I'd Rather Go Back To The Village And Make Heaven
Genesis 39:7 "And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. 8 But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; 9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? 10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her. 11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within. 12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out. 13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth, 14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice: 15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out. 16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. 17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: 18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. 19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. 20 And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison."
I have been receiving calls from people telling me that they want to be rich financially. Others have been asking me if I belong to a secret cult/society which can make them rich financially.
By the grace of God, as many as I have encountered this way, I have been presenting Jesus Christ to them as the only one that give riches without sorrow Proverbs 10:22, because Satan surely have no good or perfect gifts James 1:17. This I will continue to do as long as the LORD shall help me, and if Jesus tarry.
Meanwhile, I do wonder why men so much bother and worry after physical wealth/riches, while they think and care less about their soul and eternal destination. If we happen to possess the best of this life, it is a temporal enjoyment and fulfilment Hebrews 11:25, which can never equal the bliss or pain that awaits us in eternity, due to the lifestyle we chose to live here on earth now; hence the Bible asked: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37. Absolutely nothing!
Just like Joseph, who ended up in prison for daring to be God fearing indeed, though he was promised earthly wealth as the gain of immorality by Potiphar's wife (just as some young men have become sexual partners to promiscuous ladies today), I will rather chose to lose my job, go to prison, be mocked and scorned by men due to earthly poverty, than to sell my soul to Satan for a pot of porridge Genesis 25:29-34. God forbids!
This is what helped Joseph to overcome. Psalm 119:72 "The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver."
Even at that, if the circumstances comes to the worst, I WILL GLADLY RELOCATE TO THE VILLAGE, serve God faithfully and ensure that I make heaven by HIS grace. This is what I will humbly do, if situations becomes pitiable to me as a Christian.
Proverbs 15:16 "Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith." Proverbs 28:6 "Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich." Psalms 37:16 "A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked." Proverbs 16:8 "Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right." Proverbs 19:1 "Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool."
Dear friend, will you deny Jesus, compromise your faith, compromise the word of God, and accept Satan's gift of physical prosperity at the detriment of your soul? The choice is certainly yours to make.
Joshua 24:15 "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
May God help us all in Jesus name. Amen.
