“Your Storehouses” Pt 3

“The Principle of Preparation”

Deut 28:8 The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand…

1 Chr 29:1Then King David said to the entire assembly, “My son Solomon, whom alone God has chosen, is still young and inexperienced and the work is great; for the temple is not for man, but for the Lord God.

DAVID WANTED A PLACE FOR GOD THAT HE WOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE IN

2 Now for the house of my God I have prepared with all my might: gold for things to be made of gold, silver for things of silver, bronze for things of bronze, iron for things of iron, wood for things of wood, onyx stones, stones to be set, glistening stones of various colors, all kinds of precious stones, and marble slabs in abundance. 3 Moreover, because I have set my affection on the house of my God, I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house, my own special treasure of gold and silver:

1 Chr 22 DAVID PREPARED FROM THE NATIONAL TREASURY; THIS IS FROM HIS OWN STOREHOUSE!

4 three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the houses

DAVIDS OWN STOREHOUSE $5,760,000,000 IN GOLD – 179,200,000 IN SILVER = (5,939,200,000 TOTAL)

TOTAL BETWEEN THE NATIONAL TREASURY & DAVID WOULD BE ALMOST 200 BILLION IN GOLD & 2 TRILLION IN SILVER

6 Then the leaders of the fathers’ houses, leaders of the tribes of Israel, the captains of thousands and of hundreds, with the officers over the king’s work, offered willingly. 7 They gave for the work of the house of God five thousand talents and ten thousand darics of gold, ten thousand talents of silver, eighteen thousand talents of bronze, and one hundred thousand talents of iron. 8 And whoever had precious stones gave them to the treasury of the house of the Lord, into the hand of Jehiel the Gershonite.

9,600,000. IN GOLD – 3,560,000 IN DARICS – 256,000,000 IN SILVER

9 Then the people rejoiced, for they had offered willingly, because with a loyal heart they had offered willingly to the Lord; and King David also rejoiced greatly. 10 Therefore David blessed the Lord before all the assembly; and David said: “Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, And You are exalted as head over all. 12 Both riches and honor come from You, And You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; In Your hand it is to make great And to give strength to all. 13 “Now therefore, our God, We thank You And praise Your glorious name. 14 But who am I, and who are my people, That we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, And of Your own we have given You.

THE PLAN WAS FROM GOD
Ch 28:19 “All this”, said David, “The Lord made me understand in writing by His hand upon me, all the details of this pattern”

GOD IS NOT OFFENDED BY MONEY.

GOD PUT THE WEALTH OF THIS WORLD HERE FOR THE CHURCH.
HE PUT IT HERE FOR US TO USE IT WISELY AND PROPERLY DISTRIBUTE IT FOR HIS GLORY.

GOD IS A GOD OF RESERVES… A GOD OF STOREHOUSES
Ps 33:7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars;
he puts the deep into storehouses.

Mal 3:10 MENTIONS THE TITHE GOING INTO THE STOREHOUSE…

A STOREHOUSE IS A FOUNDATION UPON WHICH WE CAN ESTABLISH THE KINGDOM AND THAT INCLUDES OUR PERSONAL LIVES.

Matt 24 – PARABLE OF THE TEN VIRGINS (5 Foolish, 5 Prudent)

WHAT DO YOU HAVE PLANTED FOR THE FUTURE?

Prov 13:22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.

THERE’S STABILITY IN STOREHOUSES.

Amp Prov 13:11 He who gathers little by little will increase (his riches)

WHEN YOUR LIFE ENDS WHAT LEGACY WILL YOU LEAVE BEHIND?

Gen 12:2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you,
And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

“Your Storehouses” Pt 4

“Positioned to make a difference”

Deut. 28:8 The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand…

GOD WANTS US TO OPERATE IN HIS CYCLE OF BLESSING!

JESUS PARABLE OF THE TEN VIRGINS SPEAKS OF THE WISDOM OF RESERVES OR STOREHOUSES.

GOD WILL WORK THROUGH OUR PREPARATIONS.

THE JOSEPH PRINCIPLE IS BUILT ON 3 KEY TRUTHS.
1. There are cycles of prosperity and recession in every economy
2. During times of prosperity, surplus should be saved and not consumed
3. In times of recession, that surplus can be multiplied in to more wealth as it is used to meet the needs of others

THE ECONOMY LIKE THE WEATHER COMES IN SEASONS & CYCLES (Eccl 3)
THERE’S A TIME TO PUT MORE IN & A TIME TO PUT LESS IN
THERE’S A TIME TO GIVE OUT OF IT AND A TIME TO REPLINISH
A TIME TO SAVE CONSERVATIVELY AND A TIME TO BE BUILD AGGRESSIVELY.

