WHAT’S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN WITH YOUR GIVING?
WHAT’S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN WITH YOUR GIVING?
Let me be frank, this email is a fund raiser. I just want to share with you the Kingdom investment opportunity that we’ve been involved with for the last couple years. Pastor/Evangelist Raj Kishor Karada needs you as a partner with him in his ministry in India. Truthfully, it takes money to grow and sustain Yahshua’s ministries on earth. That money has to come through Yahshua’s believers.
Luke 6:38 HRB “Give and it will be given to you in good measure and pressed down and abundant it will pour into your robe in that measure. For the measure with which you measure, it will be measured to you.”
Ever heard that verse preached in a modern Christian church or on a TV preacher show? Did they ever give you some of the context of that verse? I want to share just a little of the context for Luke 6:38. For starters, Yahshua had just called His twelve apostles, and then began their first group lesson, on love, of course. Look at Luke 6:27-28 HRB “But I say to you, Those hearing: Love your enemies, do good to those hating you, 28bless those cursing you and pray for those insulting you.” Also, take note of Luke 6:35 HRB “But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, and do not cut off the hope of man; and your reward will be great; and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind to the evil and the cruel ones.”
Do you realize what these verses are saying? Even if you don’t like, even if you absolutely hate, a Christian minister and his or her ministry, you may still give financially into their ministry, AND YAHWEH WILL CONSIDER THAT YOU HAVE SIMPLY OBEYED HIS COMMAND TO LOVE YOUR ENEMY!! Friend, that is the WORST that can happen to your giving to someone you don’t know personally.
What if it turns out that the so-called Christian minister is a sinner just using you and others? Romans 12:20 HRB “Then “if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him drink; for doing this you will heap coals of fire on his head.”” Which is a quote from Proverbs 25:21-22 NKJV “If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; 22For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And Yahweh will reward you.” Is it soaking in yet? You can’t go wrong giving to Yahweh’s ministers or His ministries.
So why are Christian ministries suffering financially today? 2 Timothy 3:1-7 HRB “But know this, that in the last days disastrous times will be upon us. 2For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, braggarts, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, 3without natural feeling, addicted to lust, slanderers, without self-control, savage, haters of good, 4traitors, hasty, boasters, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Yahweh, 5having a form of righteousness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these. 6For of these are those creeping into houses and leading silly women captive, the ones having been heaped with sins, being led away by various lusts, 7always striving to learn, but never being able to come to a full knowledge of the truth.” It’s what some are calling today, HWC, or hearts waxing cold, as Yahshua stated in Matthew 24:12 HRB “And because lawlessness [Torahlessness] shall have been multiplied, the love of the many will grow cold.” Hard-hearted Christians do not please Yahweh or Yahshua, and simply are not obeying Yahweh’s commandments. Do you really need to examine a man’s vital records, his credentials, and maybe even search for possible criminal records, before you give into his ministry? Where’s your faith?
I’ve been walking with Yahweh for over 41 years now, and I’ve never asked anyone for financial support for my ministry. If you can recall that I did, please forgive me, that’s not my policy. I have and will continue to ask for financial support for other ministers and ministries.
Meditate on the Scriptures above. What’s the worst that can happen with your giving? You will be obeying Yahshua’s command to love your neighbor as yourself. You will be loving someone whom you might actually hate, guaranteeing you will be a son of Yahweh. Wow, that’s not such a bad reward, is it? There’s nothing wrong with doing your due diligence, so you know you’re not supporting some Satanist or occultist ministry, but once you’ve done some due research, you have no excuse for not giving something to the minister of Yahweh. Yahweh gives to all men, evil and good. We should strive to be like our Heavenly Father. It’s ok to give to Christian ministers and ministries that you do not know personally, or maybe you haven’t met in person.
Giving a little goes a long way in Yahweh’s Kingdom ministry. For you first world folks, your little is more than a third world person’s much. Mark 12:41-44 HRB “And sitting down opposite the treasury, Yahshua 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 need. She had cast in everything that she had, all her goods!”
I’ve written before about our boots on the ground pastor evangelist in India, Raj Kishor Karada. He’s about the most honest open believer I’ve met in the last several years. We’ve been supporting his ministry and family for a couple years now. Raja suffers and is persecuted in ways we do not yet understand, though soon we may have our opportunity to experience the same sufferings as Raj and Yahshua. Raja recently sent us pictures of his various IDs and credentials, simply because people in our country don’t believe what people say about themselves. We want proof that someone is legit. Well, Raja sent us a bunch of photos. I’ll try to insert some into this document for your perusal. I encourage you to give to Raja. He travels hundreds of kilometers out into the remote mountains and jungles of India to minister for and with Yahshua. As I’ve stated before, you can transfer funds using www.xoom.com directly into Raj’s bank account. He can access the funds within a day or two. If you would like his bank account information, email me at: anapto2 (at) gmail (dot) com.
Here’s an unedited email we received from Raja this week: “Thank you so much for your prayer. Today I received a call from a young man and he was telling, he is so much inspired by my ministry and now willing to work with me in different villages. Once I had shared about my testimony and vision for bringing revival to every house. My statement was ” May each individual be prayer warrior and every house be house of prayer” I do believe your prayer and God’s plan is working among people to be closer unto God. I am so excited sharing it to you. I love to share all excited work i see in the ministry. I will be sharing with you after 3rd of next month. I wish if I had a camera to take pictures of all my work in the ministry and send you. Please pray so that some one may take pictures and give me. I will be so blessed to speak or chat with you .
yours in His vineyard
So, as Paul would say in Galatians 4:16 HRB “Have I become an enemy to you because I proclaimed to you the truth?”
