YOU MUST BE A GIVER IF YOU WANT TO PROSPER IN HARD TIMES.
IF YOU COPY ALL THE NOTES ON MY TEACHING AND YOU DON’T PAY TITHE, IT IS USELESS
WHEN YOU APPLY YOURSELF TO THE PRINCIPLES OF FINANCIAL PROSPERITY, YOU WILL NEVER BE FINANCIALLY HELPLESS.
UNTIL YOU BELIEVE GOD’S WORD YOU CAN NEVER PROSPER IN HARD TIMES.
FAITH, PRAYERS AND FASTING ARE NO SUBSTITUTE TO THE GIVING GRACE.
IT IS PRACTICAL OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S WORD THAT BRINGS ABUNDANCE.
WITHOUT OBEDIENCE THERE WILL BE NO PROSPERITY. POWER TO GET WEALTH ANSWERS TO OBEDIENCE.
THE ANCHOR OF THE COVENANT OF PROSPERITY IS GIVING.

The Message today is: PROSPERING IN HARD TIMES.
We are still in the month of: ‘Holy Spirit, my helper’. PROSPERING IN HARD TIMES – PART 2. Prosperity is one of the core benefits of the redemptive work of Christ. 2 Corinthians 8:9. Jesus came, that you and I may enjoy the best of life. John 10:10b (AMPC). Life is for enjoyment, permit me, it is not for ‘endurement’. Haggai 2:8.
If your father is the owner of the wealth of the World, he couldn’t have given it to the sinners first. No reasonable father will have children and they will say: ‘I am hungry’ and he will give the neighbours’ children food first, true? So if your father is the owner, then you should enjoy the wealth first. Is that clear sir? Glory to God. Haggai 2:6.
-Today, I command, whatever that belongs to you is released in the name of Jesus!
God has all it takes to prosper you in hard times. God is only looking for who to trust with His riches. Now, hear this and hear me well! The Bible is made of the Person of Jesus and the Principles of Jesus. We have two parts of the Bible – The Person of Jesus and His principles. The Person of Jesus guarantees your Heaven but His principles guarantee your earthly prosperity and success.
Many have accepted His Person but they didn’t apply His principles so they are frustrated, they are born again, they will make Heaven but they suffer on the Earth. When you apply yourself to the principles of financial prosperity, you will never be financially helpless; so we walk by principles if you must succeed. Is that true? Joshua 1:8. So (for) prosperity and success, you are the one to determine it by applying yourself to the principles of God. It is principles that make people to prosper.
What are these principles that will make me to prosper?
1. Believe in God’s Word.
Until you believe God’s Word you can never prosper in hard times. You must trust God enough to believe His Word because God is not a man that He should lie. Numbers 23:19. You must believe that whatever God says you don’t doubt it, is that clear sir? Because He can never lie, anything He says to you is done! If he says: ‘Give, it shall be given’.
Don’t doubt it, are you hearing me, sir? Numbers 23:19. One day, Peter was fishing in Luke 5:2-7 and he caught no fish and Jesus said to him: ‘Young man, I know you have toiled’, he said: ‘We have toiled all night’. Luke 5:4-5. He said: ‘I am going to do it based on Your Word’! And Peter had an explosive catch because he stood on the integrity of God’s Word. You can never prosper if you don’t believe the Word of God. Are you hearing me, sir?
-Somebody will have an explosive breakthrough in the name of Jesus!
Luke 1:45. If you don’t believe the Word of God you can never prosper. Now listen to this carefully, how can somebody give when you have not gotten money first? I have to believe that God, what He says He will do it. Is that clear?
You may say: ‘I don’t believe it’. ‘Ah’! Peter said: ‘Nevertheless, at Your Word’ – I know I didn’t catch any fish throughout the night but I’m going to do it at Your Word. You can’t prosper if you don’t believe the Word of God. How many believe in God’s Word? Glory to God! If you believe, it will show. Everyone that believes God’s Word obeys.
The reason you are not obeying is because you never believed.
2. Obey God’s Word.
The proof of belief is obedience. Never say that you believe something if you don’t obey it. You are struggling to obey because you don’t believe what God said. It is practical obedience to His Word that brings abundance. John 2:5-11. It sounds stupid, they say: ‘We want wine’ and He said: ‘Put water’! it will sound stupid, true? You are looking for money and God said the one in your hand, give it! (Laughing). You are looking for more money and God said: ‘The one in your hand what? Give it’. But that is how you can come out of poverty and that is how you can prosper in hard times, is that true?
Simple obedience! Without obedience there will be no prosperity, power to get wealth answers to obedience – That is, doing what God says. Isaiah 1:19. John 21:5-6. Look at Scriptures, please don’t be copying Scriptures without looking because most of you have been copying since. I didn’t copy how to pay tithe, I pay tithe. It is better to obey than to copy notes.
Now, if you copy all the notes on my teaching (and) you don’t pay tithe, it is useless. So hear first before you copy! Copying notes without taking notes, nobody will take note of you. John 21:6. He said: ‘I know you didn’t catch anything but now obey’! They obeyed! When they obeyed, what happened? There was a breakthrough!
-You too will be the next on line for a breakthrough. Isaiah 1:19. You will eat the good of the land!
Another very important principle which is the anchor of the Covenant of Prosperity is giving. Power to give is what provokes power to get. Genesis 8:22. It is (the) giving grace that is the gateway to financial greatness.
Let me say this to every one of us: Faith, prayers, fasting – they are no substitute to the giving grace. You must be a giver if you want to prosper in hard times. Is that clear?
