The Wealth of Wisdom Part 18

God Wants You to Prosper- Pastor Dale explains why he agrees with the King James version in 3 John 2, where it says “above all things”. God considers our prospering above holiness. It’s a matter or degree and priority. God doesn’t want us to go to hell, be sick, or be in poverty. God wants to give us good things (Matt. 7:7). Saying God causes car wrecks and other evil things is calling God a child-abuser, which HE IS NOT! God’s riches in glory (Phil. 4:19) are greater than your need, but you have to ask (James 4:1-3) and to speak to those things that come against you (Rom. 8:31-34), because God reconciled us by the death of Jesus Christ (Rom. 5:10). We must believe that God is, and that He is a rewarder (Heb.11:6). He gives us the natural things (Matt. 6:28-33), but we are to first seek His kingdom and His righteousness. Wealth and riches are in our houses (Ps. 112:1-3), and God gives us the power to get wealth (Deut.8). God wants you to prosper (Josh. 1:7,8; Ps. 1:1-3).
