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 5:22-24 22Avoid 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.
  • Spirit
  • Soul
  • Body
God 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. 
What purpose does prosperity hold for God's people? First of all, the earth was created for man not for God. He created it for us. He gave all things for us to enjoy. 
In this fallen world we are to make disciples of all men, preaching and teaching the Kingdom of God. This is hard to do without money. You can only reach so many and so far without money for travel, to print bibles and meterials, to reach more. 

A heard the story of Warren Buffets niece who was cut off from the family fortune because she offended his way of doing things. The reaction of all who heard the story was the same. "How aweful! that rich man cutting off his niece from the fortune of the family. It was considered horrible that he gave little to his family and made each person even his sons work their own money..." Why? Why is this SO BAD. 

The bible says that a good man leaves an inheritance for his childrens children. Everyone instinctively knows that a rich man holding his wealth from his own family is an evil thing. But how much worse would it be if the God of heaven and earth, the God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and has streets made of Gold was holding out on his family. It was be an evil thing for God to live in total wealth and have his kids purposefully scrounging dumpsters. Far be it from God to do such a thing!

Those who are of God and not living in or on thier way to living in his full prosperity and provision are those who are those who are ignorant of his Promises. Usually do to traditions of Men that taught it was holy to be poor, when the bible specifically and consistently calls poverty a curse. 

So the goal of E2P is educate, train, and comment on the prosperity of your spirit, soul and body. Real world application of principles found in and based on the Word. 

We invite you to enjoy, grow, and go out into all the world and get people saved, healed, delivered and set free.

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
