Abraham wealth and twisted lies by Pastors Vs Jesus
first, a few scriptures you should no about. They are:
Genesis 17:4, "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, And you will be the father of a multitude of nations. 5 ."No longer shall your name be called Abram, But your name shall be Abraham; For I will make you the father of a multitude of nations. 6. "I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings will come forth from you.
Genesis 24:35 "The LORD has greatly blessed my master, so that he has become rich; and He has given him flocks and herds, and silver and gold, and servants and maids, and camels and donkeys.
According to the bible Abraham was a wealthy and trader and herdsman - the journey he made followed an ancient trade route. But what most don't no or your pastor don't no is that Abraham got his wealth from from both his family line and his ability to be a great trader. Abraham had male and female servants or people employed to work for him.
Above we see that Abraham traded with others of wealth and not so wealthy or maybe even the less to help others provide for himself and his band. Trading was big business all over the land and civilization of that time.
Pastors will tell you, you have to give and obey God just as Abraham did when he was willing to sacrifice his son Isaac because God told him to kill Isaac to show faith in him. Abraham indeed was going to show God how much he love him as he was ready to kill Isaac but was stop by God and given a ram instead. He was blessed afterward as being a man after God's own heart.
Although Abraham was blessed, it is not like God gave him a gold mine or a thousand dollar bill every time he gave. He was blessed because God saw favor in him because of the type man he was. These blessing came as Abraham did the right thing by people. God was not forcing anything on Abraham. Abraham had to show God he was worthy of God's blessing just as we should show God in our everyday lives of how we treat each other thus pleasing God.
Abraham had the spirit of God in him. He wanted to please God. To do this he had to be intelligent enough to want things, to help others, to no how to handle his business and or trade his goods to meet his needs and the needs of his servants and flocks. He knew he must go to work. He was blessed by his own wits of treating others fair. One might say he was blessed by God and this is true but then again every things and everybody is also blessed by God and it is up to us to increase that blessing or let it stay like it is.
Abraham chose to follow God. So in all things he became blessed and his wealth grew. Not because God was blessing him without him doing something to deserve them, but because Abraham created a means for God's blessing to take place. He was a trader of goods in camels, donkeys, cattle, gold,sliver and other flocks.
Let me clear something up right here. I believe there are two kinds of blessing we see in Abraham. First and most important is the blessing to be in favor of God. To be blessed! That is, believing that God will secure our souls when we die. This is the ultimate blessing to be blessed with.
But this blessing does not come with out a price. The price is turning your life toward God and serving him by doing those things that please him. It mean forsaken friends that want to drag you into their world, into their kind of worldly thinking and acting. However, with this blessing you can lose out on salvation because it is choice. The choice is yours.
The second kind of blessing is when you acheive by the sweat of your brow, so to speak. In other words, wanting to have more. To improve your life through thoughts of succeeding through trial and error until the possible become, well, possible!
You can have the first blessing with out the second. Many die poor and or satisfied with just where they are. Salvation is not for the middle class, the wealthy nor the rich.
So, from this we see that Abraham main blessing or that he was blessed fall in the first category of blessing. Obedience to God. The heart of true love toward the creator. The other came by Abraham's own will and desire to have and become more that just a survivor.
Pastors turn and twist this story of Abraham and confuse their listeners in believing God gave Abraham wealth because he was obedience to him. Not true! Abraham was, so called, blessed with salvation, eternal life after death. The other came by his own hands.
Now listen to this. The spirit of God does not make one stupid, lazy, defiance, uncaring, not wanting, unhelpful, stingy, spiteful, hateful, nasty mouth, ruthless, liars, stealers, cunning, greedy, selfish, unruly, nor ignorant of the word of God but just the opposite. Yet, many claiming to be Christians today poses's many if not all of these.
So what have we learned. We learned that Abraham was not this type of individual in his trading business with others and increase in life to become wealthy. We no that God true blessing is salvation and the rest come from our love for God to increase and help other by our works.
Abraham was not a thief
One main point I want to point out to those that believe everything they are told without reading with understanding themselves to find the truth is this.
ABRAHAM DID NOT ROB AND STEAL BACK THE LITTLE BIT HE SHARED WITH HIS OWN SERVANTS TO MAKE HIMSELF WEALTHY! He got if from others out side his CONGRAGATION then shared and took care of his CONGREGATION..
Now think about this for a little while. Where in the book of Genesis does it tell at any time in scripture that Abraham took from his servants? No where! So why are ministers teaching this twisted lie? For the purpose of getting themselves rich from his or her Jim Jones.
