‘If you denounce publicly what you desire in secret, your desires will never see the light of day.

With that said i want to let readers know I am not here to condemn the use of money, neither am i here to tell you that the pursuit to get money or amass money is against good principles. My views are from how God blesses you with money if indeed HE does.

The bible says money answers all things. What a classic by one of the wisest man to live. Ecclesiastes 10:19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things. [King James Version] To understand where i am going and want you to go with me, i first have to present you three characters in the bible. One, the prophet, two, the teacher of the word of God and three, the wise man.

Now, the prophets; these people were the special mouthpiece of God, though God in His highways spoke through mere men like when he spoke through King David in the messianic psalms. That was one way that proof David was indeed beloved of God. These prophets were neither rich nor given to affluence. They were more associated with penury that abundance. Seeing a major prophet like Elijah in those days was a sight to behold in shock rather than in opulence. Let us also go to the new testament of the bile. We see a man described by our lord and savior Jesus Christ, the man John the Baptist. Read with me; Matthew 11:7-9 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. ‘More than prophet”. Note before Jesus assessed John, he first let us know that his appearance was nothing to write home about. See the biblical description of John the greatest in the book of Matthew 3:4 “And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. In the old and new testament, money, affluence and opulence played no role in the work or personal life of these prophets.

The teachers are the disciples and the apostles, able represented by Paul, peter and john.
