WHAT DO DEVIL POSSESSED FUNDAMENTAL
BAPTIST PREACHERS TEACH?

By Steve Van Nattan

It is very clear today that many Fundamental Baptist preachers are teaching doctrines of devils. They punish and pummel the Lord's sheep mercilessly, and it is time to expose them.



Just before the Lord returns for his Church, we are told there will be "a great falling away."

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

This falling away will not be by Episcopalians and Methodists. They were well fallen many years ago. The falling away will be by those in what used to be Bible believing churches.

And, these falling churches will be lead by falling pastors. Wolves shall enter in among the sheep, take over pulpits, and they shall lead gullible saints into a profane and degraded form of Christianity.

Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

In this article I use the King James Bible word "devils" when referring to an evil spirit taking over the life and work of a pastor. But, in the thinking of people today the word "devils" is often used. They are one and the same in meaning. So, if you think of this issue in terms of "devils," my use of the Bible word "devils" means the same thing.

 

HOW DO DEVILS BEHAVE?

When we suspect devils, or devils, have invaded a church or its pastor, what qualities of behavior are we looking for?

Answer: The characteristics found in devils according to the Word of God.

 

1. devils believe there is one God.

James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

The fact that a pastor believes there is a God, the God of the Bible, proves nothing. When Donald Trump was campaigning for President of the USA he told interviewers, "I am very religious." He then went on to associate himself with a passel of "Christian" leaders, and millions of Bible believing Christians decided Trump was God's great gift to America. Bah. President Trump's marriage doctrine is NOT Christian, and his instructions on how to grab the ladies is extremely vulgar. Also, he exalts sodomy and has appointed sodomites to positions.

But, how about Christian leaders? Do their lives match their alleged relationship with Jesus Christ? There are a lot of preachers waving a King James Bible, and shouting and claiming to love Jesus Christ, who are as certain to be in Hell as Adolph Hitler is. And, Jesus warned us that it would be so:

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

When you come to the end of this article, and if you see clear signs that your pastor is possessed of devils, will you take action, or will you leave your wife and kids in that place to become twice the children of Hell he is?

 

2. devils are proud and self-willed

The way to see this is in Satan himself. His name before he fell from Heaven through sin was Lucifer. Isaiah the prophet was given a vision of Lucifer and the day in eternity past when he made his self-seeking choices:

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

When a Christian leader shows serious indications of pride and self-exaltation, boasting of his accomplishments, or even the accomplishments of his local church, he is being inspired by devils. Pride is driving his mouth and mind. The clear proof of this is that his instincts are all wrong. Who gets all the glory for the building of the Church?

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Jude 1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

When preachers boast of their own accomplishments, even when they flatter the members of the local church, a devil is talking.

Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

 

2. devils are fallen from a better life.

Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

The destiny of devils results from their fall. They fell from Heaven with Satan, and they will finish their fall when they are sent to the Lake of Fire.

A Christian leader who is possessed of devils will show indications that he is fallen. His first love of the Gospel will not be the same as when he first started preaching. He will not show the same zeal for the saints which he once had. He will not have the same personal ethics he once had. His zeal for prayer will have been replaced with other things.

When you realize your pastor is falling, find another church at once.

 

3. devils are unclean.

Matthew 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

A Christian leader who is possessed of devils will develop a greater tolerance for dirt in general. The church house may become tacky, and his home, automobile, and his personal appearance will take on a shabby and cluttered look. Sin is dirty, and devils specialize is dirt. Witness the "holy man" of India in the photo.

In "contemporary" churches, watch for the pastor to come up with tattoos and bling bling. Devils cause the natives in heathen lands to mark and scar their bodies. I grew up in Africa where many people have scars and signs of mutilation of their bodies. The Church in Africa absolutely forbade this practice in born again Africans. This is always of devils. God forbade this in the Law of Moses.

Leviticus 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

It is inconceivable to imagine that God changed his mind about body marking and mutilation just because we are now under Grace instead of under Law. God created Adam without any tattoos of bling bling in his nose or ears.

When your pastor, or his kids, turn up with unclean manifestations, a devil is in them helping them justify their new standards.

 

4. devils are violent.

Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

I saw this in Africa when I was growing up there. Devils love to turn people violent. And, there is both physical violence and mental violence. When a pastor talks arrogantly about doing violence, even in self-defense, his mind is violent, and he is under Satanic influence. He will teach your kids to become violent. A pastor who is obsessed with the Second Amendment of the US Constitution is a violent man. This is not to say that defending yourself or family is evil, but when a Bible believer makes a cause of the Second Amendment, he is working for the devil.

But, it gets much worse than that. Many pastors these days are violent to the sheep. They work men to distraction around the church house, they demand giving which causes poverty of some saints, and they rejoice in excommunicating members for childish reasons. Then, these pastors go to pastor's rallies, and they stand in the foyer and tell war stories about how they "churched" (excommunicated) alleged trouble makers.

A pastor who develops the persona of being the tough guy in the local church is a beast. Evangelist Phil Kidd is famous for his look of an inner city thug. This is Satanic. Can you imagine Jesus walking around Galilee looking at people like this man in the photo?

PHILL KIDD PREACHING SAMPLE

HERE IS A LYING VIOLENT SON OF SATAN AT WORK

PREACHER PRAYS A SINNER WILL DIE AND GO TO HELL

Chapter and verse please, that is, that we are to pray that anyone dies and goes to Hell. God totally disagrees with Steven Anderson.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Pastor Anderson is NOT WILLING that transvestites get saved. This means that Anderson is at war with the Word of God, and thus, he is devil possessed.

There is also the violence of sexually abusing little boys and young woman. This is only one thing- devil possession. When are we going to start calling things what they are?

 

5. devils teach doctrinal error.

1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Any time a Christian leader or pastor teaches a doctrine with a new and startling twist, he is venturing into doctrines of devils. Devilish pastors will teach some totally unique interpretation of some Bible text, a teaching which exists nowhere else. This is so that they have a personally patented teaching that you can get only from them. There are well known Bible teachers around the world who do this, and we must call it what it is-- doctrine of devils. There is NO interpretation, in 2017, of some Bible text which the Holy Ghost just delivered to your pastor. The Holy Ghost would not wait over two thousands years to hand out the truth on any Bible text.

The most grievous example of this in Fundamental Baptist circles is with "Baptist Standards." These standards are meant, by Satan, to replace the convicting work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. They are devilish, and the pastor who promotes them is getting help from devils. If this persists, it must be assumed that the pastor is not born again and is an agent provocateur for Satan.

