Some years ago, as I was preparing to minister at the East Coast Believers' Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, I had determined in my heart to spend much time in fellowship with God. I arose even earlier than usual to be in the Word and in prayer.

Thursday of that week, the Lord supernaturally visited me in my hotel room. He shared some powerful things with me and instructed me to share them with the Body of Christ. As His presence filled the room, He said this to me: "My people are in financial famine and I'm giving you the assignment to go tell them how to get out."

Historically, every time God's people, as a whole, entered into bondage, the only way they were delivered was by divine intervention. In each case, God would supernaturally visit someone, and assign them to take a message to His people. The people have to receive the one appointed by God as His messenger.

I have received just such an assignment from the Lord, and I am being obedient to Him and taking the message of deliverance from financial bondage to His people.

When God visited me, He let me know that He is going to bring about some tremendous miracles in these last days for the Body of Christ where finances are concerned. However, even though He is going to divinely intervene on our behalf, there are conditions that have to be met. God insists that we consecrate ourselves wholly unto Him. This is the only way we will enter into divine prosperity.

Abraham's Prosperity
Let's look at the life of Abraham, the Father of Faith. He was a godly man who completely consecrated and dedicated his life to Jehovah. Consequently, he became a very wealthy man. But Abraham never pursued these blessings. He never sought after riches and wealth.

He sought Jehovah. Because his motivations were right, Jehovah Jireh, the Source of Supply and Provider of All, manifested Himself in Abraham's life. God saw to it that Abraham did not lack for anything.

On the other hand, his nephew Lot, a greedy, selfish man, was very ambitious to become wealthy. As you know, it produced bondage and Abraham had to go and rescue him from his captors. Jacob was another who witnessed the prosperity of his grandfather, Abraham. He was about 15 years old when Abraham died.

Evidently, he did not learn very much about walking with God as Abraham had. He wanted wealth and riches, and he would do anything to get them.

The Bible teaches us that God desires for His people to prosper; yet at the same time, there are strong warnings against deceitfulness, dishonesty, usury, and oppression of the poor to become wealthy.

If you do not heed these warnings, the result will be bondage. Jacob had been a deceiver, and consequently, he entered into bondage. Bondage Always Comes As a Result of Disobedience, Rebellion, Lethargy, and a…

…Neglect of Obeying God's Word
If there is repentance, God will forgive you, and help you make a fresh start. When Jacob came face to face with God, had a heart-changing experience, and began to seek God first. He was then blessed by God. The Lord even changed his name from Jacob to Israel, which means the "Prince of God."

I want you to understand something that is very important. The Bible reveals to us the stories of people who failed, who made mistakes, and did things under pressure that they shouldn't have done. They missed God and got into trouble. Yet God forgave them. The moment they repented and became obedient to His laws, He would cause His blessings to come upon them. The Bible is also a story of grace, and of God's mercy and forgiveness.

God is no respecter of persons. He will also forgive you for any disobedience and then move supernaturally on your behalf to deliver you.

God Will Command His Blessings Upon You
Let's look at Deuteronomy chapter 28:
And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
(Deut. 28:1-2)
I want you to pay very close attention to these blessings in verses 3-7:
Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face; they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
The Lord said this to me: "Son, I want to command My blessing upon My people. The problem with most of My people right now is that they are listening to everybody else in the world talk to them about their financial situations and they won't let Me talk to them. They listen to the news media and they are being told that there is inflation and that interest is going up. They listen to the world and let the world command curses on their finances." God said to me, "I would like to have the opportunity to say what I think."

I don't know about you, but I want God talking to my finances and not the world. I won't allow the evening news to dictate what is going to happen to me financially. I am in this world, but I am not of it.

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
