Righteousness Brings Wealth

20 I walk in righteousness, in paths of justice.
21 Those who love me inherit wealth. I will fill their treasuries.
Proverbs 8:20-21 (NLT)

The theme for this article is righteousness. This term has been widely used in churches including religious churches that are under the bondage of theology. I was familiar of this term when I was in my previous religious church. The religious preachers of my first church had given me the impression that righteousness means obeying God. (To those who had never been to religious churches, the phase “obey God” always means obey everything the preachers said.)

It should not surprise you that I hated righteousness. I thought it was another oppressive tool for the preachers to promote missions and squeeze money from their congregation.

I thank God for delivering me from the lies of theology. Today, I understand that righteousness means being right with God and I am righteous by faith and not by obeying the lies of theology.

16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.
17 This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”
Romans 1:16-17 (NLT)

This means as Christians, we do not try to be righteous. We are righteous the moment we believe. Nothing and no one can change this truth, including the most perverse of all theologians. Righteousness is our natural state the moment we were born again into God’s species.

Proverbs 8:20-21 tells us the relationship between righteousness and wisdom. Since righteousness is our natural state, it is wise for us to walk in it. It is like birds flying in the air and fishes swimming in the water. All creatures can live in their best prosperity when they are in their natural state. This is the same for us, the sons and daughters of God. We can live in the best state of prosperity when we walk in righteousness, as stared in Proverbs 8:20-21.

20 I walk in righteousness, in paths of justice.
21 Those who love me inherit wealth. I will fill their treasuries.
Proverbs 8:20-21 (NLT)

The wisdom of God walks righteousness, in paths of justice. Those of us who choose to love wisdom will do the same. As a result, we will inherit wealth. Our treasuries will be filled. Some may ask what kind of wealth? Theologians and doctrine worshippers have the habit of adding the word “spiritual” to every promise on health and wealth in the Bible. This is the way they propagate the lie that God never promised health and wealth to Christians. However, if you read the entire Psalm 8, you will find that the context of wealth is physical assets.

This means living in righteousness will always bring us wealth, true physical wealth like having a lot money. This is the truth that Satan fears the most. This explains why he has been sending his theologians and doctrine worshippers to persecute Christians who believe in this truth.

There is no escape. If you are a Christian who believe in the truth of the Bible, you will be persecuted by the theologians and doctrine worshippers with labels like “Prosperity Gospel”. This is only a sign that you are on the right path. You are living the life God wants you to live. The result is prosperity in every area of your life, including health and wealth, both spiritually and physically.

In conclusion, “righteousness” is not an oppressive word nor is it a dirty word. It our natural state as sons and daughters of God. Through righteousness, we are in position to receive prosperity in every area of our lives, including the area that is dreaded by the Theologian (also known as Satan) – lots of money.
