Don’t let anger over fundraising abuses take us back to a poverty mentality

Jesse Duplantis asked his partners for 54 million dollars for a new jet.  Duplantis is being roundly condemned for this.  Here’s what I have to say about that…

There is no way I would spend 54 million on a jet.  I sit up nights interceding about what I would do with a windfall.  I am wired totally different.  I have a plan from the Holy Spirit that involves signs and wonders, technology, multiplication, training, and mass invasion in dark and poor areas.

However, and some of you will not like this: Jesse is a man of God.  He loves God.  He loves people.  He says God told him to ask for this money.  So, unless you can show A: Where the Bible says he can’t, or shouldn’t ask.  B: You are willing to say God showed you Jesse is lying then don’t lump him in with the real fakes who are stealing money from the Body of Christ.

There are many abuses!  Anger over those abuses is threatening to do something awful.  It is the reason for my message.  We are seeing the return of a poverty mentality—a mentality that will make blanket condemnations, and undermine faith to believe God for the provisions we need to protect our loved ones and the weapons to win this nation back to God.  One man whom I know has been falsely accused is Kenneth Hagin.

Kenneth Hagin never taught, or used the term “prosperity gospel.”  In my opinion, he didn’t even teach word of faith—he simply taught the Word of God.  He took neglected truths and presented them in their proper scriptural order.

We had been subnormal so long that the return to normal looked abnormal.  His book The Midas Touch does an excellent job of exposing abuses and clarifying the Bible’s position on giving and receiving.

Here are the reasons we have no excuse to return to a poverty mentality:

Abuses do not nullify the promises of God!  Romans 3:3 asks a powerful question: “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?”  If someone abuses faith—abuses prosperity—abuses fundraising, they do it out of unbelief.  But their unbelief, and their abuses do not nullify the promises of God to prosper us.

Abundance is God’s idea not man’s:  The idea that God wants to give you abundance did not originate with some oily late night shyster.  Most importantly, the promise of abundance is for everyone who believes.

I was out to dinner with a very famous evangelist.  He had just returned from the Philippines.  “The poverty was so great” he said, “I simply couldn’t talk to them about prosperity.”  So I asked him gently, “were they also too sick to hear about healing?”

Jesus told the disciples of John, “tell John, the poor have the good news preached to them.”-Luke 7: 44

So I ask you what is the good news to the poor?  Let’s ask Jesus: Luke 4:18 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed.

For each of these groups Jesus promises is a benefit beyond salvation.  To the broken heart—a healed heart, to the captive—liberty, to the blind—sight, to the poor—provision.

Now you know why I receive offerings in the inner city.  I know that if the poor learn to become givers, they will see a miracle that will break the vicious cycle of poverty.

Overflow amounts are God’s idea not ours:  Jesus said, “Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

 

Look at the descriptions of the amounts: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. 

Look at another example of an overflowing amount is in 2 Corinthians 9:6 “…and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”  And we all know the words of Malachi “you will not have room to contain it.”

Why would Satan work so hard to pervert a beautiful truth right now?  He knows the danger of righteous people having much more than they need.  He knows what they will do with wealth.

There are a lot of angry Christians out there.  Some glorify their lack because they are jealous of those who have been bold to believe.  It’s like the older brother of the prodigal son who was angry and jealous that his brother was given a great feast:

Luke 15: 29 “So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends. 30 But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’ 31 “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.”  This brother never bothered to ask.

Instead of torturing yourself wondering why others are blessed—or sit around sulking about how much holier you would be with money than others…why don’t you surrender yourself to God—get rid of your unbelief and accept James’ explanation of your problem: “You have not because you ask not.”

Hagin warned against today’s materialistic gospel

Recent bizarre donation schemes brought the prosperity gospel back under the nation’s microscope. It’s time to revisit Hagin’s concerns and find a biblical balance.  Before he died in 2003 Kenneth Hagin summoned many of his colleagues to Tulsa to rebuke them for distorting his message. He was not happy that some of his followers were manipulating the Bible to support what he viewed as greed and selfish indulgence…

 

Before He died Kenneth Hagin warned against today’s materialistic gospel.

By J. Lee Grady

Charismatic Bible teacher Kenneth Hagin Sr. is considered the father of the so-called prosperity gospel. The folksy, self-trained “Dad Hagin” started a grass-roots movement in Oklahoma that produced a Bible college and a crop of famous preachers including Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Charles Capps, Jesse DuPlantis, Creflo Dollar and dozens of others—all of whom teach that Christians who give generously should expect financial rewards on this side of heaven.

