SPIRITUAL INVESTMENT

People invest in everything ,from:stocks,bonds,relationships ,education,children,etc.
But what about a spiritual investment. What’s a spiritual investment? Time spent with God,in prayer,devotions,and meditation,which leads to obedience to His word.We all like to invest in our future, put away a little something for the rainy day, old folks used to say.

When you give,especially to God,He says,in Luke 6:38
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
A brother in Christ, introduced me to the investment of a life time. He opened my eyes to the fact, that our tithes, and offerings is our spiritual wall street, where God is our investor, and we will never require a bailout package, your spiritual bank will never belly up, or be bankrupt, your investment is safe and secure.

Heavens vaults holds treasures for us that moth nor rust can corrupt or contaminate it, and thieves  cannot  break into (Matthew 6:19-21), you are guaranteed a return on every heavenly investment,”Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and try me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” Wow! Listen it gets better,”And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy your fruits (Malachi 3:10-11). Now for all my financial geniuses, tell me who is better? The government try to bail, wall street out of it’s financial dilemma with a bail-out-plan, that failed. But Gods plan tells us to bring it to Him, and He will in turn open up the windows of heaven and pour onto us blessings. He also states that, He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19), seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything will be added unto me(Matthew 6:33), sorry my friends I would rather trust God. Labor not to be rich, cease from thine own wisdom, wilt thou set thine eye upon that which is not? For riches make themselves wings; they fly away like an eagle towards heaven (Proverbs 23:4-5). For we brought nothing into this world, and it’s a fact we can’t take nothing out (1 Timothy 6:7).

 I have never seen a vault behind a casque, we are buried in a vault but not with money. A tithe is a tenth of your income, while an offering is a sacrifice, that is ceremonially offered to God. Tithe is something you owe, and an offering is something that you give voluntarily.   

 Don’t ever be confused about who is your source, and supplier, it’s not your job, education, boss, spouse, or luck, it is God. If you look at the poeple on the currency you work so hard to get, most if not all the people are dead, depending on where you live, so you must conclude or concur that the money couldn’t save them.
REMEMBER :
The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
{Proverbs 10:21-22 }.

The only one who can save you is God through His only begotten son Jesus Christ of Nazareth (John 3:16-17,john 14 :6) do you know Him, if not go directly to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and you are on your way, trust me it is the best thing you ever did.

CHRISTIANAIRE

You have billionaires and millionaires who have all the riches this world can offer. We as Christianaires have all the riches heaven has to offer. What I love about all this is that the millionaires and billionaires die physically and leave everything behind, but when the Christian dies a physical death they will get to go and enjoy their riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

The millionaire or billionaire has to buy or build their own houses, but Jesus went to prepare ours. It says in John 14:1-3, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me (Jesus); In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you, I(Jesus) go to prepare a place for you; And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you will be also.”

Being a Christianaire is better than being a millionaire or billionaire because the Christianaire’s treasures, assets, or money is not upon this earth where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; it is layed up in heaven where it is untouchable (Matthew 6:19-21). Yes indeed, my friends we are in this world but not of this world, our heart, soul, mind and body is on heavenly things.

Proverbs 23:4-5 tells us not to labor to be rich, cease from our own wisdom, and stop setting our eyes upon perishable things, because riches make themselves wings and fly away like an eagle towards heaven. Then 1 Timothy 6:7 reminds us that we brought nothing into this world, and it’s a fact we can’t physically or otherwise take anything out. So now that you know this who do you think is better the Christianaire or the billionaire?

Who do you think has more riches? The person who serves the God of the universe or the person who serves the god of this world? Which do you prefer to have? Riches now and perish later or riches later and enjoy it forever?  The choice is always ours. When it comes to our life, either we live for Christ or die with the devil. Accept God’s special gift Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17) or perish.

TEMPTATIONS

Temptation is the hardest thing to overcome.

A bag full of $100 bills, was left by a guard on the sidewalk, and the armored car pulled off. What would you do? All your bills are overdue? The car broke down, you are hungry, about to be evicted, again what would you do? I already know, that the person who is not a Christian would take it and split, but if you are a Christian what would you do?  Would it be wrong to keep it? Would you think it’s an act of God to supply your needs? Would you pay or give 10% of it as tithe and offering?

Well to be honest with you, keeping it would be a sin. Honesty is always the best policy. You did not receive it as a gift, and you did not work for it, so that would be considered stealing. The three main temptations of sin has just presented itself to us:

The lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life (Luke 4:5-12). We always ask God, not to lead us into temptations (Matthew 6:13), so we shouldn’t have a problem turning the money in. It’s when we yield to the temptation that it becomes a sin, and a curse.

The Bible teaches us, “not to love the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2 : 15-17). Sorry, but I have to break it down for you. “The love of money is the root of all evil…” (1 Timothy 6:10).  “…you can’t serve God, and money.” (Matthew 6:24).

The Bible, clearly states, “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything will be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33); This one is the true answer, “But my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory, by Christ Jesus,” (Philippians 4:19) not your glory, or man’s glory, but His (God’s).

Yes, I know it’s a tough one. But that money would bring more misery than prosperity. Take a look at James 5:1-3, Proverbs 10:2, Proverbs 15:16 and Matthew 6:19-21. Now how do you feel after reading those scriptures? God is always faithful to deliver the Christian out of any temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13). That’s how good God is.

I give Our Heavenly Father, the glory, honor, thanks, and the praise for using me to share His message to us, I pray that He will keep, guide and lead us into His will, and ways, now, and forever in Jesus Name, amen.
