$FOLLOW THE MONEY$
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21
If we truly want to get honest and see where our hearts really are, all we have to do is look at where we are choosing to place the resources God has temporarily placed in our care.
Christ’s true called-out “labourers” that He told us to pray for… go out day after day regardless of not being supported. They can only do their own part in he Great Commission Christ gave His body. Would to God there were a few more surrounding each of those “labourers” of Christ who were just as disciplined and obedient to the LORD … who would support those Jesus has sent forth! Matthew 9:35-38)
Are you truly supporting the Gospel? Or, are you wasting what God gives you?
So you have money in the bank or other investments while believers go without? How are you going to explain that to Jesus who gave all … and gave into your possession those things He is holding you personally responsible for rightly stewarding?
—WHERE O WHERE did the money go in the early church???? is it Time to get our giving biblical and cease being a supporter of waste and the spread of a false form of Christianity?. …. FOLLOW THE MONEY in the early church and then in the modern church … nearly all of the money today is directed and spent by one or a very few men!
“And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. 34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.” Acts 4:32-35
My recent letter to a pastor: “Pastor: God is calling you to live the message of the cross. When you do, you will cease with the additional building program and begin building His body. Read Acts 2:44-45; 4:32-35 …. There are many called to ministry who are unfunded and many saints in need and you are bragging about having $4 million in the bank and are raising millions more. There were NO needs among the saints of the early church.”
THERE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GO AROUND AMONG THOSE CLAIMING TO BE CHRIST’S. WHY then are so many believers in need? Is someone stealing the LORD’s and His people’s money? Were there any unmet needs in the early church? Find out here. New Testament Distribution Audio. Life Changing. A Must-Listen.

New Testament Distribution: Ever wonder if monies are being squandered and misappropriated in the church world? Listen to this and let’s see what the Scriptures reveal as far as how the earliest New Testament believers treated the money given.
IT IS my personal opinion that the LORD is leading me to get a vision for the monies the LORD is going to bring through my life through my work. Yes, a biblical vision (which is where we get His vision) to further HIS eternal kingdom by giving forth the first portion of all He brings to my hands (Proverbs 3:10-11). This is quite consoling as doing the truth always is. See Deuteronomy 8:18. I believe God is glorified in this and that this simple preparation sets in place a “distribution” system that will glorify the LORD (Acts 4:35; 2 Corinthians 9:13). Otherwise, we never get around to doing what is right in His holy eyes.
“But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God (before and when you get paid): for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18
The reason the LORD prospers us is not to get a vision for a bigger home or more expensive vehicle that we don’t need or for other things that hold no eternal value. He gives us the ability to prosper financially in order to get His Word into the hearts of men.
—– THE ORGANIZED collection of revenues is not wrong – it’s biblical actually. Yet, the distribution of those funds is what is important. “Now concerning the COLLECTION for the saints (all of them not just the elders), as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.” (1 Corinthians 16:1-2) As we read here, each believer should set aside a certain portion of what God has blessed them with that week. Because of the abuse of people and money by greed-driven wolves, many today have stopped funding those hireling beguilers and yet so many have no orderly, deliberate giving program. That’s not good. The “I’ll get around to it” mentality always leads to omission. We also see this principle taught throughout Scripture, including in Proverbs 3:9-10: “Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”
