We have just come out of two powerful meetings with Revivalist Keith Miller. He came in power, dominion, might and authority. He released the Word in demonstration and presence.
Power = “exousia (G1849) = power, authority, right, liberty, jurisdiction, strength.”
Dominion = “kyriotes (G2963) = dominion, power lordship, one who possesses dominion, (collectively: rulers -government.)”
Might = “dynamis (G1411) = strength power, ability, inherent power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts fort; power for performing miracles; moral power and excellence of soul; power and influence which belong to riches and wealth; power and resources arising from numbers; power consisting in or resting upon armies, forces, hosts.”
Eph.1: 19-23: What is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. And has put all things under his feet and gave him to be head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all.
As our monetary system continues to be under attack, I want to address our power, dominion, might and authority over “influences which belong to riches and wealth.”
De-Dollarization: More countries seek alternatives to the U.S. Dollar. “Twenty-three countries (60% of the world’s GDP) are setting up swap lines which bypass the dollar and SWIFT, which is the dollar based financial system.”
Prophet Joshua Giles in his recent book, Prophetic Forecast published in 2022 states by vision and words spoken to him by God concerning “Monetary Systems.”
“Money is attracted to your assignment.”
“Everything you need will be attracted to or added to your purpose as you go. If you don’t have the money you need, it is because you are not carrying out your assignment. Money is attracted to your assignment.”
Keith Miller spoke a word to me and to this congregation that He felt like we were to begin having regular Friday and Saturday meetings. This is not the first time I have had this word spoken to me this year. I could tell you a list of reasons why this would be a challenge. Faith works on what God speaks, not on the challenges to fulfill His word. I will continue to pray into this and know I can trust God to bring it to past and show me the path. There is nothing else to be said about that. Please do not speak to me the negative reasons why we should not have monthly Friday and possibly Saturday night meetings.
Joshua Giles: There will be a time in the near future where the money system as we know it will be completely changed. Digital currencies will run the world. The U.S. dollar will no longer be the leading currency, and the world’s, and the world’s economies will be in travail. But the Lord showed me that before all these things occur, the literal faces on American money will change. This will be a foreshadowing and sign of a steep decline and a swift change that is coming to the economy… Money is an overriding force in this natural world. To a degree, it controls where the average people can go, where they can live, what they can drive and what they can eat. Using it is just part of life for us. Money in and of itself is simply a tool given to fulfill certain tasks in life…
The force ruling the monetary systems of the4 world is an evil entity called Mammon. Jesus in His earthly ministry revealed that this false god of greed, money and material possessions is attached to a lust for things.
Matthew 6:24: No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon.
In the original biblical text of this verse, Jesus used the word mammonas, a Greek term of Aramaic origin. It literally means “confidence in money.” It refers to riches in the sense of their being opposed to the true and living God. Some scholars believe that Mammon was an ancient Syrian or Chaldean (Babylonian) god similar to the Greek god, Plutus. Mammon is a demonic spirit or principality that amasses gain through fleshly and worldly means. It is an evil spirit of lust and excess that governs the minds of the people who serve it.
Not all money and riches are from the true and living God. Some is ill-gotten gain or is funding in accordance with a demonic agenda. If a person grows in sin and money at the same time, you can be sure that the riches that individual is receiving are not from God.
The epic battle between light and darkness is a battle between masters. Mammon runs the world systems… Unfortunately, in this world, we have seen that people are not valued, but making money is. In the coming days, you will see God bringing a separation between masters. Those who are serving this false god, Mammon will bear the corrupt fruit of it. Those who are serving the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will bear the fruit of righteousness.
Money in and of itself is not evil. It is the love of money that corrodes the soul. A lot of people are chasing money, only to find themselves empty and void. Money cannot fulfill a person. Money cannot heal or restore someone. Money simply takes on the heart of the individual who holds it.
Money is an amplifier. It amplifies what is in the soul. If a person is deceitful, add money and his or her deceiving ways will increase. If a person is prideful, add money and he or she will be even more arrogant. Likewise, if a person’s heart is pure, money will amplify that pure heart to others. If a person is compassionate, money will provide new avenues through which he or she can give. Money is no more than a tool that amplifies us.
