God DOES NOT like poverty.
I am convinced. FULLY PERSUADED.
This doesn’t mean he doesn’t like the poor, in fact HE LOVES THEM. But I KNOW HE DOESN’T LIKE POVERTY.
POVERTY IS INCONSISTENT WITH HIS NATURE. The Word of God proves it.
Proverbs 10:15 (NKJV) 15 The rich man's wealth is his strong city; The destruction of the poor is their poverty.
There are poor people in the world and as Christians we have a responsibility to help the poor. God encourages it and he holds us accountable to helping the poor.
But His greatest desire is to see the poor ELEVATED to a position of wealth so they can help others. God’s Word is replete with His thinking on the attitude we should have towards the poor.
The purpose of wealth is to further the gospel of Jesus Christ and SOLVE PROBLEMS.
There is an enemy who doesn’t want you to be to become........WAIT! There is a deeper truth to this.
There is an enemy who doesn’t want CHRISTIANS to have wealth. He doesn’t care if others have it. He would love for the wicked, the greedy or the selfish to have wealth. He will even work to make sure it gets in their hands, BUT THE CHRISTIAN......now that would harm his kingdom.
REJOICE because the owner of the Universe is your Father and it His good pleasure to give you the world!!!!
Luke 12:32 (NKJV) 32 "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
