The Truth About How To Sow A Seed [YAHUWAH]

Send Me $273

I was watching t. v. early one morning, and on one of the religious programs, a man petitioned me to “sow a seed” of $273. From the man’s perspective, sow a seed means for the viewers of his television program to send his religious organization $273 each. He said that if I were to sow a seed of $273, my life will turn around and I will reap a harvest.

Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal Spoke To The Multitudes In Parable
Matthew 13:1-3

1 “The same day went Yahuwshuwah out of the house, and sat by the sea side. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. 3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;”

Matthew 13:10-11

10 “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.”

The people in these last days do not have the same dilemma as the multitudes in the first century because The Scriptures spoken in parables are given to all and a lot of them are given with an explanation of what the parable means. The parable about sowing a seed is one of the parables that Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal gave an explanation about what he meant, therefore, the people of Yahuwah are without excuse if we permit ourselves to be deceived by false teachers on this matter. What Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal told his disciples in secret about sowing a seed is available for us to read and understand.

What Is “Sow”?

Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (Tenth Edition) defines sow:

1: to plant seed for growth especially by scattering

A sower is one who plants seed.

What Is A Parable?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable

“The word “parable” comes from the Greek παραβολή (parabolē), meaning “comparison, illustration, analogy”.[4] It was the name given by Greek rhetoricians to any fictive illustration in the form of a brief narrative. Later it came to mean a fictitious narrative, generally referring to something that might naturally occur, by which spiritual and moral matters might be conveyed.[5]”

Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (Tenth Edition) defines the word “parable”:

parable—a usually short fictitious story that illustrates a moral attitude or a religious principle

The Parable Of The Sower And The Seed
Matthew 13:3-9

3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 “And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

Open Your Eyes Through The Scriptures

Why did Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal speak to the multitude in parables?

Matthew 13:15-17

15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

The phrase “waxed gross” (G3975) is a metaphor in this context and means:

pachuno {pakh-oo’-no} from a derivative of 4078 (meaning thick); v AV – wax gross 2; 2 1) to make thick, to make fat, fatten 2) metaph. to make stupid (to render the soul dull or callous)

The hearts of children of Yahsharahal had been made stupid by the false prophets and false teachers. Likewise, in these last days the hearts of the children of Yahsharahal have been made stupid by false prophets and false teachers because falsehoods of doctrine have been taught to them and the truth has been deliberately suppress concerning the true identity of the Yahsharahalites. The biological Yahsharahalites were among some of the black people who were transported in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade to the Americas. Yahuwah prophesied that the Yahsharahalites would be dispersed into captivity into all the nations, and it is well known throughout all the world that this is exactly what happened to the black people who were captured as slaves from the African continent. As a black person in America, I am guilty of this stupidity too, but Yahuwah has opened my eyes and ears to the following truth: All blacks are not Africans. Some of the black people who are walking around talking about returning to the motherland of Africa are speaking in error. The descendants of Abaraham were black people. If an individual does not research this truth and verify it as truth, the eyes will never see, and the ears will remain dull of hearing because the historians have rewritten history and they have told us a lie.

Acts 17:10-12

10 And the brethren immediately sent away Shauwl (Paul) and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Yahuwdy. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. 12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.

“And their eyes they have closed” is something that Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal says they do to themselves. The people are not taking out the time to read The Scriptures for themselves to verify if what they are being taught is the truth like the Bereans. There are ministers who will become indignant at the thought of a congregation member checking The Scriptures to see if what the minister teaches is the truth, but The Scriptures reveal that the apostles taught that it is a good characteristic in a person to verify all things our ministers teach us through a personal search of The Scriptures.

Seed By The Way Side

Matthew 13:18 “Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.”

Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal is getting ready to explain the meaning of The Parable of The Sower.

Matthew 13:19 “When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal explains that “the seed” is “the word of the kingdom.” There is no mention of giving or receiving any money. The parable of the sower is not about money. It is about a sower who sows the word of the kingdom. The kingdom is the kingdom of Yahuwah.

The sower represents a “believer” in the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah. Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal wants the people of Yahuwah to know what happens to an unbeliever “after” a believer witnesses to an unbeliever about the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah.

The wicked one has the ability to take away the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah which was sown in the heart, memory, and mind of the unbeliever who did not understand the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah when it was preached to him or her.

