.. investment bankers for The Kingdom of Heaven..

.. it’s hard to get away from advertisements about saving money for retirement.   a good investment banker will help you make ‘purchases’ of ‘stock’ which will produce more money to be able to pay for the things you think you might need when you retire and stop working.  there are many huge investment corporations where CEO’s make annual compensations of upwards of $1,600,000 annually, who will help you invest whatever portion of your $51,000 a year compensation (average USA annual income) that you don’t need to use to survive; pay rent, utilities, food, entertainment, etc…

… if you are a ‘good’ person, you will probably go to a church, or at least watch one on tv, where many rich men in business suits, (gotta dress up nice to impress their god) will tell you that you have to “tithe” and give their god 10% of whatever gross amount of money you can manage to bring in.  ‘pastors’ like John Hagee with a $1.23 million compensation in 2001 and $5 million net worth, Joseph Prince with a $550,000 a year salary and $5 million net worth, Franklin Graham $622,000 a year salary and his $25 million net worth, Kenneth Copeland and his $25 million net worth, Creflo Dollar and his $27 million net worth, Benny Hinn and his $42 million net worth, Bishop TD Jakes and his $147 million net worth, and others; will tell you that you need to give in ‘good soil’ so that your money will grown.

Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.” (Proverbs 22:16, ESV)

… both of those groups, the rich investment bankers, and the rich ‘pastors, teachers, prophets, apostles, bishops’ and whatever else they want you to call them, all of those people “oppress the poor to increase their own wealth” and you shouldn’t “give to the rich” because it will “only come to poverty.

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:19–21, ESV)

… it is recorded that Jesus taught us to ‘lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven’, but how do you do that?

Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Luke 12:32–34, ESV)

.. in order to get ‘your treasures’ into eternity, you have to do some creative financing today.  get with your local “investment banker” for The Kingdom of Heaven, plant your seed and wait for the harvest.  the returns on those investments are eternal…

As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.” (Matthew 13:23, ESV)
