I like it! I really do!
Riches, health, disease free living? Yes, yes, yes.
A world where God takes care of you and gives you your heart’s desire?
Yes! I like it! I really do!
There’s only one problem. Prosperity gospel is a lie.
That’s why when tragedy strikes, when disease and illness overtakes you, when we are confronted with death, there is nothing prosperity gospel can give us. It’s empty. It’s devoid of power. Because…prosperity gospel is a lie.
God didn’t send his Son to take on human form, take on the cross, and descend into hell just so we could have nice stuff. God sent his Son to die for us so that those who were dead might come to life
Prosperity gospel says, “Fear not; trust in God and he will see that none of the things you fear will ever happen to you.
That’s awesome! If it were only true. That’s a lie of the devil. He wants people to believe this because the devil knows that those who do will be totally disappointed.
Here’s what Christ promises: “Fear not! The things you are afraid of are quite likely to happen to you, but they are nothing to be afraid of!” Because with God, nothing in this world can separate us from the love of God.
And that promise my friends, you can take to the bank!
