It Is God's Will For His People To Prosper
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray to God, above all things, that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Genesis 2:10-12 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it, which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
Deuteronomy 8:18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is He that giveth thee, power to get wealth,
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then, thou shalt make
thy way prosperous, and then, thou shalt
have good success.
Acts 20:35 I have shewed you all things,
how that so labouring ye ought to support
the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed
to give than to receive. Receiving is good.
Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall
men give into your bosom. For with the
same measure that ye mete withal it shall
be measured to you again.
It Is God's Will For His People To Prosper
Psalm 35:27 Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause. And let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified,””” Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”””
Prosperity,,,, is a Gift from God
Ecclesiastes 5:19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labor;
this is the gift of God.
Poverty is a curse………..
According to Deuteronomy 28, the curse of poverty was to come upon God's children if they disobeyed him. Contrary to some religious doctrine, the Old Testament never views poverty and lack as a blessing from God. Poverty and lack was (and is) a curse.
Deuteronomy 28:15-18 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. Cursed shall be thy
basket and thy store. Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it. Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.
But wait,,,, Galatians 3 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed,
and heirs according to the promise. Gen 12:2
I will bless thee, and Thou shall be a blessing
