It really disturbs me to see how many people out there are peddling, selling, or prostituting God’s word for profit, when salvation is free. God sent, His only begotten Son Jesus, as payment for our sins, years ago. So my question is why are you peddling God’s word for financial gain?
2 Corinthians 2:17 tells us, let’s preach or teach the infallible word of God to save souls, not fill your pockets, to satisfy your own needs. I don’t mind donating to your ministry, but don’t tell me, how much to give, that’s God’s job. Trust me, if you are living in righteousness and you are walking with God like Enoch (Genesis 5:21-24) walked with Him, then God will let us know how much to donate to your ministry. Listen, it’s time to stop coaxing people to give $100 and $200 seed, just send the book, DVD or CD then allow God to manifest, and show Himself mighty. The God, I serve tells us in the Bible that, “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). Now, I must have a different Bible from all these folks, because the Jesus we follow tells us, “And whatever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My name I will do it” ( John 14:13-14). So why are you pressuring the children of God? We are obedient, we throw our tithes, and offerings, and most of us go the extra mile, and give more. So, what is the problem? Put on the belt of truth, and ask yourself, is personal fame and gain more important than God’s word? Is your request for donations more important than saving souls? Has your faith and trust in God deteriorated so low that you resort to selling His word for profit. Be careful, you don’t want to tell God, how many times you preach, and teach in His name, and He reply, “I NEVER KNEW YOU.”
We better start putting on the belt of truth, it’s better to hurt now, than burn later. We can’t love the things of this world, and love God (James 4:4), we can enjoy them, but not love it to a point it consumes and controls us. Let us decrease, so God can increase, and people can get saved. The only one who can save anyone is God, through Christ Jesus His Son. Do what God called you to do, and leave the rest to Him. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything else will be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
If you read this, and you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. It will be the best decision you ever make.
I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to put His message out there. I pray it will allow someone to change their life, and tactics, and allow God to lead, guide, and direct them down the right path, in Jesus Name, amen.
