Salvation is deliverance from Poverty.....Don't start a Business others cannot buy into!



SALVATION IS DELIVERANCE FROM POVERTY!



Introduction
The good news that Jesus died for our sins and gave us victory over the works of darkness to touch and transform the whole man from inside out. Salvation is a change of position from the world to the kingdom of heaven, from darkness into light and from poverty to wealth. 

Salvation is the reconciling of man with His God, who is able to do all things for the man.  The Lord God is a spirit, but man is still in flesh, though his spirit has been renewed by the Spirit of God, the motions of sin in the flesh is still there in his life.

You know that when you eat exotic food - I mean quality food, cakes, ice creams and other delicacies, you are feeding your flesh and soon the flesh will begin to burst out.  People will say you are looking good, thereafter, you are face-to-face with fatness, and if you do nothing to reduce your food intake, you become fat and movement becomes a problem.


When you give you spirit the word of God always in the morning, afternoon and night, the same thing will happen.  Your attitude, mindset and behaviour will start changing from worldliness to godliness. 


Exercise your Kingdom Authority


I can tell you that competition in the business world is very strong, and unbelievers are doing everything to make sales, using means and methods a believer cannot use to get Sales Orders and Contracts.  No child of God that fear the Lord will give a bribe, or use her body to get a contract or make sales.  But unbelievers have no problem doing such and at any time it is required.


There was a time when a lady came complaining to me that a particular man is demanding gratification before he would give her contract in a major project under construction. The matter is made worse by ladies and women who were willing to submit to such demands.  My counsel is simply, prayer targeted prayer, take authority over the man's request for gratification, rebuke the man in the spirit and give the power to approve to the Holy Ghost and ask Him to help you.  Declare in the name of Jesus that you will not be refused because of gratification.


After this prayer, you return to the office to take your contract and execute it with precision and according to the terms.  Unbelievers can be calling on strange gods and using demonic powers and influences to get job and contracts, but, we call upon the Living God and ask the Holy Spirit to help us.  When necessary, we take authority over the devil and his agents.  With such authority, no mortal man should harrass a child of God or deny him, what the Lord has given him.  When you know the Lord has given you anything, you have to enforce its release.

When a child of God is saved, he needs to understand how to operate in the kingdom of God and receive sweat-free blessings from God.  When a believer understands how things work in the kingdom, then his freedom and breaking-out has practically come!  A believer must know how to exercise his kingdom authority over the devil and enforce the release of his blessings through prayer.

Winning Attitude - Millionaire Mindset
How it works is that you will have to rise up early to study the word of God and pray, committing the day unto God and receive the blessing of the day before you step out of your house. In your office, you are diligent and sensitive to do the right things first.  You are diligent to be a professional whose skill and know-how can be commended by both your superiors and subordinates.  

You are focused on delivering the best to your employer at all times and when the need arises, you are willing to bend-over rules to ensure you deliver the best of result to your employer.  The rule says you close  by 5.00pm, and Saturday is work-free.  But, when the need arises, you suffer some inconveniences to produce a better result for your employer, even if you are leaving their employment the next day.  Such effort is always rewarded by God Almighty, who see your heart and your labour.  Give your best time and effort always.


Christ in you is a blessing to your employers, because you will be dedicated to your job and perform it as unto the Lord.  You will do only those things that are right and approved and you will not subvert your employers.  Christ in you means you are trustworthy at all times.  You will speak the truth and take steps that will help your organization to excel.

Work or Business?


May be, you are not employed when you received Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and you are asking yourself the question "What will I do now"?  My answer is simple, decide what you want to pursue:
1. Learn a skill
2. Seek employment
3. Establish a business, no matter how small

Do not start a business you cannot improve its processes and distribution structures. Don't start a business that cannot be deepened with time and do not start business others cannot buy into.

Which ever option you decide to take, you have to examine your finances and seek how to improve it from your side, improving your skill and marketability.  Seek and acquire new skills, seek and obtain new ideas of how to do old and new things better.  Seek a simple business you can do well and improve the way the business is being done at the moment.

From practical experience, it is difficult to walk straight in life when you have not secured certain things - First, your means of livelihood.  You can be saved as a poor man, but you must immediately rise up to conquer your environment and forces of darkness around you that had kept you poor.

There is a reason why people are poor.  You must identify the reason why you are poor, why your family are poor and work hard at both your prayer alter and physical work to pull yourself out of poverty...this time around, you have God and the Holy Spirit to help you.


When you have identified the reasons why you are poor, decide to partner with God throughout your lifetime in everything you do as a covenant partner.  Learn what makes you a covenant child of God and do them, work hard to excel and ask God to bless you and the works of your hands.


When you have secured a reasonable means of livelihood, your dignity is restored and you can reason like a person and a child of God.  You can say no to any request that is not godly and you can begin to appreciate righteousness and holiness better.


Prosperity is not the main reason for salvation, but a prosperous child of God, with riches and wealth from God, is an enormous blessing to his generation. You have to maintain whatever God gave you to increase and multiply it...that is the rule in the bible.  If you do not multiply and increase the gift will leave you.


So, the Word of God will not depart from your mouth because your business is doing well or you have been promoted to the Managing Director...NO! You should continue to study and meditate on the word of life and get more humble and dedicated to the things of God.  Without the word of God inside of you, you cannot be humble to be a blessing as God would want you to. Prosperity brings up the issue of pride of position and achievement.  


I knew a fine gentleman that loved the Lord before and started out being a Pastor in a Baptist church.  But this man was also very intelligent, he speaks the truth and had integrity that people respected.  Over time, he became a managing director of a thriving bank in Nigeria in those days.  He took his truth and integrity into the Board meetings and before long, he became a Boardroom guru.  


He became very popular in the business circles and with such influence and enormous goodwill, he left preaching the gospel...And it was so till his death, he never came back to preaching and teaching the Word of God again.


When the blessings come, remember from where you started. Do not destroy the landmarks of where you are coming from and do not allow worldly wisdom takes over.  Jesus said those that endure till the end will have their names written in the Lamb book of life - which means many will not be able to endure to the end.


Depend on His grace
The grace of God is important to the success of a believer.  The bible made it clear that it is not in him that willeth or in him that runneth, but in God that showeth mercy.  You may be diligent, but if the opportunity does not come your way, your diligence, and skills may never be known.  No matter how talented you are, without opportunity, your talent will waste away.

His grace is supernatural enablement, favour from people you do not know, public acceptance of your product, goods and services with a little advert. The supernatural empowerment I am talking about brings destiny helpers your way, people who would be committed to assisting you until you become successful.


Ask for His grace
So, we must always ask for His grace and mercy to go with us. The grace of God makes things happen for people, and His grace goes with His presence. May the grace of the Lord that make things happen be your portion today, in Jesus name!
