“…ye believe in God, believe also in me” (John 14:1).

3) In contrast is the story of rich faithful man of God, Job. The devil was maniacally jealous of Job’s success even in the face of the reign of earthly Satanism. Job went through excruciating trials like none other in biblical accounts; yet he stuck, like the three Hebrew teenagers adamantly defied Nebuchadnezzar, to the LORD his God. After the trials Job was restored, becoming, probably, the richest on earth, where Lucifer prides himself as the god of its system. Job enjoyed his riches with no sorrow. In his majestic days Solomon was unarguably the number one richest person on the surface of the earth. He asked God for wisdom to rule successfully in the land of Israel. His prayer before the LORD God was not only answered, God told him in 1Kings 3:13, “And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.”
Lucifer lost this estate – of the light bearer
Another scriptural proof of his ownership of the world is in John 12:31 “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.” The word ‘prince’ is the Greek archōn (ar’-khone): ‘a first (in rank or power): ruler, commander, chief, leader.’ Satan did everything possible to scuttle divine mission of Jesus Christ. He failed woefully. John 14:30 “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
1Corinthians 10:20 “But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.” All those who visit fetish doctors for money ritualism do so at the peril of their souls. Ephesians 2:2 says, “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” pointing out that any alliance, in whatever guise, one enters into through secret societies or fetish people is in disobedience to the will of God.
Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” The entities mentioned above are actually demonic beings who front for the devil who cannot be present everywhere. Lucifer may be powerful, but, he is never a being of omnipresence. Demons are the idols present at all money ritualism. The Bible sees entities like the Greek Plutus or Lakshmi of India both of which are mythological deities of wealth, to be entities of Ephesians 6:12.
Let us go back to Philippians 4:19. The word ‘supply’ is plēroō (play-ro’-o) meaning: ‘To make full, to fill up, i.e. to fill to the full; To cause to abound, to furnish or supply liberally; I abound, I am liberally supplied; To render full, i.e. to complete; To fill to the top: so that nothing shall be wanting to full measure, fill to the brim.’ ‘Need’ is chreia (khri’-ah): ‘Necessity. Duty. Employment, that is, an affair; also (by implication) occasion, demand, requirement or destitution:’ so that if anyone will come to Jesus has been saved from the bedevilled cursed of impecuniosity. Amen.
You can be part of the winning Christianity of Jesus Christ. Get born again by saying this sinners’ prayer:
“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
