This post has been wiped cleared due to one reason and the other. I sincerely apologize for the technical issue. Before the sun set the original post will be out. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Financial Empowerment answers to our subscriptions to the covenant platform of seed and harvest time (see Gen.8:22).
Genesis 8:22 KJV
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
You don’t expect the harvest of a maize without planting a corn. Seed time will always precedes harvest time any day, anywhere and anytime.
Get this straight: there is no prayer and fasting for financial empowerment, even the numbers of years that you have spent in church and religious activities do not count here (don’t be religious be real – the Jew people were very religious people but they still went into captivity). If you’re not an excited giver you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church activisms (Jn.6:38)
Luke 6:38 KJV
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
3 pathways to financial empowerment
Starting from the rear..
NUMBER 3:- DISCIPLINE
Discipline is a subject matter that is critical in any field of life. Discipline is to give what it demands in order to accomplish a given task. It’s going beyond your best in order to complete an assignment. Whatsoever Jesus tells you to do might not be convenient or comfortable but that is what it takes to experience your financial breakthrough in this season and beyond (see: Jn.2:5).
John 2:5 KJV
“His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”
Wait a minute: there is no record breaker in his comfort zone. Breaking record demands stretching out of your comfort zones and going extra miles in order to accomplish a specific task (both spiritual and physical).
NUMBER 2:- FAITH
I have said it before that you can’t move God until your faith is alive (see:Heb.11:6)
Hebrews 11:6 KJV
“But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
As you’re obeying the injunctions of the scripture concerning seed and harvest time also exercise faith (let your engagement be mixed with faith). This is how it works.
Allows what you think and say fall inline with want you believe (see prov.18:21 & Prov.23:7)
Proverbs 18:21 KJV
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Proverbs 23:7 KJV
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.”
Have you ever noticed that what you believe affects your language? (To answer that, you can leave us a reply in the comment box). You are what you think. Let there be a casting down of all mind debris and negative orientations. Repent from negative perspectives and give up the impossibility syndrome ( see: Mat.19:26, Lk.18:27, Mark.10:27, Jer. 29:11)
Matthew 19:26 KJV
“But Jesus beheld them , and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
NUMBER 1:- OBEDIENCE
I have said this also on many occasions that OBEDIENCE works! God has promised to give you the empowerment for financial fortune but you must first acknowledge Him as the source and one behind it (your wealth and riches; income and profits).
Your tithe is the tenth part of your gains, income, gross salary, and revenue. So, you will need to acknowledge Him with your tithe (See:Deu.8:18).
Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”
Things are tight for those who eat their tithes (see: Mal.3:7-11 & Haggai.1:6)
Malachi 3:7-11 KJV
“Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them . Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?  Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.  Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.  Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it .  And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.”
Haggai 1:6 KJV
“Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.”
You must be responsible, avoiding responsibilities and living as liabilities are one and the same. “Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your OBEDIENCE today. You can’t be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow” (SEE:Phil.2:10-13, Deu.28:1-3)
The following giving platforms also have their roots in the scripture:
Worship offering (see: Ex.23:15)
Giving to the poor/needy (see:psalm.41:1)
Kingdom advancement project & sacrificial offerings (Haggai.1:12-14)
Finally, hold onto this point: any seed that you sow as a donation is a waste ; your seed is not a donation; it’s a spiritual transaction between you and God(humanity and divinity). God uses your seed in order to meet your need.
Spiritual implication of your seed
Get this straight: any seed this you sow as a donation is a waste.
Your seed is not a contribution/donation it’s what God use to meet your need.
Lastly, God will not say thank you for doing anything; he blesses you in return
He doesn’t need your money. He is big enough that He has no space to accommodate anything
He owns you and the universe and all that are in it.
Psalm 50:10-12 KJV
For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.  I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.  If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
Your seed is your bailout in the hard and perilous times

We must not be ignorant of the devices of the devil……
There is need to understand that the Will of God for His people is Prosperity, so we must live in believe & in authority of this not accepting fate of Poverty or lack
Also, Prayer is highly important! Need to pray against fruitless effort demonic power
Seed Time Harvest is the promise of God in Genesis 8: 22…..in whatever Self Sacrifice(as being righteous, taking responsibilities in faithfulness to tithe, offering, giving & many more); there can always be TIMING to HARVEST while God is ever faithful if we faint not in SOWING
Why are people in financial bondages?
B). Disobedience to the commandment/demand of righteousness – Hear this truth: Righteousness is the key to business breakthrough (This is a secret)
Psalm 92:12 KJV
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Psalm 1:1-3 KJV
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Jesus is our perfect example. Any attitude can that Jesus does not possess, drop it. It’s my prayer an end has come to the attitude of stealing, bribery, embezzlement, adultery, formication, drinking, smoking, etc
Until you become righteous after the order of Jesus, financial blessings is not in view
C). Disobedience to the supernatural law of giving – The natural man’s law states a bird at hand is worth than two in the bush reversal is the case as far as supernatural law is concerned.
On the contrary, the supernatural law states that you must give what you have before you can have more than enough
Like my common saying, if you’re not an excited giver you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church, age, title, colour or position notwithstanding.
Poverty will dog you all the way
Luke 6:38 KJV
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
D). Disobedience to the instruction to give to the poor- Giving to the poor is like lending to the Lord and health this also facilitates answered prayers.
Psalm 50:14-15 KJV
Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:  And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
There are many people suffering in God’s vineyard. If you’re in the position to render a help, help!
