TPM Pastors have no interest in preaching about Jesus, His crucifixion, His resurrection, the redemption of mankind through His death and resurrection. They use all their manpower, wealth and energy preaching their own Disney land. This Disney land of TPM is called ZION. And oh yes, it’s their proprietary fiefdom and ancestral heritage.
Wherever four people gather, they speak about this Disney land of theirs. Is this in line with the gospel preached by Jesus and His apostles? This article is written with the intention to test it. I am writing this because many including me have become mentally tormented due to the continuous bombardment of this perversion for many years. Their blind followers which cannot distinguish between the left and the right hand are foolishly believing that their entry into New Jerusalem is confirmed through these so-called saints, free of cost. It is my responsibility to proclaim the truth according to Ezekiel 3:20; 18:21; 33:13.
The Neo-Zionists from TPM
For a doctrine to be called Apostolic, it has to be taught and practiced by Jesus and his Apostles. Never did Jesus even utter nor did his Apostles ever teach “Zion”, as a doctrine. But without even an iota of shame, TPM minsters proclaim this elitist Zion. They think Jesus and his apostles left out Zion and somehow it was revealed to TPM’s founders, 1900 years later. “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15
Jesus never mentioned about this Zion, leave alone its Perversion as taught by TPM. So where did TPM get this perversion? When TPM leaders made Zion as a doctrine, either they are making demigods through their so-called holiness or they were becoming the spatula of the devil. What else could be the reason?
In the Bible, the word “ZION” is mentioned 168 times – in Old Testament 161 times – Psalms(40), Isaiah (52), Jeremiah (17), Lamentations (15) and 7 times in the New Testament. Wherever the word “ZION” is mentioned in the Bible, TPM believers are made to believe that it is our own Clergy’s special place. I hope that nobody will have any objection to my own analysis. I would like to proceed with the declaration that I have no intention of questioning personal beliefs and personal sanctification of life.
From the day of the capture of Fort Zion by David, from Jebusites (2 Samuel 5:6) which was their safe haven, “Zion” is known as the dwelling place of David and the main city of Jerusalem. This is the Literal “Zion”. When the Israelites disobeyed, they went into captivity and so their ZION was also in a state of siege. The old testament passages regarding ZION are for this LITERAL ZION in the land of Israel. It has no eternal implications.
Isaiah 1:8, “Daughter Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a cucumber field, like a city under siege.” When we read Isaiah 3:16-26 we can see many other curses and punishments like “Lord will send scabs on her head; the LORD will make beautiful Zion bald”. (Also read Psalms 137:1-2).
“Zion” is mentioned 52 times by Isaiah. In Isaiah 1:1, we see the introduction as “The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amos saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.” (Meaning – until the time Judah and Jerusalem will stand on the face of this earth these prophesies are connected with them.)
Similarly, I would like to select one verse to prove that the prophecies in Jeremiah are connected with Israel. Jeremiah 3:14, “Return, faithless people,” declares the LORD, “for I am your husband. I will choose you–one from a town and two from a clan–and bring you to Zion.” Prophet of sorrows Jeremiah in his ‘Lamentations’ mentioned 15 times about this ZION and they are concerning with the literal ZION of literal Israel. To establish the thought of Jeremiah let us see Lamentations 1:4, “The roads to Zion mourn, for no one comes to her appointed festivals.”
Jeremiah 30:17-18, “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD, ‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares……. the city will be rebuilt on her ruins, and the palace will stand in its proper place.”
In Psalms where it is mentioned 15 times, we can see “Zion” which is the right of David is shown as Literal, Spiritual and Hope. Example. Psalms 84:5, “Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage/highways to Zion.” And verse 7 says “They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.”
In a future time, this same literal Zion will be the place where the Lord will have his earthly kingdom rulership .
Zechariah 8:3, “This is what the LORD says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the LORD Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.” (Also, Isaiah 2:1-4)
In Short, ALL Old Testament passages regarding Zion is the literal place captured by David.