This is not to say that a Bible believer has no standards. But, the whole of the New Testament is full of teaching given by the Holy Spirit to be taught by pastors. Once a pastor correctly teaches these lessons, the Holy Spirit goes to work in your heart and mind and convinces you of something in your life that is sin and needs to be abandoned. God wants YOU to set the standards, not the pastor.

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Your pastor is not called of God to depart from iniquity for you. God wants YOU to do that. When your pastor tells you it is his job to clean up your life, he is being tutored by Satan, not the Holy Spirit.

A young married brother in a church I pastored told me one day, "Pastor, please pray for me. I am addicted to soda pop, and I want to be delivered from the addiction." My first thought was, "That does not seem like such a big thing." But, the Lord convicted me to take the brother seriously. If he thought he was in a sin of addiction, I don't care if it seems innocent, THAT BROTHER us under conviction, and I need to help him win his battle. The brother won the battle, and the victory was his because he did the right thing for Christ's sake, not for me.

Another ongoing curse in the Lord's Church is the man who teaches prophetic biblical texts with a devilish twist. No example is worse than the myth that God allowed fallen angels to develop penises when they fell from Heaven to earth. This doctrine of penisology is taught to then claim that the Nephalim in the Old Testament were half human and half devil giants. If your pastor is teaching this doctrine, he is getting his inspiration from Satan. There are no penises in Heaven.

In answering the Sadducees' tricky question about a woman who had seven husband, and whose wife would she be in Heaven, Jesus said,

Mark 12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

If your pastor can give devils penises, can he give one to Michael the Archangel? This is a fair question, and it illustrates the wickedness of taking your doctrine from a devil possessed pastor.

 

WE HAVE ARRIVED-- JESUS CHRIST HAS PUKED.

Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Are you part of Christ's vomit? If your pastor shows most or all of the following signs of devil possession, YOU ARE THE PUKE OF GOD. You better decide if that is where you want Christ to find you when he returns for his people.

Here are the tell tale signs that a pastor of a Fundamental Baptist Church is devil possessed. And, of course, this applies to other church groups, such as Charismatic, Pentecostal, and Reformed churches which have otherwise had a reputation of being biblically sound.

1. Pastoral Rule

The pastor will insist that he must rule the church as the only human authority. He will even say such things as, "You follow me, and I will follow Jesus." Or, "There is only one man standing between your family and Hell..... your pastor." (Sam Gipp)

This heresy is based on a deadly infectious disease among Baptist pastors..... Narcissisium Ecclesiasticum.

Young men go off the a Christian College. They are taught there that being a pastor is the highest order of life on the planet. They are also introduced to preachers who are flattered and exalted by their teachers. These famous pastors are held up as examples to follow above the Lord Jesus Christ. Witness the cult of Jack Hylesism. Long after his death the disease still lingers.

Once the young man is called by a local church, he is totally convinced that the sun rises every day, circles three times around his shoulders, and sets. And, that is a perfect day in Baptist Land. Because of this warped view of the godhood of the pastor of the local church, this man will never be a servant to the Lord's Church, as the Apostle Paul taught and practiced himself. This pastor will spend a lot of time making sure the sheep exalt him, and most of you out there will do just that. Most members of Baptist churches fall in wonder before their preacher boy, and when he abuses them, they thank him for it.

VIDEO: CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF A BAPTIST JERK PREACHER ABUSING THE SHEEP

Watch how he tells a Mom he is the boss of her son. We talk about this later. What disturbs me is the way these people accept this as normal Christian truth in progress.

This doctrine of the Baptist pastor being the ruler of Christ's Church is not taught in the New Testament. Jesus himself made it very clear whom you are to follow:

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Any man who insists that he come between you and Jesus Christ is a damned to Hell devil. That is a fact, whether it comes from Pope Francis or from your Baptist preacher.

Let us review the Bible on who is Head of the Church:

Ephesians 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

This means that Jesus Christ is the Head of your Sunday School. He is the Head of your bus program. He is the Head of your music production. He is the Head of your church government. And, Jesus Christ is the Head of your local church, bar none. Your pastor, in claming to be ruler of your church, is a blasphemer of THE Head, Jesus Christ. He is usurping the position God gave Christ, "head over all things to the church."

There is one text in the New Testament about pastors telling us what they are to do.

Ephesians 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Pastors are to teach, teach, teach..... until the saints are "perfect," which means mature in the Bible. Pastors are to WORK at the ministry, not sit and play on Facebook and Twitter in their office. Pastors are to "edify" the saints, and that, according to the Apostle Paul, means teach DOCTRINE. A born again responsible pastor who does these things will clearly show, in his teaching, that he has been plowing deep. The pastor who yells clichés and repetitious word sets every time he preaches is a bastard son. Hebrews 12:8

The Ephesians pastor will NOT be telling you he is head of anything regarding the Church of Jesus Christ. He will not be claiming the position of ruler of anything. There is one ruler of the Church, and that is Jesus Christ. If your pastor claims the right to rule the church, he is possessed of a devil and getting his doctrine from Satan.

Tyrannical pastors will cite the following verse:

Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

In as much as the pastor is fulfilling his duty as a Bible teacher, and in as much as he is one of the elders of the local church, he needs to be obeyed. But, when this call for obedience clearly intrudes on the headship of Jesus Christ over the believers, such a pastor must be rejected outright.

The problem in nearly all Baptist churches is that they reject the plurality of elders. Paul appointed "elders" (plural) when he left a church he had planted and moved on. He told Titus to appoint "elders" (plural) in the church he pastored. Timothy was told by Paul to give honor to the "elders" in the local church. When a church has only deacons, not elders, and only one pastor, that church is being ruled by a tyrant.

The devil's pastor is an alpha male wolf, and he also has an alpha female wolf-- his wife.

The pastor enforces his headship over the church with sarcastic remarks and with direct punishment. He will shun any man who is not trotting in the door every time is is open, and he will be cool to the low givers. This is because he has taken up with the doctrine of Balaam:

Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Here is a brother reviewing the characteristics of a tyrannical pastor who uses "pastoral rule" as a weapon of Satan to destroy Christians. There is a good discussion of recovery after leaving an abusive church:

devilish CHURCHES

 

2. Baptist Standards

Whole sermons are frequently preached on women in pants and what a worldly man looks like.

