My Pastors are worse than tax collectors says Jesus

There was a brother that had a vision of Heaven. He saw the Heavenly gates and drank of the river of Life. He walked on the streets of gold and even had a glimpse of the Throne room of God. But then he met the saviour face to face- the king of kings and the Lord of Lords.

The vision of Jesus was a glorious one. His face shone brightly with a radiance that could not be ignored. He took the brother by the hand and lead him into the throne room.

In the presence of the Almighty a lot of issues were discussed. The brother was opportuned to ask questions and to even share jokes with the Lord. No wonder the scriptures says: “in the presence of the Lord there is fullness of Joy.” He laughed as he learnt mysteries of the secrets of God. Then he noticed a sigh on the face of the Almighty. “My son, there is something that I need to share with you,” he said. I know that you have served me with all your might and strength. I know that you have given your all to please me to the best of your knowledge under difficult circumstances but there is something that I am not proud of that is happening in my name.”

The brother listened as the Lord spoke about the issue of money and offerings. He was told that the money was in no way brought before his feet in heaven and in the real sense he was not benefitting from what was happening. “They ask for money as if they see my face on daily basis. They hear my voice but still ignore my pleas. I have told them to be lenient with my children as regards collections and financial acquisition but they will not listen. Neither do they truly honour me with such.”

The Lord noted that he had gone to lengths on several occasions to test the faithfulness’ of some men of God. “There are those who have had similar visions to you and that have seen my face before. I have sent people to them whom they have ignored. They say that are collecting money to give it to the Almighty God. Do they really know who the Lord God Almighty is? These men of God employ the services of accountants to harrass youung pastors working in their ministry. If you ask me, they are no different than tax collectors employing the services of touts."

The brother sat bewildered as the Lord went on: “How many of these men of God will tell their members, or the pastors working for them, the truth behind the money they collect. Do they really build my kingdom with such? Are they really interested in building my temple? I have permitted them to take care of their needs and wants with such money but the truth is they are so greedy that they have ignored me.”

The Lord explained that the Hell many men of God talk about is one of their own creation. He noted that there are those, after experiencing the bliss of heaven they do everything to make it difficult for others to make it. “They want their members, minister and junior pastors to fear hell so much that they hardly believe that they can make heaven. They use all tactics they can to enrich themselves and scare to death those that trust in them. And worst of all, when they hear my cry they ignore me, speaking in strange languages of evil wisdom and lack of mercy. The truth is I did not send them!

“Do you know that it not as really difficult to make heaven as many men of God make my children to believe? In fact, there are many little children who see my face and enter heaven regularly but do not know how to explain it. I bring these men and women to experience a foretaste of glory divine so that they may help others make it easily. But do you know why they don’t tell the whole truth because of greed, selfishness and money."

He quoted where the bible states that the Lord is a spirit and those who worship him must do so in spirit and truth. “God, in spirit form, does not spend money. Money is only used on earth to take care of the requirements of men. Many of my children are cajoled, and tricked to part with their finances as if that is all the Kingdom of God is all about. The truth is that these spiritual leaders who collect money so frequently and often from their members are actually the beneficiaries of what they collect. They spend the money at their own discretion based on their whims and caprices. The truth is I did not send them!”

The brother was shocked.”I thought the money was for you,” he exclaimed to the Lord. I thought you take note of every penny given with a promise to pay back. At least that is what the bible says” he stated.

“Not quite”, The Lord answered sighing, indicating a heavy heart that he wanted to share with the world. “Yes I will repay with interest every penny anyone gives in my name but those responsible for collecting on my behalf seek, in many cases to outsmart them. “Look at your case for instance. You got to know me at a tender age. You embraced the gospel of giving and receiving willingly with much faith. But, the truth is many of those you directly or indirectly gave money to, who claimed to collect it on my behalf do not want me to bless you. They do not know the God of compassion, appreciation and goodness. They serve a God who does not believe in giving back what he receives. The truth is that I did not send them!

“The hidden secrets of many churches today is the problem” the Lord explained. Most of them, at the top level, operate like and indeed are secret cults. From one ministry to another they have codes and passwords which create confusion similar to what is found in secular secret societies. Some, after seeing my face and knowing who I am seek to play the role of God over the life of others. They try to get their subjects enter into wicked accords.

Though they want to play the role of God over the life of others they are not like the God of the bible but they use the bible to oppress, lie to and deceive. Some claim the ownership of, or play God over the life of other individuals, controlling them without mercy. They engage in telepathy and sign language telling those they seek to hold captive that they must not say or leak to the uninitiated all the information they are aware of. They make promises and break them, seeking pleasure as they encourage men to fight, harm and injure one another. They have little or no mercy though they claim to be holy.

“My word says that a labourer is worth his wages but left to them, such labourers must be initiated and operate by their endless codes and what they claim, are unspeakable secrets, after years of dedicated labour. My word says that do not muzzle the Ox that plows the field but they give restrictions, even when it is obvious there is abundance provided by others, for their subjects.”

“They encourage lies, hardship,greed, homelessness, marriage destruction and even hire assassins in the name of God, to execute their nefarious activities. They rely less and less on the bible, even though they claim to act in my name. Some don’t practise love and encourage people to live by creating fear. When you see a person who has worked so hard, especially at the top level in the church that they are trying to push out, deny his reward or make unhappy he most likely is a victim.”

The brother sat their motionless as he managed to mumble out a few words: “Then Lord, Please do something about it,” he whispered. “I have” was the reply. I have sent Jesus to them on several occasions. I have personally brought many before my throne, and aside, many have heard and recognised my voice. They want me to remain at distance, far off in heaven. They do not want me to come down and take control like never before and neither do they intend to stop collecting money on my behalf. It is so bad that some of those who give the money are not proud of what God generally stands for anymore. I do not blame such people. If only they could know the truth about what is really happening. And as regards the Leaders their selfishness, wickedness and desire to control others stinks to heaven. .

“But now I am sending you. I am equipping you like no other. I will ensure that you encounter many of them face to face and tell them the truth even in the presence of their subjects. Don’t worry about what to say or do because I have chosen you and will go ahead of you. I have raised a team across the world that will enhance your fulfilment of this assignment. I will provide you with the finances and in several cases enable you to take their ill-gotten wealth in my name. I will supply your needs in abundance. I Am that I Am. I Am the Almighty God and I have heard the cry of my people. I have given you the anointing of my prophets and will raise angels to work with you like never before. I have married you and I will not let them touch, hurt or get near to touching you in any way or form. Go and tell my children who are crying out like never before their leaders are not working for my kingdom- and the truth is I DID NOT SEND THEM!”
