God’s Will Is Wealth

I have been an abundance preacher for many years. I’ve preached it through times of biting poverty and times of wonderful prosperity.

For me, abundant wealth is not about my experience, it is spiritual truth and reality. It has nothing to do with the opinions of men but only about what God has said.

It’s interesting to me that over the years the most vehement opposition to the truth of Kingdom wealth has come from two groups of people – those who are comfortably well off and those who have the hustle on.

Christians who are what we used to call middle class and live in nice homes can be the fiercest of critics when it comes to the message of abundance. To them, the message is vulgar. It’s like : “God forbid we should teach those poor folks they can prosper and have some of them come live beside us in our quiet leafy avenue.”

To these snobs, prosperity is not for lower classes. Their mantra is: “God doesn’t want everybody to be rich, you know.” Thankfully, 2 Corinthians 8:9 is still in the Bible. Of course, they aren’t included in the constituency of the poor that God has picked out to struggle with poverty, debt and oppression.

Then there are the hustlers. These are the folks – and there are many of them – who are quite vicious in their decrying of anyone who preaches a message that seeks to help people financially. Yet they are hustling for money themselves, running businesses and doing dodgy, often downright criminal things to get a buck.

I have known pastors who rail against the prosperity gospel yet are so riddled with the love of money they are always hustling for £££s and am aware of awful acts of violent criminality in the pursuit of it.

Then there are the big-name preachers who have become millionaires preaching and writing against… preachers who are millionaires.

I just keep preaching what the Lord has told me to preach – that THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM is for every believer, that it is established by God’s giving of His power to get wealth, that Jesus died to get this wonderful blessing upon us all, that abundance can be ours through unmerited favour being lavished upon us so that we can have all sufficiency at all times with more than enough overflow to bless every good work and that Kingdom wealth is ours to be a blessing.

I don’t care about what naysayers have to say, nor do I have any truck with poverty devils or religious demons.

God wants a generation to steward the wealth transfer that is coming, a people positioned to take over when Babylon falls.

I believe that can be our generation if we will put aside childish things and dopey doctrine, taking our place as God’s end time ekklesia.

When The Gospel Ain’t The Gospel

Benny Hinn’s pronouncement on the Prosperity Gospel is about 30 years too late for me.

I am not having a pop here at Brother Benny. I remember driving my uncle down to the Manchester Arena to hear Benny some years back and I remember putting some serious money into the offering. I also remember that my uncle left that meeting without his cancer and lived in good health for many years. So I won’t be jumping on any bandwagon attacking Benny Hinn.

What I mean by 30 years too late is that, after some serious seeking God on my part regarding financial prosperity, He gave me awesome revelations that continue to this day. The essence of which is this: We as believers are not made rich by our giving; we are made rich by Jesus becoming poor on the cross. Abundance financially is our Covenant right.

You don’t get rich by giving to preachers or “sowing a seed that hurts.” You get rich by being a child of God and thus an heir.

Giving is a vital thing and you will get blessed for it. But not if you do it out of fear, religious pressure or garbage doctrine like the give-big-to-get-big so-called prosperity Gospel which isn’t good news and is just a manipulative tool to get money out of YOUR pocket and into the preacher’s.

Kingdom Wealth is all about knowing that God wants us rich for HIS purpose and that we are stewards on assignment.

Prosperity is a blessing obtainable by FAITH, not by being guilted into giving till it hurts.

You don’t have to break the back of poverty with your seed. Jesus broke it by being the Seed of Abraham and taking the curse of poverty upon Him on the cruel tree.

In many ways the Prosperity Gospel is an aberration of the true Gospel. One of the things God said to me back then was that I wasn’t a Prosperity preacher, I was an ABUNDANCE preacher! My message is that people can walk in God’s abundant provision, not prosperity that relies on giving and legalistic tithing.

Renew your mind on these matters and see your financial life radically change for the better!

Seek First The Dominion

“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  MATTHEW 6:24-33 NKJV

We major a lot on prosperity and finances. Why? Because we need these things to do our job as believers.

The reality is we require finances to fulfil our assignments in ministry. God’s people need money to do God’s business.

Notice from this discourse that Jesus begins in verse 24 by speaking about dominion. He says: “You cannot serve God and mammon.”

You are going to serve one or the other; there is no neutral zone you can escape to. Which means either you will be under God’s dominion or mammon’s.

Jesus makes it clear here that it is possible for you to end up serving money and not God. This means you can become a slave to your needs.

You do this by worrying i.e. meditating in fear. However, He shows us how to reverse this process in verse 33. We are to seek first i.e. make a priority the Kingdom of God. This means the dominion of God. In other words, God will give us dominion over the world system of need and lack. When this happens, the things we need and desire will be added to us.

The issue isn’t one of prosperity; it is one of DOMINION. Prosperity is the result of saturating your consciousness with the reality of your dominion in Christ.

In the world system, prosperity and wealth define your identity. Being rich gives you status and prestige. However, in God’s Kingdom you are a king and priest because you are His child. This entitles you to be funded at the level of royalty!

Jesus is saying here not to go after the stuff. Don’t pursue the things – pursue the deep understanding you require of your true identity and the things will pursue you!

This explains why some believers are not successful in manifesting prosperity – they are going after things. When you do this you are actually being need-conscious, not God-conscious and not dominion-conscious.

“Seek first the Kingdom… and His righteousness.” What does this mean? Well, when you understand righteousness you will have the key to receiving your needs met. Righteousness means “right” or “right-standing.” In other words, the righteousness of God gives you right-standing with Him. This means the ability to stand in His Presence without fear, condemnation, guilt or shame. 

When you have this right-standing, you then have the right to receive what is rightfully yours! What is rightfully yours? Whatever He promised. What did He promise? ALL THESE THINGS shall be added to you!

You have the right to expect God to meet your needs on the Solomon level of abundance or above! “How much more” levels of supply belong to you (see Matthew 6:28-30)! Also, you are blessed with faithful Abraham so Abrahamic levels of supply are what you can expect (see Genesis 12:1-3; Genesis 13:1,2; Galatians 3:9,14,29).

David understood this:

Let them shout for joy and be glad who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, “Let the LORD be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” PSALM 35:27 NKJV

In other words, David was saying “Let them shout for joy and be glad WHO ARE PROMOTING MY RIGHT TO PROSPER!”

Prosperity is based on right. Right is based on authority. Authority is another word for dominion!

You can only prosper if you have a right to. You can only have a right to if someone authorises you. Where is the believer’s authority in the financial realm? 2 Corinthians 8:9 is the scriptural foundation of believers’ right to prosper. Being rich is the express purpose and will of God.

“What about the love of money?” someone will ask. “What about it?” is my reply. The love of money comes from a neglect of Jesus’ command to seek first God’s dominion in Matthew 6:33. People with money-lust are in bondage to the world system of need and lack. They are not acting like God’s dominion people. They are pursuing things instead of following Jesus. They are dominated by mammon instead of exercising Kingdom authority.

So how can the believer manifest financial wealth, then? By focusing on dominion, not the things that signify wealth and prosperity; by understanding his/her right to get money based on being seated in heavenly places in Christ;by being Kingdom-wealth minded.

Your authority in Christ is your ticket to all your desires and needs being met!
