There are 7 videos on Derek Prince

 

& 1 video each on Peter Tan-Chi,

 

Michael Brown & Joseph Prince.

 

Announcement No 2:

 

I believe after an absence of 4 consecutive Sundays,

 

Joseph Prince would most likely be preaching this Sunday.

 

If not this Sunday, then definitely, the next.

“Proverbs 10 verse 27 says this,

 

“The fear of the LORD prolongs days,

 

But the years of the wicked will be shortened.”

 

So, listen, if you have the Fear of the Lord in your life

 

you will live longer than you would have without it.

 

Doesn’t tell you how long you will live,

 

but you will live longer than you would have lived

 

without the Fear of the Lord in your life.

 

And I’ve lived a long life

 

and I need some more years of life

 

because my job on earth is not finished.

 

And I tell you I’m very careful

 

to cultivate the Fear of the Lord

 

because it prolongs life.

 

Who would turn that down?

 

The only people who would turn that down

 

are people who are totally unbelieving or totally ignorant.

 

You cannot afford to live without the Fear of the Lord.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Derek Prince brought to our attention

 

that the condition of long life

 

is the Fear of the Lord:

 

Proverbs 10:27 NLT

 

Fear of the Lord lengthens one’s life,

 

but the years of the wicked are cut short.

 

Since Joseph Prince has not even met the condition

 

of fearing God

 

because he teaches against it,

 

how can he be qualified to teach on long life

 

and inherit such a blessing

 

in the first place?  

 

Joseph Prince’s claim that he would live a long life to 120

 

is pure garbage that is fit for the dumps.

“The congregation laughed

 

when Joseph Prince said, ‘Tian Ah’.

 

Is it a joke?

 

Where is the fear of God?”

 

@desmondteng3025

 

“Derek Prince preached on deliverance,

 

Joseph Prince preached on prosperity.

 

Derek Prince preached on the fear of God,

 

Joseph Prince preached on hyper grace.

 

Two different Princes.”

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“@edmundsim6251

 

Years ago, we opened up The Bible

 

and showed it to our care group members

 

about errors in Joseph Prince’s teachings.

 

But we were shocked to hear they said

 

that the Bible were written by men

 

and therefore, there might be some errors

 

whereas Joseph Prince teaches accurately

 

and they rather stand with Joseph Prince’s teachings.

 

What else is still needed to say for us?

 

We left with much grief.”

 

@lindsaylim5806

 

“@joyceliew4352 

 

So sad to read this.

 

The National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS)

 

should read this and weep!”

Come children. Listen to me.

I will teach you, this is how it starts,

 

what it means to fear the Lord.

 

Notice it begins with children,

 

the Father is talking to you.

 

I want to teach you the Fear of the Lord.

 

So, we have all kinds of ideas

 

about the Fear of the Lord in the Body of Christ.

 

In fact, there seemed to be a revival of teaching

 

on the Fear of the Lord,

 

the Old Testament way.

 

God has moved mountains; they don’t even realise.

 

They are camping in old ground.

 

They are in New Covenant.

 

Many Christians, unfortunately, are in the New Covenant,

 

Old Covenant mentality.

 

They still have the wrong kind of fear of God.

 

And Jesus defined the Fear of the Lord as,

 

in the wilderness temptation,

 

as the worship of God.

 

Thou shall worship the Lord thy God.

 

Well, you look at that verse He quoted from

 

is from Deuteronomy 6:13

 

where it says thou shall fear the Lord thy God.

 

So, Jesus defined the Fear of the Lord (Deut 6:13)

 

in the Old Testament as worship (Matt 4:10).”    

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Joseph Prince creates a false dichotomy

 

between the Old Testament and the New Testament’s

 

understanding of the Fear of the Lord.   

 

His view is that we must never fear God

 

the Old Testament way,

 

as Jesus Himself had defined

 

the Fear of the Lord as the worship of God.  

 

in the New Covenant

 

This false dichotomy generated by Joseph Prince

 

is exposed by Derek Prince, Martyn Lloyd-Jones,

 

Michael Brown and Peter Tan-Chi

 

as I will unveil in the ensuing discussion.

 

In ‘Power of Right Believing,’ Joseph Prince wrote:

 

“When the devil tempted Jesus in the wilderness, he said,

 

“All these things [all the kingdoms of the world and their glory]

 

I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”

 

Jesus, quoting from the book of Deuteronomy, replied,

 

“Away with you, Satan! For it is written,

 

‘You shall worship the LORD your God,

 

and Him only you shall serve’” (Matt. 4:9-10).

 

Now, if you do a quick check

 

on what Jesus quoted in the book of Deuteronomy,

 

it actually says,

 

“You shall fear the LORD your God…” (Deut. 6:13).

 

So Jesus defined the “fear” of God

 

as the “worship” of God.

 

In other words, the only “fear”

 

that you should have in your life is the worship of God.

 

Worship Him and all your fears will fade away

 

in the light of His glory and grace.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Even if it is true that Jesus understood the Fear of the Lord

 

in Deuteronomy 6:13 as worship in Matthew 4:10,

 

what about the many other verses

 

that contain the Fear of the Lord

 

in the New Testament?

 

Many of such verses

 

that comprise the Fear of the Lord

 

is speaking about fearing God per se

 

and not strictly about the worship of God.

 

Three of such examples

 

are Matthew 10:28, Acts 9:31 and 1 Peter 1:15-19.

“Now, I’m going back to the theme which I announced,

 

The Fear of the Lord.

 

So many Christians have got the idea,

 

“Well, that was something from the Old Testament.

 

It was under the Law.

 

We don’t need the Fear of the Lord in our lives at all.

 

That’s old fashioned.”

 

That’s totally unscriptural and uncorrect.

 

I want to give you just a few simple facts from Scripture

 

about the Fear of the Lord.

 

Psalm 19 and verse 9 says this.

 

“The fear of the LORD is clean,

 

enduring forever…”

 

So, there’s never a time

 

when the Fear of the Lord ceases to be relevant.

 

It endures forever.

 

And in Proverbs 23 verse 17, the writer of Proverbs says:

 

“That you may continue all day long

 

in the fear of the Lord…”

 

So, the Fear of the Lord is forever and it’s for all day long.

 

In other words, there is no time in your life

 

when you should not be in the Fear of the Lord.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Derek Prince has debunked Joseph Prince’s lie

 

that the Old Testament’s understanding

 

of the Fear of the Lord

 

is no longer relevant in the New Covenant.

 

Since the Fear of the Lord endures forever (Psa 19:9),

 

this means that the Old Testament’s conception

 

of the Fear of the Lord

 

continues into the New Covenant

 

and through all of eternity.    

 

In a teaching session, Derek Prince said;

“First of all, it is fear of a special kind, but it is fear.

 

You’ll notice quite a number of the modern translations

 

don’t use the word fear.

 

That, I think, is partly under a humanistic influence

 

which would indicate we don’t have to fear God.

 

Believe me, we do have to fear God.

 

God is to be feared

 

and there’s nothing in the Bible

 

that ever suggests that’s done away with.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Derek Prince has again stated

 

that since the Fear of the Lord

 

has not been done away with,

 

God is to be feared

 

for all New Covenant believers today.

“Psalm 19:9, which says:

 

“The fear of the Lord is clean,

 

enduring forever.”

