Prosperity After Turning to the Lord
1 When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the Lord your God disperses you among the nations,
2 and when you and your children return to the Lord your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today,
3 then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes[a] and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you.
4 Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back.
5 He will bring you to the land that belonged to your ancestors, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors.
6 The Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.
The previous study of Deuteronomy Chapter 28, “The Willie Lynch Letter,” as well as the psychological warfare and spiritual oppression that still occurs are manifestations of the curses in our study. You can recall specific events in history and currently that demonstrate that the prophecy in Deuteronomy 28 is being fulfilled.
Deuteronomy Chapter 30 depicts the prosperity and restoration of the nation of Israel. It is imperative that the chosen people of God awaken now because when we awaken in who we are in Christ, we will truly repent and turn from our wicked ways through the spirit of repentance and restoration that God will evoke. When we repent, us and our children, and obey Him will all our hear and our soul, then the Lord will restore our fortunes and have compassion on us. He will gather us again from all the nations.
Ezekiel 37:21-23 says, “and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God.”
Our awakening as the church is imperative because we have a responsibility to prophesy to others for their awakening. Jene Walker
One of the biggest issues with wealth, money, and blessings is the enemy is somehow able to infiltrate the hearts of God’s people and cause them to sin against God. Often when God elevates and prospers us, we tend to forget God and make the blessing and the money our god. We begin to worship the money and material things or the gifts and forget the Giver.
Some of us wonder now why we aren’t prospering (see James Chapter 4). Ask God to reveal to you the motives of your heart. Can you handle prosperity? Will you forget God when you get the blessing? Jesus said it is almost impossible for the rich to get to heaven and this is why-we lose focus and serve god instead of God. No matter how blessed you are or become, please stay focused people of God so that ye may not perish. Dr.J.
Deuteronomy 8:19 KJV “And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”
We ask God for increase, prosperity, and wealth but for what? Why do we desire wealth? Is it for pure motives or selfish ones? When God gives us wealth and prospers us, even our wealth and prosperity are for the purpose of the kingdom. Nothing is about us and our selfish motives. Ask the Holy Spirit to fix your heart so that your desire for wealth is for God’s purpose for you and His kingdom. When God blesses you and prospers you, please don’t forget where your power to get wealth came from and the purpose for your getting it. Dr.J.
Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV “But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”
