DON'T TALK AGAINST PROSPERITY IN CHRISTENDOM - PART 3

One of the signs of prosperity in a Church is found in the number of spiritual births. Strategic soul winning is one of the main facilitators of Kingdom expansion and growth. It yields tremendous spiritual births when engaged by the Spirit. It is the best means of promoting God's righteous cause because He wants to see everyone saved and come to the knowledge of Christ Jesus.





Reference: Psalm 35:27 King James Bible (KJV)

'Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.'




According to the above Scripture, why does God delight in your prosperity as His child? Because He knows it will favour His righteous cause on earth. He knows you would do the right thing even as His blessings flow in your life. He counts on you because you'll invest in soul winning. Daniel 12:3 says, 'Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.' Why are we described as wise? Because we lead many to righteousness, through financing the gospel, investing in soul winning activities and through preaching the Word of God's grace.


Furthermore the Bible says, 'The fruit of the righteous is like a tree producing life, and the one who wins souls is wise' (Proverbs 11:30 NET Bible). What is the fruit of righteousness? The NLT version defines it as 'seeds of good deeds'. It is the result of your seed planted into the good works of the Kingdom. The Bible says that it's like a tree producing life. That means your good works and investment in the Kingdom of God go a long way to give life to others, especially those who are dead in sin. That's spiritual births. Therefore, you are wise when you get involved in soul winning with your substance and through every good means.


Salvation is free but the process to get it across to many in your world and across the world is not free. It costs money. This is why God is committed to prospering you through the Kingdom principles established in His Word. What are kingdom principles? They are established fundamental truths (in form of ordinances) that serve as the foundation that governs the system of provision in God's Kingdom. To have access to our divine inheritance and to function in Kingdom prosperity, they must be consistently and faithfully applied while dealing with our finances.


For instance, tithing grants you an open heaven which God assigns over you in order to meet your needs, bless you, and keep you steadily prosperous in all you do. Giving to the poor and needy is also planting financial seeds in a good soil. We also have the first fruit offering and sacrificial gifts. They are various ways to seek God's kingdom first. Remember while sowing, you will indeed reap because the Bible says in Genesis 8:22 (NKJV) that while the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest...shall not cease. If you sow money seeds, you will reap money harvests and sometimes they go on your behalf to present themselves as divine favour in many ways.


I will tell you what to do. Start sowing into the work of God in your church, as you are led in order to promote the Kingdom expansion. Plant into every good work when the opportunity arises. Ecclesiastes 11:5-6 (NIV) reads, 'As you do not know the way the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything. In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand, for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good.'


Observing the principles of Kingdom prosperity causes kingdom wealth to locate you, guarantees unquestionable divine assistance and also secures your present and future, especially in times of uncertainty. It is the faithful way to prosper. Give now and always. Get some seed in the ground. Sowing money seeds to God and giving to the needy will trigger your lasting prosperity!


Scripture Reading - Job 22:23-24; Psalm 122:7; Job 36:11; Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15.


Guided Prayer:

Precious Father in heaven, I'm glad you that brought me into uncommon intimacy with you and your Son Jesus Christ and I'm privileged to mingle with divinity on the strength of daily fellowship, sharing your interest at heart. I'm totally addicted to observing your Kingdom principles of prosperity and in return, I'm blessed as a person who has the resources - spiritually, mentally or financially- to favour your righteous cause with whole-life prosperity. My all-round success is rooted in observing your Word and it grants me the opportunity to live my life in abundance and empowers me to bless others and further the glorious gospel of Christ. Thank you for your divine assistance, rewarding ideas and solutions, and for causing good things to happen in my life as I flow with the Word principles in Jesus' Name, Amen!
