Everything in the bible is written to lead men to salvation. Jesus said, “Search the scriptures they speak about me (John 5:39).” Paul says law was our tutor leading us to Christ (Gal 3:24). So the bible is all Gospel-centric. Everything in the bible is Christ-centred. Consider for example, incidents in life of Moses. Moses was a precursor to Christ Jesus. His life, his biography, points to one who was greater than him.

   MosesJesus
Rescued Israel from the slavery of EgyptRedeemed people from the slavery of sin
Moses forsook riches of Egypt, to suffer along with the people of God (Heb 11:24)Jesus forsook heavenly riches to suffer for people  (Philip 2:7).
Moses did miraclesJesus did miracles
Mediator of Old CovenantMediator of New Covenant
Moses was meekest on earth (Num 12:3)Jesus is meek & lowly (Mat 11:29)
Faithful in Israel (Num 12:7)Jesus is faithful (Heb 3:2, Rev 19:11)

We should therefore not commit the blunder of making bible passages man-centric or any human organization-centric. For example, we should never use the goodness of Moses to exalt ourselves. We must not say like Moses we are meek people, or like Moses, we are faithful in the household of God, or like Moses, we are leaders of Israelites! However, the spirit in TPM utilizes every such opportunity to glorify themselves. They hardly leave a stone unturned to honor their own ministry. For example, if Moses is a pointer to Jesus, then TPM will use this opportunity to show to people that they are Moses of the 21st century (see here). This is an obnoxious spirit in TPM from which we ask our readers to stay away. I have heard of TPM Pastors telling us that God made a High and exalted place(ZION) equal to him of which Satan Coveted. They say God had kept it for the special people of Zion and Satan wanted to take that place. Notice how subtly they are bringing in the devious doctrine of self-exaltation. Keep away from this kind of perversion. If you do not have discernment, you will get trapped in such a dangerous doctrine.

Understanding Levitical Priesthood through Jesus’ Eyes

When we start reading the bible we see that from starting itself, God’s message is crystal clear that man committed a sin and fell short of the glory of God.  There is a gap between Man and God. But God had not cast off man completely. He had a plan to remove this breach. Jesus would come when the fullness of time would arrive and reconcile sinner man to God (Eph 2:16). But until then, men stood apart and alienated from God. God in the meantime introduced the Levitical system on a temporary basis (Heb 9:10) as a  pointer to his great plan (Gal 3:24). This temporary system had an arrangement of priests and the role of a high priest. The High Priest’s role was to take the blood of goats and bulls towards God to bear the iniquity of men.

 

We can think of this temporary system as a model or a replica. Like we have toy cars that are made of plastic but incapable to take us to our destination, similarly the Old Testament system had a replica sacrifice system and a replica high priest, who were incapable to bear sins of men and remove the iniquity (Heb 10:1,4), nevertheless they were a copy of the original.

Now isn’t it foolishness to interpret this replica toy model to point at ourselves. God had always from the beginning kept Jesus at the centre of what he did. Jesus was slain even before the world was made. He was at the centre of Levitical ministry too. All the sacrifices pointed to him. However, TPM says that they were in God’s plan and mind while starting this Levitical ministry. TPM teaches that high priest of Old Testament was toy replica pointing to TPM ministry (Click here to see their claim). They teach that TPM ministers bear the iniquity of men. This is obnoxious horrendous treachery. Isn’t it? Where God had Jesus in his mind and his plan, from the beginning and in all his activities in the Old Testament, there TPM says they are the fulfillment of that High priesthood ministerial plan of God. How blasphemous! When will the spirit within them cease from self-exaltation?

Dathan, Korah and Abiram

Aaron was the first high priest among Old Testament Israelites. After his death, Eleazar his firstborn took the office of the High Priest (Num 20:25-29, Ex 29:29)! While Aaron was appointed as the High priest who was a replica pointing to Jesus, some people came in between and tried to usurp the position of Aaron. This was as if they were also in God’s plan, to foretell the world, what would happen to them who would try to take the honour meant for Jesus to themselves. Behold we have the thing happening before our very eyes.

