THE STEWARD OF KINGDOM FINANCES
by Gary Carpenter
This section is primarily for those who are "called" to transfer wealth from the world system into the Kingdom Of God to fuel the combines of revival in the last days. There is an actual call to this ministry office that is seldom taught in the body of Christ today. Some references to this office from the scriptures are found in the "Simplicity of Giving" (Romans 12:8) and the parable of the "Ten Pounds" in Luke 19:11-27. This ministry office functions as a part of the "Helps" ministry as listed in 1 Cor 12:28. Paul tells us:
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Rom 10:15a And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
Not everybody is called to be in the five fold ministry. From the preceding verses we see there are those who are "sent to preach" and there are those who "do the sending." Of course, all believers are encourage to support the work of the gospel financially, but it will require massive amounts of money to finance the mighty revivals that will soon sweep the earth in these last days. God is releasing understanding from His Word to teach those who are specifically called to transfer wealth from the world system of Mammon into the Kingdom Of God to provide the necessary funds required to preach the gospel to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people.
The purpose of this section is to provide teaching for those who know they have the "call" to Steward Kingdom Finances in the last days. Even if you do not know for sure you have this specific call, the principles of stewardship apply to all believers. This section will be updated as often as needed, not just monthly. I encourage you to check here often to see the latest teachings. Most of the teachings are progressive, building on the revelations in the prior lessons.
For practical reasons, I have chosen to make these teachings very user friendly. In order to make them as "printer friendly" as possible, they will be simply done in black type on a white background. Feel free to print and share this material with whomever you want.
For those of you that know you are called to be a Steward Of Kingdom Finances, I suggest you "copy and paste" these lessons to the word processor on your computer and save them as files for future reference. Who knows when the Lord may send you to some location where there is no access to the Web? By having the files stored in your computer [perhaps in a directory named STEWARD], you will always have this information available to review.
There is a term I use often in the teachings that most people are not familiar with. It is the term, "Gospel Entrepreneur." This is a person with whom the Holy Spirit co-labors through the Gifts Of The Spirit to do business in the world system to transfer wealth from Mammon into the Kingdom Of God. To see an accurate picture of such a person from the Word, see Luke 19:11-27. Gospel Entrepreneurs take a measure of money, increase it by trading [Strong’s: "to earn in business."], and bring the total back to the Lord for His use in the Kingdom Of God. The Gospel Entrepreneur is only one type of a Steward Of Kingdom Finances. There are others, which will be described in the teachings.
I welcome your questions but I am sure you understand that it is not feasible for me to personally respond to hundreds of such questions a day. That would leave no time for continued meditation of the Word and prayer. I will make your questions a matter of prayer before the Lord and no doubt they will eventually be answered in the teachings as they are posted in this section of the Web Site. This is an unfolding revelation and I am still seeking the answers to many questions myself. Your questions are very important because the answer to your question may be the key to unlocking the answers to many others. Rest assured that I will not disregard any questions that are sent to me.
Thank you and God bless you for your faithful stewardship to the King of Kings!
