This prophetic word for August 2023 is titled The Children Are Exempt.
Who is this word for? Everyone. But to be specific for the people who have bills to pay and you may be struggling financially right now or the inflation is taking a toll on your family or God called you to do something and you don’t have the money to do it. This is a word about finances.
You should know that everything you are about to read here, you already know. But sometimes we just need to be told the SAME Truth in a different way.
This is a BIG word. I would suggest, when you get to something that is ministering to you, stop reading and process it, eat that word, then come back and read some more because I am sure several things in here will be speaking to you.
I am SO EXCITED about sharing this with you today. Wow! This word is like God backing up His promise that as we delve into His word we will Become Wealthy.
The first time I read the bible through it was in New International Version (NIV), the second time I read it in New King James Version (NKJV), the third time New Living Translation (NLT) Then I got an entire CD pack of the bible in NIV and I listened to the whole thing in audio format in my car while I was driving and even at home.
Some of you may be thinking why would I want to read it in all these versions? Well, each version brings something to the table and helps you understand the scriptures that much more. The audio bible offers something completely different in that it is like someone telling you a story and you begin to see how the whole picture comes together instead of just picking out scriptures here and there.
You can listen to the audio bible for free online. I use BibleGateway.com and download the app to my phone and I can listen to it anywhere.
I was at home cleaning and decided to listen to Matthew 17 on the audio bible format. I have read this before many times and studied out portions of it but this time I heard the narrator say “The Children Are Exempt“.
It is like I’m driving in a car and I drive past where I was supposed to go and so I yell “STOP, back up, back up”, because the first thing in my mind was “Wait, what? The children are exempt? From what?”
You can’t deep dive with and audio bible, this is where you pick up the actual bible and delve into it. This is where I discovered a gemstone. A gemstone is a scripture that just speaks to your spirit and soul in such a way that it brings instant transformation and you feel like you’re the only person that unearth it because it is so precious and valuable to you. That’s a gemstone! But then as I began to process it, I realized it wasn’t just one gemstone, it was a gemstone factory!
Immediately I grabbed my bible and I start to study it and the Holy Spirit just hit my spirit and start to minister this word to me like I never heard it before.
Here’s the scripture and then I am going to break it down for you.
Matthew 17:24-27 NIV
24 After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma temple tax came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”
25 “Yes, he does,” he replied.
When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked. “From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own children or from others?”
26 “From others,” Peter answered.
“Then the children are exempt,” Jesus said to him. 27 “But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.”
You may have read this before but I am about to break it down for you in a different kind of way.
1. First of all, there is a bill that needs to be paid. It is clear from the scripture that the bill belongs to Jesus, right? Because the question from the tax collector is “does your teacher pay temple tax?” So the question is why is the tax collector asking Peter about Jesus’ bill?
Is your electric company going to your best friend for your electric bill? NO! So what is that?
You see, this is what the devil does, he brings PROBLEMS and drop them on you that is not even yours to carry. Misplacing the responsibility for the debt.
Peter responded “Yes”But what he should’ve said is, why are you asking me about Jesus’ bill? This is not my problem, ask Jesus. Sometimes we pick up things, financial and otherwise, that doesn’t even belong to us.
2. “When Peter came into the house” This was not addressed in the temple, Peter had to come into the house. Which house? The house of God. Coming under the covering of God. This is where He lives and you also need to live under His covering. Why didn’t Jesus address this at the temple? Even with this simple change in location He was speaking. Whose covering are you under?
3. “When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” Did you catch the switch? Peter entered the house, but Jesus is addressing Simon. The chapter before, Matthew 16, is where his name was changed from Simon to Peter. So he enters the house and Jesus is talking to the OLD Identity. He’s about to speak something to the old identity to bring him into his new identity. Simon means “to hear or listen” So Jesus is speaking to the old man saying “Listen up, I am about to impart to you a Truth that is tied to your NEW Identity so that you will never again think like this old identity. You are the ROCK, Peter, and I now need you to ACT, SPEAK and THINK like you are a rock!” No longer will you tap into the old way of thinking but from this moment on I need you to OWN your new identity in Christ where your finances are concerned. Where paying your bills are concerned. It is time for YOU to own your new identity in Christ where your finances are concerned. There is a shift that happened when you got saved and I believe most of us never truly accepted the shift. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
4. Look at how Jesus set up Peter for the revelation now. He asks him a question, ” From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own children or from others?” Peter said no, they are asking others to pay it not their own children. Why? Because the children are exempt.
