GOD TV Is Undoubtedly The Fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy

2 Peter 2:3 KJV 1611

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Amplified Bible

And in their covetousness (lust, greed) they will exploit you with false (cunning) arguments. From of old the sentence [of condemnation] for them has not been idle; their destruction (eternal misery) has not been asleep.

If these indictments of false prophets and their abominable exploitation of people are true, why are people so frightfully gullible to listen to them, believe them and support them? Once again, we should be astonished at the awesome accuracy of Bible prophecy because here again it provides us with the answer.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 KJV 1611

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; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Amplified Bible

For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold, And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions.

New American Standard Bible

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

The next question we need to ask is: What are people craving for? What are the things they so desperately want? What tickles their ears? The answer is quite simple: HEALTH, WEALTH AND PROSPERITY. Before I continue I would like to remind you what God said to Paul of Tarsus when He saved his eternal soul from damnation. He said:

Acts 9:15-16

The GOD TV Amplified Bible

But the Lord said to him, Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of Mine to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the descendants of Israel; For I will make clear to him how I am going to totally restore to him the abundance of health, wealth and prosperity because I have favoured him with all these blessings.

Really? Is this what God commanded Ananias to tell Paul? Let’s look at what God really said.

Acts 9:15-16

Amplified Bible (AMP)

But the Lord said to him, Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of Mine to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the descendants of Israel; For I will make clear to him how much he will be afflicted and must endure and suffer for My name’s sake.

And to top it all God also says to his true disciples:

Philippians 1:29-30 Amplified Bible

For you have been granted [the privilege] for Christ’s sake not only to believe in (adhere to, rely on, and trust in) Him, but also to suffer in His behalf. So you are engaged in the same conflict which you saw me [wage] and which you now hear to be mine [still].

And this is how Paul expreienced God’s prophetic words which He announced through Ananias on that day when he was born-again.

Brother Paul’s Blessings and FavourWord of Faith (Seed Planting) Preachers’
Blessings and Favours.
Are they imitators of Paul?
1 Corinthians 4:11-16Amplified BibleTo this hour we have gone both hungry and thirsty; we [habitually] wear but one undergarment [and shiver in the cold]; we are roughly knocked about and wander around homeless. And we still toil unto weariness [for our living], working hard with our own hands. When men revile us [wound us with an accursed sting], we bless them. When we are persecuted, we take it patiently and endure it. When we are slandered and defamed, we [try to] answer softly and bring comfort. We have been made and are now the rubbish and filth of the world [the off- scouring of all things, the scum of the earth]. I do not write this to shame you, but to warn and counsel you as my beloved children. After all, though you should have ten thousand teachers (guides to direct you) in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the glad tidings (the Gospel). So I urge and implore you, be imitators of me.benny-hinn-mansion_thumbcreflo-dollars-mansion_thumbpaul-and-jan-crouchs-mansion_thumb1the-copelands-mansion_thumbpaula-whites-home_thumbjoyce-meyers-kingdom_thumb
These photos contain only one of the many homes each of these super apostles possess. GOD TV is a very lucrative business – very prosperous and lucrative indeed.

Lord, how could you have told Paul all those negative things? How can you go against your own will wanting us to make ONLY positive confessions? Don’t you realize there is power in the tongue and every negative word and thought we cultivate comes to pass in our lives and that of our families? No, no, no, LORD, you must have made a mistake. How could you have told Paul all those abominable negative things? Don’t you recall what your great and esteemed prophet and apostle, Brother Benny Hinn taught us? He said: “Never, ever, ever go to the Lord and say, ‘If it be thy will.’ Don’t allow such faith-destroying words to be spoken from your mouth.”  (Benny Hinn, “Rise And Be Healed, Page 47). Sorry Jesus, you destroyed your own faith and that of your true disciples throughout all the ages when you prayed your silly prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane “O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.” (Matthew 26:39). Does that shock you? It should because it is exactly what Benny Hin  teaches.

dr-nasir-siddiki_thumbOn day 8 of “Missions Week” Nasir Siddiki gave a sermon on “Your Mountain.” Like all the other false prophets who appeared on GOD TV he promised that God would remove your mountain provided that you gave sacrificially to GODTV, supposedly for the advancement of the Gospel (which is rarely or ever heard on their networks). It is a false Gospel that cannot save.  Sidikki mentioned 16 mountains of which one was PERSECUTION.

