TURNING ON THE SHOWERS OF BLESSING (2) by Pastor Joshua Olaleye-Digging Deep
Text: III John 2
In the last part of this series, we learnt that true and enduring prosperity is from the Almighty God, and that only the true children of God are entitled to God’s blessing, as the wicked also do prosper in their own ways. Today, as we continue in our series, may the Lord teach us Himself and shower His blessings upon us in Jesus name.
1. SHOWER OF BLESSINGS IS ALL-ROUND PROSPERITY
Man is made up of three components namely the body, soul and spirit. Showers of blessing must, therefore, include physical, soulish and spiritual blessings i.e. all-round prosperity.
3 John 2, 1 Thess. 5:23, Jer. 29:11, I Cor. 12:26, 2 Kgs. 5:1, 1Chr. 4:9, Mk. 5:28, 34, Gen. 29:31, 30:1, Phil. 4:18-19.
2. ALL-ROUND PROSPERITY BEGINS FROM THE SOUL
The prosperity of the soul is the foundation of all other forms of prosperity, i.e. bodily, material and spiritual. The soul is the non-material part of a human body believed to exist for ever and it is the life principle of man. Gen. 2:7-9, Ez. 18:4, Gen. 11:6, Hos. 4:6, Lk. 15:11-12, Prov. 29:18-19, Jn. 10:10, Job 1:8, Phil. 4:13, Matt. 16:26, Jn. 3:3, II Cor. 5:17, Rom. 6:23, Mark 8:36.
