1. A believer who has never been empowered to live a day at a time, or to allow tomorrow take care of its self, or who hasn’t experienced the peace that accompanies being content with food and raiment, is actually still living in fear; he hasn’t lived without fear—or like Jesus would come tomorrow (1 Tim. 6:8, Jam. 4:13-15, Lk. 1:74). He firstly needs the life that Christ gives and, then, the abundant life that the Father gives which has been packaged in the everlasting gospel (Jn. 10:10, Rev. 14:6).
2. As long as we haven’t been able to handle money like Jesus did in the last decade of his life, we still have fears that haven’t been exposed to God’s dealings; fears that limits us from serving God much more acceptably (Lk. 12:15; 1:74, Heb. 12:28). When we do, money will relate with us like it did with our golden example; with the man Christ Jesus (Matt. 17:24-27, 1 Pet. 2:21).
3. There is a (divine) nature we would acquire while being faithful with little, or in another man’s business; with the Father’s business that was faithfully handled by our Lord Jesus for the first time, which will also commit the Father to give unto us that which is ours, even the true or abundant riches (judgments) of everlasting life (Lk. 16:10-12, 2:49, Jn.5:22).
4. “To him that hath; or that has been faithful (fruitful) with the seed of the sower or with the word of righteousness (faith), more (seeds) shall be given to him because he will also be faithful and come into the abundance (multiplication) that the gospel of everlasting life has to offer” (Matt. 13:8-12, Lk. 16:10-13, 2Pet. 1:8-11). Does that describe you?
5. The nature of a true servant of God is the nature of a bond-slave; of one who has been found faithful in God’s sight, while serving God through men; while sacrificially using his time to seek the interests of another, and selflessly handling the mammon of unrighteousness (money) (Exo. 21:5-6, Phil. 2:19-21, Lk. 16:13).
6. Every believer that is worldly in nature, remains a stranger to the secrets that makes money become a servant to men and the true course of the gospel of Christ and God (1 Cor. 2:14, Phil. 4:15 – 17). And so most men have only realized when they got to heaven, that money should have primarily ran errands or served purposes that transcended time (this present life); purposes that are everlasting and eternal in scope (Gal. 6:6-9).
7. One key strategy of the devil, is to delay the timing when iniquity within and without will be exposed, and he scores this goal easily as long as he can get saints who have come into the sanctuary of faith (Christ), to despise the feasts and commandments of Charity (Christ) that prepares us for this; that prepares us to become the Lord’s brethren (priests) (1 Cor. 4:5, 1 Tim. 1:5-6, Heb. 2:11).
8. The quality of mercy that a believer or servant of God has accessed, can be traced to the degree to which the LORD had been able to hide him from men, even by separating him firstly from the law of sin and death, and; ultimately, from the law of hell and death (Ps. 91:1, Rom. 8:2, Rev. 1:18).
9. Coming under God by coming under our Lord Jesus through His Spirit, starts by coming under those those who are under Him (1 Pet. 5:5-6, Heb. 12:9, 1 Jn. 4:20). The reason why many believers disagree with this eternal order that was set by our Lord Jesus, or why others can’t naturally delight in it, is because of the presence of either of two laws; the law of sin and death, and/or of hell and death (iniquity) ( 1 Cor. 15:28, Rom. 7:21-24).
10. There is more spiritual enjoyment in some underdeveloped nations than in most developed nations where you will readily see things that should or would vex your spirit man (Heb. 11:24-27, 2 Pet. 2:8). The gospel of Christ has been cleansing the souls of many who will labour in such nations, and the gospel of everlasting life is now coming to furnish those labourers who would be exported to such nations (Acts 26:17-18, Eph. 5:26, Rom. 10:14-16).
