Attracting Abundance – 4 Keys Open Treasures of Supernatural Prosperity!
Stop Chasing and Start Attracting Abundance
If you want to be a channel for God’s prosperity,
then stop chasing after it and start attracting it,
by applying God’s “mysterious” laws of multiplication.
How do you attract it?
Through calculated laws of giving.
Certain laws of abundance can be applied to our lives. Stop chasing after the harvest and start attracting it by putting the laws of the harvest into motion through giving.
4 Keys Help Open Treasures of Supernatural Prosperity:
1. Giving Manifests What You Give
The first key to attracting supernatural prosperity is understanding that you reap what you sow. Like produces like, and you only reap the kind of crop you plant. If you apply this law to your giving, you’ll find that giving produces what you give.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
— Galatians 6:7
Plant wheat, and get wheat. Plant love, and reap love. Give time, and reap time. If you give money, you can expect a financial blessing. God says, “Give, and it shall be given unto you…”
2. Reap More Than You Sow
The second law of harvest is that each seed planted, always multiplies itself. One bushel of wheat planted can bring a harvest of 25-40 bushels. Consider what a single seed of corn will produce?
The key here is that seed sown multiplies. Plant one seed and get more back. John 12:24 tells us a planted corn of wheat brings forth much fruit.
When giving to God, you can expect to receive more than the seed gift given.
“Give, and it will be given to you:
good measure, pressed down, shaken together,
and running over will be put into your bosom.”
— Luke 6:38
3. The Measure You Give is the Measure You Manifest
This third law is this: You always reap in proportion to how much you sow. If you sow a few seeds, you can’t expect an abundant harvest. Stinginess may lead to poverty, but generosity leads to prosperity.
“A generous soul is made rich.”
— Proverbs 11:25
The more you give the more you will receive, and it will be measured back to you in the same measure that you gave. (Luke 6:38b) Give by the cupful, and it will come back to you by the cupful. Give by the truckload, and it will come back to you by the truckload.
4. Remain Faithful Until Harvest Time
There is a season to sow and a season to reap. In the meantime, planted seeds need to be cared for. This law of the harvest says you must remain faithful to the crop in order to receive an abundant harvest.
A farmer doesn’t plant one week and expect a harvest the next. They reap in a different season than they sow. They understand there is seed sowing, then time, then harvest.
Giving is not finished after planting the seeds. The key is to give faithful time and effort to cultivate the field; then when the harvest comes it will be abundant. Seeds tended to and cared for produce abundance.
After giving of time, love, money, etcetera, we must continue to faithfully pray and confess God’s Word until the harvest is manifested.
Keep in mind: Regardless of prior year harvests, what happens in the future depends upon the seeds you sow now – today! Every day you miss sowing is a day you miss harvesting.
Giving to God is the key to opening the treasures of supernatural prosperity. And this will help appropriate God’s richest blessings in every part of your life.
Want to be a channel for God’s prosperity? Then get started today with a determined plan of giving. Remember you need to sow now in order to reap later. Put these four keys of giving to work and open the treasures of the never ending supply of God’s supernatural prosperity.
May your generous, abundant giving make you a channel for God’s supernatural prosperity and fill your life with growing prosperity!

“The Path To Wealth” by TS Linscott
The Path To Wealth Book Review
by T.S. Linscott
This book was first published in 1888 with the complete title:
“The Path to Wealth; or, Light From My Forge.”
Revealed within the pages of this
valuable book you’ll find powerful,
timeless teachings regarding God’s money laws…
- A DISCUSSION OF GOD’S MONEY LAWS
- THE RELATION BETWEEN GIVING AND GETTING
- CASH AND CHRISTIANITY
The teachings in this book are provided in a series of ‘talks’ that take place in a blacksmith shop over 100 years ago. The discussions include important insights into monetary principles from God’s Word; which continue to reveal to us today How to Acquire Wealth and Have Financial Success!
In this wealth and financial success book, author T.S. Linscott, shares the dynamic tithing truths that have helped thousands of others discover the ‘secret’ of supernatural growing prosperity.