THE ANT – Prov. 6:6 Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise,

7 Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler, 8 Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest.

THE ANT IS NOT JUST THINKING ABOUT TODAY BUT SHE’S PREPARING FOR TOMORROW.

THE ANT NEVER STOPS WORKING ON HER STOREHOUSE AND ALWAYS HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH

ANTS DON’T LIVE IN DENIAL, CONSUMING ALL THEY HAVE TODAY

EVEN IF THE ANT CAN ONLY PUT ONE GRAIN AT A TIME INTO THE STOREHOUSE, SHE STILL DOES IT.

THE ANTS STOREHOUSES ARE IN A LARGE NETWORK OF UNDERGROUND TUNNELS (

THE ANTS STOREHOUSES HAVE DIFFERENT PURPOSES

ANTS DON’T EXPECT ANYONE ELSE TO TAKE CARe OF THEM

A STOREHOUSE SHOULD NOT ONLY BE A BLESSING FOR OUR SELVES BUT A RESOURCE OF BLESSING TO TOUCH OTHERS.

WITHOUT A STOREHOUSE WE ARE SUBCONCIOUSLY PLANNING FOR SOMEBODY ELSE TO TAKE CARE OF US.

START BUILDING A STOREHOUSE FOR YOUR FUTURE TODAY!
A SPIRITUAL STOREHOUSE
A NATURAL STOREHOUSE
A MENTAL STOREHOUSE

YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING AND OBEDIENT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE NOT WHAT YOU HOPE TO HAVE SOMEDAY.

“Your Storehouses” Pt 1

“Understanding God through creation”

Deut 28:8 The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand…

UNDERSTANDING GOD THROUGH THE ELEMENTS OF SPACE, TIME, AND KNOWLEDGE

Is 40:12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, and marked off the heavens by the span, and calculated the dust of the earth by the measure, and weighed the mountains in a balance, and the hills in a pair of scals?

15 Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are regarded as a speck of dust on the scales; Behold, He lifts up the islands like fine dust.

17 All the nations are as nothing before Him, The yare regarded by Him as less than nothing and meaningless.
18 To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare with Him?

Jer 10:12 It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom; And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.

Ps 19:1 The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.

Rom 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

THE EARTH AND ITS DEMINSIONS – AT EQUATER – 24,875 MILES AROUND

THE SUN – IS 93 MILLION MILES AWAY

THE EARTH IS ORBITING AROUND THE SUN AND ROTATING ON ITS AXIS IN THE PROCESS.
WE ARE MOVING ABOUT 18 MILES EVERY SECOND.

LIGHT – LIGHT TRAVELS AT ABOUT 186,000 MILES PER SECOND

WHEN LIGHT LEAVES THE SUN IT TAKES THE LIGHT ABOUT 8 MINUTES TO GET TO THE EARTH.

OUR SUN IS APPROXIMATELY 1 OF 100 BILLION STARS IN OUR GALAXY ALONE.

THE NEXT CLOSEST STAR TO OUR PLANET IS ABOUT 4.27 LIGHT YRS AWAY.
THE LIGHT THAT LEAVES THAT STAR IS TRAVELING AT 186,000 MILES PER SEC

THE EDGE OF OUR OBSERVABLE UNIVERSE IS ABOUT 100 BILLION LIGHT YRS AWAY…

2 Chr 6:18 But will God indeed dwell with mankind on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain Thee; how much less this house which I have built.

Ps 8:3 When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, The moon and the stars, which Thou has ordained; 4 What is man, that Thou dost take thought of him? And the son of man, that Thou dost care for him?

GOD IS MORE INTERESTED IN YOU THAN HE IS THE OTHER GALAXIES…

5 Yet Thou has made him a little lower than God, and dost crown him with glory and majesty! 6 Thou dost make him to rule over the works of Thy hands; Thou has put all things under his feet.

Gen 1:14 The God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years.

Gen 2:12 And the Gold of that land is good; The bdellium and the onyx stone are there. (Gold, stones and perfume)

THE REASON HE TOLD ADAM WHERE IT WAS IS BECAUSE HE KNEW THERE WAS GOING TO BE AN EVE.
