The Prosperity Gospel

We have been listening to James Merritt.  He decided to find out what bible verses are googled the most.  Then he decided to preach on the top 4 verses.  Last week was #4.  Joshua 1:9.
To have success, we must:
1. Experience God’s Presence.
2. Obey God’s Principles
Digest the word so God’s word is on the tip of your tongue.  (Josh 1:8)
He said he believes in the prosperity gospel, and that comes from Joshua 1:8 = OBEDIENCE
(Obviously NOT what most people are wanting to hear.)
3. Fulfilling the Purposes of God.

It was a really good message, full of truth.  It wasn’t the typical success and prosperity message you get from so many of the preachers on TV today.
