TOPIC: THE TWO CAR WASHERMEN -THE RICHES OF SINNERS! Written by Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe
BASIC SCRIPTURES: ISAIAH 45:3;
3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
2 KINGS 7:1-10
1 Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.
2 Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the Lord would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.
3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?
4 If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
5 And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
6 For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.
7 Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.
8 And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also, and went and hid it.
9 Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household.
10 So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they were.
Two men washed cars at an estate and one of them was fond of eulogizing and singing the praises of the rich men that brought their cars to the car wash, especially the praise of a rich miner who happened to be the richest man around. The other always sang the praises of God. By eulogizing and singing the praises of men, the car wash attendant got a lot of tips. But one day, while eulogizing the rich miner, the miner got so head swollen that he dipped his hand into his bag and gave the cash attendant an ugly-looking object, covered in mud. Not knowing what it was, the car attendant showed it to his colleague that sang the praises of God and asked,”What is it?” “I don’t know” he answered. The car wash attendant then decided to sell it to the second attendant for anything he could pay. So, the second attendant gave him all his wages for the day and took the object to a goldsmith to help him check what the object was. The goldsmith cleaned and put the object in the furnace and discovered it was raw gold. This raw gold turned the life of the attendant that praised God around and was the beginning of his wealth. This is just an illustration of how the riches of sinners or the wealth of the unjust can be transferred to you, as a covenant child of God. 2 Kings 7:1-10 is the story of how four lepers became instant rich celebrities. It is the story of a siege that was so bad that people killed and ate their own children, but these four lepers who were not allowed into the city decided to go to the camp of the Syrian army perhaps the Syrian soldiers might pity and give them food.
But as they went, the Lord amplified the sound of their feet to sound like that of a host of chariots, horses, and soldiers marching, in the ears of the Syrian army. They were terrified, thinking that the king of Israel had gone to hire the kings of the Hittites and the Egyptians to come upon them. So they fled leaving everything they brought- their food, their clothes, their gold, and their silver. 2 Kings 7: 8 (paraphrased) says that these four lepers were not only used to save the city from imminent starvation, they became very rich- FROM 4 LEPERS TO MILLIONAIRE DISTRIBUTORS OF FOOD, CLOTHES, GOLD, AND SILVER! Ah! Prov. 13:22 says: “…the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. “The riches of the Syrian army, their enemies, became theirs instantly. Today’s 1st basic scripture says: “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel” As you continue and persistently acknowledge and praise God, He will put the riches of sinners in your hands.
