A Monopoly on Blessing
“Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2)
If this scripture was written for the entire body of Christ, then why does one ethnic culture, which makes up only 2% of the American population, seem to have a monopoly on the blessing?
Forty percent of the top 40 Forbes 400 richest Americans are Jewish. One-third of American multimillionaires are Jewish. Twenty five percent of all American Nobel prize winners are Jewish. The list goes on and the Jewish people are consistently at the top in every category accept one; they’re at the bottom when it comes to poverty.
Now, we can resent this and blame Jewish people for the problems of the world. That’s called antisemitism, and is contrary to God’s ways, or we can learn from them. It’s not that Jewish people have a greater blessing from God, because by the blood of Messiah Jesus, we who are not natural-born Jews, are grafted into a better covenant and should be walking in a greater level of blessing. Yet this is not normally the case. Why not? What are the Jewish people doing that most other people aren’t doing?
The Jewish people know how to bless their children, and have been doing so for centuries. They have established and have simply been practicing God’s ways of blessing. I call them the Ancient Paths. They are available to all of us and they are tied directly to the prosperity of the soul (mind, will, and emotions). Blessing causes the soul to prosper. If you want prosperity and health, then you’ll have to learn about these ancient paths.
