A Classic Way To Discern God’s Will For You — Prophet Dr. Tony Mathias

godswillYou may be asking – How can I know God’s Will for me. One simple answer – Desire! You ask next – How do I know if it is God’s desire or my desire?

Is your heart clean or tainted? – If unclean and you are in sin, you can’t hear God and your desires could be warped. People in sin can twist or distort God’s desires saying what God didn’t say. Psalms 66:18; Titus 1:15. But you can rest assured that if it is pure clean and sincere before God and your desire is to know and do His Will you will be able to connect with Him, you are then open to receive his desires which become your desires Matthew 5:8, 1 John 1:7-9.

‘Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.’ Psalms 37:4. – As long as your heart is right motives are pure, you do not need to fear deception. God always answers the pure in heart: God reveals things to come.

‘Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8

Jeremiah had a prophetic ministry. He was called to give the Word of the Lord. When he tried to suppress it, the desire to prophesy became like fire shut up in his bones.

Are you are called to Evangelism?godleads
You have a passion for souls. God gives you a burning desire to evangelize.
Are called to be an Intercessor?
God gives you a burning desire to intercede.
Are you called to a teaching ministry?
You have a burning desire to teach
And so on for every other ministry.

You can know God’s will for your life – General and Specific – Obey both!
General Will – General teachings of God’s Word in the Bible [Logos] – 2 Timothy 3:16
Specific Will [Rhema] – Be pure of heart and follow your God-given desires. Romans 10:17

If you seek Him you will find Him [and His Word] when you seek Him with all your heart. He asks you to call upon Him and He will answer you and show us things you are not aware of. He says His sheep hear His voice and follow Him.

God is always thinking of how to bless and prosper you… He has a General and Specific Will or Destiny for you.

And it pleases His heart when you long for Him to speak to you. God’s specific will comes to a pure and clean heart through a burning desire.

A simple exercise – you may list at least ten God-given desires prioritize them and follow them one after the other beginning with the greatest burning desire, followed by lesser to the least. Pray and appropriate these desires with prophetic proclamations in line with scripture.

As you maintain purity of heart through repentance of sins being washed by the Blood of Jesus, you can then follow your God-given burning desires.

The Unstoppable Blessing — Prophet Dr. Tony Mathias

Death and life are in the power of the tongue. There is tremendous power released in spoken blessings although the opposite is also true, so we must make it a habit to release words of blessings for they will return pressed down shaken together running over. Luke 6:38.

Blessing is close to God’s heart – a force when released can bring in your harvest. Let us examine a few things blessing can do.

Blessing Accompanies His Presence
You were given admission into God’s presence at new birth through the blood of Jesus Hebrews 10:19. He came to live in you. 1 Corinthians 6:19. And because He indwells you so does His presence and blessings. His blessing always accompanies His presence. No one can rob His blessings from you. Only you can hinder His presence and blessing through sin and negativity. Grab a hold of the revelation that His presence and blessing is sealed in you through the blood of Jesus and you will succeed in all areas of your life. It is yours now!

The blessing is a spiritual invisible force resulting in God’s favor in all areas of life, finance, relationship, health…eliminating all obstacles between you and God’s promises! You don’t have to chase blessings when you already have them! – 2 Samuel 6:11 Obed-Edom’s life was blessed because of God’s presence. God’s blessing always accompanies His presence.

Blessing Reverses the Curse
James Goll in his book “Deliverance from Darkness” talks about the power of blessing. He describes a situation where he pronounced prophetic blessings in an assembly and a woman got instantly healed of paralysis as the power of God went through her. She started to walk and then dance. He said that he saw many delivered from demons and dramatically healed when he proclaimed blessings of the finished work of the “Cross” of Jesus.

Blessing is the most powerful force on the earth set into motion by our words and action. When decreed in faith, they drive back evil forces by reversing curses and bring forth non-existent blessings Romans 4:17, Proverbs 25:11; 16:24; Luke 6:45 – To Bless is to speak well of. To Curse is not to speak well of. – Look for and prophesy biblical blessings.
Genesis 12:3; Numbers 24:9 Blessed is he who blesses and cursed is he who curses. – Spoken Blessings an excellent way to intercede Ezekial 22:30; Hebrews 4:16

Blessings Created
When the Lord puts a desire in your heart to bless someone, be attentive to his needs. They may be lacking in love or finances, prey to temptations; harassed by fears, needing guidance. Discern the kind of blessing they or you need using scriptural references. Ask Holy Spirit for scriptures to ‘create a blessing’ [Use a concordance when needed] – You could also mail it to those you are interceding for; It would encourage them.

Example: Create a blessing for one facing deep sorrow according to 2 Corinthians 1:3
“May God our Father comfort, encourage and protect you from despair. May He cause His face to shine upon you as you rejoice in the midst of troubles and trials, putting your faith in Him being confident of His loving kindness toward you? May He give you His peace…?

Blessing or Curse a Choice
Do not repay evil with evil…but with blessing…so that you may inherit a blessingsandcursesblessing (1  Peter 3:9).

Discover that it is more blessed to give than to receive!
Generational curses are broken through blessing. “The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed.” Proverbs 11:25

A man wanted to be successful in his business of selling machinery. A rival appeared proclaiming, he had a better machine. Now this man began to worry and feel insecure that his machine would not be sold.

