The Potter (God) And His Clay (Pastors) - Mere Sandy Men Claiming To Be God!

The Potter (God) And His Clay (Pastors) – Mere Sandy Men Claiming To Be God!

Text:
Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
Romans 4:21 “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.”
Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:”
Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
Genesis 18:14 “Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
Mark 10:27 “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”
Luke 18:27 “And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”

This post today is to challenge the so called men of God, who in one way or the other have rejected and kicked against divine revelations, visions, testimonies and messages, without scripturally outlining the so called errors in these revelations, except using their human sense to judge spiritual matters. Furthermore, from the most respected to the nearly unknown in the ministry of the gospel, who have actually spoken against divine messages does so using their head knowledge and quoting the bible out of context to support their blur visions. May God have mercy on them.

This is because according to the word of God in 1 John 4:1 which says “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”, none of these men of God in their rejection of these messages ever said ‘the LORD said to me’, or ‘the LORD revealed to me’, or ‘I prayed and then God spoke to me’ etc to stand a ground according to the word of God to reject these testimonies that they are not from God.

Don’t forget that these men of God in their preaching and ministration do tell their members and congregations that ‘the LORD said there’s someone here’. If truly the LORD Jesus Christ have been giving you these your prophetic messages and utterances, why is it then difficult for this same Jesus to now audibly speak to you regarding these so called divine revelations you’ve rejected outrightly? This is where the danger lies and unless you pastors actually repent and amend your ways from whatever you’ve been warned about, you shall all likewise perish says the word of God. Luke 13:3 “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

To begin therefore, it do sadden me that the people who are supposed to be real men of God in dividing the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15, are the ones who instead are now the enemies of the cross of Christ Philippians 3:18. What a pity! The pastors of today especially the most influential among them are the number one ‘unbeliever’ in God, as it relates to the working of God in this perilous times in Christian history. They are ever learning, but they can never be able to come to the knowledge of the truth 2 Timothy 3:1-7.

Pastors, most of you are actually teaching that nothing is impossible with God Luke 1:37 but, why do you in your own understanding now limits God’s power and ability? Ephesians 3:20. Do you people think that God will ever respect you when it comes to performing His own mission? Acts 10:34. The very fact that you refused to seek God’s face over these messages which are divinely inspired shows that you have since lost focus on God’s abilities. You are now ‘ordinary chaff’ which the wind is tossing up and down, as the Holy Spirit of God that once resided in you had since left as a result of you grieving Him Ephesians 4:30. Do not be deceived by your continuous demonstration of God’s power because, the gifts and calling of God are without repentance Romans 11:29. The respect men still showers on you today is born out of the fact that these men are blind men, hence they cannot see with their own eyes but now seeing through your eyes. Deliver your sheep O LORD God from these wolves in Jesus name. Amen.

Jeremiah 18:1-10
1 “The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. 7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; 8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. 9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; 10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.”

In Acts 26:8, Apostle Paul asked: “Why should it be thought a thing incredible (unbelievable) with you, that God should raise the dead?” Isn’t this an unfortunate scenario today that ordinary clay (a pastor) is now challenging the Potter (God) over HIS own work? Anyway, the word of God will stand forever. Romans 9:20 “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? SHALL THE THING FORMED SAY TO HIM THAT FORMED IT, WHY HAST THOU MADE ME THUS?”
Oftentimes, most of these pastors that had spoken against these divine revelations always refer to Luke 16:19-31, as their final testimony between the living and the dead. However, considering particularly verse 31 where father Abraham said “And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead” clearly points out that, even though God in HIS unlimited abilities will raise one from the dead (as it is happening in our very eyes today) that they will still not believe. Is this scripture not being fulfilled right now before our very eyes? No wonder the Our LORD Jesus Christ and Apostle Paul reechoed what Prophet Isaiah declared saying: LORD, WHO HATH BELIEVED OUR REPORT? Isaiah 53:1, John 12:38, Romans 10:16.
These pastors are saying with their vain and limited knowledge of God that the Almighty God lack understanding while HE should send people to heaven and hell, and back to life again to give us warning. What an insult on the ALL POWERFUL GOD! Revelation 19:6. May God have mercy on them today in Jesus name. Amen.

Isaiah 45:5-9
5 “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. 8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it. 9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?”

