Doing Business With Jesus by Kenneth Copeland Misguided religious traditions are sneaky. Even after you’ve learned better than to believe them, they can creep back into your thinking. Unscriptural teachings about finances are especially insidious. If you don’t watch out, they can slip up on you because they’ve been so prevalent over the years. One reason I teach for at least a few minutes about heaven’s economics in almost all my meetings is because our minds need to be continually renewed in that area. Otherwise, wrong things we’ve heard can start sounding right again. We can start thinking things like, Maybe it’s not really God’s will for me to prosper. After all, Jesus is my example, and He was poor when He was on earth. “Well,” someone might say, “Jesus actually was poor, wasn’t He?” No, He wasn’t! That would have been a scriptural impossibility. God always keeps His WORD, and He told the Israelites in Deuteronomy 15:4 that if they obeyed Him, “There should be no poor among you” ("New Living Translation"). Did Jesus obey God? Certainly, He did! He’s The WORD incarnate. Plus, He was a tither, which means He qualified for the promise in Malachi 3:10: “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” For Jesus to be poor, God would have had to break that promise, and He DOES NOT break His promises. “But Brother Copeland, the Bible does tell us that Jesus’ disciples were poor. In Luke 9:3, it says He sent them out to minister without food, money or even a change of clothes.” 4 : BVOV
