parable of the Sower, and clearly said that the Seed is the Word of God.
Prosperity preachers lie by saying the Seed is money!
The Seed or Word that fell by the wayside, in hard places, and among thorns were all fruitless. Only the Seed that fell into “good ground” yielded a crop. To the receivers’ God-given ability and resourcefulness, some yielded a crop hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty... (V. 11-12,) “For whoever has, will have abundance, [as explained in the parable of the five, two, and one talents according to the receivers’ ingenuity, Mt. 25:15-29.] The one who received five talents made five more. He who had two gained two more. But the one who had only one buried it. So, the talent of the one who made nothing of it was taken away and given to the one who now had ten talents.] For whoever does not have, even what he has [by his own laziness, fears, passivity, and wrong choices,] will be taken away from him...”
Þ So, to ‘gain’ a hundredfold from God if we ‘tend and keep what He had entrusted to us,’ has nothing to do with giving our money to the church. It is all about personal responsibility and accountability before God; being faithful in everything He delegated to us.
The so-called ‘seed faith, hundredfold return’ is not about getting filthy stinking rich by ‘sowing a seed and getting a hundredfold return.’ We will not get a hundred houses if we give one to Jesus – it’s all about acquiring spiritual and emotional riches while proving ourselves trustworthy to God. We must focus on Eternity above all, not on this earth, which, according to the truth of God’s Word, will not be ‘saved’ through a so-called ‘river of anointing’ or otherwise. Our riches must be in heaven, because in 2 Pet. 3:10-14, it is written that this earth and everything on it is destined for the fire on That Day of the Lord’s return!
Posted on Facebook, 2016, WHAT IS THE REAL TRUTH OF “GIVE, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU”
“A GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER, AND RUNNING OVER WILL BE PUT INTO YOUR BOSOM. FOR WITH THE SAME MEASURE THAT YOU USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED BACK TO YOU?” Does this mean, if you give all your money to the church now, you will receive a hundredfold in return? It is so easy to find the truth of any doctrine clergies are teaching you. Be like the ‘noble Bereans.’ Search the Scriptures in the context of the New Testament Covenant and of the particular verse or passage, to see for yourself if they are telling you the truth!
To understand the ‘good measure pressed down,’ (Lu. 6:38,) let us see what Jesus actually said, beginning in Lu. 6:24, “Woe to you who are rich [in money] now, for you have received your [pay...] Woe to you when all men speak well of you, [ear-tickling ministers, pastors, prophets...] for so did their fathers do to the false prophets... For I say to you who hear [because they desire My truth,] love your enemies, [and you can never love your enemies more than to desire eternal life for them.] Do good to those who hate you, [and you can never do better than to tell those who hate you the truth about everything in your quest to restore them to God.] Bless those who curse you, [and the best way to “bless” revilers is to, if possible, give them the redeeming Gospel of Christ.] And pray for those who spitefully use you, [and the best prayer for abusers is for their redemption from bondage and darkness.]
“If you give, love, do good, lend, to those who give, love, do good, lend to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same to receive as much back. Therefore, [give your] love even [to] your enemies... and you will be children of the Most High, for He is kind to the ungrateful and evil. Therefore, be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful... (Verse 37,) Do not judge and condemn [as in sending souls to hell for their evil,] but forgive [if you cannot solve anything by first speaking to them and thus doing good to them… (Mt. 18:15-20.)”
Þ “[Then, having done the precepts of the Moral Law as described from Lu. 4:24-37, Jesus says in verse 38,] Give, and it will be given to you: a good measure pressed down, shaken together…” This has nothing to do with ‘sowing’ money in the church! It’s all about obedience to Jesus’ New Covenant Law, the Moral Law of Love, (Jn. 13:34.)
Concerning this great Money-Making deception of ‘New Testament tithing,’ which is raw witchcraft and abuse against God, His Holy Word, and the blood-bought body of Christ, the Word of the Living God clearly commands, “Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities,” - Rev. 18:4-5.
2 John v. 9-11 commands, “Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the [true teachings of Christ,] does not have God. He who abides in the [truth] of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring THIS [truth,] do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.”
