WIRED TO PROSPER(9) OPERATING UNDER OPEN HEAVEN

As part of God's agenda for divine prosperity for his children, he ensures that we, his children, operate under open heavens. In Mal 3:10, the bible talks about windows of heaven being opened. This is the experience that tithers experience. God himself assured us of this kind of prosperity on the condition that we are faithful in our tithing and giving. It is perhaps the only place in the Bible that God says to us to challenge him.
However, this is the first step of this kind of prosperity. There is a limit to which supply can come from windows. The next stage that God can take you to is what is called doors of Heavens. I believe what you experience in this regard is a bigger opening, and it is not limited to meeting your financial needs, and it extends to all others parts of your life. There is also open heavens. This is the peak of having the 3 John 1:2 blessings come. You are blessed in every area, favour, good health, helpers etc.
How to enjoy Open heaven: 1. Through prayers

WIRED TO PROSPER(8) ABRAHAMIC LINK- COVENANT RELATIONSHIP

God gives to and blesses the people that He has covenant relationship with. Usually they are people that he has trusted to look after His wealth in their custody. It is apparent that once God established a heart of total obedience in Abraham, through various forms of obedient acts,including paying his tithe 'of all', He entered into a covenant with him. 
Genesis 15:1 "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward' When Abram could not understand that phrase, he requested to know how God would bless him and bring the promise in his life to fruition. He asked God 'what would you give me, seeing I go childless...' God responded by assuring him and declared in verse 5...'Look now towards heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them. So shall your descendants be' What transpired after Abram believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness, was a ceremony of covenant and blood See Gen 15:9-21. Despite Abram…

UNDERSTANDING DIVINE DESTINY-Destiny 1.0. WERE YOU KNOWN?

Jer 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb Iknewyou;
Being known by God is also being known by the enemy. He will look out for you as God himself looks out for you. Let not God knowing you be left in the past, let it stay in the present tense. As we take the last 3 pillars of the series on destiny, it is important to note that we have entered into the most captivating and yet important stage. 
When God said he knew Jeremiah and in effect he knows us. What does He mean: I believe the perception or insight is in two ways: 
1. He knew us before he formed us, even before we got into our mother's womb as tiny seed fertilised. This does not mean our souls were existing somewhere before we were born, or our souls had been formed somewhere, and God allocated the souls to us at conception. (This is the belief of some non Christian faith). It is that God is omniscient. That is, God knows everything that can be known about a character. He has complete unlimited knowledge, awareness or understanding …

WIRED TO PROSPER(7)

It is worth tracing how Abraham obeyed God.
Apart from the fact that he left home to a strange land on the call of God. He heeded the call of God to pay Tithe.

In Leviticus 27:30 it is stated 'all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord's. It is holy to the Lord.

In Genesis 14:20 Abraham paid tithe of all. You are first empowered to give and then empowered to prosper. Paying a tithe of all you receive, including tithe on your business is a gateway to prosperity. As we know, divine prosperity is accessible to all but obtainable only to the obedient. God is not a respecter of persons. He shows no partiality. Act 10:34. He does not discriminates between the Jews and the Greeks when he comes to obedience. Romans 10:12

Abraham also showed obedience in keeping God's covenant of circumcision. Genesis 17: 10 This is my covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you. Every male child among you sha…

WIRED TO PROSPER(6) THE ABRAHAMIC LINK.

The seed, in the hand of a farmer, brings forth a hundred fold. However, in the hand of a novice, it suffers a great deal. And if you want to be a doctor you go to the medical school. If you want to be a lawyer, you go to a law school, and of course if you want to be a Pilot you have to go to a flying school. Can you perform surgery having not qualified as a Surgeon, nor appear in court, without being a lawyer/advocate or fly without a licence.
So how do you think you can be prosperous without being schooled in the book of life and prosperity. 2 Peter 1: 3  'according to his divine power has given unto us all things that pertains to life and godliness...'He owns everything Psalm 50:10; 'For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills' Haggai 2:8; 'The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Hosts' also see Ecc 5:19; and 2Cor 8:9. That book is the Bible. If you want to prosper you ought to look in it. He gave us power t…

WIRED TO PROSPER(5) IN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

As a matter of fact, what is pursuing you and what you pursue determines your destiny. We have seen what tend to pursue us. But what do you pursue? Follow me:
What you pursue
a. Your hopes. It drives you from the front, whilst fear drives you from the back. For example if you hope to buy a house or buy a car for your parents, you are bound to be driven by this hope. What we want to achieve tend to drive us.

b. Your happiness - Our peace and happiness tend to cause us to be driven.
Pursuit of happiness (every man is born to pursue happiness)
It's a strong drive. But it's not the same for all. When your heart is sinful, the things yo u pursue will be bad, same as when your heart is right, you will pursue good things. This is what the bible says about it: “The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.”
Luke11:34KJV

