Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
The Kingdom of God is actually not for perishable things of this world that passes away. The success of the Kingdom of God is not measured by the abundance of things (wealth, prosperity or properties) acquired.
“Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.” Our Lord remarks. Luke 9:25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
Today, the above Scriptures are not more for preachers but for members only. They preach to members NOT TO GAIN THE WORLD but they are busy gaining the whole world, GREED.
They have forgotten that everything acquired shall pass away, only the word of God that shall not pass away. Don’t be surprised, many preachers are going to be like those people loading in parks but they don’t travel. Jesus Christ said, “they say but they don’t do it”.
My advice to you take advantage of those good messages and make Heaven. But if you cannot endure under such a pastor find a good preacher whose life can influence you to make Heaven. Remember rapture is true, Heaven is real and hell is real. DON’T REMAIN IN A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL BE CAPTURED INSTEAD OF RAPTURE, There is nothing like “my Church” in Heaven. Secondly, this statement “I am not serving man but God” is ignorance. Paul said follow me for I followed CHRIST. Be warned. Jesus Christ is coming back soon, nobody, I repeat nobody knows when He is coming.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with us all. Amen.
