Pastor Lie that You need THEM as your teacher
Despite what modern Christianity teaches in organized church, Jesus did NOT give ANY room for pastors to be our Teachers. This is what Jesus said in Matthew chapter 23:8-10 “But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are ALL brethren. Do not call anyone on earth you father, for One is your Father, He who is in Heaven. And do not be called Teachers; for ONE is your Teacher, the Christ.” Jesus also said this in John 14:26; “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, HE will teach you ALL things, and bring to your remembrance ALL things that I said to you.” Jesus did NOT leave ANY ROOM for a pastor or ANY MAN to be your teacher or your spiritual guidance. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to be the Teacher. He Himself gives us His Holy Spirit, HE teaches us and HE guides us! Are you led by the Holy Spirit? Or do you follow the sermons of a pastor? May the grace of Jesus be with you.
Pastor Lie regarding FALSE HUMILITY
Beware of pastors and teachers who are defiled with pride who think they are better than others because of their knowledge of the Bible and their supposed knowledge of God. This is what Jesus said in Mark chapter 7, I'm starting in verse 20, "and He said, what comes out of a man, that defiles a man, for from within, out of the heart of men precedes evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil-eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness, all these evil things come from within and defile a man." Many pastors and preachers and teachers defile themselves because they are so prideful. They are not humble brothers and sisters before the Lord, they think that they are better than others because of their scripture knowledge, but true brothers and sisters in the Lord look at what Jesus says about them, this is found in John chapter 7, I'm going to start in verse 37. "On the last day, that great day of the feast Jesus stood and cried out saying, 'If anyone thirsts let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me as the scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of Living Water." But this He spoke concerning the Spirit whom those believing in Him would receive, for the Holy Spirit was not given because Jesus was not yet glorified." Today Jesus is glorified and His children receive His Holy Spirit with joy. If you are a brother or sister in the Lord that has received the Holy Spirit, when you speak you are speaking out of that bubbling of your heart, that River of Living Water that the Holy Spirit has put there. And if you truly are a child of God, you are sharing and spreading the good news that the Holy Spirit told you. You're not speaking out of pride or arrogance but your own testimony. And that is why Jesus says this in John Chapter 7, "He who believes in Me, as scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of Living Water." It is a joy to know Jesus and to have his truth and His Revelation in us. He speaks to us in dreams and visions, He answers our prayers when we pray, because Jesus is alive He loves His children and He speaks to them. I encourage you to be a child of God, to hear the Lord Jesus and to have this Fountain of Living Water in you. When you speak, speak out of the truth that the Holy Spirit put there, not out of pride like the pastors. They think that they know God. They can't come to Jesus because they are so prideful. They think they already know who God is and they will never come to the truth, unless they repent of their pride and their arrogance and thinking that they are better than others. Don't listen to these pastors and preachers and teachers. Receive the Holy Spirit and become a brother or sister in the Lord. Have the love of Jesus in you. And that way when you speak, you will also have the love of Jesus in you. You won't be like the teachers and the pastors and the elders and the deacons who are full of pride and arrogance. Don't be like them because the Judgment of God is coming upon the wicked. It is coming upon those who are proud and arrogant. But the grace of God is with the humble. Be humble of heart, receive the words of the Holy Spirit. Stay closed with Jesus and you will have everlasting life. May the grace of Jesus be with you.
Pastor Lie about Getting Paid to Preach
The majority of pastors and Bible preachers today are working for money and they are working for men. They are not working for the Kingdom of GOD and HIS purpose. I want to expose this truth to you because so many people will just say; “well, isn’t it biblical to pay pastors?” and they will quote many verses that they have found in the Bible such as “Don’t muzzle the ox while he eats…” and “A worker deserves his wages…” see these people are willing to uphold the Bible, and they love to hear every new sermon from every new pastor, but they could care less if they are actually hearing from Jesus Himself! Most sadly do NOT hear from Jesus. And many don’t even WANT to hear from Jesus. But if YOU want to know the TRUTH and if you want to be set free from sin and bondage and lies, and you want a real relationship with Jesus then I am encouraging you GO DIRECTLY TO HIM. Because Jesus is alive and HE will speak to you. You don’t need the middle-man. You don’t need the pastor, you don’t need the teacher. But you need the HOLY SPIRIT. Jesus said that there is only ONE Teacher, and that is HE WHO IS IN HEAVEN, THE CHRIST! You should not have many teachers, you should go to Jesus and receive the REAL Teacher, the Holy Spirit. Pastors like to say “WE are the teacher…” They like to say; “We will help you in your relationship with God…” See, they want to be the middle-man, they want to be the one who is in the middle of you and GOD, to help you get to God, but that is a lie. THAT is the ministry of the HOLY SPIRIT. When you go in prayer and ask Jesus for the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is the One who will intercede for you and help you to pray. But you have to be serious about going to the Lord in prayer. NOT to these men, not to the pastors, not to the middle-man. You know, one guy told me; “It’s biblical to pay pastors, and if you didn’t pay the pastor after he spoke the word of God to you, that would be like if you owned a house and had a problem with your plumbing and hired a plumber and then didn’t’ pay that plumber…” You know if you own a house and you hire a plumber, that plumber is coming over to your house to fix your toilet or your sink… that plumber is working for YOU. But if someone is really working for GOD, THEY ARE NOT WORKING FOR YOU, THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE LORD. JESUS IS THEIR BOSS, NOT YOU! You know, the pastors in the churches, I want to expose this to you, they do not have one boss, Jesus is not their boss. They have perhaps 500 bosses, and you know who they are? They’re every single man and women who sits in the seats in that church. THEY are the pastors bosses. They are serving MEN and they are serving MONEY, NOT JESUS AND NOT HIS KINGDOM. You know, someone might say; “Well, my pastor doesn’t work for money, he is a volunteer…” Well, many pastors I presume don’t make much money at all, I didn’t make a whole lot of money as a professional pastor. There’s other jobs that you can make a lot more money. But still they’re working for money and still JESUS is not their only boss. They are concerned more about their 500 bosses that are sitting in those pews in church, or those maybe 50 bosses who boss them around in the church. JESUS has to be OUR ONLY BOSS. WE CANNOT SERVE MULTIPLE MASTERS. See, when you are working for money and multiple bosses, you will do whatever THOSE people say, because they are the ones who are paying your paycheck, and they are the ones who are telling you what you have to say. If you start preaching a gospel of JESUS that they don’t like, you’re not going to be on their pulpit very long, you’re going to be kicked out the door. But if you are truly a servant of Jesus, you’re not concerned what people say, you are not concerned about their money, because you know that the Lord Jesus provides! The Lord Jesus provides for me, and my concern is the Kingdom of God and winning souls to HIM, not appeasing the ears of people in church. You know, I have sent out a lot of shirts to people, and the Lord Jesus convicted me not to ever preach for money again. And so I also send, you know shirts out free of charge, not asking people for money. But I could rightfully ask people for money to pay the shipping or to pay for the shirts, that would not be wrong of me. Nor would it be wrong if I was preaching the gospel somewhere and stayed in someone’s house, for them to give me a donation or for me to eat their food, it wouldn’t be wrong, as Jesus said; “The worksman is worthy of his wages.” But we have to make SURE that we are REALLY working for Jesus, that we are working for the KING, NOT FOR MONEY. Most pastors, I’m telling you, they’re working for the MONEY, they’re not working for Jesus.
