Kabbalah witchcraft and End time deception

Kabbalah witchcraft and End time deception

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light(2 Corinthians 11:14)

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools(Romans 1:22-23)

and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil(Genesis 3:5)


One of the current deception of the devil is the new age Kabbalah witchcraft that is being disguised by the devil to deceive the saints.

New Age , the pathway to Paradise
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6160041888120783114&q=The+New+Age+Pathway


This time the devil is using intellectuals to sell this deception. It is the same Genesis lie of the devil ‘you are gods’ , you can change your destiny , you can control your life. This was a lie then and is a lie now. Our dependability is on the lord Jesus Christ not repackaged witchcraft. The bible says that we are worms but none the less, we shall thresh mountains and turn hills into chaff(Isaiah 41:15).The foolishness of our God is wise than men and the weaknesses of our God is stronger than men(1 Corinthians 1:25).

History of the papacy , heresies of Rome , scandals of the papacy

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5 )


There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death (Proverbs 16:25)


7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Matthew 15:7-9)


14Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:4)


..for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God(Luke 16:15)

CATHOLIC DECEPTION:IDOL WORSHIP IN UGANDA

Abraham Odeke
BBC News, Osia, eastern Uganda

Friday, 15 December 2006,

Rumours that minor ailments and bad habits can be cured after kissing a giant cross atop a high hill in eastern Uganda has Catholic pilgrims flocking to the area.

The giant cross cost more than $4,000 to construct
The new 40-foot cross dominates the rural skyline across Tororo district - even at night it is visible for miles around as it is lit up with huge yellow lights, powered by solar panels.
Since its completion in April, more and more people join the pilgrimage up the hill which takes place on the first Friday of each month.
Most wear canvas shoes for the tough climb and slowly make their way up the path, while singing hymns, their rosary beads dangling around their necks.
At the top they kiss the cross, pray - some in a special night-long session - before preparing for the three-kilometre descent.
"I had been having sleepless nights from the evil spirits in my house," says Margret Atyang, a widow who has made the pilgrimage.
"But right from the time I began going to the top of the hill to pray under the big cross, the evil spirits disappeared from my house.
"Now I spend the nights like any other normal person. This means that Jesus is present on the hill."
Herbal healing
In fact, the area has been rechristened the Hill of Salvation by Father Mathew, an Indian priest who came up with the idea of building the towering concrete cross.

Statues decorate part of the journey up the hill
"The Hill of Salvation is where Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross. Our Christians now appreciate the fact that they can come and hold special prayers on this small mountain," he says.
His colleague Father Sebastian Nirapel explains that in all religions shrines tend to be built in the highest of places.
"For example, in the Bible's Old Testament, God comes to speak to Moses at the top of a mountain," he says.
And the hill on which Osia village nestles has always been associated with the power of healing.
Its original name was Osukuru, which means a place where people collect medicinal and rare herbs for use in local remedies.
Cement bags
The cross has cost the village's Catholic Parish about $4,350, which it raised from well-wishers abroad.


Paul Ongemi, who organised its construction, said it took 58 bags of cement and 20 workers to erect it.
The Catholic fathers say the cash donations given by pilgrims to the site will assist the poor communities in the Archdiocese of Tororo.
Efforts have also been made to ensure that the entire pilgrimage is a spiritual experience.
On the lower reaches of the climb, pilgrims go through a pass decorated with beautiful statues and stone paintings honouring saints, angels and the Virgin Mary.
Beyond that the Stations of the Cross - a series of 14 paintings which depict Jesus' journey to his crucifixion - have been conspicuously laid out.
At the foot of the hill a large cave, where villagers say foxes and hyenas used to seek sanctuary, has been transformed to resemble Jesus' burial place.
And as Tororo district's main road passes nearby, linking the region to the capital, Kampala, the Hill of Salvation and its concrete cross promises to become an even bigger tourist destination.

THE LIE EVERY BIOLOGICAL JEW SHOULD KNOW?

THE LIE EVERY BIOLOGICAL JEW SHOULD KNOW?


And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham(Mathew 3.9)


For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God(Romans 10:3)


How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?(Romans 10:14)


The bitter truth: Judaism is a cult?

Two thousand years since the resurrection and glorious ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ , thousands of biological Jews have passed from this world to eternity. Many of these biological Jews have passed into eternity after rejecting Christ .The bitter truth is that they ended up in hell. Many Jews are still stuck in Judaism and I believe some are atheists and agnostics however, It is so surprising that Christians do not even think that it is necessary to preach the gospel to these lost children of God.


So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.(Ezekiel 33:7-9)

Christians are so afraid of warning Christians about the Cult called Judaism. A Cult is a any faith that does not lead to heaven. The specific Christian definition of a cult is a religious group that denies one or more of the fundamentals of Biblical truth. Or, in more simple terms, a cult is a group that teaches something that will cause a person to not be saved if they believe it.

Definition of a cult?

http://www.gotquestions.org/cult-definition.html

CULTS
http://www.jesus-is-lord.com/cults.htm

CARM’S LIST OF CULTS

http://www.carm.org/cults/cultlist.htm

IS JUDAISM A CULT?
http://www.beingjewish.com/family/nocult.html

We are so afraid of telling the Jews that Judaism will not save them. We are so afraid of being branded anti-Semitic because of talking against ‘God’s chosen’ people. The word of God says categorically that Jesus is the way the truth and life and no one comes to the father except through him(John 14:6).All those who practice Judaism, atheism and agnosticism will go to hell. There is no heaven for them. The remnant should not be afraid of saying this.

a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.(Galatians 2:16)

Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.(Romans 3:20).

