Money is the root of what???!!

Money is the root of evil...or is it the root of good... or is it the root of a tree...What is money?      First of all money is paper made from trees. It cannot, in and of itself, be good or bad. It's paper. It's a means of currency for trade. Let's get real here folks...      I’ve heard far too many people, Christian and Non Christian misquote and misuse and abuse the following verse (and others like it) by saying: Money is the root of all evil, therefore you shouldn’t pursue money or have much of it. In fact if your rich you must have some sort of sin in your life, or it’s filthy lucre, or you had better try to get rid of as much of it as you can. One famous preacher, not knowing that his statement was self defeating, stated that it's not a sin to have money only to have any left when you die. He meant that you should make sure to give it away as much as possable. Of course the bible says that a good man leaves an inheritance for his childrens children... so I guess h…

The Gospel

Gospel… What does this term “Gospel” mean? Many of us know it means “good news” but what is the good news? Many oversimplify it to the message of salvation. Salvation: Man was created perfectMan chose to disobey a direct order from God hoping to be "just like God" which he already was because he was created in his image.This disobedience caused a disconnect from God and this brought sin. Sin caused death which brought fear.Jesus came in the fullness of time and lived a perfect sinless life. His sacrifice, death, burial and Resurrection from the dead bought and paid for our redemption. It restored us to our created and rightful place as his created son's. Not to be confused with Jesus his only begotten Son. Begotten vs. Created (adopted)In him we have our life and being. We were living in a curse as a result of Sin. Jesus redeemed us from that curse.We became born again. Spiritually new. Old things passed away all things became new.We still have a mind that needs renewal a…

What is Prosperity?

The world sees prosperity as having a big house, and lots of nice cars. They see money and women all around you as prosperity. They look to icons like Micheal Jordon, Hugh Hefner, or Snoop Dog as what it means to be successful. Others look to politicians, or kings of finance like warren buffet. What is prosperity from God's point of view?

1 Thessalonians 5:22-2422Avoid every kind of evil. 23May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it. SpiritSoulBodyGod is interested in WHOLE person prosperity.  He wants you to get born again and filled with his Spirit. That's spirit prosperity. He wants you to have a renewed mind and knowledge and wisdom and understanding. He wants you to have healing and health, long life, wealth, and protection from attacks of the enemies of your life and calling. That's body prosperity…

E2p Now Stands for Empowered To Prosper Now in this present world and in the world to come. 
"The Blessing" was given to mankind just after his creation. It was the command of God, the driving purpose for man, the underlying passion of everything man has ever done and God has ever done for man. The God who does not change ( ) and cannot lie ( ) spoke a  series of commands into His man. These words set the stage, the precident, and the tone for all that was to come, forever. If you are asking yourself: Who am I? Where am I from? Why am I here? What can I do? Where am I going? Then you need to start with The Blessing! This was, is, and always will be God's original intention for all men, women, and children everywhere.
