Online Personal Prophecy Ensure Financial Freedom
Have you been searching for a financial breakthrough, then you need an online personal prophecy. Your online personal Prophecy can give you the financial breakthrough of what you and your family need.
Perhaps you have seen enticing advertisements in your newspaper or on television promising you financial independence. What a wonderful prospect! Although God has blessed many of His children with wealth, most of us can only dream about financial independence. Financial freedom, however, is for every Christian steward who faithfully follows God’s plan for giving, saving and spending. Financial freedom means having enough to provide adequately for your household and to give generously and joyfully to God’s work. God wants you to be financially free so you can put Him first in your life and be sensitive to His voice, ready to follow Him whenever — and wherever — He leads. Let me share with you five specific things you can do to ensure financial freedom for you and your family: 1. Know and Obey God’s Will for Investing Your Money God’s will about money is not a mystery. Biblical principles of stewardship give you a clear revelation of His plan. By basing your decisions on these precepts, you will experience lasting financial freedom. Every investment of your time, talents and treasure, unless otherwise directed by the Holy Spirit, should be determined by the “sound mind” principle which I mentioned earlier. Additionally, you should seek the wise counsel of godly people who have successfully applied biblical principles in their financial giving. 2. Breathe Financially True financial freedom requires spiritual health. For many years, I have taught the principle of “Spiritual Breathing.” In Spiritual Breathing, I explain, you exhale the impurities of sin by confession. The Bible promises that if you confess your sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive you and to purify you from all unrighteousness. To confess your sins is to agree with God about your sins. This means you agree that your sins are wrong and grievous to God; you recognize that God has already forgiven your sins through Christ’s death and the shedding of His blood on the cross; and you repent — change your attitude: Through the strength of the Holy Spirit, you turn from your sins and change your conduct. Then, I explain, you inhale the purity of God’s righteousness by claiming the fullness of His Spirit by faith on the basis of God’s command in Ephesians 5:18 and His promise in 1 John 5:14,15. In this way you invite Him to direct, control and empower your life. As Spiritual Breathing sustains your spiritual health, so “Financial Breathing” preserves your financial freedom and well-being. 3. Develop a Financial Plan A written financial plan gives you the framework for your economic decisions and enables you to measure your progress toward financial freedom. Developing a plan is not difficult. The family budget serves as a starting point. Easily identifying your needs, wants and desires, the plan provides a vehicle for setting priorities and forming strategic short-range and long-range goals to govern your spending. Furthermore, the budget enables you to think before you buy, thus keeping your spending on target, enabling you to live modestly and effectively manage credit.
4. Master Your Credit
Good stewardship requires that you live modestly and effectively manage credit. Paul admonishes, “Pay all your debts except the debt of love for others.” Many Christian leaders take this to mean that one should never be in debt for anything. I disagree. A young couple will frequently incur monthly obligations while establishing their home. Throughout life the purchase of large dollar items — such as a house or a car — usually requires indebtedness. The real danger does not lie in the provision of needs, but in self-indulgence, poor planning, lack of discipline, and the passion to satisfy one’s greed. Satan aims to drive Christians into debt so he can drain them with worry or despair and keep them spiritually impotent and fruitless. For this reason, a faithful steward will never obligate himself to the place where he cannot, through control of his income, make a reasonable payout.
5. Invest in God’s Kingdom
Every Christian should consider how he can give to help win and disciple the largest possible number of people for Christ. But don’t be discouraged if you do not have large financial resources to give. God measures the value of your gift by the total of your resources. As with the widow who gave her two mites, He is pleased and honored when you give sacrificially and will supernaturally multiply your gifts to meet your needs as well as the needs of others. God also is pleased when you give generously out of the abundance He has given you. You can use these resources to give strategically to help take the message of Jesus Christ to millions who have not yet received Him. Let me suggest giving a minimum of 10 percent of your income to the work of the Lord as a realistic starting point for a steward who wants to honor and glorify God with the resources with which he has been entrusted. The practice of giving 10 percent is called “tithing,” and is common among many Christians today as a systematic method for giving. The word tithe itself comes from an Old English term simply meaning a tenthand usually refers to giving 10 percent of one’s income or resources to the kingdom of God. Tithing, or proportional giving of even more, should play a critical role in our stewardship as we seek to obey our Lord’s command to help fulfill the Great Commission. God established the tithe during the Mosaic period of the Old Testament. Many argue against tithing for today on the grounds we are no longer under the law which required tithing but now live by grace. They assert that, if under law the Israelites gave at least a tenth, under grace we should surely do more as God prospers us. On this basis, many advocate proportional giving, but not necessarily a tenth. I agree. For most people, however, a tenth is a good starting point.
Let me illustrate. A friend who was just beginning to experience the reality of his salvation asked his Master Prophet E. Bernard if God would be satisfied with 5 percent of his income instead of 10 percent. The pastor replied, “Would you be satisfied with 50 percent of you salvation and all the other blessing which God has available for you?” From my perspective, it is unthinkable from the standing point of Christ’s great sacrifice on the cross that anyone would give less under grace than the Jews gave under law. So in discussing the matter of tithing, I am referring to giving at least a tenth of your income or resources to God’s work, not as a matter of law, but as an expression of grace. The provision of God under grace is based on the principle of the harvest: What we sow we will reap. The apostle Paul says, “If you give little, you will get little. A farmer who plants just a few seeds will get only a small crop, but if he plants much, he will reap much.” Giving too little to the work of the Lord would amount to “robbing God” just as much today as it did in Malachi’s time. To the children of Israel, the Lord said: “Will a man rob God? Surely not! And yet you have…robbed me of the tithes and offerings due to me. And so the awesome curse of God is cursing you, for your whole nation has been robbing me. “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so that here will be food enough in my Temple; if you do, I will open up the windows of heaven for you and pour out a blessing so great you won’t have room enough to take it in!” Although Christ has “redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us,” God has His ways of chastening us for lack of giving or rewarding us for faithfulness in stewardship. Consider what He said to the leaders of Judah through the prophet Haggai: “Why is everyone saying it is not the right time for rebuilding my Temple?” asks the Lord. His reply to them is this: “Is it then the right time for you to live in luxurious home, when the Temple lies in ruins? Look at the result: You plant much but harvest little.” You have scarcely enough to eat or drink, and not enough clothes to keep you warm. Your income disappears, as though you were putting it into pockets filled with holes!” Have you ever had that feeling? You seem to be on a financial treadmill. You are working harder, yet getting farther behind. Your checking account seems to have sprung a leak. God has not changed. In the time of Haggai, He considered it a top priority to reestablish His physical presence among the people of earth by having the people of Israel rebuild His Temple in Jerusalem. In the Church Age in which we live, God’s physical presence among mankind is spread as His Church grows and spreads. How does this occur? By evangelism and discipleship, by helping to fulfill the Great Commission in obedience to our Lord’s command. Start gaining more knowledge about God’s Kingdom and understand His design in your life. When you get your Free Written Prophecies you will be capable of living a life of abundance. Finally get your to know God’s Kingdom is truly by speaking to Master Prophet E. Bernard.
