This morning, the Lord showed me a whole scene unfolding concerning wealth transfer upon God’s faithful stewards. First I saw children in a fruit orchard. The trees were laden with ripe fruit and the children had woven flattish baskets in their hands. Suddenly gold coins started raining down from Heaven and the children were catching them joyfully in the baskets, much like one would catch raindrops in a bucket. When the baskets became full, they would empty them out in a big wooden crate on a trailer attached to the back of a tractor. Then they would return and gather more. Finally, the tractor driver pulled away with the full crate of coins and drove towards a tall mountain. A door opened in the mountain and he drove inside.
The Lord began to explain to me that the fruit trees represented his people who had borne much fruit and had followed Him with the faith of little children. Because he had tested them and knew their hearts, He was awarding them the rain of coins from Heaven’s treasuries.
Mat 25:21 His master said to him, Well done, you upright (and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy which your master enjoys.
He knew that their hearts were to give generously and they did not try and keep any of the coins for themselves but poured the contents of their baskets freely into the waiting crate. The mountain represents the Kingdom of God and the driver of the tractor is the Holy Spirit. He took the freewill offerings into that mountain, almost like He was taking the fruit crate to the storehouse.
Then the Lord showed me inside the mountain and I saw hills and valleys and rivers. The sunlight was very bright and everything was beautifully green. I was reminded of the scripture about the Promised Land that the Lord spoke in Deuteronomy:
Deu 8:7 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; Deu 8:8 A land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey; Deu 8:9 A land in which you shall eat food without shortage and lack nothing in it; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper. Deu 8:10 When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for all the good land which He has given you.
The tractor parked on a platform and the driver pressed a lever which made the crate tip onto its side. All the golden coins poured out in a river, which separated into different streams and traveled all over the countryside as far as the eye could see. The Lord let me see where two of these streams ended up. One scene was a man who was dressed very poorly, with a triangular shaped hat on. He looked like he was from the east and he had a leather pouch around his waist. It was empty and he was looking towards the sky and his lips were moving. Then suddenly the stream of coins arrived at his feet and he danced for joy and gathered them into his pouch. The Lord told me that this man was a missionary who had been labouring for many years in the harvest field, and that he had been in very great need for a long time. The generous giving of the children in the orchard had been channeled to this man that no-one knew or seemed to care about.
Then I saw another man in a different place. He was kneeling down building a wall. He had laid about four rows of bricks in place and then he stood up and also began to lift his hands to Heaven and pray. In the same manner as the missionary, this man also had a leather pouch around his waist and it was empty. Then just as before, a stream of coins arrived at his feet and he joyfully gathered them up and went to buy more bricks. The Lord explained to me that this man represented those who were building the kingdom of God without fanfare or great publicity and that He was going to answer their prayers and supply their needs so that the kingdom of God could be extended.
I asked the Lord how the streams of coins would arrive where they were needed and He laughed and said that the Holy Spirit would direct the flow of Kingdom finance so that it would arrive exactly where it would have the greatest effect. If those who were blessed by the coming wealth outpouring would freely lay what they gathered at the feet of the Lord, He would give revelation and counsel and direct by His Spirit and the last great harvest would be brought in. I noticed that the children in the orchard did not bring the coins and put them in an offering plate in a church building, but it seemed rather that the Lord was directing them to put it into the safekeeping of the Holy Spirit who would take it where it needed to go. The whole wealth transfer and distribution seemed to be happening outside the boundaries of the organized church system.
Then I saw the children, those who had poured their baskets full of coins into the wooden crate, sitting in a line on the same platform where the crate had been tipped out. They were swinging their legs as children do and looking out at the whole beautiful scene before them. The whole landscape had golden streams flowing throughout. Then golden crowns were brought and placed on each of their heads. I asked what these crowns represented and heard “crown of glory, look it up.”
Isa 62:3 You shall also be [so beautiful and prosperous as to be thought of as] a crown of glory and honor in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem [exceedingly beautiful] in the hand of your God.
I pondered this scene for the whole day and discussed it with the Lord, saying that it all sounded very spiritual but practically how would it all unfold? Patiently he explained that the first step was for those who had the windfall of coins or finance to realize it had been given not for their own pleasure but for the purposes of the Kingdom of God. Just as they knew they were not their own and had been bought with a price, so too this finance was not their own. They were just stewards who had been counted faithful in little and therefore had been issued with much. They did not realize how far the influence of their generous giving would extend as it was far from where their natural eye could see.
Secondly, they were to begin seeking the Lord as to what He wanted them to do with the money, even before it began to rain down upon them. This would involve enlarging the place of their tent as far as understanding the extent of finance the Lord would be entrusting to them. Many who had been kept with only finance for their immediate needs would suddenly find themselves brought forth into a wide open space financially. They would be moving from measured provision for preparation to lavish provision for positioning in the Kingdom. They were not to lean on their own understanding but in all their ways acknowledge the Lord and He would direct their paths. Detailed instruction would be given, which would also involve divine connections and appointments with people they had not previously been aware of in the Kingdom of God.
Psa 32:8 I [the Lord] will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Psa 32:9 Be not like the horse or the mule, which lack understanding, which must have their mouths held firm with bit and bridle, or else they will not come with you.
I saw a fishing boat come in with a huge catch and many people lined up stretching inland. The man in the boat would hand a bucket of fish to the first person and it would be passed all along the line from one to the other, until it reached a table where there was a place setting and people bowed in prayer over empty plates, in faith thanking God for the provision that would come. I saw that these fish had coins in their mouths and that the Lord had brought to the surface for the endtime saints the hidden riches of secret places which had been stored out of sight for such a time as this. The people who were praying at the table were expecting just a meal for the day; their ‘daily bread’, but suddenly the table was groaning with a banquet far beyond their imagination, and they began to weep at the lavish love of the Lord manifested in their situations. They began to invite others to feast with them on what the Lord had rained into their lives and the Kingdom was extended as people saw with their own eyes the love of God for His people. I also noticed that while the people were eating inside the warm, lit room, outside it was very dark and I realized that this provision will come when dense darkness is upon the earth.
I was made to understand that the chain of people passing the bucket of fish demonstrated the manner in which the stream of gold coins would reach the missionary and the builder in the Kingdom of God. The first person to be handed the bucket could not even see the people at the table, but he could see the person strategically placed next to him and he knew he was to pass the bucket of fish to that person. All was occurring under the direction of the Holy Spirit. Somehow it seemed that each person in the queue was named Joseph – a reference to those who distribute from the full storehouse in the time of famine. God will be connecting the Josephs and corporately this company will have a much greater impact upon the Kingdom than they would have had if each had just taken their bucket of fish and gone home with it.
Joh 3:8 The wind blows (breathes) where it wills; and though you hear its sound, yet you neither know where it comes from nor where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.
The Word tells us it is the Lord who gives us the power to get wealth and we must understand that if we have been appointed to be used in this manner in God’s end-time plans, then we must seek His face for instruction and direction and walk in the fear of the Lord, knowing that people we will never see this side of Heaven will be profoundly affected by our joyful obedience in all areas in which the Lord directs us. God’s treasure is His people and the value of one soul brought into the Kingdom is greater than all the gold and silver this world can produce. Let us ask the Lord that He would give us the nations of the earth as our inheritance and place us and use us strategically in the days and years ahead.
