There are two realms or systems of finance and wealth. One of the systems is visible so that you can see it with your natural eyes and the other system is invisible.
In one of the systems everyone loses one time or another and some really lose a lot. In the other system no one loses if they stay in the system.
What are the systems we are referring to? The first one is the world’s system or the natural financial system. The other system is the Kingdom of God’s system and even though it is invisible to the naked eye, it is being revealed now in this time as never before.
In the world system there are jobs to make money or corporations or small businesses or home based business or Internet businesses. All of these are operated with some people making a lot of money or wealth and other positions pay just enough to get bills paid and then others struggle paying the bills because it is not enough.
In the Kingdom of God’s system, everyone has the same opportunities so even a janitor can own a jet and take off in it on the weekends.
We are all acquainted with the world system. We have all been involved with it and have had good or bad results with it. Sometimes there are not enough jobs, pay is cut, pensions are eliminated, people are laid off, people are fired, people loose their jobs because of downsizing or total elimination of jobs or company closing its doors. We hear of these things happening all of the time, bad news after bad news.
Jesus is the One Who unveiled the Kingdom of God’s system in His teachings in the Gospel. It is a system that is run with integrity, wisdom and respect for other people.
Jesus tells us we cannot serve and trust in God in the Kingdom of God system and at the same time serve and trust in the world's system or anything else that we can trust in but God. Here is the Kingdom of God system and here are the results of that system:
Matthew 6:24-34 No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise and be against the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions, or whatever is trusted in). 25 Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life? 28 And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin. 29 Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear? 32 For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all. 33 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. 34 So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble. AMP
Jesus tells us all of mankind will be serving a master in both systems. Also He tells us that we will have to choose between the two masters because we can’t serve them both at the same time or operate out of both systems at the same time. The master of the world’s system is satan and the master of the Kingdom of God is Jehovah God.
As a result of operating in the world system, Jesus shows the worries and the concerns of the people. They are perpetually uneasy, anxious, worried about what they are going to eat and drink and they are worried about having clothing.
Then Jesus exposes the Kingdom of God saying, look at the birds of the air and they don’t even sow seed nor reap but Father God keeps them fed. Mankind is worth more to God than the birds.
Jesus tells us worry and anxiety adds nothing to the height of our body or length of our life span. He even said that worrying about clothing doesn’t bring them to us.
Again He exposes the Kingdom of God telling us to look at the lilies of the field and how they grow and yet don’t do anything to work for their nourishment. Yet Solomon in all of his wealth was not clothed with such array as the beautiful lilies.
He even said that God takes care of the grass of the field that is green and then is burned up. Then Jesus said, God would clothe those who wouldn’t worry and lose faith.
Jesus tells us the solution to rid ourselves of all of this worry, anxiety for food, drink, clothing. He said the heathen, those without God, wish for, crave and diligently seek all of these things. But He said, our Father knows we need food, drink, and clothing and cares about those needs being met.
Jesus tells us to rid ourselves of all worry and anxiety by seeking first of all the Kingdom of God and God’s own way for our provision and then clothes, drink and food shall then be given to us. Then He tells us not to worry or be anxious about tomorrow because each day has its own trouble.
I have recently added some scriptures on “prosperity”, “love”, and “in Him” that can aid you in your confessions of God’s Word.
