The Problem with Prophets


It is hard to tune into "Christian" media these days without encountering a self proclaimed prophet.  They all claim to hear the voice of God, yet they all have different messages many contradict each other.  There is one consistent point in all their proclamations, if you give them money, you will get rich.

These "prophets" then turn to their own lives as an example of how this divine pyramid scheme works.  How amazing! If you tell people to send you money so they will get rich, you will get rich; then somehow you get rich off the backs of the poor who send you their hard earned money.  That is not a miracle. It is little more than vile theft from the poor to line your own pockets.

So what happens if you get caught and imprisoned for embezzling money from your so called religious institution?  What do you do when you have been exposed as a fraud who is only interested in lining your own pockets?  You scare people into giving you money. Manufacturing fake crises and lying about future mayhem so you can sell disaster preparedness kits.  How do you justify your lies in the name of God to enrich yourself?

September 2015 was supposed to be the end, with violence and collapse in the Great convergence (see here, here, here, and here). The world did not end. The earthquake didn't come. The stock market did not crash. You scared people in the Name of God to buy buckets of freeze dried food.  You invited your followers to party as the world is falling apart.  

You did this to line your own pockets with ill gotten gains stolen through fear from your followers.

Oh, if only you were the only one who worshiped Money over the Lord of Life!

The God and Father of Jesus Christ is not the God of Fear and Division!

True Fear of the Lord or Yirah is trembling awe in the face of God's Power and Nature, it is not scaring the money out of people's pockets to line your own.  We believers have no reason to fear.

If you don't believe me, listen to Christ:

Therefore, I tell you, don’t be anxious for your life, what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor yet for your body, what you will put on. Isn’t life more than food, and the body more than clothing? See the birds of the sky, that they don’t sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you of much more value than they? Which of you, by being anxious, can add one cubit to the measure of his life? Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don’t toil, neither do they spin, yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, won’t he much more clothe you, you of little faith? Therefore don’t be anxious, saying, ‘What will we eat?’, ‘What will we drink?’ or, ‘With what will we be clothed?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first God’s Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be added to you.

Therefore don’t be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day’s own evil is sufficient.
— Jesus, Matthew 6:25-34

And since some prefer the words of Paul over those of Christ:

In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. The peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
— Paul, Philippians 4:6-7

It couldn't be clearer.  Fear paralyzes, but faith drives action. If you knew the God and Father of Jesus Christ, you would know that we serve a God who is Love, Compassion, however you want to translate the Greek.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God. He who doesn’t love doesn’t know God, for God is love. By this was God’s love revealed in us, that God has sent his only born Son into the world that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Beloved, if God loved us so, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we remain in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as the Savior of the world. Whoever will confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him, and he in God. We know and have believed the love which God has in us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. In this love has been made perfect with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, even so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.
— John, 1 John 4:7-18

The God you proclaim is not the Father of Jesus Christ.  There is no love in your words, there is only fear.  Fear flees from the prayerful life of a disciple of Christ who meditates day and night on the Nature of God and lives through the power of the Divine Energies flowing through them.  You proclaim nothing but Pride, Fear, and Envy, and the punch line is always the same.  Give us your money, only we can save you.  In your actions, your god is revealed.

You Preachers of Fear worship God Money

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. You can’t serve both God and Mammon.
— Jesus, Matthew 6:24

Woe to you who fleece your followers in service of the Mighty Dollar while proclaiming the Name of Jesus.  I beg of you, cast this darkness from your heart. Only the vilest beast stokes the fears of others to take their money from them. I know you will not hear these words, and if you do, you will simply mock them.

I ask the community of the faithful to rise up against you, and show their friends and family why you do not deserve their money.  You are liars and frauds.  You bring nothing but harm into this world, but the Power of God lives through the faithful and through our love, we will cast out your fear.
