A promise is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen. Where important bodies such as governments are involved, such promises generally assume the form of treaties, the provisions of which are accepted as binding on all those participating. Among honest individuals a promise carries with it the expectation that the promisor is both willing and able to fulfill the commitment to the promise, with the undertaking being accepted by the latter on the basis of good faith. God is the greatest promise maker and promise keeper in existence. God always keeps his Word. 2 Corinthians 1:20 NJKV. "For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."
The Fourth prophetic promise of the City of Faith Church and Pastor Sabra Harrison Johnson's vision is the promise of Yearly Increase.
Yearly Increase (the witness of Total Life Victory) for a person begins with a new birth, a new relationship with God, new motivations, and a new relationship with mankind. The process of manifesting yearly increase (the outpouring of total life victory) involves learning to live abundantly, being cleansed from sin, and learning to fight spiritual battles.
Life with God produces some greater increases of His manifestation. This manifestation is ultimately spiritual. This manifestation involves an increase in the spiritual intangibles of increased power in prayer, increased illumination in His Word, increased revelatory insight into the area of your assignment, an increase in anointing, and increase in faith… and increases in financial and material quality of life.
God's Promises Never Fail
None of God's promises in the Bible ever fail. It's in the Bible, Joshua 23:14, ESV. "...Not one word has failed of all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed."
Financial Oppression and Economic disenfranchisement has been used of the demonic realm to hinder the fulfillment of personal purpose in the earth. City of Faith Church teaches financial increase and economic growth.
From a young age, most of us are trained to get an education, get a job, and continue along that path for 40+ years until retirement or death. And that is the classical life cycle in America. After all, peak earning years come late, and Social Security isn’t available until you reach your 60s.
But there is a real problem with this line of thinking. It assumes we should all follow the same linear path from elementary school until death. It implies that we should spend the majority of lives at work, trying to climb the ladder, to get a raise, to buy a bigger house, to fill it with more stuff that wasn’t necessary to begin with. Only after you get old and retire do you have any freedom to make life decisions, or travel, or spend time with your family.

I can’t speak for you or anyone else, but I find that entire scenario repulsive.
First there are youth that have experienced generational poverty couple with the inferior educations. In America, the economy is driven by higher education. This higher education grants a reward of financial increase which gives natural financial freedom. The Word has the power to give one the opportunity to break the cycle of generational poverty. Pastor Sabra and City of Faith teach financial freedom.
Welcome to Financial Freedom Through Acquired Word Knowledge
What I’m describing is financial freedom through the principles of God’s Word, or the ability to make life decisions without worrying about financial constraints set by society. Financial freedom is synonymous with financial independence or early retirement, all of which seem to be used interchangeably these days. But true financial freedom is to follow your personal path in life (the Kingdom Agenda) and trust God will add “these things” to your life. God takes care of His people.
People tend to view retirement as the last stage of life. Retirement is viewed as the realm of financial freedom and peace. It is at this time people begin to pursue their personal passions in life because for the first time in life money is not a worry. The people of God can retire from the “grind of working towards retirement” through the power of God’s Word. We are to live are purpose now! Pastor Sabra has a special anointing to help others walk in the freedom of personal purpose with economic increase.
Financial freedom is about the ability to make decisions. It doesn’t require that you stop working, or make any major life changes. But it allows you that opportunity to walk in personal purpose in the earth. Time (not money) is our most valuable asset. Money satisfaction (needs met) allows you the freedom to spend your time in the Kingdom agenda. In fact, God’s says your gift will make room for you.
Ask Yourself This Question
How would you spend your remaining years if money weren’t an issue? Through Faith Money is not hindrance to the believer.
Your answer to that question reveals the path of your life. We work for 40 years in careers and jobs we dislike in hopes of one day to live a life of purpose. Pastor Sabra and City of Faith Church says you can live this life now.
You don’t need to wait 40 years to find financial freedom, you can get there much quicker if you’ll devote your life to walking in your created purpose. Prosperity theology views the Bible as a contract between God and humans: if humans have faith in God, he will deliver security and prosperity. Through your "Positive Confession" a believer with faith can speak into existence anything consistent with the will of God.

God's Promises About Money, Finances, Prosperity and Employment
God will take care of your day-to-day needs. It's in the Bible, Matthew 6:31-34, NKJV. “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
As you meditate on God’s word your way will be prosperous. It’s in the Bible, Joshua 1:8, NKJV. "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
Test God, see if He will bless you will more than you can hold. It’s in the Bible, Malachi 3:10-11, NKJV. "Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” says the Lord of hosts;"
