Scars of Iniquity or Faith
“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.”
GOD’S plan for us is to be able to live abundantly without starving, or worrying about the next bill…and so on. But, on the other hand HE tells us that we are not to live extravagantly. We are to give to the poor, and think not about tomorrow but only today.
I know it’s hard because the flesh tells us we never have enough, but to answer its call is not right.
True, we must live in a society where it now takes two incomes to pay the bills. Those of us who only have one income are finding it very hard to make ends meet. But, we see so many people who say they are called by GOD to give a prophecy, or message but they want you to pay for it! Send in $19.99 for the book, CD or whatever…
It’s just wrong.
But the worse case scenario is this…which I am witnessing more and more of!
Someone is being afflicted by demonic attachment and a person who is to help them CHARGES MONEY.
I’ve been asked to publish my work…but I can’t seem to do it. I’ve been asked to put up a DONATE button, but I can’t seem to do it. I’ve been asked if I would except money for helping someone who was afflicted with evil spirits, but I refuse!
No. I’m not perfect. I don’t profess to be, either.
The world calls out to people to be like Dick & Jane next door, but we are called for a different purpose.
I firmly believe that trials and tribulations are meant to teach us. I firmly believe that to live abundantly is NOT what people think it means…it means spiritually.
Grace means so many things.
Grace strikes us when we are in great discomfort, and even tragedy. It strikes us when we walk through the valley of evil…when dispair seems to destroy our joy and courage. It’s meant to pull us out of this world and into the next.
Justification by GRACE through FAITH.
Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
Matthew 21 is a perfect example of this situation.
19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
On our last day on this wicked world, we will be called before Jesus Christ. He will cast His eyes upon us for the final judgment, He will NOT look for diplomas, awards, or honors…but for scars.
YOU MUST ASK YOURSELF:
Do you life excessively? Do you seek earthly riches?
Do you help others? Do you feel the need to do more?
GO SERVE YOUR KING!
