  • Hmmn. But how has the wealth of mega-pastors assisted the lives of their follows who are locked down in abject poverty and naked squalor?

    • Beverly Woods says:

      They teach the God’s principles on how to get out of poverty, in which Jesus paid the price for us against sin as well as poverty. Don’t come against them, learn from them. I am so glad, when my pastors, excel…..the anointing flows from the top. I would never go to a church with a broke preacher. If we as the Body of Christ are broke, how can we help those who are less fortunate than us.

      • atlbravosfan says:

        ‘ I would never go to a church with a broke preacher.’

        So I guess you wouldn’t have followed Jesus Christ, then. Pretty sure he wasn’t wealthy and didn’t own any possessions… as you put it, he was a ‘broke preacher.’

        • Kousa says:

          You make assumptions that Jesus didn’t own any wealth or possessions. No where in the bible does it say he was a broke preacher. I’m not taking any sides here. I’m just saying we don’t know if Jesus did not have wealth or possessions. In any event, wealth and possessions would not have mattered to him because he was on a mission to reveal the Kingdom of God.

          • Ruben Kvamme says:

            Well I slightly disagree there. It says nowhere in the bible verbatim “Jesus was a broke teacher” But Jesus does say this about himself.

            20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
            Mathew 8:20
            Although it’s fairly true that IF he would have had any wealth it would have not mattered the slightest to him.
            and also in regards to the rich man that came to Jesus: (Read Mark: 10:17-25) (not to mention Mathew 4, where Jesus clearly renounced everything this world had to offer)
            It seems to me to be clear, it’s not about being rich in this world, being rich in this world can be a snare and an obstacle to your life in Christ.
            It’s about being rich in the coming world.

            19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
            20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
            21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
            Mathew 6:19-21

            “If we as the Body of Christ are broke, how can we help those who are less fortunate than us.” It’s not necessarily about helping those less fortunate than us in Money, although of course, having money to give away is not a bad thing. It’s about following Jesus and being a christian in deeds and truth. (1 John. 3:18) and that your flesh in this world can be dead so that you might live in the coming, so that your life may be lead in the spirit. (Mathew 10:37-39 and Romans 8:1)
            Just because some might not be able to give money in this world, does not make them any smaller in the comming. Let’s just take a look at the poor widow

            41 Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites,[j] which make a quadrans. 43 So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; 44 for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.”
            Mark 12:41-44

            and lastly.

            7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
            1. sam 16:7

            After taking this in consideration, and knowing nothing in God’s word is contradicting, you may read 3. john 2.

          • christopher. says:

            Right on

          • Shan says:

            Read Matthew 8:20. Problem with you all is you are not reading Bible and just go and sit before these guys. They preach everything out of context.

        • Christian Lussambo says:

          Jesus? “broke preacher”? Come on! Let’s be serious and READ our bibles!

          2 Co 8:9 “For you know the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, that, though he was RICH, yet for our sakes he became poor, that you through his poverty might be RICH.” Don’t take Jesus’ humility for weakness. He became sin so that we could walk in his righteousness, he became poor so that we could walk in his prosperity. The problem with most christians, is their concept of prosperity. Jesus is the WEALTHIEST and HOLIEST preacher that ever existed. Period.

          • Glenn Peddie says:

            Jesus. Was rich because he is God. He gave up his attributes to come to earth a a poor man. To help us . To buy us back
            The Bible is so easy to understand

          • Merce4u says:

            Rich, you have this all wrong. Jesus became poor as in became like man. Its a spiritual reference. Not a material reference.

          • Michael Brown says:

            Jesus kingdom is not of this world, and so should those who are truly following Him, He was poor from the day He was born, up to the day He died. He is God and all things belongs to Him, those who truly living for and following Jesus is not of this world, will embrace poverty and persecution.

          • Lussambo, you are completely deceived and lying against the truth. 2 Cor. 8:9 is in no way speaking of earthly riches. You are a false prophet – —- False Leaders Today: These are the very “false prophets” we are so often warned about. They do not follow Jesus – who chose to divest Himself in this world – while these greedy wolves embellish themselves with lavish excess and “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3)

            Jesus did not come to make you rich in this fleeting world. Anyone preaching otherwise is a manifest wolf and enemy of Jesus Christ. Read Ps 49 and 1 Tim. 6 and Luke 12:15-21. In fact, the Son of God sternly warned against being rich in this fleeting world – which in most cases will prevent you from the true riches of Heaven in the next life (Mark 10:23-25).

        • Beverly Woods says:

          Jesus was only broke for three days. He took on your poverty, so that you could become rich. It’s not all money, it is abundance. You may not be able to handle riches….yet. And you won’t as long as you criticize others of the Bod of Christ, who has them.

          • Merce4u says:

            Beverly, you are confused. Its not about wealth nor abundance. Its about a relationship with Jesus Christ. Remember, the LOVE of money is the root to all evil. You seem to love wealth.

          • Beverly Woods says:

            No, I don’t love wealth. I love Jesus. And he loves me. And because, He loves me, he has given me unmerited favor to get wealth. So that I can establish His covenant here on the earth (Deut 8:18) The word for power is grace/unmerited favor. My grandmother use to say all the time “It takes money to run my business”. It takes money to get the gospel to the world. To pay for television time, etc. The money belongs to us…..I don’t love the money. The wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. I am the just. And like all of these ministers, we use the money to help people. Jesus is not poor anymore. He was only poor, when He took our sins, and poverty and diseases upon him. So that we could go free from them. I would ask you to open up your heart and allow God to flood you with marvelous light.
            Also, and all that name themselves Christians, should stop this incessant criticizing and condemning these ministers. Jesus said, that He left one commandment, that we would love one another, as He has loved us. He said that the world would know us through the love that we have with one another. If you and others like you, don’t want to be rich or prosperous (Abraham was prosperous in goods, and not spiritual prosperity, only….because you could see it)., do so for those who are in need – , to help us preach the gospel. Stop criticizing preachers for having planes…….cause Father has chariots of fire. One last thing……God said we are to be imitators of Christ…….well Christ is not poor, as a matter of fact, no one is poor in heaven. God is a God of abundance.
            This is all I have to say on the subject. Please stop sowing these horrible words against these preachers……because in doing so, you may be stopping someone from hearing the over-the-top good news. Have a blessed day.

