In August of 2022, I had a vision. I saw a great dust storm in the distance. It was rushing towards me. As it got closer, I realized it was gold dust. People were running into their homes to hide.
Then the Holy Spirit revealed this is God’s provision for the end-time harvest rushing towards us. We are to stand and receive it, not run from it.
When the Israelites left Egypt, they were given loads of silver and gold from the unrighteous. Not because they wanted to give; it was a move of God.
Many times in the Bible, you’ll find the Israelites collecting the spoils after winning a battle by the hand of God. Once again, God will cause the ungodly to turn over their riches to the righteous.
We will win this war in America and collect all the spoils. God has redeemed America!
This vision was a simple call to prepare for end times wealth. Because if we don’t prepare, we’ll run from the miraculous provision.
We can’t miss this. God needs these resources in our hands so we can accomplish His will on earth during these last days.
After my vision of the gold dust storm, the Holy Spirit gave me the interpretation. Here it is:
“There is a great provision for my people. I need you to receive it and not reject it. You are the ones that I can trust with it because your hearts are pure, and your motives are right. You will know exactly what you need to do with it.”
You may be thinking, “Why would you not receive a wealth transfer?” Well, there are many reasons.
Some will be tempted to reject it because it will be something you didn’t work for. We will be harvesting where we didn’t plant. And that’s a challenge for those who want to earn their wealth.
Others will be tempted to reject it because it seems too good to be true. And you’d rather hold on to your skepticism than receive from God.
There will even be some who are tempted to reject it because you don’t need it. You’ve been living in God’s blessing of abundance for quite some time, and you’ve settled in the level of wealth you live in.
Expand Your Capacity to Receive
Let’s deal specifically with the third issue. Almost all of us need to expand our capacity to receive.
You confirmed it last week when I invited you to receive a financial breakthrough. Only five people responded who wanted to break through to the next level of financial provision.
Of course, I probed you a bit and got you to respond. But we need to become a people who immediately respond, “YES!”, when the Holy Spirit invites us to come up higher.
It’s easy to settle into the level of wealth we live in. Our needs are taken care of. We have a little extra to have fun. Maybe we even have some solid investments going.
This applies to more people than you think. It isn’t just those who are making six figures a year. This is everyone who has what it takes to maintain the lifestyle you have chosen.
I’ve been in this category most of my adult life. Back when we made $30,000 a year between the two of us, all the way to today, where my business gives me a six-figure income.
At every income level, I’ve settled. We had food and shelter. We always gave our 10% tithe to the church. We were good!
But, over and over, the Lord has rebuked me for settling and helped me move on to the next level.
For example, if I had settled as a solopreneur when I was working by myself and generating a nice income, I would have never grown the business to provide for employees as well.
Not only that but as my income grows, my generosity grows! That’s what I love about giving 10%. Your generosity grows with your income. If not a percentage giver, that tends not to happen.
Generosity is great. It really is the joy of abundance. But I don’t want you to get the idea that God doesn’t want to bless you along the way.
So many people have a hard time with this. They get upset when someone at a different level of wealth buys a new house, or a car, or whatever it is. And you think things like, “They should have given that money to the poor!”
This might hurt a little, but if you have thoughts like that, you’re the one with the problem, not them. The root of those types of comments is jealousy. You want their wealth because you think you could do it better.
Let me release you right now. When you get to heaven, God will not hold you accountable for how someone else spent their money. So, just let it go. Don’t concern yourself with it at all.
Let me show you something else that will bring you freedom:
Proverbs 10:16 NLT – The earnings of the godly enhance their lives, but evil people squander their money on sin.
If you are enhancing your life with your wealth, you are in good company with the godly. God is pleased when you love and care for your family with your wealth.
Yes, be generous. And yes, enhance your life. It isn’t one or the other. God has more than enough to handle both.
Have you settled?
So my question to you is, have you settled? I’ve found myself in this place TOO many times.
A little over seven years ago, I stumbled upon a house on Zillow that was like a dream come true. But it was just outside my capacity to receive.
So I went by myself to drive by it. I didn’t want Beth to know that I was dreaming outside of our comfort zone. But when I got there, something connected in my spirit. I knew it was for us.
So I took the risk and told Beth about it. And then we went to look at it. Beth had her list of desires, and I had mine. This house met all of them down to the last detail.
I wanted a house in the trees that had gigabit internet. Good luck, right? Well, this house had both. It was in a neighborhood but backed a green belt full of dense, huge trees.
Only one problem. I thought that the price was too much. We could do it, but it would be irresponsible. After much stressing about the numbers, we made an offer because I knew God wanted us there.
We got the house, lived there for five years, and the house payment was never an issue. Actually, we ended up doubling our payment so we could pay it off faster.
Looking back, God used this house to expand my capacity to receive. If I had settled where it was more comfortable instead of following where God was leading me, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I want to clarify that this isn’t something I tried to make happen. It was a Spirit-led transaction. I wouldn’t have done it without the prodding of the Holy Spirit.
After this, Beth and I started looking for a house on some land. Our desires changed over the years, and neighborhood life was no longer where we wanted to be.
We wanted to raise horses and chickens and cattle. We wanted to be a part of solving the food problems we face today, and we wanted our kids to learn the value of working on a farm.
I don’t know how many properties we looked at. We went to Romona, Ochelata, Talala, and Oologah. Lots of great properties, but a bit too far from church life.
For over a year, we kept an eye on every new listing that came up and tortured my mom, our realtor, by having her show us all the ones that piqued our interest.
Finally, we found a house on 17 acres, only a mile from our neighborhood house. Cross-fenced with a pond and a garden, it was the perfect house for raising farm animals. It even had a pool!
Only one problem. It was a three bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath house. We have five kids and were hoping for something a bit bigger. But we went to look at it anyway.
I already knew the land was gorgeous because I had driven by it many times. Actually, just a few weeks before it went on the market, I was driving down the road and said, “Lord, I’d love to live on this street. It’s beautiful and still close to Owasso.”
So the land, check, exactly what we want. The house, well, we went to see it with an open mind.
As soon as I walked in, I had a connection in my spirit. I knew, “This is home.” I had no idea how the three-bedroom thing would work out, but I knew it would.
So I went home and ran the numbers. Land is not cheap when it’s only a few miles from town. I found the right number, and it was $100,000 less than they were asking.
I tortured my mom again and asked her to put in this offer. Surprisingly, they agreed to our offer. Not only that, but they were happy about it.
So far, so good. I didn’t really have to expand my capacity to receive just yet. The purchase price landed where I wanted it to be. We had a lot of equity in our home. Everything was good.
And then, a few days after listing our neighborhood home for sale, I heard the spirit of God say, “Keep both houses.”
I know the Lord’s voice, and it was definitely His, but my reasoning took over instantly.
“That’s ridiculous! Why would I keep both? That would be a bad steward. What’s our current home going to do? Just sit here? We can’t rent or Airbnb it because of HOA…”
And on and on I went until I convinced myself to dismiss what the Lord said and move on.
This house is in a very desirable location. It’s a great house. Everyone expected it to be under contract just a day or two after listing it. Ten days later, we had a few showings and no offers.
At this point, I was getting a bit nervous. I started looking at all our competitions. I checked the MLS listing to make sure nothing was wrong. I asked Beth if we should lower the price.
After an hour or two of researching and fussing about our house not selling yet, Beth was moved by the Holy Spirit and said, “I am making this move easy for you. Stop making it difficult.”
Although the lack of showings kind of hurt my feelings, it was actually nice. Can you imagine getting a house ready to show with five small kids involved? It’s something else.
Nevertheless, I was willing to put in the work. I wanted this to be efficient. I planned on closing both houses on the same day, getting the move done, and still having plenty of cash in hand.
But the Lord was saying, “Quit being in a hurry! Relax and take this at My pace and My way even when it doesn’t make sense to your feeble mind.”
I submitted at the moment to this rebuke. But in the days following, I was like a yo-yo. One moment I’d say, “Let’s do what the Lord said and keep the house.” The next moment, “Let’s get this house sold asap!”
When our house had been listed for two weeks, with still no offers, I asked Beth, “What if we just keep this house as office space for me and my team? We would have gigabit internet, and I would only be a mile from home.”
Both of our eyes lit up. We had found the purpose for God wanting us to keep both houses.
I spent the rest of the day reasoning it out. Pros and cons. Running the numbers. Even after all of that, I knew it would work. Yet I continued to yo-yo for days!
Let me read you what I wrote in my notebook around that time.
