WHICH IS IT? GOD OR WEALTH

Money has always had meaning for people beyond its purchasing power. for many, money means success, power, and even moral worth. The giving of money has always established the giver as a valued member of a community. 

Jesus saw this as a private act of love to be seen by God, not as public act for show and honor. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,  so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”                                               Matthew 6:3, 4

God or Wealth

Usually one is more important than the other. Wealth is the chief rival of our day to God. It is said that money is a good servant but a bad master. Personally we must master money or money masters you. Are we being choked by the wealth and riches of the world so that our faith cannot grow to maturity and bring a bountiful harvest? 

God or Wealth

“The seed sown among thorns is the one, who hears the word, but then worldly anxiety and the lure of riches choke the word and it bears no fruit.”                                                                          Matthew 13:1-23.

Then the cares and anxieties of the world and distractions of the age, and the pleasure and delight and false glamor and deceitfulness of riches, and the craving and passionate desire for other things creep in and choke and suffocate the Word, and it becomes fruitless.

God or Wealth The enjoyments in themselves may be innocent, which worldly prosperity enables one to indulge. These “choke” or “smother” the word; drawing off so much of one’s attention, absorbing so much of one’s interest, and using up so much of one’s time, that only the dregs of these remain for spiritual things.”They bring no fruit to perfection” Luke 8:14: a possible promise of fruit—which never ripens. You may realize the truth too late: God expects and requires fruit. 

God or Wealth

GENEROSITY

It’s easy to think that we’ve carved our own way, worked hard, proven ourselves, and been blessed by God as a result. There’s some truth to here, but these realities need not obscure the fact that we are all in the positions of influence that God has us as a result of the generosity of others.

We’ve all had help and we know it.

Generosity is not only primarily about money. We see a need around us and we seek to do something about it.

It often seems like this type of generosity is far more common for believers in the fourth-quarter of their lives. They know that their legacy hinges on the investment they make in others. But it’s often a rare trait for Christians in the prime of their lives.

How generous are you with your valuables; the stuff the costs money or money itself? We are not talking about your time or talent. “Teach us to give and not to count the cost.” St. Ignatius of Loyola

THREE REASONS TO BE GENEROUS WITH GRACE (MONEY)

Grace giving God or Wealth
  1. Grace (money) is entirely about God and His love. We give grace (money) to show love. “Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another”.                                                          1 John 4:11
  2. We give grace (money) to prevent conflict. “See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled.”                                                                                                                     Hebrews 12:15
  3. We give grace (money) because are called to serve one another. “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”                             1 Peter 4:10God or Wealth

Are we saying this will be easy? Nope! It won’t. In fact, giving grace (money) is hard. Giving grace requires laying down self and giving priority to others. Giving grace necessitates that we let go of our expectations and focus instead on encouraging others.

We demand grace (money) be given according to our need and yet we resist offering that same grace to others.

We cannot tell what may happen to us in this strange medley of life. But we can decide what we do with our talents and money. That is the real test of living: taking your gifts and making it a thing of worth and beauty. SAY: THE GREATEST GIFT TO GOD IS MYSELF!

BEARING FRUIT

“The seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirty-fold.”                                                                          Matthew 13:23

The shock element of this parable is in the math. The few seeds that find their way to good soil produce a super-abundant harvest. Jesus delighted his audience by pronouncing boldly that this small amount of seed would produce a crop thirty, sixty, or even a hundredfold greater than what was sown! Agricultural historians estimate that this farming method never yielded more than ten to fifteen percent gain.

God or Wealth                                                                                                                    1 Timothy 6:17

Real Christian generosity seems hard to come by, but when you do see it in action it can be life changing.

Unfortunately, old habits die hard. Over time we tend to hear what we want to hear and to see what we want to see. No matter how educated, talented, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat people and money ultimately tells all. People should use their talents to make money but money should not take away people’s attention from God, your Creator.

YOUR PRAYER

Lord, open my eyes so that I can see again. Open my ears so that I can hear your voice. Lift my heart to you so that I can experience a grace that will produce in my life an abundance that I cannot fathom and that I will share. Let my life become good soil, ready to receive the seed and be “one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit.”

A spiritual life is a life in which our security is based not in any created things, good as they may be, but in God, who is everlasting love. We probably will never be completely free from our attachment to the temporal world, but if we want to live in that world in a truly free way, we’d better not belong to it. “You cannot be the slave both of God and of money”.                                   Luke 16:13                                                                                                                   HENRI NOUWEN

GOD WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.God or Wealth

You Have been Given a Great Destiny.

“I love you. I love all My friends and there are many in the world.

There are too many though, that are lukewarm; they are neither hot nor cold. They do things out of routine but their heart is not in it. They go to church but it is to fulfill an obligation and there is not much joy in that.

My people, I hold you in My heart. Know that you are precious in My eyes for I gladly suffered and died for you to make you My brothers and sisters. My Father loves you for He created you and gave you life.

YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A GREAT DESTINY : to be united with Me forever in heaven. Come read the Bible, especially the Gospels, and learn how much I care for you. Learn from Me for I am your Savior and I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. 

The Bible is addressed to you, each one of you. Your lukewarmness comes from compromises with the spirit of the world. You are too occupied with material things. You are fascinated with what the world can give even though it does not last.

I am the only one who lasts forever. I alone can fulfill your deep desires and longings of your heart.  Break with the ties to the world and find joy in union with Me.  Open your heart to My touch and My love. I want a strong partnership with you. I love you.”

GENEROSITY IS SELFISH 2

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?

god proof

  • Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel  lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.” 
  • Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.

Christianity on a Table Napkin:

Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”                                                                                                                                     Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was, so that He could suffer in the flesh, and take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Savior – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.     Matthew 1:21  It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heart-broken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His hands.
To receive Jesus as your Savior… SAY:

Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive You as my Lord and Savior. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen
Your life will begin to change in an amazing way. Without expecting  anything, be sensitive to any dreams or visions. 

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                                     Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”.                                       Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in  the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising.  He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
