2023 The Year of Abundance
2023 The Golden Year
2023 The Year of Abundance. I have to tell you that I have been seeing this a lot since the start of this year through various visions. The thing is that the street marked abundance is located right next to the street marked lack. As I am looking at the two, the Lord says to me “choose“.
In my head I was thinking who in their right mind would choose lack? Can I tell you, a lot of people will choose lack. The thing is that sometimes abundance can appear initially with giants ahead of it in the form of hard work, and once the enemy figures out that you are about to hold that thing in your hand, busyness, distractions, intimidation and fear show up. You will need to focus on the end result. Think about when they were right about to announce the Supreme Court decision for Roe vs Wade. We already knew the outcome so the enemy had to try to stir up trouble in the form of protests, vandalism, riots, murder plots, fear and intimidation. I’m sure the extent of what these Justices went through we will never know. All of this was to get them to back up.
Do you understand now? Some of you will have to fight when you get to the very end. Some things will come very easy and others, depending on how big it is, will be hard before you can get your hands on that if too many people know about it. Hence, I’m always saying don’t talk about what your plans are. Just do it. Once it is complete then you can say something, if necessary. You will have less attacks against it. Move in silence. This is why the Roe vs Wade draft documents were leaked because the enemy needed to stir up the ant nest in a last ditch effort to stop it. But that thing was a done deal. It was done from last Rosh Hashanah 5782!
Your abundance is a done deal. It was done Rosh Hashanah 5783.
Based on how God put this ABUNDANCE IS A CHOICE in this season. It was not so in past seasons, but something shifted in the realm of the spirit. I know some of you right now cannot believe that, but I am going to lay it out to you exactly as the Lord laid it out to me.
If you read the 5783 Part 2 prophetic word, I said the wealth transfer is here and it was released based on Isaiah 23. There’s no point in you praying for it because it is a completed thing. Do you BELIEVE IT?
Where people choose lack:
UnBelief – some people just don’t believe it. Do you know that not even Jesus can work a miracle for you if you don’t believe?
53 When Jesus had finished these parables, He departed from there. 54 And He came to His hometown and began teaching them in their synagogue, with the result that they were astonished, and said, “Where did this man acquire this wisdom and these miraculous powers? 55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is His mother not called Mary, and His brothers, James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this man acquire all these things?” 57 And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not dishonored except in his hometown and in his own household.” 58 And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.
Not even Jesus can bring you abundance if you don’t believe it. Selah!
They talked themself out of a blessing. They saw the miracles and they believed at first then they basically stripped Him of His power in their minds and hearts because they humanized Him and then took offense to it, can you imagine?
The word says signs and wonders follow them that believe (Mark 16:17-18). If you’ve never experienced it, there is a high possibility you don’t believe you can operate in signs and wonders and that’s why you never see it.
The same thing happened to the Israelites, they wandered the wilderness for so long – 40 years – that when the time came for them to cross over they refused to believe that it was time. They chose more wandering instead of going up against the giants in the land that was promised to them.
16 For who provoked Him when they had heard? Indeed, did not all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses? 17 And with whom was He angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose dead bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19 And so we see that they were not able to enter because of unbelief.
They chose lack because of their unbelief. They knew that abundance existed once they crossed over, the spies even came back with the evidence. And even in the midst of the evidence they still chose to not move forward because they were scared of the giants.
I’m going to say it to you as Jesus said it to me so simply…CHOOSE.
Now, He pointed out to me that the abundance and lack exists in these 4 areas – spiritual, mental, physical and emotional.
Therefore, unbelief would be a mental thing but it is also spiritual, wouldn’t you say?
You can lack:
spiritually – your relationship with the Lord is nonexistent or weak. This means you have spiritual lack.
emotionally – you respond in an emotional manner with outbursts and make bad decisions based on your emotions therefore you suffer lack as a result of it.
physically – you don’t have any money, you have nothing stored up or you have illness and disease in your body and all of this is physical lack.
mentally – you’re not mentally prepared for what is happening in our world today or what is about to happen. Therefore, you may be prone to a mental breakdown. This is mental lack.
All of the issues you face will fall into one of these 4 categories. Identify where it fits and address it.
So, when the Lord said 2023 The Year of Abundance, He was not just talking about money.
He wants to give you abundance in all areas of your life.
