“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?,’ for the pagans seek after all these things. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Matthew 6 31-33.
Heard another mentally broken mind trying to rebuke the health and wealth teachers by bring up Moses in Hebrews 11. Their point was that “Moses gave up the treasures of Egypt for God, who Moses considered a greater treasure (this is correct). Thus the health and wealth guys are wrong, because they ask and believe God will bless them financially.”
Jesus says that you cannot serve God and money, or that you cannot have two masters. Jesus does not say, you cannot have Jesus as your master and not have money, or not ask for it believing God will help you. If this person works 40-50 hours a week to get money, then are they not seeking money more than God, who they might seek a few hours a week at best? Ah’, but they seek the money to be blessed, be a blessing to their family and be a blessing to the church. Ok, so they can do this while working all week doing it, and a person cannot do this by seeking GOD, by seeking HIS promise and asking GOD to help them finically by a miracle and favor, so that they can be blessed, be a blessing to their family and a blessing to the Church? They are delusional.
Jesus says if you seek Him first He will bless you financially with what the pagans seeks after. The pagans do not seek the smallest amount; they seek much wealth. Let us look at Moses as a good example of this, since this is the example the non-faith person brought up. Moses sought God first rather than the world. His master was God, not the riches of the world. Thus, Moses fulfilled the requirement to seek God’s kingdom first in faith. What happened? Not only did Moses walk out with the treasures of Egypt, but all Israel pillaged and walked out of Egypt with their pagan treasures lined in their pockets and packs. They had so much pagan-level-seeking wealth, the could easily make the tabernacle and the whole system that went with it. That is financial abundance. The Bible and what Jesus said is not complicated, but unbelief takes the simplest of truths and use them defectively and perversely.