          • Merce4u says:

            Beverly, nobody is condemning preachers. Get off you high horse. You seem to be listening to prosperity preaching and not the true gospel. You seem to think you are so good God has given you riches. It rains on the good and bad alike. What did Jesus tell the rich man? Have you sold all or given ALL to the poor? Beverly you are very misguided. You do a grave injustice to those seeking to know the Lord by preaching prosperity. God does not love you anymore than he does the homeless on the street. You made the comment…because he loves me, he has given me wealth. Your eyes are blind and your ears are deaf to what God truly says. You, my dear are teaching a false doctrine. one of earning favor with God. And, shame on you for pronouncing judgements on me….you have no idea of how much money I have.

          • Beverly Woods says:

            Thanks for what you told me. Because now I know that i am preaching the good news, whicch is the gospel.

          • Shan says:

            I agree with Merce4u. He humbled himself to take birth in the manger… Jesus goes on to say Son of Man has no place to sleep.. Bible says he is supported by respectable women. Read Acts chapter, it will say how to share the wealth within the community. Read deut, it will share how God laid out principles on land, property and slaves. If the above pastors flying in a private jet where as part of the world is starving for food. We call them as blessed?? If this is the God blesses, there is something wrong..

          • NEWSONG says:

            The bible tells us that we are to warn people against false preachers. Most of the TV evangelists are false teachers and false preachers. It seems that many people that attend churches very rarely read a bible. It’s sad.

      • Broilerroom says:

        Then the Apostles would not have been able to minister to you because most of them were broke, Paul had a tent maker ministry, Peter said to the poor man, silver and Gold I have not, Stand and walk, they depended mostly on the Lord and people in the cities were they traveled to support them. Only 2% of preachers are wealthy, there are churches all over the world that are struggling, Paul said that ministries that have a abundance should be helping the poorer ministries. Not making themselves rich. I have no problem with men of God being well off, but millions upon millions of dollars in the bank, that could be doing something for GOD. Most christians cannot send there children to christian schools because they are to expensive yet. Why do these guy build christian schools that teach christian kids and make cheap for so poor people can afford it. Do job training for christians and train them to start businesses as many christians are being fired from jobs because they don’t say yes to things like gay marriage. I know some of them do like TD Jakes, but honestly, how much is just too much. I want be able to educate my kids and get them started and what I have left after that I want to go to ministry

      • Walter King Jr. says:

        They assist the lives of their followers by teaching the Word of God
        that has freed them. Does not matter how poor you are. Raise your level
        of thinking and you can raise your level of being. Those who remain
        poor, do not have vision for change. ..AND these ministries do help the poor in other ways with food clothes and assistance finding jobs. Do the research and you will see. But nobody wants to talk about that.

      • Merce4u says:

        Shame on you Beverly. Rich has nothing to do with sharing the gospel which is what we are commanded to do.

        • Beverly Woods says:

          You can’t get the gospel to all the world,……if you are broke. If you want to be poor, have at it….enjoy it. I am the righteousness of God, my life is in Him….and as He is so am I in this world……and He is not broke, poor……and neither am I..
          Love to you

          • Merce4u says:

            Beverly, pride goes before a fall. Most missionaries are not rich. They are poor and yet they are called to share the gospel no matter what condition they are in. Good grief. You are embarrassing Christians everywhere.

          • Dean S says:

            Sounds like you doubt God’s power to move his Word without the help of money.

          • Beverly Woods says:

            I don’t doubt it. The Word of God says money is used to bless others. In Deuteronomy says the money is used for covenant purposes. Deuteronomy 8: 18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant…… Many of you will be upset, when you get to heaven, and see the vast riches. We are God’s children. He said I own cattle on a thousand hills. He said the gold is mine, the silver is mine. If you were a rich man, would your children have to be poor? Jesus said if you being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more your heavenly Father. To answer your question further Dean, we are in partnership with the Father. We are the ones to take His Word to the world. It takes money to get on tv, and satelites. And I might add, we do it all with commercials (the world has to use commercials). Why is it people feel that Christians have to be broke.

          • Broilerroom says:

            What you are saying is false, the disciples were not rich yet they took the gospel to all the world, the early missionaries that took the gospel to Africa and India and most of the world were not rich, yet the turned the world upside down, most of the early church converts were slaves and yet they turned the world upside down with the gospel. Read foxes book of martyrs, they were not rich, but they were rich spiritually and it’s there sacrifice that allows you to even speak freely today, but you would not listen to them speak. Sad

      • Jesus did not come to make you rich in this fleeting world. Read Ps 49 and 1 Tim. 6 and Luke 12:15-21. In fact, the Son of God sternly warned against being rich in this fleeting world – which in most cases will prevent you from the true riches of Heaven in the next life (Mark 10:23-25).

    • Sammy says:

      My friend, the wealth of the wicked will not get transferred to believers. Jesus never taught that. This verse in Prov13:22 is put out of contest to brainwash people. According to the
      book of Revelation the antichrist system (the Beast and image of the beast)
      will control the wealth of the world in such a way that they will control <> (Rev 13). And revelation 18, shows that the satanic system (Babylon) would control world’s wealth. If you are waiting for the transfer of money from the wicked, you will wait forever. Unless you join Babylon.

      Jesus wants SPIRITUAL MAN, not rich MAN. that’s why he told the rich man to give his wealth to the poor. You who celebrate money, PLEASE LEARN from Jesus. He never Celebrated material wealth!!! He said :: <>. None of the apostles celebrated material wealth. They said <>.

      If your choice of pastor is based on money, you are in IDOLATRY of Mammon you need to REPENT. What count is to be SPIRITUAL MAN whether rich or poor, for God is SPIRIT. Most of the apostles were not millionaires but poor or average. You are terribly wrong, and blind by the wrong message. Where did Jesus teach people to follow rich pastors? Money has nothing to do with anointing.

      Jesus was born in a manger, if his family were rich they will have secured a place in the hospital at any cost!!! The early church was full poor people, Jesus never taught poor people
      to give so they would become wealthy.

