EXCERPT OF PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE’S MESSAGE AT THE JULY HOLY GHOST SERVICE
AND PRAYER POINTS
MESSAGE: GOD OF PROSPERITY.
TEXT: JOB 36:11-12
11 If they obey and serve [him], they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. 12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge
Prosperity is not limited to wealth alone, it includes five things:
Prosperity includes wealth:
Money makes you the head: Prov 22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower [is] servant to the lender.
Deut. 28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath;
Money is a defence: Eccl. 7:11 For wisdom [is] a defence, [and] money [is] a defence: but the excellency of knowledge [is, that] wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
Money help you to build HIS kingdom: Some wants to do mighty things for God, what is holding us back his money.
17 Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad;
Prosperity includes health:
Eccl. 6:2 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this [is] vanity, and it [is] an evil disease.
Eccl: 5:19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this [is] the gift of God.
Prosperity includes peace of mind:
Wealth is meaningless to someone who live in fear. Wealth is meaningless to someone who cannot sleep. Wealth is meaningless to someone who does not have rest.
1John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
2Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
If you have wealth and you don’t have peace of mind, you are a poor man. John4:27, Philippians 4:7
Prosperity includes joy:
Wealth is meaningless to someone who is drowning in sorrow. Wealth has no meaning someone who has no joy.
Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken
Prosperity includes hope:
Eccl 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
Col. 1:27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
WHAT GOD WANTS FROM YOU TO GET ALL ROUND PROSPERITY
Obey HIM and serve HIM: Job 36:11-12
Wealth: Deut.28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
Health: Exodus 15: 26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.
Peace: Isaiah 48:18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea.
Joy: Psalm 32:11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all [ye that are] upright in heart.
Hope: John:14-15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Father,everything I need to serve you, give me abundantly
Father, in the mighty name of Jesus give me divine health
Father don’t take away your peace from me
Father, for the rest of my life don’t let me know sorrow
Father, my hope is in you; let me finish well.
