ARE YOU PLANTING CHURCHES OR BUSINESS VENTURES?
The LORD gave me this message, and it was early posted at the inception of Healing Hour Ministry, and it is necessary for me to repost it again because the Lord
The New Testament accounts give us an example in the book of Acts 8:26-3 The Ethiopian eunuch was evangelized and baptized by Phillip. Ethiopia saw vibrant church growth in the early centuries after Christ and History links that growth to Phillip’s converts. What are the fruits of your converts?
How are your converts affecting their generation?
If you look around the world today, especially, Africa or America in particular Nigeria. Almost every tier of Government has a Christian with a big Church title working there, upon all corruptions, immoralities or sins are increasing at an alarming rate. The difference between America and Nigeria is that Americans practices their crime legally without forgetting the poor. However, if the corrupt fellow in America doesn’t tie his or her loose end properly and they find any loophole in his or her deal that fellow will pay the full price in areas.
Why is it like that? Ask their secular
Many Churches are bombarding the drug addicts, homosexualism, evil politicians and sinners every day.
I don’t think anyone needed to add evil to any politicians, the name they chose for
Ninety-nine percent of Pastors are still in the business of robbing their church members, even some of them are going to the extent of abusing their members for not giving enough? Many of the Bishops will be cursing their church members, with the approval of a portion of the bible.
There was a pastor called Rev King in Nigeria, he went so far
2010 Thus says the Lord; by 2015 Nigeria remnants shall laugh again. It means the Small remaining quantity of people. Ask God, count my family and me among those that will remain before March 2016 especially for those in Nigeria.
Who Is A Christian M
A Christian missionary is commissioned by the Lord to make disciples, followers of Christ.
Jesus commands all Christians to share the Gospel, the death, and resurrection that conquered the penalty and power of sin. Mathew 28:19-20
Who is a Christian missionary? Contrary to the opinion of many that a missionary is a white man who leaves his job in America or England and heads on to Africa to go and save them from sin and poverty. That is the mentality that most missionaries from the western world still carry till today, yet the crime and poverty around them are more than what any human being can Fathom out. They’re only helping many fraudulent individuals and a few privilege mega-churches pocket in the name of helping the needy in a mission field.
A lot of western missionaries still focus on Africa despite the fact that a church in Africa can buy multiple Churches In western countries. Are the Westerners blind? No! The reason is that many of them have misplaced their priority.
What do you mean? Look around the world today, you will see that most of the western Churches missionaries prefer to go to Africa than many other nations, though many of them might not visit any of the less-privilege places, neither will they attend any of their hospitals. Most of the time they are only going around to be buying souvenirs, play golf, and take pictures with animals. Why? It is because they are imitating the bad attitudes of African’s General Overseers.
In the western world, Churches are not free to fake miracles. Though some of them are doing it for spiritual Gamblers. However, they are not free to abuse their members anyhow without facing the consequence somehow.
Except for the ones that have been hypnotized or prefer to worship a human being. They can’t embezzle their church money at will without being probed, either by the Church governing body or their government.
But in Africa, especially Nigeria; many Bishops and General overseers are more than free to embezzle Church money at will. And believe me, they are doing it with all their influences and shenanigans in the name of touch not my anointed.
”Here I stand. Testify against me in the presence of the LORD and his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? Whose donkey have I taken? Whom have I cheated? Whom have I oppressed? From whose hand have I accepted a bribe to make me shut my eyes? If I have done any of these things, I will make it right.” 1 Samuel 12:3.
If ninety-nine percent of the Bishops, General overseers, Prophets, Prophetesses and pastors in Africa, particular in Nigeria are asked to ask this type of question from their congregations they will go bankrupt.
Western countries ministers love this type of freedom, and they are migrating.
Where Is Godly standard?
Many Churches especially Pentecostals, will ordain a thief in one parish, but excommunicate a tithe defaulter in another parish it depends on how precious you are in their camp.
Many Churches will fire a divorced pastor in Africa but ordained a divorcee and adulterer to be a zonal pastor in foreign countries franchises that they are calling parish. Again it depends on how wealthy or influential you are. Especially if you are the founder of the franchise parish that they are calling churches.
They may bring in a gay or lesbian to come and play instruments for the church and even pay them with tithes money but refuse to accept a poor divorcee as a worker in the church, what a confusion?
Are You Preaching The Good News or Fooling The Poor P
In western countries, many run their Churches under the minimum of two organization names not because they love God, but to swindle government grant in the name of the poor.
Also to use one of the names as a secular entity to crucify Jesus Christ at will by preaching and supporting immoralities. Many Churches are only using the name “missionary” to do the trick for legal stealing.
They are harvesting from the mission fields to build themselves headquarters in ministers home then who is helping who?
What Is The Work Of A Christian Missionary?
1.“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit. Mathew 28:19.
2“It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation. Romans 15:20.
3”But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Book of Acts 1:8.
Who Is A Christian M
A Christian missionary is an ambassador of Jesus Christ;
Does It Mean That You Can’t Be A Missionary Except Through A Church?
Yes, You can! But if the environment you want to reach is not your territory and you don’t have the resources you need you may need their support but not as a franchise.
The truth is that in today’s churches one might not be able to get support unless they are sure of your financial returns on Their investment, that is call franchise fee or remittances.
In such cases, How many souls that are saved is none of their business that is your headache and because many people don’t want to lose their franchise called parish they will water down the Gospel to get more people to help in footing their bills. More people means more tithe and offerings that is the only way out.
CAUTION! Are You Sure God Called You?
If you are sure that the Lord has called you and you want to answer the call; sell all your worldly things; step out in faith; believe Jesus Christ to return them to you in hundred folds.
“Step out to where? Asking this question may mean that God never calls or send you
For the ones that are sure that God calls them this may be extreme. YES, it is! But it is the acid test to know if God is calling you or Money is drawi you.
Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Mathew 19:21.
“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. Mathew 10:37-39.
“Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep. Mathew 10:9-10.
Now is your season of understanding don’t miss out
Read book of Acts 8:1-8
Money and positions are persecuting the churches right now you can take a stand.
Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there.
In that city that God has placed you, what is your impact?
Hunger drove a lot of people from Africa to western countries; now that many of them can eat three square meals successfully many of them are far worse than many of the people they came to in immoralities. Their immoralities are of a higher standard from the pulpits to the pews.
Did You Remember what Lot became of the human race?
If you are not yet born again, you can do so now by saying this prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I cannot help myself. I am a sinner, forgive me my sins. From today, I accept you as my Lord and my Savior.
Thank You for saving me!
