Rick Warren Teaching The Storehouse Tithing Heresy To Christians

When you get to the end of Rick Warren’s video and he is telling his congregation that “people won’t be in Heaven because you didn’t tithe 10% of your income” for 36 months, well that’s not only nonsense, and unbiblical, it’s a blatant attempt to extort his people into giving.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The “Storehouse Tithing” heresy is nothing more than bondage, Jesus came to set you free

In his May 17th, 2015 morning church service, Rick Warren put the shackles of bondage firmly around his congregation and proceeded to assault them with a devilish mixture of intimidation, scripture twisting and begging for them to “tithe” 10 percent of their weekly incomes to him for the next three years. Yeah, just let that sink in for just a moment. Mad yet? If you’re not, then you don’t know your Bible.

“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 (KJV)

Rick Warren’s main verse for this heresy is found in Malachi 3:8-10 where we read the following:

“Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” Malachi 3:8-10 (KJV)

Now that all sounds well and good, and certainly there is a spiritual application for the Christian Church, but as doctrine this is not a command to Christians living in the age of Grace. Paul, our apostle, never once gave this command to any Christian. Paul’s command is found at the top of this article. The verses in Malachi were written to Jews under the Law of Moses, and as such do not apply to us.

Leaving Malachi, Warren then proceeds to the New Testament where Jesus is giving commands to the Jews in the Sermon on the Mount. Again, these are not doctrinal verses for the Christian Church. The people in Matthew 6 were waiting on a Kingdom on earth, and a King. The Christian is waiting for neither of those. We are a Bride awaiting the call of our Husband to bring us to Heaven for the Marriage Supper. Huge difference. God wrote the Bible dispensationally, and rightly dividing your Bible quickly clears all these things up. Rightly dividing also a command to the Christian from Paul found in 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV).

Yes, all churches and ministries need money to operate. NTEB is no different. It costs us over $20,000 a year to bring the ministry to you, and if people didn’t give and if we didn’t run ads we couldn’t keep doing it. But when you get to the end of Warren’s video and he is telling his congregation that “people won’t be in Heaven because you didn’t tithe 10% of your income” for 36 months, well that’s not only nonsense, and unbiblical, it’s a blatant attempt to extort his people into giving. God doesn’t need any of us to get anything done. Yes, He is pleased to use us but we are not required. And no one will “miss Heaven” because someone didn’t put money in the offering plate. That’s a lie, but sadly in the bible-deficient age we live in people keep falling for it over and over and over again.

If you attend a good, Bible believing church, then give them whatever is in your heart to give. Be generous with the money God has given you. But don’t ever give to any person, church or ministry that threatens you with spiritual blackmail if you don’t give. No church that God wanted open has ever closed because of a lack of giving, and never will.

If you really want to give something of value, give your time. Go to the streets on a beautiful Saturday when you could be at the beach and hand out gospel tracts. Volunteer at a homeless shelter, go sing in a nursing home for the old and the sick, offer to clean the bathrooms at your church. Give something that costs you something. Anyone can give money. Jesus never had any money, He gave Himself.

Go thou and do likewise….

Our brand new NTEB ‘Wall Witness’ Poster Series will get your end times motor running with these sure-fire conversation starters!

When our Mudflower team produced the original ‘days of Noah’ graphic for use in the bookstore as a display background for our ‘Angels & Aliens’ collection from end times author Jeffrey Mardis, people immediately started asking if we could make it available as a poster. Now that was a great idea, and hey, why stop with just one? Presenting the NTEB Wall Witness Poster Series that will remind you and your born again friends of the precious promises of God, and get the lost people in your life thinking about what’s coming to pass shortly.

“For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” Luke 21:22 (KJB)

We designed three posters that we are selling individually, and as a set with a discount. The first is the classic OG NTEB chaotic end times depiction from our Street Preacher gospel tracts, a design recognized around the world. The second is Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines, our ‘blessed hope’ of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. And the third one is the menacing Days of Noah giant in a boiling sea as UFOs swirl all around. Total visual impact. We are excited to present them to you, and dearly hope you will use them to witness in your home, at work, or wherever you can hang a poster.

Witnesses To The Massive 7.8 Earthquake In Turkey Remarked That ‘It Was Like The Apocalypse’ As Death Toll Now Passes 3,700 Souls And Rising

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A huge earthquake in Turkey and Syria registering 7.8 on the Richter Scale has already killed 3,700 souls, injuring countless thousands more, was like ‘watching the apocalypse’.

