Wealth of the Sinner

Exodus 12:36 (NKJV) And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.

During the release of God's people from Egypt, the Egyptians handed over their wealth. This is because of a spiritual law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 2:26, "to the sinner He [God] gives the work of gathering and collecting, that he may give to him who is good before God."

Israel had to provide an offering to be released from bondage. This offering was the first Passover.

The Passover was what the Bible calls, a burnt offering. This was before the people received the ten commandments, so it was the only sacrifice required to make them good before God. After providing the offering, the children of Israel were instructed by God to just ask for the plunder (Ex. 12:35).

When Jesus offered Himself on the cross, He offered all the sacrifices required to make us good before God. The Bible says in Romans 3:24 (NLT), "Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins."

So now we know it belongs to us, what do we do? We can go to war. We bind the enemy (Matt. 16:19, Matt 12:29*). We loose ministering angels to gather the wealth (Heb. 1:14, Ps. 103:20, 21, Ps. 35:27*). We ask God to put us in the right place at the right time and open our eyes to see good opportunities (Ecc. 9:11, Jer. 17:6*).

I have seen this work in my own life. My main source of income is for an invention. I receive royalties every three months. My most recent royalty check was fifty-per-cent higher than usual; God is so amazing!

There has never been a better time for you to begin to collect what God has provided for you. Let these words saturate your being. You are blessed, receive it. Enjoy one of the best experiences possible---blessing others.

Be blessed!

*I have included these Scriptures for your easy reference:

Matthew 16:19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
Matthew 12:29 how can one enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?
Psalm 103:20-21 Bless the Lord, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word. Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.
Psalm 35:27 "Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant."
Ecclesiastes 9:11 time and chance happen to them all.
Jeremiah 17:6 For he [the man who trusts in man) shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes.
