I've been away from this blog for a while rebuilding my FREE Training business.
Now that I'm back I'll be picking up on our study on Prosperity with a brand
new study just started last week, Monday, July 16th, 2012 on the Believer'sVoice of Victory program on Trinity Broadcasting Network.
This study/wealth seminar is taught on that program by Pastor George Pearsons
from Eagle Mountain International Church in Fort Worth, Texas.
So without Further Delay:
Are You Prepared for Prosperity?
A. Are You Prepared for Prosperity?
“…I am looking to and fro across the earth for those to whom I may show Myself strong and
transfer My property and My influence in the earth out of the hands of the powers of darkness
and into the hands of My people.
“Are you prepared?
“What would you do if I put you in charge?
“Would you follow the plan that the world already has that is full of confusion and doubt and
unbelief, or would you dare rise up and say, ‘Thus saith the Lord…’?”
—Word from the Lord through Kenneth Copeland, June 27, 2011
B. How Do We Prepare for This Great Transfer of Wealth?
1. God’s Word reveals how to prepare for prosperity.
2. There is a sharp contrast between God’s covenant people and the world concerning
the handling of their wealth.
3. Their differing attitudes and character traits are clearly defined in Scripture.
4. Would we even know how to properly handle wealth when it came to us?
a. What would we do with it?
b. We must function on a higher level than the world.
5. “What would you do if I put you in charge?”
a. Now is the time to prepare for that assignment.
b. Now is the time to learn how to be rich—God’s way.
C. Proverbs 10:22—The Blessing of the Lord, It Makes Rich and He Adds No Sorrow to It
1. Rich is not a bad word—it is a biblical word.
a. To accumulate and grow
b. To become wealthy
2. The key to biblical wealth is in how it is handled.
a. Proverbs 1:32: “The prosperity of fools shall destroy them.”
b. Proverbs 28:10: “The upright shall have good things in possession.”
3. “If you will learn to follow the inward witness, I will make you rich. I will guide you
in all the affairs of life, financial as well as spiritual. I am not opposed to My children
being rich; I am opposed to them being covetous. To be rich is to have a full supply
and abundant provision.” —Word from the Lord to Kenneth E. Hagin
4. True prosperity vs. the world’s prosperity
a. “The world’s definition of prosperity is very limited in its scope—financial
ability and power. In fact, it goes only this far by its own admission. The world
itself admits that it has no power to overcome poverty, sickness, spiritual or
social ills.” —From The Laws of Prosperity by Kenneth Copeland
b. “True Prosperity is the ability to use God’s power to meet the needs of mankind
in any realm of life.” —From The Laws of Prosperity by Kenneth Copeland
c. “God’s power is the only power that covers the entire spectrum of human
existence.” —From The Laws of Prosperity by Kenneth Copeland
5. The difference is very clear.
a. Worldly wealth is all about self.
b. True prosperity is all about obeying God and serving others.
c. The world’s motivation for accumulation is acquisition.
d. True prosperity’s motivation for accumulation is distribution.
e. The worldly rich use people to get things.
f. True prosperity uses things to love people.
D. Become an Expert at Managing God’s Resources
“In a world that believes the only reason for prosperity is to buy bigger cars and finer
houses, a new Church is rising up. These believers are not deceived by greed. They know
God’s purposes for prosperity.
“These believers know God wants to bless His people so they can be a blessing. They
know He gives us power to get wealth, so He may establish His covenant (Deuteronomy
8:18) and so we ‘may have to give to him that needeth’ (Ephesians 4:28).
“God wants us to minister to a world caught up in the cycle of greed and lack. We can’t
do that if we are wondering where our next meal is coming from. God knows that. That’s
why He has provided us ‘all sufficiency in all things’—so we may have enough to
‘abound to every good work’ (2 Corinthians 9:8).
“Our part is to learn how to access His resources and how to use what He provides.
You’ve heard people say about their money and their giving, ‘It all belongs to God
anyway.’ That sounds good, but it isn’t true. Your money isn’t all God’s, and it’s not
all yours. All wealth comes from God. And He is the One who has given you the power
to get wealth. But He is very specific about what is His, what is yours and what you are
to do with what He provides.
“The bottom line is this: You are blessed to be a blessing. You oversee both your and
His resources. You oversee wealth He has provided for some very specific Kingdom
“Silver, gold and all the wealth of the earth are His. For too long the forces of Satan
have controlled those resources, using them to drag men into darkness. Now it’s time!
There you have it folks, Week 1: Are You Prepared for Prosperity?
