This teaching is to expand your faith and build your faith in Kingdom abundance. 

John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

The thief, Satan is characterized as a thief.  Jesus told us He came to give us life and life more abundantly.

There are two kingdoms I am going to talk about, one, the Kingdom of God’s dear Son and the other is the kingdom of darkness.  We have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son.  There are two kingdoms. The kingdom of darkness is characterized by its leader and it is modeled after its king who is Satan.  The kingdom of darkness is known for its scarcity, lack and not enough. The Kingdom of God’s dear Son, the Kingdom of Jesus Christ is known for abundance. So, there is a kingdom of scarcity and a Kingdom of abundance.  Jesus came that we might have life more abundantly in the Kingdom of abundance.

Let’s see this Kingdom demonstrated.

Matthew 14:15-16 (KJV) And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

Matthew 14:16 (NLT2) But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them.”

Wow.  I wanted you to see something here.  This is a very, very, very important teaching in the Bible.

One of the biggest sources of pressure is money or the lack of money.  Lots of marriages get into trouble because of money and all kinds of problems are created by money because don’t have enough money, where is it going and so on. 

That’s not all, but the government who doesn’t make anything, wants what you got; with them enough is not enough and they want more and more because the pressure is on them.  So, the kingdom of darkness, the way a person gets theirs is to get it off of you.  It models itself after its king.  So, a lot of God’s people are in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son but still operating under that not enough kingdom and have not switched over.  One of the things Jesus is trying to do is He is trying to get them to switch and trying to get them to see the difference.

Let’s look at that scripture again in Matthew 14:16 because it really speaks to this whole thing.

Matthew 14:16 (NLT2) But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them.”

That is real pressure.  I am saying Jesus is not doing this to make them feel like He’s purposely putting them in a bad position because in the natural they don’t have it there.  They had money in the treasury but Judah is still stealing.  My point is God takes us from faith to faith.  God wants to stretch us by telling us to do something beyond what we can do but He doesn’t want us to beg because that’s the other kingdom, the kingdom of darkness but He wants us to use our faith just as He is doing here with His disciples to feed the people when they had no food. So, they could not naturally meet this but He is trying to show them there is plenty in Daddy’s house in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son.

Matthew 14:17-20 (KJV) And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. 18 He said, Bring them hither to me. 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

There was plenty.  Plenty.  They all had plenty to eat. So, one of the signs of the Kingdom of God is abundance and plenty and more than enough.

Matthew 14:20-21 (KJV) And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

There were maybe twenty or twenty-five thousand and Jesus fed them with two fish and five loaves.  What did the two fish and the five loaves represent?  Seed.

In Daddy’s house in the Kingdom of His dear Son, Daddy has got plenty, abundance, more than enough; but if you remember, going from Egypt to Canaan, He didn’t take them right to Canaan.  They came through the wilderness. What did He give them in the wilderness in terms of food?  Manna.  He gave it to them daily except He gave them double on the day before the Sabbath.  My point is, in the wilderness He wouldn’t let them stack it up.  See, it’s almost like He takes you through you trusting Him first and then in Canaan He’ll stack it up for you; because if He stacked it up too soon, they would start worshiping it. 

I want you to know that sometimes God pulls on you to take your next step by telling you to sow something you have never sown because He wants to do something, He’s never been able to do for you.  He might tell you to do something you don’t have money to do but you don’t say you don’t have money for it and you don’t beg for it for God just wants you to use your faith which is how we get things done in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son.  In the Kingdom you sow seeds if you have a need.  This is how I personally have gotten what I have today and the divine health I experience today and all the other benefits of the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. God is not going to stop with asking you to do more and more for the Kingdom.  God is not asking you to do something to put pressure on you, but He is doing it to show you who you are.  He’s trying to expose the real Sons of God.  He’s trying to let you see for once that you have the capacity with Him to feed twenty-five thousand people if He asks you to do it.  Stop looking at it like He is putting pressure you.  No!  You are putting pressure on the covenant; because He told you, “Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall men give into you bosom.”  There it is, the Kingdom of God’s dear Son with abundance, more than enough.

Jesus told us,

John 10:10 (KJV) …I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

You keep staying under money pressure and something eventually is going to give; because you were never meant to be under the pressure of money.  You start having health problems, something is going to give.  Start having marital problems, something is going to give because you are not meant to exist under the pressure of money.

Don’t say you are not making enough in your paycheck.  God wants you to live off of your giving.

Romans 14:17 (KJV) For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.  

Why joy?  Because you are not meant for pressure.  You are not meant to worry about one thing.  Just wave your hands like you don’t care.  Lift them up to Jesus like you don’t care.  Somebody tries to put pressure on you, just say, I don’t care.  I’m care free.  You are not going to put pressure on me.

One minister says when a big bill comes in the mail, he lifts it up to the Lord and says, “Jesus, you got mail.”

That’s what you can say, Jesus, you got mail.  That doesn’t mean you are negligent.  It means that God promised you that He would meet that need and if you have sown a seed then you got a right for a harvest for every need.
