THE DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES


A
fter the creation of man, God put him in the Garden of Eden. Man did not suffer to eat. But with the fall of man, he traded his dominion with frivolous vanities (Gen.3: 6-7). Could you consider the vanity of human ambition in the face of death – Man actually died (Gen. 2:17). Satan inspired an unholy ambition into man to try to become what he is not (Gen.3:4-5). The end result is that man lost out (everything). And unto Adam he said … cursed is the ground for thy sake: in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life (Gen.3:17).
          The former king and ruler of planet earth, who exercised dominion over all life forms on the planet (Gen.1:27-28), thereafter became a slave in his own domain. Common creatures as little as mosquito, constitute great nuisance in their crusade against man. Isaiah had it to say: For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money (Isa.52:3). Isaiah prophesied about the coming of the redeemer. Those enlightened by the Word of God shall be delivered from prevalent “rat race” that satan had plunged the entire humanity into – In an attempt to make ends meet, an insatiable desire (covetousness) becomes inherent in man. Satan who is the chief engineer and architect of this, tightens all corners and leaves the notion that no one can make it in life except he/she bows down to satan. It is imperative to note that our cerebrities and most of the top class of our world have bowed down to satan and hence sold their souls to the devil for fame and riches. Satan even had the effrontery to tempt the creator of the world and entire universe – The Lord Jesus Christ. And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will, I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine (Luk.4:5-7). Who delivered this world into the hands of satan? It was our first parents, Adam and Eve. So, death was passed unto every man (Rom.5:12, 1 Cor.15:21-22). Satan said, “To whosoever I will, I give it”. But there is a condition attached to it. One must bow down to satan (Matt.4:9) and worship him. By doing so, one exchanges life for death. This is why the people in power in our world are Satanists, sadists and evil men. Therefore what do you think is the hope and future of this world with this evil system in power? See Prov.29:2. The world will end with satan. But our Redeemer – The Lord Jesus Christ came that all those who believe in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life (Jn.3:16; 10:10).
          When you set a trap for an animal, you use what the animal likes most, which it cannot resist as bait. Jesus said: For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth (Luk.21:35). A snare is situation which seems very attractive, but is actually unpleasant and difficult to avoid or escape from when one is already in. What could be this worldwide snare that satan has set, from which escape is very difficult? The Lord of life has the principles of life to offer through his Word so that we shall be worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass (Luk.21:36). 22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you – Luk.12:22-28,31. When you seek the kingdom of God, God does not fail to meet you at the point of your need. Jesus shines the light of his word into our hearts to remove our hearts from the evil in this world. See Jn.17:14-17. One cannot serve God and mammon (Money – Mat.6:24-25). 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows (1Tim.6:6-10).
          All evil committed in this world are traceable to the love of money alias covetousness. As Jesus throws the light of his Word, his sheep hear his voice (Jn.10:27-28). But how many are they that hear his voice today? For many are called but few are chosen (Mat.22:14). On the contrary, satan deceives the people with a show of affluence and hence have their minds effectively blinded, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ should shine unto them (2 Cor.4:3-4). This is why there is prevalence of prosperity messages even among evangelical churches – satan is already in the garden again – 2 Cor.11:3.
          Jesus explained in Mat.13:22 that those who received the seed among thorns are those that hear the Word of God; but the care of this world (an endeavour to make ends meet), and the deceitfulness of riches, choked the word, and they become unfruitful. This satanic influence for people to bow down to the devil is the deceitfulness of riches. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares (Luk.21:34). Remember that they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. Thus, for the people that are mad after prosperity, destruction and perdition are coming.
          1 Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world: 6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; 7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: 11  Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish (Ps.49:1,6-7,11-12).  As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool (Jer.17:11).  And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth (Luk.12:15).  Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? – Isa.29:15. Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity (Ps.94:8-11).
          Most of our cerebrated rich men are evil and corrupt men. They think they can get away with it. But though hand join hand, no sinner will go unpunished (Prov.11:21; 16:5). Therefore God has reserved a visitation against these evil rich men. The devil that they bowed to, for riches and or fame, etc, will rope their bowed heads in chains of misery and regrets. There is a prophecy in the fifth chapter of James against these rich men. 1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.