Seed Which Fell On Stony Places
Matthew 13:20-21

20 “But he that received the seed [the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah] into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.”

This unbeliever got real happy about the promises that Yahuwah promises to give the saints, and he or she got real happy about the prospect of all their sins being forgiven, but when he or she gets a taste of the tribulation and persecution that is prophesied to come with being a saint, he or she becomes offended. This unbeliever has “itching ears” in that he or she wants to hear only good things about the walk of the believer. Many in these last days do not want to hear about tribulation and persecution. Many have fallen for the false doctrine that a Pre-Tribulation Rapture is going to keep them from going through tribulation and being persecuted.

The Leaders Want To Hear Lies

1 Kings 22:8 “And the king of Yahsharahal said unto Yahuwshapat (Jehoshaphat), There is yet one man, Myakyahuw (Micaiah) the son of Yamala (Imlah), by whom we may inquire of Yahuwah: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Yahuwshapat (Jehoshaphat) said, Let not the king say so.”

Notice that the king knows that Myakyahuw (Micaiah) is a true prophet of Yahuwah, but the king rejects him. The kings who hate the prophets of Yahuwah will suppress the prophesies of the prophets of Yahuwah. The kings will surround themselves with false prophets who will prophesy lies to them. The kings choose to believe a lie.

1 Kings 22:13-14

13 “And the messenger that was gone to call Myakyahuw (Micaiah) spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that which is good. 14 And Myakyahuw (Micaiah) said, As Yahuwah liveth, what Yahuwah saith unto me, that will I speak.”

The people want to control what the true prophets of Yahuwah prophesy and what the true teachers teach. This messenger is attempting to direct Myakyahuw (Micaiah) in what he is supposed to say to the king. The messenger wants Myakyahuw (Micaiah) to speak the same lies as the false prophets. There have been instances in which I have had viewers to command me on YouTube to “Take down this video immediately!”, but if I believe it is the truth reveal to me through The Scriptures, I should not remove the truth.

Prophesy Lies To Us
Yashyah (Isaiah) 30:8-10

8 “Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: 9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of Yahuwah: 10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:”

Romans 16:17-18

17 “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Master Yahuwshuwah Mashyach, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

2 Timothy 4:3-4

3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

2 Thessalonians 2:11 “And for this cause Yahuwah shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:”

The Seed Received Among The Thorns

Matthew 13:22 “He also that received seed [the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah] among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.”

This unbeliever understood the word and became a believer and has the potential to produce fruit, but he or she continues to keep themselves among thorns (unbelievers) who are engrossed in the care of this world and acquiring riches. If the believer does not remove him or herself from constant company with the thorns (unbelievers) and begin to fellowship with other believers, eventually, the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah will be suppressed in his or her mind and life because the believer will continue to pursue the same interest of those unbelievers around him or her. The cares of this world and riches is what the unbelievers pursue and not the spiritual things of Yahuwah. This believer will be unfruitful.

What is fruit?

The People Of Yahuwah Are The Fruit

1 Corinthians 15:20-23

20 But now is Masyach risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Mashyach shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Mashyach the firstfruits; afterward they that are Mashyach’s at his coming.

Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal Mashyach was the first one of the fruit of Yahuwah that was resurrected from the dead and has received his heavenly body and immortality already. All others who were raised from the dead by the power of Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal and the disciples were raised back into the same flesh and blood body. The purpose of the Mashyach’s coming was to produce other fruit like himself. Fruit represents the people of Yahuwah. Notice also that verse 22 says “shall all be made alive” and verse 23 says “at his coming” which means the fruit of the people of Yahuwah have not been resurrected yet. The resurrection of “all” the fruit of Yahuwah is still a future prophecy.

Matthew 7:15-20

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal warns us to observe the fruit (congregation and the behavior of the congregation) that the false prophets produce to determine if they are from Yahuwah.

Righteousness Is The Fruit Of The Ruwach (Spirit)
Galatians 5:22-24

22 “But the fruit of the Ruwach (Spirit) is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Mashyach’s have staked [G4717 stauroo] the flesh with the affections and lusts.”

Philippians 1:9-11

9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Mashyach; 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Yahuwshuwah Mashyach, unto the glory and praise of Yahuwah.

