Joel Osteen, America's most famous false prophet, has a new book out. As most of his books do, it features a smiling Joel on the front.
The blurb reads, "Broken into thirty-one parts, this book will help readers reach the truth of God's word, and how speaking God's promises can bring about His blessings."
Joel says that "declaring it" will bring it.
Joel says he wrote the book because, "I think its principles that help you to have a good self-image and feel right about yourself,"
Joel writes that we should speak and declare these things because God has "explosive blessings coming your way. I will increase you beyond your salary." (pp3-4). That is a direct quote.
In Day Two's declaration there are 55 words. I, me, or my is referred to 9 times. God is referred to 5 times. Part of it states, "I will give birth to every promise God put in my heart and I will become everything God created me to be."
On another day's declaration, we read, "This is my time! This is my moment! I receive it today! This is my declaration."
Wow, that is some power. Kind of like another guy I know who declared stuff. That guy has some stiff competition now in Mr Osteen. That guy ought to watch out! The original declarer, you know, GOD, said,
"I have declared the former things from the beginning; They went forth from My mouth, and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly I did them, and they came to pass." (Isaiah 48:3).
If we can declare all these things into being, what do we need God for? Oh, wait...
