It's Our National Day of Prayer!

Posted in Spiritual

National Day of Prayer

Praying together as a nation

Since being signed into law in 1952 by President Harry S. Truman, the United States has observed the first Thursday in May as our National Day of Prayer. It is on this day that Christian belivers that are also citizens and residents of our great nation come together and stand as one to petition our God on behalf of our nation. This is such an honor!

Coming from the bible book of Daniel Chapter 9 Verse 19, we should pray and agree on this theme:

For Your Great Name's Sake!
Hear us...
Forgive us...
Heal us!

Take time from your busy day to read and meditate on the full scripture in the bible book of Daniel and stand in agreement as we pray for the Lord to hear us, forgive us and heal us. Scripture confirms that fervent prayers avail much. Coming together in prayer as a nation will be powerful and life changing. I believe that!

Thank you for joining me in recognizing our National Day of Prayer.

Rewind...National Day of Prayer

Posted in Spiritual

Money reVerse Rewind National Day of Prayer

Our National Day of Prayer is officially the first Thursday of May each year. This is the day in which all faiths are invited to pray for our nation.

With the unrest and uncertainty that is now present in America as a result of our recent presidential election, I’m calling for a rewind of our National Day of Prayer. Let’s rewind every day and truly seek God for peace and stability on all fronts for the US.

‘Our satisfaction in remaining religious without being fully committed to living out the truths of Your Word has caused us to become co-conspirators with the forces of evil that are destroying us as a society.’

This confession is included in the 2016 National Prayer composed by Dr. Tony Evans. This prayer is one of thanksgiving, repentance and praise. It expresses sentiments that reflect the cries of my heart on a daily basis.

I’m praying for our nation daily. Will you join me?

I've Received Healing of a Brain Tumor!

Posted in Spiritual

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month!

I can’t let the month of May end without focusing on Brain Tumor Awareness!

According to a report by CBTRUS Statistical Report (2012), there are more than 688,000 people in the United States that are living with a primary brain or central nervous system(CNS) tumor diagnosis. Of these, approximately 80% or 550,000 are benign tumors (not causing death or serious injury) and the other 20% or 138,000 are malignant (can cause death or serious injury). The National Brain Tumor Society is an organization that has worked to secure themselves in key positions in the areas of drug development, intensive research, advocacy, and human support areas to make a positive difference for those families that may be impacted by a loved one with a brain tumor diagnosis. They are working to do their part to make a difference! Great organization. Learn more about them here.

For those that know my story, you know that my passion to learn, live, reach and teach about Christian kingdom finances was birthed in me when I personally was living with a tumor in my brain. After going through many odd symptoms, doctor visits, tests and re-tests I was given a brain tumor diagnosis. It was small but caused large discomforts. Surgeons recommended watching and attempting to control the growth with medicines before opting for what could be a difficult surgery. I prayed. I agreed. I heard.

I heard the Holy Spirit instructing me to be still and not tell anyone about the diagnosis. I was also instructed by the Holy Spirit to turn off the TV. It was after a period of 2 weeks that I was released to share what was going on with members of my family. My TV has been off for over 16 years.

In that time of petitioning the Lord for healing I developed a closer than close relationship with my God. Without me requesting it, He began showing me visions of God ordained financial wealth and elevation for those that are believers. No get rich quick schemes. No giving everything you own to the church. No marathon prayer meetings with people running around the church speaking in tongues. The visions that I saw had all of us following the financial plan that is outlined in the principles as written in the scriptures. I saw it and I believed it. I began living it and it works. As a result, I live a debt free existence – (yes even the houses are paid in full), I have excellent credit, savings, support family as needed and I invest and trade stocks and options.

All the financial knowledge and skills that I used to achieve this were given to me by the Holy Spirit during the 4-year period of time when there was a trespassing tumor in my brain.

My God is a healer. After 4 years of living with a tumor in my brain I got a good report of being tumor free. That was 12 years ago. May is Brain Tumor awareness month but the real story is that my God is a healer. No ailment is too big or too serious for Him!