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree(Galatians 3:13)

WE MUST DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN BIOLOGICAL JEWS(Natural Israel) AND SPIRITUAL JEWS(SPIRUTAL Israel)

For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God(Romans 2:28-29)


I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:(Roman 9:1-3)

And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book(Exous 32:31-33)


Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved(Romans 10:1)


But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people (Romans 10:21)



Romans 11:20 states that the biological Jews (original olive tree branches) were cut off because of unbelief and wild olive tree branches (spiritual Jews justified by faith in Jesus Christ were grafted in because of faith). Therefore on the branch Israel stand spiritual Jews (born again saints ) who have put their faith in Jesus Christ. Are some of these spiritual Jews biological Jews as well? Certainly yes. Has God cast way his people God forbid. Even Gentiles like my self should be terribly afraid because it is written:

Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee(Romans 11:18-19)

Do the blessings of Abraham still apply to biological Jews?

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise(Galatians 24:29)

Pastor John Hagee believes that the promise of Genesis 12:3 regarding the Jewish people and the nation of Israel, is an eternal covenant between God and the seed of Abraham to which God is faithful(http://www.jhm.org/beliefs.asp).However( Galatians 3:29) categorically states that the seed of Abraham are longer biological Jews but spiritual Jews. Blind pastors like Hagee have often applauded Israel’s attack of the palestines people not knowing that there might a remnant in Palestine. If the Jewish Soldiers(who may be Judaists, atheists or agnostics) kill Palestinian born again Christians (spiritual Jews), Who is under a curse for killing God’s people? In this case the Jewish soldiers of course. There are many Jewish billionaires however, We should not be bought into the deception that gain is godliness.

Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain.(1 Timothy 6:5)

The first shall be last (Mathew 19:30, 20:16)

The lord Jesus Christ gave a warning to the biological Jews and some of us who call our selves spiritual Jews or the remnant that the last shall be first. He warned us that publicans and harlots will go to the kingdom before us(Mathew 21:31).We must stand for the whole truth without any double standards. We must follow the historical Jesus not the TBN Jesus who had a big house and who put on designer clothes. We must die to self and the world. Whenever we speak the truth we shall not be loved by the world just like our lord Jesus Christ.


Did the historical Jesus own a big house? Did he wear designer clothes?

The Kingdom of Christ is not of this world.

My Kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36)

And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom(Luke 23:42)

Proponents of Christ’s literal millennial reign from Jerusalem rely on Rev 20: 3 as a defence. The kingdom of our lord Jesus Christ has never been and will never be of this world. Even the Jerusalem talked about in Zachariah 12 is a spiritual Jerusalem.

Why God’s Kingdom is not of this Word
If Christ’s kingdom is of this world, why does scripture cautions us about the following:

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever(1 John 2:15-17)

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God(James 4:4)

Apostle Peter thought that Christ’s Kingdom was of this world. The Lord Jesus Christ did not hesitate but to challenge this foolishness.

From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men(Mathew 16:21-23)


Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one…. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough…. When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him(Luke 22:36,38,49,50,51)
Mammon prosperity preachers are telling the saints to have dominion over the world, they think that Christian will take over the institutions of the world because these foolish blind guides think that Christ’s kingdom is this world.

If Christ will come back to reign in Jerusalem for 1000 literal years. Why is he coming back as a thief? He is coming back to judge the world. When he comes back there is no second chance for the Jews and anybody else to get saved.

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief(I Thessalonians 5:2-5)

The phrase …all Israel shall be saved(Romans 11:26) refers to the remnant(biological Jews) elected by grace(11:5).Every year biological Jews are passing from this life to eternity. The bitter truth is that all Jews who are dying now without Christ are going to hell(where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth). The remnant(spiritual Jews) should not be afraid to tell the biological Jews this bitter truth. The bible says there is no other way thorough which we can be saved.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved(Acts 4:12)


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.(John 3:17-18)

I’m I a replacement Theologian. Not at all. My argument is that there is nothing like placement and replacement on the vine (Jesus Christ).What actually exists is grafting and re-grafting according to the standard criterion ie faith in Jesus Christ. On the vine the saints standard in equal worth. None is superior to the other, in fact at the end of time, each will receive a penny.GOD IS NOT A RESPECTOR OF PERSONS.

So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?(Mathew 20:6-15)

Andrew Strom must Repent

Dear Saints, the most Serious deception of our time is,so called saints who present half truth,so called christian who desire to make God's word palatable, so called christians who like the sugar gospel, so called christians who have refused to completely separate themselves from the spiritual fornication with apostate christendom.I was on Andrew strom's revival forum but banned because of exposing darkness, because of telling Andrew to stop propagating man centred revival that he got from Finney.This forum mocks the lord Jesus by propagating a doctrineless revival.God is going to judge all the sepents and vipers on this forum.


Strom Urgues that the bible you use does not matter,he hates the truth that the devil is perveting God's word.

http://www.yesumulungi.com/Apologetics/Appologs49.htm


Below are critiques and warning to Andrew strom from other saints.


http://www.factnet.org/discus/messages/3/13897.html?1134847087

Andrew Strom is a devoted disciple of the dangerous teachings of Charles Finney. Here are a few excerpts and updates from a letter that I wrote to Andrew Strom a few weeks ago after reviewing a couple of his audio teachings. It’s a little long but if you have time, please read it. (He refused to reply. All he did was sign me up to his bogus email newsletter without my permission.) My comments touched on only a few of Andrew’s many unbiblical teachings and practices.

Dear Andrew,

I would be remiss in my duty and responsibility as a Christian not point out a couple of glaring inconsistencies in your audio teachings.

It is well noted by many Christian authors, one in particular that in Finney’s false theology, I quote:

”man is not a sinner by nature, the atonement is not a true payment for sin, justification by imputation is insulting to reason and morality, the new birth is simply the effect of successful techniques, and revival is a natural result of clever campaigns.”

