Prosperity X’s Soul equals: Peace August 5
III John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
What a beautiful greeting. It would be nice if we did this whenever we ran into a friend. Sometimes friends, with their greetings, will almost pronounce a curse on the very people they love and us.
John is stating this to one of his pastors, Gaius, leading a church and having some trouble with another church pastor, Diotrephes, who beheld a false doctrine. People like this can be very stressful to deal with, and John let him know he would deal with Diotrephes when he arrived.
Gaius cherished this letter commissioned by the Holy Spirit and penned it by the hand of John. Gaius cared for it and preserved it for posterity. I wonder how many times he thought about this scripture?
There’s one word in this verse that can provoke deep thoughts, soul.
But what did the Holy Spirit mean by this? There’re two schools of thought. One: that the soul is life, your inner spirit, and secondly, your conscience, your mind, your thoughts.
Let’s look at it this way, without your mind; you are dead. Without your spirit, your body is over, so we need the presence of both.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
The more you read your bible, the more your spirit grows into the truth of God. This self-education will bring you prosperity which means success.
Training your soul, mind, and spirit with the Holy Spirit, that’s true prosperity.
He is: Jehova Shalom
The Lord is Peace