Approximately 7 years after being healed of a brain tumor and earthly views of money and possessions, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Tell the people what I told you.” In response to that instruction, Money reVerse was born.

Our God has a plan for every life that He creates. Submit to Him and begin to embrace your spiritual purpose. That’s the reason that we’re really here. True happiness will come as a result of being obedient to the calling on your life. It's not just for those that minister in a pulpit in front of a congregation. We all are called according to His purpose! Get busy being you!

If you’re living with a diagnosis I’m praying for you. If you’re not living with a diagnosis pray for those that are. Here’s the scripture that spoke to me more clearly than any other when I was living with a brain tumor diagnosis:

Be still, and know that I am God…
CarolynW I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
Psalm 46:10 NKJV

Thank you for supporting Money reVerse!

Thursday May 5, 2016 is our National Day of Prayer!

Posted in Spiritual

Our National Day of Prayer is Thursday May 5, 2016. This day of unity for Christians is held the first Thursday of May each year.

The theme for the 65th annual National Day of Prayer is Wake Up America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to the God of our Fathers in reverence for His Holy Name.

This year’s scripture focus for the day is Isaiah 58:1

Cry aloud, spare not;
Lift up your voice like a trumpet;
Tell My people their transgression,
And the house of Jacob their sins.

The prayer that all participants will be reading and agreeing upon was written by Dr. Tony Evans, the 2016 Honorary Chairman. This prayer will be read throughout the nation at 11 AM Central time on Thursday May 5th. The effect of this unification will be a wave of prayer flowing from one coast to the other, illustrating the unity of God’s people and acknowledging His dominion over the circumstances facing the nation and the world.

A capture of the full prayer is as follows:*

Dear heavenly Father, we come to You today as a humble people desperate for Your supernatural intervention on behalf of our beloved nation. First, we thank You for all the blessings You have bestowed on our land, blessings that have allowed us to bring so much good and benefit to not only our own citizens but also to the rest of the world. The very ideals upon which this country was founded were based on biblical truths, no matter how some try to rewrite history to deny that very fact today.

This is why our hearts are so broken over how You continue to be marginalized and dismissed by both our people and our institutions. We are also saddened by the fact that Your people have contributed greatly to the spiritual apathy that now engulfs us. Our satisfaction in remaining religious without being fully committed to living out the truths of Your Word has caused us to become co-conspirators with the forces of evil that are destroying us as a society.

It is for this reason that we personally and collectively repent of our carnality and recommit ourselves to becoming visible and verbal disciples of Jesus Christ. Enable us, by Your Spirit, to no longer be secret agent Christians but rather to publicly declare and live out Your truth in a spirit of love so that You feel welcome in our country once again.

Thank You for Your promise to hear our prayers when we call to You with hearts of repentance and obedience, which is how we are appealing to You today, Father. On behalf of Your church, we affirm afresh the priority You are to us that You would fill every dimension of our lives as we seek to bring You glory through the advancement of Your kingdom in our personal lives, our family lives, and in the lives of our churches and our government leaders. We confidently invite heaven’s intervention into all the affairs of our nation and we praise You in advance for Your answer.

In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

by Dr. Tony Evans

Financial Authority: Part 1 - No Personal Financial Ignorance

Operating in the financial place that is outlined for Christians in the Holy Bible will require that we first put to an end all instances of personal financial ignorance.

No disrespect is intended here. Let’s break it down.

Claim Your Financial Authority - Series Introduction

Posted in Spiritual

Are you a Christian? Take your rightful financial place!

For those of us that have truly accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior, we individually asked for this acceptance and made a commitment to make lifestyle changes to live as instructed to do in the Holy Bible.

Sustaining the level of financial positioning as the bible instructs us to do requires that we operate with financial purpose. How do we do this? The answer starts with the word NO. Walking in financial authority looks like this:

Welcome 2012 - I'll go where You want me to go

Posted in Spiritual

For the last week, I’ve been listening to music that was given to me two years ago as a Christmas gift from a very dear friend (Thanks again CG!  You’re a blessing in so many ways!).  The CD is titled “It’s Christmas”and the artist is Ledisi.

