Wooed, Pulled, Begged, Courted, Persuaded are just a few words one can use to describe the incessant ways the Lord has used to draw away His people from Jezebel’s entrapment.
These are His beloved for whom He suffered and shed His Blood – many are being called, but only a few are responding. They are like the hypnotized Samson on the laps of Delilah.
Unfortunately, this is what many believers are guilty of in this generation. They have allowed themselves to be incredibly deceived. Worse still, a vast majority are even paying their way into the deception!
“Are you serious? Paying their deceivers to get deceived?” You ask. Yes, with their eyes wide open. They do so slavishly every Sunday with their ‘Partners Envelope’ on one hand and their Tithes’ Envelope on the other. Their gilt-edge Bibles are kept on a special stand at home.
I believe I am qualified to a certain degree to write on this subject because I have lived in this environment for more than two decades and have some experience of what I am saying.
You enter the megachurch and sit on a cosily soft chair. Right at the pulpit, they have a golden globe spinning around, propagating the Illuminati belief that the earth is spinning around the sun. You do not know that it completely contradicts Psalm 93 verse 1.
Of course, you came to worship or should I say, be entertained with all the glitziness of the music that is barely different from the ones they play at the disco parties’ downtown. The choir is a spectacle of emotions, and because they must cater for the youth; you see them gyrate like Beyoncé’s Sasha on stage while their modesty leaves little to imagination.
They sing and you wonder if that song is truly a love song to Jesus or the one they lust about in their closet, not even ONE mention of Jesus. Soulish songs that make a person to think of sexual gratification instead of the passion (suffering) of Christ.
Your emotions are stirred up until it is time to submit your Partner’s envelope and tithes in huge collection baskets.
As the huge tithe baskets are being packed away, the announcer starts to advertise the numerous books on offer. There is one for each malady you can imagine that is similar to the services the shrink at the City Centre offers. Overall, they are engineered to help become a wealthy person.
Little do you realise that “through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you,” according to Peter the apostle in 2 Peter 2:3. So, you ‘sow’ more money into his bank accounts.
Then the pastor – no he prefers to be called ‘Senior’ Bishop – shows up and starts his motivational speech. You need not open the Bible at all, it is not needed since the people only want to be motivated on how to buy a house in each state of the US and if that has been accomplished, start buying holiday homes in each continent of the world.
That is what YOU want to hear as well – How to Be Rich!”
This bishop does not preach against sin because he just wants to dwell on what is positive. He can’t see any wrong in the homosexual lifestyle. He has not signed up to marry gays in the church yet, but he would gladly attend their wedding, when invited, and happily cheer the couple on. Of course, he ignores Romans 1:25.
So, gay and lesbian couples comfortably sit on your left and your right, happily holding hands and exchanging pecks and lustful glances as the sermon about how to make your first million dollars goes on.
In fact, the bishop has signed up to be part of the Hollywood Preachers’ Live Experience; through this soap opera, he will display how he and his wife make love for the world to see.
Unbeknown to you, this married Senior Bishop is secretly having a homosexual relationship with young men in the youth group. He pumps them with money and entraps them with all kinds of toys – mobile phones, video games, designer clothing, etc.
Tape of The Month Club!
The best preaching your Bishop ever preached was a sermon on rapture: “Don’t worry, we shall all disappear and escape the tribulation that is going to overtake the people of the world.” He assured the people repeatedly that they need not worry about their lifestyle; because ‘grace’ had it covered. This rapture sermon was made into a series and offered as “Tape of the Month” for just $60.
Secretly, the bishop or pastor wished his empire would remain forever; with Jesus never returning in his lifetime. So, he had to make sure his sermons, which are bought over the Internet for some $60 each, had to be carefully scripted like a motivational speaker.
Your pastor’s ministry is a dream come true. His is the largest megachurch ever. His empire is rosy except for a few issues such as one of the staff of the church just stole some $600,000 from the offering basket a month ago and some of the Assistant Pastors have been having a go at each other about promotion and affairs.
No ordinary member can easily access the Senior Pastor; even the Assistant Pastors are too busy. Such members must book an appointment for a minimum of six weeks. But, when one of the top donors of the church wants to see the Senior Pastor, all he needs do is just turn up – no appointment needed.
Every Sunday you take your seat at the megachurch, all you hear about is how you will become rich and amass wealth.
