Pastors Must Be Humble Servants

Pastors are Not Perfect


Important request for prayer: We would like to encourage our U.S brothers and sister to pray for their Country during this election period. We know that during election campaigning many things are said which  divides the population especially given to the historic significance of this elections involving a possible female for president. Being in Africa, we are witnesses that the Lord has been using our U.S brethren and this great nation to help spread the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We therefore encourage all our brethren reading here to pray for the peace and the goodwill of America and that the Lord would heal the wounds of division after these elections in Jesus name.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: GLORY TO THE LORD! We are not trying to draw attention to ourselves but to the messages of the Lord. We had several people doubting the vision of Brother Glenn which the Lord gave him last year (2015) November in which he shared even before Mr Donald Trump was elected as a presidential nominee for the GOP that he (Mr Trump) would be elected as next U.S president. In that vision, Brother Glenn stressed that the election results would be a surprise to many people around the world and that has happened. Please see next week's article for the full details! We further encourage the brethren to continue praying for the U.S.

Brethren, we are reposting this message with some additions. The Lord would like to remind pastors of their roles as shepherds of the flock. The Bible says, "For it is time for judgment to begin with God's household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?" (1 Peter 4:17 NIV). Although we shared this message during 2013, under the direction of the Lord we are sharing it again with some modifications. 

Before continuing I (Brother Glenn) had a vision from the Lord on the November 6, 2016. In the vision, I saw a man send by God appearing to a minister I know and he said, "You are deadwood, a Christian messenger is not supposed to be involved in worldly things" (John 15:6; 2 Timothy 2:4). The message through this vision is clear, no Christian is supposed to serve the interest of the world and its institutions (Matthew 6:24), our call as ministers of the gospel is to serve the interest of the Lord by preaching the word and not to encourage the flock to desire the world. We must not flirt with the world, there are many ministers who has left ministry work and took up worldly positions. This is rejecting God's calling, you may still have faith, but you are deadwood. The Lord is further warning that ministers who through greed leaves their ministry positions for more money in business ventures or private jobs acts out of greed and not from need. Pastors should have an appetite for souls and NOT for worldly gain!

On (August 25, 2013), the Lord Jesus Christ gave Charis visions about pastors. These revelations are meant to warn lukewarm Christians and most particularly pastors. The Lord wants pastors to submit to His authority as Head of the Church and to repent. Having being involved in Christian ministry work for many years, I have observed the behaviour of some pastors, many of them think that being in ministry and their knowledge about God will save them. It is also true, the attitude of some pastors are for self-acceptance before the Lord and His Word and they don’t consider themselves as servants but as those that must be served and adored.

With today's widespread media coverage, people's status and 'power' is highlighted to draw considerable attention to who they are. Why do I say so? Well, the pastor's resume often goes ahead of them. We know this is to generate interest in the speaker and his or her work to draw attention to the message, but is this necessary? In my opinion, it is not necessary (Luke 6:26), these ministers are 'stealing' from God, His glory (Luke 17:10) under the disguise they are using their authority. Scripturally, pastors and all ministers of the gospel are 'overseers' and we have not been given authority to 'lord' ourselves over others (1 Peter 5:2-3). Therefore, the work of the pastor, bishop, apostle or whatever title is to "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn't need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15 HCSB). The above verse emphasises that we be 'approved' by God and not by man. In previous articles, we have written extensively on the importance of self bible study which yields the spiritual fruits of faith, prayer power through the word, discernment and Christian values according to scriptural exhortation (Jude1:20; Romans 12:2; Galatians 5:22-23).

Furthermore, as ministers of the word of God, we are called to live holy (Titus 1:7-9; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14) and to encourage and invite others to holy living. In this brief article, we are not mentioning these things to shame pastors who also have a duty to watch their own salvation (1 Corinthians 9:27) but to save pastors from the trap of self-elevation. I have further observed that Church activities have become more administrative than being soul winning centred. They teach knowledge on how to amass material possessions and to be attractive to others through outward appearances. Additionally, by showing off what they have, they are encouraging the flock to run after the things of the world through their prosperity doctrine.

