How To Buy Without Money

This is not an article about using other people money to obtain gain nor is it an article about trading goods for other goods. This is an article about a biblical principle; how we can buy without money because money is not the currency of heaven, the blood of Jesus is its currency.

Isaiah 55:1 read Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Yes, come; buy wine and milk without money and without price. We must first understand that Jesus is the living water. He said in John 4:13 whoever drinks of this water will thirst again but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst but the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.

Isaiah 55:1 gave an invitation to whomever thirsts by saying; come to the water, come to Jesus and when we do; it will enable us to buy without money because His blood has paid the price for all of our provision. His blood is the currency of heaven, not money so if there is a need in our life his blood has already covered it but He said in Mark 11:23-24 for assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain be removed and be cast into the sea and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them and you will have them. If you would notice in this passage of scripture money was not a requirement to get what you need or want; only what you say and believe is the requirement and that is how we buy without money.

I have a friend in Christ that have a very low income presently but the things that she gets is astronomical; one day she was telling me about something that she had been blessed with and immediately Isaiah 55:1 came to my mind. I told her about this scripture and she praised the Lord for it because she is a living witness that you can buy without money because of the blood of Jesus, which is our heavenly currency.

The word of God says that our citizenship is in heaven so it would stand to reason that that is where our provision would come from. Christians should not look to the world for their provision but they should look to God who would use the world for their provision.

I am not politically inclined as far as following the present candidates for the presidency because I know that regardless of who is elected, I will be taken care of by God. I do however pray for this nation and for those who are in authority as the scripture command but I do not look to this world’s system for my help. My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth and all that is in it.

If there is something that we need or want and does not have the money to get it then we should pray to the Lord as Jesus said in Mark 11:24 therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them and you will have them. So we do not need money to be blessed with the things that we want because the blood of Jesus is our currency and it will never run out or fail.

His blood covers everything that concerns us. I remember when I lived in a mobile home and for about five or six years I paid only five dollars a month for my energy bill and my home was totally electric. The blood of Jesus did that for me; now I live in my husband’s family home and it is paid for so there is no rent or mortgage.

I live a leisure life because of the blood of Jesus and money is not always required to buy; if it were not so, Isaiah 55:1 would not have been written.
