Why So Many Professing Followers of Christ are Angry and Bitter at God

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart (Psalm 37:4).

God created you for a unique purpose that only you can fulfil successfully.  No one else can fulfil it. He will give you all that you need to fulfil your calling that He has called you to. 

You may be at a season in your life where everything seems dry, or that nothing which excites you is happening in your life. If that is what you are experiencing in your life, God is preparing you for something greater. He wants you to wait on Him expectantly, patiently, but not desperately. 

If you are waiting on God for something desperately, it means that your desire for what you are waiting on God for is your own desire, and not a desire God has placed in your heart. The desires in your heart, and the only desires that God will give you, are those which He has placed in your heart. Psalm 37:4 says “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart”, and not simply “He shall give thee the desires of thine heart” which many people mistakenly think.

Any desire of your heart which does not align with God’s Will, be it His Commandments, or His specific will for you, will not be given to you. This has caused much anger and bitterness of many towards God. Such anger and bitterness is extremely dangerous because it leads to doubt and unbelief in God’s goodness and promises. 

God loved you even while you were still His enemy demonstrates His great love for you by sending His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, so that you may be saved from His just wrath. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life (Romans 5:10).  

This all testifies of His goodness. As Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”.

Many of you despise the love and goodness of God. You know that the Bible says that God is love, but yet you refuse to believe it. You refuse to believe in the goodness of God. How? You doubt His promises, despite knowing His promises for you, simply because you can’t see it. You are relying on your sight, not faith. Followers of Christ walk by faith, not sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

If you are angry and bitter at God for not giving you the desires of your heart, repent. Ask God to make the desires of your heart His desires for you. Cease to walk by sight, but rather, walk by faith. Trust in God and God alone. Do not trust in people.

Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD (Jeremiah 17:5).

Signs of a Person under the spirit of mammon

Both the unsaved and saved can be under the spirit of mammon. Do not be deceived! An unsaved person can only serve mammon because it is not part of his nature to submit to God in any way (Romans 8:7). However, the Christian can most definitely yield to the temptations of mammon just as he can yield to the temptations of satan. This is what is means for a Christian to be under the spirit of mammon.

The signs of a person being under the spirit of mammon are:

The person does not understand the spirit of mammon. This is because he or she is blinded by it and therefore cannot see it.The person reacts whenever being confronted with being told that they are under the spirit of mammon, or being told that they may be under it. This is not the person themselves reacting, but the spirit of mammon reacting.The person is self-satisfied with the abundance that they have. This is especially the case with many Christians today. They are happy with having a family, a well-paying job, security, romance a…

Two types of contentment

The world seeks contentment. It seeks to be contented in pursuit of all kinds of things, whether it be money, health, wealth, romance, sex, careers or family. It does not necessarily seek after riches to be content. However, that one does not seek after money as the first priority, but other things that are typically associated with good traditional values, such as family, does not in any way mean that one is content in the godly sense. By no means! A person can be a "conservative" and "religious" but just as earthly as the "liberal".

There are two types of contentment: earthly contentment and godly contentment. Earthly contentment finds its fulfillment and satisfaction in things that are passing away, not necessarily money, but also things like family, education and children. Yes, that's right. Many professing American Christians think that they could never be under the spirit of mammon because they care for their families and love their families, as …

The spirit of Mammon seeks to Steal, Kill and Destroy, by Deception and Murder

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

The thief in John 10:10 Jesus was referring to was the devil. His minions are no different. They also seek to steal, kill and destroy. Just like the devil, they use lies to murder. How? One may ask. Are not lies and murder from the human heart, rather than a evil spirit, those of you think that anything that the Bible does not explicitly talk about cannot be true may ask, who are so hostile against the doctrine that there is a such thing as a spirit of mammon?

It is true that out of the human heart comes lies and murder (Matthew 15:19). However, this does not mean that there is no such thing as evil spirit which seek to tempt people into lies and murder. Anyone who thinks that there are no such things as evil spirits which people into sin, and blinds them to sin is naive and foolish. 

Those of you who think you are so theolog…
