I am excited to say your address is about to change today! You are going into the land The Lord your God has promised you and He said, "He would increase you and prosper the work of our hands." Prosperity and increase are not the same thing. Prosperity is a state of uninterrupted peace, soundness, and economic well-being while you obtain the promise. It is a noun and therefore a thing. Increase on the other hand is a verb, it is what we call an action word. It is supernatural and exponential advancement and growth. It is your promise on the move! It is giving you land you did not own and houses you did not build. Because nothing in the material realm leaves the Earth, The sovereign Lord is shifting possessions from the hands of the wicked into the hands of the righteous. It does not matter how long they had it. Proverbs 13:22 says, “A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.”
But before you go in, you have to get our houses in order. You are poised to move into a place of significant increase and continuous prosperity if you obey what the Lord has said. There are things the Lord hates and forbids; Deuteronomy 18: 9-13 (MSG) says,
When you enter the land that God, your God, is giving you, don’t take on the abominable ways of life of the nations there. Don’t you dare sacrifice your son or daughter in the fire. Don’t practice divination, sorcery, fortunetelling, witchery, casting spells, holding séances, or channeling with the dead. People who do these things are an abomination to God. It’s because of just such abominable practices that God, your God, is driving these nations out before you. Be completely loyal to God, your God. These nations that you’re about to run out of the country consort with sorcerers and witches. But not you. God, your God, forbids it.
For many of you, it seems like it has been taking a long time coupled with extensive warfare. But the Lord says, “I took you the long way!” Deuteronomy 8:2 says, “Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.
Because you obeyed, the Lord is shifting your economy! You are not to rely on this world system that is fading away. Jesus came in and introduced a new system called the Kingdom of God. It was established to supply every need independent of what is happening in this Earthly economy. Stop being perpetually uneasy, anxious, frightened, and worried about your life. Matthew 6:26 (NIV) says, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Bill Winston said, “No longer do you have to bear the weight of your own provision. You don’t have to earn a living. Your labor is not in overtime. It’s in the word of God. Everything changed when the Kingdom came, and the Kingdom is now inside of you. You are your own bank.”
There is no inflation in the Kingdom of God, there is no depreciation in the Kingdom of God and there is no lack in the Kingdom of God. Your wealth does not lose value. The Lord of Heaven’s army announces in Haggai 2:8, “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine…. God has already released increase, favor, resources, connections, promotions, and advancement into your life. You just have to believe it. Your words reveal what you believe. 2 Corinthians 4:13 (NASB) says, “But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I believed, therefore I spoke," We also believe, therefore also we speak; If you believe, you will therefore speak."
As you walk into your abundant place …. Be clear that you are not part of this economy. The government may be going bankrupt, but the Kingdom of God is still flourishing. The Lord’s command to you this day is, (Deuteronomy 28:8) “Whatever you put your hands to I will prosper and faith speaks what it believes!
