JUST essential provision…reward/wages/recompense later!

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat (FOOD, trophes, Strong’s 5160).

Matthew 10



“And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should FEED (trephosin, Strong’s 5142) her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.” Rev 12:6


7 Because that for his name’s sake they went forth, TAKING NOTHING of the Gentiles.

8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellow workers to the truth.

3 John 1


Ravenous wolves seeking glory and payment for services rendered:

1 Timothy 5


Eat and drink whatever given?…No! that’s not what apostles Matthew and John record, but Pharisee Paul’s buddy says otherwise –

“And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire (REWARD, misthou, Strong’s 3408). Go not from house to house.” Luke 10:7
