I just want to decree this, I want to make it clear. As many of you know, I do want to speak publicly, in your church or congregation.
I have not done it in a while. I know, God has His reasons. But something dawned on me, just now, to speak this, to publicly proclaim it.
If I am ever called to give a testimony, or to speak publicly in a church. I will not try to sell my book there. Even today, I wrote just on impulse, Gods impulse, about how Christ turned the tables, on those who changed the temple, to sell what they had. I don’t want to be one of those Christians.
If God blesses my book, financially, in other ways, then so be it. But I will not try to peddle the word of God, or peddle my book, in His House. In His temple.
That may sound strange to some. But I don’t care. I really do only want to serve God. But if money came into the situation, somehow it would take away from the message.
I never want to compromise or let money, be the root of evil in serving God.
Does that make sense? I don’t know, but I am proclaiming it here.
To God be the glory….

AND THE JEWS PASSOVER WAS AT HAND, AND JESUS WENT UP TO JERUSALEM. AND FOUND IN THE TEMPLE THOSE THAT SOLD OXEN AND SHEEP AND DOVES, AND THE CHANGERS OF MONEY SITTING: AND WHEN HE HAD MADE A SCOURGE OF SMALL CORDS, HE DROVE THEM ALL OUT OF THE TEMPLE, AND THE SHEEP, AND THE OXEN; AND POURED OUT THE CHANGERS MONEY, AND OVERTHREW THE TABLES. AND SAID UNTO THEM THAT SOLD DOVES, TAKE THESE THINGS HENCE; MAKE NOT MY FATHERS HOUSE AN HOUSE OF MERCHANDISE. JOHN 2:13-16. KJV.