Let us look at the incident of Dathan, Korah and Abiram who were appointed to minister in tabernacle services arose and demanded the position and priesthood of Aaron. They began murmuring against Aaron the High priest. Moses said unto them, “Is it small thing that God has separated you from congregation …. to do service of tabernacle …..seek ye priesthood also …WHAT IS AARON THAT YE MURMUR AGAINST HIM (Num 16:9-11).” So it seems they were murmuring for the priesthood of Aaron. God then asked each of the leaders to bring a rod and whosoever’s rod would bud, he would be God’s chosen one. For the dead rod to bud meant that it would become alive. It was as if God was saying “he who would come to life from dead will stand before me as representative of the congregation of people.” And on the morrow, Aaron’s rod arose from dead and budded and showed sign of being alive. This budding of the dead rod was a shadow of Jesus overcoming death and becoming alive again to be appointed as the ONLY High Priest mediating for men.

Aaron’s rodPointer to Jesus
Bud coming from the dead staff or staff cut from the plantPointed to arising of life from death, coming to the resurrection from the dead

How else can we interpret this passage? Shouldn’t we use every opportunity to exalt and glorify Jesus? John said to let him increase and let me decrease. Jesus is the high priest forever (Heb 4:14). This is how the bible also interprets high priesthood office of the Old Testament. There is no other explanation in the bible to the high priest office. However, TPM like Dathan Korah and Abiram seek high priesthood of Jesus. They say we are high priest of God (Check this). We will burn incense. We will bear the iniquity of men (Check this).  We are also holy (Num 16:3) and we can go near God (Num 16:5). What happened? God’s anger burned all sinner men. He buried Dathan Korah and Abiram alive in the earth. In the end, men had to accept that they are sinners and are unworthy to go to the tabernacle or stand in the gap between man and God (Num 17:12).   

None of the 12 disciples ever called himself high priest. We see that the writer of Hebrews had an opportunity like TPM to exalt ministry of 12 apostles in the Epistle to Hebrews! But he used that opportunity to show forth Jesus to his readers. His whole letter is filled with glorifying Jesus everywhere. Like TPM he did not glorify ministry of 12 apostles. He did not say new testament ministry points to the apostolic ministry of 12 disciples of Jesus. It is only the spirit of Dathan, Korah and Abiram which dares to seek the High Priesthood of Aaron. That spirit is in TPM. TPM preachers have no fear of God in saying that they stand in the gap between God and man and bear iniquity of others.

See the table below to understand that Aaron was pointing to Jesus, not to TPM

   AaronJesus
Chosen by GodChosen by God, did not take honour unto himself (Heb 5:4-5)
Was High priest until his deathIs High priest FOREVER (Heb 7:23-24)
Bore symbolically iniquity of peopleActually bore our sins and iniquity (Isaiah 53)
Went inside the holiest place with the blood of lamb every yearHas entered heavenly tabernacle with his own blood (Heb 9:12 ).

Note also that Dathan Korah and Abiram were a pointer to those men who would dare to take priesthood of Jesus. TPM is a group of one of such men on earth who disregards the High Priest Jesus and puts themselves in that pedestal.

   Dathan, Korah and AbiramTPM
Claimed “we are holy”Claim “We are holy”
Desired priesthood against AaronDesire high priesthood after the order of Melchizedek(Who does not have any descendant).
Their tribe’s rod didn’t budThere is no fruit seen in them. They are resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
Went alive into the earthUnless they repent of seeking priesthood of Jesus, they will also go beneath the earth.
Sons of Korah later ministered in the templePeople may come out of TPM & other such churches to truly serve God

Conclusion

Dear Dathan Korah and Abiram of TPM(TPM Ministers),

Kindly put off your TPM goggles which, shows you to yourself everywhere in bible. Put on Jesus lens, to behold Jesus in every page of scriptures. Jesus is at the center of God’s plan, not TPM! Cease from glorifying yourselves, your consecration, you not marrying, you forsaking your family, your ministry, your holiness etc, etc…   Time is inching towards judgment day, repent unless like Dathan, Korah and Abiram, ye be taken alive in earth, instead of being alive taken up in his second coming. You have this opportunity to get off the rebellion bandwagon like the Sons of Korah. May the Lord enlighten you and give you repentance.

  1. This cult is from the pits of hell. Their doctrines testifies about it without any doubt.

    There are sincere men and women in there who have been deceived but lack the courage to acknowledge it and step out in faith trusting the true Saviour. I feel sorry for them however if they continue in this deception and also contribute to deceiving other gullible folks, they are simply working against the Kingdom of God. I have no qualms in calling them the servants of Satan.

    The deception is so strong that inspite of all the evidence on this site, there is no change whatsoever. Their pride makes it even harder, only God can save them and their followers.

