God Wants You to Prosper

October 18, 2020

Plant Your Seed

 Nurture Your Seed

 Expect Your Harvest

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

Prosper – have good success; be profitable; succeed in reaching

It is clear that God wants us to be profitable and have good success.  Success is not gained by having many material things such as a big house, 3 cars, and 3 closets full of clothes.

 Success is using your God-given talents for the glory of God.

Success

 Determination

Initiative

Motivation

Perseverance

Self-confidence

 No, I’m not just listing nouns, but qualities, needed for achievement of success.

Success, that achievement that everyone desires and wishes to experience.  While  traveling the road of success, one

experiences many mountains, which must be climbed.

Although it seems impossible at times, it can be accomplished only if one possesses:

 Perseverance

Self-confidence

Determination

Initiative

Motivation

 

And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to me in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances, and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].   (I Corinthians 9:8)

According to the Word of God in II Corinthians 9:8, God is the source for all your blessings, and He will abundantly provide all that you need to do what He has called you to do.

Plant Your Seed

Joyce Meyer wrote a book entitled “Prepare to Prosper”.  In this book, she indicated that it is important to plant seeds in the Kingdom of God.  Once you plant seeds then a harvest will result.  If you never plant seeds, you will never reap a harvest.  In Galatians 6:7, the Word of God says whatever you sow, you shall reap.  For example, if you sow love and kindness in the lives of others, people will love you and be kind to you.   On the other hand, if you sow jealousy and strife, you will experience this in your life. When you sow your time and talents by serving others through ministry, you reap the benefits that come from helping others, such as encouragement and joy.

If you sow (give) financially into a ministry, then you will receive an increase in your personal finances.  However, when you sow financially, it is important for you to make sure that the ministry you are sowing into teaches sound doctrine (the true and whole Word of God).  In this way, you insure that you are sowing in good fertile ground that will reap a harvest.

 Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure pressed down and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom.  (Luke 6:38)

When you give, this sets in motion the process of receiving.  If you never give, you will never receive.

. . . It is more blessed to give than to receive.  (Acts 20:35)

God makes us prosperous not only physically, but also spiritually (increased revelation and understanding of the Word of God) and materially (land and goods).

Many Christians have a “Poverty” mentality.  However, each and everyone of us must make a decision to allow our spirit, mind, and mouth to line up in agreement

with God.  His thoughts are not our thoughts, and His ways are not our ways. When we believe and trust in the Word of God, WE ARE UNDEFEATABLEWe must develop a “Prosperous Mentality” and maintain an expectant attitude; then we will reap a constant abundant harvest.

Nurture Your Seed

 Nurture – to make sure that the seed gets the proper nourishment it needs to grow.

It is important to nurture your seed through faith in the Word of God so it will grow.  If you don’t nurture you seed, it will not grow and eventually wither and die.

In Hebrews 10:38, it says “the just shall live by faith.”

“Just” refers to God’s children, and “faith” refers to believing, trusting, and depending on God’s Word.

It is important to confess the Word of God over your seed because there is power in the Word of God.  When you exercise faith in the Word of God, you are availing yourself to power contained in the Word of God.  The power contained in the Word of God will cause your seed to grow and flourish.

“Those who are planted in the house of God shall flourish like the palm tree”.  (Psalm 92:12)

So shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that, which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  (Isaiah 55:11)

Expect Your Harvest

Expect – to look forward to

After you have planted your seed and nurture it, you will reap a Harvest.

The Greek word for harvest is “therismos”, which means reaping. The more you nurture the seed you have sown through trusting, believing, and relying on the Word of God, the greater the harvest you will receive.  This is analogous to the process of sowing:

 Seed      =       Word of God

Ground =       Heart

Harvest =       Revelation of Truth, Understanding, and Wisdom

Once you sow the (Seed = Word of God) it will be prosperous, but the (Ground = heart) must be constantly nurtured by faith and hope in the Word of God in order to yield fruit that constantly increases (yields more and more fruit).

Royal Priesthood – Kingship / Queenship

August 15, 2020

Greek word for royal is “basileus” which means kingly; rules; foundation of power

When you become a child of God by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you become a royal (ruler that has a foundation of power  through the Trinity (Father God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit).  This “Foundation of Power” gives you the power to keep God’s Word even when your thoughts and feeling say No!