5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you (Jas.5:1-6). In the judgment that is coming, rich men will weep and howl for the miseries that shall come on them. Verse 2 explains that this will be so because their riches are corrupted. Why do people indulge in corruption and vile practices? It is to amass wealth. Many will die of heart failure when they see that all their riches are not just worthless, but altogether, weigh lighter than vanity. Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth (Luk.21:26). Verse 4 reveals that our fields are kept back (undeveloped) because of fraud. The workers are suffering. Therefore the cries of the people have entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. Thus the Lord has allowed a progressive decay in the financial system of the world – Your gold and silver (money) is cankered – verse 3.
       
    A British writer and economist warned a movement from world currencies into gold is inevitable if or unless recession and inflation are not corrected soon, leaving no alternatives! Let us take one quote from an editorial concerning past events which allowed a takeover – By August 1922, Germany’s money supply stood at 252 billion marks. In January 1923, it was 2 trillion. In September 1923, it was 28 quadrillion. And in November 1923, it reached 497 quintillion – that is 497 followed by 18 zeros. This runaway inflation of the money supply stopped, finally, when the currency became virtually worthless. Its stated value worth literally less than the cost of the paper it was printed on! The old mark was replaced in 1924 with a new Reichsmark. The old marks were withdrawn from circulation and ceased to be legal tender. With these events, Adolph Hitler rose to power. If you watch the economy of the world, something similar is about to happen. The global economic recession and inflation are the rust prophesied by James that will eat up the treasures heaped by the rich. In the middle of 1970s, my father built a house with five hundred naira. Today what is the cost of building a similar house? – Some millions; is many zeros attached to money. Inflation has gone up more than one million percent.
          If you are a rich man and worth several trillion naira, dollars, euro or whatever currency, you don’t have them in your pocket. It is either in cash or property. Hmm! So easy for the government to confiscate. Those trillions are just papers backed by nothing. Prof. Charles Soludo attempted to revalue our currency; but the rich rallied behind the senate and stopped him. But unknown to many is that something is brewing underneath; this time around worldwide.
          Many point out correctly that the stock market crash which began the great depression was in 1929. Actually, the worst year for the stock market during the great depression was in 1931. In 1931, a solar eclipse took place on September 12 – The Jewish Feast of Trumpet. Eight days after September 12, England abandoned the gold standard, setting off market crashes and bank failures around the world.      
   We witnessed another solar eclipse on September 13, 2015, which was also the Jewish day for the Feast of Trumpets. Is the Trumpet already sounding spiritually? – That is for the people that have spiritual ears. The Bible says that the past is the future; meaning you can see the future from the past (Eccl.1:9-10). With this solar eclipse on the Feast of Trumpets, the heaven could be informing the earth that another great depression is coming. Look at the world’s financial condition since September, 2015. As a matter of fact, our naira is in a serious mess. Prophecy has it that a collapse is coming. As Hitler rose to power, a global figure (antichrist) is around and about to rise with these events.
           And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth (Gen.47:15). A similar trend occurred in the Bible – Money actually failed. And God requires the past to repeat (Eccl.3:15). Joseph and Pharaoh were good in Bible days. In the judgment that is coming, an evil Joseph (in America) and an evil Pharaoh (in Rome who will later move to Israel) will rise up. Jesus warned us to pray that we shall be accounted worth to escape all these things that shall come to past.
          With the current challenges facing the world, all nations have signed up to Agenda 21 for sustainable development. During the UN 70th General Assembly, it was modified to Agenda 2030 for planetary unity - A Blueprint For A United World. On September 20th, 2015, the United Nations launched a set of 17 ambitious goals that it plans to achieve over the next 15 years. The formal name of this plan is ‘The 2030 Agenda’. But those behind it decided that they needed something catchier when promoting these ideas to the general population. The UN has stated that these new “Global Goals” represent a “New Universal Agenda” for humanity. With the full implementation of this ‘Agenda’, all lands, properties, weapons and ammunitions will belong to the global figure (antichrist) in the name of peace. So much so that at the end, the Bible asked who is able to make war with him (Rev.13:4). The people will be marked (biochiped for commerce and identification) to become citizens of the earth.    
