God Wants You 

To Become 

A Christian Warrior.

(2 Tim 2:1

A Christian Warrior Seeks 

Heavenly Treasure.  

 

(Rev 3:18 NKJV) "I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

(Rev 3:19 NKJV) "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

(Rev 3:20 NKJV) "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

(Rev 3:21 NKJV) "To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

(Rev 3:22 NKJV) "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."' "

 

The Word Of God

 Teaches

Very Clearly 

How To Receive

Heavenly Treasure.

 

The Question is, Are you Willing To Open Your heart To Receive The Truth?

 

The Simple New Testament Truth About Being

  A Christian Warrior is; 

 

We Are Here To Serve God And Others

Not Self.

We Serve God, By Building, 

As He Directs, His kingdom.

We Serve Others by  Showing God's Love   Through Meeting 

Their Daily Needs; 

Physical 

Emotional 

Financial 

          &

Spiritual 

 

 Only By Truly Understanding Who And What 

 Jesus Really Is Can An Individual Even Come 

 Close To Comprehending What Is Taking 

 Place In the Following Scriptures.

 Peter Had Some Idea Because Of The Commit  He Made, 

  Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!".

(John 13:3 NKJV) Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God,
(John 13:4 NKJV) rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself.
(John 13:5 NKJV) After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
(John 13:6 NKJV) Then He came to Simon Peter. And Peter said to Him, "Lord, are You washing my feet?"
(John 13:7 NKJV) Jesus answered and said to him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this."
(John 13:8 NKJV) Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me."

Jesus shows us a simple truth and gives us a simple example to follow.

Here we have God Washing the feet of His Creation. 

His Example Makes It Very Very Clear .

We a here to serve and not to be served in any 

way, 

form or 

fashion.

The focus in life that God expects from us is made very clear. 

This focus comes from a not my will be done, but Your Will oh God

(For A Study On the will or soul of man chick the chapter 20 button,    

(Col 3:1 NKJV) If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

(Col 3:2 NKJV) Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

(Col 3:3 NKJV)
For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

 

 Christian Life Style 

 Is Covered So Clearly In The Word. 

 Under The Blood Of Jesus 

The Simple Truth Is Made Very 

 Red  &  White 

 For All That Want To See The Truth. 

 But,

(1 John 1:6 NKJV) If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

(1 John 1:7 NKJV) But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

  The New Testament Is Presented Very Simply By The Washing Of the Water By The Word  

(Eph 5:25 NKJV) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,

(Eph 5:26 NKJV) that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,

(Eph 5:27 NKJV) that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

(1 Tim 6:3 NKJV) If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness,
(1 Tim 6:4 NKJV) he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions,
(1 Tim 6:5 NKJV) 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 Tim 6:6 NKJV) Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
(1 Tim 6:7 NKJV) For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

(1 Tim 6:8 NKJV) And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.
(1 Tim 6:9 NKJV) But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.

God makes it very clear about the hearts of men in the last days.

(2 Tim 3:2 NKJV) For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

(2 Tim 3:3 NKJV) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,

(2 Tim 3:4 NKJV) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

(2 Tim 3:5 NKJV) having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!


 (1 Tim 6:10 NKJV) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the 
   faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 
(1 Tim 6:11 NKJV) But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.
(1 Tim 6:12 NKJV) Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

During my training in Bible College and in the years to come as I followed those that I chose to be my teachers,  I heard them say,  the love of money is the root of all evil, not money itís self.  But as I watched them each live a stuff filled life and turn their backs to the needs of even those that worked directly for them or under them, my heart started screaming,  something is not right with this picture. It only takes a simple open mind and the New Testament to see the pitfall that these bless me Lord church leaders have fallen into. To walk in the Spirit, as to walking the Flesh is pointed out very clearly in the Word. The truth is,  God does want us to have the Material blessings that He has so freely given us.  The problem is what has been demonstrated to us by the bless me Lord leaders.  They live a life style of much stuff and we have been taught to do the same with our  blessings.

