SOLOMON MISSED IT BECAUSE HE BUILT ONE TEMPLE BUT BUILT 1000 SHRINES
SOME CHRISTIANS START WELL BY BUILDING CHURCHES BUT NEXT THING THEY START BUILDING CLUBS
MAKE SURE YOUR MONEY IS INVOLVED IN PROMOTING THE KINGDOM
PRAYERS AND FASTING WITHOUT GIVING IS OPERATING IN POWER WITHOUT RESOURCES
THE PURPOSE OF WEALTH IS TO PROMOTE GOD’S KINGDOM.
GIVING IS NOT THE PURPOSE OF WEALTH, GIVING IS THE ACCESS TO WEALTH
-Pastor David Ibiyeomie at Salvation Ministries Home of Success|
1st Service-Part 3
Listen, if you invest spiritually and you invest physically and you don’t have financial investment, according to one of our pastors who was taking offering he said “prayers and fasting without giving is like operating in power without resources”. You operate in power but you’re very broke, you will be greatly empowered but you will still be poor.
Please listen carefully, don’t deceive yourself, don’t say I don’t have. In your own little way Glory Reign is coming try to invest.
Make sure your money is involved in bringing a soul, if you’re at your lowest point, pay someone’s transport fare. Because, you don’t tell a new born baby to wait for you at the gate, how will the child get to the gate.
They just gave their lives to Christ, take your # 1,000 and say brother take this #1000 for your transportation for 5 days, God will look at you and say “you mean you can pay #1,000 for this person” at your level and God shifts you to #100,000.
At #100,000 level you hire a bus, you say this bus is free for all of you in my street to come for Glory Reign and the Lord will bless you with 5 buses, that is how to grow. Some people will say “God you know I don’t have” you will remain like that.
Those of us who God has blessed, you then think of how to build churches, how you can sponsor viewing centers, just make sure your money is involved. Buy tags and give to people, people bought tags yesterday to give to people, don’t wait and say the Church will give you, why don’t you give? That is the only way out of poverty and to have endless wealth, if the purpose of a thing is not known abuse is inevitable, the purpose of wealth is to promote God’s Kingdom.
Once you’re a promoter of the Kingdom you don’t need to pray, things will just keep going from one level to another.
How many of you will be involved with your finances? Now you will go for soul winning, you pray for the advancement of the Gospel also be a giver then it will be balance. I tell you; your prosperity will just keep booming. Before you open your mouth, the Heavens have opened, economy cannot stop you, pray for the advancement of his Kingdom, go out for soul winning and let your hand give at your level. Don’t say I don’t have; God knows that you have. Just give at your own level, make sacrifice at your level.
Two young men came to me and said sir, the Church is ready for Glory Reign. In Port Harcourt here and when I saw them, you will know that they went extra mile to make sure it happen. You know when people make sacrifice to make things happen.
There are some people if they build churches, it is not a sacrifice to them, because their sizes is bigger than the Church they are building, now when I saw these young men, I said these guys are doing extra things. Now, when such persons have a breakthrough tomorrow, you now start frowning your face. Watch those that frown their faces, they are stingy.
A person who is a giver will say thank God this is where I missed it. I have been praying for the Church to grow, I have been going out for evangelism, but my hand is not giving and they will say this is the remaining part.
Many of us we do the other two but we don’t do the giving part. Rise to your feet. Has anybody been blessed this morning? So that before they come, your own testimony is already here. There is something I am going to teach deeply during the Glory Reign, from my studying and also from deep revelation “the purpose of wealth”, giving is not the purpose of wealth, giving is the access to wealth and if the purpose is not known abuse is inevitable.
I stumbled into this deep revelation; do you know why Solomon missed it? Hope you know Solomon missed it? He knew about the access; he didn’t know about the purpose.
Solomon built one temple but built 1000 shrines, have you not seen Christian who started well? they build Churches the next thing you see is that they start to build night clubs, they don’t know the purpose.
Many know that giving can open the doors of wealth but they don’t know the purpose, how can a man build one church and build one thousand shrines, that means he had the money to build 1000 Churches but he didn’t know the purpose. Say “Lord I must be a giver and I receive grace to be a giver”.
Do this at your level, get the people on your street to be part of Glory Reign, go to that your village and start somewhere, start from where you are now if it is just one thousand you have now, set aside #500 for the Kingdom of God, are you getting it?
Don’t be thinking of the hair you will wear to officiate, think of what you will do for the Kingdom of God first. Some of us, we are planning uniform, you know it is so funny people are planning to promote the Kingdom while others are planning to take from people, if I hear that any group is to buy uniform and somebody is supplying that uniform you will tell me whether you’re the one God gave the vision to.
No service group should sell uniform, show them the Uniform and let them go and buy it.
This is an order, if you supply uniform here, you will be demoted, we are not here for you to trade with people, sow into the Kingdom. All service group; nobody supplies, everybody should go and get their uniform where they are selling it, just show them the Uniform.
Lift your hand and say father I receive grace to promote your Kingdom in Soul winning, Kingdom advancement prayer and today I have heard of giving. Pray that prayer for yourself in the name of Jesus.
