I am deeply grieved when I see people making money off the Name of Jesus…
Recently I saw a testimony that touched my heart of someone coming to Christ on one of those youtube channels that pull testimonies from everywhere… I thought wow, Jesus gave me some of those same revelations when I first came to Him. I just so happened to find her channel today with her whole channel about Jesus being monetized… yep… you gotta watch 2 commercials if you want to hear what Jesus has done in her life and what He wants her to speak about. Oh, and theres a link to “donate to her ministry”… it’s like everytime I see this stuff my heart sinks. Gianna said its expected from the world, but it hurts from those who claim Christ.
When I see the monetization I know Christ is not in it. He doesnt let His sheep profit from the things He teaches us for free… or ask for donations while using His Name on our platform. idk why it’s so grieving to me but it is.
People trust Christ to save their soul but not pay their bills? God has always been faithful to me in that area… taught me to only ask Him for what I need. There have been many times if He didn’t come thru for me I would be on the streets. Literally. He is able to provide. Sovreignly.
Do people claiming Christ really think He is giving them words and encouragement for others so they can make money from it? Turn His Name into a source of income? Call it “ministry”?? Do they think that Jesus is telling them to collect money from others so He can tell THEM what to spend it on? Are they Gods middleman in regards to money?
I see some “discernment” ministries making money (monetizing) by mocking souls that are perishing. Let that sink in.
I see it starting out w loving Christ and going into a downward spiral of being puffed up thinking you know Jesus better than everyone else, and prophetic words and some anointing from 3 or 4 thousand years ago that God wants to give you. You hit a thousand subscribers and then it’s time to turn on the monetization. Have a link to donate to you because you sit in your living room and encourage people in the Lord? Jesus is not in these things.
How come it seems like people utter the Name Jesus think it comes w a paycheck? You have the nerve to ask for a donation to tell me about Jesus while telling me that you know Him? Monetize a testimony about hell? For REAL?!? People building their own kingdoms and putting Christs name on it.
You want to be paid for sharing your love with others? In the real world that’s called prostitution.
Just a small rant.
