~ Christians and Money ~

Job3:25 ~ For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon
me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.

You are going to operate on the faith belief system or the fear belief system. If you operate in fear where your money is concerned, poverty will come upon you. Poverty is bondage. God gets no glory from it.

God’s desire for you, is to prosper you, you MUST believe this
if you are going to prosper.

3 John 1:2 ~ Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest
prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Prosperity is NOT for your glory but for His. To deny God’s right to prosper you materially through unbelief is to deny God’s right of Lordship in that area of your life. Your focus should not be prosperity, but your love and obedience to the Lord. Being obedient to God in your finances and trusting Him to prosper you is faith and will attract prosperity.

It is God’s nature to give because giving is the chief expression of love. Ask yourself; how much of God’s nature is being expressed through you? You will never have the faith to receive from God unless His nature is being expressed through you by giving to others. Giving is a release of your faith. Giving is an expression of love.

This is the basic principle of the Kingdom; sowing and reaping. Your ability to believe God for prosperity is tied to your love of giving.

There are three reasons that a person won’t give: unbelief, fear or covetousness. Those are the same three reasons that ministers won’t preach on it.

2 Corinthians 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.

RICH!? … REALLY!? That is what it says. God is not opposed to you being rich. He is opposed to you being covetous. The purpose of being rich is giving, not getting. Money is only a means, not an end. When you make money the end of your efforts rather than using it to bless, you corrupt it and it becomes immoral.

“Money is neither moral or immoral, it is a-moral. You give it morality or immorality by how you relate to it.”

The easier it is to give it away, the easier it will be to receive.

Luke 6:38 ~ Give, and it will be given to you: good measure,
pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