YOUR MOUNTAINS

  1. Relationships
  2. Family
  3. Unsaved love ones
  4. Abuse
  5. Addiction
  6. Fear
  7. Finances
  8. Unemployment
  9. Discrimination
  10. PERSECUTION
  11. Distant from God
  12. Illness
  13. Loneliness
  14. Deliverance
  15. Revival
  16. Rejection

If persecution is a mountain God needs to remove when you give sacrificially to the cause of GOD TV (which is to take your money under false pretenses), then God is a dismal failure because He never took away the mountain of persecution form the lives of millions of Christians who had been persecuted, martyred, burned at the stake, murdered, mutilated, beheaded, torn apart,, dishonoured, vilified, and humiliated throughout the ages. And if we look today, we can see how the persecution of Christians has escalated to astronomical proportions and it will continue to increase. Persecution, as we’ve seen in Paul’s and the other disciples’ lives, is a blessing and not a mountain to be removed. Indeed, the disciples were filled with joy when they were counted worthy to suffer shame and persecution in behalf of Jesus Christ.

And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. (Acts 5:41)

The only conclusion to be reached is that GOD TV is not, I repeat NOT, a Christian TV network. It is the gathering place of many of the most deceived and deceiving false prophets in the world and they are leading you up the garden path right into hell. How dare I say it? Well, the Bible distinctly says:

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. (2 Peter 2:1)

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:22-23)

  1. It is mind-blowing how people can fall for these blatant quacks. I know plenty of folk who swallow the “teachings” of these charlatans. And some get very angry if you let them know they are charltans! I’ve noted the warnings from their dupes who think that by obeying 1 Thess 5:21 and 1 John 4:1, and therefore concluding that these people are frauds, that you are maligning men and women of God.
    If it wasn’t prophesied in the Bible that these crooks would lead people astray, you could not believe it. You have to wonder if those who fall for their lies actually read the Bible. Yet, sadly, I know people who claim to follow the Bible who do fall for it. They are glued to the God channel when these celebrities come on.
    Sad, so sad.

    Hi Deborah, that God tv amplifed bible Acts 9:15-16. Where did you find it? Thank you!

    Hopes all go well.

  3. james butler says:

    beginning to feel totally confused.i can only hope my faith is enough.

  4. james butler,

    Remember what Jesus said?

    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (Joh 16:13)

    Don’t be confused. The devil is the god of confusion, not GOD. Read you Bible and ask the Lord to give you wisdom.

    If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. (Jas 1:5)

    Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Eph 6:10-12)

    I am one of the gullible people who used to send money to god tv. I am intelligent but sadly, like so many others , was conned. For me, it’s not that I’m a fool, but that I was a lonely single mum of 3 babies, had been abused and was receiving death threats from my ex husband. He had left me me massively in debt. It was a very very sad time. I was a very new Christian, with no biblical knowledge. Sadly my church were only there on Sundays! God tv filled a gap for a human voice. That’s why so many people get duped. We’re not all looking for prosperity- just a human voice speaking gods word. Before dismissing viewers as unbelievable fools- try reaching out to lonely people outside of a ‘church hours ‘
    I am wiser and more discerning now. I repent of supporting these awful false prophets- but I do understand their appeal to lonely people.

    It must be a problem when certain churches hide behind “religion” when despicable acts of criminality cannot then be examined by law enforcement officials. Religious freedom is a grey area that allows tax evaders, con artists and the like to flourish. If true Christians would actively become more involved in pointing out and questioning false preachers that “pick the wallets and bank accounts of gullible people” it would be a good thing. For too long have we been afraid of “judging others” and bought into the lie of “harming the church”. I do not suggest that we as lay Christians should all become “heresy hunters” – but we are certainly being let down by our church leaders who are in full time paid ministry? Ek vra maar net?

    Agreed! However, I must remind you that to earnestly contend for the faith (struggle unto death if need be) is not heresy hunting. It is obedience to and love for God and his Word. Ek sê maar net.

    Thomas, if you see that my posting has “heresy hunters” clearly “in aanhalings tekens” it suggests that some heresy hunters suggest that just about everything that they (or their denomination) do not agree with is heresy it implies that some heresy hunters are “false heresy hunters”. It is difficult to bring a balanced argument to a blog which keeps it relevant and to the point as I can see from your (and my) frustration when people throw vain utterances and illogical reasoning (including insults) at us when we post our thoughts and research into the ring.

    Keep up the good work!

    We actually need a group of committed believers in the truth to lay a charge at the door of church leaders that allow Angus Buchan and the like to infiltrate a once more conservative church in South Africa (and elsewhere) to take a firm approach to keep a falling away more contained. We owe it to the people of South Africa to try and undo the damage that the Buchanites and others have done. Above all we need to pray for the flock (wider flock) to get the protection from their leaders that they deserve as it seems that the deceit has hit hard at the top echelons.