 

I believe the Fear of the Lord is not merely clean,

 

it is cleansing.

 

It purifies; it keeps us clean.

 

And that passage says it endures forever.

 

Not merely for this life but for eternity.

 

The Fear of the Lord

 

will always be a mark of all the true people of God

 

– whether human or angelic.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Since Derek Prince states

 

that the Fear of the Lord will

 

always be a mark of all the true people of God,

 

Joseph Prince, who deliberately does away

 

with the Fear of the Lord

 

for the New Covenant,

 

does not belong to the true people of God.

“Now, people say,

 

“Well, I’m saved.

 

I don’t need the Fear of the Lord.”

 

That’s when you need it most.

 

Let me show you in 1 Peter.

 

1 Peter chapter 1, verses 15 through 19,

 

and remember this is written to people

 

who’ve been redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

 

“But as He who has called you is holy,

 

you also be holy in all your conduct,

 

[all your conduct, not some of it.]

 

because it is written,

 

‘Be holy, for I am holy.’

 

And if you call on the Father

 

who without partiality judges

 

according to each one’s work,

 

conduct yourselves throughout the time

 

of your sojourning here in fear.”

 

Whom was it written to?

 

People redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

 

What did it say?

 

Conduct the time of your sojourning here in fear.

 

And why?

 

“Knowing that you were not redeemed

 

with corruptible things, like silver or gold,

 

from your aimless conduct

 

received by tradition from your fathers,

 

but with the precious blood of Christ,

 

as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

 

The very fact that God paid our redemption

 

with the blood of Jesus,

 

the most precious thing in the universe,

 

is a reason why we should always walk in fear.

 

Fear that we somehow betray our Redeemer,

 

fear that somehow, we lower the price of our redemption

 

to something cheap and insignificant.

 

That’s the mark of a committed Christian.

 

That’s the mark of a Christian

 

who understands what it cost God to redeem him.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Derek Prince by his exposition of 1 Peter 1:15-19

 

has dealt a death blow

 

to Joseph Prince’s teaching

 

that the Fear of the Lord under the Old Covenant

 

no longer applies to the New Covenant.  

 

Derek Prince went on to say

 

that walking in the Fear of the Lord

 

is the mark of a Christian.

 

This means Joseph Prince

 

who teaches against the Fear of the Lord

 

cannot be considered a Christian in the first place.

“Then it’s very informative

 

to study the Fear of the Lord in the life of Jesus.

 

And these are found in Isaiah chapter 11

 

beginning at the first verse.

 

“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,

 

And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.

 

[that’s the Messiah, the descendant of David.

 

Now, this is the mark of the Messiah,

 

the mark of the Son of God.]

 

The Spirit of the LORD Shall rest upon Him,

 

The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,

 

The Spirit of counsel and might,

 

The Spirit of knowledge

 

And of the fear of the LORD.”

 

The final manifestation of the Holy Spirit

 

that marked out Jesus as the Messiah

 

and God’s beloved Son was what?

 

… the fear of the Lord.

 

And then the next verse says this.

 

“His delight is in the fear of the LORD.”

 

Dear brothers and sisters,

 

surely, we cannot improve on Jesus.

 

If Jesus, God’s beloved Son, Messiah and Savior,

 

was marked out by the Fear of the Lord

 

and if He delighted in the Fear of the Lord,

 

how can you or I ever dare to say

 

we don’t need the Fear of the Lord.

 

It’s a terrible thing to say.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

By teaching against the Fear of the Lord,

 

Joseph Prince is categorically denying

 

that the Fear of the Lord

 

is one key distinguishing mark of the Lord Jesus.  

 

How can one who denies

 

that the Fear of the Lord

 

is a key mark of the Lord Jesus Himself,

 

be said to be Christ-centred

 

and a true teacher of God’s word?

 

What is worse is that

 

Joseph Prince tried to ‘delete’ the Fear of the Lord

 

from God’s word

 

when he deliberately left out exegeting the concept

 

when he preached on the same text of Isaiah 11:1-3.

In a teaching session, Michael Brown said;

“It is not a servile fear.

 

1 John 4 tells us that fear has to do with punishment,

 

the type of servile fear; God’s out to get you.

 

God’s looking for one wrong thing that you do.

 

God wants to expose you.

 

God wants to humiliate you.

 

One wrong – caught you, caught you, caught you.

 

No, no, no.

 

That is a destructive fear.

 

There is a fear that has to do with punishment.

 

There is a servile fear.

 

And there is no fear in love.

 

Perfect love casts out that kind of fear.      

 

But there’s a holy fear, a reverential fear.

 

Jesus said Matthew 10:28 to His disciples,

 

don’t fear those who kill the body but can’t kill the soul.

 

Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

 

Jesus said that.

 

Hebrews 12:25-29, as everything around us is shaking

 

and there will be a final ultimate shaking

 

at the end of this age,

 

and the only thing that will last is the kingdom of God.

 

What does it say?

 

Let us then serve God acceptably with reverence and godly awe

 

for our God is a consuming fire.

 

Even a positive description of the Church

 

in the Book of Acts,

 

thriving and growing in Acts 9 (v31);

 

they were walking in the Fear of the Lord.

 

There is a healthy fear.

 

There is a reverential awe.

 

There’s a recognition for who He is and who we are.       

 

Friends, if our God is a consuming fire,

 

Deuteronomy 4:24 in the Old Testament,

 

Hebrews 12:29 in the New Testament,

 

same God, the same God.

 

Our heavenly Father, who so deeply loves us

 

through the blood of Jesus

 

and who receives us by His grace as His sons and daughters,

 

that God is a consuming fire.

 

You don’t play games with a consuming fire.

 

You don’t play games with a holy God.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Michael Brown asserts that the Fear of the Lord

 

is not just an Old Testament idea in Deuteronomy 4:24,

 

but it is also a New Testament reality

 

in Hebrews 12:29, Matthew 10:28 and Acts 9:31.

 

Michael Brown also highlighted

 

what the fear of the Lord is not

 

– it is not a servile or slavish fear.

 

This was also highlighted by Joseph Prince in his sermons.

 

But, there again, Joseph Prince has told a half-truth.

 

While Joseph Prince told the half-truth

 

that the Fear of the Lord is not servile or slavish fear,

 

he craftily hides the other half of the truth from you

 

that the New Covenant teaching on the Fear of the Lord

 

goes beyond worship to actually fearing God.

 

A case in point is Acts 9:31.

 

In a teaching session, Peter Tan-Chi said;

to view the 1-minute video:

 

“Today, many people don’t understand the Fear of the Lord.

 

We like to focus on the love of God,

 

which is very important.

 

But the Bible talks about the reality of the Fear of the Lord;

 

it is a healthy fear.

 

It is not the idea of you shudder;

 

you’re scared of God.

 

No, but it has the idea of you don’t want to displease Him.

 

You honour Him.

 

You know the consequences of disobeying Him.

 

So, this idea of fear is very healthy.

 

The Bible often talks about the double motivation,

 

the dual motivation of the Christian life.

 

Love and the fear of God.

 

In the Old Testament,

 

we are commanded to love God and to fear Him.

 

In the New Testament,

 

we are commanded to love God and to fear Him.      

 

What about you?

 

Do you have a healthy Fear of the Lord?

