Shocking! This is the key to clean, safe wealth.
What I admire about the word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit as our teacher, among others, is that it really does not matter how many times you read a particular scripture. Until He reveals its meaning to you, your claim to have understood that scripture is just superficial, academic, mental and only at the common sense level.
Last year I asked a young man what he does for a living and I was shocked at his answer. He said “fraudster” What? He repeated “fraudster” I shed tears for him. Today, cheating, killing, lying, stealing, giving and taking bribes and hurting others to get money, wealth, fame and recognition is all over the place. Even some in the church indulge in these vices.
In my meditations this dawn, the Holy Ghost showed me the key to attaining wealth, success, fame and power without cutting corners and indulging in any of these listed vices.
This key has been well spoken about by many. As you read now, you are very likely aware of this key perhaps at the casual, academic, and mental and common sense level, but not something that is inside you and part of your life.
Our Lord Jesus Christ taught this key 2,000+ years ago. It never expires!
The key to attaining wealth, success, fame and power, honour without cutting corners, lying, cheating, stealing, giving or taking bribe, hurting and defrauding others is a two step action.
Yes just two steps!
One, seeking God and His kingdom first and above everything else in our lives. And two, seeking His righteousness and right standing with Him. Then all these things (riches, wealth, money, fame, prosperity, honour) shall be added unto us!
I said this is too simple!
Potency of the key
The Holy Ghost told me it appears too simple but it is very potent. He then showed me that the potency of this key is amply demonstrated in the lives of these four, great, wealthy, famous and honourable personalities in the Bible;
i. The Perfect, upright and blameless man, Job
ii. The world-renowned man of wisdom, wiser than the civilization of Egypt, King Solomon
iii. The world-acclaimed father of faith and many nations, Abraham
iv. and The man-after-God’s-own-heart and the greatest that ever lived who was also the King of Israel, King David.
i. The Perfect, upright and blameless man, Job
The LORD described Job as “ there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man who feared God and turned away from evil” (Job 1:1 & verse 8 ESV)and the Bible described Job’s wealth in the following words; “there were born to him 7 sons and 3 daughters…7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, and 500 female donkeys, and very many servants, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the east” Job 1 verse 2-3. Job even pleaded for the (possible) sins of his children as they party and make merry. This he did continually.
To the extent that Job’s love for God, fear of God, avoidance of anything evil and his wealth, prosperity, success, fame and power attracted the attention of all the people of the east and satan too. Therefore satan sort permission from God to test and prove whether Job genuinely loved God or he loved God because God had blessed him with abundance. The result of this “lab” test where satan brought series of disasters upon Job and wiped away all the children of Job, destroyed all his possessions and humiliated him with a terrible skin disease all proved that Job truly loved God without condition. In the midst of these afflictions Job made the famous statement “the Lord gives, the Lord takes away, may the name of the Lord be praised” What an exemplary lover of God!
ii. The World Renowned Man Of Wisdom, Wiser Than The Civilization Of Egypt, King Solomon
King Solomon loved God and gave God the kind of sacrifice that no one had done before. And the LORD appeared to Solomon in the night dream and issued out a blank cheque to Solomon by this statement “Solomon, what shall I give you?” Solomon to the shock of many at that time and even today did not ask for riches, power, fame, honour etc but asked for wisdom in order to walk uprightly before the Lord.
God was impressed and said “ Because you have asked this, and have not asked for long life, riches or the life of your enemies, , but you asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold, I now do according to your word. Behold I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honour, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days”.
Check this description of Solomon’s overall success:
“Solomon’s provision for one day was 30 measures of fine flour, and 3 scores of meal, 10 fat oxen, and 20 oxen out of the pastures, and 100 sheep, besides harts, and roebucks and fallow deer, and fatted fowl” They couldn’t count these ones, the fatted fowls, harts and the roebucks. “And Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt” (1 Kings 4:22 & 23 & 30 Holy Bible)
The civilization of Egypt! No other civilization has so captured the attention of scholars and laypeople like the civilization of Ancient Egypt, but the Bible says “Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt”
See how King Solomon’s wealth and success is graphically captured in 1Kings 10:4-5:-
When the Queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built, and the meat of his table and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cup bearers, and his ascent (entry) by which he went up to the house of the Lord; there was no spirit left in her (she almost fainted). And she said to the king,
“It is a true report that I heard in my own land of your acts and of your wisdom. However, I believed not the words, until I came and my eyes had seen it: and behold, the half was not told me: your wisdom and prosperity exceeds the fame which I heard”
What a monumental success and wisdom and blessing!
iii. and the world -acclaimed father of faith and many nations, Abraham
By myself have I sworn, says the Lord, for because YOU HAVE DONE THIS THING AND HAS NOT WITHELD YOUR SON, YOUR ONLY SON. That in blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall posses the gate of his enemies; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; BECAUSE YOU HAVE OBEYED MY VOICE” (Gen 22: 16-18).
