In a sermon on 14 Apr 2024, last Sunday, Joseph Prince said;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 1-minute video:

 

“Isaiah 11. Isaiah 11 talks about our Lord Jesus.

 

There shall come forth a rod or a stem from Jesse.

 

Jesse, you know, right? Is the father of David.

 

From David came the Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.


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.

 

Wow, praise God.

 

Look at how the Holy Spirit is depicted here?

 

Seven-fold Spirit of God.

 

Now, in the Book of Revelation, chapter 1,

 

you have 7 Spirits of God in the King James.

 

It says 7 Spirits of God before His throne.

 

Now, I don’t want you to think that there are 7 Holy Spirits.

 

No. I believe this is an expression of the 7-fold,

 

and Bible interpret Bible.

 

We have this scripture here in Isaiah 11

 

to tells us the Spirit of the Lord manifest in a 7-fold way.”

 

In this aspect of the sermon on 14 Apr 2024, last Sunday,

 

while Joseph Prince took the trouble

 

to explain many of the 7-fold Spirit of God,

 

such as the Spirit of Wisdom, the Spirit of Understanding,

 

the Spirit of might, the Spirit of knowledge,  

 

he craftily left out the Spirit of the fear of the Lord

 

(this is evidenced in his sermon on 14 Apr 2024, last Sunday

 

but not shown in the 1-minute video).

 

The reason is he teaches against the idea

 

that New Covenant Christians should fear God. 

 

So, he conveniently left this out.

 

Even if Joseph Prince is cornered to cover and explain

 

the Spirit of the fear of the Lord,

 

he will, as he has done before,

 

say that fearing God is only for Old Covenant believers

 

but not for New Covenant believers.

 

And Joseph Prince will go on to say

 

that fearing God under the New Covenant

 

is to worship God – half-truth deception at play again.

 

However, if Joseph Prince is allowed to make such an exception

 

– for the Spirit of the fear of the Lord,

 

then to be consistent,

 

he has to also do the same with the other 6-fold Spirit of God.

 

If Joseph Prince does so,

 

then Isaiah 11:1-3 remains an Old Covenant principle

 

for Old Covenant people

 

with no relevance for New Covenant believers.  

 

But this becomes untenable for Joseph Prince

 

as he has already implied

 

that Isaiah 11:1-3 is relevant for New Covenant people

 

when he makes the connection with chapter 1 of Revelation, a New Covenant Book.

 

Moreover, Joseph Prince also said that Isaiah 11:1-3

 

talks about the Lord Jesus.

 

Next, if you have been observant when you watch the video,

 

even though Joseph Prince displayed the reference of Isaiah 11:1-3,

 

he has only shown you verses 1 and 2,

 

while hiding verse 3a from you:

 

Isaiah 11:11-3 NKJV

There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
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. His delight is in the fear of the Lord…

    

Now, you should know his game plan.

 

If Joseph Prince were to reveal Isaiah 11:3a to you,

 

it would make it even more difficult for him to deceive you

 

as to his view that New Covenant believers are not to fear God.

 

This is because of the 7-fold Spirit of God,

 

the last one, the Spirit of the fear of the Lord

 

is what the Lord Jesus most delight in:

 

The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

 

His delight is in the fear of the Lord…

“When we first listened to Joseph Prince, we felt so awed

 

as we have never heard anyone preach such good gospel

 

that has set us free from self-righteousness,

 

and live to expect good things will happen to us

 

when we know how much Jesus loves us!

 

 …such an amazing gospel!

 

Of course, we want it!

 

We have embraced it for so many years!

 

We were so proud sitting under Joseph Prince

 

and feel so sorry for those who are not!

 

We looked up to Joseph Prince

 

just like many pastors and leaders.

 

We commented on how anointed Joseph Prince was; 

 

how he has given us many unheard revelations!

 

Every Sunday, we long to see and hear from Joseph Prince.

 

It is like a hook on our flesh

 

to yearn more and more for Joseph Prince.

 

As long it is spoken by Joseph Prince,

 

we believe and say AMEN!

 

We give glory to Jesus

 

for preaching through Joseph Prince’s mouthpiece!

