It’s so obvious that when we talk about money among believers, most a times believers feel nonchalant and surprisedly still suffer most, of the want of it.
Nevertheless, I want to make this clear, there’s never a place the Bible says, Money is evil or ungodly and should be feared or hated.
If truth be told, which we are denied of, in most of our churches today – financial dominion is one of the least privilege a believer is entitled to. But what we see today is just the otherwise.
2 Corinthians 8:9, “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
I know a lot of people, the spiritual addicts, has tried to make a doctrine out of this scripture above, with reference that, it’s spiritual riches the bible is talking about here. Hmmm… Now I have this question, what does the bible meant when it says, the heavens is of the lord and the earth he has given to the sons of men?
Please, let’s not try to spiritualize anything here. Money is not devilish. Jesus handled money and also paid his tax. However, his Ministry would have been messed up, jeopardized and shamed, if he had not money or had no way of getting it, as at the point it was demanded of him. Perhaps, Jesus find his way.
Now study carefully this conversation;
Matthew 17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?
25.He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?
26. Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
27. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
Oh, can you see the incident above. It’s money that was needed here to solve the issue at hand and before Jesus, his disciples and his ministry, reputation too and Jesus have to find his way out.
He is Christ, but he still have to find him way out. How do you find your way out when you’re in need and money is the solution?
Do you paychecks still get you broke and yet you assumed, just by overlooking everything and getting more concentrated to prayer and fasting everything will just work out, just like that.
Listen to me, there are diverse principles for effecting diverse results of each and every part of our life endeavors. And until the right principle is applied or utilized, the desired results cannot take effect.
Now let’s take a look at what the Bible says here,
Ecclesiastes 11:1, “Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.
2. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.
Can you see that powerful scripture above. Okay let’s go over to verse 6.
Ecclesiastes 11:6, “In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
This is where the MONEY MULTIPLICATION Secret lies. This is where the knowledge to the sudden stunning financial breakthrough of some men in this kingdom is hidden – The Power or Principle Of Diversification.
However, Diversification is a powerful business strategizing term and from Oxford Language definition is,
the process of a business enlarging or varying its range of products or field of operation.
Another school of thought defines;
Diversification is a technique that reduces risk by allocating investments among various financial instruments, industries, and other categories. It aims to maximize returns by investing in different areas that would each react differently to the same event.
Now the Bibles says, where we read in the book of Ecclesiastic;
“…sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand:
Before you start complaining you’re not making enough of it (Money). I ask you – are you utilization this – Principle or Power Of Diversification.
In the principle of Dominion, God taught in the beginning of his creation. He gave a step by step factors to getting there as recorded in Genesis 1:28.
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth”
HERE BELOW ARE THE 4 KEYS TO FINANCIAL DOMINION.
1. BE FRUITFUL –
However you have to discover your hidden Potentials (seeds of greatest). Mind you, for someone to talk about fruit means they have once been an existence of a seed. God’s says, be Fruitful – meaning he had planted a seed beforehand. This is the first discovery – the knowledge of who you are and the seed/s of greatness resident in you and begin to leverage on it power.
2. MULTIPLY –
This is is where the secret of Financial Dominion kicks off. Whatever be your Fruits (labour output/profit/income), don’t just eat all. Save part of it (your income/profit) and reinvest. Can you see that.
That’s why the financial/business school will teach you in attaining financial dominion, you must save part of your paychecks, wage or salary and re-invest it, into Profitable ventures.
Can you see where the principle is source – God is the originator.
3. REPLENISH –
A Dictionary definition for this word – Replenish says, To refill; to renew; to supply again or to add a fresh quantity to.
Can you see this revelation – refill. Your business or whatever you do to get income has to be added a fresh quantity (that’s source).
However, Diversification is still ongoing here. Create another means of income. Save tenaciously a part of the profits you’re getting now and start up another venture or replicate the one you’re already doing in another location or learn new skill according to your passion and God’s direction. That’s the Roadmap to Dominion.
4. SUBDUE –
This is where the end stage to financial Dominion. When all other factors has been out to place, financial Dominion simply takes effect. You got to have enough food. You got to solve all of your money related issues without getting broke.
Are you maximizing the principle of Diversification or are you living and managing just one stream of income . Where we read in Ecclesiastes, the Bible says,
“In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good”.
Hear me carefully, don’t ever settle for just one source of income. One has never served anyone enough. Moreover you don’t have just one problem or need to attend.
Do you know that, God provided a maximum source of income man should have, which is a symbolic of the four (4) rivers that flow in the Garden of Eden. However, can be referred to as, the four (4) streams of income.
Be diligent, Learn more skills. Don’t settle for just one source of income. Diversify whatever you’re doing now. The bible says, “…one will chase a thousand, two will chase ten thousand and that means more number will chase millions. So when you diversify your means of earning, you get to attend firstly and even overpower your needs and that’s when financial Dominion is said to begin to take effect in your life. When you incomes or paychecks is more than your needs.
I Pray that the Lord will open your eyes to more ideas to dominating your financial world.
