God is love is a christian organization that teaches the Word of God without compromise. The Ministry was founded on 1 John 4:16 scripture God is love ministry was started to teach the word of God to the whole world with love and without compromise.
Its many objective is to bring understanding of the Word of God to many who are lost and mislead by the devil, and to strengthen the Body of Christ with apostolic teachings that are based on the Gospel of Truth. The ministry was founded 1 John 4:16 (1Jn 4:16 and we--we have known and believed the love, that God hath in us; God is love, and he who is remaining in the love, in God he doth remain, and God in him).
Beware of the false prophets!
Jesus teaches and cautions us in Matthew 7:15-20 to be aware of false prophets and judge them by their fruit. Most people judge prophets by the miracles they perform and not knowing that the devil also does miracles. For example, out of the eleven wonders of Moses and Aaron, the first five of them were also done by the magicians with the help of the demons (Exodus 7:8 to Exodus 11:9).
Matthew 7:15-20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
15 “Beware of the false prophets, [teachers] who come to you dressed as sheep [appearing gentle and innocent], but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them [that is, by their contrived doctrine and self-focus]. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the unhealthy tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore, by their fruit you will recognize them [as false prophets].
Jesus’ teaching has shown us how to detect false prophets (diviners) by looking at their lifestyle, character, and teachings. According to Jesus, every Christian must be alert and discern the spirit of divination that is currently masquerading like the spirit of prophesy.
The following is how to discern the spirit of divination (false prophesy)
a) The lifestyle (interests, opinions, and behaviors) of false prophets:
- False prophets always focus on divination and are interested in absolute power.
- False prophets think what they say is final and unquestionable, and they think they are not accountable to anyone.
- False prophets are quick to cursing who does not submit to their authority or oppose them.
- False prophets like to manipulate people to believe that they are the only true prophets of God.
- False prophets limit their members from mixing with other Christians so that they can remain under their control.
b) The character (mental and moral qualities) of false prophets
- False prophets have questionable moral qualities. E.g. Marry and divorce without regards for word of God (Mathew 19: 3-12, Malachi 2:16).
- False prophets work for financial gain. Some even charge fee irrespective of the fact that love offering (offering to someone who minister to you) is from the heart and contradict the teaching of “freely you receive” and “freely you give” (Mathew 10:8)
c) The teaching of false prophets.
- False prophets twist scripture in their favor and make people think the message is from God.
- False prophets put emphasis on miracles and neglect the importance of holiness (they don’t preach holiness)
- False prophets teach teachings that are deliberately designed to control the minds of their followers.

Testing the word of prophesy
Prophesy can be true or false but prophecy must be tested and not scorned (despised) and that is what bible teaches (1Thessalonians 5:20) and that is because of there could be another spirits other than the spirit of God (1John 4:1). The other alternative spirit used by the false prophets (the diviners) is the spirit of divination.
According to oxford’s complete wordfinder, divination is supposed insight into the future or the unknown gained by supernatural means. Divination (from Latin divinare "to foresee, to be inspired by a god", related to divinus, divine) is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by way of an occultic, standardized process or ritual that are not Christian.
Following questions, biblical teaching, and principles can help one to test a prophecy:
1. Is the word of prophecy in line with Scripture?
Every word of prophesy must be in line with the bible and any prophesy that contradicts the Bible is a word that is street from hell.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; 17 so that the [a]man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
1 Thessalonians 5:19-21Amplified Bible (AMP)
19 Do not quench [subdue, or be unresponsive to the working and guidance of] the [Holy] Spirit. 20 Do not scorn or reject gifts of prophecy or prophecies [spoken revelations—words of instruction or exhortation or warning]. 21 But test [a]all things carefully [so you can recognize what is good]. Hold firmly to that which is good.
Note: Prophecy must not contradict the word of God (Bible).
2. Does the word of prophesy exalt Jesus?
The word of prophesy that does not exalt Jesus and is not from God it must be the work of divination.
John 16:13-14 Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth [full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future]. 14 He will glorify and honor Me, because He (the Holy Spirit) will take from what is Mine and will disclose it to you.
Note: Prophecy must exalt Jesus and not the prophet or the person receiving the prophecy.
3. Does the word of prophet build up the body of Christ?
It must build up the body or the utterances is by the means of divination.
1 Corinthians 14:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
4 One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church [promotes growth in spiritual wisdom, devotion, holiness, and joy].
Note: Prophecy must build and encouragement the body of Christ or the members of the body of body of Christ.
4. Did the word prophesy come true?
A prophesy must come true unless God changes the cause of prophesy due to people’s response.
Deuteronomy 18:20-22 Amplified Bible (AMP)
20 But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods—that prophet shall die.’ 21 If you say in your heart, ‘How will we know and recognize the word which the Lord has not spoken?’ 22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord and the thing does not happen or come true, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.
