HOW PROSPERITY GOSPEL PASTORS TWIST BIBLE TO CONTROL PEOPLE’S MIND – TO SILENCE AND BEWITCH THEM – Psalms 105:15
Psalms 105:15 KJV
“Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm”
Below are some of the scriptures that have been twisted to bewitch some gullible and deceived Christians for the prosperity of plague of silence and the continued reign of the devaluation of human worth in Christendom.
Psalms 105:15 “Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” For better understanding of this scriptural verse let us read from verse 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.”
God made this statement in favor of the children of Israel when they were moving from Egypt to the Promised Land (Canaan Land) because throughout the Old Testament they were the chosen of the LORD God – they are the anointed of God on earth in the Old Testament times: Exodus 19:5-6 and Deuteronomy 28:1 “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel…… And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.”
The word “anointed” here in Psalms 105:15 is for all the children of God because God kept them in their movement from the land of Egypt throughout the wilderness to the Promised Land (Canaan Land) making sure and saying no other people on the earth should touch them. But many pastors twisted this Psalms 105:15 to mean that it is only for the anointed men of God!
Have this scriptural revelation knowledge and understanding that in this dispensation of the New Testament, the word “anointed” is for all the genuinely born again Christians (not only for men of God) because the Holy Spirit resides/dwells in you.
In the Old Testament times, the Holy Spirit did manifest in three (3) categories of people: (1) The priests, (2) The prophets and (3) The kings. Even the Holy Spirit was not living inside them – He would make use these three categories of people and after using them, He would go back to Heaven. All other Israelites would have to visit the prophets and priests to know the mind of God and the Law of Moses as regards any issue of their lives where they needed God’s attention and when they wanted to hear from God.
But on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit finally came down and permanently stayed to live inside every genuinely born again Christian – and this is what make us far better than and greater than Old Testament believers as the Holy Spirit lives inside us and we become the temples of the Holy Spirit – and this is reason why every genuinely born again Christian is anointed by the Holy Spirit: Acts 2:1-4, 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 and Hebrews 1:9 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance…….Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are…….Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”
What is the meaning of anoint?
“Anoint” means to set someone apart, to authorize and equip him or her for a task of spiritual importance. Jesus Christ is set apart by the work of the Holy Spirit for His ministry of preaching, healing and deliverance. The Holy Spirit sets Christians apart for their ministry in Christ’s name: Acts 13: 1 – 4 “Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.”
God anointed the Lord Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit: Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”
The word “anointed” mentioned in Psalms 105:15 means God set the children of Israel apart from all the nations of the world in the Old Testament times.
But in this dispensation of the New Testament, God uses the Holy Spirit to anoint all the genuinely born again Christians – it is not only men of God that are anointed but all the true Christian believers worldwide are anointed by the Holy Spirit. Therefore “Touch not mine anointed” in Psalms 105:15 also applies to you – not only to your pastor because God has used the Holy Spirit to anoint you the day you gave your life to Christ (when you are truly born again).
In Psalms 105:15, God is saying to the unbelievers not to touch you (the believer) – not to harm you because you are carrying the anointing of the Holy Spirit: 1 John 2:27 “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” For that reason, you are in right and best position as the “anointed of God” to use scriptures correctly to speak loudly/publicly against many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God; you are to use scriptures correctly as the “anointed of God” to fight and destroy the prevailing plague of silence and bewitchment in Nigerian/African churches.
Another scripture always twisted by many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God is Numbers 16:1-50 where some leaders in Israel in the wilderness turned against Moses, that is, Korah’s Rebellion which is a challenge to the priesthood in the wilderness. Korah, Dathan, and Abiram who Led a rebellion against Moses did not have the Holy Spirit dwelling inside them unlike in this time of New Testament dispensation – they lacked the word of God to challenge the wrong/false teaching of the priesthood in the wilderness. The rebellion of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram was not by the word of God and the Holy Spirit because they neither had the word of God nor the Holy Spirit: John 14:26 and 1 John 2:20, 27 “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you…..But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.”
Many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God twisted and used Numbers 16:1-50 to scare the genuinely born again Christians not to challenge them in order not to give them room to correctly use scriptures publicly to speak against their erroneous teachings and wrongdoings/evil practices in the church.
They will twist and use Numbers 16:1-50, that it is a rebellion to challenge the authority of the church leadership for teaching heresies and wrong/evil practices in the church which are contradictory to the apostle Paul’s doctrine and apostles’ doctrine whereas the early church in the Bible continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine: Acts 2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship……”
Many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God use Number 12:1-15; the example of Miriam (the elder sister of Moses) who was afflicted with leprosy for criticizing Moses. All those Old Testament believers never had the Holy Spirit dwelling inside them because they are not born again – the Lord Jesus Christ did not die for them; they were operating under the Law of Moses.
All the genuinely born again Christians are anointed by the Holy Spirit and operating under the New Testament of grace and truth that came by Jesus Christ: Romans 10:4 and John 1:17 “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth…..For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ”.
