MORNINGTIME 2151
 
And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, HOW HARDLY SHALL THEY THAT HAVE RICHES ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD!  And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, CHILDREN, HOW HARD IS IT FOR THEM THAT TRUST IN RICHES TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Mark 10:23-25. We're talking people in general, not the VERY few who can actually handle riches properly. Most of our friends will tell you that they want to win the lottery. When we tell them it ruins almost everyone who wins, they say, "That's OK, I'll be very careful". They want to win a pile of money and believe it can buy happiness. Money covers a multitude of what ails you, money is the answer, just let me try, just once. And the dream just keeps going on... (Go with the flow here as I try to make an illustration). Here comes Joe Christian talking to a lotto winner wanna-be. "Hey friend, forget the money, if you'll follow Christ you'll get EVERYTHING. He's got everything you'll ever need in this life and the next.  He's got it ALL". And lotto man says, "No thanks". Here's what all this boils down to, everyone wants heaven, THEY JUST DON'T WANT CHRIST TO BE THERE. It's widely known that Christ can ruin any good party. That conviction stuff is a real downer. Try this, get someone talking about winning the lottery, and then tell them Christ is the greatest Prize of all. See how quickly they run from you. IT'S ALL ABOUT SELF AND NO INTEREST IN CHRIST. So what do you want from a "dead man"? Common sense? Spiritual Understanding? Until the Holy Spirit gets to them, they're just "dead man walk'en". DON'T GIVE UP ON ANY OF THEM, there's no telling who the Holy Spirit will work on next. Only those Alive in Christ can find True Happiness, and it's not in money. Seek Christ, He'll Provide, and you WILL, Be Blessed.
