  We believe that the Great Commission includes the type of going, as Jesus mentioned to the rich young ruler.

That means that Godly Apostolic Ministry is meant to extend into every realm of life including the business realm as Jesus Stated. "I must be about My Father's Business."

Jesus didn't come to earth to establish the Church of God but The Kingdom of God in every facet of our lives.

We believe that every business or household is the ideal place where disciples can and should be made. The workplace and home is where all our attitudes can be corrected to be faith based, our character moulded and the virtues of godliness build into our lives. Where we have to work together brings out the worst and the best in all of us and allows us to learn to encourage, teach and consol one another.


Below I have explained the story of the Rich Young Ruler from a different perspective.

Here is an explanation of the "GO" order in Matthew 19:21
Within the context of Matthew 20:1-16

   When reading the text in the next column remember that many things Jesus said, he later expounded on, so as to explain the context of what he said or to provide a deeper understanding to the true meaning of what he was trying to say.

 The first thing to note of interest is that what Jesus said was to go and sell what you have and give to the poor, but then we have the surprise in verse 29 where Jesus states that if you do that you will have one hundred times more and in Luke 18:30 it actually says you will have 100 times more here on earth. Which would be against the "Go, Sell and Give Away" doctrine understood in this verse.

   Jesus explains the context of the use of wealth to bless the needy in Matthew 20:1-16  Here Jesus starts with the word "FOR" or "THEREFORE" tying the context of the two chapters together, but also in verse 16 Jesus reaffirms this with Matthew 20:16 where he states "So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen." Jesus uses the word "SO" to reiterate or emphasis that this parable has the intention of helping explain what was said the last time He used this saying in Matthew 19:30. Which has everything to do with explaining the impossibility of a rich man or owner of vineyard going through the eye of a needle and has nothing to do with the workers in Matthew 20. In this case though he adds an extra explanation "many are called but few are chosen."

  We must understand that being called does not make us chosen. For example: I may be called to be a dentist, but that doesn't make me a dentist and it certainly doesn't encourage others to CHOOSE me as their dentist. What makes the difference isn't if I have all the tools, the office, the workers etc, but  that I prepare myself with education, disciplines, priorities, purpose, wisdom and understanding so that when someone in time chooses me because of all these attributes as their dentist,  I can use all the resources that God has given me to fulfill that calling. Many rich people do not prepare themselves to be fishers of men with what they have.

  So the context of Matthew 19:21 according to Matthew 20 is to use ones wealth to provide a need that the poor have. The need was not money, the need was work! This also takes into context what Paul the Apostle stated in 2 Thessalonians 3:10 "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." The steward in Matthew 20 did not focus on how much work the person did or how much time the person worked, but on the fact that the person was willing to work to have his need met. The steward then gave each one the same amount because each person was willing to work when provided the opportunity and had the same need for money (which comes as a result of the work) to supply food etc... for their families .

  If we study the word steward it doesn't have anything to do with giving away things, but everything to do with using or administering what God has given us to store up riches in heaven, and the only way to do that, is to work the wealth that God has given us for eternal kingdom purposes.

  That does not mean that we should give all our money away to all these mercy or compassionate ministries. Jesus didn't ask that, He didn't say, "Give it to me and I and my team will do that for you." No, Jesus left that responsibility with the one that was made a steward of that wealth by God. Now that steward may enter into partnership with another steward, but he never loses the responsibility towards God for what God has given him to administrate.

Now let us look at Matthew 19:21

One of the main problems here is to not misinterpret or do an automatic translation when we read this verse. One of the keys is the word "AND" where we need to understand that this word does not mean "THEN" or "AFTERWARDS" but means "at the same time" or "in addition to".

Therefore coming and following Jesus was meant to happen while the rich man was doing the "Going", the "Selling" and the "Giving"

"GOING" was to go and get on a continual basis while you have work for others to do as outlined in Matthew 20.

"SELLING". This word does not mean "getting rid of", but means to negotiate with or work the resource that you have as we find in Matthew 20.

"GIVING"  was meant to provide or give work opportunities to these people with needs for work.

"COME" means to leave behind your old self-centered way of doing things to now take on Jesus' purpose in what we do.

"FOLLOW ME"  means the same as when Jesus called his disciples. "and I will make you fishers of men."

  Why "fishers of men", because that is the only thing that can be born again and pass through the eye of a needle. The only thing that can pass through the eye of a needle into the eternal is the seed of faith that is in the embryo stage. That is why only all that we do by faith pleases God and brings a reward from God. As Paul states in Hebrews 11:6  "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

The greatest of these riches that we can store in heaven are souls that have been impacted by our lives and the use of the resources God has given us to steward over. A good steward does not look at the seed that is sown into the ground as a loss but as an investment into the harvest that is coming. So likewise, we as stewards of so many abilities, knowledge and riches must be willing to sow into the eternal so that we can reap an eternal harvest. What are some of the seeds of faith?, obedience, patience, mercy, compassion, forgiveness, loving your enemies etc...

  Remember that all these seeds are eternally useless without faith since then they would not please God, we can do all these things from a religious, obligation, cultural or works perspective and miss the reward because we aren't motivated by faith in God when we do them.


  In summary and to top it all off, Jesus mentioned in verse 29 & 30 of Luke 18, the reward here on earth of doing all this as mentioned above, is that one will receive a harvest of 100 times what he has sown by faith here on earth, and as well he will receive eternal life.

   Luke 18:29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake,
30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.

  You ask why or how "100 times"?  Because we as partners now in His Kingdom Business are able, with God's help to use the 7 resources that He has given us to their maximum potential.

  Matthew 19:16-30

16  And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
23  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

Matthew 20:

1  For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the good man of the house,
12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

May God help us be stewards of all that He has given us to impact this world with the Kingdom message of Jesus.

NOTE:  Remember the rich man that buried Jesus. He was called a DISCIPLE OF JESUS. Interesting hey!!!!!!!!!  Maybe just Maybe he was the RICH MAN that went away sad but then put into practice Jesus´ teaching and became a disciple of Jesus. Matthew 27:57


These ministries are stories that are happening in our lifetime of these principles as they unfold before us.

 The challenges, the tests of faith, the trials and the joy of seeing God bring in the harvest.

It's Incredibly Exciting!
