Prosperity in Perspective 5
Money Comes, Part Two
by Pastor John Hamel
In part one of our study, “Understanding Why
Money Comes,” we saw two of the three primary reasons why Jesus came and
why money comes to obedient Believers.
Jesus came to seek and save
the lost. (Luke 19:10) Money comes to invest heavily in seeking
and saving the lost people of the world.
Jesus came to destroy the
works of Satan. (1John 3:8) Money comes to invest heavily into
destroying the works of Satan in the lives of the world’s population.
Our Father wills that we put our money, tithes and offerings, where people
are being set free from demons, lusts, sickness, habits and sins and taught
about their authority in Christ.
In this, part two of our study,
“Understanding Why Money Comes,” we will see the third reason why Jesus
came into the Earth and why money comes into the hands of obedient Believers.
Christ Came to Prosper His Family Abundantly
“The thief cometh
not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they
might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
These are the words of the God-Man, Jesus
Christ. Jesus always said what He meant, and meant what He
said. Jesus said that Satan, the thief, came to steal from the people
of the world, to kill and to destroy them. Jesus said that He,
Himself, came that people might enjoy life and enjoy it abundantly.
Let’s get one thing straight. Jesus is the Blesser.
Satan is the damner.
God is our Solution. Satan is our
God sent Jesus to get His children out
of debt, poverty, stress and anger. That is all poverty will do for
anyone, make him or her angry. Poverty is a terrarium where trouble
and anger thrive like thistles and thorns. Nothing good ever comes of
poverty. Nothing. Sure, it can bring a degree of humility to
the lives of some, but it does so destructively. God does not use
poverty to humble anyone.
Almighty God instructs His children to humble themselves, as a conscious act
of their own free will. If they will do so, He promises to exalt
them. (1Peter 5:6) God has never asked anyone to take a vow of
poverty. That would be to limit Himself through that person. It
is a fact that you will reach far more people with $4 million than you will
with $4. Poverty is a lie from Hell. Everything about it reeks
of stoppage and destruction.
Debt and poverty will turn a young man into
an old man and kill him prematurely. They are health stealers and
cripplers. They ruin marriages. They run children away from
Jesus and not to Him. I am sorry to say that God has taken a bum rap
for all the poverty that is in the Earth when Jesus said that His Father
was not guilty of any of it. He said, “Satan is the damner. God is the Blesser.”
Anyone who gets their priorities straight,
keeping in mind that money comes to seek and save the lost first, to
destroy the works of the devil second, and to give them abundance of life
third, is well on their way to a parade of financial miracles. God is the
wealthiest, most successful individual in existence. Through Christ
Jesus we have been made His sons and daughters. But not sons and
daughters alone. We are His heirs.
“But when the fullness of the time was
come, God sent forth his son, made of a woman, made under the law, To
redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the ADOPTION OF
SONS. And because YE ARE SONS, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his
son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore THOU ART NO
MORE A SERVANT BUT A SON, AND IF A SON, THEN AN HEIR OF GOD THROUGH
CHRIST.” (Galatians 4:4-7)
The Bible clearly reveals that through
Christ we become God’s children and heirs. That is better than having
a billionaire as your Father. Everything that every billionaire
possesses is on loan to him or her from Almighty God, your Father. He
alone owns all the silver and gold in the Earth.
“The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Haggai 2:8)
Our Heavenly Father wants to share His
wealth with us, but only once we get our priorities straight. Did we
not see at the beginning of this study that the Lord “…hath pleasure in the
prosperity of his servant”? (Psalm 35:27) Well, if He wants His
servants to prosper, how much more does He want His sons and daughters to
prosper? We are more than servants. We are His children.
Fathers do more, much more, for their children than they do for their
We are children of God and we are heirs of
God through Christ. However, we are not only heirs of God, we are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ.
“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God,
and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may
be also glorified together.” (Romans 8:17)
I will have something to say about the
suffering part at the end of this lesson. Right now I want to say a
word about “joint-heirs with Jesus.” Think about it. Everything
God owns, Jesus owns. Everything Jesus owns, His brothers and sisters
own. That is what a joint-heir is. A joint-heir is a
“participant in common.” This means that what Jesus owns is not half
His and half ours. It means that we all participate in the common
wealth. It means that what Jesus owns is all His and all ours.
Get a hold of that by meditating on it a little bit and it will change your
It is so obvious from these verses of
Scripture that God’s will is prosperity and not poverty. It is
difficult to see how anyone could ever believe that God would want him or
her to take a vow of poverty or go without for any
Recall that I told you at the beginning of
this prosperity series how I bowed my head at my desk and asked the Lord,
“Lord, why do so many people reject the prosperity
principles of Your Word?” I told you then, before I could even finish
my question, the Lord’s answer literally shot up out of my spirit. He
replied, “Ignorance.” Ignorance does not mean “to be stupid.”
Ignorance means “to lack knowledge and to be unaware.”
You are being equipped with knowledge in
this Biblical Prosperity in Perspective series. Religious ideas and
wrong traditional assumptions about God’s will and Biblical prosperity are
being torn down and destroyed. This is what God wills for you.
He wants you to believe His Word concerning prosperity, not wrong religious
and traditional thinking. He wants you to take His Word and tear down
all wrong thinking that has been imposed upon you. This can only be
done through exposure to His Word, such as you are experiencing in these
“Casting down imaginations, and every high
thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge
of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of
Christ;” (2Corinthians 10:5)
You have a right and an obligation to cast
down wrong teaching concerning Biblical prosperity. God commands you
to cast down all wrong, poverty-based teaching that has exalted itself
against the knowledge of His Word. God commands you to bring every
thought captive to the obedience of Christ, your Joint-Heir and big
You also have a right and an obligation to command that money come to you to seek and
save the lost, to destroy the works of the devil and to cause you
personally to prosper. You have a right and an obligation to commission the Angels of God to go forth
and fix your finances, causing money to come to you.
“Bless the Lord, ye his angels,
that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto
the voice of his word.” (Psalm 103:20)
As a Believer, you must give voice to the
Word of God in the Earth, telling the Angels of God, respectfully, to “Go
and cause prosperity to come. In Jesus’ Name.” They will obey,
as long as you are living right.
It is God’s will for all of His children to
prosper. However, all of His children are not prospering because they
are not meeting the conditions. They do not see the importance of
meeting the conditions to which Jesus referred in the Great Commission.
Meet the conditions. Make a decision to use
your prosperity to seek and save the lost first and to destroy the works of
Last but not least, make up your mind to allow God to
give you a life of abundance. If you will do so, Biblical prosperity
will literally hunt you down.
I told you earlier that I would have a word
on suffering with Christ at the end of this lesson.
There is a right
way and a wrong way to suffer with Christ.
You will be greatly
blessed to read both “Suffering & the Will of God 1.
The Wrong Way to Suffer” and “Suffering & the Will of God 2. The Right Way to Suffer.”
There you will find that although it may be God’s will for you to suffer
with Christ through persecution, it is never His will for you to suffer
with Christ in poverty.
In our next lesson we will see how to start the
Biblical prosperity process.
Be blessed … John
