Jesus

Throw out your race card

Go ye therefore, and teach ALL NATIONs…


One of the biggest lies you will ever believe in your life is that you are part of an ‘experience’ unique to your culture that no one outside that culture could ever understand or could ever be qualified to address. Jesus sent a bunch of Jewish guys to evangelize the world.

Paul went to the Greeks and Romans. Thomas went to India, and to this day, missionaries are sent by God to speak truth to people who don’t look like them.
You don’t have a black experience, a white experience, a Latin experience, an asian experience… What DO you have, then?

The ‘I got hoodwinked by satan’ experience, of which we have all been partakers. No matter what your culture, the root of every problem you face is SIN. There is good, and evil, the holy and the profane, the unclean and the clean. Everything we think is unique because of culture is just window dressing. Whether the poisoned ice cream you eat is vanilla, chocolate, or rocky road, it’s not the flavor that’s going to kill you, is it?

The cure is always the same. There is no remedy unique to your ‘experience.’
The answer is always Christ, and Him crucified.

Part of the hustle is fooling you into believing that your experience is SO unique, and this deception gives you a compelling excuse to reject any truth that isn’t validated by your particular race card. This keeps us confused, bound, divided, and easy to control by those who would capitalize on this bondage.

Are you ready to break free?

The Era of Zero Discernment

I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. (Matt. 10:16)

Something that has been recurring in my spirit lately has a sense of how so many in today’s church are lacking in discernment. We are, in many ways, suckers. I know this seems harsh, but bear with me.

It often happens in my social media feeds that numerous saints will post an article from The Babylon Bee and expound upon their outrage at what has been reported therein, not knowing that the Bee is a satire website, and fairly obviously so.

While we can also be fooled here and there, that this happens so often is an indicator that something is amiss, and it’s not the only indicator. Corporations lie to us, entire industries lie to us, governments and even spiritual leaders lie to us or otherwise deceive, and much of it goes entirely undetected. Demonic activity is often rampant in churches and families, also undetected.

In the last few years, over 100 pastors in the US have been arrested on pedophilia related charges. Some of these individuals went decades undetected, or were actively protected by their denominations and networks because of their ability to generate revenue. If indeed we are a discerning people, how are there so many of these vile people among us?

Some will argue that ‘wheat and tares grow together,’ but that’s is a flawed argument. Why? This is taken from Matthew 13:24-30, where, if we read it in its context, we will find the following facts:

  1. The man in the parable KNEW that the tares were tares.
  2. The tares did not destroy the wheat, or hinder its harvest, whereas the sexual abuse of children in the church often does lifelong harm.
  3. The tares will be rooted out and destroyed.

Thus we can understand that we should be able to tell the wheat from the tares, and we should be able to perceive things and people which are destructive to the harvest of souls.

What then, is the Spirit saying to the church? The Lord is calling us to repent of the blindness which many have had, willful or otherwise, and to ask that there would be a resurgence of the gift of Discernment of Spirits, so that we can put away evil from among us in accordance with 1 Corinthians 5.

Remember, little flock, it is never the will of God for us to remain ignorant to the schemes of the enemy (2 Corinthians 2:11), and He is certainly willing to open our spiritual eyes.

God bless you, and God keep you.

A word on Incels

An incel is someone, usually a man, who believes themselves to be involuntarily celibate. They are sad people who live unloved, don’t get married, never have a family, and die alone. They probably have a high suicide rate.

When I posted about this on Facebook, I found that some Christians actually found this funny. When asked exactly what about being unloved or suicidal is funny, they go silent.

Moreover, the way in which many of us find men’s emotional or mental health problems fair game for ridicule speaks volumes as to our carnality, as well as of the general spiritual state of we who call ourselves the church. In Canada, for example, the #1 cause of death for men between 20 and 45 is SUICIDE.

Worldwide, about 78% of all suicides are men.

And the church leadership is silent.

The Lord is calling the church to repentance over many things, including our severe neglect with regard to the spiritual and emotional well-being of men.

