Luke 4:17-21 (KJV) And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

In the synagogue they have a chair up front, and it is empty.  That chair is for the expectation of the Messiah to come.  People got mad at Jesus after He closed that book because He sat in that chair.

Jesus said,

Luke 4:18 (KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; …

That’s what He was announcing because He opened the book to Isaiah 61

Luke 4:19 (KJV) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.   

The “acceptable year of the Lord” is the year of jubilee.  Jubilee is a time where if you owed anybody anything, the debt would be cancelled.  This idea of debt cancellation was something you can see all through the scriptures.

Jesus was really saying that He was the debt canceller.  Let’s read about that in Colossians 2:12-14,

Colossians 2:12-14 (KJV) Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

Say, blotting it out.

If you have ever borrowed money, you got a loan with your name on it and you probably had to make monthly payments.

What this scripture in Colossians 2 says is when Adam sinned, he put your name on a note and Jesus came to get your name off it. 

During the time of Jesus, the merchant men who ran businesses may be borrowed money to start their business, to grow the inventory or whatever have you.  They signed a note, but they paid the note off.  They took that document and nailed it to the front of their business so the people who come will see this is a good business person, a person of honor, a person of integrity because they will pay their debt.  Now that should convince them or influence them in terms of doing business with the business owner.  Today you have the same thing, but they don’t nail this to the door of the business.  They will say this, “We have been in business since 1889.”  That is supposed to imply they are good business people and people are still doing business with them and they are in business to serve. 

I am saying here that Jesus was announcing, “I am the Jubilee.”  I am going to be nailed the Cross and when you see Me nailed, that’s because you are debt free because I’m paying your debt.

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 (MSG) At the end of every seventh year, cancel all debts. 2 This is the procedure: Everyone who has lent money to a neighbor writes it off. You must not press your neighbor or his brother for payment: All-Debts-Are-Canceled—GOD says so.

Wow!  How many of you know God has the last word?  All debts are canceled, God said so.

Now if you look in the Bible when the children of Israel came out of Egypt, noticed they had borrowed things, but they came out and the sea swallowed up Pharaoh and his army.  Debt supernaturally canceled.

Even in the New Testament a man came to the man he owed lots of money.  He said, “Forgive me of my debt,” and he forgave him.

Jesus teaching on prayer, He prayed “Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” 

I am saying to you that God is a supernatural debt cancelling God and because Jesus was nailed to the Cross, all debts are cancelled.  Now like anything else, if you don’t have faith and believe this, this is just another reading to you. 

So, you can take your bills and talk to them because I am sure they are talking back to you, even late at night.  You can say, bills, I am talking to you.  In the Name of Jesus, be paid off, dematerialize, disappear.  Probably the next thing you know, God will tell you to sow a seed and continue to sow as He directs you.  Pretty soon you will be debt free. 

Doing what I am telling you, my husband and I were able to pay off a 30-year mortgage in 3 years and 2 months.  Same with our cars, we paid them off in no time but then now we have paid for the last 2 cars with cash.  We have been out of debt for many years now and continue to sow and reap. We built a brand-new house without a mortgage. 

I am just saying, He can not only get you out of debt, but He can make you the lender.  See, you just don’t want to be out of debt, You want to make some money.  He can make you the lender and not the borrower.

Are you ready to be debt free?  Now let’s believe God. Are you ready to believe?  Do you believe that with God all things are possible? 

When we still owed on our first house mortgaged for 30 years, the Lord spoke to me and asked me when I wanted to be out of debt. The Lord gave me a choice. I said, “In six months.”  I continued to believe Him for six months and we continued to sow seed and at the very end of six months we got the harvest of the mortgage paid off.

In the Old Testament the widow came to the prophet of God and told him she was in debt and couldn’t pay it.  He told her to go and borrow some vessels, come in, shut the door and pour the little oil she had in the house into the vessels.  She did what he said, and she got debt free that quick.  He told her just one thing to do. 

I am giving you a faith assignment to do and that is to speak out loud when you will be out of debt.  You can do this because I did it and because the Word has told you, Deuteronomy 15:2 (MSG) …All-Debts-Are-Canceled—GOD says so.  So, you can say so too. The Word also tells you in Colossians 2:12-14 (KJV) when Jesus was nailed to that cross, your note was nailed to His cross and He became your Jubilee; removing all your debt.   Colossians 2:14 (KJV) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

You are out of debt!  God said so!  Now you say so!

Genesis 8:22 (KJV) While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

God is giving you a relational thing to relate to, sowing and reaping.  Sowing and reaping God calls day and night and also summer and winter.  As long as you are going to have summer, winter, nighttime and daytime; you are going to have seedtime and harvest.  It is going to be in the earth and functioning.

There are two kingdoms on the earth, the kingdom of darkness and the Kingdom of God. We have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness where we knew how to do things according to the system of that kingdom of darkness way; but now we are in the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of His dear Son and in that Kingdom, there is a different way of doing things.

