~~ Robbers in the church ~~
2 Corinthians 4:2
but have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
handling the word of God deceitfully
James 1: 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
This word, VISIT, here, does not mean to go see them. It means to supply their needs. So, unless you and your church obey this, you are into false religion.
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
(This speaks of doing good unto all men, especially the people of God. It is not telling us to pay a preacher or priest.)
For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.
distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
2 Corinthians 9:9
as it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
(Where is one verse saying that if you give to a preacher your righteousness remains? It is not in the Word of God, so it must be the word of Satan. Whose word are you paying to sit and listen to?)
HE HAS GIVEN TO THE POOR. MIGHTY MESSAGE. NOT PREACHED IN YOUR ‘CHURCH’.
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. (give to those who need; not to preachers)
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
2 Corinthians 8:3-5Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
3 For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves; 4 praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering TO the saints.
(Notice, this said, MINISTERING….TO… THE SAINTS; NOT TO SOME PREACHER).
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.
Here is a church which made up a gift, to be sent by some of the ministers, to some poor saints. Paul sent several ministers to deliver this gift to those in need. It was NEVER meant to be given to any preacher, but to saints in need. So when one group was prospering, they helped those in need. Then when those began to prosper they would in turn help others in need. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY GOD said for us to GIVE. This is showing that in true Christianity, equality is the only way. So setting up one man, to rule over the church, and paying him a big salary, so that he is above the others, is not of God, but of satan.
This one is powerful:
1 Corinthians 16:15
I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)
Addicted themselves TO the ministry of the saints.
All of these verses teach that we are to give to the necessity of saints. I cannot find one single verse telling us to pay a preacher. Where did that ‘doctrine’ come from? Why is the entire church world operating under this FALSE DOCTRINE?
I say it is a strong conspiracy of lust-filled men, who pretend to be ministers of God. Yet they are in reality ministers of satan. They think the gift of God can be purchased with money. So they drill this false teaching into the unlearned ‘sheep’ that they have control over, that they must pay a preacher, in order to please God and to have salvation.
It is a doctrine of devils, for no scripture bears this out. Let them bring forth their scripture which tells the saints to give to the preacher.
The have twisted a few verses, as they do for all their false doctrines, to try and make the Word of God say what they want it to say. For this, they will receive a bad place in hell.
1 Corinthians 16Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
16 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.
Preachers totally slaughter the above verses, in order to deceive unsuspecting souls into giving their money to them. Woe to them. They are GUILTY of HANDLING THE WORD OF GOD DECEITFULLY.
And I mean it is a world-wide deception and conspiracy. Read verse one carefully: “collection…FOR…the saints”. Not FROM the saints. Big difference. FOR THE SAINTS. It was not for Paul and Paul did not take nor teach them that they needed to give anything to him.
Notice that Paul said he would send the ones chosen by that church to take their gifts to those poor saints in Jerusalem. Paul was NOT taking this gift for himself. Nor was he going to take it alone. These were honest, God-fearing ministers of God. They were not ministers of satan, coveting other men’s money.
The main purpose of this message is to show you how these covetous preachers have robbed the poor, by leading the people to believe that they must give their money to them; pay them to preach. Pay them to pastor your church. Pay them to visit the sick, etc. It is satanic.
But what is the worst result of this evil doctrine? It actually robs those in need of receiving the help that true Christians would have given to them, IF THEY had known that this is actually what God requires. Instead of helping those in need, you are padding the pockets of men who are too lazy to work, and/or just want more.
These wolves in sheep clothing have joined the ranks of ‘preachers’ for the very purpose of having an easy living and preying off the ignorant who think they are serving God.
These false ministers run back into the OT and pick up on tithing, which was to feed the hungry and take care of the priests, who had no inheritance among Israel, and they try to bring this into the NT church. But that is full error, and has the hurtful result of putting themselves and you back under the law, by which is no salvation. So, instead of helping you have salvation, it keeps you from it. Serious business, right? Sure.
Many hurting people could have and would have been helped IF the ignorant church members had gotten into the word of God, and not allowed these hirelings to deceive them into PAYING A PREACHER instead of helping the sick and needy, as God commands us to do. This is nothing short of ROBBING THE POOR.
They are handling the word of God deceitfully. God will bring them into judgement for this evil. God will bring you into judgment for allowing this evil to prosper and did not study his Word and obey it.
When the DAY is over, and judgment strikes, you will all see that your church was actually a seat of Satan, and had not one thing to do with the pure religion of God. You have not obeyed the Word of God at any point. You and your preacher/church are guilty of ROBBING THE POOR.
You are all going to be shocked when you are told by God that your ‘church’ had not one thing to do with Him, but was the seat of satan.
Rev 2: (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan
12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is.
So there you have it, church is the seat of satan, synagogue of satan.
Beware lest you lose your soul, paying that preacher and not obeying the word of God.
