Deceitfulness of Riches


Jesus, the word of God, said, " the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly." Are you being robbed of an abundant life?

Man’s way makes you think you have a great abundance, but what you really have is bondage (slavery and employment) that creates stress, disease, pollution, global warming, energy crisis, wars, immigration.-------

You leave your home to pay for those things it requires, electricity, water and sewage fees, rent or mortgage payments, upkeep, insurance and security costs. . Your automobile is your means to drive you to your slavery. It keeps you enslaved to car-payments, insurance, gasoline, maintainance, repair, and employment. You only have the responsibility of your possessions, without time to enjoy them. That is the deceitfulness of riches.

Your children are raised by strangers because you are at your slavery for pride or money,and they are not learning how to be good sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, grandchildren and neighbors. Neither are they learning how to prepare for their future families. You are working with strangers who usually don’t even live by you. You lose the love of family and neighbors. You only have the responsibility of your children without time to enjoy them. That is the deceitfulness of riches.Isaiah 2:6

Your wife is not home to love and guide your family and neighbors. She is out getting schooling for a job to stay away from home. She lives with plans to be independent should you divorce, be unable to work from sickness or accident, or in case you die. She loses the power to keep her family together. She loses the dignity and power of being a wife, mother and community member. All her power and dignity is put in her job title, her pay-check, or the fashions and possessions she buys to appear successful. She is enslaved to the same things you are enslaved to.

Neither you nor your wife can take pride in the accomplishments of your children because you have given them to be raised without you, with strangers who could never love them the way you could, for they will always be yours.
Vanity (dictionary): pride, conceit, arrogance; emptiness, uselessness, worthlessness, ineffectiveness, pointlessness

What you eat must be paid for, is polluted by processing or unnatural feeding and chemicals given to animals. With the stress, lack of good foods, exercise and sunshine, without loving companionship and relationships, you get sickness and diseases of long duration. You lose your health. This also is the deceiptfulness of riches.

No one is home to take care of the very young or the old… again strangers must do it and be paid to do it. You reject having children because the expense is too great considering education, health care, fashion, and inventions etc. so you lose your future care givers. Your community is full of separate lives going separate ways. Love, compassion, and helpfulness have no time to be expressed in your life. You have sought the riches of man's world and have become enslaved by it. This is the deceitfulness of riches.

You are not alone, the whole country is polluted by this covetous life that God hates; that's why you couldn't see we were going the wrong way. We are so blinded that we encourage other nations to be like us, polluting and destroying us all. Scripture says, "While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage." 2Peter 2:19
"Liberty" (dictionary): independence, freedom, autonomy, liberation, emancipation; authority.
"Covetous" (dictionary): desirous, greedy, envious, jealous

Sports and music are not for money and vanity, something you must be in slavery-employment to enjoy and afford, but for enjoyment of friends and family, and to be a joy and thanksgiving to God. It is to give you a happy heart continually that God wants these things for you, not just fun for a short time.

Don’t miss out on the Abundant Life. Speak Up. Turn to life and create a garden paradise here and now. Select a president to lead our nation into God's abundant life, one who knows the importance of conforming to God’s way, not experimenting with their own free thinking and keeping us in the same lifestyle. We need a real change.

Deeper nderstandings for the abundant life: Psalm 113:9, Psalm 119:33-43, Matthew 6:33, John 10:10, Psalm 119:165, Jeremiah 18:6-10,
Psalm 107:41

We Are Going The Wrong Way
If We Want The Garden Paradise, We Must Create It.
