The glory of Wealth

Updated on January 22, 2011

7 figure seeks Pt.2

Wealth is expedited in our lives, when our dependency is on the one who is the supreme Father of wealth, who is the owner and the maker of all that is known and unknown. Therefore in a manner of speaking, all wealth is inherited. The problem begins when some wants to illegally occupy an inheritance that has not been seeded to them nor is it in the linage as a promised possession.

In Deuteronomy 8:18 it say that it is the Lord that gives us the power to get wealth that he may establish his covenant which he made unto your fathers. These people who want to illegally occupy territory that has not their father’s imprint are called “wanna be’s”.

These “wanna be’s will play a game with the enemy, believing themselves to be wise only to find out that they were the enemy’s mark because in the end, wealth is indeed inherited.

This is akin to some members of the bride of Christ, unable to manipulate Christ, her husband, will begin acting out the role of a “wanna be”. She say, “I wanna be that” or “I wanna be this”. Remind you of Gehazi the servant of Elijah who was unwilling to wait his turn.

Therefore the bride, unwilling to wait and move according to the Spirit of God, becomes an apostate, accepting the enemy’s invitation; she aligns herself with the gods of this world in hope that they may over-ride the plans of the Father’s inheritance.


Let us continue to look at Luke 16:19in relationship to wealth.

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day”.

As we have seen from Strong's the Greek word for sumptuously is lambano, meaning to take in whatever manner.

And as I have said in part 1, this rich man had investments that abounded to his prosperity daily. He had seen his investments take off financially, witnessing a daily growth, but he was mean, evil-hearted, and uncompassionate only having a vision that was directed at his own glory, to the satisfaction of his wants and desires. I would even mention that he was not concerned about the service he gave to his family but justified himself in the concern of his affairs.

We also in the story have the man Lazarus which typifies the suffering savior. This man typifies one,

· he was under severe attacks of the world system (Is.53:3,Despised and rejected) having sores from the Hebrew makkeh meaning, wounds, blows, pestilence, strike, stroke

· the was under attack by people whom he loved (Jn.3:16 For he so loved)

· the people whom he daily visited that he may have compassion on those to whom he was sent yet he found none (I am sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel)

Daily they bickered at him, the Pharisees and the Sadducee s, trying to trap him into saying something so that they could remove him from the gate.

The devils plan is to remove you from the place where God has set you to be a witness.

Therefore each of us was sent to make our presence known at "the gate" to which God has given us responsibility and authority.

This man Lazarus was not merely laid but "kept the gate" of the rich man,

· to prevent any mishap from his estate

· to keep his wealth flowing Deut.8:18

· to keep his family

· to prevent the adversary from coming in

Some times we will receive prosperity and we will think that it came because of our own power not recognizing that it was a “Lazarus” who stood in the gap.

That is, sometimes we have nothing to do with the wealth that comes to us, it was “Lazarus” who was obedient to God and woke up in the midst of the night to intercede for that which he did not know.

It was because of “Lazarus” intercession that caused God to open your womb for children, for ideas, etc.

You see, if God told you that it was your prayer that was the answer to a certain individual’s wealth then you might become proud even to the point of going to the individual and saying, “If it wasn’t for my prayer you wouldn’t be enjoying this success”

You ever hear people say, if it wasn’t for me you wouldn’t be ____

This make you want to say, “My God, what will I have to do to get rid of you”.

So God gives us tongues, that when we pray, it’s an unknown tongue, we are unaware of the one or situation for which we pray.

But wait until “Lazarus” is removed.

Wait until the one who was responsible for your intercession is removed to another place.

In 2Samuel 6:11, there is a unique occurrence, it says, “And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obededom the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obededom, and all his household”.

Lazarus was a kind of ark and when the ark is gone the presence of the Lord leaves and there is no glory of God.

We see that as long as the ark was in the house of Obededom the Gittite, the Lord blessed his house.

David saw the blessing of the Lord over on Obededom house and said, “Wait a minute, it’s in the wrong place. It belongs over here!

Lazarus was ill treated, just as the ark was “ill treated”; given no respect from the days of Shiloh.

Lazarus had to stand at the gate all by himself.

Have you ever been in a place where you wonder, “Lord, I feel alone, for none is with me to do your work? They have all left and gone their own way; Judas betrayed me, Peter denied me and Saul is constantly trying to kill me.

The scripture says that they laid him daily at the rich man’s gate.

Lazarus did not miss a beat, he was on the job 24/7 but the rich man was oblivious to his intercession and for his concern for the rich man’s life.

He did not know that because of “Lazarus”, the adversary sent to destroy him was kept away from his house, his kingdom and all his investments.
