Good morning, Heritage of Faith people, everywhere. Welcome to Sunday morning service. Pastor John and I, send all of our love, our earnest heartfelt love, to every single one of you. All the boys, all the girls, all the little ones, all the teenagers, all the young ones, all the middle-aged ones, all the mature ones, we just send all of our heartfelt love.
Well, we’re assembled together, Pastor John and I, every Sunday morning, we’re ready at five to nine to come to church, hallelujah. This is how we’re assembling together right now and on Tuesday nights we are ready at five to, to come to be at PCG. Please do join us, so that we can all know that we are really all assembling together at the same time. It’s just really, there’s a bond there and there’s something that happens there, knowing that we’re all together at the same time.
I wanted to just read something to you, before I start this wonderful message that God has given me for you. I wanted to start by reading something that Pastor John and I got the one morning, just together actually, we were just talking about supernatural increase, on the 14th of April, during lockdown on Tuesday, and it goes like this. All of the supernatural increase of this year will remain and then it will increase again and again, in Jesus name. This supernatural increase, through this new open door is not going to go away, it’s here to stay, because Jesus is the one who’s opened this door and nothing will be as it was before. Even time as we have known it, will seem to stand still, for things that will happen now, will be God’s will. This is His time, He will have His way, His say and full sway. This supernatural increase, it will not cease, it will be unmistakably, undeniably, recognizable, and identifiable upon His many sons of glory. This is His time and He is writing the story. These are sons who hold fast their confession, their faith reaching its supreme expression, precious is their faith, to them. They remain in it, and obtain full possession. I thought you would really like that. I wanted to just share that with you, Glory to God.
The title of my message this morning, I’m continuing, it’s part six of Having Therefore Boldness that the Lord told me to minister on this year. The title of this morning’s message is: Bold in His Goodness.
Let’s just pray together, right now. Father, we come in absolute honour and reverence, for Your Word this morning. We open up our hearts together, listening together to Your Word. We open up our hearts to receive, and to believe, and to bear the fruits of this Word that we will receive, this Good News, Father, of being bold in Your goodness, Lord. We, thank You for giving us ongoing revelation, that is our conversation Father, and that leads us into action, all the time, In Jesus’ Name. And we all say; Amen. Amen.
I’m going to be reading you our key scripture out of Hebrews 10 verse 19 to 23. I want you to see the context, this morning, 19Therefore, brethren… this is the King James Bible… 19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, … Can you see that the boldness that we enter into the Holiest, is with faith, 22… having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience… Why? Because we know how to deal with an evil conscience, when the accuser wants to accuse us… and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:19-23, NKJV).
In the same chapter in verse 38 it says, 38Now the just shall live by faith; …. So this boldness has got everything to do with faith… 38Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” (Hebrews 10:38, NKJV). Why? Because we were created to live by faith, and not to live by unbelief; in unbelief and doubt His word.
Another key scripture for us today is, Psalm 27:13. Remember the title of the message today, Bold in His Goodness. Psalm 27:13, Amplified Bible says, 13[What, … and then again, 13[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! (Psalm 27:13, AMPC). What? What? What? What? What would have become of me, if I had not believed, that I would see goodness, in the land of the living and that’s where God wants us to experience His goodness, in the land of the living?
Not when we die and go to heaven, one day. He wants to show us how powerful and mighty He is through His covenant with us and how good He is. He wants us to experience His goodness in the land of the living. Glory to God. I’m so glad I’m alive at this time and alive to be able to be living by faith.
Another key scripture for us today, is from the Passion Translation and its John 20 verse 29, 29Jesus responded, “Thomas, now that you’ve seen me, you believe. But there are those who have never seen me with their eyes but have believed in me with their hearts, and they will be blessed even more!” (John 20:29, TPT). We’re talking about believing the goodness of God. What would have become of me, if I had not believed that I would see the goodness of God, in the land of the living? Being bold in His goodness. Hallelujah. Thomas, you’ve seen me, now you believe, but there are those, and I’m one of those. How about you, Heritage of Faith? There are those who have never seen me with their physical eyes, but have believed in me with their hearts, and they will be blessed even more!” (John 20:29 TPT)
Psalm 85 verse 8. I am going to give you the message that God has given me to give to you today. Psalm 85:8, “8Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints, to those who turn to Him in their hearts.” (Psalm 85:8 RSV) That is the RSV translation.
