THROWING DARTS AT PROSPERITY THEOLOGY

For those who preach prosperity and blessing theology I, quite frankly, am going to have fun poking holes in it. The first problem is, these people I believe, leave most of us believing that God wants everyone to be blessed and prosperous with no calamity. God DOES want His people to experience blessing, but it must be balanced with adversity. You will not have true blessing without it. And the blessing is not always money or material wealth. I do not believe you will hear prosperity theology advocates citing the following verses.

DART #1-II Timothy 3:12, "And, indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus, will be persecuted."

DART #2- I Peter 3:14, "Even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed."

DART #3- I Peter 4:14, "If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you."

DART #4- Consider Job and particularly Job 2:10, "...shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?..."

DART #5- Psalm 71:20, "Thou, who hast shown me many troubles and distresses, wilt revive me again."

DART #6- Isaiah 45:7, "The one forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity, I am the Lord who does all these."

DART #7- Proverbs 1:25-26, "And you neglected all my counsel, And did not want my reproof. I will even laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your dread comes."

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

More Christians have failed the test of material prosperity than the test of poverty. 3 John 1:2 tells us that he wishes we would prosper and be in good health, EVEN as our soul prospers. If we equate prosperity to merely tangible wealth, we have missed the meaning entirely! the Lord said it is hard for a rich man enter the Kingdom of Heaven! ask yourself why! good article John!

Yes, indeed, if there's no balance in scriptural knowledge, we grow up thinking we can get away with anything and still become everything just because we're called by His name. And yes, there stupendous reward for enduring & obeying the LORD absolutely! Romans 8:17. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
