Flee from the witchcraft of Mike Murdoch!

21 Comments

If I get a little emotional with the following, please excuse me. This has really gotten me angry. Thousands of Christians are duped in to this stuff. Let’s face it, it is either their desperation or greed that leads them to men like Murdoch. I’ve only transcribed parts of it, but the whole thing is one big fat manipulation to line the pockets of Mike Murdock.

“What you can walk away from, you have mastered.”

Does that mean if someone can walk away from this apostate without being manipulated by his witchcraft/manipulation to give him one dime, then you have mastered him? YES! So flee from this heretic and be free!

“Nothing happens until you use your faith. Nothin’, nothin’, nothin. God’s not moved by tears.”

Really?

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all. — Psalm 34:17-19 —

Not once is it mentioned in the Word of God that you have to perform for man, in order to receive God’s help or blessing.

Mike Murdock wants you to believe unless you sow in his minstry by sending him lots of money, God is not going to help you. This places the ministry above God! As if Mike Murdock is the mediator between you and God!

“For me, a thousand dollar seed, is proof that you have conquered greed.”

This would be laughable, if it were not so serious. Why should anyone prove anything to Mike Murdock?! We do not answer to him! His manipulation tells me he is the greedy one here!

Again: “What I can walk away from, I have mastered. What I can’t walk away from, has mastered me.”

Decide now: Who are you going to walk away from? Mike Murdock and men like him or Jesus? You can not have it both ways. For Mike Murdock is of his father, the devil. The truth is not in him. 

“I like new money…when I give things to people, I like to give stacks of money…the most beautiful thing on earth, is a hundred dollar bill. I ain’t seen a woman on earth as good looking as a hundred dollar bill. There’s something about that hundred dollar bill that excites ya.”

He has just from his own mouth told us his god is money. The stacks of money he refers to, is the money his followers send in. If You follow him, how does it feel to know that you are giving to a materalistic, greedy, conniving, manipulating, lying, cheating snake oil salesman?

“He said,’We don’t give, to get something back.’ Oh yes, we do.”

Such greed here. Do you give in hopes you get some thing back? Or do you just give? I never feel obligated to give anything. Sometimes our motives for giving are wrong in the first place. I’m not going to tell you the Christian must give, give, give. We are to always be led by God.   

Does this also mean if a brother who is in prison for the true faith in another country, were to somehow slip out a dollar bill to Murdock, that he could expect lots of money? Church, if it isn’t true all over the world, then it is not true at all! Oh, the apostacy here in America. God will judge it. 

Nothing he is saying is from the mouth of God, and I say here, an evil spirit actually makes itself known:

“My biggest fear is going to hell with all the stupid people in one place. I think I could handle the fire, it’s all the fools, at the same place. That makes you want to go to heaven, doesn’t it? I can hardly take one idiot much less all of them in one place.”

Unless Mike Murdock repents from his witchcraft, he will find out whether or not he can handle the fire. In the meantime, do not be one of the fools he is talking about by following him there.

A Mom loses her Baby and later concludes The Word of Faith teaching is equivalent to Witchcraft

11 Comments

When I read the following, it reminded me of my own loss of a baby. I was only at six weeks in my pregnancy when I miscarried. The day I found out I was going to have a baby was the happiest day of my life, next to my wedding day. I’ll never forget what that was like. But soon those hopes and expectations began to slowly crumble as something went wrong in my body. I had well meaning Christian women back then tell me, “Do not fear or the thing you fear will come upon you.” One particular woman came over to bring me a loaf of home made bread. She prayed for me, more or less telling me not to fear or I would cause the baby to die. I had people rebuking the devil off me and my baby. “It is not God’s will that you lose this baby. You must fight against it.” I would look at some of these women — some of them who homeschooled their children — and who had given birth at home through midwives — and thought to myself, surely they know what they are talking about, because they have children. I made the mistake of thinking they were somehow more spiritual just because they were a mother.

I did not want to be responsible for my baby’s death, so I did my best rebuking the devil, claiming the baby for God, through the pain and blood that miscarrying brings. Two friends, who were not in the name -it claim -it gospel, lovingly spoke to me, telling me it was not my fault, that it was ok to let go. I had not told them, but a day or so before, I had an impression that God was trying to let me know the same thing.

After it was all over with and I was able to go back to Church, I felt very conspicuous. It felt like other women were thinking along these lines: “There’s the woman who could not pray enough for her baby. She didn’t try hard enough. Because she was afraid, her worse fear came upon her. If only she had enough faith.” Whether anyone actually thought this, I don’t know. But if a woman had people telling her somehow it is within her power through what they call faith, to stop a miscarriage, then what else is a woman to think?

