As a teacher of The Written Word my goal is to provide revelation and understanding that can be lived out as wisdom. I've had the same conversation twice in one week about the topic of believers doing their best to get everything free instead of investing in The Kingdom and themselves.
Yeshua paid it all. And yes His work at Calvary was complete, but we have to pay and invest, too. Believers don't have any trouble buying name-brand bags, shoes and clothing (I know I don't have any problem paying what my favorite companies charge) but too often we want to undercut Kingdom entrepreneurs instead of supporting them.
That's dishonor and it's the exact opposite of everything Proverbs (and The rest of The Word) instructs. God's not gonna prosper an unrenewed, selfish mindset. Watch this short video for some real heat.

The Lord is great and greatly to be praised! I overcome by The Blood of The Lamb and the word of my testimony so I'm here to testify of His goodness to me.
My refrigerator was dead when I returned from my recent travels last week and I was able to get online, order a new one and pay for it to be delivered and installed. That's a huge testimony of God restoring me over these last six years.
I was homeless in 2011, and today I get to travel the country in Jesus' Name, sow $1000 seeds every month and replace broken appliances without having to sow and fast and pray before I have my needs met. That's not only restoration, it's increase, 'cause I couldn't do all that when I was employed full time as a public school teacher.
I shared how I began to break through in the financial realm in my book My Money Grows on Trees (2013). I went through a cycle - seven years, 2009 to 2016 - of losses that began with my job and ended up including my son (twice), most of my material possessions, my pride and everything else. But when I stepped out of that cycle of loss in 2017, I stepped into restoration, Jubilee and acceleration.
And it's only gonna get better for me because not only am I in a new cycle personally, God's begun a new seven-year cycle, too. We're now in the year 5778 which starts a new set of seven in God's timing. This new set of seven years begins with eight and holds the promise of a new beginning.
If you're interested in learning more about the many blessings available for the year ahead, register for Supernatural You 5778: Victorious New Beginning. It's an online conference where you'll hear The Words of The Lord from five prophetic voices who are moving boldly forward in the days ahead.
We're now in The Kingdom Age and The Church is marked to rise up in power and authority, and we're here to deliver the revelation you need to advance in your personal lives and also as representatives of Christ.
After you receive the revelation you need for 5778, I'm hosting a prayer season in November and December - Building in the Spirit - to help you establish and manifest God's will for you in 2018. Register for both of these events today.
