FINANCIAL FORTUNE BANQUET SERVICE
"Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant." - [Psalm 35:27 ► (KJV)]
Financial Fortune: . . . what about it?
Financial fortune simply connotes an extensive amount of material possessions or money - [wealth]. From the scriptural stand-point, it is a direct function of the rain of divine favor and the rain of divine ideas. Financial fortune can be also accessed through the works of our hands. – (Proverbs 18:16/22:29)
For instance, in Genesis 30:37-43, God gave a divine idea to Jacob and that delivered him from slavery in Laban's house, in Genesis 13:2, Abram became very rich in cattle, silver and gold and in Genesis 47:13-27,as a pure function of the strange acts of God, God's favor made a distinction for Israel even in Egypt. Again, in Genesis 26:12 & Genesis 37-50, both Isaac and Jacob prospered in the midst of famine by divine favor.
Financial fortune is a provision that demands a quality walk with God. In other words, spirituality is key to true prosperity. It will put anyone in command of supernatural supplies. Financial favor can be attracted. It can also be entreated (Psalm 45:12)
Biblical Characters who Enjoyed Financial Fortune:
Inexplicable and unequalled fortune is the heritage of those that love God. This is to say that the love for God will empower both men and women to be in command of true prosperity. For the purposes of the theme for next Sunday service, we will be understudying two characters who enjoyed financial fortune in the Scriptures.
SOLOMON: his great love for God:
"And Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statutes of David his father...(" - [1 Kings 3:3 ► (KJV)]
The love for God was Solomon's launching pad into a world of financial fortune.
Solomon, the son of King David and Bathsheba, was the third king that ruled all of Israel. He ruled Israel from 965 to 925 BC. The bible describes Solomon as the wisest, richest, and most powerful man of his time. His wisdom was spoken of all over the earth. His wealth was far beyond imagination. Solomon had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines, I Kings 11:3.
According to 1 Kings 3:3, Solomon followed the footsteps of his father David and one night, in a divine encounter, the bible says that he humbled himself before God and recognized that he was incapable of leading God's chosen people in his own power.
He had a blank cheque to ask anything from the Lord – including the lives of his enemies but he asked God for wisdom. God granted him the requisite wisdom and also blessed him with great wealth, honor and obviously fame that has stood the test of time.
At the dedication of the temple, Solomon brought to God what He had never been given by any other man before, so God decided to surprise him with riches and honor which he never asked for.
JOB: His Piety and Prosperity::
In Job 1:1-5, the man Job is introduced not by his nationality, but by his godliness. Four distinctive attributes reveal the secret of his financial prowess. The attributes that characterized Job's piety were as follows: He was "blameless, he was "upright", he feared God; and he was that man "who turned away from evil." Job was so distinct that even God testified that Job was the godliest man of his generation (Job 1:8).
In addition to the unquestionable love for God, Job's financial fortune was traceable to his wisdom (Job 29:4-18). With the secret of God upon his tabernacle, Job washed his feet with butter and the rock poured out rivers of water for him. That is fortune! Job traced this to his knowledge of the secret of God. According to Job 29:1-25, when Job showed up, young men would step out of the way, old men stood up in honor, those in power would get quiet and would motion for all to stop talking and all ears and eyes were fixed on him.
To earn all of these the Bible testifies that Job delivered the poor, the orphans and the hopeless. Job gave sight to the blind, provided mobility to the lame,exposed the wicked; and delivered innocent people from harm. Job loved God and loved the people. That was why regardless of Satan's assault, Job created wealth twice. At both seasons of his life, God watched over him, he was bathed in pleasure and his head was covered with oil.