“And Abraham was old, and well-stricken in age: and the Lord had blessed Abraham in ALL THINGS” (Gen 24:1 Holy Bible).
v. The man after God’s own heart and also the greatest King of Israel, King David.
The man after God’s own heart was a specially blessed, favoured, honoured, and respected man.
And Now The Key!
Dear reader, hold your breath and lay hold on this key once and for all.
It’s an easier, cleaner, hassle free way to prosper, and achieve fame, power, and honour without hurting anyone and yourself in the process as many do today. The evidence of its potency has been amply demonstrated by the great prosperity of these four heroes that the Holy Ghost showed me.
And the Holy Ghost revealed to me that the easiest and most effective key to prospering, succeeding, being wealthy and being famous and powerful without sweat, fraud, sin is,
“SEEKING FIRST THE KINDGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS (money, riches, wealth, honour, power, success, fame for which many kill, lie, destroy, give and take bribes, slander, cheat etc) SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU” Matthew 6:33
By personal experience, meditation is key to receiving revelation.
What does this simple key mean?
Seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; it means our first and number one priority in life must be to search, to look for the rulership of God. To seek his kingdom established. To see his will done every day and in every way. It means to seek, to work, to make choices and decisions to please Him every day as a first priority. It all involves loving God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
His righteousness refers to the things that make you have right standing with God. We must fulfil all righteousness. Every scriptural requirement of our Christian life must be observed and fulfilled. E.g. tithes, offerings and every other good works. All the great success examples the Holy Spirit showed me have fulfilled these requirements hence the showering of heavenly blessings upon them. They did not work for money, but it was lavished upon them. Making money was not their number one priority, but they pursued God’s kingdom and righteousness first and above all their pursuits. It’s the blessings of God that make us rich and adds no pain or sorrows to it.
Many go to church but are not seeking God as a first priority. Is pleasing God number one on your list of priorities? It’s all about where you place God in your life. If you place Him anywhere else apart from the first position, that is why you go to church but you still steal, lie, cut corners, you still give and take bribes to succeed, you kill and hurt others to make money.
It means when we serve God rightly, He will bless us. As we saw, Job, King Solomon, Abraham, and King David all placed God first in all their endeavours and they lived righteous lives before the wealth was showered upon them. Clearly, these heroes did not set out looking for money and fame, they were just pleasing God daily and the Lord fulfilled His promise by blessing them. Let’s not make the pursuit of money to take the first place in our lives. The first place in our lives must be for the Creator. Yes.
God Himself called Job a perfect man, upright and blameless, and a man who feared God and avoided evil. So is it possible to be upright and blameless and be rich? Yes. The Lord showed me it is possible for me to be blameless and upright even today in 2016. Once this is revealed to you, you have received the grace and the power to make it a reality in your own life.
One secret about revelation is that once you get revelation into a particular matter, you receive the power to possess, manifest, practice it and even pass on that truth.
“The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and our children forever that we may DO (that we may practice, manifest, fulfil) all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29 vs. 29 AKJV).
In my own life, I have set out to serve the Lord and please Him. He is the first priority of my life. My choices, decisions and steps are deliberately set to place God first far and above any human being, even myself. I do not live to please anyone, not even my own self. This is the life a disciple. The Lord told me His plan for my life is to do His work with all my time and skills. And I have successfully given up my 13 year’s award winning sales career to work for Him.
What about you? What can you give up for the Lord’s sake? Will you drop that ungodly life style, bad habit, cheating, stealing, lying, killing and hurting others to achieve your targets, objectives and goals? Will you begin to use this key of placing God first and living uprightly? What a clean key!
I urge you, to take this simple yet effective key which prospered these heroes; King Solomon, Job, Abraham, and King David who applied this key and made clean wealth, fame and power without hurting others and themselves. Receive the grace that goes with this key Amen!
