“Greed, a Deadly Disease in My House,” says the LORD!
In my quiet time with the LORD today, He began to speak to me His grief toward His children in His House, including those who are leaders of His flock.
The LORD said that “greed” is a deadly disease and has spread through His House. He continued to speak to me through the Holy Spirit that many people who have confessed their love for Him have now compromised on His Word.
They have now fallen and are operating in works and ways of darkness and acts of deceit. They have turned to their own ways, for their own gains. Like the Pharisees, they clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but on the inside, they are full of greed and self-indulgence.
The Word of GOD teaches us and asks of us today:
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,”1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
“And such were some of you. but you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the Name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST and by the Spirit of our GOD,”1 Corinthians 6:11.
GOD is not pleased and is calling all who have turned away from Him, to repent and to return to His ways everlasting.
The Word of GOD is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Let us not take His Word and Warning lightly. He is now calling us to search our hearts and examine our ways, and worship Him in truth and in spirit.