Each believer should experience growth in his or her life in some area, one thing at a time. Ultimately, the people of Yahuwah desire to be like Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal in perfection, but perfection does not happen over night but requires prayer, an asking for forgiveness of sin in the areas we fail in, change, work, and endurance to the end. While the saints aim for perfection in righteousness, they are made perfect through the flesh and blood sacrifice of Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal Mashyach.

The Seed Received Into Good Ground

Matthew 13:23 “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”

The true believer understands the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah and bears the fruit of producing other believers through his or her witness and bears the fruit of righteousness which is spiritual growth in his or her life.

The Mankind Should Not Be Alone

Genesis 2:18 “And Yahuwah Alahyam said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”

Genesis 1:28 “And Alahyam blessed them, and Alahyam said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

When Yahuwah saw Adam alone, He made a proclamation that Adam being alone was not good, therefore, Yahuwah fixed this situation by giving Adam a wife. Furthermore, Yahuwah declared that even the two of them was not enough to relieve the feeling of being alone, therefore, He gave Adam and Chuwah (Eve) the ability to produce children.

The people of Yahuwah believe what Yahuwah said when he proclaimed that the mankind should not be alone, but was created to live with others of the mankind. The people of Yahuwah do not want to be the only one from the mankind in the kingdom of Yahuwah, therefore, the people of Yahuwah strive to make sure that they bear the fruit of other believers from among the mankind who will enter the kingdom of Yahuwah too.

Yahuwah Doesn’t Take Bribes
Deuteronomy 10:17-18

17 “For Yahuwah your Alahyam is Alahyam of alahyams, and Master of masters, a great Alahyam, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: 18 He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.”

Yashyah (Isaiah) 33:15-16

15 “He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; 16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.”

Yahuwah does not want your money. There is no amount of money that can be paid to Yahuwah in a bribe to get the mankind into the kingdom of Yahuwah. Yahuwah requires the death penalty for sin. Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal paid the death penalty for the repentant among the mankind “if” the mankind will accept it. Furthermore, Yahuwah wants His people to refuse bribes. In our modern times, bribes come in the form of donations and grants. Beware when an outside unaffiliated source (nonmember or nonbeliever) wants to invest in your congregation or offers free money to a religious organization or religious congregation. Yahuwah has not authorized His people to accept free money for the poor or to build buildings or redecorate, etc. from nonbelievers and strangers regarding congregation matters. This does not mean that the individual members of the congregation cannot accept gifts that are unrelated to the faith of Yahuwah from strangers for personal matters as long as the gift is not in conflict with the faith of Yahuwah.

They Make Merchandise Of You

2 Peter 2:3 “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

They use feigned words to relate the parable of the sower and the seed with money, by doing so, they make merchandise of the people and they are getting rich and living sumptuously while the members of their congregations are struggling financially.

The “Folds” Prophecy
Matthew 19:29

29 “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”

Mark 10:28-31

28 “Then Kaphah (Peter) began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. 29 And Yahuwshuwah answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the bashuwah (gospel’s), 30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. 31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.”

The “folds” prophecy is meant to be interpreted spiritually “in this time”, for if the people of Yahuwah interpret it literally, Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal preached that the people of Yahuwah will receive in this time the following:

1. at least one hundred houses
2. at least one hundred brothers
3. at least one hundred sisters
4. at least one hundred fathers
5. at least one hundred mothers
6. at least one hundred children
7. at least one hundred lands
8. at least one hundred wives (for each man)

Although some of the people of Yahuwah may be financially rich, this is not the norm for those who are prophesied to be persecuted in these last days. Yahuwah has not promised “all” His people that they will be financially rich. This spiritual prophecy points to the many spiritual houses, spiritual brothers, spiritual sisters, spiritual fathers, spiritual mothers, spiritual children, lands, spiritual wives, the people of Yahuwah will gain in this time in fellowship with the spiritual brethren who will also be going through persecutions. The “folds” prophecies have absolutely nothing to do with financial gain in this time. The financial riches are promised after the kingdom of Yahuwah has been established. Therefore, when it says in the parable of the sower and the seed that some brought forth a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, and some thirtyfold, it points to spiritual believers.

The Wicked Are Made Rich By BaBaL (Babylon)
Revelation 18:1-3

1 “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, BaBaL (Babylon) the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”

The Scriptures reveal that it is BaBaL (Babylon) that is making the rich wealthy in these last days, therefore, let’s not get jealous over this matter. The last (those who are not rich and great according to the standards set by this world) shall be first (the rich and the great) in the kingdom of Yahuwah (Mark 10:31).

