HOW PROSPERITY GOSPEL PASTORS TWIST BIBLE TO MAKE MONEY FROM PEOPLE – Jeremiah 4:3 and Hosea 10:12 (PART 8)
Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and Hosea 10:12 KJV
Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and Hosea 10:12 KJV “For thus saith the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns…Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”
Let me ask a critical thinking question: Please can someone who read these scriptures with understanding through the help of the Holy Spirit tell me where and how Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and Hosea 10:12 KJV mention or mean money?
Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and Hosea 10:12 KJV had been twisted and manipulated by the prosperity gospel pastors/pastorpreneurs to mean money – and they have used the scriptures (Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and Hosea 10:12 KJV) to make a lot of money from the gullible and deceived members of the church!!!
When you read between the lines Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and Hosea 10:12 KJV for proper and deep understanding of these Scriptures, you will have a revelation knowledge and see that these scriptures are not talking about money at all.
Scriptures interpret Scriptures:
Let us use Matthew 13:7 KJV to interpret Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and .Hosea 10:12 KJV. In Matthew 13:7 KJV “And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them”; the Lord Jesus Christ spoke about the Parable of the Sower. He said that the seed is the “word of God,” – Luke 8:11 KJV “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God..”
With this scriptural understanding, what the prophet Jeremiah and prophet Hosea were talking about is the word of God (it is not money) and fallow ground is the heart.
Therefore the word of God is to be sown in the human heart in righteousness and the sown seed (the word) is to take root in the heart while the thorns are the “cares of this world,” the selfish desires (like covetousness, obsession for materialism and money, primarily seeking the good things of life first and making righteousness secondary) which choke the good seed (the word of God) and render it unfruitful, that is, not to make the word of God prosper in the life of the person (the hearer).
“Break up your fallow ground” is a metaphorical language which means purge, sanctify and purify the field of your heart, by godly sorrow for your sins (any acts of disobedience), and hatred to them (the sins); prepare your hearts for receiving the seed of the divine word of God, by making them soft, tender, receivable and pliable, fit and ready to believe and obey as a practicing true Christian.
“And sow not among thorns”: The meaning of this is to put a permanent end to the evil tendencies like the lusts and vices, the love of money, the idolatry, the corrupt practices in principles and dispositions, ungodly habits, and unchristian practices, which, unless rooted out, will effectually choke and destroy the good seed of truth (the word of God) and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and prevent the healthy growth of piety and virtue in Christian life.
It is unfortunate that the prosperity gospel pastors / preachers have twisted, turned and manipulated these Scriptures ( Jeremiah 4:3 KJV and Hosea 10:12 KJV ) into hot money-making scriptures to sow money seed (seed faith) in their ministries and denominational churches.
PROPAGATION OF MANIPULATION, MISINTERPRETATION, MISAPPLICATION AND ABUSE OF THE SCRIPTURES THROUGH BRAINWASHING AND MIND PROGRAMMING FOR MONEY
In order to make money through many money-making scriptures, the god of mammon has helped the prosperity gospel preachers/pastorpreneurs to engage in propagation of manipulation, misinterpretation, misapplication and abuse of the scriptures through brainwashing and mind programming of their followers (church members).
They are continued to propagate money-making scriptures. Their calling is uncleanness of the practice of mammon Christianity of money-making in Christendom whereas our calling by the Lord Jesus Christ is unto holiness: 1 Thessalonians 4:7 KJV “For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.”
We are not called into manipulation, misinterpretation, misapplication and abuse of scriptures – we are not called into brainwashing and mind programming for money-making. This is because brainwashing and mind programming with manipulation, misinterpretation, misapplication and abuse of scriptures are all unto unrighteousness.
All forms of unrighteousness are uncleanness.
The Propagation of manipulation, misinterpretation, misapplication and abuse of the scriptures to scam through brainwashing and mind programming must be stopped in the body of Christ in order to have a practice of true Christianity that will eradicate and put an end to unchristian, unbiblical, unscriptural activities in the church.
