Fingerprints of the Enemy – TPM Niclolaitans (Part 2)

This is with reference to a comment by Brother Nixon in one of our Blog about TPM Competing with Jesus as the Gate to Heaven. Click Here to read the blog and see his question. Brother Nixon’s question is about some references in a TPM Published Book Named “The Tabernacle” where TPM Ministers had to establish their superiority and put down other ministers of God. Another Brother Richard was quite helpful in getting to us the referenced pages. The Consecrated Ministry of TPM is a one size fit all model that they employ. I would like to say that it is a very stinking disease in TPM Ministers to somehow put down other ministries to climb upon their shoulders to show themselves as special people. The Evil Spirit of Pride and oneupmanship is so evident in TPM Ministers that even a blind can see it.  We are thankful to our Brothers for bringing these portions to light. We shall dissect the portions in the next section.

Before we start understanding the base(True Christianity) and how far we have been led by the TPM Nicolaitans, we need to realize that we are severely infected with a deadly problem. The problem is a prophetical fulfillment. Please notice the highlighted section in the below verse.

Acts 20:29-30I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.

Let us now get back to the basics of True Christianity and its Corruption that we see in the present form.

Christianity in the Truest Form

Christ is the Most towering Figure in Christianity. All Christians know about Jesus and True Christianity is ONLY ABOUT JESUS.  All we need is a constant personal relationship with Christ. Jesus Christ has made our life so easy that all that we need to do is point people over to Christ and lead them to the Truth which is readily available in the scriptures.  We all have been endowed with the ability to understand the scriptures and if anyone of us does not understand it, we can, of course, ask the Lord and he will help us.

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

Apart from the simple explanation I mentioned, what else does a Christian Need?

Simple Answer is  “A Loving Fellowship of sincere Christians who love the Lord and is dedicated to walking in the way he leads”. AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

True Christian Fellowship Model

Christian Church is so simple in its structure that any gathering of Two or Three Persons in the Name of Jesus can be defined as “Ekklesia”.  These people are expected to share their spiritual Gifts and Love towards each other and minister to one another. Each one of them is directly connected with the Lord at the same time. There are no connection breakers between them and with the Lord.  Of course one of the most important thing in their fellowship was BREAKING OF BREAD in REMEMBRANCE OF OUR LORD. Is not that very plain and simple?

Acts 2:46-47 “Everyday they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

1 Corinthians 14:26What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.”

Brokerage Houses with Franchise Model

The Church established by Jesus Christ was so simple in its working and structure that it was overflowing with Love and Care. Everybody was led by the Spirit and there were no Human Bosses to boss them over. They were like little children who did not have any deceit within themselves.  The Fruits of Spirit would ooze out from each member of the early “Ekklesia”.

This is the point where Satan threw some of his tares into the wheat farm of the Lord. Matthew 13:25But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.

The Tares are fruitless weeds which have only one Job. They suck the nutrients that are meant for the wheat and stand upright taller than most wheat plants.   They do not have any fruits within themselves but are quick to Boss over the fruit laden ears of wheat.

These tares are the Institutional Churches and its workers that we see today of which TPM is also one. They have set up themselves as brokerage houses and has delinked the relationship the believers had with the Lord and also among themselves. These wicked tares have infiltrated into all possible places they could fit themselves in.The Consecrated Ministry of TPM

After Delinking the Christian’s relationship with the Lord, these brokers(tares) are telling the Christian that they will pray to God on their behalf. I am asking when did we ever ask them to come between us and the Lord? Now they are bringing in Heretic teachings by imposing themselves as an indispensable part of your Spiritual Journey. Dear Brethren , I tell you to push away these tares and get them out of your way. They are a nuisance for your relationship with the Lord. The Lord wants a Loving Relationship with YOU DIRECTLY and he has not authorized these Brokerage houses like the TPM for his relationship. Let me ask you, If you are a Parent, would you allow a stranger to come in between your relationship with your Son/Daughter and Manipulate it. Far be in that the Lord will allow you. It is your responsibility to Remove these Brokers from your relationship with the Lord and also other brothers. The earlier you remove this interference, the better for you.