The pastor brags to other preachers on his church's standards, not on the work of the Holy Spirit to change people. I attended a Baptist pastor's rally in Detroit one day, and during an open sharing time, a pastor got up and stated, "I thank God that pants have never touched my wife's legs." This boasting has the effect of exalting that pastor, and any pastor who was saved later in life may well have been married to a lady who wore pants before she was born again. This is how Satan sends the devil of pride into the heart of a pastor.

The pastor fails to teach you how to determine what is profane and what is holy on your own. He preaches a standards sermon and tells you what to do in this or that situation in life. The Bible tells you something very different will be happening during the Kingdom reign of Messiah Christ. The ministers of Christ then will do this:

Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

A born again pastor teaches his people to make judgments of what is profane or holy, what is clean of unclean, with their own zeal without an official "standard" being given out as an edict. Where a local church is ruled by "Baptist Standards," no Christian will ever rise higher than the pastor's standards. If the pastor is a adulterer, you will soon be one too. From personal reports, I have to assume that First Baptist of Hammond, Indiana is reeking with adultery after the manner of Jack Hyles and the pastor who followed him, Jack Schapp. Adultery in these pastors will have permeated the whole church like yeast in bread.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROFANE AND THE HOLY HERE

Baptist Standards are not taught to make you holy. They are taught to enslave you to the pastor. He makes the rules, and he enforces them, and he does not give a flip what God thinks about it. You will obey, or you will be shunned and eventually "churched," which means tossed out the door. You have seen other Christians attacked by your pastor, and you will be next if you start doing your own thinking based on the Bible.

 

 

3. Tithing is the main sermon topic

Does your pastor preach on tithing and giving about every third sermon?

There is a reason for this.

Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

2 Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

Balaam agreed to curse the Children of Israel for Balac for a fat bribe. Balaam prophesied for cash. That is what your pastor is doing if he preaches frequently on giving. The New Testament says very little about giving compared to all the other doctrines taught there.

VIDEO: ED YOUNG TEACHES TITHING

Understand this please. Tithing is NOT in the New Testament teachings of the Apostles. There is NO obligation in giving in the New Testament. No preacher you know can preach tithing without going back to Moses' Law, and the Church is not to live under Moses' Law.

Balaam was rebuked by a jack ass in Numbers 22:22-31. Maybe YOU need to be God's jack ass and call out that money grubbing devil possessed pastor of yours. Be near a door when you do it though. You will be summarily excommunicated at once.

You really need to study to see what the Bible really says about giving and tithing. I have a couple of articles on this journal for your edification:

TITHING- A HISTORICAL STUDY By James A Watson Jr.

TITHING AND GIVING AS TAUGHT IN THE BIBLE

Now, leave that son of Satan and his money grubbing sermons, and go yonder to a Baptist church where the whole Bible is taught, and begging for cash is not the main event.

 

4. Shunning and haunting

Before there was such a thing as a Baptist Church, during the 1500s the Anabaptists had separated from the Reformed churches of Luther and Calvin and were preaching a simple biblical Gospel. They also required their converts to be rebaptized because the Reformed churches were accepting the baptism of their converts when they were Catholics. This is clearly correct of the Anabaptists because baptism is always AFTER confession of faith in Jesus Christ.

The Anabaptists did many things right, and they taught the Bible literally. But, they started adding rules. Clothing had to be plain and simple, and new methods of work and farming were condemned. This is true of many Anabaptists, such as some Mennonites and all Amish, until today. Well before the 1500s had passed, the Anabaptists had started teaching "Shunning." This was a requirement of their members to shun and totally ostracize anyone who left their churches or was excommunicated. This shunning was vicious, and it is still practiced today. There are Hutterites in Canada who shun one another because one group's ladies have red polka dots on their head scarves, while the other Hutterites have green polka dots.

Shunning is cruel, in that, it forces Christians to treat other Christians far worse then they treat the lost in the world. The shunned person is cut off from family and friends completely, and those who refuse to shun these victims are themselves put on the shun list.

Fundamental Baptists practice this devilish shunning teaching. Pastors will identify some church member who is not attending, or who has moved to another church, and he will tell his members to shun them at all times. Do not even greet them in the market place.

Now, if the issue were sound doctrine, we might agree with shunning.

Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 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.

Verse 17 clearly teaches that there is a time to shun people, but it is only for false doctrine. The fact that a member moves his membership to another church is not false doctrine. Rarely is shunning, as practiced by Baptists, because of false doctrine.

Verse 18 implies that Paul is mostly talking about preachers or teachers in the local church.

But, when some member is lax in attendance, or when some lady is seen in slacks during the week, this is not a doctrinal issue. The preacher will claim is it, but the truth is, it is all about Baptist Standards. This person has defied the pastor's rule book for daily living, and she must be shunned. I have heard of Baptist Christians being shunned for the smallest details of life, or even for not being dedicated enough to the pastor. When some pastors are approached, alone and by a humble man, about some teaching point, the end result is often that the seeker is "churched," which means excommunicated, and he is then shunned by the whole church. All this for asking a question about the Sunday sermon.

Preachers who rule the local church by the threat of shunning are possessed of devils. You, sir, have NO business keeping your family in that church. It has been my observation, from personal experience and from hundreds of pathetic stories in email, that preachers who rule by shunning are either carrying on an affair with a woman in the church, or these preachers are sodomites. When you see a church with a long shunning list, that church is a habitation of devils.

The latest and most ugly innovation on shunning, which came up in the life of a reader of this journal, I will call haunting. Some pastors, and their men, will actually follow the shunned person to intimidate them. This is done to terrify the victim so that they stop trying to make contact with former church member friends or family. One pastor and his youth director followed a lady home at night with their car lights turned off. One man who had exposed a pastor's teaching errors was visited by the pastor and a ex-Marine thug. We are getting to the point where Baptists may soon need a permit to carry to protect themselves from former pastors.

I cannot be strong enough about this. When someone you know is born again, and who you love in Christ, is shunned and even followed and shadowed after being excommunicated from a church, do whatever you have to do to intimidate that pastor and force him to back off. It may come down to that pastor needing to be slapped around somewhat to convince him. Many Fundamental Baptist preachers have a violent temper, and they assume that no one in the community will touch a pastor, even if he is being cruel and vicious. It is time to teach such a pastor with thorns.

Judges 8:13 And Gideon the son of Joash returned from battle before the sun was up,
14 And caught a young man of the men of Succoth, and enquired of him: and he described unto him the princes of Succoth, and the elders thereof, even threescore and seventeen men.
15 And he came unto the men of Succoth, and said, Behold Zebah and Zalmunna, with whom ye did upbraid me, saying, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in thine hand, that we should give bread unto thy men that are weary?
16 And he took the elders of the city, and thorns of the wilderness and briers, and with them he taught the men of Succoth.