What makes people happy is the condition of thei…

WIRED TO PROSPER(4)- IN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

So, you have your seed in your hand, faithfully ready to embark on that journey. You wonder why you do certain things that you do, the drive, the passion and the things you desire. Let me explore some things I found out:

A. Everyone is going somewhere, and most likely everyone want the fastest route.
In Phil 3:13-14
We saw what drove Paul, and we ought to ask that question what drives you or I? 1. What pursues you, will drive your pursuits. Let's look at them:
a. Your fears
Fears from our past, childhood, experiences of upbringing, our expectations. Fear of being poor. Fear of death, failure etc. Fear can motivate or destroy . Job said 'The thing I feared most has come upon me'. Job 3:24-26
“For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters. For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.”
Job3:24-26KJV

b. Your faults…

BUILDING THE QUINTESSENTIAL MAN-NEHEMIAH AS A STUDYCASE

NEHEMIAH :A GREAT EXAMPLE FOR THE TOTAL MAN- THE QUINTESSENTIAL PERSON: From 7am tomorrow morning, I will have the privilege to speak to men. Real Men. 7am on a Saturday morning is not your best time. You look forward to that time on those days to chill out and relax, extra sleep, having woken up on 5 previous working days to go to work. So, I understand the sacrifice. God must then reward the men who show up. However, against the background of the need to find that man, that teachable man that is crying out for purpose and essence of God’s call on his life, it is worth it. The sacrifice, which shall be a call for knowledge and wisdom every first Saturday of every new month until further notice, will surely pay off. You are invited. The man is so essential in the affairs of God’s mandate, and the nation; to advance, to lift, to enlarge, to pull down, to root out, to destroy and to throw down, and to build and plant. Jer 1:9-10.  In the positive and against the negative. The man is key. …

WIRED TO PROSPER(3)

If your seed is that important, what makes it so. I believe it's the very nature of the seed that makes it important. And until we know that we ourselves, whilst been someone's fruits, have seeds embedded in us. What is the nature of seed?
1. It is in-born . Your seed is already in you. Already wired into your system. Your abilities are elements of your seed. You were born with it(them). God formed my inward parts; you covered me in my mother's womb. Ps 139:13. There are certain things that we brought from 'heaven' Eunuchs who were born thus from their mother's womb...Mt 19:12.

God has already preloaded you and has called you for something great. Find that seed in you. A story I heard shared in a message by a preacher gave strength to this fact. A physically challenged boy was able to play the piano at a professional level, just listening to his physically fit brother taken lessons. That boy did not need his hands and legs to play like a maestro, he tapped int…

WIRED TO PROSPER(2)

UNDERSTANDING THE SEED. THE FIRST STEP TO PROSPERITY. The bible teaches us that that the seed is a mighty instrument in our hand, but even more mightier when sown. John 12: 24 says Most assuredly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone, if it dies, it produces much grain. This is a red letter sentence by Jesus. The grain remains the same as long as it is still in your hand, but when you let it loose, it performs wonders. 
Furthermore, we note that at creation, in Gen 1:11, the bible records that God in creation says...Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth. It's therefore not rocket science to come to the conclusion that God brought forth the fruit, not the seed. He however, left the seed inside the fruit for further fruitfulness. The seed is important. We see this importance more in 2 Cor 9:10-
Now may he(God)who gives seed …

RUN YOUR OWN RACE.

With wisdom a house is built! Prov 24:3. It's not until I got involved with development that this passage really meant much depth to me. It takes a lot of wisdom. No wonder, in construction, you need to follow the architect's master plan. And even then, you build and bring down to build and bring down again. I learnt that Michelangelo in sculpting 'David' moulded that sculpture several hundred times, until he found perfection. Even then he wanted to destroy and re-build. That exactly is how life is until you find purpose. The only time you build once and reach perfection is when you build on Gods master plan. Ps 127:1-2. Unless the Lord build the house, that that build it labour in vain. No wonder if you don't find purpose, your destiny cries out in vain! That will not be your portion.
Hence, you got to run the race meant for you, so that you can run it for a prize.1 Cor 9: 24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in s…

WIRED TO PROSPER BY WISDOM

May-I continue in Wisdom, for I have been wired to prosper. 
The fifth month of this awesome year affords us an opportunity to tapInto, and gain access to Gods abundant wealth and prosperity. The joy of knowing we have a father who is interested and pleased with the prosperity of his children should gladden our hearts. However, we can only fully engage in the abundant prosperity if we fully understand the principles and master how to resolve in our favour the mystery of wealth.
 Covenant blessings are enjoyed only by those who understand the covenants principles embedded in the word of God and diligently observe to do them. Deut 28:1-2. It's not about praying and fasting. It is all about covenant performances. Fulfil Gods covenants and get ushered into his wealth. 
Secondly, he gave us power to create or get wealth Deut 8:18. Yes, but for a purpose. Find the purpose and start to enjoy the blissfulness of true wealth. If you don't know the purpose of a thing, you are most likely t…
