The purpose of this vision is primarily two-fold:
- HalleluYah Scriptures are NOT FOR SALE
- HalleluYah Scriptures are FREE to EVERYONE who CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY THEIR OWN- Supported by those who can afford for this is the heart of the Father and His Word.
The costs of printing the HalleluYah Scriptures is not given for any other reason other than giving a comparison of the price others are placing on obtaining a copy of the Word.
For example, many websites are demanding anywhere from $30 – $80 for a restored Name Scriptures. The way we see this vision — if you CAN afford to buy the Word at such a price, then please consider that if you donated that amount to HalleluYah Scriptures you could order a copy for yourself… and be able to help a number of others who would be greatly blessed with a FREE copy of His Word!
This idea is best summed up in The Word itself:
“And the group of those who believed were of one heart and one being. And no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had all in common.” — Acts 4:32
Also take note of the Torah which commands not to make profit on food given to the poor:
“And when your brother becomes poor, and his hand has failed with you, then you shall sustain him, and he shall live with you, like a stranger or a sojourner. Take no interest from him, or profit, but you shall fear your Elohim, and your brother shall live with you. ‘Do not lend him your silver on interest, and do not lend him your food for profit.’ ” — Wayyiqra 25:35-37
We believe that our Spiritual “food” — His Word — is at least, if not more important than physical food, and if we are not to give food for profit according to , then we would obviously not make a profit on the Scriptures!
Since this website has been going we have received hundreds of messages from believers not only in 3rd world countries, but in the U.S. and elsewhere where many have lost their jobs in the worldwide recession or similar situations who struggle to get by. What a blessing if you can afford to gift someone a copy of the Word of !
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. — Mat 6:19-21

Another issue that has been raised
Rather than order ten copies to give away yourself, we encourage you to send people to the website in order that they take the small effort of ordering a free copy for themselves. This is more of an act of commitment on behalf of the recipient than just handing out free copies randomly — with the potential of having them sit on a shelf while others who are truly in need go without.
We must be good stewards of what has blessed! There are of course exceptions as there are a number of missionary types out there who may need a small bundle of copies. Just keep in mind… sensibility is necessary in this age where there are some who would take advantage of the generosity of others.
