FREEDOM FROM FINANCIAL CAPTIVITY
Deuteronomy 28:12 (KJV) The LORD shall open thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in its season, and to less all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shall not borrow.
Bible Reading: 2 Kings 4:1-7 (NIV)
1 The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.”
2 Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.”
3 Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few.
4 Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.”
5 She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. 6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.” But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.
7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.”
Open Heaven 15 May 2023 Message
There are people who are bound financially. In Haggai 1:6, the Bible tells us that it is possible to earn wages into a bag of holes.
In other words, the fellow makes money, but the money keeps on disappearing. There are people who, on sitting to calculate their income, wonder where the money went.
I know what this is like because before I met the Lord Jesus Christ, I was in this exact position.
There are forces that can make sure that what you are earning is not producing the result it’s supposed to, but that will end today, in Jesus’ name.
According to Revelation 3:7, Jesus Christ is the One who has the key of David and what He opens, no man can shut; what He shuts, no man can open.
Today, He will shut the door against those taking away your money and open the door of blessings for you, in Jesus’ name.
Being in debt is being in captivity but my God can wipe any amount of debt off in less than twenty-four hours (Proverbs 22:7).
One of my sons came to a Partners’ meeting and I prayed that the next time I would be seeing him, every debt he was owing would be paid off.
He said, “Amen”, but found it hard to believe it would happen. Some days later, the chairman of the bank he owed called him and asked, “How are you going to pay this your debt?” My son replied, “Sir, even if I’m paying you one million naira for every day that I have lived on earth, I cannot finish paying and you know it”.
He was over 50 years old. Not long after, the bank wrote off his debt. If you are in any form of debt right now, I decree that it will be cleared within the next twenty – four hours, in Jesus’ name.
Sometimes, it is not just one fellow who is in financial captivity, but the entire family. Had it not been for God in the Adeboye family, maybe we would still have been one of the poorest households in my village today.
My parents could not afford to sponsor my education, but the Almighty God somehow got me educated up to the Ph.D. level, then continued to raise me higher and higher.
Today, by the special grace of God, the Adeboye family is a blessing to my entire village. If your family is poor, God will lift you all out of poverty too, in Jesus’ name.
