Sorry, it isn’t a “wish” .. IT’S A PROMISE FROM GOD.

The Gospel is everything GOD guaranteed it would be.

There are thousands of PROMISES that GOD gave to the church .. but sadly a lot of churches preach that those promises are not for YOU, or not for TODAY. But .. they would both be wrong.

It’s really sad that you don’t believe that God loves you and He wants you to prosper and be in health. The way you do that is that you remind God of his Word (which He commanded you to do). Then, you say back to God - thank you Father that you have prospered me and I’m in good health; even if I can’t see it manifesting yet.

I dare you!

The promises are real. I have prosperity and an inheitance that is beyond riches. My bank account is bone dry.

Ask the Apostle Paul how his finances were as he finished his life in prison
Yet he claimed riches that are unbelievable as well.
Just not monetary.

Dietrich Bonhoefer ... died in a NAZI prison camp.

Prosperity gospel is for the snake oil salesmen and their followers. They KNOW who they are.

"Don't believe that God loves me"??......LOL........that's a bit of a stretch, isn't it?

So why did Jesus prophesy to Peter that he would die a martyr's death?

That's not very healthy and prosperous, is it?

What about the book of Revelation? It sounds like there's big trouble in store at some stage for Christians.

You sure we're reading the same Scriptures?

Allot of what you say are promises might be better understood as possibilities.

When John was deep in the dungeon of prison Jesus’s deciples told him about it, Jesus did not rescue him rather he told his deciples to...” go tell John “...you can read the rest. But Jesus did not go to him, nor rescue.

The point I’m making is Christ has never been a magic genie bottle you rub for Him to do your magic. There are certain things in life that are only learned by experience and sometimes we have to be in a dungeon or other difficult places in life. He will see us thru...but we do go thru.... Even His deciples were not men of wealth.
