Time for Testimony in TPM

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”Acts 1:8

When I was a teen, I witnessed an auto accident. It was a shocking experience that was compounded by what followed. As the only witness to the incident, I spent the ensuing months telling a series of lawyers and insurance adjusters what I had seen. I was not expected to explain the physics of the wreck or the details of the medical trauma. I was asked to tell only what I had witnessed.

What Jesus Commanded?

As followers of Christ, we are called to be witnesses of what Jesus has done in us and for us. To point people to Christ, we don’t need to be able to explain every theological issue or answer every question. What we must do is explain what we have witnessed in our own lives through the cross and the resurrection of the Savior. Even better is that we don’t have to rely on ourselves alone to do this. Jesus said, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

What Jesus intended was for his disciples to stand as witnesses and give up their lives in adversity.

They triumphed over him
    by the blood of the Lamb
    and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
    as to shrink from death.

Rev 12:11

As we rely on the Spirit’s power, we can point a hurting world to the redeeming Christ. With His help, we can witness to the life-changing power of His presence in our lives!

I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true;
It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do. —Hankey

In this article we will have an overview on testimony and witnessing in TPM.

The TPM Twist

Some perversions of TPM Testimony twists are as follows.

Subconscious Shift

Being a witness for Christ primarily means public proclamation of our belief that we believe that we will receive eternal life (by belief in Jesus) (Matt 24:14). It is asking people to follow Jesus for eternal life. Thus, witnessing Christ concerns with ETENRAL life. However if we change the eternal perspective to earthly, then we are guilty of what bible labels as “miserable” (I Cor 15:19).  If we make Jesus a tool for people to use to get the things of the earth then we are most miserable.

Time for Testimony in TPMNow let us look at the testimonies which take place in TPM, every Sunday! The TPM minister in-charge announces “time to give testimonies for goodness of God done in our lives.” It is not wrong to glorify God for material blessings to others. However, it is wrong to make a habit to show it in public, and shift the focus of listeners from heavenly realm to earthly one. By such testimonies, the listeners expect God to grant materials and finances in their life to make it enjoyable for their earthly sojourn. Read again. It is not wrong to glorify the goodness of God; we must be thankful in all things! But we can do this privately. Occasionally, we can do it publicly. But to make a habit out of it to market God as Aladdin’s lamp to get earthly desires is perversion of witnessing. TPMs version of testimonies, constantly bombard listeners with the idea of how to make this world a better place to live in. This is in stark contrast to bombarding with which the apostles bombarded the first century church (Acts 14:22). They prepared their audience for persecution and trials. There is no church which bombards prosperity testimonies as frequently as TPM does.

Denominational Migration is Salvation in TPM

I wish I could hear someone stand up and weep with joy saying, “Once I was dead now I am alive; Hallelujah! I am passed form judgment into life! All glory to beloved who loved me and gave his life for me!” But alas! I haven’t heard one testimony where one stood up and expressed his joy in his passing from death to life, in TPM. Testimonies in TPM are only about change of denomination. They typically says, “Once I was in that denomination and then God brought me to this denomination.” They call this denominational migration as salvation! Do you think migrating to TPM is equivalent to entering from death into life eternal?

Marketing tool to advertise false doctrine of divine healing

TPM testimonies are often used to market their false teaching on divine healings. Every Sunday you will find one or two TPM die hard standing up and marketing the TPM doctrine if divine healing.

Now let some TPM minister face a severe sickness unto death and let him die.

What happens?

They ask believers to get fake medical certificate before burial.

Why?

Why can’t they stand with divine healing testimony in circumstance of civil punishment or persecution of prison?

Didn’t the first century believers endured prison for their faith and witnessing?

Did their witnessing cease in lieu of prison persecution?

No! But TPM’s witnessing divine healing ceases.

They lie and produce fake medical certificates for burial.

A TPM tradition

In TPM, giving a Testimony is not when Holy Spirit fills your heart with gratitude. In TPM, it is a tradition. It must take place compulsorily. When white clad leader says “Time for testimony” and we find no one arising up, then the saint becomes angry and says “No testimonies, Shame on you calling yourselves as believer.” Then some believer stands up as a forced testimony to save honor to the rebuke of TPM’s bossy minister.

Witness to prayer of saints

Generally, the purpose of a testimony is to glorify God. However, in TPM saints are glorified and exalted. Saint worshipers stand up and says, “I was not feeling well and then I called TPM minister and he prayed for me and now I am perfectly alright.” This is usual testimony in all TPM churches throughout the world. Such testimonies train other members to give such testimonies and the cycle keeps repeating every Sunday all throughout the TPM kingdom.  It is a marketing gimmick to expand the kingdom of TPM.

