Torah Portion PINCHAS – Bamidbar (Numbers) 25:10-30:1(29:40)

Adonai search the heart, I try the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds. Jeremiah 17:10 TLV

Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!

Many years ago, in 1987 a powerful Servant of Yah from Oklahoma by the name of Oral Roberts posed a shaking challenge on TV and on paper to his viewers and readers.

“Either I raise 8 Million USD today or God will take me home”.

Many saw this appeal as manipulative, although out of the 100’s of thousands of letters of response that he received, only 6 were negative. His program was then able to cover all of the USA and many other nations. The following is a direct quote from Christianity Today about this episode,

Fund Raising: Did Oral Roberts Go Too Far?

The television evangelist links receiving $8 million to the extension of his earthly life.

RANDY FRAME| DECEMBER 15, 2009

This article was originally published in the February 20, 1987, issue of Christianity Today.

Thoughts about heaven are not new to Oral Roberts. In 1975, the Tulsa evangelist told a chapel audience at Oral Roberts University (ORU) that he had asked God to take him, but God did not answer.

This time, according to Roberts, God is taking the initiative. Roberts has stated in a fund-raising appeal letter and on television that unless he raises a total of $8 million above regular ministry expenses by next month, he will die.

“I desperately need you to come into agreement with me concerning my life being extended beyond March,” states a fund-raising letter signed by Roberts.

“…God said, ‘I want you to use the ORU medical school to put My medical presence in the earth. I want you to get this going in one year or I will call you home!’” Roberts says he received this message last March.

The evangelist likens his situation to the apostle Paul who, in the New Testament Book of Philippians, spoke of his desire to “depart and be with Christ,” but also of his responsibility to “abide with you in the flesh.” According to Roberts’s letter, “when it looked like Paul would go on to heaven, his partners flooded him with the necessary money, each one giving to God’s servant out of their own need.”

A follow-up letter signed by Roberts’s son, Richard, affirms that without the money needed to send out missionary healing teams, “God will not extend Dad’s life.” Oral and Richard Roberts made similar statements on their weekly television program. A public outcry led several television stations to drop programs containing the controversial appeal.

Is it money manipulation or is it God?

The heart is deceitful above all things, and incurable—who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9

This is the question that many asked themselves then and you probably ask yourself today when fundraising appeals happen to come to your attention. How can we relate in the right way to fundraising appeals, especially when they are so poignant like the one from Oral Roberts in 1987?

When you get a financial appeal from someone, I believe you need to ask yourself a few questions:

  1. Do I respect this person’s Ministry?
  2. Am I spiritually fed by this person’s Ministry?
  3. Do I believe in the Vision and the Mission of this Ministry?

If your answer is a resolute YES to all three questions, then the next question should be addressed to the Holy Spirit of Yah (God):

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT ME TO GIVE TO THIS PERSON’S MINISTRY?

The question is not IF you should GIVE, is HOW MUCH and HOW OFTEN you should GIVE.

Is your HEART in the right place?

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21

Many people are deceived to think that ministries “pay for themselves” and that they have a responsibility to keep on feeding the Sheep of God even if the Sheep do not reciprocate with WOOL. That is a misconception, a deception that comes out of Replacement Theology as much as exchanging the Shabbat for Sunday and Passover for Easter. It is a LIE. And this lie has caused untold GRIEF to very anointed and faithful ministers, to their families and especially to The Holy Spirit. The stinginess of the People concerning those who feed them not only hurts the Father, it actually OFFENDS Him.

Now let the one who is taught the word share all good things with his teacher. Do not be deceived—God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he also shall reap. For the one who sows in the flesh will reap corruption from the flesh. But the one who sows in the Ruach will reap from the Ruach eternal life. Galatians 6:6-8 TLV

Elohim has been mocked countless times by those who call Him Abba but do not GIVE to those that He appointed to teach, minister and lead the flock.

Could it be that Yah (God) really spoke to Oral Roberts that unless he raised 8 million USD, Oral would die early?

