Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God?


The gospel of mammon teaches that "poverty is choice", and one instance the preachers of that gospel cite to justify that teaching is that of Abraham and Lazarus.

According to them the reason Abraham was rich was because he didn't chose poverty, while Lazarus was poor because he chose poverty.

So if that be the case, then how about all the poor prophets, apostles, and righteous men of God of old time, some of whom lived in abject poverty? Were they also poor because they chose poverty?

If yes, there's another similar teaching of the gospel of mammon that "poverty is a curse". So does that also mean that all those poor prophets, apostles, righteous men of God were also cursed?

If yes, that means they also chose to be cursed, because they were only poor because they chose poverty which was a curse according to the gospel of mammon and her preachers.

And just to give an idea of some of those prophets, apostles and righteous men of God of old assumed to be cursed according to the gospel of mammon just because they were poor men to better grasp the meaning of that teaching, they Include Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, John the Baptist, Peter, John, and even Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, that is men whose walk with God were at par with that of Abraham or possibly higher, so it wouldn't be that it was because they has done something wrong, which Abraham did right that made poverty which was a curse, according to the gospel of mammon, to come upon them and not Abraham.

Moreover It's might also be helpful to note that some of these poor men were used by God to provide the needs and feed many people amounting to an entire nation. And they also brought out some persons, families and even nations out of poverty, as in some instances they were shown to have singlehandedly reversed the economic fortunes of some nations for the better.

Yet they were cursed according to the gospel of mammon just because they were poor themselves. So maybe they should have chosen to enrich themselves instead, and not those persons, families and nations who needs God used them to meet so that they wouldn't be cursed, since all that it took for them not to be cursed was not to be poor.

That should give an idea of how desperately ridiculous the teachings of the gospel of mammon is, as that couldn't be any further from the Truth.

Because it couldn't get any more blessed than these poor men in the sight of God, to prove that this teaching from the gospel of mammon is a lie which could have only emanated from the deepest parts of hell.

Jesus said:

"Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." {Luke 12:15 (KJV)}

So in the sight of God possession of earthly riches doesn't determine who is blessed or who is cursed, but it's only in sight of men that such applies. Hence this saying of Jesus to the Pharisees of His day:

"Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." {Luke 16:15 (KJV)}

So it's no coincidence that this saying of Jesus was directed at the Pharisees of His day who were the devoted preachers of this demonic gospel at the time, who used earthly riches and possessions to justify themselves in the sight of men as men who were blessed, but Jesus made them know that they were cursed in the sight of God. Luke 16:9-14

Luke 16:9-14

Therefore the preachers of the gospel of mammon of our time, could be said to be the present-day version of the Pharisees, so it's not hard to see why of all the poor prophets, apostles, and righteous men of God in the Bible, it was only a poor Lazarus who was the last if not the least example of such, that they could have seen to compare with Abraham, because the other examples would have favorably compared with Abraham in the respect of their walk with God, which would have easily exposed the ulterior motive of such an idea from the onset.

For it wasn't riches that made Abraham to be blessed in God's sight, but because he was obedient to God's Word, so even if Abraham was poor, he would still be blessed as long as he remained obedient to God's Word, for that was what made him to be blessed in the sight of God.

And the same applied to Job, David, Daniel, Joseph, etc., and all those rich men who walked with God, it wasn't earthly riches but heavenly riches that made them blessed in the sight of God.

That's how they just as the poor men of God were all blessed men before God, for earthly riches was not a factor in determining who is blessed in the sight of God but obedience of God's Word.

And the same applies to those who are cursed, for it's not determined by earthly riches but those who are disobedient to God's Word, hence the Pharisees despite being rich were cursed and an abomination in the sight of God, because it takes the disobedience of God's Word to be cursed.

That's why God didn't have any qualms with some of His true servants being poor as He had shown overtime, in fact He had on some occasions deliberately made them poor, as in the instance of Elijah whose abject poverty was clearly shown to be God's own making.

And one occasion that proved this was when he had to depend on the Ravens, God send to feed him in the wilderness and the Brook that God used to provide water for him. {1 King 17:2-6}

Then when the brook dried up, which I believe was the Lord's doing also, God sent him to a extremely poor widow, who with her son who were preparing their last meal of their lives, to feed him:

1 Kings 17:12 (KJV)

12 And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

Now that was the woman that God said He had commanded to sustain Elijah, so doesn't that illustrate how God thinks?

This was the saying of Jesus concerning the same woman:

Luke 4:25-26 (KJV)

25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;
26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.

That showed that Elijah was actually sent by God to help the woman and not the other way around, except that by helping the poor man of God, she was helping herself, and that was why I believe God made the brook dry up, to use His abjectly poor prophet Elijah to save the life of the poor widow and her son.

1 Kings 17:13-16 (KJV)

13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

So that was the kind of man we are talking about, a man who had the hand of God upon his life, and hence had at his disposal the power to make rich and make poor, and to determine the economy of nations, but yet he was a man who lived in abject poverty all the days of his life.

So did that make him any less blessed than those who were rich?

That's what the gospel of mammon teaches, but not according to the gospel of Truth which teaches that earthly riches doesn't determine who is blessed or cursed in the sight of God, but the obedience of God's Word.

Luke 11:28 (KJV)

28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Therefore in the sight of God, anyone who keeps the Word of God is blessed but any one who doesn't is cursed!

I'm not against prosperity or people being rich, but I strongly believe that it should be up to God to determine who becomes rich or who doesn't, and not man. And that anyone inclusive of church leaders and christians who think that it's up to them to determine such for themselves, are yet at the elementary or kindergarten level, and have not even started when it came to the level that such men like Elijah walked with God, where it was up to God to decide that and not him.

Because at that level of walk with God, you don't choose riches or poverty, but you choose God's Will, so it's up to God to decide whether He's going to make you rich or poor because He knows what best suits His purpose and plans for the lives of every one including you.

The Will of God for every one is that they have their needs met, which can be corroborated by the request made by Jesus in His model prayer, which is, "give this day us our daily bread", as that is a need that applies to every human being.

The idea being sold by the modern-day Pharisees to justify the preaching of gospel of mammon, that it's meant to enrich the people and to provide for God's work is completely unfounded and false, because it's God's job to provide for His work, but man's job to seek Him and to do His Will.

That's why Jesus didn't need to preach the gospel of mammon (Prosperity) to be able provide the place required for His body to be laid after His death, but He did the Will of God and preached the Gospel of Truth, and when the time came, God provided for His own work by Himself through the rich man called Joseph of Arimathaea, who already had the place required for the body of His only begotten Son Jesus to be laid in fulfilment of the scriptures. Isaiah 53:9

Also the church Jesus founded didn't need the preaching of the gospel of mammon, but they did the Will of God and preached the Gospel of Truth as Jesus did Himself and had instructed them to do, and God provided for His own work by Himself through whomsoever He will.

Acts 4:34-35 (KJV)

34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

So if the church didn't need it then, then the church doesn't need it now, moreover, in spite of all their preaching of the gospel of mammon which they claim is intended to enrich the people and to provide for God's work, it has hardly ever resulted in such a situation where there was no lack among the people, as it was in the church Jesus founded which didn't preach the gospel of mammon.

