This video is section two of Keith Thompson’s outstanding video called “Joel Osteen: origins and errors of his teaching”. This section is titled “Where do Osteen’s teachings come from?”. This clip shows beyond doubt that Joel’s and the Word of Faith’s teachings have their origins in the occult. This is a 14 minute excerpt from Keith’s 1hr 15 minute film.
Joel Osteen’s net worth is growing fast. If I remember correctly Joel’s networth was 40 million in 2015. But has grown over 4 fold since then.
Back in 2012 Joel bought a new mansion for himself and his wife Victoria, in Houston’s old money exclusive neighborhood called River Oaks, that was worth 10.5 million back then. And at that time Joel gave his 2.2 million dollar mansion to his oldest son. Pictures are on our GroupBlog called The Word On The Word Of Faith along with over 1100 more post on Joel and other Word of Faith movement preachers/teachers, including their unbiblical false teachings and practices. Including Kenneth Copeland who has been worth over 1 billion dollars for a long time and has bought at least 2 very very expensive multi-million dollar airplanes.
According to The Indian Tribune Osteen is now worth 110,000,000 dollars. And as many already know he bought a very expensive Lamborghini not too long ago. That is pictured here.
Here is one of the videos I have made on my Christian apologetics Youtube channel. I hope you enjoy the video and someone is helped by it. It asks and answer the question Does God Want All Christians to be rich?
On 01/12/2021 RelionUnplugged reported that Charismatics where “warring” with each other over failed Trump victory prophecies, even sending death threats to each other as Charlotte, N.C.-based evangelist Jeremiah Johnson, said in a January 7th Facebook post saying…
Over the last 72 hours, I have received multiple death threats and thousands upon thousands of emails from Christians saying the nastiest and most vulgar things I have ever heard toward my family and ministry. I have been labeled a coward, sellout, a traitor to the Holy Spirit, and cussed out at least 500 times. We have lost ministry partners every hour and counting.
“I fully expected to be called a false prophet etc., in some circles, but I could have never dreamed in my wildest imagination that so much satanic attack and witchcraft would come from charismatic/prophetic people,” he continued. “I have been flabbergasted at the barrage of continued conspiracy theories being sent every minute our way and the pure hatred being unleashed.
“To my great heartache, I’m convinced parts of the prophetic/charismatic movement are far SICKER than I could have ever dreamed of. I truthfully never realized how absolutely triggered and ballistic thousands and thousands of saints get about Donald Trump.”
One speaker in the Charismatic Movement said the false Trump prophecies were “the largest scale deception I’ve seen in 49 years of following Jesus.” while yet another pastor also claims parts of the movement is “SICK.”
J. Gordon Melton, the compiler of the Encyclopedia of American Religions and an American religious studies professor at Baylor University claims that at least 40 Charismatic Christian leaders falsely prophesied a Trump Victory.
Weather Witching false Prophetess Katt Kerr later said…
“He (God) assured me in 2015 that Trump would sit in the White House for eight years and God assured me today when He walked into my room at noon — well, almost noon, 11:55 am. — He yelled as loud as He possibly could, ‘Justice will prevail.’”
Kerr absolved herself and other New Apostolic Reformation Movement false prophets from having to repent or even apologize for falsely prophesying a Trump victory saying, as Protestia Ministry shows, she said God told her…
Watch My hand move! Now that man is done with their process, I will put My show on, and no one will ever forget when that happens. There will be great celebrations in the streets of this country and around the world. That great victory has come on behalf of the body of Christ, on behalf of My America, that I’m not giving up to any enemy.
So be ready to see what will happen, regardless of what they show. The lying frying (?) news and the liars and the stealers and the takers will pay greatly for what they have tried to do. So they will fail and fail greatly in every way, because that landslide will pull every one of them down, and justice will be served, says your God.
So stand in the light, or run to the darkness. But nothing will stop Me from My plan of putting My son Donald Trump back in that White House. Even if they inaugurate the villain and try to put him there, I will kick him out. I will remove him and I remove every obstacle that’s in the way. Maybe they’ll show that in the news, says your God. Can you not stand and not turn to the left and give himself as a partner to the evil that wants to take this land? Well, I say no, it will not happen. It will end and it will be done because I say it will be done!
Outrageous and false prophecies, and Kerr claiming that God appears and talks to her personally is nothing new. She has made such bold claims and many false prophecies for years.