 

Do you have love for the Lord?

 

These are not in opposition;

 

they go together.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

By Peter Tan-Chi’s teaching

 

that we need to both love God and fear Him,  

 

Joseph Prince’s half-truth teaching is again exposed.

 

While Joseph Prince teaches that we are to love God,

 

he teaches against fearing Him.  

 

Peter Tan-Chi’s teaching that we are to fear God

 

in both the Old and New Testaments

 

has exposed Joseph Prince’s doctrine

 

that we are no longer required to fear God

 

in the Old Testament way

 

as the fear of God for New Covenant believers

 

is now reduced to just worshipping Him.

 

In ‘Exposition of Romans Chapter 11, To God’s Glory,’

 

Martyn Lloyd-Jones said:

 

“Let me say finally that every failure

 

to realize the truth of Romans 11:22

 

leads to a lack of godliness,

 

a lack of ‘the fear of the Lord’.

 

It leads to a lightness, a glibness, a superficiality, a self-contentment,

 

and finally, this ugly boastfulness.

 

… How often do you hear people talking about ‘the fear of the Lord’?

 

But, you see,

 

those are the terms that are used in the Bible.

 

Take for instance in that most lyrical book,

 

the Book of the Acts of the Apostles;

 

I read this in chapter 9 and verse 31:

 

‘Then had the churches rest

 

throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria,

 

and were edified;

 

and walking in the fear of the Lord,

 

and the comfort of the Holy Ghost,

 

were multiplied’.

 

Why is this so true of us today,

 

that there is not much evidence

 

of ‘the fear of the Lord’?

 

We all must be bright and breezy,

 

back slapping and happy.

 

That is not in the Bible!

 

‘The fear of the Lord’.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Martyn Lloyd-Jones has rightly taught

 

that the Fear of the Lord

 

is taught in the New Testament in Acts 9:31.

 

This has nothing to do with worshipping God per se

 

that Joseph Prince tries to deceive us with

 

but fearing Him.

 

In ‘A Merciful and Faithful High Priest, Studies in the Book of Hebrews,’

 

Martyn Lloyd-Jones said:

 

“Noah believed God about the flood,

 

and then we are told

 

that he was “moved with fear.”

 

What a wonderful statement that is.

 

“Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet,

 

moved with fear …” (Heb. 11:7).

 

This does not mean a craven fear.

 

“Perfect love casteth out fear” (1 John 4:18).

 

But there is a right kind of fear.

 

What does the statement in Hebrews mean?

 

Noah was given a realization, vaguely and dimly,

 

of the greatness of the glory

 

and the holiness and the purity of God.

 

The trouble with us is that we do not fear God.

 

“There is no fear of God before his eyes,”

 

says the psalmist (Ps. 36:1).

 

… We are told about the early Christians in Acts 9:31,

 

“Then had the churches rest…

 

and walking in the fear of the Lord,

 

and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost,

 

were multiplied.”

 

“Walking in the fear of the Lord.”

 

That is Christianity.

 

Or listen to Paul again:

 

“Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord,

 

we persuade men” (2 Cor. 5:11).

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

2 Corinthians 5:11 NASB

 

11 Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord,

 

we persuade people…

 

Martyn Lloyd-Jones highlighted the fact

 

that Paul had, in fact, taught on the Fear of the Lord

 

in Acts 9:31 and 1 Corinthians 5:11.  

 

There is no indication

 

that Paul was alluding to the worship of God

 

in both of these passages

 

that Joseph Prince would have us believe.

 

Since Paul taught against Joseph Prince

 

on the Fear of the Lord,

 

he ought to be ashamed of himself

 

for lying that Paul was his mentor

 

whom he had learned all his grace theology from.

Job 28:28.

 

“And to man God said,

 

‘Behold, the fear of the Lord,

 

is wisdom.’”

 

True wisdom is inseparable

 

from the Fear of the Lord.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

One of Joseph Prince frequent themes of his grace theology

 

is that we must have the wisdom of God.

 

If true wisdom is inseparable from the Fear of the Lord

 

that Derek Prince asserts,

 

the wisdom that Joseph Prince claims to possess and teaches

 

is nothing but Pseudo-wisdom

 

as he teaches against the Fear of the Lord.

 

How could Joseph Prince be said to possess true wisdom

 

when he constantly teaches that we are not to fear God?

“Proverbs 10 verse 27 says this,

 

“The fear of the LORD prolongs days,

 

But the years of the wicked will be shortened.”

 

So, listen, if you have the Fear of the Lord in your life

 

you will live longer than you would have without it.

 

Doesn’t tell you how long you will live,

 

but you will live longer than you would have lived

 

without the Fear of the Lord in your life.

 

And I’ve lived a long life

 

and I need some more years of life

 

because my job on earth is not finished.

 

And I tell you I’m very careful

 

to cultivate the Fear of the Lord

 

because it prolongs life.

 

Who would turn that down?

 

The only people who would turn that down

 

are people who are totally unbelieving or totally ignorant.

 

You cannot afford to live without the Fear of the Lord.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Derek Prince brought to our attention

 

that the condition of long life

 

is the Fear of the Lord:

 

Proverbs 10:27 NLT

 

Fear of the Lord lengthens one’s life,

 

but the years of the wicked are cut short.

 

Since Joseph Prince has not even met the condition

 

of fearing God

 

because he teaches against it,

 

how can he be qualified to teach on long life

 

and inherit such a blessing

 

in the first place?  

 

Joseph Prince’s claim that he would live a long life to 120

 

is pure garbage that is fit for the dumps.

For 10 years, I ate, slept and shit on Joseph Prince’s sermon

 

in my MP3 player.

 

One day, I found out that I couldn’t listen anymore,

 

not even 5 minutes…

 

I thought it was a demon attack, but no.

 

I only realised that it was God

Charles Spurgeon:

 

“I cannot endure false doctrine,

 

however neatly it may be put before me…

 

It makes me indignant when I hear another gospel

 

put before the people with enticing words,

 

by men who would fain make merchandise of souls;

 

and I marvel at those

 

who have soft words for such deceivers.”

 

In Galatians 1:8-9, Paul twice pronounced God’s curse

 

upon those who preached another gospel (like Joseph Prince’s edition).

 

He didn’t say don’t judge them, love them.

 

But some New Creation Church members,

 

maybe indoctrinated and brainwashed,

 

paralysed in thinking, would say, ‘Don’t judge.’

 

They had better judge themselves first.”

“When I was with New Creation Church many years ago,

 

which was my first church,

 

someone also says something like

 

‘it is good for beginners for a start…’

 

Looking back, I think that person should have told me upfront

 

and prevented me from the wrong teachings,

 

and wasted my life on this spiritual poison.

 

Thanks to Rev George for standing up

 

and speaking the truth.”

 

@lindakoo5221

 

“Thank you very much, Rev George Ong,

As bornagain Christians,

“Conclusion is we live in this kiasee society, so naturally

 

all those useless church leaders

 

from the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS)

 

are scared of Joseph Prince

therefore, dare not take appropriate action against him.”

@edmundsim6251

 

“@lindsaylim5806 

 

That’s also what I am thinking of as well.

 

When they read the Bible

 

and it doesn’t match what Jesus is saying,

 

don’t they find it so strange?

 

They really have no fear of the Lord?

