we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10
What is wrong with the prosperity gospel? Everything is wrong with the prosperity gospel, there is no reality in it whatsoever. As we read during the Apostle Pauls ministry, he was persecuted and eventually beheaded because of his faithfulness to Jesus Christ. This is not the picture the false prophets will teach you on TV and Youtube
If your being honest with yourself, your life probably sucks right now. Death and disease are rampant. Depression, anxiety, and fear haunt us on a daily basis. Why? Because we live in a broken world due to Sin. Be honest with yourself , as a Christian you are going to suffer and possibly face persecution for your faith
For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death works in us, but life in you. 2 Corinthians 11-12
So what is our hope? Our living hope is the Lord Jesus Christ, who defeated Sin and Death. A New Kingdom is coming , to abolish this evil cursed world. Stop looking in this world for salvation, only Christ can set you free!
Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28
As Jesus said, they can kill our body but they cant kill our soul. Our Soul belongs to Jesus , this is your living hope not prosperity of this world. Focus on eternity and not the temporary Amen!
