What is the prosperity message in Christian teachings?

Prosper. What that means to a true Christian should be what it means to God, and it's not usually about money or aquisitions.

e.g. Ezekial 17:10 Yea, behold, being planted, shall it prosper? ... That is, shall it bear fruit? God wants us to prosper and we will if we remain in Christ. That means we will bear fruit. Curiously, it is found only once in the New Testament, in 3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

== Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. -- Luke 16:25 : Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. -- Matthew 19:23-24, Mark 10:23-25 : But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. -- Luke 6:24 : Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. -- James 5:1
