Sell and Give

Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Luke 12:33,34
 
Jesus tells you in verse 33 how to operate in His Kingdom. If you are going to operate in the Kingdom of God, you must operate in Kingdom principles. Most Christians are failing because they are trying to operate the world system in the Kingdom of God. You have to operate Kingdom principles in the Kingdom. World system ways will not work in your spirit. You must use Kingdom principles, which are foreign to the world’s way of thinking.
Sell that ye have. Jesus is ministering to all kinds of people. There are some poverty-stricken people in that crowd, and He says, Sell that ye have. In other words, “If you don’t have anything to give, sell something and give.”
Provide yourselves bags. Jesus didn’t say to “provide for yourself with bags.” He said to provide yourselves bags. When the Bible speaks of “yourself” and the Apostle Paul speaks of “himself,” they are referring to the inner man. The real you is the man on the inside-the spirit man, the human spirit.
Deposit God’s Word in your spirit. Then speak forth God’s Word from your heart. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart will bring forth good things. 
As an example, let’s take the scripture verse, Luke 6:38. Begin to say, “Thank God, because I have given, it is given unto me good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.” Speak it. Make it a daily confession. Bring it forth with the words of your mouth. 
God is honest; He will perform His Word. He said, “My Word will not return unto Me void.” (Is. 55:11.) But God wants you to return His Word to Him. So take God’s Word-His promise concerning a specific thing. If your need is in the area of finances, put that Word in your heart by speaking it there. Get the good treasure of God’s Word in your mouth, then speak it. That will bring it out and cause a manifestation.
Giving is one of the fundamental principles of the law of prosperity. It’s not the amount given that is the greatest importance of God, but the percentage.
If you have five pennies and give one of them, you have given twenty percent of all that you own. To God that is just as important as a man who has five million dollars and gives a million. As far as God is concerned, that man hasn’t given more than you have.
Rewards are based on percentages given. The return is based on the amount you give. This principle works for you the same as it does for the millionaire. The only difference is that he is operating with larger numbers. If you will continue using the principle, your nickel can turn into a million dollars!
