DANGERS OF PROSPERITY!
TOPIC: RETURNING TO BETHEL! THE DANGERS OF PROSPERITY!
Jacob was a great patriarch. When he fled from the presence of his brother Esau after he had taken his birthright, he encountered God at night in a place called Bethel. There, God unfolded to him the Abrahamic covenant,which he had inherited with the accompanying protection and prosperity promises.
Jacob went on from Bethel, fresh from his encounter with God as well as the promises, into the house of Laban his uncle, with just a staff in his hand.
Twenty years later, God blessed and multiplied him supernaturally. He now had a large family with lots of earthly goods. However, he was no longer conscious of Bethel where he had encountered God. Having become very successful, he had forgotten his agreement with God but the Lord said to Jacob, “Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there, and make thee an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother” (Genesis 35: l).
This is what the Holy Ghost is saying to you today: Some of us, when we have become slightly comfortable, forget God or cause THE FIRE OF OLD TO DIE. We forget our FIRST LOVE FOR THE MASTER AND THE VOWS OF SERVING HIM 101% (excessive love for Him) which we made to HIM! We forget night prayers, FASTING, holiness, forgiveness, attending your local church, giving, tithing, etc.
Do you know that to many prosperous believers, studying the scriptures is a neglected issue and a struggle? But remember that God wanted Jacob to dwell in Bethel, His presence – THE PLACE OF HIS FIRST LOVE FOR HIM! God needs you today to return to your Bethel and His holy presence!
Pick yourself and family up and tell them: It is time to go back to Bethel. Declare a 1-3 day fast (REVIVIAL FIRE PRAYERS) if need be till your soul burns again for the LORD!
