BLESSED BEYOND CURSE (PART 21J) – PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL PROSPERITY
- Be a soul winner. Being kingdom minded will make you a soul winner. Are you comfortable without winning a single soul? Do you want to meet Jesus empty-handed? When God looks at your account, what does he see? What are you posting to your account in heaven? Poor is an acronym for passing over opportunities regularly. There is a close relationship between your soul winning and the fulfillment of your expectations. Matt. 6:32-33 says, “(For after these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Putting God first in your heart is the secret you need. There is the spiritual aspect of soul winning though, you don’t just go out there to win souls, you should be prepared if you don’t want to get unpleasant reactions. When you go out to win souls, you are breaking into the enemy territory to draw out somebody that is captured by a strongman and trying to rebrand somebody that is already branded by Lucifer. Evangelism is all about rebranding somebody who is already branded by Lucifer. What you do when you go out for evangelism is that you are breaking the seal of Lucifer and putting the seal of the Holy Ghost, the seal of God on that person, so it is warfare. It takes fire to break into the enemy territory and win a soul.
- First fruit offering goes beyond bringing your money to God, it means, where is God in your heart? When you wake up every morning, what is the first thing that crosses your mind – God or mammon? God wants to prosper you more than you realize it and he is happy when you prosper. I want my children to be more prosperous and better than me but they have a role to play; they need to align properly for it to work otherwise, it will just be a willful thinking. That is how it is with God. 3 John 2, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul propereth”. Prosperity of the soul is of utmost importance if you want to prosper and be in good health. God wants comprehensive prosperity for you; he wants prosperity of your body, prosperity of your soul, prosperity of your mind, prosperity of your will, prosperity of your emotion, and the entirety of your personality. Then, he wants everything you lay your hands on to prosper. That was part of the reason why he sent his Son. Eternal life is not what we die to inherit, eternal life starts from now. “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” John 17:3. May this be your portion in Jesus name. I’m a product of eternal life; I’m a candidate for eternal life because I know the only living God and I know his Son Jesus Christ and because I am connected to his Son, Jesus Christ. PRAY:- Heavenly Father, help me to be a soul winner in the name of Jesus. Help me to be kingdom minded. Help me to place you first in everything I do and to give you my best in Jesus name. Amen.
