The Love of Money Is The Root of All Evil!
Steven Ben-Nun: Shalom Chaverim, I’m Steven Ben-Nun with DeNoon Institute of Biblical Research. The other day in one of the news special reports that I was doing I mentioned to you about the love of money and that really got me to wanting to go back because God was just putting this in my heart. Dealing with me about it and so I thought I must go back and really look at the scripture about this not just the fact of money but the word root because it is the root of all evil.
The scripture that we actually looked at is found in 1st Timothy 6:10 for the love of money is the root of all evil. All evil? That’s very huge to say that; which while come coveted after they have erred from the faith and pierce themselves through with many sorrows. It really got me on a search because the Lord had already revealed to me what the real meaning of this passage was. It was a prophetic passage and of course I remember many of the scriptures that speak about the Messiah especially in the prophetic tone.
If you look for example in Isaiah 53 starting with verse 1 and we’ll read through verse 5 who hath believe our report and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tend plant and as a root out of a dry ground. He hath no form or comeliness when we shall see Him there is no beauty that we should desire Him. This is speaking of the Messiah the coming Messiah. He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows acquainted with grief and we hid as it were our faces from Him.
How said. He was despised and we esteemed Him not surely He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted but He was wounded for our transgressions He was bruised for our iniquities the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed. Of course this beautiful scriptures there about the Messiah especially the healing by His stripes we’re healed. He was bruised for our iniquities, He suffered so greatly but the important part in this case here is He is typed as a root out of dry ground.
Then again we have the other scriptures as well especially where; actually let me see if I could ah; this one here I believe this is in Isaiah a prophecy here. And I forget which chapter I think it’s (Isaiah) chapter 11, chapter 11 verse 10 and it shall come to pass in that day, in the King James they worded this a little; they did a mistake in their translation but let me go ahead and read it, that the root of Jesse that standeth for an ensign of the peoples unto it shall be nations seek and his resting place shall be glorious. Now the word it is not written in Hebrew it’s actually unto Him shall the nations seek. It’s actually (Hebrew) elayw Goyim yid’roshu, the elayw unto Him; unto Him Goyim shall the Gentiles seek. And He is actually called the Root of Jesse so the Messiah is typed as the root.
Again we have in Revelation chapter 5 and one of the elders saith unto me, weep not behold the Lion of the Tribe of Judah the Root of David have prevailed to open the Book and loose the 7 seals. The Root of David again it’s referred to as the root. He says in Revelation 22:16 it says when Yeshua is speaking I Yeshua have sent Mine angel to testify unto you these things in the Churches I Am the Root and offspring of David and the Bright and Morning Star.
Now here’s what’s fascinating if Yeshua; if the Coming Messiah of 2,000 years ago was referred to in prophecy by the prophets of old as a root, He was likened as the root. Also we find it in I believe it’s in Romans 11, He is the root and we are the branches. It’s not that we are the root, Israel is not the root in fact it clearly it says that because of unbelief in part because of unbelief and part because of blindness Israel is; the branches are cut out of the tree. See they’re not the root, the Root is what gives the Life and Christ is that Root. So if Christ is the Root as the Messiah the Anointed One, the Christ, Yeshua, if He is the Root then the Anti-Christ must also have a root as well. And that’s where I found these interesting scriptures that identify.
Now let’s look back again at Timothy, let’s go to verse 7, it’s in chapter 6, 1st Timothy he says for we brought nothing into this world and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be there with content but they that will be rich will fall into temptation and a snare. And unto many foolish and hurtful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. Wow! It downs men in destruction and perdition. You know the perdition, you know Judas was called the son of perdition and as well as the Anti-Christ would be called the son of perdition. Judas was the man that carried the money bag interesting and he was an apostle. Now the Roman Catholic Church believes that the Pope of Rome is the successor to Peter. He is the successor to one of the apostles but it’s not Peter its Judas because they still carry the money bag. And it’s true that he is the successor let’s look and see how we know this. In verse 10 it says for the love of money is the root of all evil. All, all the evil there is has a root and that root is identified by the desire that is that love of money. And even the scripture says in one place about Judas it wasn’t that he cared about the poor but he held the money bag.
It’s the same thing with the Roman Catholic Church if they really cared about the poor as the world tries to make it look like they do then they would sell off the trillions of dollars of gold and feed the world instead of building all the idols but they don’t. They don’t care about the poor that’s even, I don’t just blame it on the Catholic Church what about the mega billion dollars, million dollars Churches that are built? I mean what about all; what about the poor? You know when’s the last time you have tried to help someone that was in need? It’s important it’s what Yeshua it’s the life that He lived. It’s what He demonstrated to us that we help others.
