HARD TRUTH FROM PASTOR CLARKSON: DON’T GIVE TO CHURCH YET…
Pastor Clarkson is, a gospel music minister, preacher, blogger and author, shares balanced truth on the matter of giving to church, seed sowing and how God provides for his people. I stumbled on it somewhere, read it and it blessed me and decided to share it with you. With open heart, let’s welcome the man of God to Brojid.com lectan as he ministers on Money, Seed sowing and Reaping….a round of applause as he comes up…..
Over the years I have consciously stayed on a particular scripture knowing there has to be more to it, until not too long ago, light came!
2 Corinthians 9:10 happens to be a very popular verse of scripture that so many quote when all the money in their pockets run out and they would say:
‘He giveth seed to the sower and bread to the eater’ (Paraphrased)
Beautiful scripture but greatly twisted, because some folks have not opened up their heart to the illumination of the spirit
Some folks think it is saying, God will give me seed to plant and he will also give me bread to eat separately, so, they end up praying for Seed and Bread as separate but that’s so unscriptural!
God is saying here, ‘I give seed to you so that out of it you can make bread for your food, but know also that all things come from me’
God will never give you Seed and Give you bread separately, He gives the later in the former
Seed here is symbolic of CAPITAL for INVESTMENT, while BREAD is the outcome with which food is purchased
Some people receive Hundred thousand Naira today and boom! To run to sow it as seed in Church, hey! Thats the wrongest and most unscriptural thing to do!
God is saying to INVEST in a business that would yield returns and multiply.
Listen the church is not a business center, where you give hundred thousand naira today, and by the time you wake up the next day somebody comes to dash you One million, my friend be wise! Just because Someone gave that as testimony does not make it a natural occurrence, that fellow didn’t tell you how many calls he has made and all the people who promised to call back
Listen the church is not a business center, where you give hundred thousand naira today, and by the time you wake up the next day somebody comes to dash you One million, my friend be wise! Just because Someone gave that as testimony does not make it a natural occurence, that fellow didn’t tell you how many calls he has made and all the people who promised to call back
Listen to me God does not operate FOREX!
If you give YOUR seed (Capital) to church, all you get is,
‘And he that sits in the heaven will laugh’
and guess why he is laughing, he is saying in his mind,
‘this my son needs to learn’
Listen, I am not against GIVING in church, but, that’s not the divine plan of God to multiply money, the divine plan is TRADE and INVESTMENT
The plan is for you to Invest and when it starts yielding returns out of the abundance you would have enough to always give to the course of the kingdom and to Charity
When a certain man called some of his servants and gave one 2000 USD and another 5000 USD and so on, they didn’t take it to the temple and throw it there, no! They INVESTED and made profit, and out of the profit maybe they bought new cloths, helped some people, but surely the money had doubled, but One nasty fellow buried it and it didn’t make profit
Note the masters words (TLB),
‘Wicked man! Lazy slave! Since you knew I would demand your profit,
you should have at least put my money into the bank so I could have some interest’
Did you notice, the master is mindful of you making INTERESTS and notice he said, you would have at least put the money in the bank, not the CHURCH, I thought he would mention church but no!
Capitals don’t go to church, it is the proceeds from capital that goes to church. No matter how much you love God, he gave you capital for Business, keep your Isaac so it would produce JESUS, Jesus can die, but Isaac, no way!
I would show you some more tomorrow, but let me round off by showing you 2 Corinthians 9:10 from the LIVING BIBLE it says:
‘For God, who gives seed to the farmer to plant, and later on, good crops to harvest AND EAT, will make it grow so that you can give away more and more fruit from your harvest’
I hope this blessed you
Have a Nice Day