 

They claim to be disciple of Christ

 

and the same disciple of Christ as us,

 

but it seems that it is another discipleship

 

which is a counterfeit one

 

– wolves in sheep’s clothing.”

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“@edmundsim6251

 

Years ago, we opened up The Bible

 

and showed it to our care group members

 

about errors in Joseph Prince’s teachings.

 

But we were shocked to hear they said

 

that the Bible were written by men

 

and therefore, there might be some errors

 

whereas Joseph Prince teaches accurately

 

and they rather stand with Joseph Prince’s teachings.

 

What else is still needed to say for us?

 

We left with much grief.”

“@edmundsim6251

 

No, they are not wolves

 

as these pastors still preach or teach accurately

 

but they did not lay down their lives for the sheep

 

as any true shepherd

 

(and also Jesus our Good Shepherd) 

 

will do so as taught in John 10.”

 

John 10.12-15.ESV

[12] He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. [13] He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. [14] I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, [15] just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.

is a false doctrine that is unfounded in the Bible.

Just shows that Joseph Prince is not God anointed

@lindsaylim5806

 

“@edmundsim6251 

 

Essentially, those who choose to stay on in New Creation Church

 

and follow Joseph Prince’s teachings

 

are narcissistic by nature.

 

His teachings are about how to make oneself great and significant

 

in the sight of men and not God.

 

It’s never about living for Christ and exalting Christ.

 

False gospel and false Christ promoted in New Creation Church.”

 

@1908great

 

“It’s about right and accurate teaching of the word

[9] The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, [10] and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. [11] Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, [12] in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

@tanky815

 

“When I was attending New Creation Church regularly,

 

I said to myself,

 

if what Joseph Prince preaches in the pulpit is not true,

 

there are so many Christians before me and well learned,

 

surely, he can’t spout nonsense week in week out?

 

He can smoke me, but wouldn’t someone step out

 

to point out the inaccuracies

 

if what he preaches is incorrect?

 

It didn’t happen until so many years later;

 

thank you, Rev George Ong!

 

Now I am beginning to think was I being hinted

 

when someone told me why don’t I read the Bible myself.”

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“@tanky815

 

I had a similar experience while in New Creation Church.

 

To me, at that time, I was walking by my sight.

 

Since the church is so big and well-known internationally

 

Therefore, it should be the correct gospel.

 

Yet, within me, I had many questions to enquire

 

because of unexplained teachings of the word

 

by Joseph Prince and his other pastors as well.

 

When I finally took the courage to ask my care group leader,

 

it was immediately interrupted by him

 

and were told my question will be privately discussed later.

 

I was later asked

 

why did I want to question Joseph Prince’s teachings?

 

It was from that time I knew something was amiss

 

and all the while it was the Holy Spirit convicting me

 

to wake up and return to God.

 

Today, if anyone here also experiences the same convictions,

 

know that it is the goodness of the Lord

 

that wants to lead us to repentance

 

so that we can return to Him from our rebellion.”

 

@user-hd7qv8dx7x

 

“In reality, it’s not happening in New Creation Church.

 

Very few miracles.

 

Same as Benny Hinn crusades.

@lindsaylim5806

 

“Joseph Prince should check his own leaders and faithful followers. 

 

How many, despite following the instructions

 

to take Holy Communion regularly

 

for health and vanity reasons, ended up sick,

 

needing surgery and in and out of hospital

 

in the last 5 years?

 

Please have the guts to check

 

and see if Holy Communion is indeed working

 

for these gullible followers?”

 

@vijayrem-mn6id

 

“In his book, Joseph Prince wrote that the Holy Communion 

 

“is more powerful than any medicine, antibiotic, or medical procedure”. 

 

The question arises

 

why didn’t he or his coterie declare to the world,

 

boldly and loudly, during the pandemic

 

that Holy Communion is more powerful than vaccination?

 

They could have constantly and insistently

 

reminded the world of their teaching. 

 

That could have been a golden opportunity

 

for him to seize the crown of glory

 

and show the world he is THE true apostle and prophet.

 

Why did he forsake that opportunity?

 

In fact, one of the New Creation Church preachers

 

did mention he contracted covid.

 

Most likely, he had forgotten at that moment

 

his master’s Holy Communion preaching,

 

unwittingly poking holes in his teaching.

 

A crisis does indeed test and reveal his sincerity.”

 

@WordsofGodThe

 

“If you still think that Joseph Prince is a great ‘disciple’

 

or the ‘disciple whom Jesus loved’,

 

please hear from his own mouth what he has to say here:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlDJEF7PHGo&t=13s

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QugpCLY9Jb8&t=12s

 

I don’t think we need to say much to CONCLUDE that:

 

1. he is not a disciple anymore,

 

2. and, he is not saved at all,

 

He has said it all from these 2 videos

 

that he can’t follow and won’t follow the teaching of Jesus,

 

and that he will change His words,

 

remove (or hinder) the conviction of the Holy Spirit,

 

and lie against the Holy Spirit.

 

What other proofs do we need to confirm that he is an antiChrist?

 

Obviously, until now he can’t answer and won’t answer

 

any question or criticism raised against his lies or heresies here.

 

He can only keep quiet

 

and hope that his fans will never check any social media

 

that expose him.

 

However, I think God has given us enough proofs

 

to decide if we should follow an antiChrist (like him),

 

or follow Jesus Christ.

 

Ultimately, salvation is BY HIS GRACE;

 

it is also BY OUR CHOICE!

 

Now what is your choice?”

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“What does the Bible say about False Prophets?

 

God speaks harshly against false prophets,

 

occult practices, and other means of sorcery.

 

God describes a false prophet

 

as one who “presumes to speak in My name

 

anything I have not commanded,

 

or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods” (Deuteronomy 18:20).

 

In Jeremiah 14:14,

 

God says these evildoers prophesy lies,

 

offering “false visions, divinations, idolatries,

 

and the delusions of their own minds.”

 

I know Joseph Prince has denied himself as a prophet many times.

 

He wants us to believe a pastor like him

 

is different from a prophet in the OT.

 

Now let’s see what we can understand a prophet roll

 

and what it does.

 

“Prophet” in Hebrew = nabi

 

Strong’s Concordance

nabi: a SPOKESMAN , SPEAKER, PROPHET

 

Original Word: נָבִיא

Part of Speech: Noun Masculine

Transliteration: nabi

Phonetic Spelling: (naw-bee’)

Definition: a spokesman, speaker, prophet

 

Joseph Prince is hiding many truths from his congregation

 

while he washes his hands clean

 

thinking he could conveniently get away with it

 

by simply denying he is a prophet.

 

To God, no matter how many times

 

or how hard Joseph Prince has washed his hands

 

thinking he and the rest of his pastors

 

could get away from these evil lies,

 

it shall never be cleaned.

 

It is just temporarily covered up.

 

Those who still wants to follow his teachings

 

despite so many warnings, solid, proven testimonies

 

and solid evidence from Godly pastors

 

then they shall also fall into the same destruction

 

God has prepared for them.

 

Therefore, do not let our hearts be hardened

 

when God is speaking kindly to us to Repent

 

from our wicked ways.

 

Now there’s still time before it is too late.”