You look around, the congregation love and look forward to the festive periods of the year where the celebrations are nothing but camouflaged idolatrous worship of Ishtar with the other one at the end of the year in celebration of Satan Claus.
If this has so far described you and your spirituality, I must honestly inform you that you are one of the Inhabitants of the Earth!
Are You An Inhabitant of the Earth?
An inhabitant of the earth sings about heaven, talks about heaven and dances about heaven, but his heart says, “I’m happy with life on this side of life” (Numbers 32).
Like the proverbial ostrich, you have CHOSEN to bury your head in the sand of oblivion. You are looking with your eyes, but can’t see; you are listening with your ears, but can’t hear!
When Jesus was asked about His Return, the first thing He said was (and still is) the most important about His return, were just seven words:
“And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.” [Luke 21:8]
These church folks, who are firmly grounded as inhabitants of the earth, have been deceived. They did not take heed and got deceived.
They are deceived to believe that the building where they meet is the temple of God, so they don’t mind sharing the true temple of God with the harlot named Jezebel who is about to face judgement (Revelation 18:4).
They have been so deceived to believe that the display of signs and wonders equates to being highly spiritual. So, should the Pastor perform a miracle or some magic, it doesn’t matter, he has proven himself as the man of God.
On a few occasions, you see them barking around like dogs in their services claiming it is the Spirit, waving hands for you to fall by their lying wonders (Isaiah 28:14-15). They teach you lies and you to fall into error (Isaiah 9:15).
I will be blunt here. I once heard televangelist Leroy Thompson once boasting of his $16,000 DOG; that his children are known by their cars (not by their relationship with Christ), that if you are poor you can’t be saved and encouraged women to disrespect their husbands if they don’t make enough money (it’s on YouTube if you want to verify).
They sell you to partake in the satanic baptism called the ‘Bucket Challenge’, which has the cover of charity to deceive and you join them in the ritual. Oh! What an error!
If a young girl in witchcraft approaches them, instead of showing compassion and helping to set the captives free, the Pastor will slap and verbally abuse the girl. Some are so deceived to the point that when the Pastor asks them to eat grass, they do it until they become sick. When he tells them not to wear underpants to church services, they don’t!
Unfortunately, they have failed to read that there is a spirit of the antichrist, which the Bible calls the beast that arises from the earth looking like the lamb but with the voice and pomp of Satan (Revelation 16:13-14).
You have been deceived to believe that if you do not pay tithes, you will be cursed by God; so ignorant of 2 Corinthians 9:7, you pay up even with your CREDIT cards! Your are struggling with debt while this so-called bishop/pastor is flying his $60 million private jet to several holiday homes around the world! Get out of the Earth!
When they want to buy a private jet, they ask you to sow all your savings into the project. But if you have no job and no income they never sow into your need! Are you not deceived?
What you have failed to notice is that most of these megachurch pastors are representatives of the New World Order (NWO) and their assignment is to promote the Gospel of Inclusion, another Gospel (Galatians 1:6-9).
You may want to distance yourself from the person described above, but are you being sincere to yourself? Deep inside, are you not always feeling there is more to Christ than all these pop-Gospel-money-grabbing-religion your partake on Sundays?
Where Is Your Altar of Prayer?
Like the Jews who killed Jesus, the vast majority of church-goers still believe that God’s habitation is in their church buildings. So they donate all their money to build a Crystal Cathedral, thinking they are giving to God – a project God has no interest.
Is the altar of God in your church building? At some special place in your house? Or inside the bishop’s mansion?
No. The altar that God prefers is your SOUL. Your soul is the altar of sacrifice. That was why Paul asked us to constantly renew our minds with the Word of God.
You are the temple of God – John 2:19-21. Some know this because they have heard it repeatedly in some way, but their attitude is the opposite. They still hold to the lie that the building is God’s dwelling.
Inside the REAL temple is an altar of sacrifice; that altar is your soul and YOUR-SELF is the sacrifice that God expects to be offered on the altar – hence your life will no more be yours. Thus you shall be a LIVING sacrifice unto God.
When you do this, you will simply be transformed into an object of pleasure and delight to God. You will be truly the apple of God’s eye! God will be Jealous over you.
