COUNSELS ON KINGDOM WEALTH

In important court cases, attorneys will sometimes have an expert witness. This is someone who has a special area of expertise which will lend credibility to the case the attorney is trying to present. Many courtroom dramas use the expert witness testimony for dramatic effect during the scripted courtroom scene.

Someone may be contesting a will and the heir to the estate must now prove himself. The case seems to be lost when suddenly the expert witness is sworn in. He testifies to a little known fact that turns the tide for the entire case. His credentials have made him the final word. His evidence is beyond being contested. The heir is proven. When the world tries to take away our holy inheritance, God sends His own expert witness, the Spirit Himself. The Spirit steps in and testifies that we are wholly the children of God. His Word proves that we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. We are vindicated. Our future is secure.
Reconstruction is a very necessary part of fulfilling the God-purpose in our lives. At the point of getting saved or being born again, Jesus comes into our lives and takes up residence into our spirit man. The old order and way of thinking must change. When we think about reconstructing something, we get the picture of an already present structure- let's take for example a house that has been abandoned. It may look like a house, but because of neglect or lack of permanent occupants, there may be cracks and holes that developed, there may be rodents and water leaks that leave stains on the floor and walls.

The good news is that someone came along, saw the house, thought to themselves that there is potential for this house and that, it can become livable again. That person did not see the present state but chose to look at what could be.

My friends, our bodies are the house; our soul is the inside of the house; and our spirit is where the Holy Spirit takes up residence. Jesus came along and saw what we could be like if he was to move into our lives. He saw the potential of us becoming clean and healthy once he moved into our spirits, and he also brought with him every single tool and resource necessary for us to clean up the rest of our house (soul).

In reality, the true source of many of our problems as believers is the fact that we are putting on pretty coats of paint on the outside, trying to convince everyone else that we have it all together. Our thought life is so powerful that it could decide our present disposition in life and also determine the direction of our future. Pondering the power of our thought life should cause us to want to reconstruct our souls. We all have a soul, but it is not enough to have a soul; as believers we should desire a prosperous soul, after all, the bible tells us that we are what we think upon, " For as he thinks in his heart, so is he." (Proverbs 23:7) and there is only one thing that can truly reconstruct the thought life and that is the word of God!

How do we change our thought patterns? When we speak about changing our minds, it carries with it the connotation of something existing permanently, but the content changes. For example, your skull contains your brain and your brain contains your thoughts. You cannot go to the store and buy a new skull with a new brain; you take the permanent skull and brain and you change the thought patterns that are there. This term is also called repentance.

Repent means to perceive afterwards; hence, it signifies to change one’s mind or purpose, and it always involves a change for the better. From the definition of repentance we can now fully understand Rom 12:2 – renewing the mind for the better life God originally had for us.

Many times believers walk away disappointed and frustrated because they want things done instantly. It is almost as if we live in the microwave age, and everything must happen quickly and instantly or else it is not God. On the contrary, God is here to stay in our lives, and renewing our minds involves building, setting foundation, and then building layer upon layer that causes what we build to remain.
You will have to disconnect from doing things the old way – according to the world system . If we are going to have a prosperous mind we have to change our habits. Making a few adjustments would only benefit us in the long run. It is the bigger picture that enables us to embrace the changes that need to be implemented because we are now working toward fulfilling the God-purpose for our lives.

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God (2 Corinthians 3:5). The word, “sufficiency” in our opening verse is the Greek, “Hikanotes,” and it means competence; our competence is of God. The next verse continues, “Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament…” (2 Corinthians 3:6). Now, this couldn’t only be referring to Paul, Silas or Timothy, because they’ve all gone to heaven, but God’sWord lives on, and is applicable to us today. Thus, you can personalize it and say, “My competence is of God, who has made me an able minister of the New Testament.” Do you know what this means?

It means you’re competent to do everything that God has called you to do as it pertains to the Gospel of Jesus Christ! You’re effective in the Gospel by His ability. If any assignment is given to you, don’t say, “I. don’t know whether or not I can do it,” because you sure can! Of course, of your own self—by your own human ability and ingenuity—you may not be able to execute it; but by the Holy Ghost, you can! Like Paul, you can do all things by the supernatural ability of Christ that’s at work in you (Philippians 4:13).

Refuse to be limited by your physical ability; your potentials are limitless. Recall the words of the Apostle Paul in Colossians 1:29; he was conscious of the might or energy of Christ at work in him, and affirmed accordingly. He said, “Whereunto I also labour striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.”

Then in Acts 1:8, we read the words of Jesus. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you….” The Greek word for “power”here is “dunamis”; the dynamic ability to effect changes. It refers to might, strength, efficiency, miracle-working ability; this is what you received when the Holy Spirit came to live in you.

Thus, you can do supernatural things, and you can make supernatural things happen by the power of God’s Spirit. You’ve been empowered for the transcendent life.

