All the riches, the wealth, the jewelry, the luxury cars, the mansions, the expensive vacation and weekend getaways, the partying, the pleasures and pride of life: What is the profit of it all?
“Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come” (1 Timothy 6:17–19).
What is the time to come?
The coming of DAY of our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 24:36).
“And the nations were angry, and thy [WRATH IS COME], and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18).
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For [THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME]; and who shall be able to [STAND]?” (Revelation 6:15-17).
“[RICHES PROFIT NOT IN THE DAY OF WRATH]: but righteousness delivereth from death” (Proverbs 11:4).
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, the Lamb, who was given all power in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18) (John 3:16-18) says: “Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24).
“Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).
“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled” (Matthew 24:32-34).
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:26-27).
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to [STAND] before the Son of man” (Luke 21:36).
