Winning The War Against Poverty By Overcoming The Curse Of Poverty

Prosperity is a product of blessings while poverty is a product of curses.

1.     Prosperity Is A Product Of Blessings
- Adam lacked nothing because he was blessed
Genesis 1:28 - And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

- Abraham was rich because he was blessed
Genesis 22:16 – 18
16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
17 That IN BLESSING I WILL BLESS THEE, and IN MULTIPLYING I WILL MULTIPLY THY SEED as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth BE BLESSED; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

- Israelites were prosperous because they were blessed.
Deuteronomy 28:2 – 6
2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

  1. Poverty Is A Product Of Curses
    - Adam became poor when the ground was cursed because of him.
    Genesis 3:17 – 19
    17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
    18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
    19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

How Do You Overcome The Curse of Poverty
1.     Accept Salvation And The Packages In Salvation
Galatians 3:13 – 14
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

2 Corinthians 8:9 - For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

2.     Separate Curses And Blessings And Stay On Mountain Of Blessings
Deuteronomy 11:26 - 29
26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
28 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
29 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God hath brought thee in unto the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.

Keep Saying And Declaring Who You Are:
- You are NOT A SINNER trying to become saved;
You are saved resisting the temptations of sin.
- You are NOT SICK trying to get healed;
You are healed resisting the symptoms of sickness and diseases
- You are NOT POOR trying to become rich;
You are rich resisting poverty, lack and want.
