All the prophets of old prophetic utterances came to a fullness of time juncture when the young virgin agreed with Heaven and answered, "Let it be according to your Word" (Luke 1:38). And the Word became flesh and dwelt among men and brought with Him the fullness of the Father's prosperity.
What the world calls "the Christmas Season" was not the birthing of Christ; He was conceived during the season of Hanukkah. Hanukkah is known as the Feast of Dedication or Feast of Lights. It was the beginning of the supernatural manifestation of God becoming flesh and dwelling among men (John 1:14). The Father sent His sperm seed (1 Peter 1:23) with the wisdom of all the ages in it, to impregnate a young virgin and she would bring forth the God-man child. At this time the fullness of God's prosperity was given to mankind. From the very moment of His conception, the process of reconciliation began between mankind and the Father. Therefore every born-again child of God can prosper in all seven aspects (spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, relationally, socially, and financially) of their life.
TRUE PROSPERITY IS DIFFERENT FROM WORLDLY PROSPERITY
True prosperity is not the accumulation of wealth; it is health, joy, peace and all nine fruit of the spirit. Peace is a victory that overcomes the world (Galatians 5:22-23).
The woman at the well received spiritual prosperity. She became the first evangelist in the world. She came to the well for a drink of water but what she received was far greater; she received the gift of everlasting life. Through her prosperity she caused all of Samaria to prosper as well. The whole village got saved because she spread the good news of her Messiah.
In Acts 3 we read the account of the man lame from birth that lay at the gate of the temple called Beautiful. When Peter and John approached the temple the lame man asked them for alms. Instead of money the lame man received the greatest prosperity of his life when Peter told him to pick up his bed and walk.
The woman with the issue of blood received her physical prosperity when she touched the hem of Jesus' garment. She touched the anointing and that is our greatest prosperity.
The Gadarene maniac not only experienced mental prosperity but spiritual, physical and emotional as well when Jesus cast a legion of demons from him.
"And they came to Jesus and looked intently and searchingly at the man who had been a demoniac, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, [the same man] who had had the legion [of demons]; and they were seized with alarm and struck with fear." -. Mark 5:15
TRUE PROSPERITY -- THE REVELATION OF THE CHRIST TRUTH OF GIVING
Jesus imparted the same attitude to His disciples. When He sent them out He said, "Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give" (Matthew 10:8b). He did not send them out to get but to give. Near the end of Jesus' ministry He checked with the disciples about their experience when He sent them out.
"And He said to them, When I sent you out with no purse or [provision] bag or sandals, did you lack anything? They answered, Nothing!" - Luke 22:35
They did not travel with luggage or money yet they lacked nothing. They gave freely out what Jesus had imparted to them.
It's important to see that we can live in that same place of abundant prosperity.