A word on Peace in these times

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You. – Isaiah 26:3

What does it mean to be steadfast? The dictionary gives its meaning a resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering. The peace of God is simply not for those who will not commit their lives to God.

Now, that may sound harsh, but it is really the inner rebellion of the carnal man which persuades us that being firm and unwavering is impossible, because if it is indeed impossible, then we have ‘permission’ to waver, it becomes acceptable to be disloyal. We tend to believe whatever is conducive to justifying how we have already decided to think or behave. That being said, saints of God, it’s not impossible to be unwavering. It’s not even difficult!

Remember, He said, ‘My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matt. 11:30) Commitment is a DECISION! God, through the Holy Spirit will work in you to do His good pleasure, if you truly and simply decide to trust Him (Phil. 2:13).

Will YOU dare to trust God today?

Prophetic reminder on motives

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination,How much more when he brings it with evil intent! (Proverbs 21:27)

There was a businessman who used to say ‘People always have two reasons for what they do: the real reason, and one that sounds good.’ Now, perhaps he was a bit cynical, yet this holds true for most people, and I have found in ministry this is nearly always true. Yet the Bible tells us that when our motive isn’t right, even our sacrifice is an abomination. The word used in the Hebrew is ‘towébah’, which is the same word used to describe idolatry, perversion, and bestiality.

Thus we should understand that ulterior motives are a serious sin, and can contaminate even seemingly good things that we are doing. Saints, it’s time to re-evaluate our motives.

We’re not just going to be judged on what we did, but WHY we did it.

Master Prophets?

I ‘m not impressed by ‘master prophets,’ and neither is God.

Moses parted the Red Sea.

Joshua stopped the sun.

Jesus defeated death itself.

Yet none of them ever called themselves ‘Master Prophet,’ ‘Major Prophet,’ or any of the absurdly arrogant titles being thrown around now.

Prophets, the world does not need you to have some lofty title. What the world needs from you is a real word from God that actually comes to pass.

A word on your future success

As I prepare to sell my house and move on with my life, I’ve been making plans. Plans for life, business, and ministry have all been on my mind, and the Lord had me thinking of the details necessary to achieve my mission.

As I pondered all of this, another thought crossed my mind: many of us want to prosper financially but have no real vision for what we’d do if we did.

Yes, God blessed Israel when He brought them into what preachers like to call the land of more than enough, but did you notice that what He blessed them with was production capacity? That’s right, they still had to put that land to work. They still had to decide what they were going to do with all that capacity.

Before God brought them there, He walked them through a long season of preparation for it, and when they got there, they had to fight for it. We are walking through a very difficult time.

  • What are you doing with it to ensure you are surrendering to God’s process?
  • What are you doing with what God has already given you?
  • What are your plans for when He does give you what you’re asking for, and are those plans right in His sight?

The answers to those questions will reveal a great deal.

God’s loving provision

I, the LORD, am your God, Who brought you up from the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.

Psalm 81:10

Consider the imagery.

The baby bird hears its parent coming, and tilts back its head, opening its mouth wide, trusting that they will be filled.

They expect satisfaction.

God is better parent than any bird. He did not beget you into His kingdom to neglect you. You are His responsibility, so expect His goodness and His provision today, and every day.

Are we really walking in victory?

Many times we speak of walking in victory, and we give this many meanings, some, maybe most of which, are meaningful and pertinent to our faith journey. However, in the greater context of our life’s purpose — the real reason we even exist– the truth is that many of us have not experienced victory at all. Here’s why.
Imagine, for a moment, a battalion of soldiers. They’re trained, armed to the teeth, and ready to rumble. They have a good supply line, air support, and plenty of ammo. However, there’s just one little problem: they have no idea who they’re supposed to fight, where to fight, or even what the overall mission objective is.
Even the thought of such a thing seems absurd, doesn’t it?
Yet all too often we find ourselves mostly wandering without a whole lot of direction, and so many of us have no clear idea of what our life’s mission really is. The Barna Group found that 90% of professed born-again Christians admit that they are either carnal or a babe in Christ. Now, we know from Romans 8 that to be carnal is to be enemies with God, and therefore of little to no use in the great fight of the faith, and who in their right mind would trust a baby to get anything important done?
If we don’t know what the mission is, how can we accomplish it?
If we are not engaged in and fulfilling our mission, are we really winning our part of the spiritual war of the faith? The answer is a rather obvious ‘No.’
Therefore, long-term victory requires us to know our mission, prepare for it, and engage in it with the aim of completing it. Now, this isn’t a condemnation, but rather an observation which hopes to awaken the saints to the reality that perhaps we ought to be more interested in the specifics of our purpose here.
What is YOUR mission?
WHO has God called you to, and where?
Why does it matter?
If you can’t answer these questions, don’t beat yourself up about it. Understand that now you have some specific direction for your prayer life and study of the Word for the next little while.
I challenge you to start seeking God about these questions.
He has answers waiting for you.

