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.

ABC's Of Success Over Failure

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Failure is an event. . .it’s not who you are.  Failure is never final if you have the God-given desire and direction to change your destiny.

In this teaching we're going to share with you very specific ABC's Of Success Over Failure.

A-Admit it when you mess up.  The best way to overcome failure is to face it, learn from it and move on.

Proverbs 28:13 in The Living Bible says:

“A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance.”

B-Boldy refuse to accept failure as final regardless of how badly you may have messed up. 

On May 29, 1953, Sir Edmond Hillary was the first man to climb Mount Everest. . ..29,000 feet straight up. He was knighted for his efforts.

People remember his triumph but few people know that he failed in his first attempt a year earlier.

Later he was asked to speak to an audience that recognized his first attempt at greatness. But Edmund Hillary saw himself as a failure.

He walked to the edge of the platform, made a fist and pointed at a picture of Mount Everest. Then he said in a loud voice:

Create A Miracle Finish To 2020

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

When I ask believers on daily conference calls or our live streaming broadcasts to determine the #1 hindrance that’s been holding them back from doing what God and they want to accomplish in the remainder of 2020 the answer is almost always the same.

It’s 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 tonight’s broadcast.

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 that they would accomplish their goals in 2020.  There were some who wanted to move forward but they were being hindered by fear of COVID19 or a lack of confidence. 

Things Your Faith Makes Possible

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

During the 2,801 calls we shared together during the past 7 years and eight months on Rich Thoughts for Breakfast, I’ve written forty-nine teachings just on faith. I’ve also mentioned faith on over 2,000 of the daily calls.

You would think I’ve said what should be said or taught about faith. . .but that’s not the case.

Here are seven things faith makes possible.

First, Faith Positions Us to Receive Forgiveness.

Romans 3:25 in the Amplified Bible says:

“For we hold that a man is justified and made upright by faith independent of and distinctly apart from good deeds (works of the Law). [The observance of the Law has nothing to do with justification.].”

As the scripture says we are saved by grace through faith.

Ephesians 2:8-9 in the Amplified Bible says:

The Verse That Changed My Life

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever had someone say. . . “I’ve been thinking about you.”

While we assume those thoughts are good. . .we have no idea what they’re thinking or how long they even thought about us.

There is a pick-up line that single men sometimes use on single women.  It goes like this.

“Girl, I’m so tired. . .because you’ve been running through my mind all day.”

By the way ladies, if a man ever uses that line on you. . .be flattered but quickly ask him. . .if he has a job. . .does he have a five-year plan for the future. . .if he doesn’t answer “yes” to both those questions. . .leave him in the rearview mirror of your life.

On a spiritual level. . .God does bring people to our minds. . .people he wants us to pray for.

In this teaching, I want to talk about someone who thinks about you 24/7.

Don't Steal My Blessing

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

We have some wonderful people in our lives who love to give us meals. They have blessed us so much that at one point I wanted to give them some money for all the great meals that we’ve received at their hand.

To which the wife replied, “Don’t steal our blessings.”

Here are seven things that blessing thieves need to know.

1.         Learn to receive.

John 1:12 in the Amplified Bible says:

“But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name.”

According to Strong’s Concordance the Greek word for receive is H2943 and it means:

“to take with the hand, lay hold of, any person or thing in order to use it; to take what is one's own, to take to one's self, to make one's own; to receive (what is given), to gain, get, obtain, to get back”

Salvation is a gift. . .but we must receive it.

Healing is a gift. . .but we must receive it.

God’s promises are a gift. . .but we must receive them.

Holy Ghost power is a gift. . .but we must receive it.

7 Keys To Mountain-Moving Faith

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Are you expecting a promise from God to be fulfilled? Are you trusting God for a financial breakthrough? Are you facing seemingly insurmountable odds?

If so, you must make sure your faith is strong and unmovable. You must persevere and believe as Abraham and Sarah did and stand firm until your victory appears.

Write this down. . .

“I WILL STAND FIRM UNTIL MY VICTORY APPEARS.”

Confess this sentence throughout the day until it becomes engrafted in you.

Romans 4:17-22 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

17 As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. [He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed.
