“When we have no room for the Word of God in our lives we have no room for success.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 14.

‘Pastor’ Chris Pringle tells the story of she and Phil Pringle suffered tremendously… to obtain a $3.5 million house. (It’s tough having a knife in your heart.)

EDIT: If YouTube doesn’t load to the correct location, Chris gives her story at 36:00.

If you would like to see where their $3.5 million house is and what it looks like, read our article here:

My! What Big Faith You Have!

IS JESUS THE LORD OF YOUR FINANCIAL HARVEST?

Did Chris Pringle really have an encounter with Jesus? Would you listen to her ‘Lord of the Harvest’? The Apostle Paul has this to say to people like Phil and Chris Pringle:

“And what I do I will continue to do, in order to undermine the claim of [Phil and Chris Pringle] who would like to claim that in their boasted mission they work on the same terms as we do. [Phil and Chris Pringle] are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of lightSo it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.2 Corinthians 11:12-15. (ESV)

So if Prophet Chris Pringle had Jesus speak to her, it is worth testing to see if Chris Pringle follows the true Jesus. This ‘Jesus’ of Chris Pringle revealed that he was Lord of the Harvest. Chris knew that this ‘Jesus’ was saying he was Lord of her financial harvest.

The only time we see Jesus mention the phrase ‘Lord of the Harvest’ is in Matthew 9. But to understand the context of this phrase, we need to understand that the early manuscripts did not chapter breaks. Matthew 9:35-38 and 10:1-7 reads:

And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”

Here is the context:

      1. “Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom.”
      2. Jesus saw the crowds were, “harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd”.
      3. In response to what he saw, Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest”.
      4. What did Jesus (the Lord of the Harvest) do? These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “… Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”

It is clear that Jesus is not telling his disciples he is “Lord” of their financial harvest. Jesus is only keen of harvesting souls for the kingdom. As Jesus says in Matthew 10: 8-10,

“You received without paying; give without pay. Acquire no gold nor silver nor copper for your belts, no bag for your journey, nor two tunics nor sandals nor a staff, for the laborer deserves his food.”

It is clear Jesus considers his disciples his labourers. It is clear that these labourer’s mission was to preach the gospel so that man can be saved. It is clear that Jesus did not have ‘prosperity’ on his mind when he commissioned them, he had salvation.

What Chris Pringle is peddling is classic Word of Faith heresy. Jesus’ ministry is all about saving souls. The only competent thing Chris Pringle’s Jesus can do is harvest the cash from people’s wallets.

CONCLUSION

So how should we conclude Chris Pringle’s antics? Did Chris see a demon parading as an “angel of light” and fell for its deception. Or is Chris purposely and deceitfully manipulating people to give hard earned money to the conniving money-grubby Miracle Offering?