The Lord spoke to my heart, for us at Heritage of faith, on Sunday 29th of March, day three of lockdown. He began to speak to me, and tell me about Heritage of Faith people. I am going to read to you from Revelations chapter three, Amplified Bible, just as He gave it to me. 7And to the (messenger) of the (church) in Philadelphia write this: This is a report that God gave to me about the Heritage of Faith people. He might as well have said this. And to the messenger, Pastor John, of the church, Heritage of Faith Church, in Witbank, in Lenasia, in Johannesburg and the Heritage of Faith people. 7…These are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He Who has the key of David, Who opens and no one will shut, Who shuts and no one shall open: 8I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name. 9Take note!… Verse 10 says, 10Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you [safe] from the hour of trial [testing] which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth. (Revelation 3:7-10 AMPC)
How about that? That He would be so pertinent, and so clear with us, that this thing that has come upon the whole earth. I know you, Heritage of Faith people. You have held fast to My message, you have endured. I am going to keep you safe from this time, this hour of trial and testing which has come on the whole world, 10…to try those who dwell upon the earth. 11I am coming quickly. What is He coming quickly with? With all of His answers to all of our strikes, and all of His promises that we are holding fast to at this time. Everything that I spoke to you about, the promises of the tither, the rights of the faithful tither. 11I am coming quickly; with My answers, hold fast to what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown.” (Revelation 3:10-11 AMPC) There is a crown that we have, because we hold fast to the message.
12He who overcomes (is victorious), I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God; that actually, I looked that up, what that means. In one of the bible commentaries it says, If you are a pillar in the House of God, you are one of those, who are alive at that time, in a church that is upholding His Kingdom purposes in the earth. How powerful is that? 12He will make us pillars in the sanctuary of His God. He shall never be put out of it or go out of it, and I will write on him… I said, “Lord whatever this means to You, do it, for all of us, Heritage of Faith people. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which descends from My God out of heaven, and My own new name. (Revelations 3:12 AMPC)I have no idea in my intellect what that means, but my spirit leaps and I say, “Thank You, Lord that we take it all as a people.”
And then it says here, 13He who can hear, let him listen to and heed what the Spirit says to the people (Revelation 3:12-13 AMPC). I’m going to read it out of The Passion Translation, 7Write the following to the messenger of the congregation in Philadelphia, for these are the solemn words of the Holy One, the true one, who has David’s key, who opens doors that none can shut and who closes doors that none can open: 8I know all that you’ve done. Now I have set before you a wide-open door that none can shut. For I know that you possess only a little power, yet you’ve kept my word and haven’t denied my name. 9Watch how I deal with those…
Okay that’s not pertinent but it says here in verse 10, 10Because you’ve passionately kept my message of perseverance, I will also keep you from the hour of proving that is coming to test every person on earth. 11But I come swiftly, so cling tightly to what you have, so that no one may seize your crown of victory. Your crown of victory. 12For the one who is victorious, I will make you to be a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, permanently secure. I will write on you the name of my God and the name of the city of my God—the New Jerusalem, descending from my God out of heaven. And I’ll write my own name on you. 13So the one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is now saying to all the churches (Revelation 3:7-13 TPT).
The Lord began to speak to me about this, and He said this to me, Leviticus 26 and Amos 9. Like I’ve said to you before, He knows what I mean when He speaks a scripture like that to me, because He’s been speaking to me about, out of Leviticus 26 and Amos 9 for many, many years.
He said to me, Leviticus 26 and Amos 9. Now in the light of the new covenant. This is exceptional, He used these words, exceptional, exquisite, extraordinary and excellent. Now you will see what I will do for you. I personally delight in this; I am good and I do good. Wait until I get to Leviticus 26 and Amos 9, you’ll see what He means. I am good and I do good. This man, Pastor John and these people, I have earmarked, chosen, hand-picked and selected to bless abundantly.
We see the proof of that when He writes to the church in Philadelphia at that time. He’s hand-picked and earmarked them for an Open Door and to bless them abundantly. I have opened a New Door especially for you. That’s for you all. To experience Supernatural Increase, to experience it for yourself. For the sake of the covenant blood, for the sake of the covenant blood. Yes I will do it. This increase we are going to experience, is going to be supernatural. Nothing, but supernatural.
