THE RICHES OF THE KINGDOM
2 Corinthians 8:9 tells us, “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor…”
…and what is the purpose?
“…that ye through his poverty might be rich.”
There are people who say,“You are the Son of God, I believe that. But what I cannot understand is why you are inexplicably wealthy.”
Remember Deuteronomy 28:1-14.
Jesus Christ in the Jewish Setting did not remain poor. He went back to Heaven where He was before, as the Word of God, He was God Himself who made everything. He owns all the silver and the gold.
But the ministry of the devil…
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…”
That is what he did to Adam, our first parent. He stole the Sonship and the Kingship and then he killed Adam’s soul and destroyed his relationship with the Father. But the Son…
“…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
LOVING THE POOR
There is no poverty in the Kingdom to speak of. I hate the face of poverty, and so I change the face of poverty for every Filipino that comes to the Kingdom. I hate the nipa hut that is falling apart, that chicken coop under its roof, and that the people that live there are run-down and shabby! I love those people, but I hate the poverty. That is why when they become Kingdom citizens, I change them and take them out of poverty. So come, join me in my house. Come, eat my food. Come, wear my clothes. Come, drive my car. Come, stay in my house. Come, eat my bread. This is true love for the poor.
But this godless ideology that says, “We love the poor! We are defenders of the poor!” — yet the poor remain poor! They profess sympathy for the downtrodden poor that they are using because of their one agenda in life – to topple down the government and take over. That is why the peace process is useless because these communists will not stop until they win and take over.
Yes, they want peace but their own peace, not the peace that this government is proposing, not the peace according to the Republic of the Philippine government. No, the communists don’t want that. They only want the peace that is according to them, where they rule the Philippines.
I want you to know that these godless ideologues will not rule over this earth because I don’t believe that evil will triumph over good; that godless ideologies will triumph over a godly ideology. The godless ideology of hate will not triumph over a godly ideology of love because the Word of God says, “love will stay forever.” So do not believe them when they say that they love the poor.
