    Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.


    2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.


    3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.


    4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,


    5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.


    6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.


    7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.


    8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.


    9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.


    10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

    Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.


    2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.


    3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:


    4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.


    5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.


    6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.


    7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.


    8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.


    9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

    1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;


    2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)


    3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.


    4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.


    5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.


    6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:


    7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.


    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.


    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    Isaiah 4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.


    2 In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.


    3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:


    4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.


    5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.


    6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

    Exodus 15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.


    2 The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.


    3 The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.


    4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.


    5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.


    6 Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.


    7 And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.


    8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.


    9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.


    10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

    1 John 2:1  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:


    2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.


    3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.


    4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.


    5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.


    6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

    7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.


    8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.


    9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.


    10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

    Lagrant Anthony Visits - The Profitable Ministry

    in Religion

    I was asking the Lord whether there were others on the earth who understood the need for churches to be made free from the bondage of the 'Non-Profitable', mindset.  A mindset that has no intentions of attending to the needs of it's members.  As I was mentioning the business structure of Profitable Ministry God had retired criminal defense lawyer of 22 years Lagrant Anthony phone into the broadcast.  Lagrant has authored 14 books which are available on amazon.com.  Amazingly, one of his books deals with the very subject that I was questioning God about.


    The title of Lagrant's book that deals with financial structures within today's church system is Money, Religion & American Preachers: What your preacher does not want you to Know! 


    Lagrant Anthony graduated from Iowa State University in 1977 where he received an undergraduate degree in Developmental Psychology and a Masters Degree in Higher Education. He graduated from law school in 1987 and has practiced as a trial attorney for more than 20 years. Born and raised in Tampa Florida, he received a football scholarship to Iowa State Unversity.


    This segment is going to quite an eye opener for those who are daring enough to wake up.

    ROI (Return on Investment). Determine to be PROFITABLE!

    in Finance

    Hebrew 6:7-8 "For the land that soaks up frequent rains and then brings forth a crop useful to its owners receives a blessing from God; but if it keeps producing thorns and thistles, it fails the test and is close to being cursed; in the end, it will be burned." (CJB)


    In business, we invest with an expectation of a return of profit on our investment. There comes a time after the investment soaks up more and more of our hard earned money, that we evaluate that investment. In some cases, we determine the investment a bust, and salvage what we can. In other cases, the investment pays off with a fantastic harvest of profit.


    The Bible constantly refers to a notion that our work is to return a profit. The story of the talent in Matthew 25, as well as the Proverbs 31 woman is applauded because she sees to it that her work is profitable (Proverbs 31:18).


    Even the government will deem your activity a 'hobby', if year after year, you fail to report a profit.


    Let's look at effort,  expenses. and evaluating our status.  Let us Determine to be PROFITABLE!

    2 Timothy 2:


    7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.


    8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:


    9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.


    10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.


    11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:


    12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:


    13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.


    14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.


    15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Isaiah 33:10 Now will I rise, saith the Lord; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.


    11 Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.


    12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.


    13 Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge my might.


    14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?


    15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;


    16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.


    17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.
