Speaking about how the Lord told him people are bound
‘I’m about to set you free.
Addictions that you had for years are about to fall off of you.
I’m telling you, you don’t have to do anything but just receive, that’s it. ... this is your night, this is your night as the high priest standing in this Holy place.
I’m gonna put this shofar to my mouth and the moment I blow it every demon is coming off your shoulders, outta your mind, outta your finances. When I blow it I want you to shout like you never shouted a shout of victory and freedom that you will ... are you ready?’
(He blows the whistle and everyone is screaming.)
Rod Parsley says:
“I am superior to the forces of darkness.”
But the bible says:
Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile thee flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
But these speak evil of those things which they know not:
walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaking great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
‘I just love to talk about money,’ he told them. ‘I just love to talk about your money. Let me be very clear — I want your money. I deserve it. This church deserves it.’
“Parsley, his wife, Joni, and their two young children live in a five-bedroom house they have built next to his parents’ house on a 21-acre compound in northwest Fairfield County. The compound has an electronic gate at the road to discourage uninvited visitors, and stables and a corral have been built in one corner. Rod Parsley’s home is worth $857,090, say records at the Fairfield County recorder’s office. His parents’ home, also new, is valued at $831,480. Each was built with a $200,000 mortgage taken out in 1990. ... Parsley also owns a $500,000 jet, a seven-passenger Hawker Siddeley 125.”
Rod Parsley says:
“In the beginning, He spoke the Word, and out of the nothingness of space, there was suddenly — Life! Using just His Word, God invented the sun, the moon, and endless galaxies of stars. ... If the Lord and His Word never change, and if He created life with a spoken thought, then He is still able to speak into existence whatever you need today. Healing is not hard. It is as simple and easy as saying, ‘I believe your Word, Lord. Now speak. Create new life in me.’"
“Rod Parsley is a fast rising star in Pentecostal/charismatic circles. ... sent right to your home is a glossy packet stating ‘Release the anointing ... Receive Your Miracle.’ Lo-and-behold enclosed is a MIRACLE PRAYER CLOTH and I am supposed to:
(1) RECEIVE this prayer cloth as your point of contact
(2) PLACE this prayer cloth in the envelope provided and
(3) BELIEVE God to receive YOUR miracle ...
I am to do these 3 things and RUSH my MIRACLE PRAYER CLOTH back to Pastor Rod (hopefully with a donation) and wait for my miracle to manifest. ‘As you send me your prayer cloth and your most generous gift toward our Breakthrough ministry, I will send you my 3-tape audio cassette series, ”Releasing the Anointing ... Your Breakthrough to Victory.“‘
In God’s Answer to Insufficient Funds,
Rod Parsley teaches his distorted idea of the gospel:
“For you to sit in physical bondage is to deny the power of the gospel. ... Most people would have no trouble shouting whatsoever if I said, ‘To remain in the bondage of sin and death is to deny the power of the gospel.’ But if I said ‘What about healing for your body?’ the amens would not be quite so loud. If I said the same thing about poverty and financial bondage, it would get as quiet as a tomb. If I said that for you to live from paycheck to paycheck is to deny the power of the gospel, many of you would get angry. In Luke 4:18 ... Notice there was an anointing to preach good news to the poor. A lot of people don’t like to look at that because good news to a poor man is that he doesn’t have to be poor anymore. We have multitudes saved, delivered and filled with the Holy Ghost, and many are healed, yet over 90% of the church of Jesus Christ are living in absolute financial bondage. All the while, Jesus is saying, ‘I’ve been anointed to preach the good news to the poor.’ ... You have held back the flow. You have denied the perpetual propulsion of power that could deliver you from not only sin and sickness but from the horrible stench of poverty.”