Hagin taught that God was not glorified by poverty and that preachers do not have to be poor. But before he died in 2003 and left his Rhema Bible Training Center in the hands of his son, Kenneth Hagin Jr., he summoned many of his colleagues to Tulsa to rebuke them for distorting his message. He was not happy that some of his followers were manipulating the Bible to support what he viewed as greed and selfish indulgence.

Those who were close to Hagin Sr. say he was passionate about correcting these abuses before he died. In fact, he wrote a brutally honest book to address his concerns. The Midas Touch was published in 2000, a year after the infamous Tulsa meeting.

Many Word-Faith ministers ignored the book. But in light of the recent controversy over prosperity doctrines, it might be a good idea to dust it off and read it again.

Here are a few of the points Hagin made in The Midas Touch

1. Financial prosperity is not a sign of God’s blessing. Hagin wrote: “If wealth alone were a sign of spirituality, then drug traffickers and crime bosses would be spiritual giants. Material wealth can be connected to the blessings of God or it can be totally disconnected from the blessings of God.”

2. People should never give in order to get. Hagin was critical of those who “try to make the offering plate some kind of heavenly vending machine.” He denounced those who link giving to getting, especially those who give cars to get new cars or who give suits to get new suits. He wrote: “There is no spiritual formula to sow a Ford and reap a Mercedes.”

3. It is not biblical to “name your seed” in an offering. Hagin was horrified by this practice, which was popularized in faith conferences during the 1980s. Faith preachers sometimes tell donors that when they give in an offering they should claim a specific benefit to get a blessing in return. Hagin rejected this idea and said that focusing on what you are going to receive “corrupts the very attitude of our giving nature.”

4. The “hundredfold return” is not a biblical concept. Hagin did the math and figured out that if this bizarre notion were true, “we would have Christians walking around with not billions or trillions of dollars, but quadrillions of dollars!” He rejected the popular teaching that a believer should claim a specific monetary payback rate.

5. Preachers who claim to have a “debt-breaking” anointing should not be trusted. Hagin was perplexed by ministers who promise “supernatural debt cancellation” to those who give in certain offerings. He wrote in The Midas Touch: “There is not one bit of Scripture I know about that validates such a practice. I’m afraid it is simply a scheme to raise money for the preacher, and ultimately it can turn out to be dangerous and destructive for all involved.”

(Many evangelists who appear on Christian television today use this bogus claim. Usually they insist that the miraculous debt cancellation will occur only if a person “gives right now,” as if the anointing for this miracle suddenly evaporates after the prime time viewing hour. This manipulative claim is more akin to witchcraft than Christian belief.)

Hagin condemned other hair-brained gimmicks designed to trick audiences into emptying their wallets. He was especially incensed when a preacher told his radio listeners that he would take their prayer requests to Jesus’ empty tomb in Jerusalem and pray over them there—if donors included a special love gift. “What that radio preacher really wanted was more people to send in offerings,” Hagin wrote.

Thanks to the recent resurgence in bizarre donation schemes promoted by American charismatics, the prosperity gospel is back under the nation’s microscope. It’s time to revisit Hagin’s concerns and find a biblical balance.

Hagin told his followers: “Overemphasizing or adding to what the Bible actually teaches invariably does more harm than good.” If the man who pioneered the modern concept of biblical prosperity blew the whistle on his own movement, wouldn’t it make sense for us to listen to his admonition?

Don’t Bash Kenneth Hagin’s teachings. They have power to cure racism in the inner city.

 A middle school teacher rants to her students that the white man is responsible for everything that is wrong.  She even singles out white students in the class, telling them they’re responsible for what their ancestors did.
In New Orleans, a drive through restaurant adds a “white surcharge” because “there’s no way to fix white privilege except by charging white folk extra.”
What does it do to minority children when they are told they are victims?  How can anyone think it gives them motivation to try harder?  When you tell them all white people are evil, aren’t you teaching your child to be racist?
They end up feeling they only have two choices: A life of crime or dependency on government handouts.  Some will accuse me of taking complex problems of urban areas and giving simplistic solutions.  Need I remind you I was a Latino minority in the inner city?  I grew up in the violence, the poverty and the racism.
Some will challenge me to prove Brother Hagin’s word of faith is a key.  I will prove my point by asking one question—WHO IS YOUR SOURCE?

