Abundant Harvest: If You Only Knew – John Bendixen (WTB)
I’m asking you to stop calling me, your man of God. I prefer to go with the titles that are in the Scriptures (pastor, apostle, teacher, evangelist, spiritual father) and not man-made titles for spiritual leaders. I don’t need revered titles to speak for me; I will let the messages and my life speak for itself.
If you want to honour anything about my life and my ministry – then do the Word of God.
I have begun to see visions; to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit with the Word of Wisdom and the Word of Knowledge (2 Corinthians 12:2-6 NLT).
Please refer to: (link) for a vision Ps John shared.
The basis of my message is: If you only knew that every word that you speak that comes out of your mouth, that is the Word of God, is creating light paths for you and those light paths as they touch the soil of the ground of your future, they create trees of light that begin to express immediately the fruit of God’s Word into your life. When you speak the Word of God into your life, there is nothing that cannot be accomplished. If you are silent, there’s no forest, there’s no light paths for you to follow.
As a Christian, if you only knew that your silence was creating nothing, then your personality of how you approach your walk with God becomes irrelevant. If you’re a quiet type that doesn’t speak very much, or you’re in your head more than you’re in your mouth, then I tell you, you need to be in your mouth not in your head. Because in your head you can’t create paths of light, but with the Word of God in your mouth you can. Most Christians stay in their head, they connect their emotions to their head, and then when they speak, they speak what their emotions and their head say.
Jesus said, “When the time of harvest comes, the wheat will be separated from the weeds.” The growing up happens together (Matt 13:29). It’s not good for you to go back to your life and try and undo all the things that you’ve sown in your life that are not good. You can’t do anything about that now. But you can do what you need to do for the future. What you need to do is keep sowing seeds that are good, and when harvest time comes, you will find that there’s this portion of your life where there is lots of abundant fruit and harvest (the rest will be burned away and separated).
The enemy of God will try and prevent you from doing this. All the enemy has got to do, is create enough stimulus around your world to get you in your head and your emotions. Then you won’t believe God; you will believe what you emote.
It takes a choice and that takes a dedicated decision to speak words of life.
If you are quiet, you are building nothing for your future. If you are speaking words and you don’t see any change, then say this, “I speak words so that my heart can believe”. Your heart can’t believe in your silence; your heart can only believe in the Word of God that comes out of your mouth.
John 4:9-10 (AMPC) “If you had known and recognized God’s gift, who it is standing here, you would have asked a different question. You would have asked Me to give you living water”.
If you want to keep living as a natural person (do what pleases you and follow your own self) you will thirst for the rest of your life. It’s a thirst you can’t quench, it drives you (you will keep chasing power, money, status).
If you’ve got the Living Water that He gives you, that’s inside of you, you are completely satisfied (and then God uses that Water to satisfy other people’s needs) (John 4:13-14 NKJV).
1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 (NKJV) is not about us going, it is about us staying and living with alertness, with sober mind, knowing we are sons of light. We are of the light and when we speak words of light we are creating shafts of light, paths of energy of light: energy of life, energy of healing, energy of prosperity, energy of restoration, energy of peace, energy of good things.
The spiritual fix is not in another drink of water, the spiritual fix is in you becoming the water.
God has given us a responsibility to bring messages of words that are admonition, encouragement, exhortation and sometimes correction. If you don’t recognize that, then you can’t receive it. If people don’t get what I’ve been teaching, eventually what has to happen is the light that’s in me, has got to come and touch their darkness and the minute that light touches that darkness it has to correct, because darkness flees where light comes (they then either receive the correction or they leave) ( Thessalonians 5:11-12 NKJV).
I’ve got a harvest, I’ve got a forest of trees of light around me, and they’re all beginning to bear fruit. The fruit is happening in such a speed that I’m requiring to have the wisdom of God to execute my steps in my life so that: we all go in together; we don’t leave some faint-hearted behind; we do correct some unruly ones; and for those that are weak, we hold them up. We need to be patient so that we can all go together. (1 Thessalonians 5:12-15 NKJV).
