3 beliefs that are wrong about wealth

THESE three wrong beliefs about wealth can easily become invisible barriers to your prosperity.


God’s promises of prosperity were not only given to Abraham, they are also for you.


If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed. The promises to Abraham, through Jesus Christ, are yours.


Galatians 3:16.The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say ‘unto seeds’ meaning many people, but to your seed meaning one person, who is Christ.”


God promised Abraham that he would make him prosperous and as he prospered, his cousin Lot, also became wealthy.


Lot benefitted from the anointing of wealth on his uncle.


When you are prosperous all people associated with you become wealthy.


One of the reasons Jesus was crucified was to make us rich.


2 Corinthians 8:9  For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.


2 Peter 1:3, “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.


If a child does not know they are a heir to the inheritance they live in poverty.


Ability to create wealth


God has given us the ability to create wealth.


But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today. Deuteronomy 8:18.


He swore a covenant with our forefathers, so when we live in poverty, the covenant God made with Abraham is not being fulfilled in us.


Genesis 12: 2, “I will make into a great nation, and I will bless you: I will make your name great and you will be a blessing.”


Do you feel like a child of Abraham, a seed of Abraham?

Wrong beliefs about wealth


These 3 beliefs that are wrong about wealth can become invisible barriers on your road to prosperity;


  1. God can make me poor to teach me something


This is a misplaced belief and can keep you bound in poverty.


What parent can allow his or her child to be poor to teach them something?


If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him. Mathew 7:11.


What a wicked father would teach me through suffering, have me suffer to teach me something!


Our Father is generous and wants the best in life for us. He is the owner of all silver and gold.


  1. When am rich it gives the wrong impression


Another false belief about wealth that can keep people enslaved by the spirit of poverty is that, “people will think that I have stolen…”


Remember God will not give you what you do not value!


If you don’t value prosperity God will not give it to you.


A person can be extremely rich, be blameless and still fear God like Job.


Job1:1.  In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.


The Bible goes on to say, Job “was the greatest man among all the people of the East.”


God can bless the works of our hands that we are extremely rich.


Abraham also was wealthy, feared God and shunned evil.


  1. Jesus was poor as an example




He became poor so we may become rich!


Jesus has called us by His own glory and goodness. When he said: It is finished, he already made us rich.


It comes through our knowledge of Him.


For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9.


Why God gives us wealth


We are not going to leave this earth with the wealth, so why does God give us wealth?


The reason why God gives us wealth is so that we may build His church.


Exodus 12:35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing.”


It is the reason why God was giving the Israelites silver and gold, and expensive clothing during the 40 years they were going to be in the wilderness.


“Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.” Exodus 25:8.


God was giving them wealth to build His church and He took care of their personal needs, their shoes did not wear out, but the wealth was for building the church.


Exodus 29 :5,Yet the LORD says, “During the forty years that I led you through the wilderness, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet.


When the time came for building the tabernacle where people would gather to worship God, they gave willingly out of abundance.


And everyone who was willing and whose heart moved them came and brought an offering to the Lord for the work on the tent of meeting, for all its service, and for the sacred garments.” Exodus 35:21.


Willingness of my heart


For what you have, give.


God gave the Israelites to give back.


The Father sees the willingness of my heart. “If you are willing give an offering,” God says. He is asking you to give so that He may bless you.


A farmer who knows he is going to get a harvest goes to the farm and sows with joy.


He or she does not plant grumbling.


Exodus 36:5, and said to Moses, “The people are bringing more than enough for doing the work the LORD commanded to be done.”


People should be willing to give until they are told it is enough!


Wealth came from God


The Israelites gave like this because they understood their wealth came from God, it did not belong to them.


That is the mind set we need to have if we are going to live prosperously.


Most of the time we think we are doing God a favour when we give.


“Its my money,” we say, not realising that if He took away the breadth, we will not b in a position to make wealth.


The Israelites were not in need because they were generous with God, their “clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on their feet!”


God wants us to live a supernatural life!
