A true man of God will never threaten you with hellfire or poverty just because you refuse to pay 10% of ur monthly earnings


A true man of God speaks against injustice, corruption, fornications, and THEY DO NOT INVITE CORRUPT POLITICIANS ON THE PULPIT.

70% of Nigerian churches are only in it for the money

I actually discussed this issue some days ago with a friend. There are things we take for granted this days.

In the old testament, God send a lion to devour young children for calling a man of God bald headed. We need to be cautious with what we say with your head.

Well written and analysed.. Whatever crime one does and to whomever it is done against has the right to punish such offender,take for Instance in a class,a child is given an assignment to do and he doesn't do it,who will punish the child? The teacher of course, whatever pastors do,say or act we don't have any right to throw tantrums at them instead we should be mindful that we didn't call them rather God and He owns the imperial power to deal with anybody who profanes Him name....

Re: Touch Not My Anointed by jmoore(m): 9:30am On Sep 13
Touch not my anointed is a verse for manipulation..

These pastors think they have monopoly of wisdom.

So pastors are anointed while the members are not anointed?

See how ridiculous it sounds.

Fact: Every Christian is anointed.


You can only threaten babies with 'touch not my anointed'.

The big question is who is God's prophet and annointed. So many self appointed men and prophets parading all over the place in the name of God. Men that play god and believe that they are infallible. Worship God in spirit and in truth. Perhaps you read Mathew 7:22.

You modern pastors are clowns. Suit wearing clowns.

I am sure there were people like you saying the same thing when Jesus was rebuking the Pharisees. All of a sudden you whip out bible verses to scare and stop dissent.

First question. Who anointed you? One conman goes and anoints another burgeoning conman and both now claim to be anointed in scamming people and parting them from their money.
It's funny how that anointing never lets you speak up against politicians thieving money and sitting in the front row of your churches and giving you a share of their stolen wealth. Cecelia Ibru before she was caught was gallivanting about with Redeem Church hierarchy and at no time did their anointing tell them to distance from her. Even Pastor Ize Iyamu will claim to also be an anointed man of God. I even hear that Paul Enenche who was shouting about building churches in a recent video was known to go about in different government parastatals praying for civil servants in high positions in Abuja and hustling his own money. Some of them were later caught with their hands in the till. Anointing my ass.

Second question. Why do you think we should criticize politicians and imams but leave your pastors out? So you want to be able to criticise other religious and secular leaders and insult them when they do something you don't agree with but don't want the same to be done to yours? You are a clown cheesy cheesy

When they insult Buhari they don't remember that elders should be respected. But as soon as their own erring pastors are insulted too they start screaming and playing the respect card. Nonsense.
Their God will bless you.

Until we free ourselves from these mental blocks and really start speaking truth to power in all forms, this country won't move forward.

Imagine saying you can't call pastor's to order because the bible said so. What sort of stupid rubbish is that?

Please to make it clear, D.Freeze is wrong and attention seeking.

However, if a minister swindles, attacks or mocks me in the name of being a minister, he will know that there is a difference between a son of God and a servant of God....I will call him to order and bring him to his knees before the law.

If he attacks the vulnerable or helpless that are dear or related to me, it will take God himself to stop me from slitting his throat by myself. A minister should act like a minister, not an unconverted beast in the guise of being called by God. My actions may be God's judgement to him. It doesn't mean I'm challenging his calling.
What are the evidences that some of these ministers are called by God? Is is becos they built big churches & cathedrals? Is it becos they have large followers? Is it becos they perform miracles which could be stage managed? Is it becos they claim that God called them?. Moses we know, Aaron we know, Joshua we know, Saul we know, David we know, other prophets & disciples in the old & new testaments we know. I have been watching some You tubes where a former Erelu Agbaye (now Erelu Jesu) accused some prominent Pastors & Bishops of being involved in ritual practices. Many of them have gone under ground.

Let's Learn to Remove our Mouth From God's Servant! GOD who Called them knows How to Deal with them if they Go Astray..

You Attract and Acquire Trouble and Curses when you open your Tongue anyhow.

Numbers 16:1-5
1 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:
2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:
3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD?
4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:
5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.

