True Prosperity – 3 John 2

TOPIC: True Prosperity (Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Friday, 18 May 2018)

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 8:9-12

MEMORY VERSE:
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” – 3 John 2

The MESSAGE:

Prosperity is God’s desire for His children. God never intends for any of His children to be poor. His utmost desire is expressed in the above memory verse. Prosperity in the light of the above memory verse comes from the Greek word “euodoo” which is a figurative expression meaning to succeed in business affairs. It means a success in reaching a journey (destination).

Prosperity is of different types; we have spiritual prosperity, material prosperity, financial prosperity and so on. The term prosperity has been misconceived and misused.

In most arenas, it is now equated with mammon.

Prosperity is good but a lot of emphasis is placed on material prosperity rather than the giver of prosperity.

Indeed, what is True Prosperity?

This is one in which the soul is rich in God. Jesus said, “A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of what he has –his possessions”. True prosperity is found in a soul who has met God. A soul, who is genuinely converted, repented and has been washed from his or her sins. True prosperity is found with the soul who is born again, the soul who has met Jesus Christ.

True prosperity is found with the soul who is seeking the kingdom of God first and knowing full well the additions (material and financial prosperity) are coming.

The devil has successfully deluded so many in presenting mammon as true prosperity. They see material possessions and extreme or desperate wealth acquisition alone as true prosperity, while neglecting the prosperity of their souls.

These folks do not pray any more. They do not read their Bibles nor do they evangelise Christ. They do not have the true prosperity.

True prosperity first comes when the sinner gives his life to Jesus Christ and gets born again and seeks the kingdom of God thereafter by being a Bible addict, interceding and praying for the kingdom, being an aggressive soul winner, having a daily, unbroken quite time and devotion.
