I am a messenger sent by Jesus Christ. The go-spel word from the Holy Bible is “Luxury and the pride of life” Revelation 18:3,7,9 First John 2:16
Revelation Chapter 18 speaks about going after and lusting luxury living, of buying and selling of material expensive goods, sex selling, souls, only name brands, by unfair means, and we are to stand our distance from this behavior. For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury. And the kings when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, Alas, that great city Babylon, mighty City: For in one hour your judgment has come. The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, for the fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing. And every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance.
First John 2:16 For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the Father but is of the world.
We have gone overboard with money. Micah 3:9-11 Now hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob And rulers of the house of Israel, who abhor justice And pervert all equity, who build up Zion with blood shed And Jerusalem with iniquity: Her heads judge for a bribe, Her priests teach for pay, And her prophets divine for money.
Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:5, 18-19
The Lord is against the pride and He resists them. I Peter 5:5 Psalm 12:3; 101:5 Proverbs 15:25 Luke 1:51. It is time to see the LORD and not be proud, or live the pride of life, But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. Revelation 22:15
