In the Book_of_Proverbs” Proverbs10:22 it says: The blessings of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. In Mark 10:17 a rich man ran up to and kneeled to him asking him what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life. Well the rich man admitted to not committing adultery, killing, stealing or bearing false witness and not defrauding or dishonoring his father and mother. However, Jesus answered the rich man In Mark 10:21 and said:
One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. In Mark 10:22, the rich man went away grieved: for he had GREAT possessions. You see the issue brothers and sisters is not the riches, it is that the rich man deeply trusted in his riches. Many of use misinterpret these scriptures and believe that God wants us to be poor. This in untrue… he wants us to trust in him not riches.
Indeed the rich man trusted his money more than he trusted His God who blessed him with the money. The kingdom of God meant less to him than his money. This is the case with many of us. As long as we have money, we are in a safe haven. Look in Proverbs 18:11 where it says, that a rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit. Do not allow your wealth to cause you to miss everlasting riches…
AMEN AND AMEN.
Greetings and blessing to you and your family. May ministering Angels keep you all safe.
Proverbs 6:2 says thou art snared with the words of thy mouth; thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.
Isaiah 8:15 says And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared and be taken.
However, in Proverbs 12:13 it says the wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips but the JUST shall come out of trouble.
Brothers and sisters, have you ever watched a boxing matched and noticed that both opponents are trying to weaken one another by finding the weak pressure points? Well once an opponent finds that weak spot, he or she pounces away at that same spot, until the other one is knocked out or down and cannot get up. In the same manner, we take part in a daily spiritual boxing match. For instance, if the enemy knows that a particular thing or person annoys you, he pounces away at the place of annoyance until you either put up a good fight or get knocked out or down and cannot get up. Well the enemy takes note of what we say and acts upon it. He locates the strong holds in our life then takes advantage of those weaknesses then he tries to take us out. If we are not accustomed to meditating on the word of God, we make his quest so much easier. Be careful not to get into matches especially when you do not have on you boxing gloves, which are the anointed instructions God gave us in his Holy Word.
Amen and Amen.
