This prophetic word is titled Time Wasters.
Who is this word for? Everyone. This has to do with the wealth transfer and also how you can progress in 5784.
I was interceding for the body of Christ and went into a vision, I saw someone opening their wallet and what I saw inside was burnt up bills. Imagine a stack of money – bills – but they are burnt so that it is just black, soot, burnt up bills filling their wallet.
I was very intrigued by this because I have never seen anything like this before.
Your wallet cannot hold unlimited amounts of coins and bills, at some point it may have too many things in it so that you can’t put anything else in it without removing some of the contents.
From what I was seeing, this wallet was full of this black burnt up paper bills so that nothing else could hold in the wallet. I said to the Lord “what is this?”
Then the Lord said “Time Wasters”
I started to pray against these time wasters asking the Lord to remove them and I saw the Lord send an angel with a leaf blower. What is the purpose of a leaf blower? It blows away dead things, leaves when the season has changed, when leaves have lived out their life span to make room for new, and create a clean slate.
The angel used the leaf blower and blew out the burnt up bills from out of the wallet so that the wallet was now empty and ready to receive new fresh bills.
Why are the time wasters in the wallet? This has to do with your finances and also your time. We are in a season of the wealth transfer and there is a possibility that your wallet may be full of time wasters. Thereby leaving no space for the wealth to come in. What can you do with burnt up money in a wallet? Nothing. They have no use.
As I began to pray in tongues about this to find out how the time wasters got there in the first place and what exactly are the time wasters, the Lord broke it down for me.
- A Jack of all trades and a master of none.
What that means is that you are busy doing many things that you haven’t mastered one thing. You are not an expert in anything because you’re too busy doing everything. Your lack of focus has diluted your talents, gifts and abilities. You can even dilute your finances. Find out what God wants you to do, and do that. You are spending too much time doing things that are complete time wasters and the thing that you should be doing, you’re not doing it and so you are not properly aligned to receive the wealth transfer.
Before you start the prayer get your notebook out and your pen, or some device where you can jot down notes. You are only to write what the Lord brings to your mind now and everything else stays off the list.
Lord, please bring to my mind right now what it is that I should be working on. Start writing a list. If it is not coming to your mind right now, forgetaboutit! Anything after the first 3 things is more than likely you, and not God.
Ecclesiastes 5:16-17 NLT
And this, too, is a very serious problem. People leave this world no better off than when they came. All their hard work is for nothing—like working for the wind. Throughout their lives, they live under a cloud—frustrated, discouraged, and angry.
2. Investing time and energy.
I’ve shared before that I was working on something that I was told would have a really good return business wise, only to find out after wasting years working on it that God was not into it. I started this before I was saved and really needed to ask Him about it after I was born again, but never did. As a result I was wasting hours of each day working on something that did not have the blessing of God. A complete time waster and that is time I will never get back. You may be thinking, how is this different from the first point? Well, perhaps it’s the only thing you’re doing and you do have the time to do it. However, what is the point of doing something that God is not going to bless no matter how much time, effort and energy you put into it? Ask God if He’s into it. If you were doing 10 things and you decided to get rid of all of them and leave only one thing, but God is not backing that one thing…you have zero. Ask God before investing time and energy into anything.
Lord, is there something I am working on or involved with that is wasting my time?
Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
3. Focusing on today instead of the future.
I completely understand that you have to pay your bills and so you may take a job, sign a contract because you are only thinking about the bills that you have to pay now. As I was praying in tongues the Lord brought it to my attention that you would be doing much better if you thought about your future and made decisions based on the future instead of the “right now”. The right now, is temporal. You would make better decisions if you could just silence the voice in your head that is saying “I need this right now!” When you focus on the future and where you are going you will become a better strategist of your own life. You will avoid making bad decisions based on short sightedness. Think about your future so that you make better decisions for your family, your children, your purpose in life, your job, your career, your clients, the type of business you choose to do and even where you choose to live.
The Lord says you’re “doing things that waste time and doesn’t grow wealth. Time wasters. Too focused on today and not looking to the future.” These short sighted decisions are what will fill up your wallet leaving no room for your future.
I believe there is a way that God can have you do some short term things alongside a long term plan and this is what you need to think about
A blessing that came out of going into lockdown over Covid, is that it gave many people a “time out” they had time to get away from the daily grind of the job and they thought about what they really want to do compared to what they were actually doing. This is what caused them to make other choices after the lockdown. I don’t believe everyone just turned lazy and didn’t want to return to work, No! A large portion of people chose to do something else with their lives because they realized they didn’t enjoy what they were doing.
