intends to move much wealth into the hands of those capable of handling it. Much
of the shaking that is taking place now will prepare the Church for the massive
harvest of souls as we approach the end of the age. This harvest will require
sense that we are at the tail end of an initial work relative to God's plan for
the use of money. Much of this move has obviously been more flesh than Spirit.
As with Sara the wife of Abraham, who had Godís direction but lacked His
timing or specific course, the first attempt at prosperity, THE PRESENT
PROSPERITY MESSAGE, has produced many Ishmaels, appealing to greed,
self-righteousness, and doctrines of man directing God. It is rooted in the
flesh with impatience and greed Ė ďIts my time to get my stuff from my
we will soon see is a true Isaac in the form of a true prosperity message
that speaks of a great wealth transfer which ONLY involves dead men, men who
have nothing but Godís purpose in their heart. Some may be disappointed to
hear that God will not allow great riches (mammon) to destroy man in order
that man finance great works for God. Unlike Ishmael, God created Isaac for
Godís purposes. Unlike Ishmael, God does not have to fight through flesh in
dealing with Isaac. Godís purpose with Godís men relative to money is soon
to be evident in the earth, but these purposes will only work in men who have
been tested by the fires of affliction, men whose trust for God is matched by
Godís trust for them.
time for pleading and begging is over. God pays for what He orders. His
resources are in place and those with a sense of destiny and purpose will find
the necessary resources, spiritual and natural, to perform His will. How great
it is to step into the Jordan to cross, without a boat or bridge, and see the
river part. Watch as God continues to raise up a remnant of people who will
exercise complete control over mammon, who will neither be swayed to the left or
right, up or down, but will flow with His spirit in financial affairs. Think it
not a strange thing that even now God is requiring us to trust him completely in
the area of money. True trust for him requires a revelation of His rest, the
place where we have ceased from our own works, where God is truly our provider.
Trust is obedience and the willing and obedient eat the good of the land.
time for trickery and deception is over. When we give in an effort to move the
hand of God, we have entered the arena of self-righteousness, a product of the
worldís system. The worldís system will no longer work for the called of
God. In the days to come, much will be exposed about the real motive relative of
the present day prosperity message. Many will leave these ranks wounded and
disappointed, however, even now God is raising tried, tested, and true men of
God who know that Godliness with contentment is great gain, who know that to
chase money is to leave the blessing of God, who know that the word without the
spirit is law, who know that Godís provision comes through relationship and
time for hype and emotional manipulation is over. Men will begin to see that the
play upon the souls (emotions) of men will no longer extract large sums of money
for man inspired good works that look like God, but which God has no part of.
Discernment in the Body will evaporate this long used often-abused way of man
(the world's system).
to realize that just as you cannot receive life from those with blood types that
do not match yours, so too is the spiritual blood that courses your spiritual
veins - YOU CANNOT RECEIVE LIFE FROM THOSE WHOSE SPIRITUAL BLOOD DOES NOT MATCH
YOURS! In fact, as you mix your blood with theirs, death occurs. The modern day
prosperity message is death! Ministers, Ministries, and Churches with the bless
me! Bless me! Bless me! Motive will bring death to those who whose motive is to
dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
