How To Get Rich In Real Estate!

.

.

.

.

There is a currently popular term which describes a currently popular money-making venture: “House Flipping”.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fixer_upper_in_Eureka.jpg

And the concept of this money-making venture is simple: buy a house and quickly turn it over for a profit!

.

And indeed, for those who have the energy and the savvy, this currently popular wave of “house-flipping” can be quite profitable!

STRICT HONESTY A MUST!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fixer_upper_in_Eureka.jpgNow for the Christian, there are some additional factors to consider: factors which the people of the world are perhaps, not so concerned about.

.

You see, the Christian understands, or at least should understand, that God requires strict honesty in all of life’s business dealings, both big and small!

.

Listen… “He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within My house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in My sight.” Psalm 101:7

.

Yes, this above verse reveals that those who deceive others will simply not be numbered among the redeemed who spend eternity in the New Heaven and New Earth…

.

.

.

.

NO LIARS IN HEAVEN!

.

Listen again… “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, AND ALL LIARS, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Revelation 21:8

.

So here we see that it is of utmost importance to be completely honest in all matters of life! Because, as it says in the above verse, “all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

.

.

.

A DISHONEST WORLD

.

Unfortunately, the people of this present antichrist world are not so careful about being honest. And so, when you buy something from a person, they may or they may not disclose the true reason why they are getting rid of whatever they are attempting to sell. Of course, non-disclosure of problems is just as dishonest as out-and-out lying!

.

.

.

.

.

“THE CURSE CAUSELESS SHALL NOT COME!”

Proverbs 26:2

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fixer_upper_in_Eureka.jpg

This above proverb presents a giant principle, which is the reason for so much of the troubles which befall the sons of men in this fallen world!

.

Listen… “The curse causeless shall not come!”Proverbs 26:2

.

You see, when we engage in any sin, there is a recompense we must suffer for that sin. Whether that repayment comes as a natural cause-and-effect, or it comes as a special punishment from the Divine Judge, it nevertheless will come! Curses do not just come for no reason! No, curses come as a result of a persons bad behavior!

.

And so, if a person, whether bond or free (Christian or non-Christian) engages in dishonesty, then he or she will receive the same recompense. Yes, a curse will follow them.

.

TRUE STORY

.

A certain young man named Dave accidentally side-swiped another car, and quickly left the scene, without notifying the owner of that damaged car.

.

Well, to make a long story short, some time later, Dave became a Christian. And a few years into his Christianity, he was hit by another car, totally ruining his own car. Well, most people would say, “What’s so special about that?”.

.

 

However, when Dave arrived home from the accident, he was surprised to discover that someone had dropped a large object on his expensive 1 year old sports car! So on that very same day, he lost one car in an accident, and had body damage to his other car! Coincidence? Or divine judgment? Well, Dave was totally convicted in his heart that it was a recompense for his hit-and-run accident years earlier. But of course, you are free to make up your own mind.

WE ARE TRIED EVERY MOMENT!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fixer_upper_in_Eureka.jpg

The point is, there is nothing done under the Sun that escapes the notice of the Judge! God sees everything!

.

Listen… “What is man…that Thou (God) should visit him every morning, and try him every moment?” Job 7:17, 18

.

As this above verse reveals, God is trying us every moment! Nothing we think, say or do escapes the notice of the Divine Judge of Heaven and Earth…

.

.

.

.

.

KEEPING COMMANDMENTS IS EVERYTHING!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fixer_upper_in_Eureka.jpg

Listen again… “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter (of life): Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14

.

Here is a great big huge concept! Not only does this passage reveal that every work, and every secret thing will be judged. But it also reveals that the whole duty of life is to keep God’s Commandments! Nothing else matters!

.

And this principle carries over into real estate sales. Or automobile sales. Or any sale of anything, big or little! Yes, it is not so important whether or not we sell that item. The only thing that matters, is that we handle that sale in a God-glorifying manner!

.

DAVE SELLS HIS HOME

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fixer_upper_in_Eureka.jpg

Well, here’s another true story about that same guy, Dave. You see, Dave lived in a bad neighborhood, and he desperately wanted to get out, for his kids sake!

.

But he had a choice to make. Should he disclose to the prospective buyer that there was trouble in his neighborhood? Or should he keep silent?

.

Well, after a number of experiences, Dave had finally learned his lesson about honesty, and told the perspective buyer all about the neighborhood and also about the major problems with the house. And guess what! The buyer didn’t even flinch! He paid cash for that house. And that was that!

.

But guess what else! Dave moved into a house across town and never even had one problem with his new neighborhood! He did it God’s way, and the Lord blessed him!

.

.

LET US TURN AGAIN TO THE LORD

.

The Good News to all this is that God is a very forgiving God. And if we will only begin to trust Him to lead us and guide us and help us in every situation of life, we will be overjoyed to learn that we don’t have to worry so much about selling our house or car, etc., that we must withhold negative information about whatever we are trying to sell! We simply apply God’s commandment about honesty in each and every situation, and trust that He will bless us in one way or another.

MAKING A WISE REAL ESTATE TRADE

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fixer_upper_in_Eureka.jpg

And though we may never be rich in the eyes of mankind, yet in Heaven’s estimation, we will be Billionaires!

.

And the Bible says… “He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.” Revelation 21:7

.

Now to inherit all things seems to indicate that the redeemed will inherit this entire universe! So that means we’ll be the richest people of all! (spiritual riches)

.

And so, you could possibly say that by our honesty down here on Planet Earth, we will become very rich in our real estate sales, as we sell this world and buy that world to come!

LOCATING THE ARCHER

.

“He hath bent His bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. He hath caused the arrows of His quiver to enter into my reins. I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day.” Lamentations 3:12-14

.

Orion travels through the night skies, starting about late September in the pre-dawn hours. This 1st office which Orion holds, as an Archer, is fairly easy to see. His bow is pointed and bent as if ready to shoot his arrows. But why astronomers have never noticed this Dragon to his left, is truly a puzzle! It’s so obvious; at least his crocodile mouth is obvious. (Perhaps God is sending the message that Satan (the real Dragon) is so obviously real, and yet so few in this world are ready to recognize him.)

.

This Archer-Orion corresponds to the 1st Horseman of Revelation, Chapter 6, speaking of a rider with a bow who goes out conquering. 

.

And so this article is dedicated to show just what Orion the Archer is speaking of, in Scripture, and how this all relates to you and me. So read on and observe…
