CURSED! PART TWO – The Ancient Reason Why Servants of God Live in Poverty
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Gal 3:13, 14 NKJV
Are you ready, as a servant of God, to have the Lord break the curse of poverty off of your life, and you begin to prosper in the will of God?
Let’s walk through the steps…
I want to say that there are three spirits we are going after that effect poverty: poverty, the orphan spirit, and martyrdom. There may be more involved, but these three seem to be the big ones. The outcome of deliverance can change your life radically, in proportion to the degree that the spirit has controlled you. My life was radically changed when I got soul ties broken and delivered of curses which were spoken over me, and taken into my life, through my bible school leadership.
To walk through these steps you should be alone. If you are reading this email at an internet café, print this one out and take it with you to a private place. You may wish to read the whole email first, making sure you understand everything, before walking through the steps.
Take all the time necessary to thoroughly do each step.
It may be necessary not to tell anyone that you are doing this personal self ministry. Everyone around you may be dealing with similar spirits and may need their own ministry. But you should help them only after you have been helped yourself.
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32 NKJV
The synonym for truth that you must embrace throughout this process is honesty. Self-deception is a huge problem with ministers. You must be bluntly, brutally honest with yourself and God, or you won’t be helped.
First, say, “Evil, get out of my life, in Jesus’ name. I no longer agree to live with you.”
You are saying to those evil spirits that you have lived with, that they no longer have a place to live in you. You are starting a fight to evict them from your soul and body.
Secondly, confess your sins and the sins of your family, as the Holy Spirit brings them up in your heart.
Read this prayer out loud: Holy Spirit, search my heart, and show me if there is any wickedness in me, that I might confess it, be forgiven for it, and be cleansed from it in Jesus name. Amen.
Take all the time you need to confess your sins, and the sins of your family, especially sins with regard to money, like wastefulness, lack of tithing, lack of saving and idolatry in you and your family. Be honest.
Third step is the forgiveness of others. Quick story: when I ministered to a married couple who were in business, and they forgave the people that destroyed their business, their business was literally restored THE NEXT DAY!
You must forgive from your heart everyone who has ever hurt you.
Name them one by one. Be thorough and take your time. Read this prayer out loud. Holy Spirit, enable me to recall and forgive everyone who has hurt me and left a mark on my soul, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Say their name out loud, say what they did to you out loud. Then say, “I forgive you, and I love you.” There is no true forgiveness without reconciliation. Take all the time that you need.
Here is an example of what I am saying. Pretend the person is right in front of you. I might say, “Mrs. Third Grade Teacher, you humiliated me when you threw the contents of my desk on the floor in front of everyone. I forgive you, and I love you.”
Fourth step: remove anything from your person or your home that you trust in or worship, especially religious symbols. The first and second commandments are serious business. Be thorough. Clean house.
Finally, you are going to expel the demons.
Read this declaration out loud. Demons, you are going to leave my body and soul, and you will not tear me when you do, in Jesus’ mighty name.
Now, in Hebrew and Greek, the words for ‘spirit’ and ‘breath’ are the same words.
You can expel spirits, and they may come out in the form of an evil breath.
Quietly but firmly say, “Demons, go in Jesus name!
Now, begin to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Remember, you are to be alone when you do this self-ministry. After four or five breathes you may feel a need to yawn, or a cry, or a scream or the need to vomit. Let it out! Don’t hold it back, and don’t speak in tongues. Concentrate on getting these things out.
You will know when you are done.
When you are done, you should have peace, quietness on the inside. You may feel light, empty almost, like a burden has been lifted off of your shoulders. It has been lifted!
If you do not have peace, you need to text me, even internationally, so that we can set up a time when I can pray for you. My number is 503-302-5381. When you text me, give me your full name, age, gender (there’s only two), phone number with country code, and country if out of the USA, and the purpose for texting me (say, I don’t have peace).
Now, we need to close the door to these demons from ever coming back. You do that by establishing the rulership of Jesus where the demon has been. Read the whole book of Ephesians out loud at the end of your session. Read the whole book daily for a week afterwards. Read it in different translations if you can. It is the premier NT book for deliverance and the authority and supremacy of Jesus and His Church.
Remember dear ones, we must be about our Father’s business…
ADDITIONAL PRACTICAL TEACHING
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. Deut 6:4-5 NKJV
The major mistake that the early missionaries made, as well as many ministers, is equating ‘ministry’ with God. The Hebrew alphabet starts off with the aleph, then the beth, then the gamel. The aleph symbolizes God, the beth is the house or family, and the gamel is work or ministry. The gamel is not the aleph.
This order reveals divine wisdom. God is first, your family is second, and your work or ministry is third. You only start a family through the marriage covenant, when firstly God has been established on the throne of your life. You only enter into ministry, and stay in ministry, when your family, including your personal or family finances, is secure. What we have done, by equating gamel with aleph, is sacrificed our families on the altars of our ministry, which is idolatry, regardless of how ‘anointed’ you are! This is human sacrifice, which is wickedness, and poverty is the result.
You are not qualified for ministry until you have a solid plan in place to support your family. You can only stay in ministry as long as a solid plan to support your family is working.
I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread. Ps 37:25 NKJV
The first question is, how much money do you need to support your family? You need money for tithing, and savings, and fixed expenses, and discretionary spending. Let’s break this down…
TITHING – Tithing is the aleph part of your finances. 10% of your income, given as the Lord directs.
SAVINGS – Should always be at least 10% of your income as well. You always save, even if you are in debt. Savings breaks the debt/credit card cycle by putting away money for future debts.
FIXED EXPENSES – Includes investment funds for retirement, mortgage or rental payments, groceries, clothing, everything that you pay for on a regular monthly basis, including credit card/loan debt.
DISCRETIONARY SPENDING – This is what you have left to spend on whatever you want after you have covered the first three categories. In most cases, if you even have money for discretionary spending, assuming you have covered the first three well, it indicates you are doing something right. Good job!
Now, to answer our question, sit down and write this out. Be honest and thorough. If you don’t know how much to allow for clothing each month, take the time to find out. Plan for nice clothing, not rags. Same with how much you should be saving towards retirement.
The second question is, do you have enough income right now to cover these four areas? If you don’t, then what are you going to do about it?
If your ministry cannot support you, then you must work a secular job as well, or end your ministry for a season. A man’s gift makes room for him. If you have a real gift of God for ministry, then God will open doors for that gift. If you don’t, the sooner you get out of full time ministry, and start doing what you are supposed to be doing, the better off you will be. Be vigilantly aware of self-deception, and selfish ambition. Times and seasons change, and we must change with them as the Lord leads. Do you understand?
There is much more that I could teach about this area. I would like to take a ‘one time’ group and help them get out of poverty. If you would like to be a part of this group, please write to Reverend Mrs. Reggie Greenleaf at email@example.com. Put the words PROSPERITY GROUP in your topic line, and all of your contact information in the body of your email. Love you all!
