Matthew 6:24 (KJV) No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Increasing money without a Kingdom Model only increases demonic activity. Wherever there is wealth there will be demons in the shadows.
The church of Jesus Christ must structure and build accurate systems, processes, and protocols to help prepare and empower the saints for wealth creation and transfer.
Within the world, there are several systems that rule the mountain of finance.
- Pharaoh’s system enslaves people to work harder and to keep people enslaved in poverty.
- The Pharisaical system restricts people from entering into their destiny.
( Matthew 23:13)
- The Babylonian system puts man in bondage. It is a harlot system that puts you in debt and keeps you from occupying the mountain of finance.
For every demonic system, there is a kingdom model that is greater than the worldly systems. Naming, claiming and rebuking devils over your money will change nothing!
You need a new model; a new system is necessary to increase your wealth, so you can penetrate the world’s structures and recover their spoils.
Deuteronomy 8:17-18(KJV) And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Hebrews 10:38(KJV) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Finances follow faith; it’s not your faith following your finances. A Kingdom Cause (Vision) coupled with faith is the foundation for wealth creation.
Matthew 4:4(KJV) But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Most Christians go to work to pay for the bread on the table. That system will keep you in bondage.
We live by faith and Kingdom Cause.
Proverbs 29:18(KJV) Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Therefore, where there is vision people will prosper. A plan to advance the Kingdom and transform your world releases faith to create wealth. Vision is your greatest gift. It is greater than the gift of sight. It governs all the processes of your life. Vision gravitates resources into your life. It is a powerful, magnetic force. Once the vision is clear and then pursued, prosperity will match the provision. The poorest man on the planet is not a man with NO money, but a man with NO vision!
The Babylonian system is a demonic system of greed that desires to rule the seven heads or the seven mountains of our society (Business/Finance, Government, Religion, Family, Education, Media and Arts/Entertainment). The spirit of greed and consumption sits at the top of these mountains. It’s a harlot system that is drunk on the blood (life) of the saints; she draws the life out of you! This harlot system sits at the top of these spheres taking from you until you are indebted to her. The Babylonian system keeps the saints working harder. It is created so that you cannot succeed and prosper. It suppresses you from being the head and makes you the tail.
Four times in the Book of Revelation the Lord calls His saints to come up hither. The present call is for the saints to climb the seven spheres of society and penetrate them with the culture of Heaven.
Part of our kingly assignment at KCIA is to subdue mammon. To do this we must dismantle the spirit of greed and exchange it for the mantle of generosity. We must sell out to greed and buy into the Kingdom of God.
Proverbs 13:22(KJV) A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.
Proverbs 13:22(NLT) Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren, but the sinner’s wealth passes to the godly.
Ecclesiastes 2:26(NLT) God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. This, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind.
Ecclesiastes 2:26(MSG) God may give wisdom and knowledge and joy to his favorites, but sinners are assigned a life of hard labor and end up turning their wages over to God’s favorites. Nothing but smoke—and spitting into the wind.
That time has now come, that we must turn our inheritance into legacy, leaving a better world to the next generation. We cannot permit to live in a Babylonian system.
James 5:3(KJV) Your gold and silver is cankered, and the rest of them shall be a witness against you and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
James 5:3(AMP) Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. You have stored up your treasure in the last days [when it will do you no good].
The world is facilitating money until Kingdom men and women are prepared to handle it. Money always finds maturity. The world is holding on to the saints’ money until they are prepared and mature enough to handle it.
There are quantifiable ways to know if the Kingdom of God is in your heart.
HOW YOU HANDLE MONEY IS HOW GOD HANDLES YOU!!
- Gehazi determined the next move of God upon his life by how he handled money. He was in line for a double portion anointing from Elisha, but because of the love of money he forfeited his new mantle.
- Achan stole the gold and the silver (first fruits). Because of his disobedience, he aborted the new season of inheritance.
- Saul withheld what was the Lord’s after Israel defeated the Amalekites. And because of his rebellious nature, he had to surrender the Kingdom and throne to a shepherd boy. Saul mismanaged the spoils. Money determines the next season in your life.
- Judas, the Lord’s treasure for 3½ years, mishandled the Lord’s money because of a spirit of greed and never saw the apostolic movement.
- Ananias and Sapphira held back the tithe and did not transition into the new season. They lied to the Holy Ghost about their money and aborted their destiny.
NONE OF THESE FULFILLED THEIR DESTINY!
At KCIA our calling and assignment is more than spiritual, but also financial. We are called to subdue mammon together!
Prosperity is not accidental. Wealth creation is not magical; it is not a lottery, but a science. It is a precise application of facts and principles that produce a certain result. There are those who wait for wealth and those who create it. Choose well!
Deuteronomy 8:18(KJV) But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Innate in every believer is the power to create wealth. Please notice: He doesn’t give us wealth, but the power to create wealth.
What are the powers to create wealth? Vision, wisdom, character, skill, innovation, partnership, networking, excellence, stewardship, anointing, relationships, maturity, education, and the list goes on.
As you can see it is much more than money, but a host of power points.
Matthew 25 is the parable of the talents. In this parable, we see that everyone is given ability. Each man was given a measure of talents, one 5 another 2 and another 1. They were given talents based upon their ability to steward the talents. Presently you have all that He can trust you with. Your money measures you! The Lord won’t give you more than you can manage.
This parable reveals that in Christ’s Kingdom there are trading and investing principles.
We see that two of the servants increased what they were given. But the servant with one talent hoarded it and lost it! The principle is: God never blesses the lack but the increase! Increase your skill and ability! Increase in knowledge and wisdom! Increase your ability to manage and administrate resources! We must increase that which matters to God in the heavens so He can increase what matters to us in the earth!
Let’s look at Joseph. He had no wallet, but everywhere he landed he was blessed! God does not bless things, projects or ideas. He blesses people. God does not bless a business or a church, but the men and women in the business and church.
Joseph was the increase, the supply and the channel of wealth.
Joseph was God’s wallet! The Gospels say Jesus increased in wisdom, stature, and favor. Once again, God blesses the increase and not the lack; therefore, get the increase going!
Back to the parable of the talents, the man who hoarded his goods lost it all; the two men who increased their goods were entrusted with more. What you manage should have greater value after you steward it. Poor management will attract poverty, but good management will attract prosperity. The Lord always increases those who manage well. Good management is our Kingdom mandate. God only trusts His goods to faithful managers. Money is meant to come to you and if it’s running away from you it’s telling you, you can’t manage it.
We see after a long time the master came to his servants and settled up with them. Wealth creation is a process! There are no drive-through breakthroughs!! Preparation is never wasted.
The two faithful stewards were rewarded rulership and authority over cities. Managing wealth qualifies you for leadership. Every city has a destiny and it requires faithful stewards to facilitate Kingdom resources to fulfill their destiny!
God is not sparing resources for Kingdom advancement. A new level of urgency is upon Kingdom citizens to rise up and prepare to impact the infrastructure of our society with the Culture of Heaven and the Kingdom of our Christ. At KCIA our vision is to raise up a new breed of Kingdom entrepreneurs and wealth builders who are trained, empowered and equipped to become economic engines and custodians of wealth that will revitalize and reform communities. Indeed it’s a Divine Ordination and Mandate for such a time as this, for the saints to CREATE WEALTH….. DETERMINING DESTINY!!
