Promised Land

Are Your Blessings being stolen?

Many Christians trust, believe and obey the financial principals God has laid out in His Word regarding the giving of tithes and offerings and the consequent promise of His care and provision.  Multitudes have proven God’s Word to be true in this respect and have experienced the miraculous in their lives as they live under His providence and care, and they are blessed in abundance as His Word promises.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”  Phillipians 4:19

However, there are also faithful servants of God who have been obedient to the principles, yet have not seen the promises, some living in lack having fallen into despair and perplexity.  There can be many reasons for this, such as possible generational iniquity, and with prayer and seeking the Lord He will reveal the cause.  However, the Lord has shown me that much of the time we are sabotaging our own blessings with the words of our own mouth, and we nullify the potential fruit from what we have sown.  These can be words of unbelief birthed from a place of disappointment from not having seen the fruit of our expectations in the past; it can be from an ungodly belief that God will not come through for us even when we do everything right.  However, t can also be the reaping effect set in motion from negative, judgmental words spoken over others. These conditions reveal a heart that is in need of cleansing as the words says, out of the heart the mouth speaks!

When we speak negative words of doubt and fear over our lives, over our finances and other people’s lives, we work with the enemy at sabotaging our own blessings.  The mouth can reap a harvest of unrighteousness, providing demons with the legal right to steal and destroy every good blessing God desires to give us. In the parable of the sower, when the sower sowed his seed the birds of the air devoured it (Luke 8:5-15). When someone sows and the seed falls by the wayside, is trampled upon and demonic birds devour it as it says in Luke 8, it reveals a lack of care and complacency regarding God’s Word, or a prophetic word received—the consequence is fruit easily picked off by the birds. We must remember that words of fear, doubt and unbelief will always be used by satan to accomplish his ends to negate God’s blessings.

There are natural and spiritual laws and principles set in place by God that govern the universe and our world.  God’s spiritual laws are equally as powerful as the natural laws that He established.  They govern our lives and are at work whether we are aware of them or not, and whether we understand them or not!  These laws are taught in God’s word and with understanding they open the possibility for the release of the fullness of the blessings of God in our lives.

The Law of Sowing And Reaping

As Christians, we can make the mistake of glossing over the principles written in the Word, to our detriment.  Adherence to principles such as Matthew 7:2 and Mark 11: 26, need to be foundational in the Christian walk: “Do not judge or you too will be judged, in the same way that you judge others you will be judged, and with the same measure you use it, it will be measured to you”,Forgive and you will be forgiven, if you will not forgive, God will not forgive you.   ”The root of these precepts can be found in Galatians 6:7: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, whatever a man sows that he will also reap!”  The whatever covers every aspect of life; whether we sow love, kindness and compassion and our finances, or we sow anger, hatred, unforgiveness and offense—we will reap in kind. This principle works both in the positive and in the negative.  Obedience to God’s precepts is extremely important as they are always at work affecting our lives daily—our relationships, our health and financial prosperity.

If God’s law of sowing and reaping is set on course by words and actions, all our good declarations and decrees, all our attempts at faith are being nullified by negative words of fear and unbelief that we speak.  Israel could not enter and possess the Promises of God because of fear, murmuring, grumbling and complaining!  Only two men of faith, who SPOKE WORDS OF FAITH of that generation were allowed to enter.  After spying out the land, they brought back evidence of BIG FRUIT in the Land of Promise!  Our words can either be embedded with fear and hopelessness, or spoken in the faith of God, they can be embedded with power, and miraculous supernatural ability to perform God’s will for our lives! 

In God’s kingdom, health and prosperity are a by product of a life that has worked to lay a good foundation through obedience to eat, live and declare God’s Word. Such a life will also be able to maintain health and prosperity and not be in a continual cycle of loss and gain!

In the parable of the sower, Jesus said that the seed was the word of God!  When we sow our finances based on the Word of God, then in faith continue to water it with the Word of God, IT WILL PRODUCE ABUNDANT FRUIT!  God says that His word will accomplish what He sends it to do!

Christ Our Redeemer

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT CHRIST IS THE REDEEMER! For all who have sown finances over the years and have not seen the fruit, for those who have wasted time in error and disobedience in the Kingdom, God is able to recover our losses!  God is able to redeem time and to redeem the harvest that belongs to us from all that we have sown!  God remembers our righteous deeds and words and has been holding the Harvest in store for us!  He is able to redeem our offerings, buy back our losses and restore our fortunes, because He is God—OUR REDEEMER! 

The word redeem means to buy back, to recover by payment something that was pledged. When Jesus gave His life for us on the Cross He nullified everything that was against us, and purchased our lives with His Blood.  He signed the note for our debts and marked it paid in full!  In His Power and Might, He is able o recover ALL that belongs to us!   Through repentance He cancels all negative reaping consequences from our words and deeds! Hallelujah!

Deuteronomy 3:1-3 declares that when we return to the Lord’s ways and obey Him with all our hearts—He will restore our fortunes!  The word fortunes sometimes translated as captivity, also means a former state of prosperity! Divine appointments will be established where the King will say: “Give back everything that belonged to her, including all the income from her land from the day she left the country until now” (2 Kings 8:6).  The enemy will be commanded to PAY BACK SEVENFOLD, THOUGH IT COSTS HIM ALL THE WEALTH OF HIS HOUSE (Pro 6:31).