We do not always know the reasons behind things. I spent a number of years asking God “why?” “Why not give me a baby? Why do you let others have babies and not me?” At almost 60 years old, I no longer ask. I am content now. It does not matter to me anymore. One day I will know and it all will make complete sense. What does bother me though, are the many barren women out there who for some reason or another find yourself in the same place I was years ago. You have people telling you the same things I was told. Do not let people tell put this upon you. It is not only a form of witchcraft, it completely ignores God’s sovereignty. His ways are higher than ours.

On “Word of Faith” or “Believing Prayer” Movements

I’ve picked on the occult, media, Messianic Judaism, Harry Potter, and Beth Moore. I’ve picked on “spiritual disciplines”, tithing, and missionaries, “Purpose-Driven”/Emerging churches, pragmatism, Biblical authority, ecumenism, and a variety of Christian-living topics.

But until now I haven’t picked on the one topic that can make me mad as a hornet, quicker than anything (which surprises me, actually). I am usually passionate, though diplomatic about topics, even more so when speaking to non-Christians.

I enjoy the mutual exchanging of questions and learning about other people (but I do not like accusations). This subject however, brings a lot of personal emotions to the surface because I lived this worldview for a brief and very painful time.

Putting my faith in sincere and well-intentioned spiritual elders, my spouse and I bought into this worldview hook, line, and sinker at the start of our young marriage, and especially when our first-born was diagnosed with a fatal heart anomaly in utero.

We were promised that “if we had faith” (if we believed hard enough) God would have to heal her. We read in proponents’ books, about certain “spiritual laws” that God was bound by (ha!). We were told that only certain people must be told about the baby’s condition; those discerning few who really knew how to pray “correctly” for her; to “pray believing”.

Here is an example (from CBN’s website) on how to pray believing for “your personal” miracle (though they give themselves an out by not guaranteeing your desired outcome). http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/CBNTeachingSheets/Can_I_Be_Healed.aspx

To my eternal regret, we hurt and deceived a lot of people by essentially lying about the baby’s condition, because if you admitted there was a problem, even allowed yourself the tiniest thought there might be a problem, you wouldn’t get your miracle (in New Age circles this idea is called “positive thinking” to an extreme, and obviously unhealthy end).

In my naiveté and desperate hope, I clung to the belief my baby would live even after she lay dead in my husband’s arms. I firmly believed God would bring her back from the dead (and I know now how crazy this all sounds) and awe all the nay-saying doctors.

It wasn’t until her graveside funeral a week later, when we pulled up to the outdoor awning and I saw her casket, that reality finally hit me. It hit me so hard I refused to get out of the car. I didn’t want that reality; that was not what I had worked and prayed and vainly hoped and “believed in faith” so hard for.

But the death of my Elizabeth Ann nearly nine years ago, has spurred me to look before I leap, and research and study my Bible harder than ever. I can now say unequivocally that the Word of Faith movement doesn’t work based on my experience, and it is very un-Biblical.

The most hurtful thing after Elizabeth’s death was the lack of apology on the part of those who had pushed their beliefs so hard. Rather than admitting the obvious (this system failed), they pulled away from my husband and I and grew distant and remained quiet. Worst of all, they continue to believe in and promote this garbage.

That is when I become very angry. The same people who convinced me of their beliefs and themselves held my dead baby or attended or spoke at the funeral, refuse to admit their mistake and seem intent on dragging other people through the hell that I went through.

It may just be my perception, but it appears this movement is growing. Take note however: this movement is merely witchcraft* in disguise. The idea of having to say prayer in a particular (i.e. ritualistic, formulaic, or prescribed) manner is a key occult practice; they call it incantation or spell-casting. The idea that God must abide by/is bound by certain rules He laid out in His creation seems blasphemous-we can never be God’s puppeteers. But this is also a key occult practice; trying to bend the natural or supernatural world and its residents to a “knowledgeable” (i.e. magician) human will.

A third underlying idea is that of keeping secrets, or being made to feel elite in the secret mysteries and understandings of God. The word “occult” literally means “hidden”, and there have always been a plethora of secret societies and mystery religions.

But Christianity is not one of them. The Bible is a collection of historical accounts on all the ways the God of the Bible has revealed Himself to people (not just the Israelites) throughout the ages. Daniel 2:47 says God is a “revealer of mysteries”. As God He could be mysterious, but He desires to be known by us and has revealed Himself for our benefit (http://www.gci.org/god/is2).