Loud sounding gong? A Word on ‘harsh’ prophecies

Delivering a prophecy that seems harsh to our modern sensibilities doesn’t make you a loud-sounding gong without love, contrary to the absolute tripe being taught today.

There was once a prophet who said things like:

Generation of vipers! (Matt. 12:34)
Though you are exalted to heaven, you shall be brought down to hell. (Luke 10:15)
I will profess to them ‘Depart from me, ye who work iniquity, for I never knew you.’ (Matt. 7:23)

He also cursed a defenseless tree for not having fruit.

Who was this mean old ogre of a prophet?

JESUS.

Today’s teaching on how the prophetic must always be uplifiting would condemn JESUS as not having love.

The truth is that we often fail to understand what the Bible teaches because we read it the way it’s been erroneously preached to us. Prophecy is for edification, exhortation, and comfort, but this does not mean it will always be comfortable.

In the US Marine Corps, my Drill Sergeants edified me, getting me into the greatest shape I’ve ever been in. They exhorted with tremendous intensity. Their training is now a comfort when there’s an emergency or danger of any kind.

Some may argue that we’re still supposed to be gentle, but not all situations call for what we now regard as gentle.

Feel free to call me harsh.

The lake of fire is harsher than anything I could possibly say to you.

Am I your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

Pick up your cross

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” (Luke 9:23)

What does it really mean to take up your cross?

At the time Jesus said this, if you saw a man carrying a cross out of town, you knew one thing for certain: he wasn’t coming back. Likewise, if we are to take up our cross, the man you were, the man you would be without Christ, that man your flesh wants you to be, must DIE.

This is not an option. It is not some ‘level’ of maturity or of special status in the kingdom, but rather it is the minimum requirement to follow Christ.. and it is good.

There are two kinds of people: those who are dead in sin, and those who are dead to sin. Which will you be today?

Why we don’t need to ask for an Open Heaven

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Gal. 2:20)
 
I never need to ask for an open heaven because the Veil of the Temple was torn when Christ died. I am The temple of the Living God, and heaven is already open for me, not because I asked, nor because I somehow deserved it, but because the Blood of Jesus has made it so.
 
Nor do I live by my own faith. God forbid, for my own faith would fail many times over before I could finish my journey. Indeed, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. This is why I can do all things in Christ. He promised that HIS grace would be enough, and it is.
 
He loved YOU.
He gave Himself for YOU.
He put His Spirit in YOU.
 
Every prayer you could ever set before the Father has already been answered at Calvary.

Faith vs. Presumption

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:16)

What do you really believe about God?

An honest answer to that question will tell you a great deal about where your faith is and it will also reveal the ‘why’ behind so much of your life and how you’ve handled it.For many of us, our perception of God becomes distorted or even corrupted by negative experiences because somewhere along the line we began to believe that faith means believing that God has to give us whatever we want.

Everything about the life of the believer comes through and by Christ, and so we must understand that if Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2), God is only obligated to finish what He started. For so many of us, resolving a crisis of faith must begin with recognizing where we have exercised faith and where we have simply walked in presumption.

Once you can recognize the difference, frustration, confusion, despair, and every other thing that comes with a troubled faith walk must flee.

Are YOU willing today to own up to where you didn’t believe, but just presumed?

