Another Gospel


There are countless regions of the world to pray for both believer and non believer. The nation of Kenya is one of these such places. In speaking to brethren over there whom I have contact with things are not good. Famine is growing and people are dying all around. Much of the famine in Kenya as well as the other African nations is due to the arid conditions and changing weather patterns. But much of it is also due to the thievery of billions of dollars of hard currency and food aid sent to these African nations. For it is not a secret that the corruption in many of these nations is the way of doing business.

I will go even farther than using the world thievery for in fact the cause of many of Africa’s ills are due to sin. Sin that is not a problem for the white man alone, he who is portrayed in today’s world as being the cause of all the world’s ills; no, sin that is a problem also for the black man in Africa. Because sin is common to all of mankind whether he be black or white or any other color. This truth of course runs contrary to the deceptions of the academics and pundits who blame the white man as the fountainhead for all of the world’s woes.

This I declare is far from the truth because sin is universal to mankind and whatever color a person’s skin is, they are a sinner with those in Africa being no exception. Here, so many African leaders have the blood of millions of their countrymen and women at their hands due to their abject greed and stealing of billions of dollars of aid sent to these nations. The things that could have been done with those monies to build up infrastructure, teach the people how to farm, how to irrigate, to dig wells, etc. boggles the mind. But the love of money, which is the root of all evil, held sway. Now, you have countless African leaders who live like kings even as their own countrymen die all around them because they did not distribute the funds sent to help these people.

Be it known to all these that the day of judgment is coming whereby these African leaders will be raised to life from the dead to stand before the Lord of Glory to give an account of all of their sins. Yet it is not only the rich corrupt leaders who will be judged by God; rather, it will be all who reject the gospel in this life and choose to live instead in their sin. Because I will also state that just as sin is not a white-man’s disease, so too sin is not limited only to rich people or corrupt leaders.

But be of good cheer because today salvation is offered to you whether you be rich or poor. For Africa I do not believe will change unless she repents and turns to the living God and forsakes all of her idols and false gods. And that many of these corrupt and wicked leaders will have their hearts crushed by the power of God’s words and will repent of their thievery even as Zacchaeus did.

And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for today I must abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. (Luke 19:1-10)

I call on all Christians to pray for Africa and her people. Pray that God might grant them rains for their crops. Pray that he might soften the hearts of her leaders where many will turn to the Lord and repent of their evil. Pray that God will raise up more of the local people who know the Lord and believe his word to go forth and spread the gospel far and wide and that many will come to believe. Not to believe the false gospel from the fat-bellied American preachers who preach their false prosperity gospel, but rather to believe the simple truths found in God’s word.

Likewise, I call all of my African brethren to turn away from these greedy American preachers which includes Morris Cerullo, Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, Reinhard Bonke, Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, and many others. Burn their books and do not give them another cent of your money. Do not go to their crusades for they are shams meant to deceive you, to steal your money and to keep you from the truth of God’s word. Turn to God’s word and trust only those who preach the simple truths from the Scriptures. Those who come to give you all of God’s word which includes the easy truths to hear, and the hard truths. Because those who preach that you will get rich or healthy through the gospel are lying to you because the call of Jesus is to a hard and difficult life whereby we take up our cross daily.

“And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.” (Luke 9:23-26)

In closing, I pray God is glorified in all things in Africa and that my brethren will be strong in their times of great adversity.

Much I would love to write on the subject of the true gospel but time right now fails me so this will be a short post. My life and coming to Jesus Christ was marked by a mighty deliverance from my belief in a false gospel to a unwavering belief on the true. A gospel that had no power in my life to change me or make me a new creature. Instead, what I had was dead religion; this most notably being that of Roman Catholicism. A religion that left me no different from the heathen next door as my life bore ample witness to the fact I was dead in sins.

How many out there are just like me? How many have believed on a false gospel and are trusting in a work of the flesh and not the authored and finished work of Jesus Christ? How many are blinded by false doctrines and false gospels and are still in bondage to sin? The gospel of Rome is not alone in this camp for the same thing can be found in Mormonism and with the Jehovah Witnesses. All three like peas in a pod who uphold the goodness of man, the ability of man to work his way into heaven, and the belief that faith in Jesus Christ alone is not enough for salvation.

And it goes beyond these organizations as we also have preached today in the vast majority of churches is the “gospel” of “ask Jesus into your heart” by praying the “sinner’s prayer.” One that is found preached the world over by the likes of the most famous ministers and churches. One that has become part-and-parcel with the easy-believing generation today where salvation is reduced to answering correctly to a series of questions.

If you would like to get some Scriptural insight into this “another gospel” and how it is just as prevalent in the evangelical church as it is in Rome please check out the latest video by Berean Beacon Ministries found on their Home page. It is entitled “The Invincible Gospel and the Modern Evangelical Lie.” A message more geared to those who profess faith in Jesus Christ to aid them in their ministry and witnessing to others. But one which would profit any who listen who have ears to hear the truth.

I pray that you will be greatly blessed from this message.
