God's Prosperity Message May Not Be What You Think!
All That Glitters Is Not Gold!
If you're not familiar with the story about the mythical character, King Midas, I'll briefly mention it to preface what I'm about to discuss with you.
King Midas was granted a wish that everything he touched would turn to gold. However, without thinking his wish through a bit before making it, he ended up with a curse instead of a blessing because he couldn't even eat without his food turning to gold. Whatever he touched would be instantly turned to the bright gold metal he had desired with all his heart to possess in great abundance.
Hello. My name is Margaret Lukasik and I'm the author of the Midas Touch Bible Study. The story above is sadly similar to what happens to many Christians. Led by many of the televangelists and prosperity ministers, they mistakeningly desire and seek after money without understanding God's desire and purpose to bless them. Once led astray, many become victims to their money instead of enjoying it the way God intended.
Seeking after riches for the sake of having more money, makes it easy to lose sight of the truth that God is our provider. Looking to Him in faith by trusting His Word opens the door to financial blessings as we grow in Christ. This practice of good stewardship trains to mind to take control over money rather than allowing it to turn the soul against God.
GOD IS OUR PROVIDER!
Did you know THAT God needs you to have financial abundance for the sake of the Gospel? He does, but not the way the world's system understands OBTAINING AND HAVING money! And HE DOESN'T WANT YOU TO BE SCAMMED OUT OF YOUR MONEY by your being tricked into thinking that because you give, you'll automatically receive a great sum of money in by some magical means.
It may astound you, but God's prosperity message is dramatically different from what you've heard preached from the pulpits of some of the large prosperity ministries and some of the television ministries that try and entice you into giving them your money with the promises of great wealth. This is not Bible wisdom. You need to know the truth so that you will never be scammed and instead give your money to ministries that follow Biblical principles and doctrine.
There are many messages on the subject of giving money to God, but the only one that counts is based upon scripture. If you're a Christian, you need to learn how to increase your money in a way that will make you a blessing and not a curse to yourself and others.
Some televangelists demand from the pulpet that their viewers send only cold hard cash because cash money is the only way for God to bless our giving. Others, make comments like, "I need lots of money because I'm not going to heaven broke" or "the more you give the more you'll receive because you'll receive a hundred fold return on your giving. Thi sis why many of these ministries are under government investigation for possibly violating nonprofit laws.
The only message I get from listening to many of these prosperity ministers is that we receive from God according to our works. We can't receive anything from God by works, because we receive from God through Jesus Christ only.
THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO FIND OUT HOW TO GIVE ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE SO THAT YOUR GIVING WILL BE A TRUE BLESSING FOR GOD, FOR HONEST MINISTRIES AND TO BE A TRUE BLESSING FOR YOU.
Before you send your money gifts to this ministry or that, you must first learn how to avoid being scammed by pastors and spiritual leaders who try to trick Christians with lies about God's financial message in order to take their hard-earned money. I don't like to waste my money! Do you?
HOW TO AVOID BEING SCAMMED!
IF YOU LISTEN TO TV EVANGELISTS, YOU NEED THIS INFORMATION!
I can't emphasize enough that it's God who blesses His children--not the unscrupulous charlatans who ask for money to help spread the gospel, but instead use your money to buy grand homes, cars and expensive vacations for themselves and their families, living a life of over-indulgence that you're supporting!
Giving money into these ministries is the same as throwing it into the trash! The Midas Touch Bible Study will give you the wisdom to know who you can trust regarding your giving tithes and offerings or any financial gifts to help promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It will also show you which ministries and persons to avoid. You're going to receive important wisdom about false promises made to Christians concerning money and the only true way to receive your financial return on giving money to God. You're also going to receive the truth about tithing. Many believe that tithing is not for us today. You can decide for yourself how you give your money to God, but there is a New Testament verse which tells us what to do in current times concerning tithes and also offerings.
Through good stewardship, you'll realize the potential to grow your finances from whatever place in life you are right now. It may take some courage, but God will be with you all the way as you learn how to draw closer to Him and look to Him as your financial provider. So take time today to find out what the scriptures say about financial prosperity and learn how to regard money God's way!
If you're not sure what God has to say about money, prosperity and abundance, this study is for you!