      Remember the widow’s mite!! The prosperity message has made people worship mammon by thinking that they are worshiping God. Concerning the poor, Jesus gave the recommendation that we take care of them but no magical formula by which you get wealthy. JESUS NEVER CELEBRATED THE MATERIAL WEALTH OF ANY BELIEVER… HE TOLD THE YOUNG RICH GUY TO GIVE AWAY IS WEALTH INSTEAD! …. WAKE – UP PEOPLE …

    • —EXACTLY brother Eagle. These are the very “false prophets” we are so often warned about. They do not follow Jesus – who chose to divest Himself in this world – while these greedy wolves embellish themselves with lavish excess and “But
      there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their
      damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3) now check this

  • mailfolorunso says:

    @AfrikanEagle:disqus .. I am a spiritual son of Bishop David Oyedepo and i reflect the wealth of ‘my father’ in all ramification! We are not poor, we are masterpieces to the world!! And i want to invite you to give God a chance and stop struggling. I honestly know you may not understand me, but just know that the church of God is the not the pitiable poor set of people like in the past; now we show directions to the confused world. Do have a blessed day.

    • DONTbeFOOLISH says:

      You are brainwashed to the fullest. Wake up from your slumber. First , you have to know that Christianity is a man made faith and Jesus didn’t know about it. Also, these are the men of God that God said they gonna spring up when the world is coming to an end. Wake up Africans, this is not the religion of Jesus…Jesus was a jew and preached Judaism. I honestly don’t mean to disrespect you, but please try and read or watch the documentaries about Christianity. Watch it with open mind and you will know I’m not trying to disrespect you.

    • Chuku-Chuku A Oparadike says:

      I studied at Oyedepo’s Covenant University and i can say categorically that the whole compound(church and school) was filled with Hypocrites. On one semester part scholarship which some student had been on was taken off cause they said the school cud not afford it. meanwhile that was the same year Oyedepo bought his 2nd private jet. I like Oyedepo as a person and i think he is a good business man. Its the ppl that follow church blindly that i pity. You mister Folorunso how much do u have i your acc that make you blab trash? Oyedepo would typically come to the school on Sunday nights and address us and tell us how the schools clinic is only for unbelievers cos children of God dont fall ill.. Yet when his wife slumped during one of the mid week services she was flown abroad for treatment… He for heal am na… My sister who attended same school still follows him blindly and think he is the reason for all the good things that have been happening to her. meanwhile the most salary she has received since graduating several years ago is probably 200k naira a month.. I do not worship at winners neither do i have any reason to call Oyedepo “Papa” as he is fondly called yet i have never made as little as 200k in a month since finishing school…..The church and school business is booming so much that he put his very young daughter in the administration of covenant university jumping ahead of a lot of older people that have worked there for years and his other son who has bought beer for me and a couple of other friends several years ago at Gowon estate in now heading one of his churches….. I dont see anything wrong with family business though..i would do same for my kids……. Does anybody remember the part of the bible when Jesus got angry cos people where turning the temple of God to business place? Now ask yourselves the difference btw what those people did and what Oyedepo is doing.. well the bible said it all..”My people perish for lack of Knowledge”

      well i am spiritual son of Jesus Christ. My Father did not had the money to pay the temple tax nor a place for his head to lay. My father do not teach me to follow fame, wealth and riches but to forsake all those and search the truth that brings life. My father taught me that you need not wear a thousand dollar dress and a pulpit to preach His words. I have one shoe and not a room to live and zero dollar income/pay keeps me from saying that i look like the lily of the valley much beautiful than Solomon in his grandest attires. My father taught me that I cannot serve both Him and money but i was free to choose any one, so i choose the road that is narrow.

  • mailfolorunso says:

    @disqus_f2sNpZWeo1:disqus .. am sorry about your ignorance; the fact that it will hard for a rich man to make heaven doesn’t mean that heaven seekers have been condemned to poverty. The bible says “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” 3 john 1:2.

    • okwu11 says:

      You are a fool… Even Jesus never use horse always on donkeys… Yoruba ogboni pastors. When yorubas started going to church for them to be so devilish rich in spirit? Soon, they will see the wrath of God … Started exposing TB Joshua with his evil seeds he is sowing at the detriment of gullible poor minds. The poor People that contributed immensely to the building of his Oyedepo covenant university are not financially capable of sending their kids to the school they built. Is that the way God wants it?

      • Levi says:

        OkwoII, how ignorant are you!! No wonder the Bible in the book of Hosea says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge’ What you don’t know is what is keeping you under poverty, and that is why you can afford to call Dr. Oyedepo an ‘Ogboni’ I would counsel you, go buy at least three of his books on prosperity, read and apply the knowledge therein and watch and rich. There are many of us who are silently rich through the blessings of Oyedepo,s ministry. You can pass us in the street and not take note except you carry the spirit of God.

        • Seun says:

          You that have been sitting at the feet and have read all of Oyedepo’s books, how rich and prosperous are you? We all know that most of the members of these pastors are very poor. They have all been sucked dry by these pastors in tithes and offerings by manipulation, which is regarded as witchcraft in the Bible. If you are not rich and prosper in the word of God and His righteousness, you are the most wretched person irrespective of how much money you have amassed.

          • Christian Lussambo says:

            Dear Seun, you aim the wrong target. The gospel is not the gospel of Oyedepo, so you should ask: you that have been sitting at the feet of Jesus and read His entire book, how rich and prosperous are you? Without Jesus, Oyedepo would be nothing. Now my question to you: which is evil: money or the love of money? Thank you for honest reply. Be blessed

  • Olatunde Adeniran says:

    All the commentaries below are very predictable. No pastor must have material wealth. Full stop. Anyone who preaches and live like Christ must die poor. Simple. These sterotypes call money dirt and those who have them must be crooks. All kinds of stories have been waved around the rick to massage the ego of people who could not make the rich status. Like anything good that God has on offer to everyone, one must step up to get it. God’s laws of success in any field MUSt be followed to get whatHe has freely given to all to have. Great true wealth can be got in same way as making it into the kingdom of God…the way is narrow, thus few finds them. The way is full of difficulties, that even those few who find it are prepared to walk the road of success. The bible is very clear about those who acquire wealth or try to get on the narrow way into His kingdom….they will not get the real thing but fakery handed out by the father of all liars, satan himself. It is cool to critique Oyedepo and Ayo today, very few are prepared to go through the long road of hardship they went true. We are quick to conclude Pastor Ayo was linked with ceased money and arms, very few are prepared to find out the true story. Thank God, the government of Nigeria came out today to remove blame form Pastor Ayo and put it at the door step of South Africa authorities who did not keep their promise (to supply Nigeria arms to fight Boko Haram) and tried to redicle Nigeria as they have done in time past in the eye unssupecting world. The only true judge of those who find the true wealth(not just material) if God Himself and the persons themselves. Our value propositions of what is realy important in life as defined by the bible is what really goes.

