Money

Do You Use MONEY or Does Money Use You?

In the name of Jesus; may God be blessed as we choose to prosper through Him.

Have you ever heard a preacher say that Jesus had nowhere to lay His head? I don’t believe that they realize that God will hold them responsible for misleading their flock, and how ridiculous they sound by misrepresenting the Bible for their own financial gain. Their purpose is to try to convince people to give them money as they become richer and unconcerned about us remaining poor. If you are concerned about tithes and offerings, there are many ways to fulfill this goal. For example, you can give tithes and offerings to your family, you can tithe your services/labor to the church that you attend by multiplying the hours you work by the hourly rate of the preacher’s pay or your pay (whichever is greater) and give them a receipt for your services in the tithes and offerings basket. Why should the preacher get paid and you don’t?You can also personally donate to people in the community. Pray and follow the guidance of The Holy Spirit regarding tithes and offerings.God does not intend for the preacher to get rich and you remain in spiritual, mental, or physical poverty. Anyhow, ABBA Father is the creator of Heaven, earth, and everything above and below. I do believe that God blessed His only begotten son to never be destitute, and Joseph(Jesus’ earthly father) was a carpenter. I am sure that Joseph taught Jesus His trade so that Jesus would always be able to find financially gainful work. Jesus was never poor. He was traveling and stopped to check into an inn. The owner told Jesus that all the rooms were taken. Jesus did not impose on the other occupants. He chose to leave to find lodging somewhere else. Jesus was a giver and gave many gifts to the poor. He did not live off of others, he was not codependent, nor did He become a liability to other people. Jesus wore rags and tattered clothing because He wanted to. He had a selection of attire as was evidenced at the place called Golgotha. When He was crucified, the Roman Soldiers bidded for the locks of His robe.They did not desire anything that did not bring them financial gain. Jesus’ robe was purple, which was the color of royalty, and made of the finest silk. We are to love God first as we seek the spiritual wealth of His kingdom, walk humbly as Jesus did, and earn our living. It is not righteous behavior to scam and cheat other people, or to love materialistic possessions. We are to obtain the wealth of God first, and He will guide us to righteously obtain His earthly wealth. The only thing that Satan controls is his lies and deceit. He doesn’t love hell or any of its occupants. It is not the possession of money that is evil, but it is the love of money that is the root to all evil. In other words, if we forsake God’s righteousness, morals, and standards for money; we are choosing to sell our souls to Satan. It’s our free will to choose. Our every decision determines our soul’s journey.

Galatians 6:10(KJV), “10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”

  • Holy Spirit: We have the chance to show one another compassion, particularly the souls that honor God.

Ephesians 3:20–21(KJV)’ “20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

  • Holy Spirit: 20. presently honoring the one who is capable of fulfilling our prayers, based on His occupying our souls, 21. Given to Him our salutation from ancestral dilemmas, eternal existence. Hallelujah.

Romans 8:6(KJV), “6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

  • Holy Spirit: Existing for worldly desires is spiritual death; however spiritualism denotes living with Jesus.

The only way to enjoy a life of happiness is through salvation by choosing to accept Jesus as your savior. Jesus is the alpha and omega of God’s kingdom. Even though Satan knows this, he will always try to get you to believe his lies of being the ultimate power, so that he can eventually leave your soul and possibly many of your family members souls in hell without his companionship. God is omnipotent as evidenced by His instructing Jesus to chain Satan in hell. Lucifer is not God’s son: he is a fallen angel, the great manipulator, and it is not of his delight to presently occupy the abyss with his followers; although his choices caused his demise, he too shall bow on his knees and confess that Jesus is Lord. I pray that we make wise choices.
