And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
Truth makes the captive free and when the captive is made free then the captive no longer walks as one who is a captive but as one who walks in the perfect law of liberty.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
I believe that the Lord desires each and every one of us to seek wisdom and to understand the wisdom that we are seeking.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
I believe that revelation of truth not only makes you free but brings forth life and life abundantly and when an individual is truly seeking for truth that truth brings forth revelation and revealing of Him.
And in the revelation of Him you are given choices and when the right choice is made transformation takes place and you are brought to a higher standard
Truth has its own standard, and that standard has its own banner and the banner flies upon its own flagpole and the flagpole is anchored and secured in the rock
And it is in the rock where you become unmovable and you begin to rejoice in veiled truth that is unveiled
Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
Now follow me to,
2 Cor 1:20
For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
All the promises of God in Him (Jesus Christ) are yes and amen unto the glory of God by us.
The promises of God are not optional and yet many have made them optional,
Healing is not optional, healing has been provided through the atonement of Christ and yet for the most part many of God’s children are not healed and the reason that they are not healed is because they have made healing optional.
Prosperity is not optional it also has been provided through the atonement of Jesus Christ and yet many of God’s children have made prosperity optional.
The promises of God are not optional
They have been provided to every child of God through the atonement of Him who became sin that we might be free from sin
We as children of God are to prosper spiritually, physically emotionally, and financially.
3 Jn 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
This is God speaking through John,
Beloved I wish above all things that you may prosper spiritually, physically and financially, even as your soul prospers.
But most of Gods children do not grasp that to live or prosper in health and finances is not an option, it is a promise and that promise has been provided through the atonement the same as forgiveness of sins.
The reason that so many people are so easily saved is because they understand that forgiveness has been provided for through the atonement
They have understanding that it has already been paid for and has already been accomplished.
It is a gift from God
And immediately they accept its conditions and requirements and are saved.
But when it comes to health and to finances it is not accepted as something that has already been provided for and because of that error in their lives very few enter into that place of truth so that truth can be unveiled so that they can be made free.
2 Cor 8:9
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
The Greek word for might be rich is ploo-the-o and it means to become wealthy, to be increased with goods, the
Scripture is pertaining to financial prosperity.
Now I have one question to ask,
Does this mean then that God desires for every child of God to become financially prosperous
Does this mean that God desires for every child of God to have healing and to walk in healing,
Does this mean then that God desires every child of God to prosper emotionally, prosper spiritually, physically and financially.
Yes, Yes, Yes.
All this is part of what the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished through his atonement on the cross
So what does prosperity mean?
It means having enough of Gods supply to meet all of your needs plus minister to the needs of others or in other words having enough of Gods supply to meet all of your needs and to abound to every good work as stated in
2 Cor 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
The real definition or the real motive behind prosperity is not to accumulate things for yourself, it is to meet the needs of others in need and when that motive is the reason for your desire to prosper then greed never has the chance to become center stage in your life.
In this motive there is going to be ample enough to meet every need that you will ever have,
It is the Nature of God to bless those who bless others.
And when you have one hand to receive and one hand to give there will always be enough for you to prosper in abundance.
I need to say it again
What is prosperity
It means having enough of Gods supply to meet all of your needs plus minister to the needs of others.
Needless to say then,
There are many people including Gods children who have plenty of Gods supply, but they are not ministering and meeting the needs of those who are in need and because of that they are not prosperous according to the word of God and that is sin.
You probably do not like what you are hearing but the truth will make you free if you will allow the truth to be unveiled.
Now I need to make some statements here,
Everything that we receive from God we have to receive through faith, you have to receive salvation through faith, you have to receive healing through faith, you have to receive prosperity through faith, everything that we receive from God we have to receive through faith.
2 Cor 1:20 AGAIN
For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
Everything that we receive from God we must have a foundation of knowledge to receive by faith that which we desire to receive.
If you do not have the knowledge for what are you going to believe for, how are you going to believe for something that you do not know.
You have to receive that knowledge so that the knowledge you receive can impart to you faith to begin to believe for that which you have come into the revelation of.
Salvation does not happen automatically, healing does not take place automatically and prosperity does not happen automatically.
The Lord has supplied salvation for every single person upon the earth and yet not every person is going to be saved.
By grace salvation has been supplied to all.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
The reason that all will not be saved is because that which has been provided for by grace will not be accepted by faith
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
What does it take for every child of God to be saved?
The combination of Gods grace and what he has done independent of you and secondly how you respond to what he has provided for you.
Whether you believe or do not believe,
it is the will of God for every person to be saved and yet not every person will be saved
Because the grace of God, the provision of God which is present for every one, but not every one is going to respond to that provision in faith.
Two things need to be present for Gods power to work and for it to become a reality in our life
God’s provision and your faith.
The same in healing, the same in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the same in prosperity and the same in everything that God has for us.
This is the right and the inheritance of every single believer but it does not come to all
Because it is not automatic
You must believe in Gods provision and you must believe that it is for you
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
It is Gods will for you to prosper, it is Gods will for you to be healed; it is Gods will for you to be and abounding emotionally, spiritually and physically.
It is your right, your inheritance and your guarantee.
You are correct I said your guarantee.
Our attitude can not be that we know God, that He can heal us, save us and prosper us.
Our attitude can not be that we know that what he has is available for us,
Our attitude must be that it is ours as a child of the living God
The provision is there
The supply is there
It has all been done and the inheritance is ours.
There is only one thing left for you to do and that is to come into the knowledge of that provision and then by faith possess it through the good fight of faith.
But in order to fight the good fight of faith there are some things that we need to know and believe.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
You have to believe that you receive when you pray, not when you see it, not when it comes to pass, not when it looks like it might happen, not when all the symptoms are gone,
You must believe that you receive it when you pray.
Tell me how you can believe God to bring forth the promises of God without believing for them
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
What does that scripture mean?
It means the same way that you received salvation; the same way that you received Jesus Christ is going to be the same way that you are going to receive everything else from God.
The baptism of the Holy Ghost, healing, prosperity, stability in your emotions, stability physically and spiritually.
So walk ye in him.
It takes a work of faith.
