How are you?
Good thank you.
Please also ask me: “How is your progress?”
The phrase “How are you?” has lost its essence, let’s get real and sharpen each-other by being more specific. Instead, you could ask me:
- How is your Relationship with God?
- Is your time alone with God increasing?
- What was the last thing that God told you?
- What was the last thing that you obeyed God with?
- Who did you brought to Christ lately?
- Who did you help to receive the Holy Spirit lately?
- When was the last time you got someone healed?
- When was the last time you casted out a demon?
- Where did you plant your last seed?
- Where is your next project starting?
These questions would produce more quality conversations.
We can all use a bit of extra accountability.
Why is your focus important?
After you finally entered certain levels in the spiritual realm, you get baptized in The Holy Spirit, you come out casting devils, healing the sick and raising the dead, you get your ministry credentials/tittle and your sent on your mission, there’s a hard lesson coming your way, it can cause you to crash if you have not been exposed to the correct wisdom. It’s the subject of finances. Expenses overwhelm you and you might start doubting God.. you might start pressuring your congregation and blaming them, you might start prostituting your anointing by ministering only if you get paid.. etc, This gives unbelievers more ground to distrust Christian Leaders, atheist now have a stronger case against you. “If your God is All Powerful, how come you are broke?” very valid question..
Deuteronomy 8:18 States God does NOT make you wealthy, instead He gives YOU the power to PRODUCE wealth.
Joshua 1:8 States God does NOT make you prosperous, instead He gives YOU the INSTRUCTIONS to make your own way Prosperous.
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.
2 Corinthians 9:6
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
So basically if you’re a true Minister of the Gospel and you’re truly broke, is not God’s fault, and He WILL NOT get you out of poverty.
It is YOU who needs to humble yourself and OBEY Him, take action to build wealth, work hard, stop being lazy, stop being a leach to The Kingdom of God, start receiving education on finances so you can PRODUCE, be FRUITFUL and than you will be able to MULTIPLY.
Do you take donations?
No, I do not personally take monetary donations, NOR my ministries solicit for donations, nor tithes, nor offerings, neither will we in the future
Do you get paid as a Minister?
No, I’m a volunteer. God blesses our businesses to supply for our household needs and for financing ministries.
Do you Tithe?
YES, we give our tithes and offerings to God through different Ministries around the globe who have proven to be fruitful soil and to people in need as God leads.
Should people Tithe?
YES, I do it and it works! The reason I’m blessed abundantly is because God always keeps His promises. One of my assignments is not to stop people from tithing, it’s to help leaders NOT to depend on their congregation’s tithes but in obeying God to be financially productive themselves.
Is it prideful of you not to accept donations?
- Certainly, there are those who won’t accept help even though they really need it.
- There are also cons who take advantage of people financially on “behalf of God”.
How is it humble?
Giving is the most humble action anyone could do.
Philippians 2:3 explains real humility is considering OTHERS more important than yourself. Settling with the egocentric phrase “just enough for me” is demonic ego disguised as humility, because it limits you to give only to yourself. When you PRODUCE and give to OTHERS, then you are truly humble. “Give me your offerings, so we can give to the needy” is an OXYMORON. There’s a third party leaching in between, posing as a charity broker. The real order is: I’LL be FRUITFUL and I’LL GIVE, most specially as a LEADER.