    I have copied a posting on CRI homepage which is a good article on heresy hunters and “peripheral issues”(where false heresy hunting abounds)….

    Christian Research Institute Home / Aberrant Teachings and Sects Perspectives / Exposing False Doctrine: Heresy Hunting or Biblical Mandate?
    Exposing False Doctrine: Heresy Hunting or Biblical Mandate?

    FALSE DOCTRINE- Introduction
    Well, I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, that Christians are simply supposed to love one another and be united together in faith. Should we, therefore, regard as divisive those Christians who speak out against teachings in the church which are clearly unbiblical?

    FALSE DOCTRINE- Heresy Hunting?
    I can tell you firsthand that it is no joy to be labeled a “heresy-hunter.” Yet, as Paul instructed Timothy, we are to zealously guard the purity of the message God has entrusted to us, and for good reason (1 Tim 1:18-19; 6:20; 2 Tim. 4:2-5).

    FALSE DOCTRINE- From Within as Well as Without
    We read in such passages as Acts chapter 20, and 2 Peter chapter 2, that false teachers will arise, bringing with them destructive heresies, distorting the truth and destroying the faith of some. Moreover, it is clear that these teachers will come not only from outside the church, but also from within the body of Christ as well.

    It is therefore imperative that we test all things by Scripture (1 Thes. 5:21). It was in this spirit that the Bereans examined the words of the Apostle Paul, for which they were reckoned as noble in character (Acts 17:11).

    FALSE DOCTRINE- Correcting and Rebuking
    Indeed, not only can the Bible be used for preaching, teaching and encouragement, but, it is equally valuable for correcting and rebuking (2 Tim. 4:2). As a matter of fact, we as Christians are held accountable for proclaiming the whole will of God, warning others of false teachings. (Acts 20:26-28; cf. Ezek. 33:7-9; 34:1-10).

    FALSE DOCTRINE- Church Discipline
    This is not merely a suggestion, it is, in fact, a divine mandate. Of course if heresies are coming from teachers within the church, we ought to try and approach them first with our concerns. Should that fail to resolve the problem, we are told in Matthew 18 to expose their errors to the church; and if need be, divulge their names. (1 Tim. 1:20; 2 Tim. 2:17-18; 4:14-15; 3 John 9-10).

    FALSE DOCTRINE- Scriptural Mandate
    We would, therefore, do well to heed Scripture’s explicit warnings to be on guard for false teachings (Rom. 16:17-18; cf. 1 Tim. 1:3-4; 4:16; 2 Tim. 1:13-14; Titus 1:9; 2:1), and to point them out to brothers and sisters in Christ (1 Tim. 4:6). At CRI, it is not our practice to make an issue out of peripheral matters on which honest Christians can differ. However, we are committed to exposing those who would compromise the essential doctrines of the historic Christian faith. Remember, controversy for the sake of controversy is sin. But controversy for the sake of the truth is a divine command.

    * Thus in closing I suggest that we not only sit at home and post to the like-minded but also make an appointment if at all possible and sit down and reason with the leaders of previously sound churches. The charismatic chaos of the popular Pentacostals has usurped the authority that once was there (and “dead words teaching” that were and still are not spirit filled is the cause)? I hope this longer than intended post is read by more than the two of us…..

  9. Steven Richardsen says:

    Did Jesus ever charge money for His teaching? If He did you would have recieved a papyrus. HE NEVER DID. Did Paul ever charge for his letters? If he did he would have been rich. Paul said work with your own hands and dont be a burden to the body of believers. Jesus always talked about rewards in heaven recieving true riches. They never had mega churches then but had little flocks. Revival comes when you and me become the little seed that dies and produces much grain. Not by putting your cash into someones life style. I hope i made my point ps im a back slider and want to give up all that i have again. I loved how Gods miracles were small yet profound. Just having faith was to me a miracle ?

  10. Dear Steven

    You said “I hope i made my point ps im a back slider and want to give up all that i have again”

    You don’t have to give up all you have to make penance for your sinful life… Penance is self-punishment done to try to right a wrong. Jesus said to the woman something very profound who was going to be stoned:

    John 8:11 “She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. ”

    Ask Jesus for forgiveness Steven and go and sin no more.

    You said “I loved how Gods miracles were small yet profound. Just having faith was to me a miracle”

    God gave us Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross that we may be born again and have eternal life.
