Seeking God As Your Sponsor!

By Apostle Cathryn Ndyabagye

Psalm 37:4 "Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart."

We serve a God  who gives us 'joy unspeakable and full of glory!' God is our only hope in life. And without trusting him, we can't please Him. 

God looks at our our hearts to see if we are going to trust him or not. He knows our every intention--knows why we do things.

As a minister of God, we are first saved,  then called by God to minister to the lost, poor and dying. We are to be spiritual leaders and examples of love in Christ.

We lean on Jesus, serve others to the best of our ability, to feed the sheep, uplift, and edify the body.

Through my 42 years of serving the Lord, I have seen a real change in ministers and those claiming to be pastors. So many are not following the ways of the bible.

What is God seeing in our hearts today?

I know of two kinds of pastors in our current world that we live in:

1.Those who are loyal to God and His Word, winning many souls for Jesus. Those fully trust in God and the Lord always meets their needs.

They never have the desire to beg for or ask anyone for money.  They serve the sheep and feed them in their congregations.

They do not lack for they are blessed of God for their obedience to Him.

They go to God in the prayer closet, and the Lord always answers them openly--Giving favor to them for keeping their faith in Him. They know what it is to really rely on God.

Matthew 25: 21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

2. Greedy and Carnal Pastors. 

There is another breed of pastors that are totally new in this generation, those who  have not been called by God. They just decided to be a minister. They do not know what being a servant is.

They expect others to take care of them and they take, instead of giving. I am honestly concerned about their souls. For they have more to answer for.

Those who always end their broadcasts asking for money, instead of just giving an altar call to those listening on the radio and watching on TV. 

These pastors are not from my generation or upbringing of how Jesus taught us in the Bible. God  forbid that we would beg during our altar calls or on the radio!.

Instead of distributing free literature and trusting God, these new pastors ask you to buy their books or send a pledge or ask you to support them. 

And many make a lot of money off of the Gospel when Jesus paid the price for free. He freely gave!

I never dreamed of the day that pastors would actually get into ministry just to make money off of people. GO FIGURE!

Pastors who contact total strangers by email (sending a sad sob stories to people they don't even know, and those gullible to listen to their scam).

They use Internet blogs and sites to set up their base of scamming for money. You can tell those like this.

I never dreamed pastors would come to what they are today!

They don't have testimonies and share God, they only tell about themselves and in every paragraph there is begging for funds and sponsors statement, and long lists of expensive things they need.

They write begging letters, and use the approach, which Jesus never ordained us to do as pastors.

1 Timothy 6:10 "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."

Mark 8:36 "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

Mark 8:35 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it.

These pastors who go to others for support all the time (for themselves) are not dying to self. They are not losing their life for Christ. They are trying to gain everything from the world!

They are not even following Matthew 6:33 at all, in fact, they are opposite of that scripture. Let me show you...

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Pastors who are following this scripture correctly will seek God first and trust in the Lord, live be righteous wait on God, trust in God, then the Lord will add everything to this pastor through his faith and obedience.

When a fake pastor is begging he is not seeking the Kingdom of God first. He is seeking the THINGS THAT SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU first. So they are doing it backwards!

They are plain lazy and will not work to support themselves, as God ordained man to do.

They do not try to generate income to help their families, the orphans etc. They can't budget their money.

Mind you, there are many micro-loans to help many of them to start their own businesses to support their work. But instead, they lean on many who are hardly even able to pay them.

They take on something they can't handle, and God never called them to run their ministry this way!

1 Timothy 6:6 says, But godliness with contentment is great gain. 

So if a pastor is content in God they will have no need to beg for money from others. And God will reward them by meeting their needs AMEN!

When I was a youth pastor, I was going through some testings of not having much money. I got on my face before God, and  kept my hands busy and the Lord work, and God always answered and  provided. I never had to go to people for money from the pulpit or in ministry--not ever!