Because you submit to the will of God (the Word of God) rather than your thoughts and feelings.  That is, you allow God to take control of your life rather than you.

Foundation of power gives you the power to defeat the enemy (satan) by using the Word of God and the blood of Jesus.

“And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].” (Revelation 12:11)

Dominion comes with rulership.  Therefore, you have authority through the foundation of power to not only defeat but to take control over.  For example, suppose you are traveling in a car and a stranger ask you for a ride.  Well, you don’t know if the person has a weapon or the motive of the person, so you decide not to give the stranger a ride in your car.  Well, you may start thinking well I’m suppose to help those in need, and your conscious begins to bother you.  But, the wisdom of God kicks in and says no, I should not have given the stranger a ride because of potential danger.

You have done two things:  (1) taken control over a potentially dangerous situation – getting hurt by the stranger; (2) defeated thoughts of guilt that satan has put in your mind because you chose wisdom over foolishness in not picking up the stranger.

The Greek word for piresthood is “hierateuma” which means to perform the functions of  a priest.

Priestly duties are:  to offer a sin offering unto God for an atonement of sin for themselves and the people.

The high priest was the chief administrative officer of all priests. He was in charge of the Tabernacle and later of the Temple of Jerusalem while it stood. He alone was allowed to offer sacrifices for the sins of himself, the priests, or the people. Likewise, only he was allowed to enter the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement. Occasionally he would assist the incumbent Judge or king with “inquiring of God” concerning an appropriate course of civil or military action.

During the era of the Judges, the high priest was regarded as an associate Judge. Eli, for example, is described as having “judged” Israel for forty years, which was his term as high priest. (1 Samuel 4:18 )

The high priest also served an expiatory purpose. A man guilty of involuntary manslaughter was required to remain in a city of refuge until the high priest had died. The death of the high priest expiated the original death that the guilty man had caused.

The high priest wore a series of specialized and symbolic garments that reflected his duties and responsibilities. (Exodus 28 ) These included:

* A sleeveless purple robe.

* The ephod

* The breastplate of judgment, containing twelve gemstones each representing one of the original sons of Israel.

* The turban which covered his head.

* A small pouch in which he carried the Urim and Thummim.

When he entered the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement, he was dressed in white linen and did not wear the much more costly garments listed above.

Today, Jesus Christ is our high priest.

A Strong Woman vs. Women of Strength

November 1, 2019

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape …

but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape…

 

A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything …

but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear…

 

A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her …

but a woman of strength gives the best of her to everyone…

 

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…

but a woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be God’s blessings and capitalizes on them…

 

A strong woman walks sure footedly …

but a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls…

 

A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face …

but a woman of strength wears grace…

 

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey …

but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong…

DISPELL THE DOUBT

September 22, 2019

Many people think that success is measured by the size house they have, the amount of clothes they have and the amount of money they have in the bank.  However, this is not true.

Success is using your God-given gifts for the glory of God.  But, you first have to discover your God-given gifts.

Steps to Achieving Success are:

  1. Humble yourself (surrender your mind, body, and spirit to God).
  2. Be patient (waiting and expecting God to lead and guide you).
  3. Endure trials and tribulations.

Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience.  But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing(James 1:2-4)

  1. Seek God by using the R-S-M Method

This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it.  For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.  (Joshua 1:8)

But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness

(His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.  (Matthew 6:33)

2.  Walk in the purposes of God, constantly obeying God’s leading and direction – moving forward and moving onward toward completion.

With your gift of any amount to our ministry, I will send you a FREE book “Seeking the Face of God”, which is a collecton of Christian poetry which is sure to help you reach greater spiritual heights.

You can DONATE  – Your contribution will help WLWM continue to: 

(1)  transform the lives of people through its radio teaching ministry;
(2)  help women become victors rather than victims of domestic violence;
(3)  help distribute Encouragement Baskets to help build the self-esteem of women and help them identify their God-given purpose and walk in their purpose.
You will undoubtedly help women Move Forward and experience healing and spiritual growth, knowing that through healing and restoration “the good work God has began in them He will complete.’’

