"Feed a man a Fish and he eats for a day. Teach a
man to Fish and he eats for a lifetime." While conducting a sermon on Mt. Sinai, Christ fed the multitudes with
fish and bread. The crowd was very appreciative and listened intently. If He had returned to speak the second day,
lunch would be expected and anticipated to warrant their time. If He does not feed the second day, the crowd is
disappointed and will not return nor learn from what has already been spoken. If He does feed the second day, the
crowd is justified with giving up their time to listen. Upon the third day, the crowd
isentitledto lunch, blanket, tent and a mule to
get them there to listen. The Sloth of the entitled“SELF” will prevail over the generosity of the "SAVED" without continual accountability.
Just Imagine what Christ could have promised had He
been running for political office. Vote for Me and you can sit around this mountain everyday eating sardines and
pita bread. Even that would not be enough for the entitled
at the expense of their contributing brothers and sisters in Christ. The entitled will lobby for Drive-Thru. The abuse and
corruption of entitlements is completely out of hand. The Mule of this economy can no longer pull the cart of
entitlements, so the driver got a credit card and promises the creditors to pay it back with the sweat from the overworked mules and inadvertently promises the blood
and tears of their future
Somebody please help me out with this
scenario.Joseph(great grandson ofAbraham) interpreted the Pharaoh's dreams and gained great wealth for Egypt derived from the starving.
The descendants became slaves to the Egyptians who held the debt. It would appear that“Debtor's Prison” is still alive and well with the current state of our economy. Who holds the debt of the
U.S. Economy? What type of whip will future taskmasters sting our descendants with? Will
anotherMoses emerge to save them from becoming
indentured slaves for the debt our generation has left as our Legacy?
“WILL WORK FOR FOOD”. I work for mine, why should my
brother not work for his? If the “Body of Christ” is
to become a soup kitchen for the hungry, then have them comply with their promise which is the same as mine (e.g.
Will Work For Food). Who knows, they may find some purpose in life with added responsibility and trust. I kind of
like the pattern of Christ, You Get One Free Lunch and then Grab a broom or you end up with
Sinai” filled with the motivations of “SELF”. The Beast within all is masked and our own Leprosy is cloaked from our judgmental peers.
I seem to recall Christ doing more than just feeding
the poor literally and spiritually. I recollect His Healing Grace of Miracles. So if the“Body of
Christ” is the Church and Christ was not only a meal provider, but also a physical healer, why are the parking lots only full
on Sunday and Wed Night?... Why are there so many Churches on every street corner? Are these Churches in the
"Business" of spreading the "Good News" of His "Second Coming" or are they parts of His Holy Healing Body and
fulfilling their role in His"Promised Kingdom"? When He returns, how would the Master grade the performance of His Holy Body?
"Birthrights" are the key to theSeven Sealed
Scroll (i.e. Gods Last Will and Testament). Esau didn't
understand them and sold his for a mere bowl of soup to his brotherJacob/Israel. Even today "Birthrights" get
buried in the sand because of expense and lack of knowledge. This is what "Birthrights" can do. I realize 10%
R.O.I. is lofty in our present economy, but in a moderately thriving economy it would not.
I have the same illustration using the "We Are The
World" campaign showing howGlobal poverty can be overcome. Just
imagine, if $10 million were collected and put in a We Are The World LLC, invested into our marketplace growing
jobs for us and then sending the starving Africans over $21 million worth of rice that was distributed over a time
period of 1985 - 2008. I'll let you do the math on how much theyCOULD be receiving
in the year of 2012, 2013, 2014... and no one has drawn out another dollar from their own wallets since the
concert. We can feed the charitable birds in this way. Our seeds must be planted for the birds to eat
eternally. Did you notice how muchGod collected with His 10%? That is
how we fund the payroll for the physicians and nurses at the"Body of
BTW...I remember hearing a rumor that most of the
relief that was sent to Africa spoiled on the docks over bureaucracy. You must understand how Daily Bread works.
When a seed is planted it requires water to grow. Too much water drowns your plants and too little dries them out.
Consider planting seeds rather than a tsunami of perishable giftsspawned by pep rallies of