You, you bastard son of Satan, who destroys families and offend the saints with your devilish cult of shunning hate, I have a word for you:

Jude 1:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

I sincerely pray to God that this article will destroy certain wretched devil possessed pastors among us.

 

5. You can lose your salvation during an altar call

"If you are not here every time the doors are open, why should I believe you are born again?"

"If you never come forward during an altar call, are you even born again?"

These preachers claim to believe that "once saved, always saved." But, during their altar calls they do anything possible to cause born again people to question their salvation. These hick burp preachers are desperate to see the altar full of people. This gives them the self-satisfaction that they are really moving the people and the church is "getting right."

The reason for this is evident..... These preachers do not really believe the Holy Spirit of God is the only one who does the convincing, as Jesus said he was for the Church Age:

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

The Comforter is the Holy Spirit. It is not the preacher's job to convince men of sin. It is not his job to bring on the results of preaching and teaching. I believe that 95% or all Fundamental Baptist preachers simply do NOT believe the Holy Spirit has the power to convince sinners of their sin and need for salvation. I suspect YOU do not believe that the one preaching or witnessing should let the Holy Spirit convince sinners. This is a heresy in the Church today. This practical doctrine is why thousands of preachers give long knock down dragged out altar calls.

This practice also is based on the premise that you are too stupid to understand the message and the Word of God. The pastor believes that he has to massage your mind with tricks and threats, or you will not catch on. This is not only an insult to God the Holy Spirit- It is an insult to YOU. Your conscience is working just fine. You caught the meaning of the Word of God and the message, and you have already decided you need to take care of something in your life. But, the preacher is absolutely convinced you are too stupid to reach this point on your own. You need to "go forward" and weep and wail at the altar before he believes you got it.

Jesus was walking through town. He never said a word, and he was not even preaching. Jesus simply invited himself to dinner with a fellow sitting in a tree nearby:

Luke 19:2 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.
4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.
6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
7 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
8 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

The Bible says nothing about Jesus teaching. Jesus did not give an invitation to Zacchaeus to repent, come forward, and weep white hot tears on a special piece of carpet yonder. Zacchaeus voluntarily made his confession or repentance, and Christ blessed him.

Having said all this, perhaps your pastor is not like this. Do you ever go to him alone and tell him some life change you decided to make after he preached a sermon the Holy Spirit used to talk to you? That is a good preacher you have, and he does need to hear that there is fruit from his zeal to teach. My most priceless memories as a pastor have been when some saint told me, maybe weeks later, that they changed something in their life because they were convicted by a sermon I preached. That is pure gold to a real servant of God.

HERE IS MY ARTICLE ON ALTAR CALLS

 

6. Some saints are more special to God than others

This is determined by perfect attendance, double tithing, coming out for visitation, and enslavement to the pastor. I have email on file of a man whose wife had been virtually held hostage by the pastor. She was the church secretary, and she taught classes and did many other tasks to pamper the pastor. The man simply had no personal time with his wife because she was exhausted. This pastor was possessed of devils. How could a man of rational character do this without being driven to it by Satan himself?

Groveling before the mighty pastor is NOT what Jesus had in mind for pastors to be doing in his Church.

Seldom is a saint blessed by the pastor for witnessing on his own. Devil possessed pastors demand that their men appear every Thursday evening like robots to do "door to door visitation." This process produces nothing. I have tried it with various twists and methods of approach and presentation. Most people are polite because the man standing at the door is a local preacher, but they have NO interest in the Gospel or going to church. They also feel obligated to convince the preacher that they are very religious. This results in nothing but mockery of the victims later by the pastor.

If you are a man and fail to turn up to go on visitation, the pastor will mock your zeal for Christ, and often in front of other men in the church. He will let you know in sermons that, "I have no reason to believe you are born again." Again, your personal confession of faith in Christ is attacked if you do not jump when the preacher jerks your leash.

So, if you are faithful to come out for visitation you will be praised openly from the pulpit and used as an example of a faithful servant of Jesus Christ. You, sir, are a blasted brat if you inhale the incense of this wicked flattery. You are not to serve Christ so that you can receive the praise of men and be exalted before other members. You are nothing but a sniveling brown nose to the pastor.

A devil inspired pastor will teach that witnessing is to be done by bringing unsaved visitors to church. You are not to invite them to consider Jesus Christ as the Savior. You are not to use your home and work place to persuade men that Christ will forgive their sins and give them eternal life. You are to convince them to come to church with you. The only soul winner in most Fundamental Baptist churches is the pastor, and the place to "get saved" is on the ten by twenty floor section of carpet in front of the pulpit. The pastor wants it this way so that he gets the credit for all the souls allegedly saved in his church. This sort of pastor is a spiritual criminal and serving Satan well.

Almost all of these people who walk the aisle to "get saved" never come back again. When you visit them later, they are disgusted with the church and you for doing a con job on them. This has been proven by students enslaved to this system at First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana who were even spit on by victims of Jack Hyles' altar call tricks.

Again, you will be profusely praised by the pastor if you bring herds of suckers to visit you church where the pastor can work his persuasive tricks on them to get them down the aisle. You will be lifted up with Satanic flattery by the pastor from the pulpit regularly. Some of you idiots love this and imagine you are doing God a great service. You are in reality the slave of a pastor driven by devils. Your pastor is using you to help him carve notches on his gun.

Elihu, the only godly friend Job had, spoke about the flattery you crave from your pastor for being his little porch monkey:

Job 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man.
22 For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.

Solomon said, Proverbs 26:28 A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

Proverbs 29:5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.

Your pastor is digging a pit for you to fall into and make a fool of yourself before God and man when he flatters you before the congregation. Unknown to you, some of the more godly men in your church see right through this and have no respect for your self-righteous folly.

Furthermore, The Antichrist, the impersonation of Satan himself during the Great Tribulation, will take in his followers by flattering them:

Daniel 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

Flattery is one of Satan's most powerful tools. He used it on Eve by flattering her and telling her she could become a goddess by disobeying God. You need to reject the flattery of your pastor, stop being his slave boy, and leave that church to find fellowship where the pastor is a truly godly man. Also, find a church where the pastor rejoices when souls are saved between Sundays as a result of witnessing members.