Foundation of Faith

September 8, 2019

Jesus said I am the truth, the way, and the life.

 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  (John 14:6)

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word (Christ) and the Word was God himself.  He was present originally with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him, and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.” (John 1:1-3)

 “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”  (Psalm 119:105)

God’s Word shows which path to take so you will stay on the straight and narrow road that leads to eternal life. The lamp upon your feet helps to lead and guide you where you are stepping so you can avoid the traps that the devil has set for you to walk in and destroy you.  These traps can be in the form of deception and distractions that keep you from fulfilling your God-given destiny; your God-given purpose. For example, you have a gift of creativity that is expressed through hair designing, but you attempt to draw and paint.  However, your drawing and painting is not very good. You begin to receive negative comments and become frustrated and eventually give up.  This is the result of you not using the gift(s) God gave you.

Once you start using your God-given gift(s) – teaching, encouraging, writing, singing, dancing, creative designing, etc. then you will experience joy and fulfillment.  God wants his children to be faithful.

“His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much . . .”  (Matthew 25:23)

“He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much . . .” (Luke 16:10)

God will also promote you by opening more opportunities for you to use your God-given gift(s) to help more people.

“A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.” (Proverbs 18:16)

With your gift of any amount to our ministry, I will send you a FREE book “Seeking the Face of God”, which is a collecton of Christian poetry which is sure to help you reach greater spiritual heights.

You can DONATE  – Your contribution will help WLWM continue to: 

(1)  transform the lives of people through its radio teaching ministry;
(2)  help women become victors rather than victims of domestic violence;
(3)  help distribute Encouragement Baskets to help build the self-esteem of women and help them identify their God-given purpose and walk in their purpose.
You will undoubtedly help women Move Forward and experience healing and spiritual growth, knowing that through healing and restoration “the good work God has began in them He will complete.’’

 


Humility is the Hallmark of Holiness

August 27, 2019
When you are humble, you surrender your will and way to God’s will and way (His plans and purposes for your life).
 
God’s plans and purposes are the best for you because when you agree with and align yourself to them, success is guaranteed and failure is not an option.

 


Jesus, the Friend that Sticks Closer than a Brother

August 20, 2019

“This is My commandment: that you love one another [just] as I have loved you.

No one has greater love [no one has shown stronger affection] than to lay down (give up) his own life for his friends.  You are My friends if you keep on doing the things which I command you to do.”  (John 15:12-14)

Friend – is someone who regards you so highly that they want to be there when you need them; someone who says when everyone else goes.

What kind of friend Jesus is not:

  1. Jesus is not a fair weather friend who disappears when things get tough.  In prosperity our friends know us, in our adversity we know our friends.  Jesus will never leave you or forsake you.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]  Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief, ease, refreshment, recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.”  (Matthew 11:28-29)

  1. Jesus is not an unfaithful friend who stabs you in the back to get what he wants; betrays you.  For example, Joseph’s brothers betrayed him.  Judas betrayed Jesus.  Jesus is faithful all the time.  You can count on God to be faithful.  Jesus stands up to defend you forever.  Jesus is loyal, faithful and true.
  1. A friend in “word” only – speaks the language of a friend, but they see you in trouble and won’t lift their hands.  Jesus loves you enough to sacrifice.
  1. A friend you can buy, which has no value.  You don’t have to buy Jesus’ friendship.  Jesus will always be your friend and nothing can separate your friendship.  “Nothing in my hands I bring; simply to the cross I cling.” 
  1. A friend that will flatter you.  Tell you what you want to hear.  A true friend will consider your feelings, but will tell you the truth.  Jesus does not flatter.  Jesus convicts you of wrongdoing, and sticks closer to you than a brother.  Faithful are the wounds of a friend.  Jesus will always be there for you.

Be careful how you choose your friends because they will influence you for good or for bad.  Some friends will be there for portions of your life.  Some friends will always be there for you – JESUS.

I pray that you will:

  • Thank God for your friends.
  • Choose Jesus to be your friend and pray that He will give you the grace to be His friend.
  • This message will take root in your heart and you will apply it in your life.