On the contrary, the gospel of mammon has proven over time to enrich only a few, at the expense of many, and also shown to only inspire covetousness in people, as illustrated by the instance of the Pharisees who were preachers of this demonic doctrine, whose covetousness were being exposed by Jesus.

Luke 16:11-14 (KJV)

11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?
13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.

But instead of heeding the saying of Jesus concerning their worship of mammon and hence repenting from it, they derided Jesus and perhaps mocked Him that He was only doing that out of envy for their riches, therefore it shouldn't be a surprise if the Pharisees of our time do same when their mammon worshipping is being called out.

God bless.

Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by Nobody: 7:38am On Nov 27, 2019
Elijah was a true prophet of God, yet he lived in abject poverty.

Still some church leaders and their followers claim that they cannot be poor because their God is not a poor God, in order to justify their covetousness and the preaching of the gospel of mammon.

So I want to ask them the question, was the God of Elijah, a poor God?

Or do they think they are better than prophet Elijah?
Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by Nobody: 9:04am On Nov 28, 2019
Imagine some church leaders and members that have not been able to call down fire from heaven as the poor man called Elijah was able to do, are yet saying that they cannot be poor because they don't serve a poor God.

So are they trying to tell us that prophet Elijah who was abjectly poor served a poor God?

The gospel of mammon teaches that "Poverty is a curse", and prophet Elijah who was able to divide the river Jordan into two by the power of God and walked on dry ground in between, lived in abject poverty.

If yes, there's another similar teaching of the gospel of mammon that "poverty is a curse". So does that also mean that all those poor prophets, apostles, righteous men of God were also cursed?

If yes, that means they also chose to be cursed, because they were only poor because they chose poverty which was a curse according to the gospel of mammon and her preachers.

And just to give an idea of some of those prophets, apostles and righteous men of God of old assumed to be cursed according to the gospel of mammon just because they were poor men to better grasp the meaning of that teaching, they Include Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, John the Baptist, Peter, John, and even Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, that is men whose walk with God were at par with that of Abraham or possibly higher, so it wouldn't be that it was because they has done something wrong, which Abraham did right that made poverty which was a curse, according to the gospel of mammon, to come upon them and not Abraham.

IT IS SO IRRITATING TO FIND PEOPLE FUMBLING AND BUMBLING BLINDLY, IN AN EFFORT TO FIND THE TRUTH- WHICH WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM, THE WHOLE TIME!

The so-called Gospel of Poverty has Its place.

The so-called Gospel of Mammon has Its place.

MAMMON cannot be ruled out.
POVERTY cannot be ruled out.

AFFLUENCE and DEPRIVATION are Fundamental Laws of Creation.

A POOR MAN has similarity with God.

A RICH MAN has similarity with God.

However, when practiced for their own sake, the Fundamental Truth can be lost in the Tunnel Vision.

For instance, lots of people surely gave up Riches and Wealth to join The Roman Catholic Church's Monastic/Nunnery System, taking Sacred Vows of Chastity and Poverty- only to learn, eventually, of the incredible corruption in the Church Leadership.

For instance, POPE ALEXANDER VI had an illegitimate son, with whom he contracted syphilis after a night of Whoredom, leading to the sequence of events that has sidelined Natural Herbalism and established Toxic Alchemy as the Government-Approved Medical Treatment in Western Civilization.

[See: THE MEDICAL CONSPIRACY, by William Schnoebelen.]

It gets worse: that very Pope commissioned the greatest Artist of the time, Leonardo da Vinci, to make the face of the Lord Yeshua, not only a White man, but the likeness of that illegitimate son: CESARE BORGIA.

When Monks and Nuns learn about the corruption, they cannot do anything, because they have given away all their Power.

A similar situation obtains for Protestant Clergymen and Clergy women today.

If they complain about and actively fight the corruption in their chosen Churches, their titles and standing can be taken away by the same System that gave them to them.

THE BIBLE GIVES GUIDELINES ON HOW TO ACQUIRE EVEN STUPENDOUS WEALTH, STARTING FROM ABJECT POVERTY.

Oyinbo Theology is never going to teach their Colonial Subjects THAT! Why should they?

jesusjnr:

Moreover It's might also be helpful to note that some of these poor men were used by God to provide the needs and feed many people amounting to an entire nation. And they also brought out some persons, families and even nations out of poverty, as in some instances they were shown to have singlehandedly reversed the economic fortunes of some nations for the better.

THE EXAMPLES YOU CITED:

MOSES: was an adopted Prince of Egypt.
He voluntarily gave that up to be a Hebrew Freedom-Fighter- killing one tyrannical Slave Master at a time.

If he could only have kept it up, God shouldn't have needed to step in.

He was a herdsman for forty years- that's not a poor occupation, unless one is lazy. Which he wasn't. Whatever herds he owned by right were surely returned to him, and he got to take them on the EXODUS with him.

YESHUA bar NUN: was surely not a poor man. He was Israel's greatest War Hero. God specifically gave him, and only him, THE KEY TO GOOD SUCCESS.

ELIJAH: was surely poor: he was a hermit, who owned no farm- even though every Israelite who wasn't a Levite, had land.

Apparently, he wasn't Spiritual enough to own property. That happens.

ELISHA: was another extremely "Spiritual Guy," whose Spirituality depended on being Materially-Deprived.

YONAH: had enough money to book passage on a ship that was going so far away, that he thought GOD wouldn't be able to find him. That should take money.

Whatever property he may have owned couldn't have been of use to him, and didn't figure into his story.

YOCHANNAN BAPTIST: his father worked in The Temple: no way his parents were poor. He gave up materialism to become Spiritual enough to meet and identity the HaMISHIACH- a thing no other Prophet had been able do.

CEPHAS: was a fisherman: that was not a poor job.

YOCHANNAN the Beloved: another fisherman, was surely not poor.

LORD YESHUA: he inherited his father Yosef's Carpentry trade. That is hard to be poor in.

MATERIAL POSSESSIONS REQUIRE SPIRITUAL ENERGY TO POSSESS.

There are four classes of Spirituality. Our default class is determined by the mean of our parents' Spiritual Energy levels at the time they conceived us.

oaroloye:

. REVELATION 22:11-12.

11. "He that is UNJUST,
let him be Unjust still:
and he which is FILTHY,
let him be Filthy still:
and he that is RIGHTEOUS,
let him be Righteous still:
and he that is HOLY,
let him be Holy still.
12. "And, behold,
I come quickly;
and my Reward is with me,
to give every man According
as his Work shall be."

ANYONE CAN ATTAIN HOLINESS- NO MATTER THEIR DEFAULT ENERGY CATEGORY.

oaroloye:

. LEVITICUS 19:1-2.

AND The LORD
Spake unto Moses,
Saying,

2. "Speak unto all
The Congregation of
The Children of Israel,
and say unto them,

'YE SHALL BE HOLY:
FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD
(AM) HOLY."


But if one is conceived in the low Spiritual Energy Classes, the harder it is for them to attain Holiness- or even to see the necessity and urgency for doing so.

The quickest way to lower your Spiritual Energy level is to have a lot of RECREATIONAL SEX.