    God looks at the heart and not at a persons bank account. He loves rich people and he loves poor people the same. Solomon was the richest man that ever lived. Why? Because God made him rich. It is easy to criticize but the truth is that you don’t know a person’s heart. Only God.

  • Wisdom Americana says:

    Prophet T.B Joshua has been doing a lot for his country spiritually,financially,socially, correcting the bad image citizens of the nation has made in the past, Prophet T.B Joshua is God sent to Nigeria and all over the world. I pray God will give him more anointing and more power, Glory than before in Jesus name Amen. I wish we have three pastor or prophet like Prophet T.B Joshua in Nigeria, i think poverty will run away in the country, and Love will be our breakfast, Prophet T.B Joshua help the poor mass in Nigeria and all over the world. The only Prophet that visited Colombia and donate thousands of dollars to the widow, orphan etc. The only Prophet that visit Koara Pastors conference and donate money to them, after spending much money and praying for there work of God to continue. The only Prophet of God that give 50,000 USA dollars with private jet for Ebola patient. The only Prophet Vanguard news publish his story every day, although i see vanguard as fake newspaper or agent of evil talk. Prophet T.B Joshua have done a lot by the power of God in his life, Prophet of God teach us the important of let Love lead, God is still saying some thing despite the situation, Better is not good enough the best is yet to come, Faith is there for our challenges, Jesus lives and he never say goodbye, Good Morning to my life and my future, Prophet T.B Joshua have teach us a lot that make us to thank God every day. For me and my family, God of Prophet T.B Joshua is my God. People of God Emmanuel …God with us, God is with you my Prophet, They will try and fall… You God is the mighty God in battle. I believe your teaching about Christ and the Power of the Holy Ghost because it change my life every minutes. Good Morning Prophet T.B Joshua

    • Daddy J says:

      Are you insane? I live in Africa and TB Joshua is one of the biggest blights on this broken continent. He has the Biblical literacy of a 4 year old child. Someone I know personally just spent all they had to go to Lagos and after waiting 7 days, the false prophet told her she needed to come back with the family member who had caused her to be sick. Utter nonsense and beliefs rooted in the witchcraft of his background.

      And he just killed 60+ people out of negligence and blames it on mysterious planes or the CIA.

      He is hurting Africa in a terrible way and I wish he would change professions and leave ministry to godly, Biblical men of God and women.

    If only Christians will read their Bibles, listen to God and Believe in God, Oh how their foolishness will be cured quickly. Prosperity is of the soul not money, We are not of this world and making money the ultimate aim is simple not Biblical. Let me ask, how do these so called men of God make their money, is their call to Make money. Before you answer me or critique my opinion first ask your self, Do i fear God, Will i make it to Heaven if i should die NOW. Rich or poor is not the issue, the issue is are these donors of these Pastors aiming for the salvation of their souls or aiming for the fulfilment of their selfish desires be it healing deliverance financial or anything worldly, or are they aiming for the righteousness of God. Truly the top ten Richest Men of God already have their names written in Heaven and do you think God is using the dollar currency to list them?

They are helping people, building houses……when have you who criticize these men of God….and females of God….done so. Never! You don’t have the money. God loves a cheerful giver, and you are not that. Keep your money, and get ssome understanding, about the principles of God. And please stop criticizing these men of God. If you dont like them…well you don’t have to listen to them. There are many people out there who are hurting, and need to believe that the message that Jesus came to give, Luke 4:19,……came to bring good news to the poor. (hmmmm, wonder what that could have been, good news to the poor…..Oh let me take a guess – YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE POOR NO MORE! Stop criticizing and condemning those ministers who are living large and big, and helping many.

            John 4:23-24 …. God is Spirit and He is looking those who worship Him in the Spirit and in the truth …. Jesus never made money a central topic of His gospel … <> <> … <>… To give away his wealth to the poor (Luke)… Because God is seeking for spiritual man (Rich or Poor). Jesus never celebrated the wealth of any man … The way you are doing it … I think those can afford to have access to the internet are not broke at all. And U even do not know them how would U think they jealous… The problem is that the world is witnessing at the biggest Mammon idolatry taking place among christian, all in the name of prosperity. … Jesus downplayed the wealth of man most of the time :

            – Lay up treasures in Heaven (Matt 6:19-21)
            – U cannot serve God and Mammon (Matt 6:24-)
            – The Rich Fool who said to his soul to rest after making money (Luke 12:13-21)
            – Seek ye first the Kingdom of God ( Matt 6:31-32)
            – The Widows Mites ( Luke 21: 1-3)
            – Rich man and Lazarus, and Abraham bosom (Luke 16:19-31)
            – To the Young Rich Man to give wealth away (Luke 18:18-23)
            – Love of Money Root of all evil ( 1 Timothy 6)

            … Jesus also said what profit a man to gain the whole world and loose his soul? The world is under a huge demonic attack today, many are following the broad way of material pleasure and idolatry while a big number of people are still without Jesus…. <<>>. The biggest danger we are facing is <<>> not poverty or even sickness but the wrath of GOD in the judgement day!!!

          • Beverly Woods says:

            whatever. I am born again, not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible. Money is a defense. I don’t worship money. You can worship money when you don’t have any. You need money to help people. It takes money to finance the endtime harvest.

          • Sammy says:

            Your own testimony sounds that money is number one for U. The people in danger of worshiping money are those claim to possess. It Jesus said that it was difficult for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God, so the rich are more at risk of worshiping money. Jesus never preached to people to amass wealth, He spoke against it and He encouraged people to store in heaven. Look at His declaration about the Widow’s two mites.
            How can anyone worship something that he does not possess? The one who does not possess money is never at risk of worshiping it. The bible is full of warning against the wicked behavior of the rich. Your language is not of the one being born again. You received a corrupt gospel of prosperity instead.