“With the house situation, what it comes down to is this: God is leading me to keep both. The door is open, and I am going to walk through it. Sure, I could find reasons not to. But God knows the future. His leading holds infinitely more wisdom than my reasoning. I will trust Him and do what He is leading me to do: keep both. No more reasoning and listing pros and cons. Trust and rest.”
At this point, I mostly gave up the fight. I was still tempted to reason it out but did a pretty good job letting it go.
Accessing God’s Endless Resources
Once my fretting was over, the Lord finally had an opportunity to teach me what was really going on. He led me to Ephesians chapter three. I’ve read this chapter more times than I can count. But I knew the Lord would show me something I hadn’t seen yet.
Ephesians 3 is where we discover that God’s resources are glorious and unlimited. Verse 8 tells us there are endless treasures available to us in Christ.
I’ve always interpreted that to mean “spiritual” treasures like joy and peace. But when you look up the original Greek word, you find out it means “abundance of external possessions”.
So, when it talks about the endless treasures available to us in Christ, it refers to everything inward AND outward.
The question then becomes, how do we access this unlimited abundance? That’s what the Lord revealed to me. Take a look at verse 19:
Ephesians 3:19 NLT – May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
The word “experience” jumped out at me. To access the endless treasures, we must first submit to every experience of the love of Christ.
So often, we reject the experience Jesus tries to give us. For example, the Lord gave me an experience of His love by making a way for me to keep both houses.
I worked hard to come up with many reasons I should reject this experience of the love of Christ and the endless resources of God.
But if I rejected it, I would have delayed my ability to walk in the fullness of life and power that comes from God. I would have also missed my opportunity to prepare for the wealth transfer.
Endless wealth is fully available to us in Christ.
We need to learn how to access it. And it is as simple as submitting to each experience of the love of Christ, no matter how crazy it seems to your mind.
The Lord wants to do things in your life that you can’t comprehend. If you try to reason it out, you’ll talk yourself out of it every time.
So, you have a decision to make. Are you going to settle where you’re at, where you’re comfortable, where you can understand?
Or are you going to submit to each experience of the love of Christ and let Him accomplish infinitely more than you could think?
I am choosing to dive into each experience of His love, and I hope you’ll join me.
A Final Warning
After the Apostle Paul wrote about the unlimited abundance of God in Ephesians, He issued a warning about money shortly thereafter. Take a look:
Ephesians 5:5 NLT – You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
Greed is sneaky. It shows up to tempt you, and you don’t even realize what is going on. But not anymore because I will help you identify it so you can reject it.
First of all, greed is not an amount of money; it’s a motive. You can be rich and greedy. You can be poor and greedy.
Greed has two primary qualities: wanting what others have and accumulating as much as you can.
If you found yourself thinking, “Why does the Lord want Kade to have two houses. I don’t even have one! When’s the Lord going to do something for me?” That’s greed trying to overtake your life.
If you go to work and think, “They don’t deserve that job. I’d do it way better. I don’t understand why they got promoted and I didn’t.” That’s greed trying to overtake your life.
If the Lord leads you to do something that drains your savings account, but you struggle to give up your accumulated wealth, greed is trying to overtake your life.
Greed shows up in one of two ways: wanting what others have OR accumulating and never letting go.
Reject greed. When you have thoughts like these, reject them. Don’t entertain them for one second. Cast down these ungodly thoughts because greed will lead you to a dark place.
Here’s a pro tip: One of the best ways to overcome greed is to find some way to be generous.
Every time you have a greedy thought, show it who’s boss by leaving an outrageous tip at the restaurant, or giving away one of your favorite things to a friend, or giving an extra offering here at church. Generosity kills greed every time.
This can all be summed up in a short word the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart two years ago:
“Expand your capacity to receive! Stop limiting Me with small thinking! Submit to the fact that you can’t comprehend the amount of wealth available to you in Christ. You might as well take the cap off because I am not capping it. It’s a free flow, a rushing river, an endless supply. Don’t try to store it up. Don’t stop the flow by hanging on to it. Let it flow freely because there is always more to come.”
Who’s ready for the wealth transfer? The Holy Spirit revealed that the reason it is coming to us is because our hearts are pure and our motives are right. We will know exactly what to do with it.
It’s time to start leaning into the wisdom of God. When this wealth starts chasing us down, let’s be ready. Submit to each experience of the love of Christ. Let Him shock you with His generosity.
