This is how this post started, and progressed...

“You’ve got three days to get that into your mailbox. I’m not afraid to say this. I am walking in my authority… if you don’t postmark it by the tenth, we will not accept it. God says you have three days to get your thousand-dollar seed in the mail.” I was watching TBN the night she said this. Of course, I couldn't watch it for long. This is an example of a false prophecy. She claims to speak for God here. She states that God said someone has three days to get a thousand dollar seed in the mail.First of all, I doubt that if it was postmarked after the tenth, they wouldn't accept it. I can't see them turning away from potentially thousands of dollars.Secondly, if the seed-faith teaching is heresy, which it is, then she is absolutely speaking falsely and claiming it to be God. This is totally contradictory to Scripture. In the New Testament, we see God telling believers to give out of the abundance of their hearts, not grudgingly or of necessity, but giving cheerfully. This is just one example, which Links asked for. Also, there is something prophetic happening when a person preaches from a prophetic book. That's why it's so important that those who desire to be teachers, are first life-long students, so that they are rightfully dividing the word of truth.

Can you prove that the "seed, time and harvest" teaching is heresy? I actually see it in the Bible.

I watched her when she was on TBN the other night and she, herself, decreed that people would be healed. She has no power to do this; this is false representation. Only God has decreeing power. She is deceitful and she knows she is false, and she is leading thousands of people away from God.I pray that God would grant her repentance...

Job 22:28 has been talked about by myself at least a few times here on the board. But, I'll go over it again. First, let's establish the speaker here:Job 22:1 ¶ Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said, It was Eliphaz the Temanite who chose to spoke as if he knew God. Firstly, the Temanites were descendants of Ishmael. They would currently be some of your modern day Muslims or other Arabs. Temanites were not believers in the God of Israel. Now, what did he say? Well, he said a lot of stuff, but you, like others, have chosen to take this one scripture verse way out of context and apply it to the believer's "authority".Job 22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. So, what did God say in response to Eliphaz's declaration?
Job 42:7 ¶ And it was [so], that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me [the thing that is] right, as my servant Job [hath]. Job 42:8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you [after your] folly, in that ye have not spoken of me [the thing which is] right, like my servant Job. God's wrath was kindled against Eliphaz and the other two as well. But God directly responded to Eliphaz. If it weren't for the fact that Eliphaz was a friend of Job, God would have dealt with him harshly. But, for Job, God accept the sacrifice.So, that kills any argument about "decreeing a thing". Last time I checked, in the economy of a kingdom, only the king has the power to decree anything. As far as God reaping a harvest of sons? That kind of teaching would necessitate the thought that God had a need, and so He sowed according to His need. But peep this:
Psa 50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he goats out of thy folds. Psa 50:10 For every beast of the forest [is] mine, [and] the cattle upon a thousand hills. Psa 50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field [are] mine. Psa 50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world [is] mine, and the fulness thereof. God owns everything. He needs nothing from us. Even if He WERE hungry, He'd never tell us. He needs nothing. He has everything and self-sufficient within Himself.
Mat 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to [our] father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. God is God. He is not a man having needs. He never lost a thing. He never needed to do anything to reap sons. He could have simply raised up children afresh, unstained with sin. He could have created a new race of people who would ONLY worship Him. The seed faith message is a message of works, not grace. It turns the doctrine of grace into a doctrine of works, and makes man sovereign over God. For if we give, God MUST give in return. The seed faith has a low view of God AND scripture, and a high view of man and his "faith". The seed faith message says that God cannot act or will not act until WE do something. It makes God impotent unless we "allow" Him to bless us. Yet, the God of the Bible, the God I serve, is OMNIPOTENT and completely sovereign.
Dan 4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth [are] reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and [among] the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? God answers to no one.

My synopsis:
This last posting is a prime example of Biblically true Exposition of the Scriptures, background, audience and historical consistency throughout the text. Man we need more of this from the pulpit, people get consumed with miracles and signs, and neglect the simple yet profound truths of the Scriptures that dont contradict itself!! Them signs and wonders are temporal, never long lasting and rarely truly convert!! The gospel must be preached to convert the soul, an unrepented heart cant proclaim the truth and the Gospel!

Galatians 3:24 (Therefore the Law has become our [1 Cor 4:15] tutor to lead us to Christ, so that [Gal 2:16] we may be justified by faith.

Psalm 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

Hey if you offended by this post, I am not apologizing this is the Truth proclaimed, and I aint ashamed 0f the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Young and Unashamed >>Romans 1:16, you got a problem go take it up with YOUR god or bring it to my GOD, and have them scales removed! I say it in this manner because if you proclaim that your god and doctrine allow for such a claim, such as the one discussed in the dialogue concerning Bynum above, then we obviously serve a different god, its not ok for you to feel a certain way about certain scriptures because it suits your character, views and perspective. Im sorry but I am not gonna sit back and accept everything that gets thrown my way, matter of fact this is my Blog and I can express myself here at the least, right? My convictions are based on Biblical principles and I know God honors His WORD! There are no contradictions in my Bible, therefore my argument is backed up by my standards, the Holy Scriptures.

Sola Scriptura - Scriptures Alone!

Won, let me keep chewing! Go check the link this dialogue came from Click on the Yellow Juanita Bynum title in the begining of this post!

Won, Les

All of you all out there in Christendom need to get off this "pray for them and judge not lest you be judged". Look the tree is known by the fruit that it bears. These two trees are not bearing the right kind of fruit; it's just that plain and simple. I don't know why the "saints" are so quick to cover up mess rather than calling it what it is. It is what it is...A BIG MESS. Even the folks (unsaved) in the world know how to call a spade a spade. No fruit of the Spirit is evident on these trees. Ya'll need to get a grip! Stop being in denial about this situation. Sympathy goes out to Bynum, because no one deserves to be abused in any form or fashion. On the other hand she needs to stop making public appearances and sit her hips sit down somewhere so she can make sound decisions about this matter.
