T.D. Jakes Pimping for TBN – Night 1 of the TBN Pimp-a-thon! (Video)

by @ 9:24 am. Filed under Nuts on Parade, Video

Well I told you it was coming and on night one they broke out their home run hitter. T.D. Jakes twisted scripture and played a fleece game that was a sad sight to behold. I caught some of the video of this sorry excuse for a preacher, that some people choose to adore, fleecing people in the name of the Lord. The scripture he abused and twisted was 2 Kings 6:1-7. In short, it’s the story of a man who lost an ax head he had borrowed. The ax head fell into the water and this man didn’t know what to do. The prophet of God Elisha (Jakes mistakenly says it was Elijah) asked the man where the ax head fell, tossed in a stick and the iron ax head floated, so the man could retrieve the ax head. It was a miracle from almighty God and Jakes misrepresented the story to fleece the flock.

See the video of Jakes in action below.

T.D. Jakes Pimping for TBN

Notice Jakes says that:

You need to move so God can move. God said he would move if you would move.

Fully implying that if you give to TBN, you could get back all that you’ve lost in any area of your life. But in the scripture, the man who lost the ax head only had to tell Elisha he lost it, show Elisha where it was lost and Elisha was able to by God work a miracle to bring the ax head back. The man who lost the ax head didn’t need to sow a seed to have Elisha make the ax head float. Elisha, a true prophet of God helped someone in need at their moment of need. Jakes on the other hand, is a lying false prophet and twisted scripture in the name of TBN profit and who knows what TBN might have paid him to do it.

Jakes also said:

God said, I don’t need anything you lost to bless you. God will always use whatever you got left. The blessing isn’t in what you lost; the blessing is in what you got left. And if you will sow what you got left, God said I’ll give you back whatever it was.

Basically Jakes asked people to give TBN whatever they had and they would get back all that they’ve lost. He made claims regarding marriage, business and family. Including mothers who worry about their child. If you want money or anything else, he claimed it could be yours if you picked up that phone and gave money to TBN.

This was a terrible, horrible, disgusting abuse of God’s Word. By a hustler, a liar, a pimp, a shyster, working on behalf of a network that plays on God’s name for profit.

It is sad to see so many hold T.D. Jakes in high regard, but I pray exposing him will help people to realize how horrible this man is.

T.D. Jakes is a liar, false prophet and a false teacher. He claims the title “bishop”, but he is not fitting of the title and is one who the apostle Paul said that his mouth must be stopped.

Titus 1:5-11 (New King James Version)

5) For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you?

6) if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination.

7) For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money,

8 ) but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled,

9) holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.

10) For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision,

11) whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain.

Twisting scripture for the sake of dishonest gain. No one who has reviewed this post should ever give T.D. Jakes another penny of your money. Never purchase any of his materials and never attend any of his events. Likewise, you obviously should never give a dime to TBN. And personally I’m leery of anyone I come across that even dares to associate with those mentioned here.

Below is video of T.D. Jakes summarizing and closing his pimp game. He clarifies for anyone who didn’t understand, that you’re supposed to give TBN money, to “obey the Lord” and get this all to work. He says $1000 is nothing “but a stick”, but “throw that stick in the water”. Meaning give TBN $1000 or more if you have it. Once Jakes is done with his lies and deceit, TBN’s head man Paul Crouch takes the mic, backs up what Jakes said, tells people to start making their pledges and continue to call till they get through. This is the disgrace that claims the name of the Lord.

This is NOT the work of the Lord. These are NOT men of God. It is Satan the wolf using the name of the Lamb of God for profit.

    You said it best: this is terrible, horrible, disgusting. And might I add blatantly evil considering that TD Jakes is supposed to be so enlightened about God’s Word.

  2. Praiser4Life Says:

    When will the saints get it? If you want your breakthrough, your miracle, favor, and the many other things the saints desire, you have to obey God. It is not coming by somebody screaming, spitting and twisting scripture. God help us!

  3. IndependentConservative Says:

    And even by obeying God, you could receive earthly treatment like the apostles who were all killed and before that they were often beaten, imprisoned and scored.

    Christians standing for the faith in places like Darfur, Saudi Arabia and other places have received on this earth the reward of having limbs cut off of being killed. Many of them live for Christ their entire lives, never make much money and die at the hands of their enemies.

    Folks need to understand, that the Christian faith is simply not at all about earthly gain, but storing riches in Heaven. If folks want earthly riches, they can acquire them without ever being a Christian, plenty of non-Christians are rich. That’s not at all what following Jesus is about.

    And the way things are going, this Western world may soon learn the hard way the lessons our Christian brothers and sisters in other places already know all too well.

    Or if folks wish to fool themselves into thinking they deserve something, they can fall for the insanity of Creflo Dollar, who claims Christian 9/11 victims died simply because they were not fully following and listening to God. (TBN re-aired that sermon of Creflo’s today!) What were the apostles doing when they were killed? By Creflo’s twisted theology, they must have been taking a coffee break and missed when God told them to escape 🙄 …

    It’s not about what God can do for us beyond eternal life, which is far more than enough and far more than we deserve. It’s about what we can do for God and once we start asking for more, we’ve asked the wrong question.

    Yea Black folks are no long in slavery, but many a Black person who loved the Lord with all their heart died in it.

    Christians need to think long and hard about what they accepted Jesus for.

  4. Praiser4Life Says:

    I agree 100%! I subscribe to “The Voice of the Martyrs” and the persecution they report concerning Christians would blow the mind of most saints. Our brothers and sisters overseas who are being persecuted for the name of Christ put us to shame. It’s not even close. I also agree with you that one day soon the Christians in America will suffer persecution like they have never seen. I pray that all will be ready.

  5. art123 Says:

    So you stated that Creflo Dollar said that the reason those Christian 911 victims died because they were not listening to God? Why do these pulpit pimps act like they have God’s hotline and He tells them everything?

  6. IndependentConservative Says:

    See the video, Creflo says it. Given Creflo feels that he is guaranteed “total life prosperity” he has to make up something for when Christians die.

    It’s not on YouTube anymore, but there was footage of Creflo once even trashing John the Baptist and why he was in prison.

    This is also why he went on TBN once and claimed that people who do all he says do (sending money, lots of it) and remain poor must not be “loving right”. I once considered putting it on YouTube, but I figured if someone can’t figure him out with all that is already available, that would only confuse them. Because in those lies you could tell Creflo spent 6 minutes, 1 more minute than his usual 5 hot minutes, preparing his lies before presentation to the public. So you can’t be a novice and know why he’s lying. In fact, a novice would assume he’s telling the truth.
