Money and Lust

Linda,

good morning and God bless you. Let me give you some of what I’ve got in my spirit for you. So set your heart to receive and take all this in, and it’ll help you. It will not solve your problem[s], it will only help you come further into the Kingdom, which is what you need most – and that only if you obey it. Sis, this entire world system with all it’s collection of revenue, lending money at interest, guarding your investment, and maximizing profit – is on it’s way out. I mean really on it’s way out, right now, in front of your very eyes. It is collapsing, and it will never recover. With every bit of it being foretold in the Bible thousands of years ago. It’s happening right now. All of your whole life long, you’ve been much more a part of this system than you’ve ever been of God’s Kingdom, which is His system. Now you’ve come further [in] than ever before, and I’m glad about it. But you have so much further to go. It’s the further that I’m talking about now.

There are many gods in the world that compete with our affection, attention, and dedication to the One and only true God. One of mine [for years] has been Lust. Now this god [Lust] will not exist in the world to come, which is why I quit investing in it years ago. I used to use the bars as my format for getting laid. There was a social, cultural, and entertainment element to it all, but [my] main purpose in using it was to get this thing I wanted. During the time I was serving this other god while believing in the God of all creation, I was an upstanding individual, conservative, religious, and all who knew me would even say moral. I was a moral man. But I was not a man of Faith. I was still too attached to this other system. God blessed me as much as He could, as much as my obedience allowed. But you see [and you must see], it cannot be Faith unless it is based on something God said.

In a few more months it will have been 10 years since I set foot in one of those bars, and quit investing in that system. Now this has nothing to do mind you with that other god speaking to me, sometimes daily. And there are times when it is very hard because I served him so well for so long. But I [did] quit serving him and trying to get something for myself, and began to only serve the One who had already gotten everything for me, and was waiting very patiently – to give it to me. Even though I was teaching the Bible while I was a servant of sin, I was never truly Blessed. I lived in partial blessing, because of my partial obedience. And got an occasional breakthrough, because thats all my spiritual commitment could produce. Now I live in constant Victory, and have gotten better and better as I’ve served Him with more and more of myself.

You are the exact same way with money that I was with lust. The business world is your bar and your format for getting what you want. Although you have other gods – this [making of money] is the one you’ve served with the greatest commitment and had the most success. It is part of the fallen nature to serve what we succeed at. The system of Commerce and Trade is the Babylonian System that is falling apart, right now in front of the whole world. The bottom line of the entire business world is of course, to make money – not obey God. As a follower of Christ, you’ve been commanded to come out of that system and come into His. Which of course you have not done.

You make all of your decisions based on money, you are Led by finances. What does the Scripture say, “how hard it is for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!” [Mark 10: 24 in the King James]. He did not say those who had money, He said those who trust money. Your trusting in money has stopped you from coming into the Kingdom – it is a Spiritual Law. It’s not about whether you think that you think that way, you’re not in charge like that. Your behavior simply exposes which spirits or Laws are running you. It is that way for all of us. Making a god out of money [or anything] doesn’t mean you bow down to it – it means your trust is in it. Because you trust it. Well you cannot trust money and trust God. That is another Law. People try to all the time, you’ve tried for years. But that will not stop the Law from coming true for you, or anyone else. Trust is just another word for Faith. It is the word used in the Jewish New Testament instead of Faith. Faith is just the opposite of trusting money. Faith does not have anything but the Word it got from God. Faith just goes and the money shows. Whatever you put your Faith in is your god.

I watch news broadcast from Britain and Germany regularly, and they both cover China, India and Russia in ways that the U.S. does not, and these things are happening all over the world. Just like the Bible said. You, like all business people, have invested [trusted] far too much in this system, and it is now collapsing [for everybody] – and you’re losing your Investment. It is the place you’ve sown the majority of your time, effort and ability, and if you are confused about that – all you have to do is count the hours, the days, the weeks, months and years. And it becomes immediately apparent. Yes you are an upstanding woman, conservative, religious, and even moral, just as I was. But you are not a woman of Faith. And there is a fake faith that charismatic believers have excelled at. It is called presumption, and it is a type of pride.

