Life is Intelligent

Life is all powerful. Life is always and everywhere seeking expression. Don’t you feel the divinity in you seeking expression? Life is never satisfied, because it always desires that which God has planned for it. It’s constantly seeking greater and fuller manifestation. God has put a seed of Himself into you, and He asks only that you make your desires strong enough to bring them to fulfillment.

 

You have a God-shaped hole in your life that ONLY GOD can fill up. You were made for eternity, yet you seek to be satisfied with what is temporary. God enjoys blessing you. He takes pleasure in it. He wants you to get this very important point. You don’t have to twist the Lord’s hand for Him to bless you. If the blessing is not coming, it’s because you’re rejecting it. You’re saying “no” to it, or you’re just not ready for it.

Perhaps, there is a space issue. There are things you need to let go off that is taking up all these space for breakthrough to come in. Maybe you are distracted, and you don’t see the blessing is already present.

If you’re feeling so frustrated and tired, it’s time to just surrender to God. Your life is your offering. It’s time to live out according to the divine plan God has for your life. Stop

fighting it. Stop rejecting it. Begin to flow in the grace of the Lord.

A New Response to Money for the New Year!

On the morning I first saw those dwarf trees, I immediately made the connection between those small, stunted trees and a community of people who have been limited by outside forces. People operating out of fear and limitation. People who would say, “I want to believe the prophet, but I can’t trust my money with him. Instead, I trust my money with the stock market, even though it just lost 40%.” They’d say, “I can’t believe the prophet when he says God commanded in 2 Chronicles 20:20 that if you believe the prophet you’ll prosper. I couldn’t believe the prophet with enough faith to put $10,000 in his hand. No, instead I continue to believe the real estate industry that wiped out 30% of the equity in my home.”

 

People who say, “I believe my doctor, who says, ‘It could be this,’ or ‘It could be that,’ and ‘We forgot to look,’ and I understand they’re practitioners. I forgot to believe the prophet, who isn’t practicing but who is speaking the true word of the Lord over my condition.”  It’s one thing to listen to experts. It’s another to disregard the Word of God because you want to trust human beings who are experts more. When you reject the Word of God, He will honor your desires. If you don’t want to listen to Him to know when and how you’ll be blessed, then it’s your call. God is such a good and loving God. He respects you for your choices. He won’t force His blessings on you.

Think about how you are rejecting the Word of God. Did you receive a prophetic word with doubt and cynicism recently? Maybe, it’s time to repent and to say to the Lord, “I’m all in!”

For Every NEED, There is a SOLUTION

For every effect, there must first be a cause, and for every need, there is a solution. The seed is a primary cause, the nucleus that uses its energy to send forth roots to draw in nutrients.  Need is the same thing, the nucleus that drives action. You have to need a car before you can get a car. You have to need a house before you can get a house.  You have to need a mate before you can get a mate. First there is need, and then there is the satisfaction of the need. You must feel the loss before you can be inspired to move toward the gain.  To illustrate this, imagine the way it works with a tree seed. It isn’t until an absence of nutrition is recognized by the tiny sprout that roots are prompted to extend deeper into the earth to find the food the plant needs to grow. God gave you a seed, and it’s trying to manifest the blessing that came with it. It may be a house, a car, a new business, or even a more general entrepreneurial style. But you have to know there is something out there to reach for, and that you’ll be able to grasp it, if you’re to be like the sprout whose roots extend far beyond the rocks. Your destiny, just like that of the tree seed, is to fulfill your great potential. It all starts with giving, with sending a message to the universe—presenting the need and the faith you have that you will receive—something more.

 

Give and it will be given to you, good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over will be put into your bosom, for with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you (Luke 6:38).

 

Sow goodness into the life of others. It is truly more blessed to give than to receive. As you give to others, you are emptying yourself out to be blessed more. God wants you to get how His economy works. Unless you are ready to operate according to the Kingdom of God’s rules, you will continue to operate according to the world’s system — you will continue to become limited and finite.

 

As you begin to move in light of eternity, you will notice your mindset, your thoughts, your actions, and your words change. You have a need for the Kingdom of God. It is your true home. You are just an alien here. The reason why you can never get satisfaction from material things is that what you need cannot exist in the world. Instead, as you pursue the things of the Kingdom of Heaven, you will see earthly riches following you, funding the path you are pursuing, and providing for you as you accomplish God’s plans for your life.

Align your life with God’s economy, and it will be according to God’s economy that you will sow and be blessed by.

