All Rights Reserved...Copy Righted Word of God
Have you ever seen copy righted Word of God???
Yes, now, they are available for sale. Every word has a monetary value. You can have them in DVD's and Audio CD's. You can buy them and watch and listen to the Word of God preaching by Miracle Working Ministers of God.
But REMEMBER, you are not allowed to duplicate them. In other words, you are not allowed to make copies and share the messages in them, with others. Why??? because they are copy righted and all rights reserved. If you want to share them, you must go for the originals and share the originals with others.
Further, you can buy these messages in multimedia in bulk. If you can afford to buy them in bulk, you can even become an agent for your country or area where you nominate. When you buy them in bulk, you are offered very attractive discounts.
There are very powerful teachings on these DVD's and and Audio CD's. However, they are only for those who can afford to bear the price. I have come across some elements, who have bought these teachings by paying the value in money. They do make duplicates and sell them at extra ordinary prices. These people commit two illegal acts. They make illegal copies. On the other hand, they make an extra buck out of the deal.
In the midst of these elements, there are some culprits, who take copies of the originals for FREE, from someone who has already paid the price. Then, they make duplicates of what they have copied for free and sell at very unreasonable prices. I think, if Jesus were on earth today, surely He would say in our hearing, 'WOE TO THEM!'.
Let me tell you something. Selling the Word of God is a crime. Yes, it is something abominable to the Lord. Why???
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
According to the Word of God, a servant of God (who preaches the Gospel) has the permission to receive his wages from those who receive the spiritual nourishment from that servant of God, as the labourer is worthy of his hire.
... for the labourer is worthy of his hire.
This hire could come to a servant of God in two forms namely Tithes and Freewill Offerings.
However, no servant of God can sell the Word of God to people in any manner. For example, a servant of God cannot record his messages/ revelations that he or she has received from the Lord freely, into electronic media, and then sell to the church or outside people in the world with a profit.
Well, if it is a distribution among a great multitude, the cost can be recovered. However, making a profit by selling the Word of God is not biblical at all according to what Jesus has said in Matthew 10:8.
Today, many famous servants of God are in the business of selling the Word of God (in various manners) with a profit. In order to justify their action, they say such profits are again used for the ministry. However, such profits cannot be taken to the ministry as such gains are not biblical.
Again, I am telling you that selling the Word of God is abominable in the sight of God. God never fixed a price for the salvation He has brought us through His beloved son, Jesus Christ. If God did so, no one would enter the Kingdom of God today.
On Internet there are many servants of God, who are selling the Word of God with profits. Some even offer discounts for mass purchases as I have mentioned above.
Please read the below scriptures very, very, carefully.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
The Lord rewards us with spiritual gifts when we prove ourselves right before God as ministers, for a considerable period of time. However, after we receive these gifts, it is our responsibility to use these gifts carefully in accordance with the Word of God. According to the above scriptures, there are people, who lose their salvation even after receiving spiritual gifts.
What many have not understood is that the Lord does not take back what the Lord has already given. When the miracles continue to happen, they think whatever dirty work they do later on are not counted by God. Truly, Jesus is talking to such people in the above scriptures (Matthew 7:21-23). Amen!