As for us in this ministry, we have been sent today to pastors and believers in Lord Jesus Christ to announce to you that the Lord Jesus Christ is displeased with some ministers, and as we will see later, some prominent pastors are on their way to hell. In our past visions about pastors, we did not reveal the identities of some ministers. After much prayer and having examined the Scriptures, we were  convicted to warn the people about them and to mention their names (1 Peter 5:20; 2 Timothy 2:17-18). In fact, the Lord commanded us to mention their names. We are also encouraged by the Apostle Paul’s rebuke of Peter as a respected witness to warn others and to lead Peter to correction (Galatians 2:11-14). There are also many other men in Scripture who were exposed for their duplicity to warn the flock against them, and today there should be no exception (2 Timothy 4:10; 3 John 1:9-11; 2 Timothy 4:14-15).

Nonetheless, small as we are, we owe love and the truth to the body of believers (Ephesians 4:15). Factually, there are many people, including members of our families, who do not believe that the Lord  spoke to us, and if you don’t believe the things we testify to you, just remember we have been a witness to you for your good. We are not chasing after anyone’s flock or anyone’s money; we simply share with you what the Lord passed on to us. In our experience, some pastors were treating us with suspicion when we tell them what the Lord said and revealed. in their scepticism, they believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit but when the gifts are being manifested in power, it turns out to be true to be believed. They doubt and ignore God’s warning to their own detriment. However,without further ado, we will reveal the visions from our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

“I had a vision this morning (August 26, 2013) after our 6:30 AM prayers. The Lord appeared in a dazzling shiny long white robe. He had a golden crown on His head with various shiny stones all around. On His feet, the Lord had golden sandals on and He had a sash across His chest written in golden letters “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS”. He was sitting in our living room and said: There is no article for this week, your father must write about pastors and their NAMES MUST BE PUT IN”.

As you may see, the Lord has given us permission to reveal the names of these ministers.

Vision of Carlton Pearson and Pope Francis (Jorge Mario Bergoglio)

“I had a vision this morning (August 22, 2013) that I was transported in the spirit to America. I saw myself standing in front of the statue of liberty. All around me, there were people standing there (at the location of statue of liberty) staring at this image. While I was looking at these people, I saw a pastor going inside the statue of liberty. The vision suddenly changed and I saw this pastor (Carlton Pearson) being at home. I saw how he was swearing and beating his wife and children. He said his children must read comic books (I saw some comic books such as “Mysterious” and “Batman”). His children wanted to read the Bible and I saw how he grabbed the Bible out of their hands, swearing at the Bible saying the Bible is not for children but for adults only. (Please be aware, this is symbolic language, but the Lord has assured us that the person here knows what's being quoted here is what he said).

Again the vision changed, and I saw the same pastor in a church, and I saw the people or members of his congregation praying, and while they were praying the pastor became drowsy and fell vomiting black stuff. After that he spoke and said: “It is not wrong to read comic books and people must write down their bad thoughts in a diary”. After hearing and observing this, I again found myself entering the statue of liberty and upon entering, I went to the microphone and started addressing the people who were standing there and I said: “People (waving my Bible) this Word is for children, adults and older people (Joshua 8:35; Matthew 4:4). Don’t think everything pastors do and say is right; some pastors are very wicked”. After I said that, the people were laughing at me and chanted, “Pastor holy, Pastor holy, Pastor holy”. I then concluded and said, “People, this is a teaching from the Lord but you don’t seem to care!”

Soon after this, I found myself in another location which the Lord didn't reveal to me. I saw countless people standing in the shape of a doughnut with Pope Francis standing in the middle, closing his mouth with his left hand, while laughing at them. All those people standing there were worshipping and whatever the pope said they did. He told them to worship him naked, and I saw them all naked while worshipping him.

The Interpretation of the Vision as Provided by The Lord

“During our praise and worship session this past Saturday (August 24, 2013), I, Charis, was urged by the Holy Spirit to pray and ask the Lord to give the meaning of this vision. The Lord appeared to me again after our morning prayers on Sunday morning (August 25, 2013). He again repeated and showed me the above vision. This is how it happened, I entered into a pure shiny white room and the  the vision played out again, the Lord had it paused and explained the meaning to me.

Now, the part where the pastor (Carlton Pearson) was vomiting black stuff, I saw about 13 creatures in the shape of a heart with long thin legs and arms dancing around him and these creatures seemed to be hypnotising him to become drowsy and vomit and he would fall to the floor and vomit. I saw that there was a very fat bear (demonic spirit of deception) inside of him. The size of this bear was in the shape of his body. I understood in the vision that this bear was being fed these wrong teachings, and when the pastor vomits, he is taking out the old wrong teaching and must make way for new wrong teachings.

