It Is More Blessed To Give Than To Receive
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,
It is with a heavy heart that I write today. I believe I have a word from the Lord Himself to His church. If you ignore it, it is at your peril, as unlike Eli who refused to chastise his sons I must obey Him who sent me. I have a burning in my heart to bring this message to you.
Where has the heart of My people gone? Have you hardened your heart as in the rebellion? You have seen down through the centuries where I have brought My church. There is an inconsistency in the things you do. You are more interested in what you can get than what you can give. My word says, it is more blessed to give than to receive. I do love to bless My children but unfortunately many of My children have become selfish. It was never My desire to see the poor begging for bread and the rich living in palaces. Much of what you do is to satisfy your own bellies. You are crying for revival but revival comes to My house first. So I would urge you all to repent and come back to the true gospel. I have left you a record, My word. I would suggest you study it.
Over the past few years my spirit has been very disturbed by the selfish attitude of the people of God. We are more apt to have another holiday, a bigger car, an extension on our house, and the list goes on, and we call this Christian, godly living when there are people in other parts of the world who are looking for their next bowl of rice, mission societies having to bring their people back off the mission fields for lack of money. If you check the statistics you will find many mission societies through these years of austerity cutting back for lack of resources. Then we hear about people buying Cessna jets and multi-million-pound estates in the name of Jesus. Unfortunately I cannot see this in the gospels. Paul was a Pharisee, he was probably very rich, but when he met Jesus on the road to Damascus he gave it all up. Matthew was a tax collector, Luke was a doctor. These men gave up family, home, everything for the sake of the gospel. Where have all these values gone in the church today? Our attitude to missions is we put a few pounds in the offering and we think we have done our bit. Sadly, my brothers and sisters, that is not the fact.
I suggest you search your hearts. Please do not shoot me. I am just the messenger. Just one thought: I do not believe there is any lack from God; I just believe there is far too much greed in the kingdom of God. Please think about it.
