The Good Shepherd feeds the sheep but the sheep feed the Wicked shepherd in the church – Jeremiah 5:26 – 31 KJV
JEREMIAH 5:26 – 31 KJV
“For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Shall I (God) not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”
Good shepherd feeds his sheep while the sheep feed the wicked shepherd.
The wicked shepherds are irresponsible.
The wicked shepherds are scammers, manipulators and brainwashers.
The wicked shepherds are money-conscious in all their activities.
The wicked shepherds operate second slavery which is unknown to their captives (the gullible and deceived church members) as they have been brainwashed and manipulated through mind control technique.
The wicked shepherds introduced and practiced SECOND SLAVERY which is MODERN SLAVERY through their unchristian religious activities and unbiblical practices in the church.
The wicked shepherds will be getting richer while the sheep will be getting poorer!
In disguise, the wicked shepherds are slave masters.
They set traps for people (not for animals) by their subtlety to capture – and people in Nigeria use their own legs to walk into this second slavery (modern slavery) by these unchristian, unbiblical, unscriptural religious activities going on in their Churches.
Their traps catch both small and big, poor and rich, female and male, etc to scam: Jeremiah 5:26 – 31 KJV “For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Shall I (God) not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”
The wicked shepherd steal, kill and destroy the bright future, destiny of the sheep, especially the youths unknown to them, their future has been vandalized in the church by these wicked shepherd – their hope has been stolen, killed and destroyed by the wicked shepherd by keeping them in the church through unchristian, unbiblical, unscriptural religious activities.
The destiny of many young brilliant doctors, engineers, bankers, lawyers, professionals are wasting away in Nigerian prosperity gospel churches.
They are kept in the church to be fasting and praying – some of them are made pastors by the General Overseers or senior pastors – their calling is by the General Overseers and their senior pastors (NEVER by God).
The General Overseers or pastors are doing and practicing the opposite of the Bible – they are practicing the opposite of true Christianity. They are not different from Nigerian politicians in their goal. This is because as Nigerian politicians are scamming citizens so is the General Overseers or pastors are cajoling, scamming, swindling, manipulating, brainwashing and defrauding the church members.
These General Overseers or pastors are romancing, dinning and wining with the politicians, collecting fat tithes and offerings, cash donations, sowing of money seed/seed faith etc from them (the politicians). And they will not be able to rebuke and correct them for bad governance or misgovernment that is having adverse effect on people.
They are very perfect in twisting the scriptures that leads to the brainwashing and manipulation of their church members for their own material and financial benefits – they deceive the gullible members (the hearts of the simple) of their church – Romans 16:17-18 KJV “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”
They sheep are feeding them instead of them to be feeding the sheep – they are the wicked shepherds as they twist the scriptures to brainwash and manipulate the sheep to be feeding them; flying in private jets, enjoying the flamboyant, opulent, affluent lifestyle from the money coming from the poor church members – they are getting richer while the church members are getting poorer: 2 Peter 3:16 – 17 KJV “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest (twist), as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.”
Any General Overseers or pastors who are involved in doing all these things are known as wicked shepherds.
The Lord Jesus Christ is a good Shepherd who fed the multitudes ( lamps and sheep ) with five loaves of bread and two fishes but in Nigeria church, the lamps /sheep are feeding the shepherd (the General Overseer /Pastor ): Matthew 14:19 (KJV) “And he (Jesus Christ) commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he (Jesus Christ) blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.”
In Nigerian church, the sheep are the ones taking care of the shepherd instead of the shepherd to take care of the sheep as the Lord Jesus Christ commanded in the Bible! John 21:15-17 (KJV) “So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”
DIVINE JUDGMENT FOR THE WICKED SHEPHERDS
Why did God say the judgment will start in His house (in the church)? It is because God knows that they are wicked people like wicked shepherds among His people (among the Christians) in Christianity – 1 Peter 4:17 KJV “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us…”
Therefore, God is going to visit with judgment the wicked shepherds among His people – Jeremiah 5:26 KJV “For among my people are found wicked men…”
Unless they repent, ask for forgiveness and forsake their wickedness, the wicked shepherds will be driven away by their own wickedness and the wickedness of the wicked will surely be upon them for divine judgment: Proverbs 14:32 KJV and Ezekiel 18:20 KJV “The wicked is driven away in his wickedness…and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”
Even before divine visitation of God with judgment upon them, God first cursed them and then after the curse, what follows is divine judgment by God: Ezekiel 34:2 KJV and the same Ezekiel 34:7 – 10 KJV “Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; As I (God) live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I (God) am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.”