The other part in the vision, where he was beating his wife and children, the Lord said that through his attitude and wrong teachings, he was beating their faith and strength in the Lord and that he was discouraging them to follow the Lord faithfully. This resulted in them not following the Lord whole heartedly and their were not reading their Bibles as before, but they were following him in his wrongs. As for the part where he was entering the statue of liberty, the Lord said that he was idolizing it and worships it at night when he prays.

As for the vison regarding Pope Francis, the part where the people are worshipping naked before the Pope, the Lord says the Pope is making a fool of the people and the nakedness is that some of them don’t know they are spiritually naked. The Lord also said that other Catholics are ashamed of their Catholic teachings but they afraid of being ostracised and persecuted by the others so they continue in the Church's tradition”. End of vision!

Vision of Bishop TD Jakes and Pastor Freddy Edwards

“I had a vision this morning (August 25, 2013) after our 06:30 prayers. I was transported in the spirit to America again and I saw Bishop T.D Jakes standing by the pulpit with his arms open as he declared, “Isn’t this a wonderful big church”? And I heard everybody replying saying ‘Yes!’ I then saw the ceiling opening in a square and we heard the Lord’s voice from Heaven saying: This man is WORLDLY and he is going to HELL; he will get stones in his mouth and he will be hanged up in HELL”. We then asked, why Lord? he is pastor! and the Lord replied saying, Pastors don’t actually go to Heaven; they are going to HELL, because they sometimes lead people wrong and they are also leading people to ME. But they themselves think they are perfect.

After the Lord said that, the vision changed and I saw in a television screen a picture of Pastor Freddy Edwards (South African Bishop) and I heard the Lord say, I don’t really speak to Pastor Freddy Edwards; it is the devil that tells him about those millions of Rands. I don’t care about those millions; I only care about My WORD.” I said ‘Thank you Lord for the teaching” and the Lord said, “Continue to pray for all pastors.” End of Vision!

Additionally, during November 27, 2012 we wrote a vision called Judgement pronounced upon hypocritical pastors. The Lord referred to Pastor Freddy Edwards here, so I emailed his secretary and asked for his email address to warn him, I wrote to him but he never replied. This is a warning again from the Lord to him and many other pastors who follow their lead and imitate their ways. Preach the word, flee from the world of desire (1 John 2:15), the love of money (1 Timothy 6:10) live holy and encourage holy living to the flock of God and the Lord will provide for the needs of the flock. Don't set yourself up as a role model who craves for worldly attention with greedy motives. Our work as minister of the gospel is to preach and harvest souls (Matthew 9:37) not to gather worldly treasures (Matthew 6:21). Let me ask every God fearing pastor, did the Lord call you to be a financial advisor to the flock or to "to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ?" (Ephesians 4:12 ESV). Don't encourage greed, but teach the flock to " content with what you have..." (Hebrews 13:5 NIV).

In conclusion, since this message is a warning to pastors, I must also mention that we wrote a vision about Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on the article posted on February 12, 2013. This vision was given to Jaydeen when she was (11 years) and the Lord had not given the full interpretation of this vision. This vision given was on February 8, 2013 and it is called Vision of a Well-known Pastor who Endorses Worldly Music. You may read and pray for pastors, but be aware of wrong teachings that lead you into sin. If we, or any minister, preach and teach something that encourages sin, selfishness, greed and worldliness, BEWARE! Those who promote their church and ministry only do so to attract more members which translate to more money for them through their money sermons (Please see also Prosperity teachers message). The Lord is NOT interested in your money, but your soul! Like the rich young man, use your riches to help others and the work of God (Matthew 19:21). Finally, as an encouragement, please read your Bible daily, judge the messages you hear being preached (1 Thessalonians 5:21). Pastor's and fellow ministers of the gospel Don't undermine this warning from our Lord Jesus Christ, but seek the Lord and repent! To the flock: don’t side with your pastor’s, but judge the messages he or she presents objectively and consistent with what the Bible teaches. The Bible is our ONLY ROAD MAP TO HEAVEN!

We would like to extend an invitation to anyone who does not know the Lord Jesus Christ yet, or of you are not born again, to pray our suggested prayer on this link Prayer of Sincere Repentance
by faith and follow the Lord (Matthew 4:19). You may also contact us for any questions or comments about this article or our ministry.

Grace and Mercy

Brother Glenn, Charis and Jaydeen.