Galatians 6:10 KJV
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men , especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
E). Lack of engagement in the kingdom advancement sacrificial giving – This type of giving are as building of a temple for Christ, funding the printing of tracks and fliers, or funding the purchase of church materials and instruments
Haggai 1:1-11 KJV
In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,  Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord’s house should be built.  Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,  Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?  Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.  Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.  Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.  Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord .  Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.  Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit.  And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.
Onto the teaching…
First understand that curses are not limited to generational curse alone. In the same vein, barrenness is not limited to the fruit of the womb.
The truth is that a fellow can be cursed or barrened financially – it goes beyond fianances as well (this cut across all realms of existence)
Wait a minute, any ugly or unwanted situation that has been hanging or lingering around for a long time is a curse.
Psalm 30:5 KJV
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
Enough is enough to shame and reproach. This is why I would like you to take an angry look at that unwanted situation and tell it to disappear.
Whatsoever you can’t despise you can’t dominate
Mark 11:23 KJV
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Luke 21:15 KJV
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
Your mouth is your destiny moulder
Get ready to put up a fight. The scriptures says that *fight the good fight of faith
Reasons many are still under financial curses and bondages
A). Non-thiting disease – there is a disease called the non-thiting disease it’s the major root of all financial misfortunes.
Malachi 3:7-10 KJV
Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them . Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?  Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.  Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.  Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it .
In blessings God will bless you; in multiplication God will multiply you. Our God is a God of addition and multiplication
Matthew 6:33 KJV
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
But, you must not forget to acknowledge Him with the 10 parts of your earnings (both gross and net).
Understand that financial empowerment doesn’t answers to prayer nor fasting. Rather, it answers to the the law of giving and receiving; seed and harvest time
Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
The bible is a solution book. It has the potency to solves all problems including financial bondage. You can dislodge the devil sitting on your financial freedom by proper application of the financial principle in the scripture.
Why Am I in financial bondage?
The reason why many people have not got answer is because they have no question. Why are you in financial bondage? You are in financial bondage as a result of disobedience to the scriptural instruction concerning financial freedom.
“Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from my ordinance, and have not kept them. Return unto me and I will return unto you. Said the lord of hosts. But ye said wherein shall we return? Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye said wherein have we robbed thee? In thites and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse. For ye have robbed me. Even this whole nation.” Mal.3:7-9
Comparing spiritual thing with spiritual, most of your financial frustrations are traceable to a disease called ” the Non-thiting disease.” The ‘Non-thiting’ disease is the authentic root of your financial hardship. Things are tight for those who eat there thites.
How can I be free from financial bondage?
“Bring ye all thites into the store house, that there may be meat in my storehouse, and prove me now herewith, saith the lord of hosts, if I will not open the window of heaven, and pour you out a blessings, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” Mal.3:10
Here, God is telling you will never recover from a never-end-well amount of wealth. But, you will have to acknowledge him by bringing all your thites. A thite is the tenth part of all your incomes – gross income, to be precise. This is the secret behind financial prosperity of the men of old. They understood this principle very well that they always observed and obeyed it.
Solomon made the largest burnt offerings in history.
No wonder he is the richest man that the world has ever known. During his kingdom, he enjoyed a tension free reign, there was no sign of war or fight. Thite also unleashes divine ideas, Solomon was the wisest of all kings in his time.
This thing works like fire, obedience is master key to financial freedom. Our obedience to the covenant of seed and harvest time, giving and receiving is the gateway to financial freedom.
“But thou shall remember the lord thy God: for it is he that giveth power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which is sware unto thy father, as it is this day.” Deu.8:18
Until you plug into the frequency of this covenant, your freedom from financial bondage is not guaranteed.
I don’t need your money, I’m not blogging at your pocket, God forbid bad thing. God don’t need your money. He his big enough and have no room to contain anything.
“If I were hungry I will not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fullness therefore.” Psalms.50:12
You must be reminded, do it with faith.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth it to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think he shall receive anything from the lord.” JMS.1:5-7
*Note, pay your thite to where you are spiritually nourished – it might be your local church.
Happy Sunday and father’s day🙂
This afternoon, I’m dropping a key to a flourished business. A flourished business answers to the righteousness of its owner. Righteousness is the master key to unlock the door of booming business.
What did you think that was accounted for the prosperity of Job? The scripture says Job fears God and hates evil that he was the greatest of all the men in the east, even the devil witnessed this. Therefore, the fear of God is the gateway to a flourished business.
“There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was job; and that man was perfect and upright, and the one that feared God and eschewed evil.
And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
His substance also was seven thousands sheep, and three thousands camels, and five hundred yokes of oxen, and five hundred she assess, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men in the east.”Job.1:1-3.
In the light of the scriptures above, Job had seven sons and three daughters, which symbolizes family’s fruitiness, not only that, Job had seven thousands sheep, and three thousands camel, and five hundred yokes of oxen, and five hundred she asses.
During the biblical periods, the rearing of sheep and camel were big time businesses. Don’t forget that Job was upright, written in verse 1, he fears God and hates evil. Thus, his righteousness is what qualifies him for his flourishing business and family.
In some other scriptures,
” The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” PS.92:12.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruits in his season; his leaf shall also not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” PS.1:1-3
Comparing these scriptures with the other scriptures, they all placed emphasis on righteousness as the condition for prosperity in business. These are not coincidences.
Obedience and righteousness are inseparable, righteousness and flourished business can’t be separated also. This is divine order of things.
Until you become righteous by doing what the word says, don’t expect to be free from all business dearths and draughts.
