Beware of Today's Preachers!

On Sunday July 22, 2007 I was attending church.  As I went to sit down in my pew after the worship portion of the service was over, I unexpectedly heard God speak these words very clearly and sternly to me: “Get your Bible and your things and LEAVE NOW!!!”  Woah, I was SHOCKED!  But believe me … I KNOW the Lord’s voice, so I immediately got my things together and embarrassedly ran out of there like the building was on fire! Now, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the Lord speak to you directly, but if you have, you know there is always additional understanding that follows His few spoken words.  Well, such was the case this day … for even as I was fleeing the church, I knew what He was telling me was He didn’t want me attending ANY church buildings anymore!  And I obeyed, and am still obeying to this day.

Then, less than 5 months later, on the Saturday Sabbath morning of December 8, 2007, I awoke to the powerful presence of the Spirit of the Lord revealing to me the incredible meaning behind the Israelite's bondage-to-Promise Land story.  It was information I had NEVER heard from ANY minister on TV or in ALL my years of church going.  It was knowledge I didn’t even know existed in God’s Word!  I again was SHOCKED!  And the rest is history … much more incredible Biblical understanding, the book, the website, the videos, this blog, and now technology where I am able to contact over 400 new people everyday with this message.  No doubt, it’s been a remarkable journey!

Now listen, I’m not advocating people run from their churches.  I’ve written this blog to bear witness to what’s happened to me, because people online continually ask me, “Do you go to church, and if so, where?”  So now I can simply point them to this blog, which will save me time in answering the many emails I get each day.  But I do want to say the following in all sincerity and concern for you: Be VERY WARY of whom you listen to expound on God’s Word, for Satan has concocted many subtly false and disastrous doctrines that he speaks through preacher’s mouths in today’s churchianity world.  The point of these doctrines is threefold: (1) to make you believe obtaining eternal life is a sure thing from something you prayed or mentally acknowledge, (2) to remove your fear of God, (3) and then to lessen your desire and concern for having to live righteously.  The end result is … you remain FULL of pride (selfishness), love your earthly life, and willfully sin (disobey the 10 love commandments) at every step, all the while attending church each week and thinking you are fine and on your way to heaven, when the reality is you are fumbling and stumbling like a drunkard headfirst towards the precipice of hell!

None of this should surprise you though, for the VERY SAME THINGS (deceptive and destructive demonic doctrines) were being told through preacher's mouths in Jesus’ day. Listen to Christ confront them about it: “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you shut the door of the Kingdom of Heaven in people’s faces. You won’t go in yourselves, and you don’t let others enter either. What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you shamelessly cheat widows out of their property and then pretend to be pious by making long prayers in public. Because of this, you will be severely punished. What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you cross land and sea to make one convert, and then you turn that person into twice the child of hell you yourselves are!” (Matthew 23:13-15).  I’ll leave it to you to discern how these EXACT SAME THINGS are happening today!  But please, please, for the love of the eternal destiny of your soul, beware of today’s preachers my dear friends: "Beware of the deceptive teachings of the Pharisees and Sadducees" - Jesus (Matthew 16:6)

  1. Sooo goood, brother! God has done this in our lives as well. We wanted to go to church a couple weeks ago. We knew where God had directed us to go over a year ago. So we went there. The pastor took the pulpit and began by saying that it offended him a little to have to preach on tithing, but he need to. We looked at each other and knew it wasn't God's word then, and we left.

  2. Hi Dawn. Good for you. I just want people to be aware of how SERIOUS a choice it is where they decide to go to church (if at all!) and listen to someone dispense their "understanding" of the Bible to them. It is a VERY SERIOUS thing, because it will shape how they live their life, which will ultimately determine where they spend eternity! I tremble for those "preachers" who are leading people away from the true knowledge of God.

  3. Those preachers WILL have to answer to Abba for leading the sheep astray.

    There are a lot of false teachers out there. I truly believe we are seeing the foretold falling away.

    Regarding tithing, Dawn. Our pastor refuses to preach on it and he has taken some heat for that stance. He is recognizing more and more how we follow the traditions of men. It is going to be interesting to see what YHWH does!

  4. Abigail, I have noticed that preachers mostly take this subject to the pulpit when their church budgets or building projects need funds. It amazes me how the example they set is not one of looking to Abba for provision and direction, but rather going right to the people and ask them to pay for their over spending. The government does the same thing by raising taxes.

  5. Dawn...it would help if we did not acquire large buildings and lots of debt. There are much less expensive ways for people to gather. Then more money could go to meeting needs rather than to buildings.

  6. It should be preached if it's in the Bible. Especially if the storehouse is lacking. "6For I am the LORD, I change not...8Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings. 9You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed me, even this whole nation. 10Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house," Malachi 3