Note: All prophecy from God should come true and unless God changes the course of the prophecy due to people’s response to God.
God can change the outcome of prophecy based on how the people respond to the prophecy. For example, Isaiah prophesied that King Hezekiah was going to die and when the King prayed, God told Isaiah to go back and tell him that he has extended his life by 15 years (Isaiah 38: 1-5). Another example is found in the book of Jonah in the Bible where God declared destruction on the people of Nineveh but when the people repented; God sent Jonah to go back and tell the people that he heard their prayers and will destroy them.
5. Does the word of prophesy lead people to God?
It must lead people to God (Make people obedient to God).
Deuteronomy 13:1-5 Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 “If a prophet arises among you, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder which he spoke (foretold) to you comes to pass, and if he says, ‘Let us follow after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve and worship them,’ 3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and all your soul [your entire being]. 4 You shall walk after the Lord your God and you shall fear [and worship] Him [with awe-filled reverence and profound respect], and you shall keep His commandments and you shall listen to His voice, and you shall serve Him, and cling to Him. 5 But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to draw you away from the way in which the Lord your God has commanded you to walk. So you shall remove the evil from among you.
Note: The prophecy should lead people to God and make the body of Christ obedient God’s will (accept Christ and keep the laws of God) and when it lead to the evil, then it is not from God. For example, God cannot prophesy that he will bless and lead you to attain that blessing through evil means like prostitution.
6. Does the word of prophesy produce liberty?
It must produce liberty (freedom) and not slavery leading again to fear of God of judgment.
Romans 8:15 Amplified Bible (AMP)
15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading again to fear [of God’s judgment], but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [the Spirit producing sonship] by which we [joyfully] cry, “[a] Abba! Father!”
Note: Prophesy must bring forth freedom to Body of Christ.
7. Does the word prophesy produce life?
It must produce life and not revealing sin and demanding obedience.
22 Corinthians 3:6 Amplified Bible (AMP)
6 He has qualified us [making us sufficient] as ministers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not of the letter [of a written code] but of the Spirit; for the letter [of the Law] kills [by revealing sin and demanding obedience], but the Spirit gives life.
Note: Prophesy must lead to life and destruction.
8. Does the word of prophesy attested to the Holy Spirit in each believer?
It must be attested (confirm or true) to the Holy Spirit in each believer.
1 John 2:27 Amplified Bible (AMP)
27 As for you, the anointing [the special gift, the preparation] which you received from Him remains [permanently] in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you. But just as His anointing teaches you [giving you insight through the presence of the Holy Spirit] about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as His anointing has taught you, [a]you must remain in Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him].
Note: The spirit with each one of us through an inner witness or inner voice must bear witness (provide evidence for) that the prophecy was true.
Are we under curse if we don't tithe?
Before we answer that question, let us first define tithe. A tithe is 10% of one’s income, which should be given out of one’s free will.
Tithe is given out of free will in Old Testament.
The first time a tithe (10% of his possessions) was given by Abraham to Melchizedek, priest of God Most High, (Gen. 14:19–20, also echoed Heb. 7:1–2) and it was out of free will in gratitude to God’s authority and blessing. The second person, who, also out of free will gave 10% of his belongs to God was Jacob because God kept (protected) him and provided him bread to eat and clothing to wear (Gen. 28:20–22).
Tithe became (part of law) compulsory in Old Testament.
As the children of Israel were kept is slavery and could not own property, I believe, the practice of free will to give tithe stopped and, therefore, when they attained freedom, the tithe became mandatory (Deut. 12:5–6) and according to the law of Moses (Lev. 27:30–34) and to encourage God’s people provide finances to meet the needs in the house of the lord. Tithe, strictly, was provided to meet the needs of the full time Ministers, Priest and the Levities (2 Chron. 31:4–5; Num. 18:21) and the needy (Orphans, Widows, and temporary visitors, also known as Sojourners - Deut. 14:28–29). The principle of tithe was also practiced to encourage the people to relate and know that they belong to God (Deut. 14:22).
Redeeming unpaid tithe in the Old Testament (Law of Moses).
The Law of Moses also allows a person, who due to unavoidable circumstance, fails to pay tithe for the period to redeem it by adding 20% (a fifth of the value) to the tithe. For example, if the value is 1,000 and upon repaying, person would pay 1,200.
Reestablishment of the compulsory tithe in Old Testament.
After the Jews were taken to Babylon as slaves and again lost their rights to own property, the practice of tithing stop. But when Nehemiah and the group, came to rebuild the nation of Israel, they people reestablished the compulsory tithe (NEH. 10:35–37) for the needs in the house of the Lord. The principle was practiced according to the Law of Moses.
