THE RICHER YOU GET , THE MORE IMMUNE YOUR ARE TO THE END TIMES
THE ANTICHRIST PROSPERITY GOSPEL
The Pew Research Group did a holistic survey of Religion in Africa .Among the many questions that were asked was the issue of the second coming of Jesus Christ.It was interesting to note that countries that are growing economically had a lower expectation of his return happening in their lifetime.
When one looks at the Christan list, one sees that war ravaged Congo is leading in believing that Jesus will return in their lifetime.
The somewhat averagely fair expectancy of Jesus return should have be attributed to the False Pre tribulation Rapture or Fly away doctrine.The Bible is clear that Christians will see the Antichrist rule and be persecuted by it before Jesus comes. First, the revelation of the Antichrist then the revelation of Jesus Christ…2 Thess 2
Oil Rich countries like Nigeria and Ghana and also Southern African countries seem not to be so concerned,though there is a considerable number that is expectant.
What this proves is how prosperity is a sure killer of one’s faith in the Lord Jesus.
PROSPERITY GOSPEL KILLS THE TRUE GOSPEL OF SALVATION AND SANCTIFICATION
The Prosperity Gospel is as old as the sun in the book of Deuteronomy we see how the Lord warns Israel of the dangers of prosperity and how it sways one away from God.
PROSPERITY = PRIDE = SELF IDOLATRY
When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;
And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
PROSPERITY = PRIDE = IDOLATRY = SIN …. THE PROSPERITY CYCLE/SPIRITUAL POVERTY CYCLE
This cycle has occurred in the Western World where after being very rich and developed they got so proud that they forgot God and started worshiping their gods of self, entertainment, technology and many other gods and now spiritual poverty to the point of rejecting Jesus and his second coming.
Now Pew Research has proved that the same thing is happening in Africa especially rich countries or Oil rich mineral rich countries.
Countries like Kenya and Nigeria while hosting MTV Awards prove to all that Western civilization is the order of the day , a civilization that glorifies wealth as security and not God.
The issue is many people love money more than God that everything they do is about money.Their prayers are financial, therefore their sermons are financial.
Their dreams are financial therefore they make friends on financial terms.
Their thoughts are financial therefore they serve God on financial terms.
Blessings are only deemed financial therefore a financially stable country is a blessed country .One wonders whether such an one has read Rev 18 where God destroys the rich nations and cities of the world .That scripture clearly shows how ungodly gain is abominable to the Lord.
Jesus has warned us that in these last days we should not be drunken by the riches of the world nor by the worries that we do not have riches .
Let us daily walk away from the Prosperity Gospel which is bound to crash with the coming global economic and social collapse and stand in the true faith that seeks first and earnestly waits for the Kingdom of God loving God by keeping his commandments and his word.
