Now friends, stop staring at that bedroom pic of Joshua in the Hotel and start reading the article. This was a photo taken when Joshua was in a playful mood with the SON of “S-R”. The boy was promised by Joshua himself that he is his new DAD.
We had read the first chapter of the book of Joshua Thiagarajan. Now as we continue, we will notice that the plot thickens. However, there is a new dimension to the whole story. From this section, we will introduce a new character apart from Joshua and “S-R”. That character is none other than YOU.
Do you recollect a section where we had mentioned that you need to consider the victim as your own daughter? One of the purposes was to warm you up to the prospects that you are also involved in it. Change the angle of the vision. Joshua Represents the Clergy of TPM and S-R represents YOU, the believer. Let us continue with the story. But do not forget the perspective that S-R is a type for YOU. Let us start by meditating on a verse where Jesus portrays the intention of the devil.
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:10
How the Victim was Nailed?
The devil does not have any good intention for you. Knowing this the devil needs to first gain your confidence and make an entry into your life. The best way he gets an entry into your life is by using his so-called religious authority that YOU GIVE HIM. He does not have any authority over your life unless you give it to him. Sadly many of the “Believers” have used ZERO discernment when giving entry to these Wolves in Sheep’s clothing. As long as they wear the white jibba its a pass for them.
In our Joshua story, the Wolf smelled blood immediately as soon as he knew that the woman is divorced and has an authority position vacant in her life. Do you think the wolf will continue to act anymore? No, He stopped with all the acting and showed his true colours.
initially, it started with those little bits of romantic talks and the acting of falling in love. The victim thought that this saint has all the good intentions for her and want to even leave his ministry to be her husband. Wow…What better “ZION” can an unsuspecting woman get into? Listen to the words of this holy saint confessing his unfailing love for the victim.
Such statements to a vulnerable woman make her open up more. She had already reached Cloud-9 in her thoughts. The excitement of romance started to bloom. Whatsapp messages and calls flowed like the Danube in flood. Wow!! I can’t believe the excitement of the 50+year-old Joshua who is now just 33 in his heart and its beating louder each day. Phrases from the Songs of Solomon started flowing from his nectary lips. Any hesitation by the victim is met by more confessions of love and using of the word FAMILY which gives inclusiveness to her son, who is now without the presence of his Biological Father.
Now let us change the gear of the Vision and get YOU into the act. If you have joined this cult as a new believer, do you remember the LOVE BOMBS they threw at you? The TPM Clergy is there for you in all aspects of your life. You feel so indebted to the love that is being showered at you the UNWORTHY person. Remember that they reminded you that they always pray for you unceasingly. Did you not wonder how they knew your needs better than you?
Don’t you remember them saying that they have left all their family and possessions just to serve you? Wasn’t it a pure unfiltered joy to know that this New Church is much better than the old church that you had left? Those days are still fresh in my mind when the married pastor of my old church looked like a rookie when I got myself upgraded to be led by the professional team of UNMARRIED APOSTLES like PAUL.
You cannot explain the excitement that you have found the BEST CHURCH with the BEST APOSTOLIC DOCTRINES. Sunday after Sunday, you attend the meeting expecting to hear what exactly are these APOSTOLIC DOCTRINES that they had PROMISED YOU. When you could not get much on Sundays, you think some special stuff is said on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Therefore, you make all excuses at your workplace to ensure that you attend the weekday meetings to find the TRUE APOSTOLIC DOCTRINES they PROMISED. Are you reminded of the fact that you are part of the FAMILY having secured a seat to New Jerusalem, by the prayers of the saints? Wow!! That is called the Cloud-9 of the TPM Believer.
I, the Admin am using some part of my own life experiences to explain the YOU part. I am putting it here because after talking to many people, I came to know that I am not alone in this kind of experience. Though the pastor who got me and my family into this cult is no more alive, I know it was the Lord’s plan. If he was still in TPM, he would have been posted to Andamans as a punishment transfer for having brought me in.
To ensure that you spend the rest of your day in good cheer, I would like to leave you with the confession of Unfailing Love from our dear Joshua
