As the Bible tells us, in the last days the hearts of men will be desperately wicked. Some have lost all sense of what is right and wrong. Some seem to have sold their souls to the devil. They will do anything to rob the poor of the very little that they have. Some of these people will even try to use the name of God to seek wealth. They have no conscience. They target the poor, the disillusioned, those who are desperate for hope and do not understand that they should put their trust in God and not in man.
They say a drowning man will catch at a straw. When you are down and out and everything seem to come crashing down. When nothing is going well in your life, you are desperate for hope and someone says ” I can guarantee you an eight minute miracle” you might be tempted to stop and listen. When someone tells you plant a seed faith of two hundred five hundred or a thousand dollars and you will see an instant turn around in your life you might be so desperate for a change in your life that you do as you told without question.
No matter how desperate you are you need to ask yourself if this is how God operates. He said ask and it shall be given, seek and he shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you. Where did it say you have to pay in cash first to receive these favors? Some of them will tell you it is not for everyone, take a hint; the miracles they are promising are for only those who can afford to pay.
God wants us to give but not in the selfish manner that some of those who proclaim to teach in the name of the Lord want you to. When you feed the hungry, give to the poor, provide a home for the homeless and clothes the naked you are doing these things to the glory of God and as such you will receive his blessings because you are doing it out of love not because you expect to get something in return. Jesus said”‘ In so much as you do these things to the least of my brothers you do them unto me.”
These are the kind of seeds that God wants us to sow. He wants us to give of ourselves unselfishly expecting nothing in return from those for whom we do these good deeds. This is how we receive God’s blessings. This is how we see the miracles in our lives. No man on earth can guarantee you a miracle. If miracles were for sale what would happen to the poor?
Have faith in God. Trust in Him and believe that He will supply all your needs. Help the less fortunate in whatever way you can. God knows what is in the heart of every man. Those who try to sell you miracles as disciples of the devil and not of God. The Bible tells us that in the last days there will be false prophets. Open your eyes and see, open your ears and hear. Ask God for knowledge and understanding. Put not your trust in man and their promises. Trust only in God
Our airways these days are flooded with people who all proclaim to be preaching or teaching the words of God. Many of these persons are truly genuine and the messages they deliver are filled with hope and inspiration. They try to teach people to live according to God’s will.
There are others whose motives are questionable and it is not difficult to see who these people are. Most of them start their broadcast by telling you to plant a seed faith then they go on to tell you how much money you should send and sometimes these sum seems quite exorbitant!
“Plant a seed faith of two hundred dollars and expect a miracle, something wonderful will happen in your life! Plant a recovery seed faith of two hundred and seventy three dollars and you will receive an instant miracle, great changes will happen in your life. Plant a seed faith of two hundred, five hundred or a thousand dollars whatever you can afford! Apparently no thought is given to the person who can only afford five or ten dollars!
These false prophets will tell you that God tell them to ask for this seed faith, they will try and tell you to obey God’s will without question and most of their broadcast will focus on them telling you to send them money instead of bringing you much message on the word of God. By their fruits you shall know them. They will say “I know many of you are going through financial problems right now” and in the next breath say “Put it on your bank card”
These people are not of God they don’t care about you all they want is your money and they are using the name of God in order to get it. God’s Love comes with no charge. Miracles come through faith and for that there is no charge. When you pray to God and ask anything of him in faith and believing, he will answer your prayer and there is no charge! You do not have to pay anyone to pray to God for you to receive a miracle in your life. You can pray to him and ask him yourself and there is no charge.
Do not be fooled by people who uses promises of miracles to get your money or make you put yourself in debt to send it to them because they are not of God. In fact they have no faith themselves because if they did they would know that God will supply all their needs. If they were there to spread they gospel of God he would supply their finances to do so, there would be no need for them to be preying on vulnerable who are so desperate for hope that they would be willing to pay money to receive a miracle!
Jesus warned about these false prophets who would appear in the last days so do not be deceived. Miracles cannot be bought and anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar and not of God!
