When at various places that promote the false prosperity doctrine, I noticed many places have various unbiblical chants. That they recite in their proclamation that THEY’VE GOT SOME BIG MONEY COMING THEIR WAY. At many places that do this sort of thing, the pulpit pimps usually have it recited by everyone during the time people are about to show how duped they are and give the pimp more of their money. So they can do things like hope God gives them lunch money for the week, while they give 10%+ away to the pimp and mistakenly believe they are fulfilling a “church tithe”. So money can supposedly fall all over them. (Please see: Reconsidering the Tithe.)
I’m just posting a few examples of the insanity here with some analysis.
Here’s the first cult chant devised by a pimp that we’ll review:
New Birth South Metropolitan Church – Andr? Landers Head
Straight from their Online Giving web page:
The Givers Confession!
Father, empower me to bless your Kingdom.
I support the vision and the visionary of this house.
I will give you nothing from my pocket that did not come from my heart!
All I have is yours!
I will honor you with the first fruits and I will not withhold the tithes.
The devourer is rebuked off my life.
I am faithful, productive and fruitful.
Therefore, let your blessing rest on my house.
Father, we will build you a house.
Finished, Full and Free!
The above is also at recited at Love Sanctuary Community Church – Leo Smith Head
Pastor Pimp. See it on their web site here.
Notice, the above chant goes wayward in the 2nd statement “I support the vision and the visionary of this house.” Instead of giving to support the cause of Christ, instead of following Christ and his commandments, they are affirming they support some “vision” and it’s “visionary”. So whatever a man who is claimed to be the “visionary” has made up becomes the thing to follow. Making the ambitions of a man the Word of God, instead of scripture being the Word of God.
|Mark 7:8-9 (New American Standard Bible)
If the giving is being done to honor God, how come these pimps put so much of it into their buildings and the givers often KNOW the money is mostly for a building, when Christ said giving to Him is to be done as written in Matthew 25:31-46?
They proclaim “Father, we will build you a house.” While scripture says:
|1 Corinthians 6:19 (New American Standard Bible)
|1 Peter 2:5 (New American Standard Bible)
If our bodies are the temple and we are as living stones being built up as a spiritual house to the glory of God through Jesus Christ, why are people giving money with claims of building God a “house”? Many saints have been totally misled, to feel they are in old covenant times paying tithes (and what is being paid today is not even what a tithe really was) and thinking they must build God a grand temple of stone and other earthly materials. Ignoring that the Apostles of the Lord Jesus never told saints to go build grand buildings for God.
Those making the declaration above are being led into man worship and feeling if they can “build God a house”, that somehow it will result in God granting them material things. They don’t realize, that if they believed on the Lord Jesus for forgiveness of sin, that is when “the devourer was rebuked off their life”. You can’t buy the gift of God with money and to attempt such is TOTAL HERESY, Acts 8:20 [click to expand link]!
Acts 8:20 (New American Standard Bible)
Here is another prosperity cult chant for review:
Elijah Ministries Inc. Hank Hallas Head
Has a “Tither’s Declaration” on his web site, which reads as follows:
THE TITHER’S DECLARATION
Father, I thank You today for the honor of
sowing seed into Your kingdom.
I do so with a willing, generous and joyful heart!
I bring my tithes into Your church,
Knowing all it’s needs will be met.
I am testing You and trusting You,
To open the windows of heaven over my life with?
Jobs and promotions, raises and bonuses,
wonderful benefits, sales and commissions,
financial settlements, estates and inheritances,
interest on income,
rebates and returns, checks in the mail,
gifts and surprises, money going further,
bills decreasing and blessings increasing.
Thank You Lord for rebuking the devourer
all the days of may life,
as he seeks to steal, kill or destroy,
Your bountiful blessings in my life.
First they declare a verse of scripture totally not related to giving 10% of money wages. Then they talk about “sowing seeds”. Seed is NOT MONEY. Seed is the Word of God. This is the same error John Hagee makes. Then while giving 10% under the compulsion of feeling they are “robbing God” if they don’t, they declare they are giving willingly and of a joyful heart, not under compulsion. They claim they are bringing the “tithes into Your church”. Given we saints are the church, does this mean that this is the Deuteronomy 14:22-27 tithe and they are going to have a big party with all the money? They tell the Father they are testing Him, when Jesus made it clear we should not put the Lord our God to the “test”, Luke 4:12. Then they claim the windows of Heaven will open and all sorts of MATERIAL THINGS will fall out for them. It’s like a list out of Forbes Magazine! (Where did they get the silly list of things they want from?) This is the heretical doctrine God has the apostle Paul warn against in 1 Timothy 6. The thing it is noted saints should FLEE from and that is spawned from those who are of depraved mind and deprived of the truth. The declaration above is NOT representative of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus, but a false gospel.
The final one that will be reviewed here is not really a “chant” others are told to recite, but some pimp’s prayer for those he fleeces:
Reconciliation Ministries International – Dr. Guy Peh Head
This pimp claims this is his prayer for all that give him money. He calls those who give him money “Friends of the Nations”.
Prayer for Friends of the Nations:
Father I bless the sowers of Friends of the Nations program. I bless them with with the open floodgates of heaven pouring out such a blessing that they cannot contain it.
In the name of Jesus .I release genius, imagination, and creativity into them. I release an entrepreneurial spirit over them and I release the spirit of increase into their lives as they sow their seed. I bless them with jobs or better jobs, raises and bonuses, benefits, sales and commissions, favorable settlements, estates and inheritances, interest and income, rebates and returns, discount and dividends, check in the mail, gifts, surprises, found money, royalties, scholarship, grants, paid off bills and demolish debts, blessings and increase. I bless the Friends of the Nations program with abundant funds to do the work of the Kingdom and to bring in the harvest
In Jesus’ name. (Prayer of Dr. Guy Peh for Friends of the Nations)
How can any man proclaim he’s blessing somebody with “the open floodgates of heaven pouring out such a blessing that they cannot contain it.”? Is it not GOD who does any granting of anything from Heaven? How can a man claim he is telling the Father that he is blessing someone with something from Heaven? Is “Dr. Guy” Christ? Then he goes off into a litany of material things and claims it is for the benefit of “the work of the Kingdom”, in the name of Jesus. This certainly has the ring of a false teacher who is warming up for a run in with Matthew 7:21-23.
Saints, please don’t go around reciting unbiblical things like this and avoid all who seek to have you say them. Pray for them, if they are willing to listen show them it is great error, never affirm it. It is a message of another gospel and not the truth.
