Interlude: When?

When will we Christians freely give of our time and our effort without charging a penny for it?

When will we take the "donation" button from off of our websites?

When will we truly desire to make the truth known and stop charging people money to hear about the information that God so kindly and graciously allowed us to know and discover? When?

From the internet (emphases ours)--

Solving the Mystery of BABYLON THE GREAT is an important book. It is based upon years of research and verifies the truth of the prophecies in the Bible and presents authoritative evidence of the fulfillment of those prophecies in our time. The book pulls back the veil of secrecy and exposes the people and religions at the nucleus of the world conspiracy against man and God. The book is not based upon speculation, it contains over 900 endnotes documenting hard, unimpeachable facts.

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6.

"But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand." Ezekiel 33:6.

When is this practice going to stop? When? The hour is late and the time of that Wicked is near. WHEN WILL WE MAKE THE TRUTH KNOWN WITHOUT CHARGE? And what will happen to the watchman that says, "It will cost you $9.99 for a pdf version of this book"?

Even if attempting to sell a hard copy, why not at least let the file be available online for anyone to read freely?

It does not matter how long it took the author to figure out the information and it does not matter how much it cost the author to obtain the research materials--all he has to do is just tell what he found. Let him lay up that fine treasure on the other side and not here. It will be waiting for him. His reward will be all the more glorious and he will shine that much more eminently.

For now, let him plainly tell the matter for the edification, exhortation, and comfort of God's church. He that pitieth the poor, lendeth to the Lord--the Lord will pay you back, don't worry about that, he will pay you back for making known his message that he gave you and equipped you to be able to tell. Just thrive and make known without charge. Isn't it already payment enough that you are not ignorant in this evil time? In this midnight region of gross darkness? Is it not payment enough to clearly see what is happening in the midst of this situation? To have God reveal to you that which was hidden? To be blessed beyond measure in the midst of a dry and thirsty land where there is no water and where there is a famine? To be well watered, fat, and flourishing in these times? Is it not payment enough to be blessed by God and to be the recipient of his singular favors toward you? Is it not enough?

The love of money is the root of all evil and in the case of Christians withholding the truth for a few coins, this evil is very great. Concerning internet publishers, God has blessed us and given us a forum by which to widely disseminate and make known the truth. WHY WOULD WE HOLD BACK INFORMATION FOR A FEW COINS WHEN PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS????????????????????????????????????? WHY, OH WHY, WOULD WE DO THIS????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? WHY???????????????????????????? WHY?????????????????????????? DO WE HAVE NO SENSE OF THE URGENCY AND OF THE LATENESS OF THIS HOUR?

Would we want to be traitors holding back information that our fellowcitizens in the kingdom of God need? They need it and so do their children. In these days of apostasy, they may not hear it elsewhere. Do they have to pay to get information from their own body? If the hand has already procured the information, does the foot have to pay to access it to? Or does the hand say to the foot, "Pay up or go get it yourself!" I have no such schism in my corporeal body--why in the body of Christ? Why not get the information and distribute it ASAP (as soon as possible) to the body of Christ that he cares about deeply and is protecting???????? The body that he died and bled for and interceeds for? We are the body of Christ and members in particular. How does he feel about those that love on his people and distribute to them freely? What kind of favor and honour and power will such an one receive? Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ said in the Revelation that he would grant to sit in his throne him that overcometh as he overcame and is set in his Father's throne. The Lord Jesus Christ is the KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS. What an amazing picture comes to mind in thinking of that illustrious, all powerful King granting me that type of highness in privilege! Christian worker, let it loose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let the truth loose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let the information loose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let it flow out like torrential rivers and let it water the whole earth!!!!!!!!!! Let the deluge begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Open up the spigot truth-teller and let the truth be known!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lift it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Magnify it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cease not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't hold back! Lift up thy voice like a trumpet and make this thing known!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The truth is fallen in the street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pick it up and open up your mouth and make it known!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who cares about the rest, the silver and the coins???????????????? Soon it will all be cast to the moles and to the bats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The end is here and people don't know what is going on. Who is going to tell it? Should the few that know it keep silent with a upturned palm stuck out for some money? For some gain and remuneration for the critical endtimes information that God gave to them to give to his church? It is God's church, not a field from which to make merchandise. We Christians are soldiers, not merchants, and these people are our brothers and sisters. We are all only one family no matter what color we are and no matter where we live and no matter what language we speak and no matter what prejudices and evilness may still lie latent within our breasts. We need to come together and be one and love each other because we are a family and all members of one body--the body of Christ. We have done wickedly for too long. It is time to repent and put pride, evilness, greed, and covetousness in the trash can. It is time to come together and to grow up and rise up to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. Now is the time. Now is the time to come together in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man. Now is the time. And when we do that, we can expect God to meet us and we won't be weak anymore, we will be strong. Let's turn back to the days of Acts and apostolic love and power. Daniel 11:28 says that the wicked will be doing exploits but if you read down a few verses to verse 32, you'll discover that so will we! This is a war--the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God.

DANIEL 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries:
but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many:
yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.

INSTRUCT **********MANY*********** (Daniel 11:33)

[Thoughts: From my perspective, not a few Calvinistic, puritanical types seem to seek out monetary remuneration with especial fervor (I've encountered them as sellers of old books). They are not alone in this quest for money, but I have noticed this about them through the years. I have also noticed that they are very quick to berate others and call them names (it's as if anyone who doesn't say something about "covenanters" (or something like that) is a stranger to them). The King James translators noted this characteristic of theirs by saying how the "self conceited brethren" give liking to nothing but what is hammered on their own anvil...I think that sometimes people do not care about sharing information because maybe they are not saved. How to Get Eternal Life...Sometimes we can fall in love with data and ministry and forget our first love. We need to get back to the communion table and back to prayer and back to time with our Lord and back to more extensive Bible reading and back to presenting ourselves (our bodies, minds, spirits, lives, and desires and goods and property and time and talents) as living sacrifices before him. May all that we are and all that we have be consecrated unto the Lord to be used in the manner that he chooses. And may we live simply in the work lifestyle, studying to be quiet doing our own business.]