 

7. The devil's church is measured by its numerical growth, bus program, and offerings.

This is the impression I get from listening to preachers when they have their gatherings. They stand around the foyer of the meeting place and brag on their numbers and accomplishments, not on Jesus Christ. For years, men like Lee Roberson have been called on to speak at preacher's conferences to tell how to get the numbers up and grow a church from 75 members to 5000 in three hours and forty five minutes. If your pastor thrives on numbers and demands that you help him get the count up, your preacher is being inspired by devils.

David numbered the people of Israel, and God punished him severely by causing 70,000 men of Israel to die of a plague. A pastor who is obsessed with numbers, but is never chastened by God, is not being chastened because he is not born again and belongs to God. God will not tolerate this numbers racket from any man of God.

Missions giving is also a superstitious talisman to many preachers. A pastor will have a deep lust for huge offerings. This is always because he is full of greed and wants the church to pamper him with wealth. To try to cover up for his own greed, a pastor like this will promote missions giving and boast of how much the church gives to missions. The sanctuary will be surrounded by fifty flags from nations around he world, photos of missionaries they support, and prayer letters posted regularly from the missionaries. But, the church will give each of these missionaries a measly $35 a month, as if the church is inhabited by big givers. There may also be a huge map in the foyer with little red lights for each missionary.

Johnny the Baptist, an evangelist friend of mine, told of arriving at one of these churches, and there was the huge map with loads of missionaries around the margin and the little red lights. Johnny realized one of the missionaries had died two years before, and he took the pastor aside and cautioned him about this. Johnny thought the pastor was unaware that the missionary was dead. The pastor became enraged and at once canceled Johnny's meeting that evening. The pastor was clearly pocketing the money being given to that missionary. Johnny told me he had seen this trick more than once.

When your pastor brags constantly about the giving in your church, he is possessed by a devil of greed. He is flattering you and the members by making you believe you are doing God a big favor by digging deep into your finances to fund the preacher's spending programs.

What is the measure of a sound Bible believing local church? Jesus found one such church here:

Revelation 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

The church at Smyrna was a poor church, but they were rich in that they stayed faithful to Christ when they suffered.

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Twice Christ commends the Philadelphian church for keeping his Word. I church that is cruelly prospering is doing so in the teaching and preaching of the Word of God, not in its offering plate.

The Apostle Paul had harsh words for preachers who lust for riches, especially by fleecing the Lord's sheep.

1 Timothy 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

That last word, "meekness," is the quality least found in greedy preachers who preach on giving every other Sunday. They are full of themselves, and their bombast, bluster, and bull is repulsive and overbearing. When a church is saturated with money greed, especially from the pulpit, it is time for YOU to move on down the road.

 

8. Heresy: Women are to be subject to the pastor first, and then to their husbands

If your pastor teaches that every member, including your wife and kids, are under his authority first, he is possessed of devils. He also is hustling your wife, sir. And, in some Fundamental Baptist churches this sort of pastor is hustling your daughter. We saw a very raw example of that with Doug Philips of the Patriarchy Movement and by Jack Schaap at First Baptist of Hammond, Indiana.

This filthy doctrine of devils comes from a pastor who also teaches pastoral rule of the local church. He wants this control of the wives of the husbands for a reason. There is NO innocent motive going on here.

The head of every family is the father.

Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

The pastor is NOT the head of your wife. Nor is the pastor the head of the Church. You are the head of your wife, and by implication, of your whole family. Throughout the whole Bible we see examples of fathers taking the headship of their homes, as with Abraham, Joseph, David, and Peter. It was when the first man, Adam, let his wife lead that sin entered the Garden of Eden. If you let a devil of a preacher at your wife, sir, you are wicked. She is to submit to no man other than you.

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

There is absolutely NOTHING obscure about that teaching. Any Baptist preacher who claims he has the spot between the husband and his wife is a blasphemer. When a pastor approaches any man's wife about anything the least bit sensitive, including asking her to do some task for the local church, that wife has NO business paying any attention to that pastor. She must at once report the pastor to her husband. The husband must go to the pastor and rebuke him. If the pastor goes off in anger or accusation, that husband must at once take his family out of all contact with that pastor and find another local church to attend. No exceptions. If the pastor makes a nuisance of himself, take out a restraining order against him.

 

9. Certain Christian colleges are exalted

Is you pastor a front man for Crown College, Tennessee Temple, or Pensacola Christian College? Or, is he pushing some other school? This means your pastor is captive to the ideology of that school. I say "ideology" because this is not about doctrine. This is your pastor promoting a school because he exalts institutions above Christ himself. I do not care it the school is a good one. The practice of promoting schools from the local church is wicked. It belittles anyone who went to another school, and it devilizes someone who went to a really wretched school and repented of it. One of the most wretched cases of this is Bob Jones University. Only the people who went to Bob Jones University are right with God.

Jude 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

Your pastor, in exalting some school, and the leaders of the school, is flattering them to you so that the school will keep your pastor on their "Approved List of Pastors." That way, when he is done using your church to pad his resume, he can check in with the President of the college, and the President will reward his promotion of the school by helping your pastor find a bigger church.

That is why your pastor invites that Christian college to send their singing group to your church every year. This adds points to his score card back in the school President's office.

The last time I agreed to have a Christian college group sing in a church I pastored, one of the young man and a young lady in the group were openly flirting with each other to excess. Our church people saw it and asked me what was going on. I called the college and reported it, and I vowed to never have another college group perform in a church I pastored.

 

10. Patriotism is preached, including the Divine Inspiration of the US Constitution

I am writing this right after President Donald Trump was inaugurated. I have learned that all over America pastors are claiming that God will use President Trump to being revival, great blessing, and what amounts to a "New Age" of the Church to America.

Is your pastor waving the American flag in the pulpit? Is he telling you that President Donald Trump is, "God's man for America"? John Newton, long ago, rebuked ministers in England for preaching patriotism along with the Bible.

VIDEO OF JOHN NEWTON'S REBUKE OF POLITICAL PREACHERS.

Patriotism is profane in the true meaning of the word. In the Bible, everything which is not holy is profane. The word "profane" in the King James Bible speaks of "common". This means that some profane things are of this world but are not sinful or intrinsically evil, like apples, and like patriotism. Other profane things are wicked, like porn and pimps.

The Bible speaks of this in regard to the time of the Kingdom reign of Messiah Jesus Christ.

Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

Patriotism is clearly common, for it is not holy. Patriotism is a mongrel retreat where filthy minded and adulterous pastors hide behind a popular theme. They no longer have the power of the Holy Spirit in their preaching, so they give the masses a rush by wrapping the Bible in the American flag.

