Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 10:33am On Dec 15, 2018
Anytime we hear the word "prosperity" we should know that its not all about money.sometimes,we christians keep getting it wrong!
I can liken prosperity to a baloon that was just inflated and began to float and fly.inside the baloon you have trueriches,wealth,exceeding greatness, health,treasures of excellence,financial,material,physical and spiritual buoyancy
But we all know that without air,we cannot fill up the baloon.
i liken that air to "salvation" which is the first prosperity of "our soul".it should be noted that without the salvation ofour soul,we cannot prosper.
3rd John 2"beloved,i pray that you may PROSPER in all things and be in health,just as your soul "PROSPERS"
MUCH EMPHASIS WAS PLACED ON THE SOUL OF MAN BECAUSE WITHOUT THE SALVATION OF MAN,ALL OTHER PROSPERITY WOULD BE PROFITLESS AND BE IN EXCHANGE FOR THE SOUL OF MANKIND.
ITS NOT A FALSE STAT WHEN JESUS CHRIST"SAID WHAT SHALL IT PROFITH A MAN TO GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOOSE HIS OWN SOUL
SATAN THE DESTROYER OF MAN SOUL IS READY
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 10:45am On Dec 15, 2018
To Give mankind prosperity but in exchange for the condemnation of his "SOUL"
Therefore,the law of prosperity states that a man soul must therefore be saved in christ to prosper on earth and eternally other wise his unsaved soul would be destroyed in hellfire eternally while gaining prosperity from satan at the expense of his soul!
Any prosperity outside christ would end in eternal torment and multiple sorrows on earth.
such would entail the man to trade his soul with the devil and marine mammon,dark societies in order to prosper for a lifetime but suffer for an eternity in hell!
it is no wonder Jesus christ told a man
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 12:07pm On Dec 15, 2018
Another man that life consisteth not in the abundance of things he possesed"
That was a man who had an inheritance dispute.luke 12:13-15
unfortunately,another man was called a rich fool because he kept laying up treasures for himself but not towards GOD.
Many christians and big ministers have become rich fools because they do not help poor fellow christians.some of them have left GOD and pursued the treasures of the dark eg money wizardry ,money rituals,kinggold rituals.many who were truly prospering in the lord secretly embraced the secret societies and gained popularity fame.
its a pity,most of their followers having idolized them are not aware of the transformation of these men of GOD into satanic Apostles.it is quite sad that majority are laying up for themselves treasures on earth where moth and dust doth corrupt!
Treasures that thieves can break into.
A christian must sit down and think, "why do i want to prosper?
why do i want to be wealthy,to be rich and become a milli or billionaire ?
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 12:26pm On Dec 15, 2018
The foolishness of a prospering christian who allows himself to be possessed by his possesions is so high that they do not know what to do with the money again but keep making and aquiring vanity!!!
Today,the mega churches are making a bigmistake in their outreach.
sinners who are suppose to be saved during evangelism are not because they see the church as a wealth making factory than a wealth creating factory.in otherwords,the souls of these sinners are not saved due to the stereotyped and business methodical way of the church.if we are to learn this lesson,then we would see why christ told a rich man to sell all that he had and give to the poor and follow him so that he can have treasure in heaven.
its rather unfortunate the church is buying and taking from poor members and from the poor and having no treasure in heaven,lastly they depart from christ and folloW MAMMON!!!
IT IS FOR THIS REASON MANY PEOPLE IN THESE MEGA CHURCHES ARE NOT SAVED.THEIR SOULS ARE NOT SAVED IN CHRIST.
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 8:28pm On Dec 15, 2018
Those souls must be saved first before thinking of prospering.
so without salvation all forms of prosperity is a waste.
No man can by anymeans give to GOD a ransom for the soul of a brother because the redemption of mankind is precious and their life would always cease-psalm 49:6-9.
"That he should continue to LIVE ETERNALLY AND NOT SEE THE PIT
VERSES 16 AND 17 Is the worst statement for a prospering man without eternal life(Jesus Christ )in him.so it should be noted that to prosper in all things you must be accept the giver of true riches Jesus christ!!
you must have layed up treasures in heaven.
Seek ye first the kingdom of GOD and its Righteousness and all other things(PROSPERITY)shall be added unto you.-mt 6:33
One must not worry about life because all things on earth would pass away.matt 6:25-31
Therefore True prosperity pursues a real child of GOD and a true son of GOD .
