You Can’t Take “It” With You…Either Up To Heaven Or Down To The Pit!! But You Still NOW, Can Choose Either!!
By Lisa Bell-Hanner:
Confidence of The Foolish:
That is, Some, Even Many; But You Can Never Say ALL!!
Psalm 49:6-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
God’s Holy Word Teaches:
6 “Those who trust in their wealth
And boast in the multitude of their riches,
7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother,
Nor give to God a ransom for him—
8 For the redemption of their souls is costly,
And it shall cease forever—
9 That he should continue to live eternally,
And not see the Pit.
10 For he sees wise men die; Likewise the fool and the senseless person perish, And leave their wealth to others.
11 Their inner thought is that their houses will last forever, Their dwelling places to all generations;
They call their lands after their own names.
12 Nevertheless man, though in honor, does not remain;
He is like the beasts that perish.
13 This is the way of those who are foolish,And of their posterity who approve their sayings. Selah
14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave;
Death shall feed on them; The upright shall have dominion over them in the morning;And their beauty shall be consumed in the grave, far from their dwelling.
15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave,
For He shall receive me.
16 Do not be afraid when one becomes rich,
When the glory of his house is increased;
17 For when he dies he shall carry nothing away;
His glory shall not descend after him.
18 Though while he lives he blesses himself
(For men will praise you when you do well for yourself),
19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers;
They shall never see light.
20 A man who is in honor, yet does not understand,
Is like the beasts that perish”
For Some, Money is viewed as a Blessing; Others see Money as A Potential to Be A Blessing to Others; Without Having A “LOVE “of Money in their Mind or Heart.
Yet, Some WILL Attempt to Put Money Above God; Replace God; Forget God; or Sadly, Claiming to Be a god; Equal to God, Even Above God. Because of One’s Pride, Selfishness, and Greed for Money; is where the Downfall of Money Occurs.
For “Some” Money Can be A Stumbling Block. Again, You Can Never Say All!! It Must Be Duly Noted that Having Money; Even an Abundance of it, is Not a Sin!!
Money is Necessary to do Most things Here On Earth; and that includes Helping and Blessing Others; and Providing for One’s Family and Self!!
Therefore, Choose to Be
1 Timothy 6:10 King James Version (KJV; ESV)
8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
10 For the “LOVE” of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows”
Hebrews 13:5 English Standard Version (ESV) 5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
It also, Must Be Duly Noted; that The Most High God of Heaven and Earth, and The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; Does Not Want Anyone to Perish Because over Money and Lose his or her Eternal Soul; and End up; in Much Discomfort Eternally!!
Mark 8:36 English Standard Version (ESV)
36 “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?”
Still NOW, You have the Opportunity to Choose the “One” Way; that is Through Christ Jesus, the Lord; For Salvation from Sin and the Hope of Eternal Life; and A Home in Heaven with the Heavenly Father and the King Jesus. The Slain Lamb, Who Right NOW, LIVES; and He is Ruling And REIGNING; At the Right of His Father in Heaven; Upon His Father’s Holy Throne!!
Not Carnality but Christ:
3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God”
The Lord Jesus is King
Forever and Ever!!!
