Some time ago, the Lord asked me a question. The questions was, “What is the difference between giving and forgiving? Leaving and losing?”
Whenever God asks a question, it isn’t because He doesn’t know the answer. It is usually because He wants to give you a new answer.
So, like Ezekiel, I answered, “Lord, You know; I don’t. What is it?”
His answer was, “Nothing.” I pondered this for a moment, then He said, “The only difference is from where it originates.
- To is a choice you make, and you release something. In this case, what you give, you release.
- To is a choice you make and you release something. In this case, that which was taken from you, or what was stolen, you forgive and release.
- They both mean to let go.
- They both mean the release of control.”
At times, when we give, we give with an expectation of something going in a different direction. So, we really didn’t give (release control of). We send out our money out on a purpose. Like most of us, I’ve sent a lot of money out on a purpose. Usually, my money does not go where I want it to go.
I’ve known this truth, but it is a difficult truth to enjoy. You never receive from the place to where you sowed.
If I sow toward some individual, some cause, or some person, I might think that I will receive something back from that person, but you won’t. You may get a thank you card. This is wonderful, but this is not where
heaven releases the return. The return always comes in a different way and from a different source. Otherwise, we would all be doing this for the purpose of gaining instead of releasing. God always mixes it up.
If we were to serve in Sunday school with the intent of being a blessing and help to people. We would get the sense of the Lord’s pleasure over us in Sunday school and our service. At some point, we would be tempted to feel that at some point there is going to be a return to us for this service.
Chances are, we would not receive that return, as expected. We would become upset that no one acknowledged us as the greatest teacher in the world. We would be passed over for promotion. Worse, would be that we would be given more to do with less thanks. We can then grow bitter in the very thing we are doing.
If I leave, that means I made a choice. I want to follow the Lord. I’m leaving all to follow Christ. If I lose all while I’m following Christ, and I choose to forgive, the same is the truth.
Recently, when I was in Thailand, I was waking up the first morning and the Lord started ministering to me about the life of Jesus. Jesus said,
18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. John 10:18
And it goes on in John 13 when Jesus is at Passover, it says,
3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, 4 rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. John 13:3-4
Jesus laid aside His garments and took on the robe of the servant and washed the disciples’ feet.
- The of knowing your identity is so that you can give away everything you have.
- The of your identity is when everything you have is being taken from you.
When it is being taken from you, it can shift in a moment by the power of forgiveness and become a gift that you gave. That’s the incredible depth of what we have potential for.
In Thailand, as I was waking up, the Lord was talking to me about Jesus. He said, “me-Ministry”. I thought, “What are You talking about?” I saw it kind of like the iPhone—the little me and the big Ministry. This phrase just kept coming in my waking hours.
He had me think of Jesus. He said, “Jesus never allowed anything to be taken from Him. Instead, He gave it all away.” He understood the dynamic of holding Himself in a place of fellowship and union with Father, so that He could choose to give, when it was being taken. He could move what was being taken into a gift, so that it never became being taken from Him. This is found in Luke 6. It is a dynamic that, when it breaks open, it can affect everything and everyone.
This was HIS INSTRUCTION:
- Know when you are being taken from
- Return to Me until you are reconnected in identity and union
- And then go give it away
- It’s not about holding it back.
- It is about giving it out.
When something is being taken from us:
- We have to understand that it is no longer in our power to lay it down, someone else has overtaken it.
- If unattended, if not going back to Father, if we don’t become reacquainted with the fact that everything is His. That we came from Papa and we are headed home to Papa and this is just a journey through, down.
- We will come into the regret, grief, sorrow.
- We will go into justice and fix things and make things better and we will just shut
I think all of us have shut down many, many times.
Last week, our speaker was Cindy Jacobs. We began to declare forgiveness over our state. The beautiful thing about California is that we are the sinful woman. We have access to a massive amount of grace and forgiveness. When we receive massive forgiveness, we are lovers. This state is a loving state.
But, we live from a place of a sense of shame and reproach that we try to become righteous in our shame. So, we create laws in our attempt to make things that were wrong, right and we just get all eschewed. We really don’t know how to come alive. We are not a righteous state. There really is no righteous state, but we may be more sinful than most.