 

@WordsofGodThe

 

“Joseph Prince says that the Holy Communion

 

is the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qe43TFojh-E&t=601s and therefore, you can take it like it is a MEDICINE

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNNMHaol1gE&t=357s

 

Obviously, he wants you to believe it totally;

 

otherwise, why would he take Botox,

 

take health supplements, take hair treatments,

 

take advice from his hair stylists,

 

take branded clothing and shoes,

 

take good care of himself to look young,

 

and even take ‘cat walk’ to the pulpit?

 

Obviously, he takes a lot more ‘self-effort’

 

to ensure that he always looks good

 

every time he walks to his pulpit.

 

However, do you know that immediately

 

after he promoted his FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH,

 

he said that you must still take medicines,

 

see the doctors, or listen to the advice of the doctors

 

WHEN YOU GET SICK?

 

What???

 

It’s a shock to me when I heard that.

 

I thought if we really have the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

 

or a MEDICINE that can cure all kinds of sickness,

 

we should never get sick and never need to see any doctor.

 

Obviously, he is lying to you

 

when he tries to ‘promote’ his FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH to you.

 

Let’s assume that you went to a health product company

 

and really bought such a FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

 

or MEDICINE at an exorbitant price

 

from a good-looking salesman

 

who convinced you that he has the youthful look

 

because he drinks it too,

 

would you just drink it occasionally?

 

No, of course, you would want to take it every day

 

because you were totally convinced by him

 

and you bought it with an exorbitant price.

 

Now, please think again.

 

What if that salesman tells you (immediately after you bought it)

 

that you must still continue to take your medication

 

because of your conditions

 

(e.g. high blood pressure, heart attacks, diabetes, or old age symptoms)

 

and that you must see your doctor

 

if anything goes wrong too?

 

I don’t know what you will think,

 

but I will just throw his FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

 

into the dustbin and ask for a refund.

 

Similarly, if a preacher told me that what he preaches

 

is a FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

 

and I believed him totally

 

and paid an exorbitant sum of money (to his ‘God’),

 

I would tell him that his ‘God’ is a liar

 

and ask for a refund too.

 

Of course, he would tell us

 

that we should go and get the refund from his ‘God’;

 

not from him.

 

So, in the end, we have only ourselves to be blamed

 

when such a ‘snake-oil seller’

 

or false preacher knew how to cover his back

 

and shift all the blame to his ‘God’

 

when his ‘God’ could not even perform the miracle

 

or deliver the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH effects

 

as promised in the ‘sales’.

 

However, I think it is still possible to do something

 

because, for real commercial transactions,

 

we can just bring it up to CASE (The Consumers Association of Singapore

 

which is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation

 

that is committed towards promoting consumer interest).

 

However, for the cases

 

which do not involve commercial deals or direct cheating,

 

we can only pray that there is such an ‘association’ or ‘council’

 

which is similar to CASE and that they are willing to help us.”

“I may be a Christian for 40 years

 

and in your eyes, I don’t mind being a non born again Christian

 

and one that is with the flesh,

 

if it means exposing a false teacher like Joseph Prince

 

that is corrupting and twisting the words of Jesus Christ and his Apostles.

 

When Jesus went to teach in his father’s place (the synagogue),

 

he was furious that the merchants

 

had turned the temple grounds

 

into a place for the merchants.

 

New Creation Church did the same precise thing at Star Vista.

 

With the donations, New Creation Church

 

didn’t build God a house

 

and instead seek to invest and profit from it.

 

Not only that, Joseph Prince didn’t even keep the hall for sermons

 

as a consecrated place for the Lord alone

 

but he rent it out to the Drag Queen.

 

You don’t mix Devil Teaching with Christians

 

that feel grievous for Jesus

 

that our Lord’s teaching has been so twisted

 

into a counterfeit Bible

 

for you are not of Christ

 

when you are defending false teachers.

 

Whether we are flesh or not,

 

it doesn’t change the tongue-twisting nature of New Creation Church

 

and the people that it corrupted with its new teachings

 

against the right teaching of Jesus and his Apostles.

 

False teachers such as Joseph Prince

 

are Satan’s agents to lead people away from Jesus.

 

They seem to preach Jesus, the gospel and the Spirit,

 

but in reality, they are seducing people

 

with a counterfeit Jesus, gospel and spirit.

 

In other words, it is the doctrine of the demons.

 

By denying sound doctrines of the Bible

 

and to go into another version of the Bible,

 

can you still call yourself a follower of Christ and our brothers?

 

Despites so many evidences?

 

Joseph Prince has been using the Lord’s name in vain.

 

In his numerous sermons,

 

he often says, the Lord says to me, the Lord says to me….

 

do you think it is true?

 

Where are the signs to show

 

that he is a true prophet

 

and that the Lord really says to him?

He reminds me of Lucifer who thinks he’s smarter than God.

 

Changed all the original meaning of the Bible to his Satanic heresies.

 

That is why Joseph Prince doesn’t encourage New Creation Church folks

 

to read their own Bibles. 

 

He behaves as the ‘un-holy spirit’

 

for New Creation Church folks

 

and interpret all the heresies to poison them.

 

True believers depend on the Holy Spirit

So, it’s plain to see New Creation Church

Joseph Prince Vs Ps Jason Lim, Rev Kong Hee, Dr Roland Chia & George; courage needed to contain Joseph Prince – By Rev George Ong

 

Announcement No 1

 

Joseph Prince has not preached for the last 3 Sundays.

 

My guess is that he will again not preach this Sunday.

 

Announcement No 2

 

Note there are 2 videos on Ps Jason Lim

 

and 1 video each

 

on Rev Kong Hee, Dr Roland Chia, George Ong

 

and Joseph Prince.

 

Don’t miss the excellent write-ups

 

of Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Michael Brown

 

See the Appendix for the Featured YouTube comments.

 

Excerpt from the Article:

 

In ‘Romans, An Exposition of Chapter 10 Saving Faith,’

 

Martyn Lloyd-Jones said:

 

“In the past, heretics

 

were condemned by the church and excommunicated.

 

And it is because the church does not do the same thing today,

 

that she is in such a parlous, helpless and useless condition.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

In the light of what Martyn Lloyd-Jones had said,

 

why is the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS)

 

still not acting against Joseph Prince,

 

allowing a heretic to remain under her membership,

 

and letting him to continue to deceive and devour the sheep?

 

(This article was also sent to Rev Dr Ngoei Foong Nghian, General Secretary, National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) office, and for the attention of the Executive Committee Members.)

It was timely that Glenn Fong

 

an Ex New Creation Church member

 

from Gospel Light Christian Church,

 

alerted me to a sermon preached by his Pastor,

 

Pastor Jason Lim on 9 June 2024, last Sunday, 3 days ago.

 

I have featured Pastor Jason Lim

 

on my website several times previously.

 

He has spoken against Joseph Prince for preaching heresies.

 

In another sermon,

 

Pastor Jason Lim stated that the Prosperity Gospel of Joseph Prince

 

“… is so far removed from the true Gospel of Jesus Christ;

 

it is a damnable heresy.”

 

This time, Pastor Jason Lim has again highlighted

 

the false Prosperity Gospel that Joseph Prince preaches.

 

But because of ‘time and space’,

 

this issue of the Prosperity Gospel

 

raised by Pastor Jason Lim

 

would not be dealt with in this article,

 

but it may be covered in a future article.

