Understanding is the bedrock on which everything in life, particularly God’s kingdom work Psa. 119:144; Pro. 21:16. We have great inheritance in the kingdom, things that Christ by His death and resurrection has obtained for the believer to enjoy Acts 20:32. One of these heritages is financial fortune Rev. 5:12; 2Cor. 8:9. Every heritage in redemption requires the foundation the believer must have in order to enjoy it, financial fortune inclusive Psa. 11:3; 1Cor. 3:9-10. This foundation is contained in God’s word, which makes God’s word the sure foundation for the believer Mat. 7:24-25; Pro. 24:3-5.
The Truth about the Covenant of Financial Fortune.
Biblical prophecies reveal that the last days shall witness earth-shaking move of God, which shall lead multitude to salvation Hag. 2:3-9; Mic. 4:1-3.This divine agenda requires heavy financial resources for its delivery Zch. 1:17; Hag. 2:3-9. Therefore, God will put the finance for it in the hand of the believer; they are to make it available for God’s end-time purpose. For example, God’s agenda was to build a sanctuary in the wilderness; He blessed the Israelite with the resources and demanded of them to bring it when it was time to build Exo. 3:21-22; 25:1-3,8.
Demands for Guaranteed Returns on our Seeds Sown.
Financial fortune operates on the covenant of seedtime and harvest Gen. 8:22. But for our seed to produce harvest there are scriptural demands to put in place.
When we give with the mentality of donation, we have lost the harvest. Our seed is a spiritual transaction that answers in heaven and triggers supernatural order of blessings upon our lives Gen. 8:20-22; 22:15-22; 1Kgs. 3:3-13. When the seed leaves our hand, it crosses two (2) realms; first the physical from our hand to the receiver, and second is the spiritual from the natural into the supernatural or heaven’s realm. When our seed hits heaven’s table, it invokes the return of heaven’s blessing Mal. 3:10.
The seed that will produce harvest must be sown from the heart that is willing 2Cor. 8:12; Exo. 35:4,16,22. Remember, God is interested first in the heart, and then the act of the believer, to determine what will be the outcome of each believer 1Sam. 16:7.
Our seed must be gotten in righteous ways, for it to be acceptable to God when we sow it Heb. 12:28; Mal. 3:3-4. It is only acceptable seed that guarantee harvest in return. For instance, don’t defraud and pay tithe, expecting to have the heaven open and blessings poured out.
In conclusion, a number of believers and people in church are struggling particularly in finance, not because they don’t give but because they lack the foundation required for prosperity.And without the foundation, everything the believer does is a waste Psa. 11:3. For instance, a born again business man probably dealing in building materials who will always tell lies to help his sale, might be tithing and giving sacrificially, but still struggling financially. This is because of lack of foundation.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer loudly with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me and on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you, Jesus, for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.”