I was born and raised here, so I’m not calling the kettle black. I AM the kettle.
But those moments, when someone, somehow, presses through and touches the hem of His garment. They touch the Lord by sitting at His feet. They touch and receive, and finds the element of forgiveness As they open their heart in love, they receive the completeness of liberty, the sound of that is so vibrating and so freeing, that it can shift nations.
This is because the truth is that all of the world is under the weight of
And, we need a Liberator! We need a Forgiver.
We need a guy who comes in and says, “Hey, I already paid for all of that. I want to convict you, but I also want to free you. I’m not going to make you grovel in where you have been. I’m going to release you to come up where I am. Come on up, let’s go. Let’s go quickly.” These are the days that are upon us.
About a week ago, I saw that my wife, Cammy and I were to go and get $500 in one dollar bills. So, at our Sunday service, our ushers became our evangelists that were going to help us send George Washington out into the earth. $500, when you put it into one dollar bills, goes pretty far. We passed it out to everyone at our service.
The Lord told me to get my own money, rather than the church’s money. This is not church money, this is my wife’s and my money. Our ushers passed one out to each person and we gave it freely. We declared that it was each person’s to do anything they wanted with it. Now, a $1.00 bill won’t get a person very far—perhaps enough to buy a taco? They were told that they could do whatever they wanted with it. They were free—no strings attached.
Everything we give, we must release when we give it. If we give it with a goal, then we are not it. We are directing our money.
INVESTMENT – DIVESTMENT
Some people invest in the kingdom. Unfortunately, there is no investment in the kingdom. Truth be known, there is only divestment.
Divest Definition – Webster’s Dictionary
a : to deprive or dispossess especially of property, authority, or title
b : to undress or strip especially of clothing, ornament, or equipment
We put our crown on the floor and get off our seat. Whatever you divest, don’t expect to get it back.
THE MULTIPLICATION WHEN THE VOICE OF GOD BEGINS TO SPEAK
So the dollar bills were distributed. I did what I saw. I asked the Lord, why were we doing this? Why would He have us do this? His answer was that He wanted to talk about the power of the multiplication when the voice of God begins to speak.
He always accesses through the small and not the large. He always moves where the little is, not where the big is. So turn with me to 2Kings 4.
I was sorry it wasn’t Benjamin that I sent instead of George, but that would have been $50,000. Thank God He always asks us, “What do you have? Start with what you have.”
Let’s look at Elisha in 2 Kings 4:
A certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the Lord. And the creditor is coming to take my
two sons to be his slaves.” 2 So Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?” And she said, “Your maidservant has nothing in the house but a jar of oil.” 3 Then he said, “Go, borrow vessels from everywhere, from all your neighbors—empty vessels; do not gather just a few. 4 And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons; then pour it into all those
vessels, and set aside the full ones.”
5 So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out. 6 Now it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” And he said to her, “There is not another vessel.” So the oil ceased. 7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt; and you and your sons live on the rest.” 2 Kings 4:1-7
This is a crazy story! The first verse has a whole bunch in it.
There is a certain woman. She is a wife of the sons of the prophets. There were schools of the prophets. These were God-fearing people, intentionally pursuing the voice of the Lord on the earth that day. Her husband dies. She is left in that place, without a husband and with an enlarged debt.
In those days, debts were not cancelled by bankruptcy. They were transferred until there was nothing remaining to be transferred. So, the repayment turned into her sons becoming slaves until the debt is repaid. If that wasn’t enough, they take her too. So, this woman is about to lose her sons over a debt.
I want to tell you something here that I think is true for all of us. I know that it is true for me. It’s not easy to keep up with God. I was just telling the Holy Spirit…I said, “You are so liberal. You are not conservative at all. You are just ‘give, give, give, give’. You just come into the midst of any of our lives and unlock our souls, our treasures.” Even Jesus said that when we are forgiven much, we love much.
