Why is restoration 7-fold a go to for mistreatment?

Whenever I get into Christian circles, the topic turns to getting back what the enemy stole from them, and it’s ALWAYS a 7-fold restoration.

Is this according to the Word of God?

The Bible says we don”t get what we ask for if we prayer amiss, or incorrectly. (Scripture paraphrased).  So Since God and His Word are one, if we say the wrong thing, I don’t think we’ll be seeing it anytime soon.

God is like a symphony, if the instruments aren’t tuned to the right harmony, you wont hear the symphony.

The Bible breaks down these specifics on stolen property:

*Case #1

Leviticus 5:14-16 – if someone mishandles or steals property decided to the Lord

Restoration is – full value of that thing plus 1/5 added to it.

*Case #2

Leviticus 6:1-5 – if someone lies about protecting/keeping/receiving your belongings or has extorted them

Restoration is – the objects that were in question plus 1/5 added to it.

*Case #3

Exodus 22:1 – if someone steals your property and destroys or sells it

Restoration is – four or five times the value of it.

*Case #4

Exodus 22:4 – but if your property it found on the person

Restoration is – double that property.

*Case #5

Exodus 22:7 – if you give something to someone to keep and someone steals it from them

Restoration is – also double.

*Case #6

Exodus 22:14 – if one borrows something that gets destroyed

Restoration is – full value of that thing.

*Case #7

Proverbs 6:30-31 – if a person who is poor and starving and steals your stuff  for food

Restoration is – seven times the value of what was stolen.

Everyone claims sevenfold, but other amount are actually more accurate. God is only obligated to keep His Word and if we misapply it, we wont get the results we are looking for. Know His Word and apply it correctly to your life and situation and He will bless. Tell me, have you ever received your sevenfold yet?

Sinner’s Prayer:

Dear Lord & Father, You are the Creator of all things and I know you created me. But I recognize I am a sinner through Adam's Fall and you sent your only Son, Jesus Christ to live, die and be raised from the dead for me. I repent of my sins and renounce all evil works and serving of other, lower, and lesser gods before thee. Come into me life and cleanse me by your Blood. Make me whole and well by your Holy Spirit. I now desire to live for you. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Scripture of the Month-March

Things to consider:

Jesus never charged for His Sermons, Preaching, Healing, etc...why should we put His Anointing on books, tapes, and cds, and charge people for it? I recall How angry Jesus was when the leaders of the Church of His time altered the purpose of the temple and made it a business. Shouldn't we too, be afraid to do the same? UPDATE: a minister pointed out, He didn't have to because His own people were financing Him. They were wealthy...
