DO NOT PUNISH THE RICH BY REV. (DR) CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
A lot of times we hear politicians saying stuff like, “We will tax the rich and let the poor go free.” I will like to say this, “If you tax the rich more than you should tax them, they will eventually visit it on the poor.” The poor will never exist without the power of the rich. Let me ask these simple questions: Who are the people that make the job? The rich. Who are the employers of labour? The rich.
If you tax the rich more than what is necessary, they will reduce the pay of the poor. So you see, no matter how you try to punish the rich, it will eventually get to punishing the poor. DO NOT PUNISH THE RICH! I have to tell you this because a lot of times when politicians say we will punish the rich (i.e tax them more), all the poor people will say, “YES!” Punish them. They are always happy about such news because the poor people are always angry at the rich.
Let me explain something to you… poverty is not the condition of your finances, it is not the absence of the required necessity rather POVERTY IS A CONFESSION. POVERTY IS AN IDENTITY! IT IS A STEAD OF THE MIND. Hear me, everything you’ll ever need in life is on the INSIDE OF YOU. The house in which you live came from the inside of you. The job or business that you have now also came from the inside of you. You just probably didn’t know it. People who have known this truth knows how to turn things around… And people who do not, think or feel that the city (location) or government etc. is responsible for where they are in life. Everything in life is connected to your inside (spirit). God has put eternity (the whole world) in your heart.
Let me explain further, when you take AN ORANGE SEED IN YOUR HANDS i.e. the little white stuff… That little white stuff has the potential of producing his own root, stem, branches, leaves and fruits which eventually produces many other seeds. Your life is like that; everything that will ever happen to you will proceed from your inside. The scripture says, ‘guard your heart for out of it comes the issues of life.’ That’s why God has given us the power of imagination. YOU CAN CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE. Don’t wait for opportunities to come to you because opportunities don’t come to us but we make them ( we create them). Do you hear me; don’t wait for an opportunity… Make them!
I am a Joint-heir with Christ; the seed of Abraham and the whole world belongs to me. Nothing is permitted to happen to me by chance… I make things happen. I am not the poor trying to get rich but I am the rich discovering what belongs to me in Christ Jesus. Glory to God!