The only time I ever got money on my own, was for a job I worked for or earned it. AMEN

How Begging Is Causing the World to Hate Christians:

When people see pastors begging and acting desperate,  it makes the pastors look weak and not strong in God, it gives the sinners, and the world a bad view of Christianity.

It's a bad example and  chases many believers out of their own Churches, causing many sinners not to want to attend. This is called a stumbling block. Do you want to be liable for that as a pastor?

According to the American Heritage Dictionary the world Stumbling block means:

A hindrance or obstacle

Do we want to be a hinderance or obstacle that cause other's to turn away from the gospel?

Mark 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

Many people have stopped attending Church, because they feel  twisted and pressured into giving, instead of freely giving from their hearts.

If pastors are teaching the word properly and showing them in scriptures on all things and subjects, the sheep will give as the bible is taught. With no pressure needed!AMEN

God allows offerings according to scripture for them to give as GOD speaks to them. And to give their 10%.

There is no need for a pastor to pray for 2 hours over the offering, or have 5 offerings given just to get the amount they want. An offering is a free will offering and given by each person freely from their congregation.

When a pastor's whole focus is on  money, riches and material things, this deceives the congregation and thus, influences the sheep to follow suite of the pastors ways of greed.

And as this is happening, the true Christians in the congregation, can see through this fake pastor. 

They get so tired of the Gospel not being the Pastor's main focus--and end up leaving to find a Church that will feed them the Word. AMEN!

Do you see the pattern today?

God wants a true shepherd, a pastor who lives a humble,and righteous life. Who is more concerned about feeding the sheep--than taking advantage of the sheep!

If fake pastors do not get their lives in order, they are going to keep causing more and more people to fall away from the gospel, the fake pastors will be accountable to God for them.  Time to repent!

And when Jesus comes back these same pastors will not go when Jesus returns! Yes that is right!

Who came up with this begging anyway?

How can you be a servant if you are begging? Can't be both.

If you read in Acts you will find the story of the disciples ministering to a lame beggar. The beggar wanting money from them. Well the disciples were instructed by God not to carry a purse or money-- to go and preach the gospel.

So as you see in this scripture what the disciples told the beggar...

The scripture says...Acts 3:6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

 Mark 9:35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

If pastors were faithful servants, they would not put their trust in money. Their focus would be to share the Gospel.

They would not be expecting people to just give to them. They would have true compassion of Christ and act like Jesus--and serve others.

It's sad to me when I meet people on the Internet who only want to use me. They have no desire to just have fellowship and get to know me as a person in the Lord. We need to be friends and know people to be ONE in God.

It is not Jesus who called them to start soliciting and begging!

We need spiritual growth in ministry and many pastors need to be re-dedicated as a servants of God,  repent of their ways, get re-educated in the Word about serving God, and what Jesus said.  Yet many pastors just do not seem to be get it today!

Jesus firmly stated:

Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money."God knows the needs of each pastor. Surely, pastors do not have to go to great lengths to prove that God is not doing his job for them, by begging and pressuring people to support them!

Surely, they could have more faith in God than they do! AMEN!

We all go through suffering and God allows us to go through trials to learn. It's good for us to go through them.

It helps our faith become stronger. And in God alone. The Lord will never fail us.

No it's not about money, not in material things, and not in finding people as sponsors! God is all we need! AMEN

Many ministers lack, then beg more!  They do not realize that they are only defeating their own selves in the begging department.

God is allowing them to lack, because they are not really trusting in God, and they are going about it the wrong way!

Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding."

The Holy Spirit is our guide and teacher. If pastors are not really lead by the Holy Spirit, then they will come up with their own agendas, doctrines, and ways to get support.

Unfortunately, God is not happy with them doing this.

It's through hard times that we are able to grow in Christ. Hard times are not the times to beg, and it's really a time to really trust the Lord,  to believe in our Father God with all our mind, heart and soul!

Allowing Jesus to mold and shape each and everyone of us. To give us genuine faith in Him. 

