Beloved I wish above all things that ye mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth.
One of God's wish for you is to prosper financially. Prosperity is not just in the spiritual and mental sense but also in the realm of finances. Not many believers have taken advantage of this aspect of prosperity. Besides prospering mentally, physically and socially, a believer has a God given right to succeed financially as an entrepreneur. God's best for you does not include going from job to job, or living from paycheck to paycheck. While we thank God for jobs and wages but God's best for you is not to be working for someone else for the rest of your life. Remember the old saying, 'Profits are better than wages.'
Too many believers are working for money when it should be the other way around. Money is your servant and should be working for you. Owning businesses and corporations is a part of your destiny as a believer specially if you want to be an endtime financier of the Gospel to your nation and the nations. I am concerned today that many believers are just waiting for a handout from the world to be financially blessed.
Profits are better than wages
As much as I believe in the transfer of the wealth of the wicked to the Just, that does not mean I have to wait for a handout but it must be a takeover. Think of the worldwide influence or impact you will make once you start to take over the major industries of the world-telecommunications, real estate, computer technology, publishing and others. Think about the amplificaton of your voice in the world. The Bible declares that the wisdom of the poor man is despised. Notice the poor man has wisdom but because he is broke he has no voice. Christians need to wake up. In developing an entrepreneurial spirit God is strategically placing believers in places of authority for a global shifting of power from the world's hands and into the hands of the church. God's purpose is to promote you and others like you to a position where you can directly affect the lives of millions. The purpose is for soulwinning. Christians have not understood the business apect of Jesus Christ. We only think of Jesus as the Savior of the world which is absolutely right but at the same time the Gospel also reveal Jesus as a sharp chief executive officer. In fact, He owned a successful carpentry business while on earth as stated in the Gospel of Mark.
asIs not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
Jesus had an excellent ability to organize crusades and minister the gospel to multitudes of people. He made a tremendous impact on the world in the short span of three years. Talk about a true world changer! Jesus was indeed a world changer! The problem the people in Jesus' time had was that they saw him as a business man and not as the Messiah. Today our problem we see him only as the Messiah and not as an entrepreneur. Yet he is both. In fact Jesus is a real estate owner. He owns the earth! This is why you need to have faith to be an entrepreneur! Look out for the next article on this subject.
