But as with any treasure,
it will only be found if it is diligently sought after.
What is the substance of the things you are hoping for, and what is the evidence of the thing that are seen in your life?
Material stuff of heavenly treasure?
(Heb 11:1 &6 NKJV)
(1) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (6) But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Either God Is Prejudiced Or Someone Missed A Few Scriptures
The Following are only a very few of the conditions that exist in the church because of the lack of understanding about Godís plan for prosperity.
Needs In The Church
The list could go on until the return of Christ.
The following scriptures will show that God has a plan for the Body of Christ, His family, the family of God. We, the family of God, have a responsibility to care for each other, as any family would.
Godís Plan For Prosperity Provides For All Members of His Family, His Plan is Centered On Giving, Giving That Will Provide Treasure In Heaven.
(satanís Prosperity Provides Possession & Control of Stuff.)
Because of the lack of understanding of what Godís prosperity is, satan is able to come in with his plan of prosperity. This results in The Lust Of The Eyes, Lust Of The Flesh, Pride Of Life And Power of Greed. We are either moving toward The Word And His Truth which is centered on giving, or towards control of or possessing the things of this world. satanís primary goal is to get our minds off the things that are important to God and on the stuff in this world. God does not need or want us to worry about stuff.
(Mat 6:31 & 32 NKJV)
"(31) Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
(32) "For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
The responsibility that we do have, is the care for others in the body of Christ that live below what could be considered and acceptable life style. What would this acceptable life style be. This life style would be that which is equal to the life style of the whole family of God on this earth. Also by taking our mind and reason for our existences of our self, the attitude that we now have toward the of spread of the gospel would greatly change. When we go shopping on Saturday morning, it would be not be for the purchase of a bunch of stuff, but for the redemption of a bunch of souls. Just of the top of your head, which do you think would be more pleasing to God. Which would gain us the most heavenly treasure. Which will last forever.
God has not changed, God Is The Same Yesterday Today And Forever
(Deu 15:7 & 8 NKJV)
If you really had a chance to lend to God would you turn him down?
There are hundreds of chances all around everyday. The only question is how much are you lending?
(Prov 19:17 NKJV)
what he has given.
Does God Lie? Will He Really Pay Us Back! Then Why Would We Not Give Away All, Like He Asked. Does Faith Have Anything To Do With This? So Do We Believe Or Not?
(Deu 15:9 - 11 NKJV)
9 "Beware lest there be a wicked thought in your heart, saying, 'The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand,' and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing, and he cry out to the LORD against you, and it become sin among you.
10 "You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the LORD your God will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand.
11 "For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, 'You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.'
Yes, this is a big request, to the natural man, to give of all that we have to the needs of others. But to those that will willingly choose to live by faith, all things are possible to that man.