We are a chosen generation to serve God to win the lost, not use people to fill our pockets! GOD FORBID!

We are only here on earth for a short time, and it's our responsibility to do God's will--In Spirit and in Truth.

God expects us to turn to Him when we have a need.  We run to God, and pray in the Spirit.

The Holy Spirit intercedes for us and God hears our cry.

Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

And when we finish praying we leave it with God and wait on Him for the answers. I know many do not want to wait on God.

Isaiah 40:31"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

If pastors pray--then doubt, by going ahead of God, what good is that doing their faith? 

They are calling God a liar. and not trusting in Him! Then worry lifts it's head in their lives again--a vicious circle!

Pastors are trusting in people to meet their need, and have replaced God with people.

It's all about Taking in their minds rather than serving, and giving. What is God to think?

They have become so greedy! Do they really think God is not capable of helping them? And do they think God is not aware of their scemes?

Pastors let me ask you something?

Have you thought of sharing testimonies on your site of all that God is doing in your ministry?

Your testimony how you were saved? 
Sharing the Gospel?

Or is it just about you?

Have you thought of how God can speak to people who read your testimonies?

If you had this on your site WITHOUT the begging, they would want to give, because they see the genuine testimonies of your work. (Not because you asked them).

Have you thought of only sharing on your site, 'how God called you?'

Make your whole site about what God has done instead of talking about your lacks and needs and how you need money or funds!

A total testimony of Jesus from those saved and healed, will say more about your ministry than anything else! AMEN

When you sound like a real pastor, people will have more respect for you.

Personal testimonies touch many more lives, than asking for funds in every paragraph of your blog or site.

Have you thought of sharing about how God is moving in people's lives?


If I recall, the disciples were not beggars, they ministered to them!

Again, let's go back to Acts...

 Acts 3:5-7 "And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

Now tell me, in this scripture did you hear the disciple begging for money?

Once this beggar was healed, he had no need to beg again. So why would ministers need to be the ones to beg?

So you see, the beggar was begging and hoping to get money from Peter. 



You should be more concerned with praying for people, deliverance, healing, and people being filled with the Holy Ghost.

Money should not be the issue in ministry!

How we walk, how we keep our feet clean, how we eat the Word, digest it, how we live, allowing the Holy Spirit to teach us the right ways of the word. This is what the ministers should be doing.

Pastors need to grow and mature! They need to get over these begging deals, and get back to the basics of the Bible again. AMEN!

Seeking God as Your Sponsor!

Let me ask you a question...

How can we put God down with our doubt of him meeting our needs, and then run in desperation to strangers acting like we are pitiful?AND LACK?

How can we put God down like He is not able to help us? God forbid that we should act this way!

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Ministers do not realize they hold a big responsibility to God and are very accountable in all they do.

Luke 12:48 "But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more."


Watch Out For Scam Pastors!

Scam pastors ones who contact sponsors on the Internet just to get money from people. They are the ones who ask people for things like: Cameras, trucks, cars, instruments, etc.

The public is not really aware of these pastors and what they really do with these things (once they get them).

Remember, I lived around pastors abroad and saw first-hand what they were up to!

Sometimes, they take the things you send them, then, they turn around and sell them for money. Tell me, is this honest to you?

Every piece of clothing, shoes and things you send to many of these pastors,  end up at the market to make money for themselves.

Many of the clothes and shoes do not end up for homeless children or the needy! Sorry but I have to be honest!

I know of a scam Evangelist that contacted many people with letters telling about his ministry, and for support.

Once he got to know them, and became very close, he ended up with what he wanted. He got money in his bank account from the UK.

They sent him a motorcycle for him to use in the village. When the motorcycle arrived, he didn't use it for mission work, he sold it for money for his family.

All the hard work that the UK pastors did, and time they took to collect all of the money, and to just be used by him. This happens all the time folks!

