Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

I was recently reading a book (which I do a lot) which was talking about how the church needed to start taking dominion. No arguments there. Then the book went on to talk about "workplace apostles" which lost me until I worked out that he basically just mean Christian leaders in a field who are dedicated to taking that field over for Christ. Not exactly sure that I would call them "workplace apostles" but whatever.

And then he started talking about how the reason the church hasn't taken dominion to this point is because we don't have enough money. Yeah, right. And God is soon going to give us money because we will have all of the workplace apostles in place and then we can take dominion. Sure.

Now, I believe that God will often (not always) bless those who are obedient to Him finacially. Historically we can see this. The Puritans for example had far more of the wealth of England than their population percentage (or even their social standing) would lead one to expect. The wealthiest countries today are predominiantly those that come from a Christian background.


The idea that we can't take dominion now because we don't have enough money (or anything else for that matter) is WRONG. We have everything that we need in order to do God's will where we are. (See 2 Peter 1:3)

What's more, most Christians are already far more wealthy than we think. The majority of the world live on $2 or less a day! Sure, there are a lot of Christians in that group, but there are a lot of Christians in the West who have plenty to spare.

We do NOT need more than what we have. He who is faithful with little will be faithful with much (Luke 16:10), and he to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). Let's do something with the much or little that God has given us, to take dominion NOW and not at some nebulous time in the future.