Other occult aspects that a particular Word of Faith group may or may not be involved in include divination (reading “signs from God” in tea leaves, hair, wood, screen doors, bird migration patterns, bones, entrails, etc.); protective amulets and talismans including lucky charms, blessed cross necklaces and the like (see: http://www.amuletgifts.com/Christian-Amulets/); astrology (reading the stars to determine God’s path for your life, like horoscopes); “special” prayers, blessings, or adjurations (words against demons) to bring health, wealth, children, etc. (like this: http://www.thejabezprayer.com/); music, scents (candles, oils, or incense-also known as aromatherapy), gems, or herbs with purported (i.e. not scientifically backed) properties/powers/abilities, especially in the area of healing or cleansing the spirit (see: http://www.tbnwebstore.org/product.asp?sku=0793573777690 or http://www.abbaoil.com/c-9-anointing-oil.aspx); rituals or formulaic practices for better communion with God, protection, healing, cleansing, etc. (labyrinths, special prayer routines, meditation/contemplative practices, spiritual disciplines, extreme positive thinking, being in God’s presence**, etc. etc.)

(A few examples: http://www.christianbook.com/soul-detox-clean-living-contaminated-world/craig-groeschel/9780310333685/pd/333685?event=1010SG|1154706|1010

Understand those who practice these things generally have a scripture or two or three that appear to back their position. After having studied my Bible a bit better, I have come to the realization that God did not fail my family, false prophets did.

It is so vital to not just read a passage in context of its sentence, but in some cases whole sections and even several chapters are needed to understand it in full (this is where many devotional books and Bible studies fail).

If you want to get to know God better, simple prayer and Bible reading is the only way to do it. It is not glamorous and will not usually involve an experience. It will not cater to our human nature to act on or do something. And the Bible does not promise health, wealth, protection, or mysteries to unravel. The only way to “spiritually detox” is through repentance, forgiveness, and the grace of the cross.

*It is rather ironic that practitioners of this movement like to define rebellion as synonymous with “witchcraft”, based on the misunderstanding of 1 Sam. 15:23 (here is an example of this misunderstanding turned “ministry”: http://www.mcleanministries.com/custom.html).

**Being “in God’s presence” or inviting the Holy Spirit “to come” is a nice, super-Christian thought. But if we are Christians, the Bible says we have the Holy Spirit (which is God) living in us, Romans 8:11, Acts 2:4, John 3:34, and John 20:22.

Therefore, we cannot invite the Holy Spirit to come more, nor can we purposefully cultivate a sense of God’s presence. These are merely emotional or supernatural highs that we can easily become addicted to. Remember also the Bible also describes a deceptive Satan and demons, as well as God and His angels.

Below are a host of other sources for your researching pleasure, but as always please do balanced research and always read your Bible in context. (Note: the last link is to a book I was given to read and be “inspired” by for my “faith”)

Joel Osteen’s New Age Life Now?

5 Comments

http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-times/article.php?articleid=6645

By Brannon Howse

“Whatever you conceive you can achieve.”

With this favorite karma-changing promise, New Agers believe you need only use the “unlimited” power and consciousness of your mind to bring about all your dreams, desires and wishes.

Cloaked in a “Christian” package, Joel Osteen’s Your Best Life Now, bears an uncomfortable and dangerous similarity to this most popular of New Age claims. Sample a few of the Osteen versions:

• “You will produce what you’re continually seeing in your mind. If you foster an image of defeat and failure, then you’re going to live that kind of life. But if you develop an image of victory, success, health, abundance, joy, peace, and happiness, nothing on earth will be able to hold those things from you.” (page 5)

• “You must conceive it in your heart and mind before you can receive it.” (page 6)

• “You must look through your ‘eyes of faith’ and start seeing yourself as happy, healthy and whole.” (page 15)

• “What you will receive is directly connected to how you believe.” (page 22)

• “We receive what we believe.” (page 72)

• “Learn how to conceive. Keep the image of what you want to become in front of you. You’re going to become what you believe.” (page 81)

Osteen now travels the country, packing out stadiums with his happy-talk. But I’d like to see Osteen pay a visit to China, preach his “your best life now” drivel, and see how Christians there respond. Let Osteen look into the eyes of Pastor Lei who has been repeatedly arrested and beaten for preaching the Word of God in his church-a church not licensed by the Chinese government. How would the American’s best life work out for Pastor Lei and his congregation? Perhaps their jail time for the Gospel would give them time to assess Rev. Osteen’s claims.

