Our ministry operates on a budget that is donated by our supporters and donor community.
Examples of Kingdom Economics is using your car to take people to church, using your house to minister, and taking the resources God entrusted to you in order to manifest His Kingdom on Earth. Did you know that God owns 100% of all we have?
"The earth is the Lord's, and all it's fullness, The world and those who dwell therein" Psalm 24:1 (NKJV)
Our ability to work, our intellectual property, and our creativity all belongs to Him. Our sole mission on this earth is to use our natural and spiritual gifts along with all the resources necessary to assist with the establishment of God's Kingdom on Earth.
In Matthew 6:21 (NKJV), Jesus says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also"
A treasure is what you put value in - what you trust in. Notice in Genesis 14:19-20 (NKJV) where Abraham gives the high priest Melchizedek, type and shadow of Christ, a tithe (a "tenth" according to H4643 Strongs concordance #; from H6240). This was approximately 430 years before the law of Moses was instituted. In Genesis chapter 28:20-22 (NKJV), Jacob makes a vow to give God a tenth of all his increase. 10% is the minimum we commit back to Him and we are called to be good stewards over the rest.
Neither Abraham nor Jacob received a word from God instructing them to give, but since they valued God, LOVE became their motivation. Since they trusted God, FAITH was activated which unlocked the riches they walked in. See, we give simply out of LOVE - nothing else!
The Kingdom of God
The Kingdom of God is God's rule, God's Government, or God's way of "doing what he does". The rulers of the darkness of this age (Ephesian chapter 6:12 NKJV) have blinded our minds to the truth. They have subjected us to state of darkness by controlling our feelings, thoughts, and perceptions about money. Just like we go to school to learn the skills of the world, the purpose of the church is to educate the people of God with the skills of the Kingdom.
This is what prevented the rich young ruler from inheriting eternal life in Mark chapter 10:17-22 (NKJV) - his love for his great possessions trapped him. We know this because he was not willing to give them up to inherit treasure in heaven. Jesus knew through the power of the Spirit that his heart was connected to his great possession. This is why He said, "sell everything you have and give to the poor".
God is the only one your heart should be connected to. A few chapters later Jesus told one of the scribes that the greatest commandment was, "You shall love the Lord your God with all you heart, with all your soul, with all you mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment." Mark 12:31 (NKJV). That word "love" (greek ag-ap-ah'-o) simply means unconditional love.
The real question when it comes to your money is this: IS YOUR HEART IN THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM? This requires faith, hence the reason many do not participate. This love that Jesus talks about is a love that moves one to obey. Love is a motivator - it's what drives you to do what you do.
Our Love for God
"For God so Loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" - JOHN 3:16 (NKJV).
He gave us His Best. He gave us His Last. He gave us His Only so that we could be the better. Why? Because, He loves us! Do you love God?
In Mark 12:41 (NKJV), the Bible says that Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. Many who were rich put in much. Then, one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadran (that's 3/8 of a cent if you're like me and have no clue what a quadran is). He called His disciples and said, "Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood". Love was her motivation. She trusted Jesus and the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Does God Need Your Money?
God does not need your money, but since your heart is attached to it, He asks for your money to see if He has you! He wants your heart synchronized with His Kingdom purpose for money - which is to seek and save that which is lost (Luke 19:10 NKJV) -
