Nuggets of Fire Proof Investments
1. Investment in the Kingdom of Yahweh is a heart issue. You must have a single heart, not a divided heart, to give properly, or profitably, into the Kingdom. You must have the eye of the tiger.
Yeshua taught in Matthew 6:19-24, “Do not treasure up for you treasures on the earth, where moth and rust cause to corrupt, and where thieves dig through and steal. 20But treasure up for you treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust cause to corrupt, and where thieves do not dig through and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22The lamp of the body is the eye. Then if your eye is pure, all your body is light. 23But if your eye is evil, all your body is dark. If, then, the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! 24No one is able to serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and he will love the other; or he will cleave to the one, and he will despise the other. You are not able to serve Yahweh and wealth.”
Yeshua states plainly that you cannot serve Yahweh and your wealth. Your heart must be singly focused on building and investing in the Kingdom of Yahweh.
So, how do you lay up treasures in Heaven? Heaven is in the Spirit realm. How do we transfer financial investment from this earthly realm into the spiritual realm? Do not miss this, for this is a foundational key to making fire proof investments into Yahweh’s Kingdom.
One way is to give to poor people who cannot pay you back anything in this life. When you throw a party, invite the poor, the disabled, the widow, orphan, and homeless. You have just invested into your financial future in the Kingdom of Heaven. Yeshua taught in Luke 14:12-14, “. . . When you make a dinner or supper, do not call your friends, nor your brothers, nor your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also should invite you in return, and it become a repayment to you. 13But when you make a banquet, call the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; 14and then you will be blessed, for they have nothing to repay you. For it will be repaid to you in the resurrection of the just.” You will be resurrected into the eternal spiritual realm, where you will receive your Reward Of Inheritance (R.O.I.) in the Kingdom.
Yeshua also taught us through this true story in Luke 18:18-25, “And a certain ruler asked Him saying, Good Teacher, what may I do to inherit eternal life? 19But Yeshua said to him, Why do you say Me to be good? No one is good, except One: Yahweh. 20You know the commandments: “Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother.” 21And he said, I have kept all these from my youth. 22And hearing these things, Yeshua said to him, Yet one thing is lacking to you: sell all, as much as you have and give to the poor; and you will have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow Me. 23But having heard these things, he became very sad, for he was exceedingly rich. 24And having seen him becoming very sad, Yeshua said, How hardly those having riches shall enter into the kingdom of Yahweh! 25For it is easier for a heavy rope to go in through a needle’s eye than for a rich one to enter into the kingdom of Yahweh.”
The other way is to give to ministers or ministries that are doing Yahweh’s work on this earth, preaching the Gospel and making disciples of Yeshua. Mark 12:41-44, “And sitting down opposite the (Temple) treasury, Yeshua watched how the crowd threw copper coins into the treasury. And many rich ones threw in much. 42And coming, one poor widow threw in two lepta (which is a kodrantes). 43And having called His disciples near, He said to them, Truly I say to you that this poor widow has thrown in more than all of those casting into the treasury. 44For all of them gave from their abundance, but this one cast in from her poverty. She had cast in everything that she had, all her goods!”
The rich gave 1/10 or 1/100 of a percent of what they had, but this poor woman gave 100% of what she had. We owe Yahweh at least 10%, as a tithe, but you are free to give up to 100% of what you have.
