PREFACE

The financial woes which plague our society are a direct result of disobedience to God’s Commandments, and specifically greed, lying, corruption, and vanity. The endless obsession with mass consumption, debt and greed is in the process of destroying our civilized society. Do not be fooled, all governments are under the direct control of global elites and world bankers, who see the people as nothing more than slave workers to make them rich. The Word of God in the Bible, clearly tells us that man’s system of financial greed will not last, and will be completely wiped out when our LORD Jesus Christ returns to this world. Dear brothers and sisters, study the Bible, trust in God, and follow His commandments. We can take heart through the coming tribulations and trials, that the judgment day of the liars and thieves draweth nigh.

God bless!
Proverbs 11:4

“Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.”
Proverbs 11:28

“He that trusteth in his riches, shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.”

Proverbs 13:7

“There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.”
Proverbs 22:1

“A good name is rather to be chosen then great riches, and loving favour rather then silver and gold.”

Proverbs 22:7

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”

Proverbs 22:16

“He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.”

Proverbs 22:4

“Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.”

Ecclesiastes 5:12-13

“The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep. There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their lust.”

Mark 4:19

“And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.”

Mark 10:23

“And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!”

Luke 6:24

“But woe unto you that are rich! For ye have received your consolation.”

Luke 8:14

“And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.”

Luke 18:24

“And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!”

1 Timothy 6:17

“Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.”

Job 27:19

“The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.”

Psalm 49:6-7

“They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give God a ransom to him:”

Proverbs 13:11

“Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathered by labour shall increase.”

Proverbs 19:4

“Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.”

Matthew 6:19

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:”
Revelation 3:17

“Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.”

Revelation 18:3

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”
CONCLUSION

Failure to obey God’s laws in all things, finances included, will only lead to misery and destruction. The endless pursuit of riches and wealth is contrary to the word of God, and is nothing short of greed and selfishness. Few people accept that wealth of itself is not wrong, rather, the love of money is considered the root of all evil – 1 Timothy 6:10. True wealth and blessings come from God, and we would do well not to forget this.

God bless

Sincerely,
