Keys To Holy Prosperity - Bola Olu-Jordan
You can be a Christian and be rich if you follow this points
- Be faithful with your tithe. You don’t own it. There is a curse attached to defaulting. If you do, you set yourself in a difficult financial corner. Tithe is not only a Biblical Law; it is a universal law, reflected in every religion and culture.
- A further tenth of your income is your seed. Don’t spend it; sow it. Seeds are NOT to be eaten; they are to be sown. Use it for something tangible that will yield increase or save it. There is a divine law attached to this. Whatever you use a tenth part of your seed to do has much more likelihood to succeed than 50 percent of money from other source. It is your sweat and carries a divine power.
- Cultivate a savings habit. Many were rich years ago but today, it’s a different story. There is always a rainy day. Save for raining days. It is the preparation you make against the day that determines whether money will come back to you or run away from you. Money run from fools. It has wing and do fly. (Eccl) Be disciplined and consistent with your savings. Don’t empty your saving on funerals, naming or other ceremony. It’s a bad way to determine your future
- Be wise with your choice of accommodation. Your annual rent must not be more than your monthly income; otherwise, you are living extravagantly. If your annual rent for your accommodation is N60, 000.00 your income per month must not be less than N60, 000.0
- Deny yourself of avoidable pleasures. Spending money in the party, eatery and other social places or buying expensive things, will attract more financial commitment. It will all cease when your beneficiaries notice that you no longer have and they will even accuse your of foolishness.
- Aside from your profession, there should be a business you engage in. For instance, if you are a banker, banking is your profession, not your business. Same if you are a teacher or a civil servant. Find a business to do aside from your work. Even if you are a student. Most successful peopl
- Invest. Don’t just store money in the bank doing nothing except being used to make profit that will only be given to the shareholders. Invest in properties, shares, stocks, etc. Don’t invest in something you don’t know anything about
- Build your asset. Don’t have too many liabilities. Your car, for instance is a liability, because it diminishes in value, although very necessary. If you invest too much in it, you know your investment is on something that diminishes. There are some other investments that appreciate; you may consider putting your money there. It may be a landed property or paying up your mortgage faster than usual or any other thing. There is really no honour in having too much things that depreciates in value. There is a difference is being rich and having money. You may have money, but if you don’t use it wisely, you are not ric
- It is only in giving that there is receiving. Give to meet needs, especially needs of children of God. Don’t give to be respected. When you finish giving everything, as a ‘good man’ the respect will cease. There are three classes of people that God is happy when you give to: the widows, the fatherless and the poor, especially those in the household of faith
- There is another giving that provokes God’s blessing, giving to the course of the gospel. The only reasons why we are on earth is because of the gospel and that is the reason Jesus has not returned. If you read about the financiers of Reinhard Bonnke, and other gospellers, you will understand better. CRYOUT Magazine is such a good soil because it is purely for the course of the gospel. Why don’t you try to join the GREAT COMPANY with just N200.00 monthly. You can’t give to God and loose. It is practically impossible. Try it!
