The Key To Supply

Therefore, take no thought, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ (For the Gentiles seek after all these things.) For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you. MATTHEW 6:3-33 MEV

Jesus here is teaching us the secret of supply, so long sought by billions.

It is NOT put God and His work first. Neither is it pay God first out of your income. Both are noble concepts but are definitively not the secret to supply.

The secret is so simple you could miss it easy. Like many things, you can over-think it.

It is exactly what Jesus said it is.

Seek first the Kingdom of God and supply will be yours.

Now if you start to think about the Kingdom in castle-in-the-air, misty-eyed terms or as kumbaya singing round the campfire with your Jesus sandals on, you are way off beam. Very often we think we are being “Kingdom-minded” but all we are doing is creating a fantasy escape realm in our mind.

When Jesus is speaking about the Kingdom here He is simply referring to the DOMINION or RULE of God. In other words, He is telling us to be DOMINION-MINDED.

It’s the same when He tells us to seek God’s righteousness. He is not talking about moral perfection but about the old-fashioned sense of righteousness i.e. that we have the right or entitlement to something. We would call this rightstanding.

If you are in rightstanding with a king, you have the right to be blessed by that king.

Jesus is simply saying that we need to seek first i.e. beforehand that we have the right to supply. If we do, then that right gives us AUTHORITY to exercise DOMINION.

Look at when God created man:-

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
So God created man in His own image;
in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them. GENESIS 1:26,27 MEV

It is interesting that God’s expectation of the man made in His likeness is that mankind walk in dominion. Dominion is the attribute of God that is foremost in His thinking and the thing God looks for in us.

Jesus is saying that supply comes to us when we walk in the likeness of God by exercising DOMINION. Our right to supply comes from our God-given authority to rule over the earth we live in. Rather than serve mammon and be subject to worry and fear, we are to demand supply from the earth by taking heavenly authority over this world.

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 JOHN 4:17,18 KJV

Perfect love casts out fear. Serving mammon is all about living in fear and worrying about where supply will come from. So perfect love is the key to kicking mammon out and serving God. Note that love is perfected by immersing ourselves in the consciousness that as He is, so are we in this world. This perfectly ties in with what we read in Genesis chapter 1.

To put it in a nutshell, to experience supply we must remember who we are. We are made in God’s image and likeness and are to be incarnations of Him just as Jesus was. As He has AUTHORITY and DOMINION, so do we. We are kings and priests exercising rulership in His Name and by His mandate.

Walking in dominion is the key to receiving supply. That is why we must pursue the knowledge and consciousness of who we are in Him and walk in this.

The more you know who you are and the AUTHORITY and DOMINION that is yours, the more you can walk in His never-failing supply!

YOU The King And Billionaire

crown-iw-370x229

The inner you is a billionaire.

That is the premise of my book DEVELOPING BILLIONAIRE UNCONSCIOUSNESS.

This inner you is the real you, the eternal you, the spirit man.

Man is a tripartite being. He is a spirit who has a soul and lives in a body.

The soul is the interface between the real you, which is the spirit man, and the body. The body is just an earth suit that houses the real you while you are on this planet.

While you live in it, it is a temple because it houses the Holy Spirit, Who is God in the earth.

Now all of this applies if you are in relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

The minute you become a Christian, you enter into billionaire status.

This is because of what happened at the cross.

We see it here in Galatians chapter 3:-

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree),
that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.  GALATIANS 3:13.14 VW

We see here that Jesus was made a curse for us. That is to say, He – the Blessed One – took our cursed condition upon Him so that we could be blessed.

You will see that this blessing is the covenanted Blessing of Abraham. Jesus died so that we could be blessed with Abraham’s billionaire blessing!

Abraham was so rich the country could hardly contain his stuff. He was blessed in all things and had his own private army. He was the confederate and confidant of kings.

Romans 4:13 actually states that the whole planet is the property of Abraham in relation to God’s covenant promise. Abraham was the covenant partner of Almighty God, the Possessor of heaven and earth.

We that are in Christ are blessed with Abraham’s blessing. This includes incalculable wealth and economic dominion.

It really freaks religious spirits out when you say that Jesus died to make us billionaires! It’s okay to talk about having a little cabin in the glory when we die but when you start to talk about invading the 7 Mountains and taking dominion here, that’s when you find out who is spiritual and who is bound by religious devils.

Religion always puts the glory off to the future. Spiritual people can’t exist for a second without the glory and so for us, we are pressing in all the time. This scares people who fret about the love of money because they think if they get a lot of money, it will corrupt them.

God has a great answer for this. It called STEWARDSHIP. Stewards know that they are handling great wealth for Another. When you have the heart of a steward, you don’t need to concern yourself about the love of money.