Therefore, the lower Spiritual Energy Categories are common, the World over, because most people do not know this.

Therefore, the precious little Spiritual Energy most people have is tied up in the process of merely surviving from day-to-day, let alone possessing significant Riches.

Yet they were cursed according to the gospel of mammon just because they were poor themselves. So maybe they should have chosen to enrich themselves instead, and not those persons, families and nations who needs God used them to meet so that they wouldn't be cursed, since all that it took for them not to be cursed was not to be poor.

That should give an idea of how desperately ridiculous the teachings of the gospel of mammon is, as that couldn't be any further from the Truth.

EVERY HUMAN BEING IS CURSED: MAN WAS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD- BUT WAS DEPRIVED OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD AND THE POWER OF GOD.

That is not BLESSEDNESS!

That is ACCURSEDNESS!

The creatures that do not even have the Image of God are even more accursed.

Every Human Being has been Cursed by God, and the Purpose of The Gospel of Lord Yeshua is to neutralize this COMPOUND CURSE, and replace It with BLESSEDNESS on every Front, Back, Top, Bottom, and Side.

jesusjnr:

Because it couldn't get any more blessed than these poor men in the sight of God, to prove that this teaching from the gospel of mammon is a lie which could have only emanated from the deepest parts of hell.

YOUR IGNORANCE OF THE TRUE STATE OF MAN HAS LED YOU TO BLASPHEME.

THE GOSPEL OF MAMMON cannot come from Hell.

THE GOSPEL OF POVERTY cannot come from Hell.

The PERVERSION of The Gospels of POVERTY/MAMMON come from SATAN.

Nothing Satanic comes from Hell: it is HEADED TOWARDS HELL.

It is OYINBO MYTHOLOGY that says that SATAN is LUCIFER, and that THE DEVIL is THE KING OF HELL.

That is STUPID!

That is like saying that an INMATE is the KING of a Prison!

Even if he is PABLO ESCOBAR- who BUILT the prison he was jailed in- and left when he had had enough- no PRISONER is RULER of any PRISON.

If that were the case, it would no longer be a PRISON!

In using that language, you show that you are ruled by OYINBO SUPERSTITIONS, and not THE WORD OF GOD.

The most Blessed Man who ever walked the Earth was LORD YESHUA (*Duh!*) who, was accursed throughout his Ministry- merely less so than other Prophets.

He was much more Wealthy than Solomon, who had access to a MOUNTAIN of Gold- by application of Wisdom.

Lord Yeshua could CREATE anything he needed by Spiritual Power: if he had needed a mountain of Gold, he would have had it.

He was chased around the country by his enemies: THAT IS NOT A [i]BLESSING!

He was sold into Slavery, and Beaten upon: THAT IS NOT A BLESSING.

He was CRUCIFIED TO DEATH: that is not a Blessing!

Upon his Resurrection, he was DENIED the option of facing his accusers, and showing them that GOD had OVERRULED their Judgment.

That is NOT a BLESSING!

Lord Yeshua might be more Blessed than any other Man, but there are Blessings he has not fully, if at all, acquired, and curses he has not fully, if at all, nullified.

It is the TASK of THE CHURCH to VINDICATE our Lord and his GOSPEL: only when we have done that, can he return to the Earth to be seen by all.

jesusjnr:

Jesus said:

"Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." {Luke 12:15 (KJV)}

So in the sight of God possession of earthly riches doesn't determine who is blessed or who is cursed, but it's only in sight of men that such applies. Hence this saying of Jesus to the Pharisees of His day:

"Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." {Luke 16:15 (KJV)}

POSSESSION OR DEPRIVATION OF RICHES AND WEALTH INDICATES HOW BLESSED OR ACCURSED A PERSON IS.

Unless you are so shallow-minded, that you only look at the MONEY and PROPERTY and HOW it is acquired.

A FOOL would say that it does not matter HOW they acquired Wealth- just so long as they had it. Okay, if your "Horrorscope" said that you would acquire a BOULDER of PURE GOLD today, you might be very happy- until you saw it falling on you- with no chance to escape!

Most Wealthy people have their money that way: IT IS IN AN ACCIDENT WITH THEM- they COLLIDED with it!

For example, STEVE JOBS and BILL GATES got their start in the Computer Industry by legally acquiring other people's ideas, and patenting them as their own. They became two of the richest men on Earth.

Steve Jobs used Mind-Altering Drugs to spark his creativity. Overuse of them evidently gave him PANCREATIC CANCER.

The circle of "FRIENDS" that he made does not seem to have told him how he could cure his Cancer.

He even used his money to buy another person's Pancreas to replace his own, but it didn't work.

He died stupidly.

BILL GATES is surely suffering the penalty of his misdeeds- it just isn't being publicized.

He was exposed on TED, boasting that he was using VACCINES to curtail the surplus (i.e. THIRD WORLD!) Population Growth.

This is not a well man!

The end result of this lifestyle is not even HELL: it is to be EATEN by Devils at the time of Death.

The absorption of Spiritual Energy needed for Perception and Cognition by excessive Material Possessions leads to THAT fate.

Poor people as well as wealthy experience it. Only the Poor have a greater chance of escaping, because they do not have so much to give up, and are not as attached to it.

So it's no coincidence that this saying of Jesus was directed at the Pharisees of His day who were the devoted preachers of this demonic gospel at the time, who used earthly riches and possessions to justify themselves in the sight of men as men who were blessed, but Jesus made them know that they were cursed in the sight of God. Luke 16:9-14

Continued below.

LORD YESHUA'S REBUKE WAS NOT ABOUT RICHES BEING WRONG, BUT HOW THEY WERE ACQUIRED.

The Pharisees were making money from CORRUPTING THE LAW.

.. [b]LUKE 16:1-15.


AND he Said also
unto his Disciples,

"There was a certain rich man,
which had a steward;
and the same was accused unto him
that he had wasted his goods.
2. "And he called him,
and said unto him,

'HOW IS IT THAT
I HEAR THIS OF THEE?
GIVE AN ACCOUNT
OF THY STEWARDSHIP;
FOR THOU MAYEST BE
NO LONGER STEWARD.'


3. "Then the steward said
within himself,

'WHAT SHALL I DO?
FOR MY LORD
TAKETH AWAY FROM ME
THE STEWARDSHIP:
I CANNOT DIG,
TO BEG I AM ASHAMED.
4. 'I AM RESOLVED
WHAT TO DO,
THAT, WHEN I AM
PUT OUT OF THE STEWARDSHIP,
THEY MAY RECEIVE ME
INTO THEIR HOUSES.'


5. "So he called every one
of his lord's debtors unto him,
and said unto the first,

'HOW MUCH OWEST THOU
UNTO MY LORD?'


6. "And he said,

'AN HUNDRED MEASURES OF OIL.'

And he said unto him,

'TAKE THY BILL,
AND SIT DOWN QUICKLY,
AND WRITE FIFTY.'


7. "Then said he to another,

'AND HOW MUCH
OWEST THOU?'


And he said,

'AN HUNDRED MEASURES OF WHEAT.'

And he said unto him,

'TAKE THY BILL,
AND WRITE FOURSCORE.'