Matthew 6:33 (KJV) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

God knows you need things, but He has a way of adding them and the main way God has of increasing our lives is through sowing and reaping.  A good example of that would be the life of Jacob.  Genesis 30, Jacob worked for a man named Laban who became his father-in-law.  Jacob worked for Laban for seven years to get the daughter he wanted in marriage but was tricked and given the other daughter. Jacob had to work seven more years for the daughter he wanted to marry.  That’s the way the devil.  He wants to keep you working because if you stop working then his system stops. He keeps a person working but doesn’t to give too much to them because they will go on vacation and not work for him.   His job is to keep you working.  People can’t go to church because they have to work.  That’s when you are on the wrong system and that’s your problem. The problem is the system you are in because that system does not want you to get ahead.

Getting on a treadmill you can run and go nowhere.  That’s the same way about the devil. He speeds it up so people get second jobs, speeds it up more and they get a third job because they are trying to make ends meet and it seems like they can never get ahead.  That’s His plan to never let you get ahead because if you get ahead you won’t go to work.  He needs you to work to keep that going.  When you switch systems, you will find that you can go on vacation any time you want to go and where you want to go. 

Some people say they can go on vacation but don’t have the money and have to charge it.  That’s exactly what he wants; because he knows you got to go to work now in order to pay that credit card off.  It’s just a cycle.  I have come off that system and I owe no man anything.  It was my choice and it’s your choice.  You don’t need to stay on it.  Nothing is forcing you on that system except unbelief.  All you need to do is decide I am coming off that system, I want every debt paid, if I buy a car, I am going to buy it cash.  See, you just make up your mind I am coming off that system. 

That’s what happened to Jacob in Genesis 30.  Jacob told Laban, his father-in-law, he didn’t need to pay him anything longer.  Jacob saw Laban’s payment to him was keeping him on his system.  He told Laban to give him every animal born speckled, spotted and striped and everything else was his.  Laban thought he had this fool now; because he knew very few animals came out speckled, spotted and stripped.  Jacob leaving Laban’s system of working for everything and getting cheated, was now working God’s system that is a supernatural system that produced speckled, spotted and stripped animals.

I am saying to you that Jacob decided he was coming off Laban’s system and God then gave him a strategy; God gave him revelation and then Jacob got off the system.

Genesis 31:1 (KJV) And he heard the words of Laban’s sons, saying, Jacob hath taken away all that was our father’s; and of that which was our father’s hath he gotten all this glory.

Jacob took everything his boss had, hard assets, material wealth in this case.

God also has another system for you found in Galatians 6:7,

Galatians 6:7 (KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Some Christians will say, “Oh, you are just trying to give to get.  You are trying to treat God like a Santa Claus.”  Now watch this.  Say sowing and reaping.  Suppose I go to a farmer and he is about plant some corn or soybean seed in the ground and I say, “I know why you are planting those seeds.  You are just planting those seeds just to get a harvest.”  What do you think that he will say? 

I am just telling you right now, yes, you are planting a seed to get a harvest.  You are not entering into greed.  You are trying to get it for a righteous cause.

God has promised you in Psalm 115:14,

Psalm 115:14 (KJV) The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

Don’t let anybody talk you out of the way God has of meeting your needs and getting you out of debt and putting you on top. My husband and I sowed our way out of debt and so will you. We made the decision to switch systems and you can make the same decision and come out of the system of working for everything and trying to get out of debt. Make the decision and declare you are coming out of debt and owe no man anything but to love him and this year you are going to have more than enough. 

Revelation 13:15 (KJV) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

In chapter 13 it talks about the image of the beast and buying and selling and anybody who didn’t have the mark could not buy and sell.  This is a time before Jesus returns and this is what is going on in that short span of time.  We are not quite there yet, but I think this is what Jesus preached on in Matthew 6:24.

Matthew 6:25-26 (KJV) Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Mammon is the god of money.  Jesus was teaching on the fact that God takes care of the birds and they don’t have storehouses or bank accounts, something to fall back on.  He takes care of them.  He says, aren’t you better than a bird?  The answer is yes.

Matthew 6:27-33 (KJV) Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33 (AMP) But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.

Jesus is saying to seek first the Kingdom of God, seek first God’s way of doing and being right.

A man wrote about these last days recorded in Revelations 13:15 and he said, “The only ones that will escape Satan’s economic oppressive, suffocating atmosphere will be the Christians who have discovered God’s laws of sowing and reaping.”  That makes sense because how else are you going to do it?  If Satan is controlling every natural system; you are going to have to go up above the natural and going up above the natural means you are going to have to do something God’s way. 

Now when you do sow, sowing and reaping is not a promise but a covenant and when you enter into that covenant by giving, God now has to give back to you.  That’s what Jesus preached.  He preached the same thing.

Luke 6:38 (KJV) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

That was Jesus’ teaching.  The Apostle Paul preached the same thing. 

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (KJV) But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

In my opinion, I don’t really think a person is really ready to go out there and fight a giant if they have not learned sowing and reaping.  Sowing and reaping is basic, because the enemy’s job is to cut off your resources and to dry you up.  So, if you are in his system, that’s what he does if you are trying to establish some things and take some ground.  His job is to dry you up.  He will cause a problem with a family member who is in an emergency and they tell you they have to have that money right now.  That money will disappear as fast as you give it to them.  That’s Satan trying to dry you up through relatives.  He has many ways he can do it.  When you are not sowing and reaping God’s way and you try to get ahead Satan makes something happen; car breaks down, relative emergency etc.  God has a way Satan cannot touch your money and cannot stop it from coming.