It was a central fact of Brother Hagin’s preaching…God is your source.  For the urban young person that means it’s not the government, not a drug, not crime—God is your source.
Some will say that kind of preaching is inappropriate for the inner city.  So I will tell you a story.  I was having dinner with a famous evangelist.  He had just returned from the Philippines.  “I couldn’t preach prosperity to them because they were so poor,” he told me.  I looked at him and asked, “Did you also not preach healing because they were too sick?”
We who are blessed, secretly think  God’s promise to prosper starts at the middle class level.  When you think about it—that’s silly.
If a child, any child, meets Jesus in power, they are a new creation.  Who are you or I to say they are not entitled to all of the same blessings we enjoy just because they are starting from a much lower circumstance?  “Whosoever will” does not stop at salvation. It applies to every level of our walk with God.
Again, Brother Hagin taught that God is your source.  But what does that do about racism?  We have already seen that racism will never end by getting back at the racist.  All that does is create a new racism.  The anger in urban areas is rooted in poverty and lack of opportunity.
So how does the word of faith kill racism at the root?  Because when you say that God is the source of your provision, you are also saying that Satan is the source of your lack.    That is when you stop blaming man—any man—for your lack.

The next thing that Brother Hagin taught was the authority of the Word of God over inner feelings and outward circumstances.  Today, too many Christians go by how they feel or by how things are going for them.  In the inner city that is even more intense.
Self-pity is the most potent drug in the inner city.  When the revelation that you are a redeemed child of God hits you—not matter what is happening or how you feel—you can conquer your surroundings.
Just because we don’t know how God will lead someone out of unspeakable addiction into victory—just because we don’t know how the jobs, education and opportunity will unfold—is not an excuse to hold back the entire Gospel!
I know there are those who have abused Kenneth Hagin’s teachings, (the fact is, everyone’s teaching has been abused) but that does not justify rejection of truth—truth that has the power to transform racism into love and poverty into prosperity.

HALLELUJAH!

By Mario Murillo

The prayers of the saints have been answered.  Hallelujah!  Political Correctness is done.  Hallelujah!  The evangelical vote is back!  Hallelujah!  Israel has a new friend. Hallelujah!  The Swamp will be drained.  Hallelujah!  The justice that our government refused to deliver came from the people.  Hallelujah!   Abortion has a new enemy.  Hallelujah!   A leader will work for us and not our enemies.  Hallelujah!   The Supreme Court will be saved.  Hallelujah!

The people have repudiated the Obama legacy.  Hallelujah!  Obamacare will be replaced.  Hallelujah!   America has been spared.  Hallelujah!  Instead of filth, there will be faith in the White House.  Hallelujah!  The House, the Senate, and the President will work together for hard working Americans.  Hallelujah!  Outreach ministries are safe from the IRS.  Hallelujah!  A corrupt mainstream media has been discredited and neutralized. Hallelujah!

When I first began blogging about Donald Trump 18 months ago, pastors told me I could not preach in their church anymore.  A Christian television network banned me.   I was called racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic and many names I won’t publish.

donald-trump

Even more insidious, were minister friends close to me who accused me of abandoning my calling.  They said I needed to be winning souls and not speaking out politically.  Instead, I did both.  I exhausted myself winning souls, and prophesying against the wickedness in Washington.

I went to God every day.  I trusted Him!   He repeatedly said, “keep going son.  Keep speaking out!”  When old sources of finances dried up, God opened new ones.  When pulpits closed to me new doors opened. 

To the bitter end, most preachers refused to stand and be counted.   That is something they must live with.  However, a remnant declared the truth and faced the onslaught.  I am so proud of the voices that spoke out!   I am no hero.   I am but one of many who simply obeyed.

I give all of the glory for my strength, my fellow warriors, and for this miracle for America to Jesus Christ.

Today, you are indeed, witnessing a singular miracle in American history.  Donald Trump faced insanely impossible resistance.  He was pronounced dead again and again.  Today, he stands with humility, on the cusp of making America Great Again. Hallelujah!

Let thousands see your Hallelujah.  Leave a comment and say Hallelujah!

Today, you’ll hear terrifying things about our government. But it may be a miracle.

 

Today, you’ll hear terrifying things about our government. But it may be a miracle.