 

In the same sermon on 9 June 2024, 3 days ago,

 

Pastor Jason Lim also spoke against

 

the false teaching of Joseph Prince

 

of treating the Holy Communion

 

as a superstitious voodoo act for healing.  

 

What is more significant is that Pastor Jason Lim

 

also stressed that we must have the courage

 

to expose these false teachings

 

and false teachers, such as Joseph Prince.

 

That just as Paul had the courage to confront Peter

 

(not that Peter was into false teachings

 

but his cowardly behaviour in Galatians 2:14,

 

had lent credence to the false teachings of the circumcision party),

 

so must the Church follow the example of Paul.

 

In the sermon on 9 June 2024, 3 days ago,

 

Pastor Jason Lim said;

to view the 2-minute-30-second video:

 

“But Peter when he stepped out of line,

 

was rebuked by Paul

 

because Paul himself was committed to the gospel.

 

That was his loyalty, the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

It was Vince Havner who said,

 

“The devil is not fighting religion.

 

He’s too smart for that.

 

But he’s producing a counterfeit Christianity,

 

so much like the real one that good Christians

 

are afraid to speak out against it.”    

 

To defend the gospel, we also need courage.

 

Now, you must understand the context here.

 

Peter is the most famous Christian on planet earth then, I think.

 

Because he was the one who walk on water.

 

He was the one whom Jesus said specifically,

 

‘Feed my sheep,’ 3 times.

 

He was the one who preached at Pentecost

 

and 3,000 souls got saved.

 

He was the one who went to Cornelius’ house,

 

open the door of the gospel to the Gentiles.

 

He is the top dog in Christianity.

 

And who is Paul?

 

Paul is a great Apostle.

 

Yes, he is, eventually.

 

But maybe at this stage,

 

we are not sure exactly

 

when Acts 11 time or Acts 15 time, regardless,

 

Paul is not as famous or influential as we know him today.

 

So, it’s almost like a lower-rank guy,

 

if I may put it that way,

 

not so famous guy,

 

standing up to this famous Peter,

 

and saying,

 

“You are wrong.

 

You are condemned.

 

You are to be rebuked.”

 

Wow, but that’s what is needed to defend the gospel.

 

The church is in trouble if the church,

 

the people of the church,

 

the brothers and sisters in Christ,

 

are afraid to speak out against false teachings.

 

It doesn’t matter who that preacher is.

 

Can be myself. Can be someone else.

 

But we should never cower in fear, saying,

 

“O, because he’s a pastor,

 

even though I know it’s clearly out of line with the gospel,

 

I dare not say.”

 

But if gospel realities are misrepresented,

 

then we need that courage

 

because we all are responsible for the defence of the gospel.”

 

(End of video.)

 

I fully agree with Pastor Jason Lim

 

that the Church needs courage

 

to confront and contend against false teachings,

 

particularly that of Joseph Prince.

 

In a teaching session, George Ong said;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 5-minute video:

 

“We did not give in to them for a moment,

 

so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.

 

Now, this is just as an aside.

 

Paul said we did not give in to them.

 

Who are the them?

 

The false teacher who pushes in the circumcision issue,

 

for a moment.

 

Another version states we did not give in to them for an inch.

 

That’s what I am doing.

 

We cannot give an inch to Joseph Prince.

 

He’s a false teacher.

 

You must fight it all the way.

 

So, when I am following the example of Paul,

 

people get agitated, how come I am so.

 

Of course, they do not know the scriptures.

 

They do not know the Old Testament

 

treats false prophets very seriously.

 

They were sentenced to death.

 

Even those people who follow them.

 

And you know, I don’t have the time to show you,

 

you go back and read.

 

Jesus, Paul, Peter all treat false teachers very seriously.

 

That’s why Paul pronounced a double curse,

 

you’ve read right just now,

 

on those who preach false teaching.

 

And Paul here again,

 

(said) we did not give in to them for a moment.

 

That’s what I am doing.

 

And yet people will say,

 

how come he does that,

 

when they haven’t even do what the scriptures tell them

 

to contend for the faith and against heresies.      

 

Another, Galatians 2:11-16, still Galatians;

 

When Cephas, this is Peter, when Cephas came to Antioch,

 

I opposed him to his face because he stood condemned.

 

Now, here is what’s happening is that Paul,

 

a junior was confronting his senior, Peter.

 

And who is Peter?

 

An Apostle.

 

This is serious, you know.

 

Paul had to confront an Apostle, who’s a senior, publicly.

 

It was a public rebuke

 

because Peter, he was scared of the circumcision group.

 

He was afraid of the circumcision group,

 

who (was) trying to push circumcision

 

as a requirement for salvation.

 

Paul cannot take it,

 

so, he had to publicly rebuke another Apostle.

 

We have to admit that Paul was right,

 

Peter was wrong in this matter.

 

Now, think with me;

 

if Paul had the guts and courage

 

to publicly rebuke, reprimand a senior apostle,

 

why is the church so scared

 

about rebuking Joseph Prince by name?

 

Something is wrong.

 

When I do the right thing, they say;

 

I say, I’m just following Paul, Mah.

 

He rebuked a senior Apostle for he (Peter) nearly strayed;

 

Joseph Prince is a heretic,

 

what’s happening?

 

Why is it nobody dare to even utter his name?

 

Something is wrong.    

 

So, if Paul had the courage to confront Peter publicly

 

because the gospel is at stake,

 

Joseph Prince is clearly a false teacher.

 

You know why because people don’t want to say anything

 

for years, years, he built up his influence.

 

Years, he built up his influence,

 

10,000, 5,000, 10,000, 15, 20, 30, 34,000,

 

the biggest church in Singapore.

 

And bigger than all the denominations

 

except the Methodists.

 

The Methodists, 40 over thousand. 34.

 

What is worse is that

 

because the National Leadership in Singapore

 

and all the Pastors, including myself,

 

we don’t take corporate responsibility;

 

he (Joseph Prince) is our own backyard,

 

allowed it to be worse

 

and influenced the world, everywhere, I can tell you.

 

You can check the number of clicks,

 

hundreds of thousands, millions of clicks.

 

And yet still, Pastors don’t want to say anything.

 

I have to do something.

 

I can tell you there are many;

 

I met many spiritual leaders who are godly,

 

who are biblical,

 

who are expository experts preaching everywhere,

 

but that’s one thing is missing – guts.

 

Let me put it in a nicer way – courage.

 

They lack the courage to do what is necessary.

 

So that is why Joseph Prince has been allowed to flourish (unhindered)

 

until it’s very difficult, you know.

 

Those who have been influenced, brainwashed already.

 

No matter what you say,

 

I’m sure you have the experience,

 

no matter what you say, they will protect him.

 

They have been brainwashed.

 

So, we just have to do our part.

 

I don’t say the Singapore leadership don’t do anything;

 

I don’t do anything.

 

No.

 

I try to do something.

 

And I hope each one of you will do a bit more

 

because we know his false teaching.     

 

How I wish if the National Leadership of Singapore

 

would have stepped in earlier,

 

it would have clipped his wings, you see,

 

and then his influence would not have (been so massive);

 

now, I tell you, he (Joseph Prince) doesn’t care.

 

But that doesn’t mean we don’t care, you see.

 

We must do something.

