You should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. It is not written Every man, but Every spirit that confessed that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confessed not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come: and even now already is it in the world.

To gain wealth by vanity such as having to much pride in their own appearance, abilities,achievements is like the vanity in the bathroom before God. Real wealth's gotten through exerting one's power of body, mind, soul and spirit with diligent and painstaking effort is the spiritual way. Work or operate according to God's plan or design. Acquire the whole house which is the Kingdom of God. AMEN
