Exposing the Word of Faith Prosperity Gospel

The Word of Faith movement would go out of business overnite, if people would stop letting them appeal to peoples  greed and love of money.   They are false teachers and false prophets.  The majority of preachers found on TBN and Daystar are nothing more than health and wealth prosperity pimps. They humanize God and deify man. Mix that with demononic manifestations, and straight up hinduism.  These people are truly teaching doctrines of demons and not the Word of God.

Our Triune Universe, Our Triune God - Its A No Brainer - The Witness of Creation Itself


 
The heavens declare the glory of God;

And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge. --PSALM 19:1-2

 
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse   Romans 1:20

The essential truth was presented, namely that the God of Creation is one God, in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

This is arguably the most important doctrine of Christianity—certainly the most distinctive. This DOES NOT mean that there are three Gods; there is only ONE God who created Heaven and Earth and everything in them. The term "God" as used in the Bible most commonly refers to the Father, but the Son and the Holy Spirit are each also recognized as God. This concept is so difficult for many to accept that some have argued that the three divine Persons are not really three distinct individuals but merely three modes in which the one God can express Himself as occasion demands.
But this also is a false invention. There are many accounts of the Father and Son and Holy Spirit speaking to each other, for example. The doctrine of the Trinity is admittedly difficult (in fact impossible) to comprehend fully with our minds, but it is taught so definitely in God's Word that we believe it with our hearts.


Skeptics can deride the Trinity doctrine as mathematically impossible. One plus One plus One does not equal One, but three. Nevertheless, the Bible reveals God to be a Trinity—one God in three Persons. Are we na├»ve and credulous to believe such a thing?

Well, not really. It is also a remarkable fact that the divine Trinity, the tri-une God, has created a great universe which is itself a trinity, with each of its three components also structured as trinities. This would not necessarily prove that God is a Trinity, but it is a fact that needs explanation. Could God have created it as a model (or type, or analogy) that would help people understand His own Nature, at least in some degree?


Consider: The created universe is actually a tri-universe of Space, Matter, and Time, each permeating and representing the whole. However, the universe is not partly composed of space, partly of matter, and partly of time (like, for example, the three sides of a triangle). A trinity is not a trio or a triad, but a tri-unity, with each part comprising the whole, yet all three required to make the whole. Thus, the universe is all Space, all Time, and all Matter (including energy as a form of matter); in fact, many scientists speak of it as a Space-Matter-Time continuum.

Furthermore, note the parallels between the divine trinity and the tri-universe in terms of the logical order of its three components. Space is the invisible, omnipresent background of everything in the universe. Matter-and-Energy reveal the reality of the universe. Time makes the universe understandable in the events occurring in it. Note that exactly the same sentence will apply if the words Father, Son, and Holy Spirit replace the words, Space, Matter, and Time.
Space itself is also a tri-unity, comprised of three dimensions, (height, width and depthwith each dimension permeating all space. The reality of any portion of space is obtained by multiplying the three dimensions together (the "mathematics of the Trinity" is not 1+1+1=1, but rather 1x1x1=1). Further, Space is identified in the first dimension seen in the second dimension, experienced in the third dimension. The same sentence could be used with Father, Son, and Spirit replacing first, second, and third dimensions.
Similarly, Time is future, present, and past. The future is the unseen source of time, manifest moment-by-moment in the present and understood in the past. Again substitute Father, Son, and Spirit.
Finally, Matter is unseen, omnipresent Energy, manifesting itself in various forms of measurable motion, then experienced in corresponding phenomena. For example, light energy generates light waves, which are experienced in the seeing of light. Sound energy generates sound waves which we experience when we hear sound.
Thus, the physical universe is a great "trinity of trinities," with the inner relationships of each element modeling the relationships of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All of this (as cautioned above) does not prove that God is a Trinity, but it certainly is a remarkable fact. It is an amazing effect, which can at least seemingly be explained on the assumption that God is a tri-une God, and has made His creation to reflect Himself. In fact it is very hard to explain any other way.
These trinities pervading the creation may not be perfect reflections of the Creator. But they are good and realistic models of the tri-une God who made them.
It would seem there must be some good explanation for this remarkable fact other than coincidence. A plausible explanation would surely seem to be that they were deliberately created by God to help us understand, in at least some small degree, His own tri-une nature

How long did it take for the Grand Canyon to form? Three 10- minute Video

Carl Baugh talks with Russell Miller about the Grand Canyon and how it proves that there was a global Flood.
How long did it take for the Grand Canyon to form?
Grand Cooley -- Formed Very Quickly by a Massive Dam Breach -- Formed in a Matter of Days
When water tunnels through a dam -- it causes the dam to collapse catastrophically
Many Catastrophic Event take place -- Cavitations Bubbles implode at up to 440,000 psi -- Turns rock to dust -- Makes water move at 100 to 125 mph with boulders, sand, and things like that -- rushing through the quickly forming canyon -- digs out the canyon very quickly  (Check out what happened to Glen Canyon Dam in 1983)
Skeptics Say -- If the Grand Canyon is because of a global flood -- why aren't there many canyons like it

With millions of years with rivers - if Rivers carve the Grand Canyon why isn't there many canyons like it

Grand Canyon -- Monument to Gods Global Flood Judgment
The Layers were laid right on top of each other -- Know this because there are no plant growing -- There was a global laying of Layers
How did the Canyon form?
The bible says that after the flood -- The Mountains arose -- And the valleys sank down -- There was a massive tectonic plate movement -- This was when the land mass (Pangaea) separated and created the continents -- Continental Drift -- Very Quickly -- Not over millions of years
This event -- smashed plates together -- created mountains -- Formed the Kaibab up warp -- Flexes the plateau above the surrounding plane -- Where the river enters the canyon -- mile below the north rim of the canyon -- Water doesn't flow uphill
Some say that the canyon formed after the flood - Russell Miller believes that it formed a thousand to two thousand years after it -- The Kaibab up warp with the snow on it -- created a natural dam -- Eventually those waters breached the dam -- Created the canyon in probably from 3 to 6 days -- The water trapped in the up warp came out and blasted through it very quickly -- Dispersing the sediments widely
More Evidence
Cedar Butte and Red Butte -- Stand on top of Kaibab Limestone -- If you were standing on the edge of the canyon -- you would be standing on the Kaibab Limestone -- Behind you are 900 Buttes -- Sedentary rocks that were laid down by water -- But other than these two buttes -- The lime stone layer is gone
There is a mile layer of sedimentary rock gone on the top of the Grand Canyon -- How do we know that -- You can pick up these layers in Utah -- The Grand Stair Case


When you go to the south rim of the Grand Canyon -- Driving - you will go right past -- Red Butte
When you go to the east rim of the Grand Canyon -- You will drive right past -- Cedar Butte
In the Grand Canyon shop -- When you go to a window -- there is a perfect view of -- Cedar Butte
In the Middle East -- They show a layer that Geologist Geophysicist have identified -- Austin Chalk -- Same Layer that runs through the Glen Rose formation -- Where Dr Carl Baugh Lives -- First Examined -- Near Austin Texas -- Runs through -- to the eastern side of the US -- Runs Through the White Cliffs of Dover -- Runs through Europe and Scandinavia -- Runs through Russia and China -- Runs throughout Israel -- Runs through Africa -- Back to the United States -- Runs North -- Through Canada -- Runs South -- Central and South America -- Runs East -- Little Disruption in the Rocky Mountains -- Runs all the way to the Western Sea Board -- Picks up again in Australia -- Monuments to the Global Flood