Galations 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

I remember in the days I got saved in 1971, great revivals were breaking out all over in the USA, and abroad.

I went with many of my friends who were saved. We were so on-fire for God, and were into 'winning our towns for Jesus' and going 'door to door'--telling everyone about the Love of God and inviting them to Church.

We had no thought of money in our minds. We were so excited how Jesus changed us, and our desire was to see others receive this same joy of knowing the Saviour! The joy of Salvation!

We wanted people to experience God's move like we did.

We didn't talk about money, funds, or sponsors to them. We told people about Jesus and how awesome He was!

My pastors I learned from back then,  would never do such things that these news pastors do today. He never raised us in God that way either. THANK GOD!

Our focus was to witness, give our testimonies and tell how we got saved, feed the Church, work in areas of the Church, as it was growing with revival! HALLELUJAH!

It was about GIVE! GIVE! GIVE!

We gladly donated our time with no pay and loved working for God. We did not lack AMEN!

We saw many saved and the Church kept growing. It was totally awesome! Many were miraculously healed!

We had some wonderful moves of God with healing, deliverance, massive amounts of people saved, and filled with the Holy Ghost.

Nobody lacked, because we gave to one another and there were no beggars in our Church. Hallelujah!

Did you ever stop to think that, these pastors in countries abroad, who are always online--have nothing better to do than to hunt sponsor?

They are not working a job. Not even busy in their own church--just online!

True Christians do not use the net to solicit people!

Many  of these pastors online, only depending on you to take care of their income for them, and they seem not to lift a finger to take care of their obligation--their family.

Yet we all have an obligation to work and take care of our own families.

They try to sound like they have such a good ministry--staying on the net--try to collect money. But they expect you to send them funds so they can leave their families behind and fly to another country! I speak the truth here! AMEN

Do you know what they really are doing with the money you give them?

Are they really pastors? Or using you? You need to see for yourselves...

It's never wise to give people money that you do not know! What if they really are not who they say they are?

Seeking God as Your Sponsor!

I have lived in both Africa and Asia and have seen first-hand the fake pastors who only looking for riches.

They warm up to you, to get something from you, like to take advantage of people who visit them, try to be nice to your face, and who even go as far as, to charge pastors big amounts of money, for the visitor pastors to pay for their services that they hold for YOU. It's a scam!

Some charge $2,000 to $6,000  to visitors who go to their country or church (thinking white people are rich and they are only trying to fill their pockets with money). The actual cost of their meetings is $200 to $500 total!

The visitor pastors from USA and UK or wherever, get taken advantage of big time! They have no idea what the real cost of these pastors meetings are going to be.

Funny, we never charge anyone for our services when we invite them to our places! We even feed  and house them for free!

How does this make God feel when fake pastors are cheating people and lying? Their only focus is on money and their bank account! We really need to open our eyes!

People have the right to know the difference between fake and real pastors! This is why I am writing this to you.

Get gospel smart, get online smart!

In both Africa and Asia you will not see pastors begging, who are real in Jesus. They closely follow the word of God to the tee.

They do not sway into their own system of human error. They are not bad shepherds, they value the shepherd position that Jesus called them into, and they do not make up their own doctrines that the Bible does not teach.

In America, many pastors are guilty of doing the same things on TV or radio station broadcasts, and many of the pastors abroad have learned  by seeing other pastors beg in America.  It's so sad to me.

What type of examples are we?

I know some pastors on TV and they have healing ministries. I am not against healing ministries, it's just the ways they go about it.

These pastors who send out letters of 8 pages giving you instructions to follow and at the end of it they tell you that your answers to your prayers will come, when you send them money---THESE ARE SCAMS!

There is no such thing as planting money seeds. It's all a gimick to get your money. Jesus said seed as the 'Word' not money.

I wanted to test these evangelists I saw on TV, and see what they were doing. They claimed that if they sent you a vial of anointed oil, that God would answer your prayers.

But they didn't tell you about what you had to do to get that...

