this section, I will discuss about God’s blessings and wealth, the different
types of blessings and wealth. I will also reveal to you those who are
instruments of God’s blessing and wealth, then I will relate to you how you can
obtain God’s blessings and wealth.
WHAT ARE GOD’S BLESSINGS AND WEALTH?
They are favours and properties which God uses to reward his children, it has always been the intension of God to bless his children from time to time.
In Numbers 6:22-27, God told his priests to always pronounce his name as a blessing upon the people of Israel. In this portion of the scripture, the Lord commended Moses to till Aaron and his children to use the following words in blessing the people of Israel:
May the Lord bless you and take care of you;
May the Lord be king and gracious to you;
May the Lord look on you with favour and give you peace.
And the Lord said, “If they pronounce my name as a blessing upon the people of Israel, I will bless them.”
I will like to disclose to you now the different types of God’s blessings.
TYPES OF GOD’S BLESSINGS AND WEALTH
All genuine blessings and wealth come from God.
There are two main types of forms of God’s blessing and wealth. They are:
1. EARTHLY OR PHYSICAL BLESSINGS AND WEALTH:
This is the type desired and prayed for by many people. Earthly blessings and wealth end on earth because it is physical and people value it. God gives earthly blessings and wealth to those who obey his commands (Read Leviticus 26:1-13, Deuteronomy 7:12-15 and Deuteronomy 28:1-9).
All these passages of scripture talk about blessings and rewards for obedience. Now let me tell you the second type of God’s blessings and wealth.
2. HEAVENLY OR SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS AND WEALTH:
A perfect example of this type for form of blessing is the Beatitudes or Sermon on the Mount (Read Matthew 5:1-12). This form of blessings and wealth brings true happiness that lasts forever.
I will now reveal to you the instruments of God’s blessings and wealth.
WHO ARE THE INSTRUMENTS OF GOD’S BLESSINGS AND WEALTH?
They are the media or channels through which God pours out his blessings and wealth on his people. Some of these instruments are:
1. THE PRIESTS:
They are the first instruments of God’s blessings and wealth. God recognizes his priest because he chose and anointed them himself. In the Old Testament, God blessed the people of Israel through Aaron and his descendants. These priest also have the power and authority to curse you. So be very careful when interacting with them. Beware of false priests, those who claim to be priests of God.
2. THE KINGS (Those who fear the Lord):
Such kings are instruments of God’s blessings and wealth. Some of the kings who feared the Lord in the Old Testament are King David, King Jehoshaphat, King Josiah, etc. These kings always seek the face of God before they go for war and God never disappointed them. The king has the power and authority to bless or curse his authority. Be careful and never curse your king because God himself warned against such acts when he said, “The heart of a king is in my hands because I chose them myself. Just pray for them.”
3. GOD’S PROPHETS:
They are those chosen by God to prophesy in his name. In the Old Testament, God spoke to his people through his prophets. God can bless or curse you people through prophets. Some of the great prophets of old are: Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos, etc. do not despise God’s prophets no matter how small or wretched he or she might look because he warned against such acts when he said, “Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm.”
God gave parents the power and authority to bless or course their children. Your parents are your earthly gods.
In Ephesians 6:1-4, Saint Paul described the rights of parents and children. He said,
“Children, it is your Christian duty to obey your parents, for this is the right thing to do. “Respect your father and mother” is the first commandment that has a promise added: so that all may go well with you, and you may live a long time in the Land.
Parent, do not treat your children in such a way to make them angry. Instead bring them up with Christian discipline and instruction.”
Now, let me go the next instrument of blessings and wealth.
5. LEADER, ELDERS AND MENTORS:
Recognize and respect your leaders, elders and mentors because they have the authority to bless or curse you. Your leader is anyone who guides and directs you in any organization. It might be your Manager or Director of your place of work. Your elder is anyone who is older than you, no matter the age difference. Your mentor is someone emulate his lifestyle or follow his foot step.
Never disobey or cheat them.
Now let me real he last but not the least.
They are those who through perseverance and faith, overcame all tribulations and trials that came their way while they were on earth. And God rewarded them with his heavenly kingdom. Endeavour to have a patron saints – those saints you emulate their foot paths because they intercede for you in the presence of God. Most times, God answers your prayers and blesses you through their intercession.