8. "And the lord commended
the Unjust Steward,
because he had done wisely:
for The Children of this World
are in their Generation
wiser than
The Children of Light.
9. "And I Say unto you,

'MAKE TO YOURSELVES FRIENDS
OF THE MAMMON
OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS;
THAT, WHEN YE FAIL,
THEY MAY RECIEVE YOU
INTO EVERLASTING HABITATIONS.'


10. "He that is Faithful
in that which is Least
is Faithful also in Much:
and he that is Unjust
in the Least
is Unjust also in Much.
11. "If therefore ye
have not been Faithful
in the Unrighteous Mammon,
who will commit to your trust
The True Riches?
12. "And if ye have not
been Faithful
in that which is
another man's,
who shall give you
that which is your own?
13. "No Servant can
serve two Masters:
for either he will
hate the one,
and love the other;
or else he will
hold to the one,
and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and Mammon."

14. And the Pharisees also,
who were Covetous,
heard all these things,
and they derided him.
15. And he Said unto them,

"Ye are they
which justify yourselves
before Men;
but God knoweth
your hearts:
for that which is
Highly Esteemed
amongst Men
is Abomination
in The Sight of God."

IF THEY SHOULD HAVE REPENTED, AND GIVEN UP A SIGNIFICANT FRACTION OF THEIR WEALTH TO THE POOR, THEY WOULD HAVE REGAINED ENOUGH SPIRITUAL ENERGY TO UNDERSTAND AND USE THE GOSPEL.

The most important difference between giving to the (supposed) House of God, and giving to the Poor, is that if you do not give to the Poor, you do not have to deal with them and their Problems.

Which makes it unlikely that you will ever learn how to solve those Problems, if you never had those experiences.

The Richest man on Earth is less than a Beggar in Heaven.

The Knowledge of how to succeed as a BEGGAR on Earth, to become a veritable KING, is APPLICABLE in Heaven, where one STARTS FROM ZERO-PRESENCE, and ZERO-POSSESSION, then attains GOD-LEVEL, with DUE DILIGENCE.

These are the sort of people whom God is looking for.

Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by oaroloye(m): 4:42am On Dec 02, 2019
MISHIGAS!

Have any of you even bothered to read the lives of ELIJAH and ELISHA?

IF YOU KNEW WHAT ELIJAH AND ELISHA EXPERIENCED, YOU WOULD HAVE NO DIFFICULTY IN UNDERSTANDING WHY THEY CHOSE POVERTY!



. 1st KINGS 18:7-13.

7. And as Obadiah was in the way,
behold, Elijah met him:
and he knew him,
and fell on his face,
and said,

"Art thou that my lord Elijah?"

8. And he answered him,

"I am:
go, tell thy lord,

'BEHOLD, ELIJAH IS HERE.' "

9. And he said,

"What have I Sinned,
that thou wouldest deliver thy servant
into the hand of Ahab,
to slay me?
10. "As The LORD thy God liveth,
there is no nation or kingdom,
whither my lord hath not
sent to seek thee:
and when they said,

'HE IS NOT THERE;'

he took an oath
of the kingdom and nation,
that they found thee not.
11. "And now thou sayest,

'GO, TELL THY LORD,

"BEHOLD, ELIJAH IS HERE." '


12. "And it shall
come to pass,
as soon as I am
gone from thee,
that the Spirit of The LORD
shall carry thee
whither I know not;
and so when I come
and tell Ahab,
and he cannot find thee,
he shall slay me:
but I thy servant
fear The LORD
from my youth."

13. "Was it not told my lord
what I did when Jezebel
slew the Prophets of The LORD,
how I hid an hundred men
of The LORD'S Prophets
by fifty in a cave,
and fed them
with bread and water?"

ELISHA WAS THE APPRENTICE OF ELIJAH, THE SOLE SURVIVING PROPHET OF A MASSACRE ORDERED BY QUEEN JEZEBEL, BUT CARRIED OUT BY CHILDREN, WHOM ELIJAH HAD FOOLISHLY ALLOWED TO GROW TO ADULTHOOD!

I seem to be the only Christian on Earth who knows that.

. 2nd KINGS 2:23-25.

23. And he went up from thence
unto Bethel:
and as he was
going up by the way,
there came forth little children
out of the city,
and mocked him,
and said unto him,

"Go up, thou bald head;
go up, thou bald head."

24. And he turned back,
and looked on them,
and cursed them
in the Name of The LORD.
And there came forth
two she bears out of the wood,
and tare forty and two children
of them.
25. And he went from thence
to mount Carmel,
and from thence
he returned to Samaria.

THESE CHILDREN BROKE SPECIFIC COMMANDMENTS- FOR WHICH THE PENALTY IS, IF NOT DEATH, CERTAINLY NOT LONG-LIFE AND PROSPERITY!

1. DESPISING AN ELDER AND A STRANGER.

. LEVITICUS 19:32-37.

32. Thou shalt rise up
before the hoary head,
and honour the face
of the old man,
and fear thy God:
I (am) The LORD.
33. "And if a stranger
sojourn with thee in your land,
ye shall not vex him.
34. " (But) the stranger
that dwelleth with you
shall be unto you
as one born among you,
and thou shalt love him
as thyself;
for ye were strangers
in the land of Egypt:
I (am) The LORD your God.
35. "Ye shall do
no unrighteousness in Judgment,
in meteyard, in weight,
or in measure.
36. "Just balances,
just weights,
a just ephah,
and a just hin,
shall ye have:
I (am) The LORD your God,
Which brought you
out of the land of Egypt.
37.Therefore shall ye
observe all My Statutes,
and all My Judgments,
and do them:
I am The LORD."

2. COMMITTING INIQUITY (DELIBERATE SIN).

. NUMBERS 15:27-31.

27. "And if any Soul Sin
through ignorance,
then he shall bring a she goat
of the first year
for a Sin Offering.
28. And the Priest shall
make an Atonement
for the Soul
that Sinneth Ignorantly,
when he Sinneth
by Ignorance
before The LORD,
to make an Atonement for him;
and it shall be forgiven him.
29. "Ye shall have One Law
for him that Sinneth through Ignorance,
both for him that is born
among the Children of Israel,
and for the Stranger that sojourneth
among them.
30. "But the Soul
that doeth ought presumptuously,
whether he be
born in the land,
or a Stranger,
the same Reproacheth
The LORD;
and that Soul shall be cut off
from among his people.
31. "Because he hath despised
The Word of The LORD,
and hath broken His Commandment,
that Soul shall utterly be cut off;
his Iniquity shall be upon him."

3. CONTINUING IN THE INIQUITIES OF THEIR PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, AND GREAT-GRANDPARENTS.

.     EXODUS 20:1-7.

AND God Spake
all these Words,
Saying,

2. "I (am) The LORD thy God,
Which have brought thee
out of The Land of Egypt,
out of The House of Bondage.

3. "Thou shalt have
no other gods before Me.

4. "Thou shalt not
make unto thee
any graven image,
or any likeness (of any thing)
that (is) in the Earth beneath,
or that (is) in the Water
under the Earth:
5. "Thou shalt not
bow down thyself to them,
nor serve them:
for I The LORD thy God
(am) a Jealous God,
visiting the iniquity
of the fathers
upon the third and fourth (generation)
of them that HATE ME.
6. "And shewing Mercy
unto thousands of them
which Love Me,
and Keep My Commandments.

