There is much confusion and controversy in some parts of Christendom concerning what is often referred to as the “Prosperity Gospel” and today let’s face this head on!
First of all, let me clarify one thing.
There is no such thing as a “Prosperity Gospel” – there is only ONE Gospel and that is summed up in John 3:16.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever should believe in HIM will not perish but have everlasting life.
Before continuing, let us check out that word “believe”. This is not a passive verb, but an active one. The devils also believe (passively) in God but they are trembling and perishing. So passive belief is not enough.
The word “believe” found in John 3:16, carries the meaning of “to entrust to, to commit” in the original Greek language. We could sum it up saying that it means to actively commit your life to Christ and trusting Him with it.
Jesus promises abundance:
Now in the 10th Chapter of the Gospel of John, Jesus Himself made a declaration which can only be interpreted in one way.
There is more right here! »