Philippians 4:13; I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Ephesians 3:14‭-‬16; For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

Philippians 2:13;  For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Proverbs 9:8-12; 8 Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you; rebuke the wise and they will love you. 9 Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 11 For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. 12 If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.

Here comes four counsels for kingdom wealth:-

  • Increase your income
Two ways to increase your income are to get more jobs or increase the streams of inflow into your life. When the increase of God begins to come, don’t spend your increase; use your increase to clear your debt because existing debt will function like a leaking hole that doesn’t let you plan. Don’t buy anything on credit; but if ever, let it be something tangible that will generate income later.

  • Don’t be an executive in your approach to finances
Beware of an executive spirit. Receiving an official car at work shouldn’t make you assume you have a car. Don’t take a loan to keep up an executive appearance. To be genuinely wealthy, you need to be an entrepreneur. Don’t fall prey to salespeople who say “buy it now and pay at the end of the month,” they will sabotage your financial planning and invite the spirit of debt.








  • Reduce your spending
When you are coming out of debt, first stop all spending and then reduce spending when you have cleared the debt. Practice the law of accumulation ‘little by little’, until you get there.

  • Prosper at your level.
Your greatest problem starts when you are trying to prosper at another person’s level. Find your financial level and prosper there. There is a time when you shouldn’t feel embarrassed wearing fairly-used clothing or accepting fairly-used furniture from good relatives that you can vouch for their spiritual leanings.

Not that alone, there are two sides to righteous, kingdom wealth namely; the spiritual and the natural side. Every Christian that wants to succeed financially must work both sides equally well.









On the spiritual side you find;
  • Seed and sowing

  • The anointing

  • The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the highest form of wealth. If you build a positive relationship with the Holy Spirit, He will begin to guide you and direct you to the things that are peculiar to you for you to get wealthy.

On the physical side you find;
  • The best natural wisdom
This will come either by your personal study or when you employ somebody. However, good books that cut the Holy Spirit out of your wealth strategy will get you into trouble. Once the Holy Ghost has led you into where God has reserved wealth for you, then make use of all the information available in your generation.

  • Good relationships
Build good relationships because positive relationships will enhance your future financially, spiritually and in every other way.








  • Work.  Work. Work
Don’t be lazy because the hand of the diligent will always bear rule.

  • Establish a savings scheme
The spirit of poverty works with how much you spend while the spirit of prosperity works with how much you save. When you spend money daily without saving money daily, the spirit of poverty is already ahead in operation in your affairs. To break that yoke, you must save as you spend, either by changing how you spend or how you save.

You won’t know how heavy the rainfall is unless you have a tank to trap the rain. In the same vein, without a savings account, you won’t know how much God has blessed you. The devil steals your harvest when you say there’s not enough to save. Here are a few important savings accounts you should have:

1. Targeted savings account: Here, you are denying yourself for a particular reason. A good target is saving towards building your house. Graduates can save towards professional examinations.

2. Rainy day account: With this account, you are to have a savings balance equal to 6 months’ worth of your current salary if anything tampers with your work.

3. Joseph’s account: God showed me the Joseph’s account in 1992; save 20 percent of your earnings and you don’t touch it for 7 years. If you are faithful with your Joseph account, God can bring an opportunity for you to buy a house worth 7 million naira for 2 million.

4. Gathering the crumbs account: All those small lose change hanging around in your house. Gather the crumbs because there is plenty of wealth in fragments.

5. Kids Savings Scheme: This is to activate the operation of the spirit of prosperity upon your children by getting them involved in saving. Motivate them by promising to double every naira they save. Teach them to read their Bible when they wake up in the morning and meditate on their Bible and check their passbook before bed at night.
For the earth yields crops by itself. Mark 4:28. We need to keep praying and planting the seed of the Word in the lives of people so that it may bear fruit one day. You think your word or deed is very small, that what you say will hardly count at all; but God can take the seed that you have sown and nourish it until it's fully grown. We sow the seed. God produces the harvest. It is good to work for God yet it is awesome to walk with him because many work(s) to be seen by men while a walk with God makes you an angel among men.

One day can change everything with the supernatural hand of God! Put your trust in Him! God is for you!! He came to give you an abundant life! A wall is not always to keep you out but to show how bad you want something and how BIG your God is! That wall is coming down!When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, they can no longer hurt you

Get ready to testify...Your family, your friends, your enemies and all those in “your world” are about to see the evidence of the goodness of God! Follow your faith and not your fears! When God decides to bless you no man can stop it! He will cause situations and circumstances to come together to favor you!


DECLARATION

He will usher your life to higher ground and never come down again.Every mountain standing between you and the fulfilment of your God -given dreams shall become plain this week.

Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.16:5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.16:6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.16:7 When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.16:9 A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.16:8 Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.

PRAYER POINTS

Dear Father, thank you for the divine energy, might, strength, efficiency and miracle-working ability you’ve deposited in my spirit, to effect changes and live the supernatural life every day.

Lord, deliver me from every form of financial indiscipline making me to despise the truths about saving in Jesus’ name, Amen!