Speaking from a financial perspective, the problem that most of us are going to fall into is that we don’t know how to spell JOY.
If you’ve done the yearly fasts with us then you know that JOY is spelled Jesus, Others, You.
If you read Isaiah 23 and walked away a little disappointed, perhaps you spell it YJO? Because that would account for the disappointment.
When you think JOY, Isaiah 23 fulfills that!
The first thing you need to know about this wealth that is coming is that you cannot spend $0.10 of it without asking the Lord. Because what you have in mind and what He has in mind may not be the same thing.
J – The Lord needs to rebuild the church, and that is going to take money. So He’s going to give it to you and He expects you to do with it what He asks.
O – The next thing is that there are so many people that are hurting right now. They need help and again the Lord is going to funnel that money through you so that you can help them.
Y – There is also going to be money, wealth there for you too. The Lord has not forgotten you and He wants you to have a prosperous life. You and your family.
The GIVERS are going to get the money first <<<<read it again.
If you are a selfish person, you are getting it last. If you notice another Christian giving it to you, that’s because they are the giver and God knew He could get it from them to give it to you.
It is in our nature, to be selfish. Me first. For most Christians, if God allowed them to take theirs first, no one else would get anything. Our desire for things is like a bottomless pit. Well, let me buy my house first before I give, well let me get this car first before I give, well let me get my kids into this school first before I give, scrolling through your Instagram figuring out what you’ll get next…..on and on. It is a bottomless pit of GREED. An insatiable monster. Never satisfied.
People whose only giving is sowing into their own ministry <<<LOL>>> what a joke! Well, that is nice disguise. Who are you fooling? Noone but yourself. Ask the Lord about that.
This is how most people are. Selfish. We, the body of Christ, should never be like this.
You need to let Him lead the dance when it comes to your finances. Ask Him first and wait for an answer before you spend one penny.
He’s going to start a lot of you off with training wheels to see how you manage it. Those who steward well, will get more. Those who obey the instructions when He gives it, will get more. Until finally when you ask Him what I am to do with this Lord, the answer will be “you can do what you want with it” YES! This is going to come! You cannot spell JOY without the Y so it is coming but you need to mentally prepare yourself to be LAST.
There is going to be a test. Please remember I told you that.
The abundance is not going to hit all of us all at the same time. That is not how it will work. I shared before that in the case of Roe vs Wade you can see that some states were already set to go because they were prepared and ready to roll out their plan as soon as it got overturned. They moved into it quickly. While there are others that are still battling to this day. They didn’t have a plan or perhaps thought this would never happen. No expectation leads to no preparation. Are you ready? It is going to look the same with the wealth transfer. Get with the Lord and find out what His plans are ahead of time so you can move quickly once it happens.
Some of you are ready to step into what God will give you. Others you will start to discern that you need to get some things in order for it to happen. Some will have to go into spiritual warfare over it. It will happen for you but you need to be expecting it. Pray. Ask the Lord to show you where it is and what it is and then ask Him to release it to you.
I saw in a vision what looked like a very busy marketplace, with many different shops. There were different types of businesses, restaurants, jewelry stores, clothing stores, art gallery, fruit and vegetable stands, just a variety of businesses.
Instantly I knew that it wasn’t just going to be one thing it would be a combination and a variety of different things – stock market, businesses, land, houses, forex, gold, silver, bonds, crypto….etc….etc.
It’s not one way, it’s many different ways and means that He will use to bring it to you.
If you have no money, please don’t think you cannot partake. No! You would be wrong to think that. God already knows you have no money, therefore whatever He’s bringing to you won’t require any!!!
We’re all at a different level so He’s going to present different opportunities to different people. Do you understand? Nobody is going to be left out. Again, do you believe or not?
Things will begin to just fall into your lap. You’ll have dreams and visions on how to invest. When to buy, when to sell. What to buy, what to sell. Innovative and creative ideas. Many different ways that will work with your budget.
How are you going to come by these ideas? Spiritual abundance. Nothing is coming apart from a relationship with Jesus Christ. In your private prayer time, the Lord will begin to talk to you about wealth. Please do not obsess over this or turn it into an idol. No, you just need to pray once, let the Lord know you are expecting it and let Him lead you to that. No need to ask every single day, this is not necessary. Just have a sense of expectancy in your spirit. If you have to war for it you will know because He will tell you. Pray in tongues and ask for wisdom. If He hasn’t already started doing this with you, He will. Because the transfer already happened so now He will begin to tell His people how they will get it.
