The word of God promises us that the truth will make us free.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free
But here is the reality of that scripture; truth only makes you free if you know the truth,
In order for the truth to make you free, the truth has to be unveiled before you, it has to be revealed to you for the sole purpose of receiving that which God so desperately wants you to receive.
The word of God tells us to seek wisdom and then to get understanding
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 desire and seek for revelation truth,
I desire and seek for it so that I might have life and that I might have it more abundantly.
John 10:10 (later part of verse)
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Only life abundantly is the life that makes the captive free and makes them free indeed.
When a child of God is truly seeking for truth, that truth will bring revelation and the revealing of Him, who has redeemed them, 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.
The standard of truth has its own banner and the banner of truth flies upon its own flagpole and that flagpole is anchored and secured in the rock.
And it is in this place where you become unmovable, steadfast and anchored in the truth of His word and you begin to rejoice in veiled truth that has become unveiled.
Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
Here is veiled truth that has to be unveiled,
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.
Hear the word of God.
All the promises of God in Him (Jesus Christ) are yes and they are finished unto the Glory of God by us
Why have we the church made the promises of God optional when they are not optional.
Healing is not optional,
It has been provided through the atonement of Christ
1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree,
by whose stripes ye were healed.
And yet the majority of God’s children who are saved 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 Gods children have made prosperity optional.
These promises of God are not optional
They have been provided to every born again 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, emotionally, financially and in healing
3 Jn 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
The Word of God deals with three things in this scripture,
That He (God) desires for us to prosper spiritually, physically and financially.
But the reality in most of Gods children is that they do not grasp that they are to live in prosperity instead of in poverty,
We are to live in the prosperity of health and not in the poverty of sickness and it is not an option.
We are to live in the prosperity of finances and not in the poverty of lack and it is not an option,
We are to live in the prosperity of deliverance and to be free from all condemnation and it is not an option.
It has been provided through the atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ just the same as the forgiveness of sins was provided.
The reason that so many people are so easily saved is because they understand that forgiveness had been provided through the atonement.
It has already been paid for
It has already been accomplished and it is a gift from God.
And because they understand what has been provided they immediately accept its conditions and requirements and are saved but when it comes to health and finances it is not accepted as something that has already been provided for and because of that error 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 plotheo and it means to become wealthy,
To be increased with goods
This scripture in its context is speaking about financial prosperity but I do not believe that it is limited to just finances, I believe that it pertains to all things pertaining to life and godliness.
that ye through his poverty might be rich.
Now that brings forth a question that applies to every child of God that lives in this world whether it be in the United States or in a third world country.
Does this mean then that God desires for every child of God to become financially prosperous, to have healing, to prosper emotionally, spiritually, physically
And the answer to that question is yes and amen.
The word God is not limited nor is it restricted to the economic conditions of the world.
2 Pet 1:3
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
All this is part of what the lord Jesus Christ has accomplished for you and I through His atonement on the cross,
What does prosperity mean?
It means having enough of Gods supply to meet all of your needs and to be able to minister to the needs of others,
Let me put it another way
Having enough of Gods supply to meet all of your needs and to abound to every good work.
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 motive for prosperity is not to accumulate things but rather it is to meet the needs of others and when that motive is the reason for your desire to prosper then greed never has the chance to come center stage in the life of the child of God.
In this motive there is going to be ample enough to meet every need that you have and also to meet the needs of those who the Lord has put upon your heart.
Here is truth unveiled,
It is the nature of God to bless those who bless others, when you have one hand to receive and one hand to give there will always be enough for you to prosper in abundance.
Needless to say then,
There are many people and even Gods children who have plenty of Gods supply, but they do not minister and meet the need of those who are in need, and because of that they are not prosperous according to the word of God and that is sin
And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith : for whatsoever is not of faith is sin .
Everything that we receive from God we have to receive through faith,
We have to receive salvation through faith, healing through faith, prosperity through faith, everything that we receive from God we have to receive through faith.
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.
Everything that we receive from God we must have the foundation of knowledge to receive by faith that which we desire to receive.
If you as a child of God do not have the knowledge for what you 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,
Prosperity does not happen automatically,
The Lord has supplied salvation for every single person upon the earth and yet every person is not going to be saved.
By grace salvation has been supplied to all
The reason that all will not be saved is because that which has been provided 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 to be saved?
The combination of Gods grace, what he has done independent of you and secondly how you respond to what he has provided for you whether in faith or unbelief.
It is the will of God for every person to be saved
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
And yet not every person will be saved
Because even though the Grace of God, the provision of God is present and hath appeared to all men, not every one is going to respond in faith.
Two things need to be present for Gods power to work and to become a reality in our life
God’s provision and your faith and the same is true in healing, the same is true in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, the same is true in prosperity and in deliverance.
This is the right and the inheritance of every single born again believer but it does not come to all.
Because it is not automatic.
There are two things that you must believe.
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.
The will of God is for you to prosper, to be healed, to be stable emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
It is your right as a born again child of God.
It is your inheritance.
Your attitude can not be that you know that God can heal you, save you or, prosper you.
Your attitude must be that you know it is available to you and that it is yours,
It belongs to you and it is your inheritance as a child of God.
The provision is there
The supply is there
It has all been done
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 appropriate it through the good fight of faith.
But in order to fight the good fight of faith there are some things that you 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.
You have to believe that you are receiving when you pray.
It is not about believing when you see it, not about when it comes to pass, not about when it looks like it might happen, not when all the symptoms are gone.
You must believe that you receive it when you pray.
There is no way that you can believe God to bring forth the promises of God without believing in God 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 as Savior and Lord is going to be the same way that you are going to receive everything else from God.
And to just name a few,
The baptism of the Holy Ghost, healing, prosperity, your emotions becoming stable, stability physically and restoration of your marriage.
So walk in Him.
It takes a work of faith.