I want to remind you what supernatural means. Supernatural means; beyond and exceeding the powers of the laws of nature; relates to the miraculous, supernatural, the Webster says, a supernatural event is one which is not produced according to the ordinary, established laws of natural things. For example; if iron has more specific gravity than water it will sink in that fluid and so the floating of iron on water would be a supernatural event. No human (this is still Webster’s) can alter a law of nature. The floating of iron on water therefore must be caused by divine power specially exerted to suspend, in this instance, a law of nature. This is what supernatural increase refers to.
Child of God listen to what God is saying. Your increase is going to be like this; like the floating of iron on top of the water. It’s going to be, that which is going to happen by the divine immediacy, the agency of God.
Supernatural means supernatural miracles which can be produced only by the immediate agency of the divine power. If you are going to experience divine increase, it’s going to not exist in nature, or be subject to explanation according to natural laws. If you’re going to be experiencing supernatural increase, it’s not going to be because of the physical. It is going to be extraordinary. It’s not visible or measurable, it departs from what is usual and normal. It is transcendent. This word, supernatural, comes from the Latin word so͞opərˈnaCH(ə)rəl. Super meaning above and naCH(ə)rəl which means nature that which we are born with; it comes from natis, born.
It is going to be above, that which you were born with. Your ability that you were born with. I’ve made this declaration. I will experience change, I will experience supernatural increase, beyond the powers of natural laws. I will be experiencing an increase and having growth is an increment that is miraculous. Things will be added to me in extraordinary ways. I’ve taken all the definitions of supernatural and made a confession for myself. More will be given me in ways produced only by the immediate agency of Your divine power. My levels and development will occur above the usual and the natural. My development, insight and understanding is above what can be measured and explained. Your divine power is being exerted on all of my faith strikes. I see all of my faith strikes God is going to miraculously be working so that even, like the iron will float onto the surface of the water. Supernatural is going to be the increase of my strikes. Glory to God.
The things I’m striking for, are only going to increase supernaturally. The ability and limitations I was born with are not going to hinder the strikes from coming forth in any way. And as I give Him my natural with every strike He brings His power to bear on it.
Here I want to show you out of this next scripture, Deuteronomy 11, God Himself is explaining supernatural increase to His people. God wants you to get it, child of God. God wants you to get it. He is intent. He is absolutely focused on His goodness. Supernatural increase, and He wants you to be bold in His goodness toward you. He is explaining supernatural to His very own people, that were then living on the earth. Remember, what would have become of me. 13[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! (Psalm 27:13, AMPC). Those people were living then, and God was explaining to them what He means by supernatural increase.
Deuteronomy 11:10. This is the Amplified Bible. From verse 10, God is saying to them now, “You are going to go into your promised land, houses you didn’t build, wells you didn’t dig, you’re going to be experiencing land of Canaan. 10For the land which you go in to possess is not like the land of Egypt, from which you came out, where you sowed your seed and watered it with your foot laboriously as in a garden of vegetables. 11But the land which you enter to possess is a land of hills and valleys which drinks water of the rain of the heavens, (Deuteronomy 11:10-11, AMPC) Supernatural Increase. He’s got to tell them and teach them, so that faith can come to them, so that they can believe. The land which you enter to possess and I’m speaking to us today.
People, the land which we are going to enter to possess, the Supernatural Increase. which we are going to experience, is not like, we sow our seed and water it laboriously, as in a garden of vegetables. Our Supernatural Increase is going to drink water, of the rain of the heavens. 12A land for which the Lord your God cares; the eyes of the Lord your God are always upon it from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. That’s how I see my 2020. New Open Doors. Supernatural Increase. 13 And if you will diligently heed My commandments which I command you this day—to love the Lord your God and to serve Him with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being. (Deuteronomy 11:12-13, AMPC) That’s all He asks, “Just love Me completely. Just love Me completely, I love you completely.”
If you will; 14 I will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, this is heavenly rain people, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil. (Deuteronomy 11:14, AMPC) That’s increase, supernaturally. 15 And I will give grass in your fields for your cattle that you may eat and be full. 16 Take heed to yourselves, lest your [minds and] hearts be deceived and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, (Deuteronomy 11:15-16, AMPC) He continued to speak to me and to speak to you, “For the sake of the covenant blood, yes, I will do it.”