Simon, who was the tight little Pharisee, sat there judging Jesus as this sinful woman touched Him. Jesus finally turned around to Simon and said, “Wait a minute. When I came into your house, you didn’t even kiss Me. You didn’t greet Me, you didn’t hug Me, you didn’t wash My feet. You just watched Me. But, this woman, since she came in, hasn’t stopped kissing Me. She hasn’t stopped crying and wiping My feet with her hair and washing them with her tears. She who sinned much, who has been forgiven much, now is releasing much love. You who have sinned little, have little forgiveness, therefore have little love to give.
So, the moral of the story is more forgiveness, more love and less forgiveness, less love. If we are not super grateful for being forgiven, then we are probably super-tight and super-unable to give love.
So, this woman is in a really precarious place and she comes and she exposes her problem.
Again, keeping up with the Holy Spirit is just really a difficult thing to do because He’s always, “GO!! Give!! Do it!!” His ministers do this toot. We are all saying, “Go!!” And in that going there come places that we don’t have anything to go with. Sometimes, we resource our adrenal glands. We may resource our relationships and take from other relationships to do what God is asking us to do.
You can say, “Bad pastors, bad ministers, bad church asking more than they should.” I, myself, have tried to be a good pastor and restrain asking more than I knew was accessible. But, Holy Spirit is the one Who will actually go after something that you don’t have.
You see, if forgiveness gets a hold of the church in a fashion that would come to the level of release, some of us would be overtaken with gratitude that we wouldn’t know what to do. We would go sell our homes. Once it cleared escrow, we would take all the money and drop it on the church altar. We would say, “Do whatever you want with it. I couldn’t care less. It is just freedom, freedom, freedom! I’m going free! God wants it all!”
Then two months later we would be freaking out. “What in the world did I do? Why did I do that?! I don’t even think the church did anything good with that money!”
We will do, what we do not have the resources to do, because God can do anything and loves to carry us into journeys that we cannot carry ourselves through. So we will shipwreck in the midst of it… and freak out!
Back to my waking up in Thailand time…I was waking up and I was in a very precarious place in life. On the one hand, the Lord talked about what He was coming and doing on the earth to liberate His sons and daughters from the captivity that has ensued and settled over all souls—freedom, forgiveness, inheritance, identity, calling. It’s just huge!
He said to me, “Come up higher and see from here and believe from here. It has nothing to do with you. It’s all about Me because I’m coming to set My people free. I love My body, My people saved and unsaved. I want to liberate and I AM doing it. It has nothing to do with you.”
On the flipside of that, I was waking up in Thailand with this message growing and now there was another message growing.
He said, “Steve, I want you to worship Me in your losses, and I want everything you have suffered or everything you have done unto Me, in your own stupidity. I just want you to worship Me in your losses. That’s stuff. Your life, in its loss, is more valuable to Me than your life in success. The attempt to serve Me, and the frailty of your flesh doing it, and therefore you were left stuck—I want that!”
I’ve been learning this, the release, letting-go, and forgiveness, for about 5 or 6 years. I understand we cannot worship God with loss, unless we have already forgiven. We have to process the loss and we have to feel the loss. There is a lot of shame in the body of Jesus because we can’t say to the prophet, “I tried to serve you. My husband followed you intensely and purposefully. Somehow, while we followed the prophetic word, we got ourselves in deep debt. We’re about to lose everything and we don’t know what to do”.
We could say, “You should have said that a lot sooner.” Agreed—But why don’t we say things sooner? Because we all know that we are not to be in this situation. We are to owe no man anything but to love him.
But, we have a materialistic value system of Christian success which says, “The closer I am to the Lord, the better my life will look.” This is basic, right? Sorry if I’m messing you up, but that’s the truth. That’s the world we live in.
In materialistic America, the closer we are to the Lord, the better we look. So, no. I’m not going to go tell anyone that I am in debt, until I’m desperate.
In the case of Elijah, (1 Kings 17:12) he said, “Well what do you have?” She says, “I’ve just got a little jar of oil.” So he said, “Well, great. I want you to go borrow more.” That’s kind of a funny thought. Go get in further debt, because I’m about to do something incredible with you. I’m not saying to go get in further debt. The point is, God often has to free us from our tight position of suffering through so much. He has to almost disengage us from the little laws that we have created. We have to violate all the laws that we built to protect ourselves.
