True riches are not comprised of material things. Some of our Two Minutes articles were written many years ago by Pastor C.

Stam for publication in newspapers. When many of these articles were later compiled in book form, Pastor Stam wrote this word of explanation in the Preface:. Rather than rewrite or date such articles, we have left them just as they were when first published. This, we felt, would add to the interest, especially since our readers understand that they first appeared as newspaper articles.
To this we would add that the same is true for the articles written by others that we continue to add, on a regular basis, to the Two Minutes library.

Handling the Unrighteous Mammon As stated previously, there is a reason why the mark of the beast is an economic mark. The love of money is one of the ultimate idols of the human heart and those who worship it are worshiping the beast. One of the ultimate issues of true Christian maturity is learning to handle money or what the Lord called, "unrighteous mammon" Luke It tests some of the ultimate issues of the heart and does seem to quickly distinguish the true from the false.
As we have also stated often, the harvest is the reaping of everything that has been sown in man, both the good and the evil.

At the very time the greatest darkness is covering the earth, the glory of the Lord is being revealed in His people. As this is stated in Isaiah We do not want people to come to us because of what we have, but because the glory of the Lord is being revealed in His temple, His people.

When the nations come bringing their wealth, it is not so God's people can then be wealthy, but so we can manage it rightly for the sake of the ones who are bringing it to them. When the first converts brought all of their possessions and laid them at the feet of the apostles, it was not so the apostles could have it, but so they could manage it for a fair distribution among the people. The wealth of the nations is still for the nations. Why Is the Church Here?
The church exists first to minister to the Lord and then to minister to people. We do not exist so people can serve us, but so we can serve them. The most basic way we can serve them is to connect them to the Lord, helping them to develop their own relationship to Him and thereby become those who exist to serve instead of being served.

The selfish way in which many teach how the wealth of the wicked will be given to the righteous can turn the righteous into the wicked. This is not about us. It is about the Lord and giving ourselves to seeing Him receive the reward of His sacrifice. It may seem that I belabor some of these points too much, but we need a major paradigm shift in our basic thinking if we are going to become who we are called to be, entrusted with authority, and the wealth that we are called to have.
Great authority and great wealth will come to those who are true servants - stewards who live to serve, not be served. Learning how we deal with that which we are entrusted is a big part of our preparation for the times that are coming. For this reason I will not cease to include reminders of our most basic calling - to serve. As the Lord Jesus said in Luke 9: For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it. For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself?
For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. There is a reason why He ends this exhortation on not being ashamed of Him and His Words. This is one of the ultimate tests of whether we are living for our own glory and acceptance or for His. We can count on it becoming increasingly difficult to be His followers, but we also know that for those who remain faithful, His glory will be entrusted to them and in the end the whole world will come to them.
