Ecclesiastes 7:12,13 "For wisdom is a defence and money is a defence, but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it."
    One can get through life better with wisdom than with money -Jeremiah 17:10,11 "I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings. As the partridge sitteth on eggs and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool." 1Samuel 2:7 "The LORD maketh poor and maketh rich. He bringeth low and lifteth up."

Psalms 102:20 "He will regard the prayer of the destitute and not despise their prayer."-More

In Him is abundant living now! Eternal life doesn't start. We're in it now! 'Take the bull by the horns' now! Don't let the battle chance pass you by.
    We are human becomings, becoming the person God sees us in the future being. Our choices along the way often prolong the agony. 
    It's very important to believe that God is going to bless.(to be under the favor of God where He works things out for you and protects you, etc.).and prosper you -Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please him. For he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Deuteronomy 8:18 "But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God; for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth....." John 15:5 "I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit. For without me ye can do nothing.(nothing of value will last without God's purposes founded in us)."
    A few people still believe that God is out to punish them, to teach them lessons, and with severity they feel they deserve. If God says."bless them which persecute you".(Romans 12:14), do you not think that He also would abide by this? Of course! After you study the word 'persecute' here, realize that you may have been persecuting God and youself through believing that God must be some kind of harsh monster, and that you are probably deserving of His wrath.
    He sent His Son to take all that's bad about you on Him, so that you could have all that's good about Him. God loves you, greatly! -Ephesians 2:4. But all this does one no good unless they accept it as true. That's what belief is.
    Belief must be changed if you ever expect to be 'hitting the mark' and be blessed by God. God is an intelligent, and personal 'energy', an energy that you can be in alignment with, so that it flows in to you; called the Holy Spirit.

Some in a year will be more than they are now and some less. Why?

Inside us we just know that we were once far greater than we are now, and this knowing about that, this deep inner sensing meets opposition so often in this life as we long to be more of all that we know to be true in the depths of our souls.

In Him is abundant living now!

John 1:4 "In him was life and the life was the light of men."-Original for 'life' in the Greek means 'fullness of living, active and vigorous, actively blessed and enjoying living'. 

1John 5:12 "He that hath the Son hath life and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life."

John 5:24 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life.".(When? Aren't we still here now?) 

John 17:3 "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

John 10:10 ".....I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.(original Greek is 'super abundance'). This is more than God having paid for all sin in the death of His Son. This is about His life, now, alive and very much aware and involved in your life! It's His like that is to be abundant in you. And in Him are all the promises as you'll seee as you keep reading here. Wow! Crank 'er up baby! Shift 'er into high!

John 7:38 "He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."

Romans 6:4, "...we also should walk in newness of life."

1Timothy 4:8 "...but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. "

John 5:40 "...come to me, that ye might have life."

Acts 5:20 "...to the people all the words of this life."

1John 5:12; John 5:24; John 17:3

The good things of life we like come from God -2Peter 1:3 "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life.....".God will make that which is true of us in the unseen realm true in the physical realm also. His promises are eternal, but that doesn't mean they start when we are in the resurrection--Psalms 27:13.

Hebrews 12:9 "Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence. Shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?".Original Greek for 'live' is 'actively blessed enjoying living'. The same original word is used in John 10:10 for the word 'life' above and here in Acts 17:28 "For in him we live and move and have our being, as certain also of your own poets have said. For we are also his offspring." 

Luke 6:38 "Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." 

1Timothy 6:17 ".....trust in the living God who gives us richly all things to enjoy." 

Ephesians 3:20 "Now unto him that is able to do.exceeding. abundantly-above-all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us." 

John 15:7 "If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done unto you."

Matthew 6:33 "Seek first the kingdom.(original Greek is 'royalty').of God and.His.righteousness and all these things.('shall' – not in original Greek).are added to you."
    Some people actually have their own righteousness, thinking that it's pleasing to God.

Anything wrong with being abundantly wealthy? Why do some people think that there is something wrong with prosperity when it's one of the very things God wants us to enjoy? God will give it to us when we're ready.
    But when is that? And, are we to take risks in 'getting there'?
Romans 11:36 "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to Whom be glory forever." 

1Timothy 4:8 ".....godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is-and of that which is to come." 

2Corinthians 1:20 "For all the promises of God in him are yes and in him Amen.(original, "so be it, in truth, verily"--or, it's for sure!), unto the glory of God by us."....continues
