Nation Shaking Money

I believe God wants all of his people to have plenty of money. Yes, I know that’s a very controversial statement, but that’s what I believe. I know there are many verses that people use to say otherwise, but I believe a careful examination shows those arguments to be erroneous. Rather, I believe that “the blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich” (Proverbs 10:22), “if you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land” (Isaiah 1:19), 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).

In fact, I believe that God wants us to have more than enough. I believe God wants us to be “enriched in every thing to all bountifulness” (2 Corinthians 9:11), that God “giveth us richly all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17) and that God “will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth” (Isaiah 58:14).

Now if that’s what God wants for me, I’m not going to argue. Rather, I’m going to find out how to obtain what God has for me. Of course many will disagree and say I’m after the world’s riches and all that. But that’s not true, I’m after God. In fact, I can say to God and man that I don’t care anything about the world’s riches and treasures. I care about the will of My Father. And His will is for me to have wealth.

Of course we can’t go through the entire subject of Biblical Economics in one post, but today I’m going to share some power principles that will build your faith, renew your mind, and help set you on the path towards obtaining your Heavenly inheritance, monetary style.

We all know Jesus said, “He who as ears to hear let him hear.” We can also agree that Jesus wasn’t talking about natural ears, everyone has those. He was talking about Spiritual ears. If you set your heart towards God, and ask Him for understanding and revelation of Biblical Economics, then you will receive. God has this wisdom at the ready and He wants you to have it. Really, setting your heart to understand, like Daniel did, is the key to receiving wisdom and revelation from God on any subject. You start where you are, and God will help you.

That’s what I did some years ago concerning Biblical Economics. I woke up early in the morning and told God, “Lord, I know that you want me to have abundant finances, but I have no idea how to get them.” Three hours later the phone rang. Completely out of the blue, my dad asked me to accompany him to Creflo Dollar’s Finance convention in New York. Hallelujah. If you want God’s Wisdom, God’s going to get it to you. God will move Heaven and Earth to help you understand. Trust Him. Just like He’ll give you money, He’ll give you knowledge. And let me finish by saying that I got one thing out of that conference – “If I’m going to prosper God’s way, then it’s going to be by seedtime and harvest.”

But let me go first to some more basic principles. I tell you right now that the wealth of the world is laid up for the righteous (Proverbs 13:22). There are some wicked people out there right now who think that they have tons of money. But they are just holding it for you and me. “The silver is mine, and the gold is Mine, saith the Lord of Hosts” (Haggai 2:8). All the world’s money is God’s. I believe that to begin understanding Biblical Economics, you must first understand that God has laid claim to all of the world’s money.

Now just sit back and meditate on that reality for a minute. If all the money belongs to God, then it doesn’t matter who holds it, or how it is transferred, God still owns it. That means God has an unlimited supply of money. If God transfers millions to put a preacher on TV, He still never relinquished ownership of that money. He can just transfer those millions again to do something else according to His will. Folks, I believe this is a powerful revelation, one that I don’t have time to detail here. “With God there are no opportunity costs.” God can afford anything and everything and He never sweats a dime. God has unlimited money. And if you will receive it, let me go on and show you how we do too.

You know that you have a relationship with God. If you believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead, and confess with your mouth that He is Lord, then you are saved (Romans 10:9-10). Moreover, “whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah) is born of God” (1 John 5:1). When you accepted Jesus as your savior then you became born of God. God’s seed is in you (1 John 3:9).

Now please don’t take the literal reality out of those words. You think those are just words. But no, that is the reality. You are literally born again of God’s Spirit, and God’s sperm gave birth to you. I know that sounds crass – but the Greek for “seed”, which is the word used in 1 John 3:9, is “sperma.” We are God’s biological children. This is not just some spiritual word discussion. My spirit man is God’s biological child. I am God’s son, and you, if you are saved, are God’s son or daughter.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” (Romans 8:14-17)

Now don’t just glance over that passage thinking you have read that a thousand times. Read it again in light of today’s study. You are God’s child. Therefore, along with Christ, you are God’s heir. If you are God’s heir, then you are a co-owner (with the other heirs) of everything that belongs to God.

Let me say that again. You are an owner of everything that belongs to God. You are not the sole owner, but you are an owner just the same. And you have considerable authority, rights and privileges in that capacity that you have probably never considered.

That has far reaching and astounding implications, but today we are talking about money. If God owns all the world’s money, and you are God’s beloved Child, His chosen heir, then you also own all the world’s money. And it’s time that we exercise our ownership.

I’m proud to say that God supplies all my needs. I live in a nice place and have nice things. I can boldly say in Christ that I sow bountifully and I reap bountifully. But I want more. Sure, I would love to have a few more security bucks in my account, and I am blessed in my storehouse, but I want more so that I can do more for God and see more of His will accomplished on this earth.

I have heard people talk about praying for a specific amount of money, and I’m fine with that, especially if you are talking about a personal need. But today I was praying for Kingdom building money. And my spirit just couldn’t settle on a specific number. Until finally it exploded within me, “God, I want NATION SHAKING MONEY.” “I want enough money to go into a Middle Eastern Country and flood it with Your Love and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I want enough money to go free every child slave on the planet and show them the freedom that comes from your Son Jesus. I want to go and shake the nations for You.”

God owns all the money, and as His legal heir so do I. I can call that money in now, because I understand the true New Testament purpose for abundant wealth is to show God’s Love to the world so that they will receive Jesus Christ. I can exercise my ownership and my authority, and nation shaking money is coming to me.

Now I know that we haven’t discussed all the mechanics of how you translate this reality into actual spendable dollars. But I assure you, it’s by faith. Faith is the force that translates God’s promises into your natural reality. So believe this word, receive it, confess it and stand on it. Then you must be led by the Spirit of God. That is the key to possessing, overcoming and truly triumphing in this world. Remember that the children of God are led by His Spirit.

Receive this word today. Begin believing God for nation shaking money. It’s going to take humility, it’s going to take trust, it’s going to take faith and love and many other spiritual forces. But glory to God, it can be had.

We are going to shake nations for the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts: According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.” (Haggai 2:4-9)
