There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; – Luke 16:19-22
The rich man in this verse can represent the world and sadly to say, the beggar can be a representation of the church: broke, desiring crumbs from off the rich man’s table. That’s why one went to Abraham and the other went to hell.
The church has had a beggarly mentality because they haven’t trained their souls to be prosperous. Remember 3 John 1:2 tells you that you will prosper and be in health as your soul prospers.
The truth is: every Christian that is broke has a soul problem that is blocking their money. If you’re behind in your bills, you have a soul problem. If you never know how you are going to make it, you have a soul problem. Why? Because God said you should be ruling in the midst of your enemies, above and not beneath, the lender and not the borrower. I can go on and on!
No condemnation, just truth. Let me show you how to have a prosperous soul:
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. – Joshua 1:8
A prosperous soul works according to Joshua 1:8. How have you been trying to make your way prosperous? By two jobs? By hustling? You can only make your way prosperous by meditating on God’s Word so He can show you revelation and show you what you need to do. You, in partnership, with God is the only way this can happen.
If your soul is prosperous, you will get your money and once it starts coming, it will keep on coming because you’ll know how to receive it and not reject it!