If someone comes to me and says they have a need, such as food, or a place to stay, or even to see a doctor, or they can’t pay their hospital bill…..I want to have enough to say let me take care of that for you. I want to live in abundance to be a blessing to others. When I said I was laughing all the way to the bank…..I was a bit irked. I really don’t like the way some people think when it comes to money. And the way they speak about the men of God. They don’t all preach about money. The Bible expressly says that money is an answer to all things. In Deuteronomy the Lord says He wants to bless us so that we can be a blessing.. He wants us to be prosperous. 3John2 says that He wishes we would prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper. Prosperity and having more than enough is not taboo. 2Corinthians 9:8 Amp says God is able to make all grace , every favor and earthly blessing come to us in abundance so that we always and under all circumstances, no matter the need, be self sufficient possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every work and charitable donation. Many years ago, the Church thought that it was God’s will for us to be sick. God wants us living as kings on this earth. Many of these preachers are doing so much good – that many do not know about. For instance Creflo Dollar has gone to south america where he has built a village of housing for people that didn’t know what it was to live in houses. As well as places in the south, that he has helped. What I am saying it takes money to fund the gospel….the end time gospel. People are hurting, and we have the answer. It is not just in prayer, but it is in helping and giving what we have. You can give nothing nor help noone, if you are the one needing help. I hope that I have help you understand my position.

          • Sammy says:

            That is an excuse for nothing. The one who can help is the creator himself. He U want to help the poor how can it be that your mouth is full of disdain against the poor? You even pretend you would not attend a church were the pastor is poor? Why not help the poor preacher as well? Jesus and the disciples were not rich, they were supported by some wealthy people. Many pastors never start by being wealthy. So your gospel is very corrupt. You are about money and U disguise yourself with mixed pretext to help the poor that you despise anyway!!! You need to REPENT.

          • NEWSONG says:

            When the Christian church was founded at Pentecost, they had very little if any money. Yet, the Gospel of Christ spread all over the known world.

          • NEWSONG says:

            Jesus and all His disciples died completely broke. At least that is what the bible and history books tell us. Jesus told us that rich people have a terrible time trying to get into Heaven.

    And what is the truth? The truth is you are poor because you lack a working knowledge of prosperity. Common sense should make you to ask yourself one basic question, and that is ‘Is God poor?

    • alex says:

      Hello, pardon me for interrupting, but please, answer this question for me: will all believers in all the churches in all the world be ever as rich as these pastors? God is rich and He want His children prosperous but will ALL those who believe be ever rich?

      And as a simple remark, ” go sit at the feet of Oyedepo” instead of “go and sit at the foot of the cross”, seems to me more like idolatry toward this person.

      • Christian Lussambo says:

        All believers in all the churches in all the world would be the rulers of this world one day with CHRIST as the OWNER of everything. I don’t need to be a millionaire to be happy with God, but it happens I will not be ashamed to praise Him even in front of you

      • Beverly Woods says:

        Alex, we are already rich. When we received Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we became as He is. (1John 4:17). As He is so are we in this world. God saw fit to put us in Him (Jesus). By the blood of Jesus, we have been made Righteous, Healty, wealthy, redeemed, etc. Many of the ministers are writers, and such. They have many streams of income. Not everyone will be moniterially rich. But it is available. Just like not all Christians, will walk in Divine Health. It is available. Daddy God, wants us to exhibit His goodness on this earth for those who are not in the family… they will want God. Because it is His goodness that will turn men to repentance. We need to stop all this strife about money. If you don’t want it….that is alright. It is a choice. Stop talking about these ministers – because they are our brothers in Christ. Jesus said that the world will know us by our love that we have for the brethren. The world hears and sees us, and the strife that we have in the family. We have not been called to judge one another. If you are not in agreement, that is fine. But stop condemning these men of God. Because you stop others who need to have hope, and need to hear the message they are preaching, from listening. Stop it.! Jesus didnot give up His precious life’s blood, for us to berate each other, condemn the ministers, and so on and so forth. We need to love one another. All this calling out these ministers (whom I love)…..well you are acting like the world. And you have not realized that you are the righteousness of God. This is your family.

    • Steve Goodyear says:

      lost souls leading other lost souls straight to hell. Paper money will make great fuel for the fires of hell. Taking scripture out of context and twisting THE GOSPEL into a prosperity message is exactly what has caused this deception to spread so fast and so far. You forget , or may be you never knew, that the Bible promises.. Heaven and Earth WILL PASS AWAY but MY WORD will last forever. Be rich in the WORD and forget about building a financial empire. PREACH AND TEACH THE GOSPEL not the man made laws of financial success. FOLLOW JESUS and BE LEAD by THE HOLY SPIRIT . Stop following men who lie to you and seduce you with their flamboyance, lofty words, expensive delicacies and silk suits..Ask yourself this question…who will these or any other rich men be and what will they have to say when EVERYTHING is taken from them and burned up in Hell. If the main evidence of their faith and righteousness is their big pile of stuff.. you are in big trouble.

      • Christian Lussambo says:

        Hold on, dear Steve! In the prosperity message, riches has never been the evidence of faith and righteousness. Our righteousness is based on what CHRIST did for us and our faith is IN HIM. God in the heart and money in the pocket. Everything at its proper place!!!

    • 1register says:

      Jesus was poor, owned no house even said he had no place to lay His head. He also said His kingdom was NOT of this world. You are spewing rhetoric that is common to the false teachings of Word Faith followers, not biblical Christians. Read your Bible.

      • Christian Lussambo says:

        I keep reading my bible, dear 1register, and I keep seeing your “poor” Jesus, feeding multitudes, paying miraculeously his tax, blessing Peter’s ship with loads of fish, and having an accountant for his cash. I keep reading that your “owned no house” Jesus said that everything his father has, was his. I keep reading that your “poor” Jesus answered to Peter that whoever will forsake everything for His sake, will reap a hundred NOW IN THIS LIFE and in the life to come. Now I wonder, who’s twisting the Word of God. Be blessed!

  • John Smith says:

    That last line should more correctly read, “These pastors are respected by PROFESSING Christians all over the world.” No true born again believer with even an ounce of discernment is going to fall for their false gospel. Hope they’re enjoying “their best life now” – I don’t envy them their future, unless they genuinely repent!

    • Daniel Allen says:

      that is true. People who have a true relationship with Christ want nothing to do with false teachers. Jesus never said people will get rich by following him

    • spaul6290 says:

      John, I myself haven’t heard many of these Pastors and of what they preach, but I am assuming that you have. Please enlighten us of many hours of teaching that you have listened too. I certainly hope that is the case, because you have said it’s false and I hope that’s based upon what you have listened to and lined up with the scriptures. Then your last statement pretty much puts them in hell. You must have a connection with God that most don’t; to know whether someone is going to hell.

