On this past Saturday Oct 29, 2005 approximately 5:00am, I was awakened by a woman of God out of deep sleep.
We started a conversation and during the conversation the Lord called us immediately to prayer.
She prayed and right then and there the Lord began to speak to us about what was on his mind and the real reason I believe that the phone conversation was going on at that hour.
Here is what he had to say and he was very, very displeased, he called me by name during this cnversation and said, "Audrey you have to go and deliver this message" Here it is...

‘MINISTERS – SINGERS, PREACHERS, PROPHETS, MUSICIANS, PROMOTERS, APOSTLES, EVANGLIST AND EVERYBODY…’

“TELL THEM, DO NOT CHARGE A FEE FOR MY WORD. ASK FOR AN OFFERING, ASK FOR AN OFFERING, ASK FOR AN OFFERING…Do not put a charge/fee at the door of my house…leave it open so the unsaved and those that have no money will NOT be turned away… Do you not believe that you could get more by just asking for an offering than you would get from charging? … If I have called you, will I not take care of you?… DO NOT CHARGE, ASK FOR AN OFFERING.

And while he was dealing with his servant, I heard my name as he said, “Audrey, You HAVE to deliver this message to them” I was shocked but felt really honored to say the least. As I thought about how I was supposed to deliver the word, He said, “Write it on the internet…Write it on the internet”

Then I said, I have posted in the past, he said, “Use scriptures”

What a mighty God we serve. Yes, I have never used the scriptures in my writings. I would quote the word of God but not provide the source/proof.

This is not one of my usual sermons, exhortations, personal revelations, convictions or another one of my just musing moments. The Lord has asked me to DELIVER this word to ALL. “DO NOT CHARGE FOR HIS WORD, JUST ASK FOR AN OFFERING” And he is NOT pleased at all.

***You do not want to get an unpleased God on your case. So before you turn up your noses, and throw this out the window and dismiss it as just another message, you’d better think again. I would suggest that you go in prayer and seek and ask him and have HIM confirm this WORD with you.***. A few weeks ago the Lord had asked me if I was willing to pay the price to GO.

He outlined what was involved in GOING…the rejection, the beating, the persecution, even the killing. I summed it all up and the only answer I had was”I HAVE NO CHOICE, I HAVE TO GO” I Did not know it would be this soon...I AM NOT AFRAID.

I consider myself to be nothing, I feel EVEN unworthy to deliver this WORD today. I, being the unlearned and unwise, but still I remember that God has chosen the base and unwise things to confound and bring to naught the things that are wise, as stated in

1 Corinthians 1: 25-29,.. See it for yourself.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

God promises to take care of you if you will have faith in him… See MATTHEW 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek :) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Matthew 7:11 - If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Phillipians 4: 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Philipians 4: 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me.

Phillipians 4; 17 not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

God is commanding that Ministers in all areas of this great gospel: STOP Charging a fee for ministering his word and trust him that he WILL make the way for you, and much more abundantly than you would have expected or asked for.

He cannot lie - neither will his WORD return to him VOID/empty

Numbers 23:19 - God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Isaiah 55:11 - So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

As stated in the book of Romans the Lord has freely given us all things (Romans 8:32 - He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?) And as he has freely given us ALL things, so we ought to do likewise in return as stated in the gospels of (Matthew 10:8 - Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give).

Isaiah 55: 1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price

I am therefore imploring us to stop and look into ourselves and see what God is asking of us here. This is not my command or my word. I too believe that all this fundraising, rally and penny concerts and charging a fee whether great or small in the house of God MUST cease.

We have made the Lord house a den of thieves. Doing things that we SHOULD NOT BE DOING

Matthew 21:13 - And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Mark 11:17 - And he taught, saying unto them, is it not written, my house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? But ye have made it a den of thieves.

Luke 19:46 - Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

I (AUDREY) believe that if we paid our tithes and offerings then there’d be enough to build God’s physical house because HE would have poured out blessings which we could not contain, Malachi 3:10 - Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

If I would buy one less pair of shoes per month and others would cut back on some unnecessary stuff, ( ISAIAH 55: 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness) and give the monies to the church then there would be enough to care of God’s business so He in turm can take care of us.

He said here in, Isaiah 59: 1 Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. 3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity;

He says now, Isaiah 1:16 - Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

Walking with God takes faith/courage. We have to trust and believe in him. He is still a miracle worker and longs to show off on us. But we hold his hands tied so he cannot release what he has got for us. The things that he longs to give us is withholding from us because of our foolishness.

In the book of Nehemiah we see that it was the people that were asked to give willing to build the temple/work of God.

Exodus 25…1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering. 3 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass, 4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, 5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood, 6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense, 7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate. 8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

In the book of Nehemiah we note that The Priests and Levites were allotted…GIVEN a certain portion from the offerings and tithes of the people to sustain them…Nehemiah 13: 5 And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests…it was their wages because they were not allowed to work. They were specifically called to do service for the Lord. This was a command to Israel to do towards the Priests and Levites.

The people however stopped neglected this command, Nehemiah 13: 10 And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them: for the Levites and the singers, that did the work, were fled every one to his field…the Levites went back to the field(secular job) because that which should have been meat for them was no longer there..

Nehemiah rebuked them and he was sore displeased, Nehemiah 13: 7 And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God. 8 And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff to Tobiah out of the chamber. and charged them to start bringing back the tithes and offerings so the Levites and Priests could continue the work of the Lord. 12 Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries. You can read Nehemiah 13 chapter:

Folks, there are blessings if we obey HIM and a curse if we disobey HIM. Yet He is still all Good and He is God… a long read but worth it.

Deuteronomy 6 chapter - 1 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it: 2 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged. 3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey. 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. 9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. 10 And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, 11 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; 12 Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 13 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. 14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; 15 (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth. 16 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah. 17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee. 18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers. 19 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath spoken. 20 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you? 21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand: 22 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes: 23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers. 24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. 25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he

hath commanded us.


I ASK OF YOU TODAY, PLEASE PRAY AND PASS THIS NOTE TO ALL YOUR GROUPS, FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES…FROM A SISTER… THANK YOU SO MUCH AND MAY GOD HELP US TO RECEIVE AND UNDERSTAND THIS AND ACT IN OBEDIENCE, AS THERE IS NO HOLINESS WITHOUT OBEDIENCE.


Isaiah 58: 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward. 9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: 11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.


Dear Lord, May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, My Lord, My strength, My redeemer, amen
