I Timothy 6:10 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. Money is not evil, but the Love of money is the root of all evil.

Indulging in excess, pimping people out money and doing so in the name of Christ?!

Can all that excess buy anyone a ticket into heaven? No. The rich man lifted up his eyes in hell. We here at Readychurch don’t preach prosperity, we preach Jesus Christ. Souls are dying, and we are about the kingdom. Now understand the scripture establish as your soul prospers, you will also. 3John 2:1 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. The scripture establish this what God desires for you. It does not establish you pimping God for money, health, nor treating him like a spiritual santa clause (which is false worldy myth). It is imperative not to become sidetracked on our purpose. Often times, prosperity preachers will relate to their congregation “Sew into somebody great” which they are talking about themselves or rich leaders. They forbid their congregation to give money to individuals who do not have anything. They develop and relate the nonsense ideologies to the congregation to do the same thing. The gullible, naive people cannot understand what is so adequately revealed. The prosperity preachers are saying keep the money high in the chain of command, so it is basically a market. By their choice of words, they aim not to have the wealth leak out into poor community, or working class. On the contrary, usually half their congregation is poor, struggling to make ends meet and will give their last dime to the pulpit pimp. What does that say? They want your money, but they would not return the favor of giving back to you in your time of need because it is utterly beneath them. Many of those organizations including Church of God in Christ can be quoted saying it is not their job to help the poor, but the Social Service. We have to realize that Jesus said the poor will be with you always. Matthew 14:7. Matthew 26:11 He said help the needy, poor and he said for us to help the widow. Deuteronomy 15:7 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother

Luke 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. The monetary riches on earth, and laboring for the effort having it, are not what Christ wants of his people. Psalms 23:4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. We need not to be focus on being rich. We must keep our eyes on Jesus. He does not want us to have conniving spirits, neither coveting spirits, lusting after money and making it an idol god because you saw some rich preacher. The LORD God surely sees your heart. He knows your heart.  He reveals to his people what is going on.

You may have seen somebody say that is a great preacher he has fine homes, cars, planes, businesses, and money thrown at his feet, and trash loads of it, so they say let me try the prosperity preachers approach. What would be the person’s interior motive or motivation? The answer would be related to money. It is money. In the event they assume follow the approach of prosperity preacher, are they going after Jesus? Will he be first or the central focus in their life or the tangible things that the preacher has? Matthew 6:33 establishes as you seek first Jesus Christ which is his kingdom, all his righteousness, everything else that you desire shall be added. Does that mean all the money you wanted is coming? No because when an individual comes truly in Christ loving money would a thing of the past. The heart is deceitful and wicked. When you come into Christ your desires won’t be the same before as before, so money won’t be your focus. Delight yourself in thy self in the LORD he will give you the desires of your heart. Christ changes us, and conform us. You will not desire the same things after you come into Christ. Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Psalms 37:4Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. After you are in Jesus Christ you desire are not the same, neither is your life.  2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
