A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes merry;
But money answers everything.
Shouldn’t that have been ‘money answers SOME things’? That is how religion would have written it. There are many naïve preachers around the country who are holding their people in poverty and not releasing them into their prosperity.
There is a well-known saying that reads: Money cannot buy happiness. Really? If you were to win a million dollars, bought yourself the biggest diamond ring and went on trip around the world with your family, it would be hard to imagine depression lingering around you.
MONEY IS NOT EVIL – it is the intention of the bearer and money has a way of revealing your true intentions.
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Jesus is comparing God with mammon. The fact that Jesus is giving mammon such credibility to hold it up against God, Himself, tells us that mammon is very powerful.
It is not the money that is the god but mammon is the spirit that uses innate objects (like money) to get access into every facet of your life. The spirit of mammon is so powerful that it is the driving force behind multiple problems in society. The drug trade, sex trafficking, gambling, crime; all of these are connected to the love of money.
Mammon drives good people into an alteration of their mind. There is a seed that is planted from home that poisons your personality and life that causes you to have a slave mentality.
The world has been successful in convincing most Christians that they should be poor. The world will even go as far as to acclaim the missionaries who serve God abroad as long as the rest of you stay as SLAVES…
The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
Are you considered RICH? With liquid and solid assets but also being debt-free with surplus?
Are you a LENDER? With no need to borrow and plenty to lend to others?
Did you answer NO to each of these questions? Then you are a slave. You are legally bound. You are someone else’s property. They give commands and you must obey… But God wants you to prosper!
Your upbringing, your experiences and your surroundings cause your response to money. Unknowingly there is a seed planted into the mind of a child that makes them think they are not good enough to prosper, that they are expected to fail financially in life and that their failing financial status has been preset.
SLAVE = becoming victims of what their parents had or how they lived. It becomes a culture! A way of life!
BUT KINGDOM THINKING knows that prosperity flows when you are able to shift your slave mindset.
Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and shall prosper.
2 Chronicles 20:20
Preaching prospers you! Seeds of prosperity come from the pulpit! Your prosperity lies in the man of God.
GOD WANTS YOU TO PROSPER AND TO DO WELL! He has said it and He doesn’t need to ask if you think it’s true.
BELIEVE HIS PROPHETS… This is not just referring to believing what He says, but believing in Him, Himself. BELIEVE YOUR PROPHET, you may not understand but just believe.
And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be, when you go, that you shall not go empty-handed.
But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, namely, of he who dwells near her house, articles of silver, articles of gold and clothing; and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters. So you shall plunder the Egyptians.
The favor of the world is about to turn towards you and it’s going to be BIG, in the sense of the economy. The fat of the land of Egypt shall be yours and you will not go empty-handed (Aren’t you sick and tired of lack?)
And when the favor turns you, it is for the benefit of your children. It is the children that will suffer because of the mentality of their parents that reeks of poverty. Do not let your children adopt your broken mentality!
Speak into yourself
YOU ARE NOT POOR!
YOU ARE NOT A SLAVE!
YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL NOT BE IN POVERTY!
CHANGE YOUR MINDSET
