I Will Take The Children Part 9 – Ps John (JHB)
Scripture references: Proverbs 3:5-10 AMPC; Proverbs 1:33 AMPC; Matthew 7:9-11 AMPC; Matthew 7:7-11 TPT
Good news: We have been declaring the Word of the Lord that Brother Jerry spoke to us that supernatural increase is ours and that He’s opening new doors. And so certainly we have experienced that in some very beautiful and amazing ways as a ministry. I’m happy to report to you that we have had absolutely no decrease in our income as a ministry over this time, on the contrary, based on a year on year basis, it looks like as we’re heading towards the end of our calendar year, we may very well increase our income of the previous year.
Unexpected Supernatural Income If that’s not supernatural then I don’t know what is given the times that we are living in. We have received channels of income that have been unexpected. And not even from people in the ministry. Not even people that come to our church. Organisations have given us money that we did not even know why. Isn’t that amazing? Hallelujah. It means the Word works when you speak it, then you believe it the Word works.
Brother Jerry has been believing God that he would fly a falcon 50. Well, he’s in the process of taking over a falcon 50. In a year when it didn’t seem like supernatural increase was possible so that he could go and buy a jet. God has done miracles because he believed the Word that God spoke through him. Praise the Lord!
Brother Jerry to visit South Africa I started to get phone calls from Brother Joe and messages from Brother Jerry and suddenly they were talking to me about coming to visit South Africa in January. He has other places to travel but England and Australia are imposing stricter lockdown, so we’re going get him first. I said, “Well make sure that you can get here.” We’ve done our investigations and even if he wanted to come now, he could actually come now on his private jet, you. So then I understood what’s happening, getting his jet he wants to fly by himself to here, first journey to where he has an office. And so all the other offices are closed. So we’re going to get him first. A few things need to happen but we are a praying church, we are the believing church. So why not us? Especially us, we are favoured of God. Hallelujah.
The Bible is a God contract I brought this leather Bible with me today, to show you that this is the Holy Bible. The words that are written in this Bible are the words that come from the very presence of God. These words are more valuable, more precious, have more energy, have more future in them than any housing contract that you’ve signed, whether it be a purchase agreement, or lease agreement or any other written contract in your world.
A worldly contract: If you have a contract where you purchased a car and you’re making a monthly payment on the car, and you skip a payment, they’re going to phone you because they have a digital contract with you, that has an automatic trigger. So if payment is not made against that contract, that trigger causes someone to call you to say “Hey, you owe money on this contract.” And then if you don’t make that payment, and you skip another payment then the telephone calls get more frequent, and they get more serious. And then by the third, or the fourth non-payment, you’re having conversations about you may not be driving this car very long. Do you believe those contracts have got power? They do. They’ve got teeth.
We are the beneficiaries of God’s contract. Do you think that this contract that God has with us has any less power? This God contract has an Old Covenant and a New Covenant, it’s written Old and New Testament. It is a contract that God has with Himself for which we are the beneficiaries. These words that God has given us have a lot more teeth, and a lot more power than any contract that exists on this earth. Why? Because God made a contract with Himself, between Him and Jesus, He made a contract in the death and the resurrection of Jesus. If you believe in the words of this contract, then you can have everything that this contract says you can have. So to put it in a different way, this contract says you can have a new car, which Jesus has paid for. All you have to do is believe in the words that He says, and you can collect your car. What I’m highlighting to you today is 100% truth. I’m telling you now, Jesus says you can have a car, which He has paid for. You don’t have to actually go and rent one from a financial institution until it’s paid off. You can have a car and it’s paid for.
I’m challenging the Babylon system that is in your thinking right now. Because in your thinking, your Babylonian mindset says this is not possible that God is taking care of a motorcar for me in the Bible. Debt free.
What does it take? So is it possible or isn’t it possible? What does it take to get a car from God without paying for it? Well, first of all, you have to believe this contract. If you don’t believe this contract, then you can never have what this contract says. This contract doesn’t ask you to sign on the dotted line, and nobody’s coming to you every week to say, have you fulfilled the terms of the contract? You don’t necessarily think this contract has as much power. Matthew chapter six speaks about all the animals and the birds of the air and everything they need is taken care of. You have need of food, you have need of clothing, you have a need of shelter. How much more will the Heavenly Father take care of you? He says; Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all of these things, what things? The things you need to eat, to wear to drink, the shelter. Everything will be given to you besides, what is the besides portion? That’s just the beginning of what’s in the contract. When you get all these things that are supposed to be just given to you by the contract, then your eyes will be open to see what else is available to you, based on that contract.
