I live in Zimbabwe and this question is asked by all and all have answers. I believe this is a universal question and people have answers to it anywhere in the world.I will only give what i think are the top two popular answers in the Zimbabwean context. My main aim is to help my brothers and sisters in the church to know the truth.
1. Visit a sangoma and get juju: its sad some brothers and sisters believe this. There is no one with supernatural powers to make you rich. There are several superstitions; the popular one is a snake that vomits money. Wake up brothers and sisters there is no such thing.
2. Go to church: with the increase of false prophets like Eubert Angel (of the miracle money fame) and Makandiwa and many more who know how to be rich using the bible: twisting some scriptures to make people believe that they will be rich by becoming Christians. There are a lot of people preaching the “prosperity gospel” sadly we have such in the Church too. Many have left the Church because they thought Christian is synonymus to rich.
I do not have all answers to the question, but i know proverbs does have great principles and i know many Christians do not want to hear them because they want easy things or they don’t want truth.
“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; Consider her ways, and be wise:
7 Which having no chief, Overseer, or ruler,
8 Provideth her bread in the summer, And gathereth her food in the harvest.
9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep:
11 So shall thy poverty come as a robber, And thy want as an armed man.”
Gods word is teaching work here like many scriptures. I am yet to meet someone who is rich and doesn’t work. If you know of any person Luke that share with me, this principle of work is universal and God made it so.
What do you think.
