the early 70’s.They were kids mostly that loved Jesus and wanted to serve him with their whole hearts.While many youth of the day were partying and getting high, these kids looked to Jesus to rule their lives and found fellowships together and walked the walk and talked the talk.

They were however young and impressionable and one older man, atrue narcissist,  a man who was/is charismatic and so devious wormed his way into this young fellowship, gaining trust and position began directing their steps into the direction that would eventually enslave them to him and remove their hopes for any quality of life in this world.

He was and still is a destroyer holding [willing?] brainwashed captives to this very day and leaving in his wake, are all the people whose lives are still sorely affected by his treachery.

This is an account of the days when he was openly transforming these young Christians into his brainwashed servants.What he does is not technically considered illegal but it should be and we need laws to prevent people like him from doing what they do. But how? It is so insidious as the victims he still controls have been cut off from the world of today and most fear re-entering it. Believe it or not, it is happening in NYC~! today……………….

In 76 when COBU focused more on new numbers then IN’ retention

I think’ it was more involved than we could imagine.

Stewrat [initially a typo but fitting] was charismatic and had that ability to mesmerize many people.

The older brethren who sensed things going wrong were not so enamoured anymore. they now became a liability to Stewrat’s plans of birthing his own little nation of drones.

This was partly due to  to the changing from small self financed fellowships with limited outside freedoms to how people were  then being herded into warehouses and enslaved for the ’cause’ thinking they were serving Jesus was actually being fed into Stewrat’s BORG….

Stewrats’s  ability to initially impress certain  vulnerable people who would be open to listening proved fruitful.

He saw who he could control as opposed to who he couldnt. He needed the ‘front‘ of  a Christian fellowship, as the means to achieve his ends.

Emphasizing about remaining faithful was the vehicle used to compel people to comply. Those who did not were verbally abused and shunned and cast down, to either escape or openly leave, but  most had to escape.

How people left  was also carefully calculated on Stewrat’s part.. He couldnt just allow people to leave while they were looking at all justified or that would lead to others leaving

He needed a retentive work force so it was instilled that to leave was  leaving Jesus and  to not yield to the group, under his direction was disobeying Jesus and punishable by hell fire. To leave was to backslide.

 He could then surmize who would be suitable be ingrafted.
Around May of 76 the word went out not to trust the older brothers and sisters and the chain of command was upheaveled.

Newer, younger members were encouraged to attack older members who were then shamed and shunned while the new recruits got a pat on the head and became Stewrat’s favorites & were developed into a type of Hitler Youth to report anyone who might be into sin…Understanding the bible no longer was the precedent, compliance was.

This also encouraged a sense of  less true spirituality and  more minor narcissistic tendencies to emerge within the ranks and those who were good at being Official Reprovers [OR’s} made everyone else  fearful and careful not to appear to be questioning or being dissident…

They got more and more militant, more physical labor, more compliance, more willingness to snitch to get  a pat on the head from Stewrat who was systematically setting up alliances with those he could trust to control and those who might eventually expose his game.

Out with the old , in with the new… Eventually picking up homeless people who had ‘no life anyway’ and exploiting them as well as those with in the ranks so long as the wheels kept turning and Stewrat’s power increased as the  money rolled in..

Well just some more thoughts on his devilish genious and under the counter achievements in the early days of COBU…

Now after manipulating and controlling thousands of people from 1971 through present, stealing their youth, energies, faith, dreams and more, Stewart has extracted his profit by the sufferings of those he controlled "in the name of a jesus,[not the real Jesus] making them think to disobey Stewart and his gang[or inner circle], was to be backsliding, sealing their fate to go to hell’a  fate worse than death and prevent most from exposing the entire scam to the outside world officials. 

By these methods he has controlled some for over 30 yrs! In exchange for giving their lives to his control, many have however learned to work in various businesses with the brainwashed privilege of donating their paychecks back to Stewart’s church{COBU} to avoid taxation. They are ensnared since they can not leave with more than the clothes on their backs into a world they do not know.

