Rev 3:18a I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich;
For this Laodicean church, our Father insisted that they must buy from Him. Have you ever seen a father telling his child to pay for the food he consumes at home? Brethren, can you see how much this endtime churches are hurting our Father, the Almighty God.
Acts 8:20 But Peter said to him, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money!
So, when Simon, an ex-sorcerer wanted to purchase the gift of God, he was accursed.
Everything from God is free, such as salvation, spiritual gifts, anointing, peace, joy and love, forgiveness, helps, miracles, healings, and many more.
Father, forgive us Lord. Forgive us of our selfishness and wickedness. Forgive us for hurting you so much all the time. We do not deserve your love and mercies. Let us weep along with You for the anguish we caused, Lord. Forgive us Lord. Help us to bear the fruit of repentance and come back to Your fold again. Thank You very much Lord for sending Your only begotten Son Jesus to save us. We pray in Jesus name.
Many endtime churches have coveted, stole or robbed all His riches and wealth by hoarding them by investing in banks, shares, properties which is against His command 'not to lay treasures on earth'. God realized that He has no say over it for it doesn't belong to Him anymore. Thus, God insists on these churches using money to buy from Him, to show them their disobedience and wickedness.
He still will forgive if we repent, for the love of God is immeasurable and His mercies endure forever. Yet, He still wants to reward these miserable, wretched and wicked endtime churches with great honours to be rich eternally in heaven by showing them the way. Oh! what a loving and merciful Father we have. Hallelujah.
Luke 12:33-34 “Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys.”
To show our repentance and obedience, all we need to do is to sell everything except the basic needs that the church owns and send the proceeds to worldwide missions, poor churches, and Christian charitable homes, so that we are once again members of the body of Christ and then we will be rich and have treasures in heaven.
Mat 16:26 “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”
