December 7, 2011 By Beginning and End Osteen’s event will charge as much as $147 per ticket. 2 Peter 2:1  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. The wealthy man’s misplaced confidence in his wealth made the man so blind that he assumed he knew how long his life would be. The essence of being a follower of Jesus is the willingness to forego the sinful pleasures of today or their own personal agenda for the greater glory of eternal life and membership in God’s Kingdom.
As a Pharisee, living in 1st century Judea, the Apostle Paul (then known as Saul), was a well-respected leader in his community. 10And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. Paul received divine revelation, performed supernatural miracles and spoke to Jesus directly during his ministry (things that Prosperity Preachers claim to do on a weekly basis).
And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. Osteen:  “God wants us to have healthy, positive self-images, to see ourselves as priceless treasures. Time and time again, Osteen’s message, while very positive and uplifting to the human ego, is going against what the Bible instructs for Godly living.
1 Timothy 4: 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.
God was so pleased with Job, He declared him the most faithful, God-fearing man on the planet! Additionally, nowhere is Jesus Christ or being saved from sin even being mentioned in Osteen’s message. Pastor Munroe recently charged $199 just to watch a pay-per-view showing of his church conference on the internet! As will be seen in the video below, not only is Munroe preaching unbiblical heresy, he is also preaching from an Antichrist spirit.
And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. Jesus’ point was that the Kingdom of God at present, arrives when someone puts their faith in Him.
This verse is explaining that the main purpose of a follower of Christ is to preach the gospel. The entire mission of Jesus was to give His life and resurrect so He could provide eternal life to those who believe and trust in Him.
Like Osteen, Munroe is charging believers outrageous prices to watch him share his false Gospel. When Jesus presented Himself to Israel as their Messiah by entering Jerusalem on a donkey (in accordance with the Old Testament prophecies of how the Messiah would enter the Holy City in the precise year and day that the Messiah was prophesied to arrive), he immediately went to the Holy Temple. As Christians, we can pray for a new job, a raise, for a home, cars, money to support our families and material gain.
It doesn’t say you will have what you desire- maybe a miraculous healing- it says you will have Gods perfect peace. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And in the parable Jesus speaks of a man who was rich and successful to the point that he could not even store everything he had.
He gave no credit to God for the crops growing so well and then showed he had no fear of God by his boastful attitude and ideas that he knew his own lifespan. Joel Osteen has written many books and rightfully deserves the income from the millions of copies that he has sold.
What if it is God’s will that a well-to-do young woman, give up a great future in college, a successful career and lifestyle to go live in one of the poorest, war-torn regions of Africa and start a ministry? There is nothing we have in our short time on the Earth in this life that we can take with us to the grave. Jesus preached that we should not even worry about these daily cares when we have our faith and trust in The Lord.
A Roman Citizen, he enjoyed many benefits and a position of privilege among his Jewish brethren. He wants us to feel good about ourselves… God sees you as a champion… He regards you as a strong, courageous, successful, overcoming person” (p. Mental Visualization:  “The first step to living at your full potential is to enlarge your vision. You must conceive it in your heart and mind before you can receive it… You must make room for increase in your own thinking, and then God will bring those things to pass” (pp. Stop talking to God about how big your mountains are, and start talking to your mountains about how big your God is” (p. By seeking God and putting faith in God and Biblical living, we can re-enter the Kingdom and reclaim our Royal position. Once we have re-entered the Kingdom, all material blessings are available to us because we now have full dominion over the Earth and everything in it. From the onset, he denies Jesus Christ any glory by saying Jesus was merely a messenger to let us know about the Kingdom of God and the power we have to reclaim the Earth and all of its goods.

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. Jesus died because that was the only way to satisfy the wrath of God against the sins of every human being who has ever lived.
And the Gospel is about Jesus saving humanity from our sins, not about taking dominion of the Earth today. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. The Prosperity Gospel has become a global sensation in the church and it is rooted on all of the exact things that Jesus preached against. With much of the religious leadership of the day preaching man-made doctrine instead of the Bible, the religious practice had moved from Godliness.  As a result, the outer parts of the temple were being used to buy and sell goods.
And just as Jesus prophesied, in churches today that continue to see Pastors and their staff literally make millions off of their congregations while teaching heresy. And any blessings we receive today come with the understanding that they can be literally gone tomorrow if God so sees fit.
I know some people want more than that, but always remember- the things of this world are fleeting. 3And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
Christians can work, make incomes and enjoy material success, if it is God’s will for us. But it is the doctrine that is being preached that is at issue as it turns the focus from eternal life to the present life and emphasizes personal desire of following the desires of God. What Osteen and other prosperity Gospel preachers miss out on is the fact that not only does the Bible guarantee suffering, that trials and tribulations actually help the relationship between a Christian and God.
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Contrast this with Osteen: “It’s going to happen… Suddenly, your situation will change for the better…He will bring your dreams to pass” (pp.
To live your best life now, you must start looking at life through eyes of faith, seeing yourself rising to new levels. It takes faith, which the Bible teaches is needed to save our souls and using it to obtain the world’s goods and make ourselves prosperous and wealthy.
25  He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. Jesus took on the punishment we were supposed to so that we could have a chance to live in Heaven and not go to Hell.
