Riches profit not in the day of wrath
To the glory of Almighty God, Proverbs 11:4 says, “Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.” May the Lord give us more grace to know the truth that will deliver us from the power of Satan. The word of God has never changed. It’s the same yesterday, today and forever.
In our nation today, people think they are born to be rich, born to rule, born to be the head and not the tail, born to be General Overseers and not to serve. They want to be bread winners at all cost and be addressed as the head of the family. They want to be called Billionaires, Millionaires. Even some parents, their target is to see their children become rich neglecting righteousness.
Because of these contaminated thoughts, many parents have sent their children to early grave. Many spiritual fathers, head of churches have sent their spiritual children to eternal destruction. Many CEOs of companies have traded the body and soul of members of their staff because of riches. A lot of banks have traded the souls of their female staff with the devil by sending them to rich men all in the name of meeting target.
These young ladies are employed and are instructed by their managers to search for customers such as oil companies, and other good organisations to bring large sum of money to the bank as deposit. Some of the people they will meet are drunkards, irresponsible human beings. What do you think will transpire between these bosses and these young ladies? Because of riches, these young ladies are pushed into ungodly acts.
In the day of wrath, I don’t think such banks will survive. Psalm 127:1, “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” In the 50s, 60s, 70s; young ladies were not sent to the rich men for businesses as people willingly deposit their money with the banks.
Many bank directors, CEOs have run into several spiritual problems because they trade people’s soul to enrich and sustain their riches. Where they can’t send their children to go get money, they send other people’s children. They are unfair to these ladies while been fair to their own children. Righteousness means to be fair but because of their unfairness, many rich men have fallen sick. Remember your riches profit not in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from sickness and death.
Nobody is against anyone’s riches, but you have to be fair. What you cannot do to your children, don’t do to other people’s children. If you obey this rule, the Lord will deliver you in times of trouble. If you want God to be fair to you, you must also be fair to all; including your driver. You must treat the security at the door just as you treat your own children.
If you want to be delivered during sickness, you must be fair to the maid employed in your kitchen and treat them the way you want your daughter to be treated. You have to be fair to all human beings. This is what’s called Righteousness. Don’t because of riches or what you want to become in life, be unfair. It’s only your fairness, which is your righteousness that can deliver you in the day of trouble.
I leave you in the hand of God. Till next week again, Jesus is Lord.
