Here is the teaching outline for RICH THOUGHTS TV..

What does it mean in the natural to be “blessed?”  According to the Roget’s New Millennium Thesaurus” the word blessed has 24 entries:  as a noun, a verb and an adjective.  To be blessed in the human sense is to be happy, blissful, contented, fortunate, joyful, redeemed, saved, welcome, commendable, to be privileged, to possess, to not be in lack, need or want and to be favored. 

In the context of this teaching, the word blessed will mean to not be in lack and to be favored.

Before things can be Blessed, Broken and Multiplied. . .there has to be order.

This is once again the Great Reversal: Many who are first will end up last, and the last first."  Mark 10:29 MSG