Stewards are accountable and are tasked with one big thing – the multiplication of that which is entrusted to them.

Masters expect stewards to multiply the investments and resources they are charged with managing.

The next great move of God will be the wealth transfer of the nations to the people of God. Some folks are going to be given wealth they never dreamed of walking in. Some folks, sadly, might fight this move of God. But God is looking for faithful stewards that He can entrust with great wealth.

The coming age will be the billionaire era of the church because it will be the stewardship age of the church.

The time is coming when dominion will be given to the saints of the Most High. This will necessitate the stewarding of massive wealth and resources,

Those who will not be faithful to take their place as stewards because they know better than their Master and because money is “beneath them” will receive the sternest rebuke.

We are not here for our own purposes but for His purpose.

That purpose includes the mandate to invade the Mammon economy, dismantle it and replace it with His Kingdom.

No matter what anyone thinks about it, God will have a people who walk in these things.

That doesn’t mean to say we need to wait for the move of God to reach completion.

Part of the fun of being a believer is that we can walk in the power of the age to come right NOW! Look at David. His heart of worship kept pulling from God a response that meant David walked in the revelation and reality of things way before his time.

For example, 1,000 years before Jesus walked the earth, David had a revelation of Him seated at the right hand of YHWH. And he declared that this One seated at YHWH’s right hand was his own personal Lord and Master!

YHWH said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.     PSALM 110:1

The Tabernacle of David was “out of time” in that it had a lot to do with the New Testament in style and essence.

And David ate the shewbread with his men, that is the holy bread only priests could eat.

What is interesting is that David’s relationship with God brought a reaction that allowed David to walk in things long before his time.

We could say that David’s kingdom and Throne were themselves evidences of this.

We could also say – with reverence – that he and Solomon walked in the realms of dominion and glory that we are to walk in at the end of time.

This is why Jesus said to seek first the Kingdom.

Knowing the real YOU i.e. the king, the billionaire, is the key to walking in that capacity.

 

How To Buy Yourself Some Favour

Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness… LUKE 16:9

Jesus gives advice here which is both profoundly spiritual and completely practical.

We could say it like this: Be savvy with money. Use it to pave a path of favour for yourself.

Financial dominion is not about being a boor – it is about using money to bless others while prospering yourself.

The great danger for spiritual people is that they lose the common touch; they try to distance themselves from money as something vulgar and dangerous to their spirituality. These “spiritual” people look down on others who who are money-savvy.

But Jesus tells us here to make friends with money. Use money strategically to create friendships with others. This doesn’t mean bribery or extortion, it is all about sowing seeds and investing in people.

Blessing others financially is to be a lifestyle, not a manipulative tool. You can reduce or eradicate debts owed by others or you can give them gifts. The point is, be generous and relieve any financial pressure on people.

It only makes sense to do this if you want to walk free of economic oppression in your own life. As you sow seeds of financial liberation in the lives of others, you will reap the harvest in your own life.

Those who fear that they will succumb to the love of money should be aware that the Lord is giving us the key here to stay clear of it. Focusing on others and desiring to see them blessed is a sure fire way to be blessed ourselves – and is also the key to having the sting of avarice taken away.

In this manner the mammon of unrighteousness becomes clean money – it is laundered by generosity and love. Remember that fear is what drives the whole system of mammon and that fear leads to self-interest and self-absorption. By looking to see others blessed, we remove ourselves from the mammon/fear system that most of the world lives under. We rise out of selfishness into “othersness.”

When we are truly Jesus-centred, our focus will be on others. God wants to take us from self-centredness into a place where we become Jesus-focused. That isn’t our destination point, however. No, the destination point is to become Jesus-centred and then, like Him, we will live to bless others.

For the most part, our society is run by people absorbed with self-interest. They try to present themselves as being for others but only the gullible are fooled by our politicians and the business interests that run them.

God wants to invade this system with His Kingdom and transform it. He is looking to dismantle the mammon system of fear and selfishness and replace it with a love and generosity culture. In this new paradigm, the genuinely poor will be set free from oppression and blessed with plenty. Injustices will be righted and removed in the Kingdom.

The entire process doesn’t begin by God destroying the mammon system. In our naivety we used to think that way. And maybe there was the touch of the Sons of Thunder about our thinking.

No, the process begins by doing something different with that which is the problem itself. Money has become unrighteous, tainted by millenia of avarice, greed and corruption. But it’s what you do with the money in your pocket today that will determine planet earth’s future, not the thousands of years of history.

You want to be a world-changer?

Make friends with the filthy lucre in your wallet – and see what happens.