Freely Give The Word And Spiritual Gifts
Matthew 10:5-12

5 “These twelve Yahuwshuwah sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Yahsharahal. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. 12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.”

The disciples were instructed not to carry gold, silver, or brass because the house that was worthy would welcome them into their household and feed them meat because “the workman is worthy of his meat”, and provide them with any other supplies they needed while in transit. They were not to charge for the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah. Another point I want to make is that, initially, the disciples went to the Yahsharahalites only which is not considered the general public or strangers, but kinsmen. The phrase “freely give” modifies what appears in verse 7 and 8. The people of Yahuwah are commanded to freely give (freely preach the word of Yahuwah, freely heal, freely cleanse, freely raise, and freely cast out).

Where Is Your Donation For The Poor Going?

The people of Yahuwah need to be aware of some of the issues associated with donations to foreign nations and donations to the poor of the strangers.

The Truth About Foreign Aid
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_corruption

“Corruption is often most evident in countries with the smallest per capita incomes, relying on foreign aid for health services. However, political exploitation of these funds have been noted to occur in the past, especially in the sub-Saharan African nations, where it was reported in the 2006 World Bank Report that about half of the funds that were donated for health usages, were never invested into the health sectors or given to those needing medical attention. Instead, they were expended through “counterfeit drugs, siphoning off of drugs to the black market, and payments to ghost employees”. Ultimately, there is a sufficient amount of money for health in developing countries, but this cash is given to the wrong hands, which leads to political and governmental corruption that takes away medical attention necessary for the citizens of these regions, and rather, used for personal gain.[7]”

“Governments with strong tendencies towards kleptocracy can undermine food security even when harvests are good. Officials often steal state property. In Bihar, India, more than 80% of the subsidized food aid to poor is stolen by corrupt officials.[8] Similarly, food aid is often robbed at gunpoint by governments, criminals, and warlords alike, and sold for a profit. The 20th century is full of many examples of governments undermining the food security of their own nations – sometimes intentionally.[9]”

Effects On Humanitarian Aid
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_aid

“The scale of humanitarian aid to the poor and unstable regions of the world grows, but it is highly vulnerable to corruption, with food aid, construction and other highly valued assistance as the most at risk.[10] Food aid can be directly and physically diverted from its intended destination, or indirectly through the manipulation of assessments, targeting, registration and distributions to favour certain groups or individuals.[10] Elsewhere, in construction and shelter, there are numerous opportunities for diversion and profit through substandard workmanship, kickbacks for contracts and favouritism in the provision of valuable shelter material.[10] Thus while humanitarian aid agencies are usually most concerned about aid being diverted by including too many, recipients themselves are most concerned about exclusion.[10] Access to aid may be limited to those with connections, to those who pay bribes or are forced to give sexual favours.[10] Equally, those able to do so may manipulate statistics to inflate the number beneficiaries and siphon off additional assistance.[10]”

Kleptocracy
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleptocracy

“Kleptocracy, alternatively cleptocracy or kleptarchy, (from Greek: κλέπτης – kleptēs, “thief”[1] and κράτος – kratos, “power, rule”,[2] hence “rule by thieves”) is a form of political and government corruption where the government exists to increase the personal wealth and political power of its officials and the ruling class at the expense of the wider population, often without pretense of honest service. This type of government corruption is often achieved by the embezzlement of state funds.”

“Kleptocracies are generally associated with corrupt forms of authoritarian governments, particularly dictatorships, oligarchies, military juntas, or some other forms of autocratic and nepotist government in which no outside oversight is possible, due to the ability of the kleptocrat(s) to personally control both the supply of public funds and the means of determining their disbursal. Kleptocratic rulers typically treat their country’s treasury as though it were their own personal bank account, spending the funds on luxury goods as they see fit. Many kleptocratic rulers also secretly transfer public funds into secret personal numbered bank accounts in foreign countries in order to provide them with continued luxury if/when they are eventually removed from power and forced to leave the country.”

