MAN AND MONEY!
When God was done with creation, He decided to appoint an overseer over all the created things, to which He “made” man. This He did by moulding the man out of the Earth and forming him in His image and likeness, thus giving man all the glory of God!
Man is therefore expected to have power and authority over everything that was created (man was made, not created, he is special!)
Money is the general name given to all legal tenders of commerce and there are various forms. Each country or nationality has its own money, to which names like naira, dollar, pounds sterling, yuan, yen, shekel, won, cedi etc are given. Gold is the most universally accepted type of money, however, the American dollar is the major determining currency in commercial transactions in most countries.
Money is originally intended to simplify life as the general means of exchange. In previous times, one has to barter anything they desire for another, but as man became more civilized, a general means to achieve this in the form of money was devised, which unfortunately has caused more harm than the ease it was intended to bring, because selfish, evil people have hijacked everything about it and now use same to manipulate everything that can be!
Human beings have given money more power than it deserves, such that in most countries, everything is monetized, including personal integrity! Money has become so important that priceless virtues like truth, loyalty and justice can be bought! The increasing importance of it has grown so alarming that it is almost surpassing man’s allegiance and love for God Almighty, who created everything, including the very materials used for manufacturing the money.
The irony in all of this is the fact that, it is man that invented and makes money. How easy is it then for us to worship the works of our hands? Idol worship!
” ..but those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith, and pierced themselves with many a pang” 1Timothy 6:9-10 (NASB)
Will the time come when the eyes of man will open, the time he will wake up from his slumber? This is not real, it is more of a dream! How possible can conscious man watch as his fellow created being subject him to slavery over something he has no real need of?
People should understand and accept the fact that all the things that we desperately seek, are things we can comfortably live without. Whatever you are doing that demands “compromise” is not worth doing, cause it will eventually enslave you!
Do whatever you have to do in the comfort of your heart. Do not bother with the allegiance and praise that comes from your fellow human beings, because of the substance you or another have. Remember, it is the money that they respect or pay allegiance to, not you! Work more in developing your spirit self, for when the time comes, you will be glad you did!
Heaven is the highest level of human attainment and civilization.
The reason why money has become more important and powerful than it has ever been (it can never go beyond the present times), is because it is about to lose relevance!
At the moment, making money is one of the most difficult and important things to do on earth, while human spiritual growth is nearly at it’s highest. When both reaches the peak, spirituality will overwhelm money, which will lose relevance, because it was never a major part of human development, it was just a side attraction to entertain man’s fantasy during the window period in the journey of life.
Making money is about to become a pastime that will no longer appeal to humanity because it will soon be available within easy access and all the material things that it presently guarantee will become toys or art objects of little value! It will be the time that money will beg to serve man!
Imagine a situation where all humans will possess angelic abilities! There will be no need of cars, trains, ships, aeroplanes, because we will all be capable of astral travelling! This is not saying anything about telepathy and other subliminal abilities!
Things are happening very fast because humanity is about to shift to a higher level of consciousness! Those who are overworking themselves and making compromises or sacrifices in order to be rich are soon about to be disappointed, because those that did nothing will have as much or even more than theirs! The only labor that will not be in vain is the labor for love!
What are you waiting for? Develop yourself spiritually, stop loving money with all your body, heart and soul, rather in like manner, love The Lord your God and your neighbour!
