Prosperity Gospel vs. Prosperous Living

Get the full In the Zone message right here, and find out what it really takes to be zoned in!
What does it mean to live in the zone? It means to be blessable. Go back to the Godcam. If I’m zoned out I’m not blessable. You can say blessings. I can say blessings, all day and night, but I’m not gonna understand the true essence of blessings until I’m zoned in. I’m blessable. When I’m blessable I realize God is the blesser (say blesser), I’m blessed (say blessed), and I’m blessed to be a blessing. Say that. I’m blessed to be a blessing. We either live in the blessed place or the land of –ing.
Are you living in the land of –ing? Earning? Housing. Clothing. Procreating. Bling-bling. Kaching-kaching. A lot of people live in the land of –ing.
“How you doing man?”
“Oh, I’m just living in the land of -ing!” And the frustration, the alienation, and the destruction in the land of –ing is staggering! When you’re in the blessed place you understand everything you have comes from who? God! Everything! Your creativity, your aptitudes, your skills, your abilities, your drive, your perseverance. Everything, everything comes from God! It’s the <applause> thank you. It’s being on the receiving end… I’m in the zone… of the tangible and intangible favor of God. You cannot make an argument scripturally for anti-tangible stuff. You cannot make an argument from Scripture in the whole anti-wealth mentality. The father of our faith was a multibillionaire!
But don’t hear me wrong. Don’t blog about this, don’t misquote me. I’m not talking about the fact that it is God’s will for everyone to be rich. I don’t believe in the prosperity gospel. I do not believe that God wants everybody to be loaded. But, you cannot make an argument Scripturally for anti-wealth. Abraham’s servant said, “Man, my master has got a lot of stuff. He’s loaded!” But see Abraham understood, because he’s in the zone, that everything came from God, thus he was a manager, not an owner.
