Writers Note: We challenge any
theologian or Bible scholar, Preacher etc. to present any scripture that
support Prosperity Ministries. Please advise us with the Commentary, Scripture
etc. The FreedomJournal argues that Prosperity Ministries are blasphemy to the
Word of God. Thus we bear witness that Prosperity Ministers are False Prophets
and liars of the highest order.

BECOME RICH, BUT LET GOD DO IT.

Part 3: The Bible And False
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
Our daily prayer is
for God to grant us wisdom and knowledge. We do not pray for material
possessions. We declare that the Truth of God through wisdom and knowledge is
foremost in the hearts and minds of the believers. Therefore we bear witness
that Prosperity Ministries are messages from False Prophets. If you go to
church to gain wealth and material possessions you are on your way to Hell.
Ministries are Hell bound, this includes the so-called Ministers and the
foolish congregations that follow them. Smooth talking Devils that can quote
and teach the Bible have invaded the churches and have literally taken over the
TV Ministries. Do these people follow the Bible? Do these people follow a
pattern of mis-interpretations of the Bible? Please be informed that there are
NO Scriptures that support Prosperity Ministries. This article will hopefully
inform those that are ignorant. We also realize that many do not want to know
In both of the
previous articles we have noted that many of the first Black Preachers in
America were chosen by the slave masters. We have also noted why the slave
master chose certain Blacks to be Preachers. Thus it is logical to conclude
that Preachers chosen by man in the flesh were False Prophets.
Here we see the
precedents for buffoonery and blasphemy in the Black church. Also, we see a
relationship of buffoonery, blasphemy and False Prophets. Can you become a
legitimate God-fearing Preacher and not be called by God? Can man-made chosen

questions concerning the relationship of man and God are found in the Bible.
record man can talk to God through prayer and meditation. Also, the Holy Spirit
plays a part in directing the lives of Christians and speaks to the Heart.
However, the Bible is the primary means of communication with God. We realize
this because the Bible is the written word of God.
The word Bible is
taken from the Greek word biblos meaning book. This Book is composed of
sixty-six separate books. It is a collection of ancient Hebrew and Christian
writings. The order of the sixty-six books in the Old Testament and the New
Testament is a logical one. These books offer a consecutive history of mankind
from the story of the Creation in the first chapter of Genesis to the visionary
future of the book of Revelation.
No doubt the Truth
of God is found in the Bible. However, instead of Truth the False Prophets
speak what the people want to hear. Meanwhile, they are an obstacle to the true
word of God. They also contradict the true Prophets. Sadly also, we see
messages from False Prophets that appeal to the people's sinful nature.
The Prophecy of
Almighty God as revealed in the Book of Revelation also gives an explanation of
what is a false prophet. Revelation 13:11 reveals that the beast that comes out
of the earth is the false prophet. This beast seems to be of good and kind
spirit but he comes to deceive and to do evil.
In the book of
Deuteronomy (13:1-3) in the Old Testament, Moses as inspired by God warns the
Israelites against false prophets who encouraged the worship of other gods.

And the sign or the
wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other
gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them:

hearken unto the word so that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: For the Lord
your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your
heart and with all your soul."
There are many
attractive so-called Ministers involved in TV Ministries. These Ministries are
often projected as great healers and messengers of God. God is not against new
ideas, but God is against any doctrine that contradicts the Word of God. The
worship of Prosperity is akin to idol worship. Thus many new ideas may sound
good, but are they of God? Be aware of Ministers that are worldly in relating
the parallels of the love of God with the love of man and woman.
If is for sure that
False Prophets can speak truth but direct you toward themselves. Therefore, it
is possible to say the right words and still lead people in the wrong
direction. We appeal to all of the people of God that truly seek the knowledge
of God: "Examine new ideas closely and compare them to the Word of
In the Book of Matthew
(24: 11-12, 23-24) in the New Testament Jesus teaches on the Mount of Olives.
Jesus also tells about the future:
(11) "And many
false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
(12) And because
iniquity shall abound the love of many shall wax cold.
(23) Then if any
man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or thee, believe it not.
(24) For there
shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and
that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
It is not a new
revelation to see the false prophecy of health and wealth. False Prophets and
False Teaching existed during the time of Jesus and they still exist today. The
ungodly Prosperity Ministers and Hustlers often state that "God wants, you
to be rich." False teaching also brings loose morals. The worldly
influence of sin contradicts love for God. The smooth-talking Preacher often
does not agree with God's message in the Bible. Thus, he distorts it.
Christians need a solid foundation to perceive the errors and falsehoods of
references are also noted in the Old Testament See: 2 Kings 3:13, Isaiah 44:25,
Jeremiah 23:16, Ezekiel 13:2-3, Micah 3:5, Zechariah 13:2.
The Apostle Paul
warns about false teaching in 1 Timothy 1: 3, 4, 5. This scripture warns us
about the attempts by Satan and false prophets to get us side tracked from the
Truth of God. Thus arguing about unnecessary subjects that relate to the
church. It is for sure that false teachers are motivated by curiosity, power
and prestige. In contrast genuine Christian teachers are motivated by love,
truth and faith.
1 Timothy 4: 1-5
further reveal instruction for elders, and Paul gives guidelines for teaching.
Here Paul declares that false teachers are devil inspired. Satan deceives
people by offering clear imitations of the real thing. They make stringent
rules, for example forbidding people to marry and to eat meat. Look to the
Bible for your answers and not to false teachers who mis-quote the Bible.