God made you a SON!

So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. (Galatians 4:7, ESV)

So often we get caught up in gifts, callings, ministries, and so much more, and we start to think that our gift or our ministry is our identity. When me mistake our calling for our identity, we call into the trap of working in that calling as a way of relating to or pleasing God. However, the truth is that no matter what your calling, that is your JOB, not your identity.

Whether I am a doctor, a plumber, a carpenter, or even a criminal, I would still be my father’s son. Likewise, your identity in the kingdom isn’t apostle, prophet, evangelist, etc., but it is SON. You might be a prophet for life, but you are a SON for eternity!

If you are a son, then you are no one’s slave. You are the heir! The promises of God are YOURS because He loves you. His favor is YOURS because He loves you. Everything Christ has, and everything Christ is, is YOURS, because you are a SON!

Shall we then neglect our calling? God forbid. Rather, our kingdom activity should be the fruit of our identity.

Do you want clarity in your calling?
Do you need direction for your ministry?
Do you need a breakthrough?

These things are already yours in Christ, because He made you a SON!

Therefore, let us focus on being the Sons of God.

When I was a little boy, I rarely asked my father for anything, and this puzzled him. The truth was that it didn’t occur to me to ask him for things for two reasons: I trusted him, and it was enough for me to simply be around him.

As a grown man, my father told me of all his children I’d honored him the most, and had been the greatest blessing to him.

Do you want to honor God, and be a blessing in His kingdom? Spend time with Him simply for the sake of fellowship. You may be surprised just how much He will reveal to you when you seek His face and not His hand.

Every answer to prayer, every breakthrough, every healing, every deliverance was already accomplished at Calvary. Allow God to grow you as a son, and these other things will be added to you.

Mentoring Emerging prophets

Some prophets ‘turn to the Dark Side,’ so to speak because of a lack of specific Mentoring for their calling. The emerging prophet needs sound discipleship and oversight, as well as safe and accountable environment in which to exercise his gift. Over the years, I’ve mentored quite a few prophets who felt frustrated in their church because they’d hear from God but were actively discouraged from using their gift, or because they weren’t learning how to handle the revelations they were receiving. Still others found themselves overwhelmed with demonic attacks for which they received little or no real support. Pastors, the devil wants your prophets! It is best that you give prayerful consideration to how you might safeguard them from the specific threats they face.

Now, what you do with regard to this may vary, depending on any specific guidance that the Holy Spirit may give you for your particular flock. Nevertheless, here are some things you can do with emerging prophets:

  1. A weekly prayer gathering for the prophets with mature leadership to oversee it.

  1. Specific time set aside for the prophets to exercise their gifts outside of the regular service times, with prophecies being judged and constructive feedback being given.

  1. Prayer assignments for the prophets.

  1. Prophetic assignments.

  2. Specific Bible study assignments to further their personal development.

  1. A dedicated team of intercessors to pray for the prophets.

  2. Thorough training on the gift and office

Remember, as a leader, it’s your job to defend the flock, and a big part of that is by ensuring that your emerging prophets are not seduced by the enemy.

What is the Gospel?

The gospel, in a nutshell is:

The world, and man were created by an infinitely wise, loving and righteous God. Man, through the disobedience of Adam became bound by sin to a mortal life of rebellion against the justice of God.

Because God will not lay aside His justice, sin must be met with wrath, and so Man who dies in his sin must thereby be damned. Just as God’s love is infinite and absolute, so also is His justice, and because He is the source of all life, which He created for His own good pleasure, to live in sin is to commit the greatest of crimes, for in so doing we offend the very Maker of all that exists.

God, in His mercy, however, chose to satisfy the demands of His justice by becoming a man sent to redeem the world by His own blood. Through Jesus Christ, the forgiveness of sin and restoration to fellowship with God were made available to us, if we confess and believe that Jesus is LORD and that God raised Him from the dead.

