For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God.He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him, for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.

Kwame Kilpatrick recently went down to Dallas TX to get TD Jakes to coddle him in his sins since it wasn't enough to betray Southeastern MI he now needed to, illegally, while, charged with 8 felonies, get a prominent Bishop involved in his undoubted judgement. I take exception to this. When will men ever man up and line-up if they are allowed to play the race card and get someone who resembles them to coddle them in all kinds of sins?

Robert, A True Saint is under Holy Authority to expose ALL WOLVES that have entered amidst GOD's Flock. Satan comes as an "angel of light" to DECEIVE people. An "angel of light" is BEAUTIFUL and APPEALING and CONVINCING (in lies). Yes, GOD is the Ultimate Judge in that He sends people to Heaven and Hell, by His Hand. But, we saints are to use Righteous Judgement to help watch each other's back against the cunningly convincing Enemy and his "holy-looking" plants in the Church.
---Gordon on 2/22/08

Why don,t some of you trey to save the lost souls that are headed to hell. Let God do his job and make the decission. If we seek and look for God the word says we will find him. Jesus is a loving God and not some cosmic judge wait for us to mess up. His mercey surpasses all this foolish retoric and his love is ever lasting. I only trust the word of GOD and not man.....
---Robert on 2/21/08

Rob, Praise YAHUVEH here is another sheep, such as yourself, along with some others here, that KNOW THE TRUTH. It is frightening that these deluded people who are following these false teachers and thereby, their false doctrines, could, SOME, end up in Hell as they don't follow Truth, e'en though they THINK they are.
---Gordon on 2/21/08

Gordon, the majority of people I encounter will not study or do research because they areTOO LAZY.

These are the very people FALSE TEACHERS look for because FALSE TEACHERS know these people can be exploited and are easy prey.
---Rob on 2/20/08

RitaH, I meant "if" in the hypothetical sense. It's wiser to RESEARCH before assuming "it's not true". Even the Pharisees looked HOLY on the outside but were CORRUPT on the inside. We are in the Great Apostasy as predicted in the Bible. Many well known preachers and teachers aren't so true after all. It's not worth your soul to believe deceptions. Satan is EXTREMELY cunning, and he comes as an ANGEL OF LIGHT. And, how SWEET the angel of light SEEMS until he has his hook in your jaw....

Mima, I had never heard those things but as you have heard them from his own mouth I will not dispute it, but I am very disappointed to hear this.

In the world we live in today, what are people searching for, and what are their priorities.

Are they seeking true Salvation and eternity with God.

Have people been decieved into chasing after money, and the temporal things if this world.

According to a whole lot of unbelievers Jesus was not God, is not God. There are no prophets sent by God. And everyone who has been chosen by God are fakes. This is the belief of unbelievers.
---catherine on 2/18/08

---RitaH I have heard Billy Graham on Larry King live say that those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ still might go to heaven!! He desperately wants to hedge his bets. He wants approval by all people. Does that mean he's going to hell? No it means he is teaching heresy. And of course you're aware that he thinks Islam is a peaceful religion. Will that send him to hell? No. But it is not correct.
---mima on 2/18/08

Gordon "if Billy Graham is a Compromiser, used by Satan," You obviously know nothing at all about B.G. being a freemason. Your use of the word IF shows that. That being so, why are you perpetuating this rumour without substance? We will be held accountable for every idle word we speak. If you have evidence, produce it.
---RitaH on 2/18/08

RitaH, My point is to look into it yourself, for you MAY be quite surprised. I used to "believe" in many of the Word-Faith Preachers and Teachers, and thought that they were all Godly, and some were to begin with, but MANY have GONE ASTRAY for COVETOUSNESS, a GREEDY LOVE OF MONEY AND MATERIAL WEALTH, and are now Hell-bound. Things aren't always as holy and rosey as they appear.

A few years ago I heard T,D. Jakes say the people of God are to walk in DARKNESS, which is a direct contradiction of what is written in scripture. Remember Satan, is the author of lies which are contrary to the truth. Who is T.D. Jakes following?

I truly believe T.D. Jakes is drawing people away from Christ and salvation and leading them to Satan and eternal damnation through his vain philosophy and smooth speech, 1 Timothy 6:20-21, 2 Timothy 4:1-4 and Titus 1:10.
---Rob on 2/16/08

Gordon, yes I know you read about Satan lieing to Eve but you didn't read about Billy Graham in the same book did you? From where does the story come that B.G. is a freemason. Who started the story and why?
---RitaH on 2/15/08

RitaH, I didn't hear Satan lie as he did to Eve, myself personally, but I've read that he did. Of course, if Billy Graham is a Compromiser, used by Satan, then he's not going to blow his squeaky-clean cover by telling all the little Sheep that he's actually an underground Freemason. Satan is foolish, but not stoopid!
---Gordon on 2/15/08

Melissa, have you ever heard Billy Graham SAY he is a freemason? Have you personally heard him SAY he does not believe Jesus is the ONLY way to God? I know these things are said about him but hearing others say that he says it is not KNOWING he has said it. Unless you've heard it from his own mouth please be careful what you read on the internet and hear as tittle-tattle from those who don't like him. If you have heard him say these things personally please share with us where and when he said them.

fyi... billy graham may have been a "good" preacher once upon a time. Wayyyyyyyyyy back when he first began. But he soon became heavily involved with the freemasons, and is a high degree mason, himself. Not too mention his twisted, unscriptural comments in the past few years prove this fact strongly. He even denies that Christ is the only way to God. Research it for yourselves. He is leading people astray. :(

This is the problem with TV celebreties being treated like theologians. They are not.
Some are sincere God fearing, God loving people and others are snakes.
open your bible and read it, pray continually and get in a good sound church that lifts Jesus and not a man.
Stay far from manipulative or social gospel churches and learn to walk in His grace and power.

