Prosperity by Covenant

"…If you start thinking to yourselves, “I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!”—well, think again. Remember that God, your Godgave you the strength to produce all this wealth so as to confirm the covenant that he promised to your ancestors—as it is today…" Deut 8:17-18 MSG italics and emphasis mine

If you want folks to switch off | sign out, start talking about financial prosperity. Many would say it is unnecessary focus, waste of precious time for meditation and prayers. Yet the same folks would work 50hrs a week, bargain and scramble for a few cents in shops…Do I blame and judge them . . . not entirely!

For one, Prosperity Gospel has been abused so much so that it has rendered many defensive. The name itself "Prosperity Gospel" is misleading…remove 'Prosperity' from the Gospel and there is no Gospel [Read Isa 61]. God does not give us wealth, He gives us Power – enablementability – to get wealth.