Lets see some examples of prosperous men in the bible!!!
Abraham.
Issac
Jacob
Abraham first prospered in egypt-Gen:13.lot chose
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 1:23pm On Dec 17, 2018
We understand that this prosperity was from the lord and it was always them buying lands and having properties known as biblical inheritance that passed down from the generations of Abraham to Issac and Jacob.
These great men received the laws of God,the commandments and got the promise.
remember how it took long for them.but whatever they laid their hands on prospered.
so let it be known that GOD owns all true prosperity and satan controls false prosperity!
Then a certain man named Joseph was sold as a slave by his blood brothers into the land of slavery egypt.The lord prospered him-Genesis 39:1-6.It was known by his master.Joseph was now given ownership of all that potiphar had because of this prosperity.God 's prosperity is not tied to any location or limited by time or space but its all in all.even when Joseph came out of prison after 12years for refusing zelicah's sexual advance and was sexuallyblackmailed ,he became a the Prime minister of Egypt.Therefore he did not sweat or run after prosperity.
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 8:23pm On Dec 17, 2018
Therefore God had in the beginning proclaimed this prosperity in the beginning when he created Adam and eve
Gen 1:28"Be fruitful and multiply;fill the earth and subdue it;have dominion over the fish of the sea,over the birds of the air,and over the cattle,over all the earth and over every creeping thing that moves on earth.
NB:This prosperity from GOD was worldwide and around man.man's soul was prospering,created to live eternally with farming as his first occupation.minerals and natural resources were nearby mankind - gen 2:10-14.That prosperity was Natural and automatic.Adam had his first home, animals were his servants and means of transport,he needed a wife to fufil part 2 of that prosperity-fruitfulness and multiplication.it was awesome and adam owned everything.
it continued until sin entered the whole word and destroyed that prosperity" mankind lost the prosperity of his soul ie eternal life making everything perishable under him and he too became subject to death meaning he lost that power.
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 8:42pm On Dec 17, 2018
That power to live eternally.
in order for mans soul to prosper again,Jesus christ had to come and die for mankind to inherit an imperishable and immortal life and obtain an imperishable prosperity in christ and on earth during his lifetime.
Thus man must have his soul prosper in order to prosper in all things.
we have to look at the "PROSPERITY OF THE WICKED" and why the wicked thrive so much in all things on earth,yet satan cannot save their soul at the end of their lifetime but destroys them in hell and with false vain promises& broken covenants in exchange for their soul with a very mammoth fame,popularity,prosperity in the world.
PROSPERITY OF THE WICKED-since the fall of mankind,the world became the kingdom of satan and a warzone when Jesus christ came to the world to die for mankind and proclaim the kingdom of God in the hearts of men who accepted salvation through christ.
satan had been at constant war with The kingdom of God on earth.satan had no power over the souls of men,but only over their
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 10:15am On Dec 21, 2018
their bodies and that was why he claims control over all what God has made yet he owns nothing than that which he stole.satan stole the rod of rulership,dominion and subduership from adam and made adam to be subject to death,and man to serve all things created than the creator and this is why satan has no power over the soul of man than to obtain it by deceit and man should submit his soul for a vain and vanishing prosperity on earth but for an eternal lake of fire having rejected GOD.satan deceived man and abused the freewill of mankind to make him to be an enemy of GOD.GOD permits satans deception because of his lies against GOD and his false claims that GOD cheated him and took his rulership away and gave it to adam(man) who is dust.satan lashes out after being unable to control HEAVEN!
He has come down with great wrath and an offer.
This offer is to make man worship satan then they would get the wholeworld in exchange for their soul to satan.
SATAN'S OFFER
SATAN made an offer to Jesus christ
Re: Christians And The Real Prosperity!!! by Honesty007(m): 10:53am On Dec 21, 2018
1)The imperishable to be made perishable-satan knew that man was now perishable,he therefore wanted the words of God to be made perishable ,he told Jesus christ to turn the things God created into physical things made to perish.
if Jesus christ had made that stone become bread,he would have made the word of GOD non-existent for the power to create things eternal would become void.it also meant that satan had no power over the word of GOD but to turn it into a trading thing as manyfalse ministers and true ones who started well are now turning ministry and calling into commercialism.satans first offer is to give man a perishable thing in exchange for what God has given him eternally.man who accepts this offer is now serving satan than GOD .it was satan who started trading his GOD given power for vainthings and seeking to overthrow GOD.
