Obedience the key to escape poverty

Obedience the key to escape poverty

Pastor Bamidele

By Pastor Layi Bamidele

Poverty is not a sign of humility. Poverty is not for people who dwell in the word, but poverty is meant for people who dwell in the world.

Pastor Bamidele

When your heaven is closed poverty is manifested, but when your heaven is open you blossom in prosperity. In Malachi 3:7-8; the bible emphasized that “from the day of your fathers ye have gone away from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, wherein shall we return? Will a man rob God?, yet ye have robbed me, but ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.”

When you carry out his instruct-ions, he opens his heaven unto you, when you refuse his in-structions you end up in destruct-ion.

When you pay your tithes as at when it is due, you will not suffer lack, but when you refuse his instructions, by not paying tithe you end up in abject poverty.

The true measure of success can only be found in his word and not in the world. Wealth is different from money, a person can have money without having wealth, but a person cannot have wealth without having money. Money has to do with the currency while wealth is unlimited. Wealth can purchase what money can buy and what he cannot buy. Money cannot give you health but wealth has abundance of health attached to it.

Our God is an all sufficient God. When your heaven is closed, the door of wealth is closed against you, but when your heaven is open you enjoy an unlimited wealth. When you operate only by what he has commanded, you will become a commander, but when you operate by what he has not commanded, you will be co-mmanded. If you want to be a commander then obey his law.

When you disobey his law, then you go low in life, when you obey his law, you will fly high in life i.e you become a high flier. Rememb-er the adage that says “Health is Wealth “.

Get this clear from me today, you may be rich and successful: not every riches can be described as riches. When your wealth is acq-uired wrongly, then you are not a successful man. You cannot cut corners (dubious) and expect to go scot free, even if you bribe your way from man, you cannot bribe your way from God. Remember the Bible says God is not mocked, whatsoever ye soweth ye shall reap.

Success is when you are rightly positioned, and prospering in your place of destiny and assign-ment. You cannot be a success without discovering your purpose in life. Take for instance, I was an engineer for so many years, but I wasn’t a success; not until I was called into ministry and I answer-ed the call. It was then I discover-ed my purpose in life and began to pursue that purpose and God began to work his wonders in my life by privilege.

You must know where and what God has in plans for you and where he wants you to be. If you are not at where you should be, you will end up struggling with nothing to show for it. When you operate in the location where he has commanded you, you will definitely blossom. You cannot play hanky panky with God. Every short cut will cut you short.

In 3 John 2 the bible says: “Be-loved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul pros-pereth”.

The reason why many people that have money often go down again is because many don’t pay their tithes, some don’t believe in it, while some others see it as a waste of money. Many believe when your tithe is paid in the church they felt it is the pastor that owns the money and they will say how can I give such huge amount of money to a pastor.

Don’t forget his instructions, many tend to twist God’s word to suit their purpose and give his word a wrong interpretation. No one can change what he has written.

When you operate under open heaven, you definitely have surplus as possession.