God is about to open the heavens and pour out upon His people showers of blessings to finance and to enforce the Kingdom of God on Earth to gather His Harvest.  There is presently a great Harvest stored up and held in reserve, accumulated from all that the Body of Christ has sown in finances, time, acts of kindness and faithfulness into the Kingdom of God over the years!  This is about to be released in a great wealth transfer from the Royal Bank of Heaven, calculated with Heaven’s accounting system! I heard the Lord say “COMPOUND INTEREST!”  According to Wikipedia, compound interest is the addition of interest to the principal deposit, it is interest upon interest that can produce great wealth in a short time.

Don’t stop giving!   Giving in faith, in the will of God is our insurance for the future!  Let us pray, repent and humble ourselves before our Wonderful God and get ready for a GREAT DELUGE OF HIS GOODNESS!

“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38

A TSUNAMI WAVE OF ANSWERED PRAYER!

According to the Hebrew Calendar we entered the year 5774 on Rosh Hashanah, which fell on September 4, 2013 on the Gregorian calendar. In the Hebrew alphabet the dalet is the fourth letter and means ‘door,’ and its numeric value is four. The dalet represents the humility and poverty of spirit that understands that all things, including success, wealth and opportunity in all spheres come from God alone—that without Him we have nothing and are nothing.

Prophetically, many understand 5774 to be the year of the open door. I believe that the OPEN DOOR is both a DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY and a DOOR OF INVITATION, where we are offered the choice to seize the moment to launch out or to stay within the confines of what is safe and known. I believe that this year will be a year of great favor for those who will take the risk to walk through the doors of opportunity God will open for them; those who will have the chutzpa to boldly lay hold of their destiny in faith.

The year of the OPEN DOOR also represents Jesus who is the Door of God’s House; it is an invitation to enter the abode of God, to dwell in the Awesome Presence of the secret place of the Most High, and to abide and rest in the protection He provides (Ps. 91).

However, even as God will open doors for his people this year—both Jewish and Gentile, I believe that first and foremost the revelation of the dalet is speaking prophetically to the Jewish people – as it is always to the ‘Jew first’ (Rom. 1:16). In 5774 God will be opening doors to Israel to step into the Light of His Glorious Love! 5774 is the year God is opening the door to His Dwelling and He is saying to Israel, as He did to John in Revelation 4, ‘Come up here.’

Yes, God is opening the door for Israel, but He is also opening the door into Israel! When I first became a Christian, the first words God spoke to me was that He was sending me to the nation and people of Israel; well, twenty years have passed and God has never released me to go until now—the door has now opened for me to go in February. In 5774 the door will open for many churches, ministries and saints to travel to Israel with divine assignments, some to bless and some to strategically intercede and birth His kairos moment for this land. Israel is about to experience a great awakening this year as GOD SPEAKS, and the Holy Spirit broods and births the WORD OF GOD for nations, for this Land and its people… as it is also ‘Glory to the Jew first’ (Rom. 2:10).

While listening to an anointed message on God’s amazing goodness, there was pregnant moment when I felt as if I had tapped into the very heart of God and got wind of something He was up to. As I saw it I experienced an instant of incredible joy as I became united in that moment to His mind, heart and intentions for something He was about to do. I experienced insight with incredible clarity that He was overflowing with joy in anticipation of a great move Heaven was eagerly preparing for—God was about to release His promises held in reserve over long periods of time for the Body of Christ—ON A VAST SCALE! These promises have been held in trust for saints who had been faithfully waiting and persevering in the trenches, some for a very long time!

The children of Israel, who after being prepared and refined in the wilderness for a long season, finally received the fulfillment of God’s promise; the word was released through Joshua: “Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, ‘Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days YOU WILL CROSS OVER THIS JORDAN, TO GO IN TO POSSESS THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD IS GIVING YOU TO POSSESS.’ ”

At this opportune moment in history everything was orchestrated to converge in Divine timing as God had prepared an obedient, passionate, overcoming generation who were ready and willing to boldly go in to possess the Promised Land that was their inheritance, and their destiny. This generation was a prepared generation, anointed with the breakthrough anointing of victory! Of this generation it was said, ‘THE SHOUT OF A KING WAS AMONGST THEM! They were a generation possessing divine strength acquired through the battles, having the maturity to hold and occupy the ground He was about to give! I believe God has now found such a generation!

God has not been holding out on us, He has been waiting for the opportune moment—a convergence in time where all parts have come to their fullness at the kairos moment. When Israel was poised to enter the Promised land the enemy rose up to curse them through Balaam to prevent God’s dream from coming forth, but he declared God’s word that there would be NO DIVINATION against Israel and the people of God:

As I sought the Lord for a word that would define 2014 He gave me Psalm 114:

When Israel came out of Egypt, Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
Judah became God’s sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back;
the mountains leaped like rams, the hills like lambs.
Why was it, sea, that you fled? Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
Why, mountains, did you leap like rams, you hills, like lambs?
Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.

Get ready, the wave that is about to land is a TSUNAMI WAVE OF ANSWERED PRAYERS released by a vast army of the angelic host of heaven poised to invade earth. God is asking is your heart prepared. Is your heart right before God? He who is coming will come and will not delay!
