  4. 4. Majored on the Minors and Minored on the Majors. But Gods ultimate courses start with Salvation. Health Equipping for Service Wealth Then graduate to fulfill purpose by developing Character necessary to fulfill destiny
  5. 5. Majored on the Minors and Minored on the Majors. There are courses in our Christian walk that are remedial and not our main course structure for instance. Healing Deliverance Prosperity Breakthrough They were not meant to be our destination!
  6. 6. Why is this Important? God is in the restoration business! Notice the terms used in the bible, Did Adam need Healing, Deliverance Prosperity or breakthrough in the Garden of Eden?
  7. 7. Why is this Important? Genesis 1:27-28 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
  8. 8. Remedial Courses Demonstrate Gods Kingdom Matthew 9:35-38 35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
  9. 9. God is in the Re-Business: Redeemed, Restore, Recovered, Revelation etc
  10. 10. Dimensions in God In the deliverance and salvation of the nation of Israel from Egypt. It seems like God prospered them in 4 ways
  11. 11. Dimensions in God 1.Through Pharaoh; wages and things collected as payment 2.Through Supernatural provision in the wilderness, manna 3.Through the works of their hands after the manna ceased. 4.Through their enemies conquering lands etc which they did not build
  12. 12. Dimensions in God In the same way we also experience various levels of Gods provision for us butt very few have experienced it all. For example
  13. 13. Dimensions in God 1. Many of us are still surviving on the blessings we had as unbelievers and what we had achieved in the land of pharaoh. 2. Others have entered into the wilderness where we are living supernaturally but it is from hand to mouth and we just have enough to meet our daily needs.
  14. 14. Dimensions in God 3. For some we have begun to enjoy the blessing of working with blessing of God upon the works of our hands. 4.Very few have entered into the realm of being blessed by our enemies what the bible calls the wealth of the wicked coming into the hands of the righteous.
  15. 15. Dimensions in God Remember in the Gospels Jesus himself said in My Fathers house there are many mansions or should I say there are many dimensions. I go to prepare other dimensions for you. John 14:1-3
  16. 16. Bishop T. D. Jake's “10 Commandments of Working in a Hostile Environment” The Bishop briefly took a digression in theme of the series to share a thought about “new streams” from the Book of Genesis.
  17. 17. Genesis 2:8-11 10 Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads. 11 The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which skirts the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.
  18. 18. Genesis 2:12-15 12 And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which goes around the whole land of Cush.
  19. 19. Genesis 2:12-15 14 The name of the third river is Hiddekel; it is the one which goes toward the east of Assyria.The fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it
  20. 20. T.D Jakes He said, notice, there were 4 rivers or streams flowing into the paradise of the Garden of Eden and then made the statement:
  21. 21. T.D Jakes “For our lives to become the paradise God wants it to be we must have at least 4 streams or sources flowing into our lives.”
  22. 22. Pastor Matel Okoh Particularly in the area of finances where our income from a job would be one stream or river. Pastor Matel Okoh adds another perspective to this
  23. 23. 1. River Pison It is the river that flows round the land. The land of Havaliah that has gold.The gold is a special gold. Gold signifies wealth. For you to enjoy wealth in life, there must be something that brings in a lot of money into your life.That is where witty inventions come in.
  24. 24. 1. River Pison Christians are lazy people, even human beings.We don’t want to think, nobody wants to think, but when you find out that something makes you to think, it is expanding your capacity to think. That is what we call the weighty idea, that is the Pison river, that will lead you to the place you have gold.
  25. 25. 2. River Gihon The Gihon river spreads through the land. It talks about investment. Don’t just sit down and say your salary is okay. During the time of abundance in Egypt, the bible says that Joseph spoke to Pharaoh and said save 20%.
  26. 26. 2. River Gihon You can save 20% every month. Invest it into shares.There are a lot of shares that are good in this country. Buy shares. Deny yourself. Put yourself under a condition where you are buying the future in your present circumstance. Don’t sell your future.
  27. 27. 3. River Hiddekel Hiddekel is a river which represents your job.The stream from here is your salary. Most of us start from here and it is a good place to start. We must learn that we do not work for people but with people. Even with God we work with Him and not for Him.
  28. 28. 4. River Euphrates This river represents favour in your life such that people will bless you. Has anybody ever thought about that you will stand up and say, God let somebody give me blessing today. The River Euphrates is the favour that God will use people to bless you.
  29. 29. Think about that. Expand your horizon. So that you have four rivers, and that is what psalm 1:3 talks about. “You shall be planted by rivers of water” 4 rivers. He will not wither in all seasons. Multiple sources of blessings.
  30. 30. Psalms 1:3 (KJV) And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
  31. 31. Our Success Affects Others This is why are unbelievers not attracted to the church?
  32. 32. 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 9 But I don’t need to write to you about the Christian love* that should be shown among God’s people. For God himself has taught you to love one another. 10 Indeed, your love is already strong toward all the Christians in all of Macedonia. Even so, dear brothers and sisters, we beg you to love them more and more.