The following is an excerpt from pages 80-81 of “The Path To Wealth”:
“A good deal of our preaching, our thinking, and even our devotions, either vaporize or spiritualize God’s promises. Our natural unbelief tends to put off the fulfillment of them until we get to heaven or sometime in the future. Unbelief hates literal and present tense promises. But these promises are literal and material; they are for here and now; they are to be enjoyed on earth; they challenge us to a contract or bargain with God.
As stated before, He promises money for money; you pay me a tenth, says God, and I will give you earthly and material blessings. I will give your fingers skill as mechanics; I will incline employers toward you; you shall get the highest wages; strikes shall not affect you; I am with you, and will see that you are provided for.
I will make you prosperous as businessmen; I will incline you where you can make good bargains; I will send the people around to you to buy; while the man next door, who neglects My cause may become bankrupt, this curse shall not touch you. I will look out for your bills when they are coming due; I will see that your bank account is sufficiently large; in a word, I am your partner and will look out for the interests of your business.
And to you thinkers, who earn your living by your brains, I will make your thoughts clear; I will give you the holy impulse to originate ‘thoughts which breathe, and words which burn;’ your productions shall stir men’s hearts; your works shall be in demand; I will make people buy the productions of your heart and brain; only pay me your tenth, and you shall be cared for.
Seed time and harvest shall never fail you farmers; I will bless your crop; I will multiply your stock; the blight and the mildew shall be kept from your farms; remember, I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; I will do to you as I did to them, only remember me as they did.
I will give health to all of you; death shall not take away your little ones; they shall live to a ripe old age; I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
These are the blessings promised by God in the Bible. Who among this company will this day pledge his tenth to God?” (end of excerpt)
“Are You Tired of Going in Circles Where Your Finances are Concerned?”
In days of economic uncertainty, it is important for everyone to get a working knowledge of truth to prosper.
You can prosper by using God’s spiritual principles in your finances!
The source of all financial abundance is God and with Him there are no limits. Trouble is, too many people are slow to learn the principles that will cause them to excel financially.
Get your thinking clear on how to work them and you’ll no longer use words like recession, poverty, and lack.
In order to receive financial abundance from God, we must do our part. If we do our part, He’ll do His part and meet our needs according to His riches in glory.
Most people don’t like to hear about tithing and it puts them in fear. But you’ll have no problem tithing if you see God as your source of supply.
The tithe is seed money of wealth and is compared to sowing. The more a person gives, the more that person receives. Financial prosperity is one benefit of tithing. It puts us in partnership with God.
We are told to bring the tithes into God’s house and then test Him and see if He does not open the windows of heaven and pour out such a blessing on us that we don’t have room enough to contain it! (Malachi 3:10)
Tithing is a step of obedience and trust that God will take care of our finances. God promises to pour out a blessing to the tither.
I truly believe tithing is a key to living a godly, successful, and prosperous Christian life.
“The Path to Wealth” book has been republished and is now easily available in an affordable print version.
In it many of the common questions people have about tithing are addressed and answered, such as:
- Is Tithing Still For Us Today?
- Who Should Tithe?
- Is a Person In Debt Obligated to Tithe?
- If God is the Source of All Supply, Why Does He Need My Money?
- Where Should the Tithe Be Given?
- How is the Tithe Calculated?
In “The Path to Wealth”, Linscott also points out many of the biblical advantages of tithing.
God put it on my heart almost two years ago to republish this book, and it is my earnest wish and prayer, just as it was of the original author, that this book may be productive of good, and lead many a person to ‘bring all the tithes into the storehouse’ in response to the demand of God.
“Where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”
— Luke 12:34

Live to Give – Do You Understand this Secret for Abundant Living and Growing Prosperity?
The Art of Giving is a Secret for Abundant Living!
One of the main ‘secrets’ of abundant living is:
The art of giving.
Don’t let a spirit of fear prevent you…
from giving and keep you in lack.
But if I Give I’ll Have Less
Unfortunately, a common belief many people have is that giving a portion of what they have will result in having less. Bear in mind, this belief causes many folks to live in fear of giving, and a lack of giving in turn prevents the flow of abundance in a person’s life.