 

When the pandemic hit

 

and New Creation Church was closed for gathering,

 

I read the Bible and listened to them front to back

 

and then repeat again, and again and again…

 

I then only realised we had been fooled,

 

scammed by Joseph Prince and his entire ministry!

 

There was so many things in the Bible

 

Joseph Prince didn’t teach

 

and so many things Joseph Prince teaches

 

that were not in the Bible!

 

I was so shocked and full of fear!

 

Knowing that I had sinned against God,

 

yet still being so proud

 

thinking that’s the right way to live as a child of God!

 

I feared and cried out for forgiveness!

 

It was so difficult for me and family

 

to walk out from this deep, dark tunnel.

 

Today, we no longer just listen to any preacher

 

without ourselves also study and check The Bible

 

(follow the Bereans’ way of studying the Word, and Paul actually commended them.)

 

Now, looking back and hear Joseph Prince’s teachings,

 

we immediately can hear the lies and deceptions

 

(these happened because we have read The Bible already)

 

After knowing the truth,

 

Joseph Prince isn’t wise or full of revelation at all,

 

but a very wicked false teacher in sheepskin.

 

Joseph Prince can still preach and sounds so charismatic

 

because it was all about his outward packaging!

 

His hairdresser and makeup artist

 

makes his looks young and appealing.

 

His branded wardrobe

 

makes him feel confident and secure

 

before his congregation and television.

 

But one day, God will take away all these false packaging (outward appearances)

 

that has deceived so many!”

 

@user-hd7qv8dx7x 

 

“Yes, those of us who used to queue to hear Joseph Prince, especially at Suntec.

 

But after some time,

 

those who seriously seek the whole counsel of God

 

and the whole truth

 

will realize that Joseph Prince is just a dishonest salesman

 

with very shallow teaching,

 

producing shallow carnal followers

 

who just look for blessings, prosperity

 

and an easy, effortless life of success.”

 

@user-iu3dm5qk7p

 

“Yes, you are right.

 

I think a lot of people who came out of New Creation Church

 

must have had the same experience.

 

Now, many of those still in NCC have still not woken up.

 

Lies travel faster and further.

 

Truth is slow to catch up.”

 

@WordsofGodThe

 

“As usual, Joseph Prince and all his fans

 

would ‘emphatically’ argue that he has preached sanctification.

 

However, if you do a search on the titles

 

of all these YouTubes on Rev George website,

 

you will easily find all the ‘sanctification’ teaching of Joseph Prince

 

is totally ‘rubbish’.

 

Thanks to Rev George’s hard work and dedication

 

that has made it available for us to ‘nail down’

 

a double-talker’s lie and made him ‘eat’ his own words.

 

I don’t have to list down all of the YouTubes that I have found;

 

just the first one will make you sick:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNYoZvXWjTY&t=102s

 

Joseph teaches that you have already been sanctified,

 

and therefore, you can just look ‘beautiful’ in His eyes

 

without the need of doing anything.

 

Do you think that Paul would tell the church that?

 

However, if you continue to listen to him in the same video,

 

you will ‘vomit’

 

when he said that the sanctification is not only spiritual

 

because the sanctification (by the washing of the water)

 

can also keep you physically young and without wrinkle.

 

That is a disgusting lie.

“Some days, Joseph Prince adds to the word;

 

some days, he takes away from the words;

 

some days, he mixes and matches the word

 

to present a completely different doctrine, meaning and picture.

 

Some days, he distorts the words;

 

some days, he reinterprets the word

 

to mean different meanings or even opposite meanings.

 

Joseph Prince is an evil word master

 

at misusing, abusing and corrupting the pure word of God.

 

Psalm 12:6: the word of the Lord are pure words purified 7 times.

 

@WordsofGodThe

 

“Yes, Joseph Prince is a double-talker,

 

who will say that he preaches repentance

 

when he doesn’t believe in repentance;

 

and that he preaches the truth

 

when he doesn’t have the truth.

 

It is not easy for people to detect his lies and double-talks.

