Use your gift For Bread
3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.
4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
This was the temptation to USE HIS POWER for HIMSELF,
use your POSITION for YOURSELF, use YOUR WEALTH for YOUR SELF..
Jesus told the devil guy ” THAT MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD
ALONE , BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD . ”
What are you LIVING by❓❔
🌑 Bread is not a bad thing, God is saying even when you are hungry,
live by the Word of God.
🌑Live by all the Word of God not just some…..
Live by the Word of God. Do all that God says to do according to The Word of God.
Live by what God’s Word says don’t let your belly lead you.
19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their BELLY , and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
🌑PASTOR forget your belly, be led by the Spirit and not your needs..
The devil is back with the same temptation… Use your gift 🎁for your self….
Don’t use your Charisma for money collection.. Yes you have power over bank Managers, must you raise the offering because of need ❓❔❓
Raise the offering because (by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God) The Spirit said so.. It might even be a season when there is no need on ground but the Spirit said so..
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Let us live by the word of God…. By the way of the Bible… Teach them the Word and not how to follow their belly.
Teach the words of God
1 Timothy 6
6 But godliness with CONTENTMENT is great gain.
8 Be ye also PATIENT ; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable SERVICE .
13 But he that shall ENDURE unto the end, the same shall be saved.
16 For I will shew him how great things he must SUFFER for my name’s sake.
28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to GIVE to him that needeth.
1 John 3
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we LOVE the brethren. He that LOVETH not his brother abideth in death.
3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, HELP those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
1 Peter 3
11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
1 Timothy 5
20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
1 Timothy 6
17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on
ETERNAL LIFE .
11 You know how we call those blessed (happy) who were steadfast [who endured]. You have heard of the endurance of Job, and you have seen the Lord’s [purpose and how He richly blessed him in the] end, inasmuch as the Lord is full of pity and compassion and tenderness and mercy.
Teach them that the end of our race is Eternal Life and not Temporary Riches.
SALVATION is not complete until we get to HEAVEN
9 RECEIVING the END of your FAITH , EVEN the SALVATION of your souls.
11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
1 Thessalonians 5
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
2 Timothy 2
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
