The popular “Jesus” pastors are preaching on pulpits today is not the same Jesus, the Son of God who lived among men over 2000yrs ago. They’re preaching a Jesus that died just for you to make money, buy a car, build a house, and live in luxury. If Jesus died for the corruptible things of this world, then he died in vain.
Listen, you don’t need to believe in Jesus to live in luxury. The rich man who went to hell and the rich young ruler who walked out on Jesus were some of the biblical examples of this truth. Today, the richest men in the world are largely not Christians. Most of them are either from other religions or atheists. A good number of them who even claim to be Christians are occult men. So you see? Material wealth can never be the reason Jesus went through all that pain.
The true “Jesus” we read about in the Bible came to give us eternal life, not luxury life. Eternal life is God kind of life. A life that enables us to exist as offsprings of God, who have his divine nature. This divine nature of God in us is the basis of our relationship with him. We can now commune with God and enjoy glorious intimacy with the Most High. The riches of this glorious life is actually unsearchable and unfathomable. This is why a child of God can still be worshipping God while going through martyrdom. Sickness, pains or lack can’t take away this glorious experience. The kingdom of God comprises of the attributes of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. These can’t be bought with money.
Am I saying children of God can’t be prosperous in finances? Far be it from me. We’re actually those who prosper financially after our souls have become prosperous (3John2). If God hasn’t tried you with lack, you’ll likely not value financial prosperity when it comes. In life, there are times to abound and abase. All are planned by God to train us with the necessary experiences we need to remain faithful to him even when riches increase or when there’s lack. God is bound to lose many of his children to the world if we’re not properly trained to depend on him more even when we have so much money and ideas to the point of being tempted to make decisions without him.
The Jesus of the Bible trains his disciples with hardship. Yes, you heard me well, I said hardship! That’s why the Bible says we should endure hardness as good soldiers of Jesus Christ (2Tim2v3). The “Jesus” pastors are preaching in denominations today starts spoiling new converts with promises of money, cars, houses, jobs, marriages, babies, etc. Same things heathens achieve without stress, prosperity preachers call miracles. Christians who work hard have a level playing field with with everyone else so long as financial prosperity is concerned. You don’t become rich in money simply because you’re a Christian.
Truth has come to dethrone lies in the wake of the end time revival. Glory to God!