When He speaks to you, if you don’t know anything about what it is He tells you, do some research and find out how to do it. For example, if you get stock tips and you know nothing about the stock market, then do some research. More importantly, keep. it. to. yourself. And then of course, send us a testimony so others can be encouraged.
Jesus is your financial advisor for the wealth transfer.
I remember back in 2008 a few short months before the real estate market began to crumble the Lord asked me to do something that would take some money and I asked Him where I would get the money. Suddenly, I get this idea take it out of your 401K. For those of you who don’t know, this is a retirement account. I thought to myself, there’s no way! The tax ramifications of that is huge and any financial advisor would tell you not to do it. As soon as I thought that the Lord said to me a clear voice “What 401K?” Meaning, there isn’t one, it doesn’t exist. I was in shock. It was a prophetic message to tell me that the money won’t be there and I needed to get my money out now. I pulled out that money and sure enough the market crashed. People lost massive chunks of their retirement accounts. One of my friends lost 40%. It just vanished! Some lost everything because they were invested in ponzy schemes and found out then that it wasn’t real. People went to jail, others committed suicide. When we save, we expect our money to be there when we need it but the truth is any investments that are made without consulting the Lord are not guaranteed to be there. If you never asked God about where you should invest, then who knows?!
Am I telling you to pull your money out of your 401K? NO. I repeat…NO!!!
That was His message to me in 2008. You need to go get your own word!
Another time I had spent money on this passive income system. This was something that I started doing before I became a Christian but continued doing it after I got saved. I fell for the pitch. You know “in as little as 1 hour a day, you too can have financial freedom…yadi yadi yada” then they show you the person relaxing on the beach with the money rolling in all these testimonials from regular people just like you! Well, let’s just say after 3 hours per day for about 6 years! I made some money, but it was negligible. I said to the Lord one day, why can’t I get this to work? There has to be some tips and tricks to give me an edge on this. Can you just tell me a secret to get this to work for me? The Lord said to me “that is man’s system”. LOL whew! LOL In other words, the flesh of a man came up with that system and I am not about to tell you how to decipher that. I thought to myself did I seriously just waste 6 years of my life working on this for nothing? That was the last day I spent any time on that. God was just telling me that He operates differently. He is supernatural. The endless toiling with little fruit should’ve been my first indicator that something was up. He could’ve told me when I became a Christian to stop but He didn’t because He knew the burn I would feel for wasting my time would ensure that I would never ever do that again.
Listen, it doesn’t matter how many other people it worked for, it won’t work for you if God has another plan for you. That’s why you can’t follow other people, you ask the Lord.
All I am saying is this, if you have not consulted with the Lord on where you have your investments or how you are making your money, there is no guarantee that thing is going to pay off or even be there when you go to collect it. I don’t care how great your financial advisor is or if it’s a great deal. If God decides to pull the plug on it, that thing is over. You do not know the inner workings of these companies or why they are giving it away so cheap. But you do know Someone who does. Ask HIM.
You better get your spiritual abundance game on so your financial abundance game can be on point.
He showed me a vision that in this season, investments and making money was to be viewed like a game of frogger. Do you know frogger? Watch the frog in the video below.
There are no safe investments. There are only safe moves. There are gators and snakes everywhere.
He’ll tell you when you need to buy, sell, move from this to that, switch banks. Hold the money here and wait, move over there, hold, hold, hold, now move to this. It’s literally frogger season! Check in every now and then with your Financial advisor, Jesus, to see if you need to move things around.
You won’t need to sit there wringing your hands or glued to your computer screen if you just do what He tells you in the prayer closet.
“The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.”
In 2008, this ministry was 2 years old. I worked back then with a lot of smaller churches and ministries and did a bit with various intercession prayer groups. Our prayer requests grew about 400% over the previous years and I spoke with many small churches and ministries that were having a hard time keeping their doors open.
People were foreclosing on their homes left and right. We were in a recession. It was a very difficult time. As a result, donation were down to an all-time low. Not for us personally because we were not accepting donations at that time. It was the churches and other ministries that were having a hard time. They had many more people coming for help and less and less people giving money. The prayer request was the same from all of them “pray for our finances because we may need to close our doors because of this”. Some of them did close down.
