Building A Tabernacle Of Prayer For You

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

“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.

Are You One Of The 24 Prayer Elders?

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

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.

7 Reasons Poverty Is Nothing But Trouble

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

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.

God Was Glorified and The Devil Terrified in Porto Alegre, Brazil

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

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.

7 Keys To Your Financial Breakthrough

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Breakthrough is a word we hear quite a bit in Christian circles.

I checked twelve different translations and found breakthrough only appears in the Message Bible and not in the context of contemporary usage.

According to dictionary.com breakthrough is defined as:

“a military movement or advance all the way through and beyond an enemy's front-line defense; an act or instance of removing or surpassing an obstruction or restriction; the overcoming of a stalemate.”

The dictionary definition is more in line with how we use the word breakthrough.

Now let me share with you the Herring Life Experiences definition of breakthrough. It is a:

“Sudden burst of revelation that enthusiastically moves you beyond all previous points of past resistance bringing you to a new level of success.”

In other words, you. . .nobody else but you . . . will make a decision to move beyond the boundaries that societal inertia or attacks of the enemy have taken you.

If you’ve ever prayed for a breakthrough and it hasn’t happened yet . . . get ready for the revelation in this teaching tonight.

Seven Ways To Hurt The Devil

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever wondered why it seems that you’ve been under constant attack by the enemy of your destiny?

Have you thought about why it seems nothing goes right. . .almost as if the enemy is playing games on you?

The answer is simple.

Satan fights what hurts him most. . .and that’s you.

He recognizes your potential for the Kingdom.

He knows God created a path through the Word for you to be successful and prosperous.

He understands God positioned you to operate in the end-time Office of the Giver.

He’s frightened that you’ll tap into previously unknown potential.

He’s petrified you will realize that he’s a defeated foe.

Eliminating The Giants In Your Life

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Are you facing any giants today?

We must defeat the giants in our lives before we can ever enter the Promised Land.

How do your giant(s) compare with Goliath?

1 Samuel 17:4 says:

“And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”

Based on the King James Version of the Bible six cubits and a span would make Goliath over nine feet tall.

When you consider the average height of a man in Biblical times was five feet three inches. . Goliath was truly a giant.

1 Samuel 17:5 says:

“And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.”

7 Ways To Keep Your Focus. . .Focused

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever met someone who was educated beyond their intelligence?

People who think they know more than they do. . .or that they always have the right answers, no matter what.

I’ve met my share of Christians who feel they’re more spiritual mature. . .advanced beyond ordinary Christians. I suspect that somewhere in the Bible there is a verse or verses concerning self-gratification or spiritual pride.

Recently, I had a brief conversation with someone who said. . .I heard you talking about focus, but you need to know that word is not in the King James Bible.

I immediately shared that the word, focus, is in the Amplified (1); God’s Word Translation (28); Message Bible (28) and the New Living Translation (4).

He quickly said that may be true but it’s not in the King James Bible.

How To Overcome The World System

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

In our pressurized society. . .too many believers are seeking an easy-way-out lifestyle by buying into the world system.

In short, they’re doing what everybody else is doing. . .or at least. . . almost everybody else. . .because now an ever-increasing number of believers are tapping into the wisdom of the ages found in God’s Word.

Unfortunately, so many believers follow the “wisdom” of the world when it comes to their personal finances as opposed to following the instructions found in the Word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

People. . .even born-again, Holy Spirit filled, church-going believers. . .tend to value the advice of their banker and financial planner more than they do their man or woman of God.

The Bible is not a book of exceptions, exemptions and excused behavior. It is a book of absolutes.

The Bible says what it means and it means for you to obey without hesitation.

The Bible is not a book of convenience . . . obeying its instructions when you feel like it.

Here are seven reasons to avoid the influence of the world system.

7 Dirty D's Of The Devil

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Some years ago, there was a movie entitled The Dirty Dozen. As I was remembering this World War II movie. . .I started thinking about all the dirty tricks of the devil.

I probably could have thought of a dozen dirty D’s. . .tricks of the devil. . .but I stopped after thinking of seven.

1.      Deception

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:

“For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers' minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.”

The real tragedy is that most folks who’re being deceived don’t realize they’re being deceived.

Jeremiah 9:6 in the New International Version says:
