In the morning session of the fifth day of the convention, Bishop T.V Adelakun delivered a sermon on “Covenant Wealth.” The sermon explored the concepts of wealth, riches, and money, highlighting their different characteristics and values

Here are the key points discussed in the sermon:
  1. God is the distributor of wealth, and He is the giver of riches. Haggai 2:8, Psalm 50:10, Proverbs 13:22, Genesis 26:12-14, and Genesis 13:2 were referenced to emphasize these points.
  2. Accessing covenant wealth requires certain requirements:
    • Righteousness: Psalm 113:1-3 highlights the importance of living a righteous life to access God’s blessings and covenant wealth.
    • Service: Exodus 23:25 emphasizes the connection between serving God and receiving His blessings.
    • Obedience: Obedience to God’s commands and guidance is crucial for accessing covenant wealth.

The sermon also addressed myths and lies about covenant wealth:

  1. Money is money, and the source doesn’t matter: The sermon emphasized that the source of money matters, and money that comes from God is good.
  2. Money is evil: The sermon clarified that money itself is not evil, but the love of money is.
  3. You can’t be rich if you are serving God: The sermon debunked this myth, stating that serving God does not hinder His blessings and that money should serve and worship us, not the other way around.
  4. Money is synonymous with poverty: The sermon challenged the notion that wealth and riches lead to poverty.
  5. Wealth and riches will send you to hell: The sermon clarified that wealth and riches themselves are not the issue, but how they are obtained and used.
  6. Wealth and riches will lead you to adultery: The sermon emphasized that money does not make a person adulterous; it is a matter of character and personal choices.
  7. Prosperity messages are materialistic: The sermon addressed the misconception that prosperity messages are solely focused on material possessions, highlighting the holistic nature of biblical prosperity.