So about the time we know how to not allow anyone to touch us, He says, “Let everybody touch you.” About the time we learn how to control everything so that it is squeaky clean, He says, “I want it sloppy messy.” This is because He is not about that. That is not the answer to the earth. If it was, we wouldn’t have had Jesus. We had Moses and that would have been all we would have needed. I don’t diminish Moses. I’m saying that’s the best it gets. It’s never going to get better than Moses. So, the only thing we could come into, was Someone releasing us. We encounter Him to be forgiven, not observing and doing.
So the Lord said, “I want you to worship Me in all your losses. Get up.” It’s not that hard to get up when you are jet-lagged. I began to praise Him. “Lord, thank You. I just thank You for every effort of mine that I’ve ever followed You in. I’ve known You for 39 years. My only goal was to do Your will but all I have to show for it is more loss than I have gain, more failure than I have success, and more troubles.” I then began to think about my poor kids. I was so perfect to be righteous and wanting them to be righteous. I protected them from sin to the degree that I couldn’t let them sin—to the degree that they had to go sin. God, what a control-freak I was.
“Thank You Jesus, for Your forgiveness. I worship You in my control. Here’s my control. I worship You. Thank You so much that You allow me to discover who I am. Thank You that You allowed me to walk through loss and suffering and confusion. Thank You for all the betrayal. Thank You for all the people that I hurt, that then hurt me, then we hurt each other, then we grew in how to hurt one another even more. Thank You, thank You.”
I was just in this engagement. I was worshipping. I was worshipping loss. He said, “This is the closest thing that you really have to give me that is yours. The only thing that is really yours is . This is you outside of Me. This is your ability for Me in it’s fruition.”
Fifteen years ago, my wife and I were $60,000 within reach of owing no man anything but to love him. Our house had been paid down to that amount. We had been aggressively paying the mortgage down. Then, in our first son, Nathan went off to school. I had it all worked out. I knew what I was going to do. I knew how God was going to do it. I told Nathan, “I’m going to give you $5,000 towards school this year and you’ve got to get the rest. I don’t know you’ll do it. You just have to do it.” He got student loans and worked. For the first born, we could ask anything of him and he pretty well found a way to do it.
There are things I wish I had never asked of him. He is just so strong and willing to do things. But you just get into mind-sets and standards. I wanted to obey God and I wanted to please God. God gave us that $5,000 supernaturally and it was so cool, I thought, we are on! We’re going forward.
Next year, our second child was going to school. Now we had two in college and I told her the same story. But she is not made like Nathan and my wife, Cammy said, “I just don’t think you can put that kind of pressure on her.” I thought, “I don’t think so either, but I don’t have a choice. What do we do?” Cammy said, “Maybe we have to borrow some money for her.” “NO! We don’t do that!”
But the Lord started convicting me. “You had an encounter with Me through which you learned to live in a disciplined life and you kept yourself out of debt. You kept yourself in an abased, frugal life and you put that on your kids all of their lives. There was no McDonalds, etc…so basically, He was saying “Just go borrow some money you tightwad”
Violating my own rules and the scripture, I took out an equity line and paid off the $60,000… and started spending.
Our third child, then goes off to school, then our fourth. Before you know it, over the course of these beautiful ten to twelve years, what was a $60,000 mortgage is now a $460,000 mortgage, plus $38,000 of revolving credit (I had a plan to have it all paid off by September of the next year). You move things around and now you are just responding. I was just trying to keep up with God, because I didn’t know how to say, “No, we are not going to keep functioning. I’m disengaging function. I won’t play anymore until You pay my debt.” It’s just weird. You get into stuff. I don’t about you, but you’re just trying to keep up with Jesus. I love my children. They need response here and this response there. We just start responding. It just gets weird.
David, our youngest, who is now down at UCSD in his second to last year in Engineering, had sold his car, an old Honda, early in the summer. He works as a lifeguard. He was saving his money and now he was going to buy a car before he drove back to San Diego. We found a Subaru. It looked like a beautiful car to us. The man, who sold it to us, told us it was a great car. His daughter had been driving it to college. We found out she had been driving it pretty hard. She graduated from UCLA and she was now going to get a regular car.