 

So, it is truly by the grace of God

 

that you could wake up from a false grace

 

that is so ‘beautifully’ wrapped in deception by Joseph Prince.

 

May God open the eyes of the rest

 

who are the truth-seekers in Christ.”

“How can he be so sure

 

that he will be one of the chosen ones in the rapture?

 

Don’t be so confident Mr. Prince.”

“Some call it a con book;

 

some call it a toilet-paper book

 

if it teaches that you can have effortless success

 

and reign over every problem

 

because work has already been accomplished for you.”

“No greater curse can befall a Christian church

 

than to have teachers

 

who, by their confused and erroneous statements,

 

trouble the minds of believers,

 

and attempt to pervert the Gospel of Christ.”

 

John Brown (1784-1858), Scottish minister and theologian

“Joseph Prince has been chosen by The Most High for Destruction

 

as written in the Book of Jude.”

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“Yes, I once also believed ‘once saved, always saved!’

 

Therefore, I take sin very lightly since I am forever saved!

 

Until I read and listen to The Word

 

being read from Genesis to Revelation,

 

then I realised how wicked and rebellious I was

 

because I walked back to my old evil ways.

 

What can we aspect to become

 

when sitting under this kind of teachings

 

without ‘sanctification’ by Joseph Prince and his pastors?

 

To God, these are wickedness to Him;

 

taking His Son’s death lightly.

 

Yes, indeed very sad

 

that many still adore and embrace Joseph Prince’s teachings

 

that leads to destructions!”

 

@TheGreenPastures

 

“Keep going,

 

the deluded Christians will one day come back to their sense

 

and away from the angel of light in disguise.

 

This disease has been spread throughout in Many Churches like wild fire.

“Joseph Prince’s JESUS seems like a SISSY.”

 

@Matrixqc777

 

“‘For this is the will of God, your sanctification’ (1 Thess. 4:3).

 

‘Work out your salvation with fear and trembling’

 

– The process of sanctification (Phil.2:12-13).

 

“How does sanctification occur?

 

It occurs as we obey the Lord!”

 

– Darrell Harrison

 

“Sanctification is doctrine!

 

It is right thinking.

 

How can you possibly do right

 

and what is pleasing to God

 

if you have no idea what is right?”

 

– R.C. Sproul (1939-2017).

 

‘Justification without sanctification

 

would be no salvation as all’

 

– C.H. Spurgeon (1834-1892).

 

‘People who teach and believe

 

you can take Christ as your Saviour

 

without taking Him as your Lord.

 

They say you can take justification

 

without taking sanctification.

 

Forgiveness of sins without holiness.

 

It is a LIE’

 

– Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones

 

‘The seal that the Spirit stamps on Christ’s people

 

is sanctification.

 

As many as are actually led by the Spirit of God

 

the same are sons of God’ (Romans 8:14)

 

– J.C. Ryle

 

‘In order to achieve final salvation,

 

sanctification is as necessary as justification’

 

– Sinclair Buchanan Ferguson

 

‘The main evidence of ADOPTION is SANCTIFICATION.

 

Search, O Christian,

 

whether the work of sanctification

 

has passed upon your soul!”

 

– Thomas Watson

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“Now we know why Joseph Prince insists preaching his kind of own imagination gospel.

 

What Joseph Prince wants from God, like prosperity and blessings,

 

he will preach it to the max,

 

but he takes away the conditions (Commandments of God) of God

 

because that’s what he doesn’t want.

 

Joseph Prince has taught many so well

 

in cherry picking the word of God.”

 

@user-iu3dm5qk7p

 

“The trouble is that people have the false assumption

 

that he is extra-anointed

 

and every word from his mouth is indisputable truth

 

and he cannot be questioned.

 

That image ought to be shattered.

 

New Creation Church members,

 

question and question and examine his teachings.

 

Like in this case, what has Eutychus’ fall

 

got to do with Paul’s revelation of righteousness?

 

How is it congruent with Paul’s revelation? 

 

One could also say Eutychus was tired after a hard day’s work

 

and the packed room was hot and stuffy,

 

making him drowsy.

 

A very haphazard preaching. Anointed preacher??”