By Mario Murillo

In the next few hours you are going to hear some truly terrifying things about our government.  Today you will find out things you were never supposed to know.  An avalanche of facts will confirm some of our worst fears and God’s great mercy.

Remember when you thought the president was supposed to protect us?  Remember when you thought the Department of Justice was supposed to bring justice?  Remember when you thought the State Department was supposed to keep us safe?

Well sit down…because here comes the truth: We have not had a democracy for 8 years.  We have been led by a junta—a crime family.  They have finally been outed.

Here is what you already know:

CNN fed debate questions to Hillary Clinton.

George Soros owns voting machines.

Barack Obama ordered the FBI not to indict Hillary and stopped them from convening a Grand Jury to indict the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton campaign paid people to start fights at Trump rallies.

Facebook, Google and Twitter conspired to manipulate information to place Hillary in a good light and Trump in a bad light.  They lied and censored to advance her campaign.

We know that 65% of all Americans believe Hillary has broken federal law.

We know that 53% believe it was wrong not to indict her.

Today you are going to find out how deep and wide this collusion really is.  You get to meet the many tentacled beast.

These people did not merely blur the Separation of Powers Act of the Constitution…they removed it.  They formed a legislative monopoly—one that pools power and freely operates above the law.

One of the first to discover this was Bernie Sanders.  Only, they scared him so badly that he is terrified to tell us the truth—he even turned on his own supporters.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice, the State Department, the IRS and our mass media, newspapers, magazines and social media including Google, Facebook and Twitter all work together.  They collaborate… they plan things.

hillary-and-obama-pic-575x380

This was how John Podesta could tell Hillary every move the DOJ was making in advance.  Then it all came out in the open.

We now know that at least 5 nations have hacked and now own Hillary Clinton’s emails.

We now know there is a 99% chance that Bill and Hillary Clinton will be indicted for criminal activity involving hundreds of millions of dollars.  They are under suspicion for selling influence to enrich themselves.  They sold favors to nations that are sworn enemies of the U.S.!

We are still at the tip of the iceberg.  James Comey has been aware of this information for almost a year.  He has even more information…enough to fill an ocean liner.   He finally caved and sent a letter to Congress to announce he was reopening the Clinton email investigation.

Why did Comey brave the wrath of the ruling family?  Because  “Rogue”  FBI agents couldn’t take the filth, lies and abuse of power on the American people anymore.  They forced Comey’s hand.  These agents are true American heroes.

While I do not condone stealing emails, we must admit that WikiLeaks was key in finding out things we never would have known.  If it were not for Fox News you would not see it on television.

Today you will be hearing things even Thomas Wolfe could not put in a scandalous novel.  Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might as you hear the horrifying reality that God is trying to spare us from.  A tidal wave of information will be coming out within hours.

Again, you were never supposed to find out about this.  I believe this is an answer to the prayers of the saints.  You had better realize you have been given a miracle.  If you and I do not seize this miracle, then we deserve all the tyranny that Hillary will hand out.

Today I believe God has had mercy on us to expose this before the election.  Time to dump Bill and Hillary like nuclear waste…and drain the swamp.

The Shocking Reason millions of born again Christians will still vote for Hillary

The Shocking Reason millions of born again Christians will still vote for Hillary

By Mario Murillo

She is a smooth criminal. She is the consort of a sexual addict.  She is chugging the longest train of scandal and lawlessness in history toward the White House.  Box cars overflow with federal crimes, defilement, unexplained deaths, pathological lies, and an insatiable lust for power.  She wants the savagery of late term abortion.  She believes marriage is between a man and anything.

However, the greatest horror resides in the caboose: She will feed and expand the cancer of Obama’s policies.  Thus, she will turn up the blood-letting of government spending and doom our children.  Our foreign policy will be one big blazing Benghazi. Our Supreme Court will become a left-wing meat grinder. Obamacare is dead; no mind, she will manage the morgue so the corpse putrefies our health care system indefinitely.

Say you wanted to craft the quintessential anti-Christian candidate. Monger a politician that is the most anti-Bible, anti-church, anti-Israel, anti-God human being on the planet: thy name is Hillary Clinton.

Yet, with all of this, millions of born again, holiness, tongue-talking, Bible-thumping Christians are dutifully and catatonically pulling the lever for her.   She has also said that religious beliefs need to be changed.  Think of that…she would change Christian beliefs and millions of Christians will help her do it.

