Big and Bold Part 1 – Ps John & Sharon Bendixen (WTB)
I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith (2 Timothy 1:5 AMPC). Timothy had sincere unqualified faith – (the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness.) I have a sincere faith. I have a faith that is given to me by God. Therefore I don’t need to qualify for it or do anything special to get it, I have faith. My responsibility is to grow my faith and I do that by the Word of God.
Un-qualifying faith is the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust. (2 Timothy 1:5 AMPC) I trust the Word of God, I have confidence in the Word of God, and I trust the messengers or the Word that the messengers bring. I don’t doubt the Word that the messenger brings to me, or what has been prophetically spoken by the leading of the Holy Spirit. I don’t doubt it; I receive the end result. Leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), 6That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, (2 Timothy 1:6 AMPC)
I keep stirring it up every day. I stir up the embers of my faith and my entire leading of personality on Him – that’s where I have a consistent, steady result of the faith that I live in.
I am so grateful to God for Your Word, thank You for Your Word – every progress that I make is because of the messages and because of the Word of God.
With these messages and the Word of God – the written, precious, holy, Word of God and the Prophetic Word of God. It’s both and, that’s how I live victoriously. 7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing without revealing His secret to His servants the prophets (Amos 3:7 AMPC).
20Do not spurn the gifts and utterances of the prophets, the Amplified says, [do not depreciate prophetic revelations nor despise inspired instruction or exhortation or warning] (1 Thessalonians 5:20 AMPC). God shares with the prophets and I do not depreciate them because they give me inspired instruction. They exhort me and they warn me.
God does speak through people. He has people that he chooses to work through. Even in my own life, He will choose, He has chosen me to speak words, prophecies, declarations, outcomes, results, for my own self.
“Believe God’s Word and you will be established, believe God’s prophets and you will prosper.” 2 Chronicles 20:20 God is very clear in His Word that He sends messengers with a message.
“Believe His Word and you will be established, believe His prophets and you will prosper,” – that’s the two parts that I live. I establish my life on the Word and the Prophetic Word causes me to prosper. It’s more directive. It’s God’s surge for the time. It’s His emphasis that He places on something, for the year, or for the time or for the season.
18 This charge, son Timothy, I put to you, in keeping with the prophecies already made about you, so that by these prophecies you may fight the good fight (1 Timothy 1:18 CJB). The NIV says, 18 My son Timothy, I am giving you this command. It is in keeping with the prophecies once made about you. By remembering them, you can fight the battle well. (1 Timothy 1:18 NIRV). Another translation says, 18 …the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well (1 Timothy 1:18 NIV).
That’s how I fight the good fight of faith because faith comes by hearing the Word, hearing the Prophetic Word and hearing the Written Word of God about my life and so I fight the good fight of faith and I win. I overcome. I get great victories.
Jesus already paid the price for every battle that I am going to face, that I can win.
The battles are still there and the fight is not a fight to win against the world, it’s the good fight of my faith, to keep my faith working because if my faith keeps working, it does defeat the world; it Big and Bold
There’s no other alternative, no other outcome. If I’ve got faith, it just beats the world – every time.
I don’t fight the world, I keep my faith strong and fight against those things that want to undermine my faith. The Prophetic Word helps me to keep my faith strong; to keep my faith focused.
3 I have declared from the beginning the former things [which happened in times past to Israel]; they went forth from My mouth and I made them known; then suddenly I did them, and they came to pass [says the Lord] (Isaiah 48:3). That’s how God works. He will send prophecy, it will come forth from His mouth to the mouth of His prophets, and then it comes to my mouth and out of my mouth, and then it happens suddenly, and He does it.
6 You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfilment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known. 7 They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word] (Isaiah 48:6-7).
That’s my calling – I call things into being by the Prophetic Word. There is a messenger. The messenger brings a message from the Lord and God has ordained this in the earth.
He sets into the Church; apostles, prophets, evangelists, teachers, pastors. He sets them into the body, they are messengers, and He gives them messages to bring.
In 2021, I must live big, and I must live bold. These words are about my walk with God – it’s about having a deep meaningful walk with God and then the foundation of that walk, that faith that trust, says that I must be big and bold.
Brother Jerry had a word and his word is Abundant Overflow for 2021. Brother Copeland has spoken that, This Year is Going to be the Year of the Local Church. It’s Big and Bold, it’s Abundant Overflow and it’s The Year of the Local Church.
The local church is the established order of God for the earth. It’s where He ministers to families, it’s where He ministers to individuals; it’s where He can minister to different peoples in different environments, cultures. His order that He’s going to actually work in is always going to be the local church.
That’s where it all flows in, that’s where it all flows through and that’s where the glory of God is going to be revealed. These prophetic words are going to happen in the local church. If it’s the local church then it means local people. Local church, local people, that means me. If God is speaking Big and Bold, Abundant Overflow, it’s to me. I go for it, I go for it by faith, I go and get it; I get it done.
His Words are light. His Words from His Written Word and His Words of Prophecy are a light. 9 We have the prophetic word. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day breaks through and the Morning Star rises and comes into being in your hearts. (2 Peter 1:19 AMPC).
The Prophetic Word is firm and I will do well to pay close attention to it until I get the full light in my heart. Until the full light of the Prophetic Word and the messages that are going to come to me this year, rises in my heart. His messages are coming from Jesus.