 

What the Word teaches to do with our Blessings, 

we have  not been taught to do. 

Yes they walk in circles around the truth,

 to make it seem spiritual enough. 

To have all their stuff,

 they need you to keep giving  to their cause,  

self  exaltation.

 Many times in the teaching on this web site I have quoted the following scriptures.  These scriptures establish the foundation for Christian Life Style as taught by Jesus as He walked the earth. 

 Before we look at these scriptures, a very important truth needs to be pointed out. 

(2 Cor 13:1 NKJV) This will be the third time I am coming to you. "By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established."
Nothing is repeated in the Word by Accident. To know God is to know a God of extreme detail.  The Bible is no exception. Not one  letter is repeated by accident.  When it comes to repetition of scriptural truth and patterns of thought, each has a profound reason as to why they are repeated. Please do not let the importance of Biblical repetition pass you by. When God takes the time to say it  two or more times,  He is challenging our willingness to serve Him. 

The stuff life style that is preached by the bless me some more oh god with more stuff, is only found between the make believe cracks in the word.

 

The life style that Jesus taught is layed out very clear.

 

Christian Life Style.

These scriptures  establish the  Simple Truths About Christian Life Style.

 

1) We are not here on this earth for ourselves. 

To say, this simple truth has been over looked in the teaching of the new testament church in the U.S., is the greatest understatement that has ever been made sense the beginning of time.  

The following scriptural truth is repeated three times.  

1.      (Mat 16:24 NKJV) Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
(Mat 16:25 NKJV) "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
(Mat 16:26 NKJV) "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
(Mat 16:27 NKJV) "For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

2.      (Mark 8:34 NKJV) When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
(Mark 8:35 NKJV) "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.
(Mark 8:36 NKJV) "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
(Mark 8:37 NKJV) "Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

3)3.       (Luke 9:23 NKJV) Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
(Luke 9:24 NKJV) "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.
(Luke 9:25 NKJV) "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?

     If Hollywood has any place  at all in God's plan it is to teach us the meaning of denying   ourselves as Christ did as He walked this earth.  This is made very clear in the movie called 

"The Passion Of The Christ"  

 

http://www.thepassionofthechrist.com/splash.htm

 

This is the example of self sacrifice that God sets before us.


2) We are here to serve God and Others, not self.  

The following scriptural truth is repeated four times.

 

(Mat 19:21 NKJV) Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."

(Mark 10:21 NKJV) Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me."

(Luke 18:22 NKJV) So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."

The proceeding scriptures were very possibly teaching about what Jesus said to one individual. The following scriptures show what He taught to many.

         (Luke 12:32 NKJV) "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
(Luke 12:33 NKJV) "Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys.
(Luke 12:34 NKJV) "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

God wants us to;

           Deny ourselves

           Follow The Life Style taught by Jesus 

           Lay Up For Ourselves Treasure In Heaven

          

We are not here to build an earthly kingdom for ourselves.  

We are here to build the 

 

Kingdom of God 

 

After the Holy Spirit was given to the church as recorded in acts, the task of establishing the church on this earth was given to the disciples that walked with  Jesus during His ministry here on earth.  They laid the ground work for the church to follow as they were taught  by Jesus Himself.  They watch Him live it and teach it everyday as they spent time with Him while He was here. The Body of Christ the Church is here as one unit, with the care and concern for it's self as one unit,  not a bunch of individual units self serving their individual selves. The Body of Christ The Church,   all fits together so beautifully as taught in the Word. 

 

Only; 

           The Lust of the Eyes  

           The Lust of the Flesh 

           The Pride of Life        

           The Force of Greed    

Could have distorted the Simple Truth of the Word so profoundly.

 

 

The following scriptures represent the life style the disciples learned as they walked this earth with Jesus.

