Moses of the 21st Century – TPM Pastors?

Way back, when God had a word for the people of Israel, He spoke it first to Moses who then spoke it to the people in such a way that the words of Moses were the words of God.  As it turned out, whenever someone questioned Moses or whenever someone dismissed Moses, severe judgment from God was levied upon him.
 
“Pastors” today teach AND practice this same arrangement and actually enjoy saying that they have the same authority, the same administration, and the same functionality of Moses as it relates to “their own congregations.” Really?
 
Fasten your seatbelts as we very briefly examine this totally unscriptural and blasphemous policy that “pastors” employ as they seek to corral God’s people under their supposed rule.
 

The Reality

Why do you suppose “pastors” and various other “church leaders” support and teach this?  Is it because they seek to follow God’s Word as they see it?  Not very likely.
 
In many cases, multitudes follow along this dark path because of having been deeply deceived by their false theological training and upbringing.  Remember, “church leaders” having rule, authority, power, and control is a classic foundation of local institutionalized churches.  It’s the hallmark of Christendom; a hallmark that has been in place for about 1500 years.
 
Though it is wicked and corrupt, most church leaders are mislead, and in some cases, completely hardened in their stance through the false traditional teaching that what they are doing is Biblical and they are being obedient to the Lord.
 
Many are in this diabolical bubble, thinking that they have been called by God to behave in this fashion.
 

The Truth

It is true that under the Old Covenant, a select group was set apart from the rest of God’s people and ordained to minister unto God.  They were the spokespersons for the people in the name of God.
 
And the priest shall make atonement for the soul that errs, when he sins unwittingly, before Jehovah, to make atonement for him and he shall be forgiven.” Numbers 15:28
 
There can be no question but that under the Old Covenant, (the ministration of death written and engraven in stones) God created a
special clergy” separate and apart from the people.  Members of this group stood between the body of Israel and the sanctuary where God dwelt.  They wore beautiful robes which distinguished the wearers from the remainder of the people of God.  They performed functions forbidden to those who had not been anointed.  They held titles and implemented formulas and rituals prescribed by God.

But now, a new day has dawned

The cross of Christ forever wiped out all such separations and distinctions.  They were abolished and done away when the legal custodian delivered us to Jesus, and faith in God’s Son replaced that righteousness which was by deeds of the law.  Every child of God is now a priest.
 
Every person on this whole earth who has been justified by the blood of Jesus is a priest of God.  To him who loves us and freed us from our sins with His life’s blood, who made us a royal house, to serve as the priests of his God and Father…to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever! Amen.  Revelation 1:6
 
Every disciple of Jesus has entered the ministry.  The word of God knows nothing of a disciple who is not a minister.  You also as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ…you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:5,9
 

The time of reformation has come

The age of which the prophets spoke was ushered in.  The new covenant, written not with ink, but with the Holy Spirit upon tablets of the heart became a reality.  We are no longer minors in virtual slavery. The term was completed.  God sent His own Son, born of a woman, born under the law, that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. Galatians 4
 
The church in the wilderness was now superseded by Christ’s Ecclesia.  The nation of Israel was gone, the temple was gone, the priests were gone, the Levite’s were gone, and concerning the very Law of Moses, we read:
 
In that he says, a NEW covenant, He has made the first OLD. Now that which DECAYS and waxes OLD is ready to vanish away.” Hebrews 8:13
 
In the same way, He gave them the cup after the supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant sealed with my blood, which is poured out for you.Luke 22:20; 1 Corinthians 11:25
 
We have been set free.  For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1
 
Jesus has become the surety of a better covenant. Hebrews 7:22; Hebrews 9:11-12; Hebrews 8:2-8; Hebrews 9:15; Hebrews 10:9-10; Hebrews 12:24
 
Who also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.
 
…But their minds were hardened: for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted; which veil is done away in Christ.” 2 Corinthians 3:12-16
 

But instead, what do we see?

Today’s local institutional church doesn’t want the New Covenant to replace the Old.  For two thousand years, it’s been trying to put the New Wine of the New Covenant, in the Old Bottles of the Old Covenant and put the New Cloth of the New Covenant, on the Old Cloth of the Old Covenant, and the results are always disastrous.
 
As a consequence, because the church and its leaders do not want to give up Old Testament thinking, they have done their best to weave both covenants together in a way that makes them void each other out completely!
 
Instead of the priesthood of all believers replacing the Old Covenant priesthood, today in virtually every local institutional church setting, we have pastors and elders who have replaced the Old Covenant priests and Levite’s.
 