MY ARTICLE IN THIS JOURNAL ON PATRIOTISM

IS AMERICA A CHRISTIAN NATION?

MY ARTICLE ON THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PROFANE AND THE HOLY

As to the US Constitution, its only noble principal is that it was written in such a vague manner that it can still be massaged around to fit the needs of our day after over two hundred years. That, according to historians, is a well written document. The Amendments are very specific and actually do guard certain rights. But, the US Constitution is NOT written in the model of the Word of God, nor did God inspire it. The last inspired writing was the last chapter of the book of The Revelation in the Bible. God clearly chose to cut off inspired writing here:

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

If the US Constitution is inspired, then God lied. The above verses make it very clear that he had no intention of giving any man inspiration from that day forward. It is doctrine of devils to teach anything, written or spoken after the above verses were given, is inspired of God.

For you preachers whose devil now causes you to rage at me, I have an assignment for you. Please tell me, in under 1000 words, how you would explain to the Apostle Paul the difference between the three following patriotic events.

Two of these patriotic events were in the public square, and one was in church. Not even in the days of Israel did God call for the military to put on a show in the temple or the tabernacle. Why has your preacher brought patriotism to your church?

For the record, the Russian parade was the 2015 Victory Parade celebrating the deaths of 27 million Russian soldiers who died fighting the Germans in WW II. SEE THE WHOLE PARADE Also, here is the MOST EMOTIONAL FIRST VICTORY PARADE 1945 If emotion is the measure of patriotism, this parade tops them all. Nearly every soul in Red Square had lost a good friend or relative in that war. In fact, emotion is the most deadly aspect in patriotism. Feelings are leading, while the mind follows, which is upside down.

Romans 10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God , but not according to knowledge .

 

11. All other Fundamental Baptist churches in the area are suspect and should not be attended

I knew a pastor who was a personal friend of another pastor across town. They even had one another speak in their pulpits as guests. But, if someone in the church mentioned that they wanted to visit the other preacher's church, this pastor would find some clever way to cast dispersion on the church of his friend. This was done to keep his members from going to have fellowship with other Christians.

Why is this? Most Fundamental Baptist preachers are totally possessive of their members. They will tell any story that will work to keep their people from visiting another church. The irony is, the Apostle Paul encouraged the saints to have fellowship with one another.

Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

The mystery of the Gospel is SUPPOSED TO create fellowship among believers.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

The Apostle John was not in any way limiting Christian fellowship to one local church. The very instinct of a Bible believer is to seek, find, and rejoice in fellowship with other Christians. And, your local church is not the only place to find that fellowship.

So, a preacher who discourages you from visiting another local church because you like more fellowship is practicing a doctrine of devils. God wants you to find more fellowship. And, you are owned by he who bought you with his precious blood, Jesus Christ. Your pastor should rejoice when you find new Christian friends. What your devil pastor is afraid of is that you will find some real Spirit lead Bible teaching and want to leave for the real thing.

My friend Jay Crosby was a wrestling promoter before he got saved. He said the slogan in professional wrestling was, "Nickels and noses and a butt every eighteen inches." A possessive pastor is on the same save length.

 

12. Wednesday night is given over to children's clubs, while adults have "Bible study"

During the Wednesday evening service, prayer is perfunctory and impersonal, indeed, prayer may be totally missing. The concept of a "prayer meeting" is gone from most Baptist churches. Some pastors hand out a list of prayer requests, orally or on a sheet of paper, but to spend time in real prayer is no longer important to these pastors. This is because Satan has control of those preachers.

Satan knows the power of a Bible believer in prayer, so Satan may actually lead a pastor to teach the Bible so that prayer is eliminated. Bible teaching can be twisted and made of none effect if Satan has control of the pastor. But, Satan has a real problem trying to destroy "effectual fervent prayers" of true believers.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

You will be tempted to believe that the program the church has for your children on Wednesday evening justifies the lack of prayer. This is another lie of Satan. Your kids are being shown that playing, hand clapping, and Christian entertainment are better than prayer, so they will become as muddled as you are as to the nature of true Christian zeal.

You need to find a local church where prayer is a serious part of church life. This means that there will be prayer on Wednesday evening, but it also means that there is a prayer chain of some sort so that urgent issues of the members can be passed around BETWEEN SUNDAYS so that people are in prayer for one another daily.

 

13. Worship does not exist on Sunday morning

Singing is fast, and much shouting comes off like a football game. In the most Satanic Fundamental Baptist churches, hymn books are thrown across the room during singing, and men ""run the bases and take off their coats and fling them around. Congregational singing is very limited, and often the platform activities are the main event. Offerings are long and often two or even three offerings are taken. The pastor sits on the platform presiding over every minute of alleged worship.

There is no time for "worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness." The pianist and organist are often sex pots who dress in tight clothes. There is NEVER a point during the service when the people are encouraged to spontaneously praise the Lord and give prayer requests. The Holy Ghost is basically blocked from leading.

Another sign of devils at work in your church is if you pastor is a clown and behaves like a jerk during church services and while preaching. I hear of "running the bases" where people, or the pastor himself, will take off running, and go round and round the room yelling like an idiot. I hear of people in the congregation throwing hymn books across the room. What is this goon show? How is the Holy Spirit at work in this folly? And, if it is not the Holy Spirit, then is it not of devils? Can you imagine Jesus at the temple throwing scrolls around the room? Can you mentally see Jesus, with Peter on his back, running around and around the temple? If you can, YOU are devil possessed.

HERE IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT

 

14. Devil possessed Fundamental Baptist pastors will usually be King James Bible Only

But, they will not have any idea what the issue is. They may know that the NIV or NASB take away texts from the Bible, but they will not know the history of the King James Bible. They will also mock at those who want to discuss the two Greek Bible heritages of the Bible. This is the real foundation of why the King James is the Word of God. In other words, devil possessed Baptist preachers are lazy and refuse to inform themselves why there is a battle raging in some area of Christian zeal. A man possessed by a devil, will show himself up sooner or later by his self-satisfied utter stupidity on certain matters.

 

15. A devil possessed pastor is a dumb fool

When your preacher says something like, "I'm just a dumb country boy....." you better take his word for it. The man of God is not called to be dumb and satisfied with his dumbness when it comes to the wisdom which is from above. God tells a dumb Christian man how to cure his dumbness:

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Proverbs 3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.

