In February 2014 or thereabouts, I was an attendee at a vigil to seek the face of the Lord in prayer. At the end, a Financial Programe was announced for those who were interested. The announcer proved the benefits and workabilty of the "International Financial Plan" beyond reasonable doubts.
It is left for an individual to decide whether to join or not, so I kept mum.
Another attendee, an Apostle, later came to discuss it with me because he was elated by what he heard.
I said nothing so that I will not discourage him or appear to impose my opinion on him.
Finally, he wanted to know when I intent to join and I replied,
"The plan will surely fail although those who joined early will benefit for a season."
He was sad to hear this but I encouraged him to go ahead if he was convinced to do so. He realised a few dollars for about two months and everything totally colapsed.
This is not the only plan or project that had failed or can fail.
A few years ago, the world economy was "shaken" to its root. Experts started to have sleepless nights. They met together to devise means of reviving it.
Do you want to engage in the best investment? It is the only one that nothing can affect to destroy it. In the words of He, who had been given all authority in heaven and on earth,
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves
break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where thieves do not break in and steal." Matthew 6:19-20.
The Best Investment you can engage in is in the things of God and with Him. You will reap the multiple benefits here on earth and there in Heaven. Do not forget (or be known to you) that the hosts of heaven are aware of everything going on earth. They keep records of everything you do here, good or evil.
A wise senior Army officer in Caeserea in Bible days was a very wise investor. He was "a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always."
Please pay attention to this: He invested all that he had. There was nothing he did not invest in things of God to please Him ONLY. These are his
What was the response of the angels (hosts) of heaven to his investment? An angel of God declared to him,
" Your prayer and alms have come up for a memorial before God." Acts 10:1-4.
Do you even know that if you want to demonstrate your love for God you cannot afford to do less than what this man did? You must know that
"whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, " the love of God does not abide in him. IJohn 3:7 NKJV.
If you want the Best Returns On your Investment, lay your treasures in a safe "strong room" in heaven. You will reap it on earth and in heaven. If Cornelius did not loose his investments and Retuns, you will not.
There are testimonies to back this up but I purposed not to bother you with any because I want you to have yours soonest. Go and invest all that you have in the things of God!
Stay blessed and rapturable because the Lord Jesus is coming soon.
