Healing & Blessing IS Yours IN CHRIST, But Beware of Televangelists Who Seek Wealth.

Here are some verses that are certainly true and inspired by the Holy Spirit from the Word God. BUT may be misinterpreted and presented by some as a  "Prosperity Gospel." Please Read them pray-fully and I will show the reader how they are used wrongfully to further larger ministries and increase wealth rather than make mature Christians. -

Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he[a] predestined us for adoption to sonship[b] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves." Footnotes:Ephesians 1:5 Or sight in love. He Ephesians 1:5 The Greek word for adoption to sonship is a legsal term referring to the full legal standing of an adopted male heir in Roman culture.

2 Corinthians 1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God"

Romans 4:3 &22 Gen. 15:6;  "What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

* Instead of spending month after month reading new mini-books from famous televangelists (though some may be sincere) who search over and over for "secret" clues and keys or method and rituals to unlocking God's favor and blessing, read  Rom 4:3 and Gen15: 6 about Abraham's faith being blessed by God. It's not un-bliblical to comb through the Old Testament to look for specific Blessings from God to the Jews (Abraham's fleshy seed), yet as Abraham's spiritual seed (children of faith) we already have these blessings as stated in Ephesians 1 and 2 Corinthians chapter 1 as well. AND we have them because  Christ has done the work for us. We don't need to repeat Old Testament sacrements to try to earn God's blessing. So, when a man looks into the TV camera and says something like, " I believe that God is saying that since Jacob was blessed  one hundred fold when he married Rebecca, that you need to give or sow  a one hundred dollar financial seed to our ministry as a show to Him that you want that same blessing," He better be speaking from God otherwise he is  using the Bible for his own benefit.-

So, stay close to Jesus and learn to discern. Discover the Blessings of God but don't try to earn them or look for a magic number or dollar amount to unlock them, Christ has already  unlocked them all you have to do is be like Abraham and "believe."
