Being Kingdom Minded

Are We Exercising Greed Or Faith

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1Peter 2:9-10 NIV).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: NEW MESSAGES FROM THE LORD CAN BE FOUND ON THE 'LATEST PROPHECIES" TAB. Brethren, please be informed that our 'Mark of the Beast' article will be updated as frequently as the Lord reveals something. Because of the importance of the mark of the beast message, we will create a separate tab so that you can easily access it. We did receive an update from the Lord which we shared below but update later on that article. 

Mark of the Beast Revealed Message given to Brother Glenn (July 8, 2020).

In a vision message,  the Lord drew my attention to a news article with the following heading, "The Anti-Christ denounces Christians". Indeed, if he will vilify the Lord and blasphemy the Prince of Peace, surely Christians will not escape his attacks! (Daniel 11:36). 

It is a fact, some Christians despise these types of articles and they don’t like to hear that hardship is looming! However, the true discerning will take heed and takes refuge in the Lord. Just on this website alone and besides what you may have heard or read elsewhere, Christians have been thoroughly warned about being worldly-minded. The Bible says that we should set our minds on things above where Christ is seated (Colossians 3:1) and through our conduct, lifestyles, and attitudes we are storing up treasures for eternity (Matthew 6:19-20). Brethren, let us truly take our salvation very seriously. If scripture regards us as pilgrims that are passing through this world (1 Peter 2:11-12), why are we still conforming to worldly standards in our conduct and appetite for riches? (Romans 12:2).

Are we being driven by greed or a lack of faith? By greed, we mean a desire for more than what we really need (Philippians 4:11-13) or by our lack of faith by not trusting God for our daily bread or provisions (Matthew 6:34). I need to stress though that we are not implying that a Christian should be a beggar, God forbids (Philippians 4:19) the point we are emphasizing here is to encourage Christians to guard against the spirit of greed and needless request. Thus, God will provide for our needs [if we have enough faith to trust Him] and not when we desire the things others have (Philippians 2:3).

Furthermore, the Lord Himself gave us some powerful visions exposing the false prosperity doctrine which has scriptural reference (1 John 2:15-17; Luke 8:14) and yet you still find Christians following those who promise them that God will make them millionaires. If you can identify with the above my dear brother or sister, then frankly your heart is set on the wrong treasure!

Useless Treasures

Additionally, throughout the Old Testament we read how King David, King Solomon and others poured treasures into the holy Temple of the Lord (2 Samuel 8:11; 1 Kings 7:48-51), as precious as gold is yet when the Israelites disobeyed the Lord those treasures became worthless and God allowed King Nebuchadnezzar to destroy the temple and carry the temple treasures to Babylon (Jeremiah 52:13-19). What are we learning from this? The Israelites regarded the temple and its treasuries as the most precious and indeed it was since the glorious covenant box of the Almighty God dwelt in there. But were their hearts on the Presence of God? NO! They boasted about the temple and its treasuries (1 Kings 9:8). The Bible says, God is jealous and He does not tolerate rivalry (Exodus 34:14) and if worldly things causes such rivalry He will have it removed as we have seen above. We should also not fail to mention that stumbling blocks to our faith should be avoided because eternal life is more precious than anything this world could offer (Matthew 5:29).

Strive To Be Debt Free

Brethren, the Lord spoke to me a few weeks ago to warn Christians about the addiction of debt and its consequences. In emphasize and more especially the times we living in today, countless people will default unable to repay their debts and many will face foreclosures and repossession of things. Therefore, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ if you have a big house and you still owe years of bond or mortgage, consider to sell, settle your debt and buy a smaller property. Likewise, if you own an expensive car, consider downgrading to a cheaper and least expensive model use the other funds to settle debts this will save you the embarrassment and this crisis as we previously warned is leading us to the mark of the beast and those trapped in debt will not escape! The bible says “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty” (Proverbs 22:3).

In conclusion, the Bible says that we are pilgrims passing through this world (1 Peter 2:11-12) and if we have been elected to possess Heaven then we ought to be caring, sharing and Heavenly minded Christians who does not fear want, hunger or death (Romans 8:38-39; Hebrews 11:13).

To accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.
