Ten Things We Know About Thanksgiving

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

1.         Thanksgiving should be something you initiate.

Leviticus 22:29 says:

“And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the LORD, offer it at your own will.”       

2.         You should begin your prayers with thanksgiving.

Nehemiah 11:17 in the New King James version says:

“. . the leader who began the thanksgiving in prayer. .”

3.         Continually write down and sing about what you’re thankful for.

Psalm 26:7 says:

” That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.”   

4.         Mixing your giving with thanksgiving will deliver you from your troubles.

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.

Make This Your Turning Point

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

If you’ve been trying to stay afloat in the storms of life. . .if you need encouragement for the battles you’re in. . .then. . .tonight’s teaching is just for you.

Mark 4:35-40 in the Amplified Bible says:

“35 On that same day [when] evening had come, He said to them, Let us go over to the other side [of the lake].

36 And leaving the throng, they took Him with them, [just] as He was, in the boat [in which He was sitting]. And other boats were with Him.

37 And a furious storm of wind [of hurricane proportions] arose, and the waves kept beating into the boat, so that it was already becoming filled.

38 But He [Himself] was in the stern [of the boat], asleep on the [leather] cushion; and they awoke Him and said to Him, Master, do You not care that we are perishing?

39 And He arose and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, Hush now! Be still (muzzled)! And the wind ceased (sank to rest as if exhausted by its beating) and there was [immediately] a great calm (a perfect peacefulness).

40 He said to them, Why are you so timid and fearful? How is it that you have no faith (no firmly relying trust)?”

No matter how spiritual you are or aren’t. . .there will come a time in your life when the storm clouds will fill your horizon, darkening the view of your destination, beating your ship of state. . .making you wonder whether you will survive the winds and the rain.

If you draw a breath. . .you’re considered dangerous to the devil. . .you will face a crisis in life from time to time.

The question is not whether or not you will face a crisis but rather how you will respond to it.

But in every crisis. . .you can find opportunity.

Faith And The Word Bring Success

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I’ve been teaching people how to get out of debt for 30 years.  I was doing so before it was cool, fashionable or even profitable.

Over the years, I’ve resisted the temptation to align myself with financial planners, insurance agents, real estate brokers and others in the financial professions to make money off referrals from those who follow this ministry.  I have at times recommended them as good … but not for a profit.

The Bible is an instruction manual for success. . .revealing how to walk in God’s blessing flow and experience the good life He envisions for us.  It’s all in the Word.

God’s instructions are not situational. . .they don’t vary based on current economic conditions, which party is in power, your personal circumstances or  unrest anywhere in the world.  The principles in his Word are clear and absolute.  This is important to know … now more then ever.

If you want to experience God’s power. . .you must know His Word.

Matthew 22:29 is so powerful that I’m going to read it to you in four translations because if you get nothing else but this scripture then this teaching would have accomplished its purpose.

What You Believe...Will Happen

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I’ve got a word for you. . .whatever you’ve been believing God for. . .it’s going to happen.

It’s not a question of if. . .but when.

I remember when my fine wife, Bev, shared a scripture with me that ignited in my spirit and strengthened my belief that . . . whatever you’re believing for. . .trusting God for is going to happen. . .is going to manifest.

1 Chronicles 28:20 in The Living Bible says:

“Then he continued, “Be strong and courageous and get to work. Don’t be frightened by the size of the task, for the Lord my God is with you; he will not forsake you. He will see to it that everything is finished correctly."

In this powerful verse. . .we find seven reasons what you’re believing for. . .is going to happen.

1.     Be strong

In 1 Chronicles 28:20 the Hebrew word for strong is chazaq (ha zak) (H2388) and it means:

Get Ready For Kingdom Business

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

As you looked at the title of this teaching...you might assume that I'm going to teach on the second coming of Jesus.  Not true.

Many of you know already that I don’t spend a lot of time reading, wondering or worrying about the end-times.

I’m more concerned about growing up in Jesus than going up to meet Him.  If I live the kind of life I should. . .then I will never have to worry about going up.

I think everybody would agree. . .Jesus is coming soon. . .He’s coming for His bride without spot or wrinkle. . .if you’ve been born again and are living a righteous life. . .you’re going up to meet Him. . .whenever He comes.

So I’m ready. . .to go up. . .when He shows up.  How about you?

However, God expects us to be prepared to facilitate His return and the advancement of His Kingdom here on earth while we’re here.

Here are two quotes to stir our faith and expand our vision.

President Abraham Lincoln once said:

How To Change Your Way Of Thinking

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Every serious student of the Word knows the enemy wants to control and direct our thought lives.

However, there is someone else undergirding you…giving you what you need to keep from being led astray.

Jeremiah 29:11 says:

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

Now I realize you’ve heard this scripture probably more times than you can remember, but I want you to pay particular attention to what I’m about to say. . .it can be a life-changing revelation.

If you’ve heard it. . .you probably need to be reminded of it.  But if you don’t know it then GET READY. . .your life is about to change.

The verse says God knows the “THOUGHTS” that HE “THINKS” toward you.  I find it interesting to note that He didn’t say the thoughts He thinks about you.  No, He said, “The thoughts that He thinks toward you.”

Simply said, the Master of Universe is sending thoughts your way.

Did you get what I just said?  God is sending thoughts your way.

7 Keys To Becoming A Dreamer

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

As I was preparing this teaching. . .the following sentence stirred in me.

“God wants us to dream bigger…speak boldly…think creatively…associate higher…do more…never give up and start today.”

I thought. . .that would be a great Facebook post and Tweet for Twitter. . .but the Lord clearly impressed upon me an urgency in writing it for RICH THOUGHTS TV.

Here’s what I know. . .this teaching is especially for some of God’s choice chosen vessels. . .like you.

# 1   Dream Bigger.

In my mind. . .I was seeking to find some fresh revelation on dreams but then I realized the vast majority of us. . .don’t perceive or receive the truth God wants us to get. . .with just listening to something once or twice.

You’ll never succeed in achieving your wildest dreams. . .unless you have some wild dreams to begin with.

My Mom recently celebrated her 93rd birthday and I can tell you she’s still dreaming about where she wants to go and what she wants to accomplish for the Kingdom of God.

John Barrymore, the actor, once said:

“A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.”
