The Devil is a Liar: MLM Recruiting


If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly My disciples. John 8:31 AMP

What does it mean that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32) True disciples will know the truth. More than that, their eyes are opened to a greater understanding of the truth.
The devil replicates the Divine with his signature twist of perversion. Not perversion sexually regarding this topic, but yes, he has done that as well.

I want to speak to you about how the devil has given the world a divine model in scripture and perverted it with the intent to be millionaires. Many have been involved either in both purchasing or as a distributor/sponsor in Multi Level Marketing or know someone who has or perhaps still is.

Recently, I watched a documentary Betting on Zero*. An in-depth investigation of Herbalife with "controversial hedge fund titan," billion dollar investor Bill Ackman exposing the company's fraudulent practices for a gain of money, which turns out is not as bad it sounds.
Amazon Reviewer: This might be the best Wall Street movie ever made, but it's more than that. It's a movie about the American Dream, what people will do for "30 pieces of silver," and what the right measuring stick for success really is.
Interesting, minutes into the explaining of a pyramid scheme the Holy Spirit revealed a Truth. This is a perversion of the Divine -- disciples making disciples -- a duplication -- all the while God the Father (The Ultimate Upline) getting all the glory.
The Divine Rise of Multilevel Marketing (November 23, 2015) Christianity Today Magazine - Similarly, personal-finance expert Dave Ramsey tells his listeners that, while many MLM companies are legitimate businesses, they take a lot of work. At root, Ramsey in a video recording for his radio show, MLM success is about recruiting and retaining a sales team, not selling products. “You need to understand the business you’re in,” he said. “And the business you’re in is recruiting.”


Study the Scriptures
Matthew 28:18-20
Life Application Study Bible: We are to go -- whether it is next door or to another country -- and make disciples. It is not an option, but a command to all who call Jesus, "Lord." We are not all evangelists in the formal sense, but we have all received gifts that we can use to help fulfill the Great Commission.

Our fruit in the Kingdom of God is not found in ourselves or in what we've accomplished but our fruit is the evidence in others that we have loved, taught and guided in the Ministry of Jesus Christ. And this fruit shall remain!

I encourage you to dig deep and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal His Truth that you will be whole, and prosperous in the Kingdom of God and equipped for every good work. Be cleansed by the washing of the Word as you gain ground and cultivate in the Spirit of God!

*I am not in agreement with the calling of ancestors, Mother Earth and the "energy" of the Holy Spirit in prayer as documented in this film.

Herbalife Refunds (January 2017) The Federal Trade Commission is mailing checks to nearly 350,000 people who lost money running Herbalife businesses. The checks are the result of a July 2016 settlement with the FTC that required Herbalife to pay $200 million and fundamentally restructure its business. 
Review
In December 2016, I was making ready for 2017 spiritually through revelation and declaration in Walk Confidently in The Truth.  God has given me numerous opportunities thus far to speak and stand for His Truth, which is hidden in my heart. He's revealing and uncovering daily. I am both humbled and sometimes shocked by this new level of understanding through the gifts of the Spirit. Still, I press in and keep vigil in the secret sacred place with the Lord.

My heart for every reader is that they receive the Truth and are changed!

2 Corinthians 3:12-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Since we have such a [glorious] hope and confident expectation, we speak with great courage, and we are not like Moses, who used to put a veil over his face so that the Israelites would not gaze at the end of the glory which was fading away. But [in fact] their minds were hardened [for they had lost the ability to understand]; for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is removed [only] in Christ. But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil [of blindness] lies over their heart; but whenever a person turns [in repentance and faith] to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom]. And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.
