You Give Them

God is abundant(Ps 86:15). 
There is nothing that He lacks and 
He gives infinitely. 

Faith is receiving His abundance and 
The life of this faith is giving away what one has. 

It is important to have the right first-impression of God since 
Men, while they like to receive, 
Do not like to lose what they have. 

When God made all things, 
He filled the spiritual heaven with angels and 
The material heaven with every species of living things(Ge 1:1) 
To reveal His abundance. 

Though Adam was made 
A living being to be filled with the life of God(Ge 2:7), 
He was deceived by the devil and ate the forbidden fruit, 
Because of which he lost the right to eat freely and 
He was banished from the Garden(Ge 3:24). 
Subsequently, all men’s life became meaningless regardless of their toil(Ge 3:17-19). 

Inside the sanctuary was the ark of covenant that had 
The golden vase containing manna(He 9:4). 
It reminded the Israelites that, 
For 40 years God fed their fathers in the desert(Ex 16:35; Ps 78:24). 

There were also the stone tablets which reminded them that, 
To receive blessing and life from God They had to live by the commandment(Dt 30:19). 
While this was a source of a pride for them, 
It also brought on fear for punishment(Ex 19:5-6). 

Nevertheless, God revealed His plans through the prophets: 
1. To not harm but prosper them, and give them hope and a future(Jer 29:11); and 
2. For that, God was going to give His Son(Is 9:6). 
Jesus said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again”(Jn 2:19-21), because 
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body, 
He would give life to the full to men(Jn 10:10) for 
He is the Only Begotten Son whom God gave up for men 
To reveal His rich mercy for them(Jn 3:16; Eph 2:4). 

Hence, by one word He 
Filled the empty boat with fish(Lk 5:4-6) and 
Fed 5, 000 with five loaves of bread and two fish in the empty field(Mt 14:19-22). 
It was for them to believe that: 
1. God gave all things to the Son(Jn 3:35); and that 
2. God gives life abundantly through the Son(Jn 10:10). 
As He died, Jesus said, “It is finished”(Jn 19:30), declaring that He: 
1. down His life and emptied Himself before the Father’s will(Jn 10:17-18); 
2. Condemned the thief(Ge 3:4); and 
3. With His blood redeemed all men and gave life to the full(Mt 20:28; Jn 10:10). 
The Father raised Him up and Jesus ascended to the heavenly throne. 
He is God whose life has no end(Jn 20:28; He 7:3; Rev 1:18). 

The Holy Spirit comes with the name Yeshua, 
The keys of the kingdom of heaven(Mt 16:19) and 
In His name He gives 
1. (Jn 20:31); 
2. right to become children of God(Jn 1:12); 
3. every good and perfect gift(Jas 1:17); and 
4. Wisdom, joy, peace, power etc(Jas 1:5; Jn 16:24, Jn 20:21; Ac 1:8). 
And He lets them experiences His abundance daily. 
The man of the Spirit knows that 
In the name Yeshua he has received every good and perfect thing, and 
Therefore, he goes out and gives away the name Yeshua(Ac 3:6). 

O Lord, 
Though we have no wealth, honor or knowledge to give away, 
We have the name that fills all things, the name Yeshua, to give away. 
We are grateful! We are proud! We are bold! Amen.
