Debt, Debt and more Debt
Government’s in Debt. We’re in Debt. Companies are in Debt. What is all this debt? Isn’t the government for the people, by the people and of the people? When they say the GNP, isn’t that an account of all businesses in this country? I know there were people who went thru the great depression, who saved money for a rainy day. Well has the rainy day come? Have we used our rainy day fund and now what? What happened to all the money that was saved up over the last 20-30 years. Or was that what “Just In Time Production” was all about? You only produce what you will need in the next 3 months. Manufacturing models become the norm in society?
I am a born-again believer, not of a particular denomination, but whatever the Bible says is what I go by. So, I look to the Bible first before I make any major decisions. No, any decision.
My hardest part of becoming prosperous was seeing myself wealthy. Me, I finished college with a BS in Math. I had good beginnings. My dad was prosperous. He believed in tithing, and regular church attendance. I just thought I was special, because very few kids in my classes, when I was growing up, had their fathers in their life. His parents were prosperous, believed in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and helped start a church in Los Angeles. There were many other prosperous African-American parents who were doctors and lawyers, professionals. How could my dad, a car salesman be prosperous without a college education or a trade? Because he was a tither, and he knew God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit? I think so. I’ve been reading the book, Money Cometh! To the Body of Christ, by Dr. Leroy Thompson, Sr and according to Dr. Thompson, tithing and giving to the Gospel is God’s Way of getting money to you.
Isaiah 55:1 says Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing]. How can you buy without money? Here you are buying a priceless commodity when you accept Jesus as your Savior. When Jesus died, on the cross all of our sins were laid upon him, he was sin-less. He paid the price for all of us with His Death.
God created us. God is always with us. All of the names of God give you the characteristics of God. Wasn’t it Jesus, who fed 5000 men with 5 fish and 2 loaves of bread? How did he do that? So many gurus don’t have the slightest idea how? God sent Jesus to this earth so we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly. Double words again, it’s not enough for you to have an abundance, God wants you to have more abundance. WE SERVE A BIG GOD.
My pastor, yesterday was talking of Lordship, and this ties in where you have to make Jesus Lord over your life, not just Saviour, in order to be under His umbrella. God is Good.
