Does your church sell anointing oil

Most Pentecostal churches are known for the practise of selling anointing oil in the Church; and the fact that this has become popular with all Pentecostal churches makes it is difficult to convince people that such practise is both unscriptural and wicked. But we believe the truth will always find reception in a heart that has been renewed by the Holy Ghost; and like the Apostle Paul, in all our preaching, we do not labour to have all men saved, rather, we endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory (2 Tim 2:10).

A church that sells the anointing oil is no longer a church but a business centre, and that is exactly what many Pentecostal churches have become – a business centre.

In Matthew 21:21-22, we read that “Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold Continue reading

Why do many use the anointing oil

  1. 1. Because men’s hearts are naturally inclined to idolatry and superstitions.
  2. Because idolatry practised in the name of Christianity easily commends itself to the taste of all men.
  3. Because natural faith, which is the faith common to all men, seeks something on which it can lean upon: something that the natural eyes can see; whereas, special faith, which is the faith of God’s elect (Titus 1:1), seeks nothing to lean upon which is perceptible to the natural eyes; the faith of natural men walk by sight, but the faith of God’s elect does not walk by sight.
  4. Because lies told in the name of Bible Christianity is easily received for truth and hard to detect.
  5. Because God promised to blind men and rewire them to believe a lie that they might be damned, seeing they received not the love of the truth (2 Thess 2:11-12).
  6. Because God promised to give men over to their own heart’s lusts (Psa 81:12).
  7. Because Satan loves to imitate the truth; the Apostles used the anointing oil to heal the sick in Mark 6:13, and Satan wants seeks to imitate the same.
  8. Because we live in the perilous times of the lasts days when men shall prefer fables to sound doctrine, and carnal worshippers shall seek out false, effeminate, seeker-sensitive, teachers to scratch their itching ears (2 Tim 4:3-4).
  9. Because Satan, through the prosperity gospel of the Pentecostals and Charismatics, have preoccupied men with the care of the state of their body, while they never care about the state of the souls.
  10. Because men love magic, and would readily receive it if it is now practised in the name of the Bible and in the name of Jesus Christ.
  11. Because men count the longsuffering of God as slackness and delay (2 Pet 3:9)
  12. Because Pentecostals and Charismatics think the Holy Ghost is contained in the bottle of the anointing oil, just as the Pope and his groupies think the body, soul, and divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ are contained in the bread and wine of the communion.
  13. Because broad is the way that leadeth to destruction and many there be that go in thereat; but strait is the gate and narrow is the way that leadeth to life, and few there be that find it Matt 7:13-14).

Something better than the anointing oil

It is the way of the natural man to neglect the best of the gifts of God to settle for the least, and even believers tend to do this since they still carry their depraved nature in them. This seems to be the case of the Corinthian church; they were settling for the gifts of tongues, which was by far the least of the spiritual gifts, hence Paul told them: “But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way” (1 Cor 12:31).

In our time there seems to be more and more men settling down for the use of the anointing oil, which is by far an outdated gift, and also very irrelevant to the saints today. God has given us something far better and superior than the anointing oil. We are not left as orphans in this world, nor have we been left defenceless in our war against sin, the flesh and the world. This article will show that God has given to his saints something better than the anointing oil.

While the Lord Jesus Christ tabernacled in the flesh among us, his disciples were never perplexed nor troubled; the thought of their vulnerability to the powers of darkness never entered into their hearts because they found a sure refuge in him. In Matthew 14:23-33 they witnessed him walk over the water and rescue them from the boisterious storm; in Mark 4:37-41 they witnessed him rebuke the wind and the sea and they yielded perfect obedience to him, such that they said with their own mouth, “What manner of man is this, that Continue reading

What Is This Beggar Doing At The Door?

A “jesus” or a “saviour” seeking your decision and permission before he saves you is the most ridiculous lie and delusion the corrupt mind of fallen man ever came up with.

Will you sell your eternal destiny to this beggarly, effeminate hippie, who begs decisions  and sinner’s prayers from door to door; or will you trust the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, which saved all for whom it was wrought?

Salvation must be by the work of Christ Alone, by His decision alone, and by his choice alone; without that, Grace is corrupted, and the sinner becomes his own Saviour.

Matthew 1:21: “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

Provoking Questions

“And she shall bring forth a son”: Did Mary bring forth a Son? Yes!

“And thou shalt call his name JESUS”: Was His named called JESUS? Yes!

“For he shall save his people from their sins”: Did He save His people from their sin? Hmmm…(Here is the heart of the Gospel, and this is why many show openly that they don’t believe the truth as stated in Matthew 1:21, concerning what Christ would accomplish by His death on the cross).

We who have come out of the Pentecostal Religion believe with all our heart that Mary had a Son named Jesus, and that He saved ALL His people from their sins!

There are three “shall” in Matthew 1:21.

“And she <<SHALL>> bring forth a son, and thou <<SHALT>> call his name JESUS: for he <<SHALL>> save his people from their sins.”

The last “shall” is no less certain than the first two! Get it!

Which Comes First? Christ or Antichrist?

II Thessalonians 2:

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Paul’s Order of Events by Holy Spirit Inspiration

1. A falling away from the true gospel.

2. Antichrist, the Man of Sin, revealed.

3. Jesus Christ’s Second Coming for His saints.

Tongues have Ceased

Copied from http://www.letgodbetrue.com/bible/heresies/tongues.php –  used here with permission.


 

“Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.”
I Corinthians 13:8

“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”
II Corinthians 11:4

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
II Corinthians 11:13-15

The obsession of Charismatics and Pentecostals to speak in tongues is the devil’s lie to deceive and destroy some sincere saints; replace sound doctrine and Bible preaching with entertainment, fables, and showmanship; and to disgrace the gospel of Jesus Christ. Modern speaking in tongues cannot be separated from the widespread healing frauds, laughing revivals, slaying in the Spirit, money begging, dog barking, drunk in the spirit, and other profane practices of the same parties. The leading ministers and churches of this movement are totally different from apostolic religion in doctrine and practice. This simple study will show once and for all that speaking in tongues had ended by 70 A.D.