Conditional Aid
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_aid

“A major proportion of aid from donor nations is tied, mandating that a receiving nation spend on products and expertise originating only from the donor country. [15] Eritrea discovered that it would be cheaper to build its network of railways with local expertise and resources rather than be forced to spend aid money on foreign consultants, experts, architects and engineers imposed on the country as a condition of development assistance.[15] US law requires food aid be spent on buying food at home, instead of where the hungry live, and, as a result, half of what is spent is used on transport.[16] Oxfam America and American Jewish World Service report that reforming US food aid programs could extend food aid to an additional 17.1 million people around the world.[17]”

“The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, as primary holders of developing countries’ debt, attach structural adjustment conditionalities to loans which generally include the elimination of state subsidies and the privatization of state services. For example, the World Bank presses poor nations to eliminate subsidies for fertilizer even while many farmers cannot afford them at market prices.[18]”

Many of the churches have accepted conditional aid through the 501c3 program which imposes laws on the churches concerning what they can an cannot preach and activities which they can and cannot participate in.

Aid Destination
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_aid

“It is true that aid is rarely given for motives of pure altruism. However, it is important to look at where aid goes. For example, “only about one fifth of U.S. aid goes to countries classified by the OECD as ‘least developed.’”[36] This “pro-rich” trend is not unique to the United States.[36][37] According to Collier, “the middle income countries get aid because they are of much more commercial and political interest than the tiny markets and powerlessness of the bottom billion.”[38] What this means is that, at the most basic level, aid is not targeting the most extreme poverty.[36][37]”

“The form of aid must also be considered. The World Bank, until recently, issued only loans, meaning that the country must repay both the loan and the interest rates. In contrast, the European Commission issues grants, which countries need not worry about paying back. This means that “loans have been going to the poorest countries and the grants to the middle-income countries.”[38]”

Your Tax Dollar And Foreign Aid
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_foreign_aid

“United States foreign aid is aid given by the United States to other countries. It can be divided into two broad categories: military and economic assistance. It is given by the United States government, and by private organizations and individuals in the United States. Foreign aid has been given to a variety of recipients, including developing countries, countries of strategic importance to the United States, and countries recovering from war. The government channels about half of its economic assistance through a specialized agency, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).”

“The 2010 United States federal budget spent $52.7 billion out of $3.55 trillion (1.5%) on foreign aid. $15.0 billion was military; $37.7 billion was economic aid (of which USAID received $14.1 billion).[1]”

The Poor Will Get Poorer

Proverbs 22:16 “He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.”

The Scriptures reveal that those who give to the rich instead of the poor will become poor. If one is already poor and giving to the rich, The Scriptures prophesy that one will become poorer. This is the total opposite of what the religious men teach. This is what is happening to a lot of people in these last days. The poor are blind and are not taking out the time to assess who is rich and who is poor. Those who are poor or middle class are breaking their necks to “sow a money seed” as the religious men are instructing them to do and are getting in debt behind this false teaching about what sow a seed is. The people are falling prey to this teaching mainly because they are not reading The Scriptures for themselves to verify if whether or not the religious men are teaching the truth.

The poor have a zeal to depart with their money under the false belief that the one they call “God” is going to increase their wealth.

They Are False Mediators

1 Timothy 2:5 “For there is one Yahuwah, and one mediator between Yahuwah and men, the man Mashyach Yahuwshuwah;”

The people of Yahuwah do not need a mediator between them and the poor. If the people of Yahuwah want to give to the poor, we can do it directly. We need to take out the time to assess who is poor and who is not poor. The people of Yahuwah need to understand that giving of ones sustenance does not have to be in the form of money.

The people of Yahuwah have one Mediator and that is Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal Mashyach.

Times Have Changed Research Who You Are Giving To

We do have a witness in The Scriptures that the apostles served as a type of mediator between the poor and the better off among the people of Yahuwah for the donations to the poor, but we also have a witness that those apostles were the ministers of Yahuwah.

Giving requires research to who you are giving to and for what purpose you are giving to.

The people of Yahuwah should know whom they are giving to and for what purpose. Furthermore, the people of Yahuwah should research if whether or not the purpose was fulfilled.

There was a time when I was short on clothes because I had to abandon my clothes in a hurry to leave one state to move to another state. There are those who probably noticed that I was wearing the same things over and over again. Those people gave me some clothes. Those people know that I, the recipient, received those clothes because they put the clothes in my hands personally. Those people know that the clothes they gave me are being used because when they see me, they see that I am wearing the clothes they gave me.

The Working Disciples

Acts 20:34 “Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.”

