PROSPERITY ON TELEVISION!
Perhaps you are a Christian. Perhaps you watch the christian Television channels. I tell you now that puting the name Christian to some of these Media giants is an affront to all Bible loving Jesus worshipping people in the world. When was the last time you heard the Gospel properly explained on such a channel? I don't think I ever have. I've been told THIS ONE TIME that if I give £47's plus a clutch of short change, I can buy a blessing out of the Bible. This Satanic monster is called Ken Copeland.
WHAT ON EARTH DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING!!!!! YOU PREACH THESE LIES AND CALL THEM GOSPEL. DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WORD MEANS. IT MEANS GOOD NEWS! YOU FIND PEOPLE AT THERE LOWEST EBB'S IN LIFE AND YOU TEACH THEM TO SINK A LITTLE DEEPER AND TO FEEL GUILTY BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT WORKING HARD ENOUGH FOR THE LORD. THAT THEIR FAITH, WHICH IS COMPLETELY OUT OF THEIR HANDS AS IT IS A GIFT FROM GOD IS NOT ENOUGH! YOU TELL PEOPLE TO DOLE OUT ALL OF THEIR MONEY TO YOUR CHURCHES AND YOUR TELEVISION PROGRAMMES SO YOU CAN BUY YOUR NICE CARS AND JETS AND HAVE YOU TEETH WHITENED TO BRIGHTNESS LEVELS NOT SEEN SINCE THE TRANSFIGURATION. YOU FEED OFF THE STARVATION OF ENTIRE SWAYTHES OF PEOPLE SELLING THEM THE LIE THAT YOU CAN SOMEHOW FREE THEM OF THEIR POVERTY BY MAKING THEM GIVE WHAT LITTLE THEY HAVE TO YOU! YOUR HOUSE STARVES THOSE WHO LOVE YOU FOR LYING TO THEM AND YOU DARE TO CALL YOURSELVES CHRISTIAN.
YOU NEED TO REPENT! YOU NEED TO REPENT NOW AND PUBLICALLY BEFORE YOUR OFTEN IMPOVERISHED INTERNATIONAL CONGREGATION AND ON YOUR ELEVATED WORLD STAGE! I TELL YOU NOW, EVEN JOHN PIPER HATES YOU! JOHN PIPER ONLY HATES SIN AND SATAN. AND WHEN THE SECOND JUDGEMENT COMES AND THOSE MADE ALIVE IN CHRIST ARE TO JUDGE THE ANGELS AND THOSE WHO RISE THIS SECOND TIME, I WILL PETITION SORELY BEFORE THE LORD TO BE THE ONE WHO RAINS DOWN UPON JUST ONE OF YOU WITH THE FULL WRATH OF THE FATHER. I CAN THINK OF NO MORE DEADLY CURSE ON EARTH NOR IN HEAVEN. I WOULD GLADLY WORK WITH JESUS AND THE ANGELS WHO RUN HELL TO ENSURE THAT YOU PAY BACK EVERY PENNY YOU HAVE STOLEN THROUGH YOUR PUNISHMENT, THAT YOU ANSWER FOR EVERY BREATH OF AIR THAT YOU HAVE POLUTED WITH YOUR FALSE DOCTRINES AND YOUR LIES. THAT YOUR ETERNITY IN HELL PERMITS YOU NO RESTBITE FOR SUCH IS THE RIGHTEOUSNES OF HIS ENMITY TOWARDS YOU. IN YOUR PRIDE MAY YOU SUFFER THE SAME PUNISHMENT AS SATAN FOR YOU ARE NO CLOSER TO THE THRONE THAN HIM. YOU BLASPHEME AGAINST THE SPIRIT BY EVEN DARING TO SPEAK HIS NAME. THERE IS YOUR SIN. THERE IS YOUR UNFORGIVABLE TRANSGRESSION. DAMNED I CALL YOU. DAMNED!
I mean my curse towards these sick freaks who claim miracles and demand payment. Isn't that used to describe the false Gods in the book of revelation. The false prophets who speak out AGAINST Christ. It is Jesus who asks us to persevere and fight through our difficult times to the glory of the Father. Those who fight through adversity and remain faithful will win through to the end and the glory of God through Jesus Christ.
I feel farely safe in saying that the book of revelation is probably refering to these people among many who have been decieved and overcome by Satan in the same way that Judas Iscariot was. We should feel compassion and sorrow for these imbeciles but right now I cannot. Because their so called teachings are leaching away the gift of salvation from so many by demanding money in the name of their God. There is only one God who is concerned with money. He's not even God. That is the God of the air of this world. Satan himself. And the people who attend and worship these prosperity ministries are actively holding on to unsound doctrine and believing ungodly words and are falling down in worship of Satan.
I saw one scene, there was a Preacher (see the Leroy thompson video below. Please hear only the voice of greed.) Satan was speaking in that man. And listen closely to his prayers. He prays, "MY bills will be paid. " Not the shared wealth of Christ through his love, but the selfish desires of greed and self grandisement are in this mans prayers. And the foolish worldly masses run to the stage to throw their money at this crazy man who serves Satan as an officer in the ranks of his spiritual warriors.