We are not in the time where the people take the mark of beast, but you can prepare for anything Satan would put pressure on you to make you stay under his system.  To come out of his system you have to come out by faith.  Faith is not a feeling.  If it satisfies your logical mine, you are probably not in faith.  My point is, sowing and reaping is God’s way of meeting the needs of His people.  It is His economy.

If you want something other than some money manifestation and you want healing, you are going to have to sow the Word.  You are going to have to sow something because that’s God’s way and the enemy knows that’s God’s way.  That’s why he watches to see if God is going to do something for you without seed.  God is not going to do it anyway because He’s spoken in his Word, “Give and it shall be given unto you.”  He didn’t say it shall be given unto you and then you shall give.  God said to give first.

Luke 5, Peter is in a bind.  He has a fishing business and he needs money since he is not catching any fish.

Luke 5:1-6 (KJV) And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

Did Peter sow something?  Yes.  He sowed his boat, giving Jesus his boat to preach out of.  It was a sacrifice because he had worked the night shift trying to catch some fish for his business to sell fish for the next day.  Peter was tired, toiling all night, a twelve-hour shift; but he sacrificed.  A sacrifice seed will release harvest just like that.

The biggest reason why people don’t do this is, the first one is they just don’t know, and the second reason is fear, they fear it won’t work.  That’s why you have to be strong and be of good courage.  We have to let God’s thought be our thoughts and don’t try to get around God’s ways of doing things.  Satan is betting you don’t play by God’s rules and you are crying and trying to get it some other way.  You don’t have to do that.  You can sow a seed and watch God work.

In Jesus Name I pray that faith arises in you to believe and apply God’s principle of sowing and reaping and make it as a way of life.  I pray you start today and don’t let the enemy talk you out of it so he can control your money and stop your financial increase.  Be strong and of good courage to seek first God’s way of doing and being right so you increase and stop Satan’s control over you and stop him from keeping financial increase coming to you now.

Luke 16:1-8 (KJV) And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. 2 And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward. 3 Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. 4 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. 5 So he called every one of his lord’s debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord? 6 And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. 7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore. 8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

This is one powerful teaching because it is talking about doing business in the Kingdom of God and how it is done, how we are to live in the Kingdom of God, what the economy is like, how does this economy work.

Satan does not create anything new.  He steals stuff and he copies stuff because he lost his anointing.  So, he copies a system and he knows what works because whatever God comes up with works.

So, this steward handles another person’s goods or valuables. He makes sure the company is profitable.  The company was losing money in this scripture.  The master came and said we are losing money and he fired the steward.  Before he officially left the company, he went and found the people who owed the company.  Asked how much they owed.  They said they owed $10,000 so he told them to give him $5,000 and forget the rest of the debt.  The steward went to the next person and asked how much he owed the company and they told the steward and he told them to give him half of what he owed and forget the rest of the debt.  The steward was making friends so when he got fired, they would owe him.  He wasn’t doing it with integrity.  He was stealing but he was saying I’m getting fired anyway so no need for me to make the boss man rich and I am getting fired but it will make me rich.

Luke 16:8 (KJV) And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

The Lord told he had done wisely even though he had stolen money from the company.

Who are the children of light in this scripture?  That’s us in the Kingdom of God.  So, what was this man doing?  He was working a system, the world’s system.

Now the system of the world is corrupt, but there is honor among thieves.  We need to see that.  The mafia has honor among them.  They know how this system works and they work their system.  My point is God has a system.  What Jesus is saying is the enemy is working his system; but why aren’t God’s people working their system?  Here is a system God gave his people found in Genesis 8:22,

Genesis 8:22 (KJV) While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, …

Seedtime and harvest.  Let’s see this system in the New Testament.

Luke 6:38 (KJV) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (KJV) But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Mark 12:41-44 (KJV) And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. 43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: 44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

Now we know the poor widow got a return on her giving because you see the same thing over in 1 Kings 17, where God told Elijah to go to Zarephath and a widow woman would feed him.  Elijah went there and told the woman to feed him first before she and her son and she did, and the barrel of meal did not run out.  What is happening with this?  Let’s look at Proverbs 11:24,

Proverbs 11:25 (KJV) There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.

Proverbs 11:24 (NLT2) Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything.

God said that.  Do you think God lied to you?  This is one of the hardest truths for Christians to believe and receive.  The reason why is because it absolutely defies human reason and it is designed to do that; because God doesn’t want you to follow this principle because it’s reasonable but follow it by faith.

Proverbs 11:24 (NIV) One person gives freely, yet gains even more; …

That doesn’t make sense.

If God’s people just did this then the churches would be running over with wealth.  We are still trying to build church buildings on people’s salaries; but that is not the intent because your salary is your seed.

We need to meditate this principle and break the stronghold that’s trying to keep you from living that way and it will be all right. 

Look at what Jesus said about it in John 12:24,

John 12:24 (KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

Jesus took His life and worked this principle.  I am not talking about His money.  He took His life and worked that principle because nothing can abrogate it or, nothing can suspend it, nothing can stop it from working; because you just jumped up in the spirit when you worked that law and it has dominion over every natural thing.

