FALSE TEACHING ON RICHES AND PROSPERITY
Some preachers, both in Africa and in America, claim THAT IF YOU ARE FINANCIALLY RICH, YOU WILL SERVE GOD BETTER. This is a grand unbiblical, false teaching of demons in this end time. If you want to serve Jesus Christ well and make heaven, you will listen to what He Himself says about riches and wealth, not what the agents of Satan are saying in the name of pastor, bishop, evangelist or daddy G.O. Jesus Christ taught about riches and wealthy so clear that no serious minded Christian should be misled. Sometimes I wonder how popular and acceptable the doctrines of demons on riches and prosperity is among today’s Christians as if Jesus never taught about it, why can’t we follow the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ on this topic instead of being deceived and carried away by the teachings of Satan through his agents?
Jesus Christ says if you are rich, it becomes more difficult for you to make heaven. Matthew 19:23, “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.” This Bible verse is a direct statement from Jesus Christ, which the prosperity preachers will never talk about, they will even wish to remove it from the Bible. What it means is that the more you are financially rich, the more it becomes hard for you to make heaven, the more you need extra grace, watchfulness and purity. But on the contrary, the teachings of Satan through his enormous agents – prosperity preachers – says that if you are financially rich, it helps you to serve God better. Have you not heard such thing before and believe it? That if you are financially prosperous and rich, you will be able to serve God very well. You will never find such in the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ or His apostles or even among our contemporary fathers of faith, but only among the agents of Satan who call themselves prosperity preachers, motivational speakers, senior pastors, daddy G.O of Satan, bishops of demons and evangelists of hell.
The teaching that more riches makes easier for a Christian to serve God is on the contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ and from the pit of hell. And many are being deceived today, that is the reason many Christians are looking for riches by all means because they believe it will help them to serve God better. The only thing to makes it easier to serve God is grace, not financial riches or prosperity.
The teachings of demons exalts prosperity more than purity, and that you can see in many churches’ preaching, prayer points, and among their preachers books and CDs, they preach and prayer on financial riches and prosperity as if that is the purpose of Jesus Christ dying on the cross.
You know what the Bible says about any preacher or pastor that preaches or prays on riches than righteousness or on prosperity than purity, such person is useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. – 1 Timothy 6:5
Bible does not say you should continue to attend a church where financial riches is exalted than righteousness, where prosperity is preached often more than purity of life, and it does not says you should keep reading books, watching program or listen to CDs of such preachers, you know what the Bible says? It says withdraw yourself from such. 1 Timothy 6:5.
When you attend a church where 6 out of 10 prayer points center on financial breakthrough and open doors of earthly blessings, where 6 out of 10 consecutive preaching and messages are about prosperity, favour, grace, glory of financial or material blessings and earthly stuffs, then you are in a mortuary, not a sanctuary. The Bible warns you to withdraw from such before you also become a living death Christian. 1 Timothy 6:5.
And you as a Christian, if 6 out 10 f your prayer points, center on riches of life, prosperity or problems of life, then you have become a spiritual member of Laodicea church. If your personal pursuits, program or plans are all about living a comfortable or prosperous life, to possess more of things of this life, to be popular, to have more money or to get the latest of materials in this passing world, then you are a living dead. You need to rededicate your life to Jesus afresh lest you perish with this world
The Bible says in the end-time many will be deceived by the doctrines of prosperity and riches, many churches that started well will end up at the feet of Satan. And are there not many who are falling apart? Are there not many Christians who are following the doctrines of Balaam? Are there not many who will miss heaven? But you must strive to make it to heaven in this perilous time.
It is all about priority! When we get our priority right to make first thing first, to seek the kingdom of God and its righteous living first, to pray and preach first on the kingdom of God, to live first for the kingdom of God, to work first for the kingdom of God in evangelism and good deed of sharing and supporting others with our riches, then prosperity from God in our lives will not become problem to our spiritual lives.