Let me ask you this, are your children worried about how they are going to pay the bills in your home? NO! They are children and they are exempt from this responsibility. They are under your house. The location brings an exemption.
The children are exempt from worrying about what they will eat. The children are exempt from how they will get back and forth to school. The children are exempt from even entertainment and enjoyment. The children are exempt from paying for that summer vacation. It is YOU, the parent that takes care of all of that. Your children are not sitting there worrying about your bills!!! Because it is not there’s to carry, the children are exempt. When a bill arrives in your mailbox, it is addressed to the responsible party…the person who pays the bill. It is not addressed to your children.
You grew up not worrying about your bills, this was not your responsibility. And you were free, to enjoy life, create things with your imagination, dream big and think about what kind of life you would lead FREE of worry and any financial obligations. You just thought “the world was your oyster” and you could do anything. I believe this is why kids like superheroes, it makes them imagine that they are so much bigger than they are. Which I believe is a wonderful thing.
This is why little girls dream of being princesses and have a fairytale life. It creates a world for them where they feel special. When you are a child you DREAM and you actually believe it is possible to achieve that.
This is why Jesus said in Luke 18:16-17
“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”
There has to be a bit of childlike wonder about us in order for us to enter into the Kingdom Mindset, otherwise we may never enter it. You cannot enter the rest of God and receive the blessings until you go back to the mind of a child.
What happens is over time we lose this level of thinking. We start to work as teenagers or young adults and then we start to take on the responsibilities of paying the bills. Once we move out of our parents’ house, we lose the childlike wonder and we feel responsible for everything. We change.
What does it mean that the Children are Exempt?
Exempt – Strong Concordance 1658
eleútheros (an adjective) – properly, free (liberated), a free man or a free woman, not a slave or not under restraint, free, delivered from obligation, unbound (unshackled); (figuratively) free to realize one’s destiny in Christ.
You are HIS child, and you are exempt. You are free to dream. Free from the worry of financial obligations of paying your bills… Forever and ever, Amen. It doesn’t matter how old you get, the children are exempt.
How do you become a Child of God?
12 Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
It is in the act of being born again, through Jesus Christ, into the family of God that you now become one of God’s children and now you are exempt from this. You become officially under the house of God and His covering. He is your Father, Abba Father.
You cannot afford to move away from this thought because this is where your freedom from worry lies. If you want to go back to dreaming big and achieving even your childhood dreams you need to access your mind as if you are a child.
Even taking it back to the Garden of Eden, when Eve arrived everything was in place. She wasn’t worried about anything. That Garden was well stocked and she was provided for. By Adam? NO! Adam is a son! And, the children are exempt. When Adam arrived everything was already there. Adam was not paying those bills, Abba Father is the one who is taking care of the provisions. They were both trust fund babies! So even if your husband is the one paying the bills in your household, it is not him who is ultimately responsible for that, it is GOD who is his Father. You are not created to strive, and strive and strive. Toiling away and never laying hold of your inheritance in Christ Jesus. And my God shall supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. If you are not “in Christ” you will not be able to access when you are about to learn. You need to have the Spirit of God within you to tap into the supernatural provision of God.
***For the single women, if you are struggling to pay your bills and you are thinking that you need to get married so that your husband can take the responsibility of paying those bills… You are thinking incorrectly. GOD is the provider in your marriage, it is not the man. Therefore, you need to tap into the supernatural provisions of God while you’re single! Your husband will need to tap into the supernatural provisions of God while he’s single. Because it is your ABBA Father that is paying the bills. You are both children and therefore EXEMPT! If the two of you are tapped in when you come together BOOM, the power of agreement and now you are millionaires because you both know how to tap into the provisions of Abba. Jesus, is your first husband. You can get all your bills paid NOW. (Isaiah 54:5, 2 Corinthians 11:2). What about the women who will never get married?? You need to access this now. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t desire to be in a relationship. You are financially secure because of your FIRST Husband, Jesus, and you should never be looking to get married just to pay your bills. GOD is your provider. Otherwise, you could end up marrying the wrong person***
Prayer: Abba Father, be a Husband to me as Your word says. Deliver me from the thinking that it will take a man to provide for me, when you have clearly said that YOU are the provider. This is why Your name is Jehovah Jireh. Show me how to move under Your House, Your covering, and grant me the grace to experience You as provider so that I will be released from the worry of paying my bills, in Jesus name, Amen.