I called two different evangelists phone number on TV, to try this to see what they would do. They took my information and then, I got nothing but these fake letters from them. I did receive the anointed oil but the whole thing was not right...

I opened the letter to find 8 page letter with all these scriptures, and directions and they told me to put the papers in my bible for 5 days, then send money to them after that 5 days. I knew by the letters, it was all a hoax.

What people do in the name of Jesus is beyond me!

I wrote them each evangelist, asking them not to send me letters anymore. for once I got their first letter, they did this over and over again. Hounding me for money.

I told them that if they really cared about those who called in, they would not have this approach for people with needs.

That they would actually pray for them over the phone and surely they would not send a bunch of scam letters only--to get money from those they sent them to.

They showed no concern to the people who called then and to use them to suck money from them was so bad and evil. Doing this in God's name! GOD FORBID the way things are getting.

Seeking God as Your Sponsor!

I shared with them also, that I was a child of God and a missionary, and I never treated people like they were supposed to give me money.

I told them they were going to answer to God for how they are scamming people.

It's so discusting how people are really trying to use God this way for themselves.

I do not put down ministries that really have God using them to save people, or to see them filled and touched by the Holy Ghost. This is not what I am saying.

It's those who are only after your money and do not care about you. Those are the ones we need to really watch out for.

There are pastors in Africa who only started their own ministry to turn it a business, or empire for their own personal gain.

And I have seen them in action in their countries, exploiting those they host.

They go as far as, trying to get many of their own people to attend their service to collect a big offering for themselves.

And I learned very quickly that if I handed them cash or money, that I would be putting myself at risk of danger, of being robbed, and that I would cause their focus of the Gospel and Jesus--to end up being about me bringing them money.

And if you give money to one, others will want you to do the same and this can get you in deep trouble. Especially when word gets around, and you get robbed with them thinking you are rich.

I am serious! I know what it's like to be around both types of pastors. I had to learn this when I went to these countries.

I learned how to help people in practical ways like, teaching a lady how to type, or sharing how to make fruit pies when they only make meat pies. I have many ways I can help people with ideas.

If I wanted to put a well in a village, I could pay for services myself. Not to allow them to take my money. It's something you have to learn.

Someone started flashing money around, and handing it out thinking they were doing a good deed for the people. But it only put the love of money in these people's lives.

Those who just hand out money, are being laughed at and not respected. Ask any African if what I am saying is true!

To Pastors who do not have much faith:

Did you ever stop to think that when you give up on God, and the minute you turn to others begging, you are wavering, and doubting Him?

When we cast our cares on Him, he cares for us. Then, it's our responsibility to trust God after we pray the first time.

Putting our faith to the challenge in God. Trusting and expecting an the answer without complaining, wavering, and doubting.

Our calling is not about Us, It's about God,

Let me show you in the Word of God...

2 Timothy 1:9 "Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began"

When we are faithful--putting God first, and not people--God will bless us for our patience to wait upon Him--being obedient to Him, and we won't want to get ahead of him, and won't want to be a counterfeit pastors. AMEN

To be honest, God is insulted when you get a replacement for him--when you feel God is not working in YOUR TIME or not doing a good enough job for your ministry.

Seeking God as Your Sponsor!

And have you noticed, you lack a lot because of that attitude?

God wants to renew your mind and get you on the right track again.

You need land? God gave land to the faithful in the Bible:

Deuteronomy 1:36 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed the LORD.

God will bless and fulfilled the desires of our hearts, and do His will in us. And first we need to seek 'Him'.

Man does not have our answers--Only God does.

The Bible says in Micah 7:5a Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide:

We are supposed to lean on God.

Be careful when you go and try to seek sponsors, instead of God.

The Lord reveals this in the Word. Read every word in this scripture what it says...

I Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Many lack answers to prayer's of this exact problem in ministries today. It's time we preach about this more. AMEN

Pastors are not really going to God for their needs. They are only RAISING FUNDS and they don't even need GOD to do that. This is truth!

