  • I'd like to see any one of you get up in front of that church and speak for 20 minutes....you'd be rambling too. The guy is not perfect but with all that fame its sure to mess with anyone. He actually seems to be doing well. Let's not forget how cocky and different he was when he 1st came out...its his personality. Its so easy to just label him crazy so you feel better about yourself.

"Christian" men whom are not completely sold out and ALL in for Yahweh God! for if their money and devious influence was taken away, you would certainly see how they're rooted! the majority if not ALL, would curse God and die. for it's the worldy vanities that's truly their god! dear one's... false doctrine, great deception, and last day's apostasy is very real and growing by the day. be NOT conformed nor fooled! 2 Timothy 3: 1 John 4: Romans 1:

  • Kanye is issuing in the anti christ... the beautiful angel in heavenly choir was cast out because he wanted to control the choir because his voice was beautiful... now with the girl screaming chick-fli-a ...vs Popeyes these are symbols of what’s going on and when Kanye West song say his name and switching it from Destiny child which is worldly....God say my spirit will know my spirit... just because Kanye is saying Jesus don’t mean he is calling the Jesus but his Jesus of his God this man has told you he has sold his soul to the goat so anti christ will come and many will follow just because he say Jesus please study the word to know the devil is crafty and Kanye West has been under MK Ultra .... this is a sad starting a church to what God is he really speaking of? This is crazy but some Christian go by what sounds good to the ears instead of looking at the stage of what is going on with this shift yes it’s a shift but be careful of what shift because the true God shifts and will uncover you the devil comes to steal kill and destroy pray and ask The true God to open your eyes 👀

  • Joel osteen is nothing but a false Prosperity teacher.. If you can't go to third world countries where they lost everything and prech that junk it's not the gospel. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; II Timothy 4:3 NKJV

  • Sounds like a major deception. A man who preaches about prosperity, your best life...and we got kanye west who uses the name of Jesus Christ for the sake of exalting himself. Their is no preaching of repentance. Our nation is full of sin. Everyone is clapping for kanye west, instead of hitting their knees and asking God for forgiveness. Something is definitely wrong. Wolves in sheep's clothing. Beware. Much love, brother Charles. Watching from Southern California. 😎

    • That was specific to that particular man. Job 1:1‭, ‬3 NKJV "There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. Also, his possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very large household, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the East." Job was not just a priest but he was also the richest man in the East. Genesis 26:12‭-‬14 NLT "When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the Lord blessed him. He became a very rich man, and his wealth continued to grow. He acquired so many flocks of sheep and goats, herds of cattle, and servants that the Philistines became jealous of him." God is not against his servants and children being rich, if that was the case He would not have caused Job to be so rich that he was the richest man in all of the East or blessed Isaac so much that he became so rich the Philistines became jealous of his wealth. Jesus was adressing that particular man about his heart and his love for Him. God was going to restore his wealth back to him like He did to Job. Job 42:10‭, ‬12‭-‬13 NLT "When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before! So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. For now he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. He also gave Job seven more sons and three more daughters." After Job lost everything because of the devil, God restored to him everything he had lost and He made Job every richer than he was before. This idea that God is against His children and servants being rich IS NOT SCRIPTURAL! Proverbs 10:22 ESV "The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it." 2 Corinthians 8:9 NLT "You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich." This is cannot be referring to spiritual poverty. Jesus Christ is God Almighty in human flesh, He was not spiritual poor. This is referring to financial riches. 3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." God's biggest wish for me according to the Bible is for me to prosper, yes this includes being rich, to live in health and to prosper spiritually. It's in the Bible. Satan has deceived many in Christ into believing that God against His children being rich and as a result many grow up believing that it is the devil who makes people rich. This is a lie by the devil! This is a testimony satan gave about God concerning Job. Job 1:9‭-‬10 NLT "Satan replied to the Lord, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God. You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is!" God makes His children rich! The principles to be rich are in the Bible. Many of the richest people in the world apply these very principles in their lives and they have become rich as a result but sadly Christians remain poor because satan has deceived them into believing that being rich is evil. This is God teaching on investment Ecclesiastes 11:1‭-‬2 GNT "Invest your money in foreign trade, and one of these days you will make a profit. Put your investments in several places-many places even-because you never know what kind of bad luck you are going to have in this world." The Bible is full of this kind of God's wisdom and many Christians are just not taking advantage of God's wisdom but they are quick to vilify and demonised any Christian who becomes rich by obeying and applying what God teaches in His Word.

  • When Kanye changes his Sunday service to The biblically-based Seventh-Day Sabbath (Saturday) service which is the day that God rested, set apart and sanctified at the end of creation week, then he will be showing true obedience to the Creator. Kanye, hopefully unknowingly has become a puppet for the Vatican and the evangelicals by helping to usher in a "New World Order" global religion and false Christian revival that at this time is fomenting a national and international Sunday Law. Those who violate it will incur, believe it or not, the death penalty. This is clearly prophesied in the book of Revelation. Kanye's song "Closed on Sunday" is very telling. Sadly Kanye's super pride and ego are still intact and his unwillingness so far to publicly confess and repent of his highly blasphemous actions of the past are also very telling.