Hang around a dumb preacher long enough, and you will be just as dumb and repulsive as he is to other Bible believers. You need to know that some of us out here, when we listen to you talk, can tell that you have been sitting at the feet of a preacher owned by the devil. And, if we can figure it out, you sure are not going to fool God.

GET OUT OF THAT CHURCH AT ONCE.

Do you now think I am going too far to call some Fundamental Baptist preachers devil possessed? Perhaps you will want to ask yourself if you REALLY agree with God in the following Bible text:

2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Paul was not talking about Buddhist monks, Benny Hinn, or some obvious heretics. Paul was telling the church at Corinth that there would come to them men who behaved just like the Apostles, minister righteousness, and seem to spread light where ever they go. But, they are sent directly from Satan.

Is that YOUR pastor? If so, why are you hanging around?

 

 

WHAT DO CHARISMATIC DEVIL POSSESSED PREACHERS TEACH?

It is urgent, and quite fair, to add a section here on Charismatic devil possessed pastors. If you are Pentecostal, AOG, or in some Charismatic local church, all of the above discussion still applies to you. Many of the devilish aspects found in Fundamental Baptist churches are present in your kind of fellowships. This is simply because Satan uses all his bag of tricks anywhere men will go for them. The following is not meant to devilize the Charismatic Movement out of hand. It is simply a fact that Satan has infiltrated your world the same as any other.

 

1. Name it and Claim it- The Prosperity Gospel

Another way to describe this is, "You Own God," or, "God is your slave."

First, how did God tell us a Christian would prosper?

James 2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7
Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

This doctrine of devils says that God will not bless you financially if you don't put "seed money" into his work. That work, of course, is the pocket of the preacher speaking to you on the subject. Nowhere in the Gospels did Jesus claim that if his followers would give him an offering, God would be obligated to bless them richly.

Micah 3:11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.

And, here is a preacher blaspheming the name of Jesus Christ by exalting the rich and demeaning the poor.

LISTEN TO THE LADY PREACHER MOCK THE POOR

What does God say about mocking the poor?

Proverbs 17:5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

HERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT BEING POOR

And, Jesus Christ said so:

Luke 6:20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

And, Solomon said, under inspiration:

Proverbs 15:17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

Who would want to be poor on purpose?

2 Corinthians 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

When your pastor preaches that God wants you rich in worldly wealth and cash, he is preaching a sermon straight from the Satanic bible from Hell. You are a great fool if you hang around and cover the son of Satan with money.

 

2. Healing and other alleged Faith tricks

The clear proof that a devil is in your pastor is that people he heals are not COMPLETELY healed. Jesus never only partly healed anyone. Check it out. And, he never told people he healed, "You will get better in the morning." When Jesus healed, he finished the job.

The next proof that your pastor is devil possessed is that he will not heal everyone who asks for healing. Jesus did not filter who he would heal the way modern "faith healers" do.

If your pastor will not heal people during the day and the week as he walks around town, like Jesus did, he is devil possessed. Jesus healed people and cast out devils where ever he found them.

Finally, if your pastor will not raise people from the dead, like Jesus did with Lazarus and the widow's son, your pastor is devil possessed. These preachers boldly claim to have the same power Jesus had when he healed people in Galilee. Put up, or shut up, preacher.

And, it is wicked for YOU to defend a pastor who does not heal people the same way Jesus did. Call him what he is..... a devil.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

 

3. Prophecy

When your pastor makes a prophecy, write it down. If it does not come to pass exactly like he gave it, he is possessed of devils. Do not allow him to modify it later. Do not allow him to explain why it did not come to pass. When one of God's prophets in the Bible gave a prophecy, it came to pass in the finest details. If Bible prophets made a false prophecy, they were stoned.

Beware of prophecies given by pastors which are simply a rehash of prophecies which already exist in the Bible. David Wilkerson gave a prophecy long ago for which he is famous. He prophesied the downfall of America morally and other prophecies which were already in the Bible and prophesied by the Apostle Paul. Wilkerson simply added some details, and gullible fools imagine he got something special from God.

Totally reject prophecies about YOU and your future. If they do not come to pass, the prophet will claim you failed to claim your blessings, or he will tell you there is sin in your life preventing God from working. Be especially suspect of prophecies about you doing great things for God. This is meant to flatter you, and the power of suggestion may also push you to make that prophecy come to pass. This is pure psychological manipulation by the alleged prophet.

Are prophecies for the Church Age?

There were a handful of prophecies in the New Testament which had to do with life at that time, but they were ONLY during the period before the Bible was compiled and the Epistles were written to the churches to guide them. Tongues and prophecies were also strictly limited in number and were always accompanied by interpretation. These mass jabbering session in tongues DID NOT EXIST IN THE EARLY CHURCH.

I also have seen Charismatic prophets who gave prophecies but had not interpretation or application of the prophecy. This is wicked. It leaves the church to rummage around in their own imaginations to find a meaning for the prophecy.

Also, tongues speaking and prophecies had a limited time period for their operation in New Testament churches:

1 Corinthians 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

Charismatic leaders mock at Bible believers here. They ask, "Are we then stupid? Have we no knowledge?" Stupid is the man who refuses to see what is being taught here. Tongues, prophecies, and knowledge by special revelation are the subject. Once the Bible was compiled by the Early Church Fathers, soon after the last Apostle died, tongues, prophecies, and special revelation to edify the Church ceased. Church history shows no tongues speaking from around 200 AD to 1900 AD when an old Black preacher in Azuza, California put his head into a butter box, and when he pulled it out he was speaking in tongues.

Any Charismatic leader, preacher, or YOU who claim to be giving the Lord's Church special revelation by speaking in tongues, or by giving prophecies, is possessed of devils. You need deliverance if this is what you are doing. I am not claiming you lost your salvation. What I am telling you is that the power of the tongues you speak in is from a devil sitting on your shoulder, and you need to get rid of that devil at once.

 

4. Self-Exaltation by Mr. Wonderful

It is typical that alleged prophets and faith healers talk a lot about all the people they have healed and all the prophecies they have given. They boast of being 100% accurate in prophecies.

Jesus never exalted himself by boasting to the crowds about all the healings he did, and he especially did not brag about being an amazing prophet. Jesus prophecies either came true on schedule, or they are still in place and will be fulfilled during the Great Tribulation or during Kingdom reign.

Also, do not believe stories about "binding." Many Charismatic preachers and evangelists claim to be able to bind the prince (Satan or a devil) in your city or elsewhere. This is rubbish. Jesus never bound devils in Jerusalem or other cities in Galilee.

