Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own BELLY; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
False preachers preaching godly words ,but their heart motives are hungry for money, fame and praise. Thus the Lord Jesus Christ did not us teach us to become great in heaven must be a servant of all? If material prosperity is the standard of faith why some apostles live in poverty and died in martyrdom in following the Lord?
As Paul said ” 1 cor 4:10 We are fools for the Messiah’s sake, but you are wise in the Messiah. We are weak, but you are strong. You are honored, but we are dishonored.
11 We are hungry, thirsty, dressed in rags, brutally treated, and homeless, right up to the present.
12 We wear ourselves out from working with our own hands. When insulted, we bless. When persecuted, we endure.
13 When slandered, we answer with kind words. Even now we have become the filth of the world, the scum of the universe.
Thus the Lord does not teach us lay up treasure in heaven for real prosperity?
Matthew 16:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
This is the real prosperity Lord Jesus Christ teaching His disciples, for today many preach about the worldly riches and abundance that only perishes. Preaching another jesus, another gospel. Is this the message God wants for His People to be rich physically, but poor spiritually?Without preparing people for his coming, a bride that is pure and holy. Thus the message of prosperity can withstand is time of trabulation?
Revelation 3:17 You say, “I am rich. I have become wealthy. I don’t need anything.” Yet you don’t realize that you are miserable, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.
18 Therefore, I advise you to buy from me gold purified in fire so you may be rich, white clothes to wear so your shameful nakedness won’t show, and ointment to put on your eyes so you may see.
19 I correct and discipline those whom I love, so be serious and repent!
PLEASE correct your theology. HE IS COMING!
