GAMBLING IS A SIN (by benaiah juma).
Pro 28:8 He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
Gambling is a sin and it’s a big one guys. God hates it. Gambing is against the will of God and offensive towards Him. There is no short cuts for making money, if you want to make money you will have to work for it because it is a commandment from God. God commanded man to work in the book of Genesis because it is a punishment for the sin which happened in the garden of Eden. Because of sin and lack of repentance man was chased out of the garden of Eden and commanded to work for his food. Man had to sweat so as to put food on the table. Man was told to go and till the land. Even today man is still commanded by God to work for his money. The word of God tells us that if a person does not want to work that person should not eat. Gambling is not work, gambling is trying to make money quickly through short cuts and by unjust means.
2Th 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
You have to get paid by doing a job that is relevant to human lives and a job which pleases God and makes this world a comfortable and a better place to live in. Works that offend God and make the world a terrible place to live in will bring judgment to the perpetrators. Works like selling alcohol in the bars, selling indecent attires, aborting babies, selling cosmetics, selling artificial hair, prostitution, selling pornographic materials, pornographic magazines, immoral music, immoral movies, shaving people ritualistic hair cuts are not permitted by the king of kings and lord of Lords but works of necessity are allowed by our creator. If you try to increase your profits or get money by unjust means and through short cuts, you will get curses rather than blessings from God. God is a terror to evil works but a rewarder to good works. Do good deeds and you shall have praise of the same, but do not do evil, for those who offend God shall recieve to themselves damnation.
Rom 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
Gambling is definitely bringing demons into your body, that is why you find out that the people who love gambling develop a gambling addiction. Even though they keep losing this games in the gambling pools, they keep on gambling because there is a spirit behind gambling. Demons enter peoples lives through gambling. Once you get into gambling habit you will not easily overcome it unless you have the power of Jesus Christ in you. These gambling demons push you to continue gambling because they know as long as you keep on gambling you are not going to heaven you are going to hell if you die without repenting. If you gamble unrepentant you are not going to heaven you are going to hell.
Gambling has destroyed a lot of people's lives. Some people have been reported to hang themselves after losing a lot of money after gambling. Some of the losers suffer depression and frustration after losing the game. These gambling games also make the participants to be criminals. People who work for their money and loose it in gambling pools may feel discouraged to working for more money and they may end up robbing others to retrieve the money that they worked for which was lost in the gambling pools. This generation has been brainwashed to think that this gambling games are okay. This generation is very gullible than the earlier generations. They literally believe anything and embrace anything that the devil has to offer. People in this generation do not engage in activities because of wisdom but they are engaging in activities that are contrary to the will of God because they saw other people doing it, they are doing it so as to fit in the crowd.
Remember that our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ told us that friendship with the world is enmity with God and whoever chooses to make himself or herself a friend of the world is an enemy of God. Even people who call themselves Christians talk about gambling games at the pulpit and encourage others to participate in gambling games. Some crazy pastors even may pray for their followers so that they win this gambling competitions. In other words they are asking God to bless something that offends Him and a deed that is an abomination before Him. They are asking God to bless a sin that is leading them to hell. Demons rejoice and laugh at this people. Demons laugh at fools and take pleasure when foolish people offend God. Take the narrow path which leads to life, for broad is the way which leads do destruction. Anything that you do that does not give you joy but rather brings destruction in your life is of the devil. Anything that comes from the devil in the long run will turn out to be hazardous.
Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Gambling is a sin, if you have been gambling repent of your sins, or if you have thinking about gambling do not do it because it is a snare for your soul. Gambling is satan's trap for you, just like the way satan is using lascivious women with the attire of an harlot to cause men to lust and stumble is the same way he is setting up many gambling pools to lead souls down to destruction and death. You have to be very careful of the things which are highly promoted in the world today because they are of the devil. All this gambling pools are of the devil. Do not gamble, work for your money.
If you have been gambling, it is never too late to repent because you have not gone too far. Jehovah is a God of the living, He will gladly forgive any gambler who repents with a humble and contrite heart. Unfortunately those who die in this sin, thinking that gambling is a way to make money will receive to themselves damnation. Repent if you have been gambling and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to wash you with his precious blood. Unrepentant gamblers are burning in hell. If you want to make money work for it because it is the will of God.
Gen 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Gen 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
