God is good. Itâ€™s His nature to be good. Everything in the Bible is true. Very true. When you truly believe and accept what God said, you start seeing the realities of it in your life. Â Then your life becomes like the book itself. Â You can literally read the word in your life. Â You see the Word of God playing out in your life and that is the joy of Christianity.
Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus is Godâ€™s Word manifested to us. He is the extraordinary gift of God to the world. Jesus was the totality of the character of Godâ€™s Word. Â He was the expression of Godâ€™s opinion, thoughts, idea, words. He was everything that God ever wanted.
Your life today is the expression of your thoughts, idea, words. Â It is the revelation of everything about your thoughts, Â words, opinion. Thoughts are tangible elements. Words are also tangible. Words are spiritual elements, they donâ€™t go away. When God looks at you, He doesnâ€™t see your physical body. What then does He see when He looks at you? He sees your spiritual character. Remember His words to Samuel, He said I have rejected him. Man looks at the outward but God looks at the inward.

This is finance Convention, right? What does it mean. It means that we are convening about the acquisition and use of wealth. Â Thatâ€™s what itâ€™s about. When people come for a healing service and participate as they should, they receive healing and those that are not sick receives the gift of healing. Same with training meeting. There is always an impartation. For every meeting, there is a purpose.
When someone comes to a man of God to receive the Holy Spirit, the man of God usually lays his hand on that man. Another who comes with financial challenge, the man of God lays the same hand on that individual and God grants financial blessing to that one. God understands purpose. He knows why we are here. Godâ€™s blessing is available for the purpose for which we are here.
In the next few days, there will be a rain of blessings. Â In the next few months you are going to wonder what has been happening.
1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
This man Abraham was formally called Abram. This was a blessing on its own. Itâ€™s like being called Father by those who you didnâ€™t give birth to physically. But now, God said, a father of many nation have I made you. He was made a father of nations even before now. This tells Godâ€™s plan and purpose for this man. How many die without fulfilling their purpose. God had to change this manâ€™s name to bring him into his purpose. Your name matters. Itâ€™s a confession. Whether itâ€™s your first-name or your last-name. It matters a lot. If your name means something negative, then change it. I wonder why people still call their kids Simon and even Jacob. The same name God changed.
Your circumstances should not describe or determine your life.
In verse 6, the latter part said that, â€œâ€¦and kings shall come out of theeâ€ Some translations said â€œâ€¦ and some kings shall come out of theeâ€ referring to King David, Â and Solomon etc. This is because they couldnâ€™t comprehend Godâ€™s idea. He actually wanted everyone Kings.
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christâ€™s, then are ye Abrahamâ€™s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
When God said seed in the old testament, He was actually referring to Jesus. We are the heirs of the promises that was made to Abraham. This means it has become impossible for me to be poor because prosperity is my birthright. It doesnâ€™t matter the nation or economy I found myself in. If you donâ€™t want anything successful, donâ€™t get me involved in it.
For if by one manâ€™s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
The purpose of Jesus coming to save us is the lesser truth.
Thatâ€™s not the man purpose. That was a means to
Why then did Jesus come?
He came to bring us into fellowship with God. Fellowship means a oneness, a union with God.
The name of Jesus is named on everything. Everything was created in His name. Now we have come into oneness with this Jesus and His Father. Now we are joint heir with God. That means we have access to everything. Now, how can you know this thing and still be poor? Itâ€™s either you donâ€™t understand it or God is telling a lie. And God cannot lie.
Why then havenâ€™t you been enjoying all these? First knowledge has to come to you. Fear comes true knowledge, faith also comes through knowledge. God wants us to be full of faith through His Word. He wants us to respond with faith at all times.
Refuse to let any nation make decisions for you. When making decisions, donâ€™t look at those in the helm of affair now. Look at the future. There was a time a Naira was equal to two British Pound. Now itâ€™s no longer the same. But we survived. Why are you afraid? This is just pure politics. All the gold, oil, diamond and all are in Africa. Why are we still borrowing? Think about it.
Some people are financially ignorant. During these few days you will discover how to become an employer. Do you know what any two of us can do if we come together? How many female here use salon? Almost everyone. There are not enough salon. You donâ€™t need huge amount to make wealth. Every business has profit. Itâ€™s your ability to manage the profit that you make that matters.
Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.
Then I said, â€œBut what can we expect from the poor? They are ignorant. They donâ€™t know the ways of the Lord. They donâ€™t understand Godâ€™s laws.
This is something about poor people. They know not the way of the Lord. When you received Jesus into your life, you received an inheritance. It doesnâ€™t matter whether you knew you or not. It is legally impossible for a Christian to be poor. A Christian can ONLY be ignorant of his riches.
1 Cor 1 :9
1 John 1:3
2 Corinthians 8:9
This is not spiritual, because Jesus never become poor
Job 36:11 NLT
Prosperity is a blessing.
We are unlimited and unstoppable.
Sharpen the blade.
I canâ€™t imagine a Christian still questioning the tithe. The tithe is not of the law. Circumcision means to cut, your tithe is Godâ€™s cut. Donâ€™t spend it. If you canâ€™t give 200 as tithe for 2000 how will you give 2M as tithe for 200M. He that us
In all works there is profit, Â but mere talk produces only poverty.
Confessors without corresponding actions leads to poverty.
You need to be able to hear from God. If you donâ€™t hear from God, speak in tongues. If after day one, nothing proceed to day two, if after 5 days, nothing. Add fasting. If even after fasting no voice, then go for â€˜seclusionâ€™ whatâ€™s that? That means separating yourself from people. Itâ€™s now you and God. No more human communication and all phones are put off.
This means you have left asking to seeking and from seeking to knocking. Itâ€™s not possible for you not to hear from God after this.
When you give to God, donâ€™t give like a poor man, because you are not poor. Let your offering always make a statement. Now take your offering.
Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the Lord; I will sing praise to the Lord God of Israel.
