MEGAFEST: The Aftermath

Once again, EXMinistriesTV with G. Craige Lewis and Tetaun Moffett preached the Word of God to rebut those that defend an indefensible position.

The goal again is to point out the many clear inconsistencies that plague the Body of Christ. So many of our main platform prominent preachers are refusing to make a clear stand regarding the Scripturally established demarcation demanded by the Lord in the Word of God.

Lasciviousness is in full swing in these camps that the unsuspecting is falling in record numbers. When you can make an excuse not to preach the gospel, you are ashamed of the Savior. You have denied Him and those that deny Him must expect to be denied before the Father in heaven. The fame of the world has a price.

Denial before the Father.

As a result, the people in the assemblies of God are swallowing the seemingly tasteless, odorless drink of poison. Not realizing that the devil is the one serving this concoction of false truth mixed with lies.

Yet, the people drink it like Kool Aid……………Jim Jones style.

On the OWN Network, Oprah had her “Life Class” and you could see that it was all about Oprah.

When you watch the interview with TD Jakes, you will see that there was no question that the ecumenical spirit has fully engulfed TD Jakes. Once you have crossed the line, you are under the spell of “seducing spirits and doctrine of devils.”

The devils will teach you what to say to defend and indefensible position.

Not true all the time, but I am not, nor will I be surprised.

A few years ago, the Spirit of God shared that more prominent ministers will be exposed in sex scandals. Usually, when you are under the sway of seducing spirits, sometimes, not all the time, sexual immorality is part of the seduction. So, when these preachers come out with their sex scandals, bisexual scandals, and other Secret Sexual Sins, the Spirit of God warned you.

And as usual, with most sexual scandals, the people will scatter and wander around. Disillusioned because they didn’t expect their leader to sin sexually. As with the children of Israel when they engaged in idol worship in the Canaanite high places, sexual immorality was part of their pagan ritual. So it is today. In some camps where prominent leaders exist, the pagan rituals, coupled with sexual immorality will follow them.

One thing about “haters” that I appreciate with the definition of it in this episode. This is a well used tactic of LGBT. When you speak against the sin of homosexuality, you will not be tolerated. The hypocrisy in LGBT is clear. They are tolerant of sin but intolerant of righteousness.

This same spirit has carried over into certain segments of the lewd members that falsely profess faith in Jesus. When the light of the glorious gospel shines on their sin to be exposed, they are quick to call you a hater.

I AM A HATER…………of every thing that God hates.

God hates sin and if you claim to be a believer and you do not hate sin on His level, you are a lover of satan and a true hater of God.

James 4:4-10 says

“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double- minded.

Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”

These same people will accuse you of not being loving.

I AM A LOVER………………..of everything and everybody that God loves.

But there is One Person I love more than you.

God.

Jesus said, “If you love Me keep My commandments.”

John, the apostle of the Lamb said, “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.”

If you cannot love Jesus it’s because you love sin more.

Sadly, only a remnant will fight or contend for the gospel. In fact, we are so tripped up, there are many people that dispute things that really have very little to no bearing over confronting the very things that face the church. We do not realize that the enemy is slowly closing in on the destruction of the truth that it doesn’t really matter that people are dying and going to hell.

The biggest deception is when sexual immorality become decriminalized. When repentance and faith toward God, through the grace and redemption of our Lord Jesus Christ is no longer at the tip of the spear. We are naked and ashamed because we refuse to put on Christ. We no longer go out to battle in armor of light, but we go to battle wearing………………..nothing.

Speaking of wearing nothing. In one segment, you will see women on stage at the MegaFest, dress like they were going clubbing. It is clear that femininity is used as a power to lure men or to have power over men. In other cases, it is also a lure for women to engage in lesbianism or biseuxality. I believe that the segment was one of those “Woman Thou Art Loosed” empowerment segments or “Women Of Purpose.”