You know when you have dedicated your life to serving the Lord and you have a church and your finances start to dry up to the point where you close your doors, it causes you to question yourself. What did I do wrong? Is God mad at me? You feel like you are being abandoned by God when you’ve given Him your everything by opening the church.
As I was in prayer one day praying for these churches and asking the Lord what was going on heard the Lord say “My people have put Me in a recession. They are in a recession and now they have put Me in a recession“.
He was talking about us, all of us. You see what happens when there is an economic downturn is people pull back on giving. They stop giving. Am I saying you should not pay your phone bill and give to the church instead? No. You need your phone. You need to pay your electric bill, you must pay your rent. These are all necessities. But what I am saying is, you better not be buying Starbucks coffee for $8 if that’s all you have to give. You don’t need the coffee. You better not be spending money on a manicure and you’re not paying your tithes! No ma’am!! You can make the Michael Jackson Billie Jean gloves a trend again or learn to do your own nails. Stop and reevaluate your priorities.
GOD was offended by that thing!!! He was hurt. Which told me that there are people who could give but stopped because their money was down. I still remember it like it was yesterday. Where is the Starbucks money coming from? He’s still giving us money, so why are we holding out on Him? You better be eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and not stopping at McDonalds! You see what happens is, if you say you have no money to give to the churches and ministries that are feeding you spiritually you can’t be spending on stuff like that. It means you DO have the money, but you’ve decided because you have less that you are going to stop giving to God but you’re still taking care of YOU. God was hurt by that thing.
You may not be able to give us much as you used to, ok. That is fine. But you should never just STOP cold turkey. No, Sir! That would be a mistake. Reevaluate your finances and make the necessary changes so that you are still keeping God first in your giving.
I’m telling you this for your own good because let me explain the trap that you put yourself in when you hold back on the giving. It is a SPIRITUAL LAW that’s the only way for you to get financial wealth is to give. Period. The end. Therefore, the minute you stop giving, you violated the law and you shut off your source. Have you heard of the accuser of the brethren? He waits around waiting for you to violate a law, especially in a wealth transfer year, so he can use it against you to make sure you never get what God has for you. He goes into the courts of heaven and that’s where he gets you. (Zechariah 3).
You already know the wealth transfer has happened in the realm of the spirit and now it needs to manifest in the earth. So does the enemy. What he is about to do to some of you is shake your finances to cause you to pull back your hand from giving, then he will accuse you before the Father for not giving and hold your money hostage in the spiritual realm. He has no LEGAL right to do it unless you give him legal rights. I hope you got that. Don’t give him anything to hold against you. GIVE. Put yourself last. If you have to give less, give less, but NEVER stop giving. Cut out the excessive spending. These are lean times. But you never stop giving.
Remember the story of Elijah and the widow? 1 Kings 17. That was in a season of lack and famine, and he told her make my bread first. What if she said no? THIS is where this scripture came into play. Please catch that. It is in the season of lack that she had to reevaluate her plan and make sure she gave it. Some of you will experience more lack than necessary because you stopped giving. And then you create delay in the courts of heaven because you stopped giving.
When we decide to put God last He was also begin to dry up the little we have. Did you know that?
Look at what happened in the book of Haggai.
3 ‘Who of you is left who saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing? 4 But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares the Lord. ‘Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the Lord Almighty. 5 ‘This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’
6 “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. 7 I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. 8 ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty. 9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”
The Lord is saying we have work to do. We need to build this new church. In a shaking, like what is happening now and what happened in 2008 money starts changing hands. All the gold and the silver belongs to the Lord and HE is the one who decides who gets it.
Instead of seeking the Lord, they went about defiling themselves with the world and their expectations for financial prosperity never came. It never happened. Because they didn’t put God’s work FIRST. J-O-Y
15 “‘Now give careful thought to this from this day on[b]—consider how things were before one stone was laid on another in the Lord’s temple. 16 When anyone came to a heap of twenty measures, there were only ten. When anyone went to a wine vat to draw fifty measures, there were only twenty. 17 I struck all the work of your hands with blight, mildew and hail, yet you did not return to me,’ declares the Lord. 18 ‘From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid. Give careful thought: 19 Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit.