      I myself don’t know what they teach and preach, but for me to assume that if a preacher is wealthy he or she is preaching a false gospel is totally erroneous!! I have no clue of their previous life before becoming a pastor. They could have very successful businesses. Many of these pastors have written books that have become best sellers. Obviously, they can invest their money as well. So, for anyone to naturally assume wealth as a minister is of ill gotten gain is a wrong assumption.

As a believer I commit to pray for them and trust the Lord that He knows what he is doing and that our God is sovereign still.

  • Raymong says:

    Good one….the true Christians in the Bible was taught to store riches in heaven as mentioned in MATTHEW 6:20 ( New Life Version )
    Gather together riches in heaven where they will not be eaten by bugs or become rusted. Men cannot break in and steal them. In Greek G2344 θησαυρός

    From G5087; a deposit, that is, wealth (literally or figuratively): – treasure.

    • Christian Lussambo says:

      Absolutely Raymond. but how will gather something you don’t have ?

    Abraham was a very wealthy man, David Was pretty wealthy as well, Job was very very rich, Solomon was VERY VERY VERY RICH. I am not hating on these Pastor’s wealth just wondering if you Scott Ryan are saying we should Be Poor and without. And of what character of God is that? Is poverty really of God!?!

    • Seun says:

      The man has given you lots of Scriptures, but that’s not enough for you that you are now seeking his personal opinion. Why don’t you make up your mind and answer it for yourself based on the Scriptures. The scripture only should be what guides your answers about the kingdom of God and righteous living. It is unfortunate most people no longer read or pay attention to the scripture, but only to their pastors…making their pastors gods.

      • Letlhogonolo Rockey Mate says:

        I soooo agree with you n scriptures also call for interpretation. So i posed a question asking if we Christians are meant to just not have any form of wealth based on the scriptures that were presented n this is still a question that pose to all Christian!

    • AngelaT says:

      No, God certainly did not want his people to suffer unjustly, and he will provide his people with what they need. But need is placed in the context of service to him. People on a mission may need food and some form of shelter. Some people might need access to technology in order to spread the message. I don’t understand why an individual needs not one but two private jets. But let me put it in a different way. Not all Christians must be poor. But some are called to live in poverty for the sake of the kingdom. When The Church in Europe was in dissarray consumed by corruption in the 12th century, it was not the shmancy popes and the kings that revived her; it was largely through the orders of Francis and Dominic, and these guys were practically beggar monks who travelled around the country preaching repentance. It was through them that a major revival came. Why was this? People saw the wealthy in the Church not as holy men, but greedy, petty men. In other words, wealth did not add to credibility. It added to disdain. but a man who is poor and on fire for Christ, now that is a man we know is not going to be corrupt. And so the people listened to these preachers who both talked and walked the Gospel.

      Others are led not just to poverty, but to martyrdom. Tell me, if God does not want Christians to be poor, how could he want them to be dead? And yet this is what happened through much of the early history of the Church. It happened Whenever the Church was brought to new places, particularly in Asia and in Africa. Yet not only does God allow it, Christ says that’s what we should expect when we become Christians. Assume even some of the apostles were wealthy. How did it end for them? All but one were martyred, and John was exiled. Prosperity? More likely in the next world.

      I look at my country (the United States) and while there are many Christians, most Americans are not all that faithful and have committed awful things. In the United States the government is not pursuing policies that run directly counter to the Gospel and its teaching on the family. In the United states, one in five unborn children are murdered through induced abortions. Their blood cries out to God, and maybe our nation will begin to witness the consequences, But for now, we remain the strongest and richest nation in the world. But then I look at the middle East, and I see a Christian people far more faithful than we ever were. These Christians have had to endure much for centuries since they had been under Muslim control. Yet what happens to them? In Syria and Iraq, they are routinely killed, their churches burned, their women raped, and their possession taken away if they attempt to escape. Tell me. Why is God allowing them to suffer like that, whereas in America, we continue to live (semi) freely? When will God make them rich? And will it matter, since so many have already died? These martyrs will receive a crown far greater than the ones we will receive. It is through the blood of martyrs that the seeds of Christianity grown and flourish. If and when the Church rises in the Middle East, it is because Christ worked in them and through their witness. heads will turn to them, and wonder what kind of man Christ must be that they would not only die for him, but also forgive the men killing them?

      Ultimately, God places us where he wants us to be so that we might serve him. But not all of us will be placed in a mansion. Those of us that are should be as generous not as the rich men who put their money bags in the temple, giving out of their excess, but like the widow, who with her two pennies gave all that she had. Those of us that are not, are given other resources with which to bring souls to Christ. May we use them to the fullest! I cannot read the hearts of these pastors, but if they are withholding money merely to pamper themselves, all the while claiming to be so generous, They are little better than Annias and Saphira, and God will see to it that they get their just reserve.

  • Kitsa Kiiza Alexander says:

    Aaahahahahaaha, good rich men of God! Its LORD who remains to judge their spiritual richness!

  • Vic Zoe Warren says:

    “Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life” – Mark 10:29-30

    It looks like prosperity is indeed a promise of Jesus to the faithful. Glory to God! Glory to Jesus!