All of this is error but the first four points are devastating foundational heresies. The very “revival” you seek is undermined by promoting a man (Finney) who teaches these dangerous views. Among other things, Finney is man-centered not Christ centered.

These issues are not a matter of secondary doctrines or personal preferences. In addition, you preach a number of things that you say have been confirmed by your experience, which I must say is a dangerous gauge indeed. Yet these teaching of yours are nowhere to be found in the Bible and therefore cannot be established by the Word of God, which is the only real gauge and final authority for all things related to faith and practice in the Christian life. Many of your teachings are in fact in direct conflict with the Bible. I understand well the excitement and emotions, feelings and goose bumps that can be generated through revivalism experiences. I was involved in this for about a year and half straight as a music leader in an extended South Chicago “revival” in the USA.

I unwittingly used to write and sing unscriptural songs like “Holy Spirit Come” without realizing how doctrinally off I was. Jesus said that He would never leave us or forsake us and the Bible teaches that Christians already have the Holy Spirit. Further, the Bible also teaches that we are temples of the Holy Spirit and that God’s Spirit no longer dwells in temples made by the hands of man. Yet I was desperately trying to create a musical atmosphere by which I could unwittingly “conjure” up the Holy Spirit so He would “fall” and manifest himself in tangible reality in churches made by the hands of men. That was more like witchcraft than Christianity and I have since repented of my heresy.

Obedience to God’s Word brings “revival” but it takes the power of God to bring men to such repentance. Clever techniques do not bring lasting results and usually do more harm than good. Finney himself admitted that he saw little lasting fruit from his revival crusades. This is likely the main reason he left his crusades and went on to try his hand as a pastor. Further, the fallout from Finney’s teachings have been traced directly as the forerunner of, or at very least a major contributor to the Purpose Driven / Church Growth Movement error and many other dangerous modern movements. This fact is also significant because Jesus said that you shall know them by their fruit.

You have some good and helpful ideas but a mixture of truth and error is a corruption. You seem to advocate a hyper-works mentality, a work harder, pray harder, be holier, repent again and again over and over, not believing you are saved theology. Be careful not to convert true Christians into goats (if that were possible) in your attempt to convert goats to sheep.

I plead with you and respectfully admonish you to stop promoting Finney and others like him and instead return (if you were ever there to begin with) to preaching and teaching the Word of God alone. Failure to do so will leave those under your care drowning in an endless man-centered quagmire of never being holy enough, never praying hard enough, never repenting enough and fearing that they are not good enough to be saved. (This heretical thinking denies Christ’s finished work at the cross and denies the utter sinfulness of man and instead requires man to first be “good enough” to be saved. But the Bible says that none are good, not one. And, of course no man can attain enough goodness to save himself otherwise Jesus died in vain.) It is well documented and even Finney admitted that many were burned out by what he taught. We simply do not see any teaching in the Word of God burning out the early church.

While we should all strive to be perfect as God is perfect, we cannot shift focus from Christ to revival or from having faith in God to having faith in our repentance or goodness or the results will be devastating. Preaching repentance without faith in Christ causes a shift from faith in Christ to faith in self and generates a dangerous false confidence that one not only can but must save their own soul. This is a devastating heresy.

Sincerely and In His Service,

Paul Howey

Nine lies in the Church

Andrew Strom says there are Nine Lies in the Church; Truth Watch agrees, but has he got the Right Answers?
Posted by: AdminGood on Sunday, June 13, 2004 - 09:38 PM


An itinerant evangelist and preacher, Andrew Strom [AS] has recently posted a document on his website listing what he calls 'nine lies’ afflicting today’s church. Truth Watch has reproduced Andrew’s nine lies because we are encouraged that some Charismatics and Pentecostals are aware that there is something amiss in many of their churches. Some of Andrew's points support the objectives and claims made by Truth Watch. We agree with much of the criticism that AS offers regarding the state of the church. Sadly though, AS ends up looking in the wrong places for solutions.

[AS] “It is a sad fact that today's church is deceiving itself in some very crucial areas. Below are some plain facts that may shock a few people”:

[TW] Andrew’s [AS] opening statement is correct and accords with the premises contained in both our long and short declarations. More and more people appear to be recognising that there are some major problems in the evangelical church.

[AS] 1. "Ask Jesus into our heart" is not in the Bible. Neither is "Give your heart to the Lord", or repeating a "sinner's prayer". These practices do not exist in Scripture at all. The subject of salvation is the most important subject in the Bible and we are being lied to about it. These doctrines are a total fabrication. They were invented to make salvation "quick and convenient" Many church members today who are relying on these things are clearly not 'saved' at all”.

[TW] AS is quite correct. This disturbing phenomenon has been apparent for a long time. A watered down gospel is ‘another gospel’ and is forbidden by Paul (Galatians 1:6-10). Because so many people are sold ‘cheap grace’ there are probably many in the church who are not really saved, many of whom leave. The church has suffered from this problem ever since Finney introduced such easy-believism ideas and techniques 150 years ago. Ray Comfort has also correctly identified that claims concerning 'decisions' at many evangelistic events are misinterpreted as genuine conversion. This results in inflated figures that are used to support such techniques. True Biblical evangelism includes an emphasis on the sinful nature, God's holiness and repentance, not just love and grace.

[AS] 2. “Church buildings do not exist in the Bible. They were invented around 200-300 AD, when the church was in serious decline. Only a backslidden church could fall so far away from the simplicity of the early church. Church buildings are anti-New Testament, and bring with them a host of problems and traditions. It was basically when the church fell into the hands of Rome that this concept of the "cathedral" really took over. And we are still spending millions on these monuments today”.

[TW] While we are opposed to unwarranted and lavish expenditure on buildings, especially if the cause of the gospel is likely to suffer, the fact is that Scripture doesn't address the issue of owning property. AS’s point is therefore made rather more strongly than needed.