7. "Thou shalt not
take The Name
of The LORD thy God
in vain;
for The LORD will not
hold him guiltless
that taketh His Name
in vain."

Note that God holds every Human accountable for the iniquities of their previous three generations.

4. FOLLOWING A MULTITUDE TO DO EVIL.

. EXODUS 23:1-3.

"THOU shalt not raise
a False Report:
put not thine hand
with the Wicked
to be an unrighteous Witness.
2. "Thou shalt not
follow a multitude
to do Evil;
neither shalt thou speak
in a cause to decline
after many
to wrest (judgment):
3. "Neither shalt thou
countenance a poor man
in his cause."

5. FAILURE TO DILIGENTLY LEARN THE LAW OF GOD, AND APPLY IT WITH MAXIMUM EFFORT.

. DEUTERONOMY 6:4-9.

4. Hear, O Israel:
The LORD our God is one LORD:
5. And thou shalt love
The LORD thy God
with all thine Heart,
and with all thy Soul,
and with all thy might.
6. And these Words,
which I Command thee this day,
shall be in thine heart:
7. And thou shalt teach Them
diligently unto thy children,
and shalt talk of Them
when thou sittest
in thine house,
and when thou walkest
by the way,
and when thou liest down,
and when thou risest up.
8. And thou shalt bind Them
for a sign upon thine hand,
and they shall be as frontlets
between thine eyes.
9. And thou shalt write Them
upon the posts of thy house,
and on thy gates.

6. FAILURE TO REMEMBER THE HISTORY OF THEIR PEOPLE.

. DEUTERONOMY 8:1-6.

ALL The Commandments
Which I Command thee this day
shall ye observe to do,
that ye may live,
and multiply,
and go in and possess the land
which The LORD
Sware unto your fathers.
2. And thou shalt remember
all the Way which The LORD
thy God led thee
these forty years
in the wilderness,
to humble thee,
and to prove thee,
to know what was
in thine heart,
whether thou wouldest
keep His Commandments,
or no.
3. And He humbled thee,
and suffered thee to hunger,
and fed thee with Manna,
which thou knewest not,
neither did thy fathers know;
that He might
make thee know that

"MAN DOTH NOT
LIVE BY BREAD ONLY
BUT BY EVERY (WORD)
THAT PROCEEDETH
OUT OF THE MOUTH
OF THE LORD
DOTH MAN LIVE."


4. Thy raiment waxed not
old upon thee,
neither did thy foot swell,
these forty years.
5. Thou shalt also consider
in thine heart,

"THAT, AS A MAN
CHASTENETH HIS SON,
SO THE LORD THY GOD
CHASTENETH THEE."


6. Therefore thou shalt keep
The Commandments of
The LORD thy God,
to walk in His Ways,
and to fear Him.

Only through people like Elisha were they even alive- yet this was how they repaid him!!!

7. DISRESPECTING A PROPHET.

. DEUTERONOMY 18:15-19.

5. The LORD thy God will
raise up unto thee
a Prophet from
the midst of thee,
of thy Brethren,
like unto Me;
unto him ye shall hearken;
16. According to all
that thou desiredst
of The LORD thy God
in Horeb in
the Day of the Assembly,
saying,

"LET ME NOT
HEAR AGAIN
THE VOICE OF THE LORD
MY GOD,
NEITHER LET ME SEE
THIS GREAT FIRE
ANY MORE,
THAT I DIE NOT."


17. And The LORD Said unto me,

"THEY HAVE
WELL SPOKEN
THAT WHICH
THEY HAVE SPOKEN.
18. "I WILL RAISE THEM UP
A PROPHET
FROM AMONG THEIR BRETHREN,
LIKE UNTO THEE,
AND WILL PUT
MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH;
AND HE SHALL
SPEAK UNTO THEM
ALL THAT I SHALL
COMMAND HIM.
19. "AND IT SHALL
COME TO PASS,
THAT WHOSOEVER
WILL NOT HEARKEN
UNTO MY WORDS
WHICH HE SHALL
SPEAK IN MY NAME,
I WILL REQUIRE IT
OF HIM.”


8. FAILURE TO CHOOSE LIFE- FOR THEMSELVES, THEIR PARENTS, AND THEIR FUTURE OFFSPRING.

. DEUTERONOMY 30:19-20.

19. I call Heaven and Earth
to record this day against you,
that I have set before you
Life and Death,
Blessing and Cursing:
therefore CHOOSE LIFE,

That both thou
and thy seed may live:

20. That thou mayest
love The LORD thy God,

And that thou mayest
obey His Voice,

and that thou mayest
cleave unto Him:

for He is thy Life,
and the Length of thy days:

That thou mayest dwell
in the land
which The LORD Sware
unto thy fathers,
to Abraham, to Isaac,
and to Jacob,
to give them.

THEY CHOSE DEATH- JUST LIKE YOU!

I know that you have been told not to listen to me, nor contribute to my Ministry.

Those who told you so are your True Enemies.

What I tell you is of the utmost importance, and there is nothing funny about it.

Remember that you will have to give account of why you did not apply The Truths I have apprised you of.

Remember that you will have to give account of your whole life at the time of your death, and that if you cannot do that, you will have no AfterLife.

Remember that no one else is telling you these things that I tell you.

. MATTHEW 12:22-37.

22. Then was
brought unto him
one possessed
with a Devil,
blind, and dumb:
and he healed him,
insomuch that
the blind and dumb
both spake and saw.
23. And all the people
were amazed,
and said,

"Is not this
The Son of David?"

24. But when
the Pharisees heard it,
they said,

"This fellow doth not
cast out devils,
but by Beelzebub
the Prince of the Devils."

25. And Jesus knew their thoughts,
and Said unto them,

"Every kingdom
divided against itself
is brought to desolation;
and every city or house
divided against itself
shall not stand:
26. "And if Satan
cast out Satan,
he is divided
against himself;
how shall then
his Kingdom stand?
27. "And if I by Beelzebub
cast out Devils,
by whom do your children
cast them out?
therefore they shall be
your judges.
28. "But if I cast out Devils
by the Spirit of God,
then The Kingdom of God
is come unto you.
29. "Or else how can one
enter into
a Strong Man's House,
and spoil his Goods,
except he first
bind the Strong Man?
And then he will
spoil his House.
30. "He that is not with me
is against me;
and he that
gathereth not with me
scattereth abroad.
31. "Wherefore I Say
unto you,

'ALL MANNER
OF SIN AND BLASPHEMY
SHALL BE FORGIVEN
UNTO MEN:
BUT THE BLASPHEMY
AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST
SHALL NOT BE FORGIVEN
UNTO MEN.'


