Clustering is one of the new programs that help us reach out to those we don’t agree with
faith In recent years, in many places, this has proved successful, brought blessings to many people, and increased the resources of the missionary classes.
When those who do not share the faith were told about the progress of the third angel’s message in the pagan countries, they were touched in their hearts, wanting to know more about how powerful the truth is to change hearts and lives. Men and women of all ranks were reached, and the name of God was glorified –MS, “Consecrated Efforts to Reach Unbelievers” (Efforts consecrated pour attreiner les noncroyants), 5 (June) juin 1914.
Some may question whether it is appropriate for us to accept the wealth (gifts) of unbelievers. They also ask that Who owns this world of ours? Whose are these houses and these fields, and this wealth of silver and gold?
God has so much in the world, and He has placed His wealth in the hands of all people, whether they are believers or unbelievers. He is ready to turn the hearts of the wicked, even the idolaters, to give of their possessions to support his work; and God will do it, when his people will have learned to approach those people in a wise way, so that they will let them take care of what they have to do and become lucky.
Those who think that the poor of the Lord’s work are shown as it should be to those who have wealth and talk about it, those people can have a good role in promoting the true work of this time. The people of God have lost many good positions that they would have benefited from if they had not decided to turn to the people. –Southern Watchman, March 15, 1904.
Even today, God is still turning the hearts of kings and leaders to protect His people.
Those who work for it should receive the help that God gives to those people to advance his work. People who are gifted with these gifts can pave the way for the light of truth to enter the darkened world.
Those people may not like God’s work at all, they don’t believe in Christ at all, they don’t know anything about God’s Word; but that would not be a reason why we should not accept their gifts. –Southern Watchman, March 15, 1904
God has placed His wealth in the hands of unbelievers as well as believers; all can take possession of it to complete the work of saving the lost world. As long as we are still here on earth, as long as God’s Spirit is working in the hearts of the children of men, we will have to receive gifts and spread them.
We must give the world the light of truth, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures; and what God has persuaded the people to give to support his work we must receive -Southern Watchman, March 15, 1904.
Even though today the whole world seems to be in the hands of the wicked, the whole world, and wealth
and its riches belong to the Lord. “The earth and all that is in it is the Lord’s” “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine. This is what the Lord of hosts says. » “For all the beasts of the forest are mine, and the wild cattle of a thousand mountains; I know all the birds and the wild things of the mountains, the beasts of the forest are mine.
If I were hungry, I would not tell you, because the world and its fullness are mine.” Oh! By adhering to the principles of truth, Christians would always think that it is their privilege and duty to take advantage of the opportunities God has given to advance His kingdom in this world. –Southern Watchman, March 14, 1904.
