It is God the Holy Ghost who gives you power to get wealth. Deut: 8:18
We are talking today about Revelation; you being revealed as something, you being revealed as a wealthy person. I am going to walk you through this.
Hebrews 11:24 — “By faith Moses, when He was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,” Verse 26, “Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt.”
Would there have been a lot of treasures in Egypt at the time? Yes. I mean, that was it, that was the top of the kingdom at that point, and he was in line to be Pharaoh’s son; but he esteemed something to be greater riches than even that. “For he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.” That means he respected (or could see; actually other translations specifically say it that way) he could see it — he had his eyes fixed on the reward. He was seeing and had his eyes fixed on a greater reward — a greater reward than all of the treasures that were in Egypt. He had his eyes fixed on something. He had his eyes fixed on a reward.
We are going to be talking about a reward, and if you get your eyes fixed on that reward, you can have it. If you cannot see it, then you cannot have it. Even Moses himself had to have his eyes looking at something. We are going to fix our eyes on a reward; the reward, really. He (the Holy Ghost) is the promise, and I am going to walk you through this; we are going to see that the Holy Ghost is the promise, we are going to see the Holy Ghost Himself as the reward. You know people that do not know the Holy Ghost, and that He is God in the earth today, are going to have a very hard time seeing this — that when you receive Him, you have the reward and the promise ; but that is who He is, the one Jesus sent into the earth to be with you, and He brings His reward with Him, because He is the reward. Can He heal people? Yes. Can He prosper people? Yes. Does He do these things? Yes! In fact, the Word says it is His will above all things that you prosper and be in health.
What is He going to do? That!
We need to have our eyes fixed on the reward; knowing Him as God, worshiping Him as God, and He makes you a wealthy person. He, the person of the Holy Ghost who is God in the earth today, when we have our eyes fixed on Him, the reward will make you a wealthy person.
Do me a favor: you who say you know that the Holy Ghost is God, or you know Him as God — I say prove it. Worship Him. Open your mouth and worship Him; because when you do, it starts to set a whole bunch of things in motion in your life, not the least of which is that He will begin to make you a wealthy person — you will be revealed as that.
“Yes, I know that the Holy Spirit is God. Yes, I believe He is in the earth.”
I say, “Well, then prove it.”
Worship Him — and I do not mean just worship Him once.
Do yourself a favor: find a place every day, find a chair somewhere that you can sit be by yourself for five minutes, (you can do for it longer than that if you want, and I would encourage you to) sit there for five minutes and worship Him.
“Holy Ghost, You are God in the earth today. I worship you. I worship you Holy Ghost, I worship you Holy Ghost.” If you do that for five minutes every day, I am telling you, things will begin to change on the inside of you.
What you are doing is manifesting yourself as His temple. These words, “I worship you Holy Ghost” are words of prosperity. You think the temple of God is impoverished? You think the temple of God is poor? These are words of prosperity; and when you say, “I worship you Holy Ghost” you are uttering words of prosperity — you are His temple manifest. When you do this, I am telling you, He will visit you, and He will make you rich. He is the reward. He is the promise. He will come and visit you, and He will make you rich.
He told me to tell you: “Get them to see me.” You have to see that He is God; you have to see the kind of God that He is. We all know, and I can go through these scriptures that you are the Temple of the Living God, but a lot of people do not know Him as the Living God; and when you begin to worship Him, you will begin to see who He is. I am telling you, you know how many people do not know this? — and they need to know it. They might give lip service, or mental assent to it, but the only way you are really going to know that the Holy Ghost is God is by worshipping Him as God, and He’ll be manifest to you.
2 Corinthians 3:17 — “Now the Lord is that Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is,” (or where the Spirit is Lord,) “There is Liberty.” Verse 18 — “But we all with open face, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord…” What Lord? The Spirit Lord that were just talking about. We are beholding Him; we are seeing Him for who He is; we are changed into the same image from glory to glory, (that word “glory” is translated wealth in other places in the Bible.) We are translated from one level of prosperity to the next level of prosperity. How? By beholding Him; by seeing Him. “Get them to see me.” We are changed into His image.
Is it possible for you to be changed into His image if you do not see who He is? No. Is He wealthy? Get your eyes fixed on the reward.
Remember, Moses had respect to the recompense of the reward; His eyes were fixed on it. Our eyes should be fixed on the Holy Ghost, who is our reward.
Hebrews 11:6 — “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He that comes to God must believe that He is.” Who are we talking about? The Holy Ghost. We are coming to the Holy Ghost, worshiping Him. We believe who He is.
Can we believe who He is if we do not see Him for who He is? — that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him? He rewards them — the Holy Ghost rewards.
