Rhapsody of Realities Teevo,


(God’s Prosperity Is Yours)

TO THE BIBLE 2 Corinthians 8:9 TLB,

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;

“You know how full of love and kindness our Lord Jesus was:
though he was so very rich, yet to help you he became so very poor, so that by
being poor he could make you rich.”


After you’re born again, poverty becomes completely
unacceptable in your life. I know there’re people who believe Christians ought
to be poor, but that’s due to their lack of understanding of the Scriptures.
Poverty is not the absence of money, or other required necessities of life;
it’s actually the disabling of a man’s mental prowess. It’s that state where a
person’s mind shuts down, and that person believes that he or she can’t do
anything to change his state. But that’s not the case with the one who’s born
again and lives by the Word; it’s impossible for such a person to walk in
penury. The Christian is an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ.

All the wealth in this world belongs to you if you’re born
again. Once you accept this truth in your spirit, and allow it dominate your
thinking, it’ll give you a new mindset. It’ll be impossible for you to walk in
lack. The Bible says Jesus became poor so that we, through His poverty, might
become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9). He took upon Himself, not only the sins of the
world, but also the effects of sin, one of which is poverty. This is the reason
every Christian must reject poverty.

Nevertheless, poverty by choice, or deprivation by
persecution is acceptable. A Christian may walk poor, and live poor because of
ignorance, but he’s not poor, for he actually has an inheritance in Christ. 1
Corinthians 3:21 says, “…all things are yours.” Therefore, refuse and reject
the down life; don’t live as a victim.

2 Peter 1:2-3; Psalm 23:1-2


Dear Father, you’re gracious and kind. I thank you for
making me a joint-heir with Christ; the world belongs to me. All things are
mine, and nothing good is withheld from me. I dwell in the realm of superabundance,
where I’m graciously supplied with every good thing. My life is a manifestation
of your love and grace; thank you, Lord, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