They get ahead of God and do things on their own and stand in lack, they suffer, then complain and cry out to others and beg.

Is this God's will for you? Is this how God ordains? No! of course not!

God Forbid that we go away from the teachings of Jesus.




Luke 20:21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly:

But God will allow you to go on and do what you are doing until you realize He is waiting for you to turn to Him. OR YOU MAY MISS HIM WHEN JESUS COMES BACK! AMEN

Let me be very transparent for a minute... When I hear pastors begging for money and saying PLANT YOUR SEED TODAY and GOD WILL BLESS YOU. I turn the channel!

I know they are only after money and not about the Lord. I never have asked for money from the pulpit and never plan to. AMEN

We need revival for Pastors today. To die to that flesh of greed and money hungry Churches AMEN

Normal offerings are OK because people volunteer that and give to their pastors. 

Begging for offerings is so Unscriptural .

What are we teaching the Church? Shouldn't it be of spiritual things?

1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

God knows your needs. He is waiting for you to go to Him...

Go into your closet secretly and tell God your needs. and he will reward you openly.

The Word has many promises! We need to know these promises that are not being taught.

Matthew 6:4
That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Matthew 6:6
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

We have to be willing to wait on God, wait for Him to open the doors, when we have needs in ministry or in our Christian life.

When we step out and do things on our own without prayer, we are not trusting God and waiting on Him.

Going shopping for a sponsor is something that God is angry with today.

If you are doing this, I pray you will get your heart right at this minute.  You do not want to be a bad shepherd in God's eyes. AMEN

Ministers are examples and shepherds of the Church and are responsible for being good.

Unfortunately bad examples are existing in pulpits, and if you are bad you will have to answer to God.

Yes some pastors are doing what they want to--their own agenda and not ordained of God because of the ways they do things.

We can't do our own things and say it's God. And when people do this, they get to a point where they hit up against the wall, with no answers and become desperate. They still continue--begging.

God has been waiting all this time for them to come to Him!

When Christians, who can't believe in God, think the call of God is a burden and that God is not doing His job--You need to know what the Bible says about this..

Did you know it angers God when servants of God treat God as a burden?

These are some scriptures I take very close to heart, because we have to be careful not to make God into a burden!

And many people treat God as a burden, especially in ministry...Please read these....

Jeremiah 23:36
And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.

Jeremiah 23:38
But since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD;

This is hurting your testimony and giving a bad image to Jesus.

We have to move 'out of our own plans', step out of the way, and let God take over! AMEN! He has His own plans for our lives. AMEN

If a person thinks they have to go to others for a sponsor, where is their faith?

They are not believing Scriptures and standing on the Word of God. AMEN

Psalm 55:22
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Isaiah 10:27
And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.


And Jesus says:

Matthew 11:30
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

In Psalms 34:6 The poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of his troubles.

So next time you sit down at the computer my brother or sister in the Lord, and you reach people abroad, you have been warned...

If you can't meet people and become true friends, to pray together and just get to know each other, no need to send emails that beg for money, this does not help you to know anyone.

Using people is not a good example to your Church or the the Body of Christ. AMEN!

One of the biggest lessons I have learned as a Christian and as a servant of God, is to remember to keep thankfulness and rejoicing in the Lord in my mouth and in my life.

When I see so many pastors complaining about their lacks and begging, it's a shame.

I know it may seem hard, yet, we need to be rejoicing in hard times--for this is faith that we stand it before our victory!

When pastors complain because they lack. They are not rejoicing in and through trials.

And in time, God will show us what He wants for us!

We need to stop planning something God is not a part of. AMEN

Put the complaining away and rejoice in God in Faith so you can be blessed. AMEN

Psalm 34 Read all of this chapter.

I want you to heed what the Lord taught in the Bible over and over again--he said this to the people.... Do not seek Idols, Fortune tellers, Witchcraft, and do not lean on men or friends.

