Paul Washer Said What?

December 8, 2010

“The false prophet has none of this, but he does have giftings, he is quite a speaker, and he is dynamic and he seems to have some sort of power about him. But know this, his character is the key. Does he bear fruit?

False prophets are known by two things. One: the fruit that they bear. And two: the gospel they preach (Galatians chapter 1). And you can just line up many of these TV preachers and just look at the fruit of their life, the way they live, and then look at the gospel that they supposedly preach and you can mark them off as false prophets. Immediately!

Now it says – he [Paul] says something unusual about them. He says that they are like wolves. Their god is their belly. Their god is their belly BUT they look like sheep. Now how is that? How is it that they look like sheep?

By their flattering, smooth speech, that in an age of tolerance makes you think that they are the men most full of love. They will never contradict. They will never create a scandal. They will never be offensive. They will never speak forth things to anger men but they have the smooth tongue of a serpent. And they flatter men and give carnal men exactly what they want.

Now let me tell you something about false teachers. You think so many times that people fall prey to false teachers and that, in a sense, can be true at times. But I think the dominant thing in scripture is just the opposite.

False teachers are God’s judgment on people who don’t want God, but in the name of religion plan on getting everything their carnal heart desires. That’s why a Joel Osteen is raised up! Those people who sit under him are not victims of him, he is the JUDGMENT OF GOD UPON THEM BECAUSE THEY WANT EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS AND IT’S NOT GOD!

And you can line them all up with him. That’s where it is. Because let’s just go over.
Let’s look for a minute at 2 Timothy, just quickly. Chapter 4, verse 1:

I solemnly charge you in the presence of God, and of Christ Jesus, Who is to judge the living and the dead and by His appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word…

Now, when he says “preach the word” what is he saying? He follows it up with:
Be ready in season and out of season to reprove, rebuke, exhort.

NOTICE! That is NOT what these preachers do. As a matter of fact, they boast in the fact that they do not reprove, they do not rebuke – it is not their ministry. And why do they say it is not their ministry? They have a ministry of love, they say. Well then, are you saying that Christ didn’t have a ministry of love? Because He reproved and rebuked and exhorted and so did Paul.

But now look, verse 3.

“For time will come…”

And this shows you that men are not so much victims of false prophets, as false prophets are the judgment of God upon men who don’t want God.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine…

Who won’t? The people! The religious people identified with Christianity – they will NOT endure sound doctrine! They can’t endure it! They hate it! Or it bores them to tears! And so what do they do?

But wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers…

Everybody in this world, I hope you know this: everyone in the world that is involved in Christianity knows that America is the BIRTHPLACE of every heretical teaching on the face of the earth, almost.
You know what my greatest fear is? My greatest fear is that the wall around Cuba is going to fall. You say, “Why would you fear that?” Because all of the heresy in the evangelical church will find its way into Cuba!

I go into countries sometimes and they will tell me this, “Go back to your country and tell them please don’t send anymore missionaries.” Look! We ACCUMULATE for ourselves teachers in ACCORDANCE to their own desires! So, you get a Benny Hinn in there who tells you all you’re going to do is have a Mercedes Benz- those people aren’t victims, he is God’s judgment upon them!
They want what he wants and so they accumulate him to themselves along with all those other teachers because they teach exactly what they want! You see that?

Why is that? Because a great many people who sit in Christian churches today hate God. You say, “What do you mean, they hate God?” It’s like when preachers ask me many times, “Would you please come and preach on the attributes of God? You’ve written a manual on it, we really like it; would you come and teach?” I go, “Look, you probably don’t want that.” Then they go, “What do you mean?!” I go, “I just don’t want to divide your church.” They go, “We’re Christian! You’re teaching about God! What do you mean divide your church!

I say, “Listen to me, sir. When I start teaching the attributes of God and not Paul Washer’s version – I’ll just bring some historical, systematic theology to teach out of (all written by Presbyterians, Baptists just don’t hardly write anything), but, I’ll bring them! And I’ll just read out of them, so you know I’m not inventing this stuff or it’s just my idea.

And if I preach the classical Christian view of who God is, in your church, it won’t take long for some of your finest members, especially among the elderly and especially among the women, will walk out of that church with their teeth clenched together and say, “My God’s not that way! I could NEVER love a God like that!”

Because the god they’ve been worshiping is not the God of the Bible. It’s a figment of their own imagination. A god they made with their mind and then they worshipped what they made and he looks more like Santa Claus than He does Yahweh.”

THAT’S what’s going on! The REAL God!
Oh, C.S. Lewis was too tame when he said, “He is not a tame lion”… He’s God!

And I would not doubt there are people here and you don’t like Him. You wouldn’t like Him if you knew Him. Now these false prophets, this is what they do. But know this: they’re the judgment of God upon a wicked, defiled people, who although have a knowledge of God, they do not want Him. And so, God sends them the teachers that they themselves desire.” – Paul Washer, Pastor Paul Washer on false prophets, HTTP://WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/WATCH?V=FRSKMVDIAHS, July 15/07/09.

  8. Washer preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ. John the Baptist preached Repent! For the Kingdom of God is at hand. When Jesus heard that John had been imprisoned He (Jesus) went out and began to preach “Pepent! For the Kingdom of God is at hand”.

    Matthew 4:12-17