Folks, they were dressed loose, not loosed from sin. Loose and lost. Not all of them were dressed that way, but you know who.

Automatically for a brother that has lust issues, forget it. There was no need to dress provocatively. And if Serita Jakes had any holiness left, she should have stopped the show and told them to put some clothes on a cover up the cleavage. What does this tell the other women that are out there? That it’s “OK” to come to church looking like a whore, and a harlot. This is what the church has become. Now when you see them come to church wearing the prostitute’s clothing and you do not check them at the door, just remember, you are responsible.

The spirit of harlotry is in the house of the Lord. Perversion is rampant in the church. Lust in men’s hearts and the spirit of the harlot is in the hearts of women.

We are naked because we are having sexual immorality. We worship ourselves. Porn and masturbation is the worship of ejaculation and orgasm. We worship sexual immorality because of the pleasures associated with it. We desire to make up our rules because God no longer rules us. We have reached a place where the worship of God, in spirit and in truth is no longer sought. But the worship of ourselves is the only thing that matters.

When you hear these preachers talk, Jesus and the correctly divided Word is no longer mentioned. They are saying things out of their emotions. The spirit and the soul is so close that sometimes they are almost indistinguishable. When the Lord is no longer present, preachers know how to substitute the soul for the lack of the Holy Spirit. It’s all a ploy to keep them coming for more. Strip away the emotions and the personalities and you will see the nakedness. So they do not want to appear naked. So they put a veil before the eyes of people.

The veil of false doctrine and hypocrisy, packaged in their emotional personality delivery of their word, not the Word of God.

Paul said, And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of men’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of salvation…”

So the power of God is the gospel of Jesus Christ that must have a zero factor of human wisdom, emotion delivery hype, and personality worship.

As a result, what preachers say could make a false statement sound so true and believable that the Bible is not used to check and cross check what was said. Masters of deception. That’s one of the reasons why the Lord wrote the Word on tablets to Israel. Then gave additional instructions to make sure that they got it.

Psalm 119 is the largest chapter in the Bible with 176 verses, divided into 22 stanzas with 8 verses each. At the beginning of each stanza is the Hebrew alphabet. God is telling us that the Word is the ABC’s of precepts, law, commands, statues, judgments, ways, His word, testimonies, and word of truth.

That tells us that as long as you know the Word, you can’t go wrong.

If you look at each of these speakers when you watch the video, if they did use the Bible, it wasn’t that they started out with the text from Scripture. They started with their point and then attempted to use Scripture to support what they were saying. This is how many people get into trouble with interpreting the already interpreted Bible. The Spirit of God is the only one that has the perfect interpretation of the Word. It is our job to just stay with the rule of interpretation.

You never isolate a Scripture to make a point. You use two or more Scriptures to solidify the base Scripture. When you fail to use this rule, you can make yourself sound so spiritual. Sadly in all corners of the globe where you see strange interpretations of Scripture, you will always see people accept it without searching the Scriptures. They take everything for face value.

Proverbs 14:15 says, “The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps.”

Many will argue their points of Scripture and sound very convincing. However, what stands above everything is the fact that God gave us sense. We also have the Holy Spirit and He will never guide you into error.

At MegaFest, this is what was prevalent. And it seems that they didn’t even care about who was watching that would say something that would rebut their activities. It’s like that verse of Scripture that one alleged pastor used of Proverbs 11:11 and G. Craige Lewis rebut that very well.

This is what the verse said,

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted,
But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

The city is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

The pastor that is preaching righteousness is made to be the one that is wicked and the preacher of righteousness is made to be the one responsible for the overthrowing of the city. While the wicked is made to appear righteous.

It’s been what the Spirit of God has shared.

It’s the criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sin.

This pastor had two of the three of Destiny’s Child come to the stage to receive a proxy apology of pastors that spoke the truth against their sexually explicit acts. It was made to appear that those that spoke truth in the Word of God about their lewd acts, were wrong. This is what the enemy, the devil set out to do from the time that he was kicked out of heaven. To make God be the bad guy and the devil is the good guy.