Before we look at the following scriptures I want point out something I think is very interesting about how the following scriptures are view by those that that taught me.   I was told that these scriptures in the book of Acts are meant for the church back in their time because of what God was doing in and through them to spread the gospel and build the Body of Christ. These scriptures are not meant for today.  Now the same group of teacher use the same book of Acts to qualify their belief in their personal use of tongues and the use of tongues in the church today.  I am not trying to agree or disagree with the use of tongues, that is not what I am called to teach.  I use this example to point out that a natural man can and will use the Word of God to have, get and be what ever makes him feel good about himself.  A natural man is self serving.

 

 We are here to serve God and Others.  The following scriptural truth is repeated three times.

 

(Acts 2:43 NKJV) Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
(Acts 2:44 NKJV) Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,
(Acts 2:45 NKJV)
and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.

(Acts 2:46 NKJV) So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,
(Acts 2:47 NKJV) praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

 

(Acts 4:31 NKJV) And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
(Acts 4:32 NKJV) Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common.
(Acts 4:33 NKJV) And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.
(Acts 4:34 NKJV)
Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold,
(Acts 4:35 NKJV)
and laid them at the apostles' feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.

 

(2 Cor 8:12 NKJV) For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.
(2 Cor 8:13 NKJV) For I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened;
(2 Cor 8:14 NKJV) but by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may supply their lack, that their abundance also may supply your lack; that there may be equality.

(2 Cor 8:15 NKJV) As it is written, "He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack."


You will not find anywhere in the new testament where we,

 

 the Body Of Christ, are taught to pay tithes.

 

In the following scripture we are shown what will happen in an individuals life when that individual sets at the feet of Jesus

In this passage we are not told how long Jesus was in this home or a single word that Jesus said  while He was there.  We are only shown the result of His teaching.  If you look at other passages where we are told the words that Jesus spoke,  I think that it is easy to see He is true to form while teaching in Zacchaeus' home.

 

(Luke 19:1-10 NKJV) "Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. (2) Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. (3) And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.(4) So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way.(5) And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, "Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house." (6) So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. (7) But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, "He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner."(8) Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold."(9) And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; (10) "for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." 

 

Zacchaeus starts with  a 100% of all that he owns at the time of Jesus' arrive. After entering Zacchacus' home, at some point Jesus started teaching I am sure, that is what Jesus did, teach.  How long He was there and what He taught we are not told. But it is not hard to read between the lines here by looking at  the following statement  made by Zacchaeus. "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor." Lets assume that means half of all that he had.  So now Zacchaeus is at 50% of what he owned only a short time ago.  Then Zacchaeus makes the statement, "and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold." I am not sure how much this could possibly be,  but very possibly could be half of the 50%.  No Matter what the actual end results was, what Jesus  taught while in  Zacchaeus' home changed his prospective of what  he thought was  important in life and what he chose to do with his  Material possessions. Compare this with the rich young ruler and what we have is the same teaching with two difference results. 

 

The first of all commandments make it very clear 

as to what God expects from us.

 (Mark 12:29 NKJV) Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one.
(Mark 12:30 NKJV) 'And you shall love the LORD your God with
all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment.

(Mark 12:31 NKJV) "And the second, like it, is this:
'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."

To Love God is to share Godís plan of salvation with others and to work to supply the needs of other (AS YOURSELF) as diligently as you work to supply your own needs. How much more black and White Can God Make it.


Jesus makes it very clear to the results that will be seen in the life of any individual that has a true encounter with the Living Word of God, Jesus. What is missing from the teaching below?

 

 10% is missing.

 

We are here to serve God and Others.  The following scriptural truth is repeated four times.

(Mat 13:8 NKJV) "But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
(Mat 13:9 NKJV) "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"


(Mat 13:23 NKJV) "But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."

(Mark 4:8 NKJV) "But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."
(Mark 4:9 NKJV) And He said to them, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"

(Mark 4:20 NKJV) "But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."
(Mark 4:21 NKJV) Also He said to them, "Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand?
(Mark 4:22 NKJV) "For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.
(Mark 4:23 NKJV) "If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."

