Pastor Abraham Mathew brought back the old TPM nostalgic effect when he showcased his Unbridled desire to sit on the throne of God. I recollect my childhood days when as a small boy, I would hear the Pastor happily thumping the bible and quoting Rev 3:21 where the TPM Saints are going to be sitting on the Throne of God and ruling the entire universe. He was quite excited to have the power and authority of God which can be used with vengeance. However, after few years I came to know that this Minister thought that some power over a worker sister is better than the utopia he preached.
As mentioned in yesterday’s article you end up being a cult when you try to have a private interpretation and explanation of unconnected bible passages.
knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20
Such things happen in Organizations like TPM when they already have a “Set Conclusion” and will twist so-called supporting scriptures by ignoring all other scripture passages. I too was brainwashed into believing the TPM Explanation in my childhood.
Oh yes, before I proceed I would like to inform that Rev 3:21 is not about Special TPM Saints but all who believes in Jesus Christ as the Son of God (Overcomers in the Verse).
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:5
Moreover, Throne in the context represents limited delegated authority and not an absolute Authority. Therefore, dear TPM Fans, please stop your daydreaming and start obeying the basics of scripture.
Abraham Mathew’s Desire to Usurp
Taking a clue from brother Cognizance’s comment, I tried to listen to the message of TPM deputy chief Abraham Matthew (International Chennai Convention 2017 Saturday evening). I was appalled once again to hear the boasting with which TPM chief tried to exalt his place. He said that TPM servants and apostles and apostolic ministry of TPM will have a place in between cherubim in most holy place. This is to say that they will dwell in between cherubim. Nowhere in the bible did any prophet or apostle dared to exalt his seat in between cherubs. This is a clear demonic voice that desires to dwell in between cherubs, the place of God.
It was common in OT times for people to praise and exalt God, by saying “…God dwells in between cherubim.” It was a common phrase used for worshiping God. We can find several of such phrases in Old Testament (2 Kings 19:15, 1 Sam 4:4 Psalms 80:1, 99:1).” Cherubs were basically carriers of the throne of God. We see that in Ezekiel and psalms (Psalms 18:10, 99:1, Ezekiel 10:18-20). Therefore the phrase “dwelling in between cherubs” was another way of referring throne of God. In Tabernacle, there was the holiest place which had the ark of the covenant. This ark of the covenant had two cherubim overshadowing it, and God used to speak to Moses and Aaron from between the cherubim. Thus God speaking from between the cherubim meant that God was speaking from his throne. Thus cherubs were an indication to the very throne of God.
Look at the above picture of the Roman Catholic pope who considers himself as Jesus in flesh taking a place between cherubim idols.
TPM deputy chief Abraham Matthew is not one step behind in following Roman Catholic pope in usurping the position of God. Listen to this message clip from international convention .
Abraham Matthew says
“So this place IN BETWEEN CHERUBIM above the mercy seat from where the glory of God shone, it is SHADOW IN ETERNITY OF MOUNT ZION where God’s servant his apostles, HIS APOSTOLIC MINISTERS who are perfected WILL DWELL. ”
Ah! So you have heard yourself the boastful spirit that wants to dwell on the throne of God in between cherubs. This is quite contrary to the picture you get in Revelation 21
We have all heard TPM tabernacle teachings that as God spoke from between cherubim on the mercy seat in OT times, so in like manner, God speaks to believers from the mouth of TPM workers. Therefore according to them the two cherubs in the tabernacle were a shadow of TPM workers. There is no reference in the bible where we have any apostle in New Testament or prophet in OT saying that cherubs were shadows of messengers of God. Although the writer of Hebrews chose not to reveal the details of what cherub represents (Heb 9:5), yet TPM tried to go past the writer of Hebrews and establish that they have deeper revelations that the apostles themselves. Having said this all these years, TPM is now trying to upgrade from being cherub to the very seat and throne of God in between cherub. Prophet Ezekiel reveals that the fallen Angel tried to upgrade himself from being cherub to the very seat of God. In Ezekiel 28:14 we are informed that the fallen angel was once a anointed cherub. From there he desired the seat of God himself.
“Because thine heart is lifted up (speaking proud things), and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God (desiring throne of God), in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God… (Ezekiel 28:2).”
Thus fallen angel was once anointed cherub who tried to upgrade himself from being cherub to the seat of God himself. Similarly, TPM workers are also trying to upgrade from calling themselves cherub to seat in between cherubs the very seat of God. I’ll repeat what TPM deputy chief said,
“So this place IN BETWEEN CHERUBIM above the mercy seat from where the glory of God shone, it is SHADOW IN ETERNITY OF MOUNT ZION where God’s servant his apostles, HIS APOSTOLIC MINISTERS who are perfected WILL DWELL”
Now see the table below.
|Fallen Angel||TPM workers|
|1) was anointed||1) are so called anointed|
|2) was cherub||2) call themselves cherub|
|3) was on holy mountain of God (Zion)||3) claim that they will dwell in zion (holy mountain of God)|
|4) Desired seat of God in between cherubs||4) desiring seat in between cherubs (2017)|
Since last few articles, God has been gracious to reveal the antichrist spirit of TPM. Anti-Christ spirit is that which tries to usurp the throne of God. It is a spirit in opposition to God. It was seen right at the beginning in the garden of Eden when it deceived eve by saying “ye shall be gods.” It was seen right in the times of Apostles (1 John 2:18). It was seen in two thousand years of Christendom after the resurrection of Jesus. It is present even now in TPM and likes of such cults which exalt men more than or equal to God. Sooner or later the Spirit will reveal its real face. It is now hiding behind the face of ministers of light. We have been saying this thing again and again in this website. We are thankful to brother Cognizance for highlighting this. We are also thankful to other readers who have been informing us many things that we knew not. And above all, we are greatly and greatly thankful to God, for opening our eyes. We all need each other’s prayer so that we may escape this great deception. Above all, we need the mercy of God.