I will now reveal to you what you should do to obtain God’s blessings and wealth.
HOW TO OBTAIN GOD’S BLESSINGS AND WEALTH
Generally, God’s blessings and wealth are favours which God gives his children, but there are certain states you must attain or things you should do before you can enjoy these favours.
Some of them are:
This is the first law in heaven. Lucifer (Satan) was thrown down from heaven because of disobedience. Before you can obtain God’s blessings and wealth, you must obey his laws and commandments. Jesus Christ himself was obedient to God even to the point of accepting a shameful death – death on the cross of Calvary. But at last Good raised him and gave him a name above all other name, that at the mention of the name Jesus Christ, every knee must bow and every torn confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God, the father.
There is unity in the holy trinity, they work hand in hand. Prophet Amos also said something about unity in Amos 3:3. He asked, “Do two people start travelling together without arranging to meet”.
Also one of the spiritual laws says,
“United, we stand. Divided, we fall.”
This law can never be revoked or changed.
In Luke 10:1, Jesus chose 72 men and sent them out two by two, to go ahead of him to every town and place where he himself was about to go. He did this because, he knew the power of unity.
Now, I will reveal to you some other effects or merits of unity.
ADVANTAGES OR EFFECTS OF UNITY
These are some of the effects of unity.
(a) In unity, prayers are answered
(b) Unity brings God into the home. God said, “Where two or more are gathered in my name, I come in their midst.
(c) It brings down God’s blessings and favour. Psalm 133:1 says, “How wonderful it is, how pleasant, for God’s people to live together in harmony.
(d) It brings progress: When there is unity and understanding, progress comes faster.
Now let me discuss about another important criteria to get God’s blessings and wealth.
3. OFFERINGS AND TITHES:
A title is ten percent of your monthly earnings or income which is meant for the priest of God, and should not be more or less of this measure.
Most people do not pay their titles and offerings. God asked you a question through his prophet Malachi in Malachi 3:8.
He asked, “I ask you, is it right for a person to cheat God? Of course not, yet you are cheating me. ‘How?’ you ask. In the matter of titles and offerings”.
In verse 10, he said, “Bring the full amount of you titles to the temple, so that there will be plenty of food there. Put me to the test and you will see that I will open the windows of heaven and pour out on you in abundance, all kinds of good things.” (Read Malachi 3:6-12).
Like I said before, tithes are meant for anointed priest of God. Do not pay your titles and offerings to those false priests. Leviticus 27:30-33 teaches you how to calculate your titles and offerings. Read it up.
Now, I will reveal to come of the advantages of paying your titles and offerings
ADVANTAGES OF PAYING YOUR TITHES AND OFFERING
Some of the advantages you enjoy when you pay your tithes regularly are:
a) It prevents you from living a wasteful life and also helps to be able to give account of your monthly income or earnings.
b) Paying of tithes helps you to have a sense of responsibility. Do you pay your tithes?
Let me go over to the next one.
4. ALMS GIVING AND VISITING PRISONERS:
Alms giving is the act of helping the less privileged. God has blessed so that you can also bless such people. When God discovers that you help the poor and the needy, he will shower more blessings and wealth upon you. Be careful not to give alms to the wrong people. It is more advisable to give alms through the orphanage homes.
Also to visit those in prison and put similes on their faces. It attracts God’s blessings and favour.
5. SOWING INTO THE LIVES OF GOD’S PROPHETS:
God regards those who feed, care and provide for his prophets.
In Matthew 10:40-41, Jesus said to his disciples, “whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes God’s messengers because he is God’s messenger will share in his reward. And whoever welcomes a good man because he is good will share in his reward”.
Do you welcome God’s prophets?
Now let me reveal to you, the last but not the least criteria.
6. LETTING GO TO LET IN:
This means depriving yourself from certain frivolities in order to obtain God’s blessings and wealth. There are many characters or behaviours that can prevent you from receiving God’s blessings and favours. When you live a life of immorality, God stays away from you. Therefore you can obtain his blessings and wealth. Examples of such lives are drunkenness, prostitution, fornication, lesbianism, homosexuality, greed, slot, gluttony, etc.
Are you ready to let go these immoral lives in order to let in God’s blessings and wealth?
