God Speaks Regarding Covetousness

Section 1

Envy


Envy is a double-ended sword. One end is covetousness, piercing the heart of those who envy; the other is pride, piercing the heart of those being envied. Behold, envy is also a snare. For those who envy are held captive by covetousness, and those who are envied are easily ensnared by pride.


Therefore repent, and place
All your trust in The Messiah...

Make Him your focus,
Your only desire, and He will keep
Your foot from being taken...

Indeed, HE will preserve your life.


From: Envy




The Companion of Fools


Unrighteous jealousy is the companion of fools...

For those who envy also grab hold of jealousy,
Walking hand in hand with covetousness.


From: The Companion of Fools




Building the Gallows


Vanity is a rope, and pride builds the gallows;
Envy leads to hate, and jealousy
Brings forth evil thoughts...

Therefore, beware of the thoughts of your heart,
Lest you follow in Haman’s error
And walk in the way of Cain,
To your own demise...

Says The Lord.


From: Building the Gallows




10/21/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Wicked and slothful generation, DEAF CHILDREN, you have forsaken Me! For you have filled this world with every kind of evil; behold, you have reached new heights in wickedness! Thus I must blot out the kingdoms of men! I must wipe them away and cast them from My sight forever!... Never again shall they arise! Never again shall the nations do evil in My sight! Never again shall they walk proudly, shaking their fists toward Heaven in their self-proclaimed glory! Never again shall they revel in all these perversions and practice all these abominations, seeking always to satisfy their ever-increasing lusts as they pursue evil gain! FOR I AM THE LORD, AND I HAVE SEEN IT!"

~

"Beloved, what would you have Me do?! What more could I have done?! I POURED OUT MY LIFE FOR THEM! Yet they refuse to drink! My body was broken for them, yet they refuse to eat! For I tell you the truth, they have utterly forsaken Me, ME, The Fountain of Living Waters!
And for what, beloved? For what?! Look at what they do! Look how they greedily lust after every contemptible word and deed, filling their bellies with all this disgusting food, performing every abomination which I commanded they shall not do!"


Excerpts from: The Last Trumpet before The Time




5/14/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Therefore, behold the generation of My wrath, a people not desired, a whole generation of evil workers who destroy the garden and leave the land desolate! Their appetites are insatiable, their lusts unabated, a people without conscience, consumed by greed! PEOPLES OF THE EARTH, YOU ARE NO CARETAKERS! Says The Lord."

~

"And still you stand proud, saying, “Are we not wise in our own eyes and highly exalted? Do we not stand firm upon our own false foundations, for the sake of pride and vanity? Are we not a lavishly-adorned bride, who wears the poor for ornaments and the destitute for clothes?” Therefore, because you are haughty and your works pretentious, walking always in covetousness as a pair of shoes, I tell you plainly, you are not My bride! For none seek My righteousness as it truly is, none prepare My way before Me! Says The Lord."


Excerpts from: The Lord Gives; Behold, The Lord Also Takes Away




4/17/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Thus says The Lord God: This world is stricken, a corrupt tree which bears only bitter fruit! You have done this, O peoples of the earth! You have done this, O men of power and wealth, all you people of excess! YOU HAVE DONE THIS! For the sake of greed, to fulfill your insatiable appetites and ever-increasing lusts, YOU HAVE DESTROYED THE GARDEN!
Therefore cut down the tree and burn the branches! Break apart the stump and pull up the roots!... For thus declares The Lord: As you have sown, SO SHALL YOU REAP! And that which you have withheld from the poor and the needy shall be taken from you, and you shall suffer! Behold, even all you have wrought in the earth shall return atop your own heads, for I shall strike you down and lay you waste! - Desolation upon desolation, calamity upon calamity, plagues and famine until you are utterly consumed!"


Excerpt from: Stricken




9/9/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


"For you, O rebellious children, have indeed grown very fat,
Having engorged yourselves as the sluggard, even as
The rich man who sits at his own table to be a glutton;
For he partakes only of that which is pleasing
In his own eyes and seasoned by his hire...

So also do you, O churches of men...

For you seek after every seductive and deceiving
Spirit to satisfy your itching ears, embracing only
That which you perceive frees you from all accountability,
That you may continue to walk in the deceits of your flesh,
As you seek to fulfill every hidden lust of your corrupted hearts...

Thus you do always push out the hand against the Truth,
Hating that which brings conviction, resisting the purging of your souls."


Excerpt from: Churches of Men, Hear The Word of The Lord




7/16/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Thus says The Lord: The error of the churches is great! Behold, their every tradition has come up before Me as an awful stench in My nostrils, and their every doctrine assaults My ears with a terrible sound! For they have taken the things of God and corrupted them for evil gain! - Prepared speeches, lawless sermons, heresies against God and The Way!
By clever words and false hope built upon the promise of riches, they lead My people astray. Behold, they corrupt their own congregations by flattery, and because of covetousness the people are easily swayed... Oh the vanity and pride of men, who do continually seek after vain glory, saying within themselves, “Look at all I have done. See how I have come to speak for The Most High. See how I have become like Him!”[1]

Therefore, thus says The Lord: ALL self-appointed apostles, prophets, and preachers shall be brought to utter ruin! And lo, destruction comes swiftly, a weight which you have brought upon your own heads! For I am coming quickly in judgment, I am coming down with great recompense, and I shall surely repay! Behold, I shall strike you down, and you shall collapse where you stand; even as that which you have built up in your greed, for the sake of your own glory, falls with a great crash![2]
Shall one become a prophet by human means?! Is the voice of The Almighty something that can be claimed?! Can the gifts of My spirit be attained by human power, and am I now made subject to the wiles of men?! You have all prophesied lies before Me, you speak that which is born from the deceit of your own hearts! - A very foolish endeavor, a vain thing, a fatal error! For you have taken the things of God in hand, and twisted them, for your own gain![3]


Shall you attempt to steal from My glory, and then parade
Yourself before the people as though you were sent by God?!...

