“....Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
Revelation 5:12 NKJV.
As Christians, we must get accustomed to see or visualize Jesus in His resurrected state. Jesus enthroned is not the same as the Jesus who hung on the cross. It is the same person but completely different degrees of glory or status.
When you see Jesus as that man who was acquainted with grief, who had no form or comeliness, no beauty that people should desire Him. That man who was despised by man died on the cross. The man who rose from the dead is crowned with glory and honor.
The second crown in our study is riches.
Jesus is Lord over wealth. Money and material possessions answer to Him. People who say Christianity is synonymous with poverty think less of Jesus. He became poor for us, emptied Himself of the privileges of Deity and became human so that He could take our place of capital punishment. But God raised Him back to life and gave Him power over all riches including those in secret places.
You should never again accept poverty in your christian life. Jesus became poor so that through His poverty you might become rich. You have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies. There is nothing on this earth that is too good for you.
You deserve the best because of Christ in you. Poverty mentality is far removed from humility. The life of Christ in you attracts every good thing and every good happening in your life. Riches of the universe don't belong to satan, they were given to Jesus. He reigns over wealth and that's why it's pointless for a Christian to be covetous, greedy or serve money.
The life of Christ in me attracts everything good. Poverty and lack is not my portion for the Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not lack.
