Now that we have seen in our earlier post that TPM doctrine of Jesus’s second coming is based on their internal planning and manipulation, let us focus on what the scripture says. When reading the scriptures, we should always follow the below pattern
- The words of Jesus supersedes any other passage if there is a seeming conflict in the reader’s understanding
- The other passages of the bible should be used to corroborate the words of Jesus.
- Unclear passages of the bible should never supersede clearer passages of the bible.
- Last but not least. Never accept any interpretation just because it is said and propagated by the Church Clergy.
If you follow the above rules, you will never be in the dilemma that many of our TPM Ministers are in.
Sequence of Events to Follow
God does not confuse you with jumbled up communications. The confusion is a result of human over-specialization and micro management.
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 1 Cor 14:33
Now going back to the pattern we set earlier, to understand prophetical scriptures. Let us search for scriptures which have the direct words of Jesus. These scriptures can be found in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. We also have few other scattered passages in Revelation and the Gospels. We also need to check into the epistles to corroborate with the understanding of his disciples. Finally, we should be able to corroborate our understanding with the Old Testament prophecies.
The Gospel Account
Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 is the same event described by different gospel authors. The disciples wanted to know the details of his second coming and the end of the world. So Jesus let them know all details regarding his second coming. He did not keep anything away from them. Moreover, we need to understand that they were not highly educated people. Therefore, they need to be told plainly the events in sequence. As they were plain men they transmitted what they knew. Let us check the first sign in the sequence.
I believe that this is the most important sign we see during the end. This is not speaking about deception in business or other ways of life.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. Matt 24:4.
It’s specifically about spiritual deception. The agents to spread this deception are False Teachers/prophets (1 Timothy 6:5,2 , Timothy 4:3-4). Sad to say that TPM as an organization stands in the forefront of this prophetic fulfillment. As exposed through this site by many articles, TPM gets an A+ in this category. Deception is most effective when you mix the truth with a little lie. So the truth gives them credentials whereas the lie gives them the needed twist. The Nicolaitan system (Revelation 2:6, 14-15) of TPM puts an imposing authority structure with their specialized clergy dresses. This clergy machinery is used for indoctrination and brainwashing of Christians to such a level that most of them become blind cult members and replace Christ with TPM Clergy as their Lord.
Our Lord is detailing about this deceptive technique in the next verse.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Matt 24:5
Many people have misunderstood this verse and have assumed that there would come people claiming to be Jesus Christ, in the end-times to deceive. It is partially right. However, the context here is not that. To prove it, let me ask you a question. If someone claims to be Jesus Christ and comes to you, will you follow him? Surely NO. Why is that so? Because you already know who is Christ and how he will come next time. Such claimants cannot deceive real Christians. So what does the above verse mean?
It says that people will come during the last days having the Right Confession that Jesus is Christ. The wolves in Sheep’s clothing will ensure that the sheep do not recognize the real Wolf. They will have the right covering. The best covering is to proclaim the divinity of Christ. Let us consider TPM. TPM has got the doctrine of Trinity Right. They have got the doctrine of Christ’s Divinity Right. So where do they deceive their believers? They deceive their believers in removing them far from Christ telling that they need to WORK for their Salvation. They juxtapose themselves(TPM Clergy) as a special category of people who is the essential component for their salvation. They use implied trickery to push their devious teachings. Let me cite an example here.
If you are with TPM for some time, you would have heard that you cannot be caught up in the coming of the Lord if you are not under the Apostolic teaching. By Apostolic teaching, they mean THEIR TEACHING. They keep harping their deceptive doctrines every time to ensure that the hearer gets brainwashed.
It is a Satanic Technique that has been successfully employed by none other than Adolf Hitler.
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
Matthew 24:5 is a warning to all of us to not let our guards down just because of some right initial confession. We need to be constantly on our watch. Note how Jesus did not give Peter the advantage of his previous right confession when calling him out for his being a tool by Satan
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
