TO THEM GOD WILLED TO MAKE
WHAT ARE THE RICHES OF THE GLORY OF THIS MYSTERY AMONG THE GENTILES, WHICH
CHRIST IN YOU
THE HOPE OF GLORY
GOD WANTS YOU TO KNOW TODAY!!
There are riches and there are riches to be had in life, some fade, some shine and some
are just plain heavenly.
For a church, ministry or minister to promote the riches of this world and say
with the same tongue, store your treasure in heaven is hypocrisy at it's best.
God wills to make all of His children understand that He has given them much more
than the powers of the air and the sons of disobedience want them to know. Once we come to
realize or get a revelation of the riches that Christ has given and is offering through
His engrafted word, we shall never hunger or thirst again for those things that the
gentiles seek, in order to be content.
Actually, it was
to this end
that Paul labored
Paul never labored in vain, his aim was always heavenward. Paul wasn't one that only knew
the price of things but he had the God given wisdom to recognize the value..
Do we yet understand that Christ in you is greater than money in the bank or
glory in this world or acceptance in society or popularity among people?
God wills to make it known to Christians but do we want to know this blessed reality or
are we like Mrs. Lot who deep within her heart of hearts loved the world more than she
LET US PREACH, WARN AND TEACH ALL PEOPLE TO STAY WELL AWAY FROM THE WIDE ROAD OF
WORLDLINESS. COLOSSIANS 1:28.
There are many ministers and church leaders today who resemble Mrs. Lot
their hand in the Masters hand yet they look back over His shoulder to the wealth and pomp
and dainties of this wicked world we live in
This is why their hearts are hard toward the Holy Ghost and are unable to see how far away
from Christ's true Gospel they have strayed, they relish in and cherish men's and women's
meets and fellowship rather than God's and sit and boast and brag of what they shall do
next year and say
God is with us
no harm shall come to us!
If Jesus Christ isn't your boast, brag, treasure, goal and glory
your in big trouble.
AND TRULY IF THEY HAD CALLED TO MIND THAT COUNTRY
FROM WHICH THEY HAD COME
THEY WOULD HAVE HAD OPPORTUNITY TO RETURN
BUT NOW THEY DESIRE A BETTER, THAT IS A HEAVENLY COUNTRY
THEREFORE GOD IS NOT
ASHAMED, TO BE CALLED THEIR GOD FOR HE HAS PREPARED A CITY FOR THEM
There is a certain amount of joy, peace, comfort excitement and security that
comes from winning the lotto, earning big money, fame and possessions but it is temporary
and illusive. The riches in Christ we have all the time, at any time and they supersede
all the riches in the earth, this is why Paul said, God wants you to know about this
taste and see that the Lord is good, like honey in the rock!