His argument also misses an important point: for the first 200 years the churches could not own property freely as a persecuted and illegal sect. Even in the NT it is clear that the early church was open to meeting in public buildings (eg: Acts 19:8-10). It is interesting that as soon as they were permitted to do so many churches did buy or build their own facilities - implying there was no inherent opposition to ownership per se. Churches should be free to follow their consciences in this area, but should be open to a challenge based on a claim of unwise stewardship. This claim could be levelled at many churches today who spend a great deal of money on buildings at the expense of their willingness or ability to learn correct doctrine and spread the right gospel.

[AS] 3. “The ‘one pastor runs everything’ model is totally unscriptural. Far from running everything, in the book of Acts we find the word "pastor" NOT EVEN USED ONCE. (The early church did have strong leaders and elders. But it was never a "one man band" like we see today. And never was it so "controlling" either)”.

[TW] We are not sure what he implies when he says the word pastor is never used in Acts. It is used in Ephesians. But his basic premise is quite correct. Many church leaders assume they have some sort of divine right to rule. They become ‘nicolaitans’ (‘heavy shepherding’ – Revelation 2:6) – those who like to exert power over the people, often leading them into error in the process. A pastor’s proper role is that of the shepherd (closely associated with teaching) equipping the people to be mature and active in the faith (eg: Ephesians 4:11-16). The problem is not pastors per se, but rather pastors who abuse their authority and role and refuse to bow to the Scriptural standards for shepherding a church.

[AS] 4. "Tithing" is not a New Testament practice at all. And it is being shamefully abused by today's preachers. In the New Testament we are told to give cheerfully – whatever we purpose in our hearts to give. Telling people that they MUST give 10% to the church or they are "robbing God" is totally sick - and a money-grubbing way of twisting Scripture. There is no evidence that the apostles EVER preached 'tithing' to New Testament believers. It was clearly regarded as an Old Testament practice”.

[TW] AS’s makes his point rather simplistically but he is correct. Tithing at most establishes a guideline for voluntary NT giving but it is not mandatory. Sadly, many churches make tithing an article of faith. Nicolaitan pastors are often associated with a heavy emphasis on tithing. Some use money gathered in this way to support a lavish lifestyle and/or they waste it on foolhardy ventures.

[AS] 5. “The words "prosper" or 'prosperity' was NEVER used by Jesus at all - and only exist a couple of times in the entire New Testament. Yet greedy preachers have built whole kingdoms upon them. The words - "sell what you have and give to the poor" and "deceitfulness of riches" and "you cannot serve God and mammom" and "woe to you that are rich" were DEFINITELY used by Jesus and the apostles. But we don't hear these things preached too much, do we?”

[TW] We have made a feature of decrying the so called ‘faith-prosperity gospel’. It is a shameful deceit that will not go unpunished. It brings the Word of God and the witness of true Christians unjustifiably into disrepute (see 2 Peter 2:17-19). AS is quite right. Nicolaitanism, the false tithing message and faith-prosperity are often associated.

[AS] 6. “There were no Bible Colleges, Seminaries or degrees in the New Testament. The only people who seemed to have "Bible Schools" were the Scribes and Pharisees! The apostles were simple fishermen and tax collectors. It is likely that a number of them could not even read or write. What was their "qualification" for being in the ministry? Simply that they had SPENT A LOT OF TIME WITH JESUS. The fact that people expect a "professional clergy" today with degrees from Bible College has helped to make the church sicker and more unscriptural than ever. Simple humble people with a calling from God often cannot get to minister because they do not have a "piece of paper" to make them 'qualified'.-Yet another disaster for the church.”

[TW] While biblical scholarship is not wrong per se it is true that an over-emphasis on theological studies, as the main criteria for pastorship, is wrong. It is wrong because it is dangerous. A person’s gifting and calling for leadership and teaching comes from God, not a theological college. However, it does not follow that formal theological training is inherently wrong.

It makes sense for a group of churches to pool pastoral training expertise and resources - but any such institutions or arrangements should be orientated to serving the churches and training pastors as a priority. Pastors and elders should emerge from within the church, not from seminaries. A danger here is to overreact and deny the need for proper training - leading to poorly taught leaders who are weak in the Word and vulnerable to deception and sin.

[AS] 7. “There is almost no evidence whatsoever that the early church had their "main meeting" on a Sunday. They gathered together 'from house to house' virtually every day! There were no church buildings. They did not dress up and "go to church". There were no denominations. There were no separate groups with different 'labels'. They lived their lives together - all the Christians in the local area. Love and fellowship and 'koinonia' were as natural to them as breathing. And the apostles in Jerusalem preached every day at huge open-air gatherings. -Not "hidden away" inside four walls. This was truly a "street church" in every way.”

[TW] AS is just plain wrong on this point. Christians may have met everyday in the very first days, but they also shared all in common (Acts 2:44-46). Most Christians don't see this early post-Pentecost situation as normative for today (does Andrew believe we should share everything?). It is clear that the later regular practice of NT churches was to meet regularly once a week for public worship on the 1st day (Sunday)/"Lord's Day" (eg: Acts 20:6-7; 1 Corinthians 16:1-3 cf Revelation 1:10).

