The greatest deception taking place today is coming into our living rooms 24 hours a day. I know you have seen it too.
The false prophets of today selling the blessings of God and getting rich using the name of Jesus. These false prophets knows how to make you give your hard earned money, by using your emotions. To make you feel as though you need to plant a seed, so you can receive a harvest. But is that what the Bible really teaches?
These wolves in sheep's clothing, knows how to twist the scriptures to make people believe that is what God is telling them to do. And the people do it without verifying what these false ministers are saying with the scriptures.
These false teachers knows what to say to keep these people tuning in weekly on the TV, so they can continue to drain their followers bank accounts. They tickle their audience ears with receiving wealth using the method of non judgment teachings instead of confessing their sins to God.
See, the message of punishment for not repenting of their sins, will not bring in money. But teaching people how to get rich by giving money will.
What they are really teaching and offering their audience is things that will only parish. Not things that will last for eternity. Nothing about confessing their sins and getting right before God. That is the great deception.
They teach wealth instead of giving an alter call. This is known as the "Seeker Friendly" approach to bring in more followers so they can make even more money.
And people are running to these meetings in droves world wide. Jesus did say this would happen in the last days in Matthew 7: 13,14. He said, wide is the path that leads to destruction and many would find it. But only a few will find the narrow path that leads to heaven.
So the job of these false teachers is to blind their followers with the love of money and avoid the penalty of not repenting of their sins. They just use enough of the name of Jesus in their messages to deceive the people to make them think, what they are teaching is from the word of God. By twisting scriptures. That way they can keep the cash flow coming in, and the more people they deceive, the more money they will make.
It is so wrong that these ministers who almost beg for our money, to build million dollar mega church buildings. Instead of feeding the poor people and the homeless people, that are even in their own neighbor hoods. This is so wrong, do you really believe they care about our souls?
That money they spend to build mega church buildings could have clothed and fed 1000's of people. We need to pray for these ministers to be delivered from the spirit of greed. And start taking care of the poor people. That is what Jesus would do and told us all to do.
Jesus was tempted by Satan. Satan offered Jesus all the riches of this world and Jesus seen right through Satan's lies, and refused Satan's temptation. And I wounder why Jesus' followers today don't do the same?
I truly believe that if a neighbor or a friend who are struggling to buy food or pay their bills, is were we should tithe. Instead of giving to these greedy ministers. That I believe is what Jesus would do. I just can't see Jesus giving money to the prosperity teachers of His days, the Pharisees. Do you? Jesus would help the needy.
Follow the teachings of Jesus and not the teachings of men will save you from a lot of heart aches later. OK.
I don't want your money at all, I just want you to see the truth. And I pray that you won't fall into temptation and to run into the shadows of this world's system and gimmicks. And don't let these false teachers of today, take your hard earn money. By selling you a blessing from God. So they can fatten their wallets.
It is just like Jesus said it would be in the last days.
Jesus Loves You.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
