The following article was submitted by just1ofhis. It contains an interesting mix of New Age, Word of Faith prosperity promises, false prophecies and flat out lies. When we are not checking the bible to these kinds of claims or doing other research to find out the truth we become ensnared. This is one way the people of God perish or are destroyed from a lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6.
The Iraq Dinar Revalues!!!!
Did that get your heart beating faster? This is news that a large number of people following some very dangerous and deceiving self-declared “prophets” have been anxiously waiting for. These deluded people are on a roller coaster ride from hell.
For years now, the dominionists have been speaking about a great wealth transfer about to take place in God’s Kingdom to bring the wealth of the rich into the hands of the poor. Consider this “prophetic declaration” spoken by C. Peter Wagner before some 1500 followers at the Pentecost Celebration at Glory of Zion in Texas in June of 2006. The conference was titled “From the Pit to the Palace.”
GOD’S KINGDOM WEALTH SHALL BE RELEASED! By C. Peter Wagner
I hereby take the apostolic authority that I have been given by God as an ambassador for the Kingdom of God. I make this decree on the foundation of the blood shed by Jesus Christ, God’s Son, at the cross of Calvary. I enunciate these words by the power of the infilling of the Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit of God.
(My note: Gospel 101: Then He took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.” (Matt 26:27-28 NIV, emphasis mine). Jesus did not shed His precious blood for any other reason than to cover your sins.)
In compliance with the sacred scriptures written in Ephesians 3:10, I, on behalf of the Church of Jesus Christ, make known the manifold wisdom of God to the principalities and powers in the Heavenly places. I say to you, evil spirits of darkness, that the reign you have usurped over the creation and over the nations of the world since the Garden of Eden is hereby coming to an end. The wisdom of God declares that His Kingdom is coming and that His will shall be done here on earth as it is in Heaven. Your dominion is coming to an end, replaced by the godly dominion of those who are born again children of the last Adam, Jesus Christ.
(My note: Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME.” (Matt 28:18 NIV, emphasis mine) According to scripture, the authority already belongs to Jesus. Exactly whose authority is Wagner trying to usurp?)
As a key part of bringing this about, God has declared through His prophets that the wealth of the wicked will be released to the Kingdom of God. Powers of darkness will diminish and powers of light will flourish. I declare this to the principalities and powers who have been agents of Satan to obstruct this transfer of wealth for too long: Your time is up! Your evil powers are broken! By the blood of Jesus Christ, I declare that your wicked powers are demolished! I take the apostolic authority that has been given me and I bind you! What is bound on earth will be bound in Heaven. Let go of the wealth of the nations! I loose this wealth for the Kingdom of God. What has been loosed on earth will be loosed in Heaven!
(My note: Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.” (Matt 4:8-10 NIV)
“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. YOU CANNOT SERVE BOTH GOD AND MONEY.” (Matt 6: 24 NIV, emphasis mine)
I declare that this wealth will be distributed for the extension of the Kingdom of God by the apostles that God has set in the church. I consecrate these chosen apostles. Two days ago I completed the formation of an apostolic council of 48. These experienced men and women have passed the tests of giftedness, effectiveness, leadership, and exemplary character. I speak specifically to Mammon, you vile and destructive demonic principality, and I say you will keep your hands off these 48 chosen ones. Neither greed nor covetousness nor parsimony nor self-reliance will be able to influence God’s chosen and anointed ones. They, among many others like them, will be mighty agents of God for the transformation of society. They will lead the way in restoring the rightful dominion and stewardship over God’s creation that was lost by our forefather, the first Adam.
(My note: This is from the prayer Jesus prayed for His disciples: “I pray for them. I AM NOT PRAYING FOR THE WORLD, but for those You have given me, for they are Yours.”(John 17:9 NIV, emphasis mine) The idea that God is trying to transform society and take back creation is utterly false. As Peter wrote in 2 Peter 3, this world is slated for destruction by fire. The Bible makes clear that God has no desire to “fix” this earth, but to rescue souls from His Wrath through the blood of Jesus. Jesus answered it most clearly in John 19 verse 36, “My kingdom is not of this world.”)
I decree that vast amounts of wealth will be released supernaturally, even from godless and pagan sources. I decree that large numbers of God’s chosen people will be empowered in fresh and creative ways to gain wealth according to Deuteronomy 8:18. New inventions will multiply. Disruptive technologies will change the life patterns of the whole human race. The earth will disgorge vast riches of hidden resources. These will be entrusted to God’s agents. Profits will increase exponentially.
(My note: The “godless and pagan sources” Wagner speaks of have, in the past few years, centered on a prophesied “revaluation of the Iraq dinar”. When Jesus needed money to pay the temple tax, He sent Peter out to catch a fish. In the mouth of that fish, Jesus told Peter he would find a four drachma coin to pay for both their taxes. (see Matthew 17) The obvious point here is that the Bible shows that God meets the needs of His people. Jesus could have produced a million drachmas from the mouth of the fish. He didn’t. The desire for great wealth for any purpose is idolatry.)
