He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. –1 John 3:8
The word that stands out in this scripture is “purpose.” The first purpose is to destroy the works of the devil; and one of the main works of the devil is LACK. There is a need in the Body of Christ for wealthy people to destroy the work of the devil. There is a need for wealthy Christians to evangelize, cast out devils, and lay hands on the sick. But, what will it take to get where the sick people are? What will it take for the Body of Christ to evangelize the world? MONEY. WEALTH. ABUNDANCE.
How can you, as a believer, meet the needs of others while your needs aren’t met?
A lot of power is not available in the Body of Christ because too much prayer is placed on needs. We spend too much time praying about necessities. If we could shift our prayer power to be able to focus strictly on what God wants us to do, without having to even worry about our own needs, how much more powerful would the Body of Christ be? How much more effective would we be in destroying the works of the devil?
Don’t ever just think I teach about money just to be teaching about money. You must understand the true purpose of you being wealthy. When God calls on you to fulfill His plans, the last thing that should be on your mind should be the resources on how to carry that plan out. Remember, you going to your wealthy place is not just God’s responsibility (He has already done His part), it is based on your cooperation and obedience.
Once you have a revelation about the purpose of wealth, it will be much easier for you to receive the wealth that God is trying to transfer to you.
