What does the bible say about the prosperity gospel? Is the prosperity gospel biblical? Watch this DLM mini-sermon to understand the dangers of the name it and claim it theology.

So where are the teachers from the word of faith movement false teachers what do they exactly teach that is against god’s word they believe in the force of faith they basically say that you can speak things into existence if you have enough faith you can always have health and wealth if you have enough faith by just manipulating the power of the faith force like

A god so in other words you basically create your own health and wealth you just kind of claim what scripture promises you that’s what they believe they also call this the name it and claim it theology or they also call it the prosperity gospel they believe that the laws that supposedly control the faith force work independently of god’s will and i believe god

In the son if you ask me anything in my name i will do it now do you understand what it means to ask god something in his name it means to ask him in his will we see the same thing throughout scripture for example john 15 verse 7 says if you abide in me and my words abide in you ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you you see we are not little gods

Will because our intentions are wrong james 4 verse 3 says you ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly to spend it on your passions you adulterous people do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with god therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of god you know this is why these hyper charismatic churches

These false teachers draw so many people because they preach what people’s sinful hearts want to hear what they desire prosperity money health wealth a perfect life here on earth but that is not what scripture says 1 john 2 verse 15 says do not love the world or the things in the world if anyone loves the world the love of the father is not in him if you are a

Have a perfect life in this sinful world just look at the example of all the apostles 2 timothy 3 verse 12 indeed all who desire to live a godly life in christ jesus will be persecuted while evil people and imposters will go on from bad to worse deceiving and being deceived now if you go to these churches don’t turn off the video don’t go to the next one i’m

Need of a savior because you have real faith in jesus christ and because you love him with everything that you are scripture tells us not to be greedy but to be content with whatever god gives us 1 timothy 6 7 for we brought nothing into the world and we cannot take anything out of the world but if we have food and clothing with these we will be content are you

Content with just food and clothing are you content with what god gives you hebrews 13 verse 5 keep your life free from love of money and be content with what you have for he has said i will never leave you nor forsake you that’s an awesome promise from god i will never leave you nor forsake you i’m not saying that you cannot ask god for help for financial help

For health for all of these things because you can you are his child he is your father and he cares about you and he’s not a sin to be rich god can bless you financially to give him the glory just look at job david is another good example and solomon but nowhere in scripture does it tell us that every single christian will be rich nowhere does he tell us well you

For you he will work all things together for good the good things and the bad things all of it together for good for you romans 8 28 and we know not we wonder we know that for those who love god all things work together for good for those who are called according to his purpose now god doesn’t say that everything you will experience will be good he says that he
