5 Steps to Get out of Financial Prison


I had a vision of those who are called to be part of financing new moves of God and revivals on Earth.

They are also known as those with the anointing of Joseph — the Joseph people.

Early in Joseph’s life, he had dreams from the LORD on how God was going to use him with great authority.

In Genesis 41, Joseph was far from what looked like the fulfillment of the prophecy. He was in prison, being kept on hold.

He was waiting on the LORD to call him on the scene.  And at the right time, Joseph interpreted the dreams of Pharaoh and brought a great change to the world.

I saw those who had similar callings.  But like Joseph, nothing was working for them and they were now in a spiritual prison of fear and doubt that they had even heard the LORD.

They had positioned themselves in front of a door that was closed, but the LORD gave a command.  The light of the LORD came upon them, and the strategy to open the door was released.

This is happening now.

God is bringing His light on those who have been saved for such a time as this, to release finances for the purposes of the Kingdom of God.

This is going to finance future revivals and humanitarian projects to save those who are suffering.

The financial recovery process revealed

In February, I had an encounter where the LORD showed me those who have greater callings on their lives like that of the Joseph people.

This is not limited to those with this Joseph calling.  It is for anyone who has suffered financial losses or felt they missed the LORD.

Those who have heard the LORD on things, but they have now found themselves standing before a closed door and are feeling alone.

I was shown a strategy from the book of Matthew, chapters 6–7.

This is a 5-step process that will help anyone who is at this place in their life.

5 Steps to Recovery:

1.  We need to have clear “eyes,” or the ability to have eyes to see, as Jesus said. People’s vision has grown dim and they are in darkness (not the kind that is from rejecting the LORD).

This is a time like Joseph where people are feeling alone and forgotten.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”   Matthew 6:22–23 NIV.

2.  Many have been going through a time of being purged of the world system of money and greed.

“No one can serve two masters.  Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”   Matthew 6:24 NIV.

3.  It is important to trust the LORD and not fall into doubt, fear or worry.  Things are going to work out and open up for you.

“Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”   Matthew 6:25 NIV.

4 The process of recovery will involve getting rid of judgments. For many, it was judgments that caused the financial flow to stop.

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged.  For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you,”   Matthew 7:1–2 NIV.

5.  Be proactive right now.  Ask the LORD.  Seek wisdom and revelation.  Knock on the doors.  Watch for them to open!

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”   Matthew 7:7 NIV.

Here’s a recap of the 5-step recovery process:

  • Ask God for clear vision.  Matthew 6:22–23.
  • Get healed of the love of money and the world system.  Matthew 6:24.
  • Trust and do not worry.  Matthew 6:25.
  • Do not judge others.  Matthew 7:1–2.
  • Ask, seek and knock for the strategy.  Matthew 7:7.

As you take these steps, you are going to see amazing changes begin to happen.

God will release to you greater insight into what to do next.

Get ready to break free and watch doors begin to open.
