HOW PREACHERS SUCCESSFULLY EXPLOIT PEOPLE
This generation is witnessing highest numbers of multi-billionaires and multi-millionaires among the ministers of God than ever before. Since the beginning of Christianity from Jesus Christ to the Apostles to our contemporary men of God such as John Wesley, Martin Luther, D L Moody, etc. there have never been this type of super-rich, luxurious and extravagant ministers of the gospel as we have now.
How did they get their riches? For example, Nigeria has more rich ministers of God in the world among the top 10 richest ministers, whereas Nigeria has one of the highest numbers of people living below poverty level in the world, and one of corrupt countries in the top 10 most corrupt countries.
From America to Africa to Asia we see super rich ministers, how did they get their riches? Does God send angels to bring cash for them from heaven? NO. Were they such super rich before they started the ministry? NO! They claim they are living above world economy, and that their finance source can never dry. And many wonder, where are they getting their multiple finance that make them super rich, even richer than the people they pastor and even the corrupt politicians? How do they manage to live such luxurious and extravagant lifestyle which our governors can’t afford?
The secret of their riches in the Bible, it is a foretold warning of the secret of these super-rich ministers. Read it in the Book of 2 Peter 2:3, “By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.”
The secret of all our super-rich gospel ministers all over the world is deceptive words – deceiving their followers with deceptive words and their followers in return donate their wealth. They all have the same messages and lifestyles.
How could they successfully gather wealth from several thousands of their followers and become super-rich, are their followers such gullible? NO, their followers are not gullible but covetous. On the part of the rich ministers are deceptive words, according to the Bible, and on the part of the followers is covetousness. The Bible says, by covetousness these so called ministers of God will exploit you. You know what it means? These so called ministers of gospel have deceptive words and their followers have covetous heart, now when deceptive words meets covetous heart, there will always be exploitation. It is a simple chemistry – when deceptive words meet a covetous heart there will be exploitation, and that is exactly what the Bible says. 2 Peter 2:3.
The multi-millionaire preachers in America, in Africa, in Europe, in Asia are successfully exploiting their followers with their deceptive words because those Christian followers have covetous hearts. Here is how it happens:
The super-rich preachers use deceptive words of prophetic declaration of products without productivity, and their followers give them prophetic offering. Now, how can there be products without productivity, simply by raising up your hands or by giving all the money in your account to the prophet? It is because the followers are covetous; they want the products in a cheap way without productivity.
The super-rich preachers preach prosperity of God without purity of life to please God. When the Bible says we should seek first the kingdom of God and its righteous living, the super-rich preachers ignore purity, holiness of life and preach prosperity. The followers follow because they are covetous of a cheap, sweet gospel.
The prosperity preachers preach peace of God without pleasing God. They preach crown without cross, they preach faith without faithfulness, they preach resting in the Lord without restitution, they preach forgiveness of God without forsaking sins, they preach confession without repentance, they preach wonders of God without watchfulness in Him, they preach second touch of God’s supernatural blessing without preaching the second coming of Jesus; they preach open heaven of God’s blessing without the open heaven of God’s judgment.
These super-rich pastors promise heaven abounding for their followers without holiness of life, whereas it is written clearly in the Bible that without holiness no man shall see the Lord, Heb. 12:14, it is because the followers have covetous hearts for sweat free gospel.
They deceive you with deceptive words for your cheap money because you have covetous heart for cheap gospel, for broad road.
I heard someone talking of his bishop, he said in around 1985, God told the bishop in America that, “My son, go to Nigeria and deliver my people from poverty and make them rich.” But 30 years after, the bishop who had little and maybe one or two cars then, now has privates jets and many things, and Nigeria whom he came to deliver from poverty is getting poorer, more unemployment, more poverty, lack of primary healthcare, more crimes, and education is more expensive. Now who has made who rich? Is it the bishop who has made Nigeria rich or covetous followers of Nigerians who have made the bishop rich? The Bible says by covetousness these so called ministers of God will exploit you.
I was in a church some years ago and the pastor announced that their daddy G.O was coming to Abuja for special Holy Ghost service and anyone who wanted to see daddy G.O in a special meeting should collect invitation card of N15000. The same daddy G.O who told his followers that they should redeem their firstborn children with money to avoid firstborn curse. These are the same super-rich ministers who collect first fruit offerings, prophetic offering into their personal accounts. They exploit you with deceptive words because you too have a covetous heart.
The Bible says the judgment of God is coming of all these super-rich, luxurious, prosperity preachers, and motivational speakers. “for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.” 2 Peter 2:3
All the prosperity preachers, super-rich pastors, motivational speakers are working for Satan and the judgment of God is waiting for them, including those who follow them and donate for their false ministries.
“But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, 13 and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime.
They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices,and are accursed children. 15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness.” 2 Peter 2:12-15.
Do not be among the deceived; do not wait till after rapture before you realize you are being deceived. Desire genuine salvation and choose the narrow path that leads to heaven.