Early historical examples of Sunday worship:
• AS should also refer to the Diadache (written sometime between 70-120AD - believed by most scholars to be the earliest church document outside the NT)
http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/didache.html
14:1 But every Lord's day gather yourselves together, and break bread, and give thanksgiving after having confessed your transgressions, that your sacrifice may be pure
(Chapter 11 shows they already had problems with many false prophets!)
• Sunday worship in Epistle of Ignatius to the Magnesians (c115AD) Chapter IX
http://www.ccel.org/fathers2/ANF-01/anf01-17.htm#P1504_264385
If, therefore, those who were brought up in the ancient order of things have come to the possession of a new hope, no longer observing the Sabbath, but living in the observance of the Lord's Day, on which also our life has sprung up again by Him and by His death
• Sunday worship in Epistle of Barnabas (c100AD) Chapter XV(15)
http://www.ccel.org/fathers2/ANF-01/anf01-41.htm
Ye perceive how He speaks: Your present Sabbaths are not acceptable to Me, but that is which I have made, [namely this, ] when, giving rest to all things, I shall make a beginning of the eighth day, that is, a beginning of another world. Wherefore, also, we keep the eighth day with joyfulness, the day also on which Jesus rose again from the dead and when He had manifested Himself, He ascended into the heavens.
We could give many other examples, and this all 300 years before Constantine made Sunday 'official' (but he was only recognising the actual practice of the churches).

AS rightly points out that there were no denominations in the NT. However, there were hardly the numbers to allow this or time for many errors to arise in a coherent manner. Unfortunately today denominations are a necessary evil if Christians are to worship in conscience freely yet still recognise each other as Christians. To force us all into one church necessarily leads to ecumenical 'control-from-the-top' or doctrinal compromise - the very things Andrew opposes!

A better solution to these percieved issues is not to abolish Lord's Day worship, but to promote a consistent church life through the week and to seek unity based on a common committment to the Truth. [For more on this issue see our article on church unity]

[AS] 8. “The idea that you can replace the moving of the Holy Spirit with programs, programs and more programs just shows how low we have sunk. Man-made programs are everywhere today. The early church had much more of God and much less of 'man'.”

[TW] AS fails to say that the Spirit speaks through the Word, or that we need to return to the Word. Hence he leaves the door open to people having "words" claimed to be of the Spirit. Such "words" are often used to justify unbiblical practices. This may be AS’s achilles heel. He has talked of going to set up a ministry in Kansas City, USA. If this means he plans to work with the so called Kansas City prophets it suggests AS’s doctrine in regard to the Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit is flawed. [For further information read our letter to the pastor of the Upper Hutt City Fellowship concerning Rick Joyner]

[AS] 9. We preach a 'humanistic' Jesus today. - A Jesus who exists mainly for our own "happiness". A Santa Claus who wants to rain down continual blessings upon us. A God of grace and mercy without judgement, righteousness or truth. Our gross misrepresentation of who Jesus really is, is one of the most serious offences of the modern church. Today's church seems to worship a "plastic" Jesus - one that she has made in her own image. What an offence to God.

A lot of preachers are well aware that there is something very wrong with the church today. They know there is little 'fear of the Lord'. They know there is no deep repentance or deep moving of the Holy Spirit. They know that it is just the same old "game" being played every week. A lot of them are very aware of this. But they will not do anything about it. They will not rock the boat. And they will "squash" anyone who comes along trying to do something. They do not want a real "shaking". There is too much to lose. They have their careers and their little 'kingdoms' at stake. This is the real truth of the matter. This is where the rubber truly meets the road.

That is why God is about to bring "Great Reformation". He will not put up with these 'hirelings' any longer. He will not have them as leaders over His people. A lot of them are about to "lose their heads". They will never lead God's people again. This is what true 'Reformation' is all about. It is the process of replacing the old leadership and the old lies. -It is David taking over from 'Saul'.

There is a 'New Wineskin' coming. In fact it is upon us. There is a new leadership arising - many of them trained in the 'wilderness' for such a time as this. The hour is now here. LET THE NEW LEADERS ARISE! The sad fact is that today's church has sunk so low that it is almost a matter of people needing to be RESCUED OUT OF HER. I never thought I would say something as radical as that, but it is the truth.

The entire church is living a lie. Many inside her are told continuously that they are "OK" - that they are saved and headed for heaven. Nothing could be further from the truth. Multitudes of them are headed directly for hell. The systemized LYING that is going on has deceived the leaders and the people alike. It is the blind leading the blind. We need to contend for these people - desperately. Much of the church is "lost". They are mired in deception - an entire system of deception.”

[TW] Again, AS is generally right in his initial observations here, but his solutions badly miss the point. A true reformation only comes about through a faithful and repentant/prayerful return to the priority of the Word. Only as the church reforms in light of the Scriptures and becomes more faithful in proclaiming the gospel - can we regain hope of a genuine revival. Andrew’s over-emphasis on a supernaturally restored leadership is putting the cart before the horse. Godly leadership will only come from a return to the supremacy and priority of the Word and its associated truth. AS’s exaggerated view of the Spirit has distracted him. He needs to remember that the Holy Spirit comes to lead us into all truth, hence TW’s insistence on a return to a correct understanding of God’s Word.


Truth Watch concluding commentThe essense of some of Andrew Strom’s criticisms of the contemprary church scene in New Zealand are accurate and insightful, but his solutions are wholly inadequate. This is because he is guided by experience and continuing revelations rather than a commitment to Scripture Alone. He fails to see that it is this very openness to new experiences and revelations that has played a major part in opening the church to the errors he sees. Andrew has not convinced us that he is fully established on the rock of God's Word. If he is looking for a ‘new move of the Spirit’ to restore the church and remove these errors, he is sadly mistaken and in danger of being misled as so many in the Charismatic-Pentecostal community have been. Our actions must be founded on what we know to be true from God’s Word, before we rely on what we believe we think we are hearing from somewhere else.

IN DEFENCE OF THE KJV
Every Remnant should be well versed with the bible controversy. There are hundred of bible versions here. The KJV is the only genuine bible. The others are counterfeits of the devil. The verses show below show how the counterfeits are trying to counterfeit God’s world.


In Daniel 3:25 The lord Jesus Christ is called son of gods

In 2 Samuel 21:19 the bibles say that Elhanan killed Goliath yet in 1 Samuel 17 it is stated that David killed Goliath. Now which is which?