When the masses “go to church,” they do so with the same Old Covenant mindset that the people had in Moses’ day.  They wait for “the pastor” to go to the mountain top and get the revelation from God for them, regardless of whether or not the Spirit has laid any message on his heart to begin with!
 
He then supposedly “comes down from the mountain” every Sunday, stands behind a pulpit, and delivers what is called “God’s message.” And all the people; the pew sitters; the clapping seals; nod their head in agreement to whatever is spoken, not daring to question or disagree!
 
Rather than know and hear God for themselves, they have traded that New Covenant reality for the way it was before Christ.
 
People go to church thinking they’re still in the Old Testament Era when God’s temple was a tent or a building that people come to in order to meet with Him and hear from Him.  Rather than embrace that WE are now the temple of God, (1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Corinthians 6:16; Ephesians 2:21; Hebrews 3:6) many prefer it the old way.
 
There is a veil over many eyes in the reading of the Word.  Many have refused to believe that the God who created heaven and earth and all that is in them does not dwell in temples made with hands, and neither is worshiped with men’s hands as though he needed anything. Acts 7:48; 17:24-25
 
They have not grown in grace and advanced in the Spirit.  They have decreased and retreated to the law.  They have gone back to the weak and beggarly elements.
 
They are acting as if the death of Jesus was a myth and the cross at Calvary a fantasy!
 
To the contrary, many professing Christians are not the family for which God planned.  They establish institutions and organizations of their own design and come before God with a mixture of the Old and the New which they have blended together, calling it “the local church.”
 
This is the mindset in today’s local institutional churches, and it’s very disturbing.
 
What else can we conclude from this overt display of clinging to these weak and beggarly elements?
 
What else can we conclude as we witness their indifference to the worth and blessing of Christ’s death on their behalf?
 

Only this:

Looking at the local institutionalized church today, you would think that the only ones who seemed to have benefited from the death of Christ was the cattle and sheep!  That’s it!  Sacrifices are no longer necessary.  Corralling and slaughtering of these animals have ceased.
Because of Him, the cattle and sheep get to live!
 
But other than that, as we view church leaders and church members in local institutional churches today, it looks as though very little of anything else has changed!

  1. Hi Folks,

    Do you know why lucifer got kicked out because he was envious of god.
    You just made the list which means you guys are sons & daughters of the fallen angel.
    Guess what even you guys have fallen into the same trap in which your father was kicked out for.

    If you really want to help out humanity go out and do charity to heathen of this world.

    None of you are half the man than your father is.

    1. So Dear SunSon,
      That is exactly we are proving here. TPM Doctrines are envious of Jesus and his work that they want to dilute it by juxtaposing themselves to that. Please read all of our articles, especially the heresy series and you shall know it.
      We are exposing these devious doctrines of TPM through the site.

      1. Hello Admin,
        Did you pay attention to the last line of the person named Sunson? He is in a way abusing the people involved in the site.

        1. Brother,
          It all reflects on their parental upbringing and the society they live in. So other than feeling pity, I cannot do anything. We do not/can not reply back in his language.

    2. Brother Sunson,

      I hope you’ve read the articles on this site before commenting. It is TPM that usurps God (the very thing Satan wished to do). The articles here are merely pointing out these instances in TPM so that people may realize. Even I have heard many sermons where they say Pastors are like Moses and believers are like Aaron and Hur who merely hold Moses’ (TPM pastors’) hands up. I know TPM is wrong in doing that because in Deut 18:15 onwards, the coming Messiah is prophesied and he will be a “prophet like Moses”. Moses is a precursor to Christ, not TPM pastors. This article is merely highlighting the reasons why TPM is wrong in claiming to be like Moses. If you have any scriptural arguments, I would love to hear.

      1. Your rebuttal to Sunson is so well worded brother- that is all we need to silence our critics- answer of a good conscience and words salted with grace.

  2. Around five years ago, I stepped in to meet the present deputy center pastor in GDL, Bangalore. I was only pouring out my woes but he saw beyond that because he quickly went into the defensive and cut me short with a most polite demeanour that I did not want to contest.

    Even without allowing me to finish the logical para of my pouring thoughts, he held on to the last heard sentence and wrapped up the conversation as if he was in a hurry to see me off.

    His contention was this: “Moses was such a man of God that God would not allow his own siblings to rail an accusation against. That is the specialty of his calling.
    Even if he would have been in the wrong, we never see the Lord entertaining a case or notice against the prophet. He saw the Lord and spoke to him face to face.
    If you were to read the Bible properly, you will understand how disastrous it is to even come to us and try to find fault. Do you think heaven will entertain this.
    God defends us all the time even if people are able to come up with some of our ignorant mistakes. He who never put Moses to shame, will not put us to shame. We report to God and the Lord will judge us or convict us. Even if someone (minister) has offended you here, you cannot raise it, because we are stewards, our honour is given by God. We have a greater responsibility to perfect the whole church and so look at the bigger picture”

    I left the place thoroughly confused and deeply saddened as I had come with great sorrow and I knew this pastor was more level-headed and meek and polite than most. As soon as he sensed my agenda ( I had no agenda) he saw me off and deftly walked me out of the room.

