What some call power

Today, reply is on GOD allowing the living to get wealth, and to enjoy material things. The primary sphere of life for the existence of mankind has been and is to be the earth. It is no sin to admire things that display quality, or to acknowledge when a job has been “well done.” Divinity is not offended that men labor, rest, and are refreshed on the earth by material things, things that engage their mind, natural wonders, and things displaying diverse forms of beauty. Even so, the influence of man-made things should never overpower the correct fear (respect; reverence) of divinity through our observance of praise, prayer, unselfish service, sacred studies, sufferings, thanksgiving, and worship. It is written: Ecclesiastes 3: 12-14, King James Version (KJV): 12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. 13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God. 14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. A fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion & Spirituality who uses the ID “shoeshopper3” (Level 2 with 294 points) posted the following:

 

Do you ever think that even if you were a millionaire God still wouldn’t want you to have anything nice or desirable?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1: 17-18, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: The Love Of Money (10/27/2019); Parable of a Fool (08/04/2019); The Use of Money? (01/07/2019); You Will Receive Power? (12/28/2018); Anything We Ask For? (09/12/2018); The Mammon of Unrighteousness? (04/03/2017); Money Is No Object? (10/14/2015)

 

shoeshopper3”, as those who now receive life through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, mature Christian believers are to be guided by admonition, comfort, correction and encouragement that appear in the holy writing such as the following:

(1.) 1st Chronicles 29: 11-13, King James Version (KJV): 11 Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. 13 Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.

(2.) Luke 12: 13-15, KJV: 13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. 14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? 15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

(3.) 1st John 2: 15-16: KJV: 15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

(4.) Jeremiah 9: 23-24, KJV: 23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5.) 1st Peter 5: 2-3, KJV: 2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 Neither as being lords over Gods heritage, but being examples to the flock.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