If indeed we believe this to be so, we must then also believe that we have lived against God’s law, and the only rational response is to REPENT, that is, to turn away from our sin and toward God in a total surrender to the Lordship of Christ. (Acts 2:38) The baptism mentioned in Acts is a ceremonial washing for consecration to the priesthood of God, which marks us as no longer our own, and longer the servants of sin, but as having been redeemed, consecrated to the service of God.

It is this surrender that brings the Holy Spirit into the life of the believer to comfort, accompany, strengthen, and guide the believer in all truth, and to preserve him in the faith until Christ returns or the believer after death is gathered unto Him in everlasting life.

Why you don’t get the prophecies you hoped for

Want to plant a church?

If you are thinking to plant a church, think instead to plant a community rather than an institution. When Jesus addressed the churches in Revelation, he addressed them as communities by city, as a people, and not as an organization.
 
Christian leaders tend to create institutions because the primary driving force of their church plant is the fulfillment of a vision that revolves around their own life and ministry rather than around the life of Christ. Leaders, YOUR vision isn’t enough. YOUR anointing isn’t enough.
 
Man-centered ministry is the reason you can see a man raise up a church of 30,000 but almost never produce one member that is his equal, never mind one who can go on to greater works. Some of your sons, at least, ought to outdo you.
 
Abraham was given the Promise,
Isaac was the progenitor of the specific bloodline for the Promise.
Yet it was Jacob who became Israel, and the nation promise to Abraham is named after him. Wait. What?
 
That’s right. God promised Abraham a nation, but named it after his grandson.
 
Israel fathered the nation, but his sons populated it.
 
Judah received the prophetic word about kingship, but it was David that established that Kingdom.
 
David established its borders, but Solomon built its magnificence to the point that ancient writings in Tibet speak of the splendor of Solomon. Even so, the Seal of Solomon to this day is called the Star of David.
 
For all his splendor and wisdom, even Solomon did not get to complete the Promise.
 
The Promise was ultimately fulfilled in Christ alone. Remember what Galatians 3:13-14 says:
 
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
 
So we see that fathers receive most of their honor through their sons, not through their own lives. If this is not proof enough, consider this:
 
 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
 
Even the very ministry and Lordship of Jesus is for the glory of His Father, and I am sure Abraham isn’t upset that Jesus fulfilled the Promise God made so long ago.
 

The faith of the Son of God

You don’t always need a prophetic word. Sometimes you need to remember that we live by the faith of the Son of God.

Now, can you imagine JESUS not getting a prayer answered?

Me neither.

Does tithing connect you to your covenant?

Preachers, so many of you are going to go to hell for scaring people into mandatory income tithing with threats of curses.
 
Tithing under the law was expressly commanded to Israel as 1/10 of the agricultural production of the land. This is why God calls it ‘the tithe of the land.’ It was never based on income or wages. Only those who owned land and livestock tithed. There were plenty of non-farmers living at that time, including bankers, jewelers, weavers, stoneworkers, and carpenters. Our Savior was a carpenter.
 
Another interesting detail the preaches love to leave out is that the tithe was given to the priests only twice every seven years. In the 7th year, there was no crop production, so the only tithe was of animals. In the other 4 years the people were commanded to eat the tithe crops, or to sell them and then spend the money ON THEMSELVES. (See Deut 14:26)
 
We are to give generously, give cheerfully, but let no man manipulate you into works of the Law that were never commanded anywhere in the New Testament, nor is there any evidence in the first 600+ years of church history of any church body teaching mandatory income tithing. The tradition of income tithing began in 680 AD when the Roman government instituted it as a tax for their state-controlled church.
 
The New Testament writings do not teach it.
 
The early apostles and church fathers did not teach it. Not one of the thousands of primary source historical documents we have from those who lead the church in all those centuries gives us any evidence at all that the church ever taught it up until the paganized Roman church forced it on everyone in the empire.
 
When the threats of curses do not, work, many preachers then resort to two doctrines to support mandatory income tithing:
 
The first is that Abraham tithed to Melchizedek, and this means we ought to tithe. This is very poor theology, since Abraham did this only ONCE, he did so VOLUNTARILY and NOT by commandment, and it was from property taken in a war. It is extremely poor theology to use a one-time voluntary act to teach people they must tithe from their income.
 
