List of Bible Verses on Believers and Prosperity

Prosperity of the Believer

Prosperity Gospel comes under a variety of names: Name it – Claim it; health, wealth and prosperity teaching; Word of Faith; Word Faith; hyperfaith; positive confession. Faith is the bottom line requisite for receiving prosperity. It’s focus is on the here and now earthly treasure rather than on the future heavenly reward.

In the prosperity gospel, someone is taught how he can use God to get what he wants, but in the true Gospel, the believer is taught to be used by God to accomplish God’s purposes.

§        Godliness causes prosperity

1.     If X is prospering, then God made them prosper.

2.     X is prospering.

3.     Therefore, God gave them their prosperity.

1.     If X is in poverty, then God allowed them to be tested.

2.     X is in poverty.

3.     Therefore, God allowed for the poverty.

For those who dissent from the more dominant probabilistic causation, and follow deterministic causation, their logic is:

1.     If X is godly, then God will make them prosperous.

2.     X is godly.

3.     Therefore, X will be prosperous.

2 Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.

Ge 33:11

11 “Please take my gift which has been brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me and because I have plenty.” Thus he urged him and he took it.

1 Ti 6:3-11

3 If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness,

4 he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions,

5 and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.

6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.

7 For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.

8 If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.

9 But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.

10 For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

11 But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness.

Jn 9:1-3

1 As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth.

Jas 4:13-16

13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.”

14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.

15 Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.”

16 But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.

Mt 6:24

24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.

1 Jn 2:15-16

15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

2 Pe 2:1-3

1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

2 Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned;

3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

Mk 10:23-27

23 And Jesus, looking around, said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!”

24 The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!

25 “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

26 They were even more astonished and said to Him, “Then who can be saved?”

27 Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”

2 Ti 4:3-4

20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,

21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
