Finance & Healing

Released by Pastor John Bendixen on Sunday, 11 August 2019


“But this morning, when I was spending time with the Lord, a strong prophetic mantle dropped on me and I have to obey God now based on what He told me to do this morning”. “He told me to read this Scripture over us today and I want you to understand something that when He talks about camels and sheep and goats and vineyards and produce, He is talking about business transactions, companies, money, deals, sales, opportunities. He’s talking about all manner of productivity”.

Isaiah 60:1-22 NKJV, I1Arise, shine, for my light has come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon me. 2For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, it shall touch people around me and deep darkness the people, but the Lord will arise over me. I’m not moved by the economic circumstances that are being spoken about in this nation and continent. The light of Jesus has come to shine and rise upon me and I can have economic prosperity wherever there is economic downturn. And His glory will be seen upon me. 3The gentiles shall come to my light. And kings to the brightness of my rising. CEOs and managing directors and entrepreneurs are going to come to me to find out what the solutions are because they will not understand how God is blessing me in these days. Kings are going to come to me.

4Lift up my eyes all around and see. They all gather together they come to me. My sons shall come from afar. Streams of income and opportunity are going to come to me. And my daughters shall be nursed at my side. Raising new opportunities around me. 5Then I shall see and become radiant and my heart shall swell with joy because the abundance of the seas (of economics) shall be turned to me, and the wealth of the gentiles shall come to me. 6The multitude of camels shall cover my land and the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah all those from Sheba shall come from everywhere, from the US, from the UK, from Australia, from South America they shall come to me. They shall bring gold and incense; all manner of beautiful things shall come and they shall proclaim the praises of the Lord. 7All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to me. The rams of Nebaioth shall minister to me. They shall ascend with acceptance on God’s alter and He will glorify the house of His glory. That’s us. 8Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their roosts? 9Surely, the coastlands shall wait for Him and the ships of Tarshish will come first to bring my sons from afar, their silver and gold with them, to the name of the Lord my God and to the Holy One of Israel, because He has glorified me. 10The sons of foreigners shall build up my walls and their kings shall minister to me. For in His wrath He struck me but in His favour, He has had mercy on me. If I’m going wrong, this is a picture of me, You are going to discipline me and then You’re going to favour me. I take the discipline so I can get the favour.

11Therefore, my gates shall be opened continually. They shall not be shut day or night that men may bring to me the wealth of the gentiles and their kings in procession. They’re going to stand lined up to do business with me. 12For the nation and kingdom which will not serve me shall perish and those nations shall surely be utterly ruined. 13The glory of Lebanon shall come to me. The Cyprus, the pine, the box tree together to beautify the place of God’s sanctuary and He will make the place of His feet glorious. 14Also, the sons of those who afflicted me shall come bowing to me. If people don’t want to do business with me, eventually, they are going to come and hand me their business. This is what God moved upon Pastor John this morning.14And all those who despise me shall fall prostrate at the soles of my feet and they shall call me the city of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. 15Whereas I have been forsaken and hated, so that no one went through me, God will make me an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations. What God’s busy with us here, is not just for us. It’s for the generations to come. God needs us as a people to stand for our message, and the way we’ve created relationships, based on the Word of God, we are not a church that is a programme driven church. We are not a church that is about hype, and all kinds of manner of things. We are a church that is based on the Word of God. We are a church based on the relationship we have with God, and we have a relationship with each other in God. It’s a generational church this. 

