At one time I use to chase after money, joining multi-level markets companies to become rich and independent. Taking jobs to earn more money. Most of my life has been chasing after money.
The problem was I was serving two masters, one was money the other was Christ and it did not workout for me. Because of the greater calling of Christ in my life. There is a greater purpose that I have been called to do.
Christ said you can not serve two master either you will love one and hate the other. You can not serve both God and money together. How true this is for I hate money and I love Christ.
Then I realized that money is the mark of the beast. Why, well we take and receive money with our right hand, we think and have money on our minds all the time and on how we can earn or make more money.
It isn’t that money is bad but what money does is what is evil. How a person uses that money determines how good or evil money is.
What did Christ say the Love of money is the root to all evil. What I think Christ was saying here is that if you love money you will do anything to get it which means doing evil acts to have and get the money.
To be a true disciple of The Way of Christ we must forsake desiring money and the things of this world. Yes we live in this world but we are not of this world and yet we need the money to survive.
The Cost of Following Christ
Luk 14:25 Now great crowds accompanied him, and he turned and said to them,
Luk 14:26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.
Luk 14:27 Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.
Luk 14:28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
Luk 14:29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him,
Luk 14:30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’
Luk 14:31 Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?
Luk 14:32 And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace.
Luk 14:33 So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.
So Christian churches today that are in the world are not teaching the ways of Christ. They are the counterfeit church chasing after money like everyone else. They follow the beast system and have lost their way.
So are the Christians in the world, they do not follow the teachings and commandments of Christ.
I said that I was a Christian to many here on Social media and in life in general which turns out that I was living a lie told to me by the churches.
What is a Christian? If I say that I am a Christian I would be lying for every Christian there is a different answer to that question because of how they personally perceive themselves and the teachings of Christ.
To follow Christ in obedience to his teachings and commandments will cost you everything and maybe you life.

As for me, I am no longer following money for it is a fault’s god, a idol worship by billions of people. Yes I work only to provide for myself and for others who can not provide for themselves.
So where are the true Followers of The Way? I am one. By leaving everything behind to follow Christ in faith and obedience is to have faith he will provide for all my needs. Even as I am in the world I am not of the world and I have been set free from it.
Anyone who has read the four gospels can no longer say they did not understand Christ’s commandments. If you understand them then come follow Christ with me in faith.
I will no longer hold back my LOVE, or my voice in expressing my LOVE or my feelings that shows my LOVE, or the embrace of my LOVE. For I did not come to hurt but to give LOVE, to show LOVE and to be LOVE to you that need LOVE. I AM Him who LOVES with no conditions for I AM LOVE.
This is the great awaking knowing that your purpose is to become LOVE and to show LOVE.
