False teachings in the church in Malaysia
Over the years, I have come to the conclusion that there is much false teaching in the churches in Malaysia. I came to this conclusion when I was reprimanded by some pastors and lay people. As a consequence I have stopped attending many of these churches.
I have noticed that many of these people act in an unchristian way in that they do call up other pastors of other churches and try to spread rumours about ones self. This is totally unlike what Jesus Christ would have done. I have seen pastors who show extreme jealously and hatred towards the people who attend their church. This is not the way Jesus Christ would have wanted his pastors to behave. Worst still many of them are willing to teach stuff that is not in the Bible and are very proud of standing at the pulpit and quoting such works.
I have even seen pastors, out hatred and wickedness, curse those who attend the alter call.
The Lord God's commandments in the Book of Leviticus
In the book of Leviticus 19:11-19 the Lord commands as:-
Do not steal.
Do not lie.
Do not deceive one another.
Do not swear falsely by my name and so profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.
Do not defraud or rob your neighbor.
Do not hold back the wages of a hired worker overnight.
Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but fear your God. I am the Lord.
Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.
Do not go about spreading slander among your people.
Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor's life. I am the Lord.
Do not hate a fellow brother in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt.
Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
Keep my decrees.
Many pastors never follow what the Lord God has commanded.
False spirits in the Church
I quote 1 John 4:1-3 :-
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.
The Spirit of the Anti Christ (Satan)
From my experience the spirit of the Antichrist will try to misinterpret the Bible so that we will be mislead and not receive the Lord God's blessing and grace.
Misleading teachings of the AntiChirst
1. The spirit of the Antichrist will want us to change the Bible. In Malaysia the Christians were trying to introduce the Muslim name for God into the Malay translation of the Bible. This should not have happened as The Jewish prophets never used this term. Neither did Jesus Christ use the term. Jesus Christ had used the term Father. In fact a more acceptable term would have been YHWH which I have explained the hidden meaning. After many years pondering on the meaning of YHWH I believe that Modern English is spoken in heaven.
2. Some church elders are now teaching that we should not eat pork. This is quiet shocking for two reasons shown in the Bible.
A) Peter's Vision as in Book of Acts 10:9-23
About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat."
"Surely not, Lord!" Peter replied. "I have never eaten anything impure or unclean."
The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean."
This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
While Peter was wondering about the meaning of the vision, the men sent by Cornelius found out where Simon's house was and stopped at the gate. They called out, asking if Simon who was known as Peter was staying there.
While Peter was still thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Simon, three men are looking for you. So get up and go downstairs. Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them."
Peter went down and said to the men, "I'm the one you're looking for. Why have you come?"
The men replied, "We have come from Cornelius the centurion. He is a righteous and God-fearing man, who is respected by all the Jewish people. A holy angel told him to ask you to come to his house so that he could hear what you have to say." Then Peter invited the men into the house to be his guests.
B) That which defiles Mathew 15:10-11
Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand. What goes into someone's mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them."
Peter's vision give to him by the Lord God confirms what Jesus said about what goes into your mouth does not cause you to sin. It is what comes out of hearts that causes us to sin and subjects us to judgement.
These two items give you a very clear picture that there is no such thing as a unclean animal that cannot be eaten by Christians. Both the Lord God and Jesus Christ have set us free.
3. Another teaching making the rounds is that we are not allowed to gamble
Search all the bible and there is no where in which the Lord God or Jesus Christ forbid us to gamble. This is pure false teaching from the church elders. Do not trust any church elder that forbids gambling.
I found this out the hard way. I had not had any income for over 7 years. Yes, its true my books have been pirated so I have hardly any sales from them. I had asked people to get me a job but no one was interested. I had asked many people to help and even went to research grant institutions for help but all turned me down. As a last resort I began to pray to the Lord God for help. The Lord God is truly amazing in that he gave me visions and dreams of what 4D numbers to buy provided I only bought a small amount. He would only allow me to by RM2 big and RM2 small at most. If I bought anything more the numbers never came out. In 2015 I won 3 times. Once as much as RM12,000/- (USD3,000/-). The Lord God is a truly amazing and great God. Only He can give generously.
In my innocence, I gave (tithes are 10%) the church I was attending RM2,000 which is more than 10% (actually,16.67%) and the pastors quickly grabbed the money. Then they asked me how I got the money and I told them how the Lord God had given me the 4D numbers in dreams and visions. They became furious and scolded me and accused of getting the money from a, I quote the pastors words, 'gambling spirit'. I did not realise they would treat me with such hatred and rage. So when I asked them to return the RM2,000/- as they said it was not from God, they simply refused to return the money and denied that they said I received the money from a 'gambling spirit'. They then insisted I was a gambler! Unbelievable how the church pastors can lie, cheat and deceive people for money. Wow, was this the Church of Satan or a Church of Jesus Christ?
I think the pastor was very jealous that I could pray for help from the Lord God and receive help but the pastor could not. Later at another service, one of the pastors stood at the pulpit and said he was going to teach stuff that was not in the Bible (this is very bad) and began tell us not to buy 4D numbers. Daring weren't they? Worst still, the Lord showed me that the pastors were praying that I could not win anymore 4d prizes. How wicked were they? Amazing isn't that we come to church to get God's grace and blessing but these pastors do wicked things to make us suffer more. After this I told the pastor in his face that he was praying that I could not win any more money and he never denied it. I left the church.
