God gives us the Power and Ability to create wealth.
The question is why?
Wealth is a tool that can be used for building up Babylon — or the Kingdom of God.
Note: The wealth of the unsaved is stored up for the righteous.
Wealth is a gift from God that must be harnessed for Kingdom purposes.
The parable of the mina is a great example. "Put this money to work until I come back."
It is entrusted to us for a reason.
Jesus wasn't opposed to wealth. He was opposed to idle wealth. Wealth not invested into the Kingdom.
Once understood, Kingdom wealth is a renewable resource and God is the generous replenisher.
Another great example is found in the book of Acts. The first century church (His Ekklesia) used their wealth to take care of those who had needs.
They invested into their brothers and sisters. This act caused the church to grow exponentially.
It was Kingdom capital for Kingdom causes.
2 Corinthians 8:9 AMP - For you are recognizing [more clearly] the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [His astonishing kindness, His generosity, His gracious favor], that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that by His poverty you might become rich (abundantly blessed).
John 10:10 AMP - The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
Deuteronomy 8:18 AMP - But you shall remember [with profound respect] the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore (solemnly promised) to your fathers, as it is this day.
3 John 2 AMP - Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].
Deuteronomy 28:12 AMP - The Lord will open for you His good treasure house, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow.
If you are a faith driven founder or investor, ask God to use you in this area. Be bold. Ask big. Do big.
But you will be tested. Beware, Ananias and Sapphira failed the test and paid the price.
You can't fool God. Don't even try.