Zachariah 9, from the New Living Translation, is a portion of scripture that He wants you to meditate on, and He wants your eyes to also see all these scriptures in these messages today. 11Because of the covenant, I made with you, sealed with blood, because of the covenant I made with you, sealed with blood; it’s God talking again. I will free your prisoners from death in a waterless dungeon, 12Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.13Judah is My bow, and Israel is My arrow. Jerusalem is My sword, and like a warrior, I will brandish it against the Greeks…your enemies.
14The Lord will appear above His people; His arrows will fly like lightning! The Sovereign Lord will sound the ram’s horn and attack like a whirlwind from the southern desert. 15The Lord of Heaven’s armies will protect His people, will protect His people, they will defeat, and they will defeat their enemies by hurling great stones. They will shout in battle as though drunk with wine. They will be filled with blood like a bowl, …. (Zechariah 9:11-15 NLT)
This is the covenant blood He is talking about. This is the blood that Jesus was talking about in the book of John, chapter six, when He said, unless you drink My blood and you eat My body, you can have no part of me. He was saying, unless you take from My broken body, and the blood that I shed for you, and appropriate all of My promises to you, appropriate all of the life force of what My blood paid for you for, you can have no part of Me.
Here is a people, here is a people filled with blood like a bowl, 15….drenched with blood like the corners of the altar. 16On that day their God will rescue His people, just as a shepherd rescues his sheep. They will sparkle in His land like jewels in a crown. (Zechariah 9:15-16 NLT).
Does that sound like Malachi three, where He talks about the tither? You are going to be like My special treasure, you’re going to be my, and on that day I am going to make a distinction for you. Here He is talking again, they will sparkle. 16God will rescue His people… They will sparkle in His land like jewels in a crown. 17How wonderful and beautiful they will be! The young men will thrive on abundant grain, young women will flourish on new wine. (Zechariah 9:16-17 NLT). Glory to God.
The Amplified is just magnificent too. It says here; 15The Lord of hosts shall defend and protect them; verse 15, and they shall devour and they shall tread on [their fallen enemies] as on slingstones [that have missed their aim], and they shall drink [of victory] and be noisy and turbulent as from wine and become full like bowls [used to catch the sacrificial blood], like the corners of the [sacrificial] altar. 16And the Lord their God shall save them on that day… that’s this day, As the flock of His people, for they shall be as the [precious] jewels of a crown, lifted high over and shining glittering upon His land. 17For how great is God’s goodness… Verse 17, and how great is His beauty! And how great He will make our goodness and our beauty? (Zechariah 9:15-17 AMPC).
Glory to God. This is nothing but supernatural. Supernatural protection. Supernatural rescue. Supernatural deliverance. Supernatural increase. I’m going to read you Leviticus 26, from the Amplified Bible. This is what He has given us, He has given us all these scriptures I am reading to you today.
This is what He is given us, He is given us all these scriptures I’m reading to you today and Leviticus 26, from the Amplified, 1 You shall make for yourselves, Leviticus 26, Amplified, from verse one, 1 You shall make for yourselves no idols nor shall you erect a graven image, pillar, or a obelisk, nor shall you place any figured stone in your land to which or on which to bow down; for I am the Lord your God. 2 You shall keep My Sabbaths reverence My sanctuary. I am the Lord. 3 If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments and do them, 4 I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field yield their fruit. This is very important, 5And your threshing [time] shall reach to the vintage, I’m going explain what that means, 5 your threshing [time] shall reach to the vintage and the vintage [time] shall reach to the sowing time, and you shall eat your bread to the full and dwell in your land securely. 6 And I will give peace in your land; you shall lie down and none shall fill you with dread or make you afraid; we’re already living in this. (Leviticus 26:1-6 AMPC)
The Word of God, the prophetic Word, has already made us immune from fear. We’re already experiencing this to a level, but this is going to increase in us supernaturally in these times that we are living in. 66…and I will clear ferocious (wild) beasts out of the land, and no sword shall go through your land 7 And you shall chase your enemies, … Yes, that is what we do, we chase our enemies, 7 And you shall chase your enemies, we chase them with the sword of the Word of God and our faith coming out of our mouths, Hallelujah!