Isaiah 5:20 says,

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!”

MEGAFEST: Open Letter To Charisma Magazine

I am concerned that Charisma Magazine is advertising MegaFest with TD Jakes and Oprah Winfrey’s demonically inspired “Life Class.”

I trust that you will not write this off and ignore the fact Oprah intentionally denounces Jesus, and supports the sin of homosexuality as well as porn.

Should a watered down response from Charisma come, I am prepared to take this to the next level that will sound the alarm that Charisma is in bed with false doctrine.

This is not a threat because the Lord and the integrity of the Christian faith is at stake. Any compromise openly underscores the apostasy that is evident in the world today in the Christian faith.

On her website, she has a pornography page regarding the use of porn by women.

As a Christian charismatic magazine, to advertise things that the Bible is clearly against, opens the door for many people that are caught in the whirlwind of porn to continue in sin.

Over 50% of pastors are involved in the sin of porn and self gratification. That means 50% of the over 300,000 churches in America have pastors that intentionally watch porn.

I strongly urge you to remove the ad.

To be a friend of the world means to be an enemy of God. James 4:4.

Yours in Christ

MEGAMESS: Ecumenism & The Great Falling Away

In a recording after a female muslim asked a question about Jesus being the only way, TD Jakes said that he was a part of an ecumenical group of faith. This board, according to TD Jakes is made up of Catholics, Muslims and other faiths to help meet the needs of people that were hurting.

This alarmed me because the exclusivity of the gospel and the Lord Jesus Christ is what’s at stake. The world wants inclusion in the exclusive kingdom of God. There is no other way to the Father but by Jesus (see John 14:6). There is no salvation in any other as Peter expressed in Acts 4:12. “for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.”

At Megafess, also known as Megamess, thousands of people will converge in Dallas, Texas for this even held by TD Jakes. Creflo Dollar will be there. I.V. Hilliard will be there. Marvin Sapp will be there. And many other “brand name” preachers will be there to “support.”

Oh, and Oprah Winfrey will be there to teach her “Life Class.” 

What in the world is Oprah Winfrey doing there? 

You see when you are a part of the world system, you will not care who is there. So long as they tell you something to make your life “better.”

The compromise underscores one thing.

We are seeing a great compromise known as apostasy.”

All throughout the faith we are seeing “ecumenism” or preachers preaching ecumenism, rise to pervert those that were either true to their faith and loyalty to the Lord Jesus, or they came in unawares or unnoticed.

There are many ministers that love to be like these preachers. There was a time where I would fall under their spell, to emulate them to attract large crowds to preach to but the Lord closes these door and I realize that my frustration with ministry was really a frustration with God closing doors.

Once again, the Lord in His infinite wisdom preserved me and many others from following after a pursuit that is not the will of God.

These “great preachers” may sound good and attract many people but there is a catch. You have to accept, without question, what they are offering. Even when you know it is blatant error, you have to suppress the truth to get what you want. But here is what is behind what they are doing. They are or they may be “certain men” creeping in to deceive their hearers.

Why would they do such a thing?

You have to look very carefully and note that the driving thing of some of these mega churches and mega pastors is money.

The devil doesn’t care if you shout and jump all over the place. The devil doesn’t mind if you are told that you are going to walk in your destiny. Be told that you will get your breakthrough. Be told that you are going places in God.

But when you get a hold of truth, the light comes on and you will begin to see that what they were all about is using your monetary resources to fund them. It takes money to preach the gospel but preachers should never rob folk to live luxurious (see 2 Corinthians 4:1).

Worse is that the devil will use this to drag many believers from a relationship with the Lord back to the world. Their deliverance from sin was miraculous, but their deception brings them back to the grips of demonic forces.

Jude 4 says…

For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

How do they come in unnoticed?

