Jesus, Our Heavenly Assurance
Dear Ministry Friends, let us look together at Psalm 103:1-3, that reads, “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.” Yes, Great is the Lord and His Holy Name is greatly to be praised! We are so very grateful to the Father in Heaven that sent us His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, our Wonderful Saviour. He has promised to be with us and never leave us or forsake us. Today is a time in history when we need to know just that, while resting in the assurance of every promise that He has given us. “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8. He will never change! Today, as we face numerous problems in our society most of what is on people’s minds is the uncertainty of the economy of America. Some of our questions may be, what if it crashes? What if we lose so much industry, there will be none, where will we work, what will we do? Good questions, but the Lord has all the answers for us. The Holy Spirit has given me some very “good news” especially for you—which is the Word of God—Jesus our ASSURANCE. “And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.” Isaiah 32:17. The word ASSURANCE among other meanings, means full confidence or trust, freedom from doubt; a promise, to insure and make secure. Beloved, you can have full confidence in the promises of God, don’t doubt, because His word is security and also our insurance IN THE MIDST OF ANY TROUBLE which includes our troubled economy. Yes, we are insured to be taken care of by our Father in Heaven. Yes, you have a Heavenly Word that you can have full trust in. Most people know that when you have an insurance policy, as long as you are paying the premiums you are covered. Well as long as we remain a child of God then we can also be assured that our Calvary premium was paid once and for all and we are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, OUR ASSURANCE. Every promise of God instructs us on what we need to do to reap the full benefits. Many times people will sit down and read their policy to see what benefits they are entitled to and how much. We also have an “assurance” policy that we need to sit down and read and that is the Word of God (Bible) to also see what benefits we are entitled too. Psalm 103:2, reads, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:” Since the world’s economy is in question, then we can be assured that the economy of God is not. The promise above does not read “forget not some of his benefits, but rather it reads, AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS BENEFITS. The economy of God which will never fail us is stimulated by faith and based on our GIVINGS into His kingdom. It is not like Wall Street that when people invested, many lost their life savings, their retirement benefits, etc. The world’s economy is not a sure thing. First they said the bailouts were the answer and now trillions of dollars can’t do it and now they are talking about raising our taxes to get out of the financial troubles. In days to come it will get worse, therefore, you and I were never meant to be dependent on the world’s economy or better known in the bible as the Babylonian system.
We need to be part of God’s economy by investing into the heavenly bank by tithing and bringing offerings. Therefore, there are many principles or keys that unlock the “sure” financial care of the saints in these uncertain days. You and I are not to live in doubt, fear, and insecurity about our care. The Word of God says in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom….” To have assurance of your financial care, you must GIVE! There is no other way to reap of the benefits of the kingdom. The God of Heaven said in Malachi 3:8, “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings” When you tithe and bring offerings then you are investing into heaven’s economy insured to be taken care of by the Father in Heaven. Now is the season to give offerings to the poor and bring your tithes into the storehouse. It is time to invest in a “sure” thing. The poor is not necessarily those that live on skid row, although they could be the poor. There are times that I have been poor, you have been poor, or had times of leanness. In Psalms 41:1-3, it reads, “Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The Lord will strengthen him on the bed of languishing, thou wilt make all his bed in sickness.” This scripture begins with the word, BLESSED is he who considereth the poor. The amplified bible reads HAPPY, fortunate to be envied is he who considers the poor. The word tells us that our God blesses those who are kind to the poor.
Do you want to know what heavenly stock is paying off right now, the best dividends—it is called the poor. It further says that He will help us out of our troubles. Isn’t that a great promise that those that are GIVERS to the poor our Father in heaven will help us out of our troubles. That includes financial troubles because of a bad economy. The second promise is: The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive: and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou will not deliver him unto the will of enemies. When you GIVE AND CONSIDER THE POOR, the Lord will protect you and keep you alive. What an insurance policy! He wants you alive because you are special to him because you are a GIVER to the poor. He needs a true giving heart that can be considered an investor in the stock of heaven. And then further it says, “And he shall be blessed upon the earth.” Yes, he shall be called “blessed” in the earth. He publicly honors them. “And thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.” Can you believe this WONDERFUL promise of God in this scripture, HE WILL DESTROY THE POWER OF YOUR ENEMIES! He will rise up on your behalf. Then next is the promise of God that declares, “The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.” God says He will nurse us back to health when we are ill, He will be right there, He wants the GIVER to have long healthy life, He will not let go of you.
His promises are to sustain, refresh, and strengthen us in times of illness. He will soothe our pain and worries. Should you and I be worried about high health cost with that kind of promise? What a wonderful insurance to be covered under—the blood of Jesus making us heirs to His promises. Just think seven (7) wonderful promises in this scripture of Psalms 41: 1-3. He will bless us if we are GIVERS considering the poor. He will preserve us, He will keep us alive, He will honor us on the earth, He will not deliver us unto the will of our enemies, He will strengthen us and make our bed, then care and nurse us back to health if we should fall into sickness- Glory to God, seven (7) wonderful promises of heavenly insurance. How can the heavenly economy even be compared to the poor, deteriorating economy in America which can also be compared to bags with holes.
***NOW IS THE SEASON***
Are you depending on the world’s economy or bringing tithes, and offerings investing into the heavenly kingdom. Now is the season to bring your best tithe and offerings for those in need. Give to your church or a good ministry and they will know what to do with those offerings. Let them disperse, they know the poor who are among them. Who knows it may be your pastor and His family, or He knows of a family in the community, or a neighbor who is in need. Every year we give something “special” to those that are less fortunate then we are – we help the poor!! I want to do something special for the poor, therefore send you best offering at this time of the year. Jesus said in Matthew 26:11, “For ye have the poor always with you...” Let us invest into the true, everlasting economy of Heaven, where the best stock paying the highest dividends is named “God’s House” and “The Poor” and watch God meet your needs in Jesus name!!