Life is about whom you serve. It is imperative that as a believer in Jesus Christ, you make it crystal clear that you are only serving Him. The time will come in the near future when many people lose massive amounts of money. I saw in a vision a stock market crash that would shake the nations…
Jesus also says to seek God’s righteousness. Righteousness is a Greek word meaning ‘equitable character, justification or to be in right standing with God.’ We can only seek righteousness by fully submitting ourselves to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. He has to be our Lord, our Master, our Ruler, our everything! At that point only does He say, ‘and all these things shall be added to you’…
In the vision from God about monetary systems changing, I saw a deconstruction come to the cryptocurrency market… God said to me, ‘It is deconstruction to bring forth a reconstruction.’ …The Lord said to me, ‘Look to the future, because the marks will expand.’
The cryptocurrencies will become the wave of the future…The Asian nations will lead in this. It will take the wisdom of God to navigate these changes in order for one’s investments to be unscathed…
The Spirt of the Lord said to me, there will be a massive wealth transfer to God’s Kingdom agents. This will be confounding to many, because during the famine and economic shifts, God’s remnant will prosper and thrive.
Haggai 2:8: The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine, say he LORD of hosts. This verse connects wealth to an army term, Lord of Hosts i.e. the Lord of the armies of Heaven.
Wealth and warfare are often connected. There are angels that release wealth to the people of God at His Word. God controls the nations’ economies. The gold is His. The silver is His, and all things in and upon the earth.
As a believer, you will not have to worry about your provision. It will be taken care of. There will be supernatural financial provision coming. God is releasing angels of wealth to facilitate the transfer.
In addition, the Lord is going to deal with wicked people who have oppressed and mistreated others. As the judgment of God is released upon them, their wealth will fall into the hands of the righteous. In the coming months and years, we will see Proverbs 13:22 manifest in the earth. ‘The wealth of the wicked is reserved for the righteous.’ The next couple of decades will reveal a massive wealth transfer. This will show up in the form of money, land and resources…
Kingdom citizens, we are in this world, but we are not of this world. Just as business is transacted in the natural, we are called to transact business in the heavens. There are seven levels of (Heavenly) currency that we must learn to use wisely. Money is the lowest form. Discovering and properly utilizing each of these currencies will empower us to navigate the purpose of God with ease and with grace.
Seven Levels of Currency (Pg. 90)
1. Money ---the lowest currency in the earthly realm. It governs business and trade.
2. Communication – the currency of relationships. It helps build covenants, alliances, and partnerships.
3. Wisdom – the currency of governments. It creates systems, categories and subcategories to establish order.
4. Influence (favor) – the currency of kings. It is the ability to impact the hearts and minds of others; it is the power of divine persuasion.
5. Faith --- the currency of the Kingdom of God. Supporting and defending God’s decisions for a person’s life through his or her applications of the Word, this currency can move mountains.
6. Glory – the currency of heaven. The riches in glory reveal expressions of who God is. There are about a doze Hebrew words for glory that each express a portion of God’s goodness. Sin causes a person to fall short of this currency.
7. Time --- The currency of man. Appointments, dates and divine moments all come under this category of currency. Believers have the authority to redeem (buy back) this currency through salvation. This currency, time, is Satan’s downfall because the bible says he has a short time and then he will be cast into the lake of fire (Rev. 12;12; 20:10).
Philippians 4:19: And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus
Our provision and supply are only found in the presence of the Lord. He promises in His word to take care of His children. No matter the economic shifts that occur, we will be firmly positioned under heaven’s economy. All our needs will be supplied. This is a prophetic declaration for your life. Receive it, believe it and walk in it.”
As noted by quotations, this is a quote from the book, Prophetic Forecast by Joshua Giles, published by Chosen Books, 11400 Hampshire Avenue South, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 55438.
We will continue in chapter 7 this evening, “The Days of Joseph Return.”
