It is an insult to the cross to live in an Old Testament mindset. Jesus died so He could seat us in heavenly places with Him. The New Testament covenant is full of grace, love, and forgiveness. We were born for heaven, created for glory, it was never God's choice to create hell. The goal of the Last Days is to give grace to people who don't deserve it.
God said that His Spirit would be poured out on all flesh. What will it look like when this happens? We might be very surprised.
Revival and generosity are directly related. We reap what we sow. Sowing in a famine can be hard, but pays well in the end. Those who sow in tears will reap with joyful shouting. Those who are faithful in little, are faithful in much. Give, and it will be given unto you in increased measure.
There are hordes of believers that are convinced that the "old man" who has died in their house has come back to haunt them! Some folks spend their entire life kicking a dead corpse, wrestling a carcass and wasting their energy on an enemy that is already dead. Meanwhile, the real foe laughs sarcastically through the prison bars of their life. These Christians live on house arrest.
