Living off of a 'donation-less' ministry.


New Birth Ministries
 
A testimony of the provision of the Most High:
Many may not know this, if any, but, I have what I call "a sort of-donation-less ministry." I don't get much in the area of finance, maybe $100/year if that. I am not one of those preachers with the expensive car, attache case and tailor-made clothes. Strangely, that is what is exciting about New Birth Ministries. God provides. And yes, NBM/NBBI is registered legally with the State of Pennsylvania as a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization. I sometimes put out the call for an offering or a donation but not much as I don't like begging ministries. And NBM doesn't depend on tithing to 'make it'. We don't get tithes, never did. If handled wrongly they turn people away from Jesus. If people ever tithed, it was between them and our Father. Begging makes people feel that they have to 'pay' for their 'healing' or blessing.
As a "money-less" or should I say, "a nearly donation-less ministry" NBM has had a brick and mortar church which flooded in 2004...twice, Hurricane Ivan and the one that followed that January, therefore I took the ministry online with Various Prayer Groups, Various Prayer Lines/Calls, a You Tube Channel, and a current and successful Sunday - Church Online Radio Show.
Talking about Jehovah Jireh! God sees to it that I get whatever He wants me to have to keep this ministry going. He pays the internet, rent, paper, printer, ink, envelopes, stamps, phone lines, gas, electric, water, car, sewage and insurances+.
The secret to it all is to learn to live low and watch God work in your life. Fast much and live comfortably. I've been fasting this year from something that once had a stronghold on me for years, and the more I fast, the stronger God's power and discernment becomes in me and I absolutely love it.
Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. (Matthew 17:21)
Romans 12:2
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Trust in the Lord for everything. If your flesh cries, tell it to shut up and repeat, "With God ALL things are possible." Our flesh is a big crybaby anyway, when it gets what it wants it steals your joy. If God can trust you in the "little bit" He can surely trust you in "a lot." When it is time for you to sit at the "Table" Jesus will pull out the chair for you. One day, in His time, your little bit will become a lot. And yes, there will be those who will come to you trying to rush you into doing things that God has not called you to do. Don't be hard on yourself, don't be embarrassed of the 'work' of the Lord. Wait on the Lord. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. God will strengthen you. Jehovah Jireh, my Provider Your Grace is sufficient for me. God doesn't want man to boast over what they have done for me. God has smiled on me, still is, and that's my ministry testimony. God bless. ~ Rev Esther R. Scott

Sometimes you just have to sit back and watch.

Hello 2018. There seems to be so much going on lately including the weather. Hollywood is being watched and labeled as the next Sodom and Gomorrah, football players are paid a handsome amount to run up and down the field but yet they seem to also get into trouble and on the news. Black’s are killing whites and whites are killing blacks. Those that should be innocent are found guilty and those that are guilty are found innocent. Right is wrong and wrong is right. Church’s are closing down and Christians are losing heart. To me it seems as though Christians don’t know whether or not they really want to believe in Jesus Christ anymore. There is so much happening, whizzing by our heads every day that as humans, it seems that we are nearly drowning in a sea of confusion. What people tend to forget is the fact that God still sits high on his throne and sees everything and is ready at the drop of a dime to help us, all we have to do is ask. All we have to do is stay in contact with him and pray, read, study, ask, just like the word says liked the word says in Jeremiah 33 3. Children are disrespecting parents and parents are not raising their children properly and blaming it on the government and school systems. Parents are getting high with their children, parents are getting drunk with their children, parents are living lustful lives with their children and sometimes engaging with the children themselves. The devil is running rampid and he knows his time is short but do we know that time is short? Are we sure that we are saved? Or are we attempting to walk the walk and talk the talk not God’s way but in our own way? Preachers are dating the congregation male and female. That was not God’s intention. The spirits of intimidation, intrusion, embarrassment, lust, greed, envy, and hate, are taking over and yet Christians still seem to be weak in their power which I honestly do not understand. Either we believe that God lives in us or we don’t! You cannot walk the fence, we have to make up our minds. God lives in us. That is the word, that is his word. What is causing people to weaken is the fact that we are being led too much by television, social media, radio and gossip. we are being led by flesh instead of spirit and if you are living by the flesh your spirit will not reign. There are scriptures the tell us the Jesus and the disciples did Ministry so much that they were hungry and had to go into the towns to get food to eat. They had compassion on the people and ministered to the people and took care of the people even before they took care of themselves. But today we eat so much we can barely move. For years I’ve been a singer on stages all over Western Pennsylvania and before I sing I cannot eat. It’s always been that way. I have to depend on the God in Me to deliver people from depression and to give them Joy. The same goes for when I preach, I cannot eat before I get up on Sunday mornings on my Blog Talk Radio show called “Reverend Essie Scott”, to preach or any other day for that matter. We must push ourselves away from the chicken and potato salad, cornbread and greens and cause our flesh to wait until we wait upon the Lord and do his bidding. That is how we can please God and draw people to the Heavenly Kingdom. And amen.
