Principles of Biblical Finance
Do You Believe in Divine Healing? Do You Believe in Divine Protection? 1 Corinthians 15:46 (MSG) 46 Physical life comes first, then spiritual—
Matt 19: Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” 17 ….If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 “Which ones?” he inquired.
Matt 19: Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother, and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ 20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”
Matt 19: Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
Natural Principles of Biblical Prosperity “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. Proverbs 22:7 (NRSV) 1. Get Out of Debt “No one can serve two MASTERS. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Luke 16:13
Natural Principles of Biblical Prosperity A foolish man devours all he has. Proverbs 21:20 2. Act Your Wage “Godliness with contentment is a great gain.” I Tim 6:6 People spend money they don’t have - to buy things they don’t need- to please people they don’t even like. Debt is not a sin but The bible calls it foolish.
Natural Principles of Biblical Prosperity For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it? Luke 14:20 (NKJV) 3. Get on a Budget “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much.” Luke 16:10
Natural Principles of Biblical Prosperity In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil. Proverbs 21:20 (NIV) 4. Save your money 3 ways how: Emergency Fund Pay Cash Invest
If you stop right here and just practice these 4 natural laws: 1.Get out of debt 2.Act your wage 3.Get on a budget 4.Save your money …..you will be prosperous! (naturally!) The #1 key to prosperity is NOT giving! But once you have done the natural, God opens the door of opportunity for you to enter into the miraculous multiplication realm:
21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. Matt 19: Give Perfect = teleios (from telos means complete)
He who has pity on the poor lends to the L ORD, And He will pay back what he has given. Prov 19:17 “How much more will your Father in Heaven give good gifts …” Matthew 7:11