Conclusion

Dear TPM Believer,

Do not fall for the such gimmicks of TPM Ministers.  If you are truly born again (not the fake TPM one), then the following verse is for you.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful lightOnce you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

1 Peter 2:9-10

You are supposed to declare the praises of Jesus for what he has done in your life. i.e called you and brought you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Do not waste your time in confirming yourself to these external manifestations of Religion. Be true to yourself.

  1. Testimonies are meant to be only for the glory of God. Paul’s testimony or his defence to Agrippa is a great example (Acts 26).

    Testifying any earthly blessings achieved without God’s grace or wisdom is not likely to glorify God.

    Even if we don’t speak much, through our life we can be a living testimony to others around us.

  2. About a few months ago, I attended a tpm sunday sermon after a long long time . Time for testimony, one person sang a song, he testified he got admission in a prestigious college, stressing that it was possible only because God blessed him. Fair enough giving the credit to God. Should see him after a few years.

    Lord knows I am tired of hearing this, admissions, cars, houses, not one stands up and testifies about personal change, deliverance from a certain addiction or something that is not part of worldly blessing. Racing to compete each other’s assets. I am not against these, at some point of time, one should stop saying ‘it is the lord’s doing’ when you are clearly doing it out of your own desires.

    Most of them go to these churches out of habit, come sunday, white dressed, rest all days wear all colors in style. No revival/ reformation/ change of hearts. Sometimes when I passby the church, all these white dressed guys are standing outside during sermon or come out during a particular song or they stand in a groupie. What’s up with that? White dressed gangsters in mind?

    Learn from other churches of the biblical disciplines to be found. They may not wear whites on sundays but truly their discipline is astonishing. tpm as a church should be examples to others not to make us flee as if see a plague coming.

    Next time you stand up, ask yourself, do you really believe of your testimony as achieved with God’s grace and wisdom and then testify for the edification of the church.

    1. Brother/Sister,
      It is easy to wake up a sleeping person. However, it is nearly impossible to wake up someone who is pretending to be asleep.
      We have given the wake up call loud and clear.We will no more be accountable for the blood of TPM believers who choose to pretend to be asleep. Let the Lord deal with them.

    1. Unfortunately their actions are leaving out much to be desired.
      For eg. The deputy is muzzling anybody trying to speak against the immoral acts of his buddy Sunny. If this is the kind of response , how can you expect any betterment to this organization . It will continue the downward slide.

      1. If the deputy is using a humanly educated method (he is merely copying the way his predecessors responded) to muzzle people, he won’t be able to do this forever.
        If someone can provide details of his muzzling ways or methods, people can be better prepared when they meet him face to face to raise important issues with him.

  5. Trying to pressurize them. Mails going explaining all recent issues in North India . In UAE and Delhi groups are getting formed across church those who don’t support and not. One group ready to act respond and not scared. If this continue many will be exiting. Culprits has to be brought out or else let it explode by itself by God

        2. Dear Sister,
          There are quite a lot of incidents happening within TPM where even worldly people will cringe. We could not publish the details of these incidents because we do not have evidences to show. This happens when we do not have people in the location to send us those evidences. But we know for sure that a sister was impregnated by another male faith home inmate and later on it was discovered that she was pregnant. Suddenly the sister died just by a fall (according to TPM explanation) and they quickly buried her. This happened in Andhra Pradesh. Somehow people got suspicious and they reported the matter to the police. The Police exhumed her body and did a post mortem. In the post mortem it was confirmed that she was pregnant with a baby. So much for these celibate TPM Ministers who proclaim their consecration as a means for their exalted position.

          BTW, this is just one incident which got some focus. However, this does not mean that the rest of the folks are holy. The only difference is that the rest of the Brothers and Sisters are smarter while they have physical relations and hence do not get caught. Moreover, We know Coimbatore has many issues. Few months back we heard that a pastor in Coimbatore, impregnated a Hindu convert lady and he was transferred when they knew that she was pregnant. There is no point in telling to people who cannot correct these mistakes but claim to be consecrated servants of God.

          Ephesians 5:11-13
          11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.

          1 Timothy 4:1-3
          The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things TAUGHT BY DEMONS. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 THEY FORBID PEOPLE TO MARRY (TPM and RC) and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.

