I know that people believe there pastors more than their bibles sometimes, and its something called religion...rather than relationship [with jesus]. Have a look at these verses, i just (purely outta interest) want to hear some peoples opinions with regards to these verses.
And id ask you guys to approach this question with no agenda's...
Joshua 1:8 ''Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.''
Deut 6:24 ''The LORD commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the LORD our God, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today.''
''Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose. They will spend their days in prosperity, and their descendants will inherit the land.''
Like all throughout the bible, God is a prospering God.
2 Cor 9:10
''Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed...''
I dont know why most christians believe that God wants us poor, dead, and sick. The poverty, death and sickness gospel has become very dominant...in northern Ireland at least.
''The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.''
God wants opposite of satan...opposite is ''...give, heal, build up...'' psalm 103:2-3