The best thing the devil could try to do when you sow, is try to talk you out of expecting a harvest.  When you sow, sometimes he will come to you and tell you, “See it doesn’t work.”  Then people open up their mouth and say things like, “I shouldn’t have done that.  That was my last.”  No.  Don’t say anything.  The Bible tells us when we have a bad thought to put our hand over our mouth.  Don’t let your mouth say anything and watch what happens.

In the body of Christ, we are going to break this cycle of lack, cycle of debt and we are going for it.  Say, I am going for it.  We will break these cycles through applying this principle of the Kingdom of seedtime and harvest.

So, the steward was working a system and he was lying, and it was corrupt, but it was his system.  God said this man in his generation is wiser than the people of light; but God’s way is on the opposite side, that when you do give then it will be given back to you.  This scripture talked about a whole economy that is higher than this one of the world.

One man said, “If you learn how to sow and reap and know how to work this principle, you can be richer than Bill Gates.”

You will sow and reap, sow and reap.

One person continued to sow and reap, sow and reap and they got the land they needed which was almost as big as a state.  They were sowing and reaping, sowing and reaping each year for seven years.

Remember sowing and reaping is the Kingdom way for you increase more and more.  God said so,

Proverbs 11:24 (NLT2) Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything.

Matthew 6 Jesus is teaching on the Lord’s prayer.

Matthew 6:10 (KJV) Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Jesus teaching us the Lord’s prayer, taught us to pray God’s Kingdom come and God’s will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  It doesn’t look like Heaven on earth and that’s why we need to pray it gets that way.  How is it in Heaven?  In Heaven there is no shortage.

One reason Jesus came to the earth was to teach us how to function in the earth’s economy according to Heaven’s economy.  There is no shortage and no financial struggling in Heaven. This is one reason Jesus told us to pray God’s Kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  That’s the way it was in the Garden of Eden as there was no struggle there.  Toiling for a living and struggle didn’t come until Adam sinned.

Genesis 3:17 (KJV) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

Genesis 3:17 (AMP) And to Adam He said, …You shall not eat of it, the ground is under a curse because of you; in sorrow and toil shall you eat [of the fruits] of it all the days of your life.

In the New Testament we see toil in Luke 5 where Peter was fishing for his fishing business, but he had caught nothing.  Then we see Jesus in this chapter teaching on how to live in this economy according to Heaven’s economy with plenty and no shortage.

Luke 5:4 (KJV) Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

Draught means a big increase and toiling we just discovered came with the curse.  So, in Galatians 3:13,

Galatians 3:13 (KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

So, Jesus has redeemed us from the curse and so our days of toiling for a living are over.

Peter toiled all night and caught nothing and which is one of the signs of the Babylonian system, and it is a system of shortage and brings fear of running out.  In the Kingdom understand that God runs you over.  But as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7) and so Jesus has got to change Peter’s thinking before he can participate in the Kingdom and believe that way. 

Mark 9:23 (KJV) Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Jesus is saying, there are things that God cannot do for you until you believe.  As a believer, if you believe that you will never run out, then whatever God says to you, you will do it.  If you really believe that. What happens sometimes is God challenges whether you believe that or not.

Luke 5:4 (KJV) …he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 …nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

See, you can’t believe without the Word.  Peter launched out and caught so many fish his net broke and the boat was sinking and the same happened to his fishing partners.

God pulled in a boat sinking, net breaking load of fish.

If you believe you won’t run out, you will never, ever run out.  There is not an economy that can make you run out; because if God let you run out; He will violate His Word.

You can’t hear the Word over and over again and your life stay the same.  That’s not the way God planned for it to be.

We need to challenge ourselves and ask, am I being religious so that I can’t receive?  Or am I a true believer? 

God wants to take care of His family without the Babylonian system taking care of His family and they experience struggle and shortage and that’s why we need the written Word of God and the spoken Word of God and becoming believers of the Kingdom of God system.  We have heard this Word of God long enough and now it is time to participate.

Peter was seemingly the only one that always wanted to participate. He walked on the water when Jesus told him to come to Him and everybody stayed in the boat.  There are people who are trying to get promoted without demonstration and that is not the way the Kingdom works.

We need to challenge ourselves to give beyond what we have been giving.  God wants to challenge us to go deep enough so that He can release sufficient amount of faith to get what we need.  Once you sow that seed nothing can stop it.  God is not talking about you get in trouble and you sow a seed.  God is talking about a lifestyle.  That’s the way you are going to live.

God doesn’t want us to live on a salary.  If that is all you are living on, then Babylon will you.  You want to live much beyond your salary.  Your salary is nothing but seed.  If that causes you to fear, then you need deliverance.  You need to sit under the Word of this kind, and you say, Holy Ghost, deliver me from evil, because that is evil.

Say, there’s plenty in Daddy’s house, plenty, enormous supply, enormous supply.

The problem is we think we are going to run out.  That is a thought that has been ejected into people’s minds to keep them in bondage.  Now you have been freed, saved, and sanctified.

2 Corinthians 8:9 (KJV) For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

Jesus died for our sins, but He also died and became poor that we might be made rich.  Say rich.  Say it a little louder.  I want you to say that because some people have a problem saying rich.  So, Jesus suffered to that you can have plenty.  He came to enrich us spiritually, physically and financially.  Say amen.

