Holy Heavenly Father,
The televangelist who claims in the name of Jesus God told him to tell you to send him $3,000 is Antichrist.
I believe we should support our local church, many of the small churches barely pay the bills. You know I love you but I am concerned about some of the televangelists. It was the middle of the night, I couldn’t sleep so I turned the TV on . This preacher said,” Don’t turn that channel. I am talking to you.”
I said,”Are you talking to me?”
He said,”Yes, I am talking to you.”
I was immediately wide awake!
Maybe it is possible God, you have some kind of message for me. After all I couldn’t sleep. I have never had an angel or someone give me one of those special messages.
So I am curious and didn’t turn the channel.
“God is talking to you this very minute., he went on. He is talking to 3,000 people. He said 3,000 people tonight are going to send $3,000 each to this ministry. When God speaks you had better obey him” He told the story of Jonah and the whale. Jonah didn’t obey God and he was thrown into a whale.
I knew God you weren’t talking to me. I had barely enough for groceries, my small disability check just made it month to month.
He went on and said, ” God curses people who don’t listen to him. If you have to borrow the money , it is better to owe the bank than to disobey God.”
I know this wasn’t from you because you said not to owe any man money. The bank would tell me to drop dead or call a mental l hospital.
He told about all his blessings from obeying God. He gave a $1,000 offering to another ministry and one of his friends called him and said, “Brother ,God told me to take you shopping and buy you a whole wardrobe of clothes. He went and bought the minister the best suits, “They weren’t cheap, he said, they were Brooks Brothers Suits. “A week or so later, another friend, called and said, “God told me to buy you a new car!” He came over and gave him the keys to a BMW. Another friend called and took him suit shopping, again. His closet was full of suits. Someone gave him a Rolex watch and he told of many more presents he received.
I have a $30.00 Elgin watch and it is really pretty. I do know , if you gave me $3,000 you would expect me to use that money wisely. You would expect me to buy a better car than this $200.00 one I have. It has a broken windshield, no air conditioner, no motor for the windshield wipers and it is a little beat up. It runs just fine. This car is a blessing. Thank you Father.
I couldn’t borrow a penny from the bank. How could I pay it back? I wondered if there were were a lot of elderly women like me who had a small check to live on and sent this man $3,000. This made me sick. It is worse kind of abuse in the name of Jesus Christ. This same program has aired many times. Many different preachers with this same story.
I go to Thrift Shops and buy silk blouses and really expensive Macy’s suits , at very cheap prices. I buy expensive purses, scarves, shoes, accessories. I buy the best of everything at very low prices.I know the named brands. I dress classy. I do not have any diamonds but I don’t need them. I have a lot of colorful costume jewelry. Thank you, Father for your precious wisdom.