As a born-again, recreated spirit being I have the capacity to receive as much light as you want to, Big and Bold
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night. That you may observe and do. For then you will make your way prosperous and you will have good success. (Joshua 1:8 AMPC). The message is close to you. The Weymouth translation. The message is close to you, in your mouth, and in your heart. (Romans 10:8 Weymouth)
I receive the Word; I receive it with light. I immediately speak it, I immediately make it part of my life. As my life grows and goes on, it gets stronger and stronger and stronger in me. I become surer about the way that I walk and the light gives me life and life and light goes together and it lights up my path and I can see where I need to go.
The light gets brighter and brighter because I allow the Words to flood my heart. I allow the light to flood my heart.
I go big in prayer, I go big in the Word, I go big in sound and song. I go big spiritually. I’m bold. I’m not going back.
Planted in the local church, I flourish. The most powerful move of God will take place in the local church. The glory of God will fall in the churches that are teaching and preaching, healing and going strong in the Word of Faith. 2021 a year of divine healing. That sounds like supernatural increase is continuing.
I’m going through the New Open Door with all of this.
Divine health, divine prosperity, divine recovery, all in the order of the local church. Jesus is shouting to recover. Recovery of the healing ministry, recovery of health, recovery of prosperity, all underpinned by the local church.
Brother Jerry had this Word, he says, A new era has begun. It’s saying the same thing, and more and more signs and wonders will be seen in 2021. For those who will heed My voice, and obey My Words. They will experience My goodness, and My power, as never seen or heard. They’ll see the fruit of their faithfulness, come bursting forth. They’ll prosper and flourish like never before.
Abundance and Overflow. That’s what they’ll see. I’ll bring it to pass because of their love and obedience to Me. No longer will their enemy have the upper hand, for My spirit is moving in an outpouring of My power is coming upon the land. Well, Brother Copeland says, in the local church. Many triumphant victories will mark this new era. It’s what I’ve planned, so rest in Me. Miracle after miracle. That’s what I’ll do, decree it and receive it and know that it’s true.
He’s doing miracles, He is doing miracles. He is a miracle-working God.
Refuse to be swayed by what’s said in the news. With Me on your side, how can you lose? So stay with My Word, it’s faithful and true. I’ll bring it to pass and great things I will do. Yes, a new era is Big and Bold
Your adversary can’t stop what I’ve already decreed. So, stay in faith and get ready to receive. Allow no one to discourage you by what they say. Keep looking, to Me and I’ll have My way.
God’s economy supersedes the human economy.
I really trust God and He makes things happen for me out of nothing because I speak it.
I speak it, because my heart is in it. I am planted. I speak light, in the midst of darkness and chaos, just like God.
I imitate my Father, as dear children. I call it, speak it forth.
As I speak forth the prophetic Word. As I speak forth these promises, I create. I create, because I take His Word, I take the word that the messengers have brought from Him. Those words are designed to create my future; to create momentum.
I am faithful because it will be contested. I will face opposition but he won’t be able to stand against me because God’s already won the battle for me.
Tell my people, they’ll need to remain strong, and stay close to Me. So, they’ll not be deceived by their enemy. I stay strong. I stay close to Him.
If I stay silent, and I don’t speak victory, and I don’t speak what this Word is saying, if I stay silent, I create nothing. I speak it.
Tell My people they will need to remain strong and stay close to Me so they will not be deceived by the enemy. His attacks will intensify and will try to prevail, but My power is greater and it shall not fail. Fear not nor be fretful over whatever shall come. The battle is mine and I’ve already won. Contrary to what you’ll see and what you’ll hear 2021 Will be a great year.
A Year of Abundance and Overflow, that’s My plan and it shall be so.
I speak these words. I create with this Prophetic Word. I create my entire environment this year, with the Prophetic Word. I speak light. Where there is chaos and darkness, just like our Father God, “Let there be light, let there be abundant overflow, let there be…”.
“We must be bold in defense” – I am bold in my defense. My boldness and my confidence in God is my defense.Big and Bold
I am bold in my protection.
I am bold in offence: attack. In the Spirit, “It’s time to attack.”
I am bold in my offense and I am bold in my new directions.
I am bold in my established faith. I am established in my faith, because the Word of God is exactly what establishes me. I am bold. I have the Word.
I am bold, in sowing my God given gifting. Whatever my calling is, the Lord says, “I must be bold.” I’m going to give my gift. God will use that as a platform to bring good things to my life, and I must be bold.
I am bold in obtaining a great harvest.
It’s a time of supernatural and divine healing, divine prosperity.
I go after the big harvest. How big do I go? How big is my praise? How big is my thanksgiving? How big is my mouth?
I have a big mouth this year.
I fill my mouth with God’s Words, fill your mouth with His will and His plan for my life. I fill my world, my mouth with His assignment and purposes for me.
How much praising am I going to do? How much thanksgiving am I going to do? This will lead to, and be determined by the faith that grows from the Word of God, and grows from the God given faith that I have.
I live in the mind of God’s possibilities, not what seems possible in the world. I live in the knowledge of God’s probabilities; His possibilities; His probabilities. I live in the essence of His presence; I live in the function of God’s pattern – which is to fill my mouth with words, praise and thanksgiving. I live in the substance of God’s unseen power.
I behave and act like God’s power has an impact on my world, even though I can’t see it. I always live in the moment of God’s protection. I live in the expectation of God’s provision.
How big is my giving? How big is my generosity? One of the definitions of the word big: it is to be generous, liberal, openhanded, liberal and generous. How big is my giving? My big harvest needs big giving.
I’m a big giver this year. I’m a big praiser. I’m a big thanks-giver and a giver. I’m a big mouth.