Everything God made in this earth, He made for you to enjoy.  God didn’t give you struggle because there is no joy in that.  The Bible says the earth is full of His riches and He made them for His children.  So, you want to get this word rich down in your spirit because sometimes people have a problem with that.  The rich that He is giving you is not something that comes through your hard work.  You do work but you don’t work to earn it.  You are working for other reasons and one is to release potential.  In all work and labor there is profit.  You do work but it is not that you are trying to earn something because if Jesus got it all back for you, why do you have to earn what He already got back.

The reason I am going through this is not that someone can be greedy but just to change your thinking about what God says and let that thinking change your mind and if you can change your mind then you can change what God can do through you.

You need to realize that you are not made or supposed to be broke, poor, in lack or just enough. 

Abraham, our father of faith, is someone you need to model yourself after other than our Lord Jesus.

Genesis 13:1-2 (KJV) And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south. 2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

Abraham was not very poor, but it said Abraham was very rich.

We will look at Genesis 26:12 and this is Isaac Abraham’s son

Genesis 26:12-13 (KJV) Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him. 13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

Genesis 26:12-13 (MSG) Isaac planted crops in that land and took in a huge harvest. GOD blessed him. 13 The man got richer and richer by the day until he was very wealthy.

We need to meditate these scriptures to change our thinking.  If you don’t believe for abundance, shortage stuff will start you worrying, and you can’t do what you want to do.

I don’t know about you, but I claim that, richer and richer by the day.  Now I am not trying to get it all for me, but I can do more for God when I am richer and richer by the day.  The idea is that you and I are supposed to be people who can make a difference in a city, in a neighborhood, even a state and even the nations.

God has a plan for our lives and part of that plan is for you to be rich.  So, I am just giving you a reason to be rich and you don’t care what people think or say about it.

2 Corinthians 9:6 (KJV) But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

Now this is God’s plan to meet the needs of His people because when you sow then nothing can stop your harvest.  God wants to add to you.  He doesn’t want you to add to yourself.  That’s why when you sow you trust Him.  God will give you an opportunity, give you an idea or things will happen, and it will come back to you.

2 Corinthians 9:7,8 (KJV) Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

2 Corinthians 9:8 (AMP) And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].

God makes all grace, every favor and earthly blessing come to you in abundance because if you sow, God is now responsible.  You sow, God’s got it.  He wants you to give it to Him and you do it when you sow.  God is giving it to you so you can distribute.  It might come back to you all at once, or sometimes it will come in as you would need it, but it is coming back to you whatever you need.  So, you will never be broke another day in your life and your days of toiling are over.

If you are struggling in your finances and are believing you have received a breakthrough by faith, I would suggest to you to take Communion over your finances.

If you are facing challenging situations in your finances today even after tithing, giving above your tithe and speaking the Word over your circumstances yet you haven’t seen the victory in this area, you may have wondered what else you can do aside from standing for a manifestation.  One powerful tool you can use is taking Communion.

Communion is more than a religious tradition for it symbolizes everything Jesus did for you at Calvary.  When you partake of the cup (representing the Blood of Jesus), you are remembering that Jesus delivered you from all sin, iniquity and transgression.  When you eat the bread (representing His body), you are acknowledging the physical and spiritual torment Jesus endured to deliver you from worry, care, fear, sickness, disease and EVERY PART OF THE CURSE THAT INCLUDES POVERTY, LACK, DEBIT, NOT ENOUGH AND JUST ENOUGH & YOUR EFFORTS OF WORKING FOR ALL YOUR PROVISION.

God created the Lord’s Supper for a reason. When you receive it, you should plan to partake of everything Jesus’ sacrifice provided—salvation, peace of mind, healing of your body and soul (mind, will, and emotions) and total prosperity. Otherwise, you’re neglecting to enjoy the gifts He sacrificed to give you.

You don’t have to wait until you go to church to receive Communion, but you can receive Communion on a regular basis anytime and anywhere and it’s time you start now because the Communion table is the healing table, the deliverance table, the power to prosper table and the confession table.  It’s the powerhouse of God.

Every time we take Communion, it drives our roots even deeper into our faith in what the covenant of God means to us, and what the body and blood of Jesus has paid for us. We use our faith to take Communion, and we do so with determined purpose.

If you need a change in your financial situation, here are tips for taking Communion over your finances:

  1. You can take Communion alone or with family and friends.
  • You can take Communion every day.  Taking Communion is appropriating the Blood of Jesus over your life, thanking Him for ALL He has done.  It is not a religious ceremony, so you don’t have to wait for a minister to serve you.
  • Examine yourself before you take Communion.  The Bible tells us to examine our hearts (1 Corinthians 11:28-29).  Ask God for forgiveness in areas where you’ve missed the mark (strife, unforgiveness, offense, jealousy, envy, hatred, covetousness, fear, worry, unbelief, doubt, etc.) Also, be sure you are not receiving Communion just as a religious exercise but rather accepting everything Jesus’ sacrifice provided. Don’t receive it halfway; that will keep you from receiving everything provided by Jesus’ sacrifice (1 Corinthians 11:30).
  • Partake of the bread, which symbolizes the physical and spiritual torment Jesus bore to redeem you from all areas of the curse. With this in mind, say, “Lord, it’s not right that I suffer from poverty or lack. I judge it now as being from Satan, and I reject it. I refuse to identify with the first man Adam but identify with the Last Man Adam Jesus who got for me every blessing in my New Testament Covenant with Him. I refuse to receive the curse any longer. I partake of the sacrifice of Your Son’s body, and I receive the abundant life that You provided, in Jesus’ Name.”
  • Partake of the cup and make this confession: “Father, I give You thanks for all You have provided for me through the New Covenant in Christ Jesus. I partake of those promises now! I am healed. I am redeemed.  I am prosperous for I am the head and not the tail, above and not beneath and I lend and do not borrow. I take the prosperity You sacrificed to give me, and I thank You and praise You for it, in Jesus’ Name.”
  • Be settled on the matter. Once you have taken Communion, settle your finances in your heart according to God’s Word. Don’t just hope it is done—know it.

