Truth be told #11- (PART II) If you are smitten by a man’s giftings, talents or outward appearance (looks), “Beware” you’ve already overlooked his character… Apostle D.
In part one we ended with the question: Why is all of this happening?
Thru hypocrisy, lust and greed of man, the enemy has managed to remove the true power of God (Real Apostles and Prophets) with godly character and replaced it with administrative gifts or something that looks similar but is totally false.
TBT Scripture: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Tim. 3:1-2a; 4:3,4)
We now have thousands of self appointed ministers with feel good messages (fables) that seem to help you depart with your cash, and just like the share pack of M&M’s illustration in part I, you are paying for king-size lies and only receiving well packaged fables.
TBT vent moment: Just because your father was a pastor, doesn’t mean you are the next in line to pastor. Whatever ever happened to being called by God as the only qualification for the job rather than being able to hoot and holler (preach)? The truth is if you can see yourself, have planned to be and are excited about being an Apostle, Prophet or servant of God, you are most likely self appointed. Thru all of the Bible and in my own experience, when God calls it’s usually the last thing you want to do or see yourself doing. Nowadays you can just go to a Bible College, get your ministers license and you’re in. Oh and please don’t let me get started on the latest fad: Everyone is calling themselves “Bishops” now.
TBT Scripture: Ephesians 4:11-12 KJV and he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Is it me or can anyone remember seeing the name bishop in the bible? If so please send me the scripture! Ok let me bring it back down…and 3..2..1.(Deep Breath). Before you think I’m cruel, I’m not knocking anyone who calls themselves a Bishop. It’s only a title when it boils down to it. Here’s my point, titles don’t carry the power of God. In my experience, they normally only carry feel-good messages.
TBT Answer: True men and women of God with integrity carry with them the power to break curses, heal the sick, and destroy all works of the enemy.
You see Demons recognize and cannot stand before a true Prophet and Apostle without being uncovered because they are ambassadors of the most high and carry with them the backing of all of Heaven’s Army. True Prophets and Apostles will always expose sin and confront religion, but in most churches, true Prophets and Apostles have now been replaced with administrative gifts that want not to offend or upset anyone and ensure that everyone is home in time for the game or by false Prophets and Apostles who are full of greed and debauchery at its highest form.
Nothing more than wolves feasting on God’s people and becoming wealthy while we are left holding a bottle of miracle water “Straight from the Jordan River”. It heals any disease because it was the same water Jesus walked on, right? Oh and let’s not forget the $100 receive a word directly from God line!
TBT scripture: In Matthew 7:15-17 NKJV Jesus in his own words tells us “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
In my closing, most people would rather accept a lie (bad fruit) that temporarily fulfills them, than the truth (good fruit) that will permanently set them free. If you need an example, just look at how many beautiful women say they want a good man that will treat them right, only to turn around and sign an 18-year contract with an abusive man by having his child.
Apostle D – Just a voice crying in the world-er-ness.