Isaiah 29:13-16 gave the actual state of the pastors of today. They claimed that they know God, love God and obey God but, with their unbiblical rejection of God’s messages to them and their ministries, they are truly men pleasers who only serve God with their lips as their heart is very very very far from God.

Isaiah 29:13 “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”
No wonder Paul warned us to withdraw ourselves from such pastors, who replace financial prosperity for godliness. 1 Timothy 6:3 “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.”

Romans 9:19-24
19 “Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, 24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?”

However, instead of these pastors that had already been warned in one way or the other by God, who think that they can limit God with their limited useless human knowledge and understanding, to repent and pray fervently for mercy as Prophet Isaiah did in Isaiah 64:6-9, they are instead showing their arrogance in the public and their goats children (Matthew 25:32-33) called members are clapping and praising them, while their GO, GS, Papa, Prophet, Senior Pastor, Bishop, Pastor, Mummy, Father-in-the-Lord, etc are dancing naked to hell fire. What a disaster! May God have mercy on their soul today in Jesus name. Amen.

Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. 8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. 9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.”

To further display the ignorance of these pastors as regard their knowledge of the word of God, they are claiming that when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, that Lazarus never went about preaching. You see, the fact that the bible never recorded all occasions throughout the world, does it mean that it is only the things written in the bible that ever happened or took place? There were things that Daniel and John the Beloved were never permitted to write down in their divine encounters are not recorded in the bible Daniel 8:26; 12:4, 9, Revelation 10:4 yet, they saw those things.
The bible says the ones written were written for our learning and for our admonition. Romans 15:4 “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” 1 Corinthians 10:11 “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” So, what is the big deal should men who had a near death or actually death experience come back to life and relates what they may have seen beyond the reach of the natural eyes? In as much as most of these revelations never break the word of God, whether you agree with it or not, they are God sent.

Therefore, for those people today who are privileged to relate their divine encounter messages with us, it is for our own good, which the righteous men of old and the prophets sort after but could not get. In Matthew 13:17, Jesus says “For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”

Do you know that Lazarus testimony after being raised from the dead by Jesus Christ won a lot of souls to the kingdom of God, while Jesus was still present right there, to the extent that the chief priests consulted to kill Lazarus? Are these pastors not doing the same thing against these children of God that Jesus decided to use in bringing us divine messages? This goes to show that Lazarus testified to the glory of God, against the held belief of our pastors today. See it in John 12:9-11. 9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. 10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; 11 BECAUSE THAT BY REASON OF HIM (Lazarus) MANY OF THE JEWS WENT AWAY, AND BELIEVED ON JESUS.” Haven’t you seen it now? Please, study the bible for yourself and let nobody deceive you with the vain philosophy of men Ephesians 5:6, Colossians 2:8.

By the way, I do hear some of them ignorantly saying ‘the bible is our final authority’ and yet, they forgot that all the written word of God is by divine encounters and revelations. Have you ever asked yourself: How did Moses wrote the book Genesis? Was Moses at the creation with God? You see, if you are not careful and should you foolishly follow these supposed pastors, you will find yourself to blame at the end of your life for believing them and rejecting the word of God Mark 7:9.

2 Peter 1:19 “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
2 Samuel 23:2 “The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.”
2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”

Another ignorance displayed by these supposed men of God as far as the word of God is concerned, is their claim that God cannot use a prostitutes/sinner to relate HIS message to humanity. What a lame and dumb excuse!
Do these men at all read and understand their bible? If God can use an animal to rebuke Balaam Numbers 22:27-33, why can’t HE use HIS own creature made in HIS own image to rebuke any man today? Genesis 1:27. Do these men know that it was a harlot called Rahab that received the spies Joshua sent to map out Jericho? Joshua 2:1. Do they also know that it was through this same harlot that the lineage of Jesus Christ came? Joshua 6:25, Matthew 1:5.
Pastors, have you also forgotten that it was a harlot (a woman that had 5 men as husbands previously John 4:18) that Jesus met at the well, who was transformed into a righteous evangelist preaching the message that drew men to repentance? John 4:28-30. Pastors, how dare you limit God through your position, fame and money? I pray that the Almighty God forgives you people your sins and ignorance today in Jesus name. Amen.