7 You shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8 Five of you shall chase a hundred, a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall before you by the sword 9For I will be leaning toward you with favor and regard for you, rendering you fruitful, multiplying you, … This is supernatural increase, ….multiplying you, and establishing and ratifying My covenant with you. 10 And you shall eat the [abundant] old store of produce long kept, and clear out the old [to make room] for the new. 11 I will set My dwelling in and among you, He is already done with that. This is just going to increase people. 11… and My soul shall not despise or reject or separate itself from you. 12And I will walk in and with and among you and will be your God, and you shall be My people. 13I am the Lord your God, Who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt. We know from 2010, what that prophetic Word said, it’s a time of God, it’s a time of shift for the body of Christ. That’s a shift for victory, and then we had that word from Brother Jerry, our Exodus has begun, that’s why this is so powerful to us when we read it. 13I am the Lord your God, Who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that you should no more be slaves; and I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect [as free men]. (Leviticus 26:7-13 AMPC) Nothing, but supernatural.
I’m going to read Amos 9, on the back of that. 13Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, (Amos 9:13 AMPC) remember in Leviticus 26, it says 5your threshing [time] shall reach to the vintage, it’s very important. because I am going to go into this in a little bit of detail, 5 and the vintage [time] shall reach to the sowing time. (Leviticus 26:5) Well, here He says here, 13…the days are coming, that the plowman, or person that plows, shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine and all the hills shall melt [that is, everything heretofore barren and unfruitful shall overflow with spiritual blessing]. Supernatural spiritual blessing. 14And I will bring back the exiles of My people Israel, and they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards and drink the wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat the fruit of them. 15And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be torn up out of their land which I gave them, says the Lord your God (Amos 9:13-15 AMPC).
This is what God gives us. This is the New Testament Exodus, based on the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. When the Lord Jesus Christ shed His Blood to make a covenant, God made that covenant with us. He said, no more are you going to be in bondage, no more are you going to, you’re going to chase your enemies, no more are you going to be subject to the things that people have been subject to as My sons and as My children.
I’m going to read to you from five different Bible commentaries, just very briefly. Here’s a commentary about Leviticus 26 and Amos 9. It says here, it is promised that the earth should produce its fruits in such great abundance that they would be kept in full employment, during both the harvest and the vintage, to gather it in. Before they had reaped their corn and threshed it, the vintage would be ready; and, before they had finished their vintage, it would be high time to begin their sowing. Long harvests are often with us the consequences of bad weather, but with them with these people, they should be the effects of a great increase.
And then another Bible commentary says, Moses led the Hebrews to believe that provided they were faithful to God, there would be no idle time between the harvest and the vintage, so great would be the increase. Adam Clarke’s commentary says, if they continued faithful to God between their harvest and vintage and between their vintage and seed time, there would be no interval so great would the abundance be. Wow, and then there is a commentary here that says, this is a beautiful promise of such an entire plenty of corn and wine, that before they could have reaped and threshed out their corn the vintage should be ready. Before they could have pressed out their wine, it would be time to sow again. The Prophet Amos, in Amos 9:13 expresses the same blessing in the same manner – the ploughman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed (Amos 9:13 AMPC).
Here is another commentary, he says here, in the new Kingdom of God, the people of the Lord will enjoy the blessing, which Moses promised to Israel,when faithful to the Covenant. The blessings will be poured upon the land in which the Kingdom of Heaven is set up. Your kingdom comes on earth as it is in heaven. I will give you of the rain of the heavens, Supernatural Increase people.
Then this commentary says, the ploughmen will reach to the reaper, even while the one is engaged in ploughing the land for the sowing, the other will be already able to cut the ripe corn; so quickly will the corn grow and ripen and the treading of the grapes will last to the sowing time, so abundant will the vintage be. The second half of this verse is taken from Joel 4:18, the melting of the hills is to be understood as dissolving into streams of milk, new wine and honey in which the prophet had the description of the Promised Land, as a land flowing with milk and honey, floating before his mind. Glory to God.