This entire problem of us accepting the responsibility started in the Garden of Eden after the fall of man.
17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’
“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,..”
Prior to the fall, Adam and Eve were not concerned about anything related to their provision. It was the fall of man that produced this CURSE of toiling for your provision, and worrying about how you are going to pay those bills. And that curse was put on the MAN. So when we sit and worry about your bills, we are living from the cursed mindset, even though we are saved and exempt!!! You are thinking like you’re Simon when in fact you are now Peter. This is why men tend to find their value in their profession and their jobs. It is a cursed mindset. Men are more valuable than their jobs and their paycheck. To say that one has more value because he makes more money than another is just a lie from the pit of hell. And women, especially the Christian women, should never agree, encourage or endorse this type of mindset. SELAH.
BUT, Hallelujah!, thanks be to GOD that Jesus came to remove this curse from the MEN. Bringing us back into communion with God so that we don’t have to worry about our bills again! The MEN shouldn’t be worrying about the bills and toiling. Neither should they find their value in their bank account. You’re already free from this when you got saved.
13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
***Speaking to the Men of God, married or single….you are FREE from the curse of finding your value in your job, or your profession or your career, free from that curse of worrying about how you’re going to pay your bills or provide for your family, or afford that marriage, or that new baby that’s on the way! Or what will happen when you lose your job, or how you’re going to keep up with the inflation… JESUS paid it all when He died on that tree and…
YOU ARE A SON!!!
Therefore, YOU are exempt!!!”***
Forward that bill to the rightful Owner, Jehovah Jireh. HALLELUJAH!!
Jesus came to pay for this sin by dying on the cross, paying your bill, resurrecting into the heavenly realms and sent the Holy Spirit to dwell on the inside of us so that our EYES could be opened to THIS truth. So that we can shift into the new identity, you are a CHILD of the Most High God and THE CHILDREN ARE EXEMPT!!! Step into your new identity in Christ.
Come on now!!!
Prayer for the men: Abba Father, Forgive me for not laying claim to the fullness of my inheritance in Christ Jesus. Forgive me for accepting the responsibility for things that I am no longer responsible for, in Christ. While, I received You Jesus in my heart, I am now aware that my mindset is still in alignment with the curse. Deliver me from this God, I loose my mind from the curse of toil and labor and being responsible for the bills and from the curse of the worry associated with my finances. I bind my mind to the mind of Christ and I receive right now the mindset of Christ concerning my finances. I am free. And whom the Son has set free is free indeed. Thank you for delivering me from this worry. Allow me to dream again, like I was a child free from worry. I forward all my bill to Jehovah Jireh. Grant me the grace to step into this new identity in Jesus’ name, Amen
Let’s go back to the scripture and finish this word
5. “But so that we don’t cause offense…” WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Imagine, if Jesus really went to the tax collector and told him the Truth. I mean bible Truth, that man would be offended. And it wasn’t His time for the cross yet so he decided to just chill…for now! Well, here’s how the TRUTH would be told…
Mr. Tax Collector, I have no idea why you are asking ME for tax when I Myself am exempt from paying taxes….you see, I am the SON of God…and the children are exempt! Just sayin’
But that might bring some offense, so I am just going to go ahead and pay you.
Mr. Tax Collector, I don’t know if you know this but…
Psalm 50:10, 12b
For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
For the world is Mine, and all its fullness.
Further, the gold is Mine and the silver is Mine…
So, there’s that! But I know you don’t understand what I’m saying so I’m just gonna go ahead and give you my money! LOL He would’ve caused the tax collector to be lost in the weeds of too many parables and He needed to be about the Father’s business, so He just decided to give him the money.
6. Look at how the supernatural provision came “go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; …” Jesus sends Peter to a familiar place. He was already a fisherman so he didn’t need to learn something new. Your provision comes from something you already know. Throw out your line, meaning it will take a little bit of effort on your part. Take the first fish, you will not have to toil all day because Jesus has already put that there for you to catch it. He’s already opened the channel for you. And because you are moving at HIS word and based on HIS instructions, this thing is going to be an easy catch for you. The first fish. You see, while you are not responsible for the bill, somebody has to swipe the credit card, someone has to write the check, someone has to go online and pay the bill. You are responsible for that part…you’re just not responsible for the money coming in to do it! HE is the one that will bring the money and give you the ideas of where and when to cast the line. All you need to do is follow through on the steps to get it done.
