What is it?
The word survivalist means someone who tries to insure their personal survival or the survival of their group or nation.
One who survives...
Why as Christians do we tend to live like this? GOD through HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST, has given us the keys to the Heaven and earth. (Matthew 16:19) He gave them to us when JESUS died, went to hell, took the keys back from the devil!!! (Rev. 1:18) So why do we tend to live like we are poor, that we lack, that we don't have enough?
Every time we say,
"Oh I don't have enough money for that"
"We are too poor"
"I can't pay my bills"
"I can't buy groceries, gas...
EVEN if that all is true, why say it out loud? Life and death are in the power of the tongue!!! (Proverbs 18:21) All you do when you speak those things is create death over yourself, over your finances!!! Start speaking life into your finances!!! Start speaking GOD's WORD, HIS TRUTH over your finances!!! Every time that liar, the devil, says you won't have, you can't have, etc...you remind him of GOD's WORD...you learn those verses, you say them out loud, you keep saying them!!!! You say them out loud so that you hear yourself say them because "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the WORD of GOD!" (Romans 10:17)
Here's some verses to encourage:
Philipians 4:19 "But my GOD shall supply all your need according to HIS riches in glory by CHRIST JESUS"
3 John 2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth"
Psalm 37:25 "I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread."
Psalm 34:10 "The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing."
Psalm 23:1 "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want."
Deuteronomy 28:2-8 "And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."
Deuteronomy 28:11-13 "And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:"
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."
I Corinthians 16:2 "Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come"
Malachi 3:10-12"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts."
II Corinthians 9:6-8 "But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:"
Matthew 6:31-33 "Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Blessings until next time!
