It’s impossible to eliminate poverty 100% because of factors such as laziness. Africa is so rich and yet so poor! A system needs to be put in place. When sin entered the garden, poverty came and abundance ceased.
Genesis 3:17 -19 “Poverty invaded creation – thorns and thistles”
Luke 4:18 & Isaiah 61 “Good news to the poor” means they will be delivered from the curse of poverty
Acts 4:34 “No needy person amongst them.”
Acts 20:35 “We must take care of the needy” God wants the Church to be giving church not a grabbing church
Galatians 2:10 “Take care of the poor”
Revelation 21 “….Nations with honour and glory….”
There is a thread here. Poverty is the work of the devil. 1 John 3:8b “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” We’ll defeat the devil by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony.
Many people think poverty is monitory but it can be material, intellectual, relational and spiritual. We need a paradigm shift. We need to wear the right glasses. Let the word of God be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
Matthew 28:18 – 20 “……..Go and make disciples of all the nations…..”
Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Acts 5:28 “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood upon us!”
Acts 19:10 – 11 “And this continued for two years, so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks. Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul,….”
Romans 15:20 “And so I have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build on another man’s foundation.”
Revelations 21:24 – 26 “And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in it’s light, and the Kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it…….”
Revelations 21:27 “But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”
Saturate Zimbabwe with God. We’ll see transformation in this nation and Zimbabwe going for the Nations: Psalm 2:8 “Ask of Me, and I will give You The Nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.” Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17.