32. "And whosoever
speaketh a word
against The Son of Man,
it shall be forgiven him:
but whosoever speaketh
against The Holy Ghost,
it shall not be forgiven him,
neither in this World,
neither in the World to come.
33. "Either make the tree good,
and his fruit good;
or else make the tree corrupt,
and his fruit corrupt:
for the tree is known
by his fruit.
34. "O generation of Vipers,
how can ye,
being evil,
speak good things?
For out of the abundance
of the heart
the mouth speaketh.
35. "A Good man
out of the Good Treasure
of the heart
bringeth forth Good Things:
and an Evil man
out of the Evil Treasure
bringeth forth Evil Things.
36. "But I Say unto you,

'THAT EVERY IDLE WORD
THAT MEN SHALL SPEAK,
THEY SHALL GIVE
ACCOUNT THEREOF
IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT.' “


37. "For by thy words
thou shalt be justified,
and by thy words
thou shalt be condemned."

EVERY SINGLE THING WE EXPERIENCE IN LIFE WAS CHOSEN BY US; WE CAN EXPERIENCE NOTHING THAT WE HAVE NOT CHOSEN TO EXPERIENCE.

. LUKE 5:36-39.

36. And he Spake also
a Parable unto them;

"No man putteth
a piece of a new garment
upon an old;
if otherwise,
then both the new
maketh a rent,
and the piece that was
taken out of the new
agreeth not with the old.
37. "And no man putteth
new wine into old bottles;
else the new wine
will burst the bottles,
and be spilled,
and the bottles shall perish.
38. "But new wine
must be put into new bottles;
and both are preserved.
39. "No man also
having drunk old wine
straightway desireth new:
for he saith,'

'THE OLD IS BETTER.' "

Objection to my Teachings is the sign that you are not Saved. I am well aware that not one person on NAIRALAND likes my Religious Posts, and everybody wants me gone, because they love Mercenary Unjust Stewards, who tell you anything in order to get you to give them money.

I know that none of you listen, and none of you believe me, when I tell you that you all chose to use less than 10% of your Consciousness, and no more than 1% of your awareness.

Only operating according to my directions- implementing BARNABAS' Interpretation of the KOSHER/TREIF LAW of LEVITICUS 11:1-47, and LAFAYETTE RONALD HUBBARD'S Secret Interpretation of MATTHEW 18:1-35, that he called "DIANETICS," can you restore your Consciousness and Awareness to 100%.

But you have chosen to be the most ridiculous runts and cripples in the Eyes of Heaven.

Nobody could choose that for you.

Not GOD, and not SATAN.

This is on YOU, and on the PARENTS YOU CHOSE over GOD!


.     EXODUS 20:1-7.

AND God Spake
all these Words,
Saying,

2. "I (am) The LORD thy God,
Which have brought thee
out of The Land of Egypt,
out of The House of Bondage.

3. "Thou shalt have
no other gods before Me.

4. "Thou shalt not
make unto thee
any graven image,
or any likeness (of any thing)
that (is) in the Earth beneath,
or that (is) in the Water
under the Earth:
5. "Thou shalt not
bow down thyself to them,
nor serve them:
for I The LORD thy God
(am) a Jealous God,
visiting the iniquity
of the fathers
upon the third and fourth (generation)
of them that Hate Me.
6. "And shewing Mercy
unto thousands of them
which Love Me,
and Keep My Commandments.

7. "Thou shalt not
take The Name
of The LORD thy God
in vain;
for The LORD will not
hold him guiltless
that taketh His Name
in vain."

REMEMBER THAT GOD HOLDS EVERY HUMAN BEING ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE INIQUITIES OF OUR PARENTS, THEIR GRANDPARENTS, AND THEIR GREAT-GRANDPARENTS!

There is no concept of "INNOCENT BABIES" or "INNOCENT CHILDREN" with God. If a family contributes to messing up God's Universe, every living member has a responsibility to clean up their share.

. NUMBERS 15:27-31.

27. "And if any Soul Sin
through ignorance,
then he shall bring a she goat
of the first year
for a Sin Offering.
28. And the Priest shall
make an Atonement
for the Soul that Sinneth Ignorantly,
when he Sinneth by Ignorance
before The LORD,
to make an Atonement for him;
and it shall be forgiven him.
29. "Ye shall have One Law
for him that Sinneth through Ignorance,
both for him that is born
among the Children of Israel,
and for the Stranger that sojourneth
among them.
30. "But the Soul
that doeth ought presumptuously,
whether he be
born in the land,
or a Stranger,
the same Reproacheth
The LORD;
and that Soul shall be cut off
from among his people.
31. "Because he hath despised
The Word of The LORD,
and hath broken His Commandment,
that Soul shall utterly be cut off;
his Iniquity shall be upon him."

. LEVITICUS 24:10-16.

10. And the son
of an Israelitish woman,
whose father was
an Egyptian,
went out among
the Children of Israel:
and this son of
the Israelitish woman
and a Man of Israel
strove together in the camp;
11. And the Israelitish
woman's son blasphemed
The Name of The LORD,
and cursed.
And they brought him
unto Moses:
[and his mother's name
was Shelomith,
the daughter of Dibri,
of the tribe of Dan:]
12. And they put him in ward,
that the Mind of The LORD
might be shewed them.
13. And The LORD Spake
unto Moses,
Saying,

14. "Bring forth him
that hath cursed
without the camp;
and let all that heard him
lay their hands upon his head,
and let all the Congregation
stone him.
15. "And thou shalt speak
unto the Children of Israel,
saying,

'WHOSOEVER CURSETH
HIS GOD
SHALL BEAR HIS SIN.'


16. "And he that blasphemeth
The Name of The LORD,
he shall surely be
put to Death,
and all the Congregation
shall certainly stone him:
as well the Stranger
as he that is Born in the land,
when he blasphemeth
The Name of The LORD,
shall be put to death."

PEOPLE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO TREAT THE SUBJECT OF "GOD" SERIOUSLY!

Ignoring The Truths I tell does not make them cease to exist, nor absolve you of liability.

COMMONSENSE SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU ALL, THAT ELIJAH SURVIVED JEZEBEL'S PURGE, BECAUSE HE WAS THE ONLY PROPHET WHO DIDN'T OWN A HOUSE.

Elisha learned from that.

The only times people successfully came to specifically assassinate them were times they stayed at a fixed location. Those were the only times they actually found their targets.
Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by oaroloye(m): 8:22am On Dec 02, 2019
SHALOM!

Some additional Historical data here:

. THE DIDACHE 11:1-12:5.

WHOSOEVER then
comes and teaches you
all these things aforesaid,
receive him. 
2. But if the teacher himself
be perverted and teach
another doctrine
to destroy these things,
do not listen to him,
but if his teaching be for
the increase of righteousness
and knowledge of the Lord,
receive him as the Lord. 
3. And concerning
the Apostles and Prophets,
act thus according
to the ordinance
of the Gospel. 
4. Let every Apostle
who comes to you
be received as the Lord, 
5. But let him not stay
more than one day,
or if need be
a second as well;
but if he stay three days,
he is a false prophet. 
6. And when an Apostle
goes forth
let him accept nothing
but bread
till he reach his night's lodging;
but if he ask for money,
he is a false prophet. 
7. Do not test
or examine any prophet
who is speaking in a spirit,

"FOR EVERY SIN
SHALL BE FORGIVEN,
BUT THIS SIN
SHALL NOT
BE FORGIVEN."


