The Most Miserable Church – The Paid Sheep Membership
The modern day church is the most embarrassing and miserable church to my opinion. It has moved away from the truth and it is being slowly infiltrated by all sorts of wicked evil beasts that seek to kill and destroy all the flocks of God. This modern day church is fast asleep while the devil and his cohorts march in freely all the way from the door to the pulpit in order to teach the people of God with one objective in mind and that is to lead them astray. The so called bride of Christ is actively committing adultery with idols and heretical teachings and practices.
I am very concerned by the ignorance of the Christians of today. Many Christians know just about anything that is happening in the world than they know about what God has to say in the bible. The young people know more about the music charts and the pop idols than knowing the will of God for each day. Church buildings are packed with goats that go there for entertainment and they wear name tags that are labelled “Christian – A Paid Sheepfold Member.” The church is losing its status of being the sheepfold of God and has now become a place where goats meet to pay the hired clowns who will in return feed them all the garbage that get no one to heaven. There are no more sheep in most churches because
- The goats chase them away
- The shepherd clowns/wolves fed on them and then turned their sheepskin into clothing in order to attract more sheep that will come and be served for dinner, while the goats enjoy the show.
- The owner of the sheep, the Master Shepherd has taken them away from these blood thirst wolves and placed them under the care of the true shepherd who serves the will of his Master
Whatever the reason is, it remains true that many church buildings have become night clubs and movie theatres, some have gone to such an extreme as to become a circus, where all sort of demonic activity is for show. There are more motivators than preachers and sin is never challenged because the paying goats will be offended and therefore cease the funding of the circus. The goats are never interested in becoming sheep because they will have to change their diet and lifestyle, so instead of being transformed they think it would work better for them of they buy or rent the sheep status. The Sheep Membership status is charged according to the level of the wage or salary that the goat earns from their work. The requested share of the salary or wage is 10% and then the goat will be encouraged or sometimes threatened to give a little more in order to get more benefits which are only reserved for sheep. You may want to call that Sheep Membership Plus Account. That is often backed up by Malachi 3:10-12.
It is very strange that this section of the bible is well emphasized in the modern church buildings, while other sections are not well attended to. For example, chapter 20 of Exodus verses 8-11 which talks about resting on the Sabbath Day and the keeping of this day holy. It seems like the wolves are not interested on the rest of neither goats nor sheep, they are making business with the Tithing law and there is very little chance that the Sabbath law will benefit any of the wolves. If tithing were to be kept because it is the command from God and that God promises to protect and bless the sheep, why is not the law of the Sabbath kept because it is also command from God and God made promises to the keeper of this law?
Let us look at these laws
The law of Tithing as quoted in Malachi
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.” (Malachi 3:10-12 KJV)
And now, let us look at how this is to be applied and who should benefit on the proceedings brought as per application of the law of tithing, as shown in the book of Deuteronomy.
“Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always. And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household, And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee. At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates: And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.” (Deuteronomy 14:22-29 KJV)
As we can see in Malachi 3, that God commanded that the tithes must be brought in the storehouse so that there may be food in His house. The statement “that there may be meat (food) in my house” is by no means referring to the house(s) of God’s servants nor of the Levites nor of the prophets. It refers to the house of God. The beneficiaries of the collections of Tithes are stated in Deuteronomy and these are:
- The Levite
- The Stranger/Traveller/Pilgrim
- The Fatherless/Orphan
- The Widow
I have much doubt that all these beneficiaries receive their fair share of the proceedings from the tithe collections. I am not off the mark by so saying, because, first of all we don’t have the Levites in the churches today neither can the pastors nor the preachers qualify to be addressed as such. If the Lord Jesus Christ did away with the law as is taught in the modern day churches, then the Levites shouldn’t exist because they were appointed under provision of the law, which would be now inapplicable. If the law is no longer applicable, the principle of tithing will then be of no effect because it is only enforced by the law although this principle did not originate from the law. Tithing was first done by Abraham when he met Melchizedek the priest of the most high God (Genesis 14:18-20; Hebrews 7:1). To say that it was instituted before the law was given by Moses’ hand does not mean that the people must be forced to keep this principle. The Sabbath was also made known before Moses came.
The law of the Sabbath was instituted on the Seventh day when God finished the work of creation. The week has always been seven days and on the seventh day God commanded rest. Why don’t we hear these hypocritical prosperity preachers teach people this command? It is because this command offers no gain for them. So, as much as tithing has a promise, the Sabbath keeping also has a promised attached to it, see Isaiah:
“Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.” (Isa 56:1-8)
As you can see that God is making a promise on Sabbath keeping, not only to the Israelites or the Jews but also to the non-Jewish people, the Gentiles (to be exact). We the non Jewish Christians have enjoined our self to God through His Son and are claiming to be keeping the commands of God in keeping the tithing principle, but we are doing ourselves no justice because we have neglected another command on which God has even a better promise than that in Malachi, when he says on the quote above, “Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.”
Besides the heresy and the twisting of scripture that is brought in by the wolves into the church, I am concerned by those individuals who call themselves Christian and yet at the same time doubt or ignore the Bible or are offended by it. I fail to comprehend this behaviour. These people only read the nicer parts of the bible and the hard condemning negative part of it they ignore. They say they trust the word of God which is the bible, but at the same time they distrust it in the matters pertaining to sin and the punishment thereof. A vast majority of those who claim to be Christians are failing to believe that there is a place called hell. They doubt that God can cast people into such a horrible place.
I don’t blame these people. The blame must be laid upon their teachers who should be telling them the truth but are cowards and therefore opt to lie to them, giving them false hope concerning the future. I am not surprised that even the preachers do not believe in the straight forward biblical preaching of the gospel anymore. This is evident by the amount of events and activities that appeal to the flesh which the churches are organising in order to increase attendance in their local church buildings. When these people (the unbelievers) get into these church concerts they get entertained and are told that God loves them. They walk out justified in their sins, knowing that God loves them no matter how much they get to sin.
Many of these goats find a platform in these churches to perform and build their fame. Their sin is not challenged as long as they use their talents for God. They can get themselves a girlfriend from this church and fornicate with her as long as he uses his talent for God and also use his talent to bring in more goats like him who will bring in the tithes and offerings to help the pastors and the shareholders of this church business get rich. He can sing worldly music as long as he throws a few words like Jesus, Lord or God in his demonic song. No one will suspect him if the song says Jesus. It doesn’t matter what he sings about Jesus as long as the song say Jesus or Christ then the song is Christian and can be sung at church to entertain the ever demanding paying goats.
On the contrary to the mentality of the cowardly goat centred churches, the bible teaches in the book of Revelation saying,
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).
And again in 1 Corinthians, “I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.” (1Co 5:9-13).
And again “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God” (1Co 6:9-10). There is no nicer way of the saying this except for the Bible way!!