Numbers 16:28-33
28 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.
29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me.
30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.
31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:
32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

Numbers 12:1-10
1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.
3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
5 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

2 Kings 2:23-25
23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
25 And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria.


we are also forgetting a passage in the bible
1Cor.6.1 - If any of you has a dispute with another, dare he take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the saints?
1Cor.6.2 - Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?
1Cor.6.3 - Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!
1Cor.6.4 - Therefore, if you have disputes about such matters, appoint as judges even men of little account in the church!
1Cor.6.5 - I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers?
1Cor.6.6 - But instead, one brother goes to law against another--and this in front of unbelievers!
1Cor.6.7 - The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?
1Cor.6.8 - Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers.

Let me relate the issue, if you feel your pastor made a mistake or you feel they did something wrong,
you can approach them in the presence of Fellow believers and delivery the suit or you meet him one on one. Pray for him and treat him with love. no one is above mistake. But a public bashing is very wrong.
Sadly most Churches this days are far from what Apostle Paul said in his letters in 1 Corinthians.

so in summary what ever dispute should be settled in the church away from the ears of unbelievers.
as this enables More Love to be built within brethens.


and truth be told the Muslim Brethren are actually following this passage more than the Christian brethren.
Hardly will you see a Non-muslim interfere in their issues

9 And David said to Abishai, Destroy him not: for who can stretch forth his hand against the LORD's anointed, and be guiltless?


PAUL
Paul once had an incident where the Highpriest ordered him to be slapped . He insulted the highpriest without knowing he was high priest . But when his attention was brought to it , he apologized .

Acts 23:2-5
2 And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth. 3 Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law? 4 And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God's high priest? 5 Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.


These days we have people especially on this Forum insulting ministers . It is error which carry curses . If a minister did wrong against the law let the law handle the matter , if it’s against God , let God handle the matter . But stop putting your mouth especially in things that’ you may even be wrong about in your own limited understanding




Uncle,

In your bid to glorify these men, you seem eager to place yourself below them.

I urge you to accept the fact that they are not more blessed than you or me, neither does God love them more than He loves us.

We are all equal before God, and each one of us, if willing, God has an anointing for us to be vessels unto honour in His house.

Even an Usher needs God's anointing to function. I have personally seen an Usher pray and a blind man's eyes opened during Reinhard Bonkke's crusade.

Never forget that, and it shall be well with you.......or are you not God's anointed too?

Me I am also anointed o, I am among those God says to "touch not".

this is purely your opinion. anyone who reads the whole of psalm 105 would understand that God's anointed refers to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jocab and God regarded these people as his prophets as He revealed his plans to them and through them they were fulfilled.

Not just ministers of God. It is very wrong for a younger person to insult an elderly person. Be it Buhari, Oyedepo, Imam, etc.

People should learn to express their opinions without insults.

Religious leaders should not insult anyone too, whether younger or elderly.

All human beings deserve respect.
A president has lost his right to public respect if he misbehaves.

That is why he is president. He is a public servant, not a king.

Freeze's controversy aside, I do not see why we can criticize the actions of political leaders, traditional rulers, and not religious leaders. Every organization will wither away without criticism.

Exodus 22:28
28 Thou shalt not revile God, nor curse the ruler of thy people.

...even refers more to a Buhari or GEJ than to an Oyedepo or Ibiyeomie. But these men had no qualms criticizing laws and policies of the government. The recent CAMA law is a good case in question. They should thus open their own doors and windows to correction.

They should not tolerate insults though.

On another note, these churches are products of a rebellion by Martin Luther against the church leadership. Just saying...

The question is who is annointed? What makes a man annointed? Just because a man says so doesnt mean it is. Even Jesus charged his followers to test all spirits. Also to be wise and not take in anything anyone is saying

Numbers 16:1-5
1 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:
2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:
3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD?
4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:
5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.

Numbers 16:28-33
28 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.
29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me.
30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.
31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:
32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

Numbers 12:1-10
1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.
3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
5 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

2 Kings 2:23-25
23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
25 And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria.
which God called them? People like you are what Martin Luther fought for. Emancipate yourself from religious slavery....

Re: Touch Not My Anointed by Mordecai(m): 10:32am On Sep 13
In the early days of the church, devotees paid for indulgences as part of the way to salvation.

In the teaching of the Catholic Church, an indulgence (Latin: indulgentia, from indulgeō, 'permit') is "a way to reduce the amount of punishment one has to undergo for sins"...
...
...By the late Middle Ages indulgences were used to support charities for the public good including hospitals.

(Culled from Wikipedia. Read more at https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indulgence )

Enter Martin Luther.