I HAVE NOT SENT YOU!...

Shut your mouths and be quiet, open not your mouths
And speak no more in My name, lest I tear you
In pieces and there be none to deliver![4]
For I tell you the truth, My judgment is not idle
And your destruction does not sleep!...

Therefore fall hard upon your faces, AND REPENT,
And I may yet have mercy upon you! Says The Lord God."


Excerpt from:
Thus Says The Lord to the Churches of Men,
And to All Their Self-Appointed Apostles, Prophets and Preachers

6/26/08 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

This question was asked of The Lord: Lord, what do you think of Todd Bentley and all these megachurches?

"Lo, I have beheld their hearts, and within them I have seen their vanity, vanities on top of vanities and many vain deceits!... Woe to the churches of men who seek after vain glories, and build themselves up by vanity and greed! Woe to them! For they shall be the first to be thrown down! They shall be brought down to the ground, they shall no more stand!
Look, My sons and daughters, look at all these detestable things wrought within the churches of men, and tell Me, what do you see? What do you see, beloved? What have they done to My name?!... Woe to these people of excess! Woe to all these churches of men, who pollute My name and steal from My glory! For they build great churches of brick and wood, magnificent buildings of concrete and steel, yet the poor cry at the doors!


Yes, they build great and extravagant houses,
They amplify their voices like the wind,
Yet the cause of the widow and
The fatherless goes unheard!..."


Excerpt from:
Woe to the Megachurches of Men




1/22/07 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


"Day and night you exalt yourselves, O sons of men!
Every day you walk proudly in your rebellion,
And every night you practice abomination!...

Shall you steal, kill and destroy,
For the sake of your own glory?!
How long shall you bring forth
Only works of unrighteousness?!
How long shall you run greedily for gain,
Fueled by your never-ending lusts?!...

YOUR WICKEDNESS OVERFLOWS,
A PEOPLE WHOSE COVETOUSNESS HAS NO EQUAL!"


Excerpt from: Rebellion, Recompense, Reformation




7/16/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"And shall you continue, without ceasing, to covet that which you do not possess?! Be set apart from this world, and come out of the churches of men. Only then will you begin to see, only then shall you receive ears to hear."


Excerpt from:
The Dust Has Been Shaken Off the Feet of God’s Messengers
As a Testament Against You, O Churches of Men




5/30/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Yet My people remain foolish, and this little flock envious. For I tell you the truth: Unrighteous jealousy is the companion of fools. For those who envy also grab hold of jealousy, walking hand in hand with covetousness."


Excerpt from: Delight in the Ways of The Lord




3/25/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Little flock, have you learned nothing from My Word? Have you so quickly forgotten My Letters, in where I have taught you the way in which you should walk? Indeed, who you choose defines what you do, as I have already told you. And who are the poor and the needy? How have you treated them, while entreating Me? Do not lie to yourselves, beloved ones. Every one of you who sit at this table want for nothing. Shall you mince words over a dollar, while others sit upon the ground seeking to draw water from a pit? Shall you covet five dollars or even ten as you drive about in your automobiles, while your brothers and sisters abroad willingly walk miles to preach My Word, with joy, even to their dying breath?
And still some of you sit at ease in your padded chairs, punching the keys, saying within yourselves, “I am delivered.” - You are not delivered! From the power of sin, yes, My children, I have delivered you, yet some of you remain married to this world. And those who remain married to another, even to themselves, can by no means be joined unto Me, lest adultery be brought into the house of The Lord."


Excerpt from: Reasonable Service




5/27/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Hear, therefore, the bitter grievance of The Lord: The heart of man has grown increasingly wicked; he seeks only to steal, kill and destroy. His ravenous appetite is never abated, and his lusts are never full. For his hunger only increases in the pursuit of evil gain, his thirst deepening with every drop of blood he spills... Therefore he shall surely have his fill! Evil shall reign and wickedness shall overtake him! I shall give him blood to drink, and in the midst of his fullness he shall starve! Behold, I shall oppress the kingdoms of men day and night, and the hand of The Lord shall weigh heavily upon them! And at the height of their transgression, I SHALL TREAD THEM DOWN!"


Excerpt from: The Generation of Wrath




10/7/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"For there is nothing new under the sun, for the heart of man remains deceitful and wicked! And in his unending quest for power he grows ever more corrupt, as he strives always to enhance his self-perceived glory, that he might fulfill his ever-increasing lusts!"

I Am Calling You Out! (Part 2)...
Come Out of the Churches of Men
And I Will Receive You! Says The Lord
