A Key to Freedom and Financial Breakthrough

~~Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord spoke clearly to me yesterday that He is aligning His people with righteousness and truth regarding finances and the stewardship of “mammon”. I was aware of a great kindness and passion within the heart of God to release this word.

Luke 16:1-13 tells the parable of the “Unjust Steward”. As I was directed to reread this parable I was taken into a revelation of God’s longing to entrust His people with both financial wealth and Kingdom authority (influence/responsibility) but that He first needed to align many with the proper handling of “mammon”;which God calls the small thing.

Vision of Gold Coins

I saw a vision of gold coins and each coin became the wheels in a clock that were turning together. When they were aligned with God’s truth and ways regarding finances (tithing, giving, generosity, benefitting others) they turned with ease and produced more gold (wealth/finances/Kingdom Resources). Then the vision changed and I saw people withholding due to fear, lack, desire for personal pleasures, etc. As this happened I saw these wheels (gold coins) fall away and suddenly what was aligned and turning together to produce gain no longer was turning or producing but rather falling away, like coins falling out of a hole in a pocket.

“You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.””

‭‭Haggai‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭

We are being realigned to seek first His Kingdom and to assure that His house is restored (much of it lays in ruins). 

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” 

Matthew 6:33

Just Stewardship

I love what James Montgomery Boice says about this parable in his book, Parables of Jesus,
“So, the principle that Jesus is trying to convey is one of a just steward rather than an unjust one. The unjust steward saw his master’s resources as a means for his own personal enjoyment and advancement. Conversely, Jesus wants His followers to be just, righteous stewards. If we understand the principle that everything we own is a gift from God, then we realize that God is the owner of everything and that we are His stewards. As such, we are to use the Master’s resources to further the Master’s goals. In this specific case, we are to be generous with our wealth and use it for the benefit of others.

Jesus then goes on to expand in verses 10–13 the principle given in verse 9. If one is faithful in “little” (i.e., “unrighteous” wealth), then one will be faithful in much. Similarly, if one is dishonest in little, he will also be dishonest in much. If we can’t be faithful with earthly wealth, which isn’t even ours to begin with, then how can we be entrusted with “true riches”? The “true riches” here is referring to stewardship and responsibility in God’s kingdom along with all the accompanying heavenly rewards.”

God is calling His people into the alignment of His truth regarding stewardship of finances as a key to be entrusted with more; more wealth and more of of His Kingdom authority. 

Walking in the Fear of the Lord 

When we walk in fear or withholding then we place mammon above God’s truth. I felt God’s longing to bless His people but alignment with righteousness regarding the stewardship of “mammon” was required first. The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is beginning of wisdom. 

“Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. Praise him forever!”

Psalm 111:10

It has been a season like I’ve never seen during my lifetime of divine alignment with the truth and righteousness of Christ. Every area is being aligned. God not only desires to bless individuals but to entrust people and groups (ministries, businesses, organizations) with Kingdom influence and responsibilities that require them to walk as just stewards in both finances and character. 

The Kindness of God is Upon Us

The gift of repentance has been given because of the kindness of our God. He has been patient and kind by leading us back to truth so that we can partake in the fullness of His Kingdom. 
“Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?”

Romans 2:4

There is such a kindness that comes upon God’s people when He desires change. The parable of the “Unjust Steward” was to expose the hearts of the Pharisees and to teach His disciples. His kindness comes to lead us to repentance and change so that He might bless us with greater authority and resources. We are His disciples, not Pharisees, so there is no condemnation…only the kindness of God offering the gift of repentance.

Freedom is Found within His Truth 

John 8:36 assures us of freedom as we accept the truth of His Son’s words,

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” 

There is freedom in truth, freedom in alignment and peace in Godly posturing. The heavy yoke of worldly ways come off of God’s people as they receive the light yoke of God’s truths. Though our minds cannot understand His ways; the truth of His ways are sure and relieve us from the heavy yoke that our minds and thoughts place upon us.  

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.”

Isaiah 55:8

There is freedom and peace in alignment. Mammon or money is merely the small thing and yet it is the threshold to being trusted with the eternal things. Cross over into freedom and watch your life change. 

Now is the time!