He came to reject several teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic Church; in particular, he disputed the view on indulgences. Luther proposed an academic discussion of the practice and efficacy of indulgences in his Ninety-five Theses of 1517. His refusal to renounce all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Holy Roman Emperor. Culled from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Luther )

The movement led by Martin Luther laid the foundation for the Reformation, and the growth of the Protestant wing of Christianity. His views on celibacy led to the present ability of Christian clergy to marry and raise families. Mind you, all these were done in blatant disregard of the then church leadership, even under the banner of excommunication.

Today, these beneficiaries of the Reformation now want total, unquestioning submission by their adherents? When the foundation of Luther's rebellion was that salvation and, consequently, eternal life are not earned by good deeds (including tithing) but are received only as the free gift of God's grace through the believer's faith in Jesus Christ as redeemer from sin; and that the Bible is the only source of divinely revealed knowledge, not the office of the Pope (or of the present day GOs)?

If only the founders of the evangelical movement would see what it has turned to in Africa.

Modern "Men of God" have put themselves up for ridicule with their wanton and unbridled lust for earthly riches and power.

On judgement day, not one of them will be able to use their Daddy G. O, Apostle, Reverend, Pastor etc titles to make it to Heaven.

They will all be on the queue like the rest of us and be judged, mainly on their actions in showing that they believe that Jesus Christ is the truth and the only way, like the rest of us.

It is easier for a Camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich anointed Daddy.

It is unscriptural to insult or rebuke ministers of God . A new generation seem to be ingnorant of principles of the scripture and the consequences of violating them which carry curses

Psalms 105:15
Touch not mine anointed,
and do my prophets no harm.


Sometimes in this forum I Have heard some ignorant people say that the verse above is for all Isreal and not men of God . If you think so You must have gotten your Theology upside down. Firstly is the whole of Isreal anointed . Is the whole of Isreal prophets ? That verse was making Reference to Patriacts and prophets Abraham and Isaac Before whom God rebuked Kings for touching their wives .

Psalms 105:14-15
14 He suffered no man to do them wrong:
yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed,
and do my prophets no harm.


Genesis 26:11
11 And (KING)Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.


That explanation should be enough for he wise.

God anointed 3 offices in the Bible days . The king ,The priest and The prophet. God gave instructions to have respect for such. And by That we have no right to insult such men

Exodus 22:28
28 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.


Remember that this rulers were ministers anointed by God “priest and prophets

The same way today God has annointed ministers over Gods people .

What if a minister do wrong ? That still doesn’t give us the right to curse or insult them . A minister can only be rebuke by God or someone higher than him but not a surbodinate . I will give you 3 instances In scripture .

MOSES
He was the man by who the law came , yet he was the first to brake the law of intermarriage . He married an Ethiopian woman when the wife left him. Aaron and Miriam who were surbodiates Spoke against Moses for his wrong .

Numbers 12:1
1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.


God judged them instantly read the rest of the story . Miriam became leprous on this account .

Same things goes for the sons of Korah and elders who stood against Moses for having too much authority claiming that “they are all anointed “

Numbers 16:3
3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD?


DAVID AND SAUL

It was evident that Saul was a backsliden King. Even though David had been chose to take over he would not violate scripture principle despite the Fact that Saul wanted to kill him . He had had numerous opportunities to kill Saul but wouldn’t do it because of the anointing upon Saul as head . Especially when his servant Abishai asked David permission to kill Saul

1 Samuel 26:9
9 And David said to Abishai, Destroy him not: for who can stretch forth his hand against the LORD's anointed, and be guiltless?


PAUL
Paul once had an incident where the Highpriest ordered him to be slapped . He insulted the highpriest without knowing he was high priest . But when his attention was brought to it , he apologized .

Acts 23:2-5
2 And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth. 3 Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law? 4 And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God's high priest? 5 Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.


These days we have people especially on this Forum insulting ministers . It is error which carry curses . If a minister did wrong against the law let the law handle the matter , if it’s against God , let God handle the matter . But stop putting your mouth especially in things that’ you may even be wrong about in your own limited understanding

It depends on who annointed them. We Isrealites do not recognize gentile prophets. The Most High never sent gentiles to prophesy of ISRAEL. Those with a gentile message cannot speak to Israel in the name of YAH.

The Moses you call... do you think he was a white man or European? was he not mistaken for Egyptian?

Enough of the Whiteman worshipping. angry
