OPM and One’s Focus During the End Times



Other People’s Money: it’s what makes the world of the wicked go round.

At least, to hear the world tell it.

AND, it is one of the chief characteristics which separate the wicked from the righteous.

The love of the world, the love of money and the love of the things that money can buy motivates a GREAT MANY men to do things they ought not to do.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
–1JOHN 2:15

The author of the Book of James also wrote about the main reason the wicked  and the righteous do not see eye-to-eye.

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
–James 4:4

In fact, the apostle Paul wrote about this circumstance nearly 2000 years ago.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
–1TIMOTHY 6:10

Of course, those who chase after money and accumulate it would deny that money is nothing but a force for GOOD–and those folks will seldom tire of telling others the GOOD things that money can do–particularly, OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.

Particularly, if one is in GOVERNMENT.

Maybe the reader has heard one of these (who are pieced through with many sorrows), rattle off all of the GREAT and GOOD things which money can do?

And, those who chase after the accumulation of wealth have a difficult time laying the blame for ANY of their many afflictions on their chosen behavior.

One additional failing which is not discussed much, is highlighted by the question, “How much is enough?

Perhaps the reader knows of someone who has piles of money BUT who still pursues MORE MONEY as if he was starving and needed more money to feed himself (and his family)?

How much is enough?

Which leads us to the observation that the wicked do NOT (generally) accumulate their OWN money: they gather and accumulate the money of others: other people’s money.


It is what drives the UNbeliever to focus on the world and the things of the world.

And, by doing so, the wicked and foolish remain the way they are; at the mercy of the world; enslaved by the prince of this world.

REMEMBER: it is NOT money per se which is a problem.

It is the LOVE OF MONEY which causes nearly all the troubles.

DOES the reader share in the world’s view of OPM?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