    1. You should have taken with you some good currency notes to be spilled. Then only they will hear you. Next time just be prepared 🙂

    2. I think I know this pastor you’re talking about. His name starts with an “S”? If it’s him, I concur. He really does seem meek and polite than most. He was the pastor in charge at FT for quite a long time. But it’s sad that devotion to a denomination nullifies any good character one has. Their first instinct is to protect the image of the denomination even if it means to trample over the wounded…but I guess they do it without realizing it.

      1. Indeed brother- He was the same person who had in early 2006 I guess- come visiting to my cousins place. He had stated that the devil is most active between 11.50 PM to 12.10 AM, so these 20 minutes should be an intensive RPD battle… If you are careless, then no prayers will work.

        1. I couldn’t help but laughing out loud!! We all know that satan is one of the most busiest of creatures – always plotting to pull down sincere believers and to destroy their faith. But after reading this particular time-slot, I’m wondering how well he would be in his time management when he realizes that he needs to take care of each and every believer, across the globe, spread across different time zones!! As silly as it can get.
          I very strongly feel that TPM has borrowed a lot of its philosophy, traditions & beliefs from other religions.
          Some random ones that I can quote on the fly:
          * 3/6 month ban for family for marrying outside TPM – Roman Catholic belief
          * 4 am as time of God, spilling of boiling milk as sign of good luck during house warming – Hindu belief.
          * Dogs can see the angels and shun them – Muslim belief.

        2. * Dogs can see the angels and shun them – Muslim belief.

          That’s so funny!!!!!!!!!! lol
          Angels getting scared of domestic dogs and not able to enter the houses of the good…..

  3. Brother X-TPM, I agree with all points except early morning prayers and midnight prayers. We have best examples(Jesus and Moses) and verses in bible. I have personally experienced.. After I encounter with few satanists, witches .. God taught me importance of early morning some time midnight prayer… Yes even then it should be based on Holy Spirit conviction.. I cant even make theology out of my own personal experience..

    1. Sister,
      Jesus wanted to exemplify the importance of personal time, space and relationship and give it an order of importance.
      This is to teach us that we cannot be busy-bodies working day in and day out for God, unless we have given ourselves ample space and quality time to seek HIS care and love and will.
      Poor TPM workers, esp. junior sisters- are totally deflated during the 4AM worship.
      Do they have the liberty to praise God according to the urgings of the spirit? No…
      It starts of with a Tamil song and then the booklet of names. Was there a burden eased or spirit uplifted? No… simple drools.
      Call for a survey of all workers and believers- Most of them are habituated in waking up and finishing off these prayers for conscience sake.
      Praising is the smoke and vapour that the soul emanates that reaches the Holy throne room of the Highest- I am sure Jesus and Moses did not have a prayer book with a list of names nor were three laboured ‘sthothram’ offered for each.
      I am not against 4AM praising- but look at it this way- if the Muslims were to somehow feel jealous of TPM, then they might revise their morning call to 3.45 AM instead.. lol. Poor TPM will then be forced to make daylight savings measures.
      Our Father is a loving Father, he seeks no buttressing from His children.

      1. My comment-//I am not against 4AM praising- but look at it this way- if the Muslims were to somehow feel jealous of TPM, then they might revise their morning call to 3.45 AM instead.. lol. Poor TPM will then be forced to make daylight savings measures.//

        If you are urged to pray at 4AM, I am not stopping you- Go for it, heartily and do not have any feelings of guilt if you cannot continue because of many reasons.

        I can write loads about the Spirit of competition that works in Christianity, more so in Charismatic/ Pentecostal worship and especially in our beloved TPM. I am sure we all know that. ADMIN perhaps could bring out an article if he chooses to.

