Glorify the Creator, not that feeble pastor



JEHOVAH God has given creation the power to choose between good and bad.

Unfortunately, many among us are choosing badly. They are choosing darkness ahead of light.

This manifests itself at the churches where we worship today, as a majority of pastors and church founders compete for personal glory with the Creator – Jehovah God.

1 Peter 1:18 says: “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors.”

Glory must be given only to the Creator of heaven and earth, who is Jehovah God, through His begotten son, Jesus Christ.

It is therefore worrisome when one visits churches where nowadays speaker after speaker dedicates precious time of worship and praise on microphones glorifying individual church founders, prophets, pastors and their spouses at the expense of Jehovah God’s glory.

That’s Satanism in disguise, disgustingly.

People of God, glory must, always and unconditionally, be given to the one and only true Living Jehovah God. Choose well. Choose light. Choose Him.

The book of Deuteronomy 30:19 in the New Living Translation version confirms my teaching: “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!”

Simply put, if you choose glorifying a perishing human being at the expense of the Creator, tough luck! But if you choose glorifying the true Living Jehovah God, through His begotten son, Jesus Christ, then there is salvation in your life.

People of God, choose wisely for from heaven, He is closely watching you.

The book of Romans 11:36 confirms this: “For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him (Jehovah God) forever! Amen.”

So, why do we have believers and church followers glorifying their leaders at the expense of Jehovah God? Why do such leaders enjoy such cronyism and not rebuke such wayward congregants?

Surely, they know the teachings and know they are basking in God’s glory.

In my journey with Jehovah God, I have seen many false prophets, pastors and church founders feted in different church assemblies as if they are God. They too like such praises! They feel big about it! They love it and feel energised by such glory being given to them instead of Jehovah God. Religious leaders should be speaking out against such but alas, they enjoy it.

If they are true followers of Jehovah God they must outrightly reject this. Glory, praise and worship must be given only to Jehovah God, not individuals.

Ever wondered why today each and every church has a bible college?

The secret behind this is to indoctrinate would-be pastors to preach the gospel of individuals characterised by money and selfish benefits.

Always remember Jehovah God is a jealous God who does not share the glory with anybody.

According to Isaiah 42:8 in the NET Bible version: “I am the LORD! That is my name! I will not share my glory with anyone else, or the praise due me with idols.”

The church has been infiltrated by the devil and his demons masquerading as prophets and pastors. Jehovah God’s people are confused.

Disturbingly, economic challenges have thrust some so-called pastors into the limelight to start their churches and enrich themselves at the expense of the docile public.

Some of the pastors we see in many churches have not been called by God. They are inspired by the Devil.

They own private jets, mansions and businesses across the world. They are a brand. They trend. They are trendsetters in everything not linked to the gospel Hear me clearly, l’m not saying it’s bad to be rich, but it becomes Satanic or evil when one accumulates wealth from falsely abusing the word of God.

In comparison, Jesus Christ neither owned a mansion nor a chariot to take Him from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’ to fulfill the will of Jehovah God as opposed to the highflying pastors we see today. Poorly equipped in spirit, congregants endorse such glaring Satanism. It’s a shame!

I describe these as gospel politicians. They are using the pulpit to preaching the gospel of self enrichment.

Beloved brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, when Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, He did not teach nor encourage His disciples to start bible colleges.

Instead, Jesus advised His disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit for guidance. Peter was a mere fisherman without going to any bible college, but he preached the true gospel of salvation that made thousands repent from sinful acts.

This is confirmed in Acts 1:8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Here, Jesus is not telling us only pastors who went to Bible Colleges for indoctrination shall be witnesses, a big NO!.

Jesus Christ, the Son of the true Living Jehovah God, says, only when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you shall then start witnessing.

But today, we only see the witnessing of the gospel being allowed to be preached by those only have been indoctrinated by church founders as rightful preachers, pray for people yet without the power of Jehovah God to drive out demons, heal the sick nor raise the dead.

I vividly remember high priests such as Caiaphas, John, Alexander and others of the high priest’s family had arrested Peter and John for preaching without formerly bible training to do so.

Acts 4:13: “The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.”

But if you go back to Acts 4:7-10, you shall see the Holy Spirit worked with them despite being uneducated from any bible college.

Their gospel indoctrination came from the true Holy Spirit of Jehovah God.

Acts 4:7-10 confirms my True Gospel when the two disciples were brought for questing by high priests: “By what power, or in whose name, have you done this?”

