GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU FINANCIALLY
Last week I started a new series at HRock Church looking at Ancient Pathways To Financial Success. As I minister at home and across the globe, it’s my desire to see the Church “prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers” (3 John 2).
It is imperative for the Body of Christ to receive a revelation that God does want us to prosper financially. Here is what the Word of God says about prosperity:
But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability [power] to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today” – Deut. 8:18
In his book The Great Transfer of Wealth, my spiritual father Peter Wagner unpacks the meaning of having power to gain wealth.
- Supernatural Transfer – God can supernaturally transfer wealth to His people. A great example of this was when He blessed the Israelites departing from Egypt during the Exodus—as the Egyptians gave them “articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing” (see Exodus 3:21–22).
- Wealth Creation – This can take place when God inherently gives, enhances or imparts new skills and ideas to kingdom-minded entrepreneurs.
- Repossession – Finally, wealth comes through wealth repossession, which is the recovery of wealth after it was wrongly taken, either through a stolen inheritance or stolen goods or a rectification of an illegal transaction.
RESTORING WHAT WAS STOLEN
I have to smile at a recent example of wealth repossession in my family.
Last year, my Uncle Cho informed me that the government of South Korea had contacted him to reimburse money from land stolen from my grandfather by the government under the late dictator, Park Chung-Hee. Years ago, the government rationalized taking land from citizens without proper remuneration by saying that it needed to do whatever it took to develop Korea. So my grandfather’s land was confiscated to build a highway.
Park’s daughter, Park Chung-Hae, is the new president of Korea, and somehow her administration contacted my uncle to say the government would reimburse the Cho family with the value of the land in today’s real estate market, plus interest.
According to my grandfather’s will, his inheritance went to my grandmother, who lived to be 101 before she passed away last August, and his remaining children. Because so many of his children have passed away, including my parents, part of the inheritance was passed to me.
That is why I am smiling! You should, too, because God is going to restore what the enemy has stolen from you and your family. Take hold of the truth of God’s Word, and by faith you can walk in the fruition of His promises.