In 2017 Kerr and her “Weather Warriors” (her followers, as she called them), attempted to speak to and command hurricanes Irma, Jose and Katia to cause them to dissipate and to stop barreling towards the east coast inhttps://www.spiralnature.com/magick/weather-witching-harnessing-power-weather-magick/
the United States. But everyone who was paying attention to those storms and has a decent memory knows that hurricanes Irma, Jose and Katia devastated Florida and the rest of the south eastern coastline.
At my main Youtube Channel I have the video of Kerr’s first attempt at weather witching (I use the term weather witching because controlling the weather and steering storms is something that witches try to do) to try to control those 3 hurricanes and cause them not hit America.
Here is her first video trying to convince her “weather warriors” to join her in commanding those hurricanes to “go away” and “veer to the north-east”.
In the next 3 videos I give my play by play commentary on her second a attempt, and then her making excuses (HERE and HERE) for why their words and commands did not work at controlling the hurricanes.
Here after 6 Days Of WEATHER WITCHING Kat Kerr Blames their Irma Failure On a Learning Curve, and Tries Again.
Here Kerr claims that her and her “Weather Warriors” words and commands did not work because God knew that Florida needed the rain because they had been in a major drought. But as I show in the video the Florida drought had long since ended and Florida did not need the rain.
Then after trying again after hurricane Irma had already hit and wreaked havoc in Florida, Kerr and her followers tried to stop hurricanes Jose and Katia and failed. She blamed their failures on a “learning curve”. But we all know that when Jesus commanded the weather he did not need any failing practice attempts because it takes a learning curve to learn how to control storms.
Here is that video of her excuses and her boisterously claiming that next time her and her Weather Warriors will get it right and they in fact will “learn” to control hurricanes.
The Healings and Miracles shown on GOD TV turned out to be not so miraculous when investigated and scrutinized. God definitely heals and he heals by Faith, but the so-called Faith Healers claim to have the Gift Of Healing, but do they; or was the Gift Of Healing demonstrated by Jesús’s disciples meant to establish them as real apostles, prophets and followers of Jesus to usher in the New Testament era?
On our Group blog The Word On The Word Of Faith, we have well over a dozen articles and videos on the topic of Faith Healing and the Gift of Healing for you to see and read if you wish.
Notice in this expose video that the owners of GOD TV say that Benny Hinn does not personally heal anyone because only God can heal. But they say that Benny “creates an environment where people can be healed”. To me that was the key thing said in this video because former Faith Healer Mark Haville said that was key to the “healings” at his healing meetings stating “The techniques are no different to those used by any practicing hypnotist. First, the people in these meetings are already coming with high expectancy – they want it to be God. Second, you need to create the right atmosphere – hence the long periods of singing certain types of songs to make people feel relaxed and warm.”
But Mark Repented and came clean saying he never had, nor never believed that he had the Gift Of Healing. He said he was only mimicking what he saw from alleged Faith Healers such as Benny Hinn when he said “I copied it. I learned gradually to do what all these speakers like Copeland, Cerullo, Benny Hinn and others do. They manipulate audiences and individuals simply by the power of suggestion. They call the result ‘signs and wonders’. They are deluded. Gradually, I too had learned the process of controlling meetings and inducing hypnotic techniques through suggestion in churches. I did many of the so-called signs and wonders.”
You can see the rest of Mark Havilles very revealing confession/testimony HERE if you wish.
Please watch and share this video with others you feel may need to see it, if you can get them to watch it.
As usual Dr. J Vernon McGee give an excellent exposition of scripture. Here he addresses Acts 22:16 to show that baptism does not wash away the sins of the believer.
You can view quit a few post answering the question Is Baptism is required of salvation? (HERE) on my blog titled Answering The Hard-line Church of Christ. Including another post that looks at Acts 22:16.
In this video former Word of Faith pastor John Edwards gives his testimony and rightfully says that the Word of Faith Movement is a “counterfeit Christianity” and is indeed “The Self help Gospel of Me”.
10 years go I seen this video from John and I got in touch with him and we became friends and together we founded a Groupblog on the Word of Faith Movement, with 6 or 7 blog authors, titled The Word on The Word of Faith.