8. But not everyone
who speaks in a spirit
is a prophet,
except he have
the behaviour of the Lord.
From his behaviour,
then, the false prophet
and the true prophet
shall be known. 
9. And no prophet
who orders a meal
in a spirit
shall eat of it:
otherwise he is
a false prophet. 
10. And every prophet
who teaches truth,
if he do not what he teaches,
is a false prophet. 
11. But no prophet
who has been tried
and is genuine,
though he enact
a worldly mystery
of the Church,
if he teach not others
to do what he does himself,
shall be judged by you:
for he has his judgment
with God,
for so also did
the prophets of old. 
12. But whosoever
shall say in a spirit

"GIVE ME MONEY,
OR SOMETHING ELSE,"


you shall not listen to him;
but if he tell you to give
on behalf of others in want,
let none judge him.

LET everyone who
"comes in
the Name of the Lord"
be received;
but when you have
tested him
you shall know him,
for you shall
have understanding
of true and false. 
2. If he who comes
is a traveller,
help him
as much as you can,
but he shall not
remain with you more
than two days,
or, if need be,
three. 
3. And if he wishes
to settle among you
and has a craft,
let him work for his bread. 
4. But if he has no craft
provide for him according to
your understanding,
so that no man
shall live among you
in idleness
because he is a Christian. 
5. But if he will not do so,
he is making traffic of Christ;
beware of such.


THESE ANCIENT BELIEFS MAKES THE CATHEDRAL AND COMPLEX-BUILDING PROPHETS OF NOWADAYS LOOK RIDICULOUS!

Nonetheless, I have taught that the so-called "APOSTLES" deliberately SABOTAGED CHRISTIANITY with False, Anti-Gospel Teachings.


. MATTHEW 7:12-29.

12. "Therefore all things
whatsoever ye would
that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them:
for this is The Law and The Prophets.
13. "Enter ye in
at The Strait Gate:
for wide is the Gate,
and broad is the way,
that leadeth to Destruction,
and many there be
which go in thereat:
14. "Because strait is the Gate,
and narrow is The Way,
which leadeth unto Life,
and few there be that find it.
15. "Beware of False Prophets,
which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16. "Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles?
17. "Even so every Good Tree
bringeth forth Good Fruit;
but a Corrupt Tree
bringeth forth Evil Fruit.
18. "A Good Tree cannot
bring forth Evil Fruit,
neither can a Corrupt Tree
bring forth Good Fruit.
19. "Every tree that
bringeth not forth Good Fruit
is hewn down,
and cast into the Fire.
20 Wherefore by their Fruits
ye shall know them.
21. "Not every one
that saith unto me,
'Lord, Lord,' shall enter into
The Kingdom of Heaven;
but He that doeth
The Will of my Father
Which is in Heaven.
22 Many will say to me
in That Day,

'LORD, LORD,
HAVE WE NOT
PROPHESIED IN THY NAME?
AND IN THY NAME
HAVE CAST OUT DEVILS?
AND IN THY NAME
DONE MANY
WONDERFUL WORKS?'


23. "And then will I
profess unto them,

'I NEVER KNEW YOU:
DEPART FROM ME,
YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.'


24. "Therefore whosoever heareth
These Sayings of mine,
and doeth Them,
I will liken him unto
a Wise Man,
which built his house
upon a rock:
25. "And the rain descended,
and the floods came,
and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house;
and it fell not:
for it was founded
upon a rock.
26 . "And every one
that heareth
These Sayings of mine,
and doeth them not,
shall be likened unto
a Foolish Man,
which built his house
upon the sand:
27. "And the rain descended,
and the floods came,
and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house;
and it fell:
and great was the fall of it."
28. And it came to pass,
when Jesus had
ended these Sayings,
the people were astonished
at his Doctrine:
29. For He taught them
as one having authority,
and not as the scribes.

IT IS A SUITABLE EXERCISE FOR A CHRISTIAN TO SIT DOWN AND COMPARE THE TEACHINGS OF LORD YESHUA TO THE REST OF THE NEW TESTAMENT ESTEEMING EVERY CONTRADICTION TO BE FALSE PROPHECY AND FALSE TEACHING.

The Colonial Oyinbos successfully confused their victims by insisting that every verse of The Bible is "THE WORD OF GOD."

Of course, they withhold the facts of how The Bible was compiled in the first case.

How books were added and subtracted, edited and truncated to fit political and philosophical agendas.

For instance: 1st JOHN 5:7 did not fit ORIGEN ADAMANTIUS' ARIAN Agenda, so he removed it from the version he gave to Bishop EUSEBIUS of Caesarea for Emperor CONSTANTINE'S Roman Catholic Church.

This enables you to easily identify a Roman Catholic Bible.

Why would a PROTESTANT be using a Roman Catholic Bible, except they were an undercover agent of the Pope?

Therefore, they will be using "THE DEAD BIBLE," "THE BAD NEWS BIBLE," and other Riddles and Jokes, setting back the Reformation by 500 years, as excuses for preaching False Doctrines.

. ACTS 5:1-11.

BUT a certain man
named Ananias,
with Sapphira his wife,
sold a possession,
2. And kept back part
of the price,
his wife also being privy to it,
and brought a certain part,
and laid it at the Apostles' feet.
3. But Peter said,

"Ananias, why hath Satan
filled thine heart
to lie to the Holy Ghost,
and to keep back part
of the price of the land?
4. "Whiles it remained,
was it not thine own?
And after it was sold,
was it not
in thine own power?
Why hast thou conceived
this thing
in thine heart?
Thou hast not lied unto men,
but unto God."

5. And Ananias
hearing these words fell down,
and gave up the ghost:
and great fear
came on all them
that heard these things.
6. And the young men arose,
wound him up,
and carried him out,
and buried him.
7. And it was about the space
of three hours after,
when his wife,
not knowing what was done,
came in.
8. And Peter answered
unto her,

"Tell me whether
ye sold the land
for so much?"

And she said,

"Yea, for so much."

9. Then Peter said unto her,

"How is it that ye
have agreed together
to tempt
The Spirit of The Lord?
Behold,
the feet of them
which have buried
thy husband
are at the door,
and shall carry thee out."

10. Then fell she down straightway at his feet,
and yielded up the ghost:
and the young men came in,
and found her dead,
and, carrying her forth,
buried her by her husband.
11. And great fear
came upon all the Church,
and upon as many
as heard these things.

THERE IS NO WAY THAT THESE SO-CALLED DISCIPLES MADE IT INTO HEAVEN!

They just abandoned Lord Yeshua's most Fundamental Teachings, right there!

. MATTHEW 5:38-48.

38. "Ye have heard
that it hath been said,

'AN EYE FOR AN EYE,
AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.'


39. "But I Say unto you,

'THAT YE
RESIST NOT EVIL:
BUT WHOSOEVER
SHALL SMITE THEE
ON THY RIGHT CHEEK,
TURN TO HIM
THE OTHER ALSO.'


40. "And if any man
will sue thee at The Law,
and take away thy coat,
let him have (thy) cloke also.
41. "And whosoever shall compel thee
to go a mile,
go with him twain.
42. "Give to him
that asketh thee,
and from him that would borrow of thee
turn not thou away.
43. "Ye have heard
that it hath been said,

'THOU SHALT LOVE
THY NEIGHBOUR
AND HATE
THINE ENEMY.'