Okay, okay. I hear you saying, “But, wait a minute. If I have 20 dollars and I give away 10, now I only have 10.”
Yes, this is true. In the natural 20 minus 10 equals 10, so in the short-term we may seem to have less. This is the same as a farmer who after planting his seed may seem to have less.
But bear with me a little longer; because, giving is a spiritual principle and it has the ability to change our spiritual and natural situation. When we give we are like the farmer who plants and tends his seed; then after some time receives his harvest.
“Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you give it shall be measured back to you.”
— Luke 6:38
The More You Give, The More You Have
The paradox of life is that the more you give, the more you have. We see this explained in the previously quoted verse. This verse gives an image of super-abundance. We can open a floodgate of blessings into our lives by giving to others freely.
The thing is, when we give money, forgiveness, love, etc., it opens spiritual channels that set in motion a movement of abundance that circulates around and comes back to us in profound and indirect ways.
Giving is like planting seeds. We have to actually plant the seeds if we expect to receive a harvest. And if we plant a small amount, we receive a small harvest; plant a large amount and we receive a large harvest.
Give Abundantly and Live Abundantly
We can give abundantly and live abundantly. Remember also, that you are rich in the respect that you have a spirit that is inexhaustible. So let no mean attitude or selfish thought keep you from sharing this spirit. Be a generous giver at heart and in all you do.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
— Winston Churchill
Mark my words: Life will take on a whole new meaning for you as you live to give. Give and keep giving. Give from the heart; of your time, money, comfort, and resources. Then don’t be surprised as you begin to live abundantly.
May you live to give and learn this secret for abundant living and growing prosperity!

Dave Ramsey on Holiday Shopping – 4 Tips to Celebrate Debt Free
Why Go Into Debt to Celebrate?
If the holidays are supposed to be the happiest time of the year, why does it often seem like the most stressful time of the year?
Financial stress is at the top of many people’s list this time of year.
Many folks just don’t have extra money available to do all the celebrating and shopping they desire. Yet the world puts the pressure on to buy more and keep up with Joneses; even if it means going into debt. Throwing it all on the credit card seems to be the solution.
Although after the New Year, the bills start coming in and the struggle just to pay the minimum payments begin. The struggle to get the debt paid off can go on late into the year or longer. And that only adds to the stress the following holiday season. So instead of planning and enjoying the new season, there still remains the hassle of left-over debt and the stress that goes with it.
Are you ready to end the cycle and say no more debt, no more credit? Then it is time to make a plan early in the year and stick to it so you can avoid piling up mounds of debt on credit cards.
Dave Ramsey provides the following holiday shopping ideas and tips for celebrating debt free this year:
Look for deals online before heading to the stores. Find out what the prices are at the stores you plan to visit and don’t waste your time shopping at one if you know another store down the street has a better deal.
2. MAKE A BUDGET
It’s common sense stuff, but amazing how many people have no financial plan for their spending. And when they go shopping they are like kids in a toy store buying the first flashy toy that catches their eye.
If you plan to work your way out of debt, it requires becoming disciplined during the holiday season. If you must buy for many, keep it simple and stay within your means. Don’t get caught up in the mindset that bigger is better or it will just come back to bite you when the bills start coming in after the new year.
3. USE CASH
As Dave always says, you spend less when you use cash. So stop by the bank or ATM to get your pre-planned amount of shopping cash before you hit the stores. And when it’s gone it’s time to stop shopping.
If you’ve planned ahead and followed the previous two steps then using cash should be easy. You will know what you need to buy and how much it will cost before you start. Planning time well spent!
4. START NOW – PLAN EARLY
If you haven’t made a plan this holiday season, then stop now and take some time to evaluate your situation and make a budget. Look at the big picture and consider the outcome of your choices this holiday season. Shop smart and keep it within your means.
And if this holiday season caught you off guard once again, well remember, it is never too late to try again. Next year you can make better decisions and do things differently.
Happy Holidays to All & a Very Merry Christmas!
God bless you,

Manifesting Abundance – The Power of Changing Your Thinking to Manifest Money!
