When I recently attended The Gathering with Praying Medic and some other awesome peeps, I did not know hardly anything about healing the soul. Words like “Soul Fragments” and “Alters” freaked me out a little bit, but after having a series of visions around this topic, I felt God wanting to get my attention. (Want more info? Read Broken to Whole). I was even having visions of my own soul fragments/alters, drew pictures of them, and then had them confirmed in some inner healing ministry without telling the healer about my pictures! Well, then another vision came up, as well as a Word from the Lord.
There were clearly some Masonic ties going on with some of the warfare and fragments I have been dealing with. Clearly. As in: no doubt. My grandfather and great-grandfather were high level Masons. On the other side of my family, some powerful prophetess prayer warriors, seers and Believers. Quite the mixed family tree. I have been praying to be set free from the Masonic ties and some ritual abuse as a child and I have done some deliverance, curse breaking and now some soul fragment work.
But one day, the Lord said: “You say you want to be set free, but you are saying otherwise with your finances. You are tithing to the Masons, every month, and you have been tithing to them longer than you have been tithing to Me! You are supporting that occult financially, and every dollar is a seed you plant with your choices. You reap what you sow, so s0w into my Kingdom, not the enemy’s camp.” With this Word came an open vision:
In my vision, there was a line drawn right down the middle of the sky. On the right side was God’s tent, complete with a scene that looked like a Civil War army camp. Angelic hosts, creatures and foot soldiers were busy: in and out of tents, in and out of the earth and sky and Heavens. On the left side, the enemy’s camp. Demons also bustled about, and people captive to the enemy were lined up in countless rows. I saw myself enter the enemy’s camp, and right in the middle of camp, I knelt down and planted a seed that happened to look just like a one dollar bill. The seed grew and grew, and became a fruit-bearing tree, but it was feeding the enemy and its’ troops! The soldiers in God’s camp turned into orphans and widows and people from every tribe, hungry and calling out for help. Jesus was saying to me in my ear: Imagine every dollar is a seed, one that grows up into a fruit-producing tree with sometimes a thousand-fold production from the original investment.” But it is just one dollar, I argued! What impact could one dollar make? He replied, “In my Kingdom, every dollar is either a seed planted in my Camp, or a seed planted in the enemy’s camp. They each grow up to be fruit-producing trees, but whose army do you want to feed?” Wow! This was a wake-up call for sure!
Jesus spoke in parables a lot, and that seems to be the way He speaks with me, probably because I think in pictures and have a child-like, picture-book understanding of complex Kingdom matters. This story made quite an impact on me and I think is a great illustration.
As I came out of the vision, God continued to speak to me about it then and in the weeks that followed. I asked Him where and how I had been tithing to the enemy. He told me to audit every dollar coming in and out of the house and pray about what I found. When I found it, it jumped off the page as if it were highlighted, and the Lord said: “Kick the enemy out of your house, and you will be set free.” He has been telling me to “clean house” (II Kings 21) all year, and this was just one more area to clean up.
The “dollar” I was planting in the enemy’s camp seemed quite innocuous. It was a monthly autoship to a company that carried health and wellness products. I spent money with them every month because they were “green”, helped my house be more “safe” and “less toxic”, and were even an in-state company (I try to keep my dollars as local as possible). But the company’s founder has very strong ties to an organization founded in Masonic Cult traditions. “Ding ding ding” went off in my Spirit, literally. “You are tithing to the enemy, and need to be more careful that what you say you want to be free from, and what you sew into, match up,” I heard once again. Once I canceled them, an oppression just seemed to lift, and it was like my prayers had found an open Heaven finally.
The Lord has been talking to me about releasing this Word for others. He has said that if His people would treat every dollar as a seed, choosing to plant into His Kingdom for advancement, or into the enemy’s camp for retreat, that spiritual tides would turn. You see, money has power in the natural and supernatural. God does not need our finances or our tithes, but His people do, and where our hearts are, there our treasure will be also.
Only nine percent of Born Again Believers even tithe ten percent(1) and if Believers did tithe 10%, the world would have $165 Billion dollars more to make change in the world.(2). But what about another option? What if Believers started just giving what they already have? Like moving some money around? Or tithing more with their time and talents? Give from what you already have, and God will give you increase. The number one key I have learned when it comes to tithing is obedience. I’m not saying that God expects everyone to cancel their autoships to products backed by cults. But what if He is? Ask Him.
I do feel that God is calling all of us to audit our finances. He wants to open Heaven’s storehouses, it’s just that sometimes we are blocking His blessings. I also recently saw someone in the spirit, and she looked like a porcupine. She and her husband were complaining about finances, and about how many people had prayed over them for financial breakthrough. When I looked up, there were bills falling from Heaven, right above her, but they were getting stuck in her quills. The Lord whispered, “She is blocking hers’ and her husband’s blessings with her prickly spirit.” There were stacks of bills just sitting there, skewered on her quills, and I saw that if she laid down her bristles they would slide off and be accessible. I couldn’t help but almost laugh out loud when I heard her complaining and saw her face morph into a porcupine with stacks of bills sticking up all around her. I kept quiet, feeling she would not receive the word from me, but I have been praying for her instead. So, the Lord wants to give good gifts to His children, but there may be some legalities or blockages as to why it’s not getting through.
I highly recommend the book The Blessed Life. Evaluate every dollar that is coming and going out of your house. Treat every dollar as a seed. Where do you want to plant it? In God’s camp or in the enemy’s camp? Do you want to support Christian Radio (highly recommended)? PureFlix vs Netflix? Hand out $100 bills wherever the Lord directs? Sponsor an orphan locally or overseas? Pay for a Christian book, class, or seminar, conference with part of your tithe money if God directs? How about supporting a Christian cosmetics or jewelry company over another that carries the same thing (Like Premiere Designs). What do you buy every day that could be bought from a Christian business? We have a great local Christian Business Directory here and I have never even used it! So, I am “preaching” to myself as I write! Remember, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, so don’t make it a religious spirit thing and worry or stress about it, but ask God and be obedient to his direction.
Read Matthew chapter 6, all of it. But especially Matthew 6:19-21 (NASB): “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. (20)“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; (21) for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
The Lord has been working on my heart and home in several areas, and finances is definitely one of them. Remember that God does not need our money, but money is important to God and to the Kingdom. Where we are spending our money is also important to accusations the enemy may have against us.
I am learning this lesson as I go as well. I only started tithing faithfully a year ago, and my hubby joined me several months later; but I cannot even rightly count the money miracles that have happened since then. Obedience is the key, and God is faithful to provide, so cast all your cares on Jesus.
