May prosperity abound till the moon is no more

What a great blessing to pronounce!

This kind of blessing can only be fulfilled through Christ.

First of all Christ held the position to make us righteous.  He reforms our hearts through the work of the Holy Spirit.

This reformation stirs up righteousness in our hearts and it is in this righteousness that there succeeds the blessing of God – that through Christ every need is provided for.

1. The Holy Spirit teaches us the secrets of God’s wisdom.

2. The Holy Spirit nourishes us with the living waters of life.

3. The Holy Spirit inspires us with His fire to accomplish supernatural ministries that will bring many new people to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.

4. The Holy Spirit empowers you to reach new places where you were afraid to venture before His wind blew your way. Wind not only has a way of empowering us to move ahead amidst stiff opposition, but it directs us in the way the Lord wants us to go.

5. The Holy Spirit gives you a new identity with His clothing.

6. The Holy Spirit guarantees you great returns on all of your mental, physical, financial and spiritual investments.  Ask the Lord to help you invest wisely, generously and prayerfully.

7. The Holy Spirit assures you of adoption and how as joint heirs with Christ is always concerned about your best interests.

8. The Holy Spirit endue you with power through the Scriptures to proceed when all human strength is exhausted.   Ask the Lord to endow you with a supernatural power through the Scriptures to teach in a way that people learn most effectively; to rebuke in a way that brings repentance; to correct in a way that brings transformed thinking and train in a way that equips people to perform.

  1. I’m a bit confused about number 6.

    The Holy Spirit guarantees you great returns on all of your mental, physical, financial and spiritual investments. Ask the Lord to help you invest wisely, generously and prayerfully.

    Does that mean if I follow and trust the Holy Spirit that I will never lose money in the stock market? Please carify.

    • It’s more like He will guide you on how to make wise financial investments – such as the story Jesus once told of three men that were given rather large sums of money – one received a portion, another received two portions and another received five portions. At the end of the day, the two individuals who trusted and wanted to succeed doubled their investments – the other did not trust at all and buried his in the ground and received the consequence of that.
      Personally, God has asked me not to go into the stock market, but has asked that I go into hedge funds like real gold. Others I understand that God has called them to give 90% of their money away and live on 10% and just recently I heard of two who answered God’s call to sell and give everything away to the poor.
      We serve a very creative God – whatever His call, when you yield to Him, it will be an adventure of trust – but you are guaranteed a great return on your – in this case – financial investments.

  2. Okay I think I understand. So long you aren’t spouting a health and wealth gospel and equaiting financial prosperity with the level of faith one demonstrates or the level of favor one has with God. That as I’m sure you would agree is heresy.

    • Amen to that – but it is funny – when I start my financial planning seminars that is the very first thought most in attendance have – that I am going for the “name it and claim it” philosophy. I am not so sure what i say or how I say what I say that endears that to me, but I thank you for helping me clarify that for others.

  3. If I might be so bold I think it’s the way in which you word point 6 that raises a few eyebrows; mine at least.

    The Holy Spirit guarantees you great returns on all of your… financial investments.

    What you leave out is the notion is His will. It’s alluded to later when you say to ask the Lord to help you make wise decisions but it’s not explicit enough. Over the years when Christians have been taught to pray “thy will be done,” many poor teachers have made it seem as if they are really praying to “make my will, thy will” As if by praying earnestly for something they can influence God’s plan. In actuality it is a prayer of surrender to “thy will”.

    Do you see the difference?

    I never would have commented had your phrased it something like; If it be His will, The Holy Spirit guarantees you great returns…. etc.

    Blessings!