Anyway, all was good, but then the engine light popped on after a day. We went to our mechanic and he thought that maybe it just needed to be reset. So, he reset it. It started again, and so one thing led to another. We then proceeded to put as much money into the car as we originally paid for it. You know how that is, right?
First thing our mechanic said was, “Did you buy this from a dealer or a private party?” I wish it had been a dealer, but I thought I was getting a deal. And, my son had no money, so Papa has to pay. And Papa has no money, but he has an American Express Card. Don’t leave home without it! So here we go.
Our mechanic was so apologetic but he had to rebuild the engine. We had to get new tires and then found out that the chasse was bent. It was a Subaru. You are supposed to take them out and be able to drive hard. They did.
While this was happening, I was having a bunch of Father to Father phone calls in my mind, regarding the guy who sold us the car. I was going to call this gentleman and say, “You knew that your daughter drove the car hard and gave it back to you. We bought the car for my son and we got a lemon!”
All I could think of was that this was just control. I was fashioning a conversations to make him pay for what I just paid for. And basically, Holy Spirit was just so mean. He just said, “No. I want you to release that debt. I want you to forgive that person. I don’t want you to call him and tell him there was a problem. I don’t want you to mention it. I want you to release it.”
I responded, “That’s easy for You to say. You have all the money in the world. I have an American Express Card that’s going to be due in a month and I don’t know where it’s going to come from.”
I want to tell you, that the moral of the story is not that – Boom! At the end of the month it was there—because it wasn’t. That was when I went over to Peter and said, “Peter, Paul needs your money over here.
Paul will get your money back to you Peter, in a little bit…”
Let me say this: I was $492,000 down the road in debt. Would I do this again? Absolutely not. I know too much now. I would do an entirely different scenario and probably be in a different situation. One way or another I would run into me. My fearfulness, my insecurity, my servant mindset, I’ve got to please God, I don’t know what to do, I’ve got to raise a standard that I can’t keep, then I’ve got to DO something. I would
just do it some other way.
But I’ve learned a lot. Does that make sense? Freedom. I’ve been forgiven. I wouldn’t be telling you this if I wasn’t forgiven. Come see the Man who told me everything that I did! You wouldn’t believe the number of times Cammy and I take a walk and pray. We draw a line in the sand, praying “No More! In the name of Jesus we believe for the release, now! Forgive us! Pay it off and free us! And we’re not loaning anymore money to anyone and we’re not giving anymore money in any offerings till I have money, ever!
And, every time, God says, “Peek-a-boo! I see you! How about this? How about that? Don’t be a tightwad, GIVE!” He is just weird in that manner of working with me.
So that night, I finally settled it. Ok, ok, I won’t say a word. I will not call the previous owner. I release him. I forgive him. I bless him. I really got to the place where I could let it go. I mean you think about it once in a while, but then you remember to release the person again. Right?
I know my assignment now. I just keep that forgiveness flowing.
The last time we had baptism at our church, there was this young girl in her teens. She spoke about how her life had been a very difficult journey to this point throughout her life. She felt the Lord was just coming to wash her and give her a new place from where to live. It was one of those really touching moments. The Spirit of God came. She was crying and I was crying. I said, “Lord, wow. That was huge!”
He said, “Well, was it worth cancelling that debt?” I thought “Well, I don’t think the debt had anything to do with releasing that to happen.” He said, “Of course not. My Son caused that to happen. But you were free so that I could flow through you. If you had been all upset, angry, and tight, you would not have had the patience to allow My life and My love to flow. You’ve been forgiven much. You can forgive much. You’re in need of much, you can release much. You can let go.” It was a huge moment! A mindset shifting time.
The point is God delights in taking our life that is in a wreck and making it into beauty. He wants death from which to bring life. He wants ashes to bring forth beauty. The lock up is that we get stuck in our spot.
So, in Thailand, here I was worshipping with my losses. I said, “Lord, I want to worship You with my debt. Here You go. $490,000, all to You Jesus. At first I thought, Wo! That’s sacrilegious. That’s offering stupidity.
