The Prosperity Gospel?

In September 2022, The LORD began to show me things I did not want to hear about others, but my loyalty is to The LORD Jesus Christ.

In September 2022, The LORD began to show me things I did not want to hear about others, but my loyalty is to The LORD Jesus Christ.

Some things about people and ministers and so-called ministries have been shocking.  Back in 2006 I went to Charlotte NC to visit and to attend some meetings.

I ended up at a meeting being held in an old PTL building.  Anyway, as I entered, I noticed there were tons of books and materials to purchase in the lobby, and myself and a friend went into the meeting to find a place to sit, and we decided to go up about halfway in bleacher type seating and the building seemed to look like there were at least 500 people.

Suddenly, I started feeling a gut-wrenching burden and I was bent over weeping.  I could tell my friend and people around me did not understand why I could not stop, but I kept praying as quietly as possible.

I kept asking God what was wrong, and I just continued to pray and yield to The Holy Spirit.  All I could do was pray in The Spirit in Tongues and weep between my legs and I could not stop.

As the service started, I still was not able to stop praying nor could I get up.  As the service continued, it was turned over to a man who got up on the platform and began to speak and began to act like a spiritual auctioneer.

He started with $1000 dollars stating that if the audience would give the money, then God was obligated to give them something.

The place was packed, and when I heard that man say that I began to weep louder, and I prayed to God under my breath, that if it were His Will for me to leave, that He would tell my friend to ask me to leave.

Right after that thought and prayer, my friend said let us get out of here.

I got my things together and we got up to leave, and you could hear in the silence the sound of “gasping air” when we stood up to leave and everyone was looking at us with shock on their faces and I was still weeping.

As we walked out of that building the weight of that burden lifted off me, and we went to our vehicle and prepared to leave.  As we pulled out of the parking lot there was a steady stream of people leaving that building.

“If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.  From such withdraw yourself.
Now godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”  
1 Timothy 6:3-10 NKJ.

God has allowed me to experience and feel just a little of what Jesus did when He wept over The Temple and how angry He was with the Money Changers in The Temple.

“Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.  And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.””   Matthew 21:12-13 NKJ.

The prosperity gospel is a damnable heresy and a false teaching spoken by false teachers and preachers.

I came up after I was baptized in the Holy Ghost in 1984, and a couple men I met gave me booklets about financial prosperity in The Church.

So, like a lot of folks, I was exposed to a lot of this type of teaching in the 1980’s.

I also want to apologize to God and to you for teaching this damnable heresy.  I have seen a lot of error through the years and witnessed and experienced it first-hand and I imagine there will be more that God will expose as the days draw near to the return of The LORD Jesus Christ.

I have been experiencing an opening of my eyes to what I have been blinded to.  Much of it of late has been shocking and I hope and pray He continues to expose everything that is hidden in us all.

I do not know how much is being revealed, but I am grateful and continue to pray as a watchman of The LORD so that I will remain on the wall and continue to warn the people.

There are many charlatans and Christian con artists who will be exposed in the coming days, and we must draw near to God in a sincere heart of love and in simplicity in prayer, study our Bible, and obedience to His Word only!  Amen?

“Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do.  For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’ But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore, you will receive greater condemnation.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.’ Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obliged to perform it.’ Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it. He who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it. And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and [l]self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’
Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. 33Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes:some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of The LORD!”  
Matthew 23:1-39 NKJ.