The second lie that is relied upon is the false promise that tithing connects you to your covenant.
 
This is BLASPHEMY. Why?
 
2 Corinthians 5:5 tells us:
 
Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.
 
A pledge is a deposit. The KJV says the ‘earnest of the Spirit.’ When I first made an offer on my house, I was required to submit with that offer $500 as an earnest money deposit. That deposit is credited toward the purchase of the house, and is called the ‘earnest money,’ because it is the evidence, the proof, that I was in earnest – serious and committed – about buying the house. It was the sign that I was serious about going through with the purchase.
 
Similarly, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is God’s deposit on our life, the promise that He will complete what He has begun.
 
THAT is what connects you to your covenant written in the Blood of Christ, not your money.

God’s MIGHTIEST Prophet? Really?

Moved by the Holy Ghost

“Because no prophecy ever came by the will of man; instead, men spoke from God as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:21)

The Love of Christ contrains us…

For if we be beside ourselves, it is for God; if we be soberminded, it is for your cause .For the love of Christ constraineth us, because we thus judge that if One died for all, then all were dead; and that He died for all, that those who live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him who died for them and rose again. (2 Cor 5:13-15)

You cannot lead God’s people effectively if you don’t love them. Here Paul tell us not only that the love of Christ compels him to serve God’s people, but WHY it compels him.

They were all dead in sins and trespasses, and were now alive in Christ. Imagine for a moment if a dearly loved family member suddenly died, but then was brought back to life. How would you respond? How would you relate to them? Would you go on as if nothing happened, or would you want to make the most of your time with them because you got them back from the dead? Would you believe that they’d been returned to you for no particular reason or purpose at all?

Most likely you’d believe there had to be some purpose in it, and likewise, God has been purposeful in redeeming His people. Leaders, these people were brought from death to life! It is therefore of utmost importance that, as a leader, you do what you can to be sure that they can live unto Him who died for them and rose again. What can you do to help them in the journey to their God-ordained destiny?

God never resurrects something for it to be useless and without purpose. Remember this today, that there are no idle details in your life.

Little flock, you were dead, but now you live. Get busy living.

Mastering the Art of Prophetic Disclosure

It’s not enough to have heard or otherwise perceived something prophetically. We must also know when to diclose what God has revealed, to whom it is to be disclosed, and how that disclosure is to take place.

What IS Legalism, Really?

 

I hear so many people use the term ‘legalism’ pretty loosely, and usually it’s when they’re talking about something they don’t like in the Bible. Let’s discuss what it really is.

What to do when a prophetic word FAILS to come to pass


 

Over the years I’ve run into many people who were disappointed, disillusioned, discouraged and disgusted because of how so many prophecies fail to come to pass in the church. So often when this is addressed, if it’s addressed at all, they are given excuses or are blamed for the prophetic word’s failure. But is it always the receiver’s fault?

Let’s talk about why prophetic words fail and what to do about it.

The Dirt on Church Hurt


 

I have heard so many leaders talk about people getting hurt in the church, but nearly all the discussion was limited to blaming the people who were hurt, ridiculing them, or making weak arguments as to why they just need to come back to the local church. Let’s have a real talk about why ‘church hurt’ happens and what we can do about it.

What to do when a Prophetic Word FAILS to come to pass


 

 
It often happens that a prophet delivers a word which fails to come to pass, and the recipient of the word is either blamed for not having enough faith, or for not meeting the ‘conditions’ of the prophecy, even if those conditions were never stated. So then, what are we in the church to do when this happens?

Why NO WEAPON formed against you shall prosper


 

 
Many of us are familiar with Isaiah 54:17 but we often don’t know what it really means. Let’s talk about how God set you up to WIN!

Why YOU aren’t Prospering


 

 
Have you ever wondered why it is so many prophets try to convince you that they key to your prosperity it giving THEM money, yet year after year, decade after decade the saints stay broke? Let’s discus the REAL reasons why you’re not prospering the way you could be, and how to turn that around NOW.