 

We cannot do everything

 

but we have to do whatever we can.   

 

They don’t do anything

 

but does it mean I don’t do anything?

 

No.

 

I try to do something

 

because I am ultimately responsible to God.”

 

(End of video.)

 

Based on the severe reprimand of Paul against Peter,

 

supporters of Joseph Prince

 

and naïve believers and even unenlightened Pastors

 

would walk up to the Apostle Paul and say:

 

“Paul, would you cool it.

 

Why are you quarrelling with Peter just over doctrine?

 

Where is your love for Peter?

 

Why did you use social media to attack Peter, publicly?

 

Paul, please stop quarrelling with Peter.

 

The world is not interested in debates over doctrine

 

but they want to see your love for Peter. 

 

So, Paul would you stop quarrelling,

 

and by that,

 

the world will see that you really love Peter,

 

and they may come to know Christ

 

through your love for a fellow brother.”

 

You all know the story.

 

Paul himself had to courageously rebuke Peter by name publicly

 

(because he loves him),

 

when he began acting like a hypocrite

 

– as by Peter’s hypocritical action,

 

the gospel was in danger of being compromised (Gal 2:11-14).

Paul’s action in Galatians 2:11-14

 

demonstrated that the truth of the gospel

 

is even more important than the reputation of an apostle.

 

If Paul had the guts to rebuke Apostle Peter,

 

who is senior to him by name publicly

 

because the gospel was being threatened, 

 

how much more should we be uncompromising and courageous

 

to do the same with false teachers such as Joseph Prince,

 

who is not only corrupting the gospel,

 

but also leading the multitudes to hell?

 

And thank God for Martyn Lloyd-Jones,

 

in ‘An Exposition of Ephesians 5:18-6:9, Life in the Spirit,’

 

who said;

 

“A heretic was not allowed to remain in the church;

 

he was to be put out,

 

they were not to have fellowship with him…

 

Then you will remember

 

what we read in the second chapter of Galatians

 

about what Paul did to Peter.

 

Peter was not quite as clear in his mind,

 

and in his understanding, as Paul

 

over the question of eating with those

 

who had not been circumcised.

 

The Peter who had been so prominent

 

was wrong in his teaching at this point.

 

What did the Apostle Paul do?

 

Did he submit himself to Peter,

 

in the fear of Christ, and say,

 

‘Well, who am I to argue with Peter?

 

After all, he was one of the innermost three

 

in the circle that were with Christ.

 

I was never with Christ in the flesh;

 

I was then a blasphemer and a Pharisee.

 

Who am I to stand up against a great man like Peter?

 

I must just say nothing,

 

I must listen in silence and pray;

 

and then we must work together

 

in a spirit of amity and cooperation?’

 

How monstrous!

 

On the contrary, Paul says,

 

‘I withstood him to the face’.

 

He corrected Peter in public

 

because Peter was wrong,

 

and the whole future of the Church was in jeopardy…

 

‘Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of Christ’

 

does not mean that you accommodate yourself

 

to wrong teaching and doctrine,

 

that you say nothing

 

when falsehood is being propagated.

 

No!

 

For that is a denial of all the New Testament.”

 

In ‘Romans, An Exposition of Chapter 10 Saving Faith,’

 

Martyn Lloyd-Jones said:

 

“In the past, heretics

 

were condemned by the church and excommunicated.

 

And it is because the church does not do the same thing today,

 

that she is in such a parlous, helpless and useless condition.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

In the light of what Martyn Lloyd-Jones had said,

 

why is the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS)

 

still not acting against Joseph Prince,

 

allowing a heretic to remain under her membership,

 

and letting him to continue to deceive and devour the sheep?

 

Let me quote what Michael Brown wrote in his book, ‘Jezebel’s War with America’:

 

“THE PROPHETS MUST SPEAK!

 

It was one thing to be silenced during the days of Jezebel.

 

She was literally killing the prophets,

 

and I don’t imagine her henchmen cared about how

 

they went about their bloody business.

 

This was brutal work, and the suffering was acute.

 

If you did stand up and speak out,

 

you could be dead within the hour,

 

if not on the spot.

 

That’s why godly Obadiah worked behind the scenes

 

to take two groups of fifty prophets

 

and hide them in caves, where he provided for them.

 

To venture out of those caves meant a very probable death.

 

To venture out and speak meant a certain death (See 1 Kings 18:1-14).

 

Again, this does not excuse the silence of the prophets,

 

and not all were silent.

 

Elijah took his stand at the risk of his own life.

 

But at least it’s understandable why they were on the run.

 

To speak was to be killed.

 

Guaranteed.

 

This will certainly shut some mouths.

 

But today in America

 

who is putting a gun to our heads

 

or a knife to our throats? (I mean this literally.)

 

Who is threatening us with death if we speak?

 

And yet so many of us are silent.

 

So many have retreated.

 

So many have given way to a spirit of fear.

 

So many have made a bargain with the devil,

 

basically saying,

 

“I won’t bother you if you don’t bother me.

 

I’ll stay in my nice, safe, popular lane,

 

and you stay away from my family.”

 

I’m talking about preachers.

 

About pastors.

 

About prophets.

 

I’m talking about local leaders and national leaders.

 

Thank God for those with holy backbone.

 

Thank God for those

 

who are willing to pay the price to take a stand.

 

Thank God for those…

 

who walk in courage, who don’t back down.

 

From the heart, I thank God for each of you,

 

and I applaud you in the Lord.

 

Stay strong, my friends!

 

We need you on the front lines.

 

But all too many are in self-imposed spiritual exile.

 

All too many have made a calculated decision

 

to stay out of the fray.

 

All too many have put outward success

 

before inward obedience.

 

All too many have taken the path of least resistance.

 

This cannot continue!

 

… It’s time we arise and speak!

 

It’s time we overcome the fear of rejection,

 

the fear of conflict, and the fear of loss…

 

… And to all my colleagues with national platforms:

 

America needs your voice now more than ever.

 

Take up the cross and follow Jesus afresh.

 

Don’t let ratings and reviews dictate your choices.

 

Get a fresh message from heaven,

 

raise your voice, and speak.

 

The prophets must no longer be silenced!

 

… One lesson,

 

which is particularly important for Christian leaders,

 

is this:

 

don’t avoid confrontation.

 

We often try so hard to be nice.

 

At all costs, we do not want to offend.

 

But sometimes confrontation is necessary,

 

and there are scores of biblical examples for this.

 

Nathan the prophet confronted King David (2 Sam. 12).

 

Paul confronted Peter (Gal. 2).

 

… A second lesson is this:

 

don’t be a slave of public opinion.

 

… But all too often, as Christian leaders,

 

we are more concerned with human opinion than divine opinion,

 

more wanting to please other people than to please the Lord.

 

And all too often, we tell people what they want to hear

 

rather than what they need to hear.

 

This not only hurts the flock; it hurts us as well.

 

Let us take heed to these words of Dr. Martin Luther King,

 

“The ultimate measure of a man

 

is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience

 

but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Michael Brown’s words have indeed searched us to the depths of our being.

 

So, let us not be weary about speaking against and warning others

 

about this crafty man called Joseph Prince,

 

who hails from our own backyard in Singapore,

 

who is not only a serial liar, a serial double-talker, a serial hypocrite,

 

but worst of all, he is also an unrepentant heretic,

 

whose heresies are leading droves of people to the lake of fire.

