In this perilous time many are into grabbing of something that would satisfy their longings and very needs. Through this the enemy got a chance to use any possible means to enslave these people even by using God’s words to deceive them. Even the “Gospel” has a warning of the presence of these people. It could be very dangerous if the evil has been using the gospel, twisted the truth, laid before you and accepted it. Haven’t you even felt betrayed by your own people in the church? Haven’t you not ask and seek the Holy Spirit to lead the truth by yourself and see how huge it is? Or see how huge you have been deceive by the evil?
Jesus has been constantly preaching the people , telling them through a parables which is very useful to be understood by a genuine seekers of the truth. Here’s one; the parable of a farmer who went out to sow his seeds:
“That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.” Matthew 13:1-9 NIV
THE SEED FELL AMONG THE THORNS: WORRIES, DECEITFULNESS OF WEALTH
The farmer had scattered his seeds in four corners: along the path, on the rocky places, among thorns and some fell on good soil. You know for sure what happened to all those seeds. The first three seeds were all been subject to the devil’s manipulations and never been rooted the gospel in the hearts of man. Blessed are the hearts who represents the good soil for the gospel was truly been accepted nurtured and grown deeper in ones heart. The focus of this study is in the seed falling among the thorns and how the WORRIES, DECEITFULNESS OF WEALTH had choked anyone theses days.
“The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.” Matthew 13:22 NIV
As the days, years are moving fast so as the WORRIES that go with it. In man’s life it is evolving everyday as planned by the “devil” enemy. You cannot bear to see how poverty, lawlessness, hazardous, toxic foods and corrupt life governing entities are so completely at work in a huge scale. All these are CHOKING the WORD OF GOD from the HEARTS of ANYONE and MADE IT UNFRUITFUL! This is the reality in the world right now ,and Jesus showed the Way how His Words been choked by satan in the hearts of man. Worries in life caused you to be choked, could make anyone unable to speak, lead one to just submit to the control of a strong force
“Choking occurs when a piece of food, an object, or a liquid blocks the throat. Children often choke as a result of placing foreign objects into their mouths. Adults can choke from breathing in fumes or eating or drinking too rapidly. A person who’s choking may display an inability to:
1. speak, 2 cough, 3. make noise, 4. breathe”. https://www.healthline.com/health/choking-adult-or-child-over-1-year
The DECEITFULNESS OF WEALTH becomes a way offered by satan to man in answer in all of his worries. Wealth brought power, and worldly satisfaction but caused one to be suffocated. All these block your heart, enables you to choose what to throw away or allow to stay in your life. Satan deceives anyone by offering the wealth of this world as what he did to Jesus. Ephesians 4:27 “Do not give the devil an opportunity”. you need to choose what to take in for you cannot serve both together in your life : “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Matthew 6:21, 24 NIV
THE DECEPTION OF PROSPERITY GOSPEL
In this end times a lot are proclaiming the gospel for self gain. Getting into a thing to get something even if compromising their faith and the Word of God. The prosperity gospel is a gospel of self, instead of having Jesus as the center of it, the individual self was in focus. Individuals works, abilities and gifts were highlighted. Being rich is not a sin , but there are churches, preachers who links financial security to their moral values and stability of relationship with God. Jesus did not come to Earth and die on the cross for you to have financial stability, get a high paying job, earn millions of money and got all your dreams come true. Jesus died on the Cross to save you and pay the price of your sin and transgression. Prosperity is not a measure of ones relationship with God, as in the same way that poverty also is not a measure of how miserable your relationship with God. This is the deception of the enemy, to keep you away from the Truth of the Gospel.
A lot of churches evolving now a days with a huge followers and fundings, who are infiltrated by the beastly system to propagate their evil agendas of destroying the essence of Christianity. It’s true God is the giver of wealth, and their are supporting principles in this idea of God’s way of acquiring wealth. Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” God supplying all your need doesn’t mean you will have huge money account in the bank, own a car and house, you will live so much in material things while serving Him. Getting pity to those in poverty while serving the Lord as if not been blessed like you. Remember even the enemy “satan” the god of this world can give and deceived you with worldly wealth, don’t be confused on taking it as a blessings from God. Relationship with God doesn’t based on WHAT He gives you but rather on WHO God is. Worship God not of all the stuff, material things He gives you but because He is God Almighty who deserves to be praised, exalted and adored.
The center of this gospel is not money, not having cars, not casting out the spirit of poverty, but the very core of the gospel is JESUS CHRIST, GOD can give you prosperity even without Sending Jesus on Earth like the faithful fathers in the Old Testament, HE KNOWS HOW TO GIVE GIFTS TO A WORTHY SERVANT, but the message of the gospel is the birth and death of Jesus is to give you an access, connection to the living God and to have Eternal life. The gospel is a message of Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ: that talks of the love of Christ for the people, the death of Christ and how one given eternal life. It is a good news of how Christ saves one from death and the condemnation of sin. These truths are what satan enabling to destroy but cannot. Twisting the message of the Gospel to prosperity to control anyone’s heart. The god of money is a new god of this world. The god of money is the people’s gods. For what matters to God’s Kingdom is only RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT:
“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval.” Romans 14:17-18 NIV
When the seeds were scattered by the farmers pray it fell not among the thorns of your heart for the enemy not to get hold of you. The worries in life and the deception of wealth made by the minions of satan are so huge that these could really choke anyone who are not ready and faithless. Don’t be confuse with the lies of lustful desires , wants, needs and prosperity but be discerning. Dissect only the truths of the Word of God . Nothing can ever change the Truth of the Gospel. It’s all about Jesus! Not your worries, skills, gifts, wealth and self. May the seed “God’s Word” fell on good soil in your heart. Produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.! And make you a warrior who has worn the ARMOR BOOTS …GOSPEL OF PEACE. Keep moving… making the enemy “satan” choke his own lies!
“and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.” Ephesians 6:15 NIV
“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:27 NIV