    Brothers and sisters, because this is first what we all here aren’t we? Filled with the Love of our so wonderful Father in heaven, who is full of grace , honor and kindness. I don’t mean to start my comment with something we may hear every Sunday…. but how are we talking here together? Calling other monkeys? stupid? I may not have allot of wisdom, but something I know for sure is: They don’t talk like that up there..
    The question of money was always in the Church of Christ a blessing or a curse. And there is not a black or white answer for it. There is no need to dive deep in the Bible picking examples such of King David, Solomon or using a verses that may affirm one statement or the other. God is a good God and he does bless his children because he loves them. Are all God’s blessing only spiritual or for the soul? No, of course not Jesus gave them wine, fish and bread beside healing, salvation and all other good stuff he did. Is wealth in terms of money a blessing that God can give? Yes he can and he sometimes would even like to give it more but the problem is that allot of us could not deal with it in a humble way and still have God and the heavenly kingdom as our first priority and main reason of our life. Isn’t it like that it is unfortunately when we are in need or in a difficult situation we get the closest to God. And once we do good we get arrogant proud or just lazy? This is also the reason why the bible calls money the root of all evil or why it is difficult for a rich to go to heaven. Why? Because it messes you up if you are not strong in God and give money the right value in your life.. This is why those TV preacher that focus on money may sound good and mention some bible verses in their preaches do not help people that are fragile. Good people, honest but still children in terms of knowing God and knowing his living word. Why? Because they messed them up, they bring them exactly where the world’s believe is: Money is what you need and money is what makes you happy and what you have to focus on. And that my beloved is wrong. We are called to preach Jesus, Jesus crucified and risen, the Savoir that died for our sins. That’s our mission. Giving the holy spirit the opportunity to touch the heart of those sad and so empty peoples out there, speaking words of love and life to them and to the people around them. This is our call this is our mission, this is what we should have as priority and desire in our heart. And if God then wants us to give more, more money a bigger house or whatever.. amen that is great, but this shall not drive us and make us loose the purpose of our calling. What does it help me to have a beautiful fast car but no anointing no fire and passion? I rather have an older car but when I pray for sick, possessed or sad people see the holy spirit making miracles, through such an unworthy human like I am. This is a deep honor and what I would call a amazing heavenly blessing. .. What we know is that he told us we will never miss anything. He will always provide, even if like Jesus we will need to barrow a couples of bucks from a fish to pay the IRS but he will always give us what we need. And that should be good enough for us. or as Paul said to the Philippians:
    I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
    May God help us to dive deeper in the secrets of Jesus to understand more his will for our life and to be lights and filled with his holy spirit…..Oh and guys: Be nice to each other here, start working on liking each other looks like most of us will spend the eternity together…

  • Qwertz says:

Believe, monkey mailfolorunso is right, and God loves him and blesses him financially too. Maybe you’ve been not taught into all the truth regarding prosperity, as most people. I agree that they are people abusing the message but it doesn’t nullify it. Sorry! Be blessed.

    I heard Creflo doesn’t even consider the hospital and orphanages he built and finance overseas and I know a woman who works for his ministry and as soon as you are hired, your debt is paid off and they paid for her expenses to move to Atlanta and provided what was needed for her. She told me a member/employee lost everything in a fire and Creflo took the offering and gave it to her. Amazing experience when I saw World Changers church.

    Although many people are against prosperity, you can rely upon the words of Jesus in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom…” According to 3 John 2 and Psalm 35:27, it is God’s will that you prosper and be in health! “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”…“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”

The selfish only hear about how life is all about receiving gods blessings thus becoming rich and receiving personal favors is the natural extension of this childish self centered thinking.
    People who truly understand the real message recognize that it’s not about self aggrandizing oneself in glory and riches under the false guise of helping others. The story of the old woman who gave away a single coin being all her wealth vs the rich man who gave a large donation a tiny portion of his assets perfectly illustrates this.

    So ask yourself out of these super rich pastors how many of them would
    give up their wealth, houses, luxury cars, private jets, yachts &
    ties to fame to alleviate the poverty of the masses if it really came
    down to it. That’s how you can quickly assess their true intentions.
    This does not mean that someone being wealthy is nessecarily bad but how they accumulate and maintain their wealth is all the difference. People who prey on the poor and the naive are parasites.

    both God and money.

  • How About Alex Abhraham Tanuseputra? He have a biggest church in asia..

  • Minister Jason Williams says:

    Well if what I am reading in some of these comments was the case then everyone is hypocrites, just as it is spoken that these pastors are. Who has left everything, gave away all of their possessions to the poor, left there families and jobs since Jesus said those who left house, mother, brother, sister for the gospel.. Let me know???

    Before we Use scriptures Matt 8:20 was speaking when Jesus was walking and ministering not near his home which in John 1:39 He showed them his home. Every disciple was business owners who left that to preach the gospel, Jesus had a treasurer, to think the gospel can move in poverty is not even possible. Money is a tool and we need to stop letting the few rich and politicans in the country keep educating our youth to be a laborer and not a owner.

    • Mary B. Blessing says:

      You also suppose to be a laborer for God. You took on that position. You suppose to be out their in our neighborhoods and communities, ‘working” uplifting the name of God, pleading the blood of Jesus over our children lives. You are speaking about politics but at least they are trying to create opportunities to help our children. When are you preachers and your disciples are coming from behind the wall in these church buildings and start imitating a Christ like life?

  • Minister Jason Williams says:

    Everyone should read John Hope Bryant “How the poor can save Capitalism ”
    As he wrote Christians haven’t got the memo.

