A long time Elder of the Mega-church, "The Potter's House" was escorted out of the building by security for writing a tell-all book entitled: “The Sunday Morning Stick Up: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes.”. The title alone really causes you to raise an eyebrow and make you wonder what is in this tell-all reviling book that exposes Pimp preachers like T.D.(Snake) Jakes.
Many of these Mega-churches are pulling in nearly over 4 million in a weekend. One church, the Reverend Dollar’s World Changers, reported $69 million in 2006 income, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Do you really think T.D. Jakes cares for the people at all? Hell-2-the NO!!!
Because of the wickedness of the rebelliousness and hard hearts of the people the Most High is letting the people be fooled and tricked. In Isaiah 66:4 the Most High says He will choose their delusions and this one is very heavy on the people of Israel as they defend these wick preachers and support them with thier hard earned dollars.
I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose [that] in which I delighted not.
Scandal Media: has also learned that Jakes is charging ministers/elders of his church $1,100 to attend a conference for two days so he can “pour into their lives.” Also, many of the ministers and elders don’t have the money to attend, and are taking out Payday Loans, and getting into debt just to be in the number and attend his events. Many of his ministers have fell on hard times in the past, and asked the church for help and the answer has been “No.”
According to another friend who is a former staff member of The Potter’s House, Jakes charges any where from $50,000 to $100,000 to come preach at other churches. Half of the money is due up front, and then you must agree to give Jakes 50% of the offering raised that night. T.D.Jakes also demands a luxury hotel room, meals, and your church must be a certain size before he even agrees to preach and visits with you.
Elder Richardson says "Jakes has never been about the business of winning souls for Christ, but about making his pockets fatter. Anybody that’s in Jakes inner circle should never try to educate folks about tithe because you will be excoriated and jettisoned from his inner circle. People in these churches forget the love of God is free, and needs to start thinking for themselves."
Elder Richardson will make it plain about why the Most High has turned his back on the Israelites but does not know that we are those very people He has turned on because of our breaking of the law.
"How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? -If you had responded to My rebuke, I would have poured out My heart to you and made My thoughts known to you. -But since you rejected Me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out My hand,-since you ignored all My advice and would not accept My rebuke,-I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you--when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.-"Then they will call to Me but I will not answer; they will look for Me but will not find Me.-Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Most High,-They would none of My counsel: they despised all My reproof. -Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.-For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
Isaiah 56:10-11 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. 11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
This still is the case today with these pimp preachers. Hermeneutics has no place in the teaching of the Most High's law. These preachers lack the wisdom and knowledge to lead the children of Israel. They themselves are lost and are in wickedness.
