False Bishop T.D. Jakes
“Then was Nebucahdnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: Therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated” - (Dan.3:19).
Bishop Thomas Dexter ‘T.D.’ Jakes is the CEO and chief pastor of ‘The Potter’s House,’ a 30,000 member megachurch in Dallas, TX. His church services and sermons are broadcast on the Trinity Broadcasting Network and the World Network. Jakes is also a prolific author and has written 30 books, many on the best-selling lists. He’s also a songwriter, a playwright, and performer. He founded a Christian record label as well as a theatre and movie production company.
Jakes preaches a ‘Prosperity Theology’ which teaches that God rewards his followers with material things. As such, Jakes is unapologetic in amassing expensive clothes, luxury cars, and property. His detractors, however, argue that Jesus and the early church did not preach or practice this heresy. Jakes has received many honors, including 13 honorary degrees and doctorates. He has also received Grammy and Dove award nominations for his gospel albums. He was named one of the top 10 religious leaders. Time magazine featured him on the cover of its Sept.17, 2001 issue with the question “Is this man the next Billy Graham?” On Jan. 20, 2009, he preached a private church service in the morning at St. John’s Episcopal Church, across from the White House for Obama and his wife only, and later that day Obama was sworn in as president. Jakes said, “Jesus was a rich man. He had to have been in order to have supported his disciples and their families during his ministry. The myth of the poor Jesus needs to be destroyed, because it’s holding people back.”
His text vs. that day was (Dan.3:19) and he used it for four lessons for Obama. (Dan.3) is about God’s three faithful men who were thrown into the fiery furnace because they refused to bow to Nebuchandezzar’s image. The four lessons are:
1 - “In time of crisis, good men must stand up. God always sends the best of men into the worst times.”
2 - “You cannot change what you will not confront. This is a moment of confrontation in this country. There’s no way around it... This is not a time for politeness or correctness, this is a time for people to confront issues and bring about change.”
3 - “You cannot enjoy the light without enduring the heat. The reality is the more brilliant, the more glorious. The more essential the light, the more intense the heat. We cannot separate one from another.”
4 - “Extraordinary times require extraordinary methods...”
And then he looked directly at Obama and said “The problems are mighty and the solutions are not simple, and everywhere you turn there will be a critic waiting to attack every decision that you make. But you are fired up, Sir, and all ready to go. And this nation goes with you. God goes with you. I say to you as my son who is here today, my 14 year old son - he probably would not quote scripture. He probably would use Star Wars instead, and so I say, “May the force be with you.”
Bishop T.D. Jakes is a false bishop (2 Cor.11:13-15) - he preaches heresy. A true preacher would match (Dan.3) with (Rev.13) and preach on the Antichrist-Beast of whom Emperor Nebuchadnezzar was the best O.T. type. And he would preach on the mark of the beast and worshiping the image of the Beast under penalty of death, which is what (Dan.3) is all about. “... That as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” - (Rev.13:15).
The qualification for a true bishop is “For a bishop must be… not given to filthy lucre” – (Tit.1:7). The next verse describes false bishop T.D. Jakes perfectly – “Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake” – (Tit.1:11).
God is showing us to watch Obama closely in these end times as he may very well be the Antichrist and that’s why God brought this about on the very day President Obama begins his reign. It is the Lord Jesus who will throw the Beast into the fiery furnace alive - “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet... These both were cast alive into a lake of fire with brimstone” - (Rev.19:20).
Time is short and the hour late. Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in Christ. Jesus said - “Ye must be born again” - (Jn.3:9). Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. If you spurn God’s grace and love in His beloved Son on the cross, the wrath of God abides on you and you will spend eternity in the lake of fire with the Devil. “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” - (Rev.20:15).
Is your name written there?
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on him” - (Jn.3:36).
