3 John 1:2 (KJV) Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

He is saying prosperity that you have in your life is based on your soul being prosperous because God will not go around your mind.

Romans 12:2 (KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, …

 So your soul must prosper to prosper financially, produce financial prosperity. Matthew 12:33 is about this whole idea of fruit bearing. Fruit bearing is kind of a law.

Matthew 12:33 (KJV) Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

 “The tree is known by his fruit.” What’s a tree? A tree is the belief system that you have that is existing in your soul. So this tree is known by its fruit. So the fruit of a tree represents the manifestation or whatever is coming forth from the belief system that we have. The fruit could be that every paycheck I am waiting on that paycheck because I need it, because I got some bills due. That’s called living from paycheck to paycheck. That’s called paycheck fruit. God never designed you for that. What that will do overtime is put you under pressure and that pressure begins to wear on your body parts because you were not designed for pressure. You were designed for grace. That pressure starts putting pressure on and pretty soon blood pressure goes up or something in the body starts malfunctioning or you are diagnosed with some kind of disease because you are living outside of the parameter by which God designed you to live. This money pressure gets people into borrowing money and they can’t pay that but God said, I will be the Lender. He didn’t say I will be the Borrower. If you are in that kind of situation you are in a situation where you got no excess, no savings, nothing to continue on if something did happen.

The average person right now if they miss two paychecks they will be in serious trouble. You are not to be there. All you have to do is renew your mind by meditation of the Word of God. That is all you have to do. You can change your thinking through meditation of the Word and thereby change the results and things that you are getting in your life. Your life is the result of what you are thinking and so you got to change that. You meditate the Word long enough it will change your thinking and you will begin to see your finances change and you won’t be waiting on a paycheck.

Matthew 12:34 (KJV) O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Basically what controls what you think is ultimately what you say. You can say something different and start thinking something different. Start saying what the Word says about your finances. Get you a scripture out of the Bible and begin to decree it, begin to say some things. As you do that you will see your soul prosper and your finances will prosper. Now one of the places you can see that is Genesis 30:28. This is Laban talking to Jacob. Jacob had been working for Laban almost 20 years and doesn’t have enough money to leave and live on his own.

Genesis 30:28-30 (KJV And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it. 29 And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy cattle was with me. 30 For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?

 Jacob realized that as much as he could make Laban was taking it from him. That’s what I am saying about the system out here, as soon as you think you are going to get ahead they are going to raise taxes or raise prices on food or gasoline or something like that.

Genesis 30:31-32 (KJV) And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will again feed and keep thy flock: 32 I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire.

Jacob had had enough and he decided he was coming off the paycheck system and coming into the seed system. In other words I am going to use a paycheck as seed and you don’t have to pay me anything. So now look what happened in Genesis 31.  This is what happened to Laban.

Genesis 31:1 (KJV) And he heard the words of Laban’s sons, saying, Jacob hath taken away all that was our father’s; and of that which was our father’s hath he gotten all this glory.

 Glory is hard goods.  Glory is wealth. And so notice how the wealth changed hands when he came off the world system.

I am just saying, true enough you get a paycheck but it shouldn’t be your increase. That you take part of that paycheck and of course you pay your tithes, and then next you sow a seed and when you sow a seed believe God that that harvest is coming back to you.

God is getting you off of this paycheck system and into his seed system that produces prosperity just like it did for Jacob when he changed from working for a paycheck to sowing seed. Begin now to find scriptures for prosperity so your soul prospers and you think and operate that way and that tree in your soul will produce the fruit of it.
