Don’t give your offerings to heretics

 

Some people unfortunately love to be generous to the wrong persons and end up suffering for it. Keeping in context with what I want to say, I mean they give their offerings to heretics but cry when they don’t see good days and times in their life. They are upset when the preacher who committed just a little heresy now is even more blasphemous towards God, that it no longer can be ignored.

Others are mistaken that just because the preacher or ministry belongs to their own denomination, they are not supposed to discern the words and works done by them.  Such a stance is not consistent with what Lord God has given for those who believe in Jesus Christ and must be repented of with immediate effect

It is written in 1 John 4:1-3 that: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.

Jude 1:3-4 very clearly says : 3 Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

If you sow good seed expect good fruit, but if sow bad seed expect bad fruit. Never be surprised that after sowing bad seed you never see good fruit emerge from it. In a similar way if you put your offerings those who actually preach the Word of God without any deception, you can be sure of good fruit in this life and the one that is to come. Besides, no matter how good you feel about any heretic, never give your offerings to them, lest you end up eating their bad fruit in this life and at Final Judgement.

Ephesians 6:6-14 says: Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. 13 But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, 14 for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,

“Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”

O people of the faith always keep in the mind what Jesus Christ in Luke 6:38 says give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

No doubt we are to support the preaching of Gospel of Jesus Christ, in both word and deed. Pray for the Gospel to reach the ends of the earth. Pray for those who are preaching the Gospel in true holiness. And yes support them financially as how God leads you to. But at the end of the day do keep it mind, be generous for the work of God but never ever for the work of heretics. Because just like those who will be rewarded for giving unto the Kingdom of God, so also those who support deceivers and liars will receive their due reward in the form of judgement sometimes in this world but always for sure in the world that is to come

Never flatter someone into Hell

It’s a great disservice to both friends and enemies, that you flatter them into going to Hell. Never play with anyone’s salvation and after life by deceiving them about their relationship with Jesus and the Gospel. It is unwise to tell unrepentant people that they are on the way to heaven just because they are good donors to preaching of the Gospel. Don’t warn them to insult them but warn then for the sake of God’s love for them.

Love warns. Yes, it warns and will keep warning! Because its valid to do so. Because its your duty to do so. Because its your purpose to do so. All this in God’s will for your life!

  • A parent will warn his or her child to avoid eating stale food because they love to see their child healthy. Isn’t that a valid warning?
  • A doctor who loves to see his or her patient live won’t lie that its okay to have excess alcohol. Isn’t that a medical duty of a person who loves practicing medicine?
  • A professor who delights in having his or her student not fail but ace the university exams won’t deceive students into partying all year long and expecting great result. Isn’t that the professor’s purpose of teaching?

Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World spoke didn’t mince (one’s) words about Hell not one bit. Here is what he spoke about it:

  • But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,’ will be subject to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be subject to the fire of hell. (Matthew 5:22)
  • Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead, fear the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28)
  • And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell. (Matthew 18:9)
  • And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. (Mark 9:43)

So for a person who says he or she loves the Lord Jesus, one must preach all things that are mentioned in Gospel including things about Hell and repentance without any shame nor fear.

Christ be with you!

Quick Reminder : All preachers of the Gospel must preach it fully

 

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. (2 Timothy 4:1-5)

Christian prayer for 2019

 

O Lord God, forgive me of all my sins especially the one’s I kept holding on to. Forgive me for not doing the good that I was supposed to do in 2018. Give me your grace to set things right in this new year 2019.

I reject and repel all curses working and operating in my life, in the name of Jesus. And I ask that no curse that rises against me ever prospers.

Bring your healing to my body, mind and spirit. Protect me and all my Christian brothers and sisters all over the world from the snares of the Evil One. Cause your Church to always prevail against the powers of darkness, the ungodly and all heretics. Expose and banish all the Jezebel and Judas spirits from each place where your Holy Word is preached and cherished.

By your Holy Spirit, lead your Church into all truth. Please cause more and more preachers to always preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ without fear. I desire that the Gospel is preached to all nations, Judea, Israel and Samaria and also all tribes and races. Please give them a opportunity to pass from the darkness of sin to the light of Christ, where there is salvation and righteousness for those who believe.

