Another Level Of Grace - The Traps Of Today's Pastors To Steal From You
Another Level Of Grace - The Traps Of Today's Pastors To Steal From You
Our LORD JESUS CHRIST in Matthew 7:7 said “ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 FOR EVERY ONE THAT ASKETH RECEIVETH; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, HOW MUCH MORE SHALL YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN GIVE GOOD THINGS TO THEM THAT ASK HIM?”
Last Sunday, 20th July 2014, I was watching the television when Bishop Isaac Idahosa, Founder of God First Ministries Inc (Illumination Assembly), Minna, Niger State, Nigeria, was preaching. He said the level of grace he has and some of the things he does, if another person do it, he will not go scot free.
He said that when he was to build a church, GOD told him to start building in a certain plot of land. Meanwhile he didn’t enquire who the owner of the plot of land was before he started his church building. Therefore when the owner of the property finally showed up, according to him he said the man asked him to stop work immediately.
When the man visited another day, he discovered that the work was still going on in the place, and so the man asked him to pull the building down. He said he told the man that he himself will be very grateful if that man who owns the land will pull the church down by himself.
He then said the owner of the land said “I craze”? That is whether he was stupid to pull the church building down, knowing that it was GOD’S house. And thereafter, they now settled for the price of the plot and he finally paid for it, and his members were shouting with jubilation to praise their pastor for his ‘another level of grace’. What a subtle way to steal!
The spirit behind this short write-up here is to point out to you child of GOD the abuse of the grace of GOD by our so called pastors today. They are carrying themselves up and down today in the streets as if they are now GOD themselves, as they now constitute themselves as laws to the common man in the street, who their members now worship and reverence. Child of GOD, repent before the anger of GOD fall on you.
How do you expect today’s sinner Christians in their churches to repent of their sins, and seek JESUS wholeheartedly with all their hearts, when their pastors have completely turned them away from GOD? You shall be delivered from their grips today in JESUS name. Amen.
What Bishop Isaac did with the painted picture above is STEALING by trick.
First, he didn’t try to look for the owner of the land to asked that the land be sold to him to build a church. He broke the scriptures that says “ask, and you shall be given”.
Again, when he was asked to stopped his building by the owner of the land on a property not his own, he refused because he thinks that since it was a church he was building, he was doing GOD a favour. Here again, Bishop Isaac broke the scripture because the Bible says “pride is like giving worship to images” 1 Samuel 15:23 BBE, “to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams” 1 Samuel 15:22. Bishop Isaac was proud and becomes disobedient to the instruction of the man because in his mind he was saying ‘I will see whether he will pull the church down, by the way who is he self’. This may be exactly what was going on in his mind at that time.
Moreover Bishop Isaac was also trying to help GOD because he thinks that by building a church for GOD, it will cause GOD to be submitted to you. Please go and ask Uzzah who tried to help GOD and what became of him 2 Samuel 6:6-8. No matter how smart you think you are, you can never outsmart GOD because your frame is in His palm Psalms 103:14.
Also Bishop Isaac was trying to get things done in his own way. The Bible says GOD is not the author of confusion 1 Corinthians 14:33. Let’s even agreed that he actually heard the voice of GOD before embarking on such a thing but wisdom the Bible says is “profitable to direct” Ecclesiastes 10:10. So where is the application of wisdom in this whole episode of Bishop Isaac?
What if the man had arrested him for trespassing on his property, or he got the building demolished? Bishop Isaac Idahosa would have gone to town with his microphone and loud speakers that he was been persecuted. He would have won the hearts of other yeyelistic Christians around him that the church of GOD was being persecuted, whereas he himself masterminded everything. May GOD Almighty help this generation of ours in JESUS name. Amen.
Finally, Bishop Isaac actually wanted that land free, which means if nobody had showed up after all, hallelujah, it becomes his property by stealing. What a deception!
When King David was asked by Gad to go and put up an altar to the LORD on the grain-floor of Araunah the Jebusite according to word of the LORD, David was offered the land free of charge by Araunah, the owner of the plot of land. But David rejected the offer on the ground that he cannot serve his GOD who has been so merciful unto him without any sacrificial commitment from him. So if King David could humble himself by negotiating the price of the very land GOD asked him to build Him an altar, what biblical justification do Bishop Isaac have here to claim in the light of his sermon of stealing by trick?
2 Samuel 24:18 “AND THAT DAY GAD CAME TO DAVID AND SAID TO HIM, GO UP, AND PUT UP AN ALTAR TO THE LORD ON THE GRAIN-FLOOR OF ARAUNAH THE JEBUSITE.
19 SO DAVID WENT UP, AS GAD HAD SAID AND AS THE LORD HAD GIVEN ORDERS.
20 And Araunah, looking out, saw the king and his servants coming to him: and Araunah went out, and went down on his face to the earth before the king.
21 And Araunah said, Why has my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To give you a price for your grain-floor, so that I may put up an altar to the Lord, and the disease may be stopped among the people.
22 AND ARAUNAH SAID TO DAVID, LET MY LORD THE KING TAKE WHATEVER SEEMS RIGHT TO HIM, AND MAKE AN OFFERING OF IT: see, here are the oxen for the burned offering, and the grain-cleaning instruments and the ox-yokes for wood:
23 ALL THIS DOES THE SERVANT OF MY LORD THE KING GIVE TO THE KING (free of charge). And Araunah said, May the Lord your God be pleased with your offering!
24 AND THE KING (David) SAID TO ARAUNAH, NO, BUT I WILL GIVE YOU A PRICE FOR IT; I WILL NOT GIVE TO THE LORD MY GOD BURNED OFFERINGS FOR WHICH I HAVE GIVEN NOTHING. SO DAVID GOT THE GRAIN-FLOOR AND THE OXEN FOR FIFTY SHEKELS OF SILVER.
25 And there David put up an altar to the Lord, making burned offerings and peace-offerings. So the Lord gave ear to his prayer for the land, and the disease came to an end in Israel.” BBE
And for you pastors shouting ‘another level of grace’, which you usually uses to dupe your members of their hard earned resources by trick, collects their wives from them in the name of she is a worker, defraud them of their wealth in the name of being their spiritual father, converts their landed properties to church in the name of sowing seed, separate marriages that were once bonded in love by false prophecies and false revelations, becoming a parasite on the flesh of your members in order to satisfy your stomach, look, unless you people repent from these your wickedness sincerely, GOD’S judgment is awaiting you all. I hope you people knows that judgment is starting with the church 1 Peter 4:17.
Children of GOD, open your eyes and stop being a zombie in the midst of devourers you called your pastors today, who actually is devouring you but blowing you cool breeze so that you won’t notice.
As many as have ears to hear, let them hear Mark 7:16.
