Highest Level Conference Part 5 – Dr Jerry Savelle (WTB)
40 …[the time shall come] when you will grow restive… (Genesis 27:40 AMPC)
Restive means restless, dissatisfied, and fed up.
When you get fed up you take action. The moment you get fed up is when you are going to break that yoke from your neck. If you are not living the glorious way of living, then maybe it is time for you to get fed up. Nobody is to blame but you. You are the reason you’re not living the good life. Take responsibility for yourself. Be honest with yourself to say, “It is my fault”.
Now, you are ready to move on.
If you want to move on and enter into the realm of this glorious way of living, and actually enjoy this good life that God has prearranged for you, this is what you need to do:
– take responsibility for it
– receive it by faith
– pursue it by establishing a goal for it
– stay focused on that goal.
– never give up.
Say: I’m supposed to be living the good life, the glorious life. I am not accepting anything less. I’m going there. I praise God in advance for taking me there.
If you don’t mix your faith with what you are hearing, you won’t see the results of it. Mix your faith with the Gospel so that it will profit you. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Cast every negative thought down and pay attention to the Word preached.
There is nothing more powerful than a focused life. Focused people see their goals become reality.
I say (with Brother Jerry): I am a goal-oriented person. I am a focused person. I am not easily distracted. I am unwavering in my faith. I refuse to give up. God honours that in my life. It’s a lifestyle. It’s not something I do occasionally. It describes the way I live all the time 24/7. Now, I’ve got my eye on the goal to go to the next level and to experience the maximum and the highest level attainable. I press toward it. I am off and running. I am not looking back. (Philippians 3:14 KJV & MSG).
If the past was good, keep praising God for it. If it wasn’t, forget it. Quit looking back, don’t let it hang over you, and don’t let it prevent you from reaching your new goal. Focus on the new goal. God wants you to be a winner in every facet of your life.
It is my responsibility as the apostolic authority to hear from God and set a vision to create a goal for every believer. I entered this dimension of my ministry in 1991 after Brother Copeland prophesied over me. I set aside October and ask the Lord what’s on His agenda for the coming new year. I receive the Prophetic Word, get it printed, and preach it around the world. Every year that Prophetic Word that the Lord has given me since 1991 has come to pass in my life. Now we’re in a new year, we’ve got a new goal, we’re going for the maximum, we’re going for the highest level attainable.
2 Write the vision, make it plain. So, he that reads it can run with it (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV).
Write the vision out. When you establish a goal, it helps you stay focused. See the Prophetic Word everywhere you go to remind you. Soon you will be talking it, and soon you will have the results. But you have to take responsibility for doing it yourself.
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish (Proverbs 29:18 AMP).
Where there is no prophetic oracle from God the people cast off restraint. Restraint means casting off discipline or the will and the determination to persevere. The Prophetic word is designed by God to motivate you and keep you focused.
Christianity doesn’t come easy. If there was any other way to achieve what the Bible says is available to us, don’t you think that in 54 years I would have figured it out? The Bible’s way is to walk by faith, take your stand, refuse to waver, and determine that you will persevere no matter how long it takes. Suddenlies are rare. It is having done all to stand, stand. I have become an expert in the art of standing. I just don’t quit. I just don’t back off. I just absolutely refuse to allow the devil to win. I know what it is like to feel I can’t take any more, this is a waste of time, and nothing is happening. But you must cast down those thoughts and make up your mind once and for all that quitting is not an option. I’ve heard so many times what Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, TL Osbourne, Kenneth Copeland, and John Osteen have preached. It is deep down in my spirit. What they have preached worked and it is still working.
In 2004 the Lord appeared to me and said, “My people know Me as Savior. Some know Me as Baptiser in the Holy Ghost. Some know Me as Healer. Some know Me as Deliver. But they don’t all know Me as the God of the Breakthrough. If they did, then they wouldn’t be so quick to give up. Tell them the God of the Breakthrough wants to visit their house. Tell the people the intensity of your praise will determine the magnitude of your breakthrough.”
How desperate are you for a major breakthrough? How desperate are you to reach your goal, maximum and the highest level attainable? The intensity of your praise in advance will determine the magnitude of your breakthrough.
18…But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed (Proverbs 29:18).
The word attend here means to give heed to, and to direct one’s mind, one’s thoughts, and one’s energy to what has been said. When you’re willing and determined to do this, then you can expect the fulfillment of that prophetic oracle of God.
14 I press… (Philippians 3:14).
In other words, he’s determined, he’s got his mindset, and he has become resolute. You might say that turning back, or giving up is not an option. One meaning of press is to keep on keeping on.
Successful people are willing to do what unsuccessful people aren’t willing to do. One of the things is to keep pressing and to do what they don’t feel like doing when they know they need to do it.
7… his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord (Psalms 112:7, AMPC).
This man’s heart is established, fixed, trusting in the Lord, unfazed, unperturbed: never flustered, nor bothered by negative things that are happening around him, unwavering, marked by a firm determination, unshakable, unwilling to accept failure and defeat.
Let’s run, let’s win, and let’s not give up just because it looks like it’s all over and there is no way in the natural to achieve this goal. God is expecting us to: set the goal, stay focused, and never give up.
26 I don’t know about you, but I’m running hard to for the finish line. I’m giving it everything I’ve got (1 Corinthians 9:26 MSG).
Abraham stuck it out and got everything that God had promised to him (Hebrews 6:15 MSG).
If you are willing to stick it out, then I’ve got good news for you. You are about to run your victory lap. Hold up your right hand, act like you are waving a flag, and say, That’s my victory lap. I am waving my flag. I’m about to take my victory lap. Then go on and praise Him some more.
36 You need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion (Hebrews 10:36 MSG).
I say: This message was sent from heaven for me. I receive the Word with faith. I am getting ready to run my victory lap. I do what the Holy Ghost told us to do: outbursts of joy and laughter. God is making it happen for me. Praise the Lord, hallelujah.
When I was still a conservative Christian I went to a camp meeting by Brother Hagin, I believe it was in 1989. I saw four people get out of a wheelchair in different levels of healing. The auditorium filled with 10-15 thousand people went crazy. I said, “Lord, I wish I could do what they are doing”. He said, “You can, just give it all you’ve got.” I shut my eyes, threw up my hands, and screamed the loudest I had ever in a church, and I praised God. It was like He put His hand inside of my spirit, down here, and He pulled a plug out of my spirit, and rivers of life burst through my mouth, out of my life. Since then, I’ve never been the same; I can dance, I can shout, I can run. Since then I can do anything in the Spirit! I can tell you that I am not a conservative man anymore. I am filled with the Holy Ghost and with fire.
The church is supposed to be this loud. Some of the greatest victories Pastor Sharon and I ever had is just the two of us doing this thing in our lounge shouting and screaming. When you need God to show up, then you’ve got to do it yourself. This is just a practice run.
