Topic: CLEARANCE FOR 2022 ….part 6.
Text: 45: 3.
3: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
( Our site has been down due to upgrade for security reasons, but we are fully back now) Many people do not understand the subject of ‘ riches and wealth ‘. There are two schools of thought; some people feel Christians should only have sufficient to run their lives and fulfill their destinies while others believe God will make them very rich.
The bible can help us find the stand of God on this subject; at what instance does God approve wealth and what point does he disapprove of it?
Isaiah 45 what was directed to King Cyrus; a man who was ready to do the will of God? A king who order that the house of God in Jerusalem be rebuilt. How do I know? Ezra 6:3 “In the first year of King Cyrus’s reign, a decree was sent out concerning the Temple of God at Jerusalem. “Let the Temple be rebuilt on the site where Jews used to offer their sacrifices, using the original foundations. Its height will be ninety feet, and its width will be ninety feet.
He was set to fulfill the will of God, supporting the course of God’s kingdom, and this will involve money so, there was need for riches and wealth to be committed into his hands. So, God needed to give to him the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places.
I don’t know if you have seen this passage before? Look at it here: Psalms 112:3 They themselves will be wealthy, and their good deeds will last forever. This is referring to a righteous man. This is a man that supports a righteous course. Someone who spends the riches and wealth to glorify God and advance his kingdom.
Why will God commit so much wealth into the hands of a man? If he has seen that he will use the wealth to glorify him.
WHY ARE SOME UNBELIEVERS RICH? (I mean those whose source of wealth are clean)
Here is the answer? (The bible has answer to every question, but it takes inspirations of the Holy Spirit for you to understand) Isaiah 45:4 For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.
5: I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me. Please take note of the last sentence in the two verses ‘ THOUGH THOU (YOU) HAST NOT KNOWN ME ‘ This shows King Cyrus has not known God at this time, but was ready to do the will of God.
Can I shock you? The Cyrus Cylinder, created in the 6th century B.C., is considered the first declaration of human rights. King Cyrus promotes human rights, he treated his subjects as his own children, he compelled no one to do nothing. He served the will of God.
Look at this; Ezra 1:4 Wherever this Jewish remnant is found, let their neighbors contribute toward their expenses by giving them silver and gold, supplies for the journey, and livestock, as well as a voluntary offering for the Temple of God in Jerusalem.” NLT. This decree was made by King Cyrus if you were God won’t you bless him?
Everyone who supports his course; expansion of his kingdom attracts riches and wealth to himself.
It will shock you to know that people who are outside church understand this mystery and they are blessed for it, while our age long members in church analyse giving and sowing.
Let me tidy up here by saying that God is committed to giving the measure of wealth required to keep your life and family, but he gives surplus when you are ready to spend the excess for the course his kingdom.
If it is difficult for you to give your tithe, he will commit wealth into the hands of him who gives more than his tithe to expand his course on Earth. God bless you.
* Make a commitment; tell him you will spend for the course of his kingdom.
