False Prophets and Satan

Print by Gustave Doré illustrating the parable...

Jesus said; The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly. (John 10:10)

Anyone no matter if he is calling down fire from heaven as Jesus said the false prophets will do if he is using offerings to make himself rich so he can live like a king or queen is a false prophet.

I heard Paul Crouch ( I do like the man) say that why should he not be rich. After all he reasoned the Patriarch Abraham was.

The Patriarch Abraham was also a literal physical ancestor of Jesus Christ. Comparing oneself to the patriarch Abraham is absurd.  If one has this attitude he is bragging not humbling himself. Christians being rich has nothing to do with being a Christian. Sinners are rich. This is not proof of God’s favor.

How many times do we have to read the story of the rich man and Lazarus to know that God does not appreciate how rich people live? The rich man went to hell. Not for being rich but for the way he treated Lazarus. There are some Lazarus people out there. And there are some Lazarus nations out there. How one treats them determines God’s response..

So anyone who is rich and does not help the poor and sick and outcasts is going to hell. It cannot be any clearer than it is.

There are right now those who take in millions of dollars from offerings and use that money to live like kings and queens. Is this right? It is not biblically possible to be a Christian and live rich while your neighbor is suffering.

Can one be jealous of these people? No because no one who follows Jesus is jealous of what the devil does. It is Satan who is doing all this not God.