I’m pretty sure your worry is not “oh no I have to lift my right hand and swipe the card”. No, that’s not your worry. Your worry is…is there any money on the card?! What Jesus is saying is “I already put that money there for you, now I just need you to pull the card out of your wallet and swipe it”. You are following through on an action and He’s FUNDING it!
7. “open its mouth….” OH MY GOODNESS! This can preach for days. Where’s the provision??? It’s in your mouth. It’s in the words that you are speaking over yourself and your situation. We are in the decade of Pey, which means the words of our mouth carry weight! What you are saying over your situation is everything! Do not speak negatively over your promise. Don’t speak negatively over your provisions. You don’t like your job, stop cursing it!! That’s how God is bringing you provisions now so you better bless that place with your mouth. Don’t bite the hand that feeds ya! BLESS that channel of provisions for as long as it exists. Have a heart of gratitude for all of it. I don’t care how it looks. Speak life! You will not resurrect dry bones with negative speech. Speak life! Speak the word of God over your situation. Call things that are not as though they were. But you won’t know the word to speak until you pick up your bible and read it. Make it a habit to end your evening by reading the scriptures.
The fish in this scripture for me has a double meaning. Fish in dream language means provision, because as a fisherman you catch them and you sell them to make a living. But, fish also means people.
17 Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”
This is what Jesus said to the disciples you used to catch fish before, now I’m going to teach you how to fish for men. Salvation, the souls of men for the Kingdom.
So, the fish – meaning you – has the wealth in its mouth!!! Because this is how you become wealthy. By what you say, by your declarations, the wealth is in your mouth! This is how you win, speak God’s word….it is written “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceed out of the mouth of God” Your provision exists in your declarations which are rooted in God’s word.
Open your mouth! Daughters of Zelophehad
Your provision is in your mouth.
8. “and you will find…” He had to GO in order to find it. When you pray, God will bring you revelation and then you need to apply that revelation by doing something at times before you can reap the fruit of it.
Knowledge + Understanding + Wisdom (Application) = Success.
Sometimes as Christian we can get our head so stuck up in the clouds that we don’t realize that we do have things we need to do right here on earth. You have bills to pay, period the end. Sometimes I see Christians “name it and claim it” and they act like Jesus is going to step out of heaven and do it for them. No, there are practical steps that you need in some situations when you are operating in the earth realm.
What He does, is that He creates a channel to send you the money supernaturally. So when one channel closes (you lost your job), he goes right ahead and opens another one. The job is not your source, JESUS is your source and as long as you are in right standing with Him, then you don’t have to worry. Do not freak out over losing your job, God is just switching the channel. When we pray, He can show us MULTIPLE channels.
When I moved to this country, the first thing I noticed with all my Jewish friends is that all of them had multiple sources of income. Multiple. I never see them sweating because if one thing dries up there was always another. I didn’t grow up seeing this. And, I realized because they have their finances set up like this, they never worried about anything.
What we did as immigrants when we got here is we have multiple job, which is not bad because if you lose one you have the other 2. But here is the problem with that, what if you get sick? Now you have no money coming in. And who wants to do all that toiling? Nobody! So your goal is to pray and ask God to show you sources that make money while you sleep. You put in minimal effort to get it up and running and then don’t have to physically work it. If you get several channels set up like this, even if this one only brings $300, and that one $450 and the other $700, and this one is $850, your job $4000 per month. If you lose your job, you may need to cut back a little, but you still have other money coming in. This thinking is not just for executives and rich people, this is for all of us. This is bible.
“Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both.”
The idea of a seed in the scripture is you put it in the ground (minimal effort) and now you are free to do other things. FREE. No sweating. With the freedom you can explore other channels. Spend more time doing God’s work. The scripture above clearly shows that you are to be thinking this way. Don’t be idle. Pray, ask the Lord and when He shows you, do some research and set them up.
Prayer: Abba Father, is there something I need to do to tap into the finances I need for_________. Show me how to tap into multiple channels for Your provisions. Lead me to these channels, in Jesus name, Amen.
9. “a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for My tax and yours.” And, this is where it get’s good-er!!! Go back to the very beginning of the scripture. What did the tax collector asked for??? Two drachma. He did not ask for Peter’s temple tax. The bill was for Jesus. Which means that all that was needed to be paid was two drachmas, right???? Because if Peter’s bill was due wouldn’t he have asked Peter for his two drachmas too??? Of course!
