Those who know their God shall do great Exploits – When you Serve Him
Written by Joseph Ho, February 20th, 2010
For a long time I reframed from writing any monetary rewards of being a Christian and a believer on account of what the prosperity Gospel preachers have been selling the blessings for tithes which is essentially your money. These preachers have long forgotten how hard it is to earn a living and make decent money. People who seed their hard earned money don't make even enough for their own family, instead of helping them to overcome their needs of prospering through active hearing the voice of God, they subscribe paying a fee to be bless by God. Did Jesus ever teach to give money to him so that he blessed us, no, never, Jesus being the son of God showed he is more than able to provide for the needs of his people by multiplying bread and healing without taking any money for his services? This then is a demonstration of who God really is.
2 Peter 2:3
In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
2 Samuel 23:20
Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant fighter from Kabzeel, performed great exploits. He struck down Moab's two mightiest warriors. He also went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion.
And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
We are not to exploit the poor, the needy and the simple minded, we are to do great exploit so that we can help the needy. If tithing is the formula and the way which God will bless us, come explain why the non Christians are the top 10 billionaires in the world, which god has blessed them and I know they did not tithe to our God. Then since they are the richest men on earth, their gods must be more able to bless them than our God. Doesn't this strike a strong cord in all of us that in reality God is not into just material prosperity, because men can gain wealth through their ruthlessness?
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
A kindhearted woman gains honor, but ruthless men gain only wealth.
King Nebuchadnezzar was a pagan king yet when he refused to acknowledge that it was God who gave him wealth, he was punished for 7 years and became like a beast of the field loosing his sanity. So it is God who gave those non believers wealth all the same. Did Nebuchadnezzar paid his tithes to God? No he did not, in fact he was the one who destroyed Israel and took them captives for 70 years, yet God called King Nebuchadnezzar his servant.
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked;
People who have wealth but lack understanding are like the beasts that perish.
Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.
The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.
Wealth comes to those who have diligent hands, those who learn how to serve and provide a good product or services. This has no religious meaning, the sun shines for the wise, unwise, the rich and the poor, the believers and the non believers. Biblical principles of doing business will only caused more trouble to the believer than the non believers, simply because non believers can do anything to gain a sale while believers have to obey a full set of rules and regulation to please God. The only advantage of being a believer is that you will gain eternal life. And following the principle of God will bring peace with God and so have no trouble in the time of reckoning.
God being the creator of the universe, created all men of all races and religion. Therefore God is not a respecter of person, he treats everyone fairly. Those who would believe that he is the one who bless us with what we have are the wise people. If God did not plan for us to be what we are we can never achieve nor meet the right people to get our promotion. This is call destiny. Our destiny is already written in our character and personality so certain quality of men can do certain jobs and none can take their place.
So how can we knowing God do great exploit for him? Here in I present to you the truth, my personal exploit which I did with God.
Exploit Number One
Some years ago God send a company of prophets to our church, there was a lady prophetess who prophesy that God will increase my wealth soon. After that prophecy, I decided to search out how God will bless me. I had no rich father, no inheritance from anyone, didn't buy any lottery and no big jobs in the waiting, but I bought a lot of share of a listed company. And so I though this would be the way God will send me wealth and within a week this share started to climb from 26 cents upwards. When I wanted to sell this share which already doubled, God told me it would reach One dollar, so I waited until it reached 93 cents, by then I said it's enough and sold the share. After that the share went to a Dollar. It was God's tip that I had waited until it reached close to a dollar and sell off, without the tip from God I would have sold when it had a 30% gain as many share gurus would have told us this strategy. With God we can do greater things and in fact exploits.
Exploit Number Two
Another time while I was driving, God spoke to me about buying another share in the stock market, its was a internet company. The share was 13 cents at that time, so I told my Christian brother sitting next to me to pray if he should buy. And he told me God didn't tell him to buy, in fact the truth is he could not hear from God. God told me to tell him to buy the share buy he being very legalistic said he needed to pray to ask God. Nevertheless, I bought the share and also told my other Christian brother to buy the share. This share started to climb from 13 cents to 32 cents within a week. But seeing that this has already doubled I decided to sell. Then the next day I saw a sign bought which spoke to my heart, the sign said, "it will be beyond your expectation" and this sign was an advertisement for a beer company. I thought to myself how can this be, but true enough the share climbed another 26 cents to 58 cents and so it was more than my expectation.
Exploit Number Three
This happened in the recent 2008 financial crisis, when everyone including our governmental statistician thought it was going to be a U shape curve, God told me to invest heavily. But at that time, I had not much financial strength so I started to gather a group of people to start an investment company to invest in this stock market. I remember telling a CEO of a company to buy a share it was Palm Oil Company. I started to tell him to buy at 40 cents, then 35 cents, then 30 cents then 25 cents and then I wrote an email to tell him to buy a million shares at 17 cents. He told me I was guessing and was not moving in the spirit of God. Well recently it had recovered and hit the high of 81 cents. So this man would have made $640,000 within 2 years of its recovery. Thus a prophet is not welcome in his own homeland because he is not famous internationally.
So we have to hear from God personally, it's very difficult to ask someone to hear from God and then execute with his hearing, fear and a lack of any logic is the reason why we can not hear for others. People would not believe we hear from God when they see some small mistakes along the way. Hearing from God will create some small mistakes but in the long run, we always come out ahead positively because God will not forsake those who exercise their faith.
There was also a time, I tried to ask God by choosing some shares for him to tell me which one he would advise me to buy, and this way was a disaster because God is not our slave serving us. He will tell us when he decides to bless us. So again, I have received the next share to buy and I saw in my dreams the one share to buy the price at and the price at which to sell. So I know very well that if God is going to bless us, we will be prosperous, but we need to hear from him. We do not need to tithe and ransom God that he must bless us. When we chose to give to the kingdom of God we give it willingly from our cheerful heart, yet most people give their 10 percent with a sad heart. This is the word of the Lord thy God:
Who has a claim against me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to me.
Can you tithe and ransom God that he has to bless you? I don't think so. When we give unto God we should give out of our love for his will to evangelize and spread the gospel worldwide, not to built building and churches for the sake of building a personal empire.
Jesus did not build his physical church; he said we are the temple of God. The ministry of Jesus is the best possible ministry that any man should follow, it was the least it terms of financial cost and it was the best in terms of miracles and setting captives free, it was in the demonstration of a Mighty God who is real and very powerful. It was like God was on the earth himself.
I look forward to the true way of the Lord coming again to show how he does it the way it should be now our church is very commercial and entertaining without any show of true power and help. They even have the audacity to say that if you don't give to God, God can not bless you. That's really a lie and a load of garbage, unclean water, read your bible the blind man didn't even give anything to Jesus because he was poor and could not even work, yet God out of compassion gave him sight. And the widow with the dead son was crying for he was the only one who work and took care of her and now he was dead, yet Jesus resurrected him. My God does not need your money to bless you.
If you want to know what is truth come to my website at kingscepter.com and learn how to hear from God personally and let God lead you through calm waters, peace and comfort. Those who knows their God shall do great exploits, be the head and not the tail. May the mighty God bless you with the truth and open your ears and eyes.