1 Corinthians 4:12 “And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:”

Does this sound like ministers who were misusing or living off the funds the congregation gave them for the poor? The disciples worked with their own hands.
“Fleecing The Flock”

Fleece:
1 a : to strip of money or property by fraud or extortion b : to charge excessively for goods or services

The practice of “fleecing the flock” is rampant even in third world countries where people are in dire financial conditions. There are ministers that are millionaires even in some of the third word countries. The people of Yahuwah need to stop attempting to clean up the messes of corrupt officials and corrupt religious leaders, and give financial offerings and donations to endeavors that are more certain (endeavors in which you know the offering has been used for the purpose you intended).

Pray that the kingdom of Yahuwah come so that the corrupt officials and corrupt religious leaders will cease in the land.

The Flock Should Manage Its Finances Appropriately

The ministers and the congregation are here to provide mainly spiritual food and spiritual support to the congregation and not financial support. Financial support is for the poor among the people of Yahuwah first. The people of Yahuwah need to do all that they can to manage their finances as best they can to prevent becoming a burden unnecessarily to the congregation through mismanagement of money. The people of Yahuwah should not make risky financial decisions with the thought in the mind and heart, “I know the congregation is there to catch me “if” I should fail in this risky venture and investment” keeping in mind that the ministers and the congregation have the authority to inquire and investigate what led up to the financial fall of the members of the congregation. The ministers and the congregation have the authority and should inquire and investigate why a member of the congregation needs their money.

Who Is Considered Rich?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_class_in_the_United_States

“Social class in the United States is a controversial issue, having many competing definitions, models, and even disagreements over its very existence.[1] Many Americans believe in a simple three-class model that includes the “rich”, the “middle class”, and the “poor”. More complex models that have been proposed describe as many as a dozen class levels;[2][3] while still others deny the very existence, in the European sense, of “social class” in American society.[4] Most definitions of class structure group people according to wealth, income, education, type of occupation, and membership in a specific subculture or social network.”

“Income and wealth statistics may serve as a helpful guideline as they can be measured in a more objective manner. In 2005, approximately one and a half percent (1.5%) of households in the United States had incomes exceeding $250,000 with the top 5% having incomes exceeding $157,000.[19] Furthermore only 2.6% of households held assets (excluding home equity) of more than one-million dollars. One could therefore fall under the assumption that less than five percent of American society are members of rich households. The richest 1% of the American population owns as much as the combined wealth of the bottom 90%,[20] or perhaps even more.[21]”

“Members of the upper class control and own significant portions of the corporate America and may exercise indirect power through the investment of capital. The high salaries and the potential for amassing great wealth through stock options have greatly increased for the power and visibility of the “corporate elite”. Many sociologists and commentators, however, make a distinction between the upper class (in the sense of those in the families of inherited wealth) and the corporate elite. By implication, the upper class is held in lower regard (as inheritors of idle wealth) than the self-made millionaires in prestigious occupations.[22]”

“Yet another important feature of the upper class is that of inherited privilege. While most Americans, including those in the upper-middle class need to actively maintain their status, upper class persons do not need to work in order to maintain their status. Status tends to be passed on from generation to generation without each generation having to re-certify its status.[13] Overall, the upper class is the financially best compensated and one of the most influential socio-economic classes in American society.”

Household Income Distribution

Source: US Census Bureau, 2006; income statistics for the year 2005
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_class_in_the_United_States

Bottom 10% = $0 to $10,500
Bottom 20% = $0 to $18,500
Bottom 25% = $0 to $22,500
Middle 33% = $30,000 to $62,500
Middle 20% = $35,000 to $55,000
Top 25% = $77,500 and up
Top 20% = $92,000 and up
Top 5% = $167,000 and up
Top 1.5% = $250,000 and up
Top 1% = $350,000 and up

The people of Yahuwah need to assess which income class (bottom, middle, or top) a minister falls in because this can be an indication if whether or not the minister is a true minister of Yahuwah. We need to also consider how many family members are in a household.

Mass Affluent
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_affluent

“Mass affluent and emerging affluent are marketing terms used to refer to the high end of the mass market. It is most commonly used by the financial services industry to refer to individuals with US$100,000 to US$1,000,000 of liquid financial assets,[1] although the exact definition varies. It is also used by marketers of consumer products to refer to consumers with an annual household income of about US$75,000 and up. Mass affluent consumers are an important target market for sellers of affordable luxuries.”