The tax collector asked for 2 drachmas for Jesus’ temple tax, but when Jesus sent Peter to go get the money from the fish’s mouth He sent him to get 4 drachmas. WHY???? Because, Peter is a son, and….
THE CHILDREN ARE EXEMPT!!!
Peter is free from the responsibility of the bill! Hey Peter, while you’re there grab two drachmas for yourself. This is not your bill to pay.
Mr. Tax Collector, you asked for 2 but I’m going to give you 4, because I’m also picking up Peter’s bill because he’s a son of God, and the children are exempt!!! Notice, his name is no longer Simon, it is now Peter and he now lives under My house, in this new identity I AM is responsible for his bill.
You are covered if you a child of God! You are just a child living under the roof and the covering of your Abba Father’s house. You are a kept woman! You are a kept man! This is not your responsibility! The children of God are exempt! But just so that we won’t bring offense to your electric company by telling them this fact! Let’s go on ahead and pay them! So that your landlord won’t take offense to you telling them that bill isn’t even yours, let’s go ahead and pay it.
But wait, you’re not paying it….YOUR ABBA FATHER IS!!!
Eat the word, until you look like it! This is how you become wealthy!
Now make sure you pay attention to this:
2 Corinthians 9:10
Now the One who provides seed for the sower and bread for food will also provide and multiply your seed and increase the harvest of your righteousness.
You must never forget this when you come into finances. There are two pools of money. One is to be sown and the other is to be eaten.
You cannot eat the money that you are to sow. Notice from the scripture the multiplication comes from the seed. If you didn’t put anything in the ground, there is nothing coming up. This is a spiritual law. If you throw everything into the bread for food pile, there’s nothing coming up for you. It is a spiritual law.
Giving is a HUGE part of financial increase. You will never be able to escape this. I know this is abused in the Christian circles. Totally abused. However, it is a spiritual law. So instead of cringing when you hear this, pray and ask God where the seed needs to be sown.
When God gives you the idea to go get your bread to eat, there is also money there that needs to be sown. Just as when He sent Peter to go get the money for His tax, He told him to get money for Himself.
DO NOT EAT the seed you are to sow. That’s all. It is a spiritual law. That is why rich people get rich, they sow. They are always giving to charities. Even if they’re doing it for a tax write off, it doesn’t matter, it is the principle of giving that is at work for them. When I say spiritual law what I mean is that whether you are saved or unsaved this principle works. Giving generates financial increase all by itself.
This is a channel created by God to bring money into your bank account while you sleep.
Write down GIVING as one of your channels. No toiling necessary. You will never go wrong with this.
I want to be sure you got this….
How do you get your bills paid? In the scripture you just read, where was the money? IN THE MOUTH. YOUR MOUTH. OPEN YOUR MOUTH.
You are the fish. What’s in your mouth?
The problem is the Fish, when you open your mouth what we find is this “I’m broke, I’m getting evicted, I can’t, I lost my job, this inflation is killing me, I’m getting attacked, I can’t pay bills, pray for me to find a husband…I don’t have….(tears and crying) and complaining about the situation” THIS is what is coming out of your fish’s mouth. Do you get it???
YOU are getting what you are saying.
Cause that’s what’s in the fish’s mouth. What is in your mouth?
Please. Catch. The. Revelation.
Your negativity will never resurrect the dry bones. When Ezekiel went to resurrect the dry bones did he harp over and over again that there was no way? He said can these dry bones live and then he began to speak that thing into existence!!! (Ezekiel 37)
4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.” ’ ”
He spoke into what it should be!!! Not what it is, what it should be!!!
Please. Catch. The. Revelation.
Stop speaking your problems, speak the solution! Have you ever gone to a prayer meeting and hear someone pray a non-prayer??? You know they just complain in their prayers and they spend 15 minutes praying one big nothing burger! Nothing! They haven’t even asked for what they want. They spent 15 minutes rehearsing their problems. All they are doing is complaining, and complaining and complaining. Stop doing that!!! If what you are speaking into the spiritual realm is your problems more than you are speaking the solution….this is your problem. What you are sowing into the spirit is what you are reaping.
When the devil came to tempt Jesus what did He say? It is written…..
