Prosperity testing: God’s accounts multiply. Pastor John Farley.

Wednesday, December 13, 2006

Suffering for blessing is one of your secondary assets.
Momentum testing is part of suffering for blessing.
The prosperity test is part of momentum testing.

Passing this test means that the mature believer receives God’s greatest prosperity, which includes greater blessings in time and even greater blessings in eternity.

God has certain laws and principles that He tells us we must follow in order to receive His highest and best in our lives.

LUK 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they {blessings} will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

There is the economy of the world, and the economy of heaven. We are not of this world – we have a heavenly citizenship.

PHI 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;

The world system for prosperity is totally opposite to God’s laws for prosperity.

Close observation of people who have more money than they can spend shows they don’t find any lasting satisfaction from their wealth.

True satisfaction can only be found in a relationship with the Lord, not in any worldly possessions.

Everyone who prospers by methods other than God’s laws for prosperity sooner or later will find that this prosperity has become a curse.

Millions of Christians have never really had to trust God for their finances.

The more we hoard and store up, the more we show our trust in what we have stored up instead of trusting in God.

Hoarding is caused by fear and pre-occupation with self, which is opposed to the instructions in God’s word which teach us to put God first, others second and ourselves last.

In the cosmic economy, you start with nothing, and work and save, work and save, to make that account grow.

In the heavenly economy, you start with everything, and learn to trust and give, trust and give, to gain access to everything.

The cosmic economy provides lots of spokespeople in your life.
The heavenly economy provides one spokesperson in your life.

In the cosmic economy, the most valued things cost the most money. In the heavenly economy, the most valuable things come with no price tag, because they have already been paid for!

The bank in the cosmic economy keeps a record of what you keep.

The bank in the heavenly economy keeps a record of what you give away!

Phil 4:17 Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.

God is not satisfied until He has returned 30, 60 , 100 fold!

Mat13:23 “And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.”