How a Seed is Grown

You must learn the journey of the seed, because understanding that process will help you produce a harvest of health, happiness, love, success, and prosperity. All of that is found in the journey of the seed. Once you recognize how easy it actually is to reach your destination, you’ll celebrate just the idea of your future before it is close to becoming a reality because to you, the idea will be the same as reality.

The seed uses all the power it has to bring forth fruit. When it finds it has no nutrients in its immediate sphere, it puts forth roots to draw the necessary elements from the soil around it. When your soul knows it needs something to achieve abundance, it will search it out just like the roots coming out of a seed.

 

What are you feeding this “seed”? Are you feeding it with worries and ingratitude? Are you soaking yourself up in fears and disappointments? Why not instead place yourself in a position to be fruitful?  Allow this “seed” that God has placed in your life to be nurtured by love, by hope, by faith, by generosity, and by joy. Protect it from any negative elements. The world is filled with so much negativity it is so easy to be exposed. However, you need to be intentional about fruit you want to bear in your life. You choose the fruit you bear, and nurture your life according to this choice you’ve made today.

What You FIGHT, You IGNITE

Don’t focus on poverty or death, because whatever you focus on, you magnify—even if your focus is an effort to keep it away from you. If you’re afraid of contracting a skin disease, for example, and you’re often focused on this skin disease and worrying that you might come down with it, even looking up symptoms and cures online, your focus is constantly on that disease.

 

You are attracting it. Whatever you give your attention, you’ll grow. If you pay attention to negativity, that’s what will bloom in your life. If, for example, you’re often lamenting the fact that you don’t have as much money as you wish you did, you’ll continue to not have enough money—and you may even find yourself with less money, over time, because your insistence on believing you’ll never have enough of it will lead you to make choices that result in your never having enough of it. Your focus, your attention, invites the object of your attention into your life.

 

It’s popular to think fighting something is a way of keeping it at bay, because—in your mind—you’re pushing it away, but your fighting only brings more of the undesirable element to you. Imagine, for instance, that you’re trying to quit smoking: if, after smoking that last cigarette, you constantly think, “I won’t have a cigarette, I won’t have a cigarette, I won’t have a cigarette,” the only thing on your mind is a cigarette. If, on the other hand, activities occupy what used to be smoking time, and cravings are recognized but then cast aside and ignored, the obsession with a cigarette and the likelihood of that cigarette being smoked are all but eliminated.

 

Focus on God’s love. The love that brought Jesus to the cross of Calvary to die for your sins. What a great love that is available for you and me. Let go and declare freedom from whatever is keeping your mind hostage in fears and worries.

The Law of First Cause

The primary cause of any series of events can never be negative. Negation is the condition which arises from the absence of active causation. This means that a negative—be it negative behavior or a lack of action—can’t result in a positive, or forward, action.

A seed that receives no sun, no water, and no nutrients doesn’t grow; it dries up and blows away. A seed that is properly planted and watered sprouts a growth that rises through the soil to meet the sun. Every nucleus and every seed contains within itself enough vitality to draw to itself every element it needs for complete growth and fruition.

 

You are like the nucleus of a seed; what you draw, you become. Work on your nucleus.

Believe you will receive, and you will quickly draw to you all the riches you need.

 

Do you even believe that the Creator of the Universe wanted you to live in lack? Why would He create an entire universe before He created human beings if He intended for humans to be in lack? God created abundance and prosperity before He even created human beings.

 

God prepared abundance for you and me. We were created into prosperity. When the serpent tempted Eve, it was not for anything more, because everything humans can ever need was in the Garden of Eden. The serpent, however, made Eve doubt the prosperity that was before her. The serpent made her second guess the Creator by thinking that He would withhold anything from us. It was the first lie Eve fell for. Up until today, are you still falling for the same lie? Are you still falling for the lie of lack? Are you still thinking the God, who created the universe for you, would withhold any good thing from you?

