Is your pastor/minister preaching about money ?

Is he/she asking you to sow your seed and promising you that God will bless you because of the seed you have sown

Is he/she  promising you that the more you give the more you will  be blessed ?

ALL THESE ARE LIES FROM THE DEVIL !!

Wake up and see through these lies !!!  These pastors /ministers are only misusing the name of the Lord and the Word of God to get people coming to their churches so that they could have a job  and also many of them to enrich themselves.

The Devil said to Jesus:

Mat 4:8  Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. Mat 4:9  “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Luk 4:6  And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. Luk 4:7  If you worship me, it will all be yours.”

JESUS SAID ABOUT THE RICH: :

Mat19:23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Mat19:24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

Mat19:21  Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Luk6:24  “But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort.

Luk12:21  “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

Luk 12:16  And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest.

Luk 12:17  He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’

Luk 12:19  And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”‘

Luk 12:20  “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

Luk 12:21  “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

Mar 4:18  Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word;

Mar 4:19  but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.

Rev_3:17  You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

PETER SAID ABOUT THE FALSE TEACHERS :

2Pe 2:1  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves.

2Pe 2:2  Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.

2Pe 2:3  IN THEIR GREED these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

THE DESCIPLES WERE POOR: Luk_6:20  Looking at his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.

LEARN FROM THE PAST :

THE PHARSIEES WHO WERE THE PASTORS/MINISTERS IN THE TIME OF JESUS ALSO LOVED MONEY WERE GREEDY

Luk_16:14  The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus.

Mat_23:25  “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.

THE TEACHERS OF THE LAW AND PHARISEES(Pastors of that time ) ALSO LOVED TO TRAVEL: Mat_23:15  “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.

Life is not about money and prosperity :

1Ti 6:11  But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.

Jas_2:5  Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?

Luk_12:15  Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

1Ti 6:9  Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

1Ti 6:10  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

PAUL SAID:

1Co_5:11  But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

1Co_6:10  nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Eph_5:5  For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person–such a person is an idolater–has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

1Ti 6:7  For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

1Ti 6:8  But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.

1Ti 6:9  THOSE WHO WANT TO BE RICH fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

1Ti 6:10  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

James said:

Jas_2:6  But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court?

Jas_5:1  Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you.

JESUS SAID :

Luk 12:22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.

Luk 12:23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.

Luk 16:19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day.

Luk 16:20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores

Luk 16:21  and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

Luk 16:22  “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried.

Luk 16:23  In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side.

Luk 16:24  So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

Luk 16:25  “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony.

Luk_12:33  Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.

Luk_14:13  But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,

Luk_14:21  “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’

Luk_18:22  When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Luk_19:8  But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”
