WHAT IS THE SECRET TO PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS IN LIFE?
PROSPERITY extends to our HEALTH also. Read Deuteronomy 28 (BLESSINGS FOR OBEDIENCE and CURSES FOR DISOBEDIENCE)!
3 John 2 New King James Version (NKJV)
2 Beloved, I pray that you may PROSPER IN ALL THINGS and be IN HEALTH just as your SOUL PROSPERS.
Note that Your SOUL = Your
- WILL &
It is our SOULS that FORM our PERSONALITIES AND CHARACTERS depending on what we allow to SHAPE AND MINISTER TO OUR SOULS!
It is our SOULS that YAH MINISTERS TO and then our SPIRITS act! It is our SOULS that Satan seeks to destroy day and night (1 Peter 5:7-8).
KING DAVID was a SPECIAL PERSON as seen in the HOLY SCRIPTURES who gave us the SECRET TO PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS IN LIFE:
(1 Samuel 13:14 & 22; Acts 13:22-23)
We can learn something from him about PROSPERITY IN LIFE.
YAH called KING DAVID “a MAN AFTER YAH’S OWN HEART” because of HIS CLOSE RELATIONSHIP with YAH! . King David never stopped ENQUIRING OF ABBA YAH! King David also had a REPENTANT HEART! (Psalm 51). He never stopped PRAISING and WORSHIPPING YAH no matter what (Tribe of YAHUDAH)! David was a VERY PROSPEROUS / SUCCESSFUL MAN as a result!
Joseph was another SPECIAL PERSON IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES:
According to the following Chapter in the HOLY SCRIPTURES, Joseph knew YAH’S TORAH very well plus loved YAH so very much and HIS NEIGHBOURS that he could NOT bring HIMSELF to TRANSGRESS AGAINST YAH by having sexual relations with Potiphar’s wife. Joseph is often referred to as a TYPE OF MESSIAH. YAH rewarded him greatly. Joseph really did PROSPER in Egypt as a result. Joseph teaches us how to PROSPER IN LIFE!
You are welcome to remind yourself of what happened as seen below or skip to the next point made.
Genesis 39 Names of God Bible (NOG)
Joseph in Potiphar’s House
39 Joseph had been taken to Egypt. Potiphar, one of Pharaoh’s Egyptian officials and captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there.
2 Yahweh was with Joseph, so he became a successful man. He worked in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 Joseph’s master saw that Yahwehwas with him and that Yahweh made everything he did successful. 4 Potiphar liked Joseph so much that he made him his trusted servant. He put him in charge of his household and everything he owned. 5 From that time on Yahweh blessed the Egyptian’s household because of Joseph. Therefore, Yahweh’s blessing was on everything Potiphar owned in his house and in his fields. 6 So he left all that he owned in Joseph’s care. He wasn’t concerned about anything except the food he ate.
Joseph was well-built and handsome. 7 After a while his master’s wife began to desire Joseph, so she said, “Come to bed with me.”
8 But Joseph refused and said to her, “My master doesn’t concern himself with anything in the house. He trusts me with everything he owns. 9 No one in this house is greater than I. He’s kept nothing back from me except you, because you’re his wife. How could I do such a wicked thing and sin against Elohim?” 10 Although she kept asking Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or be with her.
11 One day he went into the house to do his work, and none of the household servants were there. 12 She grabbed him by his clothes and said, “Come to bed with me!” But he ran outside and left his clothes in her hand.
13 When she realized that he had gone but had left his clothes behind, 14 she called her household servants and said to them, “Look! My husband brought this Hebrew here to fool around with us. He came in and tried to go to bed with me, but I screamed as loud as I could. 15 As soon as he heard me scream, he ran outside and left his clothes with me.”
16 She kept Joseph’s clothes with her until his master came home. 17 Then she told him the same story: “The Hebrew slave you brought here came in and tried to fool around with me. 18 But when I screamed, he ran outside and left his clothes with me.”
19 When Potiphar heard his wife’s story, especially when she said, “This is what your slave did to me,” he became very angry. 20 So Joseph’s master arrested him and put him in the same prison where the king’s prisoners were kept.
While Joseph was in prison, 21 Yahweh was with him. Yahweh reached out to him with his unchanging love and gave him protection. Yahwehalso put Joseph on good terms with the warden. 22 So the warden placed Joseph in charge of all the prisoners who were in that prison. Joseph became responsible for everything that they were doing. 23 The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care because Yahweh was with Joseph and made whatever he did successful.
The VERY FIRST MAN and WOMAN created by YAH as seen in the HOLY SCRIPTURES also revealed a lot to us:
As YAH was creating the Heavens and Earth, HE created the SECRET TO PROSPERITY / SUCCESS IN LIFE which HE revealed to Adam in Genesis as well as the 1st and 2nd Books of Adam! It is to do with RELATIONSHIP WITH YAH! There is a lot to learn from the first man and woman.