Enlightenment and Finances

Honoring the Memory of the Late Reverend Dr. Frederick Eikerenkoetter

 

Enlightenment has a way of moving us away from the dogmas we had previously held onto. Organized religion should be designed to free the soul, but instead it tends to bind it. Some people were shocked by Reverend Ike’s death. I wasn’t. He would often say to me, “Son, I’m leaving here.” I’d say, “Reverend, you’re fine. You’re healthy. You run three miles every day.” He would say, “I’m gone. I’m leaving this for you kids.” When I protested that we still needed him, he would say, “I’ve had enough on this side.”  Reverend Ike retired from this experience because he wanted another experience. This life is but a single experience, and to retire is to retire from an experience. And then you go in to your next experience. Reverend Ike couldn’t find anything else he wanted to experience on this physical plane and felt within his own consciousness he had reached a pinnacle. He had been able to be what he wanted to be, to have what he wanted to have, and to do what he wanted to do. He had mastered all there was for him to master, and it was time to move on. Once you’re able to be what you want to be, do what you want to do, and have what you want to have, there’s nothing new left to experience.  With his permission, I am passing on Revered Ike’s teachings.  We can learn from Reverend Ike in our own quest to find satisfaction and contentment in the world. We live in a monetized society that we get so consumed by temporal things. We are always wanting for more that it places us in a rat race. What Reverend Ike experienced before his death makes us realize, in this side of heaven, we are limited. Money is limited. Satisfaction is limited. Growth is limited. Life is limited. But the riches of God’s glory as Philippians 4:19 reveals to us — this is eternal, limitless, and boundless. It is this kind of riches that Rev. Ike was  ready for and it is the lesson we take away from his life — the pursuit of the eternal.

Money is ENERGY

Why is money so powerful? Because money is energy. The energy of money is directed by the collective consciousness of the community. I dare you to start believing money is energy. I say, “I dare you” because once you believe, change will take place. Are you ready for the money you want to come into your life? We aren’t always prepared to have our thoughts manifest, and I see money trying to come to you in a never-ending cycle of increase and enjoyment as soon as you are able to start believing.

As humanity has become less and less connected to the Divine, we have put more and more of our attention into money. Making money, giving money, spending money, and hoarding money. Money is no longer a link or a connection with, or an expression of, the Divine. In many people’s minds, money has replaced God. Instead of dedicating money to the Divine, we have made money itself sacred to the point where we are worshipping it as the divine. You have to love money in divine order, because if you’re not careful, you’ll discover money has the power to create, and you’ll begin to worship it. When you do, money will start having you instead of you having it. When it has you, you cease to give it and start to hoard it in one way or another, whether it’s by saving and saving and giving nothing, or by buying more and more things.

 

Giving is proof that you have conquered greed. If you can give your money away, it doesn’t have power over you. It’s important to put money in the proper perspective so you don’t become controlled by it, possessed by it, and see your life ruined by it. You should never reach the point when you call money “evil”; if you do, you are not loving money in divine order.

 

When you give your tithe, the Lord pays attention. Jesus talked significantly about giving and money in the Bible because he knows that a person who cannot give — the person who cannot part with his wealth — is not serious about God. God pays attention to the person who is faithful with his tithes and offering, to the person who is generous, to the person who can sacrifice his wealth for God’s glory, because He knows this person truly worships Him. How do you know who is your God? Look at how you’re spending most of your money; where your money goes represent what’s most important to you.

How much have you given to the church? How much have you given to the needy? How much have you sown into the Kingdom of God? Can you compare that to how much you’ve spent on luxuries like trips, gadgets, or even dining out?

Money is the Power to Create

When looking at these two passages (Ecc. 10:19; Ecc 5:10), it’s clear money is a far more complex thing than a simple means of exchange or a method of purchasing goods and services.

Everything has its place in divine order. God is money, and God is love; therefore, money is love. In the earthly realm, money is a symbol, a metaphor for the divine, the Creator. Like the Creator, it has the power to create and do.

So, how did money get so perverted? A possible explanation is that it gets out of sync when it is not loved in divine order. In other words, if money isn’t appreciated for both its power and its limitations, it will be misused, mistreated, and misunderstood, and we will find ourselves handling it in a way that was never intended. Because money is love, it should be used only for that which pleases God. Money itself doesn’t pervert; we pervert money.

 

If you doubt money is the manifestation of God, I ask you to read Malachi 3:8-10:

 

“Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me.  “But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’  “In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” (NIV)

 

In the above passage, what is it that determines whether the blessing is poured out? Bringing your tithes into the storehouse. Money has the ability to capture the presence of God. Money gets the attention of God. When we sow our seeds, we begin to disturb some things to open up some areas in our lives because even that in itself gives the prophet permission to go in and search things for individuals. The Apostle Paul said, “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19).  An altar does not have power without an offering. In order for a pleasing aroma to go up to the Lord, you need to put an offering on your altar. In the present-day what does this mean for believers? It means you need to consecrate your lives to the Lord, and for the purpose of this discussion, you must dedicate your finances to God. How do believers do this? Your tithes and your offerings are what you must bring to the Lord.  The offering on the altar can produce a blessing. When the altar is desecrated, when the altar is empty, then the curse of the Lord will be upon the builder of the altar. What are you  producing with the wealth the Lord has entrusted to you? Think about how you can live out the  verse above, “My God will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

If you live out this truth today, what will change about how you are spending your money?