  33. 33. Genesis 2:8-11 8 The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food.The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
  34. 34. 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 11 This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we commanded you before. 12 As a result, people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others to meet your financial needs.
  35. 35. Dallas Willard "Why is today's church so weak? Why are Christians indistinguishable from the world?' Should we not at least consider the possibility that this poor result is not in spite of what we teach and how we teach, by precisely because of it?"
  36. 36. Job vs. Portion
  37. 37. Genesis 29:15-30 15 Then Laban said to Jacob, “Because you are my relative, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what should your wages be?”
  38. 38. Genesis 30:25-43 33 “So my righteousness will answer for me in time to come, when the subject of my wages comes before you: every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the lambs, will be considered stolen, if it is with me.”….
  39. 39. Genesis 30:25-43 43 Thus the man became exceedingly prosperous, and had large flocks, female and male servants, and camels and donkeys.
  40. 40. Genesis 31:1-21 1 Now Jacob heard the words of Laban’s sons, saying, “Jacob has taken away all that was our father’s, and from what was our father’s he has acquired all this wealth.”
  41. 41. Genesis 31:1-42 42 “Unless the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely now you would have sent me away empty-handed. God has seen my affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked you last night.”
  42. 42. Job vs. Portion God himself uses portions Himself; tithes are a portion one in ten, Sabbath is one in seven. And His multiplications are in portions, double portion, thirty fold, sixty fold and hundred fold.
  43. 43. Job vs. Portion This is kingdom style and the world, uses portions and compound interest etc. Company Shares, Stocks and Bonds, even Real Estate is based on the principle of making money from the portion of land that you own.
  44. 44. Job vs. Portion [Certain investments seem to be more blessed by God than others. Investments in things connected to the earth, Real Estate, Gold and Silver, Oil and Minerals are steadier than others that are man made like Shares, Stocks and Bonds and money. ]
  45. 45. Giving What does the bible say about multiplicity of income streams even in the area of giving? Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 Cast your bread upon the waters, 1 For you will find it after many days.
  46. 46. Giving The Bible also teaches on different kinds of seeds in the Kingdom: Tithes, Offerings, love offerings to God, Alms giving to the poor, Prophets offering, Giving to assist those who cannot help themselves, Sacrifices
  47. 47. Wealth No people can be prosperous until they know how to accumulate wealth – Mensah Otabil [Singapore after 30 years by making it compulsory to save 23%]
  48. 48. Wealth You are not wealthy until you earn money while you are asleep – Dr Myles Munroe
  49. 49. Deuteronomy 8:18 18 “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
  50. 50. Wealth Wealth is a person’s ability to survive so many numbers of days forward…or if I stopped working today, how long could I survive?
  51. 51. Wealth These definitions and the article clearly shows the need for us to rethink our attitude to wealth, to our jobs or employment, and even to ministry, recognizing that the key to financial independence is utilizing the power or ability to make wealth and create wealth for many generations
  52. 52. To do this, we must consider a paradigm shift, our thoughts, attitudes, and the principles by which we operate.
  53. 53. Catholic Vs Protestant Christianity is divided into two clear sects the Catholic and the Protestants even the Pentecostals are protestant. You will note the poorest nations in Europe and the Americas are catholic. [Portugal and Spain, Brazil and Mexico]
  54. 54. Catholic Vs Protestant Catholics abhor prosperity in their doctrines and vow to poverty and individual development and pursuits. They are Christians but your source of knowledge determines your development because the source of your knowledge is important.
  55. 55. Catholic Vs Protestant The Catholic work ethic is the opposite of the protestant which is based on the teaching of Jesus which is “He that does not work does not eat” and the Catholic is alms and welfare.
  56. 56. Catholic Vs Protestant Up till the reformation the only way to accumulate or create wealth was to take from somebody else who has it through conquest and wars. Capitalism developed under the protestant movement.
  57. 57. Catholic Vs Protestant This is similar to the communist concept where those who work feeding many and these have no capacity to develop society. The charismatic church has to go further with business seminars and MBA classes every Sunday in church of what should have been taught in business and university.
  58. 58. Catholic Vs Protestant The parable of talents speaks or teaches knowledge about Investment and not about going to heaven. We must have renewal of mind as some information that was put in us came from a culture that does not promote individual success and development.
  59. 59. Catholic Vs Protestant There is a myth of Christianity and charity which seem to go together because of the free things we give to people and the feeding the people which is kindness but Christianity is not defined by charity only. Christianity is about creating wealth, development and opportunity and having dominion over the earth.
  60. 60. Catholic Vs Protestant If you can’t handle money then money cannot satisfy you, because poverty is not an accident it is a choice but made subconsciously but taught. People are poor because they make choices to be poor. To change Him you have to change the ideas within.
  61. 61. Conclusions The Key now is to find or discover your SEED OF GIFTING. This is what will introduce you to the other streams of income in your life.