No matter what you may be faced with—sin, sickness, drugs, a weight problem, worry, strife, old habits and any situation in your finances—you can be delivered through properly receiving Communion.  The body and blood of Jesus covers every area of your existence.

Place yourself before God and receive Communion as the children of Israel did—ready to receive deliverance in your finances! Take the time to put yourself before God over the Communion table. It will be time well-spent.

Amos 9:13 (KJV) Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

Amos 9:13 (MSG) “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” GOD’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills.

Some people need that scripture because they need that mortgage money or car payment or tuition or rent money right now.

This scripture gives us a wonderful revelation that you don’t have to wait on time.  We have been pretty much under a time driven economy or a time driven society where everything is on time.  You have to go to the eighth grade after you finish the seventh grade, or you have so many vacation days or I am going to be there tonight.  Everything is evolving around time.  The reason why is found in Genesis 1 where it talks about time.

Genesis 1:14-16 (KJV) And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

So, signs, seasons, days and years.  So, if I talk about the greater light and the lesser light, the greater light is the sun and the lesser light is the moon.  The moon has no light of its own.  When you see the moon, you are a seeing a reflection of the sun light.  So, there is the sun and the moon, and they will show you the seasons, show you the years and the signs.

What I am telling you is, the sun starts in the East and travels over to the West.

There used to be something keeping track of time called a sun dial.  It was made in a way that when the sun came up and the position of the sun would cause a shadow of the dial to shine on a certain number.  So, as the sun re-positioned itself, you could tell what time it was.  The day and the night combined equals 24 hours.  That’s where your calendar is made and that’s where you keep time.  That’s what this is set up on.  They could pretty much tell you what time sundown is.  I tell you all of that, to tell you that time was given to you by God as a part of His creation.

Psalm 8:3 (KJV) When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

So, God made all of that and put them into place, ordained them.

Psalm 8:4-6 (KJV) What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

Made him a little lower than the angels”, actually God.

God made time, so, man has dominion over time.  You were not meant to serve time.  Time was meant to serve you.

So, Joshua was fighting a battle in Joshua 10 and had not defeated his enemies and the sun was going down and Joshua spoke to the sun, “Sun, stand still,” and the moon in the valley of Ajalon.  He spoke to both the sun and the moon and the Bible said the sun stood still about a whole day until Joshua won the battle.

I am saying to you, look at the dominion that we have, the ability to tell time to fit into our plan instead of us being imprisoned by time and make us have to obey time.  It was never meant that way.  The only way it got that way is when mankind fell into sin.  Once he fell in the Garden, he became a prisoner of time.  But then God did something great, He gave him faith and faith is given to man to dominate time again.  So, the scripture tells us,

Amos 9:13 (MSG) “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, …

I think that is what it did with Peter in Luke 5.  Jesus got into Peter’s boat and taught the people.  When Jesus finished, he told Peter to let down his nets for a draught.  Peter told Jesus he had toiled all night and had caught nothing but at thy word I will let down the net.  When he did, he enclosed a great net of fish and the net break and Peter beckoned to his partners to come and help him and they came and filled both ships so that they began to sink.  When Peter saw this, he fell down at Jesus feet, saying, “Depart from me.  I am a sinful man, oh Lord.” For he was astonished and all that were with him at the draught of fishes which they had taken.

In that area, you weren’t supposed to fish and put out nets to catch fish in the daytime because the fish would see the net and swim off.  So, it wasn’t Peter’s time, but it doesn’t make any difference; because faith overrides the law of time.  So, Peter pulls in all these fish.  I believe Peter caught a year’s catch in an hour.  Now let’s put that with a verse.

Amos 9:13 (MSG) “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” GOD’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, …”

What people have done is they have sown seed, but they have not expected a right now return.  They never released it in faith.  They just dropped their seed in the offering bucket.

I am telling you, if you have a need, you have a right to sow a seed for that need and that need be met.  I don’t care if it is tonight or six months from now you can direct that harvest and when it will come.

I am telling you, use your authority.  You have a need, you sow a seed and expect God to manifest this verse, “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, …” because He put it in the Bible and if He didn’t want you to have it, He should have kept it out of the Bible because now it is in there and it’s time for you to get your harvest.  The wait is over.  Now give God praise for your right now harvest.

Psalm 126:5-6 (KJV) They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

I am glad to share this word with you because like me, many times you have sown precious financial seed. It seemed like a hard time to give but we did it anyway because we believed the Word of God, we knew we had a harvest on its way.