Your Thoughts and Beliefs Hold Great Power to Manifest Money!
requires managing your thinking.
Make no mistake about it;
there is great power in thoughts and beliefs.
So what thoughts and beliefs do you currently hold about money?
Common Negative Thoughts About Money
- It is not good to have a lot of money.
- Rich people really aren’t happy.
- Money isn’t everything and I don’t care about money.
- Money isn’t important.
People who say these things might not care about money, but you can be sure that the landlord does, and the banker, the car dealer, the utility company, etc. A common misconception regarding money relates to its importance. Truth is, who can deny how important money is to any person living in a civilized society and using it as their currency.
Money has a greater influence in our lives than almost any other commodity. It is one of the most talked about subjects in the Bible. Consider how a sudden loss or gain of money affects a person’s attitude to a great extent.
I think you would agree that we all should have a practical understanding of exactly what money is and the laws governing its manifestation. This one individual area of study will not only affect your own life, but the lives of those around you.
Out with the Negative and In with the Positive Money Thoughts
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. Yet many people fool themselves into believing they are thinking, when often they are just replaying old movies in their mind. It is important to take notice of this and begin choosing your thoughts and developing a prosperity conscious mindset.
Mental awareness of prosperity always precedes manifested wealth. Thoughts will create ideas, which will help you create a plan of action to then go do those things, and put yourself in the position to manifest more money.
“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” — Romans 12:2
Think of children born into prosperous families; they have been conditioned from birth to be prosperity conscious and think prosperous thoughts. These children only see themselves surrounded by wealth, and they in turn play that out in their adult life with their choices of careers, like minded spouses, and lifestyles. It’s as if they feel it is their birth right and they don’t even entertain thoughts of poverty and lack. Any setbacks are only temporary because they are prosperity conscious.
Unfortunately, the majority of people have not been born into that kind of environment and raised to have a prosperity mindset. The opposite is too often the case and living in a poor environment with poor thinking and poor conversations is the norm.
Anyone can change their way of thinking. It is not always easy, and takes a desire to do so and a lot of effort. But the results from the effort will be well worth it.
Lack and limitation only exists when we give it room in our minds. Opening our minds to prosperity consciousness helps us see money as an obedient servant that we are master over, and that we can tap into unlimited earnings potential.
Remember, that we must have something mentally before we have it physically. So let’s make those private thoughts and conversations in our minds be wealth conscious, and move us to a higher potential.
You can begin to positively affirm:
- I am prosperous and wealthy.
- Money is good and I am blessed to be a blessing.
Just think about it. God created this world full of abundance and has given each of us talents and abilities, far surpassing what we use. With God’s help we have what it takes to be a success. With God there is no lack and He gave us the ability to think. So why not start to penetrate the world of wealth today by using the power of thought to manifest money.
May you use the power of thought to create a life of growing prosperity!

Growing Prosperity – Get Yourself Prepared to Prosper!
Grow Financially as You Grow Spiritually
a process that…
requires starting at the beginning.
This means we have to prepare to prosper.
First we have to lay the foundation…
and then build on it.
Build a Strong Foundation to Prosper
Think about it. You would never try to build a house without first laying a foundation. It doesn’t matter how excited you are to finish the house so you can buy furniture and decorate, you must take time to put down a solid foundation first. Otherwise, you’ll soon find you’re living in a house so unstable, it comes tumbling down.
Now, that’s simple advice, isn’t it? Anyone with a little common sense knows it.
Yet why is it then, that in the spiritual realm, people make that mistake over and over?
We so often get excited when we see a blessing God has promised us in His Word. And we are so eager to have it, that we can find ourselves ignoring the foundational basics of godly living and pursue just that one thing.
This seems to be especially true in the area of prosperity. Out of desperation for a quick financial fix, people often pull a few prosperity promises out of the Bible and try to believe them, but without allowing God to change anything else in their lives.
Then of course, when it doesn’t work, those same people end up disappointed. And many will also then come to the conclusion that it just wasn’t God’s will for them to prosper.
