Joy Filled Financial Support

Kevin and Donna believe Jesus wants to employ them by deploying them to influence the influencers in families, businesses, churches, cities, and nations to strengthen the Body of Christ in every place they are sent.


Kevin and Donna believe their 'job' will be three-fold:


First, their primary responsibility will be to minister to the Lord so a lot of their “work” will be private, alone in His Presence in prayer, worship, and studying His Word.


Second, their ministry to the Lord will facilitate their ministry with the Lord as they take what they learn in His Presence and serve it to the people He sends them to, or He sends to them.


Third, they will be writing more books, workbooks, and other materials, some of which will be used as a Curriculum for The Revolution Movement.


People who commit to financially support RM can do so 2 ways: 


1] Give directly to Kevin and Donna and not receive a tax deduction for the mentoring, discipleship or fathering level of participation.


2] Give directly to RM for the mentoring, discipleship or fathering level, and receive a tax deduction.


RM will send a contribution to every contributor before January 31st of the following year of financial support to ONLY those who give $600 or more in the previous calendar year.


e.g. - Someone giving $600 or more in 2019 would receive a contribution letter before January 31, 2020. Someone who gives $599 or less would not receive a contribution letter from RM and is responsible to provide proof to the IRS that they gave financially to RM.


Kevin and Donna believe the Lord has said to them, “I am your Source and your Resources. Trust Me to provide abundantly for you.”


RM is not a church or school in our modern or classic understanding of those terms. RM will be funded by charitable contributions from those participating in the Movement, as well as from all those who believe God has called them to pray for and financially support the mission and vision that guides our purpose whether they receive personal ministry from us or not, as well as from ministry opportunities Kevin and Donna receive where they are enumerated for their ministry.


Therefore, those God calls to participate in the training, and those God calls to financially support will commit to commit directly to the Lord Jesus who calls them to support the work.


This means each financial supporter will be required to seek God for the amount and regularity He wants them to give to RM. This will free Kevin and Donna from the concern of who is giving and how much they are giving, and from having to solicit financial support. This way Kevin and Donna can invest their time in God’s Presence and with the people they are to train in this Movement.


All financial support will be between the giver and God. Each giver will answer to Him for their faithfulness to Him in their giving to RM.


The amount God challenges them to give and beyond that amount by faith!


1 Corinthians 9:9-11


“9 For it is written in the Law of Moses, ‘You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing.' God is not concerned about oxen, is He? 10 Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops. 11 If we sowed spiritual things in you, is it too much if we reap material things from you?”


The New Testament gives meaning and purpose to what was revealed in the Old Testament. Paul makes reference of a command in Deuteronomy 25 about taking care of the burden-bearing animal that is engaged in the preparation of food.


Galatians 6:6-10


“6 The one who is taught the word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him. 7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10 So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.”


Sharing all good things [that benefit the teacher of God’s word] is the launching pad for sowing and reaping. The person sowing determines how much he reaps and from where he reaps depending on how much he sows and from where he sows.


God is not mocked because He oversees the sowing and reaping just as He oversees the person who sows [teaches] God’s word.


Losing heart is in the context of being unfaithful to God and their commitment to do good in our sowing and reaping.


What they purpose in their heart to cheerfully give!


2 Corinthians 9:6-8


“6 Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful [hilariously joyful, prompt, and willing, propitious [heaven-sent, sacrificial, on time, to facilitate success]] giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.”


There is a connection to God making all His grace abound to those who sow bountifully [in a way that blesses the one receiving what is sown]. To cheerfully sow what blesses others releases God's grace so that the give is amply supplied.


The context is found in the Macedonians preperation and commitment to give what would publicly bless those receiving the gift.


Philippians 4:19


“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”


The context [verses 10-18] of this tremendous promise is the radically generous heartfelt commitment and fulfillment of Paul’s financial supporters giving to his divine purpose cheerfully [enthusiastically, not under compulsion [impulse giving, or giving because of feeling manipulated to give]].


VOWS:


LEV 22:21 - “`When a man offers a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD to fulfill a special vow or for a freewill offering, of the herd or of the flock, it must be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no defect in it.”


NUMB 30:2 - “If a man makes a vow to the LORD, or takes an oath to bind himself with a binding obligation, he shall not violate his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.”


DEUT 23:21-23 - “21 When you make a vow to the LORD your God, you shall not delay to pay it, for it would be sin in you, and the LORD your God will surely require it of you. 22 However, if you refrain from vowing, it would not be sin in you. 23 You shall be careful to perform what goes out from your lips, just as you have voluntarily vowed to the LORD your God, what you have promised.”


JOB 22:27 - “You will pray to Him, and He will hear you; And you will pay your vows.”


PSA 22:25 - “From You comes my praise in the great assembly; I shall pay my vows before those who fear Him.”


PSA 50:14 - “Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving And pay your vows to the Most High.”


PSA 61:8 - “So I will sing praise to Your name forever, That I may pay my vows day by day.”


PSA 66:13 - “I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings; I shall pay You my vows.”


PSA 76:11 - “Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them.”


PSA 116:14,18 - “14 I shall pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people. 18 I shall pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people.”


PRO 20:25 - “It is a trap for a man to say rashly, "It is holy!" And after the vows to make inquiry.”


ECC 5:4,5 - “4 When you make a vow to God, do not be late in paying it; for He takes no delight in fools. Pay what you vow! 5 It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.”


JON 2:9 - “But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving. That which I have vowed I will pay. Salvation is from the LORD”


NAH 1:5 - “Pay your vows.”


MT 5:33-37 - “33 Again, you have heard that the ancients were told, `YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FALSE VOWS, BUT SHALL FULFILL YOUR VOWS TO THE LORD.’ 34 But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great king. 36 Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let your statement be, 'Yes, yes' or 'No, no'; anything beyond these is of evil.”


In these verses Jesus is saying you should not have to add a vow to your promise. If you say, ‘Yes’ then do what the yes refers to. If you say, ’No” then do what the ‘No’ refers to.


In other words answer correctly and stick with it. If the correct answer is ‘Yes’ then say ‘Yes’ and abide there, and if the correct answer is ‘No’ then say ‘No’ and abide there. To contradict is to be compromised and compromise is from the evil one.


Jesus summed up what all of what the Old Testament verses on vows meant to reveal.


Jesus is the sumation of all things!


Ephesians 1 - "9 He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind   intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth."


Peace in!