We learn from Genesis that while in the GARDEN OF EDEN, the SECRET lied in Adam’s and Eve’s Relationship with YAH – OBEDIENCE TO YAH. The minute, they disobeyed YAH’S TORAH, the CLOSE RELATIONSHIP between them and their MAKER changed. They were banished from the Garden of Eden as it was perfect and they were no longer perfect. There were fallen. Adam and Eve had to work harder at their RELATIONSHIP with YAH! (Psalm 42; Philippians 2:12)
Note that YAH made a CAVE OF TREASURES for Adam and Eve to dwell and reside in after they left THE GARDEN OF EDEN! This is revealed in the 1st and 2nd Books of Adam and Eve.
We learned through the 1st and 2nd Books of Adam and Eve, that YAH communicated with Adam and Eve Outside of the Garden of Eden but not as before. YAH did not come to them PHYSICALLY as before (See Genesis 3) or even talk to them unless they PRAYED / CRIED OUT UNTO YAH! This is saddening but shows how seriously YAH hates SIN; how SIN separates and separated us from YAH as seen in Genesis 3.
Adam’s and Seth’s (Adam’s third son) experiences with Satan beckoned Adam to pass down YAH’S SECRETS TO SUCCESS so that Adam’s descendants would not fall into Satan’s traps thereby destroying their ability to PROSPER / SUCCEED IN LIFE! Note that Satan appeared to them as women and tried to lure them into sin at which point they called on the name of GOD and HE saved them. Each person who was nominated to head SETH’S CLAN was beckoned from then on to pass on YAH’S SECRETS TO PROSPERITY to each member of the CLAN so that the CLAN was NOT POLLUTED BY SATAN! They were especially advised NOT TO CROSS OVER TO Cain’s Camp (Camp of Rejection from YAH) – Read Psalm 1 below!
Our SECRET TO PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS lies within OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH YAH!
- The more of YAH we have in our lives (through studying and meditating upon HIS TORAH as well as Observing it)
- The more we relate with YAH on a one to one basis daily in our PRAYER CLOSETS (Psalm 42; John 4; John 6), the more our ABILITY to PROSPER and SUCCEED IN LIFE INCREASES!!!
- The kind of friends we relate with especially our CLOSEST FRIENDS matter a lot because they can either KEEP YAH’S LIGHT AND FIRE GOING (Matthew 5; Matthew 25) or PUT OUT YAH’S LIGHT AND FIRE (2 Corinthians 6:14!
Sadly, As Believers in and Followers of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH, we have been misled by some teachers of the WORD OF YAH (GOD) over the years. We have been MISLED into thinking that if we are to PROSPER AND SUCCEED in life, it is ALL ABOUT MONEY AND SOWING FINANCIAL SEEDS! I am not saying that we should not sow financial seeds at all, NO, not at all. YAH calls us to offer part of our INCOMES to HIM as a form of THANKSGIVING for all HIS GOODNESS unto us. This can be seen in Numbers 18, Deuteronomy 14:22-29 and Malachi 3. This way, there will be FOOD for HIS LEVITICAL HIGH PRIESTS to eat in HIS HOUSE/TEMPLE/TABERNACLE!
Note that as believers and followers of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH, we are all (LEVITICAL) PRIESTS OF YAH as seen in 1 Peter 2:9 however there are those among us who are called to be our SHEPHERDS – Instruments of YAH to guide HIS People with HIS help through this wilderness called earth. It is these I am called (LEVITICAL) HIGH PRIESTS.
Also remember that YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH is our GREAT HIGH PRIEST! We all PRIESTS who can approach “THE HOLY OF HOLIES” but only through THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST – YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH! (Hebrews 4).
Our SECRET TO PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS is hidden in:
Joshua 1:8 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
8 Yes, keep this BOOK of the TORAH on your lips, and MEDITATE on it DAY and NIGHT, so that you will TAKE CARE to act according to everything written in it. Then your undertakings will PROSPER, and you will SUCCEED.
Psalm 1 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
Book I: Psalms 1–41
who reject the advice of the wicked,
don’t stand on the way of sinners
or sit where scoffers sit!
2 Their delight
is in Adonai’s TORAH;
on his TORAH they meditate
day and night.
3 They are like trees planted by streams —
they bear their fruit in season,
their leaves never wither,
everything they do succeeds.
who are like chaff driven by the wind.
5 For this reason the wicked
won’t stand up to the judgment,
nor will sinners
at the gathering of the righteous.
6 For Adonai watches over
the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked
YOUR PROSPERITY and SUCCESS IN LIFE IS HIDDEN IN:
LOVINGLY OBSERVING (not legalistically) YAH’S TORAH (Instructions) – Loving Instructions!
