    I believe this Word to be true. I believe God rewards according to His divine purpose He plans for each life. If your destiny and purpose is give to the poor, finance ministries all over, have compassion, God 's true love for people many times from the things He allows you to suffer to truly give from pure motives this transfer will be granted. Other motives causes you to turn from God embracing the world 's standards and thereby lose your own salvation. Love God first with all our hearts

    We should never curse but bless those who have much wealth Because those who have the most wealth cannot take it with them when they passed away For what the unjust wealthy is always laid up for just who are without wealth if this is their belief It is just one of many creative ways wealth is acquired by those who uses their own GOD consciousness
