Prosperity Ministry

Believe and Trust in Your Man of God

Prosperity ministry teachers are often criticized for teaching the "Prosperity Gospel". I recently saw a news reporter on CNN do a feature story criticizing a prosperity ministry Pastor for driving an expensive car and living in a mansion. During the interview he attempted to discredit the Pastor because he felt his prosperity message was just a ploy to get rich.

You may have even felt that way yourself. Well if so, be careful not to get on the wrong side of the fence regarding such matters. Psalms 105:14-15 says...

      14He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
      15Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

In Genesis, Moses' sister Miriam spoke ill against him. Her criticism of Moses was about to hinder what God wanted to accomplish through Moses. So despite Moses' prayer on her behalf, God struck her with leprosy and removed her from the camp.

It's always interesting to me that the world has no problem with an athlete or entertainer earning hundreds of millions of dollars for providing entertainment to the world. But just as the CNN reporter suggested, many people feel that anyone teaching God's Word should work for free and live in poverty.

However, this view is completely contrary to what the Bible teaches about prosperity ministry. Consider The New Living Bible translation of 1 Corinthians 9: 7-14...

      7What soldier has to pay his own expenses? What farmer plants a vineyard and doesn't have the right to eat some of its fruit?
      What shepherd cares for a flock of sheep and isn't allowed to drink some of the milk?
      8Am I expressing merely a human opinion, or does the law say the same thing?
      9For the law of Moses says, "You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain."[c] Was God
      thinking only about oxen when he said this?
      10Wasn't he actually speaking to us? Yes, it was written for us, so that the one who plows and the one who threshes the grain
      might both expect a share of the harvest.

      11Since we have planted spiritual seed among you, aren't we entitled to a harvest of physical food and drink?
      12If you support others who preach to you, shouldn't we have an even greater right to be supported?
      But we have never used this right. We would rather put up with anything than be an obstacle to the Good News about Christ.

      13Don't you realize that those who work in the temple get their meals from the offerings brought to the temple?
      And those who serve at the altar get a share of the sacrificial offerings.
      14In the same way, the Lord ordered that those who preach the Good News should be supported by those who benefit from it

It's clear from the scriptures that God intends for the man of God that teaches His Word to receive support from those they minister to. This includes a prosperity ministry. So, why should it be acceptable for an entertainer to benefit from his labor but unacceptable for a man of God teaching the Gospel not to do so?

Moreover, people who make a living by teaching and preaching the good news about Jesus, the Anointed One, are supposed to prosper in ever area of their lives and ministries. So when they do, don't look down on them. Instead, sow seed into their lives to bring about your own prosperity ministry!

Believe and trust in your man of God and put yourself in position for your prosperity to be manifested.