These Brokers are not interested in your welfare. All they want is your money and your submission. Just as a business house, their interest is to keep you in their control and increase their Franchise business.  TPM as an Organization is only interested in getting more business and opening More franchise. But Do you know the payment for their Business growth is costing Your Relationship with the Lord ?  That is not a Business which is profitable to you. Cut off that Loss and get back to the Loving Lord.

When you run a Business house, you have to market your business based on a Unique Selling Point(USP). The Nicolaitans of TPM have specially invented a USP called  “CONSECRATED SERVANTS OF GOD“. We shall discuss more of this USP of TPM in the Next blog – Part 3.

22 Comments on “Fingerprints of the Enemy – TPM Niclolaitans (Part 2)”

  1. From where did we get this tradition.
    Getting prayed and making an offering before and after a trip. Every time we meet them we are expected to offer.
    Take counsel for every thing: what you buy what you sell. If you have little function like birthday you are expected to invite them honour them with food and money.
    Even suggesting is considered as questioning their authority.
    But the sad and painful thing is I fail to see any care or burden for souls both within and without. Iam talking about the majority of course there are exceptions.

    What we have done for the dying souls heading for hell ?. Few years ago one chief pastor in OHIO said evangelism is not our business. Our duty is to make the church perfect.
    One worker brother sometime back proudly quoted one of the present chief pastors saying ‘we are not servants of men but servants of God’ but it is contrary to st paul who said we don’t preach ourselves but Christ but WE ARE YOUR SERVANTS.

    1. Luke 11:43 – “Woe to you Pharisees, because you love the most important seats in the synagogues and respectful greetings in the marketplaces.
      Have you observed this ever?
      – Pastor’s kitchen
      – In wedding receptions, separate queue (oh sorry, there’s no queue for them). Separate seats for them, separate service for them. Hardly have i seen them ever stand in queue with other guests. Oh, it may affect their consecration/separation.
      – In functions where other church people also come, separate table and chairs for them.
      Is this a Christian attitude?

    2. The Examples that you cited are clearly the incursion of Nicolaitans into our lives. They have effectively pushed out Jesus and God out of our daily lives. We need to take back what was lost.

  2. Very well-written article, Bro Admin.
    Since my moment of realization, I have understood that one of the major reasons for this divide is the translation that is being used and emphasized and even pressurized to be used is KJV.
    They don’t care if the children in the Sunday School struggle understanding the verses, they still want them to memorize the verses just like the muslims do the quran without understanding a single word of arabic! They just refuse to let the children learn from the easier translations.
    I personally do enjoy reading the KJV, but it’s a fact that many things have been mistranslated & even misinterpreted in the KJV, which one can realize only when one reads other translations. I keep switching between ESV, AMP & NIV versions. MSG is also a good read in that, it provides a synopsis in very basic english. Good for kids to understand.
    Coming back to the main point, the primary reason for this divide is the translation of the word – Ekklesia – which is a Greek word defined as “a called-out assembly or congregation.”
    Translating it as “church” has resulted in the rise of so many denominations & divides.
    Refer these websites for more info.
    http://www.bible-truth.org/Ekklesia.html
    https://gotquestions.org/definition-ekklesia.html
    Another primary problem I find is with the usage of the term “saints”.
    Whenever Paul uses the word “saints” in the opening of his letters, he is always referring to the people within the church. Saints are the holy ones – washed and sanctified by the blood of Jesus.
    E.g. 1 Cor 1:2 (ESV): To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints…”
    and
    Phil 1:1 (ESV): … To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons.
    Paul addresses the whole church as saints and separately greets the pastors and elders.
    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, the ones who are reading these blogs & posts, my humble request is this, please read the scripture with an open mind, without holding on to any presumptions & prejudices. Let the “rhema” Word reveal the truth to you. This site doesn’t intend to malign anyone in particular – neither workers nor believers – but instead, point out the unbiblical doctrines that have crept inside us.
    Don’t listen to what this site says or what i say. Listen to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit.

    Isaiah 1:18 (KJV) – “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:..”

    Meaning of reason: the power of the mind to think, understand, and form judgements logically.

    God bless you.

