Audio Broadcast Description:
Rich people in the world are not likely to bring out huge amounts of cash and sow it into a ministry with the expectation that God is going to give them a harvest of even more money because that is not how they built their wealth in the first place.
It is a foreign concept to them that often goes against how they built their wealth in the first place.
It goes against what they consider as practical.
It takes faith to believe in the law of sowing and reaping. Rich people of the world are not people of faith so why do you expect them to embrace the Law of sowing and reaping in the house of God.
It is not something they have used and seen work before.
So giving out a lot of money is very unlikely with them. It is most probable they will give out what is little to them and unnoticeable to their wallets.
So when they give out that way they will also receive a harvest that is little and unnoticeable to their wallets.
For by the measure which with you sow, that would you also reap (Luke 6:38).
So if their harvest is unnoticeable how will they know that the principal works.
It is Christians who have used the principle and have seen it work that would sow huge seeds. It is Christians who used the principles to bring them out of poverty and into prosperity that are the ones who are going to bring out huge amounts of money to sow in the ministry because they know it works. It is the principal they have been using to go from one level of success to success. It is the ladder they used to climb out of poverty. So they will have no problem doing what they have always done that has always brought them rewards and taking them to greater financial heights when you ask them for donations.
Don’t go after Rich Celebrities in the world for donations for the work of the ministry. Look to the Christian brothers & sisters in the church. The more those in church give and God prospers them, the more they will be enabled to give more; and they will keep growing and growing until the overtake the world financially as God keeps blessing the works of their hands as part of the harvest for the seeds that they sow to move the gospel forward.
Another thing you must keep in mind is that; if it is the rich people of the world that is sponsoring the Gospel all the blessings that God has for those who sponsor the Gospel we go to the world.
One of the many things I made clear in my book “Money Grows On Trees” is the fact that God doesn’t look out for poor people around world to bless them financially. When you study the bible from the book of Genesis to the book of Revelation you would see that it is against God’s principles & nature for him to bless the poor financially.
God only blesses givers financially.
God will never give money to the poor. God will never give any financial blessing to the poor. He wants Christians and those who believe in him to give financial blessings to the poor, then he blesses the Christian financially for giving to the poor.
That is God’s way. That is God’s formula.
Note that if the giving to the poor is done by the world and not the church, then the blessing that God gives to Givers then goes to the world and not to the church; even more so when the giving relates to the spreading of the gospel which is higher than giving to the poor for the Lesser is included in the Greater.
When the gospel is sponsored by the world and not the church; that blessing that God only gives to Givers goes to the world.
You are creating a scenario where God blesses only the world financially because of his principles and doesn’t bless the church financially because they don’t give.
Make sure that the financial blessings of God go to the church by making sure that your ministry is sponsored by the church and if possible only the church.
Even if that means that if a Non-Christian wants to give to your work or your ministry you should ask him to give his life to Christ first and become a believer in Christ.
If he doesn’t become a believer in Christ or a member of your church or someone else’s church perhaps you shouldn’t let him give because if you do the blessing comes upon him who is outside the church and will use the money that he gets from the blessing God will give him (which will be more than what he gave your ministry) for purposes in the world which is contrary to what you are doing for God in your church or your ministry.
So your are actually creating more money for the building of Satan’s kingdom in your quest to raise money for the building of God’s kingdom cause you are going about things the wrong way.

Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land.  Then the word of the Lord came to him:  “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.”  So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?”  As she was going to get it, he called, “And bring me, please, a piece of bread.”  “As surely as the Lord your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die.”  Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son.  For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’ ”  She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family.  For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah.
