Prosperity is about demonstrating the Kingdom of heaven on earth. I want My people to prosper in order to draw others to Myself. I want My people to prosper in order to demonstrate My love to a dying and hurting world. It is not about gaining wealth for oneself. That is a false doctrine.
I will entrust the riches of the Kingdom to those that will steward it for My purposes. For I am a rich King. I own it all. Everything you have is Mine and I have freely blessed you in order that you would be a blessing to others. I am generous and My people should be generous. Lay up your treasures in heaven where they cannot be destroyed. Use your wealth and influence to bring My Kingdom to earth. Be a blessing!
Forget about running to the hills to escape, and stockpiling your food and supplies. Am I not your provider? Didn’t I say not to worry about tomorrow? Instead, seek first My Kingdom and My righteousness and then all these needs will be taken care of. Take no thought for your life and what tomorrow brings, for I hold the future in My hands.
Genesis 12:2-3 New Century Version (NCV)
2 I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you. I will make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will place a curse on those who harm you. And all the people on earth will be blessed through you.
Matthew 6:19-21 New Century Version (NCV)
19 Don’t store treasures for yourselves here on earth where moths and rust will destroy them and thieves can break in and steal them. 20 But store your treasures in heaven where they cannot be destroyed by moths or rust and where thieves cannot break in and steal them. 21 Your heart will be where your treasure is.
Matthew 6:32-33 English Standard Version (ESV)
32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