I had a similar problem in the next church I attend. When I told them about winning 4D money they became furious. They accused me of getting money from Satan! Never believe any church, pastor or church elder who tells you that wining money on 4d or 5d or 6d or any lottery is a gift from the gambling spirit. Ask them if they have seen this gambling spirit. This is false teaching and shows how ungrateful you are towards the Lord God.
I told them never to deny that the Lord God is the provider because if you do deny it then you are worshiping Satan and giving Satan the credit and the thanks for giving you money.
The Lord God provides wealth
Do Not Forget the Lord Deuteronomy 8:18 "But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today."
Hannah's Prayer 1 Samuel 2:7-8 "The Lord brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and raises up. The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor."
Solomon Asks for Wisdom and the Lord answers in 1 Kings 3:13 "Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for both wealth and honor so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings."
Proverbs 10:22 "The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it."
John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
This indicates that the devil does not provide any gifts at all. He comes to steal, kill and destroy so that we will hate the Lord God. If you read the Book of Job you will realise that Satan actually has no power, he has to get the Lord God's permission before he can do anything. All gifts are from the Lord God and not from Satan or his army of devils and demons. All they can do is to lie to you that they are the ones who gave you those gifts. So do not thank Satan. What would God think if you thanked Satan? How ungrateful can you be? Thank God for all your winnings and do not gamble too much as if you check the probability of winning you will realise you will get less than what you put in. I have made many mathematical models of different gambling systems and can assure you that you will definitely need God's help to win. This means you will need to pray many hours a day to win some money on the lottery or by gambling. The church is completely wrong. Only the Lord God gives gifts.
Why did the Lord God or Jesus Christ not ban gambling?
How do we please the Lord God? There is nothing that we can give him as he is the creator of everything in the universe. There is only one way to please the Lord God and that is to act in faith, to believe in Him. When you go out and take risk, you need to act in faith and believe there will be large rewards. If you go out into the seas and fish, you are taking a risk and you must act in faith that you will have a big catch. Similarly, when you have no capital and no income, you will turn to 4d numbers and lotteries to raise capital and we act in faith and believe the Lord God will provide. This is why the Lord God or Jesus Christ never banned gambling.
4. Cannot drink alcohol
This is wrong and goes against the words and acts of Jesus Christ.
Israel's Restoration Amos 9:13-15 "The days are coming," declares the Lord, "when the reaper will be overtaken by the plowman and the planter by the one treading grapes. New wine will drip from the mountains and flow from all the hills, and I will bring my people Israel back from exile. "They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them," says the Lord your God. This prophesy has come to pass.
Here the Lord God himself is saying that his people will build vine yards and drink their wine - its not grape juice.
Sayings of King Lemuel Proverbs 31: It is not for kings, O Lemuel- it is not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer, lest they drink and forget what has been decreed, and deprive all the oppressed of their rights. Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish! Let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more. Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
King Lemuel does mention that the commoners and the poor are allowed to drink beer and wine.
Jesus Changes Water Into Wine John 2:6-11: Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now." What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him."
From the above passage it is very clear that Jesus Christ did turn water into wine. You will notice that the master of the banquet testified that it was very good quality wine. The master of the banquet would have been a seasoned wine drinker and would have made the difference between grape juice and wine. Anyway why would Jesus Christ, being the Son of God, and being very honest and straight forward person, would want to cheat the master of the banquet with grape juice instead of real alcohol based wine? Jesus Christ says in John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." He always told the truth.
The Last Supper in Mark 14:23-24 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many," he said to them. "Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."
If we want to deny Jesus Christ we can forbid the drinking of alcohol as Jesus Christ turned water into wine for the guests to drink. By doing this he did not forbid drinking alcohol. Furthermore when we look at the events of the last supper we find Jesus Christ serving the "fruit of the vine". There is a lot of debate as to whether this was wine or grape juice. This last supper occurred during the Passover celebrations so there must have been plenty of grape juice or wine in the stores. Please read christiancourier.com was the fruit of the vine fermented. As a amateur bread maker making sourdough bread I know that wild yeast and bacteria start fermenting dough and fruit juices with minutes. If the skin of the fruit is mixed in the juice there would be a lot of wild yeast and bacteria fermenting the juice that was released from the fruits by pressing. It would probably been a weak wine and the alcoholic content would have depended on how long it was in storage but don't you think the Jesus Christ did not know this. This means that if we forbid the drinking of alcoholic drinks we are also suppressing the drinking of the blood of Jesus Christ. In the paragraph above he took the cup of the "fruit of the vine" and said this is my blood of the covenant. We cannot forbid the taking of the blood of Jesus Christ so we cannot forbid the drinking of alcohol.
Is this the islamization of the churches in Malaysia?
Christians do not be swayed by false teachings and what you hear. Follow Jesus Christ's teachings as he said them. Obedience to his teachings has freed us of many restrictions and taboos.
