Why beg when all you need to do,is obey God’s word,
Matthew 6:8
“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. He is the supplier,distributer,and source of all your needs. God says,through prayer,supplication,and Thanksgiving let your request be made known unto Him(not people)as Philippians 4:6 suggest,or do as King David said,”I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,from whence cometh my help? My help cometh from the Lord,who made heaven and earth” {Psalms121:1-2} not people. It grieves me to see and hear bishops,pastors,preachers,and ministers of the gospel,beg for money,which means that they are not standing on God’s word and His promises,it also exposes their faith,trust,hope,belief,and confidence in God. Philippians 4:19 clearly states,”But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus”. Where did it says the people,or church members,so why are they stressing the people for donations,or sowing money into their ministry,instead of getting on their knees and speak to the supplier of all needs. Who,according as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue;by which are given unto us exceedingly great and precious promises,that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust…{2Peter1:3-4}. So why are they begging people? When, Psalm 23:1 says,”The Lord is my shepherd,I shall not want…”. Did I miss something here,it says the Lord is my shepherd,I shall not want,so why are these ,so called men of God,begging the people for money instead of God,our shepherd,our Jehovah Jireh. Is anything too hard for the Lord? God ask Abraham in Genesis 18:14. Then in Jeremiah 32:27 He said,”Behold,I am the Lord of all flesh;is there anything too hard for me? Then Luke 18:27 says,”..The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.What happen to what He tells us to do in Matthew 6:33 which clearly says” But seek ye first the kingdom of God,and His righteousness,and all these things shall be added unto you”. How about what Joshua 1:8 says,”This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth,but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein;for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous,and then thou shalt have good success”. Obviously the modern day bishops,pastors,clergy,leaders have stop begging,and seeking God,and has turn to the world for help instead of God,the Creator and Owner of everything. James 1:22 says,”But be ye doers of the word and not hearers only,deceiving your own selves”. Are these clergy deceiving themselves and the people they should be pastoring? God tells His children to give tithes and offering to show obedience to Him,but now,these men of God has put the demands to a level above Gods word. Where is the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit,Jesus prayed to the Father,not exploit the people,and turn two fishes and five loaves into a meal that feed thousands,with left overs. As Jesus said,in Matthew 19:26… “With men this is impossible,but with God all things are possible”. Jesus said,follow me and I will make you Fishers of men (Matthew 4:19). No where did it say Fishers of money. Are these folks connected to the vine? As John 15:5 points out,that without Jesus you can do nothing,except resort to begging. Which brings me to Matthew 7:21-25 “Not everyone that saith unto me Lord,Lord shall enter into the kingdom of heaven,but he that doeth the will of the Father. Many will say to me in that day,Lord,Lord,have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out demons? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them,I never knew you,depart from me,ye that work iniquity…..” Jesus did not trouble the people for money or anything,He ask God His Father. Therefore,these beggars,are known as pimps in the pulpit,who are prostitutes of their words and not God’s . Luke 12:22-32
Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? “And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
So my brothers and sisters in Christ as it says,in Ephesians 5:15-17,”See then,that ye walk circumspectly,not as fools,but as wise,redeeming the time because the days are evil. Wherefore,be ye not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is”. Lastly,as 2Timothy 3:1-7 says,”This I know,that in the last days perilous times shall come; for men shall be lovers of their own selves,covetous,boasters,……than lovers of God”. Jesus told Peter,”If you love me feed my sheep”(John 21:15-17) not exploit them for fame and fortune. Cry to the Lord,not the people,ask the Lord not the people. Psalm 72:12 says,”For He shall deliver the needy when he crieth,the poor also,and him that hath no helper”. Then John 16:23-24 ,Jesus tells us to ask in His name. Have you done so,as James 4:2-3 says,”you lust and desire,yet you have not,because you ask not,and receive not,because you ask amiss,that ye may consume it upon your lusts”. Is it money or souls? Is it for Jesus or you?
