Big and Bold Part 9: Kingdom Finances Part 4 – Ps John & Sharron Bendixen (WTB)
The Church of the Lord Jesus was intended to be a body of collective people that revealed Jesus on the earth in all of their individual greatness together.
16I will make My home in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be My people (2 Corinthians 6:16 TPT).
We are going to have a stage and we are going to have an auditorium that will be worthy of the message that God wants us to minister. It will be worthy of the collective greatness of this body and of the words and the unity and the power of this body, that our message will be known to the world – a worthy platform.
He is speaking to us preparing us for Big and Bold, He’s preparing us for Abundant overflow in the Local Church and with the local church.
The Lord said this through Brother Jerry, More and more finances will break loose, so that My people can do more for the Kingdom of God.
“What is my ‘more’ for? So My people can do more, more and more finances will break loose so My people can do more for the kingdom of God?
Pastor John, Heritage of Faith Church, this will be your finest hour, a time, a time… It’s the time, it’s the timing of God. A time when all will see and hear you speak and will know that your God is a faithful God. Don’t be surprised, Pastor John, when unusual resources come from unexpected sources. Understand this; there is no lack of money in the body of Christ.
There is a lack, only a lack of obedience. But I am changing that.
I say: He is changing my disobedience to obedience. He is busy working on my instincts to change, to want to be obedient to Him like I have never been obedient to Him before.
I’m moving upon numerous people right now and they will follow through with what I’m instructing them to do.
I say: I open my heart fresh and new to these messages that have been coming and will continue to come. He will change that in me.
I’m changing your lack of obedience. I’m moving upon you now. I’m moving upon your heart and you will follow through with what I’m instructing you to do.
He’s actually preparing us to invest in our eternity.
I say: Whatever I invest in the Kingdom of God is an eternal investment and my investment is waiting for me.
I say: God is moving on me, and He’s moving me from disobedience to obedience, so that my energy, my skill, my time, my talent that is used to make money, will now be dedicated to God – This is a representative of my eternity.
“The main reason for blessing you and causing you to have abundant overflow is not so that you can store it up”. 15“Your life is not derived from and does not consist of possessing overflowing abundance or debt which is over and above your needs”.
I say: I do not hoard for myself treasures on earth, but treasures in heaven. God doesn’t want me being a hoarder. I seek the Kingdom of God with my stuff – it’s not so that I can store it up, but so I can be a blessing and finance the work of God. My ‘more’ is not for me to store, it’s for me to finance the work of God. It is so I can be a blessing and finance the work of God and be involved now in this next great move of God. I get this deep in my Spirit, now. I decree it right now. I sow it into my heart with my mouth immediately and decree this; “God is making me His vessel, and He will use me to be a distributor of finances in this next great move of God.”
I say: I have recognition of the time of God. I receive instructions from Him. I give instructions. I activate obedience with boldness. When I do those things, the law of attraction kicks in. It attracts everything that God’s Word says is coming to me. I continue all of the above, again, I maintain my recognition of the time of God, I maintain receiving instructions, giving instructions, I maintain activating obedience with boldness. When I have these points operating in me, then I am waking up.
Jesus expects you and I to have recognition of the times we’re living in. 56Then Jesus turned to the crowd: “When you see clouds coming in from the West, you say, ‘Storm’s coming’ – and you’re right. And when the wind comes out of the South, you say, ‘This will be a hot one’ and you’re right. You know how to tell a change in the weather, so don’t tell me you can’t tell a change in the season, the God season we’re in right now.’ (Luke 12:56 MSG)..
56You are such experts at forecasting the weather, but you are totally unwilling to understand the spiritual significance of the time you’re living in (Luke 12:56 TPT).
56You can predict the weather by paying attention to the sky and the earth, but why can’t you interpret the urgency of this present moment? (Luke 12:56 VOICE).
I say: I have to be awake so that I can move with Him now. It’s His New Era that He has established. He opened a New Door, and I’m in the New Era, the New Door – He opened it for Himself with His Local Church that is going to go with Him.
This prophecy from Kenneth Copeland: This great awakening that is hanging heavily around the nations of the world. This great awakening that is hanging there; just hanging there, to be realised and to be flowed and released. The prayer, the prayer, the prayer, the prayer that’s gone forth. The prayer that is going forth. That is where the power release is.
That is where the trigger of these things is, that’s the way they are released in your church. Thus says the Lord your God, in this hour, “These local churches that are teaching and training people to pray…” That’s us, we qualify… Those are the churches where the explosion and Shekinah Glory of God will be manifest first. The praying churches will walk in it first. And they will say, “My, revival broke out over there!” No, answered prayer broke out over there. The Awakening will come out of local congregations – the ones that have taught, and trained their people to pray.
We’ve been a praying church, and so there is a hunger for holiness. It’s a hunger for God. God is holy; to be holy is to want to be in God, with God, like God. Dwell with Him, walk with Him. It’s a hunger for real truth, Bible purity before God.
They will run into those houses of worship where the glory of God is residing and hanging heavy, and they’ll say: “Clean, clean, clean, oh to be clean, to be clean, to be clean”, and they’ll run into that atmosphere, My Blood will cleanse them from the top of the head to the soles of their feet, and My Word will take root on the inside of them. This local church is headed for a Holy Ghost wake up call. It’s on us now.
We’re right on track, for the prophecy that came through Kenneth Copeland: It’s the Year of the local church, and those places are where the glory will fall first, and where the awakening will come. The power-release will be there.
2Thus says the Lord of hosts: These people say, The time is not yet come that the Lord’s house should be rebuilt (Haggai 1:2 AMPC).
God is saying it actually now is the time.
I say: I come join this party. I come and join what God is doing here. This feast, this blessing, this abundant overflow, this time, this move of God; I come and join it. This is a good time, this is a blessed time.
If ever there was time to not live in the realm of reason, relevance and reality; it’s now because God is bypassing COVID. Now is the time to walk in redemption, by revelation that we bring you, and we will all have a revolution; together.
I say: Pastor John and Sharon entrust me to the care of the Lord, the message that they brought, for it can build me up and give me an inheritance among all those who have been set apart by God.
