I was listening to a portion of the GODTV broadcast in Florida a few nights ago, and started counting the number of times I heard “We put a DEMAND on your anointing God!”: I stopped counting after the 5th time.
This seems to be the thing today–to demand of God. I call it presumption, others believe this is how faith works.
Creflo Dollar is just one other who appears to believe we can demand things from God, just by speaking it out. He also appears to think Angel’s do nothing more then fulfill those demands.
It looks like angel invoking isn’t isolated to Todd Bentley alone. Creflo Dollar seems to think angels are slaves who are under service to us.
Since when do we command angels to do such things as bring us wealth? Angels are God’s messengers, and operate under that authority. Yet, Dollar would have us believe that we can command them at will to bring us such vulgar things as earthly riches…filthy lucre…mammon.
Didn’t Jesus tell us not to strive for the bread that corrupts, but to strive for the bread that will not corrupt? Didn’t He tell us not to lay up for ourselves treasure upon the earth where moth and rust corrupts?
Consider Jesus’ words, and then compare it to what Creflo Dollar teaches:
Angel Power Confession
Because I am the righteousness of God, angels have been sent to minister to me. They respond to the Word of God which I speak. Therefore, I loose angels with the words of my mouth.
I say today, let the Lord be magnified who takes pleasure in my prosperity. In the name of Jesus, I command the angels to bring to me prosperity in my spirit, in my home, in my body, in my family life, and in my finances.
I declare promotion and command the angels to bring promotion into my life. I have a blood-bought covenant promise from God Almighty to multiply exceedingly. Therefore, I confess I am exceedingly fruitful and blessed, right now, in Jesus’ name! I command the angels of God to go and bring this covenant to pass in my life now! I have the power to get wealth, and release the angels to bring wealth into my life. (source)
What a presumptuous prideful people many in the Church are today! No fear of God–but after all, why should they be expected to fear God when they act like they ARE God?! (May God have mercy on the wayward Church)
*By the way, take note of all the “I’s” and “my’s” in Dollar’s prayer
