Theology of Prosperity Excerpt

Chapter 1

What is Theology?

Theology is the study of God, or the study of any subject from either a Religious and/or Spiritual point of view.

"Study to shew thyself approved." (2 Timothy 2:15)

Accordingly, to begin to Study the Theological aspect of any subject matter is one of the noblest Divine assignments which we can ever hope to undertake.

Our education is not complete until and unless we have obtained a knowledge of Almighty God.

Study, therefore, is the only instrument which can open the doors to a Divine knowledge about God.

Also, the more we learn about the Master is the more we discover we have to learn about Him. In addition, the process never ends.

The foregoing is our first obligation, to put God first, for it is only after we have given the Master His rightful position in our lives that He will bless us.

The aforementioned is necessary in order for us to be enabled to create a firm and solid foundation, upon which we can build the remainder of our precious lives.

We can "prosper" for a short time without any help from God. However, sooner or later we will lose it all, because of the weakness of the foundation, upon which we may have built our human successes.

Unfortunately, there is always a temptation to achieve accomplishments on our own, without consulting the Lord.

The foregoing may be due to the fact that we may be filled with a sense of super confidence in ourselves.

We should not, however, underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit to transform our financial status in life.

Accordingly, with the power of God behind us, even the "sky" is not a limit to what we can achieve.