I hope you understand that in order to know truth from error one has to judge and God commands Jn17:24 "judge righteous judgement"

The standard is simple God's Holy Word

The word of God is no respecter of persons

Isa8:20 "If they do not speak according to this word it is because there's no light in them"

humbly I tell you the truth, Jakes or Osteen have no light in them that's what God says and he also says let them be acursed Gal.1:8-9

1. TD Jakes is a United Pentecostal and a Oneness professer, does not believe in the Trinity nor the gospel of Sovereign Grace.

If you want more information on false prophets or on Mr.Jakes just ask. ans. your ? there's a bunch on Sovereign Grace Articles and there's a bunch more though they are a minority and generally one has to look for them

Also remember Matthew 7:2 "For in the way you judge, you will be judged, and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.

As far as TD Jakes, I cannot see his heart nor can I see anyone elses heart. Only God can. But I do believe in righteous judgement. When I am listening to someone preach about my Lord Jesus Christ, I always listen to see if what they are teaching lines up with the truth of God's word. Jesus said, "My sheep know my voice".

They are blind leaders, leading the blind

---steven-rem7000 on 9/26/07

denna, Scripture tells us not to judge without looking at our own hearts first... That said, we are to discern/judge. If a man or woman is preaching contrary to scripture, correction must be brought. If they won't receive correction... then we must warn others so they are not ensnared by a false Gospel.
---daphn8897 on 9/26/07

It is so amazing to me there are so many people who are so quick to judge other people when they have no idea what is in a person's heart. I have seen blogs on T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen and others who have been crucified here.

I have a very serious feeling if Jesus Christ were to walk into their church they would find fault with Him. What does the Bible say about judge not?

I am amazed with how many people will listen to others, and read books written by others, but they will never open and study the BIBLE for themselves.

Many people claim to be sharing THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, which is the GOSPEL OF SALVATION, but these people seldom, if ever talk about SALVATION.

I remember watching T.D. Jakes on television.

He was delivering a message that was entitled "I HAVE SEEN THE STAR".


T.D. also has written a book entitled, "FOLLOW THE STAR."

Well when I went to his building, this man Velcro Jakes stated, "Give me my praise!" repeatedly and the people went bezerk. He is not a man of God when he is asking the people to give me my praise. There is only One who deserves the praise, and that is is God. Jesus Christ is His Son!!! Church of Christ.....

exzucuh: You sound like Jesus Only/Oneness in your last posting.

Are you oneness?

If you struggle believing Jakes is. I struggled with this as well, cause the man can communicate.

I work and witness to oneness and their language is often difficult to discern.

It not until the get on the "What is his name" argument that you start to hear another gospel.

Word of God says we have one God and our Father and he is The Holy Spirit that over shadowed Mary , and by the Logos seed of God in Mary, Christ was conceived, and the word was made Flesh and became the express Image of God And in the Son was the Fullness of the Father and he thought it not robbery to be equal with God but humbled himself as a servant, and Go to the Cross and by his sacrifice we are redeemed and for his obedience the Father delivered all power into Jesus hands.

Mt 7:21-23 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.
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?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Jake quote below

It's a theological description for something that is so beyond human comprehension I'm not sure we can totally hold God to a numerical system. The Lord said, Behold, O Israel, the Lord thy God is one, and beside him there is no other. When God got ready to make a man that looked like him, he didn't make three. He made one. However, one man had three parts. Body, soul, spirit.

We have one God, but he is Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Spirit in regeneration.

I watch Pastor TD Jakes on television, and He is a "fire and brimstone" evangelist many are fearful of. I think we need to realize,Christianity is not always about "roses and sweetness". There is a prophetic "narrow Door" Jesus preaches about; 'many will try to enter and will not be able to'(Luke 13:24).
---rosem4839 on 1/18/07

Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Spirit in regeneration are modes, not persons.

COGIC believes in the bible doctrine of 3 persons, one God. I was raised as one all my life.
---TDG on 1/18/07

TD JAKES is a man of God, to say that he is oneness, faith movement or pentecostal means nothing, what matters is the effect of his messages, to say he is false needs a word test, tell us then what kind of word test that you did on him to call him false. A word test is different from your church doctrine or your beliefs. Lets mind who God is than who is the Devil.
---Elvis on 1/18/07

T D Jakes is Not a Oneness, he is of the CHOGIC
pentecostal movement that came out of the original Church, The Assembly of God split out of this Church mainly because they did not want to go to Church with Black people, and the United pentecostal church the true Oneness Split because of the Godhead difference,

Many of you have no Idea what you believe and you attack others.You trinitarians say One God in three manifestations. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost, Oneness say there is only one God and he is Jesus Christ, Both these doctrine are contrary to what God says we are to Believe. God says We are to believe in One God our Father who sent his only begotten Son to Die For Our Sins. And the one true God our Father is in his Son Jesus Christ who through him we have access to the Father.

