Levite...the minister of the gospel (by EIGHT)

Commissioned to ministry, he was called to be a Levite

His work was service and he vowed to live right

God was the focus of his life and all that he’d write

Making a living as a minister-one of his lead fights

We wonder: shelter, clothing plus what he’d feed, right?

His brothers should give but what if they didn’t tithe?

Is he to die of brokenness and still speak life?

Should he pause his ministry? Or maybe make it biz’ like?

Maybe he could use his skills to foot his bills?

Coz thru these deals dude would school his kids

Began to do his gigs less and less as a minister

Began to do these things more or less as a businessman...



Don get me wrong, nothing’s wrong with making money

But it shouldn’t be the driving force to sharing testimony

Gifts and talents are tools we use to save souls

Don’t loosely use the Truth to jus make dough

Christ didn’t preach jus to make some cents for his needs

His love for the lost-that's the sense that we need!

Neither did He share parables at a special fee

He did so so as to teach and set all free

Ministry without love for the lost of course is off the course

Your gift, your passion or job is not your source

A truthful reminder and caution for Levi

Jehovah Jireh is faithful - He's our portion forever


King, may we seek You first; Spirit reveal to us

Your living Truth plus, how to live in true trust

(Brethren) Me and you must first seek

Jesus heart

Have our knees become foreigners to our floors?

Has Jesus become a foreigner in our flows?

Do we turn down ministry because of the pay?

Or because when you prayed, that was what Jehovah had said?

We don't earn fame and fortune-they come from favour

We are to stay faithful, they are not returns on labour

With ALL that we have, let’s be good stewards

As we live and lean towards turning faith into works

Ministers are called to a life full of faith, let's face it!

Nobody said it's gonna be easy but by grace we make it

Levites serving for self commit a sin of fraud

The scriptures show ministers live(d) off God

This is not to get controversial, get you worried or hesitant

Jus to say that God promised HE IS our inheritance!


EIGHT 2010


--

Not enough words to articulate this but well.......!

Numbers 18:20
The LORD said to Aaron, "You will have no inheritance in their land, nor will you have any share among them; I am your share and your inheritance among the Israelites."

Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

1Peter 4:10-11
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. If you speak, you should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If you serve, you should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

THE ATHEIST'S CREED by English Journalist, SteveTurner.

We believe in Marx, Freud and Darwin. We believe everything is okay as long as you don’t hurt anyone, to the best of your definition of hurt and to the best of your definition of knowledge. We believe in sex before, during and after marriage. We believe in the therapy of sin, that adultery is fun and we believe that taboos are taboo. We believe that everything is getting better despite evidence to the contrary. Evidence must be investigated and you can prove anything with evidence. We believe there is something in horoscopes, UFOs and bent spoons. Jesus was a good man just like Buddha, Mohammed and ourselves. He was a good moral teacher although we believe that some of his good morals were really bad. We believe that all religions are basically the same. They all believe in love and goodness and only differ on matters of creation, sin, heaven, hell, God and salvation. We believe that after death comes the nothing because when you ask the dead what happens they say nothing! If death is not the end, and the dead have lied, then it’s compulsory heaven for all excepting perhaps Hitler, Stalin and Genghis Khan. We believe in Masters and Johnson, what’s selected is average, what’s average is normal what’s normal is good. We believe in total disarmament because we believe there are direct links between warfare and bloodshed. Americans should beat their guns into tractors and the Russians would be sure to follow. We believe that man is essentially good, it’s only his behaviour that let’s him down. This is the fault of society, society is the fault of conditions and conditions are the fault of society. We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him and reality will adapt accordingly. The universe will re-adjust, history will alter. We believe that there is no absolute truth except in the truth that there is no absolute truth. We believe in the rejecting of truth and the flowering of individual thought.

Post Script
If chance be the father of all flesh, disaster is his rainbow in the sky, and when you hear: ‘state of emergency’, ‘sniper kills ten’, ‘troops on rampage’, ‘youths go looting’, ‘bomb-blast school’, it is but the sound of man worshiping his maker.
