Too many people these days have been lured into embracing evil by the carrots and sticks that demons wield in this Valley of Tears. The "Christian" mega-churches in the USA are an excellent example of depraved humans who embrace all things ANTI-Christian, no matter who is hurt and no matter what the Holy Scriptures say, all so they can "prosper" economically.

The Apostle Paul accurately described the true motive of these heretics and contrasted it with the true motive of a Christian:

Quote
Philippians Chapter 3:18-21

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

The bold faced heretics in these prosperity preaching mega-churches often quote Philippians Chapter 4:19, ignoring the message in the verses above and, more importantly, WITHOUT mentioning the even clearer message delivered in some verses (Philippians Chapter 4:11-13) a little before Philippians Chapter 4:19:

Quote
Philippians Chapter 4:19

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Notice that the what God promises to supply to the believer is your NEED, not your GREED or your WANT. Often this NEED is not a material item at all, but some ADVERSITY and/or the LACK of material goods for the purpose of making your spirit grow. But, too many people are blinded by the clever (greed based) claim that hey, God is a really, really rich dude, so if I am promised according to HIS "riches in glory", that is a lot of MATERIAL PROSPERITY!

Now look at verses 11-13  🧐

Quote
Philippians Chapter 4:11-13

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

You need to be strengthened if you are in adversity. Therefore the "all things" Paul is referring to are even more applicable to bad times than to economic prosperity.

In the light of the above, the true context of verse 19 becomes clear:

Quote
Philippians Chapter 4:19

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

When these heretics prosperity preach about "doing all things in Christ", remind them that SUFFERING and ADVERSITY and WANT and HUNGER are OFTEN part of DOING ALL THINGS IN CHRIST. Who knows? It might even rip the money and power loving satanic blinders they wear with such hypocritical pride off of them.

If anyone still harbors doubts about what Paul means when he makes mention of how, and why, God uses His "riches in glory" (see: "glorious power") to strengthen Christians, Colossians Chapter 1, verse 11 should make it crystal clear that economic prosperity is NOT included. God strengthens us during, as well as through, adversity so we grow spiritually. The fruit of that growth is good works, NOT the accumulation of wealth.

Quote
Colossians Chapter 1:10-11

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

ANYONE who tells you that God wants you to be rich is engaging in demonic mendacity. Reject their Prosperity Preaching Heresy. Economic wealth is one of the biggest snares that Lucifer uses to prevent you from obediently serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
