The true way has been lost

Now why do I say this? Just look about you and see what is before your very eyes. Most go about in their lives seeking after things of the world. Fame and fortune. Luxury and leisure. This is what Jesus Himself said about things within this temporal plain:
Matthew 6:19 – “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
Jesus makes it clear. To seek after all these things within the world is not the true path to God. Yet most in this world seek only after these worldly objects and believe with all their heart that they are one with God. Yet if you seek after the things of the world are you not then friends with the world?
James 4:4 – You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. 5 Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him.
It is made extremely clear in these verses. People would rather be the enemy of God than to serve God in the eternal life that is to come.
Now I understand where part of the break came. It came during the Presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was due to his action, that cause the depression, caused by the stock market crash of 1929, to become worse. Instead of sending money directly to those in need. He instead made this government agency and then that government agency. Making it so most of the money stayed within the government instead of making it to those desperately in need. This cause those that lived within this depression to in a way start to horde their possessions. This in turn led to a need for large houses, which in turn led to a need for more bigger and better things. Which took money away from those in need to those that that began to lust after wealth and property.
We got another glimpse of this in 2007 and 2008 when the housing market crashed. Causing several banks to go into a tailspin. Once again those in the government on both sides of the isle voted to give the money to those that caused the problem instead of to the victims. I actually did the math and as much money as the government took from the American taxpayers to give to the banks. Each legal citizen of this nation, be it adult or child, would have received $100,000 per person.
If it has gone to those in need there would be fewer poor people then there are today. Yes so banks would have went out of business, and those corporate leaders would be mostly the ones that would have ended up poor.
This is what happens when people no longer think of the way God would wish it done. This is what happens when people think they are the gods of this earth. They get this way because they have gone so far from the path to true knowledge and understanding of the Bible and its teachings, that they think they know what is best. When time and again throughout history this has proven to not be so.
Every time a past civilization falls it is due to this arrogance and a lust for things of the world. A desire to please themselves here in this temporal plain of existence. Not understanding that this time we now live is not for themselves, but to see if they would awaken to the true. That as we are tempted by the wealth and objects of this world those that seek after and desire these things do so because it is what they lust after. It is a trap that draws them in and it snaps tight about them. Breaking their will to escape from it and slowly, ever so slowly, kills them. Not in the flesh, but in the spirit. For a dead spirit will never see heaven, and that is something that brings sorrow to me as I type these words.
Reject the world. Reject the need for wealth. Reject the need for things. Reject the need for fame. For only one person deserves fame, and that is He that arose from the dead upon the third day. It is He that walked amongst us for forty days with holes in His hands and in His side. It is He that showed that God is real and that He is God’s Son. For that is who He is, Jesus Christ our Savior.
Turn to Him. No longer seek after wealth. No longer seek after fame. No longer seek after luxuries. For our reward is not within this temporal plain, but in the eternal in the service of God our Creator.