The first song on this project is a simple and beautiful one entitled “I’ll Go”.    

When I hear this song...

It touches me in a way that makes me nod my head yes.   

I agree and witness to the words.   

It humbles me. 

It brings tears to my eyes and reminds me what is really important. 

My commitment to my spiritual assignment is refreshed. 

I don't know what's ahead on the road but I'm on it.

I’m encouraged to keep teaching, blogging and speaking even though my calendar shows that I don’t have the time to invest.

Big reaction from so few words...

I’ll go where You want me to go.

 The You I'm referering to in this post is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

 Here's a link to the song along with pictures of the talented artist!   I'll Go - Ledisi 

I have it on repeat on my MP3 player.  

In 2012, I’ll go.  Will you?

Thank you for allowing me to share with you in 2011.  Welcome 2012!

The Lord wants you to prosper!

Posted in Spiritual

What do you think is the overall theme to us that is being expressed by the Christian biblical scriptures when it comes to money?

Do you think that it is expected that you give all your earnings to the poor?  

Focus on giving your money to the church so that you can go to heaven?  

Do you think that you should not desire nice things, live a humble life and fear the Lord?  

What about not being able to get into heaven as a rich man?

I want to share with you that the Lord wants you to prosper!  

Despite what you’ve heard, what you’ve been told or what you’ve believed in the past, The Lord wants you to prosper!  Let’s reVerse…

Deuteronomy 5:33  “Walk in obedience to all that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.”

Deuteronomy 30:2, 9  “and when you and your children return to the LORD your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today…

Then the LORD your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The LORD will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as he delighted in your ancestors “

Proverbs 21:21 “Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.”

Acts 13:17 “The God of the people of Israel chose our ancestors; he made the people prosper during their stay in Egypt; with mighty power he led them out of that country;”

Notice a common necessary requirement?  In these and other scriptures that provide instructions or report on instances of prosperity, complete obedience to God’s will is noted as a main ingredient.

The Lord wants you to prosper!  “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”  (Luke 12:32)  He lets us know that we are the salt of the earth and light of the world (Matthew 5:13-14).  How much of an influence would we be if we are poor and unable to help others?

Know that the Christian biblical scriptures are the truth.  Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right… think about such things!  (Phil 4:8)

Think back...did your parents, elders, teachers, coach or mentor want you to do well?  Does this introduce an opportunity for a new way of thinking for you?

Take the time...

As a takeaway from this subject, write down your honest answer to the following question:  "I've always thought that the overall "money" message to me from the bible said..."

See if you can find scripture references to validate this bible "money" message that you've always believed.

Money reVerse - The bible instructions on handling money

Posted in Spiritual

I am convinced that our guiding principles for handling money and possessions are already established in God's word.  Some Wonder why this blog is named Money-Reverse?  Good question.  Let me explain...

General categories of these guiding principles are as follows:

  1. The Lord wants us to prosper
  2. Recognizing God as the true owner of everything
  3. Managing what is personally entrusted to us
  4. Working to earn a living
  5. Taking care of family
  6. Avoiding debt
  7. Giving to the building of God's kingdom
  8. Giving to the poor
  9. Being a generous giver
  10. Paying what we owe...on time
  11. Saving and investing
  12. Preparing for your demise
  13. Leaving a legacy
Scriptures support basic instructions on these topics.  These instructions are as valid for us today as they were for the early followers of Christ.  

I'd like to encourage all readers to join me in examining the bible verses that support these instructions.  I promise you that there have been no new verses inserted or appended to God's word to guide us in these days that could prove to be financially challenging.  The prefix re means "again" when you pair it with the root word that immediately follows.  Because it is likely that you've studied these scriptures before, I'd like for us to re-read these verses and look at them as if you're seeking God's instructions on managing money and possessions.  Let's call this a re-verse exercise with the goal of reversing all non-biblical, unfavorable individual and global financial conditions.

Are you in?  Let me know and stay tuned!
