Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo preached this message based oh his last book titled,
“33 IRREVOCABLE LAWS OF WEALTH CREATION”.
He explained that we are in a new season where God wants do something for the body of Christ so that we can influence our world effectively.
It is refreshing to know that God wants to raise men and women who will change their world and own the systems of the world.
One of the areas where God wants us to have dominion is the area of finance. This is because we need resources that will enable us to take possession of the world by His word.
It is also a season where God wants to transfer power to the body of Christ, release us from the challenges that hinders us from maximizing our potentials, and walk in the grace and favour of God.
SOME OF THE LAWS FOR WEALTH CREATION ARE:
1. THE LAW OF CREATIVE MENTORSHIP:
The master key to achieving success in any field is to study those who have creatively been successful in those fields.
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.
2 Timothy 2: 2
Creative mentorship implies that we do not have to invent or begin new ideas and rules in the area where others have been successful. What we need to do is to observe those who have done well in that chosen field and to allow their track record to mentor us.
“Mentorship makes somebody else’s sight to become another man’s foresight. Successful people tend to turn for help from those who have gone ahead of them”, he said.
2. THE LAW OF BURNING DESIRE:
The motivation to acquire wealth must be accompanied by a burning desire for wealth creation.
Also, a burning desire protects our mind in moments of discouragement. It enables us to face the challenges and obstacles which present themselves on a daily basis. Desire links us to the proof and result we desire.
It is worth noting that every time we speak negatively about wealth creation, we achieve the exact confession we make. We have to have a strong passion, a strong burning desire to be able to see results.
To achieve anything and to strengthen our burning desire, the wealth we want to create must first be seen in our mind.
Under the law of burning desire, there are three points to consider:
(A) SEE IT: Desire aids our perception. It also increases our capacity.
(B) SAY IT: “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible”.
Hebrews 11: 3
God says everything He wants to do. Once we confess it, we commit ourselves to the fulfillment and we engage our mind to make it become a reality.
(C) SOW IT: We must sow an action, money, talent or ability that will result in wealth creation.
Cast your bread upon the waters; for after many days you will find it again.
Ecclesiastes 11: 1
(3) THE LAW OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP: More people become wealthy by starting and building their own successful business than by all other ways on earth.
Entrepreneurship is a way of experiencing wealth creation.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.
Ecclesiastes 9: 10.
Entrepreneurship is born out of finding a need and fulfilling it. It is absolute mental laziness to think that there is no more business to pioneer or opportunities to exercise.
It is also not only fulfilling the need but satisfying it in a cost effective and profitable manner.
This is what the LORD says; your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
Isaiah 48: 17
(4) THE LAW OF THE BRAND: The brand represents an entity’s essential character, intergrity and accomplishment.
A good name opens doors, brings opportunity and allows us acceptance in circles we otherwise would not be able to penetrate. A good name also makes us an asset and an aid to our children in the future, not a liability that will drag them down.
“Our children also must understand that the name they carry is a brand. A good name is marketable and our name is much more than a label distinguishing us from other people. It is the whole of the service and what we represent”.
Finally, we must create wealth and we must also become the kind of brand that is endearing to people, the brand they cannot miss and the one they always want.
We don’t have to be everything everyone else, but rather strive to establish a good brand because there is power in it.