This week is off to a gangbusters start from a prophecy perspective, with a once in a generation earthquake rocking Turkey and Syria, open worship of Satan at the Grammys sponsored by Pfizer, as well as minor earthquakes in New York and Georgia. Russia is preparing to unleash a 500,000 soldier contingent on Ukraine, and Chinese spy balloons fly over America with impunity. Things get much hotter and it might be time for a little ’23 skidoo’, and wouldn’t that be great? In the meantime, here we are at the beginning of sorrows.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8 (KJB)

One of the missionaries on our prayer list is LuAnn from Sarasota who ministers to the Muslims in Turkey. She reported this morning that “Yes thank God I’m all right.  I’m living in Istanbul and this horrendous earthquake happened in the southeast of Turkey a few hours away from me. But it is turning into quite a disaster for the nation.  Thank you for your prayers and your concern. We have been told to restock our “earthquake bag” in case we too become affected. We just learned Pastor Hakan and his wife in Anitoch went to be with the Lord , leaving behind a young son. We have so few Turkish Pastors. Tragic” Please continue to pray for LuAnn and her efforts in Turkey, that the Lord would continue to keep her safe and give her and her team much fruit for His Kingdom. And pray for the untold tens of thousands of souls devastated by this earthquake.

Major earthquake kills 3,700 in Turkey and Syria, weather hits survivors

FROM YAHOO NEWS: A huge earthquake killed more than 3,700 people across a swathe of Turkey and northwest Syria on Monday, with freezing winter weather adding to the plight of the thousands left injured or homeless and hampering efforts to find survivors.

The magnitude 7.8 quake brought down whole apartment blocks in Turkish cities and piled more devastation on millions of Syrians displaced by years of war. It struck before sunrise in harsh weather and was followed in the early afternoon by another large quake.

In Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey, a woman speaking next to the wreckage of the seven-storey block where she lived said: “We were shaken like a cradle. There were nine of us at home. Two sons of mine are still in the rubble, I’m waiting for them.” She was nursing a broken arm and had injuries to her face.

“It was like the apocalypse,” said Abdul Salam al-Mahmoud, a Syrian in the northern town of Atareb. “It’s bitterly cold and there’s heavy rain, and people need saving.”

The earthquake was the biggest recorded worldwide by the U.S. Geological Survey since a tremor in the remote South Atlantic in August 2021.

In Turkey, the death toll stood at 2,316, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said, making it the country’s deadliest earthquake since a tremor of similar magnitude in 1999 devastated the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed over 2,300 people in Turkey and Syria early Monday morning. The ‘apocalypse’ quake occurred early in the morning when most people were sleeping or indoors.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Last night, the 2023 Grammys in 5 minutes showed you graphically how close to the end we truly are. Satan, brought to you by Pfizer. Just like we’ve been telling you.

If you were looking for a theme song wrapped in an iconic moment to truly symbolize what it means to be here on Day 1,057 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, the 2023 Grammys last night was just the ticket. You had LGBTQ+ transgenders, Satan, women in cages being beaten with whips, all while singing a song called ‘Unholy’. And if that wasn’t enough, the moment this demonic mess was done, they cut to a ‘brought to you by Pfizer’ promo, tying the two in nice and neatly together. There is nothing more you need to know about the Great Reset, the pandemic, gain of function and all the rest of that junk than that. But don’t take my word for it, watch the video below and see for yourself.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32 (KJB)

In 5 minutes last night, the Grammys showed you a visual production of just about everything we’ve been warning you about since it all began. How many times have you heard me tell you on the Podcast about the ‘rising spirit of Antichrist’? It rose over the Grammys last night, and broadcast to a hundred million people. How many times have you heard me expose the evils of Pfizer and Big Pharma? Pfizer sponsored that satanic moment. People, if you can’t see where we are on the end times timeline by now, if you can’t see that everything we’ve been warning you about is happening right in front of your face, then I don’t know what to tell you. Obviously we will be discussing this in detail on the Podcast today so please join us. Like we’ve always said NTEB’ers are some of the most well-informed people on the face of the earth regarding the end times, and last night the 2023 Grammys proved that…TO THE FIGHT!!!

2023 Grammys Go ‘Full Satan’ With Performance Of ‘Unholy’

FROM VARIETY: Sam Smith just outdid their recent “Saturday Night Live” performance with “Unholy” collaborator Kim Petras in a horror movie-inspired performance of the smash hit. Smith started the song in red leather, surround a fleet of dancers that evoked Samara from “The Ring,” before cutting to Petras dancing in a cage, flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear. Smith also donned a satanic top hat, as huge flames heated up the stage.

Smith and Petras won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance earlier in the evening, and Petras gave an emotional speech.

“Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I’m the first transgender woman to win this award,” she said, to cheers and many of the musicians in the crowd giving her a standing ovation. “I just wan to thank all of the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open before me so I could be here tonight. Sophie, my friend who passed away two years ago, who told me this would happen and always believed in me. Thank you so much for you inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music.”

When asked about the fiery performance backstage, Petras said it was inspired by not feeling accepted by religion.

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” she said. “So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live, because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.” READ MORE