Another friend came along and encouraged him saying:
“Wipe out fear, knowing that God protects your interests, and that the right machine will be sold, by the right man, to the right man.” “Bless your competitor all day be willing not to sell your machine, if it is not God’s idea.”

He did as he was told and found the outcome remarkable. The other man’s machine refused to work, and he sold his without the slightest difficulty. “Bless your enemy, and you rob him of his ammunition.” Romans 8:28. – Blessing neutralizes evil “But I say unto you, love your enemies…

“Let your thoughts about everyone be for their good. Sometimes people bring financial hardship to themselves by dwelling on other people’s financial difficulties. What you focus on you draw to yourself. Rather see them getting out of their difficult situations and experiencing abundance. The blessings you send come back to you multiplied.

The Blessing Principle

  • The end purpose is blessing others – serving a need.
  • The more God blesses us, the more He expects us to bless others. Luke 12:48
  • Our blessings should flow to others – Blessed to be a blessing. Genesis 12:2-3.
  • Our blessings to others come back multiplied. Luke 6:38
  • In blessing others, God takes care of our needs. Luke 18:29-30

Shocking Biblical Truths About Money — Prophet Dr. Tony Mathias

Many think that the Bible is against wealth, and that money itself is the root of all evil. Many think the poor are blessed along with those who have taken the “vow of poverty” for hundreds of years. Wrong! The Bible says: “The love of money is the root of all evil”.

Is God against you spending too much money? Do you think He wants you to go through life worried about paying your bills? Does God want you to live a life stressed about money? – Struggling to survive? – No!

How could we expect God to take care of our needs including basics of food clothes and shelter if money were evil? The fact is that most spend their lives working for money to take care of their families and future. Maybe you are one stressed out at paying bills speculating if you over-spent buying an expensive car or renting a comfortable house.

The Bible says: “Money answers all things.”
God takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servants. He is for wealth, not against it. Poverty is a curse, not a blessing [Deuteronomy 28]. God does not want you to struggle or be anxious about money through life or be anxious about your future. Since money answers all things many problems are connected with it including marriage – Money is a great source of stress.

“Why was I created?” “Does God have a purpose for my life?” These are important questions to ask. How pathetic to tell Him at the point at death, I could not fulfill my God-given destiny because I was always concerned about how to pay my bills – We also need to know what God thinks about money otherwise needless anxiety over money will continue. Here are some shocking Biblical truths about money, business, and profit.

If you are God’s child:

A] He wants you to prosper
Proverbs 10:22 (AMP) “The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it].” – God’s blessing on your life produces riches. The reason we all are not rich is because we forget we are in partnership with God and have a role to play to receive His financial blessing.

B] He wants you to be wealthy
Genesis 12:1-3; 13:2 God made Abram wealthy on purpose to bless others. He was very rich. He was also given the Promised Land [title deed] that when cultivated and farmed could support an entire nation. He was not only blessed spiritually but temporally for his enjoyment. God is trying to make us wealthy as well so we can bless others.

C] He wants you to make good profit (Proverbs 14:23; Isaiah 48:17; Deuteronomy 8:18; Galatians 3:7; Luke 19:11-15)
God wants His people to labor and live through biblical principles – the principles of the King of kings to understand how to make profit. He says: I the Lord teach you how to profit and because He is the God of profit He will even inspect your profit. One reason why Apostle Paul was so effective at being influential was that he supported himself, created free time that allowed him to pursue God’s assignment. Jesus taught His disciples that the Kingdom of God – a spiritual Kingdom could affect the natural world. He also made it clear that the Kingdom of God was of increase. Everything in God’s kingdom increases and that includes money. Your business will multiply if you operate under Kingdom principles. Financial multiplication is one indication that the Kingdom is operating in your life. The reason for multiplication is to live a life of ‘purpose and destiny’.

D] He wants your family to own a business [Numbers 33:51-54]
Every family among Abraham’s descendants owned a business. How did that happen? – God Himself set up Abraham’s descendants in the “Promised Land.” He then told the leaders to divide the land so each family could own a part. Each family was given the task to cultivate and farm it so that it would produce more than enough for each year, eat some, procure things needed, give those in need, and have plenty left over. God wants this of you and your family.

E] He wants you to pursue His Kingdom Principles to profit [Matthew 6:31-33; Luke 5:4-7; Malachi 3]
God wants us to live worry-free lives amidst problems! Because He shows us the way out in His Word! When we pursue His Kingdom Principles, we will find answers to all our needs – including wealth without stress. It will produce more than what labor can. Simon Peter and others funded their lives and families doing significant travel mentioned in the Gospels and the Book of Acts that was financed. They started business and gained political influence. Apostle Paul set up a profitable business which funded his own missionary – travel rather than solely depending on contributions of others. Acts 18

If you want to know how to profit in life:
Labor [Proverbs 14:23] and Live by the Principles of the King of Kings [Matthew 6:33; Malachi 3].
It is God who teaches you to profit because that’s His desire to see you prosper, wealthy, make good profit, own a business – and all you have to do is practice His Kingdom principles.

One day when you stand at Heaven’s Gates – the other side of eternity beyond death may you never say you could not fulfill your God-given destiny because all the time you were concerned of how to pay my bills – rather may you say I have run the race, finished the course fulfilled my destiny. May you hear His sweet voice saying: “Well done thou good and faithful servant!”

Be Blessed!