Perhaps when and if these false teachers spend some time in jail themselves for just being a Christian (that is, if they truly are), they will see the error of their teaching. But for now, why should they preach anything different? It has made them rich by fleecing the flock of God!

Have these and countless other persecuted Christians been beaten, jailed and murdered because they “received what they believed,” or did these terrible things happen to them because they did not “develop an image of victory, success, health, abundance, joy, peace, and happiness”?

Were eleven of Jesus’ disciples martyred because, “they received what they believed”? Were the disciples living under a “curse of poverty and defeat” as Osteen says of so many? Here’s a role call of questions I’d like to ask Mr. Osteen. Why is it, Joel, that:

• Paul and Matthew were beheaded?
• Barnabas was burned to death?
• Mark was dragged to death?
• James, the less, was clubbed to death?
• Peter, Philip, and Andrew were crucified?
• Thomas was speared to death?
• Luke was hung by the neck until dead?
• Stephen was stoned?

How would these disciples take to the best-life message?

Yes, I know. Joel’s promises sound so much better to American ears than all those warnings of Jesus about being hated by most people for His sake. But it remains that in large measure, Joel’s offering can be described as nothing less than blasphemy. On page 36, he claims, “God has a big dream for your life.” On page 56: “God sees you as a champion. He believes in you even more than you believe in yourself!” And on page 110: “God has confidence in you.”

Let it be said: God is not impressed with any thing or any body. The ONLY thing that impresses Him, is His Son. Jesus and Jesus alone, is the sweet smelling aroma before the Lord.

Osteen does not provide a single Bible verse to back up these statements…because there are none. Nowhere in the Bible do we read that God believes or has confidence in us. He loves us, but does not believe in us. On the contrary, He knows all too well how unbelievably fickle and untrustworthy we humans actually are. It’s not like Joel describes on page 57: “Believe it or not, that is how God sees you, too. He regards you as a strong, courageous, successful, overcoming person.”

Furthermore, God does not define our success in materialistic terms as Joel does. God is interested in our obedience above all. On page 63, Joel writes:

As long as you are pressing forward, you can hold your head up high, knowing that you are a “work in progress,” and God is in the process of changing you. He’s looking at your last two good moves.

Joel, where in the Bible do you read that God is not looking at our last two bad moves but our last two good moves? Isaiah 64:6 says that even our righteous deeds are like filthy rags or wickedness to God because He is so holy. Even if God did look at our last two good moves, He would still see filthy rags.

Or how about this Osteen gospel gem from page 95:

“Be the best you can be, then you can feel good about yourself.”

Where in the Bible do we find this teaching? What if your best is getting drunk just once a week instead of twice a week? Should you still feel good about yourself?

But wait. I’ve saved Joel’s most outrageous statement for last (drum roll please). On page 144, Joel elevates us to the heavenlies by pointing out that “You may even need to forgive God.”

Whoa! And exactly what would we be forgiving God for? As I recall, forgiveness is for sins-or at least mistakes. But which of those has God made? Not a one according to any Bible I’ve ever read.

Oswald Chambers offers a perspective on the kind of thing the Osteens of the world do to Christians: “Satan’s great aim is to deflect us from the center. He will allow us to be devoted to the death to any cause, any enterprise, to anything but the Lord Jesus.”[1] Hebrews 13:9 instructs us to not be carried away by all sorts of strange teachings (deflected from the center) but sadly, that is exactly what is happening for many at the hand of Joel Osteen.

Instead of pursuing our best life now, we should pursue the things of the Lord so we can have our best life later. I fear that for many who follow Joel’s false teaching, this life is the best they will get. The false gospel proclaimed by Joel Osteen and accepted as truth by millions may allow many to achieve what they can conceive of the things in this world, but true to Jesus’ promise, they may lose their souls in the pursuit.

The LEGALISM in Word Faith doctrine

Joyce Meyers: “You know, dying to self is not a requirement to go to heaven…”

Who are we going to believe? Joyce Meyers or Jesus? Who are we going to trust with our eternal souls? Meyers of Jesus?

Did Jesus not say, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works. — Matthew 16:24-27 —

I dare not trust in the words of apostate Joyce Meyers. We are fools if we do.

“God wants you to drive a nice car and have a nice wardrobe. And live in a nice home and have good promotions. He wants you to have great social life. He wants you to have the best of what the world has to offer.”

Really? We can see who has all that the world has to offer; the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, politicians, news media, leaders both in the world and church, Hollywood, the music industry, the eletists — so many have ALL the world has to offer and yet it means nothing when it comes to their soul. All the riches of the world will not buy them entrance into heaven.