    when i was young i gave all my money to preachers. Not only that, the preachers never stop asking, so i had to lean my friends and parents to help this preachers. Now they drive super cars and i am broke but never do they realize that i sacrifice my clothing, lunch, taxi fares to help them. I remember going 18 kilometers to church on foot with old cloths but they mock me and prophesied against me. my heart was so worried. when i had given all i had for his kingdom and had nothing left but little coins for offering and my life to God, their anger was on me. when i was in my best shape with my savior Jesus they never stop their prophesies that i was about to die. on hearing the news I fainted and people called me possessed. what is wrong with this generation? why do preachers loves to rob you? why do preachers always ask but never give? I learned my lessons the hard way. every one should help the poor and feed the hungry instead of giving to the ever increasing appetite of preachers. this preachers collect your money promising hundred fold in return and with this money they buy super cars, buy expensive houses and go for family vacation instead of helping the needy. I gave up going to Church long time ago because after all they are all excellent stockbrokers disguised as sheeps.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    Throughout biblical times, the Pharisees and the Sadducees were the rich and wealthy chief deacons and priest who set on the high seats of the synagogues and temples. They only cared for their wealth, fame and own prosperity, not teaching the lost people according to the true gospel God. The unrighteousness of these priest or preachers or whatever they call themselves, cause the land of Israel not to prosper and the people to perish with no prosperity or hope. This is the same behavior that these now a days preachers practice. Robbing God of His righteousness. These preachers in the Bible sought to destroy and kill Jesus or anyone else who did not abide by their man-made commandments and who taught the gospel of God. Modern day preachers are an extended version of these biblical people, killing the true gospel of God and His righteousness.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    We suppose to imitate a Christ like life but these religious leaders have created man-made documents to pass amongst one another to ordain one another so they can preach, teach and minister the word of man, not God. They have degrees in religion and they still seek life-styles that completely goes against the righteousness of God.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    We do not make God our strength, we trust in the abundance of our riches and we strengthen ourselves in wickedness said the Lord. God sees everything even the hidden secrets that is laid deep in these preachers hearts. These preachers shall cause their lives to fall upon themselves if they do not start waling in the righteousness in God. You are rich but you can be made poor in a blink of an eye.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    Why continue to go out to church building, giving these preachers your money. They suppose to give that ten percent to you. In the Bible these preachers were told to give ten percent to help the poor, the homeless, the fatherless, the widows, the strangers and the fatherless; and if they would give, God will open the windows of Heaven and pour them out blessings that they would not have enough room to receive. Since many preacher love quoting scriptures out of the Bible, did you all see where it says that “if a man does not work he should not eat and that also included preacher men. The Bible is not here to teach us how to live it is here to teach us how not to live. These preachers have become part of this world, creating their man-made commandment, following after their own spirit to satisfy their flesh, misleading many into betraying God.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    I am the Lord, you follow the ways of your leaders, if you return to me I will return to you saith the Lord. God is not concern with our ritual, sacrifices, offerings, money or going to church buildings, The only thing God want us to do is to sacrifice our hearts into repentance. We can not find God in a building that is made by hands saith the Lord. We must worship God in truth and in the spirit. Church is not a building, it is people who live their lives according to the righteousness and gospel of Christ. The true believers of God is God’s Church. Church is in us and all around us. Church is abiding by the true ways of God. We must repent, The lord rejoice in repentance hearts. To enter into the church of God, pick up your Bibles and start reading for yourselves. The Bible preach and minister to your souls better than any preacher man. We do not have to give these preachers a dime, we only have to give God a little of our personal time. When we seek and learn God for ourselves, God has a special way of bringing clarity into our thoughts, He opens our eyes to see a brighter destiny. In such a wonderful way, God creates a path that leads us into everlasting prosperity.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    God open doors for us to be tremendously blessed, He gives abundantly but we must live a Christ like life. Worship God’s way, not men way.

  • Heather Kirkpatrick says:

    Greetings, to all you Kings and Queens who woke up on this side of the grave this morning. Happy Sabbath Day and may God bless you for the duration of your lives. Even if you feel that you have nothing, start thanking God for what you got and He will bless you with more but we must live a Christ like life. Amen

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    When we seek after the things in this world more than we seek Jesus, we are betraying our God who created the Heavens, the earth and our corrupt and disrespectful souls. Seek not silver, gold or money because it will come abundantly when we seek to live a Christ like life. Let us start seeking after integrity and righteousness so we can start creating and environment of honor for the gospel of Christ. Amen

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    Times and things will always change but God’s judgment, punishment and righteousness stays the same and the people of God must not change with the changing of times.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    How does it benefit us for these preachers to be stuck up behind church walls and TV screens. What good is it other than being another avenue to making these preachers rich, building multimillion dollar businesses and organizations. People in our neighborhoods and communities are dying and suffering. These people suppose to be out, pleading the blood over our children lives and uplifting the name of God in our neighborhoods and communities not in physical church buildings or on television screens.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    I wonder many times what could make these preachers come from behind these physical church walls and television screens and join the many leaders and non-leaders who have devote unconditional time and appears to have exalted every avenue to assist in bringing some type of resolution to the death and destruction that plagues our streets and our children lives. If these preachers would go out into our communities and neighborhoods, in truth and in the spirit, and for the glory of God, and lift up their voices in an repentance way, we will start to see the glory, mercy and deliverance of God. The president, the chief of police, the mayor, the governor, community leaders, civil right leaders and so many more people have tried endlessly to help bring peace throughout our nation but they have not yet been successful. So when will these preachers see that they have replace God’s ways and language with their own ways and language and are the number one cause that this deadly plague is raging strong from one end of the earth to the next.

  • Mary B. Blessing says:

    When are we going to stop paying tithes and offerings to these people, making them rich while we are suffering and struggling. Pay tithes and offerings according to God not man. God wants us to tithe our life to Him and Him only and offer our unconditional love, compassion, forgiveness and righteousness toward one another. God do not care about our money, or our rituals or sacrifices, God want us to sacrifice our hearts into repentance. A rich man came to Jesus and ask Him, Master what can I do to have eternal life. give up all your possessions and follow me saith the Lord. So do not be brainwashed into giving your blessing to these people. These people suppose to give that ten percent to help the poor, the widows, the homeless, the strangers and the passerby’s. Since these preachers want to follow the ways of the preachers in the Bible, they suppose to take all of their possessions to the forefront of their gate so the widow, the poor, the homeless and the fatherless can take until they are satisfied.

  • — IF YOU are truly a man of the WORD, man up and read 1 Timothy 6 !!! THAT’s the WORD of God. “If any man teach
    otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our
    Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

    4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of
    words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

    5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth,
    supposing that gain is godliness (equating spirituality with finances): FROM SUCH WITHDRAW THYSELF (Run for your life).

    6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

    7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

    8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

    9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many
    foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

    10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted
    after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through
    with many sorrows.

    11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”

  • —– TO THOSE WHO ARE BEING PUMMELED BY THE greed-driven, covetous beguilers who try to convince you that Jesus made Himself materially rich in His earthly life, please consider this:

    WHILE on earth, Jesus had no vehicle (Luke 19:28-35), had nowhere to lay His beautiful head (Luke 9:58), and had very little money in His pocket or account (Luke 17:24-27).

  • — The LORD’s apostle Paul told us plainly that “them THAT MIND EARTHLY THINGS” are the very “enemies of the cross of Christ.” Philippians 3:18-21

  • — Was Jesus Rich While on Earth?

    “Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God
    chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom
    which he hath promised to them that love him?” James 2:5

    If you somehow vainly believe that the amount of money or possessions
    a person possesses has anything at all to do with the significance of
    that person, your thinking is utterly amiss friend.

  • madu zirimike says:

    Jesus is and was GOD – MANIFEST in the flesh, therefore He was and is still RICH. His role on earth as son ( humanity ) was to suffer and save mankind, in this role He suffered poverty, rejection and died poor.
    But as Son of God ( divinity ) He was and is RICH in all righteous things.
    Have you studied the dual nature of Jesus Christ, that will help you to check all sides before you chose side.
