WE ARE ABUNDANTLY SUPPLIED WITH GODLY RICHES IN CHRIST JESUS.
“May grace (God’s favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature.
For this very reason, adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence), And in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control, and in [exercising] self-control [develop] steadfastness (patience, endurance), and in [exercising] steadfastness [develop] godliness (piety), And in [exercising] godliness [develop] brotherly affection, and in [exercising] brotherly affection [develop] Christian love.
For as these qualities are yours and increasingly abound in you, they will keep [you] from being idle or unfruitful unto the [full personal] knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). For whoever lacks these qualities is blind, [spiritually] shortsighted, seeing only what is near to him, and has become oblivious [to the fact] that he was cleansed from his old sins. Because of this, brethren, be all the more solicitous and eager to make sure (to ratify, to strengthen, to make steadfast) your calling and election; for if you do this, you will never stumble or fall. Thus there will be richly and abundantly provided for you entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”. (2 Peter 1:2-11 AMPC).
Riches are Established in Christ Jesus.
The blessing of the LORD, it makes RICH, and he adds no sorrow with it.
2 Corinthians 8:9
For all of you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was RICH, yet for your sakes he became poor, that all of you through his poverty might be RICH.
But my God shall supply all of your need according to his RICHES in glory by Christ Jesus.
+To seek RICHES outside of Christ is idolatry.
+Christ is the means by which we overcome poverty, and true RICHES are a byproduct of our relationship with Him.
+Don’t seek RICHES and expect Christ to be added to you, but instead seek Christ and riches will be added to you. Amen!
Matthew 6:33 KJVS
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED yrou are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