    1. Do not get deluged with too many hearings. These are good for one’s admonish. You be true to God and do what God tells you to do. Do not go blindly with what ministers says. This is what many started doing these days including me. Weigh everything in the light of Word of God and then act upon

  7. Dear admin,

    I think we need to work more to reveal all these facts,because a lot of god fearing people became victims e.g. Myself I dragged my family into this pit now I don’t know how to bring back I can’t stop them to going TPM but after all these things one thing I can tell that believers also habituated in the aspect of hiding what’s going on inside so disgusting,
    Need to take any quick action there are some good pastors we cannot deny that but the end of TPM believers seems very miserable, when I was new to TPM I thought it’s a heaven which gifted by god but after knowing all these , and I’m the victim of their wedding punishment because of marrying another church girl who was keep on telling about the vain boasting of TPMites but I ignored her but finally I’ve given up and told I was brainwashed. Please help me to find out many mischievous things done by so called saints so that I’ll alert at least some brainwashed fellows and will break their fellowship

  8. Dear Bala,
    This is an organisation where devil is in full control (it is my opinion). When you got to the faith homes (fake home as someone mentioned in one of the articles of this site) please observe the attitude of believers and so called saints. You can very well understand everything is superficial. Here absolutely no love exist between saints to believers or between believers and believers. The believers are scared of theses white clad day time saints because of the intimidatory tactics they adopt towards these coward believers.

    Brother read the bible without tpm lens, then Holy Spirit will help you to understand the truths. We need not be at the mercy of human beings. When we are in covenant with GOD no weapon shall prosper against us.

    I am sincerely worried about the fate of TPM believers because I feel based on scripture none of these saints except may be less than 5% fear GOD.

    I have a feeling that many of the articles are the experiences of people who have thorough knowledge of indoctrination going on inside.

    1. Does that mean you left TPM and joined any other or practicing yourself? I would rather recommend, be here and you be strong in truth and like Nehemiah pray. God will change. If God has predestined TPM to slide, faithful God will reveal you what to do.

  10. Sister Priya,
    Since you are from Coimbatore you may be very well aware of the reasons behind the attack on M T Thomas by Yesiah. Can you please elaborate it and how the church members were forced to keep quiet. Also the impregnation incident of a new convert believer by a tpm saint (elder).

    Brother Bala, it is the divine intervention that you eyes were opened otherwise it is impossible for such a drastic change from brainwashed tpm believers.

    1. Dear Brother Franklin, It is true that I am going to coimbatore tpm but I actually do not know about that incident. It might be be because I don’t keep any sort of communication with the believers here. But yes, now I vaguely remember something I heard about a young brother hitting an elder pastor but all that I know is that ….. I was told that that young worker brother didn’t finish reading his bible completely before coming to ministry and hence he was rejected and sent back and asked to come back after completing the Bible. So the brother got angry and hit with a Mike. This was also told that the mental state of the younger brother was not good and hence ONLY HE had hit. And that a lot of blood fell. But which is the TRUTH ??? The REAL TRUTH ?? Are both of us talking about the same incident ? One incident we heard around 6 months back in Coimbatore. Another incident about 2 years back about a young worker brother beating an pastor cause he tortured. Not sure about the reason. We came to know about this on a.what’s app group of old believers in chennai…. pics also were shared… have you got any clarification ?

      1. Sister Priya,
        This has happened about 2 years back. Everything is secret here. I think most of these white clad day time saints know they won’t go to heaven. To hide all their misdeeds they will adopt all tactics. May GOD bless you.

  11. And also there was was an incident a brother was killed in Coimbatore not sure of The place in baptism tank, and later was told he died of electric shock, this is quiet common in TPM they are masters in killing, and no one will have a doubt abt it,
    They already started killing lot of people who wanted to leave this organisation, take of list of death in last three months any body will understand finally it will come out one day….
    Lot of suspious death no body dare to complain, even scare to ask question and keep silent
    They are worse than you imagine just white out side, pious and show off,
    Worse than the notorious cults,
    Breaking and comming out of there mind control is very difficult, they twist and enslave the belivers, with fear of being isolated from group and getting married take advantage of their weakness and lot more,

    I thank god he helped me to get out of this cults,

    Admin should write about this following topic
    Believers are forced to think that getting a funeral of a great centre pastor will take them to heaven,
    Even it’s not openly said most Of The old believers even my old family members once said I want my body to be buried by some xyz pastor,
    Dear brothers and sisters after our death there is nothing to do even our body is buried or burnt or thrown out in the road, when our Christ comes back we’ll rise up, this doesn’t depends on how we were buried, it all depends on how we lived,
    Even people are scared to leave this organisation even they want to,
    Finally say who will conduct funeral for my death, and which cemitry will they keep my body,
    These people follow tradition not Christ,

  12. The only way the members can bring about a change is by turning off the cash flow. Then faith will be back in the F Homes and leaders will be on their knees doing what they are supposed to.
