LIVE BY FAITH: TIME TO ACCEPT BIBLICAL PROSPERITY
In Revelations 13:16-17, the Bible warns us that in the future, a demonic authority will rise and force everyone to receive a mark. That mark is also called the mark of the Beast. Those who receive the mark will be allowed to buy and sell. Those who don’t receive the mark will not be allowed to buy and sell.
Can you see how the enemy wants control over the economy and politics to implement his agenda?
There is a good case for Christians to understand the ‘nitty-gritty’ of Biblical prosperity in order not to fall for the trap of the enemy.
In Matthew 24:7-8, Jesus gives a description of the things that would happen before his return. He said: “ Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.”
Unless you have been living on planet Mars for a while, you will certainly notice that inflation has had an impact all over the world. That inflation is now destroying the lives of many poor and middle families across the world.
In the country where I live, a few people have decided to end their lives in order to escape the hardship of food inflation.
If you look at the current world situation, you will notice that global hunger and famine are trying to enter in a subtle way. Not only is there an inflation problem, but there is also a group of people working hard at replacing natural food with non-real food.In a certain Western country, there is a man who had bought half of the agricultural land in order to control food supply (that country is the most dominant nation in the world- let the reader understand)
From this observation, you can see that Satan is working hard at controlling the economy and the food supply.
If people are ready to end their lives, to turn to witchcraft in order to escape hunger, imagine what they would do if they were proposed to take the mark of the beast in exchange for access to food or any other services.
The good news is: “Jesus never said that there will be famines everywhere. He said that there will be famines in various places.”
This means that now and in the future, there will be people with faith who will be able to access food by faith. There will be places where the devil will not have access.
If God tells you to relocate somewhere, just do it. Sometimes, faith can prompt someone to move somewhere else.
This is not the time nor the hour to criticize or vilify Biblical principles of prosperity. This is the time to believe and practice what the Bible says.
This is the time to practice:
Honor as written in Exodus 20:12, in Proverbs 3:9, Malachi 3:10, in Romans 12:10
Generosity as written in Luke 6:38.
In an era where authorities are now canceling the livelihood of many, this is the time to seek good work from God through the strategy of generosity mentioned in 2 Corinthians 9:6-9.
In 2 Corinthians 9:6-9, the Bible says:
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”
Even if Satan and his minions work hard at canceling the careers of many, we know that in spite of that, through our generosity, God will bless us with abundance of work.
In order to succeed in canceling your career, in order to plunge into famine, Satan wants YOU to deny the veracity of the Biblical principles of prosperity. The Church is filled with Christians who partially believe the Bible.They believe in this but they don’t believe in that.
Times are evil. This is not the time to debate the Bible.
This is the time to live by faith.
Rather start now, because it will get worse later.