What is He going to reward you with? Genesis 15:1 — “And after these things, the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision saying: ‘fear not Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.’ “ What is the reward? He is. “I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” If God was going to reward someone, who or what does He reward them with? He rewards them with Himself. What was the effect of this reward on Abraham? A lot of people call it, “the Blessing.” God blessed Abraham with Himself. “I am thy shield and thy exceeding great reward.” Did prosperity come from that, in light of this scripture and some others I am going to take you to? Yes! I hope I am getting this across: just knowing Him makes you rich
You are Rich!
You might not have realized it yet, it might not be revealed to you in your life —but you are rich, presently, if you know Him. This is good news!
Genesis 39:2 — “And the Lord was with Joseph.” (Remember, I just said that if the Lord is with you, you are rich, you are prosperous.) “And the Lord was with Joseph, and He was a prosperous man.” Was Joseph a prosperous man? Yes, according to the Bible, He was a prosperous man. Why was He a prosperous man? Because the Lord was with Him. If the Lord with you, that makes you prosperous.
Read on here… “And He was in the house of His master the Egyptian.” Hold on a second — it says Joseph was a prosperous man, but He was a slave, and owned by another man. How much did Joseph own at the time? Nothing; He was owned by someone else. That is less than prosperity, that is debt, indentured servitude to somebody else. But Joseph, in the eyes of God, and what the scripture said, was a prosperous man — because God was with Him. Did Joseph have respect to the recompense of the reward? Did God Himself have respect to the recompense of the reward? — because God was calling Joseph prosperous when he was still a slave. He had respect to the recompense of the reward; and we know that Joseph, throughout the rest of this, he had that vision where he saw himself as the leader of everything.
If God is with you, you are already blessed, you just do not have the revealing of it yet. That is what this message is about. You will get there, as long as you have respect to the recompense of the reward.
Would Joseph have to have been a prosperous man, regardless of what it looked like at the time? Yes, because when it said he was a prosperous man, he was still slave. You are already prosperous, no matter what your situation is if the Lord is with you. Who was wealthier: Joseph, or Potiphar? It depends on where your respect for the reward is. Who was wealthier? — even then, who was wealthier? Joseph was wealthier. Why? Because the Lord was with Him.
Here we see that:
(the Lord with you) = (prosperous)
If the Lord is with you, you are prospering — regardless of the situation. Why would that be? Because God can move all that stuff around really quickly, as long as you do not lose respect for the recompense of the reward, or get your eyes off of being fixed on the reward. Who the reward? The Holy Ghost.
The Lord with you, equals prosperity; therefore, the Lord must be prosperous. If the Lord with me makes me prosperous, then the Lord is prosperous. The prosperity is in the Holy Ghost.
Proverbs 10:22 — “The blessing of the Lord, it makes rich; and He adds no sorrow with it.” What makes rich? The blessing of the Lord makes rich, makes you rich. The blessing is the Holy Ghost Himself; He is the blessing, He is the reward. “I am your exceeding great reward.” The blessing, or the Holy Ghost being with you, makes you rich.
Is it out of line with scripture to say what you just said? Being blessed with the Lord Himself — I am going to say it that way — being blessed with the Lord Himself, makes you rich. Keep your eyes on Him; He is wealthy, you are His temple — He makes you rich.
Joseph was blessed because the Lord was with Him, and the Lord being with you makes you blessed, makes you rich. “Makes you” is causal, meaning it causes you to be. Him with you, causes you to be rich.
Proverbs 8:21 — “That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance, and I will fill their treasures.” He will cause it. What is the cause? Him being with you causes you to inherent substance. Who does this? That would be the Holy Ghost. The blessing of the Lord, or Him blessing you, makes you rich. If He is with you, you are blessed. Blessed by who? Blessed by Him; and He is causing you to be rich. It is causal.
“The blessing of the Lord makes me rich,” would make the person that He is with rich. It does something to that person. Him coming upon you and being in you does something to you; it makes you something you weren’t before, it makes you rich!
What made Joseph rich? His good looks, and a special coat? No! The Lord being with Him made Him rich.
If it makes me rich or makes you rich, it is doing something to you or me. Wealth is a result of the person you become; you become something different when the Lord is with you, you become something different when the Holy Ghost moves into you. What do you become? A temple of God. What should you be changed from? You should be changed from one glory to the next glory — by beholding Him.
It is all about change. If you are to be made rich, you are going to have to be changed into a rich person.