I know you may be thinking I’d like to make a change here but I don’t know how to do it. Let me first say that change is not comfortable, it sometimes requires risk, and comes with fear. This is why most people don’t make a change. But if you really want to make a change, I believe the Lord will provide you with a door of opportunity to do so. HOWEVER, get yourself ready to be uncomfortable, feeling like you’re walking off a cliff and being afraid. Yes, it’s not a good feeling but if God leads you to it, you can do it.
Lord, I need a change from this dead end situation that I am in, please open a door of opportunity for me and light the way so that I can see it clearly. Give me the faith to believe You can transition me into this and the grace to follow through. I bind fear and loose power, love and a sound mind, in Jesus name, Amen.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Don’t you know people can waste your time if you allow it? Yes. There are people who will waste your time on purpose because they knew their intention from the very beginning. Then there are those who will waste your time unintentionally because they don’t even know they are not ready to move forward. Think of this as a person who goes to look at a house when they are not even in the market to buy a house they are just curious. Then there’s the one who is looking for a house to buy tries to make an offer on the house but ends up not qualifying for it. Their intention was the buy but they were just not financially ready for that house so they have to back away. These are two different people.
Intentional time wasters and unintentional time wasters. What they have in common is that they are both time wasters and you need to discern it, quickly. Why do you think realtors ask for pre-qualification letters? Because nobody has time for looky loos and people who can’t qualify for the mortgage. They would rather spend their time with people who are serious buyers and ready to make a commitment to move forward.
Manage your life the same way.
I was traveling to a city once and someone I knew asked if I could visit her daughter’s home while I was there to help her get rid of some demons living in her home. I knew the daughter but I was much closer to the mom and actually agreed to doing it because of the mom.
When I got to the house I could tell from entering her house that these demons were not going to leave. How did I know this? Her house was FULL of stuff that was demonically charged – new age, borderline witchcraft, many pictures on the walls, way too many little figurines and keepsakes. I didn’t know what was worst walking under the dream catcher to get inside the house, finding the largest amethyst crystal I’ve ever seen in my life at the center of her sitting room or rounding a corner to come face to face, within inches, to an eye level upside down cross!
She had a justification for every single piece “you know, the disciples were crucified upside down” Oh, I see. The gargoyle wind chimes throughout her garden “these are replicas of the ones at Notre Dame in Paris, you know the church?”. Oh, I see. I realized that if I was going to go through my usual house cleansing prayer by the time I was finished 1/2 of the contents of her house would be in the dumpster and the garbage collector may need to make 2 trips to clear it out. That much stuff! I also discerned she would never throw away that much. It was just not going to happen because she was too attached to it. I had to ask her where she was buying it all, she told me she got most of it from a close friend who owns a gift shop, who is a deliverance minister and her prayer partner for the last 2 years. Eureka! Then she says “I think the two of you would get along great. You should meet her while you’re in town”. Oh, I see. #YouMustNotKnowBoutMe
Immediately I knew it was a complete waste of time but I had already told the mom I would try to help her. Just so that you know, depending on the size of the house this could take 5 hours but I had zero intentions of doing it because I knew it was going nowhere. I asked to use the restroom so that I could get alone with the Lord to figure out how to get out of this. How do I leave this house and not do what I told them I was there to do? He told me to just say a simple prayer so they wouldn’t feel like I wrote them off as a lost cause. She was just not ready. I told them after I prayed to go get the items in the house that they felt was bringing in the demons, she grabbed ONE item. LOL. Sorry, I laughed but I was thinking to myself “honey, it’s gonna take A LOT more than that!” I was ready to throw half her house into the dumpster and she only thought ONE thing was off in that house. Sigh.
You should’ve seen the death stare she gave her husband when he went and got one of her little chachkies and said “I think this one should go it has always given me the creeps”. LOL. If looks could kill! LOL.
She basically just reconfirmed, through her actions, what I discerned. With her mouth, she wanted to be free but with her actions, she wasn’t ready. If I walked through her house for 5 hours I would’ve waste my time, she would’ve waste her time, her husband would’ve waste his time and her mother would’ve waste her time. 4 x 5 = 20 hours of wasted time!!!! That none of us will get back and she still wouldn’t be free of the demons because she wasn’t ready. Nope! Not doing it. Within 30 minutes I was done and out of there.