Pastor Lie About Preaching as a Hireling (Just as Jesus said NOT to do
Having been a pastor myself and having gone to Bible College I still have many books such as commentaries, people's opinions, Bible dictionaries and resources that were to supposedly help me through college and to be a good pastor. One of the commentaries that I have is the commentary of J. Vernon McGee, who in the Christian world was very respected. This commentary is volume 4 of Matthew through Romans. But I want to first read to you what Jesus said in John chapter 10. He said, "I am the Good Shepherd, the Good Shepherd gives HIS life for the sheep, but a hireling, he who is not the Shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the Good Shepherd and I know My sheep and I'm known by My own."
What the pastor's do not want you to know, and maybe they do not even know themselves, is that they ARE the hireling that Jesus was speaking about. A hireling is obvious, it is someone who is paid to do certain work, in this case to bring you the gospel. Anyone who is paid to bring the gospel by anyone else other than Jesus, is a hireling, someone that is hired by men, and Jesus said when a hireling, when someone who is paid to do the work sees a wolf coming, a bad guy, they run away. The Good Shepherd who is Jesus Christ, HE lays down HIS life for His sheep, HE cares for His people and He guides them. He really loves and cares for their soul. Pastors care about your money they care about you being in church. They care about numbers. But they could care less for your soul.
I want to read to you what J. Vernon McGee thought about John chapter 10 about the hirelings. He said, "The hireling does not care for the sheep, the founders of some of the world religions did very little for their followers. Modern cult leaders actually get rich off of the people. In contrast to this, the Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep, and He protects his own." So according to J. Vernon McGee or a pastor or preacher, a hireling is someone who is a cult leader or of a different religion other than Christianity. They certainly couldn't be the paid pastors in the organized churches.
The pastors and the preachers in the churches will never come out and tell their flock that they are the hirelings fleecing their flock and stealing from them. They will never tell them that they really want their money and they don't care for their soul. They will not tell them to go to Jesus that Jesus cares for their soul that He is the Good Shepherd and the only one able to lead them and guide them. The hirelings want their flocks money they could care less if they are going to heaven or to hell. They want numbers, they want money. Jesus is the Good Shepherd HE cares for your soul and if you listen to Him, He will guide you into everlasting life. Don't listen to the hirelings who leave when a wolf comes and who only want your money. Go to Jesus who is the lover of the soul and well-equipped to lead you and ALL of those who have true faith into everlasting life. May the grace of Jesus be with you.
So, what what should a pastor do? A Real Pastor Will do THIS
A real pastor or teacher will teach you to be led by the good shepherd, to be taught by GOD. (Not by himself) I want to read to you what the Apostle Paul wrote about shepherds and teachers. This is found in Ephesians chapter 4, I’m going to start in verse 11; “And He (which is Jesus) Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into HIM who is the head- CHRIST- from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”
If truly a pastor or preacher or teacher is of God they teach others to follow JESUS as the good Teacher. A real pastor doesn’t say “Come and follow me…” But they push you towards Jesus because they know that Jesus is the good pastor, He is the good shepherd. Sadly many of the teachers are teaching that THEY are the teacher. Many of the pastors are teaching that THEY are the good shepherd. They may not say that with their words, but with their actions and their teachings that is what they show. If really a pastor has pointed you to Jesus, he has done his job by pointing you to the good shepherd/pastor. No longer does he need to feed you every day, you don’t need to go to his cannel or his church every single week. You just go straight to JESUS being in the hands of the LORD. Are you going to Jesus or are you going to pastors and teachers? The problem with people going to men, to these pastors and teachers is they are led away by every wave of new doctrine. They are unstable in their ways. Instead of listening to Jesus and being led by His Holy Spirit they get confused when the shepherd starts to shepherd them in the wrong direction. When the teacher starts to teach the wrong thing they are led astray because they are not led by the Holy Spirit, not by the good shepherd, but they are led by this man who does NOT hold all truth. Jesus holds all truth. SO go to Jesus, be led by Him, and if anyone is teaching it should be only that JESUS Is the GOOD Teacher. May the grace of Jesus be with you
