It's not your money.

Study Luke 16 :9
We have a GREAT lesson here. We need to focus on the future by making wise decisions. Godly, wisdom, spiritual decisions in the here and now with all of our resources in the same manner that the worldly man stores up his wealth as if he could take it with him into the next life which he never can. Naked enter, naked return. But for us we need to look at life with eyes toward our final home by caring for the poor and the things of God. We CAST OUR BREAD UPON MANY WATERS THAT WE MAY FIND IT AGAIN IN HEAVEN... AS THEY SAY.. YOU CAN'T OUTLIVE GOD... MATTHEW HENRY WRITES: " ALSO GOD gives to a good man, that is good in his sight, that is, to a free-hearted charitable man, wisdom, and knowledge, and joy (Ecclesiastes 2:26).  That is, to a man that is faithful in unrighteous mammon
He gives the true riches. The riches of this world are another man's, not our own. They are ta allotria, not our own, for they are foreign to the soul and It's nature and interest. They are not our own, for they are God's; his title to them is prior and superior to ours; the property remains in him, we are only stewards. They are another man's; we have them from others; we usethem from others, and what good has the owner from his goods that increase, save beholding of them with his eyes, and must shortly leave them to others, and we know not whom?  BUT SPIRITUAL AND ETERNAL RICHES ARE OUR OWN THEY ENTER INTO THE SOUL THAT BECOMES POSSESSED OF THEM.  AND INSEPARABLE. THEY CAN NOT BE TAKEN FROM US.. IF WE MAKE CHRIST OUR OWN, AND THE PROMISES OUR OWN, AND HEAVEN OUR OWN, WE HAVE THAT WHICH WE CAN TRULY CALL OUR OWN.... BUT HOW CAN WE EXPECT GOD TO ENRICH US WITH THESE IF WE DO NOT SERVE HIM WITH OUR WORLDLY POSSESSIONS, OF WHICH WE ARE BUT ONLY STEWARDS... AMEN

  3. Brother Andrew I want to Thank first Our Father in Heaven and His only Begotten Son Our Lord And Savior Jesus Christ The King of kings and The Lord of lords The Alpha and The Omega The Beginning and The End who is Come in the Flesh according to scriptures. Forgive my grammar I am from Philippines but currently living in China with my Chinese husband and a daughter 5yr old. I am new to your blog. I am for TRUTH AND KEEP SEEKING TRUTH. And Truth is Jesus our Savior. Brother I can truly relate I am telling the truth God is my witness how difficult my life here in China many tears and sorrows.. I felt separated and alone physically and spiritually from my family and friends in Philippines. Since Jesus came suddenly one night in a vision or dream I cannot tell in my Life year 2015 here in China my life changed on it's own... I cannot put in words... I became like a fool, crazy to my family and friends and cousins... Because I shared about Jesus and how Satan is real because God opened my eyes and many times devil attacked me in my sleep sometimes literal pain even whispering to my ear literally In Chinese one time cursing me because I told to my husband about Satan and Jesus.. But growing In the Lord... everyday waking up early praying reading Bible KJV now I read because now I know other versions are corrupt. Spending time with Jesus talking to Him while washing dishes, cleaning, washing clothes, even in shower, praising and worshipping Him from my heart made me more and more in deep relationship to Jesus. I am not telling these to boast but to share and to testify how JESUS is REAL and He do change people's Life. How spiritual is Real and Satan is Real and Heaven and Hell is Real. And only Jesus Christ can SAVED US. I struggle... no work, no money of my own, literally no friends, no nothing, no one I can talk about Jesus and have understanding. Since 2015 it's only me and Jesus myLord everyday in ups and downs in tears in joy in sadness in heaviness in feeling of wanting to give up in everything and in my every breath. Only Him and I.. Holy Spirit teach and continues teaching me, convicting me depends on the sin or mistakes or disobey I've done.. He discipline me chastised me and pointing out to me where I am wrong and feel so dirty and shame of myself. Brother I thank you for posting and keep posting the knowledge the learning or whatever our Good Lord put in your heart. It's been years I am searching looking for a true believer/believers I got three sisters but it didn't last.. After a weeks months I felt there is something not right So I left.. I think it's really few who are truly in Christ Jesus and their heart is only for Jesus, no one is righteous and perfect but the heart that truly Love Jesus and not the world are Few. Brother thank you so much.. I am 34. And it feels so good to share and talk to a real Christian it's like a treasure to me... Thank you brother many thank you from my heart. Jesus bless you and keep you and your family.. I have a lot of things I want to say but for sure you know it all already because we have One Lord One God One Holy Spirit One Savior One Teaching One Testimony One struggles....etc.. 1Corinthians 15:1-4 Jesus Christ is Risen and Alive Forever more. Our Blessed Hope. I am waiting still... To His Coming in the Clouds.. Lord Jesus Please come now. But above all YOUR WILL BE DONE. Amen. Sister Marenie.

    1. Dear Sister Marenie, Thank you from the depths of my heart for your powerful comment and testimony. Your precious words that can only come from a child of God going through the furnace of affliction are a great inspiration to all the Saints and I shall share. More importantly as God does keep memorials for eternity your words and testimony will stand eternal as a great testimony and witness before our Lord and you shall hear this at the BEMA SEAT. Our Heavenly Father knows your affliction and your faith is built strong on the solid foundation of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior AMEN! Here is a great study on memorials. And other important studies that I've had in my journey of also going through the furnace of trials and affliction.

      I will keep you in prayer sister. I look forward to meeting you when we're caught up to our Lord Jesus Christ here soon. Be strong in the Lord dear Sister. I pray Colossians 1:9-20 and 2 Timothy 4:18 over you now. God bless you and yours abundantly.

      Amen! Maranatha!

      Colossians 1: 9-20

      For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

      10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

      11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

      12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

      13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

      14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

      15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

      16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

      17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

      18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

      19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

      20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

      2 Timothy 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
