(Mt6:19-21; Mk10:29-30)

God is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
By HIs word He created all things and
With wisdom and knowledge He manages all things (Col2:3).

Faith is longing to become a CEO and
The life of this faith is in order to become the most successful CEO investing one’s treasure in
Yeshua and the kingdom of heaven (Mt6:19; Mk10:29-30).

While the best CEO who runs a nation or a corporation
With a managerial philosophy, ideology and leadership is an object of everyone’ envy,
If it does not benefit in the life after death it would all be in vain.

For God never manages anything in vain
Creating Adam who sinned and became the devil’s slave (Ge3:4-6; 2Pe2:19) was
All preliminary work to God’s victory (Ge3:15).

The Bible contains the success story of those who managed according to God’s instructions.
Abram left his father’s land and home (Ge12:1-4) and
Gave as a burnt offering his only son whom he had at the age of 100 and
Received countless descendants (Ge22:16-18).
Isaac who gave his life up on the altar of burnt offering sowed in the land and
Reaped a hundred fold in the same year (Ge26:12).
Jacob who crossed the Jordan only with a staff
By the time he crossed it again 20 years later his household and livestock became two camps,
Additionally changing the heart of his brother who had come to avenge (Ge32:6-10).
He even received the name Israel determined to receive God’s help (Ge32:28).

Furthermore, Joseph who had been sold as a slave
Started out as a manager in a household (Ge39:4-5) and
Eventually became the second in command in Egypt after growing wealth for Egypt (Ge41:15-57).
After their slavery of 400 years in Egypt
The Israelites left with the treasures of Egypt (Ex12:36),
The original tribal people of 70 increased to a people of two million.

The Temple where the name Jehovah was and the Law (Dt32:46-47)
Reminded them of how God let them pass through the wilderness in 40 years and that
He gave them the ability to produce wealth (Dt8:12-18).
In spite of this, however, after settling in Canaan
They managed in vain, even robbing God (Mal1:6-8, 3:6-9) for which
They continued to face wars and curse (Ps4:2, 127:1).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would not in the name Jehovah but in the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn5:43)
Give not a long life in Canaan but eternal life in the kingdom of heaven for
He came to seek not the children of Abraham but all souls and
Pay the highest price to purchase them (Mt13:44-46).

Accordingly He showed the success of His management through
The signs of multiplying five loaves of bread and two fish and feeding thousands (Mt14:15-21) and
Filling up an empty boat (Lk5:1-11).
He guaranteed a hundred fold in this life and eternal life in the life after
To those who lay down their most precious treasure for Him and the gospel (Mk10:29-30).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Invested His life and received the guarantee of resurrection and eternal life (Jn10:17-18);
2) Judged the devil who managed in vain (1Jn3:8); and
3) With His precious blood purchased all men in Adam (1Pe1:19; Rev5:9).

He resurrected and ascended to heaven and sat on the throne as the Lamb of God where
He receives power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and praise forever and ever (Rev5:12).

The Holy Spirit comes to
The precious souls purchased by the blood of Yeshua (Ac20:28) and
Helps them to become successful CEOs.

The Christian is he who
Discovered all the hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge in Christ (Mt12:44; Col2:3), and
Therefore, he sells all his possessions and trades them with Yeshua (Mk10:29-30).
Having made Yeshua his greatest treasure
He longs for the day when his heart will be where his treasure is (Mt6:21; Lk12:32-24).

O Lord,
You let this foolish man become the most successful CEO!
Even if you do not give me anything in this life
If I could be guaranteed eternal life I would not be in want! Amen.