44. "But I Say unto you,

'LOVE YOUR ENEMIES,
BLESS THEM THAT
CURSE YOU,
DO GOOD TO THEM
THAT HATE YOU,
AND PRAY FOR THEM
WHICH DESPITEFULLY
USE YOU
AND PERSECUTE YOU.'


45. "That ye may be
the Children of your Father
Which is in Heaven:
for He maketh His Sun
to rise on the Evil
and on the Good,
and sendeth Rain
on the Just
and on the Unjust.
46. "For if ye love them
which love you,
what Reward have ye?
Do not even the Publicans
the same?
47. "And if ye salute
your Brethren only,
what do ye
more (than others)
Do not even
the Publicans so?
48. "Be ye therefore Perfect,
even as your Father
Which is in Heaven
is Perfect."

LORD YESHUA COMMANDED TO GIVE TO HIM THAT ASKETH.

He didn't put a TIME LIMIT on how much you gave.

The Disciples allegedly did.

Not only that, they even sentenced those who didn't bring what they thought they were due to death.



. MATTHEW 18:15-35.

15. "Moreover if thy Brother
shall trespass
against thee,
go and tell him his fault
between thee
and him alone:
if he shall hear thee,
thou hast gained thy Brother.
16. "But if he
will not hear thee,
then take with thee
one or two more,

'THAT IN THE MOUTH
OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES
EVERY WORD
MAY BE ESTABLISHED.'


17. "And if he shall neglect to hear them,
tell it unto the Church:
but if he neglect to hear the Church,
let him be unto thee
as an Heathen man
and a Publican.
18. "Verily I Say unto you,

'WHATSOEVER YE SHALL
BIND ON EARTH
SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN:
AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL
LOOSE ON EARTH
SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.'


19. "Again I Say unto you,

'THAT IF TWO OF YOU
SHALL AGREE ON EARTH
AS TOUCHING ANY THING
THAT THEY SHALL ASK,
IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM
OF MY FATHER
WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.'


20. "For where two or three
are gathered together
in my Name,
there am I
in the midst of them.

21 Then came Peter to him,
and said,

"Lord, how oft
shall my Brother
Sin against me,
and I forgive him?
Till seven times?""

22. Jesus Saith unto him,

"I Say not unto thee,

'UNTIL SEVEN TIMES:'

but,

'UNTIL SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN.'

23. "Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven
likened unto a certain king,
which would take account
of his servants.
24. "And when he had
begun to reckon,
one was brought unto him,
which owed him
ten thousand talents.
25. "But forasmuch
as he had not to pay,
his lord commanded him
to be sold,
and his wife,
and children,
and all that he had,
and payment to be made.
26. "The servant therefore
fell down
and worshipped him,
saying,

'LORD, HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


27. "Then the lord of that servant
was moved with compassion,
and loosed him,
and forgave him the debt.
28. "But the same servant
went out,
and found one of his fellowservants,
which owed him
an hundred pence:
and he laid hands on him,
and took him by the throat,
saying,

'PAY ME THAT THOU OWEST.'

29. "And his fellowservant fell down at his feet,
and besought him,
saying,

[b][i]'HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


30. "And he would not:
but went and cast hiinto Prison,
till he should pay the Debt.
31. "So when his fellowservants
saw what was done,
they were very sorry,
and came and told
unto their lord
all that was done.
32. "Then his lord,
after that he had called him,
said unto him,

'O THOU WICKED SERVANT,
I FORGAVE THEE ALL THAT DEBT,
BECAUSE THOU DESIREDST ME:
33. 'SHOULDEST NOT THOU
ALSO HAVE HAD COMPASSION
ON THY FELLOWSERVANT,
EVEN AS I HAD PITY ON THEE?'


34. "And his lord was wroth,
and delivered him to the Tormentors,
till he should pay all that was due unto him.
35. "So likewise shall my Heavenly Father
do also unto you,
if ye from your hearts
forgive not every one
his brother
their trespasses."

DIVINE PROSPERITY CANNOT POSSIBLY WORK, AND "DIVINE POVERTY" YIELDS NO SIGNIFICANT SPIRITUAL REWARD WHATSOEVER, WHEN THEY ARE NOT EXECUTED WITH FORGIVENESS AS ONE WANTS GOD TO FORGIVE THEM.

Foolish Christians think that God forgave their Sins, so that they could condemn and punish others for their perceived Sins!

Imagine some church leaders and members that have not been able to talk with God face to face as Moses was able to do, are yet saying that they cannot be poor because they don't serve a poor God.

So are they trying to tell us that Moses who was a poor man served a poor God?
Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by Nobody: 9:59am On Dec 04, 2019
The gospel of mammon teaches that "Poverty is a curse", and Moses who God used to do all those wonders in Egypt was a poor man.
Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by Nobody: 1:57pm On Dec 05, 2019
The gospel of mammon teaches that poverty was a choice, so did Moses who God used to bring water out of a rock for the children of Israel to drink choose poverty, because he was a poor man?
Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by Nobody: 1:48pm On Dec 06, 2019
Elijah and Moses the two men who stood with Jesus on the mount of transfiguration were both poor men while they were on Earth, and yet the gospel of mammon teaches that poverty was a curse.

The gospel of mammon is a curse to all those who preach and believe it.

Imagine some church leaders and members that have not been able to call down fire from heaven as the poor man called Elijah was able to do, are yet saying that they cannot be poor because they don't serve a poor God.

So are they trying to tell us that prophet Elijah who was abjectly poor served a poor God?

Was the God of Elisha who lived in abject poverty also a poor God?

Poverty among Prophets of those days was not a curse,but a choice based on the office of prophet most of them took oat of poverty, take the Jesuits for example.
Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by Nobody: 11:26am On Dec 09, 2019

The gospel of mammon also teaches that "Poverty is a choice", so according to the gospel Elijah who God used to provide for many poor people was not only cursed, but he also chose poverty because he was poor.

Really demonic gospel!
Elisha was an abjectly poor man like Elijah.

So Daniel the prophet didn't take this so-called oath of poverty you're talking about.

The extent you guys go to justify this demonic gospel is alarming.

The Truth is that it wasn't up to them to choose but God.

Thanks and God bless.

How about John the Baptist who lived in abject poverty, for those who say they can't be poor because their God is not a poor God? So was his God poor?

Someone has disowned Jesus and is now following John the Baptist.

If you could defend Jesus and His Words the way you do the gospel of mammon and her preachers, you'd be a great man of God.

Peter who Jesus appointed leader over His church was also a poor man:

Acts 3:6 (KJV)

6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
Re: Was The God Of The Poor Apostles And Prophets Of Old, A Poor God? by Nobody: 2:29pm On Dec 13, 2019
The gospel of mammon teaches that a rich man is blessed simply because of riches, regardless of how he made them, whether he had gotten them through illicit means, he is blessed.

Even if he likes let him be wicked and disobedient to God as the rich man in hell, it doesn't matter because he is blessed according to the gospel of mammon.

Luke 16:22-24 (KJV)

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

I spit on that demonic gospel from hell that has taken many there.
