JESUS ​​RICH - JESUS ​​POOR. BY FABIAN MASSA.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.


Talking with a Christian friend sharing a coffee, about the phenomenon of Prosperity Evangelism, he, who was formed in the largest temple of Neo-Pentecostalism in Argentina, to justify the preaching (and especially the search for material prosperity by Part of the congregation) gives the strongest argument that this "theology" has:

"The family of Christ was rich, for when he was born he received a fortune from the Kings of the East and with that the family lived for several years abroad (Egypt) until the death of Herod the Great."

The fact itself is true, the Sages of the East offered him gold, frankincense and myrrh (Matthew 2:11) and after that the Lord warned the Magi to return to their land by another way and also Joseph of imminent danger, ordering him to leave Hurriedly to Egypt and did not return until Herod's death, which is believed to have occurred in 4 BC As early date or in 1 BC. As late.

The time the family spent in Egypt (about three years) would have lived with the gift of the Eastern Sages. Then there is an absolute silence on the life of Jesus, the Scripture recounting the brief episode in which his parents "lost" him (Luke 2.43-45) on a pilgrimage they had made to Jerusalem at the age of twelve Jesus 2.42). Silence again and Jesus appears at the beginning of his public ministry at thirty years of age.

What is known of Jesus by Scripture is the following:

Joseph was a carpenter (Matthew 13:55) and Jesus as his first son, according to tradition, followed the office of his earthly "father". They lived with all their family in Nazareth (Matthew 2:23)
No more detail, he does not say whether he was rich or poor, but being the carpenter of a small village, they would most likely have a simple and humble life, ruling out that he was a wealthy family of people.

But the Bible says more about Jesus, who he really was:

In John 1: 1 he says that Jesus was the Logos, the Word, the Word, the Wisdom of God, who made all things (John 1: 3) and that the Logos became flesh (human) and who dwelt among men (John 1:14 ). That is, to be God, all-powerful and unlimited, he divested himself of being God (Philippians 2: 7) to be a mere man, mortal, finite, limited, with a common life, working as a carpenter ... that is, he stripped himself of His Glory, became impoverished, to become a man ... was decidedly a choice of empathy toward us.

But then, in his thirties, he emptied himself even more, left his house and devoted himself to the public ministry, depending entirely on God, becoming impoverished to the point of having no place to lay his head (Matthew 8:20, Luke 9:58)

Isaiah had prophesied that he would be a man "despised and rejected among men, a man of sorrows, And as we hid his face from him, he was despised, and we esteemed him not "(Isaiah 53: 3).

Therefore we can see the argument of "Jesus was rich" of the "Evangelists of Prosperity" has no handle. The Logos was omnipotent and became poor in Jesus to redeem the poor. That is the path that all the true Missionaries follow through the call of God, to leave their comfort, their personal projects, their dreams of self-realization to dedicate themselves to the poor, the needy, those who have no opportunity and no one wants to approach. True missionaries become poor among the poor to enrich them with the * Life of Christ through their lives * [1].

But these false apostles, false prophets and false teachers of the Gospel of Prosperity, of Pacte with God, but leave their money in my pocket follow the opposite way: Being poor people get involved in the Gospel to promise prosperity in exchange for money to All unsuspecting that crosses them, coming to live as true Princes. These soulless and thieves trample on the Blood of Christ, selling a prosperity that they can not give, when Jesus Himself sacrificed Himself for us all without asking for a penny.

This is what is reserved for them: "2: 1 But there were also false prophets among the people, as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, and even deny the Lord who rescued them, drawing upon themselves sudden destruction . 2: 2 And many shall follow their judgments, by reason of which the way of truth shall be blasphemed, 2: 3 And by covetousness they shall make merchandise of you with deceitful words. Over such a long time doom is not delayed, and its doom does not fall asleep. 2 Peter 2: 1-3 RV 60

Week 70 is about to begin, you wake up, to sleep!
