PROSPERITY- A BLESSING OR A CURSE?
The answer should be obvious! Oddly enough, in the minds of many people, it's not! The reason is simple: Satan has spent years trying to confuse the issue, and, for the most part, he has been successful. He has frightened people into believing there's something inherently evil about money. He has promoted poverty by spreading lies. "Poverty is noble," he has said. "Poverty will make you more pious.". "Poverty is God's way of teaching you a lesson of humility."
How many have been taken in by his deceptions? MILLIONS! In fact, in some way, those lies have affected even many Christians. This is why it's important for us to go back to the Word of God and find out what He has to say about the subject, because, until you do, you'll never be completely free to prosper. Never! So, the purpose of this ministry and website is to get this issue settled right here, right now-forever! What's the real truth about poverty and prosperity.
The wise man King Solomon said:
18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
15 The rich man's wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty
Poverty destroys! When you look at the pictures of African babies with bloated stomachs and flies buzzing around their eyes, it's easy to see there's nothing noble about poverty! It's obvioulsy the work of Satan, but, what people fail to realize is this:
It's just as much the work of the devil when we have the "Anti-Prosperity" cultists and their followers coming against prospertiy, riches and wealth when God has clearly said:"....IT IS HE THAT GIVES YOU THE POWER TO GET WEALTH(DEUTERONOMY 8:18)! Clearly, someone is lying! Who? GOD, or man?? We already know the answer to that question...RIGHT?
Is it any wonder that Satan has gone to great lengths to convince people that poverty is a blessing in disguise. Poverty is his creation! If he can con you into believing and passively accepting it as a "gift" from God, he can steal you blind and you won't do one thing to stop him! So, don't buy into his lies! Get your thinking in line with the "WORD OF GOD." Poverty is-absolutely, and always will be a curse!
To all those who have "GODPHOBIA", to all the mockers, scorners, and unbelievers, and those who are "Brainwashed" by the Religious doctrines and traditions of men who are fighting against God, his word, and his assignments, here is his response:
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.(PSALM 2:1-5)
READ BELOW HOW KING JOSIAH LOST HIS LIFE BY BEING ARROGANT AND INTERFERING WITH GOD'S WORK
19 In the eighteenth year of the reign of Josiah was this Passover kept.
20 After all this, when Josiah had prepared the temple, Necho king of Egypt came up to fight against Charchemish by Euphrates: and Josiah went out against him.
21 But he sent ambassadors to him, saying, What have I to do with thee, thou king of Judah? I come not against thee this day, but against the house wherewith I have war: for God commanded me to make haste: forbear thee from meddling with God, who is with me, that he destroy thee not.
22 Nevertheless Josiah would not turn his face from him, but disguised himself, that he might fight with him, and hearkened not unto the words of Necho from the mouth of God, and came to fight in the valley of Megiddo.
23 And the archers shot at king Josiah; and the king said to his servants, Have me away; for I am sore wounded.
24 His servants therefore took him out of that chariot, and put him in the second chariot that he had; and they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died, and was buried in one of the Sepulchres of his fathers. And all Judah and Jerusalem mourned for Josiah.(2 Chronicles 35:19-24)
In the above referenced scriptures, we see how God looks upon those who are coming against his word, his message, and those whom he has called and commissioned to proclaim his message. All leaders, followers, and members of the "Anti-Prosperity" cult are on very dangerous ground indeed! It's one thing to disagree with, and not believe a particular message. It's another whole level when they are deliberately coming against, ridiculing, and persecuting those who do believe and proclaim the message of Prosperity. If you read carefully, God actually laughs and scoffs at those who are doing so, and then releases his wrath! No debating about that. There it is plain and simple! God winks at ignorance, but, when advanced light comes, then he holds accountable those who are in defiance!
In the second set of scriptures, the King himself was warned not to interfere with God's messenger, and the task assigned. Even after being warned, he presumptuously.assumed his "Kingship" would supercede God's warning. END RESULT: "DEATH!" So, God's message to the "Anti-Prosperity" cultists is: "Your arms are way too short to box and wrestle with God! There are serious consequences as a result of "fighting against God!"
This crowd is totally deceived by the great deceiver himself: Satan! If Lucifer could persuade one third of heavenly angels to rebel against God in a perfect environment, what can he do to those who are human and are spiritually dead in an imperfect environment? The answer is obvious!!(READ THAT AGAIN!).
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.(2 Corinthians 4:3-4)
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. (2 Timothy 2:24-26)
So, if you are a believer and Christian who knows that God wants you wealthy, now, you understand why the "Anti-Prosperity" cultists act the way they do.
They are "U.T. I." Under The Influence of Satan himself!
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood(people), but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.(Ephesians 6:10-12).
So, don't let this crowd back you down, intimidate you, or, scare you out of your Covenant Of Wealth that you have with God....because:
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?(Romans 8:31)
IT IS FINISHED!!!(JOHN 19:30)