O Lord God, you are the creator of the heavens and the Earth. So I ask in faith, that you direct the course of events that happen on earth including my nation and state. I know you hate sin and therefore I ask that you overthrow all corrupt leaders worldwide, and put in their place good leaders who will only do good. Cause the sinister plans of vain politicians to be exposed. May all fake news groups be named and shamed and the people be alerted against them.

In your loving mercy, I plead that you give me your grace and healing in all things. I reject all false counsel of the world, and ask for your wisdom in all areas of my life. Help to recognize false friends and bad friends and so keep away from their evil influence. Bless my vocation and career that I be kept away from deception and be given more opportunities to do my best. Give me good favor in sight of all who see me and work with me. Cause my good works to shine before others so that they give glory to You my Father in Heaven.

I plead that in this year, the plans of terror are exposed and the forces of justice prevail against them. Please protect people worldwide from all natural and economic disasters. I ask in faith, that all nations and the their law enforcement personal take actions to stop human slavery and illegal trafficking of people especially children. Give freedom to those illegally chained and let them go free.

O Jesus Christ, I ask for my colleagues, friends and family,that they are kept safe from all evil and traps wherever they go. Save them from evil spirits and their evil influence. Please cause your grace to shine on them, especially those who have not yet received the Gospel. Let them surely be given opportunities to repent of their sins and believe in the Gospel. Give them good health of mind, body and spirit, everyday. I ask that you remove all curses working in lives.

I ask all this especially for the year 2019, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Never trust your Church elders more than God

Disclaimer: This post is not about bashing nor maligning your Church elders but rather knowing the difference between them and God.

All praise to the Lord God who gives elders in the Church to help us in the mission of preaching the Gospel to all nations and making disciples of them. May the Holy Spirit lead and guide them in the grace of God. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. (Psalm 118:8)

Never trust your Church elders more than God. Now I do not say disrespect them but rather give due respect to them. However that being said,  never make your Church elders a god  above the Lord God. This will put you in deep error and eventual darkness if you refuse to repent in this area.

Now the Bible says in Jeremiah 17:5-8 :-

Thus says the Lord:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
    and makes flesh his strength,
    whose heart turns away from the Lord.
He is like a shrub in the desert,
    and shall not see any good come.
He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness,
    in an uninhabited salt land.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
    whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
    that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
    for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
    for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

By the above verses it is very obvious that we as believers in Christ are not to make flesh our strength but rather are to trust in the Lord God. To make it clear, we cannot let any man, even the one’s who are the Church elders tell us not to pray to God. It’s very obvious that any Church elder who hinders you from worshiping Jesus Christ is a manifest heretic claiming to be a Christian!

So what I just said, is this a new teaching? No, not at all but something that needs to be reiterated. The following verses of Jude 1:3-4 confirm this:

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Each of those who profess the Christian faith are already warned about certain people who for the record; pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.  And now such people might not be, each and every person you see in Church but just a few you need to beware of.  The basic thing would be to never give heed to any words and philosophies by any one at any level in the Church which contradicts the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

It’s very rare that anyone in the church might tell you to not worship God, because they know that they will be found out and tackled very soon. However  do be on your guard against such people.

There is a higher chance of people who may misdirect all the glory which is due to God to themselves. No matter what healing you receive by anyone praying for you or laying their hands never praise them like how God is to be praised. It’s one thing to be thankful to the Church elders and another thing to give them the kind of respect which God only deserves. So do know the difference and do not put your elders above God, ever!

Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit. (Matthew 15:14)

Then there is a subtle trick that the Devil uses to mislead people and most of them fall for it. He simply causes certain gullible Church elders to downplay the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So to not offend others, they will avoid preaching against certain sins or all sins. But they are okay with offending God though,  by continuing to work their heresies. Some even show the Gospel as a guideline instead of a reality to follow. By making certain things of Gospel such a repentance, good works, prayers etc as optional by falsely assuming that doing the will of God was done away with the Cross, they lead more people to damnation that even the more common vilest of vile sins could. Stay away from their ways and words and you will do a great honor to God.

