In our Lord’s parable of the “Bags of Gold” (Matthew 25) I saw the difference between God’s Handouts and the Government’s handouts.
In this parable we learn how God entrusts us with His wealth for the Kingdom. To some He gives more than to others, but to all He gives – so they can put it to good use for His Kingdom. This principle is for both the physical and spiritual; for the are very connected.
We learn from Scripture that every human being is made in the image of God; everyone is given an amount of wealth (ability/talent/field of interest) prosper with. No one born – is born poor, helpless yes, as all babies are, yet rich in what God has put in each human being as we’ve been “made in His image.”
Poverty is man’s own doing.
“I went past the field of a sluggard, past the vineyard of someone who has NO SENSE; thorns had come up everywhere, the ground was covered with weeds, and the stone wall was in in ruins. I applied my heart to what I saw and learned a lesson from what I saw: A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest – and POVERTY will on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.” Proverbs 24:30-34
“Whoever disregards discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored.” Proverbs 13:18
The “sluggard” had a field of interest. The lazy undisciplined person lacks understanding/common sense to prosper with his God-given ability/talent/field.
What has become very obvious with this upcoming election of democrat candidates is how they think poor people need their “free-stuff” in order to prosper; how low-income working people need more given to them in order to succeed in life. Much of our prospering has to do with how we use what we have; for wisdom knows how to use what we have and with what we know.
This parable of God’s most faithful servant of all: our Savior and Lord JESUS CHRIST, is teaching us wisdom for both the physical life as well as the spiritual life, for they are connected for sure.
The “far-left” and even the not so “far-left,” are making great claims of how they plan to make Americans succeed in life, as if we need their help. What we need is for them to get out of our private lives and stick to what the Federal government is supposed to do; protect the nation from invaders and plunderers, and enemies who attempt to get control over us.
So what did the LORD our GOD say about people who do nothing with what HE’s given them; those people who look to what the government can give them, at the expense of those who have put to work what God has given them to prosper in life?
“You wicked lazy worthless person! You buried what I gave you because you thought nothing of Me, nothing of what I had entrusted with you. Now I will take from you and give it to the one who has been sensible and hard-working. For whoever has been responsible – more will be given and they will have an abundance.” Matthew 24:14-30
The “liberal ideology” is to take from those who have an abundance to give to those who are not willing to work for what they have.
In America people are free to go after any dream they have, unlike all other nations. God has given each human being what he/she needs to prosper so that EVERYONE is fully capable of prospering; the problem is that NOT everyone is willing. AND, the reason that people are not “willing,” may be because of how “progressive democrats” keep offering more and more that’s costing tax-payers more and more.
Let’s consider who these politicians really are. Almost all of them have become extremely wealthy by promoting themselves while increasing tax on Americans. They are out-of-touch with reality of how to make this nation prosperous and blessed by God, once again. That’s why they HATE Donald Trump, and any prospering conservative patriotic American citizen. They hate his agenda to which is against their agenda and way of doing government.
People are wising up for sure. Those who have depended on the government’s handouts most their lives have become what the LORD calls: wicked, lazy, worthless. It’s interesting how God has the ‘opposite’ thinking of the liberal democrats. God’s way is to “take from the wicked, lazy, undisciplined, worthless,” instead of taking from those who HAVE done something good with what God gave them.
God knows how to keep you prospering, no matter what the government takes from you, when you keep your trust and dependency in Him, and not in the government!
Our government has grown to be ‘far more’ than a government should ever be!
President Trump isn’t a perfect man, but he definitely is a man who understands what made America great in the first place; the truth as to why God blessed this nation’s founders for how they governed for the good of all people legally coming into America, even for the good of those early black slaves brought here against their will (which democrats did NOT want to free), slaves whose grandchildren have become FREE AMERICANS putting to use what God had given them to prosper in life, passing it on, and who are speaking out right now about it.
Those who are out protesting otherwise – are simply self-deceived by those politicians working to keep them all dependent on the government instead of trusting in God and His wisdom. These “far-left/liberal progressive” politicians are in fact the worthless, lazy, corrupt, lawless rulers of the land – promoting themselves and leading others in the same way of godlessness.
I pray they get voted out of office as the TRUTH keeps marching on – turning the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous. May God’s people see what they need to see, understand what they know to be true and right, to do what we all need to do as God’s PILLARS in society.
