I will give you more.
More in a sense that you have never known before. Man thinks of ‘more’ as accumulation, but I see more as increase; the two are not the same.
Just as in multiplication versus addition, man thinks of adding to his life, whereas, I AM interested in multiplying through his life. An endless array of Blessing to him and to others through him.
Do you see I AM all about more, and community, rather than making one person a king? I want to involve as many as would come, to be involved in My network of Blessing.
It is the connection of Love
From man to man, house to house, service to service, ministry to ministry–if you are not involved, you are an island unto yourself and you are your own kingdom.
Your kingdom is temporal, Mine is Eternal.
Your kingdom pleases you, and maybe a small following who keep close to you; My Kingdom reaches far and wide to all who abide, all who’ll receive, all who believe.
There is no question where the power lies. No question as to which is more secure. Therefore, you have a decision to make. Will you spend your lifetime building your own pile of riches into a kingdom unto yourself?
Big or small it won’t matter to all, and your lifetime will be spent.
“Be not afraid when one becomes rich, when the glory of his house increases. For when he dies he will carry nothing away; his glory will not go down after him. Though, while he lives, he counts himself happy, and though a man gets praise when he does well for himself, he will go to the generation of his fathers, who will never more see the light. Man cannot abide in his pomp, he is like the beasts that perish.” Psalms 49:16-20
Rather, choose to abide, and hear from My Heart, what is your part in building My Kingdom; far more reaching than your lifetime.
When you decide…
I have More!
“Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His descendents will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house; and his righteousness endures for ever. Light rises in the darkness for the upright; the Lord is gracious, merciful, and righteous.
It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered for ever.” Psalms 112:1-6
“The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you may always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work. As it is written, ‘He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures for ever.’ He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your resources and increase the harvest of your righteousness.
You will be enriched in every way for great generosity, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God; for the rendering of this service not only supplies the wants of the saints but also overflows in many thanksgivings to God.
Under the test of this service, you will glorify God by your obedience in acknowledging the gospel of Christ, and by the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others; while they long for you and pray for you, because of the surpassing grace of God in you. Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!” II Corinthians 9:6-15
“When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.
Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'” Matthew 25:31-36
“‘–Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:40
“Then he will say to those at his left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.'” Matthew 25:41-43
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5
“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruits of righteousness which come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11
“He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures for ever; his horn is exalted in honor.” Psalms 112:9