  Those that refuse (The Jews and Christians) will not be able to buy or sell (Rev.13:16-17); neither can they function in any way. They will be termed enemy of peace and state. They will be tortured and killed. The best way to describe this ‘Agenda’ is communist system of government. The global elites experimented it in Russia and saw that it will work. Note that Russia was not a communist country before.
          Albert Pike was the leader of the North American Freemasonry movement, and de facto the global leader of the drive to achieve the New World Order. Albert Pike received a demonic vision. On January 22, 1870, Pike and one of his co-conspirators, Guiseppe Mazzini, published the plan which would establish the New World Order. This plan was kept very secret, only within Freemasonry circles since the time of its inception, known only to the fellow occult illuminist conspirators.  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders (2 Thess.2:9). No wonder why satan revealed his plans or his workings to his people. This secret plan to control the world foresaw the need for three world wars. Stop here for a moment to remember the date of this prediction: January 22, 1870. This date is 44 years before the beginning of World War 1. Once you understand the facts we are sharing with you and realize the length of time between this prediction and the beginning of its fulfillment, you can understand how spiritual forces were truly in command – The working of satan.
          Pike plan to overthrow the Judeo-Christian Old World Order, and establish the satanic New World Order, foresaw the need for war. However, this war was not the type of warfare the world had seen historically. This war was to be on a much larger scale than history had ever recorded. This war was to be global or worldwide. The details of this Pike plan for the three world wars to establish the New World Order are:
1.    The First World War was designed to enable the Czarist Government in Russia to be finally and completely overthrown. The new Russian government was foreseen to be atheistic and militaristic. Furthermore, Pike specified that this new Russian Government was to be communistic. Karl Marx had published his Communist Manifesto in 1848, exactly 22 years before this occultic prophecy through Albert Pike. History records that this First World War did indeed occur just as listed. The Western powers in Europe, in conjunction with the United States, financed Lenin’s expedition into Russia. They financed his government consistently. Even America have financed Russian communism at least once per decade since then, just to keep it afloat.
2.    The second World War was foreseen to originate between Great Britain and Germany. However, one of the planned results of this war was to strengthen the new communist Russian government, so that it could weaken and destroy other governments and religions. History again recorded that the World War 2 did indeed accomplish this objective. The war started when Germany invaded Poland, causing Great Britain to declare to declare war on Germany. Certainly, the Pike vision of the second World War building Russian communism into a super power was fulfilled to a startling degree. Historians have always been mystified as to how Churchill and Roosevelt ceded all of Eastern Europe to Russia. The communist government of Russia then known as the U.S.S.R. (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) completed its transition to a super power exactly as Pike’s vision had foretold. Let us not forget that the second World War had given Russia capabilities it had not possessed before the war. Not only was Russian military built to a frightful degree; entire factories were built by the West, East of Moscow that gave Russia an instant manufacturing base. Even though Russia had paid dearly in human lives during the war, they came out of the conflict a global super power. Thanks to Roosevelt, Russia then had a kingdom to go along with its new military and industrial base. You will never read this true history in many of the books.
3.    The third World War was foreseen to be between Judaism (including Christianity) and Islam. This prophecy is incredible in many ways, beginning with the understanding that this prophecy occurred in 1870, a time when Israel did not exist as a nation; and when no one except fundamental Bible believers believed it would ever exist again. It is not by accident that we are having our own share of ‘ISIS’ – ‘Boko Haram’. Watch the events in Israel and the entire Middle East carefully. This is because the final chapter of history is being written there. The demonic ‘guiding spirits’ of Freemason, and the leaders of the New World Order plan are brewing something underneath. At the end, blood will flow for a thousand and six hundred furlongs (about 200 miles), even unto the horse bridles (about 5 feet high) – Rev.14:20.
But before this, Jesus will rapture his saints to be with him and escape the judgments being poured on the earth (Rev.3:11, Jn.14:1-3, 1 Thess.4:16-17). That tells you how close rapture is.