I was reliably informed that the modern Jews don’t now practice the compulsory tithing
Tithe for blessing in Old Testament
As the nation of Israel continued to prosper, the principle of tithing for prosperity was taught (Prov. 3:9–10) and was built on the promise that generosity would be rewarded with plenty or abundancy (Deut. 15:10) and which was also alluded to (echoed) in Prov. 11:25 and Malachi 3:8–12. Moreover, It was supposed to be practiced regularly out of free will (AMOS 4:4–5) but however, God sees His people who fail to owner the principle of tithing and not submit the tithe to the house of the Lord as robbers (thieves) and puts a curses (recompenses) them for the robbery (MAL. 3:8–9).
Tithing in New Testament
Although the principle of tithing was not highly emphasized by Jesus in the gospels, He still did not abolish it either. He instead taught that tithe should not be the only thing the Pharisees should be concerned about but that they should also dispense justices and in love (LUKE 11:42) to the people under their jurisdiction (authority). He emphasized the importance of giving to the needy (Priest and the Levities, Orphans, Widows, and temporary Visitors) and he said that should be done in secrecy and so that only God can receive the praise, and then, rewards the giver (Mathew in 6:1-4) to avoid pride (LUKE 18:9–14).
Jesus also through his teaching gave clue to disciple about the best offertory in the lesson of the widow who gave her all (Mark 12:41-44, Luke 21:1-4) and a principle that was later adopted by the early church, whether out of necessity or conviction, when it agreed, out of their free will, not to only bring mandatory 10% of their income to the house of the Lord but 100% (Acts 4:32-3). We see that although the pledge was out of free will, some of the members, Ananias and the his wife Sapphire, who lied and brought only part of the income were cursed by God and died (Acts 5: 1- 11).
In Matt 22:21, Jesus reported to have said, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." This includes, therefore, giving what rightfully belong to God like tithe.
Basing on the teaching of the Bible (old and new testament), Christians are free to give above and beyond the tithe (tithe, pledges, and other offertories) to support the work of the Lord (preaching of gospel and support for the needy) and that is because all that we have, belong to Jesus. We should know that we can get a curse, just like Ananias and Sapphire, if we make pledges and deliberately fail to honor and meet it.
So, are we, the Christians, not under a curse (God’s punishment) if they don't tithe? My answer is yes. If we don’t tithe and ask God for forgiveness before we die. Just like Ananias and Sapphire, we can even miss eternal life with God.

Jesus did not only give life to the physical and spiritually died persons but He also proclaimed Himself judge of all (position strictly reserved for only God)
john 5:17-23 states that Jesus, who had power to give life like the father, also declared that He was given power to judge all and so that the Father and Him are both glorified. He acknowledged that only Him, the son, and not the father will judge world. The Bible says in Luke 20:42, “And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, and again says in Luke 20:43, “Till I make thine enemies thy footstool”. Is this, therefore, not another way of God ridiculing (making fun of) and humiliating those who did not obey the gospel and rejected to accept Jesus Christ as their personal saviour?
Matthew Henry in his commentary commented (expressed his opinion) that the Divine power of the miracle, as stated in John 5:17-23, proved Jesus to be the Son of God, and he, Jesus, declared that he worked with, and like unto his Father, as he saw good. According to Matthew Henry, the ancient enemies of Christ understood him, Jesus, and became more violent, charging him not only with Sabbath-breaking, but blasphemy, in calling God his own Father, and making himself equal with God (Proclaiming himself God). But all things now, and at the final judgment, are committed to the Son, purposely that all men might honour the Son, as they honour the Father; and everyone who does not thus honour the Son, whatever he may think or pretend, does not honour the Father who sent him.
The bible says the shameful past of the unjust and sinful, if not confessed and forgiven by God, will be revealed in presence of all (Luke 8:17/Matthew 10:26/Luke 12:2/Mark 4:22) but however a forgiven person’s shameful past will not be revealed during judgment day. The bible says in Isaiah 43:25, "I--yes, I alone--will blot out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again" and again in Isaiah 43:25 bible says, "Let us review the situation together, and you can present your case to prove your innocence".
There is no need to remain or walk in sin and be ashamed in the presence of God and Men.
This is the time to seek God while He may be found and call on Him and repent and accept Jesus as one's personal saviour while He is near (Isaiah 55:6). This is the time to avoid the wrath of God and also avoid memories of one's shameful past being revealed in the presence of all by just accepting Jesus and being saved.
How to repent and overcome sin
• Acknowledge your shameful sins before God
• Ask God in the name of Jesus to forgive all your sinful acts in your thoughts and action
• Ask God to cancel your name from the book of died and write it in the book of the living
• Ask Jesus fill you with his spirit and help you walk a walk that is accepted by him
• Reject the devil and all his future sinful plans concerning your life again