Maybe you’ll do it because you are more feminist, union, or minority than you are Christian.

The article in Dallas Morning News reads: “I am a pro-life Christian woman voting for Hillary.”  The author Shannon Dingle says, “So buckle up, y’all. We’re in for a ride.”  Sadly, I took the ride and it was even murkier by the end than it was at the beginning.

hillaryabortion-1

The polls say 80% percent of all African Americans will vote for Hillary.  Thirty-eight million of them live in the U.S. Do you think for a moment, 80% of the black Christians you know are anti-Bible?

We also know that many Christian white women are for Hillary.  Women who listen to Joyce Meyers, women who attend prophetic conferences, women who pray in tongues…yet, still, they will vote Clinton.

One of the biggest reasons for this breathtaking contradiction will shock you: IT IS MODERN PREACHING. Have you even wondered why your pastor is not warning you that we are about to lose our nation forever?  Have you not noticed the blinding contradiction when your pastor says he believes in the Word of God and then tells you to vote for Hillary?

The preaching that allows believers to act in opposition to their faith comes in many packages.  But they all carry these traits.

  1. It teaches there is a higher standard than the Bible.  This comes at you in all kinds of ways. There is the preaching that omits scripture.  There is the preaching that magically mixes opposing ideas so they fit together in blissful repose, i.e. Chrislam.  You don’t even notice the teaching is not anchored to the Bible.

The Bible may be diminished by a pastor.  They say things like: “I still revere scripture but the modern mind finds it objectionable so we must downplay it.”

Then there are Spirit-filled teachers who imply—or outright say—that personal prophetic words or supernatural encounters trump the Bible.

Is there any wonder millions of Christians sitting under such verbiage lack the moral clarity to do the right thing in this election?

hillary vicious

 

2. It desperately wants cultural acceptance.   So much of the confusing waffling you hear from celebrity pastors is not a conviction; it is a need for acceptance from the culture.  When virtually every news outlet, Hollywood, pop stars and secular universities are in lockstep with Hillary, the pressure to conform is overwhelming.

A pastor tosses his Bible values and suddenly becomes a darling to millions who declare that pastor open-minded, inclusive and tolerant.

Regardless of how glaring the evil, this preaching refuses to offend.  Joel Osteen said to Larry King, “I know Homosexuality is a sin but I am not going to preach it.”

Here is preaching that calculates truth with a wet finger raised to cultural breezes instead of a heart that discerns the wind of the Holy Spirit.

Moral clarity is almost nonexistent. If it is gone from the sermon, small wonder it is gone from the voting booth.

3. It teaches elitism that exempts Christians from consequences.  This pernicious teaching places the Christian above Scripture, above consequence and even above God.

It begins with true statements about the authority of the believer or the wonders of the love and grace of God.  The teacher, seeing the delight he awakens in his audience, increases the dosage beyond Bible limits.

Soon you are hearing that you never have to repent of sin.  You hear of astounding dominion you have over all of the earth.  You are fed a constant diet of how God is so, so into you.

You are too valuable to suffer (like other Christians around the world).  No matter how bad it looks, you do not have to worry or take action because God will simply take care of it all.

Revival becomes “if God wants it” and not “if my people.”

jmOneNationUnderSocialism 001

Will Christians be judged by God for voting for Hillary?  Eric Metaxas not only thinks so…he makes a compelling appeal for voting for Donald Trump:

“How do I squirm out of this horrific conundrum? It’s unavoidable: We who can vote must answer to God for these people, whom He loves. We are indeed our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.

We would be responsible for passively electing someone who champions the abomination of partial-birth abortion, someone who is celebrated by an organization that sells baby parts. We already live in a country where judges force bakers, florists and photographers to violate their consciences and faith—and Mrs. Clinton has zealously ratified this. If we believe this ends with bakers and photographers, we are horribly mistaken. No matter your faith or lack of faith, this statist view of America will dramatically affect you and your children.

For many of us, this is very painful, pulling the lever for someone many think odious. But please consider this: A vote for Donald Trump is not necessarily a vote for Donald Trump himself. It is a vote for those who will be affected by the results of this election. Not to vote is to vote. God will not hold us guiltless.”

Hillary just said this about the new FBI investigation of her: “People Have Already “Factored” In Emails in How They Think about Me.”  She also believes this is true of millions of born Christians.  have factored what she is but they will vote for her anyway.
