Supernatural Wealth and Favor
Evangel Tabernacle | On 29, Aug 2018

I wanted to talk about this topic because God told me that there is a massive wealth revival that is pouring in Iloilo and we must take advantage of it
Where there is wealth increase there is also an increase of the Lord’s presence
We see some of the members of this church have already gotten their fair share. We see houses purchased, we see new businesses, promotions and new jobs. Fresh Graduates
But I feel God is still not done yet in this area of financial opportunities.
There’s more there’s more the Lord says
Some of us especially some of the new comers don’t know if wealth is biblical. It is. There’s no poor servant of God “including Jesus”
Satan locks up wealth so that the gospel cannot move forward. And today we must break that hold.
1. Wealth in Supernatural Opportunities
Ecc 9:11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
We must understand this truth that riches is not with the wise nor skillful
Understanding Time and Chance
Chance is something that is happening in a limited “time scale”
A limited “opening”

1cor 15:46 But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual.
And now we see Iloilo, as it is in the natural so it is in the supernatural
This is the season of supernatural wealth and opportunities
Deut 8:18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Poverty is one of the main killers of faith.
I think this is the season to double down on wealth investments
Graduates believe for a job
Believe for a house
Believe for a promotion
Believe for new business opportunities
We need businesses that is owned by Christians
You’re rich why u still put up business? – John Gokongwei
It’s not about wealth and retiring early.
Dan Lok retired at the age of 28,
it’s about how does your money affect that is around you
Your money will be spent first for your family of course if you have some savings you share it with your friends and then your community
Don’t let the INC, Catholics mock us
“May sumpa ka kay nag halin ka religion”
2. A Future with Jesus
John 10:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
I feel God is preparing the Christians for the greatest event to come.
Why rich companies pay high to some people?
• They get the job done, Reliable, Good decision making
Why do we buy expensive things?
– Reliable, Gets the job done & trust
So must be our spiritual service.
1kings 3:9-13 9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?10 And the speech pleased the LORD, that Solomon had asked this thing.11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Some of you, you might not get it now. How? How?
God will give you the idea, the favor, the opportunity
Pepsi dream to shut down
David Jacob Joseph Moses Peter started with nothing
Your enemies will see it “I’m rich now bug off”
Psalm 23:5-6 New King James Version (NKJV) 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life; And I will [a]dwell in the house of the LORD [b]Forever.
Now is that Season
The backsliders will see it. You see most backsliders taught that by caring 1st for their financial rather than giving service to God is more important.
A job / business that is not of God. (One of my fear)
They’ll see it
The wicked earn so much money that they can’t spend it all
They spend it in quality Food, sports car, alcohol, smoke, jewelry, girls, drugs, etc. all for themselves
That’s why some of them say “why am I so empty? “
They get invited by politicians, suddenly new friends started to pop up
You can be rich in this city and still don’t have respect.
Rich Americans work all these wealth and can’t spend it in properly.
They spend it in divorce, over-priced food, and material things.
3. Tithes and Offering
Malachi 3:8 – 15 8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed Me! But ye say, ‘Wherein have we robbed Thee?’ In tithes and offerings.9 Ye are cursed with a curse; for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation.10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine house, and put Me to the proof now herewith,” saith the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open to you the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field,” saith the LORD of hosts.12 “And all nations shall call you blessed, for ye shall be a delightsome land,” saith the LORD of hosts.13 “Your words have been defiant against Me,” saith the LORD. “Yet ye say, ‘What have we spoken so much against Thee?’14 Ye have said: ‘It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept His ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?15 So now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.’”
God only trusts a tither.
My biggest monthly expense is my tithe
• Offering is above your daily tithes
• We must know how to place our offering in the perfect time

If it does not hurt it does not work!
It is not about the amount. It is about your heart
Sow on a good soil. (Remember Isaac )
1 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. 2 And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. 6 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.9 And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife; and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.10 And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him.13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
Isaac sowed on the WORD of the LORD
E.g. Benny Hinn Saudi Arabia King Giving Watch
“A son honoreth his father, and a servant his master. If then I be a father, where is Mine honor? And if I be a master, where is the fear of Me? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, who despise My name. And ye say, ‘Wherein have we despised Thy name?’ Ye offer polluted bread upon Mine altar; and ye say, ‘Wherein have we polluted Thee?’ In that ye say: ‘The table of the Lord is contemptible.’ And if ye offer blind animals for sacrifice, is that not evil? And if ye offer the lame and sick, is that not evil? Offer it now unto thy governor! Will he be pleased with thee or accept thy person?” saith the Lord of hosts. “And now, I pray you, beseech God that He will be gracious unto us. This has been by your hand: Will He regard your persons?” saith the Lord of hosts.“Who is there even among you who would shut the doors for nought? Neither do ye kindle fire on Mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you,” saith the Lord of hosts, “neither will I accept an offering from your hand.For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same, My name shall be great among the Gentiles. And in every place incense shall be offered unto My name, and a pure offering; for My name shall be great among the heathen,” saith the Lord of hosts.
E.g. Me and Micah
Wealth / High salary is given to those who know how to handle business gospel business
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
How much is Jesus worth to you? – Everything
Mark 10:17-31 And as he was setting out on his journey, a man ran up and knelt before him and asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’” 20 And he said to him, “Teacher, all these I have kept from my youth.” 21 And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 22 Disheartened by the saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.23 And Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How difficult it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is[a] to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 And they were exceedingly astonished, and said to him,[b] “Then who can be saved?” 27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” 28 Peter began to say to him, “See, we have left everything and followed you.” 29 Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, 30 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”