Anyway it says for the love of money is the root of all evil. Now here’s what’s really interesting; which while some coveted it, they really desire it; after they have erred from the faith. They were actually part of the original walk with Christ like Judas was and if that’s not a direct statement about Judas I’d be surprised. See which while some coveted it, after they had erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. This is exactly what the Catholic Church did.
Oh yes the Early Church Fathers and stuff they were offshoots of the Christianity they were offshoots of the Campaigns of the Early Apostles and no doubt could probably easily trace it back and could tell you which Apostle was that Apostle that witnessed to the one maybe even a witness to them. But they coveted that money and God was giving you a sign to know who it was that would have, in other words the sign is the root of all evil is that one that has that love for money. Then it gets better than that.
Let’s look at Hebrews chapter 12, looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness springeth up trouble you and thereby many be defiled; a root of bitterness; lest there be any fornicator or profane person as Esau who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
Now Esau is identified with a root and it’s a root of bitterness. And bitterness is an evil just like we have the love of money being the root of all evil. We know that in Obadiah, Obadiah clearly says out of the Mount of Esau chapter 1 verse 8, shall it not in that day saith the Lord even destroy the wise men out of Edom and the understanding out of the Mount of Esau. Esau wait a minute let’s see what it says in that day He’s gonna destroy the understanding out of the Mount of Esau. What is the Mount of Esau then? And thy mighty men of Teman and shall be dismayed to the end of everyone; let me back up.
Let me back up to verse 7 in Obadiah, all the men of thy confederacy have brought thee even to the border, the border of what? To the border of Israel. The men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee and prevailed against thee they that eat thy bread have laid a wound under thee there is none understanding in him. Shall I not in that day saith the Lord even destroys the wise men out of Edom, by the Edom was where Esau’s children lived at. And understanding out of the Mount of Esau, now Esau’s identified; and thy mighty men of Teman shall be dismayed to the end that every one of the Mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter. For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee and thou shalt be cut off forever. Wait a minute, for thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee and thou shall be cut off forever, well there is no place where we see that Esau himself did any evil to his brother when his brother came back in he accepted him with open arms.
At first he’s seen to come down with vengeance but then Jacob prevailed and became a Prince with God and he found grace in the sight of Esau right? It’s a spirit that moves down, it’s a root, it’s a root of bitterness because Esau’s descendants are still bitter against Israel. They’re still bitter against Jacob.
Watch what he says; verse 10 for thy violence against we read that one. (Obadiah 1) Verse 11 in that day thou that thou stoodest on the other side in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces and foreigners enter into his gates and cast lots upon Jerusalem even thou was as one of them. Wow, now wait a minute; now that’s putting Esau his descendants at the time of what? At the time when Yeshua was here 2,000 years ago; at 70 AD wait a minute I thought that David and Saul killed all Esau’s descendants?
According to the scripture in 2 Kings all but one Hadad, Hadad escapes he’s just a young child. He’s taken down with some of the others; he is of the royal seed of Esau. He’s raised in a House of Pharaoh as a Prince of Egypt, interesting just like Moses isn’t it? See Moses was a type of Christ, the True Messiah. The Anti-Type has to follow the same pattern that the Messiah goes in. So the Anti-Type which the Anti-Christ of that day is Hadad who’s also raised in the House of Pharaoh. But instead of separating from Pharaoh he does separate he becomes the King of what? Syria, what do you know. But he never got rid of the idolatry. Moses forsook all the treasures and riches of Egypt to esteem to see him that was invisible Christ Mashiach, Yeshua but not Hadad.
He goes up he marries in because why? He’s already part Arabic in that part of the land anyway. He’s already been married into that, Esau did that it’s is kindred. He goes up there becomes the King of Syria later even Jewish historians track him his own descendants they go into Northern Africa across the channel into Rome and that’s where the descendants are.
And now the Bible tracks it as well because God puts the Mount of Esau in Rome. How do we know this? (Obadiah 1 verse 11) He says in that day thou shouldest not stand on the other side in that day that the strangers carried away his forces and foreigners entered into his gates and cast lots upon Jerusalem even thou was as one of them.
So we got to find out which one of them they are because we know that the Assyrians and of course the whole Babylonian Kingdom was involved so we did have Arabic forces attacking Israel just like their doing today. Just like Rome has all these relationships with all these Arabic Nations all around them and they just bow down and do whatever the Pope says. Now I know people say well their killing the Christians that are in those Nations the Catholic people that are living there that’s what you know you would get the argument about it. Rome doesn’t mind sacrificing some of their people to make it look good. You’d be surprised what they would do.
