Power Of One Simple Idea Marc Benioff is the CEO of the multi-billion
dollar technology leader — Salesforce.com.
When he started his company in 1999, he
made it company policy to give a percentage
to charity in this manner:
1% of equity — worth $0 at the time
1% of profits — worth $0 at the time
1% of employee time — there was 0 employee
The company took off like a rocket, and
today has become the industry leader in
What does 1% translate to?
To date Salesforce.com has given away:
- 10 million dollars — 1% of profits
- 10-20 million dollars — 1% of equity
- 50,000 hours — 1% of employee
time to charitable causes.
Salesforce calls this the 1-1-1 model.
It gets even more interesting so please
pay close attention here.
In 2003 Marc was giving a talk at Stanford
University. He described in detail how the
model has worked for the company.
In the audience that day were the founders
of Google, the search engine giant.
At the end of the presentation, they
approached Marc and told him they were
interested in adopting their giving
model for Google.
Google has set up a foundation to implement
the 1-1-1 model.
As I write they have set aside a massive
1.5 BILLION dollars which they are giving away
This is the power of one simple idea --
Giving back or tithing a certain percentage
of your income.
This is the power of one simple idea plucked
right out of the Bible.
It is the dominant secret of financial
But it is NOT the only one.
In the Bible there are 6 others…
The Golden Key …
What Is it?
The Bible says in Phil. 4:19:
My God shall supply ALL your needs
according to His riches in glory by
To experience divine prosperity, you
first have to recognize GOD as your provider.
This brings us to the divine laws of prosperity,
hidden from plain view in the Bible.
Failure to observe these divine laws give
The 7 Common Mistakes …
But you can avoid them… by diligently applying :
Law #1: Tithing
The tithe is one tenth of your income.
When we pay our tithes, the Lord opens
to us the windows of heaven … but this
is just the beginning.
(NOTE: please don’t pay attention to the modern-day
Pharisees who teach that tithing is unscriptural. Truth
is: everyone pays tithe — either to God or to Pharaoh!)
Law #2: Offerings
You must be generous by giving freewill
offerings unto the Lord. This law ensures
that the more you give unto the Lord, the
more abundance you experience (potentially).
Listen to this:
While the tithe opens the windows of heaven
to you, your offerings will activate the
law of giving and receiving –
So you’ll be able to receive and KEEP the
blessings in your storehouse.
Law #3: Building His Church
God wants His people to participate in
building for Him, both spiritually and
God will always bless those who join
hands in building His church. You can
prove this to yourself if you know
of a church project going on.
Blessing Ministers Sent By Him
There are certain ministers that God
works with. As you come across
these people, you must be discerning
enough to reach out and bless them.
Remember Elijah of old.
And Elisha the prophet.
Even Apostle Paul (he was the one who
penned the famous verse – Phil. 4:19).
When you look after the vessels that
God uses, HE Himself will look after
you. It is as simple as that.
Break The Curses and Covenants of Poverty
Here is where many believers fall down.
It is clear that so many are operating
under hidden curses and covenants of
As soon as you know how to deal with them, and then
follow up with regular tithing and offering, the LORD will surprise you!
Sowing And Reaping
Again the Bible declares: “While the
earth remains, seedtime and harvest …
shall not cease”
Without seedtime, there can be no
harvest. This is both a spiritual
and a physical law.
To walk in overflowing divine prosperity, you
need to sow good “seeds” into the work
of the Lord.
After you’ve sown that seed, then you
begin to pray in agreement with what
the Bible says … and the law of
divine prosperity will be activated
Become Skilful in Prosperity Prayers
This means learning to pray specific,
targeted prayers to release divine
This type of prayer is full of high
praises unto the Lord, plus machine-gun
prayers like this:
by the power in the blood of Jesus”
and keeps wealth be installed in my finances in
the name of Jesus.”
and domination of household wickedness in the
name of Jesus”
away from me be completely paralyzed, in the
name of Jesus”
See these last 3 prayer bullets?
Actually these are prayers #21, #22, #23
of Day 12 of the next Prayer Academy.
(They are also embedded in the on-going Prayer

In the Prayer Marathon for Singles, there
is a whole section designed to release this year’s
financial blessings within the next 90 days.

billed to start shortly will embed hundreds of this kind
of prayers …
(NOTE: you can only participate in one program at a time).
When you apply the lessons together with the

You’ll experience such overflowing divine
abundance before the end of this year, you’ll
simply be amazed…
