“And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul; neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.” – (Acts 4:32)

The only thing that Jesus had against the Thyatiran Church was that they gave Jezebel the permission to teach the congregation and she taught them to sin against God. Maybe we should put our attention on the people that were misled.
Remember the conditions that must be fulfilled if you were to trade in Thyatira in those days. The people easily fell to Jezebel’s lure because she offered them a way to trade and still looked like they had not fallen away from their faith.
Many people today are going into the world because they have not been able to find support for their businesses and careers in the Church/amongst Christians. It is important that we join hands to help one another achieve our goals. Set up committees to teach the people about their businesses.
Design programmes to teach people skills that can help them make money. Give people the opportunity to tell others within the Church the business that they do and most importantly, encourage everyone to buy whatever they need from a member of the Church. If we Christians patronize one another, there will be less pressure to compromise in order to earn our daily bread.
The Church is a place where we all should be brothers and sisters; no discrimination! Read the history of the Church in Acts 2:44-47, they shared all that they had and ensured that nobody was hungry. Do you share what you have with the poor in your Church so that they also have some or do you stay away from them because they don’t have?
When we talk about evangelising for those in the world to come to Christ, we must be aware that the devil is also evangelising for those who are in Christ to go into the world. Let us do what we can to reduce the pressure on them to go into the world. Yes, you pray with them to receive their breakthrough, but if you have the resources they need and you don’t offer them, you are not helping them or the body of Christ in general. James 2:15-16 says:
If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body, what doth it profit?
Look for someone in your local assembly who needs help financially and assist the fellow. Also, always ensure that you patronise members of the Church when you need a product they sell or a service they can provide.
