“Set up the Tabernacle on the first day of the new year for you.”
Exodus 40:2 (NLT; personalized)
In a very special moment. . .God directed my fine wife Bev and I to establish a tabernacle of prayer on New Year’s Day for you and other partners of this ministry.
I firmly believe that Exodus 40:2 is meant to open a door of abundance for you in 2015. That’s why I am sending you this email. Please let us have your specific prayer requests. (See Philippians 4:6).
Even though I may not be with you personally. . .God very clearly and directly told me how I was to build a tabernacle of prayer for you on New Year’s Day.
“Set up the Tabernacle on the first day of the new year for you.”
Below is the text form a special email I sent this morning concerning 24 hours of Prayer on January 24th. I have also included the audio from my RichThoughts for Breakfast call from January 21st: Are You One of the 24? Audio.
It was 1:45 AM when I awakened from a deep sleep ... and “Day Of Prayer” was stirring in my spirit.
My first thought was God was directing me to build another Tabernacle of Prayer as I did on January 1, 2010 ... but He allowed me to drift back off to sleep without fully getting His instructions as to what He wanted me to do.
It just doesn’t make any sense.
Over the years, I’ve heard a number of people say that poverty is holy.
These people have given poverty a spiritual badge of honor. They said that prosperity is evil. . .which, by the way, is an unscriptural statement since God delights in the prosperity of His children.
Psalm 35:27 says:
“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”
Despite this and other scriptures to the contrary. . .there are some who have made poverty an acceptable lifestyle.
Wow! No other word seems appropriate in describing our Financial Deliverance Conference at Revival Center for the Nations in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
The last night of the conference (Sunday, Jun 24th) was the most amazing meeting that I've ever been in. It started at 8 PM and ended after midnight. I believe these photographs tell the story. Thank you for your support of this trip and the ministry.
I was guilty of what I’m about to say. . .but not anymore.
I used to speak about what I had to have to meet this or that need. I, unwittingly, developed a need mentality. . .which was reinforced by the words of my mouth.
I can remember totaling up bills and praying for God to meet a need of this amount or that amount by a specific date planting seed when I learned that concept.
When the need was met. . .I breathed a sigh of relief and, of course, gave God the glory.
However, a moment of pure revelation came to my fine wife Bev and I. . .the day we realized that we should stop thinking and speaking in terms of need. . and begin thinking and speaking surplus.
The simple fact is when you live in surplus. . .you’ll never have to ask God to meet another need. . .ever again.
It’s time to go on a little journey with us. . .through three verses of scripture. . .where we will find seven reasons to stop thinking need and begin speaking surplus.
Deuteronomy 28:10-12 in the Amplified Bible says:
I must confess to you there are occasions when I wonder why I’m teaching what I’m teaching when I first start reading, studying, praying and writing.
Preparing seven favorite weapons of the enemy. . .was one of those occasions.
But as I got deeper into this teaching. . .I marveled at the things God revealed to me to share.
I know this teaching will help heal and comfort many who’ve been under a major assault from the enemy. But hey… no assaults are fun.
Here are the seven favorite weapons of the enemy.
Who deceives you?
Genesis 3:13 says:
“Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
2 Corinthians 4:4 in the Amplified Bible says:
You can make this year of 2017 Your Year Of Unlimited Miracles.
Last month. . .we asked our listeners and viewers to determine the #1 hindrance that’s been holding them back from doing what God and they want to accomplish in 2017.
As we read through letters and emails . . . we noticed that one thing comprised over 50% of the hindrances.
That was procrastination . . . the inability to make a decision or get started. After considering this problem in prayer . . . we were led to talk about this major basic hindrance on this call.
God reminded us of Job 22:28 in the Classic Amplified Bible which says:
“You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.”
When a king made a decree. . .it carried the force of the law with it. It was always a written document. . .specific in nature. . bearing his signature. And obeyed without question.
As we read your correspondence. . .it was easy to see. . .there were some who believed without a shadow of a doubt they would accomplish their goals. . .there were some who wanted to move forward but they were being hindered by fear or a lack of confidence.
An important recorded decree in scripture was by King Cyrus in 536 BC as recorded in 2 Chronicles 36:22-23. In The Living Bible it says:
((Editor's Note....if you're blessed by this teaching order Brother Harold's newest book "5Fold Leadership In The Marketplace.))
Have you ever wondered why the secular business world seems to flourish but the greater portion of God’s Kingdom lags behind?
Is that what God intended?
Did God design the business world to be separate from the church?
Or is the world and God’s kingdom designed to be one with each other?
In a flash of revelation, God showed me His divine plan for mankind. What we have seen in part will fully come together as we enter the end times.
As I was praying earlier this morning, the Lord brought to my remembrance the life of Job. . .a multi-millionaire.
In the first 19 verses of Job chapter one, we read of the demonic attack against this good godly man.
Job lost all his wealth, all his money and all his children were killed and then his health was attacked. In a word, you could say. . .Job lost it "all." He was broke . . . but not broken.
What was Job's response?
Job 1:20 says:
"Job got to his feet, ripped his robe, shaved his head, then fell to the ground and worshipped."
The scripture says Job fell to the ground but it doesn't say that he fell down in defeat, that he fell down and gav
e up...that he fell down and blamed everybody else.
The scripture is clear. . .in the midst of a horrendous attack. . .Job WORSHIPPED GOD.
As I was in special prayer for our partners. . .God showed me in a particular verse seven reasons your breakthrough is on the way.
Like others. . .you may have prayed about birthing a new habit. . .turning lack into more than enough. . .and the need for a breakthrough in your life.
God directed my attention to Daniel 10:12 in the Amplified Bible where He drew a direct parallel to what happened to Daniel and what may have happened to you.
“Then he said to me, Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your mind and heart to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come as a consequence of [and in response to] your words.”
Here are seven reasons your breakthrough is on the way and they all come from this passage of scripture.
1. Fear Not
In the King James Version of the Bible we’re told nine times that we should be “born again.” So I think it’s fair to say that being born again is significant and obviously important to God. After all, He paid the ultimate price by sending His only begotten Son that we should not perish but have everlasting and abundant life. . .by being born again.
Would it surprise you to know that in the King James Version of the Bible were told SIXTY-THREE times to “fear not?”
God wants us to eliminate all fear of failure.
1. Aggressively use your faith and believe for a return
We’re going to state some absolute biblical facts. They are actually fundamental to the principle of increase God put in the Bible on our behalf.
You must give to receive anything … God, not man, based multiplication based on sowing. God can only multiply planted seed. Nothing multiplied by nothing equals nothing.
Yes, you must give expecting to receive … the point is no farmer ever puts seed in the ground not expecting a harvest in return.
Give and it will be given unto you. We need to fundamentally understand & believe that God uses seedtime and harvest to prosper us. It was His intent… and not something the church or a preacher cooked up to make them rich and you poor.
Expect a financial miracle every day…look expectedly for your return.
God is your source. Never look to man to be your source.
A pity party will never get God’s attention but a seed will.
No matter how bad your financial situation is…you will never get God to feel sorry for you.
