“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.
Don't make money your God and spoil everthing for everyone. Quit playing this game! Why don't you just admit it upfront that all you are after is money and power through money. If that is the case then, you have worshipped and served money only. God knows your heart. You cannot fool God. Everything you do and say is for money and nothing else. How do we know this? We just look at what you have become. There is nothing to show that you truly worship and serve God. Every move of you shows that you live for money and money is your God. Don't put up a pretence and act like as though you serve and worship God. You don't, we all know that. Do not try to justify yourself in the eyes of others, God knows you pretty well and what you are after all the time. Your hearts devotion is to get more money to get more power over others.What a wretched being you are!
To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
Come on now, come and buy Christformation in you not with your filthy money which no one wants but your life of obedience to everything Christ had commanded. You can fool man who are like you but you can never fool God, His Christ who is speaking here in these verses. When are you going to stop all the pretence and change for the better with obedience to Christ in every way. Money does not solve your broken relationship with Christ. Don't you know that by now! why are you so blind 'O you pitiful and wretched one! You are the most pitiful of all human beings and you do not know that.
Come and buy full Christformation in your body, soul (mind) and born again spirit. You cannot enter into the kingdom of God pleasing the sinful nature of the Devil in you. How many times must you be told and the message isn't getting to you because your heart and mind is hardened in thinking money is still your God even though, you have been warned repeated times.
