The global financial recession has had it's impact on every economy around the world. There is probably no developed country that has escaped the impact of sinking monetary values, market instability and just abysmal returns on equity. One would not readily relate an earthquake to a financial recession, but as Pat Robertson relates the Haitian earthquake to an agreement to buy freedom at almost any cost over 200 years ago, we have other "Profits" that are also offering their strange, weird and ongoing, "greasy-spoon" interpretations and revelations of what God did (which is a false assumption) and why he's doing it.
When God Needs A Lender
Real quickly all it takes is for those planning to celebrate Passover, to "believe God" on the day after Passover. In fact if you follow the directions that Pastor Munsey lays out, you can expect at least 7 supernatural blessings. The video below outlines them but I'll outline them here as follows:
1- An Angel will be dispatched on your behalf2- God will be an enemy to your enemies3- Spirit of prosperity present4- Sickness taken away from you5-Long life6-Increase and inheritance in your life7- Special year of blessing
As you'll notice in the video promotion, all one has to do is stand before the Lord on March 30th with an offering (and we suppose give that offering to him or them) and "God will dispatch that angel and those 7 blessings will take place."
Here's the video regarding the book just in case you find this a little unbelievable:
Well, if you thought that was bad, you ain't heard nothing yet!
Loan God Some Money And He Will Jump-Start The Economy
Now in the world and illegal lender is called (in some circles) "the Juice man". Pastor Munsey believes however that we, the people, have the juice to make God do what we need hi to do for the economy. In a startling revelation on this show (what you didn't see in the video) Pastor Munsey declared that the earthquake in Haiti was about God's plan to jump start the global economy. Yes, you heard it right...the global economy...basing his insights on a legitimate scripture:
Proverbs 19:17~ "He that hath pity upon the poor LENDETH unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again."
Pastor Munsey, said that the tragedy in Haiti was to jump-start the church's and nation's giving to the poor by providing financial support so that the global economy could improve. He said God needed people to just give him a loan, so that they can start to receive his blessings again. Is that right?
Self Centered Blessings???
2 Corinthians 9:7 ~ "Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver."
One thing that's true is that God requests that every man give as he/she has purposed in their hearts. That giving has never been to "get" or receive material in return. There is an element of giving called reaping and sowing, and as indicated the Lord loves the "cheerful" giver, but what we need from God in return for gifts is greater than the monetary or temporal materialisms. In fact what God requires of us to give him is much greater than finances.
Poor people need more than money. In fact all people need much more than that. We need the greatest gift ever given to man, JESUS and from there we need his wisdom, development and spiritual relationship and natural sense.
Pastor Munsey receives the Pimpery Extraordinaire Award for his expert and rehearsed charlatanism. I wonder do people like him believe that hell is a reality?
2 Peter 3:3 ~ "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,"
The church needs to be served in a much better manner than this and it is a shame that charlatans such as this continue to have an audience. Lord help your people!
