Matthew 5:3“Blessed are the poor in spirit,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,for they will be filled. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.                                                                                                                                  (How do we take the above scriptures and say when we get “money” its a blessing from God. Satan is threatened by the church so he is going to try his best to attack it. There is a extreme distinction between a blessing from God and a provision from God. When God gives us something it glorifies himself not ourselves. A true blessing from God causes our relationship with Jesus to grow. Nothing in the natural, money, cars, houses, etc has the power to touch our soul. Things in the natural only have the power to make our flesh grow if we let it. So this is exactly how the devil is going to come at us by manipulating us by using his kingdoms resources.)

John 18:36 Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.”                                              John 16:10 in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.                                                                   1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.                                                                                                                                                   1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.                                                                                                                  Acts 16:16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling.                                                                                                                                (Anything evil has a weaker power then God. Money is not evil and has no power at all. Once satan tricks us to give power to something that has no power then he takes power over us. Do not sell your priceless soul to the devil for anything this world has to offer. Jesus paid the price for our sin with His blood!)
