Are you aware that not all believers really believe? Are you a believer – a “true” believer?
Let’s start with what a believer is. Basically, a believer is someone who has received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their life and believes the whole Word of God and acts that way.
So, you say, of course that’s me! Hopefully it is. But the major of born-again Christians don’t really believe God’s Word as the final authority. Yes, they believe in salvation but when I comes to healing or prosperity, they waver and doubt God’s Word.
The Word says that Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday, and forever. And since Jesus is the Word of God, that means His Word is the same today, yesterday, and forever!
If healing was here when Jesus walked the earth, then healing is still for us. If it was ever God’s will to heal – and it was from the beginning – then it’s still God’s will to heal today.
So many Christians have been fed a bucket of lies that healing has passed away. What an indictment against our gracious Father! Oh, the lies that have been perpetuated against Him!
And as it is with healing, so it is with prosperity. It has always been God’s will for His people to prosper and succeed in every area of their lives. The scripture is replete with prosperity for us.
Think about it. What parent wants their children to live in failure, defeat, and poverty all their lives? No good parent would want that. How much more does God want His children to prosper and succeed! Are earthly parents better than God? Of course not!
Sad to say, the devil has convinced so many Christians that poverty is the way to humility but that just isn’t so. Poverty is a curse and a stench in the nostrils of God!
How can you be a blessing and help others if you’re in poverty and barely getting along? Even common sense tells you that it just doesn’t work that way.
So, what we need to do as “true” believers, is to BELIEVE that what God said in His word is the truth that we must live by and see the victory that God has provided for us in every area of our lives!
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
3 John 1:2 (KJV) 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
