—God’s Word instructs us to RUN from any counterfeit who equates money with knowing and being blessed by God (1 Timothy 6:3-5 KJB). Such a person is not saved. They have not truly repented and therefore are still serving self and therefore money instead of Christ (Matthew 6:19-24). This includes the Joel Osteen idolaters and all Word of Faith wolves and their gullible, greedy, counterfeit followers. Luke 12:15-21
“Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” James 2:5
If being rich in this life is godly, why didn’t Jesus and His apostles choose to be rich in this world?
Jesus says that “a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of things he possesses.” (Luke 12:15) God looks at how rich we are toward Him. Read Luke 12 and 16 closely and prayerfully and you will be vastly educated in the King’s criteria.
If money makes the man or ministry, the Son of God is indicted as a fraud.
Many are being told that Jesus was a rich man while on earth. Is that biblical?
WHILE on this earth that He created, Jesus had no vehicle (Luke 19:28-35), had nowhere to lay His beautiful head (Luke 9:58), and had very little money in His pocket or account (Luke 17:24-27).
Any questions? Beware of the Word of Faith beguilers who teach the lie that Jesus was rich while on earth to justify their greed and covetousness (2 Peter 2:1-3). Learn the above verses and share them with those who have been misled by the greed mongers to believe that Jesus was rich in His earthly life.
What does it reveal to us that Jesus chose not to be rich in His earthly life? It proves that the Gospel can be spread with little money although money certainly is a tool, this is a rebuke to those who overemphasize money. They overemphasize money in order to justify their own greed, which makes them idolaters and unfit to enter the kingdom of Heaven.
To teach that Jesus was rich in His earthly life is a technique, a strategy or scam perpetrated by those who want to make merchandise of the gullible (biblically illiterate).
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3
The Word of Faith wolves are teaching that Jesus was rich on earth to justify being rich by fleecing the flock for their own lavish greed and wealth (2 Peter 2:1-3). Wolves teach that Jesus was rich in His life on earth in order to justify their own lavish riches and to dangle the carrot of enticement to the covetous, greedy-hearted masses.

According to Jesus, greedy hoarders are idolaters and as sure for hell as if they were already there.
“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God (eternal judgment) upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.” Ephesians 5:5-7
Is having a car sin? No. Yet, “excess” is sin in the eyes of a holy God and clearly demonstrates that one is not laying down his life in this fleeting world.
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.” Matthew 23:25
Compare your life with the earliest believers whom when the LORD saved them, they liquidated and gave to those Christians in need.
Jesus and His apostles often warned against the many dangers of coveting earthly riches. Here’s a mere sampling:
“And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! 24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. ” Mark 10:23-25
“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. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” 1 Timothy 6:6-11
