2 Simple Keys to Soul Prosperity [Sermon Note]
We entered into a new milestone in this Covid journey.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
Bear fruits that will remain.
His Word for all of us in this season. We all shall be fruitful and we shall multiply
When God created them, God blessed them. See the Lord blessing us.
There are 2 words for hands
Open hands that receive
Kaf – open hands that dispenses God’s blessings
He is blessing us. Dispensing. Blessing upon us. Making us fruitful and we will multiply.
Fruitful in Hebrew means we will increase in our lives.
We shall grow every areas of our lives. We shall experience supernatural growth.
We shall be in authority. We will experience spiritual authority.
God will make us great
Prosper in all things and be in health even as your soul prospers
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
He is the Vine and we are the branches.
Our vine’s life flows in us
When vine’s life flows, we will experience soul prosperity
The soul is the mind the will and the emotion.
When the Lord said our soul prosper
There will be mental and emotional prosperity
You will not be in the state of depression
You will not be in the state of oppression
Sometimes we might be sad. But we will not be in that downward spiral of mental oppression
Mental and emotional well being
There is a will also.
The Lord spoke to me that the will is in the space of decision making.
Supernatural ability to make decision, to choose life and not death
Speak life! Speak life to your children. Correction not out of lack and fear
When you correct your children, you lift them up.
Words of grace. That grace causes the favour of God to come
This is how we are stepping in this new milestone in the journey.
This is what the Lord is doing. The thing about soul prosperity is this…
We of all people can have true soul prosperity. When your soul is prospering, you don’t have to wait for life to get better before you decide to have joy.
My people don’t have to wait for the challenge to overcome before they can have confident. We are dependent on our Lord. The contentment will be so deep when we have soul prosperity. We can have the confident that everything will be alright in Christ.
Our confident is tied to the One who laid down His life for us.
Our confident is not tied to outer confident
Our confident is tied to the One who laid down His life for us and He supplies for us.
2 simple keys to soul prosperity
- Feed on Jesus
- Don’t look to yourself. Look to your Saviour.
One of the keys to us having soul prosperity :
When u want the child to grow u feed the child.
When u want to grow in soul prosperity, u feed.
What do you feed?
Don’t keep beating yourself up.
Do not feed on your sins.
Don’t even consider it or dwell on it
Do not “tabao” (takeaway) all the sins of others and daily “eat”
Your precious sin offerings
His precious Lamb who gives His life for us
When you feed on your sin you beat yourself up
When you feed on others sin, you beat others up
He borne every beating.
You are free
All free to receive the free favour of God
That is the beautiful life of soul prosperity
When our soul prosper like that, we become so fruitful
Our Heavenly Father does not want us to live a life of guilt
He wants us to live a life we reign in life
Self-pity or self-righteousness happen when we focus on ourselves.
Trusting on our own efforts.
Look to our Saviour. Nothing to proof, no one to impress.
I am the apple of God’s eyes.
When you are watching a sermon or a book, you have a nudging in the spirit to continue, continue and not stop.
The gospel of grace. The gift and not the works of righteousness
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
Partake holy communion, true health !
Sometimes healing, deliverance, complete breakthrough is a process
Give thanks for the 30% healing
Give thanks for the 60% healing
Give thanks for the 100% healing
If you gotten discouraged, keep listening
If you are going through a discouraging time, stay contented and encouraged in Me
Our Lord is our daily delight
We get to see how our glorious Jesus is so real
Don’t look to yourself.
Look to yourself, miracles are not possible.
Unplanned for ministries
Soul prosperity is our day by day relationship with the Lord
When you take soul prosperity as a duty it becomes draggy
Never see the process of soul prosperity as a duty. Take it as dependent
Dependent on the Lord
Keep on listening the Word of God. Desperate dependent on the Lord
Prosperity is the result of Intimacy with our Lord Jesus
No one else can do this for you
Smith Wigglesworth had raised 14 people from the dead. He said he hardly spend more than 20 minutes with the Lord but hardly 20 mins goes by with the time he had with the Lord.
Just spend time with the Lord
It takes soul prosperity
2 instances of how people dwelt with
Mental health issue
Emotional health issue
If you are anxious, bring it to the Lord
Behold His goodness and you will be transformed.
2 Samuel 16:13-14
And as David and his men went along the road, Shimei went along the hillside opposite him and cursed as he went, threw stones at him and kicked up dust. Now the king and all the people who were with him became weary; so they refreshed themselves there.
He chose to refresh himself
The Bronze Serpent
Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the Way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way. And the people spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.”
When you don’t take care of your soul when you are discouraged, than the result is you will end up in a very perilous place
When we live our lives like this, the snake comes out
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.
He looked at the bronze serpent, he lived
The Lord wants us to prioritise soul prosperity
Prosper in all things and be in health even as your soul prosper.
Put Jesus in the centre and priorities soul prosperity
This is God’s desire for us.
He was judged. He was bitten. So we don’t have to beat others or beat ourselves.
We as a church shall walk out of this pandemic with soul prosperity
We shall see ourselves with soul prosperity
