Matt 21:12-13 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them
that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the
moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said
unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of
prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.


By the way ,didn’t Jesse Duplantis say he went to heaven and saw mansions ?..is the mansion below a replica of the heavenly mansions, or we need to pay him another 25 dollars to get the blueprint for the mansions.? LOL

Who is building Jesse Duplantis a Mansion? Jesus said there are mansions in his Father's house for those who follow him ; the faithless build mansions for themselves,the faithful have their mansions built by the Lord God.

Jesse Duplantis has a mansion built by Jesse Duplantis Ministries. Since Jess Duplantis Ministries is a 5013C organization,therefore State Property, it is tax exempt. Why is this an issue of tax important?

If the 3 million dollar property was Jesse Duplantis’ he would have to pay about 30000 dollars a year of tax.But since the mansion does not belong to him, but the ministry ,they will not pay anything.Thus he goes home with 30000 every year.Talk about social security and retirement benefits.

Moreover some may come in the defence of Pastor Duplantis by saying that the believers are building the mansion for him: WRONG.

It is Jesse Duplantis Ministries ,not the partners.The partners just fund the ministry , but Jesse is the head of the ministry.So Jesse is building a mansion for Jesse.Thus the partners money many of which come from as far as Australia and from poor countries like Zambia and East Africa to Americans struggling in the Depression should know that their sweat is adding to the bricks to Duplantis’ mansion.

The most profound difference is that Jesse Ministries is an Eternal Jesse according to the Law because it is a corporation, and legally, CORPORATIONS NEVER DIE and the other Jesse is MORTAL and he will die one day but the corporate Jesse will still own the house .He has killed two birds with one stone !!

This is just as the other Rod Parsley story where the jet belongs to the church but the pastor uses it at the expense of the church .

This cruel reality must hit Christians in the face. The Churches today are DENS OF THIEVES AND ROBBERS AND NOT HOUSES OF PRAYER.

Actually Televangelists are gaining reach like the Roman Catholic church has reach on the ground, through television and the internet that has made them make BILLIONS in just 20 years.Technology has truly aided the greedy.God is not interested in the billions, he is interested when it is done in his name because that is blasphemy..God is Holy and not a money making
venture which TV Evangelism has made of him.

It is a shame and wrong for someone to fund their personal luxury in the name of God.Our Lord Jesus had compassion for the people and not passion for worldly mansions like today’s pastors who live contrary to the teachings of the one whom they claim to serve

One can build such a mansion for the poor next door .How many of them will get saved after doing such a gesture.Some Pastors who like to defend their love for luxury will say ” but i have already given to the poor and built an orphanage “
Then do more , give to more people and more will be blessed

However what most of these ministers do is give to the poor as plastic charity but give their life and all the church expenses for their personal riches and comfort.This is hypocrisy.

The Lord Jesus whom these minsters claim to serve said you cannot serve God and Money at the same time.The Antichrist teaching of these minsters is that you can serve God and money at the same time.IMPOSSIBLE

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But
lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matt 6:19-21

Friends this is not a suggestion,this is a commandment from the Lord Jesus that we should not treasure the things of this world ,but the things of God.Yet Prosperity Gospel wants us to treasure the things of this world more than God and to treasure money more than the Word of God.. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THESE “SALESMEN” CALLED PASTORS WHO USE THE NAME OF JESUS TO HIDE WHERE THE HEART IS…IN THE WORLD NOT HEAVEN WE YOU AND ME WANT TO GO.

WATCH OUT AND KNOW that these TBN ministers and other Prosperity Ministers , Charismatic Pastors see the church as a business and we know what Jesus did to the businessmen in the temple.They provoked his wrath the most.

Matt 21:12-13 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them
that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the
moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said
unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of
prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

STORY FROM http://www.fox8live.com/news/local/story/Lee-Zurik-Investigation-Duplantis-ministry-is-big/5TMO1FgNkEK0Lfr3o4HMTg.cspx

Lee Zurik Investigation: Duplantis ministry is big business

Ole Anthony’s been investigation religion since the mid 1980’s.

Anthony said, “There’s more fraud committed in America in the name of God than any other fraud. And that’s is just not right.”

Anthony heads the Trinity Foundation. It’s a Dallas based not for profit.