16 I shall drink the milk of the Gentiles, and milk the breast of kings; I shall know that He, the Lord, is my Savior and my Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. 17 Instead of bronze He will bring gold, instead of iron He will bring silver, instead of wood, bronze, and instead of stones, iron. In other words, productivity from the little to the great. From the insignificant to the abundant, magnificent. He will also make my officers peace, and my magistrates’ righteousness. 18Violence shall no longer be heard in my land, Neither wasting nor destruction within my borders; But I shall call my walls Salvation, And my gates Praise. God the Glory of His People: 19The sun shall no longer be my light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to me; But the Lord will be to me an everlasting light, and my God my glory. I will not live by the natural things I can see. I’ll be driven by the supernatural things that God will show me. I’ll not be driven by human vision, I will be driven by God’s-vision. I’ll not be driven by human economics, I’ll be driven by God-economics. 20My sun shall no longer go down, nor shall my moon withdraw itself; For the Lord will be my everlasting light, And the days of my mourning shall be ended.  21And also my people shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of God’s planting, the work of His hands, that He may be glorified. 22A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation. He, the Lord, will hasten it in its time. A little one – a little one. If I feel like I’ve got to start a business deal that’s just a small business deal, it isn’t, I just think of it as a “little one” or a “small one” because not very far from now it’s going to become a great thing. (The television coming to look for Pastor John is an example of a small one becoming a great thing. “But suddenly, a small one became a nation, a little one became a thousand”).

(Isaiah 61:1-11 KJV), 1The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, 3To console those who mourn in Zion, to give me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that I may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. 4And I shall rebuild the old ruins, I shall raise up the former desolations, and I shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. 5Strangers shall stand and feed my flocks, and the sons of the foreigner shall be my plowmen and my vinedressers. 6But I shall be named the priests of the Lord, they shall call me the servants of my God. I shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory I shall boast. 7Instead of my shame I shall have double honour, and instead of confusion I shall rejoice in my portion. Therefore in my land I shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be mine. 8For God, the Lord, love justice; He hates robbery for burnt offering; He will direct my work in truth, and will make with me an everlasting covenant. 9My descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and my offspring among the people. All who see us shall acknowledge us, that we are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed. 10I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations (Isaiah 61:1-11 NKJV).

Make it personal and speak it every day: “Now I want to tell you that this is the Word the Lord gave me this morning. And He said He is going to reverse things, and He’ is going to restore things. I just got through reading this passage of scripture, that those things that have been laid waste, those things that have been broken down, He is going to bring them back to their original state, which means He reverses them and He restores them. Hallelujah. I’m going to encourage you to take this passage of Scripture, put in whatever you want to do there in terms of camels and goats and all kinds of people coming from Tarsus, you call your city, call the town, call your business, call your whatever and write it out for yourself. Type it out for yourself, whatever you want to do. And make it as a declaration, and begin to speak this over your life every day”.

  Instruction of the Lord – Pastor John lays hands and prays for people who have significant and serious sickness and disease in their bodies. “Now, this is just the way the Lord uses this vessel. The way I pray over these people, just because they’re not falling over, just because there is no outward demonstration, that there are all kinds of stuff happening, doesn’t mean to say that they have not received their healing. They have received their healing in Jesus’ name. They have received their healing. Hallelujah”.

The people prayed for lay hands on all the people who have any manner of sickness and disease. “The Bible says, if you are a believer, you can lay hands on the sick and they will recover. It doesn’t need me, it just needs a believer. If you are a believer, then you can be healed and you can pray for the sick and they shall recover”.

Faith in the healing God: “So, here’s what the Lord told me this morning. He said to me, “John, I don’t want people to have faith in the God that is in you. I want them to have faith in the Healing God.” And He works through any vessel He chooses. He will work through that vessel”. 

Not one sick among us: “I’m believing that there will not be one sick among you, not one sick, not one sick among, not one sick, not one, not one, not one, not one, not a single one, not a single one in Jesus’ name.”

Debt free: “I want to tell you if you have got yourself into a bad financial situation that you need debt reversal I am here to tell you, the Lord spoke to me this morning and he said: “I am going to reverse your circumstances, I’m going to reverse you out of debt supernaturally if you will believe me and put the Word of God in your heart.” He’s going to reverse your bad decisions; He’s going to restore your life. How’s that possible? I don’t ask God how he’s going to fix things. I just know that he can and that He will. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Glory to Jesus. Glory to Jesus. Wow!”

Pastor John prays for couples that want to be pregnant in the next 12 months.