Jakes is a modalist, Jesus only, Oneness Penecostal. Regardless of ability, this is false biblical doctrine.

He is also Word Faith, believe that your words have as much creative power as God's.

"Esau was HUNGRY and he had to be in the field for days to let it all go over lentils."

Somehow, I see the work of Christ in that. God's hunger for the hearts of man was the same hunger in Jesus as He walked the earth. God came in the flesh and manifested Himself. Jesus walked among fallen humanity, carrying the heart of the Father. It was that heart of love that constrained Jesus to do what He did.

Jesus let go of functioning as God and submitted Himself to the Father as the Son of Man. He walked as a man with the Spirit of God in Him. At the end of His days, He gave up His birthright, His inheritance as one with God, when He knelt in that garden and became obedient unto death and then became sin with our sin by drinking the cup. He did it all for the "lentil stew" (red beans from the red man Adam) called humanity.
---Linda6563 on 11/15/06

Thankfully Esau, being a flesh man, could not get back that birthright but the second Adam, the quickening spirit, got it all back and double. We are His birthright, His inheritance, but to get us He had to think of someone other than Himself and be love's supreme sacrifice. He had to descend to where we really were before He could take us to where He was going.
---Linda6563 on 11/15/06

The practical end of the story is that the flesh man will never inherit the blessing, that sowing to the flesh will reap corruption, that being selfish drives the kingdom away from you, that only by walking in the Spirit does the double portion (who is Christ) express Himself through His body, and that what you hunger for is really, really important.

Jesus said when U fast not if U fast. So I believe all Christians if med. poss.should fast in the reg. manner. I unnderstand U can fast many other ways & that is great especially if med. U cant. I also know their is the complete, Daniel, etc. I personally fast but I make such it does not become"an" idol to me or make me feel "religously above others" we must be careful because even good intentions the devil can throw a dart & we can make it wrong/flaunt it over others.

My Godfather is 1 of the most Holy men I know.I went on a 10 day fast. He said why? I was shocked my pride said because I want be closer to God. He said fast but only fast due to the reason God wants U to it isnt how long u fast it is reason & the heart. He hit my pride I needed it. I thought look how long I can fast, I am not a slave to my body but master to it. In reality I was fasting w/ pride so it would have been all in vain. But he corrected me I needed it & then fasted for the right reason.

Leon , I agree with you in regard to Esau and his birthright, MAJOR mistake! A good minister can preach many powerful sermons about that. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 11/14/06


You want to make Esau into a fool. You want to make it seem like he would rather go without his birthright than without dinner. You want to portray him as having no more control over his appetite than a dog has. I do not agree. Esau was HUNGRY and he had to be in the field for days to let it all go over lentils.

---Reiter on 11/14/06

Reiter: Thank you! Yes, I have & do periodically fast, & do know what hunger is.

Esau had just come from working in the field. He wasn't coming off a fast. In a moment of weakness he devalued & sold his earthly blessing (inheritance) for bread & a bowl of bean soup. Later, he realized his folly; but, it was too late.

Would you agree Esau should've cared about his inheritance before selling it? Afterwards he cared; but, suffered the consequences of not heeding the truth.

He is a great story teller I have many Black friends & they tell me it is African tradition to be orators, great story tellers passed down thru oral tradition.

Hunger is what Esau was experiencing.
When you are truly hungry, you don't care about a legal transaction [like inheritence]; what you care about is getting food in so you don't pass out.

By the way Okebaram: Yes, what Esau did was very, very stupid! My understanding of "stupid" is when one knows what's right & yet chooses not to do the right thing.

Maybe what Esau did was no more stupid than what some Christians today (who friviously give up their birthright -- inheritance) do so they can fill their bellies (instant gratification) & experientially "feel" full.

Don't try to dog Jakes for not being [what you consider to be] in line with christian principles. There are always religious differences between people, but these matter little. What matters is the Love in a person's Heart.

---Reiter on 11/12/06

Okebaram, I'm not trying to "dog" you bud. :) But I do have a couple of questions:

1.) Do you trample the truth of God's precious word under your feet?

2.) Do you buy ( pay attention to & receive) God's truth as recorded in the Bible or do you choose to render the truth as being inconsequential (valueless) & exchange (trade) it for a lie?

My inputs on this particular blog have to do specifically with T.D. Jakes' false doctrine regarding the Trinity.
---Leon on 11/12/06

Leon, I already read the passage; and it does not validate your claims because it speaks of buying the truth (ie sacrificing to get truth) and not selling it (ie not exchanging it for stupid stuff, like Esau did). What does that have to do with TD Jakes? I don't know if you are trying to say he's books should be free. But you still haven't answered my question: who is the swine you are refering to?
