Feb '98 Part 7
GOD in flesh, Jesus, clearly affirms we labour or work with our hands in Mat17:27,
wherein He says "cast in a hook," an effort, sufficient to pay for our costs, dues.
GOD in Lk5:4-11 gives an example of our efforts without His grace + power, much
lost, but in Jn21:3-11 gives an example of our efforts with His grace and power,
zero loss.
GOD is clear, when we forsake our self will, as in Lk5:11 Acts15:8 1Pet3:21b-4:6; 5
till 2Pet1:3,4,12, we can then justly claim to copy Lk12:50; 22:42 1Jn2:6, living
GOD confirms this from Gen2 thru Deut11:26-28 Mat19:17 Phil2:12 Heb5:9 to Rev22:14,
as our self will is carnal, flesh, sin and must die, be killed Rom6; 8, forever.
GOD in Paul declared his death to self Rom6; 7:6,22,25-8:4,14-39 1Cor15:31
2Cor4:11-7:1 etc, yet insisted upon manual labour Acts18:3 1Cor4:12 2Thes3
to support his ministry, our example.
GOD is clear, anyone not following the Bible examples is a disgrace to Him,
His word, His work thru honest servants, and needs to repent of their laziness,
GOD's true servants copy Paul in all ways, Gal5:1-6:10, refusing worldly gain
for self-sake, but diligently working to support His family of believers'
genuine needs, not lusts.

Jer23..."Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!" says the LORD.
2 Therefore thus says the LORD GOD of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: "You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings," says the LORD.
3 "But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
4 "I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking," says the LORD.


Jn10:9.. "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
10 "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have more abundantly. (Ps66:8-12)
11 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
12 "But a hireling, not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
13 "The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep."


Phil2:2.. Fulfill my joy by being likeminded, having the same love, of one accord, of one mind.
3 nothing through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
20 For I have no one like-minded, who will sincerely care for your state.
21 For all seek their own, not the things which are of Christ Jesus.


Ps110:3.. Your people (are) volunteers in the day of Your power; in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth.

GOD's provision within 501c3 enables support businesses, NFP's, provided:
   a) the publicly supported organization controls the support business,
   b) the support business is operated solely for the benefit of the pub. sup. org.
GOD incorporated 7CCCInc. companies to fulfill His Jer23 promises, all explained
in His dictated letters from '87 till now, believed by very few hearing
and obeying Him.
GOD's company documents demand Bible teaching for all participants and tithing
to CCCInc. of all income, enabling His full blessing, Mal3 and spiritual growth.
GOD's true kingdom principles expect us to work for the gospel's sake, as Paul,
rather than lazy good-for-nothings, who live off the gospel, like much of
the current church.
GOD insists we be self-employed (501c3); giving, not stealing, and volunteering
time in His service thru church, arts, medical, rehab, school, etc., Acts2-7.
GOD's iron rule, Dan2, will ensure His 7 CCCInc. companies are managed by
selfless servants, as Paul, and control all associate, integral, support businesses.
GOD's 7CCCInc. companies serve Him first, teach life and truth, offer goods and
services in love and peace and never serve or support

Kettles go begging
GOD's kingdom principles call us to work, never beg, offering
products + services for a market price or just return.
GOD will continue to spank SA into obedience to Him.