They throw their money on the stage. I'm normally cautious to use that word when speaking of Church because it has theatrical implications but in this case I have no fear in doing so because that's exactly what it is. Anyway this preacher began to dance on the money that was set on the steps and was praising his God for the Demon gift of gullability among his flok of goats. Then he returned centre stage and called his audience to prayer. His idea of prayer curdled my blood so that it ran cold. I have never witnessed more obvious Satan worship in my life. He reached out towards the people and encouraged them to do likewise. "Money!" He bellowed while snatching his hand in the air, "Cometh to me, Now!" He and the congregation repeated this prayer with its actions over and over again. Please Jesus come and put a stop to this madness! Amen!
Where is the reverence, the fear and trepidation with which we are to humbly approach Christs throne in prayer. If you are a Christian please don't buy into the televangelism nightmare. Satan owns the TV, Jesus owns the Pulpet and seldom does Jesus pulpet appear on the telvision. Below are some examples of the prosperity gospel. I have relied on the teachings of far holier and godlier men than me to explain why this gospel should never be allowed to over throw the GOSPEL Of Christ Jesus. I have also posted a testimony of a woman who found out the truth of the prosperity gospel the hard way, she found herself in a position where she was just praying for money and not for the Glory of Jesus. She felt hollow and alone and her finances led her to difficulty by the grace of God. Not everyone who worships in satans temple will emerge as triumphant as she. If you only have time for one of the video's I'd recommend John Piper on the prosperity gospel. He lays it out straight and cuts it to the bone.
They also tell you that if you give more than you can afford as a regular donation to their not evangelical but Hypocritical free church (I love ironic humour, can you spot it?) That you will become healthy wealthy and Wise. Did Paul have a success filled life then and die peacefully in his old age? No, he had his head chopped off after Begging Timothy to bring him a blanket because he was freezing in a filthed up hole in a Roman prison. What about Peter, Jesus' head boy, the dude who lead the church through its infancy, surely Peter was honoured with health, wealth and prosperity? No. He was persecuted and tormented like all who served Jesus at that time and since, and was eventually Crucified, himself pinned upside down. What about Jesus then? He Was Gods Top Man. His young 33 year old son with whom he will one day retake the world and shares permanent union with as the trinitarian God head. Surely Jesus wasn't allowed to suffer? He was sinless and pure. Jesus suffered more than any man woman or child before, after or since could or could imagine.
The Christian TV channels and the prosperity ministries claim that with faith we can claim our indipendence from our suffering through poverty, illness or circumstance. They hire so called preachers who sit there and rather than counselling you on your issue they blame you by claiming that you do not having enough faith. They elevate gifts to being equal to or even higher than the giver. John Piper said, "You have a BMW? Did Jesus give you that? 'He sure did.' 'I'll take some Jesus.'" I enjoy my pain and my suffering. Ok, not 100% of the time. Anyone who knows me will have heard me grumbling about it. But I do rejoice in it. It reminds me that I'm fortunate to be alive having smashed 10 bones in a Motorbike crash including pelvis and spine. It points to the glory of Gods providence and his gift of life.
These people are a cancer of shame which has been allowed to verbally claim a part of the inheritance of Gods Glory in our Bridal position with Christ. Yet spiritually their blood flows out like thick cold sludge before the thrown of Gods Judgement. I long for the day when these people cry out "Lord, Lord, I cast out demons in your name!" To which shall come the reply, "I never knew you."
In many ways, seeing this madness should rouse in us a joyfully repentent heart. Because the more dispicable become the ministries in this world the quicker will come the Lord to defend his faithful. I pray for each of you to recieve the HOLY SPIRIT gift of discernment. That your hearts and your faith shall not be taken in by these purveyors of Perdition. Hell's fires are Hotter than ever and with the ever growing population, so too grows the fuel that keeps it lit. Please do not be taken in by these vampires who will suck you dry and leave you embittered towards the Lord. They are Satanic and are only after your money. The sick thing is that if you wanted to start such a ministry all of your sufferings in this world might just cease. You will float through life as if riding a cloud. And if you are really good at it, you'll be able to buy your own Jet and make that a litteral truth. You would have a nice car, a pretty wife, fine clothes and a beautiful home. Your children would go to the best schools and universities and your treasure would be stored up for you here on the Earth.
If you wish for that kind of treasure you have my pitty. I for one would rather suffer in the Lord than spend one second away from him with his back turned towards me. If my King can suffer then so too can I in his service and in his service our treasure is stored up for us, not in an Earthly Bank but in a heavenly and eternal inheritance. I want to hear and I want you to hear, "Well done good and faithfull servant, enter into thy rest."
It's an interesting point to make that one of the most successful men in the world, Solomon, he had everything these prosperity preachers tell us to crave. He had more wives than there are days in the year. He had more money than anyone else on the planet. He was the most successful king the Jews had ever seen both before and after (not including Jesus who was poverty stricken in life but royaly blessed in heaven.) He had massive wisdom and could work out problems in a heartbeat. That's everything that these guys tell us to go for right? Then perhaps we should look at King Solomons life and wonder why Ecclesiastes Ch 1:1-3 runs like this. (NIV version)
1 "In the words of the teacher, son of David, King of Jerusalem:
2 Meaningless! Meaningless!" Says the teacher. "Utterly
Meaningless! Everything is meaningless."
3 What does man gain from all his labour at which he toils
under the sun?"'
Solomon in his wisdom was preaching against the prosperity gospel when he was the shining example of what it meant to be successful.
