Prophet for Profit? No Way!!I have known David Eells since 2005 and he has never asked anyone for anything. He gives away thousands of books,
DVD's & Cd's away at no cost. So far, I have received cases of his book "Sovereign God" and have gien them away,at no cost to myself or those I
give them too.David lives the Word which teaches to be givers not receivers. He lives very humbly, and those who are elders in that ministry live
I can assure you the only profit David Eells is interested in is that which is spiritually stored up in the Kingdom of God.
I once semt in a prayer request asking for agrrement that my computer would "be fixed supernaturally" or that I would find the finances to buy a new
one. I had read testimonies from others of how God "healed" their crashed hard drives and other similiar things that we don't noramlly even think
excercising our faith for. A few days later I received a phone call asking if I would allow them the blessing of purchasing a new computer for me.
David teaches the Bible and it says that if someone asks something of you, you should give it.He tells about how he learned to give and not even hold
back money in the bank for paying bills but giving it to people if they had a need. He does this this because he walks by faith in God knowing God
will meet all of his needs when the need arises and so he doesn't hoard money or hold it back when those around him have a need.He learned to trust
the Word and excercise his faith by starting out small and trusting God in more "challegening areas".
I have been in every Bible study on Sundays and Wed. with the exception of about 4, since the fall of 2005. Never once in any of those 3 hour Bible
studies have I ever heard him even hint that he or the ministry had any type of need whatsoever, and I know there have been needs. Sadly, some think
that walking by faith is announcing to friends or the congregation that they are "believing God to meet " this need or that need". They beleive
this is giving others a chance to give and be blessed but it is not faith at all. AT best it is a form of emotional maniputlation. Tactics like this
are used frequesntly in many "big named" Chruches, but the so called Shepherds and the sheep, but this is not walking by faith. Walking by faith is
taking your need to God not man and beleiving that have received already what you have asked for; then allowing God to meet it in the way he chooses.
David shares in the book "Hidden Manna for the End times", many testimonies of how God has honored his trust and faith in God and God's promises.He
shares how at one point, after just moving to FL, they had no food in the house. His wife asked him what she should do for supper and he instructed
her to set the table as usual. They sat down and David prayed and asked the Lord to provide their need or fill their stomachs. Within seconds, one by
one, the children asked to be excused as their stomaches were full and they were no longer hungry. God had filled them supernaturally and had been
faithful to His Word. There are many more awesome testimonies in this book, and I highly recommend that everyone read the book online or listen to the
audio, or DVD.
After 4 years of being part of the UBM Bible studies, communicating with David via phone, and email, and having watched his walk before the world and
the Lord, I have to say ABSOLUTELY NOT, David Eells loves Jesus,the Body of Christ. He believes the Word which commands us TO WALK BY FAITH
AND NOT BY SIGHT and to deny ourselves, pick up our cross and follow Jesus Christ. This means not being a part of this world, loving the world or
worldly things. So again, NO, he is not a Prophet for profit. I don't ask anyone to believe me, but beleive the Word, which says in Matt. 7
that a bad tree can't produce good fruit, or a good tree-bad fruit. Look at the fruit, ask God, He will answer and if you are His sheep, you
will hear his voice clear.