          Russia was not atheist before. They had sound Christian background. Russia was predominantly saturated with Orthodox Church backed by the Czarist government. According to Wikipedia, the Russian Orthodox Church was traditionally said to have been founded by the Apostle Andrew, who is thought to have visited Scythia and Greek colonies along the Northern coast of the Black Sea.
          In 1914 in Russia, there were 55,173 Orthodox Churches, 29,593 Chapels, 112,629 Priests and Deacons, etc. The year 1917 was a major turning point for the history of Russia, and the Russian Orthodox Church. The Russian empire was dissolved and the Czarist government – which had granted numerous privileges to the Church – was overthrown. Thus the Russian Orthodox Church found itself without official state backing for the first time in its history. After a few months of political turmoil, the Bolsheviks took power in October 1917 and declared a separation of Church and State. The government seized all Church lands and properties. The eventual Soviet Union was the first State to have as an ideological objective, the elimination of religion. Toward that end, the communist regime confiscated Church properties, ridiculed religion, harassed believers, and propagated atheism in the schools. Thus, terrible persecution arose against Christians in Russia. Some actions against Orthodox Priests and believers along with execution included torture, being sent to prison camps and or labour camps or also subjected to psychological punishment or torture and mind control experimentation, in order to force them to give up their religious convictions. Thousands of Churches were taken over by the government and either destroyed or used as warehouses, recreation centres, museums of atheism, etc. it was impossible to build new Churches. They practiced and prospered (Dan.8:2).
          This story of Russia is a pathetic one because this Russian experimentation is about to be implemented globally in their planned Agenda 21. They are promising a Socialist Utopia through sustainable developments. The people of the world will pay dearly by surrendering their freedom and rights. For all these sponsored terrorism and security challenges, the people of the world may not regret these losses initially. But with the full implementation of Agenda 2030 for planetary unity, the rich will weep and howl for the misery that will come upon them as prophesied by James. They will see all the wealth they have heaped, taken over in one day. The poor may be indifferent or even happy with the introduction of a classless society. Such distinctions of wealth, income, education, culture or social network might arise and would only be determined by individual experience and achievement in such a society. Various means are to be employed to maintain this classless society and attach varying degrees of importance to these distinctions as end in their overall programs/philosophy.
            With the rise of this new system, what shall it profit you Christian that is offering a ‘lip-service’ to God for a quest of material possessions, when you are soon to lose all? The Bible admonishes us: And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But godliness with contentment is great gain (ITim.6:8,6).
          The horrible persecution of Christians in Russia is a sobering reminder of the prophecy of Daniel:  And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (Dan.7:25). If you cannot serve God acceptably (Heb.12:28-29) now that we have freedom, is it when a total persecution is declared against believers of Christ that you will serve him?  for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be (Mat.24:21). The love of money or the deceitfulness of riches has blinded most Christians that many are ignorant of this last outpouring of the latter rain that is currently preparing people for rapture. No wonder Jesus said: Nevertheless when the son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth (Luk.18:8b). Majority of Christians are in delusion and will miss the imminent rapture. Rapture is the only way God is making for his people to escape the Great Tribulation. As majority of Christians miss rapture, they will pass through the Great Tribulation. Their number is like the sand of the sea.  After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 and cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 14… And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb (Rev.7:9-10,14).
This message is coming to you as a timely warning. You can request for our tract: “How to escape the Great Tribulation”. Do not be among the seed that fell among thorns. Your eternal destiny is in your hand. Do not play with it. Money and all what money can do end in this life. Life is so short. It is like flower that appears so beautiful in the morning; but when the sun is up, it fades away. Jesus is coming soon. The spirit of antichrist has virtually taken over everything. It is not by coincidence that we are witnessing strange policies in the economy, government and all sectors of the society. You be the judge that most of these foreign policies have done us more harm than good. Catastrophe is ahead. God wants you to escape that is why he made your path to cross with ours.
          If you’re not born again, please know that we are living in the final hours of the age. Opportunity to be born again will soon flip away. Then people will look for it with tears; but then it will be too late. How can we escape, if we neglect so great salvation: which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him (Heb.2:3). …Behold, now is the accepted time, behold now is the day of salvation (2 Cor.6:2b).
          May the Lord richly bless you as you give your life to Jesus. We love you so much!