This scripture says that we will doubtless come again with joy, rejoicing.  There is supposed to be some joy in your giving.  You are not supposed to see yourself losing something.  You are supposed to see yourself increasing.

You see, God set this principle up so that He could care for His people independent of the system of the world.  So, the way you get increase is sow a seed and not work three jobs.  Sow a seed and God will make sure that you have more than enough.

Over in Philippians, Paul taught that to the Philippian church.

Philippians 4:15 (KJV) Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

Even in that day it was hard to receive.  For some reason people just wouldn’t receive.

In Jesus time, here’s what Jesus taught His disciples about giving,

Mark 10:28-30 (KJV) Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. 29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands (job), for my sake, and the gospel’s, 30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Jesus told us we are not going to just receive what we sowed but also a hundredfold now in this time.  You are going to receive it now in this time.  God wants us to get some thing right now in this time.

Many times, when we are giving, we are not receiving.  We need to stabilize our faith.  I mean, sow on purpose, give on purpose.  Truly the motive for giving is love but God wants to give something back to you.

Luke 6:38 (KJV) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.

This is important because that’s the way God uses us to build His Kingdom.  He uses our sowing and our reaping so we can have more then enough when there is a need in the Kingdom to build, help the poor and so forth then people won’t have a problem giving but they will have joy in their giving because they are going to have more than enough.

Genesis 26:1-3 (KJV) And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. 2 And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;

God said He would perform the oath He swore to Abraham their father.  God is talking about covenant He made with Abraham, Isaac’s father when God told Abraham,

Genesis 26:4 (KJV) And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

We go back to Genesis 12:2 where God spoke to their father Abraham and cut covenant with him of The Blessing.

Genesis 12:2-3 (KJV) And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

I want you to see this is a covenant between God and Abraham.  It’s very, very important you see this.

A covenant is like a contract.  It’s like a contract is between me and a person who is going to paint my house.  So, when they paint my house then I give them money.  If they don’t paint my house, I don’t give them any money. 

So, a contract is between two people and they sign an agreement and God said for His part He is going to bless Abraham, going to make his name great and he was going to be a blessing.  God told Abraham He was going to bless him and his seed in Genesis 17.  Let’s look at Genesis 26:12 and this is about Abraham’s seed, Isaac.  Now God made a covenant with him.  Let’s look and see where that covenant comes from.  It’s a covenant God was making with the earth and with Noah as the waters receded in the earth when it flooded the whole earth. 

Genesis 8:22 (KJV) While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.  

So, as long as we have a covenant going here with the earth, as long as the earth remains there is going to be seedtime and harvest.  I wanted you to see this.  I want you to get this because God is going to take care of you, I don’t care what is going to happen to this economy.  He is covenanted to take care of you and God keeps His covenant.  He said, “a covenant I will not break nor alter the things that have gone out of my mouth.”

Jeremiah 33:20 (KJV) Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, …

Now notice what He just did.  He said that as long as the earth remains there will be seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter and day and night.  As long as this is going on, my covenant is going to be in force.  He talks about the covenant of the day and the covenant of the night.  So, you can’t break it.  God keeps His covenant.

When God’s people were in Egypt, God said He remembered His covenant.  So, God is a covenant keeping God. God’s covenant is that He is going to care for His people.

If God doesn’t care for you, there’s only one left in the earth, Satan, that’s controlling all the natural realm.  God doesn’t want the devil to take care of you; but He knows that you are either going to have to get your provision from one system or the other.  He knows you can’t exist without provision.  So, He knows that if He doesn’t care for you, you will go to another system.  So, God is saying, I got you covered, and I am going to care for you. I don’t care what happens now.  I am going to take care of you.

So, in the midst of a famine, He told Isaac to not go down to Egypt.  Egypt represents the other system.  Isaac was to stay in this land of famine and do what God told him to do and God would take care of him.

Genesis 26:12 (KJV) Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.

There was famine in the land Isaac was in.  That’s why Isaac wanted to go to Egypt.  God told him not to go to Egypt.  God was saying, don’t care what the economy is like, I got your back.  Same with you wherever you live God has got your back.  God not only has your back; God is going to make you the head.  God is going to take that opportunity to make you the lender.  This is why the covenant is so exciting.

Genesis 26:13-14 (KJV) And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: 14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

Here is the Message Translation,

Genesis 26:12 (MSG) Isaac planted crops in that land and took in a huge harvest. GOD blessed him.

You need to get God’s idea of what huge is, because I think huge to us is not huge to God.  So, what we need to do is meditate that Word.  When we start meditating, the Word God will start painting us a picture inside of us of what He sees.  When He does that, you will start getting excited.

Isaac took in a huge harvest and God blessed him.

Genesis 26:13 (MSG) The man got richer and richer by the day until he was very wealthy.

Let’s look at Galatians 4:28, because what He did for Isaac, He is going to do for you.

Galatians 4:28 (KJV) Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

Just like He blessed Isaac, we are also the seed of Abraham.  So, are you ready to be blessed?

Now here’s the deal.  The covenant way to be blessed is by sowing your seed.  You can’t cry and make this work.  You can’t fast and make it work.  Fasting is good and sometimes crying alleviates a little emotion, but it won’t move the covenant.  You can’t confess and make it work.  I am talking about your provision.  The way you get God to release provision is through sowing a seed and that’s it.  Watch this.  Once you do, God moves.  You have just met your part of the requirement of that covenant.

