Money is not a problem in the Kingdom, and having money is not a problem in the Kingdom.
However listening to some people you would think money or having money is evil.
Money itself, like most things, is a neutral substance or neutral entity; it does nothing itself.
It only becomes active when it is used, and this is where the problem comes in.
I have heard people quote to me saying, “money is the root of all evil”.
That is Biblically inaccurate as it is the love of money that is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6 v 10).
Being in the Kingdom and loving the Lord, and having money at the same time is not a problem; loving the Lord and loving money however is an issue.
We cannot serve two masters Jesus said, we cannot serve God and serve money (Luke 16 v 13).
Jesus came that we might live in abundance (John 10 v 10 and 3 John 2) and He became poor so that we might be rich (2 Corinthians 8 v 9).
As believers we are meant to have more than enough money to live in prosperity and abundance, however we do require to have an appropriate and Biblical attitude towards it, and to use it in the correct means.
Money is not evil and having money is not evil, Jesus came to delivery what I call the “sozo” package and this involve prosperity.
Poverty is a curse as listed in Deuteronomy 28, and is not meant for the born again believer.
Money is an essential part of the Kingdom; we need people to have money to give in order to run church, send out ministries, buy Bibles etc.
It is not evil; it is the wrong attitude that causes the problems.
Loving God and using money is the correct attitude for the born again believer; with that attitude money can serve us instead of the other way round.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that Jesus died so that I could live in abundance and prosperity, thank you that He died to remove the curse of poverty”.
Luke 16 v 13…..No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon
