Beloved, My desire is that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. For I was very glad when brethren came and testified to your truth, that is, how you are walking in truth. I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth. 3 John 1:2-4.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

I desire that all people be saved and come to know the truth, but I desire that not just so you can be with Me forever in My Kingdom, but so you can also enjoy the glorious freedom of My children now and not just when Jesus returns.

For if you continue (abide, remain) in My Word, you are truly My disciples and then you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free to prosper and be in good health in ALL aspects of your life. But you will only continually walk in prosperity and good health if your soul is prospering, and your soul only prospers if you are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:2-4.

And no matter how you define truth, the only absolute truth is found in My Word. I made, sustain, and change everything only by My Word. My Words are Spirit and life, they are the Words of eternal life. They are not idle words but your very life. They are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. They give seed to the sower and bread to the eater.

I watch over My Words to perform them and you do not return them to Me void if you return them with faith. My holy angels, the Host, also obey the voice of My Word. My Word created and holds the entire universe together. I am My Word. And Jesus is My Word manifested in the flesh, living and working.

I have joy when you, My beloved children, are walking in the truth. Because then I know that what is working on the inside making a prosperous soul will work out into the physical and material realm, that is, every area of your life and your life will become a joyful journey, the highway of holiness upon which the redeemed walk.

So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for good. Philippians 2:12.

Prosperity within your soul becomes a magnet drawing in good things so that they are added to you. Faith is like a magnet drawing in good things that you are believing for. Fear is a magnet drawing in what you are fearing.

“For what I fear comes upon me, and what I dread befalls me. I am not at ease, nor am I quiet, and I am not at rest, but turmoil comes.” Job 3:25-26.

The goal of your salvation in Christ, your new birth as a new creation, is that you be prosperous and healthy, filled with joy and confidence, now and forever. It is the goal of Kingdom citizenship, sonship as My children, fellowship, partnership, and Covenant relationship. This results in dominion, prosperity, and fruitfulness that matures in understanding our Covenant relationship and My love for you as manifested in Jesus.

And this was My intention for your life from the beginning. I KNOW the plans I have for you, plans for your SHALOM (prosperity, health, peace, and goodness in every area of your life) and NOT evil, to give you a sure and confident hope that goes beyond the veil. When I made man and woman I blessed them to be fruitful, prosperous, healthy, and wise, giving them dominion over the earth and the works of My hands thereupon.

Not just authority but dominion. You are to be directing what happens in the earth, not Satan.

What is a prosperous soul? Your soul consists of your mind, your will, and your emotions. Your soul is where decisions regarding your life are formed, what you think upon, believe, speak and do. And your mind, which shapes your will, is either receiving input from your spirit or from your flesh.

Be careful what you hear. Faith friends are important.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25.

If you have not been born again by receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior, your mind is receiving input from your flesh. This is because when Adam sinned against My Word and submitted to the works of the devil, he was born again by the word of the devil and his spirit died to Me and came alive to sin; that is, to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the boastful pride of life. It is all about self. And you are headed to eternal death of body, soul, and spirit.

The flesh cannot understand spiritual things and does not hear from Me, the flesh only inputs what it sees, hears, and feels by the five physical senses. You can go to a high level of worldly wisdom and analytical skills in the flesh alone, I made you awesome, but there comes a point, like Pharaoh’s magicians and sorcerers, where the flesh and the demons that control many people’s flesh, cannot go that high. The devil cannot defeat you in the spirit realm but only in the flesh realm, as he did Adam and Eve.

When Jesus spoke of the eye as the lamp of your body, He was speaking of your mind. You know this because He said that if your eye is good (in Greek the word is haploús, which means unfolded, single – literally, bmeaning that you have an undivided focus which is the antonym of the Greek term diplous meaning, “double,”) then your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is evil your whole body will be full of darkness. Matthew 6:22-23. And then He cautions you to watch out that the light in you is not darkness. Luke 11:35.

And now look at a passage from the second letter to the Corinthians that will define this further, “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4.

By My Spirit My servant Paul states that Satan has blinded the MINDS of the unbelieving so that the cannot SEE THE LIGHT of the gospel of the glory of Christ. Nóēma is the word used in Greek that is translated “mind,” it is derived from “noieo,” which means “to exert mental effort,” that is, the mind, especially its final output and adding the “ma,” suffix, (noema), underlines the result of the thinking—the personal verdict that comes out of using the mind.

“Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays.” Luke 11:35-36.

This passage also shows you that you have a choice on whether you are letting in light or darkness. And what do I tell you about My Word? The UNFOLDING (in the Hebrew of the Old Testament, the word is “pethach,” meaning “an opening, unfolding”) of My Word gives light, it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130. To those who are open and not double minded, clear and simple. I also tell you that My Word is a light to your path and a lamp to your feet. On the journey of your life.

Beloved, My desire is that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. For I was very glad when brethren came and testified to your truth, that is, how you are walking in truth. I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth. 3 John 1:2-4.

This is a passage that was first written in Greek being in the New Testament. So let us look there for a deeper understanding of it so that you can walk in it.

My desire for you is that “in all respects you may prosper,” stop there a moment. The words translated “in all respects” are the Greek words “peri” and “pas.” Perí is a preposition, meaning all-around (on every side); hence encompassing, where all the bases are covered. Perí is often translated “concerning” (“all about”). Peri is the root of the English term, “perimeter.” The other word “pás,” means “all” in the since that it signifies each and every part of a totality that forms the whole. You are surrounded by the shield of My good Will towards you. My plans of shalom and not evil. Of being encompassed round like a hedge with My favor on your journey through life.

And the word used in this passage for “prosper,” is the Greek word “euodoó,” which means to have a prosperous journey. Euodóō is from “eú,” meaning “well, good,” and “hodós,” meaning “a journey on a particular road.” Essentially that t go on a prosperous journey you must be on the right (profitable) path leading to real success (good fortune) where you truly prospers and are prospered.

You are My masterpiece created a new in Christ Jesus for good works that I have prepared in advance that you should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10. And it is on this path that you will have a prosperous journey. And how do you get on this prosperous journey and have eyes that see the light for the path? The ones who not only hear but receive My implanted Word, the perfect law of liberty (that sets you free) which has the power to SAVE YOUR SOULS.

Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the Word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the Word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves . . . But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does. James 1:25.

You prosper by walking in the truth. And here is how you walk, putting aside (casting down and taking captive) words of darkness, that is, fear, deceit, malice, filthiness, and all that remains of wickedness, and speaking the truth in love as you renew your MIND by My Word and are thus transformed once again into My image and according to My likeness.

Therefore, put aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of My Word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation and all that goes with it, if you have tasted My goodness and loving kindness. 1 Peter 2:1-3.

You taste My Words as you eat them and grow thereby. For the ear tests words as the palate tastes food. Job 34:3; Job 12:11. Taste and see My goodness. Psalm 34:8. How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!  Psalm 119:103. My Words are sweeter than honey dripping from the comb. Psalm 19:10. When My Words were found, Jeremiah devoured them, they became the joy and treasure of his heart. I had made him to be a prophet to the nations and a light to My people, and I simply told him to separate the profane from the pure and speak only the pure.

The words of the LORD are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times. Psalm 12:6.

How do you keep your way pure? By keeping it according to My Word. Psalm 119:9.

Your word is very pure, therefore Your servant loves it. Psalm 119:140.

My Word makes you pure, it cleanses you. John 15:3. I sanctify and purify you in the truth and My Word is truth. My Son washes you as His body on earth so that He might sanctify you, having cleansed you by the washing of water with the Word, so that He might present to Himself the church having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that you would each be holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27.

Stop looking at others’ failures and do not hook up with them or let them discourage your faith. Abraham got so fully persuaded of My ability to perform what I promised that he stopped looking at his own body and that of Sarah, i.e., just focusing on the ability of the flesh, and instead focused only on My promise, and then the promised child came to be. My Word, which is My Will, prospered in his hand. The hand of his tongue. He started calling in those things that are not as though they are and then it came to be.

To walk in the truth means to walk by My Word which means to walk with Me for I am My Word. Noah walked with Me and prospered though everyone else in the world went under. When he came through the flood, he owned the whole world like Adam and Eve and I gave him the same blessing to be fruitful and to take dominion.

Do not say anything on your own initiative that does not line up with My Word. Jesus did not What you say determines the outcome of your journey. Think before you speak and speak with the Sword of the Spirit, which is My Word.

How do I win over Satan and his unclean demons when Jesus returns? By the Sword coming out of His mouth. Revelation 19:15-21. And how do overcome Satan and the curse of lack, sickness, and eternal death he is trying to put on you and pull you off your prosperous journey? The same way. I have given you the same Sword for I have put My Words in your mouth. Isaiah 59:21. “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17. And how do you take it up? With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit. Ephesians 6:18.

And that Sword is full of blood. The Word and the Blood of the unblemished Lamb.

The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is sated with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats, With the fat of the kidneys of rams. Isaiah 34:6.

The Word and the Blood of Jesus. That is not only walking in the truth, but walking in POWER.

When you walk in the truth, which is My Word, you walk in POWER. Mountain moving, yoke destroying, tree uprooting, storm stopping and Satan blocking power. There is POWER in My Word. I uphold all things by My Word of POWER. Hebrews 1:3. Including your health, prosperity and beautiful life. It is all in My Word for you. Love and walk in that truth of health and prosperity and as your spirit takes dominion over your mind the more prosperous your soul will be—no more inner torment, doubt, anger, or fear for all will be shalom shalom as you keep your mind stayed on Me and it won’t be able to be contained within, it will pour out richly into every area of your life.

My Words are LIFE (abundant life) to those who find them and health to ALL their flesh. Totally encompassed round about, in and out, on a prosperous journey filled with good things from above.

I love you. Above all I desire that you prosper and are in good health, even as your soul prospers by walking in the truth, the way, and the life. Shalom.
