Wealth is also part of the seven aspects of our redemption inheritance. Jesus received them for us. That’s why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 8:9:

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

Redemption is the antidote to poverty because it allows you to access its remedy. At the moment of your salvation, you were redeemed from the scourge of poverty because your Father is very rich. Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you” (John 14:2). There are not houses in heaven, but mansions, palaces if you prefer. There are no servant quarters or bungalows, but palaces. This gives you an idea of the type of wealth you have inherited from your Father. They were once stolen from you. But Jesus came to restore them to you through His death and resurrection! But what must I do to be rich? Covenant practice is the answer! Wealth only responds to covenant practice. It is what makes one eligible for mastery of economic powers. Deuteronomy 8:18 says:

But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

It is covenant practice that makes you eligible for economic power. If you are not a covenant practitioner, you can live and die in a church without seeing a change in your financial status. This is because the Bible says, “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease” (Genesis 8:22). It is the same Bible that also says:

Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in his commands. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice. He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.” Psalm 112:1, 3, 5, 9

Solomon loved God so much that he gave Him his best. As a result, the covenant was established through this gift, and he supernaturally entered into a realm of inexplicable wealth. He gave, and heaven opened. If you give nothing, heaven will never open, despite your relationships. In fact, your “relationships” will always lead you to more frustrations.

Job also gave, and he became the greatest of all the men of the east. Being a covenant practitioner is the only way to enjoy wealth because all other avenues through which you acquire it are limited in time.