We don't even need to seek sponsors. If God wants us to have a sponsor, He will bring them to us. AMEN

We won't have to be out hunting or shopping for them. AMEN!

It's all about allowing God to bring it forth in our lives. Are we willing to wait on God?

God is the Executive Director!

He is the one in-charge! We are not in-charge of God!

Seeking God as Your Sponsor!

We are to seek God for all of our answers. If we seek any other than the Lord, we will lose our way. And this is not putting God first.

God is a jealous God, and we don't need idols and other people as our God. AMEN

Yes, we have all heard this scriptures many times...

And, If there were ever a day we need to let this scripture sink into our minds hearts and lives, it's today!

We need to really know what this scripture is talking about.

Allow it to be real to us! For saying it and not doing it are two different things.

Remember God is our sponsor! AMEN

Christ is head of the Church. He is our leader, our provider, and we need to keep our eyes focused on God, and His righteousness, keeping our hands busy for Him, at the plow!

If you are willing to follow Him, He will bring 'His will' to your life. And we have to be patient to wait on God our Father!

When pastors sound desperate and pitiful, and  they look helpless to the world. 

They wonder why people run from them, don't want anything to do with their begging.

Let me ask you, Is it all about money or Christ?

If we are going to be warriors for Christ, shouldn't we be strong enough and have our loins gird about with truth, and our helmet of salvation, where we are solidly firm in God? And shouldn't we keep our shield of faith up and know the Sword, which is the Word?

We need to change the way we walk before God and do things if we want God to bless our ministry--Especially NOT doubting God!

We can't go around saying we are pastors and be beggars, with bad attitudes and doubting God.

What message are we sending to those who deal with us?

Jesus expects us to be strong in His faith, powerful in His authority! And He expects us to trust Him.

We should really be what we are teaching AMEN.

Yet today, you see many servants of God who sound hopeless, helpless, and not trusting God at all. No wonder their prayers are not answered! AMEN

If a man does not get his prayers answered because he does not love his wife, how much more will he not get his prayers answered when he does not love and trust in God!

Don't get me wrong, I have compassion for the needy and try to give in ways I can, but not because they are begging.

I shy away from pastors who beg. For many are scams on the net.

I join up with the true body of Christ, those who live according to Scriptures AMEN.

Ephesians 4:18
Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

How do pastors un-stress and not allow worry and stress come into their lives?

How do they change to a faith-filled, rejoicing, confident in God minister? How do they overcome?

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

By Trusting in Jesus in everything, with prayer, and supplications, hoping in Him, believing in Him.

Having faith which is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. We do not lack when we trust in God! AMEN

We do it with God's help. In ourselves we are nothing, and can't do it alone. Through Christ we can do all things!

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men


Nothing is impossible with God.

Do you believe that today?

Luke 24:45
Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures

Ephesians 1:18
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints

Ephesians 5:17
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I challenge you to give God the chance to prove his love and will for you!

Allow Him to do it. Let go of your own will, and let God's WILL reign!

Isaiah 52:7
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Let us so shine our light among men, so they will see God reigns in our lives!

Let's be powerful ministers in the Lord Jesus Christ! By being 'Confident in God'! Being true to God and true to others, and ourselves! AMEN...

1 Corinthians 4:2-10 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God. And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.

Philippians 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

We may be hated by the world and persecuted but we can smile anyway in the Joy of the Lord! AMEN!

We can laugh in the Spirit! We know whom our sponsor--The Father is!

We know whom our Redeemer is in our hearts--POWERFUL LOVING JESUS CHRIST.

We stand confidence in God and fear no man. Only fearing God! We stand confident in God's Spirit. AMEN

So why are we sad if we are doing God's will? OH MY FRIENDS REJOICE!

For Christ is coming soon! Keep your hands busy for God, and fret not, nor waver and God will bless your faith and patience in Him. You will see many more miracles if you do!