Connected to Babylon Does that contract become null and void with COVID-19? Certainly, the enemy of God will try and use it to bring you into the realm of thinking that this contract is less powerful than COVID-19. But this contract, the New Testament, the Old Testament, the Old Covenant, and the New Covenant is more powerful than any situation and circumstance that you find yourself. The problem is that we have become so connected to the way that the Babylonian system works around us in the world. And the authenticity of it and the availability of everything that we have need of in the system, that we don’t go to God with His contract. He’s the second choice because life doesn’t move on. Life doesn’t move forward if you don’t have a car. So I’ve got to have my life, move forward, so I better go get a car from the Babylonian system, so that I can move forward. He becomes the second choice.
The enemy has been hard at work All of us are God’s children and the enemy of God been hard at work to take us captive into a system so that we don’t have the freedom to follow God’s system. So if he’s captured your mind and captured your emotions and captured your thoughts about your future, then he’s captured your potential to live as a child of God. So when God says, “I will take the children,” the enemy of God says, “I want you to sacrifice yourself and your children to me.”
5 Lean on, trust in and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or your own understanding. This is as plain as you can make it. Either you are going to rely on your own insight and your own understanding or you are going to rely on God. God’s contract or the world’s contract? 6 In all your ways recognize and acknowledge Him and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. He will do it. This is His contract with you. If you recognize Him, you acknowledge Him and you give Him your ways, He will make your ways plain, straight and smooth. He will, that is what the Bible says, there is no confusion here. Any confusion that we experience in life does not come from God, it comes from the pull of the world system, of what we want versus what God says you need to do, “Follow Me, My plan for you is what will stand eternal.”
Be not wise in your own eyes You people, educated ones, are living in wealth and comfort as you do. You people have your lives all planned out, you people.
7 Be not wise in your own eyes. Because if you’re wise in your own eyes, then by default, you’re not going to acknowledge Him in all your ways. You’re not going to lean on Him, you’re not going to trust in Him because you are wise in your own eyes. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes, reverently, fear and worship the Lord and turn entirely away from evil. What’s the evil He’s talking about? Come on, you wise people?
What the world system says; This is completely contrary to what the world system will teach you. The world system says, “You should get more knowledge, more education, you should be more well trained, more everything.” People in the world system think that that system is the way to go. Who do you think they’re getting their projection plans for the future from? You think they are seeking God for how the education system should look? Do you think they’re seeking God for what the economic plan for our nation is? No, they are all about the wisdom of their own, their own ways. I wonder what would happen if God could say what He wants for this nation. I wonder what would happen to South Africa.
God raised up a man for South Africa: God did have His say about this nation. He raised up a man, on an island and he was released from prison, he held absolutely no malice, no unforgiveness in his heart because he knew God, he knew the ways of God. In his own eyes, he was not wise but he took the wisdom of God. And he said, if I have a grudge against these people that imprisoned me, and they have stolen my whole life from me, if I have anything against them, offences, grudges or anything, then everybody else’s future will be destroyed because of me. God raised up a man to say and walk in forgiveness towards all men and embrace unity. There had to be another man who was also being used by God. And he was willing to give up power, and he was willing to give up everything that the National Party had worked all those years. He was the prime minister and everything was rosy for him. It reached the pinnacle of politics in a country that was very wealthy. Certainly, there wasn’t another African nation that could compete with South Africa at that point, he was the pinnacle of the politics and economic system of that time. And yet FW de Klerk had God move on his heart, while he was going about accumulating power in his own party. In the back of his mind, you can read his story. He never told anybody that God had already placed it on his heart. The only way you can get power to everybody is to be in power, then hold a referendum with all the peoples. But you can’t even tell your national party about it, because they won’t elect you if you tell them. This is why he and Nelson Mandela both got Nobel Peace Prize jointly, because it took two of them to intervene in this nation.
Our prayer for our president We sit here today, enjoying the fruits, the benefits and the joy of having that. I do believe that our current president Cyril Ramaphosa is a man of God, I know he’s a believer. And our prayer for him is that he will be unrestrained by politics and by corruption and he can follow the will of God and he can put South Africa on the path that it needs to be because it affects all of us.