Extreme Affluent
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affluence_in_the_United_States#Extreme_affluence

“As of 2002, there were approximately 146,000 (0.1%) households with incomes exceeding $1,500,000, while the top 0.01% or 11,000 households had incomes exceeding $5,500,000. The 400 highest tax payers in the nation had gross annual household incomes exceeding $87,000,000. Household incomes for this group have risen more dramatically than for any other. As a result the gap between those who make less than one and half million dollars annually (99.9% of households) and those who make more (0.1%) has been steadily increasing, prompting The New York Times to proclaim that the “Richest Are Leaving Even the Rich Far Behind.”[41]”

The Rich Telev-Angel-ists Are Not A Scriptural Concept

If the minister of your congregation receives a salary from the congregation and it puts the minister in one of the top salaries, they have surpassed the income level of the upper middle class and are considered rich in our modern times, therefore, that congregation has a problem and should inquire and investigate why their minister is getting rich because this is not the norm for the ministers of the people of Yahuwah who are prophesied to be persecuted and robbed for the sake of Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal and for righteousness sake in these last days.

The disciples emphasized that despite their ministerial duties in the work of Yahuwah to the congregation, they worked with their own hands, and did not draw salaries from the donations for the poor received from the congregation.

The Power To Eat And Drink
1 Corinthians 9:1-14

1 “Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Yahuwshuwah Mashyach our Master? are not ye my work in the Master? 2 If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Master. 3 Mine answer to them that do examine me is this, 4 Have we not power to eat and to drink? 5 Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Master, and Kaphah (Cephas)? 6 Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to forbear working? 7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? 8 Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also? 9 For it is written in the law of Mashah (Moses), Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth Yahuwah take care for oxen? 10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. 11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? 12 If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the bashuwrah (gospel) of Mashyach. 13 Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14 Even so hath the Master ordained that they which preach the bashuwrah (gospel) should live of the bashuwrah (gospel).”

The context of 1 Corinthians 9:1-14 is in reference to a visiting or traveling minister of Yahuwah. Notice the apostle Shauwl (Paul) is speaking about food and drink. When a minister of Yahuwah visits a congregation, the congregation is responsible for seeing that the basic needs of the ministers of Yahuwah are taken care of like lodging, food, and drink which is exactly what an ox is given. The ministers of Yahuwah should not have to look for work in the area which they visit to provide for their basic needs or provide gold, silver, and brass in their purse before they visit a congregation. Some in the Corinthian congregation were complaining about providing the basic needs of the ministers and the needs of the ministers that brought their wives along when the ministers visited them. The wives were considered extra mouths to feed and give drink. The ministers of Yahuwah stayed in the house of the worthy members of the congregation as Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal commanded them to do. They were not put up in expensive and luxurious hotels.

There is not a generalized commandment or instruction that all the congregations in every city are to provide a continuous salary of money to the ministers of Yahuwah, especially if they have a regular and customary job.

“I Robbed Other Congregations”

2 Corinthians 11:8 “I robbed other congregations, taking wages of them, to do you service. 9 And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself.”

1 Corinthians 9:1-14 already explained that the issue the apostle Shauwl (Paul) is addressing is the issue of their basic needs being met of food and drink. The wage of the ox is lodging, food, and drink, and these are some of the supplies the Macedonians gave the apostles.

At this point, I want to mention again that the congregation of Yahuwah did not ask the general public for offerings. The congregation of Yahuwah asked the members of the congregation of Yahuwah for offerings.

I am not advocating that money should not be given to support the needs of the poor or for other congregation administrations. Money can be given for these purposes, but in these last days request for offerings of money is being abused and the congregation of Yahuwah should not be contributing to making any minister rich.

Sow The True Seed Of The Word Of The Kingdom And Righteousness

The people of Yahuwah are commanded to sow seed (the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah) by spreading the word of Yahuwah to all nations so that the seed (the word of the kingdom of Yahuwah) will produce fruit (believers). The people of Yahuwah can sow seed by freely giving the information in my presentations to others, that is, if you believe what is taught in my presentations.

The people of Yahuwah know that there is no amount of money that can be given to any minister or any project in the world that can bribe Yahuwah into letting them into His kingdom and there is no amount of money that can be given as a substitute for sowing the fruit of new believers and the fruit of righteousness in our lives.

My $273 will remain in the bank.
