“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.
It was Good Friday. . .as I sought the Lord about my Easter Sunday night teaching here at Triumphant Life Church.
I was led to 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 in the King James Version which says:
“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
As I was meditating on this scripture. . .I felt the Lord leading me to write on this passage. At first, I wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted me to write about.
Did He want me to write about how Resurrection Sunday should be celebrated 52 weeks a year?
Did God want me to remind everyone that He is the greatest giver? That He gave us His only begotten Son that we might have eternal and abundant life?
Did He want me to remind everyone that He allowed the birth, life, death, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus because “. . .He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.” 1 Corinthians 15:20 NLT
But then, at His urging, I looked up the words “. . .in Christ shall all be made alive”in the Strong’s Concordance.
What does it mean to be alive? Is it just the opposite of being dead?
Are you feeling pressure in your everyday life? On the job. . .in your finances. . .at home either in your role as a spouse or a parent?
You want to get ahead but sometimes the pressure is almost overbearing.
Peter Marshal, a former Chaplain of the United States Senate, once told the Lord:
“When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.”
Perhaps, we need to catch a visual of ourselves becoming like the Hope diamond. . .the most famous of all precious stones.
There seems to be four main causes of pressure. . .whether generated externally or internally.
First, we get overloaded with more to do than the hours of the day will allow us to complete.
Second, we allow our emotions to create worry, anxiety and frustration. . .which drains us emotionally and physically as well.
Third, we begin to play worst case scenarios in our minds. . .imaging the worst things that could possible happen. . .if something is not completed or doesn’t happen.
Last night, at the end of a very long day. . .I was meditating on what to share during our SUNDAY NITE LIVE broadcast.
I was directed to look up the number of days left in 2017. . .at the moment there were 273 days or roughly 23 million seconds.
I wrote down seven things to learn. . .and went to bed. I awakened this morning refreshed, renewed and ready to go.
Here are seven things to learn and practice during the next 273 days.
1. Learn to maintain your momentum.
Here are seven keys to developing and maintaining momentum.
First, stop seeing yourself the way others see you.
When we’re confident of who we are in Christ. . .when we exercise our faith . . . when we know we are on the right path. . .then we should never be moved by what others. . .including friends and family members may say.
Second, despise not small beginnings.
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.