Another thing about God and Abraham...... Abraham is the beginning of all of this.Of uniting man back to God. Even if God was or was not blessing him with wealth he could not let him fail in anyway because he made a promise to him to make him the father of all nations. This is super big stuff. A minister is a fool to suggest in any way that they have such a role to play and receive such a blessing.
Why Preach only Abraham wealth
Again notice that no one else under the umbrella of Abraham was rich. Why? Further on there were possibly a few and a few as KINGS but not on a grand scale. It seem only Abraham was wealthy as the pastor's tell it. If only one man was wealthy and it is this one man they point to then what's the beef? Why should this suggest that all Christians should be rich or wealthy? ...... another trick of the devil.......
Jesus V's Abraham
There is something else here to consider when a pastor or regular minister speak of a Christians being wealthy or rich. Though nothing is wrong with this, I do have a problem with wealth and richness being a part of the life God want us to acheive toward. This is not true.
If there were any play showing that Christians should be wealthy should be in the New Testament telling the life of Jesus and what he spoke of. Nowhere have I seen where Jesus or any of his deciples said to seek wealth and riches and Father God would give it to you.
Jesus was blessed in a way Abraham could not comprehend. The Son of God! The Word of God! A might blessing to the world where as Abraham was to the nations to come.
Jesus was a carpenter and worked with his hands to earn money before entering the ministry completely. There after, he gathered disciples and taught them and said follow me. He brought together 12 disciples that was as poor as he. Neither he not his disciples was wealthy in any way. In fact, Judas sought wealth to the point that he let a few coins cost him his life. He hung himself.
Jesus had a treasurer that kept the donations people gave which was meager. He was not focused on money nor trying to get people to love God because of money. His main function was to return the people back to God through love of God and each other. That love over come all.
Jesus died poor, yet, rich in God's love hoping all men would turn toward love while treatjng each other as one in love through Jesus Christ and the word of God he brought to us. Richness is the payment given in the end for a job well done.
Matthew 4:19 (KJV) And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
As Christians Jesus said we are to follow him, his example. It is Jesus we are to follow and not Abraham as some slick pastor's teach. We are rich in Jesus's Love and their by rich in God's love that deliver to us his richness of salvation, of eternal life.
Matthew 6:33-34 (KJV) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
This is the same things I told you above concerning God and Abraham. Let me add this little bit: "and all these things shall be added unto you IF YOU WANT IT. I told you this above also. Now you see a scripture that back me up.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
(Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.) It is bad to be satisfied with just where you are. You never increase. Another point I made above concerning Abraham.
Any pastor that tell you about God making Christians wealthy and rich just as he did by Abraham, you call them a liar and a false prophet and get away from them. Because you now no that Abraham did not rob his own servants. Yet, they are about to rob you in the name of Satan.
Only a fool seek not to no the truth and the truth will set you free. But then again, there are a lot of fools out there. One, so called, born every day for them. Are you one? You think about it!
Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, freed the slaves
Wait a minute, let's back up here. Abraham Lincoln indeed freed the slaves through a law call the Emancipation Proclamation that turned us blacks toward the Republican Party thus causing us to vote as Republicans. Yes, we owe Republicans for what Abraham Lincoln did. This act was done during the Civil War.
Today, we still have messed up blacks in the Republican Party still leaning on what this party did back then. Well, that was then, this is now. Right now they turned against us and forced us out of the party with their hateful ideology then farmed and harvested through their Churches the KKK to terrorize and destroy blacks because blacks was moving forward in owning and managing important jobs. However, black slave mentality remained in the genes of those that sold out slave planning their escapes from the plantation and still today continue to thrive in the Republican Party.
Republicans constantly remark as they being the party that help free the slaves by Abraham Lincoln issuing the Emancipation Proclamation. But wait! Did Abraham Lincoln really care that much about freeing the slaves? No! Why didn't he do it before the Civil War started, he had plenty of time?
Here is some history Republicans and others are not telling you. .... The confederate had a powerful military. It equaled that of the Yankees. To beat them, Abraham Lincoln and his cabinet came up with a plan that if they freed the slaves that worked the farms of the south it would almost certainly bring the Confederates to their knees. Break their back!
That is, if they didn't have merchandise and produce to sell they couldn't get the money to buy ships from Britain, guns, supplies and yes, food, thus causing the confederate army to suffer and become weak. Freed slaves also went north and joined the Yankee armies. And this is what happen.
While giving slaves their freedom was a good thing they was used as pawns in changing the outcome of the war. So for Republican to think they freed us because we was blood brothers is well over blown. Why couldn't we have been freed before the Civil War? And by the way. It was the Church that made us slaves. And it's the same rotten Churches that want to repeat history. You think about it!
