Money cash

Words like power, money and control are often bandied about quite casually. If we study the nature of man, we will come to an understanding of how these terms impact every aspect of human life. Man is a consumer; he will always require something as he goes about daily life. He has to find a way to accomplish his desires, and fulfill his needs. The basic need for clothing, food and shelter, compels certain decision making processes. Ultimately we need money, if we are to have even the basics things in life. Money can be a force for good or evil, its dual nature has influenced many people in various ways. One of the lessons the Bible teaches is that “as it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one” Romans 3:10. Without the spirit of God in dwelling us it is impossible to live a life that is humanistic and selfless. So the opposite of that, is to try and influence or exert control over others to get our way.

Power is the ultimate tool in the hands of man; there are two powers at work in the earth realm. One is satanic, in the form of the powers of darkness. The other is a force for good, God’s way, the truth and light. Unfortunately, Adam’s and Eve decision in the Garden of Eden placed every human being into the hands of Satan. The only way we can be free of Satan is to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Power can be abused, evil men and women have come up with ways to exert control over others. Satan is the mastermind behind every wicked technology, what he has done is to teach his agents how to rig the world system that is under his directives. The world system of trade and economy represents the Babylonian system of old. It’s the system that gave rise to most of the models we follow today in business etc. Babylon is about greed, control, selfishness, hoarding and amassing to gain leverage and power over others. I’m not attacking the wealthy, all I’m doing is teaching about the systems of the world. God will give me and every other believer what is his to give.God’s system is vastly different from the world system.

Ultimately everything in heaven and earth belongs to God. In the early church, the people came together, as a community of and divided up their wealth so everyone could benefit .The Bible states in Psalm 24:1  The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.. I have taught that the Bible is prophetic; God has divine timing for everything. Nothing surprises him, he has allowed things to come about to serve his own purposes. Every system that has ever been introduced to the world has faltered at some point and died, we can go back through history and study, the rise and fall of many empires and dynasties great examples are the Greek and Roman empires. The world economy is in shambles, people are crying out under the load of debt and poverty, it’s everywhere, and even believers are affected. I spoke to an individual yesterday; he said to me “it’s time the government did something about this.” I said to him, if they could they would. The Bible has said many things concerning money, the book of Ecclesiastes states that “A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things”. From this scripture, the distinction is made, that money, is quite important.
