Journey To New Discoveries Part 16 Source And Resource – Ps John Bendixen (WTB)
36 But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. Jesus is saying, “I’m connected to My Source (the Father). My whole life has become a resource, so your whole life can turn to the Source.” Even when you lose the resource or the energy of your life, God will restore it.
Our challenge as a church and as a people is that we see ourselves as the source and that we can do better than the Source.
I’m quoting from a book: In the church, so many in this upcoming generation have very little grasp, if any, of the Bible. Additionally, there is a culture war we are being dragged into. It is a war over ideals and affects the very souls of our children and our children’s children. So many before us fought for a better tomorrow, only to see this present generation walk all over their sacrifice… I have a desire to remind the people of God where they come from and what could be, if they only stand up and take it! We are living in a time after generals of faith and when many heroes from history are gone and largely remembered no more… If we do not know the foundation of a thing, we are destined to disrespect it or disregard it.
We have a general of faith coming to visit us. And we do not disrespect or disregard the generals that have gone before us, we embrace them. We will not be a generation that is toothless, we are going to be a generation that is dangerous. We are going to continue in the legacy of the generals who gave a lot and sacrificed a lot.
There is a system of darkness in the world, ruled by the god of darkness. You want to know why you’re fed up with corporate life and its politics, and the politics of government, and the ineffectiveness of government, and the inefficiency of things, and the way that you have to slog every day, every year to earn the kind of living that you have to make? The reason you are frustrated is because it is the system of darkness. Its economy is attempting to keep you in a place of fear and compliance with the spirit of the age that fearfully says, “You’ll never have enough.” ‘THE DARK’ economy is a dependence on self, self-reliance, and this world’s system.
What I’m preaching today is nuclear. It has the potential to nuke all of those strongholds that have been in your mind, all of the devils and the demons of this age that try to control you. If you will receive it, it will blow up everything that the devil’s got his hands into your world, through systems, ideas, philosophies, and ideologies.
Years ago the Lord gave me a revelation about ancient paths, ancient languages, ancient connections that God has for us. Before you were born, God knew you and created an ancient path for you to walk on. The reason why God had to bring you into the earth and purpose your life is because there are also ancient forces that wish to destabilise you. We have to get on our ancient paths and have an ancient language with ancient divine connections that can keep us steady and focused.
I believe that Brother Jerry is coming at the season of our ministry and our time. It is not just a coincidence. You know, all the resources that we need are going to be here for him, for us to be able to meet all of the financial needs
If you want a general to come visit you, the general comes with the things that a general comes with. You don’t dictate to a general what he comes with or how he must come. On the contrary, here’s our opportunity to invest in the God system. We are making a statement that by investing in God’s system, we are being freed from fear of not having enough in a global meltdown economy.
Exodus chapter 32:1 – Moses is delayed on the mountain and so the people asked Aaron to make them a god. He made a golden calf and they worshipped it as the god who brought them out of Egypt. The Israelites were influenced by spirits that were in them that came from Egypt. Those evil spirits could not occupy them under the anointing of the presence of God, but they came with them in their minds and their hearts because they saw those people worshipping gods made by man’s hands. Their truth was based on perception, not truth. Who believes that they can make a graven image and say, “This is the god who brought us out of Egypt?”
Anybody like to see a modern-day golden calf that people worship to? Wall Street bull. The hub of the financial centre of the world. We want this system to tell us what we must do with our money? Where is our security and our trust? Is it in this bull?
I Kings 14:22 (AMPC). 22 And Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, Whom they provoked to jealousy with the sins they committed, above all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built themselves [idolatrous] high places, pillars, and Asherim [idolatrous symbols of the goddess Asherah] on every high hill and under every green tree.
24 There were also sodomites, these are (male cult prostitutes). You think male, female prostitution is just a modern day thing? When you open your world up to idol worship it becomes a common and prominent thing. The perversion of sexuality becomes prevalent and pervasive. Oh, you think you are just making a decision to have sexual promiscuity the way you like? There is a demon spirit that is wanting your body to worship it through sexual behaviour patterns.
1 Kings 14:22-24 (AMPC). Two gods; Baal and Asherah. Baal is the male version of prosperity. Asherah is the female version of fertility and prosperity and eventually, it leads to the queen of sexuality. You want to go and worship at the feet of a bull? You are going to open yourselves up to the false god of sexual promiscuity.
You think choices for money are disconnected from everything else in life? These are ancient spirits that have ancient gods behind that want you to worship at their altars with your money, instead of tithing. God says there is only one God. He is Yahweh, Jehovah, the God who is more than enough, the provider. He is the only one and living God. Worship Him, seek Him first and His way of doing things, His righteousness, and all these things that the other world promises through performance, He will give to you through power. The power of obedience, it is the power of worship, the power of giving Him the place in your life.
God says, “I am a jealous God. I am looking for your heart.” He gave His only begotten Son, so that He could redeem you to Himself, not to share you with other gods. To those who diligently seek Him, He is the rewarder. He rewards us with His presence. “I am that I am. Everything that I am belongs to Me and I give it to you.” If you are connected to the Source, then all the resource comes to you.
“Pastor John, what are you talking about?” I’m going nuclear because I’ll tell you what you’ve got; you have got a general that’s coming here, you have a legacy. God has positioned your pastor with one of the greatest generals of faith in the body of Christ ever to walk this earth. He has connected us in lineage to Jerry Savelle, Kenneth Copeland, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Smith Wigglesworth, John G. Lake.
God has placed in your community, in this nation, to this people, He has placed a pastor who not only honours and respects and highly regards the men that I’m connected to, but God has placed with us a mantle, a mandate to stand as a true Kingdom Church, an Ecclesia before God – as a ruling, reigning, governing assembly.
If your heart is with money, it’s going to be consumed by the god of sexual fantasies and sexuality. It’s going to be consumed with all kinds of sicknesses and diseases that come by demon spirits that want to consume the body that God gave you.
Psalm chapter 40:1-2, 1 I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. God has brought this nuclear message so that He can nuke all of the bad stuff that the devil has brought into your life. He can raise you up, and He can steady your feet, and He can take you out of the mud and all of the clay and He says, “Give Me your heart, son and daughter.”
Don’t start with a decision about tomorrow. Start with ‘yes’ today and let tomorrow take care of tomorrow. The devil lies to us all of the time and says, “Well, you have let yourself down so many times.”. Well, this is a nuclear moment. All of your yes’s and no’s that you have faulted on before, God is going nuclear with it.
There is not another god, there is no bull in Wall Street that is caring for you like God, the Almighty God, cares for you. He thinks about you. He has got His eye on you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Wall Street will let you down but Jesus will never.
The Lord is saying, “Go more nuclear, John. We need more nuclear stuff going on here because I need a younger generation of people to take on this nuclear spirit and you send them out as mini-nuclear atomic bombs that go out there and they start blowing up sacred holy cows everywhere they go.” It’s the only way we’re going to survive what’s coming.
The world system doesn’t have any answers for us in going forward. The Bible says, before the return of the Lord, things are going to have to get worse before they’ll get better. The world system is going to get worse, it’s going to devour itself. You don’t want to be putting your trust in that thing. So yes, we can connect to it, and we can suck all of its money out of it. Come on, we’re going to suck all of the resources that are in the world system, we are going to suck it right out into the hands of God, into the Kingdom of God, we suck it right out with our faith. Our faith overcomes and makes those institutions kneel to us.
