Introduction: Last week our study was based on the fact that “Poverty does not produce Piety”. We looked at 2 Myths - (1. God doesn’t want us to be rich & 2. Poverty makes us holy). We concluded on the understanding that God wants us to prosper and not to be in lack or need and also that poverty can lead to sin and all manner of atrocities. We need to promote God’s Kingdom which can only be propagated through prosperity.


Think like God – Read His Word.

A lot of times, our thinking is wrong. It’s not in line with the Bible. And if our thinking is wrong, then our believing is going to be wrong. And if our believing is wrong, then our talking is going to be wrong.

It is important to get all three (your thinking, your believing, and your speaking) Synchronized with the Word of God.

This idea that God wants his children poor, having no material things is totally unscriptural. The Bible has a great deal to say about money – about receiving it to meet personal needs and giving it to support the work of God and to bless others.


Examples of God’s servants that were wealthy

  1. ABRAM: The Bible says, “And Abram was VERY rich in cattle, in silver and in gold” (Gen 13:2).
  2. KING SOLOMON: (1 Kings 10:6-10) tells of the queen of Sheba coming to visit King Solomon to see if he was as wise and great as she had heard.
  3. JOB:He had seven sons and three daughters. He was also very wealthy—seven thousand head of sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred teams of oxen, five hundred donkeys, and a huge staff of servants—the most influential man in all the East!” (Job 1:2-3)
    During the trials and suffering he endured, Job lost his great wealth. But God restored Job’s riches! The Bible says, “God blessed Job’s later life even more than his earlier life. He ended up with fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand teams of oxen, and one thousand donkeys.” (Job 42:12)


It is important to realize that God is not against wealth and prosperity. But He is against people being covetous.


How does studying his Word help?

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning. Words of the Bible are full of life! These precious Words are a gift from God the Father to ALL who take hold of them.

The Words of God promise salvation, eternal life, righteousness, redemption, deliverance, protection, prosperity, healing and wholeness of spirit, soul and body.

In Hosea 4:6 God says that “My people perish for lack of knowledge.”

In order for you and I to take hold of the blessings of God and know His will for us, we need to read His instruction manual, called the Bible. In the Bible you will find Words that give you answers in ALL areas of your life.

“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified” (Acts 20.32).

ALL the answers concerning your life are covered in the Bible. You can be built up, you can receive your rightful inheritance as a son/daughter of God when you know what God promises are through His Words in the Bible. You can take on the very nature of God and Jesus by living by the Words of the Bible!

God’s Words are not hard to keep. Jesus says that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. When you act on God’s Words, your life will be full of peace and free from worry; full of joy and not sadness, health not sickness, deliverance not depression, financial blessings not wondering where you’ll find the money to pay your bills!

You may pride yourself on reciting from memory many verses of the Bible. God says that won’t get you anywhere, even though you may look good to others. You have to do what it says!



God’s Words are so important, that He doesn’t want anyone tampering with them and changing them around to say anything else. His Promises are “Yea and Amen.”

As you read the Bible, thank God for His Word. Take what it says personally, and act on it and you will begin to think naturally in line with God’s word, as He fulfils His Word through you.
