“[the] Sons of Issachar were known for their understanding of the times...”
- 1 Chronicles 12:32
Issachar is a Biblical term from the Old Testament Bible “[the] Sons of Issachar were known for their understanding of the times...” and I believe that I have this gift of “understanding” and I want to share it with shareholders God has placed in the Issachar Fund. In the New Testament Book of Revelation, Jesus comes back as a “Lion” to defeat the devil and restore His Kingdom. This defeat will honor and glorify God and I want to honor God by using the mutual fund symbol of “LIONX” to bring attention to Jesus, my Lord and Savior. My favorite Bible verse is found in Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
God’s Hand of Favor
After 25 successful years of partnership, my business partner felt that God was calling him out of the investment business and into ministry and he wanted me to buy him out. We agreed to pray about it for two weeks while I was on vacation and when I returned we would discuss a buy-out amount. In the first week of prayer, I received a call from the Fund Advisor of the fund that Horizon Capital Management was a Sub-Advisor to. I was told they were making a business decision to get out of the Sub-Advisory business and they were closing the fund that I had been managing for the last ten years. This was a total surprise to us BUT it was an answer to our prayer! Closing the fund meant that all shares would be liquidated and shareholders would receive their money back. Therefore there would be no buy-out because there would be no value left in the company.
Since God had answered our prayer and closed the fund, I prayed and sought the advice of my Pastor. After I explained what happened, he told me that I have the Gift of “Understanding ” and I should open a new fund and call it “Issachar Fund” because the “sons of Issachar were known for their understanding of the times”. He also helped me come up with a symbol for the Issachar Fund of “LIONX” to honor God because Jesus is known as the "Lion of Judah”. I have learned that when God closes one door he is opening another if I am willing to seek His Wisdom. I am very excited about my new partnership and I believe that God will send the right people at the right time to become shareholders in His Fund. Please contact me (Dexter@LIONX.net) if you would like to join me as a shareholder of LIONX. (NLD Review Code 3644-NLD-9/7/2017)