Notice what he says next verse 12 but thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother and the day that he became a stranger neither shouldest thy have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction. Now it’s clearly 70 AD the children of Judah; the House of Judah in the day of their destruction neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress. It gets even better, watch what he says thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity. Yea they shouldest not have looked upon their affliction in the day of their calamity nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity.
Now I realize that the Roman Catholic Church was not built in 70 AD when Titus the Roman General was there. But clearly the Ark of Titus that is in Rome today that depicts the Temple Treasures were carried back to what is called Modern Day Rome. They were carried back there; somewhere in those catacombs are the Temple Treasures the Menorah etc… So God identifies that though not just as Romans but as the descendants of Esau. So we clearly know that.
Now we go back now we’re looking at this other scripture here, not only is a root; see another part of that evil root happens to be lest any root of bitterness spring up and trouble you thereby and many be defiled lest there be any fornicator or profane person as Esau who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright that’s Hebrew 12:15. Now notice what he did. He sold his birthright. Why do you think that there is a love of money for Rome then? They’re trying to buy back what they sold.
Notice what else this says; verse 17 in Hebrews chapter 12 for you know how that afterward when he would have inherited the blessing he was rejected for he found no place of repentance though he sought it carefully with tears. So see as he’s sold his birthright he’s been trying to find a way to buy back God’s favor and he can’t do it. And God gave us a sign not to mention he shows you where Esau lives in Rome. He also speaks about how he will destroy them in Obadiah and other places as well. What it says again in 1st Timothy 6:10 for the love of money is root of all evil, all evil then has a root that is Satan it’ll be the Anti-Christ spirit and he has a desire or the love of money; which while some coveted after they have erred from the faith; show that he was part of the faith but erred. In other words he went away from the original gospel that Jesus Christ first spoke to His apostles and we got the corruption of Constantine and the Church and State Religion.
Which by the way the United States you’re about to come under Church and States Religion if you’re already 501C you’re already owned by the State anyway they own your Church and so you’re not gonna get to say a whole lot about anything in the first place but the Vatican controls the United States as it is. It is just something else but again we have another incredible passage that identifies where the root of all evil is and it’s with money.
And let me just share this with you if you want to know about money and Rome let me just share one of these things here with you. I looked at several articles but this a little short one for you. The Roman Catholic Church is almost certainly the wealthiest organization in the world. In the United States alone now this is; actually when I wrote the book Israel Are They Still God’s People I quoted from the Vatican and its Billions is a book there that talks about the wealth of the Vatican. But this is been updated since then it is estimated that the Catholic Church has an operating budget of 170 billion dollars comparison in physical year 2012 all right? Now that’s; by the way that’s only the United States 170 billion dollars. Apple and General Motors each had about 150 billion revenue world-wide. The Vatican I think in the book when I wrote about this the Vatican and its billions has more gold than all other countries in the world. There’s no country in the world that has more gold reserves than the Vatican does. The own stocks in practically every major corporation in the world, they’re revenues, their spending and not to mention their hard assets. In other words like all the gold figurines and stuff in their Churches around the world. They said it’s impossible to put a value on the Vatican it is so wealthy.
And we also see that the Vatican in bringing about a New World Order using NATO, their Allies, the United States by the way, the United States can fight outside of NATO, the Vatican uses them to conquer the world the way they need too. This is one reason why you see that this issue over Ukraine like we did in the report just the other day Russia wanted to be a part of the economic structure. And Russian even asked back in November of 2013 let’s do a negotiation over Ukraine and let’s share in the economic structure there. The United States said no they wouldn’t even allow them to come to the negotiation table unto after you know what 4,000 something people were murdered. There’s right and there’s wrong.
And clearly there’s been a lot of things been done wrong. Now the reason I bring up this part about Russia though is because the Mark of the Beast and this is what we’re gonna be getting into in this special report. The Mark of the Beast is an economic control; it’s an economic boycott of countries that’s what you’re seeing that Rome is doing now to the world. You see they didn’t want Russia a part of this economic system because Russia has not been conquered by the Vatican as of yet. The Pope of Rome has not gone to Russia so therefore they’re not conquered.