READ Proverbs 3:6-10 (AMPC)
Honour the Lord with your capital, and your sufficiency, which means all of the income that comes into your life, all of the all of the money from all of the sources that you have honour God with that. The capital and sufficiency from righteous labour. My faith is out there with Brother Jerry and I took his word seriously, that it doesn’t matter what happens with Covid, supernatural increase is happening to us.
What is God’s contract with you? I will give you such fullness in your life, such abundance, such overflowing that you will not be able to have enough storage places – it will just keep overflowing. So when your finances overflow like that, I ask you, can you go and buy a car cash? Now your contract is no longer about the Babylon system.
33 But whoso hearkens to me [Wisdom] shall dwell securely and in confident trust and shall be quiet, without fear or dread of evil. (Proverbs 1:33 AMPC)
I honour You Lord If you are listening to the contract, you’re putting it in your heart and in your mind, so that anytime, anywhere, any place, the only thing that comes out of your mouth are the terms of the contract. God says “My contract has more teeth than any other contract that you signed, because I have declared it.” You can quote the contract to God every day, every hour and say, I’m a tither, I honour You Lord with my substance and with my increase. Honour is in my heart for You and in my mind, my money flows out of my honour, I command that You fulfill the side of Your contract, through the blood of Jesus, I command that money to comes in, and that my vats be full, and my storage places be full. I commanded it to be so.
Be persistent So what’s this got to do with I will take the children? Well, here’s the thing, if we have this kind of conversation in our house with our children, where we are honest with our children, that we’d be living in a Babylon system, that we need to be living in a God system. We are at least liberating them to live God’s way, rather than to perpetuate the way that we’ve lived. It’s time for us to be able to speak to our children and say, we have been partly captured by Babylon. What we need to say is that we want to live in God’s system. Be persistent. 7 “Ask, and the gift is yours. Seek, and you’ll discover. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 For every persistent one will get what he asks for.
8 For every persistent one will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he longs for. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door. (Matthew 7:7-8 TPT)
9 “Do you know of any parent who would give his hungry child, who asked for food, a plate of rocks instead? 10 Or when asked for a piece of fish, what parent would offer his child a snake who would bite him instead? 11 If you, imperfect as you are. Are you perfect parents? Well, of course, you’re perfect. In your own eyes, you’ve made every decision for your children perfectly.
The Bible says we are imperfect: I’m imperfect in the way I raised my kids. There were many times I had to face them and look in their eyes and ask them to forgive me. Because there were times in my life where I had lived in a way that was contrary to the Word of God. As I grew in the Word, and I saw how I had been mistaken, I repented before God. I had to repent before my kids and say; I’m going to endeavour to change my life to live according to those revelations. The repentance in my heart is true. So then my imperfection is made perfect in Him, my weaknesses made strong in Him.
READ Matthew 7:9-11 (TPT) If you think you’ve got good things for your kids, how much more does God have in mind for your kids. It’s in the contract.
It’s right here in the contract. So what does this have to do with “I will take the children?” There is no better person that you could give your kids to than the owner of this contract. I’m working with my children and grandchildren. Brynn will tell you that I’ve worked with him. For years we worked in partnership so that mistakes that were made in the past can be covered with the blood of Jesus and redemption. We have worked together to make sure things for his daughter and his relationship could be redeemed. And I’m working with my son and my daughter in law, so that all of what we see in the Word, that God desires for their lives, that we can live in a place of redemption with them, greater than what I walked in.
I will take the children: I can speak along with the prophet of this house, when I say these words, on behalf of God, I will take the children. God is after the children of this house. He’s after your future. He has a much better future for you than the Babylonian system. If you give God the first fruit, then all the fruit is blessed. If you don’t give God the first fruit, then it means the trust is firmly in you and in what you do. So you trust you more than you trust God and then by implication, you’re part of the Babylonian system. So I prayerfully and affectionately deliver this message to you today. Because my affection for all of you is great. My love for you is huge.
Prayer: Put your hand on your heart and say this with me. I am a son of God and I thank You Jesus, that from this day I am free. I am free from my past and free from myself and free from my baggage and I’m free to serve You. I thank You, as a son of God, I can live in contract and you enforce the terms of the contract with the power of the Holy Spirit. I thank You Lord, I receive it today in Jesus’ name.
