|Two Masters..> By Jo Smith >. Sept. 1, 2005This is what Jesus said:Mt 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:Mt 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.Mt 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?Mt 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?v19–Here Jesus speaks of the very thing we have been discussing so hotly, that of laying up earthly treasures upon earth, where the ‘thieves’ break through and steal. Now take that to the message Paul said the thief is the one who takes pay for doing the work of God. They broke into the ‘church’ and TAKE OF YOU. Paul said they are Satan’s ministers, transforming themselves.See here they broke into that ‘treasure’house, the church. They take of it. They are laying up for themselves earthly treasures. So watch this:v20- lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven…where these thieves do not break through nor steal…see they cannot steal your life with God in TRUTH. I have showed you how if they receive earthly, or money compensation, they will NOT HAVE THE HEAVENLY TREASURE. So here he is still speaking of not taking pay for your labour for God.v21-Where your treasure is there will your heart be also…..so their heart is in their ‘church’ for this is where they lay up their earthly treasures…money.v22- The LIGHT of the body is the EYE. If the eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of LIGHT. What is LIGHT? = TRUTH. what is TRUTH.= GRACE. Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.v23-But if thine eye be evil. -[notice this evil here takes the place of double]— the whole body shall be full of darkness.So what is DARKNESS, spiritually? It is error, false teachings. It is LAW. The law is darkness and bondage.|
v24–No man can serve two masters: ..ye cannot serve GOD AND MAMMON.
So see here that he shows that the TWO MASTERS ARE GOD AND MONEY. Yes, money is mammon.
So he is saying that for the eye to be single, it must be full of GRACE, NOT LAW. Law is darkness and bondage.
Everything in the word of God is the difference between LAW AND GRACE, FROM THOSE TWO TREES IN EDEN, TILL THE END OF THE WORLD. Yes, that tree of the knowledge of good and evil isLAW.
Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ…you must come fully into GRACE, to have LIGHT. .and TRUTH…which is to be single-eyed.
To be of a double heart of mind, or eye, is to try to serve God by both law and grace.. this is utterly IMPOSSIBLE.
See also that those under law are the ones who serve MAMMON? Those OT priests were the ones being fed of their brethern.
It is by LAW that they tithe. It is by LAW that they pay a man. this is darkness and error.
THE LAW IS NOT OF FAITH… SEE THAT HE SAID YOU MUST HAVE FAITH…TO LAY UP TREASURES IN HEAVEN. FAITH IS ONLY POSSIBLE UNDER GRACE. IF YOU GO TO LAW.. YOU ..FALL. .FROM GRACE. The law is not of faith.
IF YOU TAKE PAY, YOU ARE UNDER LAW…DARKNESS…MAMMON.
GOD AND MAMMON ARE THE TWO GODS HE MENTIONED….SO THEY ARE OPPOSITES….WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE ALL YOU PREACHER-PAYING FOLKS…OR YOU PREACHERS TAKING MONEY AS YOUR REWARD FOR IT?
…out in the DARKNESS OF BONDAGE. GOD CALLED THIS …EVIL.
Now take Scripture to dispute this, not your own carnal thoughts. I proved it with Scripture, so don’t go handing me your carnal thoughts to oppose this.
