Poverty Is Forbidden For Genuine Christian People

Listen to this article

All things should educate us and even correct us to be better Christians 2 Timothy 3:16 but still some Christians argue that their Jesus was poor so they want to follow his example, which is not true because Jesus wasn’t poor since he had a treasurer. So Jesus was against poverty. Others argue that they want to be like poor Lazarus who died and went to heaven (Luke 16:20-22). Remember poverty is a curse and God won’t use poverty to bring us closer to him. Poverty is the devils tool like in Job’s case (Job 2:3-7).

If our earthly fathers give us the best then how much is our heavenly father (Matthew 7:11). So poverty is not one of these gifts. Poverty is not among the blessings mentioned in Deuteronomy 28. Remember that is why God made us to have dominion over all things in Eden. Genesis 1:26. You need dominion because Hard work alone can’t make you rich. Deuteronomy 8:18

All mighty men in the bible were rich: Job in Job 1:1-3; Abram Genesis 13:2; Isaac Genesis 26:12-13; Jacob Genesis 30:42-43; Solomon 1 Kings 10:23

Even when Adam sinned, and left Eden God promised to the take Israelites to the land of Canaan. Along the way God provided: Manna for the Israelites Exodus 16:4; even shoes and clothes never wore out. Nehemiah 9:21, Deuteronomy 29:5 God had promised to take them out of poverty, finally to Canaan land a land flowing with milk and honey Exodus 3:17

What is common in all this situation is that these men and women did few things to overcome poverty:

They Feared God– They had faith in God leading them to have Faith of God in order to do the impossible

They worked hard and never gave up easily- Jacob dug wells again and again Genesis 26:18-26

They gave to God- Jacob 10%

Job gave to the poor Job 29:12

Now what went wrong?

The Devil appears by offering his system after worshipping him. He tells you to ignore God because you are God which was the lie he told eve. The devil often stated that if you need guidance call to Devil and worship him according to Matthew 4:8-10. The Devil says follow me and i will give you this or that.

Similar to Genesis 42:1-4, there is a way Satan takes men to Egypt (Modern Egypt-could be anywhere) where he keeps corn (livelihood). It doesn’t matter who you are (prophets, etc. included- 2 Kings 4:1 ). All most go there to eat corn by becoming slaves.

Without money you will die so the devil ensures there is shortage of it, so you will want to go to his Egypt. Remember in Genesis 42, Jacob was hungry and was willing to send his sons to Egypt.

Corn (money) has relocated many people from God’s will to the devils will. It has made many do the what have you done yourself in search of corn???How far have you gone in search of it.

According to Psalms 112:3 Wealth and riches are in their houses… e.g. When it was time to do a was either in the Exodus 4:2 What is that in your hand? Or in your house 2 Kings 4:2.

Whatever God told you in his word is true, it can’t change for anyone. Matthew 24:35

So, there is a place for quoting scripture but when the bible say give it means give nothing more nothing less Matthew 6:3.

While God says follow, I take you out of Egypt to a land flowing with milk and honey

What you don’t know is the land is ruled by pharaoh with hard heart Exodus 7:3

You work like elephant and eat like ant

You can’t take out anything from it according to pharaoh. YOU HAVE worked all your life with nothing to show Exodus 10:24-28

But how you wont get rich because devil doesn’t ask for 10% but all 100%. remember devil is thief. He seems like he is helping you but he is stealing from you

Story Of How Poverty Can Attack You

Just imagine a person who sees you are carrying a heavy bag of Gold and he offers to help carry your bag and his his is full of stones which along the way he switches with your gold and by the time realize he is long thought he was helping but he was robbing you.

Get rich schemes gambling, pyramid schemes 3M, pip coin etc. and other shortcuts full of giants.

Soul selling by musicians, worship me and I give you all this wealth. There is nothing for free in his kingdom everything you get you pay a price.

That is what happened to Eve and only Jesus died to redeem us.

Evils spirit to do business, remember the Girl who brought a lot of money to her owners. Acts 16:16

When you follow God you are paid what Joel 2.25 was stolen  from you over the years. The Egyptians gave them silver, gold and clothing Exodus 12:35-36

Yes, God system might be long but it for your own Good. 13 days but full of giants is not God’s scheme, remember short cuts are dangerous Exodus 13:17