15 So then, be careful how you walk, not as unwise people but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
People are NOT a waste of time, people who are still going through their process WILL waste your time.
You cannot want someone to be delivered more than they want to be delivered. Do you know what happens to someone when you give them a partial deliverance? They are worse when you see them the next time because when the demons you kicked out come back, they come back with 7 more and then your next attempt to deliver them is worse than the first time. (Matthew 12:43-45)
If you’re wondering why I am sharing these details, well, it’s been almost 15 years and the mom’s already gone home to be with the Lord. I think it’s just a good example to share of meeting someone that you want to help… that wants you to help them…but they are just not ready to be helped. Hope that makes sense.
In my earlier years in ministry, I spent over a year going back and forth with someone to different deliverance ministers trying to get her delivered, only to realize in the end she doesn’t want to get delivered because one of her demons was making her money and she chose the money over her freedom. That one, I wouldn’t call it a time waster, I call it a lesson learnt. Now I know better. I pre qualify people and move them along much faster.
If you think that’s harsh you should read John 5:1-9.
Pick up your mat and walk. Jesus was not even paying attention to the excuses he was giving for being in the same boat for 38 years. All He wanted to know is if this man wants to be healed. Now, what is a healed person doing walking around with a mat? He doesn’t need the mat. The mat needs to go into the dumpster.
But, I’ve had it for 38 years and it has sentimental value…. Oh, I see.
Jesus went out of His way to heal him on the Sabbath, He wasn’t supposed to do that because the religious Jews would’ve gone after Him to persecute Him. Do you think this lame man didn’t know that? SURE he did! When they asked him who told him to pick up his mat and walk, he didn’t know who did it because Jesus healed him and slipped away into the crowds because He didn’t want the religious Jews to come after him.
But, Jesus later found the man and gave him simple instructions to KEEP his deliverance.
“Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.”
It wasn’t other people’s fault, or who couldn’t put him in the pool that kept him bound up. No, his own sin put him in that position. Like I said before, if you don’t completely get delivered and stay away from the things that brought those demons there in the first place, they will come back worse!
Now since Jesus sat and spoke with him, he now knew that it was Jesus who healed him. What does he do next?
15 The man went away and told the Jewish leaders that it was Jesus who had made him well.
16 So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute him.
Sigh. Now imagine he’s there for 38 years needing healing, someone comes along and heals him and what does he do??? Tells the authorities, when he knows no healing was supposed to take place on the Sabbath and this was going to create a problem for Jesus! WHY would he do that??!!
Now you know why he was bound up for 38 years. He’s got ISSUES. And obviously needs to still be delivered from YouTalkTooMuchItis.
It is important for you to discern where someone is in their process so that you can step away and allow them the time they need to go through it. The minute they are fully processed, or they get to the end of themself, they are now ready. Until such time, you are wasting your time. This not only goes for deliverance, but anything when you are dealing with others.
You cannot change people, people change when they see the need to change. Attempting to change someone who doesn’t want to change will lead you down a path of witchcraft into control and manipulation. Back up.
You cannot save everyone. Only the ones who want to be saved and are ready. If you have a savior complex, you will spend years wasting your time. You ever try to lead someone to the Lord who isn’t ready to receive Christ? Complete waste of time.
Stop trying to convince someone to do something they are just not ready to do nor do they want to do it.
When they are ready, they will reach out for you and then you can help them, until such time you best leave them alone. Use your time to work on things you can accomplish today. Discern.
Stop wasting your time investing in people that are not going anywhere. If they are not willing to move into the first gear from a parked position, it is time for you to move on.
People are not a waste of time. However, people who are still going through their process will waste your time.
Time is money, hence the wallet. When you waste your time with time wasters that is time you could have used investing in the things that God wanted you to do. You need to recognize them and cut them loose. Only then can God fill your wallet with the things that are from Him.
Once the angel with the leaf blower came and blew away that burnt up paper, I saw the Lord put just ONE bill in the wallet. Then I saw the one bill start to multiply on its own. Until there was a large stack of cash in the wallet. Have you ever seen those bill counters they use in the bank? That is how the money just started to flying out of the one bill in the wallet at rapid speed. The one bill from the Lord create more money because the time wasters were removed. There was room to receive it.
Clear out the old dead things, so that you can make room for the new.
Behold, I am going to do something new,
Now it will spring up;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert.
Where there was once dead things, barrenness, now there will now be something new. Abundance.