The catholic church has infiltrated the education system in Africa such that even university graduates are ignorant about the reformation, inquisition and dark ages. With this kind of ignorance Christians will easily be deceived by catholic ecumenism towards unity of all faiths.

Tithing debate

Tithing debate
http://www.tithingdebate.com

Are Christians to Tithe or Give?

Are Christians to Tithe or Give?
By Kato Mivule
July 1, 2006

Tithing part and parcel of the Mosaic Law…
>>First we have to take a look at ALL scriptures relating to the Tithe from the Old Testament to the New Testament…

>>We find that Tithing was part of the Law and was supposed to be done according to the stringent rules and procedures in executing the Mosaic Law…

>>For most part I will let the Scriptures speak for themselves and will add in a point here and there…
>>The scriptures should be enough to put this issue to rest…

>>We see the Tithe being paid first by Abraham to Melchizedek…interestingly before the institution of the Mosaic Law…then institutionalized through Moses.

>>Some have argued that since the Tithe was there before Moses as practiced by Abraham, then it should remain and be practiced by Christians today since Abraham before the Mosaic Law practiced it.

>>However, such arguments and line of thinking are just a ‘picking and choosing’ from Scripture what fits the establishment of the Christian Religious Circles. One should note that Abraham practiced Circumcision before the Law of Moses and therefore if the pushers of the Tithe Doctrine desire to keep all that Abraham did to attain Justification from The Lord, then they should also circumcise…

Genesis 14:20
And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

>>Jacob vows a tenth of all his property to God…again interestingly before the institution of the Mosaic Law…

Genesis 28:20-22
And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, (21) So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: (22) And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

>>We see the Mosaic laws instituting the Tithe…
>>This should be enough for all the Tithe preachers that the Tithe was one of the Laws instituted through Moses…

>>Some Tithing preachers have taught lies that Tithing is one of the Mosaic Laws we must keep and do even under Grace in Christ Jesus…

Leviticus 27:31
And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.

Numbers 18:24
But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.

Numbers 18:26
Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.

Numbers 18:28
Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the LORD of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye shall give thereof the LORD'S heave offering to Aaron the priest.

Deuteronomy 12:6
And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:

Deuteronomy 12:11
Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:

Deuteronomy 26:12
When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

>>Tithes brought and stored in the TEMPLE…
>>Tithes were always brought to the Temple of God – House of God
>>One now has to ask themselves, who is the Temple of God today under the Jesus Christ Covenant?

>>Are we not the Temples of The Holy Spirit?
>>Are we not Royal Priesthood before our Lord Jesus Christ in the New Covenant – New Testament?

>>Is it that the Pastor and his Church the Temple of The Holy Spirit today?
>>So, clearly the concept does not hold in the New Testament, since every Temple of the Holy Spirit should receive the Tithe by the Royal Priest (Christian) who happens to be a Temple of The Holy Spirit…

>>Should the Christians who happen to be Priests and Temples of The Holy Spirit give the Tithe to themselves or choose a leader called a Pastor and give the Tithe to him? Is this the right way to fulfill the Law of Tithing according to Moses' strict Law?

>>The truth of the matter is that NO one in Christendom today gives Tithes according to the rules set by Moses in the Old Testament Law... I challenge any Pastor or Christian that they do so...as far as I know it NONE does so...

>>If justification is by the Law then fulfill the WHOLE Law and not just pieces of it...

>>Jesus Christ taught GIVING and especially to the poor, the Apostles Taught giving too…

>>That is why the believers in the early church in the book of Acts had no ownership of their property – it all belonged to Jesus Christ 100% and they brought all they had and laid it at the feet of the Apostles and they gave to each according to their need and there was none who lacked…this sadly is not the case in Christendom today…

2 Chronicles 31:11-12
Then Hezekiah commanded to prepare chambers in the house of the LORD; and they prepared them, (12) And brought in the offerings and the tithes and the dedicated things faithfully: over which Cononiah the Levite was ruler, and Shimei his brother was the next.

Nehemiah 10:37
And that we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground unto the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.

Nehemiah 10:38
And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house.

Nehemiah 12:44
And at that time were some appointed over the chambers for the treasures, for the offerings, for the firstfruits, and for the tithes, to gather into them out of the fields of the cities the portions of the law for the priests and Levites: for Judah rejoiced for the priests and for the Levites that waited.

Nehemiah 13:5
And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests.


>>The Lord Rebukes Idolaters who give Tithes...
Amos 4:4
Come to Bethel, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years:

>>Amazingly many in Christendom are given over to covetousness, materialism and the prosperity message…this the Bible calls Idolatry…so we have ‘Christian’ idolaters busy giving tithes…adding an abomination on top of their covetous sins…

>>The Lord rebukes those who refuse to be givers – the greedy...
>>The Lord rebukes those who broke the Law and robbed the tithe...
>>Today it would be those who reject The Lord's command to surrender 100% of what they have to Jesus Christ and care for the needs of those in the Body of Christ...

>>Today this would be a rejection of the stewardship ministry The Lord Jesus Christ has given to His Body...

>>Christians today pride in Tithing but with motivation to get more rich and more blessings and as they say “to get to another Level”…yet many poor are in the same churches and communities as the Pastors and Christians claim 90 percent lordship over their property and riches…for Jesus Christ is not Lord over such “Christians” and therefore they are guilty of robbing Jesus Christ…

Malachi 3:8
Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

Malachi 3:10
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

>>Pharisees pride in tithing...
>>Pharisees were known for their pride in tithes...they justified themselves because they tithed even the smallest of things...