        Pride and discouragement are the stepchildren of this competitive spirit.
        Allegorically speaking, they mate with each other and bring forth giant Nephilim whose name is ‘Ultra-Emotional worship’
        Many prayers get hindered, many Princes of Persia keep the churches in bondage because the believers do not have the spiritual liberty that a Daniel had.
        The need of the hour is for an outpouring of discernment and Godly fervour mingled in divine wisdom

  4. Brother/Sister “Truth Please”

    I stand in contrast to your views about any special timings for prayer. As pointed by bro.Denzel and bro.admin about ridiculous philosophy of pastor MT, I agree with them that you can pray at any time and at any place and in any language. Prayer comes from your heart and it is straight away directed to God. If you pray in Jesus name sincerely and not for name sake then that is sufficient. I believe God can hear it. No need to climb mount everest or walk temple stepswith naked foot or wake at 3 am to make God hear your prayer. Timings of day and night are nothing but result of rotation of earth and revolution around the sun. When there is four o’clock in India, then there may be 11 o’clock in other part of the world. How is that different in sight of God if one prays at 4 am in India and the other person prays at same time but in different time zone. Only that it should be addressed in Jesus name according to the Will of God as the scriptures says is sufficient.

    Concerning the idea of taking examples from Moses or Jesus, I would suggest it is better to take moral example of their nature rather than copying or imitating someones prayer timing or physical activity. It would be foolish to try to take example from Jesus and try to walk on water or to take example of Moses and try to hit a sea with rod saying “let the waters divide into two and let me pass through it.” I think that, “Jesus praying in night” had nothing to do with timing but with quiet time apart with God.

    1. It is TPM and charismatic mindset that makes you think that Satan works more in night time than day time. Or that spiritual forces in high places will stop your prayers at particular time and so on. Perhaps the idea of warring with Satan in prayers and shouting loudly by filling with spirit is derived from passage of Daniel’s fast and angel coming to him and saying, prince of Persia stood against me. Then this verse of Daniel’s prayer hindered is mixed with words of Apostle Paul that our fight is with spiritual powers of darkness residing in high places. Finally mixing the two passages you get to this mindset that praying in night, or 4 o’clock fighting in prayer with devil is very effective and similar concepts like prayer warrior etc. etc.

      Prince of Persia withholding angel who came to answer Daniels prayer can better be mixed with Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of image of head of gold and other parts of body as other kingdoms of world and perhaps with revelation 12, where a war broke in between Michael and dragon and their respective angels. I think that these scriptures must be used to understand the God appointed time frame for kingdoms of world and their appointed time in relation to kingdom of Jesus Christ. These passages must be understood in terms of demonic powers ( prince of Persia, prince of Greece etc) taking hold of kingdoms of world in God appointed time and being thrown down by God as one prince comes after another to rule the world. At first there was babylon and then persia and then greece and then Rome. Finally, iron legs of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, pointing to Roman empire ( prince of Rome I coould say) was the last or second last empire in Gods appointed framework. Fall of Roman empire in history in AD 600-700 had to do with Michael and his angels defeating dragon and his princes and casting them on earth (Rev 12). Therefore it say “Woe to inhabiters of earth for devil is full of rage and has been thrown down and knows that his time is short” This took place when the man child Jesus was caught up to throne of God, to rule the world, pointing to end of kingdom of world and start of reign of Jesus and spreading kingdom of God on earth. Perhaps apostle Paul’s remark of our spiritual battle with prince of darkness residing in high places had to do with spreading the gospel of kingdom of God against perhaps prince of Rome ( dragon and his angels, prince of persia, prince of greece etc.).

      If this be true then be rest assured that spiritual forces of darkness, which is dragon and his angels are in present times not in high places for bible says ” there was found no place for them in heavenly places.” It doesnt mean devil is not doing anything to fight you or preserve his kingdom, but he knows he has small time and at present might be working as beast of revelation 13 and the harlot of revelation 17. Remember the beast came out of land and another from sea. They are already fallen. They are trying hard to preserve their kingdom. But Christ will soon bring everyone under his subjection. Then the kingdom will be Lords.

      I may be wrong but that’s what I think. Correct me if I am wrong. In short all this has been said to check our emotional Charismatic-ism.

      1. Brother Nath, junior workers esp in Training- have zero personal time for prayers, for reflection, for a liberty to give to God.
        In such a case, Prince of Persia is made irrelevant here- We need to battle a certain prince behind TPM before we realise there is a prince of Persia as well.
        Let us ask ourselves, how much personal prayer happens in the major conventions and major meetings….
        90 percent of the believers are selling/buying doves at the gates and 5 percent are cooking them in the kitchen. Its only the remaining 5 percent who actually attend the meetings wholeheartedly and devoid of disturbance.

  5. //90 percent of the believers are selling/buying doves at the gates and 5 percent are cooking them in the kitchen. Its only the remaining 5 percent who actually attend the meetings wholeheartedly and devoid of disturbance.//

    Even those 5% get nothing than false gospel and repetitive teachings. On 4th day or final day they preach about Zion and so called glorious ministry.
