"ALL THESE THINGS
WILL I GIVE THEE, IF THOU WILT FALL DOWN AND WORSHIP ME"—Satan, Matthew 4:9
Said the “KING of kings,” “My kingdom is not of this world.” Jn.18:36
Behold the riches of men, both in and out of the Christian
faith. How they spare no expense for themselves. A pope who lives the most lavish life
a man could live. An Arab billionaire with a 24 karat gold sink in the washroom of his $200,000,000 private Boeing jet aircraft.
Or the yachtsman with the largest ship in the marina, and how he gets utterly depressed when another yacht, larger than his
takes up residence.
The riches of
the world are not the lot for the GOD fearing Christian. After the resurrection of Jesus, two extremely wealthy men invested
their riches in the fledgling Christian Church. Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus spent their entire fortunes building the
church for the salvation of men. Even in modern times we have examples, such as a hero of World War II, Oskar Schindler, who
started out as a war profiteer, but whose heart was won to the cause of life’s justice, mercy and love wound up spending
his every penny to save the Jews under his care from certain death. In the Spielberg film, Oskar was mourning bitterly that
he held on to his gold ring that might have saved one more life. Or his car that could have saved several more lives. But
while he bemoaned himself, had he not showed a lavish lifestyle before the Nazis he would have created suspicion, and the
devil delights in the rumors he can create in the mind.
The Wisdom of Solomon addresses every aspect of GOD’S plan of salvation and how to best live our lives in a sinful
world: to be in the world but not of the world (Jn.17:15). Solomon prayed to God and set his heart to find “knowledge,”
“understanding,” and “wisdom.” “Knowledge” is factual information. “Understanding”
is the combination of knowledge with life's experience. And “wisdom” is the practical and public application
of understanding, that, when blessed of GOD, meets the various needs of our lives. Only by this plea to GOD could Solomon
properly serve the kingdom entrusted to his care. God answered the cry of his heart with an abundance of each. And coupled
with this gift from on High came every comfort that a sinful world can provide to a man. Solomon was lavished with everything
both productive and destructive to the human soul. In his life was experienced the summit and the pits of human nature. The
sinful side of his life gives us insight into the final result from indulging in the base passions for the insatiable desires
of this world. What did Solomon discover at the end of his life’s journey? “I have seen all the works that are
done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit” Eccl.1:14. A sense of insatiable emptiness was
all he was left with! Why? “the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.” Eccl.1:8.
How often we hear of stories of men
and women who just want to be genuinely loved, and all the false methods employed to receive it. It’s like the man who
goes to the bar on payday, and everyone is his friend: kind and caring, they give undivided attention to the man with the
money. But when the money runs out, and the drinks stop, so the ‘friends’ disappear. Again, Solomon addressed
this sinful side of man, as he did with every aspect of our lives in a sinful world. Wrote Solomon: “Wealth maketh many
friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.” Prov.19:4.
Jesus had a few choice words on this subject: “And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain
rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to
bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my
fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink,
and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things
be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” “For
what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” “Then Jesus beholding him
[the rich young ruler] loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give
to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.” Lu.12:16-21; Mk.8:36;
Solomon understood what
brings joy to the heart: “Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own
works; for that is his portion.” “Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.”
“Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.” Eccl.3;22; Prov.16:8;
In the end of time the wealth
of Earth will be viewed for what it is: the means to soften the hardships of others and not to build one’s fortune where
upon one’s death, the scavengers come, looking for anything to build their fortune. The prophecies will be fulfilled:
“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship
, to the moles and to the bats” “For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols
of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.” “They shall cast their silver in the streets, and
their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the
LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.”
Isa.2:20; 31:7; Eze.7:19.
believes and patiently waits on the fulfillment of the promise: “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” I Cor.2:9. These
are the riches the saints receive. But this isn’t the reason they follow GOD and His Son Jesus Christ. “God is
love.” And where love leads, the true and Bible obedient Christian follows.
Keepers invites every Christian to join the closing work of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and establish twelve member groups
within your respective country, heralding the titles: Commandment Keepers Kenyan Assembly, British Assemby,
Brazilian Assembly, etc. As the Bible teaches, the redeemed of earth will come from "every nation, and kindred,
and tongue, and people." Rev.14:6. And all will have stood faithful to Christ's Words, "But if thou wilt
enter into life, keep the commandments." Matt.19:17.
To meet the specific cultural
needs of the different peoples of the world, a custom tailored witness is vital for successful evangelism. While the
message of Salvation through the Creator/Christ is universal in its scope, people's cultural affections vary greatly from
land to land. What can bring tears of joy to one group can actually harden the hearts of another.
To receive this ministry outline click "The Evangelists" below. It contains all the materials needed to succeed
in this invaluable type of ministry.
Two reasons for the need of small church
companies at this time in history:
1. There are six branch ministries, which cover all areas of the closing gospel
work, providing each member with an invaluable task. Teamed up in pairs for each of the branch ministries, none
will sit on the sidelines, feeling useless, and where each have equal value to the success of the ministry's
2. Economic streamlining has become an essential factor in the closing work. As America
and other countries proceed in their place in Bible prophecy a structure of ministry must be in place to carry out
the Savior's closing work on the minds and hearts of the people just at the time it is needed the most.
This efficient, low cost approach to the closing work will be lavished with
GOD'S blessing. Each of these small church companies will be given an eloquent, persuasive testimony
by GOD: to share in the most privileged work on Earth: enlightening the world with His Glory: His redeeming love found in
the truth, as the truth is in Jesus:" as Creator of heaven and earth; what He has done: as
bearing the punishment for the sins of men; and what He is doing: interceding on behalf of His faithful children who are continuously
accused of the devil; and what He will do: deliver His faithful children when He comes again.
Through His Presence, Guidance and Intervention, the faith of Bible literate and obedient Christians will swell
to a lofty summit, preparing them for the coming of the LORD.
no tithe is required except to budget your ministry's needs.
