Contagious Reformation

As believers we do trade our time, talents, treasure and our very lives for something much better… It’s not a sacrifice, it’s a bargain that we trade for in wisdom to “increase” our spiritual and natural portfolio.

Signs, Wonders and Cash Flow

The video is here. One of the needs of our hearts is to know that God’s favor is going with us. We can put our hand to the plow of our life’s work for a season, but our heart is always asking the question, “Is God really in this?” Instead of quieting that question, we...

Wealth Creation

The Video is here. Helping people to make a connection with their heart and purpose in the Kingdom isn’t theoretical or just theological. Dreams come true when we connect our heart’s desires with our vocation and cash flow. One of the failure points of counseling,...

Ideas That Have Legs

The Heart of Profit (2)

If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks.  19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes life merry, but money is the answer for everything.  20 Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because...

Mystical Poverty

It’s a little surprising, in the political landscape of our day, that wealth and wealthy people are being categorically demonized. Greed and corruption do make headlines, but those errors are more present in poverty than wealth. When we look for the roots of our...

Dreams and the Ability to Produce Wealth

But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today. Deut 8:18  NIV Money is a tool – People can get entangled in the love of money, but the honest...

Struggling or Strategizing

Why are people struggling? – There is an amazing phenomenon in the Kingdom called “seasons.” When God is doing something, we all can feel it and taste it and usually experience it. I’ve experienced loss, and when I look around I see some of my friends are experiencing...

Learning to Stand

Sit, Walk, Stand – I love the progression of maturity in Ephesians. First we’re seated with Christ, second we learn to walk with Him, and finally we learn to stand in our inheritance. Normally we think of having to attain or accomplish something to achieve our...

Things I Learned in Debtors Prison

Going through a financial test is like living in the Promised Land and going back to Egypt for vacation. The good news is that I’ve learned a few things, and the Lord nudged me in the sense that He’s redeeming some lessons out of this season. Kings live and rule and...

Sowing for a Resurrection

It’s bad – the news media and the prophetic camp are having a feeding frenzy on the dire US and world economy. In the US, we tax 2.2T and borrow money so that we can spend 3.5T. That’s bad enough, but every year we spend more. Other nations have similar issues, so...

Your Spiritual Wealth Thermostat

Dreams Come True Part 2

Lack of words – I’m dreaming about the newly saved business men and women in Poland and Ukraine. We have no language that conveys the importance of their marketplace ministry. If ministry occurs, we call it church… mega church, community church, house church, cell...

Cash Flow

Wayne Thomas created a template in EXCEL that I would like to share with you. Kings convert money into ministry. We are fluent in the use and stewardship of money and we know how to multiply it. For Kings, managing money is as important as their faithfulness to their...

Goals That Overflow

Fish or fisherman – We all have desires and aspirations. Some of us even have goals written down. Why is it that some people seem to have an ability to create wealth and others don’t? There is even a political movement that concludes this scenario is unfair and wealth...

When Kings Get Drunk

Learning to drink – In 1995 Sue and I went back to Toronto to the Airport Vineyard to catch an outpouring… there were meetings six nights a week and people were there from at least 60 different nations. Our congregation was glad to see me go; and to some degree pushed...
