Lessons 4 Prosperity

July 28th, 2017

History is a good teacher. And, history is God! Those who refuse to learn from Him are doomed to repeat His courses again and again. That’s how the world become uglier. On the other hand those who pass His tests, reap His rewards. And the world enjoys His bountiful provisions. Which world, do you live in? Obviously, those who have learned are a shrinking minority while those who haven’t are turning their lives and our America into a wasteland.

So here we go! The word of the LORD came to him (Elijah). Get away from here! And it shall be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.

So he went and did according to the word of the LORD. “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” See Hebrews 13:8. Meaning get out of where you are, and live your life according to the word of the LORD in that same environment.

Be like Elijah, who went into a cave, and spent the night in that place. And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said to him, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?” So he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; for the the children of Israel have forsaken your covenant, torn down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword. I only am left; and they seek to take my life.” See 1 Kings 19:9-10. And continue reading, 1 Kings 19, and while reading determine what the word of the LORD would have you do. You do that by consulting and studying other scriptures.

So you say that’s Old Testament stuff. Think again! The Word of the LORD is none other than Jesus Christ. We learn that from Revelation 19:13. Where we find this everlasting historical truth. And He was clothed with a vesture (body) dipped in blood; and His name was called the Word of God. The centuries have changed, but God’s applications have not. One of which is to seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. See Matthew 6:33. Which means you’ll have the basic staples for survival while you are needed here, at the very least and maybe a whole lot more. To comprehend that, you must think beyond material substances. The folly of most.

Here’s how it played out for Elijah. The Ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. And it happened after while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land. See 1 Kings 17:2-7. He had learned histories lessons and life’s necessities were his. While others, who had failed to learn his lessons went without. Which always creates an ugly environment, of winner takes all.

Jesus isn’t Santa, as some think, not in July and certainly not in December. So learn this, Jesus has a long memory and bounties are showered upon those who bring forth fruits worthy of repentance. See Matthew 3:8. But sometimes at a great price; even death. Know your scriptures; know your riches in there rightful priority.

Best way to experience Elijah type of fulfillment is to ask, what can I do for Jesus, and not live the life of what can Jesus do for me. He’s already done enough. That vesture dipped in blood, is His body. The lamb foreordained to be slaughtered from the beginning of time. 1 Peter 1:20 and Revelation 13:8.