The focus of Christ’s message, in context, was on eternal life, not the short, present life. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. Christians are to base their truth on the Word of God, which is the Bible and not the ideas and feelings generated by these Pastors who seduce their flock with promises of wealth and success. Pray for these pastors to repent and for the truth of the Bible to shine in the hearts and minds of those who so willingly follow and support these corrupt ministries. In fact, the book of Job ends with Job being blessed by God with much more wealth than he originally had lost.  As Jesus taught, God knows that we have physical needs that have to be met every day and will provide for us according to His Will. This kind of faith, in God’s eternal blessings and riches, is what helped Job stay so faithful during the worst times of his life when he lost everything.
He himself obviously preaches Jesus in his church and claims Jesus as Lord and the only way for himself. Before you know it, this world system will be replaced with an eternal world system with Christ ruling and reigning. 16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he even indicates that people he has met in India who are not Christians are going to Heaven as well. What if it is God’s will that a star professional football player, set to make millions in the prime of his career, retire early to start spreading the Gospel as a pastor? In his zeal as an enemy of Christians, Paul persecuted the church, tracking down Christians and having them arrested and sometimes sentenced to death for their faith.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. This is dangerous teaching because it not only leads people away from repentance and truly living for God, it can also enter the world of the occult. Or is it something deeper?… Do you believe that you deserve this life you have imagined? In fact, Satan was permitted to do this because Satan believed that Job only had faith in God because of the material wealth he was blessed with and that if he lost it, Job would then lose all faith in God.
He has made millions upon millions from his book deals, TV shows and of course, speaking appearances. He is trying to preach a new revelation about the Kingdom, that he says most people have not even known about. It is what kept him from cursing God even when his wife was finally fed up with the whole situation and encouraged him to. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. I think he was avoiding being roped into condemning someone’s soul at the behest of the talk show host; wrong spirit there anyone?

I guarantee you once you pass from this world system you will NEVER ever experience pain and suffering again. Jesus say,but seek first the kingdom of God and his rightiousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
At the heart of it, it is commanding God to provide a material blessing as if it is the individual who has power over the universe, fate and even God.
In becoming a Christian, believers are to surrender their sinful desires and worldly lusts to let the desires of Jesus and His righteousness fill us up. No, he said He was going to show Paul from the onset the great things that he would suffer in the name of Jesus.
Unfortunately, this principle works as strongly in the negative as it does in the positive” (p.
And his millions of fans are so content that they see no issue with a Pastor charing as much as $147 per seat at a church service! Munroe completely takes this verse out of context to make it say the exact opposite of what Jesus meant. And his Gospel of the Kingdom has nothing to do with the blood of Christ, which was shed as a payment to have the sins of humanity forgiven. Thus he has to infiltrate it with false prophets and false teaching to mislead churchgoers from focusing on God’s message and putting their minds and hearts on their own desires and way they want to live their lives.
Most of the article about Osteen is quotes from witches blogs that show similarity in the power of the spoken word. Christian do not seek graitication of the flesh through esoteric religious practices and philosphies of men,we seek God and his rigtheousness. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. Jesus Christ was preparing to speak to Paul directly to witness to Him that He was real and alive and give Paul a new mission: to become a Christian and spread the Gospel. Because when he was weak and crying out to God, he became strong through Jesus lifting him back up. 20But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? In order to help Paul get started, Jesus called upon one of the early apostles to go meet Paul on his way to Damascus (where he would be converted to Christianity). The prosperity Gospel goes against this by making worldly prosperity guaranteed and just a matter of increasing faith to receive it. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. By putting so much emphasis on the cares of the world today they not only distort the message of the Bible they ultimately deny Jesus Christ Himself.
Many of us are carrying guilt from years past, or a deep-seated feeling that we are not worthy of anything good. 29  The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. I have not read every word Joel has printed and I will concede there may be a fine line between speaking faith from a heart full of the Holy Spirit according to the Bible promises and what is witchcraft. Paul states, or do you know that as many of us were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death Rom 6:3.
The two can look the same and only God is the judge of our hearts and we can judge the fruit.
We have died to the law of sin and death to live according to the law of the spirit Rom 8:1-17.
From my personal experiences with Joel Osteen’s ministry, I have had nothing but supernatural divine intervention and words from the Lord in miraculous timing and ways via the tv and internet on several occasions. Therefore, we voluntarily make ourselves slaves of rightiousness no longer slaves of sin Rom 6:15-23. I was continually seeking the Lord for the root of my illness and hidden sin in my heart, but that didn’t give me strength to fight the daily pain and fatigue.
Perhaps he is trying to win souls for the kingdom by being all things to all men as the apostle Paul said. I would guess that in his book about declaring the promises he says the promises from the Bible and the scripture references.
You know, I don’t mention the name of Jesus to my family all the time, but they are getting saved, anyway. All I can see for his particular case, myself, is that people are nit picking the way he is trying to reach the world. We have had a lot of mean spirited religious men in our country spouting the scriptures with hatred and anger. They are God’s servants and to Him they will stand or fall and He is able to make them stand.
We must expose false preachers and wolves in sheep’s clothing, but we must also lift up our brothers and sisters in the Lord and use Biblical means to bring Godly correction in love.
There are eye witness accounts of his using prostitutes and drugs; shunning spirit filled Christians at his meetings and embracing the catholic church while claiming to be charismatic. Yes, there is a false prosperity gospel that leaves Jesus out of the whole speaking process and there are ministries with some mixture, but if all you have on Joel is that he didn’t say the name of Jesus on Oprah, you are gonna have to do better than that.