It is the Holy Spirit who dwells in you as a true born again and as a result of this, it makes you anointed so that you will be able to use the scriptures correctly to fight and destroy the plague of silence that has ravaged Christianity and bewitched many Christians in Nigeria/Africa – 1 John 2:20, 27, 1 Corinthians 3 :16, 1 Corinthians 6:19 2 Corinthians 6:16 and John 14:17, and Hebrews 1:9: But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him….. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? ……… What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? ……. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people…….Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you…… Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”
If you are genuinely born again, you love righteousness and hate iniquity, then God Himself has anointed you with the Holy Spirit, so you are anointed to correctly use scriptures to break forth and destroy the prevailing wind of plague of silence that has bewitched many Christians and kept them in the bondage/captivity of “the culture of don’t ask questions” and “the culture of the elders are always right” in Nigerian/African churches.
Have this spiritual understanding that nothing shall by any means hurt you because you are already sealed with the Holy Spirit: Ephesians 1:13 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.”
We are to correctly use the scriptures to stop manipulations, misinterpretations, misapplication and abuse of the word of God for deceptions, false doctrine, gospel of bring money for God’s blessings and wrong doings/evil practices by many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of our Heavenly Father (God). We are to correctly use the scriptures to rebuke and correct them so that the minds and brains of many Christians that have been captured and put in captivity (bondage) by them will be free because knowing the truth of the word of God makes the mind and brain free: 2 Timothy 3:16 and John 8:32 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness….. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Let us the true children of God arise and use all scripture correctly to uproot every false doctrine, gospel of bring money to receive God’s blessings, wrongdoing, evil practice, and plague of silence that our Heavenly Father (God) has not planted in Christianity which many pastors are using to destroy the vineyard of God and merchandise the Christians for money making: Matthew 15:13 “But he (Jesus Christ) answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”
Do you know that if you correctly use all scripture to correct in love any man of God or any General Overseer who has fallen into doctrinal error or who is into any form of wrong practice, wrong doing, evil practice/doing in Christianity, nothing evil would happen to you? If any man of God or any General Overseer does not continue steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship (Acts 2:42) as well as not continued steadfastly in Apostle Paul’s doctrine; and you correctly use all scripture to correct him in love, nothing evil shall happen to you. Even when the Pharisees said the Lord Jesus Christ as the prophet was using the power of Beelzebub the prince of the devils to cast out devils in Matthew 12:24, God and Jesus Christ did not strike them to death! Terrible things did not happen to them, but rather the Lord Jesus Christ wants genuine repentance for them.
In the New Testament, once a true Christian believer (genuinely born again) has both the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit within/inside and infilling power of the Holy Spirit upon through the Holy Ghost baptism, God always gives spiritual anointing to such a believer – 2 Corinthians 1:21 KJV “Now he (God) which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God.” In the New Testament, all the true Christian believers (the genuinely born again) are anointed with the Holy Spirit by God Himself. This scripture did not mention that it is your pastor who anoints you with the Holy Spirit and makes or establishes you to stand firm in Christ; it is God as He is the One who anointed the Lord Jesus Christ also – Acts 10:38 KJV “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”
CHRISTIANS CAN SCRIPTURALLY JUDGE THEMSELVES WITH THE WORD OF GOD
(Scripturally “No” to the culture of unbroken silence in the church)
The culture of unbroken silence against unscriptural/evil practices in the church must be scripturally broken in the Christian community in Nigeria/Africa. Do you know that Christians can scripturally judge themselves in love with the word of God? That is plague of silence is not permitted in the body of Christ (the church of our Lord Jesus Christ) if any Christians including the General Overseers fall into doctrinal error or any form of evil practice/wrongdoing in Christianity. The word of God says we should judge ourselves so that we would not be judged with the world: 1 Corinthians 11:31-32 “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.”
The scripture says we should judge whatever any man of God (prophet) says whether it is in line with the word of God or not – you cannot just swallow whatever any man of God tells you: 1 Corinthians 14:29 “Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.”
It is from the church that the Lord Jesus Christ will raise the genuinely born again Christians as “saviours” (deliverers/reformers/change agents) who will speak publicly against false doctrines, gospel of bring money to receive God’s blessings, wrongdoings, evil practices, and plague of silence that our Heavenly Father (God) has not planted in Christianity.
it is from the church that God will raise saviours for the kingdom of God to rescue Nigerian/African churches from many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God: Obadiah 1:21 and Nehemiah 9:27 “And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s……… Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies.”
The prosperity pastors twist Bible for the mind control, mind conditioning, mind programming and mind manipulation of people to create plague of silence in the church. They twist scriptures to create master – servant relationship in Christendom.
Please read this scripture with spiritual understanding: Galatians 3:25 -28 KJV “But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Christianity is following the life and teaching of Christ. It is following the dictates of the Lord Jesus Christ. – not of the General Overseer/pastor. There was no Christianity in the Old Testament because Jesus didn’t come in their own time – He didn’t die for them. We are Christians while the Old Testament people were not Christians. All the Christians (the genuinely born again) are anointed with the Holy Spirit by God –2 Corinthians 1:21 KJV “Now he (God) which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God.”
And therefore, your General Overseer/pastor is not a school master to you (master-servant relationship in Christianity because of the false teaching of the word “anointed” for the “man of God” alone in the New Testament) for the faulty reason that he told you that he is anointed man of God in contradictory to the scripture – Galatians 3:25 -26 KJV “But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