 

In a video, Joseph Prince said;

“And if you have partaken,

 

believe that you’re getting stronger, healthier

 

and even younger.

 

I believe the Lord’s supper

 

is the fountain of youth that men are looking for.”

 

In a sermon preached on 9 June 2024, 3 days ago,

 

Pastor Jason Lim said:

“For centuries, Christians, Evangelical Christians

 

have understood that Lord’s supper is the meal

 

that Christians have together to celebrate Christ

 

and what He’s done for us on the cross.

 

And how that meal is a remembrance

 

of how the sacrifice of Jesus inaugurates the New Covenant.

 

But recently, there’s someone who teaches

 

that Lord’s supper is for your medical health.

 

Lord’s supper is for you to get well, physical, bodily.

 

I’ll show you a book that is available today.

 

In this book, he (Joseph Prince) writes:   

 

“As long as we are here on earth,

 

our bodies are subject to the ageing process,

 

which is part of the divine sentence.

 

All our bodies are decaying every day.

 

Our brain cells are dying daily.

 

The Holy Communion is God’s solution

 

for us to offset the decay.

 

And even your friends will see the results.

 

They will begin to ask you,

 

“Hey, why do you seem to look younger and younger?

 

You never seem to age!”

 

I get that quite a bit.

 

But that’s not because

 

I keep the Lord’s supper thing, alright.

 

That’s totally not the point.

 

“… the Lord’s Supper is how God helps us

 

offset this process of aging and walk in divine health.

 

Every time you partake,

 

you are reversing the effects

 

of the curse or divine judgment.”

 

I know someone who actually says when he has nose bleed,

 

he just takes the Lord’s supper until the bleeding stops.

 

I say, ‘Please, Lah, press your nose first.’

 

But that’s how they have been taught

 

and they buy Lord’s supper to take at home.

 

But the Lord’s supper is actually a communion with brethren,

 

it’s not taken at home.

 

And it is certainly not a superstitious act

 

to get your bodily health right.

 

It’s about remembering Jesus and what He did for us

 

at the cross to save us from our sins.

 

The Lord’s supper that is meant to be a celebration of the gospel

 

is now turned into a superstitious voodoo act.”

 

In a teaching session, Kong Hee said;

“The Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion,

 

is now used as a means to receive healing and blessing

 

for the individual.

 

Many Charismatic Christians in Asia,

 

many in Singapore, in Malaysia, in Indonesia,

 

and I understand also in the US.

 

They are teaching that one must take the Lord’s supper,

 

many times a day, by himself, by herself,

 

to ensure healing and health,

 

protection from evil spirits and curses.

 

I even hear that they are taking it

 

as an elixir for youth and longevity.

 

There are some who are teaching

 

that the more you partake of the Lord’s supper,

 

the younger you will look.

 

So, it’s now common these days to see Christians

 

carrying little pegs of wafer and little plastic cups of wine

 

or grape juice in their bags, in their handbags

 

everywhere they go,

 

to ensure that many times a day, at least 3 times a day;

 

they can partake of it by themselves

 

and live under constant blessing and grace.”

 

In a sermon, Dr Roland Chia said;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 1-minute video:

  

“A representative of this group

 

has also presented an erroneous understanding

 

of the Holy Communion.

 

According to him (Joseph Prince),

 

eating the bread and drinking the wine

 

will guarantee good health and a long life.

 

In fact, he even recommends

 

that those who are sick

 

to partake the Holy Communion 3 times a day,

 

like taking medicine.

 

Needless to say,

 

this is a distortion of the sacrament of Holy Communion,

 

which is meant to point us

 

to what Christ has done for our eternal salvation.

 

At the hands of this preacher (Joseph Prince),

 

Holy Communion, has become an antibiotic or an elixir.

 

Those who peddle such doctrine

 

are offering strange fire (Lev 10:1-7).”

 

Although Dr Roland Chia

 

didn’t mention the name of the preacher in his sermon,

 

but if you ask him,

 

he will not hesitate to tell you

 

that the person he is referring to

 

is Joseph Prince.

 

If you happen to know Dr Roland Chia,

 

please call him and see

 

if what I told you is true.

 

George Ong’s comments:

  

Joseph Prince has said many times over the pulpit

 

that the reason his critics are taking issue with his teachings

 

is that they are jealous of him and his ministry.

 

This is Joseph Prince’s ploy

 

to send the same message to his supporters

 

to repeat the same tune

 

in their criticisms of his critics.

 

And plenty of his supporters didn’t disappoint.

 

How so many kept singing the same chorus

 

that Joseph Prince’s critics are jealous of him.

 

But would you believe the following Singapore Ministers

 

who have spoken out against Joseph Prince over his heresies

 

and publicly declared that he is a heretic

 

were acting out of jealousy?

 

Pastor Jason Lim, Dr Roland Chia,

Bishop Ho Chee Sin, Bishop Kuan Kim Seng,

Rev Derek Hong, Rev Beh Soo Yeong,

Rev Tan Cheng Huat, Rev David Liew,

Rev Lawrence Yam, and many others…

 

Joseph Prince and his critics, please give us a break!

 

The discerning ones would know

 

Joseph Prince and his critics are merely using jealousy

 

as a convenient excuse to deflect from the real issue

 

and avoid answering all the true accusations

 

his critics have levelled against him

 

and his false teachings.

 
Joseph Prince and his critics

 

have deceptively framed the whole issue

 

as jealousy as a distraction, 

 

so he can get out of answering

 

all those specific accusations against him, 

 

that are based on the Bible 

 

and the hard facts 

 

of what he specifically said

 

and taught in his videos and books.

  

Let’s just assume (ONLY ASSUME) that ministers such as,

 

Pastor Jason Lim, Dr Roland Chia, Bishop Ho Chee Sin, Bishop Kuan Kim Seng, Rev Derek Hong, Rev Beh Soo Yeong, Rev David Liew, Rev Tan Cheng Huat, Rev Lawrence Yam, myself, and many others,

 

who criticised Joseph Prince’s teachings

 

are really jealous of Joseph Prince’s success,

 

does it change the fact

 

that Joseph Prince has falsely preached

 

that the Holy Communion

 

is to be used to bring about good health

 

and make one younger,

 

which no true preacher

 

throughout the centuries of the Christian Church

 

has ever preached?

 

Does it change the fact

 

that Joseph Prince is guilty of preaching so many false doctrines

 

that have been proven on this website?

 

Finally, a word for the courageous critics of Joseph Prince

 

and the misguided supporters of Joseph Prince.

 

In ‘Swindoll’s Living Insights, New Testament Commentary, Luke,’

 

Charles Swindoll wrote:

 

“Truth divides.

 

The fact is, truth does not unite people;

 

it divides people.

 

Truth unites people who desire truth,

 

but it stirs violence in the hearts of those who don’t.”

 

Rev George Ong

“I just stumbled on your videos.

 

Thank God.

 

I learn so much from you.

 

I always feel that Joseph Prince is so arrogant in his preaching.

 

I attended his services a few times

 

and wasn’t comfortable with his preaching.

 

Always left feeling so confused,

 

as I have been in Bible studies for many years.

 

Always more questions than answers,

 

but always giving him the benefit of doubt
