There are many successful businesses that pay a commission back to Charitable corporations, like ours, when we advertise for them.

Our ministry has been chosen to to receive commissions from some of these companies. At the top of this page you will see advertisement links from those companies.

The only way our ministry will receive credit is if you click on that advertisement, then as you browse through the list of products and place an order for items sold by these companies, the company will send the product directly to you. That company will then send us a commission, and you have supported our ministry.

 

………THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…….

 IT IS EASIER FOR A CAMEL TO GO THROUGH
THE EYE OF A NEEDLE THAN A RICH MAN TO
ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
( MARK 10:25 *NKJV )

This verse has been misunderstood by
many people.  Some even believe that being
successful is a sin.  Well, they could not be further
from the truth, for it is written BELOVED, I PRAY THAT
YOU MAY PROSPER IN ALL THINGS AND BE IN
GOOD HEALTH, JUST AS YOUR SOUL
PROSPERS.  ( 3 JOHN 2 )

what Jesus was referring to in the first
verse was a person who loved their money more
than they loved their Heavenly Father.  For you see,
in Jesus’ time many people were very unscrupulous,
and their money came from ill-gotten gain!
[ Not much different than today! ]

The other thing people often do not understand
is the “Eye of the Needle.”  You see in Jesus’ time
all villages were surrounded by a wall for protection
from their enemies.  Each village had a main gate
open only in the daytime, and a small side gate for
night entry.   This small gate was called the “needle!”

Now those with stolen goods would try to sneak
into town at night through that small gate.  One
problem they had was a camel could not walk
through this small gate with a load on its back,
so the load had to be removed.  Then the camel
would still have to walk on its knees to enter
through the gate.   Not an easy task to say the
least, especially for the poor camel!

So, know in your heart that as long
as you keep God Number One in your life, you
may prosper, and  be successful on Earth and
still enter the Kingdom of God as well!  For it is
written, MAY THEY PROSPER WHO LOVE YOU.
PEACE BE WITHIN YOUR WALLS, PROSPERITY
WITHIN YOUR PALACES!  ( PSALM 122:6-7 )
