Joseph was raised up to transact one of the greatest exchanges of wealth the world has ever seen. The world brought its grain to Joseph to be placed in storehouses for the coming famine. And when that famine came Joseph exchanged that grain for the wealth of the nations. The wealth was not in the grain but in the people. In order to live the people exchanged themselves for grain. They were the wealth. Perhaps we have forgotten that the people are the wealth of the earth. Our friends, our family, our neighbors are the wealth of the nations—not silver or gold or property. Holy Spirit has been storing up grain in me for 66 years. I am a storehouse of His goodness and love! It is time to open the storehouses to pour out food for the nations. The transfer of wealth is coming to the nations. God is opening the storehouses of heaven. Those who desire to live, to truly live will make the exchange of their lives for the bread of life. We are sick unto death of all the dead things of the world. We are ready to make the exchange for the transfer of the wealth of heaven into the earth. Jesus transferred all the wealth of heaven into us. Have we just built more storehouses to hoard it for ourselves? Or are we opening the storehouses to pour out our blessing into the earth. We are storehouses of our rich inheritance we have in Jesus. As He is so are we in the earth. He is love, life, light, peace, joy, wisdom and more and more and more. It’s time to open the storehouses of our hearts to pour out our inheritance into the world.
We are in the midst of a famine, a famine of all the things the world has to offer. What are we willing to give in exchange for our souls? Domestic violence calls have increased 40%. People are dying, families are grieving. What are our storehouses filled with? Your heart is your storehouse; for out of your inward parts flow the issues of life. What is flowing? What are you exchanging for the lives being brought to you? People are coming with empty sacks. They need food, real food. They need love and hope and faith and purpose. What are you transferring to them? There are those who come to buy with silver and gold. There are some who come who have spent all they have and now only have themselves to offer. They hardly realize they are the most valuable treasure of all. What will a man give in exchange for his soul? We must be the grain of heaven to feed the starving. What does it look like to give them living water and living bread? Do I have any? Have I made an exchange to receive the transfer of the wealth of the heavens. His words are spirit and life. What meaningful interactions and exchanges am I making? In Malachi God says He will open the windows of heaven. But have I brought my whole tithe into the storehouse? Is there food in me for the hungry? Is there oil in my lamp to shine in the darkness? Am I that window through which His blessings may pour unto overflowing?
Genesis 41:57 The people of all the earth came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph because the famine was severe in all the earth.
Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.”
