TSD 9 – $65 Million Jet
By Lungisa Joctrey
Listen to us on Stitcher.com
On the Show today we are looking at Creflo A Dollar and His $65 Million Dollar Jet project which is well known as Project G650. And then later we look at the earthquake in Nepal.
We kick off the Show by playing a song by Brother Tshepo of Elpeces Music. I met brother Tshepo in 2008 while I was the Pastor of the Fire Word Ministries International and our ministry team was invited to preach at the church in which he fellowshiped and was in charge of the worship ministry. Before we parted we exchanged contact details. From then until now I had kept his number on my sim card and despite the number of times I changed phones, his number was travelling with me from phone to phone. In March this year we connected again via WhatsApp and I sent him my song titled “Highest Mountain” and he appreciated it. He then gave me the link to his song on Soundcloud.
This is the link to the song Don’t Stay Out Side You can find other songs by him on his playlists on soundcloud.com.
Creflo dollar has been the talk of the proverbial town lately. Thanks to his campaign to raise $65 Million dollars for his new private jet, he managed to attract thousands of critics. It is noted that he didn’t take the criticism kindly and He refused to humble himself, instead he went on to deceive his followers. He tells them that the “enemy” is out to discredit him. He refers to his critics as “the devil” or “the enemy.” To top it all off, he denies that he asked for money to be given towards his plane. We present audio version of the video that was posted on YouTube where Creflo Dollar Ministries was trying to ask for donations towards the plane and their campaign is called Project G650. They said that they believed God for 200 000 ministry partners who would each give $300 dollars in order to make this project a possibility.
Dollar claims that his critics are against the preaching of Jesus but the truth is his critics are opposing him because of the heretical prosperity message that he preaches. This gospel of his, contradicts the very word of the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
(Matthew 6:19-21 KJV)
“And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”
(Luke 12:15 KJV)
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”
(1 Timothy 6:6-11 KJV)
An unfortunate event took Nepal by surprise on the 25th of April 2015. A 7.9 earthquake hit Nepal and killed over 7 000 people and left over 14 000 injured. Some of the ignorant folks might mock the people of Nepal on that they were idol worshippers and for that reason this event came on them. There is a warning from our Lord Jesus Christ concerning comments like that.
“There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
(Luke 13:1-5 KJV)
Nepal’s misfortune should serve as a warning for us, who are more idolatrous than the people of Nepal. Having come to the knowledge of God we still get to be entangled in all forms of lusts, covetousness and other forms of worldly enticements. Just because one has not made a golden calf does not mean they haven’t built one in their minds.
Repent from your Idols!!!