Fake faith is not based on anything God said. It’s just claiming the Blessing without paying the Obedience. Charismatics are full of the talk, but few have the walk. They are famous for it. You’ve brought a little of God’s Things into your work world a few times, but you brought much more of your business training into your religion on a regular basis. That’s why that singles ministry failed – there was no Faith in it. A religious man asked you to do it because you are religious yourself, but mostly because I wouldn’t do it. So a group of religious people got together for some cheerleading and hoopla to launch this great idea they had – and the prophet left the building. I told you I couldn’t be a part of that, remember. You wanted me to stay [after church] and I couldn’t. I wasn’t being disagreeable with Donnie or you – God had not told me to. So I didn’t have any Faith to do it, and I’m not religious at all, so he couldn’t hook me with that pitch. It would have failed if I had done it without Faith. You do not get faith from anything men say. It comes only by the Word of God from those who are Anointed to say it. I don’t listen to mens ideas, I listen for God’s anointing, remember.

That is what prophets do, and as a prophet who outranked everybody there, I could not stay or they would have thought it was okay. They would think it had the backing of the Lord. Faith begins where the will of God is known, remember. For it to be faith, you have to actually be able to say what God told you that gave you the Faith. Real faith is not something you pretend, or put on like play acting as a child. It is something that is in your spirit based on something God told you. It has to be based on something, it cannot be based on nothing. If it is based on nothing then it’s fake faith. A lot of what the church world calls faith is just sales pitch, cheer leading, self motivation, pushiness, or trying to will your plan into existence. For most of the church, that’s all the faith they know. That is not Faith at all.

Your business may very well fail sis. But you won’t fail, if you stay close to God. And as someone who represents the system that is coming, the one replacing the system this whole non faith world lives on – I’m not even remotely concerned about your business failing or succeeding. But only that you come into the Kingdom, and get as far in as you can before He gets back. At which point no one can come in any further than they are. It’s time for you to stack all your chips on the Lord’s return and live like you believed it, not on trying to make something happen. Those days are over! Now, of course – you’re out of chips. Your god is almost dead, he was worn out before you were ever born. Don’t try to bring him back to life. Let the God of Heaven have His way – and He will bring you into His life. A place where no one will even need money, but you will have to have Faith. And it can only be in one thing. Your faith has to be in Him.

have a great day

Brother Greg

 

 

Letter to our dear Brother friend and young fellow minister in Texas birthed under the anointing God gave us, who received what seemed like a substantial gift from one source and a seemingly significant promise from another source, but needed some clarity and wisdom on both . .

 

My dear son,

You are absolutely right – The Lord has Blessed you greatly! We are glad about it and celebrate it with you 🙂. Especially the most generous gift of all the fine clothes. Had they come on their own the gift would be without suspicion, but with the gift coming from a person working at the same company as the person offering the job, and both coming in at the same time – makes it all more than a little suspect. Especially if the new job requires you to wear the new clothes he just gave you, my what a coincidence.

Concerning the job offers, let me add to you by helping you see some things, as that’s what seers do. Generally speaking there are three different things that people get paid for in working for an honest living. Most get paid for their labor, many get paid for a skill or a particular ability, and at the top are some who get paid for their knowledge.

Though I have gotten paid for all three, it has mostly been the last two. When I did stock and cashier at a grocery store as a teenager that was labor, just as it was when I was a diver in the Navy. Though there is arguably a specialized skill set attached to many jobs in the Armed Forces, when you serve in the military they own you by contract and you are being paid for serving as a soldier or a sailor. They do give special pay for special skills but the amount is nominal, and again your paycheck is for being in the military, which makes it labor.

When a former navy diver and buddy of mine hired me for a salvage job as a diver at 100 dollars an hour for 23 hours when we were both civilians, the 2300 dollars I made for that one job was for a specialized skill or ability. When paid 100 dollars an hour just for phone consultations as a supplement expert (nutritionist), that was for my knowledge. We live in a very shallow selfish and materialistic world, as you well know. Because you are a good looking guy you will get offered certain kinds of jobs just because of your looks.

Most of the offers will be for things that diminish or demean you, because that’s what those without beauty do to those who have it, in the context we’re speaking about. There is an entire psycho sexual element behind all of it of course, because men are fallen society is thoroughly corrupted and people are twisted. You need not concern yourself with all that, but you should be aware of it.

There are times however when people just want a good face for the job, because if you were ugly they would not hire you for it, or there would be no advantage to hiring you for it. For something like say, a coat check person, or a hostess, or waiter or bartend. In these kinds of jobs a good looking person will always be hired over one that is not. Content of character is not as big a deal as attractiveness, when a large part of your job is being seen.

