MIRACLES FOR SALE
Hello again folks! Some folks over here in the United Kingdom are absolutely outraged at Derren Brown's latest escapade on Channel 4 television entitled: "Miracles For Sale" where an unsuspecting member of the British public was trained and prepared to adopt the guise of a pastor and miracle worker in the United States. Brown's 'chosen one' had six months to learn the trade and flourish as a convincing pastor.
But I, for one, am not outraged at all.What this show proves is that there are an awful lot of crooks, charlatans, swindlers and wolves in sheep's clothing out there in 'Churchianity'. There are even True Christians who are open to the vilest deception and subject to their faith being monopolised and their wallets being fleeced because their doctrine is wrong - they believe that born-again believers cannot be deceived. Yet the Lord Himself via His Word constantly warns BELIEVERS about deception in the end times!
What this programme shows is that a lot of what you see in [so-called] 'Word-Faith movement' is at the very best show business and at the very worst soul destroying. We all know the names of the guilty: Benny Hinn ... Kenneth Copeland ... Creflo Dollar ... the list goes on. This programme proves without a doubt what scams are broadcast wall-to-wall on [so-called] 'Christian' TV.
I was actually comforted to see, at the end of the documentary, the same said 'false' pastor warning believers about the deceivers in their midst who are making themselves rich at the expense of sick, ailing and desperate souls. Oh for some actual REAL Pastors to get up at the pulpit and not hold back like this young man did on here tonight. The programme makers stated quite clearly that they intended to expose the fraudsters and not shipwreck the faith of real and honest believers. I guess the sad thing is that because the church can't or won't put its own house in order; we have someone else to do it.
I was asked tonight: "But what about the real miracles; the real folks truly gifted with this ministry?" My answer was this. Where there is the false that the enemy utilizes to distract and deceive - we must consider that there is the True also that God uses by His grace and mercy to confirm His Word and bless folks - according to His Will. Satan is the master forger but God is the Master. Period. When these programmes are broadcast; I wouldn't be outraged - I would look upon it as an opportunity to show folks a truer course settled upon sound doctrine.
DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 25-Apr-2011