Stewart in turns has provided minimal room and board and a stipend for each member. At one point it was $1 a day for up to 18 hours hard labor! Sundays, the sabbath was cancelled so workers could make more money for Stewart’s ambitions.A member earning up to $1000 a week could expect a stipend of up to $30 and carfare of up to $30. Money given to  the members is  in cash envelopes.Governing boards of elite members have to penny pinch on each member or they themselves lose rank and privilege. Instilling the thought of crucifying their flesh to be sure they wouldnt ask for more.

Many members were/are underage runaways as well as adults with various degrees of personality disorders, less likely to complain of their abuse.Those who can manage enough thought to question anything are suppressed or shunned and most eventually run away with the clothes on their backs and a trash bag of personal belongings reflecting the fruits of uyears of servitude to this inhumane system of human rights violations.

They would move the ‘drones’ through the underground apt/warehouse system , change the kids appearance [haircuts, dyed hair etc] and names and feed them into the church to become worker bees. Moving them around to unfamiliar surroundings, never watching any TV , limited contact with nonmembers outsiders, instilling fear of the outside world and guilt so they would stay and not know  how to leave or where to go.  They were stifled in thinking that their thoughts were evil and of rebellion and had to be brouht under subjection, causing them to police each other and tell on anyone that would think of dissenting or questioning Stewart’s authority of those who answered directly to Stewart.

Stewart handpicked certain men who would follow his direction in exchange for a piece of the action, thus motivating others to do his dirty work. He once ordered several men to beat his own minor son senselessly for shoplifting.The men only received probation and Stewart was never charged! This happened in Philadelphia at the ‘lamb house’ where new recruits were conditioned, brainwashed and fed back into the work force.

Stewart Traill did/does however keep a paranoid sense of self preservation, never letting even his trusted enforcers be secure in their own positions. Secrecy was/is paramount to keeping control. Any enforcer who showed/shows any inclination towards establishing more power was/is demoted quickly.

Keeping even his enforcers off guard Stewart Traill,  became more powerful. He had/has enablers in business legal matters create ways to hide and launder money and cover their tracks so nothing could be traced to Stewart. He had everything placed under the church name to avoid taxes and recriminations but generous allowances for himsel that were more than a king would receive. He would often say that he takes nothing from the church, since in fact it is laid at his feet. 

The huge cash flow from these slave laborers  and donations sought from corporations, government grants and outside volunteer sources mushroomed into a money making fortune that can not even be estimated.

Some of this money and donations has been funneled and reinvested into other business ventures creating new businesses that gradually have been detached from their original source. Much like how organized crime attempts to go legite~Still it is blood money of those who were his slaves.

The transition from unskilled child/teen/young adult laborers to repairmen refurbishing used vacuum cleaners and selling them at flea markets[sales jobs included men and women] went to carpet cleaning services when Stewart purchaced 10 carpet cleaning machines in 1976.

‘Privileged’ loyal members would take a carpet cleaner and go out in the streets of NYC seeking businesses to clean carpets for. As the money began to flow, more carpet cleaners were purchased and more laborers sent out. There was endless work opportunites. Women members were sent out  with ‘flyers’ soliciting businesses and making appointmets for the men to come and clean carpets. Contracts were soon made  with area businesses and corporations as the sales people sent in to negotiate deals by undercutting every business in the city.This was easy since the work force was slaves. Stewart could have the enforcers push the men to work work nights and weekends. It was not surprising that much of the work done was performed in places linked to organized crime in NYC.

Some notoriety occurred when the Seinfeld comedy series once made reference to them as the "Carpet Cleaning Cult".

I talked with a member once who bragged about making over $300 a week. I asked her how much of that money did she actually recieve in hand, since when I was in they took my entire paycheck and never gave me an allowance.They were supposed to pay my debts off out  of the money I ‘donated’ but never did that either.