Talents for Talents

100% return in the following example 

was not sufficient.

 It Took  200% - 500% return to please the Lord.

 

(Mat 25:14 NKJV) "For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them.

(Mat 25:15 NKJV) "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.

(Mat 25:16 NKJV) "Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents.
(Mat 25:17 NKJV) "And likewise he who had received two gained two more also.
(Mat 25:18 NKJV) "But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord's money.
(Mat 25:19 NKJV) "After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
(Mat 25:20 NKJV) "So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, 'Lord,
you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.'
(Mat 25:21 NKJV) "His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'
(Mat 25:22 NKJV) "He also who had received two talents came and said,
'Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.'
(Mat 25:23 NKJV) "His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'
(Mat 25:24 NKJV) "Then he who had received the one talent came and said, 'Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.
(Mat 25:25 NKJV) 'And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.'
(Mat 25:26 NKJV) "But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.
(Mat 25:27 NKJV) 'So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.
(Mat 25:28 NKJV) 'Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.
(Mat 25:29 NKJV)
'For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.
(Mat 25:30 NKJV) 'And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

Do you think Jesus is talking about having worldly stuff or Heavenly Treasure. 

 

 The reward of giving all. 
(Mark 12:41 NKJV) Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much.
(Mark 12:42 NKJV) Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans.
(Mark 12:43 NKJV) So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury;
(Mark 12:44 NKJV) "for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her who
le livelihood."

(Luke 21:1 NKJV) And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury,
(Luke 21:2 NKJV) and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites.
(Luke 21:3 NKJV) So He said, "Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all;
(Luke 21:4 NKJV) "for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had."

The Great Manipulation 

 

Taught From The Pulpits In The U.S. 

 

The Promises Of Great Wealth

 

 

This next section is so profound as to the warning that is repeated multiple times concerning the theme that is presented in the following scriptures. 

The question that is needed to be asked is why do so many church leaders personally teach and live a life style that is so contradictory to what you are about to read. 

 

(Mat 13:22 NKJV) "Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

(Mat 19:23 NKJV) 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.
(Mat 19:24 NKJV) "And again I say to you, 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."

(Mark 4:19 NKJV) "and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

(Mark 10:23 NKJV) Then Jesus looked around and said to His disciples, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!"
(Mark 10:24 NKJV) And the disciples were astonished at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, "Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God!
(Mark 10:25 NKJV) "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 1:52 NKJV) He has put down the mighty from their thrones, And exalted the lowly.
(Luke 1:53 NKJV) He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty.
(Luke 6:24 NKJV) "But woe to you who are rich, For you have received your consolation.
(Luke 6:25 NKJV) Woe to you who are full, For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, For you shall mourn and weep.
(Luke 6:26 NKJV) Woe to you when all men speak well of you, For so did their fathers to the false prophets.

(Luke 8:14 NKJV) "Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to Maturity.

(Luke 12:16 NKJV) Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: "The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully.
(Luke 12:17 NKJV) "And he thought within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?'
(Luke 12:18 NKJV) "So he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods.
(Luke 12:19 NKJV) 'And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry."'
(Luke 12:20 NKJV) "But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?'
(Luke 12:21 NKJV) "So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."

(Luke 14:12 NKJV) Then He also said to him who invited Him, "When you give a dinner or a supper, do not ask your friends, your brothers, your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also invite you back, and you be repaid.
(Luke 14:13 NKJV) "But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind.
(Luke 14:14 NKJV) "And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just."

(Luke 16:11 NKJV) "Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? - ??????

(Luke 16:12 NKJV) "And if you have not been faithful in what is another man's, who will give you what is your own?
(Luke 16:13 NKJV) "No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."