The enemy’s camp will be plundered. The forces of darkness will be in disarray, and they will retreat. Jesus will be exalted in nation after nation. Righteousness and justice will sweep the earth as a tsunami. Resistance will be impossible. Jesus will put all things under His feet. He will deliver the Kingdom to God the Father. The prayer that Jesus taught us will be answered. “Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!”
It is spoken. So may it come to pass! Amen and amen!
A few years ago, I began hearing “word” from a “prophetic” church in our area about this great investment in the Iraq Dinar and how God was going to “fund His Kingdom” through it. Many people followed the pastor’s advice and purchased the dinar. The promise was oh-so-enticing. I heard boasting of expected returns from a 100% to 1000%.
I was told that “everyone” was investing in this, that I better hurry so that I didn’t miss out, and that the “prophesies” about the Iraq Dinar were coming from the highest rungs of the church!
When I questioned the church’s leadership, I was scoffed at. “The dinar is the only hope these people have” was the response. My only hope is in Jesus Christ and Him crucified. If your only “hope” is the foreign currency of a third world country, I pray for you.
A bit of explanation of the Iraq Dinar:
The Iraq Dinar is “pegged” to the US dollar and has been for years. It trades around 1,170 dinars per $1.00 US. Following is a 5 year chart of the dinar to the US dollar taken of Yahoo Finance:
This means that the dinar moves directly with the dollar. The Iraq Dinar is not a market traded currency. In other words, you must directly purchase dinar for US dollars from a trader to own them. Traders take up to 20% off the top of the investment to make this trade. It works like this:
You give the trader $1,000 US dollars. He gives you $800 US dollars worth of dinar. (Today, 10/4/12, they are trading for 1,165…so you would receive 932,000 dinar. You are almost a “dinar”ionare! Of course, you have an asset that you can’t sell in the market and is only worth $800 US). The trader has made $200. You receive a wallet full of dinar.
If you want to sell the dinar, you only have $800 US worth of them to sell. You go back to the trader who will happily make this transaction, for a fee. You end up with something less than $800 US). But, hey, you got to carry around wads of Iraqi money to impress your friends.
Scam artists claim that the Dinar is going to be “unpegged” from the dollar and revalued. They will tell you that the Iraq government will set the value of the dinar close to the value of a dollar, making your 932,000 dinars worth $932,000 US. Now you are almost a millionaire! The fact that this appeals to anyone is telling in and of itself.
The state of Utah warned about the Iraq Dinar Revaluation as a scam in 2006:
Of course, false prophets are put here for no other reason than to deceive and lead astray. Consider the first paragraph of prophecy from April 28, 2012, from Kim Clement:
|From The Den|
April 28, 2012 – From The Den
Elijah saw the cloud the size of a man’s hand. This is what happened, and it’s important for all of you watching, for your own prosperity in the next seven years, starting almost immediately, that you listen and be patient. Remember what I taught you the other day; I said by patience you must possess your soul. In other words, don’t let your soul get disrupted when something doesn’t happen when you want it to happen. We heard about Firepointe; we heard about Ford – we heard about lots of things and some people are getting impatient (the Iraqi denar). These things happen in time. Obviously, there are moments where God says this is going to be released now, but this is what happened with Elijah. Elijah heard the sound of abundance. There were no clouds; there was no sign of abundance. He heard the sound; then he said to his servant, “Go and look until you see it.” Here comes the optical fusion. The servant went looking six times. You know he could have come back the fifth time and Elijah could have said just forget it! Six times he ran back and forth, and Elijah said, “Go back.” On the seventh – and you can take a little sign from this. I’m a little crafty sometimes, but I have to do it because I can’t tell you directly because the law prohibits me from doing it on this show. Seven times; the seventh time he saw a cloud the size of a man’s hand. (emphasis mine)
You can read the rest of the prophesy here:
Some people are getting impatient. The dinar hasn’t revalued yet! Some of these people have been waiting for years. I have heard stories of homes lost and lives disrupted. I pray that these folks repent of this madness and come back to the Truth of the Word of God. If you have a pastor who has pushed this nonsense…RUN FOR THE DOOR AND DON’T LOOK BACK.
In the book of Revelation chapter 16 speaks of evil spirits that look like frogs:
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. THEN I SAW THREE EVIL SPIRITS THAT LOOKED LIKE FROGS; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. (Rev 16:12-14 NIV, my emphasis)
This is Ch’an Chu, the Lucky Money Frog with three legs. “Idols” like this have been used in China for thousands of years in hopes of good health and prosperity.
It is an image of the health and wealth gospel. It is the garbage coming out of the mouths of people like C. Peter Wagner and Kim Clement, just as the Bible says it would.
The Lucky Money Frog has many meanings for the Chinese. Symbolically speaking, it is the embodiment of the yin concept, the immortal moon goddess. The moon goddess is what gives Ch’an Chu its form, and the lunar symbols such as the gems on his back (which resemble the dipper) and his three legs (which represent three lunar phases). And according to tradition, during a full moon the king money frog will appear near houses in which good news will soon be received. The ancient round I-Ching coins are also an important part of this tradition, and Anjian Australia Feng-Shui experts claim that the “ancient Chinese coins have been used for centuries as amulets to ward off evil and disease.”
Beware of sin that so easily entangles and resist those who peddle it:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. (Heb 12:1-3 NIV)
