Trusting in Riches

  1. It is unfortunate that many the only way they will come to Christ is to be broken! To lose all. After seeing of this move of the Spirit in 1857 I took notice it began after the so called Panic of 1857
    1. Read about Panic of 1857
    2. Read about modern day lay offs
    3. About warning of a stock market crash and bank runs.
  1. “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”Luke‬ ‭18‬:‭24‬-‭25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬
    1. ‬‬”He who trusts in his riches will fall, But the righteous will flourish like foliage.“Proverbs‬ ‭11‬:‭28‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    2. ”“If I have made gold my hope, Or said to fine gold, ‘You are my confidence’; If I have rejoiced because my wealth was great, And because my hand had gained much; If I have observed the sun when it shines, Or the moon moving in brightness, So that my heart has been secretly enticed, And my mouth has kissed my hand; This also would be an iniquity deserving of judgment, For I would have denied God who is above.“ Job‬ ‭31‬:‭24‬-‭28‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬
  1. Look how God called for a destruction on the gods of the land
    1. Will God have to do it again
    2. ”The Message on Moab from God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel: “Doom to Nebo! Leveled to the ground! Kiriathaim demeaned and defeated, The mighty fortress reduced to a molehill, Moab’s glory—dust and ashes. Conspirators plot Heshbon’s doom: ‘Come, let’s wipe Moab off the map.’ The city of Madmen will be struck mute, as killing follows killing. Listen! A cry out of Horonaim: ‘Disaster—doom and more doom!’ Moab will be shattered. Her cries will be heard clear down in Zoar. Up the ascent of Luhith climbers weep, And down the descent from Horonaim, cries of loss and devastation. Oh, run for your lives! Get out while you can! Survive by your wits in the wild! You trusted in thick walls and big money, yes? But it won’t help you now. Your big god Chemosh will be hauled off, his priests and managers with him. A wrecker will wreck every city. Not a city will survive. The valley fields will be ruined, the plateau pastures destroyed, just as I told you. Cover the land of Moab with salt. Make sure nothing ever grows here again. Her towns will all be ghost towns. Nobody will ever live here again. Sloppy work in God’s name is cursed, and cursed all halfhearted use of the sword.“ Jeremiah‬ ‭48‬:‭1‬-‭10‬ ‭MSG‬‬‬‬‬‬
  1. Our total dependence must be on God and not on our abundance!
    1. Stay in love with Jesus
    2. Proven by our pursuit
      1. Our love for His people
      2. Our giving to the needs of others
      3. Obedience of his law
