Being rich is better than being poor

What would you rather be a poor christian who cannot afford anything or one who is rich like Abraham? Abraham was rich in cattle,silver and gold as seen in Gen 13:2. A lot of people believe that blessings in the christian society are not manifested in terms of riches but instead spiritual gifts. This is not true. The bible shows the great men of God as being full with abundance. The world does not respect poverty. If your God is so great why can’t you afford. Why do you always beg if your God is the great provider?

There are those who believe that only the true descendents of Abraham are entitled to these riches but Gal 3:7 reminds us that ….. they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. Also Gal 3:8. emphasises that the nations will be rich so it’s not just individual blessing but that which extends to nations. We are often told to look at the cross or to look at Jesus for an increase in blessings. However our blessings did not originate from Jesus but from the Abrahamic covenant. Abraham is our standard, Isaiah 51:2 says look unto Abraham your father…… for I called him alone, and blessed him and increased him. We are stepping into a season where the wilderness will be like Eden and the desert like the garden of  God, Isaiah 51:3.