One Word of Faith creep claimed he was late for a meeting, and he bound all the stop lights en route. He claimed they all turned green as he came to them so that he never had to stop. Stop lights are timed to sequence for many blocks, so that, if you drive along at the speed limit the lights will change to green as you come along. This preacher was lying by claiming to have power over stop lights. Another creep claimed he filled his gas tank in his car by prayer. This too is balderdash.

One lady told me that her family lived on the same bowl of spaghetti for a week, and it never went down. This is a case of the lady wanting to convince me that she had the same power to produce food which Jesus had as he fed the five thousand. If I was going to claim a miracle of making food I would make endless shrimp Étouffée, not spaghetti.

If you are a sucker for thrills, and if you refuse to hold preachers accountable for their words and actions, you will become the slave of devils as they perform tricks in front of you.

2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

 

5. Signs are for the Jews

Charismatic leaders and preachers mock at Bible believer who question them. They ask, "Are you telling God he cannot do miracles today?" They then claim that Jesus wants to do miracles through faith healers the same way he did long ago in Galilee.

The issue is not about restricting God. It is about God restricting himself. He has chosen to work through faith today, but in answer to prayer, AND ON HIS SCHEDULE.

James 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

This is happening inside the Lord's Church today as people pray for one another. God answers these prayers in his time, and sometimes he withholds healing, as he did with Paul when he asked to be healed of his "thorn in the flesh." The big rally of thousands of people, with a famous Amos faith healer presiding, is not what James was describing above.

Furthermore, the healing which Jesus did was for a special purpose. The Church Age was not destined to see the same signs and wonders that Jesus did. The Jews would not believe in Jesus unless they say signs and wonders.

1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

John 2:18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.

Jesus had to show signs to the Jews, or they would not have believed. Many believed in him when they saw the miracles he did and the resurrection of Lazarus. But, the Greeks seek wisdom. This is for the Gentiles. The evidence of the power of God today is through preaching, not sign miracles.

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

If you cannot stay on the path to Heaven and be content with Bible preaching that is powerful, that is, if you cannot believe the doctrines of the Bible without seeing healings and hearing prophecies, you are limping on both legs. You are a rebel against the plan of God. God wants you to walk by faith, not by seeing a big show put on by Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland or your pastor. Indeed, the show of healing and prophecy your pastor produces is the work of devils.

 

6. Dirty preachers and dirty preaching

Many preachers today, especially in Charismatic circles, have a potty mouth. They talk in profane language and curse anyone who questions them. Benny Hinn said on TBN that he looked all through the Bible for a verse that told him he could get a machine gun and kill all his enemies, like ME.

Furthermore, these Charismatic leaders and preachers all too often LIVE dirty. They get divorces and keep right on allegedly healing and prophesying for God. God hates divorce, and he will not empower a divorced preacher. But, YOU keep right on following the creep, don't you?

And, these Charismatic leaders keep falling into bed with whores, like Jimmy Swaggart. And, Paul Crouch settled out of court with a sodomite he had an affair with in Lake Arrowhead, California. And, you keep right on watching TBN, right?

Any special power shown in the life and ministry of a Charismatic preacher or leader after one of these journeys into sexual sin and divorce..... that power it the power of Satan and devils. God is NOT in them.

Isaiah 28:7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

To God, they are the same sort of people whom he destroyed in Sodom. They are faggots to God. Who are they do YOU?

Jeremiah 5:31 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?

7. When the sign, prophecy, or wonder seems to come to pass

This can still be devils. What goes with the sign or wonder? Are you being asked to follow after teachings you know very well do not fit with Bible teaching? Are you hearing new things in prophecies which contradict the Bible? Are tongues telling you things that contradict the Bible or crate confusion? Are the signs you imagine are genuine being done by a divorced or adulterous preacher?

God speaks about this clear back in Moses' Law:

Deuteronomy 13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

If you cannot be content to walk after the Lord and his Word, which to you is the whole Bible, you are a rebel brat, and God will soon be chastening you soundly. Or, are you a bastard?

Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

 

 

CONCLUSION

It is necessary to leave a church where most of the above prevail. There is nothing in such a church to remind us of the order required by the Apostle Paul. The pastor of such a church is the center of attention, and people even recruit around the community by telling the lost, and other Christians, "We have a wonderful pastor who preaches the Word." Or, "Our church has something for the whole family."

No one brags on Jesus Christ. It may well be that Jesus is truly outside your church knocking to get back in.

Do you? I mean, do you talk about Jesus between Sundays to the lost around you? If not, you have the devilish infection which you got from your pastor.

I have put together here one of the most depressing articles I have ever done for this journal. I also know that I have offended most people who read this article. It is very hard to hear that an alleged "man of God" is really a servant of Satan.

If your pastor manifests many of the above qualities in his life and ministry, he has given place to the devil. He may actually be born again. That is, his spirit is the Lord's. But he has yielded his mind and body to the devil, and Satan has sent him a spiritual assistant, in the form of a devil, to manage his life and ministry.

Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

Why would God tell you that if it were not possible? And, it most certainly is possible for a pastor to give place to the devil. Your pastor has given place to the devil mentally and physically if you see several issues listed above dominating your pastor's life and messages. The result is bad manners spiritually. Your pastor has communications with devils, and they are corrupting him.

1 Corinthians 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

Your pastor has been tempted or under evil influence at some point, and he yielded to it.

Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Your pastor yielded to evil doctrine, or to passions of the flesh and pride. In any case, he is now 100% under the supervision of devils. You may say, "Oh no, Steve, Christians cannot be possessed of devils." That is true, but they can be possessed WITH devils. That is always the way possession is spoken of in the Gospels. This means that the devil need not be INSIDE the person. The person comes to you WITH devils.

My dog Roxie has lleas in the summer. The fleas do not possess Roxie, but Roxie comes to me WITH fleas. I cannot see the fleas, but Roxie's behavior tells me she has them. And, your pastor comes to you WITH devils managing him.

So, what will you do, now that the Holy Spirit has shown you that you have a devil possessed pastor?

Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 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.
19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

If you refuse to act upon what you have just learned, God will punish you. He may allow you and your wife and kids to become possessed with devils just like your pastor. Here is how God said it happened with Israel long ago:

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
7 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
8 They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
9 And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
10 For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.

Verse 9- "Like people, like priest." You will become like your pastor in his defeat and in his service to Satan.

Now, go do the right thing.
