Participating in the Great Commission Jesus Mandated us to Fulfill, with the resources HE gave us….. each of us doing our part. …and Yes, WE, YOU are in that war and commanded to “fight”. It’s a battle for the eternal souls of men for whom our LORD Jesus came to die (Luke 19:20; 1 Timothy 1:15). Let’s roll saints!
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:12
Each of us and blood-bought members of Christ’s body, are co-laborers with our LORD and His beloved people.
“WE are labourers TOGETHER with God.” 1 Corinthians 3:9
As the body of our LORD Jesus Christ, we are His standing army in the earth (2 Timothy 2:1-4).
“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.” 2 Timothy 2:2-5
And we wonder why America is under judgment when those claiming to know and love the Savior don’t support His work. HOW does that look to the lost when the “FEW” “labourers,” the ministries Jesus has sent forth have an empty bank account? Wonder no more why America is spiraling downward.
HOW a Gospel outreach that is now reaching over 6k people daily (on ministry website alone) with God’s Word can go days and sometimes weeks without a single online donation, seems a bit shocking! Wow. Bibles, Christ-centered Scripture-rich books going forth, poor being fed, prisoners receiving Gospel resources, etc. Just going to keep doing HIS work and hope more others who claim Christ will participate. What’s 1 John 3:18 say?
Every Disciple who participates in our LORD’s work, in any fashion – either front line fighting or fueling, supplying the Gospel workers – will be rewarded by God equally!
“For who will hearken unto you in this matter? but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike.” 1 Samuel 30:24
Clue: If God-called ministers were independentantly wealthy, that would rob you of the opportunity to participate and be blessed by doing so. Selah.
The Harvest Is Plentiful, the Laborers Few
“And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:35-38
Jesus says “Where your treasure is there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21). Band aids are in vain, fully futile – no different than trying to use tape to patch a hole in a sinking ship. True repentance is needed. God is calling you to repent and put your money where your mouth is. And, when you do, you are doing no one a favor except yourself. Stop calling yourself a follower, a disciple of Jesus until you demonstrate such in real deeds!
“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62
“Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” Isaiah 2:22
WHEN conservative political organizations are receiving millions in support and the work of God pennies, there it is…. that’s exactly the problem – where those claiming to know and love Jesus waste the resources He’s giving them on the temporal, with utter futility attempting to band aid a huge hole in a sinking ship.
“Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.” Matthew 19:21
All who don’t see Christ’s kingdom work as the ultimate investment are blinded, are walking in darkness.
You see, we have few, very few who run to invest, who sprint to be vested in the support of the LORD’s work, which is the only eternal work in the earth. If we have an iota of kingdom wisdom this is what we will do – we’d be jumping in, we’d be jockeying to be the one to supply, to support the further reach into humanity of the preaching of our LORD’s Word. All else is waste. Is the LORD calling you to a place of fresh repentance, refreshment, obedience, and blessing?
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
If you like your ears tickled instead of your heart and life rebuked with truth, this is not the ministry for you. If you want to be seduced by lies and sent off the cliff into the lake of fire irrevocably, please find one of the “MANY false prophets” Jesus warns us about who are deceiving “MANY” (Matthew 24:11).
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4
If you are truly with Christ you will support the teaching and preaching of HIS Word (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15). Such was and is the primary ministry of Christ and His holy apostles, of His kingdom workers today.
Here we are, in the first days of this new year. What a great opportunity lies before us as we live for and unto Christ, looking for the soon return of our blessed Savior from Heaven!
“Only one life, will soon be passed, and only what’s done for Christ will last!”
Be it known that you – yes you – can make a huge difference, an eternal impact for the glory of God!
To say that it’s frustrating to continue to have to say the ministry needs solid support is a great understatement. I am just one man and can’t do everything. Sorry brothers and sisters, I simply cannot work 40-60 hours on God’s work and simultaneously work a secular job to support the work of God which I did for decades. Now it’s full time in the only eternal work transpiring on the earth. And, regrettably that work is not funded.
Can we imagine what would happen if the individuals (you) reading these very words were as serious, as deliberate about putting money into God’s work as they are about paying their monthly bills in this fleeting world? (some spending which has zero eternal value)
Are we putting God or self first?
“Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the FIRSTFRUITS (not second, first) of all thine increase: 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.” Proverbs 3:9-10
WHO is going to be “first” this year in your life? Who? God or you?
Having unwarranted, unnecessary lack is a hindrance to God’s work. What would happen if there were fuel in the tank, no more sleepless nights, fretting if the bills were going to be paid in a ministry outreach that is reaching thousands?
It’s unfathomable how this ministry outreach is ministering God’s Word daily to thousands and tens of thousands per month with a mere 8-10 who support it. This is incomprehensible. God be praised for those faithfully supporting HIS work.
Today the podcast bill came through the account and left the ministry acct at $52.55 in it. Oh and over 41,000 podcasts have been downloaded already since September.
As we speak I have a tech working on something on the site and don’t know how he’s going to get paid.
Is this what we think of God’s work?
If those naming Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior were supporting HIS work, would this email have ever had to be sent out?
This is about the LORD. What is your true allegiance to the nail-scarred risen Savior who saved and sent you to participate in accomplishing His Great Commission command? (Read Matthew 28; Mark 16.)
Yet don’t pity anyone except those who sit there and do nothing to support the work of the God they claim to love and serve. If we have money for coffee, soft drinks, candy, entertainment, etc., and aren’t putting God first, aren’t putting our money where our mouth is, what’s that say of us? Are we going to be real or fake? (See Romans 6:16; Titus 1:16.)
Is this the year, the day, you are going to begin doing your part in Christ’s kingdom work? Is this your day to take action? – to be a DOER of His Word and not just a hearer only? (See James 1:22.)
This outreach is in need of a minimum of $3,000 monthly to begin functioning properly. How much of that amount are you going to take personal responsibility for? This is GOD’s work and each of us can only do our part and yet we must do our part. God is watching and will bring us into judgment for it (Matthew 25, etc.).
Are you praying for Christ’s “labourers” He instructed us to pray that the Father would send forth? (Matt. 9:35-38)
How shall His ministers do HIS work except they be sent and supplied?
“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10:14-15
It is our privilege to fund God’s work with what He’s given, and is giving us (1 Chronicles 29:14). The way we spend our money is a direct reflection of the priorities of our heart (Matthew 6:19-24).
When you lay your head down this night, are you going to be clear in conscience having spent all your money on self? Having told God “No I won’t surrender my heart and therefore life and resources to You! I won’t put You first!”
If not you, then who?
The natural man’s inclination is to say “But How are We Going to Make it?” And we should ask ourselves, “How have we made it this far?” God.
“They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. … I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” Psalms 37:19, 25
God will never suffer His people, who are givers, to suffer hunger. Want to prep for the future? Give cheerfully.
“But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: 9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever. 10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) 11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-11
YOUR PRAYER: Holy Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ, asking You to forgive my vile sin of self-idolatry, which caused me to feed the god of self. I here and now acknowledge this for the sin it is, that it is the soul damning idolatrous worship of self instead of You. Please wash me afresh by Thy precious blood dear LORD Jesus and unite my heart to fear Thy name LORD. Break me. Strip me. Cleanse me. Use me. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
