Money as idol: (8-15-09 will not gain heaven, soul most important) July 6, 2007

At St. Theodore’s tabernacle I could see a large denomination bill of money blown up on a large screen. Jesus said: “My people, there are some people who strive all of their lives to make as much money as they can. They let money dictate how they live and in essence they let money and fame control them. These are the same people that measure success in how much money and property they could accumulate. But what good is it to gain the whole world and lose your soul? This wealth is fleeting and it will not help you to gain heaven. Treasure on earth is a whole lot different that heavenly treasure. Earthly treasure can only buy earthly things, but these earthly desires have to be purged from your soul to make you ready for heaven. Heavenly treasure for your good deeds, prayers, and charity cannot be stolen or devalued, and it may help you when you are judged at your judgment. Earthly treasure is valued by man, but heavenly treasure is valued more by Me. Focus more on your heavenly treasure which can help gain you eternity in heaven. Those, who strive for money, become a slave to money and even make money an idol which could endanger their reaching heaven. Money is only a means to provide for your living. It is not an end in itself. Worship Me only over anything of earthly origin. If you worship money, you are violating My First Commandment.”