The righteous one perishes, but no one takes it to heart. Godly men are taken away,
 but no one discerns that the righteous man is taken from evil. Isaiah 57:1

My answer is a resolute YES! It can be that Yah will take Choice Servants home early because of the APATHY, SELFISHNESS and STINGINESS of the Flock. In other words, The Almighty would be withdrawing His Gift from the Body because the Body does not appreciate His Gift. Oral Roberts and many of us in the Five-Fold Ministry are GIFTS to YOU, the Body of Messiah’s Members. If the GIFTS are not appreciated, honored and supported, the Message to YHVH is:

WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR GIFTS

The Apostle Paul said that not GIVING and being GENEROUS financially toward those who teach you and watch over your soul is MOCKERY to the Almighty.

Do not be deceived—God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he also shall reap. Galatians 6:7

Oral Roberts, for example, was a very obedient Servant of Yah and very sacrificial. I was told that he had PERSONALLY prayed for so many people for Divine Healing that he wore his shoulder out for life because of so much exertion. His life was poured out on the Altar of Service to bring Truth and Divine Healing to the Church. He had over extended himself physically and financially to obey Abba’s Call and to bless as many people as possible. The Vision that Abba gave him to start a Medical Mission was not for his own benefit, but for the benefit of countless thousands that would need the treatment. His plea was not to build himself an 8 Million Dollar Mansion but to help more people.

Heart Check

YHVH was TESTING THE HEARTS of all of Orals Viewers who profited from his ministry and from his teaching.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and incurable—who can know it? Adonai search the heart, I try the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds. Jeremiah 17:9,10

Would they respond with HONOR and with GENEROSITY or would He have to remove His GIFT, Evangelist Oral Roberts, from the earth early? We would have all missed a blessing had this happened! But praise be to God that people answered with generosity!

Obviously, his Medical Mission would have not been funded unless Oral would have been obedient to do such a radical fundraising, releasing a Word from Yah that some considered as “emotional manipulation”.

That is why when poignant financial appeals come your way you need to ask yourself the three questions I mentioned above,

  1. Do I respect this person’s Ministry?
  2. Am I spiritually fed by this person’s Ministry?
  3. Do I believe in the Vision and the Mission of this Ministry?

Many of us true Servants of Yeshua may be in the same place as Oral Roberts was at that time. We over extend ourselves physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially so we can help, bless, teach, and heal one more person, and sometimes, one more nation.

Oral Roberts, on that historical TV program, brought a Word directly from the Heart of the Father to his regular viewers and readers. The Word was so confronting that many thought it was not from God, but rather, from Oral himself. But for sure the appeal that he released then was rooted in Yah’s Word and Will. The RESPONSE of many to the financial appeal he released, ensured the continuity of his Ministry that has born much fruit until today. Oral Roberts Medical Missions, Hospital and University are equipping and healing countless thousands of people.

Your response TODAY to GIVE consistently, faithfully, monthly will also ensure the continuity of Kad-Esh MAP Ministries and the United Nations for Israel that is fighting for the health and healing of the Bride of Messiah, of Israel, and your nations,

Heart Check

The Bible says that wherever your Treasure is, your Heart will be also. This is a HEART CHECK for all our readers, TV, YouTube and Facebook VIEWERS,

  1. Do you respect our Ministry?
  2. Are you spiritually fed by our writings and TV programs, audios and videos?
  3. Do you believe in the Vision and Mission of this Ministry?

If your answer is a resolute YES to all three questions, then the next question should be addressed to the Holy Spirit of Yah (God):

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT ME TO GIVE TO Kad-Esh MAP MINISTRIES? The Full Scope of this Ministry depends on YOUR response for its continuity. Do those that PROFIT from the Gifts that Abba sent also respond with Honor, Thanksgiving and Generosity or do they take us, His Gifts, lightly.

The question is not IF you should GIVE, it is HOW MUCH and HOW OFTEN you should GIVE.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21

May you, our reader, viewer and disciple stand firm, tall and blessed because of your noble and generous spirit as you unite your heart and your treasure to answer Yah’s Call to give to this Ministry that has been blessing YOU.

The following testimony is from a very beloved Team Member whose heart and treasure are with Yah and with us as she is a very faithful and sacrificial giver. It came on my WhatsApp as I was writing this letter,

He (Yah) normally responds FAST to the deepest cries from my heart! Now I understand why! When I SOW into what is close to His Heart, He lets me reap what is close to my heart. Praise Yah!

The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.

Proverbs 11:25 NASB