Sacred Origin of Money

People lived life without money. They existed for years without money, which tells us

money is an invention. Money was invented to make life easier for people to trade with one  another. It was getting more inconvenient to trade with other people using livestock and perishable items. Money was a tool for people to do business. It is but a tool created and  designed by God, through the wisdom He imparted among His people to establish a communal  way of life.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines money as “something generally accepted as a medium of exchange, a measure of value, or a means of payment,” but it is much more than that, and several references to money throughout Scripture beg us to look at it from a number of angles.

Let’s visit a familiar verse: A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things (Ecc. 10:19). This is the same preacher who tells us in Ecclesiastes5:10, He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

 

King Solomon gives us conflicting views about money because people gave money some form of economic, political, social, and even spiritual power that we need to be aware of. Otherwise, it overpowers us. Money can dictate futures and open doors, but ultimately,we need to recognize that money is a human invention. It is not God. It cannot take the place of God. A huge chunk of the Holy Scriptures tells us how to view and to use money for His glory. When we are able to develop a biblical perspective about money, we’ll be able to understand where King Solomon is coming from — money is a well; what you get out of this well depends on the heart of the person drawing from it.

Sharing the Vision

Leaders exhibit a unique blend of charisma, of vision, and a character that attracts people to follow them. They recognize the need to attract followers. And that is for them to share the vision, the dream, the direction that goes beyond what one sees written on mission and vision statements. Leadership’s vision is evident in the actions, beliefs, values and goals of an organization’s leaders.  Leadership vision is powerful because people live that leadership vision every single day at work. Employees for example, are not just creating things or rendering their talents and abilities to make the company earn some money but they play an important role in accomplishing an even greater task. It is the role of leaders to make them see the future that they are creating with what they do today. For example, an earth-friendly company whose vision is to keep electronic junk from piling up in landfills does so by re-using them.

 

What can bring transformation in the way an employee views what he does every working day is for leaders to make it clear what the company as a unit is trying to achieve. To its effect, employees will have a better understanding that they are not just processing things to make money for the company but they are also making the world a better place to live in. Or let’s say a company or an organization directly helps charitable institutions with a portion of what the company earns. Employees having known such a vision will understand that more than servicing for the company, they are helping millions of lives.

Who are three persons you are excited to share your vision with?

Invent a New Future

A lot of people take language as a means to describe the world that is out there—an unforetold reality of other people, of things, of the universe, and even of ourselves. We clearly say that I am this and that. It’s as though talking about ourselves as objects to be described and defined. But that doesn’t mean it’s inappropriate; it’s just one way of how we use language. Language doesn’t just have the property to describe, but as previously mentioned, language has the power to create. Through language, we create worlds into being, but not immediately as something that is real. Possibility, for example, does not originate as a reality in its beginning. Reality is something we create as real; eventually it turns into a reality.

 

What is out there—the reality, the conditions, and the circumstances of the future are things that are not considered facts just yet. They are still words that we include in our conversations. But, as long as that future is not yet today, we have a lot of room to alter those future circumstances. As we start a brand new conversation, of redeeming the negative words we say about our future, we begin to alter our future’s possibility.

 

Transformation is about inventing a future when other sees that there is no future. Life’s possibilities and actualities can change by starting to alter the words being spoken. This gives the freedom, the space to invent whatever is deemed possible. Acting and living according to the altered conversation, a group becomes inspired by supporting this newly created possibility to the point of articulating a future that even changes the way the present situation is viewed. And because people act in the way that is consistent with the future, that future is created; what was once impossible becomes possible.

 

Realizing that we live in the face of a possibility brings doubt and uncertainty that leaves us dreary about the future, making it overwhelming for us to look ahead—for possibility cannot be explained, fathomed, defined, or described. But as difficult as it may be for that possibility to turn out positive, it is at this stage when the same possibility leaves us that much room for us to exercise power and freedom to navigate through those unchartered territories and make it our own.