     When the Salvation Army began its annual red-kettle collections this holiday season, officials never imagined that a healthy economy would hurt their cause.
     But like fast-food restaurants and retail shops, the 133-year-old charity is struggling to find workers willing to ring a bell and wish shoppers a Merry Christmas for barely more than minimum wage.
     Two days shy of Christmas Eve, the final day for kettle collections, the Salvation Army's Chicago-area donations are down $205,000, or 11 percent, from last year's efforts, which raised about $1.8 million. The $1.6 million collected so far will put the charity far from its 1998 goal of collecting $3 million in its kettles.
     "We had some problems finding kettle workers this year because the economy is good," said Robert Cotner, the Salvation Army's director of development for the Chicago area. "It's difficult to hire people and, as a result, the kettle collections are down substantially. We just don't have enough people to cover all the places we used to."
     Though many assume that all bell-ringers are volunteers or Salvation Army soldiers, about half the 5,000 kettle collectors who fan out annually in Chicago and the suburbs are paid $5.25 an hour, just above the $5.15 an hour minimum wage set by the federal government. The same is true in many other U.S. cities.
     While the Salvation Army traditionally has had little trouble recruiting seasonal employees to head up the kettle drive, this year's shortage of hired bell-ringers has forced officials to limit the number of collection sites. And that has cut into the group's donations.
     "I could have easily used another 100 workers for the kettle collection," Salvation Army spokesman Robert Bonesteel said. "The problem is that not everyone who might be interested is suited to work with the public."
     The shortage of kettle workers is plaguing Salvation Army holiday drives nationwide. Minneapolis, Omaha, Kansas City, Mo., and other cities have reported that their fundraising efforts have been similarly hampered.
     "Everyone is having trouble finding workers as a result of the good economy," Cotner said. "We're pleased

that people are working, because that's a major part of what the Salvation Army is all about. But it is kind of ironic. Now that we've got people working, we're having trouble filling our own roles."
     If  the  economy  remains  healthy  next  year, Chicago-area officials anticipate that they will be forced to rely on a much larger group of volunteers, such as members of churches and community group.
     Working a kettle requires few skills, but the Salvation Army demands that candidates reflect the organization's beliefs and philosophy. Officials find workers by placing notices in newspapers, through temporary employment agencies and by offering positions to clients who are seeking help from the charity.
     "The best kettle workers are outgoing and enjoy working with the public," Bonesteel said. "Otherwise, you might as well just stick a mannequin out there."
     The shortage of bell-ringers hasn't reduced the Salvation Army's presence at red-kettle strongholds, such as along North Michigan Avenue and State Street. (Many large suburban malls have for years prohibited the group from raising money with bell-ringers.) But the charity says it has been forced to abandon dozens of other less-busy sites in Chicago and the suburbs.
     "We put the stands out at the beginning of the season," Cotner said. "But because we don't have enough kettle workers to go around, a lot of them are still empty."
     At least 150 more kettle workers were needed this year, he said.
     Though the economy has been strong, Salvation Army officials say they haven't seen a dropoff in demand for their social-service programs.
     Money raised during the charity's holiday campaign helps support programs that provide food and clothing for families, toys for children and visits to shut-ins throughout the year.
     "Our programs are so complex," Cotner said. "Even when the economy is good, we always see people having trouble with drugs and alcohol, or families in need."

Feb '98 Part 9
GOD's kingdom principles have essentially not changed from Gen to Rev; His laws,
His rules, His ways ever require belief (or faith) and obedience, either to life
or to death Rom1-3.
GOD's kingdom principles are more clearly explained thru Christ and His Jn15:16;
so Rom14:17 1Cor2 after Acts14:22, as no sin ever abides in Him or in His kingdom
or in Heaven.
GOD wishes, but never forces, His family or 3part church would grow into Eph4:15,
but most copy Esau and Judas Jn6:66,71 Acts1:17 Rom9:13 Heb12:15-17 Rev3:9,
copying Mat8:29.
GOD's modern kingdom principles are clear in Paul; living as Him, in Him,
trusting 100% in His grace, love, power Rom6:3-8,22; 7:6,25-8:4,14-39
1Jn3:6,9; 5 refusing satan, self, sin.
GOD's kingdom principles in Paul were changed, ignored, rejected for 1900 years
by all Acts20:29,30 2Pet2 1Jn2:18,19 allowed by GOD to show His power and glory
with His parousia.
GOD's kingdom principles have been restored by Him in His 7CCCInc. companies;
clearly promised by Him to fulfill His will, all explained in CCCInc. letters
from '87 till now.
GOD's kingdom principles are 100% contrary to man's evil ways Jn8:44
1Jn3:8a; 2:15,16, so the current Judas church is Jn12:43 Jam4:4,
but a few copy Lk12:50; 22:42 now.