Sometimes when we sow it is a precious seed because we don’t have much to sow but a sacrifice seed empowers a thing to happen right away.  Jesus was a sacrifice seed and it only took 3 days for Jesus to come up out of the grave.  In the Bible there was a woman who had one meal left for her and her son to eat, but she sowed it and fed the prophet.  She got a same day seed and a same day harvest.  The little boy in the New Testament had two fish and five loaves of bread.  He got his harvest back the same day.  They were all sacrifice seed.

I tell you this because your flesh will fight you to give your sacrifice seed because Satan had trained us on his system, and he doesn’t want to lose us.  He wants you to stay right there and suffer in the famine of this world but you can and will get out by sowing your seed, your precious seed.

You can sow a seed for tuition, a car or whatever you need.  If you have a need just sow a seed and write it down and let the devil see it.  Whatever it is let’s use this thing with skill because that’s what Jesus did.  He used the covenant with skill.  He never had a need He didn’t meet.

I declare this is the time right now for you to have your covenant of God increase as did Isaac in his land of famine.  Be obedient to sow your seed and see this covenant with God yield the harvest you need.

Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV) Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

This is a powerful truth we need to get revelation of in the Church.  From this Jesus began to teach that a person cannot serve two masters and then tells us to seek first the Kingdom and God’s righteousness and all you need will be added to you.

What is Jesus talking about laying up treasure in Heaven where it can’t be corrupted and stolen?  This is how the people of God can live independent of the world’s system that is in the earth; I call the Babylonian system.  This is going to be more important as we get closer to the end time that we learn how to live independent of that system; because if God needs the church to expand their ministry in the earth and the Church’s increase came from working a job and they had nothing left over after paying all the bills, etc. then the work of God won’t get done.  God wants us to live in abundance and independent of the world system and we do that by laying of treasures in Heaven for when we need them.

Matthew 6:19 (KJV) Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

God is not saying don’t have a savings account here, but He is saying that in this system when you lay it up it’s subject to things.  Once it comes into the world’s system it’s subject to things like taxes and taxes go up.

Matthew 6:20 (KJV) But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Jesus is talking about the bank of Heaven, that a person who is in the Kingdom can bank on another level.  When Jesus needed some tax money, He told Peter to go fishing and found it in the fish’s mouth.  Somehow it got there.  This treasure in Heaven is like a bank that when you need it, you can call for it without carrying it around with you.

Luke 12:31-34 (KJV) But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Let’s look at this same scripture in the New Living Translation.

Luke 12:31-33 (NLT2) Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need. 32 “So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom. 33 “Sell your possessions and give to those in need. This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven never get old or develop holes. Your treasure will be safe; no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it.

“No moth can destroy it.”  Let’s deal with that.  Years ago, you could go shopping with a hundred dollars and buy a suit, shoes, and more.  You could buy soda for five cents.  You could sell soda bottles back to the store.  Gas was twenty-nine cents a gallon and now gas can be over three dollars a gallon.  Notice it is the same dollar, but it is worth less.  A moth ate it.  This is what Jesus is talking about here.  He’s talking about inflation.  Gold is somewhat consistent unless some things happen, but they used to have the dollar backed by gold but now they make the gold separate from the dollar.  So, now what they do with dollars is they just print them.  You got to have some faith because as far as we know the dollar is a piece of paper and you got to have faith this paper will get you some clothes.  You got to trust this piece of paper.  If it has too big of numbers, they look at it real hard to see if it is a counterfeit and that’s because moths are out there.  So, if they need some more paper, they just print some more but every time they print more, what you got is worth less.  Every time they print more money, what you got in your pocket, moths just ate a piece of it.  So, we got to make it so that we can put it somewhere that inflation can’t touch it and when you need it, you can call for it.  Jesus needed tax money, He called for it.

There is no money in Heaven.  There is gold in Heaven, but money is here in the earth; so, you can have somebody bring you that.  When you sow seed then you are sending up a deposit to your heavenly account.  Just see a bank with your name on it.  Now if you got a bank on the earth you don’t just run up to the teller and tell her you want your money.  They are going to ask who you are.  In other words, there is a process of withdraw.  You can’t just run up to the teller and tell them you want your money even though your money is in the bank.  The reason why the teller can’t do that is because they set up rules so nobody can get your money.  So, the bank is not trying to keep you out of your money, but they are trying to keep the thief out of your money.

So, you need to go back in your checkbook for the last five years and see what you have laid up and start calling for it.  You might not understand this if you are not spiritually minded, but this is what these scriptures mean.

Luke 12:31-33 (AMP) Only aim at and strive for and seek His kingdom, and all these things shall be supplied to you also. 32 Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom! 33 Sell what you possess and give donations to the poor; provide yourselves with purses and handbags that do not grow old, an unfailing and inexhaustible treasure in the heavens, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.

So, if you made deposits, it’s time to make some withdraws.  Don’t keep trying to live off of your salary but take part of that and sow it so God can multiply it in the bank of Heaven.  In the world system you used to get three percent interest on a savings account but now you just get a fraction of interest because the moths just ate a piece of that, but God pays a hundredfold.
