The Trading Floor

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We frequently receive questions about chess boards and trading floors. This article is a collection of what we know so far.

Revelation about the trading floor is still unfolding, and we are still working on gaining an understanding of what this all means Biblically. However, we believe that the trading floor is a spiritual location where Satan “bargains” and makes trades with humans in some fashion. It could be that the trading floor came about when mankind “traded” their authority over earth for the ungodly knowledge of good and evil. (which came about from eating fruit from tree of knowledge of good and evil).

An example of how the trading floor seems to be used is when participants in masonic rituals trade the blessings of their descendants in order gain blessings for themselves.

Here is a sample prayer. This provides a starting point when working with the Holy Spirit on this topic:

In the name of Jesus Christ, as a representative of my family line, I repent for all those who participated in ungodly trading. 

I repent for all those who traded, cashed-in or used as collateral the health or prosperity of future generations and stole it for themselves.

Lord, I ask that you would now cancel all ungodly debts off my family line., off my life and all future generations.

I ask Lord, that you also clean off and return to me anything that has been lost, stolen or given away.

Lord, today I accept your jubilee, which is available to me through Jesus Christ.

I ask that you now restore the Godly birthright you’ve ordained for my family and I.

We do not currently believe that any Godly trading takes place on this floor.

I would not say that we should be “trading” in our sickness and disease, because we don’t actually have anything to offer in trade. It is only through God’s grace that we are healed, and as you pointed out, Jesus already took care of the only payment that will ever be required when He died on the cross.

These passages mention trading:

Ezekiel 28:16, Ezekiel 28:18, Revelation 18:11, Revelation 18:13