  3. One more practice that warrants debate. Ministers especially sisters visiting the homes of the believers. In the bible James says (first case) if any among you is sick, call the elders. If not sick, Why then believers long for a visit from the ministers. It is a waste of time for the ministers. You see them already three times a week in the church. Why this visit? It is like going for a collection. Most of these visits are full of gossip.
    James again says (second case) if any one is afflicted (trials tribulations and persecution) LET HIM PRAY.
    I am not talking about ministers visiting the homes of unsaved and non believers. That should be encouraged.
    I believe this practice should be abolished.
    Please correct me if iam wrong. I am open to correction

  4. Another tradition that we have (most likely borrowed from the Hindus) is that we are expected to take our new vehicles to church and get it prayed. It’s almost as if believers believe some kind of magic proceeds out of their hands and cover our cars and bikes. I think they (intentionally?) try to keep the believers as infants and like an infant depends on their parents for food/protection/help, the ministers take that place and stop believers from growing. Listen to his sermon (it starts at 57m and 45s). Here pastor MT says believers shouldn’t give money to the poor but instead give it to the pastors so that believers avoid becoming proud (oh yea, the infants that we are, we must be shielded from everything!)

    1. You are very right Brother…Once a friend of mine took his brand new car to the Faith home to get prayed. The car is well known for having low clearance. Just after he got it prayed, its bottom got scraped on a Bump inside the faith home premises. He came and told me that he learned his lesson of getting prayed by people for a car. I too learned my lesson from him 🙂

      1. lol that must have been a painful lesson to learn for your friend. Believers don’t have confidence that God will hear our prayers and protect them but instead have more confidence in TPM ministers. That is such a sad reality that people are living in.

    2. Brother,
      A Mumbai friend of mine told this story. Pastor MT created a Poor Relief Fund in Mumbai where many well off believers gave donations to the poor through this fund. A worker sister named Gracy Varghese was in charge of the whole disbursement thing. Nobody knew how did she manage it. People had great belief in the sister. She was the glorified Singer Sister of Mumbai Centre (Vile Parle). But after few Years She had an affair with one Elder named Ashish and even got pregnant. Finally, they eloped with all the Money collected. Many Believers who knew their money was used by her for her future family.

      DO NOT FOLLOW THIS SUGGESTION BY MT THOMAS. THIS IS DANGEROUS DECEPTION

      1. wow! I guess that is when he was transferred from Mumbai to Bangalore. He also taught this ridiculous teaching that by chanting “praise the lord” we are depositing currency in heaven. And that by chanting 100 times everyday God will give what we want. If that isn’t trying to “bribe” God then I don’t know what is. The same pastor taught Daniel was like Jesus who did not commit a single sin.

  5. Brother tpm workers bless us when u are sound in financially. It is Very simple. If u are suffering certain financial issues means they wont visit our home. They simply say that god is not with u. Confess everything. If u are financial sound means they will say God is with u. If u are sound in financial means they will bless thousands of time they will say bless lord bless lord bless lord bless lord and offen visit there home if u are financially sound.

    1. Luke 6:20-26
      20 Looking at his disciples, he said:
      Blessed are you who are poor,
      for yours is the kingdom of God.
      21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
      for you will be satisfied.
      Blessed are you who weep now,
      for you will laugh.
      22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
      when they exclude you and insult you
      and reject your name as evil,
      because of the Son of Man.
      23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.

      24But woe to you who are rich,
      for you have already received your comfort
      .
      25 Woe to you who are well fed now,
      for you will go hungry.
      Woe to you who laugh now,
      for you will mourn and weep.
      26 Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you,
      for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.

  6. All these are valid observations and I don’t think these are seen in developed countries. The devil takes opportunity to target these things in India only. The next generation are seeing these just like we see Indian government struggling. These are infirmities that will be gone soon. Youths sees these differences.

  7. Bro Admin, did you by any chance read the circular by Tpm about love marriage? Did you know there’s a discipline period of 6 months just cz someone gets married in a different church. And the discipline period is not just for the couple but for the parents too. Day by day these dimwits are coming up with stupidity. I have the circular if you’d like a copy.

    1. Kindly post that circular in this site if you get it. I only heard it. Would be great if everyone gets to read the insane rules of this church.
