Shining a Light on False Prosperity Gospel

If you give your hard earned dollars or your easily acquired inheritances or your paid for homes to our ministry at Becker Bible Ministries Inc., you will not automatically prosper. Your donation to further our efforts to teach the Word of God to hungry Christians all over the world will not result in a blessing of flowing wealth to come upon you with thanks from the LORD God Himself. In fact, it is not only our ministry that will NOT bring fortunes to you, but every true ministry that is guided and moved by Him.

People who turn to religion often have reached a point of lost dreams and direction. They are easy targets for the prosperity gospel to flourish under the manipulative hands of the pretend Christian leaders who seek to make fortunes in this world to finance their opulent lifestyles. Sadly, many of the depressed, lonely, lost, confused, widowed, disabled and poor brothers and sisters in Christ are tricked by these virulent techniques to transfer their small change into the pockets of the pretend Christian Evangelist charlatans.

God does not want to bless the Faithful with earthly riches! Now hold on! I know there are many Scriptures that are quoted often by the pretenders that convince the hopeful that He truly wants His People to prosper. However, when the true nature of the LORD God, Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit are known, and when believers sincerely seek to do His Will, money is the furthest thing from their minds! Why? Because true Christian workers are confident that when a work is given to them by the LORD God, all things are provided by Him to complete that job! Money is neither a worry nor a focus of true workers of God!

We have donation buttons on almost every page of our Becker Bible Ministries, Inc. for just this reason. When God moves faithful people to donate money to fund our ministry, they do it. They receive no blessing for that act alone, but rather will receive great reward from Him as they allow themselves to be used and moved according to His Will. In most cases, those rewards will not come to the generous faithful until they receive their crowns in Heaven. This will be the time when a Christian’s works will be judged and rewarded accordingly.

1 Corinthians 3:11-15

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” (1 Corinthians 3:11-15)

It is then and only then when reward is received. We cannot expect the life of luxury to be given to us in this world, but rather look for hope of great reward of prosperity in the Kingdom of God. There is only one way to receive this reward, and that is to complete the Works God moves us to do!

Not all of us can minister throughout the world. Not all of us can shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, comfort the saddened, or adopt the orphans. Some are given these tasks by God, and some are given the works by God to specifically support these efforts through generous financial support as He moves them.

If the LORD God is moving you to support our ministry, then push that donation button at the top of our Facebook page and give according to His Will. If He is not moving you to give financial support, then don’t do it! Regardless, don’t expect great blessing to come to you in this life; financial support does not guarantee an easy life nor an easy judgment!

Every penny that you give to support the Works of God should always be given only as He moves, without any expectations of personal benefit! Care should always be taken that it is His Will and His Word and His Ministry that is being accomplished, and not the ministry of the world that preaches a false gospel of prosperity!

The staff, authors and teachers at Becker Bible Ministries, Inc. thank each of you that supported our works for the LORD God this year. We do not have the words to express our deep gratitude for responding to the moving of Him through your generous givings. We remember each of you in our prayers, not only for your generosity, but also your commitment to ensuring His Works are completed according to His Will.

There are so few faithful workers, with so little time left to complete our tasks. Your support has shined the light of our ministry and His Grace into places of deep worldly darkness, and given hope to hungry Christians all over the world who crave morsels of His Word and His People to strengthen their own works for Him. Thank you for your support.

1 Corinthians 9:13-18

“Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live [of the things] of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.” “But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for [it were] better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void. For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation [of the gospel] is committed unto me. What is my reward then? [Verily] that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.” (1 Corinthians 9:13-18)
