Matthew 6:30-33 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. KJV


Jesus was teaching about two systems of finances in the earth.One is the world’s system where Adam fell to when he sinned which is based on fear, hard labor and survival.The other system, the Kingdom of God system, is based on faith and the “rest” of God.


When Adam sinned, for the first time ever man’s provisions were tied to his labor and he had to bear the weight of his own provision instead of God providing everything for him.Provision was Adam’s first concern and it only came through his hard labor, sweat and painful toil (Genesis 3:17-19).


The Kingdom of God is the system you entered into when you received Jesus as your Savior and it is the superior system of the two.


Colossians 1:13-14 [The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 In Whom we have our redemption through His blood, [which means] the forgiveness of our sins. AMP


We are born into a Kingdom that is “…not of this world” (John 18:36).This system is based on faith and revelation, versus fear and merely human logic.In the Kingdom of God system you don’t have to bear the weight of your own provision.God provides for us, totally, the same as He did for Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden before the fall.We can operate in this higher level based on Heaven’s (Kingdom) economy where there is an inexhaustible supply.It is described as what is laid up for us “…an unending, boundless, fathomless, incalculable and exhaustless supply (Ephesians 3:8, AMP).And all of this is accessible by faith.


There are no financial impossibilities in the Body of Christ.  Meditate that truth for a while.  There are no financial impossibilities in the Body of Christ.  Every child of God can tap into their supply merely by faith and acting on the laws of the Kingdom of God of sowing and reaping and receive whatever they lack.


You may ask, “You mean I don’t have to work anymore?”No, I didn’t say that!You do work, but it’s all on another level as an owner and as royalty, rather than a wanderer and a slave.If you work for someone or a company, be faithful in the position you have and God will promote you and you could end up owning everything. (Genesis 31:1)


Jesus taught His disciples how to live in this new kingdom, how to meet their needs without it being attached to hard labor.


John 6:5-7 Jesus looked up then, and seeing that a vast multitude was coming toward Him, He said to Philip, Where are we to buy bread, so that all these people may eat? 6 But He said this to prove (test) him, for He well knew what He was about to do. 7 Philip answered Him, Two hundred pennies’ (forty dollars) worth of bread is not enough that everyone may receive even a little. AMP


Two hundred penny worth is about 40 dollars worth at that time, equivalent to about eight month’s wages.The disciples were still thinking under the old, slow earth-cursed system where everything they have is tied to how long and hard they could work.



Notice what Jesus did.  He didn’t even look at the lack but instead He took the two fish and fives loaves, which was the “seed” given by the little boy, and giving thanks Jesus entered into that supernatural supply.The loaves and fish were multiplied until everyone’s needs were met in abundance.All of this happened independent of a job, overtime, or the type of occupation they held.In the middle of nowhere provisions were manifested.


I encourage you to seek the Kingdom of God for your provision and seek more understanding on how to put it into operation in your life.One excellent teacher on the Kingdom of God system is Bill Winston at http://www.bwm.org/.


If you have not entered into this Kingdom by the new birth of your spirit, just simply pray this prayer and mean it:Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that I was born into this world a sinner because of Adam, but I now believe that Jesus came into this world to shed His blood to wipe out sin and its guilt from my life, took the punishment for my sins on the cross and He rose again from the dead so that I could be justified in Your sight.I receive Jesus as the Savior for my sins, past, present, and future and I also receive Him as the Lord of my life.Come into my heart Lord Jesus.


Welcome to the family of God!Please let me know you prayed that prayer.And now I encourage you to live in the Kingdom and with the Kingdom’s provision.


Make this confession:  I am now in the Kingdom of God.  God Almighty is my source and not my paycheck.  I now live as a believer out of the Kingdom of God‘s system.  All of my needs are met according to God’s riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  I am now working the assignment God has given me and out of it comes my income.  I am blessed, enriched and abundantly supplied.


I have more confessions you can speak over your finances and health on my website, www.godswordalive.com.  There is also an article I have on my site, “Two Systems of Finance and Wealth.”

 

After you have read this blog, you need to listen to my audio, “Your Way Out of Being Provision Minded”.  You can download the PDF transcription to study with the audio.

 

Take a look at my E Book, “The Dynamics of Faith” and I know this book will help you see faith is not hard but it is easy.  We haven’t understood faith because we have tried to understand it with our head, our intellect and faith is of the heart.  I have written this book with points or bullets so that you can readily highlight all revelations that are new to you or stand out to you and also so that you can teach the material easily. I wrote this with points because I feel that publications with sentences, the revelation gets lost in the sentence.  You can check out a sample reading of  my E Book at http://www.godswordalive.com/article_pages/faith/faith_book_sample.html
