James, the brother of Jesus, warns us concerning the worthlessness of riches.  Therefore, when Jesus returns money will be worthless in the Kingdom of God. Hence, to further clarify the spiritual message when individuals hear a loud noise in the sky, and in the blinking of an eye, they will be caught-up in the sky with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and for those who are left behind, you can have all the earthly riches; it’s yours, because you will be in hell.  us, it has already been established: “And again I say unto you,  at a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again, I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 19: 23-24).

For example, Jesus encountered a Rich Man.  e Rich Man asked Jesus what he must do to be saved. Jesus replied to the Rich Man, sell all your earthly goods, give the filthy lucre (money) to the poor, come, and follow him.  The Rich Man dropped his head and sorrowfully walked away!  Therefore, individuals should spend time storing up riches in God’s eternal kingdom, not riches on earth which are under the influence of the devil. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus teaches us about money: “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust, doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6: 19-21).

America, let’s clearly understand this: “The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.” (Proverbs 3: 35). Hence, never become a fool for money, because a fool, and his money will soon part ways.  is is why money is simply a tool: use it as a tool or use it as fool. Sadly, there are many Rich Men who use money to confuse, corrupt, control, and play God. Will someone, please tell rich men, such as Donald J. Trump that they are committing idolatry attempting to make money God. Laying up treasures in heaven is about obedience to the will of God, and to love one another.  Therefore, money in and of itself is not a problem.  e problem is the love of money. Individuals need money to support their families, support the churches where their families worship, and to support charitable causes. It is the love of money that leads to evil (1 Timothy 6:10).  Therefore, when individuals adopt worldly life-style choice standards evil runs rampart, because the evil spirit of the devil is fathering the world.  us, money can become a thorn in an individual’s side, if not used wisely.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