In the New Testament, the word ZION is mentioned Seven times. Neither Jesus or his Apostles ever mentioned anything regarding the Kind of Zion taught by TPM. The TPM Doctrine is an elitist perversion with the intention of subjugating the unlearned masses.
In all these references, the apostles were eager to show that Jesus is the Lord of the Church spanning both the Old and New Testament periods. As mentioned in an earlier article, God has no period cutoffs. It is a creation by modern dispensationalists.
John 12:15, it is written that “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey‘’.
In Romans 9:33, 11:26 and also in 1 Peter 2:6 it is mentioned that “Jesus became the cornerstone of Zion”, in Mathew 21:5 and This statement is about Jesus and Israelites. Some portion of Hebrews 12:22 is “But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem”, since minimum 5 groups were gathered there from angels to righteous saints, it is nobody’s property and also, we can understand that it is the place of Old Testament saints as well. So, it is written in Hebrews 11:10, “Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God” and in Hebrews 11:16, “Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one……for he has prepared a city for them.”
The Spiritual Gurus of TPM has no understanding that Zion and New Jerusalem are being referred to the same entity. TPM Ministers somehow thinks that ZION is the Capital of Jerusalem. M.T Thomas explains Zion as the Parliament/Cabinet of Jerusalem and nonsenses like that. Please hear the clip in this article to know the TPM Deviation.
It is important to know how do the Jews understand the concept as both of these are Jewish terms of ancient history. Click on this link and you will know that Jerusalem and Zion is the same place being looked from different viewpoints. ZION is not an exclusive group within Jerusalem as taught by TPM. Both terms are used interchangeably based on the perspective.
Therefore it is quite clear that references to Eternal Zion or Jerusalem an indication of our Blissful life with the Lord. It is the same place and is not to be used for divisive plans within the Church. Beware of them that Cause divisions among you (Romans 16:17).
I want to ask a question to our Elite TPM “Zionists” who says that Old Testament saints have no connection or rights with the Eternal “Zion”.
Can you show me another ‘city with eternal foundations, designed and built by God’ from the scripture?
Because of that, it is written in Revelation 21:14,22, about New Jerusalem the bride of the lamb. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. Is it not the same reason, for writing in Psalms 122:3-4, ‘‘Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together, that is where the tribes go up– the tribes of the LORD– to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel.” This is very clearly marked in Revelation 21:12 “And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:”
All of TPM’s perversion is based on Revelation 14:1 Mount “Zion” in which we see the Lamb and with him the144,000 virgins. They are standing with the Lamb before the Four beasts and the 24 elders (Verse 3). According to the TPM Doctrine, the Four beasts are Dispensation of law Saints and 24 elders are Dispensation of conscience Saints. Therefore, our TPM Zionists will have to agree that Old Testament saints are present in “Zion”.
The Problem with TPM is that they use different scales for interpreting the same passage. In Rev 14, They can convert the symbolic lamb as Jesus and a symbolic mount as a Spiritual one. But they want to continue to use literalism when it comes to Virgins and 144,000.
Is this not an ultimate attempt to show their pride and superiority? They want to show that they are better and more saintly than others by disobeying the verse ‘let each esteem other better than themselves’ (SPIRITUAL PRIDE), For those who try to show all the mention of “Zion” in the Bible as their “Spiritual Zion”, will they agree with the “defiled Zion” shown in Isaiah 33:14; 1:8; 3:16-26; 10:24; 49:14; 52:2; 64:10; are themselves?
I am praying for them to realize their wicked ways of leading the children of God astray. When will they realize that Visions and Signs are used by God to test the heart of people? As far as I see the people of TPM has departed from the Lord and has followed after other Gods(their So-called Saints) forsaking the criteria laid in Deuteronomy 13:1-6.
This is for those ministers who preach incessantly whenever and wherever they see the word “Zion”, thinking that it is about them. Have some shame and stop boasting about the greatness of your own so-called ministry. Start thinking about the historical, prophetic and doctrinal background of the passages that you are reading. May your spiritual eyes be opened.
