Big and Bold Part 6: Kingdom Finances (WTB)
God doesn’t want us to be chasers of finances and wealth in the world system and what we want to eat; what we want to drink; what we wear; where we must live. He wants us to be God-seekers, not possession chasers.
Go big and go bold, as a church, we are going big and bold together. We are going big in prayer; we are going big in sound and song; we’re going big in the Word and messages that God is giving us. As we are going big our faith is going to rise.
The Word and the message, this particular message is just what God wants us to declare for freedom and for progress to be made and for wholeness, even though this is a time when the world is in chaos. Even in these times.
It is the collective greatness that God is after. He is after a people that will walk by faith and believe Him and follow Him to experience all of His goodness.
So this abundant overflow that we are going to be experiencing is also in our maturity as the Body of Christ. Believers becoming stronger collectively, united as a body, bringing solutions to the earth, not the earth bringing solutions to us.
As long as we keep chasing after possessions and chasing after our own needs, then we put seeking God secondary.
We say: We put God first! We are not chasers of possessions and wealth!
The control that God exercises on the earth is through the church. It’s through the words that He speaks through His prophets, His apostles and His gifts that He placed on the earth. If God speaks these things in the Spirit and we do nothing about it, then God can’t override the church.
Because God has declared that this is the year for those that will be appointed and confined to a particular part of the body and be placed and set in there, those called out together to rule and reign with God – His legislative assembly with increased authority.
The only way we can have abundant overflow is by seeking Him and putting Him first place. If we want great victories and we want great prosperity, divine health, divine blessings that Brother Copeland has spoken of, it’s going to happen because you’re engaged with the local church. It’s going to happen because you are part of doing your part in the local church. The local church is the perfect environment . It is not your most convenient or comfortable place.
We say: Our gifting is doing the job that we need to do. We are applying, we are seeking God, we are bringing God’s Word, and we are feeding God’s people, and we are giving direction for God’s people. We are doing our job.
“Then He said to them, “Watch out and guard yourselves against every form of greed; for not even when one has an overflowing abundance does his life consist of nor is it derived from his possessions.” Then He told them a parable, saying, “There was a rich man whose land was very fertile and productive. And he began thinking to himself, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place [large enough in which] to store my crops?’ Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my storehouses and build larger ones, and I will store all my grain and my goods there. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many good things stored up, [enough] for many years; rest and relax, eat, drink and be merry (celebrate continually).” ’ But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own all the things you have prepared?’ So it is for the one who continues to store up and hoard possessions for himself, and is not rich [in his relationship] toward God.””
Luke 12:15-21 AMP
God wants you to have the righteous attitude in relation towards riches. To not be a fool! He wants you to see riches that He is going to give you, abundant supply that He is going to give you in light of Scripture, in light of His Word. He wants you to see it not as the world sees it but as He sees it.
This is the year of abundant overflow. This is the year of the local church. This is the year to go big and bold,” He’s actually speaking and saying, “I want you free from the gods of this world system. I want you free from the gods of this system, so that your freedom can actually cause God to pour His abundance, pour it in overflow, pour it into your life but if you’re not seeking Him.
We say: I’m seeking God and I am called on assignment to a people so my gifting must be in the local people that I’m called to.
“This is My great love, bringing these messages and these scriptures to give every single one of My sons the opportunity to invest into their eternity with Me,” says the Lord.
But it is serious because God does require a heart-shift and a mind-shift and a lifestyle shifting you in order for Him to be able to bring His abundant overflow to you.
We say: We will not miss this opportunity to invest into our eternity with God!
We will have a mind, heart and lifestyle shift!
