Part 2 of The BIG Investments series, titled The Financial Investment. Pastor Rudy Bropleh uses scripture from Malachi 3:8-12 with emphasis on the fact that God wants to give guidance to us and there are 3 important points to gain: 1) We need to SOW ---bringing tithes and offerings to the storehouse (church). We should understand the 80:20 rule, keeping in mind that EVERYTHING belongs to God --1Chronicles 29 ----10% of gross goes to God; 10% is used to pay yourself; and 80% is used for daily living. When we follow the 80:20 rule...2) God will SUPPLY all of our needs; and 3) God will SUSTAIN us. Never turn your back on God because He keeps negative things away from us so that we can do well and live a good life!

He sustains us and is our authority and defeater of death. We speak of peace often this time of year and yet Jesus makes peace possible. Jesus is our hope.

Sheba, an Israelite, led a new revolt against the Davidic kingdom by leading the Israelites into a civil war. the narraitve has david, firing Joab and appointing Amasa to be Military general, until he is unable to round up the men. David then appoints Abishai to lead a group of men into battle - one of them being Joab. Joab take charge and kills Amasa when they meet and chases Sheba all the way north to Abel of Beth-maacah. One the wisdom of a women from Abel save this town by throwing Sheba's head over the wall. We can all learn from this narative that only God can hold a kingdom together and that those who oppose Israel's king (or Messiah) will lead miserable lives now and die horrable deaths.
