Be not as the rich man. He sought riches to fulfill every need. He believed that those riches could provide eternal life. Yes, but it was eternal damnation. Seek that which is eternal in My Kingdom. His realization brought concern for those he left behind.
Think now of my Kingdom. Be aware now of where you want to have your eternal abode. I have provided riches untold; riches and wealth that this earth system cannot provide. Yes, you may have trouble for a season but allow my provision to become eternal. Do not allow the reality of the rich man to become your reality.
I came that you might have eternal life.
“And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; and in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and sees Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou would send him to my father’s house: For I have five brothers; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”
Luke 16: 22-24, 27-28, 31
