Many folks resent the prosperity gospel…. so may I then ask?..
Why would the new life of the new man live on the same standard as his former life as a pagan man, an unregenerated man! Does salvation change anything? Of course and if nothing changes in his lifestyle or belief then he is as dead as he was and as dead as he could be.
Yes… the new birth means a new start for the new man. A new hope, a new success. Instead of poverty, plenty. Instead of man’s righteousness, God’s righteousness, instead of sorrow, joy. Instead of shortage, abundance. Instead of cursed shall thou be, blessed shalt thou be. Everything God creates is seen in abundance..FROM OIL TO JOY…
Why be born again to live just as one did before he was made anew?
Why would kingdom life be as broke and as messed up as the carnal life?
Why would I still be cursed and yet saved?
BLESSED shalt thou be….in the city…in the country…in the fruit of your body…in cattle and offspring….your basket and store…when you come in and when you go out.. (28:1-6).
ALL these BLESSINGS shall come upon you and OVERTAKE you (28:2)
Under the law they were blessed ACCORDING to measure, under grace we are blessed BEYOND measure
Friend if God’s people in the old testament, unsaved yet followers of the Lord, be blessed beyond measure (Deuteronomy 28) then why not You and I under the new covenant the superior way, be blessed over and beyond measure? If God can COMMAND the BLESSINGS on the Old Testament saints and their storehouses and ALL which they set your hand to do under the old covenant how much MORE will God COMMAND the BLESSINGS on us and our storehouses and ALL which you set OUR hand to do under the NEW covenant.
ARE WE BETTER OFF OUNDER THE OLD LAW and its blessings than we are under God’s total plan for redemption for all men? I say no a thousand times no. Friend you just cant believe in being saved and not redeemed, going to heaven yet remaining broke. REDEMPTION Means redeemed from the curse of the law….. isn’t it time to believe it and live like it, so accept it and go get it then live like you have it