But Peter responded filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and elders of our people, are we being questioned today because we’ve done a good deed for a crippled man? Do you want to know how he was healed? Let me clearly state to all of you and to all the people of Israel that he was healed by the powerful name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, the man you crucified but whom God raised from the dead.”

You see, what qualifies one to Jesus’ witness is to be pure in heart at the same time seeking Jehovah God’s face so that all these things shall be added unto our lives.

Worse still, majority of the new crop of pastors we see always take other believers’ spouses while using the name of God. They are into rumour mongering as well as being unrighteous instead of preaching the gospel of righteousness and salvation. Most of their sermons are centred on money, money and more money, which is a confirmation they are from the other side of Hell.

According to John 14:16-17, Jesus says: “And I will ask the Father (Jehovah God), and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever….the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and He will be in you.”

Interestingly, when you have the true Holy Spirit of Jehovah God upon yourselves, even if you touch snakes, they would not bite you at all neither drinking deadly poison would ever harm you. This is only for those that who believe in Jehovah God.

Mark 16:17-18 confirm this in the New International Version: “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

But to achieve all these, believers have to be righteous. Most interestingly, those that are pure in heart shall see Jehovah God, not those who do the will of greedy individuals.

Matthew 5:8 concurs, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

But what excites me most is Paul, who challenged Jesus’ disciples for abusing their position to mislead Jehovah God’s people.

I like Apostle Paul so much for preaching the gospel of truth and salvation without fear.

Despite not attending any bible college, Paul had the temerity to challenge the disciples, who walked with Jesus, precisely Peter, John, James and Andrew.

More so, Apostle Paul was not baptized by pastors or prophets so that he may be called a preacher. A new believer called Ananias baptized Saul to become Apostle Paul, end of story.

When the true Holy Spirit of Jehovah God was upon Paul, at one time, he challenged the disciples that walked with Jesus for trying to confuse the True Gospel.

According to Galatians 2:6“And the leaders of the church had nothing to add to what I was preaching. (By the way, their reputation as great leaders made no difference to me, for God has no favorites.)”

Galatians 2:11-15: “But when Peter came to Antioch, I had to oppose him to his face, for what he did was very wrong. When he first arrived, he ate with the Gentile Christians, who were not circumcised. But afterward, when some friends of James came, Peter wouldn’t eat with the Gentiles anymore. He was afraid of criticism from these people who insisted on the necessity of circumcision. As a result, other Jewish Christians followed Peter’s hypocrisy, and even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy. When I saw that they were not following the truth of the gospel message, I said to Peter in front of all the others, “Since you, a Jew by birth, have discarded the Jewish laws and are living like a Gentile, why are you now trying to make these Gentiles follow the Jewish traditions?”You and I are Jews by birth, not ‘sinners’ like the Gentiles.

Now, our main dilemma as believers today, we neither read nor study the Bible on our own to know the truth. We only wait for Sundays for bogus preachers to take advantage of us to indoctrinate us, our children and even the most educated one to confuse the entire world from the truth.

When one becomes pure in heart, and repents from sins, Jesus assures us of the power over unclean spirits and healing of the sick. Such signs and wonders are not only the monopoly or privilege of pastors, bishops, prophets or church founders, but to those who believe in Jehovah God.

More so, prophets are not only church founders. They are ordinary beings like you and I as long as we seek Jehovah God’s face in truth and faith.

You and I can always prophesy if we invite Jesus to come into our lives.

Further in the book of Joel 2:28, Jehovah God says: “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.”

Here, we see Jehovah God confirming His Holy Spirit will come to all believers, who are clean in hearts, not hypocrites.

I challenge you believers to choose wisely. Sometimes we choose the path to hell unknowingly.

Let not this be misconstrued as influencing a rebellion against pastors and church founders. I’m encouraging all of you to draw closer to Jehovah God through reading of His word.

It is an encouragement to study the bible so that you readers (believers) are fully equipped with the Word of truth.

One of the Bible’s greatest principles is “choose life.” God sets before us two ways of life for both good and bad.

He commands us to choose life so that we may live fully, both now and in His Kingdom. But we can opt for the other way of sin just as readily.

In conclusion, I leave you two scriptures to read and look deep into your hearts:

In the book of Ephesians 2:1-3 of the New Living Translation version, Apostle Paul says: “Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil–the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.”

Finally, my warning to you believers, read very carefully, Matthew 24:24, “For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones.”

To believers who have faith in this True Gospel, say Amen!
