Equating the value of money to the power of God is a grievous sin least likely to be pardoned. It’s the way of the world for the power of God. Our money perishes with us, because we thought seek to secure the gifts of God for a profit! Motivated by bitterness we resort to the practice of witchcraft and sorcery. Searing souls from digesting the gospel of Jesus we tally the cost.
‘You will always have poor people with you, but you will not always have me.’ Those were the words of Jesus. Neither the rich nor the poor can claim royalties for His gospel. That right is reserved for the collective body of Christ. Collecting souls that enriches the kingdom of God. Which is you and I jointly fit together according to the callings of His Father.
Rich nor poor countries has no merit with God least they boast of themselves. Abraham refused to mingle the gifts of evil men with the gifts of God. Least they lay claim to it. In the world money answers all (material) things. One man’s treasure is another man’s junk.
The church and body of Christ is perfected by no other than Him who sits at the right hand of God and on the foundation of His Apostles. Preserving the Old and the New Testament in their own rite is as real in us now as when Jesus physically walked the land of Israel. A single life in Him is of no less significant than that of all the other who believes in Him. Forgiven souls becomes of merit with God than the unforgiving who chose to remain in their guilt.
For example the poverty of richness is to favor the poor above the body of Christ. Consider the motives of this story. While Jesus was eating, a woman came in with a beautiful alabaster jar of expensive perfume and poured it over his head. The disciples were indignant when they saw this. “What a waste!” they said. Jesus rebuttal, “Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”
But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
A rich man is wise in his own eyes, but a poor man who has understanding will find him out.
A person’s riches may ransom their life, but the poor cannot respond to threatening rebukes.
The poverty of richness proves that hardly the one who trust in money will enter into the kingdom of God.
