“For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:38-39
What is wrong with people today ? What is wrong with the nations of the earth ?
Quite simply… they are all “doing their own thing” and they have no interest in submitting to God’s authority.
In fact, the mantra of this 21st Century is, “do your own thing” …. people are BOTH EXPECTED to “do their own thing” and they are also EXPECTED to be TOLERANT of everybody else who is “doing their own thing”… God is not pleased with this generation.
What are the Televangelists preaching ? … instead of warning people of the fires of hell…. instead of telling them that with much tribulation we must enter the Kingdom of Heaven….. instead of focussing on personal HOLINESS (without which no man shall see the LORD)….. they are encouraging people to believe God for riches… to “sow seeds” towards “prosperity”… are these Televangelists any different from Amway or any other network marketing business ?….. Woe unto them, because they are deceiving the people…. Woe unto them because they are both living and selling a lifestyle that is totally contrary to Scripture (while selecting various verses out of Scripture to “legitimize” their corruption of the Gospel).
THE FUTURE…. is glorious for the Children of God… but not for the FLESH…. is there any point in heaping up riches for yourself after the flesh ?
Here is what you can look forward to… all you rich and prosperous people….. who have chosen to enjoy this earthly existence at the expense of your immortal souls….
1. MORE traffic jams.
2. MORE daily frustration and stress.
3. MORE pollution, sickness and disease
4. MORE natural disasters, economic collapses and worry
All you Televangelists sitting on your pretty stages in expensive television studios… its time you read and understood Matthew 5:3 – 12 and Luke 6:20 – 34
Do not use your charitable HUMANITARIAN work overseas as an excuse for your own personal affluence and opulance… are not the souls of men more valuable to you ?….. Preach the GOSPEL OF CHRIST and stop begging for money….. do you believe that GOD is able to send you what money is required WITHOUT YOUR HELP?…. do you think you need to “help Him out” by begging for it ?
The problem is… you are functioning after the ways of men…. and not according to the laws of God…. so do NOT hold up your material prosperity as a “sign” that you have the blessings of God
Prayer for today:
Help us , O heavenly Father, to soberly examine our lives even as we commit our time and talents to You… for it is not by our might…. nor by our power….. but by your Spirit that Your work is accomplished in the Earth…. we can never claim any of the Glory, we are but unprofitable servants saved by your mercy