Just before I close, like I mentioned earlier, not all Church elders are into wrongdoing. In fact their service to God is commendable and their sacrifices for the Kingdom of God are fragrant and undeniable. May God reward them for this. However do be on guard against those who seek more honor for themselves than the Lord God.

Christ be with you!

Learn to understand what comes from God and what comes from man

pic 9

Beware of what you believe in. There is much talk by many theologians and preachers. Some of them are highly presumptuous of what God actually wants of a person. Therefore learn to understand what comes from God and what comes from man.

Let me make it real to you in the context of healing though there are other contexts like marriage, finances etc. I’ve been to many retreats, seminars and oratories wherein there was a ‘healing service’ in which the healing minister of God as I would call them, held the claim that he/she healed a lot of people through prayer. Though I didn’t have need of any healing I wanted to learn from them as to how they are used by God to heal.

I would be amazed to see so many people cured of various ills and diseases. I would go to such places often. Then for certain years I wasn’t able to be part of any such things. Years later I decide to go again to such healing ministers. Suddenly instead of the Welcome-everyone-attitude came the legalistic-attitude. Obviously I no longer go at their doors. They would say bold and harsh statements like:

  1. “If you have AIDS or HIV its God’s Gift to you for sinning and God will NOT heal you”.
  2. “It’s God’s WILL and DESIRE that you keep suffering from your sickness like Paul” and they quote 2 Corinthians 12: 7-9 Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
  3. “I sense God is healing some person of this and this disease but I say to this person, come up and testify on the stage right now or you will LOSE your healing”.

Mostly these were the same orators whom I heard earlier but then later their behavior changed. They started putting such conditions that even Jesus himself would not put. Now I’ll tackle all of the 3 statements. Here we go:

  1. What if the person got AIDS or HIV due to blood transfusion? Would it be because of sin, no not at all. Even if a person got AIDS or HIV due to a sinful lifestyle but now is willing to follow Christ why should there be an obstacle in that persons restoration by the Lord Jesus. Sickness is NEVER the Lord God’s gift to any one. Last time I read the Bible and please note that I’ve read the whole Bible end to end, I never saw a verse about any one being “gifted” a sickness by God. Such lies are INVENTED in Hell and must rejected by every person who believes in Christ.
  2. In all the Bible there is only one case in which a person was not getting cured/healed by God. Only 1. At the same time if you read the same verses above (2 Corinthians 12:7-9) the context is completely different as to why was the case. Also these verses are highly disputed by many theologians. The main point here is that Paul had to get a PERSONAL revelation and voice DIRECTLY from God that he wouldn’t be cured. What is strange is that such healing ministers say that is God’s Will that you suffer as such but ask them if they Lord had personally told them each and every detail of the sickness of your sickness which you didn’t tell them and now ask them to mention even that revelation in detail. They will begin giving you UNCLEAR and CONFUSING answers. Now you’ll realize man and not God is speaking.
  3. Even when Jesus healed the woman who had the issue of blood (Read Mark 5:25-34 in your free time) he NEVER put a condition on her to Testify or she would lose healing. Not a single instance is ever recorded in the Bible both in the Old and New Testament of any healing minister of God back there saying ‘come and testify right now or you will LOSE your healing’. Scripture tells us to imitiate Christ (Ephesians 5:1 and 1 Corinthians 11:1) and obviously putting such limits on a person is not at all Christ-like.

Going to the context of vocations; Never take up any vocation just based on a person’s opinion that it comes from God. Check this out with God himself in prayer and reading of the scriptures. There are truly blessed men (and women) of God who told me a lot of things on vocation and gave some types of prophecies but I didn’t jump the gun but instead just noted their words in a book and went on with my life. Then I kept checking with God as to which of these came from HIM and how to go to the next step.

Some decisions like the vow-of-celibacy (not getting married) or doing full time ministry (both lay and religious) for the sake of the Gospel are “life changing decisions” and should not be based on the words of man but only if God is willing for it. And for this you need to discern.