After repeated questioning she finally admitted to getting $10 a week and not every week did she receive it but when it was her time of month and she needed sanitary supplies! Having a soda was a luxury and indulging in the flesh…

The workers slept in sleeping bags on the floors of dirty broken down warehouses in the Hell’s Kitchen section of NYC. Up to 130 members lived in squalored conditions sharing 2 toilets and having no nathing facilities. Members would weekly go to public showers to get washed. Lice , roaches and rat infested, one member told me that he bought dog flea shampoo to try and get the bugs out of his hair!

Since there were ‘some’ married families involved in the early days, children would often become sick and have to go to clinics. When the same addresses came up for so many sick children, the Board of Health was sent in to discover the squalor and shut down some of Stewarts home warehouses, forcing him to buy some run down tenements and scatter his flock. People were then overcrowded into apartments, living in ‘shifts’ while the carpet cleaning business {Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning Services} was born.

At this time any new marriages were strongly discouraged, celibacy and devotion were overly emphasized. All efforts were to benefit a strong work force and keep costs down. Area businesses  made complaints to city officials as the COBU’s Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning Services was putting others out of work.

Charges were filed for tax evasion and a new loop hole was found and employed. Members were now given their salary checks as ‘independent contractors’ so the Christian Brothers didnt have to pay tax on their behalf. Then to keep all the money in Stewart’s pockets, these salaries were/are then donated to the COBU as charitable contributions.This way members also avoid paying taxes.Members live meagerly off their allowance which never enables them to be able to afford to leave the group.

Delving into the authenticity of the tax exempt status of the ‘church’, Stewart Traill told the members about the movie "Marjo" and that the best way to beat the system was to establish a charity that was cheap to run, such as an orphanage in a third world country…Stewart picked Haiti.. the poorest country in the eastern hemisphere. One where he would come out the winner regardless to anything else.. This made the church look good to the public but was another way for him to exploit humankind.   

Starting the mission was a stroke of devilish genius..feeding starving children.. They began soliciting larger corporate donations as well as government grants to assist in this mission , while not being monitored by any one.They accept any type of monetary or physical property in exchange for tax credits to those who donate.

These donations are not all totally accounted for since some do not require charitable write off declarations. Many antiquities ‘donated’ are then warehoused under member guard and stored til they can resurface in yet another business of the church, " Olde Good Things" E-bay store and sell valuables for thousands of dollars.

Tax accounting is now very professional and what is written down and accounted for has met basic requirements to elude detection, however this is an underground religious named version or organized crime!no better than any other criminal enterprises in America, only more subtle and devious, undetectable except, perhaps by those who escaped its grasp and now live in anonymity, mentally , physically and spiritually abused for decades.  

Today, with 25 yrs of guaranteed good service, Christian Brothers Carpet Cleaning Services is in NYC, LA , SanDiego and Florida. Customers have no idea of what evil enabled this business to form. It is said they even employ some outsiders which give the appearance of a normal enterprise.

The mission in Haiti was plagued with stories of abuse and mismanagement. Young members went there to care for the children were unqualified and many orphans have been beaten and abused without justice ever being served. Corporate doantions keep everything afloat and Traill still prospers from it. He flies one of his 4 church owned planes to deliver the goods to Haiti with Uncle Sam’s picking up the tab under the Bush initiative of funding faith based human needs programs. Stewart would receive accolades for his human services, ironically…

Under the auspices of this charity, donations of planes, plan parts and services are covering most of the costs of operations.New volunteers, separate from the drones have been enlisted to upscale the operation, making it look more honest.Many people unaware of the sinister purpose of Stewart Traill have been unwittingly offering their services in good faith.

At least the orphans get fed…the percentage of what he collects to do this is however funneled into other ventures and very small percentage is there for the good. Where are the Rico laws when you need them? How can a used vac repairman gain the power and position attained by Stewart Traill????