Grow Financially as You Grow Spiritually
In preparing to prosper we need to come to the understanding that it is God’s will for all of His children to prosper.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.” — 3 John 2
Notice that this verse doesn’t just say ‘I want you to prosper.’ But it says, ‘I want you to prosper as your soul prospers.’ Financial prosperity is tied to the prosperity of our mind, will, and emotions.
We grow financially as we grow spiritually. How can we expect to handle financial prosperity without being spiritually mature? God knows how dangerous it is to put great wealth into the hands of someone who is too spiritually immature to handle it.
“The Prosperity of fools shall destroy them.” — Proverbs 1:32
You don’t have to look far to see evidence of that fact in the lives of people who have acquired financial riches apart from God and His ways. Most of the time, such riches just help people die younger and in more misery than they would have if they had been poor.
Why? Because they use their wealth to sin in greater measure. They often use their money to buy illegal and addictive substances and pay for an immoral lifestyle that eventually destroys them. So, when people gain wealth and use it to sin, it results in doing them more harm than good.
In light of this, it’s easy to see why God wants us to increase financially as we increase spiritually. In order for our prosperity to bring us blessing and not harm, we need to outgrow our fleshly foolishness.
Get Busy Growing and Prosper
“Okay, okay,” you say, “But I need financial help fast!”
Then quickly get busy growing and building your foundation for prosperity.
How? By finding out what God says in His Word and doing it. You see, the foundation of prosperity is a continual lifestyle built on the Word of God. It is doing, thinking, and saying what His Word says.
Financial miracles and breakthroughs can happen at any time, but that doesn’t mean we stop growing spiritually and building on the foundation. Godly prosperity is the result of putting God’s Word, all of it, not just the parts about financial prosperity, first place in life.
Make no mistake about it: Growing prosperity continues when we apply these principles on a daily basis and not just because we want money. We always put ourselves in position for increase when we seek after God and do things His way. Go now and build your foundation, continue to grow spiritually, dare to believe, and you will surely prosper.
May you get yourself prepared to prosper and live a life of growing prosperity!

Growing Prosperity – Why Limit Prosperity to Only One Area of Your Life?
Would You Like to Successfully Prosper in More Areas of Your Life?
Do you limit it to only one?
Many people find they limit prosperity to only one or two areas because they are diligent in only those areas.
For example, some are successful in the area of healing and walking in divine health, but fail when it comes to financial prosperity.
Why does this happen? The answer given to this question is often that it must not be God’s will that a person be prosperous or healed.
Knowledge of God’s Willingness to Prosper
It is key that we have the knowledge of God’s willingness to prosper us.
“Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” — 2 Peter 1:2
We are often like the leper in the first chapter of Mark that knows God is able, but questions whether or not He is willing. But Jesus answered the man’s question saying, “I will” and then healing power flowed into the leper’s life.
Does God want us poor? We need to answer the poverty question if we want to see prosperity come.
We need to know God will and not doubt about His willingness. God’s willingness and prosperity is multiplied to us through the knowledge of God. As we gain the knowledge of God, we gain faith in that knowledge, and in turn see grace multiplied to us.
Get a Healthy Attitude Toward Prosperity In Every Area
If we spend our time with a focus on healing, we will enjoy prosperous health. But then we might struggle to prosper financially. It is important to find a balance.
Our thinking and believing needs to line up with the Word of God, rather than letting preconceived ideas rule that may be contrary to God’s will. If a person believes that it is a sin to have money or live in a nice house, they will have contrary thoughts and attitudes that prevent growing prosperity.
If our mind is not prosperous in a certain area, then usually we will not prosper in that area. If it is the area of finances, then we may not give much because we don’t believe God wants us to have anything. Then because we never believe for a return, even if it comes, we miss it. To reap a financial harvest, it takes a prosperous attitude.
We can prosper in even the little things in life. When we meditate on the Word of God daily, renew our minds, and purpose to live in line with His will, God says, “Whatever you do shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:3)
Make no mistake about it: God is willing to use His power and ability to prosper us. His peace is multiplied to us through the knowledge of God. Peace is prosperity because it joins us together as one with Jesus, and that is prosperity any way you look at it.
May you gain the knowledge of God’s willingness to fill your life with growing prosperity!
