INSPIRATION FOR THE FAITHFUL
OF THIS TIME & THE END TIME
the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
My Beloved Brethren:
Many days have come and gone. Meanwhile,
the way of the world is blind to Truth. We bear witness that the ill-advised
efforts to rebuke the mission of the Truth-Seekers are a blind submission to
Satan. Our mission of Truth is based on faith thus the nay sayers make a
Hellish commentary as they record the sins of the multitudes. The thrones of
deceit and lies are man-made and hollow. However we are blessed today as
yesterday and on tomorrow to be filled with the Spirit of Truth. This Truth is
a clear inspiration in times of great trouble.
There is great inspiration in the following scripture:
Galatians 6:9. "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
6: 10. "As we have therefore
opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially them who are of the
household of faith."
Almighty Jehovah God never commands
us to do that which is impossible. Jehovah also does not forbid that which is
unavoidable. In this passage weary does not mean that the body will not get
weary or tired. Because it is a human response to become tired or fatigued.
This result is beyond our control. However weary is recorded here as pertaining
to the mind and not the body.
Therefore those that follow God will
never fall faint in the mind. They will always feel a burning desire to serve
God and speak the Good News of Jesus Christ. (Also see II Corinthians 4: 16).
We would be remiss here if we did not
note the prevalent corruption of the word reap and sow by the multitude of
False Prophets that many call Preachers. Reaping in ancient times consisted in
either pulling up the grain by the roots, or cutting it with a sickle. The
figurative usage of the term speaks of deeds that produce their own harvest
(See Proverbs 22: 8, Hosea 8: 7, and Galatians 6: 7-8).
Therefore, sowing has nothing to do with money. Nor does reaping have anything to do with money. God has nowhere in the Bible noted any parallels between reaping crops and gaining money neither from some deed nor from your Tithes and Offerings. This is a further lie told by the Prosperity Preachers who hold the sin of Tithes and Offerings as the Center-Piece of their Church Con-Game.
update 6 April 2008: We are required to give however as we live in the New
Testament times and the New Covenant we look to the heart not to works. Thus we
give as God has blessed us it can be 10%, 20% are whatever God has laid on your
heart. However to believe that you owe God a Tithe is a denial of Jesus Christ
who came and died for the sins of humankind thus removing the need for sacrificial
offerings and the Tithe. For the record Paul teaches about giving during the
times in which we now live. Read your Bible, Paul does not teach anything about
a Tithe because when Jesus went back to the Father the Tithe law under the Old
Law was removed.
Peace and Love,
