7 Reasons You Will Be Rewarded

Written by Larry H. Posted in RichThoughts

Just when I think God can’t amaze me more . . .  a new Word comes.`

If you need encouragement in the battle. . .strength to carry on. . .wisdom to understand what’s happening to you or around you. . .insight on your future success. . . then this teaching is for you.

Recently my fine wife, Bev, read Isaiah 45:19 in the Amplified Bible to me.  It exploded in my spirit!  Like a volcanic eruption, the Holy Spirit began showing me 7 amazing promises.

“I have not spoken in secret(1), in a corner of the land of darkness; I did not call the descendants of Jacob [to a fruitless service] (2), saying, Seek Me for nothing (3) [but I promised them a just reward] (4). I, the Lord, speak righteousness (the truth—trustworthy (5), straightforward correspondence between deeds and words) (6); I declare things that are right.”(7)

I’m convinced beyond any doubt. . . God wants you to see, understand and expect the manifestation of these seven promises in your life NOW …RIGHT NOW!

First, God makes no secret about the kind of life He wants you to have.

The enemy of your success will try to deceive you into believing where you are and what you have. . .is all there will ever be.  It’s a lie because he’s a liar.

12 Reasons Poverty Is A Choice

Written by Larry H. Posted in RichThoughts

Being poor is a choice. . . this is true anywhere in the world but especially if you live in the United States.

A person or family may not have chosen to be living in poverty but they definitely have made a mental decision to accept their situation and have chosen to stay there.  They may not even mentally ‘know’ they’ve chosen the lifestyle . . . but it all hinges on choices we make.  Included in that is the decision to not change where we’re at.

A decision not to change is a decision to remain the same.

I can cite examples of people in countries. . .industrialized and third world who decided they were tired of being poor and took control of their financial destiny.

How can I be so sure that poverty is not a predetermined destiny?

Deuteronomy 15:4-5 in the Message Bible says:

7 Ways Heathens Masquerate As Christians

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I suppose the first time I ever heard the word heathen other than church was when Aunt Esther on the hit television show Sanford and Son called Fred Sanford one.  It seems I even remember her calling Fred a “heathen reprobate.”

In the scripture, the Greek word for heathen appears in the scriptures 164 times in 152 verses. . .and in 157 of those occasions the word appears as gentiles or nations.

According to Strong’s Concordance the Greek word for heathen means:

7 Reasons My Reward Is More Than A Trip To Heaven

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

A STRANGER AND I TOOK HIM IN…..

“He’s gone to his eternal reward.”

Sounds great, doesn’t it.  The phrase is mentally soothing. . .emotionally comforting and spiritually authoritative.

The phrase is the religious way of saying that someone has gone to heaven.

As best as I can tell. . .the phrase was first written by the author James Joyce in his book The Sisters which was published in 1905.

Now don’t get me wrong. . .I’m not belittling the meaning of the expression.

7 Reasons Being Alive Is More Than Fogging a Mirror

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

It’s Good Friday. . .as I seek the Lord about my Easter Sunday night teaching at TLC,

I was led to 1 Corinthians 15:20-22:

“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?

7 Keys To Immediate Financial Success

I just love the unction of the Holy Spirit. . .how He corrects and directs at the same time.  I even have to smile at how He does it. . .in ways you least expect it.

Recently, I was reading a book. . .which I wouldn't recommend for everybody. . .that's why I'm not giving you the title in this blog.

This particular author listed three reasons he thinks people are unsuccessful.  He said people are:   # 1 lazy, # 2 stupid and # 3 they don't give a . . . . well you know what that means.

Who Is Determing Your Lot in Life

“Well, I can’t do anything about my situation. . .it’s just my lot in life.”

When I heard that statement. . .I wanted to shout out.

Are you kidding me?

Do you realize how spiritually ignorant and harmful such a statement is?

7 Keys to Experiencing God's Best

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Over the years, I’ve counseled so many partners to wait for Isaac because they don’t need Ishmael in their lives.  We should always. . .always want God’s best in our lives.

It’s always best to wait for God’s best. . .because life is too short to do anything without God's best.

Recently, I came across a quote which not only fired my imagination but confirmed the advice I’d given over the years.

7 Things About The Golden Rule

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

I remember learning The Golden Rule early in life.

Later in school. . .I learned the modified version.

“Do unto others before they have a chance to do it unto you.”

As an adult, I learned yet another version of The Golden Rule.  This one says:
