Righteousness and Riches By Pastor Paul Enenche

HEALING, DELIVERANCE AND BREAKTHROUGH SUNDAY SERVICE – 22ND SEPTEMBER 2019
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): PSALM 37:25-26; JOB 36:11; PSALM 35:27; DEUTERONOMY 28:1-2; PSALM 112:1-3; 5:12
MESSAGE TOPIC: RIGHTEOUSNESS AND RICHES
BY: DR. PAUL ENENCHE

SERVICE OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understanding the relationship between righteousness and riches
  2. Understanding wrong financial practices to avoid

Righteousness is combinable with riches; in fact righteousness facilitates riches (Job 36:11)
Integrity undergirds prosperity; financial integrity will facilitate Kingdom prosperity
Holiness brings wholeness (Nothing lacking, missing or wanting)

SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO HAD CHARACTER AND RICHES:

  1. Job (Job 1:1,3)
    Job was righteous and he had riches
  2. Joseph (Gen 39:6,21-22, 41:39-44)
    Righteousness facilitates the commitment of God in the life of man
    Unrighteousness hinders Divine supplies
    It is impossible to be unrighteous financially and expect supplies from God (Prov. 13:11)
    The principles of God combined with principles of the world will neutralize themselves
  3. Abraham (Gen. 14:21-25; 13:2; 24:1)
  4. Daniel (Dan. 1:8; 6:10; 2:48)
    Integrity will not reduce, it will enhance; character is not a minus, it is a plus
  5. Uzziah (2Chron. 26:5)
  6. Joseph of Arimathaea (Matt. 27:57)

On the other hand, unrighteousness frustrates Divine supplies. God will never enrich the crooked, He will never empower the fraudulent (Jer. 17:11; Jer. 22:13)
Ill-gotten wealth has no future; unjust means of income lacks destiny
Whatever does not come legitimately lacks durability
Whatever you do not get by right, by favour or by labour does not enhance your life; it holds for you no future
Whatever is built on unrighteousness attracts the curse of God
Avoid financial practices if you expect supernatural supplies

SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO WERE UNRIGHTEOUS FINANCIALLY:

  1. Adam (Gen. 3:1-7, 23-24)
  2. Achan (Josh. 7:20-25)
    Anything that is not yours will corrupt what is yours; what is not your possession by right is targeted at destroying what is yours from God
    It is very critical to avoid ungodly, unwholesome and unrighteous practice for the sake of your life on earth and eternity in Heaven

FINANCIAL PRACTICES AND DEALINGS TO AVOID:

  1. Avoid taking possession of what does not belong to you (Eph. 4:28; Zech. 5:1-4)
    Anything that does not belong to you will not add to you, it will only subtract from you
  2. Avoid defrauding or cheating others to increase your means (Lev. 19:13a; 1Thess. 4:6)
    Anything that does not belong to you will not add to you, it will only subtract from you
  3. Avoid the oppression of the poor and less privileged for financial gain (Lev. 19:13; Jer. 22:13)
  4. Avoid the adulteration of products or the falsification of measure (balances) for the purpose of gain (Prov. 28:8; Lev. 19:35-36)
  5. Avoid the falsification of purchase evidences or receipts for financial gain (Psalm 7:14-16; Rev. 21:27)
  6. Avoid the act of bribery (giving or receiving) for financial or other advantages (Job 15:34; Amos 5:12)
  7. Avoid the keeping back of change or balance that is meant to be returned or retired (Acts 5:1-3; 1Thess. 4:6)
    Every time you take something that is not yours, that thing is making sound in the ears of God
  8. Avoid doing low quality jobs in order to magnify financial gains (Eccl. 9:10)
    Every time you are given a task, do it with the best of your energy
  9. Avoid every form of blood or evil money (1Tim. 6:10; Jer. 22:13, 17)
    Any money that you get that defiles your conscience, will deny you your destiny

CONCLUSION: Righteousness and Riches By Pastor Paul Enenche

Every form of unrighteous, ungodly or unholy money must be avoided for the purpose of your destiny in time and your future in eternity
