Prosper

Does the Bible promise prosperity if we do certain things? Leave a reply and let me know what you think.

Deuteronomy 5:33
Walk in all the way that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.
Deuteronomy 6:24
The LORD commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the LORD our God, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today.
Deuteronomy 28:11
The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your forefathers to give you.
Deuteronomy 29:9
Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do.
Deuteronomy 30:1
[ Prosperity After Turning to the LORD ] When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come upon you and you take them to heart wherever the LORD your God disperses you among the nations,
Deuteronomy 30:15
See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.
Joshua 1:8
Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
1 Kings 2:3
and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in his ways, and keep his decrees and commands… so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go…

Proverbs 3:1 My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2 for they will… bring you prosperity.

Prov 8:18 With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. 19 My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver.

Proverbs 11:25
A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

Proverbs 13:21 prosperity is the reward of the righteous.

John 10:10 Jesus said he came to give us abundant life. That doesn’t mean poverty, it means abundance in this life and eternal life.

Health
James 513 Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. 14 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. 17 Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. 18 Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.

Anything
Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Wealth

Deuteronomy 8:18
But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

1 Samuel 2:7
The LORD sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts.

Psalm 112:1 Blessed are those who fear the LORD…Wealth and riches are in their houses

Prov8: 17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. 18 With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity.

Prov 10: 22 The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.

I am the Lord, is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27

Jesus displayed wealth

Luke 5: 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. [That much fish is worth a lot of money to a fisherman!]

John 21: 6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

John 2: 6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons… Jesus turned water to wine “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.” [Can you imagine how much money that much great quality wine was worth then, and now?]

Matthew 17:27 …go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.” [They didn’t even need to use their own money, God provided it to them.]

Luke 19:4 5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” [Jesus owned all the houses, they were all his because he was God, so he didn’t need to ask if he could stay there. When he sent his disciples to get a colt and bring it, it wasn’t stealing, because the colt belonged to him, as did all the livestock in the world. That is wealth!]

Jesus feeds 5000 men (20,000 if you include women and children) and 4000. [That’s a lot of money for food. Jesus didn’t even need money because he could perform miracles.]