“‘From this day on I will bless you.’”
He was letting them know that because they defiled themselves and didn’t build His temple first there was LACK. This lack was created by God just to get their attention to return to Him.
In these times, people pull back and the less they give is the less they have. And, as I have said before Giving is more than just money. Don’t pull back because you will only be hurting yourself. Do not shut down your own supply chain.
You need to be praying about WHERE to give your money. If you sow into the wrong field, one that God has already ordained to destruction, then you are going to get hit too. PLEASE pray about your giving. Don’t just give as you normally do. Pray about where to give and how much. This is so important. God is removing some in the church and ministries right now. You need to be careful. Pray about your alignments. Ask God to show you the spirit operating behind some of these ministers. You need to know so that you don’t sow into that.
I’ve had seasons where I was sowing into other ministries more than I was into the church I was attending. That is because I felt in my spirit something was wrong there, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Once it was exposed, I realized that it was God all along that was causing me to give elsewhere instead of in my own church. God loves a cheerful giver so if you spirit is not reading “cheerful giver” as you give your 10% tithe, check that! That could be the Lord redirecting you. Especially, if you are a giver.
GEEZ, please hear it by the spirit. PRAY about where you give your money. Don’t just follow some religious rule or allow people to guilt you into things. Follow how you feel in your spirit about a thing. God will confirm it later why He told you to make certain changes with your giving.
2023 The Golden Year
14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’
Lord wants you to get yourself mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally prepared to handle this.
It will be a Golden Year.
I’ve brought up the rich young ruler before and told you that he didn’t miss heaven because he was rich. Did you know that the church of Laodecia was rich? Yes, these were wealthy people. If wealth in itself was bad the Lord wouldn’t have an entire message for a church of rich people. We’re not all going to be wealthy but there will be many. How else is the church and ministries and the work of the Lord going to be funded?
They were rich. Physical wealth.
I want to give you a very important piece of this puzzle so again you can understand why Jesus said what He said to them. Do you know how they made their wealth? Laodecia was known for business trade in gold, garments and eye salve. LOL. Isn’t that interesting?
So here it is Jesus is telling them to buy from Him something that they already have.
You see they had the physical part right, but spiritually they were in lack!
Golden Year means that this is the year when you should allow the Lord to purify you and take you to the next level in Him spiritually. Purification.
White Garments means that you are to put off your old ways, any behaviors or habits you have from your garments being defiled (read Haggai 2). Clean clothes for this new journey. You can’t be mixing Christianity with other practices and think God is going to be OK with that. No. He wants you to clean your garments and step out in purity, and holiness.
Eye Salve means that you are spiritually blind. You have no insight and revelation into the things of God. You live your life from the natural perspective, and you have an inability to perceive the things of the Spirit because of worldiness.
In the natural everything looked perfect, they had abundance. But in the spirit, they had lack.
He said BUY FROM ME! That means this is going to cost you. You will have to surrender and give up some things to live this.
He said buy from me gold so that you may be rich. The purification process brings spiritual wealth. And that leads to your seat on the throne. AUTHORITY.
Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God
God is getting ready to level up some of you spiritually. You’ll have a higher authority in the realm of the spirit. This is your Golden Year. Unbothered by the cares of this world because you have a higher seat of authority in the realm of the spirit. This is BIG.
This is the year when you will get your encounter with God. As you buy from Him gold, white garments and eye salve which are all spiritual it will cost you but in the end, you will have physical plus spiritual wealth. You get to have both. How amazing is that??
This is your Golden Year. The year when you will see growth in your life more than ever because you surrendered to God’s process and allowed Him to lead the dance.
It is very easy when we are financially blessed that we become lukewarm, which is what happened with this church. When all your needs, wants and desires are met, you tend to become indifferent because what is an obstacle for most is not for you. The Lord is telling you ahead of time, don’t forget your spiritual life. As He said in Deuteronomy 8:18, we should never forget how we got it. Put Him first and do not fall into indifference.
All of our works at the end of the day will be tested by fire to see what it is.
1 Corinthians 3:10-15
But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
Things are about to be tested and for those of you who have done the work it will show. God is going to make a clear distinction between those who are His and those who are not. The Golden Year is your year to shine in the natural and in the spiritual.
