Ecclesiastes 9:18; I Timothy 6:9-10; II Peter 2:1-3
Just why are some people apathetic and irreverent toward the things of My Kingdom?
Because they’ve been burnt by religious racketeers.
Just as Esau sold his inheritance for a mess (meal) of pottage, many reprobates who once had a pure beginning with Me are exchanging their eternal reward for a big mess of money. There’s big dollars to be made from religious shows which are promoted as the miracle ministry of Christ Jesus.
I abhor all the trickery which goes on in My Name, all the deception, all the hurts suffered by emotionally vulnerable people who desperately need supernatural help to fix unfixable problems. Clever devils that they are, charlatans hurt wounded souls further by stringing them along with flashy mail-outs which promise the miracle is “about to come”, but they need to keep on sowing, for “those who sow in tears shall reap in joy”.
Sowing always means money, of course. Bogus miracle ministries ask for your prayers, but that’s just a smokescreen. Getting you to sow some money seed is their only priority. They suggest that if I didn’t reward you for the last donation, I’ll surely pour out My blessing on you if only you’ll send in the next.
Surprisingly, a lot of religious racketeers had a very good beginning with Me. But such people failed to be sober and vigilant, on guard against the lure of false riches which drowns a soul in perdition. Usually they get drawn into this shady life of fishing for funds little by little, until they forget their first love for Christ altogether and come to believe they’re really entitled to poor people’s money. One of their favorite excuses is this misapplied Scripture: The wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just (Proverbs 13:22).
But those evildoers are without excuse. Because of the unholy picture they have painted of a Holy God, they will soon be stripped of their wealth and prestige. I can see them even now from My perspective in eternity, writhing in front of church altars, begging Me to forgive them and take them up to heaven, longing to be with saints who kept themselves from idolatry and remained connected to Christ through faith.
I also see the thousands who fell away from Jesus because of their evil example. Many are the lost sheep and backsliders who got so disillusioned and embittered by being duped that they turned their backs on Christ altogether and were left behind to suffer the Tribulation Period. Many will curse those corrupt crooks who hindered them from knowing Christ as Savior; those stumbling blocks who blinded them to the goodness of Christ; profane scoundrels who twisted My Word in order to cash in on the desperation and misplaced trust of these naive, hurting people.
What an awful mess those wicked racketeers will have made for themselves, selling their precious relationship with their Lord for a mess of money.
Because they so eagerly devoured lost lambs hungry to find deliverance in Christ Jesus, they’ll be left behind to reap the evil they have sown. They shall eat the fruit of their own doings, and it shall be bitterness to their ruined souls.