Again, these pastors also preached that God cannot change, which is the truth of the word of God. Malachi 3:6 says “For I am the LORD, I CHANGE NOT; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” However, can these men now begin to order God how HE will do HIS own things? The bible says in Psalm 147:5 “Great is our Lord, and of great power: HIS UNDERSTANDING IS INFINITE (boundless, endless, innumerable).” Also in Isaiah 40:28, the word of God declared “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? THERE IS NO SEARCHING (no investigation) OF HIS UNDERSTANDING.” You can therefore see that these pastors are just there making jest of their calling in their attempts to defend God, while they ignorantly forgot to know that HE can defend HIMSELF without the help of any mortal man Matthew 26:53. Father, deliver these pastors from the gates of hell today in Jesus name. Amen.

To the best of my knowledge and understanding, the under listed pastors here have spoken ill of divine revelations one time or the other, especially against the message of Mrs. Linda Rika (formerly Linda Ngaujah from Sierra Leone). They all knew that the message of this lady is true but, they rejected it based on the personality of the messenger especially as she was not a saved Christian at the time of her encounter. Remember, God is God and will only do anything that pleases HIM and not what will please any man 1 Corinthians 12:18; 15:38.
Again the LORD had to ask: “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:27. No, LORD God Almighty, ALL THINGS are possible with You. Thank you Jesus.

1. Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, Deeper Life Bible Church – He called all the people with divine revelations ‘LIARS’. Honestly, I don’t know how Pastor Kumuyi came about this his harsh conclusion. Does it mean because Pastor Kumuyi do not believed in divine encounters (example with Brother Michael Thomas Sambo, a member of Deeper Life Bible Church) that God does not work in divine atmosphere? This is ridiculous. What if God actually sent these people that Pastor Kumuyi had labeled liars? Your mercy O LORD I plead for your son Pastor Kumuyi, in Jesus name.

2. Pastor E.A. Adeboye, The Redeemed Christian Church of God – He simply said ‘DON’T PAY ATTENTION’ in rejecting the divine message to himself and his RCCG church. From the position of Pastor Adeboye in this matter, he was concerned about the money these people could be making in selling their CDs, and not because the message in itself was demonic or from the devil. What a great misconception! O LORD God, please don’t allow your son Pastor Adeboye to labour in vain in Jesus name. Amen.

3. Pastor Lazarus Mouka, The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministry – His church called Linda ‘A SNAKE’ and a ‘MEMBER OF 7 BLOOD SUCKING DEMONS WITCHCRAFT COVEN’. For a supposed man of God to base his stand on the matter of divine revelation on a confession of a witchcraft member of his church is damning. All these as a result of Pastor Lazarus being mentioned that what they called ‘god of chosen’ is actually a demon, and not Jesus Christ. What a shame!

4. Pastor Paul Eneche, Dunamis International Christian Center – He dedicated 2 whole Sundays to condemn Linda and her testimony. His position was that Linda was a prostitute. Linda misquoted the bible saying that God help those who helped themselves whereas such is never written in the bible. This Pastor Eneche made frantic effort to ensure that Linda’s testimony was rubbished with his message, like a man that was panting for breath. What a pity! Repent and seek God’s mercy now Pastor Eneche because, you don’t actually know this God you claimed to have known so much that HE is now your age mate that will only think the way you are thinking  Isaiah 55:8-9.

5. Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, Effurun, Warri, Delta State – He called Linda ‘A DEMON’. He claimed he was the very first person that attacked Linda’s message before other pastors became bold to challenge her. Prophet Jeremiah, if you think because of your miracles and prophecies in your church means God’s presence there, you are mistaken. God is never a magician and HE will never allow sinners to come to HIM and return back in their sins. No. God is far more than that. Prophet indeed! I pray the mercy of Jesus Christ will locate you today in Jesus name. Amen.

Looking at the way and manner these mentioned pastors above and others addressed the issue of divine revelation, it is purely evident that they don’t actually know God. My only advice to them is that, they shouldn’t consider their positions as pastors to start thinking that God will start consulting them before doing anything today, especially as some of them have driven Jesus out of their churches, with their messages of blessings, promotions, grace, prosperity, while wickedness, disobedience to the word of God, sin, ungodliness, worldliness, unrighteousness, take center stage in their gatherings.
They should be aware that ignorantly, they could end up fighting against God HIMSELF in their craftiness, thinking that they are wise. A word is enough for the wise the adage says.
Acts 5:39 “But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.”
 Acts 23:9 “And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.”

In conclusion, Paul says “If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.” 2 Corinthians 10:7

Shalom!
