You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”~~~~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

It’s funny that the Garden where Adam and Eve were at was called Eden. The word hedonism which comes from Eden is the doctrine that pleasure and happiness is the highest good. Eden means pleasure. I believe when we experience an absence of sinful bondages we live in the highest and purest form of pleasure. This is the pleasure of God’s type of life, which is eternal in its nature, freely flowing through us. The root of all sin is pain and fear, which pain brings. Pain is the antithesis to pleasure. The old man which is simply the image of pain must be totally put away from the Christian.

What is the greatness of Christ? When Adam and Eve sinned, man lost total access to all of God’s heavenly places, full of flawless, incorruptible and eternal objects. In the days before sin, access came through the physical senses. When Christ came He gave man re access to all of these places, but only through Him and only by revelation. When He abolishes sin, access will come back through our physical senses but only in a sinless body.

Because the Christian has been given a co sitting on the throne of God, which is always present in every heavenly place, all heavenly places and invisible objects within these places, are managed by the Christian from his seating on the throne through revelation , faith and authority. This is what Paul calls “ a dispensation or management of the grace of God.

What is the “real occupy?” At the very core of all of these “occupy so and so” is humanity’s latent desire to see the glory, integrity, and righteousness of God occupy the earth. This is where the church needs to provide the answer by manifesting the Kingdom of the heavens. Luke 11:20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. The kingdom of God is come upon you. The kingdom of God has outstripped and beat every other event in time, arrived, thus attained to and occupied, and casting out Satan’s earthly works every time it comes upon.

What makes sin so horrible? The components on earth which made it eternal, flawless, and without corruption, were all marred, making it temporal and subject to breakage and death. The components of heaven which God had made visible in the Garden of Eden, He had to hide and make invisible so that sinful man could not tamper with them.

I don’t know what people have against the rich. Yes, there are some corrupt ones because we live in a fallen and sinful world. I would love to be a billionaire and use my money for the kingdom of Jesus Christ. I pray that God answers my prayers. I think all of us would love to be rich! If we say that we don’t we might be guilty of lying.

John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. Herein lies the true meaning of Biblical binding. To bind is not to allow or permit something to occur. Genuine binding of the demonic occurs within a pure life, which has no defilement or connection with what is common with Satan and his cohorts. This is what “hath nothing” in me describes. Be assured that if we live in habitual stubborn disobedience and chronic bondage our vocalized confessions of binding the enemy is scorned and mocked by the devil who will continue to afflict and latch on to us wherever he finds sin.

Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh(ENERGY) in the children of disobedience: The Greek word for worketh is defined as giving energy to. This particular verse is in the present participle. It signifies that the sons of stubborn and obstinate disobedience energize the scheme of the devil on a continuing basis upon their lives. Disobedience gives energy for the devil to work in our lives. The word for disobedience is being non-compliant. Non-compliance or compliance holds both for unchurched and churched people. The sons of disobedience are anyone who chronically resist God in their hearts. The devil is an equal opportunity employer who does not discriminate anyone who chooses to reject God.

Mark 1:25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. Rebuked him – Greek “To heap something upon someone’s honor.” All created things have an honor that makes them to be what they are. An honor that belongs to someone, or something, is the glory that makes that created being to be what it is. Even sickness and sin has a glory, though perverse, that identifies it as a particular sickness or sin, and gives to it its substance and power. When we rebuke a sickness with faith in the name of the Lord Jesus, we destroy the very substance and power of the sickness, by coming against its honor.

Mat 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. The kingdom of God is taken by spiritual violence, spiritually strong, and spiritually forceful people, who from moment to moment snatch, seize, and take it away as a precious bounty.

Great power in the hands of corrupt men is an enormous evil. Nations are crushed by the wielded power of just one oppressive dictator, and this by that despot utilizing temporal and marred objects. Imagine this same oppressor accessing the measureless and dimensionless objects in heaven. This is why God will not allow anyone into His heavens without having the sinful nature dealt first, by Christ Jesus.

If you master by faith obeying the gut feeling voice of God from moment to moment without retreating in fear during ministry, you will help usher in revival. As a matter of fact you will be a revival wherever you go. God’s voice in your gut always operates in breakthrough revival anointing. His voice operated intuitively, by gut feelings and instinctively. If you wait to understand before you obey you will become a 95 year old person still in your seat and never used of God.

The two most important things in my daily life. One is studying the Word in order to get revelatory knowledge. The other is listening to what the Lord speaks to me. This is the prayer of revelation where you talk little and listen much. Nothing, I say nothing, is as important to the health of a human being as to listen to what God tells her daily in Word and in prayer. The voice of God is singularly the most important thing for humanity in this fallen world. Out failure to hear and obey it is root and cause of every problem, past, present, and future until Christ comes back. The key to our economic recovery is listening to what God tells us to do.

Rom 3:27 Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith. A law is a principle that states that under specific conditions, specific results will always occur. Hence the law of gravity or the law of sin and death, or even the law of the Spirit of the Life in Christ Jesus. Because, faith is a law, it will get us what we believe for, positive or negative. The Bible teaches us what we must believe and not believe. If we do not study its pages how will we know? In ignorance can we apply the law of faith to mistaken things and get erroneous results? Most definitely. The world is a history book of wrong results obtained by misapplied faith.

I found the Great Harvest scripture! Ro 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Literal: With outstretched necks people are anxiously waiting to welcome the revelation of God’s sons. (That is not self-righteous and “holier than thou” people, but those whom know the Heavenly Father)