>>Is it surprising that today’s Pharisees also pride themselves as being big tithers and as obtaining financial blessings and status of supremacy through tithing? Tithing combined with the Prosperity Doctrine have only fostered Class creation in Christendom especially with the establishment of the Elite Class in Christianity…

Luke 18:12
I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

>>Jesus Christ, the First Fruits before God...
Hebrews 7:1-3
(1) For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
(2) To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
(3) Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

Hebrews 7:4-11
(4) Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
(5) And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
(6) But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
(7) And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.
(8) And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
(9) And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
(10) For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.
(11) If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

>>Priesthood changed and therefore necessity to change the law...
>>Jesus Christ The High Priest who continues forever...
>>No Perfection came by The Law
>>Jesus Christ, The High Priest who continues forever fulfilled the Law…

Hebrews 7:12-19
(12) For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
(13) For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
(14) For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
(15) And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
(16) Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
(17) For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
(18) For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
(19) For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

>>Jesus Christ a Surety of a better testament…
>>Who needeth not daily, as those high priests to offer up sacrifice…

Hebrews 7:20-28
(20) And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
(21) (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)
(22) By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
(23) And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
(24) But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
(25) Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
(26) For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
(27) Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
(28) For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

>>No Longer Under The Law…
>>Tithing was part of the Mosaic Law…
>>Law fulfilled in Christ Jesus…

>>If you keep the Law then keep the WHOLE law, not just Tithing alone…keep Circumcision also and the Priestly Laws too since all are essential in the correct order of offering Tithes in the Old Testament…

>>All blessings we have including financial blessings can only come Through Christ Jesus…

>>It is through Jesus Christ that we obtain the blessings of Abraham…for it was Christ Jesus, The SEED spoken about in Galatians 3:14 – 15…

>>Gentiles and Jews alike ALL can ONLY receive and partake of the blessings of Abraham through Jesus Christ…any other ways are false!

Galatians 3:1-16
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? (2) This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

(3) Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (4) Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. (5) He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? (6) Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.

(7) Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. (8) And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. (9) So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. (10) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

(11) But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. (12) And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. (13) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: (14) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

(15) Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. (16) Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Justified by Faith in Christ Jesus…
>>The Mosaic Law does NOT justify us. Grace and Faith in Christ Jesus justify us…

>>Seeking to be justified by keeping the Tithing Law is of no use…it is similar to getting justified by keeping the Law of Circumcision…

>>Many use Tithing as a means to trap God into blessing them…
>>These Folks have to work hard by Tithing to their beloved Pastors and Churches in order to buy blessings and financial security from The Lord…

>>Such mentality is biblical and conjuring blessings using scripture by apostate churches today…

>>Christ Jesus purchased us with His precious Blood and ALL we have is His. 100% of what we own is not our but it belongs to Christ Jesus…

>>So, what ever The Lord requires of our property for His service is RIGHTLY so His…

>>Jesus Christ taught giving and giving to the poor…

>>It was this very reason that the Apostles in the Book of Acts brought ALL they had and laid it at the feet of the Apostles and gave to each according to their NEED and there was no one who lacked…

>>The Apostles knew that in Christ Jesus the Law of Tithing was fulfilled too and therefore ALL they had belonged to God 100% and they had NO OWNERSHIP bur shared together all that they had that no one lacked…

>>This does not mean that they became RICH as Prosperity Teachers teach today, they simply had their Needs met and none lacked but today with the teaching of Tithing in Churches this is not so but many lack and many are in need while a few own ALL things and this is blasphemy before God…

Galatians 3:24-29
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. (25) But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. (26) For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. (27) For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. (29) And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

>>Justified by the Law? Ye are fallen from Grace…
>>If you keep the Law Ye are fallen from Grace!
>>If you keep tithing, then KEEP the Whole Law…you are a debtor to the whole law…

>>Jesus Christ is of no effect to you if the Law justifies you…
>>If you count yourself justified by Tithing, Circumcision etc, then you are FALLEN From GRACE!

Galatians 5:1-4
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (2) Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. (3) For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. (4) Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.


>>The Law is fulfilled in the Love of Christ Jesus…
Galatians 5:13-14
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. (14) For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

>>It is this basis that the law is fulfilled, love, and The Love of Christ Jesus, not human love…

>>The Apostles in the book of Acts did not give because of Law but out of the Love of Jesus Christ…it is the Love of Jesus Christ working in us that will help us surrender ALL ownership to Christ Jesus and when we see a Brother in need or in lack, we shall give out of The Love of Jesus Christ thus fulfilling the Law…

>>All can testify today that this is not so in Apostate Christianity – the biggest pushers of the Tithing Doctrine…to these Apostate Christian preachers, Tithes keep their huge ministries going, they keep their so-called Christian TV going, tithes keep their pastors driving the best cars, buying Jet Planes, and purchasing Million dollar homes…anyone can simply turn on TBN and see the fruits of Tithing today…

>>Tithing teachings have only helped to foster GREED and Covetousness among the Prosperity apostate Christian movement and helped the Westernized Church hate with a passion all those who are poor…The Church has become a club of only the rich and affluent…people who can “make it to the next level”…this is a shame and blasphemy before God…

>>Jesus Christ Taught Giving and NOT Tithing
Matthew 5:42
(42) Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

Matthew 6:1-4
(1) Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
(2) Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
(3) But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
(4) That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Matthew 10:8
(8) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Luke 6:38
(38) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

>>Pharisees were very scrupulous in giving their Tithes…
>>But not out of love but to control their constituents…
>>Today, Tithing is a form of control by the Christian Religious Elites of our day…

Luke 11:37-42
(37) And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.
(38) And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.
(39) And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
(40) Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?
(41) But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.
(42) But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Luke 12:29-34
(29) And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
(30) For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
(31) But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
(32) Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
(33) Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
(34) For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Luke 21:1-4
(1) And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
(2) And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
(3) And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:
(4) For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

Luke 18:22-24
(22) Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
(23) And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.
(24) And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

Luke 19:8-9
(8) And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
(9) And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

Luke 18:10-14
(10) Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
(11) The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
(12) I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
(13) And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
(14) I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

