6-15-2013- GIVING TO THE POOR IS GIVING TO GOD


PROVERBS 19: 17 = HE THAT HAS PITY ON THE POOR, LENDS TO THE LORD; AND THAT WHICH HE HAS GIVEN, WILL HE PAY HIM AGAIN.


"REMARKS"

THIS SCRIPTURE IS SO VALUABLE TO ANYONE WHO NAMES JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR AND CALLS GOD, YAH'WEH, THEIR FATHER IN HEAVEN. WHY? BECAUSE IT IS COMMANDED BY JESUS, YAH'SHUA, TO GIVE TO THE POOR.

WHEN WE GIVE TO THE POOR, WE GIVE UNTO GOD, YAH'WEH, BECAUSE HE HAS AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE POOR AND THROUGH HIS SON, JESUS, YAH'SHUA, WHO HIMSELF WAS POOR, DISOWNING HEAVEN, FOR THE WRETCHEDNESS OF THIS WORLD, AND SUFFERED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, AND DIED FOR OUR SINS, AS A POOR MAN.


MATTHEW 19: 21 = JESUS SAID TO THE RICH MAN, IF YOU WILL BE PERFECT, GO AND SELL ALL THAT YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR AND YOU WILL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN: AND COME AND FOLLOW ME.


I HAD A GREAT WITNESS TO THIS SCRIPTURE YESTERDAY AT THE WAL MART IN THE ENNIS AREA, WHERE I WAS DOING A GOSPEL CONCERT AND AN AFRICAN AMERICAN MAN IN A WHEELCHAIR AND HIS 3 SMALL BOYS APPROACHED ME FOR $35 TO STAY IN A MOTEL ROOM THAT NIGHT. WELL I SAID TO HIM, I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU $35 TO STAY IN A MOTEL ROOM WHEN YOU CAN STAY ANYWHERE BECAUSE THE WEATHER IS OK TO BE OUTSIDE AND YOU NEED MONEY MORE FOR FOOD AND CLOTHES. THIS HAD PUT DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT HE WASN'T USING HIS MONEY CORRECTLY AND I BELIEVED HE REALLY WASN'T GOING TO USE IT FOR THAT.

WELL THIS MAN I HAVE SEEN AROUND AND HIS KIDS ARE VERY UNRULY AND HAD BEEN AROUND ME LAST WEEKEND AND WERE MORE AND LESS PESTS AND I COULDN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE TAKING WHATEVER THEY COULD FIND. I DIDN'T REALLY BELIEVE THE MAN BUT I GAVE THEM $20 TO BUY HOPEFULLY FOOD AND WHATEVER THEY NEEDED.

THE PROBLEM NOWADAYS, IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE PEOPLE ANYMORE WHETHER THEY ARE TELLING THE TRUTH OR NOT. AND A LOT OF PEOPLE USE KIDS TO GET WHAT THEY WANT, LIKE THE PRESIDENT WITH GUN CONTROL.

OUR DUTY IS TO GIVE TO THEM AND LET THE PUNISHMENT OF GOD, YAH'WEH, BE UPON THEM IF THEY ARE LYING. 

I DON'T GIVE TO ORGANIZATIONS WHO HIRE MANY PEOPLE, AND BUILD FANCY BUILDINGS, AND HAVE FANCY CARS, TO SQUEEZE OFF MOST OF THE MONEY THAT IS SUPPOSED TO GO TO THE POOR, I WON'T DO IT.

I WILL GIVE FROM MY HAND TO THE POOR'S HAND, ANYTIME I SEE, OR MEET ONE.

ANYWAY, ON WITH MY WITNESS. AS I WAS SINGING A WOMAN CRAWLED OVER THE RAILING AND CAME AND HANDED ME A $20 BILL AND I GAVE HER A FREE CD. AS I WAS PUTTING THE MONEY IN MY BAG, I NOTICED ANOTHER $2O BILL IN MY BAG, I HAD NOT FOUND FROM THE TERRELL WAL MART STORE LAST SUNDAY. SO HERE I AM, I DOUBLED WHAT I GAVE TO THE POOR AND WAS BLESSED TO GIVE TO THE POOR.

THIS IS HOW GOD DEALS WITH THOSE WHO GIVE TO THE POOR. TRY IT SOMETIME AND YOU WILL FIND GOD FAITHFUL TO REWARD YOU BACK FOR YOUR GENEROSITY TO THE POOR.
