Joseph Prince preaches the heretical gospel that people can be saved by the law – By Rev George Ong (Dated 18 Jan 2024)
Joseph Prince’s 2024 New Creation Church Theme
‘The Year of Living in the Upper Room’
is a Joke
See Article 1 why it’s a joke.
Opening Shot to Joseph Prince:
“Make sure you mention Mr Pen, this Sunday, okay.
Don’t be a coward.
You must have guts.
Millions of your supporters are looking at you.
Never show that you are afraid of Mr Pen.
If you, with millions of fans,
can’t even handle an ordinary and mere Mr Pen,
you are no different from a terrified church mouse
– not Mickey Mouse, your favourite Prosperity Mouse.
Mr Pen is all ready to take you on for a …. not fight, lah,
or your body guards may Ham Tam (hammer) him, you know,
don’t fool around, ah.
Come on, be a man, and take Mr Pen on, this Sunday.
Let’s see whether Mr Pen’s God or your godfather, the old devil
is more powerful.
Hear from you.”

In a Sunday sermon aired on YouTube 4 days ago,
on 14 Jan 2024, Joseph Prince said;

“But primarily, the whole thing is the king has come,
presented Himself to Israel.
He’s the king of Israel, and He was rejected.
So that (Sermon on the Mount)
was the laws of His kingdom.
Had they received Jesus,
do you know the whole world be like paradise on earth.
But they rejected Him.
He had to come to them first because they are the covenant people.”
In the second sermon, Joseph Prince said;

“They know this
but the Sermon that Jesus preached in the Sermon on the Mount
is actually the laws,
the constitution of the Kingdom that He came to bring.
But have they received Jesus then,
the kingdom of God will have come to earth in Israel.
So that was the constitution of the kingdom.”
In the third sermon, Joseph Prince said;

“The Sermon on the Mount
is Jesus proclaiming the laws of the,
or the constitution of the kingdom
and the kingdom to come (what Jesus returns).”
By perusing these 3 videos, it is clear that
Joseph Prince teaches the perverse doctrine
that there are 2 salvation plans,
one for the Old Covenant people (Jews),
and one for the New Covenant saints,
and that the Old Covenant people (Jews)
could have been saved by the law.
This is because Joseph said that the Sermon on the Mount
is under the Old Covenant of law for Israel
and not under the New Covenant of grace for the Church.
Joseph Prince also said that had the Jews received Jesus then,
and His Sermon on the Mount,
the kingdom of God or the gospel,
which would have come to Israel,
would be based on law, not grace.
What this means is that Joseph Prince is teaching
that Israel, the Old Covenant people
could have been saved by law, not grace.
This is preposterous!
The truth is, no one is saved by the law.
Regardless of whether we belong to the Old or New Covenant people,
we are all saved by grace.
Was Abraham, an Old Covenant saint saved by law or grace?
Was David, another Old Covenant saint saved by law or grace?
Needless to say – they are both saved by grace.
Salvation has always been by grace through faith,
not by the works of the law (Gal 2:16).
Even the Old Testament people who were under the Mosaic Law
were saved by grace through faith (Rom 4:3, 6-8, 16).
Joseph Prince also taught
that when Jesus returns (His kingdom to come),
the Jews would acknowledge Him as the Messiah,
but they would be saved by the law
when they accept Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount
as the constitution or laws of the kingdom.
The truth is Israel will never be saved by the law,
as Joseph Prince falsely teaches.
With that in mind,
Joseph Prince is shockingly promulgating 2 salvation plans,
one for Israel and one for the Church.
One – Israel, which could have been saved by the law,
if they had accepted Jesus and His Sermon on the Mount
at His first coming,
and will be saved by the law when Jesus returns,
when they will accept Jesus as the Messiah,
and the Sermon on the Mount
as the constitution of the laws of the kingdom;
while the Church is saved by grace.
How could a grace teacher such as Joseph Prince,
who talks so much about grace,
be teaching that the Old Covenant people (Jews)
would be saved by the law when Jesus returns?
This must be the most shocking of all his double-talks.
Only a false prophet such as Joseph Prince
would advocate such a warped and perverse doctrine
– that people can be saved by the law.