>>The Apostles Taught Giving NOT Tithing…

>>This has been one of the most misused verses by the Prosperity Theologians and Preachers who claim that Christians should bring all their tithes and possessions and place them at the feet of the “Apostles”…

>>First and foremost we should note that The Apostles NEVER demanded or EVEN asked the believers to bring in the Tithes and possessions to their feet…The Christians were prompted by The Holy Spirit and also must have known that all what they possessed belonged 100% to Jesus Christ and their duty was to take care of each other’s needs…to show their love for one another in practice and as such be a witness and a testimony for Jesus Christ to the World as Jesus Christ Himself prayed in John 17. This was not about making the apostles rich and wealthy as some suppose today but taking care of the needs of each other in the Body…

>>It was not about creating an Elite Class of Prosperous Christians…it is a sad thing that this is happening today and the church is suffering from Elitism courtesy of today’s Prosperity Charlatans who love to be seen in their glamorous churches on TBN TV and other so-called Christian Media...

>>Much of the True Christian Church around the world is poor, and I mean very very poor…it is only the American Laodicean Church and those who love her doctrines around the world who enjoy friendship with the world and the material wealth…the result of this has been elitism in the body and division which certainly is proof that the Prosperity doctrine is of the flesh…

>>Secondly, the believers in the book of Acts gave to have the needs of the other Christians met as I have already noted above. Therefore we should not ever give to Charlatan Ministers who not only ignore the plight of the poor in their constituencies but also live lavishly and luxuriously with the believers meeting their bills in the name of Tithing and Prosperity…

>>This raises a question of who should we give to…true Christians should give to the poor of the earth…those Christians who continue giving and supporting Charlatan Ministries like TBN TV and their affiliates who preach a gospel of riches and greed, will one day have to give account for their actions in supporting and fostering false doctrines…

>>There are Christians I know of who will give huge sums of money to their Pastors and “Apostles” but will ignore their Christian neighbor who has no food and cannot pay rent…I have seen such evil among Christian Pastors who will drive a new BMW or SUV while their church members suffer want…this was never the reason behind giving in the book of Acts…

Acts 2:44-47
And all that believed were together, and had all things common; (45) And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. (46) And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, (47) Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

>>None lacked as they gave in the early church…today many lack as people give Tithes to their pastors and “apostles”…is this not a curse that cursed is he who keeps not the whole law?

Acts 4:33-37
(33) And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
(34) Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
(35) And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
(36) And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,
(37) Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

>>Judgment comes to church because of money…
>>Ananias and Sapphira judged because of unfaithfulness about money…
>>Judgment is coming to the Church because of being unfaithful about money…

>>The early church was not a communist church as some attest, in fact people remained with the right to property as we see Peter address Ananias but Ananias and his wife were found lying to the Holy Spirit and so do many Prosperity and Tithe preachers do today…

>>They claim that they are gaining riches to serve God and care for the poor yet they do the opposite…they engage in covetousness, greed, materialism and self indulgence…they engage in idolatry and use Giving and Tithing as a means to maintain their religious structures and worship of the Idol of Materialism…

>>Please stop giving to such charlatans…go give to the poor in the church and meet each other’s needs…

Acts 5:1-11
But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, (2) And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet. (3) But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?


(4) Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. (5) And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. (6) And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.


(7) And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. (8) And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. (9) Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.

(10) Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. (11) And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.

>>There was a great drought and the Christians gave…
Acts 11:27-30
(27) And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.
(28) And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.
(29) Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea:
(30) Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

>>The Apostle taught giving not Tithes…
Romans 12:5-9
(5) So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
(6) Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
(7) Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
(8) Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
(9) Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

>>Regularly, True Christians are to give…
1 Corinthians 16:1-4
(1) Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
(2) Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
(3) And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
(4) And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.

>>The Lord desires Equality among His people…not class-ism and Elitism…
>>Our giving should take care about the Need of each in the Body…
>>Today’s Elite Prosperity preachers care not about the NEED of their members but care about their own Greed…this ought not to be so…

2 Corinthians 8:8-17
(8) I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
(9) For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
(10) And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.


(11) Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
(12) For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
(13) For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:


(14) But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
(15) As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.

(16) But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you.
(17) For indeed he accepted the exhortation; but being more forward, of his own accord he went unto you.

>>True Christians give cheerfully, not out of compulsion but freely…
2 Corinthians 9:5-15
(5) Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not as of covetousness.
(6) But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.


(7) Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
(8) And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
(9) (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.


(10) Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
(11) Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.
(12) For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;

(13) Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;
(14) And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.
(15) Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

>>Give to those in Need...
Ephesians 4:28
Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

>>Command those who are Rich...not to trust in their riches...but give...
1 Timothy 6:17-19
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; (18) That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; (19) Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Curse From Tithing?
>>On the Contrary there seems to be a curse on ministries and Christians even though they continue to Tithe. All kinds of sin related to money have increased among Christian tithing communities. Greed, materialism, false doctrine of prosperity, elitism, class-ism, waste of resources on that which is useless like multi million dollar churches, love of the world, using worldly principles for Church growth, being conformed to the image of the world etc...all these vices show that instead of the desired blessing from Tithing, a curse seems to be in operation...

>>Conclusion
True Christians Give and not Tithe for 100% of their Belongings belong to Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords. True Christians are Stewards to what God has entrusted them and not owners…

>>Stop Tithing and begin giving to the poor and needy of this earth, beginning first with those in your household, fellowship, church, community etc…stop the nonsense of giving to charlatan ministers such as TBN and others…

>>Support those ministries that REALLY preach the Whole Counsel of God’s Word…those who won’t preach want you WANT to hear but what you NEED to hear…those who will challenge you to carry your Cross and follow JESUS CHRIST along that Narrow and DIFFICULT path…

In Christ Jesus
