You may or may not have heard the word Reform of Reformation used many many times in church circles. If you're Apostolic then you hear this word more often than most churchgoers. Everyone if preaching and teaching reform from the churches to our governments on every level. It almost seems as if the whole world seeking some level of reform. But what you don't hear in Christendom is that every reform must be funded. You definitely won't hear how and who's going to pay for it. But anyone who knows anything about history will tell you that reform is change and change of any kind must be funded. And not just partially funded it must be fully funded at every level and every turn.
Full funding is always required to enact true change. We see throughout the word of God that whenever Jehovah wanted to make a big change He always financed to movement in a big way. It takes full funding to cover all the bases of true and lasting change. From Adam, by giving everything He needed in the garden to Abraham with the spoils of war. The Hebrew nation through Joseph second in command of Egypt. Jesus Christ and the Commonwealth funded first-century church onto the Apostle Paul the manager of God's New Testament Treasury. Time and time again we see examples of how God gets things done in the earth. He finds a willing and obedient vessel and then sends them on a fully-funded Kingdom campaign.
It was one of the reasons why the Apostle Paul was so effective at His ministry. In 2 Corinthians 8 Paul paints a brilliant picture of what the Commonwealth of Jesus Christ really looks like. The chapter is titled "The Collection of the Lord's People" NIV. He goes on to describe what is the building and administering of a very large hedge fund. I have placed the URL to the audio below.
This is one of the most important chapters in the Bible. You will probably never hear this chapter preached. Not only that you will probably hear not one scripture of this chapter mention by the clergy period. And to that, I say it is a shame. A shame because this was the Apostle Paul gave us the understanding of how and why He perfected the Commonwealth system of Jesus Christ. He goes on to finish this chapter by saying this: "
"20 Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us:
21 Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord but also in the sight of men."
Wow, what else can I say? The given and administering of those financial gifts grew into an abundance that Paul used to send relief to the saints and churches all over the world or wherever Christians could be found. He even quotes Moses:
"15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over, and he that had gathered little had no lack."
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. What it takes to reform the church is money.