The Key To Defeating Mammon Part 2

When you fear lack you are saying that you are incomplete, not perfect.

A state of nothing lacking is therefore the destination point.

But God’s Word makes it clear that we are already in our destination point. Your spirit man was made perfect i.e. complete in Christ.

YHWH is your Shepherd, therefore you do not lack. In the New Covenant, YHWH lives IN you and lives AS you when you allow His Spirit full sway in your life. It is HIS Life lived in you and through you AS you.

So the One who knows no lack lives in you and you in Him.

When you come to an understanding of this, it is impossible for lack to remain in your life.

Confessing that as He is, so are we is the key because it is a confession we are at telios, our destination point.

Recognising you are already like Him is the key to the new paradigm that the Lord wants us to walk in. It is the key to the realm of perfect love, of unlimited power and unhindered blessing.

It is the key to the Church of Philadelphia, the church of brotherly love.

Eve forgot she was perfectly like her Maker so when the serpent came along telling her she lacked one thing to be like God, she bought the lie of lack.

As a result, lack entered the human race.

Forgetting your Maker is the trapdoor into serving mammon. This is clear when you see Deuteronomy chapter 8:-

Beware that thou forget not YHWH thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;

And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget YHWH thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; DEUTERONOMY 8:11-14 KJV

When you forget YHWH, you are forgetting that He made you in His image and likeness. You then allow yourself to be degraded into the rat race of mammon and start giving yourself credit for any achievements you have.

Since mammon is ruled by fear of lack, this becomes your driving force, your “god” in that you serve it in bondage.

People in the mammon kingdom do not acknowledge God or serve Him.

Serving God means you look to Him as your Source. You cannot do this with a fearful heart so you must cast out fear. Perfect love casts out fear and this love is developed by telling yourself over and over that you are already perfect like Him, that you have reached telios point, in other words.

You must KNOW you are as He is. Fear has no foothold on your finances if you walk in consciousness of your identity.

Lack does not exist in the glory. If you were to leave this existence on earth you would leave behind any poverty, lack or debt which had attached itself to you.

So lack is subject to change because it is temporal.

Lack comes through fear and it is the fear of lack which compels everyone in the system of mammon.

Fear of lack is the same as fear of death.

Jesus became like us to deliver us from this fear – the master fear (Hebrews 2:15). He took on Him human nature and a flesh and blood body to deliver us from mammon.

That deliverance is complete when we acknowledge He took our sin nature and gave us His righteousness.

This is why the things that people strive for under the bondage of mammon are added to us when we become aware of His righteousness i.e. we are just like Him!

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. MATTHEW 6:33 VW

This doesn’t mean put God first. It means you must be aware of God’s dominion and your right and authority to supply – because you are just like Him!

Natural-minded thinking baulks at the idea that man can be like God. But it is God Himself who made us in His likeness!

Jesus was crucified for claiming He was like His Father.

The bold statement that you are EXACTLY like your Father in heaven and Jesus will not only accelerate your spiritual development, it is the key to victory over the system that holds all mankind in bondage.

When enough people walk in this truth, we will see the long-foretold destruction of the Babylonian system and the Kingdom of God abundance economy firmly established on earth.

 

The Key To Defeating Mammon

Jesus cut through the illusions that many live under when He declared that you cannot serve God and mammon.

The implication being that every human serves one or the another.

There is no opt-out, middle way or neutral position. There is no Switzerland in the spirit – you are either serving one kingdom or another.

You either serve God or mammon i.e. the devil.

Now this isn’t a division along lines of the new birth. Jesus is not talking about spiritual parentage; He is talking about the practicalities of life.

You can be a Christian, in other words, and serve the devil.

The difference is what you are functioning in.

Jesus clearly demonstrated in Matthew chapter 6 that you serve mammon by functioning in fear.

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ MATTHEW 6:31 LEB

Worrying about supply is meditation in the fear word of satan. And it is classed by The Master as serving mammon!

If worrying and being fearful is serving mammon, that means functioning in faith is how you serve God.

It’s interesting that Jesus’ focus is on who people serve, not the actual results. Many rich people obviously serve mammon because no matter how rich they get, they worry about losing it.

Fear of lack is serving mammon.

Faith for supply is serving God.

Romans 14:23 tells us that whatever is not of faith is sin. Sin is therefore the product of fear.

Faith produces righteousness (Rom 5:1,2) and fear therefore produces sin.

Since the love of money is the root of all evil, we can safely say this: serving mammon equals fear equals the love of money.

You serve mammon when you fear lack and this leads to the love of money.

The key to serving God is therefore to have faith for supply. This necessitates being absolutely free from fear and worry concerning finances.