These preachers act like they were legit from the first time when you heard them preach. You heard their “soulish” delivery of their brand of the Word. They preached as close to the truth as possible but upon hearing certain things that brought questions, some have bypassed examining the substance of their messages because of the way they delivered the Word was “legit” enough.

Over time, you begin to hear things that were blatantly perverted and full of error, but you trust that they would adjust and change.

Nope.

No change.

Their believability sealed the deal a long time ago and you’ve grown accustomed to the Kool Aid like the over 900 souls that perished at the hands of Jim Jones.

Today, we are seeing people fall away like crazy. The combination of sexual immorality, deceptive preaching, and ecumenism is challenging the faith of believers today. We are so swept up with the emotional hype of preaching that we fail to examine the substance of what they are preaching. 

Acts 17:11 is the basis of all examining of what preachers preach.

Galatians 1:6-9 says this…

“I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 

But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.”

We are now upholding the vehicle (preacher) that delivers the Word of God above the truth of the Word of God. When you warn them to take heed, these gullible believers with use “touch not Mine anointed and do My prophets no harm” like a needle on a scratch on a record.

They will also use “Judge not, lest you be judged” to protect their man or woman of God.

Even when you show them that what they are preaching is error, they will almost kill you. The investment they made into these preachers lives and their soulish attachment to them is almost impossible to break away from. So the falling away is happening and if one doesn’t catch them-self and see the truth for what it is, they, and many others will be lost.

Paul said this by the Spirit of God in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4.

“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.” 

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

The Greek definition of falling away means “to defect from the truth.”

This falling away is also captured in the book of Hebrews chapter 6:4-8.

“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.”

The word “away” means to “deviate from the right path.”

There is two verses of Scripture that concur with the course of this world.

Some of the people in the church and in the world are headed in a direction that is clear.

Matthew 7:14-15 says,

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

I like how the Amplified puts it…

“Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it.

But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it.”

More and more, we are seeing an exodus from the truth of the Word of God in a fast pace rush towards complete anarchy.

Anarchy means “a state of lawlessness and disorder (usually resulting from a failure of government).” 

In every sense of the world, we see that any nation that pushes the agenda of LGBT is going head long towards this goal. The people are running the government. Democracy no longer has the moral law of God to govern. As a result, people are dying.

STDs is still running rampant. I believe that we are seeing suppressed figures when it comes to people acquiring HIV/AIDs and other STDs. Under reporting of these areas is part of the problem, however, we still see that most people that refuse to abstain are the ones that will someday die of these diseases. Sexually Transmitted Diseases serves as no deterrent because the people bent on fornicating and having adultery insist on sex without restraint.

The collateral damage is connected and there is no way of stopping people from sinning against God. Yet, they look to the doctors to help them out instead of looking at God’s divine order.

Remember, anarchy results sometimes from a failure of government. With the kingdom of God, there is no failure of His government. When people insist on no divine order, they are left up to demonic order.

Here is a taste of demonic order.

Paul said in Ephesians 2:1-3 “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.”

Those of us that were saved, this is what we used to do until we came to Christ. We went from darkness to light. From the kingdom of satan to God. From out of control to back under His divine control.

The course of this world is heading towards the final countdown. The prince of the power of the air is no other than satan himself. This spirit is at work in the sons or children of disobedience.

You see, when you refuse to refrain or abstain from homosexuality, fornication and adultery, you are opening yourself up to the consequential judgment of God. Additionally, if you are not a believer in Christ, you are already condemned. Not just for the works of unrighteousness done as a result of the nature of satan within, but because of that nature.

Remember “sons of disobedience.”

A child born after his or her parents will take on the nature of their parents.

So being that your spiritual parent is the devil, the nature of a child is there.

So Paul continues and says, “…among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by NATURE children of wrath, just as the others.”

So as long as we see ecumenism and deception, they will continue on the path towards destruction.

Come, Lord Jesus, Come.