Wealth is a result of the person you become, and you are becoming like Him. You will think like Him, you will talk like Him, and then you will act like Him. You are becoming a different person, more and more like Him. If I am changed from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord by beholding Him, I am changed to be more and more like Him. He is blessing you with Himself, He is making you rich like Him; but if you do not view Him as being wealthy, then you cannot be changed into a wealthy person. I become like Him, more and more; I am changed from one glory to the next glory. We are changed, we are transformed — the reward and the promise of Him with us is changed, and if wealth is a manifestation of the person that you become, you have to be changed into that person. Your thinking changes, your believing changes, your acting changes — you are the one who is changed, you are the one being transformed into His image; and I have got news for you, He is pretty wealthy.
What are we being changed into? His image, and He is the one with us. We are His temple. The blessing of Him with me makes me rich. It takes you from wherever you are, to wealth. You are being changed to become rich — you just haven’t been transformed enough to know it, or you are being blocked from seeing the one (Holy Ghost) who does the transformation, because of your religious doctrine.
Many people, when they hear this kind of message, just immediately shut it off. They cannot go there. But you can go there, we are going to go there, somebody has to go there.
We are talking about revelation of you as a wealthy person.
Deuteronomy 8:17 — “And thou say in thine heart: my power and the might of my hand has got me this wealth.” Is that we say? No! You do not say that, that is what the world says. Verse 18 — “But thou shalt remember…” (or keep before your eyes) “The Lord thy God.” Who is that? The Holy Ghost. We remember Him, we keep Him before our eyes, we have our eyes fixed on Him. “Thou shalt remember the Lord thy God, for it is He that gives thee power to get wealth.” Who gives you power? The Holy Ghost, the Lord my God who I keep my eyes fixed on — He gives me power, and power for what? Power to get wealth.
This in your Bible: it is God the Holy Ghost who gives you power to get wealth. The power of God does something to you.
I hope I have brought you up to this place I have showed you, that the blessing of God coming on you does something to you, the blessing of the Lord makes you something.
Here it says that it is He that gives the power to get wealth. He is doing something to you with His power that gets wealth. It transforms you. God’s power transforms you, and what is it going to transform you into? A wealthy person. The power is a transforming power, which goes from glory to glory. The power is a transforming power, which takes you from good, to acceptable, to perfect.
Acts 1:8 — “But you shall receive power…” (You shall receive) “Power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you. And you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and Judea, and Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth.”
He said power would come on you after. After the Holy Ghost came on you. Let’s look and see what happened to them, after the Holy Ghost came on them.
Acts 2:4 — “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
What is happening here? The Holy Ghost is coming on them, the reward is coming on them, the promise is coming on them — and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost. He came on then, filled them, and they began to speak. Verse 8 of chapter 1 says that after the Holy Ghost comes on you, you shall receive power. What happened after the Holy Ghost came on them? They began to speak. Power came after the speaking. Speaking was the first initial sign of the Holy Ghost coming on them, and the manifestation of the power of God.
I led you up here to show you all of these things; that when the Holy Ghost comes on you and is with you, speaking in tongues is the evidence that you have received Him, and that He is with you.
I didn’t pick that method. He could have picked any sign He wanted. He picked that sign. Scripturally, when you are speaking in tongues after the Holy Ghost comes on you, speaking in tongues gives you access to the power of God.
We are talking about a specific power. God gives you power to get wealth, or to be changed into (you could say it that way) a wealthy person.
The same God.
“No, this particular scripture here is a really just God who comes on and gives religious people the ability to say foolish things.”
No, He is the same God who is giving power to get wealth. You shall receive power after He comes on you. It is the method He chose. When I speak in tongues, I am accessing the power of God. When I am speaking in tongues, I am not just babbling, I am accessing the power of God. The power of who? The power of the Holy Ghost.
What does He do? What good is it to access the power of the Holy Ghost? I am accessing His power to make me a wealthy person.
When I speak in tongues, I am accessing the power of God that makes me a wealthy person.
When I speak in tongues, I am accessing the power of God that makes me a wealthy person.
When I speak in tongues, I am accessing the power of God, the Holy Ghost that makes me a wealthy person.
What is it doing? It is transforming me from something I wasn’t, into something I will be — and I have respect to the recompense of the reward.
I took all that time to lead you up this: He is now with me. He is with me, I am doing what He wants me to do, which is speak in tongues as He gives me utterance. Embedded in speaking in tongues, is the power to get wealth. Embedded in speaking in tongues, is the power of God to get wealth, and to be changed from one glory to the next level of glory. It is a tool that He has given us to use while we are on this earth; when we are in heaven we will not need it anymore, but while we are here we have the ability to speak as He gives us utterance — it is a tool.
What if you had a tool that had the innate ability within itself to make you a wealthy person? The problem is that people are not using it the way they should. They are not speaking in tongues enough to get the results that the speaking in tongues is supposed to bring to them.