So to summarize: Learn to understand what comes from God and what comes from man. Do this by praying to God and diligent reading of the Bible (Its a great help in this regard to take help of the Holy Spirit on this).

Prayer points for 2016 (Second Quarter – fight back)

Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple. Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And leaping up he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and recognized him as the one who sat at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, asking for alms. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. (Acts of the Apostles 3:1-10)

The Apostles Peter and John could help the lame beggar only when they spoke the word of healing over him, in the of name of Jesus Christ. The beggar was lame right from birth and every day until he decided to believe in the Word of God. He had to mentally fight back all of his past experiences. He didn’t even bother that how will be able to get the sympathy of people once he is healed so that they give him alms. All he wanted was his healing. So by faith in the Word of God he received his healing.

Are you willing to fight back everything that is preventing you from achieving everything good in your life by the grace of God?

If yes, then the following prayer points are indeed for you.

  • That all heretics and false prophets are named and shamed, so that the people are not misled into sin.
  • That the angels of God interrupt the plans of the Evil One, in the lives of those who active preach the Gospel.
  • That all those who profess the Christian faith stop fighting each other and recognize all false man made divisions which prevent them from loving and respecting one another.
  • I pray that all religious leaders who instigate their denominations to feel superior against other denominations are exposed for their sins of pride and malice, which go against the tenets of the Bible. May their followers realize that they are being used and misled to false promote the superiority of their denomination though the Bible tells us to be humble.
  • I pray that the coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ is never delayed but he comes soon enough to lead all Christians on earth and break away all divisions. I asked all this in the name of Jesus, through the intercession of Holy Spirit for the glory of the Lord God. Amen.

The bride is NOT the head of the Church

The Bride knows less that she thinks she does.  And many times, when things are said in the name of the Groom, it’s really just the Bride speaking.  The more the Bride speaks, the harder it is to hear the Groom. Currently there are several thousands of Christian books which simply contain the Bride’s thoughts, & it’s hard to wade through them all to find what the Groom is speaking.  When the Groom does speak, few of us realize it, especially the person it was spoken through. (Robert Brownell)

There are people in the Church who have chosen to ignore the fact that the bride is NOT the head of the Church. These falsely assume that they can put anything and everything in the written Word of God to a vote and then make the choice of the majority as a replacement for what the Bible says. If you are part of such church groups then for the sake of your own soul and your family leave such a group right away. Don’t care as to who in your church group gets offended. It’s better to please God than to please the people.

Now you might ask ‘who is the head of the Church?’. Well if you read the first chapter of Colossians, it’s abundantly clear that Christ Jesus is the head of the Church. Let me directly give you the key verses below:

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. (Colossians 1:15-18)

So with the above verses it is even more clear that the body of Christ also called the church, which is referred to as the bride of Christ is NOT the head of the Church.

Jesus the Lamb of God is coming for his Bride the Church. So to be a part of the Church means you are to concern yourself with purity and loyalty to the Lord God.

Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” (Revelation 19:7-9)

Now you may have a preacher who encourages you with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Also, in your local church you might have elders and maybe a structured hierarchy too. I mean absolutely no disrespect to them at all but you must hold on to the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ is still greater than them no matter how good they are. They are just the friends of Christ and the ministers of Christ but not Christ himself.

With that being said, no one and I mean no one in the Church at any given time and place is legally nor spiritually allowed to override nor circumvent the Word of God. Anyone who forces the local churches to say no to even a single bit of the Holy Scripture is to be opposed and not to be accepted as God’s messenger. Anyone in the church who tries to take a vote on getting rid of the principles, wisdom, laws and prophecies mentioned in the Bible which is mandated for you to follow, is not from the Lord God and is in fact a worker of temptation. Any person who tries to put his teachings and rules above the Word of God or even tries to make them equal to the Word of God is not worthy of your time, money and efforts. Read the Bible and pray to the Holy Spirit for counsel instead.

Do not listen nor accept the stupidity of those who tempt you to let go of even one little thing of God’s will for you. Jesus has put a very strong warning to those who will try to tempt the children of God as mentioned in the below verses:

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:1-6)

And he said to his disciples, “Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. (Luke 17:1-2)