The Lord answered, “No, you were trying to serve Me. You were stupid, but you were serving Me, so I will receive it as an offering.” I thought, Wo! That’s huge!!! I shifted a debt to an offering in the Spirit.
Here’s the deal—I don’t know that God is really interested in fixing our life on this planet. But I know He is super interested in releasing life from heaven to the souls of people on the earth.
What I’ve been being trained in forever (which is horrific) is this:
- Loving your enemies and doing good to those who hate you
- Those who ask of you, giving
- Those who take from you, not asking for it back
- Not loving only those who love you
- Loving those who don’t love you
- And—Release, Release, Release!
- Let go, let go, let go!
- Pour out, pour out, pour out!
So, the truth is: Inside of heaven is unlimited resources of life in every situation, for which we have need and, for the exact moment we need breakthrough. It can come through the most unlikely path (Remember that little bit of oil). This access you and I get to enjoy is unlimited.
Do you know how wonderful it is to feel loved when you are wrong? I used to be so good, God HAD to like me. I made sure He had no way not to love me, because I had the fear mentality of a servant. But now, He loves me and the liberty that this allows is—WHATEVER.
I am freer today, at $490,000 in debt, than I was at $60,000 with two or three more years of us going to be debt-free!! I am debt free, inside!
This freedom is not because the pressure is not there to deal with our stuff. The pressure is still there. It is all still there. It is not going away, it’s our stuff. Taking from Peter to pay Paul. We are still in our stuff. But the life of God is uninterrupted by the restraint of man. The limitations of people are no longer locking me up to live in my future.
The other day, I had an encounter and it threw my soul into a moment of stress. I thought, I need to process that. And God said, “Why? Just jump up and come in here.” The joy and peace filled me and the love
filled me and the blessing. I thought, “God, this is illegal.” He said, “I know it is. It is illegal. It is Christ! You can live here, Steve! Live here. Release, release, release!
So, when that widow opened her heart and Elijah said, “What do you want me to do? What do you have….go and do. Pour the oil in vessels. It shifted something. It was wonderful. It was shifting and liberating.
Sometimes we get those moments of shifting and liberation. Thank God for them. But I think it is just as freeing when you get shifted inside. The liberty that is coming to the earth is the church being free in the midst of awful things. Then life can communicate. To tighten ourselves to be the Simon the Pharisee that has “got it all together” who tells Jesus that He better watch the way He operates in MY house—To the woman who breaks through and says, I’ve just got to touch Him, I’m so in love. That freedom communicates the message the earth needs to hear because we are all stuck. We are all locked up.
It’s not all about money. For some of us that is not a problem. For some of us it is emotions, to some it’s our health, to some it is relationships, to some it is just perception. Grief will just shut us down.
When God taught me to forgive Him it was huge, because I didn’t think I could forgive Him because He doesn’t need to be forgiven. It was like an accusation against Him as if He did something wrong. But He said, “The truth is you think I did a lot of things wrong, forgive Me. Release Me, let it go.” The dynamic of liberty.
So, in our church service where we gave everyone a one dollar bill, we had the single moms come up and everyone was given the opportunity to give those moms (or not) that dollar and any more money they wanted to release. This opened up hearts, released faith and brought liberty because in regards to money, it is so much a part of our life so it is the first thing that locks up. It is usually the first thing that needs to be unlock.
Today, be released and walk in freedom.

Father’s Heart Opportunities
The Heart of the Father is burning toward this Generation. Our response? To know Him, love Him, love His body, and receive His love toward us.
Join us as we respond to His cry for us to come closer. We are inviting all those between the ages of 18-40 to journey with us in one of two ways:
The first is the Father’s Heart Internship (FHI). It is an invitation to step into our identity as sons and daughters, to build community with like minded people, and to step into a mentorship by the Senior Pastor. for more information on FHI.
The Second invitation is the Father’s Heart School of Leadership (FHSOL). This is a call to those who choose to be trained in leadership, are willing to step into their destinies, overcome fear, and learn how to allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us as we serve, in love. It is a discovery of the best leader that has ever walked the face of the earth, Jesus Christ. for more information on FHSOL.
