I HAVE SAID IT BEFORE, THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO SEE QUICKLY IF A PERSON IS A REAL, BORN AGAIN, DEDICATED CHRISTIAN..
but one of the best ways to see this is to follow the money trial, trail.. and here to also see what their attitude is towards money.. even to see if they realy do now have faith in God to supply all of their needs, the monetary ones included, or do they resort falsely to beg, steal, demand others for more money.
to see if they good stewards of God’s money now too or wasteful. Or are they cheap misers. scrooges?
(1 Tim 6:10 KJV) 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.
Most of us have even as of lately experienced much too many persons, even strangers immediately coming up to us and wrongfully begging us for money, yes too typical of the much too many persons who falsely do still think that we are suckers, fools, and we here thus can be easily deceived, conned..
Well we are good Stewards and we spend our money wisely and we do even demand, want full account for any of our money we give to others.
When I get request for help, money I tend to ask the person if they had firstly prayed to God on the matter and what had God responded to them on the matter?Many people next seem shocked that I would rightfully ask them. I am surprised rightfully that they never had done this!
(Heb 10:38 KJV) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
All persons are to live by faith in God and to look towards God to meet their needs and not to anyone else. And if God wants us to give he will also personaly tell us.. God loves a cheerful giver, he asks but he does not force, or demand us to give to others..
(Luke 11:9 KJV) And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
(John 16:24 KJV) Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
As to why some people’s prayers are not bing answered include-
Mat 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
(James 4:3 KJV) Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
1 Pet 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
