This Week's Sermon: " faith and prosperity gospel " ( 1-5-16 )

Paul said;

" Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God. "  1 Corinthians 4:5


What I have to say is concerning the death of my precious wife.

The Lord Himself will judge, someday soon.

Even though Paul layed hands on the sick and prayed for many people that did get healed, not all did.

Paul said quite clearly;

" Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick. "  2 Timothy 4:20

Paul also said to Timothy, who he could have prayed for to be healed;

" Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities. "  1 Timothy 5:23


Paul reminded the Galatians saying;

" Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.

And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. "   Galatians 4:13-14


Faith, prosperity, positive confession and name it, claim it preachers of today would critically ask Paul, Trophimus and Timothy - " Where is your faith? "... if you can imagine anyone being that arrogant.


My friend, if you have a loved one who has a sign of cancer or anything else that is life threatening, let me encourage you to quit listening to faith, prosperity, positive confession and name it, claim it preachers and get your loved one to the doctor as soon as you can.

There are parents in the USA who are in trouble with the law because of neglect in getting their children to the doctor for treatment, thinking that their faith, prosperity, positive confession and name it, claim it preacher they follow will come through for them.

Get your loved one to the doctor as soon as you can if there is a life threatening situation.

The Lord can still heal in time but we must take precaution to take care of our loved ones, as God did create doctors for a reason and gave them the knowledge to help the sick.

I wonder how many people have died who might still be alive, had they gone to a doctor, rather than listen to faith, prosperity, positive confession and name it, claim it preachers.

The Lord knows and will judge.