Speaking in tongues, in the right way, and enough — can and will change you. What is it going to change you into? His image. Whose words are you speaking? His.
Do you think that while you are speaking in other tongues, He is going to have you say things like:
“Poverty, poverty, poverty all over the place! Look at all this poverty!”
You think that is going to be happening? No! — you are going to be speaking His will.
A lot of people do not know that about Him. He is a wealthy God. He lives in wealth. People say:
“Yes, when we get to heaven. But on here on this earth it is terrible.”
But that is not how it is! He is here. He makes you a wealthy person; and embedded in His giving those words to you, is the power to bring that to pass — it is causal.
When you speak in tongues — and it is better when you worship the Holy Ghost, if you combine those things together — when you pray in tongues and you worship the Holy Ghost, He can and will change who you are. I testify to the fact. When you worship the Holy Ghost, and you speak in tongues a lot, He changes who you are. Who is He changing you into? His image, from one glory to the next glory. You are being taught, and changed, and transformed into a person that profits when you speak in other tongues, or when you manifest yourself as His temple by saying “I worship you Holy Ghost.” You are being taught to profit when you are speaking.
1 Corinthians 2:12 — “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God…” (Or the Spirit which is God) “…that we might know the things.”
Remember, He is teaching you to profit, leading you by the way that you should go — that is the same thing as knowing the things that He is freely giving you.
“Now we have received the Spirit that is of God.” How do we know that we received the Spirit which is of God? We began to speak in other tongues.
“We have received the Spirit which is of God, that we might know the things.” I received the Spirit that is of God; I begin to speak in other tongues that I might know the things. What if I do not speak? I am not going to know the things.
Imbedded in speaking in other tongues is “knowing” the things.
When someone knows the thing, it is revealed to them and they are revealed as having that thing.
“Which things also we speak.” He is revealing to you the things, and you are also speaking the things. If you do not speak the thing, you cannot know the thing.
How do you know that that is speaking in tongues? The rest of the verse, “Which things also we speak; not in words which man’s wisdom teaches” — your known language — but in words that the Holy Ghost teaches, which would be in other tongues.
When I am speaking in other tongues, He is able to reveal to me the things that He is freely giving to me. Do you already know and have all of the things that He wants to give to you? If not, then you are not done speaking, because embedded in speaking is the ability and power to make you a wealthy person, in His image.
We are taught, we are mentored, we are changed, by speaking. The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today, and we walk with Him by saying words; a large part of those words should be speaking in other tongues — but you have to do it to reap the benefits. People that say there is no benefit to speaking in other tongues… they cannot know the benefits. If He says that we have received the Spirit which is of God, that we might know the things — this person that does not speak in tongues and says there is no benefit to it — they cannot know the things. But the person who does speak is going to know the thing, and the thing is you revealed as a wealthy person.
Say, “When I speak in tongues, I am revealed as a wealthy person.”
There is no other thing for you to be revealed as; if you are revealed as from one glory to the next glory, you are going to be revealed as wealthier than you were before — because that is who the Holy Ghost is.
You should be getting wealthier as you sit here. It is being revealed to you that that is who He is, and He changes you.
Praying in tongues helps you to realize the benefits. You know what I mean when I say “realize” — to actually obtain it, and realize it, and walk in it — “I can know the will of God, I can know the plan of God, and I can walk in the power of God.”
You see, those things are all available to you, and how do they start? By speaking.
When I speak in other tongues, I can know the will of God. When I speak in other tongues, I can know the plan of God. When I speak in other tongues, I can know the power of God to bring it to pass. Those things come out of the Spirit, and say “Here I am!”
Many people do not like the fact that they have to walk with God by saying words, they want it some other way. There is no other way. I mean, you can choose another way that doesn’t work — go for it. People have been doing it for years. But if you want the way that actually works, that actually does things in your life — this is the way.
Colossians 4:4 — “That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.” That I may make it manifest as I ought to speak… How are you to speak in a way that makes it manifest? Makes what to manifest? The Holy Ghost to manifest. When you begin to speak in other tongues, as you ought to speak… how ought you to speak? You ought to speak in other tongues — that is God’s method. When you speak in other tongues, you are talking rich. When you speak in other tongues, He begins to guide your thinking, and you will begin to think rich thoughts. When you speak in other tongues, you are speaking rich things.
Is the Holy Ghost going to say anything other than rich things? No. When I am speaking in other tongues, I begin to speak rich things. When I begin to speak in other tongues, I begin to think rich thoughts; and when I speak in other tongues, He gives me the power to be able to act and do rich things.
You have become revealed as a wealthy person — you are being transformed by the Holy Ghost into a wealthy person.