So how do you get to this place where you are free from fear and thus in position to function in faith?

There is a shortcut to ridding yourself of fear and rendering mammon powerless in your life. Here it is in 1 John chapter 4:-

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 JOHN 4:17,18 KJV

Fear is the atmosphere that mammon thrives in. But there is NO FEAR in love. So love is the environment in which God’s Kingdom thrives.

Perfect love casts out fear. We could say it like this: Perfect love casts out mammon and the love of money.

Love is perfected in us by consciousness of being one with YHWH. As He is, so are we in this world. “He is” is, of course, what YHWH means.

As YHWH, so are we in this world. We are just like the Father and Jesus. You perfect yourself in love by telling yourself this. “Perfect” here doesn’t mean morally perfect or competently perfect; it means mature, of full age or to have reached the destination point.

You must retain and walk in consciousness of who you are if you are to break free from mammon.

You are made in the image and likeness of God. Eve forgot this in the garden and allowed the fear of lack to convince her she was lacking something. The serpent convinced her there was lack in her life and that she lacked something to be like God.

But Eve was already perfectly like God!

And God has no lack in Him!

If you are AS HE IS, then you have no lack either and therefore nothing to fear.

Lack is temporary and often an illusion anyway.You certainly have no lack in the glory realm.

Fear of lack is satan’s biggest parlour trick. That is why the Bible is emphatic that you do not lack.

It all comes down to consciousness. You will walk in the thing you give most attention to.

You either focus on the serpent’s lies that God has left you short or the Father’s Word that superabundance is yours.

Remember that you manifest what you are feeding your inner man.

What you feed your inner man determines who it is that you actually serve.

Feed yourself with faith and all things will be added to you. Feed yourself with fear and you will have something to worry about!

Prosperity Gospel Lies!

If you believe a lie, you will devastate your life.

You simply cannot afford to believe a lie about money. Sadly, the so-called “prosperity gospel” tells one of the biggest whoppers ever known to humankind. It is this: God makes you rich by your giving. Now I know some of you have your feathers ruffled and you may even have testimony to the opposite i.e. you may have given to God and seen it return multiplied to you. That’s nice. I have testimonies like that too. I didn’t say God wasn’t in the multiplying-back-to-you business. I said it was a lie that God makes you rich by your giving.

If you give God £1 coins and He keeps giving you back £100, any fool can work out it won’t be long before you can be called rich. But that still isn’t how God makes you rich. God made you rich long before you ever got into the subject of prosperity. 2 Corinthians 8:9 tells us that Jesus was made poor so that we can be rich. This refers to the cross, where Jesus experienced the Roman sentence of crucifixion. Crucifixion wasn’t meant just as a capital punishment; it was an economic judgment designed to imprint on the minds of those who saw crucifixion victims the power of Rome to utterly strip them of everything they had and were. Our sanitised pictures of the crucified Jesus allow Him the dignity of a loincloth, something the Romans definitely would not. Nakedness was a symbol of the impoverishment experienced by those who dared oppose Rome.

Jesus became poor at the cross so that the blessing of Abraham could come upon the nations. This blessing was, in modern parlance, a billionaire blessing since Abraham’s wealth was off the charts even in his day. If it offends you that the Holy Spirit inspired Galatians 3:13,14 to get this marvellous truth across to us, then you need to deal with religiosity. The simple truth is that financial and economic success is our covenant right and is in the atonement. Jesus had to endure utter impoverishment at the cross so that God’s compact with Abraham and the fathers could be actualised in our lives. The glorious reality is that every believer is thus rich BY GRACE!! Note that 2 Corinthians 8:9 says just that – “You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ…”

Prosperity is thus a grace issue, not a performance issue. You don’t have to give to preachers – me included – to get rich. I tell my folks this and guess what? They are getting rich! By that I mean they believe they are rich already and it shows up in their lives. One member of our church recently got a happy five-figure surprise when he went to the ATM! And you know what they do? Shrug their shoulders, say “Oh that’s Abraham’s blessing manifesting AGAIN. Thank You, Lord!” and then they move on, believing for more.

There is no “getting rich” for the Christian. The truth is, you GOT RICH at Calvary. And money was by no means all of it or even remotely the most precious part of it. But it is an important part. You need money to function and perform the task God has called you to do. When you understand that you don’t “get” rich – you ARE rich – it strips the potency of avarice over your life. You don’t have to get rich anymore! You just believe you are funded. It works!! You need faith for salvation, for healing, for deliverance and for everything God gives. Why would you suppose prosperity would be any different? But so-called prosperity preachers will tell you that you have to give to God before He gives to you.