    There is more humility amongst the secular leaders as they are open to criticism and willing to accept their mistakes and also make changes where required but this cult’s leadership continues in its blindness heading to its destiny – eternal damnation.

  2. TPM have been wrongly interpreting this passage of Dathan Korah and Abiram, and misusing scriptures to rule gullible blind followers. They have been fear mongering believers that they are Moses of 21st century and if any believer would dare to speak against servants of God, then God will make earth open and swallow him. I think this passage is frequently used by TPM pastors all over, especially when any believer raises his voice to their nonsense authority. Next Sunday they will preach from this passage that any believer henceforth must be warned to dare not raise his eyebrow against these demigods. However time is up. There treacherous methods are exposed. We now know that Dathan Korah abiram were ministers and not common believer. So the passage above is warning for clergy class which have become mad & blind by in seeking their own glory.

  3. I called one worker sister and asked, “Who bore our iniquity?”
    She said,”You don’t know who bore our iniquity? Asking childish questions”
    I said,”I really want to know who bore my iniquity”
    She said,”Jesus”
    Then I asked her about “Saviours bearing men’s iniquity”..
    She said, ” Yes, we are bearing your iniquity and praying for u” then she sang that stanza very happily.
    I asked her , “Can u show me one Bible verse where tpm saints can bear my iniquity?”
    She said, “Every song of tpm is written according to Bible only”
    I said,”No, it is completely unbiblical and only Jesus bore my iniquity”
    She didn’t allow me to speak anymore. She said, “Every time u r only arguing and asking foolish questions..Keep quiet, keep quiet, don’t think anything deeply”
    Then she said,”You forgot me completely, and not giving me anything to read”
    I said her,”Yes, I will give you something new to read and after that you may curse me”
    She said, “I will not curse you. You give me, I will read”.

    I hope God will open her eyes of understanding to see, accept and stand for the truth.

    • Brother we already have 200 articles in this site and we do post when we have some light on things which we think needs to be exposed. Moreover, we have our secular jobs to work. Therefore it is not possible to put daily articles. As of now we are caught up with some work so yes the rate is slow. Will put few soon. Also do share tips with us on topics which you think that needs to be highlighted. I am quite interested to know which workers are looking for inputs daily? Tell them we cannot manufacture as they push it on sundays. ?

        • Yes this is vain repetition done by pagans..We all know TPM has its customs coming from the pagans viz. Hindus, Buddhists,Jains and Catholics. So it is not at all surprising that we are seeing the violation of scriptures here.


          But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Matt 6:7

        • I was prescribed 500 RPD @ 4 am by a worker Sister to have my child cured of an ailment. She was quite confident that it would work. I did not outright reject on her face, but prayed that Lord would dawn on her what it all meant!!

  5. @Admin

    Can you edit the article by adding the following points:

    1)Moses brought the Law in the Old Testament in the New Testament Jesus brought the Grace and Truth/Gospel (Jn 1:17) [Grace & Truth does mean Word of Grace- Gospel Acts 14:3; Word of Truth James 1:18: Please tell others to read this verses in Context]

    2)When Law was brought by Moses(after 40 days of Fast) 3000 men died and When the Gospel was Preached(After 40days of the resurrection of Christ) 3000 men were Saved or added to Church.

    3)It is written that Exo 32:1-7 “When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain…People backslid from God or people corrupted themselves”. The same is written regarding Jesus Matthew 25:5 “When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.”. Due to the delay in the Coming of the Lord, Church backslid & corrupted themselves by Idol-worship/ or by Catholicism.

    4)2 Corin 3:7 “Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, transitory though it was,” And as for Jesus 2 Corin 4:6 “For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.”

    5)Moses was given Commandments which were engraved on Stones. In the New Testament Word of God, in Christ Jesus, is written on Human Hearts (Jer 31:31-34; 2 Corin 3:3; Heb 8:9)

    6)The Law which was given to Moses for that, it’s written in Deut 30:11: “the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.” Which is Foreshadowing to Accept Jesus as the Savior. [Romans 10:6-10]

    7)In the Law of Moses, it was mandatory for each male Israelites to follow circumcision. In the New Testament, the “circumcision” is not Physical but “Spiritual” which must be followed by each Saved ones, by abandoning Sin.