So though we probably wouldn’t have minded you taking the one time four hour job in practice, we would mind it in principle, for the long run. Because people offering you jobs for your looks or you taking one for that reason, is the beginning of a turn up the wrong road (as our dear friend and teacher C.S.Lewis might say). We can wish the world weren’t that way, but it ’tis.

Don’t be fooled by the offer of the marketing job, because it is for the exact same reasons. Marketing is both another and almost technical word for – selling. Part of what they are using to push their wares, is you. In almost all sales where the market is being brought to the person, there is some level or element of selling your Self, but especially when the selling is done face to face. Market being brought to them of course means as opposed to them going to the mall or the grocery store, which is not at all the same thing.

Markets both now and even in the ancient world have always been places where people go to buy sell or trade, but marketing is a whole nother monster. It is both a modern word and a modern concept, with the first one being derived from the second – and is all about trying to Get You to buy something. You deciding to go somewhere and buy something you want or need is very different from another person wanting you to buy something from them, which you may not need or even want – but they want you to buy it. Please buy it now 😎. Just don’t look me in the eye or you will see that I lie, cause I want you to buy, you don’t need to know why.

So yes, it is an opportunity, but as you well know we are not opportunity or good idea or money led. We are Spirit led. Having a desk in itself does not mean anything, say as much as how long you spend at the desk and what you do at the desk. If you have a desk as a place for them to put the stack of pamphlets so that you can go out in town and hand them out, then the desk would be an exaggeration used as a selling point – to sell you your new job 😎.

That’s how marketing works, offers a lot while giving a little, but no matter what – get us the money. Some companies will let the pamphlet guy have a title like Marketing Director. Most marketing involves some kind of lying in an attempt to make people buy something you called them about, or pamphleted them with. Not something they came to your store to purchase like say a burrito. Which though humble, is quite honest, and – completely without deceit. Which is a very big deal to God.

So what sounds simple and attractive, is actually complicated and ugly. Pride and deception always complicate things, and like all sin . . they are always ugly. Holiness is both pure and always beautiful, and you my dear son are being made Holy. Which is the true beauty of the spirit the Father wants for us, and the only kind we will have . .

 

 

When reading the Gospels we find that hundreds who were following Jesus all left Him in a single day, because they did not love Him or even the words of God spoken by Him, they loved what He could do for them. He was left with only His core disciples, who in the end would leave Him as well when great persecution came. This happened to Paul and other men of God while obeying the very commandment to make disciples, because far too many believers love the world more than they love God. One of the tests of our love for God can be called the money test, what do you do with your money . .

 

Hello Brothers, The Lord Bless you and keep you!

       I am writing a short message from the man of God, to encourage your faith and strengthen God’s purpose in you. Brother Greg says that the Father is pleased and we are pleased also with your recent efforts to pour your self out for the sake of ministry, by paying your own way for the last service as well as publishing the Word of God through your account, on line at your own expense. This is what we have done in our life all along, and we have been raising you to do the same. This is a sign of maturity which demonstrates that one is no longer a child, needing constant care and attention.

       It is not difficult to find people who will do what you tell them if you pay them, all over the world this is true. What is extremely difficult is to pay for something much larger than your self that does not belong to you, then find others who will pay for it with you though it does not belong to them either. Only with the help of the Holy Spirit can this happen, and it is our own faith that makes it possible for each of us. As people are far too small minded hard hearted and selfish to do anything so self less as expanding the Kingdom of God in others, without immediate payment or instant reward.

       We begin as servants but it is not servants that the Father seeks for He has many, it is sons that He seeks. Without growing up and maturing in their own faith, no one can become a son. Sons are not promised to rule and reign in this world system which is being destroyed as we speak, they are promised to rule and reign in the world to come. So if you are obeying God with your life here and now and you have no appearance of ruling and reigning, then you know you are becoming a son.

       Until then you must spend all that you have to keep becoming a son, for it will cost you everything. You will remember how we tell everyone from the start who joins us from Africa that we will give them no money – what we will give them is the Word. Over the years we have given you much of the Word and some money, but the giving will end where it began – with the Word. We believe more than ever that we are now and finally at the time of our departure, for the Scripture will come to pass. Never before have so many judgments of God broken out so quickly as they are right now over the entire earth, with the worst still to come.

       So do not wait for the antichrist to cut off communication and change the money so he can control everything, before you start spending all that you have to get the Word out. For that is the main thing during his reign the forces of darkness will try to stop . . . getting the Word out. We love you my dear sons and thank God for you, and look forward to being with you in Heaven.