Okay, let me just read here now. Canaan, this is the same Bible commentary. Canaan and Israel are types of the Kingdom of God, and of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. I almost jumped out of my chair, when I found this, because I’ve always known it. Canaan and Israel are types of the Kingdom of God, because in the book of Galatians, in the book of Galatians, talks about the true Israel. Galatians 6:15 15For neither is circumcision [now] of any importance, nor uncircumcision, but [only] a new creation [the result of a new birth and a new nature in Christ Jesus, the Messiah]. 16Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule [who discipline themselves and regulate their lives by this principle], even upon the [true] Israel of God! (Galatians 6:15-16 AMPC)
But we are the true Israel of God, we are the spiritual Israel. The Message Bible says, 15It is what God is doing, and He is creating something totally new, a free life (people)! All who walk by this standard are the true Israel of God – his chosen people. 16Peace and mercy on them! (Galatians 6:15-16 MSG). The New Living Translation says, 16May God’s peace and mercy be upon all who live by this principle; they are the new people of God. (Galatians 6:16 NLT)
Canaan and Israel are types of the Kingdom of God, and of the Church of the Lord. The land which will flow with streams of divine blessing is not Palestine, but the domain of the Christian Church. All the earth so far as it has received the blessings of Christianity, the people which cultivates this land, is the Christian Church, so far as it stands in living faith and produces fruits of the Holy Spirit. The blessing foretold by the prophet is indeed visible at present in only a very small measure, because Christendom is not yet so pervaded by the Spirit of the Lord, so that it forms a holy people of God. But the Lord will sift it by means of judgements, and this sifting will be brought to an end and then will the earth become a Canaan, where the Lord will dwell in His glorified Kingdom, in the midst of His sanctified people.
God is promising us Leviticus 26 and Amos 9 people. There shall be such an abundance that the harvest and vintage can hardly be gathered before the time, for preparing for the next crop. Instead of the greater part of the year being spent in war, the whole shall be spent in sowing and reaping the fruits. Amos appears purposely to have described what is holy beyond nature.
Supernatural. Amos appears purposely to be describing what is holy beyond nature. In order that it might, the more appear that he was speaking of no mere gifts of nature, but under natural emblems of the abundance of gifts of grace. That means, it’s supernatural, it’s divine. So vast would be the soil to be cultivated, so beyond all the powers of the cultivator. So beyond all the powers of the cultivator, and yet so rapid and increasing in growth, that seedtime and harvest would be, but one. All shall succeed one another, that no day should be void of grain, wine and gladness, and they shall not follow only on one another, but shall all go on together in one perpetual round of fruitfulness. There shall be one unceasing inpouring of riches, no break in the heavenly husbandry, labor shall at once yield fruit. The harvest shall but encourage fresh labor. The end shall come swiftly on the beginning, and the end shall not close the past only, but issue forth anew.
I want to just praise God with you today. Heritage of Faith people, this is what God is doing, because He ends by saying, such is the character of the Gospel. Such is the character of the Gospel. It’s a Gospel of fruitfulness and abundance and plenty. It’s the gospel of the Good News, the goodness of God.
Heritage of Faith people, I want to encourage you to be bold in His goodness, I want to encourage you to go through these scriptures and let the Spirit of God speak to your heart, all of these scriptures, and let Him assure you, so that your faith can be released with force, that He is intent on blessing you, and being good to you, and bringing Supernatural Increase to you, to your life in every way, and to your family, in Jesus Name.
I just want to pray for you now. Father, I bless Your people today, in You, the precious Name of Jesus, cause Your face to shine upon Your people, Father. You give them peace and You bless them Father. I pray that not one of the Heritage of Faith people’s faith will fail them, but that they will rise up strong in faith, Father. Hallelujah. That they will believe Your Word and believe Your promises, and that they will believe and they will see Your goodness in the land of the living.
I thank You that Your Word, even this Word that was even ministered today, surrounds them and protects them and the Blood of Jesus, releases the full power of the force of the blood of Jesus, as it is known to You, Father. To protect, all of Your people, in Jesus Name Lord. Thank You, that You so flood and so fill them with all peace and joy in their believing, and in their faith, Father, that through the power of the Holy Spirit, each and every single of the Heritage of Faith people will abound and bubble over and overflow with expectations from You, for abundant harvest and supernatural increase, in Jesus Name.
God bless you all. Thank you for listening, and receiving and believing. Bye.
