SIX (6) REVELATIONS WHY MANY HOLY BELIEVERS ARE POOR AND LACKING GOD’S FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE.
PLENTY HOLY PEOPLE ARE RICH YET
PLENTY HOLY BELIEVERS ARE HUNGRY AND POOR
I have seen plenty pure ‘holier than thou’ believers bring pure shame to the good name of God BECAUSE OF THEIR IGNORANCE, laziness, wrong MENTALITY and pride.
GOD wants all His people to have enough to show His GLORY on Earth so as to show to mankind how BLESSING FULL AND RICH A LIFE OF HOLINESS CAN BE but the opposite is all we see. This makes unbelievers mock that our God is cruel to people who follow Him.
If a man is born again, Living a fervent Christian Life, winning souls for God, keeping his family intact and growing in the knowledge of God, THAT MAN HAS NO BUSINESS WITH POVERTY EXCEPT HE IS IGNORANT OF GOD’S PROMISES AND FINANCIAL COVENANTS.
Many BELIEVERS are like the elder brother of the prodigal son and from that BIBLE story we can see why many Holy BELIEVERS are poor. We all know that story. The prodigal son messed up but came back but his brother (WHO NEVER TRANSGRESSED THE FATHER’S RULE i.e holy) was annoyed not knowing THAT ALL THAT THEIR FATHER HAD WAS HIS BUT HE LIVED IN HUNGER.
Now before we say the story was only telling us how God can receive back sinners, remember God can teach people 1001 lessons with just anything, if not it won’t have made sense for that story to be talking about the prodigal sons brother and his attitude since already the father had received the boy back.
Let’s see what the prodigal son’s brother said :
“”And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at ANY time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. Please read
(1) MANY HOLY BUT POOR BELIEVERS THINK (like the prodigal son’s brother) THAT GOD SEES THEM AS BETTER THAN OTHERS AND SO THEY OUGHT TO BE BETTER THAN OTHERS BASED ON HOLINESS.
Once you have a Self righteous-Entitlement MENTALITY as a believer, you move God against you in all areas including FINANCES. (Romans 9:30-32)
No one is worth it, what BELIEVERS draw from is the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED WORK NOT SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
(2) YOU CAN’T ATTRACT WHAT YOU ATTACK
The prodigal son’s brother said HE WAS THE ONLY ONE THE FATHER (GOD) SUPPOSED TO LOVE NOT HIS BROTHER. He was attacking the ROYAL treatment accorded his brother, the Bible said:
“And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. (Luke 15:28).
God will never give you what you hate to see in others. Many good believers hate to hear anything about PROSPERITY or that others prosper. You can’t taste it by hating it.
(3) THEY KEEP WAITING FOR GOD TO BLESS THEM .
“Yet thou never gave me a kid that I may merry…( Luke 15:29)
GOD DOESN’T BLESS US BECAUSE WE BELIEVE GOD WILL BLESS US, HE BLESSES US BECAUSE WE BELIEVE HE HAS ALREADY BLESSED US.
(4) THEY WANT TO FORCE GOD TO USE THEIR HOLINESS ALONE AS THE CRITERIA TO BLESS THEM.
As believers it’s important to know that, God has many criteria for PROSPERITY. HOLINESS is just the foundation. If you have built your house foundation, can anyone park into it and live on just foundation?? Of course no. Hard work, right-faith, FINANCIAL intelligence, wisdom, confession etc are the building blocks towards a life of FINANCIAL success in God.
(5) THEY THINK GOD WILL PITY THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE HOLY.
That prodigal son:s brother was expecting the father to be CONSIDERATE but never, he got Nothing. God’s peace and mercies (grace) are only multiplied to us THROUGH KNOWLEDGE not holiness (2 Peter 1:2)
Grow in knowledge of God and you will enjoy God or else you may groan.
(6) “And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine”( Luke 15:31)–
MANY HOLY BELIEVERS DON’T KNOW, BELIEVE OR ACCEPT THAT ALL OF GOD’S RICHES IS THEIRS SO THEY SUFFER.
Many BELIEVERS have been deceived to think that all that God wants from us is holiness even though we are mediocres, failures and beggars with families wearing rag, who can’t eat good, living in squalor, children attending schools without books, torn uniforms with no shoes.
If you have a rich father and the children are begging around, WHO WILL YOU INSULT??? Many believers must stop portraying God as a wicked, nonchalant and ‘worse than an infidel’ man.
OUR GOD IS RICH TO ALL WHO CALL ON HIM.
Your story is changing for good from now in Jesus mighty name.
Summary: To escape poverty using God’s ways you must be saved, knowledgeable and obedient to God’s FINANCIAL ways.
May every thing bringing shame and reproach to your walk with God be destroyed today in the name of Jesus.
See you at the topmost FINANCIAL top and heaven at last.

The FINANCIAL VICTORY of God’s God’s genuinely saved BELIEVERS is our call, mandate and concern
Rev Ifeoluwa Onitiri is sent of God with the call and vision for the rescue and repositioning of BELIEVERS into their redemptive position of financial greatness through Biblical insights.
He is the president of IMPACT OUTREACHES ABUJA, a ministry driven with the passion to fulfill the mandate. He has enjoyed tremendous invitations to minister in several churches, gatherings, seminars and minister conferences across Nigeria and beyond still enlightening BELIEVERS on How to come into Gods financial tops for kingdom expansion and to escape the financial pain associated with the end time. He believes more and more believers are being dissuaded into finding wrong ways to be free from FINANCIAL problems because the Church makes people feel it’s a sin to talk about finances and God has no plan for His people’s finances.