That is a lie from the pit of hell and I don’t apologise for saying so.

But let me say this. You should give to preachers and ministries (i.e. good ones) because it is biblical and God-ordained to do so. And God will certainly see to it that your money is multiplied back to you when you sow in good soil. Because giving is designed by God to make you richer. You already got rich at the cross. But now you can use the power of multiplication to get even richer. It is the continued pouring-in of grace and favour that makes you rich (see 2 Cor. 9:8); then it is in your hands to multiply it even more by giving (2 Cor. 9:8-11)! God will even multiply your seed for sowing, as well as your seed sown i.e. He will supernaturally multiply your seed before you sow, thus multiplying your harvest!

This isn’t splitting hairs. You cannot afford to believe that God makes you rich because of something you do i.e. give money to ministries. That means your wealth is based on your works. You must believe the Word – that He makes you rich because you are blessed with Abraham’s blessing. When Abraham first heard this good news, he just accepted it in faith! And God accounted it to him for righteousness! In other words, Abraham’s right to walk in the billionaire class was by simply believing that God said he could! And the wealth showed up in Abraham’s life to back up what God said.

If you will simply believe you can walk in the same deal as Abraham, it will show up in yours too!

For biblical proof and extra-biblical evidence that Jesus walked in Abraham’s billionaire blessing, please request my book: Jesus: Millionaire

Tycoon YOU

I feel emboldened to make a strong statement which will stir up some religious devils. Here it is:

JESUS DIED TO MAKE YOU A TYCOON.

Now I am aware that even people who believe in prosperity will think that to be a crass statement but sometimes truth is only heard when it is framed in a provocative manner. The reality is, this statement is all Bible. Let me prove it:

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.  2 COR 8:9 NKJV

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. GALATIANS 3:13,14 NKJV

Can it be plainer? Jesus became poor on the cross so that we could be rich. Most people don’t know it but crucifixion was an economic judgment in the Roman mentality; it signified Rome’s ability to reduce people to utter destitution. Jesus endured this complete impoverishment for our sakes. In short, you getting rich is part of the atonement!

I realise some desperate souls have tried to make the “become rich” part here relate to “spiritual” riches. However, the context is clearly financial. The passage in Galatians further underscores the glorious truth that Christ hung on the tree to get Abraham’s billionaire blessing upon us. Abraham was VERY rich in cattle, silver and gold (the commodities of God) and had his own private army. He was the confederate of kings and was blessed in everything. In modern language, he was clearly a multi-billionaire.

The blessing of Abraham was both personal and corporate. Individual descendants of Abraham could expect to walk in it (see Deuteronomy 8:18). Also, there was a national birthright blessing passed from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob down to Ephraim. Christ’s becoming a curse took care of both aspects of this and allows us to walk in Abraham’s billionaire blessing today!

In polite circles it may be considered rude and crude to talk so plainly about money but I am not being polite here. Jesus suffered unspeakable agonies to get you righteous, delivered, healed and funded to tycoon levels at least. When you believe this, it shows up in your life. The point is not how many millions or billions you manifest – the point is that God is your infinite Source. Money is but a byproduct. If you chase after it, you have missed the real message and you will pierce yourself through with many sorrows.

I see it all the time – people who shun the simple message that God made you rich at the cross will do the strangest, most degrading things to get money. I’m talking about holier-than-thou preachers who look down their nose at those of us who say God wants you rich but who will hustle and prostitute themselves in disgusting ways. 

Now I am not preaching what men call the prosperity gospel. That is a racket. “Give big to God and He’ll give big to you” and all such. What they mean is “Empty your pockets and make me rich.” You see, the Bible says being rich is a GRACE matter, not a “Give till it hurts” matter.

“But what about sowing and reaping, Preacher? Isn’t that God’s way of making Christians rich?” No, it is God’s way of making EVERYBODY rich. You see, some of the biggest sinners on the planet work sowing and reaping all the time. They buy stocks at £1 each and sell them at £100 each. Farmers who don’t know Jesus know how to multiply seed and get rich. Sowing and reaping is not God’s supernatural way of enriching the Christian. You get rich at the cross!

God makes you rich before you ever get to sowing. He multiplies seed for sowing!! Where the man who doesn’t know Jesus invests £100, God makes sure you have ten times that to invest. But you won’t learn this by listening to the swindlers.

Anyway, Jesus died to make you a tycoon. That might shock you a little, especially if you have some religious demons. But if we all accepted it, being a tycoon would soon be just the norm anyway. The Puritans could accept such things. They knew their God and they knew their Bibles. They knew poverty was of the devil, too. And they knew the secret of defeating the love of money. Do you?
