    Jim Excellent advise. I believe contrary to modern opinion that God does want us out of debt so we can more abundantly support the coming revival upon our earth before the Second coming of Christ. Many believers today think that if they have an expensive car or house they are blessed. Unfortunately they don't tell you their monthly payments. Debt is not a blessing.