    8)By the Law[which was given by Moses] no one can be found Justified [Galatians 3:11], but through faith in Jesus Christ, even we believed on Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the law: because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. [Galatians 2:16]

    9)Moses Saw only the Back of God, whereas for Jesus Bible testifies in John 1:18 “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him”

    10)Law which was given through Moses is a “Tutor” Galatians 3:24. “Anointing” which is given through Christ(Titus 3:6) is the “Tutor”. (1 Jn 2:27)

    11) It was a Commandment given through Moses that Israelites must shoulder the Ark of the Covenant. It is the Great Commission given through Jesus that each follower of Christ should shoulder (take responsibility) to spread the Gospel. (Matthew 28:18-20;Mark 16:15)

    12) The Tabernacle, which was established by Moses, was filled with the Glory of God (Exo 40:34).
    The Church established on Christ (Matthew 16:19) is being Transformed from Glory to Clory (2 Corinthians 3:18)

    Every day COVID 19 is provided us a restospective mind to check back how much time we are near to the Lord.Instead of going through the unhealthy stuff and wasting the precious God given time in the unnecessary social media,(I do not wish to name them again and again), one can dig into these GOLD MINES and get resourced with the fresh wisdom and knowledge.I think this is a golden opportunity to be utilised by every reader and FENCE SITTER in order to re-validate himself/herself with the lies and canards going around us.

    Just as every instrument/apparatus (we have in our homes) that it has got a CALIBRATION status to be updated,even our mind is likened to be as an active instrument in that sense and thus it needs to be RECALIBRATED with the precious Scriptural wisdom/knowledge.
    Here is the golden opportunity provided by ADMN brother and his TEAM. I profusely thank him once again for all his valiant efforts for equipping the reader with the whole armour of God. (Ephesians 6:13….Therefore take the whole armour of God…… )

    Do you know according to which Bible verse TPM preaches Morning Praises? And showing Their own folly by Doing so?

    I believe you might know the answer Job 7:17-18. However, before showing their misinterpretation we need to understand What Jesus meant By Matthew 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”
    This clearly shows the “The Deity of Christ” as “Jesus” will fulfill all the prophecies concerning the coming Messiah.
    To elaborate this, when we read Matthew Ch1&2, very few TPMites realize that “The Geneology of Christ” was a clear way of Showing the Following Prophecies concerning Christ
    1) He will be from the descendants of Abraham.
    2) Among all the tribes of Israel – He will be from the tribe of Judah.
    3) He will be from the Household of David.
    4) He will be born of the Virgin.
    5) He will be born at Bethlehem.

    There are many prophecies: However, I am going to point out something else. Usually many people misinterpret Isaiah 48:16 till Chp Isaiah 53 are written as prophecies regarding Jesus. And TPMites usually takes scripture out of Context Isaiah 50:4.
    Thing is Job 7:17-18; Psalms 8:4-8; Isaiah 50:4 Compare these references with Heb 2:6-10 “But one hath somewhere testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? Or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; Thou crownedst him with glory and honor, And didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou didst put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he subjected all things unto him, he left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we see not yet all things subjected to him. But we behold him who hath been made a little lower than the angels, even Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God he should taste of death for every man”

    So Job 7:17-18; Psalms 8:4-8; Isaiah 50:4 was referring to Jesus.

    >>Psalms 8:4: What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him?
    Jesus the Savior of Mankind both God and Man (1 Timothy 2:3-5); “Son of Man” is “Son of God”

    >>Psalms 8:5 : “For thou hast made him but little lower than God, And crownest him with glory and honor”
    Heb 10:5 Thous has made him but little lower than God, which actually implies God prepared a Body for Jesus. However, it doesn’t imply that “Jesus is also a Creation of God (Like JW preaches)”
    And crownest him with Glory and Honor Jn 1:14 “we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father”

    >>Psalms 10:6 Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet:
    “Psalms 10:6 Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands” John 17:2 even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that to all whom thou hast given him, he should give eternal life.
    Psalms 10:6 Thou hast put all things under his feet: Ephesians 1:22 “he put all things in subjection under his feet”

    >>So, if anyone fulfills Prophecy concerning His own self, there’s only one word for it “Miracle”.
    Isaiah 50:3 “I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering”
    This prophecy was recorded around 650 BC and Jesus fulfilled it when he was on the Cross.

    >>Isaiah 50:4 “The Lord Jehovah hath given me the tongue of them that are taught, that I may know how to sustain with words him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as they that are taught.”