John and myself, along with other former word of faith pastors, believers and some ordinary people (like me) that was deeply and negatively affected by the Word of Faith’s false teachings studied and posted on the topic on the Groupblog to try to help others, and from the stats and responses we received our Groupblog has indeed helped (especially the Ex-Word of Faith Believers Testimony Page) people to see the false teachings of the Word of Faith Movement, to come to know correct biblical doctrine and to heal and deprogram from the heretical false teaching of the Word of Faith Movement such as Positive Confession, Jesus died spiritually, that words have creative power, and that God always want us to be healthy, wealthy and materially prosperous Etc.

Be more blessed and take good care ya’ll!!
The Question of “Does God Want All Christians To Be Rich” is a question that needs to be asked sincerely more often these days. Because of the Word of Faith Movement (A.K.K. The Prosperity Gospel), which dominates Christian TV these days, claims that it is indeed true that Jesus wants all his believers and followers to be rich and have big houses; but is that really the truth?
In this video, which is the most viewed most viewed video on my Youtube Channel about Christian Doctrine (HERE), I do my best to try to answer the question biblically when we received a interesting comment on our GroupBlog on the Word of Faith Movement titled The Word on the Word of Faith; that demanded a thouruogh responce.
This is the question left on our groupblog that I responded to. You can watch the video to see how I responded and to also see if you agree or not. Whether you agree or disagree with my opinion I welcome discussion and/or friendly debate about the issue in the comment section below since the question of “Does God Want All Christians To Be Rich” is a question that needs to be asked sincerely and biblically answered more often these days. I hope you enjoy and will be edified by the vidoeo. Here is the question or comment I answered….
Demonknight2 ASKED/SAID,,,, “Hello, Damon. Since you clearly dont want comments that say anything nice about the guys youre against, I wont say anything. But I have to ask you SERIOUSLY your personal opinion or what you think the Bible says about the issue Perhaps God doesnt necassarily want ALL believers to be BILLIONARES. But Do you really think that as Christians, the only things were worthy of having (in Gods eyes) are the SAME things non-believers have or LESS than what non-believers have??? In other words, why would God ask believers to engage in things completely outside the realm of what the rest of the world is doing, then expect those SAME people to eat mud pies for dinner, AND LIKE IT?????? Again, are you saying that the God we serve is a turn the other cheek & eat hambergers for dinner & thank me for it type of God, while the person that slapped you is laughing with his friends about it & eating steak & has NOTHING to do with God??? Honestly, if God is going to contrast the size of our wallet to whether we love & trust in him, then perhaps its not us who are putting stock in money, maybe its really God! OK, but that sounds ridiculous, doesnt it??? But equally ridiculous? The notion that God wants, condones, or commands that all believers be LESS than the world even if the subject IS MONEY!!! Be HONEST Do you want to serve a God that sees you as not being worthy to have a house BIGGER than a person who OUTWORDLY MOCKS GOD???? Thanks”
This is an excellent expose/refutation video by BEZELT3. This might repulse your spirit but believe it or not Joel Osteen might be the most dangerous false teacher in all of Christianity because unlike Jesus he is always so positive, upbeat and likable. . Before you turn your ears away hear me out.
BEZELT3 correctly points out that Joel Osteen does not preach the gospel of Christ but rather the gospel of “YOU”. And he proved so by counting at least 244 times that Osteen used the word you or other personal pronouns. He watched a whole sermon from Joel Osteen and said there was nary a mention of Jesus Christ and his sovereignty. Joel Osteen teaches The Power of Words, the power of positive thinking and the false practice of positive confession, otherwise known as name it and claim it, or believe it and receive it.
BEZELT3 demonstrates how Joel Osteen takes every passage he quotes out of context or only quotes it partially to make the Bible say something that it does not say. The gospel is simply not about me and you, or you and I, it is about Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection from the dead so that we may be forgiven our sins and live with him eternally one day. That’s what we must believe and receive. Not this or that blessing.Scripture clearly says that it is God that calls those things that are not as though they are and causes them to be, not us and our words as Joel Osteen and other word of faith movement teachers teach. That is more akin to Witchcraft when humans do it but when God calls things into being it is real and really really miraculous.
If you have not believed and received the free gift of Salvation in Jesus Christ maybe you should consider doing so today. You’ll never find a better deal than God’s free gift to all humanity who will receive it, the gift of his only begotten son Jesus Christ.
