Wealth Building With Money, Riches, and Wealth

There are differences in terms when we talk about MONEY, RICHES, and WEALTH.

MONEY is a medium of exchange that has an assigned value.  It is part of the world system, and therefore it is subject to the influence of Mammon.  Mammon is the principality behind money that inspires people to fall in love with money.

I Timothy 6:10  The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.

RICHES are money that is over and above what is needed, or money that is earning interest by investment.  Riches are part of the world system, and therefore they are subject to the influence of Mammon.

Proverbs 23:5  Will you set your eyes on that which is not?  For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away like an eagle toward heaven.

 Matthew 13:22  The deceitfulness of riches.

 Mark 10:24  How hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God!

I Timothy 6:17  Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.

WEALTH is what God owns because He created it (Psalm 24:1; Haggai 2:8).  It biblically includes land, gold, silver, precious jewels, and people.  In this category of wealth, land is a key component.  Gold, silver, and precious jewels are discovered in the land.  People live on the land.  Crops are planted on the land.  Livestock lives on the land.  Houses are built on the land.  So, it is essential for God’s people to obtain land.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
