Devo Prosperity Part 10
Revelation 4:10-11 (KJV)
10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
We are going to take a little shift here. Be patient with me. Can you imagine Christ placing a crown on your head for all you have done on earth, and because you are heir to the throne? Hard to believe, but that day will come. It will be at that moment we will truly understand grace. I believe we will be saying wait Lord, you gave me life and breath, you gave me food and seed, you took my sin and shame, you gave me joy and peace, and so much more and now you King of Kings and Lord of Lords place this crown on my head. I think not. Then we will cast the crown at his feet saying to you be the glory, honor and praise. All that I am and all that I have done was you and you alone. This is your crown not mine. We will fall and worship and try to comprehend what just took place and who He is. Such love such wondrous love. What I am that you notice me. How could I ever doubted you? How could I ever expected you to do more? And now you crown me. Lord I am truly sorry for all the sin in my life. I love you, but you loved me first. My God. My Lord. My creator. Forever are you to be praised!

Hebrews 3:16-19 (NIV)
16 Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt? 17 And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
How does man fall out of the provision of God. Simply rebellion. God likens it to idolatry and witchcraft. Rebellion is the sin of divination. It is man playing God. Cain choose to live out of the presence of God. That is what rebellion gets you. No rest. The Israelites were living in God’s camp, but never enjoyed God’s rest. Christians live in God’s kingdom, but most never come into His rest. His rest is knowing no matter what comes our way he will take care of it. We are not moved by circumstance, but our faith in Him moves the mountain or circumstance.

Devo Prosperity Part 8
Genesis 1:29-31 (NIV)
29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
Let’s start at the beginning. God gave man everything man needed or should want. Now in the beginning God gave us everything. We didn’t have to want for anything. This is God’s character. He gives and wants us to do the same. With God there is abundance. We did not have to work for anything. His grace was sufficient. What went wrong? Man wanted to be God. Man sinned and lack came into our lives. We had to work for everything. We were under a curse. Now notice this was the sixth day that God gave man everything. God rested on the seventh. We never entered that rest. You can have everything and have no rest. You can gain the whole world and yet lose your soul. We need to enter the rest of God. I know many Spirit filled Christians who have not entered that rest. Can this be? Let’s see together.

Matthew 20:25-30 (NIV)
25 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
29 As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. 30 Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
James 1:9-12 (NIV)
9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. 11 For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.
12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
Jesus didn’t come to be serve, but to serve us. He is our example. Now if anyone should have been served of course it would have been Christ and yet He gave up all for us and then was exalted to the right hand of God. Keep in mind He was there before He came to earth, but returned there as a man so you and I could be heirs with Him. A man must lose his life to find it. Can you be trusted with true riches? I think this was no accident that these blind men were here. Jesus asked what do you want and they said we want to see. He healed them. What do you want? Do want to see or be blinded by the deceitfulness of this world’s wealth? Paul, Samson, and others could not see till they were blind. What position do you want? Jesus came in a manger, but Caesar came to a throne. Who has eternal things and who is withered? Be careful what you ask for you may get it? I am not saying God wants us poor. I am saying God wants us to prosper and be in good health. He gives good gifts. He gives them when we are ready.

Devo Prosperity Part 6
Matthew 19:25-30 (NIV)
25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”
26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
27 Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?”
28 Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.
There are principles for gaining wealth that will work to do just that. What is your motive? Jesus says you will gain a hundred fold return in this life. Is that what your want or do you want to be with Him in glory? What is your motive? Are you after treasures on earth or heaven? This is about God’s prosperity not worldly wealth. I will show you principles to be out of debt, but I will also show you true riches. Which would you want He who created all things or a few things to call your own for a while?
