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 20:29-30 “I 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 14:26 “What 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 13:25 “But 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.
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.
