For the past several years, I have borne all of the costs associated with the publication and distribution of my books, website, Blog, and other ministry endeavors. At some point, you may wish to demonstrate that you are on God's team. If this Blog or our other communications have been of benefit to you, please consider making a monetary contribution in order to defray the cost of the Blog, as well as our other ministry efforts. All monetary contributions should be sent via any channel or acceptable method to RebekahIsaacInc@gmail.com. Google Wallet, Apple Pay, PayPal and other programs allow you to easily send and receive money to a designated email address. Please note that contributions made from within the United States are not tax deductible as a charitable contribution.
Everything we do, including our giving to ministry endeavors, should be done in consultation with the indwelling Holy Spirit of God. If you believe in giving 10% of your income back to God, ask the Holy Spirit of God whether and how that 10% should be divided. The kingdom of God is a singular entity made up of various components, and as a priest of God and disciple of Jesus, he may ask that you support different facets of the kingdom work, including assisting a neighbor or a single mother in your congregation with grocery costs. If you believe in giving generously without a specific percentage being allotted, the same principles apply. Don't assume that writing a check to one church or entity is sufficient to satisfy your obligation as a disciple of Jesus to seek first and to support the kingdom of God.
When the Lord God Almighty challenged the Israelites to give 10% of their income to the priests, he meant the Levitical priesthood. He did not mean anyone who calls themselves a priest, whether they are a priest of God or a priest of Satan. Anyone can use the name priest or pastor, however, you have an obligation to determine what if any benefit you gain from their ministry. If your understanding and ways of viewing the world have not been challenged in 5, 10, or 15 years, find and support someone who is revolutionizing your relationship with God and with his Word.
