As Bible-friendly individuals, you are invited to explore the text of this book, which is destined to reflect on the true nature of many people in churches who are being misled into believing that they are following true spirit-filled churches. Unfortunately for some of these followers, it’s too late when their lives have been destroyed because of false spiritual predictions being given them on promises in the name of Jesus Christ the True Living God. The faiths and hopes of these people have been dashed and would not trust the Church of God in any form or shape.
To cite good example would be the false prophecy regarding the predictions of two well-known cases: one prophecy was that President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe would die on 31st of December 2015. Another person gave a prophecy in affirming that the two hundred and over school children kidnapped in Nigeria by the Boko Haram group would be found unharmed and returned to their parents. As we all know these prophecies failed to materialise.
These so called prophets are still in the ministry tarnishing the image of the church of God who are supposed to be the true messengers of True Living God. As a believer, I see it as duty bound for true believers to expose such people masquerading in the ministry with their ungodly and unholy predictions permeating the environments of innocent followers. It is on this basis that the texts of this book shall focus on eight key values for exploration:
- The promise of Jesus Christ
- The Birth of true Church
- The prophetic ministry and the Holy Spirit
- Orthodox Churches not Spirit-filled Charismatics
- The true and false prophets
- The issue of prayer fasting
- Unforgivable sin
- Meaning of born again
The values explored in this book are not exhaustible but have further received in-depth analysis, highlighting the true value of each issue raised, as revealed in the Scriptures.
The exploration of theory of value, known as, “axiology”, (Hunnex: 22) should begin by trying to understand its meaning. In the context the following questions are being asked, such as: is value a quality, a relation or attitude? Is value found or made? The idea is that in traditional religious ethics, God is identified with the Good (St. Augustine), and is the source and Sustainer of all values, thus it’s crucial to relate values to the understanding of the Holy Spirit as the Sustainer of indwelling grace of power bestowed on the church at the beginning of true worship of true God. Therefore the importance of value has been stressed in these key eight issues raised throughout the book.