“Many of these ministries we investigate at the top are spiritual snakepits,” Anthony said. “And that’s sad.”

Trinity Foundation has worked with the FBI, IRS, even the U.S. Senate.

“Believe it or not, we are the only group in America that routinely investigates religious fraud,” Anthony said. “Why? Because these guys are terribly litigious. I’ve been sued so many times I can’t count it anymore.”

One of the televangelists Anthony is investigating is based in St. Charles Parish.

Jesse Duplantis is charismatic. He also has a worldwide following.

But Anthony says greed motivates Duplantis. And Anthony says that is apparent by his luxurious lifestyle.

Duplantis is building a mansion in St. Charles Parish. It’s reportedly one of the largest on the East Bank of the River. Construction began in October of 2008. The house has 35-thousand square feet of covered space. It has 22,039 of living space. The garage and other covered area totals 12,947 square feet.

Inside, there will be 5 bedrooms, more than 7 bathrooms, and a home theatre. Parish records show the cost at 3 million dollars. The owner of the house is not Duplantis, but his ministry, Jesse Duplantis Ministries.
Pete Evans leads the investigations for the Trinity Foundation.

Evans said, “Donors expect the money they donate to the church to go to the poor and needy. Not to build mansions for the pastor.”

Evans says Duplantis teaches the Prosperity Gospel.

“If you give x amount of dollars, you are going to get that multipled and get that back to you,” Evans said. “It’s a heavenly Las Vegas in some sense.”

According to Duplantis, the gospel has worked for him.

In a television interview Duplantis said he was, “driving down highway 167 going towards Lafayette. And a citation jet flew over my head. And the Lord said look up. And he said I am going to give you one like that.”

Duplantis says the lord told him he would get his own private plane.

“I’m figuring how am I going to pay for this. How am I going to sustain this,” Duplantis said in that interview. “Lord said Jesse – I didn’t ask you to pay for it. I asked you to believe for it.”And years later, Duplantis got that plane.

Duplantis blocks his flight records, but Fox 8 News managed to get a copy. Since 2000, .Duplantis has used his plane nearly 2500 times. A plane owned by his ministry.

“It appears as though on the surface that Duplantis is using his jet to go on vacation from time to time,” said Evans.

In 2009, Jesse Duplantis Ministries plane took a 17 day trip to Hawaii. The plane hopped from island to island. We spoke to one airplane operator who has the same jet as Duplantis. By his calculations, this Hawaii trip cost his ministry $40,000. That includes the cost of gassing up, flying, and storing the plane in Hawaii for 17 days.

Records show, in early March, he took an 11 day Hawaii trip this year too.

Jesse Duplantis Ministries jet has also taken 11 different trips to Las Vegas.

And the plane’s also been to Canada and England. But the majority of his flights to appear to be for church work.

“If a CEO of whatever needs a plane that is fine,” Duplantis said in a TV interview (not with Fox 8). “So if a CEO of a ministry needs to preach the gospel and get back to his church, that’s ok with me.”

Duplantis’ congregants say his big house and private plane don’t bother them.

“That’s his personal business,” one congregant said.

Another said, ”I think god is blessing him. He gives to people and he gives back. Whatever you give you get back.”

While the church is paying for the house and plane, his congregants say they don’t believe their donations fund his lifestyle.

“I don’t think church money is going towards that,” a congregant said. “But I’d love to give to it. Because whatever you sow is what you receive. So I’d love a big beautiful house and a plane too.”

The Trinity Foundation says there’s no truth behind the prosperity gospel. They say Duplantis’ actions mirror many televangelists across the country.

“Unfortunately this is becoming more and more common where preachers are using at best suspicious business dealings to hurt the church and benefit themselves,” Ole Anthony of the Trinity Foundation said.

A huge home and a plane that’s sometimes used for personal use – all benefits the Trinity Foundation say shouldn’t be possible for a man of god.

“He doesn’t believe in the Holy Trinity. He believes in the holy quartet. Father, son, Holy Spirit and him.”

Anthony said he knows that will offend a lot of people who go to his church every week.

“I know. Talk to them in five years after the promises didn’t work.”

But one congregant said: “If anybody wants to put him (Duplantis) down, you are going to have to put the congregation down too.”

We tried to get an interview with Duplantis for this story. He never returned our calls.
