GETTING RICH

Did you know that money cannot buy your way into heaven or if you are a very unfortunate soul, out of hell? Yet most people love the idea of getting rich. They read books and listen to everyone who has an idea on how to get rich but they fail to hear what God has to say on acquiring riches or seeking it before Him.

Now keep in mind that God never said not to acquire riches but He warns you not to love it. Why you may ask because the love of money is the root of all types of evil. Some people are so eager for it that they have this craving for riches and because they end up drifting from God they inherit more grief or sorrows (1 Timothy 6:10).

Now I am not knocking anyone for craving money, I used to be one of those money grabbing, money seeking disillusioned fools. Then I realized that Godliness with contentment is great gain. I brought nothing into this world and it is a proven fact that once I depart from this world I can’t take anything out (1 Timothy 6 :6-7). Now let me ask you this, have you ever seen a moving company or a U-haul truck following a funeral procession? Want to know why? It’s because you can’t take anything with you when you die.

Earthly riches have no use or value to us in Heaven nor hell. There is no currency exchange. Do not take my word as the gospel, just listen to what Luke 9:25 says,

“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?”

All the pleasures in this world are just gratifications of the flesh, which, in the long run, turns to greed. Pleasures eventually take your mind, focus and thoughts off of Christ which is detrimental to us. King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 2: 1-11 tells us that he tried it all with all the wealth he accumulated, yet it did nothing for him. It was not satisfying, fulfilling, nor gratifying. He said it was like chasing the wind.

God wants us to enjoy the things He has provided for us and we must remember that everything we have and hold dear is from the hand of God. lets face it everyone, without God we would have nothing. The things we work hard for and would do anything to accomplish or recieve are just temporary luxurys and these things do not last forever.  What does last forever though is salvation and you can only get salvation through the acceptance of Gods only son Jesus Christ. Don’t take my word for it just read John 3:16-17 and John 14:6.

Now if it is your desire to accept Gods gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ then you need to go to the top of this blog. Once there click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God the father almighty. Thank you lord for using me to get your message out through this blog.

NEED MONEY

How badly do you want it, and what are you willing to do, or prepared to do, to get it? There is nothing wrong with money, having it is not bad. It’s when you crave for it; will kill for it; steal to get it; do anything for it, that’s when it becomes evil, and then a problem.

The love of money, is the root of all evil, yes, it’s biblical (1 Timothy 6:10). When you allow it to dominate your life, then it diverts your attention from the maker, owner, and the giver of life, who is God.

I must let you know that you can’t serve two masters (Matthew 6:24), you will love one more than the other. The ones who have money in abundance, will do everything to keep it, and get more, the ones who don’t have it, will do anything to get it, yet they both forget who really, and truly owns, and has total control of it.

How sad it is that people would rather gain the whole world, and lose their soul (Luke 9:25). People fail to realize that money fails to solve life’s biggest problems, such as death, cure for diseases, lengthen their life, or the big one, give everlasting life.  A person’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things they possess (Luke 12:15). We need to break free from the evil gravitational lures of money, and seek the kingdom of God as our number one priority, and goal, then everything else will be added to you (Matthew 6:33). The answer is simple, seek God then look for the addition of wealth, health, and eternal life. Are you interested? Do you want it?

Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me you will be set for life. Hey! The streets of heaven is made of gold (Revelation 21:21), what else can I say.

WOW!

How awesome is our God.

I GIVE MY HEAVENLY FATHER THE PRAISE, GLORY, THANKS, AND HONOR, FOR USING ME, TO BRING THIS MESSAGE TO YOU. I PRAY IT BLESSED YOU, AS IT DID ME, AND YOU WILL ALLOW HIM TO LEAD, AND GUIDE YOU TO HIS TRUTHS IN JESUS NAME I PRAY, AMEN.

TEMPTATIONS

Temptation is the hardest thing to overcome.

A bag full of $100 bills, was left by a guard on the sidewalk, and the armored car pulled off. What would you do? All your bills are overdue? The car broke down, you are hungry, about to be evicted, again what would you do? I already know, that the person who is not a Christian would take it and split, but if you are a Christian what would you do?  Would it be wrong to keep it? Would you think it’s an act of God to supply your needs? Would you pay or give 10% of it as tithe and offering?

Well to be honest with you, keeping it would be a sin. Honesty is always the best policy. You did not receive it as a gift, and you did not work for it, so that would be considered stealing. The three main temptations of sin has just presented itself to us:

The lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life (Luke 4:5-12). We always ask God, not to lead us into temptations (Matthew 6:13), so we shouldn’t have a problem turning the money in. It’s when we yield to the temptation that it becomes a sin, and a curse.

The Bible teaches us, “not to love the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2 : 15-17). Sorry, but I have to break it down for you. “The love of money is the root of all evil…” (1 Timothy 6:10).  “…you can’t serve God, and money.” (Matthew 6:24).

The Bible, clearly states, “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything will be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33); This one is the true answer, “But my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory, by Christ Jesus,” (Philippians 4:19) not your glory, or man’s glory, but His (God’s).

Yes, I know it’s a tough one. But that money would bring more misery than prosperity. Take a look at James 5:1-3, Proverbs 10:2, Proverbs 15:16 and Matthew 6:19-21. Now how do you feel after reading those scriptures? God is always faithful to deliver the Christian out of any temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13). That’s how good God is.

Do you know Him? Do you want to know Him? Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make.

I give Our Heavenly Father, the glory, honor, thanks, and the praise for using me to share His message to us, I pray that He will keep, guide and lead us into His will, and ways, now, and forever in Jesus Name, amen.