If this gospel does not work where for our brothers and sisters who are SUFFERING for the true Gospel in nations where the mere mention of Jesus will get your head chopped off, where you are thrown in prison for your beliefs, where you are stoned, where you are persecuted for daring to speak the truth — it is NOT THE TRUE GOSPEL. God says, “come out of her (the whore) my people and be ye seperate.”

Do not bother trying to defend this woman to me. I’ve told you the truth. What you do with it, is your buisness. You have been warned.

Transfer of Wealth Conference??

Leave a comment

I found this video here:

http://www.alittleleaven.com/2010/08/transfer-of-wealth-conference.html

I love the way the author put it: At least they’re honest, sort of. What they’re not exactly telling you is that the wealth that will be transferred is the wealth of the attendees of the conference. Their wealth will be transferred to the speakers of the conference under the pretense that if you give your wealth to them then God will give you more wealth in return. This is the “Christian” version of a ponzi scheme and its a total scam. God’s word doesn’t teach this nonsense.

My opinion: APOSTACY! COME OUT FROM THE WHORE WHO IS PRETENDING TO BE THE BRIDE OF CHIST! God is going to judge this!

Is Paula White the “High Priest” now???

10 Comments

I believe God Himself would have struck down dead those who would have tried to get by with this in the days of Moses and Aaron. Where does it say you get some kind of little trinkets for giving to God? Where does it say that teachings can be bought? Where does it say this is ok? It does not. This is more whoredom from Paula White as she pimps the Word for her gain.

Following taken off Paula White’s site:

http://www.paulawhite.org/atonement

We all face times of personal crisis and are often troubled by the turmoil in the world. But I have good news for you!

Paula White is a thief come to steal.

In Exodus 30, God commanded Moses on how to atone for the sins of the people of Israel. He said the high priest would meet Him at the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 30:6) once a year:

“And Aaron shall make atonement upon its horns once a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonement; once a year he shall make atonement upon it throughout your generations. It is most holy to the Lord” (Exodus 30:10).

This year the Day of Atonement is September 18th – and as God’s Holiest Day of the Year, the Day of Atonement is God’s way of providing an opportunity for His people to seek reconciliation and honor Him with sacrifice.

The Day of Atonement not only provides for you to become “at one” with God, but also gives you the opportunity to receive EIGHT SPECIFIC PROMISES from God. The blessings that follow are reserved for those who are obedient to His holiest day and to His commandments.

We become one with God when we are born into his Kingdom. She is adding to the word of God for her gain.

1. INCREASE (Joel 2:23).
2. REVELATION (Joel 2:24).
3. FRESH ANOINTING (Joel 2:24).
4. GOD’S POWER (Joel 2:24).
5. RESTORATION (Joel 2:25).
6. FINANCIAL ABUNDANCE (Joel 2:26)
7. NO SHAME BUT DELIVERANCE (Joel 2:27, 28)
8. GOD’S PRESENCE (Joel 2:28).

The Lord also commanded that no one appeared before Him empty-handed: “…and they shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed. Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you” (Deuteronomy 16:16-17).

Ah ha, she has the the old guilt thingy going. Don’t come empty handed. In other words, be prepared to give to HER. 

Every individual was commanded as they sought reconciliation and blessings to bring their VERY BEST SACRIFICIAL OFFERING to covenant with God. That is what I also ask you to do today.

When you send your best sacrificial Day of Atonement offering, to help you better understand this profound Holy Day of God, I want to send you:

• My brand new three-CD sermon series, “The Meeting Place.” This powerful audio teaching will take you beyond the borders of faith as you experience the power and blessing of living in covenant with Him through the atonement.

• SEVEN BLESSINGS OF THE ATONEMENT by Steve Munsey. In this book, pastor, author, biblical scholar, and my friend Dr. Steve Munsey reveals the seven incredible blessings found in the Day of Atonement and how you can see them at work in your life.

Steve Munsey, another who pimps the Word for his gain.

• For your best Atonement Offering of $70 or more, you’ll also receive the beautiful, ornate replica of the “Ark of the Covenant” for home or office, the perfect reminder of the covenant of forgiveness and blessings God has provided through His atonement.

Church, for all the talking these apostates do about being in a new covenant, they sure try hard enough to bring you under bondage to the old covenant. Paula White can not atone for our sins no more than the trinkets and teachings she offers.

She has somehow managed to set herself up as some kind of high priest.

Just more witchcraft going on within the harlot pretending to be the real Bride of Christ.