(Luke 16:19 NKJV) "There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day.
(Luke 16:20 NKJV) "But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate,
(Luke 16:21 NKJV) "desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
(Luke 16:22 NKJV) "So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried.
(Luke 16:23 NKJV) "And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
(Luke 16:24 NKJV) "Then he cried and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.'
(Luke 16:25 NKJV) "But Abraham said, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented.

(Luke 18:23 NKJV) But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich.
(Luke 18:24 NKJV) And when Jesus saw that he became very sorrowful, He said, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!
(Luke 18:25 NKJV) "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."

(1 Tim 6:7 NKJV) For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
(1 Tim 6:8 NKJV) And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.
(1 Tim 6:9 NKJV) But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.
(1 Tim 6:10 NKJV) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

(1 Tim 6:17 NKJV) Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
(1 Tim 6:18 NKJV) Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
(1 Tim 6:19 NKJV) storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

(James 1:9 NKJV) Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation,
(James 1:10 NKJV) but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away.
(James 1:11 NKJV) For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits.

(James 2:5 NKJV) Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?
(James 2:6 NKJV) But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts?
(James 2:7 NKJV) Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called?

(James 5:1 NKJV) Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you!
(James 5:2 NKJV) Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.
(James 5:3 NKJV) Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.
(James 5:4 NKJV) Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.
(James 5:5 NKJV) You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter.

(James 5:6 NKJV) You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.

(Rev 3:14 NKJV) "And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, 'These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:
(Rev 3:15 NKJV) "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
(Rev 3:16 NKJV) "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
(Rev 3:17 NKJV) "Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'; and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked;

God's Final Judgment 

On The Lust For 

Wealth In This World


(Rev 18:1 NKJV) After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory.
(Rev 18:2 NKJV) And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!
(Rev 18:3 NKJV) "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury."
(Rev 18:4 NKJV) And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
(Rev 18:5 NKJV) "For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
(Rev 18:6 NKJV) "Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.
(Rev 18:7 NKJV) "In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.'
(Rev 18:8 NKJV) "Therefore her plagues will come in one day; death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.
(Rev 18:9 NKJV) "The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning,
(Rev 18:10 NKJV) "standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.'
(Rev 18:11 NKJV) "And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore:
(Rev 18:12 NKJV) "merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble;
(Rev 18:13 NKJV) "and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
(Rev 18:14 NKJV) "The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.
(Rev 18:15 NKJV) "The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
(Rev 18:16 NKJV) "and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls!
(Rev 18:17 NKJV) 'For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.' Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance
(Rev 18:18 NKJV) "and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, 'What is like this great city?'
(Rev 18:19 NKJV) "They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.'

God is Making 

The Final Great

 Plea.

 

The Plea To Respond As Zacchaeus Responded.

The Plea To Not Be Luke Warm.

The Plea To Flee Babylon The Great.

The Plea To Be An Example To Your Brothers Now While Still On Earth.


(1 Tim 6:17 NKJV) Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
(1 Tim 6:18 NKJV) Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
(1 Tim 6:19 NKJV) storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

 

(James 4:13 NKJV) Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit";
(James 4:14 NKJV) whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
(James 4:15 NKJV) Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that."
(James 4:16 NKJV) But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.
(James 4:17 NKJV) Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
(James 5:1 NKJV) Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you!
(James 5:2 NKJV) Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.
(James 5:3 NKJV) Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.
(James 5:4 NKJV) Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.
(James 5:5 NKJV) You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter.



(Rom 11:11 NKJV) I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles.
(Rom 11:12 NKJV) Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!
(Rom 11:13 NKJV) For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,
(Rom 11:14 NKJV) if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.
(Rom 11:15 NKJV) For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
(Rom 11:16 NKJV) For if the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.
(Rom 11:17 NKJV) And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree,
(Rom 11:18 NKJV) do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
(Rom 11:19 NKJV) You will say then, "Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in."
(Rom 11:20 NKJV) Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear.
(Rom 11:21 NKJV) For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.
(Rom 11:22 NKJV) Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.
