Flee from the Assemblies of God 3

Many are having difficulties in their marriages and with their children because they are suffering the consequences of their decision to steal from God. When we give our tithes and offerings to Him, we give Him what He is due. A person who tithes says to God, “I am dependent on You. I am putting my faith in You to help me govern my affairs.

taken from An official AOG website

The AOG misuse of Malachi to teach that their members who don’t tithe are cursed is at the root of many perverse teachings such as I quoted above. This also feeds the sick delusions that the hirelings in the pulpits are some type of OT priest while those in the pews are lesser laity. The sad reality is that those who financially support and rejoice in such false teachings coming from man made religious institutions are cursed under the law and are being deceived into building the religious kingdoms of men. It is time to abandon the harlot AOG who reduces her victims to a spiritual piece of bread and start feasting at the table with King Jesus.

I do not write this to condemn anyone who this currently describes (though sadly most do not realize that this describes them), but as one freed from captivity to AOG I urge any true brethren who are sitting in their pews with a sort of Stockholm Syndrome to flee from Babylon. Like the religious jews of the first century had to make a radical choice to repent and follow Christ so do you dear friends. Do not fancy yourself as being an on fire Christian and be fooled by the “bigness” of the AOG, but rather humble yourself as one who must repent of an entire religious life built on a lies and traditions. Jesus calls you to forsake your religious life and follow Him outside the camp.

I want to address one more delusion taught in the AOG, that is that their denomination is the result of the Azusa Street revival. I want to make it very clear that the denomination is not what was birthed in the revival, it is the resulting product of having fallen away from it. According to Frank Bartleman, who reported the Azusa Street revival, AOG is:

1) Not a true pentecostal church
2) An advertisement of failure
3) Something God’s people must be freed from
4) An Ishmael of the flesh

The Lord said: “That is what I told you.” They had done it. Surely a “party spirit” cannot be “Pentecostal.” There can be no divisions in a true Pentecost. To formulate a separate body is but to advertise our failure, as a people of God…

The church is an organism not a human organization. They later tried to pull the work on the whole coast into this organization, but miserably failed…

God’s people must be free from hierarchism. They are “blood-bought,” and not their own. An earlier work in Texas, later tried to gather in the Pentecostal missions on the Pacific Coast, and Los Angeles, but also failed. Why should they claim authority over us? We had prayed down our own revival. The revival in California was unique and separate as to origin. It came from Heaven, even Brother Seymour not receiving the “baptism” until many others had entered in here. He did not arrive in Los Angeles until the “eleventh hour.” The great battle from the beginning, both in Los Angeles and elsewhere, has been the conflict between the “flesh” and the Spirit, between Ishmael and Isaac.

-Frank Bartleman

The end result of everything Bartleman warned about is the AOG denomination. Praying all true believers be freed from it by the truth of Christ’s words and the apostles. For by means of a harlot a man is reduced to a crust of bread -Proverbs 6:26

    Malachi 3:8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

    Let’s update this into the New Covenant: “You have robbed me when you stopped helping the brothers and sisters in need, and turned a blind eye, when you had the ability to do so”

    If a Christian was indeed not a giver, by his freewill, as he purposes in his heart, then yes, God could say he is robbing God.

    But not robbing God for omitting to tithe to a religious organization. That is manipulation.

  2. I have never been more convinced that these false ideas spread due to individual professing believers (not synonomous with real Christians necessarily) failing to ask God Himself to reveal His truth- to desire Him above all things.
    When we think about it, religion itself in whatever form is a fixed entity- it has a set of parameters that encompass it. These parameters may occasionally change or be added to, nonetheless they remain fixed. What is fixed is seen, one can adjust their life accordingly and manipulate their surroundings. Anyone can position themselves within religion to affect the others or the whole and this is exactly how these errors and heresies get introduced among the people.
    Contrast this with John chapter 3 about those born of the Spirit being like the wind. No matter how they try these folks cannot pin them down. They ask questions hoping for specific answers and yet all they receive is more wind. It infuriates them, they must know whose side these people are on. It doesn’t matter they say, but please, tell us plainly, are you with us or them.
    It seems to elude these folks that “we’re with Him.” And being in Him, we move and live and have our being. It’s quite simple really.
    Those who want credit and recognition for anything God does must attempt to claim it, define it, package it and sell it- it must be confined to be controlled. How different is this than even Jesus Himself who made Himself of no reputation and simply moved and spoke as His Father led Him moment by moment in the wind of the Spirit. May His children do likewise.

    Ed Young (SBC) on tithing:

    He says that its all about the money: yes, it’s all about Ed Young’s love of money.

      Jesus and Money

      “If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?” Luke 16:11

      If your heart is not pure and blameless toward money and wealth, how then can God entrust ANY spiritual riches to you? If He can’t trust you with money, He can’t trust you with anything more.

      Read again: If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

      It means that the covetous prosperity-money-preachers are spiritually blind, for anyone who loves money is spiritually blind, they have nothing from God.

      …………………………………

      Isn’t the whole drive behind collecting tithes and giving tithes indicate covetousness, the love of money?

      A leader who is “faithful in the unrighteous mammon” won’t demand people give him money, and certainly won’t collect tithes so that he can live it up in the lap of luxury.

      If anyone really, really wants to tithe, let them tithe to a leader or teacher who actually feeds them, and who does not seek after money, or take up offerings for himself, but who trusts God for his support, like Paul did. Or distribute the tithe to needy believers (doing good to the household of faith).

      But when a believer really understands what it means to be FAITHFUL with the unrighteous mammon, then the issue is giving according to the Lord’s direction, not tithing – led by the Spirit not the law. To be faithful in the New Covenant means to be obedient to the Spirit, not the law..

    “Ed Young (SBC) on tithing”

    Wow that guy is a real tool of the devil. Someone should tell him that it’s not all about the money, its all about Jesus. We are blessed through Jesus, not through a tithe. We are blessed when we give out of a heart of love, not under compulsion.

    The reason so many of his church members don’t have joy is because their pastor is a dumb greedy dog. That would make me sad too…

  5. I DID leave AOG, btw …

    And, Michael, LOVED your comment …

  6. What is the difference between any of the man-ordered, institutional churches?

    They all bear the same disease …

      Mark-

      I went to a AOG as a young believer and many people that I love still go there. That is the main reason I single it out.

      In Christ-Jim

  7. Yes, that is the problem: think of all the GREAT fellowship we could enjoy in the liberty of the Spirit if all of the sincere believers trapped there awakened.

    I participate free fellowships. People are free … to come, go, act, speak …