You protest – I am working for God – Really? Jesus even said that the greatest work anyone can do is to BELIEVE ON HIM in John 6:29. Are you sure that you are obeying Jesus’ Words stated in Revelation 18:4?
The truth is that you are working for this so-called man of God. You think you know his God? Are you sure it isn’t money? You are in a building that was founded upon lies, proclaims lies, makes merchandise of people and robs people of the truth! Someone is helping himself to your treasures ON the earth.
“Tele-evangelism in the US is worth two to three BILLION dollars industry, untaxed and unregulated,” claimed Ole Anthony of Trinity Foundation. Multiply that by three to get an estimate for the world. Big business!
No wonder God observed, “My people are destroyed for their lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6). To help them, He sends them a vulnerable-looking unknown preacher, standing in a nearby pavement with no fanciful clothing.
God Sends Unpopular Preacher
He stands at the street corner and shouts like a megaphone, pointing you to the truth, but unfortunately, you are not interested in “holiness preachers”, especially ones who are not dressed in designer suits. These are the kinds who are politically incorrect, preachers that condemn homosexuality; shun beautiful cars and majestic homes.
Dear friend, you better obey the Lord Jesus Christ and leave the city called Sodom and Egypt (Babylon). Many will be caught in her plagues against the wishes of God. Don’t play with your salvation as many others do. Truly, the End times are on humanity.
Pride of life has kept many folks entrenched in these Jezebel houses. These people have received the inner witness that they are in the wrong places of worship, but they want to belong. They like showing off their new cars at the parking lot with their new designer clothing. Sadly, they are playing Russian roulette with their lives.
As mentioned in the first of this series, you must leave the earth and start climbing the ladder Jacob saw in his dream (Genesis 28:12). It is your only way of escaping the imminent judgement of God.
This is revealed in Isaiah 24 what the earth is going to look like at the time of God’s judgement, verses 17 and 18 says:
Fear and the pit and the snare
Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.
And it shall be
That he who flees from the noise of the fear
Shall fall into the pit,
And he who comes up from the midst of the pit
Shall be caught in the snare;
For the windows from on high are open,
And the foundations of the earth are shaken.
What is the way of escape from the earth? Get out of those Jezebel temples that they call churches and climb the Ladder to heaven!
Every person who accepts Jesus Christ as the Saviour and gets born again is equipped and set up on this ladder, which has a base called the FOUNDATION (salvation through Christ) upon which you climb. Unfortunately, many have been cast down from this ladder through deception.
Each step a believer takes is supposed to help his upward movement until he is caught up to God and His throne.
We are to build our character, by adopting the nature of God and dumping our own because “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God”. The Bible says, “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.” (1 Corinthians 15:49).

Good evening, John.
Thank you for this message I read just now.
I am afraid it is so true. In the church building I used to go I was asked to write articles which were read and corrected before being printed – which I found right as I am not a theologian. All of them were accepted until I wrote one about tattoo, piercing and scarification. I know this theme (as all the others) was given by the Lord. But this one, even though they told me it was right, true to the Word, was refused as it might have shocked the tattooed ! no ripple, no nothing. I met the people who told me they could not have this type of articles, even true, in order not to hurt the readers. I was so shocked I left. And that after listening to musis that has nothing to glorify the Lord, worship leaders and band more interested with the applause (yes!) and the spotlight.
Yes, everything is appalling. I was told I had to accept modern music, youth (?) tastes, modern ways. I left.
A church in which people arrive late, talk to their neighbour, see the place as a tearoom or a chat room, listen to their cell phone is an appalling place.
Where is the fear of God, John ?
Years ago, I was so into TBN along with my mom, me more so. Benny Hinn was my favorite. Then I started having some “bad” dreams about him, where in my dream he came to my job angry. He was pointing to his watch in repeated fast motions. He wanted to know where was my tithe & why has it not been sent in yet. I took this as a sign all is not what I thought after all. I divorced TBN & CBN & have not looked back. It’s amazing how all they’re secrets have come out, it saddens & disgusts me to listen to any of them, actually it angers me, lieing to the people & they just eat it up.
One time at my job, this preacher I was working on asked me if I tithe. I said no. He said, do you goto church? I said no again. He says you need to tithe, it makes the church grow. So I thought wow, who cares about souls right? Line your pocket instead, because out of the mouth proceeds the heart.
Great article to me it seems like so few see the truth.
