Your money is not "yours" as you think it is: It is all God's

The modern world is a sea of humanism. The tsunami of humanism has flooded the Church, yes, of all groups, the Church who is to be perfect Bride of Christ (Matthew 5:48). Such is the destructive and evil legacy of the Enlightenment era which sowed the vile, evil, wicked abominable seeds of "rights", the cornerstone of modern western civilisation. The idea of "rights" is a truly wicked, vile, abominable idea. It is a doctrine of demons and anyone who even thinks it is legitimate by the slightest bit is vile, evil, abominable and wicked. All that he thinks and does are filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). 

This idea of "rights" is far more destructive that most people, including many true Christians can imagine. One needs to be very discerning, and holy enough, living a life that is sacrificial - absolutely sacrificial to God. The holy righteous life is a life of self-sacrifice to God. It is one that not only believes in rights, by disdains and despises will all wrath, anything which pertains to rights, or implies that humans have "rights". The true Christian should not only have an absolutely unwavering, red-hot hatred of anything pertaining to "rights"; his life and actions should be hostile against anything pertaining to one's so-called "rights". 

If you believe in your "rights" or even think you have "rights", you are unholy, vile, disgusting, wretched, abominable, evil, and wicked, despicable person in the eyes of God. You truly are, and that is all the more the reason why you have no "rights", except to die in Hell where you should be right now, if it were not for God's grace for you. Before you simply say, "we are all sinful", a flippant excuse for justifying your "shortcomings" which should really be called your vile, evil abominable wickedness, you abominable disgusting person, there is a such thing as holy people who do exist. The Bible does refer to holy apostles and prophets (Ephesians 3:4-5: 2 Peter 3:2; Revelation 18:20). 

Most people, including many true Christians just do not understand why there is no such thing as a right. This is because of their vile, flesh which is hostile against God. It is because of their pride that they think they have "rights". To those of you ignorant and unstable fools out there, know this: you deserve to die in Hell right now, and that you believe in your rights is all the more the reason why you deserve to die in Hell in the eyes of God. It is true. 

Before you argue, let me tell you this: it is not me saying this, but the Bible which says so. The doctrine of "rights" is idolatry itself, worshiping the human flesh. Revelation 21:8 says: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death". Don't you dare think you can defy God! That is the height of pride, and exactly what the problem is with many people. Those Christians who are not holy enough, but are still easily influenced by carnality as those of the Church of Corinth were, cannot understand this. 

Everything that you have is not truly yours at all. You may think it is, but that is only out of your fleshly mind that you think that.  The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1). The carnal mind in exceeding arrogant beyond all description. It is so arrogant, thinking that if another wants to give one less material things, that person is evil. You, who think you are entitled to anything, are evil. 

Without God and His choice to make you, you would not exist at all. So much for your stupid material things! You owe your very existence to God, and you do not deserve to even exist. None of us even deserves to exist. You may argue, however, that you acknowledge we do not even deserve to exist, but that since God gives us what we have, we deserve it because he gives it to us. This is an distorted vile perversion of who God is, His Sovereignty, and who humans are.

The Psalm 144:3, the Psalmist says: "LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!" So, what are human beings? Nothing, but grass that fades away. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb (Psalm 37:2). So, who are you, you arrogant, proud, evil, wicked filthy rag who thinks that you are a 'god' in your own "right". You are not a god, living in your own way, thinking you are even entitled to anything at all. 

You may say that you are a true Christian. That may be true, however, the doctrine that there is no such thing as a "right", and that "your" money is not yours is equally applicable to you. In fact, it is all the more binding on you for you have the knowledge, and are no longer in ignorance. 

The whole idea that one "needs" debt for one's needs is  vile one, coming from one's belief in one's "rights" and that what one has "belongs" to oneself. One does not "need" debt. One needs God, and God alone, and He will provide all of what you truly need, and not what you think you need. 

It is true what each person has needs. However, of course, people in their carnality, and lack of complete trust in God think that what they desire, such as a more expensive house, or a car is a need. You do not "need" those basic needs which are more than you can afford. If you cannot afford a basic need that is more expensive compared to others, you just need to humble yourself and accept that. 

You may still argue, that the needs you accept as a need is not beyond your means, but that you  are struggling financially not because of something you have done, but because of the actions of another. That is understandable, but it is not an excuse to fail in completely trusting that God will absolutely provide all you need. There is not excuse to not fully trust that God will completely provide (Matthew 6:31-33).

The issue is not what one needs, or how much one needs. The issue is not how much debt one incurs. The issue is who one trusts in for one's needs, whether one trusts in God, or one's job, the bank, or the government. 

Do not trust in one's job, one's bank account,  government or money. It is not humility to trust in oneself or the things of the world, but the height of vile arrogance. It is idolatry in trust in such things. To worship God means to give worth to Him. To give worth to something is to trust in it. Thus, to trust in one's job, one's bank account, government or money is to give worth to such things, which is to worship such things. This is exactly what is means to love these things, and the love of such things is vile. 

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 (1 John 2:15). Trusting in earthy temporal things is spiritual harlotry: "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God" (James 4:4).

Your money is not yours. It is God's, whether you believe in Him or not. It is that God made the whole world and all the things in it that absolutely everything is His, whether you acknowledge or believe it. Thus, the money you have in your possession is not "yours". You are not the true owner of it. God is the true owner of it. 

You may argue that since God gives us what we have, we should use it for his good. That is true. However, it is God who defines what is good, not any person. Whenever a person, usually a professing Christian makes such as claim, the implication he makes is that because God gives us what we have, we should be able to do as we choose with it to serve Him. As long as one is seeking to define what is 'good' use of one's possession, one is an idolator. The money God gives to each of us to be used in the way He thinks it right, not what one might think is right.  That is the heart of the problem, which is the matter of the heart regarding one's use of one's possessions, and money.

The culture of debt is of the spirit of mammon who seeks to blind people into thinking that what they have is theirs, such that they can do as they choose with what they have. To further deceive many, he blinds people into thinking that they "need" debt. 

Debt,  in some cases be an (earthly) need, and creates even more needs - the moral obligation to repay, and above all, the need to set one's mind seeking earthly money to repay it all. This is what the spirit behind debt seeks to do: to control people by their lack, and failure to trust in God that He absolutely will provide all they needs.  He is the spirit of mammon.

The spirit of mammon uses debt is force them into seeking more earthly needs, on the basis of a failure to fully trust God in providing their basic needs. One need not seek to "obtain" one's needs; one only needs to trust in God to obtain one's needs for oneself. 

Trust in God alone, not debt. Debt is itself is spiritual control through financial needs, whether genuine or merely perceived. Discharge all your debt as soon as possible. Do not let it accumulate. Beware of debt who seeks to control, trap and enslave.
