Quote: Lance Wallnau – “Quit Your Job”

17 Jan

Midnight Watch: PROPHETIC WORD for 2014.  QUIT your job.

Yes.  I heard this and strongly urge you to quit your job.  Quitting my job - Lance Wallnau

I am not saying you should “leave” your job.  You should quit working the way you do.

Read this to the end and you’ll see the secret to untold wealth.  Something has been holding you back – and it’s icy grip is going to be broken in 2014.

Since the fall of Adam, man has toiled under the curse of earning a living by sweat, toil and labor.

In Genesis 3:18-20 God said: “Both thorns and thistles it (earth) shall bring forth for you…In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread.”

JESUS DEFIES THE CURSE
Right up against this we have the splendid defiance of the Galilean Rabbi, Jesus of Nazareth, who refused to toil and labor for bread.  Instead He multiplied it in His hands, paid taxes by a last minute coin found in a fishes mouth and funded his disciples families for the duration of their three year training by starting them off with a miraculous boat sinking load of fish.

Jesus defiance wasn’t toward God, His defiance was against the tyranny of the curse that would no longer have legal authority over His followers because it had NO authority or claim over Him.  He was the “second Adam”…the last Adam, the start of a new order of Overcomers. (1 Cor 15;45)

This Jesus is the one who commanded us to “not worry about food, or drink, or clothing, or shelter…”For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father KNOWS that ye have need of all these things.”

What did he say?  “All these things do the GENTILES seek”…The Gentiles?  The UNBELIEVER’S seek these things.

But how is it today?

DESPERATE CHRISTIANS
Christian’s are by in large some of the most financially desperate and neurotically “End Time” preoccupied people I meet.  Churches and ministries constantly needing money and shaking down anxious followers for the means to “change the world?”  With what message?  Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses and Muslims aren’t branded by offerings and financial crisis.  We are.

In fact it’s worse.  The “Gentiles” who know not God, the unbelievers, are actually the wealth barons of Wall Street, the entertainment industry and the politically connected.  It is the rich unbeliever’s who eat up the “sweat” of others.

WHATS COMING TO AMERICA AND THE WORLD?
In the midst of the New Year, 5774 or whatever you want to call it, the most anxious people on earth are the believers who are preoccupied with the future…what’s going to happen next?  Will there be a collapse of the economic system?  What judgment is coming on my nation – TOMORROW!?!?

But who are the ONLY ones who were told “TAKE NO THOUGHT ABOUT TOMORROW”?  Believers!

That’s why you need to QUIT your job and START your ministry!  Your work is now your ministry.  It isn’t your vehicle for transforming sweat into bread – it’s the field God has called you to OCCUPY like an Adam who NEVER SINNED.  In Christ you are now free from the tyranny of the curse.  You are the righteousness of God Himself, “in Christ.”  Before Adam fell, the earth, the environment around him cooperated with him to create flourishing prosperity.

Make your work your garden and commune with God as you produce results no “Gentile” can compete with.

HERE IS YOUR TICKET OUT OF THE ASYLUM
What is the #1 condition Jesus laid down for this “no thought” promise to be activated?  After He said “don’t act like a gentile,” He gave the KEY…

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”  “ADDED” – not acquired, purchased or extracted.

Adam and all his “gentile” unbelieving sons have NO claim to this “no thought,” “no toil,” “no anxiety” life.

Seek to use your employment as a platform to extend and expand the dominion of heaven over earth.  That’s what “seek ye first the kingdom of God” now invites you into.

If believer’s would do this in their current sphere of assignment they would progressively move to the epicenter of influence and liberate wealth from the hands of those who control the currency of decision making that controls nations.

THIS MOVE HAS BEGUN
The mandate of the last generation of second Adam offspring is not to vote out the ungodly opposition, but to convert them to the superior quality of life and superior results that Jesus manifests.  The earth itself will work with you, for it longs for this millennial generation, this 7M Gen to become the manifestation of the SONS of God.  (Ro 8: 19) Note – its “sons” – a company of the elect demonstrating the coming rule of the millennial King, Jesus of Nazareth, THE SON of the Living God.

The Holy Spirit is teaching us how to pray into this new day.  Don’t let the weakness of your condition dominate you.
(Ro 8:26)  This really is YOUR FINEST HOUR.

Pass this on—-share it!

Quote: Jesus Wore The Crown of Thorns For You

23 May

“And the soldiers twisted a crown of thorns and put it on His head…” – John 19:2

If hard work is the formula for prosperity, then everyone who works hard should be prosperous.  But this is certainly not the case.  Many people who work very hard are still in lack!

I am not advocating laziness.  What I am saying is that working hard by the sweat of your brow is not how God’s provision comes.  In fact, if you have to work overtime all the time and are stressed out, you are probably operating under the curse.

What curse is that? It is this curse: “In the sweat of your face, you shall eat bread…” (Genesis 3:19).  And it refers to the stress, struggle and anxieties that come with working hard and yet producing little.  Now, work itself is not a curse since God gave Adam work before the fall—Adam was to tend the garden of Eden.  It was only after he sinned that the land was cursed and it brought forth thorns, and man had to toil to eat of it. (Genesis 3:17–18)

But praise God, Jesus wore the thorns on His head to show you that He has borne this curse for you and redeemed you from it.  He wore the crown of thorns so that you can work stress-free and yet have the results.  You don’t have to be worried and stressed out day and night like the people of the world just to get ahead in life.  Your heavenly Father can get you there without the worries and stress. (Matthew 6:31–33)

Beloved, every curse that was supposed to fall on your head fell on Jesus’ head, typified by the crown of thorns.  He wore the crown of thorns for you so that you can have peace of mind.  He wore the crown of thorns for you and took your curse so that you can wear the crown of glory and take His righteousness, and all the benefits of that righteousness!

Today, don’t labor and toil like the people of the world. Instead, expect to see the blessings of God come into your life without blood, sweat and tears because Jesus wore the crown of thorns for you!

Quote: The Good Life Without The Sweat

25 Apr

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they? – Matthew 6:26

Most people are of the opinion that the good life does not happen without hard work and buckets of sweat.  They believe that to achieve success, you first need to have this educational certificate, that professional qualification, this particular job and that many years of hard work.  I have good news for you: God has a better way.

We all must work, but the world wants you to believe that there is a natural process of sowing, reaping and gathering, accompanied by waiting, toiling and stress, before the good life actually comes.  But God says, “My people do not need to go through this natural process to enjoy the good life for they are not of this world’s system.  They can operate out of My economy and I can give them the good life straightaway!”

In the same way that God feeds the birds which do not go through the sow-then-reap-then-gather system of the world, He wants to and will do much more for you!  Your heavenly Father wants you to know the generosity of His heart toward you and how much He wants to make you successful.

Today, God wants you to know that you are not of the world’s system.  You are of the kingdom of God—the same kingdom that feeds the birds that do not toil, but simply trust their Creator for all their provisions in life.  Be convinced that you are of more value to your heavenly Father than the birds, and let Him give you the good life without the toiling and laboring of the world.
