Caption: EAT YOUR CAKE AND HAVE IT BACK
“Give (your cake), and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38. What!!!
Today’s caption practically connotes impossibility which is peculiar to men and not God for with God nothing shall be impossible. One of the channels that has been inter-alia programmed by God to eat one’s cake and still have it fresher and multiplied than it was ab-initio is giving; either to God or man. It’s a profitable endeavor.
In Sept 2015, the L-IMPACTS caption was Gambling on God which is a risk venture. It reads “to risk something is to lose it for the benefit of gaining it back (the more) in the future. It is losing to save, giving to get more and dying to live.
Eccl 11:1 “Cast thy bread (cake) upon the waters: for thou shalt find it (more fresher & better) after many days. Finding or getting it back is dependent on casting it first. Gal 6:7 says that giving precedes receiving.
Mark 10:29-30 deals with it thus: “And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, there is no man that hath left house, or lands for my sake, and the gospel’s. But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, lands. The integrity of God’s Word stands sure.
Action cue: Giving is eating my cake and still have it back fresher an better. In sowing is reaping, in giving is getting, in a seed is a future. I’ll live to give. Help me oh Lord!
JESUS IS GOD!
