The Bone Picker
I have another bone to pick this week.
For those of you who do not know our Lord and Savior, I want to give you my slant on Him. The Virgin Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit and she bore our Deliverer, whose name is Jesus. He is The Christ or Messiah.
I want to state exactly what Jesus said about himself in Luke 4:18-19
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”
Not one time in the New Testament did Jesus ever say, “If you will give me $100.00, I will in turn give you $1000.00; or if you sow a seed of 30, 60 or 100 dollars, I will give you my best garment to wear. If you believe the reason Christ gave up His throne in Heaven was to come to earth for you so you could gain money, then something is dreadfully wrong and you are deceived.
God is fully aware that it takes money to live. He is also fully aware of the fact that it costs money to take the gospel to the nations. You need to go to God and tell Him what you need and then turn around and stand on what faith you have and let Him bring the increase. Yes, you need to sow into the kingdom but you need to find out why.
For those of you who are teaching this, I say to you here and now, “Get behind me Satan, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, for you do not have in mind the things of God but the things of man.”
