The Lord once said to me, “Arnold, finances is the area with the least revelation of all within My body. Many quite don’t trust Me to reveal finances to them.”
….for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
I was once seated with a man of God, and being young at the moment, I desired to hear something that would spring me up to eternal life. But all this changed when I found out their vision, their vision was in material possession, something close to a plane, which I found to be bazaar at the moment if you ask me. Their concern was in worldly treasures, thinking to themselves that earthly treasures would be a sure sign to everyone else that the Lord was truly on their side. We all know the phrase, ‘God wants us to prosper!’
It also amazes me how I see many ministers so busy trying to invest for material gain. Believing in sacrifice when it comes to earthly and financial gain, but when it comes to actual spiritual matters, they are as dead as hell. You sit with someone then they tell you of how much they are looking into a deal that will facilitate the setting up of a building, but when you ask about the Lord and all that He is saying or doing, nothing comes out, no words that can spring up to eternal life.
All that I am sharing may sound a little bit harsh, but I believe that it is in Gods’ heart to reveal finances to all of us. Remember Cain, who committed the first murder when his offering wasn’t as pleasing to the Lord as Abel’s. Judas betraying Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Then the little boy with just 5 loaves and 2 fish offering it to Jesus to feed the whole congregation, the widow who fed Elijah from her last, still the poor widow in the temple whom Jesus commended for having given more than all the other rich men who gave portions of what they had in the temple; she gave all that she had, she gave out of her poverty and she gave of all that she had.
Our finances have never been dependent on our physical human efforts, rather, Christ died so that we no longer live for ourselves but for God, this as well includes our finances.
God desires to show us mercy and grace in our finances. He desires to get many out of debts, to get many to stop being dependent on their jobs, to get many cease to be dependent on fellow men, to get many from thinking that they can just secure their finances by just paying tithes yet their hearts aren’t secure in Him. When the enemy is busy trying to kill your soul, you are then busy trying to secure your finances. The Lord desires to reveal Himself to us.
THERE ARE THREE REASONS WHY I FELT DADDY LEADING ME TO EXPOUND ON THIS
- ….for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light, Luke 16:8b.
- For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10
- Once you learn the truth of God on finances, you will flourish in every area of your life.
Tomorrow I’ll continue from this, and I know we are all gonna be blessed. Blessed times.
