I had a conversation with a person the other day about how they don’t understand how God will give other people on this earth more than others. I do not have all of the answers. Only GOD knows our hearts. But I can tell you what I have learned from my elders and what the Bible will lead me to say in this regard.
Our started the conversation over how we see so many people who do not have the money to buy all of the things they truly need and forget about what they want. Some people have so much wealth that they could never spend it all in a lifetime of normal living. There are those that are so in love with money they will do what they need to do to keep it, forgetting about the consequences of it all.
I Googled the word “opulence” to see what the definition was to make sure I was correct.
great wealth or luxuriousness.“rooms of spectacular opulence”
luxuriousness, sumptuousness, lavishness, richness, luxury, luxuriance, splendor, magnificence, grandeur, splendidness; informal plushness, classiness, ritziness, poshness, swankiness
“the opulence of the room”
ealth, affluence, wealthiness, richness, riches, prosperity, money
“a display of opulence”
simplicity, restraint, poverty
noun: opulence; plural noun: opulences
great wealth or luxuriousness.
“rooms of spectacular opulence”
The LORD knows for sure how we all obtain our money. The LORD knows how people will feel about the money that they earn, meaning if they love it more than life itself. Like it says in the Bible.
1 Timothy 6:10
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
King James Version (KJV)
“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
King James Version (KJV)
My understanding as I was told growing up, was that some people are blessed with what GOD gives to them for all of their needs and wants. Such as when we say things like,
“God blessed us with a good life!”
“That was a blessing to get a house like this that we can afford!”
“God blessed us with healing!”
I can go on and on about the blessings we need to count on for their are many. And we all should thank GOD for what HE blesses us with too.
But when I was told further about why was the difference between blessings and rewards, the rewards would go to the wicked by the demon that they serve for doing wicked things. Leading people away from GOD and doing blasphemous things.
These people who are rich and do not do GOD’s will as one good man I have heard say when I was a child, “This maybe the only heaven they will ever see.”
When you think about it, this could be true. Living the rich life and pushing GOD out of your life will come a fall. This could very well be just that if GOD sees fit. With this thought in mind, we do not need to envy anyones wealth and prosperity ever. For if what the elder had said to me being true about rich people being rewarded by the devil? You do not want to step into anything they do for they dont see what they are doing and may not care either.
When we see pictures of people with excess, do not be envious of what they have. When we seek after the ways of GOD and HIS wonderful laws and plans for us we will do well. For what ever these rich people have here on earth , we will have better than we will ever expect to have once we are allowed into heaven to stay in the presence of GOD . his beloveded son and all of the angels there of. For all will be made by GOD and HIS will for us there in heaven.
John 14:2 King James Version (KJV)
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
GOD will never lie. GOD is fair, and loving. So as we do good here on earth we will wait on GOD to send JESUS so we all who love HIM will have our mansions there in heaven, our blessing to be there for all of eternity long.
