Where Is 'Let The Poor Says I Am Rich' Written In The Bible-joel 3:10 by WAP: 3:53pm On Feb 18, 2013
I am wondering if the Bible ever says 'Let's the poor says I am rich' as we always mis-quote Joel 3:10. ''Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong'.

We add this phrase to Joel 3:10 when our prosperity emphasised Preachers want to get something from us.

Don Moen only added this to his song, but this is never written anywhere in the Bible.

What is our view on this?

WAP, Good catch and well spotted. The Bible never says or said "Let's the poor says I am rich"

God have mercy on souls, if mega-pastors such as him here cannot correctly quote the bible

Fabrication at work from
0:50 - 0:55,

Hear him deliberately adding a false verse and insult-upon-injury attributing it to the bible.

Joagbaje, you are right that Don Moen didn't say the phrase is from the bible

but Pastor Brian Houston thinks otherwise and is telling his congregation and the whole wide world the phrase is in the bible

Pastor Brian Houston just claimed in the video clip that
the "Let's the poor say I am rich" phrase is scriptural and is in the bible

i.chuka, the point is about doing a Berean due diligence and not necessarily to take all the pastors preaches or says as gospel without verifying or confirming

To be forewarned of misleading preachers is to be forearmed to safeguard your soul

I don't think the "greed" gospel preachers would be too keen to comment on this "discovery".

2cor6:10 comes to mind....the poor and rich thing means u can be physically poor but spiritually rich. I will encourage us to look pass riches on this earth when reading the bible.

D last guy made a very fine point about 'Not trying to understand d Bible's perspective of Riches with the world or our literal understanding of Riches. We don't store up treasures on Earth, bt in Heaven. Theses are core truths we nolonger hear in d church. 2 Cor 8:9 says For Christ Became poor that we may become Rich, its is only a silly man that would interpret this verse with an Earthly understanding. It simply means 'He forsook His Identity (Phil 2:5), Throne in Heaven and came to Earth and dying for our since that we may be Rich (In Eternal life, John 3:16). Therefore in Conclusion, ur Level of Riches is determined not by ur pocket bt 'By ur level of Knowledge of Him'. #QED
