Why does the Church Keep saying Jesus was Poor?

11 March 2017, Written by Nigel Maine, Posted in Business, Hits 321

If Jesus wasn't poor, what else have we got wrong about the bible?

Why does the Church Keep saying Jesus was Poor?

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

This statement is not referring to Jesus being poor.  In fact, he was a craftsman and small businessman before he started His Ministry.  Jesus became poor and took on the curse of poverty when He was crucified on the cross, so that we might become rich both financially and spiritually.  In 2 Corinthians 9:8 it says And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Jeremiah 29:11 says I know the plans I have you, plans for future and a hope

What Has God Got Planned For You?

January is a month for articles like this that seemed to create thoughts of what might be. Will this be a year everything goes right? Yet still we are led to think that we have to wait on God. However, perhaps this might change your mind?:

  • Philippians 2:13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and power to do what pleases him

Congregations need to be taught about prosperity but the church is too afraid to teach on it

The Church and The Poverty Mentality Cycle

I have recently become very interested in the sermons that churches deliver on a Sunday morning that affect business people and the congregations in general.  One particular area is that of our financial Christian lives and how we exist day-to-day.

Setting Out The Battle Lines to Reclaim Our Inheritance

28 February 2017, Written by Nigel Maine, Posted in God, Faith & Miracles, Business, Hits 802

It's time to change our approach to business and help our colleagues understand what God has got planned for us

Setting Out The Battle Lines to Reclaim Our Inheritance

The Standard has been set up as a framework to provide support and encouragement to people who own their own businesses.

We are encouraging businesses everywhere to grasp what God has got planned for our lives as business owners.  The Bible is full of promises, however, because we fail act, these promises will not come to pass.

God wants us to prosper.  He wants us to succeed, yet we keep allowing the father of lies to steal our inheritance - that's satan for anyone who doesn't know.