And until Russia becomes conquered by Rome Russia’s that’s why they got the sanctions on them. But what’s interesting is Israel is not co-operating in the sanctions. Israel is still doing business with Russia as normal. And yet Israel has been conquered by the Vatican but not the people. It’s the same thing in the United States, the people of the United States have not been conquered by Rome but the politics, the Governmental System has been conquered by Rome. That’s why you’re fixing to go under a major, major assault in the United States this is why you’re gonna see the huh, the Global situation completely change. They’re fixing to lock down America. They’re going to lock down what you can and cannot say. Freedom of religion will end. It’ll be no different than Russia at that point.
Anyway; I don’t want to get into that as of yet there’s so much that I can say and I want to say later. I just wanted to share this message with you because I thought it was just fascinating to see again another clear evidence that tells us where that Anti-Christ Spirit sits at. Where the Judas of today now I know a lot of people say he’s just the False Prophet you know let me just say this in closing. It has been a campaign by the Churches, the different denominational systems of today Baptists, Methodist, Pentecostals, Presbyterians those that have taught especially in the evangelical movement that have taught about the Anti-Christ.
There’s been a huge movement everybody keeps looking for this Anti-Christ to be some Arabic guy or some Prince Charles or some world leader, young charismatic guy to come along and this is how the Mark of the Beast will be implemented will be through him. Have you ever considered the possibility especially now that you see all these Churches that have put out this doctrine to begin with they’re all joining with Rome now? Even the Assemblies of God, I actually attended an Assemblies of God Church in South Florida I just found out today from a friend of mine that goes there that had been attending there for a long time there that they went had a meeting, the Assemblies of God had a meeting with Pope Frances and they have joined in and they have now starting to teach Catholic Doctrines within the Assemblies of God.
And the last one you’ll probably see do this will be the United Pentecostals because it’s a bigger barrier for them because of the way they believe in the oneness doctrine. They’re not Trinitarian so it’ll be harder for them to overcome but they’re gonna have to do it or they’re gonna loose everything or you just have to become completely out of all of it. And they would loose everything because even the United Pentecostals are 501C organizations they’re owned by the State. Now as I say this though all these Churches that you guys have been part of, I was part of as well at one time you’ve got to understand that they have been preaching to you that the Anti-Christ, False Prophet are 2 different people altogether. And that; and some of them they can’t even say that the False Prophet has anything to do with the Catholic Church because it’s against the 501C Corporations guidelines. The United States says if you say anything against the Vatican they can shut you down and take everything you’ve got. So they got to give you some other Anti-Christ idea and so they have brought that nonsense theology to your mind to get you to believe a lie. And it’s very good they’ve been very good at it but what’s gonna happen when they begin to start the New World Order?
The Pope of Rome is coming to the United States to speak to Congress, both houses of Congress; he’s coming to speak to the United Nations address the General Assembly there to kick off the One World Government. This is where your liberties will be changed; this is why the Churches are doing this come back home to the Catholic Church faith now. And it; on the outset of it, it maybe it looks like a great thing but they’ll come a time I can’t say to you the things I’m saying now without going to jail. They’re making it a crime right now the evangelical organization in America has been considered a terrorist organization that has been passed and the people that passed that right now are trying to make it a criminal offense for you to say anything against the Catholic Church.
Why do you think John Hagee joined up with them? Rick Warren, all these, you know a lot of these people were just Jesuits no doubt. I don’t think John Hagee was. But they face loosing everything they have many of them have very wealthy lifestyles, they’re gonna lose it all if they don’t give in. And the Mark of the Beast will come so simply you can’t buy or sell. Not just saving you take the mark do you know you can have the name or the number of the name? Hum, in other words if you’re Catholic it’s good enough you’re already part of the system that’s why he says come out of My people and be not partakers of her plagues.
Where does it say come out of the Anti-Christ and be not partakers of her plagues? The plagues strike the one that is the Anti-Christ system. And the Churches have been teaching you a lie so that when the time comes taking the Mark if you’re already looking for something else and it’s not here yet you’ll think that it’s not; that’s not the Mark of the Beast yet. Microchip maybe only facilitate this whole situation but maybe they don’t microchip everybody. You don’t have to be just microchipped you know? The Mark of the Beast, the number of his name or his name there’s more than one way the scriptures clearly got it right there for you.
Serious friends it’s very serious. God bless you I trust this is helping you somewhat, copy these messages please do. We know we don’t have much more grace in saying what we’re saying. We need your support there’s things we need to do to be able to get this message out further. I want to a duplicator like 10 where we can start making DVD’s our self but I just encourage you to do it share them with your friends everything you can because freedom of religion is coming to an end, it is coming to an end. Shalom. I’m Steven Ben-Nun with DeNoon Institute of Biblical Research, we love you.
