THE PROSPERITY MESSAGE, MESSES PEOPLE UP….
I have been a Christian for a long time now. And I just see how, one can miss it, by getting caught up in the “prosperity message.”
It is so deceiving, to try and search for God, for a financial miracle, but you don’t work on your heart, or your soul. You don’t make the priority, of Salvation, for you or others the goal. Learning scripture. Knowing Gods heart.
I have seen people, who grasp onto that message, and even believing leaders, who are so full of it, that they have lost their focus on why Christ died on the cross for us.
They don’t see, how when Christ was on this earth, He was offended, by their selling of this or that, and He turned the tables on them, angrily. In the temple.
We are called to seek the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all things will be added.
BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. MATTHEW 6:33. KING JAMES.
I see the fruit of it, from some that I even love dearly, but they do not make knowing God the priority, they are always dreaming, for this house, or that car, or that which they can compete with the Jones.
I see they support many of these leaders, who say very questionable things.
Even in this election, there are some who are so blinded by power, and wealth, that they think that someone, with this kind of prestige, makes them the answer to Americas problems. Yet they do not see the true fruit of a fake. A counterfeit. A mean spirited person.
So they lose focus on what God says. It does mess a person up.
And I can say this, as a testimony, because when I first started in ministry, I thought, everybody asked for money, and that was how you measured success in ministry.
God has a way of correcting us. Changing our hearts, and I am so glad He did mine. Greed, the prosperity message, is just an illusion to what the enemy can do to confuse a person.
You see, there is a lost world out there, and when people make the prosperity message, their goal, they miss out, in seeing what Gods goal and vision is.
He wants us to be saved. To grow, to know how precious our salvation is. To know His power, His sovereignty, and to reach out for the lost. To reach for the Kingdom for others, and their salvation. To see with hearts, love.
Its just sad, I guess, its just a sign of the times.
But it is not to late, to repent, to stop and see, the goal.
You know, God is not blind to many of us who are in need of a financial miracle, but He works on our hearts first. He corrects us. If we do not receive this correction, we are, our own worst enemy.
God can change things. If only we would work for the Kingdom, for His goal, then He would bless many of us. Our businesses, would become His business, to bless.
But till then, just look at the fruit. It is rotten, it is not what God intended.
The Prosperity message, does mess up people.