I am always talking about reading your bible not so that you can feel superior to others. No, it is so that you are equipped to speak what the word says. You need it to succeed. If you don’t read your bible, you have no scripture to back up your declarations. Go look up the scriptures that speaks to your new identity. Find the scriptures that give you what you need.
The second thing is….
You are a trust fund baby. You have generational wealth. You need to step into your true identity in Christ. What the devil has done is messed with our minds and cause us to separate ourselves from our True Identity. We need to OWN our identity. Stop separating yourself from it. Come into oneness with it. It is not who you will be, it is already who you are! OWN IT!
Do you ever see a trust fund baby worrying about their bills? No. They are secure in the fact that the money is there. You need to settle this in your heart, mind and soul. You can know a bible truth but here’s the deal, do you believe it?
What we do, me included, is that when we pray we expect to go to the fish, open the mouth and find $1 million dollars! LOL #noliesweretold
We don’t want to go back when the next bill comes in, we want a lump sum!! When the scripture clearly says “give us this day our daily bread”.
And truth be told, if you are really thinking like a trust fund baby you wouldn’t be looking for $1 million dollars because you don’t need that. Do you need a million dollars NOW? No, you don’t! Even the fact that we are looking for more than what we need is a poverty mindset within itself. Selah. A true trust fund baby just writes a check for what they need it, as they need it, because they know the money is there! You’re not going to write a million-dollar check when your penthouse mortgage is $45,000. Right??? No. You write a claim on your inheritance for what you need… as you need it!!!
Give us this day our daily bread.
If you did that, the accountant or the executor of your will would be calling in a mental health wellness check ” Hello ______, why are you requesting a check for $1 million dollars when you only need to pay your mortgage for $45,000?” Well, I just wanted to make sure the money is there….LOL Are you crazy?! Of course, it is there! Your dad left you a loaded bank account, stop acting like a pauper.
You understand what I’m saying? Somewhere inside you, you need to find rest. You are a child of God and the children are exempt. You have a spiritual bank account that will pay all your bills. That is it. It is settled.
You have to think and act like you already have it. Say no to the scarcity and the poverty mindset. Let tomorrow worry about itself, you have enough TODAY!!! (Matthew 6:34) Praise the Lord.
Simon, you are free. Simonetta, you are free lady! LOL
You know what happens with the repetition of going back over and over again? We get our confidence built up. We become more secure as sons and daughters of the Most High God. Until we enter a place of REST. We literally stop worrying. Because we know He can do it again!!! Praise the Lord.
Prayer for exemption: Abba Father, thank you that You have brought us under Your covering and grafted us into a covenant that allows us to freely enjoy Your provision. Thank you that we no longer need to endlessly strive and worry to receive the finances we need to pay our bills. You have clearly shown through these scriptures that we are exempt from this as Your children. We claim this exemption in the name of Jesus. Abba, today I lift up to you these bills (name the bills) and I present them to You asking for you to bring the finances through whatever channels necessary to pay for them. I enter Your rest and quiet my spirit to listen and follow the instructions that You will give to me today. I loose myself from the responsibility of worrying about how You will do it and cast all the burden of it upon you Jehovah Jireh because I know you care for me. Thank you for giving me a powerful testimony on this word and allowing me to share this revelation with others that are in need of this freedom, teach my tongue to speak Your word and not rehearse my problems as I not only step into my new identity but I OWN it, in Christ in Jesus name, Amen.
So that was the gemstone that I found.
Then about 1 hour later, after I settled down by pray in tongues to process all of this, the Holy Ghost introduced to the gemstone factory!!!!
I became so overwhelmed by this that I had to stop because I thought I was going to pass out if I kept going. Like my heart and spirit wouldn’t be able to take it if I continued so I had to stop and catch my breath. Whew! I was undone. There was an unraveling like I cannot explain it. To this day I haven’t finished this. So I am going to need your help in the comments to finish the post for me.
I started to think, this scripture is about finances and paying your bills. And the reason we are exempt is because we are God’s children. We are exempt from financial responsibility because of the blood of Jesus and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. The curse is broken…. but let me ask you this question, is that all we are exempted from? Did Jesus just die so we could ONLY pay our bills????? Did He declare, tetelestai, “It is finished” for just my finances?
NO! There so much more!!! There’s more!!! We are living so far below the standard of which Christ paid His life to give us. We are nowhere close to living in the freedom and the abundance of being His exempted children. In our new identity we are a PECULIARLY WEALTHY PEOPLE. Let me introduce you to the gemstone factory!!!
